Coming up, okay, cool.

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

Also make sure

00:00:12--> 00:00:17

how do we know which mic is connected to settings, you should be able to change the audio

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


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

you said Claudette

00:00:30--> 00:00:33

learn more about the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu ala he was sitting.

00:00:34--> 00:00:39

So he begins to ask around where can I find this prophet? Where can I learn more about this religion?

00:00:42--> 00:00:53

Someone informs him that these days the Prophet peace be upon him privately teaches the religion at the outcome in the house of the companion outcome or the Allahu on

00:00:55--> 00:01:03

a might have been yesterday Allah one makes his way to the outcome and he's standing outside and right there he meets another companion.

00:01:04--> 00:01:11

So he'd been seen on a roomy, someone whose biography we already covered in a previous episode

00:01:14--> 00:01:37

might have been yesterday the hola Juan asked him, What are you doing here? He didn't want to show his cards didn't want the other person to know what's going on in case this individual was a foe and he decided to turn on him. So he asked him What are you doing here? So hey, though, the hola Juan was very bold and he said, I've come here to learn about the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and listen to what he has to say.

00:01:38--> 00:02:19

Allah sama when he asked about the Allahu unresponded Well, I know what he did that. And I want the exact same thing. For the Halacha Allah He both of them entered into the house of outcome, and they met Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam presented the religion to them, the simplicity of this religion, that there is one God and that Muhammad peace be upon him is his messenger. The Quran is the final and last revelation, what Islam teaches, what are the teachings, what's the code of ethics of this religion, and as they listen to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, they're so drawn in that both of them in that gathering accepted Islam.

00:02:20--> 00:02:36

They spent the rest of the day with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then they head out from there. And now had to practice Islam like everyone else, secretly and privately. The anima point out the scholars point out that

00:02:38--> 00:03:16

amount of vinyasa the Allah 101, no Monica the masjid and PBT he, he was the first person to establish a prayer area in his home. Everyone else would pray outside somewhere or gather together and better outcome. He was a person that dedicated a part of his home to worshiping Allah subhanho wa taala. Now that now that he becomes Muslim, he's interested in having this conversation with his mom and dad. Some historians say that originally he kept it a secret didn't want his mom and dad to know. Later on, they found out they asked him what's going on here. His mom was a freed slave. His father wasn't from Makkah, didn't have any notoriety within the city. So they were considered to be

00:03:16--> 00:03:56

from the lower class of the people. And they said that I you know, I, he said, I met this prophet, and he taught me he taught this beautiful message. And the core of his message was that we are all equal. We don't serve anyone. The skin tone of ours doesn't matter. This pigmentation doesn't mean anything at all. We are all loyal servants of Allah subhanho wa taala. And a person increases in their rank in this world and also in the hereafter based off of their virtue. You don't build yourself just by your possessions, by your skill, by your strength, by your knowledge, you build yourself based off of what kind of relationship you have with God, but Allah subhanaw taala what

00:03:56--> 00:04:01

kind of person you are when you interact with other people, your humility, your character.

00:04:02--> 00:04:12

His parents were originally a little reluctant, but when they heard this pure message, and when they heard the message, the verses of the Quran, they were touched, and they also became Muslim.

00:04:14--> 00:04:53

The historian say thena LEM, yes, salam, Ebola hadden, Mina Serbia Thien al muhajir de Silva, Amar waterbuck, that other than two companions, from the earlier ones that accepted Islam, there were no others, whose both parents accepted Islam from the earlier ones, most of them, some of them had a parent that accepted Islam. Some of them had no parents except Islam. And not even yet his mother and father both accepted Islam. And the same thing happens with Abu Bakr is to declare the Allah Juan, whose parents both mother and father accepted Islam. So now you have a family in the early days of Islam that's a Muslim.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

They practice Islam privately. But however, when the Quraysh after

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

Some years passed by and Islam became a little bit more popular. They began to view it as a threat, because their entire political system was based off of a man made hierarchy, that we are superior because we're Arabs. And not only that these tribes are superior because they have victory in a particular battle. Well, these people have notoriety because they were successful in a particular type of trade, or leaders have come from these people, and now incomes Islam and says everyone's equal. You're not born into royalty. You are who you are. What's your marriage? What's your marriage? What have you made of yourself, and they viewed this as a big threat. This meant that they

00:05:39--> 00:05:47

would lose their respect that this meant that they would lose their position. When they saw Islam, as an opponent,

00:05:48--> 00:06:23

didn't spend any time listening to how simple and pure the message was. They turned against the Muslims. And they began to look for people that were vulnerable. The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said Allahu alayhi wa sallam came from a great tribe. They couldn't just go and pick him out because his tribesmen were standing behind him. Abu Bakr Syndicate, the Allah one, the second person to accept Islam, you know, from outside of the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was protected by his people he was from another notable tribe, but retain Khadija the Allahu Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is wiped from us was from a notable tribe. I believe

00:06:23--> 00:06:32

that the Allah Juan Jaffa, the Allah one, they were from the same tribe of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what the Meccans started to do was look for people that were weak, the slaves, they didn't have any tribe,

00:06:33--> 00:07:10

getting their masters and their leaders in the tribe that they were from a greater perspective, a part of turn against them would be easy. So each of these tribes that had respect, they begin to push out the weak ones from them that had accepted Islam. And now there was the stage this stadium that they had developed of torture. And each tribe wanted to prove how strong they were and how committed they were to the cause. The way they were going to do this was to torture their own, and to get them to break. Whoever could get their slave, their ally to break had proven that they were committed to this cause and they were strong, they were not weak.

00:07:12--> 00:07:30

from the tribe of bundle Mazoon. The leader of the time, was a wretched man by the name of Abuja. He was one of the key opponents of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam referred to him as the pharaoh of this ummah, of this nation.

00:07:31--> 00:07:56

Abuja had began to look for the weak spot within his tribe. And some were tucked away he found this tribe, this family of yes, it. They weren't from the tribe. They were allies of the tribe, if they turned against them. And if they brought them out and begin to torture them, who would protect them, really. It's not like they had any blood relatives. They weren't slaves. The family was brought forth.

00:07:57--> 00:08:19

On one side, you have a father who was tied up next to him as the mother, husband and wife, and then before them is their child. Individual torture is one thing, when one person has to face a consequence for what they do, or for something they've been accused of. But when you collectively torture people, it takes it to a whole different level. If you read,

00:08:21--> 00:08:57

you know, like, even what's happening right now, in a bizarre, you read the stories of what's happening in Palestine right now. And you know, you see these fathers that returned from burying their own children, mothers that returned from burying their own children, you can see the pain that this person feels is far worse than death itself. Because they're not just enduring their pain. They're enduring the pain of a beloved, someone who walks away from the burial of their own mother or father. It's a little heavier, it's a little deeper, that pain hurts more sometimes a mother sees her child in pain. And she says, God, why don't you test me instead of my child? Because that's what

00:08:57--> 00:09:11

it means to that's what happens when you love someone. Right? And this family is brought together and their torture starts. The man who was dealing with them as a stubborn man. He is the most stubborn he's as worse as it gets.

00:09:12--> 00:09:40

Abuja had begins to torture them and not only is he torturing them, but he does it in a very lewd, inappropriate, immoral manner. When he tortures somebody out of the Allahu anha I'm not or the Allahu Anne's mother. He doesn't just torture her but he begins to read lewd lines of poetry very inappropriate trying to entice her while she's in while she's bound, and he's whipping her and beating her under the scorching heat of Macau while everyone is watching them to see what happens here.

00:09:41--> 00:10:00

Yes about the hola Juan is being tortured, then he comes back to a modern tortures him and then heads over to this person heads over to that person. The Muslims are very few in number. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is still in the earliest stages. You have his companion Abubakar Siddiqa the Allah one by side was a man of wealth and anytime

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

He sees a person being tortured that as a slave, he intervenes. And he says to the master that why don't I purchase the slave from you? You won't have to worry about him being from your tribe anymore and torturing him anymore. He'll be my problem. Abubaker was a Muslim, he would use this tactic to purchase these slaves and as soon as he they would come into his possession, he would set him free. He would say go and worship Allah subhanaw taala as you will, and like this. He was setting everyone free. The issue here was, yes, it are the Allah Juan's family this entire family of Somalia Yes, it and their child, their child and their son Ahmad. They were not slaves. They couldn't be bought out

00:10:39--> 00:10:54

of slavery. Abu Bakr syndicate the Allah one wasn't able to help them. But also the last Allamani was set up to look at them from the sidelines and he would see the pain they would go in how difficult it was. With Marvin I found out the Allahu on narrates an incident.

00:10:55--> 00:11:20

He's says that a cabal to Ana when the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam filled but one day of man says I arrived with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to this open land in Morocco where they were torturing the early Muslims had to attain Allah amar in we're only he will be here we're home you're at the moon. And we passed by a model the hola Juan his mother and his father while they were being tortured.

00:11:21--> 00:11:35

For call they acid in the visa Allahu alayhi wa salam de Haruka Yasser the father, he saw and we said Allahu alayhi wa salam and he said at the Haruka, this is what time has done to us. This is what our life is, this is where we are

00:11:37--> 00:11:49

recording the visa along while it was still an issue. Maybe sort of long it was sending the Prophet peace be upon him said Be patient. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh ALLAH forgive the family of Yasser

00:11:51--> 00:11:58

and the companion when he heard the prophets say it's better to be patient he said, But file a messenger of Allah I will be patient.

00:12:00--> 00:12:07

I'm not vinyasa the Allah one. He was being tortured. And the Quraysh would would

00:12:08--> 00:12:15

would light a fire and being in very close to the fire to torture him on double Mushrik when I'm not on binnorie

00:12:17--> 00:12:32

What kind of maybe sort of long while he was selling me a movie for you middle Yoda who Allah Rossi, the Prophet of Allah will take his hand and wipe it over the head of our mud vinyasa, the allawah as he was being tortured while you're cooling and he would say yeah, no Cooney Barden was salam and Allah.

00:12:34--> 00:12:50

Oh Allah allow the spire to be peaceful in pool on Amar. Come up quinti Allah Ibrahim of fire just as you were cool and peaceful on Abraham on Ibrahim Ali Salam similarly be cool and peaceful on Ammar.

00:12:55--> 00:13:02

A moderate amount of the Allahu UN's father and his mother were tortured so severely, that ultimately his mother was killed.

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

And when

00:13:05--> 00:13:10

he took a spear and thrusted it through her body, leaving her martyred

00:13:12--> 00:13:18

not too long after that, her husband Yassa the Allah who won out of weakness also died.

00:13:19--> 00:13:27

He was also a Shaheed the first person to be martyred in the history of Islam was this lady, somebody yesterday Allah Mona,

00:13:28--> 00:14:06

she was the first person so every person after that day that has ever lost their life, every Muslim no matter where in the world they are, that is tortured, and feels that they have done wrong, they have been wronged. They remember the story of Somalia the Allahu anhu, that lady who was challenged and who was tested and who was tortured. And her strength was such that she carried her purpose through right to the end. And she said at record, she said the lesson that Muslims don't give up. Muslims don't give up because things get a little hard. Muslims don't run away because someone is pushing them on on their identity, or someone's making them feel uncomfortable. Being uncomfortable

00:14:06--> 00:14:45

is okay, because that's where growth actually happens. It's in that last rep. You know, when you're on that 10th rep and everything's burning, when you push through, that's where growth actually is. Growth isn't in giving up early. So now this whole tradition of Muslims that follow and have lived over the last 1400 years, learn this lesson that you don't give up. Go to the life of people like Malcolm X, may Allah have mercy be upon him who continue to push he knew he was going to die. He knew that he was going to be assassinated. But that didn't intimidate him. Because the man was robust. He was strong. He was well read. His time in prison changed him. He read and saw the world

00:14:45--> 00:15:00

now for what it actually was. And you go back this whole tradition links back to this lady so Miyata, the Allah Juana in the earliest days of Islam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is cheering them on with a soft heavy voice Saba

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

On your earliest in the morning the common agenda be patient or family have you acid

00:15:05--> 00:15:10

Your promised abode is paradise. Just be strong hold in there.

00:15:12--> 00:15:33

I'm not on the Allah one saw both his mom and dad be martyred and he's the last one standing and Abuja has torturing him and he keeps saying one thing he says, Say Something foul against the Prophet. I want you to publicly humiliate him. And then some say something in favor of our idols that we worship. If you do this, I will stop the torture right away.

00:15:36--> 00:15:42

I'm not even yesterday at the hola Juan, after a tremendous amount of torture caved in.

00:15:43--> 00:15:48

And he said some statements about the Prophet sallallahu It was said that he wasn't proud of

00:15:50--> 00:15:59

if now narrates that the Prophet said Allahu Allah. He was salam met Amar. He saw Amar sitting on the side, and he was crying.

00:16:00--> 00:16:08

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam sat down next to Ahmed yam. So who is he he wiping the tears from his eyes.

00:16:09--> 00:16:13

And he said, The kuffaar did to you what they did to you.

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

They tortured you.

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

So you gave them what they wanted to protect your life. If they do it again, tomorrow say the same thing again.

00:16:23--> 00:16:57

I'm bad vinyasa. The Allahu Anhu was so hurt, that he said something against the Prophet because from our perspective, this doesn't mean anything who cares? Like who cares about religion in today's world, who cares about God are messengers of Revelation. We live in a pure material world, it's all about your goals, your objectives, your success. But for these people, they live for a greater purpose. I'm out of the Allah one understood that the Prophet peace be upon him was his connection to the hereafter. The Prophet peace be upon him was the one that gave him confidence. He was the one that gave him strength. The Prophet peace be upon him was the one that was chosen by Allah for

00:16:57--> 00:17:31

revelation. How much a Muslim loves the prophets that Allahu Allah and he was sitting is unimaginable to someone who doesn't believe in Allah and His Prophet. They'll never understand it. They'll never get it. The why is it that when a child is born, a mother holds your child up high and says, I'm going to name this one Muhammad. And that happens probably 1000s of times every day. It's no coincidence that the name Muhammad is the most common name on the face of this earth, and will be till the Day of Judgment. Because that love, it's very deep.

00:17:32--> 00:18:05

It's love that social media can never buy, you know, in today's world, you can actually buy fame. But there is no fame that can match that of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because his fame was universal that lasted through history, whether you went to Indonesia, whether you went to China, whether you went to the Middle East, in a time where people didn't have ships, and they didn't have internet and they didn't have technology, that love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was placed in the hearts of mankind, unlike any other faith or any other religion, like any other faith or any other religion because that love is divine.

00:18:06--> 00:18:42

Muslims have a special connection with the prophets of Allah, Allah He was some we don't exaggerate in that love to claim that the prophet is the Son of God or he is a divine being, he is a human being. Yeah, we understand that he was a special human being. He was a human being, in a human sense, like all of us are, but he was special in the sense that he was the recipient of Revelation. So when Amara when he said that the Allah one said one statement that seemed to defile the honor of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, it was very heavy on it. And he found himself in tears crying away crying the wait. The prophets of Allah who it was sentiment, one narration asked him

00:18:42--> 00:18:55

because he continued crying, he was in a lot of pain that I don't know why I gave in. Other people were stronger no one else gave in how was I the first person to give him? The Prophet said Allah who it was Saddam, asked him gave her 32 callback.

00:18:57--> 00:19:03

Yes, you'd said something about me. He said a file thing about me. Okay. You told me how did your heart feel?

00:19:04--> 00:19:07

So he sent a messenger of Allah mattina in normal email.

00:19:08--> 00:19:12

I sent a file thing but God knows how much I love you and how content My heart is with faith.

00:19:15--> 00:19:59

And if you said Allahu Allah Salam then said that Allah azza wa jal revealed the ayah revealed the verse that when Kafa BiLlahi min da the Imani lemon Akiha, Khalid Mohammed, my number Lima, that if a person is coerced into saying a statement of disbelief, there is no harm in that as long as their heart itself is content with faith. And that's where he was. And that's what the hola Juan narrates from the Prophet peace be upon him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who said that as the tune the staff who lay him will Jana to there are three people that paradise desires. There are three people the staff who agenda to crush Taku la HeMan Jana two, there are three people that paradise awaits.

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

ally Yun was Salomon on What a moron ally that the hola Juan Salmaan are the hola Juan and Amar vinyasa the hola Juan, what is it about them that makes them different? What makes them so special that regarding them the Prophet is saying that paradise desires then it's because they lived a meaningful life. They lived a life that wasn't just about them. They lived a life greater than them. They lived a life full of legacy.

00:20:31--> 00:21:07

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrived in Madina Munawwara when he arrived to the city of Medina, actually, there's a difference of opinion among historians. Whether or not vinyasa was with a group of people that migrated to Abyssinia in the 50 year after Prophet. The majority of the historians Muslim historians are in the position that he was not from that group. He remained with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam throughout all 13 years pre migration in Mecca. And then when the Companions began to migrate from Mecca to Medina, he wasn't the earlier group of people that arrived in Medina to teach Islam he was an expert of the Quran. So he would teach people the

00:21:07--> 00:21:08


00:21:09--> 00:21:46

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrived in pulled up, right outside Medina, the companions and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam begin to construct the very first Masjid of Islam that was built by Muslims at the hands of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So as the Companions were building much of the pulled up as they were building it, amount of everyone was carrying one brick at a time they would grab a brick walk over place it there, the next group of people would, you know they would solidify that brick with some plaster and then they would do it again. I might have been yesterday the last one was carrying two bricks at once. Everyone was

00:21:46--> 00:21:51

carrying one but dollar amount of money yesterday Lebbon attain Lebbon attain.

00:21:52--> 00:22:30

Maybe said Allahu alayhi wa salam saw him, for him to be said Allahu Allah. He was sending the prophets that a lot of Saddam saw it and said, Yeah, Ma, and at that middle Miami last hubback Why don't you just stick to carrying one brick? Where are you doing double the work? Allah in neoliberal agenda mean Allah. He said, I want double the reward from my God. I'm not happy with just a single I need more in my life. I got that ambition. I have this desire that I want to be very close to my God and I want Allah subhana wa Tada to see my struggle. I want him to see my exhaustion for the sake of serving this religion in serving humanity. Maybe said Allahu alayhi wa sallam the Prophet peace be

00:22:30--> 00:23:16

upon him and said in so many Yetta le NASCI agilon Welaka giran oh son of so many people today will walk away with one reward and you shall take two Well, I feel sad because shutter button min lemon, the last thing you will drink in your life will be a sip of milk. This is a prophecy. This is a very important prophecy. What up Toluca elfia. To El Ballia to and you will be killed by the rebellious group. Let me start Allah who it was to them told him the final moments of his life. This and why this statement where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to a Marvin Yasa talk to Luca Thea to L value Ballia to that you will be killed by the rebellious group was heard by so many

00:23:16--> 00:23:29

companions. So many people have heard the Prophets saying this to him at different points. Imam shamsudeen at the hobby in his in his biographical works, he had Alama novella claims he says that this statement is actually mutawatir

00:23:30--> 00:23:57

like it's narrates narrative so abundantly by so many people that it is inconceivable that this statement has any falsehood in it at all. I'm not even yesterday hola Juan is a close companion of the Prophet peace be upon him. He is with the Prophet of Allah and during all 10 years of Medina 13 years and Mecca 10 years in Medina, all 23 years of Prophethood he is by the side of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:23:58--> 00:24:35

He participates by the side of the Prophet of Allah and all the major battles by the Ohana conduct he's there. And he began to study and learn from the Prophet of Allah. Some of the narrations that he narrates from the prophets of Allah hottie was cinnamon. I might have been yesterday Allah Juan says I heard the Prophet of Allah saying, men Canada Lisa and even if it dunya cannula holy Santa naman Na, whoever is to tongued in the world, meaning two faced in front of one group of people, that person has one persona and in front of another group of people, a totally different person. One thing is that you do you carry different personalities and different personas because you're

00:24:35--> 00:24:59

respecting the group of people that you're with, like there's a person who has a corporate job and they act a particular way. And then when they go back home, they're more chilled because they're with family. That's okay. That's called being professional. But then there's one side of you sitting in front of your own father, your mother and in front of them, you're smiling, and then the moment they turn around, you're with your friends and you say something very ill about your mom and dad. That's hypocrisy. That's what we call Lisa nanny.

00:25:00--> 00:25:33

Man Canada listen and if it dunya the prophets of Allah Islam says whoever it's two faced or two tongue in the world, Canada holy Santa naman na will be punished with two tongues in a made a fire in the hereafter. I'm not vinyasa but the hola Juan narrates and when example in one narration, he says the example of good companions the example methodologies a solitary method lotta the parallel. The parable of having good companions in this world is like being in a fragrance shop.

00:25:34--> 00:26:13

Even if you don't apply any fragrance to yourself, when you walk out, you smell better. That's the benefit of being in the masjid. That's the benefit of attending these holocausts. That's the benefit of going to the masjid for Juma prayer, that when you go to the mosque, or when you go to a place of worship, when you're surrounded by righteous people, when you sit by students of knowledge, even if you leave without taking a single note, without writing down a single word, you walk out spiritually uplifted, there's a little bit of a change that happens. Today, we were reading the works of Imam Ghazali to help Allahu Allah with the students, and even know Kodama in his mouth, the side of it,

00:26:13--> 00:26:31

he actually writes something beautiful. He says that, you know, when you are with righteous people, or when you read about righteous people, religious people, people who, you know, when you think of a religious person, you would assume that it's someone who had no worldly ambitions. Probably someone who didn't have a job, lived in a cave, maybe spent his life with rosemary beads.

00:26:32--> 00:26:41

That's not what it is not. That's not how we do it as Muslims. In Islam were taught to balance our lives in Islam are taught that you dedicate yourself to your family.

00:26:42--> 00:26:44

You work a little, you take care of your people.

00:26:46--> 00:27:25

You know, financially be strong, never asked anyone. Don't be dependent on other people. And at the same time, make sure every day you dedicate some time to your own spiritual growth. dedicate time to your spiritual health. dedicate time to worshiping Allah subhanahu wa Tada. It's a very balanced approach. One thing that I always say to students is if you want to understand what kind of balanced the prophet had in his life, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after receiving the very first revelation, he finds himself in the arms of his wife, these are the Allahu Ana who embraces him and brings them comfort. That's what family is to the Prophet. Then after that first revelation while

00:27:25--> 00:28:02

he's overwhelmed, his wife, these are the Allahu Allah is the first person that he goes to out of all the people, many of us would go to our friend or go to a social gathering. He's so overwhelmed. The first person he goes to is family, because that's what family is that everyone will leave you. People will get bored of you, people will get tired of you. But family is that one place that if you actually have people who love you and have that bond and care for you and respect you, no matter where you go in the world, when you come back, they will be waiting with their doors open. That's family. And when the Prophet peace be upon him is passing away while he's breathing his last as he,

00:28:02--> 00:28:42

you know, prepares for his transition from this world and to face death. The last place where you see him is he lies in the lap of his wife, Aisha the Allah Juana who nurses him and you know she's wiping water over his forehead and as applying medication to him and taking care of him. And he finds himself very comfortable there. I'm not vinyasa but the hola Juan he narrates in this, you know, like the example of a good friend is like being in a fragrance shop. You're around good people and they benefit you. Islam is about living a balanced life. And he met because I ended up going to LA he Ali. He writes that the reason why In Islam we have such an emphasis on being around good

00:28:42--> 00:29:20

people. And the reason why the Scholars say and the decrease Salah Hina Tangela, Rama, that at the mention of righteous people, their mercy from God descends because when you read about righteous people, when you sit with righteous people, there is a new world that opens up to you, you begin to develop an ambition. You see someone who reads Quran every day, you probably read no Quran and you think yourself man, it wouldn't be bad to read some Quran. I'd like to increase in my recitation of the Quran. I see someone doing wicked remembering Allah subhanaw Without I think to myself, I don't do that that guy doesn't affect I can do it I can do it. It's like a person who goes to the gym you

00:29:20--> 00:29:54

work you're as good as your workout partner is. It's like when you when you if your person wrestles or if they if they have any sort of you know, grappling a part of their life where you are you spar with someone you're as good as your partner is. You get stuck with the person that isn't that isn't pushing you you're not going to reach your limits. And when you're around people who are kind of trying to walk both lives where in the world they want to be successful as a phenom teaches us to be an effing duniya hustler. And they're also trying to be successful in terms of their Hereafter with an academic center. Then you end up finding great growth and he says, because it says that that

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

ambition that comes into existence is 10 Zero Rama that is the mercy of God descending

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

So always read the stories of the prophets read the stories of the companions, when you hear these, these incidents from their lives, it motivates you and encourage you that if this person can do it, so can I.

00:30:16--> 00:30:18

In another narration,

00:30:19--> 00:30:22

I might have been yesterday with the Allahu onair. It's that

00:30:24--> 00:31:00

that a person came to him. And he said that I've never faced any difficulty in my life. So I might have been an asset of the Allah who once said, you're not one of us because we've all struggled in life. You know, the average person has got through, gone through a lot in life. Everyone has their own story. Everyone has their own talk, their own walk, someone's gone through a divorce, someone's gone through, you know, loss of child, someone's gone to loss of a parent. Some people are just struggling to find companionship and love in life. Some people have health issues. Everyone saw my vinyasa the hola when that guy says, I've never been through any difficulty in life. He says less

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

the minute you're not one of us because we are a people that are very comfortable with going through struggles.

00:31:07--> 00:31:23

I heard the Prophet peace be upon him saying that when a believer is tested by Allah subhanho wa taala. When a believer goes through difficulty in life, and in that moment, rather than just pushing through the motions, the believer aligns their intention and reminds himself that,

00:31:25--> 00:31:28

you know, no matter how hard things are, My Allah is with me.

00:31:30--> 00:31:50

People can't hear what I'm going through. Nobody knows people are standing here judging me. But Allah knows what's in my heart. Allah knows my challenges. Allah knows where I am in my life, Allah knows of my struggles. No one needs to be perfect. Right? Again, there's this assumption, right? That in order to be religious, I need to be perfect. No one needs to be perfect. You just need to be honest and sincere with yourself.

00:31:51--> 00:32:00

That's where religion comes into place, that you're honest with yourself, that this is where I am in my life. This is where I need to grow. These are my weak points in life. Right?

00:32:01--> 00:32:11

So he says the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that Allah azza wa jal, he allows the sins of a person to fall off the individual that is tested just as leaves fall off of a tree.

00:32:12--> 00:32:14

In one narration,

00:32:15--> 00:32:18

I'm not going to answer the Allahu omnaris as Narrated by Abu chef unless But honey.

00:32:19--> 00:32:58

This narration is narrative I've been playing around with Ally ally in his famous book JELA and father salada data Muhammad hated so in that book in areas that have not been answered with the Allah one set that maybe said Allah I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, in that Allah hemella Can Allah smart Allah, Allah, that Allah azza wa jal has appointed an angel for who according to Allah covering either me to who stands at the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and anytime Elisa had a new salah, Alia Salatin, Illa Kalia, Mohamed, Salah Ali cupola Laguna for learning, that anytime anyone sends Salawat or salutations upon the Prophet, that angel

00:32:58--> 00:33:03

conveys it to the prophet that so and so the son of so and so give you some

00:33:05--> 00:33:18

color for your solid rubber Allah Delica Raju will be equally wide at the National. So in response ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada sends tense on a lot upon that individual. So there is a there is an angel that conveys the setup of the Ummah to me.

00:33:19--> 00:33:49

I'm not even yesterday, the hola Juan Juan said Guthaben multi Viva death is the best reminder. You know, it's obviously death is no one was talking about that so morbid. So dark by so sad. No one wants to talk about that. But when you drive past the graveyard, the reality hits you that these were the people that were strong and healthy. And these were the people that ruled the world 50 years ago, 100 years ago, 150 years from now, not one person in this gathering is going to be alive. As much as that sucks. It's the truth.

00:33:50--> 00:34:21

Not one person in this gathering is going to be alive 100 years, 50 years from now it's gonna be a whole different group of people here. And it's going to continue this has been happening for 1000s of years and it's going to go on. So I might have been yesterday alone. One his statement is fab and multiply the death is the best reminder. It's a reminder that whatever material you have will disappear. Your wealth will belong to someone else your house will be in someone else's your car will be someone else's, what actually stays with you. And that's the second part. Waka Fabia fini. Lina is your conviction and belief in God. That's what's going to be with you when you go to your

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

grave your wealth will be left behind. And the angel will come and ask you Who was your Lord? Who is your prophet? What was your faith?

00:34:29--> 00:34:30

reality hits you.

00:34:31--> 00:34:39

Walk a fabulously bad at the show Hello. And if a person is unoccupied why not use that time but a bad to worship Allah subhanahu wa Tada

00:34:41--> 00:34:47

I might have been yesterday the Allah Juan says that one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to visit him while he had a severe fever.

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

Maybe said Allahu Allah alayhi wa sallam said to him and that will only mocha rakia Tamra carne, Bihar, Djibouti Ronnie Sana, shall not teach you a few statements to say that angel Jibreel said to me when I was sick

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

He said a messenger of Allah of course teach me what should I say when I'm not feeling well? This is the perfect time to learn this prayer because everyone's under the flu these days like everyone's sick

00:35:10--> 00:35:48

but Allah who is Mila RP? Allah who yes fig mean colada and Vic the Prophet peace be upon upon them this very simple statement Bismillah RP in the name of God do I seek cure for you? Well Allah we should seek God is the one that cures men colada in the from all ailment that you face that every difficulty that you face turn to God and ask Him for cure. And that cure can come in any form. For some person that comes in one form or another person that comes in another form. There is no like, and I've talked about this before, you know you study history and you study the history of the world and you study medicine. And different cultures have different ways of medicating their ill.

00:35:50--> 00:36:21

You know, they have different ways of doing it. Today what works for people in the form of Tylenol and Advil, people have their own ways of dealing with painkillers in the past it was one herb or another. They had one thing working for them another thing worked for them. And Allah subhanaw taala allows cure to exist in different remedies. But ultimately, the one that allows that cure to work is Allah that's the Muslim belief right? That I can take all the medicine I want but if God doesn't allow that medicine to take effect, it's not going to do anything and no illness can harm me unless Allah subhanaw taala allows that illness to do what it intends to do.

00:36:23--> 00:36:33

I'm not of any asset of the Allah Juan was once seen his son Muhammad he narrates and I saw my father praying six records after mother

00:36:34--> 00:36:39

are you to Amara and the acid amount of the acid in your saliva and mother baby Sitara cotton

00:36:41--> 00:37:06

color and when I saw him pray, I asked him you know what were you praying so he said, Are you to Habibi Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I saw my beloved rasool Allah and the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praying six o'clock after Muhammad. And then the Prophet said, Whoever prays six records after a moment of Allah will forgive all of their sins, even if it is equivalent to the froth of the ocean. This is that salata lovin

00:37:08--> 00:37:10

later on in his life.

00:37:11--> 00:37:52

He was appointed as a governor of Kufa Emad vinyasa the Allah when was this happened after Saab there are people close to the Allah one was demoted. And go for the Shaco sad and for federal for other who are well, Amara Massanutten Kufa they were complaints find a file against sada the Allah one two I'm gonna do Katara the Allah one a lot of accusations it's a whole story of its own. So I'm gonna the Allah one in order to to create stability in that region. He then brought in a lot of vinyasa the hola Juan and I'm not even yesterday Allah one. He was there for quite some time. While he was there, he would leave the Juma prayer even Masuda the Allah one would give, you know give

00:37:52--> 00:38:04

talks, but the actual Jomo huzzah and the prayer was led by I'm not being asked to be alone because they were both in Kufa, another love the Amika and he asked me somewhere that will hold the bottle Giamatti, Amir wah, wah Ma, I'm out of the Allah, one would need it.

00:38:07--> 00:38:40

In one nourishing can I'm not Alena Senate and you have to be enough equilibrium it here I imagine. So that being a mammoth and so that when he would deliver his sermon, he would put on a black turban that was his sort of look, he would deliver his service. He was someone that didn't speak much long silences, and if you paid attention to what he would be whispering, while sitting alone, are you doing better than him and fitna, he will be saying the statement that I seek protection from God from any sort of calamity or trial. Even better, man, you know fitna Island man fitna.

00:38:43--> 00:38:50

However later on in his life he was also replaced as a governor by Satan Ahmed have been a puppet of the hola Juan

00:38:51--> 00:39:02

so someone so I'm gonna be a long one asked a model later on that were you upset when I removed you from the position? Automatically? I'm not Asaka as Luna yaka.

00:39:04--> 00:39:07

So I'm not of the Allahu and said I was more hurt the day you appointed me.

00:39:10--> 00:39:20

I was a little sad that you removed me but actually the day you appointed me I felt so much pressure. There was so much responsibility placed on me that actually that day was more rough than the day you remove me.

00:39:25--> 00:39:27

We'll jump to the end of his life.

00:39:28--> 00:39:33

During the Halacha of Allah, the Allah one there was a fitna that occurred

00:39:35--> 00:39:45

which resulted in while we are the Allah one facing off against it, that the Allah one and the battle that ensued was referred to as the Battle of Sufi

00:39:46--> 00:39:49

a matter the Allah one was on the sight of Allah, the Allah one.

00:39:50--> 00:39:53

And one day, he said to one of his companions

00:39:55--> 00:39:57

bring me some milk

00:39:59--> 00:39:59

and his companion

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

I brought him milk machete with the McCall he drank from the milk and said

00:40:06--> 00:40:19

I remember the day the Prophet of Allah said to me in the Acela Shabbat in Tasha Wilhemina dunya Shabbat to Lebbon the last thing that you will consume in your worldly life will be milk. I just drank that now.

00:40:21--> 00:40:29

I've lived enough in this world. He was 93 years old, very old. I've lived too much in this world. Today is the day that I will be martyred.

00:40:30--> 00:40:36

Medaka dama tokoto. He then push forward in the battlefield.

00:40:37--> 00:40:38

One of his

00:40:39--> 00:40:44

students in sun he narrates that right before he went into the battlefield I heard him saying,

00:40:45--> 00:40:46

as if a theologian

00:40:47--> 00:41:00

that the Paradise and the gardens of Paradise have come close, it's time for me to enter them. And Yamanaka Habiba Anam, Hamid. Today I shall reunite with the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

00:41:01--> 00:41:11

He then entered into the battlefield, and he was struck, and when they remove the helmet from his head, they saw it was a mod vinyasa the hola Juan

00:41:14--> 00:41:21

neither the Allah one was the one who performed his funeral prayer.

00:41:22--> 00:41:48

I'm not been yesterday, the Allah one was a great companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and a man of great honor. Dignity, who wasn't a fate afraid of sacrifice, who was a bearer of the torch of light. People turned to him in terms of in times of darkness, and mob vinyasa, the loved one was strong willed.

00:41:49--> 00:42:12

Yet one thing beautiful about his story is that when things got hard, and he said something against the profits, that Allahu Allah, He was certain, as hard as it was for him at that moment, like I look at the story in that specific moment in his life as a moment of weakness. That weakness is a result of humanity, of being a human being. It's not weakness that adds any stain to him.

00:42:13--> 00:42:18

It's a weakness that that we have as human beings. But we turned to his story to see that that weakness didn't define him,

00:42:19--> 00:42:21

became something stronger.

00:42:22--> 00:42:25

His shahada wasn't written the day that his mother and father received their Shahada.

00:42:26--> 00:42:32

His martyrdom wasn't written that day. Allah subhana wa Tada had written martyrdom for that entire family.

00:42:33--> 00:42:35

But his was to come later.

00:42:36--> 00:42:58

After learning this Hadith from the abuse of Allah, Allah He was sent him after being such a great teacher and mentor for the Ummah and ultimately biding by the sight of his dear beloved companions, that Allah azza wa jal allow us to benefit and learn from the example of these great companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and allow us to be resurrected in their ranks for so Allahu Allah Allah Allah Mohammed Salam aleykum warahmatullahi
