today by the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala
we gather to study the story of the great companion over a sort of loss and a long line and he was setting him. Abdullah ibn Umar radi Allah one.
Among the MaHA detune and Fatah, there is this term
Abba de la Aruba,
which refers to the four famous Abdullah's
when the scholars of Hadith are fifth, make this reference. The idea is that this is a strong position that all four of the laws narrate this incident or agree upon this position.
Who are these four Abdullah Abdullah herba
Imam a neighborhood Allah here Ali, he points out that during the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from the Companions there were over 200 of doulas
and this honor that the MaHA detune gave to the for great Abdullah's in their fields, is reserved for Abdullah bin Ahmad or the Allahu Taala and
Abdullah Hibino Ambassador the Allah one Abdullah Ignaz Zubaydah the Allahu Mohan
and lastly, Abdullah bin Ahmed and asked about the hola Juan
these are the four companions
Now, the reason why these four were gathered together as the Ebola Autobot is because they were younger, and they lived very long lives. And their students were many
above them was in was another companion of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also known as Abdullah, whose name is not included in the four not because he narrated little or because he wasn't a sign symbol of seniority, but rather because he was just much older and age and these companions lived longer lives and that was saved in Abdullah ibn Masuda the Allah one. When the narrator is of Hadith mentioned the name Abdullah Abdullah Abdullah without any attribution
it commonly refers to even muscularity Allah one that when they say Abdullah said this or the hadith is narrated by Abdullah it is attributed to Cedra of Allah who must return to the hola one.
Now going back to say that even Amara, the hola one Abdullah ibn Amr, as you can tell by his name, he is Abdullah the son of Omar. And this Ahmed is referring to a meter meaning Ahmed Abdullah Baba or the Allah Juan, the great companion of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and leader of the Muslims.
I'm loving the Allah who accepted Islam at a young age and migrated with his father to Madina, Munawwara
he did not hit the age of puberty, even after he arrived, Madina Munawwara
he desired to be enlisted for the battle of odd, but Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rejected him.
And it was purely based off of his young age. The first battle that he actually participated alongside and if you said Allahu alayhi wa salam, now he's 1415 years old, a little older, is the battle of the trenches.
And then after that, they are children of Juan and everything that follows from there onwards he is by the side of Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam, and all the major expeditions.
His mother along with his sister, on one minion, have side of the Allahu anha,
who became later on the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was one person.
They shared the same mother and the same father. Her name was Xena Binta mother own, the sister of the famous of Mahna Mahna mother on Al Juma he or the Allahu Taala
No matter the hola Juan story is fascinating and it's beautiful. He is a symbol of Islam. He was the standard of about sunnah. Following the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We will learn from the story of abdominal the hola Juan how he was a legend when it came to generosity when your turn to the chapter of worship, when it came to the issue of simplicity his students are so many and they all narrate these beautiful moments for us that if no matter the Allah one, this was my interaction with him. This is what I signed up to love and I'm gonna be alone. This is how he worshipped if an almighty Allah who won if he missed his shot Salah and Gemma his students narrate
he would not sleep for the rest of the night. He would then spend the rest of the night in a bada because he wanted to make up for the virtual he missed out on by not praying I shall Salah and Jamar many stories like this Imam Abdullah Ali, while listing the names of the students of abdominal the Allah one. The list goes on and on and on. For many of the other companions when you read in the CRR lamina button. It'll be a few lines maybe a paragraph two paragraphs of the names, but for Satana even Ahmed or the hola Juan he narrates over 200 people 200
And among them were Sahaba. And among them were also great Tabby, Amin Sahaba would come and narrate from this Abdullah bin Omar, the Allah one who was younger in age, bear in mind that at the time of hunda, which happened in the fourth year after migration, he was 14 years old. Some of the time to be said Allahu Allah, he was seven passes away. He's somewhere around his 2021 years of age, but Senior Companions come to him. And they're asking him, tell us about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he narrates narrations regarding how to be sort Allahu Allah He was sent him a drink water. How did the province of Allahu alayhi wa salam? You know, what were the Sunnah of Nabi sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam, even when it came to something like relieving oneself, you'll find the narrations of a blood and omega the Allah on there, after seven or eight out of the hola Juan who is considered among them Hadith going to be the top narrator of Hadith. The second person whose name is listed is the great companion, Abdullah bin Amarante. Allah one
a person is understood by their students. We learned so much about a person by studying what kind of people they're able to prepare, what kind of human beings they can develop. giving a lecture is a nice thing. Writing a book is also a nice thing. But for longevity, for mass impact, you need someone at the center who has the ability to relate to people and to create other great people. That was the beauty of Rasulullah sallallahu. It was that he said Allah Juana, he was salam had amazing lectures and amazing talks, and every word of his was phenomenal.
But one of the greatest miracles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the greatest gifts to the OMA was the Sahaba one Allah Yachty which made each and every one of them was so special.
Fountains of knowledge and wisdom. Now you turn to someone like have the love and Amara, the Allah one. And we're going to go through the list of some of his students. And you see people like hustling and bustling, you see signs of new job aid. Everyone will say you thought OHS or weapons obey Mujahid Muhammad Allah serine Qasim and Mohammed Mamoon no Mahan McCool and as the and many others in each of these people were giants. Each name here represents a legend a pillar of of knowledge and Islam. And at the top of this, among the many companions who built this generation, also was the name of Satana Abdullah had been on on on the Allahu Taala on
Now, regarding his name, there's somewhat of a difference of opinion. Most scholars agree that his name from birth was Abdullah. There is another narration that one companion narrates that one of my friends passed away. His name was Abdullah and Hadith been just as he said, When it came time for burial I was there if no one was there, and even nominated last was also there. The three of us our names were OS, which means disobedient that was our birth name. This is what he says
Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to go into the grave and said you are the servants of Allah go into the grave and lower your friend. So we went into the grave, we lowered his body. And thereafter because the Prophet referred to us as Abdullah, that the three of you are Abdullah, our names then became Abdullah.
Many of them will Hadith even reject this narration. Because, obviously, because there are some issues regarding the Senate and some of the narrators in the Hadith, and what is commonly known is that Abdullah bin Ahmed or the Allah Juan's name was Abdullah from birth, he was always known as Abdullah.
Now if you're wondering, why would someone named their child to us disobedient
among the Arabs having names like this was a sign of manly manliness, and it was a sign that someone was tough. They had very violent names, you know.
So acid was one of them to similarly there's another narration that is not authentic but common among some and you even see sometimes these statements being written in books that have sort of the Allahu Ana and if the Almighty Allah one brother and sister accepted Islam before their own father, before Ahmed Katara the Allah one this was also unlikely because that would mean that
you know, I'm gonna I'm gonna the Allah hawan accepted Islam at a very young age. And the son of the chain to this is also not a connected not a mortal sin narration it's a Monica narration.
If not one of the Allahu wa narrates one incident. He was lucky because his sister was half side of the Allah and had the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So because of that he had a unique access to the Prophet of Allah he was able to not only ask questions to Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam directly, but also use his sister as someone to ask questions on his behalf.
He says that people that are in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with share their dreams to the Prophet of Allah. I was young one night I was sleeping in the masjid and I saw a dream of two angels approaching me and they took me to this fire. It was terrifying. It was very scary. And you know, as they brought me close to the fire, I started saying our Altavilla human inner are all the bIllahi min and now I seek protection with Allah from the fire.
And then the angels turn to Him and they said, there's nothing to fear you have nothing to worry about.
So then he woke up and shared this dream with me Nene have started the Alana, who then asked Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the interpretation and in response to this, and then he said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam said one statement. Now Mr. Raja do Abdullah lo Karna. You Salim in a lane. how great of a servant how great of a person is Abdullah? Only if he dedicated more time to worshiping Allah during the night hours, only if he dedicated more time to a bother.
So the narrator says for kind of other who Lionel Momina lady la Khalida, after a sort of loss that Allahu alayhi wa sallam said the statement of the love and amount of the Allah Juan then spent very little of his night and sleep. Most of it he spent a week reading Quran making dua and worshiping Allah subhanahu wa Tada.
When, if I'm going to the Allah one was on his deathbed
say during the debate, he narrates that went, no matter the Allah who was on his deathbed, I heard him saying, we heard him saying we heard him saying that
there are three things that I regret a lot in my life.
I'm going to really regret missing out on fasting during the middle of the hot day.
There was a pleasure in that staying hungry for the sake of Allah. The second thing that I have regret over as I leave this world, is the joy and pleasure of worshipping Allah in the middle of the night. Knowing that Allah subhanahu wa taala gave me to feel, to hear the alarm in our context, to stand up from my bed, to have the strength to do with who to then spend some time worshiping Allah azza wa jal that this wasn't something that everyone was able to do, but Allah azza wa jal gave me the tofield to do it. This is something I'm really going to miss. And the third thing I wish I had stood up against the rebels and stood by the side of Ali ibn Abi Talib Rhodiola one I really not I
really regret not being with Allah, the Allah one in the battles by his side supporting him and the right cause something he lamented over and had tremendous regret over even right until he passed away.
Not only Allah Han was known
by everyone in Madina, Munawwara. And
so many people narrated Hadith from him, including his own servants including his own children. Remember how to hunt Allah hiya Ali says that the most authentic chain of Hadith sahih al Hassan II, the McLaughlin Malik or naffaa and abnormal
Malik Imam Malik, who narrates from Nafisa who narrates from abdomen. This is the most authentic chain that exists because each of these 3.3 people were giants and accepted by all no one made any sort of accusation against any of these people, that their integrity wasn't where it should have been. That they weren't truthful, that they were confused people that these people didn't have a deep understanding of knowledge. Each of these people were the best of their time. Malik interfere and abnormal in America. Allahu Allah uses the sonnet quite frequently in his Mata when narrating Hadith naffaa That same student of anomala the Allah when he narrates Lonavala in Lavinia Amara,
either Tebah Ara surah Allah La Quinta Hara Medina, if you were to see even Amara, the Allahu wa and my teacher, and how particular and punctual he was when it came to following the Sunnah visa Allahu alayhi wa salam you would say the man is lost in love. Have ImageNet when
he's no longer looking left or right. He doesn't care about what people see what people think is phenomenal. The hola Juan is obsessed with the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Ana he was
the same student again nothing on the merits and the nebula Amara camera yet I thought Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Kula McCann in Salafi if not a lot of the Allah one would trace back on the roads and paths and the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam traveled on and where the prophet of Allah prayed Salah while he was alive.
Hatha in the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa salam Nasrallah that shows a lot in Ghana and yet I had Tilka shadow right until the point that wants to be said Allahu alayhi wa sallam was traveling and he stopped under a tree to pray Salah if no matter the Allah one noted that exact tree down and every time he had passed by that tree, he would stop and pray Salah in that same place
for Su fie Asli Halima and he would manage that tree to make sure it would not go dry or it would not die.
That I'm going to take care of this tree. My Prophet prayed Salah here, I will keep this tree alive. He would come there water the tree, pray some Salah and move on. And we as students saw how much of this man loves rasool Allah Allahu Allah He was sent him one time again same naffaa narrating, says one time if no matter the Allah one heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying lo Talaq no huddle babble in this app. How beautiful would it have been if we left this door specifically for women to come and come and go from
the Mosque of their suit Allah Allah Allah He was some women who would attend. So if this area this path was left for them so they can come in and go at their own convenience. Carla Neff naffaa file Amjad, call men who ignore Mr Hatta not
ignore the Allah one never went near that door until he died. Because the prophets that Allahu Allah was Saddam had a desire that path be kept specifically for the women.
One of his students narrates
I never saw if no matter the hola Juan hearing the mention of a sort of loss of Allahu alayhi wa salam in LA Baca, but he fell into tears. He would cry immediately just by hearing the name of Rasulullah sallallahu Mata he was sending
another one of his students says the one time a person sat in front of him no matter the hola Juan and recited the ayah Surah Nisa I am number 45 Okay for you that didn't mean timbi Shaheed was it Nabokov? Allahu Allah is Shahida the same verse when recited to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by Abdullah Haman was ruler of the Allah one. At that moment when he when he must rule those reciting this verse. The Prophet of Allah broke out into tears. So now a person recites this verse in Amara the Allah one for Gianna ignore Amara Yep, key. If no matter the Allah wants to cry, and not just one or two tears came out of his eyes, his beard and his garment became soaked in tears.
One person then turned to the recycler and said buddy, stop. Look at this man state. How much are you going to read this idea? Every time you read it he breaks out into tears again axin data shift slow it down a little bit take it easy on him.
not found error rates that when abnormal or the hola Juan would recite the idea of certainty.
Hadith verse number 16 And then yet Nene Latina and Chaka Luba, homely decorilla womaniser laminal, Huck, LM Yanni leadin Manu, and Tushar coloboma, Nicola has a time not come for the believers that their hearts fall into the fear of Allah subhanahu wa Tada and Tasha Kulu boom, Nicola for the remembrance of Allah that their hearts are humbled that fear comes into their heart.
Well, mine is that I'm going to talk after all that has been revealed from the truth, Baca Hatha Yoga neighborhood Buka he would cry until tears would overcome him, meaning the state of crying wouldn't just be something small. It wasn't just a few tears, but it would overcome him his entire state, what he would enter like into a trance of just crying, the state where he couldn't control himself anymore simply by the reciting of an ayah of the Quran.
Even no matter the Allah one was known for his a bother.
Someone asked Nafion His servant and hadham
that tell us about the phenomenon of the Allah one inside his home. We've seen him outside the home, mankind is now even O'Meara Fie, Manzini, God Karla Lottie, if
you ask how Obama was at home, you would not be able to match him.
They said no, tell us tell us what his life was inside the house.
l Whoa, equally Salatin while most half a female Boehner Houma, that's it. Even all the hola hawan would perform a fresh will do for Salah and then until the next Salah he was down and read the Quran there was nothing else there. That was his entire life. He would read the Quran, pray salaam read Quran and then the next law
Nafion narrates that when no matter the hola Juan, a nebula Amara kinda either Toller Isha oficina yeah Battiato at that if he missed Aisha Salah in JAMA. He would then spend the rest of the night in worship. He would not sleep that night.
Nothing narrates when a student all the details everything he saw it all observed it all preserved at all. Nathanael narrates matter even though Omar had that matter even Amara had that article Alpha insane and oh sad. That my master and teacher of the love and Amara, the Allah one did not leave this world until he had freed over 1000 slaves. He would set him free and set him free and anyone he saw in slavery wherever he could he would purchase them and set them free.
Nothing merits MA We are the Allah one cent if no matter the Allah
one 100,000 coins be me at the end. From a holla Leigh Hill Hello. We're in the human Hashi. One year had not even passed by and he had nothing left if no I'm gonna be Allah Juan spent all 100,000 on the football and the Misaki
his students narrate that when they've nominal the hola Juan was in a public area
how much time I have no amount of fun my lucky yes sir here on what I can be wrong Allah Salah Molly, every person he passed by
if it was a young child or elderly person, every person that he passed by if no matter the Allah Juan when it gets down to them, which is a sign of not only his love for the Sunnah of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But you can also see from this, his humility and his humbleness that's such a great giant and scholar and Sahabi of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, you would expect people would come and say salaam to him to honor him. But before they even noticed him, if not, I'm gonna be Allah, one would approach them and he would give them Saddam.
He was such a lover of the Sunnah, that not only did he practice it, but he refused to follow the footsteps of people who went against the Sunnah. That's another side of following the Sunnah. One thing is that individually a person does everything to follow the Sunnah on the other side, you see someone else doing something and promoting something that seems to be religious, a bitter and
you just walk away it's none of my business. No, they made it their problem they made it their business because they understood as a scholars teach us the opposite of sin that just says the opposite of night is day this is opposite of hot is cold, the Mojave throne, and the other Nova they say the opposite of sunnah is
better, they are literally opposites, the two cannot coexist. Either you have a bitter or you have a sunnah, right? So if no matter the Allah who won on time he was with someone and a person next to him sneezed.
individual who was responding to the sneeze. He said hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah.
When a person sneezes a say in hamdulillah in response, we are taught by the Prophet of Allah to say
your hummock Allah, may Allah has mercy be upon you. But instead of saying hubback Allah He said something else which is actually very beautiful what the man said. The man said Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah all praises for Allah and may peace and blessings be upon the Prophet of Allah. If no matter the Allah Juan said, Well, Anna Kudo Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Lakin Maha cada Ala Moana rasool Allah, that I also say this, I believe in this too, that all praises for Allah and peace and blessings be upon the Prophet of Allah. But this is not what the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to say at this point, the Prophet of Allah taught us that
when someone sneezes and they say Alhamdulillah, in response we should say, your hummock Allah. He taught the person the lesson immediately.
A person came from Kufa to Obama or the Allah one. And he said
that people in Kufa have started making some interesting claims. The famous theological deviance that began to spread in Kufa was a middle and often which meant that there is no predestination God does not know of anything before it happens. There's nothing written by Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no documentation of any of it. Everything just happens as Hollywood says, Every man creates their own destiny. Right? So that's the idea that there's nothing written by Allah subhanaw taala we aren't slaves of Gods we aren't servants of God everything's already written. Now if not a lot of the Allah one when you heard this, he immediately said that he was they were referring to my brother
Johnny in the group. So in response to that, no matter the hola Juan said that go and tell them that I have nothing to do with them. And they will have nothing to do with me until they believe in others. That we Muslims believe that good fate good and bad are both from Allah subhanahu wa Tada. Right. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given every human being the ability to choose every really every human being chooses between what they do right now you can choose to sit here and walk out of this room, this is your choice, but there is no of Allah subhanho wa Taala the knowledge that Allah subhanaw taala has of what you will choose is with Allah and you cannot change. You know, the word
for this concept that Allah subhanaw taala has, has a knowledge of everything that we do in Arabic is covered, which could also be literally translated as an estimation. And a person's estimation is based off of how well they know something. Someone knows a car. Well you ask them how much is his car? They'll say that oh, it's $5,000 You asked me who knows nothing about cars. You know, how much is this car worth? I might say 50,000 It means nothing because I don't know. Allah subhanahu Matata is a creator of His creation. He knows every intimate thought every intimate detail of a father can almost tell you what his son will do. If a mother can tell you that how will my child respond to
this scenario for brother can say that about his brother friend could say that about their friend with limited knowledge, no matter how much we claim to know them. Imagine the knowledge of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And beyond that time and space in itself are both creations of Allah. Allah subhanahu wa taala is not bound by them. God is not bound by his own creation. So what exists for us over a period of time to Allah subhanahu wa taala as if it's all in one moment, Allah azza wa jal is knowledge is complete. Now we do accept that the human being has the ability to make decisions and make good choices. So when the Prophet of Allah was asked regarding the matter of idea, someone
said, Oh, God, oh, Messenger of Allah, if everything's already been written, then what's the point? What's the point of doing anything? And that's the beauty of Islam, that these questions were asked directly to the Prophet of Allah. You look at, for example, Christianity, and you look at the Gospels, you look at St. Paul and his teachings, these are all people who narrate from the Saudis Salaam 40 to 50 years after his lifting from the dunya. None of these people actually live during the time of Satan. Are you Saudi Saddam, or actually narrate directly from the Saudi Islam? Do you know Prophet Jesus, they don't narrate directly from him. They weren't direct students of his, you
know, Saul, Paul never saw He saw a Salam during his life. He never met with him yet such a significant part of Christianity is based off of his testimony, his teaching his preaching.
He never saw a Saudi Salam once in his life. And the same could be said regarding the other gospels. And in Islam, the story is very different. In Islam, these questions were asked directly from the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam
and maybe sort Allahu Allah He was salam answered these issues one by one directly himself
then a messenger of Allah what's the purpose of you know doing things if it's all just written by Allah subhana wa Tada everything's already written what's the point?
Maybe said Allahu Allah He was salam answered back my saying I'm aloof Aquila and we are certainly Mahalia color when you are trying to contend with the knowledge of God.
If a person claims that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada did not know what I'm doing, mine is going to do in the next moment. That means we claim deficiency in God's knowledge and as Muslims that is impossible. We refuse any deficiency in our God in Allah azza wa jal in the Quran says Allah Alene and hubby are knowing very fully informed, not one thing passes Allah subhanaw taala. But he knows it.
However, in this moment, right now, for every for everything that you do, there are multiple options and you need to choose which option you will you with you wish to you wish to take on which one you wish to be held accountable for. And that option, even though in this moment, it's your choice, Allah subhanaw taala has knowledge of it. And the knowledge of something does not equate to is not equal to an action. I can have knowledge of something but that knowledge in itself isn't enough until I actually do it. If a person goes to court and says I have knowledge that tomorrow this person is going to do something it means nothing. On the Day of Judgment. Allah subhanaw taala
establishes that he sabb not based off of only his knowledge that something was gonna happen but rather based off of the actions you what you did in the dunya someone asked monatomic and I'm with ALLAH he only that how much of my god how much of my god do I actually have control of so monatomic Nymphalidae gave a beautiful analogy he said you're standing on two feet raise one he raised one he said not raise the other he said I can't that's the reality. I live in a Toyota the hola Juan while explaining once the issue of other one time he was traveling and he stopped over for
so he told the person would you mind watching over my horse let me go inside of prey. So the man was watching over earlier the Allahu ones horse he went inside he prayed his prayer when he came back out the horse was there his saddle was gone
it phenomenal the Allah one in that moment was actually holding on to tender humps 10 golden coins 10 dinar sorry, and his intention was to give that guy that did him that silver that dinar that golden coin. He was going to give the guy some money as a kind as a kind gesture as a gift. Thank you for waiting for me. But now that he got outside that money that he was holding in his hand, he couldn't give it to that person anymore. Put it back in his pocket. The guy was missing. His saddle was missing. couldn't ride a horse without a saddle that's dangerous. So he walked his horse to the nearby market. He found a store that was selling saddles and he went to a guy and he said I need to
buy a saddle the guy said well describe for me what you want and he described his the saddle that he was looking for like something with this specification this material this this that that guy said oh well you're in luck. I just came into the perfect saddle for you he pulls out earlier the Allahu unsettle
This is a saddle right here.
I know the Allah one says that's my saddle. He said well I bought it so you're gonna buy it. I put money into this.
Allah the Allahu Allah agrees he purchases a saddle mount set on his animal right when he's about to leave, he turns back to the man and asks him how much did he sell it to you for?
He said for 10 coins.
Earlier the Allah one turned to his companions and says 10 coins were always studied.
He was destined to have those 10
Whether he received them through halal or haram was his choice.
He chose the wrong path. Emmylou for Kulu Yes, Arun Lima Haleakala for Allah subhanho wa Taala facilitates the path for which you are created. Focus on what you can do in this moment. That's where your focus should be. And if things don't work out for you, it's okay go back to the drawing board and continue. Sometimes you give it your best and the class doesn't work out the job doesn't work out the relationship doesn't work out it's okay. Well call to the lady here machete human Allah fit good and bad are both from Allah subhanahu wa Tada. The good is from Allah subhanahu wa Tada. So we exercise gratitude to Allah. We learn to be thankful that I'm thankful that things are going good
right now. They're going well in my life. I'm thankful that I have freedom. I'm thankful that I have shelter. I'm thankful that I have faith. I'm thankful that I have wealth. I'm thankful for the people that love me and the people that I'm able to love shook and on the other hand, there are rough days. And when those rough days come you don't run away.
You exercise patience. And that's one of the major differences between an atheist and a theist. The atheist rejects God the moment things get tough. Why didn't God give me what I wanted when I wanted and the symbol in
analogy that I give for an atheist is equivalent to a child was in a store with their parent and they're driving and they're rolling past the candy aisle, and the child says to mom, but mom buy me candy and mom says, I'm not gonna buy you candy. And the kid says, Mom, you hate me. You're not my mom anymore. I don't love you. And mom was like, okay, buddy. Why don't you calm down a little bit. I'm just settling. I still love you.
Saying that I'm not your mother doesn't change anything. While the believer on the other hand, no matter how difficult things get remains patient.
Things don't always work out. Sometimes, it's your calamities that break your ego away, and help you come back into touch with your own reality. calamities are powerful if you let them do what they're supposed to do.
tests in life could spiritually elevate you to a point that you wouldn't be able to reach on with your own worship. Even if you tried. I think of challenges in life kind of like a catalyst expedites the process, that chemical reactions are so much faster. If you're kind of growing like this gradually, a masiva comes in and just vertical growth, instant growth, the story in the Quran, of all the prophets, all the prophets, all the righteous people that are referenced in the Quran, they are not mentioned as biographical entries. Rather they are mentioned in the Quran as men and women who face difficulty in life and they didn't give up on Allah. They remained loyal, impatient, and
Allah subhanaw and whatnot. I love them so much that their stories were crystallized for eternity in the kingdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala every one of them and you want to use that with Ali salaam Zachary Ali Salam Ibrahim Ali Sana every single one of them the same story every single time.
No matter the Allah one when he was asked this question on any phone, that is it true that there is no such thing as stuck. Didi said, I have nothing to do with these people. And they have nothing to do with me until they believe in.
Even receiving Rahim Allahu Taala narrates one of the students of Abdullah binominal the Allah one that a person once offered him
a person offered him Joe Oddish got Oh ma Hua IV nominally Allah one had no idea what this Joe Oddish was. He said, What's Joe Oddish so he said, This is something that we eat. After we have a big heavy meal and we're full, you know, like, you've had four slices of Chicago style Deep Dish Giordano's pizza and you're like completely bloated and you can't turn left or right, you're maxed out. He said, When we eat a lot
and you're having tough digesting that food. We eat Jyotish to help with the digestion.
If you don't want to be alone, hola Juan said Masha we are to move to Aruba it ashore.
I haven't eaten to my full in four months.
And then he said, and it's not because well my DACA Allah Cornella who Why didn't while I kidney I hit to Omen Yes. But when Mr. Ratan way I do run a marathon. And it's not because I didn't have the ability to eat, but rather is because I made a commitment to a people who would eat one day, eat a meal, and then stay hungry for the next one. They didn't always eat. These were people that weren't to satisfy filling themselves. And that's the American problem. That's the Western problem, that we're just so greedy with our appetites. Just eat and eat and eat, and we're not thinking about it. We don't care about what it's doing to our bodies. You know, the most advanced nation, possibly when
it comes to science and technology and innovation. But the most obese as well were up there, man. And you look at the Muslim world and you look at the third world as well. They were actually doing much better before we started giving them all of our artificial food before we started sending them, you know, McDonald's and Twinkies and soda. Those people were doing quite decent. And then we started sending them all sorts of junk food and now people are just hooked on to that cheap meal. You go to the Middle East now I went to Saudi Arabia and like I was trying to have a healthy meal and the only thing I could find that was close to being healthy was fried chicken
not even a big ol fake like
everywhere you go.
It's just fried chicken and I'm like come on, give me some kind of buy a salad I did not see one salad store in the entire MCCA
there's sometimes like not even like a full salad. It's like this is salad This is salads like sliced carrots, sliced cucumbers and beets with chutney on the side.
If you're not this, you're like what in the world is going on? What am i What is this for the rabbit or something?
see that abdominal the Allahu, and this is a powerful narration, the son of it has some sort of in it that no matter the Allah one one day, he came outside and while he was walking, he saw that everyone had gathered. So he asked them what's going on? They said, I said the other 30 of the hobby sadness. There's a lion in the road. So everyone's you know, there's a wild cat there. People are being cautious. People are trying to wait it out, see what happens next.
So you know, I'm gonna be alone, one dismounted and he went to the lion, and literally held it by the ear for fall, aka Luna, who was a hunter who under 30. He then held the animal and pulled it aside, he held the line and pulled it aside.
People are shocked like what, what is this guy doing it does not have any fear.
And then he said I heard the Prophet of Allah saying, semiotic Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called lowland yes he will Lola Musa lamb low lamb Yah ha, Fibonacci Fibonacci, Adam, in Lulla, Lemieux solid ally healer, you know, that had the son of Adam not feared anyone other than Allah. No one would overcome the inside.
It's that we have started fearing others. That's why their fear has entered into our hearts. This applies to Jinn as well the Muslims are very terrified of jinn. There's nothing to be afraid of them. Well, I call the cuddle bunny Adam. Allah gave you honor. There's no need to be afraid of any any animal any creation. You have this like six foot dude who weighs like 200 pounds and he's terrified of a cockroach.
God created you superior have some dignity. You're jumping in the air like a young child by the passing of a small mouse. Not even the size of this cup.
You know what happened to the in sun?
misstatement of phenomena the law when it's quite profound, that Allah subhana wa Tada. He gave the human being honor over all that you don't fear anyone other than Allah subhana wa Tada.
You ever seen someone
fearless? Just approach a lion or a wild animal and control that? Have you guys ever seen that?
Yes, no, I've seen it. It's crazy. You know, these people. I was in Zambia in, like kind of southern part of Africa. And my teacher asked me to go there, you know, to teach Islam to some of the people there and spend time with the Muslims. So we were literally in
what they call the bush like we were in the jungle. And so we're driving in this car, this guy is driving me and he literally chopped the top part of his car off. So it's open. And as we're driving we're passing by. This is I saw this with my own eyes. We're driving past hyenas. We're driving past giraffes going past. So many rhinos is sitting on the side of the bank, passing by like bulls and buffaloes and all the animals. So then we're passing by one area. He said, this area is known for cheetahs and lions.
So we saw that we saw them there was a group of female lions by the side. And this dude's getting closer. I'm telling him, you know, it's my invite. Why don't you slow down a little bit. We don't need to go that close. My camera has a zooming feature.
We don't need to go any closer.
He's always say move this hop. You don't need to be afraid of anything. I'm here. I said, Aren't you afraid? He said no. I said what would you do if that lion from there pounced on us? Because there's nothing on top of us. There's no security, no safety. What would you do right now if that line right there. Five steps away jumps on us.
This man holds up his big light that he's holding in his hand because I hit it with this.
Not afraid at all man.
That didn't increase my confidence in him.
But I definitely saw what confidence was. Because not afraid. You put me up against that guy. I'll take them down. And it's not false confidence either. It's a state that these people are not afraid. You look at the like, you know, in Afghanistan, these people are not afraid of tanks. They're not afraid of jets. Tough. They're really tough people. They look at the enemy and they say you should be afraid of me. Not the other way around. The son of Adam did not do anyone other than Allah nothing else would overcome him
one person came to me no matter the hola one because abdominal the hola one avoided participating in any of the wars between any of the Sahaba you know any disputes or anything he said? I'm not
Gotta get involved in any of this. And it was beautiful that he did it. Because
politics are just an ongoing story, there's always going to be an up and down. You need some people in the community that kind of stay away from the politics and teach and educate people, not dividing the people. Because once you're a part of one party, when people from the other group see you, they won't study from you. Because why are you from that group? There's some assumption that this person is going to feed an agenda to me if no matter the hola Juan made it a policy that I am a teacher, everyone learns the Hadith from me, and I want to remain that so I'm not going to get involved in any of this. Right? He chose not to be a part of it. So a person once came to me no matter the law
one and he said to him,
you know, that hadith that we always hear that Islam is based on five pillars. You guys know that narration Booney al Islam Allah hums Islam is built on five pillars. We teach it to kids in Sunday School in the haunted house and interfaith, Islam is based on five pillars. Most of you may not know this, that narration is narrated by a phenomenal the Allah one.
And the reason why he narrated that hadith is this. A person came to him phenomenal, the Allah one trying to guilt trip him. He said that, why don't you go for jihad, everyone's going for jihad. Why don't you go for jihad. So at that point, you've nominated the Allah who won in response to him said Booney al Islam, Allah humps, Islam is built on five pillars, and Jihad is not one of those five pillars. That's how he quoted that narration to that we believe in God, Salah zakaah Some Hutch is jihad fighting in the battlefield obligatory it couldn't be in certain circumstances. Your city is getting ransacked. You can't sit at home with your with your cheese and crackers. You got to get up
and go find you got to defend the people. That's a time you know. But overall, in Islam, we don't have this concept that everyone's in barbaric mode. We're all just fighting and shooting and killing and blowing up each other kind of like what you know Hollywood wants people to believe. Like they're always showing Muslim as a crazy cuckoo guy. That's even no matter the Allah wants making it a point that Islam is a jihad is a tool that Muslims use if there is a need for it. If we get pushed, we will push back. If there is a need, we will stand up if there is a need if oppression becomes common, we will stand up to establish justice. Islam is not some pacifist religion, Some so called
Buddhist faith, that's not what it is. Islam believes in justice. And if there's oppression, the the Muslim ruler, if there is one at any given time in any given state can pass a ruling that Muslims get up and spread justice. But it's not one of the five pillars of Islam.
The five pillars of Islam can apply to everyone at all times Booney al Islam Allah humps and then he narrates these five pillars so that question or he then cited a verse to ignore the Allah one sort of Hydra verse number eight, that okay, I'll accept that one. But what about the ayah What in for a fatality minute we need to firstly Albina Hama for in
Africa to legitimately had that a few ala amarilla. He cited this verse. So if normal or the Allah one responded back to him, What about the I have a Quran? Omani minim with me then photos that would you hand them hiding them? That whoever kills another believer intentionally, will be in the fire of hell eternally. You're going to kill people. He's He's saying, I'm not going to fight. You can't shame me into fighting. I'm not going to go fight against another Muslim another moment.
So then that guy said, What about the Iraq War Khartoum? hatherleigh Tikona fitna, so the battle Bacala 193. So if you're hung on to the Allahu and said to him that you've misunderstood this verse, this verse is talking about the early days of Islam or Muslims weren't even allowed to practice their faith, they were tortured. So then Allah azza wa jal when we arrived in Madina, Munawwara gave us permission, to fight to defend ourselves to establish our own land and to worship Allah subhanaw taala freely. Now Islam has become abundant. Welcome to confit Anna. And there is no fitna anymore. This ayah does not apply. He's an officer. You can't shame him into, you know, partially stating
this and partially stating that he's a knowledgeable man who saw revelation come down upon are sort of lost that Allah is He lived with the Prophet of Allah Faqad of Allah Mara and the hula. You have people who when he realized that he couldn't convince him to OH MY GOD, ALLAH one. He said from our coloca fear of man, well Ali, the man was one of these trolls from you know, social media, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, so he said, So what's your opinion regarding of mine on the Alon one and only that the Allah one? So he said, with mono the Allah one, like the other companions forgiven by Allah you choose you people choose not to forgive him. If he did anything, you people are the ones that
hold grudges not me. I don't have a grudge against another companion. As for Allah, the Allah one, he was the cousin of the Prophet of Allah, the son in law, the Prophet of Allah, and his house was right here he pointed towards the area in front of him was right next to the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
That's what he meant with the Prophet of Allah. So what opinion do I have earlier the Allah who was Beloved to us just as he was beloved to
the prophets of Allah my name was him
now we go to the end of it no matter the Allahu one's life
no matter the Allah one, it passes from this world in the 73rd year after migration
73rd year after migration
there's a lot going on at this time politically there's a lot of things happening. Hi Jasmine Yousuf has just basically ransacked mcomber karma to bring down of the Levin's Aveda the Allah one who was the established Khalifa in Mecca. We covered over Levin's a bit of the Allah one story and actually his mother's story a smarter the Allahu Anhu earlier in our classes. So after I've Levin's Aveda the hola Juan was martyred
Hi Jasmine Yusuf the man who orchestrated the whole thing, the general behind the omega the army. He was delivering a sermon and he began to say very foul things against certain companions of the Prophet Allamani was
normal for the hola Juan stood up. He was an old man, senior person. Some historians say he was around 87 years old. In his mid to late 80s. He heard the man speaking foul about us hobbies, even Amara, the Allah who wants to and he said oh enemy of Allah stop it. You say bad things about the companions. You desecrated the honor of the Kaaba by bringing war here.
This was a land that people were not allowed to have weapons in and you brought weapons here. You brought an army here you fought a war in Makkah, who does it? Who does something like this?
How Jasmine used to have was a foul man. So he turned to ignore the Allah hawan and in front of everyone publicly, he said, This man is senile. He's lost his brains. He's no good.
her judgment is of course one of his people and instructed him to inflict a wound on ignore Amara, the Allah one with a poisoned weapon
for the Masada Nasser Ahmed al hijab Juba Musa that he for alcohol button smallmouth and weatherable Bihar region or even your Amara family the whole matter
that man came in he made a small cut on it no matter the Allah one which led to enrollment or the Allah wants health deteriorating significantly. When he was on his deathbed how Jasmine Yusuf came to visit him and he played innocent he said, Is there anything I can do for you point out who caught you and I will deal with him so if no I'm gonna the Allah one first didn't respond and when I just kept trying to make a scene you know I'm gonna the Allah one turned towards them and he said, You are the one who killed me.
said how could you say such a thing? So I've the love and OH MY GOD, ALLAH one then repeated that before your arrival. There was none of this in Macau. There were no weapons here. This was a safe town. This is a huddle my sanctuary. Whoever caught me did it because you allowed it to happen. You're the one who brought all these weapons into my karma karma. You're the one who bought the war here. You're the one who bought the fight here. And as normal the other one was on his deathbed. His Student narrates that the last thing that he stated regret over was
not being able to spend more time in this world worshipping Allah subhanaw taala he said man I wish I can live longer to worship Allah more to fast more to do more good deeds. And I also regret not standing up against the rebel group. When they stood up against the Khalifa we Allah subhanaw taala elevate the MACOM say that up to love and Amara the Allah one so many lessons to learn from him there are again there's so many there are so many stories and so many anecdotes so many things that we can learn from it you know, I'm gonna do everything had a place in time. One time you have no matter the Allah one was linked off of the Kaaba, a person came to him and said I would like to
marry your daughter
in the middle of his full off sleep no I'm gonna the Allahu Wan didn't even respond to him. He just kept walking.
That guy felt so shameful that man I wanted to marry that guy's daughter and I took my moment you know young people when they get excited sometimes they get a little nervous too so he's thinking man what's up no matter the Allah one think of me and he's so nervous and shock after his after his did is finished his time in Makkah he went to Medina this person and if no I'm gonna the Allah one was already in Medina when he met him phenomenal the Allah one if no matter the Allah want to call him. He said, weren't you the guy who wanted to marry my daughter? He said yes. So then everyone went on the alone one very compassionately softly says to him, buddy, there's a place in time for
everything. That's not the time
I've been placed for it. When we're doing the offer on the cob, are we supposed to be thinking about like marriage? Oh, you're worshipping Allah. You're supposed to think about your father.
And then he says Tim, okay, tell me about yourself. Are you still interested? He said yes. And we almost said I do have a daughter who is interested in marriage to he presented himself in the abdominal the Allah one then sought the opinion of his daughter, he called Two of his sons into the Nika right there.
There's a time and place for everything. So many lessons. From the wisdom and knowledge of phenomenal the Allahu Allah azza wa jal allow us to learn and follow their footsteps. Well said Allah, Allah, Allah says I'm Hamid, Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
