Smilla heme and hamdulillah
hamdulillah yokocho salmonella anybody in Levine Mustafa also Sanada so you did receive a hot m&m via
while early hilus Kia was happy about
we are studying the book of Chicago Fatah Buddhadharma along with Adam rasool and volume Assadi boo boo fatale fidelium. The teaching methodology of Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was said
this last week I was in Alabama
I went to visit an Islamic school and they had a heavy graduation.
While I was there, I met a young man, Mashallah.
He told me that he was in the middle of choosing a career. He's already been a teacher for maybe a few decades. And it was planning what to do next, if he should continue being a teacher or change his career.
So he came and told me that I listened to your
weekly Halaqaat the Carrollton measures regularly.
So while I was in the middle of deciding what to do next, I joined in on one of the classes. And at that point, we were discussing the importance of teaching.
So the statement that I made at that point was, be a teacher, be a teacher via teacher for in the mobile Earth.
because the prophets of the Lord is Salam says, I was sent as a teacher.
He said, When I heard that you I made need to be a teacher for the rest of my life.
So when I went to Alabama, he was there teaching Quran and teaching Islamic Studies.
It brought so much joy and happiness. Because when we teach these classes, when we cover these texts, the truth is that the hope is that Allah subhanahu Matata inspires someone's heart, to do the good that we are incapable of doing ourselves.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
what are the homily 15 Elam and who have to whom you know, that sometimes you can they the knowledge to someone who understands it better?
That they actually implement it, and they bring it into their life? Oh, I mean, that's sometimes the one who had the knowledge is conveyed to is able to protect it in a more meaningful way.
I thought about this.
Why is it that we are studying this subject? This is something we covered at the beginning of the year, but I wanted to bring it up again,
it seems to someone that may see this topic that this is some sort of very specialized class on education. And without doubt it is because we're studying the educational methodology of Rasulullah sallallahu ala Hansen.
But then it also hit me that the reason why many people may find this as an irrelevant subject to themself is because when we think of teacher, we're thinking of someone standing in front of a chalkboard. We're envisioning someone standing at the front of an auditorium, someone that's in a classroom.
But when you study the moments where a sort of loss that Allahu Allah who was sitting was teaching the Companions, it wasn't in front of a blackboard, or it wasn't in front of a group of students that were seated in chairs or an auditorium.
Teaching was something that happened as second nature. It was a part of hudl sort of loss that Allamani was sitting was, there were no dull moments with the Prophet Allah who set out to set up that wherever he went, he was a teacher. So when you're with your spouse, with your children at work, you're sitting in a cab, waiting at the airport sitting in a plane, there are opportunities there at every moment, to impart knowledge.
Obviously, you have to ensure the moment is right, as we've covered earlier on.
When you look at it from this perspective, you understand that learning the subject and understanding and taking this deep dive into what kind of teacher educator Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was,
it instantly becomes relevant to every person.
And by studying this text, and by reading these Duat, you are changing who you are, you're transforming yourself.
From the mindset of, I'm not worthy of being a teacher, I can never be a teacher, I'm not qualified to be a teacher, to making yourself worthy of it. And if we can make this change occur, our society will be full of positive influence.
Everyone will be teaching in some form or another. We already are, but now we'll know how to do it. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us that
and allow us to live in an environment where education flourishes, where knowledge is wide and spread, and people know what they're doing.
So today, we're going to start with Chapter number 20.
dalim who said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam bisutti Well if karate Allah Mahadeva mmm, go ahead
to learn how to live upon long
teaching by remaining silent over what occurs in one's presence. This is what
One of the categories of the pseudonym, the scholars of jurisprudence, and the scholars of Hadith refer to this as
tacit approval. If any Muslim said or did something in the presence of those who have also a lot he was and he did not explicitly disapprove of it, but instead remain silent or was openly pleased with it that this was an indication of muscle muscle
academic matters by holding on to how you can disregard
we're going to read how do you remember 96
I wouldn't I wouldn't areas on the authority of unknown law school the low on who said I had a wet dream on a cold night while we were in the battle that
I feared that if if I were to take a bath, I would die because of the severe pool. So I made the MO and led my companions where the federal solo they then related this incident was also the muscle of on it was he set the alarm? You let your companions and Salah while you were in a state of major impurity. So I informed him of what prevented me from taking that in this vehicle. And I said to him, I heard a lot palletizing Milan, not kill yourselves Allah's comment that was certainly merciful towards you. It was all of us allies and the left and the Nazi Yeah, so but he got off sort of last Allamani was salam what me up when shaken when he presented this argument that Allah
subhanho wa Taala says what not to do and full circle in Allah can become Rahima that do not kill yourselves for Allah is merciful to you.
Therefore I deduce that taking a shower would be causing death to myself. He was in a cold place taking a shower was dangerous for him. So he said O Messenger of Allah, I deduce the ruling from this. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his teaching moment there was a smile accompanied with silence.
proud of him that you did it, right. This is what we call Takahiro NaVi Allah has salatu salam, go ahead.
Chapter number 21 utilization of opportunity moments in the house whoo hoo, and Manasa Elmo, NASA but arida for Tallinn, in the House who a is Tina? How Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam utilized appropriate moments to teach something was happening, everyone was there. So an example of this would be that a child is born. So if you have the opportunity, you say something in that regard, the birth of a child, someone is conducting an ICA, there is an audience there, you speak two words about the place and mom of Nikka in Islam, you're going for a hike, you're with some folks, you talk about the creation of Allah subhanho wa taala, you're shopping, and you see some
rice, and maybe you reflect over how Allah subhanho wa Taala through his infinite mercy has given us access to such a beautiful source of nourishment, and the journey that this rice go through fruit.
See, in front of
you're at a bear. And you reflect over death of Donna the weakness of the insaan and how Allah subhanaw taala exploits the sins of His servant through their difficulties. You're playing games with someone you talk about something from there, that you're able to connect things to what's relevant at that moment. What's important is that when you're discussing things that are relevant, don't force it, because then it becomes cheesy.
You have to feel the vibe in that moment, that are these people ready for a reflection? Will they be able to appreciate what I'm going to say? And then connect it. The beautiful thing then is that they will never see that thing the same way again.
They'll never see a dog the same way again. They'll never see a bird the same way again. If you help them connect when they see a tree from now on. It'll be a new experience. Rasulullah sallallahu Alia was sending money entered into the market he educated
and regarding commercial law, specifically focusing on deception that do not cheat one another. So not every day when the Companions come to the market. They remember that date. That was what Ali said after Saddam came to the market and he corrected us here that he saw Saddam the Halacha who feasibility to provide you the Bella LAN and then maybe sort of La Holly was salam educated them accordingly. Yes, go ahead.
Also, the loss of Allah do something with often utilize the property opportunities to teach. In this way he combined the opportunity with the knowledge which he wished to spread and propagate, is served as a clear set of explanations. It was best understood and easily grasped by those who listened to the message.
wasn't married on the authority agenda or the low animal said this will last
through the marketplace, entering it via the outskirts but you know,
people were on people were on either side of them. You passed by a young there's a group of people murdered up is Sookie Lachlan in Bali Island from the outskirts of Medina when Natsu kind of fatigue he kind of fatigue he means be journey baking, they were on both sides of him for Mara the Jedi in May eating a sucker. So in a visit Allahu alayhi wa sallam passed by an animal that was dead and it had some deformity to it. A second means small ears. There was a deformity to it.
But an hour who for Asada, we only hear from a call or you can be a hippo and
so there was an animal there may be the flesh was one little it was deformed. The Prophet of allah sallallahu sallam said who would like this animal who would like to purchase this animal for one day? Bear in mind it's dead and it's rotting. And I'll be shaking. They said we don't want that animal man that scenario will be here what would we do with a dead animal like this? Or the Laguna under hula comb
maybe saw some said would you like this animal in return of nothing? So when he said buena hula come the other way Bara the hidden text there is or the assumed text is How about in return have nothing you refuse the offer for one day at home? But what if I give it to you for free? Oh no. They said hola Hello Can hi in Canada the SOCO Ivan fee then a sucker okay fella who are made they said O Messenger of Allah if he was alive, that animal wouldn't have much value because of its deformity. Now that it's dead, it has no value at all. For color, follow Allah He left dunya one one Allah him in Hidalgo, because of the loss of Allah, Allah Islam then said, just as you have no value for this
deformed, dead carcass, Allah subhanho wa Taala has no value for the dunya. In in reality have one that you may think you dislike this, Allah has even less of a concern or care for this dunya than you have for this animal.
Conducting an observation something that was there to helping the Muslims understand, what is value what the value of the dunya is in the sight of Allah azza wa jal? Yes, go ahead.
This is one of the best ways by the way to teach science
as a subject, it obviously needs to be studied in the classroom because of its intricacies and because it's a complicated subject that needs to be learned lesson by lesson. But it true experience of science or how a person understands it internalizes it, is by interacting with the creation of Allah subhanahu wa Tada and seeing what you know, come into existence, where you tell the student, you know, we talked about photosynthesis, this is what's happening. Something right here. Every time you drive past this tree, there are so many reactions that are occurring in every leaf and every tree and every strand of grass, all the light data by the permission of Allah subhanaw taala.
This is the Muslim approach to education.
This is the Muslim approach to education that for us, it's embedded in the existence of Allah. Now that is not in spite of Allah.
You know, people assume that science proves God doesn't exist. How?
It doesn't prove that at all. Rather, it shows that Allah subhanahu wa Tada sunnah is to adopt ASVAB the way Allah subhanaw taala allows us rule to exist is through means and the means studying them open up a chapter of depth to the one observing that this is how Allah subhanho wa Taala has allowed this to occur, your knowledge that things are not never impacted. The means that Allah subhanaw taala adopted, you're just late to the party. You're figuring it out. Now when these processes existed long before you even had an
Allah subhanaw taala allowed the world to continue in this manner. Shere Khan Hindle Remo, Allahu Allah, Chef Muhammad Hassan Deobandi
towards the end of his life. He was heavily involved in the
revolt against the British colonial powers.
He was on his way back to India. He had gone from high on his way back.
He wasn't where the British had kept their captives. He was there for a period later on after he passed away one of the students Schiff was saying with Madani Allahu Ali, he spoke when he heard that his shift passed away.
I believe you passed away in 1921 or 1922. Something like this. Yeah. 100 on Blondie passed away. So at that time was the chef Jose Ahmed Madani Rama Allahu taala. When he heard that a chef passed away, he spoke. And he said to the people, that when chef went to Malta, I was there with him. And he prevented us and told us not to tell anyone about what happened while we were in prison. But now that he's passed away, I'll tell you, that the soldiers would lash him and beat him relentlessly telling him to sign a fatwa that it was haram to revolt against the British. And he refused. He said, I'll never do it and they beat him and beat him and beat him.
High. After a shuffle hindered him, Allah Tala was released, he was given the title shuffled him, because of his involvement at a political level, to gather the Muslims together to deal with the colonial British presence. This is why he was given that title images or shoot us at him is the title we'd like to offer to you. He was very old at this point in his life.
after he came back, Jamia Millia, the famous university in Allegan was about to have its inauguration. It's about to come into existence, prominent university. So the Muslim shooter of the university began to discuss who they would invite as their keynote. This was a big deal, a Muslim University in India, the first of its kind.
So the military shoot I said, the person appropriate for this is Gerald Henry McDonough. He was very old at the time, he was
sick most of the time.
He told me he should get on with the Swanee to pin down the lecture. And he also read it to the congregation.
So in that lecture, shuffling that Allah Tala mentioned a few very valuable points. One of the things that he mentioned, he said, There is no way for us to get out of this hot mess that we're in this bondage that the these people have us in, there's no way for us to get out of this. Until we take control of our own education.
If we don't have our own institutions, if we keep relying on their institutions, we keep relying on their culture. If we keep relying on their clothes, and their clothing on their language, and we let go of everything that belongs to us, there's no way for us to get out of this. We are selling our generations away.
So shuffling into the home to la era emphasized again and again with very clear words, we will have to create our own institutions of education, where we teach what we believe to be true, and not that Muslims have a separate set of facts. But the facts that we all know to be true, we will present them in an Islamic framework, we will present them in an Islamic framework. By doing this, we now have some control on what happens to the generations that come ahead. May Allah subhanahu wa taala allow us to also play such a positive role in our educational system.
Yes, go ahead.
ordinariates on the authority objeto nontheless and virtually all the Alon who said one night we were sitting in the company of those women lost.
When he looked at the full moon and said on the Day of Resurrection, you will look at your Sustainer just as we were looking at this moment, you will not crawl each other in trying to look at if you are able not to be overcome by the salon before sunrise and before sunset, you should offer it he never recited the verse glorify the praises of your Sustainer before sunrise and before sunset.
Rasul Allah is on the line instead of utilizing the opportunity of the Sahaba the alum are looking at the full moon by explaining to them that seeing a lot out of the Hereafter with such clarity and ease will be possible for the believers.
teaching through humor.
subtle humor provides amusement and diversion to a person. It lightens the burden of fatigue, difficulties and hardships are inevitable in life. But through humor the burden of these is Lesson A person can learn from a smiling person and more than what he can learn from the sternum from the present. Continuous seriousness is burdensome on the mind and heavy on the thoughts. Occasional human refreshes. And revitalizes I personally
like humor is a very sweet teaching aid. And, and the Jovenel remark helps in guiding the enlightening a student. One can less gauge how intelligent This is why is dignified, affectionate and merciful teacher was so alive it
wasn't allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to joke and just with his son
If you're low on on certifications, however, he spoke nothing but the truth. He taught many things through joking and humor.
I learned who labour or Hamilton was set also the loss of a loved one he was used to joke because the people were commanded to emulate him and follow in his footsteps. Had he abandoned a cheerful countenance and a pleasant expression in such seriousness and assertiveness that people would have an optimism
just by being against their nature and temperament. He joked with them so that they could do the same, but he spoke nothing about the truth. So this was also the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu that our Ummah is one that smiles and is happy he was welcoming in the mechanical sort of muscles and Yamazaki and then as maroon abita. SCB well after that if you already follow Tharaka Calacatta well Masha will let me sell a goose I will go to the other nurse and for someone with Alika Alhama female Khalifa Tila z because V is at the middle of my shop today. Well Anna farmers AHA Liam's sourcing Allah, Allah, Allah said, he was jocular, and he was happy and joyous. So people would
know, this is how you're supposed to be. This is how you should be as a teacher, lighthearted, Jolly, when needed to be serious, be serious. Your jokes should not be at the cost of another person. They should not degrade your value in the eyes of the student. The students shouldn't see you losing your dignity because of the type of jokes you're using. In that moment, just to engage them. You are not an entertainer, you are an educator. And using jokes should be to achieve your goal in education, not summing up the quality of what you're saying, or the seriousness of what you're saying. Because you're referencing something that diminishes that seriousness. You have to
choose very carefully what you're saying and how you're saying it for him as a hot leanza who kind of like Hatha
called an Imam and now we pick it up with God and MISA who and when he and who will lead if he for us and we'll use our Murali for inner who use the temple. We just go to undergrad Allahu Allah, we'll figure it out for him Matt Dean, and I'm gonna wait I'm Allah. Allah says that the type of
jest that is disliked in the deen, who are Luffy fraud, that which is excessive. When you doubt well, more or less that a person is always joking nonstop is joke after joke after joke thing, the whole unit because it leads to everyone just laughing all the time. Well, that's what I'll be. And it hardens the heart. We actually go to La Junta Allah and it distracts the person from the remnants of Allah. What fricative Multimatic deen and pondering reflecting over the serious and important matters of the dean, where all of you cathedra mineral authority that are useful
and many times it brings a person back to harming other people
either, while eautiful AHA then it causes animosity in the hearts of friends and students and teachers that it's easy to go too far. You might say something that hurts someone while you're spiritually Mahabharata, well matar and excessive joking. can also cause the student to lose respect. You split on Maha muhabba is a haven like an all that a student should have with their teacher. They lose that one we'll call it and respect the MMR selima, Manhattan more for well mobile lady Ghana. Rasulullah sallallahu Islamia Allahu fina didn't matter while Lima Slaton Matata even Matata YiHi nafcillin mohatta We will earn a city ohada haha man Allah who caught on but who assumed
that when was the hot button either Academy how the CIFA thought I mean hada Fein know whom yada yada yada he will be lied to you. So then in the law he says as for
a joke or
are laughing and joking with people that is pure of what was mentioned earlier excessiveness and so on
then it is permissible for holding MOBA it is permissible. I love you can also love that prophets of Allah Allah was cinema Doofy nah didn't mean that a while sometimes at times are sort of last analyze him. Why would he do this Lima Selahattin due to a
due to a what?
A greater good. There was something behind it. There was a goal and objective that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was trying to accomplish. What are the EB nevsun mohatta be honest at the end to make the person that he was speaking to feel a little comfortable? That was the purpose behind it. A small joke to make that person feel happy. Well, how that lamina minha PATA PATA on and this is actually not discouraged at all. Yes, go ahead.
Without even listening to me and imagine you're in on the authority of innocent the moment with your loved one was, was all muscles
Somebody used to visit us. I have a small brother who was called up.
He had a burger she would play with and it died. When most of the muscles came to visit us, he noticed that my brother was sad. So we asked him, so he asked, what has happened to him? The people of the House said His birthday was through the loss of a loved one. He said to him, What made him what has happened to the lake.
That's the end of the statement. Now, when you read that statement in translation, it loses all of its
all of its
excitement, I would say. And it's joy. This is a great example of how things are lost in translation.
The depth of a statement is lost. But if you look at the statement, yeah, about a made MacFarlane late, Howard sort of loss of Allahu Allah, he was seldom addressed and sort and dealt with the issue.
It's beautiful, because he posed the question to this young man who was sad. And when a person sat over something specifically, if they're young, you want to get them to talk about it.
So he dealt with the situation by asking the question probing him, why don't you go and tell us what happened?
Imagine the joy for this child, how happy he must have been that the greatest of all mankind is sitting next to him. And he gets to spill his heart out and tell them how sad he is because his birdie passed away. Yeah, I made my father.
And that also the loss of Allahu alayhi wa salam uses this rhyming Yeah, about omae My father knew hate because kids love rhyming, right? You'd run their name a little, it brings a smile to their face, go to a young kid and write their name. Right?
Radhiya is crazy. Yeah. She'll start laughing. It's so dumb. But she'll laugh because kids love the rhyme. Yeah, about Omega McFarland navaid.
And then we also see the the author Ramallah data, he lays out he actually has listed for us I think it's 11 or 12 points that can be deduced from reading this narration, some provide, they're actually actually rissalah dedicated a small little booklet dedicated, just to this, the WIA and the points that can be deduced from the statement of Rasulullah saw a lot of them will read them in the words of author Go ahead.
The following lessons are derived from
a lyric and specifically visited some of his followers. He can intermingle with some of his followers and not others. A learn person may convey his knowledge to one who will benefit from
the permissibility of joking is established. Moreover, it is permissible to joke with a child who has not yet reached the age of understanding is permissible to address someone who is not yet a father by the title of
the Father. Yeah, he referred to him as a man and made me as a father of a mate. And obviously, he's a child. He doesn't have a heater. He's a child himself. He doesn't have a kid. But here we learn.
The permission of Jeconiah
of giving quinean medulla mula, who wanted one that does not have a child, yes.
It is permissible for a child to play with words provided no harm is caused to them. Yeah, that's the main thing in Islam, that people ask this question that is permissible to have pets. It of course it is. As long as that it doesn't affect your Deen in any way. If the pet brings in the Jessa into your home impurity into your home and becomes a barrier for worshipping Allah azza wa jal didn't know. Similarly, if the pet can cause harm to you, then no, that's not, that's not a safe thing to do. Similarly, you don't harm that animal. They say regarding Imam outage, the famous scholar that he had a bird and he, he was playing with his bird. So he tied a rope to one of the
legs of the burden as the bird would fly, he would pull it down, the bird is flying and pull it down. So his mama said, stop this, you're going to hurt the bird. So he continued doing it and he pulled the rope too hard and broke the leg of the bird. So his mother said May Allah do to you what you did to this bird, he became a mammal outage, the one is limited.
is permissible for those who are possibly children to allow them to have such as is permissible to spend money on permissible items with which a child may induce himself Yeah, buying toys buying things of your hobby. It's a choice for you to buy these things. It can also be deduced from the scenario if yes, it is permissible to keep birds in cages and other similar enclosures. Yes, once you deal with people according to the level of their intellect and understanding,
it is permissible to address a person by his immune diminutive name if he is not affected way. In this case, the child was addressed as a woman
If it's like in English, and Arabic and others,
there's leaders like you, you minimize the, the the verb form to represents you actually add a letter and the verb form to, to portray a smaller version of what you're talking about. So, for example, you would say Junaid or you would say for saying
what's another one who say small lion or saying small beauty that also do this specifically when talking to kids as a gesture of affection. So instead of calling someone just Hasson, which was a name as well, you would then refer to a child as Hussein that's the scale for Island is the scale you put you put our work and noun on that and it gets to sleep. Yes.
It is permissible to ask about something despite having knowledge of it you provided that in those nine telemonitoring in this case, also the loss of the law it was at last what has happened to the lady despite knowing that it had died

He lived his life teaching Hadith.
He lived his life teaching Hadith. People will travel to Morocco. I know. And they would say, when we were in England, my friends would say to me that oh, we're going to Morocco because it's not too far away. Why are you going to get some of the Southern Hadith from Chef because

was free. Medina mecanica enlighten us about we must be surprised by that, that there were scholars who actually deduced upwards of 405 lessons from this one narration Yes, Continue
emphasizing by taking you know, also the loss of a lot of use often courtesy speech by taking an oath in the name of above data in order to draw attention to the importance of what he was about to say or to strengthen emphasis by
a person takes an oath to what sort of laws and
yet maybe sort of law who it was Saddam continued to at times take oath. Why that key then, therefore, he says that key to Tallinn bill so that he would emphasize it to make it clear that what is being said right now, it is very serious.
He narrates the WIA uploaded onto the Allah one on him so lots of love it
cinema Lydian fcbd letter the whole agenda the hat that took me a while to mean what? Ha boo, our Zulu kumara shaitan ultimo moto hubub Doom, all?
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, He took an oath Well, Levine fcbd hereby the one in whose hand my soul lies, law that
you will not enter into paradise until you believe. And you will not believe until you love one another. The Habu is masala ninja and even until you love one another, should I not tell you what will cause love to exist among you? After Saddam have been spread the greeting of Suriname among yourselves that when you see someone you say Saddam to them? Yes, go ahead
the number 24 Sorry, one moment. I just have to emphasize this again, we're talking about emphasis and that sort of loss of a lot it's um, took an oath.
When conveying this message doesn't it sound like something simple?
The message seems to be very fundamental say salam to one another. Isn't that something we're taught from Young from a young age that when you meet someone you greet them? Yet Rasulullah Salallahu Salam is taking an oath and emphasizing this because these statements as salaam aleykum, if set properly with love has the power to unite an entire ummah.
The issue is that we don't say it. And those of us who say it,
do so with a straight face without any love. Such a simple thing if you're wondering, What can I do to unite the Ummah you don't need to go on a on some protests do that later inshallah. You don't need to give some big lecture or write something on social media, do all that later, Inshallah, first start by saying salaam to the people that you meet. I'm amazed till today, when I see people in our own congregations and in communities that we've been to that we've been a part of that people still don't say salaam to one another.
They're putting shoes on mannequins that I'm seeing here.
They're putting their shoes on barely two feet away from one another, but they still once they set up.
How are the hearts ever going to be united? How will the next generation ever change if what they've seen in their parents is selective breeding, and selective affection and love, it can't change. It changes when the people that you grew up with are
are universal and their affection. They don't discriminate at all. When I grew up in Kentucky, my parents had a motel that one of the fancy ones, one of the sticky ones.
We had a motel the humble business that we had as a family. It was off about off the highway.
I'm not sure how familiar you guys are with the motel world, but you have like, you know, like the hotels invite like a type of person. The hotels do like you know, people at the Hilton and the Sheraton. It's a type of person that goes there. Obviously, I'm generalizing here. But the motel world is a different type of person. It's a different segment of the community, people who can actually afford that, you know, $20.20 or $30 a night.

compared to I don't know, what's a fancy breakfast place? Cracker Barrel?
Oh, what's the fancy breakfast place? All these fancy breakfast places? Are they all they're all their names are all puns. That's why I don't like them.
Excellence, giant people.
it was one of the most powerful experiences of my life growing up in a motel online, Harvard experience. Everyone came all walks of life.
And seeing my parents interact with them as a child, seeing them respect the humanity of the person who literally at that moment had nothing in his ownership other than what was in his pocket.
That guy, not just one of them everyday 10 of those people.
Seeing my mother Rahim Allah cooking food for these people, she would ask them in her very firm voice, did you eat anything?
And that guy would say no, she would say okay, come back in half an hour and she would make some dogs out for them.
And she would make food for them.
My father had said to the sheriff, because there was a prison nearby.
With that, if any of the inmates that are released have nowhere to go, they can stay with us for three days for free.
It was, it was a profound experience just seeing that being with them. Then my father telling us go clean their sheets, go empty their garbage, go look after them. Take care of them. know Doug will take us sometimes to Walmart. Going with random Randy, who could pop his eye out. True story.
Yeah, one of those glass fixtures. You guys ever seen those glass fixtures?
Every single minute. Randy's to pop his eye out.
There was a guy who lived in our hotel motel.
He stayed at our motel. Are you ready for this? I mean, for 20 years. There was one guy. He stayed at a motel for.
It gets better. He stayed at a motel for 20 years. We had never gotten his room. He was very private, which, which is his right obviously.
Guess what his name was?
If they noticed,
he wasn't listening.
You ready? This? I didn't. It didn't mean anything to me when I was young. But when I grew older, and I became familiar with culture, I tripped. I had a full other what happened for 20 years. His name was John Smith.
You can understand the reference, right? Like that's an ambiguous name. That's not a real name.
This guy lived for 20 years. And his name was John Smith.
My brother and I joke sometimes that he must have been some like, you know, area 51 guy who was hiding or something.
Kinda Luckily, the point that I was making is that it was a powerful experience to seeing people from different walks of life and being with them. truly humbling.
Not having any any discrimination in love. Zero discrimination. I mean, some of the guys would come and they would refer to my dad with like foul words. in jest, though. I mean, imagine being a young kid. And you see some guy walk in and using like, the N word, the F word while talking to your
And my father said to me, this is how they express their love.
Right? These these people, they're not being found. They're expressing their love like this. We will you know, try it anyway.
Rasul Allah Allahu Allah alayhi wa sallam taught us to be to give salam without any discrimination, while at the end of CVAD, that whole agenda to have that, you know, I mean, is that overkill? Someone can argue that so much, you won't enter into paradise until you believe you won't believe until you love the way you love. As I said, I'm one of them.
That sounds like a lot. It's because it is that important. It's that important that for the hearts of the students on a campus to come together. They can't just play basketball together won't do it.
They can't just eat together that won't do it either. Before they eat before they play basketball before they do game night, they will need to learn the fundamentals of seeing somebody come to one another in a meaningful way. If they can do that, now bring them together in basketball, you'll see their joint your their hearts will connect. Now bring them together for a thought at the masjid bring this about together for game night. Things will change. Bring these classes teach these students everyday that walk into class, for those of you that are teachers and educators at Islamic schools or public schools that greet one another respectfully first. If you can do that, now we
stand a chance of becoming a team it can become one, these team building activities will work. But if we can't do this fundamental thing of saying salam to one another
all these activities are futile. They're not going to yield what we're looking for them to you. Well at the end of CBD, now that the whole agenda data took me a while I don't mean ohata The Hubble our lucuma Allah Shane, Ada, Ada, ultimo, Hubbardton, all of salaam Avena calm that you will spend some time with one another.
Well, close your I'll share one story. My teacher and mentor
shift her use of Ramallah with data.
One day I was driving him and I dropped him off home.
He was old white beard.
And after I dropped him off, I drove a little ahead. And I don't know in my mind, I thought let me see how he enters the home. Maybe there's a learning moment here. He was a shuffling. I was a young student. So I pulled up a little ahead and I was watching in my car, roll the window and I was just watching
And what I saw was something so special May Allah give us the field? Me first and foremost because I was wanting slide to diamond on this. Then when he entered into the home, this is what he did. He opened the door. He opened his arms and stood by the door and said out loud in a very joyful way. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. his grandkids came, hugged him, he then walked into the house.
And I thought to myself, This is how muhabba comes into our family.
When we enter into our homes, we say salaam to so
Mr. Cochran I like
anger as if you just had some pepper or something and you're like, constipated
that's not going to increase marhaba
isn't that's not going to increase my habla
humba will come when people see the joy
that you have when you see them.
That's from hubba welcome.
They see you smiling and not just one day every day.
Every day when you see Mama is even on your answer her call for those of you that whose parents are far away I'm telling you when you say Saddam to your parents over the phone, smile you're saying Saddam they'll feel your smile.
Just smile. It's not economic. So Mama, how are you just that they won't be able to see it but they'll feel it. That person sits down to me.
Your parent may say what's wrong?
Abnormal. Something's off here.
This is the way after Saddam Avena. Spread Saddam among one another
sort of Lhasa salAllahu alayhi wa sallam his teachings
were so simple
and easily applicable.
You don't find anywhere in the deen that are sort of lasted a long while he was Saddam gave solutions to communal
societal issues that could only be implemented by politicians
that the average person feels
last week robbed of any power or ability, because the solutions to society only lie in the hands of a select few.
You guys watch these late night shows where they're criticizing different policies at the end of every one of them. John Oliver, you watch it at the end of every one of them. His solutions are governmental.
It's advocating to the government. There's never a solution that people actually control in their own hands.
Sort of Lhasa Allah Juana was taught us His teachings were so easy that everyone can be a part of the solution. Everyone could be. You want to be a part of the solution come up just said I'm available. Start tomorrow, start today. And very soon you'll realize the power of that Salaam and what it can do. What are the in fcbd the whole data the whole agenda?
Well, let me know Hatha Habu our other leukomalacia in EDA file to move to Hubbardton all of us Salam O
Allah subhanaw taala granted Sofia well sal Allahu Allah Allah Allah, Mohammed Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah?
