Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
We welcome you all to another session. But even a lot from today, we will be starting in the second third of the plan, and that is the 11th Jews.
Even in law today, we will touch on three stories. The first is a continuation of the Battle of tabuk way three of the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu who are good people who are known to be pious people they had missed out on this battle.
They refuse to lie to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rather be remained truthful, even though we will discuss their story today.
Michael Wiley comma Salam Alaikum
How are you? Sure.
hamdulillah all well, how are you? I hope you're well. 111 from the lamb well, and we hope all of us viewers are well us as well. Allow we hope they are all well enjoying the month of Ramadan and ready for the second third, I guess. inshallah? Yeah. Yeah, some panelists just passing so quickly. So really 10 days?
Almost Yes. With on the 11th. Just so we close to 10 days. 10 days? Yeah. So
when we spoke about yesterday's juice, or in yesterday's juice we met we mentioned that Allah Subhana. Allah, He spoke about some of the battles. The last one he speaks about is the Battle of the book. The book occurred at a time where it was very hot, people who missed out or who didn't go out to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. were mainly those who are either excused or they were hypocrites through and through from amongst these people who missed out, however, with three Sahaba, who are known as good Muslims, and when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came back to Medina, and he asked about these people. Everybody who had missed out came to give their excuses
people lied, people said, you know, they gave all sorts of excuses. However, these three, they refused to lie. They refuse to make any excuse. Basically, it was a shape and laziness. They didn't end up going. So we find the last panel what Allah speaks about their story. After the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came back and these people had come they didn't have a real excuse. They were boycotted by society. People weren't supposed to talk to them interact with them, and this carried on for a while until revelation came. Allah subhanho wa Taala then says what Allah, Allah levena fumiko In fact, before that, he says, not a terrible love Island. Well, Mahajan, I will
answer. Basically, Allah has forgiven and accepted the Toba and is still far off than a B and the mohajir Oh, and I'm sorry, he didn't mention these three, the three who refused to tell a lie, while a fellow set in Medina, for those three who remained who remained behind attack in our pocket Allah He will be my rifle but the whole earth around it all the people they had boycotted them, everything seems so narrow outwardly, and inwardly also, Baba, totally him and fusuma and inwardly they knew what they felt that sense of narrowness. One No, and they knew most definitely, Allah manager Amina la de la la, you know, there's no escape from Allah, the only one who can save at this time of
difficulty is Allah.
Yes, kind of love. Well, what I found amazing in that is that Allah subhanho wa Taala says that they, they spoke the truth or the prophet SAW Selim, we know from the narrations that these people went. And there's a very detailed narration in which cabin Eman Malik says that he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and as he was going, he thought to himself, maybe I can say this, maybe I can say that. And then he realized to himself that I cannot say anything except the truth. So he went to the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he said that which was the truth, and ultimately, this led to his, you know, being marginalized in society where people didn't
talk to him. People, you know, kept him one side, they boycotted him, basically. And it was said that he was even told to keep away from his wife at some point. But he stuck to the truth. He didn't change the story. They were people after he had told the truth that nearly convinced him to go back and lie once again to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But he stuck to the truth. And ultimately verses of the Quran were revealed regarding the Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the other two who were left behind, so, when we speak the truth and we say that which is correct, in ultimately, Allah subhanho wa Taala he will
grant us the, you know, the freedom from that situation or that difficulty that problem. Sometimes you think that maybe if I just tell a lie here, I'll get out of it, I'll be able to escape from this situation. But when you utter the truth when you say the truth, then it's possible that Allah subhanho wa Taala will test you with different difficulties and circumstances. But after you have passed the test, then there'll be so much goodness that will come into your life. Imagine till today we mentioning the these sahabas names as hubs names. Why? Because they told the truth and they stuck to the truth. Had they spoken a lie, they would have been forgotten like the rest of the people who
had lied at the time to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Somebody is asking could you name the Sahaba please the Sahaba garbage nomadic masala Norma beer, and Helen Mia. And somebody told us before if you want to remember it, remember maccha mean? Or marrara ggaf vocab and that hafele hiline so inshallah, that way you can remember these Sahaba or these companions names for me what stood out a few things. When a legend Oh ALLAH says, Allah him and fusuma know, Allah manager, Amina La la la. You know, after this narrowness, this difficulty this hardship they knew of one that can mean a fault, or in a lot of places in the forum. One means the most definitely new here it means they most definitely knew that the only escape now is if Allah
grants us this freedom, a lot of times of your difficulty and hardship, if it's bringing you closer to Allah, if you starting to do goodness you find you are attached to Allah. That is a good sign. And believe me let you carry on with this. And whatever you've been afflicted with, it will come to pass leaving in law. Another interesting point mentioned in the same narrations along the ration garbage nomadic or the Allahu anhu speaks about his stillbirth. And he says when glad tidings came to him. He then you know, he headed out to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and a lot of people are giving glad tidings when he reached the place where the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam was I'm sure it was the masjid. He then says, one person from the Mahajan stood up came running to him. And you know, he shook his hand and embraced him and congratulated him for his Toba and that his stoma had been accepted and this was all hat ignore, obey the law, then mentions in the Hadith, and this instance gobble or this, you know, this, what what had occurred here, karma nomadic always remembered it, he always remembered this motif or what had occurred with Allah. Imagine, you come into a place and one person comes out, and he comes to you and embraces you and he makes like, you know, you are the most important person in that in that moment, that is your moment. Look at how
this Sahabi hadn't obeyed the law was able to leave that mark leave me left in the heart of garbage nomadic hands in my head, it still says and he used to hold it, he used to cherish that moment. And he used to have a special place for this sahadi.
So panela he, the way we treat others is how they remember us not sometimes the way what we've done for them, but the way we treat them, you know, people tend to forget that you help him out or you did something for him. But when you treat someone well, then that person will always remember you know, that day he did x y and z he stood up he hugged me greeted me he you know, he showed me so much love, they will remember these things, because us human beings are emotional beings. So ultimately, the way we are treated is what we remember. And that's why I find it so interesting. We kind of were to Alice's one necessity that fella tanha and as for the one who is begging is asking,
don't give him a bad word. Don't chase him away. rather give him a good word. Leave him with a good word. You know, in the Hadith Rasulullah saw Selim says that even a good word is a sadaqa. So if you have nothing to offer materially, they say something good to them, make them laugh, make them smile, joke around with them, and at least you've left them in a better mood.
is acknowledging people and with the correct intention, obviously, another point he mentions in this Heidi, is that he told a messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after being granted glad tidings that he wanted to give all his wealth away. He was happy he was you know, excited. And the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells him keep some of your wealth. Keep some of your wealth. I think there's a very important lesson in there. At times, you know, when we too happy or too sad. We might do something that's a little bit irrational. Look at the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Yes. If somebody wants to give all his wealth
He wants to do a good deed. One of us might think Yeah, give it and give more and give more. A messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a vision. He said, If this man gives everything now what will he live off? It will become, you know, a liability to society maybe maybe, even when it came to one of those habit of a loved one who was seeking monk and he wanted to give all his wealth away. And then he said no half and then eventually he reached a third imagine for wanting to give all of it away the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, No, and the third is a lot, it's better for you to leave those who are inheriting your money, your two girls at the time, you had to leave them
with something instead of leaving them to beg from the people. And this vision and this, you know, looking further into the future. I'm not saying knowing the unseen but I'm saying you know being realistic is something we take some of the is a lesson we take from the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam
Yes, absolutely. That's so true. When really emotional, we make decisions that affect us.
Gemini moving on to the next story we find a last panel which Allah speaks about know alayhis salam in brief. You mentioned his story he mentioned the Allah says what Lord Allah He never had more.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala then mentioned the story of no Halley's Sallam in brief. For me, what stood out is how Allah subhanho wa Taala says, after he was delighted after his people, you know, they said that the sky We don't want to believe in him his messages false etc. Allah says
he then saved him nfj now who have angina? Well, I can't quite remember right now. But he's Allah says that he saved him. Right? Some of them have a CD mentioned that when you realize when you realize that the only one who can save you from the harm of people is Allah, then you've truly reached a level where you know what, you you truly living the Hadith and you live in Islam where you know that nobody can benefit you in any way and nobody can harm you in any way except Atlantic people try and you are steadfast isn't Allah, Allah will protect you and save you.
Yes, we're lucky we tend to attribute power to people who don't really actually deserve that power. You know, in our minds, we feel that they have the control or authority over something not remembering or forgetting that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who ultimately controls everyone and everything in existence. So if we have a link with he who controls everything, in absolutely no need to worry about anyone else. Lots of kind of mortalities for Intel will lead to infamous sell to come in a job, that if you are to turn away, then I have not asked you for any reward. In Nigeria Illa Allah indeed my reward is only upon a loss of kind of what Allah so what I find amazing is the
way in which he says that if you are to turn away, then my reward is upon Allah subhanho wa Taala, I haven't asked you for anything. The fact that he hadn't asked them for anything meant that he didn't really bothered about the response, meaning, if you are angry, you are angry, if you are happy, you are happy. Look, I'm telling you what's right. And I'm telling you what's the truth.
I think this affects a lot of the people who are giving that one or those who are demands or shares. Or a person just generally in in that position. What happens is, you've got someone giving you a salary, and the minute that something goes wrong, and you have to say the truth you you're stuck between the truth and getting your salary. So you now you know sided with the people the committee or the people of the mosque or the leaders in the mosque. Why? Because and I'm not talking about any specific mosque, but it happens so often. That because now a my salary comes from here. Now, I was actually sitting in imagelist one day when a scholar reminded one of the machetes, that was the that
was his summer it is Coco wrist is in the heavens, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who gives you and provides for you Don't worry where your wages will come from, if you are in such a situation. And I think it's important for a person to remember also, that as far as possible, try to gain some other sort of income. Some other form of income work towards something Yes, your time for madrasa your time for teaching your time for Inanna. Give it in full make sure that you give it fully and properly. But on the side when you have time. Go online trade, do something, find some goods buy something sell. It produces
thing and sell it, maybe that will grow. And if you have the right intention that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes you independent, then you can become fully independent and then contribute towards the masjid that was employing you at some point. So with the right intention that Yeah, Allah, I want to be independent so that nobody has a say over me. Rather, when I need to say something of the truth, then I will say it and it will be out there. I think that this is very, very important because our Deen gets lost in the way, you know, on the way once people are doing this way they support the wrong ideology or mentality solely because it comes from someone who is in authority or in power.
You know, you mentioned such an important point that we can actually go on episodes and episodes and carry on speaking about this point. A few things I'll add bay is when it comes to this point, especially unfortunately, it's looked upon as a taboo in society for somebody who is known as a chef or somebody's religious to go out and actually have his own business or actually earn some of his own wealth. As soon as Allah Allah He will sell them himself bought and sold. So how about a loved one home bought and sold on the Ashleigh who are given glad tidings of gentlemen, the 10 we find a lot. Most of them are businessmen, if not all, and they were the richest of people have not found
what they love. And you're the one who is sorry, he says that before he wanted to marry the daughter for solo muscle lavallee was telling them he went with one of the people to a one of the marketplaces and he wanted to buy some, some lemon grass to bring it from there to Medina in order to sell Who is this this is the son in law of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, someone who has given glad tidings of gender, messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam today, my son in law and daughter, they want to get married. So everybody, you know, stop raising money and give and give no, he himself went up. That's another that's one point. Another point is try as far as you can. We're
not talking people situations are different. They are those who may be in a better position than others. Alhamdulillah they don't need to take any money or anything. Alhamdulillah that's Mina from Allah, you should thank him and try your best to carry on those who may be in that position. Try not to make your deen your knowledge, something that's only money money. And we're not saying it's not allowed. We think don't make your intention that try to have something else try to make your knowledge and your message standard out, you know, other people having to prop it up or support you. Another interesting point that comes up, even when it comes to organizations, we don't say don't ask
for money, don't this. But we can't be people who carry on saying give, give, give, give give. And we've got no structure and no nothing in place that is sustainable. What happens if you rely on farmers and they don't have a harvest? Does that mean the poor people used to get starve to death? What happens to those people who, for example, you don't want they were reliant on a certain business that always provided this year they don't have a profit. That's why if you look at the MBR, Allahu Salatu, was Salam some of the stories, Yusuf alayhi salam, yes, he was an abbey, we read the story about it, but we could call him in our terms,
the economist of his time, look at how he could see further into the future, evening luck, through the dream, you know what these seven years are going to come we need to plan for it, there's going to be difficult times. Also another thing I find that a lot of organizations and that, or even businesses in general, when things are going well, that's not the plan for the next five years, it's not going to be like that it will go up and it will also go down, prepare for those days. And I think there's a lot more that can be said there. It's about time we get to the next level. And we start being from those Rola data organizations who can sustain ourselves Firstly, and we can give
others not always asking, asking and asking.
Yes, well, it like you said, we can continue talking about this for a long time because you mentioned something about business being up and down and I can I can do quite
if and I think it cut off a little while there's one more thing I want to mention on that topic is when we go out,
we see on banner ad Tina dunia has an overload grantors goodness in this world. Well, Phil has an end after working out and now this we also talking we're not only making glad that you know grant agenda, we also asked him for goodness in this world, and there is nothing wrong. There is nothing wrong in learning from somebody else who knows in business, no matter who they may be.
There's nothing wrong in learning, learn from somebody who, you know, a problem we have is we always want to look back in history and say the Muslims were once great. And we once knew this and talk about now those were Muslim still cometan adhaalath? Yes, it's nice to know that they brought this knowledge and this knowledge and this knowledge, what about us? It's about time we, in the same way in the previous few years ago, hundreds of years ago of a cane, took that knowledge, took it back home and implemented, we need to go to them and learn certain things to implement them today. There's no use talking about a wonderful past when we ourselves today have got nothing to show the
only thing we say is this guy came before and he spoke about this and this was a rule that's being practiced now what about us? So I think it's a very long topic that we could carry on. Yes, yes. Well, I want to say so much but I think let's move on inshallah.
Moving on to the next story. Allah subhana wa tada speaks immediately after that he speaks about Musa alayhis salaam. He speaks about Medallia's Salah maga magicians, he speaks about the duel of masala salon, he eventually speaks about the demise of Iran and how he was gone. Only a few points 10 out here. Number one is the point of magic. When Musa alayhis salam said Allah Musa magic to me, he said in the last year, the only thing these people came with was magic. And Allah will most definitely destroyed a few things and a few categories of people. Number one, when I'm talking about magic in general, some people are a bit too superstitious, every little thing is magic and I and of
that sort, no, read your car, read your device, even in lab, a lot will protect you. As for somebody who's actually been, you know, afflicted by this is different types of magic Maven, maybe in the future will speak about it. But look at how the stories we mentioned before the first thing you need to be attached to Allah. Remember this cue of yours will come from Allah only Musa alayhis salaam said in Allahu below, Allah will destroy this magic is different types of magic. What brings husband and wife closer, what takes them apart? You know, for somebody to go mental etc. These different types of things is also iron and has said the evil eye jealousy. We should read our cup. If somebody
is afflicted with this, remember the first thing attach yourself to unlock the second thing, try and get rid of all you know sinful things and things that disobey Allah, whether it's in the house, whether it's in your deeds, your day to day, whether it's music or anything, everything that you know displeases a lot, throw it out. That's one of that's the second one of the most important things you can do. Another thing when reading the Quran, remember who is Allah, you need to ponder over his names you need to realize who he is. Some people say I read so many as God and it doesn't work. Because you haven't read it with conviction. You don't know who you're calling out to unless
it's one or the other, it will oblige me and upto Yama, Yama, imagine this, this being the whole world is is nothing. He holds it completely, and the heavens and everything that is there. And it will be all you know folded up the minute you realize that you calling out to the one who is kind The one who wants to give you the one who is able to do everything for you. Things become easy. recite the Quran, don't become attached to a party, or erahthi somebody who comes to recite, especially we're not saying it's Haram. We're saying especially people who make a business out of it so many times, you reciting on yourself with that horseshoe with that concentration, fear of Allah
realizing who he is, that recitation is more beneficial than any rd or any shift that can come to your house to decide on you or somebody who is sick.
It's excellent. Well, I was hoping you'd carry on you know, because it's a topic that people really, really, really need. Just today, I met someone and he told me he says, You know, I think someone's done magic to my son. And I told him I said, Look, the best thing you got to do is attach it to yourself to Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, remember what Allah and ask him to get rid of this problem. And you've mentioned some solid points number one, remember Allah subhanho wa Taala attach yourself to Him. Number two, get rid of the disobedience in your life. You know that that's very important. And number three is to know Allah subhanho wa Taala with these names and these
attributes, of course, we all call out to Allah subhanho wa Taala but how many of us do so knowing the being and the capabilities that he has the attributes names that he has, when you do this with this in mind, then definitely your drought will change your Salah will change your connection with Allah Subhana Allah changes so
I really believe that this is a very important topic that you've touched on there. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says what? Yeah, I was gonna be Benny Salah el Baja. And he saw the split the sea splitting, right? We took the children of Israel across the sea. Now, around here, I don't know what do you think to hooba so Pharaoh and his soldiers pursued them in tyranny and enmity, right? Had to either Adela Kovalchuk until when drowning over to keep
fear around followed Moosa into the sea, yet he knew that Allah subhana wa Taala had split the sea. How do we know this? Because he knew that I'm not the one that did it. I didn't have the authority and capacity to do so. So there must be a being that did this Formosa, who's that being the love of Musa and Howard, which is Allah subhanho wa Taala with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So even though he knew that he didn't do it, he took the chance to go in and pursue Moosa and some of them effectively, they make a, an analogy here and see that perhaps he did this because of the people around him. So there were people around him now it's too late for him to now say,
I didn't do this. Or I'm not the one you know, I can't go into the sea, who says defeated you? He's gone into the C, the C split for him and his people. Now are you going to follow him? He has no chance to sit and start discussing and say no, hold on wait, he just followed. So he led himself into destruction because of those around him. Sometimes, the people around you can cause you to do harm to yourself and then as well, you need to be very careful your company is of utmost importance, you can end up taking drugs just because your friend is doing so you can end up leading yourself into destruction just because those around you are they are sometimes you feel too ashamed not to do
it. I think we from this what we can take away to implement into our lives is peer pressure. Don't just do something because those around you are doing it or because of the pressure that's mounting on you to do it. rather think rationally. At that moment, if your own had finally said, Okay, I believe in Allah subhana wa Tada. It would have sufficed him, it would have been okay for him, he would have his Toba would have been accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala Bismillah by the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But he, he chose to follow Musa into the seat. And ultimately A few moments later when he uttered that she had it was useless. And there was no point because at that
point, he had already seen the unseen
you know, just before that Allah says when masala is salami, they do have an LA Salaam, saying, I mean, Allah says that way to come up, I've accepted your both of you to us, even says, first ottima stay upright. So you know, stay on the right path be, you know, carry on with your good deeds don't give up so many times we find out when it may be accepted, but because we have come as we mentioned before, from a place of victory, we we then throw it away by doing evil by doing that. So here he is telling us what to do you know what your drive is accepted, stay steadfast carry on with the good you are doing and increase that after that Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how he drowned, fit
around. For me, what's interesting is that film came out of the city going behind these people as a tyrant trying to get hold of them. He didn't realize Allah took him out of his palace, and he's everything that was under his reign at the time. Allah took him out, drove him out to a place where you know, his destruction was written so many times we don't realize that, you know, we think we are doing something we are going to get somebody else. And that's just the trap you go into and you're going to fall into it. That's why Allah says nested resume and hateful layer level. Some people you know, those who carry on doing bad and evil, Allah takes them he leads them to a place where they
destruction will be and they don't even realize he was going there. He was going to catch them and bring them back. Little did he know that his demise was written they in the sea
will lie online 100% sometimes we don't even realize where we are headed and what we're doing a lot some kind of autolysis fileopen gkv bennani Kelly tupuna demon hunter k after he died.
He says that today we will save you with your body or we will save your body so that you may be a sign for those after you right
So, what I find amazing is that this is poetic justice here if your own was telling himself and he was telling the people that I am God and our bokun Allah and the highest, right, you're that same body, that he claimed to be part of that godhood is now a sign, who is very humanity and his weakness in front of the people. Allah subhanho wa Taala in this is a profound message for all of us. That no matter how high you are, Allah subhanho wa Taala early on says we're in if you're on an island filled up, and you're out was high upon the earth, in the earth, He was very arrogant, right? But here he is lying dead and his corpse is assigned for those to come after him. So this poetic
justice in that remember that you belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala. In Allah indeed we are for Allah subhanho wa Taala we belong to him completely in totality. We don't own our bodies we don't, yes, we may be in possession of them for now. But ultimately, that belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So no matter how great you may become, how big you know, muscularly you may become all authoritatively you may become, remember that ultimately, all of us belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Even if you're around, he died. When we saw him, you know, imagine the feelings that they had, this was a people who were enslaved by their home and how he had punished them and put them
through so much. And now here he is lying dead corpse gone. Same for them. That you know, no matter how high a person may be, ultimately he belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala he will return to
Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all you know a good death and make us from those who are pious saved from punishment and entered into alpha docile Allah the highest part of me, Geminis anything you'd like to add on. I think there were a few requests where people were requesting we speak about magic so maybe inshallah, after Ramadan, we could make a session talking about magic etc. shall be vanilla, shall shall does that color, otherwise, anything else? That's all I think about a lot of fake inshallah we'll see you tomorrow. Tomorrow is the 12th Jews, Allah subhana wa Jalla speaks about the best of stories the story of use of alleys Salaam, and inshallah we'll try to get
something a few benefits which people generally haven't heard. Even in love, we will try our best and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us the tofik ami. she'll learn
Okay, so mid or late.
