I'd like to warmly welcome all of you here Desikan Allahu khairan for coming.
This event has been organized by the revival society in IUL. The topic for tonight is the musc sellers, the importance of good companionship. The title, as many of you may know has been derived from the Hadith that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the example of a good companion in comparison with a bad one is like that of the mask seller and the blacksmith's billows. From the first you would either buy mask or enjoy its good smell, while the billows would either burn your clothes or your house or you get a bad nasty smell there. The importance of good companionship therefore cannot be overstated. Insha Allah we'll learn more about the topic tonight. Moving on the
speaker for tonight's event is Chef Dr. Isom Raja Dr. Isom is a classically trained scholar and the founder and executive director of Aarhus University. Bonnie Quaid, he graduated with BA in Chile, from the Islamic University of Medina and holds a Master's and PhD in Islamic Studies.

That's it from me for now. So let's jump straight into the most awaited part of the program. The familiar share.
hamdulillah salatu salam ala Rasulillah. While earlier he was at the
salon de la Mora koutou.
I'd like to thank the brothers and the sisters and Reavers community for inviting me. Actually, this is my first
live session after the pandemic. So Subhanallah how time passes, how things change. I remember last time I was here, it was before COVID.
And since then, I haven't given any live talk
of it was online. Until now. I don't know why I'm actually I was invited for a private gathering. That's all but this is the first time I'm here again. And it's a different feeling. So once again, Zack Longfellow for inviting me. It's my
pleasure to be here with you.
The topic about the good companionship is very relevant to our time. Because we notice the weakness of the OMA, we notice that
Islam is under attack almost from everywhere. And one solution is the good and strong companionship.
If you go back to the time of the companions of the Prophet salallahu Salam, and you see how they were strong, as the Prophet salallahu Salam described the Muslim ummah, as one body, that it aches when part of it is sick. That's how they will. And that's the difference in our time that we are living almost like separately. every community, every society is different from the other. We see what's happening to our brothers and sisters in Palestine.
And we are saddened by what's happening to them. But what are we what are we doing really to change that? We see what's happening to our brothers and sisters in India.
But what are we doing really to change that? We see what's happening for our brothers and sisters in China we go and what are we really doing to change that? And on and on and on. So one solution to the weakness of our oma in this time is the good companionship.
I want to start with an Ayah from the Quran, which is related directly to this topic. I have 13 of Surah Nisa, please. If you have the Quran or the app, do open ASAP absurd Elisa. I have 13 and 14. Now, the 13 says, tick Allah wa mejora la hora Sula, who you the Phil who did nothing tangerine oil and how holiday interfere with elegant, loving woman. Yeah. Scylla Hora Sula, who is
now on holiday in fear. Well.
I have 30 talks about the believers entering Jana. I have 14 talks about this believers entering hellfire. So why am I mentioning this? How that is related to our topic.
I want this to be interactive. I'm not going to just give you
everything. What do you think? How this is related to the topic? Think I do the law. These are the limits of Allah azza wa jal. These are the laws of Allah. May Allah Allah Hora Sula and whoever obeys Allah and His messenger, you the Telugu Janette in tangerine is Danielle and
he will admit him to Gardens beneath which rivers are flowing.
But then comes the point. Why am I mentioning this is
the I started addressing individuals. Why don't you let allow Ursula how you feel?
I'm not going to go deep in the Arabic language because I know some of you may not really know
Arabic, but the idea is addressing individuals you the three who that's the verb addressing individual one genetic integrity intact. But then before we either end Allah azza wa jal said, Holly dynorphin,
addressing plural, plural, why we is switched from singular to plural. That's the point. Loneliness
Loneliness is punishment.
Even in paradise? No, not a single ayah in the Quran, you will find it mentioning the reward with an individual never. It's always plural. Always. That tells us that seeking companionship is a human nature.
It is human nature.
You need to have
and the Prophet sallallahu sallam said me no morality again. The believer is like a mirror to his brother. How beautiful is this hadith Subhan Allah. So before I switched to this hadith back to the ayah
the next time
I immediately Woman Yeah, c'est la hora Sula, who were that that will do though you do feel Munna holiday and fear or singular.
Every time Allah azza wa jal mentioned rewar. In the Quran, it came in the plural.
You have the Quran, go ahead, look at all the if that mentioned the word, it's talking about plural, even though this ayah in particular, I gave this example because it's very clear, it started addressing the individual and the Quran is very eloquent. Allah azza wa jal would not switch from addressing individual to plural unless there is a purpose. And that purpose is what to tell us. That even in Ghana, you're not alone.
You're not alone.
I'm saying this because we have been filled
in this culture, of this time, of building your profile, building your career, seeking better job and all that is good, all that is fine. But never ever forget about your peers, your brother's your companions.
Amara de la han, one time he was sitting
with his companions, some of them were not the companions of the Prophet salallahu Salam, and some of them were of
the successors and he asked them what do we you wish for? What do you wish for? One of them said, I wish for a lot of money, not for the sake of money, but to spend it in the way of Allah azza wa jal.
Another one says, I wish for power, so I will use it for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, and one of them until Omar Abdullah has said you know what I wish for I wish for men, like a cadet.
As obey Subhan Allah He was mentioning the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam be strong companions, because this is really the treasure.
These are the treasure,
a good supporter helper.
From your friends,
we will come to the qualities and the description, the conditions of having
good companionship, as the title of the topic and the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about the seller of the mosque and the blacksmith.
Back to the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Salam, I want me to add to it.
Does the mirror lie to you?
Does the mirror tell you something different? No, it's honest.
And that's how the brothers should be.
The true brother is the one who tells you the reality, not what you like to hear.
When Allah azza wa jal
mentioned the passion
of the disbelievers and how they are regretting being in hellfire. One thing they regret is that Allah azza wa jal mention and this is for us to learn in Surah Surah Surah 26 I want to one
fellow musician feeling
well, so they've been humming
what do they regret the disbelievers in hellfire, that they do not have any intercessor? No, they don't have any close friend.
A close friend, why? Why Allah azza wa jal is mentioning that to tell us that the close friend to you will intercede for you on the Day of Judgment. That's why the pious predecessors said try to increase your good companions try to increase from them because they will help you on the Day of Judgment.
Not just here in this dunya they will help you when it really matters on the Day of Judgment.
As Allah azza wa jal said in Surah, Surah 43.
From Allah and ammunition feeding
less alone, even Bob only about then I do.
All the friendship that you see if it was not based
fear of Allah azza wa jal if it was not based on piety, it will turn to what animosity on the Day of Judgment.
Allah we all might even babble humbly better than I do.
That's what Allah azza wa jal says instead of zakat. So this is why you need to increase
the good companions,
they will benefit you.
The only one that Allah azza wa jal stated, as a companion to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Abu Bakr of the Allah one in Surah October, if we are fully Sahibi, he led tasm when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told his companion
and that's interesting, because all the Companions Amara, Usman Ali, all of them are the Allahu they are all campaigns so the prophets on line seven, but Abu Bakr in particular, he was the companion of the Prophet salallahu Salam, how much his companionship to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam benefited him.
Abu Bakr or the Allah Juana became the best man in this coma, his deeds, overweight the deeds of the entire ummah. That's what the prophets, Allah wa salam said, why, because of his companionship to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you see how much the good companionship benefits you.
On the other hand,
look at the uncle of the Prophet salallahu Salam, Abu Dhabi.
He knew, he knew that his nephew is a messenger of Allah.
And he defended him. And he actually said one of the most beautiful poems in the Arabic language in the Arabic literature. If you want to read and enjoy a poem, enjoy the poem of Abu Talib in defending the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He knew his nephew is a messenger of Allah. until his last breath the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him Yeah, ham.
Or uncle, c'est la ilaha illa Allah let me help you.
Who was there Abuja his friend.
You see how the friendship affects you?
He told him a thermocouple and mill letter the mortality are you turning away from the religion? Of the leader of flesh?
Your father at Dimopoulos that's the effect of the bed companion. Yeah, exactly as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentioned in the Hadith of the mosque seller, and the blacksmith
Naturally, when you say it's okay, I don't mind if there are bad people. I am strong. Naturally you are influenced you are affected by others. This is the Sunnah of Allah azza wa jal, don't fool yourself. This is for animals and inanimate objects. You look at colors, the strong color black will overshadow the other colors, same thing in life, the strong will influence the weak. So do not say I am
having immunity. No.
Always seek the good companions because
you do not know
until it is too late how they influence you.
As Allah azza wa jal says in Surah
Surah 25 We all may have the volume or the Yahoo yeah late and the hull is tomorrow. So Lisa Vela Yahweh later, later Neelam Fullan Lila, abandoned me and his victory by the eighth journey on the day when the wrongdoer will bite on his finger
on his hands, while my amble volume or Isla de the total reality to have the MaHA Sulis Avila scholars mentioned that this ayah was revealed in the case of one of the disbelievers about the NABI might, who initially believed in the Prophet satellites and but because of his friendship to Abuja,
Abuja insisted that he won't talk to him until he this believes in the prophets, Allah salah, and not only that, but he speaks in the face of the profit and loss and he did that.
How much that benefited him. Now, we are reading this prior until the day of judgment. So
It's an essential topic. It's very important, every time everywhere, but in our time in particular, because we are facing attacks from everywhere, and we need
to strengthen ourselves alone.
We are weak, but with our brothers and sisters, we are strong.
Even Musa alayhis salam Subhan Allah when you read into a PA,
when Allah azza wa jal commanded Musa alayhis salam to go to the ground. He's a prophet of Allah.
He's already chosen by Allah azza wa jal, and physically, Musa Ali Salam was wrong, yet still. He asked for help. Hello, Michelle. Hello, Saudi westerly Emery. What's that Emily Sammy your fall only starting from I 46 In Surah PA. But then he said what your ally was Iran mean ally and help me with a man from my family.
Or should the biggie as the that's the point. Push to the biggie EZRI what a shriek houfy Emery gave us a hacker kefir on Kurata Tefera Subhanallah Musa Ali salaam who is one of the five Falola as Mina Rasul.
Still he asked for help
you think alone, you can do everything? No.
So we need
we can balance? We need the friends. But the question is, who are they? Who are our friends? Who are the ones that elevate us? Instead of putting us down?
Who are the ones who could remind us of Allah subhanaw taala? Who with them, we are stronger? We are closer to Allah azza wa jal.
That's the question.
I can go on and on, and I will leave
few things for the next part. But I will share with you a story from our time.
A lot of stories in the past from the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. But I will share with you a story that I left because I saw it
one of my chefs, Ramallah chef, the father in Syria in Damascus, he was
one of the scholars of Hadith.
He used to always verify their Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Salam, just like Scheffler Daniel Rahim Allah just like the other scholars of Hadith in our time, and I visited him, as many of the students of knowledge visited him in his small apartment in Damascus,
where you find huge library and a lot of students but the place is small. One time one of his friends visited him. One of the scholars from Saudi Arabia, Chef baccarat was Abraham, Allah, Shiva, his a member of the grand juries assembly in Saudi Arabia. He visited the sheikh, and he saw that his his living with his family in a
two bedroom apartment on so when students CA, his entire family is locked in one one room
waiting for the students to leave. And most of the time there are students. So what did the chef do? This is a practical example of what a friend would do to his friend. Chef buckaroo. Rahim Allah
did it didn't say anything, or do anything. He went back to Saudi but then he said to him, he told me I liked Damascus. And I am planning on
a place there
for summer time for vacation. So can you please help me looking for big house in a good location. So should have the other one are lots of short. You are my friend I will help you. And you look around and
until he found for him a place. He told him this is a good place. The chef told him she told him I want a place with a separate entrance, one main entrance and then a separate entrance where it leads to the room where there is a library because I like seclusion with the books with a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu.
He told him I found what you're looking for. Big apartment with three bedrooms with a separate entrance and the main entrance
When the chef sent to him again, he told him good, how much the cost? I will send you the money. He sent him the money
to make the deal, then he told him, could you please find furniture
for that apartment, because I'm going, I'm coming for only a short time, I don't have time to go and see, I wanted to be ready. So again, the shade of blonde should have recorded rahamallah until the apartment was ready. And he sent him pictures, who says this story, his son, Muhammad, the son of Sheikh Abdullah Amala, he shared with us this story.
So after everything was ready, and he told him, he had said to him shake, I have the keys with me.
The chef told him, this apartment is for you, not for me.
I'm not planning on coming again, at all to Syria. I am aging and my situation and everything. I did this for you.
Imagine, this is one of many examples in our time for what a real friend would do to his friend.
He told him ship, it's not appropriate for you that students have knowledge coming and they are making it difficult for your family. You have to have an appropriate place that service is for you. Not only that, the shapes of him I have to tell this to people he told him no, please, I'm not doing this so I could have more likes and followers. I'm doing this for the sake of Allah azza wa jal
And subhanAllah the chef insisted. He didn't want that to be known about him, only after he died. This story was so now my point is what if this is something that was done here in this dunya you think in the akhira a true friend would leave you when he sees you that you are facing the punishment of and five?
Have you taken the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as your best friend? Because the most of the Prophet sallallahu sallam was Almighty Yara Almighty, my alma the dua of the Prophet SAW Selim was not for himself most of our God Allah I want new career I want big house I want brand new car I want wife I don't you want all of that? What about your brothers and sisters?
Most of the die of the Prophet sallallahu sallam was for the ummah.
Have you taken the prophets Eliasson as your friend? Because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam will intercede for every believer of the Day of Judgment,
the greatest intercession on the Day of Judgment, Shiva Loveman, for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he prostrates, the for Allah azza wa jal
to start the accountability, and then the shatta for the Prophet salallahu salam for the believers.
So there is a lot
to share about examples
of good companions. But remember, first and foremost, who's going to remind you have Allah azza wa jal who's going to make you closer to Allah subhanaw taala who's going to make you better with him?
Just as Musa alayhis salaam, pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala
just says Allah azza wa jal mentioned about the disbelievers how they regret they did it they didn't have good companions
How are we doing with time?
Normally, when we say a companion,
a friend, someone that you know, someone that you love, someone that you've spent a lot of time with, and when we talk about the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the best of the companions, they are the ones who spent most of the time with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
They believe in the Prophet sallallaahu Salam,
and they spent time with him. That's the technical definition of a companion. The scholars of Hadith the scholars of the soul, they have a difference in the definition of a of a companion. However, if you read in Surah kinetin, when Najimy either Hawa novela Sahiba qu one our Allah azza wa jal addresses the kuffaar not the believers, Allah azza wa jal says what Najmi either How about this
Are when it falls
novela Sahiba could be your companion. The Prophet Salah Salem is their companion they didn't believe in him. Why Allah azza wa jal says about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he is the companion.
They didn't believe in Him. We just said that the companions are the ones who believed in the Prophet Swanson. He is their companion because they knew him very well.
They knew his character, they knew that he wouldn't change and that is a true companion.
The one that when you really need him,
he's there for you.
As Allah azza wa jal says, inserted the query is 20 to one outside, hey, boom, we made you know, your companion, our companion, we don't even believe in him. You know him very well. He wouldn't lie to you. In Surah Yunus Surah 10 When
Allah azza wa jal mentioned,
the Kufa and how much they were seeking for evidence from the Prophet Salam, salam, something physical, they don't want the ayat of the Quran, Allah azza wa jal said in as 16 in Surah fewness for Abdullah beef to feed come on ramen, probably one of the greatest miracles of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, I have spent a lifetime with you 40 years for other lobbyists to fake Omar Omar Amin company, if
you know me very well.
How could you doubt what I'm saying? 40 years I haven't said a lie. 40 years I haven't uttered a bad word. 40 years you've been calling me the trustworthy now I will change this panel. This is what even the kuffaar knew.
When he asked about Sofia, or the Allah one and he was not a Muslim yet. And they told him Have you ever experienced any light from him? And he said no.
He said that he wouldn't fly now against Allah azza wa jal while he was telling the truth all that time.
Never. It just doesn't make sense. That's a testimony from a caffeine from this labor. So the point is,
a friend is someone you know very well, someone who does not change someone who has principles.
who supports you,
not just in this dunya. But when it really matters in the hereafter.
As the interpreter said about a 101 of Surah to Shara increase the good companions because you will have them when you truly need them. They will intercede for you, they will not be happy in Jannah
until they have their friends with them, not just family members, but their friends also.
Another interesting fact, which Allah azza wa jal mentioned in the Quran
calling the wife
you may feel will not mean it will only hear what a B or saw he read the E word when he
did they when a man would run away
from his brother,
his mother and father
and his female companion? Was it his wife?
Wife is a companion? Yes.
Which is interesting.
I know many of you are not married yet, you will experience that later. She will be either your companion or you're
not going to continue. Some of you are already laughing. So you know.
This is the reality.
The truth of life when you enjoy it, as the Prophet salallahu Salam did when he had his wife as not just a wife to do certain job and I do certain job No, but as a friend, as a companion or psyche, but that's why when she died of the law,
he changed and people can notice that even the when she died, it was called the year of sadness.
Because they could see that in the face.
of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
And nowadays, a lot of wives are telling their husbands you see how the Prophet SAW Selim was loyal to his wife, you see, he always mentioned her. And the husbands always say, yeah, you just have to die and see how I will be loyal to you.
Having a true companion is important and essential, it's part of life. The question is whether you have made the right choice or the wrong choice, and this will be inshallah something that we will be, we still have some time because I was planning on closing and
this will be what we will mention, in sha Allah and the second part about the qualities
and the conditions of a good companion.
What we suffer now
that we are under from afar,
is forcing us to believe in the principles that the kuffar they are having.
Not even your freedom of choice, that this is my beliefs, and that's how my religion commends me. No. You have to believe in
homosexuality. You have to believe in transgenderism. You want to do it go ahead. That's between you why you have to spread and spit out this film in front of me Subhanallah
a human nature that Allah azza wa jal reminded us of
when Adam Alayhis Salam and his wife, they both committed the sin.
For but that's Lahoma. So to Houma
immediately what happened when they committed the sin? They were exposed that our was exposed. So what did Allah azza wa jal say as a human natural reaction for toffee ca c fan Ali, Hema we work in Jana,
they kept on covering themselves from the leaves of the trees in paradise. That's a human nature.
Even a young child would like to be alone doesn't want to be seen. That's a human nature, then what happens when we grow up and we see adults and they are not having any shame any higher. That's the influence that they want to force it on us. Subhanallah This is another reality of our time. That's why I'm saying we really need to have good companions. because like it or not, you will be forced to choose one.
So if you already made your choice, and it was a good one, then you are safe. Otherwise they are forcing you
communities, environment, media,
it's not enough that they are sinning against Allah azza wa jal openly, they are forcing that on you. And there are many examples in our country. The most recent one is the football, the soccer player in France, who just simply didn't want that this is against my religious No. And they waged a campaign against him. How come you refuse that? It's my religion.
I don't want to be part of this filth.
This is against human nature, as Allah azza wa jal said, Mercer come behind me in a hadn't phenylalanine no one from humanity preceded you with it? How could you do that? And they try to force it on us. It's, it's a human choice. No, it's a disease. It's a disorder. Now, if you say that, if you are a doctor, they will bother you. They will prevent you from practicing immediately. Subhanallah This is the time that we are living in. That's why I say it was a good topic is that Hello, hello. It was on this path. We need that in our time because alone, we are weak. But together in sha Allah united, we are strong.
So I will close with this for the first part. Apolo Kali hada was stopped for Allah.

Alaikum Allah azza wa jal says in Surah pika I have 28 What's the bid enough? Sokka my Lavinia the owner of the home below that you will Archie you read on our wall, dry Naka and to read the zenith or higher dunya while I thought, man I'll sell now Alibaba one victory now,
what can unravel for roto? If we wanted to talk about the conditions of a good companion, we can find all of that in this one higher i a 28 of South Africa, summarise the status of a good companion.
At the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he was keen to give that word to the kuffar. They were arrogant, and some of them refuse to sit alongside with the poor.
So Allah azza wa jal told the prophet Sallallahu wasallam do not listen to them.
Allah has commanded the Prophet sallallahu wasallam to sit
with the poor
and the humble if they are believers. Was there enough Sacher now? Levina? Yeah, the owner of the home builder that will actually
as I told you, as a general rule, who reminds you of Allah azza wa jal. That's a good companion.
Someone that does not just speak but acts when you see him. He don't have to listen. You just watch his actions. And you know that he is reminding you of Allah azza wa jal, some companions because of their excessive remembrance of Allah azza wa jal, people would remember Allah because of their remembrance to Allah subhana wa taala.
Allah azza wa jal described a Salah he Salam, wa Jalla nee mobile rockin Aina mcommerce Wow Sami we saw that he was the Cathy madam to hire he made me blessing wherever I am. Could you say that about yourself? Can you say that about the companions that you choose that they are really like a blessing for you? So what's the enough second, none Lavinia, don't have them. Below that you will actually
An interesting Hadith
from the Prophet salallahu Salam
in the site
in alila he Mala Catan. So yeah when you're performed, there are angels roaming the earth.
There are subject of search.
The believers who are remembering Allah azza wa jal
and when they find them
to write their names, so they will be rewarded from Allah subhanho wa taala.
Just like an attendance
then some of those angels would say, among when someone who didn't come for the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal.
So they tell Allah subhanaw taala what Allah azza wa jal says, also his name to be mentioned, hola como la yes rbwm jellies
they are the people they are the gathering, that they will never suffer
spamela Just like the musk seller, you didn't have to pay anything. They offer you nice smell. The same thing here. Your intention was not really to come and sit for the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal, but you weren't forgiven. Or shidduchim. Any other offer coulomb, that's a Palazzo GLCs someone just came to sit among the people who are pious. That's all he wasn't having the same intention as they have.
But he was rewarded like them. That's the influence of the good companionships panel.
Go back to the iron everything in the iron. If 28 Was there enough suck Mr. Lavinia, the owner of the home builder that you will actually you really don't know what they are sincere. Well after Binaca and how to reduce Zenit and hierarchy Binya Subhanallah, there are people
all over, they have all what they can see is this dunya.
And the Lhasa del told us about this example of people, this kind of people
and sort of the fossils,
sort of 28 The last story of the surah of the stories. So 28 is called sort of, sort of the stories. The last story is the story of our own in our own academy in Comox. Valley.
Long story short, was very rich, and he came out showing off with his entourage in front of people and
other Levina you read on the higher the dunya Yeah, later on. And if lemma oto Harun or we wish that we have like what our own hand in our lives will have been away, he's very fortunate.
Less than 24 hours what happened?
After Allah azza wa jal calls the earth to swallow him and all his property
was smashed. Lavina didn't know McKenna who will emcee a column
where you can ally of a super WrestleMania shot on a bad day.
In less than 24 hours, they changed everything hamdulillah
Lola among Allah Allah Allah Allah Casa Davina had it not been for the favor of Allah azza wa jal, we also would have been swallowed by the Earth just like our room. Less than a day ago, less than 24 hours ago, you were wishing to be like him what happened? That's the example of a bad friend who doesn't have a principal.
His or her principal is dunya, who's famous, who's rich, who's having a benefit.
One day they are with you the next day, they are not with you, they change their principles. The true friend will not do that.
will not do that. They seek the countenance of Allah azza wa jal, they seek the pleasure of Allah, you really don't know what you have.
a lot of times, and this is true, it happens. You're just in the wrong gathering. It just happened. Sometimes you cannot take yourself out of it. You're part of a family. Some of your family members are not Muslims. It just happened to be that this gathering of your family and some of them are disobedient Palazzo John, they're not practicing and they started making fun of Islam or you cannot just stick yourself out. You haven't known about that before. What do you do? Again? The answer is in the Quran.
In Surah Surah six is 68 What either either Lavinia Hobonichi yeah Tina, and whom have died the Hadith inquiry never ever be part of attacking Islam or an accomplice to people who are attacking Islam. What happens if
you are not part of it but suddenly you join that gallery? You were at the wrong time in the wrong place
what in my UCN NACA, Chopin, Fela Takuro the Baghdad Vikram alchemy one, that's what the law says. If the chiffon caused you to forget, do not sit after remembrance after you remember that these are not the good companions. This is not the good gathering. Never, ever sit with them fill out the DICOM alchemy one Subhanallah IO six eight of Surah Al Anon surah. Six gave us the practical answer. We could be in this situation. No one can say I have immunity against that.
So what do you do? That's the solution. It's in the Quran.
A lot of reward
from Allah azza wa jal, you could gain by fasting by praying by witnessing later to other but also by having a good companion.
And the hadith of Abu Huraira, or the Alon, inside Muslim,
to see his brother,
Their friendship was this on Allah azza wa jal, not for any worldly costs. So Allah azza wa jal sent an angel to ask him, Where are we going? Allah knows. But this is the beauty of this hadith to teach us.
Do you have any need? No. I am only going to see a brother
a friend and because of Allah azza wa jal.
So what did Allah azza wa jal say?
Allah azza wa jal told the angel to tell this man who traveled just to see his brother
Allah azza wa jal forgive his sins. This is inside Muslim from the hadith of Abu Huraira or the Allah one.
How much reward you could get by this Subhanallah This is one of the Sunnah that is deserted, abandoned.
We wake up
dunya dunya. Day in day out we sleep and all our thoughts are about this dunya how much money I made. What's the cost of this? What's the price of this hammer?
What about the sake of Allah azza wa jal.
This is one practical benefit of having a good companion, a good friend.
It is above it's transcending beyond the needs of this dunya
for the sake of Allah azza wa jal.
Never ever forget
the seven people that will be shaded under
the shade of Allah azza wa jal on the Day of Judgment.
One category of those seven, what are you learning to have Badfinger to people they love each other for the sake of Allah.
In another Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
in the Leela had a burden.
You lay so be Ambia Well, Abby shahada years before home, MBA over Shuhada
there are servants of Allah azza wa jal, neither prophets nor martyrs, yet the prophets and the martyrs with congratulate them would like what they have reached. So one of the Bedouins he sat on his knees he said O Messenger of Allah.
They are not prophets nor
martyrs. Yes, they are congratulated by vendor, Hanley him Lana, sir from Lenin describe them for us.
So the Prophet salallahu Salam nation
They are the ones who love one another for the sake of Allah.
I tell you one thing,
from my personal experience,
the strongest bonds,
I realized that I established during the days of my study at the university.
This is the friendship that lasted until now.
Maybe Maybe now you don't realize that but later you will realize it.
I don't know about you guys. But I see a similarity because I studied in the Islamic University of Medina. And what is unique about it is that we have over, we have students from over 140 countries from all over the world.
So there is no way that we will see one another again, for years.
At the last day of the study,
when we were happy that we finished, but we were reminding one another, until we meet again in sha Allah on the Day of Judgment. That's truly what we said, because in reality, there is no way that we could gather again in this dunya SubhanAllah.
So I'm telling you this because maybe now you don't realize it but later you will.
Maybe you are having
the best friends cherish those days.
Because you don't know what happens next.
Just like we were surprised by the global pandemic, no one was expecting it.
Hamdulillah we are back now but we ask Allah azza wa jal to protect us. So
the selection of the good companions is very important.
They are the ones who remind you of Allah azza wa jal
Muhammad bin was one of the pious predecessors, Rahim Allah He said, Let me come in Elijah Flf. There are only three things that you enjoy in this life. Only three things are salah, two humps, the five daily prayers, you pray them with the Jamar and even that Subhanallah you could see the joy when we are back in the masjid.
I can tell you today because I prayed without having to put the mask without the social distancing.
It seems like ages as Pamela
was tobiko solid that's the second one.
Also the coastline well cover for mineral age, the good companion and the last thing is
to live off
you don't have a lot of this dunya but also you're not index you are almost breaking even
say you didn't know you Brahma Allah and other pious through the assessor he said. So they will sue the bad companion
is like cryptominer A piece of fire Subhanallah as the Prophet SAW Selim mentioned in the Hadith, do not say Oh, I have protection i
i will not be influenced by a bad companion. Even if you didn't act
like that person.
At least the bad smell or the fire from the blacksmith will hit you
because you were near that. Or I didn't do it. You didn't do it. But you are near that. Allah azza wa jal says in Surah unbeknown, Parag be Inmet rien ne mejorado Rob Befana Gianni Phil called me of wanting or Allah, if you cause me to see what you promise them or Allah do not make me among the wrongdoing, people among wrongdoing people that was the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. That was what Allah azza wa jal said to the Prophet transcend them to say
just being with them, that's bad enough.
Fella John you can call me Valentin
Do not be at the wrong place.
Oh, I am there. It's okay. I will not do like what they are doing know if you have a choice, stay away.
The Prophet sallallahu sallam said Allah or Allah Dini hallelujah.
The hadith in Messina, Davina Muhammad, Salah Navidad and a termly hadith is authentic. It's enough to see who your friends are.
That's enough to tell who you are. Oh no, no, no, I'm not like them. You're not like them, then why you are a friend of them why they are your friends.
I will conclude with one beautiful Hadith. That Hadith was like one of the best Hadith for the companions.
The hadith of anus probably Allah Allah.
Allah saw the Allah on. He said a man came to the Prophet salallahu Salam asked him, yeah Rasul Allah Messiah. What is the final hour? The Prophet SAW Selim always liked to give practical
He didn't tell him I don't know.
It was simple to say I don't know
what the Prophet SAW Selim asked back. Now the other Tala what have you prepared for it?
the man said, love Allah Allah Allah Tala Kathira Salatin, well, I didn't prepare much of a badass, but I love Allah and I love the prophets of Allah.
That's what I have.
For the the prophets, Allah wa salam say,
Allah or your shadow man and
a man will be resurrected with the one whom he loves.
And us so the hola Han says, We will not happier with anything like we were happy with this hadith
for them, that was it for the companions. Why? Because they will truly
love lovers of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam they truly love the prophets, Allah said them, so they are guaranteed, they will be resurrected with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and that was enough.
Can you say that about yourself?
How did Allah we all say that we love Allah, we love the Prophet sallallaahu Salam. But the question is, Does Allah love you? Does the prophets of Allah instead of love you? That's the question. It's not just you say you love Allah and the Prophet says, and that's easier said than done. But does Allah azza wa jal love you? Does the prophets Allah said and love you.
Because what did Allah azza wa jal say in the Quran?
Probably Allahu Anhu. What are the one?
That's the perfect formula. It's not that they are pleased with Allah. Allah is pleased with them.
That's why whenever we say a name of a companion, we say Ravi, Allah on the Companions, probably Allah Allah is pleased with them. Why? Because he is indeed pleased with pleased with them. Can you say that about yourself that Allah has jellies pleased with you?
We hope that
but we don't have a guarantee. It is guaranteed for the companions of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
choose someone who's honest, who will tell you the truth, even if you didn't like to hear it.
Someone that protects
not just your presence, but your absence.
These are qualities of a good companion.
But first and foremost, someone who fears Allah subhanho wa Taala
imageevent Hasn't Rahim Allah in His beautiful book, Allah clap or CRP Muda. Within the force, he said, the wearer of having a bad companion, because you will entrust him with what you don't entrust others of sins. And once you do that, committing sins become easy for you.
That's the influence of a bad companion. Sometimes alone, you wouldn't be encouraged. You wouldn't dare to do this. But with another bad one.
Yes, like AGang and this was the case of the disbelievers at the time of the Prophet salallahu. Salam. And that's why in Surah Saba
at the end of the Surah, Allah azza wa jal reminded the kuffaar pull in nama evil Combi Wahida and the qumola He must know further from the de facto say I only advise you of one thing, one reminder, forget about the gathering, forget about the number.
Stand up before Allah azza wa jal alone, individually or in couples,
and then reflect us in Syria.
Malissa Jinnah? Your companion does not have an issue with his mind. He's not crazy.
So the point here is that Allah azza wa jal reminded the kuffaar to leave the influence of bad companions
because they encourage one another, to disobey Allah azza wa jal. Now, I left one important aspect, which is when we talk about companionship, friendship, just as the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it was real companionship real friendship, people that you know, but we live now, in this age of internet, where you have people overseas that you've never met, you've never seen, you don't know who they are. And some of us are keen to have a lot of following a lot of sharing a lot of people a lot of likes. Again, the same thing. Don't seek fame, at the expense of pleasing Allah azza wa jal
or I want to share this one or it's funny, I will have a lot of likes a lot of shares. That's the problem that we have with some people.
Choose the right content, just like you choose the right friend, just as you would choose a physical friend, the same thing online. It applies online also. Remember, on the Day of Judgment, you will be asked about that also. This is a time that you have spent, have you spent it wisely.
Will you be proud of it before Allah azza wa jal when your deeds will be presented? Because our deeds will be presented before everyone before the prophets of Allah Lucilla vokalia Malou for sale Allah who I'm Ana Cabrera Sula, who will,
it will be presented.
So, I hope inshallah no need, it's okay, I'm closing.
I hope Inshallah, we'll take a practical step of
the good companions, eliminating the ones that would not elevate us that would not be of help for us on the Day of Judgment.
Now, for the future.
One important thing,
one important advice, have your children as your friends, let them trust you.
Don't just give them commands and prohibitions. Don't just let them feed you. Instead of trusting you. We have the story of a man with his son. Yeah, Bernie. Yeah, Bernie. We have the story of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, with his son.
Paula. Yeah, but if Alma took Mom, that's an example of good education.
A mother who has her daughter
trusting her and telling her what she is facing. That's a good mother, instead of being the last one to know what her daughter is facing.
That's part of having a good companion. So as I said, I want to live with you with the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Salam, Al mer or Muhammad hub, your shadow, you will be resurrected with the one you love. Who are the ones that you like to meet Allah azza wa jal, with the celebrities, the rich ones, or the ones who will bring you close to Allah subhanaw taala. And as sort of the man said, we were not happy with anything like we were happy with this hadith, because they were true in that love to the Prophet salallahu Salam, and we ask Allah azza wa jal to be true. In our love to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam we asked Allah azza wa jal to help us in this dunya with good companions
with true friends that will help us on this journey
to reach Allah azza wa jal in the hereafter.
I asked Allah azza wa jal to make us among those who listen to the guidance and follow the rest of it. Once again, Jack Ma Hara for inviting me for this talk and Jack Ma Hara for being here.
sha Allah will meet again Baraka Luffy from
the line of work.

my advice because there are important details. Actually, this was one of my talks that I gave here with revivals. So I advise you to go back to the session about interacting between opposite genders.
