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

Hello

00:00:03--> 00:00:10

moto Haman hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah meanwhile Allah He was happy about

00:00:11--> 00:00:16

but um, so it's been a while. So I don't know what we're doing today where we are.

00:00:19--> 00:00:20

Does anyone remember?

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

Eva?

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

Jimmy NASA. Excellent. Very good.

00:00:40--> 00:00:42

Let McCann McConnachie

00:00:43--> 00:00:46

Exactly. So we're on the road on the road to

00:00:47--> 00:00:47

to Medina.

00:00:48--> 00:01:00

And an after swap, there are only two incidences that took place before the person have made it into the city of Medina. The first of which is a pitstop that they made.

00:01:01--> 00:01:02

And

00:01:03--> 00:01:14

it became a very popular incident. And basically were the prophets of Salaam and those who are with him. So that's our Booker, and rasilla. Walker. Who else two more people.

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

America for IRA and

00:01:22--> 00:01:22

I'm the lead

00:01:24--> 00:01:53

the guide. So there are four people on the road. They stop at the tent of a woman Her name was Omar but so maba nakoma, but they live together. And it was a way so they stopped at the place of Omar but and this was known to be like, like a known resting place or a resting spot where travelers would stop by rest there and then continue anyone going between Mecca and Medina, it was a non stop a place that you could stop.

00:01:54--> 00:02:12

So she would offer food and drink to travelers who passed by. And even though she herself was not extremely wealthy, as you will see in Sharla. So the processor limb, and those who are with him, arrived at her at her tents or at her her any place. And she was not a Muslim at the time either.

00:02:14--> 00:02:36

And they had experienced like a period of drought. And so their, their goats were very thin, they didn't have much wealth, much food or anything like that. So the President said him and his companions, they asked her for some milk, or some dates or some meat, they were willing to pay to buy some food, they want to pay and get something to eat. But she did not have anything. And she said to them, we're lucky

00:02:38--> 00:02:42

that if we had anything on it, we wouldn't be

00:02:43--> 00:03:27

we wouldn't be lacking in showing you hospitality. So then the problem saw a small goat on the side of the like her home or the tents. And this goat was so weak that it couldn't go away. To eat to graze with the other goats. In the morning of a mob, it took all the goats out to eat and to graze to hurt. But this good was too weak to even go out with them. And even later on one of my bad returns, you're going to see the description of the goats, but they're all thin. So if they're all thin, how thin is this one, it's not even able to go out to eat extremely weak. So the seller asked her does this goat have any milk? So my butt said she, it's too weak to have any milk? So then the

00:03:27--> 00:03:28

person lamb?

00:03:29--> 00:04:01

He asked her permission, he said, Would you allow me to milk it? And will you give me permission to milk this goat? And so she said yes, if you see any milk in here, then you may milker. So the proposal and then the he called for the goat brought it to him. And then he touched the other with his hand. And he mentioned the name of Allah and this other started to swell to fill up with milk. So the prophet SAW Selim then called for a container or a vessel and he milk in the milk the goat, and he melted into it. And

00:04:03--> 00:04:20

then notice what he does when he gives a Mbit to drink. You see any, you read the Hadith, and you might just pass by this point that he gives her to drink. But when you stop, and this is the whole idea of what we're trying to do, right, he was trying to stop on points that we've heard before. You see what Excellent,

00:04:22--> 00:04:40

excellent manners. And he said, Can I milk it? You said if you find anything? Go ahead, Danny. He didn't say well, if you find anything 5050 6040 He didn't say anything like that. She said if you find something hollows, and when he finds it, what is the first thing he does? He gives her to drink. Excellent. Excellent manners. Yeah. So

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

so he gives a lot but to drink from the milk and then he gives everyone in the group and the old drank until and then the president drank last. See this, even though he's the greatest. He's a prophet of Allah Azza wa sallam, he gave all him a drink. Then when they were done, then he drank last. Then he milked it one more time and

00:05:00--> 00:05:27

Then this time people drank at their leisure. Because when you're thirsty, you do a quick drink. You don't, you don't need, we don't taste you don't consume some cream and the milk, just whole milk, skim milk just you're thirsty, right? So after that one, then they drank a second one knee at their leisure. Then the person milked it one more time. And he left the milk for a bit. And

00:05:29--> 00:05:40

it is said that worker D. Okay, said that a walker, do you mentioned that this goat lived for many years after that? Now, what do we do with this narration?

00:05:44--> 00:05:44

walk to the

00:05:47--> 00:05:57

to the Walker is generally weak, right? Unless we find someone to authenticate it to say yes, it's okay. Someone else looked at it. Generally generations of unwelcome D we take them as weak.

00:05:58--> 00:06:10

Anyways for what it's worth and so then, then the price element has companions they mounted their cameras and they moved on. So then after that, Omar but husband, Obama, but then his name was a thumb

00:06:14--> 00:06:33

in an update, sorry, his name is them had been an Joan. Okay. He is also from Hosea. I like Omar but so then he came with the rest of his goats and the description is that they're all thin these goats so you must imagine the one that couldn't go out how thin and weak that one was.

00:06:34--> 00:06:57

So then when he saw the milk, and in the vessels, he asked Omar but what is this? And where did you get the milk when there is no goat? with milk here? No goat with milk. So his wife answered. We're lucky in Houma, Urbina, Rogers Raja Lu mobarak. Allah Blissett man passed by us. She doesn't know it's the Prophet of Allah. She doesn't know

00:06:59--> 00:07:05

any of that. She doesn't know about Islam or anything like that. Any idea why they didn't give her Dawa.

00:07:08--> 00:07:09

Hey, wha Musa.

00:07:11--> 00:07:39

So secrecy right there. They're trying to not cover you know, they're trying to cover their trucks figuratively. So that's why now. So then, even though she saw the problem for what about 30 minutes or something like that, but she actually gives one of the most detailed and one of the best descriptions we have until today of the profits or loss in the simple Bedouin woman, so the person for a few moments, and yet she gave one of the best descriptions and one of the most popular descriptions. So I

00:07:40--> 00:07:43

so we want it today look at the description of the process,

00:07:44--> 00:07:56

as given by Omar but other companions also have given descriptions. Mostly we're going to focus with this one because it fits in the in the line of our story on the way to Medina. And just a few important things about

00:07:57--> 00:08:06

looks and why it's important. Danny, first of all, when you know what someone looks like, it also helps you to love them more or appreciate them more true.

00:08:08--> 00:08:17

Yes, I think everybody knows that right? If a young man is feminism we found you a girl to marry was his first question. What does she look like?

00:08:18--> 00:08:32

Yeah, and also from the add on the process all the components to look at her perhaps that would cause and the love between the two of you. So knowing what someone looks like helps you love the individual helps you love them more.

00:08:34--> 00:08:57

And the other benefits as well. We said this the last time we said that when you know what the prophet sallallahu said it looks like it helps you identify and if in a dream you see in a bizarre Salaam, you can know for sure if you saw him or not. I think I told you in the newspapers in one Muslim country, they said that they wrote it and someone saw the Post said I'm in a dream and he's wearing a suit and a tie. And he had absolutely no beard and he was shaving

00:08:58--> 00:09:41

by so the profits are seldom explained that the shaytan cannot come take the form of the porcelain and come to you in your dream. But he can come to you looking like anybody else. He can come looking like john travolta and say hey, I'm the Prophet I said he trick you can come look like anybody. For how do you know if you saw the process lm or not? From the description of the person that you saw in the dream. And if you saw Selim said my Ronnie feminine sakata Ronnie, Ronnie, yeah, whoever sees me in his in his dream, he has actually seen me the initiate on letter method to be fairly the shaytaan cannot take my form or my my appearance and my look. So the tion can't look like the rasa lemon. He

00:09:41--> 00:09:50

can come to you in the form of any other person and trick you and say I am the Prophet plus Allah. So now how do you know if he's tricking you or not? And this is a measure that was used by a bus.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

We will not have dogs if not buffalo. I'm on Homer. He's a companion and a scholar and movers sit amongst the companions

00:10:00--> 00:10:46

So one of the tub in his name was yazeed. And fantasy is Eagle fantasy. He was one of the the Thai Bane. And he tells him not best that I saw the prophets, I send them in a dream. So it nobis he didn't just accept it like that. He said, describe the man that you saw, describe him to me. So as you can see, he said, I saw a man who was not too tall. He was not too short, he was white, and in conjunction with a little bit of a tan Yani, he's not very pale white. And he's not a dark person, white with a little bit of a tan. And he had thick eyelashes, he had a round and very handsome face, he had a big beard, and in the description was it covered his neck, and upper covered meaning you

00:10:46--> 00:11:08

couldn't see his neck and his upper chest, and he had a great smile. So if nobis was pleased with this description, and he was sure that yes, you saw the profits, I said, Love, he thought so he told him Allah He is eat, that if you had seen the film, in reality, you would not be able to add anything to what you just said. And that's it. That was exactly how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was.

00:11:13--> 00:11:15

Also from the other benefits

00:11:16--> 00:11:24

of knowing the description of the processor, lemon, or hearing him described is that in the end, you will see a description of a human being,

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

be it

00:11:28--> 00:11:43

a beautiful and a handsome human being in a complete human being. But in the end, you're still hearing a description of a human being, because you know, many different groups say things like the processor lamb was created from light, you know, and some even go further than that. They say he was created from the light of Allah.

00:11:44--> 00:11:57

And so and then the universe was created from the light of Mohammed sauce and exaggerating, but he wasn't like he was a he was a human being of flesh and blood, and so on and so forth. So this from the benefit of hearing the description

00:11:58--> 00:12:00

of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:12:01--> 00:12:02

so

00:12:06--> 00:12:22

so when Obama asked Omar, where did you get this milk? She said, Well, law he in Houma, rabina Raja Mubarak, he said, well, like a blessing man, passed by us she doesn't know what's the Prophet. She doesn't know anything. She just knows. This man was bless it. He passed by meaning he came by this area.

00:12:24--> 00:12:35

minha hiqa lipu kona Carlos v. Yo. mabbott. So he said describe him to me your own map but she said then now she starts with her description.

00:12:37--> 00:12:43

She said, and now I'm going to give you the the the description. And

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

it's like very, what's the wording and

00:12:48--> 00:12:56

there's sometimes you'll find multiple ways of explaining each one of the descriptions and inshallah we're gonna go through most of them.

00:12:57--> 00:13:03

But she says there are eight radula, va hero ba, ba, ba Ba, I saw a man

00:13:04--> 00:13:15

with, like, who was very handsome, all right, or even in a sense in a more figurative way, like very luminous and bright face very luminous like that.

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

oblige and watch any

00:13:22--> 00:14:04

type. So he was like, very handsome or luminous with with a good face. And, and I'm gonna ask for example below and even though he stood with the porcelain for two years, he said, I never was able to really, basically like satiate myself from looking at the problem. And I never looked at him enough, you know? And the description was that and he was so handsome that you wanted to look more, but he had so much hate when people had so much respect for him that they couldn't look at him too much. Yeah, and the other respect you lower your gaze from him, but you still want to look at him some more because he was so handsome sort of setting up and that's why you have these statements

00:14:04--> 00:14:07

like I said, I never got to look at him enough. You know

00:14:09--> 00:14:25

how Shannon Hulk Jani. He has not hold up here but Hulk she's describing him physically not his manners. She said has a little Hulk Yeah. And he he had a hand handsome disposition or he looks good overall. right he looks good overall

00:14:27--> 00:14:43

because you know someone could not looking at me someone might be very handsome for example, but you know, his body will not be on he will have a gutter of something and whatever it is, yeah. But she's saying that he's a handsome disposition or overall and all over all around, he looks good.

00:14:46--> 00:14:49

Lamb to a blue fudge, la Yanni.

00:14:51--> 00:15:00

He doesn't have a big stomach basically, is what I mean doesn't have a big protruding stomach. That's all she meant. And so then he's not flooded by a big stomach in front of him.

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

like that then

00:15:04--> 00:15:36

Welcome to zerby he follow me in which means then that his head is neither too big nor too small as much as you look at people you find there's something here there yeah so he's she's saying that his head isn't too big and it's not too small either and then Cassini moon was seen so it means that he's very well proportioned everything is well proportioned and he had size to shoulder size to arm size to shoulder width to everything just very well proportioned. Let's see him one was seen

00:15:37--> 00:15:53

i na he dodge Yanni and this is their two explanations here if he I know he died, it means his eyes one meaning is that his eyes are wide. Okay, so as wide eyes not be the eyes wide, or the other explanation is that

00:15:56--> 00:15:57

is there any There is

00:16:01--> 00:16:08

one other explanation also is that there's almost there's as if he has gone around his eyes. Okay, you know

00:16:09--> 00:16:10

what do you call God?

00:16:12--> 00:16:40

No. Yeah, I know that for the woman to call mascara right? I don't know what they call for men know him that stuff. Huh? dolla dolla. Anyone from our attorney here? Huh? That's the black stuff you put in your eyes. eyeliner eyeliner. Yeah. I see. I see our makeup knowledge is very weak in the Roma eyeliner. Yeah. For Annika No. is if he has eyeliner. Yeah. But it's natural. Not that he has it but as if he has it.

00:16:44--> 00:17:25

Wolfie pipe. So we said find a Dodge. Wolfie shefa he walked. Yeah, and he was the iPhone 30 he was Yeah, and he and his eyelashes are long has very long eyelashes, and unnaturally long like that. Now, some of these descriptions you will need if you pay attention, you will start to notice them in certain people. Yeah. And sometimes you hear a description and you can't see how is that handsome? But somehow then you will see someone and you see how handsome that was? And is that it is young and sometimes you'll hear description that porcelain his teeth. They were they were all they weren't all linked. They were like you could see separations between them. He might think well imagine that you

00:17:25--> 00:17:48

might imagine them all separated and doesn't sound very handsome right? But then somehow you meet someone who has his didn't look like that and they look very nice. And this is what I'm speaking from personal experience. couldn't imagine it right then one day so someone says Ah, that's just like the headache description is didn't look very nice. So like when Eliza describes a thorough lane right? Now you know they're gonna be pretty

00:17:49--> 00:17:56

right? But sometimes you hear that you can see the bone marrow inside their flesh. That's a little weird. But don't worry.

00:17:57--> 00:17:58

You know it's gonna be alright.

00:17:59--> 00:18:01

okay for

00:18:03--> 00:18:36

now, so that was the description right so with the as Fattah he was fit and his eyelashes are long. Then in another narration, she also says a lot of our means that the the pupil is very dark in in black are the iris really the iris if his eyes very dark and black and the white of the eye is very White and bright. And some people you see the the white of the eye veins and red and some people yellow, but very white and very black. So a nice looking eyes like that. Or a cannon.

00:18:37--> 00:19:03

I have a very good contrast I sent a can here now this is now this is the addition these two words of our we said the contrast of black and white on the eyes, a candle which means that as if he has a natural looking color on what he sold to he son fun. Yeah, and he and his voice there's fun fun here. It's like when someone has light Husky nests or rasp Enos in the voice Yeah.

00:19:05--> 00:19:32

What we think of today as a good voice someone who's a good announcer and ladies and gents, that guy. He has usually noticed that person has a slight rasp Enos or Husky Enos in the voice Yeah, yeah, and then a wee bit audibly they so baja is actually boo Ha, ha. So baja is like this. So anyways, if you want to understand what I'm trying to say, anytime you hear an announcer and he's got a good deep voice and there's a little bit of a

00:19:34--> 00:19:53

hoarseness to his voice but little that's that's the description. Yeah, so a good voice This is she's even describing his voice. Alessandra. Wolfie Salta, he said so there's slight rasp Enos or huskins. In the voice or fi ohnaka he Sapa Yanni and his neck is long. He had a long neck

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

and I don't win with your imagination. Don't go overboard. Always try to

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

Imagine something decent can cause some people, there's no neck, you just see them walking around into some people, you can just see the neck. And now, if I'm describing something of the puzzle seldom, and you have the opposite description doesn't mean you're not everyone. Everyone's different, right? And there's more than one way to be attractive, right? So if you don't have a long neck, don't think you're not attractive, then there's more than one way to be attractive. But if you're unhappy here, SATA, SATA, SATA, SATA, SATA, SATA.

00:20:31--> 00:20:46

wolfi. Here to he katha, and in his in his beard is dense, the thick beard. So not like for example, any beard that you would see in the Far East, not very thick, but long. But this is a thick beard.

00:20:49--> 00:20:52

As a Jew, a crown as edge Eonni.

00:20:54--> 00:21:15

He has a curve in his eyebrows, a natural curve. So it's not straight IRA, a little bit of a curve, and his eyebrow, as a Jew upon UCLan means the eyebrows meet. Yeah. Now there's some say now here because the only song for half, half an hour or at the most.

00:21:16--> 00:21:40

Many other companions of the president described him as lazy, but not he doesn't have what they call now unibrow and connected eyebrow, they said that he didn't have a connected eyebrow. But he had a vein here that if he was angered it swelled up the vein and it made it look as if he had connected eyebrows. Now, they said that this vein, of course can swell if you do something else such as

00:21:42--> 00:22:00

milk, a goat, right? So it's possible this is an explanation and there's no reason to get upset over too many details. And but it's possible as opposed to them was milking the goat the vein came out because you're looking down with your veins swell up. So she thought the problem had the connected eyebrow. But

00:22:01--> 00:22:34

But again, this is the other thing like that this description we gave earlier that sometimes you can imagine it Yeah. And you think that it's thick hair here. But But sometimes you find people who are very handsome and they have very light hair between the two eyebrows. And and they look very nice, even though someone described them to you think Oh, that looks strange. When you see him It looks very handsome. But either way on the amended component said that Lisa currently does not have connected eyebrows or unibrow. So as a Jew, a chronic curved eyebrows, his eyebrows meet.

00:22:36--> 00:22:43

In some other family HillWalker. When the person limb, if he remains quiet, if he doesn't speak, then

00:22:45--> 00:23:25

an aura of respect surrounds him, or he seems very composed. And now as I describe certain things, try to think of these characteristics of some people you've seen in your life. Some people who see them without opening their mouth, they're just they have this aura of respect around them. They look very dignified, very composed. And they're just quiet. They didn't say anything to impress you. They didn't use big fancy words or concepts or terminology. Just looking at them like that. You see that? They're very respectful kid and composed, right? So in some car, but this is not a complete description now. Because some people you see them, they look like that. And then they open their

00:23:25--> 00:23:29

mouth. You're like, I wish you didn't open your mouth. Some people don't like that, right.

00:23:30--> 00:23:39

And it could be anything any. It could be a voice that doesn't match. It could be something ridiculous. Remember the story, I think I've told this before. So hanifa

00:23:40--> 00:24:11

Mr. Lowe, and managed to come this man had this look, they wanted us to respect him. He said he would get tired from sitting for a long time. So he would stretch out his legs. But then when this man would come in the locker, they would respect him put his legs in. So one day every time he and he's respecting him the guy looks respectful as when it looks smart. So when the man came to assemble honey for him Allah question, he said, when do we fast? So the mom said when the sun from the time the sun goes up until it goes down? So the men said what if the sun doesn't come up?

00:24:12--> 00:24:14

So behind if I just put his legs on?

00:24:15--> 00:24:16

Kind of a question is that

00:24:17--> 00:24:39

for for No, we're not talking about that. We're talking about someone who will just pull you from one angle, but then he opens his module, it's all gone. Now, she said in a in some other file. Or if he's quiet, respect and composed. We're into canum sama who Allahu Akbar, and if he speaks then

00:24:40--> 00:24:40

then

00:24:41--> 00:24:59

and even more so you're taking Bye bye. And having all of this man if he speaks is even more respect that you get from him more composed he is and and that's it posted him had this quality and that's why one time a man came to meet the process alum

00:25:00--> 00:25:18

He was shaking. He was afraid. Because you see someone of this description, so he was afraid so the problem tells him how when I like it's like relax, become now but not Not only that, but the problem now is making him even more calm by saying something very humbling about himself. He tells him how when I look for in

00:25:19--> 00:25:48

has to be Malick I'm not a king, in mnemonic number a tin can a cool Elko deed a deed be maca. So he's mentioned something very humbly says relax, calm down. I'm not a king. I'm the son of a woman who used to eat a deed in Mecca, Kadena is very low quality meat, very poor quality, only poor person would eat this type of meat. So the person humbled himself like that to show the man could relax because the President had this presence. Yeah.

00:25:50--> 00:25:52

So if he speaks that happens as well.

00:25:54--> 00:26:21

Yeah, so admin, admin and nurse, the most handsome of people from afar. And from a distance you can tell this is a handsome individual. And a good body good proportion, good. Standing in a good way looking handsome from from afar, but sometimes some people also every description, she gives the opposite of it. And the opposite is good as well. Because maybe in your life, you see someone from far over there. It looks well dressed, very handsome. He comes nearby, like what is this?

00:26:22--> 00:26:26

About? I'm exaggerating? Yeah, but I think we become close you like I wish you said

00:26:28--> 00:26:34

you look good. Back there. But this is not the case. And maybes are selling from far the most handsome of people

00:26:36--> 00:26:44

in Korea, and in the most beautiful and the best up close. So we're looking at both sides of the equation.

00:26:45--> 00:26:53

Hello, Amanda, Yanni, column B, column j media and he his speech is beautiful speech in and of itself. Yeah.

00:26:54--> 00:27:29

First alone, learners are well ahead of Yanni. When he speaks his speak so first, you're saying that his speech is very sweet. Now she's describing it. But when he speaks, it's very sufficient and very, like, the right type of amount of speech and the right thing to say. Law has are the learners are often another is like the someone who just answers you yes or no. It's too little man. It's not enough. Yeah. Maybe you've tried to have a conversation with someone like that. Very bad. Whether we have these days or Yes.

00:27:30--> 00:27:44

You tried to do something with Tila Malia had this? No, honey. Come on. I'm trying to have a conversation with you. Yeah. So it's not like that then as well. Heather, Heather, now someone sticks too long. too long. You just some good morning.

00:27:45--> 00:27:59

Yeah, and it just any opportunity just keeps going non stop. So this is so and you know that any too much speech? It bothers people, right? If there's anyone who talks excessively, you want to go and stay away from that person? Right?

00:28:00--> 00:28:38

Right. They usually that's what happened. Last for the long haul. You always have nice things I used to say an Al Qaeda in occultism in hoonah when we're in a concert, I mean, who Qatar is to say that speaking is like medicine, a little of it cures and too much of it kills which is very true. Right? And sometimes you meet people who talk so much you like yes, I just want to die. One time we're on a 12 hour journey. This guy will lie he wouldn't stop I couldn't explain to you how this guy speaks. And he breathes so quickly just so he could not stop speaking

00:28:41--> 00:28:45

just non stop and all of us in the car like this is like nine more hours of this

00:28:46--> 00:28:51

I remember there was another guy tell him Let's stop at the next gas station. I got out of the car into the van immediately

00:28:53--> 00:29:10

he came into the van I got out of the van into the car he came out of the car into the van we drove over for what happens you don't want to be around that puts too much shiny. So when we talk too much bothers you. someone talks too little bothers you as well. But the problem just right just right fosmon nassarawa

00:29:11--> 00:29:11

by

00:29:13--> 00:29:18

now look at this description. Really incredible description. Karna moto moto

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

type has a rotten

00:29:23--> 00:29:32

Wow. She said that kinda moto has no limit. And when he speaks This is a very, very funny very wonderful description here.

00:29:34--> 00:29:36

credible and

00:29:37--> 00:29:59

she's saying that when he speaks it's as if you have like, let's say, like a necklace of pearls, right? Or some loose pearls. And you pour them what's gonna happen? They're gonna pull one after the other. Yeah, so if I have pearls, and I put them like let's say from a narrow place or they're on a string of pearls, necklace of pearls, I break it and I hold it like this straight what's gonna happen? The pearls are gonna fall out

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

onto the let's say the desk, but they're gonna fall out in order right they're not just gonna all fall because they're on a string they're gonna fall out 1234 like that she's seeing the woods come out like that like pearls falling one after the other with perfect with them perfect timing one after the other No. And if you hold a string and you hold upside down like this, you won't get one two

00:30:23--> 00:30:38

then three for the gravity right they just gonna fall in order. So she's what a description and who thinks to describe speech like that. And like a broken string of pearls and one pearls falling right after the other with with them perfect one after the other. So

00:30:39--> 00:30:44

so she basically his words cascade is a better end and nice description.

00:30:49--> 00:30:53

will not talk to him why in a minute, but basically, he is not.

00:30:54--> 00:31:04

And he's not too tall, meaning that we're in the end it becomes almost like an eyesore, or, and even difficult to look at this person because he's so tall. And he at the same time, you will not

00:31:06--> 00:31:11

almost like belittle him because of how short he is. So just the right height.

00:31:12--> 00:31:21

Then she describes him as was known by a novelist named Yanni as a branch between two branches. what she meant here, he a branch that

00:31:22--> 00:31:26

I'm describing him as a branch between two branches obaku. And

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

so

00:31:30--> 00:31:43

for under thelotter, mumbrella Sonam cadonia, then, and then he is the best of the three. So she says she's a he he's a brunch, between two branches come his companions, he's the best of the three

00:31:44--> 00:31:48

in appearance, and in body. Then

00:31:52--> 00:31:55

Then, and he has companions when ahora fucka

00:31:57--> 00:32:01

Jani your phone up and then he has he has companions that surround him.

00:32:03--> 00:32:39

And if he speaks in Carla, and satola Cola, and if he speaks, they listen to what he says. We're in Mr. Thibodeau, Ella Emery and if he commands, they rushed to his command. So if he speaks the oldest and carefully, she saw them interacting for just a few moments, right. But if he speaks, you saw, they listened very carefully. And if he commands something, all of them rush to try to do it and bring the goat do try to go and be the one who is going to obey His command. And that's why I'm gonna be honest with the law. And before he became Muslim, he visited the prophets of Salaam, then he went back to Mecca. And he said to the companions, he and he was a well traveled man. He said,

00:32:40--> 00:33:18

that I have seen the Turkish Lira in His Kingdom, I have seen Caesar in His Kingdom, but I have never seen a man in His Kingdom as Mohammed meaning and figuratively, here, as Mohammed sauce is obeyed. When the king, he's asked the companion to do something, they'll do it. So more so than kisaan. And these people who are obeyed out of fear, and this is the big difference between when someone is obeying someone out of love and respect. And when someone is obeying someone out of fear, when you respect someone out of fear, or you obey them out of fear when they're gone,

00:33:19--> 00:33:24

don't have to do anything, right. You don't have to do anything. This idea

00:33:25--> 00:34:05

for those who are familiar with Machiavelli, right, so this man, Niccolo Machiavelli, he wrote a very dirty book called The prince, in which he puts all the dirty tactics that we see used by politicians and by big businesses today. So he writes a book, advising this a prince how to run his estate, and he's giving him all the dirty tricks to use. So then, in one chapter, he argues, is it better to be feared, or to be loved? And he argues that it's better to be feared than it is to be loved. So you get people to fear you get your soldiers to fear you get the population to fear you. That's better than to be loved. And of course, any.

00:34:07--> 00:34:16

Many we can see many governments, many people they use these tactics right to be feared than loved janja Hosni Mubarak, was he more feared or loved?

00:34:19--> 00:34:40

Yeah, he is he was feared and he had 450,000. And he liked the secret police all over the place dressed in civilian clothing. That's why even in public places in the street, people afraid to say anything against him. Because you never know who is the agent and he'll turn you in and then they pull your eyes out to put you in a bucket of ice and there's all kinds of torture, well, let my visa

00:34:42--> 00:34:44

type or leave Egypt to any other country.

00:34:45--> 00:34:46

Hmm.

00:34:48--> 00:34:49

And you can basically

00:34:50--> 00:34:58

you can just basically put a put all the Muslim countries on a board and just close your eyes and throw a dart at it will apply to it. In

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

fact,

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

For he argued that it's better to be feared than to be loved. And to how long yeah and the the if there's anything that disproves all the dirty tactics of Machiavelli, it's the sort of the process ended up. He was the best leader. And he was obeyed even after death.

00:35:17--> 00:35:21

Now, if you're a bit out of fear, the minute you die, what happens?

00:35:22--> 00:35:36

celebration, who cares? We're gonna obey you, you're dead. You know, Subhan Allah tell you something. Even with animals. This doesn't work. Even with animals. I'll give you example with cats. Yeah, you know, if any of you have cat who has cats in here,

00:35:38--> 00:35:40

one person, just me and Harley here.

00:35:42--> 00:36:15

Alright, so you know with cats, sometimes you get cats, they love to jump on the kitchen counter. So the the old style way you beat that cat, he jumps on the kind of beat a chase around the house. But you know what happens? When you're not there? It's gonna go up on the counter again, I noticed this, we had this cat. And my roommates used to say don't, I don't want the cat in the bedroom. Alright, so every time it comes in the bedroom, we yell at it, the cat runs out. Then I noticed that when I come home, I'm opening the door. And there's no one in the house. When I opened the door, I see the cat running out of the bedroom and pretending it was in the living room.

00:36:17--> 00:36:54

Because it only obeyed out of fear it we didn't train it not to do that. So the same thing with the kitchen counter, you beat the cat. So now it obeys you out of fear. But when you're not there, why should it fear you? Won't you so they say the better way for example, is to pour water on the kitchen counter. You know, cats don't like water. Yeah, not too much water, just a little bit of water, it jumps up on the counter and gets the water now it's gonna start hating going up there. Or they also take tape, you know, like tape, packing tape and put a sticky side up. The cat jumps gets tangled up in the tape, it'll hate ever going up on the counter.

00:36:55--> 00:36:59

So yeah, that's the more cruel one. That's the one I prefer also.

00:37:02--> 00:37:04

So lay and even with animals you know,

00:37:05--> 00:37:23

when you just just out of fear, it doesn't work. And even when it does work with some animals, at some point they hit they get to the breaking point you know, circus animals, they train them to do things they scare them with whips and there's always a day when a bad day when they turn on the trainer right because of this constant

00:37:26--> 00:37:27

for the pro psyllium was not obeyed

00:37:29--> 00:37:41

out of fear he was a bait out of out of love and out of also belief in who he was so low to suddenly and that's why the components as we said even after his death he continued upon what he taught them solo Law Center

00:37:43--> 00:37:44

by

00:37:46--> 00:37:49

type now two more description a few more descriptions here so when

00:37:51--> 00:38:34

and if he commands a rush to his to do to carry out his command my food don't shoot my food Yanni. When you see him, you you feel that you want you welcome him immediately. Whether it means welcome him into your heart or you just want him in your area or in your surrounding but you some people you see them and you want to spend time with them or you want to be able to welcome them you want to be able to do something good for them. Some people are like that and you've all probably met someone or another who's in like that way. So that's my food should yeah and a really strange word and he he said when you see him It's as if he's not alone. Hmm. When you see him It's as if he's not alone. As

00:38:34--> 00:38:47

if he's an entire oma by himself really strong. And when you see him you see it's like this isn't just one person this is an entire oma you know, behind this man so loud, send them my food and my food.

00:38:49--> 00:38:51

Obviously, and he is not

00:38:52--> 00:38:53

where we're here.

00:38:55--> 00:39:32

He's not he's not frowning all the time. He's not frowning all the time. And this is very important that he looks if we can be more conscious of this. Yeah, because a lot of times some of us will just be the default is just to look like this. driving the car like this walking up the elevator. The default for people just to frown all the time. Well, you remind yourself Don't frown all the time. Yeah. And you know the description of the process and and what kind of harsh and Bashan la cola makishima and he was always like, an cheerful, bright in a good mood. And you never see him except that he's smiling, you know, person wouldn't frown unless he's angered for the sake of Allah zoid.

00:39:32--> 00:40:00

Other than that, it has by default, he looks calm, looks in a good mood. The description was when he would enter a room start joking with people in the house, the mood changes everyone suddenly in a good mood, because the person entered the room and some people want to enter the room. Halcyon in the mood goes down, and some people just always frowning and some people and inshallah no one in this room is from that group. They think that to have a mean look on your face is to be a good religion.

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

This person, some people think that so we've got a good beard on your face, good frown and Mashallah, this is a good religious brother is walking around like this, always frowning hard. But this is not how the porcelain was. And that's why she said, Now obviously it wasn't obvious frowning the entire time. It's not how it looked.

00:40:22--> 00:40:25

And, and his speech was, yeah, if he

00:40:27--> 00:40:33

his speech, it was apparent and clear that was coming from a sane and a from a very good mind. This was

00:40:34--> 00:40:40

this was a description of Omar but that she gave of the prophet SAW the loudest in them. And so

00:40:42--> 00:41:21

when she described them like that, so her husband, Obama, but he said, Hi, they will law, his law, HIPAA crush, will let him this is the meaning the component of cooperation, meaning the man that she's looking for. And then he said that if I'm able to join him, and both later on, I will mambas and Omar but they actually both became Muslim, and, and followed, the prophet SAW Selim and some say They even made hedgerow to Medina as well. So this was just from this short visit, she was able to give this description of the process alum, even though she didn't know who he was, but she described to her husband, he recognized that this must be the Prophet sauce and them and then in Hamza lab,

00:41:21--> 00:41:28

both of them later on, joined him, and they became Muslim. So this was a description of the hadith of Omar but

00:41:29--> 00:41:32

sometimes you find scholars they they talk about,

00:41:33--> 00:41:47

like the description of an individual, and how that might lead you to determine Yani not the description, but sometimes when you see someone, you can determine if this is a good person or not. Or if you look at

00:41:49--> 00:42:29

it and it's interesting, though, but there's there's back and forth in this I'll just discuss it with you. There's some scholars that say now, there are some scholars that say, for example, that when you look at the leaders of the old, the deviant groups in Islamic history, you always find deleted to be an ugly guy. You look at the description is ugly, then you look at the description of that might have been humbling. A whiny fan married always had some good looking people. But now there's this rule is this a rule now? Because you had for example, I've never robot For example, He wasn't ever described as a handsome person. And so some other scholars argued that it's perhaps that

00:42:31--> 00:42:52

what what accompanies a description of the individual is the the, the image or the attitude we have towards them. And so when they describe a gentleman or so forth for the Jamia, you won't find him to be that handsome, indescribable, hanifa. And so handsome, tend to describe the leader of this group. And he again the leader of the whole origin, description always be negative, but

00:42:54--> 00:43:17

so and so the balance is that it's not always that the bad guy looks ugly and that it's not Hollywood in Hollywood, the good guy looks good and bad guys and attractive scars and things like that. Abu lahab for example. It sure is true some of the description he was cross eyed and everything but other descriptions are totally his name was Abdullah because he was so handsome. He doesn't have to be ugly just because he's

00:43:19--> 00:43:30

right. He can be Bulava enhancer region can be okay looking guy also. But here's the problem, because it was never really about faces and everything else. So some of the things that

00:43:32--> 00:44:02

I need, but but for sure, yeah. You can imagine that some of the indications to a true prophet of Allah is going from good to good conduct and good conduct to a degree Good, good appearance, for example, a good end. And if for example, you find some, some leaders of deviant groups, they died a very bad end, you know, and that wouldn't be the end of a profit. And who can tell us someone who died a bad and

00:44:05--> 00:44:06

a well how did he die?

00:44:11--> 00:44:12

cholera.

00:44:15--> 00:44:19

Anyway, in the bathroom, the Murtala Mohammed he died face first in the toilet.

00:44:20--> 00:44:38

And if you were, let's say his best follower, and you come find him the toilet like this, what would that tell you? I don't think this is a I think there's a prophet of Allah dying in the toilet like this, you know? So the death was an indication about number of shots halifa

00:44:39--> 00:45:00

number shakalaka. This is a guy who came up with the magical number 19 all the mathematical theories in the Quran. And then he went over every time he exaggerated and exaggerated first, he came up with a number 19 he said this is the miracle of the Quran. If you look at the number of times Allah mentioned this and divided by the times he mentioned that you get the number 19 look at the number of words that were

00:45:00--> 00:45:37

revealed in the first verse there 19 words, if you look at the number of evident 19 1919, then he started to add and add and add and he said, the miracle of the Quran is the number 19. That's the miracle. Then he said the puzzle Selim didn't know the miracle of the number 19. He didn't know the miracle of the Quran, he just recited the miracle I discovered the number 19 then he started to say, some of the Hadith are wrong, and some people listen to him. Then he started to say some are wrong and some people listen to him. Then he said, Listen, I'm a prophet of Allah. Okay, Julian comes to me. And he tells me things and and you have to follow me. And so some people followed him. You can

00:45:37--> 00:45:45

watch his hot tub used to give him a hot tub. He's an American in the States. Yeah, he can watch his hot tub now on YouTube guys in a T shirt.

00:45:46--> 00:46:17

profitable on a T shirt given me at least wear something nice. Yeah. gonna embarrass hold on for, for this guy gets killed in his kitchen, some guy attacked him and killed him there. And some some even think it was his own son that killed him and then escaped, went overseas. So the end of the individual and their conduct a note of things will tell you if they're a genuine prophet of Allah, or not.

00:46:18--> 00:46:47

Rashad halifa to shoplift, the sad thing and he and then even after then he said, there are certain things he gives some prophecies, and all of them were falsified after he died out of them, the opposite happened. And still, until now, there is a Masjid that follows him and believes he is a prophet. And they have until now a website. You some sometimes you're doing searches, you find strange websites, some of them might be his sites, you know, like that. For

00:46:48--> 00:47:25

for the point is he didn't really fit the mold of a prophet any way you looked at it. Yeah, this is the thing we discussed the idea that there is a certain sign to the prophets of Allah. And if you don't fit that, then you most likely you're not a genuine prophet of Allah. Like if someone comes to you and tells you I'm a prophet of Allah, you tell me which angel comes to you? And he says, as I eat, for example, Tom Well, first of all, so we had a second debate only comes to the prophets of Allah. So you should go check who's coming to you. Yeah. For the certain indicators as to what is the genuine Prophet, you know, the story of Yeah, and he basically, also

00:47:26--> 00:47:55

that part of philosophy comes into the conversation also when you you see someone and you just who has Pharaoh, Sunyani, Eros is when you, you look, you can just read the person's character or read who he is just from looking at them. The process of them said that described in the Hadith, the believer has this philosophy. Not everyone has it. But certain people, they can just understand people just from looking at them. You look at someone you can tell this guy's a liar. We know a guy who had so much philosophy, he could even make this in Virginia.

00:47:56--> 00:48:01

He would be driving somewhere and he just suddenly take another road. Yeah, this is the main road, what are you doing?

00:48:02--> 00:48:22

Then you go after a while you see, look at that Road Stand still not moving one inch the cars, absolute blockage in the road. So I just felt it is for us even applied to roads. You'll see a brother said this brother is an agent. And then the brother will admit yesterday forced me to spy on the Muslims to hit excellent for us like that. And

00:48:23--> 00:48:51

we said in English, it's called the study of Rasul is called the physiognomy physiognomies. To study philosophy. I believe that in the West, Allah Allah, and I'm not an expert in the field, but I think in the West, it's a bit too technical. Yeah, I need to tell if the person has noses like this. That means he's like that. If his ears are like that, it means he's like that. The Arab those used to teach for rasa, and that's why I'm a chef here when he was in Yemen for five years, he studied. He studied philosophy as well

00:48:52--> 00:49:31

spent five years and even part of it was studying philosophy. So he could be able to read people and read the character. So maybe I told you the story, but on the way back from Yemen, he was traveling back with a group of scholars. So they stopped at an area and a man came to them and he welcomed them. He said, Where are you staying? So we're gonna stay find the place? No, no, no, you have to stay in my place. So if I'm a chef, he looked at him, and he told the scholars with him, he said, This man, he's very stingy person, not a very reliable, trustworthy person. We shouldn't stay with him. The man insisted, and, and he didn't show any stinginess. He showed a lot of generosity. He

00:49:31--> 00:49:59

insisted said you got to stay in my place. He brought them a tent. He slaughtered something for them at night, cooked dinner. Everybody slept in the morning, brought them slaughtered again. But then food and this and that. And then help them get everything back on their writing animals holidays are about to leave. So I'm a chef. And he said he felt very sad. He spent five years learning this skill. And in the end, he is not good at it. He said the guy's stingy, not trustworthy, and the guys

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

slaughtering animals and being very welcoming bringing them food and fruit and drink kalasa getting on the on their animals the man says so Where are you guys from? They said from so on so area he said that Did you guys know my father? He said no. So what tribe you guys from this from such and such? So do you guys know any You don't know my father know your father know my father? No. Do you know me? No time so why are you eating free I'm killing animals for you and bringing you food and drink pay for this food that I made for you. So the scholars, they said they took out all the money, and they paid him and if I'm a chef, I would have said hamdulillah it wasn't a waste of five years

00:50:40--> 00:50:41

for them

00:50:51--> 00:50:51

who

00:50:53--> 00:50:54

I owe

00:50:58--> 00:50:59

to holla

00:51:00--> 00:51:03

well, Liana I don't have much ferocity I knew what

00:51:04--> 00:51:05

I really mean that Danny.

00:51:07--> 00:51:11

But actually, I just learned something from one of them myself. He said that

00:51:12--> 00:51:38

some people they they, they may not from your physical appearance tell things about you. But the minute you start speaking, the words that you use and why you put this word before that word they understand so much. He said Actually, that's also a form of philosophy. So perhaps some of you are like that. Yeah, you notice that this person put this word in front of that word. And the way he worded this sentence or the way he spoke this and you made me understand a lot of things that's also a form of Eros and so

00:51:40--> 00:51:51

anyways, for some people, they they have this and I know the one of the Messiah that overseas and he says just from the way people sit, he can tell so much about him. This one brothers go to his house.

00:51:52--> 00:52:01

He don't know how to sit you know? Because maybe I sit like this the chef thinks I'm like that I sit like that. He does everyone's uncomfortable in his houses shifting around a lot. Yeah.

00:52:02--> 00:52:04

I was trying to say something else before that.

Yeah, anyway, so like for example, remember I love the the meeting between us, and Salem and cat dub, right? So in Santa Monica w such a liar and everything he did disprove that he was a prophet. He tried to emulate the miracles of an abyssal Salah, and they were reversed on the process. He put his hand on the boy's head and made dawn and all his hair became white except where the person's hands were still black hair there. So then they'll bring a boy whose hair is falling off to Mashallah he'll put his hand he'll say some dye all his hair falls up. They bring him to make for a while to make it busted. So, as opposed to them, the water lift rose until it came to the top of the

00:52:44--> 00:53:06

world. So he tried to emulate it, the water just started disappearing in front of people until it went down into the ground. everything for him was reversed.

This is almost at the at the gates of Medina, he stopped by this group, and they're all armed. And they're all there to capture him. Now you I think there's no suspense here, you know that they didn't capture him, right? But they're all armed and they're all there in the house. They got him.
