Let Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell you when I gold setting from authentic hadith one time Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he visited an hour be a villager for a coma that villager he honored the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meaning honored the guests. When the setting was very much done, rasool Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells that villager, it Tina, next time you come to my place Lavaca number one, the prophets humbleness in going to a villager, masha Allah, Allah, Allah, if we say, this community or other communities above, you know, average or middle class, whatever you want to call it, someone from a lower class city invites you. You

00:00:45--> 00:01:23

don't say no, just come to my place. It's bigger, it's better, it's nicer, sometimes honor that guest and you go to their place, it will make them happy in sha Allah. And may Allah grant you agenda as well. Amira, Bill Alameen so Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes to that villager, he honored him. And then he says, Now you come to my place next time, and this is something we learn from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If someone does good to you, reciprocate, return it back. You know many of our mothers may Allah grant them Gen Niara. They have the habit when they receive a plate from the neighbor with food. They never return the plate empty.

00:01:24--> 00:01:39

Like mom, what do you do this? Just return the plate. We washed it. No, I have to give back Subhanallah This is from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I invite you for lunch one day, next time you invite me for lunch. But what if I cannot do what you did to me?

00:01:40--> 00:02:23

It may happen. We will never be able to pay back our parents, for example. There's nothing you can do. I promise in sha Allah nothing. Except in one case for your dad. If your dad was taken as a hostage, a prisoner of war as a slave and you bought his freedom, that's the only possible you broke even with your dad with your mom impossible. So what do I do? Federal law whoa Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says make dua for that person. Until you feel you are even Subhan Allah. So next time you come over, so that villager indeed I don't know how long day or two or a week eventually he comes and visits the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when that setting was also about to end,

00:02:23--> 00:02:33

you know, the eight or so? Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told that villager and here is the main point of the whole buncha Allah, He tells him sell.

00:02:34--> 00:02:48

Make a wish. Wahaca ask anything. What's your dream? What's your goal? What's your wish? Ask and imagine this opportunity. So this Alharbi thinks and thinks and he's like, I know what I want.

00:02:50--> 00:02:50


00:02:52--> 00:03:12

and I know Sonia Heba Ali, I want a camel or Nora a large camel that is pregnant. And a lot of goat so also my family can milk and that was a very prestigious, very rich thing at that time. There are people of wealth have this, like a very fancy car, fancy house, that's pretty much where he kind of asked for.

00:03:13--> 00:03:41

So also lights of Allahu alayhi wa sallam said anything else. Then he added if I'm not mistaken the angles on the goats, that's exactly what I want. So the little Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is using a teaching moment. And he tells us a harbor about the Allahu and home. I just don't enter Kuno Mithila Josie Benny Salah he were you guys not able to be like that fantastic old lady from the children of Israel.

00:03:42--> 00:04:07

So the Sahaba What did they say? And who is the old lady from the children of Israel. Then he says the story. He said when Musa alayhis salam about three some 1000 years ago, Musa alayhis salam is about to leave Egypt to escape and run for his life along with Benny Israel. In the hundreds of 1000s. They left during the night time for Balu Korea, they lost their way

00:04:08--> 00:04:27

it became so dark they can't see nowhere they don't know where to go. For Allah Musa Musa said Maha that was going on for our own it's a matter of time till he knows Musa is running away with many slain. So we may get captured my heart that what's going on? For Karna Allah whom the scholars of Benny Salah El said,

00:04:28--> 00:04:48

When you suffer Alayhis Salam, that's about 400 years approximately for this moment, when use of Albanian Salam was about to die an academic in the life of an Indian Lai Masaka he took a promise from us. That if you Benny slightly were to ever leave Egypt, take my body with you.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

If you guys ever leave Egypt take my body with you. So the scholars of Venezuela, he knew that but maybe hastiness. They want to run away from for our own whatever the case is.

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

So right when Musa alayhis salam he heard that he said a number of words the grave of use of

00:05:07--> 00:05:17

they said there's only one person that knows from the hundreds of 1000s of Venezuela in one person who is that person, the old lady from Venezuela.

00:05:18--> 00:06:03

Bring it so she comes to Musa Ali Salaam. So Musa listen tell her I want from you to direct us to the grave of us of Ali's Salaam. She said love Allah had the authority any certainly not No, no, no, no, no, it doesn't work like that. I will give you what you want, but you give me what I want. Allahu Akbar. This is speaking to Musa alayhis salam, respectfully. You give me what I want. I will tell you where the grave is that when I saw looking, wanna hook Mookie and what is it that you want? She said my goal and hear the whole story. The Prophet is saying because of this sentence. She tells Musa alayhis salam my goal my wish my dream Morocco to Kafeel Jana to be with you in general Yeah,

00:06:03--> 00:06:04


00:06:05--> 00:06:15

I want to be your neighbor and Jenna could that's the highest you can ever achieve. May Allah make you all neighbors to the prophets in general. That's the elite. There's nothing beyond that. Allah says in the Quran.

00:06:16--> 00:06:47

This is the ones and I'm Allahu La Mina Narrabeen was the dean was Shahada. He was signing him we have so now let rafiqul Allah gives you the four levels, prophets, truthful so the martyrs righteous and they are great companions. So she aim for the highest with Mussolini. Salaam, do fan carry a New Relic. He felt uncomfortable telling her I got you. I will ask Allah for you. He didn't feel comfortable, but why?

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

He didn't feel that she earned it.

00:06:52--> 00:07:19

People give up their lives to attain this level. People don't need their wealth and half of it and all of it to attain this level. People save money to perform Hajj and do this and do that and sacrifice their day and night for this. And because you went to a point of the location of the gray because of this which information you got without much work because of your old age. Now you want to be the neighbor of the Prophet.

00:07:21--> 00:07:31

I'm sure you would love for her to be there he loves but he doesn't feel strong enough to go to Allah Yara be Allah please. Allah this lady. There's not that fuel.

00:07:32--> 00:07:41

For oh hello Illa Musa. So Allah revealed to Musa and out he has sola tell her her dream will come true. Allahu Akbar.

00:07:42--> 00:08:26

Tell her she deserves it. Yeah, Allah, on what basis because of what she has in their heart that Musa does not know only Allah knows. Allah Akbar. There's something in this heart of this lady, which has been manifested in her wish she could have asked for anything. A gold as heavy as a cow. She could have asked to be on the first row to escape away from Pharaoh the least risk involved. She could have asked Musa to ask Allah to prolong her life, all of this you could have, but the true colors of yours and mine shows up in these moments. Her true colors appeared. She has a moment to make an ultimate wish she said your neighbor in Jannah. So Allah says she deserves it. That's her

00:08:26--> 00:08:44

heart speaking Allahu Akbar. So this is a goal setting on our solar lights. Allah Allahu Allah was teaching us. She did everything that she can and that was her capacity. So Musa tells her, Allah gave it to you. You're going to be our neighbor in Jannah in sha Allah. Let me continue the Hadith the way rasool Allah is Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam continued the story

00:08:45--> 00:09:29

when she was given that promise, she told them let me tell you where the grave is at. She walked and the walk behind her and she pointed to an area with water matte weather from rainwater Allah knows best like a lake. She said empty all the water so the emptied all the water. She said furo dig and they dug for what do ya wanna use the body of use of allihies Salam, the hammer Lu hadn't they grabbed the body and they lifted it and now they're walking with it but what happened? Allah gave them light as if it was the day remember they traveled during the night what Allah Allah shine light and Subhan Allah something to appreciate. When you follow the prophets commands, Allah puts light in

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

your way. Allah puts light in your heart in your sight in your hearing everything may Allah put Baraka in our lives don't discredit Musa Musa is a great leader but sometimes the fault is not in the leadership. It's in the followers. Musa was great but don't really matter. They know that they need to bring the grave and dig it but they didn't. Subhanallah So learn this goal setting from a soil lie sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, aim high keep your eyes on the prize which is Jenna. May Allah grant it to all of you

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

See what I said was still a federal law the Welcome to seek Allah's forgiveness he is the most forgiving this wonderful old lady from Venezuela he and showed you and I what high ambitions look like but this is not something 3000 years ago but it's also habit in sha Allah during our time as well. One time Rasul Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam was speaking to the Sahaba explaining the gates of Jannah. So he said there's a gate of Jannah for Salah and there's another gate of Jana about sadaqa charity and people will be called Oh, you who excelled in charity, this gate is for you what an honor. There's another gate those who excelled in Salah and soon and voluntary and so on this

00:10:40--> 00:11:22

gate is for you. And there's another gate called Andre Yan for those who excelled in fasting, what an honor to be called. So at the end of the Hadith Abubaker so do karate Allah Who and we asked sort of so allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he shows you and the Prophet will show you what is it that you should seek what how should your ambitions be? Don't be of those that say if I am protected from Jahannam Allah this is the greatest thing law. If I just enter Jenna, just one foot in general, that's the loss. What better than that law? That's not your attitude. So aboubaker sub this tells rasool Allah is Allah Allah Allah was me Allah so Allah, is it possible for one person to be called

00:11:22--> 00:11:23

from every gate?

00:11:25--> 00:11:38

Yeah, Buddha Come here. Come here. Come here. Come here, every gate look his ambition. The Prophet said two things now I'm yes, it's possible to enter and you're one of them.

00:11:40--> 00:11:44

This is how we should be aboubaker so they will not give more than Earth man.

00:11:45--> 00:12:12

We will cause so they will not fight better than caught it for the Allah one. Bonus so this may not pray more than even Omar Abdullah have been um, but he will do everything within his capacity to reach his level of excellence. As a result of that Allah reward you for what your heart has and how you manifested. I did everything I can. I reached my own peak, not your peak, not your pick. My pick for you your call from every door. May Allah grant it to all of you and your noble Alameen
