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

Why is it so special because the verses we will discuss

00:00:12--> 00:00:50

I shall not the Allahu Allah says in authentic narration if there's one area one verse the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have hidden from us, it would have been that verse. Why is the story behind it? May Allah grant you a nice success to me? And may Allah allow me to present it well and allow you to understand it well and allow both of us to apply well, and you're about alanine. So you guys ready inshallah? Bismillah Bismillah I want to like to start with a question. Feel free to help me out and I mentioned every session when you guys answer you actually helped me Like genuinely you helped me it's like a fundraiser by ask for answers.

And you would even take their advice, though, it may not make so much sense to you. Are there anyone like that in your life?

00:01:11--> 00:01:14

00:01:23--> 00:01:44

Russia I love me. I love this. Yeah, I want to be his friend now that you said that right. Excellent sisters, anyone in mind? They advise you something like I don't see how is it going to be successful? And you don't even want to change or alter it but you can you trust him? What do you have many of your neighbor who is it? Now sha Allah may Allah bless them say I mean Excellent. Excellent, Raisa.

00:01:45--> 00:01:53

Oh my goodness, this guy's dangerous. Is it magic Muhammad? I don't know about trust this guy. I gotta be honest with you man or even trusted myself.

00:01:54--> 00:01:55

Excellent. Last one sisters. Go ahead.

00:01:57--> 00:01:57

Yes.

00:01:59--> 00:02:05

Your sister monad Masha Allah may Allah is she here was okay Selim ERSA Salam.

00:02:06--> 00:02:44

Take care of your mom, Masha. Allah says trust your mom, she tells you wear a jacket outside like Mama's not cold that nowhere it when she ends up being right. It's cold, right? Even though it's 75 degrees, but Subhanallah because mom said it's cold, it becomes cold just for you. Right? Subhanallah, right. I have people like that in my life. I have another pilot. The pilot comes during times of scattered here, has not yet shipped test pilot. He sets up things and he just bounces so hard. It tells me let's do a weekly lecture on the Sunday in Ramadan. I'm like you're crazy. My genome, right? Nicely is like let's try it and like I don't know how to three to 5pm Two hours?

00:02:44--> 00:03:21

Well, I don't know if I will show up. I don't know if how I will prepare very well. But Subhanallah there's people in life that you see from their experience, that you know what I'll take that we call it leap of faith. I'll trust you have some Yaqeen in your certainty and I'll try and hamdulillah seem successful. May Allah accept. And this is very important. Now I would like to tell you something. If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells you to do something, will we doubt him? And the answer is no. You don't doubt your mom. You don't doubt sister Manal you no doubt your neighbor you Don't doubt me? Right? I don't doubt that as much right now, but we all make mistakes.

00:03:21--> 00:03:39

But how do you feel when Allah tells you to do this? Do we doubt that? Even though it may not make sense to us but we rely on Allah has expertise and Kabir we rely on Allah's knowledge and him. We rely on Allah al Qadir the capable, he knows what he's doing. And above all of that, or with all of that Allah al Hakim, they always fair enough.

00:03:41--> 00:03:53

Zaid, Radi Allahu Anhu is a young man traveling with his mom. While they were traveling, and they were not from Mecca outside of Mecca, Zaid gets kidnapped

00:03:54--> 00:04:11

when Zaid kid gets kidnapped, he went and was sold by these robbers by these thieves kidnappers into SOCOM, there's a mall known as a cow, they trade slaves. So Wednesday it was there. A man by the name of Hakim Hazm.

00:04:12--> 00:04:22

He purchases aid for 400 Dirham. He purchases aid for who? To hardage I've been to Hawaii that

00:04:23--> 00:04:59

when she gets this wonderful man's aid and those ages getting older and older, who eventually comes and proposes to Khadija. The prophets Allah Allah has done this before revelation before Islam before Quran so when the Prophet peace be upon him he proposed two Hadith and she accepted them in marriage. She gifted her husband Mohammed Salah Salem Zaid SUSE now whose responsibilities is passed on to to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the Prophet peace be upon him loved him so much massage and love them. He treated Him very, very

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Very well, years and years have passed by and what's happening in the background. Mom and Dad are searching for who for his aid. The biological parents. decades passed by some say over 20 years are actually in Santa, eventually a group of people, they go to Mecca to perform Hajj. And then they see Zaid and zayde sees them and they recognize one another. So Zaid goes to these people that know his mom and dad. And he says to them, Go tell mom and dad, I mean Maccha after all these years, tell them here. So then the people that came to do Hajj, they went back to their city, and they looked for the actual mum and dad for Zaid, they told them we found Zaid, come check them out. So then the

00:05:43--> 00:06:31

father of zayde, his name is what had ether and cap the brother of Harris so the father and the uncle Dan, they go to Mecca with loads of money, why? Why they have so much money to buy the freedom to buy the freedom of their sons eight. So when they go there, and they arrive to Mecca, they ask a number Hamad, where's Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I want you to emphasize something. This is before any Islam was revealed yet. So then they were pointed in often in Masjid, he's around the sacred area, the prayer area near the Kaaba. So when they went to him, they started with an introduction, the father Hanifa and his brother a cab. And he said, you have to say it. Another

00:06:31--> 00:07:14

comb, oh, leader of the stripe. Yep, no Abdulmutallab, oh, grand son of the Great Leader Abdulmutallab or you people who help the needy and you lift the hardship, all this introduction, what are you looking for? We came here for our son, we came here with all the money that you need to free our sons aid and bring him back to us now. Remember, his aid is an adult is an older man right now. So then the Prophet said, Which son you're talking about is that date? If you want your son, I don't take your money at all. But since he's an adult, bring him over. Well, huh, you give him the option. If you would like to stay with me, I'm willing to take care for him for the rest of my life.

00:07:15--> 00:07:43

If he wants to go back, then you take him back and I don't take a penny. They said data on this, oh, Mohammed, this is beyond fear. Because it's not something simple that you just gave a servant that way. It goes with me. This is cause this is money. This is a commodity, slaves, trade and so on. But he said I want money for that. I love him so much. I treat him very well so much. I don't want no money. You want him back? Just take them at no cost as long as he chooses you. Over what? over me?

00:07:45--> 00:08:30

Who comes Zaid? So Zaid comes he says he has a title How do you know these people? He said yeah, that's my dad. That's my uncle. What a great moment after all these years. So then he has eight, your dad and your uncle came and they would like to take you back. You choose you know me very well. You know your parents, obviously you know your uncle, you choose what you see best. Zaid says the following statement. He says man, the lady Taru alayka hada. Zaid said I would never choose anyone over you Oh Mohamed Salah Sana. No one he says Well, every one I mean, he says You are my dad and you are like my mommy with my parents. I would never choose anyone over that when he said this who

00:08:30--> 00:08:31

reacted

00:08:32--> 00:08:48

the dad he's like white hockey as a lead. What's the matter with your head? You chose slavery over freedom we were about to free you. He said that uncle in Nicaragua, a two men had or Rodri che MA The Lady after

00:08:49--> 00:09:35

my dad, uncle. I've seen stuff from this man Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam that some something that there's no one has ever done. And I will never choose anyone over him. So the Prophet said Salah Salem basically the expression that you see what he decided he chose, and that was a deal that they made. So in the Prophet sallallahu wasallam grabbed the hand of Zaid and he went to El Hijo next to Al kava, and he made an announcement. What was the announcement from now on, he grabbed ze 10 He said From now on Zaid is my son adopted Ibni, Uri Sunni YT. So he inherits from me and I inherit from him. And he grabbed his hand. The hadith says tremendous question about the authenticity of it

00:09:35--> 00:09:40

because it's pre pre revelation and so on. The parents were happy or sad.

00:09:41--> 00:09:42

They were very happy.

00:09:43--> 00:10:00

They were very happy. Because the one who's now sponsoring him, think of it as a college accepting Him. You want to stay in U of M and arbor or you want to go to Harvard. Right? Would you choose this over that like you don't know what I'm getting here. But a better example is with a private Salalah Salem when the parents

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

saw that target and fusuma they felt comfortable that now for sure their son is happy under the care or one of the greatest men of Mecca. We're going to go tell his mom we're going to continue to visit. And no Ze is pretty much what a free man is no longer a slave.

00:10:15--> 00:10:52

Zaid and the Prophet SAW Selim Bond was phenomenal. But before I proceed, how can I pass the fact that he chose to be with Muhammad over his parents? And it's also set up right. What in the world that Zaid? See you guys helped me out? What do you think he saw in the prophet to make him not just stay with him to say that no matter who comes, I will never choose him over the Prophet. You tell me I'm gonna get a citizenship in I don't know in the UK, full ride scholarship to go to this university. I'm paying tuition to stay here but look at the current understanding right? What did he see from him going?

00:10:55--> 00:11:22

Excellent is a clock and his character. His character is what made these Radi Allahu Anhu his name was known Zetas bin Mohammed made it very, very beloved of the people. He was so excellent. And that character is what buys hearts not money. Character usually what buys people's hearts. There's a very famous statement that says Juliet in Nashville or hug him and escena Illa Allah made you in a way God made you in a way that you incline you like those who are kind.

00:11:23--> 00:12:03

Well, Jubilee is a new force and you're also inclined to dislike those who are not kind so part of this is how you are made. Sometimes I'm sure many of you agree you buy items from someone because of their character, even though you sacrifice some of the quality because I trust this man, I trust this woman Yes. Sometimes you go for example, when you even when you sell, you want to sell an item for it. But this customer you give them a discount not because of Allah relative because you're so kind you're so good. Sometimes people players excellent athletes are no longer part of an NFL team. Right? And we know some of the players were not playing top notch wide receivers right brothers and

00:12:03--> 00:12:42

sisters, but they have a no team. Why because of character. So character is your greatest commodity and that's what you should all invest in the character. And no matter what character level you have now, no matter how nice and sweet and charming and adorable you may be and patient and generous and modest and all these things you should never be satisfied with it. Never ever sit down be like you know what, I'm kind enough. You know what I'm too nice lala land No, no such thing. Because the greatest human being the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. God said about him or Nicola Allah. Allah can tell them you have the greatest of character. He has the greatest the review was done by

00:12:42--> 00:13:09

Allah. The review of prophets character is done by God. But you know what the Prophet said? He used to always ask Allah for what for more? What was his dua Oh ALLAH beautify my character. The way you beautify my physical features Allahu Akbar. So if he was not content with his level of truthfulness, patience, meaning he wants to grow and grow and grow, then what about us agreed. So character is key. The other thing here,

00:13:10--> 00:13:52

you realize every time I emphasize this was before revelation before revelation. When revelation came, the greatest of proofs the prophet had that he's a prophet is actually his character. I have them Delete. And now Naveen and br who are Hello canaries are seldom the greatest of proof was his character. He never lied before. So why would he lie now? He never cheated before. So why would he cheat now? So for sure, when he says I'm a prophet of Allah, no one will question his character. That's why I open up all the books of Sierra when he declared that he's a prophet not a single human being said you're a liar not one even those who hated him agreed. What they said was like you're

00:13:52--> 00:14:01

wasting our time you're a loser but no one dare to say what you're a liar. So this something very important how can we relate to this there's a lot that can be said for

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

example, politics right voting comes

00:14:06--> 00:14:08

and don't take this personal just relax, we then

00:14:09--> 00:14:12

breathe out and it can get very controversial even get started yet, right?

00:14:14--> 00:14:20

Someone who has a horrible history, horrible record, and decides to put his name for you to vote for him.

00:14:21--> 00:14:49

I never seen you in the masjid before. I've never seen you anywhere before. And ever seen your health and living being before? Or I've never seen you in Europe or to begin with? Write that vote for me and vote for me. And that's when they start to change based on the goals that they want to achieve. We don't question people's intentions. I'm saying generic stuff. Are you guys with me? Something very important. So also I want to be very honest with youngsters and elders. Sometimes when you when you when you want to change your ways.

00:14:50--> 00:15:00

Be patient. You have been messing up so much. You have lied so much. The day you choose to change and say the truth be patient on your

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

Your parents,

00:15:02--> 00:15:19

because you got them You said that you keep lying. So part of the change is you to be patient in your struggle of you becoming a better person and you need to be understanding. Just like how this world works, you have been taking a loan and you have debt, you have not been paying that debt, what happens to the credit score,

00:15:20--> 00:15:35

credit score drops, next payment you missed, credit score, drops, third payment, credit score drops and drops to get calls, your credit score drops to 504 5300. When you start making a payment, that your score go to 800

00:15:36--> 00:16:10

Oh, man months, it's six months, nine months a year, until you bring back your credit and your worth SubhanAllah. So that's something to keep in mind from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So then they are the Allahu Anhu this wonderful man. Rasool Allah is Allah, Allah, Allah and loved him so so so much, so much so that he used to say, antimony, you are from me, I'm from you were one I love you so much. It needs to express that want there have been call me Allah, you're the one of the most beloved living beings to me. And what do we take from this one?

00:16:12--> 00:16:48

That you don't be shy to express your love and verbalize it. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he told us and He commanded you, right? He said either I had the hadoo Kuba failure anemia. Yeah. He said if you love your brother, you love your sister necessarily blood brother and sister you better love them in a way right? Sometimes, right anyhow. So you see someone that you love and you respect them. So when the private says, go tell them, literally go and tell them, just like the story with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting next to a companion, and a man walked by. So then the man told the prophet, the one sitting next to him said, Yes, really see this man walking? I

00:16:48--> 00:17:28

love this brother. So the Prophet asked him, did you tell him? He's like, No, some people are cringe, like, you know, oh, I'm straight. What do you what do you mean right? Now he says, Did you go tell them? He said liar. So I go and get up. So imagine he left the scene, he left that city setting with a Prophet sallallahu sallam, and to go and tell him in your head book of Allah, I love you for the sake of I just love you and for who you are, there's no business between us. I won't say I love you. So I can propose to your daughter again and say I love you because I need some worldly gains. I just truly love you for the sake of Allah. So then this man replied the reply which you

00:17:28--> 00:17:50

should reply when someone says I love you for the sake of Allah and he tells him what had Becca letting the attorney law may the one who you will love me for love you back? Simple May Allah love you back just to make it simple. So I'm not sure if you guys heard, but I felt very bad Subhanallah this Ramadan was very, very bad. Busted 100 For me, I fell in love with all of you guys.

00:17:52--> 00:18:20

Write notes, brothers, write notes, write notes, is how it works. Okay, so I love you all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. And I hope you guys love me back as well for the sake of Allah. Right? I mean, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam eventually what happened? Years passed by, he became a prophet. And when he became a prophet, whereas zayde still around, right? Even Zaid got married that hamdulillah and Zaid eventually has a child and that child his name is

00:18:21--> 00:18:44

that child's name is Osama sent me Allah bless you Osama Tunis eight. Now quick question. trivia question. Okay. Who were the first people to believe in the Prophet SAW Salem? Let's give me from the woman. The first Khadija Delana correct Khadija they from the men tell me the first three men to believe in the products and give me the first none all in the back.

00:18:45--> 00:19:26

Abubaker he was the first adult to believe in the Prophet SAW Salem give me a second man. Ali is the first young man to believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salatu was Salam number three, but they sent they inheritor or not at that time. Zeytinburnu Muhammad Radi Allahu Anhu see that beautiful, so you can clearly see what this love he had with the Prophet. It continued that love continue to grow. This is amazing. He didn't say oh man, I should have went with my mom and dad, right? No, I will be the first one to believe in you. You're the greatest ever watch. I know you're going to be a prophet perhaps right? I felt that you're so special. So they believed in him. And they told the

00:19:26--> 00:20:00

Allahu Anhu he grew and grew older until the Dawa, that Islam call was being spread all over. But then the Prophets the porters the internal support Khadija, the external support Abu Talib, they both pass away and what happens? The Prophet goes to a five to seek refuge to seek their help and to seek their assistance because his people were what hurting him. And it was narrated that the one who went with the Prophet was who, so a tough man dabba manufa five, who went with him Zaidan harissa and it was narrated that they didn't hide it and when he

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

He went with the Prophets Allah Allahu Allah. He was on top five. He was trying to shield him. Why did the Prophet nuttin go and seek help from a five? Yes, but they became losers. They start stoning him. The ones he sought help are becoming enemies. So they were stoning him who was uncovering the Prophet peace be upon him as a inheritor. We should get Russia, so much so that his head start to bleed trying to protect the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam a bond, unlike any other bonds, may Allah protect us and grant us the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say I mean

00:20:32--> 00:20:46

they have to move to to Medina, the command comes you gotta leave Mecca and go to Medina emigrate, we have to protect your faith, and who emigrates the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and zayde even Mohammed at that time, which is known as David Harris out of the Allah, Ya

00:20:48--> 00:20:48

know,

00:20:50--> 00:20:51

when they come to Medina,

00:20:52--> 00:21:17

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is on a mission to get his adopted son Zaid, a good wife. Fair enough. And the wife the Prophet peace be upon him has in mind now that Prophet Hassan in his 50s right and now he's in Medina, Islam is growing, and he loves it so much. I gotta pick the best woman for his aid. Agreed. So he finds a lady. What's her name?

00:21:18--> 00:22:07

Zainab vintage ash. Her name is Xena. Vintage ash. Zainab Radi Allahu anha. She is the cousin of the Prophet SAW Salem. Her mom is the prophets on omega been to Abdulmutallab? Very, very prestigious family. very honorable family from kurage fantastic. So then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he goes to have Zaid to propose to who Zainab. I have made sure I get the names right right as I'm on here. I'm gonna let her if he can help me last session, may Allah bless you have you sent so Zaid is to get married to Xena. Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not just gonna have hopefully his adopted son marry Zane. He wants to establish something in the entire society. What's

00:22:07--> 00:22:50

that statement in a chroma coma in the light at Koco. He wants to make something very clear to all of Medina and all Muslims in the world and all humanity. The greatest one in this gathering is who the one who is most righteous, the one who's more most God conscious. That's greatness. That's how your net worth is calculated. How do you calculate your net worth today? liabilities, plus debt, you combine that you subtract all that from your assets. That's your net worth correct. But your net worth was Allah subhanaw taala is not that your net worth was ALLAH is based on your piety based on your top one set points that you get points. So brother, can you help us out? What do you mean was

00:22:50--> 00:23:07

stuck? Very briefly. telkwa is when you do what Allah told you to do. And when you stay away from what things Allah told you to stay away from, right? We many of us play games. Okay? We have these points to collect even when your internet gets disconnected on Google what happens?

00:23:08--> 00:23:46

Even google.com turns into a game you jumped over palm trees right or whatever. Right? Even adults, we play our work, okay, there's no internet, there's been pain. Right? And then you get to a point and you actually started competing with yourself, right? So this is taqwa every obligation you're supposed to do it's a point. Every prohibition you stay away from you get a point. So, the more you do, the more points that you have says nothing to do are not directly related to what money Fair enough. So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes to design a vintage wash and many times in many depending on your culture and this is a cultural thing not haram or Halal on how you proceed

00:23:46--> 00:23:51

with the proposals. The way the Prophet there is a he goes to represent to

00:23:52--> 00:24:02

he representing date, so he goes to Zainab Auntie gesture of the Allahu anha. And then he tells her, I would like you to marry my son, Zaid,

00:24:03--> 00:24:08

Zaid ebbetts, he said no way. I would never marry say

00:24:10--> 00:24:26

I'm sorry. And there's no way the prophet is coming to the sister telling our lady to marry my adopted son, my son, he doesn't even say adopted Z. She said Everett Lala. And I'm in Ashrafi correlation. You know me. You know, my family Mohamed salah. He was

00:24:27--> 00:24:40

what do you what do you mean Zaid? I know where they came from. I know he was a slave when I know he's free now. He's a Mola. What's a Mola Mola? Nabhi meaning he's someone who was free or was a slave he became free to his name is the third is Mola

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

but he kept talking to her back and forth. See, that's the issue. Zane has a lot of good qualities, but she had this issue that I don't see myself like I'm from such and such family. You know, what's my last name? To go marry someone from that? That's very difficult. I can't I bathe I've ate. But she does not perhaps recognized

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

that her rejection has nothing to do with money, has nothing to do with physical features, has nothing to do with his skin color has nothing to do with just simply a last name. Simply the tribe that he came from, and sometimes we fall for that. And the Prophet you guys agree with me? The Prophet would never go to Zane and tell her would you marry Zane? Unless he believes it's suitable? Agreed? It is no way and he's making a statement I want the world to know. It's okay for you to marry someone who was a slave and now he's a free man. It's fine. But she refuses and many of us we fall into this the Prophet peace be upon and pay attention to this hadith read inshallah. It's very

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

interesting, like really interesting. So authentic.

00:25:45--> 00:25:54

We know that there's certain babies that spoke certain what? Babies around fasting I know what I'm saying. Some babies did speak.

00:25:55--> 00:26:08

Okay, give me one baby that spoke. Raise your hand. Sara. Accent Jesus the son of Mary recently met him he spoke during the time when he was an infant. Excellent. Baby number two sisters. Good.

00:26:09--> 00:26:19

Excellent Marsh automatic Allah, the child of the hair dresser of Pharaoh's daughter. loveless give me number three

00:26:24--> 00:26:25

what is it?

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

Drainage, drainage as George George well known as Georgia This is an easy an autumn is July 20. This is George so it's a long story in brief there was a accusation that took place that Georgia is a bad guy. Then a baby has come is like no this is the bad guy. True story. Okay, I have a whole blog about it when I check on youtube I think management when they put George I think actually put Georgia you find inshallah I want the fourth baby for this one.

00:26:57--> 00:26:59

You know it's you know, the fourth baby go for it

00:27:03--> 00:27:11

oh, I sent the Asante Maria. Mashallah. As Hubble dude, right, that's a fourth grade. Excellent. Excellent. So now there's five babies.

00:27:13--> 00:27:29

Right Excellent. Mashallah. Harada This was his brooch. There's also a baby that spoke Excellent. His mom was struggling. There's a guy who was you know, he's prosecuting her first her for her faith. And she was about to hesitate and her baby said mom, stay strong.

00:27:30--> 00:27:34

And she did Mashallah. Okay, the fifth baby is the baby you're gonna talk about

00:27:37--> 00:27:38

the boy in the magician?

00:27:40--> 00:27:41

Is there a baby?

00:27:42--> 00:28:01

Okay, because I said it's good. It's good. Troy sent me a love last year right? Actually, he's made a stink. Excellent. Good stuff. May Allah protect you. All right, ready for the baby. Going once any babies in the crowd when I speak. Okay. Also allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said there was a mom. That was breastfeeding her baby.

00:28:02--> 00:28:15

And then there was a very handsome man riding on a horse with very nice clothes. And as he was on the horse, the mom said, Oh Allah make my son become like this man.

00:28:17--> 00:28:39

The Prophet said the baby stop breastfeeding looked at well who in the world she's making supplications about okay, even the Hadith says that the Prophet actually was sucking his finger as to explain the Hadith the story. He was sucking the breastfeed his mom from his mom. Then he left it then he looked at that, man. They said, Oh Allah don't make me like him.

00:28:42--> 00:28:43

What?

00:28:44--> 00:28:45

Oh, God, don't make me like this.

00:28:47--> 00:28:51

evening talking to him, Allah Allah. I think she attempted to speak they never responded.

00:28:52--> 00:29:14

Okay. Then there was a lady who was a slave girl. And she was being beaten up, beaten up, and they were telling her selectees and it Sarathi you stole you committed adultery. You're a loser. You're horrible. So then the mom said while she's breastfeeding, or Allah don't make my child like this woman. He stopped.

00:29:15--> 00:29:16

Oh Allah make me like this woman.

00:29:19--> 00:29:23

What was that? So then the Prophet says, then she started to actually debate with

00:29:25--> 00:29:59

the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam said that she told her baby when I saw that handsome well off men walking by I said, Oh Allah make my son like him. And now you say no, I when I saw that lady who people were accusing her to be a thief to commit adultery and so on. I said, Oh Allah don't make my child like and he said, I allow it to be like her. What are you talking about? So then he responds. He says, As for the man that you wish for me to be like him. He's someone who is a tyrant Jabbar ninja babble. Subhanallah you ask him, you gotta watch what you ask for what you wish for.

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

He said you just a judge based on what you see. He's got He's great. He's amazing. He's smiling and that that's what you're judging based upon. No, it's more than just physical features. It's more than just rocks. No, he's a tyrant. I don't want to be like a tyrant. As for the woman, then she was someone who was accused of stealing and adultery, but she was innocent. And she was saying has to be Allah, one ml Joaquin, and she trusted God and never gave up on God was all the oppression she's facing. She kept holding tight to the rope of God. And I will never wish to be like this man. But I want to be like this woman, Allahu Akbar. See, when we judge things, we have to judge according to

00:30:42--> 00:31:18

whether Allah subhanaw taala wants us to look at it. So be careful. Be concerned about how you go and met sometimes you rush May Allah protect us era will Allah mean and there's many a hadith regarding this. I'll give you one last one. One time the prophets Allah Allahu Allah was sent to adults not be okay. But both are authentic. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting next to a companion, and a man passed by. This is very important. We have to embed this in our minds more than any other generation. Because we are the generation of social media. We are the generation of that we we judge someone based if they have a blue verify, check on their account or not. We judge

00:31:18--> 00:31:38

someone's greatness based on the followers on the way they post their pictures or the way they do their videos. No, no, no, no, no, you got to be very careful. Imagine he's saying this when there's no social media, what about us? So a man passes by? He says Mara, if you have a Rajul so the prophet is asking the companion What do people say about this man? What's his reputation? Like? He says, Oh, this man.

00:31:39--> 00:32:12

This man, if he ever proposed this, look at what the brothers are thinking right? If you ever proposed as he will never be rejected, if he ever allows himself to intercede for someone like if you put his name in a reference and resume, or you got the job. If you put this guy's name on your resume, that's it. You got the job, this man. And if he speaks, everybody listens, no matter how boring he's people listen to the Prophet first. Second, he remains silent, didn't comment. Then another man passed by. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him and what do you guys say about this man? today? Oh, this brother

00:32:13--> 00:32:15

is not backbiting, right?

00:32:16--> 00:32:21

It's not backbiting. So he says, also Allah as for this man, he will never get

00:32:22--> 00:32:43

rejected, he's familiar. He's poor, he's broke. No, and if he ever like wants to hook up someone to you know, help someone, no one will take him serious. If he ever speaks, no one will listen to him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, ALLAH he, the second man is better than had the whole earth be filled with the first net.

00:32:45--> 00:33:25

Now one more time. The second man is more valuable to Allah is better in the sight of Allah, not than the first one that is really better than the first one. That's enough of a shock. Not times. 10? No, he said, had the whole earth be populated with the first individual in comparison to that second one, the second one, outweigh in greatest and the first one Allahu Akbar. This is how things work. May Allah grant us righteousness. So all of this to set up what what the prophet is doing when he goes to Zainab, Zainab marry my son's eight. So then Zainab said no, I don't want to do it. Let's do it. No, ya rasool Allah. No way while they're discussing what happens.

00:33:26--> 00:33:42

revelation comes, can you imagine they're talking, then God sends revelation? What does Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, Allah says, one can mean meaning wala Mina, I'm not sure if I have it here. Forgive me.

00:33:43--> 00:34:24

Until the next one, I'll have a frame. So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, why American ally moved meaning while MENA it is not be fitting for a believing man or a believing woman. Either Allahu wa rasuluh who are on a corner hormones here are two mean, bring him it's not the fitting when Allah and the messenger Prophet of Allah when they tell you to do something, and you have make it like, you know what, let me adjust it. Let me change it. I don't want to actually do it. Can I just postpone it? No, no, no, no, if he tells you Allah says if I tell you and the prophet tells you you need to do it. That's what you have to strive the I need to do exactly what I was told to do. Then

00:34:24--> 00:34:26

Allah says why my

00:34:27--> 00:35:00

Rasulullah cerca del Bala Bala Medina, and if you choose not to and he disobeyed God's commands a just obey the Prophet then you have definitely went on the wrong path. You think that you chose what's better for you? Right? I don't want to wake up for Fudger is not good for my body. I gotta I gotta work I am. No, no, you just ruin your body for now waking up at five Subhan Allah. So never does God choose something for you. Except that's better than whatever you would choose for your own self. And sometimes God makes it easy for you to choose for

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

Do you agree or not? Sometimes you get confused and Allah puts things for you like it hamdulillah it makes my life easy. Like for example, when I wear my clothes, I tried to delegate that I don't want to wait and look at the closet and think that they were this and I go on YouTube. What was my last video? Even clothing can get you to struggle clothing. Imagine that's why I tell people that have you know, uniforms for school? I think it's very easy, right? And I went through uniforms, I was crying now an adult I say it's easy. But I remember I used to cry. I used to literally cry. And I remember one time May Allah forgive us. We had a fire extinguisher in the car. It was a big SUV. And

00:35:36--> 00:35:53

it was a front passenger seat. And then my mom said, you have to wear the uniform. And like mama Will no one said anything day one. You know what I mean? Like you have to wear the uniform. So I remember I was so angry. I was hitting the fire extinguisher hitting the fire extinguisher and then it opened in the car.

00:35:55--> 00:36:12

Then the car stopped and my mom ran out and I ran away in the middle of the road Subhanallah It was a disaster. And we took a cab back home and had to clean the entire car in the filter all that for wearing the uniform. Okay, so oh you will struggle I feel you

00:36:14--> 00:36:55

trust me it's a lot easier for you may Allah protect us set up the parents know what happens on color day every Friday Allah mama check this out. No, it's not right. Anyone that's got Hello tight anyways, let's move on. Let's move on. So here Allah says, if I tell you to do something, do it, otherwise you get in trouble. So then Zayn happened to Josh what happens to her she sees this now as an obligation. This is not normal. Like when the Prophet obligates you to pray, but obligates me to marry someone I don't want. I guess with me, this is not the norm. But you have to believe something definitely is good. Agreed. God will never tell you to do something that is bad for you. So then

00:36:55--> 00:37:35

Zainab Radi Allahu Allah, she tells the Prophet cutter all the Tullio rasool Allah, you see him suitable for me after the verse was revealed. Suitable he said Nam, she said even La Silla, wala rasool Allah, then I will not disobey Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then she followed the actual cell limit. I liked that. She was pleased and she's surrendered. And that's Islam is test limit surrendered. Islam is submitted surrender, some stuff Allah tells you, it's against your desires, right? It's against your wish. But you know, it's the best for you. It happens in school assignment to this do question one, two, and three. No one ever tells the students, a guys

00:37:35--> 00:38:00

I know Miss Michelle Williams, she told us to do question one, two and three, but in my opinion, we'll do four, five and six. It's a lot better for your health. It's a lot easier and you get a better grades. If you do four, five and six. And then you go to Miss Williams, like Miss Williams his assignments and was a simple example. What does miss William will do to you? A nice, big, wide, lengthy zero, all that to avoid the word fat.

00:38:01--> 00:38:39

Right? A big zero. Because I told you I'm the teacher. I went to school. I did my bachelor's I took the certification. I'm a certified teacher by the public schools and my credentials over an assignment that don't worry about about life and about death and about the afterlife. Agreed. So then she said yes, they are also Allah, I will accept that there's something very important for us to note here. Number one, it doesn't always happen that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam forces people to get married to certain people agreed. I'll give an example. One time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this authentic narration. He's speaking to his uncle Abbas. Why is he

00:38:39--> 00:38:49

speaking his uncle? Because he saw a scene that grabbed his attention. There is a guy his name is what movies there's a lady her name is Barry era.

00:38:50--> 00:39:02

So then movie was walking behind that era crying every era will tell that you hate like he cried so much that his beard became worth Wow, why he wants her back.

00:39:03--> 00:39:14

Oh, no, I know. Right? And that's actually the prophesy said and felt literally he actually felt that way. So then he's like, please, whatever you want, I'll do whatever you need come back.

00:39:15--> 00:39:33

Okay, let me tell you quick background understand the story. So desperately, it's okay, hold on my legs like this desperate man up. No. Actually one of the benefits of this hadith, okay, just a benefit. I won't go into depth here. But one of the benefits of this hadith is that the Prophet did not criticize Mohit for how much he loved Vera.

00:39:34--> 00:39:59

So he didn't criticize because he didn't cross the boundaries. Like his love was controlled. But he did cry. They didn't like you know, grab her force or anything like that. He didn't start accusing her of things. Oh, you don't want to be with me? I'll make sure you don't never get married. He never put some magic against me. So he was able to control he was in pain, but the Prophet didn't criticize that. So anyhow, basically, but era and Malik both were slaves. Okay. And that era

00:40:00--> 00:40:30

She was able to free herself so she collect some money. Some people helped out even some say even if she helped her out, she collected money and paid her master to free her. And Islam was very much from promoting what freeing slaves free slaves as much as possible. Even when you do something wrong the way God forgives you, is that you free a slave had you had one. That's how much Islam was promoting that. So in Sharia, if someone and also become I don't know, I went this way, but still it's okay. So if there's two slaves are married and one of them becomes freed.

00:40:31--> 00:41:04

The woman in this case has the option to remain as a wife or choose to be separated. It's actually an option Islam. Fair enough. So that era, she had an option to either stay with movies or to actually leave him That's it. This is allowed. So now when the Prophet saw movies crying like that, the Prophet went to Tibet era that before he went to bed era he thought something just uncle Ibis What did he say? Yeah best. Have you ever seen someone loves someone the way movie was the era.

00:41:06--> 00:41:10

And have you ever seen someone hate someone? The way but era hates me. He

00:41:12--> 00:41:52

said in the Prophet SAW said he went to bed Iran said Yeah, but Iran. Do you think we can work things out? Between you and movie? Anything we can help out? Maybe something is missing? Anything I can do to bring you guys back together? What's the moral of the story what she said? She said Yeah, rasool Allah Moroni. Is this an obligation? Look at that her faith you have to appreciate her greatness when life as much as she hates him. But she told the prophet are you commending me it's just like a command like a religious command. Then Amen. Then I'll go back to him. He said Law No, no, it's not. I'm just trying to try to reconcile that's it. She's like since you're not obligating

00:41:52--> 00:42:15

me, fella hydrator LiFi unbelievable. She said that I don't need him as a cookie. It is what it is. Right. So what's the point? There's a lot of lessons, but the point being he did an enforcer. But in Zaina panela what does this tell you? There is a wisdom behind it. I guess with me, there's a wisdom behind it. So let's proceed. Rasool Allah is Allah Allah Allah Islam say some Allah Azza wa sallam,

00:42:16--> 00:42:26

and this verse test your faith, by the way, I agree. Like sometimes. How religious mi how close am I? How God conscious? Am I? This verse tells you agree or not?

00:42:27--> 00:43:05

I can make up for failure. I'm not into it. Okay, this tells me a lot about you. Right? Yeah. How do you for example, dress tells a lot about you. How do you speak, says a lot about you. God says don't backbite I still backed by this says a lot about you. And that's something to appreciate and put yourself into that check. And that's why the greatest generation or the Sahaba I will mention these two examples and we take a short break. When the Prophet peace be upon him. The revelation came that alcohol is prohibited alcohol or haram. No longer allowed to drink alcohol. Well, how did it how did it take place? One time and a Sydney Malik was pouring alcohol for Fall herald the Allah and some

00:43:05--> 00:43:28

great companions. So a man says Revelation came alcohol is not allowed anymore. Alcohol is haram. Alcohol is prohibited that revelation has come has come fun had told us destroy all the barrels, empty all the barrels with alcohol. He didn't. He didn't say well, my body got used to the alcohol. If I take a couple sips I won't get drunk. So maybe this revelation for those that takes

00:43:29--> 00:44:08

hummus is prohibited prohibited. You see that? Don't try to justify Allah said Stop it Stop it. What made him so great is that they stopped it when the moment they heard the moment even when the region says that the roads of Medina became like rivers of alcohol Subhanallah you have the example one of the amazing example is I live in the thought of no authentic hadith. I never thought about the Allahu Anhu in the Battle of hyper hyper against the hood. Rasul allah sallallahu sallam was a it was a struggle to go beat them. It was a very, very difficult battle. At the beginning. They have a very strong fortress. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said today I will give the banner to

00:44:08--> 00:44:48

someone whom Allah and His Prophet love. Ahmad Allah and he says that was the one time in my life I wanted leadership. One more time, the Prophet said I will give the banner to someone whom Allah and His Prophet love. So I'm gonna like man, I got ready for this. I want this. He never saw leadership. For this one. Someone God loves and the Prophet loves. I want that leadership. But then the Prophet gave it to. He gave it to I live in Abu Tada. Cynthia Ali, here we go. So he told me I didn't pay attention. Cynthia Ali, I want you to go straight to the fortress. Okay, well, that has to fit well as testified don't turn no turn your head. No Right. Nor left. Don't go back straight to that

00:44:48--> 00:44:59

fortress until Allah allows you to conquer it. Ready? He grabbed the banner. He's walking towards the fortress. What happens? Ali has a question. The hadith says I

00:45:00--> 00:45:06

Knee when he asked a question Salah he yelled it out loud. Why? Because there's no one to turn until the prophet the question

00:45:08--> 00:45:22

Zerah for them yatta yatta also Allah, well Allah, the Prophet is there in the back. All prophets of Allah, Allah Oh, how should we I find them just turn and ask that he said, let us know if you don't turn I don't want to turn

00:45:23--> 00:45:34

and someone like him. Concord Hybl Allahu Akbar. You see that greatness upon greatness upon greatness, phenomenal stories out there. But now, there's a wisdom behind it.

00:45:36--> 00:46:03

The prophets, get some inspiration, get some information from Gibreel Ali salaam that will perhaps shake the community. And before that it shook the Prophet SAW Selim. And now he's seen why did God obligate this marriage to go through? What's the reason? What's the inspiration? What is he knowing that he has yet to share? All of that in sha Allah after the break in the last marathon? Zack

00:46:04--> 00:46:08

Miss Mila was what was salam ala Rasulillah ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam.

00:46:09--> 00:46:49

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on behalf of zayde went to ask for the hand of Xena. Eventually it became an obligation as Allah revealed in one of the understandings of the verse and then Zainab accepted what cell limit and she surrendered to Allah's command and she was completely fine and okay with it, and she married Zane. However, the marriage was not working out well. There was a lot of fights, a lot of argumentation. Some narrations suggest that Zainab was not able very much to overcome that sense of pride that she had. I'm from such and such family, and I know where you came from your slave at the end of the day, at one point, she really struggled with that and he

00:46:49--> 00:47:23

really struggled to handle that. So then he went to the prophets of Allah assalam. And he started to complain, Oh, our Prophet of Allah, which is like his dad right as well. I can't do this. So the prophet tells him it took me years eight fear Allah regarding this wife, you have to be conscious of Allah, the patient who am sick, Alec has Oh Jack, hold tighter, try to work things out. Try keep trying. And then they goes away. But then, as they ended in the session, that just the previous session, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam now was getting to know why this whole thing came about.

00:47:25--> 00:47:38

The following points are being shared with them. It's not revelation yet. Sometimes the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam can have like Ilham, like an inspiration, but not an actual revelation of the things that some scholars have said that he received number one,

00:47:40--> 00:47:42

Zaid will eventually divorce is enough.

00:47:43--> 00:48:28

So it's very sad. Number two, Allah is about to send a ruling that changes a cultural practice that is wrong. What's that? cultural practice is treating adopted kids as biological kids. No, you love them, you care for them, you stand on them, everything stays the same love, respect and all that stuff, but they cannot be held at the standard of biological kids. There's a lot of wisdoms behind it. For example, they cannot inherit the way your son and actual daughter inherits. They cannot adopt a child that you have Zaid is an adult, he cannot be around your wife without a hijab. For example, right hijab was not revealed yet. So these things, the laws have to be adjusted as an

00:48:28--> 00:48:55

adopted child and should not be treated as a biological child. So that's new news. Number one is very sad that there'll be divorces eight and Xena. Number two, the prophet is about to get this command, eventually we'll have to tell the people that adoption has to be done in a way that did not biological treatment, which is very difficult. Why? Because many people have done it in Medina, many people have done it in Mecca. And it's very, very difficult. It's not easy to change that. Number three,

00:48:57--> 00:49:01

Allah wants the prophet to be an example of that. What do you mean?

00:49:03--> 00:49:10

If If a man has a son, a biological son who's married to a woman,

00:49:11--> 00:49:17

that woman becomes Muslim to the father in law? Correct? Because it's a biological son.

00:49:18--> 00:49:38

But if it's not a biological, If any man has some young man married to another woman, this woman will always be it's not a Muharram for him, correct. She has to wear the hijab in front of him and so on. So now, Allah is telling the Prophet SAW Salem, when ze divorces Xena I want you to marry sign up.

00:49:40--> 00:50:00

So the prophets Allah wa sallam any it's already difficult to tell the world. It's very difficult to tell the world all your adopted kids, respect them, love them, nothing changes, but there's certain matters that have to be adjusted. They cannot be treated as what was the word biological sons and daughters. So basically, if someone divorce FNS

00:50:00--> 00:50:30

adopted son divorces his wife, that wife is halal for the one who is adopting them to marry. And the Prophet has to be the example for that and this is going to be very tough. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what happens not too long after this zaev comes back, the Prophet knows what Zaid will eventually divorce Xena so they started to complain rasool Allah I can do this yeah Muhammad Oh prophet of Allah it's so difficult what is the prophet tell him? It took Allah fear Allah hold tight your wife

00:50:32--> 00:50:59

right hold tight your wife do whatever is necessary to stay husband and wife. It's very difficult what will happen? So then eventually, what happens is eight could not handle Xena could not she's just too difficult for him to handle. Both have some good qualities Zetas obviously a phenomenal man. But eventually they divorces who? Xena then Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals a verse. This verse is as follows.

00:51:00--> 00:51:43

Allah says, one gyla At a Cabinet accom there's some cultural practices that are about to be shaken, this is like decades of people doing it. So Allah says Allah does not regard your adopted children as your biological children. So now, they cannot inherit you. They cannot be a mom to your daughters as an example for the son. But Can Can someone can an adopted child, for example, or any person can you have in your will, I will see you to give him some of your money when you pass away. Can you do that? And the answer is yes. Not just Yes, it is possible for you to give your adopted child your foster child, or as someone more money than what the actual biological children can inherit.

00:51:44--> 00:52:21

It's possible how because you can give we'll see Yeah, you can, your will, you can give out give up to 1/3 of your wealth to someone 1/3 So let's say the Prophet wants to give 1/3 to his aid and he has like 10 Children, the 10 when they divide amongst them and they will not have the 1/3 you see that? So So Subhanallah something to truly appreciate here. Then the prophets Allah Allah when he said this the next part then you can call you can be FYI come Allah saying don't use Tell me. Oh, I've been adopting him for years. He just like my son. No, he can't say that. No more. How many of us say this here in Dearborn, Michigan in the States? We've been together since we were three years

00:52:21--> 00:52:28

old Baba right. I want to play with her. She wants to play with me. Habib you're 23 Unless the two a silent Yeah.

00:52:29--> 00:52:36

Right. So we're always together. Oh, I'll never marry her ill they had Ill now tomorrow's not ill.

00:52:37--> 00:53:13

Are you with me? So Allah says, leukemia Why come these are things that you say with your tongue? When in reality things change the way Allah created the actual blood brother and actual blood sister Allah minutes in a way that is no that such attraction May Allah protect us era. Right? But you cannot do that when there is an actual adopted child. You have to be very careful. Right? So someone says, You know what I want to be for example, in the car with this person, oh, he's young or she's younger and she's very old to be very careful of Allah subhanaw taala advises you rasool Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam says, Never is a man and a woman alone acceptable. boostered the devil is

00:53:13--> 00:53:52

a third never as a man and a woman alone. So the devil is a third. So I give some advice. Okay, I'm not saying it's haram or halal. But even if you go to the hospital, you go to a room. And then let's say a brother gets his blood pressure checked. A woman comes in a young woman. If my personally I asked the door to stay open, I want the door to be open. That's my preference. Oh, you're weird. No, I'm not leaving. Okay, I'm normal. Okay, how does this all start some advisors who will take the advice as much as they can? Especially especially in Macedonia, if someone that comes as someone, for example, is young, and I remember one time I did that, come on, sometimes it is the lady comes.

00:53:52--> 00:54:07

She's like, No, I'm not doing that. She slammed the door. I'm like, No, I want to open when sometimes need to get so personal, right. I remember I told the person, the nurse she came in I said, if you might just open the door just a little bit. So she's like, there's a lot of sensitive information. I'm like, they can Google me they know everything.

00:54:08--> 00:54:42

Alright, Social Security is $900 You get it? Okay. I get your social security number, where you live and all the good stuff, LLC is named mela protector, Sammy. So the point being is that you have to be very careful that they can call you can be fya calm and look what Allah says very nice. Allah says Allah who your poodle Hutto who is seven, Allah is telling you what's right. And he's guiding you to the right thing. It's painful. It's difficult. Allah knows you've been doing it for the longest time. But I'm telling you what's right for you. And Subhan Allah Subhana Allah. There's an article here. But I took the statement says, According to the American Society of Pediatrics,

00:54:42--> 00:54:59

adoption should not be a secret. That's what they're advising you. Subhanallah adoption should not be a secret. every youngster needs to have an honest understanding of his origin or her origin. adopted children who have not been told, seem to sense that somehow they're different. This nagging intuition

00:55:00--> 00:55:30

can influence their self image and the longer you wait, the harder it will be to discuss it with your child. So Allah doesn't want you to go tell your doctor child 30 years old or 25 and sensing Why do I look different? Why might slightly being treated different? Why when am I when I'm sick? You feel bad, but not the way you feel bad for my sister right? Subhanallah so all these things do truly appreciate me Allah grant us wisdom and strength immutable Allah mean. But what does this mean? What does this mean? What do we call Zaid? So Zaid Bin Mohammed, he's known Zaid, the son of Muhammad. Now the dame changes to what

00:55:32--> 00:56:12

Allah says, are the only evil acts at the end Allah, I know it's a bit technical, but good for us to know. Allah says, call them based on their actual father's name. So now they didn't Mohammed is no longer ze the son of Muhammad. Remember long time ago, he's my son. Even Omar said, we used to always for decades, even our authentic hadith, he said, for decades, we call them Zaid, the son of Muhammad, until this king was reverse. And now he's called Zaid, the son of Haritha. You see that? Isn't it sad? You know how he feels? The Prophet loves them just the same, right? The Prophet loves them so much. So the Prophet is without a doubt, he's in pain for his aid, without a doubt that he's

00:56:12--> 00:56:37

concerned. And now, what happens? So number one, that I mentioned to you, they will divorce happen? Yes. Number two, you got to be aware of how you treat adopted kids versus biological kids are some rules have to be adjusted? I know it's difficult culture. It's like this, this lamptey culture under consideration. Well, Islam is against culture. Which one is it? Islam is with or against culture? Who thinks this with

00:56:38--> 00:57:20

things is against? Who doesn't know? Who has no culture? All right. So culture bros, the culture, right? Islam actually, sometimes that does not just take culture into consideration. Sometimes Islam commands you to take culture as a reference from right and wrong. Wow. Yes, very Islam takes culture very seriously. But there are certain cultural things that Sam says for this one, no, so that will happen next. Allah says oh Jerome, the other amo AXA to end Allah. And now, Zaid understands and the province of Allah Azza and tells Zaid, what Allah sharing with him, and I need to now marry who? Your ex wife.

00:57:22--> 00:58:07

So Zaid, an authentic narration is not just on the same page. Zayn is the one who will do what the Prophet did the you serious. Zaid will be the one that goes to zeyneb and telling her that I'm coming on behalf of Mohammed Salah Salem asking for your hand yeah Sahaba companions now we rip the pictures. We destroy them we burn them right? I hate her right and then you don't get an errand he just shoot at the photo mail protect us right? This dunya that we live in a player Kevin Durant leaves OKC goes to Golden State Warriors they burned his jersey right? Topanga human beings may Allah protect us. But now they are the Allahu Anhu the province as Sam tells them

00:58:08--> 00:58:30

go ahead and talk to Xena on my behalf. So they are the ALLAH and he says I went to Zane up and I saw her and she was cooking like doing something with the dough. And he said when I saw her, Pile them at it like I remember the prophets proposing terms I avoided looking Subhanallah then he told her I'm coming on behalf of the Prophet he's asking you for your hand

00:58:31--> 00:58:32

was that not worth it?

00:58:34--> 00:58:37

Right there's wisdom behind everything. But what did she say? Who knows?

00:58:39--> 00:58:43

Sisters and then comes to propose to you what do you usually do?

00:58:46--> 00:59:27

Brother that's pretty personal. You have praised ha That's what you do. Right you ask God for help. Are we relaxed? So that you pray? Let me do this to Hara and just advice for the sisters. If a guy comes to like him for whatever reason, just blame it on us to help them I prayed I don't feel comfortable I don't know it's Tara I don't know. Just blame on us to her. Okay. So she actually told the Zadar the Alliance she said yeah as aid let me until I consult with God I want to do is taharah she did this the hara she prayed to rock out to Allah subhanaw taala. Then Allah revealed the response. XO watch NACA. Allah revealed that magical license. I know it's it's so it's just so

00:59:27--> 00:59:33

unique is unbelievable. Allah revealed. Mohammed and Zeynep are now husband and wife.

00:59:34--> 00:59:40

Where are the witnesses? No needs? Where's her father? His or her family? Her guardian? No need? Who got the married?

00:59:41--> 00:59:42

Allah.

00:59:43--> 00:59:59

Allahu Akbar. So the Prophet in the Hadith authentic. He walked into Zainab with no one no need for, you know, her father being involved or anything like this. Allah got us married. And don't think this is bad, because they never took a home run with this

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

For the rest of the wives, she's to tell them authentic. She's like all of you women are a shadow Donna. Right, and the others and others, Dana, all of themselves, all of them. All of you guys got married because your dad came and your mom got involved. But you know who got me married Allah.

01:00:18--> 01:00:54

I just said she used to brag so much about this. Well, I have to she has her right. Yeah. And so Pamela, but see, that's when you submit to Allah subhanho wa taala. She did not see the wisdom I don't like because I don't I don't see a suitable. I don't see no compatibility. But she obeyed. Allah should obey the Prophet of Allah, and she got the greatest thing she can imagine. I'll tell you something. I don't think she actually imagined that you agree with me? It's beyond your imagination, that she's now saying that vintage action is what Mother of the Believers will mean Subhanallah have no surrendering to Allah subhanaw taala? Yes, Zaid struggled, but there's something

01:00:54--> 01:01:34

profound I'll share with you about Zaid, Zaid got a lot of good stuff too already. Allah subhana wa Tada says, What is the Kuru lady? Allahu Allahu, and I'm telling No, this is the verse explaining what I just said reading. Bismillah. Allah says, When you told Ya Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when you told the one who Allah has blessed was that man. Zaid, What did Allah bless his aid with Islam? Allah says, When you tell the one whom I have blessed, meaning say, I blessed him with what meaning Islam? So just by this, what does it tell you about his aid? Just this just this is what helped me help me deciding what does it tell you about Zaid helped me

01:01:35--> 01:01:37

accent he's a good Muslim.

01:01:38--> 01:02:16

Allah says I blessed him. So if Allah says a good Muslim, no one in their world will open their mouth against them. So isn't that a man's business or a nice status? Allahu Akbar. So demon start yet then Allah says one I'm telling you, Hamlet also favored him are also blessed him in terms of freeing him when he was a slave, you took care of him, you were next to him, you will be very beloved to him and so on so forth. Then Allah says, I'm sick i Lakers Oh Jack, what tequila you used to tell date? Allah says you used to tell us aid. Stay with your wife. Okay, Fear God, do whatever is necessary to fix his marriage. I used to say that and Allah quotes exactly what the Prophet used

01:02:16--> 01:02:54

to say. Because the Prophet is what said the next part. What took 15 fcwc Mala who moved deep and you were young Muhammad. Allah is rebuking him and he sort of set up it's very firm. This is the area this is the area that he has said in authentic hadith if there's one verse the prophet would have not shared with the world is this one? Because how much Allah was what rebuking the Prophet Why were you concerned? Why were you nervous? Why were you that why did you hide in your heart like that? And you know, Allah is gonna make it happen. What took 15 fcwc bala moody you know for a fact you're concealing what Allah will what expose eventually? Then Allah subhanho wa Taala What is he

01:02:54--> 01:03:14

saying? What Dasha NASWA Allahu Hacohen Tasha and you concerned about what people will say when you're supposed to be very concerned about what God will say Allah very powerful for all of us agreed many times in life whether in a wedding whether in a school, whether at a job, what happens I get in trouble. Telephone sent.

01:03:17--> 01:03:18

Excellent. So then

01:03:20--> 01:03:24

okay, let me address it after the show. So where was I? Was the marriage question so it threw me off

01:03:26--> 01:03:58

there is this the hara honey rockhard. What should I say? All that stuff, right? Okay, what actually NASA Allah Hacohen Tasha and US concern about what people will say when it's supposed to be concerned about what God will see. And it happens at work. It happens in marriages and weddings, how many times I remember this one one man, he was having his wedding and he did it in a way that is not pleasing to Allah like clearly it almost non negotiable. So why you're doing this? Why are you doing that? Is everybody's nagging and trying to please people just a few hours? Hello, that's not right. You're concerned what people will say about you know, you should be concerned what Allah will say

01:03:58--> 01:04:16

about you, and I want to give you a rule of thumb out through a hadith and inshallah you and I will remember it for the rest of our lives. Ready, ready, Inshallah, listen to this and please take it right in your heart in sha Allah. Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, if you happen to come across an action, that if you were to do

01:04:17--> 01:04:52

would be pleasing to God, but at the expense of displeasing people, sometimes you come in life, we come to an intersection in life, that I have to make a decision. This decision will make God happy, that will make the people angry. May Allah make it easy for us. I hope we don't go through that. But sometimes we have to write it happens at work. When I was at work. I remember we had this whole happy hour thing with alcohol. So they all want to go to our bar, come along with us. So I say no, what is difficult by saying no, I can't make it. Right. When you get a promotion, God knows best. Will he be treated the same? God knows best. But you come to a point we have to make a decision

01:04:52--> 01:04:59

please the people but displease Allah or vice versa. So look what the Prophet said if you choose to please Allah

01:05:00--> 01:05:25

Ah, and it happens that you displease the people, two things happen. Number one, Allah will be pleased by you, Allah, that's enough. Agreed. This is enough of a blessing and a fruit that you obey Allah, He will be pleased by you then he said, and eventually the people that they were displeased, they will eventually be pleased by you, Allahu Akbar. I remember this one example. Let's go back to what he says about marriage now.

01:05:26--> 01:06:03

There was a, there was a family, they were having their wedding, and they want to go all out, but they said, You know what, we're gonna separate it. Let the woman have fun, do their thing, do their dancing, the guys do their thing, do their dancing, whatever, besides talking about music now. Okay. So then one uncle, I remember this one uncle said, I don't want even show up to this wedding. He was so disappointed in his niece. I don't want to be there. And then eventually, this man, he came to the wedding. And he told me personally, this was one of the best weddings I've ever went to. So what's it what's the moral of the story? The hadith, he was very upset. Allah and sha Allah is

01:06:03--> 01:06:42

happy. The one who was upset, eventually became happy. You see that? Then the other half of the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and whoever does an action, that you know Allah is not happy, but you will make people happy you think? Then Allah will be angry at you and Allah, that's enough of a punishment agreed? Not just that, and Allah will cause the people you try to please they themselves will not be happy. And you lost to dunya and akhira. May Allah protect us. Right? Subhan Allah sometimes what happens? May Allah make it easy for all of us. In essence, we're picking up with this example. A sister who wears modest clothing wears her hijab and everything.

01:06:42--> 01:07:01

Some cultures, what do they do see the culture that clashes she takes off her scarf in the wedding correct? In front of men. Why you do that sister is just one night this is my culture, that this culture cannot be accepted. So what happens that same woman who did this to cover hijab to please the crowd, they will be the first ones to criticize her up do

01:07:03--> 01:07:12

right and her billiards room shout of Asian noise here highlights rotten look at the roots. I can see the roots. How do you know this brother? Don't worry about it.

01:07:13--> 01:07:42

Because I had long hair one day from the law. Right? No, my sister is a hairstylist. No, may Allah protect us. So my point being the first one he tried to please they end up being somehow the first ones to criticize you. So now Allah subhana wa Tada says, You should be don't be concerned about people be concerned about Allah subhanho wa taala. Then Allah says the story. Philip Mercado, they don't mean how Ouattara when Zaid totally lost interest in his wife at that time Xena. What do you notice here?

01:07:43--> 01:07:44

The first the first three words

01:07:45--> 01:07:47

here first three words but he knows

01:07:48--> 01:07:52

that you take our time because that's to give Zaid some love. What do you notice

01:07:53--> 01:07:54

that

01:07:55--> 01:08:00

So Wednesday so what's special? Okay, brother making it weird, right? What's special in many?

01:08:02--> 01:08:39

Zaid is the only companion mentioned by name in the Quran. If you're no longer say the son of Mohammed know that your name will be stabbed in the Quran to the Day of Judgment. Allahu Akbar. Now even Abu Bakr Siddiq is in the Quran. Now Ali is in the Quran. Now Omar is in the Quran, not us man is in the Quran. May Allah be pleased by all of them. The only Sahaba is eight. Can you imagine you get good deeds for St. Jude aids, AIDS, AIDS, AIDS, AIDS aids. Don't do that. Don't do that. But that's not right. But you may imagine that you mentioned his name, you get the deeds Allahu Akbar. So yes, you no longer say the son of Muhammad because of the adoption change or the rules of

01:08:39--> 01:09:18

changing your state in the Hadith. But your name will be in the Quran till the Day of Judgment, what's the honor? What value and this an example of Zaid submitting to Allah subhanaw taala and he himself proposing on behalf of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam? Then let me go quickly on through the verses. Allah says, What Alonso which NACA we have caused you and Mohamed to marry or why does Allah tell you the wisdom? Does Allah tell you the wisdom? Does Allah always tell you the wisdom yes or no? Does Allah always tell you the wisdom? The answer is no. Does he tell you here? Yes. He clearly says the reason I made it happen. The kala Hakuna. I didn't want me in a hydrogen

01:09:18--> 01:09:55

fee as well as the AI him. I did that so there'll be no blame on the believers for marrying the ex wives of their adopted sons after their divorce. Then Allah subhanaw taala shares with you a few more verses. Matt can add an idiom and how much there is no blame on the Prophet sallallahu wasallam for doing what Allah has ordained. Now what Allah do is defending him you know why? Because people are talking. He got married to his daughter in law to him and not just being hypocrites. So Allah is defending him and how beautiful Allah defends. And Allah can defend you as want to sha Allah, Allah can defend you, but hold tight to the rope of Allah which is the Quran, sunnah to life in Medina

01:09:55--> 01:09:59

fenomen. Kabul, this is the way Allah established this thing. What can Amarula Chodron what

01:10:00--> 01:10:41

Madura when Allah decreased something brother a son just asked me a question, what is decreed? When Allah decrees something it means it will happen no matter what. Right? Tron drag can change the color anyways. Then Allah says a letting you buy Ubuntu only seletti the result in law we have shown those who basically give Dawa share the knowledge and this is shows me something very profound, no matter how embarrassing the Prophet it was to him, that Allah said that he had and he was concerned about the people, he still told us correct. This shows your truthful he was that I was wrong. I will tell the world this where Allah said and nothing will be held back. May Allah protect us and grant

01:10:41--> 01:10:53

us truthfulness. Say I mean, then look at this. Well I shown I had an ill Allah, they fear no one, these prophets, they fear no one but Allah. And the Prophet feared no one but Allah, because he shared with us the verse.

01:10:54--> 01:10:56

Do you fear people more than Allah?

01:10:57--> 01:11:36

Who is the belief it sounds haram? Do you fear people more than Allah? Sometimes you have to ask this question to yourself. Why did I fail in this point? Why did I do this? And who was wrong? Did I really get scared from a manager at work? That was willing to do the haram. So does that mean it may be means we don't understand Allah good enough. It may mean that we don't know God's punishment good enough. It may mean we don't know Allah's reward good enough. You know what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, ready for this? He said of the greatest forms of jihad. Jihad, the greatest and the noblest of fighting, is when you speak a word of truth in the face of an unjust ruler. It's

01:11:36--> 01:12:13

scary. May Allah grant the strength say I mean, and the Prophet said, if you cannot change an evil thing with your hand, then change it with what? With your tongue if you can't change it with your tongue and change it with your, and that's the weakest of faith, meaning your minimum if you see something that is wrong, please in the states in America, many times we cannot change and evils our hands Correct. For the Kenyan, may Allah protect us beware. And sometimes if you say things verbally, you also get in trouble. And then the minimum is when you see it, your heart has to reject it. Your heart should not celebrate it. Your heart should not support it. That's the minimum. So

01:12:13--> 01:12:54

don't come and do the absolute opposite. Look what the Prophet said ready? Rasool Allah Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam says, lie, they don't know how to come NAFSA Don't you ever belittle yourself? Don't put yourself down and yellow hammer on the life in Himachal to see a matter which is wrong in the sight of Allah. Fella goofy, and you don't say anything about it. It's wrong. It's haram, and you don't do anything. You don't take action. You don't clarify, you do not advise you remain silent. Then on the Day of Judgment, Allah will bring that person I will ask a man manok Why did you not say something? You saw what that man did? And you know what's wrong? A fact is not difference of

01:12:54--> 01:13:06

opinion. Why did he speak to this woman who did that wrong? Why ma'am. And then the person says Mahathat, the nurse because I was worried about people. I was worried about what people will say. Then Allah says for a year you couldn't haka and

01:13:08--> 01:13:48

you were better off being concerned about me not that people. May Allah protect us era but I mean, very strong. You know, authentic hadith once a hobby. He heard this. When he heard this, he was shaking. So he said the moment I verified this authentic hadith, he said, I went to Malawi, and they filled his ears with advice for the Allahu Allah. He said, Why? Because I have to say because some some things are more I need to advise them. 120 authentic hadith. So sometimes, you have to have that courage to speak and walleye many times. You will be surprised at how people will appreciate it correct. Remember the example I gave you not too long ago, actually now COVID made everything pause.

01:13:48--> 01:14:22

It was a long time ago, the example that I was in the airplane. Remember that for those that went to reset a series too old too long ago, I was flying from Detroit to Atlanta. And then I said I was in the middle seat. And may Allah be with those in the middle seat. Remember? And then so the person in the flight attendant comes back what we'd like to drink. So then I asked for water no ice, and then the one next to me she asked for alcohol. So usually when the flight attendant passes on the drink, if the person is far you help and reach out. So the guy was like doing

01:14:23--> 01:14:24

like I'm not helping this

01:14:25--> 01:14:59

person this is me can't grab alcohol. Allah cursed Allah cursed the one who makes alcohol. The one who serves alcohol the one who delivers alcohol don't who drinks alcohol, the one who grabs alcohol all that stuff right? Now protect us. So I want to get involved in certain some looks we're okay. So she grabbed this alcohol it was a small bottle Okay, so I was the thing that got me nervous was what I was working on my lecture of the Prophet said so I said, so I'm like no my image Islam Oh my god. Right What action nurse you concerned about people? So then I'm like, Okay, I'm working on

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

Notice her what was she doing?

01:15:04--> 01:15:14

She wasn't able to open and I'm like, I can't do this. I can't i My heart is bleeding. I want to help her out but now with alcohol, right? So then she looked at me.

01:15:16--> 01:15:21

So I was like working, working no icon. I'm actually ignoring her tomorrow and like, nothing. So then

01:15:22--> 01:15:29

she's struggling. So the guy next to me, he was having big headphones. I remember watching college football. So I said she wants to.

01:15:30--> 01:15:38

She's like, okay, yes, ma'am. Can you please open this for me? He's like, okay, and he was confused. Like, why didn't he open it?

01:15:39--> 01:16:04

So I was so nervous it was so sometimes you get so nervous, like, you know why just give me this thing that's all drink together. Right? Because sometimes the pressure the pressure so much that it backfires, right? You know, you guys are laughing how many times there's an accident happens if oh my god and going right or wrong? Suddenly they get so nervous for seeing an accident. You want to crash in the car. It happens to happen. People just get nervous.

01:16:06--> 01:16:07

Don't tell him I drank alcohol.

01:16:08--> 01:16:10

Are you under my shirt? Alcohol, right? We all love us. I'm telling you.

01:16:11--> 01:16:45

Right. So the point being here is that may Allah bless applicati mela Grantham, Jana Yara wonderful mashallah Tabata cola. So then, as we were lending I was very nervous rotten, but am I going to grab it? Well, Lankan though ah, Wallah, they're gonna ban me from Delta banned me from Delta. I'm not grabbing this thing. Yeah, let make it easy for us. Let's go American Airlines. And so then when I as I was landing, I said, I had to address this is getting out of control. My emotions are just all over the place. So, you know, please close your laptops. And you know, put your tables back in. You know, I was we were lending. I told the lady like, I shouldn't tell you something. I'm so sorry.

01:16:46--> 01:17:24

I'm so sorry. for that. I know what you're going through this whole time. I did see you struggling opening it. I should explain to you is this just because of my religious matter? That was not able, like, bro, you gave us a lecture of over 600 700 people. Action is different than talking. The whole two different pictures. Okay, so then I told her no, I'm so sorry, is my religion tells me I cannot grab it. I cannot sell it. I cannot hold it. I cannot pour it. I cannot serve it anyway. She was like, actually, I was very impressed by you. I'm like, really? This whole time you're impressed upon me. Tell me You're impressive. The cash. I was very impressed by and she said the word I forgot the

01:17:24--> 01:17:26

word. It was a bit big that I had to define it on Google.

01:17:27--> 01:17:50

Forgive me, my vocabulary is okay. And it makes me survive. So I think she said I am very impressed by you're very disciplined or something like that. You're very committed to your faith. I was very impressed by that. And like, oh, okay, thank you. I kind of went I said, Do you know anything else? I mean, I'm gonna bring the bag. It's me. I want to bring your carry on. I'll carry out I'll clean your shoes for you. I went all out. She's an old lady relaxed. My wife is he relaxes oddly.

01:17:51--> 01:17:52

Well, luckily, her shoe was handed.

01:17:55--> 01:18:01

To the very old lady, very old, like really old, like, really old. Okay.

01:18:03--> 01:18:41

I can't delete this because it's watched live. Well, it's very old. Again. Anyhow. So then you do this. And then you don't get concerned about people. Yes, sometimes we feel and sometimes you feel but we have to stand up, back again. And go back to Allah subhanho wa taala. Four minutes left. Eventually the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he has a nice wedding. And he has the lamp will hobos. And she had a wedding in which meat was being served. People used to come to the prophets house. So Allah Allah, they used to eat and then they used to leave these to eat and they used to leave. But there's a group of people that stayed. You know, those people that

01:18:42--> 01:19:07

they come from afar and they make you mister away, or they get personal, no fights after this, right? So that may Allah bless you all. And remember when you feed the people, and you take care of your families also reward okay, it can even be it can possibly be better than thorough as possible, right, listening to your mom helping you and so on. So then, also, he had some guests that stayed over for so long that he left his house,

01:19:08--> 01:19:45

his wedding night because leave I had my wife will come over. They stayed they said to the Prophet left and NSV Malik. He says I walked with him because NS was a servant of the Prophet SAW Salem. And they were walking on the Prophet was saying salaam to his family. So one of his wife said, So how was your new wife gone? Right? So and this pneumatic didn't want to comment. Right? So the price and behavior handler and some said it was actually a drought of Baraka anyhow. Then, and it's funny, Malik says, I don't know if I told him or he told me but eventually the guests left. Then the province I said and finally when they left. He came in along with Zainab, check this out.

01:19:46--> 01:19:55

The Prophet walked in and who was his wife, Xena, and it was after them was walking. And a Caesar servant said when I came the Prophet put a hijab

01:19:56--> 01:19:59

job. Let's hijab that was the day

01:20:00--> 01:20:35

hijab became an obligation. As I told him that was before hijab, this holster was before hijab became module. So understanding what it says, And the hijab became an obligation. So the baraka of Xena vintage ash, is the fact that she changed a very bad cultural practice. She got to know more about Taqwa. And she was the woman behind the whole hijab being obligated. And then I said, I couldn't walk in. He didn't say, Well, I know how you look like by the way, no. Rules are rules. They can change the way Allah wants it to change. So final words, brothers and sisters, obey Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, obey. The Prophet SAW Selim and you'll be the happiest person alive. Of the

01:20:35--> 01:21:12

two minutes I have. I will summarize my lesson in one short story. 14 I've been to Christ Radi Allahu anha. She was married. Eventually, her husband divorced her. When he divorced her, she went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the Prophet told her, wait, the three months approximately waiting period for the one who's divorced, do not accept any proposals. Do not get married to no one until you consult with me first. How beautiful is that? I appreciate very understanding. He's a very busy man. But I wouldn't have the sister out. So far to have been the case. She completes her in about three months or so. Then she comes to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi

01:21:12--> 01:21:51

wasallam. And she tells him three men proposed to me, this is an AMA Allahumma barik. So who are they? One of them is Malia, if I'm not mistaken, and the other one is another Sahabi. And then the third one is oh seven is eight. So the private tells her as for why we're here, his broke, you will struggle financially with him. I don't think you'll be suitable for you. As for the second one, he has history of not respecting woman very much and sometimes he actually physical. He was very transparent. That's how we have to be when someone asked us about marriage. What do you think of this man? Do you think of this woman has to be very honest, not backbiting. It's okay. But stay

01:21:51--> 01:22:26

within the limits. So he tells her go 407 is eight. He's the guy. She said Osama Osama. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. The only reason she said oh Salman is because she wants to tell them what happened. Was that No, no, no, no. He said, Awesome. Trust me, take Osama. She said that as a watchdog. And I took his advice and I married him. She said for Atul at Allah Who Elena will hire. She said Allah bless this marriage in a way had the people start to wish and pray their marriages like my marriage.

01:22:27--> 01:23:00

But you know, what's the whole point I wanna share with you? Before she married him. The Prophet told her Yeah, Fatima, PA to Allah. He was solely hiring, obeying Allah and His Prophet is always good for you. And she took this to her heart. And she didn't know what in America or some in New Zealand, and she had her marriage is is has been blessed is it been phenomenal? And she was very happy with that and remember the sentence for the rest of your life, obeying Allah, and obeying His Prophet will always be higher and good for you.
