âThe best people are those living in my generation, and then those who will follow them, and then those who will follow the latterâ¦â( Sahih BukhÄri)
Ofcourse we all need role models to guide us through the day. But the best role models are the Prophets and what the Qur’an has to say! It’s not without any good reason that we should take them as our heroes but because of the great work that they have done for Islaam. They were the ones who sacrificed everything for Allaah and took care of everyone’s needs. They fought for justice heroically and spread the message with peace. Because of them we’re here today, they gave us quite a release!
Listen to this lecture and find for yourself the answers to many questions.
Mr. Lara Payne Alhamdulillah Rabbil aalameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah mousseline Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi woman Debbie on the sun and Elijah Medina My bad. So alga Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Ravi Shastri sadri westalee Andrey waffle determine lasagna Coco Lee. I welcome you all as salam aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakato. We'll get started off with the topic for today, which is who should be a role model? At the outset, let me ask you a question. What does a role model mean to us? Now, if I was to ask you this question, I would get different responses. Some would say that a role model is someone we look up to, some
people would feel that he role models someone he or she wishes to emulate. And one of the qualities of the role model is that we talk like them, we wish to dress like them. We walk like them, we imitate the style, we pick up the manners, giving you a simple example.
If I gave you a simple example, which is of what happens in the movie industry, the Bollywood industry and the Hollywood industry, where many of our friends who take up role models, we often find them trying to imitate the movie stars. Likewise, in the sports circuit, we find people trying to imitate the hairstyle of a footballer, or the talking style or the singing style of a singer.
In short, a role model is someone you look up to you wish to emulate.
And who are the what are the examples of role models that people can take up? Well, there is a sports personality, like I just mentioned, a movie actor, or business tycoon, or even a political leader, and there can be many other role models that people can take.
However, there is a difference between a real life role model and a real life role model. For example, many of these film stars whom we are referring to today, they live a real life, they don't live a real life, we emulate their lifestyle which they show on the movie hall, or in front of your screen. But in reality, that's not the real life and reality they are totally different person. That's why I call it a personality disorder of many pop stars and movie stars. And because of this personality disorder, we often find many of these pop stars and movie stars, ending their life at a very early stage. They commit suicide, because they themselves are confused between the life that
they live and the life that they show to the people. Likewise, we have found that Sports Personality who are taken up as role models are found taking harmful drugs. a role model is supposed to be someone we look up to emulate, how is it that I suppose personality, like Lance Armstrong, for example, the one who was a cancer survivor, and only recently was found that he was involved in doping and taking harmful drugs. Likewise, businessmen whom we take up as role model subsequently are found involved in unethical practices. giving an example for those people who would be well aware of a company called McKinsey. McKinsey had a man called Rajat Gupta, who very recently was
found in the crime of
unethical practices. He was found in something called the insider trading, which is not a topic of discussion. However, any of you interested can join the Islamic banking and economics class that we have in Sharla. And you can learn more about it. But for the time being, understand that all these role models that you take are businessmen, sports, personality, movie stars, actors full stop the whole lives of fake life, they live a real life. We need to identify our role models in those people who live a real life, whatever they appear in front of others, is what they are when they go back home.
So who are our real life role models? Well, let's talk about why we Muslims need a role model. We need. The Muslims need a role model because we need to build a man. We need to have a trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. We need to trust in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we need to find a role model who can help us build love for Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we need to find the role model who will help us live and die for the sake of Allah. Now these are some of the qualities that a Muslim must look for when he identifies himself.
With a role model, if a firm stock can help you build demand, which I really doubt, then we can have a discussion on it. If he can help you build trust in Allah. Well, we can have a discussion on that. But the reality is, none of these role models which we refer to in the first part, can actually help you build your love for Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and let's understand as Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us and sort of Toba was number 24, that if you love any of the materialistic desires, which are there in this world, your parents, your families, your children, your wealth, your house, your property, any of these things more than Allah and His Messenger
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and during jihad in the cause of Allah, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will soon bring our destruction upon us. So we understand our objective should be to increase the love for Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
amongst the people which the Muslims emulate, is the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. There is no doubt that he was the bestest man to have you ever walked on the face of the earth. He was the bestest husband to have ever walked on the face of the earth. He was the bestest son to have ever walked on the face of the earth. He was the bestest brother to have ever walked on the face of the earth. He was the bestest father to have ever walked on the face of the earth. He was the bestest companion to have ever walked on the face of the earth. And it will be no exaggeration to say that he was perhaps the most exemplary military men to have ever walked on the face of the earth who
showed for whose life we can actually learn a lot. We will today look at some of the examples from the life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, which actually makes it very clear to us about the quality of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam and these are the qualities which we need to imbibe in ourselves with the objective of having a role model is not that we just look up to someone that that role model must bring about a change in our life. So let's look at some of the virtues of companionship of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam upon occasion Rasul Allah sallallahu Sallam had a Jew as his neighbor. And what this Jew would do was every night before Ross, he went to sleep, he would plant
forms in the part of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. His idea was that when rasulillah salam would go at night to relieve himself, the palms would pick him up.
Now, what was the
outcome of this? Okay, getting back to what I was saying that this enemy of Rasulullah Salaam, he planted pawns in the path of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, one day Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam came to know that this child of this Jew has fallen sick, immediately Rasul Allah, Allah ran to the house of this man and knocked onto the door. As soon as the Jew opened the door, he saw Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam someone who was enemy number one to the Jews, because the Jew looked down upon us illallah wa sallam, he thought Prophet sallallahu Sallam to be his number one enemy. But now we find the Prophet sallallahu wasallam standing at the doorstep and telling him take me to your child
who's fallen sick, immediately
goes to the child and look at the heart of this Jewish father. When he sees his number one enemy has come to meet his child who has fallen sick, he lets him go and a full allotment goes up to the child and says, accept Islam
and inshallah I will intercede for you on the Day of Judgment. The child looks at his father because he knows that his father had never spoken anything good about the Prophet peace be upon him. He knows that the Prophet the father, had always plotted against Rasul Allah for color, but at this point of time, we see the change in heart of the Jewish father. He tells his son to as Muhammad tells you to do Salalah salah and the child reads the kalama Chabot lol Hello, Lola, Shabana, Mohammed Abdullah rasuluh. And he embraces Islam. And in sometimes he passes away. The Prophet peace be upon him steps out of the house, hitting his hands on his thighs and seeing all praise is due to
Allah who chose me to say someone from eternal Doom to eternal success. Why do we need to talk of this aspect of our soul A lot of it is because we do have our own enemies in our life, whether it could be related to business or personal life or professional life, whatever it is, that what we do is when we see a loss of our enemies we rejoice however, the prophet of Islam peace be upon him prioritized Islam
over anything, can you imagine a neighbor of yours who was always against you? And now some fall sick? What would we say? We probably will go around telling
him, this is how we would react. But look at how rasulillah salam reacts he prioritizes Islam first ahead of any personal differences. There is a message in this for all of us. How does the civil law system deal with strangers upon occasion or civil law? So someone came up to him in companionship with a baby. And this baby was a stranger. And what the prophet is reporting did was he took out the miswak of the rock, and we broke it into two, one he gave to the Jews and the crooked Slovak he kept it for himself. The other department he gave it to the bedroom and not the Jews. And the bedroom looks up a falafel film and he says Yara salatu salam, you are the Nabi of Allah, you're a soul of
Allah, you give me the crewcuts miswak and keep the straight one. Prophet peace be upon himself. People will be judged on the day of judgment on how they dealt with those who came in the companionship. And I wish to show to a law that who ever came in my companionship I gave him the best Subhana Allah, look at our lives. In fact, we would race to get the best for ourselves. This is how we are. I mean, I'm not going to debate whether it is right or wrong, but I'm just trying to show you how Rasul Allah wa sallam says, that even for this little charity, where you give something which is more beloved to you to a stranger, Allah subhanaw taala will reward you for that. There is
something in this for us to also look up to in the life of a fellow lots of Philip. You see, the life of a solar system is so diverse, that every aspect is something which we can emulate. What I've tried to do is I've just tried to reduce it, and you know, speak of the most important thing, which I feel in today's time. However, civil law sort of deal with his relatives. So tanoa Rasul Allah says, lm had a foster sister by the name of Shama, the daughter of Halima, and it happened that she was one of the characters and she was a prophet, a woman at that time, and when she came to Medina has attracted a lot of Cosima to me. And incitements to deal number seven Lola with Philip Ross, you
will also see a picture of his cloak and he puts it on the floor of the masjid a lovely fellow man in the center, and instruct the obliges his sister, his foster sister Shama, sit on this Seamus trembling in fear, she says, Mohamed, however, you have become the king of Medina, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, of shaimaa just like you are a doctor of a poor woman, so I'm a son of a poor woman, because your mother is the one who breastfed me. Look at the humanity of Rasul Allah. Imagine us, if we would have been in a situation where someone would be losing our status, it would have made us get more out of it. But look at this humility of Rasul Allah, Allah, He says,
just like you are a doctor of a poor woman, so am I a son of a poor woman, and then also a loss of time, spend some time with shaimaa all the topic in this discussion is about their childhood, what they would do, how they would spend time how they would play, how they would keep hurting one another ingest in play like how little children do. At the end of this Rasul Allah says, Allah asks Shama Would you like to stay back in Medina go back to her village, and she chooses the latter, and the sooner la Selim gives her a common living with gifts and sees her off what was the dollar document so can a bit at this point, she's the carpet a woman, but we don't see any proactive dollar
than masala lotto Salah yet, yet, it was the vow of the La Casa de la salud, which changes the heart of this woman. She goes back to her village and she gathers all her women of the village and says, All women of my village me out none of you have a brother like I have for my brother is no other than the 100 peace be upon him. And I testify that there is no god whether your worship Allah and my brother Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam.
Just look at the dollar before a lot of the orphan try to think the dollar has a standard approach. baloney I'm telling you my dear brothers and sister there is no standard approach when we look into the life of Brazil a lot of film and we see how the full a lot of filament different point of times use different means to do our at times. It was his character which stood out and not how we do it. Today, when we learn a little about Islam. We go back to our parents, we go back to our brothers and sisters and we split
I will show them the place to place of hellfire. So Pamela Docomo, sulaco Tulum is dealing with his relatives. This is pixma casilla latoken, the new his sister very well. And there is a message for us over here as well.
Forget animate objects, right in animate objects came in the companionship of Rasul Allah, Allah, He will do fell in love with Rasul Allah. Upon occasion Rasul Allah says Allah would stand with rest against the tree and give his dhammapada one of the women she came up and said jasola la sala, I have a slave use a carpenter. If you planned it, I would ask him to make a profit for you and assume a lot of them give her the permission and come the next Juma Rasul Allah says Adam stands on the carpet and starts giving the football as he is giving the football there is a huge cry. Some of the companions noted that it was as though a she camel has been separated from the child the cry of a
she camel, some of the companions married it was as a little child is crying out of hunger.
The Prophet peace be upon him distance from the pulpit and immediately goes to the three against which he would rest and he embraces the tree and holds on to the tree till the tree stops crying, so Tama loving imagine a tree and started crying. Why? Because it lost companionship of Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam on this Friday, and the companions narrate the Rasul Allah for kilowatt hours the tree would you like to be a tree in Jannah, from where the Umbria and the righteous people would eat the fruits of the tree chose to be a tree from time to time Allah, you look at Do you look into our life. You look into our life, we don't have a philosophy around us today. We have mostess
companionship, and you see how the tree is reacting to this loss. And you see how we are you're not even bothered about it. It doesn't make a difference that Rasul Allah says, Allah is not around us, the greatest calamity to have ever been falling on the Muslim Ummah, is the loss of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and yet, we don't follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu perhaps the only thing which is alive of Rasul Allah, Allah is his Sunnah. You don't follow it anything when it comes to the Prophet sallallahu Salem's life we say it's a similar and those people who are well versed with Urdu would know Simba in ob means to hear and this is what we do we just listen from one year
and we take it out because some not from one year and take it out from the other side how to run a lot of elevators from among those who follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu ala you you see when it comes to the cinema of Britney Spears as a scholar, when it comes to the center of the wall a mystery or where the spoiler but when it comes to the sumo wrestler, a lot of Salaam we say this is optional, or growing the beard is optional sporting the hijab is optional. And look, I don't want to say that the deen is only on hijab and beard. But this is something which appears very plainly and we must adopt it. Coming back to the incident of the tree. hassanal Busey Rahim. Allah says, if
this is the love that you have for rasulillah salam, what is the love that you should have for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from among those who love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in words. And, indeed,
let's talk about the other heroes of Islam. Apart from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. After the MDR Elijah Salatu was salam, the bestest of people who have walked on the face of the earth were the companions of the Prophet peace be upon him. And it will be no exaggeration to say that before Islam came, the same group of people were regarded as the fifth column owners of the society. They are called the US philosopher in the lives of the law. However, when Islam came, and when they came in contact with the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him, the same group of people became the sulfasalazine. The best example is of Khalid bin Walid, before Islam, he was an Allah, an enemy of
Allah. And after Islam, the same man became safer law, the sword of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Can there be a better view of Islam for the Muslims, then the companions of the Prophet, peace be upon him? These were people of substance, these are people of actions. And he wrote the alarm who when he became the talus, and this was of course at a time when a smaller vilanova has become martyred. The people are in confusion. There is a lot of trouble in the khilafah and I will be alone when he serves the purpose only
faces of people, then you are in need of a line of actions, and not a man who mentally speaks for people who are in need of original for our lack of man of action. And while he These are people who live 1400 years ago, they were men of action. They will not men of speech alone. Because today, you and me are really people who can talk very well. Some of us can really talk other than to the table. But we like action. We all talk about revolutionising. We all want to change the world, we all want to have kalapa we want to do so many things. People have action, zero, you're only restricted to talk come for your time. And none of us is awake at that if you have
very few of us Awake, awake at night that we want to wake up the kalapa the people who want to bring a baby sleeping in the bed, and Subhanallah That is why we need to go back and look into our life in perspective. Who is our role model? Have we really chosen the right people? These are people who are serving in the scale the connotation of the liveliness or the allow and who are very famous Companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was climbing a tree. And as he was climbing the tree, his shins got exposed, and the companion started to have a lot the copper coat tell us what makes you laugh. And this is the answer. A lot of the teachings of Islam are saved. You see these do it in
our daily life. Also, when you see somebody who's very fat was very thin. We have a lot of overhead. Look at what asuma Selim says, defending the owner of his companion Subhana Allah, for a lot of volunteers, is the king shins of Islam as was placed on one side of the scales, and the entire mountain of a hug was placed on the other side of the scales. The thin shins of ignoramus would be heavier. Can you imagine? Can you imagine what people are talking off the companions of the Prophet peace be upon him. The profit is appalling, never worked on building tall structures. He never worked on building huge empires. He worked on the hearts and minds of these companions, till a time
came in a span of less than 20 years, that these people became the best of people to walk on the face of the earth. So a lot of them took these people out from darkness and gave them the light of thought he came in the body alone who says that the must do the number with someone all of a sudden had no lanten it had no light. And it was only in the eighth century, that are gifted a lot too much to do a lot of stuff repellent. Yet, from the darkness of the words of masjidul novelist sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the naked men who illuminated the world with the light of tawheed Subhana Allah
the companions of the Prophet peace be upon him are the real heroes of Islam. And we should look up to them, let us look into some of the lives of the companions of the Prophet peace be upon him and derive lessons from their life, so that after this lecture, we can actually go back and change our models, doing changes in our lives and and introspect into our lives and find out what is right and what is wrong.
As I mentioned a little earlier, that the Prophet peace be upon is the ultimate hero of Islam. He is the best role model that any one of us can have. And after the Prophet peace be upon him, it is the companions. And we of course, know that among the companions, we have state grades, like the Barbary Sahabi, like those who gave the flesh under the tree of advance.
Let me ask you, my dear brothers and sisters, how many of you know that there was a single Hadith of the Prophet peace be upon him where he gave? Granted paradise gave a prophecy of Paradise to 10 of his beloved companions? How many of you really know the name of the 10 of the companions? Well, this is the victaulic You don't need to answer. The objective of asking you this question is not each of us know who are these 10 who are granted paradise? The objectives of our life is what the objective of our life is, to live this life and
attain paradise. That's the ultimate objective. And to attain paradise, we must know what are the some of the people who enter Paradise.
So let us see who are these 10 who are going to paradise. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam says, I will brockers and Tara will be in paradise. Over in Qatar will be in Paradise, a man with a plan will be in paradise. I live near Vitaly, will be in Paradise and who is Abu Bakar
do karate alone Whoa, regarding Abu Bakar Casa de Casa La La selam says that, for all those who have done favor upon me, I have repaid them except for the favor of Abu Bakar Sadiq for only Allah can repay the favor of Abu Bakr Rhapsody. The Prophet peace be upon him said that the first man to be erected from the grave on the day of judgment will be me and after moon it shall be Abu Bakr a sad day for the allow mo the Prophet peace be upon him said that Abu Bakar acid D will be the first man from my own money to be bought to me at the how the cursor the Prophet peace be upon him said that Abu Bakar oxidic will be my companion at the hub just like he was my companion at the cave. The
Prophet peace be upon him said there Abu Bakar oxido hora de Allahu will be the first man from my own mokuba Jana, upon occasion the Prophet peace be upon him, said that
last night jabril came to me and he took he dragged me into paradise. Abu Bakr Siddiq says jasola La Silla, I wish I was also there I too would have entered Jenna the Prophet peace be upon him says Dr. tidings Abu Bakar for the first man from Oman to enter Paradise would be you or Abu Bakr has to be the Prophet peace be upon him says that when the scales are erected to measure the deeds, the first person for whom the scale shall be erected will be overridden alcopop, the companions are surprised this era Sula, La Silla What about a Viva Casa de the Prophet peace be upon themselves from men like Abu Bakar sad, there are no scales. And let me tell you, my dear brothers and sisters, if there was
kids to measure the good deeds, what would happen upon occasion the Prophet peace be upon themselves.
That is, the image of the entire humanity was placed on one side of the scale. And just the Eman of Abu Bakar was placed on the other side of the scale, the image of Abu Bakar would outweigh the man of the entire humanity. When we understand the virtues of these people. Let me tell you the virtues of Oh Maribel katavi Alon who regarding whom the Prophet peace be upon him says that if karma takes apart and is shaytan, Caesar Miranda shikon changes this pathway. Can you imagine the man and the taqwa of these companions of the Prophet peace be upon him, regarding us man or the animal the Prophet peace be upon him said upon occasion Rasul Allah says Allah was lying down and there was a
knock on the door, and I shall reveal on opens the door and it is Abu Bakr Siddiq, radi Allahu Allah and personal losses, Trump gives him permission to come in, and he remains lying down with a portion of his shin a little exposed. And then there's another knock on the door. And this time Omar is not hooked up comes and rasulillah gives him permission to come in and assume a locker room doesn't move. A little portion of the shin is still exposed. When there's another knock on the door and discom isodiol Allah says O Messenger of Allah, it is a man with a first immediately Rasul Allah saw some setup, and he asked him to come in. Ayesha Yolanda says Yasuo La Silla. My see you do something
which I've never seen you do. Where are my father came with Omar key, you did move during a snon team, you immediately sorted out the way you were sitting. The Prophet peace be upon him says, How can I not have hierarchy? How can I not have shame from a math from him even the angels are higher from the virtue of the offender the alarm? No, the only companion, the only man on the face of the earth to have been given two daughters of a prophet and marriage of magnepan was twice the feminine law of the Prophet peace be upon him. He was son in law to the power of two suppiler Allah,
Allah, Allah who was the fourth amongst the the 10 who were crowned with paradise, and we know he's from the LA bed, as he too has his virtues. And then you have Taha and Zubair and regarding Sangha and Zubair, the prophet peace be upon in the house of Aloha and Zubair will be next to my house in Geneva, a group of people who look down upon the candidature of fell into bed. But look at this, when rasulillah salam says that the house of Allah and Zubair is next to his house in Shanna and if somebody does not appreciate the virtues of talhah and Zubair we have put a vote of no confidence on the Scylla laferla. They love Allah save us from this regarding Zubair agilon, who says that every
prophet has got disciple and my disciple is a bird agnello Rama below and home upon occasion, it is said that Rasul Allah says, Allah need to ask for the sword of the bird. What happened was when he was 15 years old
This was in the days of NACA, a rumor spread that Prophet peace be upon in has been killed and immediately is diverted to the streets of Makkah with a sword in his hand. And the first man he bumped into was Rasul Allah, Allah. Allah Rasool Allah says, Where are you up to? So they're the best as your soul Allah, I'd heard that they had killed you and I have promised to make the streets of Mecca flow with the blood vessel, a lot of films made up for the courage and the sword of Zubair and how bless it whether brow Wasilla la cosa love. It is said the only two men in the history of Islam could arrive, ride the horse and control the horse would defeat and fight with the sword and
the hand. One was seipel la collagen Valley, and the other was buried near LA, near la VPS. Within the seventh of the train who were granted paradise was sada cambio class. rhodiola who the ninth of Islam the uncle of the Prophet, peace be upon in the age of the companions to be granted paradise in a single Hadees was Abu Berliner Java may Allah be pleased with him and the Prophet peace be upon him said that every oma has an amine, trustworthy man and a meme of our own is better than the Giovanni Allah be pleased with him. The name is Abdullah man in the body allow the multi millionaire of the Muslim Ummah Do you believe no, this
is the opposite multi millionaire upon occasion, Rasul Allah, Allah gathered the companions and this was when he was sending a group of Army for an expedition, and he wanted some funds. So he asked the Sahaba to come forward and give money, and I've got a man if they all had 4000 dinars. And he came to the solo la silla, and he gave him 2000 dinars as a loan to Allah subhanho wa Taala and the rest 2000 he kept for his family. Can you imagine this is not 2.5% zaca you see when we are brothers come and give money for the sake of Allah What do they say? Well, we've already taken out the Zakat for this year come back next year, let me know in advance next year inshallah give you next year. So
kind of go back man, if he is giving away sadaqa in the way of Allah, this is the Lord which is giving it giving to Allah and inshallah Allah will repeat.
On another occasion, also Allah said and gathered the companions, and he was planning to send the army to the book, and he gathered the companions, and they were in need of money. And all the companions gave money, but there was still a shortfall, and up there a man of NEOs game, and he gave whatever was left with him to Rasul Allah for Allah.
Photography allowed Oh, sitting there, he says, jasola I see a man doing something wrong. He's given away everything in row in the law and left nothing with his family. So a lot of phone calls, and says, oh, man, Is this true? And I've got a family now. So there are still a lot. I have left a lot with my family, as well. So tell them says, tell me what did you leave on? And he says, you also lots of them. I have left with my family, the promise of great reward, if they do suffer upon the situation in which they are right now. SubhanAllah look, at best in Lanzarote, we have a barrage of when the need came to stand in the way of a law, he gave away everything. And what do we leave
behind with his family, the planners that alone gives to those who do suffer upon calamities, those who do suffer upon difficult situations, those who do suffer upon challenging situations, and we all face it. We all face this in our daily life, a beggar comes at the house. And when we have five rupees in our pocket, what do we do? We say, Oh, well five rupees, I mean, basically, you know $5, maybe if you are in terms of international currency, what do we do? So better comes? We will think twice, before giving him that money, we will think about what that $5 can benefit us. So Hannah, well, let me tell you about Hassan may Allah be pleased with him, the talents of Islam, the grandson
of the Prophet, peace be upon him, the son of Alinea might be pleased with him as somebody who would spend a lot of money in charity. And upon occasion, one of his companion came to him and said, Oh, ameerul momineen, I see that you give away all your money to those who come to you, you don't even identify. You don't even think that you don't even screen the applications to figure out whether these people genuinely deserve the money or not. You just keep giving it away. As Emily Alonso says is a lot less to screen our applications and give us money and risk on the basis of what we do. Then I am afraid Allah will take away everything that we
Have because Allah has given us more than what we deserve. So Pamela, look at the our charity, our charity, as many times is dependent on what return will I get if I give him money? He's gonna do some work for me. So let me keep him happy. But that's not the allowance Oh, we have a lesson from his life, his life as well. And the 10th of the companions to be granted paradise was the eat dessert, may Allah be pleased with him. These were 1010 who were granted paradise in a single Hades should we not know about their life? Should we not know more about them? What would they life? What were the characteristics? What were the virtues, because that will take us to paradise as well.
let me tell you an incident from the life of psychedelics for the Salome may Allah be pleased with him, and inshallah there will be a question and answer session at the end. So all of you who've got questions can just wait inshallah, let me just finish off with the session, Savalas where the salumi was not a very notable companion and of course we don't hear any Hadith narrated from him because he died in the life of a fool a lot of Salah. What happened was sad was done by his collection last when he was a little dark, or when he was really dark. That's why the name Allah, He comes to the Messenger of Allah sauce elemental, Yasuo Allah. Will I not intend to genda look at the concern of a
Sahabi It is really not into into agenda
would we do if we would have been around? We would say Yasuo, Allah says Allah, look at this business of mine. Do you think this business will earn a lot of reward and wealth? Subhana Allah, look at Tada. That's where the salumi is concerned. This fear is Chanda. rasulillah salam says Assad surely you shall enter genda if you die as a believer, then started DeAngelo Russell to them with his my status in front of the other companions, like the likes of Abu Bakar Amara smart, what is my status in front of them, but you will also see them says your status is like everybody else. If you die a believer, you will enter Jannah you see this is the beauty of the companionship of Rasul Allah
SubhanAllah. Everyone who came in the companionship of rasulillah salam felt that they are the most loved by rasulillah. So, let me just give you a small incident from the life of American Idol as he comes to us with a lot of salad and you have seen him a lot. So he says Dr. Salalah, who is the most beloved to you? He says I shall be pleased with the Sula American philosophy or philosophy amongst men who is most love to you. The sort of lesser Salaam says Abu Bakar Assa T. He says after him, he says another blog caught up he says who after him, he says, Man if an American Allah says I stopped asking after that Allah because Allah Allah term would value every person who came in as
companionship that mean that to sabella salumi after rasulillah salam says your status is as everybody else. He says, Allah says Allah, why is it that no one will get the doctor medicine? Why is it that no one gets the doctor matter to be? You see now he's talking about his real concern. Probably is not getting any man any proposal that is getting the door of Mr. to him. So he comes in US Yasuo la vie will are not Arizona is my status not like other companions. Also La La cillum says is America Javier and Mr. Evening our hub was from Medina, one of the leaders of Medina who have just embraced Islam, and his daughter was known for her beauty. A solo loss of Selim says have
thought go to unreasonable heart and say I Mohammed has sent you seeking his daughter's hand in marriage. sod is elated. Can you imagine he's allowed to have a salumi and immediately now he is going to get married to the most precious moment in Medina. He goes to the house of America and knocks on the door and opens the door and sad marriage to him what had happened. And Emma says, are sad, my daughter with you? Go back and say tell her to the laws of London. I don't agree with this proposal. Then you can understand he is the richest man in Medina, the leader of the people in Medina, his daughters known for her beauty. I mean, you can just imagine somebody really beautiful
in today's time. We all know I mean, not we because my wife can hear me now. So but you all would like to get married and shuffle up. But coming back to saddle so the Salome he is dejected. He is going back because America has refused the proposal.
The top of American they will have is overhearing this. She goes up to his her father and says, Oh my father, what are you doing? This is a proposal from the Messenger of Allah. Where will we be on the Day of Judgment if we are refusing a full Allah Salam on this life? And she says I Your daughter is willing to marry fatherless and the father
claws backside and says Assad go back to the solo la sala and tell him that I have accepted this proposal. Saad is elated. He goes back and asuna la salon does his nikka on 400 denims start comes back and says Yara Sula, La Silla. I am a poor man. Where do I get 400 dirhams from how do I pay the method now? So Rasul Allah says Adam instructs him to go to a dogmatic nail, a smiling nephron and Ollie and take 200 dirhams each. And now with this money, sod is out in the marketplace, buying something for his beloved wife. I mean, all your husband over there would know how you do shopping for your wife. This is outside the story, buying some gifts on his life.
While he is buying the gifts for his wife, there is a cry in the streets of Medina. This is a cry for jihad. And Muslims are being instructed to come together and move for the jihad. Now sad knew that he had recently got married and rasulillah salam would not want him to participate in the battle. So what he did was, he immediately dropped what he was buying for his life. And he looked up at the sky at the heavens and he says yarrabah semira t while our O Lord of the heavens and the earth, I shall buy with this money, something which is pleasing unto thee. And he bought a horse and a sword. And he wrapped himself up completely so that he doesn't get recognized in the battle, and
he hit the battlefield. Can you imagine the love for rasulillah salam? Can you imagine the love this man has for Allah? Can you imagine the love that we have for doing jihad in the cause of Allah, that he left something which was so pleasing unto him, which was marrying a beautiful woman for something which is pleasing unto Allah. And then Saad hits the battlefield, and he's fighting valiantly, and the Sahaba wondering who is this man, and God alone, who says, Let him be alone, whoever he is, he's fighting on our cause. And then sods horses struck and soft falls of the horse. And what he does is he missed this garment like this. And the moment he leaves his garment, his hand gets exposed, and
also lots of cylinders there and he says, oh, sad, is that you? and starts with me, my mother and father we sacrifice for you your full Allah. Indeed, this is your beloved slaves. Indeed, this is your beloved servant sod. And a fellow Lhasa Salaam says or sod after today, there is no other abode for you. But Jenna
This is the man who didn't even know that the heel and agenda awhile ago and now Rasul Allah sees the love this man has for Allah. And he says, No, there is no other abode for you except Jana. Saad is elated. He goes back to the battlefield, and again is fighting brilliantly. And again, there is a cry fod has been martyred sod has been martyred, and the solar system runs into the battlefield. And he takes sod in his lap. And this incident, by the way, is mentioned by hydrolock Kalani nella Sava, that also often takes him on his lap, and he starts crying, the tears of a solar system flowing down his blessed cheek, and then we'll have lots of slides. And then he turns his head away.
Another Sahabi is standing over there and he says you're a philosopher and I'm I see you do something which I've never seen you do before. You were crying, and then you smile, and then you turn your head away. pasilla Lhasa Sallam said, I was crying, because I saw my beloved pass away in front of my eyes. And I saw a deep love in his heart for Allah and me.
I was smiling, because I saw his status. He was being brought to the hallway closer. And that is why I smiled. And he said, shall I not tell you what the Holy Ghost is? The Holy Ghost is the one whose water is whiter than milk and sweeter than honey. And I turned my head away, because I saw his wife in janma dev mode, running to welcome him into Jana. And as they were running, the shins were getting exposed and the higher for to the loss of a limb that he turned his head. And then he instructed the Sahabi that go to the wife of Saab and given this horse and serve and tell her that these are the inheritance that fod has left behind for her and let her know that sod has got wives
who are much more beautiful than her in general. So handle the life of saddled us with a tsunami the love that he had for sudo la sala and look at our love for Rasulullah saw Salah as the slightest as the slightest of fear. We let go of our beard as the slightest of fear. We let go of the job and the slightest of fear of what will happen in our job. What will happen to you know we lose our job. We lose our
promotion. I know of a brother who changed his name because his name had been hammered because he wanted better opportunities. So Pamela, we have people doing this.
Look at sabella Salome. And if we desire to be people of Jana should we not look into the love that these people had for a lion as a food seller?
Let me tell you about something about eyeshot of Yolanda, and inshallah we will very soon wrap this up. Upon occasion, a beggar came into the house of Isaiah Avalon and this is an incident which happens after the death of a solo lotto fellow, and he knocks onto the door and buried at the sleeve of ISIS, he opens the door, and it's a beggar who says, Give me something to eat. But he says, We have nothing to give you. Can you imagine the house of a solar lots of solar, the life of the Prophet peace be upon him and they don't have anything to eat? Subhan Allah.
Allah Allah says, Allah Who is it? She says it is Slavia or ummah. I said, Give it to him, whatever he is asking for give it to him. Very that is Omar, we just have a handful of barley for you to break your fast with. I showed you a lot of fasting after time. I says they're lovely pleased with her. She says, Give it to him, along with providers. Remember these words, give it to him a lot with providers. This is the amount of time more food to eat. They don't have a job, they don't have a salary. They are not expecting any money to come in from any business. But they have taught color law, customer law. She says give it to the providers and come every time there is no food for it out
of the law and ha she takes a pass with a glass of water and she starts reading her Margaret salah and while she's reading her McRib saw, there's another knock on the door and very nice, she opens the door. And there is a man who comes and gives a good
shot of Yolanda finishes a silencer.
And she says
a remarkable thing happened. It was a man who has never visited our house. After Rasul Allah Switzerland passed away. And today he came and gifted a group to us via Roma smiles and bellydancers of variera is in this group better than the handful of barley that we have. And then she said a remarkable statement that signifies the man of the people who left 1400 years ago, she said, none of you but I swear by Allah, none of you can be a true believer, unless you're a man in the unseen is more than the man in what you see in the palm of your hands. None of you can be a true believer, unless you're a man in the unseen is more than what you see in front of your hands. The dounia is in
front of you, that you're trusting a lot is more than the dunia this glass of water is in front of my eyes. But my trust in Allah is more than the glass of water in front of my eyes. This is the mind and when we say that we must build a man through the lives of years of a slob. This is an example from the likes of icml Lavie please with her. For the sisters, I wish to also talk about the bravery of Sophia Vint Abdulmutallab, I don't think I'll be able to cover the entirety of it maybe just one incident from the life of Sophia. She was the aunt of the Prophet peace be upon him the sister of Hamza may Allah be pleased with her details. As well as the mother of Zubair in Allah wa one of the
trend granted paradise. So Sophia, may Allah be pleased because she was known for her bravery and courage. And her bravery was shown in the
during the time of conduct the Muslim army had gone to conduct and what happened is Sufi on the allottees with her along with the other women of the compact, the other Muslim women, they were put up the focus of firing, and Hassan bin savage being a poor companion, he has never taken a sword in his hand in his life. So he was given the job of looking after the women. And while they're hiding in the fortress of fari, one of the Jews was able to enter the phone and he was about to attack, the womenfolk of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And Sophia says or Hassan, I see that scoundrel coming, go and attack him before he hands out women, a standard saboteur Yasaka if I could do that,
I would have been 100 fighting the army. I would not have been over here looking after the women. saphira de la at this point, shows immense strength and bravery, she takes out her soul and she chops up the head of the shoe, and then she instructs Hassan Hassan going through the head back at the
Jewish, we are waiting to attack the Muslim women at the bottom of the foot. As scientists, we are sephirah. If I could do this also, I would have gone to the battlefield. So saphira delana throws the head back. And you should have been the head says that Sophia didn't Abdulmutallab was the first Muslim women to strike the head of a polytheist. These were people who are about to attack the Muslim women. And you see how our Muslim women are today, at the slightest of cockroaches and lizards, they get scared. So harmala the cats and dogs puts fear in the heart, the cockroaches and lizards puts fear in the heart. But look at the bravery of Sophia may Allah be pleased with her. And
this is my request to you, my brothers and sisters, when you bring up your children, your sons and your daughters, don't put fear in the heart for anything, not even you accept a lot, no other fear. You see, when you put fear of you, that fear will only be displayed in your presence. But in your absence, your child may do things because he knows you can't see it. But when you put fear of Allah in his heart, he knows wherever he is, Allah watches him. And another aspect of bravery of Sofia is that our women must be brave. And you should not put fear of darknesses and animals and cockroaches and lizards in your children in Sharla.
Time does not permit from me to talk about the courage of a beloved Zubair may Allah be pleased with him, but I just quickly wish to mention one incident of I don't think I have too much of time to say I'm about five minutes maybe I'll skip this inshallah. Maybe on a future occasion we'll talk about the courage of a beloved Zubair coming back to the door of the Prophet peace be upon him, we must go back and look at the soil for the Navy or the Treaty of Libya. This is a treaty, which many Muslims were confused about some of the Sahaba even question so a lot of them the likes of Malhotra went up to Rasul Allah and said, Why do we have to do such a treaty, which appears negative because the
treaty had a clause which said that anyone who embraces Islam from the Muslims and comes back to the Muslims, they will have to return them back to the market. However, if any of the Muslim apostasy leaves Islam and goes to the Medina goes back to the coupons, the coupons will not return them back. And naturally the Prophet sallallahu wasallam immediately faces questions from Omar Al Khattab and other companions. However, Sula, La Silla says that this is an instruction from Allah, and Allah will provide a success. And what happened is during the day via treaty, again, I'm just cutting it short. There was this incident where Abu jandal, who had embraced Islam, and he was the son of
civilian nehama, who was writing the who they were Treaty on behalf of the court, he was representing the koresh and his son had embraced Islam, and he came over there in front of the Muslims. And he says all Muslims, look at what the Quran says, done to me, take me back. And so he'll admit, the wicked father at that time, says, I'm 100 This is the time where you need to show whether you will be true to the treaty, give me back Abu jandal. And also lithotomy returns back Abu jandal. And many of the companions that disturb some of the companions have named this day, not as human would they be about your mo Abu chemdawg, the day of Abu jandal because of the pain that the
Muslims had when they had to pathway with Abu jandal. But look at the dollar of the prophets of Salaam over here. Even they they have to return a Muslim back to the McLaren's there was hair in it and the hair was that this man would now go back and do Dawa amongst the people. The objective from here is today we live in a society where we don't have Sharia laws everywhere. And we have to compromise in many places. But what we can surely do is dhara dava seems to be a dead thing today. Not everyone is involved in the activities of Dawa whatever we see of Dharma is still a very small, miniscule percentage of people involved of the total Muslim population. When we look at the life of
Muslims in Syria and other places. My appeal to the Muslims at this point of time would be take a lesson, go back and start doing the Dawa, which rasulillah salam would do to the people start doing our reach out to people talk to them about Islam and inshallah that will bring about changes.
I would like to end the session I would love that to the topic on issue of racism. Just one last topic with which I will end which is the importance of forgiveness.
Amongst one of the characteristics which the companions of the Prophet peace be upon him had was the importance of forgiveness, they would forgive people and this is something which is
Lacking today upon a patient or Salalah fellow sitting at masjidul, Nabi sallallahu, wasallam. And he says to that bow, a man shall enter and he is destined to Jannah. I, one of the companions came in some of the narrations. It's mentioned it was sad, may Allah be pleased with him. Saad walked in, again on the second letter to the law says, Philip says, through that door, a man shall enter and he is destined to Jannah and Sabra the Allahu came in again. And on the third occasion, he said, throw that bow, a man shall enter, and he is destined to enter Jannah and sobre, the Allahu came in again, on three different occasions, a beloved member of nella are sitting there, and he decides to go to
the house of sod. And he doesn't let him know what his objective is. He just comes and makes an excuse, and he says, I wish to stay with you for three days. His objective is, he wants to figure out what is it that Saab does, for which he is destined for Jana? Look at the concern of a beloved member of nella as one of the scholars of Muslim Ummah, he wants to find out, what is it that dotsavvy does, which makes him into agenda so that even I can do it? Should we not also adapt this lifestyle in our life? Should we also not have this quality, coming back to the incident of the last three days in the house of sauce? And he says, I did not notice anything extraordinary in the
worship of God. He did what we did, he did almost everything which we did. So he goes to solve on the fourth dancer facade. Let me tell you why I came here on three different occasions. So a lot of film said, the two are both of most of the lovely a man will enter and he's destined to gender. And on all three occasions you came in. And I wonder, I wonder why you have been arrested in general. So I came here to stay. But I didn't find anything extraordinary success. We use saw my life and this is my life, and I don't do anything extraordinary. And a beloved member is going back and then start calling him back. And he said, Obama, there is one thing which I of course do which I wish to share
with you. And he says, every night before I go to sleep, I forgive all days work transgressed against me, all those who've taken away mahak I forgive them, all those who complained against me, all those who insulted me, all those who criticized me, I forgive them. For this. Abdullah Assad is getting Jenna. Can you imagine something as small as forgiveness, which we don't even give importance to today, brothers and sisters. I wouldn't be surprised with today in the list of people and you and me are all culprit in this. We have broken ties with our family members. Brothers and sisters don't speak to each other for materialistic things. Parents and children. Parents don't even
know how the children look. They haven't even seen the grandchildren. Why? Because children broke ties with parents for issues of dunya as a hobby is getting an agenda for forgiveness. As Allah says in the for the humans not wish Allah to forgive you forgive others because Don't you wish Allah that? Don't you wish that Allah has forgive you? The Prophet peace be upon him said nothing happens to a person who forgives, except Allah alleviates the status. You and me don't forgive? Why? Because we think if we forget our status will come down. However the Prophet peace be upon him said something to the contrary. He said nothing happens to a person who forgets except that he will.
His status is elevated by their brothers and sisters. Time is run out and I have actually exceeded my time. I wish to leave you with one note. You may have your question and answers but once the session goes gets over, call up your parents. Call up your brothers. Call up your sisters. Call up your children. Call up your friends with whom you've broken your ties and remove ties for the sake of Allah. Because you and me both wish that our sins are forgiven. inshallah we can now open up the forum for question and answers. There's a formula Ferren for attending the session.
What would be the procedure for asking questions? I think sister Amina will let you know the procedure.
In terms of you could, you could have
your questions typed just type your questions in the chat and He will answer the questions for you and Sharla is applicaiton voted for the class ends up Lahaina pretending just have your questions typed in the box, you'll answer them
a question what your question is as a homemaker, what a woman can do to attain the companionship of Rasul Allah Solomon Jenna, one of the things which you can do is you can refer to the verse in the Quran.
So they won't be known. So number 23. There are the first 10 verses of the of that surah. And it mentioned certain actions that are Muslim must do. And that goes for all of us, by the way, not only for those who are homemakers, but it was for every Muslim that they must do in order to attain genitals are those that come into your other aspects as being someone who's busy with your kids? How do you take care of your kids, that itself can become a source for you to intergender remember one thing that you need to make sure that your child become a sacajawea for you after you leave. So how you bring up your child and Islam, how you train your children, what level of Islam you have
introduced them to. These are also part of Islam. It is not that you have to do certain a Baba which is outside the four walls of your house, the way you bring up your child, the way you take care of them, the way you nourish them, the way you are giving them the Huck these are the way you teach them about the basic etiquettes of Islam. These are all part of Islam which add up to your good deeds. And we all know that we need to just increase ourselves in good deeds and hope and pray for mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala so that we can enter Jannah be a beautiful wife understand our obligations that we have as a wife, we have certain rights and obligation as a wife, looking after
the family when the husband is away. All of this will also add up to your ibadah and worship if you do it as per the Quran and the Sunnah a Baba does not only mean reading the salah and Zakat, these are the more reading Salah is of course the highest form of Baba, but there are other aspects as well. And every little thing which you look into the life of rasulillah salam and learn from inshallah you will get the reward for a hope that answers your question inshallah.
Sokoloff lot cleaner. Our next question is from Shahada. She says a ceremony comm where the authentic sources for the companions biography there are two authentic sources I think that they're in my library right now which I have referred to and apart from the many books that you have from bottle salon, like the heroes of Islam, the best you can do is refer to the sea rasulillah salam like the seed of nectar which is the Sephiroth mano Barracuda which is one of the posts material Muhammad hecklers life of Muhammad Sal Salim is the you have been the moon split also saphira handlebar puri as far as the companions are concerned if the hazard Allah Allah Saba is there and
also ha Baba Ali, Allah to Allah is the inshallah These are some of the authentic sources and inshallah you can study the barrel Salaam as concise them and come out with short stories like the heroes of Islam, ministers of Prophet commanders around the Prophet child companions of the Prophet peace be upon him. These are some of the books which you can actually buy and read in shot. And for details, you can refer to the other list which I've mentioned
the sources by the way, not
just have a look at
the next question and do what was inside read the last one for like I mentioned that the holidays, I don't remember exactly what was the name of the name of the companion because in some of the others the name is not mentioned. While in the other it was mentioned as far as maybe what caused the uncle of the Prophet peace be upon him I'm sorry, I just dropped water so I'm just sorting it out. So I'll give an overview of Casa de Alon who saw
that most of the other set of hobbies which I have read it does not mention the name of the Companion of the Prophet peace be upon him. So but the objective is the incident is true the incident is authentic. So take the lesson from the incident which is the importance of forgiveness in sha Allah.
Now, our next question is from a moron Joey, what is our fine still does not want to speak to us even though we've attempted to do so. Well. Your job is to keep your doors open. Okay, if you go and knock on to the doors and they keep the door shut, they are answerable to Allah subhanho wa Taala but from your heart you see what the companion said, the companion said every night before I go to sleep, I forgive those who have transgressed against me. He did not say that I forgive me and I put up a condition that you also forgive me now that was nobody said so you'll forgive the person. If after that the friend doesn't open the door. You continue making go out to Allah subhanho wa Taala
and inshallah, when you're
Then comes back to you keep your eyes open. You see when harlot mineralia radi Allahu anhu
embraced Islam and came to Medina.
The moment he came to Rasul Allah, Salah, this was the time of the civil law Salam could have to college or college, you are the one because of whom we lost at all. You're the one who's whenever you struck at the Muslim you would stop you would screen and it Salima and Adi Solomon. However, this is not what casilla salam did. Why, because the moment somebody embraces Islam or the sins are forgiven, and he welcome Khalid by saying, the cream of Makkah has arrived. So my advice to users just Java is if you forgive the person, and continuously make sure that you keep your doors open and insha Allah, may Allah guide your other friend, also to forgive you and renew ties in sha Allah
sokola Iran this question, next question is from Daniela. She said this is the heading you mentioned nothing happens to a person who forgives except that Allah subhanaw metabolizes whatever carries inshallah, if you would need the references, kindly mail me and shall I'll get back to you with the references the time doesn't permit that I sit down and give you references now.
Just knock our hand. We have several questions, but we only have time for this last one. It's from a temple. It says how do we emulate these characters of the poor. So some you know the objective of doing this lecture is that you pick up the incidents from the light like like I picked up the incident. Now you introspect and understand what quality of that companion is reflecting, for example, the incident of Abdullah and the American arts which we just met,
sent to you, which was the importance of forgiveness. When we refer to this incident, we make a list of both weather models and lessons which we learn from the life of that companion. When we go to the life of ice and then go to that incident to you. We pick up what character of Ayesha Delano is coming up what when we go through the life of Abu Bakr Siddiq, we study and find out what is his character which is coming out once we have made this list. Now we start emulating those qualities that we have listed. And understand it's not an easy exercise, we will keep making mistakes and nobody has ever found every so often Adam commit sin, but the best is he will repent. So you will
commit sin there is no way out that you will say I will never sin, it's not possible. You we all will commit sin, but inshallah emulate them by listing off their characteristics which have stood out from the life and I hope inshallah that answers your question.
There's not a lot Hayden, Brother daanish and Zack a lot cleaner for those that have attended this session in Sharla. May you implement it in your lives throughout the time? inshallah, do you have any further questions? I do apologize. We did not have time to get to everyone's questions. Just feel free to contact brother I believe him and so Danish. His email is up on the screen.
