Ilaha Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala surefit MBA mursaleen Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira mavado. My dear brothers and sisters, Allah subhana wa Jalla Jalla Allah who mentioned

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

the bad man last night that I mentioned, those

00:00:28--> 00:00:36

people who are these special slaves of Allah subhanho data, who Allah subhanaw taala called.

00:00:38--> 00:01:12

Allah called them his slaves and this is the greatest honor that Allah Subhana Allah gives to those he loves, where he calls them his slaves, that word, a word of word of honor. For example, Rasulullah sallallahu, the greatest of the Wrath of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah subhanaw taala said, so Hannah Lizzie asabi Abdullah de Laila middle Masjid al Haram, Elon Musk, oxen levy barakallahu li Nuria hoomin Aya Tina inna who was Samuel Busey last Roger said

00:01:13--> 00:01:34

all glory and magnificence is for the one who took his slave I Budi middle must be the Hara lol must be the laksa from the masjid al haram to the master Luxor. And the rest of that. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us among his lives and to count us among his lives. This is the

00:01:36--> 00:02:03

the essence of success of this life. That we are resurrected in a state where we are called as a man not because that was our name in this dunya although Abdul Rahman and Abdullah are the two names that Rasulullah Salim said Allah loves the most he likes these two names the most Abdul Rahman and Abdullah

00:02:05--> 00:02:42

and if you name somebody up there Mr. Griese Don't call him Ron. This is the very common mistake we make and it's a very serious mistake aqeedah wise from the the aqeedah section of Akiva referring to the massive autolite Allah to call somebody whose name is often a man just rough man. And May Allah forgive us. We will do speakers we call the VCR man by era we had we actually had a shop I don't know whether he changed that name. But there was a tailoring shop which made sherwanis in Hyderabad

00:02:44--> 00:02:50

or delhi delhi we have gone for a different route so left side left do that.

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

So let's say to the guy

00:02:55--> 00:03:27

and the name of the shop now realize ramen and sons tailors a hotel I'm sure the man didn't name that deliberately. He's a Muslim, Mashallah, and I don't think he realized that but this is the so somebody should go and correct him and ask him to change his change the name of his shop because islamically that's not a permissible name. It is not hotevilla I mean, ramen and sons, what kind of thing is that? It is the ultimate of schilke the hola hotel. So

00:03:28--> 00:03:42

naming somebody Abdul Rahman and then call them after him. I don't call them just ramen, right? romanza ramen by very, very wrong way and of course we do that title which I know we do that without understanding. So we should understand.

00:03:43--> 00:03:49

Now Abdullah Allah subhanaw taala mentioned his Ubud and he said special slaves of Allah

00:03:50--> 00:04:12

and Allah subhanaw taala used this term specifically in South Africa and these are the ayat inshallah which we are looking at in terms of the lack of the Almighty because what must I do to become an offer Allah subhana wa tada special Abdo for to become an Abdul Rahman in essence in my actions, not just name.

00:04:14--> 00:04:48

So let's get into reservoir Eva Rahmani Lavina Yamuna out of the house. Now, what is the homegirl Jackie Luna Carlos Allah, Allah subhanaw taala said in this beautiful it very well. Allah say in the slaves of Allah, the Most Beneficent, those who walk on the earth, in humility and dignity, and when stupid people when the jehlen address them, or they curse them or they argue with them or whatever this is. They do not engage with those people.

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

In their address, they don't retaliate. They don't reply in kind people who speak

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

I remind myself and you let us remember this, that when we open our mouth, until we open our mouth, people can only see our appearance they don't know us from anybody else. But the moment we open our mouth,

00:05:16--> 00:06:05

then we are defining ourselves. Our speech is our signature, our speech is what is telling people who we are. We are telling people who we are, we are telling people who our parents are, we are telling people what our religion is telling people, what ideology we follow, we are telling people everything about ourselves, the moment we open our mouth, because it is our tongue, which is the, which can be our groom, or it can be a bull. Either way, right? For example, people say that it is better to keep your mouth shut, and be thought to be foolish, rather than open your mouth and remove all doubt. So it is better to just keep quiet. Let people think this man doesn't know anything.

00:06:05--> 00:06:48

That's okay. But when if you open your mouth and say something worthwhile, because if you open your mouth and say something stupid, then people know that you are stupid. I mean it, let them let them is believe that without proof without evidence, don't give them evidence of your stupidity. Instead of that reflect on it yourself and say, should I behave like this should I do this, as always amazes me the kind of people the kind of things they talk the sort of arguments they fall into. And all the motion and all the energy and the time that goes into that argument which is completely pointless, totally meaningless, totally foolish, achieves nothing other than buying travel for yourself.

00:06:49--> 00:07:01

So Allah subhanaw taala is mentioning, Marian, when Allah subhanaw taala is mentioning the qualities of his favorite slaves. Just think about also the sequence of that what is the number one quality that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned.

00:07:03--> 00:07:38

As I've said many times before, Allah did not mention worshiping Him because that is the given that is the fundamental The foundation is the person is not even worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, then we don't have to talk about anything else. So Allah is not mentioning the fact that Allah is not mentioning the hijos. And Allah is not mentioning the la hora does not mean that it's not important, it means that it is so supremely important that it need not even be mentioned, it is something which is which goes without saying. And so we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us among those who worship him constantly

00:07:39--> 00:08:19

and consistently, and with great sincerity. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept their worship. Now, in addition to that, when we look at the qualities of the believers, the number one quality that our last one that I mentioned, and Allah subhanaw taala praise is this particular quality, which is that the people that you will have, you are humble, to walk the earth in humility and dignity. And when the foolish people when stupid people address them, they try to talk to them, they try to curse them, they try to provoke them, they say Salaam Alaikum, this is Allah, they do not engage with them, they do not retaliate in kind.

00:08:20--> 00:08:58

People who are neither arrogant nor frivolous, people who are humble, good natured, good humoured, and dignified, who do not respond in kind, to the rude and though and to those who abuse them, those who try to involve them in foolish arguments, and so on and so forth. Rather, those people who demonstrate their upbringing, just as the rude people demonstrate their own, as I told you, when you open your mouth, that is the signature that is telling us where you come from, what you do, what you represent, and so on and so forth.

00:08:59--> 00:09:09

Interestingly, this is also an excellent way to save time and aggravation, and to turn the opinion of the world in your own favor.

00:09:10--> 00:09:19

As long as you are silent, the more the other person abuses you, the more the other person is raving and ranting, the more the

00:09:20--> 00:10:00

the opinion of the spectators will come in your favor, people will actually start responding on your behalf people will try to put it to shut the other person down. But the moment you open your mouth, then it becomes a tennis match you know that people are seeing who will win. So as long as you keep silent, you are the strongest of the two in that situation. If you are silent in the face of provocation and act with dignity, you you earn the respect of all reasonable and just people that they are the only people whose respect is worthy of anything.

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

People who are unreasonable and just Why do you care what they think that they think whatever they want. And Allah subhanaw taala then sends help

00:10:08--> 00:10:56

from places that you could not have imagined. And that help is far more useful for you, then. And it is far more painful for your tormentors than any retaliation that you could have done. Now this takes patience and it takes maturity, obviously. And then it takes a connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. It takes us a sense of complete confidence in yourself, you know, completely deep inside yourself that you are who you are. And you define who you are, you have not given the power to define you into the hands of somebody else. So it doesn't matter what the thing, let them think what they want, let them call you what they want, that is not who you are, you are who you believe you

00:10:56--> 00:11:01

are. And it is your speech and your actions which define you and this is the whole

00:11:02--> 00:11:09

the whole definition of confidence itself. Now, Allah subhanaw taala

00:11:12--> 00:11:53

opens the doors of good deeds for those who are abused, because they call to him. And they're all good deeds and the good deeds of others who talk about them behind their backs. So now imagine this is the blessing of Allah. If somebody is abusing you, if somebody is, you know, saying things to you that about what you don't deserve, then what is happening with their good deeds are being transferred into your account has opened the door for you to get good deeds, which you didn't even have to work for me. It's not something that came to you. with difficulty it's something which came to easily as a gift from somebody else.

00:11:54--> 00:11:58

Around a teller, for example, Allah subhanaw taala said

00:11:59--> 00:12:17

was when he said to Mr. seller, this is the advice of Allah subhanaw taala Allah said was where Allah Maya, who Luna wa has your home hedger and jameelah. Was Ernie well bukovina will in Amity mama Helen kalila in Medina and lo Raja Hema

00:12:19--> 00:12:52

what Armando said you were born Allah, Allah subhanaw taala sir and be patient and have sumeria Bahama sallallahu Sallam with what they see, and, and go away from them, keep away from them in a good way. hadron jameelah Allah, Allah didn't say, curse them or beat the noise as you move away. Just remove them, remove yourself from them. And then Allah subhanaw taala is sounding a warning and Allah said and Leave me Leave me alone to deal with them.

00:12:54--> 00:13:00

Right those who deny you and those who are in possession of good things of life.

00:13:02--> 00:13:03

This is the

00:13:04--> 00:13:18

How many times have we seen people who have a little bit of wealth and a little bit of property and so on. And because of that it goes to the head. They were the arrogant they curse people they abuse people they they like I mean, it's like one child who has come into the

00:13:19--> 00:13:55

every morning the shepherd wakes up and comes out of his house and people are watching out today who is he going to curse? What is he going to do? Where is he going to scream wow you know what abuse. This is the nature of some people may Allah protect themselves from themselves with Allah saying such people Lessing Let me deal with them. Leave me to deal with them. And those who are in possession of good things of life, they have it because I gave it to them and I can take it away and give them respect for a while he says naturalism is being told, leave them alone just forget about them for a while. And then unless is very early with us, our change to bind them in a raging fire

00:13:55--> 00:14:40

and a food that talks in a painful Trabant. Allah is promising his eyes that for people like that, may Allah protect us from being among people like that, especially I want you and I remind you do not abuse those who have less power than yourself. Right? If you feel so powerful, go and abuse the ruler of your country who is whichever it is who is being oppressive, right? You think you're so powerful. Go Go and and try to abuse you know, a police officer who is doing something which is wrong, try and do that. Go and fight somebody who is big who's worth fighting. Instead of that you don't you you in front of that police officer in front of the you have the ruler, you are like, You

00:14:40--> 00:15:00

are like a mouse, you're like a doormat. You're lying there and saying please wipe your boots on my face. But when it comes to your servants when it comes to people who work for you, when it comes to poor people, you become a big chair or you become a big tiger, right? Very, very powerful. Then you can curse and you can do whatever you want. Just because

00:15:00--> 00:15:25

That person cannot retaliate. Remember, that person has Allah subhanaw taala behind him, that person cannot retaliate and therefore Allah will retaliate on his behalf. So be very careful. I also say say this to those people who indulge in domestic abuse, one of the big problems today with all these lockdown and so on and so forth, is a spike in domestic abuse. People men come men are stuck at home. So they think that now they can abuse their wives.

00:15:26--> 00:15:53

You know, however they want people who are who are who are accustomed to domestic abuse, that for what she used to fear the evening because when the husband came home, that he would abuse her he would beat her he would cursor. Now he doesn't have to fear the evening because he is there all the time. So the the amount of abuse that she's getting has multiplied in Allah when Allah Raja my brothers, sisters, please understand, when you are abusing that woman, That woman is a Abdolfattah.

00:15:55--> 00:16:10

She is an ABS of Allah and rasulillah salam said Allah subhanho wa Taala hears the voice of the oppressor, who is making dua and voice of the oppressed, the person who's being oppressed, Allah hears his or her voice, even as a person is not a Muslim.

00:16:12--> 00:16:53

When that person is calling to Allah, when the person is not even a Muslim is not even calling to Allah by name is calling to whatever God he worships. But there is only one word one God there is only one rub geladeira one that is Allah. So no matter how they call, Allah subhanaw taala hears that and Allah will retaliate. Please understand, fear the day when your wife who used to abuse raises up our hands and say, Allah, Oh Allah relieve me from this mercy but relieve me from this from this from this person and wait for the love of Allah and then it will not it will not end with your device in this world. Your device will open the door for that for you forever and ever.

00:16:54--> 00:17:14

Fear Allah subhanho wa Taala do not abuse your your spouses do not abuse your wives do not abuse your children, do not abuse your servants, treat them with respect they deserve that you are not doing them any favor. They are the a bag of Allah, they are not your bag. They are not your slaves, they are the slaves of Allah.

00:17:16--> 00:17:20

And as Allah subhanaw taala, mentioned in these Ayat of surah, Muzammil

00:17:22--> 00:17:26

Allah said leave them to me yahama sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:17:27--> 00:17:38

you don't retaliate? You don't say anything. Don't spoil your tongue by saying anything wrong. Not that I wish I would have done it anyway. But allies is tg is teaching us through His column, which is W la sala.

00:17:41--> 00:17:46

So I'm speaking specifically do those who indulge in domestic abuse?

00:17:47--> 00:17:57

Right now as you listen to this, put this on hold, go and apologize. Go and seek forgiveness from your wife, from your children from your servants.

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

From all those people you abused, and abuse, go and seek their forgiveness go and say Please forgive me.

00:18:09--> 00:18:16

I am sorry, I apologize and genuinely feel that, that that regret in your heart.

00:18:17--> 00:18:34

Because if you don't seek their forgiveness, if they do not forgive you, it doesn't matter. Even if you ask Allah for forgiveness, Allah will not forgive you. Because as soon as a seller told us that Allah does not forgive the person until the one he wronged forgives him first.

00:18:35--> 00:18:42

So seek the forgiveness of the person you have wronged and have been wronging for for such a long time.

00:18:47--> 00:18:52

And ask them to forgive you beg them to forgive you fall at their feet and beg them to forgive.

00:18:54--> 00:19:03

Because remember the punishment of Allah. When that comes, nothing can stop it. When that start, when that starts,

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

it will not end.

00:19:08--> 00:19:24

Allah subhanaw taala declared war on only two kinds of people. Those who travel is Olia, the man and those who deal with interest. May Allah subhanaw taala save us from the evil of ourselves.

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

This patience in the face of grave provocation, I'm talking to the people who have to face this abuse. This patient in the face of grave provocation is one of the most significant qualities of a solo saucer, which not only gave him his amazing reputation

00:19:47--> 00:19:51

for being tolerant for being strong for being powerful.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

But it was a huge asset for him in all his work

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

Imagine if he had reacted to the provocation from the Croatian massacre or from the provocation of the moroccon. in Medina. Imagine if he had reacted to the provocation from Sofia.

00:20:16--> 00:20:23

Even when he was brought to him, when Rasulullah sallallahu was in the middle of his army on the night before for Tomica

00:20:25--> 00:21:15

you know the story I was aware and one of his companions, they set out on a spying mission to gather intelligence about the army besieging Makkah, but they got captured by the, by the sculpts, the Muslim scouts. So Allah bazmee, another Butera vellano, he saved the life of Sophia, he would have been killed. But Allah boss came there and he took charge of Abu Sofia. And he put him he actually mounted him on rasulillah salam mount, and he covered he put a cover on travel so people didn't recognize him. And he took him to a solo licensor, there, he said to him, accept Islam, so that you will be forgiven for all the crimes you committed against them and Muslims. I wasn't even there, he

00:21:15--> 00:21:25

refused. And he said, I will accept that there is nobody worthy of worship except Allah. But I cannot accept that Mohammed Salah Salam is the Messenger of Allah.

00:21:26--> 00:21:27

Now I will

00:21:28--> 00:21:31

throw up his hands. And he said, I cannot save you.

00:21:33--> 00:21:49

Right? I you are on your own. I cannot save you. But Rosaura salon recognized a very special quality that was clear, which was the quality of integrity. Because here was a man who had known in fact, in his heart, he had no hypocrisy, and he was a man who was not afraid. So

00:21:51--> 00:22:06

recognize these two very, very important qualities. One is courage. And the other one is integrity. So the man refused to tell a lie. He did not believe that Rosaura, Salah was the Messenger of Allah. So he said, I will not say it because I don't believe it.

00:22:07--> 00:22:10

Unlike the Buddha Kuhn of

00:22:11--> 00:23:03

Medina, right, unlike by being saloon, for example, who did not believe that Russell Russell Russell was the messenger but he kept saying it, but never did that Abu fianza I don't believe so, I will not speak and he was not afraid of death, because he knew that you know, this could result in him being executed, but he was not afraid of death as soon as possible. And this is the this is the the beauty and the quality of Mohammed Salah that he recognized good things even in his worst enemies. Remember at that time, the time that we are talking about Fatah, maka, who was the number one worst enemy of our souls or Salah Abu sufian. There was nobody who had done as much as abortion had done

00:23:03--> 00:23:10

to cause harm to the solar system. There was no one who had tried so hard to kill the solar system.

00:23:11--> 00:23:19

Nobody Abuja was the ringleader. He was the commander of all the armies which attacked Medina

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

yet

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

even though this man was the number one enemy of Rasulullah Salah, think about that, what kind of

00:23:31--> 00:23:41

majority is it? What kind of modalities to recognize the strengths and recognize the good in your enemies and to support that.

00:23:43--> 00:24:04

As soon as a solemn recognized the good in Abu sufian which was his integrity, which was his sincerity, and which was his courage. Here was a man who had integrity and he was a man who had courage, he was not afraid. So Rasulullah Serrano did not order his execution. Instead, he said to our boss, he said, Take him to that hill, he showed him a hill

00:24:05--> 00:24:22

and let him see the army so that he realizes that resistance and trying to fight this army is futile. The horses do not have the power to do that. All that's going to happen is bloodshed and I don't want bloodshed. The sorceress Alamo was trying to save his enemies.

00:24:23--> 00:24:30

He's not trying to say his friends were safe. I mean, they had the power they had an army of 10,000 soldiers there was no one in that place was going to beat them.

00:24:31--> 00:24:39

So whose lives is he trying to save? He's trying to save the lives of those who tortured him who killed his his children

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

who killed his companions

00:24:43--> 00:24:54

and not for not for a short time for 13 years. And then they continued that even though rasuna Saracen have left the place and went away to Medina, they did not leave him in peace, even in Madeira.

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

Then it's okay that is gone. That's over. No, they they continue

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

They continue to add us him they continue to harass his companions, they attack Medina, they continue to try to harm him and to kill him. Such people, what is the behavior? What is the retaliatory behavior of the prophet SAW Selim? He's trying to save their lives.

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

He's trying to save their lives. So he says to on a bus or Delano he says take a bus fare to that hill, let him see the army.

00:25:26--> 00:25:41

So he can go and tell his people No, don't fight his army because you will only kill yourself nothing is gonna happen if you fight the army then you will die. And Warhammer savasana does not want you to die. So he's trying to save the lives of his enemies. Right.

00:25:43--> 00:25:46

So, this was done, and

00:25:47--> 00:25:56

I was then ordered his followers not to try to prevent the army of resources from from entering Makkah.

00:25:58--> 00:26:24

Now think about the other example in Obi Wan, Solow, the head of the panopticon, he tried every trick in the book, to sabotage the mission of Resources Center, while pretending to be his friend. He did that deliberately. He did things deliberately. He did things clandestinely, he did things. You know, of course, all he did was delivered, but some was Clinton Stein, some was, was done openly.

00:26:27--> 00:26:44

Take the case, in the time of the Battle of Ohio, he brought his soldiers 300 of the coverage and join the army of resources going out to battle. But before they could reach out halfway there, he withdrew, seriously depleting the Muslim army,

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

by as much as one third.

00:26:49--> 00:27:01

So this was an act of open treason, which under any law, at any time, could rightfully have resulted in execution. But rasulillah salam did not react.

00:27:03--> 00:27:17

Not only did he not react when women salute, did this, but he did not even react when as one of the reasons for this one as a result of this act of treason. The Muslims lost the battle of a heart.

00:27:19--> 00:27:44

If though if they had 300 extra soldiers, then perhaps they would not have lost that battle. They lost the battle of a heartbeat resulted in the Shahada of 70 of the Sahaba including Hamza bin Abdullah Abu Talib, the dearest friend and, and Uncle Sam, who was his contemporary who was his age, and who was one of the greatest of his supporters.

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

Right.

00:27:50--> 00:27:56

And then think about this, the moon Africa and then taunted the Muslims who returned from the battle

00:27:58--> 00:28:14

and said that if you hadn't gone in Abu Hamza, Mohammed did to you, and because of him, you lost this and you lost so many people, and so on and so forth. And they didn't mention the fact that they were the reason why the loss happened in the first place. All of this happened.

00:28:15--> 00:28:33

But Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam did not react, he did not retaliate, he did not react, he did not even say anything. He stayed with his grief, he stayed with an image server with dignity and that is the example that we have before us.

00:28:34--> 00:29:01

Now, at a personal level, there were many in Mk. At the time when we are talking about which is the Fatah maka type, who had abused and reviled and maligned Rosa Rosa Sullivan caused him untold pain. Right. Some were killed in the Battle of brotherhood. Many were in Makkah, when rasulillah salam conquered it yet he did not take revenge on any of them.

00:29:02--> 00:29:04

The cherry on the cake was

00:29:05--> 00:29:18

that Rosaura solemn, did not even seek compensation for it about revenge and punishing he did not even see compensation for the property that he lost and the property that he Sahaba lost.

00:29:21--> 00:29:32

Think about that. I mean, what does it take? What kind of heart is it, which accepts and forgives people like this?

00:29:35--> 00:29:50

To the gifts of Allah she killed Hamza will Abdul Mutallab or the Allahu anhu ma both Allah she and Hamza deliver Sahaba Salah but at the time we were talking about Alba she was not Muslim.

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

He came to resources seldom and accepted Islam. There was a result of asked him if he was the man who had killed his uncle and brother

00:30:00--> 00:30:41

And one of his biggest supporters and friends as I mentioned, and why she told him the story. Rosaura, Sir, listen with tears running down his cheeks. And then he said to vashi when you come into my mouth, just sit to one side, because looking at you, renews by grief about Hamza. Let's think about it. What kind of a statement is that? Right? He didn't say why she now you know, I am saying, I'm not killing you. I'm not ordering your execution. But now just get out from here. Go away. Don't ever come in front of me. Do not come to my image list. I don't ever want to see you again. Because you have killed my uncle and you caused me so much of pain. No, he didn't say any of

00:30:41--> 00:30:41

that.

00:30:42--> 00:30:56

He did not say any of that. He did not tell all vashi radi Allahu anhu not to come in his madness. He did not deprive al Bashir of Ilan who, from his company, from the back of his company.

00:30:58--> 00:31:20

Right? He didn't he didn't deprive him. He just told him. He's talking about himself. He's not talking about when he says to him, when you come sit to one side, sit in a sit in a place where I don't directly Look at you. And that's not because of you. It's not because I don't like your face. It does. It's because when I look at you, I remember Hamza and that renews the wound in my heart

00:31:22--> 00:31:23

that renews my grief.

00:31:25--> 00:31:35

What kind of is one I mean, I know I that's why Sierra is my absolutely number one favorite topic. In Islam, Allah subhanaw taala put his love for the zero.

00:31:39--> 00:31:49

Every time I read it, I mean, it's the same Sierra I think about that. It's not that I'm discovering some great new things or that I have sources to to, you know, information from some

00:31:50--> 00:32:13

from from someplace which nobody else had noted the same thing, which we are reading, and we read again and again, but is the beauty of the life of Amazon seller. The more you read it, the more Allah opens the removes the secrets, the wall opens the doors, which enable us to recognize ourselves to read the Sierra is like looking in a mirror. It's in simultaneously. It's a very

00:32:15--> 00:32:20

intimidating experience. Because when I look in the mirror, what do you think I see the mirror of no officers and

00:32:22--> 00:32:30

I am amazed that Allah has even allowed me to do that to look at the mirror which has absolutely no resemblance whatsoever. May Allah forgive me and melasma Allah.

00:32:32--> 00:32:52

May Allah ignore that, and and still Forgive me. But the on the other hand, it's such a powerful and such an invigorating and such a such a, you know, comforting thing to read this era of Rosaura citizen read his biography and say, This is the man I'm following.

00:32:53--> 00:33:00

This is the man I'm following Alhamdulillah when you follow a great leader, it reflects on yourself.

00:33:01--> 00:33:17

So in that sense, by association, you are saying that I am a good person because I follow ourselves no matter what I do, right? I'm not saying Forgive me, May Allah forgive me for that I asked you. But I'm saying that no matter what, I am a follower of Mohammed. So there might be something good in me.

00:33:19--> 00:33:22

Because Allah made me a follower of hammer saluda Harrison

00:33:24--> 00:33:27

and this applies to every single one of us right hamdulillah

00:33:29--> 00:33:33

Allahumma salli, ala Sayyidina, Muhammad wa ala Muhammad, Allah, Allah, Allah,

00:33:34--> 00:33:40

Allah, Allah Muhammad, Allah Allah Mohammed kawartha Allah Rahim Allah Reba in the community,

00:33:43--> 00:34:01

my brothers sisters, this is the this is the nature of our solar system. So he says to Allah, she sit to the side when you come to my mother is and so that I, my my, my grief, does not get renewed when I see your face.

00:34:02--> 00:34:22

Now, the last incident that I want to narrate for you, for this class, is once again from the Sierra, where as soon as a Salam was sitting with one of his companions, with some of his companions, and our Walker senior galana was with him, as usual, Mr. entered, and that man saw our city

00:34:23--> 00:34:41

and he had, you know, whatever he had, was what the history of that was, but the man started to shout at Abubakar Delano and to yell at him and to abuse him. And this whole thing was happening in the presence of rasuna.

00:34:43--> 00:34:59

Now the seven you know, they they took their cue from our sources Allah, so nobody said anything to that person who was yelling at our worker acidic or the alano. Because as soon as Hassan himself was silent, so imagine the scene. What a straight

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

Seen it is here is Abu Bakar the best friend of Rasulullah sallam,

00:35:05--> 00:35:11

he is being abused in the presence of resources and corruptions nothing

00:35:13--> 00:35:16

is sitting silently. And not only is he sitting silently,

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

but there was a slight smile on his face.

00:35:26--> 00:35:29

Meanwhile, this man continues his abuse

00:35:32--> 00:35:41

imagine a situation so when this man is abusing him, if you if I was in that place, what would I do? The first thing I would do is I would look at your solar system

00:35:43--> 00:35:48

and see what you know I hear is a man yelling at me screaming at me, this is your budget this

00:35:49--> 00:35:54

I am looking at you to say well, you know, please say something please do something.

00:35:55--> 00:35:56

Save me

00:35:58--> 00:35:59

and your friends.

00:36:00--> 00:36:05

What is is he when he looks at the salon, he sees the profits or loss and I'm sitting there

00:36:07--> 00:36:10

with a slight smile on his blessed face.

00:36:13--> 00:36:16

Well, Joe took this

00:36:17--> 00:36:23

abuse for as long as long as he could take it and then he couldn't take it anymore. So he retaliated.

00:36:25--> 00:36:31

When he retaliated Rasul Allah is a wrestler immediately stood up and walked away.

00:36:33--> 00:36:33

Now,

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

obviously,

00:36:38--> 00:36:39

our currency

00:36:40--> 00:36:42

was very, very upset.

00:36:43--> 00:36:49

And he is not observed so much with what the man was saying he is upset because it was left.

00:36:50--> 00:37:18

So here is a situation where when this man is abusing him, Rasulullah salon does not say anything. He doesn't criticize the man he doesn't stop that abuse, on the contrary, is sitting there with a smile on his blessed countenance and the moment Abu Bakr Siddiq retaliates. alano no matter how justified he may have been in retaliating, because after all, he took that abuse for so long. The moment he opened his mouth, the moment he retaliates. rasulillah

00:37:20--> 00:37:29

stands up and he walks away, which is obviously a sign of disapproval of what our workers who did

00:37:31--> 00:37:55

so now if you are a displaced, would you not feel justified in feeling bad about this? And would you be justified in feeling that somehow you have been wronged and that you have been treated unjustly isn't it I mean, isn't that what you would think so our workers are no forgot about the man abusing him he got up and followed me in tears in his eyes. He said Yasser Allah What did I do wrong?

00:37:56--> 00:38:05

Please What did I do wrong? Here is his man who was abusing me for all this time and you were there you did not stop the man. On the other end you are smiling.

00:38:07--> 00:38:22

And when I just opened my mouth, I said one word one word. And you're so like me abusing me for so long? I didn't have a right to did I not have a right to say anything at all to him. The moment I said one word, you got up and walked away, what did I do wrong? And I

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

was weeping is very upset. This is the Rasul of Allah, this is not just any other person. This is the Rasul of Allah if he is this, if he dislikes what you have done, then you can be sure that Allah subhana wa Taala dislikes what you have done

00:38:39--> 00:38:44

over you to Rasul Allah, Allah. Allah said, the one was obeyed the messenger has obeyed Allah.

00:38:46--> 00:38:56

So if you disobey the messenger, you are disobeying Allah. If the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam is displeased with you, then Allah is displeased with you make no mistake about this.

00:38:58--> 00:39:03

So obviously a workers in the salon who is very concerned is very upset.

00:39:04--> 00:39:06

So Allah is Allah Sallam said to him.

00:39:08--> 00:39:26

Now think about that. So Allah Salah Salem said to him, yeah, Baba, as long as the man was abusing you, and you were silent, there was an angel, answering the man and praying for your forgiveness. Allah subhanaw taala appointed an angel to retaliate on your behalf.

00:39:28--> 00:39:35

You couldn't see that, but this is part of the reality of the place. Allah subhanaw taala gave that we shall have the ability to see

00:39:36--> 00:39:59

as much of what is not visible perceivable as Allah wished. And so there is a certain could see those angels. So he says, as long as you were silent, that man was abusing you. As long as you were silent. There was an angel who was speaking on your behalf. He was retaliating against that man, and he was praying for your forgiveness. He said the moment you open your mouth, the moment you return.

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

hated the angel left. And when the angel left. So did I.

00:40:06--> 00:40:08

Why must I sit there When the angels have gone?

00:40:11--> 00:40:18

I know this is a tough standard. There's no doubt about that. This is a tough standard, but then the rewards are huge. Tell me what would you pay?

00:40:19--> 00:40:24

I'm sitting here in America, what would you pay for a mansion on Sunset Boulevard?

00:40:26--> 00:40:35

In which is in Los Angeles from Hollywood to Malibu Beach, which is the, you know, perhaps the number one

00:40:36--> 00:40:51

real estate location in America. So what would you What would you pay? If somebody wins? You had the money, right? You have the money, you won't buy a house, and somebody hears his mansion for sale on Sunset Boulevard, and you have the money to pay? What would you be willing to pay?

00:40:54--> 00:41:05

yourself that the only benefit of that family house, a mansion in Malibu Beach, is that it will make leaving this dunya that much more difficult for you.

00:41:11--> 00:41:15

Instead of that, ask yourself, What are you willing to pay for a house in general?

00:41:19--> 00:41:19

Right?

00:41:21--> 00:41:24

Because for us, Sunset Boulevard is more real than Jenna.

00:41:26--> 00:41:32

Even though most of us have not seen Sunset Boulevard, and probably never will.

00:41:35--> 00:41:42

But because it's mentioned over and over again. It's very real to us. But remember,

00:41:44--> 00:41:45

every one of us will see Jana.

00:41:46--> 00:41:53

But whether it is a drive by view, or to live in it is the question.

00:41:55--> 00:41:56

And that is what we need to choose.

00:41:58--> 00:42:13

Do you want to see Jenna as soon as Hassan said, when the person is in the grave? And he answers or fails to answer the questions the grave, the Malacca will open a window and if he has answered the questions correctly, and May Allah make all of us among them.

00:42:15--> 00:42:26

The Malaga will open a window in the grave and they will show him the Hellfire and say that is where you could have been but Allah protected you from that and they shut the window and then they open the window into Gen and they said this is where you are going.

00:42:27--> 00:42:42

And as Adam said a beautiful breeze will grow from the agenda into the grave May Allah make us all those May Allah give this to all those who have gone ahead of us all our elders, may Allah subhanaw taala make all their who wore gardens from the gardens of gentlemen.

00:42:44--> 00:43:11

But the contrary is also true that the angel will open the window into agenda and say this is where you could have been. And you chose differently. We chose to disobey Allah you chose to come and chill you chose to challenge Allah subhanaw taala you chose to follow your naps and everybody else except Allah subhanaw taala so this is where you could have been here is a drive by view take a look window shot, but this is where you are going which is the fire of jahannam and the other when the timer starts. May Allah protect us from that.

00:43:14--> 00:43:18

So what did I say when I when I'm talking about the house in general?

00:43:19--> 00:43:40

Abu Omar Obama bin Alba he wrote the Allahu anhu he reported that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said I guarantee a house in Jannah for the one who gives up arguing, even if he's right. And I guarantee a house in the middle of Jana who abandons lying even for the sake of fun

00:43:42--> 00:43:53

as a joke, and he said i i guarantee a house in the highest part of Jana for the one who has good manners, who has good luck and decision sooner without

00:43:54--> 00:43:55

sisters.

00:43:57--> 00:44:35

We will go to the next class more of this in the next class inshallah. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept our coming and accept our classes and accept our learning and teaching. We ask Allah to make us worthy of being the oma of Mohammed Salah salah and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to take us in a state of evil to keep us in a state of human will is to come up with the steadfastness and to take us in that state. When he is pleased with us was aloha Alana will carry Hualalai he was savage made erotica. hamara Amina hamdulillah Bellamy was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
