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

salatu salam ala Gambia while he was having

00:00:12--> 00:00:15

my dear brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato

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

hamdulillah vizilite. Allah We are gathered here to

00:00:21--> 00:00:23

share some thoughts about

00:00:26--> 00:00:30

the first of the cell of the cell of the cell when

00:00:31--> 00:00:34

the Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

Why must we know about this however,

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

you must know about the Sahaba is lambda had a much mind because we owe our Deen to them.

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

Zola is seldom received deliver revelation

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

and he communicated it to a Sahaba.

00:00:54--> 00:01:04

And through them, and because of their questions, and because of their understanding, and because of their practice. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen this Deen reached us Alhamdulillah.

00:01:08--> 00:01:09

My brothers and sisters,

00:01:10--> 00:01:15

Allah subhanho wa sallam, he said that Allah has permitted envy

00:01:16--> 00:01:17

only into cases.

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

Allah is permitted envy only in two cases.

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

One is when somebody

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

has knowledge.

00:01:31--> 00:01:34

And he spends his knowledge in the battle Hall is one of them.

00:01:36--> 00:01:53

And the second one is, when the person has wealth, and the person spends his wealth in the battle, he was one of them, to have envy to envy such people and say, I wish I was like this is dies, it is permissible.

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

Other than these two cases, envy is not permissible for anybody. In any case. I'm saying this because

00:02:01--> 00:02:06

the Sahaba is Lara la mudvayne are truly people that we should anyone

00:02:09--> 00:02:27

to study the Sahaba stories of the Sahaba I remind myself when you do not think about them as just some stories. These are stories, this is history. There is no mythology in Islam. There's no imaginary stuff in Islam, it's all fact recorded fact.

00:02:28--> 00:02:30

But that is not even the reason why we study that.

00:02:31--> 00:02:38

We study the history of the Sabbath, so that we develop this desire to be like them,

00:02:40--> 00:03:00

to be like them to be in their company on the Day of Judgment. Insha Allah, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us this, because there is no company that is better than the company Sahaba and I did not say that sola sola Sallam said this, he said Cairo Peroni Kearney, sama sama la Vina yo Luna home

00:03:02--> 00:03:09

name is Ella Salim said the best generation is my generation. Who is the generation the Sahaba of Hamas, Allah Allah

00:03:14--> 00:03:20

and His rupt jelajah Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala What did he say about this? I have

00:03:21--> 00:03:36

Allah subhanaw taala said in this in the ayat of Surah Tauba Allah subhanaw taala zero Salah una una manera mohajir in our answer, well, Xena Hassan, radi Allahu Allah.

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

See the

00:03:41--> 00:03:45

I always say how can we truly thank Allah subhanaw taala

00:03:46--> 00:03:52

because the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala is such that it beats the imagination.

00:03:53--> 00:03:55

And that's one of the thing Asahi upon Allah Allah.

00:03:56--> 00:03:59

The people who raced ahead,

00:04:01--> 00:04:02

they were the first

00:04:03--> 00:04:09

and first among the first, Savio minella valo. Asahi who

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

may or may not Mahajan, one answer.

00:04:15--> 00:04:27

Think about this ayah Allah subhanaw taala said Asahi una una manera de novo alonza de la vena cava on base rhodiola on home run.

00:04:29--> 00:04:43

Allison sent this column for us to reflect on it. So ask yourself this question. If Allah subhanaw taala had said a Savonarola, Verona Marina wants Sharia law one on one on one.

00:04:45--> 00:04:48

If Allah had not said, When does he know?

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

If Allah had simply said, the first of the first among the Mahajan annoncer, Allah is pleased with them they are pleased with Allah. grammatically it would be correct

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

In a sense of justice, that would be correct.

00:05:03--> 00:05:09

And all of us, for us the door to be with them would be shut.

00:05:11--> 00:05:13

Allah is pleased with the size of our class.

00:05:14--> 00:05:17

So what about me? What about you nothing about it.

00:05:18--> 00:05:19

How do you

00:05:20--> 00:05:24

how do you find your geladeira? Who? Who did not say that?

00:05:26--> 00:05:33

He said Allah Xena. I said azhagu whom Allah Varun Amina Mohammed Irina, one Ansari, one, Xena

00:05:36--> 00:05:43

and those who follow them in excellence and those who follow them in the sun, until when?

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

Until the day of judgment, how do you thank Allah

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

for keeping that door open?

00:05:54--> 00:05:55

For anyone

00:05:57--> 00:06:12

who comes hundreds of years 1000s of years after the zavio the law passed away, but who then more than lives on the lives of the saxophone Allah, Allah.

00:06:14--> 00:06:16

People who come who want to be with the Sahaba versus

00:06:18--> 00:06:26

people who come who want to be like the Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu people who study the life of Solomon tried to become like that.

00:06:29--> 00:06:30

Allah left the door open for them.

00:06:31--> 00:06:37

And what Allah Allah said you will be with them or they allow on what

00:06:38--> 00:06:41

Allah was pleased with them, and they are pleased with Allah.

00:06:42--> 00:06:44

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us among those

00:06:46--> 00:06:47

who will be counted with the Salah.

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

Make Up For this,

00:06:53--> 00:06:58

make dua for this and then make some effort inshallah. Allah subhanaw taala puts Baraka in the effort,

00:07:00--> 00:07:01

Allah left the door open for us.

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

So, we had to be the Sahaba revival like element name, because this generation

00:07:09--> 00:07:18

there are many things about this generation which distinguish them which raise them. The rejections Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:19--> 00:07:25

which made them the preferred generation. But is one thing which is unique about this generation.

00:07:26--> 00:07:35

There are many people in this, Deen Alhamdulillah, who came after the Sahaba and were also very pious people.

00:07:36--> 00:07:41

Obviously, they do not get with the Raja of the Sahaba because the damage of the Sabbath is based on

00:07:43--> 00:07:50

being in the company often seeing aerosolized SLM in a state of human and dying in a state of human.

00:07:51--> 00:07:55

We don't see seeing because there was ABA. We're also blind, but they were in the company, and

00:07:56--> 00:08:12

they did not actually see wrestlers wrestling, but they were Sahaba. Because people often for example, where there was ABA because they accepted Islam, and they died on Islam, and they lived in a company of abusers. And of course, those who sought asylum that's a special there is a for them, they are the Sahaba.

00:08:15--> 00:08:24

What I'm not talking about them, I'm talking about the uniqueness of this generation in one particular way, which no one else after them

00:08:26--> 00:08:37

can reach that level of uniqueness. And that uniqueness is that these people, the Sahaba which are seldom were witness to the revelation of the Quran.

00:08:40--> 00:08:44

In some cases, they actually saw Jabari really solid, you know, human form.

00:08:45--> 00:08:55

They heard his voice. In other cases, they did not see him but they knew the revelation had come and they saw so those are in a state of receiving the revelation.

00:08:58--> 00:09:15

I think it's a story about Abdullah Masuda. Delano is zero sola Salam was lying on my thigh he was lying. His head blushed head was on my thigh when he started receiving revelation. And he thought and he said that the way it was so tremendous, I thought my leg would break.

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

Who has this?

00:09:22--> 00:09:23

Who has this privilege

00:09:27--> 00:09:28

that the Nabhi

00:09:30--> 00:09:32

is lying with his head in your lap. I

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

envy them, loves them for the sake of Allah

00:09:42--> 00:09:43

want to be like them?

00:09:45--> 00:09:46

So this generation

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

was a generation which was

00:09:51--> 00:09:53

witness to the revelation of the Quran.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

I imagine this version. The Sahaba is one like la Medina praying Salah behind

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

We shall sell them

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

and when the soul is Allah Salam is reciting and I had to the forum the Salah, behind him are listening to the eyes and I remember where I was. I remember this I

00:10:13--> 00:10:14

came in this situation

00:10:15--> 00:10:18

for example as the ayah which I decided in other

00:10:19--> 00:10:31

words where Allah subhanaw taala said Allah Murphy Swati mama will want you to boo ma v fusi como tofu who has a boo boo me Hill

00:10:33--> 00:10:33

for yo

00:10:36--> 00:10:44

yo my shot a wallow wanna Polish a copy?

00:10:46--> 00:10:50

Put yourself in that situation Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said in the eye of

00:10:51--> 00:10:57

the Sahaba standing behind him and they remember what happened when this ayah was revealed.

00:10:58--> 00:11:25

And what happened when this ad was revealed we know this from the Alibaba news all of the ayat which we study but we are not witness to those as Bab we have heard about those as Baba knows or we have read about the as Babu we were not there at the time of the zoo. But the Sahaba were there at the time of the new zoo. What will they What are they thinking when they are standing behind the powers on a solemn when he's deciding this ayah they are remembering the time when Allah subhanaw taala revealed this ayah

00:11:27--> 00:11:28

and abora Viola

00:11:30--> 00:11:35

and even basil Delano they say that this is it was so heavy on the Sahaba

00:11:37--> 00:11:54

It was so heavy on the Sahaba because Allah subhanaw taala said whatever is in the heavens and the earth belongs to Allah subhanho danijela gelato and he can do whatever he wants. But what Allah Coolidge in Kaduna, he has the authority and the power to do whatever he wants.

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala said

00:11:58--> 00:12:02

when he unphysical to four who has a

00:12:04--> 00:12:17

whatever you say and drink and so on what you do externally and what you do inside your thoughts, your desires, Allah subhanaw taala will hold you to account for that for your view.

00:12:19--> 00:12:23

If he wishes he will forgive you he does not wish he will punish Walla Walla

00:12:28--> 00:12:48

they say that I it was so heavy on the Sahaba cassava went to ally Salazar to sell them. They went in the presence of the NaVi Salah Salem and they fell down on their knees before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and they said Yara Salalah Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered us to pray and we pray.

00:12:50--> 00:12:54

Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered us to give Zakat and we give zakat.

00:12:55--> 00:13:24

Now Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying that he will hold us accountable for our desires and our thoughts is a law we have control over our tongues. We have control over our Java over our actions, but we have no control over our thoughts, thoughts come and go. desires come and go. If Allah subhanaw taala hold us accountable for this. And if Allah subhanaw taala punishes us, then we will be destroyed.

00:13:26--> 00:13:26

We will be destroyed.

00:13:29--> 00:13:39

Before I tell you what to say let me ask you this question. Do you think this statement or this claim or this request of the Sahaba? Do does it sound reasonable to you or no?

00:13:42--> 00:13:42

Is it reasonable?

00:13:44--> 00:13:44

But you know what?

00:13:48--> 00:13:53

The narrator said the blessed face also la sala Salaam became red with anger.

00:13:56--> 00:14:11

His face became bred with anger. And he said are you going to be like those who came before you? And when Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them an instruction they said Samana sila, we have word but we will not obey.

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

Are you willing to be like those who said summon our Syrah we have heard but we will not obey. Nebuchadnezzar said say Salman Khan, Veronica Robert la calma. See,

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

let me say this

00:14:30--> 00:14:34

on our man our man we heard and we will obey.

00:14:37--> 00:14:39

We heard and we obey.

00:14:42--> 00:14:48

He's not saying we heard and if you like we will obey. If you think it is sensible. We will obey if you think it is reasonable. We will know we are that whatever you say.

00:14:51--> 00:14:55

We hear and we obey Veronica Rama, Allah for us

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

and our return is to you

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

sabar, Lisa was deciding this half remembering that day.

00:15:05--> 00:15:07

And then they remember what happened after that.

00:15:10--> 00:15:13

And what happened after that jabril la Salam came,

00:15:14--> 00:15:17

Allah Subhana Allah sandybridge la Salam.

00:15:20--> 00:15:27

ngvla ceram came with the eye at the last two Ayat of Surah Al Baqarah, which I have so much of

00:15:28--> 00:15:32

decorum And so much of a blessing.

00:15:33--> 00:15:36

Jamila ceram came and he said, Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:15:40--> 00:15:42

Allah alayhi wa

coluna mana Villa de la mala aka de Vaca Toby

LA

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

and then

00:15:59--> 00:16:00

we'll follow

00:16:03--> 00:16:09

up on Oh Veronica Bana la kanimozhi.

00:16:10--> 00:16:11

whose words are these?

00:16:13--> 00:16:15

The words of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

the words of the Sahaba is

00:16:20--> 00:16:27

when the surah Allah Allah subhana wa Taala was robina with a good mercy the Sahaba said Samira Donna

00:16:29--> 00:16:32

mercy. They did not only are solid No no, no, we didn't mean that.

00:16:34--> 00:16:35

Who did not understand us?

00:16:36--> 00:16:50

I think they came they had a problem. They came they had confusion they came, but when namitha Salim said forget all that just say Savannah autonomo prana Corona la cama sera immediately somehow

00:16:51--> 00:17:05

illegal mercy, what is the reward of obedience? Allah subhanho wa Taala took the exact words of his navy and returned them as his column to be recited in Salah till the Day of Judgment.

00:17:08--> 00:17:16

I could have said whatever he wanted to say he did not need to use the words that the masala film spoke. This is the honor the crab of the NaVi.

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

This is the crab of the momineen Samira wattana from la cama. See, this caliber la

00:17:25--> 00:17:26

This is Corolla

00:17:28--> 00:17:34

but if you read the hobbies related to the US, Baba neuropathies if you have exactly the same words

00:17:37--> 00:17:39

this is the Quran Allah did for me salah

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

and then what did Allah do?

00:17:43--> 00:17:46

Allah subhanaw taala comforted the Sahaba

00:17:48--> 00:17:50

Allah conferred to the Sahaba Allah Subhana

00:17:51--> 00:17:53

Allah knows they came with a problem

00:17:55--> 00:17:58

they obeyed hamdulillah but they came with a problem.

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

So Allah solve that problem.

00:18:02--> 00:18:04

Now you can live Hola Hola, sorry La

00:18:06--> 00:18:09

La hamaca sobre la. Mata Saba

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

lesson Don't worry.

00:18:15--> 00:18:21

We will not hold you responsible for thoughts will not hold responsible for intentions you're not only responsible for desires.

00:18:24--> 00:18:28

Actually, what you say what you do, you are responsible for that.

00:18:29--> 00:18:30

And then

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

sweller took away their

00:18:34--> 00:18:41

confusion took away their fear. Allah comforted them. And then Allah Subhana Allah taught them how to make dua

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

who don't have access to

00:18:48--> 00:18:49

Allah?

00:18:51--> 00:18:54

Who is the one who taught the Sahaba how to make God Allah Subhana

00:18:57--> 00:19:02

What do you say about the dua which Allah Himself got? Is it accepted

00:19:11--> 00:19:12

robina

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

in Sina Oh

00:19:18--> 00:19:21

well, I don't hold us responsible for what we forget what we do.

00:19:23--> 00:19:25

cama de la la vena cava Lena

00:19:31--> 00:19:31

hola

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

slowed us down with a burden like the people who fought us

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

for a

00:19:46--> 00:19:46

while

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

and

00:19:53--> 00:19:54

funds are

00:19:56--> 00:19:57

very

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

I have a villain who whenever he decided this after this, he would say I mean,

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

envy the Sahaba.

00:20:10--> 00:20:17

Because when they prayed behind the Prophet sallallahu sallam, whatever it recited, they remembered,

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

Lord of the remembered.

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

But there was one among them.

00:20:26--> 00:20:28

Who was the only one

00:20:29--> 00:20:32

who remember the ASVAB and knows all of this is

00:20:34--> 00:20:38

where Allah said law in Allah mahana.

00:20:39--> 00:20:42

Once again, the words of Mohammed Salah, Salah,

00:20:43--> 00:20:57

which Allah subhanho wa Taala sent back as his column, La Nina Mahabharata. And there was only one among the Sahaba only one who would say that I was there when this happened.

00:20:58--> 00:20:59

Because law

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

in the law was addressed to him.

00:21:07--> 00:21:12

That those that sentence was addressed to him, only one

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

was that

00:21:16--> 00:21:17

America said this

00:21:22--> 00:21:27

study the life of the cyber alumni are a match made, because these are our self.

00:21:28--> 00:21:36

Our self are not our fathers and grandfathers, our son of the Sahaba for Salalah he sallallahu Sallam

00:21:39--> 00:21:40

is just

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

I

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

have a series of lectures I've done on this call. So how about the gold standard, and I will send to Brother has him that text or that it's a form of a book now. And you can download it, it's a free ebook, you can read it. And also, that entire series of lectures is available on our YouTube channel, so you can listen to them inshallah. So I'm not going into all those details of those lectures. But just a few important points that I think that we need to reflect on and think about. Because these points are things that we can apply in our own lives as I give them my my whole focus of my teaching is

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

what is it that I can apply in my life today?

00:22:28--> 00:22:34

There's no point in telling stories because we know the story that's true. But if I if I tell you a story which you can apply in your life, what to do with that story.

00:22:36--> 00:22:40

So that story will be the idea of studying Sierra Swan is not for stories.

00:22:42--> 00:22:45

So how do we apply in our lives and therefore, please focus on that.

00:22:47--> 00:22:50

The first quality of the Sahaba was the quality of European

00:22:53--> 00:22:59

yaqeen. Now Allah subhanaw taala differentiated between a man and Yaki.

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

A large amount of aliens, Cara

00:23:03--> 00:23:04

in the first

00:23:06--> 00:23:09

Grammy, double arriba de la Vina

00:23:13--> 00:23:21

la Vina, you may not be live. And that same AI at the end of this world as it were built up here at home you can own

00:23:24--> 00:23:26

so human readable right, what is the Africa as I

00:23:27--> 00:23:34

had already mentioned that they have women in the era, they are women in the vibe, then what is the need to say what will ask you that you have up?

00:23:36--> 00:23:42

Because there is a difference between email and Yaki? And what is the difference?

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

Let me give you an example.

00:23:48--> 00:23:49

Say you are going for a walk

00:23:51--> 00:23:52

on the beach.

00:23:54--> 00:24:00

And on one side of the road there are these big mansions, huge villas,

00:24:02--> 00:24:03

big gates, big walls.

00:24:05--> 00:24:09

And outside the villa on the gate, every winner there is a sign saying beware of dog.

00:24:11--> 00:24:29

Beware of dog. So what do you understand from the sign that there is a dog inside, which is dangerous, which I should be aware of? So at that point in time, if I asked you I said do you believe this is real, I believe I have no reason not to believe it. I can I can see the sign.

00:24:31--> 00:24:37

Previously, I may have gone pasty. I heard the dog barking and so on and so forth. So I believe this you have in mind on this sign.

00:24:39--> 00:24:45

Then as you are walking along, you come to the gate and you find the gate is a little bit open.

00:24:47--> 00:24:54

And as you come to in front of that opening of the gate, you see this massive Rottweiler was sitting there

00:24:55--> 00:24:58

and he sees you and he stands up to say salam alaikum

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

You find that he has no chair.

00:25:05--> 00:25:09

What has happened to your knowledge about the dog has it changed?

00:25:11--> 00:25:14

What has changed, it is still a dog is not a lion.

00:25:15--> 00:25:16

What has changed?

00:25:18--> 00:25:22

Who suddenly discovered the connection between you and the dog?

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

The dog is not just an idea.

00:25:27--> 00:25:33

The dog is some thing which is right now in front of me. So, what do you do? You start singing.

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

Because it is

00:25:40--> 00:25:50

immediately you take action, you run you scream, you do something to save yourself or you can save yourself at least you recite the karma before you die.

00:25:53--> 00:25:55

What is the difference between a male and a female

00:25:56--> 00:26:01

even is knowing and believing yaqeen is acting on that belief.

00:26:02--> 00:26:13

To be accurate, you have yukino means that the theme the knowledge that I will start before Allah subhanho wa Taala dolla dolla who it is so real for me that I my life is based on that.

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

So let me give you the example of this.

00:26:22--> 00:26:25

So by having the highest of the Allahu Allah,

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

the mother of America.

00:26:36--> 00:26:38

She and her husband Yasser.

00:26:41--> 00:26:42

were arrested by Abuja.

00:26:44--> 00:26:47

So may have been the Hydra delana was a black African woman.

00:26:49--> 00:26:52

The first Shaheed in Islam was a black African woman

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

arrested her and arrested

00:27:00--> 00:27:02

her husband yesterday for the alarm.

00:27:04--> 00:27:07

And he said to them, give up this Islam.

00:27:08--> 00:27:15

You also arrested the Zahra Maria and he also tortured him and he also tortured his parents. Mr. Ma Asad recanted

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

and he said I give up Islam.

00:27:19--> 00:27:45

Later on event was also Salah manisa jasola I was in pain I could not help it I said this. So am I still a Muslim? What has happened to me? Now we shall observe when you were saying it what was in your heart? He said in my heart Alhamdulillah lai lai La La masala Maha did not change, but just to escape from this man who was torturing me, I had to say this is absurd in that situation, there is no problem or hamdulillah You are a Muslim and you remain a Muslim.

00:27:47--> 00:27:53

So there is a permission to save your life to say something like this to save your life is not it's not Haram.

00:27:54--> 00:27:55

There is a permission

00:27:59--> 00:28:01

but so may have an idea.

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

When I was at Forster, she said no,

00:28:06--> 00:28:12

sir Laila, hello Allah, Masha Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, Allah has disappeared and killed her.

00:28:13--> 00:28:16

Her husband is watching this happening in front of his eyes.

00:28:18--> 00:28:23

And then he gave to him, I will give to him and he said, so what is your answer now?

00:28:24--> 00:28:28

Leave this religion or Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam? He said no.

00:28:30--> 00:28:33

So I tied him to four horses

00:28:35--> 00:28:38

to to each hand due to each leg and rip them apart alive

00:28:40--> 00:28:41

in the real life,

00:28:43--> 00:28:45

but they did not change.

00:28:46--> 00:28:47

They did not change.

00:28:48--> 00:28:50

What is this level of jerky?

00:28:52--> 00:28:54

Somebody has without the rubber gelato.

00:28:55--> 00:28:59

What was the what was the sweetest moment of your life?

00:29:02--> 00:29:06

Many, many years later, they asked Elena what was the sweetest moment?

00:29:07--> 00:29:15

He said the sweetest moment of my life when I was when I would be put on to the burning sand

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

without my shirt

00:29:22--> 00:29:26

and my master would put a rock on my chest and they would drag me

00:29:27--> 00:29:30

and I would say I had done I had done I had

00:29:32--> 00:29:37

so nasty Why'd you say I don't know what he said to make that man more angry.

00:29:39--> 00:29:40

As he was.

00:29:41--> 00:29:47

Not only does he not want to escape that thing he said I used to say it because that used to drive him crazy with anger.

00:29:48--> 00:29:50

That would drive him crazy with anger.

00:29:53--> 00:29:55

So to drive him crazy, I would say I had a rap.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

And he said that is the sweetest moment of my life.

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

So the first quality was habits. Just a

00:30:08--> 00:30:13

second quality of the cassava is commitment to the cause

00:30:14--> 00:30:28

in entrepreneurship, which is also something that I teach the book on entrepreneurship as well called an entrepreneurs diary. There is a there is a lectures of mine on entrepreneurship on our YouTube channel, please go and see them.

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

in entrepreneurship, we say that if you want to succeed as an entrepreneur, you have to make a significant personal investment.

00:30:39--> 00:30:53

You cannot be an entrepreneur on somebody else's money. You cannot be an entrepreneur on somebody else's effort. If you want to be successful as an entrepreneur, you need to be able to make a significant personal investment.

00:30:58--> 00:31:03

They say that if you have a plan B, then you are destined to fail.

00:31:05--> 00:31:08

Burn the boats. There is no going back.

00:31:12--> 00:31:14

What was the situation with the Sahaba

00:31:16--> 00:31:19

Khadija the hora de la Juana, our mother,

00:31:21--> 00:31:25

the beloved wife also ally, Salah Salim for 25 years,

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

one of the wealthiest women in Makkah.

00:31:33--> 00:31:36

How much did she spend for the sake of Islam?

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

Everything.

00:31:40--> 00:31:40

Everything

00:31:42--> 00:31:47

completely spent her entire wealth for the sake of Islam.

00:31:50--> 00:31:52

Especially when they were boycotted in the

00:31:55--> 00:31:56

in the in the valley in Makkah.

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

She spent her money to buy food.

00:32:01--> 00:32:04

For the people who work the brainwashing were boycotted

00:32:06--> 00:32:07

until she had nothing

00:32:08--> 00:32:10

completely finished everything.

00:32:12--> 00:32:14

One day or so lies and SLM is sitting.

00:32:15--> 00:32:22

And Julia Salam comes to him. And he says, Yasser Allah your wife Khadija is about to come to you with some food.

00:32:23--> 00:32:26

When she comes, please give her my Salam

00:32:27--> 00:32:31

and give her the Salam of Europe Jalla Jalla wa

00:32:34--> 00:32:39

ala sir Allah subhanho wa Taala sending Salah Manasa Devi Listen, I'm serious. I came for that.

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

00:32:49--> 00:32:50

Ilana comes inside and

00:32:51--> 00:33:04

jabril is here with me alayhi salam. And he's saying salam to you and he brings a word from your Robert Myra dolla dolla dolla, Allah subhanho wa Taala sent Salam on you.

00:33:11--> 00:33:13

I talked in the morning about investment.

00:33:15--> 00:33:16

This is the return on investment.

00:33:19--> 00:33:20

This is the return on investment.

00:33:22--> 00:33:24

Oba Casa de la

00:33:26--> 00:33:34

escuela de la salams last emammal that he did on the Thursday before he passed away on the Monday.

00:33:37--> 00:33:39

At that time, Rasool Allah Salam

00:33:41--> 00:33:42

made this famous statement.

00:33:43--> 00:33:55

He actually stood there and he said, if there is anyone who I have wronged if there is anyone whose honor I have violated

00:33:57--> 00:33:58

honorable mamasan violet,

00:33:59--> 00:34:18

but he's teaching us he's teaching us. He said if there is anyone whose honor I have violated, please come and violate my honor and take back what is owed to you. If there is anyone who I hurt in any way, come and hurt me and take back that

00:34:19--> 00:34:20

compensate for him.

00:34:21--> 00:34:23

Once obviously, Dr. Zola you hurt me.

00:34:27--> 00:34:28

He said, jasola You hurt me?

00:34:29--> 00:34:30

I called him.

00:34:32--> 00:34:37

He said What did I do? He said jasola you poked me in my belly with your arrow.

00:34:39--> 00:34:56

There we used to walk in the surf and straighten the stuff. And sometimes he would have an arrow in his hand and if somebody was sticking out you would gently You know, that's him. The savagery arcilla you poke me in my belly, so that hurt me. So I want

00:34:57--> 00:34:58

compensation

00:34:59--> 00:35:00

the

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

Allah says Rob lifted his shirt. He said poke me in your mind my belly. Bizarre we hugged him and he kissed him. He said just wanted to kiss.

00:35:14--> 00:35:19

Allah subhanaw taala revealed, I had inserted

00:35:20--> 00:35:29

saying that the NaVi the Sahaba loves the NaVi more than they love themselves, Allah, Allah is witness to the love that the Sahaba had for a soloist.

00:35:31--> 00:35:46

I know that there was a lesson and made this famous statement and he said that I have returned any favor that anybody did to me. I have returned that favor to him and he said he Allah, you are my witness. And he said except one person.

00:35:47--> 00:35:49

And he said that person is Abu Bakar.

00:35:51--> 00:35:59

And he said my Rob will return my favors. The favors that Abu Bakar did for me. He said my Rob will return those favors to a

00:36:04--> 00:36:05

significant investment.

00:36:09--> 00:36:27

As soon as SLM is getting ready for his rise as the law says. It was a very hot afternoon in the middle of the afternoon when everybody's sleeping. We saw a man coming towards our house, and he was completely wrapped up. So we couldn't make out who it was until he came close. And then we saw it is so nice

00:36:29--> 00:36:35

that Michelle has elevated the house and he said yeah, Baba can tell your family to leave. I have something to say to you in confidence.

00:36:37--> 00:36:39

A worker says this is your family.

00:36:41--> 00:36:43

Then I told him about his life.

00:36:45--> 00:36:47

And he said I have been commanded to make

00:36:49--> 00:36:58

America safer. Dr. Zola What about me? He said I want you to come with me. I just said it was the first time I saw my father weeping like a baby

00:36:59--> 00:37:04

crying out of happiness. For being banished from the land. A

00:37:07--> 00:37:11

crying out of happiness. For what? For being banished from his home.

00:37:13--> 00:37:15

There is a lesson observed we need

00:37:16--> 00:37:18

00:37:19--> 00:37:20

00:37:51--> 00:37:52

00:38:29--> 00:38:32

00:39:27--> 00:39:29

He said Allah will not punish us for anything.

00:39:32--> 00:39:33

At that time a man comes

00:39:35--> 00:39:54

and his man is dressed in a poncho made of sack cloth. You know what's a poncho? It's a piece of piece of cloth which is holding the central pulled over your head so it falls in front and back and the sides are open. And this sides were secured with thorns

00:40:02--> 00:40:04

00:40:07--> 00:40:09

There is a lesson himself. Yeah, Baba.

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

What have you brought

00:40:13--> 00:40:13

00:40:14--> 00:40:21

Allah. I brought everything that I had in house, which is only so much. But that's all I have.

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

Now

00:40:26--> 00:40:28

what have you left for your family?

00:40:29--> 00:40:30

our workers, Elena said.

00:40:31--> 00:40:34

Allah and His Nabhi are enough for my family.

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

gra Salam comes

00:40:42--> 00:40:43

from cs dubray Raisa

00:40:46--> 00:40:50

activity Salam says Yara, Allah tell you a friend of a worker,

00:40:51--> 00:40:52

00:40:53--> 00:41:02

and tell your friend Abu Bakar Allah has sent me to ask Abu Bakar whether Abu Bakar is pleased with him generado

00:41:06--> 00:41:18

nabeshima services toga gibreel is here, Elise Allah, and he's giving salam to you and jabril says Allah wants to know and of course Allah subhanaw taala knows everything. But this is her just in favor of the slave.

00:41:19--> 00:41:23

He says Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to know whether you are pleased with him geladeira

00:41:25--> 00:41:28

weeping, Allah is asking me if I agree with Allah.

00:41:29--> 00:41:31

How can I not be pleased with Allah?

00:41:32--> 00:41:34

How can I not be pleased with Allah?

00:41:36--> 00:41:41

Then looks at jabril and what is your brain wearing? sack cloth

00:41:42--> 00:41:45

secured with thorns? Who is this?

00:41:46--> 00:41:49

The head of the Malika Booker Avalos vannatta

00:41:54--> 00:41:57

wa sallam says, jabril Why are you wearing these clothes? What is this

00:41:58--> 00:42:09

village Ramsay jasola your rub likes the clothes of your friends so much that it is not only me, Allah has commanded all the time the seven heavens to be dressed like a badass.

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

All of us are wearing the same clothes.

00:42:19--> 00:42:22

The position of the Sahaba my brothers sisters is very, very

00:42:23--> 00:42:24

special.

00:42:26--> 00:42:47

And finally, third quality first quality image. Second quality is significant commitment to the cause. And the third quality of the Sahaba May Allah forgive us. This is where we are probably the most deficient, was deficient. And that is the Brotherhood of faith.

00:42:50--> 00:42:51

The Brotherhood of faith.

00:42:54--> 00:42:55

This is something that the Sahaba

00:42:56--> 00:43:03

had and which they had to the level of excellence the Brotherhood between each other.

00:43:04--> 00:43:10

Today we have divided ourselves and every day we divide ourselves

00:43:12--> 00:43:14

every day we divide ourselves

00:43:16--> 00:43:24

this one will not pray behind that one that one will not Caribbean this one. This one has got a problem with that one that one's got a problem with this one in real life and

00:43:30--> 00:43:32

what Allah subhanaw taala said this oma

00:43:35--> 00:43:41

of yours is one number one and a boo boo boo. And I am Europe so worship me.

00:43:43--> 00:43:47

What was the Brotherhood of the Sahaba like? Once again, I will tell you stories

00:43:48--> 00:43:52

Salma Mufasa Delano azula Salah Salem

00:43:53--> 00:44:00

when they came to Medina and paired up one Mahajan savvy with a unsatisfied

00:44:01--> 00:44:08

so salmonella Farsi villano, his brother was a Buddha and Sharia law.

00:44:11--> 00:44:14

So now listen to the story. brotherhood of faith.

00:44:17--> 00:44:18

One day Psalm one verse he comes home

00:44:20--> 00:44:31

and he sees a mother, the wife of Ghana, there are no he sees delana in a disabled condition, your hair is not combed or something and clothes are

00:44:32--> 00:44:41

not neat. And there was a time before the birth and so forth giving some advice as to what is wrong with you or why you like this.

00:44:42--> 00:44:45

So she said Your brother is not interested in me anymore.

00:44:47--> 00:44:48

So why should I dress up for work?

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

Samar versus zero? How do you say that? What do you mean my my my brother is not interested in you which he said look, he fasts all day and he prays all night.

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

So where is it time for me?

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

Some alpha he said, Okay, I will sort this out.

00:45:09--> 00:45:10

So he's in the house

00:45:12--> 00:45:15

who comes in the afternoon and he brings food for several hours.

00:45:16--> 00:45:17

He tells him sit down and eat

00:45:20--> 00:45:24

I'm fasting Sir, I don't care breaker facility. This is nothing fast. It's not another

00:45:27--> 00:45:32

this is Java. I mean, what is this? I mean, I'm fasting and I don't care you sit and eat with me otherwise I don't need

00:45:35--> 00:45:37

no breaks is fast

00:45:38--> 00:45:39

and easy. He

00:45:40--> 00:45:41

then in the night

00:45:43--> 00:45:47

when someone was lying down and he's when they go to sleep,

00:45:49--> 00:45:52

he gets upset or wherever he said I'm going to praise no light honestly.

00:45:57--> 00:46:03

This is operational. What kind of thing is this? I want to pray and he was telling me that there's no need to lie down and sleep.

00:46:05--> 00:46:06

So

00:46:07--> 00:46:12

lies down and sleeps. After an hour he tries to get up sabarmati said sleep.

00:46:16--> 00:46:21

We're talking about brotherhood today. I will leave it if your brother does this to you will you will rebel. Yes or no?

00:46:23--> 00:46:40

Who is alpha z is an Iranian man. For sure man, who is Abdullah sorry, he's an Arab, different race, different culture, different community, different everything. But when Allah subhanaw taala has joined them together, they are they their hearts became one. So he's just sleep.

00:46:42--> 00:46:43

sleeps again.

00:46:44--> 00:46:52

Then the last one third of the nights of alfaz he wakes up he wakes up, they pray break and in the morning they go to the masjid for Salah.

00:46:53--> 00:46:55

Now by now a Buddha

00:46:56--> 00:46:57

has had enough

00:46:59--> 00:47:15

so after struggle further, it was the way of Salaam that after the salado father, he would turn around and sit and then he would ask people, has anyone seen a dream if somebody had seen a dream they would read the dream? Or some other question or would give a reminder or something. So when he turned around and said,

00:47:17--> 00:47:18

I have a big complaint.

00:47:20--> 00:47:36

For what complaint is or I guess my brother's alfalfa sees it? What did you do? He a married reason. Yes. Well, I come to sit and eat. He doesn't he I'm fasting. He makes me break my past I want to pray in the night. He does not let me do that. And so on and so of his operation.

00:47:37--> 00:47:42

So now he's a servicer. What did he tell you? Did he also say something or do you already know he told me that what he did?

00:47:43--> 00:47:53

He said he told me that your body has arrived on you. Your wife has arrived on you and your Rob has arrived on you give to each his right.

00:47:55--> 00:47:59

Rasul Allah Sallam said what your brother told you is absolutely correct.

00:48:01--> 00:48:23

You cannot take the right of one and give it to the other. Your herbicide on you of course you should fast and of course you will do camel but you cannot take away the right of your wife to be with you. Because you are fasting and because you are brave camel let know your body has a right on you yourself. If you put yourself to that kind of a stress every night All night you're worshipping Allah all day of fasting, your body will break down.

00:48:27--> 00:48:28

What kind of brotherhood is this?

00:48:32--> 00:48:45

What kind of brotherhood is this? One day someone on Paseo Delano is Juma in the in the in the philosophy of the law. says an hour will Catalano ameerul momineen

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

who is a bigger alum than

00:48:50--> 00:48:51

that time

00:48:53--> 00:48:53

was giving

00:48:54--> 00:48:56

and he's and he says

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

yeah levina hammer Otto la tierra sola

00:49:03--> 00:49:09

salon and verse he says we will obey Allah and we will obey the NaVi but we will not obey you.

00:49:10--> 00:49:13

What is happening in must use an abaya Sharif

00:49:14--> 00:49:15

in Juma

00:49:16--> 00:49:22

Masjid is filled and here is a man who is challenging the authority of the halifa

00:49:26--> 00:49:32

he says we will obey Allah and we will obey the Nabi sallallahu wasallam. But we will not obey you

00:49:34--> 00:49:42

and explain to you how the Sahaba dealt with differences and with arguments. What is the normal reaction?

00:49:44--> 00:49:49

Does he say I am the halifa you are telling me you will not have any religion

00:49:50--> 00:49:53

allowed did not say anything. He was silent.

00:49:54--> 00:49:56

Then he said to Salman al Farsi said my brother

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

What have I done? Why are

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

Are you saying you will not win?

00:50:02--> 00:50:09

Sir MARTIN FELDSTEIN of the law says, some cloth came and this cloth was given to the people of mother to the body and

00:50:10--> 00:50:21

each of us got one piece of cloth, but I see that you are wearing two pieces of cloth. So, you are unjust and we do not obey you if you are unjust.

00:50:22--> 00:50:33

What does he do? He does not he keeps quiet silent. Abdullayev number of delana stood up. And he said to the man in Wasilla, Delano, he's Romanenko.

00:50:34--> 00:50:41

I gave my piece of cloth to my father, my father is a big man and one piece of cloth is not enough for him to make

00:50:42--> 00:50:45

for him to wear. So I gave him my piece of cloth.

00:50:46--> 00:50:55

What is his reaction? He says, Alhamdulillah now we will obey Allah and we will obey His who was our Salah, and we will also be you

00:50:58--> 00:51:08

know, think about this. That's what I say when you listen to stories always ask questions. Think about this. Could salmonella Farsi rajala, no, not could he not have asked

00:51:09--> 00:51:10

this question in private?

00:51:12--> 00:51:13

Who could you have done that? No, no.

00:51:15--> 00:51:48

Maybe you might even think that what was the need to ask publicly really speaking? I mean, you know, if you had a doubt, privately, what was the point in publicly asking this question? And within quotes, maybe humiliating the haleiwa. But you know why he asked this question. And it is my interpretation of Allah Allah. My definition is salmaan and Varsha Delano asked this question, what was the law as a favor to mourn the loss of power and what is the favor? The favor is that salmonella varzi is not the only one to notice that Omar is wearing two pieces of cloth.

00:51:49--> 00:52:09

But other people may not have the courage to ask the question. They will go away with suspicion about the family find their hearts. They will go away with negative feelings about the family find the heart so Sir minervois is doing a favor to his brother Mr. Delano by asking a question directly so that they can be clarified in public and our hamdulillah everybody's heart is now free from doubt and suspicion.

00:52:15--> 00:52:19

brotherhood of faith. So three things, Mr. And Yaki

00:52:20--> 00:52:38

significant contribution for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala digital and a brotherhood of faith, keeping the hearts together. My brothers and sisters if there is one thing I can tell you, that is do not listen to anyone who speaks the language of division. One law here we have enough divisions.

00:52:40--> 00:52:44

Do not listen to anyone who speaks that language of division.

00:52:45--> 00:52:53

Listen to people who speak the language of keeping the hearts together. If there is a if there is an issue about somebody else and how they practice Islam and what they do.

00:52:54--> 00:53:03

If it hurts you so much. If you are so bothered, go and sit to sit with a person one on one and speak to them. Don't do that from the member. Don't do that Republic

00:53:05--> 00:53:25

and then leave them to Allah subhanho wa Taala make dua for them, but don't fight them. They are Muslim and hamdulillah. As long as apostle said La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, the person is a Muslim, according to the definition of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, I'm not making this statement, they asked themselves Allah, Allah who is a Muslim,

00:53:27--> 00:53:34

the one who said La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, who worships in the direction of our Kaaba and who eats what we slaughter.

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

That's it.

00:53:39--> 00:53:47

Then who are you and I, to create more and more divisions Please don't do that. Do not listen to anyone who speaks the language of divisions. So I'm not interested goodbye.

00:53:49--> 00:53:58

We need ourselves to we need Muslims to come together, we need Muslims to have their hearts together, we need to be concerned about each other.

00:54:00--> 00:54:14

So these are the three qualities of the Sahaba Islam and Ira mudvayne which I remind myself when you let us try to inculcate these in our lives, because this is the life of these these qualities are of people

00:54:15--> 00:54:23

who Allah subhanho wa Taala said that he was pleased with them. There is a guarantee for that there is no guarantee like that for anyone else after the Sahaba

00:54:24--> 00:54:26

we can have a good

00:54:28--> 00:54:59

good good son who's risen and good a belief about other people to say that inshallah Stan Oh brother so and so will be in general me please but there is no guarantee about that. The only guarantee is for the Sahaba after the Gambia is only for the Sahaba. Anyway, these are the qualities of the sahab I asked Allah subhanaw taala to open our hearts to the love of Mohammed Salah to Allah subhanaw taala love to love to Sabah ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to live our lives like the legends our Islam and emigrate ask Allah Subhana Allah

00:55:00--> 00:55:17

To make each one of you a beacon of guidance to make each one of you a reflection of the cyber as well as mine, so that when you go in the world, people will look at you and they will be attracted to Islam. They will be attracted to the beauty of this date. Alana will Karim Allah Allah. He was amazed when we ran mochica
