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

hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala shuffelin mousseline wala Ali, he was heavy HIS Manual but

00:00:09--> 00:00:15

we continue with the qualities of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam inshallah we will finish before

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

we were at the point of the issue of fortitude or Sabha and as I mentioned to you server is not simply to sit around doing nothing, because that's the usual understanding of server where people say the word server with a sense of helplessness like it, what do we save Kassab? Somebody's karma? But that's a completely false impression about summer.

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

Summer is completely and totally doing all that you can possibly do in a situation, making all the effort using all resources, all strategies and then having faith and trust only and only on Allah.

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

That is also the meaning of Taqwa. Why did Allah matter? This is why did Allah subhanaw taala say the summary was salah.

00:01:11--> 00:01:18

Effort first, then Salah in the in the meaning of namaz as well as the meaning of the linguistic meaning of Suraj.

00:01:21--> 00:01:26

Why do I say summer is summer means all effort where is my real for that?

00:01:27--> 00:01:33

My the reason for that is the fact that Allah subhanaw taala used this word Siberian people have summer

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

for Mujahideen

00:01:37--> 00:01:47

in three or four places in the Quran, and other places, Allah subhanaw taala used this word Siberian to mean Mujahideen. Now,

00:01:48--> 00:02:02

if you look at who is Elijah, he is a soldier fighting in a just war for the sake of Islam, protecting Muslims and protecting communities, which may not even Muslim but protecting them against oppression.

00:02:04--> 00:02:12

Who is more of a symbol of action and complete and total commitment than a soldier fighting in battle?

00:02:14--> 00:02:20

Right. So it's total action and its commitment to the extent that the man is even putting his life on the line.

00:02:22--> 00:02:46

Those are the people that Allah subhanaw taala referred to as slavery. Allah did not call the people the mousseline, for example, people who are praying as slavery, Allah did not call anyone else, slavery, Allah subhanaw taala called Bucha he didn't slavery, and therefore my understanding is our means to completely and totally commit to the course of action that that results in goodness.

00:02:47--> 00:02:58

But at the same time after that, to start in solid, why, because this is the in my understanding, this is the Tawakkol of the column.

00:02:59--> 00:03:28

This is what saves you from arrogance. This is what saves you from feeling that success was a result of my strategy. success was a result of my efforts success was a result of my victory came to him because of what I did. That is a very big danger. So it saves you from ship from making yourself shriek in the victory that comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala geladeira. So what saves you from that this dua

00:03:29--> 00:03:47

having made all the efforts the person is not relying on the effort alone the person stands over Allah subhanaw taala and says Yarrabah army sucks success and failure is in your hands. I did what I could do, please give me success. If I get success, it will not be because of my effort because my effort is has no meaning.

00:03:48--> 00:04:04

Why do I still make the effort because this is your hunger because you made this world a world of cause and effect. So Allah did not tell us. For example, the famous quote of Omar Al Khattab, Delano. He said, they said what is Taco he said Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:05--> 00:04:10

he said the bird leaves the nest every morning with an empty belly and returns with a full belly.

00:04:12--> 00:04:15

So Allah subhanaw taala feeds the bird, but not in the nest.

00:04:17--> 00:04:28

The bird leaves the nest, to go and find food and it finds food. But if the same bird sits in the nest, does Allah subhanaw taala have the power to still feel the feed the word yes of course.

00:04:29--> 00:04:32

But Will Allah feet it will feel a laugh it is but

00:04:35--> 00:04:52

Illa mashallah you unless it is a hammer of Allah Allah says the will of Allah otherwise, Allah subhanaw taala does not feed the worst bird in the nest because this is not the sunnah to learn. The difference between Hydra Tala and sunAt Allah the Hydra to Allah hatred of Allah subhanaw taala has no limits.

00:04:53--> 00:04:57

The Sunnah of Allah also does not have limits, but the sooner the one that comes with rules.

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

Can Allah

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

Samantha create a human being without parents, neither mother nor father? Yes.

00:05:08--> 00:05:32

Otherwise, no mother no father? Can Allah subhanaw taala create a full grown human being? From day one? The day he is born is full grown. Is it possible? Yes. Adam Melissa had never I was never a toddler. He was never an infant. He was never two years old, you know, he was never a teenager and when he was born, full grown man

00:05:34--> 00:05:40

how are they Salem, his wife, who is the winning court mother of our a man

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

because she came out of adolescence.

00:05:45--> 00:05:52

So your mother is the one you come out of the WHO IS THE within the mother of our adolescence.

00:05:54--> 00:06:00

So Allah is proving that all the rules that Allah made, Allah is not subject to those rules.

00:06:03--> 00:06:10

But having said that, I will say that I want a sub. Very good. So what must I do? Get married? No, I don't want a wife.

00:06:11--> 00:06:13

No problem then what do you

00:06:14--> 00:06:15

adopt? Right?

00:06:17--> 00:06:20

But I want my own son and my progeny.

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

Keep wanting is not gonna happen. Because that is not something that Allah

00:06:26--> 00:06:30

if Allah wants he can give. Of course we don't we don't do we do not deny that?

00:06:31--> 00:06:35

We don't say Allah Subhana Allah created rather than extra ones and He's incapable of doing it again I was biller No,

00:06:37--> 00:06:38

but is this going to happen?

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

No.

00:06:41--> 00:06:47

Allah subhanaw taala created this world with certain rules, we call them the rules of physics.

00:06:50--> 00:06:58

The same rules What does not rule the fish is the rules of Allah subhanaw taala. So, you call them the rules of physics we accept when you call them the rules of Allah you don't accept

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

what is gravity

00:07:02--> 00:07:06

law of physics humans, Allah's Mahajan.

00:07:10--> 00:07:11

And so on and so on.

00:07:12--> 00:07:26

Server is to understand this and therefore, make your best effort and stand before Allah. Now, we are talking about a series where do you see someone you see summer in his entire life,

00:07:27--> 00:07:29

but one of the finest examples of summer

00:07:30--> 00:07:39

which illustrates this whole concept which I explained to you is the Batmobile. What did he do? He made the maximum effort that he could possibly make

00:07:40--> 00:07:43

in terms of whatever resources he had,

00:07:44--> 00:07:57

he used them he took the advice of people one of the Sahaba when they when he said when they came to the field of bother and I said let us camp here, this hobby gave to Sal Salah is this a hokum of Allah

00:07:58--> 00:08:20

communicating a order of Allah subhanaw taala or is this your assessment? Let me say this is not a hug of Allah, then in this region, I have a solution if you accept, so, say say what is it he said let us come at a different place where there was there was a well there have there was a system they made later, but there is also well some water he said let us have the water in our control.

00:08:21--> 00:08:25

So we can behind the water so the water is in our control. When the enemy comes then we will not have water

00:08:26--> 00:08:30

does not accept it this hubby's advice.

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

He did not say are you there?

00:08:33--> 00:08:35

Are you getting away? Am I getting away? No.

00:08:36--> 00:08:40

Good advice. hamdullah we take the advice. So he did all of that.

00:08:41--> 00:08:45

deployed the troops appointed commanders

00:08:46--> 00:09:08

head of the head of the route and so on and so on. And then what did you do? And then he stood before Allah subhanaw taala they had made a shelter for him he stood there and he made Salah and he made dua, and he kept on asking Allah subhanho wa Taala geladeira the word you know the famous dua brother he said Yeah, yeah Allah. If these people die they will not be anyone left on the face of the earth to worship

00:09:11--> 00:09:15

and he kept on asking Allah until our workers said Yara Salah bus

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

couldn't see the solar cell in that stage. Is

00:09:21--> 00:09:24

your Rob has promised to Victor

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

you're a Wilson is

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

that enough?

00:09:34--> 00:09:39

Of course I was 1% and last month I mentioned that in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala said the Malaga.

00:09:41--> 00:09:57

wa salam gave and the bardreau bother as you know, the rest as they say is history. So what is our therefore is to make the maximum effort and start before I was run into another aspect of summer. Is that summer is to respond not to react

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

to the difference

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

When you are reacting, you are like a puppet. You your actions are in the hands of the puppeteer.

00:10:09--> 00:10:21

I'm sure all of you have seen some puppet show at some point in time, if you haven't seen it, go to YouTube. So you're the puppeteer is behind the screen, who's got the strings in his fingers under the puppet, and he does this and

00:10:23--> 00:10:26

so the puppet is moving, who is actually moving the puppet.

00:10:27--> 00:10:42

So when you are reacting, you have made yourself into a puppet, you react depending on what the other person does, therefore, who has the control button who has the remote the other person.

00:10:45--> 00:10:49

So reactions usually, or almost always produce only negative

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

responses.

00:10:52--> 00:11:05

To respond is not react respond is to consciously take a decision to act in a certain way, not because of what the other person did, but because of what you think is the best way to act in that situation.

00:11:07--> 00:11:21

In the lives of Islam, we have an issue of we know the story of the woman who used to throw rubbish in his path, and sometimes maybe we'll have on him also something would fall. Every time he passed by our house, he would she would do this.

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

What was his reaction? Nothing. He would dust himself and he would continue on his path. What was his response? And differentiating between these two terms reacting and responding? What was the response? The day the woman did not throw this? He turned around and came back and he asked where is this lady?

00:11:41--> 00:11:43

She's not well, she's sick.

00:11:45--> 00:11:59

He said Can I see her? They said yes, please come. He came to her and he said, I came to find out I believe you're not well melasma the luckier you also are. Those started weeping. She said I throw garbage on you and you are making the offer me.

00:12:01--> 00:12:03

There isn't as an absurd you do what you do I do what I do.

00:12:09--> 00:12:11

Abdur Rahim Khan Cara was going somewhere.

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

And an old woman she threw a stone

00:12:17--> 00:12:29

so the soldiers grabbed her and they brought her to him. So he said to his treasure he said, give her a bag of 100 gold coins. So one bag of washers was given to her

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

she went away

00:12:34--> 00:12:42

so they asked him he said what is this he throw a stone at you when you view giving gold coins? He said what happens if you throw a stone at a tree which is full of fruit

00:12:48--> 00:12:50

he did she does what she does I do what I do I can only do this

00:12:52--> 00:12:56

that's why we got Alyssa Yeah, like this is an Adam Abdo years.

00:12:59--> 00:13:03

who responds to something negative like this? You are robbing anime

00:13:04--> 00:13:08

you are running heavy on Africa. All of us are

00:13:14--> 00:13:19

not reacting but responding. These are before these incidents are

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

some of them are at the beginning of in Makkah.

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

elements going

00:13:29--> 00:13:33

it's either old woman's running by the side of the road. She's got some luggage.

00:13:34--> 00:13:48

So what luggage there is I'm going to go I need someone to help me with this luggage I waiting for somebody if I can find some, you know, laborer to carry this because I have to get to the place where the caravans go.

00:13:50--> 00:13:53

So as soon as I said, I'll help you. He picked up the luggage.

00:13:55--> 00:14:03

And now he's getting the luggage of hers. And she's walking by searches. Yeah. So he asked her, I said, Where are you going? She said, I'm leaving mucca

00:14:06--> 00:14:09

mucca mucca. He said, because this is big of a bad place.

00:14:11--> 00:14:29

There is this man called Mohammed. And he's preaching that we should not worship our gods. And we should worship only Allah. And he says I have grown up like you have been worshipping these gods all my life, my family worship these gods and so on. And this man comes and he's creating all these fitna and his problem with the families and so on and so on.

00:14:30--> 00:14:33

That continues to listen GTL she says all this

00:14:34--> 00:14:35

he doesn't say anything.

00:14:36--> 00:14:50

Another one says you know you're such a nice person you do help him with baggage and so on and she gives him dua you know, maybe we'll be well finally there is the place she tries to pay which I don't know and I don't need anyone to help you.

00:14:52--> 00:14:54

So she's at least telling me your name, which is Mohammed

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

Mohammed does Mr.

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

He says the table back

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

I don't know.

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

If you are my mother accept

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

I accept Islam you will what you're saying has to be correct

00:15:17--> 00:15:28

that's what I always say Islam spread because people fell in love with Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, Islam spread because of rocklabs Islam did not spread because of theological argument this woman is talking all of this stuff

00:15:29--> 00:15:42

against Allah subhanho wa Taala all of this stuff in favor of our God that means that I sort of did not argue with it he didn't debate with it. He didn't tell you are critical what dances are you talking all those rubbish, you know, worshipping idols, and so he didn't say any of that. He said nothing.

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

Only he's

00:15:47--> 00:15:57

the one accepted Islam without one single theological argument without one single debate without munching on anything. Just the lack of Muhammad Salah sir

00:16:03--> 00:16:10

seriously, Abdullah bin Salam are Delano, the Medina, the rabbi of the banana, the the Jews.

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

He talks about His coming to Islam when he went to meet Robin Koba.

00:16:18--> 00:16:21

And he said, When I looked at his face, I knew this is not the face of a liar.

00:16:23--> 00:16:25

So the man who looks like this cannot tell a lie.

00:16:27--> 00:16:30

He's not talking about physical beauty, he's talking about the radiance of truth.

00:16:31--> 00:16:39

I was which was also physic physically very handsome and very beautiful. But he's not talking about that he's talking about the details of this and this is the face of somebody who cannot tell lies.

00:16:42--> 00:17:13

That is the meaning of summer. This is what summer gets when now in their life. It was awesome so many such incidents where because of his our people who are enemies of Islam, I already mentioned why you Harlequin volley, our glass, and each one of them there is a story I don't want to go into the into too many details because we need to finish. But point being that fortitude and server is a expression of confidence is an expression of courage because somebody who's afraid cannot have no patience, you have to immediately react.

00:17:15--> 00:17:19

Somebody curses you, you curse him back. Somebody says you are a donkey and you prove it.

00:17:20--> 00:17:22

Somebody says You are an idiot and you prove it.

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

Why? Four?

00:17:27--> 00:17:28

If you're not a donkey, why'd you wave like a dog?

00:17:31--> 00:17:35

So seriously, that is something that we need to work on. Then we come to

00:17:36--> 00:17:38

Riga, we'll call that where

00:17:39--> 00:17:43

Allah subhanaw taala we are talking about, as I mentioned, do

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

I

00:17:47--> 00:17:49

refer you to the story of life?

00:17:50--> 00:18:03

Now in question of time, as I mentioned to there are several lessons, three ways of reacting to incidents in life. And we are talking here about failures.

00:18:05--> 00:18:21

People react in three different ways. One is, of course, people complain. So something happens, there's a loss, there is failure and so on, and you know, you more and groan and you scream, and so on, so forth, why me and so on, so forth. All of this, of course, is completely negative, as Muslims we do not do this.

00:18:23--> 00:18:29

Second way of dealing with failure is where you don't complain,

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

but you accept.

00:18:33--> 00:18:35

So if somebody says, How are things

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

handled, but you can people you can see from the face of somebody that they're obviously unhappy about it, and so forth. Now, this is a second level this is not bad. We'll enter the day you are human, if it pains It pains.

00:18:52--> 00:19:03

But resemble Kedah is a level beyond this. This is the level of the Umbria This is the level of the surface here, this is the level of Rasulullah salams.

00:19:04--> 00:19:05

approach to life.

00:19:06--> 00:19:20

Revival Allah is not only to accept the color of Allah because we have no choice. You as you moan and groan about it or not. The color of Allah is the color of Allah if it happened, it has happened it will happen.

00:19:21--> 00:19:29

So the reader will color is not just accepting the color of Allah but actually being happy about what happened.

00:19:31--> 00:19:33

Pleased with the color of Allah's Vanita

00:19:34--> 00:19:41

now you might say well, you know, this like pushing it, because how can you be pleased about loss?

00:19:42--> 00:19:44

How can you be pleased about

00:19:46--> 00:19:47

some, you know,

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

believe bereavement or somebody close to me dies, or I make a lot of effort, years and years of effort behind something and he doesn't

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

doesn't there's no success I do not achieve what I want to achieve.

00:20:04--> 00:20:15

Now when this kind of thing happens, especially with bereavement as well as different but especially if you are engaged in good work, whether it is directly the work of Dawa or something else

00:20:17--> 00:20:31

I mentioned to you the issue of life what are the three things we said that sincerity? Did you really have sincere diva? Do you have a class? And you say well answer is yes or Hamdulillah I know to the best of my ability. I did this only for Allah.

00:20:33--> 00:20:50

Not for my name not for fame. My name is nowhere nothing only for Allah did not take any money. No money involved, no material benefit involved. I was working only and only for the pleasure of Allah. So inshallah since you already had a class is there a

00:20:51--> 00:21:20

second one the thing that you were doing was it for Islam? Yes. 100% only for Islam there's no other material benefit in that there's no business deal in it nothing was doing it only for Islam. Number three, did you make enough effort? Yes, I made enough effort I was working day and night on it. Thanks to that all my other works got neglected but this work God procedures I did all this to all three conditions are satisfied. Then what happened? Nothing happened.

00:21:22--> 00:21:23

Did not get success.

00:21:25--> 00:21:36

So looking at these three things. First one, you can complain I did all this nothing happened. Bad Bad, bad choice. We don't complain. Second one. We accept

00:21:37--> 00:21:38

the ticket Hagia Gaga

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

but what is the best way?

00:21:42--> 00:21:54

The best place to sell Hamdulillah I thank Allah that this did not happen. I imagine this crazy Oh Why do you think Allah if you are going to tangle it did not happen. What would you have done if it happened?

00:21:56--> 00:22:01

So what is this tagging Allah did not happen. thanking Allah did not happen because how does

00:22:02--> 00:22:32

because of what Allah subhanaw taala said in the Quran, where Allah subhanaw taala said whatever they want to accomplish a mineral how people jewelry or not similar lumber. Was Eva savara What was she saw very Alladhina Eva Saba Tomasi button called who? Paulo in Allah he were in LA he rod Jeroen will eagerly him Salah to mera beam Bora will

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

00:22:37--> 00:22:51

Why do you tangle with Allah is specifically mentioning failures Allah is mentioning tests Allah is mentioning been Allah has mentioned in laws yes and truly are Verily We will test you one another one

00:22:52--> 00:23:13

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

and then what

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

test you in one plus

00:23:23--> 00:23:37

for Bashir is very good news Glad Tidings Bashara for the people who do suffer and who are there? Allah Gina either Saba to masiva tone when they have this Musa Messiah when they have the bousema What do they do?

00:23:39--> 00:23:44

In La he were in Isla here Roger. They say we are from Allah to Allah is our

00:23:45--> 00:23:49

and then what are the lessons? We like Ali him Salah to me rugby

00:23:56--> 00:24:04

00:24:05--> 00:24:10

Now look at this situation. You made all the effort, you are sincere.

00:24:11--> 00:24:15

You're doing it for a good cause for the sake of honesty and you failed.

00:24:16--> 00:24:33

What are you thanking Allah for? thanking Allah that because of the way Allah held you because of the support Allah gave you because of how Allah allowed you and permitted you have enabled you to act in the face of failure.

00:24:34--> 00:24:40

You are now are in sha Allah in the position where Allah said Allah him Salah to Mira

00:24:44--> 00:25:00

battle of Lubbock now he's a wrestler is asking for donations of agora Cydia Bella Welcome to the login lung. How many of you have heard about that and talking about one piece of it? how aggressive they are they'll and who comes dressed in rags literally is you know dude has

Can cloth sack you he made a hole in the sack he put it on his to his head through like a poncho and he

00:25:08--> 00:25:10

secured the side with pods

00:25:12--> 00:25:23

even his clothes yes gummies brought it to him says what what have you left for your family Abba? He's a gr Allah and he's gonna be sufficient for me and my family.

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

So what happens now? Gmail is Salam comes

00:25:29--> 00:25:40

and governances Yara Allah your Rob send Salah on your friend Abu Bakr and you're Rob wants to know is Abu Bakr pleased with him?

00:25:45--> 00:25:46

Oh god

00:25:48--> 00:25:51

Allah wants to know if I am pleased with him

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

Allah wants to know if I am pleased, how can I not be pleased with Allah?

00:26:03--> 00:26:04

And then the Surah Surah Sam looks at you very well.

00:26:06--> 00:26:12

What does he see? He sees Gibreel so I'm dressed in the same clothes as a worker who is

00:26:13--> 00:26:18

the king of the Malacca Lucara wall from the corner of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:26:20--> 00:26:21

The one to one law speaks directly.

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

Julius Malema is dressed in

00:26:27--> 00:26:28

a sack

00:26:29--> 00:26:32

that's one of the activities What is this your clothes?

00:26:36--> 00:26:49

Today your rug has ordered not only me, but all of us. The billions and zillions of like on the seven heavens to dress like your friend Abu Bakr. Rob loves his dress so much.

00:26:50--> 00:26:50

Okay.

00:26:53--> 00:26:57

This is the meaning of readable language, Allah

00:26:58--> 00:27:22

Alhamdulillah I did not succeed Alhamdulillah I did not succeed and my Arab allowed me to be in a position where I do not complain, allowed me to be in a position where I'm not only accepting the cover of Allah, but I shall hamdulillah Europe I'm very happy that I did not simply because of this insha Allah I'm close to that reason why I

00:27:23--> 00:28:03

have to have to rugby the first field as I am. Imagine, these are people who got the Therby of Muhammad salah. He said, I recognized my rub, by the breaking of my aspirations, by the failure of my desires, or after rugby I recognized by Rob, I got the fan of IRA, the first pill aside, because of my eyes, my desire, whatever I wanted to do, did not happen. It did not succeed. Despite my best efforts, despite my sincerity, despite all my dua it did not happen. That is where I recognize that my rug is the one who runs this world, not me.

00:28:05--> 00:28:16

And then of course, the one that will hurt you know what you also recognizes? He recognizes the fact that all the DUA he made for that thing to succeed.

00:28:17--> 00:28:18

He's waiting for him

00:28:20--> 00:28:21

on the day of judgment,

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

what is the value of that?

00:28:26--> 00:28:33

This thing, whatever it was in this world, if it had succeeded, would it have given him the same value as this dua

00:28:34--> 00:28:37

with Allah subhanaw taala, which is with Allah.

00:28:40--> 00:28:43

Not a billion is not in 1 million years.

00:28:45--> 00:28:53

Because this dua which waits with Allah subhanaw taala the Day of Judgment, and I'm not saying this, you know, I'm saying it because this is what I was told us,

00:28:54--> 00:28:56

that dua the day of judgment

00:28:59--> 00:29:06

that I will say my slave, you asked me for this, I did not give it to you now asked me what you want.

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

What is the value of that?

00:29:12--> 00:29:13

What is the value of

00:29:15--> 00:29:17

that is why the one who

00:29:18--> 00:29:24

understands this, the one who knows is Rob jelajah who may Allah Vegas all among those

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

he makes the best effort

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

and if he succeeds, Alhamdulillah Hara banana Alameen what he feels still are hamdulillahi

00:29:38--> 00:29:42

rabbil cada is that is why it is so so important.

00:29:44--> 00:29:59

Third point of Islamic Allah which I want to say and with that, which is that just because you and I do not see the effect of our efforts immediately or in this world, I do not believe that there is no effect

00:30:01--> 00:30:08

Rasul Allah is Allah is Allah himself when the soul has passed away at the age of 63 in Medina,

00:30:09--> 00:30:13

the sum total of Islam was within Jazeera talara.

00:30:15--> 00:30:17

While only within the Arabian Peninsula

00:30:20--> 00:30:26

even there it was not completely in their appearance because people like to sell magazines or were there, those people who are not Muslim.

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

You're talking about the effort of the NABI SallAllahu, Allahu Allah, he was

00:30:34--> 00:30:50

even he did not see the fulfillment of his effort during his lifetime. But did that mean that nothing was happening? Everything was happening, because in the same generation, as enemies

00:30:51--> 00:30:51

are

00:30:53--> 00:30:58

rolled over and Empire from Medina, all the way up to Jerusalem,

00:30:59--> 00:31:03

rolled over an empire from Medina, all the way into Iran,

00:31:04--> 00:31:08

the whole of Syria, whole era all of Persia.

00:31:10--> 00:31:14

And then when you're actually next, not, not even generation of

00:31:17--> 00:31:18

Muslims were in China.

00:31:20--> 00:31:21

Muslims were India.

00:31:22--> 00:31:26

Muslims were India long before that, but I'm saying in actual, the army of

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

of

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

which came to

00:31:34--> 00:31:38

my mind because it came and the type of mode

00:31:40--> 00:31:47

that came at the time of in the realm of asthma. And then if you look at North Africa, all of this happened in the time of

00:31:50--> 00:31:51

with the same generation.

00:31:52--> 00:32:06

Mr. McCarthy was not that there was a little it was in the I mean, they may appear. But anyway, the point being that in the saga because of the law, no went to China, and that was in the time of being a fan of the Law No, during his craft.

00:32:08--> 00:32:18

So the point I'm saying is that just because you make effort and you do not see the result, or you find that result didn't happen. One is number one is to remember that Allah subhanaw taala insha, Allah whose time is

00:32:19--> 00:32:23

is pleased and therefore what what is happening is what pleases Allah.

00:32:24--> 00:32:31

And also that don't think it's a very short of edits, everything takes time. And this is part of the process.

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

If a farmer plants a seed that dies, has he failed, he succeeded?

00:32:38--> 00:32:48

He succeeded because he planted the seed. If he had not planted the seed, then you might have said, well, you know, he's your does something, but if you planted the seed and die, the seed will germinate.

00:32:50--> 00:32:51

The seed will germinate.

00:32:53--> 00:33:02

Final point, this is why one of the Salafi said when I make dua, and Allah grants it to me, I'm happy.

00:33:04--> 00:33:09

But when I make dua, and Allah does not guarantee to me, I'm even more happy.

00:33:11--> 00:33:30

So somebody asked him, What do you mean by that? He said, because when I make dua, and Allah gives me then what I wanted happened. But when I make dua, and Allah does not give me then what my rep wanted happens, and therefore I'm even more happy because I am able for for me, what happened was what Mayra bada

00:33:31--> 00:33:32

bada

00:33:35--> 00:33:41

that is the meaning of praise Allah We ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us among those who are always pleased with his color in sha Allah.

00:33:43--> 00:33:45

Then we come to the issue of generosity,

00:33:46--> 00:34:12

which is a very, very critical, critical factor of leadership. No one respects a leader who is stingy. No one respects a leader who will not share no one respects a leader who is not with his people. And this is true if you look at leaders even across if you take Genghis Khan, for example, Genghis Khan had enormous the kind of loyalty that Genghis had from his people was probably unprecedented in the sense of you know,

00:34:13--> 00:34:21

very few people at that time right. And what do they say what they say but anytime that he ate what is people ate, and he ate with them

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

he lived in a tent like they lived in a tent his whole life.

00:34:28--> 00:34:35

He did not eat separately he sat with them he ate with them and he ate what they ate. The what the troops ATE is what the king it.

00:34:36--> 00:34:42

This is the same thing about Salahuddin you will have to learn this is the same thing for highs valleys.

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

And of course we know that this was true of Rasulullah Salam in the Battle of conduct now is a result of a man comes to him and he says he lifts up his shirt is jasola see our store title my belly I'm so hungry, that rips up his shirt and there are three stores

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

Three flat tones tied on his belly to keep hunger away.

00:35:07--> 00:35:09

generosity comes before anything else

00:35:11--> 00:35:13

in generosity,

00:35:14--> 00:35:23

I mentioned to you the dua after thigh for Tanaka and so on as examples of forgiveness. But these are also examples of amazing generosity

00:35:25--> 00:35:28

when the person could have done something to retaliate in

00:35:31--> 00:35:32

another

00:35:33--> 00:35:48

totally amazing example of generosity is the treatment of socialism. With respect to Abdullah bin Salman come after me the way men Caliph women, hello, was the head of the Marine in Medina.

00:35:50--> 00:36:03

And he was a man who never left. He didn't let anything pass. He did not allow any opportunity to go past where he could have harmed. He tried his best he did many things.

00:36:06--> 00:36:10

When he came back from the book, his son,

00:36:11--> 00:36:12

Abdullah Abdullah,

00:36:13--> 00:36:20

who was a Muslim, he came to him and he said, Yeah, Salah my father passed away. He just died.

00:36:21--> 00:36:43

And I want you to please give your hope you give your shots. For me to use as coffin for Baba, he knew his father. He knew who his father was, he was afraid for his father's akhira and he was trying to do the best for his father. Not only what in terms of Baraka, what is better what can be better than the actual shirt on a visa Sanlam which was next to his skin?

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

To be a cover for the person who's being buried.

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

Now to get out, give it then Abdullah bin Abdullah. He said, Can you please come and do the salata Jana from afar?

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

Dua

00:37:02--> 00:37:03

Yes.

00:37:04--> 00:37:13

He went there. When he stood there with the body and he was standing there Omar, who came and stood before and he said he will not do not do this. Do you know who this is?

00:37:14--> 00:37:16

Yes, I know who it is Omar, who was

00:37:19--> 00:37:23

again, he came in Please do not do this. Don't pray for this man.

00:37:25--> 00:37:26

Knows, more set

00:37:30--> 00:37:35

aside, now we're gonna celebrate sarafa Janaza for Abdullah bin, we will

00:37:36--> 00:37:38

also put him in the way

00:37:39--> 00:37:48

after that, and this is the Rama follows manager. Allah subhanaw taala could have revealed that if at any time, he would have revealed this ayah right there before

00:37:49--> 00:37:50

Allah did not do that

00:37:51--> 00:37:53

is that he was doing something which

00:37:54--> 00:38:11

but then we will have surah Tauba whereas raka said even if you ask forgiveness for him, meaning Abdullah MindWave in sorrow at the Mauna Kea. He said even if you ask forgiveness for them 70 times submarine Amara,

00:38:12--> 00:38:13

Allah will not forgive them.

00:38:16--> 00:38:22

Right. What was his reaction to that? The results are absurd. If I knew

00:38:23--> 00:38:31

if I knew that my Rob would forgive him. If I asked forgiveness 71 times I would ask 31 times.

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

Who is he was what he was telling me.

00:38:40--> 00:38:42

That is the meaning of generosity.

00:38:44--> 00:38:56

That's why it's amazing. Just think about it in your own life. What we remember about people is how we felt in those situations. That's why they say people won't remember what you say, but they will remember how you made them feel.

00:38:58--> 00:38:59

So in any situation,

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

when you are generous people remember that. And they remember that for far longer than you might imagine.

00:39:10--> 00:39:21

There was a man there was a woman who used to sing in Makkah. She was a singer and she used to sing some very derogatory and insulting poetry related.

00:39:22--> 00:39:28

There are people who are writing their stuff and she used to sing. So after Hatanaka and so on, she lost all her clientele.

00:39:29--> 00:39:31

He became very poor. So as you can Medina

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

imagine the

00:39:34--> 00:39:41

reputation for generosity, how it spends and how it spreads and what people do this woman now Where does she come she comes Medina to the house or Mr. Salah

00:39:43--> 00:39:49

and she says, Allah I'm here I've got nothing I've become a piggery so please give me something

00:39:51--> 00:39:58

so the reason I say say what happened all your clients used to sing all the stuff he did they all got nobody there. Nobody's you know

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

so

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

I was allowed to become Muslim is a no.

00:40:06--> 00:40:12

You have to you have to respect the integrity of these people. She would have pretended to do. So. She was honest. She was straight woman.

00:40:14--> 00:40:26

While Allah maybe she began to split. I don't know what that is. But he asked her, he said, Will you become Muslim? He said, No. What is you? Does he kick out? No. He got his family and he said give this woman

00:40:28--> 00:40:31

and they say they gave her so much he couldn't carry it

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

that was another mistake sleeping outside under a tree.

00:40:41--> 00:40:44

Heat up somewhere in the middle of the afternoon is living under a tree

00:40:45--> 00:40:46

and historically hang it on the tree.

00:40:48--> 00:40:50

There was a man who came there is our chance of

00:40:51--> 00:40:54

sleeping under a tree the sword there he took the sword

00:40:55--> 00:40:58

and now the biller he kicked him with his foot

00:41:00--> 00:41:05

and I woke up he saw the man standing there with a naked sword. The man said yeah Mohammed

00:41:06--> 00:41:08

who will save you from me now?

00:41:11--> 00:41:13

As well as Allah

00:41:14--> 00:41:18

the word desert Allah the man's archery and the sword dropped from his hat

00:41:21--> 00:41:25

Nathan picked up the sword put on his neck he said Who will save you from me now?

00:41:29--> 00:41:30

He said you will save me

00:41:32--> 00:41:36

the man said will you become Muslim? He said no

00:41:39--> 00:41:40

he said no you're not Soto is like

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

he's a no

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

go

00:41:46--> 00:41:50

it didn't have his neck he didn't say you don't become Muslim well Killa ago

00:41:54--> 00:41:56

this is the meaning of generosity

00:41:59--> 00:42:05

become their go to kindness nine kindness I want to tell you some other stories

00:42:09--> 00:42:24

not stories of great international incidents but small things because a small things illustrate these qualities much more than in a big incident. A person is acting consciously and he may have thought of a whole plan but small things are everyday things.

00:42:25--> 00:42:31

Three children they had is out there Rob slave is bought in the market.

00:42:32--> 00:42:34

Over avellana presents him to the

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

little boy maybe at that time he's about nine years old. So those are some takes him in the first thing he does is he frees him

00:42:43--> 00:42:45

and now he says he's living with

00:42:46--> 00:42:47

his free not a slave.

00:42:49--> 00:43:30

He had been captured from somewhere he was an African black African boy. So his father and uncle they were looking for him so after some months they threw whatever grapevine they heard that this boy is here in Makkah they came searching and they heard that he's with his the slave or of Muhammad Sana Sana so they came to the house and they said yes, we have come to for our son, and whatever ransom you want, whatever is price, we will be ready to pay. You want to buy him back. There's no price because he's not a sale. I freed him already. He's not a slave anymore. So there's a Can we take him because you're most welcome to take him. But ask him

00:43:31--> 00:43:31

if he wants to go.

00:43:33--> 00:43:37

Then Fair enough. Services are called the Why isn't he I said, you know this person. He said,

00:43:38--> 00:43:40

You know this person? Yes, you Monken

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

they said they have come to take you back.

00:43:45--> 00:43:46

They said I don't want to

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

I don't want to go

00:43:50--> 00:43:51

maybe harissa.

00:43:54--> 00:44:10

So the father and uncle they saw the boys happy this boy is well taken care of and so on. He said he doesn't want to go under no problem. So he said Yes, please, let him be with you. took him by the hand took him to the to the Kaaba and he stood there and said This boy is my son from today he will be called right when Mohammed

00:44:14--> 00:44:27

it only later when in Medina, Allah revealed the Ayatollah Plaza which prohibited adoption in this form, which is to give you a name to the adopted child, you can still take

00:44:29--> 00:44:59

a boy or a girl into your home and look after them like your children, which is what you are supposed to do anyway. But you can't give them your name, they will when they grow up, they will not be Muharram for you, and you they will not inherit from you normally so if you if you want them to inherit you will have to give them property and so on, gifted to them, because when if you die, then they will not be able to inherit from you because they are not actually your children. So this is the Islamic law as far as adoption is concerned, but absolutely no problem with adopt.

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

Thinking in the sense of bringing them home keeping them as your as your children, raising them, just like your children. So this will happen now

00:45:08--> 00:45:10

with his whole life, he grew up, he

00:45:12--> 00:45:20

married him to my mother. They had a son called Osama bin Zayed. Later on, he was married to Zane up with Josh.

00:45:21--> 00:45:36

And later on, when Josh was was divorced, and married, and all of that is a different story. But then we Hyzaar avellana says that one day when he was still a little kid, eight, nine years old, 10 years old. He said as soon as

00:45:37--> 00:45:39

we talking about kindness, so that was he

00:45:40--> 00:46:06

called me and told me gave me some money and said, go to the market and get me something. He said, I went on the way some of my friends were playing, I got involved in the in the game, I forgot about my job, which I was sent to do. And quite a long time passed on SLM, having sent the boy he got worried because here's this young boy and he went away. He hasn't come for a long time. So he went out, searching for him.

00:46:08--> 00:46:22

What does he find? He finds him playing with his kids. So he stood there, he called him then I got a fright because I was supposed to go and get this stuff. And now the words the restaurant, Michelle was here. So he said, I came there and I asked him what happened? He said, Yeah, so I'm very sorry. No, no problem.

00:46:23--> 00:46:41

Give me the money. I'll go and get the stuff. They will. Man my pocket this pocket that pocket. money's gone. He was playing his game somewhere. Some money fell out. I couldn't find it. So she has all the money he's lost. He's on the roads and smiled and told me go finish your game and come home and then he went to get whatever he had to get.

00:46:43--> 00:46:51

Another boy who was in the service officer salaam when he first went to Medina annasmith Monica de la.

00:46:52--> 00:47:01

Another Malik at that time was about 10 years old. He stayed in the service officer Selim throughout his life until the sauce was passed away. And one of the many

00:47:02--> 00:47:14

fala L of Anna's been Monica Delano is that from the time from the day Rasulullah passed away. And as we Malika Alonso used to see Rasul Allah, he sought asylum in a dream every single night.

00:47:15--> 00:47:24

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us the way to Nabil, the site owners are seldom once I make this give me once before I died, shall

00:47:25--> 00:47:27

we one of these molecules to see everyday

00:47:28--> 00:47:39

this Malik says I observed the progress on a sauna for 10 years in Madeira. And he said not one instance was there when he even frowned at me.

00:47:41--> 00:47:48

He said I was I was a boy. He told me to do things I would forget I would do them I would do them wrong all kinds of like a like any kid, you know.

00:47:50--> 00:47:59

He said not only did he not reprimand me, he didn't beat me. He didn't curse me. He did. He said he did not even frown at me in 10 years. Not even once.

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

Third boy,

00:48:04--> 00:48:07

George White, who used to hang out with a resource I used to be around.

00:48:10--> 00:48:19

Once didn't see him a couple of days past he asked the people isn't where is that? Boy, this persona is very sick and looks like he will die. Now, they take between

00:48:20--> 00:48:41

the two came into the house. This boy is obviously dying. last moments of his life. He's laying on the bed. His father is standing on one side of the bed. So as I said I went and sat down and he took the hand of the boy in his hand. And he said to the Y cuando la se la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah to be successful

00:48:42--> 00:48:45

is by his last moments he's dying, he looks at his father.

00:48:46--> 00:48:51

Father, the Jewish man by the Jewish boy. He looks at his father. The father says obey

00:48:53--> 00:48:55

our castle he said obey Mohamed Salah Salem

00:48:56--> 00:49:04

Jewish man he's obey Mohammed Salah said the boy says La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah and he passes away with his hand in the hand off then

00:49:07--> 00:49:12

when when was when the NABI or somebody's hand he will not release it until he gets

00:49:13--> 00:49:14

shot shall

00:49:18--> 00:49:19

What is His kindness?

00:49:20--> 00:49:25

But even the Jewish father of the boy tells him believe and and obey

00:49:28--> 00:49:31

where his kindness those are celebrities to

00:49:32--> 00:49:48

help his family at home. He would joke with them laugh with them as soon as Monday says that I challenged him I said yes, we'll make rotis with me. No, she's making bread. He says make bread lets you mix more but Leslie who makes it faster?

00:49:50--> 00:49:51

Which is that I made?

00:49:52--> 00:49:53

I made

00:49:54--> 00:49:57

a decision I made one and I made two or three I made four

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

and he still did

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

in which one?

00:50:01--> 00:50:02

It doesn't cook.

00:50:03--> 00:50:08

So she said, I laughed. I said, Yeah, you can't even make bread. See, I made 70 There was

00:50:12--> 00:50:16

what the hand of Muhammad touches, the fire does not touch.

00:50:20--> 00:50:21

He said, What can I do little book.

00:50:22--> 00:50:27

He said what the handle Muhammad has touched, the fire cannot touch.

00:50:30--> 00:50:32

So it's not that I don't know how to read

00:50:33--> 00:50:34

the Bible

00:50:37--> 00:50:39

when it is kindness,

00:50:41--> 00:50:42

what happened to us?

00:50:45--> 00:50:46

What happened was

00:50:48--> 00:50:49

heavenly stories.

00:50:52--> 00:50:53

Today we are characterized by hatred.

00:50:57--> 00:51:03

Our whole dialogue with hatred, our whole dialogue is different Cntr all dialogue is moving people away.

00:51:06--> 00:51:16

There is a lesson and people loved him so much that Allah subhanaw taala had to reveal Quran to say, leave him alone. He has a personal life. When he invites you for a meal, go eat the meal and live.

00:51:17--> 00:51:23

Don't go if he invites you for dinner, don't what time breakfast, go at the time when you are invited.

00:51:24--> 00:51:26

Eat the food and go.

00:51:27--> 00:51:28

Don't sit there talking.

00:51:30--> 00:51:36

And Allah said, He is shy to tell you what Allah is not shy to tell you read that of Surah Kalasa.

00:51:38--> 00:51:45

Why does that have to say all this? Because they loved him so much. Why did they love him so much? Because of this kindness

00:51:47--> 00:51:49

because of the bigness of heart because of the generosity

00:51:50--> 00:51:52

Salalah Harley Davidson

00:51:53--> 00:51:57

says, We have to really, really, really look at ourselves

00:51:58--> 00:52:07

and say, What have you become? Imagine what this world will be like? Imagine what the reaction of the non Muslims will be like if we become like Muhammad, sal Sal

00:52:09--> 00:52:11

will get object to somebody who Skyped me

00:52:13--> 00:52:19

who can object to somebody who's giving. We were sent to give we were not sent to take.

00:52:21--> 00:52:25

We were sent to take from Allah and give to the people.

00:52:27--> 00:52:30

But we are scratching around the dirt like chickens like everybody else.

00:52:31--> 00:52:36

Then we get worked up because people don't like us. Nobody likes somebody who takes

00:52:37--> 00:52:38

we like people who give.

00:52:41--> 00:52:45

We come to the ninth of the 10th which is truthfulness.

00:52:46--> 00:52:47

His title.

00:52:48--> 00:52:51

What was the title? A Saudi put I mean

00:52:53--> 00:52:56

a Saudi woman, the truthful and the trustworthy.

00:53:01--> 00:53:05

One what is truth? Allah subhanaw taala is Allah.

00:53:06--> 00:53:36

Allah Azza wa Aquila, O'Meara, say the truth is Europe. And that is the reason why La ilaha illa. Allah is a reflection of the truth. The one who accepts this is truthful. The one who denies it is untruthful. That is why the word Kaffir. For example, the word Mushrik is a definition term. It's not an insult. In Arabic, you call a farmer cover, not because he's a he's not a Muslim. Because he hides the seed.

00:53:38--> 00:54:08

He buries the seed. So the one who buries the seed is called a is not a critical target. That's his job. That is what he does is plant the seed. He's gonna go here because he is doing this. He's burying this building. So the gaffer is the one who denies the truth of what is the truth? Alico mirabito. Your rug is dark. The one who says there is no God is denying the truth. The one who's who's combining somebody with the horror of Allah is again denying the truth and he is doing something which is sherek he's making his mache because he's making sherek

00:54:09--> 00:54:13

Allah subhanaw taala called the Day of Judgment, the day of truth.

00:54:14--> 00:54:18

Why for two reasons, firstly, because that day will happen.

00:54:19--> 00:54:45

Radical Jamboard Huck Finn Shah, Taka Ihlara Bhima Abba, let the one the Day of Judgment is dark is truth and then the one who believes in that make a wait what is that you do what needs to be done? So it is called are your Bullock why? Because first of all, it will happen. It is the day of truth and secondly, because on that day only truth will prevail. There is no injustice on the Day of Judgment.

00:54:46--> 00:54:52

Law Zumaya. There is no doubt about this day. True, only truth will prevail. Injustice,

00:54:53--> 00:54:55

lying cheating will not work

00:54:56--> 00:54:58

nor deception on the day of judgment

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

or truthfulness

00:55:00--> 00:55:32

The quality of all Gambians, there's no nobody who lied. There's no one who was not truthful. But truthfulness is a very special quality of Rasulullah Islamism is a defining quality of ourselves. And again, millions of examples but some of the finest examples are in the revelation of the Quran itself. There are higher than the Quran for example, the opening ayat of surah Abba, the opening night of Saudi Arabia, where Allah subhanaw taala revealed I asked which were with due respect, I'm saying they were critical of rasa.

00:55:35--> 00:55:43

In so taba, Allah revealed in the bigger Surah saying that might be frowned at the blind man.

00:55:44--> 00:56:08

I was sitting with some of the surah of the Quran some of the wealthy people operate when Abdullah when motto of the law, he came into the into the masjid. And he was a blind man, he came to us with our setups. Rasulullah Salam didn't want to be disturbed in that meeting. So he turned and he looked at, at Abdullah doctor and he had a frown on his face. Now, remember,

00:56:09--> 00:56:40

the man is blind, he can't see that, too, he does not know that there was fraud, and then we just did not do anything as he didn't say anything to me, he didn't treat him in any way. So the man has no clue what has happened and was revealed yet and he said that binary fraud but maybe the poor man has is more deserving of your company, because he is you know, in search of truth whereas these rich people are not going to come to the truth no matter what and so on and so forth. You will if you read the opening passages of Java, you will see this now, point being here of truthfulness,

00:56:42--> 00:56:45

the eyes were revealed the ad referred to personally

00:56:47--> 00:57:00

Allah did not even saying that tell people that they should not say this, you know, this is what might have been the man who was within court supposedly the recipient of this round was not even aware it happened. Why didn't I

00:57:01--> 00:57:03

tell people that these are the

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

when they did not reflect on him positively. That is the greatest mark of truthfulness of

00:57:13--> 00:57:26

what Callum came to him. He conveyed here to Allah him IRT Allah said make the love of the earth which have come to you he said whether those is reflected on him positively or negatively, so to speak.

00:57:28--> 00:57:31

He conveyed similarly, I had also the hurry opening I

00:57:33--> 00:57:41

say the Ayesha hasaranga haha they did not like that which I was going to

00:57:42--> 00:58:08

say the Zara I believe that is the other wife that they had an issue with. So she used to even when I went there says when I used to give him honey water mixed with honey which he liked to drink so when he came here there's these two made a pact and they said when he comes to our to you or me will tell him there is some smell from your mouth which is unpleasant which is extremely sensitive to unpleasant smells.

00:58:10--> 00:58:12

So he said okay, I will not read this thing

00:58:13--> 00:58:26

to Allah Samantha said you have made haram on yourself, what Allah made halal because of your wives. Now, again, this is not a gender hokum for people, it is not a matter of you bother, it's not a matter of luck either nothing.

00:58:27--> 00:58:33

But these I can communicate with them as they came without any change.

00:58:34--> 00:58:41

And that is the quality of truthfulness. And that's why La Ilaha illa Allah is a reflection of truthfulness.

00:58:43--> 00:58:44

Final point

00:58:47--> 00:58:59

before we come to that, let me talk about one more incident of, of this issue of truthfulness is very very important, which refers to also being truthful not only in word but also in action. Abdullah

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

was one of this one was a seller, he was a

00:59:06--> 00:59:07

he was a brother.

00:59:09--> 00:59:39

By because they both went to the he and his family, I found out that they were what we call milk brothers. So the they had the nurse from the same mother. Now Abdullah was he became Muslim. He used even record where he then he left Islam, he became more than when he went back to Makkah. And then he started writing stuff and saying that this is where he so it was a very serious and extremely

00:59:40--> 00:59:45

repugnant action. So he was one of the seven who were sentenced to death by an Amazon seller.

00:59:46--> 00:59:49

So when after for the MCCA so now

00:59:50--> 00:59:58

I'm gonna very bizarre I went to his brother and he said, Say me. So I will take you to a salon you go and accept Islam

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

So he got him up he put him a martyrdom on the on the mural on Salah Murray took him to the cellar and sat him down before the reason they

01:00:12--> 01:00:20

took off his kneecap. And he said, Yeah, so I have come to accept Islam. Please accept me Islam La ilaha illallah Asha nagarsol

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

kept silent.

01:00:24--> 01:00:26

Abdullah has said it a second time.

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

They're surrounded by people, the lots of people that

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

remain silent. He said it a third time.

01:00:35--> 01:01:09

The reason I still remain silent, he said it a fourth time when there was a restaurant took his hand and accepted is Islam accept Islam and became Muslim. Therefore automatically all his sins are forgiven. The death sentence is gone is gone. Abdullah would have left the place. He later on he I mean not later on from that moment onwards. Very good Muslim, Angela, he lived a good Muslim all his life during the Khilafah was one of the louder he was an army commander. He was a governor and he died in South Africa. So Allah Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala gave him a good ending, also

01:01:11--> 01:01:31

somebody who becomes a Martha and fabricate halos, Mandela gives him the mercy of others rather than anyway. So when this happened when the man left as well, as Anna Selim said to the Sahaba, he said, quote, not one of you have taken up this man's head didn't to realize that I was giving you time to do that.

01:01:32--> 01:01:40

I did not accept Islam three times. They said jasola We didn't realize that because they're not used to nervous

01:01:42--> 01:02:02

ordering and they say yes, we were we we did not realize that one of them said yesterday, you should have simply signal with your eyes, you should have been to something we would have known that somewhere you should have signaled with your eyes. That vision reaction is what he said it is not the way of the Gambia to signal with their eyes.

01:02:04--> 01:02:06

So even deception,

01:02:07--> 01:02:09

by a gesture, a minimal gesture

01:02:10--> 01:02:12

was not something that

01:02:15--> 01:02:19

and that's the reason why I said do not lie even as a joke.

01:02:21--> 01:02:22

Because you get used to it.

01:02:24--> 01:02:31

One lie to lie three lies, you get used to it, and then the you start line, and then you become known as a liar. And that's a very, very

01:02:32--> 01:02:48

bad thing. And that's the reason why in the famous hobby somebody asked Mr. Garcia like can a Muslim commit murder? He said, Yes, sir. Can a Muslim commit Zina? He said yes. Can I Muslim drink alcohol? He said yes. And I'm Muslim. Still? He said yes. He said he has what what is it that a Muslim cannot do? Now he said that he cannot tell a lie.

01:02:49--> 01:02:50

He cannot tell a lie.

01:02:55--> 01:03:09

When I, when I first heard this had his eyes, what is so you know, all of the other things are much more serious. Until we realize that Assad will I mean, the truthful and the trustworthy are the is the is the title of ressourcer himself.

01:03:11--> 01:03:16

And this is the title that he gave to his alma, who is a Muslim, a Saudi Kalami

01:03:18--> 01:03:30

image this is the honor that Verizon gave us, so don't lose it by telling lies. A man came to a young man and he gave me Isaiah Salah full of all kinds of things. He said, I lose and I gamble I drink alcohol.

01:03:31--> 01:03:37

I don't want to do all the time and I'm stuck. I'm like this. What can I do very weak, but tell me I can leave wanting

01:03:39--> 01:03:44

to can't leave everything they want. What should I leave out of all this muscle? Well,

01:03:46--> 01:03:49

that's what I said to him. Leave telling lies.

01:03:51--> 01:03:51

nonetheless.

01:03:53--> 01:03:57

It's a matter of easy and he's not telling he's not ready to leave anything else.

01:03:58--> 01:03:59

Now he goes up

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

in the unit he wants to go to his

01:04:03--> 01:04:11

hangout place where he drinks with his friends, then it is to himself. If tomorrow I meet a wrestler when he asked me where he will ask him they will actually

01:04:14--> 01:04:17

I can't even tell you what I was thinking No, like, very shameful.

01:04:18--> 01:04:26

So you didn't. And the same thing happened for all anytime you want to do something huge. If the prophets Allah meets me and asked me What will I tell you?

01:04:27--> 01:04:32

I promise you I will not tell a lie. So I'm telling the truth. And the truth is so simple. How do I tell him

01:04:34--> 01:04:38

one thing which he gave up with just telling lies saved him from everything else.

01:04:40--> 01:04:41

That is the benefit of

01:04:43--> 01:04:47

of not realize, think about this. Why do we lie? We lie because we know we are wrong.

01:04:48--> 01:05:00

No, I mean, otherwise, I will lie. If you know you're right, you're right. You lie because you know you're wrong. So instead of making Toba instead of correcting yourself, instead of apologizing to somebody better

01:05:00--> 01:05:10

know what kind of thing you are lying about. You start to realize you try to hide and lie upon lie upon lie. You build this until it collapses on top of your head.

01:05:11--> 01:05:21

What is the biggest problem with telling lies? Is that you build a culture of suspicion. This is what our world is today. What do we teach our children trust, nobody

01:05:23--> 01:05:27

has ever did not even a world where they had to tell somebody trust nobody, they trust everybody.

01:05:29--> 01:05:32

Because people don't like I mentioned this before.

01:05:33--> 01:05:36

When I first went to South Africa, I was in a

01:05:37--> 01:05:49

minute invite invited all over the place, one of the place I invite with a lot of judges. And, and senior advocates. One of them said to me that there was a time in this country during the apartheid, which was the white

01:05:51--> 01:06:18

Protestant government, which was, you know, white supremacy, government. They're very religious people, their apartheid was part of the religion, so anti black segregation and so on. During that time, he said, a Muslim when he was when he had to bear witness in court, a Muslim did not have to swear on the Bible or on the Quran, God did not need to take an oath to give witness. Why? Because they said Muslims don't lie.

01:06:19--> 01:06:21

So who is saying this a Christian God?

01:06:23--> 01:06:31

A Christian is not given the privilege, a Christian has to put his hand on the Bible and say, I swear to speak the truth. And I think about the truth but the Muslim in a Christian government

01:06:33--> 01:06:38

does not have to take the oath, when he's bearing witness, because they said Muslims don't lie.

01:06:39--> 01:06:42

Very Sadly, no longer the case. muslims also have to swear

01:06:44--> 01:07:03

in and take an oath. At this we're having to a different meaning of the swear two months where they have taken those shots of so telling lies, builds a culture of suspicion. And of course, vital point is, if you don't lie, you don't need a good memory.

01:07:05--> 01:07:11

Nothing you don't have to remember or what are all this what is the whole story I built up nor the truth, that is the truth.

01:07:12--> 01:07:48

Now, elements of trustworthiness, two three things just and that's the last slide there, which is that Amana trustworthiness is to is a man of that somebody who it takes care of trust is not only material, Amara is also information. And sometimes the information is far more important and critical than money. So somebody tells you something in confidence, we have got a culture where if someone tells you something, government is at the foot, if you want something to spread, go and tell it to somebody who said don't tell anyone, then you are absolutely certain that this one, everyone who taught

01:07:49--> 01:08:09

this is a very nasty kind of habit we've got so they need to get out of that. So protecting whatever was entrusted to you. Amana will be questioned, whether it's money, whether it's information, whether it's any secret and so on and so forth. And please understand, it takes a whole life to build that it takes one incident to destroy it.

01:08:10--> 01:08:13

So, be very careful with what people interest to you.

01:08:15--> 01:08:25

And as I said, today, we have a really seriously we have to ask ourselves, that we live also so seldom is a case study for us to

01:08:28--> 01:08:30

think of is to study

01:08:31--> 01:08:39

because it is a case study which Allah subhanaw taala gave us as a cure for our fatal remedies, a fatal

01:08:41--> 01:08:48

maladies, which is what are fatal maladies are fatal. Merrilees is oppression. It is cruelty, it is lack of compassion.

01:08:49--> 01:08:53

It is injustice. Today, think about this world had justice.

01:08:55--> 01:09:12

Practically every problem that we have today would disappear. There would be no problem Iraq, there would be no problem in Syria, they would no problem. I want to start there with no problem anywhere. You would have a word of CSD, we have to get our lives in control. And it begins with me.

01:09:13--> 01:09:50

It begins with me, it's not about others. It's not about prescribing, you know, prescriptions for others. It's about looking at my own life and saying what is it in my life that I can straighten out to make it in line with the life of Muhammad Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa Leo's I was ask Allah subhanaw taala to be pleased with you and never to be displeased. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to choose the right things and to give us the idea and the guidance to choose that which is right which pleases Him and save us from that which is not pleasing or some other hand Allah will carry Hualalai he was savage made bureaucratically Armada.
