00:02:40 --> 00:02:42

So this area was revealed

00:02:44 --> 00:02:45

about the unsolved

00:02:46 --> 00:03:25

the unsolved are the people who welcomed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he migrated from Mecca to Medina, and it was revealed specifically about a certain story. And this story is mentioned in Bukhari and Muslim. A man came to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he was starving. He was very, very hungry. And he asked us what allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to host him and give him food. Rasul allah sallallahu Sallam he sent a word to his wives asking if they have any food at home.

00:03:27 --> 00:04:18

My beloved brothers and sisters, one wife after the other replied, era surah Allah, we have nothing except water Subhanallah the houses of the best man ever created, had nothing except for sort of sort of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked who will host this man from among the unsolved one of the unsolved is, he said, Yeah, rasool Allah, I can host him. And this man went to his wife and asked her, What do we have for food, we have a guest from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the woman said, The wife said, We don't have much, except a little food, little food left for our for our children. So that man told her go try to put the kids to sleep without eating, and

00:04:18 --> 00:04:59

we will give this food to our our guests. Subhanallah so when she prepared the food, put the kids to sleep, and prepare the food. He told her the husband said turn off the light. When you serve the food, turn off the light and let's sit down me and you with him and pretend give the impression that we are eating so he will not feel bad Subhan Allah subhanaw taala so they did that the man ate was very happy and he left. What happened? The next morning when he left Sahabi went to pray Fisher Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He told him

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala admired what you and your wife did with your guest last night. And these were this ayah was revealed when Allah subhanaw taala said, Were you Thea Runa Allah and foresee him? Well Oh can I be him has salsa, and they favor others, even though they themselves are very hungry Subhan Allah. So my brothers and sisters, our topic today, it's called an Arabic ether. And the verb was in that a yoke Sirona. The plural II thought the closest translation is altruism. And that means selfless concern for the well being of others. When you put others concern and welfare before your own, when you favor others before yourself Subhanallah and that is a very high level of,

00:06:01 --> 00:06:47

of morals. This is a really great o'clock to have that Nirma to have that action of, of ether. This is something that me and you, we should really try to implement in our life when we are treating treating others. We have many stories today about the ether of Rasulullah Salam and the ether of the companions Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and the hadith is also an Bukhari, a woman came to him and brought him a very nice piece of cloth. Rasool Allah says Allah, she did it herself. So rasool Allah SallAllahu sallam, he took it and he wore it. When he was wearing it. A man came to him and said, Yeah rasool Allah, I like this. This is very nice. I like it. Can I have it? Sort of sort of allah

00:06:47 --> 00:07:26

sallallahu Sallam went inside and took it out and brought it back to him and gave it to him. So the people were very upset. They said, Why did you do that? Don't you know that rasool Allah Islam never refuses a request? And don't you know that also salam needed it? So the man said, I swear by Allah that I did not ask for that. So so I can wear it. I wanted it. So it can be my shroud. My Kevin, when I die Subhan Allah, He wants something that touched the body of Rasulullah. Salam to be his Kevin. And the point is, he also was SLM needed that

00:07:27 --> 00:08:10

that cover and he still gave it to the sahabi even though he needed it. And we have many stories about the ethos of the Sahaba themselves. And the famous story, which is also in Buhari, when the Maharaja Nene came from Mecca to Medina, and every and Saudi open their homes to the to the MaHA Julene SubhanAllah. The famous story of Abdul Rahman even out and said, Ben Arabia, Saudi Arabia Subhan, Allah He opened his door to Rahman, and he told him, I can share half of my wealth with you, my brothers and sisters, let's pause for a second imagine that

00:08:12 --> 00:09:00

side had $1 million, for example, he could have given him 5000 10,000 50,000 Just to show him that how, how generous he is and how much he likes to obey Rasul Allah says, he doesn't have to divide half of his wealth. And not only that he had he also said, I have two wives. You could choose one of them, I will divorce her and when her to it does over you could marry her, Allahu Akbar. This is real ethos. But at the Rama mouth, he told him, may Allah reward you may Allah bless you, and bless your wives and bless your property. Just show me where is the market and Subhanallah we all know how, how such a shrewd businessman was Abdurrahman and he he became very rich just by doing business

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

in Medina.

00:09:03 --> 00:09:48

Another story about the Sahaba was, you know, II thought is that Abdullah abnormal, or the Allahu Anhu Allah, He said, A man was given as a gift, one head of a sheep, you know, to eat it. So he said to his son, take it to my neighbor, because they have not eaten in few days. So he took it and gave it to the neighbor. The neighbor told his son take it to my other neighbor over there, because they have not eaten for a few days. Long story short, it went to seven houses and it came back to the first person, Allahu Akbar, everyone's trying to favor their neighbors, and others over them over themselves.

00:09:50 --> 00:09:59

And the famous story in the Battle of Yarmouk, when one of the one of the soldiers was dying, and someone brought him water

00:10:00 --> 00:10:38

He said, No, no, no, no. Give it to my brother. He's more in more need of water than me. So they went to his brother to give him the water said no, no, give it to that other guy over there. He needs it more than me. Subhanallah and when they get to that guy, he's already dead. They went to the first one he passed away and the second one passed away. They used to even even in matters of life and death. They used to favor others. Allahu Akbar, where are we from? From this Aflac. Subhanallah and, you know, one of the stories that I love is that when the unsalted you know, the measuring came and lived in Medina, when the Ansari used to go and pick up the dates.

00:10:40 --> 00:11:22

They used to take the fresh dates after they picked them up, and they take them to Omaha to the Maharajas house. And they tell them, pick whatever you want, and then give us the rest. They don't want to pick the best or the unsought and then give the ones that are bad to the to them are hygiene Subhanallah so they give them the dates, and they go and they will they will come back later to pick up whatever they did not choose Subhanallah they would come back and they would find that they will hygiene, pick the bad dates, and they left the good ones to the answer. Or the low who's better Subhan Allah, so they keep quarreling, insisting that the other one should take the best dates.

00:11:22 --> 00:12:09

Yeah, Allah and the famous story of our mother, Aisha Radi Allahu Anna, when Amara, the Allah and this is an this is an ultimate story of ether. When Allah Allah Han was a miracle, I mean, and he was stabbed and on his deathbed, he sent his son to a shadow the Alana, and he told her, he told him go and ask her, if she permits me to be buried next to my beloved two friends Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Abu Bakar on the Allah Han. So actually Allah Anna, she said, I've been having that that spot for myself. I want to be buried next to my father. I want to be buried next to my husband. I want I had that spot to myself. But you know what I'm gonna give it to, to our about the

00:12:09 --> 00:12:57

Allah one. So when the sun company came back, and he said, Yeah, I mean, she she agreed and she allowed you to have that spot. So amore, Radi Allahu Allah said, Okay, when you are carrying me and you're going to bury me, ask her again. Ask her again. Maybe now she was shy that because I'm still alive. She doesn't want to say no to me. Ask her again. If she said okay, then you bury me. And if not, then you can bury me in the graveyard of the Muslims Subhan Allah, she gave us that lesson spot next to the best to men Subhan Allah to get she gave it to Omar, which we visit every time we go to Medina and we send our salaam upon them. My brothers and sisters, II thought when was the last time

00:12:57 --> 00:13:43

you gave something that you love to someone else because they needed it. You favorite someone else over yourself? Subhanallah go right now and open your closet. You will find clothes in your closet that you have not worn in such a long time. Very long time. And you still saying to yourself? No, no, no, I'm gonna wear it one day. I'm gonna wear it one day and you do not give it to others that might be in need of it. Subhanallah so not as sometimes when we are asked to give some of the clothing that we have. We go and we look which shirt has a hole in it? Which pens has a stain in it. Well, no, no, no, no. Go today. Now let's practice what we are learning. Go today in sha Allah Tala

00:13:43 --> 00:13:54

and pick something that is nice and clean, and something that you love and give it to others. Give it to somebody who who really needs it.

00:13:56 --> 00:14:40

When you are presented with with for example, my younger brothers and sisters, you're presented with cupcakes give the cupcake that you love to your brother. Give your favorite part of that of the food of the chicken give it to that to someone who really likes it also, so that shows that your Allah I did this for your pleasure. I'm doing it for the sake of Allah all our honor for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and ethos is a very, very high level of UCLA. And just a note on the side, I noticed that some of us fall into this mistake without even noticing when we are giving some of the clothing to the people who needs them. I noticed that we put them in garbage bags.

00:14:42 --> 00:14:46

My brother, my sister would you like someone to give you a gift in a garbage bag.

00:14:48 --> 00:14:59

When we give each other gifts do we give each other gifts in a garbage bag or we pick the most beautiful gift bag and we give it Subhanallah I know the quantity may be as big at least put

00:15:00 --> 00:15:34

In a box, but in a garbage bag, that doesn't look good at all Subhanallah that already the brother is or the sister or the family, they are already suffering and you give them a gift in a garbage bag that doesn't feel good at all. Always treat others the way that you would love to be to be treated. And I will end with this. The best form of ether. The best form of ether is when you put what Allah loves, before what you love, this is our life. This is the best ether

00:15:36 --> 00:16:18

my sister Allah loves to see you dressed in the proper hijab even though yourself you know it's too hot it is, you know, you get the you know, it bothers you maybe it gives you a headache and but you know what, Allah loves it. Allah loves it. This is ether, every time my sister you go out of the house with the proper hijab, remember that you are favoring what Allah loves over what you love, my brother, you would love to have your own big house. But you are living in rent because you don't want to go into Riba and buy a house and river because Allah subhanaw taala told us and warned us that you are declaring war on Allah and His Prophet when you deal with riba and you're still living

00:16:18 --> 00:17:02

in a house with rent until you can afford it. Subhanallah so this is ether, you don't like to go to that place you don't like to to eat this. You don't like to drink that you don't like to be with this kind of people. Just because Allah subhanaw taala told us not to do that. And you favor what Allah loves over what you desire. That is the real ethos Subhan Allah, so let's practice this great a bed of ether, just like the Sahaba used to practice in sha Allah Allah. May Allah subhana wa Tada make our last deeds our best deeds. May Allah make our last words that in law Allah may Allah subhanaw taala gather us under his shade on there is no shade except his shade. I mean your anatomy,

00:17:02 --> 00:17:17

please brothers and sisters, subscribe and share these videos with others so we can all benefit in sha Allah Allah, may Allah reward you immensely and interrupt me Subhanak along with the handshake, so don't let it stop you okay when I told my like body,

00:17:18 --> 00:17:19


00:17:21 --> 00:17:26

and levena sala de he force your own
