a man who
said either you sleep late come
back home well maybe you're at home or rasuna
fellows and Alvina and then for in US local Hadith Kitab Allah okay well how do you how do you Mohammed in some Allah who I think he was salam was more in depth to her. We're calling them the 13th Buddha or could be that in Dolla dolla 19. Now, from that
perspective you Beloved brothers and sisters ask Allah azza wa jal who gathered us in this message together CML keyano Seder mousseline Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Erminia Bill Alameen
wa Salam o allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He used many methods
to invite people to Islam
or to strengthen the Eman of the people who are already Muslims.
And one of these very effective methods is telling stories.
Allah subhanho wa Taala said in the Quran, * Susilo Kasasa love them yet effect karoun narrate the stories, so they can ponder And subhanAllah many times, I give a talk for maybe half an hour, 45 minutes, one hour. And in that one hour, I throw maybe one minute or two minutes story. And then you ask the people who are listening, what do you remember from that talk, they tell you the story Subhanallah the,
the methods or the way you tell the story, it will have a great effect on the outcome of what you're trying to achieve.
So the story we have today is a very well known story that is mentioned in Bukhari and Muslim.
And it's known to everybody and the story is about the men, the three men in the cave
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said that
from the people before you, there were three men traveling at night.
And all of a sudden they faced a major storm.
They found the cave they said let's go inside the cave while the storm come down and then we leave. As they were inside the cave. The storm became severe, and a huge rock fell from the mountain and completely blocked the entrance of the cave.
Now you could imagine there was no electricity, no cell phones, no nothing. Three men inside a cave complete darkness, nothing.
So they looked at each other and they said the only way to be saved from this situation that we are in is by every single one of us. Begging Allah azza wa jal with the best most sincere Amel they have ever done to remove the rock.
So the first one said
Yeah, Allah and I'm paraphrasing. Yeah, Allah
my parents used to live with me.
And I had a
rule in the house that my parents have to eat first. They have to drink first before my wife and my watch my children.
And one day Yeah, Allah I was late coming back home. And when I came back, they already slept. So yeah, Allah.
I got the milk. And I held the vessel in my hands and a weighted by their bed while they are sleeping.
While my children are crying by my feet hungry and thirsty, and I waited for them to wake up. And then I offered them the milk and after that I fed my family. Yeah, Allah, if I did that, for your sake, yeah, Allah removed the rock, and the rock moved, but it's not enough for them to exit. The second guy
started, he said, Yeah, Allah. I used to have a cousin that I loved more than any man loves a woman. And one day she came to me asking for financial help.
And I told her, the only way I would give you the help is if you permit me to commit the fact he shared with you. So she refused and she left. Later on, she came back, but this time she was in dire need. And I gave her the same conditions.
And I offered her 120 Durham
and she agreed.
And yeah, Allah while I was
about to commit the fat Isha, I was in a position where a husband is with his wife. She looked at me and said it tequila, when the heart in Ellerbee hockey, fear Allah and do not break the seal unlawfully. And if you want to do something like this, do it through marriage. Yeah, Allah. I stopped and I let her go and I let her keep all the money. Yeah, Allah. If I did that sincerely for your sake, Ya Allah remove the rock and the rock moved, but still they cannot exit. Here comes the third person in the cave. He said yeah.
I employed some laborers in my farm.
And after they completed the job, I paid every single one of them. But one of them argued I deserved double than everybody else. And there was a an argument between me and him and he left here Allah without taking his salary.
A while, long while later the man came back and asked for his wage for his salary. And I said, and I told him you see this valley full of cows and camels and goats and even the slaves all these are yours. And he said to me, yeah, Abdullah latest as it be.
Oh, Abdullah, Are you mocking me all I'm asking you is for my salary. He said, I took your salary, and I invested it for you. So what you all you see right now is all yours. Ya Allah He took everything and did not leave anything. Yeah, Allah. If I did that for your sake, Ya Allah removed the rock, and the rock was removed, and they exited. And the Hadith ended here.
My brothers and sisters, there are so many lessons from this hadith.
the first man
showed us the highest level of bearer ever.
The highest level of obedience and respect to the parents ever.
And you'll probably hear me mentioned that a lot. And of course, there's a reason not because I'm out of material. How's your relationship with your parents? Yeah.
you made the phone call right now, to your mother or to your father?
Would they hang up in your face? Or would they make it too out for you?
Would you here?
May Allah be pleased with you? May Allah protect you? Are you here? Why are you calling me?
How's the relationship with the parents? Yeah, one Allah He lately?
and the word youth varies from 12 to 14.
Complaining about their parents.
And I'm not talking about abusive parents. I'm talking about regular parents who love their children. And they are demanding what normal parents aren't demand.
The youth are complaining from this easiest thing that the parents are asking. I cannot bear them anymore. I cannot take my parents anymore. Are you want to leave the house I want to leave them and never alone.
You forgot what they went through.
Within with the smallest hardship, you immediately decide
to dissolve them and ignore them. And you forgot that one night
of what your mother went through. When you were young. When you got sick.
You forgot all that. And you cannot be patient because they are mainly asking you to do things that will protect you but they are not fitting your desire.
I cannot take them anymore. They are too much. Why do you think Allah azza wa jal specifically said that when they become old
make sure you take care of them. Because when they become old things change at one.
Someone keeps repeating the same thing over and over again.
Somebody may be demanding things a lot more than usual. And this is where your reward comes up.
If the parents are nice and kind and loving, your
treatment of being kinda nice and loving is normal, but the reward, the reward increases when you are more patient
even if the parents
being more like offensive than normal
and they're bothering you
to what you consider something that is unbearable.
Still do their better. Why? Because Allah said what we're saying in Sun Valley they do it as you will see here, do it as a birder. Not every single a bear that is easy. That is a bad also, if you are blessed with great parents and hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen. The bill becomes very easy. But
the real bill is when the parents are demanding
when the parents are not what you want them to be and you still being patient.
You have rasool Allah, what is the most beloved animal to Allah?
A Salah to Allah waqia praying on time, next year Rasul Allah did really well he then being obedient to the parents. So my brothers and sisters, because we have a lot of lessons Allah He if the parents are still alive, and I know I repeated that many, many times. But you know,
in our brother
three weeks ago, when our brother passed away,
do you think his kids he was 44 years old? Right? Do you think his kids knew that? That was the last day they ever see their father?
love Allah, they did not know. Similarly, one. Similarly, my brothers and sisters,
every single day could be the last day you ever see your father or your mother? Make sure they're always pleased with you. Always, always pleased with you go out of your way to make sure that they are happy
Riedel Rob min riddle up.
The pleasure of Allah is from the pleasure of the parents.
That's a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now.
If the parents have already passed away, yeah, one.
There are still means
where we can make them earn Azure and reward. Perform hygiene on their behalf, performed on their on their behalf, give sadaqa on their behalf, constantly make dua for them. sponsor an orphan on their behalf, sponsor a widow on their behalf, build the masjid on their behalf, build the hospital on their behalf, whatever it is all that in sha Allah Allah, we'll get to them. Now let's come to the second guy.
The second guy
gave the highest level of abstinence if
was in a position
that is extremely hard to resist.
And he admitted that this is the most beloved woman to his heart. And he had an opportunity to perform and do the fascia and there's no one there no one
and there was no one there and was the real woman right in front of him. Now we have people addicted to pornography.
Where they are looking at women on screens
and they're performing the fascia.
This addiction here actually will ruin your life and you will look or ruin your married life and ruin everything. Because it does not stop right there. These are the footsteps of the shaitan It starts like this by watching and this and that and then you upgrade
and upgrade an upgrade until you commit to real fascia
and you will have no more interest in real woman and your married life will be miserable.
Add to that of course all the sins that you are earning and add to that dying while you are performing that sin.
You will be disrupted the way you died.
Ask Allah my brother. If you're being tested with this masiva ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to help you quit
put the Quran put a book of Hadith next to your computer. There is no human being with any common sense or any Eman
that we see the Quran and we'll watch something haram next to it
remember the LM yeah LM B and Allah Euro remember that Allah is watching
another lesson from the second guy is that never ever give up never give up on ordering good and forbidding even that woman in that tough situation in a situation that is impossible and we said that too many times we say that about people this guy impossible to become a better Muslim this guy impossible to become a Muslim.
She was in a situation that this impossible for this guy to stop.
But that did not stop her from ordering good and forbidding evil. She told him it tequila so anytime we see someone do not say this guy will be guided hola you never know. She made
she she said a statement that made this guy Stop it tequila fear Allah Subhan Allah you never know what moment your words will go straight and penetrate to the heart of the person you're talking to, don't ever give up on admirable maruf and now he anil munkar
the third lesson from this second guy is you see the result here one when we do not give the right circuit.
When we when we do not give this occurred the proper amount of zakat that would lead people to seek the money through haram means.
But if every Muslim every Muslim pay there is a cut the right on the right amount Wallah you will not find one poor Muslim on earth.
Then we come here one to the third guy.
showed us the highest level of honesty.
If the man came back to him, the worker and he told him this is your salary. It would have been great. He's not sinful. Give me my salary. Here's your salary. Does he have to invest? Does he have to invest the money for the guy? No, he doesn't have to. And he could have told him okay, I invested 5050 There's nothing wrong with that either. He puts effort Subhan Allah take everything.
Now compare this guy.
To our situation. Yeah, one.
We hire somebody to do a job. And when they are done with the job, we never pay them.
We never pay them on time.
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that Allah said Salah satin, and our first home young woman Kiana.
Three kinds of people, I am their opponent. Allah is their opponent. On the Day of Judgment. One of them is a man who hired someone and completed the job and he never paid him. Allahu Akbar, Allah was the opponent of that person.
And unfortunately, maybe we don't see it much here. But when I used to live, in certain countries, wala heat was so
it was the norm.
23456 months, laborers that are way that are working under 120 degrees. They tell you I haven't been paid for three, four or five months and the payment is
three $400 a month.
Another problem was it kills me. It kills me when when a Muslim brother tells me
for example, he asked me for
electrician, a plumber this or that. And I give him the Muslim brothers name. said Brother please. No Muslims.
Allah it kills me when I hear that brother. I have only been hurt from Muslims
the statement hurts a lot. Yeah, one. We're supposed to support one another. We're supposed to be helping one another to the utmost level.
But unfortunately, we abused one another and we want to take advantage of one another, the same item, the same job if it was done by another
Muslim we are with a big smile and no questions asked, but because he's a Muslim, I have to do my best to haggle him till he dies
and to abuse him till he dies.
All like when brother told me, I was on my way back from work and I was exhausted. I work 1213 hours a day, a brother called me and said, please stop by my car is not working. He's a mechanic.
I stopped by his house, it took me two hours to fix his car. And when I finished, he said, he says, Allahu khairan.
Being a mechanic is not his hobby.
This is his source of income. You use them for two hours, give him something just like Allah does not pay the bills.
Or someone comes to your house and you tell him I want I want 123 done and this is a very common in our community. I want 123 done, and when he finishes or when he comes over, Please brother, you're my brother. There's 567 Also, with the same amount we dealt with we agreed on Yaffe
does not work like this.
It does not work like this.
A cornucopia of stuff that Allah put stuff in novella for rhyme.
Bismillah Hua was salat wa salam ala mon learn via that.
One of the main thing that saved these people Yeah, one is that oh heat.
When they were inside, they had Eman believe
they had strong Eman that Allah Allah cliche in Kadir Allah can remove anything.
And they begged Allah azza wa jal and they begged Allah subhanahu wa Tada and they got what they want.
This hadith told us that we are allowed to make tawassul with our righteous deeds instead of the fake and wrong to us so that people do there is an official Halal tawassul which is your Allah with this sample that I have done with this sadaqa I gave your Allah cure my son, your Allah make me pass in my exam. I'm allowed to do that and this hadith proved it
another thing that this hadith told us another major lesson to our of Allah Allah that Allah Hafiz should
know Allah remember Allah when everything is at ease Allah will remember you when you are in hardship
and yeah, when
the question that presents itself
if I was the fourth guy
do I have
do you have a hammer?
Do you have a hammer?
If you were the fourth guy in the cave, do you have are they are all stuck because of you? Do I have Harmon? Is this something that I done? Sincerely, not my wife, not my father. No one knows except Allah is that I'm in like that yeah. One was was I sent him said whosoever have a Kabir whosoever can have that nobody knows about that emotion do that.
Do we have something like that? Do we have something or everything is known to everybody? Pictures. I'm next to the cab. I'm performing. Everybody has to know that I'm performing camera. Everyone has to know that I gave sadaqa everybody there's nothing left for between me and Allah. Nothing left with the social media. Nothing is left. I'm here. I'm there. Constantly. People showing that our man one brother posted the picture. He's giving money to a guy and he's something with the money getting the money. The brother was in need so I'm helping him yeah happy and I'm encouraging others stood Ya Allah.
There's nothing left yet. Well, if I was the fourth guy, do I have anything to show?
Do I have anything?
Immediately I want to record in the middle of the night while everyone's sleeping with Allah. He could be the reason for us to be saved from the punishment of the grave from the Hellfire from everything. Just to recognize that I am consistent. I do them all the time.
I'm in that nobody knows about $5 that I look left and right, nobody in the message, whatever that amount is. There's an orphan that not even my wife, no one knows. But I sponsor him all the time. Every time I travel to my country, I give them the money. I travel and I hide it as much as I can. I will write checks for the systems they used to hide their good deeds just like me and you hide our evil deeds.
And finally, yeah, when this had you showed us the power and the strength of Da da can move rocks.
Da can move rocks don't ever give up. No matter how dark it is, no matter how dark it is. Sunshine is coming. No matter how long is the night Fraser is coming.
Keep the hope don't ever give up. Repent to Allah azza wa jal come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala you will find Allah subhanho wa Taala a full on Rahim
