Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam
this particular story is what I would consider to be the most fascinating story told to us by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So it's one of the most fascinating I personally consider it to be very fascinating story. And
so what I will do in sha Allah Tala is we're going to go over the story, right? And then we're going to go back look at each case mentioned in this story. The story basically contains three particular cases. It was narrated by Abdullah and Omar May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with him. And his father, I'm gonna talk he said, and the hadith is collected actually, it's collected about Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim. And they're, you know, different versions of the Hadith, little variations that are not contradicting, they're actually complementary. So I'm loving I'm gonna set Semir to Allah. And Abdullah bin Amara Radi Allahu Anhu Mercado set me up to rasool Allah allah sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam airport. He said I heard the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say
in Allah Casa tuna ferryman Kana publikum.
That three men, three individual three men
of those who were before you who came before you who lived before you
set out on a journey, they were traveling in another narration, it says that they were walking,
right Hatao one maybe to rely on him for the Hello.
And this was the case.
In this particular narration is narration it says that until nightfall, you know, it was dark. So they decided to, they found a cave and they decided to seek shelter in that cave. In another narration.
It says that
rain caused them to seek shelter.
And both are correct, complimentary. So it was nighttime. And sometimes in the old days they would travel even if it's, you know, they would actually rest outdoors, even if it's at night, unless they're afraid of something rain, severe weather condition, anything of that nature or if there are some dangerous predators or animals around.
That's when they seek shelter in a cave. Right.
So when they entered this particular cave, the Prophet sallallahu I think he was setting them and said Fenn Hadera. Sokolow terminology, I believe, has said that ALLAH in him will have
a rock, road roll the over, right fell down and settled at the mouth of the mouth of this particular
this particular cave, so it came from the top of the mountain, and it's settled, blocking the entrance, or the opening, or what is known as the mouth of the cave.
For Kalu, the prophets of Allah they said they've said so they said to one another, lie on a G caminhada. The Sahara Illa, untether Allah have you saw the American they said nothing will save us from this situation. Unless we supplicate or turn to Allah subhanaw taala and beg Allah azza wa jal by the virtue of the most righteous deed
that we have done.
Okay. So for Karla you know minimum and again in different narrations you will find different order, but it's the same, right. So one of them said, the prophesy Salim said Allahumma Kennedy mboweni che Hanukkah Bian.
Oh Allah, I had my parents, both of them in their old age, meaning they were living with him he was taking care of them. Welcome to the Abaco Kubla Houma
and I used to offer milk to no one before them. So they were the first to receive milk. Right. And milk obviously dairy products were were primary. You know, they were they were they were meals they were. It was not just a drink. Sometimes that's the entire meal. Right? Someone's breakfast could be fresh, fresh. Camel milk, or goat's milk. That's it.
For now, Abby Tala Bucha Jerry Yeoman
Hello Hema Hatton AMA. So he said that one day
I went far away in search of grazing ground. You know, they used to take their cattles and I went too far so by the time I came back it was too late they had already fallen asleep

And I was and I did not like to disturb them wake them up. And at the same time, I didn't want to break my habit and offer that milk to anyone before them.
So ladies do so I stood there waiting for them to wake up. Well Ha ha ha.
And holding that bowl of milk until the state of Oklahoma had debacle federal waiting for them to wake up until actually Dawn break until federal came in. While sibiya to wait a while ona in the academy and my own children were actually crawling by you know, they were at my feet. Right looking at that milk or wanting that milk

The Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam said fanfare fanfare Raja chi alas on your own and hello Yemen.
The Rock actually moved.
There was a shift. The Rock moved,
creating an opening. But it was not big enough for them to escape.
but they knew that they were on the right path.

From Faraja T sock Raju, they are unknown. So the owner Furuya Mina, right, I finished the second person said oh Allah.
I had a cousin, female cousin that I was in love with.
And another narration says that I loved her more than you know, then anyone can love another person. Or as much as any man would love a woman. He loved her so much.
And he said I wanted to have a relationship with her. So she refused.
Eventually, she went through some financial trouble.
And she came to me asking for help for financial aid. So I offered her this isn't his confession and I offered her 120 pieces of gold dinar coins of gold
with the condition that she lets me have a relationship with her or do whatever I want with her.
So he said when I she took that money and when I approached her, she said to him, fear Allah and do not commit this except through the proper means meaning through what proper marriage and Nikka through how that means. So he said and that's when I walked away from her and left the money with her.
if I did that for yourself
relieve us from this and rescue us this is in his
the province of Allah Allah and said I've said the rock again for the second time shifted, moved made a movement. The openings become bigger yet it's not big enough for a person to escape through it, but they knew they were on the right path. So the third man set the third individual

The third person said Oh Allah,
I hired some laborers
and paid them their wages
who departed without taking his duty.
He didn't get his pay. In another narration, it says that the pay that they agreed upon was
Some rice, that was that was the compensation. In another narration, it says actually, that this individual, this laborer, this contractor, this individual was not happy, because he worked harder than the rest of the laborers. So he demanded that he gets paid than the amount that was agreed upon.
And this man being principled and being fair, he said, No, we agreed upon this. This is what I'm going to give you. So he was upset. He didn't take it. If he walked away.
The man says in his Dre now remember that they're all making what do ya like they're confessing their this is a conversation between them and Allah. Allah revealed it to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, the man said, Oh Allah, I took that, that money or that amount, right. If it was rice, he sold it. He said, and I invested it, not saved it, invested it for him.
And that investment grew into a large amount of wealth. In this particular narration, it says, There were camels,
cows, sheep, and even slaves that were purchased from this money that grew into a large amount of wealth. In another narration that says that the money grew into a large amount in the form of cattles that filled the valley between two mountains. So he said eventually this man came to me or Allah. And he said to me, oh servant of Allah, He Abdullah or slave of Allah, pay me my money, give me that little amount. I'm desperate now. Give it to me. So he said, I took him to that valley. In a particular narration. It says that he took him by the hand, and he showed him he said, Whatever you see between these two mountains belongs to you. He kept his separate from the rest of his wealth.
So the man looked at him, the laborer looked at him and he said, Don't make fun of me. I don't have time for this. Just give me the money. And let me leave
He said by Allah, this is your money it grew into this
became as well.
So he said, Oh Allah, you know that that man took everything with him. Not he did not leave a single thing behind. He did not leave a single animal behind. He took it all. And I didn't stop him. Oh Allah. If I did that, for your sake,
to please you, then relieve us from this rescue us, save us from this. The prophets of Allah they said he said, The Rock rolled over.
And it was wide open now from Taco yam Shan and the three men left peacefully, this is the story.
Now someone will come and say mashallah, this story is beautiful, amazing. What is the moral of this story? And usually it's listed in the chapter of, for instance, Imam. And now we Rahimullah in the first chapter, the chapter, the chapter of loss, sincerity. And indeed, sincere It is a common denominator or common factor in this because all of them were sincere, because each one of them said that I am doing this for the sake of Allah. But this hadith, if it's up to me, right, we would be sitting here tonight, all night, reflecting on this hadith.
I was asking one of the shoe.
I said, How many lessons were you able, he said, I gave a lecture one time.
And we extracted more than 25 lessons from this video.
And I know some people that did 40 lessons. And we can sit and perhaps if we reflect and ponder upon this hadith, and every detail of it, in this particular story, we probably could come up with 50 different lessons. So let's go back and take it case by case. If you don't mind. The first case is a case of a man. Right? Who actually used to honor his parents.
The second case is a case of a man who had passion or love for a female relative of his, and he was about to commit fascia. He was about to commit an indecent act, and he refrained from it.
Right. And as a form of redemption, He actually gave away the money and got nothing for it.
And the third man was a person that had some financial transaction dealing. Now let's first of all reflect on the fact that there were three. And by the way, just a side note, which is relatively, you know, relevant. When we travel the province or sudden I'm said rocky shaytaan, a traveler alone. Yanni, a person who travels alone, alone, or is a devil. That hadith is not like the most authentic hadith, but that a person who travels alone is the devil traveling alone or even staying alone. Right? Is not a positive good thing. Unless you have to. So it's always good to have what
companionship. Right? Well, rocky vanish a cannon, and two travelers are two devils. In other words, any one of them can actually tempt the other to do something wrong. What's the latitude.
And when you have three, which is the least amount of this is the smallest number to create a GEMA to create a congregation or a group or a community? Right. So let's keep that in mind a shallow town.
One of the most beautiful reflections on this is the fact that these three individuals, right actually represent the community.
a community of believers in each one of them had a quality
and a characteristic that is essential
to maintain a healthy community.
The first was a man who was kind to his parents.
Right, who was dutiful to his parents, someone who knows who is full of grace. Who knows that part of our responsibility is to take care of those who took care of us. So he was a grateful person. Now they were all sincere. We said sincerity is the common common quality that they all have. But in addition to that, one of them was willing to take care of his parents. Not only was he taking care of his parents, but he was going out of his way. Right? The second man was a man who has a level of decency. Yes, he did something out of weakness and out of passion and all of that, but yet he still had decency and
him. And he was he was generous. He was generous, his cousin 120. Do you know
and the third person and he refrained from doing something and see indecent. The third person was someone who had, not only did he have a manner, trustworthiness, but he went out of his way to demonstrate that Amana and they said, Without these three qualities, you can't have a healthy society.
A society that does not have these three components, qualities, is not a society that will be able to survive for too long.
Right? It's going to decline, it's going to fall apart. And perhaps this is one of the lessons ALLAH SubhanA. Allah wants us to learn from this, this particular story now.
the man who came to to his parents, and he found them in that state, did he have to do that? Question is did he have to do that?
I'm asking you a question. What do you think? Did he have to do that?
He could have What's that?
Yeah, give the children and then whenever the parents are waking them up. So sorry, right. But Subhanallah he did not want to disturb his parents.
He did not want to disturb his parents. And this is a lesson for for all of us, and especially for our children. We really have to,
you know, part of being dutiful and respectful to our parents is what?
Don't disturb them. Don't disturb them of their sleep indefinitely. You don't want to disturb them if they're awake. Because sometimes some people think that, okay, my parents don't disturb them if they're awake, don't do anything that this disrupts the order of their life. Right? Why? Not only because they have helped upon us that these are, you know, as parents, we know, when your child used to sleep, right? And your arms.
And you don't want to disturb them? What did what did? What did you know, especially mothers, what do we do?
Right, you could be actually holding them in the wrong position. Right? Your arm would be hurting, your muscles will be sore, but you still hold that child because you don't want to disturb them. Especially if you have a colicky child, you're like so excited that they finally fell asleep. Right? You don't want to disturb them, and you hold them in that position. I don't know about you, but how many times have any one of us slept, you're trying to basically put your child to sleep, and they sleep on your shoulder and you're sitting there you don't want to move, because you don't want to wake them up.
The least that child should do is treat his parents with that kind of courtesy. Right? This man was very grateful to his parents. He didn't want to disturb them. And he had each one of them actually had what I would call an ethical dilemma.
They had they had an internal conflict. They were conflicted. And at that particular moment, they did what they thought was most pleasing to Allah subhanho wa taala. And that's what Allah subhanaw taala rewarded them for. Now, none of them knew that a time will come where this particular deed, and that particular choice will come to the rescue will be the reason why Allah subhanaw taala will save them from this mess.
You know, a scholar said, if the Ummah if the community want to get rid of this block, or this rock, or this thing that is pressuring us from every direction, we need to make sure that we have these qualities present and people like that amongst us. If we wonder why and sometimes our God is not accepted, maybe we don't have enough virtues
of this kind that will qualify our job to be to be answered.
So the man what he did, he went above and beyond the call of duty. Same thing with the second person went above and beyond. He could have said okay, I'm not going to do this. Here's the money. It's a debt, pay it back. But no, he stayed away from the Haram though he had access to it. Right? He refrained from it when he was reminded, and he left the money for her to keep and he didn't even say you know that's How about how about we make this Yamaha, Yanni? In other words, he did not someone might say wait a minute, but he did exploit her initially. Right. But when he was reminded of Allah subhanho wa Taala when she showed him that she is not pleased or she's not happy with this. The man
Right and had a moment of awakening.
It is also worthy to be mentioned Subhanallah you know we live in
In a city that is considered to be number five, when it comes to poverty rate, right? What caused this woman to do this?
This is something that needs to be highlighted. So actually some scholars do highlight this they say, in this particular scenario, the second case of the case of the man that basically was was tempted to commit Zina with his with his cousin, they said,
societies in which there is no Rama, people don't take care of each other, or people don't assume their responsibility, because this woman should have been what should have been provided for either by her, her family and her family is not run by her male relatives. Right, she has a help. Sherry gives her
the failure funny for anyone to do that will actually make this person susceptible to being exploited. Right.
Last but not least, as I said, there are a lot of a lot of lessons, the most fascinating
of the three stories is what the third man did.
The third man had money that he could have just saved. Right unclaimed wage. Right? He had unclaimed unclaimed wages, he could have just saved it.
But he took upon himself the responsibility of what taking this money and actually growing it.
And this, there is a lesson for all of us. First of all, we're supposed to pay people for whatever work they do for us ASAP.
Right? There is a saying that says
you should pay a person that you contracted before their sweat dries.
You don't know what this person's situation is this, this person may be waiting for this.
They're living, you know, paycheck paycheck to paycheck.
That so so that's number one, number two, money that that, that we're keeping for someone, we should give them the best advice or manage that wealth in a way where that wealth is not, is not destroyed or lost? If it was, indeed rice, what would have happened to rice?
It would have gone bad.
So it's not something that he can store? What did he do? He sold the rice took money, he bought something else. He and he kept investing the money left and right until he was able to grow it.
And my advice for any person who who is especially if you are taking care of the wealth of orphans, right? There is actually a prophetic statement that says you should invest the wealth of orphans so that the car does not does not finish it. Because if you have money in you, all you're doing is just saving it, you're keeping it right, it's 10,000.
Right? Every year, you have to pay two and a half percent is
what's going to happen. It's going to diminish in addition to the fact that nowadays, right? With
with inflation is going to kill it destroy it.
And sometimes some people they're like, Oh, my show I have $20,000 How long have you had it for 10 years, you know, it's not worth the same anymore. You can't do that. Right? You're supposed to continue to invest it. And you should make sure that you're investing it right in a very responsible way.
So this man invested this money, and then he did not become attached to it.
Though it was it was to begin with it was his right? He's the one that managed it it was his money. He could have said, Oh can you came back here is rice, and here's extra rice
for what you have done.
Now, especially that when you when you manage wealth, and you see it growing, what happens?
You become emotionally attached to it, this is your accomplishment. This is your hard work. No, he did not become attached to it.
Which also tells us that when he initially refused to give more than what they had agreed upon, was out of principle.
What out of principle, right? So so this is a story that the promise of asylum related to us is a real story. It's not a metaphor. These were three actual men the process and did not specify the area or the you know, the time frame in which the story took place. Allah subhanaw taala revealed was the province of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught it to the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and now we have access to this story. My advice to you is actually to go back and whether you read it or whether you can just reflect upon what you remember the story, right? And they shall maybe we'll I'll ask you next time I see you out.
Like inshallah each person and even those who are with us online to share with me because as I told, you know, I can go over a list of 20 to 34
things that we benefit reflections, right? I would love Inshallah, to Allah to hear from you just process it, think about it, analyze it, you're more than welcome to send me a message if you want to or when you see me next time, right Subhanallah tonight, someone shared with me a reflection on this particular Hadith that I can tell you made my day, I thought it was a gem.
Right? I thought it was actually a gym
and asked Allah subhanaw taala again, the benefit, the goal, and the objective of these stories is for us, to be touched by them and to be transformed. And for us to really improve our
improve ourselves. Right, and try to enhance the good virtues and qualities that we have and try to control and reduce or, you know,
decrease some of these vices and some of these weaknesses and, and challenges that we have. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us of those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to. Also, it is permissible by the way to this hadith actually shows that you can
you can pray to Allah subhanaw taala by the virtue of what you consider to be the most sincere need of yours. So if you know that you were sincere. You can ask Allah by the virtue of your own good deed that Allah Subhana Allah grants you something that you desperately need. May Allah Subhana Allah grant us
may Allah Subhana Allah grant us sincerity and make us of those who listen and follow the best of where they listen to. May Allah subhanho wa Taala purify our hearts help us overcome our weaknesses and our shortcomings is Aquila Hara for joining us tonight. Salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
