All right, Mr. Milan hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Salam Allahu alayhi wa sallam

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

tonight's tonight's story is a very

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

interesting story in Santa Monica.

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

It's a lot of theories, like Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam welcome tonight's story from the Sunnah, or from the tradition that we refer to as the Sunnah was not necessarily

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

mentioned, or related to us by the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, but it's found in the collection of Imam Malik

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

is a report that goes back to

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

a famous scholar from who was a contemporary of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:01:04--> 00:01:11

wa sallam. He was a great scholar, students of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And

00:01:13--> 00:01:26

it's a story from the narrations or the narratives that we called Satya. So Mr. Malik relates this story that I asked him and Mohamed who was also a heavyweight scholar.

00:01:28--> 00:01:28


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


00:01:35--> 00:01:40

and of course, even Muhammad and the whole color Halakhah, Team Raja to lead

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

for attorney Mohamed ImmunoCAP and karate,

00:01:45--> 00:01:49

your xenophobia Halekulani animate to fit

00:01:50--> 00:01:59

so I'll pass on Mohammed who was a good heavyweight great scholar of his time, he said that one of my wives died.

00:02:02--> 00:02:08

Mohammed bin Cora, the who was another heavyweight scholar of his time and he was also

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

a descendant of

00:02:13--> 00:02:17

rabbis. He had the rabbinical, you know, knowledge.

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

Muhammad have been a cop.

00:02:21--> 00:02:28

He said came to me to console me regarding the loss of my wife, so he gave to give him condolences and stay with him.

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

And he told him the following story.

00:02:34--> 00:02:38

Right, Mohammed macabre Cora, they told him the following story. He said,

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

Kenneth he, Benny Surah Isla Rajon fapy hoon?

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

Can if you've any sort of ILA, or you don't feel to

00:02:48--> 00:02:49

be doing it.

00:02:52--> 00:03:01

He said that there was a man from the people of Beirut Surah Al from the Israelites, who was

00:03:04--> 00:03:15

a well versed scholar *y he was a jurist. He was a scholar item. I bet he was diligent, devoted.

00:03:16--> 00:03:28

in worship, he was known for his worship as well, which to hit, right. This is someone of very highest status. Look at all of these descriptions that he gave him which date, right.

00:03:29--> 00:03:34

Which to hit is someone that has reached a level of, of his jihad, and he's someone who's,

00:03:35--> 00:03:40

who's capable of giving religious verdicts. Right.

00:03:41--> 00:03:58

So what can Lahoma ah, and this man was married. And right there, we get, you know, let's just go over the benefits of the Hadith as we go on. What kind of the hombre this man this scholar was, was married. So this idea of

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

priesthood or celibacy was something that was invented after the time off. He said, he said before that religious figures were expected to be married. There was nothing wrong with being married, right, as a matter of fact, is scholarly, to be married.

00:04:19--> 00:04:30

Right, and prophetic tradition. So it shows that that the person has, so there is no virtue of not being married. Right? It's actually quite the opposite.

00:04:32--> 00:04:37

Here he says that this man was married this great scholar of Surah Eid was married and he had a woman that he

00:04:39--> 00:04:42

has admired immensely and he loved her.

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

He was in love with her

00:04:45--> 00:04:49

right? What can I be have more Jevon? Well a hammer hit that

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

again, which shows that there is nothing wrong as a matter of fact, I intentionally recited in salon today, ALLAH SubhanA wa addes words in the Quran

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

in which Allah Subhana Allah says that he's the one that he created of his size is that created for you, mates of yourselves, right? To find peace or tranquility or to find second with them? Would you elevate the commodity, Rama and Allah Subhana Allah placed and established between you passion, love and passion, what am and compassion.

00:05:26--> 00:06:09

Right. So, there has to be emotions, emotions, you know, the norm is that there are emotions, there is emotional attachments between the husband and his wife, right? If it's not there, then there's something wrong. That's not normal. That's not natural, the natural order of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and the universe is that people have when they spend time with each other or when they are involved in a marital relationship is that they develop and cultivate and grow in love for one another. If it's not there, that means something is wrong. Now whether people express it or not, or how people express it, that's another another subject maybe for another day. But this man

00:06:11--> 00:06:20

and it was very known this caller was was known to be in love with his wife, he had a lot of admiration for her. And then Subhanallah Femina.

00:06:22--> 00:06:31

So she died. Allah subhanaw taala tested them by her death. So she died. Oh my God, I know you have what you didn't shed Eden. Yanni.

00:06:33--> 00:06:37

Prisoner shut either. One up, yeah, they had SFR.

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

So he said that when she died, he grieved over her immensely

00:06:48--> 00:06:49

and lamented her.

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

He really missed her

00:06:53--> 00:07:04

until to the point where he withdrew into a house and locked himself in that inside that house. Had to have he bathe in well.

00:07:05--> 00:07:33

He was a nurse, fella Mia couldn't yet hola hola. He had he locked himself into a house. He that's how aggrieved he was. That's how, how, how much he was grieving. Right? That's how sad and how, you know, it got to the point where he actually withdrew, and he locked himself into a house and will not allow anyone to come and see him. So he completely isolated himself from people.

00:07:34--> 00:07:57

Now, grief and sadness for the loss of a loved one is something natural. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he lost the year his uncle died and then his wife Khadija all the law and had died, who was the most beloved person to him. The process had limbs. That particular year of the Prophet's life is known as Hamlet, I'm in prison, the year of sadness from cinema was sad.

00:07:58--> 00:08:01

The sadness should not reach a level where the person

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

is not able to function anymore. So

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

So when this happened, the story doesn't end here. It says that we're in the middle and send me I'd be there was a woman from the community that heard of him. She heard of as a story, set me up to be here at home. So she came to where he was staying.

00:08:27--> 00:09:01

For college in de la, he had your twin had your 10 ACEF te fi her, they say your Xeni fi her Illamasqua. So she came and she spoke to the people, obviously, there were people around him, maybe some of his students and she came in, she said, I need to meet or to see the scholar, I have a question I have, I have a need, I need to consult him about something, or I need to converse with him about something. And I will not go away until I'm able to talk to him directly

00:09:05--> 00:09:16

for the heaviness, so everyone left, and she wouldn't leave well as he met Barbra who everyone left except her she stayed. She said I'm not going anywhere until I'm able to see him.

00:09:17--> 00:09:30

We'll call it Maleme inhibit this particular verdict or fatwah or this issue that I need to talk to him about. I'm not going to be able to talk to anyone about it except him. So she insisted that she meets him

00:09:32--> 00:09:41

for Karla Homolka. And so someone delivered the message to him in the Hoonah Ma, Ra that antiseptic

00:09:44--> 00:09:58

antiseptic in her Hanamura Hara that antiseptic. There is a woman here at staying that needs to ask you that has a question for you and she needs to ask you for a verdict. She wants your opinion on something

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

and she

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

He said,

00:10:01--> 00:10:18

in order to enamel Chava NASWA he lied to me they told him about the story that this woman is insisting she said that I that she has to speak directly to you. She's not speaking to anyone else, and everyone left except her. And she said that she's not leaving until she speaks to you.

00:10:19--> 00:10:37

When he found out about that, he said for Carla then Allah, he said okay, let her let her come in. So for DACA to La so she interest and she said to him for college in Niger to a stiff Tea Coffee Amarin I came to consult you about a matter

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

Paloma who so he said to her what is it?

00:10:42--> 00:10:46

She said in this era T li

00:10:47--> 00:10:48


00:10:50--> 00:10:52

she said I borrowed from

00:10:53--> 00:10:55

a neighbor of mine a piece of jewelry

00:10:57--> 00:10:58

hardly any any

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

more fraud holy. No.

00:11:04--> 00:11:26

The country Albus who who were already Euro who's a man and so she said I wore it for for some time she I borrowed a piece of jewelry from from a neighbor of mine and I used to wear it for a while. And I kept it for a while. Right for a long time. So in the home out of Salou la Yaffe

00:11:27--> 00:11:32

then they just sent me a message saying that they want it back.

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

fo a de la him

00:11:38--> 00:11:43

should I give it back to them? I have I've had it for a long time. And I became attached to it.

00:11:44--> 00:11:49

For Colin and wallah he said yes, you must you must do so by Allah of course.

00:11:51--> 00:12:02

You know what kind of question is this? So now I'm wala Yanni, Kona. Hokkaido, Allah. Yeah. And he, he's, he's, he's amazed. Well, how could you even ask this question? Of course, you have to give it to them.

00:12:03--> 00:12:08

For Carlat, in the end is a man and she said however, I've had it for a while.

00:12:10--> 00:12:13

I've had it for a while, you know, I became attached to it.

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

The car that he could radicchio who like him

00:12:19--> 00:12:24

hanging out, okay, he's a man. He said, that makes it even more

00:12:25--> 00:12:40

you no more appropriate and creates urgency that you should give it back to them immediately when they ask for it. Since they have already let you have it for a long time. You've had it for a long time. That means that you're supposed to give it to them

00:12:41--> 00:12:50

and not take advantage of their kindness and their generosity. Right. The longer someone leaves something with you the

00:12:51--> 00:12:55

you know, that doesn't mean that you should get attached to it and take it for granted and refuse to give it back

00:12:58--> 00:13:00

for call it and that's when she said to him

00:13:02--> 00:13:08

a year hamdulillah said May Allah Subhana Allah have mercy on you. She's saying this to the scholar

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

of attacks of

00:13:12--> 00:13:16

Allah who Thelma Heather who mink were who are happy to be here mink

00:13:18--> 00:13:19

for absolute Americana if he

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

whenever I hula hoop it totally her

00:13:24--> 00:13:28

to Africa upside Americana fee, whatever Allah whatever I would love to call her

00:13:30--> 00:13:36

for call it a year hammock Allah efforts so for Allah, Allah who had a woman go who were behaving,

00:13:38--> 00:13:45

your call Ravi for Apsara micanopy. Raja and if so, whenever Allahu Allah, so she said to him.

00:13:47--> 00:14:01

Then she said, may Allah have mercy on you. Do you grieve over what Allah has lent you? Allah subhanaw taala has given you, your wife, whatever we have is all from Allah. All of the blessings that we have are from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:14:02--> 00:14:08

Allah has given it to you for a while, then he has taken it from you.

00:14:09--> 00:14:11

When he has greater right

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

to it than you

00:14:16--> 00:14:48

who has greater right to whatever we have Allah, to Allah we belong and to Allah we return and everything that we have belongs to Allah subhanaw taala So when Allah takes something, we cannot complain about Allah subhanaw taala taking something away from from us because to begin with, it doesn't belong to us, it belongs to me. Because whatever Allah takes, and us We all belong to Allah, when Allah takes something away, we we shouldn't object to him, taking back or seizing what belongs to him Subhanallah with that, so she said, why would you object to that?

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

So she said, the narrator said, Then the man realized, came to a realization that this was a lesson for him. A message from this woman from this

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

Very clever woman, right? This very wise woman, and Allah subhanho wa Taala helped him by her words. So he found comfort. And he found a reminder in these words of hers. So this is where the story ends. Now let's just reflect on a couple of things. First of all,

00:15:21--> 00:15:24

this shows that even a scholar,

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

right, even a scholar

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


00:15:30--> 00:15:41

really, you know, miss the point or make a mistake, or not be able to handle a test from Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:15:42--> 00:15:49

It also shows the importance and the role of Naziha.

00:15:50--> 00:16:31

Right? Well, the Prophet SAW Selim nasiha, which is giving good advice to one another, right? This is a common woman, but perhaps maybe a very smart, wise woman who took it upon herself, no one else was able to do much for him, the man was Drew, he couldn't function anymore in his capacity as a scholar. Right? He was drew from everyone. Now we know that you you know there is a morning in a slum, you know, Allah was morning, right? The prophets, I said, would not allow anyone to mourn anyone more than three days except for a woman who is supposed to mourn her husband for four months and 10 days beyond that, a person should be able to

00:16:33--> 00:16:38

for lack of a better term move on any move on doesn't mean that you should forget

00:16:39--> 00:16:53

right you should not care or you should just get over your emotions, move on means that you should you should be able to function even during the mourning period, you should not stop from from functioning as a servant of Allah subhanaw taala

00:16:54--> 00:17:07

right. So, there is a mourning period that is legitimate and that is okay. But beyond that, for someone to punish themselves or to withdraw, and not be able to function or live their life is not correct.

00:17:08--> 00:17:23

Right. So this woman took it upon herself to go and give advice to this to this scholar, because the Prophet said, do not see her right that we have to be we have to give sincere advice to one another, ordinary men to whom the law

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

was the last Tuesday

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

when he a meeting was Samina Ramadan.

00:17:29--> 00:17:41

So the prophets have sort of said to Allah and His Messenger when he Kitab e f one and two to the book of Allah subhanaw taala and to the leaders of the Muslims or to the scholars of the Muslims and to also the lay the common people.

00:17:42--> 00:17:57

Everyone is not see, it is a collective responsibility. Everyone is supposed to be sincere and give sincere advice to one another. So never say to yourself, well, this is someone above me. So I can't give give this person advice. You never know who may benefit from your advice.

00:17:59--> 00:18:05

Another benefit that we find here is that was this woman lying when she gave this story to the scholar

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

handheld camera, but

00:18:09--> 00:18:16

she she gave him a fictitious story, right? Like, does she really borrow? You know, jewelry?

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

Okay, chances are that she didn't really borrow jewelry. So what is what she did a lie is considered a lie. The prophesies hit him in the head, he says, they sell cadaver, let the yen me, lady, use lubaina nurse

00:18:35--> 00:18:59

if someone is is trying to fix a situation, right, or rectify a situation, and they relate something good, not intending to lie, then that is not a lie. Right? In addition to the fact that what she did was she actually shared with him an analogy, if you will. It's not that right.

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

There is a very similar analogy used by one of the female companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam almost late when her son passed away.

00:19:10--> 00:19:12

And her husband

00:19:14--> 00:19:36

will tell her she came home, and he inquired about the status, you know, the state of his son. And she told him, if our neighbors gave us something, lend us something, and then they take it back after a while. Do we have any right to object to that? He said no. So she said Allah subhanaw taala has given us a sun. And then Allah subhanaw taala took him away.

00:19:37--> 00:19:59

Right? So she used that kind of basically, analogy, or the Allahu Allah and the Prophet has said and did not say that was a lie. Right. So and likewise are some of the stories that we tell inspirational, you know, stories fictitious stories, right? When you when we tell our children for instance, there was a little dog or there was like, you know, there was a

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

Uh, what, uh, what told us and these stories are not real, we all know that they're not real, right? Because tortoises don't speak. They don't talk, you know, and they know that it's not real. So we're not telling them that this is. So these are,

00:20:15--> 00:20:18

you know, this this is not considered to be

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

a lie.

00:20:23--> 00:20:27

Last but not least, I mean there are, there are many lessons that can be,

00:20:28--> 00:20:34

can be reflected upon here is that we should not

00:20:35--> 00:20:36

be attached

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

to anything

00:20:40--> 00:20:43

to the point where we may not be able to function without it.

00:20:46--> 00:21:08

Allah Subhana Allah created us, for himself for his worship. We're here for Allah Subhana Allah He created us to Allah we belong to Allah, we return, we're here suppose we're supposed to be worshiping and pleasing Allah subhanho wa taala. In every gift that we have every blessing that we have from Allah Subhana Allah, right, it's a blessing, but it's also a test.

00:21:10--> 00:21:18

Right? And we should really be very careful when it comes to becoming attached to anything, even if it's a human being.

00:21:19--> 00:21:34

There was no one that the Sahaba or a believer would become attached to more than who Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and there is no loss, that a believer with suffer that is greater than the loss of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:21:35--> 00:22:15

the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they were devastated when the Prophet SAW Selim passed away. And, and, and anyone even those who, you know, those of us who came after the time of the Prophet sallallahu, Isa, if you really think about, you know, our loss, we didn't even get to see him. Salallahu Alaihe Salam, right. This is, you know, from day one, the we have a huge loss, which is the fact that we didn't see the prophesies that live in the proximate and pass away. So we're all afflicted by this, right? So imagine those who have lived with him and have known him and they got to use to life with the promise of being around Imagine, imagine what it was like for

00:22:15--> 00:22:55

them not to have the prophets of Allah is and all of a sudden, right he prayed he was there for failure. He wasn't there for the horse that day. And he was never going to be there with them after that must have been a it was a devastating day. Unless of an Malik says the day the process hindlimb came to Medina everything lit up every corner of Medina lit up the day the Prophet Sal and passed away everything. You know, it was the darkest and the saddest and the most, you know, the most unpleasant day that's how about one lie they had to deal with, in spite of all of that, right? Abu Bakr came and took the stand.

00:22:56--> 00:23:05

He stood where the proximate near where the promises that he would stand. And he had he reminded the community that we worship Allah Subhana Allah,

00:23:06--> 00:23:14

you know, whoever worships Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he passed away, but we worship Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, how you labeled, we have to move on.

00:23:15--> 00:23:16

And they moved on.

00:23:18--> 00:23:55

When I say it moved on, that doesn't mean that they forgot the promises. No, no, no, that's not what we mean by moving on, meaning you continue to function. And you celebrate the legacy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by holding on to his teachings and all of that same thing, you said that you could cherish the memories of the loved one, right and be grateful for the time that Allah Subhana Allah has given you with that person, and focus on that instead of complaining, or you know about the loss or grieving to the point where it actually interferes with your function as a servant of Allah subhanaw taala and you can no longer worship Allah Subhana Allah or you withdraw from your

00:23:55--> 00:24:41

responsibilities. So this scholar Allah subhanaw taala benefited him from this reminder that came to him from this sincere, wise lady, and he was able to, by the Grace of Allah Subhana Allah to come back, and it gave him a lot of strength. So this is something that we need to remind ourselves, right? Don't be too attached to something to the point where, where you may not be able to function without it. Remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Gibreel told him that, you know, live as long as you wish. live as long as you want to fit in the commit mishmash, in the commit. What we've been shooting for in the camelphat ACO, and love whomever you want, you're going

00:24:41--> 00:24:56

to separate from them one day, either they will leave you or you will leave them right. And we have to come to terms with this. May Allah Subhana Allah make you an eye of those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to the huddle huddle called was Salford Allah who you welcome was salam ala
