Tonight's story is recorded in Sahih Muslim and in other collections as well like an edible fraud by Imam Bukhari Rahim Allah.
the story is part of a lengthy Hadith. So I'm going to just focus on the story itself. Right.
And the story is
of a man known as Judah H.
Abu Huraira, the Allahu Anhu reported this hadith
and Abu Hurayrah, he says
he actually described
as he mentioned, this hadith he described
a moment a very critical moment within this particular story. So what is the story of you right?
Euro it was
a worshipper. Someone, he was a, you know, a devout,
worshipper of Allah subhanho wa taala. From when we saw it from previous nations. Allah subhanaw taala revealed his story to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam.
in the story of Judah, he is told that his mother actually called him
Abu Hurayrah Radi Allahu Anhu
to whom Allah has messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam demonstrated how the gesture Yura is mother made when she called him
said he basically placed as he demonstrated to his own students, Abu Hurayrah by the homemade philosopher Lena Abu raffia, Sefa Ebihara era, they refer to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on Mahina dato
que Fajr Alex Kapha folk AHA GB ha.
Tamara Terrazza in a tangible
Alright, so by placing his hand on his forehead, demonstrating the gesture Julie's mother made,
when she lifted her head to call him to get his attention.
Yeah, this is very detailed description. The profit center was not there. This is something that happened.
Allah knows, maybe hundreds of years before the time of the Prophet SAW Allah they said it could have happened 100 to three 400 years Allah Allah.
Allah revealed to the Prophet so I said, Let the Prophet demonstrate it to the Companions as if he was there as if he saw what happened in Abu Huraira demonstrated to his students, right, and his student, Abu Rafer, who may says, describe to us how Abu Hurayrah describe the promise or salams description of what euro is mother made. Now, why am I mentioning this?
Why did the promises have to do that?
Show you that this is a real story, something that actually happened took place. This is not a metaphor. This is not some fictitious story or some analogy. This is a real story, something that happened.
And a man a very respected,
pious man by the name of Jurij did live and he experienced something extraordinary
that Allah azza wa jal revealed to His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that was
that story, that experience of God in it. There are a lot of lessons for all of us, all of us. Because the one thing that we all have in common is that we all have parents.
Right? And we all have mothers
and our mothers
deserve our utmost respect
There is no one after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, no human being who is a sacred as your own mother,
yet our mothers
get most abused and neglected
And they're always taken for granted.
So, this hadith comes from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, this particular story, as a very serious warning to all of us. And this is what you know, one of the reasons I'm very nervous and I just been putting off talking about the story.
So God was a righteous man who worshiped Allah subhanho wa Taala in seclusion. he isolated himself, scholar said that isolating one's self and was on hold for too high
in our tradition in our religion, right is not
is not as is not appreciated. It's actually the lesser, its lesser you know, it's not as virtuous as it used to be for that.
It's better that a person engages with the public, engages people in his patient and maintains right good relationship with people and exercises patients let you harlot will NAS Wellsville Raja home, Cairo Manila de la Jara upon us what is
this is a principal set by the prophets of Allah alayhi salam, that interacting with people and having a social life, given that the person is not compromising any of the teachings and principles that are taught to us by our religion by the process Solomon is and you know what Allah subhanaw taala taught us in the Quran, given that you're not compromising that, as long as you're uphold that engaging with with people and having a social life, a healthy social life with the public or with people is better,
even if that comes at some cost. Right. So Jura was someone that actually kept himself away from people who used to worship Allah subhanho wa taala. In
in his own monastery, right. He secluded himself, his mother called him one day.
While he was observed by in prayer, he was he was in Salah, he was praying.
He was praying a voluntary prayer.
So when she called him, he said,
in the omocha,
for calumny, she came to Him while He was praying, and his monastery and she said, I am your mother, speak to me, respond to me.
You're calling me so select facade of who you saw Lee. It happened that when she came to him to talk to him, while he was inside his, you know, whatever room or space that he was in,
when she called him. He was praying for hada Allahumma Omi was on it. He said to himself. This is something that he's now this is a self talk he's having, Oh Allah, my mother or my prayer.
Dr. Oz salata who you're calling Dr. Salado, the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam said, he chose his prayer. So he chose to continue his prayer focus on his prayer and He did not respond to his mother.
So his mother went away.
Then, the province has said him said Faraja at some added, then she came back again. Second time to college. Yeah, your age and omocha limini I am your mother, talk to me. Respond to me.
Come out, talk to me. Allah Allah whom me wa salatu. Now he's having internal conflict again.
Oh Allah, my salah my prayer that I have intended to that I began and I have intended to finish in which he was completely consumed by his salah. And now his mother came in interrupted that
right? And he said, Oh Allah, which what should I do? Should I respond to my mother? Or should I stay focused on my prayer? Tara salata who the prophesy seven said again, he chose his Salah.
for call it Allahumma in the heather Jurij Wahoo I believe we're in the can LEM to HuFa Abba, you can leave any Allahumma fella to MIT who had to read the whole movie set.
So she said, Oh my Lord, this is God, my son, I'm his mother. And he chose to it I spoke to him and I called him and he chose to ignore me.
Let him not die.
Until soon as he basically until a less he
has seen the prostitutes
and She invoked
a curse upon him.
Some of the scholars said, Now I don't want to really go into the trying to analyze and justify what she said and why she said it and all of that.
Right, some of the scholars said, perhaps like you'd have a no and others, perhaps he was afraid to speak to it. First of all, by the way, he was praying enough in prayer, a voluntary prayer, it wasn't even felt. And the scholar said, concluded from this hadith, right, that
if a person is praying, a voluntary prayer and naskila
and his or her parents call them, call that individual, the individual ought to interrupt their Salah and respond to their parents.
That's number one. Number Number two, they said, if it's a form of prayer, if it's obligatory mandatory prayer, then the person should expedite and speed up their prayer finish quickly and respond to their parents.
In the case of jury, he neither responded to his mother, nor did he go afterwards and speak to her and tell you know, explain to her why was fraying that's why they didn't come he chose not to come out.
So she made that statement or she made that dua.
when I would I hear you've 10 and a foot in, had she prayed or cursed him and made dua that Allah subhanaw taala causes him to deviate and fall into fitna
that would have happened
right? But she didn't.
She just said to you, who would you help mommy said
Allah promises Salam now Fast Forwards he says what can arrive a lot Nene yet we in our daily he? Allah for holidays in Morocco, middle Korea, tilaka. You ha Rafi to hammer let's
subpoena the Houma had that talisman saw him you had the day. Now.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, fast forward, right? He said
that it was so that happened that there was a woman
in the village, in another Hadith says that this woman was a prostitute
who actually was challenged by a group of people from that city.
They challenged her
to see if she can actually tempt your age, and bring him out of his monastery out of his temple.
Yes, you may be beautiful and attractive and everything and you can get any man you want. But there's one man that you can't get in that as you're right. If you can get him, we're gonna give you such an such she said, Oh, I can get you right, I can get anyone who said no.
What made these people think of Eurasian made her take this challenge. So and it happened also
that there was a shepherd
living nearby that by the temple of God, that used to actually come close to, to the he used to basically be around the monastery or around the temple. So when this woman couldn't get your age, she could not get your attention. And he wouldn't even respond to her or come out. She actually went to the shepherd, the prophesies had them set. And she had a relationship with a shepherd.
And she actually became pregnant with a child and then she gave birth to the child and then she went, right.
She went and she said that this is she claimed that this child belongs to God
Allah who will be for all see him on my say he him Fernando facade of who He was holy for them. You can blame him. Allah for a day or a half. And I'm
the process of selling said, when the people of the village basically found out or believed the claim of this of this prostitute. They went and they called out to God come down. And it happened that he was praying. So he didn't respond to them.
And they brought with them their axes and their tools and they started basically destroying and demolishing the entire monastery.
They were going to completely destroyed on top of it while he was in it. So he eventually came down and inquired as to what is the reason for what they're doing.
For Odwalla who Sal had he
They said ask this woman. She's making a claim. According to this particular narration, he knew. He remembered with what his mother said. He know what this was. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Fetta best some. So he smiled.
She brought a child in, he knew exactly. He was able to basically and he figured out what was happening.
So he smiled. Right, he finally came out, engaged with the people. And he looked right into the face of this prostitute. And then he saw this baby that she was carrying the processor and said, Mr. Hadassah sabe. So he wiped over the head of the baby of this child, for Karla and then he said, many evoke, this is now an infant, he said, Who's your father?
On a heavy ride.
This infant spoke to Proxima Salim said and he was one of the few infants in history that spoke he said my father is the shepherd
fella my Samuel or daddy Camino
alo lemony Mahad M Nam In Daly can be the head will feel when they saw this miracle take place before their eyes and miracles, you know, or something that happened at the hands or request of a Prophet also that there are miracles or
you know, extraordinary events that could happen there from Allah subhanaw taala for what we would call a while yet right? The special service of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and it's called Quran. Allah subhanaw taala honors them, when they, when they when they saw that they said we're sorry, they apologize them and they said we we will rebuild your monastery for you and we will build it off from gold and silver. Allah He said, No, that's not what I'm what can you do to Robin command can from Allah. He said, just rebuilt it the way it was modern, you know, whatever. Simple, something simple, and then they rebuilt it and he was able to basically climb it again and go upstairs and
continue to worship Allah subhanho wa taala. What do we get from this, and this is, what do we get from this?
What we get from this is that mothers are sacred.
And they come first before any other human beings other than the messengers and prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when a man came to him, he said, and said, Who deserves the best of my treatment? Who deserves my devotion the most after Allah and His messenger who deserves the best of Maitreya, who deserves my utmost respect? Who deserves that, that I honor the most and obey the most? The Prophet said amok? And then he said amok and he said almost three times.
Yet again, as I said mothers are taking for granted.
Another lesson we learned from this is that the DUA
the prayer and supplication Be it a curse, or
any drop that the parents make for the parent for their child is accepted by Allah subhanho wa taala. Right
of Way Allah and mostly meshes brings a hadith on the authority of Malika bananas and it's emblematic of the Allahu Anhu the companion of the Prophet Allah, Allah is a lamp. And he said, Allah Sula, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Kulu che in Benin who obeying Allah Azza wa Jalla hijab everything there is between Allah and everything in the universe, a barrier
in their shahada to Allah you know her in the light except the saying of la ilaha illa Allah goes straight to Allah subhanaw taala
Allah receives it straight, when do we say it?
What do ya ideally when
the angels don't carry it, it goes straight to Allah azza wa jal, and the dua or the supplication the, the prayer of a parent for his child or for her child that
In another Hadith collected by Ibn merger and Abu Dawood and October Ronnie
with the Elysee and is considered to be sound by Albury Rahim Allah, Abu Huraira said that the messenger of allah sallallahu either you send them and said Salah through the house you said there are three prayers that are accepted.
Immediately automatically they are accepted.
Right Lasha Kofi hint there is no doubt that they are accepted by Allah subhana wa Tada
that we're talking about the loom the prayer of the oppressed.
What that what would Musa fear and the prayer of
while traveling, right? Was that what when Why did he well at the end the prayer of a parent for their child
a pray the prayer of four of the parents for their children, these the DUA is accepted. And that is exactly why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
Don't curse yourselves
and do not curse your children.
What I said to Allah and why they come and do not curse your wealth.
That way, if you call me Allah, He said, I didn't use her. I thought I'm facing Ebola.
Perhaps you may say something, you may curse yourself or make dua invoke God's curse upon yourself or your your property or your child, don't say anything negative, don't don't make dua against your children, the prophets I said, I've said, because if it happens, that that is a moment in which Allah azza wa jal answers the DUA, it will be accepted. And you will regret it. I don't know of any parents that I have seen cases of parents that actually cursed or had any wish their children, ill, you know,
they were really hurt. They felt hurt, disrespected, oppressed, abused by their children. And in a moment of like weakness or in while they were consumed by their pain and their agony, and their, you know, they may drop, they asked Allah subhanaw taala, to punish this child.
And I've seen, I've seen cases that the only explanation that I have for it is that it must be the curse of the parent.
And I don't know of any parent that really enjoys seeing their child suffer, especially if it's because of their drug upon their child.
But you can imagine what what it takes to make a parent actually, Now someone might say, Well, I am dealing you don't know You don't know my parents, your parent is your parent, you can't choose your parent, you can't change your parent, right? You can't replace your parent,
ALLAH SubhanA, Allah chooses a parent for you. And you must be contented with that with what Allah subhanaw taala has, has chosen for you. Right? And manage the relationship. Someone might say to you, you're, you're really you this talk of yours is really triggering me. It's really, you know, stirring some emotions and all of that. And, and I understand this, and I do urge people who have any issues, any tension between them and their parents, or they had some history between them and their parents to go and get counseling for sure. Nonetheless, I cannot think of any just my dear brothers and sisters, and I'm speaking also to our audience as well.
The Allah azza wa jal in the Quran says that if your parents, if your father and mother, both of them are disbelievers, they're unbeliever they don't believe in God. And not only do they not believe in God, but they actively abuse you pressure you wage war on you. Right?
put so much pressure in Tjahaja they actually go out of their way and wage a campaign against you. Demanding from you what
to excel in your studies or to excel in your life or to be a successful person or to take care of your health. No, no, no. If they actually waged a campaign against you,
to cause you to rebel against Allah.
To turn against Allah, when Tjahaja Allah and pushed Rickerby to commit the greatest form of injustice and the worst, the worst crime a person can commit is to, to commit check. Allah says if they do that if they wage war against you, or wage a campaign against you, trying to force you to associate partners with me with Allah azza wa jal, this is Allah speaking in the Quran, Allah azza wa jal says simply fella To whom do not obey them yet well, so I hope whom I think dunya model for you still have to be kind to them and treat them with with the respect that they deserve as your parents.
a parent who's who's a Kaffir
right denies Allah subhanaw taala its existence or, you know, denies Allah azza wa jal, his right Allah, Allah Himself is saying telling us in the Quran, that you can't abuse.
You still have to be you have to tolerate it, you have to manage it, you have to regulate mount moderate, recalibrate, whatever terminology you want to use. You work on it's your test in life, you deal with it, but you cannot use that, you know, to justify abusing or pushing back or fighting or neglecting or disrespecting
If you're a parent,
and there are many other lessons last, you know, point that I want to actually
is that, in spite of the fact that your age, what he did was was wrong. What preoccupied him was what he thought was more important than responding to his mother.
He made a poor choice.
And that is why it's essential to seek knowledge
and to know our priorities, and to learn,
right? God, he was so committed to the voluntary acts of worship. And he was so committed to it, he was so focused on it, but he didn't realize that he had other obligations, that we're more important than worshipping Allah subhana, doing extra worship, doing extra worship, right. And this is where knowledge comes in handy. Right? And this is what the prophet This is one of the lessons the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
taught us or was trying to teach us in this particular Hadith, in this particular story. Right. So seeking knowledge and knowing what our priorities are, we have follow up, we have obligations and duties. And then we have recommendations, things that we are urging encouraged to do extra things that we can do, to refine ourselves and to discipline ourselves and to, you know,
right? So we need to know what priorities for right come first, whatever Allah subhanaw taala, obligate us to do comes first before any other voluntary thing, or work or it should not be that you know, the voluntary, personal, right? choices that we make to better ourselves should not be at the expense of what Allah azza wa jal has obligated us to do.
Right? If there is a conflict,
and ALLAH SubhanA, Allah knows best, you know, just just last comment that I want to share with everyone. If your mother is around you, if you have access to your mother, right? Make sure that you
seek her pleasure. And her do it in her blessings.
If what it takes is to be at her feet, be it if what it takes is to be a servant.
A servant of her, be it if what it takes is to stand before her. Right, like
a slave would stand in front of
There is nothing some of the scholars said, I don't what are the scholars said that I don't know of any act
of virtue, that is more rewarding.
That is superior to
serving, and obeying. And being at the disposal of our mothers, there is nothing nothing.
take advantage of your mother's presence in your life. Seek, you know, and if you want to know what it's like, speak to those who have lost their mothers.
And they don't have that privilege anymore.
And for those who have lost their parents, both of them are one of them. Right you can reach out by by making dua
that Allah Subhana Allah blesses them and that Allah subhanaw taala, increases them and that Allah subhanaw taala honors them, I will leave you with this point, they said Subhanallah when the child makes up for the parent for a deceased parent, right? It makes it so far, that parent that parents, Allah subhanaw taala would raise them by the virtue of the prayer of their righteous child.
So am I so that the parent will ask why am I getting more blessings? And why did I get this race or this upgrade, if you will, or this promotion agenda?
And they will be told that be dry or be still fatty, what are they like, your child is praying for you.
And that child's prayer was accepted. Therefore you get this race or this promotion or this upgrade in Jannah they get upgraded and they will continue to get upgraded until they reach whatever and then eventually when this child dies, what happens?
Allah Subhana Allah says when the righteous people die in the Quran, it says that when the righteous people die, well let me know with tobacco and there
children follow their on their footsteps of righteousness, Allah azza wa jal will,
will what will reunite them. So this child will be reunited with their parents. And if this child happened to be what? At a lower level, let's say that their deeds were not as
by the virtue of them being the descendant or the child of this righteous person, they're going to Allah subhanaw taala will raise them. So they said when they when you make dua for your parent, you're actually benefiting yourself. Because as your parents basically experiences this, this race or this upgrade or this promotion, eventually, the hope is that you're going to be reunited, and that you're going to catch up with them. And you also get to enjoy that upgrade or that that promotion or that race, somehow. So may Allah azza wa jal make us of those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to. May Allah subhanaw taala bless our parents, may Allah azza wa jal
shower or to see his parents with his mercy, and may Allah subhanaw taala forgive their sins, and may Allah azza wa jal
increase their ranks May Allah azza wa jal makers of those who are pleasing to their to their parents obedient to their parents. May Allah azza wa jal make us enjoy the fruits and the blessings of being at the service of our parents Subhanak along with the shadow Allah Allah Allah
wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
