We begin by thanking and praising Allah.
And we beseech him to shower Mohammed salario salaam with salutations and compliments,
and mercy and blessings. And we ask a lot of teach us that which benefits us and to allow us to benefit from that which he has taught us and to increase us in beneficial knowledge.
We are continuing from last week,
the chapter where we talked about the Prophet sallallaahu Selim dealing with people who have suffered Muslim, mostly bad
or different calamities, and how the prophet SAW sent him dealt with them, how he made them feel, how he interacted with them. What were his words and his behaviors towards these people? We began Of course, with a short introduction talking about what if such events were to happen to us? How should we behave? But throughout this gathering, we like to look at how the Prophet solara Cinema specifically treated other people. So we can emulate that in Sharla.
So the last thing we mentioned was how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
would give people strong incentives to maintain patience. And he would mention that the reward for their patience is nothing less or short,
shorter than Jenna, paradise. And that obviously, is motivation. So the lesson we extracted from that is when you're when you come across individuals that are going through difficult times, allow them to be patient give them hope, by reminding them of a great reward. So they have something to look forward to giving them some some gas some fuel to continue because patience is not easy.
And we mentioned one narration there are a few others under this section. There is one specifically where the prophet SAW Salem was asked to interact with a group of women, an ABC Radio ad or the long run Hawkeye, jt mulatu and Isla rasulillah historicism for clarity on a sort of law. They have a rigid regera we have easic federal and I'm in fck, Yeoman tea coffee heater aluminum Mr. McCullough
will say that Henry narrates that a woman came to the profits of Laredo salon. And she said to him,
one of the Sahaba to another female companions, she said to the prophets, I send them a messenger of Allah, the men get more time with you, they have taken all the opportunity to sit with you and learn from you. And we want to share of your time. So we want you to specify a time just for us that we will gather and you can come and teach us from that which Allah has taught you. So the prophets I sent him said the prophecy I sent him said
it just imagine a omocha worker he told them, okay, why don't you guys gather, get together on a specific day, such and such day? So they said okay, fetch TIMA tahuna Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Fatima Hoon me mera lemahieu la thermopile. So they gathered on that appointed time. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to them dedicated this time, special time for his female companions so happy so the Allahu anhu May Allah be pleased with them. And he taught them he gave them a lesson
from that which Allah had taught him, and then he said, Mammon couldn't have minimal it.
Took a Debian a they have been well it has rotten illa canula hace Jabba Mira now, the prophet SAW said lamb said, you know, specifically to those that were mothers, he said any one of you that is a mother
you know been given or brought forward three children
then those children will be a job will be a protector, a barrier for her from the Hellfire
for clarity, mala truenorth nanny with an ad with a name for God on a sort of line. So I sent him with an a&e with nanny with Nene. So one of the women cried out and she said what if there are only two? How about only two?
Just two is that still work? And I've also sent him said with two that's fine.
Sand pile up pull to the boil water in the hopper Demetri even any former enter Mojave and our civilization and be headed into play will be unfortunate and No. And Montana, a man by the name of Abu Hassan came and he said to the campaign of the president of Ohio, he said that two of my children have died,
two of my children have
So what can you share with me from that which you have heard from what the prophet SAW sent him said, so you can bring comfort to our hearts. So I will hold on I said Nam? He said yes, I did hear something that I can share with you.
So auto home dad meal sorted agenda. Meals is a he said these young children that pass they are the damn yourself agenda. And die meals is a plural word of
it means the
you know, sometimes they would because they would take their water from the well or from a pond or a stream or body a body of water. And sometimes in a container there would be these tiny little bugs if you will, and they're just floating around they're in the water. And it was something overlooked because they're so small and they would just take their water from from different sources. These to call that diamonds. So he said those little children they're like the dad is an agenda. like little children, you know, floating in Elgin. Yeah, tell him about who Oh, call away. For you to be therapy. Okay, labia de cama hoodoo Anna, be sinful to be kochava Farah tena okara Anta he had
Tydfil of Allahu. Allahu Allah. Jenna, is Hadith is narrated in Sahih Muslim, it's authentic hadith, he said. So these little children in Jenna, they meet with their parents in the aphylla in the hereafter. The narration says either parent or parents, either one parent or both parents.
And he said, so they will grab their clothes, they will grab their outer garment or they will grab their hand
and they will not let go. And so then we'll head out. I showed him and he grabbed his. He said the way I'm grabbing by your throat the way I'm grabbing by your garment. No. And he grabbed and he was pulling his garment. He said Fred, I attend to how clarify into he so he doesn't stop pulling. He doesn't let go this child
of his or her parent or parents until a lot enters them both into gender, meaning that child will be the guide that leads them into gender and it'd be more selfish it or the long run sort of lines or cinephile either matter what are the kind of La halimeda ekati adult to monitor Abdi felco Luna Nam feha kulu abelton samata for ad una Nam fire pool Meza Kala AB de fer pollun Amita castalia for para la immunoreactivity beighton children agenda was a movie and so in this hadith which is recorded in the book of autonomy, the the scholar said it is sound of almost a shot he narrates that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that if a parent loses their child, if a parent loses their young child, Allah says to the angels, Allah says to the minute you get to the angels, did you take the soul of that young child? And they will say yes, no. And indeed definitely the angels only act based upon what Allah commands them to do. So Allah says, You have taken the, you know,
fruit of their of their heart or you have taken the the essence of their heart that the most the dearest and most valuable and sweetest thing to them. So allow us say they will say no, yes we did. Based on the decree of Allah, so Allah will say, so what did the parent say Mother Father Abdi, what did my servant the parent of this child say? What was their reaction to this calamity? They said, I mean, our soldier, the only thank you and and remember, do you have a lot and did not speak or other words, except those that show patience and contentment with the decree of Allah. So Allah will say, in that case, build for the servant of mine, a palace in Jenna, and name it the Palace of gratitude,
the Palace of hemd and it will be reserved for them to dwell in in paradise. And if you have a house in Ghana, that means you're going to be in gender.
So that is a great reward for for maintaining patience. What kind of men we'll see maybe we'll see but in any event, even mean Arab, Amina Messiah. Well, he has nothing to do so long it was Allah. The prophet SAW Selim also reminded us to, if we face a calamity
to remember the greatest calamity that is
we feel this honor,
the greatest calamity that this oma ever experienced from the time of the Prophet I sent him until the end of time until the day of judgment.
And that is the death of the prophet SAW Selim himself. There, there has been no loss of a person within the Muslim community over the span of history that was more valuable to this community than the Prophet salado, Salah, the person that was sent that document and denied me the person that was sent as a mercy to the worlds to the species to all creation. And so because he was so valuable, and because he was sent as a light and as mercy and the one carrying
the words of Allah and delivering them,
to the creation of Allah. And so then the passing of Mohammed salado Salaam, is the greatest calamity that this oma has ever experienced.
are not a shuttle totally Allahu Pilate Fatiha Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a bourbon being a who have been a nurse, or kashia cityline at the nursery. You saw Luna
de Becker in
Lahore. And she says that the prophet SAW Selim in his last days, but he was very ill, he was not actually able to even leave his house and go pray in JAMA with the companions. And his house was very close. If this was the message of the prophets, I said lamb, his house would basically be that window over there.
Or maybe this door over here.
That's how close it was. So he had a window and a doorway from his house into the masjid.
And so he was not able didn't even have the energy in the physical health in those last days, to get up out of his room, out of the room right out of the long run, and go and stand and do a sauna with the companions. So he appointed Abu Bakar the Allahu anhu to lead the Salah in his absence. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam opened that window or that curtain between his room and the masjid and he saw that people praying and they're praying behind abubaker
they're standing behind Abubakar in Salah. So Hamid Allah Allah Allah I mean personally highly him Raja nuclear for la houfy him below zero satalia yohannes

I didn't mean Oh multilinear Saba, we will see but in birdie, I said they're only human, mostly Betty is Harry's narrative imagine the scholars greeted as authentic. The Prophet said, Oh, people, evenness.
Any of you that is afflicted any of you from the believers that is afflicted with a calamity. Then let him console himself through his calamity, by remembering the calamity of losing me of my passing of my death.
Because he said, no one from my own will experience a calamity more
that will have more repercussions and impact than my passing. And if you look at the narrations or the Sahaba describe the environment, the city of Medina, after the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed away, you can get a glimpse into the sadness that enveloped the city on that time.
In the shock that this habit experienced,
the companion say that the happiest date in the history of the city of Medina, was the day that the prophets I send them came into that city. And the most tragic day in the history of that city was the day that he passed. He describes the people without it's as if they were all affected by an illness, you know, a fever or an illness that overtook everyone.
The sadness that befell the hearts and the minds of the believers in Medina was something too difficult even to describe a model the Allahu anhu was so shaken by the news that the prophesied Selim passed, that he refused to accept it. He said, No.
It's not possible. And it wasn't until Abu Bakar consoled him and recited verses of the Quran in alchemy to know in whom you tune that you will pass and they will pass as well.
Mohammed Illallah pseudoscalar tabula rasa a matter what Ilan para tomar la kabhi comida. Tim diverse, some sort of the other Emmeline that Mohammed is a messenger from Allah. If he dies or if he is killed, will you then turn back on your heels? Oh my god right off the bat for a little latia somebody who changes their condition and turns
Back on their heels, they're not harming a lot they're only harming themselves. That's why the poet said Elizabeth liquidly mostly but in water gentlelady where lamb unelma higher Omaha Lady for either the quarter mostly written test Ruby half como Saba cabbie Nabi Muhammad, he said, be patient with every single calamity and have strength, be determined to gel and have Jelena have courage and strength to
survive the calamity that has befallen you, and know that no human being is immortal. No human being will live forever.
It's not possible there's no such thing no human being lives forever. For either the countdown we'll see button. So if you want to remember a calamity, that will ease in your current calamity. And then remember, the calamity that you had by missing. The prophet SAW Selim with the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also taught us what to say at the moment when you hear news of a calamity, or you hear news of a test or a difficulty.
And actually Allahu subhana wa tada
explicitly taught that to us in the Quran in surah, Al Baqarah. In verses 155 to 157 Allah says, what I never do an akuna minal horfield, jewelry when oximeter, myt, will emphysema. thammarat wabasha is Siberian. Allah says, definitely, you're going to experience loss
of some sort, fear and loss and hunger and a decrease in wealth and life. people close to you are going to pass away with them a lot and in your crops and in your assets and your wealth. Well, by sheer disobedience, everybody's going to go through some form of loss or some form of hunger or some form of fear or some form of difficulty. But Allah says give good news to those that maintain patients. Who are they? A levena either cassava too Tomasi baton Carlo in Mariela here in la hora de Rouen without him sada to me Robbie himolla aka whom Allah
Allah says, Who are they a Siberian they are those that when any calamity or difficulty falls upon them. They say, in not in LA, or in LA or LA June, they make this thicker. They make this prayer this supplication in not in LA, or in LA or LA Do you guys know it?
You all know it.
You don't know it. Let's say it together. Inna lillahi was in
LA he alloggi rune. It means we all belong to Allah.
We all belong to Allah, we allows our Creator we came from him we came into existence when he determined for that to be and we will expire when he determined that we will expire. You didn't choose when to be created. So we're not going to choose when to die either.
In our in law, he we belong to Allah. But in that era, he allowed your own end to him we are going to return
unto Him we will all return definitely. Would I carry him out I went to middle of the Himalaya with a Kahuna move to do and Allah says those people definitely, they will have prayers from Allah, they will have mercy from Allah, and they are rightly guided. They have Hidayat if they can maintain the patience to remember that fact.
That when something difficult befalls them that they remember, you know what, I'm from a lie I'm created by Allah, I belong to Allah, I am a lost property. I'm a servant of Allah. I am here to obey Him and do what pleases Him. And in the end, I will return back to him if they can remember that and they can make an order the statement that reflects that belief. Then they are rightly guided and when we said our motto do long run a pilot Samir total sort of like his online radio send me a pool mermin Muslim into Cebu mostly batroun fakuma Amara Hola.

Messina narrates he, she is a companion of the prophet SAW Selim and she also Well, I won't tell you what she was also Let's hear the Hadith.
She says I heard the prophets I send them say any Muslim, that experiences a calamity. But they react by only saying that which Allah commanded them to say in this way
So tillbaka in narela here in LA here Roger if that's their reaction, the prophets I send them made a promise made a guarantee
the profit guaranteed
they make the statement the profit added something as well I said Johnny fee mostly but to LA reward me in this calamity make this difficulty a cause and a reason for reward. Welcome lovely, higher Amina, and wherever you have taken from me whatever I am now deficient of, Oh Allah replace it for me with something better than what you have taken. If it's some wealth of Allah give me better wealth, if it's some health, or like, give me some better health than that. If it's an opportunity, or like give me a better opportunity if it's a job if it's a family member, or like give me better than what you have taken from me. Illa Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola Mina. If they say that with certainty,
the prophet guaranteed Allah will replace them with something better than that which they have lost.
So I'm sad I'm I heard this
and she says Fatima Mata Abu Salah when her husband, I will send Emma who she loved dearly. And he was one of the companions of the Prophet. So I sent him and he was of the early companions of the early people and of the people that made the first Hill up to Abyssinia, a virtuous and pious and righteous men. He said, when he passed away, I thought to myself, who amongst the Muslims is better than Abu Salah. She couldn't think of anyone better than ever cinema. This is the greatest possible man that I could have had in my life. And he died.
And she remembered the relationship that he had with the process. I said him and his virtue and the things that he did and the hedge law and all of these things, who's better than it was
but she said, from a nickel to habit, you know what I remembered what the prophet said. So I stopped at that point, and I just said, what the Prophet taught us to say, in Nadella who were in a in a larger and larger majority film we'll see but to fluffy Halo minha.
She said, then, for Allah Allahu Allah, Allah, so Allah, so Allah replaced me with that loss with the Messenger of Allah. Rasool Allah ended up marrying her. After she was widowed, she became the wife of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, she became one of Omaha to meaning. So she used to reflect, although she loved Abu Salah so much, and she still loved him, even after his death. But the believers have a special love for the prophet SAW Selim, and Osama and those few select so happy at the mothers of the believers, they were able to combine between loving the prophecy center as their messenger and as their teacher and as their leader, but also as their husbands.
And ally made mention of the mothers of the believers in the salon.
And they are people that we honor and respect and there are mothers. So she said a lot replaced that loss for me with all sorts of lies a lot of sense. So did not the promise of Allah and His Messenger come true? It did indeed.
What can I add her home any directory and an FC are in the war in mostly about? Likewise, on the flip side, the prophets I said, I'm also warned and told us to be careful, control our tongues at the time of a calamity and never make against ourselves.
That is something that prophets are sending categorically forbade us from doing

which is recorded in the book of Muslim it's authentic, the prophet SAW Selim said, and this hadith is general it's not only at a time of calamity, its general calamity or no calamity. The Prophet said do not make against yourselves. Do not make drama against your children.
This is also very important, a lot of parents they will become so frustrated and so angry with their children, they will make against them.
And that's, that's a big problem. And that shouldn't be done.
And it's difficult sometimes, especially because the parent cares so much. Why are they so frustrated it's only because they care. And so when the child that gives them a really hard time they may make against their child and that's very serious. They should never ever do that. Do not make that against your children. Do not make your against your servants so your workers or your employees do not make against your wealth or your assets or your property and do not the puffs I send them Don't ever do that. Because you never know you
Might be making at a time when Allah will answer whatever do you make you know how the saying says, Be careful what you wish for? Yeah. Seriously, be careful what you wish for. Be careful what you make out for it.
Because it could be an hour or a time where Allah answers all the drawers
and so that might be answered and, and somebody or yourself might get some harm from that. And especially at a time of mostly by especially at a time of calamity. I'm Sarah my narrates Alright, let's

This narration is in Sahih Muslim
Salamat the same person we were talking about earlier though, who became the wife of the Prophet I sent him when her husband died, Abu Salah, the prophets I sent him came to the house, and he had just passed away, and his eyesight basically rolled back. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam closed his eyes. And he said, once the soul departs, the eyes follow
the eyes or the eyesight follows the soul as it's being removed from the body. And so the process I sent him closed his eyes. And so when he did that, and he said that, and everyone basically realized, and it was confirmed that I will send him I had passed away, the people there began screaming and yelling, and saying things from you know, despair. So the promise I sent him stopped them and he said, Do not make up upon yourselves except for that which is good. He said, Because whatever you make draft for them, and he can say, I mean, the minute you can say I mean, I mean means Allahumma Egypt, Oh Allah answer this.
So when you make a drama The angels are saying I mean, also in another Hadith of the prophets, I send them he said, when you make a drop the angel say, like I will miss it, the angel say, and for you the same, the angels make the same drive back to you if you're making around for someone else. So it's to be very careful what you're making draft for because the angels aren't gonna say, I mean, the angels are gonna make that for you. And you never know if that
you know, meets a time or an opening of the skies that Allah has opened the heavens, and that there I will be answered, but rather the process that I'm taught them what to say so he said Allah homophone. Oh ALLAH forgive and conceal the sins of Abu selama Allah raise his rank amongst the rightly guided, Oh Allah, Grant those that he leaves behind something better than what they have lost. Oh Allah forgive us and forgive him, oh Lord of the worlds and expand for him his grave and fill it with light for him.
What can I enter into a Hollywood Nia, the prophet SAW I said, I'm also forbade the people of screaming and reacting in a way that is
an expression of lack of content.
There is a practice now some people do it just out of lack of control. But actually, in some cultures, they force themselves to do it. Especially the women so they will gather women when someone dies. And they will have a wailing session to specifically mourn the loss. And some people are actually wailing because they're very sad, and other people are just doing it as part of a practice. Like this is something you're supposed to do. Like this is something respectful to the dead person. We have to show that we really miss this dead person so we have to wail and scream and the prophets I said I'm forbade from all of those behaviors.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in a hadith
the purpose I sent him palace all along I said I'm Lisa minimum barbell who do the Shaku Baba be there? Well, Jay Hillier is the head etherion Bukhari and Muslim. The Prophet I sent him said, that person is not from amongst us, they're not from our community. Who is it? The one who
strikes their face hits themselves, or rips their clothing, or yells out or makes calls that the people from the era of ignorance used to make these are
Or pre Islamic practices. When people would die, they would hit themselves, or they would tear their clothing, or they would scream or wail. These are practices that are not expressions of patience. They're not expressions of contentment with a loss decree.
Now, that doesn't mean that you can't be sad. That doesn't mean that you cannot express sadness. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when his son by him died, the prophet SAW said I'm cried.
And the Prophet I said him said in the line and attend them are in a collaboration. We're in Latika Ibrahim with Mr. Zhu,
Zhu Li Mario de la buena, the prophesize lm said the eye sheds tears. And the heart is torn with sadness. And we are
devastated at our loss of view, oh, Ibrahim, his son, but on him. He said, but we don't say except what pleases Our Lord, in narela here in the in a ledger. So to be sad, it's not a problem. That's a natural emotion. Of course, somebody will be sad when they suffer a loss and to to cry. You know, that's perfectly normal. As a matter of fact, as we mentioned last week, crying is a sign of mercy. When the Prophet I sent him cried, and the companion said Maha they are the sort of lies that now the ultimate is that this is mercy from Allah, Allah placed it in the hearts of the believers. So to shed tears, that's an expression of mercy that Allah has put in the hearts of the believers, but
we're not talking about that we're talking about the far extreme, screaming, wailing, destroying property, throwing things, hitting oneself hitting others, etc.
You know, some, some cultures will have certain clothing that must be worn for X number of days after someone dies. You know, certain practices you cannot do, some people will not bathe or they won't shower, or they won't eat, you know, or they'll, you know, do certain things a lot. A lot of different cultures have different practices, stopping the clocks, you know, putting, you know, closing all the curtains, no sunlight allowed in the house or different things like that. And all of these practices are practices of the process of them did not condone, the process, I sent him celebrated life, and their prophecy SLM encouraged us to make the best of life.
But part of life is death. There's nothing more certain in the experience of life than death. And so before we die, we also are going to experience the death of others around us. We feel sadness, we remember them we make for them, we take that as a reminder for us that, hey, we better live our lives upright because we will be meeting the same conclusion just like they did as well. We give them their due rights, we never forget them in our prayers and in making good mention of them. But that doesn't mean that life ceases to
continue, or we can we stop functioning, you know. So dealing with grief is also something that the prophesies that I'm taught us to be very careful about. And for some people that by me more difficult. Some people it'll be more difficult for them to deal with that grief. And so if they need to seek therapy if they need to get help, if they need to talk to a professional or get some help to overcome that and get past that. We would say that as part of the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Allah because the Sunnah of the Prophet I sent him is to is to understand calamities, to respond to them in the appropriate way, but to move on. It's not good to dwell upon calamities. That's not part of
the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Also, not just in death, but even the calamity of illness or sickness or some other kind of loss or injury of narrative de la jolla la Miranda also like us on our cinema dadada let me set up a call. Man akia Messiah

The author says so Indian had either either Salafi nury, the hubba hubba, who were Bhakti or Safi and karateka metaphoric greensand. The prophet SAW Selim he visited a woman by the name of Messiah, and she was you know, complaining and making different statements and sounds and whatnot. The problem I sent him said, What's wrong? What do you what are these sounds? What's wrong with you? What's going on? And she said, fever lobata Kola houfy high fever, may God not bless. You know this, this fever. May God curse this fever basically.
And the prophets I said him said don't curse the fever. He said because this fever is coming and it's cleansing you it's removing
All of the sins from you the same way that you know L key, which is basically that
what is it?
The oven where they would put iron in to melt it so they can purify it and shape it. whatever it's called. He said the same way you you put iron in intense heat, and it removes the impurities and then you can bang it and shape it and clean it and do whatever you need to do with it says that's the same thing. That's what the fever does. It cleanses and it removes you have the impurities of sins and poor choices, and even your best in the long run. And then it'd be SLR cinema da da da da bien. You really do have a Canada who nabasa por hora, insha Allah Allah tahune Kela Bell he a human to fool otaku, Allah shakin Kabir to 00 Hulu for car leviosa SLM phenom even while I'm Mr.
alabi metabolic the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to a Bedouin man
alharbi someone who lived outside of civilization. And, and he told the man was very ill. So the problem that sort of made this door out for him, which is a drive that you should make when you visit or you see someone who is sick. You say the hulan in sha Allah
is you guys know this?
You know, Emma,
You all know in sha Allah Bahu Bahu means cleansed and purified. In sha Allah, meaning you will be cleansed or you will be purified God Willing from this illness.
So it's positive, thinking positively looking to the future positively.
So the Prophet made this drought to this man. He said, Oh, hold on, inshallah. You will be cleansed and purified by the will of God. The man said, he said, cleansed, purified. He said Kela Definitely not. He said, Well, he or her metaphor. He said, this is a fever. It's like bubbling or thought it's like, you know,
like boiling water. It's bubbling and sizzling inside me. And actually think about it upon an old man. It's just gonna take him to his grave.
You know, and so he started going on like this and speaking in this manner, in a very,
in a way that's not accepting of that.
of the prophet SAW Selim. So the prophet SAW Selim said,
okay, have it your way then.
The narrator Martin Malone's Adrian Assalam, the narrator of in the chain of narration said that I'll be very shortly after that he died.
Very shortly after that, he passed away. And Allah knows if he had accepted the drought of the prophet SAW Selim, but he would have been cured from that illness. So say Bahujan insha Allah when you see someone who is sick, and also if you're sick and someone comes to you and says hello to inshallah say I mean sha Allah and be reminded that of the positivity
that this could be something that cleanses me and purifies me and cleans me just like when they want to clean metal they got to stick it in under intense heat to clean it. So the same way no in our hearts get so hard from the different sins and poor choices they become hard like rock like metal. So if you want to clean that metal, you got to put it under some heat to soften it a little bit.
So these are actually opportunities from a lot to be cleansed to be purified. What kind of solara cinema in Harmon does it have to be hemo see button any a terminal motor?
Literally Latina, Celebi, also the professor said and forbade us to wish or ask for death. If we are experiencing a very difficult calamity. Sometimes people might, excuse me experienced something that's so intense, that they'll say you know what, it's better if I just die, maybe I just should die. I hope I can just die. And that's it. I won't have to deal with this test anymore. It doesn't only have to be an illness, it could be other things as well.
And, and some people actually take matters into their own hands. So a lot of people get suicidal thoughts and ideas. doesn't only have to be from an illness. It could be from emotional experience.
And they become suicidal and that's very problematic, obviously.
And actually, that's something that the Muslim community is not immune of.
I don't think we talked about it enough here. But there are people within the community that have these feelings and these ideas and they feel that there is no more hope. And and they actually will physically do
Things to end their life. And it has happened within our community. It's also something that's not comfortable for us to talk about, especially family members of people that have committed suicide. You know, there's some stigma. So we shouldn't make people feel bad. If
they have gone through a phase like that in the past, or if someone in their family has gone through that we should never ever, ever shame people or ridicule them, because they might have experienced that in their family. But at the same time, let us recognize that this is a real phenomenon. And we have to always think about how to be supportive, and how to bring people feelings and messages of hope.
So that they don't ever resort to those kinds of measures. And try and recognize that and be supportive and be good listeners, before it's too late.
You know, so many people who end up doing these types of
things, committing suicide, whatnot. And people are shocked. Oh, my God, I didn't even know. Yeah, we didn't know because we didn't sit down with them to listen to them. We didn't make them feel comfortable enough to share what they were actually going through. Of course, we wouldn't know. So being a good listener, being supportive, making people feel comfortable enough to share with us what they are going through, and if we can help in any way to help, and if we can't help, maybe we can guide them to someone that can look, your case is really big. I'm not qualified to handle that. But let me help you find someone who can help you. That's the least that we can do on a very individual
But even a step before that, even just making those statements or desiring
death, and unnecessary medical the Allahu katakolon abuse or asylum Litem, and then how to camalote mandoline Saba, who, for in Canada wood, factory, then fully allow any mechanic to hire to hire only whatever funny either candidate in welfare to hire only this head is narrowed in Bukhari and Muslim the province I set him on the authority of minister of nomadic said, none of you should ever wish for death. None of you should ever wish, or ask for death, to come upon you.
Because of some difficulty or some calamity that you're experiencing, he says we're in Canada with the Fairyland. He says, What if matter is get so bad, and so difficult, that you feel I just have to ask to be for my life to be taken. And the prompts I send them said, then don't ask for death, but make this draft, which is Oh Allah, keep me alive. As long as you know that life is what's best for me. And take my soul, when you know that it is best for me to return back to you.
And there's a beauty in this draft, which is, that's already what allows going to do.
So you are making a darat which is reaffirming what Allah has determined and already destined and recorded.
It's, you're just reminding yourself of that. And there is positivity in that.
Because you've gotten, you've gotten to such a position where a person feels like, let me just die right now. I just wish I could die. But rather you ask Allah Oh Allah grant me life as long as life is what's best, because it's possible that death could be what's best for a person at a particular time. It's possible that them passing is that that death at that time, they returned back to Allah, and if they're sincere and righteous, they have reward with a law, they will be rewarded, and they will be prevented from more harm that would befall them. But see, we don't know the future. So we can't make that determination. We can't make it for ourselves. We can't make it for other people.
So leave that decision in the hands of Allah and express contentment with either with either scenario, so Oh, Lord, grant me life as long as you know that life is what's best for me and take my soul. When you know that death is what's best for me.
Okay, little Bama minute masaba, middle ear t 50, d batteries, mot hoefer and E he manages something else at the office I sent him did sometimes is.
So a practice that's very common is if people have a family member that passes away.
They will make it a point for people in that family. Everyone will want to go and physically see the body of that person before they are buried before they're buried. I've even been to some Genesis, where it's actually a
cultural practice. So they'll bring the body up until the grave, they're like, Oh, go stop, and they put it down on the ground, and then everybody make a circle and then all the women have to come and and you know,
you know, kiss the face of that person before they obeyed whatnot. These are practices that have no basis. In it's not, there's nothing wrong to see the body of the person has died, especially if you're going to be washing and preparing the janazah. But the problem is I said, I'm dealt with the situation on a case by case basis, there are some people that being in that situation is too much for them to handle. So seeing the body of that family member or loved one may cause them to react in a way that is very unhealthy. And that will only intensify the grief. So if that's the case, then the process I sent him would not allow them to go and see the body because it will make matters
worse for them. It'll make it more difficult for them to move beyond this calamity.
And from that we have the story of Sofia.
After the death of her brother

I have a pilot has an ether bandage it to be Hema Aki Hamza taka divani moqtada. Who for caffine movie Hema, the prophets I said I'm sorry, Sophia coming.
And this was after Hamza was killed in the battle. And Hamza on the lower end when the battle was not only killed, but he was actually the wife of Abu sufian, who was not Muslim yet. This was in the third year after the hedgehog, she mutilated his body. So she cut his body into pieces and she removed some of his organs. It was a very hateful and evil thing, but that was how much hate
that she had for the believers at that time.
So the problem is that I saw her so he called out he said, you know, that woman over there that woman get hurt. So
I was so bad. So sob basically went and caught up to her. And he said I caught up to her just before she reached the area where the Shahadat where the dead. The martyrs from the battle for hard work were laying
and he said I stopped her and she was in front of his chest and she was a strong woman. But so she told him you know, get away from me Get out of my way. And so he told her you know, I'm sorry I can't get out of the way the prophets I send them told me to stop you.
So she stopped and she took two pieces of cloth that she had brought she said well I brought these two pieces of cloth for my brother Hamza forgot where avani it has reached me the news that he was killed so shroud him in these two pieces of cloth

Kula hidden min Houma, Toby Lydia sobre la who, so they said we took those two piece of cloth and when we came to Hamza, we found beside him, one of the men from the unsought and it had been done to him the same thing that was done to Hamza in terms of abuse and physical mutilation and whatnot. And so they said, We became ashamed that how can we shroud Hamza in two pieces of cloth and this man he has no cloth for for us to shout him in. So we shrouded Hamza in one cloth and we use the other one for the other men from the unsought and one was a little bit bigger than the other. So we use the appropriate one for the appropriate person based on the size and nsmt American pilot is also

hatay your shadow milky Amati winbot Tanya,
the Prophet sallahu wa sallam said in his Hadith which is narrated in in the book of Ahmed
When he came upon Hamza, and he found his body in the way that it was. He said,
If Sophia had come across Hamza and seen him this way, she would have stayed beside him like this until she would have died herself.
Meaning she would have been so overcome with grief and with sadness, she wouldn't have been able to part and leave his sight.
The process I sent him then called and asked for
Nebula here, border mahatama in souf, it's a piece of cloth that is stitched with some wool, and the process that has been shrouded Hamza with it until it covered, it wasn't big enough to cover his whole body. So he covered
his his, he wrapped it around his his head of the Allahu taala. And who.
So basically, this is an example of the prophets, I said lamb, preventing Sophia from seeing the body, because she would have been overcome with grief. So if we know that somebody is,
is not going to be emotionally strong enough at that moment, then that's not necessarily a practice that we should allow them to continue. Somebody else should wash the body and prepare the janazah someone who is able to maintain composure and patience. And actually I spoke to a brother one time, who wanted to go and
prepare the janessa have a family member. And when he went inside the room basically passed up, he lost consciousness and fell down and then people ended up having to take care of him.
So it's a difficult situation to be in not anybody can handle it, anybody experienced that anybody prepare the genomes of someone.
You've done that before you've done it. So it's not an easy task.
It's not an easy task. And there's an appropriate Sunnah and way to handle that.
It's good to learn.
It's good to learn that and and if you think you can handle it, it's good to do that it will be a very, first of all, you're serving the right it's a right of the person that they be washed and cleanse and shrouded and, and
made to smell nice before they are laid in their grave.
So it's fulfilling their rights, their help, especially if they're a family member. But also in addition to that, it serves as a very powerful reminder for you as well. But everybody knows themselves although him alone, but in our falcoda lanessa almost said, may Allah have mercy on a person who knows their level and where they stand upon. So if someone knows that they can't handle that experience, then they should be cautious, or they should be careful. But Trisha is 915 around this over. Bye.
I was hoping to finish the chapter because we are going to be taking a break. But
But it seems like it's a bit long.
Let's see if we can select some things.
let's mention a few things that the SLM would do also,
with regards to family members, family members of those that have passed away, they might be orphans, for example, or widows or single parents or whatnot. So the prophecy I said I'm used to encourage that people in that situation that they be taken care of, especially after they suffer a loss or a calamity. So take care of them physically tangibly, kind of her through it it alarmingly when a time and suddenly we decided to allow her anywhere in our, in our cafeteria team if in jannetty, Hakka shala We also were at a subhabrata. One was spot, the Prophet solara Cinema the authority of serendipity, Saturday, in a hadith which is recorded and we'll call it it's authentic,
he said me and the one who takes care of the affairs of an orphan are like these two in general, and he placed his index in his middle finger together side by side, meaning we will be close together in general, meaning if you take care of the affairs of an orphan, you will have the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in gender, which is a huge reward. So I know we've been mentioning a lot of, excuse me, a lot of
ways of showing emotional support, and spiritual support, emotional care, and all of that is valid and that's the first step to
understanding emotions, all of that is good, but even on top of that, so tangibly, so financially and physically being there to the assistance of
someone that has experienced a calamity especially especially orphans. Whenever you hold a lotta
a little bit longer anywhere it may be a little longer it was cinema but, uh, sorry. I didn't mean it will miskeen Karamoja hedp Sabina, Cebu parle opelka me laughter oka site slightly meet laughter. This is a hadith narrated in Bukhari and Muslim well hold on area the prophet SAW Selim said, the one who is working, the one who's running back and forth, to see to the affairs of widows and orphans and those who have lost Misaki those that are poor because of a loss, maybe it was a father, maybe it was an uncle, maybe it was a mother, maybe it was someone that was taking care of them, and they have passed away. So they are now at a great, you know, loss. Two problems I sent him the
person who runs back and forth, seeing to the affairs and helping this person, he says is like the one who is Mujahid feasibility law, like the one who is doing jihad for the sake of Allah, or like the one who is, you know, standing there not wavering in their standing or the one who is fasting, they never break their fast. You know, imagine if you had the pleasure of being a fasting person non stop, even while you're eating. Imagine having the Agile of them, which I hate, even when you're asleep in your bed, you have the opportunity to do that, by working and looking after the affairs of widows and orphans of Misaki.
And some of our teachers actually used to do that.
We've become very accustomed to just putting a amount of money in a box somewhere in a donation box, or maybe just making a payment online, through your credit card, or like the best of us might have like an ongoing charity AutoPay that we forget about which is beautiful, which is great.
But there is a sit there is a secret. And there is a
there is a special fruit and benefit that you can only reap when you physically go there and help people that are in need yourself physically with your hands.
And that's why a collage is a cat taking out as a cat and actually delivering it to the poor, there's a lot of virtue in that. And I know it's facilitated for us, a lot of us will just put the cat money in the donation box. And Mashallah we have a lot of charity organizations and volunteers that do that for us. And that's good. May Allah accept that good deed. But at least once in a while, actually go out yourself and interact with needy people themselves. Not because you're doing them a favor, but actually you're doing yourself a favor, and and give them with your own hands. So actually, some of our teachers in Medina, they actually used to do this, they would actually take
time out every once in a while and go visit people in their homes. And I went with one of my teacher, and we went in certain neighborhoods I didn't even know existed. I mean, you'd be on a main street and you think, you know, the whole neighborhood, but you go left and right, an alleyway. And all of a sudden, you're, you're in a place and you're like man, people actually live here. Yes, people live in very difficult conditions, they would knock on people's doors and give them food, give them money, give them different things that they might have needed medicine, you know, by hand. And the gratitude that you see from people in those situations is
Unbelievable. I mean, the gratitude that it's just piercing from their eyes, the love that they have for you at that time, the door that they are making, from the bottom most of their heart that's sincere throughout this amazing reward in that that's a big lesson and you will feel so grateful, you'll come out of there feeling like you're the most blessed, fortunate human being on earth. And it's good to feel that way recognize the blessings of Allah.
So so that's a beautiful act, and gesture and activity that that we should do. And it doesn't need to be publicized in the day and age of social media where we want to share everything. We don't need to share that. So do it and don't tell us about it. Just to hear grandchildren about it when you're very very old. May Allah grant you with lung blessing life. But don't post it on social media. Because you might risk losing the reward of that, because you'll get a lot of praise of people but we're not after the praise of people who were interested in the reward from Allah.
What can I say about Lily Mousavian? I mean, you have our own human mostly by Team financially giving people at a time when they are suffering a calamity. That's something that Prophet did himself in America by the Fatah if I
had waited on solving emphysema, the prophet SAW Selim, some of the people in Mecca after the area of Mecca and area of life, basically
and and except to the prophets I said them and stopped fighting against him. A lot of the people you know we're very new to Islam and so the prophets I sell them you know gave them actual wealth gave them money we mentioned that in the hotel one time so much so on saw the believers that came with a prophecy lesson from Medina. They were like what's going on here? We are the ones that have been supporting you all of these years you didn't give us a monetary gift that valuable. And as somebody medical the Allahu anhu call Gemma and I said I'm NASA minute on site if a call in operation Heidi who
didn't beija helia Well, mostly about Manero Manero, but to the academy him refer to him when he Allah to an age below him. We're at a level the puffs I said, I'm told the inside Listen, a lot of these people from koresh are brand new to Islam. They are just entering into this community, and they are not entering in the most cheerful of states. They just recently lost a lot of family members, a lot of wealth in different battles and different wars and whatnot. So the prophets I send them gave them actual gifts to console them so they would feel better. They would feel that they're a part of the community and they're not forgotten. So the process I said I'm did these kinds of acts
and gestures. And these are a variety of different calamities. It's not just one single calamity of death or of sickness or illness, but basically different situations where people are going through a hard time the process of them will try to be there and support them emotionally, spiritually and here also tangibly and financially as well. So May Allah subhana wa Tada, bless us and grant is still to follow in the footsteps of our beloved messenger and follow in his character and emulate him in his flock in his beautiful adapt and manners. We are going to be pausing for a few weeks
