smilla Hello Amanda Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
wa salatu salam
ala let me know Allah Allah He will be here Jemaine La Mer Lim ma a phone our phone Abby married limped and I was eating.
After thanking and praising Allah, we beseech him to shower Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with compliments and salutations. And we ask Allah to teach us that which benefits us and to allow us to benefit from what he has taught us. We were in the chapter of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his dealings with
a specific segment of society, and those were the ones that were experiencing poverty. We're experiencing poverty. And we talked about how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was active
and took the initiative when it comes to giving and feeding, even if he did not have the ability to do so. He would delegate others. That was the last thing that we
next section, what kind of sort of law where it was your issue? LEAH Kunal Kudo, Tara whom, for somebody with the hangman, the prophet SAW Selim not only
was nice to them,
and made draft for them, and not only tried to help them or if he couldn't find someone to help them. But the prophet actually lived with them in their conditions,
experiencing alongside them that which they are experiencing, so that he would be the complete and the most perfect role model.
See, because oftentimes, you might say, well, so and so is my role model, but at a certain point in time, I'm experiencing something he or she is not experiencing. So then there becomes a gap there. But no, with the processing them, there wasn't any gap in the time of need and poverty. He was there with them at a time of wealth and when everyone he was there with them. So he was actually living in the circumstances that they were living in. Let's look at some narrations that describe that and see my kidney out. I'm in Paris. I'm here to North America. lt vocal Decker or Mr. Roma. asaba. NASA, in a dounia fertile naka de la Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam over Luma delta V Maya g do.
Naya g do Dr. Lin yamla ob Hakuna
this narration says that
C McKibben help says I heard a Norman as he's giving a sermon he says that aroma model the Aloha aroma. So this is after the prophet SAW Selim Rama is remembering Omar is speaking to the people.
Ma Saba national Mina dunya once people started having more wealth, so the Muslim nation at that time grew, and their finances also grew as well. And so at the time of Ramadhan, Armand is the halifa
there were people that experienced more wealth than how the Sahaba were a much smaller community that did not have that much wealth with the profit slice in them. So Omar is lamenting and remembering.
He says, I saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Omar says he saw the prophet SAW him.
He would remain a day and then the next day after that, and the next day after the day after day, so this wasn't just a one time occurrence. This is day after day. He says that the days would pass and the Prophet did not even find
He says a ductile which is the worst quality of dates, lowest quality of dates.
You know like in Ramadan time when you get those nice big fat juicy California Medjool dates. And everybody goes to the
Arabic Arabic market stores on brick Kirsten gets boxes and boxes of them. Those are some nice juicy and you bite into that it's like it's like a piece of meat.
Like, no, it's not a piece of meat. You know what I'm talking about right has a lot of flesh to it.
It's not like a piece of meat close enough?
No, that's good quality data, a ductile is like so then imagine if you have like a plate of those. And then there's one that's all like shriveled up, and it's brown. And then if you like you crack it open, it's got all the little black tiny little bugs in there. Would you eat that?
Would you eat it? You did it.
Well, I even if I was hungry, I don't think I did it. I would just drink this nice water that Arnold gave me suck along and Holden nibi.
So Omar is saying the day is going the day after day, and the Prophet does not even find that that poor quality date even that he doesn't have
yamla oB hibakusha. So that he can just put something in his stomach just fill his stomach with even the poorest, quality date, even that he couldn't find. So the longer it was. So it wasn't a show. It wasn't an act. When the prophet SAW Selim is interacting with this segment of society, and he knows what they're experiencing, it's because he actually does, because he's experienced it himself.
And that's, you know, it's from the wisdom of Allah Subhana Allah that Allah sort of low went through all of these different phases. So he is the complete role model. So if I am not in that situation, and most of us I think most of us are not in that situation, what hamdulillah most of us are not going day after day.
May Allah subhanaw taala
maintain the blessings that he has
blessed us with.
Maybe I have some well played the prophets I send them did he receive wealth? Yes, he did. So if I want to find the living example of how to handle it, I can find it in the prophesized.
poverty, hunger, yes, you can find it in the prophets I send them as well. Complete role model. And he has him in Colorado at Colorado. You shear will be ossuary

A B hasm says I saw a boo hora, motioning with his finger.
She will be elsewhere motioning with his finger. And he's saying, I swear by the one in whose hand is my soul. My life is in his control. He's swearing By Allah,
the prophet of Allah, Mohammed Salah Salem, him and his family. They were never completely full shall be at you know, like when you eat so much. You're like, Okay, that's it. I've had enough. Please have some more. No, no, I'm full. I'm done. I'm done.
He or his family did not have that for three days consecutively
ever, even if it's just from some bread until he left this dounia
meaning if there was an instance where the offseason an eight, and his family ate until they ate to their Phil, if that happened, it wouldn't happen the next day. And if it happened The next day, it didn't happen the third day. There was no time days in a row.
You and I work for three consecutive meals
in the same day. Breakfast, lunch and dinner for
breakfast, fill it to the max lunch, fill it to the max dinner, fill it to the max. You know what? A couple snacks in between.
That's just in the same day. But the prophets lie I said no. Three consecutive days ago Herrera says he did not and he's swearing by Allah that that didn't happen. So Bill Hill is not just exaggerating. He's taking an oath with God Almighty that this didn't happen.
For all too.
There is another narration what affordable hottie in
In the recording in the book of Bodhi, it says Masha Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. min puram insalata yameen Hata ObiWan. He says that the family of the prophet SAW Selim did not get full from a meal did not reach complete
satiation for three days consecutively until until they died. Isha says to her Ottawa
who was her nephew robina zubayr was her nephew. She said to him, even if t in could not a number l helali for Mel Hillel. So Mel Helen, Sarah said Hilton Fisher when warmer, warmer, warmer, okay, that's a big lawsuit as I said a minute.
She says to her nephew, who was otoa, Abu Zubaydah, robina Zubaydah is her nephew, the son of her sister Zubaydah was made to the sister of Ayesha.
She says, oh, son of my sister.
We used to look at the crescent, the Hillel, the crescent, which indicates what
there's a crescent in the middle of
the middle of the month you have a
better full moon.
But there is full moon in Arabic. Hillel is a crescent. So in the beginning of the month, you have a crescent. In the end of the month, you have another Crescent or a month? How can you distinguish between the crescent of the beginning of the month and the end of the month?
You're not sure which side okay. Think of the letter P and the letter D.
So if you have a crescent, and you put a line across the two points, you put a line down and it spells the letter P. That's the beginning of the month.
And if you put a line and it's lowercase
and that is the end of the month.
So beginning of the month, the opening is towards your left end of the month, the opening is towards your right. Make sense? Think of letter P and D.
So she says we would see the halal, the crescent, then we would see the next hill
then we would see the next one falletta Hilah three crescents we see.
Okay, Fisher Helene over the span of two months. So two, four months in between them the beginning of the third month, she says and in the houses of the process of Abby at all of the house of the prophesied seller. No fire was lit. No fire was lit.
What does that mean? Brian? No fire was lit. Why do they need to light a fire?
They did not have induction stove?
Do you have an induction stove? I mean, either. But I heard they're pretty cool.
So the way they would cook is they would actually light a fire. So if you pass by a house in those day and ages, and you saw that there's a fire and there's smoke coming out. That means something's cooking.
Something's cooking. So there was no food they didn't, meaning they did not have a cooked meal.
over the span of three months.
That's pretty intense. So he asked her what would you ask if somebody told you that? What would go the first question that come to your mind be?
Would you say Brian?
Why am I picking on you? I don't know. It just like seemed like a good thing to do today. No more picking on you. Okay.
You would say what did they eat? That's exactly what I said.
Okay, no more picking. You forgive me.
Okay. He said, You're still picking on me. So I asked her. What did you guys used to live off of? What do you guys used to eat? Oh, so we're done at tomorrowworld Matt. Elana, who are the cannoli rasulillah you saw cinema geolandar a minute onsolve can enter the home and I show can we I
mean Alberni him, Festina.
She says we used to eat the two black things to black, a tomato, Walmart, dates and water, dates and water. Why did they refer to water as something black dates? Fine, it's black. You see most I mean, there's some brown dates. But in Medina, the prevalent dates in Medina were
black and color. Why was the
refer to as black as well.
Hmm. Wasn't pure. So it may be had some like a mod or something like that or something. Yeah. Okay, that's one reason What's another possibility?
Oh, it's like
coca cola? No, it wasn't Coke, I promise you reminding me of my friend esalaam we used to in Ramadan, we would take a glass of coke and dates him like soI dance and they no row.
Not that so. Yes.
we put water in plastic bottles, right? Or a glass cup
Or if you're like, really, you know, you might have like some kind of container or something. But what did they use to keep water in
a leather pouch, some kind of leather canteen type of thing or like a bag literally like a type of leather bag that was like stitched something like that. Or what else some kind of container of metal maybe or something.
Right? Maybe like a clay pot or something like that. I had a friend in Medina, he used to drink water out of this old like it was made of natural clay.
And it would keep the water cold. And it would kind of give it like a certain earthy taste. It was actually kind of nice. I'm not gonna lie. It was very interesting. Anyways, so those kinds of things does the water look see through like how it is now, when you look into that container? What do you see?
Black? It's not opaque. Right?
So So then,
but she says except
Why am I going to this detail because a lot of times we read a hadith and then you just read the translation and it's like this don't make sense. The two black things dates and water, water and black.
Right. So sometimes a little bit of context helps us to understand the vocabulary terms.
She says except that the prophets I said um, had some neighbors from an Ansel and they used to have some animals and sometimes they would get some milk from those animals and they would give us some milk.
So we would drink from the milk was animals, maybe sheep or goats, something like that.
this is also really crazy.
He says pilot as a pilot This is recorded in Makati and Muslim Isha says ma Allah Allah Mohammed in Solaris Rama Aquila, teeny Fie Yeoman? Illa de Houma. Tamron. This is really interesting. I'm gonna you know, we should think about this. Because nowadays people always are talking about diets and things like that.
We should think about this. I'm not making any conclusive statements. I'm just saying we should think about it. She says, the family of the prophets I send them never ate in one single day, two meals.
Except that one of them was dates.
They never had two meals in the same day, except that one of those two meals was dates.
That's interesting. I'm learning these days about something called Learning not practicing. Okay.
As you can see,
something called intermittent fasting. Have you heard of this term?
Did you hear of this?
You've heard it into sisters. Did you guys hear of intermittent fasting? You heard about it. You didn't hear about it. So intermittent fasting is this thing. A lot of dietitians and doctors and whatnot are talking about it. They're saying that you
only eat once in a day. Or maybe not necessarily once a day, but one window of time in a day. So for example, the day has 24 hours. So you fasting for 20 hours and only four hours you eat.
You can drink water, you can drink coffee, whatever but solid food. You only have it once at one time in the day. There's different ways of doing it. Some say one meal, some say no, it can be more than one
meal, but it has to be within four hours. So for example, you don't eat anything all day when you wake up until 4pm.
Then you can eat from four to 8pm. After 8pm, you don't eat,
you want to drink water, drink water, but you don't eat anything until and then repeat is called intermittent fasting.
And actually, some people go for even longer periods of time.
I was listening to
some people that are practicing this and whatnot. And some of them they'll go for 48 hours, no solid meal, sometimes 72 hours, sometimes five or six days. No solid food. I was listening to a podcast of some people that are they do these kinds of dietary practices where their diet is mostly fat.
no carbs, no sugar, they eat fat.
and some protein. And then you know, some fruits, some vegetables, you know, some fiber, but no carbs, no sugar, right. And then once their body becomes adapted to burning fat for fuel, they can go on these long fasts. So I was listening to one guy, and he said, I've been fasting for three days.
Three days, I have not eaten any solid food, just drinking water, coffee, things like that, but no solid food.
And he said, and I rode my bike in a 50 kilometer bike ride
in that condition.
And so the one who was interviewing said, you don't get hungry. He said, Well, actually, I got a little bit hungry. But it wasn't hunger. It was my body was low on sodium. So I had some broth.
Just some broth, like meat broth or something like that it has salt, said I had one spoon of broth. And that's it. I felt full.
That's it. I don't need to eat. And this is happening now. Right now. Like this isn't like Four score and seven years ago? Or forefathers? No, no, this is happening right now. And this is actually considered an advancement. People are researching this. And now doctors are talking about it. And then there's like debate is this good? Is this not? And they're saying oh, this is good for your metabolism. This is good for your thinking, this is good for your sleep, all these things. You can completely turn around your diabetes, all these all these crazy things.
So when we hear these a Hadith of the Prophet, I said I'm let's bring it back home. Now, when we hear these headings of the prophets, I said him and his family and also habba going days and days without food.
Yes, maybe they experienced hunger. But you know what, these were strong people. And then we hear about the prophets. I said, I'm taking these long trips, and the Sahaba and Hitler and Jihad and different military expeditions like this. This was their diet, how were they able to achieve those kinds of feats that are physically demanding, their bodies are adapted, and the human body can do this. Our problem is we've adapted our body to constantly have the influx and that's not good May Allah
guide us and cure us from this disease of overeating This is a real problem. Hey, man, Guilty as charged. I'm sitting right here. I probably over ate like two times already today. May Allah subhana wa tada
grant us the character of harmless or solemn, but really, it's realistic. Because a lot of times you read these narrations and it seems outlandish, like how could that be? That's not possible. No, it is possible actually. People are doing it now. Actually, now it's considered smart. Mashallah live speaking of fasting, let's take a quick tangent. I just remember this right now is we're talking about intermittent fasting. So intermittent fasting, Mashallah good stuff. Now, there's like holy fests. Anybody that fasting? A Saturday is the 10th of
the 10th of Muhammad. We are right now in the month of Muhammad The Prophet said shahidullah Shahid along with the month of alarm, or headlamp. So this is a special month, one of the special months of the year, and the 10th day of this month is a day known as Ashura. The 10th of Mahatma and it is virtuous on this day to fast
right, so we're going to fast inshallah Saturday, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he saw some of burning Israelite at some of the Jews in Medina fasting on this day celebrating on this day fasting, he said, Why are you fasting on this day? They said, this is the day that Allah rescued
Musa and his people from Freetown and his army, so the prophets I said, I said Daniel Appleby, masa minko, we have more of a right to Musa
Then you and the Prophet fasted and he said, If I were to live to the next year I will fast.
a dancer when I should. I will fast the ninth and the 10th so fast on Friday and Saturday.
If you cannot fast on Friday, then fast Saturday and Sunday.
Agreed Sharla and there's a lot of virtue in fasting. But let's take it to another step. Yes.
Yes, you can do a lot of good charitable actions of worship and of service to others with a good intention, and that is praiseworthy inshallah.
But what is most special about that day is fasting and the reward in the virtue of having your sins expiated. The prophesized said that is forecasting on that day.
There's another thing as well.
So let's say you were to fast Friday and Saturday. Okay. And then you have Monday,
which the Prophet would fast on Mondays.
So you can fast on Monday. And then Monday and then Tuesday is what
if Saturday is the 10th of McCallum, then Tuesday is the
13th. Right. And then Wednesday will be
14 and Thursday will be 15, which are known as the three white days. A yam will be
if you fast three days from every month, the Popeyes lm said you get the reward as if you fasted the whole year.
Three days from every month,
especially the three white days, why are they called White days?
Why are they called White days? You should know this. It's related to the last question I asked you.
Full Moon. Yes, albedo. So especially these days, but if you're not able to fast those days, you can fast other three days as well. common question that comes from the sisters. Often they say well, the three white days of the month is coinciding with my monthly cycle and periods so I can't fast on those days. So we say you can fast other three days from the month and you still get that reward. Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in one narration he left it open he said three days from the month so some of the RMS said it can be any three days of the month or longer and but especially those middle three days, so what am I getting at here?
And everyone else so we fast Friday, Saturday, and then fast Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday, bam knock out the whole week and shut a lot of them this is a month at the prophets I send them love to fast in so who's with me on that?
Who's gonna commit with me inshallah fast Friday and Saturday and then just have pulled the rest of the week until Thursday? you down? You with me? Here with me with me inshallah. Sharla
it you're not with me in this one.
Can I get Friday and Saturday?
Come on, give me a Saturday.
Ladies, we're on board inshallah.
Okay, hamdulillah May Allah accept from all of you?
What kind of mean have you here so Allah Allah sent him if he would email me whom we gel as a team? Well, Mooji Allah said to him, Well, Cora Birmingham, where Adam would take a Buddha, Allah him. The prophet SAW, Selim also would sit with this segment of society, he would sit with them be in their presence in their company, be close to them, and he would not be arrogant in their presence. So a lot of times some people will say like, they may not say this with words, but they'll say it with their actions. I don't want to be in the presence of poor people or needy people or maybe people that have some kind of disheveled appearance. You don't want to be close to that it comes to them.
So and automatically a man will who I mean it's very time you're in La Casa de tiempo hace una bin Medina te what me akula hometown where am I? And Sarah whom Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Masjid was a man whom a terrible sofa for cara de su whom sob him
is recorded in the book of sunon la happy by mmm very healthy Earth man, a man and he is from the third generation. He is from advanced tabea in so his teachers were who and their teachers were Sahaba
He says, when the group of Mahajan increased in number in Medina, they had no home. They had nowhere to go. They had no one to take them in. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had them settle in the masjid. And he named them as have a sofa and he used to sit with them and keep them company. Well yeah, and so be him and he would cheer them up and he would be happy to be sitting with them. It's not like he's sitting with them and it's a chore, but he is happy to be in their presence. We have the hidden musasa Tesla to let him know Anissa will see her empty thoroughly amarilla heater Allah come upon, and in sitting with them is also obeying the command of Allah. Which command let's
look at so little gaff
in sola till calf, verse number 28, Allah subhana wa tada says, well, sweet enough Second Lady nyada Runa Uno.
De doon Elijah. What do I need?
to redo Xena tell hayati. dounia.
Man oh fella now
A move for oboe.
You have a translation on your phone? You have translation put on your phone. Okay, so telegraph 28 pull it up for us. Allah subhanaw taala in this verse begins by commanding the prophets on our SLM. So this is a command to Mohammed's or SLM. and by extension, his own.
By extension, we are under that command as well. A lot cannons the messenger Will Smith, be patient, have patience. necec. Hold yourself patient, hold yourself, man levena with those people which people
hold yourself, be patient in the presence of a certain group of people who are they, and living their own out of the home builder that he will or she you redo and the people that are calling upon their Lord and Master they're calling upon Allah, by morning and by evening seeking the pleasure of Allah seeking the face of Allah seeking the pleasure and the ultimate reward of Allah subhanaw taala.
So who are these people?
man whom Who are these people?
Well, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they are that group of Sahaba.
So Mr. Mr. Eddie, one of the scholars have seen who lived not too long ago Rahim Allah He says, Yeah, Moodle, Thailand, Abuja whoa Mohammed Osama herself.
And your spiel on epsa. Whom I mean in a bad alimony been
a lot of commands His messenger to be patient and be in the presence of the servants of Allah that are worshipers devoted sincere worshipers of Allah.
Oh, what a no hurry, what are the ones that are worshiping a lot by morning and by evening?
Who do when when
you read una vida nicolaj holla? Why are they doing this worship, it's not to be praised. Or to be considered amongst a certain category of people. No, it is seeking reward from Allah. Meaning is lost meaning they have sincerity.
philosopher humble anybody with a class. So they have two characteristics, which is devotion and worship and sincerity. Those two combined
and they need to both be present. If there is one and not the other. That's a problem. So somebody could be very sincere. But if there is no worship, if there's no obedience to Allah, then
thank you for being sincere.
I'm going to go anywhere.
When you see some action, and you can be doing worship and without sincerity, then that's a problem.
people that do actions on the outside, but inwardly it's not seeking pleasure from Allah. It's not seeking reward.
Seeking the pleasure of Allah seeking reward from Allah, it's seeking reward from elsewhere. So that's a problem too. So Allah gave them these two characteristics very bad and floss, worship and sincerity both
what I do at NACA and whom Allah says, The Man Who said he says hello to Joe is what led to Joe is home bustle Aqua total fair and home Nova like a lot. Allah says, keep your sight on them, which means stick with them be in their presence. It's not a one time command. Like oh, go hang out with them. One time.
Then Mr. McCullough sets it, no be in their presence continuously in their presence. What I try to do it not going home, don't look elsewhere. Don't seek another
group of companions, another group to be in the present. This is the best possible group of people. You could be in the presence of
what are tied to a NACA and whom to reduce Xena tell highlighted dounia
seeking some of the adornment, some of the pleasures, some of the beauties, some of the luxuries of this worldly life, because they don't have that this group of people, they don't have that what do they have from the luxuries of this life?
That's why they're living in the masjid Hello sofa, they don't have anywhere to go. They had somewhere else to go, they would go there. They have no food, they have no belongings, no wealth, nothing. A few weeks ago, he shared the story of sleep, when he gave up all his savings so that he would be allowed to go make kijima Yeah, and he buried it under the ground is gold.
So they gave up everything.
So you might look elsewhere, O Messenger of Allah. Because elsewhere, other groups of people might have those luxuries and adornments and wealth. But you don't need that. You need the presence of these righteous companions.
What I took from an elephant in a puddle by who and the cleaner
and don't follow and don't obey and don't get pulled by those. Allah Subhana Allah says Earth under any law, they have roughly they've fallen into a state of heedlessness forgotten about Vicar of Allah remembrance of Allah. They're doing Vicar of other stuff. They could have their desires they could have their
wealth whatever it is, but it's not they could have a lot
of fun. Nepal, Burundi, Kenya, their hearts fell into a state of heedlessness for Alibaba who BNF Farah who NDK these people fell into heedlessness from Allah. So part of their punishment was Allah subhanaw taala caused them to continue to forget the vicar of Allah. that very thing that they chose to fall into, that became their punishment and their curse.
which adds a lot of meaning to when salted hash when Allah Subhana Allah says, what are the punakha livina Natural Law have answer home and foster home? Don't be like those people that forgot about a law so law cause them to forget about themselves.
In another verse, what about Whoa, whoa, continuing in this verse 28 cuff. And so what ended up happening forgot about a lot. So a lot caused him to forget about his ticket. So whatever. So the only thing left for them to do is remember their desires. So they followed their hella, they followed their desires, their whims.
What kind of emeral who and the final end result of that deadly combination? The airfares ended up furel ba a lot more out
there affairs ended up going in loss last
no and void messed up
for her that but then a whole lot more and party in the party who drew eternity that B he will enter hola drew Illa Lima Hua moto sofubi so these are the group of people that a lot told his messenger don't hang around them. So in this verse, Allah Gemma Allah combined between who to be in the presence of and who not to be in the presence of because if you're in the presence of the ladder, and you do apply you obey them, you will end up taking them as role models, you will follow them then you will end up being like them. That's how it works. You can't be around a certain type of people and following them except that you end up like them.
So not to laugh, you're healthy. That's how lucky this is human beings, those that you surround yourself with and follow. You will end up being like them. So we got to be careful.
In another verse, Allah Subhana Allah says what I tell todo de La Nina droon Allah humble avati Rashi you read up to an hour john Murray came in he said the human shaking woman and he said we carry him you shake. Law says don't kick them away. Law toto don't push them away.
Don't kick them away. They are worshipping Allah by morning and by evening. A la Totoro danka when mogera acetic
Laos, alphabet 10 Fimo generosity at him. Mineral moolah Ximena. He tried to be him.

in exchange for being in the presence of others, and when the prophesizing and did do that, Allah subhana wa
when the Prophet salallahu ad was a letter in exchange for others, Allah subhana wa tada corrected him in the Quran.
