Sir Mr Ajay Kumar

00:00:29--> 00:00:30


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

when they go

00:00:41--> 00:00:42


00:00:56--> 00:00:59

please no bus we will do without

00:01:02--> 00:01:13

smilla Mandela Haman hamdulillah alameen wa Salatu was Salam right embrace them you know it he was lucky to be here Jemaine long phone our friend Mr. Lipton, I was eating a

00:01:15--> 00:01:19

lot of Manero becoming an admin layer for him. He called me lakeisha.

00:01:21--> 00:01:25

Marissa Ella Machado Salah. Well integer honey that she talks

00:01:28--> 00:01:29


00:01:30--> 00:01:42

So we are beginning tonight in Charlotte, North Carolina, a new topic be the law we asked a lot for sincerity and success. And the topic, as you have heard is a Shema in

00:01:44--> 00:01:50

which is the study of the description of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So first and foremost, welcome

00:01:51--> 00:02:06

to this gathering, there are some familiar faces and some new ones. May Allah subhanaw taala reward you all for coming and make this a gathering that is beneficial for us, and will elevate our rank and status and increase us in beneficial knowledge.

00:02:10--> 00:02:21

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is an important figure it individual for us in our lives. I think that's a important starting point that we all agree upon.

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

And if you are here for Jim Mora,

00:02:26--> 00:02:42

if you're here for the Altima, we tried to spend a few moments to talk about why it is important, why it is important to be attached to the messenger sallallahu wasallam. And to love him and he is Salatu was Salam.

00:02:43--> 00:02:54

So we don't want to spend too much time on those details. You can check out the ultimate or the plethora of other lessons that outline that.

00:02:55--> 00:02:57

But the idea is part of growing

00:02:59--> 00:03:04

in our love and attachment for the profits of wired or send them is to be familiar

00:03:05--> 00:03:10

with him and aware of his life and his

00:03:11--> 00:03:19

times his comings and his goings and his dealings and everything that had to do with him. Are they sold out to a setup?

00:03:20--> 00:03:33

That's how you increase in love. That's how you increase in appreciation. The more you know about someone, the more you have, the more context you have to grow in your attachment to that individual.

00:03:34--> 00:03:41

I'm in the process of studying the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there are a few different ways to do so.

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

We often hear the word Ceylon.

00:03:45--> 00:03:48

anybody hear the word sila before?

00:03:50--> 00:03:50

What does it mean?

00:03:52--> 00:03:52


00:03:54--> 00:04:03

Okay, it's often used to refer to the life of the Prophet size and then but it generally refers to a biography or it refers to how a person lived their life.

00:04:05--> 00:04:10

Most books have CLR and most classes

00:04:11--> 00:04:27

have the biography of the prophet SAW Selim, or chronological in nature and event based chronological in nature and based on events that took place during his lifetime that he was involved in.

00:04:29--> 00:04:34

So has anybody here been to a CLR class or read a book of CLR

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

Okay, Mashallah, I think that's more than 50% of the hands. That's really good. So it will usually begin before the even the birth of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And talk about the lineage and the family and the events that led up to his birth out of his salatu salam, then it will go through his childhood and what we know of the events that took place then and early adulthood.

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

All of this is before he is a messenger. This is when he is Mohammed Abdullah, a member of the Macan koresh community, then there is revelation,

00:05:11--> 00:05:31

there is discussion of his relationships of his marriage to Khadija of his relationship with his mother who passed away at a particular age of his grandmother of his uncle of his other uncle's paternal mainly in that period of time in his life, etc, all the way up until his death early his Salatu was Salam.

00:05:32--> 00:05:41

So that's usually how books of sila and classes of sila that's usually the pattern that they go through. And that's one way of learning about his life.

00:05:42--> 00:05:48

There is another which was very common classically, it's not as common

00:05:50--> 00:05:55

today outside of the discussions of CLR, but classically, the scholars did

00:05:56--> 00:06:23

give writings specific to the aspect of his life that were involved in military expeditions and battles and encounters on the battlefield. They called it lm Ozzy. This was one section of study within within Ceylon. And that's because there were a lot of events. And so you see the prophets I sent him as a leader of a state and as a strategist and dealings with other groups and other

00:06:24--> 00:06:37

factions that weren't necessarily that were that were showing animosity to the Muslim community and how the Prophet handled those situations. So nowadays, you'll find most of those within contained within the discussions of SIOP.

00:06:40--> 00:06:56

In addition to all of that, there is another method of learning about the Prophet slice and and not to say that it is better or it should be done, other than studying the clo, but it's complimentary is what is referred to as Shama.

00:06:57--> 00:07:00

It is what is referred to as a Shama

00:07:03--> 00:07:11

Shama, and what does it mean in Arabic? Well, literally in Arabic, it is plural for a shaman, which means what?

00:07:13--> 00:07:21

left, you know, you have your right hand and the mean, and you have your left hand as she met. And so the plural of left is Shama.

00:07:23--> 00:07:28

Technically, that's just a very literal linguistic meaning of the word.

00:07:29--> 00:07:32

Just FYI, for your information.

00:07:34--> 00:07:39

Technically, its usage refers to Oberon insan, saggi, utterly insane,

00:07:40--> 00:08:23

a person's demeanor, persons, how they carried themselves, it tells you some descriptive details about how the person appeared. If you were to look upon this person, now you can study someone's biography, right? You can study someone's biography, and you know, the events of their life, right, and dealings and interactions. And someone comes and tells you draw a picture of this person. Now you're gonna get into No, we're not talking about drawing a picture of myself. So I send them everybody just calm down, just saying theoretically, someone else. And you would draw a picture of that person, and it would be completely different than what it is in reality. But the idea of Shama

00:08:23--> 00:08:28

is for you to have an image of the prophet SAW Selim, in your mind.

00:08:29--> 00:08:37

And can you do that? All of a sudden, the room got into Punjab, silence, right? Because when you start talking about images of prophecy, I said them, then everybody gets really sensitive.

00:08:40--> 00:09:15

Some obvious reasons and some reasons I've yet to understand why. Yes, of course, you can. Most definitely. Any, do you think they'll have I never looked at the boss I said, I've ever some of them. Actually, by the way. On that note, take a quick tangent. Some of them were in such are of the prophets I send them that they didn't use to stare directly at him. Actually. On that note, by the way, yes, some of us I have I did used to do that. But that's a habit I saw the Prophet says I'm they looked at him. And we have a plethora of narrations that describe to us how he looked.

00:09:17--> 00:09:48

Hearing about someone is not the same as seeing them. Right? I mean, it's very obvious. Now Allah Subhana Allah decreed that we happen to live at a particular time and place where we are not in physical contact with the Prophet sighs Allah. We don't see the prophets I said and physically in his image, is that a problem necessarily? No, it's not a problem, a lot decreed and decided for us to be living at this time, and that's for a good reason and wisdom and purpose. It's our job to make the best of it.

00:09:49--> 00:09:57

Now he was a man and I was able Vina poet said we like to criticize the times that we live in, but we are really the what should be criticized.

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

So the

00:10:00--> 00:10:24

idea of Shema in this topic of study here is to understand the description of the prophesies I'm not only physical description By the way, but even things like for example so the different chapters that we will explore in this particular book and I'll get to what the book is inshallah and why it's important. But you have for example, the the, the officer said, I'm have any accessories or jewelry?

00:10:26--> 00:10:28

clothing, a ring.

00:10:30--> 00:10:34

Did he have a footwear head to air? hair?

00:10:35--> 00:10:46

The prophet SAW Selim, what kind of hair was it? How did he walk? How did he talk? How did he sit down? How did he lay down? How did he sleep?

00:10:48--> 00:10:49

How did he eat?

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

How did he How did he?

00:10:55--> 00:10:56

How did he cry?

00:10:57--> 00:11:00

How did the Prophet cry? How did he laugh?

00:11:01--> 00:11:06

How did he look when he got angry? How did he express anger? Did he ever get angry?

00:11:08--> 00:11:24

How was that expressed? I know how I am when I get angry? It is not a pretty sight? no prophet ever get angry? How did that look? Right? So all of these are his food? What did he eat? What did he like to eat? What was how did he like to prepare his food?

00:11:25--> 00:11:49

Things like that. Right? These are not questions that you're gonna get answered, necessarily, generally speaking from a traditional study of Ceylon, that's why the other map had this extra category of publication and this extra category of research and compiler ation, called a Shema and, and really add,

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

some of it is

00:11:53--> 00:11:58

descriptive, while all of it is descriptive, and some of it is prescriptive.

00:12:00--> 00:12:12

Does that make sense? So all of it is descriptive to describe how the prophet SAW Selim was. Now some of that description is prescriptive meaning some of it is what we would actually implement.

00:12:13--> 00:12:54

Other aspects of it are not necessarily mandatory to implement, but it gives us context. It gives us an understanding of how he lived on a day to day basis. So for exam, I'll give you an example of the descriptive prescriptive, the roadmap, they talk about clothing, the dress, that's one of the things we're going to talk about, how did the prophet SAW sent him dress? How was his clothing? Now, when we come upon that that's descriptive in nature it's describing, but it isn't descriptive only and then stop, or is it also prescriptive, meaning I should dress the same way the prophets I send them dressed.

00:12:57--> 00:13:11

So that's something that we will get into. So there's a lot of tangential and tertiary questions that rise up, when you learn and you discuss the description of the prophet SAW Selim jelajah, these are things we will aim to, to,

00:13:12--> 00:13:22

to delve into inshallah husana charlotta. But really, the purpose of it is to have a better understanding of who he was and how he was.

00:13:24--> 00:14:04

It's okay to have an imagination. I created you with one, I hope. And shortly after that you leave hearing this discussion, and you are able to conjure an image of the prophets, I send them for yourself, I hope you are able to do so that would be a nice thing to do. And especially when it comes to children, any of you here our parents, it's really hard to teach a child to love someone, and then they can't have an image of them. As human beings, we are visual in nature. There's nothing wrong with that. Now, yes. Is there discussion about the permissibility? And the respect of drawing images of populism? Yes, absolutely. That's something that is abstained from, but I'm talking

00:14:04--> 00:14:29

internally, you and me in your mind and your imagination. When you think of the prophets I send them you should be able to think of some of these characteristics they should come to mind. And what's that going to do? It will naturally allow you to have more love. Naturally, just just by knowing it, you're going to increase in your love. And when you increase in your love, you will increase in your obedience in your

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

following of

00:14:33--> 00:14:42

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in your attempt to emulate and practice his his character. So that's what a Shema is.

00:14:43--> 00:14:45

The book that we are

00:14:47--> 00:14:54

using mostly as a guide is a Shema l mohammedia. by Amanda tirmidhi.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

By Imam autonomy now, this is not the only book of this nature.

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

Nor was it the first. Some scholars mentioned that the teacher of the teacher of multimedia was one of the earliest to publish a book of this nature will allow them and then not all manuscripts have made it to publication. A lot of times we know about a book in Islamic history that was written, but we don't have the actual book with us anymore, yet. And then sometimes new manuscripts are discovered, voila, who Adam, imitating me the is the famous scholar of Hanif that we often hear referred to when we talk about the famous six books of Hadeeth sunon autonomy, the origin near Jameer Timothy, so he is also the compiler of that Hadeeth collection as well. This is different.

00:15:44--> 00:16:18

Some of the Hadith here in this book are also included in his volume, his text of john Merrick Timothy, but not all of them. And sometimes the text or the meaning of the Hadith is similar, but the specific narration is not present in his book, Jamie oted. Me, his name was Edward, he said Mohammed diviner Isa, at Timothy, actually, his lineage was much longer, but we don't want to get too academic on you because you might fall asleep. So his name was aboard he said Mohammed Idris didn't MIDI and he died approximately in 297.

00:16:20--> 00:16:24

of the hijiri calendar, so relatively early, relatively early

00:16:26--> 00:16:33

in the in the timeline of Islamic scholarship, so he published this book is Shema in mohammedia shama in an abuse of a lot of Selim.

00:16:34--> 00:16:40

There are others that came after him as well that were really awesome. There is there is

00:16:41--> 00:16:43

of the later scholars

00:16:45--> 00:16:46

called Lee up

00:16:47--> 00:16:49

called al who was

00:16:50--> 00:17:07

who was from present day Morocco and he was a great great heavyweight Maliki jurist and, and he had a very famous texts called Shiva, Shiva fita Devi cuckoo Mustafa, and this is also one of the most popular texts of this,

00:17:08--> 00:17:42

of this nature and he also goes into more detail than he did me the text and he talks about the rights of the Prophet slicin upon us in addition to descriptive narrations, it will Josie also has a similar alpha fee, vocal Mustapha it cetera so there are several others. This one happens to be one of the most popular because of its concise nature. It's not very long, it's relatively concise and abridged and you know, Allah subhanaw taala decreed that this text gets a lot of acceptance.

00:17:44--> 00:17:47

Throughout the circles of study,

00:17:48--> 00:17:50

Imam autonomy he was

00:17:51--> 00:18:01

one of the heavyweight giant scholars of Islam not only in Hadith, but at the area when when he lived in Hadith was the main method of learning.

00:18:02--> 00:18:06

Knowledge and and learning the tenants of the religion.

00:18:07--> 00:18:58

And he was someone who worked very hard. In his in his study of how do you there's a there's a famous story. In those days, the scholars were very serious, very diligent, upon learning Hadith, and they committed the knowledge that they heard to memory, in what would seem to us today as quite miraculous. So there's a funny relative kind of the story that happened with one of his teachers that he went to one of the prominent teachers to learn and, and his teacher recited to him several Hadith more than a dozen, and he had some notes that he was writing the Hadith. Now, somehow he ended up losing those papers. So when he came to the next lesson, the teacher wanted to quiz him and

00:18:58--> 00:19:38

test him on what he had related in the previous gathering, but he didn't have those papers. Now, he didn't want to embarrass himself and seemed like he was not serious. So he just picked up some papers in front of him. And he you know, made it seem that he was reviewing the ad that he had wrote shortly thereafter the teacher noticed and said, Man, those pages are blank. What kind of you you making a fool of me as me You're Are you taking your studies Seriously? So he said, you know, please just slow down with me. It's not that I am not taking it seriously. But anyways, I don't need that papers because I memorize every single penny that you told me. And the teacher did not believe that.

00:19:38--> 00:20:00

So he told him I don't believe I don't think you're you're so he wants to test them. He said recite back to me every single detail your mama told me the narrated back to him every single How do you word for word is he had heard it from him. So when we talk about these early scholars of Islam in those generations, that were very diligent, especially in that era with the knowledge of learning and compiling

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

Heidi, the narrations of the Prophet sighs them. I mean, they were serious. They were very, very serious in their endeavors and he traveled far and wide. And he had, he studied with the most prominent scholars at his time and some of his students were some of the most prominent

00:20:17--> 00:20:40

students of that time as well. I got the opportunity to go through this text more than once with with different teachers in Medina Hamdulillah, and it was a beneficial and enjoyable experience. So inshallah Tada, let's begin with the first chapter of the text. Any questions before we move on?

00:20:41--> 00:20:42


00:20:43--> 00:20:56

That's a great question. Does anybody know the answer to that question? I was thinking that as I was coming here, like I know someone's gonna ask me that. And I don't know the answer to it. I'm not very well versed with English.

00:20:58--> 00:21:16

Oh, the question was, is the book translated is Shama intimately translated in English? It is what he is saying Yes. Is it a good translation? Because sometimes no translation is better than a bad one sometimes. So the brothers saying it is inshallah Tata, we'll do a quick search at the end of the lesson.

00:21:17--> 00:21:26

The internet is really close to our fingertips. So we'll do a quick search at the end of the lesson inshallah and inform you. If it is and if it is, you can you can pick it up, I'd recommend that

00:21:28--> 00:21:33

that's a good question. Today is actually a place in

00:21:35--> 00:21:38

he was born in a city, which is

00:21:40--> 00:21:45

that's the name of the city is Tim is or Tim was present day.

00:21:47--> 00:21:54

Uzbekistan. In those days, they refer to that region as or even till now there for that region is bahala.

00:21:55--> 00:22:06

Bukhara Hmm, Buhari Miss Bethany Ruffalo is actually from that close to that region as well, not the same Township. Somebody showed me a map one time a few years ago,

00:22:07--> 00:22:29

with the most notable and famous scholars of Hadith, like Jambo Heidi, Muslim, to me, the would I would suggest standing CGC right, Timothy and nessa he write some of these famous scholars delicately. So someone showed me a map and there's a, there was a big concentration of the scholars in that region

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

in the region of Uzbekistan.

00:22:34--> 00:22:42

And even what is present day Iran, even what is present in Iran, some of the some of the biggest scholars

00:22:43--> 00:22:47

of Hanif came from from those those regions, so they were not out up.

00:22:48--> 00:22:55

That's an interesting point. They were not of our ethnicity. As a matter of fact, some of the greatest scholars of Islam and of the Arabic language.

00:22:57--> 00:22:57

We're not

00:22:58--> 00:23:01

we're not of Arab ethnicity.

00:23:03--> 00:23:25

There's a funny story about the the famous, the most notable scholar of Arabic language or someone known as C, by the way, you guys heard this name before CBOE he, he was known as, you know, the prince of the scholars of Arabic language. There's a funny story a lot more than what the authenticity of it is. One of our teachers of grammar was sharing that

00:23:26--> 00:23:34

an Arab Bedouin man was told about see, by the way, now, nowadays, Arab Edwin's are,

00:23:37--> 00:24:14

they have their own sort of iterations of Arabic language. In those days, that's where the classical Arabic was preserved. So so he was someone who prided himself on his command of the classical Arabic language and of eloquence in it. And when someone told him that there is someone, the most knowledgeable man in the land of Arabic is actually this Persian man. See, by the way, this is a Persian name. You know, he was furious and he said, I am going to go and find him. So he went to Iraq ceiba, who was in present day iraq at that time, and he went to him and the story says, oh, Adam, the story says that he went to his home

00:24:16--> 00:24:20

to the place where he resided and and he knocked on the door. And

00:24:22--> 00:24:24

the basically the

00:24:25--> 00:24:27

housemaid or the

00:24:28--> 00:24:36

nanny of the house, basically is the one that responded and so he asked her you know, as a rookie, where's where's your boss? where's where's the man of the house? And so she said to him,

00:24:42--> 00:25:00

Do you understand that mean either, and he she constructed an entire sentence of his whereabouts, all of them derivatives of the same root word. Like it's like next level like, like, it would it would make Shakespeare look very silly, like on that level. And so he was dumbfounded.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

And he said he kind of had a Jedi.

00:25:04--> 00:25:16

Master, I'm done. If this is if this is how the house made, if this is how eloquent she is, you know, then I don't even want to meet her boss. So he left, you know he left. So

00:25:17--> 00:25:20

inshallah, at the end of the lesson I will tell you in sha Allah China.

00:25:21--> 00:25:34

But the idea is what's the point behind all of this is some of the most notable scholars of this religion of this language are not people that were of Arab ethnicity. So the next time somebody tells you Islam is a big, a red party.

00:25:36--> 00:25:53

You can tell them about him admittedly. But let's begin shall Lacerda without him de la salatu salam ala rasulillah perfeito Abu Hassan Mohammed Vanessa Musa waratah to me the Babu magic if he helped the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam aborto japa Teva to Vanessa and medic give me anissina mobo

00:28:34--> 00:28:47

this first chapter has about 14 narrations. We won't go through every single one of them. But they all revolve around the physical description of the Prophet Cyrus and

00:28:48--> 00:28:58

they all revolve around the physical description of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The first Earth is recorded is reported to us by ns and subdue Malik he says

00:28:59--> 00:29:03

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was neither extremely tall.

00:29:04--> 00:29:06

nor was he extremely short.

00:29:10--> 00:29:40

In complexion he was neither pure white nor very dark, nor Brown, which results in darkness he was radiant illuminant more luminous than even the full moon. On the 14th night in the middle of the month. The hair of also lions SLM was neither very straight nor very curly but slightly wavy. When he attained the age of 40. Allah the Almighty granted him Prophethood he lived for 10 years in Mecca and Medina for 10 years. At that time, there was not more than 20 white strands of hair on his on his head.

00:29:41--> 00:29:44

You might have heard a couple of numbers there that you

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

are confused about we will comment on I just wanted to translate the narrations on his blessing head and beard. The second narration we read also reported by NSF idiomatic says also law was of a medium stature he was neither very tall nor very short. He was very handsome.

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

Medium building his hair was neither very curly nor very straight, but was slightly wavy. He had a weak colored brown complexion when he walked he leaned forward slightly.

00:30:11--> 00:30:13

We read a narration of Barack Obama,

00:30:15--> 00:30:25

where he described the prophecy I said I'm wearing a red cloak. He says, I have never seen anything more beautiful than than him before.

00:30:26--> 00:30:34

And then the last narration that we read, which is a bit lengthy, you will see that some of the details are repeated, and that's why we won't go through every single narration. But

00:30:36--> 00:31:12

Alibaba pilot when he was asked about the description of the prophets, I said, I'm used to sailor sola was neither very tall nor short but of medium stature among people. His hair was neither very curly nor very street but had a slight wave in it. He did not have a big body nor around face but his blessitt face was slightly round. The complexion of the solar system was white with redness in it, the blessing eyes of them were extremely dark and black. His eyelashes were long to the joints of the body, and elbows and knees were large. Likewise, the portion between the two shoulders was broad and fully fleshed, there was no hair on his body except for a thin line running from the

00:31:12--> 00:31:47

chest. He had hair on his chest and there was a thin line running from the chest down to the navel. The hands and feet of Russell Lyons Isilon were fully fleshed. When he walked he lifted his legs with vigor as if he were descending from a higher elevation to a lower one. When he addressed an individual he turned his whole body towards that person. The seal of prophethood was situated between his shoulder blades. He was the last of all prophets, he was the most generous, and the most truthful, he was the most kind hearted and came from the most noble of families, anyone who came into close contact with him, and knew his excellent character was smitten with the love of his

00:31:47--> 00:31:57

excellent attributes. Anyone who described his noble features can only say I have not seen anyone like at all sort of like insularis lm neither before nor after him.

00:32:01--> 00:32:14

So these first narrations and this first chapter, described to us the physical characteristics of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam let's break them down in sections skin, complexion, in the Hadith,

00:32:15--> 00:32:17

it says, laser

00:32:19--> 00:32:25

will abbia will m hug, while I bill Adam. This will be available when I when Adam

00:32:28--> 00:32:30

and M have a shady deal by

00:32:31--> 00:32:47

them a smell of coffee. So what the prophet was described as not being very white, nor was he very dark, but he was his skin complexion was moderate in between those two

00:32:48--> 00:32:49

in between those two

00:32:51--> 00:32:57

it's interesting that the prophet SAW Selim uses this, or the the narration describing the process of them says he was not add them.

00:32:59--> 00:33:14

He was not add them. Now, maybe we heard this to mean the name of someone, a name of a prophet. But linguistically in Arabic, Adam means Eskimo meaning someone of dark complexion, someone of dark complexion. Now what's interesting is

00:33:16--> 00:33:32

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam described Moosa with this word. The ropes are seldom described Mr. Mrs. Khanna them, that he was of this dark complexion. But the prophet SAW him his complexion was moderate in between the two, he wasn't very

00:33:33--> 00:33:40

white, nor was he dark and complexion, but a brown sort of color. between the two.

00:33:41--> 00:34:09

We also see in some of the other narrations described that certain parts of his body had, on certain parts of the skin, there was some redness, there was some redness, you know, sometimes you see someone, they have a little bit of redness, for example, in their cheeks, or, or maybe certain body parts, there's a little bit of redness. It wasn't extreme, it wasn't the dominant color of his complexion, but it was noticeable, it was noticeable in his in his skin.

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

So his is on the spectrum, on the spectrum of really light and really dark. The prophets I sent him was in between a little bit closer to the lighter side, a little bit closer on the spectrum, you know, to the lighter side with a reddish tinge in certain in certain places and this is common amongst many people that are of our ethnicity. today.

00:34:37--> 00:34:41

There is also something you will hear a lot is

00:34:42--> 00:34:58

radiance, brightness, right? illuminated. What does that mean? Now some have understood it literally to mean that light is literally glowing from the skin of the Prophet. So I sent him Allah who commented on that said that's not the case.

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

That wasn't the case, the prophet had many miracles, not to say that it's not something plausible. The Prophet had many more entries after many miracles. But this particular description of radiance,

00:35:12--> 00:35:47

the aroma described it as when you would see a part of this skin, but didn't have any hair on it, it would be very apparent there would be, the more appropriate word would there would be brightness to it. And brightness has nothing to do with the spectrum of skin color. There is a difference between the two. Somebody could be on the far end of the spectrum of dark skin color, but there is a brightness to their complexion to their skin. You guys know what I'm talking about? You ever seen someone I'll never forget there was this old man

00:35:49--> 00:36:07

who sits in the profits msgid you know, if he's still alive, I'm pretty sure if you go there, you'll find him every time I went, he was sitting there. I'll tell you exactly where so if you want to go find him you can find him. It's usually between mother and Asia. Right when you exit the masjid from the south eastern most door

00:36:08--> 00:36:13

which is called Bab Bilal you exit from Babylon. And

00:36:15--> 00:36:33

and the profits house will be on your right hand side. They will be Baboo Nisa, then after that is Babel gibreel. And after that is babble about here. And that's where people exit from after they give set up to the prophets, I send them in between that on the right hand side on the floor. There's always a group of very elderly Ethiopian men that sit there.

00:36:35--> 00:36:52

Now at nighttime, they clear everyone out and they put some tape for traffic flow and whatnot. But if you go there during a lot of times, they are usually that's their spot. And they usually do a lot over there. And there's one guy in particular, every time I passed that place at that time, I saw him sitting there.

00:36:53--> 00:36:57

And his skin complexion is extremely dark,

00:36:58--> 00:36:59

very dark.

00:37:01--> 00:37:39

But there is a radiance, there's a brightness to his to his complexion. It's like glowing, but it's not physically glowing. It's hard to describe. It's hard to describe, but it's glowing. So the prophet SAW I said I'm had that kind of glow to his skin complexion. So when you read those narrations, it's not don't understand it literally to mean that there was actually physical streams of light that were emanating not to take away from some of his other miracles that were more miraculous than, than if this were to have been the case. But the description here is a glow, or a brightness, even though he was not very white or pale in his skin color.

00:37:41--> 00:37:48

How about how did it feel? How did it feel? It was very smooth, and very soft.

00:37:49--> 00:38:17

Some of the one of this habit described that when he shook the Prophet, so I sent him his hand that it was softer than silk. So there was a softness, I remember one time we were working out in the in the gym, and you know, when you when you lift the bar, your hands get kind of rough. And so I was like, Man, you know, so it bothered me. And so the brother was like, Nah, this is a mark of manhood. So no it isn't because the prophets I sent him His hands were very soft. So

00:38:18--> 00:38:31

wearing my gloves next time get off for me back up. No, I'm joking. There's there's nothing wrong with with working with your hands and having some but the post I said I'm just so you know, descriptive is the profit. So I said I'm had

00:38:34--> 00:38:37

a very smooth and soft feeling to his to his skin.

00:38:41--> 00:38:53

How about stature and height? So the first thing that is mentioned in the narration is laser beam pavilion back in what I will pass, the prophet SAW Selim was not very tall.

00:38:54--> 00:39:38

nor was he someone described as short. No Is he described as someone short and bad in elementary school. Somebody who's very tall, you know, sometimes, if you look at a group of people, it's like, you know, heads are like this, like, someone's like, all the way up there. You know, so this person is really taught like, for example, if a if a basketball athlete came amongst us right now, they would tower over us. Right? They would tell tower over us. So that's like, really tall. So the prophecy I sent him was not he didn't his his height was not one that towered over others. It was a moderate height, but also he was not short. So when you look at those, sometimes it's like a space

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

and you're like whoa, and then someone is very short.

00:39:42--> 00:39:59

is being one or the other inherently good or bad. No, no, this is prescriptive. This is something you have no control over your skin complexion, your height, maybe softness, you can do something about that. Maybe but your skin complexion, your height.

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

There's nothing you can do about that. Well, I think back, some people have done some things about that. But that's

00:40:09--> 00:40:10


00:40:11--> 00:40:36

And not something we would encourage. But the idea is, this is something this is how Allah created you. Right? So there is nothing inherently right or wrong. There were some of the habits, some of the competitive policies that were very tall. Some of the NBA were very Moosa, we talked about mousse earlier, cannot be while and the rest of them described him and said Moosa was very tall. Moosa was very tall, Adam, and he said, I'm the Hadith of the Prophet, I said, I was described as being very tall.

00:40:37--> 00:40:55

And there were some of those that were very short as well and stout in stature. So neither of the two is is inherently good or bad. This is prescriptive, this is f1, descriptive, to get an idea of how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam stood, and what was his stature like?

00:40:58--> 00:41:01

What was interesting about the height of the props I sent him, though,

00:41:02--> 00:41:07

when you put it in context, there are some people when you look at them.

00:41:10--> 00:41:51

As individuals, they themselves, they look closer to the tall side of the spectrum. But once they are in a group of people, you don't necessarily notice that they are so tall, they kind of blend in, even though they might be taller than the others, but it doesn't stick out. And this is how their prophesizing was described. Neither extremely tall nor short, moderate in between. But what was interesting is when he was within a gathering, he was not noticed, you know, to to tower over anyone in the gathering, nor would he be seen as shorter than others in the gathering.

00:41:53--> 00:41:55

And somehow, this is something that

00:41:57--> 00:41:58

personality does

00:41:59--> 00:42:04

play a role in your perception of someone sighs There's a famous scholar.

00:42:06--> 00:42:26

Well, I'll tell you, who is Sheldon hammer, the famous Mauritanian scholar. Now, I've been watching lectures and videos of this guy for years, right. And it always appeared to me in videos, that he was kind of taller, on the taller side.

00:42:27--> 00:42:41

And I had seen him standing like in football or sitting down and this and that. So finally, in Medina, one time, he came to a neighboring University, and he gave a lecture there, so we were really excited. So we go. And when he walked in, I'm like, man,

00:42:42--> 00:42:43

he's shorter than I thought.

00:42:45--> 00:43:23

You know, like, I wasn't expecting that, you know. So sometimes, the way a person carries themselves the way they speak, it can kind of impact your perception of their their height. And so then when you see them, you're like, oh, they're taller than I thought or they're shorter than I thought. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was when he stood next to tall people, he wouldn't seem short. If he stood next to someone who was taller than him It didn't make him look short. When he stood next to people that were shorter than him if he wasn't towering over them he wouldn't seem extremely tall. That's in terms of height. So skin complexion height we also have in the Hadith

00:43:23--> 00:43:28

mentioned of the Prophet so I said I'm stature. So hi, how about with

00:43:29--> 00:43:39

how was the Prophet size and I'm stature again, it was also moderate moderate and here's something that we do have some level of

00:43:41--> 00:43:46

it you know, our choices can have some level of impact on this one.

00:43:47--> 00:43:50

his stature and he has a lot to us that um, he was well built.

00:43:53--> 00:44:39

He wasn't huge like he didn't you know, he wasn't really big. I was sitting earlier today after Jumeirah with a with a brother. And he was describing someone to me that he met in the course of his work as a doctor and he said he was I was sitting next to someone he said it was the two of you put together a smile and that's like intense, you know, so so the offseason wasn't huge in stature and width of a medium built, build. But we we hear a few different places over here that describe his limbs and his joints as being thick and full, like meaty, you know, you know how they say MIDI like a flesh, so it wasn't skinny or thin, but he was not fat. Actually there is description of the

00:44:39--> 00:44:41

prophets of Allah where it was the limbs

00:44:43--> 00:44:48

abdomen as well that his abdomen was in line with his chest.

00:44:51--> 00:44:52

which is

00:44:54--> 00:44:55

which is different

00:44:56--> 00:44:57

than a lot of us

00:45:02--> 00:45:46

It's better. Now this to comment on this, this is something that you know, that we can have an impact on. Now the prophets, like I said, lamb always tried to be moderate in his movements in his eating in his. And and if he wanted to, he could have eaten to the point of getting a belly, but he didn't. Like, let's just be Can we just be very blunt with each other? Because we all not all of us some of you martial art great, but it's kind of hypocritical for me to say these things, but let's just kind of be gentle with one another, that he could have eaten at many points in time in his life to develop a gut a belly, but he didn't he held back so there was moderation there. So this is

00:45:46--> 00:45:48

something that we can

00:45:50--> 00:45:51

we can achieve.

00:45:53--> 00:46:22

So I guess it's the beginning of a new year. So people usually begin the new year with with resolutions and most of resolutions have to do with weight and health generally. Am I wrong in that assumption, or not just within our community, but generally speaking, you don't have you ever Don't raise your hand. Don't raise your hand not interested in any one volunteering, but maybe anybody here have a resolution for this year or a goal, let's call it that of losing weight becoming healthier.

00:46:24--> 00:46:30

Okay, so maybe like if you told me to inshallah, you make dua for me, I make draft for you.

00:46:32--> 00:47:13

Have you ever thought that I want to have the stature of the prophesies in them? You know, we have like, you know, the media always gives us these images, that you must look like this to be considered beautiful or to be considered handsome or to be considered fit. I don't know that the Prophet had a six pack or this I don't know that that's not part of what's described. They didn't have those standards, or those descriptive measures at that time. But what we do know is that he was his his was meeting so there was muscle there, there was muscle, there was strength. And that has to do with the nature of how they worked. In those days, they work they walked, or the when we get to

00:47:13--> 00:47:28

the walking of the offseason, and that will be very indicative of his health condition, how he walked, we'll get to that next inshallah. So the idea is, maybe this is something that can help us. You know, let's try to emulate the prophets. I send them in his moderation. And in his

00:47:30--> 00:47:32

the healthy nature of his stature.

00:47:33--> 00:47:37

He had wide shoulders. He had wide shoulders.

00:47:39--> 00:47:49

And monkey shoulders Nabina monkey Bay, the space between his shoulders was was wide. The space here in another narration at the end of this chapter, is described as a kahin.

00:47:51--> 00:47:53

Which is anybody familiar with the JAMA?

00:47:54--> 00:48:20

Anybody familiar? Jama? What do they call it cupping, wet, wet cupping. Anybody did that before. It's a prophetic, medicinal practice. One of the preferred places, one of the sunniest spots, if you go to someone with a gamma is alcohol. It's the the upper, the lower where the lower part of the neck meets the upper part of the back and shoulders. That's one of the good places to do a hegemon

00:48:21--> 00:48:37

to do wet cupping. And that space was wide. The narration described that that space was wide, so he had wide shoulders or the his Salatu was Salam. His joints and his limbs were proportionate. They were proportionate, very moderate and proportionate.

00:48:39--> 00:48:41

His head, the head of the prophet SAW Selim.

00:48:44--> 00:48:50

You know what's interesting, this is an interesting point, because one of the narration says that his head was large.

00:48:52--> 00:49:00

So that they thought about this a little bit. And because having a large head is not something necessarily praiseworthy,

00:49:01--> 00:49:02

you know,

00:49:03--> 00:49:05

both physically and metaphorically,

00:49:06--> 00:49:18

physically or even when you say someone has a big head, like both of those are not good descriptions. So they said his head appeared large when he had a full head of hair.

00:49:19--> 00:49:40

And so they say that description was based on that he had a lot of hair. And so that made it seem larger, but otherwise it was proportional. It was moderate. in in in in size, it shape it was rounded, but not fully round. It was a bit slender, but it was closer to round.

00:49:41--> 00:49:43

Some some heads machelle are very round.

00:49:44--> 00:49:59

One of my friends is this is not good. I won't tell you who it is. But one of you know it's not good to make nicknames for people you know in about something they don't like, physically, but one of my friends Masha Allah Allahu abetik. His head is so

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

perfectly spherical, that you know they give him a nickname of one of these brands that makes basketballs you know have like Spalding Wilson this and that because his head

00:50:11--> 00:50:20

was like perfectly round that you can have a geometry class Mashallah so so but so the props I sent him His head was not completely rounded. There was some

00:50:21--> 00:50:22


00:50:23--> 00:50:26

aspect to it, but it was closer to round.

00:50:27--> 00:50:28

It was closer to round

00:50:31--> 00:50:32

his hair

00:50:34--> 00:50:50

His hair was dark in color. So what was the color of his hair, it was very dark, and it was black. The color of his hair was black and it was dark. At laser when I built it.

00:50:51--> 00:51:23

When I was simply the prophesizing I'm his hair was not very curly. It was not very curly and thick, nor was it perfectly straight. And you know, kind of flowing kind of straight like that, but rather it had a little bit of wave. It was more on the wavy side was was his hair. When he combed it, and he would comb his hair the professor sent him was very keen on grooming himself. When he combed it, it would look like as if you ran a comb through

00:51:24--> 00:51:26

and made lines through the sand.

00:51:27--> 00:51:29

You know, like wavy in that nature.

00:51:31--> 00:52:15

The hair of the prophet SAW sent him was not always the same in terms of its length and how he kept his hair. So there were certain times where the Paul flexlm had his head shaved, had his head shaved, like when they went for her debut when they went for the puffs iclm shaved his head. So he had a completely shaved bald head. There were other times where the length varied. So there are some variations which describe the hair and it would come just under his ear lobes, just under his ear lobes of the narrations at different points in time. say they came just below the ear so they hung lower than his ear. And yet other narrations describe that the bottom of the hair hit his shoulders.

00:52:16--> 00:52:18

So the length of it came down to the shoulders.

00:52:20--> 00:52:35

So this is also something that you hear some people say sometimes that you know, it's so nice to have long hear from perspective of a man Why? Well the prophets I send him had long hair, but he didn't always have long hair, but he also shaved his head told like go ahead, shave your head.

00:52:36--> 00:52:38

Like my hair. Let's just say you're like your hair,

00:52:39--> 00:52:45

have long hair, but don't impose it and say oh, it's because it's an illness you like your hair bismil have long hair, Mashallah, you know,

00:52:46--> 00:53:25

so the idea is the prophets I said in his era wasn't always exactly the same at all at all times. But what was its color? It was dark. It was dark black. The narration here says what asef era is he went ahead he Sharona Shah Baba this particular narration says that he didn't have more than 20 white hairs. You know after he got older in age and with age, the hair color turns gray and white. This is part of the nature of life its it has its own beauty and radiance to it. That's why the poet said one time

00:53:27--> 00:53:58

that they are helping me Hakuna VEDA Houma. Illa Mahalo to me, daddy for actiu sawada and Phoebe LD would like to go hour by hour when he saw it. He said, You know, I write with a pen. And the passing of time also writes with a pen. The only difference between our pens is the color of the ink. I write black on white and time writes white on black. So so the prophet SAW Selim, he developed some white hairs, but not many. This particular narration says they were not more than they were not more than 20 they were not more than 20

00:54:00--> 00:54:20

some of the Redeemer they commented on this, and they said that, that it was mainly in his area, that it was mainly in his beard and there weren't many white hairs in his head. Specifically, they said it was in this hair here underneath the lower lip, and the name of it escapes me What is it called?

00:54:21--> 00:54:21

Anybody know?

00:54:23--> 00:54:25

There is a particular name for this

00:54:27--> 00:54:27


00:54:31--> 00:54:34

No, shallow remember?

00:54:37--> 00:54:55

charlo. I'll remember and I'll tell you what some of the one of our teachers said that most of the white hair of his Lydia was concentrated in this in this area what Allahu lm. So there are some different opinions, but it wasn't many. The majority of his hairs did not turn gray or white, but there were some there were some noticeable

00:54:57--> 00:55:00

his eyes his

00:55:00--> 00:55:05

Eyes are described in the narration, the beautiful eyes of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the

00:55:06--> 00:55:24

what are the different parts of the eye? So you have the eye ball, right? That's white. So it was very intense in its whiteness. It was very bright in its whiteness. And actually this contrast is what made it stand out so much the white part of the eye

00:55:25--> 00:55:27

is there a technical term was just eyeball

00:55:29--> 00:55:29


00:55:34--> 00:55:35

it's clearer

00:55:36--> 00:55:38

that's like the medical term.

00:55:39--> 00:55:39

Oh, wow.

00:55:40--> 00:55:48

of the of the white part. Oh, nice. Mashallah, okay, Zakouma here and we learned something new today. So that was very white. Yes.

00:55:50--> 00:55:52

The cornea

00:55:56--> 00:56:00

lice America me and you we're gonna have optometry ophthalmology class tonight.

00:56:01--> 00:56:02

It's my fault. I asked.

00:56:05--> 00:56:07

Can we just the white part

00:56:08--> 00:56:08

Misaki in

00:56:11--> 00:56:12

the white part was very white.

00:56:14--> 00:56:18

The this one I know this one. I'll get it for you check the pupils. Right.

00:56:20--> 00:56:24

Got this one. No debate about that one. What color was it? Black.

00:56:25--> 00:56:44

Usually when you describe the color of someone's eyes, they say oh so and so has blue eyes, so on so has green eyes, so and so has brown eyes, but most of it is white. They're referring to the pupil area. So the prophesized lm his was black. And it was very dark black. And so that contrast was very beautiful.

00:56:48--> 00:57:13

His eyelashes were long, we mentioned that they were long, and his eyes were wide. His eyes were wide in shape. His eyebrows. This is also something we hear in some of the narrations. His eyebrows were thick, Allahu Akbar. Because culture nowadays says you got to have thin eyebrows to be pretty nonprofit. So I sent him his eyebrows were thick, very thick.

00:57:14--> 00:57:19

But there was no What do they call it unibrow. He didn't have a unibrow.

00:57:21--> 00:57:57

So even though usually usually a lot, most people that have very thick eyebrows. Usually the hair will join in the middle right? Generally speaking, but with the prophets, I seldom it was clear in between the two. And actually, there's another Hadith which mentions there was a vein that ran in that space in between. And it was apparent, whenever the prophets I send him would would get very serious, or he would intensify in his demeanor, that vein would would kind of pop out a bit more it would be more noticeable and more prominent and installed onto a system. So his eyebrows were thick. And they were

00:57:58--> 00:58:03

they were arched. Now the individual hairs of the prophets I send them were thin.

00:58:04--> 00:58:13

But because they were plentiful, as a whole, it was thick. But the individual hairs of the prophets I send them were very thin.

00:58:15--> 00:58:52

We mentioned his eyelashes were were long his nose and his Salatu was Salam. How was his nose, his nose was on the longer side. It was slightly longer, not very long get any like, awkward. But it was not short and stubby it was on the longer side of the spectrum. His nose was long, and it was relatively pointy, pointy towards the end and it was prominent on his face. his nostrils were not very big, nor very small. They were long. Let's we're almost done, we have to wrap up. So let's wrap up and then we'll get to some questions in Sharla.

00:58:53--> 00:59:30

And so it was of a longer and they say they describe that it was slightly raised up, like kind of slightly raised up. Now there's another narration which one of our teachers commented on where the nose was described as being slightly raised up like that. But he said actually, it wasn't like that, but it's because the Prophet always stood very straight, that from the perspective of the narrator that's how it looked to him that it wasn't necessarily raised. But because he always stood up very straight. It appeared from that perspective that his nose was raised up all over them. So just something to keep in mind.

00:59:32--> 01:00:00

The mouth of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was wide his teeth, there was a slight gap in between his front two teeth, if any attain there was a slight gap, a slight space between the two. And at that time, that was something that was considered very attractive. So much so until today in some cultures, in some cultures, maybe not. In our culture here perhaps it's a matter of taste.

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

I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder, they say, but in those days it was considered attractive to have a gap or a space between the teeth so much that people used to actually

01:00:11--> 01:00:14

do that to their teeth. If they didn't have a space, they would do it.

01:00:16--> 01:00:33

effleurage they would they would do space between the prophesized Adam forbade us from doing that, that's part of that falls under the category of changing the creation of a law that they would chip away at the teeth and push them apart in an effort to to have that sort of attractive

01:00:34--> 01:00:37

image, the beard of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

01:00:39--> 01:00:57

The beard of the Prophet so I sent him was full, and and it was dense, it was a thick beard. And we mentioned the white hairs that we had, and we mentioned that they were concentrated mostly in the area underneath his lower lip, they sold out to us to them, and it was thick, it came out.

01:00:58--> 01:01:10

And, and his moustache was trimmed, and it was thin and light. And this is part of the practices of the fit that all the prophets, I send them encourage the men to trim their mustaches and to

01:01:11--> 01:02:04

allow their beards to grow. That was part of what he saw that is both descriptive, as well as prescriptive as well as prescriptive. his hands and his feet. They were large in size. He had large hands, and he his Salatu was Salam. We had mentioned earlier about the joints, how they were full, and his limbs were meeting. his forearms did not have a lot of hair. He did not have a lot of hair on his on his forearms. His fingers were thick. His fingers were thick and wide. And in his hand, we mentioned that it was very smooth and soft, and his feet were very, they were also large and very full with flesh. And he had some extra flesh on his heels. And it would kind of swell a little bit

01:02:04--> 01:02:37

in the Hadeeth of the Isha. When he stood up in pm until his ankles into his heels, his bottom of his feet swelled a little bit because he was standing on them so long, but they did not they were not cracked. They were smooth and the profit size of them was careful about his about grooming and keeping himself clean. His art arches were the arcs of his feet were high and he had a big step. The prophets I sent him had a big stride. And this is also something that was described in one of the narrations

01:02:38--> 01:02:43

measure the calf, either Masha Taka, Taka, Taka and Ma and help them in

01:02:44--> 01:02:47

the inner man help them in Sabah. So in this narration

01:02:49--> 01:03:35

kind of describes that when he would walk, there would be a slight lean forward he walked with strength and with determination. Now he did not walk very fast, where it almost looks like walking but like you're trying to like jog almost no. Nor did he walk slow, the prophet didn't walk slow, unless, unless he was assisting or helping someone or in the Hadeeth where he was being where he was following an elderly woman. Then he would adjust his pace to be merciful to the person he was with. But generally the Prophet had a faster stride. And I and helped them in flub up the narration it describes as if if you were I were walking from an elevated to a lower elevation, like you know,

01:03:35--> 01:04:09

like, for example, like a little small, little elevation in the sidewalk or like in a hill or like in a garage, for example, you know, you naturally How would you walk down? You're not trying to walk fast, but just, you know, what do they call it gravity, you just naturally your pace will, your stride will get longer your piece will increase. That's how the Prophet walked on, flat ground on flat ground. So this goes back to his health and his stamina, and the strength with which he walked any his Salatu was Salam. So many of these narrations and with them out of the home is La

01:04:13--> 01:04:20

La here later little harmala model a two sheet and up as an amine. I have never seen anyone like him before him or after him.

01:04:23--> 01:04:35

A bottle opener as it says I saw him wearing a red cloak. I have never seen anyone more. I've never seen an image of anyone more beautiful and perfect than that image of the prophets. I sent him that I saw on that night.

01:04:36--> 01:04:46

Now commenting on this, by the way, the aroma on a technical legal note there NMR commented because we have some other narrations which mentioned the

01:04:48--> 01:05:00

witch which basically discourage from wearing all red from wearing red. So the LMS said, What's going on here? How do we you know is there a contradiction going on. So there might have been

01:05:00--> 01:05:07

Different ways of understanding this. Some of them said if the cloak or if the clothing is entirely red

01:05:08--> 01:05:22

come entirely with not like any stripes for example, or like a red vest or red jacket Mashallah. Also some of them talked about the hue of red. Some of them said it's not red, like you know, but it's closer to the orange like bright.

01:05:23--> 01:05:55

Like when it's like red mixed, kind of like with a saffron very bright some of them said that and they said no, they, they said, because this was some of the color of some of the mushy Keane some of the pagan practices will love them, but the majority of them said that it is not how it is disliked. It is not impermissible, it is disliked, for the clothing to be entirely in red. And here the prophets I said them it was one particular garment that was red. It wasn't all of his clothing from head to toe. We'll look at them. And there are some other explanations that there are other my gift best adequately had. It's not impermissible, it's not sinful.

01:05:56--> 01:06:01

But the idea is we find so many of these narrations ending with this phrase.

01:06:02--> 01:06:47

With this observation, I've never seen anyone like him. Before him or after him. I've never seen anyone more beautiful I've never seen anyone so proportioned and so appropriate. And so beautiful for me to look upon. Now there is beauty in physical characteristics. But there is also beauty that Allahu subhana wa tada gives, there is beauty that Allah subhanaw taala gives to some of his creation. And that is not necessarily a beauty that you can quantify or describe with the colors and with shapes and sizes. But it is a beauty it is an attachment. It is an attractive gravitational pull that you may have. And that's not necessarily because of a person's physical image. But that is

01:06:47--> 01:06:50

something that Allah Subhana Allah bless them with.

01:06:51--> 01:07:12

We mentioned a few things about Musa alayhis salam, we'll mention one more. It was said that when Moosa as a baby came upon, in front of Asya, the wife of her own, that she immediately felt so attached and so attracted to this maybe that there was a beauty and a radiance and there are some narrations also that say that fit our own had the same thing as well.

01:07:13--> 01:07:56

But because he recognized that this is a child from beneath, saw in his arrogance came in the way and so he refused to acknowledge or accept that but there was that attachment. Where did that come from? Look inside of Baja Allah subhana wa tada said, What LA to LA can have better Mini, Allah says about Musa I have given you I have reserved for you special love from me, for you, I have cast upon you special love for me, especially for you Musa pray to Allah can I have better mini alasa tomasa. So of course there would be that attachment to that, that, you know, attraction. And so the Prophet sallallahu wasallam also had that

01:07:58--> 01:08:06

attractive nature that that beauty, but it wasn't a shallow beauty. But rather it was a beauty that came with all with haber.

01:08:07--> 01:08:37

haber is a hard word to translate into English. But it's it's you know, perhaps, is the best word that you feel in the presence of someone very grand and noble reverence I like about someone that whose whose presence and whose image commends respect and dignity before even they open their mouth, but the way they carry themselves and being in their presence, you cannot help but feel that you are in the presence of someone noble, and have that it is Salatu was Salam.

01:08:38--> 01:08:56

Do you guys have an image now in your mind of how the prophets I said I'm looked hold on to it in sha Allah May Allah Unitas with him and Jenna and we'll see in sha Allah to Allah whose imagination was more accurate. May Allah subhanahu wa tada beautify us with the character of their beloved messenger it is Salatu was Salam.

01:08:57--> 01:09:07

O Allah to Allah will continue the first Friday of each month. So our next appointment is February 2 inshallah, who who attended and we'll move on to the next chapter

01:09:09--> 01:09:30

of the description of the prophet Isaiah them of his Shema in May Allah subhana wa Tada, makers of those who listen for the best of what they hear, May Allah increase us in our love and attachment to our beloved messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Darwin and hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa sallam Baraka anabaena Mohammed Allahu Alem. Anybody have any questions? We will charlo to either

01:09:31--> 01:09:31

field them

01:09:54--> 01:09:59

that that there was some there was some height to it. It was a little bit height to I don't know if arched is

01:10:00--> 01:10:04

Allahu Allah I will look into. I will look into that a bit more inshallah.

01:10:05--> 01:10:17

Yes, but it was Yeah, you're right that it wasn't sharp and pointy. It was It was long. It was it was Yeah, but it wasn't you know, it wasn't like like a pencil straight kind of Yeah.

01:10:22--> 01:10:28

No, that's too much. No, no, that's too much. Yeah, that is too much. Yes.

01:10:34--> 01:10:35

Allahu Allah.

01:10:37--> 01:10:38

I don't know.

01:10:39--> 01:10:46

There is, there is definitely some narrations that indicate that he is from the lineage of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but I cannot

01:10:48--> 01:11:02

remember anything now that I know of that talks about his physical description, something shala will review. But there were some Sahaba that were described to resemble the prophets I said and physically. Anybody heard of who?

01:11:05--> 01:11:12

the grandson of officer saddam hasn't ever seen? Yes. But there was someone that was not from his direct family.

01:11:13--> 01:11:17

No, yes. Who was that? Go to?

01:11:20--> 01:11:21

Ghana, Canada, the

01:11:24--> 01:11:25

most I've ever made.

01:11:26--> 01:11:27

Most I've ever made.

01:11:28--> 01:11:32

He was the flagbearer of the Muslim army in code.

01:11:33--> 01:11:35

And this is very interesting, actually. Because

01:11:37--> 01:11:45

Amina, who is one of the machete Koon, who killed him when he killed the Muslim he said, he said, I've killed Mohammed.

01:11:46--> 01:11:58

So the historians they debate, they said, Did he say that to cause strife within the ranks? Or did he say that because he genuinely believed that because most of them resemble the prophets. I send them so much.

01:11:59--> 01:12:14

Different historical ideas, but most of them are made was one of the Sahaba that was mentioned that he resembled. He had many of the physical characteristics that resemble the prophesized cinema and a few others are habit as well. Well,

01:12:16--> 01:12:16


01:12:19--> 01:12:23

Did we did we look it up? Where did he go? He left.

01:12:32--> 01:12:36

Let's see if it is translated. I don't know.

01:12:46--> 01:12:47

So I see it online.

01:12:49--> 01:12:55

But I don't know if each so you can find it online. translated.

01:12:57--> 01:13:07 I actually know who made this website. So that's kind of cool. su, double n You'll find the whole thing translated there.

01:13:11--> 01:13:25 su n calm. I don't work for them. This isn't a plug. I'm just saying. Hmm.

01:13:30--> 01:13:31

It says

01:13:32--> 01:13:47

it says Shana, it's transliterated says Shama Illa, mohammedia the noble features of rasulillah. The noble features, it's pretty obvious, right from the homepage, so I think you will see it very clearly. Yep. On the homepage, it's on the column to the right at the bottom.

01:13:48--> 01:13:49

You can't miss it.

01:13:50--> 01:13:57

Is it in book form? Maybe? I don't know. We'll find out. inshallah. We'll find out. I'm sure. A

01:13:58--> 01:14:03

very passive, Google search will give us the answer. or Amazon search. Yes, ma'am.

01:14:20--> 01:14:26

Yeah. So you mean present date to the prophet SAW sent him or you mean of his lineage before him?

01:14:27--> 01:14:58

After? Absolutely, absolutely. As a matter of fact, in many predominantly Muslim, populated countries, I know for a fact that they had this, they still have it. In in Jordan, and in Syria. I know this for a fact because I know someone who actually went to these facilities. So they have certain offices that are as an endowment, and they actually verify a lineage. Going back to the prophets, I saw them and they will actually certify that lineage tree

01:14:59--> 01:15:00


01:15:00--> 01:15:26

So I actually knew someone in Medina who had they give him a bit law, they gave him a card. Not that you need one. Yeah. And he or not that, you know, not that that is what is going to get you. But it's special. It's interesting. So they actually give him a card that we have studied this person's lineage and their family tree. And we have verified, and we can validate and certify that this is a correct lineage going back to the prophet SAW SLM.

01:15:27--> 01:15:28


01:15:29--> 01:16:06

yeah, I don't know. I don't know, I don't know too much about them or their religion or what they claim. But, but definitely not not just that community. But even within the Sunni community. There's a lot of people that claim that. So there's a lot of people that that say we are shut off, or we are say it, and it's very possible a lot of times that it could be the case, or it's possible that that's something that just gets passed on. Like, you know, someone said it somewhere. And so everybody Oh, that's really cool. So everyone just kind of copied it without verifying. But it is important to verify, is there a mechanism in place to do so? Yes, there are? Yes, there are some

01:16:06--> 01:16:08

mechanisms, and there are some environments in the Muslim world

01:16:10--> 01:16:13

that that do study that.

01:16:15--> 01:16:17

Is there anyone here that does it? I don't know.

01:16:19--> 01:16:20

They don't know that.

01:16:26--> 01:16:38

Yeah, the DNA testing, I'm not really a specialist in biology. I don't know if anybody here is but the DNA testing kind of a, it's, it tells you more sort of on a regional.

01:16:39--> 01:16:47

I think a lot of these because these websites are becoming very popular these websites where you give them a DNA sample, and then they tell you, oh, you're this percentage from this region.

01:16:48--> 01:17:01

So yeah, that's pretty cool. But that's not going to tell you of an individual. Yeah, unless you have two individuals, then they can they can compare or contrast those two peoples dnase. But obviously, we don't have the DNA of the prophesies. lm.

01:17:07--> 01:17:32

Yeah. So again, I like your choice of wood. So that's a claim, but it's unverified. It's unverified. So there is no, you know, with it, which is amazing. By the way, if you ponder about that, we have statements of the prophesies of them. Like we have a phrase, verbatim word for word, we can trace from right now in this room, we can trace its lineage back to the mouth of the Prophet, so I said them

01:17:33--> 01:17:58

and not like a singular chain of people. But we can trace it to large dozens, hundreds 1000s, at certain stages of the time period, hundreds of 1000s that narrated this narration verbatim, right? And heard it from different pathways, and it all goes back to the prophets I send them. So this is something they call tomato motivated.

01:18:00--> 01:18:31

where it becomes so passed down and so verified, we know who heard it from who, where they heard it, and at what time, and we are able to verify the character, and the strength of memory and recording of that person. This is the science of how do you say call it a bob will add in a bob when added? Is this person added? Is this person trustworthy? And is this person accurate? Because you can be very trustworthy. That's all I'm asking. I can't remember what I had for breakfast.

01:18:33--> 01:18:48

Or someone could have a sharp memory. But they told a lie once before we scratch their name off, right? That's how amazing the science of Hadith is. And that's really saddening, when people come and say like, just a hadith

01:18:49--> 01:19:30

is just a hadith is just a saying, like someone just, it's just words of someone read, we have the most scientific of scientific methods to verify word for word where this came from no other study, no other, no other subject of learning has centered the way we have it. And how do you think Hold on, like a chain of an unbroken chain of verified narration, you can take one Hadeeth. And you can say, so and so heard this statement from so and so who heard it from so and so who heard it from so and so? And then we can trace each person? Are they trustworthy? And are they accurate? Check? Where did they meet?

01:19:32--> 01:19:39

Did they live at the same time? Is it plausible that they met? Yes, they met at this place at this city, this one learn from this and we can take that all the way back to the Prophet. So I said

01:19:41--> 01:19:50

we don't have that for any of his hairs, or what people claim is his hair. I find that very interesting. I think there's some wisdom in that world.

01:19:51--> 01:19:59

But even if you do go to someone who claims to have a hair, I don't think they would allow you to do some DNA testing on it.

01:20:00--> 01:20:04

never asked them but if you know someone, maybe you can ask them for us.

01:20:08--> 01:20:12

I don't want to say it's wrong. I there's no need to

01:20:13--> 01:20:17

to say it's wrong. What I will say is it's unverified.

01:20:18--> 01:20:23

I will say that it's quite unlikely, but I'm not gonna say that it's totally wrong.

01:20:25--> 01:20:44

Is it possible? Yes, it's possible. But it's definitely not verified that for sure. We know because we have ways of verifying what's been passed down to us from the prophets I send them but but there's no reason to say that it's it's all a lie as far as they're made up. There's I'm not gonna waste any energy and debunking that.

01:20:45--> 01:20:47

Does that come from Sarah Marie Kondo. Oh, Lord,
