Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam

00:00:11--> 00:00:48

ala Amina whether it be a Jemaine along masala send him any more Vedic either seed you know a heavy vino Mohammed were early he was lucky to be here seldom at the Sleeman kathira We begin by thanking and praising Allah subhana wa tada we beseech him to shower our beloved messenger with compliments and salutations and upon his family and his companions and all of those who follow His guidance until the end of time. We ask Allah subhana wa tada Mohammad eliminare man and Ferro now when we met, Tina was in our email, we ask Allah to teach us that which benefits us and to allow us to benefit from what he has taught us and to increase us in beneficial knowledge.

00:00:50--> 00:01:14

As to what follows it's good to be back with your hamdulillah after a month apart, but this month for some reason feels longer than the other ones. Is that just me maybe because of because of hedge anybody was able to make hedges this year. From from in this room, okay. hamdulillah sha Allah, you will have opportunities to do so. In the near future. I mean,

00:01:15--> 00:01:18

a late 18 robotic to those of you that were here

00:01:19--> 00:01:33

more than a month late, but inshallah you guys had an enjoyable experience hamdulillah myself with some of the other local imams we had a group so we were able to go for Hajj this year. It was a positive experience hamdulillah

00:01:34--> 00:01:36

with its own unique challenges and

00:01:38--> 00:02:17

and opportunities as well, but hamdulillah it was it was positive, it was positive. Some people have been seeing pictures and videos of like a really bad storm in Mecca during Hajj time. And so everybody keeps asking me Are you gay in the storm? I think it looked worse in some pictures and it actually was especially because they were changing the kiss whether the night before alpha, which is that was scheduled to be that way. And it was very windy. So I think some people took a video and the wind blew the kisser so people got really scared they're like, Oh my god, that guy was uncovered. But that happens every year. I mean, not the wind but the changing of the kiswa and

00:02:17--> 00:02:34

whatnot. So and hamdulillah it was it was not too bad. Yes, there were some strong winds and some rain in some areas, but where we were at hamdulillah It was quite mild and and nothing severe. What hamdulillah inshallah, tada, we have an opportunity to perform that ritual of Hajj together with Neela.

00:02:35--> 00:02:42

Myself and Mandy had a good experience last year hamdulillah and inshallah others as well. It'll accept from all of us.

00:02:44--> 00:03:25

We will continue in Sharla huzzah. vada, with data from where we left off last month. For those joining us or tuning in on the live stream. or watching the video for the first time. We are going through the book of Shama, Ito Timothy, which is a book that mentions narrations that are descriptive in nature of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So there are different types of biographical texts that teach us about the life of the messenger, the type that the genre of Shama in is descriptive in nature. So it doesn't go in chronological order, nor does it talk about daily events in order but rather, it talks about the description of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:03:25--> 00:03:30

wasallam, we are about 50%, a little less than 50% through the text, it's not a large text.

00:03:32--> 00:04:11

And it's compiled by the famous scholar of Hadith Mmm, ultimately, we begin by talking about the physical description of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we reached all the way until the last chapter, where we have been talking about how he would eat and drink, how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam ate and drink. And the last thing that we mentioned so that we can connect last session with this one is we talked about how the prophets of Allah how to send them would wash after eating, and in the chapter heading, even the word rule is used, but it's not the same as the ritual washing that we do before Salah or rather This one was the Prophet Cyrus and and washing and

00:04:11--> 00:04:15

cleansing himself and we mentioned some narrations related to that.

00:04:17--> 00:04:46

So we will continue from there inshallah. Tada. So we are at chapter number 28. Chapter number 28. In the book, and this chapter is Babel magic, if you already are Sunni like Isabella Miranda, he was said I'm a tabula Panoramio better than I have a woman. This chapter is talking about, what did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, before eating and after he would conclude his meal? What are the prayers or supplications that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would recite, just like Colombia.

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

So first of all, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught us a number of etiquettes and manners pertaining and related to eating and drinking. We mentioned some of them last time, we had a little

00:05:01--> 00:05:10

Even show until how the prophets I send them would sit while he was eating and whatnot and we talked about that. So among these manners and etiquette is

00:05:11--> 00:05:27

among the manners and the etiquettes of eating and drinking, our prayers are derived supplications that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would recite. And when you look at the life of the processor in general, not just eating and drinking, you see that his days and his nights were full of hiccups.

00:05:28--> 00:06:07

In every hand in every situation, the prophets I send them was in there was an outcome. There was there, from the moment he would wake up. From the moment he would wake up, the first thing that comes out of his mouth is thicker, mentioned and remembrance of Allah and a drought. And then before he makes will do, he has a vicar and after he finishes, we'll go he has a vicar and when he stands for Salah, there is an insula, there is the cat and after Salah was finished, there was Nikki when he would meet people there were certain doors when he would visit someone who was ill. There was a draft when he would visit someone who had a member of their family that passed away there was there

00:06:07--> 00:06:19

at a funeral procession there was a kid and you're out for that when he would eat before eating the door after eating, before going inside the bathroom door after exiting from the bathroom, Vicki

00:06:20--> 00:06:31

you guys are getting the picture here. Throughout his day the prophet SAW Selim is always constantly engaged in wicked andreyev Allah subhana wa tada in each situation, as a matter of fact,

00:06:32--> 00:06:41

very one of my favorite Hadeeth one of my favorite narrations, a man came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Sahabi companion avasarala.

00:06:43--> 00:07:25

And he said to the Messenger of Allah, and I want you to listen to what he's saying. Some people may be startled, so happy speaking like this companion of Rasul, Allah says these words, because a lot of times we hear about Sahaba and we think they're so different from us. And we think we are so far away. Everything is different. Whenever you tell someone example from a life of a Sahabi Oh, that was then now it's not the same. Old, listen to the Sahabi. And tell me if it's not very similar to what we say and experience and feel today. Java Jordan lnav Salalah Hardy, he was a man came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he said Yana suit Allah. He said, O Messenger of Allah, in Nashua.

00:07:25--> 00:07:40

Yeah, Al Islami, careful not earlier. He said, O Messenger of Allah, all of the legal aspects of the religion are too much for me to grasp. I get I feel like I can't grasp all of the legal aspects of this religion.

00:07:42--> 00:08:06

So can you Oh, messenger of Allah inform me of one ml, inform me of something. Now, this is not talking about the follow up, of course, obligatory actions aside, he is fulfilling his obligations. He's saying, in addition to that, one woman at a busy woman, just tell me one thing on messenger of Allah, listen, I'm a simple guy, I will stick with it for the rest of my life.

00:08:08--> 00:08:19

So how are we going to criticize him for that? How many of us sometimes feel the same way? Oh, man, there's so much for me to learn. There's so much for me to do. How can I keep up with all of this?

00:08:20--> 00:08:32

So he said, rasuwa Sorry, I sent him said, layers to listen, as I release a new car, hopefully Benjamin Vickery law. He said, keep your tongue moist from the vicar of Allah.

00:08:33--> 00:09:09

One thing that you you can't do anything else, you just want to focus on one thing for the rest of your life, be in a state of Vicar. Keep your tongue moving with the remembrance of Allah. And that's exactly how I salicylate I send them lived his life. Sometimes in a genocide. Abu huraira says, we were in a mejlis we are sitting with the prophet like we're sitting now. We're sitting with the prophets, I send them by the time we got up and left, I heard him say a Stubblefield. Last 70 times, or more than 70 times, in, even in in a social gathering. It wasn't formal, just the prophets. I said, I was hanging out with his companions, and his tongue is moving stuff, it a lot of stuff and a

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

lot of stuff.

00:09:11--> 00:09:50

So this is a very positive, you know, addictions are not good. Generally speaking, we shouldn't be addicted. But if you want to be addicted to something, be addicted to liquor. That's a good addiction. It's a good habit to have. Even sometimes you're not even thinking about it. We should understand the meanings of what we're saying. Yes. But even sometimes when we're relaxed, or we're driving in a commute, or whatnot, our tongues are moving with some Hana la Hamdulillah, La Ilaha, Illallah Allahu Akbar. I'll mention one more narration, and then we'll continue with our topic. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a story of it. It's a lot with marriage. You guys remember

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

that story? It's a story where the Messenger of Allah ascended, he took a night journey. It was a miraculous journey, and he ascended and rose through the heavens.

00:10:00--> 00:10:14

through the skies until he reached a point beyond which any other messenger had reached and he received the commandment from Allah for Allah for the obligatory devotional daily worship that we do five times a day.

00:10:16--> 00:10:21

It's a very long story. It's a beautiful story, inshallah we'll discuss it on another day in sha Allah.

00:10:23--> 00:10:51

However, as he was ascending from one level of the heavens to the other, he met with some of the previous prophets and messengers before him. of the messengers he met was Ibrahim Alayhi, salaam, Abraham. And when he met Abraham Ibrahim said up to date Metallica Salam Ibrahim said to the Messiah Salaam, you and I, he said Sarah Morocco. Ibrahim is saying to you and I said I'm writing

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

and he said

00:10:54--> 00:11:01

in a form that almost Mohammed tell your son in law how to send them tell them that an agenda

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

to

00:11:03--> 00:11:04

better

00:11:05--> 00:11:54

inform them that Jenna paradise May Allah subhanaw taala gather us in general, the dirt of Jenna is very fertile. It's a good for growing crops, very fertile soil. You know, there are some places around with not so much effort. So many plants grow. For example, the nail basin, you know, very fertile ground for centuries and civilizations. It's been that way. Other places it requires so much work and so much water. Gender, the soil, the dirt is very good. It's high quality. Well, Eva Toba very fertile, as much as the water of Jenna is sweet and pure, very good water, good soil and good water. Now for those of you Mashallah that are experts in farming, how many people are experts in

00:11:54--> 00:12:24

farming? Not me. Okay. You know that if you have good quality soil and good quality water, you can grow some good crops. Well, and he and he said, but let me tell you something about Jenna. Jenna is the hand what is thinner and mean? The hand means it's empty. The it's it's empty. There's nothing planted there. It's like imagine you go to a farmland and you have the dirt and it's plowed, but there's no trees beyond.

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

Enter vilasa Subhana Allah hamdu Lillah Allahu Akbar, and to plant it, the seeds by which you plant and you feel your plot in general, is the statements Subhana Allah and hamdulillah Allah.

00:12:41--> 00:13:21

So Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger have promised for the believers, Jenna and when you want to go to your place in general, may Allah subhanaw taala gather us there. When you want to go to your plot and your land and Jenna, you want it to be full of trees, you don't want it to be empty. So plant your garden of Jenna from now with soprano lower hamdu Lillah Allahu Akbar. So this is what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us not only in his words, but here we're gonna see in his actions, his whole day is filled with wicked amongst that time is eating and drinking. So not only is it a means of staying connected to Allah, but it is also a means of being

00:13:21--> 00:14:02

grateful to Allah subhanaw taala you have this food in front of you, you have this drink, so kind of luck. We are not meant to be like animals, animals, you take them to the food, they jump in, they start eating. That's how I created them. But the human being is supposed to be at a higher intellectual caliber than livestock and animals. So when food is presented, we start with Dora and with Vicar Bismillah we make mention of the name of Allah and what should we be thinking? We should be thinking how Allah has blessed us with this food what a gift from Allah Subhana tada we should appreciate we should go into this food now recognizing the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala in this

00:14:02--> 00:14:09

meal and also just making that statement will do two things to the food

00:14:10--> 00:14:23

number one it will increase in the Basilica it will the the food quantity might not change but what we are able to benefit from the food will be more look at the first Hadeeth in this chapter

00:14:24--> 00:14:30

and maybe even in Ansari corner in the Navy some longer it was cinema Yeoman for kobelco Airmen for them

00:14:32--> 00:14:36

former Baraka 10 min who uh what am I what happened ah Baraka 10 fee

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

for the Euro sudama Keifa hada are in the communist ma La Nina Aquila. So maka dem and Akira what am Musa Mila ha Tara kurama who shavon Ansari, who by the way when Rasulullah first moved to Medina, you hosted him in his house for six months and then the Prophet moved to his own house. So Abu is a very special person, anybody

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

visited Istanbul maybe even the turkey you've been uttered. If you've been to Turkey, you but Ansari is buried in stumble, there is msgid there they call it

00:15:10--> 00:15:50

a use of fun, they call it Jama epsilon in Istanbul, you can go visit it there. And it's it's, I liked it, I visited there and it was very beautiful and shama rhodiola horn. So he said, you know, we are sitting with the Messenger of Allah one day, and somebody brought food. He said, so we began eating, and I have never eaten food that had more Baraka in it than the beginning of that meal. But by the end of the meal, there was no bollock in it. The food was going, but it was like we weren't eating, what happened. So he turned to the Messenger of Allah and he said, What's going what happened in this meal? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in when we first came and sat

00:15:50--> 00:16:33

down the coldness of Allah, we said, Bismillah, we made mention of a last name. So there was so much about a cat, then more people joined afterwards, towards the end of the meal. And they did not say Bismillah, they sat down and started eating. So guess who ate with them who joined them in the meal, a shape on set and join them in the meal. And so they were eating, but the benefit and the output of that meal was far dramatically reduced. And so one of the benefits of beginning our meal with making mention of Allah's Name is you get more out of that meal, it could be a small quantity, but you feel full, you will feel good, it will contribute towards your health and your nutrition and your long

00:16:33--> 00:16:52

term data. Another thing is that just making Vica and having that intention of gratitude to Allah will transform this very typical, mundane daily activity of eating that we all do. From a boring activity to

00:16:54--> 00:17:09

suddenly that activity of eating becomes something that we get rewarded for Allahu Akbar. So you win twice, you enjoy the food, and you get a general with a love for it. All because you began with Bismillah and with the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:17:12--> 00:17:14

So, the next Hadith

00:17:15--> 00:17:33

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and he, and he shamit Naruto and Abby here and Mr. Mehta and Buddha Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam are in the hook line for con uno yagoona yen for some Mila Hazara what could it be aminika what couldn't be Malik

00:17:35--> 00:18:13

remote of Nairobi said Emma narrates that he visited the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once, while the prophet SAW Selim had food he was eating it was mealtime. So he invited him to join him. He said, Come close, all my son, come on, join me. And from this, if we pause here, we learned that from the Sunnah of the prophet Isaiah lamb is when you are eating, and someone comes, invite them to join you in the meal. Even if you didn't prepare to have anyone with you. You might somebody might come back, well, there's not enough food for the two of us. Don't worry about that. Invite them to join you and allow we'll put vodka in it. And the prophet SAW Selim said the food for one is

00:18:13--> 00:18:52

sufficient for two. And the food for two is sufficient for three. And you can keep going with the statistics with the pattern. So he said, Come on my son join me in the food. So he sat down, and the Prophet, look at how he is well, and he's a teacher. In every situation, he teaches, with the utmost mercy, he is concerned about people's practice of what is pleasing to Allah. So he said, Come close on my son. And he said, mentioned the name of Allah, say Bismillah number one, and number two, he said, eat with your right hand, eat with your right hand, this is a son of the messenger solahart they will send them and eat from that which is in front of you.

00:18:54--> 00:19:04

Now, it with your right hand. We talked about saying Bismillah eat with your right hand. This is the sooner This is the teaching of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. Some people are left handed.

00:19:05--> 00:19:42

What should they do? They should practice eating with the right hand until they can improve upon that skill. And it's not to say that there is a deficiency or there's something wrong with them. No, there's nothing wrong with being left handed. It's fine. That's how a lot created you. It's okay. But when it comes to eating, we should follow the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and with that intention, you know, maybe I'm really dominant in my left hand. It's really hard for me to make that intention that I want to please Allah. I love the Messenger of Allah, I want to be similar to him. So I'm going to put effort Allah will put Baba cat and will strengthen

00:19:42--> 00:19:45

your hand for you. You know, there was a man who was left handed.

00:19:46--> 00:19:50

And so he was eating with his left hand. So the Messenger of Allah said to him,

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

eat with your right hand. He said, I can't. He responded very abrasively to the Messenger of Allah with arrogance. And so the messenger

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

Allah said, You will never. And so it was said that he was never able to use that hand after that. Because he was arrogant in his response. He could have said I'll try.

00:20:11--> 00:20:38

And some people, for example, they're forgetful. I'm left handed, so always reach with my left hand. It's okay. If you're an almighty, Allah will forgive forgetfulness. But when you are reminded, make an effort. Okay? I'll try Mr. Min, maybe it's a little bit messy. It's okay, no problem we can deal with, we can deal with mess. That's okay. So with your right hand, anything that is following the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam? It is there's benefit for us in it, I'm sure a lot of time

00:20:39--> 00:20:55

and eat from what is in front of you. Could be my colleague eat from that which is in front of you. So let's imagine how did they use to eat at the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam? Would they share one plate? Or would the food be divided? Each person has their own plate?

00:20:56--> 00:20:57

What do you guys think

00:20:58--> 00:21:26

they would share from one plate, which is still a very prominent cultural practice in many cultures still today. And there's a beauty to that, well, it there's a beauty and there's an enjoyment to sharing the same plate with other people. However, there are some etiquettes you have to follow. We mentioned one of them last month. Anybody remember, if you're sharing a plate with someone, and you're eating with them, there is an etiquette that you should anybody remember, it involves licking.

00:21:28--> 00:21:30

You remember? Anybody remember,

00:21:32--> 00:21:33

fork or spoon or hand.

00:21:37--> 00:21:56

Because last month, we read that the prophet SAW said lamb, after he would eat, he would lick his fingers to finish all of the food and not leave anything and then throw it and wash away. So we said from the etiquette, if you are sharing a plate with someone, don't lick your fingers until at the end of the meal, because otherwise you're

00:21:57--> 00:22:33

gonna go right back in. So that's gonna be a little bit too intimate. You know? Thank you. But you can keep that for yourself. You know, it's kind of like how when you have chips and salsa, we say no double dipping, right? No double dipping you one time call us finish your chip and get a new chip if you want to dip again. But yeah, same concept. The culture is different, same concept. So here is another etiquette? Could it be my colleague, if you're sharing a plate with someone eat from that which is in front of you, in front of you, you might share a plate with someone and they're sitting there and you're sitting here, you shouldn't reach to that part of them. Okay, nice. You take from

00:22:33--> 00:22:40

their side. That's not polite. That's not good manners. This is your side of the plate. So you eat from your side of the plate.

00:22:41--> 00:22:42

Like, what if I'm not sharing a plate?

00:22:43--> 00:23:17

What if I have my own plate by myself, I'm not sharing it with anyone. So here, the LMS said, then you can eat from any part of the plate that you wish. It's not it does. This applies to when you are sharing when you're eating from the same boss, or the same enough, you're eating from the same container. Okay, but if I have my own plate, my own bowl, I can eat from the side. Maybe I've dropped a potato here. Maybe there's some carrots over here. So you go like that. That's number one. So this refers to eating from the same plate. That's number one. Number two.

00:23:19--> 00:23:26

They said there is an exception to this rule, there is an exception to this etiquette. And that is if the food is not mixed.

00:23:28--> 00:23:35

Let's say I'm sharing a plate. Okay, we're sharing a plate, myself. And Randy, we're sharing one plate some article.

00:23:36--> 00:23:46

Come on, man. So let's imagine we're sharing a plate. Okay. And on his side of the plate is the potato. And on my side of the plate is the meat.

00:23:47--> 00:24:23

So what do you think he's gonna do? He's just gonna sit there eating potatoes all night, you guys don't know, he's going for that meat. It's coming for that steak. They said in this case, it's permissible to go beyond your section of the plate to get that different, slim, that different type of food, because on my side is all the meat that serves all the potatoes. The brother wants a meat miskeen he's not a vegetarian. So he's gonna take a piece of meat and me, um, you know, I'm not eating protein tonight. So I need my potatoes so I can reach to his side. Somebody might say, Well, can you get a lazy Susan and just turn the thing around? Sure, you can do that too. No problem. So

00:24:23--> 00:24:57

the idea is just so we understand that these are etiquette and manners. And when we talk about etiquette and manners, it's not a science, it's an art. It's about refining our interactions, refining our dealings, refining our behavior, even when eating even when eating. So the prophesies that I'm taught this young companion semilla what could we aminika well call me Matt, Eric, say Bismillah eat with your right hand and take from the part of the plate that is in front of you.

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

Also, we learned from this idea

00:25:01--> 00:25:05

The importance of teaching our youngsters when they are young,

00:25:07--> 00:25:44

when they are young is the best age to impart upon them, these etiquettes and these behaviors, because they will absorb it, and they will have many years of practicing it and implementing it. But if we wait until they're older, and then we come and tell them, Hey, you know, this is what you should do, it might become more difficult for them to adopt that as part of their habit and their behavior. So here is a very good lesson when it comes to Tobia when it comes to teaching and raising our children, our younger siblings, maybe we have some cousins, maybe some nephew, some nieces, when they're young, we teach them these basic etiquettes daily practices everyday they're going to eat so

00:25:44--> 00:25:55

every day they can implement Bismillah It was my right hand and eat from what is in front of you just like little sort of like his little longer it was and I'm taught this young boy here as well.

00:25:57--> 00:25:58

What if I forget

00:25:59--> 00:26:03

what to do if I forget to mention the name of Allah. So we come to the next Hadith

00:26:05--> 00:26:22

and whom equals zoom, who is the daughter of Allah? And he shatta Allahu, and hoonah Pilate Kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, either aka hadoken Fantasy or any other Quran Allah, Allah Allah para me Federico Bismillah, a widow, a winner, who were

00:26:24--> 00:27:05

the prophets of Allah, it was seldom said in this Hadith, in this narration, that if any of you is eating, and they forget to say, Bismillah, at the beginning of their meal, that's not a problem, it's okay, in the middle of their meal, they should say Bismillah and add a statement to it, which translates to Bismillah In the name of Allah at the beginning, and at the end, in the beginning at the end. So you add that phrase there with your Bismillah if you're in the middle of your meal, so these are some of the drugs that the prophet SAW or send them would make before eating, or if he forgot them in the middle of eating, In the name of Allah with the name of ally begin and end.

00:27:07--> 00:27:10

How about some of the narrations about what he would say when he finished?

00:27:12--> 00:27:52

When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would conclude his meal? We have this very from an abbey sorry Daniel hodari. Paul can Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam either for me and for me here Paul Alhamdulillah Hilary Aparna mana was Aparna Jelena Muslim in Abu Seidel Audrey narrates in this Hadith, that when the prophets of Allah sent him finished eating, he would say Alhamdulillah, he would, and made us amongst the Muslims of hamdulillah the Obama was Aparna Puja and an emissary mean, so the beginning of his meal was either welfare it links belong to God Almighty the fresh meal, he would say, go ahead, my children, you guys, go ahead, enjoy. I'm gonna finish yesterday's

00:27:52--> 00:28:14

make sure it's all done. And then I will join you for the fresh meal. That was the first thing. The second thing is he said that my father was always the last one to get up from the table. Why isn't everyone who finished eating, finish and then they go, and he would stay to gather any crumbs or food that fell on the table, he would gather all of it and he would eat it.

00:28:15--> 00:29:00

And he himself would eat it. And he would always make a dress from I forgot it. I don't want to look for it now. But he was always make a dress. And he would encourage them and he would say, have a covenant. have a relationship with the blessings of Allah have a relationship with the blessings of Allah and don't overlook them or consider them little? Don't consider them little. So the son of the scholar who's also learned in his own right, he is commenting on this. And he says, you know, we used to observe that in our youth. And we never even imagined that a day would come where we have you know any hunger or there's less food, you know, anybody who's familiar with the Levantine

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

cuisine, the cuisine of a sham Mashallah and the villa Mashallah they know how to prepare some wicked meals Mashallah.

00:29:08--> 00:29:42

But he says some Hamlet and he's narrating the story, you know, just in the past couple of years, he says Now, some panela we are seeing in our own eyes, in our own neighborhoods, people are wishing to have old bread, not fresh old, just some old bread we wish we had that. And he is remembering the teachings of his father from those days. So somehow it is it is part of being grateful to Allah subhanaw taala and look how the messenger teaches us the meal is done. Um de la Hamdan. Bin Mubarak can see the

00:29:43--> 00:29:59

Buddha. So the prophet SAW Selim is, you know, recognizing that we we want the blessings of Allah to be sustained and maintained in our lives. The only way that's going to happen is by being grateful and not being wasteful. The only way

00:30:00--> 00:30:23

That you will preserve the blessings of Allah in your life and in the life of your families is by being grateful and not by being wasteful, be grateful and don't be wasteful, then Allah will preserve it for you. Why? Because Allah promised in the Quran in Shackleton, that as he didn't account for the Inca fortune in Nairobi initially, Allah said you're grateful, guess what? You get more.

00:30:24--> 00:30:37

But if you are ungrateful and go for an Arabic sometimes you're first in disbelief and sometimes at first a lack of gratitude. then guess what? The punishment of Allah is intense. May Allah protect us from his punishment in this life in the hereafter.

00:30:38--> 00:30:47

I mean, so, that is some of the there as at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would make at the end of his meal. One more,

00:30:48--> 00:30:50

one more Hadith before we move on.

00:30:57--> 00:31:20

An American and American only Allahu Akbar Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam in Allah Allah Yoruba and he read the Quran, an oak letter oacd Bashara betta fish may do who Allah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in this video, which is authentic snedecor so here on the authority of NSF nomadic, he said the Messenger of Allah Kudo wish level

00:31:22--> 00:31:33

please let's move on to the next chapter. Those are some examples of what the prophet SAW Selim would see before and after if you're able for a little lahardee he was a lamp used to like so in the first Hadeeth

00:31:35--> 00:31:47

but I had this is my elbow Musa Ibrahim Broussard and Abby and Abdullah call Akana cannon abuse of Allah where it was sent him yeah kulu Tifa bureau Papa

00:31:48--> 00:31:49

yeah kulula

00:31:50--> 00:31:54

eropa in this Hadith, which is authentic study was

00:31:56--> 00:32:01

the companion Abdullah is narrating that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have taken

00:32:02--> 00:32:08

and wrote up and he would eat them together. So what is if?

00:32:10--> 00:32:11

Who can tell me

00:32:12--> 00:32:21

from those of you that know the Arabic language? What is a sap because there is some difference of opinion about what it is? Hmm

00:32:22--> 00:32:23

bread No.

00:32:25--> 00:32:33

All right bar close but not exactly but is like squash pumpkin. Not exactly. And

00:32:34--> 00:32:37

they in English we would say cucumber

00:32:38--> 00:32:47

but actually it's they say you know like a hole here it's it's similar to cucumber but it's not exactly I don't know if they have it. You know there's a type of cucumber that's a little bit

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

you know what,

00:32:51--> 00:33:10

what all sorts of our cucumber you guys okay with that? Tell us cucumber, Alina, any Let's be nice and simple. And to the point is very similar to cucumber. If you have Google Images, you can look up a fat boy, he would eat cucumber with rhubarb. What is record?

00:33:12--> 00:33:24

dates? What kind of date? Or actually let me rephrase that question. At what stage of the life of a date because you guys you know that dates have stages of life.

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

Huh?

00:33:27--> 00:34:02

Fresh, very good. Rule club is the word that is your job is not one particular type of date. Although now commonly if you go to like Mecca, Medina, oftentimes they refer to a certain type of date, and they call it a lot, but actually it's called Rosana. But anyways, roll club doesn't refer to a specific type of date, but it means a date that is fresh. It's recently been picked. It's still soft and squishy. And it hasn't dried. Many of us the dates we get are already dry. They're already dried. But if you have a date of Rota, it's still fresh. It's still kind of juicy player.

00:34:04--> 00:34:14

Why would the lawsuit a lot have cucumber with fresh dates? Anybody have any ideas? ripe, ripe, wet dates? Anybody have any ideas?

00:34:16--> 00:34:24

hydrating? Yes, it is hydrating. This is like some deep like food stuff like food vibes.

00:34:27--> 00:34:47

You're close one is sugary, and one is not sugary. So it kind of balances out. You're very That's correct. And you're coming close. Has anybody heard? I know if you're from the subcontinent cultural background, you'll know what I'm talking about. I don't know if I think adults have this too and other ethnic cultures.

00:34:48--> 00:34:55

Some of our elders, they describe some foods as hot and some foods as cold

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

because I'm talking about like all your life, your parents maybe or your grandpa

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

Interesting don't eat that it's a hot food don't eat that's cold. They're not talking about spice level or temperature. You guys know what I'm talking about? Anybody can explain it better than me. I have no idea what we're talking about. Anybody can explain it.

00:35:13--> 00:35:18

Yes, please. Dr sub Jean Mingo gurmeet Andy

00:35:20--> 00:35:21

Hartford Okay.

00:35:22--> 00:35:26

What is that mean? Ha Mingo you could put in the fridge you'll be ice cold but they still call it hot.

00:35:27--> 00:35:35

Uh huh. Okay, so what they're talking about is not the temperature or spice of the food but the you know what I'm talking about what

00:35:36--> 00:35:39

are you staying quiara you know exactly what we're talking about.

00:35:41--> 00:36:00

You like from the gangway you know, on the dish. So the you know, in in many of these cultures they say the food is hot because it increases your body temperature. Good. And other foods are cold because they cool down your body temperature. Okay, you guys ready for the quiz? Okay

00:36:02--> 00:36:03

bananas

00:36:08--> 00:36:11

hot or cold? Hot okay good

00:36:12--> 00:36:14

correct correct we'll

00:36:17--> 00:36:18

give you an easy one

00:36:20--> 00:36:21

watermelon

00:36:22--> 00:36:49

code easy one Mashallah. flying colors everybody's a winner. Good job shala so look how the prophets I send them would have something cold with something hot not temperature. Its body he had a lot. No people are talking about it and you know, all these things. You know, another thing so I've had a lot of that people that are like really like into nutrition and stuff and like now it's like a fad. So they're saying only eat fruits and vegetables that are in season.

00:36:51--> 00:37:02

They're saying that's good for your body. You know and because somehow that we've become so low about how numerous the blessings are there we don't have a concept of seasons anymore.

00:37:03--> 00:37:12

When any time of the year you walk into the store, you'll find what you're looking for pomegranate, you'll find it you know this dot mingle, you'll find it But

00:37:14--> 00:37:16

brother I'm not a botanist. You know.

00:37:19--> 00:37:21

I'd prefer not to call security

00:37:22--> 00:37:36

So, so simple another saying you know now that one more and we're gonna have to now they're saying that that you have to maintain eating the foods that are in season you know, some kind of luck but but that's very interesting.

00:37:37--> 00:37:57

So the Prophet cucumbers with fresh dates fresh let's play up so here's my question doctor Saab. So the Heidi says rota which are fresh, wet, ripe dates. Does that mean that once the date becomes dry and it becomes tumbled it's transitioned from warm to cold or it's still hot

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

because gonna have to research what he can you researches for us please?

00:38:04--> 00:38:11

It stays hot all the way through us brother has spoken us he looked pretty confident his answer f1

00:38:13--> 00:38:17

Oh, it's like we're okay. He's like I love it. It's like that seriously?

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

But yeah

00:38:20--> 00:38:21

having a right here tonight

00:38:23--> 00:38:55

Can we move on are you guys want to continue one more ideas from this chapter then we'll continue play him and he shared with me Europa and Avi an issue of the Allahu taala and abuse of Allah where it was Salim Khanna yet could have cool. Rob. So in this Hadith, he says the prophets I sent him would eat watermelon with fresh ripe, moist dates. Same thing watermelon is cooling has a cooling effect. The dates have a heating effect. So Lola whatever it was

00:38:57--> 00:39:02

you know so Pamela Let's read this hadith it's a little bit longer but it's so nice.

00:39:04--> 00:39:26

It doesn't have quite a bit to say it doesn't have whatever to say unAmerican bns How different is happening Musa Cora Hadith and I'm an American accent So hey, so I'll be here on ebihara rhodiola her and her pal cannon. So, either way the theremin jar will be here Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam for either Rama Rama Rama

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

So Maya drew us or our lead in Yahoo for Europe Li radica sama.

00:40:07--> 00:40:25

This narration is authentic, it is on the authority of Abu hooray Allah. He said that when the new when the harvest season would come about, and people would be picking the fruits, they would gather these fruits and they would take it to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu radiocentre

00:40:26--> 00:40:30

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would take these fruits, and he would, what would he do?

00:40:32--> 00:40:38

What did we say in the very beginning of this lesson? What was the Prophet always doing and all of his situations he made?

00:40:40--> 00:41:31

He would make a draft and what did he say? He said, Oh Allah Allahumma barik Lennar, O Allah bless us in our fruits, and Oh Allah bless us in our township in our city. And oh, Allah bless our units of measure, you know, now how do we weigh things, we use pounds, and ounces, you know, other parts they use, you know, kilograms, and grams and whatnot. In those days, their unit of measure was something called mud on saw. And Subhanallah I wish I brought with you I actually have slot and nibbly I have actually a container that we got from our teachers in Medina, that actually has a senate it has a chain of narration to the dimensions and the size of it going all the way back to

00:41:31--> 00:41:54

you know, medic, going back to human medic who took it from the grandchildren of the Sahaba the grandchildren of the Sahaba in Medina, they took it from the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So mood was like for example, the smaller unit of measure you know like a hand amount and saw was for mud right off the bat and that is a good forum for mod was a flyer

00:41:55--> 00:42:27

you know, or give or take. So, modern saw so he said, Oh Allah bless us in our fruits, bless us in our city and bless us in our mood and our SAR You know, when you come to buy something, you know, grains or tomato or dates or something, they would weigh out mode and these are the units of measure. So give us Baraka in all of this. And then look at what the prophet SAW Selim said amazing. Anybody here really like Medina? You guys like the city of Medina. Okay. You'll see why.

00:42:28--> 00:42:36

He said, Oh, Allah, Ibrahim is your servant and slave and your beloved companion and your messenger.

00:42:37--> 00:42:44

And I O Allah, am your servant and slave and your companion and your beloved messenger.

00:42:45--> 00:42:46

And Abraham

00:42:48--> 00:43:09

made to you asking you to bless Mecca, and I O Allah and making dua to you like he made to you for mecca for Medina. And in addition to it, multiply that double whatever he asked you for Mecca Give me the same and doublets

00:43:10--> 00:43:11

when mithuna Houma

00:43:13--> 00:43:35

coil, and then he would that was the end of his door app. And then he would look around and he would find the youngest child in the gathering, the youngest child you can find, and he would call that child and you would give them from the fruits you start Miss Mila, you start eating from the fruits of this season. So Pamela, what do I have Ibrahim? Is the Prophet sallallahu Sallam referring to

00:43:36--> 00:44:26

in Surah Ibrahim, Allah told us of the dura that Ibrahim made when he said about banner in the skin to me the Yeti BYD ladies are in in debate tickle Mohan or banner up masala federal either tamina necesita who la him or her Zuko, whom was Oklahoma minister Malati there are no yeshurun in this drama Abraham called up and said, Oh, Lord, I have settled my family in this valley that has no crops. Mecca is harsh it's rocky its mountain is desolate. It's not a place for farming. No crops here. In front of beside your blessing your holy house. Why did we come here Allah it's because of your house and your command. Otherwise there's no reason for us to be here. It's desolate. There's

00:44:26--> 00:44:40

nothing here for us. I mean, Debbie tickle McCallum or banner Li op masala. Oh Allah. The first thing about him asks, Oh Allah helped my family and my progeny to establish and maintain their slaughter.

00:44:41--> 00:44:59

And that's at the top of his priority list. So this is a lesson for us what should be the number one thing we are concerned about for our families are opening up masala for general ed tamina nurse Ito II him. Ibrahim is making this draft. Think of her

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

Think of romola think of business think of what happens in Mecca. They say New York never sleeps, go to Mecca,

00:45:06--> 00:45:27

federal millionaires, Oh Allah, cause the hearts of people mankind for generations and centuries to come, be drawn to them into this place where the zoo mina thammarat, and bless them, Oh Allah from all types of food and fruits

00:45:28--> 00:46:10

and all of these people that are coming, they are bringing that with them. You can't grow that in Mecca. But you go to Mecca and the marketplace you find mangoes and grapes and banana. Where's the farm in Mecca? There's no farms in Mecca. But people are coming imported everywhere. It's all coming now all walks of life. And it's not just now by the way, heritage has always been an Mecca since a time of smell. It has always been a center of commerce, a place for import export, a place for brokering and bartering and the exchange of goods and commodities for geography. determiners de la Marzocco minister Malati Allahumma Sharon so that they will be grateful

00:46:11--> 00:46:37

so that they will be grateful so that's the door either about a he made for Mecca did it come true? or lie it came true? So what are pseudo law says Ibrahim is your servant and Messenger and he's your honey close ally and companion. And Hamas I sent him says and I am also your servant and Messenger and your close ally and companion. The same drug that he made for America, I make for Medina and on top of it with it.

00:46:39--> 00:47:00

And that's why some Panama you see so many people, they have an extra emotional attachment to the city of Medina and even some handler the prices for goods are cheaper in Medina than they are in Mecca. shiraki whenever he takes our mo or hedge group, he tells them do your shopping in Medina don't do it in Mecca, right? Yeah. Do you still stand by that or you have switched sides? No.

00:47:02--> 00:47:02

Like a lot

00:47:05--> 00:47:05

of fun.

00:47:07--> 00:47:11

Have a car avacado is cold. So that wasn't his question though.

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

But as a person

00:47:17--> 00:47:54

so people have this extra attachment to Medina. And so Panama from the people that live there, I used to live there. You don't need to buy a lot of groceries. You know sometimes you go grocery shopping and your basket is full. And a week later your wife says hey, we need more. I just went last week, it's finished. Allahu Akbar. You go to Medina, you get a small amount and it lasts you one week, two weeks a panel there's about a cut in in what you get over there from the drive. But also, it's not a coincidence. This is an answer of the drought rasulillah somebody in Medina when I moved there with my with my wife, and we're getting a new apartment. So people are giving us you

00:47:54--> 00:48:31

know, things to help establish. So a brother a friend of mine, he gave me a jar of cardomom Hale, he, huh? The bottle is this big. The bottle is this big. In here at home in America, we go through three of these in probably I don't know, a year or something. Every few months, you got to get a new bottle. Three years it lasted in Medina and it was only half full. And everyday. You know, dude potty, you gotta have your massage, I have to have my lychee in my chair. I actually grind it I take my Chai seriously, every day four or five pieces of cardamom in the bottle is not finishing a hook. Well, I call that brother. I said, Man, where'd you get this stuff from? would give me more of

00:48:31--> 00:49:03

whatever it is because this stuff has a bottle cap. Somehow that's the door of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there's more blessing, there is more output in it. And look how the messenger interacts with the blessings of Allah. Like nowadays, we're like, it's like nothing. You go to the grocery store, you fill up the basket, you go home, you eat it, you know, I'm not gonna say what happens next in the process, you know, and then repeat the process next week. But look at our sort of the beginning of a harvest. He's acutely interacting and aware of what's going on around him.

00:49:05--> 00:49:29

And that's, that's amazing. That's beautiful. That is the the what allows you to appreciate what you have. This is what allows you to appreciate what you have and the generation that's growing up today. They don't know this. They're not being taught appreciation. They're being taught entitlements. Whatever you want, you get whenever you want. That's not how to sort of La taught the young ones. Look at how he taught the young people yet to be

00:49:30--> 00:49:40

the youngest of them. You start feel the impact and the blessing of the first fruit from this season. And they're cutting the mic they said time's up, because Aisha isn't

00:49:41--> 00:50:00

in a few minutes inshallah Tada. So May Allah subhana wa tada Aloma genetic Isha carrying, like a Korean. Oh lawmakers of those that are grateful those that remember you constantly in a chemical and those that are obedient to you a lot. Next time inshallah Tada, we will resume from chapter number 30
