woman FC Latasha long Melissa de la magia atossa Hello intertidal has neither she nor Salah. We begin by thanking and praising Allah, and we beseech him to shower our beloved messenger with compliments and salutations. We ask Allah to teach us that which benefits us and to allow us to benefit from what he has taught us. We ask Allah to increase us in beneficial knowledge as to what follows. We have been since the beginning of this year for those who are joining us for the first time
reading some narrations and mentioning some commentary from a book known as a Shema in
El mohammedia, which is a compilation of narrations
collected and compiled by the scholar of Hades mm mahtomedi. And he focused in this collection on narrations that describe the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the topic of Shema is the descriptive nature, the descriptive narrations of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, as opposed to something more event based, or biographical in nature, we're talking about behavior, appearances habits, and so we've been doing that the first Friday of every month, and we're a little bit about a third way through the text. In our last gathering, we talked about several chapters that discuss articles of clothing. So we talked about what is known as these are the lower waist down garments
that the prophet SAW sent him would wear. We talked about his imamat a turban of the Prophet a little longer it was said to them. We talked about some of the accessories like the ring of the prophesized alum and the sword. We talked about some of the sheath of the sword, we talked about some of the items that he would use them in the battlefield like deter the shield, and helmet, Millfield, etc. We also talked about
how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would wear his ring, it was it on which finger in which hand, we talked about some of the differences of opinion of the scholars. Related to that we also touched on some jurisprudential matters related to the ease out on pants and length of clothing and all of those different issues. So all of that has been discussed in the previous gatherings. And all of that is recorded and available for you to
check out on the machine remodeler YouTube page at your convenience or hamdulillah.
So to continue in charlotte, charlotte tonight we'll go to the next section, the next several chapters, which all deal with sort of
postures and movement in positions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that's where we left off. So hopefully if Allah gives us tofi, we'd like to cover chapters 19
and then 24 onwards, we'll save it for the next gathering because that's all dealing with food and foods that the prophesized enemies to eat and how he would eat and things that he liked to eat and some things he did not like to eat, etc. So that's where we left off. And inshallah Tada. We'll pick up from there with chapter number 19.
In ama Timothy says verbal magic if he initiated Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The chapter that discusses how the prophet SAW Selim used to walk, how would he walk, and before we begin reading the Hadith, again, this is a reminder
that we like to give each time which is notice and appreciate how observant the companions were of the prophets of Allah to send them that they are relating to us narrations describing how he would walk, that is indicative of love, and loyalty, and attachment, and observing the messenger and spending quality time with him. And it also shows the diligence and the passion that the companions had to emulate and live like the messenger so the longer it was in them, they wanted to be as similar to him as possible and they looked up to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in every single thing that he did.
And they really internalized and appreciated the words of Allah in the Quran. When Allah the Almighty in the Quran said the nakaji, Candela confy rasulillah. He was sweat and Hashanah
in the Messenger of Allah for you is a beautiful and perfect example and role model. They really internalize that in every single way.
And we mentioned from a legal perspective, you know, in the previous discussions we mentioned, is it mandatory to do things this way or that way. And we mentioned the scholarly opinions of, you know,
answering that question in the different chapters. But apart from the legal discussion of Do I have to wear this or eat that or walk like this, apart from the legal discussion, I want us to be in the mindset of appreciating the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in every single which way, and in all of his ups and downs, and days and nights, and, and all of his habits and mannerisms. That's love. And that's when you have that kind of attachment to someone, you will observe all of the minute details of their life. And studying the details of someone grows and helps you to develop and your attachment and your appreciation of someone. That's just how it is.
That's part of life. And you notice when people are really attached to someone, or some figure or some celebrity or whatnot, they know incredible details about their life. And most of it is what we call it anyway infer information that does not benefit it's actually a liability and takes up hard drive space in our brains and hearts. But when it comes to the profits that allow artists to live, this is no ordinary person. This is the Messenger of Allah that Allah chose to be our role model and guide. And therefore, we should be very interested and careful to learn all the details of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his life and we are thankful and indebted to the companions,
that they recorded and documented and the scholars who preserved and shared and collected all of these narrations, so, we can imagine and learn about our beloved messenger in all of his in all of his beautiful ways.
So, having said that, we will begin with the chapter number 19. In admittedly the mentions three narrations in this chapter and they are all very similar in nature. We will read them first in Arabic and then we will explain them in Sharma. Babu magia initiated Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for any who might be following in the text.

How does an associate of neurochir Kira definitely be an enormous Rudy and rithmetic Muslim enormous enough to debate him and be a part Pali Canon abusive alojado Cinema either amisha Tikka Tikka for an MA and help him in Sabah three narrations that you want me to be the mentions in this chapter, the first of which is on the authority of Abu Varela, Abu hurayrah, may Allah be pleased with him says,
Model A to
show you an x and a middle of su de la. He begins by saying I have not seen anything more perfect and beautiful than the Messenger of Allah.
He says cat and NEMA Shem
Shem said ngdp wedgie.
As if the brightness of the sun is shining from his face. And we mentioned in the very beginning actually the first chapter, similar narrations. Java says that he saw the Messenger of Allah we mentioned this in the first sitting, that Java saw the prophet SAW Selim at night on the night of the full moon. And he was actually sitting there just gazing upon the full moon, in all of its glory and beauty, which by the way, is something lost upon us. Because we, we we never really get to experience darkness. There's always city lights on and screens and whatnot. So when there is a full moon, it's nice, but we don't really appreciate it in its full glory.
So we were talking about this before, in the new Muslim
group, we were talking about appreciating these different times of day and night. Like, for example, we are taught, when does Vegeta begin? You know, and that's something that we never get to notice ourselves. But we are reliant upon, you know, applications and clocks and timetables, which is fine. There's nothing wrong with that on a daily basis. But once in a while, I would encourage all of you to take some time out and drive out outside of the city areas
where it's where there's very little or no light pollution. And just try and appreciate the full moon giant, appreciate the stars, appreciate watching actual dawn, not sunrise, Dawn, like when Vegeta begins, when the first sliver of light begins on the horizon, these are things that, you know, due to the way our lifestyle is, we, we really don't get to appreciate them enough, but they are beautiful, they are signs of Allah, they are creation of Allah. And Allah instructs us to be careful and vigilant of these signs, because that's what our acts of worship are determined by, we determined the timings of our acts of worship, through these different movements of these of these
creations of Allah, the sun and the moon and whatnot. So that's something that we should take some time out to re renew our appreciation of. That's just a encouragement, personal
encouragement, from me to you. So he says, that hadith of Jabba Jabba is looking at the moon. And then he saw the prophet SAW Selim come. And so he says, He did a double take, he looks at the profit. Last time he looked at the moon. And then he's like, then I decided that the prophets I sent him was more beautiful than the full moon, and his face was brighter. So there was an there was like a, we're not talking about a physical light, you know, you turn on the light switch, but we're talking about a attraction, and real, you know, illumination. And that's, of course from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his piety in his righteousness and his closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And
that is something that a believer can also develop as well, perhaps not to the same level of the prophets, I send them but there can be a illumination, in a believers face and a believers presence. There are some people who are righteous. And when I talk about piety and righteousness, we're not just talking about quantity of good deeds. It's not about quantity, but it's about a person's sincerity, the condition and the health of their spiritual heart, and also their love for Allah and the messenger and their effort to try and be close to Allah as much as they can.
An example of that, sorry to take a tangent, but I just feel it's important. The prophet SAW, I said to him, in a hadith said, a man will enter upon you He is from the people of Jenna.
And so the Sahaba are like, watching the door who's gonna come in, it's gonna be someone real special. And a man came in and he wasn't like, he wasn't anyone special.
His name is not even mentioned in the narration. Like, he was just an average community member. But the Prophet said, this is a guy from the people of Jenga. And so one of the young Sahaba went up to him and like, kind of, like, you know, didn't lie, but kind of tried to, you know, make some excuses so he can live with him in his house. You know, he's like, yeah, I really need a place to stay and stay with you. And so he keeps stayed with him at his house. And he stayed with him so he can observe him. Because he's like, in the masjid. And in town, he's not doing anything special. He must be doing something special, you know, at night in home. So he goes and pretends to be asleep, but
he's actually spying on him, not spying, you know, blameworthy, spying, but like, observing to learn from him. And he didn't do anything.
He didn't do anything special. So after three days, that campaign, he's like, Listen, man, what's like, the prophet said, you're one of the people agenda. And I've been with you for three days, you did nothing special. You didn't pray no extra to lay, you're not fasting. What are you doing? He said, I don't know. You know how exactly i attained that. But I'll tell you something that I'm careful about. I make sure that I never go to sleep and in my heart is any animosity towards any believer, I free my heart of any animosity. Anyone that has wronged me in any way I forgive them, I don't think ill of anyone else. So he's like,
walking clean, you know, light on his feet, literally, because all of these negative,
you know, feelings that we harbor and don't process and don't deal with, they end up being heavy, and they also end up being dark too.
And so this is just one example of
How to be illuminated.
So here I will hurry back to our head. And Abu hurayrah says can shrimps can mushrooms at any future? It's as if the sun is shining out of his face, or the his Salatu was salam, there's brightness there is that, you know illumination from the presence of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And then he says, he starts describing the walking again, the chapter is how did the Prophet walk? Okay, so now we get to the point of the story. He says, what led to I had an sci fi machine at the middle of July, so I sent him a boy Herrera says, you know something, I've never met anyone that had a faster pace of walking than the prophet SAW Selim. His manner of walking was fast, was speedy. He would walk fast. And he his salatu wa sallam, a Buddha describes it. He says,
to Allah, who it's as if the earth is being folded underneath his feet, as if he's like comparing and giving us an analogy. That's the the how much faster it seemed to Abu Varela. And he said, in another video on fusaro rockeries, he says, We are struggling to keep up with his pace. And the Prophet is just chilling. Like that's just his normal pace. He wasn't, you know, trying to race them. He was walking in his normal machete he.
That's his normal pace. But for everyone else, it was like a catch up game.
In the next generation.
In this narration, it has a sound authenticity, and the next generation
which has some weakness in it.
It's on the authority of
ad lib. He says, Can I do it I was often abuse of aligners, and I'm upon when I really wanted to describe the process of aligners in them. But I can either measure Topanga and Emma and help them in Sabah can help to feed for them.
He said when he used to walk and he salatu wa sallam,
he would lift his legs with vigor, his his pace, his cadence, I think is what they call it right cadence. His cadence was not you know, our stride rather, what was was strong, meaning his feet wouldn't flopping on the floor or dragging the floor or something like that he would lift his legs with with strength. And it seemed as if he was walking descending from a hill from a high place, even though he was walking on level ground. But it was the way that a person would walk if they were going downhill. Because naturally when you're walking downhill, naturally, your speed is faster gravity, all that stuff, you know, you will know how that works.
or so they say?
No, it's real.
But he's walking on level on level ground. The next narration says something very similar as an idea to be applied in Canada. So I sent him either my sciatica tech f1 camera and how to min sebab
he would walk and he would be leaning forward slightly. In his in his posture, when he was walking, there was a slight lean forward, meaning it was with energy, he was walking with energy. And it was it seemed as if he was descending from a higher elevation, even though he was walking on flat ground, play. So from here we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his blessed manner of walking was fast faster than some of the Sahaba now
it was fast, but it was appropriate and moderate for him. salatu salam. So, do we learn from this, that we should walk at a faster pace?
How do we understand these narrations, the Roma they say that this was his natural state of walking.
And in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala described how believers righteous believers should walk in sort of Oregon chapter 25 unless it
will lead in I am Shona alley. How una
mujer de Luna pero Salama believers, they walk on this earth, how when and when ignorant people address them with their ignorance. They don't waste their time with ignorance or ignorant people they say Salaam they say you know you're safe from me and they continue going about their life.
What does how soon I mean the description of walking there early enough to FC to said I'm sure not at an early hona it means moderate and it means they neither walks
Slowly, so as in a lazy manner, nor are they walking fast that is aggressive in their speed. So the LMS said, the pace of the prophet SAW Selim was fast when comparing it to some of the Sahaba. But for him, it was moderate. He could have walked faster than that, but then that would have been like fast walking for him.
Because each person has a different, moderation is not like you can't quantify and paint everyone with the same brush. So what's fast for you might be normal for me, or what's slow for me might be moderate for you, etc. But the idea is it was moderate. So the MSA, you can differentiate between moderate and fast when a person stops, you know, walk off, when they stop,
you know, they're like panting, then that is not moderate than they are exerting themselves to be at a faster pace.
I have a sort of when I read these ahaadeeth, I imagined it the way I imagined it, maybe some of you may relate to that is if any of you have traveled through some of these airports, where they have the walking, I don't know what you call it. It's like an escalator. But on.
Travel eater, that's what it's called.
It's not a hoverboard. Stop it.
Travel later. I did not know that sort of called Michelle. Okay. Now I know. So when you have these travelator, I feel really smart now, okay. Like if you're walking on just the ground, and someone's walking on the travelator, they're walking like normally, they're not like, you know, panting or exhausting themselves, but they're just like,
they pass you. That's that's how I imagined it. I'm not saying it's exactly proportional, but the Caribbean need to help imagine that that's how they'll have a felt. That's how he feels. He's like, Man, it's like it's coming from a hill. And I'm walking normally I have to exert to keep keep up with him. But this is his normal pace. It is solid to us.
Absolutely. So we mentioned in previous settings, many ahaadeeth that describes some of the mannerisms of the Prophet and definitely you see a lot of humility. And in the next chapter, when we see how he would sit, you also see many examples of humility in that as well. And in his salatu salam, we do know that the Prophet said and took long steps that his stride you know, and and was was wide, and he would lift his legs with strength, you know, cadence, and his steps were firm, and, and strong, but the prophet SAW sent him did not like to stomp the ground. So he would be gentle when he was walking. And the Prophet disliked when people would purposefully make noise. While
walking, that was not something praiseworthy. So he would walk gently. The prophets I sent him was
walking and it would seem as if he was descending from a high place, even if he wasn't, he would be slightly leaning forward in the sense that there was energy there was strength in his in his walk. It wasn't as the brother mentioned, you know, leaning back or you know, as some cultures may perceive an arrogant sort of stride. He didn't have any arrogance in his, in his manner of walking, or the his Salatu was Salam. There are some other narrations not mentioned here, that we will just touch upon is the prophets I seldom used to it comes in some other narrations, he used to like to have his companions walk beside or in front of him, he didn't like to walk, and everyone was behind
him. And that's also a sign of humility and to be inclusive, and to be part of this group with his companions not to make anyone feel left out one of our teachers in Medina, he would always get upset, when someone would walk behind him, he would grab me by the hand and say, walk next to me or walk in front, don't don't walk behind it. He didn't like that.
And so that's also, you know, just a sign of wanting to be part of the group. And because you see, sometimes people that want to make themselves look special, they will have an entourage and everyone walks behind them, you know, and so, so a person makes an entrance, and there's like, 15 people walking behind, you know, it's like a tail. Like, what do they have anything to do with you, you know, it's, you know, or sometimes people will reverse that. They will have the whole entourage enter, you know, and then they walk in. The first lesson was with his habit, it was wisdom walk, they were walking together. You know, it was neither, like, they have to, like, you know, plow
everyone out of the way for him to walk. No, nor do they have
To trail behind him and the process I sent him was humble. And he wanted us a habit to walk alongside him.
Another description that is given not in this chapter but elsewhere is the prophet SAW Salem would walk with purpose and with focus. He did not use to walk and just look and wander around looking too much. And one of the scholars he was, you know, just instructing, giving some
advice basically, that, you know, when you're walking around, don't be looking everywhere around your eye might fall upon something that will be a liability against you, you know, so, you want to be careful what you are consuming, and what you are seeing, because you may be asked about that.
So you want to be careful. The prophets I said would walk with with purpose and with focus, if you observe the prophets, I said them, I understand these narrations to describe that you would see a person walking and a man walking with purpose, they had a goal they had somewhere to be the prophet SAW sent him was not frivolous, in any of his actions or in his behavior. And he hustled out to us that um, he taught us to be careful and to be wise in how we use our time and, and where we went. Also, it is important to note that in the Quran, Allah Subhana, Allah says that on the Day of Judgment,
Yamato should already him elsina to him or at him will, Judah whom
we make no x, even Allah subhanaw taala says on the Day of Judgment, their tongues and their hands and their feet will testify against
the soul of that body, that you led us to walk to a place that was sinful, or a place that was inappropriate or unhealthy. And so the feet will actually testify against a person that this is where we because people deny, we didn't do and he didn't do that. And so their own feet will testify, actually, we walk to such and such place. So a person cannot, you know, reject the claims of their own feet. And actually, you know, it's very scary the depiction of that in the Quran, Allah says, Well, I'd only do the human image I hate to Marina. People will scream at their own limbs and say, why are you guys testifying against us? We're in this together, you're gonna get us in the
hellfire. I'm talkin Allahu la de m Takahashi. people's own limbs will speak out and they will say a lot made us speak the one who, you know, allows every thing to testify on this day all records will be straight, can can hold anything back. There is there is no oppression on that day. And so the idea is that even walking a person should be wise and careful where where they are going and for what purpose and the profits that along to sell them was someone who walked with purpose and is Salatu was set up
late. Moving on. The next chapter is interesting.
It doesn't really fit here.
babble magia Effie tapanui Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Chapter 20. The chapter regarding Dr. Nora is a type of cloth, a type of covering of the head with a cloth, the process of them would cover is here with a type of cloth.
So, the person reading this will say this should go with the previous set of chapters that talked about the clothing of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and that logically makes sense. Hello, Adam, I have not yet come across anything that explains why am I muted me the place this chapter in this particular location. But nonetheless,
you know, we will read it and assume the best of the author. It only has one narration and actually the narration is weak.
There is it is a weak narration and so it is not one that
anyone can derive any rulings from babble magic, I think takanori Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam a covering of the head with a cloth are different our use of nice apparatus and our gear that's in our lobby of new Serbia. And yes, even a ban and NSF new American pile. Canada Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam a Filipina kanessa who Sobhuza yachting
we mentioned previously at the prophets I said I'm used to put doing or oil in his hair. Do you guys remember when he mentioned that? For those that were present? We mentioned that process and would put he would take care of his hair he would groom himself regularly. We talked about the hair of the prophets I sent him how and sometimes it was long and how long it was in different times of his life sometimes down to the ear lobes. Sometimes down to above the shoulder and sometimes to the middle of the neck and sometimes it pops i said i'm also cut his hair short.
As well, it wasn't always long we talked about the beard of the profits a little longer It was a limb and the shape and the thickness and the type of hair of the prophets lie Selim, we discussed all of that previously. One of the things that Prophet was very keen upon, was grooming himself, even when his hair was longer, even though the prophet SAW Selim had a
healthy and luscious beard, it was never messy, or unkept, or unclean the prophets, I said, I'm used to wash and clean and put a good smelling perfume, and he would also put oil, you know, like conditioner, basically, what was the same purpose to moisturize to keep the hair soft, and
shiny and looking nice. And so this was something very common at that time, as a means of beautification and
care. So because sometimes there would be oil, the process and did not want his other items of clothing to get that oil on it. So this narration describes how the Prophet would wear a cloth
to basically prevent the oil from getting on the other articles of clothing.
So in this narration, he says the Messenger of Allah wore a cloth on his blessing head la salatu salam, and this cloth because of the amount of oil looked like the cloth of someone who works with oils a yet someone was always dealing with oil, it would it would be oily, again, we said this narration is weak and some of the odema said that it is not accurate. There is a lot of scholarly discussion, but remember Timothy mentions it. So we mentioned it here. There are some aspects of it that are corroborated by other narrations and so so that is is acceptable. Did the prophets I seldom exactly have that much oil that it would look like the the cloth or the the clothing of someone who
works deals in oil along with another item? Lord knows best? continuing the next chapter 21, which is more related to this
topic. Chapter 21 is Babu magic genius. 80 of astudillo.
Gene security lifecycle. So we talked earlier about how he would walk any questions about that.
Any questions about that? Anything that you can derive? What did you guys derive or extrapolate from? The description of how the process is done and walked?
Yeah. Drop it on the floor.
Not nice. It's not good. Good manner. You're not it's not good manners. Yeah. Yeah. Good. That's that's a nice observation. And actually, this is
kind of funny and embarrassing for me. I was walking with one of my teachers outside of mission Nebo. in Medina, we were in the masjid and we were exiting the masjid. For those of you that have been to Medina, we were exiting from
Oh, man, I forgot
the eastern door, the one to the east of Babylon.
Five. So we're walking out of that door. And I had my sandals with me and I and I, and I did that. Not even thinking just, you know, I pulled it from the shoe rack, and we're walking out and when we exited from the door.
I just put my shoes on. He just stood there and he looked at me. So what did you I was like, What happened? And then he's like, That's so rude. You know, you're in the mustard of the Prophet the prophet SAW Selim is His home is right there and he is buried right there. And you throw your sandals on the floor like that. Behave yourself. And I was like,
So you know that that's, you know, real lesson now is this again, when we discuss these topics?
Some people become a bit.
They look at things in a very black and white
paradigm is not impermissible. It's not sinful.
I think if our
paradigm is always what is sinful and what is permissible.
We will lose or lose out on a lot of the sweetness of behavior.
And I think this is what distinguishes
People, a lot of people do obligatory and stay away from how long? So what is it that allows people to shine? It's excellence in mannerisms. It's having a higher standard. Yes, perhaps it's not sinful. But is there a way to do it better? Of course. So, aim for that. I think that's the mindset. Yeah. Yeah. And that's the bulk of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. I mean, if you survey the bulk of the prophesized alum, he's not walking around all day saying this is hard. And this is how this isn't. But the bulk of his behavior and his actions is in Nicaragua, holyoake, in Albion, it is having a high standard of conduct and behavior, that you know what this is, this is a
beautiful way, you know, there's good and acceptable, and there's beautiful.
Just like in clothing, you can wear something that covers you. You can come in a bathrobe and say it covers I'm covered, my outline is covered, okay. Or you can come in something nice and clean and appealing to the people and
smells nice and beautiful.
Yeah. So, yeah, so definitely, we have to have that kind of higher standard of etiquette and behavior to be more refined and beautiful in Allah. Hi, Jimmy, don't you hibou Jamal, that's a that's a, like a policy that we should have another Ally's most beautiful and he loves beauty. And beauty is not just physical in things and people. But there's a lot of beauty in behavior. And in speech, and in, you know, practice, I'll just mention one thing.
I'd like to flip the script now. When we see people behaving in that way, let us also react and
support them with beauty.
Because I've seen, you know, with my own eyes, the the opposite happening, I'll share with you a story. We were in MSG at one time, and the brother is sitting and he was stretching his feet and there was a must have holder right in front of his feet. And he like we go a little bit away but in the direction of so there was a another gentleman there. And, and he came and he scolded him fiercely, to get your feet out of the house.
And what did the brothers say? It's not how long and then they started fighting. And they were you know, if no one was there to break it up, it probably would have gotten physical.
Exactly. That's what I'm saying. So two wrongs don't make a right. So So the idea is, a lot of times we want to encourage others to have a higher standard. But we do that in a really ugly way.
The Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim is to be beautiful in mannerisms, and also to guide and teach with beauty when that man spoke in Salah, because he was new to Islam, so he sneezed. And he is like hamdulillah and no one said your hammock Allah. So he's like,
what's wrong with you guys? You know, and then also haberler getting mad. So after solo, the prophet said, Who is that speaking and Salah, said me said Come here, he came to the process. I'm the Prophet told him this letter is not for talking. It's for and in fact, to her and Dora and etc. It's a specific ritual. We don't just say whatever we want in it. The man left that gathering and he said, what law he mala a two more element accidental sola. I've never had a better teacher than the Messenger of Allah. Ma, he didn't hit me. He didn't curse me. He didn't scold me. He didn't humiliate me for making a mistake. I didn't know. He just taught me and said this is what we do. And
this is what we don't do. And that was it. So there was there was, I just want to balance it up. We should have high standards of beauty in our mannerisms, but also when we see someone doing something that is not very well mannered. Let us react also with beauty as well, because two wrongs never equal the right. Yeah, for

babble magia Effie Jean Sati Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the chapter that describes how the Prophet would sit. Three narrations also in this chapter as well.
Had the Santa Clara de volute roommate called a friend of blue Muslim, or a definite Abdullah has said and that he enjoyed the tea and Pilate apne Binti McCullough and how Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam Ophelia MSgt wahoo aka el Porto fossa,

Perhaps in a cinema tonight, shall we will call this in Abdullah Ibrahim in Medina, Abu Mohammed Ansari, and what we have now we need an AVI here and JD ABC al hodari call kana Rasul Allah hisamitsu Josephine musti de esta ba ba de Silva
buy in this chapter, as we discussed previously, the prophet SAW Selim was very humble, and he embodied and he was the epitome of of humility, in all of his postures and mannerisms. You know, if someone wanted to see a practical real life example of how to be humble, and express humility, they should observe the mannerisms and habits of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even in the way that he would sit down, you can see simplicity, and humility.
And why is this important because usually
people that are in positions of power, or influence, or authority, they always have very
formal and sort of special seating arrangements. If I can put it that way, you know, whether it's a specific standard, or expectations or arrangements that have to be made, wherever this person goes, certainly, you know, they, they would never just sit on the floor, or just sit on the message or just sit on a chair or is it has to be something special and embellished and whatnot. And the prophet SAW Selim was a man of authority and nobility. No one of the equation of Allah was more noble, and he didn't need any special arrangements, he sat on the floor like everyone else set on the floor. And even as we will see in the description, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam SAT,
like everyone else, the prophet really, and his habits,
you know, took effort to not try purposefully to be different than the Sahaba.
To be, he wasn't trying to be different,
except in specific matters. And he would give guidelines, and there was a purpose and a wisdom behind that unique aspect, like in some issues of dress that we talked about previously. But generally speaking, the prophet was like his community, and like his people, and he didn't try to be different. As a matter of fact, this is something forbidden.
To try to have Shuvalov to try to be known and be different by a certain set of behaviors or dress, that this is the only way I do it is completely different from everyone else and to be, you know, popular and known for that. That's not something praiseworthy, because that's antithetical to humility and to be part of the community.
As a matter of fact, by the way, there are some narrations that mentioned
that someone would come from outside of Medina, for example,
from another city or another civilization, they would come to seek the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, and they would enter the gathering. And they would ask which one of you is the messenger is what I meant.
So that's indicative that when that person came, they couldn't distinguish between the people there.
Because in that sitting, the prophet is sitting, and he's dressed and looking like the others around him. So that tells you that the Prophet did not make an effort to stand out and be different. He stood out and he was beautiful through his character, and he was beautiful and his salatu salam, of course, but what was really prominent in the prophets I sent him was his character and his mannerisms, but just sitting down in the masjid on the floor, some people would come and they would say which one is which one is Mohammed.
That's really beautiful.
So in this chapter, we find these three narrations that describe how the prophet SAW Selim set in the first one, on the authority of ADA. Binti McCollum actually reports that she saw the Messenger of Allah in the masjid, sitting in a position that they described this position with the word portal facade. Anyone heard this word before? And
who knows what a poor facade is?
squatting? How is it?
No. Like that all the way down? Yeah, there you go. Portable slot now. So the portable slot is to basically sit in a position where your legs are up against your chest,
up against your chest.
And this Hadeeth for, you know, our academic purposes, this is a weak narration, the chain of narration for this hadith is weak. There are certain narrators in it that are weak. And there's a lot of scholarly discussion about the level of weakness of this Hadith, because some other scholars came, and they said, to sit like this is actually disliked, is not permissible. Some said disliked Some said not permissible. When law who lm to summarize the issue.
Some of the earlier Matt came and they took a moderate position. They said no to sit in this position is not impermissible, but it is impermissible to do it in Salalah.
Sometimes a person may need to sit in salt, they can't stand for whatever reason, or maybe they're doing nephila extra voluntary prayer, they want to do it sitting down, which is something that can be done if a person's tired, of course, it's better to stand if one can stand. So they may want to sit they should not sit outside, they should not sit with their knees up their legs up against their chest squatting like that. insula, so some of the roadmap came and they they they give a nuanced understanding. They said outside of Salah, it is not impermissible insult is impermissible, and some said it is disliked in general. It is not impermissible. Whether it's Allah or not. It is not
something praiseworthy. What Allahu Allah, but the Hadees over we said we mentioned for the sake of honesty, that there is weakness in the narration venire the narrator she says, paella, Binti mahana she says I saw him sitting in that position, so humble, such a humble position for someone of such nobility to sit in. And so she said I was struck and moved, you know from our for witnessing such a sight.
Play the next Hadeeth
document is under the authority of
Abdullah Abu Zaid.
He says that he saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lying flat on his back with one leg raised and resting over the other.
This narration is so here. It is authentic that their boss I sent him was laying flat on his back and one leg was raised over the other boy, we know authentically that the props are sent and laid this way.
And ahaadeeth is is
mentioned in other books of Hadeeth other collections of heady, likeable, haughty and Muslim and other collections
Can we say categorically, necessarily, it is praiseworthy to lay down in this position.
we have to be a bit nuanced. We say that this is something that goes back to what is culturally accepted amongst the people.
Let me give you an example. Some of my teachers were from Mauritania. You guys know where Mauritania is?
Northwest, Northwest Africa.
this sitting position is very normal and accepted, even in gatherings of respect and importance. So sometimes you will find a like a lesson a class does that really mean like an academic class, and the chef is laying on top of the other,
dead serious, they're not joking. But this is acceptable in that cultural setting. And no one will criticize or think anything of it, you go to some other places.
And that would be completely unacceptable
in that setting, because they would say, this is a posture for relaxation,
you know, when you want to relax, not in a lesson or in a formal gathering. So again, this is something that is contingent upon the norms, that Prophet never commanded to lay this way, he was observed laying this way, it was appropriate for that setting, and that time and place that he was in. And this is very important with a lot of these mannerisms, a person must be wise. Some people may read a narration like this on their own void of any explanation or scholarly understanding. And they say, I'm going to implement this and so they go to a place and they lay down on like, on the other. Wait, I'm just waiting for someone to tell me to get up. Someone come at me, like, Brother,
you know, please get up. And as I
hit him with that, send them bomb, you know, just bam. Bahati in your face take that. No, that's not appropriate. That's not that's not being beautiful with our manners. And so they're nmi when they talked about this, did the Prophet lay down that way? Yes, he did. But it was appropriate for that setting. And it's important for us to also, you know, be sensitive to our gatherings and be appropriate as well. But the prophet lesson and was seen laying this way, and this shows his humility, and how the prophet SAW Salem was not a person of color. He was calm and you know, in popular culture terms, you know, just like, chill at the right time and place, you know, and not not
arrogant or not stuck up or not, you know, to holier than thou to lay down when he's with his friends. And even there are narrations that Abu Bakr and Omar on earth man used to lay down this way as well when they were resting, began in emulation of the prophesized system that our beloved messenger would lead this way. And so that's that's really very nice.
The next Hadith is on the authority of Musa al Hadi you he says that the prophesized sat in the masjid. tebah be a de teba anybody knows what a diva is?
Very know, very similar to a political slop. If the bat is to raise your legs up, and to in circle your legs with your arms and hold your legs up to your chest.
Yeah, like, you know, I can't really do it on a chair. I'm a little bit
overweight, macdrive for me, but like to sit like that, but both legs right.
So that's, that's a no this also is a narration that is weak as well. There is weakness in this narration, and some of the other NMS said the Prophet disliked sitting that way in the masjid.
Then others other scholars said, well, that's when you lay on your back, sit on your backside, and lean back on your hands.
They said that is disliked. Some said that is only disliked in Joomla.
During the ultimate, so there's a lot of scholarly discussion on the nuance of that. But there is weakness in this. In this narration, the conclusion or like if we can give it a you know, summary time does not permit and we were not intending to go in great detail in this gathering. But the summary is the vast majority of our LMS said it's permissible to sit in that manner. So impermissible so long as a person's era doesn't become uncovered.
Because when you sit that way, lifting your legs, depending on what you're wearing, exactly, your legs may be uncovered. You know, and so we actually for those of you that will join us in hajj Allah or those that have joined us in hajj before or Allah
we give a very important
lesson to the brothers. Because a lot of people this is their first time wearing it head on towels. And so they may not know how to conduct themselves so as to avoid uncomfortable situations for others around them.
You remember that he deals with Lafayette on my luck's up. So we give very good instructions on how to sit and how to sleep and how to carry yourself so as to protect your
And others from uncomfortable situations. So they said sitting in a tea that is permissible, so long as your eye does not become uncovered. So a person is just careful depending on what you're wearing and where you are. To Be careful, but you are running out of time. Next chapter is Babel magic a fee
to get it Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the cushion that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would lean on would rest on
a bus of Mohammed adunni you will have the idea or a dozen is her problem. And so and it's a lot easier and see my kidney helper and jab at me somewhat. Also, like I said, I'm a techie and we said that in either sad in this first narration,
which is sound
jabiru gruesome Allah narrates that he saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam leaning on a pillow on his left side.
Leaning on a pillow on his left side,
there are other narrations that mentioned the Prophet sarson. And leaning, but not on his left side, it just mentioned that he was leaning on eight, we sat down on a pillow. So some of their inner man commented and they said, Is there a preference when sitting down to lean on a pillow on the right side or the left side? And they said, Well, it seems there is preference to lean on the left side. And actually some of the some of the teachers when they would teach the job and the kindness of dealing with a guest, they say when you have a guest offer them a pillow and put it on their left side so they can lean to their left side. They said why they said because if you present them food
or drink, or someone comes and they want to shake hands, they'll be doing all of these interactions with their, with their right hand. So if they're leaning, they can still reach with their right hand. But if you put the pillow for them on the right, you can make them get up here just from beauty to make it more comfortable for your for your guest. alojado.
Again, nothing, no laws in this regard. It's just a matter of excellence. So this narration describes the process I said I'm leaning on a pillow on his left side.

And it is mentioned in Bukhari and Muslim and many other collections of Hadith.
Viva La Abdullah mlbb Pakatan Avi Alcala Rasulullah saw Selim this narration the prophet SAW Selim reports that the prophet SAW Abu Bakar as a different person

I heard that Zoo wash. I heard that to zoo, meaning these are major sins. And the narrator says he kept on repeating it. Until we said to ourselves later who second we wish he remained quiet. Why they were feeling bad for the Messenger of Allah by how moved he was when saying this. How much it affected him to think of this house.
grave this sin, this behavior is
a shot had been the Hadith, the point of mentioning this hadith related to the chapter is to show that the Prophet was initially reclining. And then he sat up to show importance. And somehow this happened with one of my teachers one time, we were in less than of Oregon, and he was leaning on his pillow, and we were just the lesson was going on for some time. So, he was leaning, then I asked a question and the question, you know, he gave it a lot of importance. Zola, so, he sat up and he turned like and I immediately got the sense that oh, this is a big deal. And as a listener, as a listener as a student, that that change in mannerism alerted me that a this is serious now. And the
prophet SAW sent him is doing so we see that the prophets I send them is very even the nonverbal communication, very expressive with a hammer. So those around him they know this is important. This is a big deal. How is it directly related to the chapter the show that the processor was leaning, and that he set up to show importance for what he is saying, that does not mean that what was said before is not important, doesn't mean that just means that the Prophet wanted to really highlight in this instance, that particular that particular sinful behavior, we are out of time, even though we have one more chapter ahead of us, we ask Allah subhana wa tada to grant us the ability and success
