How can we get the help of Allah and his aid? To be with us in all our affairs? There's a secret behind it. You want to know it, stay with us.

00:00:41--> 00:01:24

All praise is due to Allah. We praise Him, we seek his aid and we ask his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evils of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can misguide. And whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, none can guide and I bear witness that no one has the right to be worshipped except a lot alone, who has no partners. And I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant, and His Messenger Dear viewers, salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Welcome to new episode of your show. For the sake of Allah. I am your host Mata Samad Hamidi. Today we have with us the brothers that we know Brother Mohammed and brother Abdullah Nana

00:01:24--> 00:01:45

salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. We are still dealing with the beautiful aspects of brotherhood, and how to strengthen this brotherhood, and still there are considered to be rights for the brothers on one another. Now, we can see people today, the way they deal with each other, there is less respect,

00:01:47--> 00:02:09

there is less respect amongst people, and we know from the obligations of Muslim is that he should support his brother, look after him, and be concerned with his welfare. And from this high morality, part of it, we can say is to respect your brother, and try to maintain his honor.

00:02:10--> 00:02:32

And not, for example, insult him that caused him an even psychological, maybe injury or anything, actually, this is one of the highest forms of brotherhood is that you feel your brother feels. So you don't really hurt him. You don't disrespect him, you don't ignore him.

00:02:33--> 00:03:08

And this is one of the highest forms of brotherhood, throughout the Brotherhood that we have, because sometimes we are human beings, we fall into some kind of hardship, or difficult situations, we tend to act to act roughly, or to react harshly with other people. So if we managed to maintain this brotherhood or not hurt our brothers, during these difficult times, then we have inshallah achieved a very high level of brotherhood. So with regards to I mean, aid and support what I mean,

00:03:10--> 00:03:26

sometimes we go through difficulties, and we need help, we need financial help, we need physical help. But I believe one of the most important types of help or kind of help that we need is mental help, psychological help support and aid. Okay.

00:03:27--> 00:03:28

Do you think

00:03:29--> 00:03:36

anything is more important is to be physical, I mean, physical support an aid, or mental support and aid, I believe,

00:03:37--> 00:03:39

depends on situation.

00:03:40--> 00:03:46

For example, if he needs mental help, or if he needs financial, and both are good,

00:03:47--> 00:03:56

both are valuable. And mental health is very important as well. And me personally, sometimes

00:03:58--> 00:04:22

I have a few really good when I call sometimes a brother, because I'm going through a tough period, really tough a lot of stress. And I talked to him, and I tell him, for example, a problem and discuss it together. It makes me just talking to him, even though the problem or the period didn't get better. It makes me feel better.

00:04:23--> 00:04:40

It doesn't, it's not like the solution. We still maybe didn't find the solution. But just hearing his voice and seeing that someone is there, backing me up and being there for me, is very, very nice. And we all need that as humans through. It's like the prophet SAW Selim said.

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

So love for your brother, what you love for yourself. So if I'm in any time of need or something like that thing down, I'll probably mostly very need someone who would help me out. So

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

So that I should reflect two brothers that are in need. So it's a mutual interaction you give and take. But what do you like to have, you should also give them a tour, not just like, always take the bus, it's given take interaction, we all fall in hardship, and we will need some kind of support. And I, as I said, and as it has become apparent that it's a very important aspect of our lives that we need sometimes, and mental support, we need someone to help us when we feel desperate for someone to give us hope, again, because we're all human beings. And one day, you will have to fall into that kind of dilemma or problem. And as the prophet SAW, Selim said, anyone who lets down his brother at

00:05:45--> 00:06:26

the time of need when he needs him, it doesn't have to be physical or financial need, maybe some moral need, he needs your support, so and so you let him down, then Allah will let you down at a time when you really need help. So we should observe this point. And as we have concern for brothers, we should give them that kind of support. Because this is what Islam is all about helping one another. And this is what Brotherhood is based upon, to have this love for. Imagine yourself, for example, in a situation where you lose your job, and you have a lot of financial hardship, you have a family problem, and you need someone to talk to. But you can't find anyone that you can

00:06:26--> 00:06:38

confide, confide in. Imagine that. It's a really difficult situation. And everyone one day or another, he has to fall into that shoe. It's her toy. So it's like, as the Heidi said,

00:06:40--> 00:06:46

we should be there. Because so loss of how Allah subhanaw taala would be there for us when in time of need. Yeah, it's also

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

given the Exactly.

00:06:51--> 00:07:42

Like, like you said, Chef, that when when we act like that, and we're not for our butters, and bad times, everyone becomes a victim of this system where you're like, against the world, you're alone, you're by your own. Yeah. And that's why I feel this makes like people really close because it's, it shows it proves to you that you butter is true to you. Yeah. Being with you in the bad times, not only in the good times. So it's like some brothers, sometimes they are in need. And they announce it for you and say, Yeah, come on, and help me out. I need some support in certain matter. Maybe it's financial model or anything. And but some brothers are like a bit shy to announce it. But it's

00:07:42--> 00:07:47

noticeable on them. Maybe you hear it in the voice in the face. Maybe

00:07:49--> 00:08:27

we should look out for these brothers and not leave them alone in that bad situation. Because it's part of our brotherhood. Yes, if you were in that situation, you won't like that people leave you alone. Because this is our main concern, which is to look after our brothers, I mean, be concerned with them, we should, because they are our assets. They are a treasure that we have, as we said, in this life, and it's there right upon us that we should be concerned for them, look after them. And if they fall in hardship, some people as you said I was shy. So we have to go out for them and offer our help and see what what things they need. So it happened to me once a friend of mine has started

00:08:27--> 00:08:57

his own business. I'm an employee, so I don't have experience of owning a business and things like that. And he was like, and I need one day. So I went there. And I just chatted with him as like, regular chat, things like that regular conversation, but I'm not experienced in his field. But still, some things help out. He lives a bit moved away from his depression about that. So

00:08:59--> 00:09:06

shows that you care about him. Yeah, regular conversation just helps out sometimes. And there's this other point that

00:09:07--> 00:09:24

we got to be also patient, because sometimes when better is there in the bed time? Are they going to problem? They could be a little bit maybe aggressive or they could they could shout on you. So if you know that they're going in a bad time, you should be patient you shouldn't be like

00:09:27--> 00:09:45

because you know the brother appears except if you don't know him is still maybe didn't get to know him that well so you can judge but if you know him know he's going into a bad time shouldn't react very fast. No, you should be patient and tell him it's okay. It's true. Patience is an important relationship.

00:09:47--> 00:09:48

These things out

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

matters and things like that.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

Because usually when you're in a bad time or in a bad period, sometimes you you won't act as yourself. Yeah. And they always

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

Maybe this will help but you find out the problems in hardship, he doesn't mean act as he normally does. So this means he has a problem. So this should make you ask him, how can I help you to have a problem, or sometimes you should open the conversation directly. Because he might even mean read, not like the direct way. So you should speak to him, Okay, brother, let's go and have a drink together, let's go and drink, have a cup of tea, let's sit together, then.

00:10:28--> 00:11:10

I mean, gradually, he will open up, yeah, if you are a close friend, if you are a close brother, and you show your concern for him, he will inshallah open up if he appreciates the Brotherhood. So it's part of our brotherhood that we maintain this kind of respect between one another. And that we, I mean, when we deal with our brothers, as you said, sometimes we do harshly if we are in a bad situation, we tend to react in a different way. So we should pay attention to that time. And if someone reacts to us in that way, we should be patient with him. And as I said, try to see what problem he has try to help him to the best of our ability. But if we are in that situation, we

00:11:10--> 00:11:58

should still try our best to keep that relationship that we have and not say something, sometimes you insult your brother or you swear at him, some people they have temper, there they are have volcanic temper, mean, if you really just bother him with one thing, and he has something that is keeping him busy, he would just open up as a volcano. So we don't want that we should really keep control. And it's also is the important issue, according to help out according to our capabilities, you might not reach a result for the problem that the other half but still being there and talking to him is a very important thing. It rise up You don't have to reach a

00:12:02--> 00:12:44

point. At the same time. You don't have to give him everything. Yeah. I mean, deliver him probably a calamity. Because you do according to the best of your ability and maybe a couple of days Yeah, listen to this headache from the messengers, ally and he said, You will not be able to be good to people through your money because I mean, if you give a person give this person that person you will run out of money in the Covenanters on NASA be Mr. Lee calm, you will not be able to be good to all humanity by means of your money giving giving. Well, they will run out of money. Yeah. Okay. Well, I can use that Oh, home income. Bastard. What? What will I mean, be good for you to the people? Is

00:12:44--> 00:13:14

that you? I mean, you respect them, and you give them a smile. So actually, you deal with them respectfully and you mean, you have good manners when you deal with them? This is enough, especially than giving people money. You see how Islam directs us? Maybe you can help the smile. First of all, like the professor said, like sadaqa it's a good deed in the face of your smile. And second of all, it It reflects your attitude. And usually when you have a positive attitude.

00:13:16--> 00:13:31

You have an impact on people to also be positive, to be optimistic. This one he has problems and then then he sees you like, like this. Yeah, he will. He'll feel worse. He'll be like everybody's having problems.

00:13:32--> 00:13:32

It's really

00:13:34--> 00:13:38

a variety of ways. colossal and this is a beautiful point.

00:13:40--> 00:13:41

We will stop for a few minutes.

00:13:43--> 00:13:45

Stay with us. We're coming back shortly in Sharla.

00:13:56--> 00:14:45

Love cannot choose whom He wills Subhana Allah for his mercy for his messenger ship for the revelation to be revealed. This is not for the human beings to make that decision. If a person will turn to our last panel, Alison Seeley, truthfully, asking for forgiveness, Allah subhanaw taala promised to forgive we have as Muslims a duty and that is to recite the book of Allah to ponder over the verses the words of our last panel and to act according to the diversity of last panel data encompasses everything but it who would this mercy will be for the profits of the largest and the most sent to all mankind. So the oma or the people of the profits of the largest select all mankind

00:14:45--> 00:14:55

since the time of the profits or send them till the Day of Judgment. Why waste our life without getting to know every verse in the Quran what Allah subhanaw taala wants from us

00:15:17--> 00:16:00

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Welcome back. So we are still dealing with the rights of brotherhood and things that strengthen this relationship that is for the sake of Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah. Man, you mentioned a very good point about what we can offer our brothers. I would like you to elaborate more about the same thing. I mean, in terms of some brothers, I mean, they don't have really the, they are shy. So they won't really venture to, I mean, approach a brother and tell him that I have hardship, I would love to talk to you. Unless the Brotherhood is very close. So could you elaborate more on this one?

00:16:01--> 00:16:08

I mean, usually, nowadays, you find a lot of brothers, they have

00:16:09--> 00:16:46

maybe shyness, or the the the don't like talking that much. They they say no, it's better for me to keep it to myself. And we could usually, if wish when we know him. And even when we didn't, don't know him that much. We just started to know the brother. And we just started the friendship with them. We can feel it on his voice, we can feel it. If we saw more than one day, we can see and feel that he's different that day. And we could try to get to talk to him. And I see that.

00:16:47--> 00:17:22

It's good. Also, if if he's really in a bad mood, and he has a temper, the best thing to do. So that doesn't get worse. I could tell him, okay, let's talk about it tomorrow. Well, let's talk about it. After a few. I'll leave you for a while. And we meet up after a little while so that he maybe calms down or because he's so stressed out. Every everything has its own circumstances. Yeah, you can live on for a couple of hours, living for a day, for a couple of days, maybe a week, because

00:17:24--> 00:17:48

really, he could lose his temper that could affect the the Brotherhood, it will be so it will be worse. The fact that we tried to help him made this thing worse. So it's better that we just leave some things that will, if I have free time, when I can help my brother, if not, then I'll do the things that I have to do first.

00:17:49--> 00:18:04

And then if I have no time left, then he has to find somebody else to help him. Most people now have this attitude, they think, well, it is not an obligation upon them to sacrifice for the sake of brotherhood. But no brotherhood would last really unless we sacrifice, you have to

00:18:05--> 00:18:43

mean do this kind of sacrifice. Even if you are busy. I mean, you have to do away with some of your business, some of your interests for the sake of helping your brother because will he who's more more important to you, as we we have come to know the high position of brotherhood, and that it grants us the love of our last panel to Allah grants us paradise. And that grants us to be in the shade of a loss penalty on the Day of Judgment. So these things, they we should bear them in mind. And every time your brother is in hardship, don't say, Well, if I have free time, then I would help you. It shouldn't be the case, just because it's like a form of abeta. Now, you're losing. you're

00:18:43--> 00:19:36

rushing, rushing, rushing out Allah subhanaw taala throughout the way of brotherhood. It's one form of Ibadan. It's like you're fasting. So now it's a form of our bad. Yeah. And when he talked like that you or somebody will be like, come on, fast. I don't have time for you. Or I have to show him that you're obligated. And the thing is, it's not like that. It is from deep inside the chat. You have to show that it's love. Allah has showed us that this is like a brotherhood. It's all about love. Yeah, so love is not about our obligation. I'm here just to to perform to do what Allah asked me. No, I'm here because it's totally from inside. I feel good that I'm with you. Yes.

00:19:38--> 00:19:43

According to brother he has to notice and he has he has the the ways that the profits or loss.

00:19:44--> 00:19:54

Maybe he can give a gift. You can give a smile, or the Hardy says the shareholders before we have a short break. It's like a lot of things that you can have

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

to interact with. With the brothers. It's not one thing. Always

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

But it's a lot of things throughout your relationship. Let's have a look at how the prophets Allah is having the companion.

00:20:10--> 00:20:36

One day when the messengers hold on slowly Salam was really oppressed by the disbelievers in Mecca before his law, and they really dealt with him harshly. Now aboubaker came, and he spoke to the disbelievers in a very strong way he said to them, I talked to Luna Rajan and Nicola be a logical person because he's saying, My Lord is Allah. And the disbelief is that at that time, they were really plotting against the prophets the lowest

00:20:37--> 00:21:01

to harm him. So Abu Bakr put himself in that position to defend the messenger so loud, I think it was send them and he got really hurt they, one of them one of the disbelievers was hitting boubakeur hard on his face, to the extent that abubaker lost consciousness. And the narrator of the Hadith says that you couldn't tell the face of aboubaker teachers disappeared because of how hard they hit him on his face. And

00:21:03--> 00:21:14

he went in a coma and after some time he woke up. The first thing he said when he woke up what happened to the Messenger of Allah lives straight away, so he's not getting for itself is getting for his

00:21:16--> 00:21:42

then episode. That's how much love was between this hub? Yeah. love and sacrifice. Yeah, yeah. And we saw how the prophets have allowed him at the time of Mecca. When he said to the Muslims, at the time, sort of after they wanted to fight the battles better. Were the professor's alum, hadn't made his mind up to go to the battle to fight the disbelievers. They said to the Muslims, well, I'm asking your advice.

00:21:43--> 00:21:46

I'm asking your opinion, what do you think? So one of the

00:21:49--> 00:22:30

he said, O Messenger of Allah, it seems that you mean us you want us to talk to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Yes, see, even the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he wants that support from the believers. So he said, O Messenger of Allah, we have you, you have come to us, and we believed in you, and we gave you are covenant our beta. And we believe everything you bring from Allah is the truth. And we helped you, and we support you. And we will be behind you, whatever you do, will be will follow you will do whatever you command. So do whatever Allah subhanaw taala commands you to do, we are with you. Even if you cross the sea, we will follow you. And we are patient at the time

00:22:30--> 00:22:55

of war. And we are brave warriors. And we know about war. So go to whatever Allah subhanaw taala commanded to do in your life, you if we face our enemy, we don't hate to do that. And shallow, you will see from us the things that will make you happy and content that we will sacrifice for the sake of Islam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, salaam most became very happy and the narrator of the Hadith says that his face became radiant.

00:22:56--> 00:23:38

Because of the thing that he had from the companion, you see the handle that is a very beautiful thing and support this moral support. And he said, I'll give you the glad tidings the messengers also, let me sing to the queen, I give you the glad tidings, because Allah has given me one of these to either the caravan, or to win the battle to defeat the disbelievers. And that was exactly what happened. So you see how it really made them stronger. Another accident or incident that I can recall, on the process of lowest dilemma, the Battle of better was supplicating to Allah, to grant them victory, and to support them over the disbelievers. And he said a lot of fuel these people

00:23:39--> 00:23:49

referring to the Muslims, if you make them defeated, then you will not be worshipped again. And he was supplicating to Allah subhanaw taala asking his help and praying to Him,

00:23:50--> 00:24:05

one of the great believers, great companions bukata, he came to the prophet SAW Allah 70 said, O Messenger of Allah, Allah will not let you down, a low enough let you down, and we will be with you in sha Allah, so

00:24:06--> 00:24:47

shall we will see from us the things that you will like at the time of war, and was said that he fought like Never mind ever for any man never ever fought in a battle during the Battle of better so it was called the night of the Battle of battle. It was given that honor, because he really fought and these beautiful words that he gave to the messengers to Los Alamos, he made the Prophet come down and become more content and more confident in the victory for Allah subhana wa Tada. So we need to show this kind of attitude towards our brothers. Sometimes, we see one of our brothers really in a very bad situation. I mean, maybe he has some family problems. Maybe he needs someone to talk to,

00:24:47--> 00:25:00

we should always offer our help to our brothers and show them at least even I mean, you're showing your brother that I really care for you and I'm there for you. This is enough. You can imagine the confidence

00:25:00--> 00:25:29

He has and you can imagine that. But if every time your brother feels in hardship, he finds it difficult to approach you, or if he approached you a couple of times, and you told him, oh, you showed him Is it? It is a burden upon me, well, I'm busy, but I'll give you this time. Well, you know, I'm doing certain things, but because you're my brother, but he keeps nagging up on him and showing him that, well, you're giving me some hard time. Next time, he won't come back to you. So

00:25:30--> 00:25:33

it's like letting him down at the time of need.

00:25:34--> 00:26:07

But as you have said that, the Sahaba reacted back to the Prophet that he would support him. Because he was in fact, the leader of them. But still, he was close to them as a friend, and as a as a brotherhood. So it's not like being a leader is above and he gives up all this and things like that and teach them Islam. No, it's like being a friend with them gathering around interacting and things like that. So that kind of thing makes you accept, to learn from others. Yeah.

00:26:08--> 00:26:28

Wonderful, Mashallah. concept of leadership, the true concept of leadership. It's not like some people think that we should just give orders to people. No, no, it's a teamwork. That does, yeah, bravo. And that's what the prophet SAW some, even though he's the Messenger of Allah. And

00:26:29--> 00:26:48

we can reflect on the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when he said, we're Cornwall, Eva De La Jolla, and be the servants of Allah brothers to one another. Imagine if we achieve this mean, you won't really feel the time of hardship, the time where you feel low, and your spirits go down.

00:26:49--> 00:27:09

You won't feel that because you have your brothers next to you. Yes, they are ready to help you. They're there. They are there for you. And the people have done here, they do it today, they do it to each other, what we are the ones who really should demonstrate that and have it among ourselves, so that we care for our brothers and we support them, and we help them and we don't forget the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he says

00:27:10--> 00:27:54

Villa, Madame Abu fionna, he and Allah is helping the servant as long as he's helping his brothers. As long as he's helping his brother, this is a very important thing, and something that we can act upon straightaway. And we should check ourselves. How do we behave towards our brothers? Do we really show them support and aid and help? Do we really do that? Or we just say that as a lip service with our own with our tongues without actions, and if we only say this with our tongues without adding the opponent, then we should review our brotherhood and review our email because we know email and brotherhood are related. are related. There's no perfect Eman without real

00:27:54--> 00:27:58

brotherhood. So it affects and brotherhood strengthens our Amen.

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

Brothers.

00:28:02--> 00:28:39

Yeah, what does brothers mean? It's, they're, they help one another. They care for one another. They love for their brothers, but they love for their own selves. Now hamdulillah jela will act upon this beautiful etiquette to show moral support our brothers and help them and support them, and assure them at the time of distress was colossal automakers from those brothers who understand this obligation and act upon it. Let's say to our guest is Aquila halen, all of us I say Jacques Lacan for being with us. Until we meet next time, I leave you in the protection of Allah subhanho wa Taala was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
