Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:00:13--> 00:00:53

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa Sallim wa barik ala Muhammad Ali Al Amina Bina Mohammed in what Allah Allah He was so happy with being a woman to be at home be a son in Elijah Medina but we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household all his companions, may Allah bless them all and May Allah bless every single one of us, and grant us all goodness brothers and sisters. This evening, we are going to go through the names of two of the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Both of them had memorized many of the Hadith or the statements of Muhammad sallallahu

00:00:53--> 00:01:37

alayhi wasallam. The first one we will be speaking about was the one who has memorized the most of the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and there is no dispute in this regard. I'm sure many of us have heard when we listen to the Hadith one abhi hora de Allahu anhu Kala Kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It is narrated by Abu hurayrah hora de Allah And may Allah be pleased with him, that he heard the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, and then we've heard so many different versions and words and so many different Hadith. This man was a powerful individuel in memory, and he was a very humble person. So let us learn more about who is Abu

00:01:37--> 00:02:03

hurayrah. Remember, the Allahu anhu means may Allah be pleased with him, so it is actually a dua. So we could comfortably say that he is a person whom we pray for the most because so many times we say abou hora de Allahu and we don't even realize that we've actually made such a powerful prayer for him. May Allah be pleased with him with them all and with us as well. I mean, his name was Abdul Rahman.

00:02:05--> 00:02:49

It is reported that he before Islam was called abducens, the worship of the sun. So when Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam met him, he said unto Abdul Rahman, you are the worship of Allah man. And from that day, obviously, he was known as Abdul Rahman, even Osaka. So where did he get the name? Abu hurayrah from when he was young, he had a little kitten that he used to play with, and he was very attached to this kitten. So his friends used to call him owner of the kitten or Abu hurayrah. In other words, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam later on at some stage called him abou here, because here is a bigger cat, so to speak. And hurayrah is a little small kitten, may Allah subhanho

00:02:49--> 00:03:30

wa Taala bless us. This was a pen name. And I hope that when we have pin names for each other, we have good names, not named like fatty and so on, which are actually quite disgusting. If you were to ask me, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us sometimes we choose names for our friends that are actually raw when it comes to meaning May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to choose the best of names. If we were to choose nicknames. Remember, a nickname is not prohibited on condition that the person you are calling likes the name. If they don't like the name, it is totally prohibited and it can become a major sin. May Allah protect us. So Abu hurayrah radi Allahu anhu.

00:03:31--> 00:04:16

There was a leader of his clan or his tribe, one of the leaders of his tribe, a dose he came from the dosi clan, one of the leaders his name was a profile economic profile of nama. He came to Makkah at one stage and the people of Quraysh told him in the early days of Islam, that don't listen to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam because he's a magician. And the minute you hear him, he will have an impact on your heart and you will start creating problems for your family and there is going to be big dispute and so on. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was busy in Makkah to macabre my reading Salah, and this man had put cotton wool in his ears because he was so concerned about

00:04:16--> 00:04:54

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam being a magician up to fail, he says I put cotton wool in my ears. And then when I was near the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala, meaning the Kaaba. He says, I heard the Quran being read by Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and I went close. And it was so sweet, so powerful, so full of meaning so correct, so accurate, that I went to Mohammed salatu salam and told him Do you know what? What is it that you have brought? So he spoke to me for a little while and immediately I told him I bear witness what you've come with is the truth. This is really the truth. So he accepted Islam and he went back to his people of dose, and he started calling them towards

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

Islam. It is reported that initially, very few people accepted Islam to members of his family.

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

And this young man Abu hurayrah rhodiola when he was a young man, and he had accepted Islam at the hands of a profile of Nakamura dosi Allah.

00:05:10--> 00:05:13

And later on just after the Battle of haber

00:05:14--> 00:05:20

Namur came to Madina, munawwara and with him was abou hora, hora de La Hoya

00:05:21--> 00:06:04

and a few others. So, he had come to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abu hora de La Hoya and who had come just after this battle of Haven, and Abu Dhabi, Allahu anhu, set with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and did not miss anything from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Every time he heard something, he would memorize it. And he was a poor man. He had no family, he had no wealth, so much so that he says, one of the miracles of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abu huraira Allah Who says I was so hungry, that I once was wishing for some food and I saw a Baba Casa de la and I asked him a question, hoping that perhaps he might say, Come home. But he didn't say

00:06:04--> 00:06:43

come home. And I asked him a question when he passed, hoping that he might say come home, but he did not say come home. And I saw Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and he told me come home. Subhana Allah. So when I went to his house, and I entered the home, I saw a little bit of milk there. And I was hoping that he would tell me drink some of this milk. But he told me he asked his family where did the milk come from? So they answered him. So he says, oh, boo hora Go and call the people have so far now the people have so far with the poor from amongst the Sahaba and Abu huraira. The Allahu says as much as I wanted the MOOC, I had to obey the instruction of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So I went

00:06:43--> 00:07:19

out, and I called the people of so far they came, and each one of them drank from that little pot, and they all had drank from the milk. And I was hoping that now the milk would come to me, but when they were finished, it went back to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he looked at me then and he says, Oh, hurayrah Have you haven't drank from this milk? He says, No, I haven't. He says drink from it. So I drank a bit. He says, drink more. I drank more. He says drink as much as you want. He says, I drank to my full until when he told me drink. I said, there is now no place here. Then he said, Okay, now you can give it to me. And that is when Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam drank a bit. And

00:07:19--> 00:07:59

Abu huraira the Allahu anhu says this was a miracle, because the milk was very little and look how all of us were quenched just by that milk Subhanallah This was Abu hurayrah Abdul Rahman Ibn Osaka, may Allah subhanho wa Taala be pleased with him and be pleased with every single one of us. So he says that once up to phylogenomic told Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam I want you to pray against my people because I call them to Islam and they kept harming they kept disagreeing. So Mohammed Salah salam, before he could say anything about what IRA says, Oh, that's the end of those, because he knew once Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam makes a prayer against those, the people of those, it's the end

00:07:59--> 00:08:41

of them. But Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam did not make a dua or supplicate against them. Rather, he said, Allahumma de dosa, Allah guide those. And believe me, they came a time when they all accepted Islam. But this was Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he was the one who did not make dua against people rather for people. And I'm sure we know of the story of tarrif when he made that Allah subhanho wa Taala guide the children, at least of the people of tarrif. So here we have Abu huraira, the Allahu anhu, one of the Lama of the Sahaba, although he only met Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, three to four years before the passing away of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, let's say approximately

00:08:41--> 00:09:20

four years. In four years, he learned so much and he memorized so much. He says the only person who could compete with me in memorization of the Hadith was Abdullah Heppner among us. And the reason is he could write, and I don't write, I had to memorize. That was the reason. So people asked him about hora, how come you have memorized so much, and you have only met Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam for a few years, whereas there were others who were there for years on end and they have not memorized as much as you have. He says that was a gift of Allah and the Tao of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says one day I was sitting with Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he said, Who is

00:09:20--> 00:10:00

going to lay their clothing here to sit and listen to what I have to say, and Allah will grant them a memory that they will never forget what I have said and he says I was the first one who took my piece of cloth and I laid it down. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all a good memory. And he says over and above that they didn't sabotage the Allahu anhu says that I was with Abu hurayrah one day, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came into the masjid. The two of us were seated with another man. So they were three in total. And as he came Mohammed salatu salam sat with us, and he looked at us and we had stopped we were making dua and asking

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

Allah when Mohammed salatu salam set in our midst, we stopped. So he looked at us and he said, carry on with what you were doing. So we said we were asking ALLAH and they continued asking so they didn't have it says, I asked Allah I asked Allah and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam kept saying, I mean, I mean, then Abu huraira, the Allahu anhu raised his hands and he asked Allah, and he says, oh, Allah, give me what these two have asked, and give me knowledge that I will never forget, meaning a memory that when I learned something I never forget. So Mohammed salatu salam said amin, and so immediately the two of them say dibny tab it says I immediately said, and what about us, grant us

00:10:38--> 00:11:21

also Yeah, Allah that which this man has asked. So Mohammed Salah Salam says, he has preceded you in this Subhana Allah meaning he said it and the amine went out for him. And this was Abu hurayrah he did not forget anything so much so that Marwan even Al hakam, who was the leader at the time, he was the governor of Medina, at one stage in the life of Abu huraira Allahu anhu. Towards the end, he wanted to test about hora de La Hoya. And so he decided, let's call him They call him and they asked him, give us Hadith. So he started reciting one after the other after the other that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said this and he said this and he said this and he said this and so many Hadith

00:11:22--> 00:12:02

and Marwan yBnL haccombe had a scribe who was writing all these Hadith and he wrote everything down. Then he told Abu huraira Okay, you can go one year later, he called Abu huraira the Allahu anhu back, and he says, Oh hora a year back, I called you and I asked you to give us Hadith. I want you to repeat the same Hadith again. And now he had his scribes listening, and Abu hurayrah Allah and he repeated the Hadith without a single blunder, not in any name, and not any difference of wording either. And that's when Marwan will attack him said, This man is the alum he is the most knowledgeable of the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Al Bukhari Rahmatullah LA,

00:12:03--> 00:12:45

the great compiler of Hadith, who has written the most correct book after the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed him with a lot of knowledge. Al Bukhari Rahim Allah says, abou hora de Allahu anhu. He had taught more than 800 different people who have narrated from him or more than 800, so panela so when you hear about hora de Allah and if you look further up the chain, you will find the names of more than 800 different people from amongst them a lot of the Sahaba so much so that the senior Sahaba the Allahu anhu used to go to him and ask him what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had said, this was Abu hurayrah de la Juan.

00:12:46--> 00:13:09

And when they asked him that, how is it that you have memorized so much he said, All of you are busy with your families, and you were busy with your businesses, and with all other things in terms of this world. I have no family, no business, I had nothing. I only used to work for a certain lady whose name was busara Binti has one of the 11 her and

00:13:10--> 00:13:50

I worked for her with the condition that the only payment I get was food for the day, that's all so I used to do some chores for her. And I used to get food that I could actually fill my belly with but I had no interest in anything else besides sitting and listening to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam so much so that the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu say abou hora de Allahu anhu was the one who used to constantly stay at Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam without even blinking his eyes. He just used to stay and he used to say the most beautiful of all Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his face would eclipse the sun. That's how bright it was. So pan Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:50--> 00:14:25

grant us goodness. So Abu huraira the Allahu anhu was a very pious person. He loved his mother a lot, but when he accepted Islam, he brought his mother along with him to Madina, munawwara and his mother did not like Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam every time Abu hurayrah the Allahu anhu said something his mother would utter bad words about Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. So one day he came crying to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he asked him What is wrong? He said, You know, I went to my mother and I called her towards Islam and the goodness of Islam and explained to her and she started saying bad things about you or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam so I asking you to

00:14:25--> 00:14:45

make a dua for her to pray for her so that she is guided Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam there and then made the draft for her by saying Oh Allah guide the mother of Abu hurayrah rhodiola and he was so delighted that he rushed home to say, hey Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has made a dua for you. Oh, my beloved mother.

00:14:46--> 00:15:00

But you know what happened when he arrived home. He noticed that the door was closed and he heard some water so as he was excusing himself to enter his own home, his mother says wait where you are. She had a bath. She came out with the

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

Good clothing of hers and she says oh boo hora. I bear witness that Allah is one and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the messenger. And he was shocked. He was so happy, delighted. He actually came out rushing back to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informing him that this is what has happened. And this was the result solely and only of the two out of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is why so many do as in supplications, that have occurred in the life of Abu huraira, the Allahu anhu, every single one of them that was for him was granted Subhana Allah, this was the man abou hora de Allah and he loved his mother so much, so much, that later on in his life,

00:15:37--> 00:16:09

he became a very important person. And he always used to say, you know, Allah has blessed me, I had nothing, I was an orphan, I had no wealth, I had no family, I had nothing at all. And I accepted Islam and came to Madina munawwara with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now I'm a married man, he married after Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam his time later on, he says, Now I have Allah has blessed me and Allah has made me an Imam. There was a stage when he was appointed as the governor of Madina, munawwara by Maria Abu sufian.

00:16:10--> 00:16:47

And when he was the governor, it did not change anything, he still used to go and chop his firewood and bring it on his back and the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu and the others of Madina, munawwara that are being used to look at him and say, This man is our governor, look at him, going to chop his own firewood and bringing it back. This was above or below. And so with his mother, It is reported that he loved his mother so much that every single time he went in or out of the house, he would go to the door of his mother's room and greet his mother As salam o Alaikum. I greet you with the peace, the greetings of peace, oh, my mother, may Allah bless Peace be upon you, and the blessings and

00:16:47--> 00:17:26

mercy of his be upon you, oh, my mother. So she would say what la como salam, oh, my son, may Allah grant you peace as well, and the mercy and blessings of Allah, then he would say, and this was every time several times a day this would happen. He would say, may Allah have mercy on you, because you looked after me since I was a child. And so she would say, and may Allah have mercy on you, because you have fulfilled my rights as an elderly parent. And this happens so many times a day. This was Abu hurayrah, Allah Subhana. Allah, He loved his mother so much. He used to greet his mother, how many of us greet our parents, how many of us make dua for them, and how many of us as parents make

00:17:26--> 00:18:06

dua for our own children? In this case, she was what we would term a widow, some might say, a single mother in the sense that she brought him up alone. And yet later on, look at the amount of prayer that he made for her Subhan Allah and she made for him as well. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to be thankful, especially when it comes to the way we treat our mothers. This was Abu hurayrah the Allahu anhu. What a great man. He thanked Allah subhanho wa Taala a lot. He was a person who used to pray the first third of the night. And then he would get up his wife to pray for the second third of the night. And then she would get him up in the last third of the night. And he

00:18:06--> 00:18:48

would pray so that in his house there was someone praying for the entire night. This was a boy or the 11 he was a man whom are one and Bill hakam tested so many times once marijuana Bill haccombe sent to him 100 dinars. And the next day Marwan will have him sent a message or came to see him and told him I made a mistake. I sent you money that was supposed to go to someone else. And they found that abou hora, the Allahu anhu. It was true that he never slept with money that that was extra that he kept. So they found he that he told me one ml hakam Look, I gave that money away to poor people yesterday in the course of Allah subhanho wa Taala as soon as I got it, but when I get my salary at

00:18:48--> 00:19:09

the end of the month, then you can take from it and cut it off and you give me the rest and the balance of my salary. So Pamela so marijuana, ml haccombe said, No, I was only testing you and it's okay. You can keep that wealth and it's yours. Allahu Akbar. May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us goodness and ease. Morrow, this Abu hurayrah de La Habra, moussaka de la and

00:19:10--> 00:19:50

he saw two men walking looking similar. One was a bit older and one was younger. So he asked the younger one, hey, Who is he to you? He said, that's my father. He says, Listen, never call your father by his first name. Out of respect. Number one, this was the advice of Abu huraira to the men never walk in front of your father, and do not sit before he is seated. So panela This means that Abu huraira Allahu anhu. Although he did not have a father because he was an orphan. He is showing the value of the parents Subhana Allah and I want to end with two stories. One is way above Ravi Allahu anhu. had once gone into the marketplace, and he saw people there in the marketplace, all

00:19:50--> 00:20:00

involved in business. And he was he told them all you people you are involved in business but you don't know the inheritance of Muhammad Salallahu alaihe salam is being distributed and you

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

People are oblivious of it. They said Where is it being distributed? They want it. So he said it's in the masjid. So they rushed into the masjid, which was very nearby. This was in Madina munawwara and they only saw people reading salah and some others were reading Quran and someone else was teaching the other what was halal and haram and so on. So they rushed back to Abu hurayrah and said, Hey, where's the inheritance you talking about? He said, You went to the masjid. They said yes. What did you find there? So they said we found someone reading Quran someone teaching it someone reading salah and someone engaged in teaching the others what halal and haram is. So he said, that is the

00:20:35--> 00:21:19

inheritance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whilst you are earning this wealth for the world, that is in fact the inheritance and that will take you into Jelena May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all is so Abu hurayrah the Allahu anhu marajuana mahakam visited him, visited him at the end of his life. So he found above the Allahu anhu making a DA and the DA was a beautiful prayer that Abu huraira the Allahu anhu made, he said, Oh Allah, I love to meet you. And I pray that you love to meet me too. And I hope it is soon. So marijuana mill hakam said what a man What a great man as he walked out, and he had taken a few steps. He heard of the death of Abu huraira the Allahu anhu

00:21:19--> 00:22:03

he passed away in the year, approximately 57 Hijri at the age of about 80 sorry 78 approximately, and He is buried in bucket May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant him Jenna and grant all of us Jenna, the next hero of ours that we are speaking about also a great narrator of hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and also a man who came from afar was Abu Musab al ashari. His name was Abdullah hibino case, Allah Shari robiola, Allah And may Allah be upon him as well. He was from Yemen. And as soon as he heard of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the time of Makkah, he came out to Makkah, and he accepted Islam with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as soon as he could

00:22:03--> 00:22:06

from amongst those who accepted Islam at the beginning.

00:22:08--> 00:22:53

And he went back to Yemen, he taught his people and he came back to Madina munawwara at the time that Jafar Ibn Abu Talib Ravi Allahu anhu, and those who had gone to Russia to Africa had come back. So some of the historians say that Abu Musab al ashari radi Allahu anhu also went to a senior. But the truth is he had gone back to his people in Yemen. And he was teaching them Islam because he came back with approximately 50 people from Yemen, and he had brought them from amongst those known as the Yin to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this man was a beautiful reciter of the Quran. he recited the Quran so beautifully, and he himself looked so handsome that people loved to hear his

00:22:53--> 00:23:27

four on one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam walked into the masjid with barreda hora de Allah. And he says Subhan Allah, we heard late at night recitation a beautiful recitation. so amazingly, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stopped and heard this man making a dua. And what was the DA the DA was to Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Allah Houma in me as Luca biani a shadow unaka Allahu La ilaha illa Anta

00:23:28--> 00:24:15

La Ilaha Illa and Allah, Allah Allah Allah and Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Mia coo coo and there was a man making dua using this name of allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam stopped and he says, Oh bowrider This is the name of Allah, that when it is used to call out to Allah, he responds, and when it is used to ask Allah He gives Subhana Allah. So what was it let me quickly repeat this. He says Allahumma me, Luca be Aneesh hadoo unaka Allahu la de la ilaha illa and Allah had a Samad Allah Villamil Allah mula wala Mia Kula who Khufu and Ahad Subhana Allah What a powerful way of calling out to Allah, O Allah, I am calling out to you, you being the

00:24:15--> 00:24:56

one whom I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship besides you Subhana Allah, you are the one Allah, you are the one and only the irresistible, the one whom there is no one similar to the one who neither begets nor does he be gotten. These are the names of Allah found in Surat Al ikhlas boo Allahu Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to call out to Him. When we call out to Allah do not just say yeah, Allah grant me this. Use some of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To call out to Allah find out what the names are, use them understand their meaning, cry to Allah and keep on repeating the drama and choose different times of the day and night, different seasons, different

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

moments, different places, and believe me, they will be a place where you're doing

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

I will be accepted a time when you do our will be accepted and the wording that you may use that Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant acceptance to May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our to us. This man was so beautiful in his recitation that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Abu Salah Shari rhodiola, one has been granted a flute from amongst the flutes that were left behind by the people of the Buddha alayhi salatu was Salam. They were known as those who had beautiful voices. So Omar Abdullah hottub radi Allahu anhu. And the other companions loved his recitation so much because of how melodious it was. They used to say, oh, Abu Musa Oh, Abu Musab al ashari. Read for us, remind

00:25:41--> 00:26:21

us about Allah and remind us about meeting with Allah. And he used to recite a few verses, so much so that one day Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the same hadith of Bora Bora the Allah and where he says, we heard this man making a dua, he says the following day, we heard again recitation of the Quran, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this recite is definitely not a person who is showing off. He's definitely not being boastful. He is calling out to Allah He is reciting for the sake of Allah, such a beautiful, melodious voice and suddenly they saw a boo Musashi, Allah and he was reading the Quran. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was listening

00:26:21--> 00:27:01

to such a beautiful recitation, and he said, This man has been granted a flute from amongst the flutes left by the family of Deadwood or the people of the old alayhi salaatu wa Salaam. And this was this beautiful man he had some qualities Abu Salah Sharia law, and he took part in so many wars, but whenever there were Muslims fighting each other, he was the furthest away he went to he said, I don't take part in anything of this. This is why he was known as the man who tried so hard to bring together I live in Vitaly Brody, Allahu anhu, and Maria, even Abby Sophia. And it is known that Abu Salah Sharia law and was one of those who tried so hard to to make them avoid this conflict that

00:27:01--> 00:27:16

they had. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us and use us also to solve people's matters, and not to make us from those who are unruly or those who create problems and disasters. This man Abou musala Sharia law and

00:27:17--> 00:28:04

something very interesting about him and I will end with this in sha Allah, where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent him with more adebiyi jabel again, to Yemen. So he was sent back to his people, or to the area close to where he came from, once again, by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam And do you know what happened? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made a powerful statement to the two of them as he as they were departing. Who were the two Abdullah have no case law and whose name was Abu Salah Shari, Allah, and why the Jebel Ali Allahu Allah and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says when you go there, but Sheila wala tuna Fira via sera wala to ashira amazing

words. He says you're going to call people to Islam. Give them good news. Do not scare them away. Do not give them harsh news. Meaning give them good news. Tell them good things. speak about good matters. Don't make them so fearful that they run away. bashira wala tuna Fira give glad tidings don't chase people away. And secondly, yes, Sera. sera make things easy for people do not make them difficult. And this is where Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it was known that whenever there was something to be done, and there was more than one way of doing it, he always chose the easier way to do it. For as long as it was not something sinful. And this is what we have been taught. So

imagine, whenever we are calling people towards Allah use good words use encouragement to not do them in a way that they run away from the dean thinking as it is, I'm going to hell. So what's the point of me being good anyway? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to call people with goodness to the towards the deen and towards this beautiful religion. This was Abu Musab ashari. We just mentioned a few of the stories that happened in his life.

And he was from amongst those who panela who passed away.

00:29:18--> 00:29:59

He passed away in the year 4200. But there is a dispute as to when exactly he passed away and whether he passed away in mud in Kufa or in Makkah. So there is a dispute or there is difference of opinion as to exactly why he passed away and when he passed away, but he was one of those Senior Companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who did not take part in the disputes amongst the Muslim in in a negative way. If anything he tried to solve matters when he heard two people were arguing or fighting, he would go to them and tell them to stop arguing and fighting because the loss would be for us as an oma not for just the two of you may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us.

00:30:00--> 00:30:36

And May He grant us the ability to resolve our matters. This is a beautiful month of Ramadan I call on us all if we have matters outstanding in our families amongst us as brothers and sisters sort them out even if it means to apologize when you are not wrong, sometimes that would sort the matter out and it would make us earn paradise because Allah subhanho wa Taala loves those who resolve matters, as we have learned from all these days that we have been speaking about the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all masala Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah humblebee Hamdi kenisha to Allah
