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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Ashraf al anbiya wa l mursalin Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa been a woman tibia humby, San elijo Medina.

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

We praise Allah Subhana Allah to Allah We thank him for everything that he has blessed us with. We send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household and all his companions We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless them all and to bless every single one of us to bless the oma and to bless our offspring, those who come up to pm May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all goodness, brothers and sisters this evening, we are going to be speaking about a very great companion of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was the first from amongst the mohajir in or from amongst the children of the mahadji been to be born in Madina munawwara

00:01:02--> 00:01:48

when the Maha Judean had made hegira to Madina, munawwara none of the women were giving birth or had given birth. So a rumor had spread, that there was some magic that was done by the Jewish people so that the Maha gvn do not have offspring. And obviously, that was false. If we look at today, when certain things do not happen, the way we want it to happen immediately the week from amongst us begin to blame black magic, and they start saying this one did this and that one did that. And nine times out of 10 it is a lie. So the same applies at that time there were some people, even some of the non Muslims had started a rumor to say that there is magic that was done so that these people do

00:01:48--> 00:02:18

not have children Allahu Akbar, may Allah grant us a lesson Allah He I was weeping when I was thinking of the number of people who complain to me of how much magic This one has done and that one has done and that's why we're not getting children. And that's why, for example, our marriage is breaking and I know for a fact that that is actually a lie. Allahu Akbar. We blame innocent people. Anyway, the daughter of Abu Bakr, Siddiq or Viola and by the name of asthma, obesity, Abby Bakker.

00:02:20--> 00:02:37

She had given birth and her husband was azubi rebel are one of the 11 If you recall, we spoke about him from amongst the 10 azubi a vanilla warm, Ivanova waylaid rhodiola and the reason why we say even if the way the child who was born

00:02:39--> 00:03:30

he was related to Khadija been to Hawaii, the Aloha beach being the aunt of his father. So as zubayr yBnL, I was able to Hawaii was the nephew of Saudi Japan to Hawaii, literally Allah and her, making her the grandmother of this child who was just born in Madina munawwara just after the hijra, so as he was born, they took him to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, as did a lot of people at the time. And because he was the first from amongst the Maha geryon there was a great happiness and joy, because people now knew that all the tales and rumors of magic were actually false Subhan Allah, and so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told the father, that I will name the child with the name of his

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

grandfather. So if you search for who is the grandfather on one side, you find that we have a worm, so his name is not allowed worm there was the grandfather on the other side, a Smart Oven to be backer. So the grandfather the mother's father was Abu Bakr Siddiq.

00:03:50--> 00:04:36

Why then did they name him Abdullah? I think we would know because Booba Casa de la whose name was actually Abdullah hilarious man, we spoke about it when we spoke about him, the first of our heroes, the best of those to tread the earth after the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala Ababa Casa de la and so he was given the name Abdullah and he was also called a Baba Subhan Allah Abdullah Abu Zubaydah Allah and he was also known as Abu Bakar. That was one of his qunar the cornea, which means that the pen name they gave him one of those names was also abubaker. So he was named Abdullah Abu Zubaydah. Do you want to know how closely related he was? To the top brass from amongst the

00:04:36--> 00:04:44

muslimeen. We've already said his grandmother or the aunt of his father was Khadija favela, Guardiola. And

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

on the other hand, if you look at him, he was married to Sofia, Binti Abdul muttalib, the aunt of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, so he was related to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam that way as well Subhana Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

On one hand, he's related to Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu anhu being the grandfather. And then he's related to IE Chateau de la Mancha being the wife of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his real aunt, his mother's real sister Subhan. Allah. This is Abdullah Abu Zubaydah Allah and and do you want to know how he was related to this man they've now found over the long run. He had a wife known as Asia. Binti reminded me of fun. Later on in his life he married the daughter of the founder of YOLO and so he was connected there as well. And the cherry on the cake. He was connected to alley if not be the Allahu anhu he married the granddaughter of Alibaba Vitaly, her name was Nafisa been

00:05:44--> 00:05:56

till hasn't even alley, Allah Subhana Allah, look at how closely related he was to all these people. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us closeness to them in the AF era.

00:05:57--> 00:06:34

And may Allah unite us with them in general. I mean, my brothers and sisters, what a great man and we look at how he was born just after the hegira Some say the year of hegira Some say the following year, so either year number one or number two of hegira. But he was the first from amongst the children of the mohar gene to be born in Madina munawwara May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them all and bless us as well. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did his technique, technique, we spoke about it twice before already in this series, where as little piece of data is chewed by someone who is worth

00:06:35--> 00:07:20

chewing it in terms of character and spirituality. And then it is placed in the mouth or upon the palate of a little newborn with the idea of benefiting the child both physically by high iron and so on. And at the same time, benefiting them spiritually where it is said that inshallah they will inherit some of the good habits of the one who has done that technique. So his technique was done by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And at the same time, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told his father who was or sorry, his grandfather, who was Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Ravi, Allah and the grandfather from the mother's side, to do the event. So the sooner is as as a child is born, the first major

00:07:20--> 00:07:58

sound that the child hears as a Muslim should be the call to prayer, the call to success, the declaration of faith, and this is why the event is called To this day, in the ears of the children of the Muslim men who are born myself and yourselves, as well as our own children. May Allah subhanahu wa taala make us realize the importance of this quick note, do not delay and wait for someone to come from far away to do the other than you as a father or whoever is their present. Call out the other as the first sound that comes into the ears of this particular child. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to fulfill this.

00:07:59--> 00:08:38

Then Subhana Allah, this man as he grew up, he was a very young boy still seven years old. And amongst the group of boys, they were told, because they were born in Islam, they were told, why don't you go and pledge your allegiance to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, the others had accepted Islam at the hands of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam that was their allegiance. So the little boys, they went up to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam a group of them and they said we have come to pledge allegiance to you and it was such a cute sight so Han Allah where you have little children coming, and they like adults to pledge allegiance. So Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam chose to hold their hands

00:08:38--> 00:09:13

and take the declaration from them, that we pledge that we will follow Allah and His messenger and so on, we will not sin we will not do this and that the allegiance that was pledged to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this Abdullah Abu Zubaydah Who says I remember it right up to the end of my life. I remember this Subhana Allah when he was much older, he says, I still recall the day we were young, and we went to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam pledging, and he actually took it from us, as young as we were, generation say they were only seven years old. Subhan Allah, as soon as they had understanding, they went and they did this pledge.

00:09:14--> 00:09:58

This great young man as he grew up, he was known for his Salah, one of the most powerful things, his prayer. They say when Abdullah hypno Ramadan, started his Salah, nothing distracted him, not at all. When he would go down and record bowing position. He took so long that the bird would come and sit on his head or his back, and it would be there for a while without any movement of this man. That was the for sure. SubhanAllah and this is recorded in many of the books of history that Abdullah had neuroma. Allah who was such that the birds used to come and sit in his back when he was in ruku. With us handle up we barely say once of Hannah Bella beam and we bounced up as though there is a

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

spring somewhere down there.

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

That is pushing our head back. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah make us from those who learn a lesson from this great man. When he went back into sujood he took so much of time that people sometimes walk past and they thought perhaps this is just a pile of clothing that is here not realizing there's a human being there Institute from such a while. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us not from those who packed like a little chicken when it comes to Salah. And so Jude, this is your hub, this is your maker. So this was the man. He was also very well known for his bravery. Abdullah Abu Zubaydah Allah when he was well known for maintaining family ties. He had aunts who were the heroes

00:10:41--> 00:11:25

of the Muslim in the heroines from amongst the Muslim at those who believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala Sharia law, she was an aunt. She was a Muharram meaning a very close related, you know, relation to this man. And he constantly used to ask about them. He used to visit them, he used to make sure he fulfills their rights. So we learn a lesson from this, my brothers and sisters, we have been asked by Allah subhanho wa Taala to fulfill family ties. Sometimes we do not even know who our relatives are, how then will we be able to fulfill those relations. So the first step, find out who your relatives are. Second step, whether they are poor or rich, whether you need something from them

00:11:25--> 00:12:04

or not. Make sure you fulfill their rights for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah make it easy for us. He was a man who did not take part in the battles at the time of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam because he was under age. He was still a child. He was a few years old when Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam passed away he was 19 years old Subhana Allah, and this is something that makes it clear why he did not take part in these wars. But Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made a lot of dua for this young boy. He was related to him in many ways and related to those who are related to him as well, in so many ways, and related to his father in law abubaker Casa de la Juan in so many

00:12:04--> 00:12:12

ways, and his wife and we've mentioned it already Subhana Allah. So at the time of Abu Bakr, Siddiq, radi Allahu Allah, who was his grandfather,

00:12:13--> 00:12:55

something unique is made mention of. He was a small version of Ababa Casa de la and when you look at Abdullah Abu Zubaydah, you would see Ababa Casa de la and they looked alike, so much in similarity, one was much younger, the other was older. So later on in the life of Abdullah Abu Zubaydah, we will learn how he became known as ameerul momineen. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us unity amongst the oma. We will learn what happened in a few moments in Sharla. So he took part in the battles he took part in the conquest of Africa. He took part in the conquest of Constantinople, as well as Andalus going in towards Europe, in Spain, as a young man, and he was a very brave man, but

00:12:55--> 00:13:00

something happened at the time of Jezebel, no more Aria or the Allahu Akbar.

00:13:02--> 00:13:05

When will be soufiane are the Allahu anhu

00:13:06--> 00:13:50

passed away his son? Yes, he took over and he sent to all the people to pledge allegiance I am now the new Amir and people were quite upset. The reason why they were upset is because he did no more Alia was not known for good qualities. We will not go into details of what exactly they blamed him for, but they said he is not fit to be our leader. And his father just said when I die, my son will take over so he did not look at merit. So a lot of people came to Abdullah Abu Zubaydah Allahu anhu, who was one of those who refused to pledge allegiance to a man whom he said is not fit to lead the whole nation. So a lot of people said, Oh, Abdullah, you take the reins. So initially he refused.

00:13:51--> 00:14:18

But people pledged allegiance to him from so many different parts of the Muslim lands if I can name them, the whole of ages and Yemen and Basra and Kufa and hora son and at one stage the whole of a sham besides Damascus, they said Abdullah Abu Zubaydah is our Amir and he is the halifa. So from the year 64 hegira, right up to the year when he was killed 73 hegira Abdullah Abu Zubaydah vanilla,

00:14:19--> 00:14:31

viola Han was known as ameerul momineen. And this is why in some of the books, they talk of our economic soufiane Allah and they talk of z dibner. Maria and then they speak of Abdullah Abu Zubaydah vanilla one

00:14:33--> 00:15:00

and being those who were the believers, and who took over the hollyford of the Muslim in However, if you look at Eros Mata Lai LA is the one or one of those who confirms this yBnL Ethier Rahim Allah is one of them who confirms this, a tabari in his Tafseer also confirms this and so many other historians, but it was a major time of trial amongst the Muslim ummah. And we know there was a dispute. We have

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

made mention of it and as we have learned with us, those who are companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we leave it to Allah subhanho wa Taala we still offer them the honor of radi Allahu Allah. May Allah subhanahu wa taala. Grant us goodness, no matter what happened between them, they were better than myself and yourselves. We have no right to be judges for that Allah has appointed a whole day, Maliki ami, when we read it so many times, he's the Owner of the Day of Judgment, which means he is the judge, He will judge let him do the judging, like out of knob disease, but I hate my own law. One of the colleagues who was a very noble man of pious men at the head of the century, he

00:15:42--> 00:16:20

says that perhaps Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant Jenna to the one and forgive the other one and still grant him Jenna. So who are we to talk about them? Subhana Allah. So this man, Abdullah Abu Zubaydah, Allah and he was one of those who was based in Makkah, Tomoko Rama, and for the moment that he was considered the halifa. The base of the Muslim nation was actually Macedon, mocha Rama. And what happened? He remembered that the Prophet salallahu Salam once said that Quraysh wanted to build the cabin, according to the building of Ibrahim alayhis salam, which means it was around on one side and square on the other.

00:16:22--> 00:17:04

And so whoever would like to do that at some stage would not be wrong. So Abdullah Abu Zubaydah, Ravi Allahu anhu. He decided to build or rebuild the Kaaba, according to the plan of Ibrahim alayhis salam and the initial structure. What happened is Quraysh wanted to build it that way, but they did not have enough halaal funding. They only wanted to use halaal funding to build the house of Allah even though they were mushriks. But they knew what was wrong. And they knew when they usurped wealth and so on. You cannot use this for a good cause. May Allah help us all May Allah make our income inshallah pure, I mean, so, as Very Vanilla one or Abdullayev was debatable. The Allahu anhu later

00:17:04--> 00:17:37

on, decided to build it such that what we know as the hedger is married today, the little semicircular portion was taken into the Kaaba. But in order to get that done, it was a major issue. He got 50 from amongst the senior men at his time, to bear witness and to be there when the foundation was dug. To see that look, this is the original Foundation, they found it and they built on it, and he lifted it slightly higher than it was at the time, right up to the height that it is today. But later on, there was a man

00:17:38--> 00:18:25

who came to attack Abdullah Abu Zubaydah of the Allahu Allah and he was sent by the AMA when Abdullah melachim number one may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us and forgive them all. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson that the infighting between the Muslim men sometimes is more dangerous than the others who are fighting us from outside. Remember this. So protect your deen and protect your brotherhood. Brothers and sisters, we can have differences of opinion, it must never make us lift a finger or a hand against the other. We are brothers and sisters, we declare the Shahada remember this it is something that has caused bleeding from the beginning and it is causing

00:18:25--> 00:19:10

bleeding today because from amongst us there are those who think that difference of opinion is disallowed. This allowed which means I am the only one on earth who is right, the rest of them need the sword. If that is the case, we have learned nothing from the battles that took place where our own leaders will last on both sides were good people but the devil was bad. Remember this? People are sometimes good, but shaytan makes them fight and quarrel. May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us and grant us a lesson. So this is Abdullah Abu Zubaydah. He was faced with Elijah gebouw use of a toffee, the name of a man who has spilled the blood of so many of the companions of Muhammad

00:19:10--> 00:19:31

Sallallahu Sallam and those who followed and he spilled the blood with the instruction of those who are above him at times and sometimes without their instruction. So what he did is he surrounded Makaton, mocha Rama and something known as a min genic magenic is similar to a cannon which they had lit up a whole

00:19:32--> 00:19:46

ball of fire made with stone and so on. And they would literally catapulted into Macedon, mocha Rama, so much so that a judge of news photography was one of those who damage the Kaaba and burnt it

00:19:47--> 00:20:00

by mistake, so to speak, may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. So what happened is they surrounded mecca for a long period of time, and ameerul momineen are the ones

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

Who was the halifa at the time? Abdullah Abu Zubaydah,

00:20:05--> 00:20:15

Allah and there were a lot of people from amongst his followers who were being affected by it. And it ended in the fact that the these people walked into Mecca.

00:20:16--> 00:20:33

And may Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard as they executed this men in Mecca in the harem. May Allah forgive us May He grant a solar lesson Allah it's a very sad story. His mother a smart Binti Abu Bakr, radi Allahu Allah was alive. And

00:20:34--> 00:21:03

alhaja job news of a third coffee after having crucify this man and and Subhan Allah He mutilated the body of this man. He comes to a smart been to be back rhodiola enhances or the mother, you are the mother of such a great man. You've just executed the men. The Khalifa Abdul Malik Edna Marwan has told me that I must take good care of you and I must ensure that you are comfortable So is there anything we can do for you? Oh, my mother.

00:21:05--> 00:21:47

She says please don't ever address me as my mother. I'm not your mother Subhanallah and number two, we want nothing from you. Remember what you've done? You have spilled the blood of innocent people may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive them and us all. So this was how Abdullah Abdullah Abu Zubaydah vanilla one was killed although he was such a brilliant man like we say he was known for his Salah. On top of that he was known for his fasting. He fasted almost every other day. He was a man who was fasting and he was known for his bravery. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive them all. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. Very important note is never miss your tongue. Speaking bad

00:21:47--> 00:22:33

about any of the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam like we say, if there was a dispute among some of them later on, leave it for Allah subhanho wa Taala not mere dirty people like myself, may Allah subhanho wa Taala Forgive us, we have no right to speak about such clean people whom Allah alone knows perhaps they will be from amongst Jenna, one will be forgiven and the one who has right will be in Gemini anyway. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all goodness, the next hero we will be speaking about someone totally different. His name was a bad inhibition rhodiola han Allah surely you will Ansari, you will bedri. He was from Manila shell in Madina munawwara known as

00:22:33--> 00:23:19

from amongst the unsolved, and he was a man who accepted Islam very early. And he was known as Al Badri because he took part in the Battle of battle. So how did he accept Islam? The hero Mousavi, May, Allah and who was sent to Madina munawwara to teach them for an end to teach them Islam just prior to the hegira. So a bad evening Bishop says I used to hear him read the Koran and voila, he that Quran was so beautiful that I used to lose myself listening to most abnormal may read the Quran Subhana Allah, I used to lose myself anything happening. I wouldn't even know what was happening around me. And I heard the Quran it was so beautiful. I immediately went to most abnormal. A few

00:23:19--> 00:23:45

questions asked and I said Shahid to Allah ilaha illallah wa Mohammed Abu rasuluh I'm a witness. There is none worthy of worship besides the one who made me Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the messenger and I started learning the Quran. And I loved it so much. He was known as one of the protectors of the book because he memorized whatever was revealed immediately. This man a bad inhibition of the Allah one.

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

So

00:23:49--> 00:24:30

he was known as a person who held the Quran he used to read the Quran, often so often, that he could be heard sometimes reading it beautifully. But there was something unique about him. He says, I enjoyed more to read the Quran whilst I was in Salah. So I could be praying, and I would be reading and I would be concentrating so I would earn the reward of worship and the reward of tilava and at the same time, a reward of worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala in both ways, la Akbar. So he would start his salah and read in a low voice, but he would beautify his voice. Don't we know Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has asked us as well that when you are reading the Quran, beautifying your voice,

00:24:30--> 00:24:48

so there is a difference between saying Alhamdulillah hear of Bill Allah mean? Or Rahmani? Raheem, Maliki omit Deen, that's correct. But if you want to earn a greater reward Alhamdulillah hyrum beenleigh me in Ottawa,

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

rocking Maliki a woman de Subhan Allah Subhana Allah. Allah accepted from us

00:25:00--> 00:25:38

Voila here, we need to try men and women. We need to try to beautify our voice. Don't worry about people around you becoming this or that Subhana Allah, sometimes people are trying and they think no you know, I'm embarrassed Allah He that is the word of Allah, how can you be embarrassed about the word of Allah? If you make a mistake, someone will correct you inshallah. But be happy that you are part of the people whom the book has been given to, and you've taken it and accepted it as the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this was a bad inhibition. One day he was reading, or Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam heard a beautiful voice read for an hour. So he paused for a moment, he heard it,

00:25:39--> 00:26:21

and he asked his wife, Sharia law, is that not the voice of the bishop? And she said, Yes, it is. So he made the dua for him. Allahumma COVID, Allah who, and he was such a man he used to read Salah late at night. And he used to read it in the message of Rasulullah Salam sometimes and sometimes in his home, and Subhanallah, once he was walking out late at night in the darkness, who say diviner obey the law and this man about the bishop, the worshiper, and they both had a stick, they used to hold a stick sometimes, because, you know, there were serpents sometimes or perhaps a little insect, or a small lizard, or whatever, on the road, and sometimes perhaps just to see what there is. And

00:26:21--> 00:27:06

the Sahaba de la honam say, a miracle occurred for the two of them, what was the miracle, who say they've Nadella Han and a bad inhibition of the law. And as they're walking, the stick was shining the path it was such a dark night, but from a distance, the Sahaba could see that there are two lights coming to like lit up sticks that are walking. And as they drew closer, we saw that the two went in different ways. And both of them had their path lit yet it was a very dark night. Later on, we found out who they were about the bishop and to say, Allah and Allah lit the path for them. They were people who took very great pride in the Quran, they learnt it and they became known as the

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

people of the Quran. Subhan Allah. So this was one of the miracles that occurred in this man's life. He was 25 years old when he accepted Islam. And he was 45 years old when he was martyred in the Battle of Yama when they went to face moose, a llama Alka dab. But before we get to that, something very important to be made mention of a great man, great men.

00:27:29--> 00:28:08

The Battle of the two riccar took place and on the way back, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they had camped the night in one place. And he said, Who is going to be guarding us tonight? So immediately two people got up about the bishop says myself an American? Yes, it will be a lot of answers myself. The two of them got up. So Mohammed Salallahu Salam camped with some of his companions, and who was making sure that the enemy doesn't come. These two men abandon the Bishop of the Alon, American Yasser, Allah one. So a bad individual, the long run, he wanted to start his Salah, but he was a man who did not want to be a show off. Because obviously, there is a fine line

00:28:08--> 00:28:50

between you know, doing something for Allah subhanho wa Taala and suddenly showing off May Allah protect us all. But what happened? He tells his friend, I'm married near Sylvia Lohan. Why don't you sleep right now? Would you like to sleep now? Or later? Let's take turns one of asleep. And the other one will God. So Mr. apneic says, Okay, I'll sleep now. And I'll get up later on. He says Excellent. So he went to sleep, when he noticed his friend is now fast asleep. He said right now is my time to start my Salah. And I can start reciting. So he started his Salah, and he started reading Surah Surah alkaff. And as he's reading beautifully, he was so immersed in the recitation, so

00:28:50--> 00:29:19

immersed in it, that one man from amongst the enemies had managed to come near to them. And he noticed that the Muslims are all asleep, but someone is standing, which means someone is guarding. So he threw a spear and some duration, say an arrow. The arrow hit a bad inhibition on his shoulder. But he carried on reading his Allah Subhana Allah. And a little while later, he he took it out and he put it down without even realizing what he was doing. So panela and then another one hits him.

00:29:20--> 00:29:52

And he carried on reading his Salah, he didn't even move. And that little enemy's thinking, I wonder what's going on here. Nobody's moving. If I hit the man or have I not hit him, so a third one comes through, and the third one hits him as well. And still a bad inhibition of the allamani so immersed and then he notices, hey, something's hit me. So he pulled this thing out. He went to court, he took his time when he was in sujood. He tapped his friend because he did not want to end the Salah so quickly. He tapped his friend until American. Ilana woke up and he noticed blood.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

And he asks about the inhibition of the yellow one. Hey, what has happened. So as soon as he completes

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

Salah he says no, I was hit by some enemies fears here. But I wanted to just draw your attention to the fact that just take a look who there is perhaps. So Maria Elena says May Allah forgive you. Why didn't you wake me up when you was when you had the first one? Why didn't you actually wake me up when the first one hits you? He says well ah he Oh Amara,

00:30:25--> 00:30:28

I was in plugged in with Allah in Salah.

00:30:29--> 00:31:04

And I was reading this surah Telegraph and I was reading verses, I did not want to cut this communication between me and Allah. I had such beautiful verses they had just impacted on me and I decided I must complete this I cannot just cut it. Because I want to tell you that I am injured Why should I say that? Let me continue Subhana Allah and I was so immersed in this that by the time I noticed what had happened Subhan Allah I was already completed with that entire surah la cabana, pause for a moment. My brothers and sisters,

00:31:05--> 00:31:29

what type of concentration do we have in Salah. So I asked one of the scholars once in Madina munawwara to give me a tip. Look regarding concentration in Salah, we all complain, he told me something very interesting. He says, Take out from your mind that which is excess, because your mind is like a computer, some panela like a computer. When you have unnecessary

00:31:30--> 00:32:11

things that you have stored, even though you might have a 16 gigabyte space. So panela when you've got a lot, it slows your computer down, it starts and it starts up taking more than the few minutes that it used to when it was brand new, because there is so much excess in a sluggish and sometimes if there's a virus in there, you've had it every little while it keeps on popping up keeps on popping up. So you need to know your body and your mind is similar. When you have unnecessary things that you've engaged in in life, you will never be able to concentrate in Salah because as soon as you say Allahu Akbar, this virus keeps on cropping up everything starts coming all the unnecessary

00:32:11--> 00:32:50

things so this is why cut out unnecessary waste of time. You sitting in laughing watching movies and doing all this. It all comes back to your mind when you are in salah and you start thinking of all these dirty things may Allah safeguard us, Allah He I learned a lesson and I chose to share it with you today. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to concentrate in Salah, clear your hard drive formatted and inshallah you will be able to see that when you start your Salah. It is so quick, you might want to know why I delayed when I started this talk I paused for a few moments. Same reason. I normally record the stroke on my own phone. And today for some reason, it happened to restart so I

00:32:50--> 00:33:31

was waiting for it and it took a bit of a while May Allah forgive me and forgive us all. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us my brothers and sisters, these are our heroes. Even if we take a single lesson from every one of them, while ah here we will spend a lifetime full of joy trying to emulate and to follow the goodness that was taught by these people. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us go back to the original teachings of the deen in a way that we are calm and collected ourselves. And when others happen to interact with us they can see the calmness of the trial of following the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam May Allah accept it from us, I want to mention one

00:33:31--> 00:33:34

more thing, Subhana Allah, I've just seen it in my notes here

00:33:35--> 00:33:54

about the beneficiary of the one who was killed in the Battle of yamamah, when they went to fight musella al Qaeda, it is reported in one of the weaker generations but I'm going to make mention of it for purposes of benefit that he saw a dream The night before he was killed. And he narrated it to Abu Seidel, foodhero de la man.

00:33:55--> 00:34:36

And he told him that I saw a dream last night that the sky opened, and I was taken up and then it closed. And immediately they looked at each other and they knew that this means you're going to be martyred in this battle that we are having tomorrow. And that's exactly what happened. In fact, the battery was the same day he had seen it in the night, the next day, although this is a slightly weak narration according to some of the mohideen. But it's interesting to know that sometimes people do dream, and some dreams do come true. But with us who are so sinful Subhana Allah, every little dream, we get excited about it. Remember, Islam is not based on dreams, and not all your dreams are

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

important. If there is something of importance and you feel it's of great importance, then Subhana Allah, you may want to try to get it interpreted by a person of experience who is trustworthy and knowledgeable. But don't get too excited with these dreams. Sometimes some people their entire life is about dreams such every night they get up in the morning and they start compiling I saw this dream it means something relax.

00:35:00--> 00:35:15

More important than all that is the message of Allah the Quran and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam May Allah help us to follow that are Sol Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah homovanillic Allah Allah, Allah and Mr. hirokawa to Hoylake
