Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:05--> 00:00:48

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala l mursaleen. Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Vina woman Terbium, BSN in Eli ahmedinejad. We always praise Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. We thank him for everything that he has bestowed upon us. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us goodness, we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household all his companions, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless them and to bless every single one of us. My brothers and sisters this evening we will be going through the lives of two of the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with unique

00:00:48--> 00:01:37

stories, more added manageable about the law and his name was more as ebony jabel ABN AMRO Alhaji al Ansari, Allah when he was a handsome young boy still in his teens, when he met Musab neuroma, Ravi Allahu anhu, who had come into Madina, munawwara in order to teach the people of Medina the deen and so he heard the words of Islam he heard the words of goodness, he heard the words of the Koran, and he accepted Islam when he was still in his teens. He was a very handsome boy and he was extremely intelligent. So he used to sit with Musab neuroma Viola and, and he used to listen to the Quran a lot. He then went to pledge of allegiance with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam known as the

00:01:37--> 00:02:24

second pledge of Aqaba, just prior to the hijra, and this was during the time of Hajj. So he witnessed that and he pledged to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he was from amongst those that as a youngster, he had decided with a group of his friends, that all the idols that the people are worshipping, we will go out, and we will break them somehow, whether knowingly or unknowingly, now a group of young boys they decided to do something. So they started with their own family and friends who had not yet accepted Islam. And then they decided, one of the elder men known as amritanandamayi. He was known as one of the leaders or the shape of many selama. And this was a

00:02:24--> 00:03:05

tribe in Madina munawwara. So he was one of the elders of that tribe. And he had a very good looking idle, quite a big one made of wood. He used to take some perfume every day, and he used to rub it on the idol. And he used to make the idol wear clothing of silk, and so on. So he took a lot of pride in his idol, and he used to worship the idol as well through the day. So other than the jabel and a few of his friends. At night, when this man was asleep, they went into his house. And as they got into the house, they tiptoed in, they got hold of this idol, they put it on their backs, and they took it right outside where they had dug a pit, the pits where all the dirt is thrown, they threw it

00:03:05--> 00:03:50

and they ran away. So when the man got up in the morning, he saw his idol is not there. So he looked around for it. And after some time, he found it in the dirt. So he got hold of it, he cleaned it, he wiped it. And he thoroughly you know, made sure that it was clean, once again, put it back in its place. The second night, the same thing happened. Same boys came back tiptoed the third night amarula. Gemma decides No, no, no, it can't happen again. Let me give this god of mine a sword. So he hung a sword on the neck of this God. And he says, Now if someone comes to you, you better make sure that you attack them and defend yourself. SubhanAllah. So now, I'm gonna jump as old as he was

00:03:50--> 00:04:34

the third night, the same thing happened, but more other than the devil. And his friends say when we saw this, that there was now a sword, we decided to tie a dead dog that we found in that same dirt with this idol. And we left it there. So when he looked for the idol, it was now in a different place. But it was tied with a dog. He got so upset. And he looks at the idol and he says, You know, I worship you. I am you are supposed to help me and protect me. And you can't even help yourself and protect yourself. Look at this, you tied with a dog. And that's when he realized, you know what, what I'm doing is absolutely wrong. So he was one of those who says his story. And the tribute goes

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

to my other mergeable and his friends who were still quite young, because this man actually accepted Islam thereafter. So this was one of the stories related to my brother in law and when he was still a young boy, the same man. He was with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to listen carefully and repeat the Quran exactly as he heard it until he became as known known as one of the best resources.

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

Amongst the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, so Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam used to say to the other companions, if you want to learn how to read the Quran, I advise you to learn from one of the four of my companions who were they Abdullah having a Mr. Ravi Allah Han obey immunocap marotti manageable. And Salim Mola, Abu Dhabi Allahu anhu. These were those who are known as brilliant reciters they could pronounce the words correctly and recite melodiously as Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to read, they used to imitate and copy Subhana Allah, may Allah grant us the ability to recite beautiful Koran this evening we have with our students from the eighth schools and

00:05:43--> 00:06:25

we hope in sha Allah that Allah accepts it from them, and makes us also from amongst those who can memorize and recite beautifully. I'm sure many of us would have a lot of favorite reciters, whom we like to imitate and so on. The idea is to be able to read correctly, more than the imitation itself. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us so my brothers and sisters, this man became known as one of the ulama of the Sahaba of the Allahu Allah so much so that Omar will harbor the Allahu anhu says that one day I heard Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam say that when the olema are resurrected on the Day of Judgment, more audibly Jabba will be from amongst them Subhana Allah, that means a knowledgeable

00:06:25--> 00:07:08

person he had a lot of knowledge. And the Hadith says Allah motomachi Bill halali will hear from the most knowledgeable of my oma or from my oma of halal and haram is mahbubani Jebel Ali Allahu Allah. He was sent by Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam on several missions to teach people the deen to teach people Islam and the Quran and rules and regulations. One of the first missions was straight after the victory of Makkah. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam told me to stay in Mecca, and to teach some of the people Subhana Allah. He stayed for a little while and he came back and thereafter the Prophet sallallaahu salam sent him with Abu Musab Al ashari, rhodiola and Houma to Yemen. And on their way

00:07:08--> 00:07:29

there if you recall Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam gave them an instruction, you are going to teach the people the Quran and the religion bashira Allah tuna Farah wire sera wala to give good news. Don't give bad news. You know, don't Doom the people. give them hope. Subhana Allah, and then he says,

00:07:30--> 00:08:10

make things easy for them. Do not make them difficult. Imagine Subhana Allah, this was the instruction of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Who are we today to make things difficult for everyone here thinking that you know what I'm preaching the dean, may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us so that we can really promote that which is full of ease and goodness in such a beautiful way, without compromising what is right and wrong. My brothers and sisters, we ask Allah to make it easy for us to follow the goodness. So what are the many jabel about the Allahu anhu they had returned from Yemen, and he was sent back to Yemen at another stage. And this time, he was sent in order to judge

00:08:10--> 00:08:51

between the people and to teach them once again, a different place. And the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam walked with Him as He was bidding him farewell, and tells him Omar dibny Jebel, perhaps you might not see me again. Allahu Akbar, as they're walking. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, Omar, perhaps this might be the last time you see me. But my advice to you is as follows. And he gave him a whole lot of advice. From amongst the advice he asked him questions. He says, oh, man, what will you judge by when you are teaching them? What will you use? He says, I will use the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then what else?

00:08:52--> 00:09:37

So he says, If I don't find the ruling in the book of Allah, I will use your asuna meaning everything we've learned from you or Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam the traditions and if you don't find it there, then he says, then I will strive to draw rulings based on what I know from the Quran and from your teachings. Subhana Allah, what a beautiful way of wording it when Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam made a dua and he says Alhamdulillah he let the word Fatah Rasulullah rasulillah Lima Yoruba Rasulullah I thank Allah who has granted acceptance and guided the messenger of the Messenger of Allah in accordance with that. There has pleased the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala, which

00:09:37--> 00:09:45

means whatever he's told me now is very pleasing, and he is my messenger and I am the messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this was

00:09:47--> 00:09:52

a great man. It is also known that at the time of Mr. Bill viola, when

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

a letter was sent to Mr. Bill Viola and oh by the governor of a sham and he asked for help center

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

People who can come and teach the Quran. So he chose tuttavia Allahu anhu called up the five experts of the Quran at the time. Now remember, there is a difference between one who knows how to read, and one who can understand and who has deep knowledge of the meanings. There is a difference between the two. But what you need to know is that some were gifted with both Subhana Allah, you know, not every reciter is a public speaker. Not every public speaker is extremely knowledgeable. Some are blessed with more than others, and some have just been given some in terms of a gift. So we need to make use of all of these gifts. Every one is unique, and each one has the qualities of leadership, but it's

00:10:43--> 00:11:05

up to us to recognize the gift and to make use of it so more audibly, Jamal was one of the all rounders when he spoke, everyone listened to him. When he read, it was perfect recitation when he explained it was the explanation so Han Allah, this was more rW Jabba la de la one mahogany Javelin amor Ansari, Allah one. So

00:11:06--> 00:11:47

Omar Musa sobre la mano called Medina jabel Oba tabla sommet, a Buddha of Allah and obey minicab and Uber and sorry, viola and, and tells them I need to send three from amongst you. So immediately, they said, Look up, what you have is an old man, OBEY Him in the cab of the alarm, and he's quite sickly, the three of us will go. So they went, and it's reported that they started off with hymns. So they all arrived in hymns, the three of them which is in Syria at this moment, may Allah grant peace and order stability and come in Syria, I mean, and all in all other lands. I mean, so my brothers and sisters, some of the companions say in the masjid of hymns, we saw some companions of

00:11:47--> 00:12:24

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And there was a handsome man sitting in their midst, who was quiet, everyone was talking, but whenever they did not understand something, they looked at him, they asked him, and he gave such a beautiful answer, that immediately I fell in love with this man. I went in inquired, who is this man that everyone is asking? And he's only speaking when he's asked, they told me that his mother managable Subhana, Allah, Allah one. And this happened also in the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Some of the companions say that they were the outsiders. We used to come and they used to just sit and look at Mara damageable. He spoke very little, but

00:12:24--> 00:12:56

whenever anyone had a question about halal and haram and explanation, they would go to him and say, oh, Mohammed, tell us so he says, one of the people came to him and said, Yeah, Abdullah, man, and, you know, a worshipper of Allah, Who are you? What is your name? He looked at him and he says, My name is Mohammed bin Jabal May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us goodness, you know, I always think of it this way. jabel means a mountain. So he was really the son of a mountain, but he himself was an even bigger mountain. So panela in the knowledge that Allah had bestowed him with

00:12:57--> 00:13:00

the Allah one, let's take a few pills from his life.

00:13:01--> 00:13:27

This man was extremely good looking. He was well spoken. When he sat and spoke, everyone was sitting around him. If Miami Java was around, they used to like to sit near him because they knew we're going to learn something good from him. And whenever there was difference of opinion amongst them, he was the one who sorted the matter out immediately when he spoke. They said that's it. That's the ruling. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us now.

00:13:29--> 00:14:12

At the time of the the death of Omar Ibn Al Khattab rhodiola. One more added managable had passed away earlier than Amara musataha. Abdullah one and we will hear what had happened. But if you recall, Omar Abdul sobre la who was stabbed by Abdul Rahman animaljam. And after he was stabbed, he said, a very powerful statement. He was trying to appoint now a successor. He said, voila, he if more I didn't know Java was alive, the problem was solved. He was going to be my successor. SubhanAllah that's how powerful the status of the Java was rhodiola and they loved him so much Almighty, Allah who used to call him and ask him his opinion, in so many important matters, because

00:14:12--> 00:14:22

he knew this man is a wealth of knowledge. Although he was one of the anxieties he accepted Islam just before the hegira Subhana Allah at the hands of Musab Nomura Allah and

00:14:23--> 00:14:59

so one day Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam tells him and Allah He, before I say the story, after every Salah, after every form of Salah it is soon to say a Stubblefield Allah thrice and then to say Allahu Manta Salaam woman Casa La I'm sure we know this. And then to say Allah whom in me Allah Vika wushu. clinica watersmeet abetik I'm sure we know this if we don't Well, we've heard it today. And we need to revive the sooner and utter these words every single one of us needs to say this because it's the teaching of Mohammed Salah Allah

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

alayhi wa sallam. So one day more abney Jebel robiola Juan was with Mohammed salatu salam and suddenly Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam tells him Omar I love you so panela amazing Yamaha in a book. Oh my god, I love you Subhana Allah, amazing the messenger sallallahu Sallam is declaring his love for one man.

00:15:22--> 00:15:44

And he was quite young because he was in his teens when he accepted Islam. And here he could not have been more than you know, a few years later than that Subhana Allah. So he says, Oh my god, I love you. But I want to show you some good words that you should never ever leave after your follow the prayer. So Pamela, what are these words What are those all ears?

00:15:45--> 00:16:32

He says after your follow the prayer, never miss saying the following words Allahumma in me, Allah Vika wushu kirika was Neva t. So what's the meaning of these words? Oh Allah. Help me to remember you. Subhana Allah, Allah helped me to remember you. That's number one. Help me to thank you to be thankful to you. That's number two. And help me to worship you correctly. Subhan Allah, I've just read my Salah. I just said a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah Medina. Jebel comes to mind why it's his Haji. Subhana Allah. So remember monogamy Jebel the man and when you say any Allah decree know what it means. Oh Allah, help me to remember you at all times helped me to be

00:16:32--> 00:16:52

thankful to you at all times, and helped me to worship you in a good way in the correct way. May Allah subhanho wa Taala rectify our worship and make us from amongst those who are acceptable in his eyes. I mean, what are the manageable as well? It is reported that one day he was asked by Mohammed Salah Salem Omar,

00:16:54--> 00:17:19

how did you enter the morning? You know, it's an Arabic weighing way of saying okay for us, but you know, how are you? So he says, Alhamdulillah I feel like I'm a true believer. So Mohammed Salah Salaam says, and what is the truthfulness of belief? Subhana Allah, you know, you are answering I feel I'm a true believer. So he wants to know what what is that? So Allah says, when I get up every morning,

00:17:20--> 00:18:03

I think to myself that I will not see the night. And when I enter the night, I think to myself, I will not see the morning so I'm ever ready for meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala amazing. He says not only that, when I take a step, I always tell myself, I have no guarantee that I'm going to take the next step. When I'm walking, I'm conscious of every step I take, I take one and I tell myself I might not see the next one. SubhanAllah so this was one of the many jobs the man who was constantly concerned about meeting with Allah. So he says at all times, I was I hope that I was almost ready to meet with Allah subhanho wa Taala my brothers and sisters Subhan Allah, what a great lesson we have

00:18:03--> 00:18:04

from this.

00:18:05--> 00:18:47

You know, when we pass away, and we could die at any time, because that is destiny. It is predestined, it is ours, from Allah subhanho wa Taala. We don't know when, but we could die at any time. So let's be ready. At all times, the best thing we could do is ask Allah for forgiveness at all times, and have hope in his mercy. Let's go continue and see what happened tomorrow. So Rob, the Allahu anhu, one day, he was gathered with some people and advising them. So he told them, you can learn as much as you want, but your knowledge will not benefit you until you put it into practice. What beautiful advice, learn as much as you want, but your knowledge will not help you until you put

00:18:47--> 00:19:29

it into practice. And then another add on another occasion, he was speaking to a certain man, the man says, oh, man, you are a very knowledgeable man. He was known as Rama Sahaba minalima Sahaba. You are a knowledgeable man. Why don't you teach me something? He says if I teach you Will you follow it? The man says Yes, I will. So listen to the advice he gives the men. He says, You must fast. And you must also break the fast. What that means is voluntary fast. Not every day, some days you fast. Some days you don't. It means be balanced. Don't be such that you use the excuse of religion, to usurp the rights of others or even your own body is neglected and so on. And you say

00:19:29--> 00:19:59

no, I'm fasting for Allah and it's every day he says you must be balanced. You do things and you also take a rest. Then he says, fulfill prayers at night and rest sometimes, which means be balanced. You don't have to read all night, but you'd be balanced. The Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam used to say the best of deeds are those that are done regularly, even if they are very little. So learn this. Sometimes we are we feel like we are pious. So we sit with the Quran and we read so many chapters of the Quran and for another month, we don't read anything.

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

And that is read five lines a day from Hannah law, but we did every day, develop the system so that you gain closeness to Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us goodness. So he says, and I continue my advice to you,

00:20:13--> 00:20:58

you should earn, but do not earn a sin. And then he says, do not die except in the condition of submission, which means, be ready for death at all times. And be very careful. be worried about the prayer that is made against you by one whom you have oppressed. Don't oppress people. If you harm people, if they pray against you, that prayer will be accepted. You suffer in your life, you won't know why I'm suffering, but it will have been because you hurt someone and they happen to make a dua against you. Brothers and sisters, we are taught that when someone hurts us, say a good prayer for them. Don't say a bad prayer. Because that is the time the angels are saying I mean to your da Why

00:20:58--> 00:21:24

do you want to make a bad drought? someone hurt you Allah destroy him? What for? What did you gain? Okay, he was destroyed. Well done. What did you do? Nothing you achieved zero, he was gone. But instead say Oh Allah, grant him forgiveness. Make him a better person, increase goodness between us. Now you would have achieved in a very big way. So this is spirituality. This is the teaching of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Mohammed Jebel Ali Allahu anhu.

00:21:25--> 00:21:33

When death came to him, he was affected by the plague known as our own and worse, which happened in a sham.

00:21:34--> 00:22:14

When death came to him, and he was on his deathbed, he made a dua that taught us all a lesson. He says, oh, Allah, I feared you my whole life. But today, I have hope in you Subhana Allah, how's that? He says, Oh Allah, I feared you all my life, I was worried. But today, I have hope in you because my brothers and sisters at the point of death, we have no option but to have hope in the mercy of Allah, Allah. So this is a beautiful lesson, and he passed away he had such a good death. It was he was only approximately 33 years old when he passed away imagine, very young, yet they respected him before that as a great scholar of Islam, Subhana Allah, and he passed away in the year

00:22:14--> 00:22:17

18 Hijri, in the time of Allah one.

00:22:18--> 00:23:09

The next hero we will be speaking about this evening is another great man, a great scholar of Islam. He was actually a Christian monk, Subhan Allah, his name is Tamim. ebene, I was a dairy rhodiola. One time he also said that he is originally from Yemen. He comes from the pan tribe. But there was a flood that occurred in his area, which made everyone run, which means they went out of that area of Yemen. And they ended up in what we know today as Palestine. So panela. So this man was in Jerusalem. And it is reported that he settled in Bethlehem, in Bethlehem. And he became a very big priest, because some of the people became Christians, some remained on that idol worship and some

00:23:09--> 00:23:38

became Jews, and some did other things he was from amongst those who was impressed by Christianity. So he became a Christian. And he became a priest, and he became a monk. And he used to teach the people in the monastery and he did so much. He had black clothing, he wore a big turban, a big hat. And at the same time, he had a cross that was dangling, you know, from his neck. And he says, I used to teach people about Christianity. And already Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was,

00:23:39--> 00:23:55

you know, a messenger. And I didn't know. But I was very keen. I used to try and search for the original teachings of the Bible, the Old Testament, the Torah and the Injeel. And he says, One day, I had a journey to be made. So I went out.

00:23:56--> 00:24:34

And at nightfall, I was still far away. So I decided no, let me rest at this place. And I found myself in a valley where there was mountains. And for the first time, I felt so scared, because I know about gin. You know, the gym kind. I think when we talk about gym kind, some people say, Hey, don't talk about it, I won't be able to sleep. So behind Allah, don't worry. Read the last two sutras of the Quran and you will sleep in sha Allah, you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from the jinn, and even from the evil of mankind. I mean, so my brothers and sisters, he says, when I felt this, I remembered that when I was much younger, the Arabs used to say when you are scared of

00:24:35--> 00:24:59

the gene of the mountains, you must ask protection from the gene of the mountains up to today in a lot of cultures and traditions across Africa and some of the Asia, some of the Middle East, sorry, and even some of South America. I've heard that when you when there is a mountain, the people asked for protection from the God of the mountain or the jinn of the mountain. So he says, I was trembling although I myself was a monk, but I see

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

to myself

00:25:02--> 00:25:20

or although bc they had the law D which means I seek the protection of the chief gene of this particular Valley. So he says as I live down, I heard the voice Subhana Allah, the jinn spoke to him, What did they say to him? The gene says,

00:25:21--> 00:25:32

Seek the protection of Allah or men, the gene cannot help you. So he was shocked. He said, What do you mean Subhan Allah, seek the protection of Allah the gene cannot help you.

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

And he was surprised. So the gene, he says, What do you mean the gene says, there is a messenger from amongst the unlettered, who has come out in Makkah. And he has brought a book, the completion of the Old and New Testaments, it is the final testament, he has come out, we have heard it and we have accepted the message, you ask the help of Allah, over the jinn, you don't ask the help of the jinn.

00:26:01--> 00:26:39

The man was shocked. So he said, Oh, Bella, I asked the help of Allah and so on, and he slept the night and he started recalling that in his books in the testaments, he had read about this messenger who was going to come, and the description was that of Madina munawwara. So he's trying to add the two together. The following day, he got up and he went back to his area, he went straight to the chief monk. And he asked him, Look, this is what happened to me last night. He says, it is very true. There should be a messenger. It's about time he has come out and he will probably be in that area. So he says, I started gathering some of my friends, and we gathered a group of people. It was

00:26:39--> 00:27:24

the ninth year of hegira. And some Hanalei, he says, We arrived in Madina munawwara we looked at also la sala Salaam, and immediately I told him, I bear witness, you are the messenger, Allah is one there we are Subhana Allah, so who invited him to Islam was the Jin Han Allah tell me my daddy, Tamim dari Subhana, Allah Viola. And he has another famous story, which is in Sahih, Muslim. One day Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called his companions. And he then gave them a talk a lecture, and he told him, Do you know why I'm calling you? To me? My daddy has told me something that I used to tell you. And what he is telling me is something exactly accord in accordance with what I've told

00:27:24--> 00:28:06

you. So I just want you to listen to this. So to me, my daddy Robbie Allah and he narrates his story. He says, they were traveling on a boat one day and the boat was rocking. I'm going to cut the story a little bit short. The boat was rocking. They ended up on an island and they got to the island and that island they met a man of a huge man very hairy, looking like a beast. And you know, they started asking him questions and he was asking them questions. And it turned out that he said he was tired. And he says, I am the jungle. I am that the jungle, this hadith in Sahih Muslim. So he says, we started asking him about him. He says, I'm going to come and this is what I will do. I will

00:28:06--> 00:28:45

be destroying city after city but Makkah and Medina, I will not be able to get there. And has this messenger come. So they said yes, he has Subhana Allah. So now he said, Well, my time has not yet come. The time of my release has not yet come cut a long story short, they jumped onto the boat and they carried on and they returned. So when Tammy macdaddy robiola who told us to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he said Allahu Akbar, he called the people and said, Listen, this is a totally separate person altogether, who is confirming it separately. I've been telling you people about the journal and the fact that he will not come to Mecca and Medina here is confirmation of it completely

00:28:45--> 00:29:24

separately, Subhan Allah and the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu they did not need that confirmation, but it was just something that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam had intended to show them. So to me, my daddy was a man that was known for a few things. He came from Bethlehem, all the way to Madina, munawwara and he accepted Islam being one of the Christian monks. So he was the first person It is reported that he was the first person to introduce a lanten in the masjid. Before that there was no lanten they used to use little candles and a few other methods of light, you know, a little fire and so on. He was the first one who introduced a lantern number one. So remember the Lenten they didn't even

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

have a lantern at the time. He was the one who introduced it, and it was more common further up north. He brought it down with him to the south. Another thing he introduced, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to sit on a stump stump of a tree when he used to speak to the people. So to me, my daddy and I'll be alone and it is reported that he is the one who suggested the member which is made up of three stairs, so that you can sit on one, lean on one and put your feet on the other. So he is the one who then made the member because he was also a carpenter. So panel

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

Law. So to me, my daddy This is according to some of the narrations. He was part of those who made the the member and some narration say he was the one who made the member. But when you think of the member, you think of tamiment Daddy, or the Allah And may Allah subhanho wa Taala, bless us, and may He use us also to serve this Dean. So when he met Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, for the first time, he told him, that all messenger of Allah, you will be victorious upon all the lands, all the lands around us, and when you are victorious upon a certain piece of land, and he mentioned the name of a certain piece of land in a sham, then please can you give it to me, so Han Allah, and the companions

00:30:43--> 00:30:53

are sitting there, Amara, Callahan was sitting there, and he this man was a knowledgeable person, he says, when you are victorious over the lands, give a certain piece to me.

00:30:54--> 00:30:57

So it happened. It's so happened and this was up in Palestine.

00:30:58--> 00:31:36

Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said, okay, it's yours, which means if we get it, I'll give it to you. He says, Can we make a note of that? They made a note of it. So Angela, in the year 15, he at the time of the Allahu anhu. They went up into Jerusalem, they got the land, and here comes to me my daddy rhodiola and he says, this piece of land is mine. It wasn't a big piece of land, a small piece of land. So the Sahaba Allah and I'm saying who gives you the right to take the land? He says, Well, I have something from Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to prove that is mine. So Omar was ameerul momineen. He says, voila, he I'm a witness. I heard it with my own ears and I know it's his piece. This is

00:31:36--> 00:31:57

yours. Subhana Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness and ease. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us our own pieces of land. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us such that we do not concern ourselves more on the pieces of land we have in this world than that which we want to achieve in the hereafter. So may that be of greater importance. I mean,

00:31:58--> 00:32:03

my brothers and sisters, something you need to know about this man to me, my daddy, I'll be alone.

00:32:05--> 00:32:11

He used to dress himself up as though he was meeting a king of kings. Every time he read Salah.

00:32:12--> 00:32:41

He bought a cloak with 1000 Durham's and he used to wear it for Salah even at night when he was alone in his home. Everyone used to sleep he used to get up, wash himself thoroughly put on the best of clothing put on some perfume and he used to get up and say Allahu Akbar as though he is meeting the king and it is a meeting with the king. And when Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the verses yeah Bonnie danmaku Xena Takuma

00:32:43--> 00:33:23

de Mesquita JD Oh Children of Adam, beautify yourselves when it comes to the places of worship when you want to worship Allah. dress appropriately. That's a verse of the Quran. You find Tammy macdaddy radi Allahu anhu used to practice this to the tee. So much so that the companion say that he used to take pride in his dress, and he used to start his prayer. Nobody could distract him. It was a plugin with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Look at these companions, one after the other. What about us? How do we come to the masjid? How do we read Salah? I'm not going to say how, you know how Subhana Allah? May Allah help us to improve ourselves well lie, let's take pride, at least we make will do

00:33:23--> 00:33:33

correctly. We take our time you know and do things inshallah, perhaps one day, we will also be able to meet the likes of tamiment Daddy, and then in general, he passed away

00:33:36--> 00:34:20

after In fact, after the time of man up near a founder of the law and you know, he shifted back to Madina munawwara and when the founder of the Allahu anhu was murdered, Jemima daddy Ravi Allahu anhu decided to leave Madina munawwara he could not handle the the conflict anymore. And he went up to back to Philistine he stayed there, and he passed away there in the year 40 Hijri. It is reported that he used to read one most half meaning the Quran every seven days, complete every seven days for his entire life, he would complete the most half. Now let's ask ourselves, have we completed it in seven years? And I'm talking of reading and also understanding, reading is important understanding

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

is equally important. You need to know this.

00:34:24--> 00:34:59

One cannot do without the other. So May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who can complete it. If not in seven days, then at least in seven months, my brothers and sisters at least in the month of Ramadan. May Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted from us. These were some of our heroes. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all. Allah He I really appreciate I'm seeing some of my friends from the Philippines who have just come in Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you all. May Allah bless this beautiful country and the Muslim Ummah at large and help us all are sallallahu wasallam Obara, Karolina Vina Mohammed Subhana labmd Subhana Allah home ob hamitic Chateau La ilaha illa Anta
