Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam, wa barik ala Nabi ramatuelle houda Mohamed el amin, ala alihi wa sahbihi been upon hearing a woman tabea home Bay San elijo Medina whereby
we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala for everything he has given us, we thank him. And at the same time we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to grant us increase in goodness and to protect us from evil. 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 to accept from us the fasts that we've been engaging in, as well as the Salah, the tarawih, all the extra acts of worship in the beautiful month of Ramadan. And to help us to follow this through even after the month of Ramadan. I mean, my brothers and sisters the final in the series, getting to know
the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam may Allah be pleased with them. This evening we are speaking about two of the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The first one shed the dibner house, Ebenezer bit Al hazaragi Al Ansari. He was a great companion of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a young boy at the time when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam arrived in Madina munawwara so shuddha dibner ours is the son of ours ibni dabit, who is the brother of his son, Ebony tabet. About the Allahu anhu has served me tabet was one of the poets of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we will hear who the other poets as well a little bit later in
Sharla so Oh, Sidney tabet, who is the father of the hero that we are speaking about today, should dad who was he had accepted Islam at the hands of most abnormal robiola? One this man was such a great companion of Mohammed salatu salam Musab Muhammad, he shifted to Madina munawwara by the instruction of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. To teach the message of Islam in a way that so many people accepted Islam at his hands, and today he is known whenever we speak of those who were the first to accept Islam in Madina, munawwara the name that comes up Mousavi Romero, viola Han, and this is why it is one of the great practices of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If we were
to also go out to little cities and countries and so on, and to live in their midst in order to teach them the deen in a way that Subhan Allah it will be written next to our name the day we die, that this person has made an effort in a far of society far off community. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to learn from the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the way he sent out his messengers to teach or should I say his companions to teach the people in different cities and towns all over the peninsula. So
I will submit arbitraje Allahu anhu accepted Islam very early, and something happened upon the hegira.
He accepted Islam at the hands of Musab neuroma and he was from amongst those who pledged the second allegiance of Aqaba during the period of Hajj just prior to the hegira with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam in Mina, it was known as Al acaba to Sania the pledge of Aqaba the second one. So, later on when the hegira occurred, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. what he had done is he fostered the relationship of brotherhood between the people who had come from Mecca known as the Maha Jeannine, and the people who are from Madina munawwara known as the answer. So who was brought forth as a brother of shed dad, even though I was his father. So Oh, Sydney Sabbath was paired with
a man of near a friend of your lover I know. And why was that so unique? It was unique because it reminded me of the Allahu anhu was married to the daughter of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Rukia Binti Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah be pleased with her. So this was a very great virtue of Sabbath NEOs, or should I say, oh, Sydney tabet Don't be alone. It was a great virtue because he happened to be so close to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. So his son said Dad, learned from Earth man of near fun a lot, and he became similar to Earth man up near a fan in his worship. We all know about this man up near a fan of the Allahu anhu. He was a very pious man. He used to
read the Quran a lot. He was in Salah a lot. He used to constantly be in the worry that he has, perhaps displeased Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he would protect himself from anything that would displease Allah subhanho wa Taala. So shut down the house as a young boy learned from this man, a friend of your loved one, and at the same time, he was very close to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam because it was the same family
Emily that was looking after the daughter of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Rokia, Binti Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But sadly, she passed away when everyone had gone out for the Battle of Bader. And it is reported that Oh, Sidney Talbot was martyred in the Battle of ahead. So his son was known as a person who took after his father.
And sugar daddy knows about the alcohol, a great, a great man, he learned a lot. He used to teach as much as he could. And he was a very pious person, he read a lot of Salah, and one or two of the good qualities that we can make mention of here, although they were all good qualities, but the outstanding qualities of his one of them that are made mention of or that is made mention of when he used to try to sleep at night, he could not fall off to sleep immediately. He used to find it very difficult to fall off to sleep. And the reason is, he used to worry about the fire of jahannam. And he used to say, How can my eyes close? When I'm concerned that if I were to die, Where will I go?
Will I go to Jenna will I go to jahannam when I know about the fire, and I know about how hot it is and how the punishment is, and I've heard all about it, I cannot sleep my eyes don't close, I cannot rest. And so a little while later, he would get up and read Salah, and sometimes he would continue reading Salah until the time of fudger set in and then fudger would be read and the day would begin so panela so he was a man who found it difficult to sleep in the evening. And you know, when we find it difficult to sleep, what do we do? I don't even want to go towards answering the question. You know, may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us find it difficult to sleep some people go and watch
your movie, some people start playing games, some people have nothing better to do but to entertain themselves with little clips of this and that and you know, busy on their phones and so on here is a companion when he couldn't sleep. He engaged in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala through Salah May Allah subhanho wa Taala strengthen us. So this was shuddha dibujos rhodiola one. At the same time, he was known for two things blessed with both knowledge and wisdom. So his companions those who knew him later on in his life, they used to say many people have knowledge. And some people have wisdom, but very few people have both knowledge and wisdom and shed Daddy Knows how the
Allahu anhu was one of them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us both knowledge as well as wisdom. Now at the time of honorable katabi Allahu anhu. If you recall, there was a companion known as say the pyramidal Juma he wrote the Allahu anhu he spoke about him if you recall the name. He was granted the task of being the governor of hymns. But he excused himself and he came back he did not want to be a governor. So in his place shut down the house was put by Omar Abdullah sobre la and, and it is reported that the people of hims loved him a lot. And they really obeyed his instruction as the governor of hims. And he stayed there for quite a long time. But when this man up near a
founder of the Allahu anhu was killed, was martyred. Shut down. Most of the Allahu anhu decided to pack up everything and to go back to Madina munawwara so he packed up, he saw the Phaeton you know the trials and the difficulties. The term fitna refers to difficult times. And it also refers to trials and calamities and tests. That is the meaning of the term fitna. So when he saw these difficult times, he decided to go back to Madina munawwara. So he went back to Madina, munawwara, but sadly, the fitna commenced in another way. And when he saw that it's becoming, you know, something that is now getting to eat the core and the roots, and it is starting to create disaster
and difference amongst good people. He told his family, you know, what, it's not our place to involve and interfere in this type of difficulty trial. We'd rather pack our bags and go somewhere. So he packed some of his belongings. He took his family members, and he went to live in Palestine. And he passed away in Palestine. She had dad who saw the law and one final story we want to hear about your dad knows about the law. And
he It is reported that he always loved to hear about Makkah and Medina. And he always wanted to go there anyone who was going he always loved to join them if he could, but sometimes he couldn't. But on one occasion, there was a group of youngsters who were coming from a sham and heading towards Makoto kurama going for Hajj.
So as they passed Philistine, they met this man she had died in the house. In fact, they passed through a huge tent, and they saw it and they said, Wow, we wonder what's going on here. They had not known shadows. They had not seen him before. But they were wondering what was going on.
As they got closer, they met a man. And the man was smiling at them happily saying, you know, you're more than welcome and so on and welcome these young men, and asked them where they're going. And they said, No, we are going to Makkah and we are intending to go for Hajj. And a little while later they saw so many young people, young faces, all looking blessing, you know. And it was amazing because they say we saw these faces, and we knew that these people are blessing, you know, they, they have some goodness in them. And then we saw a man and elderly men who looked so blessed. And he was so calm, and he spoke with so much of wisdom. And we heard him say a few words. And then he
asked us, where are you going, we said, we are going to Makkah for Hajj. He said, hang on, I want to come with you. Some narrations make mention of Amara, and some make mention of Hajj. But what is confirmed is it was a trip to Mecca. He used to yearn he wanted to go there. So he says, We will join you I will join you. And when he called his children and a few of the others who were there in order to inform them of his intention to go to Makkah, he began by advising them before he told them what his intention was, he began to advise them and I want to mention some of the advice. He says, any goodness you see in this world is only a tip of all goodness. And any hardship or difficulty you
face in this world is only a tip of all hardship. But every goodness will come to you in paradise in the true sense. What you've tasted of goodness in this world is nothing but a tip in comparison to what you will get in paradise. And the hardship of the world is nothing but the tip compared to the hardship of hellfire. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So he says, In this world, the good and the bad of people will be given by Allah, whatever he wants to give them. So it is not a sign of the happiness of Allah when he gives you and it is not a sign of the displeasure of Allah when he takes away from you remember this beautiful words. Then he says, however, in the life after death,
goodness is only given to those who worked for it. So panela so be children of the life after and do not become enslaved by this worldly life in a way that you lose your life after. So the moral of what he said is my children in this life, you will get a lot whether you deserve it or not. But when you die, only those who deserve are going to get so make sure you work towards that. You know that time when you will be given only upon merit, whether you deserve it or not. You'll be given in this dunya but in the era, it is only upon those who deserve it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to prepare for the life after death. It is reported that he passed away in Philistine at the
age of approximately 75. And approximately 58 years after the hegira of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the great man should diagnose your loved one.
Now, we will be speaking in Sharla of the final the last of the companions that we will be talking about in this particular series. Perhaps there may be another series at some stage to follow with more of the names because there are so many of the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But we have spoken about those whom Allah has made it easy for us to speak about, and we have just chosen them based on a list that I was given. May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept this from us. Who is this companion?
He is a man known as one of the poets of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So who were the poets? Okay, let's make mention of their names. Don't forget these three names. Hasani. metabotropic. Allahu anhu was one of the poets of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
Abdullah, ignore raha or the Allahu anhu beautiful name raha Abdullah, ignore Ah ha. Allahu anhu was one of the poets of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and our hero tonight, caribou, Malik rhodiola, and one of the heroes and one of the poets of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So what is meant by a poet of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, they used to use their eloquence and their language and their poetry in order to defend Islam and to embarrass those who tried to harm Islam. So it was so powerful at the time that the Arabs used to say it is better for us to be harmed by a spear or a sword, than to be harmed by the words of these three men has served him with a bit of delight Nora
ha ha and cabbie, Malika Viola and Anja Mian, because the Arabs had memories, and they had powerful memories. If someone had uttered the word of poetry, they memorized it, and it went down in history, they knew it 100 years down the line. And to this day, it is written for us and we know the poetry of these three men and many more, even from the times prior and previous, or prior to Islam. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us eloquence and grant us a memory as well to be able to learn, memorize and
Fulfill in a way that we can protect Islam defend the honor of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam I mean, so this was khabib nomadic. He was also an unsavoury. He came from a very poor background, so much so that it is reported that he was from Lucifer and Lucifer are those who are poor, and who did not really have much in terms of wealth, but they dedicated their lives to learning Islam. And then when they learnt it, they practiced upon it and they taught the others today, if you traveled to Madina, munawwara you will notice a raised platform somewhere in the front of the masjid of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam towards the front. And it is reported that similar to that place, or at
the place was where the people of Sofia used to actually gather. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us and grant us Baraka in learning as I was coming in, one of the young boys was asking me, what are the blessing times to memorize the Quran and while there are so many blesser times, one of them is immediately after sunset one of them is early morning between fudger and sunrise, one of them is immediately after sunrise and SubhanAllah. There are so many bless at times, but the moral or should I say the main point is for us to leave sin, because if we continue to sin, our memory deteriorates. And this is why one of the teachers of Imam Shafi Rahmatullah Allah. He told him, Amma Shafi that if
you would like a powerful memory, you need to abstain from sin, because he who sins will not be able to memorize the goodness of the revelation, which is the news given by Allah subhanho wa Taala. May Allah forgive us and may He make us from those who can abstain from sin. I mean, so copied numerical of Allah and he accepted Islam also, with most Abner Mayor Subhan Allah, Allah May Allah bless this man, what a blessing man Musab ignominy, Allah when the wealthy young boy who became known as one of the poorest of the lot, just because he accepted Islam, his family disowned him and so on. You know the story of Muslim women or men we spoke about him or the Allah and so khabib numerical and sorry
about the Allahu anhu took part in the pledge. The same second pledge we spoke about when we mentioned the father of shadab knows whose name was Oh, Sidney tabet, about the Allahu anhu in German. and thereafter, he did not participate in the Battle of bedroom. One might ask why, because participation in the Battle of button was not compulsory, it was voluntary. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam only took with him a few men 313 according to some narrations, that was not all the companions, but whoever wanted to come came. So the main or should I say the senior Sahaba made sure that they did not miss that battle. They made sure because obviously, they were close to Muhammad
Sallallahu Sallam they went with, but the others a lot of them had stayed behind. And it was not bad to have stayed behind from battle, because it was not compulsory to attend. But any battle where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam conscripted young men, it was their duty to take part. And if he said everyone has to attend, unless you have an excuse, then there was nobody who was exempted from this. So one of those battles was the Battle of debulk.
Whenever you hear the name of khabib nomadic or the Allahu anhu, two things should come to your mind. One is the fact that he was the poet of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and two is the Battle of the book. Remember this the Battle of the book, why the Battle of the book, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam prepared an army to fight in a book, when they had the Romans that actually killed one of the ambassadors of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and so on and it's a long history, there was a reason why they had to go back to tackle these people who harmed the Muslims. So,
he said everyone has to come out and it was a difficult time period was of extreme heat in the Arabian Peninsula, you know, today we cannot tolerate you know, the heat without
air conditioning at that time, it was the air conditioning, so panela severe intense heat, and at the same time, it was a very, very great distance to be covered. You know, long distance and this is why Mohammed Salah Sallam said, we need to prepare very well they prepared in advance they prepared with their wealth, they prepared with their camels, they had 1000s of camels and so many of the men Subhana Allah and they began to leave for tabuk each one had to prepare. So caribou, Malik al Ansari, Allah Who says I love Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam so much, but I had one weakness, procrastination.
And we need to learn from this. A lot of us procrastinate so much so that we leave our Salah. We say okay, I'll read it just now brothers and sisters. The first trap of shaytan if you want to know that you are in trapped by the devil is when you say I read my Salah just now, those words just now they come from shape and you must know that the words just now come from shavon because with us as Muslims
The time of Salah enters you get up and your life changes until you finish that Salah you don't rest. That's a true believer Subhan Allah, that's about Salah. Look at what happened to the Battle of the book. This man khabib nomadic or the Allahu anhu says, You know, I really wanted to go but I told myself okay, I'll prepare my camel the days were passing and I will prepare I will prepare. Then I saw everyone was preparing I used to look at them and tell them tell myself that you know what, it's going to be easy for me I can do it quickly. Everyone is taking time I can you know, prepare in a short while not realizing before I knew it. The people started leaving Medina, the
Prophet sallallahu Sallam was going I hadn't yet done anything. So I said no problem. I will join them. Don't worry, I've got fast animals. I'll join them on the road. SubhanAllah look at this procrastination. It happens with us when it comes to Salah when it comes to ibadah when it comes to turning to Allah, many of us say I need to turn to Allah, I need to change my ways. I need to leave my sin and we keep on saying I need to I need to until the need for death comes in front of us. May Allah forgive us really. So don't say that learn from the story of Cabot nomadic. We don't want to die having procrastinated Subhana Allah, we want to be from those who made the change when we felt
we needed to.
And may Allah make us feel we need to change. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us feel that we need to change right here and right now. I mean, so my brothers and sisters khabib No, Malik says, so I said, Okay, I will catch them. He's narrating his own stories as I will get I will catch them no problem. But before I knew it, they were already too far. And then I started saying no, no, I can't go, I can't go. And then a day or two later, I started regretting it in my heart to say, everyone is gone. And what made it worse is every time I came out, the people I saw why the old who had excuses or people who are known hypocrites. So where did I fall in? I was neither a known hypocrite, nor was
I old, I was genuine. I had love of Allah and His messenger. But this delay, delay, delay matter made me stay behind and I don't know what to do. So he says, I felt so bad. And I started asking members of my family, what should I do? What type of excuse Can I give Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, I can just present an excuse and tell him something, you know that I had something that went wrong and so on. So I started thinking of excuses, and asking my family members for excuses. And after a little while, he says Subhana Allah, I started hearing that the Muslims are returning. And he says, I started feeling so bad. And I was wondering what am I going to do? But I made a promise to Allah.
I said, You know what, I will not tell a lie. I will go to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and I will tell him exactly what happened that look. I have no excuse. I just delayed it.
And before I knew it, you were gone. And now you guys, you are coming back and I have lost. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive him forgive all of us. So when he heard Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam had come back, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam had a habit, whenever he came back from a journey. Before he went home, he went to the masjid, he read to record of Salah Astellas goodness and so on. And then he went home. What a great sunar Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam coming back from journey. First place he went to was the masjid to record of Salah at least offer some prayer, and then he would go home. So he said I went to the masjid. I saw Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, but before we speak about
what happened there, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam remembered cabina Malik of the Allahu anhu when they were into book he asked his companions where his cab where his cabin nomadic so someone said something bad that you know what he is arrogant or whatever. They said some bad words about him more Agni Jabara Viola who immediately said, Hey, don't speak bad about him. We don't know any evil from that man. He's a good man. So Mohammed salatu salam was silent. No comment, neither for no against No comment. Now when he came back sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Kabhi bumalik says I was in the masjid. I came to the masjid. And I saw him when he finished reading Salah there were people around
And people were coming with excuses. They were at odd people who were coming with excuses, that you know, I stayed behind because I had this problem that problem so he would make dua for them. ask Allah to forgive them and he would tell them that Allah knows the truth which means what what is between you and Allah what you are hiding, that is between you and Allah. So one man came presented excuses, another one presented excuses, many more came in, started presenting excuses. And he says, Then I came forward. And when I came forward, Subhanallah
I told Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, in fact, he looked at me and he said, Oh Malik, okay, where were you?
He says, oh, messenger, sallAllahu sallam, I have no excuse. This is what happened. And I stayed behind, and I delayed. And before I knew it, you were gone. And I felt so bad. And I thought I would catch you I couldn't catch up and at the same time, now I'm sitting
And I'm at a loss.
So he looked at him and he told the companions around around him. This man is speaking the truth. So go away from me until Allah tells me what to do in your regard.
Now, why was this? Because the others came and presented excuses if they lied or didn't lie between them and Allah, this man came and told the truth. Now Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam knows that no one was excused. So what to do to him, I need an instruction from Allah. So he said, I will wait until Allah tells me what to do. So he says, I went away.
And as I went away, he says, I felt so bad and I felt so hurt. And there was an instruction that came from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
to say that, this man,
nobody should talk to him until Allah reveals verses or until Allah tells me what to do about him.
So he says, just before Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said that one man comes to me and told me that why didn't you give excuses like all the others in Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam would have been happy. You know, it was so easy to make him happy. So he said, I told Mohammed salatu salam that voila, if it was anyone besides you, it was easy for me to just make an excuse and make him happy. I'm an eloquent man. I can make an excuse and make him happy. But I know it is you. If I lie to you, Allah will disgrace me. This is why I'm telling you the truth. So he said, I thought, let me present an excuse. And I told myself no ways the truth. And I will just say the truth No matter what happens as
a result. So Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam instructed his companions not to talk to him at all.
And Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam stopped looking at him. And he says, I asked, Is there anyone else? Is there anyone else? Who is in my position? You know, there must be others maybe who might have had the same problem. So someone had told him just prior to them cutting off from him. And you know what, there are two other people marrara Abner robbia and the healer live in omega three. How do you remember these names? Quite easy. Just remember maca mean calf and the heart. Right? So Maura, Abner robbia, capitani Malik and healer libnah Amaya. These are the three names. Okay. So maca. You just remember that in Sharla mirandola. Beer, cab nomadic and Hillel Amaya. So he learned no ammonia and
marinara beer. They were the other two. He says Now, I know that they had no money. I was a little bit elderly. And they in the same boat. No one is speaking to them. Not at all. So he says I used to greet my friends and companions, no response. Try and talk to them. I used to go out to the market. As for my two colleagues, they stopped coming to the market. They stopped coming in public because no one was speaking to them. They felt it but I was young and energetic. I used to go out and greet people on their face. They didn't reply, look the other way and carry on. He says I felt so bad. I used to go to the masjid to read Salah. And I noticed Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam never looked at me.
Not even by mistake. He always avoided me completely. I tried to greed, no response, nothing. Why? Because there was an instruction of Allah being awaited. And I felt hurt. I used to cry Subhana Allah, I used to cry. Now one might ask that look, in Islam, when someone greets you, you're supposed to reply. This was the only exception or at that time, the exception. May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us all a lesson from this. So he says, I had a very good good friend of mine who was a cousin. And we were so close in friendship. He was Abu Qatada. I climbed the wall going into his little garden, and I saw him there. And I greeted him. And he looked away. And I'm shocked. It was
the instruction of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam to all the companions to boycott the three of us. And I was so so hurt in the sense that I was asking Allah Allah forgive me what I have done, and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says, I have to wait for instruction from Allah, those who presented they excuses. That's one thing, but these three had no excuse nothing, and they stayed away from something when we really needed them.
Subhan Allah Subhana Allah.
So he said,
I waited. I tried so many other things. He says the worst thing that could ever have happened happened. A man came from a sham.
And he asked the people were his cabinet Malik. They just pointed in my direction. He came with a letter,
a letter from a sham. What did the letter say? The letter said, Oh cabina Malik. We have heard that your people have boycotted you, we offer you refuge, leave that religion and join ours come along.
He said well, ah he I took that letter and threw it into the fire that was burning straightaway. Because I had love for Allah and His messenger and I knew that this will not last because as
Much as he hurt me so much, but it had to end However, a month passed and still This continued. And 40 days passed. And then news comes that Mohammed salatu salam has instructed our wives to go home, Allahu Akbar, wives must now depart separate from your wives. That was the instruction, you must separate from your wives. So Malik this copy of numerical, the alojado his wife, she had to send her home instruction of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he learned no Amaya. His wife came to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam saying, you know Hillel is an elderly man. Can I not just serve him? You know so Mohammed Salah Salaam says okay, but you don't share the bed with him. He says the sharing the bed
stop the day this problem started. This man has been crying and he's been in sorrow ever since he's such an old man. He doesn't even know what to do. So talking about, you know, marital relations. That was a long time ago. It's already stopped so panela so one man comes or one of the family members the men we're not talking to cab nomadic but one of the family members of cabinet nomadic says, You know what, rather than sending your wife away, speak to Mohammed Salah Salem, send your wife again to him and make an excuse similar to that of Eli lipno my wife, perhaps you'll be allowed. He says I can't do that. I'm young. I don't have any excuse. It's I need to be penalized. I
don't have an excuse. I what I did was wrong. So those 10 days were the most dreadful days in the life of this man. khabib no Malik Robbie, Alo and his colleagues marrara Abner Robbie, Robbie Allah and and he la libnah Amaya rhodiola one. So imagine, he says the 15th night I spent and in the morning I read Salah
when I read Salah to fudger. I was sitting on the rooftop. And I heard someone's voice at the top of Jebel Silla. Jebel Salah is the mount of Silla, which is in Madina munawwara To this day, you probably will see that mounted is still there. And I heard someone scream,
or khabib mnemonic, good news for you. And he says, As soon as I heard it once or twice, I fell prostrate. To thank Allah, I said, there's some good news here. It can only be one thing. The man is calling me which means now they're talking to me. Something has come and he's good news. So he says, people started rushing towards me, a man on a horse came and said, Your forgiveness has come SubhanAllah. And he says, they began to embrace me. He felt a hand after so long, because no one was greeting him. No one was shaking his hand. He felt a hand after so long, the warmth of it the tears rolling, you know, the man was so emotional. And it is reported that he was so emotional that when
the person whose voice he had heard that come in front of him, he took off his own clothing to give that man because at that time, there was a culture where when you're coming with some serious news and you telling the truth, you take off your shirt, you know, you take off your top, so that people know hey, this man is not telling a lie. He's telling the truth. It was a culture at the time.
Unlike the footballers of today, Allah protect us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. So here we have khabib new Malik, he was so happy, so delighted. He says, You know what? I rushed towards Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and I entered the masjid.
And I saw him sitting. And I looked at him and his face lit up as though it was a piece of the moon. Whenever he was happy. His face was shining as though it was a piece of the moon Subhan Allah.
And he says, I was so happy. I greeted him. And he responded back to me. He says, I was so delighted. I couldn't believe what was happening. And I was I had this embrace from Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he tells me all my old cab, good news.
The best day, today is the best day ever for you. From the day you were born, the best ever day. So he says I asked him, is it from you or from Allah? Now that is a powerful question. What does that mean?
Which means if you are telling me it's one of those things, but if Allah has said it, it means there's going to be some verses of the Quran here Subhana Allah. And if there's a verse of the Quran, up to the day of judgment that people will be reading that verse, we read it to my brothers and sisters Subhana Allah. So Allah wanted to raise the status of this man, because of his honesty when he sought forgiveness for procrastination.
He was honest, and he endured so much. And even people try to tell him even when people try to tell him to do things to present excuses and whatnot, someone came from afar to tell him Let's go away. He said, No. Subhan Allah khabib nomadic rhodiola and he was known as one of the three and you know who the three are, don't you?

So, the news came and then he Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says no, this is from Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, I was so delighted, Subhana Allah, that I told Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that I want to give out all my money for charity, whatever you have, I own it was it must go out for sadaqa. So Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said, hang on, keep a bit of it. It's better for you. You know, sometimes, when we have a problem, we say, if this thing happens, I'll give all my wealth, but you don't realize hang on you will need a bit of it. You know, relax. That's why we were taught that you know, what do you want to
give charity give, but remember that the charity or the money that you spend on your own family and those who are under your guardianship is also a charity.
So my brothers and sisters, this man says Subhana Allah, I was
given glad tidings through verses of the Quran verse number 117, of surah, two Toba where Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of how he has forgiven those who participated in a book from amongst the Maha Jeannine and the Ansel and after that, he says, and I have also forgiven those three who did not go they stayed behind. So Allah says, What Allah tala Ji loving fully for Allahu Akbar and I have forgiven those three who stayed behind. Amazing and hit this man khabib nomadic radi Allahu anhu says, this was definitely not only the best day in my life, from the time my mother had given birth to me, but even post that day, I've never had a happier day. Never ever had a happier day than
that. Because Allah has declared my forgiveness in the Quran, Subhana Allah, he was one of those who after that, never procrastinated. Whenever something had to be done. He was the first one there Subhana Allah, brothers and sisters, this was a powerful lesson for us all. And we saw how sometimes just the feeling of saying I will do just now can actually mess us up so much. May Allah subhanahu Allah forgive us, and May He grant us eternal paradise. May He grant us paradise without taking account of our deeds. I mean,
May He grant us paradise without hisab without other that means without accounts and without punishing us while law he keeps making that dua keep asking Allah forgiveness Do not be from amongst those who think I haven't sinned. So why should I ask for forgiveness? Because we sinned without knowing. And Subhana Allah asking Allah forgiveness is a great teaching of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam although he did not need it, he's still engaged in it. What about us? We need it so desperately, we should be engaging in it genuinely. And as I said, brothers and sisters, this might be your last Ramadan. This might be the last Ramadan you've ever seen. There are those who started
the month with us and disappeared in the middle of the month May Allah grant them Jenna. There are those who may never see the next month of Ramadan we might be from amongst those make the most of the last few moments of Ramadan. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us and grant us Oh Jenna, was Allah Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah humblebee Hambrick Masha Allah, Allah Allah and
