Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam O Allah, healthcare Germaine Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa bien woman tabea home BSN and Elijah Medina. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his household, his companions, may Allah bless them and bless every single one of us. And may Allah grant us all goodness. I mean, my brothers and sisters, the best of names, according to the hadith of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, I have asthma Illa Allah He Abdullah Abdul Rahman, the best names that are most loved by Allah subhanho wa Taala Abdullah and Abdul
Rahman. So a lot of the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began naming their children Abdullah and Abdul Rahman Subhan. Allah, the slave of Allah and the slave of the Most Merciful, may Allah make us truly from amongst his slaves. Today we are speaking of two of our heroes, once again, from amongst the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We want to get to know them a little bit better. So when someone says a name, we should have an idea of who the person was. The first that we will be discussing this evening, Abdullah ibn are abuzz about the law and he was born in Islam, which means he was born already when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
was sent as a messenger, and he was born three years prior to the hegira itself. So as he was born, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the one who was asked to do his technique. The technique is when little date is chewed slightly, and it is taken, placed into the mouth of a newborn, with a slight bit of saliva, it would be rich in iron and at the same time high in spirituality. This is known as technique to this day the Muslim men do this, following the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So this young child Abdullah abass, he was the cousin of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because his father was al Abbas Ibn Abdul muttalib and Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. His
father was Abdullah hypnotically. He was also a cousin of Ali ibn Abi Talib because Abu Talib and Abdul muttalib was also an uncle of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this young baby who was just born three years prior to the hegira, so Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was invited to do the technique. He did the technique. And this young boy, as he grew up, he loved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam so much. It was amazing. He spent a lot of time with him, he would be within his home and within his room, most of the time. This was Abdullah hub nobis. So much so that he says, I used to prepare water when Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam wanted to make Whoo. And I used to travel
with him on the same animal a lot of the times, and I used to walk with Him most of the time. And he used to carry me on his shoulder a lot of the times some Hannah law, this was even above the law. And he says whenever Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to pray, I used to stand up as a little boy and pray with him. You know, we see little children when we are praying our own children. May Allah make us steadfast and make our children steadfast as well. We see them pray. So he says, I used to get up and pray. And one day Mohammed sallallahu wasallam pulled me from the back and pushed me right so that I could stand next to him. And I went back, I sprung back to where I was behind
him. So when he completed his prayer, he said, Oh, Abdullah, why didn't you stand right next to me? He says, oh, messenger, I respect you so much, and I love you so much. And I have so much of respect for you. I cannot stand in the same line as you Subhana Allah, so I stood behind you and I will always stand behind you. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made for him a dua. There were two main do as supplications that were made by Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam for this man. And it was accepted and it was noted in his life and the companions knew about it. Not the Allahu anon Jamie and one was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once whilst he was playing on his shoulder. He
says Allah hamasaki houfy Deen unlimited will Allah give this young boy a deep understanding of the religion? chick? fil a is not just knowledge, it is a deep understanding. This is why a lot of the times I have a prayer that we normally like to say for us all May Allah give us a deep understanding. This is where we get it from. So Allah says Omaha masala
Slo asks Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah give this young boy a deep understanding of the deen and grant him knowledge of the interpretation of the revelation which means the seed of the Quran. And truly, later on this Abdullah Ibn Abbas was known as humble mature to German Koran. He was known as the jurist of the oma, the one who had the most knowledge in jurisprudence of the whole oma. And he was known as to regimen Quran, which means the one who had the deepest knowledge of Tafseer and the revelation and why verses were revealed and what they meant. And yet he was a little boy, and he grew up this is what he was known as. So from this, we understand, do not underestimate the dua that
someone makes for you, especially if that person is a pious person. May Allah bless us all grant us piety, and may we be from amongst those who really become happy when someone prays for us, noting that the most powerful prayer is when you pray for someone without them even knowing that you have prayed for them. May Allah grant us the ability to pray for one another. And I here request that you pray for me and we pray for you and the entire oma, may Allah bless us all in every single way. I mean, the other day that was made was Allahu Mattila achema. This was the day when he was taken from the back and put to stand next to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And he went back that day, Muhammad
Sallallahu Sallam says, oh, Allah, grant us child wisdom. And it is reported that he became such a wise youngster, so much so that the people have
meaning the muslimeen of Quraysh, and even the answer and the other Muslims, they used to say, he is a child, but a very wise child. He's like an old man, you know, sometimes you have a little child, but their movements are like old people. And we get excited this in the real case, he was a youngster who grew up and Subhan Allah, not only wisdom, but he was very, very mature from a young age. So panela he used to listen very carefully to all the discussions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he used to listen to the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam very, very carefully, so much so that he was asked one day, how did you get your knowledge? He says, I used to
ask a lot of questions. SubhanAllah you know, our children, they ask questions. Sometimes we say keep quiet. You're not supposed to ask No, that's the wrong answer. Give them the answer. If you don't know find it for them. If you don't know, take them to someone who will answer their questions. It will increase their knowledge. May Allah help us all. So he was a man or he was from his young days, he used to ask a lot of questions, but he had a certain beauty about him. Something amazing is he used to listen also very carefully, very attentively. It is reported that Abdullayev not above the law one.
When he spoke, everyone listened to him. And when people spoke, he listened to them very carefully. Amazing with us. A lot of the times we were on WhatsApp, I think, are we on BBM even when your own father or mother is speaking to you is still busy, you know, sending people messages until your mom sends you a message on the same application. And then you say oh, sorry about that. I hope we apologize as well. Nowadays we're becoming more and more rude. May Allah grant myself goodness and all of us, I think we get overtaken this Sahabi al jahleel great honor. It's a hobby. When people used to talk to him, he left everything and listened very attentively, he gave them importance and
he was loved Subhana Allah. Now, if we take a look at how desperately he sought knowledge,
if he heard that there was a hadith after the death of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam remember he was only 13 years old when Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam passed away. If he heard that there was a hadith that one of the companions had that he had not yet heard. He would go to their door in the afternoon. And he if had he not, they would have opened the door because he was the cousin of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, but he used to take a piece of his clothing and lay it at the door. And he used to lie down in the heat. And he used to go to rest there or lie down there and wait for a while until the companion came out for Salah. As they open the door, they would see Abdullah in a
bus What are you doing here? He would say no, I've just come to seek a bit of knowledge. Well, why didn't you knock the door while I wanted you to rest and I knew that when you came out I would be able to speak to you know you are the cousin of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, the family of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had you called me I would have come to you Why did you even have to come here? He says no, I was taught to respect those whom you want to seek knowledge from without respecting them. You will never be able to seek knowledge. So much so that they didn't obey the law and who cried one day. He says this young man Abdullah bus, he waited for me at my door. As I came
out, he rushed towards my conveyance the animal and he grabbed the animal and helped me onto my animal and he held the reins of my animal and he's walking and I said oh in a bus. Why are you doing this? He says you are a teacher. You've taught me something. He says you are a family member of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam you are embarrassing.
He says, No, this is how I've been taught to look up to my teachers and to respect them. I am helping you, because I respect you for the knowledge I've learned from you. And thereafter, they didn't have it says I asked him or even about Show me your hand. So he showed him the hand so they didn't have it got a hold of it and kissed his hand.
So if a bus says Why did you do that? He says, because you are a family member of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam Subhan Allah, may Allah grant us a bit of respect from those we learn from. A lot of the times we have teachers who have taught us goodness, we harm them later on in life. And this has happened a lot. It is a test of Allah subhanho wa Taala those who teach us Elif and Baba, when we become 5060 years old, we think of how to harm them and how to hurt them in the biggest and best way or Oh Billa this should not be the case. We should respect them to the last moment. So this was the men It is reported that at the time of Alibaba, Alibaba, the Allahu anhu
Abdullah bus was so intelligent, so intelligent, so full of knowledge. He told Alibaba Talib, you see these people who have come out of your obedience. Let me go and speak to them. So Alibaba says, What do you want to tell them? What will you tell them? They won't listen to you exist? No, allow me to go. So then he was allowed to go he went to see this large group of people who had some bad things to say about alibaba alibaba. And so he asked them a few questions. But first they did not want to talk to him because he was young still. And then he said no, I would like to say a few words to you. So some of them said okay, this man is a cousin of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam listen to him.
He asked them two or three questions about why they were doing what they were doing. And each thing he responded with a verse of the Quran and explained to them or a saying of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and explained to them in a few moments, he had turned the bulk of them back to Alabama.
In a few moments, this was the intelligence of the men the wisdom of this young man masuk acknowledge that was a Tabby Tabby, meaning he was not a companion, but he had met the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu alaihe salam Rahmatullah la masuk acknowledge that says, Abdullah Ibn Abbas was the most handsome of those I saw. So when I used to see him, I used to say, This man is the most handsome when he opened his mouth, I used to say Subhana Allah, this man is the most eloquent. And when he used to start speaking, I used to say Alhamdulillah, this man is the most knowledgeable, so he had three things. He had eloquence in language, he had deep knowledge, and he was very handsome
in his looks. This was Abdullah Ibn Abbas radi Allahu anhu, the youngster who grew up with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or under the guardianship of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was a man every single day. He used to have gatherings at his house, so much so that nowadays, we describe it as the first university. Because he used to teach subjects he was a master in Tafseer. He was a master in jurisprudence, which is known as fic. He was a master in history. He was a master in the Arabic language, and in what was halal and haram, and so many other things. So he used to specialize every single day for a different topic. And the people used to gather at his house, and
he always allowed them in, and he always prepared some form of food or drink or fruit for those who came in, and it he considered it an honor. So those who were his students, they were invited to his house students, meaning they wanted to seek knowledge from him. And on top of them, he used to give them food or drink. Imagine with us, even if we get a visitor in our house, may Allah grant us ease. I don't want to say what goes through the minds and the hearts of the people of today. You know, I once visited a house with my mom when we were young, and the door had a sticker on it saying we are very happy upon your arrival, but we will be even happier when you depart.
Imagine that's today's times May Allah grant us ease. I'll never forget this. May Allah forgive us all. I just hope it was a joke. And it was not serious. When I told my mother what had happened. She said, I never want to go back to that house. It's something true. Anyway, to get back to the live now, but he was a new stat. And at the same time, he used to honor those who learned from him as well, not only his teachers, but even those who learned from him because he used to say it is Allah who sent them to learn from me. This is a sign that Allah subhanho wa Taala is using me to spread this knowledge, but he was a very, very humble person.
So he, It is reported that on one occasion, the people came to his house, so much so that his own friends used to say we've never seen the streets so full as we have close to the house of a bus, viola and the galleys and alleys so full, there is no place to walk. So one of his friends went into his house after having found his way in and he says, oh, in a bus, you are resting, but the people are all outside so many people the largest gathering we've ever seen. So he says, Let me make ooh
So he was helped to make Hulu. And after a little while, he says, Call the people in, ask them, whoever wants to ask about the Quran you can enter now, when they entered, he answered all their questions as best as he could. And then he told him there are others who want to come in so they left. Then he says whoever wants to ask about halal and haram enter the home, they entered the home after they left whoever wants to ask about laws of inheritance enter the home and after they left who ever wants to ask about Arabic language because he was a linguist and a great poet. You can enter now and this is how he was known as the great university of knowledge. May Allah subhanho wa
Taala bless us all. Omar Bill hottub, as great as he was, and the other philosopher they used to call this young man in in order to seek his opinion in so many of the major issues and incidents. And some of the older companions told Rama Allahu anhu you calling this young man Come on, they are older people than him. He says well, ah he this man is a knowledgeable man from the time of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam that that was made for him. He is such a knowledgeable person, that I will definitely ask him and I will definitely seek Subhan Allah His opinion. So on one occasion, if not more, or should I say Omar Abu Qatada. The Allahu anhu asked him a question and said, in fact,
he asked the companions a question. What do you people have to say about the Tafseer of surah Nasir, either,
Allahu Akbar, that is the surah short surah we all know it by heart, I think, what is your people's statement about the Tafseer of the surah. So that surah is mentioning the time, Allah is saying that when the victory comes and the help of Allah comes, and you see the people entering Islam, in great groups in huge armies, they enter Islam, then glorify Allah and seek His forgiveness for indeed he is most forgiving. That in a nutshell is the meaning of the surah. So some of them said, well, it is telling us that when you see victory, you must thank Allah. Some said it is telling us that you must be thankful of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Other said, we don't know what it means and others were
quiet. And then he told us to live not buzz, what do you say? And he was the youngest of the Lord. He says this surah was revealed in order to show us and to show Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that his mission has been accomplished and his death is near Subhan Allah. So the others looked and they said, How do you know this? He said, I know because of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after we had victory, the mission was accomplished when the mission was accomplished. Allah is telling him seek forgiveness, and now he would prepare to meet with Allah subhanho wa Taala amazing so Sugata Nasir, it was Abdullah Ibn Abbas Ravi Allahu anhu. Who said that the Tafseer of it, it would include
the fact that it is informing that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his mission has been accomplished and his death is near May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all and grant us ease. He was one of those Abdullayev nabasa the Allahu anhu, who used to have such a powerful memory. He used to remember all the rulings of the time of Abu Bakr and Omar Abdullah katavi Allahu anhu. And the likes, he used to remember it all, anyone would ask him, what did Abu Bakr say about this? He would know what do they say about this? radi Allahu anhu Jamie and May Allah subhanho wa Taala his blessings be upon all of them. And Subhana Allah, he was a man who used to say that I love goodness
for all the people, even those I don't know, I make dua for them. When I've heard of a good ruling made by a ruler, I pray for him. When I heard of rain, when I hear of rain or goodness that comes to any one of the Muslims. I thank Allah on their behalf and I pray for them. He says when I have even a little bit of knowledge, I desperately want to share it with as many people as I can, even though I don't know them. And he used to cry a lot in his Salah, and he was a person who used to prefer peace than war. And he had a preference he always used to say, give preference to peace over wall and give preference to kindness over being harsh and give preference to explaining rather than
instructing. Now, what is the difference between explaining and instructing something amazing. If I were to tell you fulfill your Salah, that's an instruction. But if I were to sit you down and explain to you why you need to fulfill your Salah, you will be so convinced that you will want to do it. And this is how we should be treating our own children. This is the teaching of Abdullah live now bas are the Allah one. So he was one of those people Subhana Allah, who was a great man, I want to quickly make mention of one of the beautiful hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When Abdullah Ibn Abbas or the Allahu anhu was with him, he says I was with Muhammad Sallallahu
Sallam as a young boy. And then he looked at me and he said, Yeah, hold on. Oh, young boy.
For the La Jolla.
Look after your obligations unto Allah and Allah will protect you. If Allah had the Judo to jack, look after your obligations unto Allah, and you will find him with you coming to your assistance, you will find him right ahead of you Subhan Allah and he continued to say either Sir ltfs Allah wa either Stan devastating Billa when you ask, only ask Allah when you seek help, only seek the help of Allah. And you should know that if the whole nation gathers together to harm you, they will never be able to harm you unless Allah has written it against you. And if the whole nation gathers to give you some goodness or to benefit you, they will never be able to benefit you unless Allah has written
it for you. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us from that he passed away when he was 71 years old in the year approximately 768 eg and he died in the city of tarrif. He was from amongst those whom more are we even Abby Sophia was the believer. And he had come in for for Amara with a large group of people. This was the halifa of the Muslims, Maria Abbey, Sophia, Allah. And when he walked in, and he came into Makkah, he had a large group of people with him, and he noticed an even larger group of people. And when he asked about them, they said those are the students who are now with Abdullah hypnotic bus of their level. And so he had even a larger following Subhanallah during that
particular Hajj. Our next hero is the son of Rama,
Allah and His name was Abdullah as well Abdullah hypno Rama
he was born one year before Prophethood. So he was born just prior to Islam. When his father accepted Islam he was one year old. So he too was a youngster. He grew up as a Muslim and Subhan Allah He was the closest in looks to his father or mother. People used to miss his father come to him and just look at him and Allah because he was the closest in looks to his own father. He too used to follow Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He made his eulogy Madina munawwara with his father, the day his father announced I am making hegira anyone wants to follow me see me on the other side. This little child of his was with him and he made hegira with his father. The Battle of
butter came in and Abdullah Heppner, Omar Allahu anhu was only approximately 1212 and a half years old. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent him back. He was too young. He cried. He really wanted to take part in the battle. Then the following year or hurt, he was still 13 plus years old. Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam sent him back, he cried again. In fact, he was standing like he was tiptoeing, trying to look big, and he made his shoulders look broad and he had a sword that he came with. But Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam sent him back told him no. And when the Battle of 100 took place, he was approximately 15 years old and then Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam allowed him and Subhana
Allah thereafter, he took part in whatever Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam took part in as well. And he was an amazing young man Subhan Allah, Abdullah Heppner, Amara Malhotra Beardy, Allahu anhu did not lean towards the dunya towards the world. Whenever he earned something he gave it away. Whenever he ate, he always made sure that the poor shared the same food that he ate every time he ate, if they didn't, he would not want to eat. And we will give you some examples of that in a few moments. He was a man who was constantly found in the masjid. It is reported that if you went to the masjid, you would always find Abdullah abnormal. They are the Allahumma May Allah bless them both him and his
father. One day he saw a dream. And in his dream, he saw the two angels were taking him towards the fire. And so he started saying I will do Billahi min. And narmala protect me from the fire. May Allah protect me from the fire. So another angel comes in and says, oh, Abdullah, you don't need to worry. You don't need to worry.
Nothing is going to harm you. Anyway, he got up from his sleep quite worried.
And he told his dream to his sister who was the wife of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam have
been to Omar mininova de la. So she was the wife of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam she told Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam My brother has seen this dream. My little brother has seen this dream. So Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says, what a good man he is. If only he reads extra Salah at night.
Abdullah Abdullah Omar have heard this rhodiola, Noma and he says,
From that day, every night whenever my eye opened, I got up made whoo and read a little bit of Salah tried to sleep again. And his friends and his family say that every night three, four or five times a night. He would suddenly get up make Hulu and read some Salah because he wanted he was worried about this dream that he had and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told him you will have Paradise by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala obviously
He was not from amongst those who was directly informed that Paradise is from him. But this narration or this dream was good news for him that by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala he will have goodness, but he would need to continue praying at night so that is exactly what he did. And some amazing story stories of this beautiful companion, Abdullah have neuroma rhodiola and Houma.
It is reported that a man of near a founder of the Allahu Allah during his time, tried to appoint him as a caddy, caddy, meaning a judge. So he refused because he did not want to be a leader in this world at all. He was so careful of the Hadith he narrated so many hadith of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam
that he was so careful of the wording he was one of those whom if he was not sure of the wording, he would not narrate it. Although the Hadith you're allowed to narrate it with a slightly different wording, if you are not 100% sure, for as long as the meaning is not changed. But the Quran you cannot do that. But he used to do the same as the Quran with the idea to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he told us man up now fine, I don't want to be a judge here. So I told him, You know what, you should be the judge. And we would like you to be the judge. Your father was appointed the judge in the presence of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. So do you know what the young man says?
Allah when he says, My father was appointed as a judge in front of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he judged with what he knew when he didn't know he would ask Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam if he didn't give the answer straight away, he would ask jabril and he would get revelation, and I don't have that anymore. So I don't want to be a judge. Subhana Allah, what a man. So it was mine up near the front of the Allahu anhu thereafter excused him because he said, Look, man, if someone seeks the refuge, if someone seeks refuge in Allah, surely, wouldn't they be granted refuge as man says yes, they would. He says, Well, I seek refuge in a lab from being appointed as a
caddy or as an Imam. I don't want to be appointed as either one of them. So he was not a fan of the Allahu anhu acknowledged that and he gave it to him. He said, okay, that is fine. Then when it came to
the confusion between Ali Taliban Maria radi Allahu anhu ma melas peace and blessings be upon all of them. Some of the companions said, Oh, Abdullah Heppner, Omar, we want you to be the Khalif. And he said, I will never ever be the belief. How can I be the belief? I'm just an ordinary Muslim. So they told him no, you should be a belief Your father was a strong man. So he looked at them and he said, Okay, if you appoint me as a belief and you pledge allegiance, to me as a colleague, what will happen to the people of the East? Who would not want me as a belief. So those who wanted him told him well, if they don't adopt you and accept you as a colleague and pledge allegiance with you, we
will fight them.
And that is when he said his famous statement. He said, never ever let that happen. I would definitely prefer never to let Muslims fight because of me. And because of Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us and May He grant us ease. This Abdullah have neuroma rhodiola and Houma. He turned that down very strongly, and he warned the people about fighting because of Halawa. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us and grant us all ease and goodness. And May He grant us peace and stability across the globe. My brothers and sisters, this was the man whom he used to follow the footsteps of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam to the tea. Do you want to hear what he used to do?
When he used to go to Makkah, he used to stop at a certain place, and he used to water a certain tree. So they asked him why are you stopping here? He says because once I traveled with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he stopped at exactly the same place. And this is where he stopped so I will stop here. And what happened also Subhan Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he arrived in Makkah, his camel went round the Kaaba twice, just on its own. So whenever Abdullah abnormal,
used to go, he used to make his camel go round. Exactly how Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is common when they asked him, is this something we need to do? He said, No, it's something I just love to do, because my most beloved used to do this, and it happened to him once. It happened to him once. So this man used to follow the footsteps exactly of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he found that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam walked in this direction. And when he got to a certain place, he bent a little bit when he walked up the line normally used to walk when he got to the spot, he would bend his head a little bit and carry on walking, although there was nothing there anymore, but this is
the love of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam that he had now. This man used to love the poor and the orphan so much that he used to make them eat with him. So one day
his wife Sophie,
have been a bit obeyed the law and her. She was told that you know what?
I want to have some some fish. I want to eat a little bit of fish. And obviously it was a man who ate very little, very little he was very thin people used to complain to his wife, why aren't you feeding him? So she used to say I cook for him whatever he wants to eat, and I cook for him the best of food. But every time he goes to the masjid on his way back, he sees these beggars and he comes back and gives them the food. So what should I do? So she used to go out to those beggars and give them something prior to salah and tell him please move out of the way of this man. So when he comes back, he doesn't see you. That's what she used to do. So still, one day he had a fish. And this is
an amazing story. We need to listen. So she cooked it for him. She found it and she made it very well and very nice. And she put it in front of him to eat. And as he's thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala for his meal. a beggar knocks on the door. So he tells his wife give him this fish. She says but oh Abdullayev neuroma, how can I give him the fish when I struggled to make it for you? You haven't eaten for so long? You need it you are so thin you are weak you need to strengthen your body to live normal of the law and who never ate to his food not even once. He used to say we are people in fact he used to say that we are people who will when we eat we will not eat to our films Subhana
Allah this was a man he used to eat in order to be able to worship Allah not eat as we do in order to enjoy the food of today. Everywhere we go we hear makan makan. Mashallah May Allah grant us ease and goodness. That's something Malaysian Alhamdulillah anyway, so here is Abdullah have normally a long run.
He says give the beggar so she went to the beggar and she says, You know what?
I have this fish have been told to give it to you. But my husband, he he would like to eat it, meaning he wanted it. So the biggest is, Well, you know what I wanted to SubhanAllah. So she says, Okay, I tell you what, I'll give it to you. But I'll buy back from you. So she gave it to him. And then she took a dinner and she gave him the dinner. And he said, Okay, that's excellent. I will take the deal. And she gave back the the the food. So by that time Abdullayev normal came to the door. And she looked at him and said, You know what? I gave him the food. And I bought it back from him and he's so happy. So he looked at the beggar and he says, Are you happy with what happened? So the
biggest is yes, I got the dinner. Then he looks at his wife. He says now you give him the food because now it's a charity Subhan Allah and he made sure that that fish was given away Allahu Akbar, even though he wanted it so much. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us ease and goodness and make us people who don't live to eat, but rather we eat to live. So this was the man. It is important for me to mention a few more stories of this man. Abdullah hypno dinero the Allahu anhu says that one day we went out with Abdullah abnormal for Amara rhodiola and Houma. And on the on the road we saw a shepherd and the shepherd had quite a lot of sheep with him. And at the live neuroma, he was such a
kind man and he loved pious people and good people, honest, upright people. So he looked at the shepherd and he says, oh, Shepherd, give us one of your sheep. And just tell your boss that you know what?
A wolf came and ate it. So the shepherd looked at him and says Abdullah Abdul Rahman.
He says, What answer will I give Allah subhanho? wa Taala. My boss, I can tell him anything. What about Allah, I can't cheat him. So Abdullah Abdullah Omar was so touched by this, that later on, he bought the slave and he bought all those sheep. And he freed the slave and gave him all the sheep which he owned Subhanallah the story has repeated itself recently. If you'd like to Google the story of a Sudanese Shepherd, just Google it, you will find it in Sharla. In fact, on YouTube, you will find the story something very similar to this story that happened at the time of Abdullayev Norma repeated itself last year in Saudi Arabia. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us all goodness and
ease and make us honest consciousness of Allah at the time when no one is watching besides Allah subhanho wa Taala. Another quick story of this man, once he was given 20,000 coins, and he distributed them straightaway, like I told you, he didn't want to keep them. So when he finished distributing them, some people came and said, Do you still have anything to give him? He said, No, I don't But hang on. He went to those whom he gave and said, Can I get some credit from you? Can I please have Can you lend me some of what I gave you? So he got it back from them as a debt and he gave those who are asking and later on, he paid that debt. Imagine Subhana Allah, this was the man
and this is how great he was. He was a person who used to say, the hadith of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam confit dunya can occur even below Sabine, live in this world as though you are a passer by as though you are a stranger or a passer by. And he used to always say, Oh, my beloved brothers. When you have seen the morning, don't think that you're going to be
living at night. And when you have seen the night, do not think you're going to be alive to see the morning. Don't wait, prepare with Allah subhanho wa Taala yet, he lived for almost 85 years, a little bit more than 85 years. And when he was 85 years old or a little bit more in the year 73 hijiri. He passed away in Makkah, Tomoko Rama, and he was buried there. These were our two heroes that we spoke about today. The idea is just getting to know them slightly. One was Abdullah Ibn Abbas, Allah and Houma. The other was Abdullah Abdullah Omar, Abdullah and Houma. Why we say and Houma is because we are asking Allah His blessings for both them and their fathers, as they were
both companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah grant us the companionship of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the era, amin sallallahu wasallam albaraka Allah Nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah he'll be Hamdi Subhana, Allah home ob Hamdi Ganesha, Allah Allah, Allah and Mr. Furukawa Tobu like
