Dawud (as) Part 2
Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad Allah Allah Allah He was happy he may know about. All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless his household, his companions to bless all those who have struggled and strive to bring this Deen to us and to bless every single one of us. Beloved brothers and sisters, it brings a smile to the face. When we see the faces every single day, similar faces in the crowds and Subhana Allah we are connected by the link of Eman. We are connected by the link of Shahada. We have a love between
us which is solely for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I'd like you to know that it brings happiness to the heart to see the faces that are meaning to see those who are believers who come to the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Also to end the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, may Allah accept it from us. We have read this evening powerful verses of the last use of the Quran. With the idea of completing the Quran inshallah tomorrow the entire recitation, we would have heard it from cover to cover. And we hope and pray that Allah accepted from us.
Yesterday we had made mention of some of the stories of some of the prophets of Israel in a question that arose.
We had made mention of the taboos or the Ark of the Covenant, and we said that it was lost when they battled Vasa and Ashkelon. And either it was taken or either it was lifted up by Allah subhanho wa Taala. When did it come back? That is a very good question. We slipped up to mention it yesterday, that when Allah subhanho wa Taala instructed the prophet to appoint a king after the request of the people, and they had questioned the Prophet after he said that Sol will be the king or pollute will be the king. They said, How can he be the king because firstly, he doesn't have much wealth and he is not from the correct lineage.
and thereafter, this Nabhi made mention of the sign that Allah would send in order to confirm that he was appointed as a king. What was that sign? Here is the rest. Allah says, What call Allah
in Tamaki tomoyuki
Tia como bo tofi Sakina to
worry about the to me mataranka musawah
Mila Humala Inca in Effie the Haleakala
meaning, he says the sign of his appointment as a king, is the fact that Allah will send you that Ark of the Covenant, Allah subhanho wa Taala will send it to you, it will come down to you.
In it, there will be peace and comfort for you. They will be whatever Allah subhana wa Taala has held in it with the remnants of
the progeny order the family of Musa alayhis salam and the family of heroine Anna Hema a salatu salam, I told you yesterday What exactly was in that box, we don't know. All we know is it was in it, there was some form of comfort, whenever they had it with them, they want the wars, there was some revelation that was in it as well. Some of the scripts and scrolls that were granted to musala is Salatu was Salam were in it. And at the same time, some other artifacts, something was in it, that Allah Subhana Allah Allah knows best.
And Allah says, this will be sent down to you, the angels will be holding it and they will bring it down in front of you. And if that happens, it will be assigned for the believers and the sign of the appointment of this king over you. Lo and behold, that exactly happened as described by the Navy, the angels came down and brought the Ark of the Covenant and they placed it there these people believed in that is when they agreed that this man was the king and Allah subhanho wa Taala thereafter, makes mention of how they were tested with the river we spoke about yesterday, where the bulk of them though they were instructed not to drink they drank and so on, and then the war that
ensued and after that, that would lie in salatu salam, the young David May peace be upon him with his sling managed to kill jaoude who is known as Goliath. And after that, he became very famous Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him lots of strength. Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him leadership. Allah gave him knowledge. Allah gave him Nobu and Prophethood later on. It is important for us to know that there are many narrations doing their rounds which are incorrect. They have seeped through
And the reason why I constantly use the word Hebrew Scriptures is to make it very clear to us that it is foreign to us. We have got it from Israel. We've got it from the Jewish scriptures. Now I have explained right at the beginning of the series, that whenever we speak about Jewish scriptures, we believe as Muslims, that if the Quran confirms what the Jewish scriptures have, then we will believe it and accepted because the Quran has it. If the Quran rejects it, we reject it because the Quran has rejected it. And if the Quran is silent regarding matters of history that are brought to us by the Jewish or the Hebrew Scriptures, known as Isa aliette, in that case, we believe firmly learners
of the colon Academy, which means we neither accept the information, nor do we reject it totally, we don't actually need it. Sadly, a lot of it is blasphemous, blasphemous, meaning they begin to say that Sulaiman and a Salam did this. And the Prophet David committed that sin and this sin and so on. All this is blasphemy. I explained it a few days back, we as Muslims believe that these people were the highest, the most pious, the best from the lot who were chosen by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he would not choose a sinful men to be a messenger. So that is the difference. Now sadly, you will open some of our books of history. And you find some of the historians do not make mention of the
fact that this is a Hebrew narration. This is a Jewish narration, this is his led wire, and they just make mention of it, and we start narrating it as folktale to our people and people begin to think Well, that was the sin of the Nabhi Allah protect us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. So that was a very, very important point to raise. Some people said pollute, the king became jealous of the key of doubt and a Salaam and plotted to kill him and so on. All that comes to us from a foreign source, we ask Allah to protect us and protect our books. And we ask Allah to grant us knowledge. Remember, there are certain things we don't need to know. We don't need to know there
is no point in knowing something that is inaccurate. If there is something that is shady, we can actually discount it completely. And we can excuse ourselves from even knowing it may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the respect of all the NBA, and all those whom he has chosen. I mean, Allah bless them all.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how he gave out a salatu salam scriptures. Later on as the King died down a Salam was appointed as a king Subhan Allah, and Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about it. Why should that
matter? Well, first,
we established his kingdom, so we made him a king, and we granted him Prophethood. The term hikma here is used to refer to Prophet hood, and we gave him sound judgment. So he was a TA D, which means he used to judge between people, and at the same time he was a king, and at the same time, he was an OB, and at the same time, he was a great saint. This was the Prophet that would David May peace be upon him, King Nabhi great saint and judge at the same time, and together with that Allah had granted him more power in that we explained yesterday. Yeah, g ba, ba ba Ma.
Need some of the gifts given to the Prophet Dawood, when he engaged in test be the trees, the mountains, the birds all engaged in to speak with him. And the beauty of it is, people used to sit and watch so huddled in amazement, we can hear all these creatures of Allah repeating the words of doubt Allah is salatu salam amazing and this is why the Quran says in another place. Why?
Shane in bihu be handy.
Kahuna just be home. Every single creature of Allah subhanho wa Taala engages in the praise and the test be of Allah subhanho wa Taala but you Oh man, do not understand and comprehend that this be so whether it is a three look at what Allah says in Surah Rahman.
Allahu Akbar, one Niger, Masha Yes, Judah.
Allah speaks about how the stars prostrate in the trees prostrate for Allah subhanho wa Taala delivers we know it I'm sure we've heard it so many times have we thought of what it means. So how does the tree prostrate? I don't know You don't know. Just like if we were to take for example.
Let's say any animal let's say a sheep if the sheep was to come here, how it praises Allah we don't know and how we praise Allah it does not know Subhana Allah, but we are all praising Allah subhanho wa Taala Can you please keep quiet
Listen, keep quiet.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted us this tan and Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us the ability to use it in the correct manner. And this is why whilst we have it let's keep it wet with the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala
we are taught that this tongue is a gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala if you are not going to occupy it in the remembrance of Allah, it will occupy you in the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now what we learn from the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us every form of goodness, and Allah subhanho wa Taala opened our doors, Allah says
he used to praise Allah, He used to engage in worship. He used to judge between people he used to fast every second day, throughout his life. And he used to engage in prayer throughout the night or a portion of the night a fixed portion. One narration says a third of the night, every night. And yet he was the king and he was granted the wealth more than anybody else at the time. And he was granted above that the power to communicate with other creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And on top of that, he was in Nabhi of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But look at the humbleness look at the humility.
He used to sit in meet people he was loved by everyone that would Allah His salatu salam was loved by everyone. He was a great worrier. We forgot to mention that he was a powerful warrior. There was so many wars that took place during the life of doubt. Allahu salatu salam and Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of how he was victorious shed that the nambucca who we established his kingdom and we granted it increase, which means he was winning all the battles. And the Ark of the Covenant was there with them. Once again. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us victory.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala says he was one who was able to hold the people together. One of the reasons is he was just very just, he used to sit and judge between people in a manner that was completely just and this is why everyone loves him because justice will lead the rest of the people to love the one who is just when you are not just and you favor one party or you are corrupt. Tomorrow there will be others who are corrupt and they will rule against you in favor of someone else. So it continues We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us a lesson of justice. Allah makes mention of a beautiful story in the Quran, which we'd like to mention this evening. Allah says,
while hell attack cannibal Hassan is
did the story of the two who are arguing over are the two who are disputing over a matter. Did that story come to you? Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Now allies relating the story
before we mentioned the detail that would add a Salaam used to pray in the Makarov is like a prayer room way in seclusion. He used to pray, nobody was allowed to disturb him. Whilst he was praying, nobody at all. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has told us that when he was in this murghab, these two people suddenly scaled the wall and they got into the mirror. How no one knows.
Because they were gods. There was a big wall around, nobody was allowed to enter this palace and within the palace, there was a room and in that room, there was a place of worship, and that is without a salon was as he's worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. He sees two men. And he was shocked. He tells me they climbed over and they got to them
is da da da, da
da da have Hussman, e Ba ba ba ba ba,
ba Nabeel happy Walla
as he was slightly frightened by their appearance there because he didn't expect them. They told him Don't worry, don't fear. We are two parties who are who have a dispute amongst us. We want you to judge between us with the truth. And we want you not to be unfair and unjust law to split, do not go against that which is fair and just and guide us to the straight path guide as to what is correct in this matter. So he looked at them and he's listening to the matter.
So listen to this matter, and judge for yourself. Let's see, Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
law what is wrong room What is owner john
Hayden sakala actually Neha was zenni orba
This was the matter. This is my brother. He has 99 sheep. And I have this is a female sheep. He has 99 sheep and I have one we are partners. He is asking me for my one as well. And he has powerful speech, his speech has overpowered me. Now you tell us what should happen? Is it fair
99 sheep, he's got on one side, his partner has one sheep. And this partner who has 99 is saying no, I want that one as well. who is right and who is wrong?
Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us goodness, I can imagine what's in our minds.
So doubt Allah is Salatu was salam, just like we are all thinking here. He responded. He says, kala la de la camisa, arlena jotika Ilana gene, he says, look, it is oppression, to take one, how can he take this one and include it into his 99 to make it 100. That is oppression. He should be from amongst those who understands you can't do that.
Then he continues to make a powerful statement which we need today. Every one of us we need it so dearly. today.
La Isla de
la Vina man.
He says most partners oppress one another in their partnership.
Besides those who believe in Allah and do good deeds, and they are very, very few.
Let's stop there for a moment. This is discouraging people from engaging in unnecessary partnership, you have a partnership, you need to have a big heart, you need to be a person who does not love wealth. Number one, you need to have a man and you need to do good deeds, and you need to aim for the era. That is when your partnership will work. Otherwise the day it breaks, it will be so so and so difficult, that you may never be seeing eye to eye yet you operated together for the last 40 years. Because that's what wealth does. That's what partnership does. This is why partnership in Islam, we should know is a last resort, you really don't have wealth, you've got expertise, the
other one has a lot of wealth, no expertise, he can give you the wealth and you can share 5050 when you do all the work with the wealth that He has given you and so on. But that is necessity, without necessity, break that partnership. Without necessity. You need to make sure going on your own there is no Baraka, Allah Subhana Allah, Allah grant us Baraka, this verse, he says, kathira mineral coolatta, most or many of the people who are partners, they oppress one another, they take from one another, they owe one another. There is a red line that they've crossed with one another, besides those who believe and do good deeds, and they are very, very few waka Li Luma home.
Now, as he uttered this, he looks around, these people have disappeared. They disappeared. They were gone. Who are they? They were angel sent by Allah subhanho wa Taala to test it out. Allahu salatu salam to test him regarding what? How can you issue a decree and the verdict without listening to the other party? No matter what crossed your mind when we gave you the story from one side, you did not listen to the other side of the story.
So that would Allahu salatu wa sallam immediately when he didn't see them, he realized, he says,
immediately he knew that Allah is testing him. So he sought forgiveness and he fell prostrate. And when we read this verse a few days ago in the terror we have, we also fell prostrate. We also seek Allah's forgiveness. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala opened our doors remember, when we fall prostrate in Salah whilst we are reading the Quran, it is either because Allah asks us to fall prostrate, or it is because Allah is mentioning how certain good worshipers of his in the past they frustrated or how some of the creatures of Allah frustrated so we will also prostrate just like them or how some people when it was told to them to prostrate they refuse to prostrate. So we put that aside and we
prostrate. So these are some of the reasons why we find these frustrations. As you are reading. You put the Quran aside and you drop immediately to the ground for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala we are not proud and arrogant. We will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the moral of this
is no matter what we need to listen to two sides of the story. A few days ago I received an email from someone asking me a question, and they told me there are always three sides to a story. This side the other side and the truth. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness nowadays, sometimes both are telling a lie. There was a time when when
He's lying when he's telling the truth or dispute, but nowadays This one is lying, that one is also lying. So it's true. The truth is somewhere in between. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a good sense of judgment. Allah says, Yeah, you Hello levena mano de la hija de la como con are you who believe if you are conscious of Allah, He will grant you a sense of judgment. He will grant you the ability to distinguish between right and wrong, on condition that you are conscious of Allah and you have Taqwa May Allah make us God fearing at all times.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala thereafter says, After doubt, a salatu salam sought forgiveness and so on Allah says, forgotten Allah who Gallic war in Allahu
Indeed, we forgive doubt Allah in salat wa salam, and we want to tell you, he has such a close rank to us. He is very, very close to us. We have granted him a close rank to us and we have granted him a good abode. Good place, good status. Allah subhanahu wa taala granted that to doubt Allah His salatu salam, so he was very close to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then Allah appoints him, Allah says, Jada Udo in naka de
oro de o de would we have appointed you a successor on the earth.
She will have
to be in house. So judge between the people with justice and do not follow your own whims and fancies. Don't follow your desire. A judge is meant to judge by listening to the truth by seeing the evidence not by what is in his brain. A judge in the Sharia is meant to see the evidence, not by what is in his brain. He is supposed to judge according to what is in front of him in terms of evidence.
And at this point that would Allah His Salatu was Salam when they had jumped over, and they appeared in front of him. He was surprised, astonished. We are taught in the Sharia of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, la casa de Luca de binus Nino who
was a judge is very angry. He's not allowed to judge he must hold must tell the people come back when I'm calm. When he's very hungry. He's not allowed to judge haram prohibited he must tell them come back when I'm okay. When he is for example, emotional, he must tell them to go away until he is fine. So any adverse condition the judge in the Sharia is not allowed to judge because imagine sometimes you very angry, the next man that comes you might send him to the gallows. Allah safeguard us, execute him for nothing just because you had a problem at home, the social unrest back at home, Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us goodness. And this is the beauty of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Sharia. And this is why the judges are meant to be the best paid people because nobody should be able to bribe them. Not at all. Whatever you want to give them they already are earning more than that. hamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a wide sense of judgment with us. The difficulty is we judge forget about being upset and angry and emotional, and sending people to the gallows and destroying entire communities, although we supposed to be having the sense of justice within us, but we lose it because of senility and we lose it because our brains are covered by shape and sometimes now Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us the anger, the temper, the temperament, the weather, the
heat, all other adverse effects, sometimes because we follow shavon so much, Allah snatches away the ability to distinguish between right and wrong from us. Like I said, the verse of the Quran says it is only if you fear Allah that you will have the correct sense of justice. So those who have no fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala you can forget about their correct sense of justice. Hence you find so many innocent people languishing in our prisons, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, and the criminals get away scot free. Now Allah Subhana Allah to Allah grant us Justice, and may He make us from those really, who can whenever we are judged for or against it should be upon justice. I
mean, so Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We told him do not follow your whims and fancies. Because if you follow your desires, it will lead you astray, while at the beginning for you,
Sabina in unani Naomi Luna Sabina Isla Hamada boo Shadi be Manoj soo young woman as
Allah says, Those who follow their desires, when it comes to anything and everything whether it is judging or whether it is following their desires in doing certain items and certain things. Allah says they are the ones who will be losers.
They are the ones who will be losers. And Allah says because of what they have forgotten, they will be granted severe punishment. They will be granted severe punishment.
Even in the Sahara, so we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to safeguard us that is a beautiful lesson we've learned. Then Allah says, while our heaven
and we gave them a gift, what was the gift? His son Sulaiman. Some people say we are confused how to remember who is the son and who is the father, I normally say the word is the D for the dead, he is the father. And Suleiman is the s for the son, he is the son, simple way of remembering. So the Odin Sulaiman, you will never forget who was the father and who was the son. So Allah says, what will happen Allie there.
We gave the award as a gift, his sons will a man named malaba, what an excellent worshiper in
he used to turn to us often, Allahu Akbar, turn in repentance often. So the man Allah His Salam grew up, very, very intelligent young boy, watching his father judge, he used to sit on the side and listen. And as time passed, Allah gave him more wisdom and so on. And one a few times there is mentioned made of him, interrupting in his father's judging, and putting forward his suggestion as a young boy. Let's make mention of some of this, because it is correct. Authentic narration in Swahili authentic narration Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has told us that one day, they were two women who had babies, little babies. And they had put their babies down and gone to do something
either in the field or somewhere. And one of the babies was snatched by a wolf or a fox.
And they came back to find only one. So the older woman is saying it's my child. The younger one is saying it's my child. What did they do? They said, Let's go to Davos. They went to doubt Allahu salatu salam and told him the story. And he looked at the matter. And he considered both he probably thought that you know, the older one, let her take the child because the younger one can have another child inshallah. So he says, to the older one, you can take the child and the younger one, you know, it's not your child and let the older one take the child. And so a man and a salami young boy sitting there, he says, Oh, my father, I have an opinion. The father says, Yes, my son, imagine
with us we would get very upset. I have my son fiddling here on the right side and it's irritating me Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, grant us goodness.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in fact, we are taught by Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he says, Yes, my son, what is it? Speak to me Tell me. So he says, look,
Now both of the women are listening. Dad, let's bring a knife. We cut this child in half, give half to her and half to this one. That's it.
So now the two of them look at each other doubt Allahu salatu salam is trying to agree with his son. And as he's trying to agree with the son.
The little one says no, not at all. No ways. We want to have mercy on this child. Nevermind no problem giving the child to the older one. Whereas the older one was just silent, looking at the chair.
So Sulaiman at a salon says, Dad, don't you think that this child belongs to the younger one, she has more mercy over the child than the older one. The older one was more or less prepared to let her go in half. And the younger one says no, give it away. We have mercy. So that would la salatu salam ruled that that child go to the younger one Subhana Allah and he benefited from his son. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us children whom we can benefit from as well. And may Allah grant us children who can correct us in a beautiful manner and may He make us from those who do not get irritated with our own children.
I mean, I mean,
so Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then there is another beautiful story also mentioned in the Quran. beautiful story mentioned in the Quran, Allah says
regarding the two people who had come in, two people came in, and Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how they disputed a certain matter to Sulaiman. alayhi salatu was Salam
ala Suleiman in a coma and even how he is never shed fee on a mono comb or canal, he hooked me him. shahidi Allah says there was an issue which came in front of Tao and Suleiman alayhi salatu was Salam aleikum wa salam. And it was regarding the flock of one person and the crop of the other. The flock of one man grazed on the land of the other way. He had a great plantation, and it ate all the plantation. And so the two of them came, the one says, My plantation is gone. It's eaten by the flock of this man. So what should happen that would add a salatu salam is giving the ruling. And Allah says we were watching.
Meaning Allah is watching. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says farhana Suleiman
we gave its understanding to the Sunnah Sulaiman
So the ruling of Tao was that very simple, your crop is gone, this man's sheep have eaten your crop or his flock have eaten your crop. So let him take the flock and you go away with nothing, because your flock is to blame. He asked him a question, is it true that your flock was responsible? He says, Yes, my flock was responsible, in that case, give you a flock to him, and you people can go away. The son says, Oh, my father, I have something to say. So a man, Allah gave him wisdom. He was very, very wise.
He said, If that is what happened, then give that man the flock, and give the other man the farm. And let him look after the farm until it gets to a point where it was before the flock ate the crop. And in the interim, this man can benefit from that man's flock by having the milk and by having the wool and at the same time by benefiting from any resultant offspring. Whilst it's in his care, he will look after the flock and benefit when the crop is back at its place. This man returns the flock to the owner, original owner, and that man will come back to this one and give him all his land again with the crop exactly where it was. So hon Allah, look at how deep this statement is. We have
to sit and think about what exactly was said here. And it is so miraculous. What a judgement May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant a sound judgment, how fair how just because if it was given to one, the one would have lost everything.
And yet the other one would have had his farm and on top of that of luck,
so here this was completely fake. This was another one mentioned in the Quran, Allah says farhana has
woken up, Tina,
we granted the understanding of this one here to suit a man and a salon. And both of them we gave them kingdom and we gave them knowledge. We gave them new Buddha and we also gave him Kingdom they were kings and prophets at the same time. And Allah says, was a foreigner
Jeeva Allah, us have been our Tyra
ferrini and Tao de la Salam Allah mentions yet again in another place in the Quran here that we made the mountains and the trees and other creatures engage in test B whenever he engaged in this B.
Meeting. And Allah says, well, Ellen Allahu Hadid. We spoke about it yesterday how the metal was made soft for him very soft. So he was the one who used to make all the armor and so on. And they used to win all the time, he developed a certain armor, that was the best of the time. And Allah subhanho wa Taala granted him victory after victory. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of something very, very interesting again as well.
That would Allah is salatu wa sallam, It is reported that he had
a castle where his wives were. And around that castle, there was a wall he used to ensure that nobody came into there. He was very possessive over his wives, very possessive. No man would come near no one.
So one day
there was a man in the courtyard. These wives noticed a man in the courtyard.
And they told they said to themselves, If thou la salatu salam has to get to know of this men, he will be dealt with severely. So that was his salatu wa sallam calls the man and asked him who are you?
He says, I am the one who nobody can stop. You can have a wall you can have a castle you can do what you want, cannot stop me.
Immediately he knew this is the angel of death.
The Angel of Death because that is the only one he can come to you, wherever you are. Absolutely. Anyway, nothing can stop him. besides Allah subhanho wa Taala. So though that is Salatu was Salam then welcomed him.
I imagine he's now welcoming him. This man who had power, he had authority. He had so much kingdom, he had lots and lots of items that nobody can imagine. Whilst we were seated here. He controlled so much people and some creatures of Allah used to obey His instructions. He had one of the most powerful armies at the time, and he's ready to go.
Because he used to engage in a battle. He was a person whom his wealth, his power, his his authority, never ever made him forget the fact that he has to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. At night he was alone with Allah crying, crying.
And during the day he was fasting every second day. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us the best fast is that of doubt Allah is Allah
Salah he used to fast every second day. And he used to stand the third of the night every night in prayer. And imagine what he had. This reminds us What do we have? We don't even have a fraction the richest from amongst us doesn't even have 1 million of what doubt Allah is salatu wa sallam has had many we want to talk to the wall, people will take us to the main hospital.
We don't even have that. And yet, we find ourselves lazy to read Salah lazy to fast, lazy to read the Quran, lazy to engage in any act of worship. And then we want to cling to dear life with all fours lavaca
We would love life if someone told you brother, I will show you a medication that will increase your life by a few years. I think it would be sold out within minutes. It's effect because we all want to live here is this man so humble, loved by his people because of justice. He was ready to go because he did not allow the dunya and this world to make him forget where he came from and where he is heading.
This is the Prophet Dawood alayhi salatu salam, thereafter, he tells the angel you can take my soul, and it is reported that the angel took the soul of doubt la salatu salam, and thereafter we find some hanabi Allah Allah, It is reported that in his janazah to carry his
body to the grave, they would 10s of 1000s of people. And not only that, the birds came as well.
And when the birds came, Suleiman alayhi salatu salam instructed them now this is the sun. This was one of his first instructions to the birds. Why did he have to instruct them? It is reported it was a very, very hot day, very hot day. There were no clouds, no wind, and the sun was shining, as though entire creation was in mourning.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala has gifted Sulaiman alayhi salaatu wa sallam, what he did, he told the birds to create a barrier between the people and the sun. So they were just hovering in a huge flock hovering above and they created shade for those who are bidding the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and that is when the Prophet Suleiman Allahu salatu salam was recognized as the one Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well, what if as soon as a man Buddha Buddha, indeed Suleiman inherited the wood into things in His Kingdom, as well as in Prophethood, which means he got exactly what his father was holding, it was given to the Son, may Allah subhanho wa Taala, open our doors let's remember,
whenever we worship Allah, whenever we struggle for the path of in the path of Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah to play to please Allah subhanho wa Taala for his pleasure, we will always find that Allah will choose from amongst our offspring, those who will take the same path.
And I'm sure in our midst, we have people in one field, their children join them more or less, a few of their children will join them in the field. So you have a doctor, his son is a doctor grandson, a doctor, I think after three, four generations, they start becoming plumbers and so on. But there is sometimes you have a plumber, and you have the son is a plumber and the son is one of the biggest, most famous plumbers you could ever have. After that they become doctors maybe we had to balance it so we don't offend anyone. shala
and the same would apply if we are to save the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala correctly every day you reading the Quran aloud in your home in the morning, your children will come around you no sooner do you open your eyes and you will notice your children are also holding the Koran right next to you.
You read your Salah every single day you find your one year old child who doesn't understand how to communicate with you Institute next to you. Well, law hits effect I'm sure we've seen it why this shows us the power the power of being a role model by action, not even by words. We need to behave in a specific manner proper role model, there is no point in telling your child to dress appropriately and you yourself are semi naked. If you were to dress in hijab, your child at the age of two and three we'll say I want to hear what you got mummy fact, isn't it? I'm sure we've seen it. You put on something on your head from a young age the child will want to put on the same thing. May
Allah subhanho wa Taala make us people who are living examples for our children. Remember, the most powerful way of bringing up a child is just to lead by example. That's the most powerful way and keep them within the environment that you love them to be in. Because sometimes and it's important we say this, we have a perfect environment in the home. But when they go to the school, the environment is so bad that they lose all the values that they learned within the house. They lose all the values that they learned within the house because they are now contaminated with so many different things and they lead a double life. So it's important for us to choose the school
Carefully and it's important for us sometimes we might have to make a decision to school them at home. Some people have done that, depending where you live and what you have around you and the choices you have and so on. May Allah subhanahu wa taala make it easy for us. I think I've said a lot regarding the Prophet doubt Allah is Salatu was Salam and his son Sulayman Allah salatu salam, we have further details of that son, tomorrow when we will see how Allah subhanho wa Taala had given him even more than his own father soleimani alayhi salam made the dua to Allah that we need to understand it was such a powerful inshallah we will see that tomorrow We ask Allah Subhana which
