00:03:45--> 00:04:08

as always, we pray we begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala who is our Creator, sustain, nourish, protect and curate May the choices to have his blessings and salutations be upon our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family members his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of Yama.

00:04:10--> 00:04:43

of slaves of Allah first and foremost, I begin by advising myself and then all of you all who are present here to adopt a life of taqwa. For that is the ultimate goal that we have been sent to this earth for, to adopt a life of taqwa to fear a loss behind and who are diala and to be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala during every single second of our lives, Allah himself says in the noble for an AMA file.

O mankind or

00:05:33--> 00:06:11

worship your Lord Allah Kanaka como la de la con, the one who created your and those before you learn that akun worship your Lord so that you will become people of taqwa. So that you fear of loss behind a hautala and so that you be conscious of Allah subhana wa Tada. So if we wish to attain success in this world as well as the Hereafter, it is upon us to fear a loss of behind $1 and to be conscious of a loss of the high net worth during every single second of our lives. May Allah Almighty make us all from the people of taqwa.

00:06:13--> 00:06:27

And secondly, it is incumbent upon all of us to thank Allah subhana wa tada for the numerous bounties and favors that he has conferred upon us, Allahu Akbar, as he himself says in the Noble Quran, what

00:06:29--> 00:06:32

matane la isla de su assume

00:06:33--> 00:07:20

that if you were to try and enumerate the favours of Allah Subhana Allah, if you were to try and count the blessings of Allah subhana wa dialler suha you will not be able to encompass all of the blessings of a loss of a highlight what we would fail miserably to try and encompass all of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And personally, I thank Allah subhanho wa Taala I thanked him profusely for this beautiful opportunity where Allah the Almighty has blessed me to visit the beautiful coral islands of the Maldives and to meet all of y'all for no other reason other than the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala So at the very outset of this gathering, I wish to express that I

00:07:20--> 00:08:06

love all of y'all for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and I pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala that he the almighty makes this evening and the following few days that we are going to spend together insha Allah, a source of benefit for all of us in this world, as well as the hereafter. And then as our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that the person who does not tank mankind, the one who does not tank the people has not tanked Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, in accordance to the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I thank the organizers of this event. And I pray that Allah subhana wa Taala bless them and give them the best

00:08:06--> 00:08:59

of this world and the hereafter. So before we delve into this evenings topic, I wish to share with you all a beautiful Hadith, a hadith that I hope will inspire all of y'all. This Hadith is recorded in Muslim, Abu huraira Ravi a long line who narrates that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said, Majid tema, comun fee baiting Minh boo Tila heeta Allah yes Luna kita Bala he waiata da rasuna who've been at home, no gathering, no gathering gathers together in one of the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala. reciting the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and studying it amongst themselves in Lana's aleteia la hemos Sakina. washy at Mirage ma we're Halford mela, you can

00:09:00--> 00:09:46

record a hula hoop theme and have a look at the virtual last behind him with Allah has blessed gatherings of this nature. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that except that Sakina will start to descend on that gathering. The Ruffner of philosophy behind the Houma dialer will envelop that gathering and the melodica the angels will shroud and surround that gathering and Allah the Almighty mentioned those people who are involved in that gathering amongst those who are with him with Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah the Almighty talks about that gathering with the melodica Allah Akbar. So May Allah behind them what Allah make this gathering, a gathering,

00:09:46--> 00:09:57

where the Sakina descends upon us and Rafa for lost behind and what Allah envelops us and the melodica shroud us with their rings and May Allah the Almighty make high mention of us in the seven heavens.

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

So mighty respected and

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

Brothers and sisters in Islam, we move on to the topic of this evening. The topic is the hands that rocked your cradle. The hands that rocked your cradle, we will be touching on another great blessing as we said in the beginning, the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala a numerous so this topic inshallah Allah the content around this topic we will be touching on another great blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala from the numerous blessings that he has favored us with. That is our parents. We will be talking about our parents, we'll be talking about the responsibilities each and every one of us we have towards our parents, the rights of our parents upon us. My dear respected elders,

00:10:48--> 00:11:36

brothers and sisters in Islam, this home of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is indeed a blessing Ouma the oma of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a blessing oma, as we are constantly moving from one virtue to another virtue, from one mercy to another mercy, Allah Akbar. We keep moving in ranks. Allah, the Almighty, He created the creation, he created everything that you can see around you. He created all of the creation. And then he stood behind him who had the Allah He gave virtue and superiority to some of his creation over others in a manner that defeats His glory. Lost behind him with Allah says in the Quran, well, buka lopen.

00:11:43--> 00:12:30

Lost behind them who at Allah, your Lord, he creates whatever he wills and chooses, and they the creation did not have the luxury of that choice. He creates whatever he wishes, and he chooses from them whatever he wishes, Exalted is Allah subhanho wa Taala. And high above what they associate with him. Allah subhanho wa Taala is free from all of that. For if we were to take the seven heavens, the seven heavens of us behind them with Allah He created all of the seven heavens and then once you was given to the seventh heaven, the reason being due to the proximity of the seventh heaven to the ultra philosophy behind the island, the Seventh Heaven is the closest to the answer philosophy

00:12:30--> 00:13:19

behind them Medina, the arch upon which a lot of the Almighty powerful make ascended upon in a manner that befits his majesty and glory, Allah, Allah the Almighty created the melodica he created the angels and virtue was given to jabril virtue was given to Mecca in virtue was given to Israel feel AlLahi wa Salatu was Salam gibril alayhi salatu was Salam is the ark Angel, he was known as aminal walkie he was the one who brought down why to the messengers to the Rasul Allah Hema Salatu was Salam. Mecca in Allahu Salatu was Salam from amongst all of the angels. He was given the responsibility of prohibitions and reigns. He Seraphin alayhi salatu was Salam was given the

00:13:19--> 00:13:37

responsibility of the trumpet. And according to the hadith of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is Raphael Allah He Surat. wasallam has already placed the trumpet on his lips and he is waiting for the command of Allah behind the hula dialer to blow the trumpet to commence the day of kurama.

00:13:38--> 00:14:23

Allah the Almighty He created paradise he created the Jinnah and gave virtue to general fiddles, which is the highest of paradise. Allah the Almighty created mankind he created NASS and Allah behind them who are dialer give virtue to the prophets, Allah hemos salat wa salam, O Allah the Almighty from the prophets, he gave virtue to the Rasul be talking about the Gambia and from them Allah subhanho wa Taala gave virtue to the Rasul and from the Rasul Allah subhanho wa Taala gave virtue to oral azim from the Ambien. daru salam aleikum. Wa Salatu was Salam. And they are number one. They are five in number. Item number one Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam number two new

00:14:23--> 00:15:00

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam by giving them the title hollein Allah, the friends of Allah subhanho wa Taala and from these two great friends of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah the Almighty gave virtue to our beloved Prophet Muhammad

00:15:00--> 00:15:18

Sultan Allahu alayhi wa sallam May my mother my father and myself be ransom for him. Allah the Almighty made him the best of prophets and made him the best of mankind. And we are from the oma of that great Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:15:21--> 00:16:06

These are all from the virtues of Allah subhanho wa Taala. My beloved Chief, Imam Ibn Al Karim Rahim Allah. He says he reports from one of our cellphone asylee he says that if you want to know how great the virtue of Allah subhana wa Taala is upon you, just close your eyes for a few moments. Just close your eyes for a few moments. What happens when you close your eyes, everything around you becomes duck. The minute you close your eyes, everything around you becomes duck, then you understand the world you have the eyesight that Allah Subhana Allah has blessed you with. Without it you will not be able to walk in front of you. Everything is going to be picked up so many blessings

00:16:06--> 00:16:31

of Allah subhanho wa Taala we are swimming in an ocean of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala Our lives have permeated basically saturated in the Rajma philosophy behind them who Adana so great is the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and from these numerous blessings, mature, respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam comes about the valuable blessing of our parents

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

are powerful maker. As

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

he says

00:16:57--> 00:16:57

Hi,

and your Lord has decreed that you worship none other than Him. And that you be excellent that you'd be excellent to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life. Do not say to them fill out akula Houma Oof. Do not say the word of that is a word of disrespect, nor shout at them, but address them in terms of honor, address them with kind words and lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy and say robair ham Houma Tamara dyani Saavedra, my Lord, bestow on them your mercy as they did bring me up when I was young. This is where Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us in the Noble Quran. Now let's look at a few highlights of the ayah number one,

00:18:30--> 00:19:00

Allah the Almighty has brought the command treat your parents well treat your parents with excellent right after the command of a bad law will call darbuka Allah tabuteau illa iya will be involved in a Sunnah he has brought the command worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and then right after that, what is the command? give out? Sokka first Ramadan, make hij ne treat your parents with excellence

00:19:01--> 00:19:14

right after the command of a Baba treat your parents with excellent in Surah Luqman Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well I was saying in Santa bhiwani de

00:19:17--> 00:19:18

na

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

na na na

00:19:25--> 00:19:26

na na na

00:19:28--> 00:19:30

na na

00:19:33--> 00:19:35

na na na si

00:19:36--> 00:19:51

and we have enjoined upon man care for his parents his mother carried him weakness upon weakness wasn't an Allah one. And his weaning was in two years and he could Li while he while he take

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

so that he be grateful to me a lot behind him. What are they saying this so that he be grateful to me

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

And to your parents.

00:20:03--> 00:20:39

Initially while he while he they, so that you be grateful to me and then your parents first the command was a Baba and right after that I was behind on what Allah brought the command of being good to your parents. Now in this ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala and then to your parents Allahu Akbar sugar. Look at this all of this highlights the importance of how well we need to treat our parents excellence upon excellence. Now coming back to the main idea that I recited, if they attain old age, we are not supposed to say even

00:20:41--> 00:21:32

scholars of Tafseer Imam Mujahid Rahim Allah, He says, In regard to that he makes the seed. He says even if your parents do to their old age, even if they start to urinate on themselves, because naturally, the minute they become old, they lose control of their bladders. Even if they were to urinate on themselves, even if they were to pass to do not look at them with disgust. Do not say off. Why? Because you're supposed to do that to your parents. You're supposed to clean them up. You're supposed to look after them. Because they did the very same thing for you. When you were young, you urinated on yourself. You were not able to control yourself. You pass stool, and they

00:21:32--> 00:22:15

very lovingly, they never did it out of disgust. They never looked at you with contempt. They never looked at you with hate name. They picked you up lovingly. Even if you were to pass urine three, four times a day. They used to pick you up lovingly take you to the washroom and wash you clean, you do everything with so much of love our parents, but when they become old, when they become like children, why do we look at them with so much of hate? Why do we look at them? Why do we screw up our faces? Why do we show disgust in when we are looking after our parents? Mr. Mujahid Rahim Allah says you're not even supposed to show the slightest change in your face when it comes to the service

00:22:15--> 00:22:34

of your parents. But sadly, many of us we remain oblivious to the fact that we have to treat our parents well when they have attained old age many of our parents. When I look at the gathering, if our parents are alive, they're obviously going to be

00:22:35--> 00:23:21

of an old age, we are supposed to look after them in a treatment that is up to par excellence upon excellence. Even at bus rodeo long line. He says that three i a three is a tie with three things. I am number one are to learn how to do soon as you learn how to do soon, you're supposed to obey Allah behind them with Allah and obey the messenger of Allah behind them who are the island. If you were to only obey Allah behind them with Allah and not the Messenger of Allah behind them with Allah, your obedience to Allah the Almighty will not count. These three things go hand in hand three is to learn how to rule if you only obey the messenger and not obey Allah that also will not count does

00:23:21--> 00:24:05

that is number one. Number two will Akiko salatu wa to Sokka establish your Salah and give out your Sokka if you were to only establish salah and not give out xhaka your Salah also will not be valid, it will not be counted. You're supposed to do all these things go hand in hand. I am number three initially will invalidate. Be thankful to me Allah subhanho wa Taala saying this and then be thankful to your parents. If you're only thankful to Allah subhana wa Taala and you haven't spoken to your mom or your dad for the past 10 years for the past 15 years over the past 10 five months, that thankfulness to Allah subhanho wa Taala will not count because all of these things go hand in

00:24:05--> 00:24:40

hand even above the law one who mentioned this, for if we were to act, the opposite of what I'm saying bill will validate if we were to not show good treatment and to our parents that would be regarded as cuckoo Valley then we have we have shown disrespect unto our parents and Allah save us all mature, respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam are cuckoo holiday is from the evil signs of the day of the AMA And may Allah subhanahu wa tada not make us part of an evil sign of the day of glioma.

00:24:41--> 00:24:42

There's a famous Hadith

00:24:44--> 00:24:45

known as Hadith jabrill.

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

Time does not permit me to go into the length of the Hadith beautiful Heidi, we just come to the point that I wish to highlight in that Heidi gibreel alayhi salatu salam goes to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I just

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

Give you the synopsis of the Hadith. Okay, it goes along the lines of these words. And he asked, he goes in the guise of a human being, he goes in the guise of a human being and asks Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam questions. He asks him questions in a way that the answers of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam will be as a lesson for the whole room at large. He goes and asks your supervisor along while he was setting them up with me and Islam, tell me about Islam, and then also realize that Allahu Allah who seldom answers teaching us what Islam is the five pillars of Islam, then for me, I need a man, tell me about a man. And then he teaches us the six articles of faith.

00:25:39--> 00:25:44

And then he says, Give me a lesson. And then the next question is a bit neonates.

00:25:45--> 00:26:15

Tell me about the last on the Day of Judgment Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had identified that this man who has come is none other than jabril alayhi salatu salam, he replies a very beautiful and eloquent reply mail Massoud one hobby Allah minister in he says that the one who is being questioned, the supervisor Allahu alayhi wa sallam knows no better than the question is, you and I on the same level.

00:26:16--> 00:26:28

I don't know when the day of the AMA will take place. Nor do you know when the day of the AMA will take place. That is knowledge reserved for Allah subhanho wa Taala. Only Allah the Almighty knows that.

00:26:29--> 00:26:54

Then jabril alayhi salatu salam says, Bill Nana maratea. So tell me about the signs of the day of the AMA. Then those who realize that Allahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us and this is what Allah behind them what Allah had taught us who lives in La Jolla who said them this one statement, and that is the point that is the showerhead. why I brought this hadith that is the point at which I wish to highlight and thirdly, the AMA to rock better Ha, ha ha revising

00:26:56--> 00:27:34

that a slave girl will give birth to her mistress in another narration to her master. Now this statement of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, many scholars gave different interpretations. The direct translation to that statement is that a slave girl will give birth to her mistress in another narration to her master. So some scholars, they explained that statement of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam as being that now we don't have slavery these days, so it's not applicable anymore. But at that time when slavery was applicable,

00:27:36--> 00:28:31

they explain that a man who owns a slave will have a relationship with that slave, okay, that is Helen, and he will get a child from that relationship. And that child will grow up as the son of the master, the owner of the slave. Now he owns the slave who is the mother of the child, what he does the master, he will sell the slave in the market. Now the boy grows up in the Masters house, and after say, perhaps 10 or 20 years, this slave girl, who in reality was his mother, she will go around the market and without his knowledge, one day he buys her. He buys her as a slave girl, but not knowing that she is his mother. This is one explanation given by the scholars. But personally, I

00:28:31--> 00:28:58

prefer the explanation of Imam even harder. Alas, Kalani Rahim Allah, because it beautifully fits the context. Let me give you the explanation. Mr. Rogers Kalani Rahim Allah He explains by saying and tell you the llama to Robert Aha. This statement indicates that towards the latter stages towards the latter times, in other words, towards the day of Korea, what will happen is, tables will turn.

00:28:59--> 00:29:10

tables will turn, everything will start happening topsy turvy. In other words, children will start treating their parents like slaves.

00:29:12--> 00:29:17

Towards the day of piano, children will start treating their parents like slaves.

00:29:19--> 00:29:24

They start ordering their parents around, they start putting their parents in old age homes.

00:29:25--> 00:29:33

They disregard the likes and the wishes of their parents. And do we not see this happening today in our times.

00:29:36--> 00:29:49

And if we want to save ourselves, many respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam, we have to stay away from it completely, or as Allah save us all. We become an evil sign of the day of the law.

00:29:51--> 00:29:56

The Hadith of the three means the narration goes along the lines of these words.

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

Once was utilized for a long while, who seldom gathered the society

00:30:00--> 00:30:19

One of my mind this narration is mentioned in Section 230. He climbs the member the pulpit Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam climbs the pulpit. Okay? And the first step he says army. The second step he says, I mean, the third step he says, I mean,

00:30:21--> 00:31:08

the Sahaba rebound by the Allah Allah Himeji mind they were observing this and then they asked him later on Yasuda, LA, you did something strange something that you don't do usually. Or at each tip you said amin, amin, amin, what happened? Joshua, the supervisor along while and we'll send them that explains gibreel alayhi salatu salam he came. And he made three do ours. He made three invocations and I said I mean to each of these invocations, but we need to understand who is making the dua jabril Allahu salatu salam, Amina wahi, the greatest of the angels Ark Angel, who is pure jabril, an angel, he's making the dua and who is sealing the dua off, not you and I, our beloved

00:31:08--> 00:31:18

prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the greatest prophet, he is sealing the deal our with our mean. So just imagine how powerful these doors must be the number one

00:31:20--> 00:31:31

destruction be to the one who attains the blessed month of Ramadan and lets it pass by without gaining the forgiveness of Allah behind them.

00:31:33--> 00:32:03

Ramadan is just around the corner, sort of like you said a long while he was himself I mean to the Stanford army. Do I remember to destruction B to the one in whose lifetime his parents or either one of them reach his old age and through failure to serve them he is not allowed to enter gender because he disrespected his parents he is not allowed to enter gender Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I mean

00:32:04--> 00:32:04

he was

00:32:05--> 00:32:10

the third to our destruction be to the one who

00:32:11--> 00:32:28

is making this destruction be to the one whom when your name or sort of lice and alarm island was and and when your name is mentioned, he does not make Salawat please remember Salalah whenever I mentioned the beautiful name of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu

00:32:31--> 00:32:32

alayhi wa sallam said amen to that.

00:32:34--> 00:32:37

This Hadith has been class so hey, but Mr. Medina for him.

00:32:39--> 00:32:45

So it is upon us to take extreme precaution and care when we are dealing with our parents. I would like to share with you a story,

00:32:47--> 00:32:57

a story which has a moral to it, even though its authenticity can be debated. But it's worthwhile mentioning because there are morals to be derived from the story.

00:32:59--> 00:33:00

There was once a young boy

00:33:01--> 00:33:06

who had a mother, his father had passed away. He only had a mother,

00:33:07--> 00:33:08

a mother,

00:33:09--> 00:33:11

who had only one.

00:33:13--> 00:33:15

A mother who had only one time

00:33:16--> 00:33:32

this mother was struggling to make ends meet. Because she had no husband. She was all alone. She used to go around cleaning houses. She used to go around doing odd jobs and trying to make ends meet. Now this boy, he's a young boy.

00:33:34--> 00:33:48

So he used to go to school come back and things like that. So he looked at his mother, his mother with only one eye. He always felt this embarrassment and he used to look at his mother as if she was an ugly person.

00:33:50--> 00:34:12

He always had that feeling in him. One day he was in school. And his mother came to the school to give him his food which he had forgotten at home. She came out of worry because she loved her son so much. She came to the school in anxiety and worry because he hadn't taken the food and gone. She came to the school and she was by the playground trying to signal to her son.

00:34:14--> 00:34:28

The minute the son saw the mother standing there and all of his friends also saw he came running to his mother and said get out go away. You are embarrassing me. Go away. I do want you to come to school, and he chased his mother away from the school.

00:34:29--> 00:34:58

The next day when he went to school, his friends started taunting him, started teasing him. Oh, the son of the one eyed lady. They started taunting him like this. He this made him angry. He went home that evening and he started screaming at his mother, you old hag. Why did you come to school? Why did you have to embarrass me in front of all of my friends? Why do you Why are you even born with just one eye? He started asking so many questions. His mother just kept quiet the whole time.

00:34:59--> 00:35:00

He

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

He was so angry. He just went up to his room and he fell asleep. That night, he didn't have dinner, he got up, he was thirsty. He wanted to go down and have a drink of water. He goes to the kitchen late in the night. And he sees his mother quietly weeping away crying with just one eye. She was crying.

00:35:18--> 00:36:04

He sees that, and then he hates it even more because he feels so depressed. He feels sick of his life. He feels like why was I born like this? I just want an out of this situation. And he determines that he wants to leave home. He studies hard. He gets a scholarship. And he leaves his house because he cannot bear to live with that mother of his anymore. He leaves he goes to another country. He studies very hard. He gets a he gets good qualifications. He gets a fantastic job. And now he's working. Now this happy bubble of is is growing bigger and bigger. he marries a beautiful woman of his choice. And now he's living his life far away from his mother. He gets two children,

00:36:04--> 00:36:11

also a son and a daughter. And he's living this happy life of his he has completely forgotten about his mother.

00:36:13--> 00:36:23

One fine day, an old lady walks up the porch and knocks on the door. His daughter, small girl, she opened the door and the minute she saw

00:36:25--> 00:36:53

an old lady in the doorway with just one eye she screams and she runs out of fear. He comes running down to see what is wrong and he sees his mother. He goes up to and say how dare you come here and disturb my life again. I left you because you were such an embarrassment. How dare you come and scare my daughter? Why have you come here? He shouts at his mother. His mother very quietly says, I think I have got the wrong address. And she turns and she leaves.

00:36:55--> 00:37:38

He's happy. Oh, the old lady has forgotten me. She said wrong address. So that means she's forgotten me. And nothing to worry about. And he forgets that he goes back. After a few months, he gets a letter from his village asking him to come for a reunion in his school. He decides to go he thinks he wants to meet his old friends and things that he goes for the reunion finishes off with the reunion. And out of curiosity, he just wants to go and see his home. At what situation is the old check the old hat in let me go just go pass by the heart. He's passing by the heart and he sees that the roof has fallen. It looks very bad. And out of curiosity, not because he wanted to meet his

00:37:38--> 00:38:23

mother. He just goes and knocks the door and unknown lady opens the door. And then he asked her where is the old lady of this house? The lady with the one I with the one I that lady said she passed away a few months ago. And she donated this house to an orphanage. But and then he says oh is that the case? I have her son. He says that. Then this lady says okay, because she has given me a letter to give her son whenever he comes. And this is that letter and he and she gives the letter to this young man. Now he takes the letter once again out of curiosity. He opens the letter is like okay, this old heart She has given to the orphanage. It's her house anyway, he opens the letter to

00:38:23--> 00:38:27

read the letter and then he starts reading my DSM.

00:38:28--> 00:38:37

If you are reading this, I am no longer alive. The last visit I paid you just shattered me to pieces.

00:38:39--> 00:39:02

I am sorry that I only have one. I am sorry that I scared your daughter. And I am sorry that I was an embarrassment for you throughout your life. You see, when you were little now she starts telling the story. You see when you were little? You got into an accident and you lost one eye.

00:39:03--> 00:39:12

As a mother, I couldn't stand watching you have to grow up with just only one eye. So I gave you one of my own eyes.

00:39:14--> 00:39:47

I gave you one of my own eyes. There was a transplant done. And I gave you one of my own eyes. I was so proud of my son, who was seeing a whole new world for me in my place with that I have mine. I was never upset at you for anything that you did. Or you said the couple of times that you were angry with me. I thought to myself, it's because he loves me. It's because he loves me. I missed the times when you were still young and around me. I miss you so much. I love you. You mean the world to me.

00:39:50--> 00:39:51

The boy just sat down there.

00:39:53--> 00:39:56

It's too late. His mother had passed away

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

and now everything comes rushing.

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

He could not contain himself. He just breaks into tears. Why? Because it's too late. Now he wants to go and thank his mother.

00:40:10--> 00:40:53

He thought of his mother as an embarrassment, but then I was given to him. And that meant he respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam. All of our parents do that for us. They sacrifice everything for us, you and I, we are what we are today because of the sacrifices our parents made for us. Well, I tell you, we have lost our parents, the ones who have lost their parents, if you were to ask them. If you had a chance to go and dig up the grave of your mother and father and bring them back alive, they would say well, Lonnie, I would do that I would go and hug and kiss my mom and my dad, and I would ask them their forgiveness.

00:40:56--> 00:41:37

And how lucky should we consider us who have our parents with us? But sadly, for small petty issues, we have cut ties with them. I tell you my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, if your parents are abroad or you're working elsewhere, do not hesitate don't think Okay, the next vacation when I go I'll patch up things no, make the call right now. They might leave before you or you might leave none of us can guarantee when molecule mouth is going to come visit us touch up things apologize and patch up things make things up my dear respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam, because this is how important our parents are to us.

00:41:38--> 00:42:31

How do you see Mr. Can Hakeem? I'll be back tomorrow do an avocado there'll be a long line who called Samir to pseudo long he said a long while he was sending my pool kulu newbie you asked him along Masha, I mean, how can you take any sin? Allah subhanahu wa taala will delay the repercussions or the punishments of that sin until the day of tm and innovation goes along the lines of these words Illa Kakuka, while eating eggs except for disrespect, or unkind treatment to one's parents except for them for in Allahu Allah, you are a Jew who is so heavy he inherited a lot. A lot of the Almighty will bring the repercussions of that sin. The disrespect that an individual shows to his

00:42:31--> 00:42:42

parents the unkind treatment that he shows to his parents, the repercussions the the punishment of their sin will have to be faced in this world Carbonell mama before death

00:42:43--> 00:42:47

law, but this is how serious it is mature, respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:42:49--> 00:43:01

Another Hadith in Bukhari, a man goes to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asking him permission to take part in jihad. He asked him permission to take part in jihad. But what a great hammer Jihad

00:43:03--> 00:43:08

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asks the man, a high goon Juanita,

00:43:09--> 00:43:11

are your two parents alive?

00:43:13--> 00:43:21

And the man replies in the affirmative, he says, Yes, they are alive, then no sort of law. He said a long while he was an instructor that man for females.

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

Then go and strive, exert yourself in the service of your parents a lot, even over jihad, even.

00:43:34--> 00:43:40

And then comes about dimension of this amazing individual. And I'll wrap up after I mentioned his story.

00:43:42--> 00:43:47

This man was an amazing man. May Allah be pleased with him.

00:43:49--> 00:44:29

He lived to the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, but he was not as a hobby. He lived at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but he was so hard. His name was always ultrarunning. Always our current economy. He lived in the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But he was not a Sahaba because he never met Rasulullah sallallahu while he was in them, but Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have spoken highly of him and praised him. He grew up in Yemen. He was afflicted with leprosy. He grew up in Yemen, he was afflicted with leprosy, and at the same time, and he was afflicted with leprosy. His father died when he was very

00:44:29--> 00:44:36

young, and he had to look after his mother all by himself. He prayed to Allah subhana wa tada

00:44:37--> 00:44:59

that Allah should cure him of his leprosy, except for the size of a Delhomme on his shoulder. He asked a lot of behind him who the other believe the size of a did him on his shoulder. Why, what was the reason? Because he wanted to look at that. And remember the favor of a loss behind him was Allah upon him that each time he looks at that their home size piece

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

of leprosy. He would remember the favor of Allah behind him without a lot cured him completely. Each time he looked at it, he would turn to a loss of a look at what an amazing doula.

00:45:12--> 00:45:14

His mother went blind.

00:45:15--> 00:45:27

And he remained in her service completely after that, because she went blind, it was finding it very difficult to get about with her daily shows. He was in her service completely. One night.

00:45:29--> 00:46:06

There wasn't oil in the house to light up the lamps, and everything was picked up, and always alcohol and he was finding it difficult to get around his house because everything was pitched duck, like the statement of amount of love, and you close your eyes, you can't see anything. Everything was pitched up. She was trying to find his way around the house. He could not find it. But then amazingly, he sees his mother walking around everywhere, beautiful. Why? Because she had got accustomed to the layout of the house. And because she was always blind, he didn't really matter if there was a lamp lit up or not, because she had gotten accustomed to the layout of the house. She

00:46:06--> 00:46:43

was getting along. And he was amazed at that. He was amazed he was thinking even without eyesight. There is someone who guides it because he hasn't embraced Islam as yet. The next morning, coincidentally The next morning, ambassadors of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Come to him, a delegation sent by Ross, who lives in Long Island where Salim comes to Yemen, and they started calling people to Islam. And he goes and sees this delegation at that point. And at that moment, the delegation recited this ayah in Surah, two new one.

00:46:57--> 00:46:58

The minute he heard the iron,

00:47:00--> 00:47:37

the iron, which is translated, and he to whom a lost behind and what Allah has not granted light for him, there is no light at all. The minute he heard this ayah he realized that it was a lot of the Almighty Who had shown his mother given life to his mother's eyesight that she could get around the house, but he could not. He immediately he embraces Islam a lot. But because he was in the service of his mother, he did not go to meet Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was in the service of his mother. This Hadith is in Muslim

00:47:39--> 00:47:47

Omar but in October of the Obama and who he is narrating the ad, either attack, or he is mentioned in the ad either

00:47:49--> 00:47:50

in Yemen, Salah

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

Mohammed

00:47:53--> 00:47:55

Mohammed Romero de la one

00:47:57--> 00:48:17

meaning during his khilafah whenever a delegation used to come from Yemen, over the long line who used to go and meet the delegation and us is always have an army amongst your waste of an army. colony is always our economy from amongst y'all is always a colony amongst your every single delegation over the long line.

00:48:20--> 00:48:33

Adana wait until one fine day he met always. And then he asked him until a tsunami Amaro de la mano is asking him Are you always have an army? To which waste of an army says Yes, I am.

00:48:34--> 00:49:15

Color then he asked him me Morag. Are you from Milan? He says, Yes, I'm from Morocco. And are you from current, then? Yes, I'm from current Mirage and Corona the night in the names of two tribes. He's from the sub tribe of Morocco, which is of the main tribe current, and that's why he's known as always are currently. Yeah. And then he asked Him and you had leprosy. You are afflicted with leprosy, which he says yes. And then all you have got remaining is the size of a Delhomme on your shoulder. To which he says yes. And then remember the long line who asks him and you have a margin. You have a mother? To which he says yes, I do have a mother. And then oh my god, Allahu anhu says,

00:49:15--> 00:49:37

Call a semiotic. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to cool. And then he says, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said, Allahu Akbar. No wonder. He says, our beloved prophet Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said, Yes to LA come away tsunami,

00:49:38--> 00:49:59

de la Leeman Mirage sumome in current ways, even Ahmed from the delegations of the people of Yemen, who is from Morocco, who is from current will come Karna B he borrows he was afflicted with leprosy for bara minghui illa mo D, I did him. Now of course this knowledge was taught was utilized.

00:50:00--> 00:50:20

The Long Island was led by a loss of behind the hula Donna that is how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is narrating this to us for about I mean we llamo the other hand and he was cured from the leprosy except for the place of one dyrham laahu walidah he had, he has a mother, who are we have a loan officer at a VA healer.

00:50:22--> 00:51:14

And he treats her with excellence. If he were to swear upon Allah Subhana Allah, Allah the Almighty will accept his dua In other words, Allah the Almighty will accept his do his job Java, Darren, if he were to make a law, the Almighty will accept his dua for Mr. Tata. If you are able to ask him to seek forgiveness for you then do so. And this is why you're a man of the law man who's struggling so much to meet way tsunami. And then when he met him, he said, please ask forgiveness for me Make dua for me, and then waste of an army made to alpha Amato de la Juan, and then a lot of the long line when asked him either to read, where are you going? Or where are you headed? To which he said Kufa,

00:51:14--> 00:51:47

I'm headed to Kufa. Then tomorrow, the last one who asked him, Do you want me to write to the governor of Kufa, you know, to give you good treatment when you go their way tsunami replies, a coup de gras Ignacio LA, I wish to be from the normal people. I don't need this. In other words, I don't need VIP treatment. You know, I don't need first class business class. Let me just be from the normal people along after that. Look at the piety and the reason being,

00:51:48--> 00:52:30

how did he become a person whose invocations are answered by Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Subhana Allah, he did not even go and meet Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and why did he not go and meet Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because he was in the service of his mother. And that resulted in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praising him and making high mention of him. And for him to become an individual whose invocations are answered by Allah Subhana. Allah, this is how important it is for us to treat our parents with excellence. And this is why this afternoon also, I put up a status on Facebook, because after reading this one last incident, and Buddha mentioned to

00:52:30--> 00:52:31

you all,

00:52:33--> 00:53:00

I wrote that it is upon us to treat our parents with excellence upon excellence for even if we were to do that, and combine all of the efforts that we have put in treating our parents, well, all of that combined together will not equal even one contraction of pain that our mothers went through. When we were in their rooms. A man goes to even Amaro the last one,

00:53:01--> 00:53:52

or tomorrow, Maria Juan, if I'm not mistaken, and he says, I have a mother. It's mentioned in the books of fairies. I have a mother who is very old and she cannot walk. So I carry her, okay, I carry her and I take her out to the fields or the plains for her to relieve herself. Okay, I wait till she relieves herself. And then afterwards, I turn my face away out of respect for my mother, and I clean her after she has relieved herself and I carry her back home every single day. He asked him about the alarm on have I fulfilled my heart towards my mother. Have I fulfilled my right towards my mother, Amara, the Allahu anhu replies, not even for one contraction your mother went through in her

00:53:52--> 00:54:13

pregnancy, not even for one contraction. And then he goes on to say, but what you're doing is good. persist in it. And why I said this was because currently you're doing all of this for your mother, you're carrying her every single day, waiting for her to expand,

00:54:14--> 00:54:32

waiting for her to pass away and relieve you of this burden. But on the other hand, your mother did the very same thing. She carried you She cleaned you she did all of that, hoping and wishing that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah bless you with a long, long life.

00:54:33--> 00:54:34

He saw the difference.

00:54:36--> 00:54:41

This is how much our parents have done for us many respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:54:42--> 00:54:59

So let us become from those who treat our parents with excellence upon excellence. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive all of our sins and may allow the almighty forgive the sins of our parents. And may Allah the Almighty accept all of our good deeds.

00:55:00--> 00:55:40

May He make these gatherings that we are to meet in the following days in sha Allah, Allah source of benefit for us in this world, as well as the Hereafter, and many the almighty unite all of us just as how he united us here tonight in the gardens of Jenna with our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I mean your bill I mean, whatever correct set was from Allah subhanho wa Taala and if there was anything wrong in what I said, it is from me and from shavon and I seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala for that, so behind Allah He will be handy so behind him for love Moby Dick, a shadow under law, he learned to stop forgot to break so long while

00:55:41--> 00:55:45

he became a seller. So salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
