to accept us from amongst his righteous in this world and in the earth hoorah. Allah whom I mean, may Allah subhanho wa Taala always and forever, especially on this blessed day. ovule mucho Mara except our Dora's Allah whom I mean, your luck, Bob.
Once upon a time, there was a companion by the name of July Habib oral the Allah Han, I couldn't tell you who his parents were because we don't know, July be been what should they be was known during his time in both Mecca and Medina. And if you've heard this story before, I want you to understand we're not going to just go through the story. But we're going to make several pauses in between the learn and reflect on some of the things that we learned from the story of God but all the align that I think is important for all of us. Regardless of your age or background, you need to be aware of why such a man existed during the time of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So he asked Allah azza wa jal for strength Allahumma Amin Juday, beep, didn't even have a home, slept under a tree.
And the word Julie beep itself means the one the detest one, the one that is difficult, the one that is deformed to look at, because why some of the elements said that he had some skin issues and he was very sick, he was small, he was petite.
And in addition to all of that, he was ostracized and excluded from society. Nobody wanted to be his friend. Nobody wanted to talk to him. And as a matter of fact, it got to a point where Julie Bebo, the Lavon, used to spend most of his time with the women because they were less easy on him than the men until the age of hijab came down, then he separated. But the point is, here's our first lesson.
Everyone knows of someone or a group that is ostracized or is an outcast to culture in the society. Unfortunately, that culture even creeps into our masajid let me give you an example. We may not have someone like Julie Bieber or the hola one. But we might have many Julie bebes around.
You know that one person that you might see whether it be in a masjid or a community center or anywhere that no one's talking to?
The awkward one. Sounds funny, speaks funny looks funny.
Nobody talks to him or her, that person, whoever that person may be.
And what I want to do is I want to share with you from this story, how Islam taught us the etiquettes and the relationship we are supposed to in obliged to have with people that seem as though they're an outcast, because really and truly, they're not. Culture and Society and other influences may have caused us to think that
We are about such people. But you will realize that by the end of today's reminder in sha Allah Jota Allah those are the exact people you want closest to you, because those are the people that might give you amongst many other things in life the best chance to enter Allah is Jana, may Allah count us from amongst them Allahumma me.
So July be had a really tough time and then Prophet alayhi salatu salam knew this. And one of the things that he really struggled is to get married. So one day he came to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and said Ya rasool Allah, will I be alone? Why is this my destiny i will remain alone in this world and in the Hereafter. And the prophet Isaiah sought to Salam gave him reassurance and said, you will have companionship in this world waffleh era and in the earth era Bismillah.
Here's the second point, the lesson.
Often when you meet people who feel like they're an outcast.
It's important that one of the first things you say to them, or prior to saying anything, one of the first things you do is acknowledge their presence
by doing the things our Prophet alayhi salatu salam told us to do you know what the first thing is, when the ultimate icebreaker we all know, a Salam or Aleikum?
If they're not Muslim, how you doing? I haven't seen you around what's your name? And you start to make that person feel like they exist? Because most of the time they don't feel that. So you take it upon yourself. Now, what's the incentive? Why should you do that? Is there a problem brother most I have, I just ignore them or I don't talk to them or they're not my friend. What's the big deal? Problem is
that if you want to come as close to the etiquettes of our messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then this is part of that picture. You can take some and leave some. If you're Muslim, you're Muslim 100% as best as you can. So it's a responsibility and it's a part of our faith. It's a reflection of E men, when you make your fellow brother or sister or friend in humanity,
feel good about themselves.
So did I be able to the Allah home? After hearing this, he became so excited, there's hope. So what did the Prophet alayhi salatu salam do? He started going from house to house asking people that your daughter, I would like to offer someone to her in marriage? So when they he came, and by the way, even though he's the messenger, salallahu, alayhi wasallam. It was one refusal after another when they heard Oh, it's not up out of Seattle? It's July believe. No, thank you. This is the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is being refused by people. This is based on his recommendation, you're not going to get a better recommendation than him sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam, but for whatever reason.
No men. No, here's the next lesson.
Sometimes Allah subhanho wa Taala
puts an opportunity for us to do the right thing.
And at first, it's not attractive. It's not easy. There's challenges I gotta go out for hours out there. I've got to battle through traffic to get where I need to be. I got to volunteer. I gotta get take time off my schedule. And and and there's so many things that are challenges, not realizing, and may Allah subhanaw taala give us knowledge and strength. It's, it's part of our weakness as human beings. We can't see beyond what's in front of us that that could be the moment. That could be the one opportunity Allah put in front of you that doesn't come very often.
That had you reacted with faith and sincerity and all the wonderful things that are that are required. That could have been your moment, where Allah subhanho wa Taala by His mercy stamped a spot for you in Jannah. That could have been the moment that you've been struggling all your life and how would you respond to it with a sincere heart and at least considered doing the right thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala will shower His mercy on you? And we have many a hadith to support, that frame of mind that way of thinking.
So one day the Prophet alayhi salatu salam comes to a very special place, a house that was well known.
And these I want you to think of it it's like the
dignitaries of the city. Okay, now we're shifting to Medina. So this is like the elite. This is a family that everyone knew. So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam knocks on the door.
The father comes on he says Allahu Akbar, it's you ya rasool Allah, what brings you to my door on a prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam tells him in the UI do an utter Zawada Ibn attack I want to offer marriage to your daughter. So you can understand now when the father hears that, he celebrating
those who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he saying this, by the way, wants to marry our daughter, it cannot become it cannot be better than this. The mother also overhears the conversation, she comes and she rejoices and they celebrate. And profit is auto senses. Okay, just slow down. It's not for me.
Actually, I want to offer to her, Julie beep.
Everything changed. It changed so much. That the mother had uttered a phrase that I don't want to say in Arabic, and I don't want you to remember, but I want you to just listen to it. Because it's a phrase that's haram, you can't say this. And she said, by the life span of Allah, I will not marry July be meaning if Allah had a limit to his existence, that entire existence, that age limit, if you want to call it that of Allah subhanho wa taala. I will not even consider July beep. And beyond that.
It's a terrible thing to say.
But this was how Jul he was treated. This is how he felt.
here's the beauty now where things start to take a turn.
When all of this is happening in front of the Prophet, alayhi salatu, salam, guess who's listening, the daughter,
she can overhear a conversation. So she comes closer to the door.
And for all of us here who have children, this is really important.
Sometimes Allah puts a spark in your home, and it's not to you. And it's not me, it's our children.
You know, those same kids, that can become really annoying, that get in trouble. The moment they don't finish or do or not be the way we like, you know how it works.
That one person who may have listened to a talk or a lecture or went to a class and learn something new about Islam that mom and dad are not familiar with. Very often the reaction they get is, you know, Dad, this is what I want to do now, Mom, this is how I want to change. I want to dress different, I want to act different. I want to do this, I want to do that. You're too young for that. Don't don't think along those lines. What was your teacher, they're too strict. You're out of that class, that kind of response, not realizing, that's the light that Allah put in your house, that child, this daughter came and she overheard all that happen. And she said
to her father, you're going to refuse something
that the prophets of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recommended,
he silenced he became silent. And she says Wallahi and she looks at the Prophet alayhi salatu salam she says while light here,
I will marry him and he will not be disappointed. What she means is I'm not going to treat him like a charity case. Key nobody wants him find out Azula you said salt. No. I will genuinely and wholeheartedly accept him as my husband.
watch for them. That child, the child that indirectly keeps a man together.
You know, you might say something accidentally, you're driving you somebody cuts you off. You order a word that happens. And child says Daddy mommy so you stop for Allah.
It's just just say it, that child. Don't underestimate that child. That just gave you a ticket. That perhaps one step closer to Allah's mercy and Paradise. May Allah subhanho wa Taala preserve Eman with our sons and daughters alone.
So they get married.
They get married.
And as soon as the marriage happens literally days
After the call or the announcement for battle is made
July be brutal the hola Juan is called now into battle.
And here's the next lesson he doesn't say y'all Rasool I just got married. I can't I can't I didn't want to have a few days yet awesome look Can I just can I pass on this? Nope. This is the thing that separates companions from us.
This is the separator companions understood how to sacrifice for Allah.
No winner Emoto the Allahu Anhu died or he was moments before his death. He told his son Dr. Abdullah take my face and put it into the dirt. Turn my face after I die and put it into the dirt.
So the son looks at it does that I can't do that to you.
How can I do that to you?
Amara literally moments before he dies, he says Listen to me.
If this face is destined for the hellfire, then it doesn't deserve your lap.
And if this face is destined for Allah's Jenner, then the pillars of gender will keep me comfortable. Listen to me what I'm telling you put my face into the ground. So at least I can meet Allah
as a servant that submitted Himself to His Mercy
That's her Omar Radi Allahu Allah. The man who should have the biggest and most honorable funeral is asking for that, though those are companions. So when Juday B gets the call, he doesn't hesitate. Yato Sula, BayCare rasool Allah, I'm coming, I'm going to follow.
Now time went on when the battle was over, something happens. And that is what we will conclude within the second part of the hotbar when we pause I want you to think about if you are someone you know, is a little Jul beep in your life. And what are the things that you can now do and say and start to change that at least that person feels like hamdulillah I'm recognized and hamdulillah people actually want to know my name. They want to talk to me. They want me to feel welcome, especially us as people of E men, even if they're annoying and all of those things. Your Eman tells you ignore that. That's a fellow brother or sister in faith. Go and build a relationship may Allah
subhanho wa Taala keep our hearts together. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala continue to uplift us as an ummah. Allahumma Amin Akula meta SmartOne was stuff that Allahu Allah convert he certainly didn't listen to me and I'm incredibly them for stuff who know who will have a little rocky
Smilla Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam o Allah rasool Allah Allah He often was Salah woman while Amma berita one day after salah
the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam turns around and he looks at everyone and he asks them he notices something. It says a definitely doing it ahead.
Is any one of you missing anyone missing someone so they look around? So knowing out Rasul Allah, everybody's here says no.
Where's my July beep?
So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam gets up
and walks out into the battlefield. This is the leader of the ummah.
He's concerned about one person no one else is concerned about
the leader, the greatest creation to touch the ground, got up and walked out risking his life because it's a battle you don't know who's hiding where.
So he goes out and he's looking where is July beam
and he finds him.
He finds his body
and his body is surrounded by seven of the enemies.
He was ambushed.
And he fought through right to the end.
Those are companions.
The prophet Ali Asad was salam weeked
and he picked up dulay Beep with his blessing hands, frail and small.
And he performed the hustle with his blessings hands and shrouded him with his blessed hands and
Pray Janessa over him sallallahu alayhi wa salam
those are the moments
that you have to think about when doing the right thing is difficult.
Look at the honor Allah gave Jul people the Allah horn when the rest of the world ignored him and hated him.
Look how Allah subhanho wa Taala honored him who to have the Prophet alayhi salatu salam do that for you.
So I leave you with this. And the reason why I chose today's reminder.
We don't know what tomorrow looks like you just heard someone in the community passed away. Those announcements are coming more and more often. Everywhere you go. You don't know what your tomorrow looks like. So when Allah puts an opportunity in front of your door, it is upon you and I as people of the men that we humble ourselves, that we put aside whatever barriers come in and say to you, oh, you can do much better than that. Put aside all of that. Oh Allah, I will love them. I will appreciate them. I will respect them for you era. May Allah subhanho wa Taala continue to increase us may Allah preserve the message of la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa
