Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah were buried. boy do I have an amazing story to share with you guys today. Now I'm going to jump right into this in sha Allah, Allah, it's a hadith narrated in the sunon, a total medium, and the scholars had graded this hadith as hacernos saw here. So long story short, it was an acceptable authentic hadith of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now here's the thing. It's a long Hadith. So I'm going to summarize some of the main points in this heading. But, man, just make sure that you're relaxed and you sit back and listen to this beautiful narration of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:00:45--> 00:00:47

sallam. One day.

00:00:48--> 00:01:36

The companions were waiting for Salah to ledger, and they were waiting for the Prophet Ali Sato Sam to come and lead them in prayer. And they were waiting and waiting and waiting, thinking in the back of their minds that Wait a minute, he's not going to show up today. And just before selectel ledger, the time period was about to exit and end, the prophet alayhi salatu salam was seen rushing towards the prayer, he immediately told everyone to you know, give the a comma, and he led them in, in fudger. And when he was done, he turned around and he said come unto him, he's like, stay where you are. And he looked at the gym. And then he started to explain to him to them what was happening. He

00:01:36--> 00:02:26

said earlier on in the night, I woke up for the pm will lay and he made his will do. He prayed his little guides. And then immediately after he was done, he went back and he took a short nap. So he said when he took this short nap, he had a dream that he met Allah subhanho wa Taala Island. And he said that in the dream, I met my Lord, my Arab, and he had placed his hand on me and I felt the coolness of his hands subhanho wa Taala. So as you all know that Allah subhanaw taala has hands how these hands look, Allahu RLM. And it's not even important to us in the sense that that's a conversation that Allah didn't tell us about. So we don't need to talk about it. Anyhow. So the felt

00:02:26--> 00:03:17

the coolness of the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala on his chest. And then a lot asked him, Do you know which group in this world is closest to me, stands out to me, that I prefer that I love that's different that's unique from all the other groups or categories of believers. And the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam says, Allah, I don't know, oh, my Lord tells me. Now remember, the Hadith also says that this went on three times. So Allah asked him three times, and he says, Only Allah knows, tell me only, you know, tell me only, you know, tell me, then he says this parable with our island. He says that the people that love that stand out to me are the ones that number one, they wake up

00:03:17--> 00:03:55

during the nights they pray. Number two, they feed the miskeen what the borrower will borrow them. So they feed those who are hungry, who are starving, so they help people out. And it's not just the miskeen alone, could be anybody, anybody who's struggling. Or even if you just feed somebody for the sake of Allah, you know, you go out for dinner with some friends, you say, Hey, I'm going to take the check. And you take it because not that you want to show that you can pay for stuff, but you do it because you just want to you just want to do something nice for your friends. So all of this falls under Islam, apart from so you're feeding others and you're just giving them food. And then

00:03:55--> 00:04:42

the Prophet Ali sought to sell them he's continued, it continues and he tells him one more thing. And those who have a soft tongue in their speech. So they're not aggressive the way they talk. They're not loud, they don't argue and even if somebody wants to, you know, start an argument or a confrontation, these are the things that this particular group tries to stay away from. So then the Prophet alayhi salatu salam makes a door. So when he's teaching all the companions this and he's telling them what happened to him in his dream. Then he says to them a door and this is how we're doing today. He says to them, Allahumma inni iluka theory learn how you rot. He says, Oh Allah, we

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

ask you or I ask you for theragun hireright good actions. Now here's the thing, guys, so pay attention just so you understand exactly what this Hadeeth is referring to, or what the doora is referring to. There are two words or two main words

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

To use in the core and to describe actions, you have fear alone, and you have Ramadan. Ramadan is the more common one you're accustomed to when you hear verses in the lesbian M.

00:05:13--> 00:05:57

in the lesbian, M No warm you slowly had those who have amen and they also follow that a man with righteous deeds. So that's one type of word that's used to describe good actions or righteous deeds. The second type is fair loan. Why if I don't model one as a law describes the angels that they do whatever Allah subhanho wa Taala commands them to do. So yes, alone is plural for Fairlawn. So what's the difference between the two, I'm alone is very specific. It requires an intention. This is why almost every time Allah talks about righteous deeds in the Quran, in men comes before that or after it. So it's something very specific, and you have to have a certain intention and it has to be

00:05:57--> 00:06:46

done a certain way. So that's I'm alone. Fairlawn is far more generic, it could just be any action good or bad. Anything, there doesn't need to be an intention. You just do the action and you do it and what the consequences is, what the outcome is, is besides the point, it's just an a random spontaneous action that's generic and it has no intention behind it whatsoever. So what does Allah subhanho wa Taala? Teach the Prophet Allah so to slam this door? What is he asking for? The profit, it sort of service saying, I am asking you or Allah, to bless me with fear a little higher, God, bless me with just random actions that are still good. Because you know, you know, the wisdom behind

00:06:46--> 00:07:36

this. If you're random, generic actions and speech and just your overall your overall behavior on conduct and conduct in life is just good. And it's acceptable. And it's, it's, it's right. It's just, it's fair. So this goes back to now, all those conversations that you hear about of people who feel that well, I can call you certain names, I can say whatever I want to you, but it's not bad to me, you're taking it the wrong way. So the way to get out of that scenario is you ask Allah for fairly hierarchy. So what's the most acceptable and best thing to do in that situation? So even if you feel that it's good, but the other person doesn't, they're offended by it. Theron. hireright, is

00:07:36--> 00:07:52

all legit. Can you rectify this? So we're actually saying the thing that makes me feel good, but also doesn't offend the person I'm talking to. Then the Prophet alayhi salatu salam continues, along in the Luca Farah a little higher rot or

00:07:53--> 00:08:37

torkel, Mancha rot, boo Massa keen. So two more things. Number two, what topical Mancha rot, and so that I leave off the things that are awful, that are evil that are forbidden. So you want to do all the good things, but when you're tempted or you end up falling into a predicament where you might say or do the wrong thing. You want to stay away from that. So what total moon carrot, I want to just leave off the things that are Moncada things that are forbidden, forbidden, the things that are evil, the things that you dislike, again, it's very generic because why the Prophet Allah Azza wa sallam, he wants to do everything in his life. He wants everything about him, even if he's not

00:08:37--> 00:08:50

praying and he's not involved in an actual ritual or worship. He wants to do everything in his life, to be on the path that Allah is pleased with. I'll give you guys an example. So this really makes sense in sha Allah.

00:08:52--> 00:09:20

You know how we have two kinds of Muslims. You have the Muslims that are really focused and concentrated on worship and rituals. They can recite beautifully, they pray perfectly on time they go for Hajj, they fast when it comes to the rituals, you know, they wear their hijab, they have their beard, they do everything Mashallah Tabata cologne. When it comes to rituals, there's just one problem though.

00:09:21--> 00:09:22

You can trust them.

00:09:23--> 00:09:59

You can even have a fair conversation with them. If you go out to dinner with them, it turns into a problem. It's uncomfortable, it becomes awkward. If a non Muslim wants to talk to them, it's the most awkward thing on the planet. And when it comes to trust, when it comes to keeping promises, when it comes to treating, you know, his or her spouse fairly equally fulfilling rights with each other, when it comes to just being an overall good person, they are far from it. So they practice to be the greatest Muslim in terms of performing rituals.

00:10:00--> 00:10:18

But when it comes to just being an overall good person, it's a big problem, then that leads to the second type of Muslim, where it's the complete opposite. don't pray, don't fast and no rituals can't read core and forget about looking like a Muslim acting like Forget it, all of that at the bottom of the list.

00:10:20--> 00:10:42

But when it comes to trusting them, when it comes to intelligence, when it comes to standing up for rights for justices and fairness, and equality, etc, etc, etc. When it comes to being lifted, good person, they are the best, but you will never see them in a Masjid. Unless there's like a dinner or social event, you'll just never see them.

00:10:43--> 00:11:30

So this Dora, which you're asking a lot for is a balance between the two because you need both sides to be a complete Muslim. You need both is a big problem. I'm sure every one of you wherever you are in the world, I'm sure in Charlotte, wherever you are in the world, you know exactly what I'm talking about. You meet Muslims like this all the time. They're either from one extreme category, or the other. This duel you're asking Allah give you both balance you both so fairly high, not what total can one cut out? Is the third one. What have we missed that came and love for those in need? My goodness, you know, it's like you step out from now about you, you, you, you. And now it's about

00:11:30--> 00:12:16

those in need, Oh Allah, I want you to bless me so that I love those who are in need. You know what happens when you love people who are in need. That is one of Islam's way of getting rid of poverty, getting rid of suffering in this world, by you start off by actually loving and caring for these people. You know, just I think A day or two ago, somebody posted an article I didn't verified but you know, a lot of people in the comments and so on, were verifying this stuff, but I didn't look into it any further. But the image alone was enough for me to just be like Subhana lament, it was so difficult to watch, I just wish I could be there and scoop up all of them and take them home.

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

This picture was

00:12:19--> 00:13:02

you know, there was a particular country in the world that had illegal immigrants that were escaping their countries from you know, war, civil war and, and whatever the case is, right? They're just trying to look for a place to live on this planet. And for whatever reason, the customs and immigration of that country took a boatload of 1000 plus have these so called illegal immigrants, these human beings, and just left them in the middle of the ocean, just literally dumped them. And there was an image a picture of all of them scattered in their life jackets, just scattered in the ocean. And they were just kind of like dump like garbage. You know, like, you just, you know, you

00:13:02--> 00:13:09

finish a bottle of water, you just dump it in the ocean or something. And you're just throwing out there. Yeah, you guys go swim and figure out somewhere else to live.

00:13:11--> 00:13:54

And I just thought to myself, that image alone, even if you can't do anything, just the image alone burns you, and it hurts you. And it pierces a spot in your heart. And we all have and see images like this. So if you feel something, if it stirs something in you, you have love for those in need. And you notice that this example it has nothing to do with money only, like it's not just restricted to money. You know, often when we think about helping the mosquito, we always think about paying or giving something. Yeah, that's a big part of it. But just even reflecting and thinking, providing some kind of service or support. You know, it just love in the heart that when you do somebody in

00:13:54--> 00:14:16

need, but you don't have anything to give in your heart, you're like metal club, make it easy for that person, or you say subpanel law, or you're saying male law. So it's all you know, correct your situation bring you out of the struggle. When you do those things you have love for Miss for the mess that came. Here's the last thing I'll mention to you about this point. Why is it important to love those in need?

00:14:17--> 00:14:59

A very quick and easy answer to this. You could be one of them. So be careful. Don't take your wealth for granted. Don't take your stability for granted. Don't take your security for granted. You can that could be you. So don't look down at the miskeen don't pity the miskeen Don't think like Oh, why don't you get a job? What's wrong with you? Don't talk to them this way. Because just because you work doesn't mean your company won't shut down tomorrow doesn't mean that this whole COVID locked down and the economy the global economy isn't going to affect you. So you better ensure and understand that that could also be

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

You so take care and at least show compassion and love to the Messiah came. Then this Hadeeth concludes with another sentence right, which is really interesting. But the prophet Alayhi salat wa salam then asks Allah is that if there is fitna around me caused me to leave this world and the fitness as well, if their fitness near me, caused me to leave this world and leave the fitness behind now I did a whole video on fitness. So you can take a look at that in the previous series. On spiritual growth, there is a subject called fitness. And you can listen to that talk about everything, what it means, what it's why it's important to us, etc, etc. So long story short trials

00:15:46--> 00:16:28

difficulties, the things that test your Amen. In this world. Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam asks Allah at the end, I you know, to leave this behind, leave these things far from me fitna far for me, and allow me that when my time comes to leave this world that the fitness is left behind that it doesn't come along with me. What does that mean? It means that you don't want the consequences of that fitness, if it affected you in any way to carry on on judgment day in front of a law. Yes, Oh Allah, I knew that I shouldn't have been looking at that. But it was just all over me. And I just I looked at it once in a while. You don't want that. You want that if that stuff that you're not

00:16:28--> 00:17:11

supposed to be looking at is still present on this world. When it's time for you to leave, you want to leave it behind. So you want your eyes to be pure. When you make the last panel with Ireland, you can say to him, Oh Allah, I did my best to close my eyes. I did my best to turn the other way a bit. I did my best to click x and get off of that website, I did everything I could you want to come to a load that in that in that particular state. So that's your processor is saying I want to leave that fitna behind as well. Finally, and then we're done. This Hadeeth concludes with a sentence that I don't think any poetry on the planet can equal the beauty in this one sentence, which also teaches

00:17:11--> 00:17:37

us just how the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam is really and truly a prophet of Allah. And he's been taught this By Allah, listen to it. A lot of you know this already. The Dora concludes, as a Luca hub book, I asked you for your love. What Whoa, boom in your head book. And I also ask for the love of those that you love.

00:17:39--> 00:17:44

And listen to, you know, I asked you for your love and the love of those that you love.

00:17:45--> 00:18:31

While Byron Allen, you can't rebel Isla herbig and love for actions that bring me closer to your love. And goodness, I want to repeat it, but I feel like I'm gonna say it differently because every time I try to say it, it just comes out differently. But it's everything is just about love, love, love, and everything and every type of love that leads me to your love of Allah subhanho wa Taala I'm going to post this entire narration. When I'm done this video, I'll post it up for you guys so you can see and you can take your time, read all the details in the narration. It's a fairly long Hadith. I'll post the Arabic as well. You know what, I'll do it actually I'll post even a link

00:18:31--> 00:19:12

because I found it online as well. So I'll post the link just click on the link and you can read the narration in Arabic and in English as well as the door is there both Arabic and English as well. But so panela listen to that last sentence, because the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala Alhamdulillah I'm just so grateful to say that we did a 10 part series based on a book written by Immanuel pm Rahim Allah of 10 reasons that lead you to the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala it's on the YouTube channel. It's actually even on this page if you scroll down, but that's going to be too much work. So don't go back. Because you're going to have to go back like 4050 videos before you find it. Just

00:19:12--> 00:19:53

go on to the YouTube channel, you'll see it there. A series 1010 videos and it's all based on it don't pay him or him Allah and His works and everything that you need to know about how to gain the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala but just listen to that sentence. My goodness. It's unreal. It's unreal. Nobody could even write a sentence like that. No human being could could put that together. But everything is just so perfect. It's so beautiful. It's so personal. Everything that you want from a lion. That's how that door ends and that's what the prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam teaches his companions one day after so little fetcher. So with that being said, Here are the last few

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

points to reflect upon and go back to the whole Hadeeth number one, the prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam had a habit of

00:20:00--> 00:20:32

spontaneously reminding companions about random things. So things that would either happen to him or he would see or he would hear, or he would be thinking about, he will just say, Okay, stop everybody. And then he'll talk to them and start reminding them things. The lesson for you and i is the exact same scenario. If you see like a beautiful tree, or beautiful plant, or flower, or just greenery in general, and you think about a Hadeeth, or an A, or you even think about Jenna, and you're like, Jenna is called Jenna, because it's green.

00:20:33--> 00:21:10

Take a moment, not just for yourself, but even for the people around you and just talk about it. Be like, Man, it's almost as if we're getting like a sample of genda with this beautiful scenery of all these trees, these rivers, you know, Jen, Neptune tragedy mentality and how you know, you start thinking about these rivers that are flowing beneath your feet. And here we are standing on top of this mountain, we're looking at all of this, the streams going by luscious trees. This is almost like a sample of genda here, and you just start talking about it. You know, you hear somebody arguing, you remember a verse that when you see these two people arguing, one of them just tries to

00:21:10--> 00:21:42

get away. And all of a sudden, the AI pops into your mind why Georgia home Hi, john jameelah leave the scenario in a beautiful way, in a dignified way, in a civilized way. And if you can't do that, if somebody literally in your face and they're shouting, with a hot tub of whom will jehlen kalu Salah when the ignorant comes and start shouting and raising their voice in front of your face. You try to respond in a peaceful way you just like listen, just stop calm down. I can't talk to you like this. You know, you see a beautiful boat or a ship just sailing across the ocean.

00:21:44--> 00:22:34

And then you remember that a lot spoke about the ship sailing and floating on top of the water was sobre la como fully Lita, Judy, I feel bad, and salty brought him and you think to yourself, that structure, that boat or that ship is bigger than my house. But yet it floats on top of the most delicate surface on the planet. Water, and it doesn't just go flat to the bottom. You know, I'm sure you know, physics and structure and design has a lot to do with that. But at the end of the day, no matter how you calculate how you measure how you design, it still has to work. And at the end of the day, it works because Allah wills it to work. You see a plane in the sky, and it doesn't just fall

00:22:34--> 00:23:17

down to the ground. Now you see Kahuna Illa. Right man, nothing holds it up in the air except All right, man. That's how a lot talks about with birds. So that's our equivalent. And so panela you know, these are the things and this is how you start training your mind to think Porter and it's not easy to do. It's a lifelong journey. But I hope that this Dora that we've seen and heard today can help us with that journey. Be in Lehi, Thailand, may Allah azza wa jal Bless you all and keep you safe and healthy wherever you are alone. So shout Allahu Allah episode six tomorrow Bismillah. Remember, once again, we are going to do about 10 of these maybe 12 we'll see how it goes in sha

00:23:17--> 00:23:30

Allah. But I will post the link to this door out both in Arabic and English as well as the narration that we've talked about today. A lie so which will bless you Until we meet again, take care everyone was Salam or Aleikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh
