they were doing Hadith number 19 tonight, and I'm actually really excited about this hadith because Hadith number 19 is one of my two favorite Hadith inside the nama Noah's collection of 40 Hadith, just because it's such a comprehensive, such a beautiful Hadith, and it shows you not only the kindness of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but his wisdom and perfect example in all aspects of life. So let's get going. So Abdullah Abdullah bin Abdullah Abdullah Omar cada going to hunter Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a Yeoman fukada de Yehuda in the valley mocha callimachus for the La Jolla hot air for the latter Jean Jacques.

la mia cuando se back when I saw bacala Miyako, Leo Seok Nasir mouseover. Photo Jamal curb, intercity usara, Sonia 30 of our bus of de la busca de la Houma, who said one day I was writing behind the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, Oh young man, shall I teach you some words of advice. Be mindful of Allah and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah and you will find him in front of you. If you ask ask of Allah and if you seek help seek help in Allah know that if the nation were to gather together to benefit you with something, they would not benefit you with anything except that Allah has already recorded it for you. And if they were

00:02:38--> 00:03:15

together to harm you by something, they will not be able to harm you by anything, except that Allah has already recorded it against you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried. This Hadith was recorded by a telemedia who said it is hasin and Saif in a narration other than that of intermediate states, be mindful of Allah and you will find him in front of you become beloved to Allah during times of prosperity, and he will know you in times of adversity. Know that what has passed was never meant to befall you and know that what has befallen you was never meant to have passed you and know that victory accompanies perseverance, relief accompanies affliction and ease

00:03:15--> 00:03:55

accompanies hardship. When you look at this beautiful Hadith My dear brothers and sisters, you notice that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam literally summarizes the important the most important elements and aspects of our belief pertaining to Adam in this Hadith, and when you look at the element of culture and the role that it plays in our lives, you'll realize that our proper belief in others is what builds a foundation for an individual, a strong sturdy Foundation, meaning that no matter what calamity strikes an individual, then that person is able to find stability. And that is why when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addresses, this

00:03:55--> 00:04:31

tab will open a bus, or the Allahumma, who has not even hit puberty. At the time that this hadith has been narrated to him. It realizes that he meant you will realize that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had this grand vision of creating leaders in his oma and this is something that inshallah we'll uncover in this beautiful Hadith. So as for general comments about this hadith we mentioned that it talks about the basic elements of color and the relationship that the slave has with Allah subhanho wa Taala. One of the great scholars of the past by the name of Edna Josie Rahim Allah, He says about this Hadith, I pondered over this hadith and it amazed me to

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

the point that I became lightheaded. What a pity for the one who is ignorant of this hadith and has little understanding of its meaning. So he mentioned two points that he pondered it to the degree that he got lightheaded because he kept on deriving so many benefits from this hadith. And he said, What a sad state of affairs it is for the individual that doesn't know this hadith and is unable to extract its meanings. That is how deep this hadith actually is. So the narrator of this hadith is Abdullah bin abass, who was the cousin of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

Sella he was born three years before he God and died 68 years after HD. So how old was he when he died?

00:05:12--> 00:05:51

He was 71 years old when he or the Allahumma passed away. And Abdullah busca de la Han, who are the love and humor was from, you know, bunny Hashem. So he's from the very close tribe of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this particularly, you know, played a great role in him keeping close company of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, one due to the bondage of Islam, but second due to the bond of family. This caused us constantly to be with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so much so that when it came to narrating Hadith from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was the fourth greatest Narrator In terms of number he

00:05:51--> 00:06:36

narrated 1660 Hadith from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made a special draft for Abdullah Ibis or the Allahumma that he said, Oh Allah, teach him the understanding of this book, along with alcohol to deal with that will not grant him understanding of this beautiful religion and teach him the interpretation of the Quran. And that is why anyone that discusses the science of Tafseer is dependent upon it of sera of Abdullah nobis because there was no great scholar, there was no greater scholar in tafsir other than Abdullah Barnabas, or the Allahu and Homer, so eventually, during the time of ID Vitaly kailasa, he

00:06:36--> 00:07:16

became the Khalifa of bussola. And when alumina we thought about rhodiola han who passed away after that he moved back to Paris, and that is where he eventually passed away. That is where he eventually passed away. The benefits of the virtues of Abdullah busca de la Noma are many and just dimension in I guess, some of the few of them the fact that the Messenger of Allah seven made one for him, that was one number two that the process of them told the companions that to learn the interpretation of the Quran from Abdullah bin Ibis number three, that if you look at some of the students of Abdullah bin Arbus, sala de la Noma, they used to say that I completed the Koran with

00:07:16--> 00:07:53

Abdullah bin abass no three times or four times or five times, and some of them even after like 10 times, they completed the Quran with Abdullah Nablus. Now what's amazing about that is not the fact that they read the Koran to adult cannabis. But the fact that Abdullah are best used to comment on the Quran, each time they would read the Koran with him. So in our day and age, if you can find, you know, a teacher that will teach you the Quran once, this is like something grandiose, but to find someone who's willing to go through the Quran with you 10 times to teach you its meanings. And he did this with multiple other students, you know, is a great achievement. So this was from the

00:07:53--> 00:08:34

virtues of Abdullah bus, Raja lavon, who are the Allahumma as well. So now starting off with the Hadith, he says, One day I was writing behind the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the scholars of Hadith derived from this, that it is permissible for two individuals to ride on one horse, or camel as long as the animal can carry that burden. And it shows you the level of detail that the scholars of Hadith used to go to in terms of deriving benefits from this, like when you hear in one day I was writing behind the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you wouldn't think to derive that you know what this indicates that it is permissible for two men to

00:08:34--> 00:09:11

ride on the same camel on the same horse, and there's nothing wrong with it. And this is what the one of the first benefits that the scholars of Hadith mentioned over here. Some of the scholars argued that abdomen Ambassador lavon, Houma was not on the same camera as the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but rather he was walking behind the Messenger of Allah. But if you look at the narration in the midst of the Vemma mathematics, it makes it very, very clear that our delivering our bus was actually on the same camel as the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. Then he starts off by saying Yahoo, lamb, or young boy or young man. And this teaches us a very valuable

00:09:11--> 00:09:54

lesson that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam paid very, very close attention to the young people in his oma and you'll find this with Abdullah bin abass with not mine Abu Bashir with Abdullah bin Massoud rhodiola, and how much money that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam took very special care of advising them in this young age. And each of them was given these prophetic Hadith that would shape and dictate the way their lives were. So in this had the suburban or bus or the Allahumma is not even you know, like 10 to 13 years old, very very young, when this is actually taking place. Now this Hadith, Abdullah bin abus he narrates it in such a way to make sure that

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

people understand that he's narrating this hadith directly from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

Whereas the vast majority of Hadith that he narrated, he narrated through other companions, so he would narrate them through aliana be authoritative, he would narrate them through Wilder companions. But this hadith is directly narrating from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he lets us know this, right? He's letting us know that he heard this directly from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that he didn't, you know, forget any of the words that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him, so he tells them all young man, shall I not teach you some words. Another benefit derived from this very point is the element of making the most

00:10:36--> 00:11:12

of one's time. So you're riding through the desert, you're on the camel and the journey. And you can be talking about a wide variety of things, right? The Messenger of Allah so suddenly, he could have just stayed silent. He could have asked him, you know, how was your day? What did you do you know what's new in your life, but rather the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took that opportunity to teach this young man, the basic foundations of this theme, the basic foundations of this theme. And this shows us not only the element of you know, the Messenger of Allah, investing in the future, but the Messenger of Allah teaching him good habits in terms of how to make the most of

00:11:12--> 00:11:49

one's time, right. So when you look at time, none of it, can you achieve back right. No matter what you do, the time that has passed you, you'll never ever be able to get back. And this is what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching him through his very example that we have time together, let us make the most of it, let us make the most of it. So every opportunity you have to hang around with the guys, where you're hanging around with your family, you know, whoever you're spending time with, make sure you make the most of that time. And the best way to spend your time is in the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala and learning this beautiful Deen. So the Messenger of

00:11:49--> 00:12:24

Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, In the limo can imagine I shall teach you a few number of words. The scholars derived the wisdom behind this is that a young man, he can become overwhelmed and perplexed that the messenger of lust telling him I'm going to teach you some words. So the man the young man, he may start to think you know what, these words are going to be very heavy upon me, they're going to be a lot in number. How am I going to remember them? How am I going to memorize them, but the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he brings ease and comfort to him. He says, I'm just going to teach you a few words. So memorize them, you know, take care of them, be

00:12:24--> 00:12:52

very meticulous with the be very diligent with them. So this would not be very burdensome upon the Messenger of Allah. And it shows that the Messenger of Allah, you know, he had the wisdom in terms of of dealing with a young child rather than overburdening him with a vast amount of information. It was just a little bit of information, but it was extremely relevant in shaping the life of Abdullah bin Arbus. And the first words he tells him now is for the left,

00:12:53--> 00:13:31

that preserve Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will preserve you. Now this is the literal meaning of the Hadith. But that's not what actually the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was getting across, because how does a person protect Allah or preserve Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah is not in need of our preservation or protection, but rather Allah subhanaw taala is the one that preserves and protects us. So if you look throughout to the Koran, one is this term HIV used in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the term health in terms of protecting the Salah half was one of Salatu was Salam was thought that we know preserve the prayers and preserve

00:13:31--> 00:14:12

the middle prayer in particular one half a Lena will have to do or do the law and those people that protect the boundaries of Allah subhana wa Tada, one of the Dinelli Fuji him have his own and those people that protect and preserve their private parts. So generally when you look at this term have mentioned in the Quran, it is mentioned in terms of protecting the boundaries and sanctuaries of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching him over here, that if you protect and guard the sanctuaries of Allah subhanho wa Taala, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will protect you and take care of you as well. And you find this

00:14:12--> 00:14:53

relationship of you know, do this for Allah. And Allah will do this for you several times in the in the Quran internshala Han Solo call, that if you were to give victory to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhana wa Taala will give you victory, you fulfill the covenant with Allah, Allah will fulfill the covenant with you first koroni as Coco remember me and I shall remember you. So unless I know what Allah teaches us a very simple principle is that the way we interact with the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the way that Allah subhanho wa Taala will deal with us as well. Now this is important, because when you look at the second narration that we mentioned, and it is the first

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

narration that is actually authentic, and the second narration it has weaknesses in it, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

Send him he tells us in the secondary ship to Iraq in a life of raha ers kifissia that turned to Allah in times of prosperity and Allah subhanaw taala will remember you, in times of adversity will remember you in times of adversity. So this concept of remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala and preserving the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala is a lifelong mission, right? So particularly when you want to listen with Allah to take care of you in your times of difficulty, you need to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala in your times of ease as well. But as a general rule, we should consciously and constantly being mindful of the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala not letting any single part of

00:15:44--> 00:16:27

it escape us. So that is in terms of protecting and preserving the rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala How does Allah subhanho wa Taala actually protect and preserve us, the preservation and protection of Allah subhanho wa Taala is in two ways, and one of them is more important than the other one of them is more important than the other. So the first type of protection is the physical protection, where Allah subhana wa Taala protects our health, he protects our wealth, he protects our bodies. He protects our families, protects our children, protects our friends, protects our possessions. This is the first type of protection and preservation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the companions

00:16:27--> 00:17:06

and the predecessors they used to say that when we used to commit sins, we would recognize the effect of our of our sins in our in the things that we used to possess. So we noticed that the days that we used to commit sins, our animals would not be as obedient as they usually are, our crops and vegetation would not grow normally in times of sin, right. So we used to see this effect. So an individual who wants that protection from Allah subhanho wa Taala in his physical things, needs to be obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now the second type of protection and this is the most important of them, is when Allah subhanho wa Taala preserves and protects the deen and faith of the

00:17:06--> 00:17:28

individual. This is the most important type of protection and preservation from Allah subhanho wa Taala that an individual who is mindful of the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala then Allah subhanho wa Taala will protect his Deen who can think of an example of this from the Quran? where Allah subhanho wa Taala protected the Dean of the individual due to his righteousness

00:17:35--> 00:17:36

you guys want to hit to actually go for it

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

cirtl calf

00:17:40--> 00:17:46

story of young men is a very indirect version of it but I'm looking for something very explicit

00:17:48--> 00:17:50

when when in use Vanessa

00:17:54--> 00:17:55

aha

00:17:57--> 00:18:00

Okay, and do you know what Allah subhanaw taala said about that?

00:18:04--> 00:18:06

Yes, it is on the tip of your tongue I know it

00:18:10--> 00:18:14

so it's not about what he said well what did I know it's Allah say about use of at that time.

00:18:17--> 00:18:58

Very close. What can rarely cannot sleep and how soon it will fascia in who can amend a bed in and macula scene, and thus we averted him from an fascia from this evil and lewd deeds. In the Academy. I didn't know that he was from our sincere and protected slaves. So let's find the with Donna protected his dean at that time, from this great desire that he might have had from a corruption of his religion. Now the protection in the deen is more important than the protection in one's property and in one's life, because we're touching on one's life and one's property. All that is pertaining to the dunya but protection of one's Acura Not only is that beneficial in the dunya as well, but

00:18:58--> 00:19:36

it's even more beneficial in the Acura that it is the distinguishing factor between gender and gender right. So for one to be protected from great desires from one to be protected with doubts returning to his faith. This is you know, one of the most important of affairs and that will only take place if people are mindful of the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this teaches us a very important lesson that you know, people who start losing their religious identity and start having a crisis in faith. It's somewhere starts with them, losing the deeds that they used to do losing the deeds that they used to do. So in order for you to retain your faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala you

00:19:36--> 00:19:42

actually have to make that effort to protect your faith you have to make that effort to protect your faith.

00:19:43--> 00:19:45

Now we move on to

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

the second Hadith, the same lining was the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, For the law turgid who among or turgid who doubt you will find a surgeon who to jack that

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

You will find him in front of you are in the direction that you are facing. Now why does the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned this point in particular, that if you preserve the rights and sanctity of Allah subhanho wa Taala then you will find Allah in front of you or in the direction that you are facing. The scholars commented on this part by saying that each and every one of us is upon a journey towards the Acura, right? Each and every one of us whether we like it or not, we're in a journey towards the Acura it's inevitable, but the one who is mindful of Allah subhanho wa Taala then he is on a straight journey towards the Acura with a destination is his

00:20:38--> 00:21:15

meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala whereas the person who's not mindful of Allah subhanaw taala and not preserving the sanctuaries of Allah subhanho wa Taala then he is going left and right and you know, it's you know, diagonal and and all other directions, except the direction towards facing Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right, because that is not the sole author who stuck him anymore. That's like a path of doubt, a path of desire, and that is the path that he's upon. So here the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying that if you want to stay upon the salado team, and you want to be guided to the setup of the team, then you need to make that effort to preserve and

00:21:15--> 00:21:19

protect the boundaries and sanctuaries of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:21:20--> 00:22:00

Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes on to say, what it is for Selinda, that if you were to ask, then ask of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is such an integral part of this Hadith, that when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is addressing this young 13 year old boy, and he's telling him that if you were to ask, asked only of Allah subhanho wa Taala, you come to see the profound effect that it has you come to see the profound, the effect that it has. So asking have lots of panels under this is known as the act of making dua. And this is perhaps the most integral parts of our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala, where the slave asks of

00:22:00--> 00:22:42

Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala gives in return. So here the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching our beloved our bus that when you develop this habit of asking, get into the habit of asking Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, because this is from the protection of one story, this is from the protection of one story. And then when you think about logically, logically speaking, it only makes sense to ask of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why even larger Rahim? Allah, he mentioned three reasons. Reason number one, is that if you were to ask the creation, by asking that creation, you give them an opportunity to say no to you, right? So when you

00:22:42--> 00:23:22

ask another individual, they may say yes, they may say no, but you're giving them an opportunity to say no, whereas when you ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, it is a guaranteed Yes, from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two, the individual that you're asking, may be capable of giving you what you want, he may not be capable of giving you what you want. Whereas when you ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, then Allah subhana wa Taala is capable of all things is capable of all things. And the third of them and this is perhaps one of the greatest of them is that when you ask another individual, the individual that gives you he may have your best interests in mind, he may not have your best interest in mind,

00:23:22--> 00:24:02

right? In fact, when the individual gifts for a mass majority of human beings they give because they are their own personal, you know endeavors in mind, that I'm giving this individual a favor so that I can get a favor back in the future, right. That's the general tendency we'll have when we do these interactions that you scratch my back. And you know, I'll scratch yours was with Allah Subhana Allah Subhana, Allah subhanho wa Taala, when he gives the slave, he always has the best interest of the slave in mind. So these are three explicit reasons that acknowledge about him Allah mentions that it only makes sense to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. And in fact, this is one of the fundamental

00:24:02--> 00:24:47

components of our faith that we consider an act of ibadah. In fact, it is perhaps one of the greatest acts of anybody, if not the greatest act of a bother write the message of law. So now, he says, a doula who Alibaba that do are is the key component of worship with and of itself. Now this is due to the fact that it is the act of a Bible that we do most frequently. This is due to the fact that it is the act that is most beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala as well. And it is due to the fact that this is, you know, signifies the relationship between the creation and the Creator, that the creators authority is established and his magnification is established. When we ask the creator

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

and our loneliness, our weakness, our you know, humility and humbleness is established when we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this shows us the significance of making a dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

And there's so many, you know, beautiful narrations of the people of the past. When it comes to, you know, this act of Doha that there is a an individual scholar by the name of Abu Saleh, and he had a statement that he used to tell his students that, you know, keep knocking on the door of Allah and eventually he will open it for you and eventually he will open it for you or the other way or when she heard the statement of Abu Saleh. She said May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgiveable solid, for who told him that the door of Allah even closed for who told him that the door of Allah subhana wa tada is even closed, meaning that Allah subhanho wa Taala is hearing our supplications and answering

00:25:39--> 00:26:18

our supplications at all times, and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam affirmed this force that either Allah gives you what you want when you want it, or he delays it to a later time, or Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't give you what you asked for, but rather prevents an equal amount of harm in your dunya and akhira. Because that thing was not good for you. So let's find out what Allah He kept it away from you he kept it away from you. And this is from you know, the beautiful lessons of asking from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what do we actually learn from the act of asking Allah subhanho wa Taala when we ask Allah subhana wa Tada, we recognize that Allah subhanaw taala is

00:26:18--> 00:27:05

the only one worthy of worship. Number two, we recognize how weak we are, and how strong Allah is, how poor we are, and how rich Allah subhana wa tada is, how dependent we are and how independent Allah subhanho wa Taala is. Number three, Allah subhanho wa Taala He rewards us for asking. And this is such a beautiful lesson in this part, that when it comes to you know, the people of this dunya one of the predecessors, I can't remember his name right now. He used to say that do not ask of a creation that gets annoyed when you ask of them. Do not ask them a creation that gets annoyed when you ask of them. But ask of the one that commands you to ask him but ask him the one that commands

00:27:05--> 00:27:48

you to ask him. And this shows us that you know not only does Allah subhanaw taala give us what we want by asking for it. But Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards us for it, He rewards us for it. Number four, Allah subhanho wa Taala gets pleased with the individual that asks of Allah, and he gets angry at the one that doesn't ask Allah subhana wa Tada. were called out of Docomo, the only as the gibler come in and Edina is stuck around and he by the tea said hello Johanna Mercury, that your Lord has said call upon me. And I will answer you, those people that turn away from it by the IE breaking their heart to me shall enter jahannam in the state of humiliation and degradation in the state of

00:27:48--> 00:28:29

humiliation and degradation. So Allah subhanho wa Taala becomes pleased with the slave becomes pleased with the slave. The slave that asked Allah subhanho wa Taala in this dunya then Allah subhanho wa Taala gives him in this dunya and the Euro, but the creation that is not asked of Allah, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will withhold from him in this dunya and will deprive him even further in the future. So when you look at Jenna and Jana, Allah subhanaw taala describes the people agenda by saying the homebuyer shall own the fee How will Edina Miss eat that the people have agenda, they will ask, you know they will get every single thing that they desire, and Allah will still give more

00:28:29--> 00:28:58

to them right? They will he'll still have more to give them the people of Jannah because they refuse to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala in this dunya and the Acura when they ask Allah for comfort We ask Allah for cold water they ask Allah for for Kufa for cool, Allah subhanaw taala deprives them of that and then gradually increases their punishment in the hereafter. So these are some of the benefits of asking Allah subhanho wa Taala These are some of the benefits of asking Allah subhanho wa Taala. As a last point, what is the ruling

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

on asking other than Allah subhanho wa Taala shake up the female human law when he comes in this part of the Hadith, he says it is a diminishing of one star heed to ask other than Allah subhanho wa Taala even if they are capable of doing so. And this is what they've been telling me or him Allah actually argued that if you look at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he took an oath from three companions. He took an oath from Abu Bakr Siddiq from Abu Dhabi.

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

And thought about these three companions, he took an oath from them, that they would never ask the creation for anything, that even if they're the reins of their camel was the fall, they would pick it up themselves, rather than ask for someone if their shoelaces were to break, they would ask Allah but would not ask the creation, right. And they the lesson derived from this is that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was perfecting their tawheed right was protecting their belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it's not to say that if you actually

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

The creation, your faith or theory is nullified. No. But rather it is to say that your faith

00:30:07--> 00:30:50

does become deficient. Because you're asking other than the creation, you're asking, you're sorry, you're asking other than the Creator. And that shows a deficiency. So now when does it become permissible to ask the creation, even if they mean, hi Mahatma, he mentioned two conditions over here. Number one, is that it becomes permissible to ask the creation, only in those things that you know, that they can help you in. And that it is not exclusive to Allah. So they can only help you in and it is not exclusive to Allah. So you're asking for guidance, you're asking for forgiveness, you're asking for children, all of these things are in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the

00:30:50--> 00:31:28

Christian cannot help you in them. However, you're lost in the street, you're asking for directions, you need to change for your bills, you know, the creation can help you in that, those sort of things, you can ask the creation, that is condition number one. condition number two, is that they still mentioned the chicken the female female still mentions that even before you ask the creation, you should still ask the Creator, you should still ask the Creator. See before you even ask for directions, have nothing in common law says that ask Allah to send you someone who will help you with directions. And if you're looking for change, you ask about Oh Allah, Grant me someone who will

00:31:29--> 00:32:11

you know change these bills for me? You ask Allah subhanho wa Taala first that is from the perfection of once so hit. Now why is this so important? Why is this so important? He or him Allah He argues that when people stop asking of Allah subhanho wa Taala first, then they attribute the results to other than Allah subhanho wa Taala they attribute the results to other than Allah subhanho wa Taala when in reality, all of the results that happen are from Allah subhanho wa Taala so policeman came to save you. It was because I know what Allah allowed him to save you. a fireman stopped your house from burning down. It was because Allah subhanho wa Taala granted him the ability

00:32:11--> 00:32:41

to save your house from burning down, right? So Allah subhanho wa Taala deserves the praise. And then the rest of the matters are just the cause. The essence behind it is Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is what she could not say me or Hey, Mama did not want the Muslim nation to lose. And he says, This is what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his various you know narrations wanted words might as well that they should always attribute everything back to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:32:42--> 00:33:26

Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he goes on to stay to say when it's the antifa Stein biller that if you were to seek help from anyone, then only seek help from Allah subhanho wa Taala. The scholars commented on this part with the previous support. And he said that it is as if the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching him the most important verse in the Quran, which is he cannot do what he can stay in. That it is only you that we worship IE make dua to and it is only you that we seek assistance from even Raja Rahim Allah. He comments on this verse by saying, He says that Allah subhanho wa Taala summarized all of revelation that is in

00:33:26--> 00:34:06

the Koran and all of the revelation that came before it in this verse, that it is to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and realize that it is only Allah subhanho wa Taala that can give and benefit and can protect from harm or harm the slave. This is what all the revelation is summarized in this in these words. So they said when the Messenger of Allah says to them, taught him the second part with a standard, sustained Billa that if you seek help, only seek help from Allah subhanho wa Taala. It is to summarize this one beautiful noble verse in the Quran. That is the essence of all of Revelation, according to immunology, according to a been Raja.

00:34:07--> 00:34:49

When the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he goes on to say, that know that if the nation would get together together to benefit you, they would not benefit you with anything, except that Allah subhanho wa Taala had decreed it for you. Now here the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is showing up in our bus, multiple lessons in this one sentence. Number one, the ultimate authority is Allah subhanho wa Taala. That there is no movement there is no power, there is no essence of result, we accept with other than Allah subhanho wa Taala, right. Number two, Allah subhanho wa Taala His messengers are so them is showing him how weak the creation is. He says if the

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

whole almost together together, and other than aeration, he says, if all of the creation were together together and benefit you with something, it is only because Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

had already ordered it for you.

00:35:04--> 00:35:46

When you look at the headings of Jabba rhodiola Honto, where the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's telling the companions, that everything that you do, has already been written by Allah subhanho wa Taala and then Jebel Ali Allahu anhu. He asked the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on messenger of Allah, the path to paradise. If it's already written for us, then you know what is the relationship with deeds? Meaning Why do we have to do the deeds that we're commanded to do for our destination is already known. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at that time, he says, For Kowloon, Maja surah, Lima, Haleakala Jazakallah he says that

00:35:46--> 00:35:47

everything,

00:35:48--> 00:36:28

everything will be easy for the individual that it was written down for. Now here the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he established his positive characteristics Inside Out of the Lebanon bus from those positive characteristics, that he should only fear Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two is that he shouldn't fear the creation. Number three is that he should be courageous and bold. Number four is that he should have lofty ambitions because Allah subhanaw taala can make anything happen. Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he teaches him the exact opposite as well. He says, if the whole almost all creation or to gather together to harm you with

00:36:28--> 00:37:11

something, they will not be able to harm you, except that Allah subhanho wa Taala had already written it for you. The wisdom behind that is also many. Number one, again, showing the weakness of the creation that they only work by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two is that when it comes to protecting you from harm, it is only Allah subhanho wa Taala that can protect you from harm, no one else can protect you from harm. Number three is if something is meant to happen to you, it's going to happen, face it, deal with reality, move on with it. Now all of this when you deal with it, you need that introduction first. And getting to know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is

00:37:11--> 00:37:46

there. And if you preserve the boundaries of Allah, Allah will take care of you, if you call upon anyone call upon Allah because it is only Allah that can answer your call. So now when you're in this predicament, it actually makes sense why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling him all of this, that if something befalls you, then there's many, many reasons for it. Unless trying to teach you something, he's going to forgive your sins, he's going to increase your reward is going to get you closer to him is going to increase your rank and paradise. He will you know, lessen your time in the hellfire. All of these things are a result of the calamities and

00:37:46--> 00:38:24

hardships that we face. Right? So here when you have this introduction, and a 13 year old boy is being taught these valuable lessons, you can see his outlook on life is going to be completely different to the young boy that did not receive this information. And it shows you how Abdullah busca de la Hama went on to become this great individual, because the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam imported this great knowledge upon him, imported this great knowledge upon him. Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he concludes this beautiful Hadith by saying raffia tilaka was your photo. So just for the sake of that the pens have been lifted, and the

00:38:24--> 00:39:03

pages have dried, so the pens that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam is referring to in the pages, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam was referring to are the pages of destiny, meaning that everything that is meant to happen has already been written and pre ordained, right? So it's going to happen, be prepared for it, be prepared for it. And at the same time, your pastor paradise, you don't know where it lies, right? You don't know which deed is going to be in that Allah subhanaw taala is going to say, you know what, Allah have mercy upon you and enter you into paradise. So you keep doing as many good deeds as you can. And then when it comes to facing trials and calamities,

00:39:04--> 00:39:41

Allah's Messenger has given us so much recourse in this hadith itself, that, you know, if you take care of the boundaries of Allah, Allah will take care of you, right? when bad things happen to you in life. It's because of the sins that you commit. That when you need help, make sure you ask of Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, when you seek help, seek help from Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, when good things happen to you in your life, know that it is purely from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when the bad happens, Allah subhanho wa Taala Even then, what's good for you Even then what's good for you? And he teaches us so many lessons through

00:39:41--> 00:40:00

adversity that we would never learn through prosperity. We learned so many lessons through adversity that we wouldn't learn through prosperity, and that is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching this young man. Now just to take a brief look at the other narration of this hadith before we can

00:40:00--> 00:40:36

As you mentioned, the first narration is strong and the second narration is weak. That's why we're not spending too much time on the second narration. But when you look at the second narration of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam, there's three points that we actually do derive from it. Number one, he says that if you turn to Allah in times of prosperity, he will remember you in times of adversity. So we generally covered this already. Number two, he says that anything that befalls you was not meant to escape you. And anything that escapes you was not mentioned at all you then this too, we also covered in the first Hadees as well. However, the ending of the Hadith we didn't

00:40:36--> 00:41:15

really cover in the first studies, and that is when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that know that victory comes with perseverance, that ease comes after calamity. And that is comes after hardship. These three things we didn't really cover, and this is what I want to focus on, before we conclude. So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaching a young boy about victory and perseverance. He tells him that know that victory only comes with perseverance. What exactly do those words mean? That in life, you will make mistakes, you will fall down, and the victorious person is going to be the individual that gets up one more time, after he falls down, the

00:41:15--> 00:41:54

further stay sitting down, the failure stays lying down the victorious the one is the one that gets up just one more time. And that is what victory is. So he's telling him that regardless of how many mistakes you make, regardless of how many times you fall, keep persevere and keep striving hard, for eventually you will be victorious, that in order to be victorious in life, then you have to keep persevering. You have to keep striving heart and this is what then when you look at the later you know expeditions as they come about Muslims were you know, very, very few in number, the non Muslims are in great large numbers, but the messenger of lesser Salaam is saying that you will just make an

00:41:54--> 00:42:00

effort to try and you will persevere. Then the second thing he tells him is that

00:42:02--> 00:42:44

hardship is always accompanied by ease and comfort, right. So when an individual goes through a calamity goes through hardship, then almost panatela will always bring them ease and comfort. And I want you to look at it in terms of two drastic opposites. So when you think of pain, the opposite of it is pleasure. So here the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling him that anytime you face pain, it will be accompanied by pleasure. And this pleasure is of many, many types, right? The pleasure of overcoming your hardship, the pleasure of entering into paradise, the pleasure of seeing Allah subhanho wa Taala, the pleasure of having your deeds magnified. These are

00:42:44--> 00:43:21

all pleasures that the slave will face. But what the messenger of Lhasa Salaam subliminally telling him is that in every pain that you feel, there is a pleasure, every pain that you feel, there is a pleasure, you just need to realize it. And that is with the belief that you know my sins are being forgiven by good deeds are being multiplied. That is where the pleasure comes into play. And then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he concludes in the second narration by saying that with hardship comes ease with hardship, comes ease. And this has two meanings to it. Number one, in the worldly perspective, that every time you face a hardship in this life, then Allah

00:43:21--> 00:44:00

subhanho wa Taala always sends ease right after, right? It's not possible that Allah will send you a hardship, and it isn't followed by ease in this life, right. And then number two, is a principle in the [???]tier, that whenever things get difficult in this area, then Allah subhanho wa Taala always accommodates with a concession that there will always be concessions for the individual in times of difficulty. So it's extremely cold a person, you know, is out in the in the wilderness, the county May was still in the river. So what do they do, they can make to move in that situation, right? That is what the concession is for. So that is the second benefit derived from the second Hadeeth towards

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

its ending. And as you mentioned, the second these, it actually has some weakness in it. That's why we didn't focus on it. Now, the benefits from this hadith as we looked at were were, you know, profound and many, but summarizing those points again, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he taught us the following points in this hadith. Number one, the importance of giving tarbiyah and training our youth, right, the Messenger of Allah took Abdullah bin Arbus nomatter, Bashir, Abdullah bin Massoud already young age started advising them start spending time with them being in their company. Number two, the Messenger of Allah is teaching us the importance of time,

00:44:36--> 00:44:59

the writing on their journey, they could have been doing anything the Messenger of Allah is taking this opportunity to advise him. Number three, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us speaking skills that he's telling us look, I'm going to teach you some words. Don't become overwhelmed by them. They're only going to be a few. Right? So he's teaching us how to speak to the various levels of people when you face when you're dealing with a young child.

00:45:00--> 00:45:37

don't overwhelm them with a lot of information, teach them a little bit at a time, let them understand it and then move on to the next thing. And that is what the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam teaches us. And then in terms of the actual, you know, text itself, that when you preserve Allah subhanho wa Taala his boundaries, Allah will never forsake you. In fact, the more you preserve the boundaries of a law, the closer you get to a law, the more Allah subhanho wa Taala will take care of you, right. And when an individual preserves those boundaries, Allah subhanho wa Taala will put him on the street path where Allah subhanho wa Taala is his ultimate destination is his ultimate

00:45:37--> 00:46:14

destination. And at the request of the slave at the Ask him the slave, Allah subhanaw taala is always there. And that is why the command to ask Allah and Allah alone, and there will be times when you will, you will need help, so only as kalpa the one that can truly help you. And that is Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then the Messenger of Allah, Islam concluded, in terms of how weakness how weak and feeble, we are as accretion that even if we gather together to benefit something, we wouldn't be able to do so except by the permission of Allah subhana wa Tada. And if we wanted to harm someone or something, we wouldn't be able to do so except by the permission of Allah subhanho

00:46:14--> 00:46:54

wa Taala and everything that happens is written in Qatar, right. And that is why it is of the utmost importance to have such a strong belief and foundation and realizing that Allah subhanho wa Taala had destiny written down 50,000 years before the creation of the heavens and the earth. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows everything that is was will be and if there was an ulterior or an alternate universe, Allah subhanaw taala would have known that as well. Number three, is that the will of Allah subhana wa tada will always take precedence. So for most of what Allah has not willed it, it will not happen, it will not happen. And those are from the most important pillars of our belief in

00:46:54--> 00:47:26

Qatar, that the young children should be made to know, right? That when you tell teach them these things at a young age, tell them who Allah is. Tell them about our relationship to Allah tell them about, you know, the blessings of draw and seeking help from a lion how Allah will always be there to help. It really develops the character of the young individual. And this is what we saw the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doing with Abdullah bin Arbus or the Allahu nkhoma. And with that we will conclude with some a lot more selama vaticana Vienna Muhammad Ali he was off he was set up
