brothers and sisters, I said I'm on a promotion for law, he was gonna cancel.
On the way here. I was contemplating over to these lecture. And they remembered the first day I started studying heavy and we went to customer environments. And we were studying Sahil Bukhari
and our teacher in the Islamic University of Medina. He mentioned a
very interesting story. And it was a story that has affected me throughout the years. With it, I renew my intention, every time I seek knowledge. With this, I become more enthusiastic in sharing that knowledge. And with it, I have more patience, or the trials and adversities that Allah subhanaw taala tries and tested me with. And this is the story of a famous companion, Vinay by the name of Jagger, Abdullah, radi Allahu Allah. And
for those of you who have heard his name, he is one of the companions who narrated the most Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If you look at the top 10 narrators from the pups of a lot of them, you will see his name amongst them. So this noble and illustrious companion, after the death of the puppets, a little rough audio sort of, do you remember the Hadith of the Prophet? sallallahu? wasallam? Yes, he was unsure as to its exact wording. And he recollected that that very day, when he published from aloha to send him, No, he decided to him, there is another man that other companions by the name of Abdullah ignore.
Now, at this very moment, I don't recollect where this companion was, whether it was to Syria, or to Egypt, what it was to one of these two locations. So Java, or the Allahu tadanobu, being a companion for Medina, he took it upon himself to get all his belongings housed in the confines of the Policy Center. Not all of them were granted with wealth. So we had to sell some of his belongings. And with that, selling off his property, he rented or he bought something to write upon whether it would be a camel or horse, and he went to this long distance, this journey of a month to go to see Abdullah.
So once he gets to our beloved rnases house, he knocks on the door, and he sees the servants of Abdullah come out, and he says, Who are you and observer and Jabara de la Vega? Who says, Is this the house, our Villa? and surprise, yes. And he says, Who are you? And he says, I am Java. And he says, Java, who is Java, the Companion of the Prophet sallallahu.
So the servant he gets astonished, another Companion of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam coming to see us. So he heard his insight. And he tells us the law, that there's a man here claiming to be the Companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So he comes out to Jebel of your local town. And he's astonished. He's like, I left you behind in Medina, what is it? That is what you hear this dirt just joining us 30 days of trials and hardships, with lack of food, lack of water in the desert, what is it that is brought to you here? It must be a very important to matter to which job but of your lungs on on who he says that? Do you remember that day, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
narrated this habit to us? And then he started to mention the Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
That's on yo mo pm. The people will be gathered in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala first and Arosa that you will be gathered in front of Allah subhana wa sallam there without anything on your feet. And those who are far from Allah subhanho wa Taala will hear Allah subhanho wa Taala. Just like those who are close to the end of the heavies is a very long heavy, but it can be found as the head of Makati under the chapter of the Day of Judgment, or it's time.
So, Javelin, he mentioned this to Abdullah Ali, and he's like, Is this how you heard it from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? And Abdullah replies Yes, this is how
to witch juggle rajala Hassan who he gave us the Rams and he went on his way. And October's even more astonished now. He's that you came to ask me for this one physique and one happy alone, to which juggler de la Husein and who said that I was hesitant, that I should know is something from the puppet from Allah while he was send them in accurately. And then he made his way back to the theme. So you see, this was the enthusiasm. This was the love. This was the desire of the companions, or the Allahu taala and home to study the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they will travel the journeys of months and days in the desert, without food, without water,
going through every adversity, just to attain that tradition. Now look at the blessing that Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed us in today, we travel in air conditioned cars we travel in planes that can make that can get us from point A to point B, no matter how long distance within 24 hours, I think about my journeys from Medina back to Canada. I think that Imagine if I had to make this journey in the early 1900s, there are no planes. I would sit on a boat, maybe for months at a time. But now Allah subhanaw taala has facilitated facilitated it so I can travel this journey in a matter of hours. This is the blessing of Allah subhana wa Santa. And this is a short story I want to begin
with today, as our discussion is based upon a noble Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And this hadith is known as the three that went into the chain. So starting off with that, Emmanuel Bukhari Rahim Allah mentioned in his book had just an abaya man, about an issue. Iran is just an Italian bin Abdullah, Abdullah
Allahu Allah, Allah who I think will send me a hood. inside of us. Allah says ruthenium and China kubla Khan has
a large audience.
But hadera suffers from linear algebra Lisa said that Elisa malvar follow in the hula Eun Ji for man had his Sephora in the Mojave saw the American football Raja meantone Allah who McCann and the other one is Shivani caviar en la consola the Coca Cola Houma La la la la la sala de Pahlavi, Shea in Yeoman, but I'm already Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla Sahaja to her, to whom I know many

the SE is a very long tradition. So vizilite Allah will take it section by section.
So in other Makati, Ramallah he starts off by saying that about the man narrated to us that issue I informed him from azhari, the great man that he heard silence the slave of Abdullah, another young man who say that he heard to say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and this is where the heavy starts. Now this was the methodology of the source of the past that when they were narrative heavy, they would always start off with the change of narration. Nowadays, it is with great sadness today that when we study Hades, we genuinely just focus on the actual text of the heavy and not the chain of marriages. You see, it is from the blessings of Allah subhana wa tada
upon this oma that we are granted this chain of narration, because it is through this chain of narration that our Deen is protected, and what a great blessing it is. Now, before actually getting into this Hadith,
I actually want to mention two things. The first thing is a miracle that the Prophet sallallaahu Cinema spent this afternoon you think of the miracles that the prophet SAW a lot on your cinemas, right did what I did think of the Quran. Always think of the promise of the law of audio send them living the moon, always think of the ability of the puppets of aloha to sell and to feed a large amount of people with a little amount of food.
But how do these miracles directly affect us? Very few
Vehicles directly affect us in our time. But one of the few miracles that actually affects us in our times directly, is a miracle of preservation. Now, if you look at all the noble and illustrious personalities that have existed, from the time of our demanding Salaam, to our time today, you'll probably count hundreds and 1000s, if not millions, please personalities, whether they be generals or explorers, or any sort of leaders. But how many of those things, how many of their actions, how many of their stories were actually preserved, you will see that it is none of them. None of them have a complete recollection of how their lives are lived. No one's life which preserves that you
like the puppy, so love it.
Now, today, this is something interesting I learned from chef yes is plus in the morning saga, that the companions of the montagnana home was so specific and narrating about the puppet from Allah. And instead of that he got to the most meticulous details as to how many words here the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had in his beard. I didn't know the answer this morning. So there's anyone in 2014, as you were there,
a lot of you still had 14. I mean, it was a long time. And you mentioned in similar tirmidhi, that he had 14 white here in his beard. Now, obviously, this would vary from time to time, for the companions that are later, you would obviously have more lights here. But the poverty compared to the photo setup was so meticulous that it preserves and recorded the smallest of details. And you can imagine how strange of a feeling that might be that one day you're sitting with someone, and someone's just whispering them.
And you're like, What is he doing, but he's actually counting the What have we publicized a lot on Instagram. So again, this is a blessing that affects us as listeners directly, that the only people who met the Prophet sallallahu is and I were blessed with this companionship, they fulfilled their duty and obligation of learning, and memorizing and preserving everything you possibly could. So that 14 128 years later, we would have it just as they had it. This is a miracle directly. And when I thought about this and contemplated this,
it was just amazing, it really uplifted my mind that Islam has to be the hub, just uterus preservation. Now for number two that I want to mention,
one of the problems we have as Medina university students is that when all in all Arabic atmosphere, that you know, none of our cities speak English. There are 100 and you know, 39 different nationalities in the university. And the only common language you have amongst one another is the Arabic language. You speak Arabic, you know, regularly, and to speak English with someone is something very seldom and very rare. So what we try to often do is we Bibles in English and try to reason. So one of the books that a close friend of mine recommended to me was a book by an author by the name of Neil Postman. And he wrote a book called building a bridge to the 18th century. And in
this book, you know, one of the interesting things I found was how he takes this methodology of seeing how you always have to go back to your predecessors. Now, obviously, his predecessors, self defeating century, which was the enlightenment of the Western world, obviously, our enlightenment was at the time of the combining, and at the time when he talks a lot. So the introduction of his book, that's what he's talking about the importance of going back to your predecessors, and seeing how they thought and fulfilling that game plan or fulfilling that plan that they had. So one of the things he mentioned at the very beginning of this book, is the power that stories have. Now if you
take a moment and reflect and contemplate upon this, you will see what role does toys play in our lives? As a young child, what was it that our parents used to do to entertain us? As a young child? What was it that our parents used to do to put us to sleep? As we grew older, what is it that we do to our guests, when they come to our houses, we entertain them by telling them stories. And likewise, when he wants to report something, we will put it in a manner of his story when you watch the news, as if he's telling you a story. So you see the story plays a huge role in our life, which we often don't pay attention to. Now, stories can be for various purposes. The greatest of stories
are those that have the greatest morals and benefits learned from them. And this is another blessing from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, that even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had no formal education, even though he had no formal education, he was unable to read or write. But Allah Subhana Allah gave him many blessings from them was the ability whether it be by way of revelation or whether it should be
by a way of inspiration is the ability to tell stories that had the stresses of morals, which is one of our discussions today. So now getting back to the heavyset hand, we see that emammal bahaya Rahim Allah He married, that departed sallallahu Sallam said that there was three people from the people before you that as they were going, they were forced to go into a cave. Now, the heavy specifically was not mentioned what caused them to go into the case. But I'll have to
that the obvious reason being that there was some sort of stone outside, or it was getting late. But something caused them to go into this cave, it wasn't for any random or useless reason. So when he went inside this cave, they noticed that as soon as they went in, they were locked in a large border team and blocked off the entrance to this case. Now this second site, and obviously when someone gets stuck inside of a case, with no light, and if you're inside a cave that's locked up, you'll notice that the oxygen starts running out, and you naturally start to panic. So these three people being upon the facade, one of the people mentioned, this will be not the release of this adversity,
you will not be relieved of this trial, until you turn back to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and supplicate to him with your righteous deeds. So then they started with this, one by one, they started mentioning the righteous deeds that they did, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And the first man who mentioned that I had two parents, who were all in a safe home, he said that they were really old. And one day, and the Hadith mentioned that he was a shepherd, that he went out for a week. And as he was coming back, he got the food for the food for his parents. And for his family as a whole was milk. You know, it wasn't lavish meat, they didn't have rights. They didn't have, you
know, all these various dishes that we have today. But rather, they had simple foods, and they will surprise themselves with it. So the food that he had for himself and his family was milk. So he knows his animals, and he was on his way back home. So on his way back home when he returned, he noticed that his parents were already asleep. So he waited and waited, refusing to feed his family or his what he calls Mal, Mal, genuinely we understand from it, as well. But why would he fit his? Well, the obvious reason being that in the language of the arts, Mal is anything which is of intrinsic value, anything that possesses value, whether it be a pen, and microphone, or whether it
even be an animal that you can trade and sell anything would be called now. So he waited, he refused to feed his wife and children and his animals that needed his food, until he fed his parents first. Now look at the sun, and look at the righteousness that this man has towards his parents. You have your children crying as your your you have your wife, showing the sad face, and then you have your animals who are starving for food, yet you refuse to feed them for the sake of showing righteousness to your parents. So he says Allah
if I waited for my parents to get up, only for your sake and your sake alone, then alleviate discharged from us that we are in. Now before getting on to the second and third individuals. Let's take a moment and reflect upon what this mandate the righteousness towards parents is a very important topic and subject. books can be written on it. And individual lectures on it are given often that it is a very important topic, but from the Quran and Sunnah. How do we actually see the importance of righteousness towards one to one
from from what we know from the essence of Islam is that he felt like Mahalo to other places on the earth to worship him and him alone. And throughout our life. Our goal in life is to perfect our relationship in worshipping Allah subhana wa Adana alone. And thus you see that the very first commandment that Allah Subhana Allah gives in the Quran is total dakara. He mentioned Yeah, Johan that adorable upon that all mankind worship you Lord. This is the very first commandment. And at the same time, it is the most frequent commandment in the Quran as well, that worship your Lord alone. So that we see and Allah subhanho wa Taala he frequent those things which are important and now that
we have agreed upon that is the most important thing. Likewise, Allah subhanaw taala would take place, other important things with it. So that if you see those things which are placed with se, they would carry just as much weight or if not a little bit less than so if you look at the corner
How many is this Allah Subhana Allah Allah mentioned in that worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone will be lovely Dania Santa and show righteousness towards your parents. This is one way that we see the importance of righteousness towards our parents. Another way we see righteousness towards our parents is from a dean of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where a man, he wants us to go out on one of the expeditions, and he came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he said, Jada Sula. I want to go out with you on this expedition, to which the puppets have a lot Hollywood said, I asked him, Are your parents alive? And he said, Yes. So he said, 50 emails a day, that if they're
alive, then struggle in their way struggle, increasing them sugar, enjoy righteousness towards them. Then we have another example. As you mount Buhari Rahim, Allah mentioned in another Burma,
a fatwa of Israel, bustles alongside Angela, that a man came to him. And he said, Yeah,
I've committed this large list of things that he mentioned steering emergency. Now, he mentioned all these things that he committed. He's like, what can I do to make Toba to Allah subhanaw taala so that he may forgive me for my sins? Certainly I but before even saying anything, he asked him, is your mother alive? To which the man who said no, so then he said, seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala and inshallah we'll see one of the students that would be our best or your love, I'm Homer. Yes. What is it that you ask this man if his mother was alive? To wish him? Yeah, bustillos your Rahu and Homer are the longtime Anima mentioned, that I know of no deed, better in
the sight of Allah subhanaw taala than righteousness towards one's mother. So we see that towards our parents, is something very important. Allah subhana wa tada specified it in the Quran.
Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prevented a man from going on an expedition due to his parents being alive. And that we see in the back of your lungs and Homer, asking a man if his mother was alive, that Allah subhana wa sallam He forgive his for his death, forgive him for his death, due to his righteousness towards his mother. So our premise is understood this rule, and it is a very important aspect of Islam as well. Now on a more individual level, all of us have been blessed with tests for how do we not have praise Allah subhanaw taala wouldn't have allowed us to be in this dunya today. So Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed us with lives through our parents. And we have a
great obligation towards them for various reasons. Without getting into specific rewards that Allah subhanaw taala has placed, there are aspects that Allah makes in life, that he makes this a repeating cycle. And that repeating cycle is the way you treat yourself, the way you treat your parents is the way that you will want to be treated one day be treated by your children. When we were in the Arabic Institute at the Islamic University of Medina, one of our teachers, his specialization was actually in no sort of exception. But unless panelist either gave him a talent, to tell stories, so whenever we would finish our possibility, he would always tell a story. So one
day, he mentioned the story to us, in Medina, that there was a man walking with his son in the market. And as they walk into the market, you know, the father tells his son, go and get me such and such items from that store. The son already having items in his hand, he puts them down, and he gets very angry. He says that I carry all these items free and patient with all your commandments. Now, if you want anything, go and do it yourself. So a father, a bit disturbed, doesn't do anything. And they're working a bit more. And the father remembers, oh, I need such and such items from that store. So can you tell the sun going get me such and such items from that store? To which the sun
now is infuriated? He is raging with anger. He's like, do you freaking like a slave? Do you think you only and you pay me that I do all this work for you for free. If you want it, go get it yourself. So again, you know the father during the disgrace. He keeps on going. Now a time eventually comes with you're leaving the soup. And they're at the very end of the soup. And he says oh my son, I forgot such and such. Can you please go and get it for me. So now at this point, the son puts down all the things he's holding and starts beating up the father pounding him and pounding him and pounding him to his breathing and the people are
Getting around. Yes. And the same Have you been placed your beanie on father. And now this old man, he's like living legend de force was in this very spot, that I beat up my own father. And I remember when I heard this story, so many memories went through my mind of times, where I may have spoken to my mother will be, or his time when my father said go into this yet, and I said, I'll do it later, but I never ended up doing it. And I just thought to myself to Panama, this is indeed the son of Allah subhanaw taala, that the way we treat our parents is the way we our children will treat us. So putting the reward and punishment from Allah subhanaw taala. In the accurate aside, how many of us
would want to be mistreated by our children? How many of us want to see righteousness and goodness from our children? If you want to be for most people, the No, the only way you will get it is by showing righteousness towards your parents, no matter what you do after that.
And so no matter what you do, other than that, you will not have to worry if you are a person with unregistered parents, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant you to read or unregister you
as a finalist, suddenly very, very important.
And just no thinking about it. To a hadith come to mind where the prophets of Allah Holly instead of
the love of Danone, they become the prophets of Allah, honey, send them that.
The middle door agenda, we know the agenda has eight doors, right. And he said that the middle door agenda is called as well as meaning the Father, and the false alarm. And so once he said this, he said for half is it so preserving meaning so righteousness towards your parents, and almost entitled to Allah will grant you this middle door agenda, and another Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was asked about the worst of deeds.
So after mentioning shipped with a lot of time with Allah, which we mentioned, is something great, departing from aloha Eastern, and then mentioned the children of the soul.
And the third thing he mentioned, is disobedience to our parents. So now look at these things. The first thing that departs from law one is the message was shipped. So now, if a person is Muslim, and your facility, and you just make Toba, the punishment is that needs to be killed. This is under Islamic rule and legislation in Syria, we have Islamic State. Now, the second thing is if you kill another person, likewise, under the Islamic State,
if you kill another person intentionally, then the punishment is that you're to be killed as well. So now, these are punishments that are very severe in Greek in Islam. Now, not mentioning the dinner, not mentioning steps, not mentioning backbiting, all these great things that people commit departments, a lot has come down after mentioned, disobedience towards our parents. Open Learning now shows you how great the sin is in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala.
A further reflection is upon the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when he was asked about paying our parents back
to wish the public for a lot higher. So that ended up saying that if you were to carry your mother on your shoulders for height, you wouldn't have repaid her the debts are one of the pain of pregnancy that she thought. So one of those pains or cramps, or I don't know if the medical template is one of those things that she said while she was pregnant, you wouldn't have repaid that debt upon her, even if you tell your mother on your shoulders for her. So this is the responsibility that we have towards our parents solely for watch harmless as we speak to them in a smiling with a smiley face, or if we lower our voices towards them. Or if we take time out of our day just to go see how
they are doing and how they are feeling. And if we can make their lives more comfortable. For brothers and sisters, I assure you that any goodness that you do towards your parents now, Allah subhanho wa Taala will compensate it with something equal or better when you have your own children. Now moving on to
the Hadith again. He said Oh Allah, if I did this action of not seeing my family not not feeding my parents of sorry, not feeding my family until I said my parents. They please alleviated this hardship that we're in. So this man needs his last and the last time it was the other Moses at the border that was causing or blocking the team. Yet it was not enough for them to escape.
So then, the second man
he comes and he says
upon an abuse of alcohol a stolen locker locker, Allahu mechanically been to omni channel have been nasty to her unless he has some some turnouts, Mindy had done too much. He has said as a minister, he needs to judge me for athletes who have been a woman, Edina and 200 hardly have any ouabain NFC has started, what is alpha dot two are they called it, the ocean Delta, and both of them fall in love.
For the horror jets and middle Goku, they have fun, too. And Hawaii
was up doesn't have to have a lot of money
for john McAfee, but for just a second or two.
So the second man, he mentioned that there was a cousin, that she has a look at the wording that he uses, she was the most of the loveliest of mankind to me, meaning that she had this severe love and passion and desire for her, as you always wanted her. And obviously this is in a
unhallowed contexts are an error in a foreign context, meaning that he sexually desired her without, you know, the performance of marriage. So one day, out of the years, she came to me and she was in severe need of money. So I gave her 120 females and switch switch I made you agree that if I give her this money, then she will be alone with him. Meaning that, you know, they can perform illegal intercourse or illicit intercourse.
So when I came close to her, she said, Do not pierce the sphere, etc. situation, meaning that if you want to be with me, then do it properly get married. And in in one of the other marriages of the target. She said it's tough enough that fear is the fear Allah subhanaw taala. And don't use the sphere of specialists, right. So the man who became a machine, and then he left, and he left the money behind for his husband. So he says over here or law, if I did this for your state and your state alone, then get us out of this
adversity that we're in right now. So there are lots of times Allah allows the rocks to move a little bit, yet they were still unable to get out of the cave. So now this man, what did he do? This man being, you know, a youth like all of us here or unless the timing was Allah, He grabs his natural desires, He grants this naturalist. So he designed one of his cousins, and just look at the phrase that he was that she was the most beloved of mankind. that a lot of us when you're growing up, you're in high school, you have a crush on a girl, you might like her, you know, some is small, but he says she was the most beloved of mankind, meaning that she desired her husband, you know,
heavily. And it wasn't just some small push that he had.
So now, when this cousin comes to him, and she's in the utmost of need, is that yes, now is my time, you know, to get what I want. So he gives her the money and Mrs. agreement.
Now, just as he's on top of her, just as a boat, he's about to do something Haram. He fears Allah Subhana Allah and leaves this sin for his sake. And then he leaves to show us in 30 units, the money behind with her as well. So we learned from this heavy, that Allah subhanaw taala did not treat us without less than desires, we are expected to totally control our lust and desires. What is expected from us is to release those lusts and desires in a hollow manner. And that no matter what situation you may be in, it's your ability to do something Haram, you should turn away from it out of the fear of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah subhanaw taala will replace it with something better. Just
a couple of reflections on this. what was going to happen in this situation is that he was going to perform an act of intercourse, which is not permissible for him to perform. And we know from the sad realities of our times, is that people are performing this left, right and center. This is used for many reasons, whether it's the you know, it's hard to get married, or whether it's the it's just the culture that we live in, that facilitates this, you know, growing up in high school, you see that it's very common to have a girlfriend and, you know, to go has a boyfriend, and all these things are very common. So we're like, it's a poor thing to do. So let me do it as well. So there are a lot of
reasons why it happens. But just because society promotes this, it doesn't mean that it's something good to do.
And one of the things that we need to reflect upon is why does it happen in the Muslim community specifically, if you look at the Muslim community specifically, you'll see that a lot of the youth they want to get married, but they are unable to do so. A lot of the times, it's due to the ethnic background of the fiance are supposed to be different. Or it might be that the man in this relationship is not a doctor or not an engineer. Or it might be that instead of him being six foot tall, is only five foot five, in our due to such petty reason, people in the community prevented children from getting married, so that they go about doing these types of things, things that not
only bring about the displeasure of Allah subhana wa tada and the app era, which can cause abuse, societal problems, as well, and problems to themselves specifically. Now, I remember some time back,
maybe three, two and a half years ago, there was a sister, she had just recently accepted Islam. She was about 17 years old. And she was pregnant. You know, she accepted Islam, and she had a boyfriend, the boyfriend impersonator and she accepted Islam. Now, her parents had to go out of the house, once you got impregnated, and she had nowhere to go. So she was looking for a place to save for a place to stay, where she came upon, you know, a holocaust sisters one day in the park. And you know, she's like, I have no place to stay, and I have no food, can you please help me out. So this group of sisters, they helped her out. And she eventually ended up becoming Muslim. And now, when the sister
tried to get married,
you know, she started when she told me and Mary, she had this child with her, no matter where she went, the brothers,
parents, you know, they refused to get her married, or refused to marry their children or their sons to her, just because, you know, she's a corner, she had a child. And, you know, time went on a year, year and a half, two years, and she's still unable to get me to the point where she's like, I was better off having a boyfriend, we're pregnant, it gives me at least you know, he shows some sort of care. Now, I'm just left without anyone. And she eventually ended up leaving Islam. And all, you know, this story didn't happen in my community, or in poster material actually happened somewhere in the state. But the point I'm trying to derive from the story is that we need to facilitate marriage
for our children, as well, we, as parents, you know, we have a responsibility on our shoulders, that Allah, Allah bless this with children, and we need to take care of them. And just because a person's ethnicity may be different, or just because they don't make enough money as you'd like. As long as they can fulfill the necessities of your child, you should let them get married. And when someone puts their trust in Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah will bless that marriage. So this is just a small thought I had, that one of the reasons that this problem of dinner takes place in our communities, is because our parents make it difficult. So one day when we go there, and when we are, we need to
keep this in mind as well. Just as we had a difficult time getting married due to pressure, or due to the opinions of our parents, we should realize that we should not make the same mistake that our parents did.
Another reflection upon this topic, is how Allah subhanho wa Taala. Through the abandonment of something haram rewards you with something good, as we know from the Hadith, of the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
that when a person does a righteous deed,
he gets one to 700 words, depending on his intention. But if he were to commit a sin, you only get one sin for it. Now an individual who intends to do sin, but doesn't do it falls into various categories. Now, the first category is that he intended to do the same, but he was prevented from it due to a worldly reason. Meaning that, you know, he's going to a local bar down down the street, but then all of a sudden, his car breaks down and you can go to that bar. So now just because you left the sin of drinking, it doesn't mean that you will be rewarded. It was a worldly thing that prevented him from going to Russia, he will still be punished with intention, but not for the
action. Now a second category is that this man, he has a desire to drink alcohol, and he makes this intention to go to the local bar and drink. But then on his way, he remembers that Allah subhanaw taala has prohibited drinking or you meet a fellow Muslim, who indirectly reminds him that he should
So you remember this, and then he turns away. This man not only does not accumulate and sin, but rather he is rewarded for leaving after this thing, just due to his remembrance of Allah.
So now, this is a lesson for all of us. How many times are we tempted to some of the most common things right now? I mean, you know, I'm seeing downtown Toronto, and I was walking with Sheffield
this afternoon. And you know, seems every year it gets worse and worse, people are taking off more clothes
longstaff that one of the most simple things is that this
this lesson decided to give us we look at the opposite gender as possible. Now, having said that, the first look is allowed. But the second look is some say some mean that when you see someone from the opposite gender, if you want to protect yourself from falling into Zener then prevent it from the very first
routes that register on the roads, if you want to stop the work, permit it from the roots, and is one of the benefits which he actually learned from the ISO 200 data set without the probe was denied in
the data that do not come close as you know, Allah subhanaw taala did not say that you know is haram, but rather he said do not come close to the mouth, meaning that cut off all those things that will lead to Zina. Whether it be by looking whether it be by talking, whether it be by listening, whether it be indeed but a step towards it. If you cut it off at its roots, then you will prevent yourself from performing the actual act. This will be lessons that we derive from the ayah now relating this to what we were saying is that no matter how tempted you are to look at the opposite gender, you know that the more you look at this opposite gender in a unhealthy or haram manner, then
the more attraction Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will take out of your eyes towards yourself. Again, this all goes back to the way you treat yourself and others around you that when Allah Subhana Allah makes something haram gives you a halal alternative as well. And that's Hello alternative a lot of the times doesn't seem enjoyable, or doesn't seem as fun. But that is due to the fact that we took part in the Haram and the Filipinos Allah took away the enjoyment for the holidays. So when you are an age we are going to get married. If you actually want to feel the coolness of your eyes in your life, if you actually want to feel comfort in your life. One of the ways of doing this is really
against towards the opposite gender. Treat them in a manner that Allah Subhana Allah commanded us exclusively. And that when you sacrifice something for the sake of Allah, Allah subhana wa tada replaced it with something better.
Now moving on to the third part of the Hadith. And when it is Elijah Wood we'll just take some general advice and then end our discussion on the studies today.
So the purpose of a lot honey instead of says we'll call interview some of our highest status a more homogeneous job to

So this tournament,
he says that, Oh Allah. I had a group of workers whom I hired one day, and I paid all of them, except for this one man who left without taking his juice. So I invested his juice as his money grew and grew and grew. And then one day this man finally returned after a really long time, and he says, oh, slave online, give me my view, like, meaning Give me the compensation that you only give me my page and give me my wages.
So now this learning says everything you see in front of you, from the camels, and the sheep, and the cows, and even the valleys of wheat. It is all yours. So now this worker, he's upset. And he says, also the Roma do not love me Do not make fun of me. Just because I'm poor. That doesn't mean you have the slides. So then he says, I am not mocking you, nor am I just being with you. But rather everything that you see in front of you is yours.
So this man or this worker, he took every single thing and did not leave a single thing behind. So then he says, Now coming back to the his situation in case, he says, oh, if I did this, for your sake, and your sake alone, then alleviate from us this trial that we are in, and that our panels, Allah allows the body to move as the left of the cave working. Now, this last man, what was the normal deal that he did? The nobody that he did, was honestly, honestly in a time where he wasn't forced or compelled to be honest. But rather, it was out of his own free will. And it was honestly at a time where dishonesty or lack of honesty might have been more need more in according to his
desire. Now, this man, he left behind his wages, and he invested the money. So now when the worker came back, he didn't have to give him everything that he invested, he could have just given him as your wages, and he would have fulfilled his rights. But rather, due to the honesty, and goodness that this man had, he said that everything you see in front of you is your, that I invested your money, I took care of it. And this is the result of it. So everything that you see in front of you is yours. Now, one of the lessons we learned from this is honesty, not only in, you know, times that were compelled to you know, front of your face, or anything like that, but at times, where it may
even be against your own wishes and desires. And one of the lessons we learned from this is that Allah Subhana, Allah will compensate you with something great. Now you see that you will be served demand, through our application that Allah subhana wa Jalla removes the rock with that he said, Oh Allah, if I do this, if I did this for your sake, then alleviate this child from us, that we are in and with discernment, Allah subhanho wa Taala allows them to walk freely. So we see from this, the Great Wall, or the greatest virtue that honestly has, then after, you know the first time he was righteous towards his parents, the second man, he abstained from committees enough out of fear of a
loss of data. And this third man, it took the third man, due to his honesty at a time is when you wait when the guest is rooted desire, that Allah Subhana, Allah accepted his block and the lack of walking. Now, imagine yourself in such a situation, brothers and sisters, how many times are we entrusted with trust, that we have responsibilities that we have to fulfill? How many of them actually fulfill them, most of the times we won't fulfill all the responsibilities and duties that we have. But how often this is taken, the time that we do fulfillment that we do, we do it completely and wholeheartedly and actually put it into this man, like we mentioned, he could have
just given the wages to the, to his worker, but rather, he took the money. And he's like, this is a fellow human being. Let's see what I can do with his money, maybe I can gain some money for him. So he invested his money, he took care of it. This responsibility he took upon himself as this money grew. And now when the man came back, he gave an ultimatum. How many of you have this mutual concern and desire for your fellow Muslims, let alone for your workers? How many of you wish were Muslims to have Baraka in the world? How many of you wish for your pharmacist to have but again, your time How many of you wish for your pharmacist to go to gym along with you? Now, this man, just a worker, you
might have met him once or twice, but rather he had this work, but he had this good work for him, that he invested his money as he took care of it. And then when he came back, he could have kept it all but he didn't. But for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, he gave it all to him. So this is a very important lesson that we learned from this study, a goodwill for all of our brothers and sisters. When you have the ability to benefit your fellow Muslims, it is upon you to be that good Muslim, and take advantage of it. Simple things like just holding the door open. Simple things, like when you see your brother eating with his left hand, you tell him brother, it is not permissible for
you to eat with your left hand, or if he's giving you something and sometimes we tell him Oh brother, it is from the sun that for you to give and take with the simple things like this. And if we encourage one another upon religiousness and prevent one another, from things which are despicable and Haram, you will see that we can become that ideal society, or that ideal community that existed at the time of the Prophet Allah.
That's ideal society is not one that has no mistakes and no flaws, but rather is one that knows how to deal with it.
Now in ending off
This, our discussion on the study delights Allah in the next couple of minutes.
One of the great lessons we learn from this study is the concept of tawassul.
And the concept of the Western often is something very touchy. And it is often a subject, which there's a lot of confusion and misunderstanding of. So obviously, this is our ship Yes, of body specialization. So we'll leave the details to him. But the general concept of torsos, what it means is increasing the chances of your desire to be accepted. Meaning those things that we can do to increase the chances of our drives to be accepted, this is the general concept of philosophy. So under this definition of terrorism, you fall under those things which are permissible, and those things which are impermissible. So one of the ways that are permissible, and this is what we're
going to take, very briefly shortly, is by making dua to Allah subhanaw taala, through His names and attributes, Allah Subhana, Allah says, when he does, now he will be happy. That's what Allah Subhana Allah, or the lofty name, so called him by them. So now find yourself in a situation where you're asking Allah subhanho wa Taala, for something. So now, any name that Allah subhanaw taala has, that is appropriate for that situation you should use, for example, you're in a time of tribulation, you're in need of a lot of panels as mercy, you call a lot, but a rough man in our hands, or you find yourself in a situation where you're in need of work. So you call us and hammer to Allah by the
name of Zack and carry on.
So this is how you use the names of Allah subhanaw taala, as a form of tawassul, or as a form of increasing the weight of your drop to the surface. Another way is, by the way we find in the study, and that is by mentioning the good deeds that we did for the sake of Allah subhanho silence. So now, this is one of the benefits of doing good deeds. And also good deeds have many virtue students, but one of them is that we can, as you can put it, simply thanks to them, that you can put them in an account. And whenever you need, I guess you can put it as a favor from above.
You can use it by saying Oh Allah, I get such and such. For your sake sincerely, please help me in this situation, or prescribe me this or please prevent me from falling into this tribulation. So this is a way that we can use our righteous deeds as a form of torture, as we saw in this study.
A third way is by mentioning the favors of a lot of time Osama must have handled like the Allah loves to have his favorite missions to him. So lots of times. When he blesses us with love, when he blesses us with space when he blesses us with as much as we make Dr. Tomas, Panama's Allah mentioned to Allah subhanho wa Taala, how he has granted you all of these lessons. And this is something that you've learnt from social fabric itself, that you say, are often stuck is that Oh, Allah Guide us to the straight path. They're often Lavina and Anjali, that the path of those people whom you have favored and that you're mentioning the favor, there are lots of panels on his list upon these people
had on this panel was just wanted to make this simple, he would have just ordered us to save his dinner filled up on stuffy that guide us to the street pass. But Allah subhanho wa Taala loves to hear the favors that he has shown to a slave, so that we should read some of the panel data and increase
the chances of our drive to be accepted. So this is one of the ways of doing it. A fourth way of doing it, is by asking a righteous person to make to offer you this is something I wouldn't call controversial, but something that there's a lot of discussion about. And this was actually seen any time other companies or their longtime.
That during the time of default for mahalo center, when they needed rain to come down in all integers and burn land, they would go to the public from a marketing seller and asked him to make this call. So what is the prayer that you pray for? Raise it from down? So after the death of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam they didn't know what to do. They're like, who do we turn to? So there are ways to avoid the uncle of the Father
and asked him to make the decision to leave the spirit and to make sure that the rain comes down. So from this Sunday source, derive the permissibility of asking a righteous person. Another example. We see
Heidi's mentioned in Abu Dhabi from all over the world,
that the particular law Hollywood said on stage is that if you come across this man by the name of oil company, then asked him for anything that you desire for Indeed, Allah subhanaw taala answers His laws. And again, you know, this article pertinent to our subjects, that the reason why his publications were answered, was due to his righteousness towards his parents. But that again, was back to our first point, but the more relevant points is the parts come along, I'm just gonna tell him what to ask this man to make up for him, because a lot of answers is so we see this on one hand. And on the other hand, we see the likes of Abu Bakar Raja Raja angle that Heidi be writing Have you
been writing on the camera and his woodsville or his shoelaces book, he will not ask anyone else for anything, he will do everything on his own. So even when it came to us, he wouldn't ask other people to make love to him, but rather he would do it himself. So this is where the discussion lies. And no one argues over his permissibility but rather they argue over in something which is encouraged to do or someone is encouraged to do and the more current opinion seems that it is something which is encouraged to do because Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells
that if my slaves asked about me, they tell them that I mean that we don't need any intermediaries towards to Allah subhanho wa Taala and if we need anything from our last panel data, that same time and same energy that you spend in turn someone else only own you know, so and so make up for me that all of us have a kid or that all of us in my world, and that very moment you can turn the cameras on or yourself and ask him all exactly what I need. Indeed Allah subhana wa tada is close and merciful and giving towards the slaves. And with that being realizada we will end off
and in any one of us panels, Allah increases in wages, and increases in sincerity in statements and in action and intention. A whole company has a software developer Melissa synchronism
