Channel: Omar Suleiman
I'm Robin Hussain, all the Allahu Anhu was a young man when he embraced Islam. And he came later on in the life of the prophet slice Allah, but he would rise to be this person who was known as chubby Han melodica, a person who resembles the angels, not necessarily in his appearance or even his character, but specifically in his worship. And he gives this example of how that worship of Allah subhanaw taala manifested His household in the first place. By talking about how the Prophet SAW Selim actually gave out to his father.
He said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to my father. And he said to him, yeah, her slain Oh, her saying, how many gods do you worship? So he said, seven total sits on philatelists, we'll walk it and for Sama, six of them on this earth, and one of them in the heavens. So he says, basically, I've got these idols, and then I've got this one God that I deemed supreme that I can't see. So the prophesy son said, which one of them? Do you put your greatest hopes and fears in? Which one of those gods do you give the greatest consideration to? So he said, the one that's in the habits, that's the one that I have the greatest reverence for? The Prophet slicin said to him, then
why don't you worship the one that's in the heavens and leave the ones that are on the earth And subhanAllah that made sense to him. And he became a midwife, he became a Muslim, a monotheist and a Muslim. So if I'm wrong comes into Islam, around the time of Haber, so we're talking about about six years after the Prophet slice M had come to Medina, and immediately falls in love with this religion and dedicates himself to the Prophet slice alum and dedicates himself to this idea of worship of one God. And it became to the point that he gains this reputation amongst the companions of the Prophet slice and them as being a zakat as being an ascetic. And being a scholar, who's only interested in
two things. He's interested in knowledge, and he's interested in worship. So it's Elementary, Baba, that's all that you knew Ramadan, even Hussein, well, the Allahu Taala on her for, and that's the way that the Companions viewed him. Now, when almost all the allotted time on who would become the Khalifa, he would actually appoint him to a government position, he'd sent him to bussola. And the people of bussola loved him. They said that no one has ever come to us from the companions of the Prophet slice on them. That's better than this man. But I'm Ron asked to model the allow Tyler and hoods to be excused and to basically just teach the people but at the same time, he didn't want to
hold office. We also know of him that he avoided all Pfitzner he hated all types of division and disunity in the Muslim ummah, he said, I will never use this tongue against another Muslim or throw an arrow against another Muslim. So when the people come to him and ask him to do this, or do that, and Ronald the Allah outside and who would shut his door and exert himself and everybody exert himself in worship. Now, one of the things that we also see from him though, is that despite him being a great worshiper, and a great ascetic, that didn't mean that he used to come out looking like a person who was in rags and a person who had abandoned this world physically. In fact, there's a
narration that Imran will the low tide and who had come out to the people, and he was wearing this really nice robe. The robe had a special type of stitching and embroidery, it had special buttons on it. And when they asked him about it, he said it's because I heard the Prophet slice and um, say that when Allah Subhana Allah, Allah blesses a person with Nerima, Allah subhanaw taala loves and Yatra methadone airmet, to hear that I'm the to see the effect of that blessing on his servant. So detachment from this world is not that you wear raggedy clothes, it's not that you inflict poverty on yourself, it's that you attach yourself only to Allah. And in the case of Imran will be allowed
to and who, who lived with the Prophets lie Selim and attachment to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And he in fact is one of the narrators of the Hadith where the prophets lie Selim said, the best of my OMA is my generation, and then those that come after them, and then those that come after them, And subhanAllah because he was so young when he embraced Islam. He lived long after the Prophet slice. And he never stopped longing for him, especially when he remembered a bada worship with the Prophets lie Selim, one of his students, a great Tonberry and multiple fibbin Abdullah, well, the Allahu Taala annual, he said that one time he and I prayed behind it, even
though we thought about the alongside on, and after the prayer Emraan grabbed my hand and he said, This reminded me of the prayer of the Prophet slice that this took me back to that time of praying with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, of course, everyone around the Prophet slicin was in a certain state, and if Emraan distinguished himself will be Allah, and who even amongst the companions were around the prophets, why Selim? Then how was he at all other times? And you might recall a very famous narration of hamdulillah will the Allahu Anhu going to have a bucket and then a blue bucket and humble and may Allah be pleased with them going to the Prophet slice Allah
and complaining that maybe they were hypocrites. Why? Because they couldn't maintain that same level of victory to that same level of remembrance of Allah, that same state of mind and state of heart, when they were with the Prophet, slice alum, and then with their families after they left the presence of the Prophet, slice Allah, and one of the prophets lie, some say to them, he said, listen, first of all, so I tell us that it's you know, you have to have a time for this and a time for that. As long as you're not sinful when you're away from the Prophet slice of them, it's understandable that you're not going to be able to maintain the same state of heart and mind. In the
absence of the messenger SallAllahu Sallam that you had when you're sitting in his hammock is when you're with the Prophets lie Selim. And the prophets lie. Some said to them, that if you were to maintain the same state, in my absence that you do in my presence, the angels would shake your hands in the streets. How does this apply to and we'll handle the Alon Emraan actually aspired to be in that state. Emraan actually aspire to be in the same way that he was with the Prophets lie Selim, even when the prophets lie some had already passed away. And some time passed, where am Ronald the law Tada and who became ill for an extended period of time. And he took inspiration from the story
of a human body, his salaam prolonged sickness, and worship and patients. And then one day, his student and multiple visits him and he sees him very sad. So he says to him, what's wrong? He says that something was happening with me. And Allah subhanaw taala took that blessing away from me. He said, What is it? He said, that for an extended period of time, the angels started to come to me that I would come to my house and they would greet me at my door. And then they would even come to me when I would lay in bed and they would greet me at the head side of my bed. So the angels silly Mahalia, they were giving salam to me, and I was giving salam to them as well. And this was
happening from every directions. Hello, what a blessing from Allah subhanaw to add it to only happen to this one companion, where the angels are saying salaam to him, and he's saying salaam to them, as well, he said, but it stopped after I did LK which is a medical procedure, that the profit slice I'm generally disliked. So he said, when I did LK, the angels stopped coming to me. So he was very sad about that. Well, people have said, I told him that inshallah they'll come back to you. And subhanAllah sometime after that Emraan will the Allahu Taala and who was enjoy, and he's such a Matata, fibbin Abdullah. He said Al Hamdulillah they came back to me but don't tell anyone of this
until after I die. I don't want anyone to know of this blessing that Allah subhanaw taala has given to me until after I pass away, and Subhanallah it stayed that way until he passed away. It's called the Allahu taala. I know. And there's something very special about this that the prophets lie Selim was not just giving a random example. If you are in a state of wicked, you are in the presence of angels, whether that's in a gathering or whether that is as an individual. And when this person I'm rondalee, Allah Tada and who is able to maintain that consistent remembrance of Allah? Then Allah subhanaw taala blessed him with the consistent presence of the angels. And for us, the more we
remember Allah, the more the angels are going to be present with us.
