00:01:57--> 00:02:02

from Quantum rasulillah Hina quantum law he wants to go

00:02:04--> 00:02:05

00:02:07--> 00:02:07


00:02:17--> 00:02:18

your fall for

00:02:25--> 00:03:06

me mean when people too, didn't want subpoena Allahumma salli wa send him about it and it called Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, why not he will be He will send them to semen kathira their brothers and sisters I started off with the recitation of sort of two chumps. The reason being is that this surah is very special in many ways, and I can't go through a full translation of it. But Allah subhanho wa Taala swears by many things he swears by the sun he swears by the moon he swears by the stars he swears by the by the ground he the earth the heavens the skies, Allah subhanaw taala swears by many things, and then a loss of Hannah hoods Allah swears by the knifes the self. One I've

00:03:06--> 00:03:07

seen one so well.

00:03:08--> 00:03:53

And a lot as a judge says for Alabama hafele, Georgia, Howard tafawa, Allah subhanaw taala inspired the self, with its sense of good and its sense of evil, the ability to distinguish between right and wrong, all to come to one point and I want you to think about this that he might have done a whole lot in his book on an exam on oaths. A las pantallas swears by many things in the world. And he must have been claimed Rahim Allah He says when Allah Subhana, which Allah swears, it's to emphasize the importance of what's coming next. And a loss of Haida hoods Allah has never taken more oats in any other surah in the Quran, as he has in this short surah also come to one point by the F the Hammonds

00:03:54--> 00:03:56

wakad haba mandus

00:03:57--> 00:04:36

Verily, he has succeeded, who has purified herself and he has failed, who has corrupted it and and dirtied his soul corrupted, the pure soul that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave to him. And this is very beautiful, because Allah Subhana which Allah is showing us the power of the individual, that nothing at the end of the day is more important than than correcting and perfecting yourself. And then Allah subhanaw taala you might be wondering, how does this relate to those Sahaba and following the stars of Islam, because Allah subhanaw taala all of a sudden in the Sora transitions to who can set the mood to be tough,

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

either embarrassed or her verily mood, Allah subhana wa tada talks about their failure, their arrogance, the way that they rejected their Prophet, the way that they rejected a simple commands not to kill the she camel, but as a group of people. They all suffered from the disease of pride, meaning what they failed to purify themselves.

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

And because they fail to purify themselves as a society, they became a transgressing nation, a corrupt people. And at the end of the day, all they earned was the destruction of a loss upon which Allah upon them, some of them will facility they pointed out here, notice that Allah Subhana Allah did not talk about an individual who transgress, you know, a lot of agenda was swearing by the importance of the individual purifying his soul, or else, barely, he would fail and he would become a loser. But a loss of hindsight did not then give us the example of our own. Or he didn't give us the example of a loss of Hannah Montana did not give us the example of our own Allah Subhana. Allah

00:05:41--> 00:06:24

gave us the example of a group of people. Why because when individuals failed to purify themselves, they become a transgressing society. And their end result is misery and failure in every sense of the word, they would not achieve success in this dunya nor the earth hero, they all lose. When we look at the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The first thing we need to understand about them is that they all had their own journey to Allah subhanho wa Taala in a very unique way. They all had their circumstances. So pound a lot, you find some of them were rich, were tested with money. Some of them were tested with poverty. Some of them were tested with a high

00:06:24--> 00:07:04

social status before Islam, and some of them were tested with being slaves. Some of them were tested with frequent exposure to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and some of them never even met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they all had an extremely unique journey to Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's something that's beautiful for us. Because when we look at the examples of the companions, we can find our story obviously magnified in some way, shape, or form. In one of them. You might read about the companions and you might have a particular affinity to one of them, you might be able to relate particularly to one of them, because his story or her story reminds you of

00:07:04--> 00:07:22

your story. If there's someone who is suffering for example, with parents, who are hindering them from from pursuing a loss of Hannah hoods add on the path of a loss of I know it's either you will find Sahaba that were tied up, you will find Sahaba that were tortured by their parents, you will find Sahaba that had

00:07:24--> 00:08:02

a well, as loud as I was speaking, you guys can hear me, you will find Sahaba who are rejected by their spouses, you will find Sahaba that were rejected by their children, you will find something in everyone. And Subhanallah this is a this is a law's gift to us, as Allah subhanaw taala and bolded the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and the companions in their hardest times, with the stories of the prophets that came before Allah subhanho wa Taala emboldens us with the stories of the prophets and the stories of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam, and a seller for sila and the pious predecessors that followed afterwards. Allah has always said it gives us

00:08:02--> 00:08:26

strength through them, we look to them and we understand we can achieve success as individuals that that truly, you know, we have no ceiling, we only placed those ceilings on ourselves. The sky is our only limits. And Pamela, yesterday, we were talking about, you know, all of the Messiah, we're talking about the importance of intention and things of that sort. And I'm gonna put this down because I'm gonna spill it.

00:08:28--> 00:08:42

And we were talking about the intentions that we have to have in the sincerity mathema hemo love, he was asked the beautiful question. He was asked what is the distance between us and the outbursts of a loss of I know, it's out of the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:08:43--> 00:08:48

And he said, a sincere do from a pure heart. That's it.

00:08:49--> 00:09:33

A sincere from a pure heart. And that's something really to think about that we all really need to think deeply about. When we look at the companions, they show us potential the amount of a mala, he also said you can't make excuses for your circumstances anymore. He has a very beautiful page in his beautiful book and fell out useful sayings where he draws many analogies where he talks about the different journeys that people have. And he said, look up the uncle of the prophets all along, it was son of a noble man, drowned in seas of evil, while some man and Pharisees, whose father was the head of the Zoroastrian Medusa faith, was safe on the coast came from Persia traveled the entire

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

world to find those little muscle a lot more it was sell them and find guidance, whereas other pilot died in disbelief, despite his nephew being the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually didn't move Iran, as the Arab who was supposedly the most noble of the arrows preceded all of the Arabs in misguidance and being led astray, whereas sohaib are roaming. So hey, the Roman slave proceeded all of the Arabs and the non Arabs in

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

guidance in LA Dyer. I want to know how Pablo de la and who used to say about so hey Rumi, this man that came in the caravan of the Romans, he you know, he doesn't he's not going to appreciate the beauty of the poor and the way that the Arab will appreciate it, and the way that the poet's will understand it, but so he comes in the caravan of the Romans. And on top of the alarm, I noticed that this man loved the loss of paneling to add a so much snow layer favilla lemmya asleep. Even if he didn't fear Allah subhanaw taala he still wouldn't disobeyed him. He developed a love for a loss of Hannah Montana that was unparalleled. And he said Abuja about hakam his name was the father of

00:10:40--> 00:11:28

wisdom, became deaf to the call of La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah even though before Islam, he was known as a wise nobleman, but whenever he heard the call of La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, He fell deaf, some look monomial archelon there are deaf, dumb and blind, they don't think they don't come back to Allah subhanaw taala because of a self imposed deafness, a self imposed deafness, whereas Beloved, well the Allahu taala and the slave who never even met the Prophet sallallahu it was Southern before he became Muslim was calling as haddaway La ilaha illallah wa la ilaha illAllah eyeshadow anna Muhammadan rasul Allah, to Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah Subhana Allah

00:11:29--> 00:12:12

and then the joshy was calling all the way from Abyssinia despite being the head of his Christian faith, calling to Allah subhanho wa Taala labianca lahoma back here I am Here I am alive. I'm answering your call. Oh Allah Subhana Allah Think about that. Basically, what at the moment that'll tell you about him a lot showing us is that it's not about your circumstances, it's about you. The Companions prove that to us more than anything else. They prove that to us. And he said, look at the law of no vagueness at all. You know, we're talking about powerful speeches and how it's all about your heart in your disposition. Can you imagine I would love and obey Him saloon for nine years,

00:12:13--> 00:12:21

prayed behind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wasn't listening to the Torah. of chef, you know, Chef massage Tallahassee.

00:12:22--> 00:12:26

He was listening to the era of none other than the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah. He was

00:12:27--> 00:12:41

the one who when he used to read, his test would boil like a pot Subhana Allah like, like a teapot would boil the prophets I send them when would you know would boil because of how much tears he said whenever he read them.

00:12:42--> 00:13:02

And who would recite more beautifully than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was listening to his law for nine years praying behind him. He wasn't listening to a whole tuba by Mufti mink or by Sheikh Abdullah Hakim, Quaker, our other Messiah. He was listening to the buzz of the prophets Allah allowed he was alone.

00:13:03--> 00:13:22

He wasn't just witnessing the character of you know, of good Muslims around him. He was witnessing the character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam who Allah Subhana Allah said we're in luck, Allah Allah Hello, can you on an exalted standard of character, yet he still died in disbelief?

00:13:23--> 00:14:03

the hypocrisy of Abdullah urban saloon was the hypocrisy of kufr of disbelief, despite those nine years, whereas if they'll tell you about him, Allah says, Look at Masada. He never even met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but he still believed in him. You see the difference here dear brothers and sisters. These companions show us that no matter what our circumstances are, we have no room to fail. We have no excuse to fail. We have no reason to feel sorry for ourselves and say I'm not capable. You know Allah subhanaw taala put that person you know he Mashallah he understands Arabic. That's why

00:14:04--> 00:14:25

that's why he's able to do so good. No, no, no, no. Can't make that excuse. In fact, I'll share with you a story of someone that's that we would not consider from the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Nevertheless, he met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he still died unbelief.

00:14:26--> 00:14:31

I'm gonna say that again. Someone who met the prophets lie Selim while he was alive.

00:14:32--> 00:14:59

But he never became a Muslim. But he still died upon belief. Some of you are wondering, okay, this is strange. This is going to be obsolete the issue here? No. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was once asked by Surrey the Mosaic law the allowed tide animals are either gonna say this from the National University in the 10. Promise paradise. So the Arizona law you know my father, they are honorable. No fake.

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

You know him

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

and he's dead.

00:15:04--> 00:15:49

Is he really going to be in the Hellfire you know what what happens to him and who has a diploma who failed. He's a man who the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew before the prophets will allow it to them received revelation. And they did no amarinder no fail. Even whenever shidduch was widespread before the profits license, even made the call tonight La La Muhammad Rasul Allah, he was from the few individuals who said there is no way that all of these idols are our gods. It just doesn't make sense. Not only that, but he used to speak out against the idols. And he was the nephew of Al hubub, the father of the low tide, and he was his nephew. And he knew that there is no way

00:15:49--> 00:16:25

that these idols were gods. And you know, it was so lovely that I'm reflected, he said, you know what I remember one time I was sitting in a gathering was a did not enough aid. And they were serving meat and the profit slice, I've never ate meat that was slaughtered in the name of the idols. So the prophets I send them past and then it came to say they've nominated an affair, and he started to speak to them and he used and he started to say to them, a loss of Hydra one to Allah gives you these animals. A loss of hydrants Adam provides for you from the skies, a loss of hydrants Allah provides for you all of these means, and then you slaughter in the name of other than our last

00:16:25--> 00:16:26


00:16:28--> 00:16:50

speaking out against their practices, used to go to the carrabba apartments on the Allahu taala. And he says that he used to put his back to the cabinet. And he used to say, no one of you is upon the religion of Ibrahim alayhis salaam except for me, what you are doing is not the religion of Ibrahim alayhis. Salaam. I don't know what it is. But it's not this.

00:16:51--> 00:17:27

And he used to make it smart with the alarm. I heard his there. I'm loving the alarm. He also narrates this from his father, he used to make a job. And he used to say Allahu malo and the Alamo a Ulu in a coma only I knew which path was most pleasing to you. I would worship you according to that path. When I can, Nina Anna, but I don't know a lot. I don't know what it is. And he made sujood. And he cried. And he said he didn't even have a leak. Look at that sincerity. Oh, Allah just guide me to that which is pleasing to you.

00:17:28--> 00:18:10

And eventually he is oppressed and beaten by his uncle so much, that he leaves the huddle. And he goes looking for guidance around the world, like some of his companions did just a few people did, looking to Christianity looking to do Daisy, I'm trying to find guidance trying to find out Hey, he's not finding it. And you know what else he used to do? When Eliza just says when he doesn't know who that is? He likes me a lot. And when the young girl that was buried alive, the disgusting practice of the Arabs when they used to bury their daughters alive, and a loss of patents on a set in the very early revelations. Whenever that young girl speaks and says, For what reason was I

00:18:10--> 00:18:32

killed? Why was I murder? Before that I was even revealed. They did not know nefarious to go to the places where the ditches on the outskirts of Mecca where they would bury their daughters and say, don't do that. Give her to me. I'll take her and would raise these girls until they would reach the age of marriage and then marry them off.

00:18:34--> 00:18:51

panela No, no, no nothing. No, he didn't meet the prophets. I said I'm after he received why. And as he's traveling the world, and he finally hears that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has come out from the place that he left on his way back to Mecca he dies.

00:18:53--> 00:19:25

So he never got to see the Prophet sighs and I'm in c'est la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah. Can you imagine that? Subhan Allah, this man's lifelong journey, you might think to yourself, wow, that's a tragic ending, right? So now the thought is, you know the law and we know what he went through traveling the entire world, all of those years and how he must have felt when he saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they never got to have that moment, but his son was the one of the first to become Muslim. So his son is saying to the prophets, why Selim yada so the law you know, my dad,

00:19:27--> 00:19:28

you know, what is his situation?

00:19:29--> 00:19:38

And also la sala la he was Selim said, I have seen on the day of judgment that the nations will stand behind their profits.

00:19:40--> 00:19:48

Each nation will stand behind the Prophet that was sent to them and how many prophets were there? someone other than the Messiah how many prophets were there sent to mankind?

00:19:49--> 00:19:50

Anyone know

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

124,000 profits MBA amongst them 315, Ruslan messengers and the authentic identity

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

meant by Abu Dhabi.

00:20:03--> 00:20:29

Out of 124,000 profits each of them will be standing on the Day of Judgment. The prophets lie Selim said some of them will have large nations behind them and particularly morsani his Salah Rasulullah Sai Solomon, he sees the nation of Musashi Salaam, he would think it's his nation then he would see his oma come forward and we asked Allah subhanaw taala to make us amongst them, Lama amin, his oma come forward and they would dwarf the nation of masala is salah

00:20:30--> 00:20:59

and the Prophet slicin. I've said some prophets though will stand with very few followers, some with seven some with 10 some with to some with one can you imagine a prophet who spent his entire life in Darwin has one person and also lost life. And I've said some prophets will stand with no one behind them. You know what the prophets I send them said. And I have seen your father, Zaid, if normative and innovative standing as a nation on his own

00:21:01--> 00:21:02

Subhana Allah.

00:21:03--> 00:21:05

He's gonna be all by himself on the day of judgment

00:21:07--> 00:21:48

as a nation as oma of his own, you know why it was here? It was already here what a loss of data reveals to us of the Quran. And the Sunnah is that which agrees with our fifth already, that which agrees with our natural behavior already, what is already inside of us. The problem is, is that sometimes we don't choose to honor that fifth one. And so Paula, we look at the companions. And they were truthful with the last kind of hoods. And that's the main thing about them, the test of the law or the law, and you imagine what below the law, Tyler and he went through when he was tortured in the desert. And I want you to think about this. Sometimes we really do not understand this. I mean,

00:21:49--> 00:21:55

I know in America we have Fox News. Okay, that's the primary Islamophobic network.

00:21:56--> 00:22:00

Below the allowed Thailand who became Muslim because of Islamophobia.

00:22:01--> 00:22:15

Think about it. If someone walked into your husband and said, I want to become Muslim today, and you say Why? Well, I was watching Fox News and I was listening to rush limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly and these guys, Sean Hannity and I decided that this is the truth. Like what

00:22:16--> 00:22:50

are you okay? You want to sit down for a minute and let's talk about this. Are you Are you mocking us, below the allow and who decided to become Muslim, because he heard his masters speaking about the province lies on them in a derogatory way, but gathered from what was said I hadn't had, that there is only one God. That was enough for a bit out of the allotted time, to be dragged into the desert, dehydrated, lush, as if circumstances were not already miserable, almost killed, have a stone placed on top of him

00:22:51--> 00:23:04

and forced almost to the brink of death, only saying I hadn't had one one and nominative Ababa they allowed to and who later on and he used to call bilateral the allow our master who was read by our master

00:23:05--> 00:23:46

b that is our master freed by our master. I'll go back into some detail about the allowance add on. And he's sitting with Alibaba pin urato. The allow another slave who was tortured before Islam, who used to have his master poor burning hot coals on his back, burn the skin off of his back completely to the point that when kebab showed his back to America, Pablo de la I know, Omar saw this skinless back and said, What is this? What happened to you? And he told him about how his master used to take the skin off of his back, burning coal on his back until the profits licen a major against her and his master took the coal and burned herself.

00:23:47--> 00:23:50

Now below the law and what's your story

00:23:51--> 00:24:18

below? Why is it that when you were being tortured, the only thing you were saying was I had one I had one one? Why didn't you say yada? yada Haim allama Jordan, if you will see, but he was a lovely hyena man. Why didn't you call upon Allah? subhanaw taala with his other names? Why didn't you say anything other than one? And B Natalie allowed herself to remember Bob? Yeah, amirul momineen. If I knew anything other than one, I would have said it.

00:24:19--> 00:24:21

I didn't know anything else about Allah.

00:24:22--> 00:24:24

I knew nothing else about Allah.

00:24:25--> 00:24:31

But look what he was willing to go through the test and blah, blah, blah. They put their lives on the line.

00:24:32--> 00:24:49

I will back in a Sunday. The allow animal is tied to the story. Why? Because of abeka on the allow, I know comes on the early days and he has a Sunday and he's the truthful person. And when I said I'm telling him Yeah, but I'm a messenger. Rebecca says Are you sure?

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

He doesn't say to him, Are you sure? Can you can you split the moon for me? Can you you know make my camel flip over and do some jumping jacks or something like that.

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

doesn't say anything like that to the messenger slice Allah. He says, I believe you.

00:25:05--> 00:25:32

Not only did he say I believe you now let's get back to what we were doing as friends, I will back in on the allowed, who goes back goes out and in one week brings nine of the greatest converts ever to Islam. Five of them from the time promised paradise goes and does Darwin he spends with his money, he goes to the slaves that are being oppressing Lalalalala and he gives his money freely so that they can come out of that look at these companions.

00:25:33--> 00:25:51

Bill alum cadabra putting their lives on the line. Rebecca is putting his money on the line. And Eliza just says j dubya. Monica and fusi come strive with your wealth and with yourself. And through each other. They are gaining leverage in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Can you imagine that

00:25:52--> 00:26:23

bill and Habiba from the good deeds of Abu Bakar so the color of the Allahu taala The point is, is that you cannot say that they were not truthful, and their belief. They were truthful to Allah soprano to Allah, and they all had their separate journey. And you know what your brothers and sisters? What's special about the companions? You know, we always talk about halal and haram. Chef is this Haram. You know, a lot of times when people say chef, is this haram? I'm like, if I tell you it's how long are you going to stop doing it? No, well Don't ask.

00:26:24--> 00:26:50

You're not interested in knowing. It's called photoshopping, right in our day and age. It's how can I always do less? we you know, we take baths in the doubtful matters. You know, a shovel hands, we will stay in that gray area proudly. You know, and just say Hey, I heard a chef says hello. I don't know who that chef was. But he said it's hard. You know, I found them online. And he lives in some islands in Trinidad.

00:26:53--> 00:27:08

Now I've never heard that one before. But he lives somewhere else and he you know I've never heard of him. I don't know what's his name? I think his name is Abdullah it'd been something okay. you've narrowed it down to about 300,000 other people shifts. Who is he? Where did he study I don't know. But he said it's

00:27:09--> 00:27:10

just deal with it.

00:27:11--> 00:27:48

Tell Allah tala tala, I want to make it easy. I want and you know what, yes. You know a lot of the prophets I'm saying make things easy, not difficult. Best you know, Allah tuna Pharaoh, give glad tidings don't make people despair. That doesn't mean you change the deen. That means you deliver the deen in a way that people can digest it at a gradual pace. But you don't lower the standard because you can't meet it. It gives you hope as to how you can reach that standard. That's what the prophets lysozyme gave us he didn't want us to be those people that are always like, you know, is it really? Are you sure it's How is it? mcru? You know, there's a loss of hydrants. Allah only hate it.

00:27:49--> 00:27:55

Is it just Sunnah. Can you imagine I will back here on Earth man coming to the prophets lifetime and saying, Hey, is that just sooner?

00:27:57--> 00:28:35

Or is this fuddled? on us? Is this really hot? Or is it just okay? You know, it's a crew. Can you imagine the Sahaba saying that to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? No, because they had a difference. They had a different goal. Their goal is not just to get by as Muslims, their goal was to always be the best that they could be. And so they always wanted to do more and more and more and more. And so the prophets I send them didn't have to tell them that you know, hey, that's Haram. And I told you, why are you still doing that? The prophets I said them had to tell them calm down. You're going too fast. You're gonna burn out? Can you and I want you to imagine this. How many of

00:28:35--> 00:28:37

00:29:24--> 00:29:27

in Trinidad, you don't have people that are as tall as me. Apparently.

00:29:28--> 00:29:37

Anyone who has kids is gonna, you know, be a little concerned. It's probably even as parents sometimes we forget where we were as children. You want me to just hold it?

00:29:40--> 00:29:43

Six inches six inches away from Can we play an app?

00:29:44--> 00:30:00

As a break right now? Okay. Anyone who has children will not be completely satisfied, right? You come and a lot of times I know as as an Imam. And you can ask any of the Imams. You have parents that come with their kids and say, shed. My son is terrible. He doesn't

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

He's lazy, right? He's doing this, he's doing that, can you correct him? Can you give him the Holy Spirit? Can you touch them on the head? You know, and all of a sudden inshallah he's gonna become religious Can you give him a pill? You know, what can you eat? What can we do? You know, it's like you want me to correct 20 years of bad parenting, sometimes I'm not. I'm being honest. Sometimes it's really just bad parenting. And you want me to correct it with a

00:30:23--> 00:30:34

you know, just the touch, shift, make it better, make it better, make it better make it better. But even you know, people somehow who have high standards for their kids, a lot of times they're not going to be completely satisfied.

00:30:35--> 00:30:38

Can you imagine I'm gonna also the allowance,

00:30:39--> 00:30:48

complains to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam about his son, our Beloved Muhammad. You know what his complaint is? My son prays too much at night.

00:30:49--> 00:30:53

He fasts every single day. And he reads too much for me.

00:30:55--> 00:30:58

How many of you would love to be able to complain about your kids that way? Raise your hand.

00:31:00--> 00:31:19

My son reads too much. Praise too much and fast too much. Yeah, I'd also love to deal with him right make him better. But also love him has to take up the love Muhammad and also the allow anyone say how much for Andy Reid. You know how much Karani was reading. He was finishing the entire quarter and every single day.

00:31:20--> 00:32:03

He was finishing a hotma every single day. And the prophets lie Selim tells him to finish it in one week. He says he also like can do more. The prophets I send them said fine three days yada. So like and do more. He says no, just do three days. Now weren't there people from the Sahaba that we know used to read the full ad more than once within three days. Yes. But the prophet sighs um, didn't want them to burn out. He knew his level. He knew his capability. He knew he was going too fast. Read it once every three days. So dear brothers and sisters, those of you who are who read the ad once every day, just retentions a day from now on. Okay, just tengiz so it also tells them just $10

00:32:03--> 00:32:30

a day. How much do you fast I fast every single day. The prophets lie Selim told him to fast the three days the three middle days of every month at 13 1415 jasola. I can do more. The prophets lie Selim said find fast Mondays and Thursdays Yato sola, I can do more the prophets lie Selim says then the best fasting is the best thing of that war daddy his Salah where he would fast one day and he would break his fast the next day. Yes, all I can do more. No, that's enough.

00:32:31--> 00:32:39

So those of you that fast everyday Mashallah. The righteous people of Trinidad. You can start breaking your fast one day and fasting the other day.

00:32:40--> 00:32:44

How much do you pray at night? He would pray the entire night.

00:32:45--> 00:33:00

The prophets lie Selim told him the best pm the best prayer at night is the one who sleeps the first two thirds of the night. wakes up or the first half of the night wakes up for the last third of the night and sleeps the last sixth of the night.

00:33:01--> 00:33:04

Yara so I can do more. That's enough.

00:33:05--> 00:33:06

Just do that much pm.

00:33:08--> 00:33:32

And also boss I sent him gave him some advice by the way. So don't don't be like a person. When he gets old. It would be sad. Can a Acoma lane photog. He used to prefer Yama lead, but then he stopped meaning he burned out. You're doing too much. That's how this habit work. Now we know the story of Apple back in a study called the allowance add on him when he went when Bob used to, you know said that I want to challenge Apple, but kudos to the whole of the Alon.

00:33:33--> 00:33:39

And that's the beauty of the Sahaba. They didn't look to others and say oh, that's okay. He's a shear.

00:33:40--> 00:33:45

They were inspired by one another. They envied one another in a good way. They

00:33:46--> 00:34:25

do nothing. They used to rush for the good deeds. They used to compete with one another for good deeds. So I'm going to know how bla bla bla and one says, Look, I'm able to be everyone else but I can't be double back here. And he said one day I decided today I'm going to be a robot gonna be allowed to animal. So what did he do? He came to the profit slice setup with half of everything that he owns. Said jasola Here it is. For the sake of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what did you leave for your family or Amato? I left half of everything I own Mashallah, I sent Yama You've done well are you done good all of us can look at our motto DLR anyone say that was

00:34:25--> 00:34:45

a great move half of everything you own then comes up Rebecca said the holiday allow enrollment thought he won and I will back it up the allow I know didn't even know what Alma did. It's not like Rebecca said oh yeah, fine. I'm gonna give everything I own. I will back in came organically and gave everything to the profits lies lm

00:34:46--> 00:35:00

muscle loss Iceland's or whatever you love for your family. A lot of his messengers on the law audio seller, Abubakar are they allowed to either and who gave it all right. And Subhanallah a lot of times we think well that means we should all give it all you know that. If you

00:35:00--> 00:35:28

Study the seed of the prophets I seldom, he didn't allow any other Sahabi. To do that. No companion was allowed to do that except for aboubaker. Cabin nomadic or the allow anyone the famous story of his Toba of his repentance, where he was so happy and he was one of the richest men in Medina. He was so happy when Allah accepted his repentance that cared about the law and who gave everything He even took off the throne that he was wearing and gave it to the one that gave him the news that Allah accepted your repentance.

00:35:29--> 00:35:38

And he comes to the province I sent him and says, I'm giving all of my wealth for the sake of Allah. The prophets lie Selim says, I'm sick I like about the man hold on to some of your wealth.

00:35:39--> 00:35:47

And Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is telling him Don't give it all capital, the alone and he was saying, fine, I'll keep some of what came from the spoils of war.

00:35:49--> 00:36:02

But everything else is for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala the prophets lie some didn't let him give it all. Likewise of openhab when Allah subhanho its Allah revealed lentinan will be more happy

00:36:04--> 00:36:26

to have born you will not achieve true righteousness or the reward of righteousness being an agenda until you spend from that which you love. about Paul had the gardens of Badal hat, which today if you go to Medina, the prophets I said I'm used to relax in that garden. People used to enjoy that garden, right behind the masjid. They're actually right in front of the messages.

00:36:27--> 00:36:33

You know, they used to relax in that beautiful garden. It was his best garden, palm trees, springs everything.

00:36:34--> 00:36:41

And I thought I heard that verse. And he says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he comes to me and he says, I thought of had

00:36:42--> 00:36:50

a bone to expand from that what you love, yada sola here is Badal hat for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala I'm giving the entire garden away.

00:36:51--> 00:36:52

You know what the prophets lie Selim says.

00:36:56--> 00:36:59

I think you should save it for your family members for your kid.

00:37:01--> 00:37:17

And his intention was still solid. He had it inside of him. I want to give it all but the Prophet slicin told him no. Why I will back here what the law and why was apobec and allowed to give it all because the prophets lie some nose, I will back it will come and give it all and he's not gonna go home and go, Oh my god, what have I done?

00:37:19--> 00:37:23

And his wife is not gonna say to him What? You gave it all away.

00:37:24--> 00:37:30

No abubaker will give it all then he'll go and he'll work in the market until he earns enough to give again.

00:37:32--> 00:38:09

That was the attitude of apobec. It will be allowed to Admiral kanessa Belconnen equally high as ariola. And who says about him that if you thought about good, I will back out on the low end already did it when you have a good idea I will record all the law and who already superseded all of the Sahaba and doing it and so on whatever the law says later on, when I will back in as halifa Amaro de la Daniel went to the outskirts of Medina where there was some elder people that weren't being served that couldn't be tended to. And so he goes and he does this secretly for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. The first door he knocks on on the outskirts of Medina, the old woman says

00:38:09--> 00:38:10

someone has already come.

00:38:12--> 00:38:54

It says who's already come here. someone's already been here. And so on matter the law I know demands to know and she's not giving away the identity or model the law I know goes and hides behind your house, waits to see who it is. And here comes the halifa the first nonprofit Khalifa Abu Bakr Siddiq are they allowed to add on the first non infallible prophet not infallible Khalifa. Abu Bakr, Siddiq kado the allowance with everything on his plates from people leaving Islam, people withholding there's a cap, you know, people celebrating the death of the Prophet slice Allah coming out to these old elderly people on the sides to serve them.

00:38:55--> 00:39:22

And Amaro the Alon who cries and he says, I have never you know, and he used to say look at the abdomen john, I'm embarrassed that you have exhausted everyone that comes after you Oh bucket. And he said by a lot. I've never taken a path of good except that I found a double bucket or the allow and already traveled it. That's how they were. I want to do more I want to do more and so the poor Sahaba come to the Prophet slice alum and they say Allah Subhan Allah the rich companions have taken all of the

00:39:24--> 00:39:44

licenses Why? They said because they pray like we pray they fast like we fast You know, they do all that a bad that like we do, but they're able to give charity and we're not. And the prophets lie Selim says hasn't Allah subhanaw taala given you something to give sadaqa to give charity with every sapan Allah is a charity everyone say Subhana Allah, every

00:39:46--> 00:39:47

say Subhana Allah

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

every Alhamdulillah is a subtle casier hamdulillah every Allahu Akbar is a sadhaka say Allahu Akbar every La ilaha illallah wa is a satirical c'est la Ilaha

00:40:00--> 00:40:14

Allah. And so these companions were happy now. They got their way. Then they come back to the prophets like them complaining, you know what their complaint was? yada so a lot the rich Sahaba found out about what you gave to us and now they're doing that too.

00:40:16--> 00:40:56

It's not fair. How come they get to give solokha and now they get to do tests beer and tally like we do. And also last night he set up says that he can * Voila. That is the bounty of Allah subhanho to Allah, Allah subhanaw taala tests whom He wills for it, and the victory is for the believers for those who are pious soprano Allah that is the fact that is the father of Allah subhanho wa Taala UT human ye sha Allah subhanaw taala gives it to him he rose, while law has been faultless. And Allah subhanaw taala is the is the Almighty and bestower of bounties. That's a gift. Everything these people looked at, they thought to themselves, how can I use it for the sake of Allah Subhana hoods

00:40:56--> 00:41:01

Allah. In fact, even when we look at the conquest of Persia,

00:41:02--> 00:41:19

when Allah Subhana, which Allah gave the believers victory against kissflow and kissflow had an amazing palace. You know, this is the problem when you read a Hadith, and you don't know context, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that you will open the White House

00:41:20--> 00:41:59

and basil Albion and some people now they look at this hadith and CC the prophets. I said, I'm told us 1400 years ago, we're gonna conquer the White House. The White House that the prophets lies, and I was talking about was the White House of kisara, the emperor of Persia, who had a huge white palace, and the Muslims, when they entered into the palace of kisaan, after suffering at the hands of the Persians, when they entered into the house of kisser the Palace of kisara. And they saw this wealth that they've never seen before in their lives. And they were excited and they were happy. They carried it, and they were pleased, not because they're like Alright, now we're gonna get to put

00:41:59--> 00:42:05

all this stuff in the pockets, you know, they weren't going through kissless jewelry boxes and looking around the side looking right now.

00:42:06--> 00:42:39

They weren't doing any of that. They carried this wealth, they brought this back to the halifa pleased that they were able to give this for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. They weren't even shaken by it. They weren't even affected by it. And so sad. Are they allowed to not be worthless when he prayed in the palace of kisser? And then he recited the verses? Come takumin Jannat. And what was the rule in warm apartment? Kareem? Whenever? When can we have Hakeem karateka our Athena Coleman,

00:42:40--> 00:42:56

back Atari. He was a man or woman can have one buddy. I lost some hands out of talks about their own and his people, how many palaces? How many gardens? How many rivers did they leave behind? How much did they leave behind in this world care that he co

00:42:57--> 00:43:26

authored in and just like that, we snatched it. And we allowed another group of people to take in the heavens nor the earth shed a tear for them. And this is a very beautiful Tafseer from a bit above the law. No, I don't have time to go into it. Just read what it says about this ayah and I really don't have any time to go into it. In fact, I don't have time to finish my talk. But they did not leave behind any meaningful legacy. These palaces went to waste everything that Allah gave to them went to waste.

00:43:28--> 00:43:31

And they were not from those who are granted respect and the

00:43:32--> 00:44:08

dear brothers and sisters, that's who the Sahaba were. They looked at everything and thought What can I do with this to please Allah subhanho wa Taala you know when someone comes and says what is the most pleasing due to a loss of Hana? What's Allah? What can I do? Give me some advice to please Allah subhana wa tada what is the best thing to be doing? What is the best situation? And we look the prophets. I said, I'm giving different answers to different people. But the true answer is that if you really want to please the last panel and tada then make sure that you are where Allah subhanaw taala wants you to be when Allah wants you to be there doing what Allah wants you to be

00:44:08--> 00:44:09


00:44:10--> 00:44:35

And behave in the light of Allah if death finds us in that situation, then we will be from the fortunate and Allah knows the situation that we are in right now. Allah subhana wa tada is not ignorant of our circumstances are unaware of our circumstances, nor is the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And that's why in the authentic hadith of Allah I know because you know, a lot of times we look to the Sahaba and we think of them like they're the Avengers or something like that. You know, all

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

I knew was the Incredible Hulk. I beloved Mr. Udo the allow was a sliding. No, this is what we look to them as the Avengers. They're fictional characters. These were real people that face real circumstances. And the prophets I send them also knew what our circumstances would be like, and he loved us for that. And the prophets lie Solomon he used to go to the grave and he said home is whiny home.

00:45:00--> 00:45:06

They are my brothers. They are my beloved. And the Sahaba sorry, Allah Sula. Who are they? unsought or Mahajan?

00:45:07--> 00:45:16

And also last lifetime says, No, you are my companions. My brothers, my beloved ones are the ones who believed in me and they never even saw me.

00:45:17--> 00:45:58

Allah knows how much it grieves us to not have been able to meet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in this dunya and believe in Him, and that the greatest tragedy we face was his death it is Salatu was set up. But you know what else about that Allah narrates that the prophets lie Selim said, in the memoir he called a Yama Sodom, that Verily, behind you, oh, companions are days that will require great patience, a sub little fee, or to be patient in those days mithril capital and lol jump would be like grabbing a burning piece of coal. And for the one who applies is Dean and think about holding a hot piece of coal. And he's telling the companions that with all that they

00:45:58--> 00:46:06

went through, and he's talking about those that come afterwards. And for the one who acts in those days is the Agile the reward of 50.

00:46:07--> 00:46:09

And they said, Hold on.

00:46:10--> 00:46:11

Agile comes in a minimum

00:46:12--> 00:46:18

50 of them the reward of 50 of them, the profits license says no, I'm seeing I'm income,

00:46:19--> 00:46:57

the reward of 50 of you. When we do a good deed, it's multiplied. Why cuz a lot knows our circumstances. And I want to leave you for one story with one story, just to show you that people existed. After the companions that held on to this in the profit slice I'm Sophie Cooley. coordinamento mateesah, before inauthentic had Ethan Abner aim, the profit slice alongside and every generation of myeloma. There are people that are at that are at the forefront. There are people that supersede others, there are people that do more good deeds than others and people that meet the threshold better than others. There's always there always going to be people ahead of the bunch.

00:46:58--> 00:47:32

Because a lot you know, there's the saying that some people try to be outstanding, but they don't stand out. And they seek to be extraordinary, but they end up being extraordinary. People are satisfied with complacency and the horrible are not Mycenaean or not. And I want to give you a story, especially in light of what's taking place in Egypt right now. I want to give you a story about not a companion about a great Darya, a great scholar who passed away in the 1990s by the name of a chef Abdel Hamid Rahim Allah tala,

00:47:33--> 00:48:16

who stood against injustice in Egypt and stood against oppression and whose men were used to shake with sincerity will lie. If you go to the Middle East, sometimes you can hear cars, you know the way that you would hear people blasting music. You can hear cars shaking with a hot bath from a chef kiszko him or lots either. And this man, his draft was truly accepted. And we were talking about there as being Mr. job. I remember listening to a clip from the 1970s when qaddafi from Libya said to such said to the to the rulers in Egypt, he asked for the grave of Jamal Abdi Nasir to be transferred to Libya, and offered $500 million dollars.

00:48:18--> 00:48:46

And he said so that people can come do Pilates. People, people can come visit him the way they visit the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and when chef Kish heard that he made against him on the manbo and he said, Oh qaddafi, I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to make you a person who is taken out from Makati from the sewage system. I hope your people pull you from the sewage system and throw you away in an undisclosed location.

00:48:49--> 00:49:00

It's exactly what happened to the men. Allah answered his job. But you know what else he used to make other to us. And on December 5 1996.

00:49:01--> 00:49:02

He had a special dream.

00:49:04--> 00:49:06

On December 5, he woke up on December 6,

00:49:07--> 00:49:41

and he says to his family and I'm gonna end with this inshallah to Allah because I don't want to be interrupted with anything I want you to pay attention on December 6, which was Yeoman Juma in 1996. As the family is getting together to eat breakfast, which is very common in the Middle East before Juma people come together, the extended family to breakfast together, he tells his wife to hold the food. And as his family sitting there, he says, I want to share with you a dream that I had last night because the prophets I said him said that if you see something good share it. And he said I saw a dream last night

00:49:43--> 00:49:48

that I was in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and all over the katabi Allah

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

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told me say Salaam Aleykum selam Allah, Allah, they were happy to see me and he said shake the hand of Alma, we'll have Pablo de la

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

And he said, so I shook the hands of America at a low tide and shortly after that I fell dead in my dream.

00:50:09--> 00:50:17

And he said, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with a path, they carried my body, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did my hustle.

00:50:19--> 00:50:20

And I was watching that.

00:50:21--> 00:50:22

What a dream.

00:50:24--> 00:50:39

And his wife is in tears. And she is crying a lot. When he woke up that morning, he asked his son, he said, How old was the Prophet slicin on when he died? And he knows the answer. He said he was 63 years old. She started hamdulillah. I turned 63 today.

00:50:42--> 00:50:50

And his wife says, Why are you sharing this dream with us? When the profits lies, and I'm sad when you see a bad dream, don't share it and it won't hurt you.

00:50:51--> 00:51:00

And he says to her, who said this is a bad dream. said well, la he, I wish that things would happen exactly as they happen in that dream.

00:51:02--> 00:51:04

And so he goes and he makes his muscle first a lot to the Jumeirah.

00:51:06--> 00:51:07

And he goes out to leave the salon.

00:51:09--> 00:51:13

And as he is praying, when he goes into his suit, Allahu Akbar.

00:51:14--> 00:51:15

He never comes back up.

00:51:17--> 00:51:46

That's December 6 1996. You know when dear brothers and sisters, it was witnessed by many people. And you know what, dear brothers and sisters, he used to ask for that in his hotel bus. He used to say in his garage you can still hear at the end of his hospice. Allahumma agony Mama. Oh Allah allow me to live as an Imam and allow me to die as the mom. Why Shouldn't he be in a coma Anasazi Don't look at me

00:51:47--> 00:52:31

and allow me to be raised while I am making salute to you Oh Lord of the worlds and Allah gave him everything he asked for. He could have gotten him and Amati saw before. There are people like that that live amongst us. There are people like that that reach a level that is close. And that will earn them the companionship of the profit slice on him and his companions in alpha DOS, Allah Allah and we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make us amongst them. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us genital ferodo say I mean, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to make a strong the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Paradise, they are mean and we asked the last hour to make us from

those who do everything that has that has been who do everything with with everything that has been given to them. to please Him. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to allow us to die being pleased with him and him pleased with us. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us from a savvy born a well known born and to make us from almasi known Lama amin does that Kamala hyaluron aku Cody ha That was tough for the Lord He will not come was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
