00:04:10--> 00:04:48

When a Utah a la hora Sudha who forgot the FISA 1000 Alima from my bed. We begin by praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and bearing witness that none has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for him Subhana and we asked him to send his peace and blessings upon his final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, his family, his companions and those that follow until the day of judgment, and we ask Allah to make us amongst them alone. I mean, your brothers and sisters, any amount of no plague him or him Allah to Allah establishes something very beautiful about our religion at the same time quite frightening depending on which side of the fence

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

that you fall. If they'll claim Rahim Allah to Allah he says that it's inevitable that on the Day of Judgment, Allah Subhana Allah Tada will ask you about each and every single person

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Listen, and each and every single thing that you interacted within this dunya. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has established a right upon you, by virtue of you coming into contact with anyone or anything in this world. And he states this on the basis of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the first Hadith he uses, actually, is the Hadith where the prophets lie, Selim mentions a scholar, and a person of knowledge, and the Prophet slice, and I'm mentioning that even the fish in the sea, and the ants in the ground, and the birds in the sky, seek forgiveness for the seeker of knowledge. And he says that, if even the animals if even the environment is going to testify for you

00:05:43--> 00:06:21

or against you on the Day of Judgment, then what then of the various people that you're going to come into contact with. And this is something that we've spoken about here before. And I'm just mentioning it sort of as an introduction for the topic that we're going to go into that, you know, as you interact with people, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions the right of the writer upon the one who was sitting, and the one who is sitting upon the one who was driving by, and he mentions the right of the one who's walking in front and the one who's walking behind. And he mentions the right it has salatu salam of the congregation on the map, and the rights of the Imam on

00:06:21--> 00:06:58

the congregation, and the rights of the parents upon the children as well as the rights of the children upon the parents, as well as the rights of the youth upon the elders and the rights of the elders upon the youth. It's amazing because as you go through the cook, the rights of the of the worshipper of the servant in this religion, you constantly find the Prophet slice and I'm balancing things out. If he mentions the right of the wife, then he'll mention the right of the husband as well. And if he mentions the right of a parent, the rights of the children as well. And so the prophets lie Selim wants to establish by that a wholesome society where people recognize that not

00:06:58--> 00:07:40

only are they responsible for the well being of others around them, but their Jana, their paradise lies in the way that they treat other people. It's reflected in the first speech of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam when he comes into Medina Are you a nurse oh people I've just set up well for Mr. Brown. Oh people, spread Salam amongst yourself, spread peace amongst yourselves. This is his inaugural address as he's building a new society. spread peace amongst yourselves and feed the needy amongst you will follow for lady was a little bit lady when Nasrani up and pray at night while other people are sleeping. And you will enter Jana in peace total Jana, be Salam. You will enter Gemma in

00:07:40--> 00:08:21

peace and a half of the village of Rahim Allah to Allah he comments on that and he says that a person gains salam from Allah subhanho wa Taala by his prayer at nights, and he spurred salaam to the creation of Allah subhanaw taala by his character during the day. It's beautiful if you think about it, that from Allah, you gain peace and to the people. You distribute, it's it's something that you fill your heart with, that allows you to act in a certain way with everyone that's around you and everything that's around you. And that comes with knowledge and it comes with worship and it comes with Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala that suddenly everything around you. You're constantly

00:08:21--> 00:09:02

thinking about how Allah wants you to treat it or treat that person and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he illustrates this, this everlasting battle of trying to figure out where you're going to dedicate or devote your attention to the reason being that if not AMR him, Allah is saying that each and every single person that you have met in this world, establish some right upon you, and will either witness for you or against you on the Day of Judgment, then where do we divide our loyalties? How do we balance ourselves out? How do we dedicate and devote ourselves considering the limited amount of time that we have and also the emotional capacity that we have, you know, it's

00:09:02--> 00:09:42

Subhanallah, some people's emotional bandwidth is larger than others. Some people have the capability to love one or two people and that's it. Some people have the capability to love 100 or 200 people. And that's why what Allah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not charge us by our hearts and the things that are not in our control. And the prophets lie some of them he makes this dua to Allah subhanaw taala that Allah does not take him to account for what his heart inclines towards. He might love it, some of the law I know more than he loves on selling all the time. But he's going to treat them exactly the same way. And Allah subhanaw taala will not charge us for the

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

things that we feel in our heart. But even if you only love one or two people and that's your emotional bandwidth, you will treat everyone the way that Allah subhanaw taala commanded you to treat them the way that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam illustrated through his behavior, that you should treat them

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

It's not about how you feel about them. It's about how you treat them. And every person and everything has a right upon you. And this is illustrated through two beautiful Hadith beautiful stories in the time of the Prophet sly Salam. The first one is the prophets lie some himself giving advice. And the second one is the prophets lie some confirming the advice of another companion. In the first situation the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam advises Abdullah bin Ahmed Abdul Rasul the low tide and Homer because Abdullah bin Ahmed is neglectful to his family, not because he's out hanging out at night, not because he's going to clubs not because he's, you know, spending too much

00:10:42--> 00:11:23

time at work. He spends too much time and worship. So he's neglectful to his parents and he's neglectful to his spouse, because he's too busy worshiping ALLAH SubhanA. Allah to Allah, he fasts every single day of his life. He spends the entire or not every day of his life up until this point from the time he accepts Islam to this point, he fasts every single day, including the date that he was that, that he accepted Islam and the day that he was married. At night, he prays so long, that in the two records that he prayed with his wife, you know, when you first get married on your wedding night, when you pray those two records with your wife, and the loved one 100 Ross did not

00:11:23--> 00:11:43

recite for that job and follow up and call that Robin nurse he recited Al Baqarah and Ernie Amman. He drove her crazy on the very first night because all he wants to do is worship Allah all the time. And the prophets like Selim has to mod has to teach in moderation. And he says to him, that Oh, Abdullah inally just declare, like,

00:11:44--> 00:12:24

your body has a right upon you. When he he cried, he could have caught your eyes have rights upon you. His eyes will be a little tighter. And you can imagine the scene when the prophets lie some saw me said Why are your eyes read? He didn't used to sleep much. So he had literally those bloodshot eyes and the prophets lie. Some said Your eyes have right rights upon you. And he says what he's already Karateka your guests have rights upon you. And he says, Well, he's Oh, DECA and Iike hubco. Your spouse has rights upon you. So you have to find a way to moderate this to where you're not giving too much of your time to only one of the parties that has a right upon you. You've got to

00:12:24--> 00:12:34

find a way to balance things out. The more famous story is the story of Superman and fantasy. It'll be a long time. And I will double the law where Superman notices that

00:12:35--> 00:13:16

you know, fast during the day, he starts praying from the very beginning of the night so he doesn't you know, he doesn't spend any time with his wife. He has no time for this dunya all he's doing all the time is worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. And he forces him to eat lunch and he forces him to sleep and wake up only in the last third of the night. And he tells about that that will be a long time and who Yeah. In Malinowski Kalika hubco While the rhombic Erica hubco When he Ernie Carly could have talked for hours, he couldn't leave the Hopkin hubco. He said, oh, about the RDA, your Lord has a right upon you, your your your family has a right upon you and you have a right upon

00:13:16--> 00:14:03

yourself. Your body has a right upon you. So find a way to give each one of those their particular rights. And this is really, really powerful, that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, who could spend an entire night in prayer, who loves to worship Allah subhanaw taala more than any one of us could possibly love to worship Allah, the One to whom the Quran was revealed, the one who actually had the honor of having spoken directly to Allah subhanho wa taala. And seeing many of the things of the unseen that are mentioned in the Quran and the prophets lie, Selim is telling his companions, don't read too much. And don't pay too much. And don't fast too much, because everyone

00:14:03--> 00:14:40

has a right upon you. Now, when we talk about this balancing act, and how do we figure it out, because we've all been there where either you start getting a little bit too busy and you start scratching away and gaining some success in your career. And then suddenly, your family pulls back and says, You're spending too much time at work, or you're worshipping or you started to get a little bit religious, and especially the younger people when they start to tend towards religion and now they want to attend MSA events and seminars and classes and they want to go to more Masjid programs and your parents say, you're going to the masjid too much you need to spend more time at

00:14:40--> 00:14:59

home. Or I find that that battle between my schoolwork and my my religious pursuits or my career. When you get older, you know, you want to still be able to contribute to the masjid in the way that you used to be able to, but now life has changed, your responsibilities have accumulated. You don't have that kind of time anymore. So Subhanallah you

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

You're constantly being pulled in some sort of direction. And by our nature, we are imbalanced people. There is no way that you can attain perfect balance. There is a reason why it was so lost all along. It was Salam is the Rasul Allah, he's the only person that can be the perfect worshiper, the perfect husband, the perfect father, the perfect Imam. Right, he's the only one that can combine all of those things, all of us by our nature are going to be a little bit imbalanced or maybe a little bit more imbalanced. We're all going to be pulled in these different directions. And there are a few beautiful tips that we take are a few, you know, important tips that we take from the

00:15:39--> 00:15:53

scholars as to how to navigate this realm of balance, the first thing when it comes to the rights that are due upon you, as for the things that people do for you, so we're talking about you being on the receiving end,

00:15:54--> 00:16:37

people doing things for you, people fulfilling their rights towards you and even showing you Exxon, but you failing to recognize that so they show you excellence they show you nothing but love and devotion and loyalty. And it's almost always the case that in a relationship, there is no way that both people are equally devoted, and equally loyal. And even if they are in the you know, in the sense of of love and the expression of compassion, there's going to be a difference in what one person is willing to do for the other there is always going to be an imbalance. So we learned from the profit slice and um, first and foremost, mon la escuela NAS, la escuela whoever does not fake

00:16:37--> 00:17:19

people, does not think Allah subhanho wa taala. Whoever doesn't show appreciation to people, for the things that they do for them, does not show appreciation to Allah subhanho wa Taala for the infinite blessings that he's bestowed upon you. There is no way that you could be grateful to Allah while being ungrateful to people. And the first rights of a person upon you is that they are thanked when they do something for you. Why because our Eman is likened to gratitude it's likened to shook her as a whole. When we are grateful to Allah subhanaw taala we're driven to worship Him, when we are ungrateful, we are driven to what the most ungrateful creature in the history of in the history of

00:17:19--> 00:17:59

creation was driven to, which was, at least when he was driven to disbelief. So the very first right is that when you recognize that there's imbalance in your life, that there's someone that's giving you more than you're giving to them, by nature of your career, by nature of your worship by nature, and that's probably very rare in our times, but by nature of something else in your life, that's, that's not, that's not allowing that equilibrium to be completely met, at least make sure that you're filling in that gap with a with a huge amount of gratitude, with a huge amount of Sukkot with a huge amount of recognition. And subhanAllah. By definition, people that are compassionate and

00:17:59--> 00:18:39

giving, are usually satisfied with words of thinks they're usually satisfied with just some level of recognition, usually, when they're when they're when there's a marital dispute, and they're to kneel. And there are so many marital disputes and so many reasons for marital disputes. But one of the things that we see many times is that one person's going above and beyond, and the other person's not recognizing it. And that's when the discussion starts to be, you know, more or less about gratitude, and more about why aren't we on equal ground here was usually when the person that is not necessarily as giving and not necessarily as as loving and compassionate and so on so forth.

00:18:39--> 00:19:23

Usually, as long as that person is recognizing that gap, and showing appreciation, then that concern is not going to be on the other side. So the first thing is actually recognizing when others are doing things for you and you are falling short towards them. And you know, the prophets like some it's very interesting because as he gives these two sides of the coin, these two sides of the story, right, the first one is whoever is not grateful to people, is not grateful to Allah. He also says it his salatu salam in an authentic hadith from above Adel will be a longtime hula is called Allah min Elias Coronas. Allah subhanho wa Taala will not think the one who does not think the people. And

00:19:23--> 00:19:59

this is the understanding of this hadith and this particular order, Allah will not be grateful to a person who is not grateful to the people. And if you think about what that means, if you want a lot to appreciate the things that you do for him, things that are obligatory and things that are voluntary, then you need to appreciate what people do for you whether they are mandatory or whether they are voluntary. Think about that concept again. You weren't allowed to accept your salon to be pleased with your salon to appreciate your salon to appreciate your charity to appreciate that extra level

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

Have nephila That extra voluntary deed that you did for his sake, if you weren't allowed to accept it and be grateful to you for doing that, be grateful to the people that do things for you, whether they are obligatory meaning whether they're understood, or whether they're voluntary. Whether they're things that are expected of a wife, or a husband, or a father, or a mother or a child or a brother or a sister, whether those things are accepted or not, whether they're obligations or not, learn to be grateful for them learn to say thank you learn to demonstrate an appreciation, when someone shows you either what's minimum, or what's beyond them, learn to express some level of

00:20:40--> 00:20:57

appreciation. And that will help you fill in that gap. The second thing that we learned from the aroma in regards to this hadith is that ask for the rights that others have upon you. The only party that's going to be reasonable, always reasonable, out of all of those parties mentioned is ALLAH SubhanA, WA, tada.

00:20:59--> 00:21:37

No one's always, it's never going to be a situation where everyone is going to see things the way that they're supposed to be seen. You're never always going to have that perfect balance. Even if you are maintaining balance, someone's going to feel neglected, someone's going to feel like you're not doing enough, the pull room will still be there, you're still going to be pulled in these different directions. The only one that will not demand things of you all the time. That will never demand things of you that are unreasonable is Allah subhanaw taala. At times our spouses will make unreasonable demands, at times our children will make unreasonable demands, at times our friends

00:21:37--> 00:22:19

will make unreasonable demands, okay? So it's going to happen that people because they're imbalanced as well, are going to have unbalanced expectations of you. So you have to first establish that it's never going to be completely at peace. It's not like okay, if I spend two hours here, and two hours here and two hours there, it settles the entire discussion. No, this is an everlasting battle. This is a battle that you have to strive with, even at the end of your life to try to figure out where do I dedicate my energy to, to now? And how do I split things apart? Now, a half of the closet, Rahim Allah to Allah says that the worst situation that you could possibly be in, is when the people that

00:22:19--> 00:22:58

have a right upon you that you are to be with them, and you're supposed to, you know, do things for them, that because of how abusive you are, they actually don't want you to be around. So this is the situation of a volume of an oppressor where the company is actually not even welcomed, we don't want your time. The longer you stay at work, the better. The longer you stay in the masjid, the better because when you come home, you're allowed, you're abusive, right, you're harmful. So it's actually better that you stay back. And that is the worst situation to be in. And we ask a lot to protect us from that. Because that is when you are in a situation of load. That is when you are a wrongdoer to

00:22:58--> 00:23:37

where people are bothered by your presence, not because of something within them, but because of something that you are doing. Because your behavior and your character is so nasty, people actually don't want to be around you, whether it's your family members, or your friends, or whatever it may be. And that's the worst situation, I'm not going to spend too much time on that. Because I would hope that inshallah Tada that the majority of people in here don't fit in that category. But when you find that you're trying to divide time, and you're trying to find that balance. He goes on to say that there's that there's, there's a reason why people want more of you. So if you do spend time

00:23:37--> 00:24:18

with people, and you do give your right to your family, or you're trying to give your right to your family, he said there's a reason why they would want more of you. He said either it's from a Knox or it's from an SM. And what that means is it's either because you're not doing enough, or because you're doing too much. What does that mean? If it's not, if it's deficiency that you're giving to the people, meaning you're not giving enough of the right of your family upon you, or your brother or your sister upon you, then that deficiency is going to cause them to demand more. But now here's the other side of that. If you do give them a lot of love, and you do give them a lot of comfort,

00:24:18--> 00:24:57

when you're with them, what ends up happening, you show them axon. So no matter how much time you spend with them, they want more. And he said that because that imbalance will always remain. He says make sure that people desire you for your exon and not for your next make sure people desire more of your time and more of your company because of how good you treat them when you are with them because of how excellent you are in fulfilling those rights upon them when you are with them. And not because you're falling shorts as it it'll be a long time and who says that you live your life in a way that if you die the people weep for you if you die the people crying for you. And if you're

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

alive they long for your company.

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

Do you find that that situation where you know what, when I am with someone because look, I wish all of the Allah

00:25:07--> 00:25:42

who admits to the perfection of the character of the prophets lie Selim, who says nothing but amazing things about his character. But guess what? she longed for him, she missed him. She waited for him to come home every single day, she would wait. And if he didn't come home at the time she was expecting she'd go out looking for him. It is salatu salam, that was there. It wasn't because the prophets like some was a neglectful husband. It was because when the Prophet slice them was with her, he made her feel in that in such a way that she couldn't wait for him to come home on his follow up with the same thing with his children. Faulty model, the alarm, I'm going to say something

00:25:42--> 00:26:21

very profound and very beautiful. She says that sometimes when I used to long for my father's company, I would show I needed the alarm, I knew that I was really hungry, or that, you know, I was in pain, or I was sad, because if the province like some heard that faulty man was sad, he dropped everything and come to her house. Subhanallah she longed for the prophets lie sums company so much, that she would portray that sadness so that she could be comforted by him on his salatu salam. So it's only natural that if you show it some, if you show that excellence to your family, and to the people that have those rights upon you, they'll want more of you. But that's good. That's actually a

00:26:21--> 00:26:30

good thing. And that means that you keep on trying to fulfill that balance, but you make sure that at no point, it's Knox, its deficiency.

00:26:31--> 00:27:10

It's, there's a difference between a complaint that you're never around, and that you're never doing what you're supposed to be doing. And it's a legitimate complaint because Allah knows that there's sometimes exaggerations and not to and those determine that as well. Sometimes there's wrongdoing and oppression and that sometimes, and the other complaints, which is, you know, do you really have to go now, you know, where someone has enjoyed you enjoyed your conversation, where they have long, so much for the way that you treat them. That's how long they crave that and that becomes the highlight of their day or the highlight of their week. That's a very, very different perception

00:27:10--> 00:27:20

altogether. And the last thing that we learned from this hadith is what half of the Mombasa Rahim Allah Allah says, which is another more for narration, Accra, bona Ola didn't matter at all.

00:27:21--> 00:28:03

Those who are closest to you are most deserving of seeing your kindness. You cannot emotionally exhaust yourself and spend yourself at work all day long. So that by the time you get home, or by the time you even pick up the phone to talk to your family members to talk to those that are closest to you. You're so you know, you are so angry, and grumpy and cranky, that they're not even getting the real you. You know, you think about what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to teach us about how he would go home, and the way that we should go home. And many times it's not about the quantity of the time, it's about the quality of the time, that let those who are closest to you,

00:28:03--> 00:28:42

when they have your time, when you are trying to fulfill their rights upon you let it not seem like an obligation. And let me just get it over with and I'm tired. I've had a long day at work, I don't want to talk right now. And I'll snap at every little thing, it doesn't work that way. You don't come home that way. Those that are closest to you are most deserving of your kindness, they should see more of your good behavior than anyone else on the outside of your home. We spend so much time exhausting ourselves pleasing the strangers around us. And I'm not saying we shouldn't be nice to the strangers around us. That by the time we spend time with our family, we're angry, we're cranky,

00:28:42--> 00:29:20

we're grumpy, we're easily irritated. And we're not giving them the right upon us. So as you're trying to find that balance, remember quality, time, quality time, not you're at home and you're on your cell phone and you're and you're and you're ignoring everyone around you the entire time, quality time. Spend some time with your family members. And even if you live far away from your parents, spend some time on the phone with them actually speaking to them, actually talking to them, and your brothers and your sisters and those that are closest to you. Do not give them a shell of yourself but instead give them your heart. And this is what the prophets of Allah Islam teaches us

00:29:20--> 00:30:00

with his example. And with his work before I sit down I'll mention a very beautiful narration, which many of us may have heard but Subhanallah as we read into the context of it, it only becomes more beautiful. So he didn't want to be brought to bear he says that. I was doing philosophy around the character and in one narration they're both authentic. He says that they've been honorably Allah Tala Anhu. And this other man who was from Yemen. We're both carrying their mothers on their backs. And in one narration, he hints that it was only the other man, the the man from Yemen. So you can imagine the scene that they are both doing pull off and they are both carrying their mother

00:30:00--> 00:30:26

is on their backs as they are doing pull off. Paola, you talk about good sons. And if indeed it is even almost all of the Radi Allahu Anhu as well that's carrying his mother on his back a person of that stature in the OMA and he's still carrying his mother on his back and they're doing the life together. They didn't have the guys with the wheelchairs back then. Right. They are carrying their mothers together. And you know, what's so beautiful about this narration and the narration other than

00:30:27--> 00:30:55

the wording of what or what the what they were saying, as they were carrying their mothers is narrated the man from Yemen, as he was carrying his mother, he looked to he was saying in the presence of him and he says, in the law bury the eagle model. I am her humble camel. He was not he wasn't complaining. He was giving her some comfort. He says in the law that Iran will then in order Iraq's recap,

00:30:57--> 00:31:27

he said that it's the one who's writing the camel gets scared or starts to get nervous or starts to get trouble. The camel stays firm. Hala, so you know, obviously she's nervous. She's, there's a metaphorical meaning to this. And there's a literal meaning the literal meaning is that if she's nervous on the on the back of her son, then her son will continue to hold firm because because a camel goes forth anyway, with firmness even if the writer starts to get nervous and starts to demonstrate a certain thing. The other thing is he's telling his mother that he will always be there for her.

00:31:29--> 00:32:10

When she's shaky, when she's not shaky, when she's angry, when she's happy. I am to you, oh, my mother, like a humble camel. So this writing is not just in the head, not just in HUD that I am for you. I will do whatever you want me to do. And I'm proud of it. Subhanallah he's expressing joy. And even a lot of the Allah and when he looked at that, and he was pleased with it, he smiled at it. Because that's that's a beautiful expression. You know, it wasn't like, oh, five, six, jello will get done. Seven. Can you do Saturday by yourself? Can you figure that out? No. He's expressing love to his mother. I'm proud to do this. I'm happy to do this. I'm happy to be at your service. It's an

00:32:10--> 00:32:27

attitude. It's an expression. It's not just an obligation. It's Exxon Mobil, YT Dany Asana that you so excellence to your parents, and so we've been almost smiled at him. And when they finished it, he says to have been on it'll be a lot of times. He says to Ronnie, just say to her,

00:32:28--> 00:33:05

Do you think that I paid her back? He wasn't saying it out of, you know, like, like, I'm done with this, which is how the narration gets presented sometimes, you know, like, Am I done? Do I not have to do anything for any more? He says, Do you think I've paid my mother back for everything she's done for me? And he said, well, the low tide on one of these efforts in Wahida, not even for one of her shouts in labor, you have not paid her back. But the reason why I quote this narration here, dear brothers and sisters, is not because of the action of vigilante Dane per se not because of the way that the parents are being treated here. Because that in and of itself is a hot button that in

00:33:05--> 00:33:46

and of itself is multiple Hitler's the rights of the parents upon the children there is no greater right after the right of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah than the right of the parents upon the child. That's it, ALLAH SubhanA Horta, Allah has titled to his own right upon him. But the reason why I put this here is because of the attitude of those two men, particularly that man from Yemen, the attitude that he had, as he was fulfilling a very, very, very honorable light upon him from his mother. It wasn't an attitude of God, here we go again. It was whatever you want, I'll keep on doing it. And it reminds me Subhanallah of a personal experience where I once had someone on Hajj with me.

00:33:47--> 00:34:21

And he was there with his elderly father and he was serving his father throughout the Hajj and may Allah subhanaw taala give us all the opportunity to do so Allah Allah Amin serving is father in particular and Hajj and you always have those people that are serving their parents in Hajj. And he wanted to find the purse, you know, the wheelchairs so that he could push his father around during the Koloff. And during the surgery, and SubhanAllah. I will never forget when we got to that place. And I told them, okay, you can hand them over and take his cell phone just like everybody else. Take his cell phone number, you'll you'll he'll call you after he's done. You'll meet with the person

00:34:21--> 00:34:28

that was pushing him because they have dedicated people to push those people in those wheelchairs and everything will be okay. And he said, No, no, I'll push him.

00:34:30--> 00:34:59

And I told him, I said, No, look, it's okay. They do this, don't worry, because I thought it was a matter of safety, that he was worried about this young man, you know, who's pushing the father and usually, you know, people fall asleep in those wheelchairs. So they could do two or three times instead of seven or do Saturday, two or three times, right. I didn't know if it was safety if it was something else. And he said, No, no, I'll push him. And I told him, I said, look, it's safe. You have a cell phone number. They do this all the time. You know what he said? He said, It's not about safety. It's about Jana.

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

So this is my agenda. This is my budget. I don't want anyone else to take my budget. It's kind of why he's saying that. And I looked at the face of his father and you can just see the pride in his father's face. Right the the level of tuck the of the level of honor that his son was showing to him, it's not about who's pushing the wheelchair. It's about that attitude that this isn't just a right I want to do this because I want to show you that gratitude and that appreciation for everything that you have done for me as well. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us the people of Exxon to make us the people that treat those around them, particularly those that are closest to

00:35:34--> 00:35:48

them with the best of their heart and with the best of our son and we ask Allah to forgive us for our shortcomings to our family members and to everything that is around us, the people and the things around us. Allah I mean, a whole call we have was stuff for a while you will accompany certain Muslim infrastructure you know, in the hood of a Fort Wayne.

agenda the prophets lie Selim says that there is no servant instead of our low or eaten which means that Allah subhanaw taala gave him a flock and the prophets lie some says Kulu Cumbre and what could look on my own alaria to each one of you is responsible for his flock, you are all shepherds and responsible for your flock. He sets like Saddam, there is no person that Allah subhanaw taala gives a flock to and he does not do what he is supposed to do with that flock He does not look after them in the way that he is supposed to look after them, except that he will never smell the sense of paradise. Our agenda is in those people that are around us. Our agenda is within our parents. Our

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

agenda is within our families.
