ammonoid Topo la Pulu colon so the the useless Malecon way of relaxing with you know, back home, one day you're playing a lot of Sula who forgot the first 1000 Alima. From my bed, we bear witness that Allah subhanho wa Taala is alone in being worshipped and unconditionally obeyed. And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is his final messenger. And we ask ALLAH SubhanA huzzah added to send his peace and blessings upon him, his family, his companions, and those that follow until the Day of Judgment, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to make us amongst them, Allahu Allah, I mean, their brothers and sisters, when we talk about change, this entire concept of change,
you need to change yourself, you need to, you need to grow, you need to make progress with every Ramadan that comes, you need to make sure that you're a different person at the end of Ramadan, with every Juma with every day. There's something very important in this entire discussion of change. And that is that there are certain things about you, that should not change. And, in essence, when we discussed this entire topic of growth, and when we discussed this entire topic of going through the phases of life, and obviously our circumstances changing, you know, one moment we're healthy the next moment, we're completely sick. One moment, we're rich, the next moment, we've lost our jobs,
and we're poor, one moment, our marriages are wonderful the next moment, you know, we want a divorce. Right? One moment, you know, I love this kid of mine, I'm holding him I'm playing with him smiling, laughing. It's the coolness of my eyes, the next moment I want to kill my child, right Subhan Allah, we constantly go through these different circumstances in life where we change along with those circumstances. And one of the most phenomenal things about the prophets of Allah, Allah usnm Is that you find that the personality of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wa salam, the values of the prophets of Allah, how it was set on the principles of the prophets of Allah is the smile of the
prophets. Otherwise, his patience, all of the amazing qualities that we read about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam were his qualities for 63 years. Meaning there isn't a phase of the prophets liasons life that you look at, and you say, well, this happened to him. And so this changed a little bit the profit slice and it became a little bit more stern you know, after after the Macapa after the boycott, and the profit slice and you know, took it a little bit more easy after the Hijrah, you don't find any changes and also love slice and his personality and its power law gave me the inspiration of this whole book, as I was actually studying the center of the Hadith for another
horrible topic that I wanted to do today. And I saw three pages on the life of that man, and basically talking about why his Hadith and it was very interesting, his Hadith would be accepted until he was the age of 38. And then he went through a divorce. And he became very bitter. And so his Hadith was rejected for eight years. And then saleha he became righteous once again, he became happy once again, everything was good in his life, his memory was firm. Life shook him up for a little bit and then now his Hadith was okay. And I thought to myself, subhanAllah no one went through this, you know, no one went through the, you know, the circumstances, whether they were
circumstances of ease or hardship the way the prophets lie, Saddam did. You don't find any discussion about the prophets lysosomes character changing? And let's face it, we tend to be better people, when we're more vulnerable. Right? If I was in charge of this country, it's like, you know, everyone from their own respective countries talks about the politics of their country. Right if I
was in charge of Pakistan, masha Allah correct all of the corruption. If I was in charge of Egypt, there would be no dictatorship, there would be no villain. If I was in charge of Syria, if I was in charge of this, if I was in charge of Turkey, if I, I would have done this, if I was in charge of the country, if I was the president, I would have acted this way. But in reality, if you were in their shoes, you probably would have done the same thing. If I, you know, if I was rich, I would never act like that. If I had that position, if I was my boss, I wouldn't act like my boss's acting. But in reality, if you were in his position, you would do exactly the same thing that he does.
Because when we're vulnerable, and when we're on the receiving end of oppression, and of economic injustice, and inequalities, and you know, or arguments, we tend to always play Angel, we tend to think that, you know, this is, you know, hamdulillah I'm not like that. But if I was if Allah gave me wealth, and if Allah gave me position, if Allah put me in this situation, put me in that situation, then I would be there, then I would do this, and I would give charity and I'd be gentle, and I'd help the poor, right? How many students there are people in here? Mashallah. They're a very accomplished and successful people. And when you were growing up, you said, if I had $50,000 coming
in a year, I would give $20,000 in South Africa or something, and I would open up a homeless shelter if I had $100,000. And I would do this and I would do that. But what happened when you actually got there? You changed how many marriages? You know, does this take place in where you know in the first year where you know, you're engaged and mashallah, you're going through, you know, this, this sweet lovey dovey phase where it's nothing but courtesies, and it's nothing but kind words and flowers and chocolates. And then what happens? He changed, she changed, something happened, the real you came out. There's a very interesting Hadith from the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And this
hadith is named sahih al Bukhari and it's a very long Hadith. I'll paraphrase it to the best of my ability in sha Allah Tala, but it's a story that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he used to say it is slaughter. So I think it salatu salam had the flu and bunnies life and a few strange things used to happen to many slave things that don't happen to this pakora Salatu was Salam in the third assets and fee bunny is like in a grace or o'clock Well, Atma that there were three men from Benny slightly in one who was a leper, one who was bald and one who was blind, three months from Bani Israel.
But Allah He and Yabba Lee, Allah subhanaw taala decided to test them for Dafa ed him many Melaka Allah subhanho wa Taala had a son to them an angel.
So first I tell us, the angel went to the leper.
And the angel said to the leper, a you che and husband ache, what is it? That's most beloved to you? What do you want in this life? What is it that you want? God alone on Hassan, he said, you know, a nice color, what children Husson and good skin. I want my skin back. And I want my color back. I want to look normal cover cover Iranian us because people are you know, they find me to be detestable people don't like being around me. People look at me funny and things of that sort. So I don't want to have that condition anymore. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam says, For masa, the angel wiped on that man's skin, and the man skin came back for color au che and I'm sorry. So
then he asked him, Hey, you will marry I have like, I have to skip lines in this hadith but then he asked him what type of wealth is most beloved to you? So he said to him and camels. So Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him a pregnant camel and Allah subhanaw taala. The angel said to the man, that Allah subhanaw taala will put Baraka in it. And of course, the camel would give birth to camels that would give birth to camels that would give him a valley full of camels. Then he went to the bald men, and you say and Hubway like what do you want? Well, I want to be cured of my baldness. Right. This is a hair transplant divine hair transplant right, the Malak the angel wipes on his
head, and he has his hair back. Where are you in Madea hudway daikon? What type of money do you want? Or what type of wealth would you like? So he responds to him by saying sheep or goat. Okay, so that's given to him, as well. A pregnant goat is given to him and it would give birth to many goats. Then he goes to the blind men. Are you saying the Hebraic what is it that is most beloved to you? And the man responds, my eyesight I want to be able to see.
So the angel wipes his eyes and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he was able to see and he said a young man who had what you like, what is the type of welfare His most beloved to you? So the man responded and he said cattle, cows
So Allah subhanaw taala gave him a pregnant cow. Okay? And that, of course, would give birth to many, many, many cattle and he would have wealth and he would become a rich man. Then what it Allah subhanaw taala do to these people
as the years went on, and as these men became rich and established and regained reputation, right? And this is what Allah azza wa jal says intuitive budget, that whenever Allah subhanaw taala either rabbits or not when Allah subhanaw taala tests him with wealth. And when he tests him with status, well, I'm not inside or either monitor that we're on board for a chrono halt we're not AMA and this is exactly what happens to these people. Allah gave them their status back. They became beautiful people, handsome people. And at the same time, Allah subhanaw taala gave them a Nirvana, which was the wealth that Allah provided to them. Fair call Robbie acraman says, My Lord, you know, has
honored me, I'm doing well. And I'm well off and look at me mashallah look at what I've what I've achieved in life. So after a year as years go on Allah subhanaw taala, sends the angel back to them. But how does Allah send it back to them? As Paulo, this is absolutely amazing. Allah sends them back this angel in the exact appearance that they were wanting.
So the leper is looking at a leper, the mother comes to him in the form of a leper. And he begs him for something, he asked him for money. And this man tells him to go away. And he tells him move on. And the man was the leper, who's the angel response to mentalism? Weren't you like this before? Didn't you used to be like this? He says, I don't know what you're talking about. He said, didn't use to be poor. No, I was never poor. I inherited this money. I come from a rich family. Right? He makes up his entire past and SubhanAllah. What's he doing to the man that's in his exact same appearance? He's belittling him. You know, it's like when parents tell their children, whatever
their children mess up, like when I was your age, all I used to do when I was 18, was go to the masjid and read.
Like, you know, right. When you were his age, you were doing the same things that he was doing, right, just in a different manifestation, depending on your social context. But you were doing things to when you were his age, but you're not what I was your age I was this. Right? And when you see people coming to the masjid for the first time, okay, and you see youth and you say, you know, how can these people look like this? How can these people act like this, and you forget that there was a time where you were starting to get religious as well. And you were that person that walked into the masjid perhaps, and people looked at you and said, he doesn't even know how to pray
properly. Right? Look at him trying to get rid of it. Who is this person? There are people that said things about you. Right, but your heart shuts off and you forget where you once were. And this is especially true in regards to wealth. So he's putting this man down, who's an angel, he's telling him go away, Allah gave this to me, and the angel response and tells him that if you are lying, Allah subhanaw taala will destroy your wealth.
If you're not being truthful, Allah azza wa jal is going to get you. Allah goes to the second man. And the exact same situation takes place the exact same scenario. Right? What are you talking about? I've always been like this, I've always been rich, go away, get out of my you know, get out of my face. Why are you in front of me? Why are you asking me for money? And subhanAllah the angel response to that man as well. If you are lying, Allah subhanaw taala is going to destroy your wealth. Then he goes to the third man, the blindman, Atma and SubhanAllah. You know, there's a very small, and you know, this is not divined. But somehow I was listening to one of their, in his shot
of this hadith in his explanation of this hadith said, notice that the blind men had the most severe of the of the issues. Right, but being a leper, you can still see being bald, it's okay, all up all the time. And who was bald there at most, many of the Sahaba that were bald, it's not that big of a deal. That's, you know, whatever it may be, but a blind man lived a very harsh life.
Right? He had the most severe of the circumstances being blind. And so when the angel appears to him as a blind man, right away the man's heart response, and the man says to him, I used to be just like you called man, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala was generous to me and Allah subhanaw taala gave me this and he tells him some I love the story. And the blind man automatically says, go ahead and take whatever you want. It's all yours. It's all yours. Go ahead. You want you know, take as many animals as you want, take as much money as you want. He was humble, and SubhanAllah. The angel then went to his regular form and the angel informed that meant that Allah subhanaw taala was
pleased with him and Allah Subhana Allah
I would bless him with what he had given him and that Allah subhanaw taala was angry with his two companions and that Allah was going to destroy them.
Why there are many lessons that we can learn from this hadith, which again was paraphrase, but Subhanallah the man who suffered the most, the man who couldn't see he felt it more than anyone else that you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala really took care of me in my time of need. And so I need to respond. And so the promises that you make, you know, whenever you're in your vulnerable moments, when when everything is okay when you say to yourself if I had this and if I had that and if I was in that position in that situation, how do you make on those promises? Right, do you actually come through to Allah subhana wa Tada. You know, we have a lot of unfulfilled promises to Allah subhanaw
taala when we look in our lives, right, we have a lot of unfulfilled promises in regards to Toba repentance, Oh Allah, I'm never going to come anywhere near that sin. Again, we have those unfulfilled promises all of us in some way, shape or form. Right? Or Oh Allah, if I get this, then I'll do this. All of us have our unfulfilled promises to Allah subhanaw taala. Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala is still for bearing with us. A while some how to I still for bearing with us, but the example that we take from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
that none of this changed him.
You know, you don't find it shall I use all the along the time?
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was under the most, you know the greatest amount of stress and difficulty and that's when the rumor was spreading around, that I shall not be allowed to I had committed adultery, that pain the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but I shall have the Allah Tala. And how did she know something was wrong with the Prophets lie Selim did the prophets I said I'll make a few smart remarks at home. Right did the prophets lie Selim say things turn to the Prophet slice and I'm make any any funny remarks towards you to the prophets lice and I'm treated her with anger. No, since he noticed that the prophets lie Selim. When he entered upon her and she
was sick. He said, Sit on why they come. He smiled, he asked how she was doing and that was it.
Meaning she was used to the prophets lie Selim having long conversations with her. How many conversations do we see between the eyes and the prophets lies them as soon as he gets home? Right they start to talk about the day they start to talk about what happened was so most licensed for their narrations, for example, about a robot kit or another it's not about other companions through the eyes of the Allah I'm incidents because there's some was like some came home and also lost like some told her about it. Or they told jokes or that you know, I did have on zlatar I should have the Allah on her telling the prophets lysozyme about what happened amongst the women that day. So she
knew because the province I said didn't have an extended conversation with her.
Never in the Sierra. Now once did the prophets lie Selim change? Did he become a different man? Did he become unrecognizable of Allah, you know, and you have to be very politically correct with this. But I want you to think about the great men of the last 100 years. People that were great people that accomplished many things. When you study them, they were dedicated to certain causes as young people, right, be against racial discrimination, be it against, you know, social, whatever economic discrimination, you know, people that worked for peace in the world and things of that sort. What happened to those men when you look deep into their biographies as they got rich, and as they got
powerful, almost unanimously, Zina,
adultery. It's almost unit SubhanAllah. Almost each and every single great figure that you study had affairs once they got powerful. There is a sense of invincibility that comes with that. Right now I'm here. Yeah, initially, I used to care about people and probably still do, but now I'm here. Right, who's gonna say anything to me, people are very forgiving to great people. But the prophet saw I said, I didn't change anything. I was so lost. I said, I'm still dressed the same. We don't find any change in his dress. You couldn't tell by the dress of the Prophet slice and I'm his economic situation. The way the prophets I said, I'm carried himself. I'm the lover hydrophobia
Allah Tada. And he says, I never looked at the prophets like Selim, not in eastern hardship, except that I saw him smiling. You couldn't tell what was going on in his life or, you know, something wrong here. He still smiled from Allah. It was salah, even as he buried six of his seven children out of his salatu salam, he smiled, just a consistent character that was completely unaffected by the worldly circumstances that came to them in regards to his personality, not once with his documented biography, and you might think to yourself, well, that's the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you're right. And you're absolutely right. But we still we still should take a lesson
from that. Right? If, if when you come home every single day, your wife doesn't know what she's going
To get there's a problem,
right? And the same thing applies to the wife and the husband. Your kids don't know if they're going to be able to come and play with you or you're going to tell them to go away and back off of you. Right? That's just in a date or that's just in regards to your daily circumstances. But what about as your dunya we circumstances continuously change in life? Are you the same person that you were 20 years ago? 10 years ago, five years ago, are you the same person? Or do you snap and are you a different person and in accordance with your circumstances, you know, a reckless vehicle or the low tide and Spatola in a bucket in his Khilafah used to walk around carrying, you know, carrying his
bag and going to the marketplace and buying and selling and it will be a little tighter and who tries to stop all the back it'll the alarm and says Look, you're the Khalifa we'll give you your portion from beta deniable bucket is like no, that's separate. He's still doing that. And subhanAllah one very touching incident without the Allah Tala and who he said that Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu he used to go and help the orphan girls milk their goats as Khalifa he would be seen publicly milking the goats of the little orphan girls. So some of the Sahaba came to him and said yeah bucket will take care of this you don't have to worry about this. And listen to what other
bucket will be a low tide and who said he said I don't want the title Khalifa. To change anything good about me before I was Khalifa
I don't want that title of Khalifa that came in front of me, not me. I don't want my name. I don't want it to change anything good to do away with any good characteristic that I used to have before I was Khalif. This is something I used to do before Khilafah. And it's good. Why should I stop doing it now? Why should I stop doing it now? What a beautiful response. And what a beautiful characteristic And subhanAllah with that there's a miracle even in the Quran with Yusuf alayhi salam because we talked about to how will the Nerima just you know, fortunes changing? You look at use of it his setup, how many times did his fortunes change? One moment? He's the favorite child, the next
moment he's abandoned in a while and might die. One moment he's a slave, then he's a prisoner. Then you know what? He's the head of state. He's the king. Right talk about to how would a narrow man blessings changing and how you maintain a consistent personality if your use of it his setup, and we find Subhanallah the prisoners when they saw use of it Salaam in prison, what did they say to him in Iraq, I mean and Mycenae, we can tell you're a good person. The other prisoners saw him in prison despite what he was going through and sat in on Iraq. I mean, unless you're clearly a good person, and you're someone who excels in his in his good deeds and is doing well. They could see it in him
in the way he carried himself. And then as his fortune changes, and he goes from prisoner to Prime Minister, right to Al Aziz and his brothers not knowing who he is, right, come to Him and ask Him for things to help them in their in what they were going through. They say to him the exact same words, in Nana Ramadan Mycenean, we can tell you're a good person, we can tell that you're a good doer. So whatever sit somehow whether he's in prison, or whether he's sitting on the throne, Yusuf alayhi salam still had that goodness to him, nothing changed. Nothing changed about We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to make us only amongst those that change for the better we ask Allah
Subhana Allah to Allah to allow us to be humble, to allow us to be grateful, no matter what our situation is, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to keep us in a way that is most pleasing to Him and that Allah subhanaw taala reads us of the things that are not pleasing to Him. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant us something from the character of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam Allama Amin Akula Califa are stuck with Allah and He will come when he started and I mean, that stuff you know in the whole world of all over him
learn you can keep Ebola Ebola free

What are people to dealing with sapien Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala decoda silica Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was talking to sell him to see when Kathira your brothers if you can please move up and Chatelet I just take a moment to move up in sha Allah
two brothers and sisters as you all know Ramadan is coming, the season of change the season where through which we're supposed to grow and become that better person. And we're supposed to get close to Allah subhanaw taala and all of a sudden be reminded of our blessings and all of a sudden be reminded that there are greater things in life and all of these things that we all know that we will hear as Ramadan comes but I want to leave you with what I think is a very, very important Hadith. And that hadith is a Hadith from Alvarado. The
Low tide and that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, a primal shock is something that you can be right now.
A grateful one one who is who eats but at the same time is grateful be menzi little slot in a slot.
The one who eats and is grateful has the same Manzella as a saw in a slob, as the one who is patient and fasting, your reward when you go home, and you're still grateful with what Allah subhanaw taala gave to you, and you're still humble is the same thing as when you're patient and you're feeling the pains of hunger as you fast. That's a personality trait that we're supposed to be developing in our lives. Don't be that person I speak to myself first. Don't be that person, that when they have authority or when they have the attention of people use it to be arrogant and to be rude and to demonstrate pride. Be that person who you know whether they are wealthy or whether they are poor,
whether they are famous or whether they are you know, little you know, low in their society, whatever it may be, be that person, you know, throughout the day, whether you had a good day at work or a bad day at work that has consistent goodness, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us always from Alma Icynene alumna I mean a lot more fit in what we need. I mean, that's what a Muslim you know, well Muslim out here even humble and watch in Nicosia and Caribbean Would you Would that what a lot more fitted on our camera.
