From my marriage we begin by praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, declaring his perfection and bearing witness that none has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for him Subhana wa Tada. And we asked him to send his peace and blessings upon his final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family, his companions and those that follow until the day of judgment. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us amongst them I mean, the brothers and sisters as we are halfway through Ramadan now and as we're
going into the next 10 nights in sha Allah to Allah and just a few days, what I wanted to go over today was a very interesting Hadith that many of us have heard, but I think that it deserves a little bit more of explanation and a little bit more of a reflection of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as Narrated by Abu Dhabi alongside and who was one day walking to the member. And as the Prophet slicin was ascending his pulpits, when he set foot on the first step, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Amin,
and the Sahaba were sitting there. And, you know, the Sahaba were very perceptive. And they were always paying attention to the Prophet slice Salam, to see if there was some sunnah they could learn or if there was some practice that the prophets licen was doing, that had a meeting that had a meaning for them, you know, to take into consideration so they were shocked. What made it even more confusing when the profit slice ascended another step but also Allah slice and I'm said Amin once again, and they were still shocked and quiet. And then finally as the profit slice, ascended a third step Rasul Allah slice and M says, I mean, once again, now the Sahaba as a bowrider, or the Allah
and who said, they were sitting, you know, and when, when the narration says cannot at all see him at play, but it says if there were birds sitting on their heads, it shows you the patience of the Sahaba it shows you that the Companions you know, to have a bird stood on your head, you'd have to be incredibly still and if you make a single movement, you would scare the bird away. suborbital says the Sahaba are sitting there, quiet, you know, paying close attention to the messenger slice alum, trying to learn what the prophets like Selim was trying to deliver to them. And one of the teaching methods of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was to spark the curiosity of the
companions so everyone was curious at this point. Is it a sunnah to say three Amin three times as you ascend the member, what do we take from this? So finally they asked the Prophet sallallahu I think it was salam why he said Amin and also la slice and I'm says attorney Jibreel Jibreel ra Salam came to me and Gibreel alayhi salam says Ya Mohammed O Muhammad Rahim and four May his nose be stuffed in the dirt or may his nose be pushed into the dirt? You know and the image that here is hollow hustler that this man is a loser. Right his faces in the dirt Rocky Mountain full May his nose be put into the dirt man Mara Alayhi Ramadan, the one who Ramadan comes upon him some and Salah
and it goes away when I'm you for and he's not forgiven by ALLAH SubhanA
What's Allah mean? Jibreel Islam says to the Prophet slicin, I'm saying I mean so the prophets like some says, I mean, then he says what all the my info and me is knows be stuffed into the dirt, man, the character and the the one who has the Prophet slice Allah mentioned in his presence. And he does not say salawat on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he doesn't say sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And he looks at an abuse of Allah or us, Allah, Allah, the prophets lie some is mentioned in front of him. And this is a man that you are to love. This is a man that did things for you that no other human being has done for you. And you don't have the decency to say sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam, you don't have the decency to at least send Salawat upon him send prayers and blessings upon him as a means of gratitude as a means of making your app for the prophets like Selim that Allah elevates him for everything that he did for you, while the man and may Allah Subhana Allah to Allah stuff his nose in the dirt, a person whose parents reach old age in his presence, and he does not enter Jannah as a result of that.
Yeah, Mohammed Amin, oh Mohammed slice and I'm saying Amin and the Prophet slice and I'm said Amin, and this hadith is narrated in Timothy, it's also narrated by Don and others with slightly different wordings. The point is the prophet slice Salaam is being told to make dua against three different types of people. Now, how do you reconcile the fact that Allah Subhana Allah Allah says that this is the man from Allah, it was salam as Eason Ali, Hema I need to hurry son Alikum bill me Nina Oh for him. This is a man sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that empathizes with you. This is a man that cares deeply about you. This is a man that is Everly compassionate with you. Right, who cares so much for
the believers? This is the same man sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who when he's knocked into a ditch on the day of hurt says Hola, hola familia call me for it. Now malaria and pneumonia. Oh ALLAH forgive my people. They don't know any better. This is a man sallallahu alayhi wa salam who on the worst day of his life and life still wanted good for the people that stoned him. How is it that the prophets lie Selim says Amin against a person and the earner might say because if Gibreel Alayhis Salam is making a drought and this is very severe here to think about. I mean, Gibreel is the one making the drought and the profit slice on him is the one saying mean, how severe of a drought is
this? If Djibouti and it his Salam is the one making this drought, then certainly it's not by injustice, certainly, it's divinely inspired. It's from Allah subhanho wa taala. And if the prophets like Selim is saying, mean, to the Gibreel it has Salam is making, then it's certainly something that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah is making as well. And there's a purpose to it, there's a great wisdom to it. And if you look at these three things, but Ramadan comes upon you and you're not forgiven, that involves the right of Allah subhanaw taala upon you, this is the relationship between you and Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And the second one is the relationship between you and the
Prophet salallahu. Salam, the right of the Prophet sallallahu I think it was salam upon you. And the third one is the right of your parents upon you. And Allah Subhana Allah Allah has frequently merged these rights together in the Quran, and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and so we're gonna go we're going to leave the Ramadan part, for the end of this hadith. Let's start with the one who the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is mentioned in his presence, and he does not say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now there are many different Hadith about Salawat one of them uttered Runa many Bucky, do you know who the stingy person is? And he said the auto Salah you know,
it's a person who withholds his money or someone that withhold something that he has and the profit slice and I'm says no, rather, it's someone who hears my name and does not invoke Salawat upon me. Now, we also know many different Hadith that mentioned rewards for saying Salawat right, whoever said Salawat on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Salah Allah, Allah Yashraj Allah subhanaw taala says Peace and blessings upon him 10 times, the Jabra, his sons, his Salawat upon him 10 times, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also is made to respond to the one who sends Salawat upon him and says, Well, I like to set up and upon you may be peace. Now, it's interesting to note
here, in this hadith, who's the one making dua against the person, it's Djibouti, and it has set up the same one who responds to Salawat with 10 prayers upon you, and who's the one saying I mean, it's the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the same one who when you actually do Salawat upon him
well respond upon you as well. And Allah subhanho wa taala, obviously is at the end of all of this. And so Allah azza wa jal Gibreel is Salam and the prophets like Selim all respond to your Salawat. And so now the DUA is being made against the person that does not even bring himself to do that. Now, what is the deeper meaning here? What is the greater meaning here? There is no human being in history,
who has done more for you then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you could argue your parents in some way, but even them, because what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave to you is more valuable than what your parents gave to you. What the prophets lie Selim brought to you is even more valuable, because it's its spiritual life. It is your life, it is the meaning of life, and what's the purpose of life without its meaning. So what the Prophet slicin I'm brought to you is even more valuable than what your mother did for you by bringing you into this world. Now, if you look at the right of the Prophet, slice, and I'm upon you, right to believe in Him, to believe him, sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam and everything that he says, to honor him to respect him to son Salawat upon him, the least of those rights is that when you hear his name you son Salawat upon what does that mean? You know, believing in the prophets, like some takes precedence over that, right? At least if you believe in Him, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you forget to say SallAllahu wasallam or you don't feel the tuck the ear of the prophets lie Selim, the right of the Prophet slice on upon you to the extent that you don't feel it, you know, naturally motivated to pray for him every time you hear of him. At least you believe in him. At least you understand why my auntie Corniel how're in what Allah
He knew that the prophets lie Selim does not speak out of his own accord, but rather everything he says to Allah Azza wa sallam is divinely inspired at least you get that? At least you understand that the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is binding upon you when it was a sunnah that was made mandatory. And even the Sunnah that was not made mandatory is to be honored and respected. But the very least right, is that at least when you hear his name, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you feel motivated to pray for him. And so when a person even withholds that, that most minimal, right, that smallest right from the profit slice, I'm upon him, you know, forget about the
incentives that Allah subhanaw taala has placed in doing so let's forget about your own destiny, right and how it affects but the fact that you don't feel indebted to the man salAllahu alayhi wa sallam to even make your app for him is a great sign of your own stinginess, and your own disregard for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam, it's not just that it's a habit that you got used to saying, it's not it's in your heart that every time you hear Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, every time you hear the name of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, your heart just naturally sends that message, go ahead and say salats upon her, because he means something to you, he blood
for you. He sweat for you. There were tears that were there. Now Subhanallah if you connect it to the last to the last part of this hadith, which is which is in regards to the parents where Allah subhana wa Tada says, in certain slot, that if they reach old age in your presence, King, Oklahoma as one of them reaches old age in your presence, or both of them fell out Taku Lahoma off. Don't even bring yourself to say off to them, or roll your eyes at them, or disrespect them. It's not necessarily that action that makes it so severe. Right? It's the fact that you disregard your parents to a point that you were brought to that level that you were brought to that expression. And
so in the case of the messenger, sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, it's a lack of expression that Allah and the messenger slice Allah Mark condemned. In the case of your parents. It's that expression in particular, that you brought yourself to such a low point, that when you when you see your parents in their old age, you have the nerve to actually respond with disregard. You it's not the word of the word off doesn't mean anything there. There are words that are far worse than oath. But it's the fact that you disregard them. And so the disregard of a loss of Hannah hearts Allah is shown when Ramadan comes upon you. And you don't do the bare minimum in Ramadan, where Allah subhanaw taala has
shut the gates of hellfire and open the gates of paradise and multiplied our deeds beyond imagination. You don't do the bare minimum that Allah subhanaw taala forgiven. And when you hear the name of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam. You don't do the bare minimum of at least feeling a sense of debt and go
attitude to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to bring yourself to send Salah watch upon him. And then finally, the parents and we'll get back to Ramadan and the meaning of Ramadan in this. When it comes to the Prophet slice Allah, he did for you what he did, but you know what? You didn't see the Prophet slice on you've never met him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we read about his blood, sweat and tears. We read about the profit slice of them and we read about the profit slice someone thought if we read about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. In Medina when he was passing away, and as he sees his companions praying, we read about the profit slice and I'm saying home is Lonnie
home, Bobby, they are my beloved ones. They are my brothers Alladhina amanu will be well I'm your only those who believed in me even though they hadn't seen me. We read about the Prophet sallallahu I think it was salam. When he says Almighty Almighty, my alma, my alma, all of that is in text. But when it comes to your parents, you've seen your parents struggle for you. You've seen your parents care for you. You've seen your parents cry for you. You've seen your parents sacrifice for you. You've seen your parents give up things that they wanted to do or things that would have been in their benefit for the sake of your benefit. You've seen all of that, and particularly in this
hadith, and where Djibouti Ratan Salaam is making dua against the individual.
It's a person who seen his parents get old. And Allah subhanaw taala. He stresses that in sort of Islam, yeah, blue Rana Allah's Pantai says it's already reached a huduma kibble. It's already reached old age has reached them. So by necessity, you're also not a child anymore. You know, it's excusable to an extent, when a child doesn't recognize what the parents have done for them. It's not an excuse when you're a grown man, when you're a grown woman, when you yourself, maybe are a parent now.
And you know exactly what struggle they've gone through for you. And if you weren't paying attention when you were going up, well, now you're in that same struggle, so you should have naturally clicked, or you should have naturally said, You know what, this is what they did for me. You've grown old enough now, to recognize what they've done for you. You've grown old enough now to see them dependent upon you, as you were once dependent upon them. And still you don't have the decency
to to at least treat them with respect and honor and gratitude. You don't have the decency to not disrespect them for all of the years of what they've done for you. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says to us in Hadith, from Abu Dhabi, Allah Tada and Hakala salatu salam and while he do also to Abba, Bill, Jana for our daddy kebab, our hope that the parent is the center gate, it is the middle door of paradise l subtle, above agenda when you when you say that it is the middle gate of Jannah it means it's the main gate. What that means is if you want to get to Jannah in another way, you've got to take a side door. That's the message that the prophets lysozyme is giving to you.
It is the central gate, we'll call Barbara bukanlah. Taboo. Illa Yeah, we've been worried here son, Allah subhanaw taala connected it to worship to Him. It's the central gate to that agenda. And the Prophet slicin said and while it meaning your father and your mother, your father or your mother, they are your middle gate to Jannah the prophets like Selim says so it's up to you whether you lose it or you preserve it. It's your call at the end of the day. Even Ambassador the law of China I knew he also says in a narration other Muslims call mom in Muslim law Hawaii, Dina used to be who la Hema Mark Ducey been in LA Fattah Hala who ilaha illa Fattah Hola Hola. Hola banal Jana there is no
Muslim who wakes up and he obeys Allah subhanaw taala regarding his parents, a Muslim who obeys the law regarding his parents, meaning he has both of them and he treats them both with honor except that ALLAH subhanaw taala Fattah Hola Hola. Hola. Babymetal Jamna Allah open for him to gates to jump. We're in Canada he then go ahead and if it's only one gate than one gates, what in our mobile huduma Lam yoga Allahu Anhu hatha yoga and and if he makes them angry, Allah subhanho wa Taala would not be pleased with them until those parents are pleased with him.
Think about that notion think about what's being said here. Your gate to Jana. You anger them unjustly? And I have to underline here unjustly because if your parents wronged you in a way that they were on
Just to you, then then, or they're angry with you for something that you did for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala thought and you must lucre, Marcia till Harlock. There is no obedience to a creation, what it means disobeying the Creator, if they're mad at you, because you come, because you've come to Jim Isola, or they're mad at you because you have to practice, you know, an essential aspect of your faith or they're mad at you because you did something that you were supposed to do, you fulfilled the right of someone else upon you as well, then that's not what's being said here. But when you anger your parents without justice, which is the majority of the time, ALLAH SubhanA,
Allah, Allah would not be pleased with you, until you please that. And that's, that's a frightening notion here. You know, they they have no thought but some of the allowance out I know, when he lost his mother, he cried at the janazah. And he said, Allah subhana, WA Tada, shut one of those gates for me, Woe to me, if I don't run to the other gate. Well, to me, if I don't run to the other gate, I've got one gate still open. And naturally, if you're in a room, and you've got two doors out of that room, and one door shuts, it should, it should set off a sense of urgency inside of you that the other door is eventually going to shut as well. And you're naturally going to go closer to the
other door. Unfortunately, with some people, one parent dies and they cry about the way that they treated them. And they still don't treat the one that's alive with any respect, Your Honor. Subhanallah we don't learn our lesson. We still disregard
these are your central gates to Allah Jana. So respect them and honor them. You know, even I basadi Allah Tada. I know as well. So Pamela, this is an amazing Hadith from Allah, upon the assault of the low tide and who he said that a man came to my bustle the low tide animal, and he basically confessed to a major crime and in one narration that major crime is murder. He confessed to a major crime. And he says for Henley, Toba, halimun Toba, do I have any way of being forgiven from Allah Subhana Allah to the question that had been above us in return, he says omocha HYAH
is your mother alive?
You know, what does this have to do with what he just confessed to? Says omocha hires your mother alive? So he says no. So I've been I busted the law and he says, then repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala as sincerely as you can and draw as close to him as you can. Now the man left and a boss said I went to my boss all the low tide. I know when I says Lima, and I said to him, Lima salsa and hayati OMA, why did you ask him about the life of his mother? We must sell to sell someone higher to me what's the point of asking him about his mother it has nothing to do with the situation. And he said in the
Amazon acaba it Allah He I saw a gentleman building worried, he said, because I can't think of an action that is more closer to Allah subhanaw taala either that brings a person closer to Allah subhanaw taala and is more beloved to Allah subhanaw taala than honoring one's mother.
Now how do we bring it back to this hadith in particular that we've covered today?
You know, a man came to the Prophet slicin I'm in a hadith from Abdullah Abdullah, and then also the low tide.
And he comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And he says to the Prophet slice, and I'm that I've come to make Hyjal with you to go out with you. This isn't a kid that went home and joined ISIS in Syria. This is a kid that came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I'm going out with you.
And I love my parents, Craig.
And the words of the prophets lie Selim to that man Subhanallah are so profound. And this is his along with the Prophet slice. This is jihad and FISA beat Allah with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I mean, it doesn't get any better than that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and the prophets lysozyme says it or Jerry they go back to the to them for a Kuma come out of Quito. Make them laugh, like you made them cry. Make them laugh, like you made them cry. And Subhan Allah, if you think about what the prophets lysozyme is saying, to make them laugh as you made them cry. We have years and years and years of making our parents cry. At least when they reach old age, make
them laugh for all those years that you made them cry, replace all those moments of sorrow and sacrifice with moments of happiness, show them that the sacrifice was worth, show them that they're making you dependent upon that. Now in the situation where they're dependent upon you that they will receive the same axon from you that they show to you. Show them that you're willing to make them love, show them that you're willing to make them happy. Show them that you're considerate. And that's what God has set up was saying in his new app that a
person has parents that reach old age in His presence. And he still doesn't enter Jannah because it's so easy. It's much easier than with the Prophet slice and I'm who you've just read about, with your own parents who you saw do all of those amazing things for you who probably still cry for you even in their old age, even as you're an adult, they still treat you like a child, even if you're 50 years old, because they love you.
And you see that and still just your pure fitrah inside of you does not bring you to a point of responding with love and affection and care and compassion. So we ask Allah subhana wa to add it to make us the people that make our parents pleased. And that make Allah Subhana Allah to Allah please. And that at least have the dignity to say salawat on the prophets Allah Allah Allah He was southern when we hear his name and that followed his sunnah and that pleased him as well allotment Amin Akula holy ha That was tougher Lord, you will accompany Saudi and Muslim investor Pharaoh in the hallway for wine.
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen what are the one that you learn a lot? I mean, will ask people tune in with Japan Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Abdi Kota Sudhakar Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Are there any he will cite him you will send them to see him and cathedra your brothers and sisters Subhan Allah the main part of the Hadith was the Ramadan part.
And time has escaped me so I'll just summarize this inshallah to Allah maybe in the future, explain it a little bit more. But Ramadan enters upon a person, Djibouti and it his Salam says love Lima and for me his nose be stuffed with dirt, the one who Ramadan enters upon, and he's not forgiven by ALLAH SubhanA wa chat. Why such a severe there
because during the rest of the year, if your desires kept you away from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah you should have been able to find Allah subhanaw taala through those desires anyway. And you should have recognized that pleasing Allah subhanaw taala is greater than pleasing yourself anyway. But in Ramadan where Allah subhanaw taala removes those desires from you where Allah subhanaw taala removes the distractions from you and you still don't find Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. That's a shame.
And in every single night as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Yun Zhi Rabona Tabata, Kota Allah Kulu Laila Allah subhanaw taala descends every single night Illa sama dunya to the lowest heaven in the last third of the night in a way that's befitting to him. And Allah says many other Rooney first ajibola, who's going to call upon me so I can answer his dua, man, yes, Ellone for our player who who's going to ask of me so that I can give him one minute stuff you don't need for your Allah and who's seeking my forgiveness so that I can forgive him. That's every single night of the year. And it should have been enough motivation for us to stand up and pray to Allah subhanho wa
Taala every single night of the year, but at least in Ramadan, where there's the incentive of Laylatul Qadr as well. You don't mean Alfie Shahar. Will you not stand up and call upon Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and beg for his forgiveness and ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah? Will you not do that even in Ramadan? And Allah's Mercy is so great that a person who killed 99 and then 100 People could be forgiven outside of Ramadan? What then of Ramadan? The Mercy of Allah Subhana Allah Allah who's already the most merciful outside of Ramadan is even more expanded in Ramadan. How could you miss out on that Mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada in Ramadan. And so what is your out of Djibouti
Radha his Salam is teaching us is that Allah subhana wa Tada has given you three opportunities with three parties that are the most important in your life, the first of them Allah, with this month of Ramadan to get close to him and to change your life and to push yourself further. And the second of them with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with a simple phrase Allahu wa Salatu was Salam ala Nabina Muhammad, and with your parents, at least when they reach old age that you don't mistreat them and that you honor them, and that you show them that affection and that compassion that they showed to you. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to forgive us for our shortcomings to him to the
messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and to our parents and to any one of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala We ask Allah subhanaw taala to have mercy upon us we ask Allah subhana wa Tada that this month not pass except that he has forgiven us and that this month not pass except that we've caught Leila to the quarter, and that this month not pass except that we've completed the recitation of the Quran and not this month not pass except that we've quit the sins and the addictions that we brought into this month. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to send his peace and blessings upon the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be with the believers all over the world that are
struggling and striving this Ramadan and to help them overcome their difficult
