So you've been seeing the Prophet slicin from afar. You've seen him in Juma. you've prayed behind him. sallallahu wasallam. You've seen him in the battles. You've seen him in the difficult times. You've seen them in the celebrations and the feasts and their aid. And you've been in some small gatherings with him, but now you want to invite the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to your house. So what should you know? If you're going to walk up to the Prophet slice at him and say, Jada sola, will you come to my house?
First and foremost, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that I will accept the invitation of anyone, even if all they have to serve me is the arm or the foot of a sheep. So you don't have to worry about not having enough to serve the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam or that being a factor if you're going to invite the Prophet slice alum, no matter what you're serving him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will come. Another thing is that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would not only accept the invitations of a certain class of people, and so the Allahu tada and who he says that will suit Allah salallahu alayhi wa sallam used to visit the sick. He used to attend the Jenna is
used to attend the funerals. He used to ride on donkey sallallahu Sallam and he used to accept the invitations of everyone, even those who were enslaved. So it's kind of like imagine someone who is a slave in a society. And he invites the Prophet slice of the Prophet slice and will accept the invitation. So honestly the law on who is saying this was the nature of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And the way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, and so just like when it came to visiting the sick, he did not care if this was a powerful person or not. And he attended all of the Gentiles all the funerals, and he wrote some Allah how it was some even on the most humble of
animals. The prophets license accepted an invitation, no matter how humble the invitation was. So you come home, and you say, well, so last night, Solomon's coming to dinner, what do we serve this man it his slot to us, and we know that he does not eat extravagantly, but we want to give him something that he likes it his slot was set up. So for one the profit slice him liked cold, sweet drinks out of his lotto snom so he loved 11 he loved yogurt drinks, the Lola Heisman, he loved cold water that he would sweeten with honey it his slot was set on this was a hot desert climate. So the profit slice alums preferences in that regard, reflect that it is Salatu was Salam. And the prophets
I send him was very simple in that he liked to have a bread of sorts sallallahu wasallam and he liked to rub it with something he liked to put something on that bread and whatever it was that the Prophet sly some could dip that bread and he was pleased with it Salalah how it was done him so if you had honey the profit slice on loved honey, if you had date paste that was one of the favorite foods of the profits little lice on them in haste. If you had only oil the profit slice on love that and some how long even vinegar you know the profits of the law how it was set up said what a good paste vinegar is if all you had was vinegar and he took some bread sallalahu it was so dumb to rub
and to put vinegar on it the Prophet slice alum would eat it it his Salatu was set up when it came to the lamb the Prophet sallallahu Sallam loved the shoulder of the lamb and that's why you have the famous hadith of it shall have the Allahu taala and her where she donated everything from the land except for the shoulder she said jasola I save this for you and the prophets lie Some said rather you gave away the shoulder in that you did not take the edge of the reward of the shoulder in southern charity because the prophets lie some love to give what he loved most it his salad was set up now when you serve the profit slice on food the profit slice alum would never criticize food nor
would he overpraise it right and that's from his other his o'clock from his mannerisms will allow it was sentiment some of their idiom that they say that one of the wisdoms of that is that if the profit slice and I'm would overpraise some food then if you did not get the overpraise for food, then you would think that something was wrong with it. So the profit slice and I was always grateful. He never dismissed food he never criticized food Salalah Why do some there's not one single narration of him criticizing food and at the same time the profit slice along with simply Thank you for the food so that he doesn't set a standard IE his salatu salam where you expect lots
of praise for the food. But if the prophets lie some liked your food then it was obvious right? And there's a particular Persian neighbor that the Prophet slice on had and he used to make a really good broth really good soup, and he used to give it to the profit slice of them sometimes and also less I'm loved it. So because he knew that the profit slice I'm like this very particular broth. He goes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he says Jada sutala come to my house and eat some of my soup. The profit slice alum he has it sold the Alo and he says well, Harvey Can she come to? He said no. So somehow the next day, he comes to the profit slice alum and he invites the profit
slicing them again. For soup the profit slice I'm said Can my wife come? He says no the profit slice I'm said that I'm okay I don't want to come so the third time he invites the Prophet sallallahu wasallam over to his house and after he invites the profit slice on the profit slice I'm says well how can I bring my wife and he says okay the profits licenses okay we're coming and remember no we're talking a lot he comments on this he said that the profit slice on disliked attending a special meal without it settled the Allahu tada Anna so if you're inviting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you invite his wife as well. And this was, again, a very unique way of the Prophet
slice, I'm showing the consideration that he had for his family. It has sought to a stamina society that really was not used to that. You also could expect that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would bring along with him. The sofa, the poor people that lived in the masjid, or the orphans or the hungry, the prophet size on them would always bring his posse and his posse sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the forgotten. And there is this beautiful narration as well. Because, you know, if you had him in your house of Allah Islam, wouldn't you want him to make your app for you? Right? I mean, at the end of the day, you've served him sallallahu wasallam. He's eaten your food, he said, Zach
mallow, Hira? you've established probably a new level of your relationship with him because you've had him in your house and he's eaten with you. sallallahu wasallam. But you'd want his new app, right? And you'd want him to pray in your house? Like how special is it to say that the Prophet slicin prayed in my house. And that's something so beautiful about him sallallahu wasallam that he knew that and so the prophets lie Selim would pray in people's homes so that they could feel that connection, and they would take that place as a Muslim love course. And they love that place. And so the alongside and who says so late to enter your team when fee baiting are helping the vessel Allah?
Why are you selling your own saline Hello foreigner. And so the Allahu anhu describes this, he says, I remember one time, the Prophet slicin was a guest in our home, and I prayed behind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam next to me was an orphan and behind us was on saline or the Allahu taala. And, of course, was the mother and so the Allah tada I know, and he even says, one time my grandmother maneka was the name of his grandmother, it'll be alongside and one time she invited the Prophet slicin them over, and she wanted the profits license eat from her food. So the profit slice, I'm obliged. And after the profit slice, on came the profit slice, I'm said, Let's pray together. So
I brought out this hafley if this one rug that we had, and it was old and beat up, and we prayed to rock eyes on it, and then the Prophet salallahu it was seldom left. So the prophets lie some would not just come to your house as a guest and develop a connection with you. But he would make sure that he blessed your house that you always felt that connection Salalah who it was in and whether he was physically present in your home or not. So
