This episode talks about verse no.58 from Surat Yunus, tenth juzz, where Allah SWT says the rejoice we experience in Allah and his messenger SAW must be far above and greater than the happiness experienced upon any worldly possession. A story about humbleness of a prominent ruler, Umar Ibn Khattab RA.
Santa Monica, Americans live with a cat. So dear brothers and sisters, welcome back to people of Oregon, where every night I share with you a story of how one of our pious predecessors interacted with the poor. And so, tonight is Hannah, lots of beautiful example once again of honorable hottub, or the law of China and in the feed off of Omaha, probably a long time, I know in his Caliphate, there were, you know, the almost spread all over the world. And somehow Allah Bates will not, you know, the Treasury was always overfilled and they were, you know, there was always more wealth, and more money and you know, more more sheep and more cattle and whatever it may be than there had ever
been in the oma. So our model, the last time we saw this and Amir mahatama, the low angle as a means of keeping himself humble, what he would do was when you know, when the different animals came that were paid as a cat, and that were, you know, that were spoiled, or whatever they may have been, instead of assigning, you know, people to go and clean those animals, I'm going to go hop out of the longtime home, the kalief, ameerul, momineen, Subhana, Allah, the commander of the believers, he'd go into the, you know, into the pen, and he'd start to clean after all of these animals. He'd have his towels, and Subhanallah you know, even ambassador, a lot of time I know, it says one time I'm
gonna hop on the line, I was cleaning the animals with it with a towel, and the towel got dirty, it was soaked with dirt. He took off his shirt and he started to use his shirt. Can you imagine the you know, the ruler of the greatest nation on Earth Subhanallah taking off his shirt using it to clean animals with it. So one time there was an ambassador or one of the companions that had come from from Iraq and he saw our model the allot of time, and we're cleaning these animals. So he said, you know, you don't have to do that. Yeah, me don't want minions that you can have someone else do that. And it'll be a lot of time. I know. He threw the towel at him. And he told him Come join me. So he
made him get in the pen and start cleaning those animals as well. Now, in this particular incident, while on model, the allowed time who was counting the camels and camels were the most you know, the most valuable of all animals, especially in that time for journeys and whatever they may be, and even in the laws of sacrifice, while he and this man we're counting the camels. The man was absolutely astonished. how Allah you know, they lost count of how many camels they had within the treasury of the oma and Amato, the Allahu anhu as he was counting the camel while not all the time and who was saying Alhamdulillah Allah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah he to Allah all praises me to
Allah, All praises be to a lost count as a glorious and he would continue to say this Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah the man said to Amato, the Allahu taala, and who had a law him in the law. He said, I swear by a law that this is from the bounty of Allah and His mercy. And he was referring to this particular idea, the idea that we're covering tonight, which as soon as Yunus, verse 58, for Allah Subhana, Allah says, couldn't be the law, he will be raumati he forbids early kefalonia for who, who were hired on in the Maryland sea in the bounty of Allah and His mercy. Let them rejoice in that let them rejoice. It's better than all that they accumulate. So when the man
said that these camels are from the father of a loss of hundreds out of the bounty of Allah, His mercy, Amato, the Allahu anhu says kidnapped Lisa have it he said, he said, No, you've lied. That's not what the what a loss of Hannah Montana is talking about, he says, but rather have them in Maryland. This is from what people accumulate some handle on what was honorable hopital the law and we're talking about when Allah says in Surah Yunus will be followed the law he will be documentary he let people rejoice in the bounty of a lot and his mercy. What a loss of Hannah Montana is talking about is the is the bounty of this religion and the mercy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
or Islam and Eman something of that sort meaning what rejoice in Allah rejoice in the religion rejoice in the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam let the happiness you feel when you have the deen of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah be greater than the happiness that you felt when you got your new house or you got your new car or you got your job and all the law no imagine he's not even speaking about a personal gain. He's speaking about a game for the oma it's a good game. But he's saying but what Allah is talking about in the end is far greater than anything in this world. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about the blessing of Islam, the blessing of Eman And Allah is
telling us in that we should rejoice, we should rejoice and Alon our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we should feel great happiness especially in the month of Ramadan. How great did you feel when Ramadan entered? How awesome Will you feel inshallah to Allah when you catch later to God, that feeling should be far greater that feeling of happiness should be far greater than any moment of happiness you'll ever have in life. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us his father and his life mentor grants His bounty in his mercy and to give us the best of this world and the next alumna, I mean, does that mean low Hydra inshallah Tada. I will see you next time for our series.
