Solomonic Americans photocathode the brothers and sisters, welcome back to people of color, where every night I share with you a story about how one of our pious predecessors interacted with an eye of the poor. And so the last two stories, we saw a woman that was just a random woman in the oma and we saw a great scholar. And you might ask yourself, you know, somehow, how is it that this woman was able to produce people that way? And the answer that I would say is that you know, what, the compassion that the scholars showed the willingness to teach the people and the willingness of the people to learn, was just outstanding. And this is a tradition that we take from the Prophet sly,

00:00:34--> 00:01:06

send them to his companions, and then the companions to the library and how they pass down that knowledge from generation to generation. And in essence, a child could sit in, you know, in any of the Holocaust and a child could could really benefit and ask the questions they need to ask. And they would actually love their teachers, they would love their Messiah. And so the story that I'm going to share with you today, it's a teacher student experience. And it's more about that experience than the actual I have, because of how knowledge shows you the beautiful way of interaction that our tradition teaches us. So this is a narration from our beloved that had a lot to

00:01:06--> 00:01:44

add. Not the companion, but the ptab Berry, and he's telling the story about himself as a child, and he says, When I was a child, I used to go and sit in the hallowed halls of different companions, and some of the senior Tetbury and some of the senior predecessor or some of the senior successors to the companions. And one of the people that I sat in his halaqa was, was cabinet above or cabinet above, Rahim, Allah tala. And Karen was a very interesting man. He was one of the prominent rabbis that converted to Islam. He was a rabbi from Yemen, and he accepted Islam around the time of Earth, Manuel de longtown. And he never met the prophets of Allah, it was sudden, but he became a senior

00:01:44--> 00:02:24

scholar in this religion, and that's the beauty of this religion is that, you know, scholars from other faiths came into it and became scholars within it, as well. So Karen is giving this lecture and he said he was doing Abdullah says he was doing this Tafseer of sorbitol ambia. And he came to verse number 20, which is in the Jews that we're talking about. And the verse is talking about the angels. And Allah says, You said beehoon and Layla wouldn't live to that the angels glorify Allah, day and night, and they never get tired, they are never fatigued. So how to love they're constantly saying Subhana Allah, they're constantly worshiping Allah subhana wa tada without ever needing to

00:02:24--> 00:03:02

take a break to eat or drink, never feeling any form of desire. And they they actually take pleasure their pleasure is in glorifying and worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. So I'm the law says that when he said that I blurted out in the middle of the lecture, I says, I'm not usually at home, and it has to be held calamari salad to what I said, but CIF, you know, how is it possible that they're able to constantly do to speak, they're able to constantly glorify Allah Subhana Allah, when they also have to deliver messages, and they also have to record deeds, and they also have to do certain actions and they also speak How is it that they're constantly doing to speak How can a law say law

00:03:02--> 00:03:39

you have to run? So cab he says, Where is the young man that said that? So some of the seniors in the in the halaqa, they pointed out Abdullah and they said that you know, that they said that this young man is from Denmark, the mo pilot that he's a young man from, from always from the tribal level, Abdullah McLennan. So cab got up and he started to approach to approach Abdullah Abdullah says as he was coming at me, I mean, you can only imagine if the chef is walking towards you, and you interrupted in the lecture, he's probably you know, that time going to take a stick or something like that. That's the image that we have at least he says, instead, he came to me for a cup barassi

00:03:40--> 00:04:21

but he kissed me on the forehead from a colony and he said to me very compassionately, you have been a year in who jalila Motors be camera, Jelena Coronavirus? He said, Oh my son, Verily, Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah has given them to be or has made to speak to them the act of glorifying him the same way he's made breathing to you. And he said, Elisa to kalama, entertainer, don't you speak, and at the same time you breathe? And so I nodded my head? And I said, Yes. And he says, what time she will entertain us. And at the same time, you're able to walk but you're still breathing. And I nodded my head. And I said, Yes. He said, likewise, the angels are able to carry out what Allah

00:04:21--> 00:04:52

subhanho wa Taala has given to them. And they're constantly in a state of despair. And they don't stop the same way that you don't stop breathing, though. You're doing multiple actions. So Subhanallah it's a beautiful example, not just because of the explanation of the eye, but again, the tradition and the way that it was passed down. How compassionate really we should be when we're teaching younger people when we're teaching our kids and when we're teaching our younger brothers and sisters in the oma about the religion, we should show that compassion, and we should, you know, take their questions and we should do our best to answer them and not make them feel like they asked

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

the question they shouldn't have asked. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us that same tenderness and compassion and to make us learn enough in the religion to where we can teach others

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

benefit ourselves and benefit others along the mean Charla tada I will see you all tomorrow dissolvable Hydra and listen mid to late
