Welcome to another session of the Sahaba and the Sahaba series where we talk about the lives of the great companions are true heroes, masha Allah, and with the

00:01:24 --> 00:01:57

purpose of gaining insight and lessons so that we may be inspired to walk in their footsteps. Bismillah today's companion is none other than Abdullah ibn Umar Radi Allahu Allah. And now before I start off with his story, please remember to support East Plano Islamic center through this pandemic through your generous donations by Flo following the links that are coming up at the bottom of your screen. Now coming back to our session, Abdullah bin Omar,

00:01:58 --> 00:02:47

member of the Quraysh tribe and the son of the great Omar ready Allah Juan. If we pick the topic of amo Rebbi Allah Juan, we would continue for days almost Rebbi hola Juan. The second Khalifa of Islam is the father of Abdullah ibn Amr. He accepted Islam his father are accepted Islam in the sixth year of Prophet help, and it is said that Abdullah bin Omar he accepted Islam the same time right as his father did, which is the sixth year of prophethood. It was also reported that all mobiola One at the time, was married to three he had three wives. Just one of his wives accepted Islam and that was Zoey. Ben mother owned like I said, if we were to talk about automobile number one, we would

00:02:47 --> 00:03:19

continue for days but unfortunately, we do not have much information about Abdullah bin armors mother, they have been mother own except for the fact that she was the sister of another great Sahabi or small urban mother own. And it is also reported that she may have passed away before migration but she also accepted Islam the same time or whether your loved one did. So she was the mother to Abdullah Norma Hafsa bento Alma and Abdurrahman Ivana armar

00:03:20 --> 00:04:09

Abdullah bin Omar clearly was not born into Islam, but we can for sure say that he was raised in a snap he was raised in a household where the members were practicing faith where faith was a lived in reality. Of course, his father is one of the most significant he was one of he played the most significant role in establishing Islam as a faith. Now, Abdullah Abdullah Omar he is known to have accompanied his father from a very young age and when he was born, a year or two after revelation began, so in the sixth year when the Almighty Allah one accepted Islam since then, he was reported to have accompanied his father to almost all the gatherings gatherings that were attended by the

00:04:09 --> 00:04:57

likes of Abu Bakr Arabia law one or Ceman read the hola Hawaiian, Almeida the hola Juan and of course, resource sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam himself. So he was part from a very young age, he was part of those gatherings and he had the opportunity to observe Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in such close proximity, in such an intimate manner that many other above villas, were not able to even the length of his companionship with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is much longer because it's much longer than any of the other above villas. So I'm delighted the nominator said that he would accompany his father to all the gatherings but anytime on over the law one would forget to

00:04:57 --> 00:05:00

bring or would not bring up the law to again

00:05:00 --> 00:05:47

othering with our social Allahu Allahu wa salam the soul actually sent all over the Allah one back to get him such was that relationship and this clearly shows that we're so some Allahu Allahu wa salam had a fondness for a little of their love from a very young age. It is also reported that Abdullah bin Omar he migrated before his father to Medina, and he was present at the time off brother, he was present at the time of a hub, meaning he had volunteered himself for better and he volunteered himself for a hug as well, because so sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, as famously as known, did not allow him to participate or did not permit him to participate like he did with many others

00:05:47 --> 00:06:32

in his age group for brother or a hug due to their young age. The first bottle that are delighted and honored that he himself married that he gets to participate in is the battle of hunt duck, which takes place in the fifth year of Hijra. It is the time when the coalition forces the Zab that was formed with Benoit San the Quraysh and the banana V and they were headed towards Medina to attack Medina. That's the time of the live and armor actually got a chance to fight a real battle. And after that he was part of every major incident, every major event and every major battle that takes place within the lifetime offer so summon la Fulani, he was selling, he participates in the Treaty

00:06:32 --> 00:06:49

of Abia. He is present at the time of beato Ridwan, he is there at the time of Mecca. He participates in the Battle of her name Martha and then he also is present at the farewell Hodge of resorts and Allahu Allahu wa salam.

00:06:50 --> 00:07:33

Abdullah bin Ahmed after the death of Rasul sal Allahu Allahu wa salam also participates in the Battle of your milk and by the CME. Having said that, it is important to note that Abdullah is Under Armour. He kept away during his lifetime from all the political crisis's that had gripped the Muslim ummah, the first fitna, the second fitna, at the time of osmangazi Allah one at the time of aluva, the Allah one, it is reported that Abdullah bin Omar he kept a very neutral position he did not belong to any camp. Now, that is not to say that he did not defend a Sahabi when anyone spoke something incorrect about a particular companion like for example, in the case of our smuggler, the

00:07:33 --> 00:08:22

Allah when it is reported that he did everything to defend or say everything to defend or slander the Allah one. So his his his reluctance, and his decision to stay away from engaging in political matters should not be taken as he was just silent. He was not silent wherever he needed to defend verbally even physically like when the rebels had laid siege on the house of arson Andrade Allah when he was there guiding was not ready. Or the Allah one he just didn't decide. He just decided not to take any particular sides after the death of us man read the Allah one. And another fact about Abdullah even Omar, which is so beautiful is that he did not accept to taking a position in any of

00:08:22 --> 00:09:08

the philosophers in the philosopher offers Mongolia North line or in the philosophy of Ali Radi Allahu Osman robiola, one actually wanted him to be appointed as the governor of Medina, right as that's think about it such a high status such a high rank, he insisted that he be appointed as the governor of Medina as the quality of Medina that are beloved in the army. He pleaded with him, he begged with Him, not to appoint him to that position not to consider him for that position, and he continued to beg him and tell us man gave and but man did ask him Your father was the call the so what's what's wrong with being away once you accept this position? At that time, he gave a very

00:09:08 --> 00:09:09

intelligent reply.

00:09:10 --> 00:09:53

He said that while my father was the Javi, and he had received sallallahu alayhi wa salam to refer to right when he when he would judge in Madras he had received some Allahu Allahu wa salam to refer to undersuit sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had Gibreel to refer to where am I gonna go to? So that's one of the reasons he gave us to why he chose not to take that position. He was also asked by Aida de la horn to take the position offer governorship in Sham at the time off the philosopher or for alira The Allahu Allah and I live at the Allah one was actually more firm than or Ceman were the Allah hawan. He was like no, I'm not going to take no for an answer was pretty much that that you

00:09:53 --> 00:09:59

have to take this position to the point where it was mine he could not as an SRE, I believe and I'm aware he couldn't

00:10:00 --> 00:10:44

Not he could not convince me anymore not to consider him. He actually, at night one of the nights he decided to just climb on his horse and run away from Medina into Makkah, because he knew that if you went into haram, that anyone who arrives at haram is saved now no one can pursue him there. He actually went to Harlem to escape what to escape leadership. What was he begging us, Monroe the Allahu or not to consider him for leadership. What was he running away from at the time of the laughter of Ali's of the Allah one leadership? You know, just think about it just reflect on that aspect of his personality and how people these days, they just vie for positions of leadership, but

00:10:44 --> 00:11:36

true leaders. This is basically how they look at it because they understand the nature of leadership. Leadership is not a position of authority. It's a position of accountability. It's a position of responsibility and every sincere believer is aware of the fact that if he is placed in a position of leadership, if he is leading a community if he is leading a group of people, that for sure he is going to be asked about it. At the layer below bin Omar is also known as one of the most prolific Hadith narrators second to Abu Hurayrah for the Allah one. He narrated about over 2600 a hadith and they're spread over Behati Muslim Mr. Murthy in all the the assets are basically so he's

00:11:36 --> 00:11:45

Hadith are also mentioned them are mentioned in other below flood like most of the Hadees that are mentioned are double mouflon the book that talks about air tickets right.

00:11:46 --> 00:12:35

Most of them if you go through the pages of five double Milstead you will notice that they are from Myanmar or the Allah hawan. So it is reported by Aisha Radi Allahu anha that she did not see anyone or she did not find anyone more careful than if there are more wild relating the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one of the other companions also mentioned that he was the most Aza Yanni he was the most cautious that Yazeed fee wala Yan was like He did not add to it. Neither did he take away from it. He reported it or he narrated it, as is now was of no honors caution when he was repeating the words of Russell's sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Before we go into

00:12:35 --> 00:13:21

so this is basically what I wanted to do this session is I wanted to summarize briefly his life, right? And then I want to, I want it to talk about one or two, depending on how much time allows us at least two aspects of his personality. There's so much right that we can take from this great personality, but I really wanted to highlight at least two of his characteristics or two facets of his personality, one being his piety, which is unmatched his devotion, his devotion to the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala he was the obod of the sahaba. Since when they say that he since his young age, right. And like I said, it is unmatched his piety, his water, water and meaning his

00:13:21 --> 00:14:15

consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala in staying away from the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala in staying away from not just haram, but in staying away from something that might be haram. It is exemplary. It is Naturalis. So in sha Allah, I'll talk a little bit about that. But before that, just to conclude the summation of his life. He he lives he's one of the Sahabas who lived the longest, right? He lived after 73 Hijri right up to 73. After 73 years after the death of Russell sal Allahu Allahu wa salam, he was 83 years of age and just listen to what he said in his deathbed. So why he was breathing his last he says, My Assa Isla che in min Adonia I do not have any regrets

00:14:15 --> 00:15:00

of leaving this dunya Illa Allah Allah except for three matters that you will be missing him when he leaves this dunya one is them on Harada it's the it's the desire to quench my thirst meaning what? The fast off the fasting that he used to regularly keep while he was while while he was engaged in his daily routine from NASA, who was the freed slave the author acknowledged that he reports in most of his narrations are accurate. Most of the narrations about it now are actually from NASA. So he mentioned mafia mentions that if you're online, he would always fast when he was a resident right? The only time he would been fast was when he was traveling. So that was

00:15:00 --> 00:15:41

is how he maintained his days. Right. But that was his routine. So that's what he's saying on his deathbed that he's going to be missing fasting. The second thing that he says is mokaba to mean that I will miss the striving during the night and what is he referring to the hijab, when we discuss the piety, Inshallah, we'll get to a very beautiful Hadith as to explaining how or when he started to pray the hundreds and how he kept on with it for the rest of his life till the last moment and why he is in his death. But this is the remorse that he's expressing that when he leaves this denier, he is not going to miss anything from this dunya except that the fact that he used to fast here and the

00:15:41 --> 00:16:24

second the striving of the night used to wake up at night, and he used to do that the Hedgehog, Stan stand in a worship of Allah subhanho wa taala. And the third point like we said, he was not politically involved and human tanned neutrality throughout the threatens of Islam during his lifetime, right. But when he is dying, he mentioned what a minimum Oh, cotton and metal barrier, and it is, I regret that I did not fight the rebellious groups and he's referring to the fitna that takes place in a time of her judging yourself. Right. It's so it seems like there was some regret okay, that he did not speak up that maybe he should have said more, that the stance that he took,

00:16:24 --> 00:17:14

maybe was not the most correct, whatever it is, but these are the three things that he mentioned as he is breathing his last and he is passing on to the to to his eternity. Now, like I said, He died at the age of 83 and the Sahaba that lived the most, he is one of the most copious narrators of Hadith second to Abu Haneda. And I think one of the reasons that he was able to do this was because that he was able to collect so many Hadees was because he had direct access to resources. Allahu Allahu wa salam to His Father, right, which we saw when we're talking about his childhood. And also he had direct access to receive sal Allahu Allahu wa salam to His private space through his sister

00:17:14 --> 00:17:56

Hafsa. Right. Hafsa was the mother of the believer she was married to receive sal Allahu Allahu wa salam after Hijra. So these two avenues made it very easy for him to be in very close proximity with Russell's sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and also the fact that he was not politically engaged. Right. So he was, he was able to spend a lot of time collecting a hadith. And he lived so long, right, one of the longest living habits, right? So he lived so long that allowed him to interact with many Sahaba as many of the great companions and collect a Hadith from them. So these are the factors that actually enabled him to have the collection of a hadith that he did, which was not possible by many

00:17:56 --> 00:18:47

of the other about doulas. Now, moving on, like I said, we are so that was a brief summary of his life right. Now. Moving on. Like I said, I'm gonna highlight two characteristics or two facets of his personality. One is his piety, right? And the other is his zeal and his eagerness right, to adhere to the Sunnah of the source and Mr. Foley, who is something that everyone should have that right everyone should have that eagerness to adhere to the symbol for. So Sal, Allahu Allahu wa salam as much as possible, but he's on a different level. He also walked the footsteps of a system, Allahu Allah, who was salam sometimes literally, right? What do I mean by that? So the first one,

00:18:47 --> 00:19:33

we're going to talk about piety, and then we're gonna go to his at bat offer. So sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in order to talk about his piety. There is a statement by him where he says that one tear, one tear shed in the fear of Allah subhanaw taala in the hope of the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is more precious to me than the 1000 gold coins I spend in the way of Allah subhanaw taala. What does that show? What does that reflect sincerity? Right? It's the sincerity that he can express to Allah subhanaw taala it's the remorse and the regret that he can express to Allah subhanho wa taala, he says, is more is worth more to him than the 1000 dinars that he can spend. Sometimes your

00:19:33 --> 00:19:50

spending wealth is easier than actually maintaining consistency in our sincerity towards Allah subhanho wa taala. And he realized that that was a greater struggle, and he preferred that over spending wealth in the way of Allah subhanho wa taala. So that's one thing. Now

00:19:51 --> 00:19:59

there is this very beautiful Hadith which is mentioned in Behati. It's mentioned in Muslim with slight variations, about when

00:20:00 --> 00:20:03

Now he's, he himself mentioned that

00:20:06 --> 00:20:48

the men during the time of reso sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they used to go to the masjid. Right. And they used to report their dreams. Okay? They should tell their dreams to resort sal Allahu Allahu wa salam and resorts Allahu Allahu wa salam would then interpret those dreams for them. So, Abdullah ibn Omar, were the last line. He after migration, most of the times he slept in the masjid. He stayed in the masjid. Alright, so he would see this coming and going. And then he said to himself, once in the Hadith mentions this for the money to an arrow. Yeah. And I was longing to see a dream. Okay. Why, so that he can just go to the source and Mr. Farley here Salam have his one on

00:20:48 --> 00:21:38

one time, and have him interpret his dream, right. So he got his wish, finally got his wish. And what was his dream, like? His dream was where he saw that two angels came to him. And they took him to near jahannam. Right? They didn't take him to the fire. It took them to jahannam. And he reports that I saw the fire. All right. And I saw people in it that I recognized and immediately I began to seek refuge from the fire. Right? So those two angels carried him there. Then suddenly, there are third angel appeared, okay. And the third angel calmed him down by saying, don't worry, you're fine. And then his dream broke. He woke up right now. He was wishing he was designing to see a dream.

00:21:38 --> 00:22:23

Finally he gets his dream. But now he doesn't want to go directly to resourceful Allahu Allahu wa salam with this dream. So what does he do? He reaches out to Hafsa Radi Allahu anha. He tells her what he saw, and then have sat takes it to the so sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who hears the dream and this is basically what he says. Now Mr. Rajan Abdullah, how wonderful of a man is Abdullah? Now can you sell him in a lane? He should pray the hijab? The Hijab is the shield of the Hellfire right? So it is said that after Abdullah bin armor heard this interpretation, he did not leave a single night but he stood for tahajud It is said that he would wake up multiple times during the night and

00:22:23 --> 00:23:11

every time he woke up during the night he would do flush with it once not there. Like I said majority of the accounts that we have about Abner Omer were reported by NASA. So NASA said once nothing was asked how was the daily routine now? Yes, now like what did it normally do in history and then not very replied My UTF will not like you know, you will not be able to match up to it. It's impossible. For every Salah there was a fresh will do. And between every Salah to Salah there was recitation of the Quran. That was his schedule, right? Meaning he would start his recitation in the morning, and by the end, he would finish one recitation of the Quran. That was his dedication,

00:23:11 --> 00:23:23

amongst the other things that he did see, it's not like he just locked himself up and he was cut off from the world. Like I said, he participated in the Battle of Yamaki participated in the Battle of

00:23:24 --> 00:24:12

qadisiya, right. He played an active role when the siege had happened at the time of course man with the Allah one but his routine was such where he made sure that his nightly prayers, right, they were there it is sitting off. There are also reports that any time I've deleted the norm, or he would miss a share in JAMA, in order to make up for missing the Gemma Leila, he would stand up the entire night just to make up for that. That's Abdullah bin armor, whether your loved one, so his piety, his a Baba, the intensity of it, the expression of it is unmatched in comparison to many of the Sahaba as Subhan Allah and definitely an inspiration. It is also said that whenever like his father, this

00:24:12 --> 00:24:15

is something that he shared with his father, you know,

00:24:16 --> 00:24:57

back in those days, and this is something that is no longer mentioned. Back in those days, people want people who memorize the Quran with very few, okay, because of the effort that they took in memorization, and that effort included not just memorizing the pages, but also leaving those words right. So because of that fact, there were very few of Foz it said that honorably Allah and his father, he took about 14 years and some narrations mentioned seven years to memorize just Surah Baqarah. Right. So this is this is how they live their life. So one thing that is common between the father and the son was when almost read the law, one would come across ideas in the Quran that would

00:24:57 --> 00:24:59

talk about punishment.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:42

They would talk about Jahannam he would not be able to continue he would not be able to move but cry you will be overwhelmed with emotions tears just seeking refuge with Allah subhanho wa Taala all my read the Allah one who is from the ASHA, I'm about Shira, the person about homeless who sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and the hadith is in, steady mama, it is in the movie, where a su sallallahu alayhi wa salam said lo Cana, the billion that are the Locanda Omar if there is going to be a prophet after me, then that's going to be on our same was at the letter than Omar so when he would come across is that talked about punishment and Jahannam he would not be able to go through them.

00:25:42 --> 00:25:56

Right. So he was it is reported that he was with a gathering of his students and they were reciting Surah multifuel. And then he came up to the portion where it says yellow Yokomen nasally right behind me mean.

00:25:58 --> 00:26:40

I like her mother also on the elemina IV and yellow, my former NASA would have been I mean, those are the ones that are going to be resurrected for a great day, the day when all the people will be standing in front of the Lord of the worlds so he came to this portion and he started to cry, he would not be able to move forward. He cried so much that he became overwhelmed. That was how they interacted with the Quran. One of the key lessons that we can take from the story of Vietnam and the other Sahaba is is how they interacted with the Quran. And this is the time actually it's very timely that we take this lesson because because why? Because we are moving into the month of the

00:26:40 --> 00:27:20

Quran just days away with the opening and what a circumstance we find ourselves in. But again, everything is with the cabal of Allah subhanho wa Taala write whether we are able to go to the masjid whether we are not able to go to the masjid whether we are able to do it are we in JAMA whether we have to do we are home it does not matter. The month is here and the month is open for us to seek forgiveness right we seek us we still seek our salvation. During this month, the Hadith where the social Allahu alayhi wa salam says where which is reported in the Hadith and so many others that men karma are men sama Ramadan Iman and the sob and within Allah Who Zumba right,

00:27:20 --> 00:28:05

whoever observes Ramadan, whoever observes Ramadan whoever first the month of Ramadan with iman and with this with the hope of seeking worldwide, all his sins will be forgiven now that habeas does not say that you have to be in a specific place for your sins to be forgiven. Or you have to pray behind a specific Eman imam for your sins to be forgiven. It is there the offer is there. We accept the cut off Allah subhanaw taala we have hope in His mercy and we walk into the month of Ramadan full of hope. But if Allah wills all of this is just going to change it's just going to take a moment, but if it remains that in that is, is in that is great hair for us. So all these stories of piety of

00:28:05 --> 00:28:16

Abdullah bin Omar and the and likes of him may we be enabled to progress in our journey towards Allah subhanho wa Taala the second part of

00:28:18 --> 00:28:36

his The second characteristic that I want to share about the Lebanon which again is very touching, and that I said is his BA OfficeSuite sallallahu alayhi wa sallam right the manner in which he followed or so some of my family who were Salam he would

00:28:38 --> 00:29:34

it is said and this hadith is from Aisha Radi Allahu Allah, where she says sorry, it's from now Fair, where he says that I'm gonna ignore Omar Ghana. Yes, wo asada. resuIts. Allah Wiley, who was salam ala mechanic, Salafi he that NASA reports that it will Omar, he would pray in every place in every spot that he saw Rasul ever praying rights, even Muslim at BAFTA sheduled for cannot ignore or not yet I think, take a Shedra even though he's doing one of the travels of Phison sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he saw the suits of Allahu Allahu wa salam resting under a specific tree on a villa noticed that and he made sure to water that tree, so that it does not dry out so that it lives. Why,

00:29:34 --> 00:29:59

because he saw his beloved prophet resting under that tree. That was that's what that's what we as scholars mean by saying that his following of resource of Allahu alayhi wa sallam was, to the extent literal, sometimes right footstep for footstep, the path that he took he walked that path if he saw his cat if you saw ever the crow sal Allahu Allah who sometimes camel may two rounds be

00:30:00 --> 00:30:41

or during the quarter off that he would do the same thing. There's also this incident where it was reported which is not part of the syllabus is something that resource Allahu Allahu wa salam did that is that he did not button his top his collar like he did not button that it no armor never did it. It's not Sunday you don't have to do it but that was his choice. That's how he chose to express his love for his beloved vessel sal Allahu Allahu wa sallam. At one point, it was reported back are so sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that this door of the masjid of flesh of the Naboo should be left for women to enter. It is reported that he never entered through that door. So his adherence,

00:30:41 --> 00:31:26

his zeal in following resorts sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to the very minut detail is exemplary. It's inspiring for the month of Ramadan. What we can do of course we cannot get to his level. What we can do is maybe pick one sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one forgotten so now one simple sunnah doesn't have to be a big thing, right? And we make sure that we practice it we start practicing it now so that when we get into Ramadan, we're in shape right? And when we get out of Ramadan, it has become second nature to us. So let's start something now choose one you know you have all the time now your families together, there is no excuse. Each one can decide you can have a

00:31:26 --> 00:31:46

meeting you can have a sit down to decide what sunnah it is that you are going to take up this Ramadan and come out of it as a as as as part of your daily routine. As part of your nature as a habit of yours. Inspired by the story of Abdullah ibn Amr, Radi Allahu Allah. Now to conclude, there is this one

00:31:47 --> 00:32:02

advice that Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shared with Edna Ahmad and that I would like to share with you in order to conclude this session where he mentioned that

00:32:03 --> 00:32:56

I have received some a lifeline he was salam. Beeman, kabhi Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam put his hand on my shoulder, right? And he said, going for dinner, me in this dunya recovery as if you are a stranger, or are there to Seville or traveler? Famous Hadith, right? In Behati. It's there in so many other books. And in the Omar, he took this hadith and he basically made it the principle of his life. What is the lesson that is captured in this hadith or what is it that Rasul sal Allahu alayhi wa Salam is communicating to ignore Omar when he communicate when he shares this advice with him. He basically resourceful Allahu alayhi wa sallam, to this hadith he summarized the nature of

00:32:56 --> 00:33:45

this world. And what is the nature of this world simply that it is a means to an end, it will fly by so quickly, that when we are when we're at the end of it, we look back at it will be like, that was just a matter of those that was just for a few hours or maybe even a day or she at an hour the ha ha That's the reality of this life. Right. And with this hadith with this hadith resource, Allahu Allahu wa salam introduced the reality of this life to young Abdullah Abdullah on my back he held on to for the rest of his life. And that's the perspective that we need to regain. In the madness of our lives. This perspective has been lost. We think we're here for permanence, right? And Allah

00:33:45 --> 00:34:39

subhanaw taala, in a very powerful way, he does put us in this place when we find ourselves in the current current circumstances, you know, maybe this COVID 19 The circumstances global crisis that has come perhaps it is to teach us, right? Perhaps it is to teach us or perhaps it is to remind us of our fragility of the fact that how weak we are, that it does not take take much to stop us in our tracks and we have been stopped in our tracks literally, right. The other thing that perhaps Allah subhanaw taala wants to teach us through this crisis, is that and that can be again and again reminded through this hadith that he shared with Abdullah Norma is that COVID-19 is exactly for this

00:34:39 --> 00:34:59

purpose to make us differentiate between what is permanent and temporary. This is temporary, but we are we have become so focused on this temporary life that we have forgotten the permanent abode. We are so caught up in the madness of this life in our past

00:35:00 --> 00:36:01

projects in our wish lists in our, in our friends are not in the people that we hang out with, that we have somehow forgotten to distinguish between the important and the urgent. You know, movie this COVID 19 is here to help us distinguish between what is meaningful and what is meaningless, because that's exactly what we have been caught up with so many meaningless discussions, so many meaningless fights. So when we need meaningless, endless, endless, merely assuming it just continues, right. So, Allah subhanaw taala has sent this to give us that time to reflect and one very important thing that he makes us realize that race, language, ethnicity, color, religion, level off your Eman, nothing,

00:36:01 --> 00:36:36

nothing matters, right? Nothing matters. Everyone is in it together. We are one humanity standing begging in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala I wonder what it is what it is supposed to remind us off right and when that that's exactly what it is the day of judgment when everyone will the entire humanity will be standing in front of Allah subhanho wa taala, hoping for His Mercy hoping for His grace, right? The only ones who will be successful are who the ones who spent their moments in this dunya

00:36:39 --> 00:37:31

like a hadith or Hobbit is Seville like the Hadith said couldn't fit duniya Gan Nicola rebe olam it is Subbiah. Make put this up on your fridge, put it on your dinner table, under the plastic cover wherever you need to. But this is a strong reminder, this is the reality of our existence. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the Tofik to be mindful of this reality and be able to differentiate between life and vanity between purpose this COVID-19 This should teach us how to differentiate between our purpose and vain attempt in life. Right? All the all the pursuits towards vanity, it should help us to filter those May Allah subhanaw taala give us the ESTA karma. Most importantly,

00:37:32 --> 00:38:10

May He give us the Hult May He give our family members or loved ones, everyone, everyone as we stand together brothers and sisters in this humanity, right? May He give us all that Orphic to recover from this. Learn from this right and apply it to our lives so that we may progress in our relationship with Him so that we may progress in our obedience to Him Subhan Allah because Allah is merciful, salam ala l Mursaleen. Al hamdu, Lillahi Rabbil Alameen. So we have questions.

00:38:11 --> 00:38:11


00:38:12 --> 00:38:14

All these are questions or this is a question okay.

00:38:19 --> 00:38:28

How can I get my kids to do so long with me without pushing them away from me? I fear losing my kids to American way of life.

00:38:30 --> 00:39:03

How can I get my kids to do that? I think one of the most common questions and one of the most common worries that mothers share parents share and the thing is, every household is different. Every child is unique, right? We cannot give you a textbook answer unfortunately. Number one I would say is make lots and lots and lots of dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala cry this is this is the time when Allah subhanaw taala will accept no that Allah subhanho wa Taala will accept your DUA right with that intention, make the

00:39:04 --> 00:39:07

also ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give you

00:39:08 --> 00:39:52

to give you the ability to communicate to the to your kids in the best way possible, whether just through your action, or words. You know, most of the times we think that we have to communicate through words, I think we should, we should we should think about that mindset a little bit that it is not always that you have to communicate verbally, sometimes most of the times I believe that actions speak louder than words. Continue to do what you are doing. If you think that you constantly nagging your kids will put them off then I would advise do not nag them however, however try to reach out to them in different ways, maybe through their friends who are more practicing. I mean, in

00:39:52 --> 00:39:59

this circumstance, it's difficult when everybody is doing social distancing, but do not lose hope. Maybe there is an adult that below

00:40:00 --> 00:40:03

up to right. As a mother, I personally believe

00:40:04 --> 00:40:45

that, you know, after the father and the mother, there has to be a third person in the child's life, right? I, me and my husband, both of us. I don't think we ever spent time conversing or having communicated or communicating with our kids. We were saying, No, you have to do this. And no, you have to do that. I always reached out to a third person who I saw that my child looked up to, and that worked like magic. That's one advice I can give you as a mother. Right? That this is something that I did. So see if you can look for those third party influences where you can talk to your children about this. And at the end of the day, it's all the Qaddafi Allah subhanaw taala Allah

00:40:45 --> 00:41:28

subhanaw taala will not take you into account for what your children did or did not do. Allah subhanho wa Taala will ask you did you do your job and as long as you are doing your job with sincerity, you are fulfilling your duties, you're fulfilling your responsibility. Allah subhanho wa Taala Hafeet. Allah subhanaw taala will facilitate it for you. Allah subhanho wa Taala listened to the drop off the offer Musa alayhis salam is the mother immediately right. They were unified in a matter of moments, right? But at the same time, he responded to the Doha of Yahoo data he Salam decades later, right? So Allah knows why he does what he does, it's his plan. And we can only submit

00:41:28 --> 00:41:55

to His words and Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for you and for all the parents out there who are going through this crisis I understand I totally totally understand how how, how much it can bear on you, but inshallah it will be easy. So with this I will end today's session and in sha Allah I will see you for the grammar class on Sunday at 1pm There was another question did the Abdullah worthy Allah one have kids who were famous Yes.

00:41:57 --> 00:42:03

If I'm not wrong, one of his one of his kids was very famous and his name was solemn where the Allah one

00:42:05 --> 00:42:06

Rahim Allah but

00:42:08 --> 00:42:21
