Kathy Hello. So as I said last week, I don't think that we could cover a whole bucket in a single class. And I realized last week that it wouldn't do justice to cover and even to, and so we're gonna actually break up a Becker's life for the a lot of time on 123. But three, again, as they as they relate to this concept of the first as they relate to this concept, and those that
precede everyone and good. Now, if you remember the first class that we did, where we set out those categories of people in the first, you know, what would make someone a first right, I'll move back to marks all of those different boxes all the time, right? He's the ultimate trendsetter. He's the ultimate stranger. He's the ultimate four runner ibikunle. The alojado has no competition and basically anything that he does, and the best description of him is the description of it. You know, we thought about the low Anwar and he said about bobeck kettle, the law and who can have a better sub baton nicoli higher. He said that Abubakar was the first to every good. And so what we're going
to do is this week, we're going to talk about abubaker elevated in his pursuit of good elevated in his unbeatable in his pursuit of good his own inspiration, the standards that he sets meaning what Rebecca teaches us about goal setting, what Rebecca teaches us about having an elevated standard for yourself. Next week, we're gonna talk about and show what's out and we'll conclude with and by the way, my flight back to Dallas lands an hour and 15 minutes before arratia next week, so hopefully we'll have class I'm intending on inshallah. But if it gets delayed, then we'll send out a notification on the app. But next week we'll talk about bubble bucket well the law of title and the
status that he had with the profit slice and the meaning why Samuel Beckett is irreplaceable. So if you want to think of it this way, today, we'll talk about an elevated standard. Next week we'll talk about an elevated status what makes him so irreplaceable in the sight of the prophets ally Solomon, why his rank as the ultimate first is so unquestioned, why it is so solidified in our thought. So I will record all the Alon who his nickname is acidic, the true form. And there's a story behind that title of acidic the truthful one. As we said, he resembles Ibrahim alayhis salam, the prophet Abraham in a beautiful way in his story of the interaction with the idols in his commitment he
resembles a bahaminy his setup but what makes him a Sadiq the study of this oma the truthful, one of this oma, so first and foremost, Allah says in the Quran, Mina Mina, the Jalan Sadako, Mara de la Holly from inhuman paavana woman, woman, young, one, Abdullah Abdullah, that there are people from amongst the believers, men and women from amongst the believers that are truthful to the covenant that they set with their Lord. Some of them have a chance to fulfill those promises right away, meaning some of them are tested in their commitment to the truth right away. And some of them are postponed, but they don't lose anything in regards to their resolve, the resolve never changes. What
is that referring to? Particularly we're talking about the first Okay, we're talking about these people. All right. Allah says a hassy manassa nutreco yaku Amanda home la afternoon. Do people think that they simply say we believe and they're not going to be tested? Right? When a person commits themselves to belief often that's when a group of tests will come to test the resolve the resilience they have with that belief. Now, some people are in a state of heightened enthusiasm, in their commitment, you know, they recognize the truth. They have a moment where they express this desire to do something with that truth. They express this desire to make sacrifices to struggle, they make
promises to Allah so you have a heightened emotion think about Ramadan.
Ramadan came how many promises? Did you make a normal blog? even more than that heads, which is Ramadan on steroids, right? You're you know, in terms of the the promises that you're likely to make to God that I'm going to do this, I'm going to do that I'm going to do this and then what happens when the enthusiasm wears off? So does that commitment, the promise is ultimately broken you because the enthusiasm wore off? acidic is someone who recognizes the truth, who commits themselves to the truth and who never wanes in regards to the truth. Okay, so the three things number one, it refers to the recognition of the truth.
ability to recognize truth. And there's a direct connection between our thoughts, our intellect and the purity of our hearts when the heart is soiled. Even if you're a smart person, the ability to recognize clarity is lost as well. When the heart is pure, then your ability to recognize also becomes pure. your intellect is pure, your ability to grasp truth becomes pure. So the heart and mind of Abu Bakar were completely in sync and devoted only to that truth. Okay, so they have a recognition of the truth. That's the first one they recognize truth. That's so deep. Number two, they commit themselves to that truth. Number three, they don't wane, meaning their resolve remains
in regards to that truth. Okay, so those are three qualities of the Civic. And there's something very interesting about this category of people. May Allah make us amongst them, those people of truth, love them. I mean, because this is what I really want to focus on what makes Beckett VSA deep, okay. In this particular class, there's something about them that's very interesting, which is that they are a category between the prophets and the martyrs. The prophets are the highest category of people. The Shahada, the martyrs, typically get recognized as the second highest category, but the Sydney coin are actually higher than the martyrs. How does that work? First and foremost, what's
the proof of it? Obviously, within the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala mentions the MBR. And so the horn and the Shahada, right, so some will take the categories that way that Allah mentions categories that Allah mentions, the truthful people are people of truth between the prophets and the martyrs okay? There's also the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam where the Prophet was with a Wilbekin armor and earth man and they were on Mount offered and offered shook and the profit slice on kneel down and he tapped her and he said, If Bhatia offered to be firm or heard speaking to the mountain, the firm offered for Indiana alayka Nabi was the Deke washer he then you have upon you, a prophet, a
Sadiq, a person of truth, a man of truth and abubaker and to martyr shahidan OSHA he then to martyrs being Omar an earth man, so the prophets lie some basically told on earth man that day, that you're going to be martyred right later on in life, which is exactly what would come to pass. I will back it was the only one of the Hooda who was not who was not martyred. Okay, who was not actually killed? All right, you have upon you a prophet ACD and to martyrs. Okay, a prophet, a Soviet Russia he date. The scholars talk about this in the following way. Number one.
Are we judged by actions or by intentions?
To be the easiest question of all time.
In the first half a lot of are in no way the first idea of most most collections in the Malou Binya actions are but by intentions, you're going to answer intentions, right? Yeah, actions are backed by intentions. Okay. intentions are what we're judged by. So the scholars say that the Siddique already achieved the reward of the shahidan everything else because this idiot if the situation presented itself where they would have to put their life on the line for the truth, they would not hesitate, because that's already their quality. So they have Shahada encompassed in their reward martyrdom encompassed in their reward, and all the other stuff that they do with their son. Okay, so what they
say is that the Sadiq always always has the intention anyway for any type of price to pay with the truth. Whereas the Shaheed, you know, a martyr, at the very least, is civic in the moment of their martyrdom. Right? They're truthful in the moment of being killed or being martyred for something for that truth, right? But the Sadiq has that attitude, encompassing their entire life. Now can a person be both Sadiq and Shahid?
Yes, okay. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst them those that encompass all these good qualities, right? And of course, Shahada, the prophets license that a person could ask Allah for the reward of, of Shahada, and they could die sleeping in their bed and allow would give it to them. So it's back to the intentions, right? So so this is someone who is truthful all around everything about their lives, demonstrates a commitment to the truth. So the very first way to notice the deep, is they're truthful in their speech. Okay, they're truthful in their speech. All right, you can't lie with your tongue and then hope to be a subject. All right, they're truthful in their speech. And
then after being truthful with their speech, they are truthful in their actions as well. The way that a mammal does that
Rahim Allah describes that he says that the Sadiq a sick filled coal to be truthful with speech. And if you don't understand me when I say this or if you need me to repeat this later on, I will but I want to get into the lesson. He said someone who is saw that only he who is truthful, their speech, there is no discrepancy between what they say and what is reality. Meaning when they describe things, they describe things truthfully, their tongue speaks to reality, right? A lie is to misrepresent, okay, so a subclinical is when speech and reality are in sync. And then Kamala says something very beautiful, he says, was said to me to be truthful. And action means that there's
consistency between your words and your deeds. What you say is how you act, what you profess is what guides your actions and your deeds. Okay? So there's a subtle code, and then a greater after being truthful of speech, the next commitment, which is to be truthful, in regards to your actions as well to your commitments, as well. So where does Rebecca get this from? Now? Obviously, we talked about how when the prophets lie, some came up a bucket, in the very beginning, Rebecca said, I believe you went and built a community around him. Right? So apobec here is quality of recognition of the truth was there okay. But where does the actual when did the prophets lie some call him so deep and who
actually was the first to call him a Sadiq is a very beautiful narration from who the Allahu taala is, because it surrounds the example or it surrounds the incident of Islam with marriage. When the Prophet sallallahu wasallam took the Night Journey when Allah took him from Mecca to Jerusalem when he led the prophets in prayer and Allah showed him what he showed him of the heavens and beyond. Right so the Night Journey of the prophets lie Selim what's known as a slot when
when the prophets lie some of them was with jabril at his salon, this is in the narration of abode a lot of the A lot of times
the prophets lie Salaam says, Go to lead jabril I said to jabril Allah, his Salah as we were on our way back from the journey, close to the legendary in economy, leaders of the economy. My people will not believe me. My people will not believe me. He says faqad the colony jabril jabril said to me, yes do hoka have a back up Wilbekin will believe you. And he is a Sadiq. Well, who has studied and he is the truthful one. So how I like to believe it is Salaam expressing that confidence It doesn't matter. Yeah, people are gonna make fun of you people are not gonna believe you. But the one who always believes you will have a record will believe you and I will record will dedicate himself to
you. Yes, do coca abubaker back here or the law of Thailand who will believe in you? Well, who acidic and he is the truthful one. So what happens the prophets lie Selim gets back from the night of lasallian mirage. He tells this is still an error. This is not Melania he hasn't moved to Medina, yet he's still in the era of being harassed and humiliated and persecuted. And so you don't want to do anything to perpetuate that right? The Prophet slice Allah says to his people,
that last night, a lot took me from Mecca to Jerusalem. And he showed me of the heavens, what he showed me and brought me back in one night.
I would have said, Wait, what Abuja had said, Would you say that if I go call everybody else? profits? I said, Yes. Abuja goes and gathers all the people who says, Come look at this fool. Listen to him. Say what you just said to me. The prophets lie, some repeats it. They roll out in laughter, they, you know, they start to mock the profit slice on them. They point at him, they jeer at him, and they can't wait to spread the news. Like we told you, he was crazy. Right? So who do they go to first of all, Beckett because Rebecca is a highly intelligent man, right? They want to and the idea here is to de stabilize or to or to put some doubts in some of the followers of the profits license
to start to at least fracture that community a bit. Right? It's a small community they've they've been beaten, they've been subjected to torture. Let's go to our bucket and see if our backyard is gonna budge. So before the prophet SAW some guts aboubaker to tell him what happened. Who does apobec could hear from first he hears from these people, they go to Apple bucket as a delegation. They say have you heard what your companion is claiming? He said No, what? They said he's claiming that a lot took him in one night from Mecca to Mazel oxide to Jerusalem and back.
I will record all the law and who said our Kala Dalek. Did he say that? They said yes. Now they're thinking that the next lesson, the next thing, at least double back and we'll go, Well, let me go talk to him. Or no, he probably didn't say that. You're exaggerating. You're making things up. They're thinking they're going to get some sort of reaction from Wilbekin especially since the first thing he said was Oh, what did he say that? Like, Did he really say that? Not? Are you serious? No. Did he say that a lot.
adeleke carlu nam they said yes, for color.
In Canada, Carla in Canada Parla hufa cazzola if that's what he said, He's telling the truth.
If that's what he said, I believe him. He's telling the truth. Somehow so he, he's so eloquent and he's such a perfect answer because, number one, you're you're liars. I can't take you seriously. Okay, or I can't, I can't confirm you might be exaggerating, you might be adding something to this, you might be embellishing this or making something up. So if he did say that, as you're saying it, then he is telling the truth, of full expression of confidence in the prophets lie Selim that he is telling the truth. And you might not be telling the truth, which is of course the methodology of heavy if he said it, it's true. Okay, if he said it.
In parlor Dallek, for cassava if he said that then he is telling the truth. And they told them well bucket Are you serious? Like Really? You know, even this, I will back at all the loved one who said Listen, I believe him. Female who are other arguments, Alec, I believe him when something far greater than that. I believe him when he says that he is receiving revelations from the heavens. So what would make this so difficult for me to believe? Right? If I believe him when he says he is a prophet of Allah, then what would make this so difficult to believe? And so that's when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually started to call him a Sadiq according to some of the
narrations. There's the Hadith and the data kwitny that we are here says that I cannot tell you how many times come Samaritan rally and Nicole how many times I heard a lead on the line who's saying, well, Julio colada member in Allah azza wa jal, Semih Becker li li Sangeeta v he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so deca that Allah named abubaker on the tongue of his prophets, the truthful one, that this was a name, this title, this quality that Allah gave to Beckett was given to him divinely on the tongue of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. So if there are categories of an MBR on a Sunday morning, the Shahada, the prophets, and then the truthful ones in the martyrs, herbal bucket
is the clear, number one in that category. Right, he leads the pack in that category. So it's recognition of the truth. That's the first thing and then that commitment to the truth, right? This wasn't just a while back, it'll the alarm saying, Yeah, I believe him. I will Beckett had such confidence in everything that the Prophet size and I'm sad. And so there was another incident also, you're still in Mecca. It's not like the prophets powerful at this point. And the prophets lie, Selim has shown that he's going to be victorious. So there's some you know, there's some benefit to getting in in with him right for some sort of worldly problems. This is all still in McIntyre under
persecution, a lot of reveals, sort of thrown. Okay, the chapter of Rome, that will be better room, Vietnam out home in the lobby him so you have the bone that the Romans have been defeated, and in the lowest point on earth, and after their defeat, they shall now be victorious, the ability Sunni, Allah will make them victorious. between three and nine years feebly senior scene. What was this referring to? The Romans were Christians. The Persians were Zoroastrians the Muslims identified with the Christians. Christ identified with the Zoroastrians, the Persians, the Persian Empire at the time was defeating the Roman Empire right and left at this point when this was revealed, it seemed
like the crushing and the crushing blow that the Persians were about to ruin, or wipe out the Roman Empire once and for all, that they had no chance of ever coming back from this. And that's when a lot reveals that, yes, the Romans have been defeated. But they're going to come back and win between three and nine years. This, according to some of the scholars, was an even harder claim than an assault with Mirage because they could see tangibly that the Romans were done, why stake your entire mission on this prediction? Right. So if the prophets lie, some is making this all up, he's really putting the entire message at stake here by making such a prediction. And it came in response to the
polytheists of Mecca saying to the Muslims, that just as your brothers have been defeated by our brothers, we, too will defeat you. So when this was revealed, apobec at all, the law was so happy, he went to he went to a group of Muslims and he went to a group of the polytheists. And he said, that don't be too happy because in just a few years, the Romans will defeat the Persians. And they said what an uphill battle the law and he said, Yeah, Allah revealed to the Prophet slice them that the Romans are going to beat the Persians. Well, they have no Caliph says you want to bet well, that could have said short said how much
She said 10 Campbell's. All right. I will back you said you've got a deal. Now pause is betting halaal.
Betting is not Hello. This is still before the prohibition of gambling. That's number one. All right, which is in Medina. Number two, is it really a gamble? If it's divine revelation?
No. Number three, can you claim divine revelation? And get into a bet?
I'm concerned by your answer. All right. Don't go into a sports button. Say that I saw last night
that the Cowboys would make it to the playoffs. You're going to lose a lot of money. All right. Don't do it to yourself. Okay. If you saw a star in your dream, and you say I was lucky, it was divine revelation. Okay. But this is clear, divine revelation, clear divine revelation, right? There's no ifs, there's no risk here. It's a very unique situation. So well back to the law on who's showing his confidence in the prophets. Isaiah says fine, 10 camels.
Now when I go back and talk to the prophets, I send them three years passes by remember Allah gave a window, three to nine years, right? Three years passes, and the Persians have crushed the Romans even further. They're more isolated. They're in their small little towns at this point. They look like they're really done now. So it's looking even worse. So they have no Halla marks abubaker. He says, how's that looking? on the record said, Great, you want to increase it?
He said, Yeah, sure, said how much you said 100 camels deal. 100 camels is an entire fortune. That's everything. Right? That's everything. Rebecca does not even own a full 100 camels. All right, but that's, you know what, I have full confidence and faith that the prophets lie Selim is going that Allah will give victory the way that Allah subhanaw taala said that he would give victory. So when they were making his law when they're migrating, all right, the bat is still on there seven years in seven years in and the Persians are still defeating the Romans and obey it. No, hada he doesn't care if rubble bucket is making his robot, he says, Rebecca, Hey, wait a minute, you can't leave and
forget our bets. So I want a guarantee or that our that my 100 camels will be given to me. All right, so who did they agree upon? They agreed upon a rollback of son after a man who was not a Muslim yet.
Okay, and would stay in Mecca. That if something happens if you don't see me again, the 100 camels, he'll take care of it. It's on the family. Now. This bed is on the family. Okay, so baby was pleased with duck. So guess what happens? They make kids they migrate. And the year of bedrijf. The year of the battle have ended, which is the next year the Romans defeat the Persians after eight years suddenly, right, come back and defeat the Persians, the Muslims defeat. koresh in the same year. So it was a double meaning, right that allows you to give victory, you know.
And alas penalty. Allah mentions the Roman Catholic woman very well. Yama isn't yet for a whole meaning of Venezuela the day that the believers would be pleased with the victory of Allah subhanaw taala young sort of mania shot and Allah would give victory to whom He wills in the last monetize, all powerful and All Merciful. So last pentatonic gave that victory to the believers themselves here. And that was a double meaning not just that the Romans would beat the Persians, but that the Muslims would also overcome in the Battle of bedeutet. So when did I go back and get his 100 camels now? Okay. Obey of no Caliph was the man who would spit at the face of the Prophet slice Allah, and
who swore to the Prophet sly Salaam, I will kill you.
And the Prophet slicin responded and said, rather I will kill you.
Okay, obey. Allah is the only man that was ever killed at the hands of the prophets. Lysander when the Battle of the prophets lie Selim did not use to kill people. The prophets lie Selim was on he at that point, he was attacked, he could barely move. He was being carried. The prophets lie Selim saw obey, charging at him and he picked up a spear and he threw it from far away and it just nicked away on the side of his throat. It didn't hit him center, just nicked Him
and obey said, Attorney, Mohammed Khatami, Mohammed Mohammed killed me, Mohammed killed me. And they told him they said, What are you talking about? It's just a small, it's not even a big deal. But somehow a lot from that small wound on the side of his neck, he passed away and the profit slice on him said, the worst person is a person who's killed by the hand of his prophet. Allah sends his profits to guide people, and a person is killed at the hands of his prophet. And it was then that the share of 100 camels was taken from the inheritance of obey Allah given to Rebecca, Rebecca will the law of Thailand who gave it all to charity, so he did not benefit from even one part of it.
What was left behind from obey? Aleph and that was again a while back in full belief in what the prophet slicin and brought always always committed to it, and has absolutely no hesitation. So there's no Tara. There's no hesitation in following that truth with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam there's also the soup that recognition of the truth that made a robocall, the alarm was such a visionary, his vision always lined up with the vision of the Prophet slice Allah. Well, who saw the plan? I mean, the prophets lie Selim is the most truthful person, right? His vision always lined up with the vision of the Prophet slicin them when no one else could see things, the way that the
Prophet sighs them could see them. Rebecca always saw them exactly the same way. So he was the first person Okay, where the Prophet sighs I'm had to consult someone, he's the first person to be consulted, as Rebecca will be allowed on. Right? Every single time he consults him, he finds that there's an agreement with their opinion. And sometimes it's very difficult scenarios and difficult situations. Like in the treaty I've heard they be when the prophets lie, some sign the treaty, a peace treaty, and the Muslims did not want to sign a peace treaty with their oppressors. So we've suffered enough humiliation, enough of this why sign this treaty and especially the things they
weren't allowing him to write Muhammad Rasool Allah Mohammed, the Messenger of Allah, there's no Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. This is you know, this is humiliation. You can't write your terms. These terms are unfair, imbalanced against the Muslims. They didn't want it. And that's one of the allow, slip, slipped, and all metal the low,
you know, set to the set to the other companions, aren't we on the truth? And that's not that hot. Aren't we on the truth? Aren't they upon falsehood? And they would say yes, so he was riling up companions, they didn't want to stop. They didn't want to turn back and look back at all the law and who was the only one who saw things exactly the way the profits license saw things which was that Islam would thrive in peace.
That Let's stop war if we cleared the way. If we are able to preach openly, then Islam will thrive and peace. The prophets lie some did not want it that way. And I will back out on the lawn who says no one saw things the way the prophets license saw them that day except for me. And I went back and talked about how things came back. After after years, right how he saw even the negotiators on the side of the machine, so hate him number. So hate him. No Rama, who was filthy harsh with the prophet SAW Selim, who was negotiating on their side. And now he's in hudge, trying to collect the hair of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. When the prophets lie, some is shaving his head, or weapon Massoud
is now on the side of the Muslim so he's a sea of Welbeck. He says, I saw the flip. But no one saw the vision of the prophets like Selim, except for me that day, only Beckett had the same vision as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that day, so I will back down on the line. And I don't want to go too far down this but but that's part of being sodiq. Right is that the truth was was clear to him. He was at peace with it all the time. And he had this clarity of truth as well. Which is why even when the prophets lie, some died, no one loved him likeable. Beckett loved him.
But when the prophets lie, some died and they're in the messenger, then people are debilitated. They're losing it, right? They're broken. Who is hurting more than a Wilbekin bubble back at all? The alarm had such clarity? Right? What would the prophets lie some have wanted, he wants his mission to continue, he wants his message to continue, he wants the creed that he was willing to die for, to not be compromised in his death. So when almost all the Alon who stands up emotionally and says, Whoever says Mohammed has dead then I'm going to kill him. And he you know, you're a hypocrite. And it's just like when Moses went to his Lord for 40 days, he's going to come back on
the road, Ilan was emotional, very, very emotional over the death of the Prophet slice on them. And I will back it on the line who stood up and he told me to stop, sit down on the law and who would not stop. So we'll back it on the line who stood up in the messages and just started to speak and people naturally listen to abubaker even though his voice was extremely soft, they naturally gathered around a little bucket and that's when he said, When Kenny Abu Mohammed and Mohammed and whatnot, whoever used to worship Mohammed sigh some that Mohammed is dead, whoever used to worship Allah than a lot is ever living never dies. Eternal clarity, right, no one is hurt more than double
bucket right now. But a bucket is driven by the truth as much as he loves the prophets lie Selim. He's connected to the mission and the message of the Prophet slicin. And that's what the prophets lie some would have wanted of him right to keep steer people back on that message. And when he recited the ayah in the Quran, that Mohammed is a messenger as a matter of acquittal, if he dies or if he is killed Lee you turn back on your heels or mow the lawn and said I collapsed. It was like I never heard that. I never heard that verse before. It's like I'd never heard there's like my first time hearing that I have
And before, because they just never considered the possibility of the profits license, death. So that's a rollback of the law and his vision, in accordance with the vision of the prophets lie Selim. And that's what makes him so special in his khilafah as well, which we're not going to be able to get into in this particular series because we're talking about the beginnings here, right? But in his khilafah, no one could guide the oma more upon what the prophets lie Selim kept it on, then Abu Bakr, who had the exact same vision, comprehension, balance perspective as the Prophet slicin. If his perspective always lined up with the Prophet, slice Allah, then that's what gave this
oma the ability to continue forward within that vision of the profit slice on it. That's why I like it all the Alon who never, never ever, ever turns back on anything, the profits licensor, right was stern on what the prophets lie some of them commanded, even after he assumed that he Lofa or the Allahu taala Alright, the next part of this which is which is where I really want to get to, which is the elevated standard, setting a different standard for yourself.
This is a man who has been guaranteed paradise on numerous occasions, but he keeps setting standards for himself. And he keeps beating his own goals with a lot of trial and error. The ultimate Mycenae the ultimate person of excellence?
Right, so we talked about and Marcin on those who just surpassed people with the excellence of their deeds, Wilbekin on the law and who was the ultimate Meissen? Okay, two heads and two heads in this regard. One of them who the Alon who said, I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam say that whoever spends a pair of something in a lost cause will be called from all of the gates of paradise. Whoever used to excel in prayer would be called from the gate of prayer in Paradise, whoever is from the people of jihad, the people writes, a struggle will be called from that gates, whoever is from the people of South Africa of charity will be called from that gate. Whoever is from
the people of fasting will be called from that gate of fasting, which is Babel, the young, the prophets, I send them said, and whoever is called from all of those gates will need nothing more meaning you're you're set. The reality is, you get to agenda.
Do you really care which gate you get in through?
Do you really care which gate you get into when you get to gender?
Any of you guys care what you get you get into? Alright, I just want to get in. Okay, side entrance, front entrance, if there's a back entrance, you know, whatever, just let me in. Right you get into generally you get into Gemini, it's the same gender when you get into it right there. degrees, but the doorway doesn't matter, right? Which gate you get into, doesn't really matter. And when you get into genda, do you ever leave it? Does anyone go to Paradise and then you do something really, really bad in Paradise and get kicked out? Do you do you get into genda and say, let me go check the other gate out? No, when you're in you're not leaving. So what happened when the Prophet sly Salaam
said this abubaker are the allowed time home he heard that and he said hell you mean her? Clearly her I had. Also Lola he says there any person that can possibly be called from all of the gates. Is there anyone that's gonna arrive at gentlemen all the gates of Paradise the angels say Come this way. Come this way. Come this way Come this way. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Nam? Will you enter Cornermen home? Yeah, abubaker Yes. And I pray that you will be one of them. You'll be that person you show up on the Day of Judgment.
We get to gentlemen, but in the law, may Allah allow all of us to enter into paradise. And all of the gates of Paradise are gonna say oh, well back in this one. Come through this gate, come through this gate come through this gate. Now it was all back and all the lower handhold like yes, I got them all because the prophets I send them if he prays for something if he hoped it's gonna happen, right? If the prophets lie, some says that. He's not just saying that like, I'll make it out for you. Right? You're pretty set. What did he do? He excelled in all of those actions. Every single one of those actions even the ones that weren't particularly
that he wasn't particularly noteworthy for although I can hold the alarm who was not a very strong man physically speaking, right? very skinny. Very few hairs on his face. He You know, he had he had a bend in his waist that would cause sometimes his his pants to sag his Sidwell to sack well buckle the law and who was not a huge man like almost right, but a little the low on who said, You should have seen a whole bucket in battle.
He said I saw him in front of the prophets lie Selim on the day of bedded and he said, If anyone came near the prophets lie Selim abubaker was like a ferocious lion.
Acid complete lion jumping in front of the Prophet slicin would not let anyone near the messenger of a loss of life.
Right so even the things you know what is a robot can have in battle, right but but that's there's something about him where he excels in all of these things.
And this is where the next Hadeeth comes in, which is very practical for us to act upon. This Hadith is narrated through multiple chains, it's authentic that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, one day gathered his companions and said, Man, Mohammed Kuma leiomyosarcoma, who amongst you woke up today, fasting, who's fasting today? Now, the prophets lysozyme is asking the companions to share who they are, right? So it's not like, you know, you want to hide your fasting right now. The Prophet slicin is asking who's fasting? You're gonna raise your hand. Okay, so who amongst you is fasting today? So Rebecca on the line who hesitantly said no, you also lie me? below the line who was also fasting
that day? Okay. So then the prophets lie Selim said, some antebi I'm in kamiyama janaza who amongst you follow the janaza today
so it looked around I'm the love mama followed a janaza that they have Wilbekin Oh, the alarm again followed a janazah that he prayed the funeral prayer that day, so he went to the graveyard. Thurman autonoma Minh, commonly oma Myskina prophets lie Some said who amongst you fed a poor person today? Back it looks around.
Yet also lie did okay, I fed a poor person today. And the profit slice I'm set and then add them in Kuma, Leona. Mariela, who amongst you went to visit a sick person today. We could look around. Yes, ally did right. Now the profit slice of them knows double bucket is above everybody else, right? This was not like it's not like tonight there's going to be a quiz. Right? This was just his average day that he went to janazah was fasting, federal poor person and went to visit someone who was sick on top of being the shadow of the prophets lie Selim, by the way, and everything else that Rebecca does this. This was just who he was. Right. And the prophet SAW sent him was asking him to show
himself here, not to not to put everyone down. But just to point to something out to point something out here. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, no one combines all of these traits in one day's except that they will be able to enter Jenna from any direction that they want.
This person, it's not like he gets called from every gate in general, just because he does everything that would get him called into every gate in general. He maintains a share of all of these things in his life. And he leads in every category. And so this is what's important to know about Rebecca on the low side on how he leads in every category that is shared with people. And then he has specific virtues only for him. This is something I love that Josie Kimo Lhasa, Josie said, the philosophy of double bucket or hot sauce, whereas the philosophy of the rest of the Sahaba are mostella. What does that mean? the virtues of a Wilbekin are specific, they're only for him there
are things that he gets that no one else gets, he has virtues that belong only to him exclusive. Whereas the virtues of the other companions are shared. Other people did those things too, but they excelled in some ways as well back at all the law I know just leads the pack in every single way. The Quran speaks to him and about him about him. We mentioned sort of the late last week, we mentioned when they were in the cave together, the prophet sly son was in the cave with him. There is another iron circle
where lots of Anahata mentions
it's either verse 15, or 16. top of the page and a half for our last panel Tana mentions, the person will sign an incentive led ExxonMobil homina Tomoko Han Omar tokota Bahama. hoffy sala husana Shara and then the last point I mentioned after that a person who says to Allah subhanho wa Taala Pamela the verses slipping my head
versus slipping my mind. But this is a person who calls out to a loss of Hannah Montana Wareham ne Allah huhtala tuna Shahada, hatakeyama Bella Bella albarino Santa Paula labios Ernie and ash Quran aromatic ality unarmed La la la vida de when our metal Swati hunter la was literally physically it needs to be to a lake. We're in the middle muslimeen Allah mentions this person who reaches the age of 33 and then reaches the age of 40. And then this person calls out to Allah and they thank Allah for the blessing that he blessed them with and their entire family. Okay, this is the part that's revealed to Rebecca are about a bucket. In the Josie Kamala says double bucket is the only person
the only person from the companions who every single member of his family embraced Islam and became a companion of the Prophet slice enter
his entire family. Parents his mother became Muslim early on his father way later right after the conquest of Mecca. Ahava but eventually he became Muslim right spouse
Kids, everyone became Muslim, and above the law and who got to witness that. And that was a special gift for him. Right that every single person in his family became a Muslim in the time of the Prophet slice Allah meaning they witnessed they became Sahaba as well. All right.
Except for as we set up the amendment, I'll be back here. He took some time, right now. I'll be back as the last, the last one from the kids of Rebecca all the law on how to become Muslim. And there's not even be Becker. He wasn't hostile to Islam, but he was, he just wasn't pulled the way that Rebecca or the law and the others work. So he actually in the Battle of bed that he was on the other side. He was on the other side of that man became Muslim after the Battle of others. All right. And he comes to his father and tell his father he says, you know, on the day of bed that I was trying to make sure that you and I don't come face to face is a good father son moment, right? Like Dad, you
know how much I love you The Battle of bed that I was hiding, I saw you I go the other direction. I tried to make sure I didn't come face to face or record all the alarm says that's interesting, because I was looking for you.
I was looking for you. Because you're fighting the prophets lie. Selim, you're fighting against the Muslims, right? So it's like, you know, am I supposed to be happy about this? Right? hamdulillah he became Muslim. He became a companion. But that's just that moment, right. That other man was the last holdout and he became Muslim as well. So that was a giftable bucket, that he got to see his parents, he got to see his kids, all of them, you know, the generation before him, the generation after him within his family, accept Islam embrace it, in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And there's one more about him, which is very profound, because it's an ayah to him, which
is the verse about, about the slander of his daughter, he shall the law on how he said was slandered.
A lie revealed the verses proclaiming her innocence. One of the people that slandered it shall was misled. misled, was the cousin of double Beckett. He was broke, he had no money, he was in poverty. And abubaker used to give him charity every day, you imagine a Wilbekin on the line, who would give him charity. And while he's giving him charity, he goes and slanders his daughter, gives a nightmare to the prophets. lysozyme gives a nightmare to I mean, this, really embroiled hurt the prophets why Selim hurt the family of the profit slice I'm hurt the community. Imagine how hurt double Beckett was when he realized that the person who are one of the people who propagated that slander of his
own daughter and the wife of the Prophet slice on them was his cousin who he was giving charity to.
Who was unable to take care of himself otherwise. So an alphabet could have heard that Mr. was one of them. A whole bunch of set will lie. I'll never give him charity again. That's it. He didn't say I'm gonna go shake him up and say, give me back all that money over these years. I'm gonna punish him. I'm gonna go give him a piece of my mind. He just said,
Well, that's it for him. Why would I give charity to this man? Right, that was slandering my daughter. And alarm revealed knowing the standard of abubaker
not commending him. But when he asked for what he asked for, whoa, why not forgive and pardon Allah to have bona fide Allahu Allah?
Wouldn't you love that a lot forgives and pardons you? Why don't you forgive in part and don't you want a lot to forgive? And Pardon? You? Know, by the way, side note, if the prophets lie, Selim was fabric fabricating the poor and Do you really think that that would have been slipped in there?
Right, like this is a man who slandered his wife and just put him through a lot of pain to the profits by seller. And an AI a comes down directly to Apple Beckett. Forgive him. pardon him? Don't hold it. Why not? Because you have to. Not because you're going to be punished if you don't allow it to have been a federal law who like him? Don't you want Allah to forgive you? Don't you want a lot to pardon? You? Have a bucket heard that from the Prophet slice on his answer is beautiful. You didn't hesitate? He said Bella. Bella. Bella ahead. Yes, I'd love that. I'd love that. I love that. Yes, I'd love to be forgiven. The same day that miss that was to be lost for slandering, Artesia. He
had his silica from a bubble bucket, and I'm like it increased it.
So para la like he went back to giving him every single day, his charity, so even Allah holds him to a different standard. And this was something that Rebecca told the law on who excels and this is the subject here the commitment to the truth in the commitment to good after becoming the Khalifa of the prophets lie Selim Abubakar, the law of title, who is known to milk the goats of the widows and the orphans Wilbekin on the line who used to take care of our mother, while miskeen when the a team used to go milk the goats of the widows and the orphans and when he became Khalifa, some of those elderly women, they they worried that apobec and all the law on who would no longer milk their goats
and doubleback you know, the law
Who never stopped. He didn't even take a day off from going even after becoming a leaf and he would go out there and he would milk their goats and he do these simple things. And some people told them well, bacteria I mean, I don't mean or Yeah, you don't have to do this anymore. Okay, like this is beneath you know, you've got bigger things to worry about the milking these goats and doubleback cattle, the olahraga, who said, I would hate that the title halifa
would change a good characteristic from me, such that it would be sad that he used to do something good until he became the halifa and he neglected that good. That doesn't make sense to me. If the prophets lie, some said the leader of the people is their servant. Does it make sense to me that when the title was bestowed upon me, I stopped doing the simple thing. And this is where I want us to inshallah tada segue because it's, it's really beautiful. Now I'm going to start off with a hadith you've heard a million times if you've attended a fundraiser.
All right, which is the low annual, I'm not saying I want to compete with double bucket. All right, but I'm going to I'm going to segue into that attitude from for a moment.
I'm gonna hop out of the Allahu anhu he said that I woke up one day, and I said, I swear by Allah today, I'm going to outdo apobec and I'm good. Like this is what was keeping him up at night like he always beats me. Anything I do, I will Becca does it better. Right? And I've got to get that later. I've got it. I've got it out. doable beckons today. So Amato, the law said I left with that mindset. My standard is a little bucket right? So he said I left with that mindset. And the prophets lie Selim commanded us to give sadaqa prophets lie some called for charity, or model the law and who when he got half of his wealth 50% of it, brought it to the Prophet slice Allah gave him 50% and he
said, You know the profits license said to me, what did you leave for your family? He said I left the same amount the profits license that I sent to you have excelled great job right he prays that Ahmad was so happy I got it today. I will back it shows up I'm lucky to not say oh yeah, I'm back I didn't even know what happens.
He just heard that the profit slice I'm called for soda Wilbekin on the line who brought a batch of money a profit sighs I'm said What did you might obtain to the Alec What did you leave for your family family got paid to the home Allah what asuna so I love for them Allah and His Messenger sallallahu wasallam so the Prophet slice alum smiled and he praised the bucket or the Aloha Tata animal. And Omar says Curcio, la casa de cuca, Isla Shea in aberdein said I will never be able to beat you in any good like I'm, I'm done. I tap out. I can't beat this man. He always does me in higher in good. Now I'm going to narrate to you a few narrations about what Omar saw from a Wilbekin
because what I want you to realize is the trendsetter here most of the good qualities you see an almost khilafah which was much longer the caliphate of Armand was much longer than a humble bucket was something he actually learned from one bucket Okay, so this idea of charity and give it all for the sake of Allah He got it from humble bucket bucket outdid him and kept him humble. Don't be alone who says when double Becca became Khalifa, this is extremely beautiful. By the way. I want you to actually put yourself in Medina right now. Let's say you're live there. Rebecca is the halifa he leaves the Salah, he leaves the prayer. He said every day after fetchit I will back out or the alarm
who would would go in an opposite direction of his house and he would go deep into the desert. I was very curious. What does he do out there? So Amaro, the Allahu anhu said, I'd watch him every single day go to Select and fetch it. And then Rebecca does not return home. He just walks far away into the desert. So he said, every day I'd wander in a neighborhood, where does he go? Where does he go? Where does he go? He said, One day I said to myself, that's bad. That's it. I'm gonna go follow Him and find out what he's doing. I just can't get over this curiosity of mine. So I'm gonna be alone on who said, I kept the pace from him to where he was at the end of my eyesight, meaning I walked just
as far away to where I could still see him. And then he said, I saw him go into this beat up old house. So I'm going to the law on Who said I quickly went and I hid behind. And he said he spent a long time and there wasn't like a short amount of time he spent a long time until after the sun was up, meaning it was getting hot. This is after footage. This is way past way past sunrise. And it got hot in an old bucket on the lower left the home and he made his way back to Medina. He said this was the out this is way out of the city of Medina. No, this isn't even the city of Medina right now, way out of the city of Medina. So I'm gonna do Lauren Who said I waited until I could no longer see him
meaning he made his way back to Medina and armadyl the law and instead I knocked on the door, okay. And he said, this woman opened the door. She was elderly, she was frail. She was blind. And there were a bunch of little kids running around.
so I said to her a Salaam or Aniki Masha Nicole amatola. So peace beyond to you, what is your situation? A servant of Allah. And she said that I am a blind woman.
And I have no one to take care of me. And I also have these orphans with me. You know, and the implication a lot of her kids died left behind these are her grandchildren or these were orphans. Somehow it's her. And it's some orphan children. And she says, I have no one to take care of me. And these orphans. Amato, the Allahu anhu said, Who is that visitor that comes to you every single day? The answer? She says, I don't know who he is. La youth currently is moho avida. He never once shared his name with me.
He never bothered to tell me his name.
Amato, the Allahu anhu said, Well, what does he do? Carla does that whole affair she said, may Allah reward him. Every morning he comes. Listen, by the way she details. She says he cleans my home. He washes our clothes. He grinds our wheat. He bakes our bread. He cooks our breakfast, and then he leaves. So Pamela, think about that. If this was the only narration we had about our bucket, it's incredible. Seriously, the leader, the head of the oma the halifa, the most important man in the oma right now
with his station with his status, and he goes out every morning to this house. And he doesn't even tell the woman what his name is. He's just just consider me a secret fanfare, right? There's some good,
washes the clothes, cleans the house grinds the wheat, bakes the bread, cooks the breakfast and then makes his way back
to govern the oma
that is absolutely incredible. a homeowner of the Allahu taala. And who says every single day?
like is this really what he does? Every single day? She said every day, may Allah bless him on the law. And he said, do you pay him anything? She said nothing. I'm not all the love of Thailand who started to cry. And he said after about the care of a worker, you have exhausted every successor of yours, or
you've exhausted us, anyone that comes after you, is exhausted. Because this is a standard that is impossible for us to meet a gem here, by the way, very important. Can you imagine how many deeds of Rebecca that history has never recorded?
All the you know, the books of the football and the virtues of abeka? The things that he used to do? Can you imagine how many of those secrets he actually managed to hide?
And why did he not think of himself too good to still do that thing? Because that's a man who said that he sets his own standards, he has his own terms. No one else sets terms for him and tells him this is too little for you. You don't have to do this you don't have to do that I will Beckett will be allowed I know as a standard of his own. And by the way lesson for all of us. If you're someone who does some hate that everyone knows about you better have some player that only Allah knows about.
Right? You better have some faith that only Allah subhanaw taala knows about. And let it be an involved player too. Okay and involved form of good, not just a secret charity. But this is something that that has a spiritual reminder and effect on him too. Right? going and visiting this elderly woman and her orphans every single day and doing those things. One more narration from Omar because I want to drive home this point and then we'll call it a night inshallah, because I want you to pay attention everything Omar would do in his clinic feed off again, he some lesson but there was some semblance of it that he learned from a Wilbekin who was a mentor to him, right? The standard
after the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
Welcome in our model, we're once
passing out charity, they received a record of the law and would receive some form of thought, which means that some form of charity came to the oma was donated, and will record all the law on who was distributing and Omar was helping him distribute. So there was a bedwin men that heard
the news. And so you can imagine that people would rush the message, right, and they'd rush particularly, to try to get get ahold of it, make sure that they didn't lose out. So when they heard that I went back into the law, I knew I had something he was going to distribute it. They charged and I will back it on the law, who shoved the man when he was coming to pounce on it. Basically he shoved the man just out of instinct. And Rebecca said line up line up line everyone one by one, right he tried to get the line straight.
And while they were distributing Amato, the alarm just noticeable. Beckett was so bothered so disturbed
until the man came forward. And Rebecca will be allowed Thailand who told him
Livni hit me the way that I hit you
could not digest that he pushed them in.
And he said, I want you to hit me the way that I pushed you.
And all the law on who's watching this. And the man is shocked. He's like, if that made me go ahead, take your payback. Take your event, all the lawn hose tries to tries to stop the situation. And listen to what he says double bucket. He says, Yeah, a bucket and voila, he sets agenda has said no, he said, If you do this, now, this is going to become the way forward this is the sooner This is going to be the new standard for everybody else, right. When the leader transgresses his natural, right? I mean, he's trying to keep things straight. And he's, you know, he just in a moment of anguish, or in a moment of just the heat of the moment, he pushed them out a little bit, right. And
he was justified. He's trying to get things settled.
And go back into the law. And he ignored online and he said, hit me. The man is frozen. He's not doing anything. I'll model the alarm, who says yeah, Becca, why don't you compensate him? instead? Give him extra money instead from yourself. Right? Not from an extra share from Allah, give him some extra charity if you want. And he'd be happier with that anyway, right? He's not gonna get anything out of hitting you. It's gonna set it's gonna make things hard for everybody else. Why don't you do that? record all the law and he looks at him and he says a little league would that would that be more pleasing to you? The man said, Well, actually, yeah. It would be more pleasing to Him. So I
will record all the law compensated him and stuff but think about now I'm out of the sense of justice that Alma would had. Right? He was observing a leader that would teach him how to lead as well. The last statement, dear brothers and sisters, is a statement of Imam and Muslim Rahim Allah tala, which describes this entire phenomenon. He says Masada home abubaker be castrati saw as Leon, when asked Allah when I can be Satan walk around the salary here, there's some different
terms. But this is the statement that's attributed to him. I'm listening, which means I will Becca did not did not outdo everybody else, because of the amount of fasting and the amount of prayer that he did. He said, but it was something in his heart, be Satan walk out of he saw that he there was something in the heart of Hubble Beckett that just made him outdo everybody else. Okay. What was that? It was certainty and alas promise.
And it was the desire to always do better. Right? He had this this inspiration, this constant source of motivation, this constant source of inspiration that was in his heart, that if he saw a good opportunity, he'd be the first to recognize it. And then he would commit himself wholly to it. He did not wait for others to blaze the trail for him. He was always the one doing it. Right? And that's the greatest lesson you take from humble bucket all the time, right is that set your own standards, don't let anybody else set your standards for you. You set your standards, and you'd be the one to set standards everybody else to the excellence of bubble bucket or the law and who did
not just inspire him, inspired everyone around him, right, including us to this day where we can look at that example. And we can say sometimes that's what it is. Sometimes it's not about how many records of salary he prayed. Sometimes it's not about how much money you were able to put up in that fundraiser. Sometimes it's about that moment of sitting with Allah, that moment of truthfulness with God, where you have a moment where you see a good and you do it. You don't wait for anybody else to claim that reward. You see something good and you rush to it. And you rush to it only seeking a lot of pleasure not seeking anybody else's validation or approval. We ask a lot to be pleased with him
and to join us with him and to grant us that same capacity, that same desire, that same longing for good in our lives alone. I mean
