Laos hamdulillah salat wa salam I know Silla I only he also can be here woman while up. So inshallah tada tonight I wanted to talk about really one of the most beautiful narrations that you find that narrate the Prophet sighs I'm giving special advice to one of his companions especially when the Prophet sighs I was talking to one of the younger companions someone like honestly a long time or even a bustle the a lot one humor, or others they're really special ahaadeeth they contain many treasures and the nature of the delivery also is a lesson in and of itself. Now, this narration that I'm going to share, which is narrated in Timothy, Timothy grades as a lesson Hadeeth as a good

00:00:42--> 00:01:26

Hadeeth but there are some problems with the chain of narration however the lesson beyond the weakness that might be in the chain of narration the lesson from this is really a powerful lesson. That understood pneumonic or the allowed time angle is reported to have said, polity or sort of lying sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam said to me, Yabu Nia, in adultery and to speak our terms here, Lisa kobika lishan The I had suffered from mcaliley yamane with daddy coming soon nutty woman here soon it had been a woman have been he cannot marry for the gender. He says that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said to me, oh, my son, if you are

00:01:26--> 00:02:12

capable, so again, just the nature of the delivery that this is the profit slice, I'm giving heartfelt advice to Anna cinematical. The last time I know who he raised in his own home, oh, my son, if you are capable of waking up in the morning, and ending the evening, without any hatred in your heart, for anyone, then do so. So he's telling us all the Allahu taala and Oh my dear son, look at how you wake up in the morning. And look at how you sleep at night if you can do so. removing all grudges from your heart when you wake up and when you sleep at night, then do so. And then he says to me, oh my son and this is from my son This is from my way and whoever revives my sooner than he

00:02:12--> 00:02:53

has loved me and whoever has loved me will be with me in paradise May Allah subhanaw taala make us the companions of the Prophet peace be upon him and paradise Allah amin so let's talk about this inshallah tada it's such a beautiful narration that we have to break it down from start to finish inshallah tada number one, the prophet slice alum speaking to him, giving him heartfelt advice, he loves him, he cares about him. And this is advice that has a certain level of seriousness to it. But this is life advice for your spirituality to excel in this life and in the here after midnight on. But the second part of this when you wake up in the morning and when you sleep at night. Now somehow

00:02:53--> 00:03:32

There are numerous narrations and stories about sleeping at night and making sure that you purify your heart when you sleep at night. But you know, this one actually mentions how you wake up as well. And if you realize in our Dean, there is an emphasis always on the beginnings and on the endings right that you start your day right and you end your day right there as a goddess salon, I've gotten a massage the morning remembrances and the evening remembrances. There is what you say when you sleep, you know and then what you say when you wake up, you go to sleep, saying a lot to Allah subhana wa tada bismack Allahumma and more to hear that in your name Allah I, I live in I die

00:03:32--> 00:04:10

and then you wake up in the morning and hamdulillah the ohana, vida, Martina will ensure that all praises be to the one who gave us life after death, and to him as the ultimate return. So you have the beginning you have the end to have the morning remembrance you have the evening remembrance you have what should come to your heart and to your tongue. As soon as you open your eyes and what should come to your heart and your tongue as soon as you close your eyes. So you wake up and you start the day, right? You start your morning right by setting your priorities properly by focusing your heart on the loss of data and removing anything that's going to be a distraction from having

00:04:10--> 00:04:51

that focus on a lesson. And then at night, you you make it a point to actively remove grudges from your heart. The best way this can be achieved is to actually make dua for the person to pray for the person and to to ask Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness for them and goodness for them. So every morning and every night you actively purify your heart of those grudges. And then this part here, oh my son, this is from my son, when you think about the sin of the Prophet sallallahu and he was stolen and all of the sudden as bless it and all of the sin is relevant, none of it is to be discarded. Not that which is major nor that which is minor. It is all the sin of the Prophet

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When you think about the sin of the prophets, I seldom think about this being a part of his sin, removing grudges.

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Imagine what it was like for the Prophet sallallahu sallam, to consistently over a course of 23 years, welcome people into his community that had done horrible things to him right until the day of his death, Salah lavon. He was alone. The prophets, I seldom was welcoming people into his oma that had killed family members that had run him out of Makkah, that had put him through all sorts of things that had harmed him in so many different ways. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is accepting the repentance and accepting them into the community and not mistreating them, nor reminding them of the harm that they committed against him. He has a heart to make their app for

00:05:43--> 00:06:23

them to pray for them even as they're knocking his teeth out. And he has a heart to not remind them. You know, when you think about use of it his sermon, we talked about how the Quran was revealed to the Prophet sly seven stages and the stories of the previous prophets. Those long sutras those long stories of the previous prophets were specifically revealed to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to grant firmness and tranquility to his heart, in the midst of his hardest moments like surah Yusuf and when use of it his Salaam says to his brothers, there is no blame upon you today, latter three radical young. How did the prophets lie some of them settled that in his own heart to where he

00:06:23--> 00:06:58

carried it to that momentous occasion of fertile hammock of the conquest of Mecca, where he could have held his brothers to account he could have done to them but they did to him but instead the prophets lie some repeats what his brother use it for repeated, it's settled in his heart when he was still in Mecca being persecuted. It stayed with him when he returned to Mecca as well and that's what he said latter three rally committee All right, that there's no blame upon you today. May Allah subhana wa tada forgive you. It's powerful, right that this is the sin of the prophets lie Selim, the people that tried to kill him, the people that killed his family members, the people that

00:06:58--> 00:07:36

persecuted him, the people that caused them all sorts of hurt people within the community that might have said things to the prophets lie some and done things to the prophets lie Selim. And out of his mercy, he did not retaliate or mentioned it to them, and he could have held it in his heart, and maybe, you know, give given a sharper hookah, or a harder task to those people in the community that gave him some harm, but the profit slice on constantly lets it go. In fact, one of the miracles of the Quran and one of the proofs of its divine authorship is how after the slander of it shall be Allahu taala. And how if this was the Prophet sly salon, authoring the Koran and not divine

00:07:36--> 00:08:18

revelation, do you really think it would have been when he actually asked Allah to have Buddha your fellow Lacan, forgive and show mercy, pardon overlook those who have who have who have harmed, harm the messenger, slice alum with this horrible slender, don't you want a loss of penalty to forgive you and show mercy to you? If this was a man at his Salatu was salam, who was as they claim, authoring the man himself and doing it in accordance with his personal goals wouldn't have been one of, you know, a vindictive nature of going after those that harmed him. Rather, it was forgiveness and pardoning and mercy. So, you think of the Prophet sallallahu? It was Selim and this is his

00:08:18--> 00:09:01

Sunnah. Right? This is certainly his son of how he dealt with the people that harmed him in his own community, before they came into the community, and even those within the community, afterwards, maybe unknowingly often, and what they might have said or done to the Prophet sallallahu a Salah, but he makes it a point to his Salatu was salam to remove anything from his heart against them. He does not want to meet them at his salado Islam with hard feelings. He doesn't even want members of his community to tell him things about other members of the community in a way that he might have hard feelings towards the money is Salatu was Salam. He wants to have a heart that is always Saleem

00:09:01--> 00:09:41

that is always at peace with everyone that's around him. And he's making it a point to tell us all the Allahu taala and who this is my son, this is how I am. I am not telling you to do something I don't do. And no one has been harmed more than the Prophet sallallahu wasallam called names slandered persecuted than him. Yet still, he finds it in his hearts a lot. He was solemn to always forgive people to have the capacity to forgive them, even to the moments of their death. The prophets lie some had a heart that would have been willing to accept Abuja had had Abuja hell repented and turn back to Allah and sought forgiveness for everything he put the prophets license

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

through. The prophets lie some had the heart to not only forgive economic Abuja, the son of the Pharaoh of this oma for what he had done himself and what his father had done, but he had the heart to even tell the Muslims to be sensitive to economic by not mentioning his father in ways that are humiliating or

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

him, not calling him up and calling him by name in front of economical the allotted time and one way that would hurt his feelings that was the heart of the profit slice on him. That was not easy. That is part of the ingredients of his, of his praying at night, and all of the things that we read about him It has a lot to us and I'm standing in gratitude, weeping at night, prostrating at night reciting the Quran at night, in that solitude with his Lord subhanho wa Taala. So that's the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that does something he tells us to do something he had to do harder than any one else. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says to him, oh, my son, that is

00:10:39--> 00:11:22

my son, and whoever revives my son if I have any will in quantum to have one a laugh at Toby Rooney, your biblical law we offer look on vinoba calm as Allah says, As with any Emraan See, if you truly love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then follow the profits of the lahardee was seldom and ally will love you back and Allah subhanaw taala is all forgiving, and All Merciful. So the love of the prophets lie Selim is connected to the following of the prophets lie Samson, may Allah allow us to adhere to assume that in every way Allah mean, and then he says, and whoever loves me shall be with me in paradise. What a great incentive Subhana Allah, that the closest to the Prophet

00:11:22--> 00:12:00

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in gender are those who prostrate the most and prostration is the the hallmark of the prophets liasons worship those that stay in a place of solitude. The closest to the prophets, Allah wa and he was selling them on the Day of Judgment are those that had the best character and the prophets lie Selim in the memories to be utterly mechanical of luck? In Nikola fallopian alim he was only sent to perfect our good character and so we become more like Him when we perfect our character and the closest to the prophets Alliance lm on the Day of Judgment are those that adhere to his sin? May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to adhere to assume that in the most

00:12:00--> 00:12:25

holistic way, and the closest to the prophets, like Selim, on the day of judgment, are those who send Salawat on him most frequently, a lot more suddenly, we're selling a burger avocado, Sudan Mohammed and sallallahu wasallam. May Allah sent his peace and blessings upon him, his family, his companions and allow us to be joined with him.
