similar recommend Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Hawala he was so happy Orman, why Allah, I share the Hadith about this topic which is Hadith narrated my soul banlaw, the alliance, the freed slave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which basically was saying that the Prophet SAW Selim said, Who will guarantee one thing for me, and I will guarantee agenda for him. So they'll Ban said I can. So the prophesy Sam said, don't ask people anything. He said yes. And the narrator said that he saw ban didn't ask for anything. after that. And even another narration you said that so bands whip would drop from him while he's riding. So he wouldn't say to

00:00:51--> 00:01:30

anybody pass me that whip. Rather, he would get down and parcel the get Heather with himself. And that's something similar that has been narrated with other Sahaba like Abu Bakr of the Alliance, there's narration by Muhammad that he would, you know, he wouldn't be writing his camel, and the whip would drop from him who would stop and he would bring the camel down. Now I'm sure you can imagine the camel is a high animal for like riding a horse. Even a horse is not easy to come up and get off an offer. But the camel, you can also jump off a camel, you have to bring the camel down, even then you'd bring the camel down, get off, it could pick up the whip and then get back on the

00:01:30--> 00:02:15

camel and get the camel off again and move again. All of that, because when he was asked, he said I took a pledge with the prophesy cylinder, I would not ask people for anything. So that's how they understood this whole concept of not asking people for anything in this very broad sense. Obviously, if we wanted to, you know, examine that further, we could say that the meaning here, in that sense is to, you know, to understand that it's about not begging, you know, not begging from people not asking for food or money or things like that. We have the Hadith here. Again, raised by Muhammad, my beloved companion, my colleague SallAllahu Sallam into the Prophet SAW, Selim commanded me to do

00:02:15--> 00:02:49

several things, to love the poor, to be close to them to not go to look at those who are below me, in terms of you know, in terms of financial status or level not to look at those who are above me. And he commanded me to uphold the ties of kinship, even if they turn away. And he commanded me not to ask anyone, for anything. So you can see as a repeated theme that the Prophet SAW Selim encouraging the Sahaba and obviously, the broader OMA to rely on a lush Pantai depend on Allah first and foremost, and then to

00:02:50--> 00:03:32

depend on oneself in terms of not asking people, even as we saw in this narration, about not isn't asking for weapons, false false from you, it's that to that extent, and that kind of sort of mentality really here about trying to change your perspective, in terms of what you you do, obviously, when you are begging, you know, that's why I still am in this Hadees why I have a moment and in other Hadees you know, he really discouraged begging you know, if you really knew what is entailed in asking meaning begging, then no one would walk to anyone to ask them anything, and then the other hotties for one of you to go and gather firewood on his back, it is better than him asking

00:03:32--> 00:04:07

others who may give him or deny him narrated by an Mojari. So even just to go through the physical notions of you know, going gathering firewood, carrying it on your back sort of physical activity but better than to ask people for anything and I sort of the general notion here is about avoiding, avoiding begging because you when you are begging it puts you in a weak position and that's why the seminar how to you said earlier don't earlier Hi nominally I have the upper hand is better than the lower hand meaning the one that

00:04:08--> 00:04:51

gives is better than the one that takes and also it is about encouraging people you know, not to rely on others but really to have kind of almost like a dependence or loss of habitat if you if you need something first and foremost turn to Allah Subhana Allah ask Allah your needs, made to make that connection with Allah Subhana Allah not just in begging but in all aspects. Because then you know more specifically is like we said it's a negative thing in one direction. Which is my Samurai regiondo from from narrated by Buddha would the process have said when you ask people you know, these questions that you asked for people begging is like injuries it's like wound it's like

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

scratches that are on your, your that a person will will will bring to his face. So if anybody wants those cracks

00:05:00--> 00:05:27

Here's the link, go ahead and if anybody wants to leave them, then let him not ask. So it's an encouragement to seek, you know, seek a loss pantalla now, like we said, you know, obviously asking people for help or support in matters of, of the dunya and so on. It's not hard we're not saying It's haram, but this is a high level is one of the modes to attain. Jana is guaranteeing the process and as we've seen the Hadith guaranteeing

00:05:29--> 00:05:30


00:05:31--> 00:05:49

if you do this, you will be guaranteed a Janessa mo now, if you need something you need to ask people or even in the matters of deem you need help you need assistance, then then the line is fine that is closing is wrong. But this is the kind of understanding that it is given to us by this hadith Mala Spandana
