Santa Monica Morocco to live in a castle Koran weekly This is your brother almost today man. Welcome back to the superstar series as we're starting off with the 10 promise paradise. You know you might have somebody in your family that you're really proud of like your dad, your mom, your uncle, your husband, your wife, your kids, brother, sister, maybe maybe your locally mom, or maybe not. But the point is, is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to brag about one particular person in his family. He said let He who has someone that he looks up to look at who my uncle is. My uncle is Santa Claus. So the law of Thailand, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam love this man, he

00:00:58--> 00:01:34

adored him, Southern La Jolla sent him and he counted him from those who are guaranteed as the 10 promised paradise and on top of that sad little the Allahu anhu was given the guarantee of paradise on more than one occasion. So he was given the guarantee of Paradise, and the Battle of whether the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once guaranteed him paradise individually. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave a very, very special gift, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made to Allah subhanaw taala to accept sides. So everything said would make dua for Allah subhanaw taala would answer his door. Now, you might wonder how is it that a person can have that special quality

00:01:34--> 00:02:12

and by the way, it's a proven quality. In fact, the Sahaba were afraid of offending sorry, we will cost because they were afraid that he might make against them. And there's an incident that took place in Iraq one time, where there was someone inside the viola Han, who was a governor in Iraq Under Armour and viola Han. And, and other times he he led delegations in Iraq and someone once cursed, I'd even be thought about the law, in His presence and sagittal. The Allahu anhu said, Don't curse it, or I'll curse you. And he continued to curse early on the Allahu anhu. And said may draw against that man. And there are various narrations that say that a beast came into Iraq. And we'd

00:02:12--> 00:02:42

never seen that beast before. And it stomped that same man to death. So this was a guy that you really did not want to mess with. But you know what, that's not what I'm going to talk about today. What is the special quality we can extract from Saudi and you know what, amongst many, but I was thinking about this panel a lot as Muslim communities what is it that we suffer with most and someone who would say it's ego? Some would say that there's too much politics in the masjid. But you know what the problem is not that there's too much politics in the masjid. The problem is, is that those people that should be productive sometimes engage themselves in negative politics, and they

00:02:42--> 00:03:18

don't do what they need to be doing. So they don't allow themselves to be productive with sad little the allowed tada and who he lived for a long time. And he lived to see the fitna that took place when earth model the low tide and who was murdered and the fitna that would follow after that. Now sorry, though, the allowance I knew his approach, although he was someone who was possibly in line to become halifa he was on the shore of Omaha tabo, the Allahu anhu to decide the next Khalifa which was Earth, Manuel de la Cylon who he decided that he wanted to avoid the negativity. And in fact, there's a narration from a man by the name of Al Husayn even hotter as Jerry while the Allahu

00:03:18--> 00:03:56

Allahu, who said that I made out to Allah subhanaw taala, when earth model the Allahu anhu was murdered, to give me a sign as to what I should do. So he said, I had this dream that I was between the dunya and I was between the archaea, I was between the life of this world and I was between the hereafter. And I came across a group of melodica, a group of angels. So I met the angels and I asked them, where are the Shahada? Where are the martyrs and he wanted to see our phenomenal the Allahu taala and who, so the melodica said the mother, the martyrs are even higher. So he said that I went up, and I was looking for the martyrs until I kept on going up and I met Rasulullah sallallahu

00:03:56--> 00:04:33

alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet Ibrahim Ali is set up. So he says, I heard the conversation that was taking place between Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Ibrahim alayhis salaam. So he says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Abraham alayhis salaam is still fairly Amati make a step five seek forgiveness for my oma. So, Ibrahim alayhis salam, he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam industry, he says, You do not know what your mama did after you left. They killed their Imam and they started to spill each other's blood. So Ibraheem alehissalaam that son said something very powerful in this dream of sustainable hottie is about the law. I know.

00:04:33--> 00:05:00

Brahim Ali has Salaam said that it will come after Allah Holly disart said I wish they would have done as my family. My close friend, Rahim Ali Salaam is the close friend of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And everywhere he Malia's Salaam, is saying I wish they would do as my close friend said had done so in her saying woke up with the alarm on home. And he went immediately to set the alarm on who to tell him about the dream. So what was I doing while this was taking place?

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

Sara got the Allahu taala and who decided to buy some sheep and to avoid the fitna altogether and to raise sheep avoiding all of the politics avoiding all of the negativity. So in her saying it niharika he went to the side to tell him about this dream. So sad little the Allahu anhu Fatiha he became so happy. He was so happy and overjoyed and he said, What a loser a person would be if it was all him It said I would not take him as a holiday. So her saying said I took this dream to mean that I should seek advice from you. So her saying said to him, what should I do so sad little the Allahu anhu said, Do you have any sheep? He said, No. He said, Go buy some sheep, and busy yourself with

00:05:36--> 00:06:15

your sheep until the fitna is over. Now does that mean that sorry about the Allahu anhu became unproductive? I mean, after this entire life of, of good deeds of striving with the messenger sallallahu wasallam of fighting alongside the messengers lysosome of spreading the deen of Allah subhanaw taala all over the world, does that mean that side of the law on who took a backseat and said when this is all done, then I'll go back to being productive? No. And in fact, we can find a very interesting narration that side that will be allowed to add on who actually went to China side went to China in the year 650. And he actually met with the Emperor there. And he actually built a

00:06:15--> 00:06:54

Masjid and gang drought which is in Guangzhou, which is actually still and I know I'm butchering it, so I'm sorry if you're from China, but Guangzhou. And he built that Majid there almost 1400 years ago until today that Majid is still there. And sad little the Allah Han who proceeded to do Tao in China, until he found that the fitna had calmed down. Then he came back and he continued to do the good deeds that he was doing before. So the point that I want to draw from all of this is just because so the quality that we can take from all of this is persistence and being productive sides while the Allahu anhu insisted on being productive, productivity, Tao, if you truly have sincerity,

00:06:54--> 00:07:25

and if you truly have a passion, nothing will stop you from doing good photography a lot. So go ahead and do good deeds whenever you can. If you're living in a community where you have some negativity, where there are two uncles that are cursing each other out, or where this group of people is calling this group of people deviant and this group of people is calling this group of people deviant or people have shut them shut you out of the masjid because you're too young and, and they don't think you have anything to offer. You will never let anyone allow you to keep you out of the dour if you are truly sincere. So we learned from this great companion about the Allahu taala

00:07:25--> 00:08:05

and who that truly the one who loves Allah subhanho wa Taala will always find a way to serve Allah subhanho wa Taala and you have no excuse whatsoever because the opportunities for the devil to serve the Tao of Allah subhanaw taala are are unlimited. So we asked Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to be like this great companion side that'll be a lot of time to implement this advice in our lives in sha Allah tala Next week, we'll continue with another one of the superstars the 10 promised paradise does not come along Hayden was salam o alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh this audio is brought to you by Muslim Central. please consider donating to help cover our running costs and future
