will be geared towards the youth, and also their parents. Even if the parents are not here, or those parents who are here, they will be all in childhood. We try to all benefit from these series, especially in the story, a story of a father and a son.
And a father and a son. Who's the father and who's the son.

A story of a father and a son
of a man who's the father here. And who's the son? Yes, but that's not the sort of weekend today.
But it's very close.
A lot. No.
No, Bowman's made in fact, all right, let me make it easy for you. This man is not a prophet. yet. He's mentioned it was his name.
was the one that went along with a stick.
Did you bring the stick? I always ask
that you cheated.
Just because you're a nice
man and his son.
Look man, brothers and sisters, we have the law the the nickname him as Look, man, and happy. Look, man, the wise and I will tell you why. He was wise. And I will also tell you what is wisdom, wisdom, wise wisdom. In Adam, it's called hikma Hakeem wisdom. This man was not a prophet. In fact, this man was a slave
who used to live in a senior long time ago. Right? And then he moved to Egypt. And he was still working for his master.
One day, his master asked him, Look, man, can you go and slaughter sheep and bring me the tastiest? The best thing in the sheep.
So he went and he started the sheep and he brought him two things. He brought him the dunk. And the heart. You guys
really? Were ours. We love
to talk to
you people are Canadians. That's why I
love the tongue in Morocco.
We love it. And the heart you guys eat the heart.
Sounds like with barbarians here. The heart is so good. Anyways, he brought him to this the heart of the at the time. And then he asked him another question. He says, All right now I needed to go sponsor another ship and bring to me the worst thing in it. And he brought him the heart of the tongue.
So his master asked him, I asked you to slaughter a sheep and bring me the best thing in it and you brought me the tongue and the heart. And then they asked you to start another sheep and bring me the worst thing in and you still brought me the heart and the tongue. How come? He says yes, indeed they are. If they are pure, then they are the best thing in it. And if they are rotten, if they are bad, then they are the worst thing in the in the in the sheep. So his master was so impressed by him. He set him free isn't go you're free.
And then look man, he moved from Egypt to fasting was from fasting
or Palestine fall asleep. Wakey wakey.
This man, this man and this map. All right. Cool.
Where was that?
You move to us they are just making sure that you guys are in most of our state who was in philosophy. Get the time.
Who was interesting at that time.
You know you're doing and she's doing you know
Look man, it was already so he moves too fast the horse in fasting at that time
who was in fasting at the time.
But there was somebody I Oh,
what he did when he traveled but it was not there. No, no, no, no, no.
You said it.
You just say that
spoke to me when I asked the question and you said
he'll It's him. The Father the Son.
See, I'm just trying to give you the Canada thing
that was was there. That was there though the, the province. He was there at the time. So he moves too fast thing. And then he started, you know, working for the road.
And they would notice something really amazing with this man that he was very talented. And he was smart. And hacking wise. Hacking wise. Do you know how many times hikma is mentioned in the program? Just so you know, sigma means wisdom. How many times this word wisdom is mentioned in the app 20 times.
What is hikma? What is wisdom? And I hope you are also because even if your parents are here, please go back home and tell them what's hikma, the definition of hikma, the definition of wisdom.
The definition of wisdom is this. Very simple. To say the right thing at the right time.
At the right place.
Let me explain. Yeah, Annie, I see somebody doing something wrong. And he is front of people and you know,
front of his friends. And so I want to correct that thing that he's doing wrong. Is it the right time to correct what I'm doing? No. Is it the right place? Maybe not. You know what time? It hasn't what you're saying? Do you know them? Have you heard of a hazard per se? Or are they?
If it's if it's? What's his name? dropped me my busy. I don't want to talk to him. Yeah, Jim, I don't. What did your father say?
About the phone? Oh, he was not there. He wasn't. Please forgive him this time.
When was I
said one time is so mad. We can all do it. What we'll do is right. And this man did not know how to make. So this is what they tried to do. He said, Could you please come? Me and my brother are arguing. I say I make better than him. My brother sent him his birth order than me. Could you please come and you judge? All right, you judge. And they both make the same model the same way. But they tried to teach him a lesson. So they were making little property to show them and how to make work. And then at the end, they said I don't know who makes better than me and my brother. He said you both make better than me.
Yeah, and he used or they use something called hikma. They did not correct him front of people. And he was older than them as well. Sometimes you see somebody who's older than you and age maybe there was something wrong and if you go to that person, a yo uncle what not in oh man he doing this is wrong. This is what did you know this is
yesterday saying that we know this is the best way to do this? Well, this is the right way of doing it. That man would first of all, he will not listen to you. Number two, he will say what do you know? I know I know better than you know. So you have to pick the right time to say something the right place the right moment.
The right you know the right to the right in the right words as well. You have to pick the right words, the right time, the right place these what we call hikma wisdom. So
not man was very wise.
So when he noticed though, that he said that Look, man was really talented. Look, they're all just to make something really important. He was the very first man who invented something called shields. Have you know what a shield is? No, they are more you know, like the people for war. They put the shields. You know, the first person who invented this is the old Elisa. He was an inventor, just like many other prophets, they were inventors. So there won't was Switzerland with Matt and look man never asked him the questions. He was just look notice and he's doing his own thing. But then at the end when he finished, you know, making the sheet he says Do you know what this is? said? No, I
thought he said this is a sheet. And then he asked him to become a teacher. In fact, it was luck, man, but people don't know
was not planted in the land
who in fact, helped in educating in raising so they met and he said, so they might is the son of that with
all this, Allah does not mention not only
about lotman Allah only mentions one story very short about luck met this great man, this very wise man. And I'd like you. In fact, I want to ask somebody here to help me recite the poem. I'm going to ask somebody here to help me recite from verse number 13. And to verse number 19 solar plot, man.
We gotta altogether, recite it and explain it and live it together. We're going to live this beautiful, beautiful story or advice given by a man to his son, that's all and so much so somehow he's not a prophet. yet. Allah made one full song
about this man, and it's called solar clock, man. Imagine they're so distracted by him. They're so familiar. Right? Allah picks and name what you okay, how do you understand this one? Allah subhana wa tada bixa sola after a name of a person. What do you think of that person?
So a lot, so I knew I saw Ibrahim there is no solid. Oh, yes, Mohammed, there is no sort of Adam. How about Yes. What do you think why Allah would make a saw after a name of a person. So as a man, the wife of a man Why, why marry? Why, why? why her grandma? You know why her mother? Why? Why would Allah make us boy or that?
You know that one saw that after a name of a person.
They have to be they have to be very special.
They have to be really strong and a man for Allah subhanho wa Taala to make one full solar after the name Yes.
Absolutely exact Lucha destroy would have a very good message to be delivered. So lachemann was not a prophet. of the others were but not mine wasn't a prophet. He was a wise man. So I'd like who can help me here to recite from verse 13 to 19 because we're gonna go through together and recited and explain. I will explain. I just needed to recite for me, so let's talk man who can help. Can you help? Jeff's a lot of man?

In fact, if I had time, I can just stop here. And then just here I can give maybe 2345 lectures. But you know, we don't have time. What if all

Oh, yeah. I saw in my dream about him just is for a service. May I see my gym that I'm swallowing you'll see says yeah, he did not call me. What's the difference between the morning and evening.
He likes his he's still a father who doesn't like his son, or daughter.

Oh my beloved. Oh, I wish I could hug you but I can't. You know, because you deserve a hug. Oh, yeah. juneja Oh, my beloved. Oh, my beloved son. Yeah. And he it's not only to slay you belittle something to make it look beautiful. So he's saying no, just yet. But look at the advice because also the prophets use the same age. What happened?
The Prophet Muhammad also use the same kind of, you know, context when he's given an advice to
to the Sahaba the kids
like him at best he used to tell him Yeah, buena, buena buena. So here is this, you know, far given advice, but before he gives the advice, he calls him. Oh, my beloved son. So now you're all ears. You're listening. The first advice he says, Yeah.
Oh my son. Do not worship anything other than Allah. don't associate anyone with ALLAH. You know what the message here is? Yeah, Buddha. Yeah, say and stick to stick to the ILA.
I want to hear it.
Oh, my son or my daughter stick to Allah and he studied him about love Allah love. I
don't associate the one with the worship of Allah Xhosa. It's very important. And here, maybe a quick story that happens to there's just pops up right now. A split happened in the Battle of Alhambra, the Battle of the Confederates, the Battle of it has that Have you heard of this battle? And have you been in Medina? Anyone? You guys have been in Medina before? Have you been Medina. All right. So there is a there's this battle that happened in Medina in November. So let me give you the trench is quicker, a lot quicker to store. It's a long one, but I'll summarize it for you. Wow.
was the the there was all this confidence all of these other, you know, tribes that got together to fight against the Muslims, the Muslims were very you know just alone and you have this 1000s and 1000s of you know other tribes So when did the Prophet do because the Prophet now he's, he's, he's been he's busy besieged, he was under siege by all these tribes came to him a man will give him an amazing idea that was not known to the house at the time. A man who came from Persia was his name.
Salomon fallacy. So man fallacy in our sentiment fans.
He answered the question.
We do it to
her she did.
But she didn't answer. She said.
What did you say?
Got a pal. Right there. She's defending you. Okay, so where was I now?
said, matter of fact,
we used to do something like a trick at a time. You know, in the past, we used to build something called a trench. We used to dig a trench lucky, huge, you know,
like, no, not a hole. But it's a big trench. And the trash was like four kilometres long, to make it so long and so wide, that the enemy could not cross over. So they took the profit and has to contend days when the Sahaba you know, to 1500 of them, you know, they were built in this transfer kilometres long, big church. So when he came with the other tribes, they saw this trash and they said, We
don't know but this there must be somebody who gave him this idea. And then only if you had a very, very genuine hobbyhorse, you'd be able to cross. So came a man by the name of amber blue, would you manage to cross with his horse? And then at the time, they used to call for the door before a fight, you know, like today, say a man, step up
a party anymore.
never know who wants to fight. A duel was a duel. So this man, I don't know what was 80 years old. But he was such a very fierce man. So how are these 298 years old? But even so much so that the women at the time they used to scare the children if they're naughty? If we don't, you know, don't be
so much, right? So he came in, he says anybody wants to fight the Prophet Mohammed and who was their Prophet Mohammed and had 100 worry, they were too big, Sahabi scale were so tall.
If they were to ride a horse, their feet would touch the ground.
He was one of
Imagine, you know how horse how big a horse it is, guys, you have a right to horseback riding a bicycle.
He was there. And another was there. And the Oba was there and the zoo was there. So he said was the fight. Nobody dare to come. And because the need is, the one is a killer. He is a series of guys that is like MMA, not even I mean, we have
nobody else to come out. And then one kid stood up.
There was only 17 years old. What was his name?
How are you
talking to the
To be certain age.
for it, he was only 17 and then used to observe so I go and then and then the Prophet going depth says no, have you sit down. And then the Prophet says, Who wants to go and fight these men and I guarantee that if you die, I guarantee you're going to go, that's what you want. Everybody has an agenda. So if we go find this guy who were to die, I guarantee him who wants to fight metal. Nobody stood up
Except it again the second time.
And then the Prophet put him down against it sit down.
And then for the third time The Prophet said who wants to fight this guy. I guarantee him enough. Nobody's to accept
saw the profits of it.
It's a very sit down
part of a penny, I'm afraid that he may kill you. And then the ad said yes or no.
At the profit,
you made the apprentices. So he went, and then he took the sword. They were all wearing the shields, you know, they did not know one another with the helmets and all that. So King, this guy out in the woods, and the night
when I was a warrior says Allah, anyway, I didn't mean he didn't I, oh, my son, go go go get me somebody who's bigger. Somebody my size somebody my age. He says it said, I would go under only three conditions. I would go back I would retreat, but under three conditions. condition number one, you say that?
I'm up in the woods said I would not say that you now have a llama even if I see myself to have fire.
Why am I connecting this with what document said. Document says oh my son, laughter should be don't associate no one with the worship of Allah. Those people they used to associate people there's almost no data and then your that allows the truth they knew, but they did not want to worship Allah alone. They used to worship these idols that will get them close to Allah Subhana. Allah with that, as we said, I would not say that Allah, Allah Allah. Even if I were to see myself in here far, I still wouldn't say it was the second condition. second condition. He finishes yet the Shiva is at the time when you know, the Muslims were to, you know, if there's the enemy, and if there's a fight,
then there's always they say you pay this tax, and then we'll support you in order to protect you but you pay our tax just like you in Canada we did that we set up the tax as a carrier that will will, will will, will assist you and support you. The messages are not paying nausea. Then he says third option, you fight me.
If you kill me, then I will go and then the guy that's so mad, he jumped from his horse it is or killed his horse, and then they start fighting together. It was such a very physical fight. The narrator said in the story, there was some custom biryani
not a storm, but because it was in the sand it got so dusty, they could not see who was fighting. And all of a sudden they heard a scream. Imagine like a movie and a movie. And then you see like this, like white smoke. And then somebody comes out from the smog. And it was added to
the story here the essence of the story is he would not say that in a handler he they knew the meaning of life. So this metal his son, or my son, don't associate anyone would
worship Allah Allah see that either. be close to Allah, you shouldn't be saved. That's verse number 13. Verse number 14 was the second advice
karma karma. Oh, wait.
You're very nice with
the second advice is telling him is about and what the day is about parents. Yeah, well, yeah.
No, no. Before before that. was
saying that in the world today. More.
Now he started talking listen is a man
advising him about the parents, but his advice in him about his mom
talking about the mom. I'm a father. I'm talking to my son. Maybe I should give him advice about me how he should you know, respect me as a father. Oh, he should obey me as a father. Yet this father is giving advice to his son to honor the mother.
This is why the Prophet says
isn't it? Your mother, your mother, your mother? Your mother who gave up her dreams for your dreams. Mom, mom, such a beautiful word mom to say mom is your mom's here. Guys your mom's
Your mom is here.
give her your mom.
This man came to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he wanted to go for like the fight for war. And then, and then he told the Prophet he wanted to go. And then the Prophet asked him, john, do you have your parents? Are your parents still alive? He said, Yes, I left them. And they didn't want me to leave. And they saw that I left them crying. He says, go back and make them laugh. Just like you made them cry. How many times have you made your parents cry? Or maybe your mother cry? Maybe your father wouldn't show you that he is crying. He would go somewhere else. And he would cry because the father the father is a man. He will not show that you know, but sometimes you break his
heart so much that you know, he even chefs, you know, it's shed some tears. But how many times have you guys may be broken your parents hearts
once or twice?
Have you ever made the hygienist you only broke her heart?
Or deceived her? No, she wouldn't do that. She would make the heart for you. Although you hurt her, although you deceived her, either when you were you know, when she was pregnant. When she was the dawn Remember that? Do you
remember when your mother was pregnant?
was pregnant with you? You don't remember. She used to feed herself just so she can feed you.
You took so much from her like iron and calcium, if you want some talk about science and whatnot. And she took so much you know, such she can give you
and then when when you know like Eliza just says, go back to that soil again. When you know of risotto houfy I mean, hamato kohan Coco ha, she bore him in pain. And she delivered him in pain. This is a very, very important, you know,
verse here, when you mother and I'll come back to you What?
I'm still talking about the same one, still talking about the mother.
I'm just talking about the mother.
When she born and when she held you in her womb, she held you right? And she was suffering in pain in pain and she you know, a mom who seven months or seven months pregnant or eight months pregnant, nine months pregnant, the way she moves, the way she acts the way she she's in pain. she's in pain. The Father is not in pain.
That isn't that he's not in pain. The mom was in pain. You know, for months, she's still changing. You know, she's though her hands are becoming big and her feet are bigger and bigger. Remember, remember, you know, and then she's been no changes, no changes. She goes through little changes. The fifth month, six months, seven months. And then imagine you know what that one guy did? You know once yesterday, we were in this personal development course. And then one sister She came she was given give us a speech. And before the speech, she gave us some ice. And she told us each of our long pixel, pixel, or pixel walk us ice cubes. And then we were holding the ice cubes. And then she
She's talking about you know her speech, but none of us are paying attention to her. All of us are paying attention this ice is hurting our heads. And then she comes back in a couple of messages is listening to me. I'm sure you're not listening to me. Your.
Your your head right it's in pain because of the eyes because of the cue. Just like when a woman is pregnant.
We don't see what she going through and whatnots she's going to love pain yet. The kid is not listening not helping me. The Father is not helping maybe she's going through so many things. You know, this is the mom.
So the Prophet told him that mazes, God make them laugh. Just like you make them cry. If your mothers are alive, you are lucky.
If your mothers are really alive, you certainly are lucky. And I will tell you something to do today inshallah. Before tomorrow, go to your mom's have them online. This is my my, my very golden advice to you. If your mother's alive. You go to them tonight. You give them a hug and tell the mom please make draft. That's all you have to say. Mom make that for me. What law is
meant to me only in reading. Okay. How did notice to her? While law he could be the vehicle that will drive you to
the hub from a mother to her son.
You ask somebody who has lost his mom and they will tell you
they will tell you what they will do in this life. He will say a lot of them will say I wish just to see my mom one last time.
This man I met him in met Medina chef. His name is Ahmed said oh he was totally paralyzed. This man is on YouTube by the way.
I met him in Medina. They asked him about his wishes.
Have you heard of this?
This man is in the movie paralyzed you know fully paralyzed he's on the other car accident so he says you have any wishes happy wishes my first wish is to be able to make one such that
you can pray you can I know he prays now just by his eyes he says when you see me like this you feel sorry for me but when I if I were to tell you that I don't pray you guys don't feel sorry you wouldn't feel sorry for me when I did I don't pray he says I wish to make one such The only one I had my my strength and my health. I wasted so much time. I was in so much time now. I wish now he said now I wish to and he says I wish to make one such that I want to take my soul and die while making session. That's my first wish. My second wish he says I wish to just look at Annecy doctor and that you have now you see how you turn it is I wish to be able to turn one visual

Have you guys heard you
it will never be like the same I guess your mom was
locker man at least the same advice. The other advice The second piece of advice, the advice of the parents I'm gonna stop you in a couple of minutes. And we have another seven eight minutes journey.
the advice of the parents but yet you know although as a father but he's giving advice to him about the mark you know about his mother to look after his mother to respect to honor his mother level imagine that had been handled
as a lesson
about how you should lower the weight of humanity before your parents, your parents, they need your help. Maybe not now because Mashallah this deal. They can look after themselves, because to take care of themselves. But alando ss
when their back becomes a little bit crooked, yeah. And when they get old.
That's maybe when they would really need your assistance. And sometimes in some countries, and unfortunately even in some Muslim countries nowadays, what happens when a father grows old or maybe one of molecules or some of them what they do, they put them into this
you put your father in a retirement home or their mom every time
you put her because she when she eats he she makes a mess. Or maybe you follow what he is because he's grown old, he makes a mess and he talks to him because he's old. They don't make no sense and they wouldn't want to take a shower they don't want to take a bath and these just nag and nag and nag because this is how they are when they horrible
if you deal with them and support them and honor them
and ask the lesson
always say that to Allah have mercy upon them as they have helped me when I was or how they raised me and that's the final swabbing or the final area in a one more area before we break for mother I want somebody else to recite that in the back.
Somebody somebody who has memorized it indeed you have memorized it
did you memorize what up man? Yes.
Okay, baby Oh boy.
The other verse
Yeah, when I in

If I if I have time, after Salah Can I pick up the phone maybe 1015 minutes after startup to finish the advice of luck man. This is like for me this is maybe one of the best advice is given to the sun. Yeah, when they are in the investment.
