Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim

00:00:05--> 00:00:07

Salam are a command to live with

00:00:10--> 00:00:16

100 Allah help in the name salatu salam ala. So you've been Marcelino how to meaning the being.

00:00:17--> 00:00:18

Remember the wider

00:00:19--> 00:00:30

hegemon in my bag of our ministry Vani regime. Smilla Rahmanir Rahim in Allahu Amala Iike who is Soluna

00:00:31--> 00:00:35

Johan de Dena and also while he was living in Spain,

00:00:37--> 00:00:42

la himself some data so you then move in in the V me what are the heaps sentence

00:00:44--> 00:00:45

respect to listeners.

00:00:48--> 00:00:53

In the previous session, I began speaking about

00:00:55--> 00:00:57

how hassad envy

00:01:01--> 00:01:02

I've already

00:01:03--> 00:01:09

provided the Islamic definition of envy and jealousy,

00:01:11--> 00:01:14

both malignant envy and benign envy.

00:01:17--> 00:01:19

I also explained how

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

envy is so destructive.

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

In fact, that will

00:01:27--> 00:01:31

say that envy was one of the first sins and the heavens.

00:01:32--> 00:01:40

And it was also the first sin on earth which led to RB killing his brother hobby.

00:01:41--> 00:01:48

And that is the story referenced in the Holy Quran when Allah says what lie they hidden beneath them,

00:01:50--> 00:01:51

and relate to them

00:01:53--> 00:01:56

the story of the two sons of Adam with truth.

00:01:59--> 00:02:02

Envy has been the cause of warms

00:02:04--> 00:02:07

of mad, mayhem, killing

00:02:09--> 00:02:12

between individuals as well as on a large scale.

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

Throughout history.

00:02:17--> 00:02:27

Every individual is both an envy guilty of envy himself and herself and there's also a potential victim of envy.

00:02:29--> 00:02:37

And even the prophets of Allah alayhi wa salam were not spared of the harm of envy.

00:02:40--> 00:02:53

Every messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was opposed by his people. And there were many reasons or a myriad of reasons for people refusing to accept their messengers. But often one of the

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

reasons was envy.

00:02:58--> 00:03:04

As Allah says, way, their job is to call the knock Manhattan, the mythical man oto Rasul Allah,

00:03:05--> 00:03:11

that when a sign came to them, they said and Allah is referring to people of the past,

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

that we will never believe.

00:03:15--> 00:03:16

Until we are given

00:03:17--> 00:03:20

the like that which was given to the messengers.

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

I explained how

00:03:25--> 00:03:32

even the Prophet Yusuf alayhi salam, his own father advised him even though this was a family of Prophets,

00:03:34--> 00:03:37

that do not relate to your beautiful dreams, your brother's lest

00:03:39--> 00:03:59

law toxic sort of yuck. And with the cafe, a key doula Qaeda do not relate to your dream to your brothers less they plot and scheme against you. And why would they do that? He would be the result of envy, they were already they already harbored reservations and

00:04:00--> 00:04:07

some envy towards him because they felt that he was chosen by his father more beloved by his father.

00:04:09--> 00:04:14

And the relating of the stream would only compound

00:04:15--> 00:04:21

their sense of being deprived of their father's love

00:04:23--> 00:04:26

and their suspicion that he was the favored one.

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

This will only add to that envy.

00:04:31--> 00:04:41

And indeed it did. And they plotted against the brother and we have the whole story of the life of the Prophet Yusuf alayhi salam, so even the prophets of Allah

00:04:42--> 00:04:43

were never

00:04:46--> 00:04:47


00:04:48--> 00:04:50

from the heart

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

of envy,

00:04:54--> 00:04:57

envy from within the family envy from their own people.

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

And indeed, as the

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

It was a case where the prophets Allah, Allah Almighty who was

00:05:03--> 00:05:20

and this was one of the sections where I left off that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam. He was the victim of envy and Makoto Makara Rama. When the Quraysh said of him called will Odin was Raha the Quran Allah Rajan. In mineral Korea, Tina lien.

00:05:22--> 00:05:30

And they said that why wasn't this book revealed to a great man of the two cities, referring to Makkah or Bife.

00:05:32--> 00:05:35

And the reason they said this is that they couldn't accept

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

it, that someone who,

00:05:42--> 00:05:47

although they saw him as being honest and trustworthy, before the revelation of

00:05:48--> 00:05:54

someone they saw as being, although they saw him as being honest and trustworthy and noble.

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

They didn't regard him as being wealthy.

00:06:00--> 00:06:04

Nor did they regard him as being a person of power and influence.

00:06:06--> 00:06:09

Not one of their clique, not one of the elite.

00:06:12--> 00:06:16

And so, in their view, in their worldly view,

00:06:17--> 00:06:22

if he had received the revelation of the Quran and communication from Allah,

00:06:24--> 00:06:28

this suddenly gave him a leap over them.

00:06:29--> 00:06:36

And despite their power, their politics, their wealth, their influence their supporters,

00:06:38--> 00:06:44

despite everything overnight, in their view, this individual

00:06:46--> 00:06:46


00:06:50--> 00:06:52

surpassed them,

00:06:53--> 00:06:54

and was now

00:06:55--> 00:06:57

beyond their reach, and they were no match for him.

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

Thus, they burned with envy. And they said what the previous peoples have said, which is that we refuse to believe in them.

00:07:12--> 00:07:17

Unless we are given what he has been given, why was he chose,

00:07:18--> 00:07:25

and this is the essence of this is where I left off. But this is the essence of it. One of the this is the essence of envy.

00:07:28--> 00:07:33

The envious person has a false self sense of self entitlement

00:07:35--> 00:07:42

and arrogance, that I deserve this not that person Ight.

00:07:43--> 00:07:48

So one, it's a false sense of self entitlement.

00:07:49--> 00:07:51

It's arrogant, it's selfish.

00:08:00--> 00:08:03

And when a person burns green with envy,

00:08:04--> 00:08:05

their thinking

00:08:06--> 00:08:06

is warped.

00:08:08--> 00:08:12

Their perception, their perspective is warped.

00:08:13--> 00:08:15

They are unable to think straight.

00:08:16--> 00:08:19

their anger, their passion,

00:08:22--> 00:08:41

their envy, their inner array they see with rage and glow green with envy. This warps their thinking distorts their thinking. And so they say the most illogical things, they believe the most illogical things and they act irrationally.

00:08:43--> 00:08:44

They do act irrational.

00:08:48--> 00:08:52

And so the Quraysh refused to believe in Rasulullah sallallahu.

00:08:54--> 00:08:59

And they demanded that, why was he chosen?

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

It's a great objection, envy leads to objection. And the objection is against Allah it's always against Allah.

00:09:10--> 00:09:22

When the Quraysh said that why wasn't the Quran reveal to a great man of the two cities? They were objecting to Allah the Why did Allah choose to reveal the Quran to Muhammad? Allah

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

Subhan Allah hottie

00:09:26--> 00:09:28

Why not one of us?

00:09:30--> 00:09:32

We are more deserving.

00:09:33--> 00:09:40

Now we may scoff at such a thought, and we may put in

00:09:42--> 00:09:54

disgust and contempt the How dare they object to Allah and question laws wisdom, as to who he will reveal the Quran to and grant and bestow His revelation to

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

and indeed Allah says immediately thereafter. Oh Simona

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

cryptography, what?

00:10:03--> 00:10:06

Do they distribute the mercy of your law?

00:10:07--> 00:10:21

So it's the sequence. They said that why wasn't the Quran revealed to one of the two great men of the city of the one of the great men of the two cities, or to a great man of one of the two cities? So immediately then Allah so Simona

00:10:24--> 00:10:32

what do they distribute the Mercy of your Lord? Now, we may find that surprising, but this is exactly what we do ourselves.

00:10:33--> 00:10:36

When we are envious of a person,

00:10:38--> 00:10:42

we object to alongs choice

00:10:44--> 00:10:47

in bestowing His favor on that person.

00:10:50--> 00:10:55

And this is why one of the final things I said was a poem where the poet says,

00:10:56--> 00:11:00

at our own lemon village, he has either a three Adam and

00:11:02--> 00:11:08

a scepter. And Allah if you hooked me, either them below the Lima Wahab, either unthemed bottle the Lima Wahab

00:11:09--> 00:11:27

that say to one who has remained envious of me. Do you know who you have been insolent towards? You have been insolent to Allah in His chore in his judgment? For you have not been content with what Allah has granted me.

00:11:29--> 00:11:35

And this is it, just as the Quraysh were seething with rage, glowing green with envy.

00:11:39--> 00:11:44

Prophets Allah Hardy was objecting to Allah giving him the Quran.

00:11:47--> 00:12:00

We do exactly the same with glow green with envy we are besides ourselves with the rage, we see the indignation and we question and we object.

00:12:03--> 00:12:09

Who do we object to? We object to Allah, the Why did Allah give him

00:12:13--> 00:12:13

this thing?

00:12:17--> 00:12:24

There's an arrogance. There's that objection. There's that sense of self entitlement, that he doesn't deserve it.

00:12:28--> 00:12:31

Who are we to judge what Allah gives to someone?

00:12:33--> 00:12:41

Envy is illogical. It doesn't make sense. It's purely emotional. It truly is. It's

00:12:45--> 00:12:49

it's animalistic behavior. It's best to behavior.

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

It's animal behavior.

00:12:58--> 00:13:02

It probably belongs to the reptilian part of our brain.

00:13:04--> 00:13:05

It doesn't make sense.

00:13:06--> 00:13:07

It doesn't.

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

Envy is illogical.

00:13:14--> 00:13:19

And V leads to incoherent Illogical Behavior.

00:13:20--> 00:13:24

Envy has no positive outcome, it truly doesn't.

00:13:25--> 00:13:26

In fact, it said

00:13:28--> 00:13:32

this quote, has been attributed to one of the Sahaba or the loved one

00:13:33--> 00:13:36

that he said that

00:13:37--> 00:13:38


00:13:39--> 00:13:41

can please every individual

00:13:43--> 00:13:47

I can pacify and placate

00:13:48--> 00:13:51

every individual meaning I can make them content

00:13:53--> 00:14:05

except the hassle of except the envious person, because the envious person will only be happy with the removal of that favor and blessing of Allah.

00:14:13--> 00:14:21

So as I said, envy is illogical it leads to Illogical Behavior. And he has no logical outcome he has no positive outcome.

00:14:23--> 00:14:25

It doesn't, neither for the victim

00:14:26--> 00:14:29

nor for the perpetrator of envy.

00:14:32--> 00:14:33

So envy makes no sense.

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

And this is why

00:14:39--> 00:14:44

Allah and his little salts of Allah it was seldom have warned as against

00:14:46--> 00:14:48

envy is destructive.

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

It makes no sense whatsoever.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

And Allahu Allah Allah Arnie was salam have warned us not to be envious.

00:15:06--> 00:15:13

This is the behavior and the characteristic and the trait of a monad filled not to mop.

00:15:14--> 00:15:15

This is why

00:15:19--> 00:15:26

you might miss that you. Allah Healy relates Hadith from a war era huddled the law one in which the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam says,

00:15:28--> 00:15:33

Well, are you interested me around the field but we'll be in an email and we'll acid

00:15:37--> 00:15:43

and two things do not combine in the heart of a servant.

00:15:45--> 00:15:52

Two things do not come together in the heart of a servant an Eman or what hassad Iman and has

00:15:53--> 00:15:55

a mop meaning cannot be a hazard.

00:15:58--> 00:16:11

It doesn't mean that if someone is guilty of envy, they leave the fold of Islam or they cease to be mean No, it's the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam warning is against hazard and encouraging us to be true believers.

00:16:13--> 00:16:20

That we've embraced Islam we regard ourselves as Muslim. But if we want to be truly Mothman

00:16:22--> 00:16:24

true believers,

00:16:25--> 00:16:27

then we have to rid ourselves of hassad

00:16:29--> 00:16:34

because a true Iman cannot reside in the same heart

00:16:35--> 00:16:38

with hesed it cannot

00:16:41--> 00:16:44

and will not fit can be a hassad

00:16:45--> 00:16:47

but men can not be a house.

00:16:48--> 00:16:58

And in fact, when the prophets Allah Allah Hardy was seldom traveled from Mecca to Medina. He wasn't just the victim of envy and McCurtain macabre, he was a victim of envy in and Madina Munawwara

00:17:00--> 00:17:01

Abdullah had no weakness at all,

00:17:02--> 00:17:05

the lead of the hypocrites

00:17:11--> 00:17:18

one of his greatest reasons for opposing the messengers of Allah Almighty was sending them

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

verbally abusing him in his absence.

00:17:25--> 00:17:26

Sometimes even in his presence

00:17:35--> 00:17:35


00:17:37--> 00:17:46

it's once Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went with a group someone told him the Rasul Allah go and preach to Abdullah Hypnobabies Solu.

00:17:47--> 00:17:48

He is one of the leaders of his people

00:17:49--> 00:17:53

to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam went with a group of companions.

00:17:58--> 00:18:13

And when they arrived, he was a lead as he was surrounded by his cronies and by others as well. Not necessarily his cronies, but others who because it was an influential, powerful person, who then is gathering Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:18:16--> 00:18:19

began preaching to speaking to them of Islam.

00:18:21--> 00:18:37

And delighted Norway, even a single said, Oh, Muhammad, did not come to us to preach. You stay where you are. If anybody if anyone wants to come to listen to you, they'll come to you, but do not come to us to preach. And then he also said, move your animal way.

00:18:39--> 00:18:42

For it stench has offended us

00:18:47--> 00:18:57

it's one of the Sahaba of the Lavon who was with the messenger so Allah Allah Hi, Lee has responded by saying by Allah, even the animal of the Messenger of Allah, he's more pure and fragrant than you.

00:19:00--> 00:19:04

So sometimes even in his presence, he would be rude and insolent.

00:19:06--> 00:19:12

Of course, this was at the beginning and the later when he realized that it would be better to throw in his lot with the Muslims, he did so

00:19:13--> 00:19:16

only out of self interest, but

00:19:18--> 00:19:21

he would say all sorts of all sorts of things.

00:19:22--> 00:19:28

And the Sahaba or the Allah Han would tell the prophets of Allah and he was certainly

00:19:30--> 00:19:35

one sort of say to them are they are the alarm said this time, once

00:19:36--> 00:19:42

sad, nobody heard the alarm and said this to him. They both said to him on separate occasions, yeah, to sort of

00:19:43--> 00:19:46

ignore him overlook what he says.

00:19:47--> 00:19:49

And the reason is a messenger of Allah.

00:19:51--> 00:19:54

Before you arrived, the people of Medina

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

the tribes of Medina, were on the verge

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

of crowning him as a king of Medina

00:20:06--> 00:20:14

as a preeminent leader of all the tribes, in fact, one of the other words that they would say that they had already

00:20:15--> 00:20:17

woven a wreath for him.

00:20:20--> 00:20:31

And then when you arrived on Messenger of Allah, he now feels that you have stolen, you have robbed him of his kingship of his mic.

00:20:32--> 00:20:40

So a messenger of Allah ignore what he says. So this was one of the greatest reasons for Abdullah Hypnobabies saloon.

00:20:42--> 00:21:00

Behaving hypocritical and plotting and scheming constantly against the Messenger of Allah and abusing him in his absence especially, and sometimes even in his presence in the earlier days, and often being sarcastic, constantly making sarcastic snide remarks

00:21:03--> 00:21:07

because he was envious of the Messenger of Allah.

00:21:08--> 00:21:15

In fact, he was on the verge of being crowned king. And suddenly

00:21:16--> 00:21:31

he realized that this person has usurped my authority usurped my throne, my crown and overnight, I had been relegated to an inferior position and I am no matter equal for him.

00:21:33--> 00:21:38

So he burns green with envy, see the rage. He was indignant.

00:21:40--> 00:22:01

So the prophets Allah Hardy was faced opposition muckety muck aroma, out of envy. It wasn't the sole reason, but it played a major part played a big role. He was the victim of envy, in a Madina, Munawwara especially at the hands of them on your own and even others.

00:22:02--> 00:22:08

As Allah says, they refuse to believe in you, out of envy, an out of spite.

00:22:12--> 00:22:19

They refuse to believe in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam in Madina, Munawwara Allah explicitly says, out of envy,

00:22:21--> 00:22:40

their envy actually led them to disbelieve, even though some of them knew with conviction that he was a messenger. Can you believe it? The Quran actually testifies to this. But even though they knew that he was the Messenger of Allah, as well as they knew their own children to be their children,

00:22:43--> 00:22:49

they refuse to believe in Him. So if they knew that he was a messenger of Allah,

00:22:50--> 00:23:00

and they were as convinced of his prophethood, as they were as convinced, as they were convinced of their children and of their children being their children,

00:23:01--> 00:23:05

what then prevented them from believing and embracing

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

acid envy

00:23:14--> 00:23:17

just as a person who is envious of another today,

00:23:19--> 00:23:24

if he is called upon to pay homage to him or show him respect, or show him friendship,

00:23:25--> 00:23:32

he will resolutely refuse to do it. And if he is compelled to do so, he will do it hypocritically.

00:23:34--> 00:23:38

There is no sincerity, no wish.

00:23:39--> 00:23:41

This is exactly what they did.

00:23:42--> 00:23:51

They knew he was a messenger of Allah, but out of envy, that Why did Allah make him the Prophet and not one of the one of us?

00:23:53--> 00:24:12

They refuse to believe in Him, even though they knew was the truth. This is how envy is so illogical and leads to Illogical Behavior. In fact, it leads to objecting against Allah, it be objecting to Allah, it leads to questioning last choice and Allah's favor.

00:24:15--> 00:24:17

It leads to

00:24:18--> 00:24:19

even disbelief

00:24:24--> 00:24:26

and that was a messenger of Allah, Allah Allah RT.

00:24:28--> 00:24:29


00:24:30--> 00:24:31


00:24:33--> 00:24:39

is destructive, it's illogical, and we have been warned against it. As I said, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:24:42--> 00:24:56

well are you to me early for your call to be amped in an email and all hesed Iman and hesed two things cannot come together in the heart of the servant. Iman and has faith in envy. I true ima

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

and true at true II

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Man can never

00:25:03--> 00:25:04


00:25:05--> 00:25:11

can never coexist with hesed envy in the heart of a servant

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

and the

00:25:19--> 00:25:23

pursuit of love allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has

00:25:26--> 00:25:33

that has advised us that a true Mothman cannot be a hazard yes and well nerfed can they be a hazard?

00:25:34--> 00:25:46

Anyone who is a true believer a heart cannot be a house that this is why another very beautiful Hadith related by even a manager in his son from Abdullah Mohammed bin have asked what are the love and humor?

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

It said in the Hadith.

00:25:51--> 00:26:04

De Leon rasool Allah, a UNICEF body, it will set a messenger of Allah, who of the people is the best, who of the people is the most virtuous? Who's the best?

00:26:12--> 00:26:14

Everyone wants to be the best.

00:26:20--> 00:26:30

And in this day and age, people still ask the same question Who is the best course it's pronounced and spelled differently? So not who's the best is who the best.

00:26:31--> 00:26:37

And who the best is? Someone with Well, someone with bling someone can show off

00:26:38--> 00:26:45

someone with the lowly, despicable trivial trinkets of the dunya he's the best.

00:26:46--> 00:26:47

That's who we think is the best.

00:26:51--> 00:26:57

So the same question was asked of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam PDR rasool Allah a young man said,

00:26:59--> 00:27:02

you will set a messenger of Allah who is the best of all the

00:27:04--> 00:27:07

prophets Allah Allah Almighty who assumes reply was

00:27:08--> 00:27:11

good a llama Moo. Saluting

00:27:13--> 00:27:19

every brushed of heart, every polished of heart

00:27:22--> 00:27:24

every individual honest of tongue

00:27:26--> 00:27:36

he's the best. Someone who is honest of tongue and someone who is much more bold meaning polished and brushed of heart.

00:27:38--> 00:27:49

So the Sahaba said Ya rasool Allah so the only Sam we work with an honest tongue we know who that is either description, but who exactly is my mom?

00:27:51--> 00:27:52

Because Moon

00:27:54--> 00:28:00

what why did they ask that they were Arabs of course they understood but mom wouldn't normally be used with oil.

00:28:01--> 00:28:08

Because the meaning of Mark Moon is brushed, it doesn't even actually mean polished. It means brushed.

00:28:11--> 00:28:14

vacuumed. So, when you brush the

00:28:16--> 00:28:19

when you brush the carpets when you brush the floor.

00:28:21--> 00:28:50

That floor is then known as a dumb meaning a brushed surface. So the prophets of Allah Allah He was sort of used that word moon with heart. So said Gula Memorial, every brushed of heart. So the Sahaba wanted clarification this to the middle school Allah we understand So do people listen? Every person honest of tongue, but who is Mom will

00:28:51--> 00:28:53

the one brushed of heart with a brushed heart?

00:28:56--> 00:29:14

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the man who is who who took the Unity law if MFI well above the law has said he said the Hmong, the one brushed of heart is a tea.

00:29:15--> 00:29:34

The one who is weary and fearing of Allah, n be the pure law if Murphy there is no sin in him, well above here, and there is no transgression in him while Hiller and there is no rank or malice in him wala hassad and there is no envy.

00:29:36--> 00:29:47

He is the best of all people. Someone who is honest of tongue and brushed and polished of heart, and to be polished of heart, you have to be free.

00:29:49--> 00:29:49


00:29:51--> 00:29:59

first of all you have your heart has to be filled with Bagua. You have to be pure, and your heart has to be free of sin.

00:30:01--> 00:30:06

of transgression, of malice, and of hesed of envy.

00:30:07--> 00:30:09

Such a person is a best of all.

00:30:12--> 00:30:22

And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith read the Bible howdy Muslim, from Anissa mnemonic or the Allah one minute competitor, you should believe each

00:30:24--> 00:30:29

one of you cannot believe, or you only one of you is not a true believer

00:30:30--> 00:30:34

until he loves for his brother that which he lives for himself.

00:30:35--> 00:30:58

That's how clean hearted and Muslim is. That's how pure hearted and Wattman is that rather than want to take what another has, rather than coveting what someone else has, rather than wishing, and praying for someone to be deprived of a favor that Allah has bestowed upon them.

00:31:01--> 00:31:14

And what men actually looks at one's own possessions, one one's own belongings, one's own leisure and pleasure, one's own privileges. one's own fortune,

00:31:15--> 00:31:22

and with sincerity, passionately believes in praise, but I wish my brother could have this.

00:31:23--> 00:31:31

And by brother the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wasn't even referring to one sibling or blood, Brother, brother in faith.

00:31:36--> 00:31:38

If I have good fortune,

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

how will it harm me?

00:31:42--> 00:31:43

If my

00:31:45--> 00:31:48

brother in faith if my fellow has the same

00:31:49--> 00:31:51

How does it detract from me?

00:31:53--> 00:31:58

Like I said, has said belongs to the reptilian part of our brain, it's illogical.

00:31:59--> 00:32:05

We are selfish we want everything for ourselves. One man cannot drink the water of the entire ocean.

00:32:07--> 00:32:08

You cannot

00:32:11--> 00:32:14

our energy our lives are finite.

00:32:15--> 00:32:17

How much how are we going to hold?

00:32:19--> 00:32:21

How much are we going to accumulate?

00:32:25--> 00:32:27

As a profit Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:32:29--> 00:32:31

that regarding Southern

00:32:33--> 00:32:34

and this is a general meaning of the Hadith

00:32:37--> 00:32:42

described to beatifully that a person will come to the end of one's life

00:32:43--> 00:32:44


00:32:45--> 00:32:58

withhold charity, be miserly, be stingy, tight fisted and not give. And then suddenly at the end of one's life, the person suddenly begins distributing his or her wealth and says,

00:33:00--> 00:33:07

This is for Funan. This is for falam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dramatically.

00:33:09--> 00:33:15

Well, he the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ends a hadith with the most dramatic and decisive

00:33:16--> 00:33:31

and overwhelming words and what are they that the person says, this is for format, and this is for format. This is for such and such a person this is for such and such person, what has gone any further, when it has already become fulfilled?

00:33:33--> 00:33:34

He's about to die.

00:33:37--> 00:33:42

He could not spend any of his he could not use any of it. What could he do with it?

00:33:45--> 00:33:53

And now he begins to distribute wealth and says this belongs to that person. This belongs to that person. When it was already that person's he was just looking after it.

00:33:54--> 00:33:56

He was losing his sleep over it.

00:33:57--> 00:33:59

He was merely golden for others

00:34:03--> 00:34:07

and that is the reality of wealth will lie. That's what we are envious of.

00:34:12--> 00:34:15

A person works hard breaks his back all his life

00:34:20--> 00:34:26

and this is a common perception in our culture. person worked hard all his life, when in fact it could be true

00:34:30--> 00:34:31

gather as much money

00:34:32--> 00:34:36

he himself is now too ill too weak to enjoy

00:34:45--> 00:34:48

he has a son, or adult gets the merit.

00:34:51--> 00:34:52


00:34:54--> 00:34:59

in the prime of their youth, they now begin to enjoy as well.

00:35:06--> 00:35:07

there's a dispute.

00:35:09--> 00:35:11

They end up divorcing

00:35:14--> 00:35:15

the son

00:35:16--> 00:35:20

never earned any of that wealth. It was as follows.

00:35:24--> 00:35:26

The wife, who's now divorced,

00:35:29--> 00:35:34

didn't earn any of that wealth. It wasn't even her husband's. It was a fathering.

00:35:36--> 00:35:59

And now, neither the father, the earner, and the owner of this wealth, nor his son are enjoying any of it. A stranger who came into their life and became a stranger again through divorce, is now enjoying that wealth. And lo and behold, she goes and marries and someone else, and that person is now enjoying that wealth.

00:36:00--> 00:36:01

That's the reality,

00:36:03--> 00:36:03

of wealth.

00:36:05--> 00:36:07

This is what we are envious of.

00:36:08--> 00:36:09


00:36:11--> 00:36:12

a true Mortman

00:36:13--> 00:36:17

desire, desires for others what he or she desires for himself or herself.

00:36:19--> 00:36:23

That's a true moment, because it doesn't hurt them. It doesn't harm.

00:36:31--> 00:36:34

Others I ended the last session with the words that

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


00:36:39--> 00:36:52

is such a thing that destroys a person's peace, it robs them of peace robs them of tranquility and serenity. So even from a worldly perspective, it doesn't make sense to be envious. It doesn't.

00:36:54--> 00:37:29

And this is why In another Hadith, related by the monitoring authority Bahadur de la hora, and recorded by him on top Iranian is a margin in my original copy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, lie Assad on NASA Hayden, man, I'm here to house, people will be in a good state. People will be good, not good in that they will be good themselves, but they will be in good fortune. People will remain in good fortune, and in a good state, as long as they are not envious of each other.

00:37:31--> 00:37:41

So it's not just individual peace. It's social peace, social tranquility, common. Peace. People will be happy.

00:37:44--> 00:37:46

Wealth won't make you happy.

00:37:49--> 00:37:52

There's always a counter argument for everything. So

00:37:53--> 00:37:57

people normally say wealth calm by counter arguments like

00:38:02--> 00:38:03

if you tell someone

00:38:08--> 00:38:10

what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

00:38:13--> 00:38:15

Well, the retort to that is

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

what doesn't kill you cripples you.

00:38:20--> 00:38:22

Does it make you stronger? it cripples you?

00:38:27--> 00:38:42

And if someone says, Well, it's the early bird that catches when someone tells you Look, why don't you go ahead, you go forth. You'd be the first. Remember, it's the early bird that catches the worm. And you could always argue, you know, why should I go? It's the second match that gets the cheese.

00:38:44--> 00:38:48

So there's always a counter arguments when we say that.

00:38:50--> 00:38:52

Wealth cannot buy happiness.

00:38:54--> 00:39:01

Well, the counter argument to that is, yes, well, wealth may not buy you happiness, but at least you can be miserable in comfort.

00:39:04--> 00:39:07

At least you can be miserable in comfort.

00:39:08--> 00:39:09


00:39:10--> 00:39:19

but the truth is, even those who say well, at least you'd be miserable in comfort, even they can see that. Within you'll still be miserable.

00:39:22--> 00:39:28

If someone wants true tranquility and serenity, wants to be at peace within

00:39:29--> 00:39:34

what Allah He read yourself, let's rid ourselves of envy.

00:39:36--> 00:39:39

We will be at peace truly.

00:39:40--> 00:39:41

We will be at peace.

00:39:45--> 00:39:54

When we see some good in others, all we can say is Masha Allah Hola, hola. Quwata illa biLlah whatever Allah wished

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

there is no power

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

And there is no strength except with Allah.

00:40:05--> 00:40:08

It's his choice. He's given us a

00:40:15--> 00:40:29

suit allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has warned us against envy because it's so strict. It's not just harmful to others but before others is harmful to oneself. It truly is.

00:40:30--> 00:40:57

And this is one one famous Hadith where to hardier Muslim the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, El Gamal hassad sorry, Yak Madonna, Madonna COVID Hadith what are the has this will add to justice will add an addition what are the house will add about well out of the womb What about Allah here one prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said beware of suspicion, conjecture speculation

00:40:58--> 00:41:03

or indeed speculation conjecture is the greatest lie

00:41:06--> 00:41:11

without the hassle and do not use drop what Arthur just says

00:41:13--> 00:41:14

I'm done not spy

00:41:21--> 00:41:22

while at an audition

00:41:25--> 00:41:27

and do not

00:41:31--> 00:41:32

undercut undercuts one another

00:41:39--> 00:41:42

niche originally means to start

00:41:48--> 00:41:48


00:41:52--> 00:42:00

when you startle someone, they used to use it in hunting. So what happens in hunting, you have

00:42:01--> 00:42:02

the quarry the prey,

00:42:04--> 00:42:05

you have a pack of hunters

00:42:06--> 00:42:08

and they then

00:42:09--> 00:42:10

get someone as a decoy.

00:42:13--> 00:42:14

That decoy

00:42:17--> 00:42:21

tries to attract the attention of the prey.

00:42:23--> 00:42:26

And when the prey sees the decoys,

00:42:27--> 00:42:40

what the prey does is that it gets startled. So when he gets startled and frightened, it bolts from its hiding place. When it bolts from his hiding place trying to flee from this decoy.

00:42:42--> 00:42:49

The pack of hunters it goes straight towards a pack of hunters. So what the decoy does is set he sets a trap.

00:42:50--> 00:42:57

So this is the original meaning of nudge to set a trap by startling the quality of the prey.

00:42:59--> 00:43:04

It then came to be used to entrap

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


00:43:09--> 00:43:12

And so the meaning here of what an audition

00:43:13--> 00:43:18

is do not I translated it as undercut because it specifically refers to

00:43:22--> 00:43:23

false bidding

00:43:25--> 00:43:26

as people do on eBay,

00:43:28--> 00:43:30

this is exactly what then are just reversed.

00:43:32--> 00:43:32


00:43:34--> 00:43:47

a person sells something and then they create other accounts. And then using the other accounts, they bid against themselves, falsely raising the price. So they are entrapping

00:43:49--> 00:43:50

potential buyers.

00:43:53--> 00:43:57

If they don't get the price they want they just withdrawal

00:43:58--> 00:44:07

and if they do get the price they want then the person has unfortunately paid a hugely inflated price

00:44:10--> 00:44:11

and they've been trapped.

00:44:16--> 00:44:18

So this is the meaning of well at an audition

00:44:21--> 00:44:24

do not undercut and the meaning of undercut is so if you have two people,

00:44:25--> 00:44:29

you've got a seller and you've got a buyer and you've got a third person

00:44:31--> 00:44:34

then Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:44:35--> 00:44:36

do not

00:44:38--> 00:44:39

undercut the other

00:44:40--> 00:44:42

if you have no intention of buying withdraw.

00:44:47--> 00:44:59

So well at an audition do not interact one another this is specifically in relation to out falsely outbidding each other and the purpose is to harm one another. So do not

00:45:00--> 00:45:00

do that

00:45:03--> 00:45:05

without the hassle and do not be envious of each

00:45:07--> 00:45:07


00:45:09--> 00:45:22

and do not hate each other while at the double, and do not turn your backs to each other, we'll call you above the line and be the servants of Allah as brothers. None of these behaviors aren't good.

00:45:23--> 00:45:31

And what men is not guilty of any of these behaviors. And the one word that concerns is is what are the hat so do Do not be envious of each other.

00:45:33--> 00:45:34

Do not be envious.

00:45:37--> 00:45:46

Now why has Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam warned us so strenuously against hassad, as I said,

00:45:47--> 00:46:07

has said, is destructive. It's dangerous, it's illogical. It leads to Illogical Behavior. It leads to negative illogical outcomes. There's nothing positive about it. And even from a non religious perspective, it makes no sense to be envious. Envy doesn't achieve anything.

00:46:10--> 00:46:17

It eats away at one soul, it gnaws at one's heart. It robs one of

00:46:19--> 00:46:23

the individuals tranquility and serenity and peace of mind. It truly does.

00:46:24--> 00:46:26

And it burns them from within this is why

00:46:28--> 00:46:36

I've called them V then the title of the talk the inferno within because envy is fine. It's fine.

00:46:37--> 00:46:39

In the Hadith, which are related before,

00:46:42--> 00:46:47

of a Buddha called in his son Ananda this pursuit allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:46:49--> 00:46:55

Yahuwah hustle for in the house of the good ol Hassan Ah, come on, Coronado, have them Okada.

00:46:56--> 00:47:10

Beware of envy for envy, consumes and devours good deeds, just like fire devours wood or dry grass. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has likened hazard to fire.

00:47:12--> 00:47:25

The prophets of Allah has likened the hazard to fire. And poets have likened hazard to fire. Because that's what it does. Before he burns the other he actually burns one cell. It does.

00:47:27--> 00:47:33

That's why one poet says the law had the rule has the MA but the Sahibi he forgot

00:47:35--> 00:47:38

to Allah belongs the marvel of envy.

00:47:40--> 00:47:43

To Allah belongs the Marvel have envy.

00:47:44--> 00:47:47

Now that poets not saying that envy is marvelous,

00:47:48--> 00:47:57

what poets saying is, envy is so strange. It's such a it's such an strange one.

00:48:00--> 00:48:08

The luchador has earned Allah to Allah belongs the wonder of envy. How just it is.

00:48:10--> 00:48:18

How just as envy, but a bizarre Hibiki for Katana. Envy begins with the envy and kills him.

00:48:21--> 00:48:23

That's what it is. It kills us before it hurts the other.

00:48:26--> 00:48:37

We may see when we look at someone, at least for now they aren't enjoying their possession. They aren't enjoying their welfare or enjoying their good fortune. What do we eat?

00:48:40--> 00:48:49

We burn with envy, we glow green then we received with rage. We are indignant. Besides ourselves, we can't sleep we can't eat.

00:48:51--> 00:48:57

In peace we can't we actually consumed by what the other person has.

00:48:58--> 00:49:03

We don't care whether we get it or not. What we want is that he or she shouldn't have.

00:49:06--> 00:49:12

And that's illogical. It doesn't make sense. It really doesn't. Why are we tormenting and torturing ourselves?

00:49:14--> 00:49:16

Wouldn't it be better to be at peace until

00:49:20--> 00:49:21

Allah has given it to

00:49:22--> 00:49:28

him that I am content with the Division of Allah, I am content with the distribution of Allah.

00:49:30--> 00:49:56

I'm content with the words of Allah in the Quran. Well in Al Fatah, ba de la de Jiminy Usha, Allah wa Sallim the Samira Mata he Mejia SHA, Allah has been furthering our theme of Allah says to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, all grace or bounty is in the hands of law. He grants it to whomever he wishes, and Allah His most bountiful most knowing.

00:49:59--> 00:49:59


00:50:00--> 00:50:03

IE, you're the CIO barometer he Manisha

00:50:04--> 00:50:08

he makes exclusive whoever he wishes with his mercy.

00:50:10--> 00:50:11

And Allah is one of immense power

00:50:13--> 00:50:18

for loans to give someone who am I to object? Who am I to?

00:50:21--> 00:50:26

Envy is illogical. It truly is what when we are envious we don't think straight.

00:50:27--> 00:50:35

We don't see straight. We don't talk straight. We don't we make fools of ourselves others can see a we can't.

00:50:38--> 00:50:40

This is why Mambo Hanifa Rahim Allah

00:50:42--> 00:50:47

whenever anybody in his gathering would speak ill of someone out of envy.

00:50:49--> 00:50:53

You would not tolerate any libre, any backbiting you would banish them.

00:50:54--> 00:50:57

You would actually say to them leave.

00:50:58--> 00:51:01

He would banish back biters from his garden.

00:51:02--> 00:51:10

We're not talking about large gatherings even a small private gathering, where if he was seated and any individual began the Rebbe

00:51:11--> 00:51:12

backbiting another person

00:51:14--> 00:51:15


00:51:16--> 00:51:20

why backbones? Often it is the result of envy.

00:51:22--> 00:51:25

So Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah would banish them from his gathering.

00:51:29--> 00:51:31

And before that he would recite a poem.

00:51:33--> 00:51:41

Ma'am Hanifa will read a poem has this one thing logic has said is illogical.

00:51:44--> 00:52:05

We don't see straight because of envy. We don't talk straight because of envy, others can actually see through us. And we make fools of ourselves, spectacle of ourselves. And we don't realize how irrationally we are behaving. So Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah he will actually recite this poem, if anyone spoke ill of another in his in in front of it.

00:52:07--> 00:52:11

And he would say Hassard unfetter iluminado Satria.

00:52:14--> 00:52:23

For Kulu LA who will assume that the raw Yrel hasna is ordinary, which he has said and we're both than in the hula the mean

00:52:24--> 00:52:43

that they were envious of the young man, because they could not keep up with his pace. They were envious of the young man, because they could not keep up with his face with his pace. So now everyone is his enemy, and his adversary.

00:52:44--> 00:52:47

Like the rivals of the fair made

00:52:49--> 00:52:52

like the rivals of a beautiful Maeve.

00:52:54--> 00:52:56

Who say of her face,

00:52:59--> 00:53:04

out of envy and in spite and hatred, it is ugly.

00:53:06--> 00:53:11

So the world can see there here is a fair maid who is strikingly beautiful,

00:53:12--> 00:53:14

but her rivals.

00:53:15--> 00:53:33

Their envy causes them to behave and to talk and to speak. irrationally, rationally, illogically. The world can see she is so fair and beautiful. And in their disgust and anger and spite and envy, they turn around and say she's so ugly.

00:53:35--> 00:53:36

That's what envy does.

00:53:38--> 00:53:40

It makes a person behave irrationally.

00:53:42--> 00:53:43

Because there's a fire burning within.

00:53:46--> 00:53:52

Prophets, Allah Almighty husana has likened envy to fire. Poets have likened envy to fire.

00:53:54--> 00:54:00

One poet says, is to be the other Hustle Hustle. For in the sobriquet God

00:54:02--> 00:54:11

is spirit. Other Hustle Hustle the for inner Sabra culatello for narrow Takalua digit math that could

00:54:12--> 00:54:15

be patient over the envy of the envious one.

00:54:16--> 00:54:19

For your patience will kill him.

00:54:20--> 00:54:26

For fire, consumes itself when it cannot find anything else to

00:54:28--> 00:54:32

be patient, over the envy

00:54:33--> 00:54:36

of the envious one, for your patience will kill him.

00:54:38--> 00:54:45

For fire consumes itself when it come when it can not find anything else to burn and devour. And that's why

00:54:46--> 00:54:50

envy is fire with him. It truly is.

00:54:51--> 00:54:56

It's way it's personally burns him it consumes him. It destroys him from within.

00:54:58--> 00:55:00

And it doesn't make sense. It's fine.

00:55:00--> 00:55:10

are better for the person say 100 Allah, Masha, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah with the love Allah and to be at peace. It doesn't take much.

00:55:11--> 00:55:12

Now you will not

00:55:13--> 00:55:36

believe he he may have been enough said that he thought and I saw the Allah one, that one of you cannot be a true believer until he desires for his fellow brother that which he desires for himself. That's all you have to do pray for the other person, complement the other person. In fact, if you pray for the other person, the angels say amen to your DUA and they actually say well look a mythical and me you have it's like to

00:55:38--> 00:55:40

me you have it like to

00:55:48--> 00:55:53

instead of compete for good. All we tried to do is bring each other down, out of envy,

00:55:54--> 00:55:55


00:55:57--> 00:56:13

As I said, marriages have been destroyed, families have been wrecked relationships and friendships have been destroyed. In fact, envy destroys friendships, how? Not by other people. So it's not about other people coming in between them whispering in one Z against the other.

00:56:15--> 00:56:17

Two friends are close to each other.

00:56:20--> 00:56:21

Just like the brothers of use valleys.

00:56:24--> 00:56:25

One of them is privileged. Listen.

00:56:27--> 00:56:28

How can we all be equal?

00:56:30--> 00:56:31

We can't all be equal.

00:56:33--> 00:56:36

Our DNA is different. Our fingerprints are different.

00:56:38--> 00:56:51

Our biological constitution is different. Our thoughts are different. Every one of us is unique, truly unique. No two faces are alike. Even identical twins are different.

00:56:53--> 00:57:01

How can we be the same? We can't last beauty and wonder in his creation is in its diversity.

00:57:02--> 00:57:07

I mean, if the Hulk was somewhere where they went out of the walk, they laugh Well, Senator Baldwin,

00:57:08--> 00:57:17

amongst the signs, is a creation of the heavens and the earth, and the differing of your colors, complexions and your tongues,

00:57:19--> 00:57:32

our different complexions, our different languages, are all part of the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the wonder of His creation, our diversity is a wonder of His creation.

00:57:33--> 00:57:45

So we all different we can never be alike. So you have two friends, how can they be the same in everything they can, one will be wealthier than the other one will be poorer than the other one will have less than the other one will be more privileged than the other.

00:57:48--> 00:57:52

Like that we read sudo sudo calf every Friday, we should.

00:57:55--> 00:57:58

Law says what the biblical mythology

00:57:59--> 00:58:09

and strike for them the parable of the two men who was one of them, one of them was poor, the other we had given him gardens and estates and lands,

00:58:10--> 00:58:13

with rivers flowing in in these lands

00:58:14--> 00:58:15

and orchards.

00:58:16--> 00:58:21

So he took his Porth friend, companion on a tour of his estate.

00:58:23--> 00:58:24

And he was boastful.

00:58:29--> 00:58:34

And Subhan Allah the poor one was a pious believer, what did he say to him?

00:58:35--> 00:58:53

He said to him, Oh, my companion wouldn't have been better for you. Instead of boasting like this, you would have said Masha Allah with our whole or without God, they love Allah. That this is whatever Allah has wished. And there is no strength or power except with law.

00:58:56--> 00:59:40

That's what we should say about any good fortune that Allah has bestowed on us. That's what we should say, regarding any good fortune that Allah has bestowed upon anyone else be happy for each other, I was saying about friends. So it's inevitable that these two friends cannot be alike and everything will be more privileged than the other in some things. But if one of these friends or if both of them look at each other, with a covetous, envious at each other's privileges, positions and possessions, then their friendship will sour shape on will come in between and whisper in their hearts and in their minds. And what will happen is Iblees, just as he came in between the brothers

00:59:40--> 00:59:58

of use of alayhis salaam will come in between friends. Even the best of friends fall out because of envy. Families are destroyed marriages are destroyed friendships and relationships destroy because of envy. There is no positive outcome for None whatsoever.

00:59:59--> 01:00:00

It's a

01:00:00--> 01:00:04

fire that burns within consumes a person before it consumes others

01:00:07--> 01:00:11

while speaking about fire and poets poets have likened

01:00:14--> 01:00:18

envy with fire. And there's that very beautiful poem

01:00:19--> 01:00:22

in that era rather low initial affiliate in the weird

01:00:23--> 01:00:25

attire Hello Holly Santa has already

01:00:27--> 01:00:33

01:00:35--> 01:00:41

flow lush the URL nadie FEMA jar word mark on your other four people I will fill Rudy

01:00:44--> 01:00:45

how it says

01:00:46--> 01:00:48

when Allah wishes to reveal

01:00:50--> 01:00:51

the virtue

01:00:52--> 01:00:59

of someone when Allah wishes to reveal a virtue. Allah grants that virtually the tongue of an envious person

01:01:03--> 01:01:09

when Allah wishes to reveal a virtue in someone Allah grants that virtue the tongue of an envious person.

01:01:11--> 01:01:14

For if it wasn't for the burning

01:01:17--> 01:01:19

of the fire in the vicinity.

01:01:20--> 01:01:24

The beauty of the fragrance of Ruud would have never been

01:01:26--> 01:01:32

and to understand this poem, we need to understand rude rude is famous now.

01:01:36--> 01:01:38

Virtually all fragrances

01:01:39--> 01:01:43

have their source in nature, animals, plants,

01:01:44--> 01:01:47

herbs, spices, grass,

01:01:48--> 01:01:49

even tobacco.

01:01:50--> 01:02:02

So they have their source in nature. herbs, spices, grass, flowers. It's not always just flowers, it's actually herbs and spices, and grass, even leather.

01:02:03--> 01:02:04


01:02:05--> 01:02:09

they have their source in animals Musk comes from deer.

01:02:10--> 01:02:13

Amber, Amber comes from the whale.

01:02:15--> 01:02:21

Very precious. Few years ago, I read here in the UK, someone discovered

01:02:23--> 01:02:25

a rock like substance

01:02:27--> 01:02:29

on the shore on the beach is only about this big.

01:02:31--> 01:02:34

And it came to be valued at 100,000 pounds.

01:02:35--> 01:02:37

What was that that was unbearable?

01:02:38--> 01:02:52

It's what whales regurgitate and it floats on the surface of the ocean, and it washes up on the shoulders. So that's unbeli comes from the innards of a whale, just like musk comes from the innards of a deer.

01:02:53--> 01:03:01

So rude is probably the most famous and the most precious and most valuable

01:03:03--> 01:03:05

source of freight.

01:03:06--> 01:03:07


01:03:08--> 01:03:21

it's remarkable, we call it rude. The oil that we get is simply known as Donald erode, meaning the oil extracted from a rule that is very expensive normal PIR before now

01:03:23--> 01:03:29

in the early years, people would be very contemptuous of Eastern fragrances.

01:03:33--> 01:03:39

They would, but it's it's an acquired taste. It really is. One has to be a true connoisseur.

01:03:41--> 01:03:49

It takes an artist to appreciate art. I remember once in our class, we were a class of 27 When I was studying in

01:03:52--> 01:04:10

drama days of study I was I was the youngest in my class. And there was a class of 27 one of the individuals in our this was in the final year of Hadith. So we were studying Sonam did a movie with our late teacher and she

01:04:11--> 01:04:14

has it more than I use and what Allah Rahim Allah, and

01:04:18--> 01:04:22

he was obviously he was a connoisseur of fragrances.

01:04:23--> 01:04:28

And one day he brought in some ruled dogma Laurel meaning oil over and

01:04:30--> 01:04:34

she was smelling it and saying, Hi, Marcia.

01:04:35--> 01:04:37

And he wants to show it to others.

01:04:39--> 01:04:57

So there was one individual in our class who was very old who was married with children. He was one of the late comers so he wasn't one of those individuals who had grown up in the middle. He was a mature student, very advanced and yours much much older than the rest of the class. And

01:04:58--> 01:04:59

I was only 18

01:05:01--> 01:05:02


01:05:03--> 01:05:06

I was a youngest. And he,

01:05:07--> 01:05:15

he was very outspoken, because he never grew up as a student in the modern environment, he only came as a late mature student.

01:05:16--> 01:05:17


01:05:21--> 01:05:39

as I want to use a slab, our teacher, he gave us this fragrance it while he was smelling it, and then he called one of the students and he said, Go and apply this to all of the students before the study of Hadith. So he started from the right, and he gave everyone a bit

01:05:40--> 01:05:45

and everyone who received a bit of the rude we were told to smell it. Well of course.

01:05:47--> 01:06:04

He asked us our teacher that how do you find it? Because he was so fond of it. Obviously, he wanted us to appreciate it the way he appreciated it. So the truth is, students being students out of respect

01:06:05--> 01:06:11

of course some of them liked it and we also appreciate and as well as heated but other we all just said GD mashallah

01:06:13--> 01:06:14

mashallah Masha Allah.

01:06:17--> 01:06:21

And then he went around the whole class until he came to that mature students.

01:06:23--> 01:06:24

So when he applied it to him

01:06:26--> 01:06:33

our teacher asked him he called out his name and said by cold that's his name when he said, Guess it.

01:06:34--> 01:06:38

How did you find it? So that Mature Student It did this

01:06:42--> 01:06:44

year to Bilko muda to heck it?

01:06:46--> 01:06:50

Is it is it this is just like a dead rat.

01:06:52--> 01:06:54

So as I said earlier, you go via

01:06:56--> 01:06:58

what happened there. So

01:07:00--> 01:07:06

in the olden days, people were contemptuous of Eastern fragrances. And they found them cheap.

01:07:07--> 01:07:28

But the truth is now that Western perfumers and Western houses of perfume have actually discovered some of these eastern fragrances. They are now the most sought after the most expensive and precious commodity, Amber, sundal, sandalwood, and rude. And musk in

01:07:29--> 01:07:51

many of these fragrances, so normal fragrances that would cost the 30 pounds, 40 pounds, anything with all of them normally bumped up to 200 pounds. And that's a minut amount of synthetic ruled as another thing. Most rule that we find is synthetic, it's not original.

01:07:53--> 01:08:05

It's not it's actually synthetic. Because and still it's a chemical, it's synthetic and yet the price is her horrendous quite extortionate in many cases,

01:08:06--> 01:08:14

and the reason is that the natural source of a rude is rude just means a stick.

01:08:16--> 01:08:19

And the arrows would call it a little dull Hindi originally

01:08:20--> 01:08:24

Indian word road means wood, Indian wood

01:08:27--> 01:08:37

and then became shortened to root. So, root Indian wood How would it burn and how is it first discovered, so, the root the root is actually

01:08:38--> 01:08:43

wood and bark from particular tree which is infected.

01:08:44--> 01:08:57

So an old tree Why is my most roots synthetic, because the tree from which root is derived is a tree which grows naturally and then it becomes infected.

01:08:58--> 01:09:12

And that infection takes a very long time to grow and to develop and to take hold. So a true mature tree, which gives proper root can often be 100 years old.

01:09:14--> 01:09:28

And the infection is what gives the fragrance so this infected wood in the tree. If if it's burned, then only when it's burned, does he actually give out that free. It's

01:09:29--> 01:09:31

as a result of the infection in the wood.

01:09:32--> 01:09:58

So this is why it's so precious. And the fragrance is truly beautiful. But it has to be appreciated. Takes an artist to appreciate art. So this is the origin of root. So the poet says if it wasn't for the inflammation and the burning of fire in the vicinity of the tree. The beauty of the fragrance of Ruud would have never been known

01:10:00--> 01:10:36

If not allow the love and passion for Lila in two weeks after her Harley Santa has sold the fellowship the fellow left the island now if he magia what Magana euro 40 But other Phil Rudy, when Allah wishes to reveal a virtue Allah gives it the tongue of an envious person. But if it wasn't for the burning of the fire in the vicinity, the beauty of the fragrance of Ruud would have never been realized. So envy is a fire, it burns a person from within be actually reveals a fragrance and the beauty of virtue and another person

01:10:37--> 01:10:40

that's envy makes no sense whatsoever.

01:10:43--> 01:10:51

Truly envy is destructive. And Allah and is it a source of the law or legal system have warned us against it.

01:10:54--> 01:11:03

And they have both told us to be the opposite of an envious person which is a clean hearted pure heart and soul

01:11:05--> 01:11:15

that has many virtues we have been encouraged to do so. And we should strive to remove envy from our hearts. And it can be done.

01:11:16--> 01:11:20

It can be done. It's not easy, but it can be done

01:11:21--> 01:11:43

through awareness, realization, education, personal discipline, and personal training. No one else can do it for us, he can only show us and guide us, we have to do it ourselves. And there are ways of doing it. First of all, by management, recognition

01:11:44--> 01:11:45

and then

01:11:47--> 01:11:58

developing certain habits which remove this being aware of the danger of envy which we have and also the virtue of being non being

01:12:00--> 01:12:01

non envious.

01:12:03--> 01:12:08

And regarding that the some of the methods, some of the other virtues

01:12:09--> 01:12:13

in sha Allah I'll elaborate on that next week.

01:12:14--> 01:12:24

Or so Allah Salam o Allah Abdi he will assume the heavy and while early he will send me a dream hammock along with him digital Allah Allah He learns the critical
