We continue with the commentary of athletes number 303,364. From Hebrew Holly

00:02:18--> 00:02:36

more than the other from so even the debate with Abdullah numbers are the logical asset. That's the chain of narration at the beginning of the heady and we began the study few weeks ago, and the parts where we reached last week was where

00:02:39--> 00:02:47

the youth informs us about the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam visiting his son Ismail Lee has said

00:02:49--> 00:02:57

after his wife harddrive Ile de la Huang had passed away and he had gone to visit his mom evenly

00:02:59--> 00:03:02

in order to inquire about his children about

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

battered child, his family and what he had left behind.

00:03:09--> 00:03:16

A quick summary so far. This is about the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam and his family.

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

The youth begins with

00:03:21--> 00:03:25

the journey of Ibrahim alayhis salaam with his wife Hajj or the Allah

00:03:27--> 00:03:32

and the infant child is my readerly his Salaam, from the

00:03:34--> 00:03:48

place of residence for the family to my paternal karma, which at that time was unknown. It was just a barren van, void of vegetation void of water, void of any inhabitation

00:03:49--> 00:04:14

Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam deposited the mother and child is my email am hajer la Muslim massamba with a bag of dates and a sheepskin well a leather skin of water. And then he returned at the edge of the valley he turned around and facing in the direction of the about to be built gather. He prayed to Allah subhanho wa Adana

00:04:17--> 00:04:27

pleading with the law to with certain prayers which I've gone into in detail before. Robin Irenaeus come to me via TeamViewer. These are in the beta

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

of banana

00:04:31--> 00:04:35

feet at the minute nurse that we eat him, What does document a thermal article and

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

our Lord

00:04:38--> 00:04:45

verily, I have settled members of my family in a valley

00:04:47--> 00:04:55

without any vegetation, close to your sacred house. Oh our Lord, so that they may establish solid

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

therefore cause the hearts of the people

00:05:01--> 00:05:04

To flutter towards in love

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

and sustain them, provide for them

00:05:09--> 00:05:13

of fruits. Perhaps they may be grateful.

00:05:16--> 00:06:05

There were further prayers as well and then he ran him at his son and returned to Ghana and the ancient land of Palestine. There, he remained with his other family, and behind him on a harddrive of the alarm Reinhardt along with the sun, they survived for as long as they could on the single bag of dates and simple skin of water. When the water expired, since the mother was sucking the child, she depended on the water for the Milken, the date or when the watering dates had expired. She in her desperation began frantically searching for water, which led her to climb the two helix of suffer, and middleware and caused her to run in between. When she completed the cycle seven times.

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

She heard a sound that was the angel, who then gave her glad tidings and then

00:06:13--> 00:06:21

called cause the well of Zamzam spring for for her that running to and from the climbing of the two Hilux have suffered

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

a loss Pamela Dara

00:06:26--> 00:06:34

inaugurated it and consecrated it as a permanent right to be performed by all pilgrims to the army.

00:06:35--> 00:06:41

And that is the origin of the second setting between Safa and Marwa as part of legendary

00:06:44--> 00:06:47

gush forth, and then after that

00:06:50--> 00:06:56

the mother and child continued to survive just on the water sometime before

00:06:57--> 00:07:28

some members of the Yemeni tribe of Jerome passed by they sought permission to settle near her they were given permission on the condition that they would have no right to water. Eventually, a large settlement develops in and around the valley. When it's my elderly Islam grew up, he learns Arabic from them, and when he grew up, he married into them and married a woman from the tribe of gentlemen.

00:07:29--> 00:07:33

It was and then after a long time, the mother actually passed away.

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

on a hard drive or the alarm on her she passed away at a very advanced stage according some narrations. She was 90 years old when she passed away.

00:07:44--> 00:07:49

Then Ibrahim alayhis salam came to visits his son, the prophet is smart.

00:07:51--> 00:07:58

And this is where we left off last week. I'll just quickly repeat that last part again because

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

it's relevant to the new part that we are going to read so I'll have to join the two together.

00:08:07--> 00:08:09

For Jaya Ibrahim

00:08:10--> 00:08:17

back the matzo which is smart either your party or terracotta. So Ibrahim alayhis salam came

00:08:18--> 00:08:21

after a smart Elan, as Sam had married,

00:08:23--> 00:08:27

seeking out and inquiring over his

00:08:30--> 00:08:31

legacy

00:08:32--> 00:08:57

for his married so he didn't find it smart for Santa Monica Hwang. So he asked his wife about him for pilots. So she said, Hello, Ilana. He has gone out searching for his meaning hunting for us from the heart and He will hate him. So Ibrahim alayhis salam asked her

00:08:58--> 00:09:07

about their life, their livelihood and their condition for God, she replied,

00:09:10--> 00:09:29

We are in great distress. For you leave him we should. We are in straitened circumstances and in difficulty severity for sugar in a so that she complained on he says

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

on Ebrahim Salam said

00:09:35--> 00:09:41

either as a jockey for La Silla. So when your husband arrives,

00:09:42--> 00:09:53

convey my greetings to him. What do you love and say to him, you're late, you're at a bit about that he should change the threshold of his door

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

for a magic smart Eagle getting the answer sheet

00:10:01--> 00:10:11

So when this marine and his Salaam arrived, it was as though he sensed something. And as I mentioned in one narration, he smelled the fragrance of his farm.

00:10:14--> 00:10:16

For Carl, so he said her job

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

has anyone come to the

00:10:20--> 00:10:24

pilot Miriam? She said yes. Jana Shea from Gaza waka

00:10:26--> 00:10:30

an old man came to us such and such.

00:10:31--> 00:10:38

And in one generation can use the fifth edition, meaning in another narration elsewhere, not in Makati.

00:10:39--> 00:10:55

She spoke very contemptuous of him disparagingly and disrespectfully of him saying yes, and the old man came such and such he was like this, he was like that. So she spoke of him disparagingly, and disrespectfully

00:10:56--> 00:11:09

for Sedona for Southern Africa. So he questioned us about you. So I informed him was the attorney gave ation. And he asked me how was our life?

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

So I informed him and he just didn't wash it. But we are in great difficulty and severity of the hill osaki bishi. So he said Did he

00:11:25--> 00:11:31

instruct you with anything? I'll marry him? She said yes. I'm running an opera singer.

00:11:32--> 00:11:51

He instructed me to convey greetings to you. We are all unsaved the year after but about to change that you should change the threshold of your dog on smart la ceram said their key fob that is my father was the attorney and offered it

00:11:52--> 00:11:57

and he has instructed me that I should separate from you. In How can you be Aliki?

00:11:59--> 00:12:05

Go back to your friend join your family for the love for her so he divorced her. What does that word mean?

00:12:06--> 00:12:15

And he married another one from monks meaning he married another lady from the same tribe of Jerome because that that was the only tribe there.

00:12:16--> 00:12:18

And in essence he was an outsider

00:12:21--> 00:12:24

for a bit and who are our Hema Masha Allah.

00:12:25--> 00:12:35

So you Ibrahim alayhis salam remained away from them, as long as I wish to do so after that encounter, he never got to see his son.

00:12:37--> 00:12:40

But he only spoke to his wife. And then he returned.

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

And

00:12:43--> 00:13:00

the only instructions he left behind was to convey his greetings and to tell him to change the threshold of his door, which meant that he should separate from her. I explained this in some detail last week. So I'll repeat that part. We're moving on further with the angle Ebrahim on Mashallah.

00:13:01--> 00:13:18

After having returned Ibrahim alayhis salam stayed away from them, meaning his family for as long as the lowish from back then he came to them afterwards for them Yujin. So again, he didn't find his son, he's married for the Hooda Anima.

00:13:20--> 00:13:52

So he visited the house, he visited his wife, for the other hand, so he questioned her about him. For Karla Elena, he has gone out searching for meaning hunting for us on Ibrahim alayhis salaam said different How are you? What's the other half a chicken? We're here at him. And he questioned her about their life and their condition for audits so she replied Hayden was sir. We are in great good

00:13:54--> 00:14:02

and great ease. What was the law and she praised the law for all so he said

00:14:03--> 00:14:04

What is your food?

00:14:06--> 00:14:07

She said me

00:14:08--> 00:14:38

are the financial robber. He said so what's your drink on it? She replied water. On Rahim Allah said Allah from Abadi club and for Lakshmi will not have a love bless them in meat and the water in the meat and water. parliament to be your solar La La he was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, What am your mama even had? And in those days they didn't have grains. What organic

00:14:41--> 00:14:57

and had they grains Ibrahim alayhis salaam would have prayed for the blessing of grains to for them on profits on the line he was seldom said for him Allah ya que la la la maka

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

in LA LA

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

You are a car

00:15:02--> 00:15:05

that these two mean meats and water.

00:15:07--> 00:15:08

No one

00:15:09--> 00:15:10

subsists

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

anywhere other than mcca

00:15:16--> 00:15:18

except that they do not agree with him.

00:15:20--> 00:15:37

On he says he, Ibrahim Alayhi, Salam said for either jazz or jokey fuckery alayhis salaam. So when your husband arrives convey greetings to him, when would he and instruct him? youth better actor better Bobby?

00:15:38--> 00:15:39

That he should

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

keep the threshold of his door

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

for any one duration

00:15:49--> 00:16:03

for in the hassle and minsan that he should keep the threshold of his door for it is the goodness of the house. For the manager. He's smart enough to win smart even in his salon arrived on he said

00:16:05--> 00:16:10

Did anyone come to you bothered Miriam? She said yes. Adana Sheehan,

00:16:12--> 00:16:15

an elderly gentleman, an elderly man came to his house and

00:16:17--> 00:16:38

have a beautiful appearance with an attorney and she praised him for selling the bottle and he questioned me about you so I informed him for 70 and he asked me gay Federation or how is our life for an advocate? So I informed him that we are in great good

00:16:39--> 00:17:13

on ebron is my regular his Salaam said for all swankivy she did he then instruct you of anything other than he said yes. Or Yoko la casa around he conveys greetings to you. We are mortal. And just the data that's about it. And he commands you to keep the threshold of your house of your door. Out of that key fob he said this is my father won the lottery, and you are the threshold amount of money and security. He has commanded me to retain

00:17:14--> 00:17:27

from Olympus and Masha Allah, then he remained away from them for as long as Allah wished. So he went back. And again, he didn't need his son on the second location.

00:17:28--> 00:17:34

The next part of the heading is actually the final parts, which deals with the final visits of Brahim ready to sit down.

00:17:36--> 00:17:38

And we'll arrive at that later on.

00:17:39--> 00:17:42

But Allow me to explain

00:17:43--> 00:17:48

this section here about the two visits of ismart eagerly Ebrahim at Eva's Salaam

00:17:50--> 00:17:52

when he didn't actually get to see his son.

00:17:54--> 00:17:55

But even in the absence of his son,

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

without meeting him,

00:18:00--> 00:18:02

Ibrahim alayhis salam ensured

00:18:04--> 00:18:14

that he took care of the household needs, and the social, religious and personal welfare of his son,

00:18:16--> 00:18:17

even though he didn't get to see.

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

And having done that he returned.

00:18:23--> 00:18:24

On the first occasion,

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

as he says he arrived.

00:18:29--> 00:18:32

He didn't find his son smart at least.

00:18:33--> 00:18:44

So he visited the house. And he inquired of the wife of a smiley, his son and he had not met before. So he was never present in the marriage in his son's marriage.

00:18:48--> 00:18:52

And he asked her ways, he so she said that he's gone out hunting for us.

00:18:53--> 00:19:02

So he asked her, how is life How are you? How is life at home? What's your livelihood like? And she began complaining.

00:19:07--> 00:19:09

And she complained to him in many ways.

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

And then what should

00:19:15--> 00:19:18

in the field in Russia?

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

We are in severity. We are in straitened circumstances. We are in dire straits. We are in difficulty.

00:19:31--> 00:19:42

And she continued to complain. That's all she said. Another thing is, she didn't treat Ibrahim alayhis salam, well, she didn't mistreat him.

00:19:44--> 00:19:50

But she never received him. Well. She didn't entertain him. She never offered any food.

00:19:51--> 00:19:53

She wasn't hospitable.

00:19:55--> 00:19:56

She

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

did not take care of any need.

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

She did not inquire of his needs or welfare.

00:20:05--> 00:20:19

And ignoring Ibrahim alayhis salaam, her focus was on herself, among them as a family. We are in great difficulty we are in severity, we are in dire straits.

00:20:24--> 00:20:38

She never mistreated him. But at the same time, she didn't treat him well. Ibrahim alayhis salaam, told her, convey my greetings to my two. He never said I'm his father. So convey my greetings to your husband

00:20:39--> 00:20:45

and tell him to change the threshold of his door, the doorstep.

00:20:46--> 00:20:55

When he met his smile, either his salon came back, he brought him a salon explained it. His wife explained everything to him.

00:20:56--> 00:21:09

He understood immediately, in fact, when he entered an associate, it was as though he's, he felt something. The son being a prophet of Allah felt the presence of His Holy Father.

00:21:10--> 00:21:14

The Prophet of Allah is not as fragrance as mentioned in one narration.

00:21:15--> 00:21:22

So he questioned his wife when she told him Yes, such and such a man came and as I mentioned, in one narration, it's meant it said, gums

00:21:25--> 00:21:30

she described the father to the husband,

00:21:31--> 00:21:36

as in a very derogatory, disparaging manner, saying, oh, he was like this. He was like that.

00:21:38--> 00:21:54

When she told him that he said, change the door of your doorstep the threshold of your door, smile, he said, and said, that was my father, and he has told me to separate from you. Join your family, and then he divorced her. And then he married another woman from the same tribe.

00:21:57--> 00:22:08

Having done all of this, Ibrahim alayhis salam returned, he didn't get to see his son. And as the other man say, Ibrahim alayhis. Salaam never came to marry his son, he came to divorce us.

00:22:10--> 00:22:15

Meaning he he did not come to get his son married. He came to get his son divorced.

00:22:16--> 00:22:19

And I explained in detail last week, why?

00:22:20--> 00:22:29

Because apartment in life is supposed to be someone who aged you someone who assists you.

00:22:30--> 00:22:33

Someone who is a boon, not a burden.

00:22:34--> 00:22:38

Someone who's an impetus, not an hint, not a hindrance.

00:22:40--> 00:22:49

Someone who is who carries his or her weight and helps you carry your wings rather than becoming a burden

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

on me,

00:22:54--> 00:22:58

that's a true span. A man or woman, husband or wife.

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

Leaves Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:23:06--> 00:23:07

After EMA

00:23:08--> 00:23:10

and moderation after taqwa.

00:23:11--> 00:23:15

Allah has not given any man any better gift.

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

When a woman and a wife

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

who when he looks at her, she pleases him.

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

When he gives her instructions, she obeys him.

00:23:34--> 00:23:40

And when he is absent from her, she guards her chastity just as a last.

00:23:42--> 00:23:50

So after he Ma'am, after taqwa, one of the greatest gifts, anyone can have man or woman

00:23:51--> 00:23:56

is to have a spouse or husband or wife, who when they look at them pleased them

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

who when they bid them,

00:24:00--> 00:24:01

enjoying their command,

00:24:03--> 00:24:05

and who, when they are absent from them,

00:24:06--> 00:24:15

are faithful, God their chastity and continue to fulfill the law of Allah in their presence or in the absence

00:24:19--> 00:24:20

of a laugh a bit.

00:24:21--> 00:24:22

If the opposite is true.

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

Where, despite

00:24:29--> 00:24:32

despite faith, despite the what

00:24:33--> 00:24:36

if someone is burdened with

00:24:37--> 00:24:38

an unhelpful,

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

burdensome,

00:24:42--> 00:24:43

uncooperative

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

spouse,

00:24:47--> 00:24:51

then that can be a true test and trial from a last panel.

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

But it can still be passed. Allah subhanho wa Taala tests His servants. Allah tested the MBR and he

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

We'll start with Salon to their spouses. He tested mohalla his salon through his wife, he tested loot la salon through his wife, he tested

00:25:11--> 00:25:13

asiyah, the wife of around through her husband,

00:25:15--> 00:25:17

and all of them were shining examples.

00:25:19--> 00:25:20

But

00:25:22--> 00:25:31

Ibrahim Alayhi Salam felt that his son was to become a leader of his people. He was to carry the message of Allah He was to lead the people.

00:25:32--> 00:25:43

But how would he be able to lead his people when he did not enjoy that support in his own household? And not only that, being a prophet of Allah, he would have had the strength to do it alone.

00:25:46--> 00:26:23

But it was also a question of worthiness. Such an individual who was ungrateful, who was incessantly complaining, who could not see beyond herself and her immediate family, so much so that she couldn't even offer grace and hospitality to an old gentleman who was visiting her family who was inquiring of her husband, and it was standing at their doorstep. Such an individual was not worthy of being in a property household. So Ibrahim alayhis salam, O Allah subhanho, wa Taala, being a messenger of Allah,

00:26:24--> 00:26:45

endowed with great foresight, perception, wisdom, sagacity, Ibrahim alayhis salam instantly recognize that this lady is not were worthy of being in my son, a prophet of Allah as household and marriage. So he said, change your threshold, threshold of your door.

00:26:46--> 00:26:51

And after that he left so he came not to get his son married, but he came to get some divorce.

00:26:52--> 00:26:56

When his son are married, another woman from the same tribe of gentlemen,

00:26:58--> 00:27:12

Ibrahim alayhis, salaam had the exact same encounter with that family. On his second visit, he remained absent for as long as the law wished him to remain to remain away. And then when he came to Makkah, all the way from

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

he came to the house of a smile he that he said that he wasn't there. So enquired

00:27:20--> 00:27:36

the wording of it suggests that it's really his Sadam tried to inquire of his son around the city before he went to the house. Because when he couldn't find him, then he visited the house. He asked the wife, where is he? He's gone out hunting.

00:27:38--> 00:27:43

So he brought him in, he took the opportunity to question her just as he questioned the previous wife.

00:27:45--> 00:27:46

How long?

00:27:50--> 00:27:52

She said, in that Hayden was,

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

Praise be to Allah, we are in great good blessing, provision and ease.

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

And she praised the last panel who was

00:28:04--> 00:28:06

grateful to him being thankful to him.

00:28:08--> 00:28:11

Then he asked her something which

00:28:12--> 00:28:13

he never asked the previous one.

00:28:14--> 00:28:21

But it's also mentioned in another iteration of the heart of the heart itself that she offered

00:28:22--> 00:28:27

to be hospitable. She said she offered hospitality and grace and said, Why don't you

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

come eat with us to send

00:28:33--> 00:28:43

visitors eat with us? She offered great and she showed great hospitality. He then asked her from our own welcome What is your food?

00:28:47--> 00:28:48

So she said a lamb means

00:28:50--> 00:29:01

then he has he said for Mashallah, welcome. So what is your drink? She said a man water. So Ibrahim alayhis salam pray to Allah La Abadi, klam,

00:29:02--> 00:29:16

Philately will map and in another narration of mojari Allahumma barik Levin futami masabi Allah bless them in the means and in the water will bless them in their food and in their drink.

00:29:19--> 00:29:31

And again, in another have eatable hardy the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Baraka to him without Ibrahim alayhis salam that there is blessing in the food of the Arabs, because of the daughter of Ibrahim Malays.

00:29:34--> 00:29:37

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also explaining

00:29:38--> 00:29:41

that no one subsists

00:29:42--> 00:29:46

no one survives exclusively on mint and water

00:29:47--> 00:29:49

anywhere apart from the people of

00:29:51--> 00:29:57

Africa except that this meats and water exclusively do not agree with them.

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

Allow me to explain this

00:30:01--> 00:30:12

And then the province of the lovely Muslim also added that in those days that the very early days of the settlements of Mecca during the time will be smart even in his Salaam. Oh, yes. Before I continue, I just like to

00:30:14--> 00:30:30

clarify something right at the beginning a few weeks ago, when I was mentioning the history of Ibrahim alayhis salam and some of the chronology, I said Ibrahim alayhis, Salaam 2000 years ago,

00:30:31--> 00:30:33

and that was a slip of the tongue.

00:30:34--> 00:30:55

The some people questioned me about it afterwards. And what I intended to say was 2000 years. See before the Common Era, the Christian era, so 4000 years from now, but 2000 years before the Christian calendar, so the 4000 years from now.

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

So, at the time of his morality Salaam,

00:31:01--> 00:31:05

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said they never had grain.

00:31:06--> 00:31:21

If they had grain, then Ibrahim Alayhi Salam would have prayed for the blessing of grains to for the people of maca. All that simply means that muckety muck Rama has we know, being a barren Valley, even now, as it was then

00:31:23--> 00:31:25

was it there was no vegetation.

00:31:26--> 00:32:05

There wasn't a drop of water, a blade of grass, no vegetation, the only water that appeared was well of Zamzam. And that was miraculous in itself. But they, it was a nomadic society, even in the earliest days, until many, many generations later. And the regional mugger doesn't really allow for agriculture. So it wasn't an agricultural region. As a result, there was no grain and Mike Medina, even at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And Madina munawwara was very fertile. And, in fact, some of the valleys

00:32:06--> 00:32:08

which dried up afterwards,

00:32:09--> 00:32:14

were actually running rivers, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:32:15--> 00:32:23

So, Medina was always very fertile, it was a very fertile oasis. And it was great agriculture there not just

00:32:26--> 00:32:36

dates, but other properties too. But Makoto makara, Rama wasn't an agricultural region. So their nomadic lifestyle

00:32:37--> 00:32:51

was exclusively one their food was mainly just meat, hunted, need just it's my man would go out to hunt. So hunted meat and and domesticated meat, and what

00:32:52--> 00:32:56

and in wonder ration milk, and the milk would be from the animals.

00:32:57--> 00:32:58

So

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

because there was no grain the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not pray for grain for

00:33:06--> 00:33:16

it Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam, but he prayed for meat and water, but because of the drought or Ebrahim alayhis salam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that there is

00:33:17--> 00:33:20

that there is no one anywhere.

00:33:21--> 00:33:23

Apart from Mercado Corona,

00:33:24--> 00:33:31

apart from the people of Makkah, who can subsist and survive exclusively on meat and water, except for the people

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

and that's very true.

00:33:36--> 00:33:37

The Arabs

00:33:38--> 00:33:40

the true Arabs from the

00:33:41--> 00:33:45

from the family of Ibrahim alayhis salam from the family of smart

00:33:46--> 00:33:47

they,

00:33:48--> 00:33:50

their consumption of meat.

00:33:53--> 00:34:06

Excessive though may be at times exclusive and that they won't have anything else but need some water. prophets. Allahu alayhi wa sallam says this doesn't agree with anyone in can't agree with anyone, except for these people.

00:34:07--> 00:34:20

In fact, a few years ago, we had an invitation at great scholars house in McDonald Corona. And while at the invitation, there was meat galore.

00:34:21--> 00:34:22

And

00:34:23--> 00:34:25

there were a number of non Arabs present

00:34:28--> 00:34:41

including us, and we were only able to have so much but they informed us that the errors the mean the true Arabs have meet all the time.

00:34:42--> 00:34:59

And it never seems to affect them in any way whatsoever. Nope. It doesn't affect them at all. They can eat meat exclusively and excessively but it doesn't seem to affect them. Why? Baraka Ibrahim alayhis salam

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

This is a burqa and the blessing of the dog out of the brown Himalayas.

00:35:05--> 00:35:08

Allah bless them in their food and their drink.

00:35:09--> 00:35:31

So having had this conversation, Ibrahim alayhis, salaam, prayed. And then he told her that when your husband returns convey my Salaam to him my greetings and tell him to retain the threshold of his door. When he returned, he told her this was my father, now, and he has instructed me to retain you to keep you. And he also added for in the hustle salon.

00:35:34--> 00:35:41

Therefore, its meaning the threshold IE her, she is the goodness of your house in another generation.

00:35:43--> 00:35:45

Now see the contrast between

00:35:46--> 00:35:59

the first wife and the second wife. And there was nothing major, only a few things. Yes, Ibrahim alayhis. Salam had the foresight and the wisdom to instruct his son to divorce one and keep the other.

00:36:01--> 00:36:09

And his only encounter his only conversation was at the doorstep except with the second one who did offer hospitality.

00:36:11--> 00:36:13

And what was the difference?

00:36:14--> 00:36:20

The first one wasn't hospitable. The second one was offered food and drink.

00:36:21--> 00:36:26

The first one, and this was the major factor. She complained

00:36:27--> 00:36:28

Shimon

00:36:32--> 00:36:33

she was ungrateful.

00:36:35--> 00:36:43

The second one was grateful. She didn't complain. She didn't moan. She praised the last panel.

00:36:44--> 00:36:52

Even though the condition of ismar eataly. His RAM and his household was exactly the same on both occasions.

00:36:53--> 00:36:55

There was no difference.

00:36:56--> 00:37:04

Yet for the same livelihood, one monk groaned and complained and wasn't grateful.

00:37:05--> 00:37:12

And the other for exactly the same condition and lifestyle and livelihood praise that last panel

00:37:13--> 00:37:19

and was grateful to Allah and was content and felt sufficed.

00:37:21--> 00:37:23

And that Ibrahim alayhis salam said,

00:37:24--> 00:37:26

and because she showed respect,

00:37:27--> 00:37:30

Ebrahim alayhis salam said divorce one key.

00:37:32--> 00:37:33

Now,

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

one or two lessons from that one is gonna.

00:37:38--> 00:37:40

The other is respect.

00:37:42--> 00:37:44

me speak about respect first.

00:37:46--> 00:37:50

Respect is an integral,

00:37:51--> 00:37:54

innate inherent part of Islam.

00:37:55--> 00:38:06

So much about Islam is to do with respect. It's part of our religion, as part of our ethics as part of our culture. It's part of our value system.

00:38:08--> 00:38:13

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, He who does not respect our elders.

00:38:17--> 00:38:23

I'm sure he does not show mercy and compassion to our younger ones, than he is not helpless.

00:38:25--> 00:38:32

Respecting those who are senior to us in age in authority in position in family

00:38:35--> 00:38:49

is part and parcel of our image. Respect is good. And it's not just our religion. Many cultures throughout the world, they show huge respect, though they may not share the faith of Islam.

00:38:50--> 00:39:07

their culture is very similar, in that they respect the elders, the parents, people who are senior to them, and not just very senior, even if there's an age gap of one year, the younger brothers and sisters the younger siblings will respect their older siblings

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

by age,

00:39:12--> 00:39:15

any seniority deserves respect.

00:39:17--> 00:39:20

And unfortunately, this is something which we are rapidly lose

00:39:22--> 00:39:36

respect for our elders. And in this particular case, when a man marries into a family, a woman marries into a family, it's not just about him and her. It's about the two families two families come together.

00:39:38--> 00:39:40

A person has in laws.

00:39:43--> 00:39:44

They ought to be respected.

00:39:45--> 00:39:57

Despite one's disagreements with on occasions, they are to be respected. The elders are to be respected. The father in law is like a father figure. The mother in law is like a motherfucker

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

Well, no outlaws

00:40:03--> 00:40:04

their in laws.

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

And

00:40:12--> 00:40:17

Ibrahim alayhis salaam instructed his son to divorce his wife,

00:40:18--> 00:40:21

because she failed to respect him as he should have been respect,

00:40:22--> 00:40:38

not as a messenger of Allah, because she didn't know he was a messenger of Allah. She didn't even know he was a father anymore. But even as an elderly stranger, she failed to show sufficient courtesy and respect.

00:40:39--> 00:40:43

And that was a character and befitting a wife of the prophets of

00:40:46--> 00:41:03

respect as part of our culture, so much about our culture our religion is includes respect. I won't go into too much detail I'll reserve this topic for another occasion. But just to give you one example, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah in the Holy Quran, what does he say?

00:41:09--> 00:41:10

That

00:41:12--> 00:41:18

that he will shout you Illa what a Shaolin haram or what have you what Allah

00:41:21--> 00:41:27

but do not consider lawful, ie, consider her arm meaning sacred.

00:41:29--> 00:41:33

One of the meanings of museums the name of hover, which is

00:41:35--> 00:41:45

unlawful, but the whole idea of being unlawful is that it's forbidden. Forbidden, meaning it's, it's to be kept away from.

00:41:46--> 00:41:49

It's to be revered, it's sacred.

00:41:51--> 00:41:52

It shouldn't be touched.

00:41:53--> 00:41:54

That's what I'm saying.

00:41:56--> 00:42:05

So one of the meanings of Haram is not just impure or filthy, or not good, it actually means sacred, unlawful forbidden, prohibited.

00:42:06--> 00:42:12

So Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, you do not consider hollow meaning, do not consider

00:42:14--> 00:42:25

this to be not sacred, rather considered sacred, are you worthy of reverence? So what then does the last panel who would that helps

00:42:27--> 00:42:30

that consider this to be worthy of reverence?

00:42:31--> 00:42:37

Not just respect, but reverence. sha Allah, the symbols of Allah

00:42:40--> 00:43:07

and what are some of the symbols of Allah many but one of the symbols of Allah mentioned in the Quran in the south our miroir dementia in verily the Hilux of Safa, Marwah of the symbols of Allah. So to inanimate silent jacket pieces of rock up some of the symbols of Allah subhanho wa Taala, that are worthy of reverence. Allah continues

00:43:08--> 00:43:17

when a shadow and do not consider lawful IE revere the sacred month, then what

00:43:20--> 00:43:22

and nor the sacrificial animals

00:43:24--> 00:43:26

the Arabs would take with them,

00:43:28--> 00:43:32

sacrificial animals, camels, calves, to be slaughtered.

00:43:34--> 00:43:54

So they would drive them and travel with them from their hometowns and cities, all the way to Makoto makara. In order to slaughter them in the vicinity of Makkah, and sacrifice them for the sake of Allah. These driven animals to the sanctuary of Allah for sacrifice, were known as head

00:43:55--> 00:44:06

and how were they marked? people they would mark them so that people would realize that these animals are consecrated for sacrifice. They are not to be harmed, touched, hunted, or rolled.

00:44:10--> 00:44:13

So they would mark them with garlic.

00:44:14--> 00:44:24

And what kind of gardens in Arabia you wouldn't find fresh flowers all the time, but even strings of dry leaves, or sometimes bark of wood,

00:44:25--> 00:44:28

and sometimes even old sandals.

00:44:29--> 00:44:42

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam garland did his sacrificial animals show the love garden did his sacrificial animals. So Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, Well, what do what? What? What a shadow

00:44:43--> 00:44:45

and neither the sacred month

00:44:46--> 00:44:51

and neither the sacrificial animals all the God.

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

So according to this verse of the last panel, who without even the sandals that are hung around

00:45:00--> 00:45:06

sacrificial animals as Garland's, marking them for sacrifice are to be revealed and respect.

00:45:08--> 00:45:11

sandals, Garland's of dry leaves,

00:45:12--> 00:45:19

in elements, jagged pieces of rock. These are all parts of the symbols of a last panel.

00:45:20--> 00:45:39

If even these are to be respected and revered because of their connection, and then Mr. To our last panel with Adda and the house of Allah, then what are things such as the holy war and the Golan the speech of Allah, the youth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, religion, religious symbols,

00:45:41--> 00:45:46

knowledge, people of religion, people of knowledge, everything is about respect.

00:45:48--> 00:45:54

And not just people of knowledge, one's parents, one seniors, older people,

00:45:56--> 00:45:58

respecting one's father, one's mother.

00:46:01--> 00:46:07

The Arabs even before Islam had this culture of respect. We learned that the prophets of Allah Almighty Who was sending

00:46:09--> 00:46:10

his grandfather have done

00:46:13--> 00:46:15

a noble leader of branch.

00:46:16--> 00:46:17

He had so many sons.

00:46:20--> 00:46:20

People like Abu

00:46:22--> 00:46:24

Hamza, the warrior, later

00:46:26--> 00:46:29

hunter warrior, but his sons,

00:46:31--> 00:46:37

nearer numerous, every one of them a spectacle in himself. And yet,

00:46:38--> 00:47:15

Abdulmutallab would sit on a couch reclining against the garb. And even in the days of Jay Hillier before Islam, all his sons, adults amongst them, would sit in front of him in a semicircle respectfully, and not one of them ever had the audacity to occupy his place or sit on the same couch. And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a young child would come and sit on the couch, knowing their tradition, knowing their respect, they will try to remove him, because no one could sit on the same characters.

00:47:17--> 00:47:41

But when they will try to shoo away the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a young child, that he would prevent them, rebuke them and say, leave my son, and then he would draw him close and make him sit next to him respectfully on the couch, and he would say to his sons, all seated before him, Do not rebuke him, leave my son, for he shall one day have a great state.

00:47:42--> 00:47:51

But the moral of the story is even in the days of jahai. The Arabs have great respect for their parents, so much so

00:47:53--> 00:48:03

that Abdullah had not obeyed the rule the leader of the hypocrites and Medina when he wants spoke disparagingly of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam referred to in sort of them one after all.

00:48:04--> 00:48:07

Libra Jana in Medina, regional asmin.

00:48:09--> 00:48:24

His son, who was also called Abdullah, so the full name was Abdullah hidden Abdullah hypnobabies saloon that Abdullah the son of Abdullah, he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said to him, all prophets of Allah

00:48:26--> 00:48:33

the whole of Medina knows that there is no sun more beautiful to his father than I am to my father.

00:48:37--> 00:48:42

And then the story continues, but we don't have time to go into that even in Makoto macabre when

00:48:43--> 00:49:23

families and great when individuals embraced Islam, some of them did so secretly out of the fear of their parents and their fathers. And some of the fathers shackled and imprisoned their own sons. So adult sons were imprisoned and shackled by their own fathers. The point is, despite their differing faiths, they still have such respect for their fathers and for their parents, but they allowed themselves to be imprisoned in their own homes by their fathers who did not even share the same fate. Today, we should ask ourselves,

00:49:25--> 00:49:31

do we respect our parents, as even the pagans respected their pagan parents then,

00:49:33--> 00:49:41

when we have been commanded to do so, respect is an integral part of Islam. And what the story tells us is that even with one's in laws,

00:49:44--> 00:49:50

to respect one's father in law, one's mother in law, for both husband and wife is important.

00:49:51--> 00:49:54

We may have their disagreements, but one needs to respect.

00:49:55--> 00:50:00

So this is another topic in itself but that's one lesson to be learned from this episode. You

00:50:00--> 00:50:07

Ibrahim alayhi salam, because of the lack of respect parts, partly because of the lack of respect of one wife told him his son divorce.

00:50:10--> 00:50:17

And because of the others respect and deference, he said, Keep partly, the other partial reason was Banana.

00:50:19--> 00:50:30

Banana bernera is a term in Arabic, which means it's very difficult to translate into a single word, but it means to suffice with one's lot in life.

00:50:32--> 00:50:34

And not only to survive, but to be content with it.

00:50:36--> 00:50:38

To be content with what we have,

00:50:39--> 00:51:03

not to be disgruntled, disgruntled, not to incessantly complain, not to moan not to groan not to complain, but to be joyful, happy content, and sufficing without a lot in life, we've got pressure provisions we have and to be grateful to Allah subhanho data that's the meaning of banana and so it's a very important part of Islam

00:51:05--> 00:51:26

very important part I'm delighted Mohammed mouse that'll be Allahumma relates and had these recorded by Muslim in this province a lot It was wa sallam says, at a flea Herman Aslan. What was it a Kapha mera La Habra, Mata, that indeed successful is He who has embraced Islam.

00:51:28--> 00:51:38

And then he has been given only sufficient provisions meaning provisions that suffice him or her then walk a narrow law.

00:51:40--> 00:51:46

And then Allah makes him on every meaning sufficing and content with what he has given.

00:51:49--> 00:51:59

According to the words are a sort of last alarm, it was seldom the this is a key to success, this is a mark of success for a person to be successful.

00:52:01--> 00:52:05

He only has to have three things and he is successful in the dunya and in the

00:52:06--> 00:52:23

in the first life and the afterlife. One is faith The first is faith the second enough food to keep his back straight enough shelter to allow him to close his eyes, enough clothing for him to

00:52:24--> 00:52:32

protect himself from the elements sufficient provision and the third thing gonna content

00:52:33--> 00:52:44

the feeling of satisfaction and sufficiency with one's locked in life of whatever one part one has otherwise because

00:52:45--> 00:52:47

rich wealth

00:52:49--> 00:53:02

is at the heart of either getting reelected Imam Bukhari Muslim from Abu huraira hora de la basura La Silla la equal send them says Lisa Levin and Catherine Adam will are in a knifes.

00:53:03--> 00:53:27

riches wealth, are not from excessive possessions, or from fortune out of the means fortune, wealth lessons in and out of wealth is not from great fortune, excessive fortune, will accumulate in avenel. Rather, wealth is the richness and the wealth of the heart.

00:53:28--> 00:53:35

If a person is poor, regardless of whether a person is poor of him, or rich on hand,

00:53:37--> 00:53:40

if they are original hearts, they are truly wealthy.

00:53:43--> 00:53:54

And regardless of whether a person has something in their hand or possession or not, and possession or not, if they are poor or heart, disgruntled, discontent,

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

and satisfy

00:53:59--> 00:54:22

moaning, groaning, complaining, then no matter how rich they are, they will always be poor. They will always be impoverished, they will never have enough. And as I mentioned earlier, both wives lived in exactly the same conditions enjoy the same lifestyle had the same livelihood at the same provisions. Yet one was grateful the other was ungrateful.

00:54:23--> 00:54:44

In the in gratitude, one in hand, gratitude one couldn't see beyond herself. Very self occupied and that's what this does. And the other despite having enjoying the same livelihood and lifestyle, she was able to look beyond be grateful to our last panel without or be hospitable, be welcoming, accommodating,

00:54:47--> 00:54:59

moaning, groaning incessantly complaining, this is a nasty habit. It eats away at a person. It destroys one's peace of mind. In fact,

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

Being happy is a gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala himself.

00:55:05--> 00:55:31

Truly, remember the following produces a very beautiful Hadith which the other authors don't relate. It's only to be found in the Muslim Imam hanbang de la la and actually also in the sun and urban imagine. But the story is that one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came out with water still, with the effects of water still visible on his water still visible on his head.

00:55:32--> 00:55:35

And he came out looking very peaceful and joyful,

00:55:37--> 00:55:52

joyful content. So this How about the alarm rang? Who said to him naraka you've been knifes that will messenger of Allah, we see you gleeful of heart joyful of soul.

00:55:53--> 00:55:56

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said he indeed.

00:55:58--> 00:56:07

Then so how about the law? Having said that to the Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they began discussing wealth, riches and wealth.

00:56:09--> 00:56:22

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, law but said we live in a limited time de la. There is no harm in wealth for one who is wary of Allah.

00:56:23--> 00:56:25

So if a person has taqwa,

00:56:27--> 00:56:30

then riches will not harm him. Wealth won't harm him.

00:56:32--> 00:56:43

But it has to it has to be coupled with the law. So he said law that's the lemon law that's similar in eliminate a law that is no harm in wealth.

00:56:46--> 00:56:48

For one who is wary of a law,

00:56:50--> 00:56:52

them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

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

that health

00:56:58--> 00:57:12

but even better than wealth, health is far better. For one who has taqwa of Allah. So health is far better and more important than wealth, even in the words of the messenger subtle allottee.

00:57:13--> 00:57:26

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, well, three will never see me in a name, that the joyfulness and the gleeful pneus of the heart of the soul. This is one of the gifts and the blessings of

00:57:29--> 00:57:30

just be joyful,

00:57:31--> 00:57:32

to be gleeful,

00:57:33--> 00:57:35

to be contempt, to be happy,

00:57:37--> 00:57:42

to be satisfied. This in itself is a blessing of a last panel. Unless we think that

00:57:44--> 00:57:53

we love to count our misfortunes. We love to enumerate our calamities. We love to point out what we don't have.

00:57:57--> 00:58:11

And so we may ask ourselves, well, how can I be happy? When I have this going on when I'm suffering in this manner? How can I be content when I see him and her and what she's got some what he's got

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

these leads

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

to law healing.

00:58:21--> 00:58:23

from seeing them there'll be a lot more

00:58:26--> 00:58:28

Prophet sallallahu wasallam sayings

00:58:33--> 00:58:50

it's a very beautiful, how do I relate to the continuous change from me till the man who says had the thinnest smile on the face mnemonic can be Xena the annual average and it'd be great or the Allahu I'm assuming that it was seldom upon is another.

00:58:53--> 00:58:56

Lady family will help for younger men who

00:58:58--> 00:59:36

love writing who seldom sayings. When one of you looks at someone who has been given preference and privilege and superiority, in wealth and in creation, and the meaning of creation is everything about the dunya whether it's looks and appearance, or riches or possessions, or estate, it doesn't matter. If I'm about to come in on foot The money will help. When one of you looks at someone who has been given privilege and superiority over them in wealth and in creation, meaning in the dunya.

00:59:38--> 00:59:44

Then alienvault ylonen Hoover's funnymen then let's look at one who is below him.

00:59:47--> 00:59:49

Let's look at one who is below.

00:59:50--> 00:59:58

And in in another Hadees related again from Abu huraira how the law firm records Batman Muslim in history, pursuit Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

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

Latin zero 11

01:00:04--> 01:00:05

Latin zero 11

01:00:09--> 01:00:23

in total ilam an astronomical, one atom through a lemon folk for what Allah does the rubini aleikum, prophets, Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Look at those who are beneath you.

01:00:25--> 01:00:55

Look at those who are beneath you do not look at those who are above you. For this look, are you looking at those who are beneath you, not looking at those who are beneath looking at those who are beneath you're not looking at those who are above you for what Allah does, that will be an amateur La La come, this is far more worthy and deserving. And leading to the fact that you will not degrade, you will not degrade or holding contempt allows blessings on.

01:00:58--> 01:01:09

If a person always looks at others who are more privileged, or who we think are more privileged, we always believe the grass is greener on the other side. Truth is the grass is greener on both sides.

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

And as human beings we are never content.

01:01:15--> 01:01:19

If we are here, we want to jump there when we are there. We want to leap here.

01:01:22--> 01:01:52

We are never happy. We always believe this is why no matter what we have is to do with the heart. If the heart is not happy, if the heart is not content, no matter what's our material possessions, we are never satisfied, we always think a bit more, some more. And then I'll be happy some more I'll be happy. We think if I get this done, I'll be happy. If I get this done, I'll be satisfied. We have all these landmarks. We have all these

01:01:54--> 01:02:35

waypoints that once I get here, everything will be sorted. Once I get there, everything will be sorted. And it's never ending. When we're young, we think Well, let me just finish my degree. Let me just do my GCSE. Let me just finish school after school. As soon as I finished my a levels in college, everything will be well. Then as soon as I finished my degree, everything will go out. As soon as I got married, everything will go as soon as I'm settled down as soon as I got my own house. As soon as I got my own property as soon as I've got my own career, my business, it never ends. Man continues to make plans. Just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam drew a box, he drew a box.

01:02:37--> 01:02:43

And he drew a long line intersecting the box stretching from before and way beyond.

01:02:46--> 01:02:51

And then he drew small lines across the outboard

01:02:52--> 01:02:56

all of this in the sand and then told us he told us a How about the alarm.

01:02:58--> 01:03:04

The center line is our man's hopes, dreams and aspirations. And they go they stretch

01:03:06--> 01:03:27

and these little lines intersecting the outer border. These are the calamities and the misfortunes that before. If this doesn't get him then the next one will if that one doesn't get them the next one will. And if none of these calamities and misfortunes that befall him, do not get him, then the box of life will get I'm paraphrasing.

01:03:28--> 01:03:32

But his aspirations will remain unfulfilled beyond the measure of his lack.

01:03:33--> 01:03:38

So our hopes, our dreams, our aspirations, our goals are there.

01:03:39--> 01:03:48

And our life or the end of our life is closer to us than the laces of our sandals or the straps of our sandals.

01:03:51--> 01:03:53

So it never ends.

01:03:54--> 01:03:57

We are never happy with what we have now and where we are.

01:03:59--> 01:04:02

We're always looking somewhere else. We're here now.

01:04:04--> 01:04:08

And we want to be somewhere else because we think being somewhere else. It's going to be happening.

01:04:09--> 01:04:14

And when we are somewhere else we look back at the past to now and we think oh that was good.

01:04:17--> 01:04:20

And not only that we're always trying to be someone else as well.

01:04:21--> 01:04:29

A lot has made us who we are every one of us is unique in appearance and character. Every single one of us is unique.

01:04:32--> 01:04:34

In a way every one of us is special to our last panel.

01:04:38--> 01:04:49

Welcome Hello, insanity absented the queen. Verily we have created man in the most beautiful we have created insaan meaning the human in the most beautiful mountain.

01:04:54--> 01:04:54

One of the

01:04:57--> 01:04:59

core tears of the buses

01:05:02--> 01:05:03

Emperor

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

said, said

01:05:07--> 01:05:10

whilst looking at the moon,

01:05:13--> 01:05:15

saying that look how beautiful the moon is.

01:05:18--> 01:05:20

And then he mentioned the beauty of his wife.

01:05:24--> 01:05:24

And he said,

01:05:28--> 01:05:33

If I vow if my wife is not more beautiful than the moon, then I divorce.

01:05:36--> 01:05:37

Now he was in a conundrum.

01:05:40--> 01:05:56

went round asking, I'll just abbreviate the story. When found asking that many people said, Well, she's divorced, how can she be more beautiful than the moon? How can anyone be more beautiful than the one of the automa saved his marriage and his soul,

01:05:57--> 01:05:58

saved his wife and his life

01:06:00--> 01:06:08

and said, Allah says, lack of Harlequin insanity acid at the queen, verily we have created man in the most beautiful model.

01:06:10--> 01:06:15

There is nothing as beautiful as man. He, every one of us is beautiful.

01:06:17--> 01:06:24

And beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. But alas, puranam Lord, Allah has declared man noble, beautiful and honorable.

01:06:25--> 01:06:27

So who else is there to judge?

01:06:29--> 01:06:36

So every one of us is unique. Why are we always trying to be someone else because we are dissatisfied discontent with who we are

01:06:37--> 01:06:40

always trying to be someone else somewhere else.

01:06:41--> 01:06:43

This is part of contentment,

01:06:44--> 01:07:15

to be content with what a last panel what Allah has given us, not just in terms of provision, and our lot in life and wealth, but in everything, who we are what we are. If we are to strive, then we only look at those observers, in virtue, in character, in knowledge in piety when it comes to everything else. Look at those beneath us. As a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, This is more helpful in ensuring that you do not disregard or hold in contempt.

01:07:16--> 01:07:29

The blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala because that's what happens. If we're always looking at someone else. And thinking, I haven't got that. I don't have that. And we are holding in contempt what law has given us.

01:07:30--> 01:07:34

And there are many studies on this topic about ganatra. The

01:07:36--> 01:07:42

as far as wealth is concerned, we're never satisfied that famous Hadith about the relative are many Sahaba of the alarm.

01:07:44--> 01:08:00

By mom howdy from Abdullah VEDA, another Sahaba and all others who say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said If man had a value of gold, he would desire a second, if he had a second value of gold, he would desire a third, and it's never ending.

01:08:02--> 01:08:08

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, it nothing fills a cavity in man except the dust of the earth.

01:08:10--> 01:08:18

And you know, that is remarkable because as I've explained before, they say that the entire goal

01:08:19--> 01:08:33

ever excavated from Earth, in the history of mankind, in the entire history of mankind, the total amount of gold ever excavated, by any culture, by any civilization.

01:08:35--> 01:08:42

All the gold excavated in the entire history of mankind only amounts to a few

01:08:43--> 01:08:46

football fields or swimming pools.

01:08:47--> 01:08:48

Normal

01:08:49--> 01:08:55

and if you if you consider that, and then put this hadith into perspective.

01:08:58--> 01:09:14

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says If man not had one or two swimming pools, or one or two football fields, which his entire collective gold excavated in the history of mankind, if man had a whole valley full of gold, even that won't be enough for him, he'll want a second

01:09:16--> 01:09:22

and he was given a second he'd wanted. Why because he feasts with his eyes, and these eyes are never satisfied.

01:09:24--> 01:09:35

But if the heart is content them the heart is content. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know if we have what what we have if we are grateful, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah blesses it.

01:09:36--> 01:09:45

And he played by my ramblings Muslim Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, When Allah gives something, someone, Allah tests

01:09:47--> 01:09:50

so whatever Allah gives to someone who tests them,

01:09:51--> 01:09:59

if they are grateful, Allah Subhana Allah blesses that thing for them and expands it, but if they are ungrateful

01:10:01--> 01:10:04

The last panel without that does not bless it he restricts.

01:10:06--> 01:10:12

And there's again there's a very beautiful these by later by Manoir de la de la ma Muslim, Imam

01:10:13--> 01:10:14

Ali and others

01:10:15--> 01:10:30

from given his arm or the alarm, hacking under his arm or the alarm was a very elderly Sahabi. It said that he lived till the age of 120. And he embraced Islam at the age of 60. So 60 years is spent in jail he has 60 years in Islam.

01:10:32--> 01:10:46

So once he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he he asked the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam for wealth, the prophets of Allah it was Adam gave him he asked him a second time he gave him he asked him a third time, he gave

01:10:47--> 01:10:51

them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, yeah, Hakeem.

01:10:53--> 01:10:54

In how the man ha

01:10:58--> 01:11:07

ha with enough sing Boudicca goofy. Woman after the hobbit Sharaf, enough sin, Nam, Mubarak la houfy Kennedy Yeah, cool.

01:11:09--> 01:11:09

And yet the

01:11:13--> 01:11:24

prophets in the sutra, such beautiful words, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, after he had requested and asked for wealth three times, and he had given it to him. And he said to him, oh,

01:11:25--> 01:11:26

this wealth

01:11:28--> 01:11:31

is lush and green, and it's sweet.

01:11:34--> 01:11:36

So whoever takes this wealth,

01:11:39--> 01:11:44

with the generosity of the heart, and the meaning of the generosity of the heart here is

01:11:45--> 01:11:49

that he doesn't cover it. He doesn't want it.

01:11:50--> 01:12:23

But it comes to him without him wanting it, without him being greedy for it. That means the generosity of the heart. So when his heart is free from greed, avarice, and covetousness, then the heart of the giver will also be free, and will be generous. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, whether takes us well for the generosity of the heart, ie without no covetousness on his part, without no greed. Boudicca houfy, then this wealth is blessed for him.

01:12:25--> 01:12:29

But whoever takes this wealth with the covetousness of the hearts

01:12:31--> 01:12:38

with the greed and the avarice, and they're looking forward to it and the coveting of the heart, then the wealth is not blessed for him.

01:12:39--> 01:12:45

Just like that person killer the Goodwin is one who continues to eat but is never filled.

01:12:46--> 01:13:25

Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, the upper hand is far better than the lower hand, meaning the giving hand is far better than the taking. There are so many other hats and this hugging his arm or the alarm, and as I said a few weeks ago, the effects of the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on them was such that he was Hakeem Ebner his armor of the Allah and he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said to him, give me one. So he gave it to you when second time, so give me Well, he gave it to him. He went to the third time, give me well again and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, he advised him once with this, just one sentence,

01:13:25--> 01:13:41

just one sentence. What was the change and given the example of the Allah and when he heard these words, he said the law I will never take anything of any one again, till the day I die.

01:13:42--> 01:13:45

Then prophets, a lot of them passed away.

01:13:47--> 01:13:51

Since Hakeem when his armor of the law, one was an elderly Sahabi

01:13:52--> 01:13:54

when it came to distributing wealth,

01:13:55--> 01:13:57

and allocating

01:13:58--> 01:14:11

some wealth, a worker of your loved one called him and set him here. I gave him his arm of the law and refused to take his allocated share even from a worker of the law one as

01:14:13--> 01:14:18

a board worker of the alarm passed away barbital the alarm and called him

01:14:22--> 01:14:27

and he said, Here's your share, Hakeem and his arm or the alarm and refused to take it.

01:14:28--> 01:14:59

And what are the alarm? I offered it to him again, I refuse to take it. Then no matter the alarm and being unwell. He made an announcement and he said well, Shadow Kamiya national Muslim in the assembly of the Muslims, I make you witnesses that I have given Hakeem I have offered her give him his arm, his allocated share, but he refuses to take it. But I have done my duty. The narrator say till the day he died many many years after the law one after us, man. Love your life.

01:15:00--> 01:15:05

And after and it'll be a long run during the time we'll see you then Mr. Weir hold the alarm I'm

01:15:06--> 01:15:11

till the day he died. He never asked anyone for anything. He never took anything from anyone.

01:15:12--> 01:15:29

That was the effect of one sentence on him. Even though he had gone to the sword Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thrice love work. But imagine if we were to open up our hearts and minds to the words of the Noble Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how would they transform us?

01:15:30--> 01:15:33

We would be content. contentment

01:15:34--> 01:16:00

is one of the greatest teachings of religion. As I said earlier, two reasons. Ibrahim alayhis salaam told his son to divorce his wife, and to keep the other one was lack of respect, and lack of banana. And the other was respect and honor is to be content and to be satisfied with one's a lot in life. And to be grateful for all of that to our last panel.

01:16:01--> 01:16:08

I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala enables us to stand mere lawmakers amongst those who are grateful to him

01:16:11--> 01:16:12

and who are honored

01:16:15--> 01:16:21

and was successful for the mark of success is only three things and that had either Muslim from Abdullah.

01:16:22--> 01:16:25

But a flagman Islam was

01:16:28--> 01:16:31

indeed successful as he was embraced Islam

01:16:32--> 01:16:36

and who, who has been given in provisions officience.

01:16:37--> 01:16:41

And then Allah makes him content right? Yes.

01:16:42--> 01:16:51

We pray that Allah blesses us with these three qualities. If then we will be contempt We will be happy. And as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam appear to this habit of the alarm,

01:16:53--> 01:17:01

meaning content of soul and they said Yara sort of alarm you see you joyful and happy and content. And he said, Indeed, what are the health?

01:17:03--> 01:17:10

wealth is not a problem as long as it's coupled with DACA to health is far better than wealth,

01:17:11--> 01:17:21

and most importantly, the will massman and nerim. being joyful of the soul gleeful of the heart is one of the blessings of the last panel.

01:17:23--> 01:17:34

I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala enables us and Stan makers amongst those who are grateful and contempt, or some of the love was an American actor. He was a soldier in the Vietnam who had won early he was

01:17:35--> 01:17:36

apparently a lot more gambler.

01:17:38--> 01:17:40

He learned as the federal government over the lake.
