I relate with a continuous uninterrupted chain from me to the mama cinema. mahadi Rahim Allah says, Abdullah Mohammed relates to me that Abdullah Herzog related to us that Malmo informed us from a Ubisoft the Ernie and cathedra, McAfee, each of them adding
more than the other from so even the debate with Abdullah numbers are the Allahumma set. 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
Ethan forms is about the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis. Salaam visiting his son is smart, he really has sought
after his wife, her job, the alarm rang her had passed away. And he had gone to visits this morning
in order to inquire about his children about
battered child, his family and what he had left behind.
A quick summary. So far, this hadith is about the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam and his family.
The Hadith begins with
the journey of Ibrahim alayhis salaam with his wife Hodge or the Allah
and the infant child, it's not really his Salaam, from the
place of residence for the family to market omokoroa, which at that time was unknown. It was just a barren Valley, void of vegetation, void of water, void of any inhabitation
property right here, Ibrahim alayhis salaam deposited the mother and child is my job and even will sit down there 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 subhana wa Adana
pleading to the law to with certain prayers which have gone into in detail before Robin is going to read the book, these in the beta
teams, afraid that the minute nurse that we elected him or document
Verily, I have settled members of my family in a valley
without any vegetation, close to your sacred house. Oh our Lord. So
They may establish solid.
Therefore, cause the hearts of the people to flutter towards in love
and sustain them, provide for them
of fruits. Perhaps they may be grateful.
Little further prayers as well and then he brought him in he has returned to the ancient land of Palestine. There he remained with his other family and behind him on a hard drive or the Align her along with the sun. They survived for as long as they could on the single bag of dates and single skin of water. When the water expired, since the mother was settling the child, she depended on the water for the Millikan the date or when the watering dates have expired. She in her desperation began frantically searching for water, which led her to climb the two Hilux of suffer and middleware and caused her to run in between. When she completed the cycle seven times. She heard a sound that
was the angel, who then gave her glad tidings and then
cause the well of Zamzam spring for for her that running to and from the climbing of the two Hilux have suffered
a loss Pamela Dara
inaugurated it and consecrated it as a permanent right to be performed by all pilgrims to young
and that is the origin of the sappy setting between Safa and Marwa as part of legendary rock,
some some gush forth and then after that
the mother and child continue to survive just on the water sometime before
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, he grew up, he learns Arabic from them, and when he grew up, he married into them and married a woman from the tribe of Judah.
It was and then after a long time, the mother actually passed away
on a harddrive of the loved one has passed away at a very advanced stage according some narrations. She was 90 years old when she passed away.
Then Ibrahim alayhis salaam came to visits his son, the prophets is smart.
And this is where we left off last week. I'll just quickly repeat that last part again because
it's relevant to the new part that we are going to read so I'll have to join the two together.
For Jaya Ibrahim
back the matzo which is smart either utility or terracotta. So Ibrahim alayhis salam came
after is smart enough as salaam had married,
seeking out and inquiring of his
Phil is married, so he didn't find it smart for Santa Monica Huang. So he asked his wife about him for pilots. So she said 100, the ability learner he has gone out searching for us, meaning hunting for us.
So Ibrahim alayhis salam asked her
about their life, their livelihood, and their condition for God, she replied,
We are in great distress. Now if you leave him, or should we are in straitened circumstances and in difficulty severity for sugar in a so that she complained on he says,

So when your husband arrives,

For a magic smart

In How can you be lucky.

And he married another one from amongst meaning he married another lady from the same tribe of gentlemen because that that was the only tribe there.
And in essence he was an outsider.
Hema Masha Allah.
So Ibrahim alayhis salam remained away from them as long as I wish to to. So after that encounter, he never got to see his son.
But he only spoke to his wife. And then he returned.
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 angry Brahim Omar Sharma. After having returned Ibrahim alayhis salam stayed away from them meaning his family for as long as the lowish from him back. Then he came to them afterwards. phenom Yujin. So again, he didn't find his sentence marine for the other animal.
So he visited the house, he visited his wife for further harm. So he questioned her about him for barlet. How did you believe Elena, he has gone out searching for as meaning hunting for us on Ibrahim alayhis salam said,
How are you? What's the other half a chicken? Well, he said to him, and he questioned her about their life and their condition for harlots. So she replied, with Hayden, what Sir, we are in great good

I even had? And in those days, they didn't have grains. What organic there are other houfy and had the grains. Ibrahim alayhis salam would have prayed for the blessing of grains to for them on Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
For whom Allah ya que la Hema Mira Makka

Did anyone come to you, Miriam? She said yes. A Donna Sheehan.
An elderly gentleman, an elderly man came to his house and

And he questioned me about you so I informed him for 70 and he asked me deviation or how is our life, but it will never fade.

Part of that key fob he said this is my father won the lottery, and you are the threshold amount of money and secondly, he has commanded me to retain you
from a libertarian who Masha Allah, then he remained away from them for as long as a law wished. So he went back. And again, he didn't meet his son on the second occasion.
The next part of the Hadeeth is actually the final part, which deals with the final visits of Brahim.
We'll arrive at that later on.
But Allow me to explain
this section here about the two visits of ismart eagerly hit him at a this alarm
when he didn't actually get to see his son.
But even in the absence of his son
without meeting him,
Ibrahim alayhis salaam ensured
that he took care of the household needs and the social, religious and personal welfare of his son,
even though he didn't get to see.
And having done that he returned
on the first occasion,
as he says he arrived.
He didn't find his son smart at least.
So he visited the house. And he inquired of the wife of a smart eagerly his son and he had not met before. So he was never present in the marriage in his son's marriage.
And he asked her ways, he so she said that he's gone out hunting for us.
So he asked her, how is life How are you? How is life at home? What's your livelihood like? And she began complaining.
She complained to him in many ways.
And then what should
enough if you lean in, we should.
But we are in severity. We are in straitened circumstances. We are in dire straits. We are in difficulty.
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.
But she never received him. Well. She didn't entertain him. She never offered any food.
She wasn't hospitable.
did not take care of any need. She did not inquire of his needs or welfare.
And ignoring Ibrahim alayhis salaam, her focus was on herself and on them as a family. We are in great difficulty we are in severity, we are in dire straits.
She never mistreated him. But at the same time, she didn't treat him well. You
told her convey my greetings to my daughter too. He never said I'm his father. So convey my greetings to your husband
and tell him to change the threshold of his door, the doorstep.
When he ran, he might be smart enough to his salon came back. He brought him a salon explained it. His wife explained everything to him.
He understood immediately In fact, when he entered an associate, it was as though he's he felt something. The sun being a prophet of Allah felt the presence of His Holy Father.
The Prophet of Allah is not as fragrance as mentioned in one narration.
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 division.
She described the father to the husband,
as in a very derogatory disparaging manner, saying, oh, he was like this. He was like that.
When she told him that, he said, change the door of your doorstep, the threshold of your door, smile, Elisa Lam 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.
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 salam never came to marry his son, he came to divorce us.
Meaning he he did not come to get his son married. He came to get his son divorced.
And I explained in detail last week, why?
Because apartment in life is supposed to be someone who aids you someone who assists you.
Someone who is a boon, not a burden.
Someone who's an impetus, not an agent, not a hindrance.
Someone who is who carries his or her weight and helps you carry your wings, rather than becoming a burden
that's a true span. A man or woman, husband or wife.
In the US Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,
and moderation after taqwa.
Allah has not given any man any better gift
than a woman and a wife.
Who when he looks at her, she pleases.
When he gives her instructions, she obeys him.
And when he is absent from her, she guards her chastity just as a last.
So after he Ma'am, after taqwa, one of the greatest gifts, anyone can have man or woman
is to have a spouse or husband or wife, who when they look at them, please them
who when they bid them,
enjoying their command.
And when they are absent from
our faithful God their chastity and continue to fulfill the law of Allah in their presence or in their absence.
And a laugh a bit
if the opposite is true.
despite faith despite the law, if someone is burdened with
spouse, then that can be a true test and trial from the last panel.
They can still be passed a lot of hammer Hall without our tests servants, a lot tested the MBR and even stood out was salon through their spouses. He tested mohalla his salon through his wife, he tested loot la salon through his wife, he tested
us alsea, the wife of Freetown through her husband,
and all of them are shining examples.
Ibrahim alayhis salam felt that his son was to become a leader of his people. He was to carry the message of Allah who was to lead the people.
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.
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 prophetic household. So Ibrahim alayhis salam, O Allah subhanho, wa Taala, being a messenger of Allah,
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.
And after that he left so he came not to get his son married, but he came to get some divorce.
When his son are married, another woman from the same tribe of gentlemen,
Ibrahim Alayhi, Salam had the exact same encounter with that family. On his second visit, he remained absent for as long as Allah wished him to remain to remain away. And then when he came to Makkah, all the way from canal, he came to the house of Allah. He wasn't there. So inquired
the wording of the heavy 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 has gone out hunting.
So he brought him in, he took the opportunity to question her just as the question the previous wife.
she said, in Adelaide in Lhasa,
Praise be to Allah, we are in great good blessing, provision and ease.
And she praised Allah subhanho wa Taala. grateful to him being thankful to him.
Then he asked her something which
he never asked the previous one.
But it's also mentioned in another iteration of Buhari itself that she offered
to be hospitable. She said she offered hospitality and grace and said, Why don't you
come eat with us to send
visitors eat with us?
She offered great she showed great hospitality. He then asked her from our own welcome What is your food?
So she said means
then he has his head for Mashallah. Welcome. So what is your drink? She said a man water. So Ibrahim alayhis salaam pray to Allah Lama body club.
Philately will map and in another generation of Buhari Allahumma barik Levin futami masabi Allah bless them in the means and in the water of Allah bless them in their food and in their drink.
And again, in another hand eatable hearty the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Baraka to modality Ibrahim alayhis salam that there is blessing in the food of the Arabs because of the drought of Ibrahim Elise.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also explaining
that no one subsists
no one survives exclusively on meat and water
anywhere apart from the people
Let us accept that this meat and water exclusively do not agree with them.
Allow me to explain this. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also added that in those days that the very early days of the settlement of Mecca during the time of his marriage, he learned his Salam O yes. Before I continue, I just like to
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, Salam 2000 years ago.
And that was a slip of the tongue.
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.
So, at the time of its release,
the province of the sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said they never had grain.
If they had grain, then Ibrahim Alayhi Salam would have prayed for the blessing of grains to for the people of Mecca. All that simply means that muckety muck around as we know, being a barren Valley, even now, as it was then
was it there was no vegetation.
There wasn't a drop of water, a blade of grass, no vegetation, the only water that appeared was a 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 Mugu 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
which dried up afterwards,
were actually running rivers. At the time of the prophets in the law, it was
so Medina was always very fertile. It was a very fertile oasis. And there was great agriculture there not just
dates, but other properties too. But muckety muck aroma wasn't an agricultural region. So their nomadic lifestyle
was exclusively one their food was mainly just meat, hunted, eat just as much as they would go out to hunt. So hunted meat and and domesticated meat, and what
and in one narration, milk and the milk would be from the animals. So
because there was no grain the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not pray for grain for
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
there is no one anywhere.
Apart from Makoto Corona,
apart from the people of Makkah, who can subsist and survive exclusively on meat and water, except for the people
and that's very true.
the true Arabs, from the,
from the family of Ebrahim alayhis salam from the family of Ismail eagerly his Salaam, they, their consumption of meat.
Excessive though may be and at times exclusive and that they won't have anything else but meantime water. prophets Allahu alayhi wa sallam says this doesn't agree with anyone in can't agree with anyone, except for these people.
In fact, a few years ago, we had an invitation at great scholars house and look at them.
And while at the invitation, there was meat galore.
there were a number of non Arabs present
including us, and we were only able to have so much but they informed us that the Arabs the mean the true Arabs have meet all the time.
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 to modality Ibrahim alayhis salam. This is a Baraka and the blessing of the Himalayas.
Allah bless them in the food and drink.
So having had this conversation, Ibrahim alayhis, salaam, prayed. And then he told her that when your husband returns, convey my salon 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 him. And he also added for him the hustle Solomon's
for its meaning the threshold IE her, she is the goodness of your house in another generation.
Now see the contrast between
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.
And his only encounter his only conversation was at the doorstep except with the second one who did offer hospitality.
And what was the difference?
The first one wasn't hospitable. The second one was offered food and drink.
The first one, and this was the major factor. She complained.
she was ungrateful.
The second one was grateful. She didn't complain. She didn't moan. She praised the last panel.
Even though the condition of his Marina his ceram and his household was exactly the same on both occasions.
There was no difference.
Yet for the same livelihood, one monk groaned and complained and wasn't grateful.
And the other for exactly the same condition and lifestyle and livelihood praise that last panel
and was grateful to Allah and was content and felt sufficed.
And that Ibrahim alayhis salam said,
and because she showed respect,
Ibrahim alayhis salam said divorce one, keep the other.
one or two lessons from that one is gonna.
The other is respect.
Must be about respect first.
Respect is an integral,
innate inherent part of Islam.
So much about Islam is to do with respect. It's part of our religion. It's part of our ethics as part of our culture. It's part of our value system.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, He who does not respect our elders,
and showed he does not show mercy and compassion to our younger ones, then he is not office.
Respecting those who are senior to us in age in authority in position in family
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.
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 younger siblings will respect their older siblings
any seniority deserves respect.
And unfortunately, this is something which we are rapidly lose
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.
A person has intervals
they ought to be respected
despite one's disagreements with on
They are to be respected. The elders arbitrary respected. The father in law is like a father figure. The mother in law is like a motherfucker.
They are not outlaws,
their in laws.
Ibrahim Alayhi Salam instructed his son to divorce his wife,
because she failed to respect him as he should have been respected,
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.
And that was a character and befitting a wife of the profitable.
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, a last panel with Anna in the Holy Quran What is he saying?
that, shall it Allah, what a shovel haram or what have you what Allah
do not consider lawful IE consider her arm mean sacred.
One of the meanings of her arm is the ends the name of hava, which is
unlawful. But the whole idea of being unlawfully is that it's forbidden. Forbidden, meaning it's, it's to be kept away from.
It's to be revered, it's sacred.
It shouldn't be touched.
That's why we say to them how long
so one of the meanings of Haram is not just impure or filthy, or not good. He actually means sacred, unlawful, forbidden, prohibited.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, do not consider Hallo meaning, do not consider
this to be not sacred, rather consider sacred Are you worthy of reverence. So what then does the last panel who would that helps
that consider this to be worthy of reverence?
Not just respect, but reverence. sha Allah, the symbols of Allah.
And what are some of the symbols of Allah many but one of the symbols of Allah mentioned in the Quran, in the software will motivate them in Sha in. Verily the hillocks have suffered miroir of the symbols of Allah. So to inanimate silent jacket pieces of rock up some of the symbols of Allah subhanho wa Taala, but are worthy of reverence. Allah continues,
while a shout out
and do not consider lawful IE revere the sacred month, then one
and nor the sacrificial animals
the Arabs would take with
sacrificial animals, camels, calves, to be slaughtered.
So they would drive them and travel with them from their hometowns and cities, all the way to Makoto Corona in order to slaughter them in the vicinity of Mk. And sacrifice them for the sake of Allah. These driven animals to the sanctuary of Allah for sacrifice, were known as head
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.
So they would mark them with gardens, 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,
and sometimes even old sandals.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam garland did his sacrificial animals shovel the love garden did his sacrificial animals. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says we'll do what Allah would have shadowed her on a night of the sacred month
and neither the sacred
Official animals all the God. So according to this verse of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Even the sandals that are hung around sacrificial animals as Garland's, marking them for sacrifice are to be revealed and respect.
sandals, Garland's of dry leaves,
in animates jagged pieces of rock. These are all parts of the symbols of our last panel.
If even these are to be respected and revered because of their connection, and then Mr. To the last panel with data and the house of Allah, then what are things such as the holy war and the Golan the speech of Allah, these are sort of law so the law of
religion, religious symbols,
knowledge, people of religion, people have knowledge. Everything is about respect.
And not just people of knowledge, one's parents, one seniors, older people,
respecting one's father, one's mother.
The Arabs even before Islam had this culture of respect. We learned that the Prophet salallahu it who was sending
his grandfather Abdullah,
a noble leader of Quraysh. He had so many sons.
People like Abu lahab
Hamza, the warrior, later
the hunter warrior, but his son's
numerous, every one of them a spectacle in himself. And yet
Abu Talib 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 semi circle, respect for me, 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.
But when they will try to shoo away the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a young child, and didn't know 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.
But the moral of the story is even in the days of Jay Z, the Arabs have great respect for their parents. So much so
that Abdullah did not obey the rule the leader of the hypocrites and Medina when he wants spoke disparagingly of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam referred to him sort of them one after all,
in Regina in Medina, regional asmin.
His Son, who's also called Abdullah, so the full name was Abdullah Abdullah hypnobabies saloon that Abdullah the son of Abdullah, he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said to him, oh prophet of Allah.
The horn of Medina knows that there is no sun more beautiful to his father than I am to my father.
And then the story continues, but we don't have time to go into the evening. Makoto macabre. When
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, that 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,
do we respect our parents, as even the pagans respected their pagan parents then?
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
to respect one's father in law, one's mother in law
For both husband and wife is important.
We may have their disagreements with, but one needs to respect.
So this is another topic in itself. But that's one lesson to be learned from this episode. Ibrahim alayhis salam, because of the lack of respect parts, partly because of the lack of respect of one wife told him his son divorce.
And because of the others respect, and deference, he said, Keep partly, the other partial reason was Banana.
Banana is a term in Arabic, which means it's very difficult to translate into a single word that means to suffice with one's lot in life, and not only to survive, but to be content with it.
To be content with what we have,

Without a lot in life, we've got pressure provisions we have, and to be grateful to our last panel. That's the meaning of banana. And so it's a very important part of Islam.
Very important part. I'm delighted I'm going to be married. So it'll be Allahumma relates and had these recorded by Muslim history, prophets, Allah Almighty, who seldom says, aflam and what was it a

moaning, groaning incessantly complaining, this is a nasty habit. It eats away at a person, it destroys one's peace of mind. In fact, being happy is a gift of Allah Subhana Allah Himself.
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.
And he came out looking very peaceful and joyful,
joyful content. So this How about the alarm rang? Who said to him Nakata, you've been knifes that will messenger of Allah, we see you gleeful of heart, joyful of soul.
So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, urgent indeed.
Then, so how about the law? Having said that to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they began discussing wealth, riches and wealth.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, law that said, we live in a limited takala there is no harm in wealth for one who is wary of a law.
So if a person has taqwa,
then riches will not harm him. Wealth won't harm him.
But it has to it has to be coupled with the law. So he said about Solomon law that sybilla Zina eliminate Allah, there is no harm in wealth.
For one who is wary of Allah,
then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
but even better than wealth, health is far better for one who has done well.
So health is far better and more important than wealth, even in the words of the messengers will allow it.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, well, plebe will never see me in a name. That the joyfulness and the glory fullness of the heart of the soul. This is one of the gifts and the blessings of
just be joyful,
to be gleeful,
to be contempt, to be happy,
to be satisfied. This in itself is a blessing of a last panel. Unless we think that
we love to count our misfortunes. We love to enumerate our calamities. We love to point out what we don't have.
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
in these leads

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says
it's a very beautiful idea. I relate to the continuous chain from me till him and Buhari who says, had the nice smart mnemonic come and be Xena the annual average and a be graded or the Allahu I'm assuming that it was a llama con is another
11 foot para la family will help for younger Iranian who has fallen.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, 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 LA family 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.
Then for them
Or Elon and whoever asked for them in the lesson look at one who is below him.

and in another how these relate again from a warrior how the law firm records Batman Muslim in history, pursuit Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,
Latin zero 11
Latin zero 11
in total 11 s flamenco, what are the Roman folk? For what
is the robinia Matilda la Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Look at those who are beneath you.
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 are not looking at those who are beneath looking at those who are beneath you are not looking at those who are above you for what Allah says there will be no,
this is far more worthy and deserving. And leading to the fact that you will not degrade, you will not degrade or holding content allows blessings on.
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.
And as human beings we are never content.
If we are here, we want to jump there when we are there. We want to leave here.
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
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 on a grow up. 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 settle 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.
And he drew a long line intersecting the box stretching from before and way beyond.
And then he drew small lines across the outer board.
All of this in the sound and then told us he told us how about the Align
the center line. These are man's hopes, dreams and aspirations. And they go they stretch.
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 him to 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.
But his aspirations will remain unfulfilled beyond the measure of Islam.
So our hopes, our dreams, our aspirations, our goals are there.
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.
So in other words,
we are never happy with what we have now and where we are.
We're always looking somewhere else. We're here now.
And we want to be somewhere else because we think being somewhere else is going to be happening.
And when we are somewhere else, we look back at the past to now and we think oh that was good.
And not only that, we're always trying to be someone else as well.
Allah has made us who we are. Every one of us is unique in appearance and character. Every single one of us is unique.
In a way every one of us is special to our last panel.
Have you accepted the queen? Verily we have created man in the most beautiful, we have created in some meaning that even in the most beautiful model,
one of the
core tears of the bastard
whilst looking at the moon,
saying that, look how beautiful the moon is.
And then he mentioned the beauty of his wife.
And he said,
If I vow that if my wife is not more beautiful than the moon, then I divorce her.
Now he was in a conundrum.
went round asking, I'll just abbreviate the story went round asking that many people said, Well, she's divorced, how can she be more beautiful than the moon? How can anyone be more beautiful women, one of the orlimar saved his marriage and his soul,
saved his wife and his life.
And said, Allah sees that will happen inside of us and at the queen. Verily we have created man in the most beautiful model
is nothing as beautiful as man. Him, every one of us is beautiful.
And beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. But alas, panelboard Allah has declared man noble, beautiful and honorable.
So who else is that?
Every one of us is unique. Why are we always trying to be someone else because we are dissatisfied discontent with who we are
always trying to be someone else somewhere else.
This is part of contentment.
To be content with what Allah Subhana 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.
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.
And there are many Hadith on this topic about ganatra. The
as far as wealth is concerned, we're never satisfied that famous Hadith about the rated by many Sahaba of the law
by mahadi, from Abdullah VEDA and other 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 you had a second value of gold, who would desire a third, and it's never ending.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, it nothing fills a cavity in man except the dust of the earth.
And you know, that is remarkable because as I've explained before, they say that the entire goal
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.
All the gold excavated in the entire history of mankind only amounts to a few
football fields or swimming pools.
And if you if you consider that and then put this into perspective.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says a man not had one or two swimming pools or one or two football fields, which has 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
and he was given a second he'd want a third. Why? Because he feasts with his eyes and these eyes are never satisfied.
But if the heart is contentment, the heart is content. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know if we have what what we
What if we are grateful? Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah blesses it.
And he played by my humble ends Muslim Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, When Allah gives something, someone a lot tests
so whatever Allah gives to someone, he tests them.
If they are grateful, a loss of hammer who blesses that thing for them and expands it, but if they are ungrateful,
then Allah Subhana Allah does not bless it, he restricts.
And there's again there's a very beautiful it is by letter by moi de la la ma Muslim
Kalani and others
from give him his arm or the alarm. I gave him the example of your loved one 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 and Jay Z 60 years in Islam.
So once he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for wealth. The prophets of the law it was Adam gave him he asked him a second time he gave him he asked him a third time, he gave
them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, yeah Hakeem.
In her the amount of Hadith
from an author that will be Sahaba enough, sing Buddha, kala goofy woman after the hobbit shut off enough sin, num, yo Baraka, houfy Kennedy, yeah, call
him in and get this
property, the such beautiful words, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, after he had requested and asked for wealth three times, and you've given it to him, and he said to him, oh,
is lush and green, and it's sweet.
So whoever takes this wealth,
with the generosity of the heart, and the meaning of the generosity of the heart here is
that he doesn't cut it. He doesn't want it.
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.
But whoever takes this wealth, with the covetousness of the hearts
with the greed and the avarice and looking forward to it and the coveting of the heart, then the wealth is not blessed for him.
Just like that person killer, the Goodwin is back, who continues to eat but he's never failed.
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 hands and this hugging his arm or the alarm, and as I said, a few weeks ago, the facts of the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam unknown was such that he was Hakeem Ebner his arm or the Allahu, and he went to the province of the law, it was him and said to him, give me one. So he gave it to you went 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 wasallam said to him, he advised him once with this just one sentence,
just one sentence. What was the change and given his arm of the law, and when he heard these words, he said the art of sort of law, I will never take anything of anyone again, till the day I die.
Then profits A lot of it has an impact passed away.
Since Hakeem when his Amaro de la Huang was an elderly Sahabi
when it came to distributing wealth,
a worker of the alarm and called him and set him here. I gave him his arm of the law and refused to take his allocated share, even from abubaker the loved one as
a worker, the alarm passed away. Barbara the law firm called him
and he said, Here's your share, Hakeem in his armor, the alarm with us to take it
out of the love and offered it to him again.
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 hugging him in his arm is allocated share, but he refuses to take it for I have done my job at the NRA to say till the day he died many many years after the alarm and after the alarm after any it'll be alarm during the time I'll see you then Mr. Weir hold the alarm.
Till the day he died. He never asked anyone for anything. He never took anything from anyone.
That was the effect of one sentence on him, even though he had gone to the sword Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thrice Lovelock 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?
We would be content. contentment
is one of the greatest teachings of religion as I said earlier, two reasons. Ibrahim alayhis salam 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 and canera his 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.
I pray that Allah Allah enables us to stand me lawmakers amongst those who are grateful to him
and who are on air
and who are successful for the mark of success is only three things and that had either Muslim from Abdullah Ramadan last but flagmen Aslam while Rosa Kaka la Mata, indeed successful is He who has embraced Islam
and who has been given in provisions officience.
And then alarm makes him content right? Yes.
We pray that Allah blesses us with these three qualities. If then we will be content we will be happy. And as the prophets of the love it was similar here to this habit of the Allah. But you've been mefs meaning content of soul. And they said Jada sort of Yasuda Let me see you joyful and happy and content. He said indeed. And what did he tell?
wealth is not a problem as long as it's coupled with that law to health is far better than wealth.
And most importantly, are people massman and neram. being joyful of the soul gleeful of the heart is one of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala enables us and standard makers amongst those who are grateful and contempt or some of the love was an American actor. He was a soldier in the Vietnam era and he was sadly the age marine.
