in humidity concern leader, Ibrahim

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

Ibrahim, Majeed Allahu

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

ala Muhammad,

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

Ibrahim, Allah Allah.

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

He

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

spoke to listeners sulamani Miranda my

00:01:18--> 00:01:25

last round of essays in the article will be your anthem Sha it'll live in hand.

00:01:29--> 00:01:34

And whosoever Venerable venerates the symbols of Allah,

00:01:36--> 00:01:37

then this is

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

of the dupois of the heart.

00:01:44--> 00:01:52

What this first tells us, this verse is actually in the context of revealing respecting

00:01:54--> 00:01:58

and venerating the symbols of a loss,

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

especially in relation to

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

the rites and rituals of

00:02:06--> 00:02:07

since this verse

00:02:08--> 00:02:09

is from sort of.

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

So the verse tells us,

00:02:16--> 00:02:24

that whoever respects and reveres, in fact, venerates, the symbols of a Lost Planet or

00:02:25--> 00:02:47

the then this is this veneration, this respect arises and stems from the purity and piety and dupois of their hearts. It's not stupidity, it's not silliness. It's not foolish civility.

00:02:49--> 00:03:04

It's not backwardness. Rather, the veneration and respect and reverence of the symbols of a last panel with honor stems from the purity and piety and duck wildhearts. That's the last testimony.

00:03:07--> 00:03:10

And indeed, respect

00:03:11--> 00:03:16

is a fundamental teaching of Islam.

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

And the last person who has taught us

00:03:21--> 00:03:23

has instructed us,

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

to show respect,

00:03:29--> 00:03:41

be calm and acted on and Tao even though P is all Arabic words which denotes these meetings, Allah has instructed us to respect

00:03:42--> 00:03:42

and to honor

00:03:44--> 00:03:50

not just Allaha xojo himself, the creator, but also creation in many different ways.

00:03:52--> 00:03:56

When it comes to a last crown, with Allah, we have been instructed to

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

respect to reveal and not just align himself.

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

But all of those things that are connected with loss.

00:04:10--> 00:04:17

It could be anything, the people of Allah, the prophets of the Friends of the books have

00:04:19--> 00:04:36

the symbols of the law, and that's why the verse says, The symbols of Allah and the symbol of Allah, a symbol of allies, anything through which Allah has recognized law has known that last panel with Anna has chosen to make a mark for himself. It could be a person,

00:04:38--> 00:04:47

in fact, like a prophet, or a person senior of authority and knowledge and piety and religion, or it could even be

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

a normal non human being and non living thing.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

And that's what the verse is actually about. It's from sort of the the hedge

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

And

00:05:03--> 00:05:17

in the context of Hajj and Umrah and pilgrimage, the rites and rituals of Islam are many. And if you look at all of the things that are respected and revered, in the context of pilgrimage,

00:05:18--> 00:05:22

then indeed all of these things are inanimate objects.

00:05:23--> 00:05:33

We aren't even living beings, but because of their connection with Allah Subhana horadada. One is under a religious obligation to venerate.

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

For instance, the garba just the building

00:05:39--> 00:05:43

is with the Blackstone in the corner of the gather

00:05:48--> 00:05:49

the well of Zamzam.

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

The Hilux of Safa and Marwa

00:05:53--> 00:05:57

largely seasoned sort of bacara in a sofa one bar with dementia is

00:05:58--> 00:06:22

that indeed the indeed suffer and miroir are both of the symbols of a law and that's why they form such an integral part of our memory and our Heche. So, the Hilux of Safa, Marwah, the well of Zamzam and hedging is with the Blackstone in the corner of the Gabba Gabba itself,

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

the direction of dibbler

00:06:27--> 00:06:46

all of these things are nonliving things and yet we are to venerate them we are to revere them we are to respect them, and respect all of these even the direction of dibbler. We've been commanded in the Hadees not to spit in the direction of the lust and the love it was seldom

00:06:47--> 00:06:55

cautions against spitting in the direction of the gambler when it comes to relieving ourselves and answering the call of nature.

00:06:58--> 00:07:20

Again, we have been instructed not to turn not to face the dribbler or even to turn our backs to the bubbler when answering the call of nature. All of this is to respect the direction of liberal thinking that it's just the direction and it faces the caravan. The caravan is just a cube building.

00:07:22--> 00:08:01

And the 100 of us with the black stone in the garbage. It's just a stone, just as a lot of the alarm. He before he did still on the greeting of the sweat. He stood over it and facing the unhedged on us when he addressed it saying, Oh stone, I know that you are nothing but system, you cannot benefit or harm anyone. And if it wasn't for the fact that was suitable loss on the law, it was seldom kissed you, I would not kiss you. And then having said that a lot of the alarm fell on the stone and smothered it with kisses.

00:08:02--> 00:08:07

So indeed, it's just a stone, but because of his connection with Allah.

00:08:09--> 00:08:27

It deserves to be revered, respected and venerate. And whoever venerates any of these things, it's better for them. It stems from the taqwa of the halls, and respect ultimately, does not diminish a person.

00:08:29--> 00:08:42

We should never think that by respecting them or the individual, by showing them respect, I diminish myself, I reduce myself, I lower myself. In fact,

00:08:43--> 00:09:08

anyone who respects another, enhance a mind, or even by a practical demonstration of that respect in person. This act of respect and reverence does not diminish the individual, in the least, if anything, it raises them, it honors them, it elevates them

00:09:10--> 00:09:14

in the eyes of the pious, and with the last panel with Allah Himself.

00:09:16--> 00:09:24

And that's why law again, in sort of hedge prior to this verse, ease, or mean your other than photomath in there he for who hated law,

00:09:25--> 00:09:43

and whoever venerates the prohibitions of a law. In fact, the word prohibitions may not be the best translation here, whoever venerates the sanctities of Allah for a lower entropy than this is far better for him with his law.

00:09:45--> 00:09:49

So last time, the reason something is how long

00:09:50--> 00:09:56

and forbidden originally the word how long simplement sacred that's what we have an image to the

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

sacred house.

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

And the reason the word prohibition becomes connected with the word haram or the word haram means forbidden and prohibited is that traditionally, any area which was marked off by a boundary, and entry into that area was forbidden, because that area belonged exclusively to the Emperor the ruler, the king,

00:10:24--> 00:10:35

or the lead, then since that was forbidden territory, it was considered sacred, inviolable, this is why we have the term forbidden as meaning.

00:10:36--> 00:11:24

So if Allah subhanho wa Taala, has sets limits, then these are the limits that are set by Allah. There may be to do with prohibition of sins, but the limits on the boundaries are sacred. And sort of last parameter Allah sees me your oven problema de la he for hate or love or in rugby, and whoever venerates the st. t's of Allah, this is far better for him with his law. So whether it's to do with prohibition, but in this context, venerating, respecting and revering the symbols of lust panelboards is far better for that respecting individual with a loss of respect does not diminishes, it enhances, it helps us grow, it makes us better.

00:11:26--> 00:11:40

So respect is a fundamental and integral teaching of religion, we should try our utmost to instill it in ourselves, as well as in our children. We want children to respect us.

00:11:42--> 00:11:45

But children learn from not just education, but example.

00:11:47--> 00:11:49

And how calipers

00:11:50--> 00:11:59

expect or demand respect from his or her children. When that individual lacks respect themselves.

00:12:01--> 00:12:07

We think that the only respect anyone should have is children for their parents.

00:12:09--> 00:12:17

But no last panel data has made respect and obligation on everyone,

00:12:18--> 00:12:25

for different people for different things in different circumstances. Someone who fails to respect

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

others,

00:12:28--> 00:12:33

himself, cannot expect or should not expect,

00:12:34--> 00:12:38

let alone demand that others respect him or her.

00:12:40--> 00:12:41

In fact, there's a very

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

famous story of one individual.

00:12:46--> 00:12:54

Well, it's not very famous, but it's a story from one of the classical earlier man. He was, he was quite learned.

00:12:55--> 00:12:56

He had a terrible,

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

terrible manners.

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

And he would always speak ill of people.

00:13:03--> 00:13:06

But he was quite learned he was intelligent and was quite low.

00:13:07--> 00:13:11

So one scholar went to study with him, study a book with him.

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

And every now and then, whenever the name of a scholar came along, he'd

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

abused the Scot.

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

So he even attacked him and Monica.

00:13:26--> 00:13:29

He attacked many of the famous or Aloma

00:13:31--> 00:13:42

eventually, this person who was reading the book from him, spoke up harshly against him. This was after quite some time of listening to his denigration of other Roma.

00:13:43--> 00:13:50

And then eventually, when it became too much, he spoke up and he scolded this person.

00:13:51--> 00:14:00

And that individual became extremely angry. And he shouted back in just a second, how dare you do not realize why am I am such and such a person.

00:14:02--> 00:14:08

People and then he said, and you come along, and you speak to me in this manner.

00:14:11--> 00:14:27

So, he said, Deena, this is the result. This is the result of your denigration and your disparaging of that will amount of this. And then you said to him, when you respect the Imams, we shall respect you.

00:14:29--> 00:14:41

When you respect that your moms we will respect you. So someone who lacks respect for others cannot expect let alone demand respect from anyone else.

00:14:42--> 00:14:51

Children should indeed respect their parents and we should instill that in them. But this respect does not come for free.

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

Parents should act and behave in a way which instills respect in their child.

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

Audran not just by their words, but also by their deeds and their example so that the children learn from their

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

Harun Rashid,

00:15:13--> 00:15:16

Harun Rashid, the famous urbansitter Emperor.

00:15:22--> 00:15:29

He was the emperor of the bastard Empire at Zenith, at the peak of its power,

00:15:31--> 00:15:32

powerful

00:15:35--> 00:15:36

renown across the world.

00:15:40--> 00:15:44

He actually sent one of his sons, to Imam, a smart Iraq with the law

00:15:47--> 00:15:48

so that your mom could teach

00:15:50--> 00:15:51

and nurture.

00:15:54--> 00:15:55

And this was the prince

00:15:57--> 00:16:01

the prince of the time of the ambassade Empire.

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

So one day,

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

the Khalif Harun Rashid, he visited Imam Azmi. Once his son was with Mr. Smith, Mr. Healy,

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

studying with him.

00:16:22--> 00:16:25

When he approached us, were you looking to learn he was doing well?

00:16:28--> 00:16:36

And how long he Rasheed son the prince of the bastard Empire was pouring water on the feet of enormous Mary

00:16:37--> 00:16:43

whilst he was washing his feet with his hands, but the prince the son of Harvey Rashid was pouring the water.

00:16:47--> 00:16:49

So how Rasheed got upset.

00:16:51--> 00:16:53

Why do you think he got upset?

00:16:55--> 00:17:06

Why mote we may assume that many parents especially someone of that position, would get upset that he's the cleave of the bastard Empire at the peak and the Zenit

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

have its power.

00:17:13--> 00:17:19

He wants stared at a cloud. And in very poetic Arabic, he said, Oh, cloud,

00:17:20--> 00:17:32

rain or don't Rain, rain, hail or rain elsewhere, it doesn't matter, for ultimately, the tax of the produce of your rainfall will come back to me.

00:17:33--> 00:17:41

That's how vast the ambassade Empire was, and how long the famous 1001 nights

00:17:42--> 00:17:50

are all based on the bastard Empire and the royal court at the time of her owner Rashid was a splendid Empire.

00:17:52--> 00:18:16

Now, however, she became upset, why do you think he became upset? We may assume because like any other parents like any other father, he sees his son, the prince of the bastard empire in a very survival manner, pouring water over the feet of some skull. Awesome teacher.

00:18:18--> 00:18:31

No law. This was the emperor of the time, Harun Rashid became upset and he said to him, I was smitten with the law he really, he said, I sent my son to you, so that you could teach him

00:18:32--> 00:18:43

and knowledge, manners and respect. Why is he only pouring water whilst you are washing your feet, he should be pouring water with one hand and washing your foot with the other.

00:18:45--> 00:18:46

That was Harun Rashid.

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

Parents should instill respect in their children,

00:18:53--> 00:18:55

by word as well as deed.

00:18:57--> 00:18:59

When a father respects his father,

00:19:00--> 00:19:02

when a father respects his parents,

00:19:03--> 00:19:06

then children, even without

00:19:08--> 00:19:14

a word of education, by mere example, will follow in their parents footsteps and

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

respect them, treat them well.

00:19:20--> 00:19:52

But the concept of respect in Islam is not limited to children from the respect of children, for parents, we all have to respect we have to respect the last panel with that. The symbols of Allah, the religion of Allah, the people connected to Allah, the things connected to Allah, and then of creation, we have to respect those who are senior to us, senior in authority senior in position senior in age, senior in knowledge, senior in piety.

00:19:54--> 00:19:56

Our language should reflect that

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

and our bas have not done for them.

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

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his own uncle. This was the father of his brother.

00:20:07--> 00:20:10

So this was the brother of the prophets in the love it was thought

00:20:12--> 00:20:13

he was his uncle.

00:20:14--> 00:20:19

And yet he embraced Islam and followed in his father in his nephew's footsteps.

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

After the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:20:26--> 00:20:29

we may have been during the time someone asked him

00:20:33--> 00:20:34

in Arabic,

00:20:37--> 00:20:38

to say older

00:20:40--> 00:20:45

the word is a cover. There are other words, but one of the words is

00:20:46--> 00:21:30

actually doesn't mean old. It means as children would say, bigger, when children the very, very early stages are normally don't say older. They say I'm bigger than him, meaning I'm older. So it means the word about means bigger, and more refined language greater the ideas whose Are you greater or him meaning Are you greater in age or him? That's a word in Arabic alphabet. So a sin. So someone asked that about the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, who's great, not old, meaning who's greater IE who's greater in age because that's the language of Arabic.

00:21:32--> 00:21:42

and above, some of them, being the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could have easily said, I am but the language

00:21:43--> 00:21:44

and I bounced

00:21:45--> 00:21:47

out of the alarm said,

00:21:48--> 00:21:52

he is greater than me. But I was born before him.

00:21:54--> 00:22:24

He is greater than me, but I was born before him in law. So even language, our language reflects that respect for those who are greater than us, in the age, in position, in authority in piety in seniority in any way, just as I battled Ramadan with him, even though he was an uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu it was in as uncles do treat their nephews, not their own sons, but above

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

the law.

00:22:27--> 00:22:30

Despite being the prophets of the law, it was Adams uncle,

00:22:31--> 00:22:49

use such language about the prophets of the law and he was he was mindful of respect, even in language, and not just the loudness of the love and all of the Sahaba of the alarm. So we have been instructed to be respectful to Allah and everything connected to

00:22:50--> 00:22:55

the Create, we have also been told to be respectful to the creation of the

00:22:58--> 00:22:59

beginning with the last panel with

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

cause we wish

00:23:03--> 00:23:16

and we must be mindful of the respect of Allah has a ledger in everything, do not take his name in vain. Do not abuse his name do not swear false hope

00:23:20--> 00:23:25

be a maps of topic in itself and then

00:23:28--> 00:23:35

the respect of anything and anyone connected with Allah create beginning with the messenger Salalah honey it was

00:23:37--> 00:23:40

we respect the messenger sort of the law it was

00:23:41--> 00:24:00

in fact it's an instruction it's a command last panel with Anna season or an in house and Marcia hit a woman Bashir on one of the the top men will be law he wore a suit he was was 00 what's behind vokra Tomasi de la saison de la messenger, we have sent you

00:24:01--> 00:24:06

as a witness, and a giver of glad tidings, and a warner

00:24:08--> 00:24:11

so that and then a lot of dresses the creation

00:24:13--> 00:24:17

so that you all may believe in Allah and in his message

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

with the zoo, and so that you may support him Are you the messengers of the law?

00:24:25--> 00:24:28

What the what they do, and so that you may reveal

00:24:31--> 00:24:45

what's the blue curtain wall sealer, and so that you may, glorifying him the praise or the name of Allah, morning and evening, but with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we have been commanded in this verse to believe in Him

00:24:46--> 00:25:00

to support him. And what what room to reveal. Don't be means, in fact, the word Bezier itself, it doesn't just mean support. It means support with risk.

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

SPECT, assist with reverence, and what the middle Allah repeats it, and so that you may revere him. So how about all the alarm, and the whole has been told not just to love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, not just to follow in his footsteps, but to revere, people sometimes follow a lead,

00:25:22--> 00:25:28

but they speak ill of them. So they respect the office but not the person. So they respect the Office of

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

leadership.

00:25:32--> 00:25:34

But they do not respect the individual

00:25:36--> 00:25:38

with an assault alarm last alone,

00:25:40--> 00:25:49

we have been command. So how about all the alarm command, not just to respect the Office of profit, not just to respect him as a lead,

00:25:51--> 00:26:14

but to love him, respect him and revere him as an individual as a person as he was. And indeed, this habit of the alarm did revere him, they respected him, and would have been the last of the alarm, one of the young leaders of the auto age, who embraced Islam, only after many years of history.

00:26:16--> 00:26:21

Until then, he was one of the most vocal opponents of the soudan la sala Hardy, who was

00:26:22--> 00:26:24

once he embraced

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

him a Muslim, I had to learn how to relate to these from him who says, there was no one who was more greater and more revered in my eyes, and the prophets of love it was to the extent that I would never look at him directly and fill my eyes with his sight, out of respect and reverence for him. And if you were to ask me to describe him, I in his later years, I would not be able to do so because I never looked at him properly, out of reverence and respect, and that was sort of the alarm.

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

Sound

00:27:06--> 00:27:12

of the alarm, who passed away in the fifth year of Hitler after the campaign of the trench?

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

Reva

00:27:16--> 00:27:20

requested that he be an arbitrator and a judge.

00:27:21--> 00:27:31

And they said we would be happy with the judgment and the decision of sound when the morale of the alarm, the prophets of the love it was seldom agreed.

00:27:35--> 00:27:37

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him

00:27:41--> 00:27:44

that you be the judge, you arbitrary

00:27:45--> 00:27:52

and since he was wounded, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded the Sahaba of the alarm to bring him

00:27:53--> 00:28:00

side of the love on cane, injured, wounded, bleeding from his arm.

00:28:01--> 00:28:35

And this How about the lover brought him since he was going to be the arbitrator. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded the Sahaba of the Allah. He actually said, huh, you know, so you they can rise to your mast. So how about the alumni who stood up to receive sadoun? Wow, that'll be a lot higher respect. Then, Sidewinder de la Horan was made the heck of the arbitrator and judge between. On the one side was the messenger sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam.

00:28:36--> 00:28:41

As a leader of the Muslims, on the other, were the leaders of wooper Eva.

00:28:43--> 00:28:48

Sadly, tomorrow, that'll be a lot harder now in a position as a judge, he has to be impartial.

00:28:50--> 00:29:18

And everyone is equal before him. And even by Arab conventionally accepted that. But look at the manner in which he behaved. He turned to the leaders of Norbert Eva and said to them, will you abide by my decision? You have made me the arbitrator and the judge, will you respect and abide by my decision? They said yes. Then he had to do the same for sudo last and the love it was

00:29:19--> 00:29:21

what reminded me of this is what

00:29:22--> 00:29:50

I would have last or the last one said that I never looked at him fully. So sadly, with tomorrow, there'll be a lot more and then turned, but not in the direction of the pseudo loss of love. It was he faced a head and looking down and he's simply signaled with his hand looking down and he said, will you also respect my decision? He did not look at he did not stretch his hand that

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

that's how bad or the alarm couldn't, could not look at the profit Scylla LaValle. Some of them even are autonomous through the thick of it. It'll be a lot harder to

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

To this, we learned in the commentary of the treaty, the Hadeeth of the Treaty of Arabia, although Dublin was through the thought of he was a non Muslim at the time.

00:30:10--> 00:30:20

He was from life, but resident amongst the what he had spent time with the Moroccans and he was respected by them. He was a senior diplomat

00:30:22--> 00:30:23

through the photography,

00:30:25--> 00:30:29

went to visit the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when they were camped out with a beer.

00:30:37--> 00:30:39

When he returned,

00:30:40--> 00:30:42

he said to the orange, he said what I wish

00:30:43--> 00:30:47

I went to visit Mohammed in his camp, viola.

00:30:51--> 00:31:06

He does not spit, without his companions are rushing for to try and catch his spit and they jostle between themselves to catch his spit. And when they do, they rub their hands, arms and their faces with the spittle.

00:31:09--> 00:31:16

When he speaks, they rush. When he instructs, they rush to fulfill his command and instruction.

00:31:22--> 00:31:27

When he speaks, they all remain silent, immediately the fall sign

00:31:30--> 00:31:37

and they do not even look at him fully in the face by filling their eyes with his appearance.

00:31:39--> 00:31:55

Even autonomous, rude attested to that that this harbottle the alarm would not stare at the profits of the law. It was out of reverence for him. And he continues on autonomous through the thick of he said he was a diplomat. He said Oh, he said oh assembly.

00:31:57--> 00:32:12

I have been to the Royal Courts of Rome of Persia and of Abyssinia, but by Allah, I have never seen a people reveal their king, as much as I have seen the companions of Muhammad reveal.

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

So how about the lover truly fulfill the command of revering the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as he should be with

00:32:24--> 00:32:34

the old, the young, the men, the women, even the wives of the Prophet, some of the minority or some, not only in his life, but even after his death.

00:32:36--> 00:32:38

Suddenly the southern side of the alarm

00:32:42--> 00:32:51

listen to this very carefully. It may be very relevant, even for this moment. sinobaler sourthern sorry, of the alarm

00:32:53--> 00:33:06

was a companion of the sort of loss and the law it was it was once relating the of Rasulullah alayhi salatu was now who's speaking about the messenger some of the lie to his own people where he lived.

00:33:08--> 00:33:16

Some of them once he was speaking about the messenger, some of the lighting or some of them, were looking at each other and talking to each other.

00:33:18--> 00:33:19

So he became angry,

00:33:20--> 00:33:21

extremely angry.

00:33:23--> 00:33:27

And he said, I speak to you about the messengers of the lahardee who listen

00:33:28--> 00:33:40

and you turn to each other by Allah, I will leave you and never return to you okay? He actually came to the conclusion he got stopped on the left and not just left the gathering.

00:33:42--> 00:33:50

He told them I will leave you never to return to your company again. He left his place of above.

00:33:51--> 00:33:52

And he went away.

00:33:53--> 00:34:01

He felt that those who could not respect the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were not worthy of being lifted.

00:34:02--> 00:34:08

And he was a companion of sort of law, some of the law it was. That's how that's how about all the alarm work.

00:34:10--> 00:34:26

And there are countless stories of the reverence of the Sahaba of the illawarra, who pursued lust and the love it was suddenly men, women, children, young and old, even the wives of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They were his wives, but

00:34:30--> 00:34:33

they treated him not just as a husband.

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

But as a messenger of

00:34:42--> 00:34:48

at times when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when there was a danger, they felt there was a danger

00:34:49--> 00:35:00

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be displeased with them or lower displeased with them. They would actually say We seek refuge for what we see

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

protection from the anger of Allah and His Messenger, subtle ally,

00:35:06--> 00:35:08

the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:35:09--> 00:35:16

they had him as a husband. But they treated him not just as a husband but as a messenger

00:35:19--> 00:35:22

throughout their lives and even after their after his passing away,

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

they would collect his perspiration his sweat, and store it and bottles to use as perfume. And these were the wives of the Prophet salaallah honey.

00:35:36--> 00:35:47

So, let's How about the alarm revealed the profits and alarm I'd even set him as he should move here. So we have been commanded to respect Allah to respect the noble messengers.

00:35:49--> 00:35:51

suited to the pajara

00:35:52--> 00:36:08

beginning verses are all about respecting the messenger of Yeah, you're Latina and all that but then beanie, the lawyer who was solely here with the law in the law smearing it? are believers do not pace yourselves before Allah and His messengers and the linings.

00:36:10--> 00:36:48

And be wary of Allah. Allah is all hearing all knowing. Yeah, you have livina and all that other federal as well to come focus Alton nibi. What are the general law who will only be generally bound to come down and murder under natural or believers do not raise your voices over and above the voice of the prophets in the line and do not speak to him loudly as you speak loudly to one another, lest your deeds perish without you even realize? In the lithonia will Buena suerte de la la la Vina Hana la Luba Hamlet, indeed those who lower their voices before the Messenger of Allah.

00:36:49--> 00:37:18

These are the ones who lost heart, Allah whose hearts lie as purified and tested for the same thing as I mentioned earlier, when we use them shout it alive in the Harmon duck will Aloo whoever venerates the symbols of Allah, then this is from the taqwa of the heart. Here again, Allah says, Those who lower their voices before the Messenger of Allah, than these are the ones whose hearts Allah has tested for the

00:37:20--> 00:37:22

reverence and respect

00:37:24--> 00:37:53

arise from the purity and piety of a person's heart. So how about the alarm, we're told won't even speak loudly, nor to call out to Him and address him as they would address one another. Now the Jaguar will soon have been banned. Barbara, do not make the call to the messenger like you make the call to one another, address him with the most appropriate titles. And this was unique for the Arabs, the Arabs would not address anyone by titles.

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

To them, even the leader of the tribe would always be mentioned with the cornea.

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

Never with titles.

00:38:05--> 00:38:14

So that was unique when it came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah says to them, Do not make the address to the messenger, as you would address one and

00:38:15--> 00:38:37

address him with respect. And that's why this How about the alarm? Except for the Bedouin, who just used to come and say, yeah, Mohammed. So how about the lover and who would address him with noble, honorable titles, often, prefacing their speech with the words for that would be what me out of salt Allah? May my parents be your ransom or messenger?

00:38:40--> 00:38:43

And about speaking to him loudly,

00:38:44--> 00:39:10

after the revelation of these verses, what are the love for him despite his bellowing voice, he would speak so softly to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had to ask them to repeat themselves. That was the murder of the alarm. And the alarm after the revelation of these verses said, or messenger of Allah, I swear by Allah, from now on own only speak to you in whisper,

00:39:12--> 00:39:13

as whispering pears,

00:39:15--> 00:39:19

even though these were his father's in law abubaker and

00:39:20--> 00:39:32

the reverence of the prophets of the love it was seldom shown by this How about the alarm is a topic in itself, but we have been commanded to do the same, but it's not just respect for a lot and respect for the messenger sort of

00:39:33--> 00:39:36

anything connected to alarms or some sort of

00:39:37--> 00:39:40

the aura respecting the

00:39:41--> 00:39:53

way that body, armor for stimuli or level one signal and looking to hammer home when the Koran is recited, then listen to it attentively and fall silent, in the hope that you may receive this

00:39:55--> 00:39:57

one should reveal

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

reciting it, if one is not reciting it oneself listening to it attentive and remaining sign, that is part of the respect of

00:40:13--> 00:40:22

respecting not just the words, but even the book, anything connected to the world and because it's connected to Allah, even the book itself.

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

And sadly,

00:40:32--> 00:40:39

the book, even the copy of the Quran must have should be respected. It should not be treated like any other book.

00:40:41--> 00:40:57

And sadly, some consider this to be an innovation or something cultural, that respecting the book, the copy the most half of the book is an innovation. It's a reprehensible innovation is something introduced into Islam later.

00:40:58--> 00:41:02

It's cultural, ignorant, backward.

00:41:05--> 00:41:07

People, they do this

00:41:09--> 00:41:13

but the learner don't know. Somehow.

00:41:15--> 00:41:19

Mm hmm. That me both relates from about a glimmer

00:41:20--> 00:41:21

of the alarm.

00:41:22--> 00:41:25

He was a companion of a subtle, subtle alarm and he was

00:41:27--> 00:41:28

the son of a Buddha.

00:41:31--> 00:41:34

Since there were all distant relatives of the prophets of Allah it was

00:41:35--> 00:41:50

in the eighth year of his job and Morocco was conquered. It Grima the son of Abu jihad, and swam the son of omiya to McAuliffe to Chief and key opponents of the messenger Salahuddin who sent them

00:41:52--> 00:41:55

when they were both they were both killed in the Battle of

00:41:57--> 00:42:01

double John's leadership passed on to his son.

00:42:03--> 00:42:19

And Amelia took mohalla leadership passed on to his son software. So even though these two were young, they became the preeminent leaders of their entire clan and tribe, and one of the Council of leaders of the branch.

00:42:20--> 00:42:49

So Nkrumah, the son of double general and software and the son of omiya. They remain they remained opposed to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam until the eighth year of hedger when Macau was conquered. When Macau was conquered, they both flat Safar the son of omiya, and equitymaster, the son of a Buddha, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, despite everything in his compassion in his mercy, he sent after them, actually requesting them to come back.

00:42:50--> 00:42:58

And that he would honor if they came. And indeed he did. Because they were distant relatives. So if one embraced,

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

it cannot have no Be gentle embrace, embraced and after eczema huddled the alarm on embrace,

00:43:07--> 00:43:08

he,

00:43:09--> 00:43:15

he remained a sincere and committed and true believer. So imagine that

00:43:17--> 00:43:18

any man

00:43:19--> 00:43:24

basically, they both relate about academic huddled the alarm,

00:43:25--> 00:43:27

the son of a wall, Jeff,

00:43:29--> 00:43:38

he would take the corn and he would place it on his face, and he would weep profusely and he would say, Get out what a big

00:43:40--> 00:43:56

book of my Lord the book of mine, you would do this regularly. Pick up the Mazel Tov the copy, place it on his face, and begin weeping, repeating the words get ba ba, ba, ba Ba Be the book of my Lord the book of mind.

00:43:57--> 00:44:05

The poor, not just the words, but the book itself deserves respect. And what this is the example of a primitive NaVi

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

or the alarm

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

but listen to the following

00:44:13--> 00:44:16

spam law spam

00:44:18--> 00:44:19

your mama Buddha,

00:44:21--> 00:44:25

Ethan Asana from see them Abdullayev number of the alarm

00:44:26--> 00:44:31

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to visit the Jews in Medina

00:44:32--> 00:44:34

in their mid Eros.

00:44:36--> 00:44:37

their place of study

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

which is morass in Hebrews midrash.

00:44:45--> 00:44:47

It's a place of study

00:44:48--> 00:45:00

the mother of sammydress, similar to mother's, so the prophets of Allah and he who sent them went to the morass of the Jews, the Jewish community in Medina one

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

With them in their offices of the Jewish community in Medina. When he visited them there, they actually honored him

00:45:07--> 00:45:17

by placing inviting him to sit down and they placed a cushion for him to sit down. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sat down on the cushion.

00:45:20--> 00:45:35

He then they This was in relation they had asked him for his ruling about a matter in their community. This was why he went, they had approached him and asked him for a ruling about a matter in their community.

00:45:36--> 00:45:47

So the profits of the law it was sort of very visited them in the Midrash. When he arrived there, they honored him, because they had requested the meeting, and they placed a cushion on which he sat down.

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

He then asked them, since they were asking him for his opinion and judgment, he said to them, bring me your thoughts.

00:45:56--> 00:46:01

The Torah, bring your Torah. So they brought the Torah in the form of a book.

00:46:02--> 00:46:09

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam This is a hadith or Abdullah have not Romero de la manganites, an authentic hadith in the Sunnah of

00:46:10--> 00:46:21

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam removed the cushion from beneath himself, sat down on the earth, and he took the door and he placed it on the cushion.

00:46:23--> 00:46:35

And then looking at the thought, he said to Vicki, or women and zealot that I have believed in you, and in the one who has sent Cheetah revealed.

00:46:36--> 00:46:42

The thing of note here is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam respected that there was

00:46:45--> 00:46:50

a non Muslim, non Islamic, non Korean Quranic book.

00:46:52--> 00:46:55

he respected the Torah, and he placed it on a pillar

00:46:57--> 00:47:03

on a cushion that was of a suitable last aligning them, if he could do that with the Torah.

00:47:04--> 00:47:08

Why can we not respect the words of the poor an animal's life itself?

00:47:11--> 00:47:36

This is just the example of one example of the prophets in the library who sent them an example of a glimmer of the alarm. And there are countless examples. So respecting not just a lion is a source of alarm it was in them, but anything connected to them, the poor and the words of the poor and the book of the poor and the copy of the poor and the must have all of these deserve, reverence and respect.

00:47:37--> 00:47:39

In fact, a loss of Hannibal with our other

00:47:41--> 00:47:55

when he speaks of revering the symbols of law's asset at the beginning, this is in relation to hedge and the rites and rituals of hedge. When he says unsuitable hedge vanacore Miyagi them automatically learn

00:47:57--> 00:48:13

them from out in LA Hippo, hadal, lower in the rock, and whoever reveals the hollow man, the sanctities of Allah, and this is far better for him with his Lord. And then in the other verse again of Silicon Valley call Miyagi Mashallah, it'll laugh in the hammock.

00:48:14--> 00:48:49

And whoever reveals and venerates the symbols of Allah than this is from the duck Wah of the heart. Both of these verses are actually in relation to the symbols of Allah in hajj. We are speaking about simple things like the sacrificial animals, again sort of Hajj Allah says, Well wouldn't a Jana Holloman Shara Illa and the sacrificial animals we have made them, symbols of Allah for you, we have made them of the symbols of Allah for you, they deserve respect. So the cows

00:48:51--> 00:49:01

that will be driven to Makkah in order to be sacrificed and slaughtered after the pilgrimage. These calves, these animals,

00:49:02--> 00:49:07

even they these camels, even they deserve to be respect.

00:49:09--> 00:49:11

Because they are the symbols of the last crown.

00:49:12--> 00:49:21

And in sort of the money that Allah has the wisdom says, Yeah, you're Latina, Armin LA, Lucia Illa O believers do not profane

00:49:22--> 00:49:27

do not profane the symbols of Allah, any of the symbols of lust

00:49:29--> 00:49:36

do not show any profanity in relation to them, Do not profane them. They are sacrosanct, reveal them on

00:49:38--> 00:49:51

and then a law continues. Yeah, you have the Dena Amanullah through Sharia law are believers do not profane the symbols of a law when a shadow the Halong and nor the sacred month what in the head and know the sacrificial animal

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

and know the gardens. What I mean by that how long is the one for the middle one or not?

00:50:00--> 00:50:29

Even those who had for the house of Allah seeking the bounty and the pleasure of their Lord, meaning, not just the animals, but the sacrificial animals will be marked by gardens, and they wouldn't just be flowers because flowers would not survive for that long through the desert journey, but the Garland's will be of different types. So anything that will be hung around the necks of the sacrificial animals, was regarded as a god of the lather.

00:50:30--> 00:50:36

Pure Allah is Allah mentions here, and what would be the Garland's bark.

00:50:38--> 00:50:44

the bark of trees would take them from trees with a string, old,

00:50:45--> 00:51:18

old dry leaves strung on a string, old flowers, even sandals. In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam morning, shadowed the alarm, took an old pair of sandals and use them as a garland over one of the sacrificial animals of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam Allah by the text of the or MCs that do not profane rather honor. Even the garlands around the necks of the sacrificial animals, well, Allah

00:51:21--> 00:51:22

all of these other symbols of the law

00:51:24--> 00:51:46

and these are all three of these verses, which I recited earlier on that it will automatically law Ronnie Coleman yagnam Sha Illa wouldn't Jana Holloman Shara, in all three of these verses are from Sudan hedge because it's all in the context of hedge and when it comes to the symbols of a large hedge that's what we're talking about the Garber the hedges on

00:51:47--> 00:51:55

the hills of Safa and Marwa the goldens, the sacrificial animals, all of these deserve to be respect

00:51:57--> 00:51:59

because they are the symbols of a last round.

00:52:02--> 00:52:04

Moving on to the creation of Allah.

00:52:06--> 00:52:11

Allah azza wa jal has commanded us to show respect. We also respect those who are called

00:52:12--> 00:52:16

greater than those in authority in piety in cinionic.

00:52:19--> 00:52:34

Imam tell me the law he relates the youth in his son from Santa Monica Don't be a librarian who says one day an old man a shave the words of Dr. Schaefer, meaning an old man he came to meet or sort of lost a lot of it who said,

00:52:39--> 00:52:40

when he came,

00:52:42--> 00:52:43

the companions

00:52:44--> 00:52:58

in their eagerness to remain seated with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they delayed making space they delayed parting and making space for him. So the old man remains standing for longer than he should have.

00:53:00--> 00:53:07

So the words of the head of youth are an old man came to visit the messenger Salaam, it was still in the companions delayed panting,

00:53:08--> 00:53:10

creating a path for him.

00:53:11--> 00:53:17

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Lisa min, Mila Miriam Selena now where you could be.

00:53:19--> 00:53:23

He is not one of us, who does not show compassion to our young

00:53:24--> 00:53:26

and respects to our elders.

00:53:31--> 00:53:32

He is not one of us.

00:53:35--> 00:53:48

And in the Hadees, later, Bye, mom or dad will be his son Hassan, from Satan, Abu Salah, shalida, the Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, indeed it is part of the veneration of Allah,

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

to respect

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

a Muslim of old age, meaning respecting an elderly person means respecting a large

00:54:01--> 00:54:18

part of the honoring an old person means honoring a law, part of the veneration of Allah Himself is to respect an elderly person, and not just an elderly person, the youth continues, well, how many four and a half is

00:54:21--> 00:54:31

on the condition the words are laid in the Hardy Fie while Jaffe and provided that he does not go to extremes that in and is not neglectful

00:54:32--> 00:54:46

and heedless of someone who adheres to the practice and the teaching of the to the practice of the earn profits in the law it will send them says honoring them is part of honoring allow.

00:54:47--> 00:55:00

And in fact, in another headache later Bama Hakeem and Mamma mia the amount how we and others, the same Hadeeth of us one article, the alarm from Timothy, these authors related prophets a little bit later

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

From about Samira Viola on

00:55:03--> 00:55:27

the wedding the head Ethan's he is not one of us. Lisa minimalna mujin Muslim Eugenia Kabira. Now we are from Salina. We are deeply adamant that he is not one of us listen to the words he is not one of us, who does not respect our elders show compassion and mercy to our young woman and does not recognize our scholar.

00:55:29--> 00:55:53

Respecting half of and respecting Scott, respecting a half of them, respecting them around him, is part of the deen of Allah. This is actually a heavy thing, the command and instruction of none other than the Messenger of Allah sallallahu it was, Why, because of their connection with the Elohim of Allah.

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

And this has been the case throughout history.

00:56:01--> 00:56:08

We are commanded to respect our elders, and first and foremost amongst them our parents.

00:56:10--> 00:56:14

last panel, who would rather categorically say is one of our

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

early days

00:56:18--> 00:56:23

in my inner circle Kibera Hama Ocala fala llama

00:56:25--> 00:56:57

Allahumma olan Karima walk in La madrina eliminar Rama Rama Rama Kumar sohara, Allah says on your Lord has decreed and sort of Allah and your Lord has decreed that you do not worship anyone but him. And your Lord has decreed that you shall good and kindness to the parents. So a lot of places though heed first and then immediately thereafter, respect and kindness towards parents.

00:57:01--> 00:57:03

Further Allah continues, if

00:57:04--> 00:57:05

any,

00:57:06--> 00:57:11

any one of the two parents or even both of them should reach old age with you.

00:57:14--> 00:57:16

Then do not even say often

00:57:18--> 00:57:20

and do not rebuke them.

00:57:23--> 00:57:28

What Allahumma Olam Karima rather say, a noble word

00:57:30--> 00:57:34

what the words are beautiful, what the home Arjuna had eliminated

00:57:35--> 00:57:41

and lower the wind of humility, out of compassion before

00:57:43--> 00:57:45

saying, Oh my Lord,

00:57:46--> 00:57:47

have mercy.

00:57:49--> 00:57:52

Just as they nurtured me when I was here.

00:57:56--> 00:58:03

Why does the law specify at the very beginning if one of them or both of them should reach old age with

00:58:05--> 00:58:07

its because that is the most difficult time

00:58:08--> 00:58:13

when parents reach old age, they become infirm.

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

Physically,

00:58:17--> 00:58:21

they lack strength and energy, they become very dependent.

00:58:25--> 00:58:37

They can become very irritable, very irascible, very difficult of character, often stubborn. And with the onset of advanced age,

00:58:38--> 00:58:40

they can easily begin to suffer

00:58:41--> 00:58:51

lapses, loss of memory, dementia, Alzheimer's, all of these diseases, mental diseases or

00:58:53--> 00:58:54

cognitive diseases

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

which affect people in their old age.

00:59:01--> 00:59:09

As a result of and this is why people become senile and old age is regarded as second child.

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

And parents can be very difficult.

00:59:14--> 00:59:23

It's not easy in that age to deal with them to treat them to meet their demands, to satisfy them to even reason with them at times.

00:59:25--> 00:59:36

Even in such testing difficult circumstances, a loss of Hannah hall with the other essays do not even say oft

00:59:38--> 00:59:45

though they may be seen as though they may be harsh and that with their words, though they may be difficult.

00:59:47--> 00:59:58

Even in old age, do not say oft and the meaning of off is exactly that off. This may not be in some cultures, but in many cultures

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

off

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

is an expression of exasperation or frustration. So some people, that's actually the most noble thing some people do in the sense that

01:00:11--> 01:00:16

they don't fight back. They don't argue back, they don't abuse, but the most they do is

01:00:18--> 01:00:36

Allah subhanho with that, in a way, one is glad that they don't do anything else. They just say off the most they say or the most they do is just express their frustration and exasperation by saying, off last panel with Allah says, Do not even say

01:00:39--> 01:00:39

wrong,

01:00:40--> 01:00:46

even in such difficult circumstances, what will lama galima say, a noble word.

01:00:47--> 01:01:13

And lower your wing of humility, lower, lower the wing of humility, before them out of compassion, and pray for them, reminding yourself and praying, Lord, Allah have mercy on them, just as they nurtured me when I was small, and it's a role, when we were young, helpless, dependent,

01:01:15--> 01:01:20

lacking strength, wisdom, intelligence and ability.

01:01:21--> 01:02:00

We were in their care, they sacrifice their sleep, their hours, their health, their wealth, for our sake. Now, the roles are reversed, when they have reached old age, the second childhood, and they have become infirm. They, they may lack that intelligence, that ability, that cognition, definitely that energy and that strength, and when they are dependent on us. And we are in the prime of our strength, and the roles are reversed, we should do with them and for them, and be for them as they did for us. And as they were for us in our church.

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

It's what selfishness is this, that they did everything for us.

01:02:09--> 01:02:21

And now we discard. We ignore them. We rebuke them. In fact, I forgot to translate part of the well elaborate one part of the verse will add in her home and do not repeat.

01:02:24--> 01:02:25

And do not repeat.

01:02:27--> 01:02:40

Do not even say off to them and do not even repeat them. So what justice is this, that when we were dependent, they did everything for us. And now we discard them, we dishonor them, we disrespect them.

01:02:41--> 01:02:48

And the concept of respecting parents in Islam is such that the hadith of that man who was

01:02:50--> 01:03:01

blocked one of the three who was blocked in the cave, and they said pray to Allah with the best of your deeds. And his best deed, which he could recall was over law.

01:03:02--> 01:03:22

I have elderly parents, and every night, I would feed them with a bowl of milk, what I would feed them, one day I got delayed and I came back with a bowl of milk. And I stood before them that they had fallen asleep. And I remain standing there with that bowl of milk until they are

01:03:24--> 01:03:28

all night. And then I gave them to drink and fed them.

01:03:30--> 01:03:34

This is the concept of respect for parents and

01:03:36--> 01:03:41

it's not cultural, none of these things are cultural. This is what Allah tells us to.

01:03:44--> 01:04:10

Respect is not part of any culture of any Muslim community from certain parts of the world. respect and reverence for Allah, for the people of Allah for the symbols of Allah for the book of Allah for the water and for the Muslims, for knowledge, the people of knowledge for the elderly, for one's parents, and respect in this manner, is part of the religion of Islam is not part of any culture.

01:04:11--> 01:04:13

So you should not be dismissed.

01:04:14--> 01:04:18

This is what Allah has assumed Salalah he was taught.

01:04:19--> 01:04:24

He is not one of those who does not show mercy to our young and does not respect our elders.

01:04:26--> 01:04:31

and respect in Word, indeed, in action,

01:04:34--> 01:04:35

in every way,

01:04:36--> 01:04:44

and that's with the elders as with parents, with those who are older than us in seniority, in authority in knowledge.

01:04:47--> 01:04:48

We've gathered here to learn

01:04:53--> 01:04:59

and we all want to learn about our religion and improve our knowledge game but in

01:05:00--> 01:05:02

cannot be gained without

01:05:03--> 01:05:09

without respect, without good beautiful manners in can never be getting.

01:05:10--> 01:05:16

Even whatever I have to learn here and a famous scholar who was one of the students of Mr. monochromator law, he really

01:05:17--> 01:05:19

even Webb says,

01:05:20--> 01:05:21

we learned

01:05:24--> 01:05:26

and we quoted and we conveyed

01:05:27--> 01:05:33

more about others and respect and manners from Imam Malik when we did have knowledge.

01:05:36--> 01:05:52

Even the companion under Santa Monica Lila horn, he, he actually advise someone a young man, he said to him, my son, learn other manners and respect before you learn in.

01:05:54--> 01:05:55

In

01:05:56--> 01:05:59

there is no concept of illness without

01:06:00--> 01:06:03

no concept of knowledge without respect.

01:06:07--> 01:06:11

Susan gaff lost crown hall with Anna tells the story of

01:06:14--> 01:06:18

musala, his sedan and the pious servants of Allah.

01:06:21--> 01:06:56

Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah told him Saudi, his Sadam the background to the story is someone asked him in one narration, is there anyone more learned than you? Also the alarm Prophet Musa alayhis, salam, Musa alayhis salam, indeed, he said that, and he was correct in saying so considering that there is no one more knowledgeable than the prophets of Allah. So he told the question, and there is no one more knowledgeable than me. And in one duration, someone asked him, Who is the most knowledgeable and he said, I am. So last panel with that I wanted to correct him.

01:06:57--> 01:07:16

Because in his position as a prophet, you would have behaved him and he would have been more befitting for him to ascribe knowledge to Allah rather than to himself. So last panel was there and I wanted to show him so all I told him gnomes are there is someone more knowledgeable than you? And one of our set

01:07:17--> 01:07:30

musante is and I'm straightaway said, Oh, my lord shown is there any way to him sort of loss of there is, and there's a long miraculous eventful journey to have allergies that are mentioned in the aura

01:07:32--> 01:07:39

when he arrived, and eventually met him, What did the Prophet whoo Sally has them say to him,

01:07:40--> 01:07:45

and he is one of the orderlies. Women are one of the five great prophets.

01:07:49--> 01:07:54

Musa alayhis salam said to him, hello, look at

01:07:55--> 01:07:56

Merrill Lynch.

01:07:57--> 01:08:05

Or the independence the theorem is Sabra. Okay, for those who don't Adam Adam, Cobra, on us at the jejuni insha. Allah saw a bit on when

01:08:07--> 01:08:09

he said, May I follow

01:08:10--> 01:08:17

on the understanding that you will teach me of that guidance that you have been given?

01:08:18--> 01:08:22

How they were said to him, you will never be able to remain patient?

01:08:23--> 01:08:27

And how can you remain patient over that which you do not understand fully?

01:08:28--> 01:08:36

I'm sorry, Sam said to him, insha Allah, you will find the patient and I will not disobey you in any matter.

01:08:38--> 01:08:46

Have them told him fine, but on the condition that you do not speak to me until I speak to you first.

01:08:48--> 01:08:55

All of this shows Musa alayhis salaam humbled himself beforehand that Allah has said I'm in order to gain knowledge.

01:08:57--> 01:09:13

So many lessons in all of this, just these few words. May I follow you, He humbled Himself requested permission to follow. Recognize that the other person had been given guidance and knowledge, recognize that he would be teach.

01:09:15--> 01:09:19

When How did alayhis salam refused? he persisted?

01:09:21--> 01:09:57

Whether alayhis salaam told him, how can you be you won't be patience. How can you be patient you don't fully understand. masala Islam did not respond to any of this. His only response was a humble one saying insha Allah. He didn't say I will be patient. I will understand how can you say I don't I won't understand fully I don't understand fully. I don't comprehend. He did not defend himself. He did not respond in any negative manner. He accepted everything that was being said to him, and this was Prophet Musa alayhis salaam of Allah. Of all people.

01:10:00--> 01:10:06

same one who kept on telling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what did your Lord give you in Marat arch.

01:10:07--> 01:10:15

And then when he told him Allah gave me this is go back to the same Sally hisar go back to Allah go back to Allah go back to the here.

01:10:16--> 01:10:41

The same Musashi he said on who said, Robbie Ernie under a lake, Oh my Lord, show me yourself so that I may see a loss of you will never see look at the mountain. When Allah revealed himself to the mountain, the mountain disintegrated. Also Allah has collapsed prophets Allah love it wa sallam says of Musa alayhis salaam on Yom Yom.

01:10:43--> 01:10:54

I will be the first one to be revived from the shock. And when I will awake when I will awaken. I will find musante salaam already.

01:10:56--> 01:11:10

Musa alayhis salam despite his great position, he's humbling himself before How did alayhis salaam accepting everything that's been said to him. And then how they really he's now imposes conditions on him. You can't speak to me without me speaking to you.

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

Do not talk to me, until I taught did not ask me anything.

01:11:18--> 01:11:21

Inside Islam tells him I will not disobeying

01:11:24--> 01:11:38

all of the shows humility and respect. One cannot gain any knowledge or any religion. without respect. Respect comes before knowledge in fact, all speaking about respecting one another even in marriage.

01:11:40--> 01:11:44

We claim love we claim to love our husbands, our wives, our spouses.

01:11:47--> 01:11:59

And in many instances there is love. But isn't it strange? How can the person claim to love another one they don't even respect them? Respect is a basic element.

01:12:02--> 01:12:06

You can respect someone without loving them, but how can you love someone and not respectful?

01:12:08--> 01:12:11

Respect is part of basic human decency.

01:12:14--> 01:12:16

So even in marriage,

01:12:18--> 01:12:29

one should respect one spouse, one husband, one's wife, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam respected as well as he did in many ways,

01:12:31--> 01:12:36

even when he shall be alohar and how was accused of a major sin.

01:12:38--> 01:12:40

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

01:12:41--> 01:12:48

when he's confronted her, how did he do? shouting, scolding.

01:12:49--> 01:13:00

angrily, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sat her down face to and then he began with the awkward reading the hotbar of Shangri La.

01:13:02--> 01:13:04

And then he said, Oh, Arusha.

01:13:06--> 01:13:07

Something has reached me.

01:13:10--> 01:13:19

And he actually went to speak to her about such a sensitive issue with respect so well, he was a messenger of salani.

01:13:20--> 01:13:23

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam showed respect to his wife.

01:13:27--> 01:13:32

How can we claim to love someone when we don't even respect?

01:13:33--> 01:13:44

Respect comes before many things, and even in knowledge, one cannot gain any knowledge without respect. One may gain information but no, no true knowledge.

01:13:45--> 01:13:49

And there's been a tradition of respect in the history of Islam, between

01:13:50--> 01:13:56

their students, students and their teachers all the way to the sort of loss of the livelihood. So

01:13:58--> 01:14:04

how will this How about the love and with the profits and the learning what's in them? How are the students have this habit of the alarm with them?

01:14:06--> 01:14:10

The stories of respect between students and teachers

01:14:12--> 01:14:21

are truly astounding and they are consistent from the beginning of Islam till today. consistent. Again, this is not cultural.

01:14:23--> 01:14:29

Well, being respected, and students showing respect to the earlier man is not cultural.

01:14:31--> 01:15:00

It's part of religion, and as part of religious history, I gave the example of Harun Rashid, Harun al Rashid, the Emperor sent His Son to Imam, a smoky aroma Hola. And when he visited him, he saw his son the prince of the ambassador Empire, the son of Halima Rashid, pouring water while Samantha Smith he was washing his feet in will do so however, Rashid came upset and told him that I did not

01:15:00--> 01:15:06

Send him to send him to you so that you could teach him you could teach them other. Why is he pouring water

01:15:08--> 01:15:17

on your feet while you're washing your feet, you should be pouring water on your feet with one hand and washing your feet with the air. That was Harun Rashid.

01:15:19--> 01:15:36

And that was when he sends his Prince have a son to be taught. In Mr. Monica de la jolla. Harun Rashid sent word to Mr. Manik the a bastard Emperor, saying I wish you to relate Hadeeth to me, come to the palace.

01:15:38--> 01:15:42

This is when he visited Medina when he would visit Medina Harmon we have a sheet from above that.

01:15:44--> 01:15:47

Mr. Monica de la he they sent word to him.

01:15:51--> 01:15:52

And they really malaria at the

01:15:53--> 01:15:56

LA ilme doesn't come illness traveled.

01:15:58--> 01:16:01

Harun Rashid came to America.

01:16:02--> 01:16:03

When he came

01:16:05--> 01:16:28

in America to LA he was leaning against the wall. Haruna Rashid, the emperor of the time came and sat down next Imam Malik leaning against all Imam Malik told him part of knowledge is respecting knowledge. How ruler Imam Malik remain reclining against the wall. Harun Rashid went around and sat in front of him like

01:16:30--> 01:16:33

that was a Harun Rashid the Emperor.

01:16:35--> 01:16:44

This is not of any foreign culture. This is part of Muslim Islamic religious culture. And not just a man Manik

01:16:45--> 01:16:47

Monica de la had a was

01:16:48--> 01:16:54

a man carried himself with great work with great dignity. You will never laugh.

01:16:56--> 01:17:08

He will never say more than yes or no. He wouldn't read these people read these to him headless. He would. Often the most he would say is yes, no.

01:17:09--> 01:17:11

People revered.

01:17:12--> 01:17:17

But these scholars revealed their teachers that teachers revealed their own teachers.

01:17:20--> 01:17:23

Eman so he didn't say rahula.

01:17:25--> 01:17:29

He's normally regarded as a leader of being the leader of the successes. He died in 94.

01:17:31--> 01:17:47

Your mom so Edelman will say you brush mala it said of him. He lived in Medina for 40 years, he would only be found in one of two places, either his house or the masjid in 40 years, he never visited the marketplace. That was a monster either.

01:17:49--> 01:18:05

So either one will say you would come into the masjid and obese on the lahardee who didn't pray to the gods Allah. And the narrator says, once he had prayed to regather Salah, the sons of them will hide your room and the inside will all gather around him.

01:18:07--> 01:18:19

And the whole gathering would be silent. He would not speak a word and no one would dare to ask him anything or even say a word. They all waited until he spoke first.

01:18:20--> 01:18:21

Then they listened.

01:18:23--> 01:18:33

And these were the sons of the Sahaba of the alarm. The Mahajan on the inside because he didn't will save himself was a derby and a man of great scholarship and piety.

01:18:35--> 01:18:40

They did it with their teachers and their students on them. This is a tradition

01:18:41--> 01:19:05

ebrahimian Marie mala was a famous Dobby. He had seen the Sahaba of the Allahu Akbar when he was a great scholar of Kufa. This was goofiness prime and it was a capital or when it was the cultural and theological scholarly capital of Islam. Even our human military had a student hammer did not abuse a man.

01:19:06--> 01:19:08

Hammer did not abuse when a man

01:19:11--> 01:19:48

would go and visit his teacher is shave Ibrahima fairy and honor him wait upon him attend to his needs when his chores. So one day he brought him not having sent hammer did not have use of a man to the marketplace to buy some meat. So he went when he was making his way back to the house or his shape and teacher Eman. Ibrahim McCurry was a Barbie hamedan obviously man's father met him on the road. And when he saw his son carrying a basket,

01:19:49--> 01:19:58

he actually had a basket, a basket of meat to his teacher. He brought him up at his house and became angry because he didn't want to see his son in that state.

01:19:59--> 01:20:00

Instead

01:20:00--> 01:20:06

Survival men are waiting upon someone else. So in his anger, he struck the baskets.

01:20:07--> 01:20:10

And it flew from her mother's mommy's on a man's hand.

01:20:12--> 01:20:18

Her man picks it up mentor his teachers house. Many years later, when Ibrahim Murphy passed away,

01:20:20--> 01:20:21

the only amount of heavy

01:20:22--> 01:20:34

they wanted someone to be their leader and their main teacher. So they came knocking on the door of her mother in law of UCLA man. So when the father came out, they said, We don't want you. We want your son.

01:20:36--> 01:20:54

So the father went in when he saw this great group of scholars, leading scholars who all came to honor Imam Hamad might be silly man as their grand teacher. So the father went in, and he said they've come for you. And they said, Now I see where that basket has taken you.

01:20:55--> 01:21:04

Now I see where that basket has taken. And hammered might be said a man was a shake and the teacher of Imam Abu hanifa

01:21:06--> 01:21:30

Imam Abu hanifah Rahmatullah he and he says, respect we've all heard of Imam Abu hanifa I mean, not necessarily ever heard or know much about your mom. Her Madigan, obviously man like you brought him on nursery but this was the chain. Your mom what was one of his most famous teacher was a hammer did not have use of a man his shape and his most famous teacher was Ibrahim McCurry. So Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah says

01:21:32--> 01:21:35

it Can you believe this from Imam Abu hanifa.

01:21:38--> 01:21:53

A man of that position, he says, I have never stretched my legs towards the house of my teacher Hammad in my entire life, even though there are seven streets between my house and his house.

01:21:54--> 01:21:55

Respect.

01:21:56--> 01:22:11

This is not part of any foreign culture. This is the culture of the amount of Islam, the Sahaba that there'll be room in the temple at the bar and their followers and their success of mesh treatments continuously. So today

01:22:12--> 01:22:23

I have never stretched my legs towards a house of my teacher hammer. Even though there are seven streets between my house and his house. You are more hanifa says

01:22:24--> 01:22:27

ever since my teacher her mom passed away.

01:22:31--> 01:22:32

I have never

01:22:34--> 01:22:42

prayed for my parents, except that I have prayed for my teacher along with my parents after every solar.

01:22:43--> 01:22:47

Your mom among Abu hanifa students a member will use of Rama hula essays.

01:22:50--> 01:22:59

But before I pray for my parents, before I pray for my parents, I have always prayed for my teacher.

01:23:00--> 01:23:17

Before I pray for my parents, remember what Oliver says about his teacher I have always prayed for my teacher hammered along with my parents and I have always sought forgiveness on behalf of anyone who has taught me or who from whom I have learned anything.

01:23:20--> 01:23:20

Mr.

01:23:21--> 01:23:23

Miller here Lacy's

01:23:24--> 01:23:32

for 30 years I have always prayed for your mom Shafi and I have sought forgiveness for him on his behalf and I have done this.

01:23:35--> 01:23:45

This was the the these are the real amount of Islam Abu hanifa will use of Imam Shafi Imam handle. Imam Shafi himself says of

01:23:48--> 01:24:06

all of them did this with their own teachers, Imam or be it Muslim man, one of the students of Islam Shafi. You know what he says? He says, My entire life, I have never drank water in front of Mr. Musharraf. He was he's ever looked at me out of respect and reverence for

01:24:08--> 01:24:21

this is how students were before their teachers. We're not talking about small time students, we all talking about the alarm and the demands and the grand cachet of Islam. These are the grim demons.

01:24:22--> 01:24:26

imams of Yama thodi max with the Imam sofian of marine

01:24:29--> 01:24:35

both great imams have had a few months of piano theory from from Kufa, mom's a fan of norina from

01:24:37--> 01:24:43

famous from Sophia Foley and Sophia and Sophia was much older.

01:24:44--> 01:24:46

So your mom Sophia and the 30

01:24:47--> 01:24:49

when you mess up with Sophia and of Marina

01:24:52--> 01:25:00

so if you're not, you know, remain silent throughout it and not speak. And this is how women are well and they met with those whom they regarded as being great

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

They will not say

01:25:02--> 01:25:03

respect.

01:25:04--> 01:25:06

So So karma Foley said

01:25:07--> 01:25:13

to soufiane of Marina, why don't you speak. So founded Marina said, as long as you are an IBO

01:25:15--> 01:25:23

these were the older man, the moms of Islam, this was a tradition and culture of respect and reverence, and what respect

01:25:24--> 01:25:43

this was to do with Allah. And is that a soul similar largely, because they recognize these people as being the repositories of knowledge, they carried in their hearts, and in their minds and their beings and in their characters, the teachings of alarm the teachings of his messengers in the world, he send them, this is what led them to respect.

01:25:45--> 01:25:47

And this is part of the respect of Islam.

01:25:48--> 01:25:55

Part of the respectable part of the veneration of the symbols of the people of the people have the knowledge,

01:25:56--> 01:25:57

so many stories of

01:25:59--> 01:26:03

how they studied how they studied Heidi,

01:26:05--> 01:26:30

and reverence and silence your mom, so he didn't want to see you. But I said earlier about moms even will see that the companions, children, meaning that grown up sons, and would sit around and they will never speak him. So either one will say you've actually says that you should never call a must have a little copy. You should never say a little must have a little or an you should never say a small machine.

01:26:31--> 01:26:34

He actually says, sometimes we do.

01:26:35--> 01:26:42

You have a large and you have a small pocket size one or smaller sized one. So what do we call it? It's a small

01:26:44--> 01:26:46

amount at the mercy of this great amount

01:26:49--> 01:26:52

of data Dobby, the one who was called the leader of the derby in

01:26:53--> 01:27:01

he actually used to say that you should never say small or animal small machine. Because everything to do with allies great.

01:27:03--> 01:27:05

Part of that respect.

01:27:06--> 01:27:14

When it came to the way that they regarded these people as being the repositories of knowledge of the words of a law, how would they learn

01:27:17--> 01:27:32

the way they sat with respect you brought your mom humble right into law, he and he was once seated, he was even ill, he was reclining against the wall. Someone started speaking about one of the great imams of Islam, Imam Ibrahim.

01:27:34--> 01:28:08

He was leaning against the wall. He was actually ill. When someone mentioned the name of Emanuel Rahim Rahim Allah, Imam, Madonna, humble satta. These were the words of the Prophet. These weren't the words of the heavy. And then he said, it is not befitting is that the pious are mentioned in our myths. And we recline against the

01:28:09--> 01:28:27

respect not only for the words of Allah for the heady, but for even the real amount and the pious, just the name and the memory of a pious person. And imagine with him humble How would they learn Hadeeth luck though?

01:28:28--> 01:28:35

One of the narrator says about your mom Yeah, even even it'll call your mom Yeah, didn't say either. A bomb was a great amount of heavy.

He is the I have never considered myself humble or so not humble. I have never considered myself small before anyone meaning no one ever filled me with me with such or that they overwhelmed me. And I lacked any confidence before them. No one ever did that because he was a genius. He says, I have never felt small. I have never considered myself small before anyone except in my mid mid
