Because I actually wanted to today

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

go over,

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

a very chilling hadith of the Prophet sallallahu

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

alaihi wasallam.

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

And this is the hadith of Sauban mentioned

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

in Suran Abu Dawood.

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

And in this hadith we hear about

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

a time to come. But the way the

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

Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam phrase this hadith

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

is that he said, a time will soon

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

come, meaning it is upon you, meaning it

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

is close.

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

He said

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

that

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

a time is upon you

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

when the nations of the world

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

will gather around you,

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

and they will attack you,

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

and they will invite one another

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

to attack and harm you. Just as someone

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

who would sit down to eat

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

at a plate of food, and they would

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

invite others to come join in them in

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

this feast.

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

And the companions radhiallahu anhu,

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

they were shocked to hear this,

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

that a time like this would come. And

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

so they asked the Prophet

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

They said,

00:01:07 --> 00:01:09

Is it because we are so few

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

in that time, and we are so few

00:01:11 --> 00:01:12

in number?

00:01:12 --> 00:01:15

The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, bal antum

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

yawaydin kir.

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

No. On that day, in that time, in

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

that moment,

00:01:20 --> 00:01:23

there's going to be many of you,

00:01:24 --> 00:01:26

but you will be and now he mentions

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

the state

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

of the Ummah.

00:01:28 --> 00:01:30

He says you will be like the filth

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

that floats on top of water,

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

meaning there's no value to you.

00:01:35 --> 00:01:38

You float about, there's nothing there to you.

00:01:38 --> 00:01:38

Allah

00:01:40 --> 00:01:41

will remove

00:01:42 --> 00:01:44

your fear from the hearts of your enemies.

00:01:44 --> 00:01:47

And then the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

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

said, walayatadayfannalahu

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

firkulubikum

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

alwahil,

00:01:52 --> 00:01:54

And he will put into your hearts,

00:01:55 --> 00:01:57

al wahin. And you know it's very interesting

00:01:57 --> 00:01:59

because the word al wahin or wahin

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

literally means like fatigue.

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

And Allah speaking about childbirth

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

says,

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

It's fatigue

00:02:07 --> 00:02:09

and being tired and worn out.

00:02:10 --> 00:02:13

And so the companions are asking this when,

00:02:13 --> 00:02:16

this this fatigue, what is that?

00:02:16 --> 00:02:17

They said,

00:02:18 --> 00:02:21

Like what is this wahil that would cause

00:02:21 --> 00:02:23

us to be in this despicable state?

00:02:24 --> 00:02:26

And the prophet subhanahu alaihi wa sallam,

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

he said, This wahil

00:02:28 --> 00:02:29

is

00:02:30 --> 00:02:31

He

00:02:33 --> 00:02:34

said, This wahil

00:02:34 --> 00:02:37

is this love, and this desire, and this

00:02:37 --> 00:02:38

infatuation

00:02:38 --> 00:02:40

for this worldly life,

00:02:41 --> 00:02:42

and the hatred

00:02:42 --> 00:02:45

for death. Now the prophet

00:02:45 --> 00:02:47

says this, that this is shocking for the

00:02:47 --> 00:02:48

companions

00:02:48 --> 00:02:51

because the state that the companions were in

00:02:51 --> 00:02:53

at that moment was the opposite of this

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

hadith.

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

Meaning they were not infatuated

00:02:56 --> 00:02:57

with the dunya.

00:02:57 --> 00:02:59

Their end all and be all of their

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

existence was not worldly life, and worldly gains,

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

and worldly benefits, and worldly comforts.

00:03:05 --> 00:03:07

Their end all and be all was not

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

every desire that we have needs to be

00:03:10 --> 00:03:11

fulfilled in this life.

00:03:12 --> 00:03:13

They yearned

00:03:14 --> 00:03:15

for the akhirah.

00:03:15 --> 00:03:18

They yearned for the afterlife. They knew that

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

this life is temporary, that this life is

00:03:20 --> 00:03:23

fleeting. This life is a test from Allah

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

This life is a life in which we

00:03:25 --> 00:03:26

earn

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

the akhirah.

00:03:28 --> 00:03:30

It is because of that state of mind,

00:03:30 --> 00:03:33

that state of being, that spiritual state that

00:03:33 --> 00:03:34

they found this hadith

00:03:35 --> 00:03:36

to be shocking.

00:03:37 --> 00:03:38

That a time will come

00:03:39 --> 00:03:41

when the ummah will no longer

00:03:42 --> 00:03:44

yearn for the akhirah. They will be infatuated

00:03:44 --> 00:03:47

with this dunya. And one of the things

00:03:47 --> 00:03:49

that will happen at that time is that

00:03:49 --> 00:03:50

we will lose strength.

00:03:51 --> 00:03:53

We will lose, Mike. We will lose honor.
