And you are most definitely definitely part of this gathering our chef Sadie she's the heavy though lies is this hadith also encompasses those who study online

the the the early years of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his journey to the countryside. And if you recall at the beginning, I mentioned to you certain names that I wanted you to
such as Baraka, such as the weyba, such as Halima, such as Amina, such as Muhammad, such as rubella Will you remember that? I said take heed of these names.
And the reason why I said that is because we taking lessons from this year if we look at Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his life
the people around him had amazing names.
Amina, which means refers to protection and security and someone content Amina, when one of his characters Baraka blessings.
Then you have
the one of his foster mothers through Ava, which refers to rewards. When you have Halima
his other foster mother Halima somebody soft, somebody gentle, somebody caring when you have his name Muhammad, the praised one. Then you also have the month in which he was born Ruby. Ruby, Ruby refers to this this type of spring this happy moment where things flower. Right, amazing names, shall Islam even Tamia Rahmatullah Holly, he says
everybody has a portion
of the names that they carry and the names that they surrounded with.
We take this lesson
the lesson of being careful and particular with the names that we choose for our children when we name this is what we learn from this event in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam How to Choose good names for our children. Some people Mashallah they have amazing methodologies in choosing their children's names you hear names, you see the panel Ah, where did you get this name from? It's as if you know, there is open the must have closed the eyes, flicked a few pages, and then just you know,
by shape Ah,
no, no, no, no, Chapin is not a good name. Let's Let's try it again.
Right. It's as if we're just picking names from anyway, this is just a light hearted moment for you all.
We should choose the best names for our children. The best names for our children. names which have precious meanings names. Even better if the name was the name of a great man walk the face of this earth. Mohamed ashmit
Ali Ravi Allahu anhu my dream and before that sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam placenames Moosa Ibrahim la Corrado make you understand this name Ibrahim, use of Allahu Akbar
Beautiful Names today we say no, you know those are old fashioned names. You know she has give us a name. So what do you have a boy or a girl? Boy? Why did you name Abdullah? That's a good old fashioned
one. You know the current names?
The infection names what are the infection names? My I'm not a trend follower. Allah Allah. What's infection and what's out of fashion. Right. And today you find some Panama we give our children names. If you Google these names, that the names of the biggest singers and people and people of us out there amongst them, yes, they have a nice tune to it.
But in reality,
As this great scholar said, Everybody has a portion from the name that they carry.
Choose names of people
that were the giants that woke the face of this earth so your child can grow up
and anticipate being like the person who made his name famous. This is what we learn from this year. Sort of our old fashioned names, the substantial remember we spoke about in one of the lessons personality versus character? What do you want to be a personality? Or do you want to be shallow?
Or do you want to have character and be a person of substance
so we are a portion of the names that we carry. This was the last lesson that I wish to share with you yesterday, but time ran out. And hamdulillah blessed us to cover this lesson today.
Moving on my dear brothers and sisters we want to discuss today be in Ilaha, Allah insha Allah,
we want to discuss the opening of the chest of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Finally, we we got to it, the opening of the chest of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This incident is very famous in this era. And there's more than one Hadith, which mentions this incident, there's slight differences in the narrative, and inshallah we'll try and take a couple. But the essence of the of the story and the narration is the same. The chest of Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, was opened.
If we look at the Hadith in Sahih, Muslim the hadith of Anasazi Allahu Allah, He says that gibreel at a Salam came to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whilst he was playing with the other boys. And remember, we spoke about the countryside yesterday, that was a stable environment, and they were allowed to be children to run around to play. There weren't
any obstacles that stop them from free play, like caravans coming into the city and leaving the city mcheza a small place, right? So he was playing with his foster brothers, and the other boys. And he says that gibreel took hold of him and threw him to the ground and opened his chest and took out his heart. You can imagine Yeah, and when you when you obviously this is, this is something we haven't seen. Right? So we don't know exactly how it was. But if you think of a doctor that operates on you, and so on and so forth, and the process and the intricacies here, you have Vishal, Pamela, Allahu Allah.
Allah is upon all things Eva, take him, put him on the grounds with the heart, take out the heart, the chest, take out the heart. Right, this is what jabril did. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam the best of all angels the be the king of the angels, the boss of the angels gibreel Allah His salam, a mighty angel,
the certain matters that are specific to jabril Allah He ceram such as revelation, and we know the famous Heidi Levin Allah subhanho wa Taala love someone he calls out to gibreel and jabril starts ascending the heavens and the angels are all excited in anticipation. Subhana Allah Allah has summoned jabril What does Allah have for gibreel? And Allah says to jabril iF gibreel I love this person, so love him. And then gibreel starts descending the heavens and as he descends, they start asking, What did I tell you? What did Allah tell you a mighty angel Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, he has specifics that as the angels do not, and gibreel starts telling them Allah told me that he loves
this person and commanded me to love him. So the angels of those heavens, they want to have a portion of these gifts that go to God and so they said, We will also love him. Until the creations of the skies love this person. Subhana Allah May Allah make us beloved to him, and make the angels lovers instruct them to love us. I mean, this is done my dear brothers and sisters by pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala and not pleasing the people. Right? This is a footnote, and we all love fitness.
We please Allah and not the people.
When you do that, and the people are upset with you, Allah causes these guys to love you.
And eventually, we love from the skies will be so overwhelming that the people on earth will be forced to love you as well. It's a win win situation when you love Allah and live for Allah and do for Allah and leave for Allah and speak for Allah and remain silent for Allah and worship only one Allah subhanho wa Taala
so jovial Elisa Lam to Cody's heart, and from there he took out a clot of blood and said this was the shape and shape of you and then he washed his heart in a
vessel of gold that was filled with Zamzam. This blessed water. That was from the barrack office, Marina de Salaam and Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam, then he put his heart back in
and, or he put the heart together, returned it back to its place. Now, when this happened, the boys immediately obviously this was, this was crazy. I mean, you know,
as some of the youth say, in some countries, they go this is sick.
You know, that. I had, I went to the UK, and I was saying he goes, That's sick. Say Really? You mean that's bad, sir? Oh, that's very good.
It's really sick means good to see. Yes. When you say that sick, that means it's good.
I shall sign of the times, isn't it? The evolution of language? You know, when we were growing up, there was slang as well. And our teachers used to tease us they say, you know, when you guys grow up, I don't know what type of shocks you guys will be, you know what, what speeches will be given to your audiences, you know, all the slang words will be coming out. But so Hanalei didn't happen when we when we learned that they need to fix this up.
So they ran quickly to Halima. Obviously, she's in charge of him. This is, this is something which no one can imagine. So she went to her. And they said to her, or they went to her, and they said to her, that Mohammed has been killed. That's the first thing you think about somebody whose heart has been taken out, he's been killed. And they went to him. Obviously, they all ran haleema. And these boys went to him, and they saw that he had a discolored coloration of his skin was slightly discolored. And as said, and as the narrator of this heady phase, I used to see the mark of the stitchings on his chest, where they stitched his heart. I used to see it. Amazing, right? Ns was a
companion, he passed away very late. my memory serves me right. This is the hadith of nscn Malik, there was another ns, but this is the Hadith of the ns. That
passed away very late. And this is the ns that was
in the service of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam for several years, always looking after his affairs. And he says that I was in the service of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam for so many years. Not once did he ever tell me why did you do this? If I did it, or why didn't you do it? If I didn't do it?
Salama Herrera, he wasn't. This was him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have another
narration, which is considered acceptable as well. And this narration says that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I was being taken off by the women of Ben was adamant backer, we need Halima. So I went off with a son of has, along with some of our goats. And this is a sign that the scholars when they when they look at this narration, they say he was four years old when he's when his chest was cut. Why? They say because we cannot imagine the two year old or somebody younger than four years older than four years of age, actually looking after goats or sheep. Right. So the fact that in this narration, he says, we went out it wasn't just about playing, we also took this
the, the goats or the sheep out
to shepherd them. This is a sign that he was for. so in this situation, we have a specific thing. The first one said he went out to play, this one tells us that, that there was something extra than playing and that was also the fact that they were acting as shepherds to the flock, which means Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was around four years of age and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. He says Allahu alayhi wa sallam, we did not take any provisions with us. So I said, Oh, my brother Go and bring us some provision from our mother, meaning our foster mother. not his real mother. His real mother was Amina. She was in Makkah from our foster mother. So my brother went off
and I remained with the head, then, to wide beings appeared in the sky. They were flying. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam
sallallahu alayhi wasallam said
it was as if they were to eagles, as if they were two eagles, he says then one said to the other. Is it him? Panama? Imagine how vibrant this narration is. Right? A lot of adjectives in it. I mean, it's a lot of description. Is it him? So the other said yes. So they hastened immediately and took hold of me and threw me upon the ground on my back and then they split my chest and extract extracted two black coats from it. And one of them said to his companion, bring
ice water and he washed my insides with it. Then he said, Bring me snow water, and he washed my heart with it. Then he said, Bring me tranquility. And then he planted it in my heart, Lahore.
Allahu Akbar, Allah basically law he taught my inner corner.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says indeed it is with the remembrance of Allah that the hearts become tranquil.
In this duration, he says, this angel said, Bring me tranquility, and it was planted in the heart of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, he says, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then one of them said to his companion right now, so it up. So he sewed it up, and sealed it with the seal of prophethood. Then one of them said to the other, place him upon the scale, and place 1000 of his nation upon another scale, upon the other scale, to show the relevance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this globe. And on this earth, Allah subhanho wa Taala, His Messenger says, so I saw 1000 people above me, and I fear that some of them are going to fall upon me. And he said, If his whole nation
were weighed against him, he would out weigh them. They were having a conversation between themselves like doctors have when they're operating on you, you don't know you're sleeping. Right? You're under anaesthetic. They talking you don't know what the same way. were they talking about dinner last night and you think if you were awake, you'd be super scared. Same to Pamela, you're cutting my heart and talking about last night's dinner, casual conversation, right? Allahu Allah. I'm not a doctor. I don't know what they do. inshallah is more serious than that.
But what do you get from this, the angels are having a discussion here. Right? So he says, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is witnessing this. He says that they said, If his whole nation were weighed against him, he would outweigh them. And then they went off and left me Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I became very scared. And I went back to my mother and informed her of what I had experienced. So I wish that I had been mistaken for somebody else. He didn't know what happened to him. So he, he hoped you know, sometimes mistaken identity. Right? somebody knocks your door the authorities say I hope this is mistaken identity. Because I've done
nothing worthy of, of whatever you know of authorities knocking on my door, right? So insha Allah, Allah make this mistaken identity that what is done is done. Right insha Allah, so he went running, hoping this is mistaken identity. And
she told him, I entrust you to Allah protection. So she prepared a camel of hers for writing. Praise Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the saddle and road behind me until we reached my real mother Amina. Then she said, I have fulfilled my trust and my responsibility. And she told her what had happened to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, but she says this never alarmed. The mother of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
What will happen to a parent? Heart attack? Really? Are you serious? I think you having a delusion. What do you mean a heart was taken out put back in persons in front of me. Everything's looking fine. You show you you're not diluted, you know? What do they say? You know, when you fuzzy in the mind, right?
Right. I know she wasn't around.
And she said to Halima, that when he came out from me. I saw light with Shawn and review the palaces of Sham Soham Allah Subhana Allah the scholars have a bit of discussion regarding this
this light that came out of of Amina and which lit up the palaces of Sham and exactly when it happened, but this is what our discussion right now. The fact is, this is what she said. Right? In this particular narration, which means she was prepared to accept that this son or this child is a special one like iacobelli salaam led when use of Allah is Salaam was young, that this son is a special one.
Now, as we said according to the correct opinion, this happened with Allah salallahu alayhi wasallam was for right, for the reasons cited the fact that he was in the second generation we learned that he was actually acting as a shepherd to the hut. Right. There is another time in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam with his chest was open When was this?
During the Iran, Iran during the Mirage we have authentic and authentic narration that states that his chest again was opened
the chest of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, we learned many lessons from this incident. Let's let's take a few first
We learn, brothers and sisters, the preparation of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for prophecy. He was being prepared of everything that was happening, the most preparation. And we discussed in our last episode, that he was being prepared for prophecy before he was born because he was born as an orphan. So he was already receiving a life different to others. His experiences with different his maturity, or his levels of maturity, one was definitely greater than others, right. And this preparation continued, such as in this incident. Now, this teaches us something very important that if you and I want greatness, greatness, we don't want to be mediocre. We don't want
to be average. We don't want to be like everybody else. We want to have greatness, then, then you have to start early. It requires an early start.
Those who have kids, we have ambitions for our kids, we are allowed to have ambitions for our kids. Yes, they must make the major life decisions by you know, by themselves, you must guide them and equip them to make the decisions who should they they should marry, what profession they want to take what degree they want to study, we should guide them help them make the right decision. But the decision should be this but every parent does have some form of
wish and dream for the child. It could be you want a child to be a habit, it could be you want him to have extra special manners. It could be you want him to be so close to Allah, a child that tears for the sake of Allah. These are general ambitions these are ambitions that do not pollute the child's ability to be independent. In fact, it will always be good for the child to have this and this is important good character, especially my dear brothers and sisters. Before even becoming a half of the Quran. Many parents asked me we want our child to become a habit I say Why?
I want to understand what's your thought process.
Rather you teach him good manners. That's compulsory, becoming a habit isn't and if you can do both, then that's better. But I just want to bring your attention to something which is overlooked good manners. So Pamela, how many roofers do we have that don't have good manners or what area to build? They don't represent the Quran that they carry will not protect us And forgive us alone. Mr. They think they're doing good and they're getting sin they are receiving sins for it.
This is true brothers and sisters, you know, our scholars are meant to teach us that not every Vicar is a means of getting reward some Deacon you get sins for it because you've done it in a in an innovative way.
in a way that's considered to be there. Or you've done it for any for some other reason other than Allah. That's what I tell the brothers You know, sometimes you sitting in a gathering something happens and someone shouts took me and and everybody Allahu Akbar. I said the brothers Hold on. Why are you saying Allahu Akbar and why do you think this is just ro excitement? Are you remembering that you are remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala
and remembering Allah comes with Adam.
It has its added as well right? It has its added as long as you remember you having been doing it that's fine. Right?
It's important that we remind the oma so it doesn't just become fashion. Become suddenly becomes fashion we forget this is deca.
So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says many recites recites the Quran and the Quran curses them. I was gonna say they don't look after the correct recitation of the Quran, the Tajweed the muharraq they don't look after the message of the Quran. The Quran says Joakim salah and observe the salah and the following from the Salah. The Quran is calling you to good character and you have bad character May Allah protect Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kinda Hulu Al Quran. His character was the Quran. The Quran nurtured him. We know that in the month of Ramadan Subhana Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kinda Jordan that he was the best of people. He had the
greatest quality in his worship. He had the greatest quality in everything that he did. The Sahaba say, and in Ramadan, he was even better. If you thought no one could top it, he would top it even in Ramadan. And I pointed over this, my dear brothers and sisters, I've pondered over this because there's another generation which says that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Ramadan, he would revise the Quran with gibreel this was a mighty revision.
And we know he, his character was the Quran. He was nurtured by the Quran. So if he's revising the Quran with gibril Surely this is going to bring about a different level of excellence. Thus he was more charitable in Ramadan, even more kinda and so on and so forth. sallallahu alayhi wasallam right. So we ask Allah to protect us
being amongst the group that lacked diligence with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Coming back to the point you have ambition
As a parent, you want your child to be a half if not just an average half with a great half if not just to have average character, great character. When does it start?
When does it start? In the case of children?
When do you think?
before they're born? Yes, before you even got married. It starts by making dua
and then choosing the right spouse
asuma sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was being prepared before he was even born.
Take the lessons. This is Sarah. Let's learn. Let's ponder. Right? He was being nurtured before he was born a lot took his father away. We saying for you to instigate greatness in your child's life. It starts from before they born by making the choosing the right wife, naming them the correct name and starting young with them. From the first breath, start putting them on the way of greatness. You know, there's this famous study done by Anders Ericsson. It wasn't famous when he did when he did it. But a famous author, American author, by the name of Malcolm Gladwell, made this Have you heard of him? Malcolm Gladwell. He made this theory famous in his book called outliers, right? He made
this famous theory, this theory, this research of Anders Ericsson, famous in outliers, outliers. It's a book, it's a type of biography is studying different
personalities, people who became great, and he's trying to understand the secret for success. Right. And in it, he mentions, he mentions this study of Anders Ericsson. which states that for you to be excellent and great in what you do. You need to have practiced it for 10,000 hours.
Well, some people are thinking do I will live that long? Yes, you do.
You do. In sha Allah, Allah grant us Baraka in our life. 10,000 hours, right? Obviously, this is on average, right? I think, I think after outliers, I think many people, many books and blogs and articles that came out, in my humble view, misrepresented the study, because they started saying you need 10,000 hours period. And that's not true. differs from person to person. Obviously, some people less some people, no, but that's fine. On average, he's saying three is research. Right? You need a 10,000 hours to be the best. And they put it to around 10 years, 10 years of doing it.
10 years of doing it before you're a person of excellence, which means if you start from your child, by the time he's born by the age of 10, is going to be at somebody else is going to be the best in that field. So Pamela,
and we don't care about that study, because we have Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the best of examples and this is what we learned from first. Okay, so this is the first thing that we learned. Start early. It starts before you get married, even for our sisters, my dear sisters, you know, choose the right man. He doesn't have to be the man that can earn you a million dollars. It's got to be the man that can raise
a priceless family.
May Allah grant us the understanding. I mean, we also learn from this incident My dear brothers and sisters, the infallible nature of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the infallible, he was infallible. What was invaluable in in terms of reseller in terms of washy in terms of
releasing to us, the teachings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He never made a mistake. What he said to us was from Allah was from Allah. And the way he said it was exactly how it came to him. Because the angels operated on him. He was free from mistake in religion.
And he was free from having the ability to commit major sins free from it, we must believe it. This incident teaches us this is a clear so there's no mistake religion. And when we say there's no mistake in religion, we also say that there's nothing
that he was supposed to teach us that he forgot to teach us or did not release to us. Even from this angle. We say he was perfect, which means there's no room for me there.
There is no room for me there. There is no room for somebody to innovate something in the religion and start worshipping Allah in a certain way that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't do
because if you believe Muhammad Rasulullah I worship Allah based on this man's teachings, and you believe he was Muslim and infallible, especially in religion, there was no mistake. And no mistake also entails that he didn't forget to teach us anything or he and he didn't withhold anything from us. All this dictates
That you only worship Allah Subhana who Allah to Allah upon his way upon his way, they can be no better way than the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, la caja aku Allah subhanho wa Taala says Lafarge Canada coup de rasulillah. He was sweating Hashanah, indeed in the Messenger of Allah was a perfect example. A perfect example. For for who for the one who intends to align the hereafter. What do you intend in your bed? You intend Allah? What do you intend in your bed you intend to hear after Allah says you intend Allah and you intend to hereafter follow Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the perfect example. Allah says while we're Jeddah cabal and
Fahad, Allah revealed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we found you not upon complete guidance and we guided you, we found you searching, how to worship Allah if you didn't know how to Yes, you didn't commit adultery, you didn't consume alcohol, you didn't complete the carbonated. You didn't bury females alive. You didn't prostrate to idols, you didn't rely on him and you are under the care of Allah subhanho wa Taala and angels operated on you as you are growing up sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but you did not know how to worship Allah for her there. So we guided you and taught you how to worship Allah. We revealed to you a Quran Bismillah Becca levy Hannah.
That's why you see we need the Syrah also to know how to understand the Quran. It's wrong to interpret the i o or Jeddah Kabbalah.
And we Some people say we found you misguided This is incorrect, because while in the Arabic language carries the meaning of misguided, but here we understand the meaning in light of what we know from the Sierra. If Allah sent angels to operate on the heart of Muhammad Ali Abdullah Saleh AlLahi wa sallam, he was protected from his guidance from the word God
before he even attained the age of puberty, so he was never misguided. So we tweak the way we translate the idea and understand it will get a curveball and we found you not upon complete guidance. You are upon guidance, but not complete guidance for her there and we revealed to you and completed guidance for you. Thus, you and I, we only follow the way of Mohammed Abdullah Abdullah Saleh Allahu Allah cinema, Allah He, there's no better way for us. Allah wants us to worship Him, the way Allah wants to be worshipped, not how you feel, you want to worship Him, and how you feel you want to worship Him and how he feels he wants to worship Him and how she feels she wants to
worship You know,
how Allah wants to be worshipped, does not have a right to be worshipped, how he wants to be worshipped, indeed itas subhanho wa Taala. So we learn from this,
how we there has no place in,
in the Sharia, in this life of ours the life of a believer, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was infallible, and this refers to him being perfect. in delivering the message to us we also learned my dear brothers and sisters and this is an important lesson we boundaries of our intellectuality
many times University goers they have this confusion, because University feeds confusion into your mind you know, when you start studying all the sciences, objective morality, a priori and a priori type of knowledge and all these types of epistemology and all these different types of knowledge is lampstand which are not beneficial, only beneficial if you really need to refute people and understand it but it's not beneficial in terms of your of your belief, really, in terms of of tying you to Allah and making a brief perfect of Allah. There's no benefit in this knowledge.
that knowledge is in the Quran and the Sunnah Alhamdulillah
many a student asks,
What is the role of our mind in life? There's many things that don't make sense. They start questioning, they start questioning narrations of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
He starts, they start questioning it doesn't make sense. Right? I have three or four generations in my mind right now from impressionable people like some of the youth in the air, some of you in the audience, start asking questions this head it doesn't make sense. This idea doesn't make sense. How can it be?
We learn from this incident, the role of our intellectuality in this life, that you and I we have intelligence will have. But this intelligence is governed by the Sharia.
By the sherea
sherea borders. The Sharia is the framework.
We use our intellectuality within
This framework, yes, we have emotions. And then we have intelligence, and intellectuality. And then we have the Sharia. Our scholars teach us that we
use our, our emotions in light of our intelligence. No, some people, some people say, think with your head on with your heart. Right? That's what they're talking about. They talking about that. Think with your head not meaning, use your intelligence, not your emotion. That's true. And on top of that, we say,
use the Sharia and not your intelligence.
Is that clear?
Is that clear? And this is where belief comes in.
This is where belief comes in. Belief is believe in the unseen.
It doesn't have to make sense to you. How can a man's heart be taken out and I'm a doctor, I'm a medical students, this is practically impossible. This can never happen. This is not scientifically proven.
This, this and that. And that. It doesn't matter. My dear brother, what we have is an authentic narration. And the best person to have walked the face of this earth said that it happened summit in our Panda, it happened. We have listened and we have believed.
Is that clear. But this doesn't mean that we just believe without evidence. Here I'm saying even if the message goes against what your intelligence tells you, we believe it because of evidence. I'm not giving you the Christian argument because the Christians say one plus one plus one equals one and say but that doesn't make sense. They say just believe it. That's belief. Now I'm not giving you that narrative. I'm saying it doesn't make sense, believe it but believe it because there's evidence.
There's evidence as clear as the sun that this happened to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Right. This came to us in an authentic narration. No, there's no dispute in the chain, that this happened to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said the hadith of innocence, a Muslim This is authentic, right? It happened? We have evidence. So we say here, we will not do a Malakal, we will not use our mind in front of the jury and deny the Sharia.
Do you understand? Otherwise there will be no guidance if everybody was left?
Or if the mind was the be be the be all and the ends all? Why would Allah and prophets? Why would Allah review books? We all have minds? It's enough, right or wrong? So is that clear? brothers and sisters? If yes, shippon confuses us about a certain point that look, this is not technically possible. That's obviously technically possible, but it is still possible in a non technical way. You know what I'm saying there technically shouldn't happen.
It shouldn't, but it did. So none technically you can
If you ever faced a situation you hear a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Or you come across an ayah in the Quran, and the teaching is something that is not common. Your intelligence has not fathom this before. Your job is to submit this this is this lab which is Islam submitting to the will of Allah. Why? Because this is evidence, the Quran, I believe in this this is true without doubt. And this heavy This is true without doubt, the evidence is correct. Whereas there's no role for my mind here. I will follow the evidence. Belief with evidence This is not the Christian narrative is believe. Believe it doesn't make sense but believe and they'll tell you that
is believe that's how we know the believers from the disbelievers. You have to believe in this nonsensical thing. As rob the person said, the nonsense thing, the nonsensical thing, right.
They say believe it we say it doesn't make sense, but it has evidence thus believe it is that clear? Excellent. So this is a very important lesson that we learn. Then brothers and sisters after this incident, we have the incident of the death of the mother of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And, and this will law he
you know our love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we learning about his life This affects us, it affects us, we learning about the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam you know, test after test after test and now you losing your mother and listen to this. Listen to how it happened. Amina decided to take Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasallam to Medina and she went with his cara, remember the carrier from the beginning. Baraka, her name was Baraka. So they went on this journey to Medina and she was she wanted to visit the grave of her husband we know as we discussed Abdullah the father of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he got sick on his way back from Sham
and he passed away in Medina. He went to take rest in Medina with his uncle's his maternal
uncles. So he went there and he passed away. So she wanted to visit the grave. Her son is six years old. Let me teach him about his father. So she took him with and they went to Medina, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam had fond memories of his mother and that trip to Panama. He had fond memories of the law when he was six years old, salallahu alayhi wasallam. When they got there,
she got ill.
she passed away, she passed away. When did she pass away, on the way back, not in Medina, and not in Makkah, a place in between, which makes this even more difficult. It makes this even more difficult, because imagine this young boy is with his mother, and his mother's passed away. There is no uncles, from your maternal or paternal to pull you away from the scene as a young boy, you know what we do with kids, we protect them, we blind them from the difficulty, something happens, we take them away, take them to another room, not so we try and cheat them. We take them away when I say cheat them or cheat them in the battery. But you know what I'm saying to take the attention,
transfer the attention to something else. There was no one to do this for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he witnessed his mother passing away salallahu alayhi wasallam. Right. And that is why
when you go further into Syria, you see during the soul of who they via the incident that davia when they had the the Treaty of for the BIA, he went to visit the grave of his mother. And he cried, and the Sahaba of the Allah who and whom cried as well. He cried sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the Sahaba of the Allah who and whom cried as well. And he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I took permission from Allah to visit the grave of my mother. And he allowed me and I took permission from Allah, or I sought permission from Allah to seek forgiveness from my mother, and he didn't permit me to Han Allah. He was a true submitter sallallahu alayhi wa sallam submitted to the will of Allah
subhanho wa Taala he submitted to the world of his creator subhanho wa Taala.
And he cried,
and the people with him cried sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what are the Allahu anhu adjumani
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam My dear brothers and sisters becomes an orphan for a second time.
Six years after his birth, he becomes an orphan for the second time.
And this is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a special affection with orphans. He had an affection for orphans, from both religion. Because it was nothing he said was from himself. Allah says what am I going to put
in Who? You have nothing that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said was from himself, everything which he said was revelation. And he taught us amazing things about he taught us amazing things about
the orphans. And looking after the orphans, this was religion. But our scholars say it was also experience because he experienced being an orphan twice in his life. And that is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passionately said that myself, and the care of an orphan will be like this in gender, and he put his two fingers together. So Panama, you want close proximity to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam you wish to have to have him sallallahu alayhi wasallam as your neighbor and what a neighbor would you have?
You wish to have him as your neighbor sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is the way
and are carefully ativa. And we're carefully a team.
And our cafeteria team Katie
passionately said he will be with me in general like this, because he knows how it was to be an orphan.
And that is all once when someone went to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in complaint of a hot heart.
masala who decided this is acceptable. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to wipe your hand over the heads of
Expand Allah. Wipe your hand over the hairs or over the head of an orphan.
So soften your heart and you will do a mighty good to this child. Imagine this orphan looking at the children. These children have their parents rubbing their heads, playing with them, teaching them how to ride a bicycle, taking them to bed at night, buying them gifts, picking them up carrying them throwing them taking them to the park. He sees all this Subhanallah indeed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hurries
la mina Rahim sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was concerned about us. He was gentle with the Ummah, even with the orphans, especially with the orphans brothers and sisters are like brothers and sisters, we have young boys and girls in the oma
the desert deserve to be adopted.
We have you know what's happening in Syria?
We have young children's parents being annihilated.
Do you know what's happening in Palestine? You know what's happening in places in Africa.
And they don't even have the systems that are known to us in the West systems to take care of orphans.
This is where you and I have to add, if we can't at least feel the need to. If you feel I don't have I'm not physically able to my my lifestyle. Allah who
should try your best to to convince yourself but if you really feel at least have the compassion, as I told you, in our other sitting, at least feel the desire to sponsor an orphanage, at least feel the desire to go visit an orphanage and wipe your hand over the head of orphans feel it brothers and sisters, your love of Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasallam dictates this. Our love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dictates this. This is the owner of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam not what the news channels are putting out there. And what they say and they say and they say about us.
This is exam This is Ana will law one great change to come to the UK and look after the orphans. You want great change to come to the oma go look after the widows. Look at the Sahaba and how they were with the widows without them knowing they were they were means of provision for them. without them knowing sustenance was coming Allah was using the Sahaba for them. today. We have no concern. No we can't take a second wife. Our first wife will kick us out of the house. That That might be true. That might be the case but who said you still can't help them? Would your wife deny you assisting them financially? No. So why haven't you? So I tell the brothers The only all the joking around

You know secondly, if your wife was here, you wouldn't say this discussion. And even if she allowed you I don't think you would do it. Allah who are
men of you, men of you. We say I say to them, look at the end of the day whatever your circumstance this widows that you can assist
and your wife will support you doing it Why don't you do it?
Why don't we do it brothers and sisters is our priorities Mahara Kabira pickle Karim Allah He Allah is saying all mankind Moroccan Arabic al Karim, what has put you in a deception of Allah, Who is Karim what is put you in a deception of your deen what is put you in a deception of the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam what has made you deny his character his message his way What happened to you?

Who men risk.
Women only do a U turn in Allahu wa Rosa.
Medina was It is Allah who is the provider The only provider the potential provider, the one who provides for you and continuously provides for you subhanho wa Taala what has happened to us My dear brothers and sisters,
I introduce you to the Sierra of the best person to have walked the face of this earth Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This was the message we have the grant is the understanding. I mean,
we learn also brothers and sisters from this, that we are allowed to become sad. We are allowed to cry when we experience loss. We have what is called a loss of LGB Leah human nature, human nature. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cried, as you've just heard, he cried, it's allowed.
And when his son passed away, Ibrahim he also cried.
When he buried him, we'll come to that in sha Allah. Allah was testing His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and preparing him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He cried. We are allowed to tear. We are allowed to cry. We mustn't stop people from crying. It's human nature to cry. It's good to cry. But what you shouldn't do is deny Allah subhanho wa Taala. What you shouldn't do is utter words of Cofer. What you shouldn't do is cry in a cover way. When I say cover, I mean, an ungrateful way where you'd like denying a lie and blaming Allah subhanho wa Taala. Will you start wailing and tearing your clothes and throwing things around them? when people try to console you push them away
and say leave me and so on and so forth. Will you become annoyed
controllable. This is what you shouldn't do. But should you cry in a civilized manner? Yes, you should. You should. And perhaps it is good for you. It is human nature. It is human nature. It's good for your mind. It's good for the chemical balance of your brain and your emotion. Right?
We learn this from this incident in the Sierra. Then after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his mother passed away. Allah subhanho wa Taala inspired his grandfather, Abdulmutallab to take care of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And Abdul muttalib. Allah placed in his heart such great love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that is that it is said it wasn't even seen from him with his sentence. He used to have a mat that would be placed in the shade of the Kaaba, and we know his his authority. With regards to the carbine, its affairs, he would have a mat and no one was allowed to sit on it.
But Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would come sit and when his sons or the uncles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam would come remove him because they knew you're not allowed to sit with with the with the grandfather or with our Father in this spot, he would, he would prevent them from doing it and say indeed This boy
is bless it is praised. Leave him
and we learn from this the grandfather grandson relationship.
Has anyone seen it? Grandfather grandson relationship? How many of us have children here
and your father's alive Mashallah Allah preserve him in in his obedience? I mean, how is your father with your child and how was he with you?
Different right. It's, it's amazing. Well, I I have two young boys Well, I'll have one four and a half one is one and a half. And my father with them realize a different man. I never saw this man growing up. Not that he wasn't good to me Allah. He was good, but it's even he's even more amazing. With this is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when I when I when I read this in the Sierra and I thought about this, this incident how the sons weren't allowed to sit with the grandson was allowed. I said Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, this is from human nature. It's Allah who places this special love in the heart of the grandparents for the grandchildren, the grandparents. You know, the parents
might say, You know what? Don't feed my child's ice cream. Right? Totally divisive. Coke, don't coke. No, no, you shouldn't have coke juice, preservatives, no juice. Right. Parents have left meaning the son, the parent of the child, who is the son of the, the the, of the grandfather. He's saying, These are the instructions. What happens when the parent goes grandfather? Just have some ice cream here.
Right? You want some coke? sips of coke. It's okay. It's okay. You know your father used to drink cocoa so he turned out okay.
Right. This is what happens, isn't it? grandfathers and grandmothers? Look at the places that come Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. do certain things upon Allah. Let me count my presence. My whole life and count the presence in the first year of this child is more than what I ever received. Once in deride you.
Allah places a special, a special love in the hearts of the grandparents. For the grandchild. We learn this from the story now after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam enjoyed the special care but only for two years. Because Two years later, when he was eight years old, Allah decreed that his grandfather passed away. And when that happened, Allah subhanho wa Taala inspired
the grandfather before passing away to leave instruction that after his passing, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will go to the real brother of Abdullah who was the father of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abdullah, and Abu Talib they had the same father and a mother. So it was decreed that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to him and he loved Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam so much Allah put love in his heart for him that it is said he never left the house except for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he never went to sleep except next to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he would never traveled on a journey except with Rasulullah
sallallahu alayhi wasallam despite him being so poor, and despite him having such a big family, he had such a big family and there in the his history books recording being extremely poor. But even despite this, he would do so. And
he would become one of the greatest supporters of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We will learn more about him in the upcoming episodes in sha Allah because he supported Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam for more than 40 years. if my memory serves me right, he passed away 10 years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became a prophet when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam was around 50 so that means he supported him
For more than 40 years law occur in Java tomorrow when we come back we will learn
the next incident in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and that is the incident of the monk
that was found during one of the travels of aboot Bali but as we said he always took Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam with everything correct said My dear brothers and sisters is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's perfect and any mistakes are from myself and she upon and I seek Allah subhanho wa Taala as forgiveness I love you all for the sake of Allah and I appreciate you being very very punctual and

Some of us are coming from out, Masha Allah Subhana Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make this a means of us truly grow or growing true love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and reviving a Sunnah with every lesson that we take together. I mean, we Allah gathers here during the upcoming nights I mean or sallallahu wasallam or Baraka, Allah, Vienna, Muhammad Ali, he was a big marine Subhana Allah who will be humbling Subhana Allah humble, be humble decondition to Allah, Allah hi land, Mr Furukawa to bhulekh salam o Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
