welcome to episode number
12 of our series, a blast from the past Sierra in the 21st century. We're going to continue today My dear brothers and sisters, with three days after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became a prophet yesterday we we discussed two phenomenons First, the first phenomenon was he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam becoming a prophet. And this phenomenon marked another phenomenon. And that was the beginning of Revelation, because he became a prophet with revelation descending. Right. So this is the interesting element when we talk about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam becoming a prophet because him becoming a prophet mark the beginning of Revelation. And yesterday Subhanallah we got
stuck on it Cora not got stuck in that we have nothing to say there was so much to say that the entire session went whilst we discussed it, which means today, we will continue with lessons that we can extrapolate and deduce from him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam becoming a prophet and as we said, yesterday, we entered a new phase
in terms of our episodes, because the previous episodes, detailed incidents and events from the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Before Prophethood before Prophethood, we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us Baraka in our time, and in our energies and help as you can see, I'm running a slightly thin voice still. And I pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala that it remains so that we can continue learning inshallah,
as a recap, yesterday, we discussed one important point that I just want to make sure
fit through to you all, we discussed the revelation of the Quran, how did we say the Quran was revealed?
How remember who said it was in two phases? How many phases? two phases? Who can list these phases for us?
Yes, so we had a wholesome revelation from the preserve tablets, to the house of honor, which is on the first heaven as per the teaching of even our best or the Allahumma. And we said this happened in the month of Ramadan, and on the night of power, and then the second revelation was from the house of honor to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam over the course of 23 years, or just over 23 years, as per the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this was a very important footnote that we shared, because it helps clear the fog that some of us have when we discuss the ayah in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala Anastasia Ravana lady on Zilla feel Quran that the month of Ramadan was the
month in which the Quran was revealed, as well as the ayah in zelner, who feel a little other that we reviewed the score on on the night of power
movies on brothers and sisters. We also learned from the lengthy Hadith we discussed yesterday citing the beginning of revelation that this Quran was not from Hamlet sallallahu alayhi wasallam where do we learn this from? We learn this from the fact that when jabril grabbed him three times sallallahu alayhi wasallam and squeezed him till he felt that he could not breathe
He Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam answered back saying that and a Bukhari that I am not a reader, I am not a reciter I am unlettered, this was the reality of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he himself cited himself as being unlettered. Now, we see some refutations happening online. Right. The certain people who believe that if you say Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was unlettered, then this is being disrespectful to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And this is incorrect. He himself is saying, I am unlettered, what we are citing is a fact, out of love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that we be true to what his reality was, and he sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam told us that his reality was that he was admitted, and this was not something uncommon. Right, there were few people who traverse the ranks. And we're known for the abilities to read and side poetry, and so on and so forth. But it wasn't uncommon for people to be unlettered. At the time, it wasn't uncommon. And remember, during our very first sessions together, we said that there were civilizations that existed. And citing these, this group of people in the Middle East as we know it today, to be as a civilization, one could argue against it, one could argue against it. If we look at the definition of civilization. If we look at the definition of civilization, one
could argue that this word cannot be applied to those people in Makkah, and its surrounding areas to actually call them a civilization. And it is said that they live between two civilizations, the Romans and the Persians. And that was the earlier sessions that we shared together. So this is not being disrespectful to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is from being truthful, to his history, truthful to who he was sallallahu alayhi wasallam so he said, Man,
we learn from this that this Quran was not from him. This Quran was not from him. And this refutes those who says that he learned this from previous scriptures that he got his hands on sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during his travels when he went for trade, as we cited him trading with the slave boy of Khadija, the Allahu Allah, whose name was Mesa, they engaged in some trade, and they traveled to other lands. And also those who say that he learned this from the hero, the famous monk in the story that we cited early and dedicated a session towards that particular incident. So the Quran is not from Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It is a revelation from Allah.
via a mighty angel jabril Allah His salam, the entire process is so powerful, it's free from any mistake happening in terms of this revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Allah subhanho wa Taala exonerates gibreel at a salon from any blame and teaches us the mighty nature of this angel and also exonerates Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from any blame teaching us that he was infallible and Allah said 1 million people in Who do you have that he never said anything from himself. Everything he said was revelation protected revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you and I together discussed the definition of
my assume and being infallible in previous sessions. For those who missed it, please revise our previous episodes. Allah subhanho wa Taala even in his book teaches us in many Enya that this Quran is not from Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam both directly as well as indirectly in terms of the indirect is that we say Allah subhanho wa Taala saying, and if Lam Meem then he can kita Alif Lam wa kilka. Yet, Allah subhanho wa Taala reverse refers to the Quran and it is using
words that denote something coming from afar from afar. kilka and vaniqa in the Arabic language, are known as pointing words we use to reference things using these words, right if I want to say this is my phone, I say Hi, Joe, why don't I use the term hatha to denote that it's close to me. But if it's far away, I say that because that phone to denote that it's it's far away, Allah subhanahu wa Jalla refers to his book as then he can kita then he can keytab nothing in the Quran is access to requirement if Allah Subhana who has a Delica Some people ask, why did Allah say that deca when the Quran is between our hands, the Quran is coming out from the mouth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi
wasallam it's close. Why did Allah
Delica Why did Allah say silica yet? Those are the I act as if it's coming from afar. The reason is because it has come from a low food from the preserved tablet. And Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to his book as tanzeem as something that has been revealed, revealed, and something that has come from above, not from within, not from close proximity. And this is an indirect way of understanding that the Quran is not from Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Rather this Quran is from Allah subhanho wa Taala or Buddha, Allah, Allahu, Allah had a solid Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah May Allah
subhanho wa Taala we also let my dear brothers and sisters, that seeking knowledge begins with one mighty phrase.
And that phrase is Bismillah
In the name of Allah, I do this in the name of Allah.
I start this In the name of Allah, I practice this In the name of Allah, because the first Revelation says, ikura, this miracle lady holla, read in the name of your Lord, who created you, this Milla and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us that anything that is void of Bismillah is cut off,
cut off cut off from what cut off from blessings cut off from Baraka. And we know today how we complain that our time lacks blessings, and our wealth lacks blessings, and our activities like lack blessings, and our knowledge lacks blessings. For you to learn knowledge properly, it has to start with Bismillah and for you to do anything properly, it has to start with Bismillah In fact, saying Bismillah stops you doing haram
stops you doing Haram, our teachers used to tell us that have a habit of saying Bismillah and if there's something that you cannot say Bismillah before doing the know that you should not be doing it.
If you No one can say this will have if we're doing an aroma. Not so can you say Bismillah and backbite
you can't, can you say Bismillah and sign a rebar transaction. You can't there's no Baraka that's going to come in this it's hard. It's obsolete, as far as the Sharia is concerned. So having a habit of saying Bismillah keeps you on the straight and narrow. It keeps you doing that which is supposed to be doing no one can consume anything what I'm saying Bismillah you can't nobody can light a cigarette saying Bismillah Can you do that? yourself you know this is wrong.
Your natural disposition does not allow this
except if you somebody may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from becoming that way you so far. Will you can you so far often swerved off the path that is considered to be the straight and narrow that you are in a situation called see and confusion that you don't know right from wrong. But rightfully nobody can lie to secret and say Bismillah nobody, they know it's hubie and they know that there's no Bismillah for Hubby, that which is impure, and that which is harmful. And from the ways of the messengers you Hello Dakota you bet was to make Halloween for you that which is good. Well you haven't removed ecoman harbeth and they made forbidden for you that which was filthy and
We also learned brothers and sisters the methodology of dealing with somebody in distress. Where do we learn this from? From Khadija Ravi? Allahu Allah.
Khadija of the Allahu Allah.
Allah gather us with our mother in Jana mean, she dealt with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in such an amicable manner.
This is a person in distress, heart beating violently seen something of the unseen, something unnatural.
Something you and I wouldn't believe.
And he goes to his wife shivering, saying Cover me cover me as we saw.
But we see how she dealt with the situation. She didn't ask for details.
She calm the situation down first. She attended to the needs of the person in distress. First.
She understood that the person is more important than the point and we're going to come to that as well.
You and I would probably say this person has become insane. My husband has become insane. What is he talking about? seeing an angel of this magnitude of this many wings and so on and so forth, and then it fits into a small gate. We know a God in the Arabic language refers to a narrow cave. The calf refers to a spacious cave.
Soraka Allah refers to a narrow cave.
She taught us the methodology of how to deal with people, how to calm people down.
And how to calm the situation down. Today Subhanallah we see people with a lot protect, an accident happens. And the person is in shock. And this person will say to them, I used to always tell you wear your seatbelt. You don't listen. Is that the time to say that? Yeah, we know. Is that the time to say that? A person is in shock. So Pamela, is this the time to say these things? No. This is not the time to say these things. Every situation has a place and moment and this is from wisdom CLL lithium battery. We'll walk the lithium battery, doing the right thing.
The way it should be done at the right time in the right place. This is hikma This is putting everything in its place. This is from being wise, we calm the situation down. We understand the person is more important than the point let's not lose the person in the process. When the time is right we will deal with it. And this is what she did. Ravi Allahu Allah, she said golden words. I told you when we when we studied the husband, wife relationship in the previous episodes, that she said words which should be written in gold and in fact they are planted in the history books in gold even though there is a loose ink. She says Well, why are you z con la Who? calming the situation
down? I don't want to find out details. But I'm telling you by Allah whatever happened, don't be concerned. Allah subhanho wa Taala will never disgrace you. And then she started praising the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we discussed this yesterday What she said
calm the situation down. Bring some sanity. In a circumstance that seems insane.
And when she calmed down, he spoke sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He spoke sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We also have my dear brothers and sisters how not to act in haste.
Elijah Tomita Chopin. And we've discussed this time and time again, acting in haste is from shavon. The Islamic narrative and discourse is to be people have patience. And she was patient. Some people some handler they want to know now and now what happened? What happened? Cover me cover me. Listen, what happened? Okay, I'll cover you. But first, tell me what happened.
So some people are, we act in haste. We need to calm down and learn patience. Again, understand the person is more important than the point. Put your curiosity to bed for a while. And understand there's a person who needs your help. She was patient of the Allahu anhu. We also have my dear brothers and sisters that when we have an issue, only speak it to the person who loves you and sincerely cares for you. Don't go out and start hanging out your dirty laundry. Especially issues between husbands and wives. Because husbands and wives forgive each other. But people will not forget what you said. They will not forget. You go and say something about your husband. Tomorrow
you'll forgive him. Your friend will remember what you said about him. You say something about your wife outside. She will fuck you. You will forgive her tomorrow. But a person will remember you. There's a stain in terms of your spouse that you've left outside. You forget it, that stain, you will almost see it, but other people will.
If you have an issue, go to your spouse speak to your spouse, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went straight home. And this is a lesson of how a female I'm reinforcing and re consolidating what we discussed in the previous episode. We spent an entire hour one and a half hours right about the home how we learned about the home from the marriage of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam to Khadija rhodiola. Who and I think it was episode nine.
We learn how she made that house and abode and a home that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had no second thoughts. By default. I mean, a person who is in such a state of shock, they don't think so which means he went this Allahu Allah he was selling by default. That's where his natural instinct and human nature was to be.
directed him to be DC this, which means she had a history of being there for him. A History of supporting him. A History of loving him. Probably
doesn't happen overnight. You know that it doesn't happen overnight. He for you to have default. When you are in a state of shock. You do things you can't explain. But you know, it's from your subconscious right there.
which are written about the subconscious and the adaptive subconscious and how to tap into this unmanned memory of the brain that goes unused. It's a very powerful place. It has a lot of our functions, a lot of our defaults. When you in shock, you stop you stop functioning based on your prefrontal cortex and natural consciousness. Right.
Some default mechanism takes over. So the fact that he ran home without thinking shows the reality of the home of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And what a mighty female Khadija robiola who was so brothers and sisters, do not hang your laundry out to dry your dirty laundry, keep it between people and have patience sometimes, you know, you don't have to immediately escalate a matter and start calling your parents and and calling his parents are you calling her parents when it happens?
Not every problem from the beginning requires this kind of intervention and arbitration. Right? We learned this from the CEO of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We also learned brothers and sisters,
how to be selfless,
And we lead this again from hydro Viola Juana. So not only did she calm the situation of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam down and we also lead by the way before I move on how to be active and proactive, not reactive, reactive, sometimes we need to be reactive. But most of the time, we should be proactive because being proactive events, a catastrophe and prevention is better than cure. In the Sharia, we have a principle or rough. Oh, Lamanna defer. Prevention is better than cure. This is a fifth principle. The scholars of faith have discussed this are rough, I will mean a death.
When you are proactive, you avert a catastrophe from happening. And that is the better usage of resources. Because when the catastrophe and calamity strikes, and you have to deal with it, you don't have enough time you have to act immediately. So the mistakes are going to happen. How you use your finances, how you use your resources, right? Especially if you don't have experience in dealing with with with reactive matters with with disasters. But preventing it allows you time allows you to run the risk analysis allows you to run due diligence, right? allows you to understand the micro and the macro. This time you preventing a disaster from happening.
We learned this from Khadija mahana
for not only did she come Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam down she was proactive in that she worked the steps forward. So don't worry. I have somebody one of my relatives, we will go ask him about what you have seen.
You see, proactive, calm the situation and then work the way forward amazing woman or law or law Hey, I know we want we wish we named our daughters Khadija right?
Shall Allah give you another daughter today ma Khadija give us all I mean,
amazing woman will lie. If only we pointed, I told you the series is FIFA Sierra. We don't want to be storytelling and have them. There's a lot of theories out there. Let's have
pitstops with these events. And let's try and ponder. And as I've told you, what I share with you is a drop in the ocean what I leave out is much more sometimes because the audience is not the right audience for it. And sometimes because we just can't so humanly possible, given the time that we have, I've been confined to 45 minutes and I take an hour every day and sometimes one hour 20 minutes. We Allah reward the brothers for being patient with me, man I mean,
so Khadija, the Allahu anhu was proactive. She worked the way forward she spoke to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about what
we also learned my dear brothers and sisters, for those who ponder, how not to blow matters out of proportion.
This is a common human trait, especially today in the 21st century. And we're talking about lessons from this era in the 21st century.
This is a common problem.
We globalized issues, until we feel is beyond our ability to swap them out.
This is what we do. We blow it out of proportion. You can have the job of the loved one and she's hearing something she's never heard in her life. And she was 15 years older than Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So she's seen life longer than him.
But is she blowing matters out of proportion now.
In that our brothers and sisters, in our organizations, in our corporate companies
in our schools as committee members
Take a deep breath and take a step back. Don't be quick
to become claustrophobic. start blowing matters out of proportion.
Having knee jerk reactions to your management, your management style, start blurting out things firing people, hiring people shifting things, take a step back, take a deep breath, we can, let's see, let's see if we can play a part in stopping this, this problem from spilling over.
There's a story of a young boy
that was once on the beach, the water or the high tide didn't come in.
Or it came in and then dissipated quickly until several starfish were left on the beach. 10s or hundreds Allah knows best. Now we know starfish. If the out of water what happens to them.
They dry up. Right? There's a little boy, little boy is picking up the starfish and throwing them one by one into the water. throwing them one by one into the water. So
so he's throwing starfish back into the water. This is what he's doing.
So this corporate tycoon person comes to me and says, What are you doing young man? Some throwing the starfish in the water? So they don't die? It is but there's so many starfish.
What's the point you're not going to get all the starfish.
So while he's talking, this young boy is holding a starfish in his hand.
And this person is saying
but benefit are you causing you wasting time you're not going to get them all in?
So he looked at his starfish in his hand and he threw it in the water. And he told the man, the corporate man, the knowledgeable man. Go ask that starfish what he thinks of what I'm doing.
Because that starfish was saved, right? So we can make an impact even if it's more we can we shouldn't globalize matters, such that we cause ourselves to become claustrophobic and shut out, especially in this day and age brothers and sisters. We know Islamophobia we know
people who are Muslims, misrepresenting Islam.
They misrepresent Islam, becoming on the media and giving messages that are live Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was here, Allah knows best.
He would shut these messages down. They don't conform to the way of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in his messenger
This is the time when we need to stop globalizing and just remaining passive and as people who know and know that we know and know what's right from wrong need to speak out and educate the oma
that this fringe type of messages that come out from Muslims who have become misguided does not represent Islam. Islam is what's in the Quran. And what is the cinema Tareq to fecal matter in Temasek to be length of the Luba de abeta, Kitab. Allah, he wasn't that I have left with you two things. If you hold steadfast upon them both, you will never ever go astray. The Book of Allah and my son, this is what he said.
I am shocked. I'm shocked at some of the youth and their thought processes at the moment without going deeper into the discussion because it's beyond the scope of this class. But I am absolutely shocked that it will lie.
Firstly, it's a sign of, of the times and how our youth are switched on. But secondly, how vulnerable they are, and how gullible they are, and how
the internet has brought that which is far closer. And they read and accept anything they read irrespective of source. We have to educate our children, brothers and sisters. This is the time and we discussed this yesterday we'll talk about and I said How many times can you listen to talks about being a good husband and being a good wife and being a good in law and don't be an outlaw?
And so on In how many times do we want to see half? Let's learn that with gift gives us
Eman boosts daily, how by learning through knowledge. But we need to stop plucking at the trees and start working on the roots.
Remember that statement I shared with you in the early episodes.
So much let's see how we spent 1000s of dollars this year. Why? Because he's a famous chef. He folds up the restaurant to come and talk about what same topics.
Not saying it's not important, but as we said yesterday, there has to be a balance between knowledge and naseeha.
If all the talks are naseeha What's going to happen? Well, I came across a brother and my dad was a young
Boy, young boy, he tells me himself. He goes, You know what? I
was a great follower of the Facebook chefs. And he mentioned to me, he says, I listened to every talk of this every talk of
why did you listen to the talks is is because they speak lay, the message is lay
usually excited might say in Sierra Nevada, you know that we don't know that book that's we don't want those talks.
He goes, I was a walking talking first and the jokes these mesh is this, the speakers did and so on. And there's no blame to them. They're doing that that are everybody is doing the Dow is the problem is the community that has no vision in the community, when we when we invite mesh if we just invite the same people to do the same thing. As I said, yesterday, we beat the same message out of a different box.
He says, You know what? I was walking, talking, walking, talking. These videos, this is what they would say the jokes, the statements, they everything walking, talking, people used to think at school, I'm a chef. But it's just sit and watch these talks. Mashallah, that's good. That's good. But what happened to him? He says, I almost fell into atheism.
Or, in fact, I would have considered myself an atheist. He says in class, there was a debate about the presence of God. And naturally, I was putting
naturally I'm walking talking
version of YouTube, of that of that on YouTube, the biggest deal on YouTube, right? He says, I was put into a class. I was put into the team that argued for God. And I was battered down with arguments I had no response for, until I started doubting myself for months. And then he came to my house in Dubai. And he did ask a question that's on my site, quote, I have this boy because he's young boy, and he put up with a negotiation. I was teaching surah Yusuf. And he said, Chef, can you tell me about objective morality? Allahu Akbar, how old are you young lad. He was 14 was on objective morality. He was confused. He's been hearing these things.
Now, he says, Stop listening to those talks didn't benefit, but didn't meaning they did benefit me. But I needed a balance. Those talks were not everything. So I'm telling you, brothers and sisters, you know, when we talk about talking that you don't need the big ship the names to the name of the chef to be the biggest thing on the banner. Right? I'm repeating because we have new faces in the audience. I like that banner the the future of food and clothing, the topic is bigger than the name of the speaker.
The topic denotes the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam that should be enough to take you out of your home.
That should be enough. Look the person out my teachers used to tell me and this is famous amongst the pious predecessors, a region you will have
will have library are of the region.
People are known by what they say if it conforms to the Quran and the Sunnah.
And the truth is not known by the one who says it. It's not that this person said it, so it must be the truth. No, no, no, no, no. We benchmark what he said against what the Quran and the Sunnah says. If it's good, we accept it. If it's not, we reject it. Right? I want to take yesterday's session in please go back and revise it is online.
And I'm speaking from my heart I love you all for the sake of Allah. Again, I'm not saying it's wrong. I'm saying the application is wrong. The mesh is it's the right to teach. And every share has is tied, every propagator has his style, but you as the community understand what you need.
You need more in the naseeha Yes, we did not see how do you understand when I say the car, I mean the generic topics of how to how to be a good husband and and how to respect your parents that the generic This is important. But you will get there if you took solid in the first place. You wouldn't need someone to come tell you to come clip your leaves if your roots were in order.
I'm shocked at the statement of some of the youth here about events in Iraq at the moment and they and they thought processes about it.
It needs to be sorted out. And that's why in the in the Juma who said you need to start going to lead the book of Eman in the book of faith and go find a trustworthy, knowledgeable chef and say, You know what, this book from Sahil Buhari tissue to me keytab on a man teach it to me guitar will teach it to me. Yes, it sounds boring. Kitab on a man. You know, as we said yesterday, the names have to have to be modified. Right? I told that that's true. When I came here, let me say for the brothers that were not here yesterday. I told him I said what are we planning I said Fukushima is a shift that won't Fukushima nobody will come
blast from the past. Yes.
People will come.
Let's, let's get cut all the nonsense out. Right? Let's understand this, this element doesn't need us we need it. And this element has an aura and importance is either you get on the bandwagon bandwagon,
or you stay behind. It has an aura and importance respected. It's the inheritance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The fact that you love him, should push you towards that knowledge, because that's the closest thing you have to him, because that's what he left behind. That's what he left behind.
So Hannah law, I'm amazed by the people who say, you know, this was the slipper of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he said, This museum, and this is the hair and so on and so forth. And we are you from the suit of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that which is dearer than his slipper? Subhanallah that was revealed to him by Allah subhanho wa jal and he left behind, touch it and you've touched him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you want to prove the cloak of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pulled the knowledge. That's what he left behind. You want to run with him? sallallahu alayhi wa sallam run with his end up running with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam yoncheva sitting with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sit with his you'll have a city with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam inshallah This is a city with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Metaphorically, of course, but you understand what I'm saying?
We are like others with him in gentlemen. I mean, I mean, so I was telling the young impressionable youth go and find a teacher to teach to keep tabs on him and and and ketoprofen This is the time when you learn what's right for what's wrong. And stop reading social media telling you this is how it is and this is how it isn't theory is popping up from everywhere. As I said, in the hood, from every Muhammad useeffect for say, everybody's is giving their views. No, go and learn what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam his view was, we sidetracking a bit, but nonetheless an important point. We also had my dear brothers and sisters that we are allowed to pray somebody to
his face. Yes, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did say that if somebody praises you throw sand in his face. But here we see a digerati Allahu Allah praising Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our scholars joined between the narratives joined between what we have from the Sierra and the cinema. And they taught us that the praise which is not allowed is when you butter a person, you butter them
you know, say brother Mashallah you know, so much weight it must be 20 kilos. And you don't even believe is lost weight. Right? Trying to butter somebody. This is how this is not. Right. Or when you over bring somebody you give him titles and things which he isn't. Right. The most amazing the undisputed there, we start giving them titles, but then nothing of this. This phrase is harder. But if you mentioned something that is praiseworthy, but you're not saying it as praise, you're not saying it to make the person arrogant. You say it as a fact, this has allowed what she said about himself. The Allahu Allah about him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, You maintain the bonds of
kinship. I hope you did your work and listen to the talk. Did you find it?
You didn't look
maintain the bonds of kinship. You look after the poor, you you look after the needy, you help those in distress. It's crazy. But it's a fact. Like how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I am. I am the best of the children of Adam. I am the head and the best one I've ever heard. And it's not i'm not praising myself. This is fact. I'm telling you that I am Allah has told me that I have this. In fact, Allah has made me the best. While I saw her I'm not saying it arrogantly or praise. I'm stating a fact. So we learn that
we allowed to pray and the reason why I'm citing this brothers and sisters because today, we only criticize
what we do, criticize, criticize, criticize, to paralyze, as if we ran away from praising somebody and fell into another hole.
There's a middle way we shouldn't praise lying and we shouldn't criticize
or either Appleton Fado, Allah subhanho wa Taala says if you speak speak in a just way, if you mentioned somebody bad also mentioned the good. Right if you mentioned somebody bad also mentioned the good. This is from being just and when you mentioned the good and it's true about them. This praise is permissible, this praise is permissible. Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is the understanding. We also learn my dear brothers and sisters, and this is a powerful message for all of us here.
That if you intend Allah subhanho wa Taala Ella.
then fasten your seat belt
and get ready for the turbulence that you're going to fly.
The son of Allah subhanho wa Taala
wants to walk the path of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the NBA, that they will face opposition, because Allah made this a universal law for his MBR and he was Salatu was Salam. O Allah subhanho wa Taala said in his book, it's sort of an ayah 112 worker that he could. He could either be in
sharpener linseed oil gin up, bow to him in a bog. Zulu Falcone hoorah when OSHA or buka mefa. Further What if Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and thus we have made for every prophet and enemy, for mankind only know from Jin kindness
from the devils of the jinn, we've made enemies for this prophet. This is the student of Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says inspiring to one another decorative speech in delusion. But if your Lord had well they would not have done this meaning is the student of Allah that they doing it, Allah world that he tests, he tests those who want to walk the path that leads to Allah subhanho wa Taala
Allah says, so leave them and that which they invent, and Allah subhanho wa Taala says, workaholic Angelina liko Linda Biggie, Amina moody mean worker bee Rebecca do not say Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and thus we have made for every prophet and enemy from among the criminals, but sufficient is your Lord. Sufficient is your Lord as a guide and helper. This is what we do. Brothers and sisters in the Tao, we turn to Allah when the pain and mankind who is evil for us close our right and close our left and stand in front of us and block our behind. And at the bottom, we have the ground, we turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala above Allah is enough for us as a guide, and as a
helper is sort of off Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us the message of Shabbat. Allah says
Ed more amin hodel fee more
Shama he him wanna do a thorough home shaqiri pontos Allah subhanho wa Taala after he was expelled, that I'm going to attack them from from the front and from behind and from the right and from the left, and you will see many of them are not thankful. Many of them will not be from those who are thankful many of them will not recognize your blessings.
But in Allah, Adi shape and say he will attack us from above.
That is there for a believer to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala like us via his Salah. Well who live in the abattoir, the doors were shut, bolted, hulak will live. This is an intensified form of the verb. It wasn't just closed, it was bolted shut. And she said come to me. What did he say? Everything was shut. She was in front, the door behind was locked. The windows were bolted shut. He said ma de la.
He sought refuge in Allah immediately turned to the open Avenue.
Understand My dear brothers and sisters in that hour, you will face difficulties both from people as well as from the sheer pain. And when I spoke to my team this afternoon, I said this to them, right? Sherpa is going to he will not leave you Shepherd will not leave you brothers and sisters. He will not leave you will lie. You will become the biggest project when you intend Allah subhanho wa Taala This is how Shiva is he promised Allah subhanho wa Taala Your job is to be from the minority. Chopin said you'll see the majority he will take with him.
And Allah Subhana who is the Sunnah, that is the minority that remains upon guidance. It's the minority that follows the prophets look at the property and be added to a salon, how many follow them and how many disbelieved?
Right? The majority. And that's why this concept of the right being with the majority is not always true. Allah says we're into the experiment we love you The Luke and sebelah if you are to follow the majority of people on the face of this earth, they will send you a stray majority. Allah says while also in insane Allah. Allah takes a person by time
In the enzyme, indeed mankind, all of mankind, this Alif and lamb before the noun teaches us that mankind refers to all of mankind leviosa is in a state of loss, except for who? The minority, the minority of mankind is guided And who are they, and who they believe why we recently had and they do good deeds, what also been helped, and they advise towards that which is true, what else Oh, be sober, and they advise to patients and upon patients.
If you want to be a daddy, you need to have the therapy of a dad. I say this to my team members as well, I know Mashallah, there's a revival. People want to get involved, but brothers and sisters understand what you're getting involved in. Because what happens is, we see many martial impression impressionable people come into the
work with an organization and then suffer fatigue. Or what we say that will they suffer a bite at our bite to say that our bitten they get out of the Darwin is becoming like a phobia. It helped them get back into Pamela they have sleepless nights. Why they didn't realize what they're getting into. Realize, number one, what you're getting into, and train yourself for it. Expect the test, expect a lot to test you.
And be holistic in understanding what is a test. Don't just think a test is I lose my job. A test is people will start backbiting me and going around the community and saying don't take anything from this person. Don't think the test will be people spoiling my name and community. One of the biggest tests you will go through is the test of your sincerity.
Is the test of your sensitivity. Allah you will be tested.
Sincerity is hard.
It's hard especially in this day and age that we just discussing hype and fans. Marketing.
Sincerity is hard.
Many of many a time we don't think of this we don't understand what we're how we're being tested. Sincerity or law is is one of the greatest things that will be tested to make sure you proper to make sure you true when you say you intend Allah and it's not that you intend anything else, as even as a youth aku aku Amanda wahama is Tarun phenylethylamine koblin 11 Allahu
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Is it enough? Does mankind think it's enough to say,
I believe because to be left alone, because they said I believe and allow and test them allows you to test your statement to see whether you walk the talk, do you really believe Allah tested those before? Allah says, indeed, we tested those before Fela and Amana Allahu la Vina Sadako and thus Allah will make manifest who truly believes.
The bien and Allah will make manifest those who say they intend Allah but they intend other things.
They intend the free, they want to pass time. nothing better to do.
I'm going because you know that organization has that share.
I'm not saying you should not wish to be an organ in an organization because they have a specific shareholder speaker.
But that shouldn't be the purpose. That shouldn't be the intention.
That can be a reason, not the purpose. The purpose should be Allah subhanho wa Taala. And many a time we cause harm to ourselves because the intention is not in the right place. We're not benefiting from the Dow and it's not blaming the organizations not blaming the structures that's blaming the people. Then Japan uses it as a great
way to get into our system because we open up we open a gap in our firewall, he gets into us and he makes us start hating people in the hour. We start backbiting and we don't no longer stand. And the reason why we like this is because the intention was incorrect in the first place. All that's happening is we're being exposed to Allah protect us. The speaker included first and foremost, I told you the Hadith yesterday about the man who will be flung into the Hellfire when he stands in front of a lion says I was a person of knowledge and a person of power and propagation and inviting to your way. lungs that allow us to unite you did it for name for fame for whatever the reasons, and
you enjoyed it. There's nothing left for you here
for our allies just
allow will reward us.
But he'll reward us in the dunya so when we get to him we have nothing
will not protect us that's our brothers and sisters thank Allah when goodness comes to you thank Allah thank Allah so that goodness is not reward for your worship in this dunya and you have nothing with Allah subhanho wa Taala when you do good and Allah gives you thank Allah increase your
increase your your bed increase, thanking Allah for this good that he gave you so that you have storage in the hereafter not that it's given to you in the dunya I had an easy life and so on and so forth. And you get to Allah and he tells you it was given to you all those eases you had when other people were in difficulty. What do you think it was? Look at Sulaiman adding Salah. When he talks about Allah when he he listens to this and autonoma Sakina can enter your homes he can hear Allah gave him the the power to Don't let a man and his army trample you. He smiled. He smiled.
He smile. Right? And what did he say? This is from the blessings of Allah upon me. Why to test me? If I will be thankful or I will disbelief Allahu Akbar. Look at this.
He's saying this is to test me. So he's thinking a lot more. Many of us think when we goodness it's all good. There's no test will lie. We've been tested. One man in Santa Clara hora boo for a Chroma Juana Anna for yaku Robbie Ackerman. What is a verse a and as for inside,
Allah says when Allah tests him how, by being generous and honorable to him, giving him the easy life. Allah code is the test. We being tested brothers and sisters in the good times, and the easy times in the good times to see whether we thankful and in the difficult times to see whether we can be patient.
For Tacoma, hurry better. Be conscious of Allah. Don't take life for granted. your children, your good home financial standing material well being the fact that your bills are paid and your house is paid for.
Don't take it for granted.
Me Allah grant is the understanding. So if you intend Allah Allah is going to test you my dear brothers and sisters for my brothers and sisters in the Tao who are going through difficult times it's a test.
And you know what?
To be great. You have to be pushed. You have to be pushed. greatness is on the edge of destruction. Pushed right to the edge.
You know, when they set you in an emergency? That's why it's called emergency because your image
This is just a rendition.
The great people come out from emergencies. Huh? Allah says
I'm happy to enter the whole Jagannatha when it comes to Lavina Hello in public.
Sir, what Barbara was Zulu had a akula Rasul Allah Vina Avenue ma Mehta, Allah.
Allah in Nasrallah hickory. Listen to this brothers and sisters, Allah says, you anticipate getting into Gen nine. Have you not looked at the examples of those before you Mr. toman Besa. They were afflicted with trials and tribulations what barah and difficulties and and that which they considered harmful. Was Zulu Zulu, so severe it was that the earth beneath them shook hentai akula Rasul Allah Vina Amma number, the people said, and not only the people that are assumed the messenger said, metta through law, they were on the edge right on the edge. They said, When is the help of Allah coming? What does Allah say when they are about to topple off the edge of Lhasa? Is
there a law international law?
That that is where Allah says, Did the help of Allah is near is near, you still need to be pushed a little bit more?
he's been told you people are gonna drive you out. The test is coming, fasten your seat belt.
So if you're going through some turbulence in your data,
don't make it a sinful period for yourself, emerge from it become better and stronger, emerge from it.
Now I'm not saying that we shouldn't be also wise in our data and create situations where people don't feel distressed. I'm not saying that. Sometimes it's just poor management right?
Management. I call it the cliffhanger the cliffhanger product or manual of management. And some people read cliffhanger. Managerial books will lie, you know where you have to keep your teams always hanging off the cliff.
I'm not endorsing that.
But I want to drive home my point
that you intend a lot you're going to be tested.
how do I train myself? How do I train myself?
Chuck Sajid, you told us we need to have tarbiyah to work in the data. We have to let patience and there's other things you have to learn like good morals, manners and etiquette, how do I train myself? You know, you train yourself,
you know where
you know what we're doing every morning, but in light of Allah, this has to be continuous for the person who wants to work for Allah.
How do why do I say this? Because this was what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was commanded to to manage the turbulence he was going to get into. It wasn't one year, two years. Right.
When Tina happened much later, brothers and sisters 13 years in Makkah, and going through three years that are in secret 10 years opened our Migrator sending the Sahaba out five being stoned. People getting beaten for La ilaha illAllah sanctions. They were sanctioned in the value of a b a b valuable sanctions, you know sanctions today. Yes, they were sanctioned no trade no food no medicine.
turbulence was Zulu Zulu that shook Binney.
How did Allah train His messenger to remain sane amidst this insanity?
Oh, you covered in cross wrapped in cloth remember? He said Cover me cover me? Only Layla. polyfilla stand the night. Except for a little bit. This who
cosmin who called ILA half of the night, or a little bit less than half?

You have to
especially my team members in the audience, you have to wake up rocket before.
To rocket you have to you have to brothers and sisters.
It's upon you. Now. I'm not saying it's wajib. But I'm saying you want to succeed you got to take the means of success.
To look at the live brothers and sisters, how many from the self said this or people who passed away before they've been their dreams? And they said What did Allah do to you? says Allah forgives me Why did Allah forgive you for all the good deeds to do for serving the pilgrims for giving water to so and so for doing this? So Enzo said no.
For the fact that I read to Raka before facha just to look at everything Allah gave me for that.
It's a general message to everybody, but especially to the DAO workers, my co author, team members, National Soccer Foundation, and Medina here.
You specifically and everybody else generally.
You have to Don't kid yourself Don't beat oblivion. This is not a trend that is not a trend brothers. Like I said, there is not a trend serious stuff. This is serious stuff more serious than life and death. This is gentlemen Gentlemen, this is you're standing in front of a lawn that you have.

You don't have substance in what you do. You don't remember a lie in what you do.
meetings happen you have to be called 100 times
Why do you have to be called in the Dow needs you?
If you intend Allah should you be called more than once? If you know what you're doing,
if you know what you're doing, and you're doing it for Allah, should you be called more than once?
Should you have to be told more than once? Should you have to be reminded even once
We all love our understandings. I mean, I mean, brothers and sisters.
Our time has come to an end I wanted to discuss with you today also
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam becoming a messenger I told you first he became a prophet with a camera and then later on he became a messenger.
inshallah, tomorrow, we will discuss Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, becoming a messenger, I love you all for the sake of Allah.
I never intended to scold anybody. I only intended to speak from my heart, heart to heart, people who I love for the sake of Allah. If I'm sincere when I say I love you for the sake of Allah,
I must say what I said.
Everything correct said is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's perfect, and any mistakes of myself and she abandoned me seek a loss of Hannah who Allah is forgiveness will accept the sitting from us, and make it a means of the rabada
of these blessing nights that it is a means of us attaining later to cuddle. And as we always ask me, Allah gave us in general Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so we can tell him how we sat together in the dunya learning from his amazing life and extracting lessons that were relevant in the century that we lived in. I mean, to have Allah who will become the satanic alohomora we have the connection to Allah, Allah Allah and that's the Furukawa to blue lake wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
