My dear brothers and sisters, if I haven't already greeted you with the greetings of peace, then let me do so now as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh May the peace and blessings and mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala be upon you all, I welcome you all to yet another
session in our series provisions for the hereafter. This is our eighth session after the introduction, and today is the 25th of April 2015. And as you saw
in the email that came across tea, this will be our last session inshallah for many reasons, one of them is because we have many brothers and sisters preparing for the examination, some teachers, so they're preparing their students, some are students and they preparing for the exams must make everybody's
situation easy. And we almost had a hula tada shower upon each and every one of us. inspiration. And we Allah subhanho wa Taala remind us of those things which we may have forgotten. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless our study, and allow us to cover
a lot of material in little time. Me. Yeah, I mean, I know, you know, the exam time always, is a stressful time by default. For many reasons. One of those reasons is because some of us, you know, we have ambitions in terms of our achievement. And this is important. This is important, important, but we must never ever forget brothers and sisters. And this is a footnote to those who indeed are giving exams and taking exams in the upcoming weeks.
Never, ever forget that.
The greatest exam is the exam in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the tests related to that particular exam, such as the exam of the grave. And as I told you earlier, we know the questions of the grave, but memorizing the answers doesn't mean we will answer it. So every day of our life is indeed preparation for that exam and the marking will happen on the day of PM, in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So whenever you feel stressed out,
studying for your exams and worrying about that a or that a plus, or whatever the requirements might be, you know, for you to move on to your next stage of study or for you to get to your next class. Always quench the intensity of that stress by remembering the greatest example in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of them. And we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about the people who received the book in the right hands and those who receive the books in the left hand side and those who receive it in the right hands that they are those who have passed, they have received the true degree that the agenda degree, if I may call it that. So this is just a footnote
for those who are entering that particular period.
I've been blessed to be
a student in the system
for many years throughout my journey with it, and then into the first degree related to Arabic language and Islamic Studies and then the bachelors in Sharia and then
with my master's degree in judiciary, which was a three year program as well, a lot of exams. And even now with the PhD, it's the first year of the PhD is full of exams. So and the system in Saudi Arabia is that they they test you double so a subject one subject will have two major exams, which are both important in terms of you passing the subjects in terms of stress and magic managing stress and understanding the presence of stress.
I definitely can understand what you all will be feeling but I share with you this, these few words of wisdom, these words and thoughts that used to help me get through
you know, these periods Don't ever forget brothers and sisters
Don't ever forget,
never ever forget.
Do I never ever forget one of one of the issues we have today is we ask everybody to make dua for us and we forget to make draft for ourselves right this happens it perhaps is the stress of the exam it clouds our judgment. So you know, even if it's a job interview, even if it's stress at work, everybody we end up meeting you know, we we say make dua for us make dua for us make dua for us, and then we forget to make dua for ourselves. Never forget charity begins at home. I'm not saying that we are not allowed to ask other people to mcdow for us it is
you know, within reason, right? ensuring that we ask people of piety or people that we perceive as pious make dua for us, ask our parents to make dua for us ask our teachers to make dua for us but never ever forget that the most drag should happen from you yourself. You yourself so ask Allah right all those amazing exam do as I call it, you know you know those dogs when we say Allah please make me remember during my study all those answers that I will need in the exam because yeah, Allah you know all the questions already in the exam. You remember that? Do our brothers and sisters
I'm sure many are laughing. And you know that other day when when we say Allah, please soften the person's heart the person who's mocking my, my exam afterwards and please blind them to my mistakes. Yeah, Allah, you remember that?
You remember that Providence is this? Yeah. So I call them the exam to us, right?
Make make yourself and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala says Ummah uwg boo boo, either they're right for you actually for so. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Who is the one who answers the door of the stressed one of the desperate one and lifts the burden of them? Who is the one who does this? Indeed it is Allah subhanho wa Taala. So even though you ask other people to make drive for you never ever forget that the best person to make drive for you is you never ever forget this brothers and sisters, the best person to make the app for you is you because you are the most desperate. You are the most stressed. Right? This means so much to you. You're the heart that cries
out to Allah when you make dr to Allah given your situation is that stressed desperate heart and indeed it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who answers
our door so never ever forget to make dua for yourself, Allah grant us the understanding. So this is one of the reasons why we are closing the class a week,
a week or two earlier and inshallah as promised we will continue with year one.
Part Two as we explained at the beginning we'll divide the year into two parts we'll have part one which will run from around September after hedge until the beginning of the new year, so around January, and then we'll take a short break and then we'll continue from that particular period up to may right. So we have two parts to the year. So inshallah we will
because we obviously started
during the latter part, then our part two will be after hedge our part two will be after hedge beetelite Allah ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us life and to preserve us in his obedience and to bring us together inshallah And as promised inshallah, we will have
some of those one of programs lectures pertaining to Ramadan, and any other pressing issues and inshallah you will be informed or enlightened hemd via, via the Zed via dessert and my ad
mailing list to be in the law, right, the provisions for the hereafter mailing lists.
By last week, brothers and sisters, we stopped at
the revelation that came to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And in particular, we know what was the first revelation and we were discussing the difference of opinion or the narration, of jabber of the alarm and the narration of Asia. Ravi, Allahu Allah. Okay. And the conclusion to that discussion was that the first
revelation that came to the sutra muscle, Allahu alayhi wa sallam was a crock. And then after that, he became a messenger with the revelation. Yeah, you have a deaf ear. So he became a prophet with a camera
and he became a messenger.
With Yeah, you will definitely. And we said that one of the lessons we can extract from this is the lesson of knowledge coming before action. And I recall towards the end I spoke a general advice to all our, our organization heads here, that you know, ensure that you You are a good student of knowledge, right? Or at least you have a shoot of boat, right a board of advisors that are made up of students of knowledge because it's not conceivable to intend Allah subhanho wa Taala without having knowledge the Sharia is built upon the concept of knowledge before action. ikura which is a command towards reading is a command towards education and being educated before you act. And as
we've discussed earlier, Allah subhanho wa Taala said this messenger agenda, Kabbalah, Lanza had we found you not upon complete guidance and we guided you, meaning we taught you how to worship Allah, and then you went about your way worshiping Allah. Now you knew how to worship Allah. So knowledge came to you that allowed you to act. And as we've discussed time and time again, even the books of Hadith represent this and it's al Bukhari, he has an entire chapter titled Babylonian cabal, hollywood armelle, the chapter of knowledge before speech and action, right? Which means that even the scholars of Hadith through their journey, gathering ahaadeeth realized that we have so many
ahaadeeth that put forward this concept of knowledge coming before action, right? And don't forget the end of Surah Fatiha, Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about those who practice so much without knowledge. And
they are the people that went astray, whoever practices without knowledge, they go astray. Because yes, you know, somebody may ask that what would make a person practice when they don't have knowledge? And the answer to that question is love. They love Allah subhanho wa Taala they want to worship Allah, people who do be there, they don't intend to, to to you know, harm themselves by it or to disrespect Allah subhanho wa Taala if you ask anyone innovating in religion, you see but I love Allah subhanho wa Taala even the person who may Allah protect might observe Salatu Maghreb. As for a karate, not three. If you tell him why did you do this, he'll tell you because I wanted to
make more sujood observe more subdued and observe moral core. It's out of love for Allah. But when it comes to worshiping Allah, loving Allah is not enough. You have to love Allah with knowledge, meaning you have to love Allah and the fruits of the love that you have Allah have to be built upon the concept of knowledge. So the Sharia is big upon education before practice, and that is why the foundation of the Sharia is education in a corrupt and the tool of the Sharia the tool of the Sharia is the pen. Right? Or the instrument of the Sharia is the pen. Right and the pen is a tool of education as well Allah is a levy and lemma bill kala, the one who taught by the pen, and Allah
takes a person by the pen when Allah says loan well, Paula Mahamaya stood, right it takes a person by the pen, a lot takes a person by this pen by law swears by the by the pens and that which they inscribed. So the pen is an instrument of education. So education becomes outcomes before sorry, education or incomes before ml, and effort. Now, if you look at these two words, when you see some kind of law, you know, they are indeed twins of faith. Even in the physical makeup, you know, you get twins that are identical twins, and you get twins that they exist together, but they're not identical. But similar. If you look at the two words, if a sham can just stick it up on the on the
whiteboard element, you can see that they are made up of three letters with the same three letters. I laugh at me, I laugh and mean, the only difference is in one word, the Lamb comes before the meme. And in another word, the meme comes before the lamb in an animal. But if you look at the Arabic alphabet, in and this is just from my own observation, right? This doesn't mean that I'm saying something set in stone.
endorsed by divine evidence, this is just observation from that book. Right? If you look at the Arabic alphabet, and though it exists today Subhanallah you find that lab comes before which letter? Come in brothers and sisters participate with me here. Lamb comes before which letter?
Does lamb come before me or does mean come before lab?
Right even in the way it's made up today? Do we find lamb coming before meme or do we find the meme coming before lab?
right we find obviously the lab
comes before the mean. So we so so even though these words are made up of the same three letters, Ai, lab, and AI, lab and meme, we see that in the concept that comes before action, which is we have the lamb coming before the meat, the Lamb coming before the main bearing.
So Hannah law, and then we have herbal surrealism refers to knowledge. And the mn armelle refers to action. And in ML, we see the meme come before the lab, and we see the lamb come before the meme. And in the the natural structure of the Arabic language today, as we find it today. I'm not saying this is how it was at the time of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But as we find it today, we see that so Pamela, the Lamb comes before the meme as well. So, I mean,
the point I'm trying to get across is no matter how many angles and no matter how many ways we choose to look at this brothers and sisters,
right? No matter how many ways we choose to look at this,
the net result will be that we will find him coming before me. So Pandora Bella, the net result is we will find knowledge coming before action. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding, you know, I was even thinking about this the sewer, right or the surahs in the Quran.
I was I was pondering over this just just this week, I was saying to Pamela, if you
look at the beginning of every sort of most surace.
Right most, most Saurus you will see that it begins with knowledge before action.
Right. If you if you say, for example,
I live let me Let's start from sort of the fact that Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. unhemmed here is not a verb. It's a noun, right? And even the sentence, it's, it's, it's this is a noun sentence, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. And in it, we have education, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. were being educated all praises belong to Allah, Lord of the worlds rough translation. All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of the worlds This is education. We are not being asked to do something we are being taught something right. Out Rahmani Raheem, we're being taught again about Allah. We've been taught about Allah R Rahman r Rahim. Right? the Beneficent, the Most Merciful, right? The All Merciful and
especially merciful, right? manly kiyomi. Dean, we've been taught again, on off the Day of Judgment. This is education, right? We're not being told to do anything. This is education, allies tech, educating us about himself. Right?
We being educated about Allah. Right? And now that we've become educated about Allah last week, I discussed right that if you make someone love you, you want to do they want to do things for you. Allah teaches us about himself. So we love Allah. When we love Allah, we want to do things for a lot. He can ever do what he can to stay, we immediately say, Yeah, can I with you alone? Do we worship? Right? We step up now, as we love Allah. We don't want to worship anyone but Allah.
And you alone to be asked for help. This is action. Now. Did I mean ask yourself? Why did Allah subhanho wa Taala. Put ear canal Buddha said at the beginning, before telling us and hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen Rahmani Raheem Bella kiyomi de la could have just opened it by saying good ear canal Buddha can stay say you alone do we worship and You alone? Do we seek assistance from right? Allah could have done this. But now a lot taught us first before the points of action came through that, you know, who are you going to ask for help? Who are you going to worship? Surely you only want to worship the Lord of the worlds you only want to seek help from the Most Merciful. So who is the Lord
of the worlds that Who is the most merciful? Allah subhanho to Allah? Because he is mainly kiyomi Diem and he is R Rahman r Rahim. 200 bln. Right. So we even the surah of the Quran come with knowledge most of the suitors obviously, as I've said, there are some suitors to begin with action like yeah, you're letting the M and o fulfill Oakwood, right in the sixth juice. Oh, you who believe on your contracts. This is a coma This is action. But even in the surah it's not that Allah subhanho wa Taala didn't teach us about the importance of or the knowledge pertaining to honoring contracts before he he came with with.
Yeah, you're letting me know forbid.
right because we don't have to buckle up.
Law speaks about the hypocrites, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that from the signs of hypocrisy is not honoring your promises. So even in that circumstance, we don't say that, you know, because some sort of started with action, that that means action can happen before knowledge, you know, because in this circumstance, we look at the Quran holistically. But if you look at most routers, in my humble view, it starts with knowledge, look at any flat meme sudo Docker, and if less than equal keytab, Larry Buffy alykes teaching us, right. This is a book in which there is no doubt rough translation again, who doesn't deal with Turkey we being educated,
it's a means of guidance for the God conscious.
Right. Again, this is
a concept of education, a Muslim telling us to do things, Ally's informing us about things Allah is informing us, right?
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
a levena Meanwhile, Abilify,
una sala Omarosa. Allah goes on to teach us about the
the God conscious and those who fear Allah subhanho wa Taala. Again Allah subhanho wa Taala is educating us. Right? And Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on to educate us in many more and as before
the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala start coming down. In fact, if you look at sudo to Bukhara, as a whole, right if you look at Santa Clara as a hole, you find you find lows towards things kicking in fully at the beginning of the second juice facing the Qibla taking the table as a way of worship, right and then if you traverse through the rest of Sudoku Baqarah rules pertaining to marriage rules pertaining to divorce rules pertaining to
you know, there's a lot of yes aluna they asked you concerning they asked you concerning informed them. Now the rules start coming right the action points start coming then as we will spill over into the third juice,
which which marks the the points that encircle Bukhara we find Allah subhanho wa Taala, speaking about Riba and speaking about how we should borrow money, if we are on a journey, and how to document that and so and, you know, the processes that will lead to benefit, for example, that we have evidence of the money being taken and who took it and the amount and so on and so forth. So these laws now come
even within Surah Baqarah The beginning is about knowledge. That gets you to a stage where now you are ready to act. And Majora and he and I had the focus.
Next time you open any sort of the Quran, ponder over this point, when you traverse through the meaning ponder over this point, right? Look at the beginning and see how many times how many is there educating us before Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us to do something. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding. So I just wanted to continue of this particular point from our last discussion just as a point of a point to ponder on what I like to call those golden words of wisdom Allah subhanho wa Taala opened upon us as as as you know, we all know Brothers and Sisters of the Poor and it just it's just amazing. It's just amazing. What am I for those who are sincere with
this book, allow an open for them RJ Allah will open for them so panela meanings and lessons, it will set to your heart to to an extent that no doubt will ever allow for like, this book is amazing. And it's so amazing. You know every time we begin a speech so the loss of a loved one it was Selim would always begin a speech and say Mija de la palma de la
sala de la when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say whoever Allah decrees guidance upon mankind misguided whoever Allah decrees misguidance upon can can guide you know you remember this when you think of those that Muslims who studied the Arabic so well and they studied the Quran so well only to try and disprove this book being the final testament. Right? And they reading the same is that you and I are reading but Allah doesn't bless the heart because they chose not to be blessed by having an insincere intention.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. Right? So this shows you that guidance is in the hands of Allah. There are people who have studied this book amazingly, in fact, you know, some of the some of the works that grow our Eman with regards to the book of Allah are done by some of the orientalist some some of the orientalist have stepped up. And they've, you know, they've written about today it's a common phenomenon and I'm sure you've seen it in in modern data SEO or those who speak about Tafseer. in contemporary times, the really structures of suris I was wasn't a concept discussed by the classical scholars to a great end
yes, there's some amazing books of the facet that you mentioned some for wide, but to have a dedicated study towards what is coated cold call today, the ring structure of sorts where, you know, you look at the beginning of the Surah At the end of the surah. And you say Look how, how the beginning is related to the end even though the messages are different, or how the surah is related to the surah before it related to the surah off date or the end of one surah is related to the beginning of one surah or like for example, in ayatul kursi if you if you count back the ayat and you count from the ayat, you will see the last Ayah has correlation to the first these ring
structures that Subhanallah have come about, you see that some of these books have been written by non Muslims.
Right. And obviously they were writing it not to grow people's email. Right, but there were some some wrote it to
as a scholarly works related to the Arabic language. Some wrote it to help other orientalist in this study of the Quran. Right? So some haven't been written by Muslims who had a line even this didn't benefit them, but you and I picked up the book and we read it and we said La ilaha illa Allah now in a llama, right? La uses who he wants to grow our understanding of his book, Allah users who he wants to panda who has to grow our Eman using his book wellness Parenthood, Allah grant is the understanding me. So this is pertaining to the first revelation and the correct opinion is that it cannot be zero because the Halak was the first revelation that came through Rasulullah sallallahu
alayhi wasallam. Now, in terms of the data of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam. It happened in stages as well. Allah subhanho wa Taala first gave him Prophethood and then made him a messenger, as we've discussed. And then when Allah made him a messenger, Allah first commanded him to take the Dharma to his closest dorms. What did actually erotically Praveen, the closest people had either of your loved one had the closest people around him and his closest friends, he went to Abu Bakar went to Ali.
So, it happened in stages, it wasn't just you know, an announcement on the mountain from the outset. Right. First,
it happened in stages. So, even when when he became a messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
he was told to propagate the message to the close ones charity begins at home, as we say, and then after that, he was told to command his people towards La Ilaha Illa line we know the famous story that he stood up on a high place that overlooked the people and was a common place for people to make announcements and he made his famous speech sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in which
immediately immediately, he started gaining enemies, right so so the man sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who was one known as the truthful one, the the nice one, the honest one, the Wise One, right? The one of noble lineage.
Within a few words became the cursed one. Right? We know, Abu lahab he cursed sola sola Allahu alayhi wa sallam immediately after he called the people to worship only one Allah. Allah says, amazing Subhan Allah, you know, how people can be hooked on to misguidance Some people say today that's a panorama. Some people do things that are absolutely not perceivable. The mind knows this doesn't make sense. It's common sense, Pamela, but how can they not understand? Right? And the answer to that is brothers and sisters look at Abu lahab. And look at the courage. Right? Well, they were worshipping stones that they were making. And it's not that it was, you know, some people
practice was guidance as a side thing. No, this was the crux of the existence.
Right? They were hooked on to this misguidance. Right. Common Sense wasn't so common, it happens. This is, you know, if we cannot learn from history about about people, and the traits of people, you know, we are going to learn from today, we too shallow, we never read the plight of the people of the past. And we never ponder. And as I told you earlier, you know, and one of my machines told me that today we are people who don't read. And when we read, we don't understand. And when we understand we don't ponder anything.
And when we ponder and think we failed to apply, right, so there's this knock on effect, right? A lot of the time we listen to a lecture, but we don't think it's a blank mind listening to the lecture. We might take notes, but those notes will never be read.
I hope this doesn't happen with this class. Right? And as you know, we try to really help you all with the notes, but I hope it doesn't happen that we get back in September. And then I asked a question that who looked at the notes after all these months and nobody writes back to me or speaks back to me, because we too ashamed that we didn't. That's not the way of seeking knowledge. So today, we are that
That people, right we will become,
you know, unfortunately, similar to the way of those that do when blue came to they just never used the brain that Allah gave them. So we listened to a lecture, it's a blind listening, we there for whatever reason Allah knows best, then if we take notes, we never look at those notes. And we never ponder over those notes. Right? And obviously, if the if no one is pondering that action is very literal, I'm not being steal your mind that here as I always say, we must never ever be still reminded because our motto lomatium.
Right. oppression is is from the darkness of the deal. I'm not saying that we all like that. But I'm saying, no doubt, the trend is a large portion. I like that there's a lot of people who are watching a lot. And as as you heard me
speak in the speech in the pattern. When I spoke about the celebrity fan culture in that era, and that we should be aware of it. I said this that today, we live in an age where Islamic knowledge exists in quantities never seen before, and is accessible in ways never ever before our parents can be forgiven. But we really don't have as many excuses, right? knowledge, which we don't even want to ask comes to us our phones, beep with reminders. We don't even want our phones to be with reminders and reminders. When I say we don't want to meet, I mean, we're not looking for it. Yes, we appreciate it when it comes. But we're not even looking for it and the phone beeps and we open up
our WhatsApp or whatever it is, and we see Subhanallah he has affected.
So Allah is bringing knowledge to us in ways like never ever before. Yeah, and he you know, mean hate lead in ways we cannot even imagine. But Subhana Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, right, where is the improvement? Surely, when knowledge exists at this rate and quantity, the improvement or the status of the oma has to be a status never witnessed before in in, in terms of recent centuries, no doubt will never match the first centuries of Islam. But in the sense of of recent times, but allows even pondering, you know, most of the Islamic books that you and I have access to what is lacking haven't even for those who speak Arabic, these books were manuscripts were
manuscripts of Hannah law, if you go back 100 years or even less, they wouldn't publish books.
Right? Really, if you try and do a cursory study of the amount of books published in the last 100 years, meaning taken out from the manuscript format, manuscript format, meaning a format that Well number one is hard to read. Number two is well protected in different museums and libraries, given the nature of the paper, and the ink and so on and so forth. Number three that the large majority didn't have access to, besides a handful of people, perhaps you would cover them on your, on the fingers of your hand. If you look at the at the books produced in the last 100 years. Pamela, you can see this is like a golden era, because, you know, studying Islam became easy, because of the
publication of these books. What happened?
you know, Subhanallah, we live in a golden age in a relatively right, but what is the benefit? What is the benefit? Where are we seeing the walking, talking currents, the walking, talking
narrations of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we know a lot of narrations in our head. But some heroism crossing our collarbones is not entering the heart. And when it doesn't enter the heart, it doesn't become part of the limbs. Right? Because the heart is the control center of the limbs. So just ponder over this My dear brothers and, and sisters, so
Allahu alayhi wa sallam them brought this knowledge to his people. And immediately he became the customer and he became an enemy, given how people allow their minds to become shackled, and chained to misguidance. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from that well, law he this should be a message to each and every one of us that you know what, even though we we know our ideals that we believe in them, we shouldn't be closed minded when sincere people advise us. We shouldn't be closed minded. We shouldn't be those people. Right? We should be people who are open minded like Mr. Chef used to say I debate my my opponent knowing that I'm right, but being open to listening to him if he
proves the truth,
right, this should be our way. Right? Because Allah could send us guidance, and we don't want to be in a state in a stage and condition where we too proud and arrogant. And indeed, Allah doesn't have the arrogance. Right. So learn from this lesson because the police learned the hard way. Right. The tower had to go on for 23 years before MCE came into the hands of the Muslims and the courage to enter this land right
And then again many died upon disbelief even after hearing Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And if you look at the speed of Abu lahab, in how he cursed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when this tower came to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam you can see that they just lacked the ability to use their brains, right? No, he never pointed over the message, even though Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was strategic in how he presented the message. In some of the books I've seen recite this, that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rhetorically approached them and said, if I told you that behind me behind this mountain is an army and a well prepared army ready to
attack? Will you believe me?
They said, Yes, we've known you never ever this big alike.
They never, they never pointed over this when he then came with the follow up and said this. And now, based on this, I'm telling you to worship only one ally, not worship these idols immediately without God. We see Abu lahab cursing Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, you know, being too quick to answer brothers and sisters is not a sign of intelligence. It's quite frankly, a sign of stupidity. May Allah subhanho wa Taala
protect us and forgive the term, but this is the reality. And don't forget, you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us one tongue and two ears, so that our listening is twofold is two to one with relation to the tongue. And in front of the tongue, Allah replaced our teeth, and in front of the teeth, Allah placed our lips. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, places two gates before our tongue, right, gives you one tongue or gives us one tongue, and then puts two gates in front of the tongue.
So Pamela, two gates, and with our ears, Allah gives us two ears, with no gates in front of our ears. But somehow today, we more than willing to block our ears for you know, we willing to put gates on our ears, and we willing to release our tongue, we'll know subhana wa Taala protect us look at the people of No, Allah tells us about them that they would do a zombie movie as any right that they would. They would block the ears, they would block the ears they let their tongues run loose, can signal Allah He Salam and mocking him and mocking his people and disobeying Allah even challenging Allah. Allah stared like this. There's no place for the cup Buddha and Africans in our
life brothers and sisters. Well, you know this, no, this you know, if anyone could could could could see into the grave and see what happens to a person after they put in the grave voila, he they will realize a lie, they will realize that the son of Adam has no leg to stand on when it comes to be arrogant. Allah it's true. It's true. If we could see what happens to us after we die, a lot of them stand. What leg? Do we have to stand on brothers and sisters to be arrogant? And the worst arrogance is being arrogant in front of the truth? May Allah protect me, or blind me?
And I'm going to just say one thing here, brothers and sisters, and this is a follow up to the question that we answered at the end of our last session when I spoke about, you know, in laws and wives and so on and so forth. And
we spoke about certain norms, certain norms that chain us, that chain us, right, we practice these norms, even though they don't make sense. I know many, I think you hear that Oh, and hamdulillah we're not like the Quraysh brothers and sisters, we have this today, where people follow norms panela if they only use their brain in front of this norm that realize that this room doesn't make sense. It's common sense that it's wrong. You know, over and above the fact that religion came revelation came to say that it's wrong. And so hello, if I keep on even though this revelation, even though the minds if they used it will prove that practice being wrong, we find them practicing it.
So don't feel safe brothers and sisters in terms of this discussion and and save from what's being said, Nope. rather take this note and after the test, ponder of it, ask yourself, that is, am I this person with a certain practices in my life, I'm just overseeing it. I'm thinking it's, it's normal, but it's really abnormal. And I've become blinded to how abnormal This is. Right? Take this on brothers and sisters, sit down and have a one to one with yourself and ponder over this. So then after Allah subhanho wa Taala, commanded him to give this hour to his people. Then Allah subhanho wa Jalla
opened a new stage in the Tao of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And that was to give this dour to all the Arabs not just the Polish, but all the Arabs, right. So you find the message going to Medina going to by going to all the other places, right? The Dow then was now spread out, and it sort of surpassed the sphere of the courage and then
Towards the end of the life of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the final portion of the stages of our open and that was that will be open to everyone who lived on the face of this earth, whether they were Arab, and also the Arab or non Arab, right, because we know at the end of silica Sol, Allahu alayhi, wa sallam sent letters to different kings, and it will refer to LA, he actually discusses these letters, we won't go through them. But in his original book, as he runs through the life of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he discusses the different letters that went to different kings. And what those letters actually said. So this is a lesson brothers and sisters, for
you all, especially those who run our organizations, right? Have a strategy, you don't have to reach everybody at once. And you don't have to do all of everything at once. strategize, right?
You know, it's not that you are running at a low efficiency, if you're Tao is only to your close ones. No, you might just be running at 100% efficiency, given the stage of your organization and the maturity of it, for example. Right. Some people think that, you know, at the beginning, if we do things for everybody, then this these are great metrics. And I see it the other way, I see people who want to do too many things at once before their time, as,
as people who lack achievement, they're not achieving they're lacking in achievement, right? Because there's different ways of looking at the metrics, right.
some people feel that you know, what we gauge achievement by doing so many things at one time, and I normally say no doing one thing properly, the way it should be done. at a particular moment in time is more efficient, is more efficient, this is the best way of working on metrics. You know, it's like saying, for example,
a person who only has $2, if he gives $1 in charity, he is better he is better than the millionaire who gave 10,000 or even $100,000 in charity. Why? Why from one angle is better, because the person who had two donors gave 50% in charity, and the person who had a million only gave 10% in charity, right, and allies, all just allies are just that it's Allah who gave this man $2 and gave this other man a million dollars. Right? Normally, we'd say our while the person who gave 100,000 is better than the guy who gave one but I'm saying that's not necessarily so that's not necessary. So if you if you flip the coin, you will see that the person who gave one actually gave 50% of his wealth to
charity. So in reality, he gave more because he's in need to the dollar that he gave was greater to the other man's need to the 100,000 that was given. Does that make sense? brothers and sisters? Right. So
ponder over these things, brothers and sisters, just ponder over these things that, you know, Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam could have been given instruction to take this down to everybody but now Allah made the dour last 23 years. Right. And and and the dour being sent to everybody purposely was done towards the end. Yes, it went to luxury, but that that had a specific purpose, because the Muslims are being persecuted. Right. And even then, even then, the Muslims just went to have Russia. They didn't give the power to the judge. Right? The the judge he called the Muslims in front of him when the Polish sent their contingent to spread propaganda about these
Muslims in Abyssinia in
this particular region, and the joshy gave these Muslims the chance to speak. And this is where he came to find out about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Right. So even if we talk about modjadji It wasn't that we're going to
send these people to go and live there because he was a just King. Right? So remember, brothers and sisters to always ponder regarding the metrics pertaining to efficiency, not everything that you think is efficiency is actually efficiency. You know, I always tell our Zedd and my team, that one full cup is better than three half cups, and I learned this from my father. Happy the love you're presenting. Right? having one full cup is better than having three half cups. Because yes, three half cups equals one and a half cups of water, but the three incomplete cups. One full cup is less in quantity than three half cups but it's a full cup. It's complete. You know you can speak about
it, you can pat yourself on the back about it. It's something done. You can put it away and now you can move on to something else and focus on it and completely but when you when you shift your focus back across three things at once, then not everybody is able to maintain that quality. Not everybody is able to make
Quality and as a wise man one said that a candle illuminates a candle illuminates
right, illuminated lights up an entire space. But focused light is a laser.
Focused light becomes a laser. And a laser can cut through steel and laser can cut through steel ponder over these words brothers and sisters as we go for our break.
telegraph is the understanding how the Allahu Allah sallallahu wasallam or Baraka Allah. Allah Allah, he was so happy. In
Bismillah R Rahman Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was a woman Wanda
Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you all, and bless us all. I mean, you're blind. I mean,
our brothers and sisters just before the break, we discuss the stages of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And now I just want to travel through some of the names of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Remember, we just have a run through and I said I'll keep it specific to certain things pertaining to him. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam
ignore him in his original writing actually mentions these names, and then has specific sections pertaining to each name, and explains them and the books dedicated towards the name of our pursuit of loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam and the evidence is related to these names and
the meanings of these names and why he deserved
you know, these names and absolutely fascinating books. I'm not sure of there being any book in the English language, Allah knows best if somebody has come across anything, please share this with me. But in the in the Arabic sort of arena.
There are many books and Subhanallah I tell you, you cannot help but
when you read these type of books, and you know become even more amazed about the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So this is perhaps an encouragement for those who haven't learned Arabic to learn, right? Because there's so many books that you can gain access to Masha Allah maybe in the future, we can run a program dedicated to the names of the messenger Salallahu, Alayhi, wasallam.
All the names of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi. wasallam
are descriptive ones, the descriptive ones, right.
They're not just proper names without meanings, they carry
noble meanings, noble meanings, and I suppose I mentioned to the named Mohammed right, which was given to him by his grandfather. And he actually gave him that name, because he hoped that he would be the praised one.
And we know that we have the ultimate
which is Allah His early so that was Salah mentioned regarding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he being the Prophet that will come after him. And this refers to the one who is the most praised, right? Or his his even more praised, right and they both these two words come from the root letters have mean and then have which refers to praise, which refers to praise. Obviously, when we talk about the praise for Allah, that this is not just any praise as we discussed last week. The praise for Allah is specific and a praise that is coupled with love and exaltation. But nonetheless, in terms of the name Mohammed it refers to the praise one is the one who is even more pressed.
And these are two common names because it is mentioned in the Quran. And even Mohammed is mentioned in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says Mohammed Rasulullah
from the names of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Is al mutawa
and l Murphy, and l Hashem and L.
And l. McAfee.
And maybe you Toba and the Wii U urashima. And alpha T. And I mean, these are just some names. Let me repeat them for for for Hisham so you can stick them on the whiteboard for the benefit of everybody. So from the names is Al mutawa kill
and I'll mashi
And I'll hash here
and allow PIP
and Elmo coffee
Then the Wii U Toba
and the Wii U Rajma.
And I mean, and again, these are just some of the names of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Amitabha kill refers to the one who was most complete in terms of putting his trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala, the most complete in terms of putting his trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, Allah says,
Allah affiliate or Khalil moutoku Allah.
So Allah tells us that in Allah do the believers placed their trust and do those who placed their trust placed their trust, they place it in Allah subhanho
wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most complete in terms of putting his trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. The most competent we know kind of Oulu Al Quran his character was the Quran.
Then Allah He refers to the Eradicator and the one who removes falsehood and removes misguidance. Right, and removes that which
Allah subhanho wa Taala dislikes and removes that which the previous
nations changed in terms of their revelation, and also the one who comes with that which abrogates abrogates the previous
revelations right because Allah subhanho wa Taala gave Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Quran and the Quran is described as Mohammed, one Mohammed anally Alright, Allah subhanho wa Taala descriptive describes the Quran as mohe mean
merely we can loosely translated as the overwhelming so the Quran overwhelms previous
revelation, right. So everything that the Quran cites, which is different to what came before then we look at what the Quran says that we considered the Quran to have abrogated that which came before. So this is Al Mahi and hashey refers to the gatherer
he gathers people upon goodness in this life. And
the people will gather around him on the day of his oma and he will have the most people gathered around it because he will have the greatest.
This is what a hash here refers to. This is what a hash it refers to then we have an active block it refers to the last profit, right or the one that comes at the end of the other properties, the one who came after. So he's right at the end. And the same applies to Alamo coffee. It refers to the one who is the seal or the seal of profits and McAfee refers to like, the one who closes Prophethood seals it and we know that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is the seal of all prophets. And then we have Nabeel Toba and Avi Rama, his is the prophet of repentance, and he's the prophet of mercy. Allah subhanho wa Taala described him as merciful to the believers, and he is the Prophet
that will beg a lot to shower upon his own mercy, and he bent a lot to shower. Allah's mercy on the oma before he even passed away. And he will intercede on behalf of the oma
at the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of the AMA, on the day of the AMA.
this is also a lesson Allahu alayhi wa sallam. So in Abu Toba and Abdul Rahman, the prophet of repentance and the prophet of Rama. Indeed, he asked Allah to forgive this on mine to protect this ummah. Right so he's the prophet of repentance, and we do know that repentance was a mighty gift to the ummah. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in that Allah subhanho wa Taala. For those who did the major sins, Allah placed a Toba right for the major sins. Right? And if a person practices Toba then Allah subhanho wa Taala would forgive this person and remove the record of that major sell off his records. And this wasn't exactly the case was
by Israel or the nations that came before us, right? When they did a major sin
sometimes the repentance entailed them killing themselves. Right? So, this was a mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala upon the man, that's what he's known as the bill rushman levy told me that he came with a specific message, and he came with Toba this concept of repentance that the oma Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam enjoys that when they do a major sin. They have Toba to redeem themselves is the father is generally therefore the minuses. But for the for the major sins to be accepted. As we've discussed earlier the concept of sorry to be forgiven for the major sins to be forgiven. Forgive me brothers and sisters, for the major sins to be forgiven. The concept of Toba has to come
into play and Toba is an act of worship that has its conditions and has its pillars and has its processes. Right. That is
Toba that sola Salalah alayhi wa sallam is W Toba and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is alpha T. Because indeed he is the opener to Jenna, and no one will enter Jannah before him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he's i mean he's the trustworthy one. He never did any disservice or injustice to Revelation rather Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
revealed to us the message with integrity and honesty, as Allah subhanho wa Taala requested him to do and that's why I love sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to be a witness, right? Be a witness after he revealed or delivered the final sermon after he delivered the final sermon. So these are some of
the names of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, there are some names of Rasulullah sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam, that
are specific to him, to him, in terms of meaning, in terms of meaning, like Mohammed like Achmed, like olarak, like and hasher like McAfee,
right. These are specific to him in terms of meaning meaning,
the most complete meaning that can come with this term when applied to human being only belongs to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Right. Nobody can call themselves Mohammed and claim to be the praise done as Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was praised, right, nobody can do this. And
there are certain names that we should avoid, is disliked for us to name our children. Why? Because it's not true. Like for example, Russell, or a soul, right to name your child or soul. Even though linguistically we have people who delivered the poster also known as messengers, they deliver our post, but generally we don't name our children our sole intending people who delivered the Wright brothers and sisters. We call them Rasool it what the title messenger God sent. And this is not true. So we should avoid those names that
you know, that really do not offer a fair description to the to the person being called that name. Even though we don't use it as a description, we use it as a noun, I'm not saying we should start changing our names. For those who already have those names, or name the children with those names and understand that explain it to people that we just psyching it as a noun, not as the description. Right? It doesn't mean that if somebody's name is Rahul that they are described as God said, No, they just carry it as a noun. Without the descriptive intent. We said with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his names are descriptive and the descriptive intent is meant. They're not just
names, without meaning, because that wouldn't be sitting for a pseudo lasala maharlika Salah because the name without meaning actually lacks perfection. Perfection is in the name along with its meaning. Right? When you quote Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam al mutawa kill or you say from his name is his the motto of kill. And you intend the meaning not just the noun without the meaning, right? Because if you don't intend the meaning this takes away from the completeness of the tab. Right, I'm just going into a bit of theology here in terms of the discussion, but I just want you to understand
that when we give these names Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, we intend the description more than just the name and when we give it to people, yes, we intend the name more than the description or I hope that is the case. And it has to be the case by the brothers and sisters because then that would become a lie. If somebody for example names the child, Kelly Mullah Kelly mala, the one who speaks to align Allah speaks to then this is incorrect in terms of description, but if somebody just named it as a noun to highlight that Moosa was collembola then we say that even that is disliked for you to give this to share this name with your child. So we must understand
That is names of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that are specific to him, definitely in terms of meaning. And no, no even as the Prophet share has shared it, like no other Prophet was called. The Prophet was called and Hashem no other Prophet was called and McAfee, no, as the Prophet was called Mohammed and it meant in meaning, and that meant in meaning indeed, is the most praised more praise than the other prophets.
And he has specifics that Allah has given him that no other prophet will have as as we said, He will be the opener
to the gates of gender, then we have meanings that
other prophets share with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in terms of the descriptive meaning, right,
like for example nebby like for example, like for example, rhassoul like for example, a showerhead Aloo Bashir and levier w Rama, right.
These are shared, these are shared, even w Toba is shed because we know that Isa Elisa Lam came with with laws that were a completion to that which Musa alayhis salam came with, right? When we talk about the Gospels
in modern day, so we are some names that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam has that other prophets had as well, right like nebby as the prophets were titled with the title nebby as the prophets were titled with the title rhassoul other prophets were titled with the title of a share hit the witness the one who who is the witness over the people and then receiving the message. We know that is any salon will be questioned.
Right regarding what he said to his people and the people's response to his message, like the bring the bringer of glad tidings. This wasn't specific to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah says Allah MOBA sharena Rahman de, or the Warner. Right, the Warner was also shared between Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and other prophets. Allah says messages that brought black tidings and
So this wasn't specific to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam it was shared by other messengers and other prophets. So this is with regards to the names of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam then let's move on to the children of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
With regards to the children of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, then Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed him with
many children Alhamdulillah
Allah lots of heading hotel to test him some Allahu alayhi wa sallam was making all his children passed away
in his lifetime besides one, and that was Fatima robiola, one who passed away six months after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away. So lots of Allah alayhi wa sallam gave her that glad tiding that you will be the first to join him after he leaves
Salallahu alaihe salam you know look at us with him in general. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tested His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his first child,
as many of the scholars of Sierra mentioned was a passive, passive and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had this idea
known as he was known as the father of lacasa. This is known as a cornea, which is common in Arabia. Right? So if a person has a child, called abdulai, instead of calling that person by his first name, you call him Abu Abdullah, the father of Abdullah Allahu alayhi wa sallam was called
the father of him. And that was his first child and this child passed away, as you know,
at a very young age, at a very young age, some historians say that he passed he actually lived to the point that he was able to mount
a riding animal.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best and many historians say that no, he, he passed away as a young boy. And then he had Zainab he had
zeyneb and subsequently sensative came before him, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. So then he had Zainab and then he had Rukia. And then he had to consume and then he had found him.
These were the daughters of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
after that, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was blessed with
Abdullah with Abdullah and the scribe, the scholars of Sierra differ with Abdullah
was born before he became a prophet or after he became a prophet but what seems more correct and Allah knows best and this is the view supported by multiparameter la la, that he was actually born after Prophet would so even after Allah salallahu alayhi wa sallam became a prophet Allah tested him. Right. And
some of the scholars actually say, as we know, one of the children, children of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was titled with the title Abebe and a buyer. Abebe and a buyer. Some say that a pipe and a bar here, which is the pure and the clean. These were the titles of this particular child. Abdullah
and Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah knows best and then after Abdullah came, Ibrahim came Ibrahim, and it is said that Ibrahim was born in Medina.
Right. And Ibrahim was born
to Marissa and Marissa lkp.
So these are the children of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he said that he was actually or Abraham was born in the eighth year of the hitter, right? And
as I said, all the children of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away in his life, except Fatima except Fatima. She died six months after now, we do know that all the children were also given to the to the loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam via his wife Khadija
are of your level and have Besides, besides obviously, Ibrahim, right, which lucky Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Via Maria.
Yeah, so and also Abraham passed away when he was young. And there's the famous narration way Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the in the
Apollo 11, that, indeed the ideas and the heart He said, but we do not say anything except that which is pleasing to Allah. And the scholars have derived from this narration, that Allah subhanho wa Taala will not hold us accountable for that which you and I call human nature,
human nature to feel sad, or soft. LGB Li, right.
Feeling sad, crying alone will not hold us accountable, will not make a sinful and will not consider as being said, as a means of lacking trust in Allah, or lacking belief in Allah. No, my dear brothers and sisters. So this is not the case. But Allah will hold us accountable for what we say and what we do. And that's why I
said that we will not say anything except that which is pleasing to Allah. Because when we say something, then Allah will hold us accountable based on what we say, right. And when we do something, some people start wailing, and they start tearing the clothes and they start running like mad people up and down, and so on and so forth. They lose their minds, when they start behaving in this fashion, then Allah will hold us accountable based on what we do, and what we say. Right.
the scholars have deduced this important point. And I think it's important for us to share it with the brothers and sisters here. Because you know,
a lot of the times this happens, somebody passes away, we lose a job. Things happen, we feel sad. And some people say, No, you shouldn't cry, and you shouldn't show sadness. This is a sign that you know, you you lack interest in the line, this is incorrect. It's human nature to cry. In fact, if you don't cry, then there's something wrong with you. There's something wrong with you. And this could lead to mental depression. May Allah protect, right? The Alliance created this body and tears have a means of reducing stress. Right? And Allah knows best the process of crisis is therapeutic to many people. We see people who Subhanallah they go through extreme difficulty, and when they cry,
just because they cried a little bit, they feel better. So crying is from human nature. A lot created us it's part and parcel of us. And it's incorrect to tell people not to tear. It's incorrect to tell people not to cry, especially children, especially children. A child might lose their father might lose their mother, they might be eight years old, nine years old. 10 years old, they have this ability to understand and Miss people. And now they're seeing the parent has passed away. And from the child's perspective, they're gonna miss them. Yes, the child knows about Jenna and maybe we taught the child about gender but the reality is, you're still a child. He understands that he's
gonna he's missed this person.
Right? And then what happens is some people when the child is crying, we say no, don't cry. I've actually heard adults tell children don't cry because your mother will will not be happy or your mother will feel more hurt. And this is incorrect brothers and sisters. This is incorrect advice. This is wrong advice. This is this is cultural, not Islamic. By no means and way and form. No, no, I was at a funeral. Last Pamela
timbre, right? So a young sister passed away she was 32 years old, 33 years old. She had this abnormal condition may Allah grant a grade, which they guarded from Gen nine May Allah grant agenda. And may Allah protect and shower ease upon her. her two daughters and husband, she left two daughters,
very young, I think six year old or seven year old and an eight or nine year old 22222 girls, and I happen to be in Zimbabwe, I arrived from one of my trips, and she passed away, she had an abnormal situation when she gave birth to her second child,
her heartbeat, sort of lost synchronization
with her lungs, right, with her lungs upon a very rare situation will not protect us. And there's no real way of curing it. So basically, the stress of birth
caused the heartbeat to sort of come out of sync with the lungs with the lungs, right, and those who are doctors here, I'm not sure if we have any doctors will probably be able to or will definitely explain this better than me. But this is what I understood this was the condition. So what would happen is, sometimes the heart would send blood to the lungs, but he wouldn't collect the oxygen.
Which means that even while she's sitting, she would get out of breath because the heart would have to work faster. So basically, her heart is outliving her age, it's working faster than it should. And then obviously, you have to take medic, the only way, the only thing you can do here is is manage the situation. So they have these things called beta blockers, which sort of reduce the speed of the heart to try and keep the heart in check. Because if it doesn't, then you get high blood pressure, so on and so forth. And to be honest, she was she was given. I heard from the husband that she was actually given two years to live. But Allah bless there was, I think about seven years or
six years after that condition was diagnosed. So anyway,
Allah blessed to live enough to see her two daughters grow up and I was there when these children passed away. And obviously no one can prepare. Sorry, I was there when the mother of these children passed away. And there's no way you can prepare for this, my dear brothers and sisters, you cannot prepare for the situation. No matter how much reading you do. How much study you do, you cannot prepare yourself for the situation to meet two young girls who you know who have just lost their mother and had a close relationship with the mother. I was actually told by the community that the mother did everything for the children, there was such a great relationship, she would drop them at
school, pick them up, do everything for these children to Pamela you know, and even when the mother became sick, the child actually one of the girls the daughters actually said to Pamela who's going to cook for me and who's going to
come to me in my honor you all when I'm in the bathroom. This is how children think, you know, when I'm in the bathroom, who's gonna come and clean me, right? It's the children the innocent Subhanallah so obviously, these light brings tears to the eyes and sadness to the heart of what happened to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam right children rmse and dizziness would have been from the treasures and beauties of of this life. Right. But we should never let them serve us away from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we discussed earlier how Allah subhanho wa Taala tested Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam with his child. So you know, Allah tested me by being one of those that the news was
broken to regarding this particular mother passing away, right, the doctor came out, looking for someone to speak to. And obviously there were a few members of the family there. But the doctor somehow felt that he wasn't too comfortable only speaking to those there. And somehow he saw me I don't know what it was. Maybe it was the beard. Maybe it was the top Allah knows best. But the doctor asked me to come into the main room as well. And I felt that there's something something very abnormal here. Why is the first time I've ever had this experience. And the doctor said, I have some bad news for you. So and So heart collapsed, and I tried to resuscitate her but it didn't work. I'm
sorry. She's passed away. So Pamela Lee, I cannot tell you, you know, you know, when when when they say metaphorically, like you've been in the ring with Muhammad Ali and you faced one of his his right hand pump, you know, punctures that the punch that comes through, so you cannot prepare for this the knock that I felt by hearing this? Yeah. And it's upon Allah Subhana lights? Absolutely. Yeah. And the it's a life experience. It's a life experience. Right. And to be honest, that the girls the daughters of this particular person who passed away was outside. They were outside of the room. Now immediately. The mother in law went hysterical.
It's just natural, shocking, the females feel the shock more. The sister in law went hysterical. Immediately they started saying, Well, you know, how are you sure How could this happen? Oh my god. What am I gonna say to the sisters this is this is human reaction. Right and
Allah bless mishandled at that moment, this was all new for me as well. But basically at that moment to just, you know, take control of the situation. And I immediately started saying La la la la la, la, la, la, la la la la whatever Allah does, he does good. I started saying it very loud, to speak over their voices. And obviously, my what I intended here was to get my message into the ears so that they could come down and not say anything that would displease Allah subhanho wa Taala. And, you know, I thought about it after obviously, we revised our, our, our situation afterwards, like how did we because you want to be better? Right? It's a it's an abnormal situation. And I was
actually revising it. And I think a lion felt that it was guidance from Allah that I behaved in this way, because obviously, it's the first time and obviously, the first instinct that I had was to ensure that nobody said anything that displeased Allah subhanho wa Taala. So immediately, La Ilaha, Illa, Allah, Allah, Allah Rogers, and you say, to the English language, because people don't understand Arabic, they might know in Netherlands or in LA, or June, but at that moment, they're not feeling it. Right. So
Allah inspired me in this moment to take control of the situation. And I started speaking, saying this in a in a louder voice, and, and Hamdulillah, they come down, and they just tear it and tear and tear them. And then I asked him to come down to watch the faces, because of the two girls outside not to let them see them like this, because young girls will will send something happened.
And then Subhanallah, they actually asked the doctor to go see this mother who's passed away. So the sustain law and mother in law went to see and so Pamela, you know, the the heart monitor, it was beeping. It was it was actually beeping, not a beep of somebody who's alive, but a beep of somebody who's passed away. So somehow out of shock, out of shock, the mother in law is actually saying, Are you sure she's passed away, look at that Banita and so on and so forth. And the doctor then asked the nurses to switch off the monitor is suparna law and law he I have never ever, I'm not a medical doctor. So never even had to ever be in this particular scenario. Right.
But the point I mentioned here is human nature. That the wrong thing to do would be to tell them don't cry.
the wrong thing to do would be to tell them don't cry. The right thing to do is to harvest the situation, let them cry, but not in a way that displeases Allah subhanho wa Taala. In any case, later on, what happened was the children obviously there's two young girls Pamela, they came to find out that their mother passed away and immediately they started crying. Obviously, they never understood the the holistic meaning of passing away. But what they didn't know is the economist, a mother. And what happened was when I then arrived at the funeral home, I witnessed people stopping them from crying, I witness people telling them that if you cry, your mother's going to be hurt more
and you shouldn't cry, and your mother's gonna be punished more Subhanallah I don't know where these
these these type of understandings come into people's minds and people's hearts and and into communities, where they start saying things with Subhana Allah and Allah will be having fun. They say things which Allah subhanho wa Taala never revealed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to him? And he said, right. So obviously, and the father was in shock. He was in his own world. And he asked me to take care of the two girls. And SubhanAllah. I was tested by a lot now now to be with these two girls. What do you say to two young girls? It's a first time situation for me as well. Well, I am sharing with you a personal story. And this is our last class before we go for a break
and perhaps, you know, it can help us throughout the few months.
What do you do? It's the first time situation, right? I am here with two young girls. And SubhanAllah. What happened was they were they had the iPad trying to remain occupied. But they had pictures of their mother in the iPad. So I stepped out for a moment I come back, I see them both crying.
Again, why? Because they're looking at pictures of the mother SubhanAllah. I asked Allah for guidance. And I felt that Allah really helped me what I did was I went and sat down with them. And I said, Why are you crying?
And they just smiled with tears, obviously. Obviously, they respect. They knew who I was, they had this respect for me, the parents were bringing them to my programs or making them listen to my talk. So maybe their parents told them
that, you know, this is someone who teaches about a lie and so on and so forth. So so much respected. Well, why my heart was aching because they hurt him, but they still offered that smile. SubhanAllah and they didn't want to speak but they were tearing, so I wiped the tears off the face. And I said, Are you missing your mommy, you know? And I really felt this was guidance from Allah because what do you say? I said, Are you missing your mommy and they nodded their heads? Yes. And I said it's okay. You're allowed to miss your mommy. You're allowed to miss your mommy. It's a good thing that you miss your mommy it means that you love your mommy. Right? So every time you miss your
mom, it means that you love her. So never ever feel shy to miss your mommy. And if you want to cry, you can cry. never feel shy of these tears. Right? These tears mean that you love your mommy. Right? And and whilst I let them cry. I told them
So you know, what did your mommy teach you? Did she teach you about Allah? They said, Yes. I said, Did they teach you teach you about gender? They said, Yes. I said, What did she tell you about gender? And then she, they started speaking out. Oh, and it's amazing children are so innocent will lie. Immediately they start their minds, you know, changed, and the tears stopped flowing. And they said, Yeah, she taught us that Jenna has this and has that and has this and has that. And then
I said, Do you want to go to gender? And they said, Yes, she wanted to go to gender. I said, did she want you people to go to gender you to go? She said, Yes, she wanted to go to gender,
to gender. You know, that's where we where she is. Right? So Pamela, I'm just sharing with you the story because it means a lot to me, it was a, you know, a lot of people think that you know, you're a chef. So you're a mechanic, you're a robot, you're not a human being. And even this thing of saying you're a chef,
the chef is the title of hamdulillah. If people acknowledge your knowledge through it, as I said, last week, it's not that you know, you share so and so it doesn't mean that you have the title share that you, you, you, you you you have the reality of being one No, it's it's hamdulillah. In our time, we call people doctor, we call people lawyer. And if someone has been blessed to study Islam, then out of respect, we we call them, Chef, but I'm just paraphrasing what one of the youth who's in attendance here today, one of our young boys in attendance here today said, you know, Chef, the problem is the chefs, they like super human beings, they they come across with no emotion, we can't
relate to them. And we so you know, we go through difficulties in life. And we don't think that they go through those difficulties. And thus, we don't have them
to take guidance from and whatever he may be the advice of this young boy he's getting to me, so I'm sharing with you something personal. But you know, me, myself and hamdulillah with the knowledge that Allah has given me over the many years of study over the many years that Allah has put me in a dedicated fashion in front of some of the best minds of our time, some of the best teachers of our time will lie, I will be honest with you, nothing prepared me for the situation, nothing can prepare you, you know, in totality, yes, you have some preparation, but nothing can prepare you in totality to hear from a doctor firsthand that this person has passed away. And nothing can prepare you to
deal with the aftermath
of two young girls that were so close to their parents and to the mother especially, right. So I'm sharing with you something personal, that Allah subhanho wa Taala here I feel inspired me and guided me towards telling them to cry, and it's okay to cry. And the reason why I forcefully said this is because I know prior to the people who are telling them not to cry, you don't want to do this brothers and sisters, you don't want to be telling children not to cry, because if you do, so they'll think it's bad. And if they think it's bad, they won't do it in front of you. Because they scared of you. So they'll do it in private. And if they don't have enough private time, then it will
just end up becoming something bottled and bottled and bottled. And then they'll end up becoming people who are, you know, insula.
They only have comfort with themselves. They don't want to be with people, they want to separate from society. And this is not healthy for the development or not healthy for the progress or not healthy for the features. So something brothers and sisters, we should really, you know, educate ourselves as we've been talking about education in a large way. But even with regards to this, we should educate ourselves to speak things which we don't know. Because sometimes we can really end up messing up an entire child's life, because we gave them the wrong advice. Because we dealt with them in a way that was not upon the ideal, because we thought we knew too much and we didn't care to seek
advice from a professional for example, right? So don't be a means towards messing. Forgive the colloquial word here messing. But I want you to just drive the point home, right? That don't be a means of spoiling somebody's life, my dear brothers and sisters right? Don't come about with things that manzanilla will be having so bad that Allah subhanho wa Taala did not reveal right? Study the life of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam see how he reacted to things and, and and and understand that he is the perfect guide for us in everything. He teared some Allahu Allahu wa sallam as an adult. So what about a child? What about a child? Right? So anyway, this is just a personal
story that I'm sharing with you to highlight this point that we are allowed to practice human nature because it's human nature is beyond us. If we try to subdue human nature, then we are making ourselves something else. It's from human nature to cry. It's from human nature to feel sad. But Allah will not hold a sinful for tearing and for being said, What Allah subhanho wa Taala will hold us accountable for is if we say and do that, which contradicts what Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed. And Allah subhanho wa Taala did not tell us you're not allowed to cry. Allah subhanho wa Taala did not tell us you're not allowed to be sad. Allah subhanho wa Taala said you must not say
that which is disbelief and you must not act in a way as if you disbelief
Allah subhanho wa Taala
knows best. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. The scholars, brothers and sisters just move on very quickly they also discuss
the best females. The best females and
some scholars have said that Fatima robiola Anka was the best female and some said no, it was Khadija robiola one. And some say it was Asia or Viola Juana. And then there's a fourth view where the scholars say we don't have a view here. It's called a talk of a talk of is when the scholars say we we can't say for sure. This evidence is that show you know, the nobility of Asia the nobility of Fatima, the double nobility of Khadija robiola, Indus we don't say one was better than the other rather we just stop and say they all have narrations that testify to their noble way but I'm just citing this for you. Because if no payment from Allah Allah has mentioned it in his main book, and
also because Fatima viola, who is part of it, and she was from the daughters of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi
wasallam Sal, Allahu Allah, He wa sallam Allah subhanho wa Taala gets us with him. in general. I mean, as to the uncles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he had many uncle's from them was Hamza
who was titled The Lion of Allah and the Lion of his Rasul of His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Hamza bin Abdullah, and then a best and the famous Abu Talib. And who knows the name of Abu Dhabi. Does anyone know the name of Abu Talib? We always know him as Abu Talib. poly means the father of Pilate. But what was his name?
The scholars of Sierra say that his name was was was abdomen f was Abd manaf Abdul manaf this was the name of Abu Abu Talib also from the ankles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi. wasallam was Abu lahab his his fierce enemy, and the one who harmed him so badly.
him and his wife, right he was an uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now you tell me brothers and sisters, what can make blood harm blood? Right? Subhan Allah, may Allah protect us from misguidance and he had many other uncle's sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but these are from the famous uncle, they did tell you when we were discussing the importance of the character, that one of the uncle's of the prophets of Allah alayhi wa sallam was actually Abdullah character
was actually Abdullah Kappa, so they would even name their children, the servant of the Kaaba, as for the wives of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then his first wife was Khadija of the Allahu Allah and he had all his children with her except his son, Abraham, as we said, and she was the great supporter of of his sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And as we've always said that Allah subhanho wa Taala constantly prepared Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for Prophethood, even in who he allowed to be the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this teaches us brothers and sisters, the importance of choosing the right wife.
This is especially for the male's choosing the right wife and also for the females choosing the right husband, right, because we all have a vision or we should have a vision, we should have ambition, we should have this view of the world that you and I seek to create, right? We're not here just to waste time on Earth. Right? We have to bring value and we spoke about bringing value before. And we said that each and every one of us have to ask ourselves, right? What value are we going to bring here? Is it going to be that we just came in Winton and the earth didn't even feel us? This is not the way of a believer. So everyone has the ambition of the world that they seek to create
or should have should have a world that they seek to create a world that they would like to see when they're on their deathbed, right? This is when you bring value and and you know the owner should miss you and you pass away shouldn't be that you pass away nobody misses you. You know today sadly that. In most cases, we can only share the examples of for example, what will the world Miss if Coca Cola left? What will the world Miss if Microsoft left will will the world miss anything? For example, if Microsoft disappeared? What do you think brothers and sisters? if Apple disappeared? Well the world miss anything?
Yes or no?
Exactly. Right. So the world will miss a lot. Right? So what will the world miss the day you go? Right? So in your journey, you have to make correct decisions in everything that you do from those decisions is the major decision of who you choose to settle down with. Right You have to settle down with somebody who will be conducive to your
journey towards Allah subhanho wa Taala this has to be the case that you settle down with somebody that is conducive in your journey towards Allah subhanho wa Taala Khadija Ravi Allahu Allah was definitely conducive in the prophets journey. And in that which he had to do sallallahu alayhi wasallam we know what a great support, she was to him a major support from the beginning. From the time she believed in him when he came scared and saying, I saw what I saw. And she said those words, golden universal words, well, that Allah will never ever disgrace you don't worry about it. Whatever you saw, there's a reasonable explanation. You know, some of us will say, Are you hallucinating?
Olivia? Billa? You know, are you seeing things? What are you talking about this supernatural thing? Nobody sees these kinds of things. Are you okay? Are you taking your vitamins? Right? will immediately saying how's your vitamin D brother? Right? Do you need to see let's go for a blood test.
Here I should have
immediately believes him and says you, she mentioned all the wonderful things that he does and says Allah will never disgrace you. And she comes with the solutions. Let's go to my, someone close to me, who reads the scriptures of the previous prophets and he'll be able to help. So amazing team player, right? She she comes to situation and comes with the solution. Right? So this was Khadija rhodiola, who is the most conducive partner to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, especially at that part of his journey. Remember, at that moment,
he said it was only looking up. He was right at the bottom looking up. He was starting the journey. So he needed a mighty mighty mighty supporter. And our closest supporters are our spouses. And there was Khadija Allah who and and as we said he missed her a lot. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam even after she passed away, he would hear the voice of some of her friends and remember
his wife, Khadija robiola, one hand this is when we talk about marriages that lasts a lifetime, you know, marriages, which lasts a lifetime, you know, where you miss your spouse, even if you marry after she passes away, but you still miss her. And you make two alpha, right, and a wife misses a husband after he passes away Even if he remarries, but she misses him. That's what you call growing in love. You grow in love with each other, you grow in love with each other. And when we say growing in love, it lasts till the day you die as well, even if a lot takes them to Allah earlier. Right? This is the reality when you have an amazing marriage, which begins by choosing the right female to
marry and the female choosing the right husband to marry. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best last week we the last question we spoke about was dude, does our wife have to live with our parents and some of the students actually, it came to my attention that some of the students actually recorded that particular answer, and then used it in a way that I did not intend. I believe it It started flying around
with, you know, a portion that would give one the impression that I was saying that our wives did not have to be dutiful to our in laws. Full stop. Right? No, and that wasn't the case. So brothers and sisters, please. You know it, I know you didn't intend any harm. And I know some people obviously are going to their own circumstances and situations. But it shouldn't be the case that we
record something and then spread it in the way that it was unintended. And out of good manners and courtesy, if you have recorded something and want to spread it, then it's good manners to ask
the owner of the statement first, so you know, the right message to me and hamdulillah you all have access to me when you land, via the forums, you write in and you say, look, this is what I want to do, can I and then I can advise, right? Because the last thing anyone wants is to teach people about Islam, and then those lessons are used to cause harm. Right. And don't take this lightly. Brothers and sisters, some marriages go into disarray, because of the view that you don't have to be
dutiful to your to your in laws. It actually goes into disarray, where we wives take a stance, and they they stand in front of the wish and will of the husband and say no, we will not do it. We don't have to and we're not and it's not disrespectful, and then it becomes an ugly situation. Now, when the scholars discussed discussed this, they discussed it in a particular way. And it's not as if they didn't advise to certain ideals. And it's wrong to take one part of the shediac without understanding that part in light of other parts and I spoke to you last week about extremism. And extremism happens when you end up taking one part of the Sharia and you refuse to understand that
part in light of other parts. The Sharia is a whole Now, what I did do brothers and sisters I have made a recording about this issue.
This issue or this question that was asked this hour Why do our wives have to live with our in laws and inshallah on Monday that clip
We'll be that video will be released, and it will be sent to you all. inshallah and I want you all to have a watch in about 17 to 18 minutes, I discuss the matter and I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant me balance in the discussion and I pray that they balance that. So
in chavon, Monday, brother a sham will send out a link to every one of you all for you to view and that link is the answer
to the last question that was asked last week.
It's quarter to 11. And by default, we should go into q&a But given that this is the last session, let's just continue a little bit I do want to finish this particular portion. Before we close for the summer break inshallah. The next wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was soda was soda.
And so the bit xmr and karate Yeah, she was the wife that actually gave her night up to eyeshadow, viola while she gave her night to Asia, because she knew that was a colossal Allahu alayhi wa sallam love the eyeshadow, viola and her and so she she gave her night to eyeshadow, viola and her and this way, I showed her the love and I had two nights with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the other wife besides soda had one night because soda gave up highlighted, the scholars have deduced from this the permissibility of a female giving up some of her rights, if she feels that her husband will divorce. This is just a discussion, by the way, right? So sometimes a female feels that my
husband is going to divorce me for some reason or the other. And it's better for me to be in the marriage than being out of the marriage. So then she gives up her rights or rights to being housed, for example, our rights to being clothed or fed, for example, she gives up some of her rights, it's it, the scholars have deduced the permissibility of doing so. But this doesn't mean that if you give up the right that you can't take it back, this is what and this is a point of discussion between the scholars but Allah subhanho Allah knows best this what seems
a balance in terms of the views that even if you give up this view, and you want to change your mind, you can change your mind why because it's a it's a right that Allah has given you the Sharia has given you this right, the right to being fed, clothed and housed, and the right to having your, your night in the case of you being married to a husband who has more than one wife. Right? So it's a it's a right given to you by the Sharia. So you can choose to pause that right. And you can choose to play that right. So according to the correct view, and Allah knows best that when you do give up that right, then if a time comes when you feel you'd like to put that right into practice and play
again, then you may then you may it's not that you gave it up so it's canceled for good. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. This again is just a footnote. Then we have a shot of the Allahu Allah and she was a special wife. And she was the virgin wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah subhanho wa Taala guided Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam towards marrying her from above the seven heavens because Allah subhanho wa Taala central to the loves of Allahu Allah He was
to marrying eyeshadow Viola and her by
him seeing a vision him seeing a vision of vision. And that vision entailed
an angel actually teaching Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam about this command from Allah subhanho wa Taala
as the scholars of the future, say by holding a type of goblet with silk, and Allah subhanho wa Taala and was best so it was understood from this vision. This goblet was silk, the purity of eyeshadow, the law and the instruction to
the instruction to
And her and he married her sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in chawan as the scholars of Sierra say, while she was six years of age, and he consummated the marriage with her, as well in chawan.
In the first year after Hera whilst she was nine years of, of age, so and as a scholar say, the scholars have to say that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never married a virgin besides her so she was the only virgin wife that was Lhasa, La La was Adam had end revelation would not come through Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he was in the home of any of his wives besides the home of Ayesha rhodiola Juana so she was special
in regards to the sun and we do know that we also have it in the Quran. We have it in the Quran, specific to Asia, in the story of the if, right when she was accused of being something which she would never do around the Allahu Allah and Allah revealed to purify her so she is special because of
This in fact, you know the wives used to,
if you ponder over the Sierra and some of the narrations you will see there was this competition between the wives with regards to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam no doubt.
And, and even you know with regards to the religion because we know that one of the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and will come to her, Allah subhanho wa Taala married her to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from above the seven heavens. Right and she has ayat in the Quran. So she would actually boast the other wives and say, you know, you with regards to all of you, you know, Allah Subhana, who your family's married you to the messenger, but with regards to me, alarm added me to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam So, you know, they would all take their pride and, and and look at
this specific and unique clauses and cases and and put it in front of the other wives and we know that they obviously with regards to zeta there's an ayah in the Quran as well. So she was proud because of this, that she had an idea as well. And then when the idea came down
later with regards to
the nature of the law, and how now has the the importance and privilege of having an idea that will be recited to the day of the AMA about her robiola and how In any case, that's just
a nice to know. Allah subhanho wa Taala get us with our mothers in general, they after I should have the Allahu Allah we have helped, helps have been dermaplane hubub rhodiola and so helps I then became the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we know you know the relationship between haves and have the Allah Allah and have said was not also very old. So you know, that tendency of being kind to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and competing so they have the rivalry, they have some nature of the Allahu anhu map. And
through this, Omar Abdullah, who and became the
imagine the father in law, right, the father in law of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam sola sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a human being, he had father in law's he had mother in laws and so on and so forth. Right Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allah became his father in law as well. Right? I'm just highlighting this because the question was about in laws and wives and in laws, right. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also had English. Then after hafsa we have Zaida bint hoceima. And,
or, she's better known as Xena bit Jose Maria, Emeril Harris, right. And she was from the children of Helen even Arabic.
And this was a wife from the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And then we have the story or the famous story of cinema, where we all became the next wife of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam. And basically, Sonoma. She had an amazing husband known as Abu Salah, and
her full name was hillbilly Abbey omiya and she was alkota she was Russia. She was on the crush, and
the wife of Abu Salah robiola Why?
It is said it is said that on Salah was the last of the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to have passed away. Right now her story is that she lost obviously her husband and she was very sad and she became You know, it was extremely difficult for her.
She was it was extremely difficult for her and she thought you know what, you know?
You know, she she had her children, it was tough. She loved her husband dearly. And in her mind, there was no one better than
Abu Salah Ravi Allahu Allah and then she was taught this is that, you know, when you go through a difficulty, then you you you make this to our to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, that Allah ease my affairs in this difficulty or assist me through the difficulty that I'm going through and, and give me in as a replacement to what I've lost something better. I'm paraphrasing the door. Right. So some of the scholars of Sierra state that she would make the dua that Oh Allah please ease
my affairs and help me during this difficulty, but she found it difficult to say and give me better than what I've lost. Why? Because she felt that there was nothing better than
nothing better than
a Bossa Nova robiola one. But because she knew that this was a teaching from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this shows submission to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is what Islam is, right? Islam is about Islam and submitting to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. She went ahead and said, walk with me. Hi Rahman. And Allah give me
as a replacement. What about something better and the scholars of Sierra
I say that after she said this, a knock was heard. And the messenger came with the proposal of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. How amazing
is that? How amazing is that? So Panama, right? So this is what happens. Brothers and sisters when you follow the Sharia for the sake of Allah put your trust in Allah. This is a moment of taqwa where you say, you know what, whatever it means to me. I'm going to follow what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I wouldn't do that which Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed. And then she goes on to say that Allah, Yanni I thought there can be no one better than that of Abu Salah. And I get a proposal to marry the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and after her death, she was married to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they differ as to who got married because we know that every
prophet needs every sister or female needs a well he needs a wedding. So who got her married to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Was it already been hubbub? As some narration say? Or was it? Because
your loved one was actually Oh, it stated that he was.
He was her cousin. He was her cousin, her paternal cousin, or was it Omar haiyang son. And what's more clear, Mr. Mohammed supports the view that it was a young son but the scholars say that he was too young to be someone who could marry
his mother to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And perhaps
he didn't get the narration that described the age of
Omar the son of Osama Ravi Allahu, and so that's why he supported the view that it was a son but what's clear, what seems more plausible is that it was it could have been
a paternal cousin. In any case, this is a discussion between the scholars and it is a long one. But in reality, and W Ola
and W Ola meaning, I mean, unfussy him, the Messenger of Allah subhanahu tiada has a precedence above the rest of the believers, right? So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doesn't need someone to have a wedding for him to be married to, for him, for her to become his wife, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can be the valley and get the female married to him. This is a special rank and precedents that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave to
sorry to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So irrespective of the difference of opinion, the bearing in terms of this marriage of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam to her is very little Why? Because in the first place Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not require a female traveler when he because he is a rally in the first place.
So he doesn't require her to have a rally in the marriage. Between himself sort Allahu Allahu wa sallam and her Okay, then the next wife after that was a bit jash
it is said that she was the daughter of his maternal aunt, the daughter of his maternal aunt, and this was the scene of I was speaking about earlier as a in a bit Joshua and, and Allah subhanho wa Taala has an idea about in his book, it sort of is number 37 Lm cavas a de minha baratza watching a cat. And obviously there was there's a story behind this why Allah subhanho wa Taala got Xena, married to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this was to dispel this concept of adoption, right because we know that Dana was married to
Zainab was married to zayde and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
considered as a to be his son, that's the love the pursuit, lots of love, and he was selling headphones eight. So Allah subhanho wa Taala
revealed a revelation, right to say that we should call people by the names of the fathers and hold them true to the lineage. So most of Hannah who Allah revealed is witch cancer cancelled out this concept of what we say in the Arabic language at Tibet knee.
Right at 70, which is this concept of adoption, where you take a child and you give the child your name.
This is not allowed in Islam, we are fostering and fostering comes with these rules and regulations, but to to adopt a double knee where you make this person your child and give this person your name, and then the child grows up. And
we say that this child can marry your daughter's, for example, or there's no hijab between this child and your wife, for example, this is incorrect. This is not from Islam, because this child has his own lineage and from the objectives of the Sharia is to protect lineage. And it was the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah subhanho wa Taala
Cause all the sons of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to pass away
early or before the death of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So nobody could claim Prophethood to another person after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Right. And we know the fitna between the Shia now and there with regards to Riley robiola one, and he was a cousin of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So imagine what the fitna would have been had been a Zaid Ibn Muhammad through adoption if they took this name, for example, or had any of the sons of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam lived, right so Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed laws putting everything back into perspective.
And then to further prove that they It was not the son of lust. Obviously, Xena was the wife of eight. So
Allah subhanho wa Taala
commanded that this divorce happens between Zaid and Xena and then when they
have finished her, Allah subhanho wa Taala married her to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this way nobody can say it was a son, because if he was a son, you wouldn't be allowed to marry his wife. Right. So, this was the wisdoms behind this particular story. Then we have the wife known as joy Rhea, and then we have Ohm Habiba.
Ravi Allahu anhu ultramarine. And then we have Sophia, Sophia, and Sophia was considered to be a very, pretty female
robiola. And she was a wife of a prophet because she was the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she was also a daughter of a prophet because she comes from the lineage of Prophet Haroon, the brother of Musa alayhis salam, right. So she comes from this lineage, many people perhaps do not know the setup and the blue paper really highlights this in
highlights this in mind. And in fact, with regards to Sofia, obviously, she was taken as a captive, right so she was taken in as a slave, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married her and made her ma her, her freedom, her freedom. And the scholars have deduced from this the permissibility of paying as a matter of female freedom that if she is a slave, you say your manhood is that you will be free, you won't you will not be considered a slave anymore. So even if the, you know, within the marriage and outside of the marriage, right, and obviously this is in the system of slavery, the system which has been abolished. today. In fact, there's a long Islamic discussion
regarding slavery in Islam, but this is not the place for you. Perhaps in the future. If you remind me we can discuss it in sha Allah. Then after Sophia we have maimunah
maimunah and maimunah got the Manage between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and maimunah Bella Juana happened after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
came out of Iran because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married her after he completed his Amara, right on Moroccan Kava meaning remember that the Muslims went for ombre and then the Quraysh prevented them from coming. And then it was agreed that the Muslims would come the following year. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went to complete that Amara, the following year, after the umbra he married maimunah there's a difference of opinion between the scholars. Why because we have an erosion of our best that says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married her during his Amara. But this is incorrect because we know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
made forbidden anyone getting married during a wild stay in the state of a home of being a wily wild stay in the state of harm, meaning they're not allowed to marry other people, nor are they allowed to get married. This is from the things that are not allowed during the state of Islam and we don't matter to relations is also not allowed during the State of Iraq. So
our best is narration here is not considered. And the scholars explained that even our best was only 10 years old, when
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married my mother. So he probably narrated that which he perceived, right, he perceived that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was still,
you know, in the state of harm, he was a 10 year old boy, and he perceived that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam was in the state of harm when in reality he was not. So the correct opinion is what he's not allowed to get married in a state of harassment. The correct opinion with regards to maimunah was that he sallallahu alayhi wasallam redditor. After, after,
after, but you know, we take pride from the start, look at even our best rhodiola horn, the bravery to narrate what he saw, and to teach us how conscious he was of the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam as this young 10 year old boy, and that is why it's incorrect to compare a 10 year old a 10 year old
Before to today, over a 10 year old of in one demographic location to a 10 year old in another democratic democratic location. And this is why the whole discussion about the Prophet sallallaahu Allah He was in America of the Allahu Akbar, from the worldview of the Western and what they consider paedophilia is a fluid discussion is a fluid discussion, because females mature far quicker than and if we consider the nature of the law and how it was only 18 years old when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam passed away. And she narrated the most Hadees from the females and was a pillar of Hadith in the era of the Sahaba. Then
what more do you need to be convinced that we will be talking about a whole different sea? Right? We're talking about a whole different scene. And I literally view the discussion when you start comparing a nine year old from the time of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam to a nine year old today, similar to somebody saying they want to compare the American system to a human being today, or the people have added the mood to a people. Today, there's no comparison, we know that Adam and Eve Salaam was was bigger than a few football pitches. Right. And he said that he was 60 cubits in height. Right. And in fact, you know, in
I think it was in Saudi Arabia, they actually tried to make a soap, the soap of Adam and he said on based on what we find related to his description in the Sunnah. Right? And he just Google it, try and Google the shirt of Adam, and see what comes up, they needed an entire crane, and football pitch to raise this job above, which means Adam and inshallah will take half a step and he would have completed a football pitch. Once the footballer today needs to run and sprint and can become out of breath to get from one end to the other end. And then we want to compare the past to the present. So it's a different thing. So you cannot compare a nine year old girl of before to a nine year old
today, just like for example, our grandmothers what they could do at 15 and 16 years of age, the girls of today perhaps Can't we know that some people have grandmothers that were married that 16 and 17. But today you wouldn't you wouldn't even consider it because the maturity level of the human is not the same as before. And this is a space of a few decades that we're discussing. So what about when we discuss the difference between a few centuries and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best so
that sort of last one Allahu Allahu wa sallam married maimunah robiola who. And
it is said brothers and sisters that from the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
Mashallah, Abdul Mateen has actually seen the picture and he's he's in shock. He's in great shock. He's saying we are like ants in front of it. Bye.
Going to end just now but the Xiaomi Shams giving me a red card is telling me the time's up. I know it's up. This is our last question. Listen, please bear with me brothers and sisters.
These are disputed view that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a wife known as Rihanna. This is disputed between the scholars and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best but what there's no difference of opinion about is that a pseudo masl Allahu alayhi wa sallam had
nine wives when he passed away or he passed away on nine wives
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah subhanho wa Taala delegate us with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and our mothers in general. I mean brothers and sisters, this brings us to the end of

scholars are fifth have differences of opinion. The reason why I want to do this is because our discussions will become more physically based. And we are studying a book then the lesson I don't want it to confuse anyone here that has led to other opinions or practice one of the four or a method other than the motherboard, which was predominantly Hanbury. I don't want it to be a means of confusion. So I will share with you a short discussion a short presentation on why the scholars of phip may have a difference of opinion regarding a matter even though the revelation was one and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was one and then inshallah we will kick off with the guidance
of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pertaining to do and to mum and wiping over his socks and his turban. inshallah, I love you all for the sake of Allah, everything.
