the early years of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his journey to the countryside. And if you recall at the beginning, I mentioned to you certain names that I wanted you to
such as Baraka, such as the waiver, such as haleema, such as Amina, such as Muhammad, such as robiola, will he remember that? I said take heed of these names.
And the reason why I said that is because we taking lessons from this era if we look at Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his life
the people around him had amazing names.
Amina, which means refers to protection and security and someone content Amina. Then one of his characters Baraka blessings.
Then you have
the one of his foster mothers through Ava, which refers to rewards. Then you have Halima
his other foster mother Halima somebody soft, somebody gentle, somebody's caring. Then you have his name Muhammad, the praise one. Then you also have the month in which he was born Robbie, Robbie, Robbie refers to this this type of spring this happy moment where things flower, right? Amazing names tschichold Islam even TV with Allah Allah. He says
everybody has a portion
of the names that they carry and the names that they surrounded with.
We take this lesson
the lesson of being careful and particular with the names that we choose for our children when we name this is what we learn from this event in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam How to Choose good names for our children. Some people Mashallah they have amazing methodologies in choosing the children's name you hear names you see some panela Where did you get this name from? It's as if you know there is open there must have closed the eyes flicked a few pages, and then just you know,
No, no, Chopin is not a good name. Let's Let's try it again.
Right. It's as if we're just picking names from Anyway, there's just a lighthearted moment for you all.
We should choose the best names for our children. The best names for our children, names which have precious meanings names. Even better if the name was the name of a great man who walked the face of this earth. Mohamed ashmit
Abubakar Rama was the man Ali rob the Allahu anhu. And before that, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. They said names Musa Ibrahim la Kabbalah will make you understand this name Ibrahim, use of Allahu Akbar
Beautiful Names. Today we say no, you know those are old fashioned names. You don't give us a name. So what did you have a boy or a girl or boy? Why don't you name Abdullah? That's a good old fashioned Yes. We want you know the current names.
The infection names, what are the infection names? Like I'm going to tend to follow Allah Allah, what's infection and what's out of fashion. Right. And today you find some panela. We give our children names. If you Google these names that then
The biggest thing is NP NP professors out there alarmist and, yes, they have a nice tune to it.
But in reality,
as this great scholar said, Everybody has a portion from the name that they can
choose names of people.
That way the giants that walk the face of this earth so your child can grow up
and anticipate being like the person who made his name famous. This is what we learned from the Sierra sun about old fashioned names, the substantial remember we spoke about in one of the lessons personality versus character? What do you want to be a personality? Or do you want to be shallow? Or do you want to have character and be a person of substance
so we are a portion of the names that we carry. This was the last lesson that I wish to share with you yesterday, but time ran out, and hamdulillah blessed us to cover this lesson today.
Moving on, my dear brothers and sisters, we want to discuss today B is the letter Allah insha. Allah.
We want to discuss the opening of the chest of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Finally, we we got to it, the opening of the chest of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This incident is very famous in this era. And there's more than one Hadith, which mentions this incident, there's slight differences in the narrative, and inshallah we'll try and take a couple. But the essence of the of the story and the narration is the same. The chest of Rasulullah sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam, was opened.
If we look at the Hadith in Sahih, Muslim the hadith of Anasazi, Allah when he says that gibreel Allah He Salam came to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whilst he was playing with the other boys. And remember, we spoke about the countryside yesterday, that was a stable environment, and they were allowed to be children to run around to play. There weren't
any obstacles that stop them from free play, like caravans coming into the city and leaving the city because a small brace, right? So he was playing with his foster brothers, and the other boys. And he says that gibreel took hold of him and threw him to the ground and opened his chest and took out his heart. You can imagine Yeah, I mean, when you when you obviously this is, this is something we haven't seen. Right? So we don't know exactly how it was. But if you think of a doctor that operates on you, and so on and so forth, and the process and the intricacies here, you have this shows Pamela, Allah who I laquisha in Cardiff, Allah is upon all things Eva, take him, put him on the
ground, slip the heart, take out the heart, the chest, take up the heart. Right, this is what jabril did. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam the best of all angels, be the king of the angels, the boss of the angels, Sabrina Anna is salam, a mighty angel,
the certain matters that are specific to jabril alayhis salam such as revelation, and we know the famous Hadith, that when Allah subhanho wa Taala love someone he calls out to gibreel and jabril starts ascending the heavens and the angels are all excited in anticipation. Subhana Allah Allah has summoned jabril What does Allah have for gibreel? And Allah says to gibreel iF gibreel I love this person, so love him. And then gibreel starts descending the heavens and as he descends, they start asking, What did I tell you? What did Allah tell you a mighty angel Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, he has specifics that other angels do not. And your brain starts telling them Allah told me that he
loves this person and commanded me to love him. So the angels of those heavens, they want to have a portion of these gifts that go to God and so they said, We will also love him. Until the creations of the skies love this person. Subhan Allah May Allah make us beloved to him, and make the angels love us instruct them to love us. I mean, this is done my dear brothers and sisters by pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala and not pleasing the people. Right? This is a footnote, and we all love footnotes.
We please Allah and not the people.
When you do that, and the people are upset with you, Allah causes these guys to love you.
And eventually, the love from these guys will be so overwhelming that the people on earth will be forced to love you as well. It's a win win situation when you love Allah and love for Allah and do for Allah and leave for Allah and speak for Allah and remain silent for Allah and worship only one Allah subhanho wa Taala
Sarah took out his heart. And from there he took out a clot of blood and said, this was the hairpin shape of you. And then he washed his heart in a vessel of gold that was filled with Zamzam. This blessed water. That was from the bedrock of his marriage it Solomon Ibrahim alayhis salam, then he put his heart back in
and, or he put the heart together, returned it back to its place. Now when this happened, the boys immediately obviously this was this was crazy. I mean, you know,
as some of the youth say, in some countries, they go this is sick.
You know, that. I had, I went to the UK and I was saying he goes, he goes, Yeah, that's sick. He really? You mean that's bad? Sarah has very good.
It's a really sick means good. They say yes. When you say that sick, that means it's good.
I shall sign of the times, isn't it? The evolution of language? You know, when we're growing up, there was slang as well. And our teachers used to tease us they say, you know, when you guys grow up, I don't know what type of shifts you will guys will be, you know, what, what speeches will be given to your audiences, you know, all the slang words will be coming out but to handle I didn't happen when we when we let the dean it fixed us up.
So they ran quickly to Halima. Obviously, she's in charge of him. This is this is something which no one can imagine. So she went to her. And they said to her, or they went to her, and they said to her, that Muhammad has been killed. That's the first thing you think about somebody, his heart has been taken out, he's been killed. And they went to him. Obviously, they all ran haleema. And these boys went to him. And they saw that he had a discolored coloration of his skin was slightly discolored. And he said, ns the narrator of this head, he says, I used to see the mark of the stitchings on his chest, where they stitched his heart. I used to sit amazing. Right ins was a
companion he passed away very late. my memory serves me right this is the hadith of NSE been Malik there was another ns but this is the Hadith of the ins that
passed away very late. And this is the unece that was
in the service of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam for several years, always looking after his affairs, and he says that I was in the service of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for so many years. Not once did he ever tell me why did you do this? If I did it, or why didn't you do it? If I didn't do it
sallallahu alayhi wasallam This was him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have another
narration, which is considered acceptable as well. And this narration says that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I was being taken off by the women of benu. Sadie Bakker, meaning Halima. So I went off with a son of hers, along with some of our goats. And this is a sign that was sort of the scholars, when they when they look at this narration, they say he was four years old when his when his chest was cut. Why? They say because we cannot imagine a two year old or somebody younger than four years older than four years of age, actually looking after goats or sheep. Right. So the fact that in this narration, he says, we went out it wasn't just about playing, we also took
this to the go to the sheep out.
to shepherd them, this is a sign that he was full. So in this duration, we have a specific thing. The first one said he went out to play this one tells us that that there was something extra than playing and that was also the fact that they were acting as shepherds to the flock, which means Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was around four years of age and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. He says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we did not take any provisions with us. So I said, Oh, my brother Go and bring us some provision from our mother, meaning our foster mother. not his real mother. His real mother was Amina. She was in Makkah from our foster mother. So my brother went
off and I remained with the head. Then, two wide beings appeared in the sky. They were flying. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Kandhamal Hassan. It was as if they were two Eagles as if they were two Eagles he says then one said to the other, Is it him? Subhan Allah, imagine how vibrant this generation is. Right? A lot of adjectives in it, I mean is a lot of description. Is it him? So the other said yes. So they hastened immediately and took hold of me and threw
upon the ground on my back, and then they split my chest and extract extracted two black coats from it. And one of them said to his companion, bring me ice water, and he washed my insides with it. Then he said, Bring me slow water, and he washed my heart with it. When he said, Bring me tranquility. And then he planted it in my heart law.
Allah Allah, Allah, Allah He taught my inoculum
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, indeed it is what the remembrance of Allah that the hearts become tranquil.
In this narration, he says this angel said, Bring me tranquility, and it was planted in the heart of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, he says, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then one of them said his companion right now, so it up. So he sewed it up, and sealed it with the seal of prophethood. Then one of them said to the other, place him upon a scale and place 1000 of his nation upon another scale law, one upon the other scale, to show the relevance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in this globe, and on this earth, Allah subhanho wa Taala His Messenger says, so I saw 1000 people above me, and I feared that some of them are going to fall upon me. And he said, If his whole nation
were weighed against him, he would out weigh them they were having a conversation between themselves like doctors have on the operating on you, you don't know you're sleeping. Right? You under anaesthetic. They talking you don't know what they say. Maybe they talking about dinner last night and you think if you were awake, you be super scared. So Pamela, you cutting my heart and talking about last night's dinner? casual conversation, right? Allah who I really am, I'm not a doctor. I don't know what they do. inshallah is more serious than that.
But what do you get from this, the angels are having a discussion here. Right? So he says, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is witnessing this. He says that they said, If his whole nation were weighed against him, he would outweigh them. And then they went off and left me Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I became very scared. And I went back to my mother and informed her of what I had experienced. So I wish that I had been mistaken for somebody else. He didn't know what happened to him. So he he hoped, you know, sometimes mistaken identity. Right? somebody knocks you to the authorities, you say, I hope this is mistaken identity. Because I've done
nothing worthy of, of whatever you know, of authorities knocking on my door, right? So insha Allah, Allah make this mistake and identity that when he's done, it's done. Right? insha Allah, so he went running, hoping this is mistaken identity. And
she told him, I interest you to Allah protection. So she prepared a camel offers for writing, please Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the saddle, and wrote behind me until we reached my real mother Amina. Then she said, I have fulfilled my trust and my responsibility. And she told her what had happened to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. But she says this never alarmed. The mother of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
What would happen to a parent heart attack? Really? Are you serious? I think you having a delusion. What do you mean a heart was taken out put back in persons in front of me, everything's looking fine. You show you you're not diluted. You're not what do they say? You know, when you fuzzy in the mind, right?
Right. I know she wasn't allowed.
And she said to Halima, that when he came out from me. I saw light which Shawn and reveal the palaces of shadows. So have Allah Subhana Allah, the scholars have a bit of discussion regarding this.
This light that came out of out of Amina and shot which lit up the palaces of Sharman, exactly when it happened. But this is not our discussion right now. The fact is, this is what she said. Right? In this particular narration, which means she was prepared to accept that this son or this child is a special one. Like Yaqoob alayhis salam Lent. When you serve Allah He Salam was young, that this son is a special one.
Now, as we said, according to the correct opinion, this happened with the sudo Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was for right, for the reason cited the fact that he was in the second generation we we learned that he was actually acting as a shepherd to the head. Right. There is another time in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when his chest was open. When was this?
During the Iran, Iraq, during the Islamic Raj, we have authentic and authentic narration that states that his chest again
the chest of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, we learned many lessons from this incident. Let's, let's take a few. Firstly we learn brothers and sisters, the preparation of our Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam for prophecy, he was being prepared all everything that was happening the most preparation. And we discussed in our last episode, that he was being prepared for prophecy before he was born because he was born as an orphan. So he was already receiving a life different to others, his experiences with different his maturity, or his levels of maturity, while most definitely greater than others, right. And this preparation continued, such as in this incident.
Now, this teaches us something very important that if you and I want greatness, greatness, we don't want to be mediocre. We don't want to be average. We don't want to be like everybody else. We want to have greatness, then, then you have to start early. It requires an early start.
Those who have kids, we have ambitions for our kids, we are allowed to have ambitions for our kids. Yes, they must make the major life decisions by you know, by themselves, you must guide them and equip them to make the decisions who should they they should marry, what profession they want to take what degree they want to study, we should guide them help them make the right decision, but the decision should be there. But every parent does have some form of
wish and dream for the child. It could be you want your child to be happy. It could be you want him to have extra special manners. It could be you want him to be so close to Allah, a child that tears for the sake of Allah. These are general ambitions these are ambitions that do not pollute the child's ability to be independent. In fact, it will always be good for the child to have this and this is important good character, especially my dear brothers and sisters. Before even becoming a habit of the Quran. Many parents asked me we want our child to become a happy they say Why?
I want to understand what's your thought process.
Rather you teach him good manners. That's compulsory, becoming a habit isn't and if you can do both, then that's better. But I just want to bring your attention to something which is overlooked good manners. SubhanAllah how many files do we have that don't have good manners? What area to build, they don't represent the Quran that they carry will not protect us And forgive us Allah understand. They think they're doing good and they're getting sin they are receiving sins for it.
This is true brothers and sisters, you know, our scholars teach us that not every liquor is a means of getting reward some liquor, you get sense for it because you've done it in a in an innovative way.
in a way that's considered bigger, or you've done it for any for some other reason other than Allah. That's why I tell the brothers You know, sometimes you sitting in a gathering something happens and someone shouts duck weed and everybody Allahu Akbar. I tell them brothers, hold on. Why are you saying Allahu Akbar and why are you saying that? This is just ro excitement? Are you remembering that you remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala
and remembering a lot comes with edibles.
It has its additive as well right? It has its added as long as you remember you haven't added been doing it that's fine. Right?
It's important that we remind the oma so it doesn't just become fashion. It becomes it becomes fashion we forget this is deca
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says many recites recites the Quran in the Quran custom. I was gonna say they don't look after the correct recitation of the Quran. Tajweed the Maharaja, they don't look after the message of the Quran. The Quran says okay Masada and observe the salah and they fall away from the Salah. The Quran is calling you to good character and you have bad character May Allah protect Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kinda Hello qu Al Quran. His character was the Quran. The Quran nurtured him. We know that in the month of Ramadan Subhana Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kinda he didn't know he was the best of people. He had the greatest
quality in his worship. He had the greatest quality in everything that he did. The Sahaba say, and in Ramadan, he was even better. If you thought no one could top it he would top it even in Ramadan. And I pointed over this was my dear brothers and sisters. I've pondered over this because there's another generation would say is that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Ramadan. He would revise the Quran with gibreel this was a mighty revision.
And we know he, his character was the Quran. He was nurtured by the Quran. So if he's revising the Quran with jabril, Shawnee, this is going to bring about a different level of excellence. This he was more charitable in Ramadan even more kind and so on and so forth. sallallahu alayhi wasallam right. So we ask Allah to protect us.
being amidst the group that lack diligence with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Coming back to the point, you have ambition as a parent, you want your child to be happy, not just an average having a great happy not just to have average character, great character. When does it start?
When does it start? In the case of children,
when do you think
before they're born, yes, before you even got married. It starts by making dua
and then choosing the right spouse.
