So we ask Allah to protect us
being amongst the group that like diligence with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Coming back to the point, you have ambition as a parent, you want your child to be a happy, not just an average have 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 do
and then choosing the right spouse.
Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was being prepared before he was even born. Take the lessons, this is step two Sera, let's learn. Let's ponder. Right? He was being nurtured before he was born. Allah took his father away. We saying for you to instigate greatness in your child's life. It starts from before they born, by making do choosing the right wife, naming them the correct name and starting young with them. From the first breath, start putting them on the way of greatness. You know, there's this famous study done by Anders Ericsson. It wasn't famous when he did when he did it. But a famous author, American author, by the name of Malcolm Gladwell, made this if you heard of him,
Malcolm Gladwell, he made this theory famous in his book called outliers, right? He made this famous theory, this theory, this research of Anders Ericsson, famous in outliers, outliers. It's a book, it's a type of biography in studying different
personalities, people who became great and is trying to understand the secret for success. Right. And in it, he mentions, he mentions this study of Anders Ericsson. which states that for you to be excellent and great in what you do. You need to have practiced it for 10,000 hours.
Well, some people are thinking do I would live that long? Yes, you do.
You do. Insha. Allah, Allah grant his work in our life. 10,000 hours, right. Obviously, this is on average, right? I think I think after outliers, I think many people, many books and blogs and articles that came out, in my humble view, misrepresented the study, because they started saying you need 10,000 hours period. And that's not true. differs from person to person. Obviously, some people less, some people know, but that's fine. On average, he saying three is research. Right? You need a 10,000 hours to be the best. And they put it to around 10 years, 10 years of doing it. 10 years of doing it before you're a person of excellence, which means if you start from your child, by the time
he's born by the age of 10 is going to be at somebody else is going to be the best in that field. SubhanAllah
we don't care about that study, because we have Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the best of examples and this is where we landed from first. Okay, so this is the first thing that we learned. Start early. It starts before you get married, even for our sisters, right? The sisters, you know, choose the right man. It doesn't have to be the man that can earn you a million dollars. It's got to be the man that can raise
a priceless family.
May Allah understand the standing I mean, we also learn from this incident My dear brothers and sisters the infallible nature of Rasulullah sallallahu. Allah He was an the infallible, he was infallible. What was infallible in in terms of rissalah in terms of washy, in terms of
releasing to us, the teachings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He never made a mistake. What he said to us was from Allah was from Allah. And the way he said it was exactly how it came to him. Because the angels operated on him. He was free from mistake in religion.
And he was free from having the ability to commit major sins free from it, we must believe it. This incident teaches us this is a clear, so there's no mistaking religion. And when we say there's no mistaking religion, we also say that there's nothing
that he was supposed to teach us that he forgot to teach us or did not release to us. Even from this angle. We say he was perfect, which means there's no room for B there.
There's no room for B there is no room for somebody to innovate something in the religion and southwest
ripping a line in such a way that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam didn't do. Because if you believe Muhammad Rasul Allah, I worship Allah based on this man's teachings. And you believe he was Maxim and infallible especially in religion, there was no mistake. And no mistake also entails that he didn't forget to teach us anything, or he didn't withhold anything from us. All this dictates that you only worship Allah subhanho wa Taala upon his way, upon his way, there can be no better way than the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam la caja Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Look at Canada, he rasulillah he swear to the Hashanah indeed, in the Messenger of Allah was a perfect
example. A perfect example. For for who for the one who intends Allah and the after. What do you intend in your bed? You intend Allah? What do you intend in your bed you intend to hear after Allah says you intend Allah and you intend to hear after follow Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the perfect example. Allah says, well, we're Jeddah cabal and Fahad, Allah reveals to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we found you not upon complete guidance and we guided you. We found you searching, how to worship Allah. You didn't know how to Yes, you didn't commit adultery, you didn't consume alcohol. You didn't complete the carbon naked, you didn't bury females alive. You
didn't prostrate to idols, you didn't want to lay in hand and you are under the care of Allah subhanho wa Taala and angels operated on you as you are growing up sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but you did not know how to worship Allah for her. So we guided you and taught you how to worship Allah, we reveal to you a Cora Bismillah be kalevi hanoch
that's why you see we need the Sierra also to know how to understand the Quran. It's wrong to interpret the Iowa Jeddah cabal land.
And we Some people say we found you misguided This is incorrect. Because bol in the Arabic language carries the meaning of misguided but here we understand the meaning in light of what we know from the Sierra. If Allah sent angels to operate on the heart of Muhammad Ali Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was protected from his guidance from the ego before he even attained the age of puberty, so he was never misguided. So we tweak the way we translate the idea and understand it what we're gonna cover Len, we found you not upon complete guidance. You were upon guidance, but not complete guidance for her there and we revealed to you and completed guidance for you. That's you
and I, we only follow the way of Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah, He there's no better way for us. Allah wants us to worship Him, the way Allah wants to be worshipped, not how you feel. You want to worship Him and how you feel you want to worship Him and how he feels he wants to worship Him and how she feels she wants to worship You know,
how Allah wants to be worshipped, does Allah not have a right to be worshipped, how he wants to be worshipped? Indeed he does. subhanho wa Taala. So we learn from this,
how Buddha has no place in,
in the Sharia. In this life of ours the life of a believer, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was infallible, and this refers to him being perfect. in delivering the message to us. We also learned my dear brothers and sisters and this is an important lesson, the boundaries of our intellectuality
many times University goers they have this confusion, because University feeds confusion in your mind, you know, when you start studying all the sciences, objective morality a
priori and a priori type of knowledge and all these type of epistemology and all these different types of knowledge is allowed understand, which are not beneficial, only beneficial if you really need to refute people and understanding but it's not beneficial in terms of your of your belief, really, in terms of, of tying you to Allah and making a brief perfect with Allah. There's no benefit in this knowledge.
that knowledge is in the Quran and the Sunnah Alhamdulillah
many a student asks,
What is the role of our mind in life? There's many things that don't make sense. They start questioning, they start questioning narrations of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
is that they start questioning it doesn't make sense, right? I have three or four generations in my mind right now from impressionable people like some of the youth in the air some of you in the audience, start asking question this hadith doesn't make sense. This ayah doesn't make sense. How can it be?
We learn from this incident the role of our intellectuality in this life that
You and I, we have intelligence, holy life.
But this intelligence is governed by the Sharia.
By the Sharia
fishery out borders, the Sharia is the framework.
We use our intellectuality. within this framework. Yes, we have emotions. And then we have intelligence, and intellectuality. And then we have the Sharia. Our scholars teach us that we
use our, our emotions, in light of our intelligence, listen to some people say, think with your head, not with your heart. Right? That's what they're talking about. They're talking about that. Think with your head not meaning, use your intelligence, not your emotion. That's true. And on top of that, we say,
use the Sharia and not your intelligence.
Is that clear?
Is that clear? And this is where belief comes in.
This is where belief comes in. Belief is believe in the unseen.
It doesn't have to make sense to you. How can a man's heart be taken out and I'm a doctor, I'm a medical student, this is practically impossible. This can never happen. This is not scientifically proven.
This, this and that. And that. It doesn't matter. My dear brother, what we have is an authentic narration. And the best person to have walked the face of this earth said that it happened summit an hour upon it happened. We have listened and we have believed
is clear. But this doesn't mean that we just believe without evidence. Here I'm saying even if the message goes against what your intelligence tells you, we believe it because of evidence, I'm not giving you the Christian argument because the Christians say one plus one plus one equals one. And see, but that doesn't make sense. They say just believe it. That's been if not more, giving you that narrative.
I'm saying it doesn't make sense, believe it but believe it because there's evidence.
There's evidence as clear as the sun that this happened to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Right. This came to us in an authentic narration. There's no dispute in the chain, that this happened to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the hadith of Anderson Sahih Muslim, this is authentic, right? It happened? We have evidence. So we say here, we will not do it will occur we will not use our mind in front of the jury and deny the Sharia
Did you understand? Otherwise there will be no guidance if everybody was left?
Or if the mind was the be the be all and the ends all? Why would Allah send prophets? Why would Allah you books, we won't have minds. It's enough. Right or wrong? So Exactly. Our brothers and sisters, if yes, shavon confuses us about a certain point that look, this is not technically possible. That's obviously technically possible, but it is still possible in a non technical way. You know, something that technically shouldn't happen. So yeah, it shouldn't, but it did. So then technically you can
write, if you ever faced a situation you hear a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Or you come across an ayah in the Quran, and the teaching is something that is not common. Your intelligence has not fattened this before. Your job is to submit this is this lab which is Islam submitting to the will of Allah. Why? Because this is evidence the Quran I believe in this this is true without doubt. And this heavy is true without doubt. The evidence is correct harass, there's no role for my mind here. I will follow the evidence. Belief with evidence This is the Christian narrative, his belief, believe it doesn't make sense but believe and they'll tell you that is
believe that's how we know the believers from the disbelievers. You have to believe in this nonsensical thing, as the other person said, the nonsense thing, the nonsensical thing, right.
They say believe it we say it doesn't make sense, but it has evidence thus believe it is that clear. Excellent. So this is a very important lesson that we lead, then brothers and sisters after this incident, we have the incident of the death of the mother of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And, and this will lie he
you know, I would love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and we learning about his life, this affects us, it affects us, we learning about the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, you know, test after test after test and now you're losing your mother and listen to this. Listen to how it happened. Amina decided to take Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam to Medina and she went
With his carer remember the care from the beginning. Baraka. Her name was Baraka. So they went on this journey to Medina and she was she wanted to visit the grave of her husband. We know as we discussed Abdullah the father of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he got sick on his way back from Sham and he passed away in Medina, he went to take rest in Medina with his uncle's, his maternal uncles. So he went there and he passed away. So she wanted to visit the grave. Her son is six years old. Let me teach him about his father. So she took him with and they went to Medina, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had fond memories of his mother and that trip Subhan Allah,
he had fond memories of Allah when he was six years old, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. When they got there,
she got ill.
she passed away, she passed away.
When did she pass away, on the way back, not in Medina, and not in Makkah, a place in between, which makes this even more difficult. It makes this even more difficult because imagine this young boy is with his mother and his mother's passed away. There is no uncle's, from maternal or paternal to pull you away from the scene as a young boy, you know what we do with kids, we protect them, we blind them from the difficulty, something happens we take them away, take them to another room, not so we try and cheat them. We take them away when I say cheat them or cheat them in the battery, but you know what I'm saying to take the attention,
transfer the attention to something else. There was no one to do this for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he witnessed his mother passing away salallahu alayhi wasallam right. And that is why
when you go further in the Sierra, you see during the source of who they via the incident that who they via when they had the the Treaty of Abia, he went to visit the grave of his mother. And he cried, and the Sahaba of the Allah who and whom cried as well. He cried. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and there's a habit of the Allah who and whom cried as well. And he said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I took permission from Allah to visit the grave of my mother. And he allowed me and I took permission from Allah, or I sought permission from Allah to seek forgiveness for my mother, and he didn't permit me to Han Allah. He was a true submitter sallallahu alayhi wa sallam submitted to the
will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He submitted to the world of his creator subhanho wa Taala.
And he cried,
and the people with him cried sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what are the Allah who and who did you marry?
Those total loss on Allahu alayhi wa sallam My dear brothers and sisters becomes an orphan for a second time.
Six years after his birth, he becomes an orphan for the second time
and this is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a special affection with orphans. He had an affection for orphans, from both religion. Because it was nothing he said was from himself. Allah says one of my young people
in who are 11 you have nothing that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said was from himself, everything which he said was revelation. And he taught us amazing things about he taught us amazing things about
the orphans, and looking after the orphans, this was religion. But I was called to say it was also experience because he experienced being an orphan twice in his life. And that is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passionately said that myself and the care of an orphan will be like this engine and he put his two fingers together. So panela you want close proximity to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam you wish to have to have him sallallahu alayhi wasallam as your neighbor and what a neighbor would you have?
You wish to have him as your neighbor sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is the way
I know our cafeteria team.
Well, cafeteria team,
and our cafeteria team Cathy
passionately said it you will be with me and Jenna like this, because he knows how it was to be an orphan.
And that is why once when someone went to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and complained of a hard heart.
Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say to him this hadith is is acceptable. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Tim wipe your hand over the heads of
panela wipe your hand over the hairs or over the head of an orphan.
So soften your heart and you will do a mighty
Good to this child. Imagine this often looking at the children. These children have their parents rubbing their heads, playing with them, teaching them how to ride the bicycle, taking them to bed at night, buying them gifts, picking them up, carrying them throwing them taking them to the park. He sees all this Subhanallah indeed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Harish
alikoum will macmini naraku
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was concerned about us. He was gentle with the oma even with the orphans, especially with the orphans brothers and sisters. Like brothers and sisters. We have young boys and girls in the oma
that deserve to be adopted.
We have you know what's happening in Syria.
We have young children's parents being annihilated.
You know what's happening in Palestine, you know what's happening in places in Africa.
And they don't even have the systems that are known to us in the West systems to take care of orphans.
This is where you and I have to, if we can't at least feel the need to. If you feel I don't have I'm not physically able to make my lifestyle below who I
should try your best to convince yourself but if you really feel at least have the compassion, as I told you now, as we're sitting at least feel the desire to sponsor an orphanage or at least feel the desire to go visit an orphanage and wipe your hand over the head of orphans feel it brothers and sisters, your love of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam dictates this. Our love for Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam dictates this. This is the own of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam not what the news channels are putting out there. And what they say and they say and they say about us.
This is this is Ana, Allah He won great change to come to the oma go look after the orphans. You want great change to come to the oma go look after the widows look at the Sahaba and how they were with the widows without them knowing that they were a means of provision for them. without them knowing sustenance was coming Allah was using the Sahaba for them. today. We have no concern. No, we can't take a second wife, our first wife will kick us out of the house. That That might be true. That might be the case but who said you still can't help them? Would your wife deny you assisting them financially? No. So why haven't you? So I tell the brothers they want all of the joking around
second wife second wife. Are you serious? Are you joking? I know the conversation sounds good. Every get together you go to everyone is the time to be a man. I see you trying to be a man. They don't Second, if your wife was here, you wouldn't say this discussion. And even if she allowed you I don't think you would do it. Allah who
many of you, many of you, we say I say to them, look at the end of the day whatever your circumstance this will do is that you can assist
and your wife will support you doing it Why don't you do it?
Why don't we do it brothers and sisters. What is our priorities Mahara? Kabira pickle Karim Allah He Allah is saying, Oh mankind Mahara Kabir optical Karim. What has put you in a deception of Allah who is Karim? What is put you in a deception of your deen what is put you in a deception of the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam what has made you deny his character his message his way What happened to you? You chasing after this dunya for what it is Allah Allah The Hanukkah work for either like it is Allah who created you he fashioned to you. He made you stand up upright.
Now what do you mean whom in risk?
format will he do a U turn a moon in Allahu Allah Zack Medina was It is Allah who is the provider The only provider the potential provider, the one who provides for you in continuously provides for you subhanho wa Taala what has happened to us My dear brothers and sisters,
I introduce you to the Syrah of the best person to have walked the face of this earth Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This was the message. May Allah grant us the understanding. I mean,
we learn also brothers and sisters from this, that we are allowed to become sad. We are allowed to cry when we experience loss. We have what is called a soft LGB Leah human nature. Human nature. Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam cried as you've just had, he cried. It's allowed.
And when his son passed away, Ibrahim he also cried.
When he buried him, we'll come to that in sha Allah. Allah was testing His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and preparing him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He cried. We are allowed to tear. We are allowed to cry. We mustn't stop people from crying. It's human nature to cry. It's good to cry, but
What you shouldn't do is deny Allah subhanho wa Taala. What you shouldn't do is utter words of Cofer, what you shouldn't do is cry in a cooler way. When I say Khufu, I mean, an ungrateful way where you'd like denying align, blaming Allah subhanho wa Taala. When you start wailing and tearing your clothes and throwing things around, and when people try to consider you push them away and say, leave me and so on and so forth, you become uncontrollable. This is what you shouldn't do. But should you cry in a civilized manner? Yes, you should. You should. And perhaps it is good for you. It is human nature. It is human nature. It's good for your mind. It's good for the chemical balance
of your brain and your emotion. Right.
We learned this from this incident in this era. Then after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam his mother passed away. Allah subhanho wa Taala inspired his grandfather, Abu Talib to take care of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Abdulmutallab Allah placed in his heart such great love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that is that it he said, it wasn't even seen from him with his sons. He used to have a mat that would be placed in the shade of the Kaaba and we know his his authority with regards to the carbon its affairs, he would have a mat and no one was allowed to sit on it.
But also de la sala Lahore and he was he would come sit and when his sons or the uncles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam would come remove him because they knew you're allowed to sit with with the with the grandfather or with our Father in the spot he would he would prevent them from doing it and say indeed This boy
is bless it is praised. Leave him
and we learned from this the grandfather grandson relationship.
Has anyone seen it? Grandfather grandson relationship? How many of us have children here
and your father is alive? Mashallah Allah preserve him in his obedience? I mean, how is your father with your child and how was he with you?
Different right. It's amazing. Well, I, I have two young boys. One four and a half one is one and a half. And my father with them alive is a different man. I never saw this man growing up. Not that he wasn't good to me or why he was good, but it's even he's even more amazing. With with this is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when I when I when I read this in the Sierra and I thought about this this incident how the sons weren't allowed to sit but the grandson was allowed. I said Subhana Allah, this is from human nature. It's Allah who places the special love in the heart of the grandparents with the grandchildren, the grandparents. You know, the parents might say, You know
what? Don't feed my child ice cream. Right? Don't be device him coke. No coke. No, no, you shouldn't have coke. Juice, preservatives, no juice. Right. Parents have left meaning the son, the parent of the child, who is the son of the the the of the grandfather. He's saying these are the instructions what happens when the parent goes grandfather? Just have some ice cream here.
Right? You want some coke? some coke? Okay. See, okay. You know, your father used to drink cocoa. So he turned out okay.
Right. This is what happens, isn't it, grandfathers and grandmothers? Look at the Presidents that come Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, do certain things. Subhan Allah let me call my presence my whole life and count the presence in the first year of this child is it's more than what I ever received, once indeed I do.
Allah places a special a special love in the hearts of the grandparents. For the grandchild. We learn this from this story now after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam enjoyed the special care but only for two years. Because Two years later, when he was eight years old, Allah decreed that his grandfather passed away. And when that happened, Allah subhanho wa Taala inspired
the grandfather before passing away to live instruction that after his passing, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam will go to the real brother of Abdullah who is the father of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abdullah, and Abu Talib they had the same father and same mother. So it was decreed that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to him, and he loved Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam so much, Allah put love in his heart for him that he said he never left the house except Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he never went to sleep except next to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he would never travel on a journey except with Rasulullah sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam, despite him being so poor, and despite him having such a big family. He had such a big family and there in the history books recording being extremely poor, but even despite this, he would do so and
he would become one
of the greatest supporters of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We will learn more about him in the upcoming episodes in sha Allah because he supported Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for more than 40 years. if my memory serves me right, he passed away 10 years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became a prophet, when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was around 50 so that means he supported him for more than 40 years, Lucha Aqua inshallah tomorrow when we come back, we will learn
the next incident in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that is the incident of the monk. That was found during one of the travels of aboot Bali but as we said he always took Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam with everything correct said My dear brothers and sisters is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he is perfect. And any mistakes are from myself and upon and I see callosum haniwa Dallas forgiveness. I love you all for the sake of Allah and I appreciate you being very very punctual and
attending every day. This is a long series I know it's cold we in the central business district as well. Some of us are coming from out, Masha Allah Subhana Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make this a means of us truly grow growing true love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and reviving a Sunnah with every lesson that we take together. I mean, we are like others here during the upcoming nights. I mean, or sallallahu wasallam albaraka Allah Vienna Mohammed Ali, he was a big marine to Han Allah who will be handy so panicle lahoma behind the connection to Allah Allah hi land.
