From the lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad
Allah He was savage mine,
Robbie Shahada, Saudi Wesley Emery, Melissa Ania cola bud,
Oprah's Gita, Allah subhana wa Taala and please pay upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I testify that there's no god except Allah testify that Muhammad is the Prophet and the Messenger of Allah.
Brothers and sisters, I think Allah subhanho wa Taala the one that's always worthy to be thanked, and I praise Him the one that's always worthy to be praised. I thank Allah azzawajal for making us from amongst those who get together for his sake, to learn more about his religion understand more of the Quran and the Sunnah, the Quran, which is the best book and the greatest book, on the face of this earth, and the Sunnah of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which teaches us our way of life and how to connect ourselves to Allah subhanho wa Taala
and Sharla tonight, I want to cover two topics, one topic, which is part of the actual program and series that we've been covering for the past Thursday's. We'll be talking through the different holidays the amendment now had compiled in his book, real solid him, but also later on inshallah, at the end of the lesson also elaborate more on the day of Ashura, which is most likely tomorrow after tomorrow, and inshallah I'll speak more about them. Now, so chapter number 32, which is the chapter here Babel follow the offerton muslimeen. While fukada will homily.
superiority of poor, weak and Unreal unowned Muslims. So here in this chapter, mmm in no we thought of this chapter after he came out with a hadith that may as a Muslim, I don't have any superiority out of it in one. I'm not superior of anyone regardless what my color of my skin is. What's my race? What's my ethnicity? What's my background? I'm an Arab or non Arab. There is no superiority of anyone ever anyone except as Allah subhanaw taala says in the game except in taqwa as Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, academia, you
watch our nakusha obon wakaba la tala. For Chroma COMM And the law of car comm all people were created for male and female and we have made you in different tribes. So you could recognize one another. There is nothing wrong with you being part of this tribe or having this family name, or being part of this village. But Allah subhanaw taala makes it very clear, this is only for you to recognize one another. I am Mohammed from Yemen. I am from Australia. I am Muhammad from Europe, we recognize each other from the tribes that we belong to.
Then Allah azzawajal sets his records very clearly and straight. Allah subhanaw taala makes it very clearly says in the economic of ambalaj escargoon. The most honorable one amongst you to Allah is the one that fits Allah subhanaw taala most, so if you want to be superior than anyone else, then be superior with your taqwa. Be superior with your Eman, be superior with your faith or renew righteousness. You want to be superior than everyone knows your righteousness will make you superior than everyone else, while you're in this city, your background, your nationality, the color of his skin, the name of your tribe and the tribe that you belong to, is not going to give you enough
superiority in this world and the hereafter and if you get some of it in this world will surely and 100% you're not going to get any of it in the hereafter.
So amendment now we rahama Hello, Donna. He names and titles this title or chapter as a superiority of poor, weak and Unreal Muslims.
And it's important for us to know there's no such thing called tribalism in Islam. And one of the things that Esther managed to crush is tribalism, which was so prevalent a widespread amongst the Arabs during the time of the Prophet Mohammed Salim tribalism
was reaching at its peak, it had reached its peak. And it was at that moment in which it was a pinnacle moment for tribalism for the Arabs to belong to this tribe and I belong to this tribe and they used to even fight one another just because they belong to this tribe. They even alliances origin mentioned Kareem and hakama Takahata. Matata, when the problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam migrated from Mecca to Medina in Medina, the Muslims in Medina he belonged to different tribes. In particular does he came from Mecca they were known as the Mahajan in the migrants, and those who use and those who are the original residents of Medina known as the unsolved the
supporters, or the helpers, that start the dispute with one another and they started the buy and boast ever who belongs to which tribe I am from this tribe and my forefathers are those and my father was this and I am from this family and I am from this tribe. So Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, Allah Karim al haq Amata. Cathal, you became so occupied with your numbers. And you became so occupied with you boasting over the tribe that you belong to multiple macabre, Allah says not only the start to boast over which tribe they belong to,
but even reached to the extent that they start to get to the graveyards, and they start to point at the graveyard of their fathers and their forefathers and say this is my grandfather. My grandfather is the one from this tribe. And this is my uncle, my uncle is the one that's not about this on his dinner about his bravery of that and he's courageous of this then started dispute with one another over the orbost over so Allah subhanaw taala is is in the karate Kareem and Hakuna Matata council your numbers and your belonging to this tribe has occupied Tom and macabre until you reach to the level to get to the to the graveyard and stop boasting Emma who is in that grave? gala, Safa
talamona Allah Allah wants to direct them towards the right direction. So McCullough Safa Talamo indeed he Shona indeed you shall know. Indeed you shall know and indeed you shall know. Carlos Santana, Temecula Sofitel, makalah la talamona.
So monitor Allah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala brings it back at the end of the day, all these boasting, they are boasting of whether this person to be your father or grandfather, whoever it is, will help you nothing except for you to save yourself from the whole fire in the hereafter.
So there is not the priority of anyone ever anyone except in tacos. Allah makes that very clear. You're not better than me because you're white, and I'm not inferior to you because I'm black. And I'm not better than you because I'm an Arab and you are inferior to me because you are not Arab. There is no superiority of anyone ever anyone except in taqwa as the problem Hamas ourselves is another Hadith lafargue kobane Arabic, Arabic And voila Jamil Illa. taqwa there is no difference between an Arab and a non Arab except taqwa, your piety, your righteousness is what makes you better than anyone else. Your work doesn't give you anything, or anything more than anyone else. It doesn't
give you any security of anyone or anyone. Your color of skin doesn't give you any superiority of anyone. Your nationality doesn't give you superiority of anyone, your ethnicity does not give you superiority of anyone where you come from and what tribe you belong to. It does not give you any superiority of anyone.
But not only that, here enemy solomani was telling me he says in this heartbeat has been aerated and Harry's evening god bless america Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam
gender, Colaba, even matoba even lo Oksana, Allahu Allah, Allah. Elinor Kula to Linda was a mistake with the Prophet Mohammed Salah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, should I tell you about the people of the paradise? You want to know who are the people of the paradise? So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, He is the humble one, that you look at his humbleness. You think he is so weak, but if he raises hands to allow us a lot of love or respect, respond to him.
He is the humble one. Then he looked at this man is nothing. He's poor. He's not wealthy. He doesn't come from this noble tribe or this big tribe. He doesn't come from this ethnicity. It doesn't come from this nationality in some sense, but this man, not only he's from the people of the gender, but by Allah. If he raises his hands to Allah, us, Allah, Allah will respond to
do not belittle anyone or undermine anyone. Maybe this person that you see in the corner they looked at I look at this person is no one in his neighborhood. Look at the car he drives and look at the clothes that he was. Look at the job that he has. Maybe this person he is a lot more better to last 100 people lucky
Another problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says,
and they should all know about the people of the Hellfire, the people of the Hellfire that Allah subhanaw taala will cast in the Hellfire
ninja was a mistake, but every ruthless rough, and someone with pride, having pride. He thinks he's better than everyone. We call them The Untouchables.
He thinks because he's got some money, some cash in his pocket, or some numbers in his savings. He thinks because he works in a particular job, or because he is someone with Power Authority, or because he belongs to a particular tribe or nation or community or country. He thinks he's better than everyone else.
The analysis too high.
The up themselves
up themselves. They think they think they're above everyone else.
Just because of the work they have, of the money they have because of the query they have, because of the background they belong to. They think the above everyone, well, Allah azza wa jal says you are from the first people that will experience the whole for you No one.
You are no one and you are nobody. If you want to be somebody, then have piety and righteousness, it's your taco that will make you someone,
not your money. Not your influence, not your prestige, or your cars, not your houses, not your career, not the job that you have. Not the certificate that you work too hard for not that I'm saying this is wrong. There is nothing wrong with you being wealthy, on the contrary, so I want you to be one thing, I want you to be intellectual, I want you to be smart. I want you to be a successful businessman. But you need to know at the end of the day, if you have that, that does not make it any better than anyone else. You don't have pride me people.
You don't have pride other people. And unfortunately for that that's widespread sometimes, where people are clustered.
They are being put into different castes and give different categories or different classes. If he's rich, he's with the rich ones. And if he's poor, he's with the poor ones. And there is that fine line between the poor and the rich. They're not allowed to cross it.
No, in there be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the most honorable man, but sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will go past months. And it doesn't even have enough food for him to eat him and his family, not food to eat, but his wife will say, We don't even have food to cook. And that's a prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So the aim of today's or tonight's lesson is for us to understand something that we grew up we don't understand it, but we need to act upon it. That is not superiority of anyone ever anyone does not superiority of black of a white white of a black rich, ever poor, poor, or rich. Someone who comes from this tribe somewhere he comes from that tribe, someone who's an Arab, someone who is a non Arab, at the end of the day in Chroma come in the light at koco. Now the most honorable one
is the one that feels a loss of
Your Honor, is through the fear of a loss of your respect is through the fear of Allah subhanaw taala your prestige is through the fear of Allah azza wa jal. So if you want to have that superior ID, then you have that superiority through your fee and piety as a last paradises. And obviously, once you have that piety, you will never lose anyone.
As the Prophet Mohammed sasm says in this hadith that we're just related to you right now. That might be someone that you look Danna, maybe someone they don't even want to rub shoulders with. Maybe someone they don't even associate yourself with. This person is a lot more closer to Allah than anyone else. If you ask
him. How many times have you asked Allah? You are so distant away from Allah subhanaw taala does not even accept you. But this person he asked a lot on our last panel except for me. Why? Because he is someone who has authority.
In this next Hadith one beside him Audrey, are they allowed
to sell them call? agenda to Juana Tijuana? Akala t narrow field. una llamada Kabir en la Carla tiljander to fear bhava on nursey Mombasa Kenya home Darfur en su hamasaki Nova de la habana home by nama in the kill Jana Rama te amo Becky, Amanda Manisha we're in the kinara or the became an Asha Wali collect colliculi Kumar, Wali Calais Kuma la cuchara. In this Hadith, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says there was a dispute between the agenda and dinar, Allah subhanho wa Taala created the agenda and not on the agenda and another paradox and the whole point before he created Adam. And that's why according to the majority
Have the scholars the editor enter the journal so how could enter the journal after it was created not the agenda was created before Adam.
In this hadith the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he says that the agenda the paradise and the nature of the Hellfire disputed with one another.
The Hellfire said le interest enters me and Lee does with pride and does with arrogance into me. Yes Does with pride and arrogance will enter the hole for those who have pride and arrogance. their destiny is going to be the hellfire. So the Hellfire said only does with pride and arrogance enter me. And then the paradise said and it does you're a poor and weak and to me, so that both the spirit and then return back to Allah azza wa jal. So Allah subhana wa Taala determined between them, Allah azza wa jal made the determination and gentlemen between them and then Allah subhanho wa Taala he says to the paradise in the kill Jana, you are my paradise rahmati My Mercy, our hammer became an
usher. I will have mercy upon whoever I want. And then Allah subhanaw taala said to the Hellfire, we're in knocking down our Darby and you're the Hellfire, you're my punishment. We became an Asha Asha and I will punish whoever I want in you. So the paradox and the Hellfire dispute with one another. The paradox said, only the poor and the weak enter me, the Hellfire said only the arrogant and those with pride will enter me. So Allah said that in Paradise, you are my Rama, I will have mercy upon whoever I want. And he said to the Hellfire, you are my punishment, I will punish whoever I want. So here are those who will enter the paradise and the vast majority of people enter the
paradise and the poor and the week. When we say weak, not physically weak, weak or those people with influence with not power and renowned people, that's the weakness that we are talking about. We're not talking about physically weak. So if you are strong and you have faith and Mashallah you pump iron every single day, you're going to get through the whole fire none. And even when we say pool, when we say pool, the Sharia is not talking about you not being reached, don't mix the two together because a lot of people misunderstood misunderstand this hadith.
A lot of people misunderstood this hadith and they misunderstand it in a way. Because it is the majority of the poor that will enter the paradise or the paradise has the majority of the poor people that does not necessarily they have to be poor for you to enter the paradise and if you are water, there is a smaller chance for you entering the paradise No. But because of wealth, a lot of times people because of the become arrogant. They become people with pride, pride. Pride comes because of a lot of people are wealthy.
And wealth does bring arrogance and pride into lower people's hands. Not everyone there are a lot of people walk into a lot of people have so much wealth, so much influence so much prestige, but that have pride that's still humble.
And you could see that within this habit of a long time. And you see that within the predecessors within our predecessors.
So just because the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that the vast majority of the people of the paradox of the poor and the needy and the poor and the weak, that does not necessarily mean that you need to be lift poor for you to enter the paradise now, you could reach you could live rich and you could enter the highest level of the paradise. You could live rich, and it could be with the prophets and messengers, as a prophet Mohammed Salim says a third of the
the honest merchant, the honest businessman, will be amongst and will be in the company of the prophets, messengers, the martyrs and the truthful and the honest ones in a after. So let's not mix the two together what's hard is they acquire well through the Hara. Not only that, even if you acquire through the HANA, but you have pride and arrogance, because you are wealthy, because I've got extra bucks in my pocket because I've got extra Wolf and I've got a nicer car, then you've got a nicer house, then you start having pride every that's what's wrong. If you want to have wolf have it and if you want to have big houses have them and if you want to have nice cars, have them but then
have pride just because you have those at the end of the day. Allah is the one that gave me all this.
And having pride of the creation of Allah is having pride as a creator that created them.
Always remember though, that have pride over the creation of Allah because yeah, having pride over the creator that created them because he created this creation, Allah subhanaw taala Yes, I have pride, pride in two things in my religion and I have pride against heroin. So if someone is doing something or someone this believes in Allah, I will have pride over his action not over him as a person.
I will have pride eBay's action
But not over him as a person, when I would have
walked with pride during the battle on a battlefield in Nevis, as I've said, this type of walking, it is so disliked but Allah except during moments like this moment, why because he's walking of pride was for the sake of Allah. It was during the time of battle on the battlefield. So, Allah Subhana Allah does not forbid you from having growth. But a lot of the times Worf does generate pride. What does generate arrogance? And you see a lot of people are both in the stopping point and not Oban. You have a lot of people Mashallah wolfy but they're very humble too. But that those, the moment Allah subhanaw taala opens up his gates and his door, a provision and water saving proud of
everyone. They think that above Iran.
And that concept and notion of success starts to get to their head because I'm successful. That means I'm better than everyone else. Because I managed to succeed and make more work than everyone else. That means I'm better than everyone else. That's how it comes. Because I'm successful, that means I'm better than everyone else. So this is what Allah subhanaw taala wants you to be very cautious of.
In this next had a throne Abo da da da da da da da da da su de la Sol Sana Khan in Allah theological semi nahi Mia welcome Allah, as you know, in the ledger, Nevada, in the hereafter Allah subhanaw taala will bring forth someone who is so fat. So chubby, Allah Subhana, WA, tada weigh him on the scale, he would not even equal, his wife would not even equal to the weight of a mosquito. He's nothing to along. He's not bad at all, even though he thought that he is someone. And obviously, these days, if someone is obese and fat people look down at him, or went to some countries, if you're fat, you're respected. Why? It means you've got extra money for you to feed yourself. That's
how people look at it. And maybe it's not the best of thing. It's something that in other countries, if you are fat, you're respected. Why? Because that alludes to that this person has cashed this person has money to feed himself. That's why he's fat, especially in poor areas, especially in poor villages or lived in some of those villages. If someone is fat when he walks in and just looks at him and follows you. So Pamela, why? Because the indicator, this person has money and his pet because he's got extra money to feed himself. Maybe during the time of the process. Or
maybe yes, I'm not surprised.
David think that during the time of the prophet SAW Selim II and I'm not talking about the Sahaba, but in general, the Arabs if someone is amongst them, that means this person has enough wealth to feed himself and not only just feed himself feed himself more than what he needs, because back then people will serve poor though and it will they need to eat. So being fat is not like something common. So if you have worth you've got enough money to feed yourself and the base salary says someone who is so fat and chubby Allah xojo breman after Allahu
Allah will put him on the scale and this person will not even weigh the way of a mosquito. But on the other hand, on the other hand, when the Sahaba de lo tala and whom will make a mockery of the shins of Abdullah in the process have said to them, what are you loving because Abdullah
he was short and skinny.
And it was the easy one easiest one amongst them to climb the tree, the palm tree, so once he climbed the palm tree to collect the palms and the date and while he was on the palm tree, the rest of this album we're not gonna have him though loving about him. They were loving every they were loving everyone in every Zaza asked him what are you loving ever so they said we're loving ever has been the shins of abalone massage.
They were laughing over the shins of our beloved Amazon so they said O Messenger of Allah. We are just loving ever has been the shins of Abdullah Masada send me some some said don't laugh at him. By Allah to Allah a lot more heavier than the mountain avadh
Subhana Allah is someone that even the Sahaba were laughing over. They were loving every Why? Because he's skinny. He's He's his shins was so thin for a man lockets too thin. There were so thin that were loving ever, but lives origin as the Prophet Muhammad SAW Some said a lot a lot more heavier than the mountain quad.
So you've got a weak person here. Yes, is considered to be weak, short and skinny. He seems a surfing maybe he's poor Abdullah was poor, but Allah was he. He is more heavier than the mountain. But on the other hand, you have someone who suffers so chubby, so wealthy, so big, so energetic, but he means no one to Allah subhanaw taala does not even wait the word of a mosquito. So Nabi sallallahu Sallam in this Hadith, he says
Low bring someone who suffer so chubby, a lower weight on the scale, he would live a weight the weight of a mosquito, he's nobody.
His worth would not even help him. His size would not even help him. His procedure may even help him his power and influence will not even help him. What would help you? What would help you is your email. What would help you is your taco employer to your righteousness?
That's why Allah subhanaw taala says in Chroma command de la he at koco in this next one even me Sam says Robert Akbar, not formal above luck sama Allah who may be someone who has a disheveled hair, His hair is all over the place doesn't even have a comb to comb his hair.
He seipel so weak mudroom, mudroom and Bill above, he's a reject. That's the best way to say above is a reject, which means that those of us have shut his face knows exceptive in society he's a reject is an outcast. Why not because he's bad because he's poor.
Because he's not wealthy, because he doesn't come from a particular tribe, because he's not someone with influence and parallel inhibition. Last time, he says, maybe someone his hair, His hair is shuffled, you look down at him. He's a reject an outcast in your eyes, in your way of thinking. Now.
If he raised his hands to Allah says Allah give me a low give him straightaway.
He is more superior than others will feel once he is more superior than all the strong ones. He's more superior than all those influential ones. No.
So it's not about you. And it's not about your social status. And it's not about the color of your skin. And it's not about your background. And it's not about your career or your job. It's not about this is not about that it's about your top one. You have Taqwa you have security. Either have Taqwa you don't have anything, even if you think you've got everything.
Allah Allah Allah
the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also says in this hadith
one Osama da da da da da da one in the V salario. Salah God come to Alibaba Jennifer either armato manda Allah and Misaki was Hubble jet the bamboo sooner or later and as habanero Ameobi. Welcome to another bourbon not for either, Amanda, Hannah. And Lisa, in this hadith and Avi Salah salami says after his journey, during the night journey during the ascension, where he was ascended to meet with the laws of Hamilton and during that journey in Ibiza Salaam, he Allah is salatu salam went to the paradox I went to the hole finally says, during my journey, I saw that the vast majority, and the general population of the people of the paradise of the poor and the needy,
the poor and the needy. And then he says, I saw that the vast majority and the general population of the people of the Hellfire women. That's nothing to do with poor and rich. And that's nothing to do with men and women. So let's mix let's not mix those two together. In the basis of says the vast majority of the people of the paradise are the poor and the needy. Why, because the poor and the theory, even though even though they were poor, and needy, but because the one given that privilege of having both, the opportunity of them falling into the hierarchy was a lot less than the one that has the privilege of both. Because when you have both you have privileges, good privileges, but also
opens what evil privileges. That privilege when you have wealth in your pocket, when you have money, it opens the door for you, or opens the door for you to gank me because you've got money. And not only that even opens the door for you to be a an oppressive and unjust person to mistreat people.
But that's not necessarily what everyone there's a lot of people a wolf and they feel as
though that gives them more than that poor person that enters the paradise.
The wolf the person that feeds Allah or causes war through the hell and gives it through the heroine and does not have pride and arrogance ever the creation of Allah azza wa jal, his position in the parade was by far a lot higher than the poor and the needy.
But if he does not use his water, the pleasure of Allah, his position is in the Hellfire at the same time, at the same time, poverty can lead you to haram because when you are poor and desperate, when you are poor and desperate, you start resorting to the hubbub. I leave nobody thought about does he say he said Locanda, *a Rajan or Nakata, Lacan and fackrell Raja Linda cataldo effecter poverty was a man of killed him. Why? Because poverty does leave a lot of people to hold on to because you are poor, you start committing theft, because you're a poor eager to usury because you are engaged in a lot of heroin because of poor people that start engaging in prostitution. That doesn't justify
Also poverty leads to heroin.
And in obese as it says, The vast majority of the people that are so in the hole for a woman, that's nothing to do with men or women, that's because of two things. In general, the population of women is by far, always bigger than the population of then obese Allah salami says, will come a time will come a time that the population of men to the woman 50 women to one man 50 woman to woman, so that's got nothing to do with our women are created out of evilness men are good, or men are bad. No, no, no. That's because of two angles. One angle is in general, in this world, the population of women is always more than the population of men. Secondly, women in some areas, especially when they're
trying to involve themselves in the harem, gossiping, backbiting, slandering. And now Visa Services, what results people into the Hellfire is predominantly the tongue
predominant. I'm not saying men don't gossip. These days, probably men gossip modern women. Okay, but I'm not saying but because of the nature, especially not working during the day, and mixing and gown this and that, that can result in but again, that's got nothing to do with men, women, or men. These are women that and that's not always the case. not always the case that all women that work during the day and that it goes in different ways, by innovation law services in general, the majority of people in the paradise of the poor and the needy, and the majority of the people of the Hellfire are the women.
Women. No. So in here in Ibiza, lolani was telling him, he tells us he wants to embed this thing in our minds instill the thought and the importance of understanding that it's not about your wealth. It's not about your status. It's not about your influence. It's not about your power. It's not about your prestige. That gives you superiority over anyone. It's about your taqwa and your Eman it's about your taekwon human, have Taqwa have a man and also how to make it better than everyone else. In the way Salalah alayhi wa sallam your prophet messenger he was given the offer of becoming the most walkies man to ever stand on the face of this earth. But in the results I've said no rather
fast or rather stop one day and have patience for the sake of Allah and eat one day and thank Allah subhanaw taala for the fee they have given me and that's a prophet Muhammad SAW Salah in Ibiza was offered something that that no man standing on the face of this earth has ever or ever been offered. But in a recent subset or rather a one day and thank Allah for the giving me Stop one day and do it for the sake of Allah Allah willing to do whatever you want. That's the processing of the Sahaba came to messenger of Allah was angry. It was a time of feminine starvation or messenger of Allah hungry. Look what we've done to ourselves. We'll put a brick around our stomach so we could keep
that balance in evisa uncovered his stomach and he had two bricks. If you haven't eaten for one day, I haven't eaten for two days. If it's two days, I haven't eaten for four days. And that's the process I love. But what is superiorities Allah sallam, he was a superior man, some of
the most noble men sallallahu wasallam that the poor and the rich look up to him.
And he is the first man to enter the paradise. What more security Are you looking for that this?
Sir, my brothers and my sisters in the economic Mandela had calculated the less honorable ones Allah is the one that says Allah, Allah must
you feed him and act upon
