00:03:32--> 00:03:34

The Prophet Muhammad Allah is Salatu was Salam

00:03:35--> 00:03:46

was disruptively the best of people. And when one of the wives of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked about the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam. She described the Prophet de salatu wa Salaam as a walk in

the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, I work in Quran and his men as well. The Karate Kid in the matters of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with a Khurana Kareem. You look into the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam the character of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam the behavior of the Prophet Mohammed Salim the way the problem hamazon conducted himself exactly what Allah subhanaw taala mentions in the Quran carry.

00:04:16--> 00:04:18

And Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran Karim. Why sirona Allah unfussy him while our canopy him kasasa. Allah subhanaw taala describes the believers, Allah is describing the believers. And obviously when Allah subhanaw taala is describing the believers with a description or a character, it's obviously a description a character that lots of animals Allah wants to see in you as a believer.

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

Characters Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to see in you as a believer, a character that Allah subhana wa Taala wants you to practice in your life. And in that verse in which Allah subhanaw taala says well you know Allah emphysema, la cara beam kasasa that you find the believers amongst each other, are willing to give up what they need most for one another.

00:05:22--> 00:05:47

Believers are willing to give up what they need most for one another. As I believe I should be given up what I need most for myself for you because you're my brother in Islam, you're my sister in Islam. And Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the believers in the Quran as those who are willing to give up what they need most for one another. While you through Nana, MSM wa cannot be him kasasa

what they see as a necessity in their lives. They are in dire need of it, but they are willing to sacrifice it for one another. Not willing to give it up for one another.

00:06:07--> 00:06:24

other Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam football locker the RJ Bala Hoon means on a Kuma widow if you kumala Allah Subhana Allah amazing story.

00:07:49--> 00:08:06

During the time of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because of the generosity of the Prophet a Salatu was Salam and the reputation of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salam had people will flock to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and asked the provider is Salatu was salam, for many things, to the extent that there is

00:08:07--> 00:08:31

or the reputation of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam exceeded to the extent that people were going around and saying that Mohammed gives any does not even feed poverty, that's the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, he never saw some will give and give and give. And even the problem homosassa lamb will continue to give even what he needs a lot earlier. So let me give it to others, implementing what lots of panel data had made mention of Khurana Karim. That was the reputation of the Prophet Mohammed Salah in the Mohammed.

00:08:33--> 00:08:44

Mohammed gives and continues to give a man that does not see poverty, as if the problem Muhammad Salallahu alaihe salam has got endless wealth, they can continue to give and maybe saliva samples and feed poverty.

00:08:45--> 00:09:14

So people will continue to flock to the Prophet Mohammed Salah said especially believers, they'll come to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and asked the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for help as the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salah for money as the Prophet Mohammed Salah for food as the Prophet Mohammed Salah, Salah for clothing. So one of the companions came to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he said O Messenger of Allah, I am so hungry, and I am so poor that I don't even have money for me to buy food.

00:09:15--> 00:09:53

So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to initiate something in his life, Allah is Salatu was Salam in practice, while lots of Han hotelera described the believers to be those who are willing to give up what they need most for others. So the first thing that the Prophet Muhammad SAW Salaam do is the he Allah is salatu wa sallam asked his wives, do I have further harm? So that's the first thing Santa Ana de la sala. He receives this guest, who is sir hungry and doesn't have food. And he said to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in New Madrid I'm about to collapse. I'm so hungry and I'm about to collapse. It's probably a lot of money, how many days or

00:09:53--> 00:09:56

hours it hasn't eaten, obviously days as needed.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

So the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam asked his wife

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

Do I have anything I have for us today?

00:10:03--> 00:10:07

And can you imagine that one day you walk into your house and you open the fridge and there's nothing except

00:10:08--> 00:10:15

that's not existence? Of course. There is no way you could convince me in your entire house in all the pantries and all the cupboards that you bought

00:10:17--> 00:10:54

and all the drawers and the fridge he and they he told me about nothing except Laura Masha Masha Allah chocolate tea and biscuits there and food here and then can see him there. There's no way I'm talking about myself here. There's no all the convinced that one don't ever walk into my house and open the pantry. There's nothing that will open the fridge and there's only water. Well, let me say something to my brother, my sister, your beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. His life was they had nothing support at home. That's the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the most respected man, the most honorable man, the greatest man who ever tried this earth, Allah

00:10:54--> 00:11:07

salatu wa sallam, his household will only have water. So now someone lives in and receives this guest and this gets saved to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam or messenger of Allah save me. I'm about to collapse and die from hunger.

00:11:08--> 00:11:14

So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his wife's, one after the other, not anyone

00:11:15--> 00:11:25

around asking to have anything at home, and he will respond back to the Prophet Mohammed Salah cinema messenger of Allah, Allah, the one that has sent you the truth. The only thing that we've got at home is water.

00:11:26--> 00:11:29

There is no water. We've got nothing else except Torah.

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

Mohammed Salah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:11:34--> 00:11:42

Allah salatu salam in all his household. The only thing that he has Allah is salatu wa sallam is water.

00:11:43--> 00:11:56

Nothing else. Sunnah Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he resorts to the companions. And he says to them, is there anyone here amongst you that's willing to take care of my guests?

00:11:58--> 00:12:06

Anyone amongst you that's willing to host my guest. And that's a habit of the law. In general, most of them are poor.

00:12:07--> 00:12:14

So those that were present during that time, a moment around the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam masamoto.

00:12:15--> 00:12:35

So imagine, in every cell olalia cell has got a guest and his Mohammed, not your ordinary share or little teacher. The lid off man comes on the line is alone. The little monkey man carnality salatu wa sallam, this Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The little of all people on a Salatu was Salam.

00:12:37--> 00:12:46

Say imagine Nabi sallallahu. wasallam stands before the Sahaba of the low tide Adam and tells him Is there anyone here willing to host my guest? He's about to get out from hunger.

00:12:47--> 00:12:48

So no one replies

00:12:50--> 00:13:08

Okay, what an embarrassment for the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So at the end, one of the companions, who was sitting amongst the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, on the gathering of the valley, Salatu was Salam ala felt that sense of embarrassment, embarrassing, the prophet Mohammed Salah la mancanza were mentioned before.

00:13:10--> 00:13:15

So he put his hands up. And he said, O Messenger of Allah, I'll host him, I'll take care of him.

00:13:18--> 00:13:22

He put his hand up and he said, I'll take care of him a messenger of Allah send them with me.

00:13:24--> 00:13:43

Little does everyone else knows that this companion himself doesn't even have much faith for himself and his family. But he didn't want to embarrass the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, which also reflects upon the love of the Sahaba of the low tide towards the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam who is willing to host my guest.

00:13:44--> 00:13:52

So this companion put his hand up, after he saw the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has been let down or even embarrassed because none of the companions or the

00:13:53--> 00:14:00

prisoner at that time can host the guest of the Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam said O Messenger of Allah, I'll take him on board or host your guests.

00:14:02--> 00:14:02

So he takes him

00:14:04--> 00:14:08

and he takes him to his house. Upon entering his house, he speaks to his wife.

00:14:10--> 00:14:15

This companion speaks to his wife and it tells us what do we have a hunt for food?

00:14:16--> 00:14:19

What kind of food do we have? Right now?

00:14:20--> 00:14:30

You got home. Okay, what do we have to eat? You've got 1234 eggs you've got two and a belief you've got chicken you've got this and that and you end up fighting with your wife because you don't even know how to make a choice.

00:14:32--> 00:14:33

happens

00:14:35--> 00:14:42

you don't even know what to say sometimes. why sometimes I get to the fridge and the fridge or close it because I get confused. Sadly but

00:14:43--> 00:14:45

less calories today.

00:14:46--> 00:14:53

Confusion ever the amount of food that we have and I'm not saying that's bad Don't get me wrong. Dang Chuck all the food that you got him tonight

00:14:55--> 00:14:55

was the food

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

that I have anything. I want to implement the system

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

The problem homosassa this other sunan of the LA Salatu was salam, they need to get implemented the law before this soon. And this is not a tsunami information anyway, that's just a reality.

00:15:11--> 00:15:16

So this companion gets to his house, bringing with him a new guest and use this guest.

00:15:18--> 00:15:21

This guest is the guest of the program, Mohammed, Salah before he is the guest of anyone.

00:15:23--> 00:15:31

So upon entering his house, he tells his wife, what do you have for the guests of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam what we do have

00:15:32--> 00:15:40

such a report and she says, we only have a small amount of food to feed the children before they get a bit before they get to sleep.

00:15:42--> 00:15:50

And what lacuna please, then imagine where you get a harmless small amount of food like in a capitola meal you

00:15:51--> 00:15:58

can been a year and all that stuff that's in front of you a small amount of Finnish children may be bred a bit of broth,

00:15:59--> 00:16:01

may Allahu Allah if they have made

00:16:03--> 00:16:08

so how much radio But haven't you said, I only have small amount of food for me to feed the children before they get asleep.

00:16:11--> 00:16:20

So he thought about He said, No, no, I am not gonna let them the problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam balerion, the guest of the Prophet Mohammed Allah salatu wa sallam.

00:16:21--> 00:16:30

Some of the reciting his wife, he said, Look, go and make use of the cooking in front of the kids and let the kids get asleep.

00:16:32--> 00:16:45

Gotta make use of to the kids, I'm just cooking food for you. I'm cooking, I'm cooking food for you. I'm cooking food for you. And in about the time that she continues to say to them, I'm cooking food for you, I'm cooking food for you. I'm cooking food for you not fall asleep.

00:16:46--> 00:16:57

And then bring all the other food that you've got, because I don't have much food. The food that she's got is not even enough for two people, let alone for the entire family.

00:16:58--> 00:17:15

So he told her God and convinced our children that we're cooking food for them. And by the time you cook food for them, don't fall asleep, and then get all the food and put in front of a guest. But before you do that, turn off the LED,

00:17:16--> 00:17:22

turn off the lamp. And then when our guest sits on the table on the ground,

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

and he starts to a young boy, this the husband brings his wife here.

00:17:28--> 00:17:39

You and I will make ourselves sitting in front of a guest because we don't have enough food for our guests on us. So we need to sacrifice and give up what we love most and give it to our guests.

00:17:41--> 00:17:52

So we'll sit down, make sure that the kids get to sleep just continuing to saving them and make them feel that they are going to eat while you're making them feel that food has been cooked Bubba should fall asleep and put them to bed

00:17:53--> 00:18:02

and then get all the food and put it in front of the guest of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam and 10 of the labs are against us and see us if we're gonna make ourselves eating.

00:18:05--> 00:18:10

Make those noises that we are eating and then not hearing anything other friends is probably guessed

00:18:11--> 00:18:24

why he's so concerned and observant that he does not want to let down that guest of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam so that is exactly what I've agreed on emerging so that you have the ceremony I Lamacq.

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

You and your guests

00:18:30--> 00:18:31

you and your guests

00:18:34--> 00:18:39

emergence of Hamlet Moloch it's not only this companion but even his wife.

00:18:40--> 00:18:51

This male companion is so concerned over the guest of the Prophet Muhammad SAW Simon his wife is also concerned that with the guest of the Prophet Muhammad says I'm just to please Allah, and to please us when the lesson alojado salaam.

00:18:52--> 00:18:54

So they brought the end children from eating.

00:18:55--> 00:19:03

And they fell asleep without eating without even having dinner and maybe could be the enemy. That day could be the only moment that day.

00:19:04--> 00:19:34

And the husband and the wife sat on the table on the ground 10 of the lamp. So the guests of Rasulullah sallallahu ala Sara doesn't say if the earring or not, and have offered all the food to the guest, the guest I owe the food. The other two companions the mount of fame of the husband and wife the house met themselves to be eating even though the problem is starving to him and probably enough for 24 hours. And the guest of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, I owe the food and he left.

00:19:35--> 00:19:36

What happens the following day.

00:19:37--> 00:19:57

The following day, the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam encounters that companion that hosted the guest of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and then the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says to him, Allah laughed. Another narration. Allah was amazed from what you've done yesterday to the guest of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

who emphasized

00:20:00--> 00:20:20

The problem Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam of what the husband was done to the guest of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, Allah subhana wa tada because the guest himself did not even know what his house had done. He thought that it was him. He didn't know his children he didn't know his wife or his own husband. He thought Mashallah he and everyone else I because

00:20:23--> 00:20:30

Allah subhanaw taala informed the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam of the practice and the action of this companion

00:20:31--> 00:20:43

of taking care of the guest of the provider is Salatu was set up the following day, the propaganda is Salatu was Salam tozi allied soldier was amazed to your action to the guest of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.

00:20:45--> 00:20:46

And that's a credit

00:20:47--> 00:21:01

that's to his credit, never saw so it was complimenting this companion, wanting to give up, wanting to give up his dinner, and the dinner of his children just to host the guest of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

That's why there was a habit of the low dollar.

00:21:08--> 00:21:24

That's why Allah subhana wa tada says the betterment of Khurana Karim, Allah Juan Juan Juan, the others that lots of Herodotus please from them, and they are pleased from Allah subhanaw taala look at this action. But can you just imagine

00:21:26--> 00:21:37

and this also indicates and reflect upon hosting a guest because the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam also says, Man can a human woman alpha lucrin bifa Whoa.

00:21:39--> 00:21:44

Whoever believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala Day of Judgment, then be generous to your guests.

00:21:46--> 00:22:03

Be generous to your guests. Part of your Amen. is when you have a guest eyeball, you give him whatever you can give him he given the best hospitality. It's not like you can say okay, two packets of chocolate. This one is no frills. No Frills anymore, huh? This is you know, three bucks and this 10 bucks and I give him two bucks one.

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

I'll leave the 10 bucks for someone else.

00:22:07--> 00:22:09

This too expensive. A living for me and my family.

00:22:11--> 00:22:18

Oh, you know what, there's no need for you to ever exaggerate. Now when it comes. When it comes to your guests, the scholars say

00:22:19--> 00:22:22

spending can be ever exaggerated when it comes to your guest.

00:22:24--> 00:22:30

Spending can be ever exaggerated. When it comes to you guessed

00:22:32--> 00:23:04

it's a recommended thing that you ever exaggerate when it comes to your gifts. Because that's part of a madman Kenny Amina Bella Yamanaka lucam dipo whoever believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala that they have gentlemen, the beach generous, the guest be generous the guests, you've got a guest over, be generous to him. And he's a guest, Muslim and non Muslim, be generous to him, be good to him be nice be coins. That's Islam, and look at the action of this habit on the low end properties and children and his wife and himself

00:23:05--> 00:23:47

to be hospitable to the guests of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The following day, Allah subhanho wa Taala informed the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam of the action of this companion. And a lot of xojo loved another integration of law was amazed to the action of this companion, which is a compliment a mirror to his credit, not the law. And this gets back to reflect upon the verse that we recited earlier on why emphysema can be him kasasa they are willing to sacrifice what they need most for others, you'll give up what you want for yourself or in it for yourself and your family. For others. That's why stem is about it's not just about myself, myself,

00:23:47--> 00:23:57

myself, myself, and just me and me and me. My brothers and my sisters, we live in a very selfish society. so selfish, it's just about me. Everything's about me.

00:23:58--> 00:24:00

I want to be served first.

00:24:01--> 00:24:14

I want to take the first I want to be the first one that takes this I want to be the first one that served I want to be the first one in the key I want to be the first one in the line. I want to be the first one on the bus. I want to be the first one in the room. I want to be the first one. I want to be the first one day it's all about me.

00:24:17--> 00:24:18

Not sacrifice,

00:24:20--> 00:24:26

selfishness. We are so embedded with our selfishness that our selfishness is eternal subpar.

00:24:27--> 00:24:31

And even the closest people to us that and families who are selfish.

00:24:32--> 00:25:00

It's always about me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me. We got a house. We're in Mecca and Medina people are going to be the guests of the Prophet Muhammad SAW salah and the guests of Allah subhanho wa Taala and everyone wants to fight. People want to fight over the front seat of the bus. People want to fight I want to get the best room I want to get this ought to be served first. I don't want to stand in the queue. People want to jump the queue this under. So Pamela selfishness. What happened to wait for another emphysema

00:25:00--> 00:25:11

cantabrian kasasa Allah subhanaw taala praises those who are willing to give up most of what they need most for others, for the brothers and sisters sacrifice.

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

You don't have to always be served first.

00:25:15--> 00:25:16

You don't have to be always

00:25:19--> 00:25:24

in front of the queue, or should be the first one to be served or standing in the front line.

00:25:26--> 00:25:26

Give up.

00:25:28--> 00:25:29

Have some courtesy.

00:25:32--> 00:26:04

Especially when we live in a non Muslim or in a non Islamic Society, we need to have a good image we need to have a good presentation when it comes to the lucky trend. For example, when you see someone who's elderly, get up and let this person say, yeah, you came in there before them. Yes, no, you have rights evidence say before anyone else we understand them. But out of courtesy, get up and give this person maybe this elderly person. Maybe this woman for example, give her an opportunity for her to sit down doesn't have to be you. You're a man. Mashallah young man.

00:26:05--> 00:26:12

So, Hannah, we live in a very, very selfish society these days. That's who we are. It's all about us. It's all about me.

00:26:13--> 00:26:17

I want to get everything for myself. And the road rage Allahu Akbar.

00:26:19--> 00:26:27

You want to take over everyone? Oh, yeah, well, oh, yeah, well of us, if someone ever takes you.

00:26:28--> 00:26:34

You ever take me on. But if someone has ever taken a loss and of the world,

00:26:37--> 00:26:39

Armageddon, whatever happens,

00:26:40--> 00:26:55

it's the end of the world. You could do whatever you want to do on the road, but no one's allowed to do anything to you. You could advertise Iran. You could make everyone you do whatever you want to do. But if you see someone do the same thing to you, Allahu Akbar nomads end of the world he

00:26:57--> 00:27:10

said, Honey, we need to come we need to overcome our selfishness. And that's what Islam is about. It teaches you how to overcome your selfishness and overcome all those bad qualities that we have.

00:27:12--> 00:27:34

So this is an amazing story of one of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam when he sacrificed and gave up what he needs most for him and his family and his kids, for the guests of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam following heavy one. And Abby ratar o de la la, la la la la la la la la la Santa Barbara Lee, Danny Catherine Silloth. Well, Thomas aletheia to Kevin Alba.

00:27:35--> 00:27:51

To Alma de vida de with name watermelons Nick Van obatala Bakhita, many, this Hadith of the Prophet Mohammed Salalah alayhi wa sallam in which he says that the fruit of the tree people, it is sufficient for four people. If you have food

00:27:52--> 00:28:02

for two people that sufficient for four people, or in another generation three people. If you have food for four people, that's sufficient for five people another ratio of eight people.

00:28:03--> 00:28:21

Allah subhana wa tada will put the burqa in the food Allah subhanaw taala put the blessing in the food. So if you have food for four people know that this is another three or more people. If you have food for 10 people know that this food is also enough for another 15 people. Allah subhanaw taala put the burqa,

00:28:22--> 00:28:39

and for us and hamdulillah rarely that could even think of that one day more for example, food and that food was just on the door. For us. There's always leftover, always leftover. Never. And so Pamela Baraka you bring people more people am Allah subhanho wa Taala Mr. Burkina

00:28:41--> 00:28:51

so don't be selfish and then always be concerned that this field is not enough for you not this field is enough for you and for others because at the end of the day, the Baraka is from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:28:53--> 00:29:06

The Baraka is from Allah azza wa jal, and was the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was digging up the trench of 100. During the Battle of the configurators, or the observed the allies.

00:29:07--> 00:29:16

The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was suggested upon him, for him to dig up a ditch, from one side of Medina to the other side of Medina was about six kilometers. And as I

00:29:17--> 00:29:31

started digging up the ditch, and digging up that ditch during a very hot season, and not only season but it was also a moment of famine, poverty, like the Sahaba, da da, da, da, da da, even have enough food for them to feed themselves.

00:29:32--> 00:30:00

So as a habit came to the Prophet Muhammad SAW Salaam and a number of them came to the provider salatu salam complaining to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, about the situation, the poor condition where there isn't enough food for them to eat, there isn't enough food for them to sustain themselves. So what they used to do back then when they used to get so hungry and then they start to lose weight, that will tie up a rock on their stomach for them to keep the balance, which is something that you're never going to experience. I'm telling you that from now so they can try it because

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

You're never going to experience. Okay? If you donate five times a day, a lot of what happens. These people haven't eaten for five days.

00:30:07--> 00:30:23

They haven't eaten for a very long time. So because they didn't eat much food, they start to lose a lot of weight and when they start losing a lot of weight dramatically, then they start losing balance. So what they'll do, they'll tie up, they'll tie up a rock on their stomach just to keep up that balance.

00:30:25--> 00:30:40

A group of companions came to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam uncovered a shirt until the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they haven't eaten for days and look at us on that one rock tore up on our stomach. So the Prophet Mohammed Salah Lawson uncovered his shirt, and he said,

00:30:42--> 00:31:15

he saw some uncovered this shirt, and La salatu wa sallam had two rocks torn up on his stomach. Which means what reflects that you have been here for two days haven't eaten for days. And we haven't eaten for three days. I haven't eaten them for six days. Yeah, ball rock around your stomach. I've got two rocks around my stomach. So one of us a habit of the low tide. I don't feel sorry for the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he was very sympathetic and felt sorry for the profanity. salatu salam, I'm sure if you were in that position. You also feel sorry for the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said way back home and I told his wife, Do I have anything? She

00:31:15--> 00:31:17

said, Well, I only have a little girl. A little goat.

00:31:19--> 00:31:20

So I said, Luke,

00:31:21--> 00:31:31

all slaughter that goat. And then you cook it. And by the time we cook it, I'll get to the problem. homosassa them invite him and one or two other people the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam.

00:31:33--> 00:31:53

So she said that Allahu Akbar, we're gonna have an honorable guest, who's this honorable guest today, Mohammed salaallah alayhi wa sallam, he can't have anything greater than this, more honor than this. So he went to the Prophet Muhammad wa salam after he slaughtered that little goat. And she started to cook that goat. And he went and spoken to the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he whispered the name

00:31:54--> 00:32:29

of the man and said petrified, he says, scared that the rest of the Sahaba were starving to death. The author of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said, went to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam spoke in his ear newsprint in his ear, and he said, the Messenger of Allah my wife had cooked some food. And he said, happy and he said, Can you please come along with two three other competitors that you choose? And that's also said no problems. So now we saw some code upon a run or PayPal believers. And hamdulillah we have one generous companion that invited us to his house a lot like above, China embarrassment high earlier, for three four people in episodes I'm gonna drag through

00:32:29--> 00:32:32

400 people. You put yourself in that position?

00:32:34--> 00:32:45

This companion this poor man is so embarrassed, because now he told his wife I only bring it to three people with the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Now he brings an army with him. And it goes home. Yeah, Mara.

00:32:47--> 00:32:48

My wife, I want

00:32:49--> 00:32:55

to bring two three people I brought an army with me. What are we gonna do? Never saw some broader army with him.

00:32:56--> 00:33:08

So let me saw some call them said coming. I'm not embarrassing you. Oh, no, no, no, I'm doing nothing. And I'm trying to put an egg on your face. I'm not embarrassing. You.

00:33:09--> 00:33:10

Just tell your wife.

00:33:11--> 00:33:15

When she takes the scoops and she puts the food not to look into the pot.

00:33:17--> 00:33:28

Just tell her that. When she puts the food in the play out of the pot, tell her not to look in it. Just take a scoop and put it in play one after the other but do not look in the pot.

00:33:29--> 00:33:32

Do not look into the utensil.

00:33:33--> 00:33:36

sandvi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will invite 10 people after

00:33:38--> 00:33:50

they finished like I've never saw someone vote groups one after the other at a time 10 out of time. They'll come in, they'll eat and they'll eat to their maximum. It's not like I get a one bite shimmery Hallmark.

00:33:53--> 00:33:53

In

00:33:54--> 00:33:54

a

00:33:55--> 00:33:57

am satisfied

00:33:59--> 00:34:10

until you are full. So 10 people walk into the house of this companion though eight, and a until they are full, then nobody tells them to go. And then that brings another 10 people and then they'll wait

00:34:11--> 00:34:20

until they're satisfied. And then we saw some of them together number 10 until the rest of the grip of the competitors that have the lowdown on them. And it was still more left in the pot.

00:34:22--> 00:34:24

What happened there? But okay.

00:34:25--> 00:34:40

It's Pamela Birkin. Have you ever lived those days in which Subhanallah that $1,000 they had in your pocket or in your hand? made you live like a king and then sometimes you have $10,000 and they just get blown away?

00:34:41--> 00:34:43

by a blessing.

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

So how Allah in having two brothers, especially those that used to do and Allah subhanaw taala forgive them for the past. Some of them told me what lie chef he used to get a response. They said that they told me they used to go to restaurants and they'll answer

00:35:00--> 00:35:12

And apply coming down on up. fokina apply just on the table another place going and I am spending a and spend and so Pamela walk out of the restaurant to hungry, Nevada

00:35:13--> 00:35:22

and sometimes he very minimal, very minimal food, very humble food and some harmala you feel lucky to have them in

00:35:24--> 00:35:31

Baraka blessings from Allah subhanho wa Taala sir Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in this hadith

00:35:32--> 00:35:41

that the food for one person is enough food to the food for two people is enough for for the food and for papers enough for a

00:35:42--> 00:36:04

at the end of that Allah subhanaw taala is the one that will be the barricade that fit live with Allah subhanaw taala subject to that this food is halal. And he purchased it with halon income. And that's why one sometimes you've got things like people, especially those are involved in the harem, they've got them. They've got everything. But there's no Baraka.

00:36:05--> 00:36:16

They've got the money and I've got the houses, I've got the food and they've got the money to gamble or whatever they want to buy, but the end of the day, there is a power law. At the end of the day they still feel hungry.

00:36:17--> 00:36:19

Now Baraka Baraka comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:36:21--> 00:36:26

In this following Hadith, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also tells us

00:36:28--> 00:36:29

about the importance

00:36:30--> 00:36:33

of depending on Allah subhana wa Taala

00:36:34--> 00:36:42

and it says Allah is Salatu was Salam low under contract over calluna Allah Allah He Hakata wakulla de la con cama

00:36:44--> 00:36:48

de tiempo de masa, Wataru putana

00:36:49--> 00:37:28

prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in this Hadith, if you depend on Allah subhanaw taala, the way Allah subhanaw taala should be dependent on Allah subhanho wa Taala will sustain me the way he sustains a bit early in the morning that bird leaves its nest with an empty stomach. By the end of the day it comes back with what with a full stomach? Who is the one that sustained that bird Allah subhanaw taala Who is the one that directed that bird Allah subhanaw taala Who is the one that provided to that bird Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah azza wa jal made it easy consenting when you depend on Allah subhanaw taala Allah xojo make everything easy. You depend on Allah subhanaw

00:37:28--> 00:37:30

taala civilizer to give you in return

00:37:31--> 00:37:44

the following halitosis says by Episode 187 Amanda bisa La la la la la pachala. Yes, Revo, basato Amina and Russia, Moldova, Belarus Ooh, la la la,

00:37:45--> 00:37:54

la, la La, la, la la la la la la, la la, la, la la, la la la la la la. And this

00:37:55--> 00:38:03

says, while we're with the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, wow, when we went with the Prophet Muhammad, Allah salatu wa sallam,

00:38:04--> 00:38:07

a man came to the Prophet Mohammed la Salatu was Salam.

00:38:08--> 00:38:13

And he started to stay around, like a stranger they came to the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem is carrying around,

00:38:14--> 00:38:21

is hoping to see some things and then we saw some picked up from his action that this man is off to something is a poor man may be stuck in the middle of the desert.

00:38:23--> 00:38:53

And the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, live to the Sahaba. And he said, Whoever has any access, whoever has any access, or whoever has any extra food, give it to those that have it. Whoever has in excess, or any extra food, give it to those who do not have food, and whoever has anything extra on the caravan. Whoever has anything extra on the amount, give it to those who do not have

00:38:54--> 00:39:04

Sharing is caring isn't the what the site will grow up to say Sharing is caring, which unfortunately people don't even implement that but that's exactly what the problem Hamilton law said. I'm saying he shared.

00:39:05--> 00:39:31

A big believer that always keep everything dissolve and deprive other people from having from the worth of a loss of Hannah Tanner, you've got something give it to others. And Allah subhanaw taala replace it allows them to give you more. It's not just about always for yourself. You've got something access, give it to others. You've got extra, give it to others. Someone is in need, give it to others. If it's food, give it to others, if it's clothing, if it's

00:39:32--> 00:39:39

if it's money, give it to others have any Muslim brothers and sisters out there around the world who are in desperate need of $1 up to

00:39:40--> 00:39:52

$1 or two, the dollar or two that means absolutely nothing to us because no one lives on $1 no one in this country lives on $1 makeda asked before they pocket money dad I'll give him less than three four bucks to throw in my face.

00:39:54--> 00:40:00

I remember when I was young my parents gave me 20 cents to 520 cents on it.

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

They think you know, above all 20 cents. Back then somehow the law attorney says it again a lot of things

00:40:08--> 00:40:13

20 cents. Now three four bucks you'll be, you'll be lucky to get one thing.

00:40:15--> 00:40:17

You'll be lucky to buy one item.

00:40:18--> 00:40:57

So Nabi sallallahu Sallam told us a habit of the lowdown on if you've got something extra, give it to someone who doesn't have, share with others. Be generous. That's what Islam is about. It's not just always about me. And you know, my brothers and my sisters, when the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Speaking to the habit of de la Lanham in this manner, not only is the property Salatu was Salam is trying to target or aim that he is about to say the Sahaba giving something. It's also about empowering you with amen and strengthening your established character. Having a greater Islamic character with this is start training yourself to be less selfish.

00:40:58--> 00:41:00

It teaches you to be generous.

00:41:01--> 00:41:20

How are you going to be someone who's a generous person, someone that Allah Subhana Allah loves because Allah subhanaw taala loves those who are generous because Allah subhanaw taala is generous and he loves those who are generous. Are you going to be generous? If you're going to exercise generosity in your life? How are you going to be generous? If we're not going to exercise that in your life? How are you going to be generous if you're not going to implement that in your life?

00:41:21--> 00:41:25

So Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam encourages the Sahaba of the Lord,

00:41:26--> 00:42:12

to break that lust, to break that desire, that selfishness that's embedded in every single one of us. You need to start restricting and limiting your selfishness. And the only way for you to start restricting and limiting your selfishness is by exercising generosity, by exercising generosity, and that's the character of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Lawson, be generous. Give for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Don't hold back. Give for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah, Don't be selfish, be generous, and break the character of selfishness because my brother, my sister is done every single one of us, Allah subhanaw taala had created the good and bad character in them, every single one of

00:42:12--> 00:42:30

us has the good character and that bad character. So I have this character of generosity and selfishness, you have the character of generosity and selfishness. Every single one of us has that character of generosity and selfishness, but it gets back to you. Which one they allow to overcome the other?

00:42:31--> 00:42:39

You're gonna allow your generosity to overcome your selfishness? Or are you going to allow your selfishness to overcome your generosity?

00:42:40--> 00:42:42

Are you going to allow your

00:42:43--> 00:42:48

generous generosity take over your selfishness or your self interest? Take over your generosity

00:42:49--> 00:42:51

he gets back to you.

00:42:52--> 00:42:57

Are you going to let the good character take over the bad character Are you going to allow the bad character take over the good character?

00:42:58--> 00:43:00

It's all in your hand.

00:43:01--> 00:43:07

It's your choice. It's your action. Why you exercise why you implement what you put forward.

00:43:09--> 00:43:14

And when you start exercising more generosity, then it starts to take over selfishness.

00:43:15--> 00:43:19

When you start exercising and implementing more selfishness starts to take over your generosity.

00:43:20--> 00:43:27

And that's why levy salaallah alayhi wa sallam used to teach the Sahaba da da da da da da, da, then they

00:43:28--> 00:43:34

let your generosity take over your selfishness. That's the character of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:43:35--> 00:43:37

And that's why he taught the Sahaba of the law.

00:43:39--> 00:43:47

And you find the inner character of the Sahaba the low tide Adam though willing to sacrifice on the landmass for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala for the sake of one on one another.

00:43:48--> 00:43:52

One of the expeditions after the death of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:43:53--> 00:43:54

It's a famous story

00:43:55--> 00:44:06

as Islam continued to grow, and the Islamic State continued to expand after the death of the Prophet Mohammed saucer during the collapse of Mecca during the level

00:44:07--> 00:44:17

of management, the value of the law to the rest of the holophone until it started ruled by Eastern the West. And it's that became the most powerful empire back then.

00:44:19--> 00:44:23

And one of the expeditions and one of the one of the battles on the battlefield.

00:44:24--> 00:44:30

There were competitors were fighting and they were fighting to death to uphold the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:44:32--> 00:44:42

So you could imagine firing in the middle of the desert under the hot sun with very minimal minimal facilities, very minimal equipments, instruments.

00:44:43--> 00:44:45

Artillery to the end of it.

00:44:47--> 00:44:53

So one of the companions or one of the believers sees one of the companions on the ground, about to die

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

and screaming for water, water, water, water

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

So one companion comes to the rescue

00:45:04--> 00:45:07

with a bottle of water to give to his brother.

00:45:08--> 00:45:10

And then the moment

00:45:12--> 00:45:46

that this companion that was on the ground or this believer that was on the ground, about to drink a sip of water, he heard another companion, another fellow brother, he's calling also for water, water water. So this companion that's about to die from thirst. He's his other brother calling for water. And he's about to take that first sip of water. I chose the other companion that's offering water I say, No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Thank you to me. My other brother. He's a bit more than me. So I got to him. Randy saving, spare his life.

00:45:48--> 00:45:49

So he leaves him

00:45:50--> 00:45:51

and he gets to the second one.

00:45:52--> 00:46:38

And the second one is calling out for water. Water saved me in a bad guy from thirst. So this compelling, about to quench his thirst by offering water, and the moment the the neck of the bottle came to his mouth, and he's about to drink a sip of water. He's another companion, he's another Muslim, on the battlefield, calling for water and saying water water. Say me, I want water. So this companion also sacrifices, the sip of water that he was about to drink for his other brother, for his other Muslim Brothers that's about to die, and tells the Muslim brother that's there to give him a space by by quenching his thirst and giving him water from the bottle of water doesn't No no, no

00:46:38--> 00:46:42

brother, it seems that my other brother is also in need of water. So leave me again space life.

00:46:44--> 00:46:45

The first one did the

00:46:46--> 00:47:11

and he gave up what he needed most, which is aura. Phase our brothers I was calling for water. And then the other one gave up what he needed most, which is water for his third brother that needed that most, by the time that this companion, this believer that had that bottle of water going around and give him water to the rest of the believers. When he went to the third one. It was too late. He died.

00:47:13--> 00:47:16

So he ran back to the first one to spare his life.

00:47:17--> 00:47:30

And he was also dead. So he ran to the second one despite his life, and he was also dead. So Pamela, they sacrifice their lives for one another. Why is Iran Allah unfussy him?

00:47:32--> 00:47:33

Well, okay, and IBM has also

00:47:35--> 00:47:39

not willing to give up what they need most what they love most.

00:47:40--> 00:47:53

Whether in desperate need off for one another. That's what you call Amen. What made those three believers give up on the needed most for one another, despite each other's life?

00:47:54--> 00:48:04

Despite the love of his other brother, what made them do that Islam. And what made them do that is because they managed to ever take their selfishness with their generosity.

00:48:05--> 00:48:08

That's their character. That's the character of a believer.

00:48:09--> 00:48:15

That's the character of the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam he himself was amazed from and he said, amazing to the character of a believer.

00:48:16--> 00:48:18

And no one does that, except I believe them.

00:48:20--> 00:48:31

Except I believe him. If it wasn't for him, and my brother, my sister, you would not even be the kids and children, in our little boy outside myself, and then I could have more kids.

00:48:34--> 00:48:45

You won't even do that to you and spells he won't even think about the family. But when there's a man and a man had embedded the heart and had taken over the heart, you'll do that for every Morehead and every person on the face of this earth.

00:48:47--> 00:48:51

In the face of loss and until just a better man. And look how far Islam goes to

00:48:52--> 00:49:05

look how far Islam goes to and never saw Sam tells us about a man from the previous nations. While he was traveling in the middle of the desert. He was so thirsty that he saw a will.

00:49:06--> 00:49:24

So he went down in that world and drank water. There was no bucket for him to take down the bucket, the bottom of the world and pick up water and drink himself. So I had to get there on himself in the world drink water and then it came up when he came up when he managed to ascend the world.

00:49:25--> 00:49:33

And he reached to the entrance of the world and about to come out he saw the dog dog

00:49:34--> 00:49:35

Kelly

00:49:38--> 00:49:39

he saw a first the dog

00:49:41--> 00:49:59

say thought about and he said it looks like that this dog and narration says that this dog was drinking or eating the dust out of thirst. Yeah Kulasekara, in the Hadith, the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem. So this man that came down in the world after a drink from that, well, he came out and he said

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

So a thirsty dog that was eating the dust out of hunger and thirst.

00:50:06--> 00:50:13

So this believing man, what did he say to himself say that he said to himself, it seems that this dog had reached to the level of thirst

00:50:15--> 00:50:16

that I had reached to.

00:50:18--> 00:50:27

And he felt sorry, sympathy. You know, we're talking about sympathy here, say, felt a bit of sympathy for the dog, and what's a dog an animal. And when you want to abuse someone, you call them a dog.

00:50:29--> 00:50:31

It's not something that you want to boast about.

00:50:33--> 00:50:52

So this man, this believing man, he said, it looks like that this dog had reached to the level of thirst, knowledge to say went down to the bottom of the world, picked up with his own shoes, the Hadith the Prophet Muhammad SAW Some said precise, he picked up order with his entries, and gave the order to the thirsty dog.

00:50:54--> 00:50:59

In the beast, Allah says, Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him the agenda because of this section.

00:51:02--> 00:51:06

Allah subhanho wa Taala admitted him the agenda because of this section.

00:51:07--> 00:51:09

What kind of action is done

00:51:10--> 00:51:14

quenching the thirst of a dog, an animal.

00:51:15--> 00:51:17

But this goes back to sympathy.

00:51:18--> 00:51:24

Having that sympathy having the sympathy towards the creation of Allah subhanaw taala human beings or animals,

00:51:26--> 00:51:35

letting your generosity overtake your selfishness. It's not just about me. It's not about me, it's not about myself. It's not always about you.

00:51:36--> 00:51:42

You need to come out of this, you think me thing, and it's us, care about others.

00:51:44--> 00:51:45

have sympathy towards others.

00:51:47--> 00:52:18

Try and serve others. And that's what Islam is about. It's damn easy to work with one another tablet sympathy. That's what Islam is about. If Allah subhanaw taala gave the agenda to this man because he quench the thirst of a dog. Can you imagine Allah subhanaw taala Did someone if it gives that to a human being, if you quench the thirst of someone who is thirsty, and obviously here in this country, we don't have that we don't have someone who's about to die from thirst, you're not going to get that there's 1000 taps out there, wherever you go. But you've got your brothers and sisters overseas,

00:52:19--> 00:52:20

in Burma,

00:52:22--> 00:52:23

and Palestine,

00:52:24--> 00:52:25

and Iraq.

00:52:26--> 00:52:28

In our let us make it easy three quarters of the Muslim world.

00:52:30--> 00:52:30

Unfortunately,

00:52:31--> 00:52:33

70 people out there,

00:52:34--> 00:52:38

then even have a sip of water for them to quench their thirst of the thirst of their children.

00:52:39--> 00:52:59

Look at this, a bottle of water. Look around. So you know, how much does it cost 20 cents 30 cents, walk away, who cares. But this bottle of water people forever means nothing to me. And you see, and I this bottle of water is nothing but to others. Their life depends on this bottle of water.

00:53:01--> 00:53:08

hamdulillah we are living up here. We've got everything in hamdulillah we're so fortunate to be living in a country like the country that we live in

00:53:10--> 00:53:22

with everything that we've gotten the lecture though other people that have been experienced. But if you want to send away experience when you wake up in the morning, and he said Thursday, and you were concerned about a cup of water never,

00:53:23--> 00:53:24

never

00:53:26--> 00:53:27

doesn't exist.

00:53:28--> 00:53:37

You could drink water anytime, from anywhere. Well, unfortunately, the vast majority people around the world don't have the luxury they have

00:53:38--> 00:54:09

that have the facilities they have. A lot of people wake up at night, a lot of people wake up the following day, they've got nothing else, or they've got no water for them to drink. And that's what we as Muslims and hamdulillah we think about no Donna would think what Allah subhanaw taala bestowed upon us. And we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for the number they had given us and was that Allah as owner for the worth of the lecture they had given us but at the same time, we need to be sympathetic, we need to care, at least that sign of care, at least that sign of sympathy that we care about others, we care about what's happening around the world, we care about our brothers and

00:54:09--> 00:54:10

sisters.

00:54:11--> 00:54:13

Even if you contribute the smallest contribution,

00:54:14--> 00:54:25

even if it's something literal, it doesn't have to be something big. And I mentioned this in the past a lot of the times about this perception that if I want to give something for the sake of Allah, it's gotta be something massive, no, your contribution could be $1 for the sake of Allah Zoda.

00:54:27--> 00:54:35

But as long as you train yourself and exercises of you teach yourself that quality of generosity

00:54:36--> 00:54:43

and you restrain and limit the quality that you would use selfishness because every single one of us has

00:54:44--> 00:54:46

some people expand it

00:54:47--> 00:54:48

and others diminish it.

00:54:50--> 00:54:54

Some people thrive it and others

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

diminish it limited. So we need to start training ourselves to be

00:55:00--> 00:55:36

This topic was the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was in the habit of the Lord with the with generous and the Prophet Mohammed Salah was so generous that the Sahaba of the low tide and described the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he's always generous or more generous in the month of Ramadan than any other month as the Prophet Mohammed Salah was described in the month of Ramadan, he was like, so, so generous in the month of Ramadan, like a wind, or a breeze that government passed. You know, when a breeze gets passed, it touches everything and everyone. So let's say you were a big farm and there's a nice breeze there, that breeze just gets up every train

00:55:36--> 00:55:44

every clan, and every flower in the bisazza was like this in the month of Ramadan. It was so generous, that his generosity was encompassing and inclusive to everyone.

00:55:46--> 00:55:55

character of the Prophet Mohammed Salah, Salah, and he could he can't even imagine a character of selfishness and the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. He can't even imagine that.

00:55:57--> 00:56:21

You can even imagine the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam ever had an opportunity for him to have something to give it to others on themselves and didn't do them. We just mentioned before, have a prophet Mohammed Salah when he had that guest, a man that came to the Prophet la saucers are hungry and he's saying I'm about to collapse from hunger in Episode One around his entire household. And how many households the Prophet Muhammad SAW said above, it had nine households on one stage,

00:56:22--> 00:56:23

one stage in

00:56:25--> 00:56:32

non household and not even one household, not even one household had food.

00:56:33--> 00:57:11

For the Prophet Muhammad, Allah sometimes offered his guests not everyone household, not everyone any water. And the words of the Prophet Mohammed Salah, some describe the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and a new moon and then another new moon and then a third New Moon. That's one month and a half. That's nearly 50 days. We'll get past the love of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and it's not even a cooking fire that's later on in the house of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam there's nothing there. The Ask the words of the Prophet Muhammad Allah azza wa jal they said we still live on date and water. Imagine the live on dates on water 50 days that's a lot

00:57:11--> 00:57:36

of the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salah. Is it hard for the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to have nice food, tasty food. It's not hard to get the Prophet Mohammed Salim the option if you wanted the Valley of Mecca full of God the Lord given to him by Neville Southall himself or rather, eat one day and thank Allah subhanaw taala for the food they had given me and stop one day and have patience for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala

00:57:38--> 00:57:49

look at the mindset of the Prophet Muhammad sosman Always, always, how can I please Allah subhanaw taala How can I please allies origin? How can I get closer to Allah subhanaw taala That's

00:57:50--> 00:57:59

awesome. That's a concern of the profile is awesome. How can I just get closer to Allah xojo please Allah subhanaw taala How can Allah subhanaw taala be pleased from me

00:58:01--> 00:58:19

an opportunity that Allah gave him to live like a king with a kingdom that's unprecedented. Never ever in the past, never existed in the past, but I'd rather eat one day and start one thing. The day though, as I have the law staff love having patience for your sake, suffer

00:58:21--> 00:58:26

some harmala these days of Panama, if the one doesn't cook the best of food papers are not enough.

00:58:29--> 00:58:41

Children who all have children or children they come home if you don't feed the one the grown up on this. On the hour want this somehow? What about this? I don't like it. What's wrong with it? I just don't like

00:58:44--> 00:58:47

our burgers on pizzas, on chips. What about

00:58:48--> 00:58:58

this? And what about the narrow like it? It's a panel allows a panel that giving you this and we have that character. But unfortunately within the next generations even worse, I've got kids of my own.

00:58:59--> 00:59:10

We say sometimes not satisfied or not content. We need to start teaching our children to be content. But has our children going to be content? How are children going to be contented what I can tell ourselves

00:59:12--> 00:59:20

if we're not going to be content ourselves, not gonna be content, contentment and satisfaction in the name of Allah subhanaw taala is a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:59:22--> 00:59:23

Listen to me and act upon the destiny
