Bismillah salatu salam, ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were bad. Every human intrinsically inherently desires to better and advanced his life stagnation is not in the nature of humans we want to improve we want to upskill we want to refurbish This is our nature and we try we strive we we do different things coming up in your virtual Bashara tabula rasa, we're coming to LA for your level better, but the reality in life happens many times contrary to what we wish hope and pray for. So the poet says come in. I've been here before people are hoping wishing for glad tidings. The doorbell rings, the phone rings, the message, the phone beeps hopefully something good

00:01:03--> 00:01:46

the deal has come through or some you know, unexpected good fortune has fallen in your lap. Contrary to that fact, Abdullah hula Hazara youdiscover have some setbacks and snags some challenges, some hiccup, some hurdles, some impediment coming up in your delivery Bella, you hoping for a gift. And on the reverse, you have to contend with a challenge. And we wish we wish that you know what a lottery can come through, not in the literal sense, but some miracle can happen. And it is that passion within us for some some miracle to happen in our life, that from time to time we request the prayers of the pious people which is noble and meritorious. It's great, it's wholesome, it's

00:01:46--> 00:02:27

amazing. I asked my parents to pray for me. I asked my teachers to pray for me I asked the pious to pray. However, the thing I want to focus on today that we need to realize if we look into the lives of the noble companions, may Allah be pleased with them. They had requested the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for two hours, and that's irrefutable. But by and large, the request factor was not so prevalent as the earning was was prevalent. So they earned the two hours they earned the two hours, they want the confidence of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And then he would just flow with two hours in their favor. Yes, they are different occasions in which they requested glass, and

00:02:27--> 00:02:56

that's fine, and that's good, and it has its position, and it cannot be denied or refuted. But what I want to say to you, my brother and my sister is the magic lies in earning two hours and not in requesting to us. That's the message and that's the essence. So we share with you an amazing incident that Eman Buhari has spoken about regarding wavenet Giada alboreto via la escena Marula to Philip Misawa. He had accepted Islam in the seventh year in the seventh year

00:02:58--> 00:03:38

of his era. And after accepting Islam, there is a particular incident there is a particular incident that is mentioned where the messenger sallallahu wasallam had given him a dinar and assigned him a task to buy a lamb to buy a sheep. So for after the dinar, when he took the dinar, the gold coin that the messenger sallallahu Sallam gave him And off he went and his mind was running, how can I maximize the benefit of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So he was assigned the task but now he's thinking how for the benefit of the messenger sallallahu wasallam I can secure this revenue this money and get him his sheep and lamb. Of course he didn't have surplus wealth, we need to understand

00:03:38--> 00:03:53

that we need to understand that if he had surplus it was very easy. Just keep that money, buy a lamb and bring it back and say Yo prophet of Allah, he has the money and he has the lamb, but he didn't have surplus. You know, we read about the incident of Musab depening Romero de la manga in what

00:03:54--> 00:03:57

in what they are so bad, when what the original

00:03:58--> 00:04:36

that when he is blasted head was covered with his coffin, his feet were exposed and when the feet were covered, the head was exposed. And I heard from my honorable and venerable teacher, that the prophets of Allah we know the prophet SAW Some said that covered the head with the coffin and the clock, and then cover the feet with the leaves. He said the fact that the feet were covered with the leaves is an indication that none of the other companions had any surplus cloth. Otherwise, they would definitely avail of it, and they would offer it as a coffin for most Abner men, and he was the very person regarding whom the messenger sallallahu Sallam said laka Musab benhadad be maka wanna be

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

Makita fatten

00:04:39--> 00:05:00

me No, la Tanaka Delica Kula who have been de la jolla Rasulullah. He, I remember this very young man. He was the most well clad well attire most flagrant young man in Makkah. And today he lives a life of poverty and humanity and he dies as a pauper and he had had given up this life of wealth and fame and

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

flamboyance for the pleasure of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The noble companions used to say that we believe it was Mousavi Amir who was referenced in this verse, amongst other Sahaba minalima many Narayan Sakuma de la la. It's a verse of the 21st Jews in Surah. Amazon in which Allah says amongst the believers are those who honor the covenant and the agreement and the pledge that they make to Allah. Anyway, that was a side comment, but hopefully an objective digression to understand the context of what we are discussing. So he didn't have surplus wealth. He went to the marketplace he found the person selling and he was selling you know, lambs for a dinner

00:05:41--> 00:05:50

for sale, one to Sahiba, who I negotiated with him, and I managed to get two for one dinner, two lambs for a profit for one day down

00:05:52--> 00:06:34

to Asuka Houma, I took the two I gave him the DNR and I'm coming in my mind is I wish I can get maximum benefit for the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And for now, it's good that he told me to buy one and I managed to get two. So I'm coming with the two lambs and I've given the one DNR fella theological and on the way a person needs me. And he asked me are you selling one? I said, Yeah, I could probably sell it if you're interested and we can settle on an amount Why not? So then for our money, myself and him negotiated and we discussed an active business was taking place here and then for two who shot the dinar, I then sold him one lamb for a dinar. So now I'm happy I'm excited. I'm

00:06:34--> 00:07:16

elated, that I've got the dinar back and I got the lamp. And this was not for my own benefit that I could pocket. In principle, I could have done that, but no, I was talking to you and I was speaking about the magic of earning two hours. So I came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the dinar in Russia thing. I said, Oh messenger sallallahu Sallam years the dinar that you gave me and yours, the Lamb that you requested me to purchase. So he asked me what happened. I said, Oh prophets, Allah ism, this is what happened and this is what I did. After that auroa in Nigeria deliberately didn't request the prophets Allah is gonna make dua for me, Allah May Allah He is his gesture, his selfless

00:07:16--> 00:08:05

nature, his generous nature, his desire to maximize the revenue, benefit and profit for the Prophet sallallahu wasallam just brought the sense of extreme joy and happiness, and the messenger sallallahu Sallam then prayed for him. And he said Allahumma barik ala houfy suffer Katia meanie Allah bless the transactions of his hand. Allah bless the transaction. You know, in ancient times, they talk of kimia alchemy alchemy, where they talk of converting metal into gold in like a miraculous way in ancient times if you read about it, because it speaks about kimia etc. So ltk Mia, this was one thing that you could think and fantasize, listen to the narration. The narration goes

00:08:05--> 00:08:56

on to say that when the messenger sallallahu wasallam, prayed for him, for gun Allah with Stara taravella be happy he that even if he had to lay his hands on sand, it would turn into profit material, and it will generate revenue. The second narration can mean activity and in Kufa. tema close the application of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in his favor. He became the wealthiest person in Kufa. Third narration canon Yoruba who are berrien Kula Yeoman de Bercy Dr. Wu sallallahu sallam, his net profit daily was 40,000 Durham's as a result of the draw of the messenger sallallahu sallam, fourth generation when he would leave his home in the morning to go to the marketplace. The

00:08:56--> 00:09:38

Sahaba would come in the numbers and thrown around him and they would say to him Oh Rotorua as the canopy Bay Ray can we be partners with you today? Whatever deal you're doing, we want to be partners with you. Because we know for a fact that your partnership will prosper because the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had prayed for you. So when we open up a shop, it's a norm that we have pious people to come off two units of prayer, make it law, which is great, my brother, that's amazing. I have no issue that may Allah bless and increase and attract the goodness of pious people etc. But I'm saying to you, maybe if it is a food outlet, and you give some food to hungry people,

00:09:38--> 00:09:48

and they're hungry bellies will make dua for you. Trust me that will bring you more goodness than the prayer of the sage of the age.
