honorable scholars respected brothers, elders, mothers and sisters, as humans as mortals, by our very instinct and our temperament we are prone to
whether it is the decisions we make or the choices we exercise. Sometimes we regret the car we bought, or the home with soul, and many without generalizing have second thoughts on the partners they read.
But like they say in English, the problem with children is and the same applies to partners. They not returnable.
Children are not returnable. partners are not returnable. So this man got married. He wasn't all that impressed. He wrote a letter to his mother in law product doesn't satisfy the requirement.
So she replied she was an intellectual mother in law. She said, seal broken warranty void.
You've deflowered her, and now you want to drop her in dumper.
My point is in essence, fal ability is part of our nature. We are fallible creatures. We will we will slip we will regret our decisions are flawed, are blemished. This is common. This is human This is in our instinct. The flip side of the coin is that Allah subhanho wa Taala is flawless, his blemishes, he is impeccable and he is infallible. When he chose Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam as the paragon of his creation, they possibly could be no second opinion to this decision.
Everything of Allah subhanho wa Taala is pure and pristine.
Not only with the humans, even the angels, even the jinn not everyone saluted on it and revered this decision of Allah. To the extent that Arabic poet said shahidul will be fatherly, he had a de facto measure, he tried to be healed.
That leaves the Muslim world, even the foe and the enemy, and those who are hostile to Islam had to concede that we disliked Mohammed, but he is the greatest human sallallahu wasallam. And then the Arabic board goes on to say, Well fuck the Luma shade needed to be healed.
The excellencies of an individual is that to which his enemy can testify and not his friends,
the excellency of an individual is that to which his enemy can testify, not to focus just to focus. Our topic of discussion today is solace in the prophetic teachings amidst global unrest.
I don't have to elaborate to you. Perhaps if somebody could just attend to the brothers as they are streaming in, Mashallah we have an overflowing audience, may Allah reward you, if somebody could just Usher them in and settle them down, so that we could maintain momentum in the in the talk.
The the focus of the topic is
that how do we find guidance, a solace
in the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this hostile climate around us when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
Lamb was selected and nominated and crowned with profit would the it Karima that I recited some disbelievers objected to this and they said wakanow Lola no Zilla
novella rajani minakari attain.
Why was not the Quran revealed on a more prominent personality between Makkah and tarrif and their inference? And their reference was to either worried about a movie or even a Mossad who lived in part if they said these are more prominent, high profile intense, intellectually stimulating humans. They were more deserving candidates for Prophethood this was the objection. Allah has given many answers. The immediate response of the Quran was a homey oxymoron or a matter of
a homey oxymoron. Arabic Nando Casa de novo marisha tahune Phil hayata dunya we haven't allowed the human kind to decide their own sustenance, how will we allow them to decide who becomes a prophet?
no human has the ability to decree and define his own sustenance. Fellow anila coolatta superest lachenal marinda Willow Cooley, if it was sheer intellect that secured wealth, then the intellectual would be wealthy. But I have seen people who perhaps don't know how to sign yet they own empires, yet they own empires. This is the reality and it is Allah who decides the sustenance of every person beat as it may the point i'm saying is when Allah chose Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah groomed fashioned his life to perfection, and it is only in his prophetic formula will you and I and the world in its entirety, with the global unrest that is unfolding on the political landscape of
the world, and many things are happening, we have to turn to the noble life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to find direction, guidance and navigation. Now what I want to do today is I want to extract certain angles from his blessed life. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a human to fellow non Muslims, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a partner to his honorable consoles, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a father to his children. And he said along earlier he was selling them as a senior to juniors. So they buy, try and internalize this into our lives.
The first point of reflection from his blessed life sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was when he migrated
from Mecca to Medina, and in the interim, they had gone to perform the hombre and they were denied entry into Mecca. Subsequently, the peace treaty was signed. And you need to know and let me refresh your memory that when this peace treaty was signed, it was a very one sided thing. It was leaning in favor of the disbelievers, and it was against the Muslims. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam agreed to the very budget clauses to the very very bitter clauses, to the extent the Hadith in Bukhari Sharif, the climate was so hostile against the Muslims. The climate was so hostile, that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them, let's sign this pact, in this agreement, and
he said, right, this is an agreement between Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the people of Makkah, they said, this is at the heart of our contention. This is at the heart of our contention. We don't accept you as the Prophet of Allah. If we accepted you, we would have allowed you in Makkah, you will rephrase the Specht in agreement by saying this is an agreement between Mohammed the son of Abdullah simply because we don't recognize your Prophet would
Sahaba were in rage and fury.
Nabi sallallahu wasallam said I am the Prophet of Allah even if you choose to deny it.
They said we won't go ahead tell you don't delete an era is nobody saw some till the Sahaba de Sahaba took a back step they said only be over Allah. This is literally pushing the boundaries too far.
This is now pushing the boundaries just too far. I don't think we bound to bow backwards. We've given to every request of this. Nabi sallallahu, wasallam said, Show it to me where it's written, because he was unlettered and he sallallahu wasallam. Then deleted it. So agreement continued, and the beauty part of this year is I don't want to digress into the details of this. Immediately they have the suit was revealed. And in Surah Fatah, Allah made reference to the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is Mohammed medora rasulillah Valentina Morocco a shade
of rowhammer lubaina Juan Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is the Prophet of Allah, the scholars of deceit unpack this and they say in this verse, Allah made detailed reference a lot he didn't say Mohammed Omar Mohamed
Omar Bashir, Amira Sunni team member of the smooth Ahmed oneplace, Allah said Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ahmed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but your Allah gave a detailed explanation and Allah said Muhammad Rasul Allah, and what is the wisdom and what is the time what is the explanation that you chose to deny this name in your pact? Immediately we gave a detailed recognition in the Quran.
So neither your pact remain, no you remain but Muhammad Sallallahu soms name remain in the Quran. One of the agreements were one of the clauses work that if a Muslim migrates or if a Muslim moves from Medina to Makkah, then he will be withheld and apprehended and he will not be returned to Medina. But even non Muslim leaves from Makkah and he comes to Medina, then he will come so do so freely, he will not be harassed, he will not be intimidated, he will not be apprehended, he will be given a free passage into Medina doing his work and return back to Makkah without any form of harassment. This particular deal was in process, when it's a hobby by the name of abou Jindal was
shackled. And he was kneeled and he came before the Sahaba. His condition was rather appalling. He was bruised, he was hurt, he was injured, there was blood oozing from his body Sahaba on an emotional note, they barely had to contend with the hostility of the denial of no visa license name, then they had to digest this difficult clause, and it coincides with a Sahabi who is shackled before them. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said okay, in principle, I agree to this clause. If any Muslim migrates from Mecca to Medina, then we will return him, we will return him. But he's a man. We haven't yet gone back. Can we make an exception to the clause in his favor only. That's it. Oh
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If you open the topic again, we'll scrap the whole agreement.
sahabas rage and fury, panic and emotion knew no bounds. Nobody saw some looked at him. And he said, I've tried my level best. I've exhausted communication, but really they display in great hostility, persevere and return. It's a painful sight, and it hurts my emotions. May Allah be with you. Can you imagine? Sahaba were not seen footage. They were not seen. They were seen to live the man in front of him. This was how aggressive the hostility was. But what was the formula of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. On a subtle note, on a subtle note, this made inroads for the disbelievers from Makkah to come to Medina with great ease and comfort. And what happened? They came as businessmen.
They looked at the climate of Medina, they studied the lives of Medina, they seen the atmosphere of Medina, they were impressed by the ambience of Medina, they came estrangement, and they return the Sahaba.
History bears testimony to the fact history bears testimony to the fact that in the blessing, 23 years of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam no period, no campaign, no expedition brought such an influx into Islam is what they be added. As for they be added. Each campaign an expedition had its plus and it's good. But today we are suddenly then they knew that we that the Muslims are governed by a peace treaty and they cannot harass us. So they would come into Medina and separatists Look at how beautiful these people's lives are. Just look at how wholesome they character is. Just look at how awesome their dealings are. It is so brilliant, so wonderful. And these were the type of
things one incident of once a hobby and then we'll move on to the point. Jerry ribbon Abdullah Virgilio, the Allahu anhu this is mentioned by Imam nawawi the great Shafi scholar who has done the commentary on Muslim Sharif
Julian Abdullah Jr. The Allahu anhu had vowed to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam an amazing vow, the Sahaba used to come and make different vows. his vow was I will be kind faithful and loyal to every Muslim in all my affairs and all my dealings. So one day he goes to purchase a horse from a person by Yato nebia sallallahu wasallam and induce liquidly Muslim. He goes to the person who says brother, are you selling the source? He says yes, what's the price? 400 dirhams? He tells the person you undercharging me charge me more. He said hello
Imagine Have you ever heard of this type of interaction, but these were the students who were groomed in the lab of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and they became the shining stars. And that's my message. I don't have to spell out to you what tension there is in the world. I don't have to spell out to the Anunnaki in the world. You open up any paper, you see there's a credit crunch. There's a political chaos. There's internal issues, there's, there's social issues, there's security issues, there's corruption. The world has been plagued with multiple problems, in addition to the catastrophes. If you read the papers, barely a week or a month pass by, if it's not the winds of
Allah, then it's the waters of Allah. If it's not the waters of Allah, it's the earth of Allah. If it's not the earth of Allah, it's an epidemic that breaks out hence the Quran concludes and says mama Allah mucho de Becker Illa who only Allah knows what forms his army, because it's whenever he wants to deploy the water, he deploys it when he wants to deploy anything else. He deploys it. He said, You charging me too little brother, raise the price. It says okay, great. Make it 500 He said, I think that's also too little. Make it more it says okay, 600 I'm fine. Go for it. He says 700 he says no, that's also let's make it more. Finally he doubles the price and it comes to 800 when it
comes to 800 Jerry Redknapp de la Viola gives the 800 takes the horse and he goes out, he meets someone Mashallah great horse, what you paid 800 Oh, I could get it for a song man, I would get you to for that price. He said my brother, I could have done the same thing. But I have vowed to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. I'm not going to go out to exploit and to make money out of people, but I'm going out to benefit the masses in its entirety. And I am more than happy that I have honored my vow. I respected my covenant. For me, that's the achievement and not the fact that I paid an exorbitant amount and I could have got two horses at this price.
So the point I am saying is, let's see how the profits of aligning with silom had conducted himself. In this period of time this was the clause any Muslim coming from Makkah must be returned to Medina. It's so happened after it was over the Muslims returned to Medina. Subsequently some Muslim woman decided to embrace Islam leave their husbands and they came to Medina. Now the claws suggest that they must be returned. And if they are returned as a feeble as a weak agenda, they are at the risk of exploitation and abuse. And in the interim, this ayah was revealed to make an exception from the clause. Yeah yo Latina man Oh, Raja Kumari. Minato Mahajan, Ratan Tata Nano hoon. Allahu Allah mobi.
Imani in for him to moon Amina, Fela Taraji rune,
who believe as much as the clause is binding as much as the agreement is binding. But if a Muslim woman migrates from Mecca to Medina to preserve a man, you cannot return her. You cannot return her, you will have to comfort her. You will have to shelter her, you will have to give her asylum and amnesty. What you do have to do is ascertain that she is motivated by faith and not anything else. She could well leave her native land for reasons other than Iman in Islam. So when she comes gives us amnesty and security. But look at the beauty of Islam. The hostility is at its peak, it's at its climax. There is an exception made to the clause. But the Quran is cognizant of the rights that we
owe to fellow humans Muslim or non Muslims. In fact, I must I must add on by saying I must add on by saying that while Islam exhorts us to discharge our obligation to Allah and to fellow humans, Islamic exhortation is much more stern when it comes to fellow humans. Islamic exhortation is much more stern. So at this juncture, the Quran says that the Muslim woman that migrate give them amnesty to whom and Baku but remember her non Muslim husband who wedded her, he had given her dowry, and this man has now forfeited his dowry. So you give amnesty to this woman in Medina, but it is your duty that you locate the non Muslim husband in Makkah, and you pay back his do the dowry that he had
given to this woman that he got married.
What is the beauty of Islam? What is the teachings of Islam? Allah jurymen nakane Shanna no comin Allah Allah tala de leeuw. And let not the enmity and the hostility of a nation provoke you to injustice era de leeuw Acropolis taqwa, obey the Allahu anhu. He was apprehended by some non Muslim people and the day they after he was to be
executed, and it's a very, very emotional tale. And while he was in the custody of these people who had captured him, and they wanted to offset a revenge because he had killed one of their families in a in a particular battle, one of the children from that house went and sat down in Habiba the Illinois lab knowing not that this is the murder of one of my uncle's and tomorrow, my parents will be killing this man. He's not from us, but a child doesn't know color and race. It is you and I and society that makes a child prejudice. Remember that fit throttle law hill at fatahna saleha. Today, it is society that creates boundaries, artificial boundaries and barriers. The child grows a very
beautiful, honest and an innocent. One of my friends had shared with me an incident once his son was ill, and was admitted into a hospital and a clinic. And he says, we went to visit the child. And obviously he was in the pediatric ward, where he was given given some care. And we went there and we gave him a hug and an embrace. And he says, Mom, but that's not fair. You need to kiss all the children in the ward.
You need to kiss all the children in the ward. And that's the time I realized that the child has no boundaries. He has no definition of color and creed. These are children just like us. So the child runs into the lap of Habiba the Allahu anhu.
And in his hand was a blade. Suddenly a woman from the house came out, and she realized that this baby is in the hands of the man who we will be killing. What will stop him from venting his frustration on this child, and how they sense the panic on the face of this woman. He said at the sheen, an akula, who also said do you think my Islam teaches me? That if you and I have an issue, I must become aggressive with this defenseless innocent child? I'm afraid your facts are muddled about Islam.
My Deen is too pure. My Teachings are pristine. This is an innocent child. He embraced the child hug the child, knowing very well. Tomorrow this child's father will be putting a sword on me.
She then went on to say more I see you're on mithila Whoa, baby. I've seen many prisoners and captives in my life. But this captive being a captive in his captivity, the character he has displayed has impressed me greatly about Islam.
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam lost his wife, Rita de la Juana, a very, very emotional moment in his life. A very, very emotional moment.
holed up into hachimura de la Mancha, came to his door and said, Oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a prophet of Allah. Can we propose on your behalf? He said, Who will you propose to?
They said if you want, we could take the proposal to Isla de la Juana the daughter of Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu or we could take the proposal to sadara the Alanna she was more elder in a Nevis awesome said Okay, take the proposal to both. The proposal was brought to the house of Abubakar Delano listen to this year. When I'm saying what is our topic, comfort in the prophetic formula The only way out, Allah groomed his life to perfection, not only for that period of time, but for the periods in which history will evolve till the Day of cuyama. And we'd have to go back to the drawing board, we will have to go back to the drawing board and internalize his impeccable character if we want to
make a profound impact on the world at this time of turbulence and challenge that has plagued the world.
They come and knock on the door of Abu Bakr radi Allahu. Zainab, Allah and the wife of Abu Bakar, better known as Omar Oman. And this woman says, oh, the family of Abu Bakar
your good fortune knows no limits. They say What do you mean? Say Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam is proposing to your daughter? Can you fathom and comprehend and apply your mind? What joy jubilation excitement, happiness and ecstasy bliss would grab the house of that family to know the greatest human is proposing? A Mama bouhanni for describing the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said one Mohammedan verschuren lay second bestiary le aku to Hassan Lisa Kalahari that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam was a human but he wasn't the average human. And then he elaborates on it. He says the Ruby is also a stone, it's not the common stone. It's a stone. It's a pearl, it's a stone but it's not
your average stone. He was the human he wasn't the average human. They overwhelmed with joy. But what does Abubakar Delano say? He says that Muslim a banner ad has made a whisper in my ears that he's interested in getting married to my daughter I Sharia law.
I am overwhelmed. I am overwhelmed by this privilege, but I have to first go and I have to clarify with him because we have some verbal contract in place. I mean I'm asking you if somebody comes in proposals and then you have you know, I often say like one scholar said, generally what is the norm today? If a man comes to propose in a in a simple car clad in simple dressing, then what does the sister say? Okay, I'm going to look into the matter we will make use the hora about it. And then if the man comes fluently dress Wellesley, there is another beautiful, no, the answer is positive. The answer is positive. Subhan Allah, did you expedite the process? You suddenly didn't have the need of
consulting Allah, how did you minus the istikhara from the equation? So if he comes well cleared exclusively, there's driving a beautiful car. Then we are met today is the hora from the equation. But it is a simple breaking even just getting his feet in society. We sit down discuss with the family will let you know. You have Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam at your door. What an honor. Abubakar said I'm overwhelmed. But listen, my word is my word. I have given somebody my contract. And he has made some indications he's interested in my daughter, I have to go back. If he chooses to continue, then well, that's what he's meant for us. He goes immediately to the house of God, he
knocks on the door. It says over time, you would recall that you have spoken to me about my daughter and you had dropped a word in my ear that when she grows up and you have a son and we could look at some prospect etc. Now in the interim, I have received a proposal from Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. I need to have issues cleared. A Muslims word is his honor. A Muslims word is his honor. All Muslim businessmen or Muslim tradesmen, Allah has given you a very, very daunting challenge and proportionate to your challenge is your reward. Remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the Hadith is in Muscat. If you die while you acquire it in the sciences of Islam, your rank is
one below the prophets. But if you die is an understatement. You're not below the prophets, you would the prophets. There must be a reason for this. A third year of pseudo man Nabina was the death in my word is binding. We made an agreement. Imagine if that become our character. And we honest and we transparent, and we go and let me tell you, this is the beauty part of it all. When you are honest, and you're transparent, that itself is an attraction, and you'll never be deprived of the good. Was Abubakar deprived, Mohammed says his son in law. No, not at all. Not at all. Multimedia. As he said, I appreciate your honesty and integrity really that's marveling? That's awesome. But I
see now this
Mohammed Sasson has come up with a new faith and a creed. And you are following this faith also. So I really don't know what will be the future of my son if he was your daughter. And I'm afraid that he might forsake the creed of his ancestors. So for the preservation of the culture and the faith of my son, we openly declined and we now have no contract in place. Abubakar delana said there is fine now I know I can consciously go forward without a guilt in my heart that I have betrayed a man with whom I had some verbal agreement Subhan Allah, this is our character. That is why one person said it is in no koosh meaning in paper, we have to translate it into new foods, we have to internalize it,
then we will able to display the beauty of Islam.
When you look at the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam when he exhorted himself in acts of worship, immediately the Quran would come and rescue him by way of example number one, he would perform lengthy prayer when he would perform lengthy prayer Allah in the Quran, manzana Allah and alita store in London kurata Lima yaksha Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam we have not reviewed the Quran to burden you so he would, he would perform lengthy prayers. His blessing feet would swell he would engage in lengthy prayer. Allah said O Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam with moderation engage in pay premium, then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would exert himself for the guidance of mankind, to the
extent as easy as easy Milledgeville. The Hadith says he would cry and Sahaba says the sound that would emit from his blessed bosom was like that of a boiling kettle. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala rescued him and Allah said, la la cabeza en f Sokka, Allah.
camino de esa O Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Let it not be in your passion for the guidance of mankind, that you destroy yourself. Then one woman sent her son and said as the prophet SAW some for his blessing God so the prophets Allah Some said for the moment I only have what I'm wearing. When I have another garb I will give it to you think for a moment. How can you and I go to sleep
That is why I often quote the words of always corny Rama to Lani. Every evening before the sun used to set on the western horizon. He used to say Allahumma mammoth, a Jew and Fela to be Allah, I have the surplus food in my house, I am giving it in charity, whoever dies across the globe out of hunger, don't hold me liable, my Lord, there is nothing in this house Other than that, which is in my belly.
And whatever excess clothing he had, he would give it in charity every evening. And he would say, oh my lord, whoever dies without shelter, don't hold me liable for it. I don't have anything other than that which I have cleared my body. Imagine you and I who have access and access. That is why somebody sent Abdullah Abner Omar the Allahu anhu, a herb for indigestion. Somebody gave up the leidner Omar and he said this is very good for digestion. You know, you have ended up having a problem with your digestive system, reflux and all those related problems. This is very good. Abdullayev. Now Omar said, I don't ever eat too. My belly is full. What am I going to digest?
I don't ever eat to my bellies full. What am I going to give it to those people who indulge in eating? Maybe they have a better need for it. Maybe they have a better need for you. You and I I know when I packed my toiletry bag that Nexium, Gaviscon and all the related tablets unfortunately are there before anything. What how would we face Allah Who is cudney said Allah whoever dies across the globe. Don't hold me liable, my Lord, I don't own but what I cleared myself with and I don't have food but that which is in my belly.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam walks into the garden orchard of a Sahaba he picks up a date he starts eating at a beloved number is worth the prophet SAW Some said even aroma join me and he he said lush, the hero pseudo prophet of Allah I don't have any inclination is that even an omen for you? It's a matter of inclination or otherwise for me four days have elapsed. Nothing edible has entered the belly of your baby. Anyway, a woman sends her son bring the shirt and bring the blessing garb of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He said I don't have anything but what I'm wearing today. I have more I'll give it to you. She comes back and he says my mom says give me what you wear him.
My mom says give me what you're wearing. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very modest, very bashful, went in the room to get out gave it he shut the door stayed there. This brother takes it the woman was very happy and overwhelmed to hold the blessing garb of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it is the time of prayer. He cannot come outside belong to the lawn or knocks on the door. He explains that I really don't have anything there's a woman who sent her son persisted on my god and I couldn't refuse and refute Sahaba and provide Allah reveals the verse. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Tabasco Hakuna Matata, maluma masura Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Do not
be over extravagant, and do not withhold in its entirety, but strike the balance and maintain moderation. I can go on and on quoting how Islam exhorted him to moderation. My point is as follows and please focus on my pattern of thoughts. When it comes to the aspect of character displaying character. He displayed such amazing character, people talk of presidential pardon. It's an insult to align presidential pattern with the pattern and the clemency of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But he displayed such character never did Allah, Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam display character with moderation. Allah said you're doing a good job, keep it going. It's character that
will bring people to the beauty of Islam. In everything else, Allah said strike the balance. We're in Nicolette Allah who can have him. we confer the accolade of nobility of conduct upon you. Now, let's unpack this year. And let's look at how he interacted. And what was the character that he displayed that brought the people to Islam, the likes of Abu sufian, who spearheaded who spearheaded every anti Islamic campaign, right till moments and days before the death of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the conquest of Mecca. Even this man finds the need and finds amnesty in the beautiful faith and the teachings of Islam. It's a matter of you and I imbibing the character we are dealing
in the process. Number one, let's look at the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when it came to the seniors in the community.
Sahaba say we were sitting with him. Suddenly an elderly woman walks in. He stands up in her respect and her all and he says that's my mum coming that's my mum come in.
There was a moment of silence with Sahaba because all knew his mum was laid. Buster Paula herida, who he spread his blessings shawl
He stood up he cleared the passage he ushered her in. He sat her down Sahaba all in confusion, one nudges another mother, biological Foster, what are we talking nothing done. When he leaves a prophet of Allah, don't we know that your mom is late in botany, this woman nursed me she circled me. And because of that I have elevated to her to the position of my mother. Imagine he's in his prime, he's at his glory is at the point of profit would there are 1000s that gather and converge around him? Yet he is not oblivious of the woman that circled him while he was an infant. Okay, that was the woman who circled him. year comes the real challenge, who can display character to his servant who
can display character to his father servant Berkut bien de la Berkut bien de la. This was a woman who was the slave girl of assassins father Abdullah the alone. The Prophet says his father passed away at the tender age of 18 is buried in Madina munawwara assassins mother Amina enemy sallallahu wasallam and the slave girl, who then came into the custody of Amina de la Mancha. They go to Medina to visit the grave of Nabi sallallahu, wasallam his father. After pain they respected the grave they return in Berkut, the slave girl who was previously the father now the mother slave girl, the reason allottee was Selim and Amina the Allahu Allah. When they came to a place called a Baba, we go to
Macau often. Recently, when I was there with the grace of Allah, I consciously tried to run my thoughts, and I even asked the driver if he could take us into the desert. But obviously there was a bit of restriction and protocol and bureaucracy so we were unable to access the precise location. But then the less you would find a Buddha on the road as you are traveling between Medina and Mecca. Imagine for a moment and turn the pages of history and reflect my brother and reflect my sister. They had left Medina, Mohammed says him is no more than six years. The world awaits this person's arrival. At the point his father is laid before his birth, that they come to this sensitive location
between Mecca and Medina called Abuja and the decision of Allah is that Amina the alarm on Hamas pass away at that point.
I would have thought in my foolishness, you would have thought in your native understanding, it would have been greater and better if Allah told Amina tell maka, maka, Rama settle the infant, settle the young lead into his familiar environment, get him back into the rhythm of life, and then gradually take Amina but one great lesson was put down one principle was established woman could you bet money to be in Felisa movie or the ncwa whoever's death has been decreed on any land he or she will not die elsewhere. If Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam his mother can pass away. scholars say this was the first death Nobody said it was some observed in his life. Can you imagine it's a mountainous
terrain, it's a desert land, his dad is laid, his mom passes away. He's at the mercy of a slave girl. And this man's future, this man's destiny, this man what's coming ahead, the entire world is awaiting him. He's gonna brighten up the great the world. Muslims and non Muslims have agreed and concurrently conceded to the fact that amongst the greatest of people that have influenced the world, they can be no doubt that the first the first out of them all, and the greatest out of them all remains and will remain is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this woman Berkut now comes into the custody of Nabi sallallahu, wasallam. As he grows up, she's now become the slave girl maybe
saw some inheritance as part of the inheritance and the legacy he then liberates. What does he do first he elaborates. She gets married to a person by the name of obeyed, obeyed. And from that wedlock Allah blesses them with a union in from that union and that wedlock, Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses them with a girl by the name of Amen, amen. They after that marriage is dissolved, and then she gets married to Osama zedi Allahu anhu. And from that union, Allah blesses them with Osama the Allahu anhu. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say, after my mother, if there's any woman, I will give respect, honor and recognition. Then it is the slave girl of my father, mother
and me. He used to refer to her and say, Oh, me back there. Oh, me, a mother after my mother, Amina a mother. I'm saying to you, those of us that have servants in our home, how do I speak to my servant, leave my child, if I have some discipline and degree of respect, remember, the crisis in the life of that individual will keep him there.
Because he needs a job, but your child's tongue will become rotten, you will spoil in your spirit. He won't leave because of your hostility and aggression. But you have marred the image of Islam. One of the great scholars from our country recently passed away an amazing fact in his life and amazing effect in his life. All the domestic servants that were in his employment, every one of them accepted Islam because of his character.
Every domestic servant under his employment, was just impressed. When it was inquired what was so outstanding about his character, he would often reduce the burden without decreasing the salary. He would often reduce the burden you had a long day you had a tired day, have a break and go and you know what, just have a half a day how many times I want to half a day do I think that others want to half a day? I want to grow the economic ladder. Don't you think those working for me also want to climb the economic ladder? Or is it that I exploit them and I thrive upon them to climb? That's not the teachings of Islam. In fact, I say the respect the professors have afforded to his slave girl.
If the Muslim of today you can afford that to his biological mother, that the the the the tale of the soma will be different, the tale of the soma will be different. I share with you one two couplets in this regard. Regarding the rank of a mother. The prophet SAW some elevated the slave go to that of a mother. The tale is as follows. Have patience within the hubiera Malala has made mention of it in El Caballero it's very thought provoking and stimulating couplets. There'll be poet says Leo myka Hakuna Takeru Cassie Rocha holiday

I share with you another incident amazing Muhammad Hasan Rahmatullah. Allah says, I used to go visit my point of focus is, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam treated his slave girl as a mother. And not only a slave girl, his father's slave girl, his mother's slave girl, character is the way we can go forward. And that's the only way we can bring some goodness. Someone said very beautifully. We are more worried about our reputation than our character. Our reputation is merely what people think we are, while character is what we
We are more what you've done is my reputation. You've soiled my reputation. What's your reputation? reputation is an image it's a perception. reputation is what people think we are. character is what we are. character is what we are. We have to be the the the building blocks of our faith, our character, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said bow to me Mama caramel allowed. I have been sent with the teachings to perfect character. Anyway, Mohammed says I used to go visit Bishop Rama to lolly in his young days. One day I went to the house his sister said to me, I she used to spank some wool, and she used to nut she said to me take this and go and sell it.
Take this and go and sell it.
So anyway, she said, I asked what must I do with it? He said sell it and the money you get go and buy some fish. So I took the wool that she spun, I went and sold it. I bought some fish and I brought it home and I gave it to the sister of Vishal Rama Talalay. She prepared a beautiful delicious meal of fish. We said Bishop Rama toolani came home that night. He sat down he seen his sister prepared his you know, a levee spread and it was laid out very beautifully. So he asked what was the motivation of cooking fish? Now listen to this. I said oh my sister last night. Oh my brother last night I seen our mother in a dream who had passed away. And my mother said to me in the
dream and division, if you want to bring happiness to me then sell that which you have made and sold and use that money to buy fish because my son your brother hasn't eaten fish for a long time.
So when bass Rahmatullah hurt does he was moved to tears. He said, Rahim Allah,
May Allah showing his choices, blessings on my mother, she took care of me when she was alive and she arranged for me from her grave. She arranged for me from her grave one last incident and we move on to another aspect in the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in Makarem Allah Allah, the book of dunya on page 187 there is an incident mentioned there of a person by the name of
a delegation came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He asked from them, was there a woman by the name of Allah from your tribe? They said, Yes, he said, Do you know the tale of this woman? Haha we said we don't know. He said in the LA holla agenda Bill rihani valida t ha ha musharaka Allah cause the entry of this woman into paradise because of our dutiful she was to her mother. Notwithstanding that her mother was a disbeliever. Her mother was a disbeliever. Yet she was loyal and faithful to her mother. Because of that Allah caused her entry into gender. It's as follows the narration is mentioned that over here, ah ha ha, ha ha ha ha. The entire locality was invaded. And Ouattara Guha,
Omaha, she and her mother was left behind. So what did she do? She carried her mother on her back literally carried her mother. Today, you think you know what, financially? I'm carrying my parents. How can you ever carry your parents? That is why one brother said. He said I learned a brilliant thing from a non Muslim men. I said, What is it? He said one day I met him we were schooling together. I said your parents stay with you from all the siblings. So he rephrase that? He said, No, I stay with my parents. I stay with my parents. In other words, how can I claim to say I'm doing them a favor? The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said ohira ha ha ha Taku ha Omaha? What did she do?
She carried her mother and she walked in the desert. When her feet would burn she would sit down and she would place her mother on her lap. She would place her mother on her lap.
Phase Africa mama brothers. Let's keep focus please. Let's keep focus. Let's persevere slightly. We all are feeling the heat. Let's just keep focusing
Allah will try and wrap up not too long.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said she said, and she would carry her mother on the lap, keeping her mother on her lap when the mother would relax, and somehow the mother would have a degree of comfort, then she would resume the journey and she would continue. And that's not all. When the mother would set she would then crouch over the mother creating a human shield. aterna Jetta until finally she brought safety and shelter to the mother, father Holla Holla, who has the agenda agenda bizarrely, because of that Allah subhanho wa Taala caused her entry into gender, and they are beautiful couplets that one of the people of their Charlene had even sang.

Why literally Europe bencher de del puja to impress Allah. What does the forum in Nigeria he been? One person came to the live now Bertha the Alanna the narration is in a double move. He said, I propose to a woman and she refused my proposal, and another man proposal and she accepted it. And in a fit of rage and my passion and my obsession over this woman. I couldn't contain myself, and I lost myself and I hit this man, and I kill this man. And I terribly regret
what I have done. But it was my infatuation over this woman she denied me she got married to someone else, and I couldn't contain myself and I fell in this is what I did. Can I atone for my wrong is the expiation is the atonement, what are my options on the table? In addition to asking Allah for forgiveness of the light now bus Rolando said is your mama life? He said, No, my mom has passed away. He said, Okay, well then go see whatever you can do and try and do it. Anyway, he left from there. The narrator said I was listening to the whole thing I asked him to live now buzz. Why did you ask the man if his mom was alive? He said because my Alamo ama landfill Islami acabo in Allahu
taala mean Burrell valida. I don't know of any action, as that can secure your forgiveness more rapidly and instantly, and elevate your profile in the eyes of Allah more quickly than serving your mother. And I thought to help this man out of his crisis, the quickest the easiest way he was deciem. Anyway, that's one angle, like I said, reflect over the character of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. You know, in Arabic, they say something very beautifully. And this is what we need to take today. When you have love for someone, when you have affection for someone, then affection demands, affection demands that you consider everything of Your Beloved to be great.
affection demands, anything and everything from your beloved to be great. And whatever you give your beloved even if it's great, you perceive it to be trivial. This is this is Muhammad. Al Maha Beto is the color noodle cafe, enough sake, what is thick therell khaleel mean Habibi. So by way of example, by way of example,
one person came back into the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. The prophet SAW some gave him a date. It said allows the date won't help me much. He went away. Another person came, he begged me saw some gave him a date. He said, Subhan Allah tomorrow, two Min rasulillah one date from Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. That for me is enough. Because you know, the burqa and the blessings in that day is greater than anything and everything you can have
one date, he said a lot of money has he tomorrow Tomorrow, but I would love what this date. The Sahaba said he barely took that date. And that men became one of the wealthiest businessmen that Medina has ever seen. from Allah before Raja and he stogner from Allah before it that's why in Arabic, they say what kalila mean? kya Faena, waka De Luca Luca Luca Li Lu waka Lila mean cake Faena Oh my parents, oh, my beloved Oh, my senior a little from you is enough. And honestly, it's an insult to call anything of yours little
Honestly, it's an insult to call anything of yours later. Now let's flip the coin. And let's see how the profitsystem dealt with juniors. We have children in the community. We have children in the society. We have children attending our functions. The narration is in Muslim Sharif saladna sobre la narrated, the profitsystem is seated in the Sahaba around him. It's a prominent gathering high profile, people like Abu Bakr, Omar and others,
present at the gathering. And then a vessel in which a drink was was presented to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Now the teachings of Islam is you come in from the right and you rotate the vessel. That's the teachings of Islam, who Allah said he or she off but it so happened on the left side was Abu Bakr and Omar Delano. And on the young side was this young lead. Now one way was to violate the pattern and start from the left but that's not right, because the teachings of Islam from the right The other way is to start from the right and ignore the little boy he's a lead is a small boy, we don't have to worry about him and go straight to the seniors. But the teachings of
Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam has the fine balance in place. It has the delicate balance in place. He is aware of the presence of the seniors cognizant of this young boy, how does he strike the balance? He asks permission from this young boy? Yahweh Allah, Tasha Bulli and a steer hula, oh, my young boy, if you allow me because by the teachings, you are sitting on the right and after I drink the vessel comes to you, with your consent subject to your permission, could I please pass the vessel directly to Abu Bakr and Omar? A boy is a boy a child is a child whether is the child of a prophet or anyone else? No, no, no Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I won't give that uncle, he must
These are the words of the Muslim Sharif la, la. No. Nobody says him didn't yell out. What's the manners? What do you do your father in teach you?
What was Sahaba? And I'm reminded of another incident. The profitsystem is sitting with the Sahaba he has a quiz often used to have a quiz just to break the eyes. And you know unite the hearts and learn and teach is that there is a three it resembles the believer. Come go for it boys. What's the answer? Now human nature when somebody asks you a question, you think of the complex answer.
You don't think of the simple answer. So somebody said, We stir our sugar clockwise. Why do this nationality state anti clockwise to dissolve the sugar?
Nothing more. But now you think of a scientific or traditional or some other thing? Generally we think of the most complex answers we don't think of the simple basic answers.
So people started running their mind for water and nurse officials are in Berea.
I was in Mauritius last week. And then one of my students took me to a madressa and he said shall please address these young children. And this hadith came in my mind and I shared it with them.
Everybody applied their mind and their and their thoughts. No answer coming. Nobody saw some said the reference is the date palm, the date palm and your I draw your analogy to anyone who is in the field of teaching. One important principle we learn from the Quran. It's a bit philosophical, but I'll simplify myself. Whenever number one to give examples. This is a science of the Quran, what he can do not durable harlyn suwama Yaki loja
de mon what till
gnabry boo holliness these are the parables and the examples. So to give me examples, it's one of the sciences of the Quran. The Quran repeatedly kashia de Ratan methadone, Latina cafaro Baraka him amerihome Koroma, but one beauty of the Quran is whenever it's cited an example, it gave something from the environment of its audience
are relevant so that they could relate to it. When Allah spoke about the moon, the waxing and the waning of the moon, if you study astronomy, you will understand terminologies. Allah said hattah can reduce Neil Kadeem, hatha Cal Joe Neil khadim unpack this word and understand the beauty and the profoundness of the Arabic language, as the waxing and the waning of the moon happens. You know, it's a sad reality we only become cognizant of the month and the sighting and the progress when it is the month of Ramadan. Whereas our calendar is with the lunar calendar, and it's our duty to follow the month and the cycle throughout the year. So Allah says, as the
Moon becomes thin and weak, it becomes like the branch of an old branch of a date bomb. Allah uses that phrase, when Allah told the Sahaba reflect on the greatness of align his creation. Allah said of Allah and llorona ll a BDK for holy look at the camel, whereas every animal gives the greatness of Allah but the camel was that animal that was in the in front of every Arab. So wherever the Quran cites example, so it becomes easy for the audience to relate to. So the Prophet system said, which is that three that is comes from similar to the human. They said, No, we don't know that he said, it's your age bomb. And then he explained the similarity. You know, it bears fruit all the time a
believer gives off good all the time, even even its waste metal is used in good things. Everything of a believer is generated into good, and the scholars have greatly created the tie and the link and the equation. Story over gathering disperse. Everybody goes home, part of the dinner table, Abdullah Omar and Amara de Allahumma gachet him. So the son tells the father Omar dead when the beast has asked the question for your information. I knew the answer.
So Omar said my son, but this is not the time to tell me. You know, if you had to answer in front of Abu Bakar, the pride and the honor of your dad would have no no bounds. That my boy and from this we learn that the pride of your child even Sahaba were not exempted from it. My mom always says And may Allah preserve her and reward her. There is no joy, like the joy of a child and there is no pain like the pain of a child. When it hits the pain. It's the highest pain. One day I was carrying my son's one on the back, one on the right and the left and I'm walking and my hands were aching. And I remember the scholar he said to me share your hands up pain and I said well you can see for
yourself. He said better your hands ache then your heart aches. Better your hands ache as yours move on. They they stab in the hearts of parents today. We know it has it has brought gloom and doom to the world. The very sweet child grows up to become a monster and you wonder when did this happen?
So what did I do? Like now? I'm gonna say, Omar said Why didn't you answer in front of everyone? He said dead. Respect compelled me to be silent in a gathering when Abu Bakar was present.
As much as I knew the answer, I couldn't muster the courage to open my lips or lift my gaze, or de articulate or dare suggest or hint or insinuate when I looked in a scene abubaker respect government controlled me kept me down. Omar was silent and he accepted that verdict. That was it respect. So anyway, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam boy
then Lee what was his character? He didn't minus that boy, he never ever in his entire life, demoralized one human being or one creature you and I can do more allies anyone and everyone and remember psychologically when you do moralize a person you create negativity in his heart and his mind you create a negative wiring in his body and he becomes a victim to that repeated negativity that you you you you hurl towards him. The boy refuses the visa some is fine. fettle. Ahora su licensing fee the visa some takes the vessel he honest the boy respects the sentiments gives it to him in his hand with a smile, not snobbish not say you know harsh not abrupt learn manners. What's
your father's name? gives it to him that his the teachings and the beauty of Islam. Today, unfortunately, you know, sometimes when the children make a noise in the masjid, can we say
you know, adults make a noise or adults are chatting and the gossiping. Can we say you know, we can't understand these adults. If it was children, we can still understand. But when it's children we don't understand.
When adults do things like children, we said, you know, how can adults do this? If it says boy, I can still identify my point and my messages and I'm not digressing I'm, I'm throwing before you multiple scenarios in every human life. I touched briefly so that I could touch on various aspects, the Prophet sallallaahu essence teaching with fellow non Muslims in the most hostile of climate, but how it paves the way to the beauty of Islam. We spoke about Abubakar the olana honor in His Word with a fellow non Muslim. We then spoke about the aspect of nationalism respecting the seniors of his community, those that will literally his parents, those that were his foster mother, or that
woman who was a slave and he elevated and that is why the Sahaba the scholars say the Prophet sallallahu wasallam summarized his 23 years of life in two words. amongst his salient features was comprehensive speech. He said himself
Oh t to Java ME, I'll kill him. Allah has favored me with comprehensive speech so he could say great things into words. And what was his last words? He said a Salah to Mr. Malik at Amer nukem and he passed away. Fear Allah with regards to prayer and fear Allah with regards to how you deal with your subjects and your subordinates. And that was his last words and he passed away. scholars say if you unpack this prayer is the most important in all your obligations to your Creator. So this was any hint to all the rights you owe to Allah and kindness to your servants was any hint to all the obligations you owe to fellow humans, and he singled out subjects because that is where you have
authority. And if you can feel a law where you have authority, you will feel a law where you don't have authority. So that was a summary of his entire life. Whenever the fruit of a new season came, the prophet SAW some used to pray Allahumma barik leongatha Marina Baraka Nafisa, Burkina Medina, and then he would call the youngest child, if there was someone in the gathering and if the children were playing outside, it would say call that young boy, the child will commence with the fruit of the new season. I'm saying there was a delicate balance. There was a fine line in which everybody was given time and recognition to such an extent there is a hurried memory of NASA Ilana one day
said, I came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and I said oh prophet of Allah, Maha buenas LA, who loves you the mo who is most beloved to you. Now listen to this and look at how the scholars are is who is most beloved to you. So obviously, this was a serious question, and it had academic implications. Maybe salon Allison said Ayesha is most beloved to me. He then said meaner regional, from amongst the men who is closest to you that we saw some said, the father of Ayesha and that is Abubakar. But the scholars say, what was the motivation of this man to ask the question? It was his perception that he was the most beloved because of the character of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam?
The answer had to be given which was the true answer. And you couldn't appease him by saying you are the most beloved to me, because the truth is the truth. And we can tamper with the truth. But the scholars say study the motivation. If you know you're not in the good books, you're not going to go and try your luck and say, who's the who's most beloved to you? You're not going to try your luck, you will only muster the courage to ask that question if you have a perception, and I have three sons, and I know and you have a classroom of 20 everyone what you like him more, you like her more, you take his spot, and Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam could impress 124,000 everyone believing Allah
loves me the most. So there was something to do with his character.
Another amazing aspect in his life, and we often fall to you. And this in particular with our spouses, when it comes to addressing our spouses. It's It's It's a challenging issue, we have interaction,
we have to admonish we have to discipline whatever the dynamics are. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to use a hint, an indication to minimize the impact of the the chastisement. So instead of being explicit and emphatic to make it mild in English, they use the word euphemism, euphemism if you studied it's of Greek origin, what it means to use something that is more subtle, and not explicit, versus something that is emphatic and objectionable. So you come across in a more toned way, in a more mild way. This was the teachings and modern day civilization say that you know, communication warrants that you must be sensitive to the temperament of your audience. This is all
flowery language, and they talk about all these things. But look at the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whenever he wanted to address something, he would use a roundabout approach, ma burn a cover. I mean, why are some people saying things like this, he will make an address so that no person feels the DIRECT address, yet he gets the message and makes the necessary reformations. mmabatho emilian.
Lee has Allah como una de la Yup. Some people came and they asked Sharia law, what were his practices? And they said he she said that he eats also he sleeps, he shares the bed and he falls. So they felt Oh, we thought you're going to tell us whole night he worships and he never eats and that and in their thoughts, there was the perception by their body language, that they didn't feel it to be all that great. Then they said maybe because he's a prophet. He doesn't have to exert his entire night in worship. So when the prophet SAW some came back, she bounced the sentiments of those people people came, they asked me what you do by night. I told them you sleep and you pray. They asked me
what you do by day. I say you eat and you fast, just depends.
So they said, Okay, that's for him. But for me, I'm going to fast for the rest of my life. For me, I'm not going to I'm going to worship Allah for the entire night. And me I will do this year, the professor hasn't got very angry. And he said, Are you thinking you can be more pious than me? Remember, nobody can feel a lot more than me. Voila, here, la Anusha, Camilla, and following my pattern is fear in Allah. And then he said, Why do people make these comments? The point I'm saying is subtle approach. Year is a beautiful example. You know, we need the broad shoulders and the thick skin and the intellectual mind to defuse situations at home and not infuse it. And unfortunately,
today, we've become masters in infusing things. We just just know how to create, provoke ignite and spark an argument, but we don't have what it takes. We don't have what it takes to defuse the situation. I'm reminded that will digress let me share this incident with you rather first. The incident is very long, it comes in Bukhari, Sharif, etc. It comes in the Quran in surah terrain, where the Prophet sallallahu wasallam used to make his regular visits daily to all his honorable spouses. This was just a passing visit after Arthur, in addition to where he would spend the night at just a walk in greeting, if they all are fine and all is okay. Every wife wanted to maximize the
state, which is great and meritorious. But if it happens at the cost of compromising his stay elsewhere, then Islam is not in harmony with that. We need to this is the balance. I can be very kind to you, my brother. But if I'm holding up the traffic at the back, Islam doesn't welcome that kindness. Islam doesn't welcome that kindness. I am giving you away here but I'm holding people at the back. If If I can cause ease for others at the cost of difficulty on myself. That's the beauty. That's the character. That's what we have to do. But I inconvenience others to bring comfort to someone else. We've lost. We've lost the idea we've missed the idea.
So zenobia Lama and his honorable spouse, she would every day say Can I can I prepare you some honey quickly? like okay, prepay on the time to leave. And then he has it because he was very bashful. He couldn't say no. For us. It's difficult to understand because we like it. We can blatantly say no, and we say more than No.
You know, one day I seen a brother coming in, he was paralyzed or cripple and he was begging. And this brother was so harsh. He said the next time you beg outbreak your other leg. Wallah, it hit me so hard. I said my brother in law can turn the tables. Allah can reverse things so instantly, and we've seen it happening. It's not unheard of. We've seen it happening with the credit crunch that came biting through the economy, was it not people that were running big shots and big firms today are looking for a job and sleeping on the road. That's just a simple, common example we can identify with, but many things have happened and we've seen it with the naked eye. So the Prophet says and
said, Okay, I'll have your honey, he would sip the honey. This would cause delay because the time between acid and McGreevy short. So now his time at the one spouse is compromised, his time with the other spouse is compromised. Now between the spouses, there were two groups This is quite clear in the Hadith, that I shall have sorry, Alanna was one group, there was another group, it was the balance and the maturity of a Navy that could could pay it and move it and carry on. And the wisdom amongst many other wisdom was that these woman came from different tribes. So every one of them could narrate his personal private life to their tribes, thereby become a source of guidance. So
remember this, these marriages were not motivated by lust and other things. This was the divine planning of Allah subhanho wa Taala to preserve his internal bedroom life also to the to the world, and there is no human in history. If you open the book of Hadith, the scholars have a section debate in how many strands of white hair was on his head, the day he passed away, even this has been debated.
Leave everything else, how many strands of white hair on the blesser the head of mine the basis of the day he passed away, there is a narration of 19 there is a narration of 20 strands is a narration of 21 strength and then the Sahaba the scholars of how do they reconcile the three verdicts? I am saying to that minute is detail, no humans life has been preserved but Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam there is a another topic which I have spoken about is that one scholar has explained how Allah has spoken about every limb of the Prophet system in the Quran. I just run you through briefly. Number one, Allah says Abba savato Well,
when did the prophet SAW some frown? So Allah spoke about the frown of him in the Quran. Then when he used to look to the heavens in anticipation of Revelation, Allah said today in our article Baba Ji Kofi sama we
See your glances to the heavens. So Allah spoke about his face in the Quran. Then Allah said Voila. Then in a llama Mata gonna be don't stretch an envious eye to the glamour and the embellishments of this world. So Allah spoke about his eyes in the Quran. Then Allah tala said fine. Yes sir. Now
we've made the Quran easy on your tongue. So Allah spoke about his blessing tongue. Then Allah says Allah.
Allah. Don't tie your hands to your neck. So then Allah spoke about his neck, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala said, lm nasura halakhah sadara Have I not open your bosom? So Allah spoke about his bosom, what da and COVID rock and we've removed the burden and levy and Casa de Herat, which had burden your back so Allah spoke about his back then Allah said Who are your caffeine spoon? I'm watching you when you stand in what the Kaluga coffee surgeon and I equally watch you while you are prostrating then Allah Allah said for in Aqaba, uni na O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you are constantly in my eyes. This mufa sillian say there is no nebby whose limbs and organs enjoy
detail mentioned in the Quran but Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
such as the profoundness of our Navy, such as the caliber anyway, the prophets Allah these two groups in amongst the spouses, they Ayesha and hopsital delana said we got to do something with this everyday honey, honey, honey doesn't work like this. Yeah, you know, we need to do something. So they they literally with respect to our mothers, we have the greatest of respect and regard. And we only restrict ourselves to the context of the Hadith as the Hadith tells us, they plot amongst themselves. And they say,
and I don't have to tell you, when woman plot to convince a man. So like, you come back home from work, and you're tired, and you're exhausted, and she's all dressed up where you have to be going to the mall, I'm tired, and I just want to drop and pass out and you drop on your bed. And in 15 minutes you're in that car driving to the mall.
And when and how and who and what only Allah knows. 15 minutes. How did she was it a spell? Was it a spell, but you are up with a moody and bloated and pulled up lemon face or smiling whatever it is, but you go in anyway, they plan this whole thing again, the character, we spoke about snippets if my time would have permitted I would have gone into more dimensions, more dimensions of the life. My aim my message, my words, my my exhortation is, we have to go back to the noble life of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And we have to read it, study it, internalize it and executed then only we are making a step. And really like the Arabic poet said, you rather be you rather be like a rabbit on
the correct path. Or like then a deer on the wrong path.
Or like a tortoise, how you don't live in southern a akuna cassada Fetty 330 till happy, it is better for a human to be a tortoise on the right road than a deer on the wrong road. You know, we go off and hunting three weeks ago we went hunting also there's a very good brother in South Africa that takes us and you see how these spring back. And you see how these gears and you see how these antelopes, you see how they run. And if one run the herd runs, and they run and run and run, you better off walking the pace of a tortoise on the right road, then running the pace of a deer on the wrong road. Everything must be quick today. And unfortunately we run in the wrong direction. One day
we are going into traffic my son was very small and it's completely congested. The opposite lane obviously is fine. So he's like Dad, why don't we just go with that site, my son we going this way.
We could go on that side. That's brilliant, but we're not in the direction and will flow there's no traffic. We rather move an inch and we'll get to our destination. So I hope you pick up some points even if you take one and you internalize it, him as he his relation to his seniors to his juniors or as we discussing to his spouses
on the lighter side they say you know English grammar, you have
one mouse many mice one spouse many spice
as it is they say you got to spice up the relation. Those are the terminologies that they use. You got to spice up the relation.
Someone was telling me about this, you know, you get this oxymoron where this contradiction, sweet, sour, deafening silence. And then what they say fully empty, pretty ugly, act naturally act naturally. And the mother of them all happily married.
deafening silence. That's deafening silence. sweet, sour, pretty ugly,
fully empty, say but the best of them all happily married.
So your comes the, the two spouses utmost respect and regard, they say we're going to put a plot together. When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam comes home tomorrow from them, you just maintain one thing will tell him that with respect, we're getting a bit of a foul smell from your mouth. Oh, nice, awesome. And it was very sensitive to foul smells. So obviously they knew which button to press.
The prophet SAW some was very, very sensitive. He was very sensitive. And he said, Don't give me raw garlic. And he said, Whoever eats raw garlic, don't come to my mistake, final mela, etc. as damning as damage will ensue. Well, Jamie, that is why the scholars say no human no human has benefited humanity in its entirety like Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. He said that raw garlic gives off an offensive smell and you have been insensitive to the presence of the angels. please learn to respect angels as well.
He displayed regard for the angels. He said don't urinate in this end the holes that pour into a thing has floods
and it's a hot shower.
He was cognizant of the end. He said don't offend the melodica.
Water wholesome life he came. That is why it's very ironical. That Surah
Surah MBR is the chapter on prophets. And Allah is going out in description one after the other. Ibrahim was like this I don't have the time Allah is salam, and Tao It was like this Allah in His Salaam and details detail. You would have thought when the topic is profits, the chapter is profit. The discussion is the profits. The profit that will enjoy the lengthiest explanation will be Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, but to the contrary, Allah introduces nimbyism in the concluding verses of the chapter on prophets. And Allah only introduces him with one verse, a primary Salam two pages that would la ceram old one page nooelec ceram one page Maria Maria ceram have a page going on is my
Idris I don't have time, Mohammed Sawsan, the galaxy of the prophets, the cream of prophethood, the paragon of Allah's creation, he gets one line and what does Allah say on
rough metal me and Mohammed sallallahu wasallam suffice to say for your accolade, your presence your appearance benefited every atom every Iota every creature on every planet
every creature every atom benefited from your coming and today you and I or did this formula leave those that are hoarding the coke coke formula and hoarding this and he is very secretive about his suppliers and he's very you are secretive about the form you know of guidance of mankind
you are hoarding it
so anyway the next day the prophets Allah is some goes to eyeshadow the Aloha occult the McCarthy era sudo lava lava Did you even come?
Just getting a bit of foul smell? I just had honey by Xena I'm getting bearable
metafields smell nobody says some said no no nothing but honey okay one wife delete it then goes to have Salah the alarm on a viola occulta McAfee looks like you ate something and kale
now you know the first person that inouye you picked up a bit of weight? No no. What do you mean? The next day you meet a what's happening you get into all around your waist.
Now suddenly you become unconscious because two three people are driving a common and then your wife telling you about it becomes more sensitive. Now visa Some said I don't know you were telling me this year Ayesha is saying this year, I had honey. Okay.
I'm not going to have honey again. But don't tell. Zainab that I'm not going to have honey because it's going to offend her. So I won't have this because you say I mean even something else. I respect what you say. And then I won't. Don't tell her so that in this way we appease all anyway, all done. He said he won't have it. Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the verses. And Firstly, Allah subhanaw taala admonished him and said, Yeah, I wanna be Ulema to her Henry mama Allahu la cabeza de Mahabharata as the word nikolova. For Rahim, O Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Why do you make something forbidden which Allah has made lawful for you, merely to secure the happiness of your
partners, you cannot also with with that which has been made lawful and make it unlawful? If a person abstains from the lawful as a discipline, as dietary as health reason that's a separate thing, but you cannot make it forbidden when a law has made it
now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam realizes that that wife had divulge the information. The VSA lalani was telling them totally to have Sarah the Allahu Allah and told have said Don't tell anyone Don't tell anyone
told you this the fastest ways of communication
television tell a woman
and telecommunication and even faster tell her not to tell anyone.
Anyway, the point that I want to say here is how no BS has been conducted himself this is this is the critical point here. Just Just keep focus here. What a sensitive thing how did he deal you firm ism
blended about mild cut down, reduce the intensity of the chastisement. So with a sovereign EBU Isla de hi DITA Philomena de
Philomena Burnaby he call it man, I'm back. Listen to this year, he calls him Serra de la Mancha. And he says I'm just giving you the loose translation because time is against us. He says hafsa
we had agreed that that's the secret. Do we still maintain the relation or has this leaked out of minds in your discussion into someone else?
this is what he says what is a sovereign Wu when in the B confines with his wife elaborately as Virginia DITA for the man about to be here when he informs for a man to be here?
He and ally informed him
to minimize the embarrassment of his wife because she had defaulted in this contract. He didn't spell out the graphic details to her that have saw I have been told by jabril in the form of Quran led you, the daughter of Omer have taken the bold step to go to my other wife and spelt out everything when I had categorically told you not to do so. Why did you do know? The Hadith the Quran says
he touched the topic, made her realize her wrong and moved on. given her the perception He only knows so much.
He had to admonish her but while admonishing he was sensitive to her emotions. If I have to admonish someone and I know they've done a wrong and I won't say Wait, I got footage. I'll bring you cameras Wait, wait set to my brother, such I'll give you graphic details. And obviously this man is now looking for a place that he wants the earth to split. The scholars say Phelim you better be here, Tucker Roman, because of the profoundness of his character, he didn't add to the embarrassment of his wife. Although she was wrong, and the scholars say Mazel Tov will mean fentanyl calm. This has always remained the salient feature of the pious that when they discipline and they admonish, they
insinuate and hint, they are mild and bland, and they're not loud and explicit, so that they minimize the pain and the agony on the victim of the wrong. Now can you imagine then we say you know what, go for therapy go for psychology go for this year, they will teach you how to interact and give you skills that give you 10 key rules, five do's five don'ts, leave that study the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whenever you do that, you know they give you all this philosophical flowery things. Practically. This is the life that we have an Imam Shafi Ramadan he said it so beautifully. Dr. Medina madonie b No. cyclophilin Farrah D. Virgin Ebony nussey hatoful
Jama it for in nano Sabina nursey. No Minato de la is Dima Whoa, what did he say? De medini bieneusi caffeine Farah de Oh my brother. If you know how to advice and you can do it with the correct etiquettes in seclusion, then don't give me one word shower me with hours of advice with Jen nibblin Nessie Hatfield Gemma, but don't admonish me even with a letter in public. Don't admonish me with a letter in public. For in the news have been and nursey know whom minute to be here. Because advising me in public is actually ridiculous to me. It comes across in a condescending way. In a disgraceful way. You humiliating me la is Dima who my ears don't have the ability to listen. But if you have the
time and you have the maturity that is why scholars have written it
You have to discipline your child, at least let they be the interval of one prayer. So, if your child has done something wrong at the time of her, either you then ground him whatever it is, but then you want to take some action against him, then whatever measures you want to institute, let there be the interval of one prayer at the time of acid. By that time, sanity will come in no manner, it will return it will be calmness, they will be balanced, they will be vision, and then you will execute a calculated decision on the reverse. If you will be instinctive, you will harm and hurt and compound the problem. So, these are the words of Imam Shafi Rahmatullah Ali, I conclude
what one Hadith, and this is the real beauty and this is the ideal thing. May Allah make that a reality for us all? And what is that?
Let rather let me share with you these advices of say the nanny or the alarm of the incident would be very long. So I'll digress into this year and we'll wrap up on this note. This is mentioned in theory Hola, hola. On page 142 31, Hola. In somehow it would summarize my talk and remember what I said, walk in the right direction, walk at the pace of adopters, but you know you walk in the right road, you will make your mark and you will reach your goal. Five advisors of Satan alley, Terry Hola, hola, page 142. He said number one, law you have an accident in Dumbo.
People are saying I'm worried about the crime. I'm worried about the economic climate. I'm worried about the political landscape. I'm worried about the future. Satan earlier the Alon who said you can engage in these issues and understand and deliberate but you should fear nothing but the nasty consequences of your repeated sin.
So what must I sleep with? Not the fear if the currency depreciates not with the fear of crime. I'm asleep with the fear of the repercussion of my wrong, y'all. I'm doing this wrong in my life. What are the bearings on my personal life? What are the bearings on my wife and children? What are the bearings on my income? What are the implications on my generations in English they say those who come after you will be better than you or worse than you because of you.
Those who come after you will be better than you or worse than you because of you. You will set in your children what they will come. I can tell my child little while you know what, go from here. Don't look, go do your work. But the boy has to grow up. And one day he will see you know on the lighter note the boy he failed in school and he brought his report. It says dried there I brought my report and I found yours also.
There I brought my report and I found yours also. So now what can dad talk that can say you know in our days we studied dad was a delinquent himself, that was a rebel.
Those who come after you. That is why I often say to pick up or I read a brilliant code the other day.
It is very simple to become a father, yet extremely difficult to be a father.
It is very simple to become a father.
What they say children on the backseat, cause accidents and accidents on the backseat cause children.
It's very easy to become a father.
It is oh I read this in the way it hit me I said Oh Allah let this let this just descend in my heart. It is very easy to become a father, yet extremely difficult to be a father.
becoming a father and being a father. So what I often say, being a father entails more discipline to your life than your children. And more than often we're not ready to make that step to become disciplined myself. Because to be a father, it's something else becoming a father, it's easy being a father.
What do you say the nanny or the Alon who say, if if you summarize these advices and you leave on this note is great. Law is often done in Dumbo who fear nothing but the consequences of your sentence. While are your Jew Illa robber who and put your hope in
