Do we let him initiate rolling over? Jim has malaria over him.
Lesson number 267 so that's a lot.
Yeah, you have Latina amanu or you will have believed Latifah who do not raise duffer bra for a rougher and rougher is to lift something up raise high. So do not raise I, what a sweater comb your voices. A sweat is a plural of salt. And salt is voice sound. And it is said that salt is called Luma. waka Rafi was
anything that goes in the ear of the listener.
You understand? It could be meaningful words, it could be what else? Any sound that a person makes? What are the different types of sounds that people make? Okay, words, whether meaningful or nonsense words. What else? What about yawning and coughing, and sneezing? And sometimes making noise by walking, making noise by moving making noise by driving, riding an animal? Because when a person does anything sounds are produced, isn't it? So don't raise your voices, your sounds focus out in a big above the voice of the messenger. What does it mean by this?
That the volume of your voice should be less than his?
And in the presence of the messenger?
How should you be in your behavior in your demeanor in the way that you move about in the way that you talk in the way that you cough in the way that you sneeze? dental? Low? Very careful. Because if a person coughs out very loudly, if a person sneezes very loudly, shuts the door very loudly. Then what does that show? disrespect. It shows disrespect.
So letter for a sweater home focus, hold the Navy. Don't raise your voices above the voice of the messenger.
Whether you are talking to the messenger, or you're speaking to someone else before him, or you're doing something in his presence, make sure your voice does not get ahead of his voice is not higher than his volume letter for a sweater calm, focus out in Navy.
Whatever. Hello, and do not be loud Lahu to him, Bill Cole in speech. Language ahora la who bill Kohli, don't be loud to him in speech, meaning when you address him, when you speak to him. Don't be too loud, that God barleycorn liberal them, like you are loud to each other.
The way you are loud to each other the way you address one another. Don't address him in that same way. Don't call out to Him in the same way
that you have always from job and job is to be prominent in speech or in action.
That for example, a person says something such that it can be heard.
One is that a person whispers when you whisper can the other hear? Hardly. But when you speak in a normal voice can the other hear Yes. When you yell in a very loud voice? The person sitting at the end of the room can hear Yes, the person outside of the room can hear yes he can. So this is what Joe is in speech be prominent or an action? What does it mean by action? Do something publicly do something openly that the action can be seen when you do it in private in a closed room? Nobody knows. But when you do it in public on the street, everybody can see.
So Johanna is both in words. And it's also in actions. Over here what has been said? lethargy Haruna, who bilco in speech when it comes to talking to the messenger when it comes to addressing him when it comes to speaking to him when it comes to calling him. Don't call him caja de balticon. liberal, like you call one another. This has been understood in a number of ways. First of all, it has been said that this means in mahatama, meaning when you address him, when you talk to him, don't talk to him, the way you talk to others.
How do people talk to one another, their friends, their family members, those who are younger than them? How?
casually in a very frank manner
Isn't it? Sometimes they disregard what the other has said, sometimes make fun of what the other has said. Right? So don't speak to him, the way you speak to others. The way you speak to the messenger should be in a very respectful way, should be in a very respectful way. Why? Because he is the Messenger of Allah, He is your leader, he is your teacher. And when you speak to someone who is older than you, then you must speak how with respect. So let the Jihad Allah who will holy caja barleycorn liberal?
Similarly, this includes that, you know, sometimes a person called us a person asks us to do something, and we respond to them. Why should I do it? Isn't it? somebody tells us please come here. And why?
Save the messenger calls you you can't say why. If the messenger commands you something, you don't say why. You don't say how come this is not fair? No. When he asks you when he tells you to do something, be respectful.
Another person tells you something you ignore what they say it says if they didn't say anything, you can't do that to the messenger. When he calls you. You have to respond. Yeah, are you alladhina amanu is the deebot Allah He will it was early, either the Oracle Lima, your Hakan, when he calls you to that which gives life to you. So if the messenger is telling you something, it's best for you. So you should respond in the most respectful way as well.
Secondly, letteratura, who will colic agenda?
This is also understood as that when you call him when you call him raising his attention, and how do we call other people by calling their name also, and so we take their name is Anita Maryam, can you do this auto Can you go here, right?
But when it comes to calling the messenger, you cannot call him like the way you call each other by using their names.
So the Sahaba they were not allowed to call the Prophet sallallahu Sallam by saying, Yeah, Muhammad, what were they supposed to say? You're a pseudo law,
the pseudo law or messenger of Allah?
And we see that in the Quran also. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam is he mentioned by name? Yes. But whenever he's addressed, how does the last addressing with his title with some description? Never does he address him in the Quran? by name? If anyone would call the Prophet sallallahu Sallam by name would it be Allah subhanaw taala but he teaches us that when we call the messenger that when the believers call the messenger How do they call him by mentioning his title? Not saying Yeah, Muhammad
but unfortunately there are people today will make first of all do arts the profits are a lot of data which is not right. And secondly, how do they make the writing you have
in it's surprising how sometimes you go somewhere. Yeah, Allah is written and young hammer.
And this is done out of a lot of respect. This is not respect.
If you see so many messengers have been called by name in the Quran. Yeah, yeah, no, yeah, loop. Yeah, Ibrahim. Yeah, there are so many messengers, but not even once will you find your Mohammed? Because Allah is teaching us a lesson. You don't talk to the messenger like that. You don't call him like that letter Jihad Allah who will holy caja de Barbican LIBOR?
Why? Why not? And Bertha, Armando calm or anthem letter Sharon, Lester deeds are wasted. And you don't even realize that when you disrespect the messenger, when you raise your voice above his voice, when you call him loudly, when you call him disrespectfully? This will be a means of what wastage of your deeds, and you won't even know what until you let us alone.
So what do we see that this is something very, very serious. Respect for the messenger is a means of preservation of deeds. And disrespect to the messenger in any way is a means of wastage of deeds.
Because you see, this respect is what leads to disobedience. When a person has a lot of respect for someone, then what do they do? They always obey them. But if you have the guts to call someone by name, if you have the guts to address someone in a very casual way, then tomorrow when they tell you to do something, you'll say, do it yourself. Why do I have to do it, isn't it
when a level of frankness comes then what happens? disobedience also comes
This is why respect for the messenger is of great importance. So, we see basically this is two things are being mentioned. First of all, do not raise your voices and secondly, do not be loud to the messenger in speech do not address him the way you address each other.
We learned from in a Buhari that it is reported that once a bluebottle dinar and an aroma of dinar and they were in the company of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who was receiving a delegation of Benita mean, when it I mean, the stripe had come. And there was a discussion as to who should be appointed as the leader of glutamine meaning who's going to make decisions for them.
So one of them one of who Abu Bakr and Omar octagon, who were in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they recommended a cryopen habits that appoint him as the leader.
And the other companion, he said, No, no appoint another person, as the leader.
Now what happened, this led to a dispute between Abu Bakr and or Moodle to learn. They're sitting in the presence of the prophets on the Learning Center. And what happened. One is saying, this person, the other saying, no, this person should be appointed. And they said, No, you are only saying this to contradict me. And Omar Abdullah, who said, No, I did not intend to contradict you. So basically, a dispute happened. And their voices became loud.
Because it's only natural, when people are having a dispute, they're going to raise their voices in order to be heard by the other. So what happened, these is were revealed that letter for a sweater calm, focus on the Navy door, raise your voices above the voice of the messenger, in His presence, you're not allowed to be loud, you have to speak low.
And we see that the companions, they took this so seriously, especially will buckle down on her model, they learn that it will be one of the learning he spoke softer than before, in the presence of the Prophet,
even softer than before, and remodel dinner, I knew he would speak so softly that sometimes it would be difficult to understand what he had just said.
They were so respectful with him, so respectful.
And there's another incident that we learned with regards to this ayah which is also reported in Bahati, that a companion by the name of sabet embrace the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he hadn't seen him for a few days. So he inquired about him. So a man said, Allah's Messenger, I will find out about his news, meaning I'll go check out what's happening with him. Why he's not coming.
So that man, he went to Sabbath, and he found him sitting at home with his head lowered. Why would a person sit in his house, with the doors closed, not talking to anybody, and just sitting with your head down? Why,
and you're sad when you're depressed.
So this is how you were sitting. So that man asked him, What is the matter? Savage, replied, an evil letter. And he said that he used to raise his voice above the voice of the Prophet sallallahu isn't. And he feared that his good deeds would be useless, because Allah says over here Under Armour, lucam, or anthem letters alone. So he said that he has raised his voice above the voice of the messenger, and that his good deeds would be useless, and he would be among the people of the fire.
And he was so sad about that, when he realized,
so that man went to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he conveyed Sabbath statement, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he sent that meant to him with a very beautiful reply, with a very good news, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Go back to him, and tell him this news that you are not among the people of the fire. Rather, you are among the dwellers of paradise.
It is at that savvy, they've been quiet case, he naturally had a very loud voice. You see some people, they speak low, other people, they speak loud, isn't it? Everybody has a different level of their voice, savvy, different highs, he was one of those people who would speak very loudly. And he was also a poet, he will also recite poetry. And naturally, in order to be a port, you have to speak loudly so that people can understand your words. Clearly at that time, there were no microphones. So when a person is speaking loudly most of the time, then what happens? It becomes as habit as well, isn't it? So he doesn't realize, similarly, it's quite possible that someone has some hearing
problem. And because of that, they speak loudly.
So why is that because of some genuine reason. A person speaks loudly or something that cannot be avoided.
But the other is that a person speaks loudly out of being very bold, showing that he's very confident, showing that he doesn't care who's there, showing that he doesn't fear people.
This is not great. When it comes to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam does have a we're not allowed to raise their voices. Now, it didn't mean that if the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told someone make an announcement, like remember at the Battle of her name, when all the people were running away, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told our vessel they learn to call people. So he had a very loud voice. So he started calling people. It doesn't mean he was disrespectful. No. Similarly savvy, different kinds. When he would speak loudly, it wasn't that he was disrespectful. But look at how careful the companions were, how careful they were, and how they applied every single idea to themselves. They
took it personally, that perhaps this is about me. I need to change myself. So savitha because he was given the assurance that no, this is not with regards to you, when you speak loudly, that says out of your habit or out of your natural voice. It's not out of respect. But it teaches us a very important lesson of respect for the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
Now, okay, this was with regards to the companions. What about us? Because Yeah, you're Latina amanu has been set and that includes us as well. So how are we to observe this command?
How do you think so?
When it comes to the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu Sunnah? When it comes to mercy, the NaVi when it comes to his roba, where people go and visit where people go and pray. In the mercy of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam people go and pray, how are we to speak to one another over there? How softly in a soft voice. But unfortunately, what's happening that people run over there. And it says, though, a stampede, I remember once I'd gone for Hajj, and I was waiting for the doors to be open so that you could go to the loader. And as soon as the doors opened, all the women started running, running.
And as they were running, they were pulling each other's job and somebody is falling and somebody's screaming, somebody is being pushed back. I could not understand what was going on. It seemed so disrespectful, so disrespectful, that you almost didn't want to be there.
It was embarrassing. embarrassing to witness such a scene, that this is the mustard of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
And this is where his grave is. And you're going to pray over there. And if you're going to pray over there, this is the respect that you have.
Because sometimes we think that our love for the Prophet is so great. We don't care about other people. But what do we learn in the sutra, two types of ever being taught right? One towards a line is messenger, and second towards other believers as well.
And when you are respectful to one another, that is out of respect for a lot of his message.
So when it comes to the mustard of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when a person goes there, he should be low in his voice soft in his speech.
First of all, a person should avoid talking unnecessarily. And if there is something to speak, because the moments over there, very precious, very precious, you don't have hours to be there. You don't have days to be there. You spend so much time so much money to get there and you're wasting the time showing one another, the shopping that you've done, unfortunately, so, or the deals that are out there in the marketplace. So when a person is there, he should avoid talking anyway. But if the need arises to speak, then how should he speak in a soft voice in a low voice?
How else can we apply this day?
Remember, as we learned earlier, that one is that a person is speaking loudly. Why? In order to make an announcement, in order to say something like the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also commanded the companions at certain occasions while he was there, they would speak loudly, but that was not out of disrespect.
This is talking out loudly about your own stuff about your own matters. Your disputes your fights, and you're completely ignoring the fact that the messenger is there, his grave is there, you're in that Masjid. That is okay. If a person is correcting someone, if a person is teaching someone that's different seminary classes are held over the Holocaust are taught over there. So that's different.
How else can we apply this today? Or how does it apply to us?
When the words of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they are being taught, they are being studied. They are being recited when his Syrah is being studied, where his sila is being taught. How should a person be
in his world
In his behavior in the way he's sitting in the way that he's carrying himself. So basically, the gatherings of knowledge, the gatherings of Hades, and we see that the salaf they were so respectful of these gatherings, that even if a scholar was teaching, and he was being bitten by a scorpion, he wouldn't move. He wouldn't scream, he wouldn't stop. He wouldn't do that. Just imagine. And for us, unfortunately, on the smallest of things, what will we do? We will get up, we will move around, we will leave, we won't care about our cell phones, they're ringing This is disrespect, complete disrespect.
You know, what is that it happens out of mistake, but the other is that you should be careful from before. So, when it comes to us, how we do observe this herckel that the gatherings where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is being mentioned, whereas Hades has been taught the CEO has been taught, we are not to create noise over there.
We are not to be loud in those gatherings rather, we should be silent, respectful.
And you know that with regard to the Quran, what do we learn what are called
festa Marula who for unsullied to why because of a person does not have respect if a person violates the limit if a person raises the voice and what does that show, there's no higher, isn't it? There's no respect so high that leaves them and when there's no higher that is what leads a person to doing whatever he wants to do.
That is what will lead to going against the command of law to condemn obey the law solely respect comes first then comes obedience and respect. How is that shown? When you lower your voice? When you become silent? When you become respectful in your behavior?
So once a person has other, then he will obey when there is no other no obedience. This is why in sort of attire, nine What did we learn earlier? That Allah is the one who has sent the messenger? Why? He took me novella, he wore a suit he was a Zulu. What do aku What are we supposed to do as believers believe in align His Messenger and honor the messenger and respect the messenger as well? Help him assist him but how would this How would you assess the messenger with respect with respect, honor the messenger as well.
In total alpha 157, we learned for letting an airman will be he was Whoo hoo, hoo hoo, whatever Nora Lady unzila Mara, who will echo homophone that those who believe in Him, honor him supported him followed the light which was sent down with him, it is those who are the successful ones.
And respect for the messenger is especially necessary. Why? Because he was the final messenger. He was a last messenger, and the Dean was completed, it was perfected with him.
So in order for us to follow the dean observe the dean property, respect also has to be there. Because as we learned earlier, respect and obedience have a very deep connection, a very strong connection. So this is why respect for the messenger sallallahu Sallam is essential.
And if you think about it, where we have been told that well added Haruna, who will colico Jerry barleycorn liberal, we don't even call our elders by name. When it comes to our mothers, when it comes to our grandparents. When it comes to our uncles and aunts? Do we call them my name? No, we're not to do that. Then how can a person justify calling the messenger by his name? This is not correct. This is against respect.
But unfortunately, we think oh, you know, it's no big deal. There are people who call their aunts by their names and they call their elders by their names. It doesn't matter if somebody's 20 years older than you or two years older than you are 50 years older than you, you call Tom. Tom, you call Mary Mary. This is the culture of the country that we're living in. Okay, they have a culture. However, we also have a dean. And Allah has status, our other our manners, because sometimes in the name of being modern, in the name of being Western, in the name of societies evolving and cultures and norms changing, we think we don't have to have respect for each other. No, respect still has to
And we see that because of this thinking that people have that, you know, now we live in Canada, and now we live in us or back home, you're supposed to, you know, respect your elders. Here. You don't have to. You don't have to just be polite, but you can call other people by name. And it's okay to be frank. It's okay. If I call my teacher crazy in front of her.
It's okay if I, you know, pass a joke to my elder and say something disrespectful. Oh,
These things, this is what we think.
But it's against either.
And sometimes, this type of behavior is promoted, it's encouraged that call that person by his name, or people say, call me by my name.
So, our religion teaches us at the NSC, because there's no other left. This is why spouses don't have respect for one another. Parents and children don't have respect for one another. Teachers and students, even they don't have respect for each other. It's just like a business, isn't it?
Whereas this relationship is of other.
Husband and wife are also to respect each other. But unfortunately, the way they speak to one another, it says, oh, they're speaking to children, or they're speaking to servants. When you don't have respect for your husband, how will you obey Him? Oh,
if you yell at him in public, if you embarrass them in front of others, how can you listen to him? You can't,
So this is yes, it teaches the etiquette with regards to the messenger sallallahu Sallam but in this is a huge lesson for us. That How are we to deal with our superiors? Those who are above us those who are older than us, those who are higher than us? How are we to deal with them? That don't raise your voice, and don't talk to them the way you talk to one another.
And we see that the prophets Allah sent him himself. How did he speak? Was he ever found yelling, laughing out loudly, making noise? Never. This is also against his, we learned that I shall learn her narrative. I never saw the Prophet sallallahu wasallam laughing to an extent that one could see the back of his mouth with a piece of flesh that hangs at the back of the mouth, the throat. But he always used to smile, because when a person laughs out loudly like that, such that the mouth is completely open, then what does it show? What does it show a person is so non serious. He doesn't have self respect. He doesn't have respect for others. He doesn't have other for others. He doesn't
care if somebody's resting, if somebody's sleeping, if somebody's working, the Find something funny, laughing, laughing away and making so much noise.
Similarly, it is not like for a person that he cries out very loudly as well, that he yelled out loudly as well. And one of the qualities of the profits that are listed and they're mentioned in the Delta is that he does not shout nor scream in the marketplace. So this is also against his own. And in acts of worship, also when it comes to acts of worship, how should a person be gentle, sobered silent, not noisy. Which is why when it comes to reciting the Quran, even we are to recite loud, but not screaming out. Not reciting as though we're yelling at someone, no, recite with humility, recite clearly, but not louder. So you're yelling at someone.
Similarly, when it comes to Salah, are we allowed to run to solve the jamara has started? No, what are we to do still walk? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said if the prayer is started, do not run for it. But just walk for it calmly and pray whatever you get incomplete, whatever is missing later.
Similarly, we see that once at alpha at hedge, the profits are honest Adam he left out of a very peacefully and quietly holding the reins of his she gambled so tightly that its head touched its back.
Imagine the head of the camel was touching the back. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was holding the camel so firmly as well, that the camera even cannot move here there. Why? Because he was leaving.
You're in a state of worship. And you must do it with silence with seriousness with nobility peacefully.
What do we learn about her about the recruitment
of Chanel early hone, honan. Gently, this gentleness is very important even in acts of worship. And we see that while the prophets are a lot of time was leaving like that. There was a group of people who were, you know, making a lot of noise as they were leaving that yes, you know, we're done with alpha, now we're going to the next step of HUD. So they were being very noisy. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, or people walk calmly, rushing or making haste is not a virtue. Rushing or making haste is not a virtue.
Because sometimes we make noise, we move very quickly, why in order to be noticed in order to be heard. So this is not a virtue, this is not something good. You don't have to be heard when you're busy in an act of worship do so commonly.
Similarly, when a person is sitting in the gathering of knowledge, how should he said how commonly not that he's making so much noise? This is why even when you turn your pages, my dears, how should you do that?
gently, don't make too much noise.
Whether it is that read or it is a time of recitation
When you turn your pages, do it softly, because you're studying the book of Allah, isn't it. and respect means that you respect the place you respect the people, you respect the book even, even that needs to be respected. Put it on the table, not on the floor. Don't pass it around. Don't throw it here and there. The other day, I saw someone throwing something on one of these desks after class, and it felt so I mean, whatever it was, even if it was not your juice, even if it was your homework diary, or something, if you throw it, what is it?
A very casual behavior, isn't it? But when it comes to learning when it comes to anything of the deen, we are to show respect. Don't throw your books. Don't throw your fence because even the pen, what do we learn about it? Allah subhanaw taala swore an oath by it. Right? And it's the first thing that a las panatela created lemma will honor he has stopped by the Allah is an utter when Konami when is stolen, he swore an oath by the colonel. And when Allah subhanaw taala, swears an oath by something, it is very important. Therefore don't throw your pants. don't scratch your feet with your bends. Don't do nasty things with your friends, respect the pen that you use to write the Koran.
Because this other is very, very important. When there's other only then a person can receive only then a person can gain and only then can he retain what he has learned, and only when he retains, then he can act on the knowledge that he escaped Otherwise, it will be all washed away.
So other is very, very important.
And we see that, especially knowledge especially deserves a lot of other, a lot of respect.
And where the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is to be respected, those of knowledge are also to be respected Allah. Allah says polyester, Willa Dena Yamuna, Valentina Lai, Allah would know. So sometimes we think, Oh, this person younger than me.
But even if they're younger than you, if they have memorized the Quran, they are greater than you. And they deserve respect from you.
We think only children, you know, disrespect them, yell at them, do whatever you want. No, they're students of the Quran.
Similarly, we think, oh, Tony, a teacher, it's only a group in charge. It's only this it's only that no, any person who is involved in the learning and teaching of the Quran, they're not like other people.
Therefore, they cannot be treated like other people, either. You cannot treat someone who marks your assignments, your assignments, like someone who marked your English test paper, know, a huge difference. You cannot just call them by name. You cannot say no to them, when they ask you something, you cannot ignore them when they pass by you. You cannot say, Oh, so what? She's younger than me? No, this is not correct. Because unfortunately, we have this concept. You have teachers teacher, what's the big deal? It is a big deal. It is a huge deal, especially when that person is involved in any way, in any way to teach you the answer that you can learn to
respect has to be there for every single individual in this work. And we see that musala salam Who was he
a messenger of Allah, what do we learn about him? What kind of in the law he would he her?
But still, when he went to how to learn what did he say to him? Hell activate Rocha, Allah and to Alemany Merlin DeCosta. May I follow you? May I follow you?
And what do we think? We don't need to take any permission. We come as we please. We go as we please. We do whatever we please. We don't think we need to take permission moosari salaam being the Messenger of Allah Han. Luca, May I follow you? May I accompany you. Because we think if we seek permission, if we ask a person one thing, this is like respecting them. And this is like acknowledging their greatness and I don't want to acknowledge their greatness, because if I do, then this is like not respecting myself. No, we think honor is gained only by humiliating the other. No, true honor is gained by respecting other people. And this is what our Dean teaches us.
I have a few more things, but we listened to the recitation first and then we'll continue
Another thing that we can learn is that when the Adhan is being pronounced where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is mentioned, then again, how should our voice be our volume be low, Don't raise your voices above that of the messenger, don't address the messenger like the way you address each other. So when the other end has been pronounced, and the messenger is mentioned, then what should we do? Be silent, and only if something is necessary, speak that. And that too, in a very low voice, and that do, preferably the gap that is between the statements, not while the iodine is being pronounced.
I'd love to say that statement somehow in English, but I don't know how to translate that, by other
by other means the one who observes other, he is been asleep, meaning he's the one who gets him asleep, some share something, they are the one who does not show any other who does not have any respect, any manners, then he has been asleep, meaning he doesn't get any sleep either. He doesn't get any share. He doesn't gain anything. Everything comes out with respect.
Sometimes it happens that because of this, saying that by the by the CPA or the Venus eat, that sometimes happens that we're trying our best to learn, memorize, perform well, but we're not getting it done. Despite our effort. Perhaps it is because we lack respect. Perhaps it is because we don't have as much adapt for the Quran. As much other for the people of the Quran as much other for the place where the Quran is being done, for the books for the bands for all of these things.
So one of the stories was one of the listed in the masjid, was having a halakha. And then every like five minutes or so he started standing up and stopping palaka and then sitting down again. And then he continued standing up again. So the students there was asking him afterwards, why did you do that? So he said, when I was standing up I was from the masjid, he could look at the fence of the masjid, that at that time, I saw the son of my teacher coming in because getting a wall or something was playing. So I stood up in respect of him every time he comes in.
So like it just tells me we adapt. And this was like in the previous years, back then how people think knowledge is gold. And they respect whoever carries it. And nowadays, you think that you know, knowledge is something so free and so light to be taken off that you can miss it. But that then people actually look and search and go far for it. And you know, when you have adept for knowledge, there's Baraka
Baraka that you carry forward. But if you just take it easy and you don't have any benefit whatsoever, then the knowledge just goes away.
kissing the Koran if something happens, as we learned in the first I allowed to call him obey the law, he was odd, Assouline, don't try to get ahead of aligners messenger, whatever they have taught us, however, they have taught us that respect should be shown. That is how we show respect. We don't invent our own ways of showing respect. Because sometimes people think that in order to show respect to the messenger, we have to have a gathering and we have to sing songs in his praise. And then at the end, we send them through then we all stand up because he's coming. This is an innovation. This is something that has been fabricated. So even when it comes to showing respect, how do we show it
in the way that has been taught, not in our own invented way? Because it's possible that the way that we have invented to show respect to him, in fact, that is disrespectful. Like for instance, people say that the prophets are allowed his enemies alive in his grave, and when you go to his grave, and you make the law, he can hear you. I think this is extremely disrespectful. This is not respect at all. Because how, how can you ever ever imagine someone alive? Isn't the grave? Someone alive? Isn't the grave? How could you ever imagine someone alive is under the ground? Is that other? That's not other. So people have invented things, and they think they're being very respectful. But
this is not correct. Even when it comes to other that has to be done in the way aligners messenger have taught us.
So we see over here in these ayat that because of the status of Allah, because of the status of the messenger, what are we to do, obey them, follow them, and respect them?
Because of the status of the messenger because of who he is. This is why the Sahaba were not allowed to raise their voices in front of him. This is why they were not allowed to address him the way they addressed others because of the status of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam This is why when it comes to his words, when it comes to the Syrah when it comes to his teachings, we are to show respect in these gatherings. What does this teach us? This teaches us that people should be treated
According to their level, their status is an utter because Allah and His Messenger have a very high status, therefore they deserve a lot of respect.
Similarly, if someone is older than you greater than you in any way, what does that mean? acknowledge their greatness, except their greatness. unzila NASA monazite
is my friend. But the moment that line is across, you cannot benefit to that teacher anymore. So it was saying how they used to study, they are always like humbling look down in front of their teacher, they were never able to question why do I have to do it. And sometimes when other scholars saying that, sometimes just to teach them other, their teacher would just slap them. And they are not allowed to say anything, you know, they knew that they just to teach them under. So this thing we should be concerned about it. And so hubby mentioned that when he heard this idea, he thought it was about himself, and was concerned in my thinking that he's a man is wasted. Something we should
be concerned, a common is not wasted.
Sometimes we just behave with other people very frankly, in a very casual manner thinking they're just my age, they're so much likely. And we forget the you know, status of the other or the position of the other. And because of that we say things sometimes that are disrespectful. I mean, being friendly, is not wrong at all. In fact, it's very good, being friendly, because when you're friendly, then you can communicate easier than you can speak to the other easily. However, when it comes to a level of being too Frank, then sometimes it leads to crossing the limits as well. Sometimes it happens with parents and children that sometimes children, you know, they are very
friendly with their parents, and because of that, they say something to their parents, which are unimaginable. Why are you doing this mom? Can't you do this yourself? Why are you telling me? I mean, this is something you say to your sibling, not to your mother? Yes, it's very good. You're frank with your mother, you have a very good friendship with her. However, this friendship should not lead to disrespect adults should always be there.
So we see that if someone is greater than you in any way, they deserve respect,
and zero nasm and Ezra home treat people according to status, whether it is a highest status that a person has because of religious reasons or worldly reasons. Like for example, we learned that once a beggar passed by I shall beat on him.
And she gave him a piece of bread, just a small piece of bread and other men who were close and had good appearance passed by her. And she made him sit and he ate, or the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did that. And when she was asked about that, she replied, The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, treat the people according to their right. So when the beggar came, she gave us a piece of bread, why it was sufficient for him. But when another person came, who was of a greater status, that person was made to sit and eat property, and then he was sent to it, you get it. So people have a higher rank than you sometimes because of who they are. They're your they're your uncle, they're your grandparents,
worldly reasons, right? Similarly, they're your boss, your employer. Similarly, they are someone whom you report to they're not your boss, but someone who is in a higher position than you at work. Now, similarly, Indian, someone has more knowledge than you someone who is a half is someone who needs to prayer, someone who teaches someone who is of the staff, someone who is of the admin, greater status, isn't it? So depending on the status of the person, you have to deal with them. You cannot disregard that status. You cannot ignore that. And sometimes we think that oh, we live in the West, it's okay. No believer, whether he's in the east or the west, north, south, wherever he will
someone who is of a lower rank than you, you respect them as well. But it's okay. If you treat them according to the level that they have. When she gave him a piece of bread. It wasn't like she disrespected him. She gave him something. She didn't yell at him and say, Oh, why are you begging go away? No, she gave him something. But she gave him something which you wouldn't mind taking?
But if you offer a piece of work to someone who is wealthy, someone who was your teacher, then perhaps it wouldn't mind taking you then
about rights and less regarding our duties. We always talk about our rights that we deserve to be respected, but you fall short on the duties as a result what we're doing, we're depriving our new generation from a lot because I was just thinking about the other parameter set when it is recited. Listen and be quiet. And now you're being given another command that your teacher who is going to explain
knew the Quran prophecy lesson and he was the best teacher right? Then now give me thought that is at a bit how we are supposed to feed him.
Family, respecting teachers or an older sister very good and very nice, but we shouldn't be crossing limit like 10 his stand up for the limb, which is not right to stand up for the violin.
It was because the teacher was coming, right? So because he was teaching at that point. And when your teacher comes in, you might give that behavior that or I'm teaching right now I'm busy, I'm going to ignore you. So it was as though he didn't want to ignore him. He wanted to acknowledge his presence is coming. Yes, the prophets of Allah sort of did not like for him that when he would come people would stand up. He didn't like that, in fact, he stopped people from doing it. But sometimes when you're busy doing something, this looking at the other person, stopping for a moment what you're doing and looking at them, you're acknowledging their presence, and that is a part of
respecting them. So in any way, show respect, whatever your circumstance your situation allows you to do, basically.
Now we see that the prophets of Allah sent him even he was very, very respectful when it came to
his companions, his wives, his relatives who are older than him, those who were greater than him in the sense that they had taken care of him when he was young.
For instance, we learned that once the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was distributing meat. And while he was doing this, his nursing mother came to see the woman who had nursed the Prophet sallallahu sallam, she came to see him and immediately he stopped distributing the meat, he spread his own shawl on the floor for her to sit on. So imagine he gave her respect, he showed respect to her. And the people were wondering who is this woman, because they didn't know. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told them that she is my nursing whether
we alternate unless of the man who he said that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam went to visit him a man who was
the lady who took care of him. When his mother passed away. She was basically the slave of his father, and she was with his mother. And they were traveling, when the mother of the profits or losses and passageways, Ayman is the one who took care of her. So the profits on a lot of them went to visit her.
Imagine he went to visit her. And and so the doctor who said that I accompanied him.
I will back out of the Learning Center a little Delano after the death of the Messenger of Allah, let us go visit a man as a messenger of a lie used to visitor
after the death of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what did this have to do? Let's go visit her because the Prophet used to go visitor. And when they finished visiting her and we're about to leave, she began to cry. So they asked her, What is it that makes you cry? Is that not which is with a lot better for the Messenger of Allah? Meaning when the prophets or laws that had passed away, they went to see her, so she was crying? So they said, Why are you crying what he has with the lies much better? She replied, I'm not crying because I'm not aware that that which is with Allah is better for him. But I am crying because our relation from the heavens has stopped. This is why I'm
crying. So they also started to cry with her when she said that. So anyway, and it is at that she was an adverse Indian woman she was a slave. But look at the respect that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam shoulder
and how do we treat such people, maids servants, people who don't have any respect children, yell at them, order them around, unfortunately. So it's very important that this other should be taught to our children from very, very young age.
Let's listen to the recitation of these verses from the beginning.
