does that allow higher muscle masalah

00:00:57--> 00:01:40

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam O Allah Azza wa Jalla wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa tada in Parliament. Sn in Li oma Deen Ma Ma, Ma Ma in a law firm. I mean, obviously somebody was silly Emory law could determine the sanity of okoli. So the harnick Allah Allah Mallanna Elana alum, Tana in Naka, Antonio Hakim, my dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, it is an honor or Lahore light to be with you, I love Malaysia and people knows that it's not a secret anymore. I love Malaysia, I love the people

00:01:41--> 00:02:07

in Long Island for the invitation, the management of the beautiful messages here desikan lohana for the opportunity and May Allah subhanaw taala make our gathering beneficial, and may have lost planet Allah as he gathered us tonight in this beautiful day, may Allah subhanaw taala gather us again in sha Allah, but in a better gathering in general inshallah with the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi Salaam, and his household and companions. I mean,

00:02:09--> 00:02:41

in short, a lot of the talk that I was given to speak about today is something very essential. It's actually a manner and ethic, someone something that we need to adopt in our daily life. And many Muslims, unfortunately, are belittling that manner. And that is the karma as it was announced, or to become consistent in action, to always remain on the straight path, to always remain steadfast, no matter what happened around us.

00:02:42--> 00:02:50

If the whole world is corrupt, we will remain steadfast. And that reminds me of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:02:51--> 00:03:40

where he said better Islam or even worse, I will do arriba for tomorrow. He said, salaatu wa Salaam. He said Islam started as something really strange, very weird, because at that time, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam started preaching to people who used to worship over 360 gods, and now here is Mohammed telling them sallallahu Sallam telling them that there is only one God and you cannot even see. So for that particular time for the people around in Arabia, it was very strange, very strange concept for them. So the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam is reminding us my brothers and sisters, he's telling us that Islam started as something really strange, but guess what? It's going back to

00:03:40--> 00:03:51

that stage of being strange. So Islam started strange, and it will go back as to be something strange. Then he gave us a good news. He said, What for to

00:03:53--> 00:04:00

give good news to those who are strangers, those who are not ashamed to practice Islam.

00:04:01--> 00:04:06

Those who are not ashamed to say my name is Mohammed instead of saying My name is Mo.

00:04:07--> 00:04:18

Yeah, those who are not ashamed to say my name is use of instead of saying, Joe, in Egypt, here Fatima is Fifi now, and in the relay or in LA Raja,

00:04:20--> 00:04:45

those who are consistent, those who are patient during times of trials and tribulations and difficulties. So the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they asked him, who are the strangers or prophets of Allah, Who are they give us a sign give us some indications. You say those people who will remain steadfast and firm when everyone else is corrupted.

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

When everyone else deviate from the path of Allah, those strangers those people who the prophets of Southern said they will receive good news of Jelena and sha Allah, those people will remain forever.

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

Until the end until death until they need a loss of time. Those people are the strangers those people who will receive the good news of gentlemen ciao.

00:05:12--> 00:05:53

You see, the scholars would say what they said allied bra laser beam and sub allied bronze demon seventh, the scholars will say that Allah subhanaw taala will not determine your destiny, whether Jen, or the opposite destination, may Allah save us just because you became religious before others, just because you have grown a beard before others or do you have put in the car or before others? Or do you have become a Muslim before others? No, it's this is not the criteria, the criteria of those who will enter Jannah Allah subhanaw taala will determine the destiny based on their level of steadfastness consistency is the karma.

00:05:55--> 00:06:01

Other scholars would say for colavita wheel, the journey towards a law is so long.

00:06:02--> 00:06:13

But it is not that important to reach the destiny, it's not that important. What is more important is to die upon that path to die upon that straight path.

00:06:14--> 00:06:57

If that's your end goal, and you're striving to reach Allah subhanaw taala and his gentlemen, and you die while you're struggling, Allah subhanaw taala will complete the journey for you, but just remain upon the straight path. The purpose of this lecture, my brothers and sisters is not to entertain you. I didn't come all the way from Hong Kong, just to speak, and you listen, and that's it. So I wanted to see some hands in Sharla if we agree to practice what we hear. So those who are ready to take an action tonight insha Allah, please raise your hand that we are ready to take some actions and do some positive changes in our lives. Sisters, are you with us in sha Allah Allahu

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

Akbar.

00:06:59--> 00:07:15

Because the problem is, we all know what we are what I'm going to talk about, to be honest with you, all of us know, what am I both about to discuss. But there is a huge difference between knowing and doing.

00:07:17--> 00:07:25

There is a huge difference between having good intentions, and translating that intention into action. Now we want it to be people of action.

00:07:27--> 00:07:27

Omar

00:07:29--> 00:08:03

Coleman has done a lot in Islam. We are a nation that was dignified and honored through Islam. And if we design any other way of life other than Islam, we will be disgraced. In other words, if we don't practice, what came through the prophet sallallahu Sallam in the Quran and his teaching, we will be humiliated in this world and in the Hereafter, so we want it to be people off action inshallah. You see a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he told him all messenger of Allah, teach me something in Islam,

00:08:05--> 00:08:14

that I will hold and grab very fast, I will hold on to it, and I will never let go. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam told him what

00:08:16--> 00:09:04

Allah Thumma stockin say, My Lord is Allah then remain upon that then becomes steadfast. So my brothers and sisters, I wanted to draw your attention to something very, very important. Belief alone is not sufficient to say I believe in Allah and that's it without fulfilling the criteria and the commands of Allah Subhana Allah is not sufficient for you to entertain them. That's why in this duration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying what he's saying, after believing in Allah then remain upon that belief until the end. What law he will law he my brothers and sisters, there are many people who I know whom I met, who started practicing Islam for years going to the

00:09:04--> 00:09:09

masjid every day and every night and all of a sudden, those people disappear.

00:09:10--> 00:09:25

We don't see them anymore in the masjid. We don't hear from them anymore. And you know, while walking down the streets, you meet some of them and you say Sonic umbrella? Where is your beard? What happened? What is your hijab? What is this cigarettes in your hand?

00:09:26--> 00:09:53

So don't be fooled by becoming religious and rely and relax and sit down and literally pause and play with your mind No, Ababa, Crystal decode the Aloha norba the best of all mankind after the prophets. He himself who was granted gentlemen during his lifetime, he said what he said if one of my foot is already in Jana, I will never feel secured from the plan one last time.

00:09:54--> 00:09:58

Those people were serious Muslims. They were serious.

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

If I have

00:10:00--> 00:10:28

If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came and become, you know, walk down with us today, and he told you sisters, you will be in gentlemen, brothers, you will be in gentlemen. And what is the point for us to pray hard? What is the point for us to pay charity or fast or do acts of worship? I already got my guarantee from the Prophet Sall, Allahu Allah. But these people, they didn't rely on that. They were the most fearful and the most serious of all Muslims.

00:10:29--> 00:10:40

So the prophets, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah make it very, very clear. Excuse me, he made it very clear that after Shahada after belief in Allah comes is the karma

00:10:42--> 00:10:51

of the Shahada comes upon. I remember one of the narrations of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, salaam, one day he was sitting with his companions asking them

00:10:52--> 00:11:08

who amongst you today is fasting, and that was after fudger By the way, and after further, he was discussing with them chatting with them, and he asked the Mormons who is fasting today about what he called the Aloha north or is that his hand and he say me?

00:11:09--> 00:11:47

Who amongst you today have given something in charity? Abu Bakr has to be, again Robbie, aloha Norma miniato Sula, who amongst you today have visited a sick person, again, because they're of the Aloha Norma, Meera Sula, who amongst you have followed janazah attended the janaza prayer, again, because they're me. Allah subhanaw taala. No one taught him this. No one told him to go and visit the sick or pay charity or fast no one he initiated it. He didn't wait for someone to come and tell him do this or do that. They were racing.

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

They were racing with one another.

00:11:51--> 00:12:02

What sorry? Oh, Allahu Akbar. Oh, sorry. Oh, my brothers and sister haste raised towards Jana, which is as wide as the heavens and the earth Allahu Akbar,

00:12:03--> 00:12:46

prepared for who are the two talking those who really feel a lot. Those who really have in their mind and in their heart, God consciousness, they are aware that Allah is over watching them day and night. So whether they are in public or in secret, they are the same. We have in our community, some people for example, when the when the lead the Salah, some of them they beautify the voices. They move slowly, while praying they go down slowly into the core slowly into rising and subdued beautifully. And when they recite slowly Allahu Akbar, do you cry sometimes Alhamdulillah

00:12:48--> 00:12:53

I mean, and we enjoy, but sometimes when we are alone, how do we

00:12:54--> 00:12:58

how do we lead my brothers and sisters? We take a deep breath

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

a lot.

00:13:03--> 00:13:06

Finish in one second La Jolla.

00:13:09--> 00:13:13

We need we need to be consistent in our actions my brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:13:15--> 00:13:31

Even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the best of mankind the best of all creation. He was commanded by Allah to remain steadfast. Can you imagine that Chosen One? Allah subhanaw taala said to the Prophet for stopping karma omitted.

00:13:33--> 00:13:41

He told him, Allah subhanaw taala. Mohammed remains steadfast as you have been commanded.

00:13:43--> 00:13:50

This is a command for the Prophet. The Best of all, how about you and I? How about you and me sisters and brothers?

00:13:52--> 00:14:02

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, when this surah was revealed, he said she knew the chapter of food make my hair go gray because of the heaviness of the message.

00:14:04--> 00:14:07

So we have a responsibility here my brothers and sisters.

00:14:09--> 00:14:52

Yes, we pray and hamdulillah Yes, we fast we give charity we are some of the best and most hospitable people on earth. Alhamdulillah but Islam is not only about worship, worshiping Allah is one aspect. But there are other aspects in Islam, which I believe we have neglected such as manners, ethics, dealing with one another dealing with non Muslims, dealing with neighbors, talking to each other, dealing with differences of opinions of the scholars and so on and so forth. We rush into judging one another based on our movement, whether I put my hands up here or up here or up here. We start you know backbiting each other gossiping one another. In my right my brother and sisters, and

00:14:52--> 00:14:55

these gossiping backed by things are now on Facebook

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

on a wider scale now

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

Some brothers are busy just browsing the Facebook day and night. Why? Because they wanted to know sister Fatima changed her profile picture or not?

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

in Allah.

00:15:13--> 00:15:14

May Allah save us.

00:15:15--> 00:15:24

I wanted to ask you, my brothers and sisters in Islam, Honestly speaking, if the prophets of Allah Halima Salah was with us today, will he be happy?

00:15:26--> 00:15:40

If you invited the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam to your home today, will he be happy? If you open the TV will you invite the prophets of Salaam to watch movie with you, or TV series that we have become addicted to it? addiction

00:15:42--> 00:15:54

has become widespread among young youth, with the rise of internet and movie industry and so on and so forth. And these movies my brothers and sisters and TV series ads on our brain like drugs a lot.

00:15:55--> 00:16:17

Remember my grandma Mia love Brazil on our one day we were watching this kind of movie. And these movies have the insert ideas that are foreign that are are an Islamic? And when we keep on watching these ideas what happened when certain events occur that are similar to what we have been watching. We act out. We imitate them.

00:16:18--> 00:17:00

How many of you and to be honest, yeah, we want it to be honest. Right? How many of you here are watching movies? Raise your hand. Yeah, don't be shy. Don't be shy. Okay. Okay. Okay, muscle, no problem. How many of you have watched a movie where there is a girl had fallen in love with a boy? Raise your hand? Okay, how many of you have watched a movie where the boy was poor? And the girl was rich? And you know, yeah, masala? Some? How many of you have watched that same movie with the man went to the family of this girl to propose to marry her and he was rejected because he's poor. Some of you massala How many of you have watched the same movie where the girl decided to leave and to

00:17:00--> 00:17:01

run away with her boyfriend?

00:17:03--> 00:17:04

muscle

00:17:05--> 00:17:07

It seems that we watch the same movie.

00:17:09--> 00:17:21

So one day I was watching that kind of a movie with my grandmother may Allah have mercy on her and it was the Arabic version of that movie. And the girl in the movie decided to run to leave home and run with her boyfriend.

00:17:22--> 00:17:27

And she entered her dance room because she wanted to steal his his car key

00:17:29--> 00:17:34

and of course the director would create that suspense so the girl is opening the door and the door like

00:17:35--> 00:17:40

you know that kind of and everybody's worried in the room everyone is worried what's gonna happen

00:17:41--> 00:17:55

and the girl start moving on her toes walking opening the cardboard to see that the car key and all of a sudden, the father started turning inside as if he's getting disturbed and all of a sudden my grandma next to me she made

00:17:56--> 00:18:01

she raised her hand and she say Allah please don't let the father week of your love Please

00:18:06--> 00:18:14

because these movies the insert these kind of ideas in your brain to make you feel sympathy for the wrong

00:18:16--> 00:18:30

that's what they wanted you to do. Sisters they want you to leave home and run with your boyfriend's. For the sake of one you just know barely a few weeks back few months back you will leave your parents who need you the most. So be careful.

00:18:31--> 00:18:41

We will never be good Muslims why we are you know watching movies day and night TV series TV series. Even some people don't pray because TV has come at seven o'clock.

00:18:42--> 00:18:59

They will wait they will say after the TV series inshallah. We wanted to know he will tell her I love you know, we wanted to know so they will be waiting just waiting to see what's going to happen in the TV series in an imaginary story invented which which may never happen in real life.

00:19:01--> 00:19:32

So if you wanted to go to Germany, if you wanted to really be steadfast try to go back my brothers and sisters to Allah try to go back to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and what he told us, whenever you do something, ask yourself this question. You don't need a Mufti to ask. You don't need a scholar to us. You don't need any man to ask for the law. He don't need anyone to ask. But every time you want it, you are doing anything. Ask yourself the following question. If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is here, will he approve of what I'm doing or not?

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

So don't come and tell me secret this holiday or

00:19:37--> 00:20:00

don't come and tell me Hey, job is hard, is obligatory or not? Don't come and tell me music is valid or not. You ask yourself if the profit is with you, will he approve that action or no? Ask ask yourself And believe me, you will know the answer yourself. You don't need an MFT in most cases, we don't need but we

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

Just wanted to halala is the home.

00:20:03--> 00:20:16

We wanted to have allies around so we wanted to ask us and argue, until we became sick with a sickness called Why? Why convinced me Why is obligatory Why, why, why, why?

00:20:18--> 00:20:30

We didn't know that the companions of the Prophet SAW Allah Allah never questioned him. Whenever he taken action. Whenever he commanded him to do something, they will just follow, walk or lose.

00:20:35--> 00:20:45

In a year whenever there is a command revealed from a lots of panels, and the believers will hear the prophets a lot is reciting the words they will say what

00:20:48--> 00:20:54

we hear, and we obey, but the Muslims of today they have become the people of semana.

00:20:55--> 00:20:59

Just a man. That's why I said in the beginning, don't be just listeners, please,

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

obey. Now it's the words of Allah. It's not my words. It's the word of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

And for Allah subhanaw taala to motivate you to make you even happy, excited. He gave every word to those who are steadfast, what is the reward?

00:21:23--> 00:21:23

In

00:21:33--> 00:21:33

aka

00:21:38--> 00:21:39

aka to Allah.

00:21:42--> 00:21:43

Be sure to

00:21:48--> 00:21:49

tune in

00:21:51--> 00:22:13

a Lost Planet. Allah says in the Quran. As of those who say Our Lord this Allah then remains steadfast again the two conditions, believe he man and what will happen to those people at the moment of death, as at the moment the most critical moment of anyone's life death, which everyone in this Masjid scares off.

00:22:15--> 00:22:24

Despite jewelry man high or low, when we hear about death, we scared we get you know that fear in our heart because it's the unknown stage in our life.

00:22:26--> 00:22:36

But Allah is telling us those people who are believers and firm upon the truth upon a straight path, what will happen to them at this critical moment that

00:22:38--> 00:22:43

the angels will descend upon them by a command from Allah telling them

00:22:45--> 00:22:48

Don't scare you're afraid of death, don't worry.

00:22:50--> 00:22:56

And don't be sad, where the shadow and receive the good news agenda which you would promises

00:23:01--> 00:23:27

alpha we are your supporters in this world. And in the next and when you get to Agenda inshallah, you will have that which you wish for. And that which you asked for. Whatever you wish for you will be it will be granted. And whatever you asked for it will be granted. So you better be patient now, you better control your desires now so that you can get much more better, you know, items later on.

00:23:29--> 00:23:35

steadfastness I remember one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:23:38--> 00:23:41

who was known as Abdullah, ignore

00:23:42--> 00:24:07

me and I wanted you to remember that name. Jani. I wanted you to memorize the name. Can we do that homework? I wanted you to memorize the name of this man this companion. Why? Because inshallah we will have a homework to do. And I don't want to leave you just with words. I want you to have an action plan. After this short lecture, inshallah. What's his name again, Abdullah

00:24:09--> 00:24:16

asked me a lot of people that need to get up the law, Abdullah Ignacio de as

00:24:18--> 00:24:19

he was

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

one of the members

00:24:25--> 00:24:59

in an army assembled by Omar, Abdullah Anwar Ba, and they were sent to meet the Christian, you know, Army. And the army was overtaken by the Christian army. So they were taken as prisoners, how many of them 300 amongst them was Abdullah in a semi and he was the leader of that group. So the Christian King brought him into his, you know, court, and he was very interested to convert him into Christianity. So he told them embrace Christianity.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

I'm going to give you half of my wealth,

00:25:03--> 00:25:33

half of my wealth. Now I want you to just imagine with me the words that are below me will use to respond to the Christian King, a man of authority again, talking to a prisoner, telling him embrace Christianity, and I'm going to give you half of my wisdom. Listen what he said. He said, voila, he, if you give me all your wealth, and the wealth of the entire planet, I will never leave the deen of Mohammed for a blinking of an eye.

00:25:36--> 00:25:55

That is that is a strong statement. He could have said no, he could have said thank you know, keep your money for yourself. We could have chosen any statement. But rather he was so clear that I would never leave that you know Mohammed for a blink of an eye. Can we be that strong?

00:25:57--> 00:26:08

They forced him. They jailed him they put him in a cell and they prevented him from eating for three days, no food, no drink, until his neck was twisted out of hunger exhaustion.

00:26:09--> 00:26:12

And after three days, they offered him pork and wine,

00:26:13--> 00:26:14

eat and drink.

00:26:15--> 00:26:58

And he said my Allah in my condition, pork and wine is halal. Because I have no choice. But I will never let you say that the Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had eaten the flesh of swine. I will never allow that to happen. And he didn't touch it. The cell in his cell a prostitute to seduce him to break him because they know that once you committed Xin our Villa which we will be discussing in the coming conference, in the straight path convention in sha Allah which I think there is a poster outside for the details. We will discuss sexual immorality, which are sabotaging the Muslims nowadays, whether in real life or on the internet pornography and banned

00:26:58--> 00:27:09

inappropriate movies and so on and so forth. They knew that once a Muslim committed Zinner, he's a man is snatched away from him so they could break him right there.

00:27:10--> 00:27:18

That's why the profits on the last sentence in the moment, at the moment of committing Zina is not a moment it's not a believer.

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

But

00:27:21--> 00:27:37

he was so strong, so far, so steadfast, he ran away from her in the cell within the cell. He was running away from her until the lady felt bored. And she went out and she said, he is a rock. He can't move. Allahu Akbar.

00:27:38--> 00:27:47

This is a message for the youth. What will you do if something appeared to you on the screen? When you run away when you shut down the TV? When you say

00:27:49--> 00:27:49

or when you do

00:27:51--> 00:28:23

when you enjoy what you're saying, Look at Learn from Abdullah hit me the handle him on a tree. And the king told him shoot arrows towards this direction. But don't hit him. Just scare him off. And he was standing seeing the arrows coming from left and right. And that never shook him never makes him move an inch towards Christianity. The brought two of his companions, and the king ordered the soldiers to kill them in front of his eyes. So they throw them in a boiling oil.

00:28:24--> 00:28:25

And Abdullah

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

was saying that when I see my friends were dipped into boiling oil, I saw their bones floating on the surface.

00:28:35--> 00:28:38

Their body was separated. So he cried.

00:28:40--> 00:28:53

When he cried he thought that he became weak. So the king brought him back to the court. He said Why are you crying? Are you ready now to become a Christian? He say no. So why are you crying? He said I cried. Because I remember one thing.

00:28:54--> 00:29:10

I remember that I've got only one soul. If you kill me once that said, so I wish to have 100 souls so that you can kill me 100 times and every time I will die for the sake of Allah of the law hidden whatever semi.

00:29:11--> 00:29:20

The King gave up on him. He can do anything. He can convince him anymore. He told him Okay, kiss my head, and I will let you go free. He said no.

00:29:22--> 00:29:44

And I called him this companion with the old respect the most stubborn companions ever. very stubborn, very firm, very strong. The King now is embarrassed, all the soldiers are watching that scene. Such a prisoner is in control actually, of the whole situation and the king with his palace with his power cannot convince

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

me. So he's using now different tactics. He told him kiss my head and I will let you go free. He said I will never even kiss your head. I will never even allow you to kiss my head. Can you imagine? He said okay, kiss my head.

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

I will let you go free and with you 60 of your companions is saying no.

00:30:06--> 00:30:10

When the king again Is it okay kiss my head please.

00:30:12--> 00:30:21

He started begging him, guess my head, I will let you go free and with you 120 prisoners, he said no. Okay kiss my hand

00:30:23--> 00:30:44

and I will let you go free and with you 300 prisoners, the whole lot, all the prisoners, he said, Okay. He agreed, and he went up to the king and he kissed his forehead, and the king allow him to go he and 300 of the Muslims and with them 60 concubines and he gets to go take them and go

00:30:45--> 00:30:58

on the way some people started talking about Abdullah, semi some people didn't like the fact that our blood know that Sammy had kissed the forehead of the Christian King, we talked about it, who heard about it

00:31:01--> 00:31:12

and he went in the crowd and he said by a law it is a duty upon every Muslim to kiss the forehead of how to live me and I will do it first.

00:31:14--> 00:31:21

Now can any one of you guess what in what is the homework? Anyone can guess? What is the homework that I want to give you?

00:31:24--> 00:31:25

Are you with me this inshallah inshallah I mean,

00:32:01--> 00:32:19

these are the examples which we should live up to. These are the role models that we should follow and obey. These are the role models that if we follow, we will remain steadfast. But if we kept on following actors, actresses, singers and so on and so forth, we will go nowhere.

00:32:20--> 00:32:31

We will we will have a different twisted mind. That is sometimes Muslims, sometimes not. Yo, yo, Muslims. Friday, Muslims, Ramadan Muslims.

00:32:32--> 00:32:37

Yeah, isn't it the fact? Isn't it the fact look at Omar

00:32:54--> 00:33:01

the alojado was the halifa. He was the leader of the Muslims. He was the president of the state.

00:33:02--> 00:33:06

So our pa wanted to know, where does he go?

00:33:08--> 00:33:22

He don't doubt about workers. He wanted to compete with him in goodness, that's it, you don't have bad thoughts like many of us, unfortunately, once you see something you know that you don't understand. Immediately, you will translate it into bad things.

00:33:23--> 00:33:39

La la la, la la la Samus. So he followed up one day, and he walked behind him until he saw abubaker sleep entering a house in the desert. So our hot tub hides behind a rock watching, observing.

00:33:40--> 00:33:55

Few hours later, abubaker so deep left and go. Then all entered the same house, and he saw a blind lady and her kids. After greeting her. He said, Who was that man that was here a while ago? She said, I don't know.

00:33:57--> 00:34:11

So she didn't know that he was the halifa. She didn't know that means what? didn't tell her who he is. So he said, What was he doing? She said, Every now and then this man will come clean my house. Listen, my brothers and sisters

00:34:12--> 00:34:17

He will clean her house. He will be the children. He will cook for them. He will wash for them. And then he will leave over.

00:34:31--> 00:34:37

asked the lady, do you give him any money for that? Do you give him any wage for this? She said no.

00:34:38--> 00:34:39

Then

00:34:41--> 00:34:42

00:34:43--> 00:34:47

He cried. And he went out and he said, Look I'm adopted.

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

You have made it very difficult for the leaders after you. You made it very difficult, because no leaders will do that. No leaders does that.

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

This require a high level of Eman leadership, consistency, humbleness, humility,

00:35:09--> 00:35:09

and

00:35:10--> 00:35:30

00:35:31--> 00:35:33

giving a bath to the camel.

00:35:34--> 00:35:37

And they asked what is the minimum? And he say me?

Nobody could believe. So they told him, don't you have servants to do this work for you? So he looked at them? And he said, Who among us are not a server? Who amongst us are not a servant? Don't you know that once you become a leader, you become a servant to the lead. Don't you know that? Come and give me a hand he told him come and help me now. He wanted to make them you know, humble as well.
