00:05:59--> 00:06:05

They were extremely poor, to the extent that they don't have anything extra to offer these three young men.

00:11:29--> 00:11:39

sure enough he did. He went and he looked at the cup where his shares saved empty for have I never used or sold me the football

00:11:41--> 00:11:47

he said the profits are seldom raised his hand. I said to myself that said he's gonna curse me right now. I'm done.

00:11:49--> 00:12:23

Call out to spalla you can tell the next the next things he did. It shows you the T could not think properly. pile of I mean to Illa chef rotten egg I took a knife pocket knife with a hat.

Yeah Allah I asked you to provide food and drink for those who offer me food or drink.

00:12:25--> 00:12:39

So he said I rushed on the run to the sheeps, even though they're not as cheap as the province of some sheep and I start looking for one of them to kill it so I can bring that make the meat for him and bring it to him.

00:12:41--> 00:12:43

I've just added a mess Halle Allah as

00:12:44--> 00:12:50

I'm looking for the one has the best meet all of the sudden, unexpected things happen.

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

Hello fellow Mr.

00:12:54--> 00:13:21

To whom Telly out be lovely. To have that ionic jazz. I found his the sheep goat filled with milk. And if any one here knows a little bit about goats and sheep, if you milk them, he can't re milk them again you have to wait to the next day or you know a good like 12 hours or so in order for it to refill, you know

00:13:22--> 00:13:57

in order for you to be able to milk it again. But that was surprise. He said I not the milk and milk, three of them. And I got a lot of milk and a rush to the prophets. I said Yasser Allah here in nebby sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took it and he turned then in Ibiza Sallam asked him Did you already drink or this person now thinking that they were waiting for him until he comes? And now this is the first time to mocha? She like that's what you know, expecting. Then he said jasola just drink.

00:13:58--> 00:14:03

So he finished his share. Then he said and this said what about you? He said just drink.

00:14:05--> 00:14:45

He tried to avoid to answer the question. God forgot Aishwarya sola fishery Carla sugar three times until nuviza cinemas completely full. Then that starts laughing until he found the ground laughing in the visa sunlamp over the Prophet was looking at him why he is nothing so much like what is so funny. He said Janos Allah Assad but NIDA took jasola now that you're out you just said Oh Allah provide food and drink and and provision for those who provide for me. I got that because I just provided for you and I let you eat, drink until you become full

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

in the visa sullen smile and he said, What happened? So he told him what happened. And in the BSL Salam said that was a blessing from God. That was a blessing from Allah subhanaw taala and from his mercy that he made that you know,

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

goats have all this to be refilled again with milk, and we were able to drink. I wish that you have saved some to share with your friends. The then he said jasola Don't worry about them. They're sleeping the hand so much. You know, just don't worry about them. I don't worry about anything else as long as you are happy and pleased with me out also to Allah, clear the folder, the batoka will help him out or badly. Either or sub to her or, to him I come in asaba happiness doesn't matter. For me. It's not about saving food for myself or anything like that. No, it just, I'm happy that you were finally satisfying

00:15:40--> 00:15:41

this story.

00:15:42--> 00:16:24

Obviously, I'm not just here to tell you just share a story that happened in the past. But this story carries a lot of lessons for us. And a lot of meanings we can derive from the story and very practical lessons. Definitely one of the first thing that you see the bollock of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he made to add that may Allah bless these goats, and to be able to provide for us and it continued to provide for them every night, and even twice and that night and that particular night. You see the tin Nabil sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this has happened to them as a form of miracle. And what is so interesting that didn't have his assignment. That's an important

00:16:24--> 00:17:07

lesson for all of us. When this blessings happened to them when they were able to eat to drink the milk again, wouldn't it be so solemn said how to hire them Rahmatullah had an embolic, Atilla, this is from Allah, this is from God, this is from our Lord. This is from the mercy of Allah, for to us. And that's an important at attitude, that you don't think of yourself as the one who is the cause of goodness, and you forget about your Lord. And he said, this is from the mercy of Allah, that's from the blessings of Allah. If Allah provided you with money, were able to multiply your profits to be successful, you know, in any matter, make sure that you say thank you, thank Allah subhanaw taala

00:17:07--> 00:17:49

because it is from his from the blessings of Allah. And that's what make the person grateful and thankful to Allah, as we know should call the near man being grateful to the blessings of Allah, it means that you refer it to Allah that He is the one who caused the one who blessed you with it, that you always you don't deny a las panatela his role in providing that Blessings to you. And also to use these blessings in good and a good cause. And one of the way to be thankful to Allah, Allah for his blessing is to speak about these blessings that Allah subhanaw taala have given you will be near and mature or big ever had another lesson that you see a Sahaba of the Allahu anhu marva did not

00:17:49--> 00:17:58

live this luxury life. And I know that among our community, there is people poor there is people go to bed in the night, and they have no

00:18:00--> 00:18:46

and they don't have dinner, you know, and they don't have enough food to provide for their family. Not every night they can do that. And I know people make decisions over things either to buy food or to buy medicine or things of that nature. Yes. But it's still you see, this is so common in the time of the prophets of Salaam. They lived in a life of poverty. Later on a Lost Planet. Allah blessed them with a lot of money when the situation change. But what never changed is that attitude, their financial situation change, but what never changed and how grateful they are to Allah. how thankful they were to Allah, how humble they were, how you know, charitable they were, you know, this is only

00:18:46--> 00:19:28

increasing goodness. So don't ever let the change of your social status, economical status, change who you are as a good person. Also, we see that the Sahaba Lila and Omar bomb, these three went out for looking for someone to host them looking for someone to help them. When you are in need, you're allowed to ask for help, you're allowed to seek help from others. What's not allowed is to ask people for help. While you don't need the help, but if you need the help, you can ask and there is nothing wrong with asking. And that's why I don't never have a problem to ask for their help on our master detail. I never had a problem to ask for someone in our community when they are in trouble

00:19:28--> 00:19:59

and needs help to ask you for help. And that's something should be respected and if we can help we will help and as a community at Hall at all, as all. Also one of the thing that you see in the be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Yoni he's so forgiving. He was not like, Where is my share when he found his shirt is missing. Hey, what is that? What did you guys do with my food? No, he suppose he made two

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

Actually for them, he prayed for them. And I wish that this lessons can be, you know, especially among young people when they became so selfish, you know, like young kids even teach him from the early age, you know, all that they ate my food or somebody's hunger. And, you know, I remember when I was in college days were in dorms. So we have one fridge, for the whole entire group who lives in that apartment, we're living together. And you know what, at one point, everybody started writing on their food, you know, don't touch with a, bla bla bla, then we decided to became socialists.

00:20:40--> 00:21:10

We decided to say, You know why there's no such thing as my food. You know, if it is eaten from it, I understand that, but if it does, actually never made it, even a fight over it, and we all come together, you know what, I'm happy if you eat the food, you know, I'm not going to be upset if it's, you know, I'm hamdulillah. And believe me, I can tell you from personal experience. And just as for the record, I'm very anti socialist ideologies. So, but this was just a joke.

00:21:12--> 00:21:24

But I can tell you the amount of happiness that we had as a group and I still remember that and call it when I found like my coke or Diet Coke or whatever Pepsi was

00:21:25--> 00:22:05

consumed by someone else for my friends was much happier, we're lucky in many times, then you yourself eating it, or drinking it. Just tried to share with others and to learn how to share the fail. And you'll see how beautiful this is. You know, when you cook food and you feed people, it will be more delicious. In your taste, you taste the the sweetness and deliciousness of this food. Even you didn't even yet put it in your mouth. Also, one of the thing that you see how in the Bissell Solomon market that was like a servant with the profits or salad for the process, Well, certainly pieces of music are out for them, even someone work for him as a servant, he makes to

00:22:05--> 00:22:38

offer him he respected, he shared me with him. That shows you that you know what, unfortunately, there is people are too arrogant, too busy, to pay attention to their own family members, to their kids to spend time with to go down to the level and to be with them and talk to them. It is important for the people who work with you, or work for you to be close to them to treat them such way. You need to make out for those who serve you. Many times we forget, you know what, sweetheart? That was a beautiful meal today. Thank you.

00:22:40--> 00:22:42

You know, when your wife tells you that,

00:22:43--> 00:23:05

okay, or you tell her that when you make it will she make the food for you. So what I'm saying is sometimes we forget about that other than maybe sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had and I'm amazed Indonesia seldom used to make draft for those who provided for him. He made draft for them while they are providing for him. And he makes out for those who in future will provide for him

00:23:07--> 00:23:11

which shows you a drop play a major role in the profits on Sutherland life.

00:23:13--> 00:23:44

Another etiquette you learn from your Prophet Muhammad, Hassan, when you come to a group of people or a group where people sleeping don't make not too much noise in the business someone will make a salon with a lower voice he will not wake up the field that some people Mashallah turn on the light, you know, slam the doors, slam the drawers, he no the phone, you know, you sleep next to your spouse, while they are like they have this like when you punch the

00:23:45--> 00:23:58

the numbers 10 times, then like somebody's sleeping next to you, you know, just don't do too much, or don't make too much noise. the respect of other people feeling doesn't matter, young or old.

00:24:00--> 00:24:04

close to you or guests Be respectful and mindful of people around you

00:24:05--> 00:24:16

also see how the prophets or sunlamps companions were so scared like that was so scared that the person will make against him that he will pray against him.

00:24:18--> 00:24:22

You might say, Sure, how can we relate to this today? I'll tell you.

00:24:23--> 00:24:32

You still today. Today, in March 2021, you still can receive the dirt out of the process and I'm against you.

00:24:35--> 00:24:51

There are certain things that process on the midterm against certain people. And that will continue until the day of judgment as he made for some people and that will continue and whoever do this individual solomid for him, he will receive the drought of the processor and the prayer of the processor.

00:24:53--> 00:24:58

For instance, for instance the process and then pray against those who treat their parents disrespectfully.

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

Who don't treat their parents good. He prayed against such people pray against such people who cheat who betrayed

00:25:08--> 00:25:11

who terrify and terrorize their neighbors.

00:25:14--> 00:25:43

He says there is many people the process Allah had made prayer against stealing from others. So make sure that you have the same attitude of that which is you are worried about receiving the death of the promises against you. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us from all the bad deeds and any period purify us with the best of a flap manners. akuto Mr. Mehta Mustapha Allah you are a competitive you

00:25:47--> 00:25:51

have him De La Hoya de la Salatu was Salam on me, Lana Viva, who about

00:25:52--> 00:26:16

one of my favorite lessons from this story is how the shade bond mislead us and justify things for us. Oh, give you all this rational justification. I'm sure he found food he is late tonight. He might be held with his friends and ate with them what the process we need your food or need that man see he made it. He justified it for him.

00:26:17--> 00:26:41

And what's interesting, you have to understand she was not going to tell you you know what he know he will rationalize things for you make it so rational, make sounds good. make sense to you until you fall in his trap. So be very careful from the shape and whisper if this is not allowed, not allowed. If this is immoral, it's immoral. And this is wrong, it is wrong. Just don't listen to all these kinds of justification to do what is wrong.

00:26:42--> 00:26:53

What's wrong is going to stay wrong. And it's better for you to do it while it's wrong than to justify it. Because if you start justifying it, you will never repent from it you will never go back.

00:26:54--> 00:27:01

But if you realize that this is wrong and I'm just doing it out of weakness, inshallah, one day that is a good hope for you to quit.

00:27:02--> 00:27:15

You know, somebody say, you know what, smoking is not that bad. You doctors just to making it difficult for us. You know, my smoking is good. You know, you're never gonna quit smoking.

00:27:16--> 00:27:48

But they know how bad it is. I will one day eventually. One more thing what I love about this also, I she is so nasty. is so evil, that he makes you fall into the sin, then he make you regret. And he starts telling you Oh, now he's gonna pray for you. Now he take you one step farther. So you know, just be careful Don't ever think you do. He is an enemy to you as Allah subhana wa Tada. So,

00:27:49--> 00:27:51

finally, I will do

00:27:54--> 00:28:06

two quick points. I have several but I will end with two quick ones. Number one that inner be sallallahu Sallam said to him Why didn't you call your other two friends to come to

00:28:09--> 00:28:16

Yanni I love this being considerate of other people's need. It's not only about you,

00:28:17--> 00:28:27

I want you to think if you have that beautiful moment of joy, think about your family. I wish that individualism said I want to share with me in that meal

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

he remembered how do

00:28:31--> 00:28:42

you know remember your family in a moment of happiness remember your neighbors your community you know be be mindful of the people around you and their needs

00:28:43--> 00:28:59

that selfish life is not good it's very short and it's very narrow but when you love for something bigger than yourself and for good the chair by many others live is so white and very different

00:29:01--> 00:29:01

finally

00:29:03--> 00:29:16

and I'm sure you guys can come up with a lot of other lessons as well. That didn't have be some allow to sell them I love the fact that when he comes from outside he was stopped by to rock out to pray then he will go eat

00:29:17--> 00:29:59

his power lay on your a dummy bad that's a lie behind NFC he put forward the worship of Allah tala over food over following his own desire. It's a good habit when you go to house your home. You pray to like our first go to the ministry pray to rock out first before you start in the meeting is even if you have the Lord blessed you with a place that you work out and your workplace and you have a private place and you arrive in the morning you start with Dwarka then you start with the dunya or before you go you start praying to like I then you go you make the dean before the dunya after or before Lula the hereafter before the dunya mail las panatela you're a bit of alumina after all your

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

alumina

00:30:00--> 00:30:38

For Bennett deep, my brothers and sisters I hope that this inspires to look at the CEO of the process of them and the story of the process Allah because there is many, many lessons to be learned. We asked the last panel dalla to make us among those who will gather with Muhammad Solomon the Day of Judgment, and to be with him into not a name and to make us among those who receive his shift a long time ago.
