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

For tonight.

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

It is

00:00:08--> 00:00:09

and also an invitation

00:00:11--> 00:00:12

to see this big heart.

00:00:13--> 00:00:16

The heart of Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam.

00:00:17--> 00:00:19

The heart that was able to accommodate

00:00:20--> 00:00:21

all his companions

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

and makes everyone feel special.

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

As if that person that closes to him

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

salallahu alaihi wasallam.

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

And our story

00:00:34--> 00:00:36

is related to a man, a companion by

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

the name

00:00:37--> 00:00:38

of

00:00:50--> 00:00:53

and they live outside Medina.

00:00:54--> 00:00:56

You know where is Masjid Quba today?

00:00:56--> 00:00:57

Around that area.

00:01:00--> 00:01:02

It's was known not long time ago, those

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

who used to go to Mecca in our

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

Medina,

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

like, 10 years ago or something like that,

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

it's called Masjid Al Jumu'ah.

00:01:10--> 00:01:12

It was known. It was now removed

00:01:13--> 00:01:15

with the new road that the expansion that

00:01:15--> 00:01:15

they made.

00:01:16--> 00:01:17

That's their areas.

00:01:18--> 00:01:21

Anyway, he used to lead and to pray

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

to lead his people and to pray with

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

his people. They have the Musallah that they

00:01:25--> 00:01:28

pray. And when the Jumu'ah comes, everybody come

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

to the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam masjid.

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

But in the daily prayers, they they they

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

pray there.

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

So

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

he became

00:01:39--> 00:01:43

My sight became weak. I can't see properly.

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

There is a valley between me and the

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

play of the Musa Allah, the Masjid. When

00:01:54--> 00:01:57

the valley filled with water, flood with water,

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

I can't cross it and I can't see

00:01:59--> 00:02:01

properly, I can't get my way around.

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

So

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

he decided to pray at home.

00:02:07--> 00:02:08

But before he prayed at home

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

he had this wish in his heart.

00:02:15--> 00:02:17

I want to take a masjid and place

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

of salah in my house.

00:02:19--> 00:02:21

But I want the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

sallam to pray there first

00:02:24--> 00:02:25

then I pray afterwards.

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

I want the first one to pray in

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

this

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

is the Prophet

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

So he goes on Friday pray with the

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

Prophet

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

He prayed Jumuah with the prophet

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

Then he told the prophet what I just

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

told you.

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

Immediately

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

told him,

00:02:50--> 00:02:52

Afar. No problem, Insha'Allah

00:02:52--> 00:02:52

I will.

00:02:55--> 00:02:57

And Insha'Allah of the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa

00:02:57--> 00:02:59

sallam is not like my inshallah.

00:03:00--> 00:03:02

You know, when you say inshallah, I mean,

00:03:02--> 00:03:03

it's not gonna happen.

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

You know? When somebody tell you, will you

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

do this? Tell some

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

You know? And he chased you for years,

00:03:11--> 00:03:13

and he keeps saying inshallah, inshallah, inshallah.

00:03:21--> 00:03:24

How fast respond? How he fast Yeah. His

00:03:24--> 00:03:27

response was so bad. In the day before

00:03:27--> 00:03:28

Duhar, on Saturday,

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

Nabi

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

knocking on his door.

00:03:33--> 00:03:36

And with him, guess what? Abu Bakr and

00:03:36--> 00:03:36

Umar.

00:03:39--> 00:03:39

Eitzban

00:03:40--> 00:03:43

was surprised by how fast the prophet wasallam

00:03:43--> 00:03:45

coming and he wanted to imagine how

00:03:46--> 00:03:48

special that made him.

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

Anil Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam the first thing

00:03:51--> 00:03:52

he walked to the house,

00:03:55--> 00:03:57

Before we sit down where do you want

00:03:57--> 00:03:58

me to pray?

00:04:01--> 00:04:02

Here. Then goes

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

and Ijban call his family

00:04:06--> 00:04:07

to pray behind the opportunity.

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

He called his family to come to pray

00:04:09--> 00:04:10

behind the prophet

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

So the prophet led Ishband

00:04:13--> 00:04:15

and his family and his companion

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

in that spot that he wants to take

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

as a

00:04:20--> 00:04:22

in an spacious area in his house.

00:04:23--> 00:04:24

And in

00:04:24--> 00:04:25

after he finish,

00:04:26--> 00:04:27

about to leave

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

We have to honour you as a guest.

00:04:46--> 00:04:48

It's like a so soup

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

a soup that it is made of wheat

00:04:52--> 00:04:55

and a lot pieces of meat. It's one

00:04:55--> 00:04:55

of

00:04:56--> 00:04:57

the low grade

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

kind of food, any very

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

basics only very poor people eat this kind

00:05:02--> 00:05:04

of food in Madinah at that time. Poor

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

man's who.

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

Poor man's who.

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

So he

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

said, bring

00:05:15--> 00:05:15

it.

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

Waiting for the food to be ready.

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

Everybody in the tribe heard

00:05:29--> 00:05:31

that were at its man's house.

00:05:33--> 00:05:34

People will start gathering.

00:05:36--> 00:05:39

Until a good number of people gathered.

00:05:39--> 00:05:41

Then in Nabi Sallallahu alaihi wasalam talking to

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

them and who is missing? Who is that?

00:05:43--> 00:05:45

Fakal Rajul.

00:05:48--> 00:05:50

Who is missing? So somebody said,

00:05:51--> 00:05:53

I don't remember right now. He mentioned

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

He's missing.

00:06:11--> 00:06:14

He said You Rasulullah, he's a hypocrite and

00:06:14--> 00:06:15

he don't worry about him.

00:06:16--> 00:06:17

Said

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

with a firm tone,

00:06:35--> 00:06:36

The prophet respond

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

with a very firm tone. He said, but

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

this man bear witness that

00:06:43--> 00:06:46

And Allah have forbid the the hellfire

00:06:46--> 00:06:47

to touch

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

the skin or the body of someone who

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

would say

00:06:52--> 00:06:55

I testify not say, I testify that Allah

00:06:55--> 00:06:57

is the only one worthy of worship and

00:06:57--> 00:06:59

he doing this seeking the reward from Allah

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

sincerely.

00:07:03--> 00:07:05

Another man or the same man.

00:07:14--> 00:07:15

Then he said,

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

this man

00:07:17--> 00:07:18

we know,

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

we only see him friend

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

and hang out with the hypocrites.

00:07:24--> 00:07:27

He only have a good relationship with them.

00:07:27--> 00:07:29

He talked to them. He visit them. He

00:07:29--> 00:07:32

socialize with them. He's with the hypocrites.

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

Then

00:07:38--> 00:07:39

in

00:07:39--> 00:07:40

the peace all repeat what he said.

00:07:51--> 00:07:53

He says, La ilaha illallah and Allah will

00:07:53--> 00:07:54

not

00:07:54--> 00:07:55

let the hellfire

00:07:56--> 00:07:58

touch someone who bear witness that Allah is

00:07:58--> 00:08:00

the only worthy of worship if you're saying

00:08:00--> 00:08:02

it for the sake of Allah.

00:08:03--> 00:08:06

And the gathering ended right there.

00:08:09--> 00:08:11

This story, there is so many lessons

00:08:13--> 00:08:14

to reflect upon.

00:08:14--> 00:08:16

And I just give you the lead

00:08:18--> 00:08:19

and you

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

think more deeper about it.

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

One of the social change that we have

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

in our days today.

00:08:35--> 00:08:35

Generosity

00:08:36--> 00:08:38

is not any more generosity in our culture.

00:08:39--> 00:08:42

Generosity is the cliff as we say. Generosity,

00:08:42--> 00:08:43

it became burden.

00:08:45--> 00:08:47

Yeah. And if somebody wanna be generous, he

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

feel it's a bird. Generosity in general a

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

bird, but I I mean that literally a

00:08:51--> 00:08:53

bird. Yeah. I mean, you wanna invite people

00:08:53--> 00:08:55

to the house, it's a bird. It's a

00:08:55--> 00:08:56

work for a whole week. You have to

00:08:56--> 00:08:59

bring maids and you have to bring and

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

you have to make, you know, oh, that's

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

not enough. I have to make 10 different

00:09:03--> 00:09:05

type of food. I have to make this

00:09:05--> 00:09:06

and I have to make that. I have

00:09:06--> 00:09:07

to invite everybody. If I wanna give you

00:09:07--> 00:09:09

a gift it has to be a big

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

deal of a gift. If I have to

00:09:10--> 00:09:12

do it has to be big thing.

00:09:15--> 00:09:18

Somebody yesterday made me so happy. He said,

00:09:18--> 00:09:20

Sheikh, I want to gift you something. I

00:09:20--> 00:09:22

said, wow one like gift. He made me

00:09:22--> 00:09:25

so happy with the gift. The gift was

00:09:25--> 00:09:26

pickles.

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

He said, I have pickles for you.

00:09:30--> 00:09:31

I said, yeah,

00:09:33--> 00:09:33

salam.

00:09:34--> 00:09:36

You feel the you feel this generosity,

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

you give the simple it's not about big

00:09:40--> 00:09:42

things. Oh my god. I have to no.

00:09:42--> 00:09:45

What happened when this social norm changed?

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

We're not generous anymore. We don't invite each

00:09:47--> 00:09:49

other anymore. We don't give each other gifts

00:09:49--> 00:09:50

anymore.

00:09:51--> 00:09:53

Why? Because it has to be big things,

00:09:53--> 00:09:55

has to be valuable things. So what happened?

00:09:55--> 00:09:57

It became less and less and less and

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

less versus old days it was upper. That's

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

why the man did not have a problem

00:10:03--> 00:10:05

to invite the prophet over something

00:10:05--> 00:10:06

poor man's

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

He lived 50 years after the prophet

00:10:20--> 00:10:22

sallallahu alaihi wa

00:10:22--> 00:10:23

sallam.

00:10:23--> 00:10:24

He's

00:10:26--> 00:10:29

still telling the story, I'm proud of it.

00:10:29--> 00:10:31

After he became rich type, in that time

00:10:31--> 00:10:33

he was poor. After Allah and he became

00:10:33--> 00:10:36

rich, he did not feel shame that he

00:10:36--> 00:10:37

was poor and he gave this

00:10:43--> 00:10:45

We always say that you give from what

00:10:45--> 00:10:46

you have.

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

Something I need to reflect upon. There is

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

a lot more than this point but the

00:10:50--> 00:10:52

main point. Another point to see

00:10:55--> 00:10:55

how

00:10:56--> 00:10:57

the have this

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

full access to the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa

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

sallam.

00:11:02--> 00:11:02

Sometimes

00:11:03--> 00:11:04

he feels shame of himself.

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

When people ask him to come to this,

00:11:07--> 00:11:09

to visit me, do this, I

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

have this, I have that, you know, talk

00:11:11--> 00:11:13

to my secretary, tell my

00:11:13--> 00:11:15

You know there is a lot of like

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

distance and you feel it's become so hard

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

to access people especially

00:11:20--> 00:11:22

I'll tell you something, if you want to

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

be a leader you have to be accessible.

00:11:26--> 00:11:28

If you wanna be a true leader in

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

any in your job, in your work, in

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

your in your in your business, in your

00:11:33--> 00:11:35

community, in your country, you have to. That's

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

why you see all these elected officials, they

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

have to be accessible.

00:11:40--> 00:11:42

And and and I will say this if

00:11:42--> 00:11:44

you want to be a leader inside your

00:11:44--> 00:11:46

house to have to be accessible to your

00:11:46--> 00:11:46

kids too

00:11:47--> 00:11:49

and easy to be approach and you know

00:11:49--> 00:11:52

when you've been approach also you are available.

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

With all what he has, he answer his

00:11:55--> 00:11:57

call just to go to pray to work

00:11:57--> 00:11:57

on his house.

00:11:59--> 00:12:00

And needs the distance.

00:12:01--> 00:12:02

He goes all the way. And guess what?

00:12:02--> 00:12:03

Next day,

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

action.

00:12:07--> 00:12:07

Absolutely.

00:12:08--> 00:12:11

That's what you call yes, man.

You know some people have this face yes

He is a yes man. You know when

00:12:17--> 00:12:19

you approach him you're gonna say yes. People,

00:12:20--> 00:12:21

00:12:24--> 00:12:25

Don't approach,

00:12:25--> 00:12:27

00:12:27--> 00:12:27

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

friend about somebody we know.

00:12:39--> 00:12:41

He said, he make you slide.

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

You will never get anything out of him.

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

He will let you go on empty hand.

00:12:45--> 00:12:46

He will never give you what you want.

00:12:46--> 00:12:47

Anyway,

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

another thing to reflect upon,

00:12:55--> 00:12:56

I will then,

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

quickly something to reflect on between my main

00:12:59--> 00:13:01

point. My my the point that quick to

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

be said.

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

People from all time

00:13:09--> 00:13:12

have fascinated about putting you in a box.

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

Is a hypocrite

00:13:15--> 00:13:17

but nobody ask you anything, nobody

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

did not ask anything about this but there's

00:13:19--> 00:13:21

something in people in nature.

00:13:21--> 00:13:24

Oh, he is this group, he is salah,

00:13:24--> 00:13:26

he is Madriesh, he immediately willing to put

00:13:26--> 00:13:27

you in a box

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

and that's not a good attitude, that's not

00:13:29--> 00:13:32

a good akhlaq. I know it's something natural

00:13:32--> 00:13:33

in people and

00:13:34--> 00:13:35

common but that's not a good adab, not

00:13:35--> 00:13:38

a good etiquette to box people and put

00:13:38--> 00:13:40

them in frame and you have to find

00:13:40--> 00:13:42

a frame for them to put them in

00:13:42--> 00:13:43

that box and you start dealing with them

00:13:43--> 00:13:45

based on those. Because when you start doing

00:13:45--> 00:13:47

this, you judge people in a in a

00:13:47--> 00:13:48

very wrong way and you will never see

00:13:48--> 00:13:51

the good in them. But anyway, look at

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

the Prophet SAWALAM respond,

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

What surprised me the most,

00:14:05--> 00:14:06

how Nabi SAW defended

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

Malik ibn Jash by

00:14:09--> 00:14:11

saying that this man say

00:14:12--> 00:14:15

which is something every muslim say.

00:14:16--> 00:14:19

Did not mention something unique about Malik

00:14:21--> 00:14:23

And if you wanna know who's Malik in

00:14:23--> 00:14:23

the

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

The people of Badr, Allah says to them

00:14:34--> 00:14:35

whatever you do, you are forgiven.

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

The people of Badr all in Jannah. So

00:14:37--> 00:14:41

impossible to be hypocrite. And could easily said

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

he's from Ahl Badr. He impossible to be

00:14:44--> 00:14:45

a head worker.

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

Is the one that sent to destroy the

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

masjid of the hypocrites.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

The symbolic of the yeah. And he is

00:14:59--> 00:15:01

free from hypocrisy 100%.

00:15:05--> 00:15:07

Yet did not mention anything of that. He

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

said what? What we all share. You know

00:15:09--> 00:15:10

why?

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

Because sunnabi salallam want to teach us a

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

lesson

00:15:14--> 00:15:17

that what protect your arud, what protect your

00:15:17--> 00:15:20

honor, what protect your reputation. It doesn't have

00:15:20--> 00:15:22

to be something so special. It's enough to

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

be a Muslim. It's enough to say la

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

ilaha illallah. It's enough to be among the

00:15:27--> 00:15:28

Muslimeel and the mumineel.

00:15:28--> 00:15:30

That's enough. To

00:15:31--> 00:15:33

protect your honor, to protect your reputation,

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

to watch your tongue carefully before you talk

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

about someone.

00:15:38--> 00:15:40

I wish that lessons are learned today.

00:15:43--> 00:15:45

And will I have a lot in my

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

head to say but I don't wanna keep

00:15:46--> 00:15:49

you long. What are you doing? You

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

know? But but there is a lot to

00:15:52--> 00:15:54

be said a lot to be said about

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

how he was accused just because he has

00:15:56--> 00:15:57

a good relationship with the hypocrites.

00:15:59--> 00:16:00

And the reason I did not deny that

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

he

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

has

00:16:09--> 00:16:11

members of Al Khazrat.

00:16:12--> 00:16:15

And Nabi did not isolated the hypocrite.

00:16:20--> 00:16:22

It's it's it's a it's a genius how

00:16:22--> 00:16:23

the prophet

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

have

00:16:25--> 00:16:28

and he didn't allow the hypocrisy to grow.

00:16:28--> 00:16:30

It's 1 generation would die, died with it.

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

Today, see, I mean this is also nowadays.

00:16:34--> 00:16:36

There are a lot of people accused just

00:16:36--> 00:16:38

because they have a good relationship with people,

00:16:38--> 00:16:39

just because

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

because he doesn't have the same maybe political

00:16:42--> 00:16:43

position that you have, maybe he has another

00:16:43--> 00:16:46

approach, maybe there is so much to be

00:16:46--> 00:16:46

lessons from

00:16:56--> 00:16:56

but

00:17:01--> 00:17:03

This big heart, the heart that cares for

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

every member of his

00:17:04--> 00:17:06

community. I just can't imagine

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

Malik Abdul Jabez when he heard about what

00:17:09--> 00:17:11

happened, how the Prophet defended his honor and

00:17:11--> 00:17:12

his absence.

00:17:13--> 00:17:15

I just can't imagine how he felt, you

00:17:15--> 00:17:15

know.

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

Can you imagine if Nabi kept quiet?

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

I bet you anything that can push the

00:17:21--> 00:17:23

guy to to the man to go to

00:17:23--> 00:17:23

hypocrisy.

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

prophet sallallahu alaihi. Thank you very much.

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

prophet sallallahu alaihi. Thank you very much.
