smilla hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was so happy woman Wada, Oba Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Welcome to a new
episode or session
studying together the book of a zoo. minimalism worldwide and from the book of global Milan buyer has been handled by him a lot.
And the hadith of today who had the salad massage parlor originally ala Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam, Takada Rasul Allah do linea amen in either I mean to who have been Illa Well, I have been in ness, Carla's head with dunya you have book Allah was head FEMA in the nurse you have brokenness, or hypnagogia was Santa do who has
certainly been sad narrated that a man came to the or a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said, O Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, direct me to a deed which if I do it, I shall be loved I should I shall. I shall be loved by Allah, and by people. The Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam replied,
If you practice Zoo abstains in this world, or minimalism as some people translate it, and we talked about the concept of Zoos a lot before
Allah will love you. And if you abstain from desiring what people have, they will love you. This Hadith hypohidrotic him Allah said, related by imagine, and others with the good chain of narrators, or better than good, has an acceptable chain of narrator
is a very famous Hadith and was mentioned by the 40 Hadith to know your Rahim Allah as well reported by the manager will hack him in his mustard rock pile if his wife
and I have a comment on it been hijacked by him a whole last statement when he said and the chain of this hadith is hasn't
I think would have been
more accurate to say this hadith is hesson
this hadith is hazard and maybe that's what it does. And the copy that we have that is a mistake and it Why? Because this hadith
he said himself Rahim Allah reported by imagine what senator who hasn't it's not of this hadn't been magia hasn't and that couldn't be why because it's not even magic has a man has named Khalid bin
Rashi and remember they have your Rahim Allah said he's a liar. He makes up his teeth. He he basically lie while bar
that's how it happened. to him. Allah commented This is not in his commentary on mustard rockin Hatton and even I met an amendment Buhari. Remember missoura they said that this man is moon covered Hadith. His Hadith is absolutely rejected and unacceptable. And such person such person can be his narration. You can call the chain of generation you can call a person it's impossible.
Lima Rahim Allah this hadith was narrated to him. Then he said La ilaha illa Allah was surprised he La ilaha illAllah who narrated this hadith? He was like excited. Never heard of it before it sounds so beautiful, so profound. So they told him he had an inherited holiday. Porsche This is called the unconscious Howdy. Then he said we're gonna be hard or not hard, it is Oh, not hard.
And he remained silent as an holofil ll mentioned that and he was disappointed because that means this hadith is not valid. But this heddy have other narrations other than the narration of imagine Rahim Allah and because of these other durations, other the other is not in other books and reference of how to utilize and hakam and query and other if you
Bring them together. The Hanif will reach to the level of hassane will be acceptable. That's why no we are him. Allah said hasta la la considered Hassan and hate me since Hassan even chef Michel Barnier Rahim Allah also said this hadith is Hasson
but there is a difference between the Hadith is Hasson and the chain of narrators is hazard. Because you are judging a particular generators
that particular narrations in this particular generator, the magic and that generator or not, with the existence of holiday binominal policy cannot be judged as hassle in any way.
This holiday is so beautiful. So the man asking the prophets Allah about something if he does, or if he when you do,
Allah loves you, and the people will love you as well. You want both?
So nebby salam told him his head FEMA is head for dunya you have become law have observed in this dunya practice abstains in this world.
Practice minimalism as we've been saying, practice the concept observed which is leave the thing that it will not benefit you in the alpha allow logic.
This attach yourself from this union and also
don't be too attached to it. And the other one he said
his head female FDA did not abstain from desiring what people have
or what people have in their hands. And people will love you at this point.
There's many Pawan massada we can drive from this honey. Number one,
this hadith is talking about the virtue of
the virtue of
making sure that your heart when you look to the bottom of your heart, when you look at what's really you concern about the most will be Allah and the dollar, Allah and the hereafter, not the dunya many people what's really deep in their hearts, when you go through that layers of your heart, you will find what is inside their heart is the complete attachment to the dunya it's their business. It is their education, it's their, you know, body the Look there, you know, it's all materialistic things. That's what matters the most of them,
you know, and that's what they care the most about. You know, playing Rahim Allah Lattimore. Raghava fell in love with dunya you will not be completely
devoted to the Salah, unless you have observed in this dunya
then he said, and you will not have zuid in this dunya Yeah. And he this attachment
and abstain abstaining from it. That's not going to happen. Unless you realize two facts of no claim Rahim Allah said in Nevada, Nevada sahale. Number one, Nevada dunya was silver, it is a widely held milania that you realize the first part that this dunya is temporary, and it will be gone in no time.
And it is not. There is nothing in this dunya is a pure joy. Every joy in this dunya there is a hardship
with it. You want to be rich, you just don't get even if you get rich like that you inherited no money I know of a brother that I I know of him or I know him is a good friend of mine.
His life I know him for about 10 years, okay? His life is very simple. He drive, you know, simple car. He's not this kind of fancy. He knows that his father was a rich man.
But the day his father or after his father died, when the inheritance was divided. He inherited over Yanni, I would say definitely over $100 million.
All his all of a sudden.
You see, so even when he became rich like that, do you think that's a pure joy? No. Now he has to worry about how to maintain the money
where it's going to be spent on what's the rule in this what is the rule that what how can I purify it
It never comes to joy. One of the biggest joy in life is to love someone, to love your spouse to love your children, talk to your parents, to love your friends, that love is a joy. It's something so beautiful but at the same time it's not you know, you have to earn it you have to maintain it. You worry about this person to get them upset when you fight with them. You know, it's really upset you and when you when they die, it makes you feel sad. There's nothing 100% tell me what there's nothing in this dunya is just pure good.
We have been another Swan and CAD while was us, Yoko Rahim Allah was Danica zavod, wanting to talk and in the end, all these joys will come to an end.
You have to worry about it before you have it. Worry about while you're having it and you worry and you be sad about it after you leave it or it leaves you.
So that's number one. That's what help you when you realize this fact, this dunya is not as not worthy anymore. The second factor that you have to realize and to remind yourself of in order for you to achieve the car another in an era that you realize you look at
adonia every day, this life is leaving you behind.
In our hero is everyday coming towards you
know, realize this fact and realize that no dunia nothing can guarantee you that you will gain in it all the joys that you want. Or you will have what you want from it. But for sure you will have it
the hereafter in the next life for sure you will have it the good or the bad of it. You can escape it. There is no like oh maybe I will get it maybe not. No. Also he said and the difference between the joy of the ohana of the hereafter of Paradise when you meet the loss of my data and the difference between that rewards and joy and enjoyment and the joys and the enjoyment and your reward in this dunya is like you know you can even compare one year or two hi Europe
and Africa is higher higher as an indefinite and in lower Arab and Arabic language. When you put a word in indefinite like this higher, it means it is better from all aspects.
What not only it's better but also it remains
hierarchal ha kameena
It's perfect. And it is forever.
ever come to an end.
He said no paper have a lot. The more you think about these two facts, the more you realize these stupid that this dunya is short this dunya is leaving you this dunya is nothing and it no matter what you gain in it, it will not just a pure joy.
There's always suffering
in the process
versus the alcohol it is coming. It is your drone near to it everyday in your life. And it is for sure happening to you and the reward and the joy and enjoyment in it. It is much better from all aspects and it is forever.
abou Suleiman dharani and he's among the great Zoo had ascetics, said Tara for Elena facility Villa
fabinho Mancha, Azusa, tequila Cardenas, people differ what desert means? You know
what that means? Some people said a zoo it means that you don't care about meeting people or having many friends. Some people feed turkey Shahar to leave all desires.
Some said vitarka Shiva that you never fill your stomach with food.
Some said things near that are on that means then I will say Mandarin is a great environment this area specifically he said what I choose and I define Zoo
as the following free turkey my little cannula to avoid and to leave and to have no interest in anything can distract you from Allah.
Pilar Raja Raja Rahim Allah and what he said is an absolute truth and it is
The best definition for a zoo
Mohammed bin wasa is a great scholars. Somebody asked him give me an advice remind me give me an any say an admonition to me.
Them hum Ross I told him something interesting. He said, we'll see cat intercooler many confit dunya will ask you,
I want you to be always to aim to be king in this dunya. And next in the dunya. And in gentlemen, to be like a king, you know, can't be a king
in the dunya, and he said his head would
have served in the dunya
don't attach your heart to it.
be above it. And you will feel like a king
One of the benefits we would like one of the benefits we learn from this highly observed is one of the actions of the heart.
Remember, a lot of people think a zoo is the actions of the limbs is to wear no claws that is not very fancy to drive a car that does not fancy, you know to eat food, which is not, you know, well made or expensive or that's not Zoo Zoo to start from the heart. That's why all the finishing is talking about a zoo, which is basically when your heart is not attached to the dream. When your heart attached only to the thing that will bring you near to Allah
has no necessarily with what you do with your with your appearance or your look or No.
It is when your heart focus on a lot focus on what pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala no one else.
Among the meanings observed in this dunya and a lot of people wouldn't be talking about as
they think of wizard Yanni you have no interest in wealth and money and materialistic things, but also among the meanings of dessert that aroma talk about that you have no interest in something that is more can be more desire, or more desirable by the heart than wealth and money and gold and silver which is her booty acid, the love for fame and power and positions. And remember him Allah said that this is this desire can be much stronger than the desire of no sexual desires or the love for wealth on money.
That the love of being famous being known, you know, being in charge being always in the front line being always on the camera being always near name to be known. And that's very dangerous. That shows that this heart is not attached to the offer because this hearts attached to the dunya want the fame want the power and this Tony and his zoom in a zoo and that fame and power is one form of Zoo that is well it is very much needed.
this Hadeeth shows us that people loves you when they know that you have no interest in what they have in their hands.
Okay, which it shows you something very
true about people. People don't like those who ask them those who look at them over time. Those who want what they have.
That's why avoiding this will lead
will make them feel comfortable to about you. You don't consider a threat to them. That's why they will like you they will love you had some embosser Rahim Allah said something interesting he said let us carry him and Allah ness madam tuna, zero female ad people all will honor you and respect you as long as you know the threat to them and what they have.
But the moment they feel that is to have phobic will carry who hadn't acabado The moment you think that you're interested in what they have, they don't like you. They will push you away and give you an example.
If I know that you've come to me but you want to learn about my business so you can duplicate my business. You want to take my position. You know you want to do like me and you will became you know a competitor to me. I teach you today how to do this. And tomorrow you go do it and you became you know
As somebody who's competing with me, that naturally will make the person feel threatened by that person. And that will make him distance himself from you
So you know how to deal with people, and not to come as a threat to them
it's interesting, one of the benefits of this heading is to see these two year in the two examples.
when you ask them,
and when you insist, and when you look at what they have in their hands, they don't like you.
And the other hand, when you look at what Allah has in his hand, and you ask him for what he has, and what he owns, he loves you.
And yet you run after those and you leave them
Allah, Allah, He will be upset as at you if you don't pray to Him and ask Him
and human being will be upset at you and bothered by you if you keep asking them.
Can you imagine if there is someone? Any somebody calling me? I have a question here. Yes, I answer him. Then he another question here. Again, answer. Then in the night he called me again. He said, I have a question here. Okay, I want to ask you to do me a favor, okay. Did it tomorrow and how long after two three days? I said, What? Who gave you my number? That's right. I will be kind of upset and we all like that. That's the law, in law, WA llama.
Allah loves you to ask him in the night and in the day and in your schedule and in your Roku and after salah and in sight of the Salah. And every moment, never get bored by that. Never get upset by that.
Actually, he loves to help you.
He loves to see you. You know that turning to him? Because that's how much he loves you.
It's amazing, even the one that he loves you the most and can tolerate you the most your own parents. But my kids after they can ask me more than anyone else in the world. Definitely my kids can ask me more than anyone else in the world I wanna but my kids yeah Annie
push it on as a class. I'm done.
Yeah, you reach a level you do that but you tolerate them a lost battle and never will say I'm done.
Never said That's too much.
I hope that something that we will reflect upon.
Because just this one by itself,
it's really drive us to love him so much.
And to turn to him all the time. And I always say Allah goes door is open 24 hours, you can call anytime.
from this Hadith, we learn that an hour river be marketable la hulak Renan Warfield,
being content with what Allah has decreed for you, and provided for you, make you rich, even if what you have in your hand is little, but what you have in your heart is a lot.
because believe it or not, even when you have a lot in your hand,
but inside your heart, you're not satisfied. This thing that you have in your heart is little is nothing
because you're not content from inside. And when you became satisfied from inside, that's what zoomed in a dunion that and the result of that that you will look look at what people have in their hands and that will make people loves you.
Why, another point here? Why observed in the dunya makes Allah smart Allah loves you.
Why this will lead to the loss of love. Because if you have observed in the dunya that means you focus on the things that will bring you closer to Allah will benefit you in the so that means you will focus in your body that means you will focus on the good deeds, the thing that Allah loves, which is all the act of Fortune
When you do the things that Allah loves you receive His love
that's why the process alum are that what it means when you have a lot matara loves you
even though it may be so solemn said don't look at what people have in their hands on don't have that kind of distance yourself from people you don't need to attach your heart to people that it doesn't mean that you're not allowed to ask for help. Like you can ask for help.
If you deserve as a cat or you deserve or you help somebody to help you to pay your debt, or somebody or you ask for a loan from someone, okay, in Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam he is the best czar had in the dunya that's right as I think we all agree. But yet in Ibiza, Salah took a loan from someone
and he's allowed his alum
Yeah, and he
put in not took a loan or he took he put his shield as collateral
for you know, for borrowing, few or handful of borrowing
is so hombre de la to clones.
And it's not harm or wrong. When you need it, you can have
this Hadeeth shows you that the Sahaba said something that will make me loved by people. That means that the concept itself is not a bad concept. It's actually a good thing. And Muslims should care to be loved by people.
The point is like people's that I don't care. No, it's not trying. You should look for the thing that make you loved by people.
You should not do the thing that make you hate by be hated by people.
You should care about the thing that will make you loved and appreciated by people.
And one of them is a search for mfe at NASA that you have zoomed in what they have in their hand.
There is no good
to be loved by people and hated by Allah. That's why the man was very wise. He said I will be I want to be loved by Allah and loved by people.
Because there is a lot of people what they do, they do their best to be loved by people to be popular.
And if even if this in the expense of this pleasing Allah subhanaw taala
that's wrong. That's absolutely not correct, and dangerous route to go to.
So from this is one thing that we learned from this study that the person cared to be loved by a lot and loved by people. Because there's no good to be loved by people and hated by a loss panna cotta or the last one is displeased with you.
I love also from this is one of the better from this Hadith, the question?
And that's a great question jasola Show me thing that will make me love by people a lot love by people.
This is beautiful. And I wish that when we ask questions, we try to ask the questions that are beneficial. And it kind of give us help us to live our life in a very general and guide us. Sometimes people ask about things that are relevant. People ask about people and about Oh, what do you think of so and so what do you think of person did this and that that have said that? And there is no much benefits in these kind of questions.
Will you look for the question that it is will benefit you and bring you closer to Allah subhanaw taala it will help you to be a better person as we care to you. You should care about asking the question that it will help you to
improve yourself spiritually, socially, and all areas. final point that I have
that from this study, that
it is important for us to maintain a good relationship with the Lord with the creator and with the creation.
It is important for us to try to win both. It's not either one of them. This or that no we can wimble we can work on both line. It's important for you to have a good relationship with Allah by being a true worshiper.
But also with people by having an having a good character traits.
Next, we'll talk about which is uncited that we will pass over the Allahu anhu Kira, Samia Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a boon in the lives of him we'll add that tequila Danielle coffee.
Southern will pass over the Alon said I heard a last message of salatu salam saying Allah loves the pious
Rich Lonnie maxon who is
huffy is the one who hide his good deeds is free from showing off or hypocrisy. Okay?
So these three loves to see these three qualities in his sermon at the pay a person who's pious of taqwa and I'll honey The one who is self sufficient and I'll happy Oh honey also means self sufficient or
Also, Oh, honey means the one who's independent. Oh, honey, mustard, honey, honey nuts, the one who doesn't need people self sufficient. And the one who has no interest in what people have in their hands because I'm, you know, I'm good.
I'm not always looking for people to help me or to
give me so and the third one. uncomfy is the one who is not to be not to care to be popular and to lie and he's showing off or she's showing off and or free from showing off or hypocrisy.
And this headed reports by Nima Muslim Rahim Allah from Ammar Ibn salud, he said, kind of size of Nebula of Casa de la siberie. Of course, he was in the desert, camping outside the city with his camels were herds that he owns.
Even Omar came to him
when he saw someone coming and riding coming to his cam, which is far away so I said oh the villa him in Charlie had a rock Yala protect me from the evil
that this rider bringing, if there is any evil, let's just bring it to me. Protect me from it.
Anyway, when the person arrived, who hasn't been no model of their law. Welcome him.
And he came to southern US. Obviously he has a message or has something that's why sad was disturbed when he saw been coming
for Karla and as LTV Eb liko of annemiek what are the NASA 10 as their own al mulk ebina home
you're here with your camels and goats and sheeps. And you left people
fighting over the leadership of Muslims.
You're here with these camels on to take care of them while people back in the Medina are fighting over or debating and seeing who will be the leader.
Then seidner Pass bada bada boom v sada shadow pass had an anvil on his chest like this is it Oh sorry. I shouldn't do that.
He basically he tapped on Omar's
chest and he said this could
Or don't talk.
I heard the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Allah loves
the servant of his who is Paice rich and dependent.
No interest of what people have and he's happy with Allah Fie, the one who doesn't like to show off us, you know, a free from showing up free. He doesn't want to be famous. He was he just you know what, by himself. It's enough that he's known to Allah.
In another word set up by saying, I'm happy to be here with my camels, nobody knows who I am. I don't care about this, you know, fighting over who will be the rulers and all this debate and who will rule the world. That's
Not something I'm interested in. Because you know, Santa Claus is a qualified to be the Hollywood qualified to be the leader.
And here, when the price of money as I said levina, when an FC another rich doesn't mean necessarily has a lot of money, but whatever he has, he's very content with it. And he's very happy and satisfied with it.
And because you feel so satisfied with it, it looks like a lot.
That's why the word Divina and you don't need others, a coffee in a coffee hiding, which it means someone who hide his a bad, someone who's
don't show off for this ibadah somebody who doesn't like to be known, and people mentioned his name and to be famous. That's not a goal. Fame can happen to you, but you should not be seeking it. And that's something I found, it's very hard for a lot of people to a concept for a lot of people to grasp in social media time and era today. Because fame is meant for itself.
And I want to say something, but I hope that
people will open their hearts and mind to what I'm about to say.
I found that one of the schepens trek
that I do believe
it was able to trick Some even if they do Act, the activist on the Muslims
student of knowledge and at least in the West, and even in the Middle East in the Muslim country, that convinced them that seeking fame is okay because you can use this for our purpose.
And after a while
seeking fame is became not a means became a goal.
And that's very dangerous.
I do believe fame will come.
But you should not be seeking it.
No, there is people.
Any I don't want to give an example. Because all these examples are really disturbing. Like, want to be like famous and want to be linked to be talking about, you know,
to the extent that I heard some people go into others hiring them, I said, I want you to make me the most important figure in Houston. And the Muslim community. I wanted to put a plan for me to make everybody knows about me in Houston.
And that's even though some people trying to justify for good intention. But I found that that's a very, very tricky and very slippery slope.
And if you look at the Hadith and levies of Salam and the Messiah, the advisor the setup, it is there is way more number like there's so many of them warning people from seeking fame
and that's was not from nothing.
It's a very, very dangerous route.
Fame it comes doesn't mean I got like 300,000 peoples on my Facebook, it doesn't mean you're not going to be famous. Let me cancel 200,000 out. That's not the point.
But the point is that you know what, what makes me famous controversal so I'm bringing any nonsense controversial issues just to became a famous person known
that became now goal
shows, that has many benefits, we can learn almost anything quickly before we end our thought. Number one
I made a bad that this had it focus on something that your focus is not to be known to people but to be known to Allah and that require from you to focus on the bad are more than to focus on people to focus on what pleases Allah than to focus on what make you pleased by people or to try to please people sorry.
So this honey shows you that Allah loves the deputy, the one he basically pious and focused on this and at the same times, huffy is not about being known to people but known to Allah
also you see the connection between Ronnie and huffy Ronnie, self sufficient one, it means content. One, it means you know, I'm happy, I'm satisfied that I have and happy it means someone was not looking to be famous and to be known. There is interesting connection because of what because if you have that content and that you know satisfaction and you are happy with who you are, and with your relationship with Allah, you don't any more looking and seeking fame and controversy and you know,
people to know your name and to know who you are
also, all huffy is the one who by himself
at telkwa, is so important to be
done in the time of halwa.
What I mean by that any, you have to have Taqwa when you are by yourself.
Because also alpha Judo happen when you are by yourself. And then for June you are by yourself is worse.
Those who are a Chapin's enemy in public, but they are his best friend and secret are the worst type of people.
taqwa should be in public and should be also when you are by yourself.
Part of a taqwa that you don't desire. And you seek that fame and showing off and no people to know about your deeds. That's against the concept of double.
One of the things that we learn from this hadith one of the levels of taqwa is our own sybilla. What makes people happy, what makes you not interested in mixing with people known by people on the fame and although what makes you have zoomed in these things, and you don't know if your concern is when you have an own sybilla What I mean by that you are satisfied to be with Allah being known.
To a loss of power to add on to the angels and to be with Allah is more beloved to you than being with people and being famous with people.
Also, this hadn't even talked about till half hour, which is not showing off not running after fame and position to be known. It doesn't mean that you don't participate in dow It doesn't mean that you don't give advice. It doesn't mean that you don't teach it doesn't mean that you don't, you know, participate in in defending people and standing at Salomon europass, he went for GRP civitella sadra past led armies Southern pass taught so Cass did all these things.
So, what how to deal with this, you deal with this when you see yourself became obsessed with fame?
known and fame is mean is something so important to you more than anything else. In this case, my advice is to leave the public arena.
And basic step back.
These three things if you have them. It will help you a lot to avoid so many sevens. Being pious having a tough one to fear of loss my data being almost self sufficient and content because you don't steal you don't cheat you don't lie. You don't go on to shady business and attack What did you always know knowing that a God conscious and if you don't show off, you don't have react? You don't mix is not about you being in front of people and people know you because a lot of sins happen because of that as well.
You know what? These three together I'll cover what duck Alena, if you have Taqwa if you're self sufficient content with what you have, if you're not showing up if you don't care about to be known to people and you know, and so forth. This will help you a lot to avoid a lot of arguing with people. Many arguments happen with people because of the lack of taqwa. We engage in this back and forth and and heated discussion. You know if we have a little tough what I will just avoid them. And number two, it happened also because
have, you know, you're always looking for people's approval, you know people to recognize you.
But if you have that arena, and you have that alpha, you don't really care about that.
It's, I don't care if this person you know, okay, I tried to explain to him even if he doesn't understand he doesn't accept a lot is more important to me.
Also a half hour one hour Lina, together, one of the reason for a loss of intellect to loves you.
This head is proof and the previous videos as well one of our last title as character traits which is love that Allah loves his creation. So factory logo, comb your hair boom a boon, Allah loves his British. Also, a southern Lucas did this when there is a fight there is
a dispute among the Muslim community at that time, the society so he avoided this division, avoided defeated and that's one of the learning things we learn from this hadith and the whole talk about alpha and avoiding people and avoiding gathering in the time of fit and when you can't control your reaction when the fitting is so strong that can mislead the person in this case you avoid you stay away from the lights from the spotlights. But again, remember you stay away from the spotlights but doesn't mean that you're not participating in what you are capable of doing like teaching or don't. But if you find yourself unable to protect yourself and to maintain your class you avoid completely
but you should struggle with yourself to maintain that class to maintain that top of you with this we come to an end
the explanation of the second honey today was solid la semana Vina Mohammed Muhammad inshallah next week well,
next week will be
Friday will be eight of her. Congratulation May Allah Allah accept from you. So will not have anything next week. It will be the week after inshallah to Allah wa Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
