smilla hamdulillah salatu salam ala rasulillah hora de Asahi woman Wada Habad welcome back after one week break for either of Ha. And I ask Allah Subhana Allah to accept from all of us or good deeds. And just as a reminder, we still in the eye Sharon held on the sacred month,
which is four months and the head judge of the month of the hedger that we are in right now and the next one which is Mohan are part of it, and these two months are sacred months very important month. And in obese a little Lost Planet Allah made them as one of the sign of a Lost Planet Allah that Allah subhanaw taala as rules must be honored during these months, and even Ambassador the Allahu anhand other said that during this month, the rewards are multiplied and the sin is also greater than any sin outside these months. To the extent that it was reported NAB best said, the sin is 100 time double
if it's committed during this month, so I asked Allah subhana wa tada to help us to continue to good and to help us to abstain from the harm along
the hadith of today. Hadith Abu huraira Allah Anwar Alba and its famous Hadith parlimen Hosni Islam and Mark Taku mera Yeah, I need that the Herero Viola underrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
a sign of man's good
observance of Islam. His piety or the most the person's piety is to keep away from that which does not concern him to keep away from that which does not concern him.
This Hadith reported by tirmidhi, who graded as Hadith has,
as you see this head it is very relevant to the concept of minimalism and zoekt. Because we've been saying this over and over again, and I hope by now you guys memorize it, as Zoho Torquemada m ferrovie.
It's to avoid what will not benefit you in the era and then what is to leave what can what can harm you in the world what are Taku mapa jovoto filosofia So, if hazard is about abstaining and staying away from what will not benefit you in the ophira definitely abstaining and staying away from from which does not concern you is part of dessert because it was not going to benefit you in this live or the hereafter.
That's something you should avoid and you should abstain from it. And that honey shows you also the the level of observed as a high level of impact the person who practice this I mean Hosni Islam among the sign of
good piety or assigned man's good observance of the religion. This had been reported by tirmidhi
but the copy that we have from eternity it does not really say that it turned me they said it just hasn't it says that it turned me this said this is a very
it's a very and that's exactly how about Raja Rahim Allah in His equation of 40 Hadith and no, he said a tournament he said it's a very and also there is a great imams name use of him and Abdul Rahman and mizzi famous scholar of howdy before been handed to him a lot also when he reported this hadith he said that it turned me the senate sorry
so it's kind of strange Oh, hurry that even huddled here said autonomy they said it does happen.
Because this hand is more closer to be a honey then
but in any case, and Hadith reports is also by even magic, but it's not magic this week has already had been Abdur Rahman, and his mongkol Hadith is, is rejected as a Medina busara.
And Hadith also was narrated, Mossad narrated
Marcel Marcel it means the successor say the prophets of Salaam said. So when the successor said, say, the prophets of Salaam said we know that the successor never met the prophets of Allah. To me, you might say Shia, what's the problem? Because what is between the successor and the processor, a companion? And all the companions are trustworthy. So what's the problem with most of it, it shouldn't be acceptable, because it doesn't matter. Not knowing who is the companion is? Yeah, that's true. But the problem is, that many of the time they even have the successors narrate a hadith from another successors. Then from the companions, or sometimes a successor from a successor
from a successor Tabby from Tabby from Thailand, the process of what would you do in this case?
That's why Allah him Allah said if there is one Tabby, one successor, known the team only narrate from the Sahaba his morsel is acceptable.
In any case, element Malik Rahim Allah reported this little morsel from an M Amazonia Rahim Allah and it came with a sad need
many different durations and by the own will find many narrations more cells. They help we know that this has a base, especially if these are very trustworthy Tabby
without going to details a llama Rahim Allah consider this heading is acceptable and
any v a doddle hazard. So
what do we learn from this howdy? How the Hadith some some of the aroma considered one fourth of Islam Jabu arrived beheaded with Islam. They said Islam is based on four a hadith. And this is one of them. And among those who said that and remember Buddha would suggest to him Allah had been handled hate him, he said
Belhaven is full Islam but what Islamic kulu have been hands on hate me, not even Hajj out of the one who wrote this another man's name been hydrolite me for a sharpie scholar said
he said this is not one fourth, it is half of the religion. And you can say even it is the religion, all of the religion, you can understand it from this heady. Because if you leave What does not concern of you, that means you will focus on what does concern you? What's concern you as what is worshiping a law and following the rules and doing the right thing. And what should not concern you is the harm and the code for lunch. So in other words, this head is really very comprehensive, you can understand the whole entire religion through this. Heidi, what are the four hided that in other words referring to one man can mean a villa he will you will after failure could have been earlier.
Also, whoever believe in Allen David dimensioned say good or remain silent over believe in the law and the Day of Judgment should be good to his neighbor whoever believe in the line the Day of Judgment should be good to his guests reported by
the second half detective Barrera as well. Mr. motoko Melanie, this Halle that we have then the third one Colin levy Salam Lata Bob Don't be angry and also the harinder Bahati and reported by a bureau the Allahu Allah wa and the fourth one headed by Hamza are heading to Abu Hamza Anissa, numerical the Allah and
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said like
he may bring up see you will not be true believer until your love for your brother what you love for yourself and this headed portable Bahamas and it looks like widowed and other we're talking about the ahaadeeth. That talking about mannerism, all that mannerism goes back to these four. These four. If you apply them you will cover this whole entire area and chapter in Islam. But Raja Brahim, I would love to add this honey that we have
today. Awesome. And we'll add that
this hadith is one of the most important principle when it comes to etiquettes and dealing with others. That's over 100 by Raja Rama Lhasa, and there is a great scholar by the name of Hamza cunanan, who said this hedis is one third of Islam. About Rahim Allah azza wa jal caramel jamnalal mahad in kathira this hadith is a very short, Hadith few words, but under these words, a great deal of meanings and guidance
and it never heard before the prophets or sublime any this advice
Never heard in that culture before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and remember sinanju Rahim online civil Salaam and explain to you a little moron he said something interesting he said this heady you should realize that this hadith covers up what what I found yeah and he covers a statement you should not say talk about things doesn't concern you know you should act I'll give you an example of acting
any sometimes you are in the driving the road and this is something bothered me a lot when I drive on ice like in the other side of the street that is accident or something of that order there is an accident people taking already the police and the fire truck there and everybody slowing down and checking it out and you know taking a saw picture or posting about yeah he's not your business just keep going
you know or you stop the car and you go watch it keep moving if it's not even Your help is not needed there is already held that is already attended by people who have taken care of you should keep moving that's not of your concern. So sometimes it's by actions, or by a statement sinanju Rahim Allah said this honey basically cover both
What do we learn? What's the principles that we learned from this heading? Number one
and Eman Marathi Lisa Allah de la jolla Haider, one the necessity for Islam or email that le man or Islam not one level,
multiple level that's why nebuta solemn said among the sign of good Islam,
good observers of Islam.
So that means that his people have their Islam his level, their Eman, their faith is level some higher than others. Some of them are good. Some of them are okay. Some of them are bad. So this hadith shows you that people are in various level.
Another benefit from this Howdy. This head it shows that Islam cares so much about manners, good manners, and cares so much about good conduct. And Islam cares so much about Muslims to have to be well mannered.
And that's something in Islam put so much emphasis on it. You know, the Hadith in the base of Solomon Eman ObiWan was a Bruna shorba Eman is 70 plus
branches, one third of these branches. Okay, focus on conduct focus on the manner and the etiquettes of dealing with one another if it's not more good manners, or your beauty as been said that earlier on the laquan said
a no man, no doubt in the bee sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
center comb operable committees in Madison Yokohama aha sulukim Allah, the closest to me in the day of judgment and the best among you and another word as well will be those who possess the best of manners, the better manners you have, the closer you are the processor the higher you are engender, the heavier your skill on the day of judgment as the process solemn said he said such as pollution infinite consciousness is one of the heaviest things in your skill on the Day of Judgment is personal and be so solemn said acts are made in the national agenda. The thing that will lead many people are most of the people to intergender two things he mentioned one of them was follow good
manners. So in ob saw some of them saying that the better manner you have that better Islam that you will eventually or you will have or email you will have. So mean history Islam and MMA among the sign of good observes Islam good practice law, the good Islam and good man good faith that you have that you have good manners and one of it is to leave what is which is not as concerned of concern to you.
This head is obviously very straightforward, one of the benefit that you should not care about the thing that it is not of your concern and another word it will not benefit you in this dunya or in the hereafter.
Oh my god, this is just unbelievable.
The culture that we live in today in is all about concerning about things that doesn't benefit you in the danielda
Just think about it.
What's Tick Tock is all about
what's Instagram is about?
Most of the things in Facebook, Snapchat,
and social media,
you know, even news, magazines, people.
It's all about things.
It's all about the things that is what is your concern?
Oh, what did you eat? What did she wear? What they were what designer is that? Like all about things like this?
He can't divorce he got a dress. It just there's a whole there is a whole billions of dollars of business is based on that. The opposite of this.
There's people knows everything about athletes, basketball players, what he eats, what underwear he wear, what socks that he use? No everything. What's your concern of that?
You might ask? So what's the problem shareholders don't always the problem is when you are keybind your mind and your you have a limited time, and you have a limited capacity.
No matter how big it is. If you keep filling it up of things that doesn't benefit you, when you will have time to fill it up with things that will benefit you.
When you will have time to spend on the thing that benefits you.
That's why you will not find someone who's successful in their dunya and Dean care about these things.
These things have no the mediocres and the
the lack of better word for the losers.
It's what they care for.
also give us the indication of the prophets of Salaam asked us not to not to worry about the thing, which is, which is not of concern to us, that has also indicated that we should care about the thing that will benefit us. So as we don't care about the thing that doesn't benefit us, we should care about the thing that will benefit you and it will mushroom
and send you 10 maharana myinfo in the dunya, or on the other end this worldly life or next, and things related to religion, or things related to world and skills.
And that's very important that you focus on the thing that basically of concern to you or benefit you.
And by the way, this is a disease, those who focus on things that's not beneficial to disease. And it's one of the tricks of the SharePoint to block us from seeing what will benefit us to be distracted with things that will not benefit us.
There is people to spend hours into search, searching what type of dog was with the young men who stayed in the cave that the sort of gap the story of the cave and the and the young men who basically went to the cave and stayed there and a loss of Hannah to add up the new stay there for so many years. Then here is a record them. Allah said with them there were a dog or kind of dog.
You know, what type of dog what the color of the dog?
what it was called? Who cares?
Who cares what kind of dog?
Allah subhanaw taala said, do something about the ark of Noah. How many nails were there were screwed or just nailed and
were made of iron? steel, steel.
Copper, who cares?
When people start focusing on things like this, they will not it's not of their concern.
Chef? I said yes. He said, If I pray above the Kaaba, what should they face
I said honey bee, you didn't even go to the cafe. You didn't make an omelet? Or had you seen the cowboy in your own eyes.
Chef, if I go to the space, all these kind of things, where people imagine things that is not real. And that's also in some of the parts you need, are some people who related to the field came up with things that impossible
and focus on spending time on it. This is waste of time and waste of energy and waste of knowledge.
So it can be in the religion as well.
That's why Rahim Allah once was walking out of the message. So somebody stopped them and he said, Yeah, a man yet Juma Jude,
are they Muslims?
Or not? Are they supposed to be giving Dawa or not, as if the brother Mashallah planning to give them down to do my job? So run away from them? And all the believer?
then looked at him and he said, Son, what do you say when you leave the mustard? And he said, I don't know. He said, what do you what is this similar to say when he entered the mustard seed, I did not.
Ask about things like this.
Or would benefit you.
I was teaching once in California and never forget that. I was teaching a book by Sherman, if you met him a lot about last names and attributes. Man and I had this brother in front of me was focused, given looking at me, but I can tell in his eyes that he's somewhere else. So in the questions came
and he raised his hand his chair, I said, Yes, God.
if we imagine
an Islamic State started
who would you appointed as interim minister,
and the State Department who will run that?
Who's the Secretary of State?
Who you think should be the defense ministry?
What about just all about the US like what
what are you
what's worth living in?
You know, also people don't share. Did you hear what she saw and saw set? No, I don't. I don't care
is not something of my concern. She has been all the latest you know, his statement of shareholder and Daya scholar song so I didn't know what he said. I don't care what he says is not my concern. He doesn't live here he was not part of my community I don't share Did you know what someone said this and said that and there is people all what they do is looking after the mistake of that person the statement of that person and all they do is focus on that
that's not my concern.
My concern what will improve my Dean my Acura and the people around yes if it's something that of concern to our community, defend our community as I will take care of it.
Also, one other thing that that is so common in personal matters
where people you know don't mind their own business, something so nosy and he sometimes he takes you give somebody his nose back and said please take your nose back. I've wanted them my business
No, it just so so knows. Hey
Is your wife pregnant? You guys been married for two months? What you're my sex therapist now and you're gonna check all your my my family planner.
It's just weird.
Woman a sister asked her sister. How's your relationship your you know your sexual relationship with your husband? Unbelievable. I'm not making this up.
And I'm not saying things that is rarely happen. No, no.
That happened a lot. Unfortunately.
Much Mashallah. You work in this company? Yes. How much you make? What's not your business? So, Monica, hello? Yes, I'm Samantha. What are you? What are my wife?
What's Where are you?
It's not your business where I am.
Who's the person next to you.
People ask how much you make.
If this is something important, you can politely Hey, I know it's personal, if you feel comfortable to tell me that.
But this became so you know, a people
involve himself with other people personal life.
And then his people so much, you know, a neighbor brings something, what did he get? Or what kind of thing what kind of car what kind of washing machine is this? What kind of dishwasher that you have,
in all this kind of things that people involve themselves in it for no reason, but just being nosy.
And it is really annoying. And it wastes your time and it shows weakness of email. So if one of the thing that shows that your email is not perfect, and is not strong, is that you always care about things that doesn't benefit you.
It is sad when they see the youth among us, or what they care about things will not benefit them in the ACA, or what they care about this athletic No, what
No, this basketball players or baseball player or you know, all they care about what they do, what is the latest things they do. And they themselves sometimes not even athletes, I'm talking I'm not talking about caring about games or no problem with the Parana problem when this is all what you know all what you focus
on most of your focus. We know so much about it.
The games and the actors and the movies and all this stuff.
And you look at this person, what do you know about allowed you know karate, about the process of law what you know about the Sahaba? Nothing.
It is sad.
And that's something we have to change. And if to be honest with ourselves.
Because if you perfect your snap, and I mean by prayer, you have good Islam, strong Islam, men Hashanah, Islam, those who do Islam is good and excellent.
The reward started from 700 everybody else has stopped from 10 and up they start from 700 and up.
Whoever follow this Hadeeth
will talk a little
or watch what they sign because if it's not something of my concern, why would I talk about it?
Do you know what happened between her and her husband? No. So Mike, so my concern
now my business
when you will end gossip you will end backbite
heartworm disease man addiction kurama hoomin Amelie Allah kurama illa female Annie
if you compare your if you make your your statements and your talk, go along with your actions Yeah. And you talk about things that it will lead to action, you will find yourself speak a little you not speak too much, or will only speak about the thing that will lead to actions speak about things of concern, things that will benefit you.
And it was said manage struggle or be managed Mariah and he Fattah Houma Annie, if you focus on the thing that doesn't concern you, you will miss the thing that is built it will concern you and benefit you. Well, men lemmya Stoney BMI acfi, Felisa dunya Shea on your journey.
And if you're not content and satisfied
in this life,
with what you have
nothing from what you don't have, will ever satisfy you.
I'll say that again. If you're not happy and content with what you have nothing from what you don't have will ever make you satisfied. You need to learn how to be happy and satisfied with what you have first.
And this handy, teaches us that we should concern about what do we have? And we should not be concerned about what we don't have with the concern of things that doesn't concern us care about the thing that it does not which is not of concern to us. Because focus on these things will make you not focus on what the thing that says benefit beneficial for you.
minding your own business, by the way, doesn't mean not caring about others.
That's not the point of the heading. We should care about others. But there is a difference between caring about others and basically concerning about no business, people's business and private life.
How many minutes we left for other mode of Wi
Ireland Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
who will end here next Saturday shall take it.
Next week. The next honey It is interesting we have only a two headed left I believe, or
Yeah, three headings left. One about controlling your tongue. About remaining silent one about Toba and the next study which is next week Sharla talk about
and eating so
so interior Sharla tada and if we have questions from the crowd, we'll take it
kohara Do we have any questions from the from the online?
Chris one second.
While he comes around want to lie here what occurred?
To those who are giving you
Zach aloha Nancy.
My problem is that when I am asked things that are not some one's business and or personal, I find it hard not to answer truthfully. or avoid being rude to buy my silence.
If somebody asks you something about your private life and you don't feel comfortable to answer just be simple, be straightforward.
Say I think we need to teach people manners to you need to be rude you can have the smile set.
I like to keep that personal.
You know, I like to you know I don't like to talk about this with people. I think that's my personal low business. Just give it
I don't think it's you know, it's like somebody that they asked me questions about something about like my kids and my live
and I'm not saying any it's normal for us Mashallah. How many kids you have I don't think that's like people business people getting into your business that's being friendly.
Okay, but somebody for example, Mashallah you have them right like after another almost less than a year
what's your business I get them my here apart are two years apart or nine months apart? What's your business you know you're not my my like my my my family planner. Now.
This guy right here
like for example, you know, Muhammad is he was looking for marriage and say Hey, did you get married or not? Or like do you want to get married
Oh, if somebody's asking me about someone say Abdullah want to get married What do you think of Abdullah?
Yeah, I'll say just stay as far as you can. Yeah, now
Abdullah as has a magical touch say unless you're 100% one a marry
Abdullah to your sister in a stay away because just one time you meet the guy he'll just take over your heart. Yeah, I trusted to do it.
Anyway, so I can be honest and tell them Yeah, but but that's fine.
But I'm talking about simply you can ask your question I think he should tell them. By the way, it's not easy to stay away from the thing that doesn't concern you.
Remember him Allah said once, kala and Kuru Illa Mama, I only remember one time I talked about something which is not of concern to me.
Guess what's that thing was
the Columbia umbrella and he you know what it was it they told him about the mustard was built in Baghdad in a very unique structure. Cleveland mustard boonie banaji people that can be a hedger in boonie hand in neurology,
ethical and human and he said that what kind of stones that they use? I heard a great he still remember this from years that I asked about what kind of stones so my business what kind of stones
it just not beneficial information for me.
nylon so if you compare this to us, that's a big difference. That's why mobitel engineer Cole Shea on NFL talent English Lena Santa lemon, Derek Willis to be Taric from 20 years have been saving this. I did not control I have no control over it. But I'm not willing to give up yet. They said what it is called an L.
Lion is to stay away from things not which is not of concern to me. It's very hard by the way.
But this I hope it will remind us to focus on the thing that will remind and by the way, one of the thing is like you know, I think if we just can focus on social media and work our way through that you will find this head it will make so much time and space in your daily schedule. Unbelievable. So I brought the rahimullah said this head is awesome we have the rocks is a fundamental belief when it comes to the issue of managing time properly.
Because most of our time get wasted or thing that's not beneficial for us. And if you should not care about will not benefit you you should not do what will not have concern of you and you should not okay. spend money on the thing that which is not of concern to you.
Or benefit you may Allah subhanaw taala help all of us. And thank you guys for
for being online. And Andy we have Andy and many other peoples to
Santa Monica Mottola here
just before you start on the line I forgot to say something to everybody out there that my prayers in my notes for all for the people of Lebanon for that great disaster like like huge disaster and great unit disasters that they are going through these days.
And I asked a Lost Planet Allah to make it easy for that country and to bring them together and to make the outcome of a
better for for everyone a mama Ameen.
