Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

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

Smilla Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah.

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


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

had going over the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

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

where he said that

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

a believer is like my fellow Minica nulla

00:00:29 --> 00:00:33

that a believer is like a palm tree.

00:00:34 --> 00:00:44

And we said that every time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, although Michele returned the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam sets an example or a parable,

00:00:45 --> 00:00:55

it is a good idea to understand why did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam likened a believer to a palm tree. And we said that the more you learn about the palm tree,

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

the more sense

00:00:59 --> 00:01:43

the example that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam has said makes. So inshallah I'm just going to go through them quickly. But then we will spend more time on one aspect that we did not share last time. So very quickly, we said that the palm tree is so unique, in a sense that the roots do not spread out, the roots go deeper. And we said that in big cities, they really like to put palm trees between the roads. Because otherwise if you put any other tree, the roots are going to spread out and they will crack open the sidewalk and possibly damage the street. But a palm tree goes the route goes directly down. There. We also said something really, really interesting about trees, that

00:01:43 --> 00:02:25

trees actually have fights where the branches fight with one another because they are all fighting for sunlight. And the way that the trees fight is that they literally put the branches down, break the branches, so that they all have access to the sunlight. With the exception of a palm tree, a palm tree continues to grow, but never at the expense of another tree. Similarly a believer grows but never at the expense of anybody else. And we said that the palm tree is so beneficial that every part of it is good.

00:02:26 --> 00:02:31

The leaves are the I think last time I was told that they called they're not ferns what are they called?

00:02:33 --> 00:02:34

Are they called

00:02:35 --> 00:03:15

nuts in Galeazzi, the leafs call them the least for now. You know, talk to people from Africa talk to people from South America, Asia poor countries. And they will tell you that if you are ever going to put up a shed use the palm tree leaves as the covering because they decompose so slowly. So they will give you that protection for a very long time you clean the trunk of the palm tree they make excellent woodfire all trees are dead. When you cut the roots, the palm tree is dead when you cut off the head.

00:03:16 --> 00:03:23

But inshallah This is the part that we're going to spend more time on is the last part of the palm tree.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:31

Palm Tree is one of the lowest maintenance trees

00:03:33 --> 00:03:37

it is such a low maintenance tree requires very little

00:03:38 --> 00:03:41

but give so much back in return.

00:03:42 --> 00:03:58

And that's why Subhan Allah it is so beautiful this part of the hadith is not in the Hadith, but it's part of our understanding of the Hadith clan, hello interval exam. And Muslim I mean, you can have if

00:03:59 --> 00:04:09

one of the beauties or what something that we are to aspire to, is to become people who are low maintenance.

00:04:10 --> 00:04:18

They say that people who are low maintenance are people who are emotionally expensive.

00:04:19 --> 00:04:32

That's a really nice way of looking at this. People who are low maintenance are emotionally in expensive or wherever hoorah much more helping out a free and

00:04:34 --> 00:04:39

low maintenance people do not exhaust you emotionally.

00:04:40 --> 00:04:48

Because when we are exhausted emotionally, we have very little energy left after that.

00:04:50 --> 00:04:59

Misha Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most pleasant, but he was also one of

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

The lowest maintenance requiring people

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

despite the fact that he's the Prophet of Allah, but he was such low maintenance, give God and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa salam, Al cannon wa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Leia EABL mo Juden. Well wala Yatta LABOUM of Odin said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was so easygoing, he would never belittle anything that is available, nor does he require that people bring to him that which is not available in what's going on. No maintenance people.

00:05:40 --> 00:05:41

They are emotionally

00:05:43 --> 00:05:44


00:05:45 --> 00:06:13

Rachel, Zara Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a man comes and visits with the Prophet of Allah. But then prior to him coming in people informed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala Rasulillah Phoolan you read those Yara ticka ticka Prophet Allah, such and such person is waiting to see you outside or wants to come in for Harlan Elisa Selim be a whole last year. Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam makes a statement about that. And he said, The worst kind of people.

00:06:14 --> 00:06:38

God Fela Madhava Allah here Rajat has shallow who never use Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam rubbish. Well, agilus who had this a hotel Mr. Mo, homebirth, mouthful Kalam. But when the man came in the prophets of Allah, Allah and salam greeted him very well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood up and he made him sit there. And the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam smiled in the process. Helen was an excellent host to the man

00:06:40 --> 00:07:13

fellow Maha Raja Raja. However when the PEEP when that man left the people there earlier rasool Allah, they pointed out the obvious. Yeah Rasul Allah, Lama the Quran Allah Quran will cultivate yourself last year when we mentioned who the visitor is, you said these the worst type of people, yet when he came in, you act the way that you did with him for all and never use Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam shall rule Nursey when you say no nurse who e li, Maha Fattah Shari with the Akasha

00:07:14 --> 00:07:38

so that point the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the worst type of people is the person who people are forced to be polite with them, because you are afraid of their rudeness, even wickedness. You just You just You do not want to rub this person the wrong way. So what do you do?

00:07:39 --> 00:07:48

You just have to be polite in the hopes that you don't say anything wrong, you don't do anything wrong because if you do, you are going to pay for it.

00:07:50 --> 00:08:18

Emotionally in expensive will Allah He Allah He has he has slipped out of the island in the magical KDF hula, Allah galbi you know when people describe a person and they say that the person is so light on my heart, what did what do we mean when we describe a person that they are light on my heart, it means that they are not emotionally expensive.

00:08:19 --> 00:08:38

Similar to the palm tree oil insert in huffy if only look palop cathedral atop like a palm tree, such low maintenance, it requires very little but when it gives a gift in abundance, what does that mean?

00:08:39 --> 00:08:52

Low maintenance people are not the way they are because they want it to be a tit for tat. You do this for me. I do this for you see low maintenance people

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

do not keep a scoreboard.

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

And if you're married, you know what I'm talking about.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:04

You know what I'm talking about? You don't.

00:09:06 --> 00:09:27

So, a scoreboard is usually me, always aware of what I bring to the relationship. I work. I wash I clean by coke. I do I do. So you keep a scoreboard and the score is always 10 Zero in my favor.

00:09:29 --> 00:09:37

So when I come when I come home, what am I waiting for? I am waiting for that person to make it 10 to 10.

00:09:38 --> 00:09:44

But they don't and when they don't do that, what what happens to me? I become resentful.

00:09:46 --> 00:09:58

And then what happens? I suffer in silence. And then what happens? I shut down. Why is this? Because I am keeping a score

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

Please don't tell me you don't do that.

00:10:02 --> 00:10:12

You may not have a scoreboard a literal scoreboard. But in the back of our minds, we all have scoreboards that we shouldn't have.

00:10:14 --> 00:10:28

So low maintenance people like the palm tree, I'll call it a total up Kathira to our top, it requires very little, but when it gives, it gives in abundance

00:10:30 --> 00:10:31

or only that

00:10:34 --> 00:10:38

low maintenance people or agreeable

00:10:39 --> 00:10:42

adults, Jamila Maleficarum would fill them with our

00:10:44 --> 00:11:31

you know, agree ability is such a nice quality to have. That's part of what makes low maintenance people so pleasant to be around. They're agreeable. What is going on? We're gonna do this, okay, what's going on? Okay? It's not that they don't have an opinion of their own, but they're just really agreeable. They're pleasant to be able. They're not difficult. They don't require a lot of convincing they don't. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Lama bathroom or other bingeable While Abu Musa ash Ali Al Yemen. Can nebi Salah Masha Manuela Prophet Medina, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he dispatched or sent one of the renewable and Abu Musa luxury to Yemen. Remember, at

00:11:31 --> 00:12:06

that point, there were Christians in in Yemen, and the Prophet SAW Selim was really keen into you know, these are people of the book, we want to win them over. So he sent mirazur bingeable and Abu Musa luxury to talk to them. And he is walking them all the way to the the outskirts of Medina. And he's giving them advice. And he's given an and what is he say in his advisor, Bashir, our Latina Pharaoh, make sure that you are bearers of good news and do not facilitate to drive people away.

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


00:12:09 --> 00:12:37

is, you know bring about you know, the to be to be motivated or to be religious. Not only are you in peace with yourself, but also you tend to bring ease to those who are around you. Whenever you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Salawat Robbie was Allahu Allah He been out of a villa if he had, he was a person that intended peace preached peace, and he would advise people to do peace. Men Allah if

00:12:39 --> 00:13:17

Lama Fatah Hanabusa Allahu Allahu Sal Maka, the conquest of Makkah. A man came to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam o Allah rasool Allah, in Nina Dr. Elahi in further Hala hula Kanaka la also Leah Nakata and if you obey tillbaka this man comes to the Prophet of Allah at the conquest of Makkah, and he's a prophet of Allah, I have made a vow that if you ever come and conquer Mecca, I made a vow that I must pray to rock us in Al Aqsa in fall asleep in Al Aqsa mosque for Al Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Salah hula.

00:13:18 --> 00:13:23

So the Prophet of Allah said, Pray right here, pray right here for us,

00:13:25 --> 00:13:25

to Allah.

00:13:26 --> 00:13:38

So the man again for the second time he does the Prophet of Allah I made a vow, that if Allah gives him a cut, I made a vow that I will go and pray to rock as in Philistine beta the market this a lot. So Mosque,

00:13:40 --> 00:13:45

the prophets Allah, Allah wa salam there again, said suddenly how he would pray right here.

00:13:46 --> 00:14:05

And for the third time, the man repeats the same thing. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells him solely how he would pray right here. And then for the fourth time, the man says prophet of Allah and he repeats himself. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, until that,

00:14:07 --> 00:14:11

if that's what you want to do, then I was giving you a way out.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:25

I was giving you a way easier, developed by Illumina. Another Indian insert is another another, all your jeweler who were usin ruler who either wager the shape of Bulman neverI. And yet TV

00:14:27 --> 00:14:37

Salafi Battlemaster, Salah, Salafi, tbaytel, haram, Salafi beta slowly celebrated Hara home and that is why if a person makes a vow, if you make a vow

00:14:38 --> 00:14:41

and if you make a

00:14:42 --> 00:14:43

if you make a vow

00:14:45 --> 00:14:55

and you find out that there is actually a better fulfillment of that vow of yours, you should do this. So a man makes a vow that I am going to slaughter a goat.

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

And then he finds out that he can slaughter a cow

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

slaughter cows,

00:15:01 --> 00:15:10

because the action is still the same. You're slaughtering you're offering, but now you are able to even do better. So the man made a vow that he's going to pray in Philistine.

00:15:12 --> 00:15:19

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, praying here is better than praying in Philistine because

00:15:21 --> 00:15:38

the sacred mosque is a better place, but the man would not listen. The point remains, low maintenance people in themselves are easy. And they also bring ease to those who are around them. They've called

00:15:39 --> 00:15:44

later colorful, of Odin, while you're able, module that

00:15:45 --> 00:16:36

he would neither belittle something that is available, nor would he ask for something that is not available. What can you say for now not allowed? And then they more often say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a person that would take care of his own immediate needs. So much so that the Prophet of Allah would so his own shoes is caught, if it is broken. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would fix it himself. Why do we say this? Because sometimes we have a tendency, that the minute we come in, all we do is order people around, make different requests of people. Why don't you make this for me? Why don't you bring me this? Why don't you take that and if this is how

00:16:36 --> 00:16:45

we are, people do not find pleasure in our presence. Remember, people may do things, but the point is,

00:16:47 --> 00:16:52

people will not find pleasure in our presence.

00:16:53 --> 00:17:09

Low maintenance people. People love them discs simply because they're pleasant to be around. They are agreeable, they are emotionally inexpensive, and they do not exhaust us.

00:17:10 --> 00:17:49

Island W sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Hiromu narrow, Allah Cooley, Hainan laning Sakhalin or even made a nurse you shall know your commit Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the Hellfire will never consume a person who imbibes the for these four qualities. A person who is Hain they are approachable, easy lane. They are soft, not as in like soft as in weak, but they are just really tender

00:17:50 --> 00:18:00

Sahal they're easy to talk to easy to get an apology from easy to accept an apology. They're just really easy to please

00:18:01 --> 00:18:07

or even when a nurse and everybody feels that you know what they are really they are approachable.

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

And this is what we call the triple A before you know availability, accessibility and what was the last one

00:18:19 --> 00:18:40

availability, accessibility and approachability, they are approachable, anybody can approach them and that is again you know when we imbibe these things, we become people who are low maintenance and then the people around us find that our company is a is a joy

00:18:41 --> 00:19:17

Illa hero which I know er comm has a 15 Allah global Hello Elena. May Allah Subhana Allah makers, people who are low maintenance for those who are around us, where people find it to be a joy to be in our presence, because we are emotionally inexpensive. We are approachable, available, accessible, agreeable, easy to please and we do not suck the life of those who are around us.

00:19:18 --> 00:19:21

Though Allahu Allah was Allah Allah Allah and

00:19:30 --> 00:19:32

I maintenance are

00:19:33 --> 00:19:34

emotionally expensive now.

00:19:38 --> 00:19:39

That's why they're emotionally expensive.
