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

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam

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

ala rasulillah Carrie webid

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

brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa Taala.

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

Today inshallah I want to focus and speak upon, or regarding a very eminent Sahabi about the Allahu anhu. And his name was agenda

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

been agenda

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

janaza yeah jinda agenda.

00:00:35--> 00:00:43

Now you think it Who is this hobby is a very eminent, very renowned Sahabi? Who is jinda? Janata?

00:00:44--> 00:01:24

jinda ojinaga is better better known as a Buddha as the Ferrari of the Alon who is clear was Abu Dora Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if anybody wants to see the Zohar, the abstinence from the dunya of Isa la salatu salam, then he should look at a Buddha allegory or the Allahu anhu even in his days of Jamelia abou, never worshipped idols, he had this dislike for the worship of idols, he was always seeking the truth.

00:01:25--> 00:01:38

So when he heard about the message of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had come, he sent his brother a nice to go to Makkah, and check this person out. So his brother, he goes to

00:01:40--> 00:01:52

Mecca, he stays in Makkah for a few days. He's watching the message of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he goes back to a Buddha Buddha said, what did you find, said I found a man who recites his beautiful color.

00:01:54--> 00:02:19

And I don't think he's poetry. And I also saw that he teaches some very good things, good characteristics. But this wasn't enough for a Buddha before he wrote the alarm who he wanted to know more. So then, the alarm who goes to Makkah, his brother told him, they know this man sob. sob means a person who has left the religion of his forefathers.

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

So he goes,

00:02:23--> 00:02:28

and he goes to the GABA and he asked somebody said, Where is this value called sabi?

00:02:29--> 00:02:48

So this man now obviously they dislike the province of La Silla disliked anybody coming to ask about him, and anybody interested in it, though. So what they do is that they beat a Buddha referred to the alarm. So now a Buddha is very careful. So he stays around the Kaaba, waiting to see the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:50--> 00:03:06

And then Elysees this man. And it was a young boy at the time. So earlier on the line, who says to him, do you have a place to stay? He says, No. So let me take you to my father's house. So he takes him to his father's house, his house and he stays in the house.

00:03:08--> 00:03:09

Next day,

00:03:11--> 00:03:17

he's again, by the Kaaba literally takes him again to his house. Third day.

00:03:19--> 00:03:40

He again by the Kaaba, and after the third day, on the fourth day of the olana sees him again. And he says, look, three days, is there something specific you're looking for? The Muslims are always looking to give Dawa anyway, said yes, but this is between me and you don't tell anybody I'm looking for the man they called swaby.

00:03:41--> 00:03:47

So he said, Follow me and stay at a distance. Don't come too close.

00:03:48--> 00:04:03

And wherever you see me Stop, you stop. So he follows him. And he takes him to the house, Down Arrow come down. Arkham was the first murder. So you could say in the history of Islam, it was by the foot of the mountain of Safar.

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

So it goes into the house, I both are on the line who follows him into the house. And they he meets the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the profits on the line he was Aloma gave him Dawa, and he embraced Islam.

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

And then the rest of Allah said, which tribe are you from?

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

said Allah He far.

00:04:27--> 00:04:33

And the Messenger of Allah says Allah here for why because looking forward note we bandits

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

you know, they were known to they resided somewhere between Mecca and Medina. And any caravan which went past them, they will try to drop it. So the messenger last fall, he said, Yes. And then the messenger Allah says, Allah guides wherever he wishes and this is the thing about the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You know, we have those who have the worst of characteristics once upon a time.

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

And then Allah subhanaw taala guides them and they become the best so people look at omoto

00:05:07--> 00:05:55

they would say regarding Omar, there is more chance of his father's donkey embracing Islam than this man embracing Islam. Arch Enemy of the deen of Allah Subhan. Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah didn't only embrace this slum becomes a meal meaning look at Holly been bullied. Literally every single battle, if you study the life of highly been relieved, literally every battle, he had one responsibility, and that was to kill the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that was clearly been released responsibility. And then Holly from a doula become safe Allah from the enemy of Allah, he becomes the sword of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is why, you know, we see people

00:05:55--> 00:06:02

today, and we see that, you know, they're up to nonsense. And it's their responsibility to enjoin good and forbid evil.

00:06:04--> 00:06:31

It's our responsibility. If we see somebody do something wrong, you know, we need to address it. And if it needs for us to speak out about it, we need to speak out about it. But it's a strong possibility that a very same person who is doing that nonsense today may be on the deen may be better than us tomorrow, maybe on the Day of Judgment Subhana Allah, this person may be ahead of us, and that only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows.

00:06:33--> 00:06:38

So I was saying to the message of my submissive, Allah give me permission to give power.

00:06:39--> 00:06:45

So the prophets Allah was cautious because the Muslims were only a handful. Actually, according to some narrations.

00:06:46--> 00:06:49

The Buddha was the fifth person to embrace Islam.

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

fifth person

00:06:54--> 00:06:56

so the province Allah salami

00:06:58--> 00:07:18

reluctantly allows him so he stands by the Kaaba. He says, Oh people of Makkah, people who come to me listen to my toll. So they gather around him and then he give them power towards Islam. They began to beat him and beat him until the province of Lhasa Abbas came, he wasn't a Muslim at that time.

00:07:19--> 00:07:58

And he stopped them. And he said, Don't kill this man. He belongs to the tribal VFR. He said at the best of times, it's difficult to get past the far when your caravan goes to Syria, using the gefahr are gonna allow you to pass without robbing your caravan if you kill one of the people. So a Buddha then goes, he's beaten. Next morning, he's back again. Tao Assa Cava. According to any historian, the first person to give open Dawa is Abu Dhabi fire he wrote the alarm, again, they beat him. And again, a bottle of the alarm who comes in he intervenes.

00:07:59--> 00:08:02

So then the message of Allah call him and he said,

00:08:04--> 00:08:16

Go to your people, and call them towards the last panel Adama to look at this fifth person to embrace Islam, a Buddha disappears.

00:08:17--> 00:08:32

The entirety of the Macan period, there is no sign of a Buddha 13 years, no sign of a Buddha hegira no sign of Buddha, brother, no sign of a Buddha.

00:08:33--> 00:08:39

No sign of a Buddha 150 years of hegira 100 no sign of Abu

00:08:40--> 00:08:41

Dhabi a lot.

00:08:42--> 00:08:51

And then one day the people are MCI Hey, this huge rush of horses and camels coming towards Medina.

00:08:54--> 00:08:58

And they rush out because they think there's an army about to attack Medina.

00:08:59--> 00:09:11

And who is it? A Buddha but not just a Buddha, the entirety of the the his tribe the bunny, therefore embraced Islam.

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

And he said O Messenger of Allah.

00:09:15--> 00:09:20

He's the refer every single one of the refer.

00:09:21--> 00:09:28

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said on ghafar on Lola May Allah forgive the entirety of his heart

00:09:29--> 00:09:32

and he said only that the message of Allah you see on the other side

00:09:34--> 00:09:41

this is the bunny Aslam. Huge tripe. The entirety of the bunny Islam embraced Islam.

00:09:43--> 00:09:50

And the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam said, Salam O Allah, Allah keep the bunny Islam intact.

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

Okay, they disappeared for years, came back with the entire tribe embraced Islam.

00:10:00--> 00:10:21

Shortly after this, we had the Battle of the book, The Battle of the book to give you a background was where the Muslim will go into encounter the Christians in North the Byzantines and the Arab Christians. It was midsummer, the Muslim just had a famine, it was time to now how is the crops

00:10:23--> 00:10:28

and the progress on the label sell themselves to the Sahaba were going 600 kilometres plus

00:10:29--> 00:10:46

forget the famine, forget the harvest. So many of them are now 15 would come to the province on the line they was alone. And they will say our message of Allah, you know, we got this excuse, and we got this excuse. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would leave them

00:10:47--> 00:11:00

if summer so then when they left many of the manaaki when the walls they are traveling they're fine get too hot. So every night some of them would slip away this this is too tough for us.

00:11:01--> 00:11:23

So the bar is a Muslim in the morning would be told so and so is left a message of Allah so and so is left so and so is left the barbarism. Omar la was Salam said, if this hated him, he will join us. And then one morning they say your message will not move does gone. So the purpose of Allah Allah wa sallam said, if there's hate in Abu Dhabi, he will join us. So they leave.

00:11:25--> 00:11:39

After a day or two, the Muslims are camped and in the distance they see a man walking and he walking and he's fooling to one side and rewarding to the other side, and the profits and loss and looks and he said, Good.

00:11:40--> 00:11:43

So the one law allow it to be a Buddha.

00:11:44--> 00:12:02

And he comes closer and closer and the Messenger of Allah recognizes him a Buddha and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam then on that occasion, he said regarding a Buddha, the young Chihuahua, will you move to water? Well, you will pay up the water, a Buddha in this dunya he walks by himself.

00:12:04--> 00:12:14

In this dunya we walked by himself, the man will die by himself and then the day will come he will be resurrected on the day of gentlemen all by himself.

00:12:16--> 00:12:38

A Buddha was very beloved to the prophets Allah Allah Allah will send them the province of Allah and he was someone new passing away. He took the handle Buddha and he placed it on his chest. The purpose of the law it was selam gave a Buddha some amazing Missy has and I'm gonna go through some of the nuts he has that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave seven that he has he gave to a Buddha. Buddha, Yolanda says Carla,

00:12:39--> 00:12:55

Murali Holly Reba sub in my beloved colleague, my friend, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded me for what seven things? Am I really behold bill? Misaki. What do we mean? He told me love the poor people and remain in the company.

00:12:57--> 00:13:04

Love the poor people and remain in the company, a Buddha voila, he out all the Sahaba was the champion of

00:13:06--> 00:13:15

the Misaki loved a Buddha Okay, sorry for the alarm. Moroni and Andorra element is a man who adunni well under a man who is

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

the Messenger of Allah and this is such a beautiful to see.

00:13:20--> 00:13:43

He said, the mercy of Allah told me to look at those who are below me and never look at those who are above me dounia because as long as you look at those who are below you, you will be in a state and in a state of contentment. And as long as you look at those who are above you, because there will always be people who will have more brilliant than you you will never be content.

00:13:44--> 00:14:12

Why do you think so? So many people today especially have mental health issues? Why? Because you got social media and your social media and then somebody posts something Oh, I'm on holiday with my husband. And we might children. Oh, I'm eating in Kobe ticktick Yeah. Um, and the first thing people now do so honestly. So freak

00:14:13--> 00:14:18

you go to a restaurant. The first thing you do is you take a picture. I'm here

00:14:20--> 00:14:26

the reason you're here not all the time reason you're there especially if you're our age because your wife didn't cook for you.

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

That's why you're there.

00:14:32--> 00:14:40

But people have become one lie. He's so fake. But then is somebody sat down like me on social media looking at a

00:14:41--> 00:14:44

copi I wish I could go Kobe.

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

A what am what amazing sister look, you know, sister look at other sisters and how pretty she is. You know, I don't look like that. She's only she may be pretty, but one of the reasons he's pretty cool. She's used filters. She

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

makeup, she's taken 50 pictures and these come came out the best.

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

Why?

00:15:11--> 00:15:28

Because we look at those who are above us and not those who are beneath us. And when you look at those who are above you, you always salivate. You're never content. So the Messenger of Allah, so a Buddha, oh Buddha, look at those who are below you look at those who don't have anything.

00:15:30--> 00:15:31

Look at those children.

00:15:32--> 00:15:44

You know, recently, a while ago, recently I was in Pakistan, and I went to Islam about and in Islam about by F 11, which is the most expensive areas in in Islam about

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

over 1000 pounds just to rent a house.

00:15:49--> 00:16:03

Right across the road, they have what they call Hana dosch people who live in tents. 40 years, these people have lived in tent, many, many refugees, many from up north, as many even Punjabi

00:16:04--> 00:16:15

I went to a school, the school was about the classroom was this big. They there was not a place for a student to move.

00:16:18--> 00:16:21

But the problem is that because we're always looking at those

00:16:23--> 00:16:26

who are above us, and not those who are beneath us.

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

And I was thinking to myself,

00:16:31--> 00:16:33

you know, these people need to be helped.

00:16:37--> 00:16:47

And what happens is when I spoke to the Pakistani some of the boxes and all of them, so now what do you help these people? They deserve it. They like this 14 G's.

00:16:48--> 00:16:52

They they have remained in those places.

00:16:55--> 00:17:00

I said to the guy I said, I said Don't you think they have aspiration for the children like you have aspirations for your children?

00:17:01--> 00:17:11

I said, don't you think they would like electricity and running water? But don't you think that they will like to live in FL ever like you live? You live across the road from them?

00:17:12--> 00:17:15

I said even if you say it's the fault of the parents.

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

Let me ask you a question. What fault is of those children?

00:17:20--> 00:17:33

See, this is how we live our life. We always looking at those who are above us. And we respect those who are above us. Those who are bigger, more money than has a bigger house than us.

00:17:34--> 00:17:37

And we never have compassion for those who are beneath us.

00:17:39--> 00:18:20

Above us, Allah Salam said Hello, my name is Keenan McKinney, MC Myskina why shouldn't it be Sumatra Misaki Yama, Yama, Allah as long as you keep you alive, keep you alive in poverty. He chose poverty. There's two types of poverty. One is poverty that you don't choose that one which you know good. That's the one that most of you will have sought refuge from. The second is where you choose poverty. The problem is Allison chose poverty for himself. And this is why when Sophie Ana tholi when a poor man would enter his gathering the greatest piece of his time, he would stand up and he said the message of Allah chose the position of this individual. Hello, my name is Kenan. What am

00:18:20--> 00:18:36

its name is Keenan Ola, when I die, give me death in poverty. I shadow the Alon Jose the day the Messenger of Allah died. We didn't have we didn't have all to be burned in the lanten was surely resume Ratan Misaki neoma Clara and Allah

00:18:38--> 00:19:05

resurrect me with the poor people on the Day of Judgment, the animasi Look at this. The Messenger of Allah didn't say, Oh Allah resurrect the poor people with Bri he said Allah resurrect me with the poor people. Why? Because the messenger Allah said that the poor people will go into general 500 G's before the rich people because they have less to answer for in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:19:08--> 00:19:12

If Allah has given you wealth, May Allah give you more.

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

There's nothing wrong with wealth.

00:19:16--> 00:19:23

doorman in the old left a 21,000,020 $1 million when he left this denier.

00:19:25--> 00:19:29

We know smart, fun. But the thing is,

00:19:30--> 00:19:37

that there should be a compassion in the heart for those who have less value than you. And you should never

00:19:38--> 00:19:41

be looking up to people who have more than you

00:19:42--> 00:19:43

never

00:19:44--> 00:19:55

will lie the most. And I see this one of the most detestable people are those people who suck up to other people because they have more wealth than them or they have more status than them.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

I'll tell you why. It's despicable because it's a reflection.

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

Have your own sick self

00:20:03--> 00:20:20

that you will respect people because they got money that they got status. The Messenger of Allah told a Buddha seven things before bill Misaki What do we mean home? And he told him well I younger a llama Hua focac

00:20:21--> 00:20:27

said do not do not look at the ones who are above you. But look at those who are beneath you.

00:20:30--> 00:20:32

And then he said to a Buddha or the Allahu

00:20:36--> 00:20:40

he said, What am I really an Acela Rahim we're in a deliberate,

00:20:41--> 00:20:53

he said Mercy of Allah told me to reconcile ties is a beautiful, reconcile ties were in at birth, even if your family members turned away from you.

00:20:54--> 00:20:56

This is a commodity.

00:20:57--> 00:20:59

It's easy to be good to people who are good to you.

00:21:01--> 00:21:11

But it's more difficult than a family member who shows you, their family member who doesn't give you time who never rings you you pick up the phone and you ring that person say How are you?

00:21:13--> 00:21:14

How's your day been?

00:21:15--> 00:21:20

And this is the teaching of the dean, the teachers Dean to attain Jenna is not cheap.

00:21:22--> 00:21:32

Those family members who don't give you the time when you go to Bangladesh, Somalia, Pakistan, and you go to visit all your rich relatives.

00:21:33--> 00:21:39

But you never go to visit those relatives who have nothing. And you know, I'm speaking about

00:21:44--> 00:22:05

you got no time because they got no status in society. Because by your current criteria, is wealth is every everything the Messenger of Allah said reconciled ties even if they turn away from you. In another generation, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah elongates the life of that person who reconciles ties,

00:22:06--> 00:22:09

Allah will elongate your life.

00:22:10--> 00:22:15

Make your life longer if you are destined to live 40 years ally increases that life.

00:22:20--> 00:22:28

And then he says that the Messenger of Allah said or Imani as a HUD as a messenger bot, Allah told me don't ask anybody for anything.

00:22:30--> 00:22:33

What am I gonna do an akula, Huck Willow cannibal.

00:22:34--> 00:22:36

And he commanded me they said Buddha

00:22:37--> 00:22:41

speak the truth. Even if people find it better.

00:22:44--> 00:23:09

There was any one amongst the Sahaba who spoke the truth. Everybody disagreed with a Buddha on certain things. But he spoke the truth. Even if people disliked it, he confronted why via he confronted us monitor the alarm on home. And he spoke what he believed to be the truth, even if those people found it.

00:23:12--> 00:23:18

Well, Mr. Ronnie Allah, half of Isla de la Motta line, and the Messenger of Allah said to me or Buddha, Listen,

00:23:19--> 00:23:22

do not fear what people will say about you.

00:23:23--> 00:23:35

Speak the truth, and never give a damn about what people say about you. You know, we spend our life on asleep. We spend our life worried about what people think about us.

00:23:36--> 00:23:45

And I asked you I asked you and I'm saying this in the Islamic perspective, not what's called a denier perspective. You think Yeah, shake you think I should do whatever I want with my life. Yeah.

00:23:47--> 00:23:52

You know, yeah, YOLO you only live once acid and he only works

00:23:55--> 00:24:05

I'm sitting in the dunya with Dini perspective. If honestly, honestly, you are gonna die tomorrow. Okay.

00:24:06--> 00:24:16

How many things in your life you would have wanted to do? But you didn't do because you were too worried about what people would say.

00:24:18--> 00:24:28

And if death was to befall you tomorrow one lie he would you would think to yourself, you know, I wish I'd done this. And I wish I'd done this. But then it's too late.

00:24:29--> 00:24:34

Don't care about people you know why? Because people are never pleased.

00:24:35--> 00:24:43

You can never please the people. They will be all they will say yes a hero who's a good person. But you know the Mr. But

00:24:45--> 00:24:49

Sam is a good guy, but he's always a but

00:24:50--> 00:24:56

because people as I mentioned before, need to put you down to feel good about themselves.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

That is the nature of many people.

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

For their own reassurance, they have to live off your failures.

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

So

00:25:09--> 00:25:15

do not allow what people say to stop you from doing what is good.

00:25:18--> 00:25:31
