00:00:45--> 00:01:22

This we likely will handle our salatu salam ala rasulillah, who Allah and he will serve me here at marine shala continuing with our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a sirata number we had the prophetic biography. So in sha Allah, today, we'll be starting the 10th year of higit. On this is the 10th year of the prophets, alabi sons residents in the city of Medina. Now, I know that for quite a few of the previous sessions, we've been talking about the ninth year amu food, we're all the different delegations were coming to visit the prophets a lot of a sudden,

00:01:23--> 00:02:08

by no means have we talked about or covered all the different delegations that came. Of course, there's benefit in studying it. However, to quite an extent, a lot of the accounts of the delegation are simply just names of the tribes, the places where they were from the fact that they came to Medina, they embrace Islam, they accepted Islam. And that's essentially the gist of it. And so there's a number of different tribes that we did not touch upon. But suffice it to say, there were dozens upon dozens of tribes that came during that particular year to come embrace Islam accept Islam and go back to their people. And that's essentially what led to kind of this

00:02:09--> 00:03:01

really exponential growth of the oma and the spread of Islam during that time. So it is very important and quite beneficial to note, the fact that something we've talked about, to quite an extent, something that was written very incorrectly, completely absolutely, factually incorrect. And actually, it's quite tragic as well that it was written by the orientalist and many of the Europeans during the 1617 1800s. And this, of course, continued on in the West in the 1900s. And even up till now, where they incorrectly they, they they they miss portrayed the spread of Islam. And we've all heard the phrases of Islam being spread by the sword, so on and so forth. But when you read, even

00:03:01--> 00:03:24

going back to the time that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you're finding that these are delegations and tribes that are coming of their own accord, to come to ask questions about the religion, and about the faith and then to embrace Islam and take it back to their people. So there was this very natural organic spread and growth of a song that led to the entire Arabian peninsula, essentially,

00:03:25--> 00:03:30

being covered completely by the faith and the religion and the practice of a song.

00:03:32--> 00:04:09

That being said, we're not going to proceed into the 10th year of higit. On the 10th year of their profits, a lot of times residents in the city of Medina, and what is also the last full year of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, there are quite a few monumental events during this 10th year that we're going to talk about. For instance, we're going to talk about digital readout, the farewell pilgrimage, we're going to talk about the prophets, a lot of these some journeying to tabuk. The, for the final last major expedition of the life of the prophets, a lot of them so we'll talk about all those things. But what we're going to start with today is something

00:04:09--> 00:04:39

that was actually quite remarkable. And in and of itself, it doesn't seem like it was that eventful, but nevertheless, it is quite significant. And that is we had talked about that in the previous couple of sessions. We had touched on the fact that amongst the people that were coming to Medina and embracing Islam, there were people from the area, the region known as Yemen, which was even known as Yemen at that particular time as well.

00:04:40--> 00:05:00

And in the previous session, we have touched on how there was a prince, part of the royalty of Yemen had come and embraced Islam as well. So essentially, the result of that was that now in Yemen, you had a significant number of Muslims, and the song was continuing to spread in that region.

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

What that necessitated with that required was the presence of a representative of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, someone who could teach people to religion, answer their questions, and also establish a system of governance there that would report back to Medina wood would be connected back to the headquarters of Asana that time, and that is the city of the prophets a lot. He sent him in Medina to Managua and that particular individual that the prophets a lot so he would send others as well. But the first individual that the prophets, a lobby, some

00:05:36--> 00:06:13

appointed to go there to Yemen as his official, Ambassador and representative, continue preaching and spreading the faith, educate those who have come into the religion, and also establish a system of governance and connect Yemen, very, you know, connected very meaningfully back to the city of Medina, the the major kind of seat of Islam at that time were the prophets, a lot of them was of course, and so the prophets, a lot of them sending what I've been able to Yemen, when I say it's not that eventful, I mean that there wasn't any particular dramatic

00:06:14--> 00:06:56

event that occurred, but rather the profits allottee, some sends more admin juggler, the Allahu talana to Yemen. He goes there, stays there for some time preaches spreads, teaches the religion, and then eventually comes back to Medina. But the reason why it is very significant and important to talk about this particular moment, is that number one, this is one of the first major instances where you have now the prophets a lot of them sending, what we would basically referred to as a governor is basically sending an official representative of the state to go and to establish a system of governance in another region number one,

00:06:57--> 00:07:39

number two, the profits a lot ism is also not just sending a simple government representative, a delegate, but the profits a lot December's also sending what can be called an Imam, somebody who is His representative, and like an appointed Mr. by the prophet soldier appointed by him to go there and represent him in terms of spiritual religious teachings and continue to spread the faith teach the faith. And one very, again, it might seem like a minor thing, in terms of religious function, but think about the significance of it. He's also sending him there, and we're covered the conversation, where he's also sending him there to answer any questions that they might have address

00:07:39--> 00:08:20

their religious issues and concerns, what we basically call issuing fatwas. fatawa. And that might seem, again, like I said, just a minor function of a religious authority. Yeah, you get fat while your local scholar gives you a fatwa. So what's the big deal, but the big deal here is that this is someone who is now being licensed by the profits all of a sudden, certified by him to actually be giving religious rulings and answering people's religious questions during the lifetime of the prophets a lot of the time. And that's what makes it quite significant. And so you see here, before I go any further into this specific instance, of my eyes, what you see here is part of the execution

00:08:20--> 00:09:00

of the vision of the prophets. A lot of these are the prophets, a lot of them of course, we as Muslims understand this, but it's important to elaborate and to touch on this as well. And it is by no surprise or shock to us, that the prophets a lot of Islam is a visionary. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had this vision of establishing an own bar. And part of establishing a numa was that the oma would exist in different places and regions. And they needed to have a system of governance. And at the same time, the oma would spread. And there needed to be qualified individuals who could continue to not only preach, teach, but also address the religious and spiritual life

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

issues of people. After the prophets a lot is almost gone. And a truly visionary teacher and leader. And a mentor is not someone who is just teaching people for when they're gone, then those people can hopefully pick up the pieces and carry on. But that is somebody who actually puts people to work while that person is still there, to actually build and build up a system so that that system is completely in place. And when that leader is no longer available, then it continued the machine continues to operate. Now of course, in the instance of the profits, a lot of the sudden it never will be the same. The departure of the profits a lovely sentiment, in the words of the companions

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

themselves, is the greatest tragedy that ever be felled the oma right Abdullah bin Masuda the Allahu Allahu says that they felt like all the light was sucked out of this world. We all like a part of all of us died that day.

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

Right, nothing would ever replace the profits a lot. But you still have to admire and you are just completely taken aback all filled with all at how that when the profits a lot of them left this world as tragic as that moment is and as irreplaceable as he is.

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

But we still see that basically three days later,

00:10:26--> 00:10:58

the oma continue to function. And that is truly remarkable. That is that is one of the miracles of the prophets a lot of times and something that inspires us to today till today, and something we need to study very intently the succession planning of the profits allottee setup. So that's another very instance here that that makes. That's another factor. Another issue for which this instance is quite remarkable. The last thing the final thing to say explain why we'll be talking about this in depth today

00:10:59--> 00:11:43

is that when the prophets alabi son was sending what had been developed the Allahu taala No, because of how monumentous of an occasion this was, governance is being extended in established religious authorities being now extended and established in another region. The profits are the sum game while I've been juggler, the Allahu taala on who some very, very profound and significant advice and some of the most beautiful instruction, really deep, profound instruction from the prophets a lot of a sudden, was actually given to more admins of the Allahu taala No, at this occasion preparing him for the immense responsibility that he was about to shoulder and just going through those words of the

00:11:43--> 00:11:54

prophets a lot, will be extremely beneficial, that he imparted to his beloved companion, Weidman deloading Allahu taala. And so that's why I wanted to touch on it today.

00:11:55--> 00:12:32

So what I will be talking about is, I'll be quoting parts of the conversation of the prophet to lobbyism with my admin Jamila De La Cucina. So the first thing that I mentioned here is narrated by mumble hottie Rahim Allahu tada in Asahi, ignore a Gosselaar the Allahu taala, in Houma. he narrates this, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said to my husband, gentlemen, he was preparing to send him to Yemen. He said in Mecca Sati Omen Allah ke tabin. You will be going to a people who are people of the book, they're Christians and Jews.

00:12:33--> 00:13:14

For whom for whom Allah insha Allah, Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, when you go to them, then call them to testify to the oneness of God entered the finality of the messenger ship in the prophethood of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He goes on to say for inhome adoro la cabeza Liga, if they obeyed you if they follow this advice for him and the Mahabharata, Florida him Hamza, Salawat, and philokalia. Meanwhile, Allah, then at that point, instruct them that Allah subhanaw taala, has ordained upon them five daily prayers. So you kind of see the sequence of what to educate people upon and how to establish the religion amongst the people. The first thing is give

00:13:14--> 00:13:49

them a relationship with God, make sure they have a relationship with a lot. And that is quite profound. And we can learn quite a lesson from that as well. that a lot of times we get so much we get so caught up in imparting minutiae of like Muslim culture to people, we start talking to them about you know, what their name is. And again, that's a justified concern, if the name is not islamically, acceptable, like even at the time of the processor, someone's name was optimasi, the slave of Jesus, then of course, that name would be changed, man, or something of that sort. But other than that, if the name wasn't, I mean, what was your mother's name before Islam?

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

It was or Omar,

00:13:52--> 00:13:55

what was your earth man's name before Islam? It was Earth man.

00:13:56--> 00:14:11

You know, and it's it's important. However, one of the wives of the profits a lot exam, her name before her son was Bella. And that was a name that did not have a suitable meaning and appropriate meaning. We talked about this in one of the earlier sessions. So the prophets a lot even changed it to Xena.

00:14:12--> 00:14:48

Right, and so, if the name is not appropriate, that's a whole nother issue. But other than that, if then we get so caught up again, like I'm saying, in the minutiae of Muslim culture, or worrying about what their name is, we start worrying about what they're wearing. And again, if they're wearing something problematic, that's one thing, but if they're just dressed like normal people, then what are we exactly bothering them about? We start, you know, really troubling them with all these different elements of culture. And some things might actually be a part of like our fear, or certain elements of the sinner. But think about what you're losing the forest for the trees, right

00:14:48--> 00:14:58

and so the profits and lobbies own always gave this advice, if they accept the faith and the first thing you instruct them on is the five times daily prayer. Teach them to talk to God.

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

Teach them

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

How to have a relationship with the law how to talk to a lawyer on a daily basis. Faina hamato laka danika. Once they learn to do that, they follow you in that first bedroom and Nevada Florida saga to

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

Tierra de la.

00:15:17--> 00:15:59

Then the profits all of a sudden said, once they pick that up, then instruct them that God has ordained upon them charity, again, build a community, that you take this charity from their wealthy and you distribute it to their poor, thereby building a community of empathy and teaching them that all of us are in this together. And that, again, is quite profound after faith and it's establishing community and empathy for inomata, Allah COVID olika. Once they learn this, and they follow this, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says, Then he gave a few other instruction instructions are very profound. He said for Jaco cara, Emma Amalia.

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

He said, Listen, when you collect there's a cart and their arms, their charity from them, do not take the best of their wealth.

00:16:10--> 00:16:12

Because charity should never feel like a penalty.

00:16:14--> 00:16:25

Charity should never feel like a penalty. Charity is a privilege. It's an honor. It's a good deed. It's a spiritual exercise its benefits. The Giver, the taker, the community, everyone.

00:16:26--> 00:17:01

So even at times in the lifetime the profits a lot. So when he sent someone on the outskirts of Medina to Okay, and somebody had to give like one camel and charity, they had 20 camels so they had to give one camel in charity. Okay, in Zakat, and so when that one camera would come, the one time once a hobby came back in the camel seemed like almost like what we call like a prize animal. It seemed really, really of high quality, high caliber, and the Prophet solavei. Some said, Is this the best animal that that person had? And the Sahabi probably thinking like, yeah, you know, like, he's asking me a question. I'm about to score some points. He said, this was the best camera, that person

00:17:01--> 00:17:04

had the prophets, a lot of them said, then take it back.

00:17:05--> 00:17:10

This is a card, it's not a penalty, and go get a more median camel.

00:17:11--> 00:17:22

Don't bring back the sick, dying diseased animal. But at the same time, don't take the the animal that they that maybe is their means of sustenance, but bring back a median animal

00:17:23--> 00:18:00

at different times of profits a lot. So I'm instructed that if there's an animal that they primarily use for their food, like an animal that they milk, don't bring that animal. The point of giving charity is not to starve to death. How does that benefit others that build community? So that's not the objective. Then the second thing he said was what's up so as a leader, and as the governor, the prophets a lot of the someone's telling him that don't be harsh with your people and be balanced and fair with your people. Don't make your people hate you don't make them hate these institutions of the deen and the religion. But be gentle with them with Chucky Downton McGlone. And then he's

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

reminding him, but also by extension, telling him to teach them but first, he's reminding him, it's in the second person singular. It's you what tucking into

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

what's happening until you need to be very cautious about the prayer of the oppressed.

00:18:20--> 00:18:41

Be very cautious. avoid at all costs, that do are the prayer of the oppressed. Don't you dare ever oppress someone, because when they raise their hands against you, you're done for. So don't do that. Find out who lays Sabina how we're being a lucky day job. There is no barrier between the prayer of the oppressed and God.

00:18:42--> 00:18:47

So be very careful, you're being put in charge. But that ain't no walk in the park.

00:18:48--> 00:18:55

You're not being given free rein to do as you please. You are responsible, you are accountable, you are liable.

00:18:56--> 00:19:01

So be very careful, be very cautious. What profound advice from the prophets a lot.

00:19:03--> 00:19:11

Another thing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he told my admin Jamila, the Allahu taala on when he was sending when he was sending him excuse me,

00:19:12--> 00:19:18

was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him he narrates in his Muslim narrated by

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

the Allahu talana himself that the prophets Allah told them, my Fatty, jannetty Shahada to Allah, Allah, the keys of Paradise, the key to unlocking genda and paradise for people is saying, like

00:19:36--> 00:19:39

the testimony of faith, believing in Allah.

00:19:40--> 00:20:00

And again, the reason why he's emphasizing this to him is that focus on the faith of the people before anything else. Get them to know a law, get them to recognize a law. That's the path to salvation. That's the road to redemption. La ilaha illAllah. In another narration, that is a very famous narration more either way.

00:20:00--> 00:20:29

jevelin the Allahu taala known as the Prophet Allah and there's a couple of different versions of this, the version in the book of Rama Timothy and his jamea in the Muslim development, more admin Jamila subprocessor was instructing him. He then said to the prophets, Allah oseni Rasul Allah, please give me some advice on messenger of Allah. And he and he didn't say uncertainty were oseni like if this was the last advice you were going to give me out of Silla, please What would be the last advice that you give me? He said it tequila hyphema couldn't

00:20:31--> 00:20:55

be conscious of god no matter where or when or how you may be the word Haikou encompasses where no matter where you are, always be conscious of God in Medina, in the heart of Islam, amongst the Muslims sitting next to the Messenger of Allah, be conscious of God. And even if you're out there in the boonies, in the fringes of the oma, the fringes of the community at that time in Yemen,

00:20:57--> 00:21:13

and you're the most knowledgeable person there, you're the leader there, you're in charge that it tequila still be conscious of God, no matter where when it may be. It's now or tomorrow. No matter what the situation is, you're following here. You'll be a leader there. Always be conscious of God.

00:21:15--> 00:21:16

And you'll be okay.

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

Then he said Sydney, Rasul Allah, please give me more or less interval.

00:21:23--> 00:21:27

So the prophets, a lot of them told him as a savior, tell them haha.

00:21:29--> 00:21:39

So beautiful. And look at how he's connecting it. So he said, Be conscious of God live according to duckula consciousness of God, always be careful and cautious.

00:21:40--> 00:21:42

But to areas human,

00:21:43--> 00:22:11

and we are all human. We're not prophets. We're not Massoud, we're not protected by Allah. So what's inevitably going to happen? No matter how cautious you try to be what's inevitably going to happen, you're going to mess up. You're going to slip up, you're going to make a mistake. So you said you will make mistakes. But what you need to remember when you make mistakes, is redeem yourself. It's very sad. He has another tempura, follow that mistake with something good.

00:22:12--> 00:22:26

catch yourself. recognize your mistake, repent for it, and then do something good. Go give some charity go help somebody out. Go assist someone. Show some kindness to someone asked you a segment

00:22:27--> 00:22:39

and they will remove it they will erase it they will clean cleanse you from it. Like the Quran says in Al Hassan adji you have no say yet. Good deeds, remove sins and mistakes.

00:22:40--> 00:22:45

He then said Sydney apostle Allah, increase me on messenger Allah.

00:22:46--> 00:23:12

So the third piece of advice the prophets a lot a Salam said, Okay, this is might be in terms of your interaction with God. So again, look at the coherence, the cohesiveness, the comprehensiveness of the advice of the process. And the third thing he tells her, Well, Holly, can NASA be Hello Can Hassanein and always deal with people with extremely beautiful and excellent character?

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

Always interact with people in the most beautiful exemplary way possible.

00:23:19--> 00:23:20

represent your faith

00:23:22--> 00:23:38

represent your faith. This has so many different layers to it of course the prophets Allah says as cliche film is on the way to his thing in the scales on the Day of Judgment is good character. So in and of itself, this is a good deed. So he's telling him one of the good ways to follow up after a mistake is practice good character.

00:23:40--> 00:23:59

But at the same time secondly, think about specifically more admin Gemological aka gelato. He's being sent out to the outer outer edges of the oma at that time. A lot of non Muslims he told him and like I said that the common alakija when you're about to go to a bunch of non Muslims. So if you want to bring them to Islamic caliphate, Nasser

00:24:01--> 00:24:06

your character in Nicola Allah who can now be extremely powerful advice from the prophets Ali Salaam.

00:24:08--> 00:24:09

In another narration,

00:24:10--> 00:24:14

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam increases some of the advice that he gives to my husband German.

00:24:17--> 00:24:21

He mother and German law the Allahu taala no further as the process of Oh Swami rasulillah

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

Give me more advice on messenger of Allah.

00:24:25--> 00:24:49

So, I've been developing Allahu taala excuse me, he says, Oh Sani Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he actually Kalimantan. He said he gave me 10 pieces of advice. Number one, Carla Latisha Villa, LA to shake Blackie Shea and we're in a hotel. So her Rector. He said never ever associate a partner to God, even if you are killed, even if you are burned alive at the stake.

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

Your faith is who you are and what you have. He said number two, we'll add to our cannavale data. We're in America and remain alcoholic.

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

Do not humiliate and disrespect your parents.

00:25:06--> 00:25:18

Even if they're asking you to do something very, very difficult. He didn't necessarily say that you have to exactly comply with what they're doing. But don't humiliate and disrespect them. There's a difference.

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

There's a difference. You know, somebody's parents are telling them, hey, I want you to drive your car off a cliff.

00:25:26--> 00:25:28

Obviously, don't do that.

00:25:29--> 00:25:36

Right? That's common sense. Do not do that. But you don't have to humiliate them

00:25:38--> 00:25:46

and ridicule them. Well, that's our cannavale deck. Number three, we'll attack to alata through Karna. Salatin mokuba mucha Amida.

00:25:48--> 00:26:07

He said do not deliberately leave your prayer. obligatory prayer for Salah for taraka, Salatin, mokuba tenotomy. Then for the body admin who the motto lucky, somebody who deliberately neglects their obligatory prayer, God, that person is no longer under the protection of God.

00:26:09--> 00:26:47

God disavows that person may Allah protect us. Well actually button hamrun never ever consumed wine, intoxicants. Why for in the hiratsuka leafa shatin. That is the head of all shamelessness and evil what Jaco will Masia, he said Be very careful about committing sins, like falling into the habit of sin failable mousy at a Hindu satola. Because when a person falls into the habit of committing sin, then that person becomes exposed to the wrath of God.

00:26:48--> 00:26:52

What yakko welfare or amenaza fee when holla kindness

00:26:54--> 00:27:18

and never ever flee the battlefield, even if you are suffering defeat. And again, this doesn't mean in terms of strategy, where it might be a particular strategy, but it means deliberately like leaving your brother, your brothers in arms high and dry, just turning your back on them. what you thought of solidness way that's our NASA motoren what enta Fie him fastboot

00:27:20--> 00:27:50

if you are amongst the people, and death comes upon the people, and you're amongst them, like he's basically talking about an illness and epidemic, something like that occurs and you're already in depth. Of course, the profits along with him also taught us about the practice of quarantine. If you're outside, don't go in, but he's saying if you're already in there first, but now stay and do whatever good you can and plus don't go out because you might take that illness out. quite profound. Then he says we're unfair, Carla, YALI come in Toluca

00:27:52--> 00:27:55

to the best of your ability, spend your wealth on your family.

00:27:56--> 00:27:59

Spend your wealth on your family, be generous with your family.

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

Be kind be generous. And again, that within reason, is not talking about going broke, spending on unnecessary luxuries. But it's also talking about the element of not being so stingy, where you cause hardship to your loved ones. What are terrified masaka Devin it particularly also it's kind of a metaphor, but he's also talking about making sure that you also discipline your children. Don't spoil them rotten, but also have some element of discipline.

00:28:30--> 00:28:40

What if home Villa has ever done and lastly, and finally, teach them the consciousness of God? The fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:28:41--> 00:28:50

make sure that they understand and they revere and they respect God's authority and power over them. That is very, very important.

00:28:52--> 00:29:03

In another narration, the prophets a lot he said, I'm in the masala remember Hamad Mahadevan, Jabara de la cusano says that when the Prophet somebody was sending me to Yemen, he specifically told me he Jaco what Tana

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

he said Be very careful about not becoming spoiled by luxury, don't start to live an extravagant luxurious lifestyle, because he said for in a bar the lucky ladies who Bill Martin are a mean, true servants of God, do not chase after the luxuries of in the opulence of this world.

00:29:31--> 00:29:59

Because see, what it's talking about is here. It's not talking about deliberately living in hardship. Like if you can think about how cold it is outside right now. Okay, it's 40 degrees outside, it's cold. Now, you can afford to have a roof over your head, or you can afford to have four walls around you. You can afford to have a heater on but saying like no deliberately spiritually what I'm going to do is I'm going to go live out in an open field in a tent with no heater that

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

It's not a song, nor is that spirituality. What are banning into into the market of nalli. This is a monasticism that God says we did not ever command them to do so. The prophets, a lot of them said la banda de Ville Islam that's not a part of religion of Islam. But that's one extreme. But also, let's be cautious about the other extreme. We're not talking about just living a reasonable existence, we're talking about like chasing particularly after luxuries, and opulence and glitz and glamour, thinking about the amount of energy and time and effort and talent and ability that is expended and trying to do that and achieve that.

00:30:41--> 00:31:15

Now think about how that time and that energy can be better spent. How that can be so much better spent living a meaningful existence, doing good in this world, making the world a better plays helping other people. So that's what he's talking about. The true servants of God are about the rough man like Allah describes them in the Quran. There are people that chase after living a life of luxury and opulence. There are other people who live in meaningful existence. So he's warning wives in general about that particularly, but also that's advice to share with the people as well.

00:31:17--> 00:31:18

And

00:31:19--> 00:31:33

the last piece of kind of instruction that are mentioned here today, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he gave to more admin Javon radi Allahu chillon who

00:31:35--> 00:31:45

was two last things number one is that the prophets a lot of them also talk more admin General de la Catalano Islamia z, well I am.

00:31:46--> 00:31:59

Always make sure that you are working towards increasing Islam and never, you know, decreasing Islam. Make sure the religion never becomes deficient due to you. But you always add something

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

to the respectability of Islam. you contribute to spreading Islam never be the reason why people leave Islam always be the reason why people come to Islam and Islam we used to rely on us, and that's something you have in Islamic is either rely on us, and he told modern German or the Allahu talana you have to make sure that

00:32:21--> 00:32:26

the other thing that's very interesting is that when we're out when Japan or the Allahu taala no arrived in Yemen.

00:32:28--> 00:32:31

The first prayer that he led the people there was selected facha

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

he arrived at night and he led them to salata further, in the morning prayer, he read the verses from Sultan Nisa, in which he said, What to have a luck with Ibrahima Haleakala. He read that verse. And one of the people who heard because they were coming from Christianity and Judaism, he Kitab when he when they heard him read the verse in particular, that verse, what's up at the La Jolla, Manila, one of the people that was listening to the recitation during the prayer, he said, la kurata I know me, Brahim.

00:33:03--> 00:33:12

He said that this probably brought great joy to the mother of Ibrahim. But it was his way of basically appreciating that the Muslims are honoring the prophets of the past.

00:33:14--> 00:33:52

See the prophets, a lot of them taught this type of, like intelligence and wisdom to his companions, that when when when we're either in Dublin or the Allahu turon, who went there, and he knew that there were 100 Kitab and he's leading the prayer and he knew they were all going to be listening. What does the Quran say? What does he recite? What did they say in their prayer, he recited the verse that praised Ibrahim Ali Salaam, that gotcha Abraham as his close, beloved friend, and they appreciated that they were respecting the prophets of the past. It's quite profound. Now the last big, you know, instruction that prophets a lot of them gave to modern devil or the Allahu taala. No,

00:33:52--> 00:34:24

and this is really, really profound. This narration is found in the Southern Nevada within the jammy RV from Timothy in the Muslim living by Mohammed. It's an authentic narration in which the prophets a lot of a sudden has a conversation with my husband, Kevin. So this is almost like the quiz that he's giving him right before he departs. So he's been giving him he's been teaching and for all these years, nine years, he gave him all this advice, and now he quizzes. And this quiz is really profound, because this quiz is quite literally the foundation of Islamic law, what we call Zulu

00:34:26--> 00:34:38

the principles of Islamic jurisprudence. This quiz this conversation of the prophets a lot more admin Devin serves as a foundation of our azula in our in our jurisprudence.

00:34:40--> 00:34:43

He asked him gave us law in law

00:34:44--> 00:34:48

gave us now Yamaha's in our other law.

00:34:49--> 00:35:00

If you are you a case is brought to you. If a case is brought to you. There's a question there's an issue. There's a dispute case, let us know what are you going

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

To do

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

so admin juggalo delicata nonresponse, aka BB MFI. Kita Bella, I will address the issue in light of what I find in the book of God. I will look in the Quran and find the answer there.

00:35:17--> 00:35:35

Now the prophets Allah Islam says something that is really profound and we all need to listen very carefully. And for a lot of Muslims, it's something it's a huge learning opportunity. He says for a Lamia configured Allah. The prophets Allah dismisses What if the answer to the question you're being asked is not in the Quran.

00:35:36--> 00:35:39

As somebody might say, What are you talking about?

00:35:40--> 00:35:41

Everything's in the

00:35:42--> 00:35:44

grind is everything. What?

00:35:47--> 00:35:54

What are you talking about? What do you mean the Quran Sameera for? No, no, no. He's talking about the explicit answer to a question. There's a difference

00:35:56--> 00:36:21

in terms of principles, ethics, everything is addressed in the Quran. It gives an umbrella it gives a framework okay. But in terms of explicit specific answers, he says failed and he failed them. Yeah, configurable? Ah, what if it's not in the Quran? He says, Carl fob similar to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam. I will then look in the practice and the tradition of the Messenger of God. The Sunnah.

00:36:23--> 00:36:35

Now look what the prophet says. And again, blow your hair back. He says for eliminate confusion methanosarcina the prophets of Allah, what if you don't find the entering the cinema?

00:36:37--> 00:36:43

As somebody on the internet just had a fit? What do you mean, the sooner everything's in the sun now?

00:36:44--> 00:37:02

Right? mineral, but that's not what the prophets are law. These are again, principles, ethics, a framework is given to us. But the explicit answer to every question is not going to be there. That's an unreasonable expectation. So he's saying the answer specifically, explicitly is not given into some other what you're going to do.

00:37:04--> 00:37:08

So Marvin deloading, Allahu taala. And he says, HTTP ye.

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

I will then apply my intellect

00:37:13--> 00:37:17

he had what we call scholarly analysis.

00:37:18--> 00:37:53

What is scholarly academic analysis, you look at the Quran, you look at the center, you look at the principles, the ethics, the guidelines, similar scenarios laid out in the Quran, the principles, the guidelines, the ethics and similar scenarios addressing the some not and then by looking at that you study that you dissected you analyze it, and then you find an answer or a solution to this particular issue that you are faced with and he said, Well, I do and I will not like I will exhaust all my efforts in doing so, I will persist that I will persist.

00:37:56--> 00:38:04

When the profits all the time I heard this answer. The quiz was applied. What was the grade he got for Coronavirus ally salary salary?

00:38:05--> 00:38:08

My admin general says the profits a lot even patted me on the chest.

00:38:09--> 00:38:11

Good job, good man.

00:38:12--> 00:38:20

And he said from McCall Alhamdulillah hymnody wafaa Rasulullah sallallahu ala Ud rasulillah Allah,

00:38:22--> 00:38:31

all praises for God, the one who guided the ambassador, the representative of the Messenger of God,

00:38:32--> 00:38:36

to know what to do in a way that would be pleasing to the Messenger of God.

00:38:39--> 00:38:51

And so he approved of this and this conversation literally serves as the foundation for the entire science, the discipline of what we call solution. So profound and so beautiful.

00:38:53--> 00:39:01

Now as beneficial as this entire conversation was, and as much as we benefited from it. The conversation concluded

00:39:04--> 00:39:07

the conversation concluded with something

00:39:08--> 00:39:10

very, very

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

Yes.

00:39:14--> 00:39:18

The conversation concluded with something that is very

00:39:19--> 00:39:21

heart wrenching.

00:39:23--> 00:39:24

Very heart wrenching.

00:39:26--> 00:39:28

The way this particular conversation concluded

00:39:30--> 00:39:31

was that

00:39:33--> 00:39:46

when we're up in Japan or the Allahu taala and who was heading out he says my either the Allahu Allahu says, Raja ma who you see and the rasa Sangha Raja ma who usually

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

he says the prophets a lot is exited Medina with me. He would see people off he would see people in the process. It was a very gracious person. So he said he walked me out. kept giving

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

Advice kept giving me advice kept getting advice

00:40:04--> 00:40:12

and he said eventually he told me all right now time to get on the right time to head out. So I figured this was where he was gonna see me off from

00:40:13--> 00:40:14

so I got on the ride

00:40:16--> 00:40:20

expecting the process I was just gonna wave me in cinema a COMM And then I would head off

00:40:21--> 00:40:26

but then after I got on the ride the profits a lot of a sudden took the reins of the Campbell

00:40:28--> 00:40:30

Martin Rockman was realized a lot hmm

00:40:32--> 00:40:35

he took the reins of the Campbell and he started walking.

00:40:36--> 00:40:45

And Mahadevan gentlemen Allahu Allah Who said I felt very uncomfortable obviously some messenger of God he said say I needed to talk to you about something

00:40:46--> 00:40:47

and then he told him

00:40:48--> 00:40:50

he said yeah more Earth

00:40:52--> 00:40:55

in the Casa Allah tala ani badami. haha

00:40:57--> 00:40:58

you might not meet me again.

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

You might not meet me again. And then he said well are aloka and Tamara be mushy de Hadar. cabri

00:41:08--> 00:41:13

he said the next time you come and you pass by my mustard you will also find my grave.

00:41:14--> 00:41:17

Por La Liga and Tamara be mushy de la cabaret.

00:41:19--> 00:41:25

And more either the Allahu taala on who he said for bacame Odin Joshua on

00:41:26--> 00:41:37

what are the Allahu taala No, he said he cried like a child cries like sobbing and weeping. Now a child cry no holds barred.

00:41:38--> 00:41:43

We as adults try to restrict in holding said watches fell apart.

00:41:44--> 00:41:46

Leafy rocky rasulillah has allowed

00:41:48--> 00:41:53

for the separation of the messenger Salamis that this would be the last moment you would see the process.

00:41:55--> 00:42:08

But you know what the process I'm told him he said lads have KMR Do not cry friend. Do not cry. Yamaha. He said Little buka one and there are times for crying.

00:42:09--> 00:42:22

Well, because I'm gonna say Tom, but crying right now. That's shaytaan distracting you? I need you to focus on the mission. You got work to do. There'll be a time you can mourn me and cry for me later.

00:42:24--> 00:42:27

Right now I need you to do your job. You got work to do.

00:42:30--> 00:42:32

Think about what he would have given to just stay

00:42:34--> 00:42:40

share some last few moments with the prophet SAW so but this is what the process I'm taught the oma. We got work to do.

00:42:42--> 00:43:11

But what did the prophets a lot of them tell his companions? What did he tell his family members? What did he tell the people who sacrificed even earlier in Makkah, like he told the family of the asset sobre la acid in the Merida community now we'll all be together in paradise. We will be together we'll be together in paradise but right now we got work to do. And in fact that's exactly what all the books of Hadith Sierra history or document

00:43:13--> 00:43:56

that will add when God Allahu Allah and who Casali kawakawa he did not meet the prophets of Salaam again, find out who accountable Yemen hacia cannot have written without. He stayed in Yemen to do the job the processor had given him how jetten widow happened from mechanics refer to salatu salam, and then the prophets a lot of them passed away 81 days after the Hajj and what admin devil was still in Yemen and he would eventually return back to Medina. Exactly as the prophets a lot of them have told him. He would return back to Medina when Abu Bakr radi Allahu talana was Khalifa and the prophets a lot of them had departed from this world. And later on while I've been developed, the

00:43:56--> 00:44:43

Allahu talana would be sent by Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala no to a sham to continue the work that the prophets a lot of them have trained him for and continued to spread and teach us on. So this is that very remarkable conversation and moment when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he sent more I've been developing Allahu taala and who, to Yemen to go there teach to people, as I mentioned, can accardi undeniably somebody's son William and he was the copy of the people, the Islamic judge of the people Hackman feel a hurdle to govern over them and lead them almost subdeacon and he was also the distributor of charity, elated Pharaoh saw the art they would he would gathered the Zakat and

00:44:43--> 00:45:00

distributed amongst the people look at the kind of bodies and in NASA who suddenly became a salvato comes. He used to go out and lead the people in the five times daily prayers, just exactly as the prophets a lot of them had instructed him. May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with him. And with that, in

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

Shall we conclude this try to remember all the remarkable beautiful advice or prophets a lovely song gave and as powerful and profound as the love of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is a true expression of His love is to do what he asked us to do.

00:45:15--> 00:45:49

Like he said, there are times when it is appropriate to just sit and cry. But then there's time to get up and roll up your sleeves and do the good work of the messengers allottee some and that's an important part of his legacy, and an important part of what he instructed us to do. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us all to be ambassadors, true ambassadors of the prophets a lot. And may Allah subhanaw taala give us the ability to grant us the ability to practice everything we've said and heard Subhan Allah who will be hungry he Subhana Allah Mohammed ik Nationale de la ilaha illa Anta Asafa governor Bullock
