All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala
we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala and
we seek His help, and we seek his forgiveness
and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evil that is within ourselves, as well as the evil that results from our sins, whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala guides. None show misguide them, and whomsoever Allah subhanaw taala allows to be led astray.
The no one will be able to guide them back to the straight path. Ask Allah, I bear witness that Allah subhanaw taala is the only deity worthy of worship, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger and Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
During the time of the Prophet SAW Salem,
we see that the Companions demonstrated
feats when it came to showing their devotion once they had submitted to Allah subhanho wa taala.
And this came in the form of
it came in the form of defending the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It came in the form of
sacrificing themselves in the battlefields.
They came in the form of
putting their faith above their tribal expectations.
But one of the greatest sacrifices witnessed by other nations
was how much the Sahaba how much the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim? Love the Rasul sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
You find it in the Hadith.
You find in the narrations are pathetic narrations, a plethora of examples where we find the companion saying things such as feedback Abby will Mijares will Allah my parents be ransom for you messenger of Allah. What does that mean? That's not us. That's not something that we say in English to the people. In other words,
the companions were trying to say
that they would even give up their own parents.
For the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
a heavy statement.
And the brothers Allah Allah your Salam tells us in a beautiful Hadith, he says, on the authority of NSP Malik
and we have to think about who this narrator is NSB Malik was this young man who was the servant to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he had a very special relationship with horses, in the sense that he helped the process alum and the foster Selim was his mentor.
And so the promises are Limsa
let me know I had to come had Hakuna LA. Meanwhile, Edie he led when Nazi Germany
none of you will have completed your faith. It doesn't mean that the person is out of the fold of Islam. It means the person will not have complete faith
until you love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than your children more than your parents more than all the people on earth.
And we have heard of this hadith before. We know of the meaning and the importance of it.
Ba Marathi Allahu Taala and was walking with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he said messenger of Allah. I love you.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looked at him and he said, Yeah, Omar, and you have to remember who this is. This is
one of the most direct individuals among the companions of the Prophet Salem so direct. He never mince his his words.
And the pastor said, I'm looking at him and said, more than your children.
I'm not even hotter. I've said Yes, more than my children.
And then he said, Yeah, Omar,
more than your parents.
You said yes.
Said Omar Yama, more than yourself.
And the prophets of Allah one paused and he said,
messenger of Allah No, not more than myself. peasy. If you think about it, it is part of the human instinct to save yourself.
And the prophesy Selim says not yet Omar. Not yet.
Amaro de la who went away, thought about it, did some serious reflection about his faith, about the meaning of
loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And then he came back into the mystery that he stood in the middle of the masjid and he says by Allah Ya rasool Allah, I love you more than I love myself.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,
Now or more, it is now
that almost faith is now complete.
Brothers and sisters.
Loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is an important aspect of our religion. Without the love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. There is no Islam. There is no Eman and there is no sun.
prophets Salam was Sayed.
Well, Adam, he was the best of the children of Adam. The pastor Selim says, and I say you do well at the Adam, while Africa person would say I am the best of all the children of Adam, and there is no boasting when I say that, these are the words of the prophets as we know from the Quran, Allah tells us what Enoch Allah Allah Julio quinoline, for indeed you are of the most exalted in character.
And we know from the Quran that the Prophet SAW Selim was forgiven for the past, the present and in the future.
leovera Allah, Allah Martha Donna mean them big.
Are you Team many amateur who Allah and He will bestow and complete the favor of Allah upon him? We had Yeka sawed off from studying and He will guide you to the straight path.
The brothers and sisters
if it wasn't because of Allah's mercy and Allah's guidance,
and then the sending of Muhammad sallahu alayhi wa sallam, to this world, none of us here would be sitting in this Masjid.
None of you would be Muslims.
Only Allah knows what religion I would be. Only Allah knows what religion, you would be. So far as we know, the Middle East would probably have most of them were Christians. By that time, they would probably have stayed on Christianity.
My folks would probably probably be a communist.
People from the subcontinent would be following whatever religions we're in the subcontinent.
Think about this moment right now the fact that Allah guided you to come to Salah to Juma
who taught us this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the prophets of Salem was stoned. The pastor Salem his life was endangered. The rest of Salem was under the threat of assassination multiple times.
During the Battle of better
the process Selim said, Oh Allah if this group of Muslims are to be killed today, you will never be worshipped on the planet on this face of the earth on this on this planet.
So isn't it at least a little bit
that we should give our thanks to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam for what he has done for us every way to Paradise. The pastor Selim showed us
every way that leads to hellfire May Allah protect us. The process, Selim warned us of it.
And that is why brothers and sisters.
One of the things that many parents must teach their children
as important as making whoodle As important as making Salah as important as knowing the five pillars of Islam is to teach your children to send Salah and salam upon the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is an important aspect that many parents do not think about. They will teach it when they have to teach the salah when they have to sit down they have to read the Tisha hood they teach them that part, but they never actually teach them the importance that you should make it your habit.
Especially on July to say Allahumma Salli, ala Muhammad, Allah, Allah, Allah Muhammad
and inshallah in the second hotel we'll talk about some of the meanings of this and explore the importance of this a political philosopher
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam, Ala shielfield MBO Mazuri nabina, Muhammad Allah Allah.
Allah tells us in the Quran and Sunnah Tala has a in Allah Allah Eketahuna saloon, Allah Nabhi Verily, Allah and His Angels send blessings upon the Prophet.
There's actually two interpretations of this. The first interpretation is Allah sins Salah which we'll explore explain a lot and seller upon the Prophet, and the angels do the same.
The other interpretation of this verse according to the scholars have to seed is Allah send Salah and salam upon Muhammad wa salam, and the angels ask Allah to do the same.
That the angels are asking Allah to send Salah and salam upon the Prophet sallahu wa salam. And so Allah tells us because Allah does it and
The angels do it.
Allah says yeah, you're letting you know Oh you who believe Solu Allah He was selling with a slimmer son Salah and salam upon the processor. Some people might say we don't know what it means. What does it mean to say? Send a salah upon Mohammed salah. How do you send Salah onto the process Allah, you have to look at it from the Arabic perspective. The word Salah in Arabic means dua. So when you say Allahumma Salli, ala Muhammad, you are asking Allah to send a DUA and Baraka upon Mohamed Salah Salem. That's what it means. And another interpretation, you are asking Allah to praise Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in front of the angels.
And sending the salam upon the process Salam is very straightforward to send the peace upon Muhammad Rasul Allah. So this is a direct connection that we have every day in Salah when we pray five times a day, we sit down and we say this, why because everything that we are practicing in Islam is part of the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So much so that we say that we say the salah and the salam upon prophesy Salam in our janazah
in the Hotspurs.
The Prophet SAW Selim warned us about this.
And he said
Alba Filo, men, though here to end the whole film use Ali Ali, the stingy one, and in our culture, we are all about hospitality. The boss has said and says the stingy one. The Selfish one is the one who hears my name being mentioned and does not send salatu salam upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, make it your habit brothers and sisters.
Another aspect of this is that the prophesy Salam tells us that one of the miracles of his prophet hood is that whenever you say it, actually the angels convey it to the parts of Salam. And he responds it in the way that Allah knows how the person Selim responds higher to embody the fear.
We also know in another narration of the process alum that
the one who sends Salah
10 times in the morning, this is in trouble Ronnie this hadith 10 times in the morning, and 10 times in the evening. It's it's as simple as saying Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad
10 times in the morning 10 times in the evening, you will get the ability to seek the intercession of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Day of Judgment. So easy when you're driving your car to go to work in the morning, say 10 times Allahumma Salli, ala Muhammad, Ali Muhammad, as simple as that brothers and sisters.
And finally, brothers and sisters.
The etiquette of how one should say it is obviously to link it with your entire identity as a Muslim, to understand, like we mentioned that everything that you do, everything that you have learned so far, is by the grace of Allah, and by the guidance brought by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So today, especially on Friday, the pastor said have encouraged us to do this. So on your way back from back to work and on your way home in sha Allah send peace and blessings upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam in Allah maloca W Soluna and then viola de la mano solo alayhi wa sallam waters Lima not been attina for dunya hacer una Warfield.
