Allah, Allah Allah Allah infinite.
We praise Allah subhanahu wata Allah. We seek His help, and we seek his forgiveness.
And we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the sins and from the evil that resides within within us, and from the evil that results from our sins. Whomsoever Allah subhanahu wata Allah guide, Nanjo misguide and whomsoever Allah subhanaw taala allows to be led astray. The nun shall guide them back to the straight path. I bear witness that there is no God worthy of worship except Allah and that bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his messenger. Allah tells us in the Quran, oh you believe your last contact as he should be feared and do not die except as Muslims or mankind. Fear Allah subhanho wa Taala
for he has created you from
One knifes from one soul and from it has created its mate. And from it many men and many women and fear Allah subhanho wa Taala by the rights that you ask one another, and by the rights through the wounds that have born you, very last round Allah is Ever Watchful over you. Oh you who believe. If you're less powerful to Allah, be God conscious and speak the truth, you will render your deeds righteous and he will forgive your sins and whoever obeys Allah subhanahu wata Allah and His Messenger has achieved a great victory. Barely the best speech is a speech of Allah. And the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and the worst affairs are those that are
innovated in the religion for all of that is misguidance all misguidance leads to hell.
On the authority of Sahel had been sad companions of the Prophet SAW Salem was one time sitting with his companions mandala module on a man pass by in front of them. The Prophet SAW salem said, Man
What do you say about this person? And then they said, The companion said, Hurry Yoon.
In Hapa, Yonka. We're in tech Halima, and you smile. We're in shefa, you shuffle.
This person, if he
sought the marriage
of any woman, he would be married, he would be given.
And if he speaks, they listened to him. And if He intercedes his intercession
would be accepted for a secretary to be useful Allahu alayhi wa sallam, to mama or Julian alpha. In the process. Lm he didn't say anything. And then another man passed by another time and he said, well, not to coluna if he had
and what do you say about this person?
And he said, and they said, Messenger of Allah,
in Hatha Hurrian, in Hatha Allah, Yonka, winterkill lemma, Allah, you smack.
What Insha Allah, you chuffed that if he sought the hand in marriage, of some woman who could never be married, no one's going to accept it. And if he speaks, no one listens. And if He intercedes, his intercession is not accepted.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the narration he said, well let enough CVAD and by the one who possesses my soul in his hands,
how the hell you don't mean mill already mean Mythili had this second person.
This second man
that you said, was pretty much in their terms a loser, he is better in the eyes of Allah he is
than it if the whole world
was filled with the likes of the first person.
Brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not here just making comments about people. He's trying to teach his companions about an important concept
of two different men.
And that our perceived judgments of these people are not always true. We look at someone we look at the way how they dress, we look at the car they have we think about oh, they live in such such such and such subdivision in such and such neighborhood. And we make conclusions in our head that so and so must be successful or so and so must be otherwise.
And this hadith brothers and sisters really teaches us about a concept that is lost. And that is The Art of Manliness.
And for the sisters that are here, you might say well, you know, this doesn't really apply to me. Yes it does. Because this is not only speaking to men, but this also applies to sisters as well. But more importantly sister if you're not married, this is what you want to look for in your husband in your future husband inshallah. And if you are married sister then make sure you tell this your husband
and I really believe that this
concept of the The Art of Manliness in Islam,
we can benefit from it because
you will be a better husband to your wife.
You will be a better son to your mother, you will be a better father to your daughter and you will be a better brother to the sisters.
Brothers and sisters.
Let's look at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
When you look into CRM when you look into Shamal, you find that the Prophet SAW Selim, despite as the LMS said that he was the best man ever created. The Prophet SAW Selim was not extremely huge and tall. He was not so physically muscular and large.
The Prophet sallallahu sallam was a medium height, an Imam and Timothy he narrates that he was actually slightly higher than the average person taller than the average person, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't stand out from the rest of the people. And yes, the pumps are Selim was given the miracle of the strength of 40 people or 40 men.
But that's because that's a miracle from Allah subhanho wa taala.
And so, physical stature, whether you whether you can benchpress 300 pounds, or whether you can to bench press 45 pounds, just the bar alone, that doesn't define your masculinity.
We look into story of the Buddha Alayhi Salatu was Salam and the story of his counterpart Giroud Goliath
jello to this big towering
and David was small and skinny and not too big, but yet Allah subhanaw taala willed that he would defeat this big thing called Goliath
so stature is not make it's not what makes you more of a man you have a six pack Masha Allah good for you. I have a one pack that doesn't make me less
okay during the time of the Prophet SAW Salem Abdullah ibn Masaru and by the way, but I'm not saying that you shouldn't be physically fit. I'm not saying that you should be physically fit the puffs of Selim says I will move me No, we are happy Allah. Muslim that is strong, physically strong and healthy is beloved to Allah and one that is weak of course. But what I'm saying is don't think that because mashallah you can benchpress 800 pounds, that you are a juggler now that you are in my shoulder stud, fattening food, you know, that everyone just wants to look up at you and be like, Wow.
During the time the person Selim Abdullah did this road was one time climbing a tree. And I'm still living this road was not very muscular and large.
He went up to the tree to grab a branch from the for like a miss whack, and this when came and blew, and some of his
legs were exposed, and some of the companions started laughing. I mean, got saggy from how small his legs were. And the Prophet SAW Selim says, minute of Harpoon, what are you laughing about? They says, yeah, that'd be alarming.
Oh, because look at his legs. The Prophet SAW Selim, he says, By Allah, those two legs are heavier in the eyes of Allah than the mountain of
in another narration, the prophesy Selim tells us that manliness is not something about how you appear, it's not how you dress specifically, although in Allah Jamila, you have bull Jamal, Allah is beautiful, and he loves beauty
and the process of elimination, he looked at a Buddha love the fairy. And he said,
If I Basara, raise your eyesight, and look in the masjid, who do you think is the most noble here? And he said, that one. And this person was decked out in his finery, and his martial law and all the things on him looking so amazing. And then the processor didn't say anything. And he said to him, now tell me who do you think in this machine looks the most ignoble. And he pointed to this person that, you know, wasn't dressed as nice. And the prophets of salaam said,
This person is still better than the other person. So it's not just about your appearances. But then Sisters, we know in Surah Gath, about the story of the two men who were blessed with gardens between them.
Right. And one of them would say to the other, UK federal mean Kanalen
I have more money than you and I have more men on my side.
And the other man later on in the conversation, if you read, he says
you see that I have less wealth and less children than you. And so So what does this mean? that
society has its way of planting preconceived notions in our head of what makes a person appear to be successful.
And so, that is why brothers and sisters, let us examine in a second cookbook, about the life of the process LM and what he taught us
of what it means
to practice the art of manliness from his life Salallahu Alaihe Salam?
hamdulillahi rabbil aalameen While are people to limit 13 101 illallah wa Alameen wa Chateau La ilaha illallah wa doko la sharika wa shadow under Muhammad Abdul Hua Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala early he was a heavy assault and imata Muslim or rotten, sir Medea tun Isla yo Medina was that
during the time of the Prophet Salam,
a Bedouin came out of the desert. He came to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he said to him,
do linea Allah Emmeline
either our mill to the whole tool Janna messenger of Allah inform me of an action
or basically telling me what to do,
so that when I do it,
I will enter Jannah
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him,
that you affirm
that the Oneness of Allah
is without any partners,
and that you establish your Salah that you pay yours occa and in another generation, and that you fast your Ramadan. And he didn't include Haji yet, because it was not part of that discussion yet.
And then the man said, when Liddy Botha could bill Huck and by the one who has sent you the truth,
I will I shall not increase or do more than what you have said. Nor will I do less than what you have said.
And for those of you here, you might think well, we all know that
we are Muslims, we pray with us, from Allah, etcetera. But if you think about these three things,
there are three different areas, Salah is your relationship between you and Allah knowing about your priority.
Zeca is really about
social justice and where you are responsible in helping other people.
And fasting is really a combination of both because you're building empathy.
You're purifying yourself, so on and so forth. And then the Prophet sallallaahu Salam saw that this man turned around and he left.
He went back into the desert.
And then the process Salam, he said,
Men sarva a young boy, Isla Raju Lin
mean a Helene Jana
fell young war ILAHA
the pastor sallam said, whoever would like to see a man
who is from Jana, then look at this person.
What is this hadith mean? What does it mean to us? It means that you here in this Masjid
whom Allah Subhana Allah Allah has commanded only the men to come to Joomla and not the women.
You have to know that your responsibility is knowing how to prioritize you
redeeming your dunya prioritizing your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala knowing you knowing yourself of what you have to do
that at the end of the day, Allah subhanho wa Taala comes first. At the end of the day your deen comes first. Mina Mina, Reja

they, they they bear witness, and they were truthful to what Allah has promised them in the fact that what is that promise that if they live out,
that if they live out their duty to worship Allah subhanaw taala Jana will not outlive them, right?
For Amina who mencoba and some of those, they continue struggling worshipping Allah subhanaw taala until they passed away, I mean, who may unfold it and some people are just still you know, in life struggling worshipping less pantalla will not but diluted deal and they do not stray they do not go away from that message.
A lot of times, brothers some,
they like to.
They like to invoke this verse, and it's very unfortunate, because they use this verse in in appropriately and incorrectly to exert their dominance.
Or there's presumed a favor of themselves over themselves over woman
and they like to call diverse outreach Iloka why Munna Allah Nisa
that men are established protectors of over women.
And men have over women one, one degree only. And it's like Allah subhanho wa Taala did not use this verse for you to subjugate to the other gender was found to Allah use this verse to put on your shoulders a responsibility
that you as men you are supposed to take care of your family. The pastor Selim says hi Eurocom Hallo Coonley will earn a higher income the early I the best among you are the best your family so taking care of your family is your top priority
and I am the best to my family this is what the process is saying about himself
that you don't put your job over your family of priorities

brothers and sisters
we live in a time where speaking the truth is a very
sought after characteristic standing up for the truth.
Defending the weak
standing up for those who are oppressed. Because a lot of times we're conditioned to think mad honey Anna, it's not my business. It's not my problem. I'm just minding my own business. I'm just worrying about myself.
And it's that apathy brothers and sisters, that is a problem.
We look in the life of Musa alayhi salatu salam
after they frown threatened Musa
this man who was a believer from Allah frown yet to my Eman he was hiding his fate because you knew you will be oppressed. He stood up for Musa
he says attack to Luna Rajan Robbie Allah, are you going to kill someone who says Allah is my Lord?
And in the same story of Musa la salsa, we find that Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us of another man who came to warn Musa of frowns,
plots and machinations
with Roger learning Axel Medina tea. Yes, sir. A man came from the farthest of the city running to Musa Talia Musa in Ramallah, Cameroon, a big vehicle to look that the people have thrown their plotting against you.
Brothers and sisters, the Prophet SAW Salem
despite being the strongest man, he was very much in touch with his emotions. He
Didn't suppress his emotions, letting your emotions come forth when you are sad. That's not weakness.
When the pastor Selim son passed away, he cried. He didn't say oh crying is for weak people. He let his emotions come forth.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as described by Aisha of the Allahu anha. How did he keep his emotions under control? That he never hit anyone? Oh my god, oh, but
he never hit anyone, and never hit a woman and he never hit to a servant.
And another nation we find that the prophets of salaam Mark Hanabusa selesa. He should omit the fact that the Prophet SAW Selim didn't have
bad language for example, you know, sometimes we look at someone and you know, they start using bad language and very colorful language. And we think that you know, they're exercising their right to free speech, etc. No.
And yet, this is Mohamed salah, how many people have come to anger him, and he watched what he said. But then sisters,
when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was at the beginning of his message,
when Gibreel came to him
and he was in a state of fright.
He went back to Egypt, and he said,
wrap me up.
And he was afraid of what was going on. And what the Allahu Allah say to him.
Kola, know, Allah subhanaw taala will never humiliate you.
Allah will never humiliate you. Why? Number one, because you keep good relations with your relatives,
and that you are honest. And you help those who are in need.
And you support the weak
and you feed those are hungry and another narration, you are generous to your guests, and you help those who are in distress. So brothers and sisters, allow us to learn from the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim, the true art of prophetic manliness so that we will be better people in our worship to Allah subhanho wa Taala in Allah Who melodica who you saw Lunarlon Abbey, you Hello the domino Sallu alayhi wa sallam with a steamer.
