00:00:06--> 00:00:08

salatu salam ala rasulillah

00:00:11--> 00:00:13

salam ala Sayidina Muhammad in

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

Alabama and from now on for now.

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

Armenia Kareem from the surgery was silly Emily was opposite me Listen you have cocconi or obesity or ailment or obesity or ailment or obesity Nima. Allahumma salli. ala Madhya alto Salah wanted a dragon has not either she said I welcome all to this talk on the salaat upon the Prophet alayhi salatu salam sending Salawat upon Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said no.

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

Now,

00:00:46--> 00:00:56

before we even get into sending Salam upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have to think a little bit bit about them upon the station of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:00:57--> 00:01:04

We know that Allah or Buddha is that he was gentle had chosen certain people from amongst the human race.

00:01:05--> 00:01:48

And among the few that Allah azza wa jal had chosen as messengers, the greatest of all of those messengers happens to be our messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam quite clearly mentioned this in a Hadith, in which he said that NSA you do one or the other wonderful. I happen to be the master of the children of Adam, and there is no boasting that I'm doing over here. This happens to be the reality. When we think about the perfection of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Remember that assignable Sabbath, the poet of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say, What is an omen Kalam tarraco what he meant Omen Kalam,

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

tele denisa Julio

00:01:53--> 00:02:33

Julio katsumata show that more perfect than you Oh messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam My eyes have never seen more beautiful than you own a sort of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam women have never given birth to, you've been created free of all defects is if it's as if you've been created, just as you yourself had pleased to be created. We think and we see that people who are just yesterday, disbelievers, they would come before the messenger sallallahu it will settle and be in his company and not even completely just for a couple of days. And they will accept Islam. And to this effect is the story of thermometer.

00:02:34--> 00:02:37

After the Battle of hunt duck, he came to

00:02:38--> 00:03:08

he came to the outskirts of Medina and he was taking in as a captive and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought him to his mosque and placed him in his mosque. And he stayed there for a day, another day, a third day. And on the third day after just a few conversations with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said to him, that by Allah before today, there was not a face that was more disgusting to me than your face. And today it has become the most beloved of faces to me.

00:03:09--> 00:03:37

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when people would meet that meet him, they would begin to love him. And that's why I'm so happy. He says that Malala who bet he hadn't had the who woman Hala who had the who whoever would see the profits a lot while he was sitting them just like that, by chance. They would. They would fear him. From a distance, he would be feared because the Prophet had an aura

00:03:38--> 00:04:26

of a leader. But woman Hanako humeri fetid hebda, who and whoever would meet the prophets of Allah while he was setting them and get to know the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, that person would begin to love the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, we know the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam was so perfect that every single detail of his life has been reported to us every single detail of his life, if the inner aspects of our own lives were to be presented to public, we know that there's a lot of things would have to be shared, right? every single detail of the life of the profits of the law where it was sitting, and even the personal life, even how he used to be even how the profits on the level

00:04:26--> 00:04:46

that he was setting them would get become intimate with his spouses, even that has been reported to us with great detail. And this was done not so that the privacy of the profit would be unveiled so that it becomes an example for us. Because a lot told us that the profits SLM happens to be the best example for us. How do you salatu salam,

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

the prophets of Allah while he was setting them is that perfect man who embodies human perfection in every single angle, when you look at the physical physiques of the prophets of Allah

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

When he was sending them, the profits or send them is as perfect as humans can become physically. When we think about the strength of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is the strongest man to ever have lived. And in that time there was a man by the name of little Ghana, he thought he was stronger than the prophet SAW Selim. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pinned him once pinned him twice, and pinned him a third time to show him that you're not the strongest man. The prophets Allah said it was the most intelligent person who was ever born in the history of mankind, and who will ever be born for the future as well. The Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam was the most pleasant when

00:05:41--> 00:05:58

it comes to his older so much so that some of those who have I would take from the sweat of the prophets, Allah said to them and they would use it as perfume. The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam was perfect in all of these ways. He was the embodiment of true perfection.

00:06:00--> 00:06:10

When we know this, then we understand why Allah subhana wa tada tells us, in the Quran, to sense a lot upon the prophets of Allah. Allah Subhana Allah tells us

00:06:12--> 00:06:13

in the Quran

00:06:15--> 00:06:19

in the LA where mela Ikeda who you saw Luna Allah Nabhi

00:06:20--> 00:06:24

Yeah, you have levena Armand Salalah alayhi wa sallam Otis Lima.

00:06:26--> 00:07:04

Indeed, Allah azzawajal and his angels, all of them. You saw Luna Island Navy, they send Salutations, they send salaat upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Yeah, you will levena Armand Oh, who you believe suddenly he was suddenly Moses Lima. sense a lot upon the Prophet SAW Selim. And also send the peace, upon a sort of loss of love where it will settle. You see, if we just talk today about this verse, we'll find so much benefit within it. To understand how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or how we are being told to praise the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.

00:07:05--> 00:07:11

Allah starts this verse off by telling us that in Aloha, Indeed, Allah azza wa jal,

00:07:13--> 00:07:37

and that shows us an emphasis because the word in is supposed to show you a bit of emphasis. Essentially, Allah starts the sentence off in an emphatic way, telling us that this is something that is really important, a larger agenda of all people. We said that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the embodiment of human perfection, a lot infinite perfection.

00:07:39--> 00:07:43

You see, human perfection, still has to come with imperfection.

00:07:44--> 00:07:46

Because there's a human aspect of it.

00:07:48--> 00:08:31

It still has to come with imperfections. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the beautiful face of the prophet in the Battle of Earth was scarred the teeth of the prophets are sending them was scarred. And this was all to show us that one day, the most perfect of humans will also be imperfect, because he happens to be in some capacity because he happens to be a human at the end of the day. But Allah is infinite perfection. So alized origin is about to do something that this matter, this matter must be a very serious matter. It must be a very important matter. And that's why law starts by saying, in a law, indeed, a lot of publicity.

00:08:32--> 00:08:45

And not just a lot of publicity, algernon. Wha hoo, and all of the angels of Allah visit you in general as well. Okay, so a lot and the angels of Allah, all of them do this. What do they do?

00:08:47--> 00:09:13

You also Luna Allah Nabi. And by the way, the word Angel over here, the Earth Angels over here, it happens to be a plural. And it is a colossal buffet. And that is in also in fifth among the ways to denote generality. So this means that all of the angels without exception happened to be within this verse in the law, and all of the angels of Allah, so which one mother?

00:09:14--> 00:09:57

And a law didn't say in the law, how well, he Cata he said in the law, he can, Indeed Allah as origin and his angels. And why is that? Because Allah has the origin wants to further glorify his own angels. You see, if I happen to be a leader, and I say, these are my men, and these are my workers, for instance, or these are people that happen to be in my cabinet, the fact that I am the leader, the fact that if I happen to be the president or a royalty, that gives them a portion of that royalty because they happen to be related to me. So Allah azza wa jal is saying, Indeed Allah and His angels, so there's a little bit of royalty that they're getting as well. And that is that a

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

lot of angels they happen to be in

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

la llamada Akita who you will soluna Allah NaVi, they are the ones who sent salaat upon the prophets are similar and when Allah is original brings this verb, he brings the verb in

00:10:14--> 00:10:43

a present tense present and future tense world audio. And what that means is continuity, okay? That means it's not just one time they're continuously and and repetitively making salaat upon their profits or setting them and what does that mean? So a lot upon the profits of the LMS they have differences of opinions about what a salaat upon the prophets of Salaam actually means okay? What does it mean to send salutations upon the prophets of Salaam especially when it comes to

00:10:44--> 00:10:54

Allah azza wa jal okay. So some of the scholars they say that this means and this is the opinion of some of the scholars they say this means to,

00:10:56--> 00:10:59

to praise the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, okay.

00:11:00--> 00:11:44

A Salam upon the prophets of Salaam it means to praise the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam. So when Allah azza wa jal is saying in the law when Allah it ghetto saloon, Allah nadie Indeed, Allah as the origin and his angels happen to be sending a lot upon the prophets are similar in terms of a lot, one of their opinions is that it means to praise the prophets are similar, right? So Allah is the agenda. In the higher committee, he happens to be praising the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. And another opinion of some of the scholars is that it happens to refer to the mercy of Allah, okay? So Allah azza wa jal is sending the mercy of his upon the prophets of Allah and he will send them along

00:11:44--> 00:11:46

on Sunday or send them over to America, let me know.

00:11:47--> 00:11:58

And also, and a third view is that a large project is forgiving the messenger alayhi salatu salam. Now some scholars such as it Mohajer

00:11:59--> 00:12:45

and helped me they said we can try to combine all three of these opinions. And we can say that generally it means a lot upon the profits and settlement means that a lot of the agenda is praising the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, Allah is additionally sending his got his blessings and his mercy upon the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and additionally a lot as the agenda is also reading him have the view of any mistakes, even though those mistakes are not sincere when it comes to the profits and send them because he was infallible, and even salatu salam. So considering that it becomes a llama it becomes Baraka, it becomes blessings, it becomes mercy, it becomes praise and all of these

00:12:45--> 00:13:06

meanings upon the Prophet alayhi salatu was set down from Allah azza wa jal. So if Allah is praising the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then Isn't it time that we start thinking that we also need to be praising the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, not once, not twice, you solunar they're continuously praising the Prophet alayhi salatu salam,

00:13:07--> 00:13:34

right. And then on top of that, the angels remember you and I happen to be addressed by the dog by the address of Allah as though agenda to the prophets are similar because we are more Ken Levine, we are from the human time and humankind happened to be addressed by the aggressive God. As for the angels, Allah subhanho wa Taala told us in the Quran, nyah Suna, Mohammed amerihome.

00:13:35--> 00:14:10

Maroon, they don't deny a loss of Hana with the LS commandments, and they obey everything that a law tells them. Meaning that when a law tells them to do something, they do it when a law tells them not to do something, they don't do it. We are the ones who have been given the free choice. And we've been told to accept this address from the profits and send them IE we have been addressed by the message that the profits are setting them was granted. So the question here is, if the melodica were not addressed by the message of the profit, they are praising the profits or send them How about you and I,

00:14:11--> 00:14:37

who happened to be addressed by the message of Rasulullah Sasa, who happened to be the recipients of the mercy that the profits in the long run he was settled and had been sent us, to mankind, right in the La Jolla Aikido so Allah tells you Allah is praising him. And you people also start praising his angels are praising Him who happened to be royalty themselves because there are His angels, and they're not addressed by the address of

00:14:38--> 00:14:56

the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But even then, they happen to be praising the prophets assylum you people who've been granted this mercy embodied within this world. The prophet SAW said that you should have enough of a reason now to praise the prophets of cinema you were Latina,

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

or who you believe sunny.

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

La he recently moved us Lima along suddenly, suddenly moto America Latina, right?

00:15:07--> 00:15:14

Oh, who you believe what does that mean? No. Oh, who you believe this means that from the,

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

from the aspects of belief is whatever happens to be coming next, right? Whenever Allah says, yeah you and the vena cava will end up on you gotta start thinking along these lines that whatever Allah is going to say next, this happens to be something related to belief, okay?

00:15:33--> 00:15:50

So if I'm not tells you Yeah, you wouldn't know. Now you're going to look at the next part of the verse and apply it when you apply it. That means you've become more of a believer, okay? So it's from the perfection of a person's faith, to do what descends a lot upon the prophets

00:15:52--> 00:16:03

to send salutations upon the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, to mention the prophets of Salaam and asked a lot to exalt the mention of the prophets are similar, right?

00:16:04--> 00:16:09

And to ask Allah subhana wa Taala to raise the status of the prophets of Sikhism. Yeah you have lived in

00:16:11--> 00:16:18

LA he was in Lima, Lima and also send Salaam upon the Prophet alayhi salatu salam

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

you see Allah azzawajal

00:16:22--> 00:17:02

didn't mention that Allah subhanho wa Taala is sending Salaam upon the prophets are similar right? Allah only mentioned that ally sending Salaam upon the Prophet is in the melodica are sending Salam upon the prophets are similar but for us Allah subhanho wa Taala told us so new la he was sending me muitas Lima right. So there's a possibility that a person may think if Allah is not sending Salam Why should I be doing it a lot emphasizes it more by bringing the muster at the end or what we call my own Moodle up and he says suddenly move to sliema Be sure to send Salam as well. And don't don't just stop at a salata an interview Salalah

00:17:03--> 00:17:13

right. So when we send a lot upon the prophets, I send them then we do it in this particular way. You see, my dear brothers and sisters, the scholars of Islam, mentioned that

00:17:14--> 00:17:42

Salam upon the prophets are seldom considering this verse happens to be an obligation, okay? It happens to be an obligation. Why? Because the primary rule is whenever Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us to do something in an imperative tone, meaning it tells us with a verb which happens to be a commanding tone in it and imperative verb they call it right, then that means that we have to do it.

00:17:43--> 00:18:06

And that's why the scholars of Islam, by the consensus of the scholars mentioned, as a bare minimum, it is an oblique obligation upon a Muslim to send Salam upon the Prophet at least once within his life. Okay. And other scholars, they went even further and they said, that is generally an obligation without any limitations, but at least one is sufficient, right?

00:18:07--> 00:18:27

And others, they have other opinions, but at least they say, you have to send a lot upon the profits or send them once in your life. Now, of course, the more the merrier. And this is a lot that we send upon the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. What does it actually mean? Because we said, from Allah, it means three things, right? And from the angels, what does it mean?

00:18:28--> 00:18:38

From the angels they said, it means a DA, it means supplication. It means that they make dua to Allah,

00:18:40--> 00:19:17

Allah, to give him all three of those meanings that he would give when he sends the salaat directly from himself upon the Prophet, Aileen salatu wa sallam, which was what urashima and Mo Farah and a finale, his praise and mercy from Allah upon him and also forgiveness. So when the angels are asking Allah, Allah Subhana, wa Taala, to send a lot upon the prophets and send them What that means is they're making dua to Allah to give him more of all three of those meanings and all other meanings of perfection, right, and praise and raising his his ranks.

00:19:18--> 00:19:43

And similarity when they human beings also sense a lot upon the profits and look, they're doing the same thing. They're making dua to Allah azza wa jal to grant him more of, of praise to random more of rankings to random more of perfection to get the when you see the profits of synonym is already no longer here. How does he get more of perfection now? Well through the perfection of his nation, right?

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

Through the perfection of his message, through the continuity of his legacy, through more perfect people being born within this owner, and through all of these great meanings, so we continue to ask Allah subhana wa tada to

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

Perfect the legacy of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, as well.

00:20:05--> 00:20:30

So we say then, that if a person recognizes that it is an obligation upon every single Muslim to sense a lot upon the prophets and send them at least once and according to some more than that as well, according to some at least in every single gathering, right? Then it would be from our faith and our faithfulness to Allah,

00:20:31--> 00:20:40

Allah and to the to the message of Allah azza wa jal to continuously send salaat upon the prophets. Now, if this is not enough for a person, that

00:20:43--> 00:21:06

Allah subhana wa tada has encouraged us in this way to sense a lot upon him. If this is not enough for a person, we'll find that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had mentioned enough reasons for us to send this a lot upon the profit center. But before I get into that, I just want to mention an important issue, okay. And that is that sometimes we see

00:21:07--> 00:21:23

that people ask when we send a lot upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, we say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, right? But sometimes when he sends salaat upon other messengers, we just say alayhis salam, isn't that so?

00:21:26--> 00:21:29

So when they wonder, right? What is the difference there?

00:21:30--> 00:22:12

Well, the first difference is a lot of soldiers directly directed us in the Quran to send salatu salam upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this is a divine directive, specifically related to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you saw Luna Allah and nebby upon the Prophet Mohammed saucily right. And you'll find in most places in the Quran, with the exception, with an exception when most places in the Quran Allah azza wa jal refers to the prophets I send them either as a law soon, or in first to him as a prophet. Right. And he doesn't say, Matheran, Mohammed, even though that's there as well. But right after that, Allah says Mohammed Rasulullah,

00:22:12--> 00:22:19

right. Mohammed is a messenger of Allah subhanaw taala. Why does that happen? The reason why that happens is

00:22:20--> 00:22:42

because Allah zildjian wants you to realize, and wants us to realize and warrants those who read the Quran to realize that yes, there are many prophets, but even within Prophethood, the most perfect embodiment of that legacy happens to be Muhammad Sallallahu it was, right, because he is an OB, he is the Prophet.

00:22:44--> 00:22:49

And that's why it says sallu alayhi wa sallam Moses Lima, right.

00:22:51--> 00:22:55

You saw Luna lnav, they sent a lot upon the Prophet.

00:22:58--> 00:23:34

That doesn't mean there aren't other prophets as well. But because the prophets of the law where it was setting them is the most perfect embodiment of prophethood as well. That doesn't mean that other prophets happened to be imperfect and all that but this means that the Prophet happens to be the most perfect of them all. At the end of the day, the prophets are setting them is the Imam or mousseline. Right? He is the amount of all of the messengers that were sent when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was taken in the night journey over the Surat when we know that among the occurrences within that journey was that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam he led the

00:23:34--> 00:23:59

Gambia and Mussolini in prayer, right? So he is the amount when we're selling and that means he's the most of them from amongst them. He's the foremost from them. So there is a distinction there. And that's why Allah Subhana Allah tells us to send Salaam upon him specifically in this way. This also does not mean that we can't say Salaam upon some of the other messengers as well, but it just became canonized in this way. Okay.

00:24:00--> 00:24:20

It just became habitual, with in this way that people would say Are they he said I'm for the messengers. And they would say Allahu salatu salam for the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but what we shouldn't do is we shouldn't send Salaam upon other people, okay?

00:24:21--> 00:25:00

This word has become in a way where it's now become particular for a sort of loss a loss of love. Now, there is some difference of opinions and all this, but generally the scholars they say that it is best not to use this word for other people other than the profits, okay? And this actually happened at the time of disease where a group of the SOS and there There used to be a culture in the past of applesauce. What that means is, storytellers Okay, so in the past, there happened to be scholars who had the theme, right? scholars were, scholars were kalamoon

00:25:00--> 00:25:23

scholars who have, you know, distinctions in different sciences. And simultaneously there are people who are storytellers. And this culture became really an important part of the culture of Arabia, right, within a certain time. And to a point that some of the scholars even wrote complete books related to an SOS like Abraham, Josie, his book alfuzosin was occurring, right.

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

So there is this culture of people coming together to tell stories, right.

00:25:30--> 00:25:43

But this was discouraged by a lot of scholars, because sometimes people would end up lying in the stories to make people feel good, or give them some sort of positive message, but they would make up the story, right?

00:25:44--> 00:26:26

And that's why Imam Abu hanifa used to say, don't be a person who's a storyteller, right? Don't be a person who happens to be a storyteller. Because in the past Allah Buddha, who is that a person who is a storyteller, he has to end up lying at times, okay? Many times the storyteller has to add the fine details within the stories, and then they end up lying in the process. But if you are genuine, meaning you don't end up adding and deleting and if you narrate, as the narrative really is, right? Then in shallow data, there is no point. There's no problem within that. In fact, Allah azzawajal gave us a complete story in the Quran. And that's the story of usage and a law called the accent

00:26:26--> 00:26:33

apostles, the best of narratives. So Allah azza wa jal also give us a story on as many, many stories as well, right?

00:26:34--> 00:26:45

The point is that some of these are sauce, some of these storytellers at the time of disease, they started to sense a lot upon the Buddha

00:26:46--> 00:26:55

at the time of disease, so they started to send a lot upon some of the caliphs and some of the O'Meara as well.

00:26:56--> 00:27:00

Just like they would send a lot upon the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu. It was similar, right?

00:27:02--> 00:27:26

So Omar, z, zz wrote a letter and he says, a group of people from among the storytellers, they have innovated in such a way where they are now sending salaat upon the halifa. And they are also sending salaat upon the O'Meara, just like they would send a lot upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam right?

00:27:27--> 00:27:53

So he says in his writing this to some of his people that he had delegated, right, some of his governors, and he says, for either jakka Kitab, you have that when this book of mine comes to you, then tell them that there is a lot upon the prophets should be particular to the prophets themselves. And for the rest of the Muslims, they can make the law, okay, for the rest of the Muslims, they can make the law. So based on this, we say that

00:27:54--> 00:28:13

it is encouraged or it is best, I'm not saying it is impermissible, it is best for us to make sure that this word we use for the Prophet Muhammad and if we really ended up using it broadly then for the other messengers as well in the prophets, but not for the general people, for them we make

00:28:15--> 00:28:18

right? For the Muslims in general, we make bow

00:28:19--> 00:28:41

and we don't use the word a lot. Now, it is true that in some cases, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he actually used the terms a lot for some of the regular Muslims as well. Right. So the prophet SAW Selim, for instance, he said, along masala, Allah Allah, Allah sent Salam upon the family of Abu opha and the prophets of Salaam. He said that

00:28:42--> 00:29:27

along myrddraal solotica, automatica, Allah Allah, Allah sendra Salawat. And also, you're a hermit upon the family of Saudi. Okay, who was among the leaders of Ellen saw. So, he did this as well, but the scholars they said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chose this particularly for specific individuals. It doesn't mean we generalize, okay. Other than the prophets, we don't use this word. And if we wish to, there are some scholars have said otherwise. But I discourage it nonetheless use it for the Prophet alayhi salatu salam because generally Allah subhana wa Taala commanded us to do that and also there is another reason there's confusions that can occur, okay.

00:29:28--> 00:29:37

Believe it or not, some Muslims who haven't studied their beliefs correctly, they may not know the names of all the prophets.

00:29:39--> 00:29:48

Okay, so if they hear you saying some of them are while he was sending them after another man, immediately, the first thing that will come to their mind is what maybe this person happens to be

00:29:50--> 00:30:00

a prophet. So since this term has become particular to Prophet Mohammed and generally used occasionally for other prophets as well, then we

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

Say that we don't use it except for the profits. Okay?

00:30:07--> 00:30:17

Now, US sending salaat upon the Profit System, in addition to everything we've learned so far, why should we do it? What Why is it so

00:30:18--> 00:30:44

important for us to send us a lot of on the prophecy? Well because it happens to be a commandment from Allah. But sometimes we say okay, it's a commandment from Allah, we'll do it once. Or if we happen to follow the opinion that a salaat is also an obligatory within Salah as well, after Tisha hood, right, as it happens to be the Shafi method. Then, in salaat, every single day we do it other than that, why do I have to do it?

00:30:46--> 00:31:27

Right? Well, we say there's a lot of benefit in it for you as well. Okay. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us so many ahaadeeth, many of which happened to be authentic as well. All right, and some of them happened to be weak, but we know within the within the chapter or within the angle of the favela, in Amman, the virtuous deeds we can mention a hadith which happened to be with as well. But tonight, I will only mention the authentic hadith, because even within the authentic hadith of rasulillah, there are so many a hadith that we can list them on and on, related to the salaat upon the Prophet salallahu it, okay. So for instance, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:31:27--> 00:32:20

sallam, he told us in a Hadith, that there is not a sleeve of mine, right or not a sleeve of Allah azza wa jal, who happens to be a believer who remembers me? For you suddenly earlier in LA? Khattab Allahu Allahu Ashura has an atom. There's not a single slave of Allah azza wa jal, who happens to be a believer and he mentions salutations upon me, he sends a lot upon me, except that Allah subhana wa Taala will do the following for him, Allah will write for him 10 has or not, Allah will wipe away for him 10 Cr 1010 deeds that is he had committed the 10 evils that he had committed 10 sins that he had committed. And in addition to that, Allah will raise 10 ranks for him in general. Okay. So three

00:32:20--> 00:32:46

things simply by sending a single salaat upon the prophets are similar, what will the what will allow us to kind of without ado, the first thing is Allah will give you 10 hessonite. Allah will give you 10 good deeds. The second thing is Allah Subhana Allah Allah will wipe away 10 evils of yours. And in addition to that, Allah Subhana Allah will raise 10 statuses of you for you on the day of judgment in Sharla Okay.

00:32:47--> 00:33:19

All of this simply by sending salaat upon the profitsystem once and we see this in the Hadith of the prophets are seldom as well, where the Prophet has seldom said monks, Allah Allah Salatin wahida whoever sends one Salam upon me sallallahu alayhi, Bihar Sha, Allah subhanho wa Taala will send 10 salata Salawat upon him, okay. So, remember, what this salaat from alamy we said it means praise, it means mercy, it means forgiveness, right. So look at what the profits is seldom said in the other heads.

00:33:21--> 00:33:58

When you send one salaat upon the Prophet, Allah sends 10 salaat upon that person, a loss prophet explained it in the other Hadith in the other wording where he said, Allah will write 10% not for him, that's from the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah that Allah will wipe away 10 so he asked for him 10 evil deeds that from the moment from Allah subhanaw taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala will raise 10 statuses for him. And that is from the praise of Eliza, which and for the individual that Allah raises the status of the individual. So the meanings that we gave earlier on facade, all of them are mentioned in this Hadeeth in this way, right?

00:34:02--> 00:34:48

In addition to that, the prophets gave us even more clarity in this regard. All right, with also a hadith that happens to be good in terms of exchange. The prophet SAW Selim said mon Sol aleja Sharon, whoever sends 10 solo out upon me, okay, so the first Hadeeth was one salaat This one is saying 10 solo out whoever sends 10 solo out upon me sallallahu alaihe me at 10 Allah sends 100 solo watermarked Okay, woman Sala Allah Allah yummy Salalah alayhi elfen and whoever sends 100 solo out upon me, Allah azza wa jal does it 1000 times for him, woman's Addis Ababa 10 was open container OSHA and OSHA neoma tiama. Right.

00:34:49--> 00:34:51

And whoever becomes very, very,

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

you know, he starts to gain show he longs for me, then I ended up becoming a chef

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

For him on the Day of Judgment, I ended up interceding for him on the Day of Judgment I and and I ended up becoming a witness for him also on the Day of Judgment, right? So let's say Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik, ala nabina Muhammad. You see, every time we say Mohammed that says Allah Allahu Allah who submitted at least once within the gathering, as we said, it is necessary. So when you hear the name of, and by the way, some scholars they said, No, every time you hear the name, you have to say something, a lot of what he was saying. This is also an opinion of some scholars, every time you hear or say the name Muhammad, you say sallallahu wasallam. Right. And that's difficult.

00:35:40--> 00:36:10

It's difficult. And that's why in sha Allah to Allah, at least we should do it once within our gatherings and as much as we can we do it within that capacity because the Prophet sallallaahu it was said to me said, and to heal, the miserly individual happens to be the one I who I am mentioned within his presence, philomela salia la, and then he doesn't end up sending salaat upon me, this individual is the one who's truly miserly.

00:36:11--> 00:36:24

This is the person who happens to be miserly as the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam mentioned to us. So that's an salata upon the Prophet Helen santosa along with Ali are suddenly Massoud robotic Allah Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:36:25--> 00:37:04

You see, there are many, many reasons for us to send the Salawat upon the profits on the lesson learned. Another thing too, by the way, don't is and this is a side point, there are actually many different ways to sense a lot upon the profits or celebrate one of those Salawat of course, is the one that you read in your solo every single day, which is known as a Salatin. ebrahimian right, which some people may just know as the word Salawat. And other people may know it, as little Chitty if and other people may have other names for it, right? But anyways, this particular form, or this formula of salata, upon the prophets, Allah Selim, was actually mentioned and prescribed, but also

00:37:04--> 00:37:09

de la sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself right. Now I'm going to ask you a question.

00:37:10--> 00:37:12

I want you to just think about this for a second.

00:37:17--> 00:37:23

We know that the Prophet told us in a hadith that and hasn't had to be actually

00:37:24--> 00:37:31

write a good deed, it ends up equating to 10 of its likes, okay.

00:37:32--> 00:37:41

That every single time you do a good deed, Allah azza wa jal through His grace ends up giving you 10 times the reward, right?

00:37:42--> 00:37:45

It has to be a sugar we actually I'm Talia.

00:37:46--> 00:38:33

Now if every Hashanah every good deed, you end up getting 10 rewards for then what's the difference between this deed of salata upon the profits SLM, and any other good deed? Because we said in the Hadith, the prophet said, once Allah, Allah Salatu, WA sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whoever sends once a lot upon me, Allah ends up sending 10 solar watts upon me in return upon him in return, right? So what's the difference? If one equals 10? in all circumstances, anything good you do a lot of rewards you in that way, then what's the difference between this and that? Well, the difference is that salaat itself is more magnificent than magnificent than just a single deed, because we said

00:38:33--> 00:39:16

salaat is explained in a plethora of different ways, right? So you have the mercy of Allah, you have the forgiveness from Allah as we found in the other Hadith, and you have, in addition to that, the raising of the ranks as well so it's not just a deed that you're getting, rather you're getting the complete package in reality, this particular act of worship is more rewarding than many many other acts of worship. And the reason why we know that also, is because of this hadith in admits Hadith is authentic, by the way, okay, this, this may shock some of you, but this hadith is an authentic hadith, authenticated by Timothy himself. Right, who was the person who collected this ad, Ethan is

00:39:16--> 00:39:17

generativity.

00:39:18--> 00:39:54

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the two thirds of the night would finish had finished once? He stood and he said, Yeah, you Hannah's Oh people who is going to law remember Allah. remember Allah jata Raja, that's Barrow Harada very close happens to be the first blow in the trumpet by which the day of judgment will come right. And the second blow will come very soon after that as well. JOHN l know to be my fee. The Death is here along with everything that happens to be within death as well.

00:39:55--> 00:40:00

JOHN l know to be my fee. That is almost here with every

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

thing that happens to be within depth as well will vary. He says visa Sahabi Okay, from the Polo. Mr. Sahaba he says you're a pseudo law old messenger of Allah. In the UK Pharaoh salata, Alec, I send the Lord have salata upon you are profits on the life and limb for K major Anglican Ancelotti, how much of my prayer Should I make for you and specify for you Oh, messenger of Allah, the prophet has seldom said as much as you so please, okay. He's saying I make a lot of time or profit of a lot. How much of this dollar Should I make it such that it happens to be a salon upon you, or prophet of Allah?

00:40:44--> 00:40:54

So he said, do as much as you can. So they said, should I make a fourth of it for you will profit of a lot the prophet SAW, Selim said, Masha, they were indeed

00:40:56--> 00:41:11

as much as you please. But if you want to do more than a fourth, then it's going to be better for you. Okay, you want to do more than a fourth of your personal Doral? Instead of making it for yourself? You make it for the profits? I said, No, it's okay. It's better, right?

00:41:13--> 00:41:18

So he said fitness, maybe I should make half of my draw for you. Right?

00:41:19--> 00:41:20

So he says mashido is it?

00:41:22--> 00:41:27

He said, as much as you please. But if you want to go even further than it will be better for you.

00:41:28--> 00:41:30

So then he says, fit through too thin Should I make

00:41:31--> 00:41:36

two thirds for you, missile Allahu alayhi wa sallam all profits are similar.

00:41:38--> 00:41:40

He said, my sheets were indeed different.

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

He said, as you please. But if you want to keep going further than it will be even better for you. Right?

00:41:49--> 00:42:13

To Allah let let us alati coulda he said, should I make all of my draft for you or prophet of Allah because remember, the literary the literary meaning, or the literal meaning for the word salaat is? So he's talking about da over here. So he said hasta la tequilla Should I make my draw for you, oh prophet of Allah altogether, the prophets of Salaam said He then took

00:42:14--> 00:42:20

if you do that, then all of the worries that you have a law will take care of them for you.

00:42:22--> 00:42:29

When you follow them book, and all of the sins that you have, they will also be forgiven for you as well.

00:42:31--> 00:42:31

To

00:42:33--> 00:43:09

wait, when you follow them, all of your sins will be forgiven. And the reason why I say all is because again, this is a lava and the lava denotes generality, okay, so all of the sins will be forgiven. And also, all of your worries will go away as well. So if you want to live a worryfree life, and people are always looking for a worryfree life these days, right. And since a lot upon the profit center, you see some of the most peaceful people that you'll meet in your life are the ones who sense a lot upon the Profit System, you'll see it if the person is a regular individual intending solo act upon the profits.

00:43:10--> 00:43:51

And he has a regular, you know, regimen that he's decided for himself a with a regular regimen that he's decided for himself in terms of sending solo out upon the profits assylum these people happen to be the most illuminated people. And you can see that in your interaction and you see that they're very free in their lives. Okay, and the profits is seldom said to family, your worries will go away. Okay. And this is a authentic hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the reason for this is because, look, the Prophet told us in a hadith bootsy that men shahana who victory, right, whoever gets occupied with mine mentioned allies or jealousy, wherever he gets occupied with my

00:43:51--> 00:43:55

mansion, I miss ality from asking me

00:43:56--> 00:44:42

the pay to end another tradition or a fee of one of the salary. I give to him the best of what I give people who asked me questions, right? So people ask questions about what they want from a lot as origin. They sit there making grace like you and I, a law said Whoever gets occupied with my mentioned, okay, then I end up giving them with my thicker guys, I end up giving them the best of what I give those people who are asking questions, right? This doesn't mean you don't ask questions, you can ask a lot of questions as well. But the point is that even when you do Vicar of Allah azza wa jal, even at that time, you end up getting what, even at that time, you end up getting what you

00:44:42--> 00:44:52

want from Eliza, which is because that in and of itself, is so beloved to a lot and likewise is the example of sending Salam upon the Prophet Li Salatu was Salam.

00:44:54--> 00:44:57

You see, there is a hadith that

00:44:59--> 00:45:00

that are mentioned already.

00:45:00--> 00:45:17

Here this Hanif is authenticated according to some of the others. They say it's weak but the origin of this hadith is when both Wahhabi and Muslim. And I'll tell you the reason why I made that caveat caveat in just a second. Okay? So the Hadees basically is known as the Hadith to say you're the Hadees.

00:45:18--> 00:45:20

I say Yo, what's the howdy to say yada?

00:45:22--> 00:45:31

yada is basically the Hadith of the angels of Allah azza wa jal who are constantly going around to different places, okay.

00:45:33--> 00:45:35

Because sobre su means to,

00:45:37--> 00:45:41

to journey and to travel, okay. So,

00:45:42--> 00:46:28

these are angels Allah has designated their specific they are as the Hadeeth goes, they are the Malaika yaku funa. Farooqi, meltemi. Suna Allah Vicki, there are angels of allies who go in different directions around the world and they look for people of wicked people of the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala for either what do you do parliament and this is in Buhari I'm quoting directly from Buhari for either what do you do Omen is una la denardo. Whenever they see a people they're remembering Allah azza wa jal they start seeing Hello Marina Hagerty Come, come each other they tell the other angels get together, this is what you are looking for. So these angels as a

00:46:28--> 00:46:49

guardian or so yeah, in or apart in these angels that are going from place to place looking for the people of the good war, remembering a lot as origin. They say to each other here, this is the group of people who are remembering Allah subhana wa Tada. Right, then what do they do? They take their wings, and they cover the people with their wings,

00:46:51--> 00:47:12

all the way to the first heavens, LS semi dounia all the way to the first evidence, right? So Allah subhanaw taala asks them and he already knows what's going on. He doesn't need to ask his angels but ally is just asking. Right? For the sake of he says that. What did you see them doing? Right?

00:47:14--> 00:47:45

So they say they were you said behenic. They were doing the spear view. They were saying Subhana Allah, well, you could build on it. And they were doing that could be review, they were saying Allahu Akbar while you're doing that, and they were also praising you as well, when you met Jay donut and they were glorifying you as well. Okay, so they were doing all of these things. They were glorifying you. They were mentioning you. They were praising you they were doing all of these things. By the way. This Hadith is a very important Hadith, isn't it? Why? Because this Hadeeth based on this.

00:47:46--> 00:48:04

It Mohajer us Kalani and the scholars of Islam, they said this heavy is actually the basis of analysis decay. Because some people they have a problem with modalities decay, right? They say majority should decay. There is no such thing. The sell off didn't do this. Never had Ethan Bahati here.

00:48:06--> 00:48:07

There's a hadith in Bukhari

00:48:08--> 00:48:12

authentic, as clear as the sun.

00:48:13--> 00:48:20

There is no one to discredit this hadith in Bukhari, who's gonna try? And it's in Muslim as well.

00:48:21--> 00:48:28

And this is how the scholars of Islam have explained it over the generations as much as it should, because

00:48:30--> 00:48:34

there's no other way to explain it. These are people looking for the people of the

00:48:35--> 00:49:14

right. And what are they doing, they're in search for the people of the good. And they go and they sit down by a people. And by the way, this is the verb is plural here, they are all doing this V healthview. What are they doing, all of them are doing the speaker view, all of them are doing to clear of you, all of them are praising you, all of them are glorifying you. So this is the sooner Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And not only that, this is something that Allah azzawajal has designated specific angels in this world to search for it. Right? And that's why that's why

00:49:16--> 00:49:42

half a liberal hijaab immune more meaningful Hadith, he says, In this hadith happens to be the proof for the virtue of the modalities of victory with dakini for the gatherings of Vicar, and also those who remember a lot of HTML, Allah Malik, and also this shows the virtue of gathering together to remember a lot to do Vicar of Allah, who Allah, okay. And

00:49:43--> 00:49:59

this also shows that whoever is sitting with them because the rest of the Hadith has this portion of whoever's sitting with them and he's not even doing the decay. He's simply sitting there, even him will be granted this grace and then the later shamrock adiz they can move out of

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

vertically integrated, and others, they all copied right out of fits for the body of

00:50:06--> 00:50:07

an

00:50:08--> 00:50:40

agile, right? So this is very important, right? I remember reading this as a teenager. Okay. When I first read this comment by Mohajer, I think I was 19 years of age at that time. And it was, you know, to me it was a revelation, because I know that some people, they spread this idea that these modalities did happen to the VEDA, they happen to be an innovation. So if you partake in them, or if you gather there, then you happen to be from the people of Buddha, right.

00:50:41--> 00:50:43

And this is 100 speaking in physical body.

00:50:44--> 00:51:20

And this is, of course, before that this is our sort of loss, a loss of love telling us clearly in the Hadith, this particular ruling, and by the way, this is nothing. There's nothing controversial about this even even taymiyah writing a whole lot. Even he says that this is acceptable, not only acceptable encouraged, he just has one slight caveat. He says that you cannot have a specific time that you designate as in Thursday nights and Friday nights or whatever else, but most of the scholars, they disagree with him on this as well. Okay, most of the scholars that said this is just organizational matters. If I have a hand up, I'm going to have it on Friday night, and there will

00:51:20--> 00:51:35

always be on Friday night. If I have a registered Speaker I can have it on a specific day, no problem, right. So this is just a side point. But the point is that the another variation of this tradition also mentions a salata Allen Levy,

00:51:36--> 00:52:14

it also mentions sending Salawat to ponder profits or send them so they find these angels they find a group of people where you will soluna Allah and a beak and they say to a lot we were sending salaat upon your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah azza wa jal says, rush shoo whom Allah Almighty cover them up with my mercy, okay? cover them up with my mercy. So if a person wants to be then of the recipients of the mercy, mercy of Allah azza wa jal, then one of the waste again that the recipe of that Mercy of Allah azza wa jal is to do what to send Salam upon the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, right.

00:52:15--> 00:52:24

Another Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim is it shows us that if a person doesn't have money, they don't have money you don't have wealth

00:52:26--> 00:52:27

so

00:52:29--> 00:52:30

what do you do

00:52:31--> 00:52:33

you send a lot upon the profits

00:52:34--> 00:52:55

and that will be like your is a cut the profits SLM told us that whichever Muslim man or woman or like they don't have anything to give, sada then let them say Allahumma salli ala Muhammad in abdic basilico Sania lol many in our movie not even Muslim in our Muslim man for in the house aka

00:52:57--> 00:53:01

whichever Muslim person right?

00:53:02--> 00:53:42

He doesn't have money to give soda then let him say this particular slot that the Prophet is taught in this Hadith, then that slot will act like a jackass for him that's a lot will act like a form of charity on his behalf. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the trophy to practice to convey and I asked Allah subhanaw taala to give us the ability to constantly and regularly engage our hearts by mentioning a lot of the origin and also by mentioning Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. allama Sunday was sending Moses Rebecca and Amina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam wa ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali marine
