Am I bad
when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam decided on a place to build the masjid, they build it in a lot that had a lot of trees. So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alyssum order the trees to be cut.
in front of the mustard,
the tree that was cut, it wasn't cut off cut all the way.
They left the tree that was towards the front where the profits on the loss and prayed or towards the direction that
they left the stump standing.
So the tree stump that was in the front of the message it
was left standing it was used by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam for his hood bus. And he also sometimes would stand on the tree trunk in order to pray so that the others could see because if he was in a higher area, then they would be able to see how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam prayed because he had said Son Luca moto eight Munoz suddenly prayers that you see me as you see me pray, so they it would be easier for them to see how the Prophet sallallahu taala is and prayed, where he put his hands, how he made it look cool and so forth. And when he would makes it God would just go down, step down from the tree trunk and he would pray normal a we would make the
regular salute that we know. And so this chart was used, as I mentioned, as the member, there was no member at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Allah so there's no pulpit when he stood to get the hood bus. He stood on this tree trunk. Finally, a companion had noticed an unsavoury. He had noticed
at the Messenger of Allah Sonoma standing a tree trunk and this is a carpenter. And so his wife
actually she was the one that noticed it. And she she gave.
She gave advice to her husband. And she said, Why don't you build? Why don't we build for her the best
To develop some listener, pulpit and member, where he can stand up on instead of standing on this tree trunk. And so the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam was asked about and he agreed to have it built for him. And when it came out, when the when the Sahaba, the unsought, he was finished building the member, he brought the member out,
upon bringing the member to the masjid, the tree trunk, started to cry,
this tree trunk, started to cry, and cry, and cry. And because
he wanted the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to make the hood on him, on the one day when the Messenger of Allah to stand on him, he wanted him he wanted to be used for this great purpose of educating the Muslims. And so this treatment
made different noises. According some companions, they said it was like as if, as if it was a treatment, it was as if it was an A attend a pregnant camera that was about to deliver.
Some of them said there was like a baby or a morning sound. But either case, this Heidi has come to us, by way of the water, what is the water mean? The water means it has been so it has been reported
to us, through so many means, through so many chains and ways that it is impossible, that this is a lie.
It is logically impossible for it to be a lie. It's like me telling you right now, you guys have been through all these times there was nobody by the name of Imam, Shafi,
Elliman, shafa, even if there was he wasn't pious, or even Abu hanifa and so forth.
What would you say to me immediately, you say No way, there is no way that that can be false whatsoever. Because it has come to us through so many means. Muslims in Asia, any Muslim, who prays five times a day on the face of this earth knows that.
And it has gone through through so many changes that so many people have written about in their books and so forth. The logically it's impossible for it to be a lie.
Like me also telling you that there's no such thing as the war in Iraq right now.
There's no such thing as soldiers over there's nothing there you'll be you'll be lived through by the media and the media lies a lot. But you know,
we've gone we've witnessed it. So this is called to water, information that has come to us through so many means, by so many ways through so many people that are from different parts and areas of the world, the different types of people, that it is impossible, that it could ever be alive, that it's logically impossible, it's impossible to even deny it. Because just like the Quran itself has come to us by way of the water.
By way to water meaning it comes to has come through us through millions and millions of people to everybody in Asia or the recycling the same thing. Everyone in Africa, everyone in America and Europe and so forth. It's this Qur'an that we're reading, and all of it's the same. And so this is what a lot of this information, the crying of the morning are crying of this treatment came to us by way of the water. And so this treatment started to cry in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to console it.
And so he went down
to the treatment, and he had the treatment.
And he whispered something to the treatment, that the companions can hear the whispering but didn't know what he was actually saying.
And then afterwards, the prophets of Allah as I've said, immediately upon whisper after, after he whispered to the tree, Trent,
the tree trunks start stopped crying.
It stopped crying, it was silent.
And so the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah was asked about what he said to the treatment that made him Stop crying, crying. And so the Messenger of Allah love said,
I do you know, the reason why he stopped crying
was because I asked them, I said, Would you like to be a tree trunk agenda with me?
Would you like to be in gender with me? And the tree trunk stopped crying. He said if I didn't console it,
he would have cried until the day judgment.
A tree trunk, inanimate object cries because he wants to be with a profit center.
How about us?
Human with blood and heart. We have our bodies. We're alive in terms of you know, you can see we move around. Isn't it more appropriate that we yearn to be with the prophets of Allah has a more than these two tracks and these inanimate objects.
This is a this is an inanimate object. And that's why it has an anniversary when he mentioned this hadith. He said Yama, Sharon, Muslim in all Muslims
Akasha to to handle a lot of pseudo Allah Salallahu alaihe salam aleikum shoppen la partie he, he said a piece of wood
desires and yearns to be with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fine to Mahatma and touched upon Allah. He says you have you it's more appropriate more right? That you should yearn and want to be with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And so the treatment loved the prophets a lot incentive. And the rocks they used to give some lambs to the prophets of the lava stone. in Mecca, the Prophet sallallahu said There used to be a rock that I know to this day, I know which rock
this rock used to give some lamps to me, every time I would pass by. And so loving the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
is something that's a brilliant, obligatory, it's mandatory upon every Muslim. And if you ask any Muslim,
everybody claims that they love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But what does loving the prophets on a lot ism entail?
What does it entail? What does it mean? What should we be doing? If we know that loving the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is obligatory? Most people think that you know to love the prophets of Allah Islam is obligatory, and we know that's a part of human. But you know,
many people don't realize that you have to love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than even yourself
more than yourself. And that's why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that Hadith,
which is authentic in the in the other side collections.
You mean, none of you truly believes. Hector? akuna habla la he, meanwhile, he will validate he were nasty. ajmeri he said, none of you truly believes until I am more beloved to him. Then his children, or his his parents, his father and his son and his children, and so forth and all of the people.
the Prophet Solomon when he said this
trauma, he said Yasser Allah. He said in nikka Hubbell la melancholia had an inlet of say, he said, O Messenger of Allah, you have more beloved to me than everyone, except for myself.
Said except for myself. So the prophets of the lioness and said la Yama, Hatton have said, he said no oma, even yourself. And so the prophet SAW so Omar,
ellana jasola, la, la, habra, la FC, he said, Now, you are more beloved to me, than even myself.
And then the Prophet Solomon, Solomon said, Alana Omar, he said, Yes, right now, most people when they read this, you might think, Oh, my God, Baba, he should love the professor more than anybody else. Right? And why is he like, why did he mentioned that he loved the Prophet sallallahu? Why did he mentioned that he loved himself more than the Prophet Solomon at the beginning. And this is our poverty line. In fact, he did love the prophets of life even more than himself. He did.
But it was the culture that you know, this is not this is not the norm. You don't say this. You know, it's like you don't you don't say this. But in his heart and his actions, he did love the profits of them, even more than himself is just that it sounded strange.
Because, you know, like in America, there are certain things that sounds strange to them because of the culture. If you say, for example, you know, I remember speaking to a Christian when I was on the, on the plane, and I was telling this lady about Islam, and I told her, I said, he's a Christian, and she's very,
she's a practicing Christian. And she's like, she was actually you know, I was so tired. I wanted to sleep. But she was making a vow to me.
I guess on that day, she probably chose the wrong person to help dial into, but I was really sleepy. But immediately I said, Mashallah, you know, I am
I was fully awake. I said, Wow, this is an opportunity right here, let her talk and then I will talk. And so I didn't we hardly got any sleep the night before. And I was actually intending to sleep. But you know, I thought to myself, if this person who is in falsehood is so zealous in bringing you're trying to make Dawa, what am I doing thinking about sleeping? I shouldn't be thinking about sleeping at all right now. You look at her. And so we started speaking. And one of the things I mentioned, I said, I said, Islam
is more important to me than anything. Even my family,
even my family.
And so, even myself, like I love the Prophet sallallahu, Essen, and Muslims should always all love He said, she said, Well, really? There's no No, no.
You can't do that. family comes first before everything else. family comes first. And I mentioned this family, my children, my you know, my children, my husband, my parents, and so forth. Hey, they come first. So in this culture, right, normally, your instilled in a family comes first. Because family comes first in religion, of course, my baby after that later on, you know, after your friends, families and friends, and then you take care, you go to church, whatever it is, you know, you can't take care of that later. You know, but family and friends are always first or your family is always first. So the culture then that time, you know, it's like, if you told somebody outside of
the street right now, that the religion should be the most important thing, they would think No, no, no, it shouldn't ever be. Your family should always be first and yourself, should take care of yourself first, right? Most people, maybe then there might be exceptions here there, but most people will agree to them. So in that culture, it was because they were just used to thinking of course, their self before everyone else. That's no, that's always the case. That's always been the case. But so he actually did love the Prophet sallallahu. So in his actions, and in his heart, more than the prophets of Allah, but it just felt strange that he went with the cortini. This is what he said,
Well, this is what's mentioned by some of the scholars concerning this issue. And so Omar Macaca did love the prophet SAW some of the moments, but from this Hadith, we also learned something, and that, you know, we love that we should love the process of a lot more than even ourselves. We put the message of loss of a lot, so above and beyond even ourselves. And,
of course, Allah Subhana Allah is clearly mentioned
this clearly, in sort of two Toba in the Quran itself, Allah Subhana Allah says, both in Ghana
well as y Docomo, komachi rato kumaun y shirato como una patatas to mo

The poll in Canada, say if your parent if your fathers and your children, your sons, and your brothers and your spouse's and your family, your family and your family and your tribe and so forth, and the wealth, the wealth that you have acquired, in your business that you are afraid of failing in it, are you afraid Afraid of loss in your business, and your houses that you live in that you're pleased with? if these things are more beloved to you than Allah, and His Messenger and Jihad for his sake, the struggle first he had these heavy dilla Fatah bustle, then wait, this is a warning. Then wait had a yachtie aloha be empty until Allah Subhana Allah sent forth as a fear and the
federal law comes forward. Well, Lola del Carmen faster can indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala does not love the transgressors. What does that mean? That means people who those who love any of these things, their parents, the children and so forth, more than Allah and His Messenger, Allah Subhana Allah would not listen, let
alone not guide that person and what kind of people are they lay lay the common philosophy as a facade transgressors.
putting things in the mud, not just when you say something that somebody is the first step first means somebody who transgresses bounds. Like, when you, you know, mice, they call them, Felicia, because they're little creatures, but they do a lot of a lot of a lot of damage. Like how can a little, you know, little animal just like that caused so much mischief. You know, it goes into your clothes, and it just bites a little piece of it messes it up, and then it doesn't bite just one. If it only missed that one, it'd be okay. It might go through your whole wardrobe or maybe three half of your wardrobe.
And it's just a little thing. But it does have a transgresses, even the limits for that size, it does too much mischief for that size. Too much problems carries diseases and all kinds of things. Right. And so the word Fiske means transgression, through all of its transgressing the bounds and our bounds, our boundaries. And so, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, if the person loves these things more than they love Allah and His Messenger, then Allah will not guide these people,
analysts and causing fake philosophy. So because Allah says Allah will not guide those who are faceting. So everyone claims that they love the Prophet sallallahu. So if you love the Messenger of Allah, Salahuddin, sir,
if you love anybody, you want to be with them, you want to be with them. And
if you love somebody, he wants to know anything, you want to know everything about them. You want to know everything, every little thing about him, if you love that person, and this is true, when it comes to the non Muslims.
When you see sometimes the non Muslims, they want to know everything about people, they want to know everything about their movie stars,
they will know everything about their sports stars. They want to know everything about their actors, and actresses, and singers and so forth. They don't call them idols,
American idols, these singers and so forth, people idolize them make them idols, they love them. And that's why the big companies and corporations, they pay the millions and millions of dollars to sponsor or to advertise for them. Or, you know, they sometimes pay them even more than the player gets from their particular sport he played, he's playing itself, and he's really good. He will get more from endorsements that he actually gets from playing. Why do they pay them so much money? The reason is because they know that everyone wants to be like those whom they love, and the whom they adore. And they want to be liked, and they want to do the same things that they do. So if you see if
they see like a movie star, or people that they love wearing a certain type of shoe, certain brand of shoe shoes, and certain brand jackets or clothing or whatever it is, then they will immediately
try to buy that type awesome. Because they want to be like them. One great example. One great example is Michael Jordan.
Everybody knows who Michael Jordan is, right?
If we were to ask anyone here, you know, some of you
asked, what kind of cereal does Michael Jordan eat? What would you say?
Anybody knows cereal he eats?
wheelies, right. He's really, even though especially as the kids because they're more geared to the kids. If you ask the kids ask him. What kind of Syria does Michael Jordan he he'll they'll say we these. He asked him if they have you to ask them. You know?
What kind of underwear Michael Jordan wears?
They will tell you anyway. No, I can't I know what he wears. Hanes.
were you in trouble? Do you know what kind of underwear somebody wears? And that's not your spouse.
But as a different man.
Why did the Pete Why did these people you know, you see why did we say for example, what kind of underwear there's microgeneration Oh, Hanes because they paid him millions of dollars
to advertise and endorse this product. Because they know that people want to be like Mike. They want to be like them. And when they want to be like them, they want to imitate and do everything, even the way they walk. You'll see like little kids on the playground playing basketball. They will risk biting the teeth of their tongue off by sticking their tongue out when they put the ball in the hoop. Right like this. And just like Michael Jordan does because they stick their tongue out because they want to
copy him, they want to be like Mike.
Okay? Even the little things, the way that a person walks, you'll see that when they walk, even the way they celebrate when something happens, they're looking at these people, and they want to imitate them. And that's why they pay them so much.
You know, when you're at a supermarket,
you're in a supermarket, and you're walking to the checkout stand.
And you're about to, you know, bring all the grocery, put it on the conveyor belt that leads to the machine that takes care of the money. Is it right in front of you?
What do you see?
See magazines, magazines, about what
about the stars, these actors and actresses all over every single one of them. And you know, these stories?
Like, there's no benefit in them whatsoever. For example, they might speak about, oh, you know, this person.
This person here has just gotten married. And two weeks later, right? They got divorced, right? That's usually the case. Or this person uses this type of toilet.
Or this person does this and that, just little minor details, that, who cares? Like, you know, I wouldn't even want to know those things about my husband.
Right? You know, and you Why would you want to know about them?
You know, some of them, some of these little details, even where they go, where they where they shop, where they vacation, what kinds of things that they do, and how many times they've been in, in rehab and out of rehab. Cuz this is their life. So you all that's all they're talking about. But you know, what these are, these magazines
are being bought all the time.
And they because they want to know everything about them. Now, why would somebody write about something that people wouldn't want to know about?
Why are they writing about these things? Why are they following them? You see the paparazzi? You guys live in Hollywood right here, right? This is Southern California? Is your life you got you see them going around? Like even the restaurants, they want to take pictures of them? What kind of shoes are they wearing? You know, what kind of clothing are they wearing? And what time do they go out and nighttime? Which clubs? Did they just go to everything about?
Me? Why didn't Why don't they? You know, the millions of people why them?
Who cares about them? Why are they following them? Why they have? Why do they have people like following while these days, because they might get one picture that might be worth a million dollars. And they might get a story here and there that they can sell the thing because they know people will be interested in? People want to know about these things? Why do they want to know about these things?
Because they love them.
But we claim to love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
was the last time we opened the Sierra book, because we want to know what about the Messenger of Allah sallallahu. So
when was the last time
that we picked up the books of Hadith, yearning to hear what the prophet SAW Allah has said, and said,
but you know what?
Everything Barack Obama says we heard it.
Everything john mccain said, especially Sarah Palin.
Very interesting, right?
Follow every single word all the time, every single day, right? What about what the prophet SAW them did? What do you say?
volumes of available? When did we open? But you know what we have to hear? Oh, did you hear what happened? You know, after the election before the election, during the election, and so forth. Hear the story how this person was so smart, so dumb, they said this and said that
we're very interested, like return it, we make sure we come back home to see what's going on. And When's the last time
you want to know about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam so much that you wanted to hurry home. So you can pick up those books, or listen to the lecture about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when was the last time that you hate him for that?
So we did love the month and the message of a loss a lot. And so we would want to know more about the Messenger of Allah sallallahu. And the more you know about the Messenger of Allah sallallahu s and the more you love, the Messenger of Allah, Allah Allah, because the prophets of Allah bless him is loved by
when I mean he's loved by all his love by all Muslims and non Muslims alike. You might say, Well, yeah, I understand him being loved by the prophet subtleness. And he's praised by all Muslims and non Muslims alike. You might say, well, I understand that Muslims praise the Messenger of Allah loves them and they love the Messenger of Allah, Allah ism, but how can you say this, about the non Muslims?
They actually love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and they also they also
So praise Him.
Even if they don't mention it don't mean it, even if they don't say it, but in their actions and in the things that they do, they praise the prophets of the loudest. How do they praise them? They praise Him because they praise all the characteristics that the prophets have had the good qualities, those qualities
are qualities that they cherish, also. truthfulness, trustworthiness, kindness, generosity. Tell me a person that says these are bad traits
they indirectly praise the prophets of Allah because they praise these character, these characteristics. And this is what this was in the prophet SAW the value so even if they refuse to say it with their mouths, they've already praised the prophets of Allah Hadith and in praising these characteristics, that are in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So this is the final prophet, final messenger, and Prophet, and this is
the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And that's why when we love the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you have to follow the messenger philosophy.
This is a sign of love. And that's why Allah Subhana says so early in mind.
To him boon Allah halfen Debbie Rooney, your baby como la jolla fear la Koo Balcon.
Boom, fieri say oh Mohammed
in quantum to hipbone Allah indeed you love Allah factory Rooney, then follow me, you babe qumola then Allah will love you while young fear la como Zoo back home and he will forgive you your sins. Will la have a photo Rahim and Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is our forgiving, Most Merciful. So if we do indeed love Allah, then the loss of innocence then follow the prophets of Allah and Allah will love you back. And then he will forgive your sins also. And then, as for those who don't love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa they're not Muslims. They're not even Muslims. Anyone who doesn't love the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is a cafe
is a non Muslim. Anyone who doesn't love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam is a non Muslim.
Not a Muslim and mortmain type thing is a non Muslim.
Because Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Bull epilayer la Sol, but if you love him, we have to obey Him, say, obey Allah and His mess and the messenger for interval now but if you turn your back for in Allaha if you don't love and you don't follow the prophets of Allah hasten the in Allah for Indeed Allah does not love in the love and aloha liable Catherine. Allah does not love the deniers of faith, the Kufa the caffeine, Allah does not love them. So loving the process of the law lives and isn't something that sooner it's obligatory upon every Muslim. So when we love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we have to learn about the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam, we have to say Salawat upon the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say Allahumma salli Allah Muhammad wa Allah Allah Mohammed Camus Allah tala, Ibrahim Ibrahim in the Kami dimension, and every time we say we get a reward for and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said man Sana Sana Sana Sana sallallahu alayhi. Wa, who am whoever says a lot upon the process of a lot a one time a lot of time will give in turn 10 times upon him, the person who says it will return to Him, give him back in return. So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is somebody whom we all love. If we truly love him, that we would know more about him, if we knew about him, then we would love
And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he the day that he passed, the day that he passed away,
was the darkest day in the lives of the companions.
It was the darkest days in the lives of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this was the day in which Anissa nomadic nada de la Han he said, when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entered Medina when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam entered Medina, it was the Brightest Day in our lives.
There was no day like it in Medina, and on the day that he died, everything was dark and we couldn't even get ourselves
To believe we couldn't even believe that we were
putting dirt. We were burying the profits of the lies and with our hands already, they couldn't even believe it.
It was such a shock to them.
Because they love the profits of a lot, so much.
and win the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away, Omar, Abdullah Han.
He couldn't believe it.
In fact, he said he stood up in the masjid. He took on his sword. He said, The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi Salaam is not dead. Whoever says that he's dead. He said, first of all, he said he's only he's gone. Just like, just like musala salmon for 40 days, and he will come back. He hasn't died. I want to.
He couldn't believe it.
Until and then he said, may Allah
when you have metal.
And I hope he said and I hope that when the Messenger of Allah comes back,
that he cuts the hands and turns of all those who said that he died.
May Allah cut the hands and tons of those who said that he died. You might look at Oman Katara de la Hondo. And you might say
Omar was your was your patients? Right? So where's the patients?
But you know, because he loved the profits on the left so much. And it wasn't until abaco de la he got up.
And he said, Whoever he you know, he decided, he said whoever worship Mohammed Mohammed is dead. And whosoever has worships Allah, then Indeed Allah is how you he's alive and he never dies. And then he read the I
will Mr. Mohammed illa rossano by the holiday min Baba Li here Rasul.
He said, Allah says Mohammed Mohammed is just about his but it's not none but a messenger, just like the messengers of his past past before before you if he were to die,
or is killed, would you then turn turn back on your heels.
And then when I've heard this, it was the first time that he heard it. And he realized it was true. At the Messenger of Allah sort of vanished and had indeed passed away. You know what happened? his limbs, Omar, the strong one, his limbs, his legs became wobbly, and it could no longer hold his weight. And he stooped to the ground and fell on the ground. Upon hearing that point, really realizing that indeed, it is true that the messenger philosopher man had passed away.
So as Muslims,
when we hear about the day, that the prophets of Allah had passed away, this was the great, greatest calamity. This is the darkest day
that we've heard of. Because it was every Muslim should love the Prophet sallallaahu less and more than anybody else. And you know, when you hear about when you speak about the day that your grandfather died, or your grandmother died, or your father died, or your mother died, or somebody whom you love, think of somebody who you love very much. And you think about the day that they die, the day on their deathbed,
what happens to your eyes,
your eyes start tearing up. Why because you love that person, and you miss them. You want to be with them.
And so all of us,
as I mentioned, we all should love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And we also we always we also try to learn as much as we can, about the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but you know, love?
How do you measure love?
How do we know? We love the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam? And how can we show or increase our love for the profit sort of bodies? And how can we be with the profits of the lot and some people always tell you what love does love the profits of the love is because the prophets have said a lot.
And the person will be raised up with those whom you love. But give me something practical.
What can I do to be with the Messenger of Allah satellizer Give me something solid, that I can do practically go home right now and do this and they will increase my chance to be with the prophet SAW the lesson. And it will show my love for the Messenger of Allah satellite. Like physically show my love for the Prophet Solomon. What should I do? What are the things I should do?
Well, you know, companion
helping he helped the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was helping him with the widow. And so the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, said to him, ask,
he said, Ask, and then you will get another was asked, What is it that you want? And I'll make do offer you. In other words, the prophet said a lot and some said, you know, ask, what would you ask you have, you have a free, like, free path,
and a free pass, like ask anything, and the message of a lesson of the whole make to offer you. It's like, wish and you will get because of the drama, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is accepted. What would one of us if we had that in our hands, we had this ticket in our hand right here? What would you want to know? What would you ask for?
he said, as a local, as a local Morocco Taka Jin jasola
is a real lesson. He said, I would like to be with you in paradise.
That he said.
He said anything else? I mean, that's all I mean, you know, cuz maybe most of us will ask that what will we say? Well, you know, if I had three millions of be nice, you know, I can come to the machine all the time, and promise to be really good, I'll be generous.
Or, you know, a lot of money, you know, I could really be really good. Right? Or you think about something in this life, you know, like, but what he wants, the only thing he wanted was also the law. Can I want to be with you in paradise in general,
because he loved the profit subtle line more than anybody else. And so, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said,
if that's the case for India and Africa, because
that helped me in achieving this goal of yours, by increasing your security
by increasing your situation. So if you want to be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, something practical you can do now is increased your sooner. Stand up at nighttime to pray. Don't leave the Sooners sooner what sooner allotted. As soon as that the Prophet settle them always pray, pray the Sooners, increase the sadhana whenever you have time. When you make will do pray as much as you're able to.
you will be with the messenger of a bustling lot less and in paradise.
We increase your prayer and this month because the prophets Allah has given us something practical. Now, he didn't say Oh, he loved me more than anybody else. But what you know, yeah, yes, you know, how do we do that will increase your salute, then the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam would always
turn around and ask the companions if he saw any dream or anything like that, but he would always look towards the companions during modern Russia. And
he would turn and look at the faces of faces of the companions, there is not an offset, he would turn to the right side. This way, you have some scholars, he turns to the right after prayer, or there's some narrations that said the profit some turn towards the people, it was, at times the prayers that are dark, he would turn straight lit directly at the companions. Why? Because their woman in the back.
And when it's light outside a little bit, and also you can see all the way in the back because it's bright, during the time of the prophet SAW the light and the mustard was not lit, like the massages that we have now. And so he would turn, especially during fights, and he would ask the companions, and he would see who's there and who's not there. You know, he would ask about people, if they've why they weren't there. And so companion, he was not there one day. And so the prophet SAW them inquired about him. And they found out that he was sick.
And so the messenger lost a lot. So I went to visit him. And so they said, they went, he went to visit him.
he inquired about him, and he said, jasola
he was telling him about the reason for his fever. Because sometimes you get so stressed out and you're worried so much, you become sick. If you know you get stressed out your immune system because we can so forth, and you're more you know, if you're too stressed out, you're more susceptible to like little, you know, infections and things like that, and also little things. And so he was worried so much that he had a he became he got a fever because he became sick. So why was he worried about that?
He was thinking about the Messenger of Allah Southern lesson. And he was thinking that
he said you had a sort of a, I was thinking
you know, the deeds that you do. In comparison to the what I do.
I have nothing and I'm I was thinking even if I did achieve paradise,
I wouldn't be in the same level as you are messenger of Allah, O Messenger of Allah.
the prophets of Allah lays and said,
a person will be with whom they love.
And so at that moment, that is an American of the law who is said, Upon hearing this Hadith, these words from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, everybody was happy.
It was like the day in Medina, it was like eight because everyone was so happy. Why were they happy?
Because they had the same concerns. And then when the Prophet sort of said, that person that will be with them, those in the love, because they themselves knew deep down in their hearts, that they love the prophets, Allah lives and more than anybody else, even themselves. And that's why they're so happy.
But when we hear this Hadith,
a person will be with those who he loved. Who do we think we think of Yeah, Allah, you know, a child, I hopefully I'll be with my grandfather, my grandmother, my wife, my husband, and so far, they shall light up with all of them. But the first person you should think about is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And that's the reason we when we hear this Hadith, a person will be with those whom he loves. Why are we happy?
Remember, what I'm telling you right now that the Prophet son said a person will be with those whom he loves? Why are we like smiling with joy jumping up and down? Why isn't it eat for us? Do you know why?
Because we don't really love the process of a lot
more than ourselves.
that's why we're not happy.
Because this is not something we're concerned about what we're yearning for.
Because if we were, we will be crying to be with a profit, subtle vandalism, a piece of wood cries to be with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu said, and we're human, led flesh, breathing, humans. We don't yearn to be with the profits that
a person would be with also he loves Should we eat for us also.
But it's not because we know we don't love the Passover more than ourselves.
So if that's the case,
then let's do something about it.
Let's start studying about the prophets of Atlantis and learning about his character.
Let's increase our salute, and follow the way that the prophets I'm taught what, how he dealt with his wives and how they dealt with the spouse, how the companions dealt with, you know that Sahabi yet and if we love Omar ricotta, if we love Abu Bakar de la, we should follow in their examples. These are examples for us. If we truly indeed love them, then indeed we would be like them, and we would imitate them we would try our very best to be like them. That's an Illa who entertains I'm off about you.
Allah knew this obey your God. And you claim that you love him. Have the laemmli feel PRC buddy? Oh, he said, this logic. Indeed, this is a lines of poetry. This logic is indeed strange. This is not logical. That you you say if you love somebody, but then you disobey them, no kind of book aside and law Whoa, if your love was indeed true, you would have obeyed Him. In then we'll have Bulla you have omotayo indeed the person
towards those a person who loves towards the one he loves, is obedient.
So we need a love Allah and His messenger. Then we should follow the ways that the prophet SAW the virus and His Messenger, and inshallah ended with one final
story of a companion.
His name is
Habib was a companion, one of the early
companions who accepted Islam. He was captured.
And he assaulted the Meccans he was captured in an ambush and he assaulted Americans.
And so the Americans are trying to avenge some of their deaths in the battles before and so they killed they went to kill Kobe, but they were they also were they also knew the sanctity of Mecca. So they brought Kobe outside of Mecca so they wouldn't be killed in the heart of the sacred area and sacred, the holy place. And so when they brought him out, he he wanted to pray Well, before they killed him because they brought the whole all the children they announced, like you know, they were gonna kill her baby, anybody who wanted to come to witness it, they they're free to do so. And so the hundreds and hundreds of those the Meccans they came to witness this, the witness this, this,
this killing of Kobe. They want to kill Kobe.
So the non Muslims when they were about to, they wanted to kill him. He said, Can you give me just to rock as time for to rock us? So I can just pray to Rocco. And he prayed to the rock as he prayed very to light rock as he said, You know, I really wanted to pay more. But I didn't want to make you think that I was afraid of what's going to happen to Ellis. He's not afraid. Why isn't he afraid?
And then they try to make fun of him. You know, because they're trying to make fun of him this way you get for following Mohamed. They're trying to say it and what this is what you get for following Mohammed. And so they said to him to Abu Mohammed mechanic, said, Would you rather have Mohammed now would you rather have him have at your place right now?
Would you rather have Muhammad in your place right now Kobe? Like this is what you get for following him? Now Now, what do you think you're going to be killed because of this. And so he said, that one by law will lead by Allah, the mighty Mo, I would not want the Prophet subtler. dnab showkat and new Shaka for me. So I wouldn't even want a thorn to prick him.
And in place of this, like if a thrower were to pick him, just to pick him a little bit and you take it up, I would be free. I wouldn't even let that just kill me. But don't have a thorn pick the profit subtle, and it's the is the honest answer here. Take my life. I wouldn't even want the thorn to harm, too little harm like that to the messenger of the lesson, the lesson? What are you talking about the process of being in my place.
And so, he may do it to Allah subhanho wa Taala against those people. And then he said, Oh Allah,
There are no Muslims at all. I send my sunlamps to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then they said the amount of time the profit sort of managed and said, and upon Habib, you know, he returned to sunlamps to the club and the profit and the profit stops and mentioned what had just happened to
that were the incident of Kobe. And so Kobe, this is how much he loved the profits of the money. And this is how much the companions love the messenger for muscle alive. They weren't even one little thing to happen to the Prophet, subtle, and even their life, even if they were to save their life, because
this is what we mean by loving the prophets of the lightness and even more than yourself.
Loving the profit, subtle, less and more than yourself. And so
when we go back to our houses right now, a couple of things we can do, as I mentioned, learn more about the Messenger of Allah subtle lesson, because your love increases with recognition in knowledge of who would have these qualities. You know, some of the non Muslims, the non Muslims who read who wrote about the prophet SAW them for the lesson or read about him. Even Gandhi, you know, what Gandhi said, that Gandhi, you know, he said, when he read about the prophets of the lesson, he had read the seer of the profits on the two volumes. He said, When I finished the second volume,
I was yearning
to know more about this man,
this wonderful man, his character is as known as his humbleness. I was yearning to know more about him, he only had two volumes. He didn't have the internet, go Google and search.
That's all he had about the process. And I said I was yearning to be the next buyer.
But he only had those two volumes to me.
And that was Gandhi brothers.
How about as Muslims
on a read about the Prophet sallallahu. So then you know what?
You might say what the Prophet Solomon passed away, but you know, anyone who has sahadi so have Muslim, or any of the books of Hadith in the house, as Timothy said, Whoever has this book of mine, jammin a Jammie Jammie is a gem in his book, as soon as it's like he has the profits of the lot. So he has a walking, he has a talking profit in sales.
So if you have the profit sort of talking,
these are his words, these exact words. Read them. And then sit down when you're reading. Imagine yourself
as if you are in the Prophet salallahu Masjid. And he's saying these words to you
put yourself in that state.
And then when you close it, tears will come down to your eyes because you want more but he has to go to work tomorrow.
So you have to sleep.
But then if you did love the process a lot so he would wake up early in the morning, so you can increase your schedule and then be with him. And the agenda for third dose. So May Allah subhanho wa Taala
accept our deeds during the month of Ramadan and accept our disease make it sincere
May Allah subhanho wa Taala just as he has gathered this here
also gathers again in paradise with the prophets of Allah ism and messengers, and the Prophet Mohammed Salah Lohan is a man and his companions and the righteous side of him those who are pious and the martyrs and the righteous people in the city have been truthful and truthful people may Allah subhanho wa Taala gathers all with them in Philadelphia that
Haman sallallahu ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam
pay for your speech last week when
I have a comment
inshallah Allah Allah would honor us, for us to be beside our social
agenda inshallah. So, honored
what I find in the society today amongst Muslim
what you gave was good and hamdulillah that needs to be presented, but outside of this forum, what I hear in the hood bus, in the masjid, in lectures, etc, I find and after giving it a lot of thought, I find that the presentation of the sunlights always leading towards the individualistic expression of our society, you know, the sooner
whereas we also know reading the books of the serum,
etc, that you know, arasu symbolize alum who was also the head of a movement going towards a specific direction, yes. And it common Medina did not just pop up like toast, you know, he worked for the first three years in the outcome. And he taught the core of the Sahaba that kotla was there. And it continued all until the time he was in Mecca and Medina Can you know, we know that not to go into the details. That part of the Sunnah is never discussed in you know, how he was heading a movement in a practical way. We hear about the glorious attributes a lot of socializing, trustworthiness, etc. How he was truthful, how he was a good husband, how he was, you know, etc, how
he's good with the kids, the animals, etc. But when it comes to the head of a movement, going in a specific direction, and I don't mean this sarcastically to any heartbeat, I mean, the bottom I'm trying to be sincere, and I lost.
I lost my witness. I hear politically correct Cottbus Friday after Friday. I never hear the expression. The collective You know, he was the head of a movement with specific actions innocence in a coastal society, going towards the establishment of an Islamic Society. And I'll give you an example. And I have my opinion on voting on this. And I this is not a discussion on voting, whether it's halal or haram, I have my opinion. And I'm not going to say what my opinion is because I don't want us to go in that direction. But for example, in just interacting with XYZ Muslims, if I bring up
the Sooners relation to issues such as voting, and this is just an example of what I said. They say, Brother, what does that have to do with this? What does the sooner have to do with this soprano law? The sooner is complete is part of the complete system. So Islam does have something to say about that. And I hear one was from and I'll start with this, I hear, for example, the long hood bus 90% of the football is about auto selection. And if in the Quran, the last 10% and I'm not going to mention what subjects there the last 10% call the Muslims to a specific set of actions, which have nothing to do with the first 90% of the whole book. How did you give me all of these beautiful
details of the Sunnah. And then in the last 10%, whoever the Habib the speaker, the MSA speaker, whatever, he'll give me prescriptions on actions that actually contradict the Sunnah. So, we're living in a very incoherent presentation of the tsunami always leans towards the individualistic, so shall I can make a few comments concerning that maybe mentioned what I think is maybe the reason for
what might be the cause or why we ourselves living in the West.
You know, have speakers who speak about certain topics only and they think that's Islam, and they believe that certain sections, well, Adam,
as you know, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spent 13 years in Mecca.
A lot of people don't realize and for those in Sharla, who take first of all take the taking or taking the classes, class, about the shepherds path, the Sierra, you will see that when you study about the seal of the prophets of Allah
that all of this encompasses the seal of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, in, you know, as the course the head of movement, and, you know, teaching the Muslims in all circumstances, and in fact, the first 13 years of this era, dealt with Muslims dealing with non Muslims. And people, many people fail to realize that the Muslims in Mecca, were living in a non Muslim country, as a religious minority. So the majority of the dour life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. was him living with non Muslims, and in non Muslim society,
trying to convey this religion, and how did he organize the companions? And how did he teach the companions, these were all
issues that the prophets of Allah dealt with. But when we read, you know, when we hear about the fatigues and the speakers, and so on, and so forth, speaking about this, and sometimes we read books, the aspect of the legislation of minorities, and how to deal with when you're living in some countries, is not neglected. But you know, it's not given us right, the right, you know, that the need for it is much more than what is actually what is actually presented. And so the reason for it is, one of them is that the majority of the scholars before scholar for, they didn't like to deal with hypothetical things.
They didn't like to deal with hypothetical things. And they used they used to deal with things that were at hand, but it didn't mean that they didn't have in these rulings, and so forth, but they were there, but not to the extent, because not to that, that not to the extent that we ourselves need in our time nowadays, because they were usually living in a Muslim society. And so if you're living in Muslim society, there, you know, especially when you have the philosopher established during their times, and so forth, they had no leaders and so forth. And of course they are, there's always
certain issues you can bring up and relating to the whole affair and so forth, at you know, during the times, especially later on, and that that the scholars faced, but these were not the
not the main things that actually the read the normal people, the general public, were in need of, during those times. This is what they needed. And so that's why many of the books and so forth during those times dealt with the fact that had that they had to deal with, but they didn't do so much with the what we actually really, really need, like right now, which is a fact of dealing with non Muslims in the Muslim Muslim society, how do we get get together? How do we join hands and so forth. And so while I'm this is just a personal opinion, concerning those issues. But I agree with the brother that, you know, during the time of the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam, the prophet said a
lot as a Muslim complete statement, and he has a husband, and he was, he was also, you know, as a religious leader, the leader in general, and all of these aspects, and all of these affairs, and this is what leads Muslims to go astray is the thing that leads Muslim not not to these actions. Sorry, but the things that the thing is that Muslims, they take one part of Islam, and they make that the whole of Islam.
For example, there are certain people who take, you know, the Dawa, and that was serious. And it's something that we all should, you know, we all should be involved in. But that's not all of Islam.
And some people they take the, you know, the
spiritual matters and spiritual does here to the force mean purifying the soul and so forth. And they take that and they make that the deed and they leave knowledge. So they end up going astray because they focus on one and making that the whole whole religion
and some people they focus on certain certain aspects and they leave another you'll see some people focusing Mashallah on following the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu in some and if you prayed certain ways, you know, if you did, you wore certain clothing, they would immediately scold you.
But then you see them the way that they scold you is not the sadhana.
is not the sadhana, the way that they talk to you. Let me give you an example of a person.
This is in the prophets, mustard I was praying and prophets mustard while I was a student during that time,
an old man prayed, he was he started he was starting to pray. He said Allah, Allah, Allah as was.
Right. And so the the brother looked at it. He said, Subhana Allah, just say Allahu Akbar, he went from behind him, and he held his hands. He said that, he said, that's bigger. That's not the sooner
So you know what that brother that the man said to him, he said, and the way you're talking to me is that the sooner
they understand you focus on one thing, and you think that's your whole deal. But you don't take everything. And when the prophet SAW Allah also another reason why we have footage nowadays, you get up, they get up and speak, give their advice, go home to their families, close the door. And that's it.
What did the process of them do? When they gave the witness, he came down, interacted with Muslims, he ate with him, he traveled, he slept with him, he went, trips with him, knew the set, they sat together, they went out did the things to get with each other, it was all it was teaching,
theoretical, and then practical, showing them how to apply that immediately. Practically, it's not just giving them this, and just going away going to go into the side, he will actually lead by example. And that's what we're missing. In our time, right now, a lot of times, that's what we're missing, that we don't have this interaction with, you know, our Muslim leaders or the this, you know, we do have in the profit center a lot. So, people felt comfortable with him. They wanted to be with him.
And because every time he spoke to somebody, there was a smile on his face. So much. So the Emerald loss, he said,
he went he approached the Prophet subtle, and he said, The Prophet Solomon, every time he looked at me, he always a smile at me
to the point where that to the point that he even when I was
to the point that when I was one day, I approached him, I said, jasola
is Abu Bakar better, or am I better than him.
And then profits at work as a problem was treating him so kindly. And he's smiling at him all the time, he thought that he was his favorite
all the time. And so he said, the process of setting aboubaker is better than you. Okay, you accept that we're bucha, right? We accept that, you know, we know his his status. So he said, well is am I better or not better?
The province of Alberta said, Oh, what is better than you? And they said, then I understood.
And then I understood to all the companions, when he spoke to them, everybody, because he interacted he didn't just sit and equipment member, oh, Muslims fear Allah. And then he went, they went home, close the doors, and that's it. Oh, he interacted with it. And this is what we need, you know, the complete, Islam is complete, that you don't take just one section and the other section. And well, I was just, also you made a comment, I was just making a comment.
Exactly like that for reminding us though. That's a very good point that you're making, I think it should be
brought up to maybe some of the speakers also, as you know, everybody this D this religion is based on advice, sincere advice. So you give you advice, inshallah, and to no matter who the person is yes.
I agree with him, to basically,
for him what he says into life, like we all like
Live a life like that.
But the truth is, like, how do we like to move to the other point?
Like how it all
divided even in like,
Okay, what this what we need to do as Muslims? That's a very good question, good comment that you made.
I mentioned that we need to move from theory now to practice.
We hear a lot. That's theory when the person gives us to speak now we got to put we have to put these things to practice. And we also have to put everything in practice, like completely, you know, from all aspects of Islam. So what do we do? What we need to do now
is start thinking about how to how to put these things to practice. Let me give you an example. And something that we can do also in practice, so that we can get people more motivated to put the sadhana to practice, in their personal life. Also, also generally as a, as a community, just one example. And then of course, you can do many other other other examples. Think of some sort. Now let me give you an example. fastly Mondays and Thursdays. We know that the profits are the lows and faster Mondays and Thursday. Okay. Instead of thinking to yourself, you know what, I should focus on Mondays and Thursdays. Think of yourself, how can I get other people to focus on Mondays and
Thursdays? How can I get other people to do motivated, awesome, what can we do? Well you can do is for example, we can say every single day, you just start with a small group or your friends
And Thursday, just tell them, you have like a sofa area where you break your fast together in the back of the machine.
And then to remind the brothers say brothers, you know, tomorrow's Monday, would you like to fast with us, we're going to be breaking our fast in the in the machine together, then when people start seeing that now Thursday you're doing that maybe the mom will join in it, maybe then they might not join in and so forth. Try to get some just reminded. So we should do we should do this, and then try to do it. Try to put that into practice. And then people will start seeing it. In practice. They're like, Oh, wow, you know, that's something that's really, really good. During the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they didn't even have to do that the prophet SAW the line, when it's time when he
was fasting, he would tell the companions and then they would, they would break their fast whenever they had, and whenever they were able to break it together. And this itself, this application put into practice, and you have to start with a couple people. And then you know, setting it up making it possible and maybe announcing to the people tomorrow is Thursday, who would like to break the fast brothers bring your your dates and we're gonna break a fast together in the machine. It's not Ramadan, outside Ramadan, but we're reviving that sadhana fast right now. And then this is just one meal. One thing we can do other some of the other things also just a little bit of time and this
will help us work together also. Because when you fast together and you break your fast together This builds bonds in the community and strengthens This is one example and you can do this with every one of the other ones. The other ones just by reminding each other and then trying to get people to to do it a little bit at a time.
So if I think the brother put up five minutes a while ago,
show that if you would just like to NVMe Allah subhana wa takes up from us and if I said anything that harmed anybody or made anyone feel bad or offended anyone Please forgive me Sheldon May Allah Subhana accept our deeds and May Allah interest agenda. inshallah.
Allah Allah Allah envy Mohammed
