00:01:12--> 00:01:16

the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said

00:01:19--> 00:01:24

these were the first words that he mentioned upon arriving in Medina

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

Are you harness

00:01:28--> 00:01:28

that's just the

00:01:30--> 00:01:30

word

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

was similar he

00:01:36--> 00:01:42

was on looby, lane, oneness with em, that hudl jannetty be Salam.

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

O people

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

of sasaram.

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

Spread this alarms

00:01:55--> 00:01:58

and feed the poor and give him food

00:02:00--> 00:02:03

was civil or ham and enjoying relations.

00:02:06--> 00:02:12

And pray at nighttime was a little bit late. When NASA that whole agenda to be Salam.

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

So Islam

00:02:17--> 00:02:21

is the religion of peace. And it starts with peace.

00:02:22--> 00:02:23

And that is why

00:02:24--> 00:02:30

the first thing that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam ordered us to do.

00:02:32--> 00:02:38

Upon arriving in Medina, he was his companions and advise them to give the salams giving this up

00:02:42--> 00:03:03

on him coming together amongst the science of the Day of Judgment, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I akuna salam, Allah Meriva that the salams will be only to those whom you know, or the salons will only be when you need something. When you need to know something. For example, you ask

00:03:04--> 00:03:07

a person and you say Assalamualaikum, brother,

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

where's the closest restaurant?

00:03:12--> 00:03:13

When you're hungry?

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

You would not have given salaams to him.

00:03:18--> 00:03:23

If you did not know if you did not need to know where the closest restaurant was.

00:03:25--> 00:03:29

And so when it's near the Day of Judgment, this is what will happen.

00:03:30--> 00:03:51

That it will not be for the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala it will not be a form of money by the end it will be lost. And people will only give salons when they need something. And that's why when you walk by somebody, and you say Assalamu alaikum he turns to you while they come Sarah, Yes, brother, what do you want?

00:03:52--> 00:04:00

He asked you right there, what do you want? Why because people do not give salaams unless they need something. And then

00:04:02--> 00:04:04

the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said,

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

Well, I'll play my time

00:04:10--> 00:04:23

and provide food for people. Men give to others. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, either Tabatha Moroccan, so

00:04:25--> 00:04:30

when you make soup with broth, or any food that has plenty of broth,

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

then increase the broth, increase the water

00:04:35--> 00:04:53

and then give some to your neighbors when you make it. And this is something that will build love. Because when we give each other when we help each other and we give gifts to each other, this increases love amongst each other. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said

00:04:55--> 00:04:56

the heart due to Habu

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

exchange gifts and you

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

Love each other. So you don't give gifts only on how do

00:05:06--> 00:05:21

you give gifts? Anytime, in Islam, it's always a time to give gifts. And it doesn't have to be a lot. Even if it's a small amount, if people are not expecting,

00:05:22--> 00:05:28

they will appreciate it even if it's a small amount. And the Messenger of Allah so like Ben said,

00:05:29--> 00:05:33

was, you know our ham and enjoin relations?

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

You have to enjoin relations.

00:05:37--> 00:05:53

You have to know who your relatives are, know who your uncles are, know who your cousins are, and then join relations with them. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said

00:05:55--> 00:06:16

boomin and Sammy cometa, Sylvie, our hamaca. Know your lineage, know the people who are related to you, so that you can enjoin relations. And so, this is an order for the prophets of Allah Allah. So, if we do not enjoin relations, then we will not enter gender.

00:06:17--> 00:06:22

Why those who cut relations do not enter Paradise.

00:06:23--> 00:06:26

The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:06:27--> 00:06:31

when a person crosses the bridge over jahannam

00:06:33--> 00:06:47

he needs two things. Two things will come on his right and on his left one will be Amana. trustworthiness, trust. The second will be

00:06:48--> 00:06:49

r Rahim.

00:06:50--> 00:06:55

Rahim enjoining relations. If you don't have both of them,

00:06:56--> 00:06:57

you need both.

00:06:58--> 00:07:11

If you do not have both you will fall one side of the another or another. So you have to be trustworthy, and you have to join relations. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:07:13--> 00:07:14

Jana

00:07:16--> 00:07:20

a person who cuts relations will not enter gentlemen,

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

in Hadith in Sahih Bukhari

00:07:24--> 00:07:27

and then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam said,

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

was a little bit late.

00:07:31--> 00:07:31

What nasally

00:07:33--> 00:07:43

that whole agenda to be salam, and pray at nighttime, when others are sleeping, and you will intergenic in peace.

00:07:44--> 00:08:00

So the time when everyone is sleeping, we should be up calling Allah subhanho wa Taala. In the this is one of the deeds of the people paradise. If you want to be amongst the people of Paradise,

00:08:01--> 00:08:03

one of the best things you can do

00:08:04--> 00:08:05

is to pray the hygiene.

00:08:07--> 00:08:08

And Allah

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

has created us to pray the hygiene.

00:08:14--> 00:08:16

If we pray the hygiene,

00:08:17--> 00:08:21

we will have the most energy. Most people think

00:08:23--> 00:08:37

that if you wake up at nighttime, in the daytime, you're going to be drowsy. You're going to be sleepy, and you're not going to be productive. But the truth of the matter is it's the opposite.

00:08:38--> 00:08:40

That's why the Messenger of Allah

00:08:41--> 00:08:51

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when a person goes to sleep, the shape on ties three knots behind his back.

00:08:52--> 00:08:55

When he wakes up. One night is untied.

00:08:57--> 00:09:00

When he made when he wakes up and remembers the last one not his time.

00:09:02--> 00:09:02

When he makes

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

the other knot is untied.

00:09:08--> 00:09:15

And when he stands up to pray, the final nod is untied and he will wake up in the morning

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

he will wake up

00:09:20--> 00:09:41

naturally upon forgiveness. He will wake up full of energy, feeling good. So some people they say you know I'm not a morning person every morning I'm always tired. The reason you're not a morning person is because you are not at 100 person because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said

00:09:43--> 00:09:47

if you don't the shavon urinate in his ears,

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

urinates in his ears, and he will wake up hobbies and knifes Caslen he will wake up feeling terrible, lazy, terrible and late.

00:10:02--> 00:10:03

So,

00:10:04--> 00:10:10

when you wake up at nighttime, and try to hide you, gives you energy in the daytime.

00:10:12--> 00:10:13

Just recently,

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

there was a study

00:10:19--> 00:10:28

done by buying a university in the United States, the one of the Ivy League universities, either it was

00:10:30--> 00:10:32

Yale or Princeton, one of those universities.

00:10:34--> 00:10:36

They studied sleep

00:10:37--> 00:10:39

for 20 years,

00:10:41--> 00:10:46

for 20 years, and then they got the findings. They said, What's the best way to sleep?

00:10:48--> 00:11:11

They found out that if you take a shower, or you rinse your face before you go to sleep, you will have more energy because your sleep will be deeper, you will go to the deep stage faster, and you'll be more replenished. Much more energized. Six hours will be equivalent to eight hours.

00:11:12--> 00:11:20

And you know, the Messenger of Allah on the latas and taught us. He said if you are if you have slept with your spouse,

00:11:21--> 00:11:23

and you want to go to sleep,

00:11:24--> 00:11:31

make sure you make a make sure you take a shower first. If you can't, then at least make you do

00:11:32--> 00:11:36

Subhana Allah, you understand of Geneva?

00:11:37--> 00:11:41

If you make Moodle, you can't pray you can't do anything with this.

00:11:42--> 00:11:46

Why did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell us to make Udo?

00:11:48--> 00:12:05

Was it for prayer for me? No. It is for sleeping. Because when you make Lulu before you go to sleep, your sleep will be much more replenishing. You have more energy, and you'll benefit more from your sleep. So

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

they also found another point. Let the prophets Allah mentioned this over 1400 years ago.

00:12:14--> 00:12:15

So they found

00:12:17--> 00:12:21

they found another point relating to sleep.

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

And that is

00:12:25--> 00:12:28

if you wish to sleep for one third of the night,

00:12:29--> 00:12:35

and then you wake up, you set your alarm. This is what they said in the article. You set your alarm when you wake up.

00:12:37--> 00:12:43

Then you go back to sleep again. set your alarm for another one sixth of the night or one third of the night.

00:12:44--> 00:12:50

And then you go back to sleep. And then you wake up again. You will be more energized.

00:12:51--> 00:12:58

You might say why did you know that? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam inside Bukhari and Muslim.

00:12:59--> 00:13:03

He said the best fast is the fast the profit that

00:13:05--> 00:13:09

he used to fast for one day, and we break is fast the other day.

00:13:11--> 00:13:12

And the best

00:13:13--> 00:13:33

sleep or the best prayer sorry, the best prayer is a prayer prophet that would also he used to sleep one third of the nights and then wake up for prayer and sleep another six then wake up for prayer that he would want sleep again until fudge it and he would wake up. You know what he just described.

00:13:34--> 00:13:45

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam describes describe the best way to sleep. And the people who studied for 20 years. They said they just found out about it.

00:13:47--> 00:14:06

The Messenger of Allah mentioned it over 20 over 1400 years ago, 1400 years over 1400 years ago. We don't need the studies from this university and that university. But for us, Muslims, when we hear something from the doctor we like to listen.

00:14:07--> 00:14:16

But then when we hear from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who is receiving knowledge from the one who created us who knows us better without it.

00:14:18--> 00:14:36

But Allah subhanho wa Taala says Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Kabir does he? Does he not know whom he has created and easy, all subtle, aware. So Allah subhanho wa Taala created us to pray the hijab

00:14:37--> 00:14:51

because He created us to worship Him. And so if you apply the Sunnah correctly, then you will fulfill your objective in life and you will also

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

live the most healthy and the best life also. For it is guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the messenger of

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

Rasul Allah Allah He was Adam said,

00:15:03--> 00:15:07

after salam wa clima time was similar ham

00:15:09--> 00:15:24

was a little bit lately when as soon as that hulu's agenda to be Salam. So pray at nighttime when others are sleeping, you intergender with peace. The word Islam means peace. So as Muslims,

00:15:25--> 00:15:34

we work for peace. as Muslims, Islam, prospers in peace, not in war.

00:15:35--> 00:15:42

Where do we learn that from during the time of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:15:43--> 00:15:47

when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam agreed with the Quraysh

00:15:49--> 00:15:55

upon the Treaty of a few dB, that they would not have any more wars for 10 years.

00:15:56--> 00:16:09

10 years no more wars as a result of peace. More people accepted Islam during the 17 months after the treaty,

00:16:10--> 00:16:14

then over 20 years before that,

00:16:15--> 00:16:46

what is that show? That shows that Islam prospers in peace, not in war. And we as Muslims, we work towards peace, and Islam is the religion of peace. Islam is the religion of peace to the point where even us in the household of the Muslims, we are also ordered to be just and we are also ordered to keep the house at peace. So when we are at home,

00:16:48--> 00:17:00

we are ordered to play our players and were ordered to respect our parents were ordered to be at peace with all and that's why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:17:02--> 00:17:04

when he sent for Abu Bakar

00:17:06--> 00:17:16

repeated the words of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Also, when Osama Abu Zaid, radi Allahu anhu was sent,

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

he was ordered to not he said you're going to meet people.

00:17:24--> 00:17:28

Amongst them there are people who will be in the temples and churches.

00:17:29--> 00:17:35

Do not kill them. Meaning Do not kill the priests. Do not kill the monks.

00:17:36--> 00:17:38

Do not slaughter any animal

00:17:39--> 00:17:44

dinner, slaughter any animal and do not burn down any trees.

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

In other words,

00:17:47--> 00:17:51

during war, and do not kill the woman and nor do you should you kill any of the children

00:17:53--> 00:17:57

do these other orders during the time of war?

00:17:59--> 00:18:20

So how much more at peace? Should the Muslims be in times of peace when there's no war? Even the animals should feel safe from the Muslims? Even the trees should feel safe from the Muslims during times of war. So that's why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described the Muslim

00:18:22--> 00:18:23

he said Muslim

00:18:24--> 00:18:29

men Saleemul Muslim Muna melissani he was already

00:18:30--> 00:18:31

a Muslim

00:18:32--> 00:18:39

is he? Who others feel safe from his hands and his tongue?

00:18:41--> 00:18:42

If somebody asked you,

00:18:43--> 00:18:44

a non Muslim comes

00:18:46--> 00:18:49

and says, What is the Muslim? Tell him

00:18:50--> 00:19:19

that a Muslim is somebody whom others feel as safe from the Muslim doesn't harm anybody physically. Nor does he harm anybody with his tongue also. He doesn't speak bad words. And he's not vulgar. So the Muslim is at peace with himself. At nighttime. He stands up in praise. He's at peace with himself. He's a peace with the animals. He's at peace with the plants in the trees and everything around him.

00:19:20--> 00:19:25

And we Muslims are ordered to be kind and merciful to all.

00:19:26--> 00:19:33

And that's why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us of a story of a woman.

00:19:34--> 00:19:35

Now this woman

00:19:38--> 00:19:39

was a prostitute.

00:19:41--> 00:19:43

She was very thirsty.

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

And so she came across a well.

00:19:48--> 00:19:52

She went down the world to drink from the well with the water from the well.

00:19:54--> 00:19:58

And when she came out of the well, she saw a dog

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

licking the dirt, the mud around the well.

00:20:06--> 00:20:08

And so she said to herself,

00:20:09--> 00:20:16

you know this well, or this dog is just as thirsty as I was

00:20:17--> 00:20:20

before I went into the world to drink.

00:20:21--> 00:20:24

So she went and returned to the well.

00:20:25--> 00:20:33

And she filled up her leather socks with water. And she gave this dog water to drink.

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

And as a result of that,

00:20:38--> 00:20:42

Allah forgave her her sins.

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

In another narration,

00:20:45--> 00:20:52

Allah entered her paradise, why forgiving water to a dog?

00:20:54--> 00:20:58

If, if no one else palani rahimullah said, if

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

the reward for giving water to a dog is as such, how much more reward

00:21:08--> 00:21:17

would a person give over the person gets if they were to give food and water to a human?

00:21:18--> 00:21:21

And that's why he said it is permissible for the Muslims.

00:21:23--> 00:21:25

Based on this, Heidi,

00:21:26--> 00:21:36

to give sadaqa to non Muslims to give food to non Muslims, if you're going to get that type of reward for a dog, how about a human?

00:21:38--> 00:21:39

And he also said,

00:21:41--> 00:21:45

but not everybody. Not every prostitutes?

00:21:46--> 00:21:52

Not every prostitute that gives water to a dog who enter Paradise.

00:21:53--> 00:22:01

Let me pass it to the guest. What if the dog went to paradise? What is the difference between this prostitute and other people who give water to dog?

00:22:04--> 00:22:14

It is the sincerity and the love. That's in the heart. So when you do something, when you give and help Muslims,

00:22:15--> 00:22:40

how greater is the reward? If you were to sincerely provide water for the Muslims, if you were to sincerely provide food for the Muslims, so the Muslims in the east and the west, we are always at peace. We work locally. But we always think globally. So when we are eating, like right now

00:22:41--> 00:22:51

we have food in our houses, in our refrigerators, probably enough for two weeks to a month.

00:22:54--> 00:23:03

If we did not go shopping, we would still not starve. We would have enough rice, fish whatever it is to eat to survive for a while.

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

We just finished the month or Milan.

00:23:07--> 00:23:14

We have stopped fasting. But you know there are some people right now. They are still fasting.

00:23:16--> 00:23:40

They are our brothers and sisters in Somalia. There are suffering from a drought. Some of them are walking for three to seven days, looking, going to the refugee camps, going to the camps to find food. And some of them don't make it. Some of the children don't make it. They're crossing deserts,

00:23:41--> 00:23:45

to find food. They are being tested.

00:23:47--> 00:23:49

Because they are being tested

00:23:51--> 00:23:52

by poverty.

00:23:54--> 00:23:59

They are being tested by hardship. We here

00:24:00--> 00:24:02

are also being tested.

00:24:03--> 00:24:10

There's their test is very bit great. Our test is also very great. What is that test

00:24:12--> 00:24:14

the test of prosperity.

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

Allah will test the person with poverty and prosperity. Just because Allah gives you money

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

does not mean that Allah loves you.

00:24:29--> 00:24:50

If you're thankful for the money, the wealth that you have, and you given the way of the law, that's the way to show thankfulness. So Allah is testing us with prosperity and it's a big test. Because most people during the times of poverty hardship, they are more likely to return to Allah.

00:24:51--> 00:24:58

But in times of prosperity, we are more likely to forget Allah subhana wa Tada.

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

But it's also a test you have to understand. So how can we pass this test?

00:25:07--> 00:25:12

The way we pass the test is any blessing that you have.

00:25:14--> 00:25:18

Spend that blessing in the way of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:25:19--> 00:25:35

It is if you hear that there are Muslims or indeed in other countries, then help them out also, amongst the characteristics of the people of jinn, the matzah cone, Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:25:37--> 00:25:37

that

00:25:38--> 00:25:39

shaytani r rajim.

00:25:41--> 00:25:42

was

00:25:44--> 00:25:45

in

00:25:48--> 00:25:49

the coma,

00:25:56--> 00:25:58

the,

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

and compete in vie with each other, for the forgiveness of Allah, and the paradise of witches, the width of the heavens and the earth. right that's been prepared for the believers. alladhina eufy, Buena Vista rah, rah, those who spend in times of ease and hardship many of you have or you don't have you always spent

00:26:28--> 00:26:34

and you're always generous, those are the matakohe. And so Muslims,

00:26:35--> 00:26:38

as I mentioned, we are at peace

00:26:39--> 00:26:41

between us we say Assalamualaikum.

00:26:43--> 00:26:44

And when we pray,

00:26:46--> 00:26:51

we say also was he say this hellums,

00:26:52--> 00:26:56

Salama Elena, why our Allah, Allah Hassan

00:26:58--> 00:27:02

and upon us and all the servants of Allah, who are solidly,

00:27:03--> 00:27:36

and we're always willing to meet each other, we make do items and peace upon others. And so this religion is the religion of peace. This religion is the religion of peace between us and Allah, between us and the people, and between us and the animals, between us and the plants, between us and the world. And so the default is not war. In Islam, the default is peace. And so that's why

00:27:37--> 00:27:40

we have to establish peace, peace within ourselves.

00:27:41--> 00:27:48

And we have to establish peace with others. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said,

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

he said,

00:27:51--> 00:27:56

Hi Suma. Wherever you are, Fear Allah, wherever you are.

00:27:58--> 00:28:15

Fear Allah. So you perfect. The connection between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala and follow up a bad deed with a good deed. wahala xs, behold open Hasson and also deal with people with good

00:28:17--> 00:28:19

manners and good character.

00:28:20--> 00:28:33

Because when you're dealing with others with good character, it establishes love and establishes peace. And that's why if we want to intergender which is the Daraa Salaam,

00:28:34--> 00:28:39

which is the abode of peace and Allah invites us to the abode of peace.

00:28:40--> 00:28:41

Allah says

00:28:43--> 00:28:44

Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:28:47--> 00:29:43

inviting us not just telling us, he says what La Jolla do Isla Daraa Salaam, Allah invites you to Daraa Salaam, the abode of peace. And so if we are peace, if we find peace in this life, between us and Allah, between us and the people, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward us with the abode of peace, which is darussalam. And so that's why we should do so between us and our family members. And we should continue to do so all the time. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala just as he has gathered us here, to also enter us the abodo piece, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to interest the highest level on paradise. So we have to aim for the highest level and paradise. And we have to work for the

00:29:43--> 00:29:47

highest level and paradise because you only hit what you aim.

00:29:49--> 00:30:00

If you don't aim at something, then you're not going to hit it. So you have to aim for the highest level and paradise. And generally, if you aim higher, even if you miss a little bit, you'll still be

00:30:00--> 00:30:36

in paradise, so don't just enter as the law for just entry into paradise, even with the lowest No, as for the highest, and then we also we should always seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala and ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bring the Muslims together in peace and mass the Prophet ask Allah subhana wa Taala to send peace upon us. And that's why even after prayer, we remember peace right away. After sin is still far we say Allah salam, O Allah, you are the peace, the source of peace will Minka Salaam in from USPS.

00:30:38--> 00:30:40

And so we mentioned

00:30:41--> 00:30:51

from the very from right after prayer, we are reminded a peace because Islam the word Islam comes from peace. So how can how dare

00:30:52--> 00:30:56

the non Muslims? How dare the enemies of Islam

00:30:58--> 00:31:14

say that Islam is not a peaceful religion. When we are ordered during times of war, to be at peace, even with the animals and the trees, even the animals and the trees feel peace and safe from the Muslims, which is I come alongside with Salon and Irina Mohammed
