00:01:20--> 00:01:28

All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa taala. We praise Him. We seek His help and we ask His forgiveness.

00:01:30--> 00:01:51

We praise and thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for once again allowing us all to be gathered here today to listen to the chutzpah of Juma. I ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to bless each and every one of us. And I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to gather us, like we are gathered here but in general for the dose I mean,

00:01:54--> 00:01:55

during the Battle of OSHA,

00:01:57--> 00:02:05

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ordered 50 Sahabas to be the arches on the hill.

00:02:07--> 00:02:13

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them do not move from your position.

00:02:14--> 00:02:25

Even if you see birds, eating from our flesh, you know, if we die, do not move until you are ordered to move.

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

And we know when the battle was taking place.

00:02:30--> 00:03:07

And the Muslims were gaining victory. There were a lot of spoils of war. Now the swords the shields that the non Muslims left behind because they were retreating. And the archers on the hill, many of them they saw Muslims picking up the shields, the swords, all of the beauty of war. And they said we're part of the war as well. We are a part of it. So we should go and get our share. And one of the Sahaba he said, No, the Prophet ordered us not to move. We need to be here until he orders us to move.

00:03:08--> 00:03:42

And then the others they said yeah, but we've won. We've gained victory, we need to get our share. And it says approximately 40 of them left. There were only 10 left on the hill. And we know that that was the reason of the defeat of the Muslims. Because call it even Waleed at that time being a non Muslim. He took his flank of the army around the hill, and they sandwich the Muslims, the Muslims became in the middle, they will have to look forward and look behind and the Muslims were defeated.

00:03:43--> 00:04:15

The reason why I meant mentioning or starting the football off with this story is to show us is to understand that if we don't have our priorities, right, if we don't have the love of the Prophet, the love of Allah, the love of his sunnah, if we don't follow the orders of Allah, the orders of the Prophet SAW Salem, we will be defeated. And, and the way we're going to be defeated is not only in this world, but we are going to be defeating the afro.

00:04:16--> 00:04:30

We may not have no share of the afro of Jannah. If we do not follow the orders of Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now this week, we were talking about resembling others.

00:04:31--> 00:05:00

And there is a Hadith that we all studied Manta Chabahar be coalmine for whom in whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said whoever resembles others is from among them. And what is happening today, and it's been happening for many years now is we don't have our priorities right? We don't understand the importance of resembling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And what's happening

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

is that we are starting to resemble others, we are looking for success, or victory or happiness in resembling or following others. Besides, the Prophet SAW Salem, besides the good Muslims, and we started to believe that this is happiness, that this is success. And the answer to that is very simple. No it's not. Success only lies in US following the way of Allah to Allah.

00:05:30--> 00:05:36

And it will be shown to us by the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam through his sunnah.

00:05:37--> 00:06:27

So, what we need to focus on to change this is our heart, the love that we have the connection that we have, we need to fix our heart. So we need to focus on that heart. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in the Hadith in Nuffield Jessa de motiva for either Solahart Salah hell Jessa Kulu why either first, that first Adele Jessa Dooku look, Allah one, he will Calvo, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, in the body, there is a morsel of flesh. If that flesh is good, then the rest of the body will be good. But if that flesh is corrupted, then the rest of the body will be corrupted. And then he said, and that is the heart. So we need to focus on the heart.

00:06:27--> 00:06:37

We need to train our heart, who should we love more? And the first answer if I ask any of us this question, Who is the one

00:06:39--> 00:07:29

that you love the most? And that is Allah subhanho wa taala. We all answer this. If I ask any one of you do you love Allah everyone will say yes, I love Allah. But Allah Allah Allah in the Quran tells us that if you love Allah, if you love me, then there's something you need to do. He says, All In Kuntum to a boon Allah flutterby Rooney you be welcome Allah while fear Allah Como Zoo bacame wala Hua foto Rahim. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, All say O Messenger of Allah, tell the people in quantum to a boon Allah, if you love Allah photogravure o ne then follow me many follow the Prophet SAW Salem follow his sunnah. And if you do that, you'll be able qumola That's how you gain the love

00:07:29--> 00:07:55

of Allah. Allah Allah Allah says, follow the Prophet SAW Salem and I will love you and not only love you, while fear Allah comes when overcome, and he will forgive you your sins. Wala hookah. Fouda Rahim. Allah Allah is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful. So the first thing that we need to focus on in our hearts is to connect with Allah is to bring that love of Allah. That's number one.

00:07:56--> 00:08:40

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was once walking with his companions. And they there were some people of war, the captains of people of war. And one of them there was a, there was a there was a woman, and she had a young child with her. Now she lost her child. She couldn't find her child, and she was running around frantically looking for her child. Now, I want you to imagine a mother's love that you all know your mother's your mother and their love towards you. They love you, they'll do anything for you. The mother's love is even higher than the Father's love at times. You will notice Subhanallah this mother when she found her child, she picked up a child and she embraced

00:08:40--> 00:08:43

him. She would want to let her go Let the child go.

00:08:44--> 00:08:49

Upon seeing this that's just about to fall just be very careful. One of the teachers can help out.

00:08:51--> 00:09:03

Upon seeing this, the professor Allahu alayhi wa sallam asked his companions Do you think this mother can ever throw her child into a pit of fire?

00:09:04--> 00:09:31

Now once you understand the question, Do you think any mother can pick up a child and throw her child in a pit of fire? Answer is no of course not. Mother loves a child. The promises Salam said Allah to Allah loves us more than that mother to her child. Allah Allah loves us so much. So if we follow the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim Allah's love is so high that's why he is called Alpha dude.

00:09:32--> 00:09:38

Allah subhanahu wa taala has many names a love of food, or a man allow food.

00:09:40--> 00:09:55

And will dude is one of the highest forms of love. And Allah Tala has that towards us. So we need to understand the love of Allah, connect with Allah because our return is to Allah. We're going to go back to Allah.

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

So bring that love in sha Allah of Allah subhanahu wa

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

Allah in our hearts. The second priority is the profits that Allahu alayhi wa sallam to bring the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in our hearts. Have we seen him? No, we have not seen him.

00:10:15--> 00:11:02

But we know his life. We've learned about him. We know how much sacrifices he's done for us. Our job is to learn about the Prophet. Our job is to bring that love of the Prophet to us. One of the ways that you start loving someone could be a friend, it could be anyone else a relative, is when you see that that person does things for you. Right? They do this because they love you. When they do that. It brings more help but it brings love in your heart. Wow, this person did this for me. That's amazing. I can't believe it. That's beautiful. And you start feeling good for that person happiness. And you would then do things for that person. Because of that and have that that love that

00:11:02--> 00:11:03

connection that you've got.

00:11:04--> 00:11:06

The prophets of Allah who Allah himself did not see us.

00:11:07--> 00:11:25

But yet His love towards us was great, was huge. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked us to love Him. To love the Prophet SAW Selim. Once almoradi Allah Juan. He was speaking to the Prophet SAW Selim and said Yasuda Allah,

00:11:26--> 00:11:31

I love you more than anything in the world, except for myself.

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

And the Prophet SAW Selim, he said, No, you need to love me even more than yourself.

00:11:37--> 00:12:20

The later on Omar Abdullah thought about it that's true. I actually sacrifice I would sacrifice my life for the prophesy Salah came back to the prophecy understood Allah. I love you more than anything else in this world. Even myself, I love you more. And the Prophet has said and said, Alana Omar, now Omar, you've twisted, you've tasted the sweetness of faith. This is love, real love. And we know so many Sahaba is what they've done for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a classic story and you've know this Abu Bakar of your loved one, the best friend of the Prophet SAW Selim. And we know the story of the Hijra. So many things that he's done. He put his life on the line to be

00:12:20--> 00:12:58

with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the Hegira. Remember, they were out to kill the Prophet. So Abu Bakr put his head on the line to save the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, in the case of Sol when they were they're the things that Abu Bakr did to save the Prophet I love that love that he had, that even when Abu Bakr was sitting down and the Prophet was sleeping on his lap, a scorpion or an insect bit or stung Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah and he was so much in pain, but he did not want to wake the Prophet sauce alone. That's how much love he had. He didn't want to wake him.

00:13:00--> 00:13:43

Right so much so that he became theory because of the pain. And the Prophet woke up because the tea dropped fell on the Prophet SAW Salem and he woke up what's the matter? And Abu Bakr say Rasulullah I mean a lot of pain. But he did not want to wake up the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that's love. The question is where is our love? The prophets of Salaam? How can we show our love? He's not alive anymore. He's passed away. So the way we show our love is by following his sunnah by following his sunnah, and if you want to know how much the Prophet sacrifice for us, what he's done for us, the DUA he has made for us, we just have to open up the ahaadeeth once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:13:43--> 00:13:49

sallam came home, and he shadow the Allahu anha. So the prophets of salaam was in a happy mood.

00:13:50--> 00:13:56

And Aisha took advantage of this, so I shall be in the wife. So she sat down and laid on the Prophet SAW Salem.

00:13:58--> 00:14:04

And she said to the Prophet Yara surah Allah make a special dua for me. Make a nice dua for me.

00:14:05--> 00:14:16

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made a DUA, he said, Allah Who mo philia Isha Mata cardamom in them, we have Amata Asad ma Assad, lux, Rama, Alana.

00:14:17--> 00:14:33

He said, Oh Allah, forgive Aisha Radi Allahu anha all of the sins she committed in the past, and all the sins that she will commit in the future, all the sins that she has committed in secret, and all her sins that she has committed in the open.

00:14:34--> 00:15:00

And the Aisha got so happy, she had a huge smile on her face. And she even called move to the Prophet SAW Salem. And the Prophet SAW Selim said to her, yeah, Aisha it seems like my dua has made you happy. And she said, Of course you are also Allah special dua, the prophets of Allah, Allah Salam, he said, By Allah, I make this dua every day in my prayer for my entire ummah. He makes his dua for me

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

You That's how much he loves us. On his deathbed. When he was dying. The Sahaba came in to meet him. And he said, I wish I could see my brothers, my brothers and sisters. I wish I could see them. And one of the companions he said Jada Sula, aren't we your brothers?

00:15:20--> 00:16:02

The prophets of Allah wa sallam said unto us, however, you are my companions, my brothers and sisters are those who will come after me. They have not seen me yet they follow me. I wish I could see them. And on the Day of Judgment, he will, he will see us and He will call us to his group, he will call us towards himself. Again, the question is, do we want to be with him? Yes. Or do we want to be with those celebrities and people that we see online that we want to be like, That's the priority that we need to focus on will continue in Charlotte Aquila, only Heather was thrown out the money we're looking for stone Pharaoh in the Hall of Fame.

00:16:12--> 00:16:19

In Al hamdu lillah, WA Salatu was Salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman Kathira about

00:16:21--> 00:16:27

the third priority that we should have in terms of our love is towards the good Muslims.

00:16:29--> 00:16:54

Our Muslim brothers and sisters, and that includes everyone, your parents, your relatives, your brothers and sisters, all Muslims, we need to bring this love, unfortunately, and we know scenarios and issues that has happened even this week, and last week, where people have been bullying each other gossiping about one another. Talking about each other bullying them by calling them nicknames.

00:16:55--> 00:17:00

Online gossip that's happening, putting each other down.

00:17:01--> 00:17:02

And this is not love.

00:17:04--> 00:17:07

This is not love at all. In one ayah

00:17:08--> 00:17:14

Allah subhanahu wa Tada in Surah Fujairah. He tells us bid solicitation for Su kabasele Iman

00:17:16--> 00:17:40

for Muslim YouTube for hola como Gallimore this entire ayah he talks about bullying others teasing others mocking others calling each other by evil nicknames. In this particular point, he said, How evil is it? When you call someone something so bad when that person has Iman, when that person has faith. And just to give you an example.

00:17:42--> 00:17:46

Even though you may have rivalry with your sibling sometimes.

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

But if someone were to harm your brother or your sister,

00:17:52--> 00:18:00

you would stand up and you would get so upset. How could you do this to my brother? How could you do to my sister because you've got this love?

00:18:01--> 00:18:07

Allah to Allah tells us indirectly here. How could you tease my servant?

00:18:08--> 00:18:14

He belongs to me. She belongs to me. How dare you bully my servants?

00:18:15--> 00:18:34

Imagine Allah Tala telling us this. How dangerous are we going to be at that time? So think about these moments, love of each other. And I'll end it off with the story of true love amongst the Companions, unmatched we call it can never match it. In the Battle of Yarmouk. This battle was against the Romans.

00:18:35--> 00:18:37

There was a man by the name of crema,

00:18:38--> 00:19:18

it Kremerata Allah when he might be in Abuja, even at gehele. He used to be the worst staunch enemy of Islam. But when he became a Muslim, after the conquest of Makkah, he became a Muslim. And he wanted to serve Islam. He loves the Prophet SAW Selim, he loved the Muslims. And in this particular battle is fought this battle was very fierce. There were three Sahabas it crema selama, even Hadith, even Haitian and Yash, there will obviously many Sahabas but these three are the stories about these three companions. The battle was so fierce that they were underground, they were dying,

00:19:20--> 00:19:27

and the cousin of selama, he noticed that those three were lying down. So he took water

00:19:28--> 00:19:33

and he went to his cousin Salama, who was on the ground, and wanted to give him some water to drink.

00:19:35--> 00:19:50

Now Salama needed water to survive, but he looked to his side and there was a crema on the ground. It crema was also dying. So he said to his cousin, don't worry about me. I'm okay. Give it to a creamer. He needs more than I do.

00:19:51--> 00:20:00

So he went to eat creamer and edema. As he was about to drink, he heard some noise beside him. He looked beside him and there was a Yash Rhodiola

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

One and he was dying. And then he said to the cousin he said, go to a year she needs the water more than I do. He went to a Yash and by the time he reached a Yash Raj passed away.

00:20:13--> 00:20:23

So he thought, Okay, let me go back to the crema. He went to a crema, it came out of the Allah one passed away. Then he thought, Okay, let me go back to my cousin Salama, when he went to his cousin, Salama, his cousin, Salama passed away.

00:20:25--> 00:20:31

They all needed water. But guess what? They were thinking about their brother. That's true love.

00:20:32--> 00:20:33

Do we have that amongst each other?

00:20:34--> 00:20:35

Probably not.

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

Would we sacrifice ourselves for our brother? Probably not.

00:20:41--> 00:21:03

But the level of love should be very high. We can't match this. This is very high level. But we can reach there. Get close to it. Though we will look out for one another. We will make sure everyone is safe. We will help each other in terms of need. This is true love. And as Muslims we need to bring this back. Do not follow the people you see online. They're not going to help you.

00:21:04--> 00:21:45

But love Allah. The Prophet SAW Salem and your fellow Muslims and you will see the unity and you will see that all of us will be together in Jannah and that's what we want Insha Allah we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to bring true love back in our hearts abet Allah in Allahu wa melodica who you saloon Allah Nebby Yeah, you have Lavina Hammond was solo Allah He was celibate a slaver Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad wa ala Ali Muhammad Come on.
