00:00:07--> 00:00:59

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, it was narrated and Sahil Bukhari and Sahih Muslim from the hadith of Abdullah bin Umar, radi Allahu anhu Ma, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was on the member. And he had taken and made a ring out of gold. And this was before obviously, that goal was made out of them upon the men of this oma. He had made a ring from gold, and had a stone on it, and he would turn the stone on the inside, he went upside down la Salatu was Salam. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did this, all of the companions as well, they went out, and they made rings out of gold with stones on them, and they were the stones inside, following what

00:00:59--> 00:01:27

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to do. As he said on the member that day, he said that I had taken this ring of gold, with a stone on it, and I wore the stone to the inside. And then he took it off, and he sent out to a salon, and he threw it. And he said, Well, he I will never wear it again. So he did this solo while he was selling them. All of the companions took off their rings, and they threw their rings as well.

00:01:29--> 00:01:37

One time, when the prophets that Allahu Allah He was setting them was leading the prayer. And this hadith

00:01:38--> 00:02:22

came from the hadith of I will say that Henry wrote the Allah who and it was narrated in as soon as I will download Rahim Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was leading the prayer. And he was praying in his shoes, and the Sahaba were praying in their shoes. One of the Forgotten as soon as that we don't implement today, that they prayed in their shoes. And as he was praying it salatu wa sallam, he took off his shoes and he put them on the left side. So when he took off his shoes in the prayer, also, all of the Sahaba in the prayer took off their shoes as well. After the Salah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked them, Why did you take off your shoes

00:02:22--> 00:02:49

during the prayer? They said, verily we saw you take off your shoes. So we did the same thing and we took off our shoes. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that jabril came to me in the prayer and told me that there was impurity on the bottom of my shoes. Therefore I took them off. And then he said at least Salatu was Salam. If one of you comes to pray, and he's going to pray in his shoes, then let him look on the bottom of the shoes to make sure there's no impurities on them.

00:02:50--> 00:03:10

And the Hadees of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he told us le Salatu was Salam. Let them know email law massages the law. Do not forbid the female slaves from coming to the massage of a law decided to sell Buhari and one of the narrations of the Hadeeth incident in reimagine.

00:03:12--> 00:03:34

Abdullah Omar who narrated this hadith one of his sons said, Well, we will forbid them from coming to the mesquite Abdullah bin Omar. radi Allahu anhu. Omar, he became very, very angry. He said, I told you what sort of law so a lot of it he was setting them said, Don't forbid them. And you say, we're going to forbid them

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

by the brothers and sisters.

00:03:39--> 00:03:45

And these three stories. We see how the Sahaba radi Allahu anhu

00:03:47--> 00:04:06

followed the student of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam to the tee. They did exactly what he did la salatu wa sallam, he made a ring out of gold and put the stone on the inside. They did the same thing as the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, in the salaat. He took off his shoes, they took off their shoes, and they became very angry.

00:04:07--> 00:04:19

Even their own children, if they went against the command of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If they went against the student of Rasulullah sallallahu it he would send them they will become enraged.

00:04:21--> 00:04:32

Even in some of the narrations with some of the Sahaba told their own children will lie. I'll never speak to you again. not speaking to his own children because they went against the tsunami of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:04:33--> 00:04:37

Why is this? Why did the Sahaba act in this way?

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

Is it just because they know the importance of

00:04:45--> 00:04:47

following the symbol of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:04:49--> 00:05:00

Of course, this is one of the main reasons is that they know how important it is it's a must for a Muslim if he is going to be successful, that he follows the suit Never assume de la Sol Allahu Allah. He was saying

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

But also the Sahaba rhodiola, who and whom they know the outcome.

00:05:07--> 00:05:34

Then the teejet of the one who follows the Sunnah and implements the command of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the one who refuses to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he made this crystal clear and the Hadith in Bukhari. The Hadith was narrated by Abu Dhabi, Allah and the Prophet sallallahu. Either he was selling was sitting with the companions, and he told them,

00:05:35--> 00:05:52

Cornel rometty you your Coronel Jenna elimine Abba kulu Mati yet Hola, Jana in lemon Abba, all of my nation will enter into the agenda except for the one who refuses

00:05:55--> 00:05:56

your thinking to yourself

00:05:58--> 00:06:19

the same thing that the Sahaba told the Allahu I don't thought to themselves here in this hadith right away. They said, what what mine Yeah, by Yellowstone Allah who would refuse to enter into the agenda? Is he crazy? Imagine knowing what's wrong with who? Who would refuse to enter into the agenda. Does it make sense how somebody would refuse to enter into the agenda. But he made it clear at least salatu wa sallam, he said men are far Ani

00:06:21--> 00:06:24

dakoda agenda. Women are saw any thought

00:06:25--> 00:06:46

that whoever obeys me, he will enter into the agenda. And whoever disobeys me, he will enter into the Hellfire us crystal clear message. One plus one equals 123 it's two it's clear. It's It's It's simple. Tell us if you obey the province of the law while he was setting them.

00:06:47--> 00:07:00

You enter into the agenda. you disobey Him you go to the Hellfire and that's why the Sahaba radi Allahu anhu they strove to implement anything and everything from the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:07:02--> 00:07:25

the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu they strove to implement and act upon the sooner Beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in their life, because they knew that following the command of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and obeying him at least Salatu was Salam was not something optional for the true believer.

00:07:27--> 00:08:08

Allah subhanho wa Taala made this clear to us in the Quran in surah, Allah Azza wa mcenany meaning well I mean at in either cabo la hora pseudo Amman and your Quran oh here are two main m&e him what may ya see la hora, Sula, hufa Bella Bella Bella Medina, that it's not up to a believing male or believing female. If the Prophet has decided something about he's the creator matter he's that he's he's made a ruling it salatu wa sallam that they have the option in their house, there's no option now, the purpose of selling he commanded us to do something, there's no option allow me to very clear to us in the Quran.

00:08:10--> 00:08:24

There's no option for unit and then the ending of the ayah. Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Well, maybe I'll see let her wanna Sula who have been labeled la Marina that whoever this obeys Allah and His messenger that he has clearly gone astray.

00:08:26--> 00:08:43

The Sahaba wrote the Allahu anhu when they strove to act upon the command, and to obey the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This was because they knew this is the only way to be a true believer.

00:08:45--> 00:08:49

Alyssa panna wattana told us in sort of the Nisa

00:08:51--> 00:08:58

fell a lot bigger there You mean owner and this is how it starts is very, very strong.

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

Very strong. Allah subhanho wa Taala makes the oath for now or a bit low, you know, they do not believe

00:09:10--> 00:09:18

had until that the only way you're going to be a believer is had to until you do what's about to be said in this ayah.

00:09:19--> 00:09:38

And it's important all of us reflect on this reflect on our own situation as we come. And we give the hope by and we give this reminder to ourselves. It's not just to give my roommates to come with information. Here's some ayat, here's some howdy Bismillah Let's pray. Let's go. It's for us to reflect on our own situation.

00:09:39--> 00:09:47

Because we're not going to be believers until we do these things mentioned here in this ayah and sort of denisa verse 65 three thinks,

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

Oh Allah, the first thing. Have you have the mocha female shadowbane Oh, and so they make you all Mohammed the judge concerning the affairs

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

They different. We have a difference of opinion and something in the deen. Where do we go? We go to the student of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Sahaba went to him directly. We go to his authentic student la salatu salam that's the first thing.

00:10:14--> 00:10:30

Hector you have chemo coffee Masha shadowbane home from Allah you do pm foresee him Hara genma COVID. And then they do not find anything in their hearts from the ruling you passed is the second thing.

00:10:32--> 00:11:14

So first we go to the subnet. And then if there's something that goes against what's in our hearts, what we want it or what we thought was correct. We don't find anything in our hearts against it. And that brings us to the third thing, why you suddenly more Taslima and they submit and surrender a complete submission to your sooner. This is the only way that we can be believers. And the Sahaba Well, the Allahu anhu they understood this. And that's why Abdullah bin Omar wrote the Allahu anhu when he had these issues with his sons, the sunset will forbid them, he said, became very angry. Another one, he said, I will never speak to you again. And another story because they knew that

00:11:14--> 00:11:24

danger of turning away from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam it was narrating the Hadith, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, let me know a hydro

00:11:26--> 00:11:52

turbine the magic to be that none of you truly believes until his desires are in what in accordance to that which I have brought. And in accordance to this sunette can ply it to what is in the pseudonym, this Heidi. Some of the scholars say it's vital, so it's not authentic. But Shechem bas Rahim Allah tala. He said, even though some of the scholars said it's weak, the meaning of it is correct. And some scholars said it was authentic Heidi.

00:11:53--> 00:12:02

But the meaning is correct, that you cannot be a true believer until your desires are compliant with the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:12:03--> 00:12:21

The Sahaba of the Allahu anhu when they strove to obey the messengers of the law, while he was selling and follow his sooner they understood that obeying the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It is obeying a law subpoena Watada

00:12:22--> 00:13:07

may Altera soul power, our power law that whoever obeys the messenger that he has obeyed the law is what a law tells us. Whoever is a bait the messenger, then here's obey the law, the Sahaba they understood that the ultimate source of guidance was in following the command of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam know bang Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah tells us when to Pharaoh who do that if you obey Him, you will be guided. People see how can we be guided? What did we want to return to Allah subhana wa Tada. We want to make Toba. We want to be better Muslims. How do we do it? Follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu ideas. Is that clear? Allow me to clear,

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

very sure I went to clear Oh, that they do that if you obey Him, He will be guided. It's clear.

00:13:14--> 00:13:17

And the Sahaba they understood

00:13:18--> 00:14:00

the danger of opposing the command of Rasulullah sallallahu it he was sending them the danger of disobedience to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah made this clear and sort of then he said, Well, may you show up at the Rasulullah I mean by the matter biella houda Wyatt terbit virus lbnl mumineen Noel Lee Mata Well, honestly, he jahannam was masirah that whoever opposes the messenger, after guidance has become clear to him. And pay attention to this My dear brothers. he opposes the messenger. Many of us tell him that that's not me. I don't oppose the messenger.

00:14:01--> 00:14:42

But look at the eye after guidance has become clear to him. How many times have we been reminded? Have we been advised? See, okay, this is the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu is mfe. And we disobey, we don't we refuse to follow it, are we from the ones who fall into this iron? What is the outcome of these who fall into this ayah and they follow other than the ways of the believer, they oppose the messenger they follow other the ways that the believer, Allah subhana wa tada said, that we will give him what he has earned, and he will be driven into the hell and what an evil destination. This is the outcome of those who disobeyed the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this is why the

00:14:42--> 00:14:50

Sahaba work so hard to obey and to follow the command of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam by the brothers in Islam

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

when the Sahaba gave us these beautiful examples of striving to act upon

00:15:00--> 00:15:30

Sooner Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even things one time. When they came in, they sat under the tree and said, Why do you sit here? He said, because I saw Rasulullah sallallahu I'm sitting this place, but to that extent, they went to every single thing that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did. And that was because they truly loved the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and what is true love? How do we know if we truly love the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam let's hold ourselves today to account because all of us claim

00:15:32--> 00:15:44

and some people want to celebrate and say we love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and maybe celebrate in ways that go against the tsunami de la sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So how can we determine if we truly love him at least Salatu was Salam.

00:15:45--> 00:16:21

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us in the hadith of anicet Medical of the low and which was narrating Sahil Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, let me know I had to come had akuna Hubba la he Meanwhile he Well, what did he when they said Jemaine none of you truly believes until I am in the province of Salem is more beloved to him, then and think about who are the most beloved people to you in this life right now, before I mentioned our sister Heidi, who do you love the most in this life? Right? were you gonna say, my parents, my children are at the top of everybody's list.

00:16:22--> 00:16:34

The promises enemy says they love you truly believe until I become more beloved to him, then his children, then his parents, and all of mankind.

00:16:37--> 00:16:45

Do we love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, more than our parents more than our children more than everything and anyone in this world?

00:16:46--> 00:16:51

And how do you know that you truly love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where does it show up?

00:16:53--> 00:17:01

It shows up in your actions not on the tongue because yeah, we lovers to the law system. sallallahu Mashallah. Do you follow Him?

00:17:03--> 00:17:34

Do you read his Sierra? Do you learn his sooner deployment is sooner or is it just something you say on your tongue? Allah subhana wa Tada. made it clear to us in sort of an AMA. If you truly love a law, and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what do you have to do? Boolean quantum to a Buddha law but be Rooney Subhan Allah, say if you truly love Allah say oh Mohammed, to your followers to the oma. If you truly love a law, but who only Follow me

00:17:36--> 00:17:45

Follow me call us. That's it. It has to be an actions if you truly love us. So the law says it's in the actions and what do you get in return? Look at the drama,

00:17:47--> 00:18:39

the mercy and the look for the kindness of Allah subhana wa tada for us. That if we implement the command, and we follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam What are we getting returned, but who only follow me? You're welcome on law. While filicudi Nobuko, Allah will love you and He will forgive you of your sense. May Allah subhana wa tada make us all from the true followers of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, from those who fill their hearts with the love of Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasallam and that this love shows up in their actions, something that we see in all of the aspects of our life as we go home today. My dear brothers and sisters, all of us

00:18:39--> 00:18:50

need to reflect on this. Do we truly love Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasallam do we strive to follow his command? Something might be something small.

00:18:52--> 00:18:55

One time we saw a brother walking with one shoe,

00:18:56--> 00:19:29

so no big deal. He said the other shoe is far away but I walk with one shoe. So Jackie, this is forbidden in the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, it's not a big deal. The Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said don't walk into one shoe, the shape one walks into one shoe, something you might look at as small. But this is true love here. This is true love because I know that will sort of losses lm forbid me from doing that. Even if it's on the other side. I'm gonna take that one shoe and I'll walk over there I'm gonna put two more at the same time, anything like that? Because I want to follow his command. I want to obey Him. We need to go home today and reflect on our lives or our

00:19:29--> 00:19:59

actions. What do we do we wake up in the morning? Do we say the car that he taught us? What do we do we go to bed in the evening? Do we say the car that he taught us? Do we act like him? Kind of hollowcore an his manners without of the Quran? How are manners? How are we when we deal with others? We need to reflect and we need to go and learn his sooner and learn his Sierra Leone salatu salam and implemented ourselves in our households and our children and our families and in shuttles, how we find the Basilica for ourselves.

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

as individuals and as families and as communities and as an oma inshallah, tada
