Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Allah Allah He was sabe. Germaine, my brothers and sisters in Islam. We are sitting only metres away from the grave of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of course is where his body is. And the body of the prophet is not eaten by the Earth. So physically as a body, He is still there, some Allahu alayhi wa sallam, but my brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:00:29--> 00:01:09

being close physically to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam alone is not a virtue. And he the moon fu cone were around him. The disbelievers of Polish were around him at times, that's not a virtue. The real virtues is how close a person is to the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam how close a person is to the practices and to the teachings of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is the true closeness that each and every single one of us must work towards. So now how much of the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is in your life? When you wake up, for example, Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam when he used to wake up as in the authentic

00:01:09--> 00:01:51

hadith? Em, sir No man, and i na Hibiya he used to wipe away the sleep with his hand so he'd wake up, and he'd do this and he'd wipe away sleep. Now do you do this because Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did this. Then when he woke up, he used to use a syllabic, a seaway when he first woke up. This is a sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If you don't have the best form of a silk which is from the tree of olarak, then the next best thing is to use a toothbrush that could work as a see work and to use it with the intention of emulating the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how much of his Sunday is alive in the way you dress in the way you

00:01:51--> 00:02:33

eat. Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam would say Bismillah before he ate, he would eat with three fingers, then in a bizarre Sydenham would eat only up to a third full. And then he would say and humbly let him let the harmony have a biome after he eats. These are all Sudan. Where are they in your life? The more you have of this, the closer indeed you answer the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this was the life of the companions. Each and every single one of them would try to copy in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam and follow in his teachings intensely. At the normal lobby Allahu Anhu. He was known for the swans. They were on a journey. And the Sahaba alongside with

00:02:33--> 00:03:10

Russia had military, Bahama Hola. He was with the normal he narrates this. He says, as we were on our journey, abnormal all of a sudden he did this. He moved his head around something. So Bucha had asked him he said to me, what did you do? He said to him, I remember that we took this journey within the V sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he did this. There was a tree there at the time of the messenger. So the messengers I said have moved his head because there was a tree. Now he's later when Omar Omar took the same journey, the tree wasn't there. But he still did this because there is some Allahu alayhi wa salam did that, at that time. Subhanallah I will look at what the Allahu Anhu

00:03:10--> 00:03:52

he says, I will never leave anything in the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam taught us and practiced because I feel that if I was to leave a single practice, that I may become misguided. This is all over Quran Allah Who am whose word, remember Radi Allahu Anhu when he was at Apollo, and you know, the the Sunnah, what the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did is that the first three laps around the Kaaba, he would joke them. It's called a Rahman in Arabic. He was joking. So Omar probably Allahu Anhu. When he arrived to Metka he said, Melina Well, Rahman, why are we going to joke we only jogged when we're with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because it was a show

00:03:52--> 00:04:35

of, of our bravery and courage in front of the disbelievers. Now that the believers have all been destroyed, and Maccha is now for Islam. At the heat has been reinstated. We don't need to joke. So then Ahmed will be Allahu Allah who changed his opinion. And he said, This is something the messenger did, and I will not leave it. And so even until this day, the first three laps of anyone who goes to Mecca to do a ombre Opal F is to joke the first three this is sunAt the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have a normal lovely Allahu Anhu he used to touch the two pillars of the cabin, which is a look nearly what has gotten us with and when he was asked, he used to say, I saw Nabi

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did this so I do this as a normal as well probably Allah who I'm used to die the Sephora like a yellowish color he used to die either he's below his clothing. And when he was asked, Why do you do this? You said I saw Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doing this so I do this, again of a normal old the Allahu Anhu. He used to wear analysis dia which is sandal

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

Made of either D or cow skin. He used to wear it. This was his footwear. And when he was asked why do you wear this? He would say I saw a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doing this, so I did this. So my brothers and sisters in Islam the real question is he, how many things do you do in your life? That if you were asked about or your family asked you about it, your children asked you about it, your friends asked you or even if you asked yourself, who can honestly see, I do such and such because it may be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did it? I leave the answer for you to think about and to work towards doing things in your life, because in the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam did them

00:05:44--> 00:06:17

even cultural and habitual matters that he would do also a person if he did them with the intention of doing what Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam did there is reward such as lengthening the hair or wearing a turban and then he saw a cell and never recommended this specifically. And so there's no reward in doing that. But if a person did it because in the resource Unlimited, there is reward in it for we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to allow us to imitate and the reason I said let me now live for so long was the novella kind of you know, Hamlet early he'll make
