Level 111 salatu salam ala rasulillah ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to accept from a soul. Ask him Subhana Allah to forgive us for our shortcomings. And let's begin with this huge event and a huge topic, that of course, Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam is a name we've heard from when we were born, and until now and be evenly left when we die, and when we enter our grave, we're going to be asked, who is our messenger? Who is our Prophet? And this the answer to this question is going to depend on how much you knew of him salam wa alayhi wa sallam in this life. So let me first begin by making it clear that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah is not in need of any one of us at all. Allah

00:00:42--> 00:01:24

subhanho wa Taala is not in need of our defense for our beloved messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at all. Allah is in not in need of that. Allah Zoysia has already defended his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he has already raised the rank of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he's already given him the highest station in the paradise which is known as Allah Sita. So that's all good. Allah Zoysia Let's sit in a cafe Nagar, Mr. Xie, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is sufficient as a protector for the soul of Mosul. Allahu alayhi wa sallam against everyone who insults him and mocks him. And BiDil belittles him in any way, shape, or form. So that let's make

00:01:24--> 00:02:10

that very clear. However, however, we do so in terms of defending in the rissalah lava lamp, and we must do so in order to prove our Eman in LA Sol La Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam in order to prove our belief in him. We do so in order to gain a lot of pleasure and to gain a lot of social acceptance and the loss of Hannah who are to Allah, He declared those who defend but also the muzzle alarm, he will send them as saw a little mini as you saw the Talib Alonzo shall he says, For in Allahu mo there was he buried also on a mini. So when we defend them the V sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And when we do it strongly with strong words, we're doing it so we can attain and earn the title of

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

slowly meaning so that we can be from among the righteous believers. That's why we do that. So once again, when we're defending indivisible Allahu Allahu wa sallam, when we're going to learn about hudl sola mussel, Allahu alayhi wa sallam is when we want to reintroduce the oma to Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, and to teach the entire world about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We know in the back of our minds that this is an act of worship. This is an act of worship. When we do that we're seeking a large reward for every single word we speak in defense of our profits on the lavalley who are selling them. Let's see, first and foremost, that smaller muscle alarm while you

00:02:50--> 00:03:35

are selling is a core element of our faith. I mean, everyone knows even our children know that the tenants of Islam a five on canon Islam, the Pillars of Islam are five. The first of them is a shadow La ilaha illallah wa shadow under Mohammed Al rasulillah. There is no Islam without this testimony, and this testimony is made up of two parts. The first part is that you accept Allah as being the only Lord worthy of worship. And then the second part is to accept Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as being the final messenger and prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala a core element of our Deen meaning if this is rejected and refused your empire, Islam is shun your entire Islam is gone.

00:03:35--> 00:04:19

And not only this, when we speak also about our camel he man which is which are the pillars and the tenants of he man of belief, there are six and one of them is what may not be lagging or malayaka to go to be also Lee that you accept you must accept the loss of Hannah who without his messenger. So this is what we're speaking about. Essentially, when we're going to speak about who sold the muscle Allahu alayhi wa sallam is first. The second thing we find is that and maybe Salalah alayhi wa sallam is actually a gift of a loss of Hannah who are dying to humanity to mankind is a gift. Allah subhanho wa Taala in sort of any remote he says, Look at men Allahu Allah, meaning his birth a fee

00:04:19--> 00:05:00

Masuda min emphysema, la la la soldierly. He described the Marysol Allahu alayhi wa sallam as men, men, when men is a gift that you give a lot so gently singing the eye, indeed, certainly. No doubt about it. Verily, Allah subhanho wa Taala. He's gifted the believers he gifted them, what did he gift them with? He gifted them with money they have he gifted them with children. He gifted them with businesses and certificates they have none of this was relevant. None of this is mentioned then what did he give us with? He gifted us with the greatest gift we'll ever know in our life. And that is the gift that also loss of the love alayhi wa sallam is our leader is

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

Our messenger that will guide us to a loss of Allahu Medina that will guide us to the pleasure of Allah absorption that will guide us to the highest levels of the paradise. That's essentially the role of the soul, the muscle, the llama, leave us alone, and therefore this is why he's a gift lachemann Allahu Allah Mini. If Bharath a fee Masuda mean unforeseen. The moment Allah gifted the believers The moment he sent among them, a profit from them low. And this is what was all the loss of the love Allah He was in love as far as he's a gift of Allah to us, that is going to guide us to the highest levels of the paradise and guide us to a loss of Hannah who died is pleasure. And you

00:05:39--> 00:06:21

know, some have Allah Subhana Allah it is always always good to be a Muslim. Anytime in life at any time in history. It's good to be a Muslim. But the best time to be a Muslim is right now is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent to mankind. That is the best time in history to be a Muslim, that you're a Muslim in the nation of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. You know, there were Muslims in the time of know how Allah is set up. Muslims in the time of Zakaria Elisa Muslims in the time of very Salah is around the time of musala you set up but these are all Muslims, and this is all a good time to be a Muslim. But the best time to be a Muslim is to be a Muslim in

00:06:21--> 00:07:02

the nation of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam because the nation of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the followers of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a special they special to Allah subhanho Medina, as in the vehcile alone while he was sitting them said that we deserve and we will get also the most of Allahu Allah even send them Shiva on the Day of Judgment, his intercession and we will be the first to be held accountable and then to enter the paradise like about the first oma to enter the paradise. This is why Marisa llamada us lm is a gift to us that we must appreciate and be grateful for. Also in recent Allahu Allahu wa sallam Allah, He is such an

00:07:02--> 00:07:27

important question Who is he? Who is he for us? How did the Muslims observe and maybe some alarm Allah usnm let me clarify this even further. And no place better than the poor and explained to us universal alarm while he was in them is first because at the end of the day, the Quran is the word of Allah. This is Allah telling us rudall sola mussel, Allahu alayhi wa sallam is first love so shall he says, and maybe you

00:07:28--> 00:07:43

mean I mean, I'm forcing him as well. You may have ohms Allah, Allah azza wa jal, he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is closer to the believers than they are to each other.

00:07:44--> 00:08:33

Let me repeat this and understand that please understand this. Allah is telling us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, He better be closer to us than we are to each other. He's closer to us than we are to each other. In other words, he is in more entitled to us than we are to our own selves. And this is why in the same as Evan Miss Roby Allahu anhu, he would say, well, as well as you who were who were a boom, boom, the colossal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he's the father of the believers. He's our father, and his wives are our mothers. This is why omoton Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was considered a what? We were considered brothers of each other. Why? Because our father

00:08:33--> 00:09:13

is a former muscle alarm. Why don't you give us a look at our mothers are the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And when we say also the loss of love, while he was in love is our father, meaning our Father in religion, our Father in a Deen otherwise, our biological fathers are known. And our first biological father is known. And that is Adam allihies. No, but in the recent alarm or your cell and being our father, meaning in religion, that means he, he is closer to each and every single one of us than we are to each other. And you have a relationship with your wife, you have a relationship with your husband, you have a relationship with your children, your sons and

00:09:13--> 00:09:52

your daughters, you have a relationship with your parents, and all these are close relationships. But the relationship that is closest to you, is also the loss of love Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and what he means to you that needs to be closer than anything else. And any relationship you ever have in life. And so what does that actually mean? That means that we're supposed to give Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam preference in our life. And we need to pray right prioritize also the muscle alone while he was ill, and before anyone and anything else, whether he wants our well, or he wants our children for his sake, if you want ourselves for his sake, we're supposed to sacrifice it

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

and give it in. And we don't do that for anyone else. Have a verbal assault, the loss of the love of Allah us and them and we do that for the sake of Allah subhanho Medina

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

Look like above. And so then if our knifes if your neffs was to call you to something Mr. Solo muscle alone, SLM had called us to something that goes against what our self wants. We must it's an obligation to answer his call. This is what is meant by an IBO out there bill meaning I mean unfussy him that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is more entitled to us than we are to our own selves. He's entitled to us. He tells us what to do and what not to do. You understand you need to bring this as close as you can in your life. So that the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam must be living in your house. It must be living with you, wherever you are, even in your depth. When you

00:10:46--> 00:11:29

sleep, you're sleeping and you're seeing a girl that also most of the law that you send them taught you. And even in the in the highest form of pleasure in the life of a believer when a believer is having sexual relations with his wife. Even at that moment, you're supposed to remember what the soul of Mosul among them told us of the gland to make. And he's in every aspect of your life Solomon while he was alone, and this is why Allah azza wa jal, he said, we're into boo hoo that all that if you were to obey Him, then surely you will be guided a lot of storage and tight guidance with the obedience of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allahu Akbar, you want guidance, you're seeking

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

guidance in your life, but

00:11:32--> 00:11:38

that's the prescription that's the solution, a B, his commands a lot of soil he says, what are your own

00:11:40--> 00:12:23

hormone, a be the messenger so that perhaps you may attain mercy. And that is the equation if you want mercy in your life if you want but I get in your life if you want a lot open up close doors in your life. If you want all this agony and distress in this discomfort and hardships in your life to be made easy and you're able to manage them because hardship and difficulty will never go from your life. But if you want them to become more manageable and easier for you to deal with, while you're Sol Allah Allah come for more than a day the messenger and follow the messenger and definitely you will earn a loss of power. What the hell is mercy about? This is what it means what a boom. bustle

00:12:23--> 00:13:12

Allahu Allah, He is our father. He's our Father in the beam. You look into the heartbeat of a loved one who that is narrated by enamel bajada Muslim and the highest degree in hiraeth authenticity, highest degree of intensity in a hadith. And Avi salomo, Allah usnm he said, meaning is Illa Allah, Allah be dunya well, as he said, There is not a single believer, except that I am more entitled to him. I am more entitled to him than he is entitled to anyone else. Allahu Akbar. Allah when the reason the love while he was caring? Well, again, we're answering this question, Who is he does? What does he mean to us? And I, I intend in what I'm answering now and the points I'm giving you I'm

00:13:12--> 00:13:52

intending in that. I hope that I'm able to inspire you and motivate you and encourage you that you understand once again hudl solar muscle alarm, why don't you send them emails that you understand the importance of beating him and following him and that you understand how he's entitled to you more than you are to your own self. Take this hobby, for example, Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam and as I said, he, he told us everything. He told us everything about Allah, he told us hope in life, he gave us hope in this life and in the Hereafter. We're lucky we felt most of the love Allah synonyms, teaching, we will not have hope in life. We will not have hope in this life, nor in the

00:13:52--> 00:14:32

hereafter looks upon the law. There are so many believers that go through a lot of calamities, a lot of tests in life, what gives them hope, other than Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam put them other than what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught them otherwise, look, look at the people that don't follow suit Allah, look at the people that have ignored also the Mosul Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Look at the people that have disbelieved in him. How time after time, suicide attacks, depression, anxiety, mental illnesses. I'm not saying that believers are Jani Allah Xhosa doesn't test them with that they may be tested with that. That's definitely an issue. But I'm saying

00:14:32--> 00:14:59

when it happens to people that don't have a religion whatsoever. It's because there's a spiritual void in their life. Something is missing something doesn't make sense. As for the believers, they find their comfort in the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala that were conveyed to us via the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Levy's Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says in a hadith and look at this journey, I want to share this hadith with you

00:15:00--> 00:15:29

So you can understand, does hero's homosassa know about us? Does he really even care about us? I mean, we've we exist 1000s centuries after him. sallallahu alayhi wasallam What did he think about us? Is there any Hadith that refers to us us living in this time right now? Yes, there is. One more here I did that'll put smiles on your face and make you even more engulfed in passion love for solar muscle alone while he was alone.

00:15:30--> 00:15:36

Listen to this hobby from the vessel Allahu alayhi wa sallam one day at an MA Kabbalah. He entered into the cemetery.

00:15:38--> 00:16:17

He entered into the cemetery in Medina, for call. Then he said, which is the dryer that is supposed to be said, when you enter the graveyard. He said a Salam aleykum Delta, meaning, peace be upon you all believers that have now been laid to rest. He said, What in insha Allah who become law Haku. He said, By the will of Allah, we are going to be following you very soon. In other words, it's only a couple more days, a couple more years, a couple more months, we're going to die and we're going to follow you as well to the grave will be buried. As he said that some Allahu alayhi wa sallam and I shed the beginning of the hubby so you can understand what he said next. This is like a bizarre

00:16:17--> 00:16:20

salami standing in the graveyard in the cemetery.

00:16:21--> 00:17:14

And he's remembering death. He's sending his daughter upon the dead. He's asking a lot to bestow His mercy upon them. He's remembering that he knows that he will die. And he remembers his mother's going to come after him. Who are these people that are going to come after me? So at that moment, he said, What did to uncover? When He looked at his companions around the end, he said, I, he said, my companions I'm desiring. I wish that I had seen my brothers. So they said to him our lesson A while back, and we are brothers. And what are you talking about? Are your brothers and the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said, unto most heavy, yo, my companions. Were de la Vina la mia, too bad. My

00:17:14--> 00:17:56

brothers are people that haven't come yet. My brothers are those that will come after me. They will believe in me and they haven't seen me yet. Yeah, and in the basal Allahu alayhi wa sallam remembered us as he was standing in the graveyard. He remembered he said these companions, you're my companions. My true brothers. My real brothers are those that will come after me. They have never seen me. But they believe in me, Allahu Akbar. Why because this is the highest level. This is the highest level of Eman and faith to believe in him if you haven't seen him, some Allahu alayhi wa sallam, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Allah. He my brothers and sisters in Islam. I think we should be

00:17:56--> 00:18:17

embarrassed. Look at the love you had for us. Look at the eagerness you have to meet us. And you still have Muslims that don't observe the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they don't see the great importance of the sutra of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and then you have non Muslims far worse than that insulting lasala masala

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

and mocking him some Allahu Allahu Allah. And he some Allahu Allah He was elemis eager to meet those, and he loves those that are going to come after him. That is you and I his oma, that still haven't seen him yet. They will believe in Him, Allahu Akbar. And you know, at this very moment, all of us will lie he all of us and I don't have doubt in true believers, all of us wish to see also a loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam in our dream, how many of us wish to see him in our dream, yet when he was standing with his companions, he's telling them I wish I saw them in real life. He's not wishing to see us in his dream. He was wishing to see us in real life, and be in nilay hidayatullah

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

This meeting is going to happen one day, it's just a matter of us dying, and then being resurrected. And the meeting with us all the loss on the Lahore alayhi wa sallam is going to be at the hope at the hole in where and where we're going to come and drink that that water that is in unhealed love about that's where the meeting before so the Muslim love Allah, Allah will happen. That's why nobody's gonna sell him You said these companions during his life to have a little Coney Island hope. He said Be patient hold firm on God and be steadfast until we meet at an help at unhealed, which is a grand event of the events of the day of judgment. So Panama Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa

00:19:43--> 00:20:00

sallam in an authentic hadith narrated by Abu Dhabi Allahu anhu, and found inside Muslim. He also in this hobby interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam discussed who from among these nation. Yanni was a sign of us having

00:20:00--> 00:20:48

Love follows all the muscle A lot of us what's the sign of us having true love for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Listen to this hadith and the Beast Allahu Allahu wa sallam he said in them in a shed do Mati ban Li. Nan Sunni una de de Yeah, what do I how do I lower any B? Li Hua, Mei li la C'mon vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam he said, from among my nation, those who love me the most. This is a challenge to all of us. And maybe some Allahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us from among us all, who are the ones that are going to love him the most. He said, they are people that come after me. They wish to see me even if it costs them their family and their wealth. Like what do
