Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
I want to thank you all for your patience. I know it's been a it's been a fabulous weekend, but it's been a tiring weekend, jam packed have from lectures to entertainment sessions to bazaars and meeting friends and building relationships and seeking advice and just having a great time in a halal way as a Muslim and
and this lecture hasn't been delayed for the reason of it is the best lecture, in fact, is far off the best lecture is not the most important lecture is not for any of these reasons. The only reason, of course, is that this conference has been given the theme of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, MLC a mercy to mankind, and it's been a wonderful journey into his Sierra into his character, we discovered his characteristics, his description, we've seen him as a friend, we've seen him as a leader, we've seen him as a husband, we've seen him as the one who everyone can trust, we see him as the defender, we've been exposed to so many beautiful secrets and wisdoms behind his
statements and his actions.
one thing that we have to understand
is that, with the loss of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam,
we suffered the greatest catastrophe that is possible for all of any religion or any member of the human race.
Because he was a mercy to mankind.
The shame about mankind is most of them didn't recognize him.
Most of the people that have gone by did not accept this message. And most of the people to come will not accept his message.
And this is a very difficult topic, it's a very difficult topic to speak about. And to think about, and to prepare was very difficult for me as well.
And this was emotional for me because I originally
This is one of the very first lectures that I gave as a public lecturer about 15 years ago, and I never gave it a again since then. Because to be honest, I hate
you know, being like this.
And I find it very difficult.
But we have to do it.
We have to do it. Because in the death of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
we have three specific things which rarely happen, or they happen with difficulty. The first is that as a hard hearted people, our hearts are softened, by reflecting upon the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam.
The second reason that we
reflect upon the trial of this specific trial of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
is because it makes the game serious.
We start to reflect upon ourselves actually. And when we do
this game that we play every single day, the one that we call Islam,
the actions that we do for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala when we falter, and then we get back up, but we sacrifice in our lives, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, to maintain the identity of being Muslim, will become weak. But it's when we see the trials of the Beloved of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we realize that people died and not just people died, but good people died, and not just good people that but the best of all the people died, the situation becomes serious. And we feel embarrassed, and we feel ashamed. And so we acts as a reminder,
this is a lecture not full of gems and great wisdoms, and it's just, I just want to just
recount to you the the final days, I just want you to just sit back and just relax and just think about what happened to the Messenger of Allah Lysander because for the third reason, why we do this topic, this catastrophe is something that we soothe our own selves. When we have our own problems. We compare and reflect upon that of the Messenger of Allah, Allah and His masiva and that's why under be sublicensed said that if any of you is afflicted with a difficulty or a hardship, I will Seba failure, Kumasi, better who be then let him then compare his problems.
His difficulty, his trial his calamity, let him then compare it to mine for in the album and massage it because it is the greatest of all catastrophes. It was the loss of the one, the final one who was giving us direct wiring from Allah subhanaw taala direct guidance and light on a daily basis, the one who was protecting the oma. He was protecting this oma. Whilst he was within our ranks, the nation would not be defeated. As Allah says an operand, he will not hold them and punish them, whilst the profits of licensing is still with them.
And he will not punish this nation while they are still making so far.
I would rather rely upon the presence of the professionalism than our collective ability to still make so far.
So when we realize the loss of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we start to reflect more upon our own selves, and how much more we need to do to become the people who are proud and worthy of carrying his message. My brothers and sisters,
foretelling of the last days of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started in the 10th year of the hinterland
Two things which were very common to the prophets of light he was sent them is that gibreel would come to him and he would review the Quran with him once the full Quran.
But in the 10th year of the Hendra g prerelease Salaam, reviewed the Quran twice. Normally the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would make it a calf seclude himself in the masjid for 10 days. But in this year, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam started and stayed for 20 days.
In the few months that came after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam perform the Hajj. He gathered the people, and he gave them his normal hedge chutzpah. But afterwards, we came to know that this was
the final farewell sermon.
In this house by itself, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Take your rights from me, who do anuman asika take these rights and learn them very carefully because the alila altcar combat ami hada maybe I don't see you again.
The next year, this could be the last one.
The companion is now starting to feel worried they're starting to now feel that something is going on.
There's too many clues too many differences and too many things are changing.
Soon after in the Yamato Shrek Allah subhanaw taala revealed the sweet nossal that Janice rawai will fight. And so when the victory comes to you and the way is open for you or profit with who knows reading in law of watch and the people start to enter into this religion in waves,
then get yourself ready. Get yourself ready. At that time had written this this final Hajj, the masses that were there, it was inconceivable from where the prophets lie Selim had been the small number of people that were in Mecca, expelled to Medina, then not allowed to come back in then given this victory which the rest of the companions didn't even consider to be a victory, and then to be then suddenly making Hajj with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we're seeing hundreds and 1000s of people, when they see this surah It is very clear for them that this surah is saying the job is done.
And straight after this surah say now what
I said now is the most knowledgeable of them in the in the issues of the Quran and tafsir.
They said as narrated later, when we heard this surah we recognize that his time was close, that his time was close.
In the monster followed in the beginning of the new year, the 11th year of the Hydra,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and suffer made a visit.
And he made for his friends at orchard who had passed. He then went to Albuquerque
and he made specific job for the people of bulkier tackle farewell. Like he a person who is going away on a journey as their dilemma and the companions later recalled at that time, not everyone was clocking on
and then very soon after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam became ill
when I say Ill I want you to understand that anyone who has
any kind of sickness these days we take it as something so light because of the wondering the miracle of medication, medication which acts as a painkiller medication, which is anti parasitic, bringing the temperature down. At that time, there are no medications to help any
People, pain had to be bad with heat and fever would burn you. People would die of fever,
the inability to control the body temperature.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam came home to a Chateau de la hotel and she had a headache. She was complaining about her pain. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh, If you only knew the pain that I had, If you only knew the pain that I had,
things are moving very quickly, the illness of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, only lasted 13 days.
In these 13 days, the fever and the pain of the province of Lyceum increased so much that he would faint. He would lose consciousness,
he would still be aware of his obligations to his wives, yet while he was at the houses of his wives, who would always give away continue to give an indication, by saying, Who am I with tomorrow? Where am I going again tomorrow? Can you tell me again, who I'm playing with tomorrow, indicating to the wives of the purpose of life and limb, that he doesn't want to be moved around continuously? Please allow me to make a choice to go to one place.
And he did. And he indicated that he wanted to stay in the house of eyeshadow Viola on her.
And in the house of eyeshadow, and her, the entirety of his illness is played out in a number of sources in much detail.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when the FIBA came upon him.
The burning, as he said to us was the Allahumma was the burning in one narration of two men and in another narration, the burning of 10 men.
They were unable to touch him from the heat that was being exuded from his body.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would be doused with water, he would actually be told to sit in water to cool his body temperature down.
The pain will become so much that just like you might have seen how we do in our villages and in our, in our ways, if you've seen people who don't take medication, they would get the cloth and they would put it around their head and tight very, very tight.
This action was something very common to the Arabs at that time. When they were very hungry, they would tie a stone around their waist and they would tight very, very tight for the simple reason that the pain created by the squeezing or the stone or the sharpness is the pain which is sharp, but much less than the original pain, allowing the mind to be taken off the original problem. Just the stop gap for the problem. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam suffering at this time was something that made her say something very interesting. My she said my observation of of the pain and the fever that he went through in his death made me never ever regret the death of any single
friend or foe. Never ever feel joy. Never ever think that it's okay. Because when I see that suffering, just like we say in English, I wouldn't let my worst enemy go through that.
What she saw that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam go through with something indescribable, she was unable to describe it.
We move quickly to
the Wednesday five days before
the 12th of the hedger.
On this Wednesday, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam unconscious in the morning, regained consciousness and told his wife to pour water over his head. First time, second time, third time.
He was then pulled to the masjid that time.
Pulled literally dragged between two men. His feet were being dragged along the floor
as he came into the masjid, the companions who had now started to recognize that this illness was serious. They were now camping in dimensions of the room and even outside our Uthman Abu Bakr, Siddiq, the major companions in these last few days, they decided to leave their families and their food and they just started the campaign and we need to be around we need to understand anything that we can do here Rasulullah the promise of Lyceum said put me to the member, take me to the member
and he went to the member
and he addressed the people
and he started to advise the people
and these advice, the advices that he gave were those which were general in nature. Do not take the graves of the prophets as places of worship.
Make the polytheists leave the Arabian Peninsula the week the defenseless those who are own the slaves look after them Be careful with them. The answer respect them look after them. A Salah a Sala the prayer
Prayer being good whether it be perfect whether it be on time
it was a general hubbub It was a general address but then suddenly the profits of life suddenly he made a statement. He said Allah subhanho wa Taala has offered his slave a slave of his
the choice of remaining in his dunya with all of his delights forever and ever.
luxury and delight forever.
But that slave
chose the Acura
but that slave chose the Acura
Lohan who was sitting there and he said, when he said that we were looking at each other's thinking What does he mean?
Say now bhakra Sadiq suddenly started to cry.
We all looked at it. Why, why is speaking you cry
vaca Siddiq said my mother and my father be ransomed for you Yasuo law. This does not need to happen.
My wealth and my family also be ransom for you Your Rasulullah
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then turns out workers sit there
and then he looked at the people he said if I was to take a highly an intimate close friend, other than Allah subhanaw taala I would have taken a look at acidic as Helene.
He is the one who is most closest to me. He is the one who is most loyal to me. And his door is the one that will remain open when all the rest of the doors of this Masjid are closed.
Said overcapacity continues to cry. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gathered the people to lead them in Salah.
He led them in slots as
soon as the prayer had finished, he returned back to the member.
He then stood and addressed the people yeah, you handed us all people
I am requesting from you all if there is anyone who has anything upon me, then come and take it from me. If there is any money that I owe to anyone, then please take it from me now. If I have hurt anyone, or if I have cursed anyone, or if I have been wronged to anyone, or have oppressed anyone or I ever hit anyone, then take your Recompense. Now, take it from me now. And he repeated this again and again. And again.
The narrations in the books of Hadith and history are many about what happened at this moment in time one of them which is not so strong,
but strong enough to give an indication
narrated in the management of the management zone. So Val hates me he said that one man stood up.
He said, Yeah, Rasulullah I need to take recompense from you in one thing that people turn around.
They looked at this
they recognized him as
LSAT or the Allahu Allah shocked. They were shocked because this is no normal, small fry. This is one of the mighty companions. One of the Senior Companions. Yara sudo. Allah
on the day of better
when you are making the so forth,
you are straightening the lines
and you took your stick to straighten the lines
and you pushed me back
and you hurt my chest.
You pushed me back with your stick and you hurt my chest.
You're Rasulullah I only stand up now because you have asked for it three times.
You're Rasulullah I want to take back what is my heart. The companions were beside themselves. In all of these narrations, you will see regardless of the weakness in Abu Bakr Siddiq stands up armor stands up say now It stands up one by one. We will take it out on me 10 times on me 100 times on the mat any money you wish. Please don't go to the professor Lysa lemma you're doing one by one one by one each time the province of lies lm is saying hey,
to say nalli your position with me is well known you don't need to prove anything to me. Hey, Hassan Hussein. You're okay with me. I know what your position eternity to prove anything to me. This is fine. This is what we need to do. Go and bring that stick. Go and bring my stick.
The stick was brought the companions were
What's going on?
The stick was given to Okasha.
Well kashia came forward to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The purpose of lies lm opened up his shirt and expose his chest
kashia took the stick and he came to the promise of lies Helen and
He threw it to the side.
I think he kissed the chest of the professor.
He kissed the chest of the professor the lies and let me say Dr. Shula, I only stood up because I wanted this to be the final ad between us. I wanted this to be the final thing between us.
Just took my opportunity. Okasha,
kashia, the giant of the companions
who kashia, who's already forgiven his sins because he was at bother
Hamas. Allah already told him do what you want.
I have forgiven you what you want to do anyway. So go ahead and do anything.
Okasha, who stood by the province of lies lm and foot by side so fiercely that he broke his sword into so many pieces, and he still tried to defend the province of lyocell. And he said, Yeah, Rasulullah my sword is broken. The purpose of life sent him gave him a branch, a branch a piece of woods. He said, Take this, he didn't question him once he took that branch, and he used a piece of wood against other people's souls, and from the more edges of a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam this branch turned into a sword,
the sword of Akasha, which the scanners gave a name to around
and he continued to defend the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with that sword in Alberta, and he continued to use it for the sake of the Muslims until he himself was killed. Shaheed at the Battle of a reader who said
this is Akasha
Okasha, juanda mighty people who goes to heaven like BAM like that.
He has a path to heaven that we can only dream of that the companions can only dream of. The purpose of life Sullivan Buhari said 70,000 members of my oma will enter gender without his without as of no questioning, no punishment just green card goes straight through
while the companions are thinking how does one do that? The purpose of life seldom said these are the people who have that perfect so what call in Allah subhanaw taala perfect trust the companions not trying to work it out. How does one get that What does one do how what's the levels required and what actions okay she's like you know you don't think about this. Yeah. Rasulullah
pray to Allah Elia jelibean home, make this jar to Allah. He makes me for one of these 70,002 men whom Yarrow kashia you are from them. You are from them.
He's already been given it. And as I said to you, the rest of the companions can only dream because when another one stood up, he said he had a tsunami as well. Hmm.
Sorry about that before he my friend.
And he has
to cut sabaki Okasha, he has been he has got there before all of us.
The study of the companions and their reactions and their statements at this time is something worldwide, which is a lesson in itself so many lessons.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam returned back
as he went back home,
he became so weak that he was unable to meet the Jamal. The purpose of life send them is making the drama leading the people five times a day spending so much time in the message around the people. But now they're starting to notice his absence and the hum. The hum. The anxiety and distress is now increasing in Medina, not just the question, the news is starting to spread
the next day.
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he came into the masjid.
He led the people in slot one and slot to vote in slots
and slots in Madrid.
As he returned back to Russia, after slaughter in Madrid, he lost consciousness.
Bill under the law and who came when it was time for the issue of breath. He noticed that he was still unconscious he said to Ashura. Has he regained consciousness? No he hasn't. Then the province has in them woke up.
Have they prayed yet? Aisha layers hula they're still waiting for you.
Okay, bring me some water
burning up. Bring me some water. They poured literally a bucket over him. Imagine this. They put a bucket of water over the Messenger of Allah sly Selim. He stood up he collapsed and he lost consciousness again. Con conscious unconscious.
He then wakes up a little while later
actually prayed yet.
No messenger of Allah. They're still waiting for you. Bring me the water. Come on.
Another bucket of water over the province of Lysander. He stood up.
He Julie collapsed,
lost consciousness. This happened three more times.
On the sixth time
the professor licen them when he regained consciousness, he realized that this wasn't going to happen. He said Sasha go and ask say now Walker said we're going to ask a worker to lead the prayer
don't ask a worker to lead the prayer
You know, this statement has been examined in the books of
Sierra and everything because there's so much around this incident
because you all know that I should have made that famous statement you know, that my that my father is very soft and very gentle. And when he recites the Quran, he keeps crying is something that is doesn't no one can hear the cry because he's just crying. It's just a waste of time. Yeah. And what what what what benefit is it? This was the statement that was said, you know, the response of the previous lesson of go and do it man you love people, like the companions of us have always had a finding some kind of line this that plotting and planning, this is what you've heard. You will also know of course, that the law was actually using that as a font. She later herself admitted, I didn't
want the people to be looking outside of Accra Siddiq is the one who jumped in when the purpose of life send him was the one who's looking to take an opportunity. I didn't want this to be politically overturned, and make you look bad on my father upon my family. I didn't want some fitness to come of it. If the purpose of life silom himself that's something that's fine, but I don't want to that's just is your story. What about Mohammed sublicensing story? What about him? How important was this moment for him? The official handover? Was it being done in a former enough way? Do we know of the prophet SAW Selim was happy enough in the way that he was sent someone else to tell him to lead the
prayer? What about the rest of the companions? What does it official statement at least that tells Abu Bakr Siddiq city the prayer? What does that mean to them? So where is the Messenger of Allah? What happens to him now?
Where's our leader? Where's our guide? What about Abu Bakr Siddiq radi Allahu taala?
What about our Bukhara Sidious? Now, do you think this man wants to take the position of the professor Lysander moss is still there? Can you imagine the pressure?
Can you imagine how many of us we don't like to lead the prayer now small group of five nobodies? Can you imagine taking on the mantle the responsibility of this nation
of workers to do
when I actually went and told him and Bill also reinforced the message. There was no other option and he led them in slot to the Asia
Friday's the next day.
The professor Lyceum didn't come out at home.
He was unconscious for the majority of the day, in and out of fever too weak to move. Now the companions now started to get very worried. Say the walker Siddiq is leading them in prayer. And now they know that things are serious. On Saturday now.
Morning, he couldn't make it. In the afternoon he comes out he comes out again being drugged
as depression in Medina and in this Masjid. And the people there on our thinking what's going to happen suddenly just the appearance of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, it was like an aid for them. If you look in the books of Hadith, and you see how the people were so happy that this is maybe a recovery. This is maybe he's being drugged, this may be a Recovery Center. vaca Siddiq is at the front about make the secretary home about to lead the prayer that people saw it's a part their part to allow him to go through said democracy take moves to come back. I promise ourselves to stay where you are. Stay where you are. And he tells his companions to place him right next to the say
the local acidic. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam led the people in slots over on that Saturday. We've seen a worker acidic standing right by his side. And the companions behind they followed, say the worker.
This was the formal handover. This was the moment that the people see that by making obachan acidic Stan and showing that this is the one that you will be following. I have officially now ratified you've seen this now.
And this prayer was now complete.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
On that Saturday when he returned back home.
He started to look at his possessions.
The next day, he ensured that everything that he owned was given out and it was very little. He had some armor he gave that for the public benefit. He had slaves the freedom he had six and seven six or seven dinar the story of this section
70 out will make you laugh.
pennies, nothing pocket change. The professor Lysander would lose consciousness by cup. And he would just ask he would say, hey, Ashley, did you? Did you give out that six, seven dinner that I told you about? Our jasola been busy. I've been looking after you and did you give it out or not? Your life just been busy.
Okay, who'd lose consciousness again? You know, you know, you know what I hate about this subject, is just how easiest it is for me to say all my time, he loses consciousness.
He loses consciousness. And I say and I hate myself for saying that statement because it seems so throw away like as there is nothing as if it's quite normal for someone just to lose consciousness. But how do you express the pain? How do you how do you express that which is a lie, send them told us himself, that indeed in this death sakurada is just so painful, indeed in depth, the pain indeed, in depth, the pain, he kept waking up or reminding I shall keep waking up or minding it until finally she got rid of the 17 hour. Now we have a prophet who has nothing to give nothing said he has inheritance for the others because as the professor Lysander said in the Hadees, we do not leave
back behind dinar and Dirham we do not leave money. It's his guidance is his knowledge is that which is it is his inheritance.
It is that which we are His followers by based upon that. We are the takers up of that inheritance every single person who faces that sooner that he has left behind and embraces it, and studies and practices it.
The Prophet sallallahu wasallam
the next morning slots will further
your list name,
the 12th of rubella when
he woke up, he didn't have the energy to go to the masjid. Despite it being right next to the house of Ayesha. He prays his morning prayer.
Once it finished his prayer,
he came to the edge of his house which was divided by a curtain and he lifted his curtain to see Satan Walker Sadiq leading the companions in slightly fragile.
The angle of the lead of the lifting of the curtains meant that said no workers Siddiq, and the companions showed the progress of life and limb space.
They were shocked the depression that was there at that time. And then suddenly to be able to see the progress of licen them again, is this hope, again for us is this that moment that the professor I send them is going to make him and they started to the joy. If you look at the Hades, the joy that entered their hearts that his back, made them move, they weren't sure what to do.
Our prayers were in the prayer here. This is different now to the previous scenario.
So Dr. Siddiq makes the move, and the progress of Lysander made their motion, carry on with the prayer, stay with the prayer, complete the prayer.
And then he looked at his companions and he smiles.
The Prophet smile.
He smiled because he knew this was the job done.
He knew that he had been given a task
to convey a message from his Lord, to a people to face that he put into practice to ensure that there was a system that would reproduce that message that it will be taken forward by a group of people who will stay unified behind a single leader in a way that will give honor and Iza to this religion. When he saw senator Booker Siddiq leading that prayer, and the commercial full of the most senior and greatest people that this world has seen praying behind him his mouth
despite his pain, despite his difficulties, he smiled. He led the curtain drop, and he went back to his mattress on the floor.
He lost consciousness again.
When he awoke he was in severe pain.
Ashura, Dr. Loren Ha. Then came and cradled him and put his head in her lap.
The professor Lysander said I can feel the taste of that food. The Lamb of haber at hiber of course, with a Jewish woman, Xena bintan Harris, Jewish woman who poisoned the profits of life send them she went up to the prophet and said, What part of the lamb is it that you like best? The shoulder is the one I like best. Okay, I will bring you the shoulder and she infused it with the maximum amount of poison possible.
poisoned. It's got its maximum capacity.
presented it to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam beschriebenen Bara he he he died instantly the purpose of life Salah has already eaten bisher has now eaten it passes away. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continued to eat it.
It did not affect him then, but the damage had been done.
In our complaints to Azure, I can feel that the pain I can feel the taste I can feel.
And then the headache started and he held his head.
For tomorrow, the Allahu Ananda walks in,
when she sees her father and foreigner comes to visit her father regularly. And the relationship between the province of Lesotho and Fatima is something which is beyond beautiful.
The respect that they have for one another, standing up for one another might have any ethnicity welcome, oh, my daughter, come and sit down. It is not possible this time
when Fatima sewed the condition of her father.
When she saw that condition, were cut about that. All the pain that my father is in
the process of life looked at her and said there will be no more pain of the day.
There will be no more pain after this day.
The sun had risen the time was the Doha time.
Fatima rhodiola. And her came close and took over the head of the professor Lyceum and he moved back
the progress of lifestyle and backend for her to come close. And he whispered something into her ear. Fatima started to cry.
When the purpose of life send him so that he beckoned her to come close again a second time and whispered into her ear. As she started to smile and laugh.
I showed her the Aloha Anna straightaway asked Fatima when she was leaving. What did the purpose of life send them to you? I can't tell you
afterwards when the purpose of life seldom had passed.
When she asked Fatima, Fatima said, I will tell you now, when I went first time to him,
he said to me that he was leaving this world.
And that made me cry.
But then he called me again and he said to me
that you will be the first of my family to join me.
You will be the first of my family to join me.
This is a man who was saying this to his daughter, the living remaining daughter, every single one of the children of the prophets lie Selim passed away in his lifetime. If you are a parent,
if you are a parent, then you know that the hardest and most difficult thing possible to understand is death of your child. It doesn't matter if they're young or they're old. But once they pass away the
impact of that upon a person is something else.
They say that the professor lesson and went through a year of sadness are hidden. When Khadija passed away and so on and so forth. He passed away and this the profits of licensable entire life was a life of sadness. The Prophet slicin was a mountain
the purpose of life and limb was a mountain.
What he had to put up with in terms of emotional emotional stress, and trauma,
to see what he had comes through to see his friends being tortured and killed his children die than to say this the Fatima that he was going to proceed her.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam although he passed, he was true in what he said because Fatima the LA hotel and had passed away six months after the professor license.
Their LMS said that she never recovered from the sadness of losing her father.
When Parkman left the room,
the professor Lola Holly was lm
beckoned for Ayesha. I should now start to compress his head and pour water and use a flannel to try and keep him cold. She was sitting cross legged with the promise of license head in her lap
Adorama Abu Bakr came in the brother of Ayesha, who's doing this work.
The province of Lysa Lim
asuna until the end adjure until the end abettor until the end, she could she noticed that the province license is following Adorama and as he walked in, he moved across
and she noticed that he's he's looking at the sewak So he said, I think that you want the car Corolla he said, Yes. So she took that work.
And she then softened it
in her own mouth,
and then put it in the mouth of the professor licensed them and wiped his teeth with it.

I want to end because I've taken too much of your time. And I know that this hasn't been a very coherent
presentation at all. And I asked for forgiveness for that.

workers to the Omaha pub, the great companions. You would think that David understood understood this issue. But even they were taught a lesson from a moment when they went to see her.
And just look at this one line, look at this, why would they even go and see him? And why would they even do that? Actually, you know, they've got no connection to him and really, she's a senior member of the community. The prophets lie Selim, though, he would visit her all the time.
And you know, the purpose of life and what he would do,
he would treat her like his own mother. And the prophets lie. Selim said that when your parents pass away part of the bill, to your parents, part of your good obedience to them is to visit their friends after they passed away, these companions will visiting the so called mother of the prophets of life and limb, which shows that they treated the messenger of a loss of life send them better than their own fathers, by visiting home, amen. And when they went to see her, as she started to cry, they said, Why are you crying? He's in a much better place than he is with his Lord and obey Him and said that it's not.

of the revelation is the loss of directs guidara guidance from Allah subhanaw taala.
By brothers and sisters, that guidance is the only thing that we've got left. I want to say to you that we ourselves, we are like people who are in darkness. And I said, No Mallika said the day that he came to Medina, the most greatest day of my life ever. The whole city was buena water illuminated, the day he died.
The darkness fell, and the darkness fell, the darkness fell, the depression sets in. We are a people who are like underground,
underground, no light coming in. But there's a crack and a small crack of light, we can see and it gives us hope. And we try to then make a plan. There's some rescue miners at the top and they lead the rescue team.
And they've got a plan to get us out using that light that light is the sooner and those rescue miners are the scholars and when they combine that light and assume that the Quran and Sunnah and we follow that rescue plan, then we will ensure that we will follow this purpose of Lyceum and not suffer the calamity of his loss. Because if we follow that sooner,
and we will be okay. We might even join him sallallahu wasallam. In fact, we might not only just join him, we might even be with his Lord subhanho wa Taala.
I end with this.
a catastrophe is only a catastrophe if you allow it to change your course.

And I asked you and asked you by Allah I asked you that, you know, the conference has been a wonderful conference have been a wonderful weekend. And I asked for forgiveness, like I said for this lecture not being in the way that it should be structured. But I will do one thing that will get me a lot of reward. And I think that will make something of a difference for you as well. And that is at this moment in time as I walk off, send a sincere sallallahu alayhi wasallam upon him a real peace of blessings, not the one that you just say automatically because I say Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But the one way you just stop and you think
back to one when your friend or someone famous dies and you say rest in peace and when you say you because you stopped you stop using you stopped. Whatever he was doing, he had the you had the statement and you think rest in peace. Whereas when we had the name Mohammed we know he's passed away with some lights and lamps and lights and lamps like there's no heart.
So as I walk off our ancestors, we will note that we're what no clapping
I just want you at that moment just to like to stop Close your eyes do anything. And just think about the message of alarm, what he did and what he went through. And then from your heart, say yeah, Allah said your abundant Peace and blessings upon the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
