It is customary for human beings
to remember times that were monumental in their history, or events that were very joyful for their history, or events that caused them a lot of pain.
Today, you have the day of the Truth and Reconciliation for those kids who went to the schools and never came back home.
When we recognize the pain of some on other parts, you remember the day the Berlin Wall fell, or the apartheid in South Africa ended, or the independence that many of our countries many of us that come from countries, they got their independence at the hands of the colonizers. We as human beings as race have this habit to mark that day and to remember it
whether painful or joyful.
If you look at it,
there was no day that was more monumental
Then the day our Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entered this earth.
That was the best day ever. It changed the direction of the world. That is why Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran, naka de mon Allahu Allah meaning is vasavi him Rasulullah Min. Min unfussy him that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala says that it was by the blessing, man. Now sadly, in translation, you pick up an English translation, the man says a blessing or a bounty. But that's not the case. In Arabic language, there is a minut difference, there's sorry, there's a major difference between the word Nima and between the word Aha, and between the word and men, or mean, the word near Ma is a bounty that is given to an individual, whether you benefit from it or not, whether it
changes you or not, it really does not necessitate that that bounty or that namah or that thing that Allah has given you or somebody else gives you makes an impact in your life.
But when you say the word Mena, or you say the word man, then it necessitates that this bounty this giving from Allah had a major impact on every single one of us.
Subhan Allah and we lose that because we use the word English we use English or Urdu translations to forget this. Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day that he was born. On the day that he was born, the world saw events that nobody else had. in Persia, there was this fire the final Korea there was this person who was responsible for making sure that the fire is lit and the fire never extinguished for more than 1000 years on that night, when on the Fajr of that morning, when Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam entered this earth that fire extinguished.
On the Day when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and these are all things from authentic narrations. There are things that are not authentic. What I present to you today are authenticated narrations inside NC ha II these have been authenticated by more than one scholar. Then on the day, when Rasul Allah was born on that same day by Easter Caesars, he had a palace he had a courtyard. And if you were to understand he would he had this grand setting his crown, weighed 180 kgs. It was suspended by chains and he would sit on the chair and he would enter his head into the crown. And he had balconies like the sisters that are sitting up top Imagine having 14 balconies, one above
another above another, everything looking down. All of those 14 balconies cracked the day prophets of Allah who it was salam was born.
It was an event that changed the direction of humanity.
It was an event that was so monumental, that Allah subhanho wa Taala says that before Rasul Allah was entrance into this earth, Allah subhanaw taala. In the Quran, he said he sealed the passages for shayateen and gins to hear the news. And if anybody tries to buy a home, she have 130 a blazing star chases that Jin. This was in defense of in protection of Rasul Allah has news
basil was known as a book that's called The Rise and Fall of the House of Caesars. If you read that book and it mentions that taser, or Caesars, he was an expert in star gazing and understanding the astronomical signs from stars and he was sitting one day and the day before Rasul Allah came, this is a book written by a non Muslim he says that Caesar saw a star in the sky and he said, the king of this world has arrived
and the next day rasool Allah was born.
So this is the day where Allah subhanaw taala he says that, this is from the falafel, * befuddling Allah he will be Rosh Murthy. He the word called the fatherly lie say by the fuggle by the bounty and the grace of Allah Wa Rahmatullahi and His mercy by a majority of the Mufasa runes they say the word Rama Devi is also by Rama de eBUY Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the sulfasalazine even Abbas even Alka and Mujahid these are the fussy runes of our first three generations. They said this word Rama teehee indicates Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What is Allah telling you and me? Paul say before that Allah He by the Grace of Allah Wa Rahmatullahi and
his Rama I II Prophet sallallahu Sallam Furby Zelicah fell your throat. It's because of that grace and Rama of Allah that Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, let you enjoy and be happy on this day.
This is the month
if you ask many of our younger children today. What ones are we in? They don't know. Someone to therapy February Oh, well. It's the month in which Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came. It's the month in which even is hot. The first historian of Sierra he says, but I'll walk up Robbie in a world. There are two types of ye. The one ye that comes from Allah is an indirect way in form of dreams.
If you pick up the book radical Muhammad says that six months prior to Rasul Allah was
new boo wa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam six months prior to that and Robbie will well he started seeing dreams and every time he would see a dream at the night he would wake up next morning and he would see that event take place the exactly the same way he saw it in his dream.
This was the month in which he Jura took place. This was the month in which Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam got married to her deja the Allahu Allah, this was the month in which he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam departed from this earth.
So this is a month that we should use as a season to educate our families about Prophet sallallahu Sallam a lot of you are going to get these WhatsApp messages. Some are going to say this is not allowed others are going to say this anybody who says this is not allowed do not love Rasul Allah, the real question for both sides is to sit down and ask this question. And I had had these arguments with them and I would tell them fine, you want to celebrate Molad you don't want to celebrate them all. But my question to both sides. Tell me what was the description of the eyes of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam we all claim to love him. Can you describe to me the eyes of Rasulullah? Can you
describe to me his sandals? Can you describe to me his turban? Can you describe to me his favorite clothing? Can you describe to me his favorite food? Can you describe to me his travel? Can you describe to me how he liked to sit down? Can you describe to him to me how he liked to be in his house? Can you describe to me his private clothing? Can you describe to me his public clothing? What was his preferences? We are not aware of that.
That is why Allah says in the Quran I'm lamb Yachty for rasool Allah whom do they not know their Nabil? The Rasul Allah hormone Kiran Are you in a state of encounter for his existence?
So the question that we need to ask in today's day and age rather than fighting is to educate
education, both sides that are celebrating or not celebrating. They both have weakness in their mouth ephah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they do not know enough about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The amount of rasool Allah or the awareness of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is predicated on five sciences. I do not have the entirety to explain this but I will try my best to explain to you and let you taste some of the sciences. The first science of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is called as the science of Sera. This is what most of us are known for. This is a chronological events of how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam lived his
life. This happened this happened
has happened this event happened and a battle happened and then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away from the examples of these events, is the example of the birth of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that I gave you from examples of these events is the example of a demon harissa who was gifted by Khadija or the Allahu anha to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to serve Him and when his father came to take him back, he said, No,
I'm not leaving Muhammad Sallallahu
I prefer prophets, Allah, Allah, and he was not a prophet at that time. His whole look, his character was so amazing that before he was unabIe, the child did not want it to leave Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So we study this, and we learn about his chronological life. That is the science of sila. Then you have the second science, which is the science of Shama ill, this is the science that you find rarely being taught anywhere in massages. This is the most important science, in my opinion, even more important than the chronological events of Sera, because this tells you about the characteristics of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam example of that
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam eyes Mobarak they had four descriptions that were mentioned in all the 27 IDs that are mentioned for descriptions. Can I you know, Nabi? sallallahu alayhi wa sallam adage the eyes of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were adage which means was your line he had wide eyes he had big eyes. Can I know Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Acle the eyeline was pronounced he did not put any gold or any eyeliner and you had a pronounced eyeline. Well can I know Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mushkil a skull means the eyes this part the redness of the eyes were very, very pronounced. What can I know Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wasallam and gel which means
shahidul via the washi Disha de salud extreme whiteness and extreme blackness. These were the eyes of Prophet sallallahu it was in
the hair of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. In all the 16 narrations that you find about the description of the hero Prophet sallallahu Sallam can be described in three, the word you need to memorize is well ej wialon Gene Wantage. The first type of the hair Rasulullah kept was Wafra. Wafra is the hair when the hair length goes all the way to your ear loop ear lobes. Then he had the hair that was Lima, which was between the ear lobe and the shoulder so he had alternating length, and then the hair of Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wasallam, towards the end of his life was Joomla, which was the hairs that surpassed the shoulder Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam preferred to braid his
Many of us did not know that.
He preferred to have four braids, he would divide us here in four sections, and a braid and a braid and a braid, and he would tuck his hair back. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not like if a person had his hair back, he preferred to your fruit or who Furqan he would divide it from the center and he will take the hair behind his ears if he had to open it and he was not breeding the day he was. These are some of the descriptions of just his hair, his body mobile rock, his clothes, every single detail is mentioned to us in the science of Shama. And then you have the next science which is the science of the law. These are evidentiary grounds on whose basis you and I can prove
the prophethood of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is the science that our young children, our teenagers need to be taught. So when they go outside in anybody questions about the authenticity of Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then they can defend themselves and they have evidences to prove that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the true messenger. This is called the science of the law. And so we have done three so far, science of Sierra then the science of Shama L, which has the characteristics of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, then the science of dalla L, which are the evidentiary grounds on which we prove the prophethood of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam, then you have the science of Fatah in the superiority of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam above every single Nabhi.
you have use of a nub honey Rahim Allah Allah He wrote a book where he looked at verses in the Quran, between the descriptions of a Nabi and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and finding correlating events and trying to determine who was better.
Do not have time to explain a lot, but I will present one example for us to understand Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in the farm
and the world seemed
To be locked up and it feel like it was a dead end. Musa Ali Salam was at a dead end when he was at the Red Sea for Allen was chasing and the people of Musa they turned to Musa and he said yeah Musa Hooli Kunta we are dead.
Then Musa Ali salaam turned back to them and he said Kola it's impossible never in my era be saya Dini, indeed with me is my Rob. He is going to guide me to remember that one is. The second is what Rasulullah was in the hall and Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah and he was scared.
And he said he was afraid. So rasool Allah turned to Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah. And he says, la doesn't, then the sentences in Allah Mahayana indeed Allah is with us. Two sentences in my era be in Allah hermana three points that Allah Ma said proves that Rasul Allah was better point number one Musa they said I'm dumb enough so who Allah Rob, he said in nama Yes. Then he brought Allah
Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said in Allah indeed Allah so Allah came first than anybody else. So that's number one. Number two, Musa Ali Salam use the word Rob, which is the entry of towhead
that Allah created everything. Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam use the word Allah which is you know, here, which is the highest degree of Aqeedah that you will take Allah as the only one that you're going to serve. Then the third part, which is a part that each one of us should cry about, Musa alayhis salam has an entire nation behind him, and he forgets them. And he says in modern era be so yeah, Dini, he is going to guide to me, but also to Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam is alone in the heart. And he says in Allah hermana Indeed, Allah is with us with this Oma. He did not forget us. This tells us that he was the best Nabhi and the examples of these are numerous. Then you have
the science. So this is the science of Fada. And then you have the science of Hassan is an Nebby.
exclusive things that are only for Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and nobody else.
And this is usually the topic of Fox News and CNN. Oh, why did he have so many women? Why did this happen? All of these things. These are called exclusive rules for Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that do not apply to you and me.
They don't apply to us. They were given to rasool Allah alone. An example of that he did not have a limit on how many wives he can have. There was no limit to that. An example another example of that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he initiated a Salah
let's say after Assad, he's prayed one time towards the end of his life. He carried on praying those Toorak hours after I served because he was not allowed to drop anything that he began
for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tahajjud was wajib
hamdulillah it's not watch upon us. Otherwise many of us will be in trouble. We barely make it to Fudger
it was wajib on him, but it is not wajib on us and the examples of this is goes on. Imam SUTI Jalaluddin asuci you have ever always heard of this book called tafsir al Jalla. Line, the Tafseer of two generals. One July is July Lodine, or rumley. Angela Dean associati, the two generals so chalazion and Mahali Angela Dena su T. There are two generals who completed that seal. One of them Jalaluddin associati. He sat at the River Nile after fajr, every single day for 20 years compiling a book to focus on just the Hassan is of Prophet sallallahu sallam. He wrote a book of four volumes, and the people of that time complained to him and he said, Yeah, Gela Tana, this is so hard for us.
How are we going to read this books? So he said, So Hola. Hola, hola. Calm, I will do a selfie. So I will do a summary of it. And that summary was in 400 Plus pages. Then people complained to him and they said this is still too much 400 We're not going to read it. He said, If you cannot read a book of 400 pages, about Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then why are you a Muslim?
I mean, Subhan Allah, many of us have never read a book about Prophet sallallahu Sallam here, right? So it's too sad mcbomb for us. So in summary, there are five sciences in the spirit of following the verse of Allah subhanaw taala where he says I'm lamea ready for a solar home? Do they not know their profit? That awareness of profit
cerebellum is built on five sciences Sera, the historical events Shama il characteristics, the law in evidentiary grounds on Prophet sallallahu Sallam CASA is so exclusive things for a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and for Allah al the superiority of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam above every other Nabhi any of these books that you can pick up is going to be good. My advice to everybody and I like to end my hotbar with practical tips. Number one, make it a habit in at least in this month. We are living in a country you are everything has a season, turn this into a season of knowing Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there is nothing no harm in that and ask your family
what is the preference of book they have in English, there are many books that have been written. If you want to read the books, Martin Ling has Martin lings has a really nice book, which is written in a very, you know, story format that can be read to children. Otherwise, the wind the moon split is also a really nice book, if you have younger kids, those are books that are available, then you have never had urbania in Arabic, it's a 43 page book that can be read if you are Arab. And you want to read that book to your children and is written in a very beautiful, beautiful manner for the children. If you are not a family of books, and you're more of a family of TV and Netflix and that
kind of stuff, then that's fine, you still have hope. The hope is there are a lot of YouTube series that are out there that you can do that. Recently, I came across the series by a brother, I think out of Australia, and I have been listening to some of his lectures beautiful, beautifully done zero in English on SoundCloud. It's called Ali, his name is Ali alum gear, I can maybe leave it with, you know, the administration here they can post that person's link. I've never met him, I don't know. But I just heard his lectures that I made. And I was blown away at the new approach that he has taken to Sierra for modern day and age and it's an English and very fine English and very
understandable for all ages, and everybody wants to enjoy that. So make it an opportunity for you to get awareness of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to end with all of this, why is not so important.
Why is it so important and I will end with this modify is so important for us awareness of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because without awareness you cannot love.
You can't have love true love.
If you don't know who you're loving, I love rasool Allah. What did he eat? I don't know. How did he look like? I don't know. What was his favorite thing? I don't know. What was his favorite article of clothing? I don't know. Did you know that he named every single clothing of his
manifesto not no. Every single time he would put on a shirt he would say Alhamdulillah Hilary Albus Anna camisa. This comment of mine this shirt of mine this topi of mine the socks of mine, he would name the article that only comes that modify leads us to love Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that love when it is instilled in the hearts of every lover of Rasulullah than it promotes and it automatically pushes us to practice and to follow Him. Today we asked many of our children to do etbr To follow Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and that child is standing there saying who is he?
You want me to do these seminars for who?
Why do I do extra Cernunnos I have no idea why I'm doing these extra seminars. I have no idea why I need to do these things. Because he doesn't know who Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is so our responsibility is to follow the eye of the Quran Akula only Hadassah for Allah. Howdy welcome Elisa and Muslim investor farofa now Allah for Rahim.
Smilla will hamdulillah salatu salam ala ala Nabina bada in the end we ask Allah subhanaw taala that he grants us the ability to truly love a Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask that Allah subhanaw taala completes our iman by the love of Rasulullah sallallahu How do you sell them? As you mentioned in our authentic narration like meanwhile Hadoken patter are gonna have by Allah human Why do you or do you wanna do Jemaine that none of us have Iman? Until we have complete love for Rasulullah sallallahu sallam? It's the negation of our Eman until we have a love of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and that love cannot happen without knowing about him. We ask that Allah subhanaw
taala gives us the tofield to truly follow his footsteps. And to be from those who become from those who learn more about Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and help others learn more about him. We spread the love and the joy of his existence to everybody that is around us. We let them know that we have somebody important in our lives and we ask Allah that Rasul Allah truly becomes an inspiration for every single children to come. And we ask Allah that all of the beautiful children that are here and all the older uncles that are here and aunties that Allah subhanaw taala preserves our iman, we're living in difficult times, and He preserves the demands of this generation.
You and all the generations to come until yomo piano accord only had I was stuck for hola hola como Lisa illumise I mean, first of all for in the whole of water Rahim
