in the 10th year of the Hydra, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made his first and only Hajj, the farewell hedge and under hedge 10s of 1000s of companions from across the Arabian Peninsula joined him, some of them it was the first time that they saw and they met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it would be the last time for many of them as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during that period of hedge those weeks and those days that he spent in Makkah, and in the holy sites of minang was delaford arafa. He gave a number of sermons, a number of hottub, and together collectively they are known as the hot Metohija to the farewell sermons of the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addressing this large gathering of Muslims, his own man his nation, for the last time on such a scale, he set for them a number of guidelines, a number of principles and foundation issues, that they would need to continue to apply within their lives, that they will need to embrace that they will need to believe in and accept and then pass on to those generations of Muslims who would come after them. Those hope and those sermons they were memorized, and they will relate from generation to generation you will find them in the books of Hadith, they have been preserved for us. It is one such segment from those hotbars one
search of those sermons that the Prophet gave salaallah alayhi wa sallam that I want to focus upon in today's hotbar where the Prophet said salaallah alayhi wa sallam Yeah, yohannes in our back of my head or in the back of my head. laughably Arabi in our journey while earlier Jamie and Allah Arabi what are the abule Darla is what the US whether Allah absorb Illa be Taka, ko Luqman and the more at the moment to rob the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during those final sermons. Not only did he lay down for us our appeal and our belief in terms of how we should believe in Allah and worship in Allah, and reject any single path that may even lead to the possibility of sharp but the prophets
on a low it will sell them also set for us a charter of our social values, the way that we behave within our lives, the different principles that we will adopt, and we will apply in the way that we treat one another in the way that we coexist. So he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, oh people know that your Lord is one and your father is one. There is no superiority for an Arab over a non Arab, no non Arab over an Arab. Nor is their superiority for a person of white skin over black skin. Or the person of black skin over white skin. In love with taqwa unless and until they have Taqwa. They have piety and fear of Allah. All of you are from Adam. And Adam was created from dust, the prophet
Celts and Allah Allah you will send them on another occasion in that hotbar he said so Allah Allah He will send them in Allah Bahama Bay in the ma ma la Kumara come to Hurmati Yomi come hada Fisher hurry come harder fee Bella de kumada. Allah has made haraam upon you unlawful impermissible, meaning if you transgressing these issues, you are sinful, Allah will hold you to account and he may punish you. Allah has made haraam for you amongst yourselves your blood and your wealth. And your honor. Just as his day is sacred, meaning the days of hunch. And just as this month is sacred the month of Hajj,
Just as this place, meaning that place of house is sacred, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is giving us these issues, because even though we are new today, living in 2017, we know that racism is wrong. We know that bias is wrong. We know that prejudice is wrong. We know to judge people simply based upon the color of their skin, or the caste and the tribe that they happen to be born in, or the country that they happen to live in, isn't a factor or just factor to discriminate between people. But even though we know this, and we know the theory, when we look around the world around us, we see that prejudice and racism and these types of biases still exist, and they play a
role within our lives. And I'm not speaking today about those are the issues that take take place across the world. But I want to focus upon even us as Muslims, amongst ourselves, people, Muslims, one to another, the way that we even amongst our communities, from the stories that you hear from the incidents that you witness, from the things that you've just come across in life, you see that prejudice is still there. Prejudice is defined in the English language as forming an unjust an opinion of someone based on no reason you hold someone to account for something that they have no control over me and you we didn't choose the color of our skin. We didn't apply to have certain
parents. We didn't ask to be part of a tribe or nation or a caste. Allah azza wa jal is the one who gave us those issues we have no seen those affairs yeah you harness in nacala gonna come in victory we're
gonna come show Reuben wakaba elita are awful. All Mankind we created you from a single male and a female humans males and females, and we have made you into Castes and Tribes, so that you will know one another. We know the people of our caste we we are able to determine where people come from because of their tribes and their nationalities. And Allah says in a Chroma come in the law he attacks them. But Allah does a look at those issues. Allah judges you based upon your taqwa. So when we look at one another, why then do we not base our judgment on the similar standard of taqwa a person's love for a lion? Is religion, the way the person is in their character in their dealings?
Why do we judge people, even if it's only a single time in your life, it's too long to judge someone based upon their color, or because they happen to be male or female, or because they come from a certain caste or tribe. We have these problems within our community, and not only within our community, but even in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we have countless narrations and a hadith where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addressed this issue, because amongst the Arabs and amongst the Quraysh, it was prevalent as well.
So we have the story of a Buddha rhodiola who one day as he's sitting in his speaking below about the Allah who I'm interrupting. So a mother becomes angry. And he says to him, how dare you cut me off your business soda? Oh, son of a black woman. That's how he addresses aboda rhodiola who and after saying these words, Bilal becomes upset, he goes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says to abou in naka imbruvica Jaya helia you are a man who has traits of ignorance of pre Islam still within him. This is an acceptable below robiola, who, irrespective of the color of his skin is one of the greatest, most illustrious companions of this
oma Billa rhodiola who was so illustrious and known even amongst the companions, that our model the Allahu Akbar, during his khilafah he would call him as a mirror meaning he would say this is see you the Muslim and he is the leader of the Muslims believe in the robber rhodiola one, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam conquered Mecca, and he wanted someone to go and make the other and on top of the Kaaba for more of the people he could have chosen. He chose this man who used to be an ex slave, who used to be tortured and persecuted in the streets of Makkah. Because Islam doesn't look at such issues. Islam judges people based upon their taqwa, one of the scholars of tabulating that
same narration of a Buddha the wording of Sahih al Bukhari is one of the scholars with the tab you're in went to Roberta, Roberta is the place where Buddha rhodiola, one settled in later life, when he passed away, he said that I went to Robert and I saw a Buddha rhodiola one with a servant. Both of them were dressed exactly the same. The Arabs would differentiate between the master and the servant based upon their clothing and their dress, just as you have in many other cultures and societies. But a Buddha was wearing the exact same clothes as his servant. So the scholar the compound, the man from the tablet, and he said, I asked a Buddha, oh Buddha, why are you dressed the
same way? That's not the normal
Our society is not what people are accustomed to. So Buddha rhodiola, one replied and he said, because of that incident that took place with Billa with the Allah who was the Prophet said to me sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Euro man, who still has traits of Jamelia of ignorance and pre Islam within him. So I dressed the same as my servant, so that we will be equal. So we mindfully absorb the Allah who I'm dealing just here that one incident and dismiss it, or think it's a one off for the rest of his life. He will take that lesson and he would apply it on a daily basis. Make sure that none of the arrogance that he had within him was a type of pride or even a type of feeling of
superiority over someone else for just cause none of it would continue with him for the rest of his life. The prophet SAW Allah while he will sell them as is in our body and Muslim was was traveling with his army companions, and a skirmish brokered between the Maharaja green and the ansara. So one of the people of donsol he said, Yeah, Lil Ansari, calling the people to his aid or people of the ansara come to my aid. And the man from the Maha Julian from the metcons, he said, yadon Mahajan in or people of Macau, the Maharaja who come to my aid. When this commotion to place on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam overheard he said Marbella with our ginger, Honey, why do I hear the
calls of Jamelia, calling people and asking for aid based upon someone's tribal someone's cousin because that's what the Arabs used to do. If someone from your tribe was a murderer, they killed someone. unjustly you would still aid them and support and defend them, even though they're wrong and they're guilty simply because they're from your tribe. They're from your caste. They're from your family. Marbella. TJ Hillier. Why do I hear these calls of jack Hillier? And then they explain what happened to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so the Prophet said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I will have in the Harmon Tina, leave this alone, because it is something which is
reprehensible. Something ugly, has no good odor, Nothing good can come from this because it takes away the true skills of justice that we should apply. The Prophet told us on Allahu Allah, He will sell them. In the hadith of Abu huraira radi Allahu uncollected in Surah never be the wound in Allah but Allah bancomer obeah troja helia Wahhabi for Macmillan TV, Yun Wofford, Joan shotty and timbu. And the more at the moment to rob, he said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah has removed from your people, the traits of jahi Leah, and the fact that they used to be arrogant because of their lineage. My father in so and so my grandfather came from such and such a tribe. And the way that it
is said even though you may not say to put down someone, or you don't say to someone, I'm better than you, but the intonation of the voice, the context in which it is said, the way that it is used, does the same thing, make someone feel lower, because they don't happen to come from that tribe, or that caste or the national whatever it may be. Allah has removed from you these things. So all that we have in Islam is movement on Turkey. A person who is a believer, based upon taqwa referred to him Shakti and a person who is wretched because of the evil someone does God we accept a good bill out of your loved one salmonella faricy, sohaib, roomie, zaidan, haritha, ameriglo, Yasser rhodiola,
Hanuman, many of the companions, poor, some of them have black skin, some of them foreigners, some of them slaves, whatever it was, but Allah exalted their honor and their status and their mentioned because of the taqwa while third June shocky, and a person of evil irrespective of their lineage, than the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam at the beginning of Islam stand and call his people and address them by name, the different clans of Quraysh and the different names of his uncles and his aunts and he said to them, that I cannot benefit you in anything. If you don't believe in Allah. Doesn't matter that you're from my tribe. You're my family. You're my uncle, you're my father,
you're my sister. none of it matters unless you have the taqwa in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the hadith of a Buddha would all of you are from the children of Adam, and Adam was created from clay, irrespective of where your family comes from. All of us eventually go back to the same father and the same mother. The prophet SAW Allah, Allah or Selim continued, and he said, either you will leave this off, you will leave this off, meaning this type of racism and prejudice, or a larsa will will consider you to be more insignificant than a bug that goes and spends his time in people's waste a chromic Mullah. That's what bugs do. That's what
insects have a certain nature do. They spend their time in filth and impurity? That is how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam likened this type of action and this type of thinking in the hadith of Obi rhodiola when he mentions the story of the frog
Musashi his center. The two people from amongst his nation, they came to him, each one of them was showing off because of his lineage. He was showing that he was better than the other. And he named nine of his forefathers, nine of his forefathers in way of arrogance to show that he was better than the other. And the other man who wasn't from such a noble lineage, didn't know his background as well. Didn't come from such a wild culture tribe. He only knew two of his father's name, and he mentioned them. So the prophets Allah azza wa jal revealed to the Prophet Musa alayhis salam say to the one who mentioned his nine fathers, the role nine of them are in the fire of how and you will be
the 10th to join them and say to the one who only knows his two fathers, the both of them are in genuine paradise, and you will be the third to join them. Allah azza wa jal doesn't look at such issues. This was exactly the same thinking of Quraysh. And it is what led them to disbelieving in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. In our time, it doesn't lead shala to disbelief, but what it leads to is us accept rejecting certain parts of Islam, or treating people in a certain way, which amounts to sin, and it is wrong amongst Muslims. In the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one thing that he established sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is in for example of issues of
marriage, social issues, issues of marriage and divorce and so on. That people shouldn't have the bias of color, or the bias of of status, or the bias of tribe and caste and so on and so forth. fathima bins base are the Allahu Allah, as is collected authentically in southern and maselli, a great illustrious female companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she says and it's a long Hadith but the point of the Hadith is that two of the companions came to us for our hands in marriage, asked for a hand in marriage. So she went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she said a Boogeyman wow we are both of them asked for my hand in marriage. So the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded and he said, Abuja him for your bow saw one artillery, one man while we are for Savile Row koulamallah. As for the first man Abuja him, he's a man who doesn't take his stick off his shoulder. It's a metaphor. Some of the scholar said it means that he constantly traveled is never around. Other said that he was a man who was known to be strict in his nature. It's a metaphor, and as from what I hear he is bankrupt doesn't have any money. rather go and marry Osama a boozy. Osama bin Zayed is the son of zedi blowhard. He comes from a lineage and a line of people of black skin color. He comes from a lineage and a line of people who were slaves and slaves
go and marry Osama immunoassay. She says for the model the Allahu unhappy face. She says that I didn't like to do so wasn't something that I wanted to accept. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me again, go and marry Osama Abu Zaid, any type of bias that doesn't have just just reasons, isn't something which is based upon knowledge of fact, isn't something which Islam accepts. One of the things that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam also shunned by us in is amongst the Arabs, they wouldn't marry widowers, for man was a widow, he lost his wife, they wouldn't marry people to them, simply because it was something that they didn't like was a taboo within the
society. Just as today in many of our communities and cultures, we have the same taboo. Someone's a widower, someone's a divorcee. People don't want to marry them.
So the Prophet sallallahu it was cinemas in Sahih Muslim, the famous story of Julie beep. jollibee was a man who was a widow, his mother has passed away. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to the parents of a girl in Medina, and he said that I want to ask for your daughter's hand in marriage, they became happy. They said, Yes, he said, but it's not for myself. They said Who is it for? He said, it's for Julie be the new drill a B once they knew his circumstances. So the father said that I will go to my wife and speak to her. And when they went home, and he went home and he spoke to her, she said no, he's a widow. We don't want to marry our daughter to a widower.
But the daughter overheard the conversation. And she said to the to our parents, what did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ODU with what did he suggest? So they told him, they told her that he wants you to marry Julie B. She said how can you possibly reject something that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recommends? let me marry him. The scholars mentioned and it's mentioned in some generations of the same Hadeeth that Julie Brody Allah who would later go on to become one of the martyrs of Islam. He would be martyred in one of the buttons that would lead to take place in Islam. every type of bias and prejudice, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to stay
away from within our religion. And there are many types of biases that we have, where we oppress people and we do wrong to people, sometimes verbally, sometimes psychologically and sometimes physically or morodian.
long line was a man who knew how to be just, if he saw people being unjust, he would correct that injustice. In his time the governor of of Egypt was a man a companion by the name of Amma liberal us for the long run a great, illustrious companion. His son had a dispute with an Egyptian man, and because the Egyptian man even though he was in the right, because it wasn't in the favor of the son of amodal, asked the governor son, he beat him. The Man from Egypt left Egypt and he went all the way to Medina, to hammer the Allah one. And he complained Sumeragi Allah one called Laos, the government, and he called his son. And when he presented them, and he knew the situation and the
right and the wrong of it, he told the Egyptian man to take a stick, and to beat the son of the governor, just as he was beaten. And then when he finished he told him now go and beat his father as well. I'm gonna browse a companion, he said, or am or why does he beat me? It is my son who did the wrong. Why does he beat me? He said, because he only beat him because he was your son. And he thought and I'm the governor, son, I can do as I please. My tester, but to Manas. what God wanted that to Omaha to Mahara. When did you begin to enslave people, and their parents gave birth to them as free men, Allah azza wa jal gave us these things that we have within our colors and our cultures
and so on. Because they're a means for us to know one another. A means for us to find ways to communicate and to learn about one another, not so that we can be prejudiced against one another. This Masjid and one of the things that we should be thankful to Allah azza wa jal for is when you look around, you see people from various cultures and communities, people of various skin colors, people that come from various social backgrounds and economic backgrounds. That is Islam. That is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to do. every type of bias that doesn't make sense doesn't have a place in Islam. One of those biases that, unfortunately, we also have is where
we think, for example, and it still exists, that men are better than women. Or when we have children that a son is better than her daughter. We know the stories of the Arabs and in their nation and amongst the coaches, that they would bury in some of them, they would bury their daughters alive. Because for them to have a daughter was a shame. It was a blot on their reputation. They would rather bury them alive, then suffer the humiliation of rearing and nurturing our daughter into adulthood. Even though we don't have that extreme, the mentality still exists. How many times we've heard the story of someone who has given birth to a daughter, and people come in they give
condolences. condolences, because it's a daughter and it's not a son. Or if someone has the first time or daughter the second time a daughter the third time my daughter, by the fourth time they still have a daughter. Now people are sorry for them. Allah has given you a son. We feel so sorry, you tried four times, four times it was a daughter. That's the type of bias So type of prejudice, no one gets to choose the gender of their child. You don't get to choose and make the choice. Allah decrees as he decrees as Allah says in the Quran, Lila human Kusum Allah it will all be leukemia. Yeah, bulimia.
bulimia leuco or use a widow Hindu chronoa inasa, where dragoman Yasha Pema, if Allah wills, He will give you all boys, all sons. And if Allah wills he gives you all daughters. And if Allah wills he will join them between your sons and daughters. And if Allah wills you will be barren, have no child. Allah is the one who decrees so then to go to someone and judge them based upon this doesn't make sense from a logical point of view, let alone it being something established within our religion. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has the greatest and most noble lineage of any person. And today his lineage can only be taken from his daughters from Fatima rhodiola Juana the
lineage is only taken from a girl. So when it comes to the lineage of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we're proud and we boast but when it comes to one another, we give condolences. And Mr. Mohammed Rahim, Allah tala, it is said that when people would come and they will tell him that so installing the community, on one of his friends had a child, a baby daughter, he would say to them, give them glad tidings, because the prophets of Allah, they will fathers of daughters, the prophets of Allah, they would have more daughters and they would have sons, they will prophets have daughters. So Allah azzawajal tells us and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam establish this
practice, within his Sunnah from the beginning of his life, all the way to the end that hotbird tahajjud Wada that final farewell Hajj that he performs on Allah wa alayhi wa sallam, the when we look at one another, and we judge one another, it is not just about your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala alone, even though that is the most important thing, but also from that knowledge that you have in that fear and piety of Allah, your relationship with those around you
The way that you treat others the way that you deal others with others, your character towards others, that should also be something which is based upon what Allah told us, and what the Prophet told us Salalah alayhi wa sallam escolares xojo that he takes away from us and our hearts, every type of evil and every type of disease, and especially these diseases of arrogance, and jealousy and envy barakallahu li walakum through her and he was sitting at one of our annual yakni Murphy mammillaria to LACMA

sallallahu alayhi wa early he was talking to us when he was seldom at the Sleeman kathira amabel.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Hadith in Sahih Muslim narrated by brahmanical Ashley rhodiola and our Brownfield muddiman Omar Eugenia for things within this honorable remain and they will be from the first of January here and follow Villa Serbia will backfill and sub what is described in nujoma Nia for things, they will remain in this Oh man, they will be from the affairs of jay he needs to be proud and arrogant because of your lineage, and to class the lineage of others, and to see green from the stars. And number four, to well over the dead. These were the practices of the people before Islam that Islam came, and it told us and he rejected. But even so,
people will still practice them in one way or another, they will still believe in them and adopt them in one way or another. They may not be to the same extreme that the Arabs had an operation, but they will practice them and they will deal with them in one way or another. So the message of this is what the prophet SAW Allah while he was sending him in his own life, when he was rejected and abandoned by his own people, by his family, by his tribe by the people of Quraysh. What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say, in the earlier abelia Sunday be only in nama Walia allow Sati home meaning, he would say, the people of my father's tribe, his family, and so on, they
are not my only. They are not my protectors and my helpers. Allah is my protector, and the righteous believers. So if you're someone who has faced a type of prejudice and so on, it's not because of Islam, but it's because of the weakness that we have as Muslims, because we don't know our Islam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what he said, was trust in Allah, and look to the righteous believers. And for the rest of us, this is something which we all see. And we all know, within our families, within our relations within our friends and within our communities, it is time for us to start to correct us on in our sounds, and in those around us. Try to correct this type of standard
and measurement that we have over the people so that it's in line with that which Allah once and that which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you ask Allah azzawajal that He bestows upon us and our community, His mercy, and his blessings and justice, and that Allah subhanaw taala say calls us from oppressors and from being oppressive, and we ask Allah azza wa jal that he saves us from the traps of shavon. And that alarm, which will protects us and our families from every evil Subhanallah because the IMEI of the phone was Salam ala mousseline from de la
