You've been following world events. There are those who in this month are belittling disrespecting this honoring our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the way that we react in both of those situations is extremely important for us as Muslims. It has always been the case that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his honor what he stands for his, his personality has always been attacked. From the moment that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam first stood up with the message of Islam, with the message of worshipping Allah subhana wa Taala alone, his own uncle Abu lahab, stood up and began to publicly ridiculed him. Throughout his prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:00:39--> 00:01:15

sallam, he was mocked and he was scorned and he was ridiculed. They called him crazy, and they called him a magician. They said that he was a saucer and that he was a poet. They stood and they physically and verbally abused him. sallallahu alayhi wasallam but Allah subhanaw taala in the Koran, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us how we deal with those types of attacks, and those attempts to dishonor him sallallahu alayhi wasallam we don't find in the Quran and the sooner we see some people doing well that leaves them in their claim of love and what they consider to be a form of defending the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a manifestation of love for him

00:01:15--> 00:01:51

and his station and his honor, that he leads them then to go and start innocently killing people randomly, or that they start to attack people claiming that that is their form of defending the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Allah xojo knows better than anyone how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and how much he was attacked and how it affected him sallallahu wasallam and Allah azzawajal tells us no Quran in numerous verses, that Allah subhanaw taala has already protected the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam no one can be little the station of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no matter how hard they try because a lot houses in the foreign war a foreigner

00:01:51--> 00:02:32

like the crop, we have raised your station. Allah xojo tells us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his honor, his religion, his Sunnah his practice is protected. Allah who are similkameen a nurse Allah says Allah has protected you from all of the people in NACA finacle. Mr. Has in we have protected you from those who wish to mock and ridicule you in Nishan E. Acha, who will absorb the one who criticizes you because some of the scholars of Tafseer said that this verse in Surah tokota was because some of the orange and the disbelievers used to say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be without descendants because he had no living son. He will be cut off in terms of

00:02:32--> 00:03:11

his descendants. Allah says in Nashua and he alcohol obter the one who criticizes you, they are the ones who will be cut off because there is a greater form of being cut off. Then the cutting off of not having sons being cut off from the mercy of Allah from his reward from his pleasure being cut off from Allah azza wa jal that is a greater calamity than any other type. A large soldier tells us in Surah, Al Hassan, in the livina you will do and Allah wa Rasulullah those who harm Allah and His Messenger, Lana homologue of in dunya, while ophira Allah has custom in this life and in the next word delivered either the mahina and Allah is prepared for them a serious tournament. So Allah

00:03:11--> 00:03:45

subhanaw taala has told us how we protect the honor of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam if you want to protect the honor of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and there is no doubt that it is a cornerstone of our religion, to love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and to love him more than we love anything else, with the exception of our Lord subhana wa Tada. It is a cornerstone of our religion to defend his honor, but there is a way in which I will show you or tells us to defend his honor. You want to defend his honor, learn about his religion. You want to defend and respect the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam follow his Sunnah. And so you have the extreme of

00:03:45--> 00:04:25

April you also have the extreme of love, because that love can take you beyond what Allah azza wa jal has legislated what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Taurus and it opens up a door when you love in a way that Allah azzawajal hasn't told you or commanded you to love. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it opens up a door, no matter how slightly, it opens up a door towards innovation towards misguidance Toshi upon coming and chat and taking something which may be innocent at first glance, and to take what is innocent and making into something which then is a problem for Muslims. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his own lifetime wouldn't allow anyone to raise

00:04:25--> 00:05:00

him above the station that Allah azza wa jal had given to him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught the companions better than anyone else, because amongst those companions, or his wives, and amongst them or his children, and amongst them are his closest friends. And amongst them are people like Abu Bakr on Earth, man and it are the Allahu anhu and people who were there from the moment that Islam began, some of them all the way to the end of the year long run when you taught them how to love him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he taught them the meaning of respect the meaning of honoring the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he wouldn't allow he

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

At the first instance of someone coming, and appending that skill of changing what it means to love and honor the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wouldn't allow it in his lifetime. So why then do we allow it after his death? In what is collected in the Muslim of your man Mohammed, the hadith of Abdullah bass, or the Allahu anhu man? He said that a man once came and he had a conversation with the Prophet sallallahu send them and during the course of his conversation, he said, Masha, Allah who was shipped on messenger of Allah is Allah wills and as you will, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam majority attorney, the law he NIDA ballpen Masha Allah Who have you made me a

00:05:37--> 00:06:14

partner with Allah, that you said as you will as Allah wills are my equal to him, rather say as Allah wills alone, and the man isn't there, except with a feeling of deep and passionate lovers all Muslims have for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but because he didn't understand the meaning of that love, how to use that love how to control that emotion of love. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam corrected him. And what is clicking Sal Bukhari another example, in the hadith of a robot has been tomorrow with rhodiola Huang Ha. She says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting in my house one day, and they were young girls were reciting poetry,

00:06:14--> 00:06:50

speaking about the companions who fought and were martyred on the day of butter. And one of the girls in the poetry she said, Well, Finn and a bee Yun, yonder, Murphy Hardy, and amongst us is a prophet who knows what will happen tomorrow. He knows the unseen. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stopped her didn't think she's a small girl, she loves me, she's trying to honor me. She doesn't know any better, he stopped, and he said, letter Polina Hakata, will only come upon in, don't say that about me. But continue to read the poetry that you were reading before. Even with our young children, we need to make them understand how to control those emotions. Because left

00:06:50--> 00:07:27

unchecked, they cause problems, they cause problems, and they bring more evil sometimes they do good. And what is clicked in the hadith of nscp Malik robiola, one to further elucidate this point in the Muslim remember, he says and what the Allah wants with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and a group of people said to him, son, Allahu Allah, you will sell them. You are the best of us and the son of the best of us, the leader amongst us and even son of the leader amongst us, and that is true. The Prophet said, Son, Allahu Allahu wa sallam, Toluca, Polycom say what you're saying, because it's true. He is the leader of mankind. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the best

00:07:27--> 00:08:04

of mankind sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and from the ways that we show and manifest our love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a man his name is mentioned. We don't let it go and check but we say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that's a manifestation of love. But the prophet then said, Son, Allah when he was sending me gave us a warning, because he understood that even though that is deeply passionate, passionately felt love for the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam It is so easy to overstep the boundary, to take it from love to a form of extreme love that isn't legislated in the Sharia. Paulo kokkola come see what you're seeing. While is the hurrian nakoma shavonne but only a

00:08:04--> 00:08:42

shavon misguide you, because those people who then claimed that they love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam want to manifest that by celebrating the day or an event, they can easily take that small thing, and then it becomes a an act of innovation. It becomes the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can answer our doors, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can give me a child, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can grant me wealth or give me a give me cure for my illness, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can see and hear and he can close things from that. What is the hurry under coma? shaytaan but be careful, because otherwise shavon will mislead you. So what we

00:08:42--> 00:09:17

see therefore in the Quran, and the Sunnah, is the balance that our religion gives. There is a way in which we love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we manifest our love. And there is a way that we defend the honor of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And even when we dislike something deeply and wrangles us, there is a way that we show how the anger that we portray the anger because of the way that it is legislated in the Sharia, US Allah subhanaw taala that it keeps us all safe that Allah xojo protects us from the crops of shavon and that Allah is they'll just keep steadfast upon this religion. And he guides us to that which a large soldier loves and is pleased

00:09:17--> 00:09:27

with barakallahu li walakum phlebotomy was one of our newer yakushima female and it will hikma up all the hair that was offered Allah honey welcome what is every Muslim in the Muslim infrastructure? We know all our photo Rahim.

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

So we load from the de la salatu salam ala rasulillah bada he was talking to a woman who Allah who seldom at the Sleeman kathira loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a cornerstone of our religion but Allah azza wa jal tells us the way in which we love him subhana wa tada the way in which we show our love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or in quantum to he Boone Allah have to be Rooney.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

We've come a long way of

00:10:02--> 00:10:41

saying that if you truly love Allah, then follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and allow will love you in return forgive you for your sins. Why am I takamura sufa Hello, man Hackman who Finto that which the messenger gives to you then take it and that which he tells you to stay away from, then stay away from it for an hour Bikila umino nahata Yaki McAfee Masha rabina home and nobody will know they will never believe until they make you the ruler the judge in that which they differ over a large xojo tells us in the Quran how to love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the companions understood this better than anyone. And if you look at the example of the

00:10:41--> 00:11:15

lives of the companions, or the Allahu anhu, how they showed their love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam how they manifested that deeply felt love or not just someone who they have heard about someone that they read someone that they believe in and that they accepted the love because it is a part of their Eman, but also someone that they lived with someone that they ate with someone that they traveled with someone that they fought alongside sallallahu sallam, when you see that the greatest manifestation of the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to learn what he brought us and to follow his practice and his sooner. The Prophet told us on illawarra he will sell

00:11:15--> 00:11:52

them that the day of Monday is a special day. He said because I was born on that day. He was born on a Monday. How did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then celebrate that fact and that event, he would fast every single Monday of the year. He would fast every Monday. That's the way he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made that connection. So to take something that may even have a basis in the Sharia for a day or a place or a time, but then to take an interest in her in a way that isn't mentioned in the Sharia is incorrect. You love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam follow his Sunnah. Follow his practice, pray, the way he prayed fast. The way He fasted, have your character

00:11:52--> 00:12:26

the way that he exemplified his character sallallahu alayhi wasallam be happy with what made him happy, be angry or what made him angry, and act in a way that Allah subhanaw taala will be pleased with you. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this is the message of this hotbar to learn about it sooner because that is the way in which we love our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we all know and I want to leave you with this because it is a good reminder that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that from the greatest rewards of showing our love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is that on your multi Yama we'll be able to be reunited with him, we will

00:12:26--> 00:13:00

be united with Him, and we will drink from his pond sallallahu alayhi wasallam the water of which is sweeter than honey whiter than milk more frequent than must whosoever drinks from it will never experience test again. But in order to drink from it, there is a condition. That condition is that you followed his practice for a long while he was still him during your lifetime. Because for those people who will come on that day, wanting to attain that reward, wanting to be united with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam many of them for the first time. But they didn't follow his practice. They didn't follow his study or they don't understand what his sooner was pleased him or

00:13:00--> 00:13:32

displeased, immoral, legislated and legislate. Those people will be driven away from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that is the meaning of love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam escolares xojo on the simplicity of Friday that he makes us from amongst those who truly love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that it gives us understanding in our religion gives us the ability to follow his sooner whereas Alonzo God shows his forgiveness and mercy upon us as Allah subhanaw taala to lift this disease amongst our midst, and to protect us and our families. We ask Allah azza wa jal to show his blessings upon us and our communities and to safeguard us from the

00:13:32--> 00:13:36
