00:01:35--> 00:01:44

one of the cornerstones of our religion as each and every single Muslim knows is the love and the respect that we hold for our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:01:46--> 00:02:29

Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran in surah to nor woman UT la hora Sula, who shall La Jolla tepee for Ola ecohome. Alpha is on those who obey Allah they obey His Messenger and they fear Allah and they are conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala than they are from those who have achieved and attain success is part of a religion, that we obey the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we give them precedence over our own desires and our own whims, our wants and our own preferences. And just as we do it for the loss of Hannah hautala then by the commendable large religion in the Quran, we likewise have a similar approach to the sayings and the teachings of our Prophet

00:02:29--> 00:03:09

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam respecting and loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we see in the lifetime of the companions or the Allahu anhu Manchu Marine, during the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He dictated that they used to show him physical respect. They wouldn't stare at him directly for the vast majority of the Senior Companions, they wouldn't look and stare at him directly. They wouldn't raise their voice over the voice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we wouldn't proceed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in speech. And as the shehryar continued, and As the years passed on, different etiquettes became embodied within the companions.

00:03:10--> 00:03:49

The Companions, for example, wouldn't argue and dispute in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They wouldn't ask him many, many frivolous questions that will there was no need of to the extent that some of the companions used to say that we would await the arrival of the Bedouin Arabs to Medina, the Bedouins who lived in the desert, who would once in a while come to Medina and they would learn about Islam, or they would come to the profits on a lower hourly will sell them and they would ask questions, the companions would await for them to come, so that they could listen to their questions and that they could speak to them. Because the companions were told by Allah

00:03:49--> 00:04:32

subhanho wa Taala lattice Allah Anisha in took delicata sukham don't ask many questions, because if they become apparent to you may be difficult for you, as the companion, one set to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the Hajj, the pilgrimage, our Frequently army Rasul Allah, is this helps this pilgrimage and obligation upon us, me and you, every single Muslim is in an obligation upon us each and every single year. The Prophet sets on a low while he will sell them. If I were to say yes, now. It would become an obligation while I'm a stock item, but you wouldn't be able to fulfill that question. And then he said, sell a low and he will sell them. So leave me alone, so

00:04:32--> 00:04:59

long as I leave you alone. Meaning I tell you what you need to know. If you don't need to know more. I don't go into the detail. Don't ask me those questions. Because if it takes place if I say yes, it becomes Cherian. Every single Muslim, from that time to today would have had to make each and every single year, not just once in a lifetime. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Ramadan. He started to play turabian with the companions in congregation.

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

The companion saw that he was playing, he stood behind him, they played in congregation. That's the basis of our sadhana today within Ramadan. People play throughout our weekend congregation, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam established it as a practice. But then after a few nights he stopped, want to come out and play with a companion. So they said, O Messenger of Allah, why the companions is to enjoy playing behind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no one was cited the Quran, no one lead the prayer like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, because I fear that if we continue to do it in this way, it will

00:05:37--> 00:06:04

become an obligation. And it's a difficult obligation that you have to pay taraweeh each and every single night. Not everyone's able to do that. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and a lot in the Koran. They established these etiquettes amongst the companions, during the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is how you act towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is how you respect and you love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:06:06--> 00:06:44

But after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam most of those issues are no longer present. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam isn't physically alive, that you can go and approach him in a single way or a different way, that you speak to him in a different way or in a certain way, those issues are over. But there is one element of the etiquettes that are largely established within the Quran, towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that lives on. And it is something that just does the companions did 1400 years ago. For me, I knew what applies today as well. And that is how you behave towards the Sunnah. And the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu

00:06:44--> 00:07:22

alayhi wa sallam. He says, sometimes we have this disconnect. We understand the role of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we understand that we need to love him, that we need to respect him that we need to sacrifice for him. But we think of it in a very physical sense. When his name is mentioned, we say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But sometimes that's all the extent that it goes through. But when it comes to listening to his teachings and following them, when it comes to actually finding out what those teachings were in the first place, we searching and learning, what did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam do and see, what did he leave behind for us as guidance?

00:07:22--> 00:08:11

This is where we fall short. Even though for us today, 1400 years later, this is the greatest way that I will love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is manifested, manifested in the way that we follow his teachings. Allah subhana wa Tada. He alluded to this in the Quran when he said, all in kuntum to hit bonala fat to be Rooney, como la jolla, la Koo back home. En la la, la, la La to la hora soon for interval lo for in a la la caffine say to them, oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If you truly love Allah, then follow me. Meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah will love you in return, and he will forgive you for your sins and allies of forgiving, Most

00:08:11--> 00:08:51

Merciful, say to them, a be Allah and obey His Messenger. This is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam instilled within his companions, because he knew that our time would come when he would die, and he will leave this world. But in order for the Omen in order for the Muslims to continue after his death, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is the most integral and fundamental part that they need to understand. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the way you approach his teachings. So when you meet the average Muslim, someone tells us that they read a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they give it to you in its correct understanding the way

00:08:51--> 00:09:29

that the scholars and the companions understood that narration that they tell you, this is part of the simnet your approach to that issue, determines your love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. How often do we hear that his brothers and his sisters, for example, they're told about the beard, they're told about the hijab and the Gillette ban, but they have an adverse reaction to these issues, for whatever reason, perhaps it's a deficiency in a man perhaps is a personal issue, whatever the problem is, but they will find an excuse or a way out. When we as Muslims are told about the prophets and allow you any issue, it will be spective of how way too small that issue is.

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

We as Muslims need to understand we need to accept that this is the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I may fall short. I may not completely follow the Sunnah of the prophet or sell them. I may not perform everything that I should and act the way that I should. But I'm not making excuses. It's not because it's not the sooner or perhaps it's not the sooner or maybe this is what it's the sooner. That's my personal issue. I can't fulfill that sooner. The problems with me, not with the sooner but

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

When we transfer the problem to the sooner when we say there's a deficiency in the sooner when we say that there's a problem in the way that the sooner is, then that is attacking the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala is attacking the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. When we begin with practices that have no basis in Islam, we're saying that we don't respect and love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we don't adore and respect and adhere to his Sunnah, for whatever reason, because there's a deficiency in them. That's not the approach of the Muslim. So the Muslim is the one who when they approach these issues, like the companions used to route the Allahu anhu

00:10:37--> 00:11:14

mentioned Marian, when they were told that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something or did something. And the companions like each and every single person, one perfect, not one single companion encompassed all of the sooner they were companions, who were very knowledgeable companion to others used to say that they had nine tenths of the knowledge of Islam, but no one knew everything. No one had everything. But when you look at their approach to the son of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. That's what distinguishes them. That is where Larissa will chose them for that noble task of preserving and conveying this religion. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:11:14--> 00:11:30

sallam passes away, Abu Bakr rhodiola when he becomes the Imam of the Muslims, the halifa one of the final acts that the prophets on a low while he will send them dead before his death, was that he got an army to go and fight the Byzantine Roman Empire in modern day sham.

00:11:31--> 00:12:11

At the head of that army, he placed a companion by the name of Osama Ignazio of the Allahu anhu to be one of the youngest companions that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had Osama was the leader. But then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away, the army was yet to leave Medina. Abubakar becomes the de facto de la Juan, and the issues begin the problems the difficulties the obstacles begin. So the Senior Companions they come to Abubakar and they say, oh Abu Bakr. We know that the prophet SAW Selim had this army ready to leave and they're ready to leave. But the situation has changed. We have problems and issues that we need to deal with. Don't leave Medina

00:12:11--> 00:12:54

defenseless, by sending out the greatest number of warriors and Army soldiers that we have to a faraway land. It will take them months to reach them month to come back. Keep them here until things become steady. Things will go back to normal. And then you can send them if you so please, Abubakar adiala one, and this is an initial one of those similar issues where you must act in a certain way. abubaker couldn't meet he had, he had the ability to say yes, I see that the benefit is in a or b. That was his white as the halifa. But he said to the companions, that I would never untie a knot that was tied by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even an initial like this. I'm not going

00:12:54--> 00:13:06

to untie something that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded, that army will go as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and they went and they were victorious, and they returned to Medina.

00:13:07--> 00:13:51

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam de fathima are the Allahu anhu, the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she came to the Khalifa. And she said, Oh Abu Bakar My father died and he left some month wasn't a great amount, but it was a small amount of wealth that he had. I want my share inheritance. I want my share Abubakar Viola one responded and he said to her rhodiola one that I heard your father our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the prophets of Allah don't leave behind inheritance matakana Sadako that which we leave is charity. The no one inherits from the prophets of Allah, and it's an authentic hadith. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:13:51--> 00:14:29

that no one can inherit from the companions. So he said to fathima, therefore you have no inheritance. She wasn't happy. She didn't know this. She was expecting something. But Abubakar Viola one heard the Hadith, he knows the Sunnah. He's not going to give preference to the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even though she's one of the most beloved people to him over the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his son. The examples are many and time is short, because in today's football, we're shortening the hotbed praying early. Because our brother Hamlet, he chose the center manager of this mystery his father passed away, and his Genesis at 115 a central

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

mystery. So we're going to stop early and pray so that those of us that wish to go and I would encourage you to go and pray that we can go and make the janazah. But the point of this hookworm, what I wanted to impress upon you today is this issue and there are countless examples amongst the companions, literally than anyone else. That when it comes to this, the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the statements of the apostles Solomon's actions, what he left behind for us, our approach to that sooner is a great

00:15:00--> 00:15:20

testament it is a proof to our love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam whether the love is true, or whether it's a claim that we make, but we've yet to fulfill it truly and deeply within our hearts vascularization that it gives us the true love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the ability to follow his Sunnah. barakallahu li walakum Suna

00:15:41--> 00:16:20

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah while he was talking to a woman who Allah who seldom at the Sleeman kathira, about Allah subhana wa tada in Surah. To know he speaks about this phenomenon that would take place, and he speaks about it in the context of the hypocrites, because the hypocrites in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam are those people and therefore it is a treat of hypocrisy to be like this. They were the type of people who if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something that suited their desires. It was in their benefit. They saw some materialistic gain from it, they would accept His commandments. But when the Prophet

00:16:20--> 00:16:35

sallallahu alayhi wasallam would command or see something and they weren't happy didn't suit them wasn't something which which meshed with their desires, then they would reject it. A large religion says Oh, no, Luna Bella, he was a Sunni, while Tana

00:16:36--> 00:16:57

amin homi Bhabha, donek, one Allah, meaning from amongst the hypocrites are those who say we believe in Allah, and we believe in His Messenger, and we obey them, but then you will find a group of those people will always turn away. Why? Because what the profits on a low while he was selling me saying doesn't suit them. So Larissa was in sales, what your call

00:16:58--> 00:17:13

to La himadri. Nene. If what the professor seldom said was in their whites, it was for their benefit, they rush towards it. But if the profits on a low hourly will send them something that they don't like, the turn away, they don't like it. A few.

00:17:15--> 00:17:51

So a law says, Is there a disease in their hearts a little terrible? Or do they have doubts about the validity of the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I'm Johar for now you in your head for low while he masuleh? What do they think that Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would ever be unjust towards them. And that's the thing. If you don't accept the sin of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, either there's a deficiency in the amount which there is, if you don't accept the signal, or you have doubts, that the profits on a long wire early you will sell them on what you bought isn't actually the whole truth is not something worthy of submission

00:17:51--> 00:18:30

towards or you think that there is some injustice. You think that what a law would say what is Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say, there's a problem minute, those are the three options that allow gives in the Quran, Allah, Muhammad Ali mon, rather they are the people of oppression. So therefore, yes, we all have mistakes, no one completely follows the sooner we all have shortcomings, but those shortcomings are because of our weakness within ourselves. Not because of anything wrong with the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when we're unable to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for whatever reason, then we should have a time

00:18:30--> 00:19:09

when we reflect upon ourselves, we knew our our renew our resolve to go back and follow the son of the prophet SAW on the log while he was selling them. But all the time acknowledge that this is what the sooner is to know what's true, please, and to know that it is one of the two signs of loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was colossal panel Todd and explicitly that allows origin shows His mercy upon us and upon our families and upon our parents and our children must allow God forgives all of those from amongst our community who have passed away, including the father or brother it just was colossal panel tada that he gives us the ability to see guidance for what it is

00:19:09--> 00:19:23

and to see it and discern it from falsehood was colossal panna cotta Allah that He blesses us in our community that a large social keeps us safe and protects us from the traps of shooting porn somehow not because the phone was around when other Muslim
