Are we true followers of Allah and His Prophet? Do we put their guidance and judgment first? Before our preferences? In this khutbah, we examine the consequences of following the divine guidance or ignoring it. We also see how the companions and the pious predecessors honored the words of the Prophet and placed them before anything else.

wakulla be the item balada akula gonella tintina all praise and thanks belong to Allah the Most High, the Most Merciful. We thank him and we seek His help and aid and asked him to forgive us and we seek His protection from the evil of ourselves in the sins that we commit. Indeed home several lie guides, no one can lead astray. And whomsoever Allah leads astray, no one can guide and ever witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah alone, that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his slave and messenger. Indeed the best of speech is the book of Allah. And the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the worst of religious
matters are those that are innovated. Every religious innovation is a bit every bit is misguidance. Every misguidance will be in hellfire.
it is well known from the religion of Islam, in fact in the heart, and the consciousness of every Muslim every believer,
that one's happiness lies in what are lost upon what Allah revealed. And in what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had communicated and commanded.
It is from the foundational beliefs of every Muslim man and every Muslim woman to know and to believe that the guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala is better than any other guidance. And then the judgment of Allah subhana wa tada and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is better than any other judgment. And we live and we should live according to that belief. And not only should we believe that in our hearts, but our lives should reflect that type of belief.
And it is so evident in the Quran and so many verses in it and so many is Allahu Allah, you Latina woman of Guru Mattila Nur, Allah subhana wa tada is the ally and the supporter of the believers he takes them rescues them from darkness and into the light. That is only through Allah subhanho wa Taala that you'll be able to escape the darkness of this life.
into the light that Allah subhanho wa Taala will guide to, and he says about his prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam way into to do and if you listen to him if you obey Him, you will be guided. And Allah subhana wa Taala had made
submission and surrender to the judgment of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which reflects really in essence, the judgment of Allah subhana wa Taala he had made the surrender of that judgment, a sign and the condition of a man. What he said follow what a big lie, hacky McAfee Machado rabina home, Somalia, Djibouti and pushing on para Jemima alberico you Salim Otis Lima, Allah subhana wa tada swears by your Lord by the one who created you, they're not gonna have any man until they make your Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the judge
the one who will finally decide what is right and what is wrong FEMA shadowbane Omu they have disputes among them disputes at the time of the profits of the law to send more disputes up today
that they will take this matter to you and make you the judge. And after you declare that judgment, how do they receive it like you do for the day up unforeseen part of democracy they find no discomfort and you're hiding their hearts with whatever you have decided what you send them with a slimmer and outwardly they completely submit to it. So on the outside and the inside, they completely submit to Allah subhana wa Tada. And notice Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had said, and a lot also had made it a sign of hypocrisy, to turn away from the judgment of Allah and the judgment of His Prophet sallallahu. It was not to honor them, not to respect them to be pleased with
anyone else's judgment. besides Allah, his judgment and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, for instance, when Allah subhana wa Taala says, Alan Tara in a Latina is omona No, ma'am and aubema en je de la Councilman public Yuri do not yet.
He says Do you not see those who claim that they believe in what had been revealed to you and what had been revealed before?
And they desire the Kahoot anything that opposes Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Kahoot they seek the judgment of instead of your judgment instead of a judgment of Allah subhanho wa Taala there is a claim with their with their mouth.
Then Allah subhana wa tada says, after after that,
we'll see but don't be mad at him. So what will be the case? What How will they react? What will they say? What will they do when their disaster will strike them
because of that choice that they had made, because of leaving the judgement of a loss of Hannah with Dan and His Prophet sallallahu wasallam and not really translating that not accepting it and translating that into their own lives. What will be their case when a loss of Hannah with Allison's a disaster and anyone who seeks other than Allah and His Prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam is actively seeking and importing a disaster into his life. And we'll find the effect of that sooner or later.
And this is like the other area that he livina you Hakuna and Umbreon to save on fitna or you see Bahamas Abu Talib, those who digress
and divert and reject the command of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam let them be aware, less something terrible happens to them fitna a fitna that all overtake them, or either a great punishment. Either a great punishment will come to them.
Or a fitna that will leave them confused after they had a man they will lose it and all that is a consequence to leaving with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had commanded they should be clear in our lives she should be clear in our hearts should be clear on our families in our communities that when Allah subhanho wa Taala says something the matter is settled. When his prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says something the matter is settled and no other judgment no other opinion no other desire should contradict what Allah subhana wa tada and his prophets of Allah Allah you are telling them had said
and we want to take your two examples from the Koran to show you the consequences. One of compliance and the other one of in compliance.
The first one
the last two is from Surah Al Baqarah.
There is a reason why they have been revealed because the AI that precedes them, Allah subhana wa tada says in it into Duma, tianfu Tsukamoto who has it can be healed. Whether you disclose what is inside of you, or you make it public. Allah subhanho wa Taala will hold you responsible for it.
And on the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I want you really to imagine put yourself in
when they heard this
and the Tacoma that they had was such that they really took this as seriously as we should. Allah subhana wa tada is gonna hold us responsible for everything on the outside. That's manageable, but he also on the inside.
So they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they say prophet of Allah, this, we cannot bear. This is something heavy. We've been commanded to pray with cabana, to give charity to fight and all of that all of these things we can perform. But with this, I have to be responsible for everything on the inside and outside profitable a lot that we cannot tolerate. That's too difficult for us. And see here the response of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then their following response.
turiddu nan Taku kumbhakarna Latina Latina and publikum Sammy on
the Hulu Samia Nirvana pulumi nine Dr. b. Now come on, is the you want to be like the people before you? Who said we hear and we just obey, nose say we hear and we obey.
Everything all of that we believe in it all of it has come to us from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And there is really here, great wisdom and what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying is saying it had come to you from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Even though now you don't understand it fully, you cannot carry it fully. But if you believe in it, if you submit to it, Allah subhanho wa Taala will relieve your burden will give you an exit will give you an explanation. Just believe in it and submit to it. So they say lm am an OB Howard l that we had seen at the home when they believed in it, and their tongues surrendered to it. And they said as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam said Allah subhana wa tada revealed the last two is from salted Baccarat and are also doing well on Zee daily.
And in it, Allah subhana wa Taala explains or relieves them of the burden of the thought that everything that they think on the on the inside Allah subhana wa tada will punish for then you can live alone Epson Illa Allah subhana wa Taala honor them with this ayah honored you with this ayah because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, these two eyes were revealed to me from a treasure beneath the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala. No other prophet of Allah had been given this and the reason why this was revealed is because the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam listened to the prophet and they said, We believe in we obey, even though they didn't
understand at that moment, how this is going to play, how are they going to live with this idea, but Allah subhana wa Taala took away their stress and took away their burden.
Contrast that with the people of Musa alayhis salaam. When Allah subhana wa Taala commands them
through the sacred land, and find the people who are in it.
And the people who sadly Salaam hesitated and only they hesitate. They rejected the direct command to Busan, Allah subhanho wa Taala.
They say Hussein Ophea Coleman Jabarin. This is the almighty people inside and as long as they are inside, we're never going to enter we're never gonna even attempt to enter that city or comply with a loss command.
And interestingly so Pamela, two of the people who have emailed interject in the middle corner, Amina Latina, California Hakuna La, La La, La, La Moneda. Two men who fear Allah subhanho wa Taala say to them, just add to that door, just comply with the last command because if you just do it, you're gonna win, you will defeat them. In other words, they were telling him just comply, just open the door just enter Allah Subhana Allah will give you of his support
of his guidance
of patients of power, what will make you prevail against those that you think are more powerful than you? Allah Subhana Allah will raise all of these hurdles and you will win, just comply.
And what was the reply?
Either vantara buka foccacia in una vida. Musa Elisa Moosa you want to fight you on Europe, you go and fight are sitting right here. Now moving,
what was the consequence
and they have the opportunity to enter the sacred land and be part of it and live there. In Parramatta Nalini Marina Sana.
forbidden for them to enter it for 40 years, yet
they will wander the desert, not know where they are be lost every day for 40 years
and that is the consequence. compare these two, if you comply with what Allah subhanho wa Taala once Allah with his prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, You honor both, Allah subhana wa to Allah will give you the best path, the best route, the best outcome and solution like he gave to the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And if not, and you reject it, and you favor your own opinion, intellect,
somebody else's opinion, Allah subhanho wa Taala will leave you to yourself and in that you will be in this proverbial desert, wandering forever lost until you come back to the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala through Allah subhana wa tada Wanda.
And when you see
how the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam used to honor everything,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to do used to say used to command
that once they hear that he had said something it would be the final
judgment in the matter.
For instance, of a warrior of the Allah
if it's not if it were not for Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu Allah will not be worshipped on this earth.
And he said it twice and he said it thrice. So the person listening and listening to him, he says, How can you How can you say this? If it's not for Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu Allah, who would not be worshipped on this earth? How could you say this? He says, I will tell you, because the prophets of Allah when he was in them before his death, prepared the army whose sermon was eight, and he died before sending it.
And then abubakr now with Thor's face with rebellion and apostasy in the Arabian Peninsula, and he had a decision to make I keep the army of Assam about to protect Medina to defend against the rebels or I send it like the Prophet sallallahu send them before his death has intended it be sent. I do this right do that. So he decided I'm going to send it
and they said to me, they asked him Yeah, Abu Bakr How could you do this? And we don't feel safe in Medina, outside of Medina people people are rebelling, rejecting Islam. How can you do this? He says by Allah will not untie anything that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam tied, I will not assemble an army that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had assembled to the extent that even if I see the dogs, chasing the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Medina, I will not do such a thing. Me To the extent of reaching such insecurities as I will, I will send it and what is the consequence of complying with the within the sin of the prophets of the law you send them. They said
that when he sent the army, and we tried every locality that saw the army said, How did not that they were strong and sure of themselves, they wouldn't send such an army at this place. At this time, better not rebelling, better listen, but to submit better surrender to the authority of Medina. And a lot of people were saved from apostasy and rebellion simply because of Rebecca rhodiola, who
sent this army as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had intended for it to be sent.
That's why a warrior or the Allahu anhu said if it's not for Abu Bakr, radi Allahu Allah will not be worshipped on this earth because Arabian peninsula, right Al Jazeera would not hold Islam, if not for his wife.
On the low honor, there are many examples in the life of the Allah.
He wants health of a plague
in a locality in a sham, and they did not know what to do, should we go and enter or not? And they continue to discuss with each other and the first thing that the honorable hapa would always do. Is it in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala? It is there's something about it in the book of Allah, or did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam say something about it? And he continued to ask until someone told him I have a hadith from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam I have a headache. And when he wrote that Hadith, he said, settled, this is it. We go, we're going back, we're going back, we're not going to enter because that's what the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was saying, if you
hear about the plague in a land, don't enter them land so we're going back that was it. There's no discussion afterwards.
Here are the Allahu anhu. Once he kissed the black stone, and he said in the morning,
I know that you're a stone, you bring no harm and no benefit. But I saw the Prophet sallallahu wasallam kiss you and that's why I'm kissing you. He said also about a woman walking softly or swiftly in the tawaf in the first three thoughts. He says, well, in our run, when the man was saying Orion heavy machinery, keen to makalah Rasulullah.
He says, Why are we doing it and the first three thoughts walking swiftly, he said, this is something that we did at the top of the overall for DBS, so that the non believers would see us and know that we're strong. Why do we continue doing it today? Then he said something that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam has done. We're not going to leave that. And another example so panela, just to show you. In another example, the programmer wrote the law on who was passing on his way to the masjid in back there was this nice water spout. And I wonder where those times when he was passing, you know, it sprayed some water on him. So he went and removed it. And that was proud that means
that belonged to Allah best for the allow under the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So our best came to him and he said, we removed my Misa. You know who that person would put that there with his own hand, was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So what did he say? He says, indeed, you're not going to have a ladder to reinstall, that means that except my body come and climb on my body, and you put it with your hand back while you're low. And
in another incident, also Subhanallah he hurt somebody.
You see here, the love and the honor that they gave to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he wrote somebody named Mohammed when he was a halifa. And somebody else was chastising him, rebuking him, or Mohammed, you this and your Mohammed or that. So he called him and he said, I don't want to hear the name hammered. being insulted because you're carrying it now From now on, you're going to change your name, your name from when I was.
This is called your family. Everybody else was called Mohammed in your in your area, we're going to change your names, so that they be something different.
Then one of them he came to him and he said, Do you know who named him Hamad? It was Mohammed sallallahu. Cinema gave me that name. He says, then that is it. Standard leave, I'm not going to change anything that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has done. Both of these instances Express and reflect the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and how much they honored him. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make us of those who love them, and to honor him throughout their life. akula polyhedra was de la de welcome festa who
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Hamdan Catherine Pavan Mubarak config. Also Lee was sending Monaro Sunni Mohammed, while he was suffering he was in love.
Who is the judge in your life and in my life? Is it Allah subhana wa tada and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or someone else? And we're not talking about one, two or three matters one, two or three areas, but all areas in all matters
was the Shafi or the Allah who
was telling people a hadith narrating a hadith. And then the person next to him, he says at the whole movie he, he says, Do you agree with it? Or do you adopt this? And he said that all the allow Rahim Allah, whatever the it says, What do you see me? What do you think I am? Am I coming out from a non Muslim place of worship? Do I look like a non Muslim, that I have a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and not adopted another bracelet.
And he said also in another regeneration that resembles this he says, If I narrate to you an authentic hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And I don't take it, I make you witnesses that I have lost my mind that have gone insane.
And it was widespread subpoena law about him from him from Malaga, honey from Hamburg, all of them that they said something similar. When you hear when you will have gotten an authentic hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I had said something that is different that is contrary to it. Because it's shafia himself said, he says there is no single human being, but he forgets there is no single human being that who may miss some of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So if I say something if I do something that contradicts authentic sin that has come from him, Leave it. Leave what I said leave what I do.
Done and follow Him, follow him. And that's why one of the chefs here have written a book nanocoating emammal will probably be the Sahadeva Madhavi, the meaning of the mcconaughy man. And what he said, he does the Hadith when the Hadith is authentic, this is my method. This is my man.
And in that book, he says,
the higher it is, imagine, if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is right there, and he's standing right next to him. And he says this hadith Are you going to not apply it? Are you going to not follow it? Or you who be who Oh, you who believe or you claim that you love Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Are you going to leave something that he had said for somebody else's opinion, no matter how honorable this person is, but is there anyone like Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Are you going to leave what he had said for anybody else? And are you going to leave it now? For your own opinion for your own desire for your own intellect? sipan Allah, the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam had foretold
more than 1000 years ago, well, maybe I shouldn't combat it. Daddy. Tila and Kathy are the ones who will get to live after me you will see much disagreement, much disagreement. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wasn't only diagnosing what's going to happen 100 years after his death 200 years after his death, but he was diagnosing what is happening today. You look around you and you will find among Muslims themselves much disagreement.
And what did he prescribed some alcohol he was synonyms so that we can rescue ourselves from this disagreement so that we can find the truth. What is it for a commission It was so nice to qualify Rashida and Medina mean bad you want to avoid this disagreement. You want to know what the truth is. You follow my son, that's the boat Safina to ninja the boat that will save you. It's like they say it is like the boat, or the ark of Noah Allah His Salaam, whoever writes it will be saved whoever is left behind drowns, and this is the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that if you take it, if you adopted you will be saved. And if the owner Mohammed Salah, adios in them would leave,
would leave honoring other people before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and what he had said, if we as individuals really give the hokum to Allah Subhana Allah and His Prophet sallallahu wasallam and not to our own desires, not our own weaknesses, not to our own intellect Subhanallah sometimes, you bring or we are presented with something clear from the Quran, clear from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And what do we do? Do we submit we try to find excuses, oh, this is too hard.
Or this doesn't fit right now. Or this cannot be done. Oh, I am thinking differently, or my desire is different. And we make this desire of ours, our intellect of ours panela the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and they are far more intelligent than we are today. did not understand fully that I but they believed in it Allah gave them that understanding. We today
employ a faulty intellect, lack of wisdom, a faulty intellect to reject the Quran to reject the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in part at least, and yet we claim that we have submitted to Allah surrender to Allah that we are Muslims. We are not Muslims if we do this as they as they were Muslims at the time of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and that's why we live in confusion. That's why we live in conflict. That's why we cannot get along because we have not decided all of us all the amount that our judges Allah subhana wa tada and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have different judges. And if we have different judges, if I'm an individual I will put my own
likings Subhanallah even those among
the ascetics even they said you need the IMO law said both when Bill kitabi was in our knowledge, how you reach a loss of panatela it's not just based on dreams is not based on cash when was done though concepts and stuff like that whatever you feel like then you do both and btw a sinner it is the parameters of what we do how we reach Allah subhanho wa Taala according to the Quran and Sunnah. The one who doesn't he continues, the one who does not memorize the Quran does not write the Heidi lemmya Taka he is not a knowledgeable in Islam
is not an example he's not a model.
So it doesn't matter what we may think what we may believe
because Allah subhana wa tada
has said in the Quran for item
Have you seen the one who has taken his desire as his Lord? And it has here they say they want a anila Kiba he says whatever he desires something he does it.
When that desire becomes your Lord becomes your judge becomes your email.
And Allah subhana wa tada had sent Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to rescue you from the slavery of your own desire and liberate you from it to the slavery of Allah subhana wa Tada. And if you're not a slave to a law, you are a slave to someone who's inferior to Allah subhana wa tada and they will torment you because of it. So escape from that slavery and ask yourself,
Am I a follower of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam consider it the next time you see something authentic from him. And some other people have said something different, but this is authentic from him. Which of the two you put first, which of the two Do you adopt? Which of the two Do you believe what he said some allottee was in him or someone else? And then you will understand whether you are a true follower of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam whether you truly love him? Or is there something else that we need to work on until we reach that stage? So we ask Allah subhana wa tada the Most Merciful the Allah make us of those who is their final judges what you have said in your book, and their
final jet is what your Prophet sallallahu Sallam said and then your son and your Allah gave us our give us an open hearts that are happy and comfortable with that judgment, that seek that judgment and apply it and it's like, and you're like, guide that Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do what you love, and away from what you hate, and make them while Mohammed Salim said I'm happy with your judgment and the signal the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he I mean there are much disagreement and fighting between them Mohamed salatu salam ala unite them upon the truth, your book and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam make all of their hearts like the heart of
a single human being. He Allah make their hearts like the hearts of a single human being. unite them upon the truth. Give them power against their enemy. Give them on we're on this earth era Blimey well we asked you to forgive all of our sins and the sins of all of the Muslims he ALLAH forgive all of our sins he Allah cure you all them this is of everybody around me. You're lucky you're the illness of everybody around me all I take care of our debts. Yeah, like take care of our distress. Yeah, like care. Take care of the trouble in our life. Yala. We asked you that we love you more than anything else than anyone else. He alone we asked you that we love your profits a lot more than any
