All praise and thanks belong to Allah the Most High, we thank him, and we seek His help and aid and we ask him that he forgives us. And we seek His refuge from the evil of ourselves and then sins that we commit. Indeed, whomsoever Allah guides, no one can lead us astray. And whomsoever Allah leads astray, no one can guide and a bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah alone and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a slave and messenger.
Indeed, the best of speeches, the Book of Allah and the best of guidance is that of Hamlet, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the words of religious matters are those that are innovative. And every religious innovation is a bid on every bit is misguidance and every misguidance will be in hellfire.
You mean had to come? hotair akuna have balay him in? Why did he Why did he win NASA Ames.
One of you does not believe
until I am more beloved to him than his parents and children and all other people.
Now who said this
is Mohammed sal Allahu Allah UID he was sending them who is telling us and instructing us that we do not complete our Eman
until we love him and cherish him more than we do love our parents and our offspring our children, no matter how clear they are to us, and all other people.
And the odema have said that messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not negate an email of someone. Unless that thing that is missing is compulsory. It's an obligation.
In other words, it's not just voluntary, that we should love Mohamed more than we love our parents and children and every other person, but it's an obligation on us. That is a free word to meet Allah subhana wa tada without this love, we meet him with something missing from our Amen.
And the question to ask ourselves is that is the love of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in our life that great is he present in our life to that extent, and if not, how can we start then increasing the love of Mohammed Salah you sallam, and one thing that we will emphasize in today's whatever is that the mention of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam specifically in the Sunnah and Salah upon the Prophet sallallahu wasallam will increase our love of the Prophet
and he can look at how other people behave and react to those that they love to understand that there is a connection between love itself, and how often they remember and talk about the people that they love. The more that you love a person, the more that you will talk about that person. The more that you will be worried about that person, the more that you will mention them. Some people when they love movie stars, they will have their posters at their home. they'll follow their news
on Twitter, or Facebook, or whatever online site they will follow their news I will talk about them frequently. Some political leaders, even some religious leaders have some movements of some religious movements. They will instruct or sometimes it happens
voluntarily, sometimes they will instruct their followers have a picture of me in your house, in the streets wherever so that you will frequently remember me when you look at that picture. And so the love of that person will slowly be implanted in their hearts.
That's a normal reaction, that there's a connection or even a cause and effect between how much you remember a person and how much she loves that person.
And Allah subhana wa tada instructs us in the Quran.
He says, in a lot how Amanda equateur who use aluna? Allah nebby Yeah, you have Lavina musala Allah He was certainly mutaz Lima. He says, Indeed Allah and His angels, say salah and Salaam upon and Nabhi all you have a man say Salah, and Salam upon him. And before we explain this I and the significance of this ayah we want to understand something significant. What does it mean?
And what does Salaam mean? Because we frequently repeat this but do we understand what salah and salami do we understand what it means when it comes from us. And what it means when it comes from Allah subhana wa Tada.
Now, in the language in our Arabic language, Allah is to
remember this, so there is their equivalent. That's why we call the Salah that we do five times a day. We also do it and we call it Salah. It's, we call it Salah, because it's contained in it. In fact, all of it is
in every movement in every utterance in Wasilla, you're asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for something
and you're asking Allah subhana wa Taala protection from something. So in the language so that is
Allah subhanho wa Taala since Allah upon the messenger, indeed he sends Salah upon us
in the same Surah Surah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Hola, hola, Hola, como en la casa Julio Rijo camino buena de la know, what can I be more meaning or AHIMA? It is he who says follow upon you and so do the angels so that he will extract you to extract you from darkness and into the light and he was merciful with those who have Amen. So what does that mean when it comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala Bukhari Rahim Allah and his records from Abu Ali are him Allah who is a tablet that says select from Allah is praised.
Select Amina life and
so so now when it comes from Allah Subhana Allah is not the doer.
But it's the outcome of that.
It's the outcome of that door. its opposite rotation, it's praised its elevation of status, that Salah from Allah subhanho wa Taala select from the angels of Allah subhanho wa Taala is do I uninstall
ALLAH forgive him, or Allah guide him and so on. And so that from us, is as the language explains or illustrates it's due to.
when Allah subhanho wa Taala says in that ayah Indeed, he sends further and Salaam upon you. It means when it comes to Salah that he is sending out invitations and praise upon us when we deserve it. He's elevating our status when we deserve it. What kind of Bill momineen rahima yet to whom Yama el hona who Salam for the believers, they're breathing when they meet Allah subhanho wa Taala is Sadam della Hama, john Karina and he had prepared for them a generous reward. What is salami?
Salaam in the Arabic language is safety.
When you say that someone is selling or selling, it means that he is safe or she is safe from harm, from disease from illness. So the greeting is similar meaning that they will receive a greeting that will save them from everything that they're afraid of.
That they will have no fear at all. Once they receive that greeting. They have no fear at all.
So when we censor them or when Allah subhanaw taala censor them upon the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. What does that mean? It means that he saves the messenger some A lot of us he was sending them and his dour and his followers and his reputation and his religion from every harm. That's what saddam is. And that's what Salah means when you send Salaam upon the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that is Allah save him.
from everything that may tarnish his reputation, from any attack coming from any attack or save his religion, save his followers save his family. And when you send Salah upon the messengers of Allah while he was sending, what are you doing? You're asking Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah increase his status and elevate him in Paradise and you will see in Sharla perils of this when we explained the virtue of Salah that is what you are doing.
So let's go back to the first area because there is something very significant in is that should propel us to remember to make Salaam Salaam upon the messenger, Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying this upper inhabitants of the skies, the angels of Allah subhanho wa Taala are sending salah and Salaam upon the messenger Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala extending salatu salam upon the messenger. So Allah wants this lower Earth, the lower inhabitants of this existence to mirror and to replicate and to emulate the higher inhabitants the angels in sending salah and Salam upon the messenger so that all of creation would be praising the minutes of Allah Allah He was sitting down and all of
creation would be sending Salaam upon Mohammed sal Allahu Allah you and he was
and there's a connection here that we should see that when you're doing it the answers of a loss of kinda what that are doing it and then when you're doing it, you're connecting with Allah subhanho wa Taala who is doing it.
But when we also examine the virtues of this salah and Salaam, you will find something that is amazing.
One of the virtues is that if you say it once, a lot will remember you 10 times
the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says masala halaya wahida sallallahu alayhi Bihar Ayesha
it says the one who sends Salah upon me once Allah will say Salah upon him 10 times
a lot 10 times will mention you in front of the angels. Allah 10 times will exalt you and elevate you and that is not all.
All of our who be ash Raja Raja waka Bella Hoopa has an app
and he will elevate him 10 levels and he will write for him 10 good deeds and he will forgive him 10 cents for once. For if you say one time sallallahu wasallam Allah subhana wa tada does that to you
and what is greater than having Allah subhana wa Taala remember you 10 times for just saying it once.
And the messengers of Allah or and the angels of Allah also remembering
for he also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in America Tila to salata, salatu salam ala Manu Sunday I pray for you okay the abdomen dairy cow. It says the angels of Allah will continue to say salah and Salaam upon the one who does that for me. So do as much of this or as little of this as you want. That is it is in your hands. You want the answers of a lot around you to remember you and to make them for you make dua for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as much of it as you want, you will get from the angels
and it is also a connection
to the messengers of Allah Allah He was
and we should try also to think about that visualize that contemplate it whenever we are making it
he said so Allah Allah you it was seldom
he says in any law he mela can smudge me a
favor and me too. Hahaha immune Allah phenomena. De La La Kalia Muhammad
Musa de la.
He says, Allah subhana wa tada has an angel and he has given him the names of all of creation. So when I die, he will be standing at my grave. So when someone says salah and Salaam upon me, he says oh Mohammed, this is so and so sending salah and Salaam upon you.
You will be mentioned to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he said also ma'am in hiding You certainly more La la la la.
La de Sena says no one will say salam upon me. Except that Allah will return my soul back into my body so that I will give the replay of that salon. So for you.
For you, Allah subhanho wa Taala will return
Del Sol of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam into this body, and he will know your name, and He will give the Salaam back to you.
Imagine this connection will live in connection to the prophets of the law do
we did not get to meet him. He did not get to know you. He did not get to talk to him.
But now you do actually have a chance to send something to him that he will know it came from you to send something to him that will cause your name to be mentioned. And for him to talk back to you. You will not hear it.
But you know it's there.
And it will also determine how close you will be to the messenger sallallahu annual.
He says in nowlin Sep omal piano como la sala the people closest to me, on the Day of Judgment most worthy of Me on the Day of Judgment are the ones who most frequently say Sala answer number one.
proximity to him will be dependent on how much you say that.
And he says also in another Hadith in a minute, buddy uh yeah. Yo yo Ma,
D for insalata controlable aleja. Kula Juma
Malaya Salah, it says have your best days is Friday.
So stay as often as you can salah and Salaam upon me for that will be presented to me on Friday. And the ones who will be closest to me are the ones who say the masala and Salam upon
right. So emphasize that point, that proximity to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And we have to understand that when we say it, sometimes we might be saying it with tongue alone, and the mic might be absent, and the body might be absent. But the more that you say it, the more that the mind will be present and the more that that body will be present. And so slowly, slowly, slowly, you'll become closer and closer to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not only now with tongue,
but also with mind, also with heart and also with body. So this is a way for us to build our love for the messenger and also our obedience to the messenger and our proximity to the messenger. So a lot of you and he was in them.
It is a path to paradise. He says also solahart He will send them men nesea satalia
it says the one who forgets so now upon me or for me, he will forget the path to paradise,
he will not find the path to paradise.
And finally in this first hauteville
it is a way for us also to cleanse ourselves. cleanse ourselves of this evil character evil characters especially stinginess boho,
boho can be in money
before it can come in attitude.
Refusing to help others and pleasing to be good towards others. Because actually is not limited by one attribute or part of us. It's a disease that settles inside the heart. And the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us
to give during the hula Musa de la the stingiest of people
is the one who may find mentioned in front of him, he does not say Salah upon me. That is if you want to avoid that character of whenever you hear his name, you see some value early we'll send them why it recognizes the virtue of Mohammed, it recognizes the work of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And it tries to repay him for some of what he has done. And it doesn't cost us anything. And if we do this, it helps us to purge ourselves of evil character, especially that of stinginess. Apolo holy harder stuff to live
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Handan. Catherine Pavan Mubarak and free will suddenly we'll send him Why not Assouline, Mohammed Ali he was it was in them.
So well, you know, one of the Allahu anhu once came to
messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said
he also live in New York to South Africa Gianluca means fidelity. And remember, here Salah, in the language is do
so is asking the messenger he is saying, a messenger of Allah He Allah so Allah indeed Are you make a lot of do.
So how much of the art should I give to you should I assign for you
on a machine, he says as much as you want.
So, what it says, it says one quarter of my drive should be for you. So, the messenger says, Masha inzicht of Ohio law, it says whatever you want, and if you do more, it will be better for you. He says,
He says half of it, he says Machito, Ohio luck, he says, whatever you want. And if you do more than half it would be better for you. He says,
it is two thirds of my data, I will just get to you. And he says mat[???]a whatever you wish. And if you do more, it is better for you. He says for jalota kosala t Kula. He said Should I make or give you my entire
Should I give you my entire draft? And he said, even took for hammock while you follow them book. He says then you will be relieved of your burdens and your sin will be forgiven.
And in another narration, even took some hammock I mean me dunya will ask her, then you will be relieved of the burdens of this life and then the next.
So saying Salah, and Salam upon the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a cause for us. The more that you say the better is a cause for us to have our sins forgiven. And for how to have our troubles go away.
So if you do have troubles,
if something is haunting you, if something is sitting heavy on your shoulders on your heart, say Solange Salaam upon the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam understand what you're saying saying and mean it
and keep saying it.
Saying that Allah and Salaam is a cause for our daughter to be accepted.
That's why it's from the etiquette of our to include it in our
overview of the Allahu anhu says, I do our open venous summary will not deny Saddam Hussein had to suddenly lnav casola law when he was in it says Do I suspended between heaven and earth it does not go up. It does not travel upward until you say sada and Salam upon your messenger.
So I cause for not to be accepted is to forget this or to neglected. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam once said, Amen. He made
but without any introduction to it, you need an introduction to
so we heard him sink, some do. And he said Arjuna had that he's impatient.
had to come for you met je de la la familia, Sol de Allenby, sumeria Salida, Masha,
when one of you wants to make, love him first, praise Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says Allah upon the messenger, and then you make your dua. So there's an etiquette there's a process, you begin with praising Allah you choose the names of Allah subhanaw taala, his attributes that fit the type of data that you want to make.
And yeah, have heavily or one who gives Give me your man your honey, or one who has mercy Have mercy on me, and you say Salah, conda messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then you go into your
same salon Salam upon the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a cause for a lot to bless our gatherings.
He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
please brothers move as close as possible
and fill as many gaps as you can.
He said so a lot of you are Silla. Ma'am, imagine it's a common Middle East. Layer Coronavirus, Mentos Mala Mala you saloon Alana de him in como la tierra inox for insha, Allah who insha Allah for Allah home.
He says, no people sit in a gathering and they do not have mentioned in it the name of Allah and say Salah upon the messenger, except that they leave with a minus with a shortcoming with a deficiency.
So if Allah wills He will punish them or if he wills He will forgive them.
Now think about our gathering
Doesn't have to be necessarily a religious gathering, you get invited, or people invite you. You sit with your friends or we sit you sit with your family. Now think about it is this thing going to be for you or against you on the Day of Judgment, you want to last panel data to bless it. You want to last upon our data to protect it from envy. You want to pray Allah to protect it, from gossip, from backbiting, from things that are laid away at your since right?
So what is a way for you if you're conscious of that what is a way for you to protect it from all of this and for it to count for you, not against you? You remember to remember our last name saying bye Subhana Allah Bismillah Alhamdulillah just mentioning Allah's Name and saying, Allahu Allah, Mohammed V, that is enough. That is enough for Allah subhanho wa Taala to write that gathering
as something that is for you or not against you.
Now I want to briefly mention what are the times when we should remember the messenger sallallahu that he was in and you can remember him at any time, but some of the times where we can mention him obviously in sada.
In fact, it's an obligation on us to remember him in the saga. Right? And in response to that Iona Allah commanded the people to make sola and Salam upon him, the companions of the Prophet came to him and they said, O Messenger of Allah, we know how to make Salam upon you. How do they know? Because in the Shahada, you say Salaam olika, you have to be your ally, right? So you say that, so they knew that and they used to say it, but they said, How do we say something upon you? Then the messenger told them that the shadow that you know, along masala Allah, Mohammed, Mohammed
Ibrahim, in the middle Majid, robotic Allah, Mohammed, Ali Ali, Mohammed, Ali, Ali, Ibrahim, a Nick, Mohammed Ahmed or any other narration that you have memorized. So this is the most complete the fullest way of saying salah and Salaam upon the messenger civil law, he will certainly or you can say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or Allahumma salli wa sallim ala Muhammad and envigado avocados today, including both of them. So one place where you have to mention his name is in the center, also after the
messenger So a lot of you it was send them all just translate this, he says when you hear the more than say, or repeat what he says, and they make and then make fun for me after he is done, and then asked a lot to grant me a lucila because it is a station in paradise that will only be suitable for one of the slaves of Allah. And I hope that I would be that person. Whoever asked a lot to grant me a lucila will deserve my intercession.
So remember that after the event, when you come into the message and when you leave the message in
the message the Prophet sallallahu wasallam instructed us when one of you enters the masjid with him say salah and Salaam upon me and say along with Danny abre automatic
or LA open for me the gates of your mercy so when you kind of come to the masjid with the right foot Allahumma salli wa sallam Allah Mohammed, aloneness, Danny,
when you want to leave, is there something that you should say? Yes, you leave and you put your left foot out, and you say Bismillah Allahu alayhi wa sallam Allah, Muhammad, Allah.
Allah I asked you of your favors, in another narration alone Nasim, numina shavon Allah protect me from the shavon
mentioning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa He will send them of course does not have to be restricted to any of these times.
We should not forget also sending salah and Salam upon him on Fridays. As we have explained, it is the best day of the week, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam will receive a report of those who had set salah and Salam upon him on that day. So make sure that you put your name in that report on that list.
the mention of the prophets of Allah Allah you earlier was Salaam and his love
should not just come as a reaction.
Whenever there is a malicious attack against the prophets, a lot of it was in them. Whenever people speak ill of him.
Whenever people try to detain him, we react.
But is that reaction enough?
Is it enough of a reality in our life for the lower level of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to beat up to that level?
Is it just reactionary love?
Is it just reactionary response or should our love of the Prophet be 100
stint in our life that keeps increasing until we reach an approximate halvah Sahaba used to look at him how Sahaba they used to feel when they mentioned his name? So how can we build this in our life?
How can we actually start to follow him not just pay lip pay lip service to it? We're followers of 100 we follow Mohammed, Mohammed but embody this, live this, how can we approximate this if we do not remember Muhammad every day, if we do not consider him to be an example, if you do not realize that he is better to us than our parents, and our children and anybody else, because everything that is good in this life
right? The best of things in this life had come to you through the agency of Mohammed Salah Holly you are you send them well, how so? Your parents gave you physical life. Mohammed Salah, tell him gave you spiritual life. Without Him you will be lost.
He gave you the Quran he recited it and through it, you know,
he gave you how to live and through his example you know what to do and what pleases a lot what angers Allah, you can lose your you can afford to lose your parents, you can afford to lose your children, but you cannot afford to lose Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So to be able to retain them, first of all, repay some of his favors upon us by remembering him often, and then realize that he should be our first example. We should go even more than our political leaders, more than our religious leaders, more than any other leader or example or a person in our life, and that cannot happen unless we actively pursue this as an object as a goal.
So I remind myself, I need to remind you, to connect yourself with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and visualize it. Whenever you say it allies remembering you, whenever you're saying that angels are actively remembering you, and whenever you Say it, say it. Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is informed, you have mentioned him. Now he knows your name, and he gives the lamp back to you. And that sweet enough in itself.
So we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala the most time to bless us at the market of those who remember employments often Allah make us of those who send salah and Salam upon Mohammed often, Allah make us of those who send salah and Salam upon the messenger, often, Allah make us of those who are closest to him. Allah make us of those who are closest to him. Allah make us of those who are closest to him, while I'm making him make him more beloved to us than any other human while I make him more beloved to us than any other human, while I make him more beloved to us than any other human.
All we ask you for all the good in this life and in the Hereafter, and we seek your refuge from all evil in this life and in the Hereafter.
While we asked you that you bless us and forgive our sins and the sins of our families and the rest of the Muslims. Allah we ask you that you protect all Muslims from all harm. While we ask you that you protect all Muslims from all harm. Allah we ask you that you protect all Muslims from all harm along mananas ethical hands Haleakala when I became
