troops in Al Hamdulillah Hina do who want to stay you know who want to start a funeral home we don't mean we'll be here when I tell a kid I really
when I will be lucky to Isla Muse Rudy and fusina when Musa yeah Dr. Marina me de la la medulla who am i You please
watch everyone La Ilaha illa Allah who definitely Dasha surely you can watch how do I know Mohammed Abu Hora su
a father, a counselor, a judge, a teacher, a warrior, greatest of all creation to however have set foot on the face of the earth.
These are some of the descriptions of the Prophet of Allah Muhammad Sallallahu.
Allah Almighty said to him very early in his mission, yeah, you have more deaths there, oh, you covered up.
Rise, what comfort on the rise and moon
and he would rise and he would warn and he would stand and he would teach and he will travel and cry and bleed and weep. And he would not sit down till Allah Almighty His mission had been complete. And the message of Islam had been delivered
until his blessed soul was ready to return back to Allah Subhan Allah subhanho wa Taala after 23 long grueling years of sacrifice and DUA and Jihad and patience and compassion and convey and sleepless nights and recovery from injury 23 of those years
and it got to a point where towards the end of his life, you wouldn't even have the ability to stand on his two feet when praying to Allah subhanho wa Taala because his fatigue tweet, we're unable to carry him.
And that is why Muslim the rates that our mother is in shadow the Allah Allah Allah would be asked the question
how can I never use Allah Allahu Allah, He will send them use Elisa Elisa, did you ever see your husband Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praying sat down? And she said, None Yes, bada Mahatama, who knows, after the bashing in that people had given him he was unable to stand.
It's the likes of this work ethic.
And limitless ocean of sacrifice, and endless seas of compassion, and never ending struggle that caused all of humanity rather all of creation, to be obsessed with him to love him.
And if you ask about the type of love that the universe had for this marvel of a human being, I say to you five statements.
This was a love that made stone speak.
This was a love that caused to tree trunks to speak. And to weep. It was a love that moved trees from their places. It was a love that caused camels to weep when they saw him
and it turns a love that to humbled lions
and made them stop in their tracks.
If you ask about some of the miracles which he came with alayhi salatu salam I respond and I say these are five from the hundreds of miracles that Allah subhanaw taala had supported him with an allow me to elaborate on each one of these, each one of these five
we said that this was a love that made stone speak. This Dear Brother Do you sister is not a mistake of a statement that you just heard, nor is it an exaggeration.
Most of them in the rates on the authority of Jabulani blue Zamora that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Nila Adi for Hassan be Meketa can and you can literally mean cobbly and Oberth in Nila RT.
I know of Iraq, in Mecca
that used to give me salaam greetings before I became a messenger. He said I know where that rock is, at this moment in time. Imagine before he became a messenger, a normal human being without prophethood or revelation. He would walk past a particular rock that rock would say to him, Somalia, or messenger of Allah.
Preparation from Allah so He knew something was about to happen in his life, love that caused stone to speak.
And that wouldn't be the only incident.
inanimate objects would continue making their voices heard in His presence.
Above the companion, he said in the law, shall he do
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fee. Putin was God he has a for Sabana Lhasa for some BACnet Hassan Fe ID. He said I myself was present.
on a particular day when we were stepped sat in a study circle with the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in his hand were pebbles.
And then the pebbles began to glorify Allah subhana wa Tada. We heard the sounds of the pebbles, speaking of Buddha said, in that gathering was Abu Bakr and Omar and Osman and Ali, an all of them heard the voice of the pebble saying, Subhan Allah Alhamdulillah in the hand of the Prophet of Allah Subhan Allah Ani.
It was a love that caused rocks to speak. What was the second statement we said? It was love that caused tree trunks to weep. This, again is no exaggeration, most of them know right on the authority of Jabiru bin Abdullah, that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to give the hobo the Friday Sermon next to a tree trunk. You can say it was around maybe, knee height or width, waist height, he would mean on it as he was delivering his sermon.
And then a man from the Tsar and in other duration, a woman from the answer, they said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would you like for us to build for you a member a pulpit like this, shall we build for you a pulpit so that you can sit rest speak to the Companions?
He said, Yeah, why not? So they built for him the pulpit so now he was no longer next to the tree trunk. The very first sermon he gave Subhanallah and I'll be away from the tree trunk, he began to speak the narrator jab it he said, For saw hatin Nakhla.
The tree trunk began to scream,
scream that we all heard, and this narration has come to us from numerous chains of transmission because it was a public gathering. When this happened, all of the companions, they heard this, it began to scream like a baby, who was very displeased.
So he came down from the pulpit, he went next to the tree truck, and he hugged it, Allah. He talked about the tree huggers, right? He was the first to hug a tree. Alayhi Salatu was set up, he hugged the tree, and he kept in there in his arms.
The narrator said, it began to moan and it began to inhale rapidly like a child does when his mother is calming him down.
And he stayed there until it quieted, and then he turned to the companion say to them, what that was all about. And he said to her, you said to them,
kind of tip key mean agilan decree and let the can at the stem. You're kinda Rasulillah he said Allah, it was crying,
because it missed hearing the remembrance when it was standing when I was standing besides it, in another narration, which a diary, Mina writes, it adds to this narration, and it said, he said, What are the NFC bat he I swear by Allah who possesses my life no longer alters him who? La Baca haka, you know, your mill chiamata Hosanna, Allah Rasulullah.
He said, I swear by Allah who possesses my knife, if I had not left my pulpit and hug the tree, it would have continued crying all the way until the Day of Judgment because of grief and sorrow. Now that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was no longer standing next to it. And so he instructed the companions to cut down the tree trunk. And to bury it as if to say that the grief it went through was so strong, that the best place right now would be would be six feet under Subhanallah
love that cause stones to speak love that caused trees to weep love that cause this is heading number three love that cause trees to move from there places.
This is a reality my brother, my sister, this is not Lord of the Rings. This is not something hocus pocus or Harry Potter. This is a reality than ERATION. I'm going to share with you now this is inside Muslim on the authority of Jabir ibn Abdullah. It's a very authentic narration it happened
January he said, we were traveling with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had done as Allah Allah word in fer till we arrived at the valley
that was so fragrant.
And the messengers of Allah Allah He was sent them needed to relieve himself to respond to the call of nature. He said, I was following him carrying a container of water.
And he looked around to find anything which he can cover himself.
If you couldn't find anything, so he looked to the right side of the valley, he saw a tree by himself and the other end of the valley there was another tree. So he made his way to one of the two trees, Jabba descent I followed him and I saw that he was pulling one of the tree trunks or one of the branches from the tree. And then he said to the tree, he spoke to the tree.
He said to it in Kadima, AB is the law follow me by the permission of Allah subhanaw taala he said, fun call that law who can buy your will machine lady you will find your car either who and therefore the tree began to pull itself out from the soil, or being him following him like the animal that is obedient to its master
holding the hand of a tree and walking with it till he got to the other side of the valley.
He got to the other side of the valley, he took one of the tree trunks one of the branches from the tree. He pulled it he said in Kadima, evening that follow me by the permission of Allah, it began to follow him. Now he's walking in the middle of the valley with two trees behind them.
And then he got to the middle of the valley.
And then he said into ima and then maybe if the law cover me by the permission of Allah, so they began to uncover Him. The leaves and the branches till he was nonvisible.
Javid, he said, I realized that I was looking quickly gave him my back, and I began to play with some stones waiting for him to finish and then I looked back at some point and I saw him walking towards me, he had relieved himself and the two trees had returned back to the two ends of the valley law in the law, love that cause trees to move from the places and that will be wouldn't be the first nor the last time that this would happen.
Yeah, Allah Nomura, another companion, he said three things I will never forget seeing in front of me happening with the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said one of them was a day when we were traveling with his family, he salatu salam, and then he was resting to camp. And when he was a sleep, a tree got up from its place and began to move.
Pulling itself out from the soil, ripping the roots up from the earth and walking as if it was a human being till it got to right in front of him. And then it covered him. He was asleep. Ali Hassan Artusi say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam my brothers. Every time you hear his name, say some Allahu alayhi wa sallam
and then the tree removed itself and went back to its place. When he woke up and he said not to sin. Yeah, love no more. He said to the Prophet SAW Selim when you're asleep. You won't believe what happened. X Y and Zed happened.
He said to me, I this is not strange. He said take a shower or tune is that rob the HA? began to sell Lima Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for added Allah He said this was a tree and sought permission from Allah subhanho wa Taala to give salaam to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and so Allah gave it permission. A tree is yearning to give salaam to the Prophet of Allah Allah.
So how can we become stingy brothers and sisters and not say it's Allah Allah Allah, Allahu Akbar.
A love that call stones to speak a love that cause tree trunks to weep love that cause trees to move from their places. Number four was loved that caused animals to weep upon seeing his radiant face and he stood out to us.
Imam Abu Dawood writes on the authority of Jehovah, that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once entered the garden of a man from the Tsar who own camels.
And the moment that camel saw the face of the Habib alayhi, salatu salam, it began to eat began to weep.
And so he made his way to the camel and he began to pass his hand over, it's temporary,
until it relaxed and settled. Then he turned to the Companions. He said, Mantra boo huddle EABL, who is the owner of this camel, one of the men from the unsought. He said, It's mine, a young man. He said, It's my messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he gave him an earful. He said to him AlFalah tuck in there, have you heard him behemoth in the team and like a cola who iya inna who Shakeela Joby Anika Tujia who who were to the table
he said will you not fear Allah?
With regards to this camel, which Allah Almighty has placed under your possession, the camel just complained to me that you are making him go hungry and you're giving him too many tasks Subhan Allah
you and I perhaps thought it was just
Sulayman allihies salatu salam whom Allah had given the ability to understand the language of the animals, Allah Jalla Jalla Allah who had given part of this to have our very own Habib alayhi salatu salam Subhan Allah and Allah
and finally we said this was enough that to humbled lions and cause them to stop in their tracks.
Have you heard of Safina what is the translation of Safina by the way? Do you know
ship? Yeah, so you have a companion nicknamed the Safina ship. His actual name is ice he is the one who was about to narrate the Hadith that you're going to hear now.
Which al Hakim record in his monster truck Safina His name is ice and there are other narrations to say he had different names. And he was given this name of ship because he had the ability mashallah to carry so many things during the travel the messengers of Allah I would load up on him he would say give me more and he would love to give me more he said Mashallah. It's like you are a Safina. It's like you are a ship. So his name became Safina and it became his favorite nickname as well.
I mean, this was a righteous man who grew up in the house of our mother who Musella may Allah be pleased with a young man.
He narrates that he was once traveling by sea.
Chemical, wala Hina had anemia. Fellini, rabadan Clelia
he was traveling by sea,
he said and then I had a disrepair in the ship. My boat that I was using, it fell into disrepair it broke, I was on the verge of drowning, I was holding on to one of the planks till it took me to the edge of a coast it was a jungle. I got onto my feet and no sooner had I raised my head that I can now see a lion pelting towards me to finish the game over this is his general.
So what is he going to say?
He's going to remember Allah Jalla Gerardo and then His Beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will say yeah, but Hadith father of harvest. This is one of the names of the lion in the Arabic language lion. The same as many things they have many names lion has noticed and 300 names in the Arabic language by the way.
I will hide his father of hadith is one of them. Haytham acid, lathe, hider, Hamza.
All of these are names of the names of the lion.
So he said I will have Anna Safina Nola Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, I will hide his lion. Another one of the names is a SWAT, by the way that's mentioned in the Quran. Being a squatter Abdullah Hadith. I am Safina
the servant of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said Subhanallah the lion stopped in his tracks.
Have you heard of anything like this before?
It stopped in his tracks.
He said he approached me very gently, and he began to nudge me with it shoulder.
I took the impression that it wanted me to go somewhere I was lost. So there I am, being pushed by the lion gently by its shoulder till it found might help me find the way out of the jungle.
And then it began to make very gentle noises as if to say which my interpreted interpretation, he said, led me to believe it was bidding me farewell. What did he say to our heart if I am Safina servant of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam He is recognized in the animal world that you know.
Not you know? Didn't we say that? His love was unconditional, and loved by the universe as well by the inanimate objects. What about you, dear brother, the sister will type of love should we feel towards him? Here we can ask a second question.
If this was the type of love that animals and stones and insects had towards him, what then about the men and women who saw him?
traveled with him? Who heard his recitation of the Quran and prayed behind him? What type of love must they have had SubhanAllah?
I mentioned to you a description or maybe a summary of the answer to that question by saying to you, it was a love
that caused them to compete over the water that would fall off his body when making wudu ablution.
and the one who said this was an enemy of the Prophet Muhammad Ali he salatu salam Do you know his name? His name was Ottawa enormous, oh, cafe Ottawa, he saw how the Companions behaved with the prophets and I sent him when he went to the other side to negotiate with the Muslims. He couldn't believe what he saw.
The ratio is in the Sahadi on the authority of Mr. Mahama. All why he said, after seeing how they behaved, he went back to the pagans. He said to them, they're not going to hand him over.
And let me tell you what I saw. He said, a comb all my people.
Will Allah He hola to Al MOOC, I have visited kings before.
overfed to Allah Kisara. Waka is are one Joshi and I have visited myself the Emperor of Rome, the emperor of Persia, and the Abyssinian King, I have met them myself while Allah however, by Allah. In the raw a too many come talk to your Halima, who was humble who will know your husband was humble Mohammed Mohammed. He said Nevertheless, in my life, I have never seen a community who honor their king, more than the honoring of the companions to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and then he elaborates upon what he saw. He said, Let me explain. Wallah he internal Harmon Mohammed and up to in our coffee, coffee, I had him Fidella can be what you heard what he said, even the spiritual
would come out of his fragrant mouth. Fragrant are my words he didn't use that he was an enemy, even the spittle that would come out of his mouth.
He would find its way to the handle the companion who would use it to walk wipe over his body and wipe over his face. How blessed they were how lucky they will Moloch Well, this is a Cassia and exclusive quality to Him and Him alone. Not your shake, not my shake only him Alayhi Salatu wa sallam he would wipe over his face, they would wipe over their face and their bodies with the spittle of the messengers, Allah Allah, Allah he was sending Allah has placed Baraka in that.
And then they said, I II, Ottawa, we're in Cana, we're in Amara Hoon, tada, Emery, and whenever he instructed them to do something, they rushed to fulfill the instruction.
What either at our academy Yakata Cinelli will do. And whenever he would do his ablution It was as if they were on the verge of killing one another. Fighting over the remains of the water. Were either kinda uncertain when they're hungry, and when he spoke, it was silence. They wanted to hear what he had to say. While not your head doing it in a in Nevada to have him in the hole. And not one of them.
Would look him straight in the eye. Not one of them would look him straight in the eye, because of the all the love and the respect that they had for him. Imagine have a look here on Omar and Sadiq. dwad. And maybe highly later on with their heads down, unable to look at the face of the Messenger of Allah Allahu Allah He was in because of the sheer respect and love and Rubel asked before he would pass away, he would say there is nobody on planet earth who I love more than the Prophet Muhammad Allah Allahu Allah He was sent them yet till this day. If you were to ask me to describe him how he looks, I will not be able to give you a description because I couldn't feel my eyes from
his beautiful face.
alayhi salatu salam
what type of love did the human beings have for him the Companions I'm not going to share with you now your brother, your sister.
narrations from time of ease comfort, when the AC is on when the heating is on when we're setting carpets, beautiful LED lights around us? No, no, I'm not going to share with you examples of love in those times of comfort that's easy to claim love. I would like to share with you perhaps four examples
during times of difficulty.
I'm sure you will agree with me that during times of war, for example, is when you see the true love that a person has for another when it's either your life or his.
Let me share with you these four episodes these four scenarios.
Scenario number one,
the Battle of better were the Muslims ready for the battle of battle.
They had left for travel with basic clothing, basic equipment, just about to hunt an animal. They were not going for war. And all of a sudden, without prior arrangements, it was the cutter of Allah. They find themselves squaring up to 1000 Men crack to their teeth with artillery
ready to fight Abuja hell and the rest of his team La Ilaha illa Allah, the Muslims did not want this.
And here the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam carries out a meeting
pre war consultation. He wouldn't impose his opinions upon other as long as it wasn't Quran or sunnah. It wasn't revelation. He was not there to impose his opinion on others. It's a worldly matter. Let us talk about it. This is war. So he gathered the Companions he said to them, she ulana Your nurse
What is your opinion?
You see the city
The situation that we're in
what is your opinion? Who would be the first to speak? Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allahu Anhu. And he would give a beautiful hotbar a beautiful sermon. We are with you till our last breath. And then Omar Ameerul Momineen would stand up and he would speak and give a beautiful sermon, no less beautiful than Abu Bakr saying, we're with you unconditionally. And then I'll make that even though Hannah would get up and speak and he said beautiful words that the Companions would envy him for Mashallah. It was still feast. Allah inspired him to say these words because Allah beloved, Salah Allah who is in need needed to ye those words.
He said, O Messenger of Allah.
In the Lima America, Allah Who Fernando mark, proceed to what Allah Almighty has commanded you to do, we are with you.
And we will not say to you like the children of Israel said to their Prophet Musa, go you and your Lord fight. We are staying right here. That's what they said to him. Go you and your Lord fight. We're staying right here. He said, We will say to you go, you and your Lord and fight we are right behind you fighting.
The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was happy to hear this. But once again, he said ashigaru Allah Yohannes give me your opinion or people. You'd think it'd be enough, right? You think he'd heard what he needed to hear? No. What was he waiting for?
What was he waiting for my dear brothers.
The opinion of the Mossad,
Abu Bakr Omar Al Mecca that this represents some of the companions, the mohajir on the immigrants, what about the Ansara? He hasn't heard from them. And he had made an agreement with them that if I need help from you, it's within your territory. They're outside of Medina now. So so he wants to know if if they have his back, if they're up for it.
This is life and death. They may not go home after this date, and many of them didn't go home.
Give me your opinion. Oh from the answer. Give me your opinion or people without specifying. Sad, ignore. I've recognized what the messenger SallAllahu Sena was hinting at and he was the first to realize it.
Messenger of Allah Subhan Allah when he was done,
I think you are indicating
an opinion from the outside.
Oh messenger of Allah allow me to speak.
Because I am Sadiq, no Ma. I represent the unsalted and they will not behave or speak before I do. Therefore allow me to speak on all of their behalf. Messenger of Allah prophesied to what Allah Almighty has commanded you to do.
Take from our money as you wish. Leave from our money as you wish. Make ties with whomever you wish. cut ties with whomever you wish, messenger of allah sallallahu ala he was setting them if you were to travel to bark hung down 500 kilometres away from Medina very difficult to rain. If you were to travel to bark, Rhonda, and we will be right behind you rather, if you were to plunge into the sea for war, you will find this right behind you in the middle of the ocean.
This was when the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became convinced that it is the correct thing to do. And Elijah legit Allah who will then send the army of the angels to support those believers because they deserved it. That's when love is expressed, when you don't know if you're going to come home or not.
The second scenario I wanted to share with you
is before the Battle of badger erupted, our beloved Salallahu Alaihe Salam is now imagine imagine lining up the lines,
making sure that his men are standing straight.
And with him was a stick.
And then he came across a companion called Zawadi because a year so why didn't because he had a bit of a belly going on.
And so he prodded him because he was stepping a little bit out of line.
He prodded him, he said to him is the winner because that is that we are so what stand in line, also word. So I said Messenger of Allah, you've heard me
And Allah Almighty has sent you has sent you with truth and justice. So allow me to prod you back.
Shortly, this is not the appropriate time to seek revenge. Leave it until after war, right? No, so I'd had a plan. Messengers on the law Heidi who sent him the imam of justice stood in front of Sawada and he said yes, of course. And he raised his garments. He said, probe me back. He uncovered his belly he said, prod me back.
And then so on pounced on to the body of the prophets, Allah Allahu Allahu wa salam
I hugged him very tightly and kissed him in the middle of his torso. He said so what what made you do that?
He said, Yeah rasool Allah He called the handler Amina Emery Mata Ferrara to an akuna. Yola Devi, an EMS surgeon de tyntec, messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
you see the situation that we're in, it's likely that we're not going to ever return home to our families. And so I wanted the last thing that I experienced from this life, contact with your blessing body SubhanAllah. Who thinks of that? What would it be thinking of shortly before war, I may not have been thinking of that. But these were the men and women who love the messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah Subhana Allah.
And then after the war,
and this is after the Battle of offered now a different battle. And this is the third scenario I wanted to share with you, to show you that it wasn't just the men who loved him, Ali, who salatu salam unconditionally, but it was the women as well. And they had amazing stories in this department, a woman from the tribe of dinar, even though he sham the rates, was given the news that her husband had been killed after a heart.
And she said, What happened to the Prophet of Allah Subhan Allah and
they said to her, we are very sorry to tell you that your brother has also been slain.
She said, What happened to the Messenger of Allah Subhan Allah.
They said to her, forgive us for giving you this heavy news on this day Your father has been slain. She said, What happened to the messenger of allah sallallahu?
They said at hamdulillah he's well,
she said, No, no, point him out.
Pointing out to me so that I can see him with my own eyes. They said Look over there. Over there. Can you see him? She looked. And then when she saw him, they heard her matter. Some words to herself. What did she say? She said could know mostly but in Bader Kegel. She said, every calamity in life is small, so long as you are okay.
Father, brother, husband, no husband to go home with the evening. If we're calamity is small, as long as you are okay.
That's why Allah chose them to be his companions. And Allah chose Allah Hamada. To the 1400 years after their quality, this is our quality. May Allah forgive us and inspire our hearts with true love for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The fourth scenario I wanted to share with you is something that happened after the Battle of God had subsided.
Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said today the blue rabbit go back to the battlefield.
And look for Saudi Arabia. We can't find him. Do you know Saudi Arabia,
one of the chiefs of the Ansara one of the earliest to embrace Islam, were recited no Robbia we can see him. So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sensei did with Avid go and look for Saudi Arabia. And if you meet him say to him, I say to him Salaam Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.
And so Zeytinburnu forbid he returns back to the battlefield of a hot imagine stepping over the corpses stepping over the bowels stepping over the ripped apart limbs, and the skewed appearances and the skulls and the blood and the flesh, all of it for the sake of the King Elijah.
We're lucky give them gender.
And he looks for Saudi Arabia until he finally finds him on the ground, heavily wounded, breathing his last his soul was threatening. He was not going to leave.
The booth habit leans down to Saudi Arabia and he whispers into his ear saying to him, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has sent me to you giving you Salaam and he said Kay if I tell you how do you feel?
Sad Nora BIA with a terribly weak voice response to say it by saying to him, what can the Rasulullah he's Allahu alayhi wa sallam Otto dally he said return to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the salam from me.
And oh Zaida would like you to convey a message to my people the Ansari Kula whom thou over Allah Karim mm Allah He, in Hulu's, in our Rasulillah, he will come. I don't
say to my people, the unsalted
that you have no excuse in front of Allah. If any harm touches the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whilst any one of you has an eye that blinks. Those were his last words. He couldn't continue and his blessed soul would return back to Elijah and that was his farewell message thinking about his
eacher thinking about the Imam of all imams in Messenger, Muhammad Ali, he's on how to wa salam Allahu Akbar ye all of this love now we ask, what was it that they saw in him that caused this obsession your brothers and sisters? What did they see? What did they hear, allow me to explain some of what they saw.
They saw in him a human being
who was a perfect embodiment of all of the values that he called towards. He invited them to be good people than they saw in him the best of them all. He commanded them to be brave.
And so he was the bravest of all people. You look at his bravery, you would think that Allah had only sent him to rearrange the armies to appoint the generals, to lead the warriors to strengthen the hearts of the soldiers when they were weak. Al Bara he would say, whenever the intensity of war would become severe, we would hide behind the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were Industrija I mean, let the you have EV and the bravest companion would be the one who would be able to stand side by side with him on battle, because he was advancing Allah usados he didn't feel that
he commanded them to be generous. They saw in him the most generous of Allah's creation, describing him like the wind that blows and scatters money. You're ugly, haha, I'm an actual fuckup spending on people as if he does not fear poverty. He was the king of his wealth, his wealth was not the king of him, his feet was not in his his money was not in his heart, his money was beneath his feet. This is where we make a mistake, dear brothers and sisters money did not manipulate him, he manipulated his money, where he sourced it from and how he invested it, to use his money as a vehicle to bring him to Jannah he was the most generous of all people, you would think that Allah had only sent him to
spend on the poor, and to pay the debts of those in need.
He commanded the Muslims to be compassionate and gentle.
You look at him alayhi salatu salam, and you would think Allah had sent him for no other purpose other than to Paris, a gentle caring hand over the head of the orphanage
and to support the widow
to give encouraging advice to those who are let down.
And to respond to the invitations of the downtrodden in society, and to eat from their food, even if it was about to go off he would not break their hearts and visit those who are handicapped and disabled. You would think Allah had sent him for no other reason other than to be compassionate and kind.
He commanded his companions to be worshipers of Elijah literally. So what did they see in him? A marvel of Allah Shiva.
A man who would first continuously pray at night continuously till Allah Almighty would say to him, take it easy on yourself.
A man whose feet would grow in size because of swelling and pain, whose skin would crack because of continuous solder, a man who would soak his beard and the soil beneath him and his clothes from his own tears, and his wife's would be patting the bed, patting the soil to see where the husband has gone
and their hands would fall on his feet. As he was bowing and prostrating to Allah Jalla Jalla goo in the masjid, they would say you are in one place and we are in another's worship.

This is why you love to him. This is why they loved him. This is why we love him brothers and sisters. Next, before we conclude, I would like to share with you
some of the statements made by those men and women who just missed him.
See, there are 400 or so years between us and Him. Yet when we hear his name, we feel that our hearts are about to break, we miss him so much 1400 years, I want you to think about a man who missed him by just one year.
Last year, the prophet of allah sallallahu sallam was alive. I missed him by one year, I could have been a companion and seen him. I will never see him again to the Day of Judgment. Imagine the pain. You see his hair left behind in the homes of his wives, you you meet his wives, you meet his some of his children. You see his clothes, you feel the walls of the house and imagine, imagine those who missed him by just a month. Those who missed him by just a week. Those who missed him by a few hours, they come into Medina to meet the prophet of God. They say

It's happened to JB he would say whenever the companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would remember him after he died. Their skins which Shiva and serenity who sure would fill the room
and they will begin to cry.
Imam Malik whenever he would mention Hadith teaching the companions in Medina, whenever he would mention the name of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the color of his face would change. And he would begin to lean forward as if he was injured.
And they would say to him, how can you experience this whenever you mentioned the name of the messengers, Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He said to them, if you saw what I saw you would behave the same. They said, What did you see? He said, I saw the great Imam Mohammed the Blue Moon carrier. Whenever he would mention the name of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a class, he would stop and cry and cry and cry had done our humble hotel, we would just feel sorry for him.
He was the Imam of all Imams, and the greatest of all creation, a man whom Allah Almighty had completed his outward and inward splendor.
Let's not deny it and bury our heads in the sand and pretend that outward appearance doesn't matter. It does matter.
And that is why Allah Jalla Jalla Allah Who decreed that all of the Prophets and Messengers would be upright, and would be handsome, and would be the fullest of men, physically speaking, and inwardly as well. Allah knows this is the nature of man.
He judges she judges by appearance. It is true that when you see a person who was beautiful physically, but when you see their bad manners, they look beautiful. They look ugly. However, when you see somebody who is beautiful in manners, and beautiful in appearance, then the circle of love and attraction is complete. This Allah would decree that all of the messages would be the finest of men.
And our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the finest of them all. A quick description of his appearance. How did he look? alayhi salatu salam. I share with you the words of those men and women who saw him
and you will notice that between the lines you read not just a description, but you read obsessive love.

Ali who stood out to a man whose face was rounded like the moon. His color was, as some have described was a Harvest Moon whitish with maybe a vanilla tint to it with a reddish tint as well in his treats. A man whose eyes were intensely dark and the whites of his eyes were intensely white so that when he was looking around, you know that he was looking at you. A man who was white, he was mouth was perfect, very wide so that when he speaks, he's clear and eloquent. There was no ambiguity in his speech.

It was the habit of the prophets that I send them when he would come out of the masjid the children would come running to him.
And so he would come to them individually and pass his fragrant hand over their faces one after the other. Look at the Rama look at the mercy. Jabra said and I was waiting and it was my turn. And he passed his hand over my face. He said I will never forget how it felt. the coolness of it can Nima Raja whom in the bar it smells as if he had just removed his hand from the bag of a perfume cellar. And he sought out too cold and Subhanallah HaNavi scented
and perhaps maybe we will conclude with this. The most remarkable description we have of him has come to us by virtue of a
of a woman. It's always going to be the case. But she was an old woman Alhamdulillah give her an excuse.
This is the name of an old lady called OMO Babbitt and Hosea
and this happened when the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was migrating from Mecca to Medina, Makkah had rejected Islam. He wouldn't sit idle, twiddling his thumbs, he would search the world to present the religion. No obstacle is too great for a Muslim when Allah is his Lord. And so he makes his way immigrating from Mecca in secrecy all the way to Medina. He had nobody with him by the way, with the exception to Abu Bakr, Siddiq and a non Muslim Abdullah he ignored a lengthy his guide.
They needed provisions. They came across a tent in the middle of the desert, they need to eat they need to drink something to help the wayfarer proceed. They came into the tent, an old lady called Obama at Imola to Jack, the strong woman who would help the Wayfarers.
They said to her on mobile, are you able to assist us?
She said My Allah I have nothing to offer you on this day.
And so a sheep caught the attention of our beloved of Allah Allah. He was at the back of the tent. He said, What about the sheep that I see at the back of the tent? She said, this is a very weak shape. The reason it is here is because it's too weak to go out and greens. It has no milk dried up years ago. He said do you give
me permission to try. She said Go ahead. So he went inside and this woman is observing,
He knelt down next to the sheep. And he began to make dua to Elijah and then did AGL. And then all of a sudden the other began to grow in size, filling with milk Subhan Allah, and he began to milk. And the first person who drank was the woman.
And then he gave his companions to drink, including the non Muslim.
And he left a lot of milk for the house. And then he was the last person to drink Alayhi Salatu Alayhi Salatu. He then took a pledge of allegiance. She took her shahada, she realized who was in front of her and they continued their journey to Medina.
Later on in their day and the day her husband Abu Muhammad comes back home and he sees this milk all over the place. So behind Allah, He said to move this goodness in his hair was milk where did it come from? She said Lau Allah He in the home Allah Hi, Linda Arturo Mubarak. She said no, no by Allah. A very blessed man passed by today.
She said give me his description or

And then she said as edge meaning finally arched eyebrows.
And then she said in samatha insalata for Ali he'll walk out even when he was silent Subhan Allah she is describing his silence as well. When he was silent, he was so dignified.

If a person was to say, figuratively speaking, I have a photo in my pocket of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I can only give it to you on condition that I strip you of the last penny to your name.

And you will go home with no mom, no dad, no brother, no sister, No wife, no children.
For what for a single glance at this photo. He said there wouldn't be men and women who will accept it.
That's the type of love that exists for humanity. He Salatu was Salam and which a lot of Muslims don't understand why we're so peeved off when they speak or depict him in ways that don't fit him money. He says
prove your love for him My dear brother, my dear sister. Practically. This is the true depiction of love not verbal service, or a day in the year or a night that you specify to celebrate him true love is extended all throughout the year.
And the best way to show that love is practically speaking financially show your love for him. By removing the business you know will be detracting from your relationship with him on the day of judgment and make it halal income even if you have to live on basic wage, one law it is worth it. One law it is worth it. Well Allah here to
