Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam limitless ocean of sacrifice and endless seas of compassion and never ending struggle calls all of humanity rather all of creation to be obsessed with him to love him. This was a love that made stone speak. This was a love that caused 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 was a love that to humbled lions and made them stop in their tracks and allow me to elaborate on each one of these. We said that this was a law that made stone speak Muslim in the rates on the authority of January we know somewhere that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu

00:00:52--> 00:01:36

alayhi wa sallam said 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 said Imani come on messenger of love that caused stone to speak inanimate objects would continue making their voices heard in His presence. And with the companion he said, I myself was present on a particular day when we were sat in a study circle with the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and in his hand were pebbles and then the pebbles began

00:01:36--> 00:02:18

to glorify Allah. So we heard the sounds of the pebbles speaking abogado said in that gathering was Abu Bakr and Omar and Osman and Ali and all of them heard the voice of the pebble See, Subhan Allah Alhamdulillah in the hand of the Prophet of allah sallallahu it was a love that caused rocks to speak. It was not that cause tree trunks to weep, most of them know right on the authority of Jabiru and Abdullah that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to give the hope or the Friday Sermon next to a tree trunk, he would mean on it as he was delivering his son and then a man from the unsavoury and in other duration, a woman from the unsavoury they said to the Prophet sallallahu

00:02:18--> 00:02:59

alayhi wa sallam 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 on the line, away from the tree trunk, he began to speak the narrator jabbered. He said, the tree trunk began to scream at 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 trunk, and he hugged it.

00:02:59--> 00:03:09

And he kept it there in his arms, the narrator said, it began to move on. And it began to inhale rapidly like a child does when his mother is calming him down.

00:03:10--> 00:03:51

And he stayed there until it quieted, and then he turned to the companion saying to them what that was all about. And he said to them, it was crying, because it missed hearing the remembered when it was standing on I was standing besides it, in another narration, which a diary, Mina writes, it adds to this narration and it said, he said, I swear by Allah who possesses my life, 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 messengers of Allah honey who was sending was no longer standing next to it. And so he instructed the companions to cut down the tree trunk and to bury it

00:03:51--> 00:04:29

as if to say that the grief it went through was so strong that the best place right now would be six feet under Subhanallah love that caused trees to weep love that cause trees to move from their places. Do you ever he said, we were traveling with the messenger, some Allah Allah he was setting up to we arrived at a 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, and I was following him carry a container of water. He looked around to find anything which he can cover himself with. He couldn't find anything. So he looked to the right side of the valley, he saw a tree by herself and

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

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, follow me by the permission of Allah subhanaw taala. He said, When therefore the tree began to pull itself out from the soil, obeying him following him like the animal that is obedient to its master, holding the hand of a

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

Tree and walking with it too. 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, 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 him. And then he got to the middle of the valley. And then he said kava me by the permission of Allah. So they began to cover him the leaves and the branches to he was nonvisible Javid, he said, I realized that I was looking, I 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

00:05:34--> 00:06:14

walking towards me, he had relieved himself and the two trees have returned back to the two ends of the valley law in the law, love that cause trees to move from places and that wouldn't be the first nor the last time that this would happen. Ya know, Maura, 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 humanity husana to a center 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 out from the earth and walking as if it

00:06:14--> 00:06:53

was a human being till it got to right in front of him. And then it covered him. He was asleep and he saw our toes and then the tree removed itself and went back to its place when he woke up and he's allowed to sit down. 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 happen. He said to me I this is not strange. He said this was a treat and sought permission from Allah subhanaw taala to give Salam to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and so Allah gave it permission a tree is yearning to give Salah to the Prophet of Allah Allah. So how can we become stingy brothers and sisters are Nazis Hola. Hola. Hola.
