Aside from being praised by the prophets dreams, Omar was always complimented in the most remarkable manner by the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abdullah he knew he sham he said we were once sat with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then he had taken the hand of all medical hubbub and placed it within his. Omar said Dr. Rasulillah Hina. And Habu in the Yemen coalition in in LA FC O Messenger of Allah, I swear you are dearer to me than everything except myself. Here we must bear in mind that these words were words of honesty. Many of us claim unconditional love for the prophets of Allah Allahu Allah and he was sin, but our actions sometimes prove otherwise, or

00:00:44 --> 00:01:26

however, spoke candidly. And the response he received was just as candid. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam said to him Lawwell leadin fcbd He had that Hakuna had the lamb enough signal I swear by the one who possesses my soul, it is not until I become more beloved to you than even your very self, that is to say, you will not be able to ascend to the peaks of iman faith until I the Prophet become dearer to you than yourself. And so with no hesitation or at once responded for interval and then now it is our messenger of Allah wala healer and I have more ilium in Neff, see, I swear you are now more beloved to me than even my own self. And upon hearing this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:01:26 --> 00:01:27

sallam said and

00:01:28 --> 00:01:33

it is now Alma now that Eman of Omar was complete.

00:01:36 --> 00:02:15

Now given that emotions are not controlled by binary switches, it is a reasonable question to ask how Omar was able to bring about such a huge and rapid change within his heart. Imam Ellicott Bobby beautifully explained this and he says the love which one has for himself is instinctive but the love which one has for others is a conscious choice that we make. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not request from Omer the instinctive love has no one has control over that and almost first response was an expression of his instinctive love. But he quickly came to realize that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was more beloved to him than himself as the Prophet was the

00:02:15 --> 00:02:51

cause of his salvation from the harms of this world and the next and considering this are more pronounced his absolute love for the messenger not out of instinct but out of choice. In other words, all my recognize that his life in this world and in the hereafter would have been devastated, had it not been for the guidance of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In the same vein, we should ask ourselves, what would we have known about Allah had the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not endured the hardships of boycott and ridicule and ostracization and bleeding on the battlefield solely in order to convey the message? Which of Allah's names would we be able to

00:02:51 --> 00:03:28

invoke? What would we have known about Allah's attributes? Where would we have turned to during our darkest hours if we did not have his words? How cold and dark would the grave be without the light of prayer which our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us how terrifying with the day of reckoning be, had we lived in disarray without a criterion? And so it is clear that Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam should be more beloved to us than our own selves, because through him Allah has taught us how to avoid the misery of a godless life today and the horrors of an eternal fire tomorrow. Back to Omar the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once said about honorable sutra

Hey JB what you got to sell to Mohan nama.

In fact, the Prophet sallallahu

00:06:23 --> 00:07:02

alayhi wa sallam once said located about EBU la Cana Omar if there were to be a prophet sent after me he would have been Omar, how can we Muslims possibly find inspiration in any contemporary popular personality, the majority of whom are yet to offer their Creator a single prostration when we have the likes of Omar and others from our history, of whom we are an extension times where Muslims take role models from sporting or musical arenas rather than personalities from their own magnificent heritage or sad times. Indeed, if the lives of all of these so called stars are combined, their value and achievements would fall short of a single hour in the life of Omar, are they inspired by

00:07:02 --> 00:07:21

angels? Are they carriers of truth that's placed on their tongues and hearts? Are they guaranteed paradise like Omar greatness is part of your heritage and you are an extension to that heritage? May Allah be pleased with Omar and may He be pleased with those who strive to become like Omar and to revive the biography of Omar and reserve their admiration for the likes of Allah
