Allah wa Kulu poden said either useless la Kumar Mala Mala comes in. When the Yoto a la hora Sula, who forgot the Pfizer, frozen are women and my bad.

00:01:14--> 00:01:47

All praise is due to Allah. We seek His guidance and his forgiveness and we seek refuge and Allah from the evil of ourselves and the whispering of our desires, whom Allah guides no one can miss guide and whom he allows to be misled. No one can guide and I bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship except Allah alone, having no partners and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is his slave and His messenger and his perfect worshiper. Allah says in the Quran, Oh, you who believe fear Allah as he deserves to be feared and do not die except in the state of Islam. And Allah says, Oh, mankind, Fear your Lord who created you from a single soul and produce from that so

00:01:47--> 00:02:09

it's made and made from their combination many men and women, so Fear your Lord whom you ask each other by and by the ties of kinship, verily, Allah is Ever Watchful over you. And Allah says, Oh, you who believe fear Allah and say that which is correct, he will correct for you your deeds and forgive you your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, then they are indeed victorious. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam

00:02:11--> 00:02:15

had went to capture and seize the caravan of Abu Sufian

00:02:17--> 00:02:26

and so him and 300 some odd companions had went for this easy military campaign.

00:02:28--> 00:02:35

But Allah subhanho wa taala, maneuvered the believers and maneuvered the Mushrikeen for it to turn into what would become the Battle of better

00:02:37--> 00:02:47

and so Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after going with his companions to see is a caravan now sees that he is going to be up against 1000 of them chicane.

00:02:48--> 00:02:57

And so he summons his companions all over them. And he says, Ushiro Allah Yohannes he says, oh, people advise me.

00:03:00--> 00:03:12

And so Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu speaks and he speaks well, and Amara, the Allah and who speaks and he speaks well, and the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam continues to say I shoot or they give me Shura, or people.

00:03:14--> 00:03:37

And so I will make a dialogue, the ALLAH and he says, it is as if you intend us or messenger of Allah, meaning the onslaught of not the more hygiene not the people of Quraysh but at Osen alleged village because they took a pledge of allegiance from the province of Allah to send them to defend him in Medina and they're outside of Medina right now. This is beyond the jurisdiction of the agreement. And so the province of Allah de Sena wants to know what's Alosa

00:03:39--> 00:03:47

going to say now and then Melodyne said to him, O Messenger of Allah, we are not going to say, like, Benny is La ISA to Musa.

00:03:49--> 00:04:05

Either have Antara Buka Tila, you go into your Lord and fight you and your Lord go fight. We are going to be sitting here we're not going to say that. Rather, we're going to say you go fight. And we will be to the right of you and to the left of you and in front of you and behind you.

00:04:06--> 00:04:48

And the province of Elijah. I said, I'm also heard from sides of Nimrod. I cited him Avila Allah and who said O Messenger of Allah, if we have believed in you. And if you were to tell us to go and wade through a sea might have an analogy with Anwar Haider, not a single one of us would stay behind. We're in a suit couldn't even help and you will find that we are super often held up that we are patient in battle. So to put it in the QA, you will find this to be true for the province of Allah, they send them consulted his companions, and you will see that Rasulullah sallallahu they are sending them would not leave them without their consultation. And so in this video, I want to talk

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

about this attribute of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam that is actually an attribute of the believers. And that is the attribute of Shura, the attributes of consultation. Allah Subhana Allah it says

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

We're live in HD buena Kabbalah is more for Ash, those describing the believers and sort of the shorter he says those who avoid combat Iran F major sins and indecency with Mr. Volleyball and when they become upset either home your funeral they forgive whether the anesthesia Buddha Rabin accommo salata, Omraam should I be known, and those who responded to their Lord will apama salah, and they established the prayer and their affair, their characteristic is sure amongst each other, when we model zakat, now when you feel good, and they give from what We have provided them and so, you see Allah subhanaw taala placing this attributes of consultation in between Salah and Zakka and we know

00:05:42--> 00:06:25

the importance of Salah and zecca and we know the the consistency or we know the the the importance of these attributes and Allah subhanaw taala placing it in between these two attributes with their consistency indicates to us that consultation is a consistent attribute of the believer. Sugata Shura being a Meccan Surah tells us that consultation is not an attribute of, of the politics of the Muslim state, but it is an attribute of the social, the social fabric of Muslim communities. And so Allah Subhana Allah Allah says we're amerihome Shura bainham. And in fact, he commands the prophets of Allah to send him in Saudi Arabia and Iran after the Battle of ERT and the Battle of Earth also

00:06:25--> 00:06:27

had Shura. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam

00:06:29--> 00:06:33

consulted the Companions, with regards to where to fight the battle of a hurt

00:06:35--> 00:06:56

and Rasulullah sallallahu salams suggestion, his his thought was that it should be fought in the city itself. That you you, you bring them with you to gain in, and you fight a guerrilla war in the city, from the rooftops and from the windows and leave them in like that. But I want you to imagine

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

if you're a young man,

00:07:00--> 00:07:01

and you missed out

00:07:02--> 00:07:37

on the caravan of Abu Sufian, because you thought it was going to be a caravan of abuse of yard. And when everyone is coming back days later, they're talking about the great battle of better if you talk about missing out on an event, that is the greatest event that people missed out on that a person be a young, able bodied man in Medina, and everybody's coming back. And they're talking about Djibouti, and having been there and the angels having been there and, and the machine again, the heads of them, which again, being killed, and it is the greatest battle in history. And you were there, except you missed it. So the next year when or who came let's How about the young Sahaba

00:07:37--> 00:07:54

especially there were like No jasola We're not fighting in the city. We have to meet them out in the open. We have to, we have to meet them like warriors in open combat. And so Rasulullah sallallahu has said that he though he then goes back into his house, they've overwhelmed him, he goes back into his house.

00:07:55--> 00:08:06

And so the people then say to themselves, they say it's as if we've overwhelmed Rasulullah Salallahu less than him so when he comes back out, they then say to him, oh Messenger of Allah, whatever you want to do.

00:08:07--> 00:08:45

And the prophets of Allah, they said of them, he then says It is not befitting for a prophet after he has put on his armor that he take it off, until Allah has judged between him and his enemies. The prophets of Allah they send them is teaching us that when you've consulted, you've made a decision. Now we move forward, even though it was not his opinion. And undoubtedly, Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihe Salam has the most sound judgment. He is the person who's the most who's got the greatest integrity. He's got the most sincerity, the province that Elijah is sending them submits his opinion to the opinion of the community around him.

00:08:46--> 00:09:10

And the battle of what had happened and you know what happened with the Battle of Hood? Allah subhanaw taala after the Muslims were victorious, they then it turned into a loss for them a temporary loss but it was a victory with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And major, major lessons were unlearned, but Allah after the battle, but what does he say total Zulu Allah Allah Allah Allah says, he says, for being mighty mean Allah He limped along well

00:09:11--> 00:09:14

I mean, how big five four and one was stuck I wish I would have

00:09:15--> 00:09:31

Allah tells the province of Almighty send them still to consult them, still consult them. After something like this a person might say, You know what, I consulted you guys, and this is what happened. I'm not consulting anymore now on it's my way, or the highway. But Allah subhanaw taala total sort of Allah so I sent him shot with him you can

00:09:33--> 00:09:51

either present for token Allah, Allah and then once the decision has been made, consultation has happened. Then rely upon Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah loves those who rely on him. Don't be people who consult make a decision. And then after the after the decision is made. Someone's making private phone calls. Everybody's saying Hold on a second. I think we made the wrong decision.

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

Let's go back and have a rebound. Let's do a re election. Let's do a recount. Let's do this. Let's do that. Because that paralyzes a community

00:10:00--> 00:10:19

And I've seen and I'm sure many of us have seen communities where a decision was made 10 years ago, 15 years ago, 20 years ago a property was purchased for, for for for a particular purpose. And that property was never developed by the community because they were never able to after they made that initial decision and after they raise funds for it and all of that

00:10:20--> 00:10:21

the infighting

00:10:22--> 00:10:36

either hasn't photogra Allah Allah Allah says, if you've made the decision and move forward, it's a beautiful etiquette to teach people as well in your in your family, a beautiful etiquette to teach people in your work groups, that when we've made a consultation in the meeting, we've decided let's move forward.

00:10:38--> 00:11:11

The province of Allah de Sena consulted in all of his campaigns. And so you find the Battle of labour Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam now if it was 1000 people table was 10,000 people coming to wipe Islam out and the Muslims from the city of Medina. And so Rasulullah sallallahu. They said them is seeking counsel from his companions, and one of them is coming from a far off place and he is foreign. And so he's going to suggest something that none of them have ever experienced before said man and fire to settle the ALLAH and he says something that we that we do in Persia is that we dig trenches.

00:11:13--> 00:11:43

And so based on Sandman FITC suggestion, the Muslims began to dig a trench, the MaHA Judean owes Huzzah, all of them are building a trench based on the suggestion of a former slave who was not even Arab. Everyone had a voice in the community of the prophets of Allah how to set it up and everyone's voice. If it was the best suggestion was actioned. I want you to imagine what that does for a community when said minded fantasy is seeing everybody building a trench based on his suggestion.

00:11:44--> 00:11:57

Shura is something that the province of Elijah sent them did not restrict to battles, but the province the law to set it up even with the most intimate affairs of his family Rasulullah cellulitis and them would consult.

00:11:59--> 00:12:06

And so you see during the slander of Inshallah, Allah anha Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he summons

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

Sam is eight, and I've never thought it.

00:12:13--> 00:12:22

And Barry era, the servant girl of Aisha, and he asked all three of them, what do you think? What should I do?

00:12:24--> 00:12:41

And the scholars mentioned that the prophets Allah lightness and specifically summoned the young Sahaba he summoned it who was young and Usama who was young, because sometimes young people, they don't have the diplomacy of elders. So they'll give it to you raw, they'll give it to you real, they'll give you what they really think.

00:12:42--> 00:12:49

And so Osama the Allahu Anhu. He says, oh, a messenger of Allah. I've never seen anything wrong from Asia, nothing.

00:12:51--> 00:12:55

And I have never thought about the Allahu Anhu he says, Oh messenger of Allah.

00:12:56--> 00:12:57

Allah has created many women.

00:12:59--> 00:13:01

If it's if it's if he has the issue, then

00:13:02--> 00:13:06

you can divorce her and Allah subhanaw taala will give you somebody else

00:13:08--> 00:13:26

tells Madeira what have you seen of Aisha but he does is female. She's in the constant company of Ayesha so she'll, she'll tell him what the men don't see. And buddy Allah says, rasool Allah Allah says she says, I've never seen anything wrong with fish. I've never seen anything that's a problematic about Aisha ever other than the fact that sometimes when she's making dough,

00:13:28--> 00:13:33

she's a young girl, and she falls asleep with the dough in her hand, and the goat comes and eats the dough. That's it. That's all I got.

00:13:35--> 00:13:48

But I want you to imagine how Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in such a vulnerable moment, he is consulting people. And there are many of us who go through the most rocky family situations, and we don't consult anybody

00:13:49--> 00:13:52

got difficulty with our kids. Don't consult anybody.

00:13:54--> 00:14:04

Difficulty with my spouse, my marital relationship, don't consult anybody. Don't talk to anybody. I'm not talking to a counselor. I'm not talking to a therapist. I'm not talking to my best friends.

00:14:06--> 00:14:19

And so even those closest to a person may not know what is going on in their life. They don't consult, they don't ask. They don't seek benefit from anybody else's experiences. And then all of a sudden you hear about a separation and everybody's surprised.

00:14:21--> 00:14:26

One of the beautiful things that consultation teaches us is humility.

00:14:27--> 00:14:49

And one of the things that consulting does, is that a suffocates a person's ego. There is no one of us who's more intelligent that will sort of loss of life and there's no one of us who has a better judgment than the province of allied ascending them. And yet we see the Ebola and who says I never saw anyone who consulted more little sort of law sizing them I never saw anyone who consulted more than the province of Allah, they send them

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

so much to even the way that he dressed. And so welcome on the line. Oh my God, Allah I know they said O Messenger of Allah, some people they they are really impressed by

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

By the way that people dress

00:15:02--> 00:15:27

and so if you took a particular garment that you could wear so that people when they see you, they realize who you are and so the province of Allah they are setting themselves up walking in comedy, he said if you to ever agree on one thing, I would never ever differ with you. If you do both calm and you agree Abu Bakr and Omar I'm never going to differ with you. And so the province level why they said and took on a garment when he was meeting delegations and other things.

00:15:30--> 00:15:34

You know, one of the most awkward moments in the seat of the province on the lightest.

00:15:36--> 00:15:53

One of the most awkward moments in the state of the province of aleida. settler was the Treaty of her day BIA. And I don't know of another moment in this era, where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told the Companions a point blank command and they didn't do it. And they didn't rush to do it.

00:15:54--> 00:16:03

Rasulullah sallallahu so love treaty of her Davia the Muslims are very frustrated. They feel like the terms of the treaty are humiliating.

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

And so

00:16:07--> 00:16:28

Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. He calls this treaty, however, feta moving later on, but the terms were just very difficult for the Muslims to bear it was beneath their dignity, that if a mushrik accepts Islam, that they have to be sent back to Makkah. But if a Muslim apostates in Medina, they go back to Makkah, and it's not equal terms

00:16:30--> 00:16:45

and many other terms that they found to be humiliating and Soto su Lhasa send them after the Treaty is over, he can and the Muslims are not allowed to go to Mecca and perform the pilgrimage, even though they're coming as travelers and pilgrims, obvious pilgrims, and the McCain's who have never sent anybody back are sending them back.

00:16:47--> 00:16:59

The province and Elijah send them after the Treaty. He commands for the Sahaba to shave their heads and offer their sacrifices and go home. Home was done. Nobody moves, nobody moves.

00:17:00--> 00:17:15

The province of the Lyceum doesn't know what to do. And I want you to imagine when Has this ever happened in the CETA that you can think of where he says do this and the Sahaba don't rush to do it. But he goes into his tent, and he tells his wife on Saturday.

00:17:16--> 00:17:28

And on Sunday model the Allah Anna says or messenger of Allah, is that what you want? You want them to shave their heads and offer their their their their sacrum, their heavy, their sacrifice? He says yes. She says okay, then this is what you do. You go out

00:17:29--> 00:17:32

and call your barber. And in front of everybody.

00:17:33--> 00:17:39

Shave your head, don't talk to anybody just shave your head and sacrifice your animal.

00:17:40--> 00:18:05

And then they'll do it. And the province of Elijah said, Lim then goes, and he does what himself instructed him to do or suggested that he do. So that most awkward moment with the Sahaba of the Allah on him. And as soon as the province of Elijah sent him did it, the rest of the Sahaba all shaved their heads. But it was a consultation that he did with his family. It was a consultation that he did with his family.

00:18:07--> 00:18:11

Of the things that consultation teaches us and I want to briefly end with this.

00:18:14--> 00:18:17

Number one is that it gives everyone a voice.

00:18:20--> 00:18:38

It makes everyone feel that they have a share in the decision. And when everyone feels like they had a share in the decision even if it's not their decision that was or their suggestion that was taken. You've created something called buy in. Everyone has collectively come to this agreement. Now everyone has bought into this decision.

00:18:39--> 00:18:54

Also of the benefits of consultation is that it is obedience to Allah subhanaw taala Allah says We shall we don't feel Allah commands and commands denote obligation. And so if ALLAH is commanding the province of Allah, they send them to consult, then what about us?

00:18:56--> 00:18:58

It removes enmity and hostility.

00:19:00--> 00:19:03

When I am consulted by someone

00:19:04--> 00:19:07

my natural inclination is to give them good advice.

00:19:09--> 00:19:42

And so even if I have enmity toward or someone someone's always causing tension with you, or you feel like someone doesn't like you, or you're working with someone in a team and you just feel like they consult with them, and that inshallah this part part of what that will do in sha Allah to Allah is remove enmity and hostility from that person. And number four Inshallah, to Allah is that it removes or it gives a person exposure to other people's expertise and other people's experiences, like the example of Sandman and fantasy. He was able to suggest to them a tactic that the Arabs did not know. And it was something that was an experience that came to them from abroad from Persia.

00:19:44--> 00:19:48

And Allah subhana darnos best Kumasi Mr. Mustapha Rolla they were looking for structural in all right.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah while I was listening to the McCarthy era, the last

00:20:00--> 00:20:18

A category of people that I would encourage consulting, we've talked about consulting, family, parents consulting their children, but the young consulting the old, you know, something interesting and unfortunate about American society is that there is a, there is a disregard to the elderly.

00:20:19--> 00:20:59

And when I, as a young person, I'm able to consult with those who are older than me, especially those who have a trove of life experience, that this adds experience to my experience, it adds perspective to my life, it adds years to my lifetime, if I'm able to go through, go through things and learn things without having to actually go through all of the difficulties consulting in any affair with regards to people who I think are experts in any particular matter, or in people have experiences any particular matter. Let me reach out to people let me ask people let me seek out mentors. All of this in sha Allah to Allah will make a person's judgment more sound will make their

00:20:59--> 00:21:16

opinions or their steps more sharp, and inshallah to honor their actions more successful. We ask Allah azza wa jal to allow us to hear the speech and follow the best of it. We ask Allah azza wa jal to enter us into paradise and will grant us and grant us what will bring us closer to vaccines and speech and to protect us from the hellfire. Aloha My name is Erica Jana
