00:01:10 --> 00:01:48

all praises due to Allah we seek His guidance in his forgiveness that we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and the whispering of our desires. whom Allah guides no one can miss guide and only Allah has 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 then when I met some Allah it was ended up is this slave and His messenger. Allah says in the Quran, Oh you who believe fear Allah as he deserves to be feared and do not die except in a state of Islam. And Allah says, Oh mankind Fear your Lord who created you from a single soul and produced from that soul it's made and made from their combination

00:01:48 --> 00:01:56

many men and women so Fear your Lord whom you ask each other by and by the ties of kinship via the Allah is Ever Watchful over you.

00:01:57 --> 00:02:17

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. To proceed. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam enters into Medina after 13 years of persecution in Mecca.

00:02:19 --> 00:02:20

And when he arrived,

00:02:21 --> 00:02:25

the entire city came out to see him.

00:02:26 --> 00:02:55

The Muslim and the non Muslim, the Muslims of Medina, they came to see the man that they believed in. They wanted to get that first glimpse. And they were overjoyed as NSLP Allah Allah said that one rasool Allah Allah Allah, Allah Islam arrived in Medina, everything lit up. There was no day that was brighter than the day of the arrival of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in Medina, I want you to imagine everybody emerging from the city, crowds of people.

00:02:58 --> 00:03:00

And those who weren't most of them,

00:03:01 --> 00:03:05

came to still see who this man was that all of this commotion was about.

00:03:07 --> 00:03:26

The Jews of Medina came out and of them was Abdullah bin set up, the chief rabbi of Medina, he came as well to see who this man was. And then the province of Allah, Allah who sent him spoke. And he gave his first address to the people of Medina.

00:03:27 --> 00:03:28

Now, when you're a leader,

00:03:30 --> 00:03:35

and you're giving what we would call an inaugural address, your inauguration speech,

00:03:36 --> 00:03:57

of incredible importance you're about to give people direction you're about to make your first impression you're about to showcase to people, what your vision is, for the leadership that you now have. And if you do it right, you will be able to paint an honest picture an inspiring picture of what your leadership is going to be. And so

00:03:58 --> 00:04:02

we have in our American history, we have examples of famous moments in time.

00:04:04 --> 00:04:12

Maybe of the most famous is JFK, who said, Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country.

00:04:14 --> 00:04:50

And in our Islamic heritage, we have incredible moments are among them, the hotbar of the ally, who when he gave his inaugural address, the Muslims were so worried about the reputation of Allah, the harshness of aroma to the strength of aroma. And so aroma of the Allah and who he says that the stronger of you is the weak in my eyes, until I make them until I subjugate them to the law, and the weak of yours, the strong in my eyes until I secure for them the rights of the law and who is calling their fears and he's showcasing that his life is going to be a philosopher of justice.

00:04:51 --> 00:04:53

And it was about the Allah anois

00:04:54 --> 00:04:56

and before him aboubaker

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

He becomes the first colleague

00:05:00 --> 00:05:26

But after Rasulullah lightyear sent them, and I will worse, the laughter is so crucial. And in his address, he makes a distinction that needed to be made, because before the law who was also lost on the lightest, and one rasool Allah said, go right, everybody went right. And if he said go left, everybody we're live because obeying the messengers of Allah is obeying Allah. Allah Who out there Rasul Allah says,

00:05:28 --> 00:05:43

But obeying a rulebook is not absolute. Obeying any man after Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is not tantamount to obeying Allah. And so we're working on the law and who creates that distinction. And he says, up there only my thoughts when

00:05:44 --> 00:06:09

he says, Obey me, as long as I obey Allah and His Messenger, but if I disobey Allah and His Messenger, then there's no bar due to me. And so the Muslims since the time of Buddha, we never had the issue of thinking that our rulers ruled by divine decree that whatever they said, We have to obey unconditionally. We're working on the Allah who set the tone that needed to be set for him and every were after him.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:15

So what Rasulullah saw the light is and enters into Medina, what did he say?

00:06:17 --> 00:06:18

Abdullah, he said, I'm reports

00:06:20 --> 00:06:28

he narrates and Muslim reports that Rasulullah sallallahu ended up addressing that first community he says you had Ness, oh people.

00:06:30 --> 00:06:39

The Muslim and non Muslim he understands that he's entering into a multicultural, multi religious society. He says a Yohannes orthodox approach to set up

00:06:40 --> 00:06:41

will alter mo Bob

00:06:42 --> 00:06:48

was ill or harm was some Looby lady when Macedonia that whole agenda TV set up.

00:06:49 --> 00:07:07

These four things are what I want you to take home with you I want you to put it in your pocket, I want you to share it, I want you to implement it. It is what assuming loss of Elijah said it gave as the spirit of Islam as he entered into Medina. The first is spread this extra setup.

00:07:08 --> 00:07:09

After setup.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:19

We have done so much in our lives for agenda. How many of us have we sat and we listened that we didn't talk? We didn't touch our phones over our lifetime for agenda.

00:07:20 --> 00:07:46

How many solo times per week? How many Ramadan's have we fasted? How much sadaqa have we given how much? How many cameras how many heads? How much obedience to our parents, how we show how many opportunities to fulfill our desires did we restrict ourselves from and we compound our souls to submit to Allah Subhana Allah because of the promise of Jana Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam says In another Hadith reported by Muslim he says

00:07:47 --> 00:07:48

to me, no,

00:07:49 --> 00:08:25

you won't antigen that this gentleman you've worked so hard for your antigen until you believe. And he says oh, what I taught me to have and you will not believe until you love one another. I will enter Jannah until I believe in I will enter Jannah and I won't believe until I love I love the people around me. I love my Muslim community. And that also will last them ally they send them says Allah, Allah che in either for us to move to have to show and I tell you something that if you do it, you will love one another. He's upset. I'm Avena come spread this amongst you spread this around. Right now, when you were walking into this measured, how many setups did you give? There's

00:08:25 --> 00:08:32

hundreds of people here How did you give hundreds of setup? Did you give a dozen? Did you give two Did you not get one you just walk grab your shoes, put your shoes walk through did

00:08:33 --> 00:08:45

whoever you recognize you said said I'm too I didn't recognize a lot of people. So I didn't give them set up. Also lost the light instead of says Are you a nurse, if you set up spread this out is shot the first sheet, it spreads spreads beyond yourself.

00:08:48 --> 00:09:04

Spreading the setup. It's very important. This is a beautiful message. I love coming to Cincinnati and visiting you hear it's a beautiful message. But I guarantee you this, if a person comes to the most beautiful message, the most beautiful message and no one gives them setup. They're going to walk right out.

00:09:06 --> 00:09:25

They're going to walk right out. I've been to messages that were built by millions of dollars in many places in the US and you walk in and everybody ignores you and nobody gives you set out or even worse. You say set out to people and they can't summon up the voice to respond to you.

00:09:28 --> 00:09:31

I call them haunted houses. You just pray and then you leave.

00:09:33 --> 00:09:36

And then you go to a masjid that's a that's a hole in the wall.

00:09:39 --> 00:09:45

But they're warm when they greet you. They're happy to see you and it feels like home.

00:09:47 --> 00:09:59

The Salaam has this incredible power. It can make the most difficult places feel warm. And it denotes welcome and it denotes love. I felt that I didn't look on my other shades.

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

either for ultimo to have up to a few cinema radio commercial. And I tell you something that if you do it, you will love one another, spread this out amongst each other. And so that's the first. I've just set up.

00:10:12 --> 00:10:17

But I don't want you to restrict it to just sit down. I see a Muslim I said it.

00:10:18 --> 00:10:20

I don't know if it's the culture here in Cincinnati.

00:10:23 --> 00:10:40

But the Prophet sallallahu Sydenham says in them every student will tell me Mama Caramella, I was only sent to perfect good character. So even the act of saying good morning. Hi, how are you to your non Muslim neighbors, the people that you interact with? My question for you is, is this Makati one o'clock? Is it good character? Yes or no?

00:10:42 --> 00:11:14

And the answer, of course, should be yes. And so if that is the case, then me as a Muslim living in Cincinnati, should I not be someone who shares the good characteristics that Allah Subhan Allah to Allah and his messenger have taught us whether or not it is part of the culture or the fabric of that society in that particular time. Meaning, sometimes as Muslims, when we live in cities, where it is not the culture to say Hi, good morning, I know for sure the Northeast is like that you go to Boston, New York, these places, nobody says Hi, nobody makes eye contact, nothing.

00:11:15 --> 00:11:51

But then you go to the south, they have something called Southern hospitality. And I'm not sure which one Cincinnati fits into. But people say Hi, good morning, and they wait for you. And so you'll find that the Muslims in the south, they also say Hi, good morning. But my question is, do we say it because it's the culture of the South? Or do we do it because it's the culture of Islam. And if it is the culture of Islam, which it is, then we should do it independently of where we are, wherever we go, we should be people who add beautifully to the culture of every city that we live in. We should be culture creators, not culture, consumers. We should be culture creators. Now

00:11:51 --> 00:12:03

culture consumers. So wherever I go, I implement it. And guess what I promise you this, that if you do it with confidence, if you say hello, good morning, smile at people, they will smile back because it is the fifth a lot.

00:12:05 --> 00:12:15

And I've tested this out in those same cities that I just mentioned to you that are cold. And you find that the people will respond back to you. After you set almudaina Who spread this around amongst each other. Number two,

00:12:16 --> 00:12:17

he says what other

00:12:19 --> 00:12:41

culture creators not culture consumers, feeding people to sort of lost the light. s&m says feed people. You know, when non Muslims go anywhere in the Muslim world, they go anywhere, I don't care where they go, they go to West Africa. They go to East Africa, North Africa, they go to the Arabian Peninsula, they go to Eastern Europe, they go to the Indian subcontinent, they go to Southeast Asia anywhere.

00:12:43 --> 00:12:46

They come back, raving about one thing.

00:12:49 --> 00:12:55

The hospitality of the Muslims, they will feed you and feed you and feed you and feed you. And

00:12:58 --> 00:13:06

they'll keep filling your cup and keep filling your plate, you have to flip your plate over, you have to flip the table over you have to try to escape somehow.

00:13:07 --> 00:13:16

But their hospitality is unwavering. And it is incredible. So my question is, with all of the Muslims that live in the United States, do we have that reputation here?

00:13:18 --> 00:13:51

That the Muslims are just incredibly hospitable say whatever you want about the Muslims with the Muslims are just incredibly hospitable. They feed and they invite and what's amazing is that we have that reputation amongst ourselves. If I go to lunch with my Muslim Brother, if I go to dinner with my Muslim brother, we're fighting over the building, we're doing the whole wrestling thing and one is going to the bathroom and he ends up paying the bill for everybody. We still do that we have that generosity. But the question that I posed to you is do we have that generosity with those around us who are non Muslim? And if not, why?

00:13:52 --> 00:14:05

The province of Elijah send him his entering into Medina and the first thing that he says is up there. But not only that, that we care about programs that feed the poor, Allah Subhana Allah says, We are immortal, to him his skin or where tema was in the mountains.

00:14:07 --> 00:14:34

And sort of an insane is the Meccan surah. Allah Subhana Allah meaning that the Muslims were very few it's talking about among non Muslim society, Allah subhanho data saying they feed the poor, they feed even though they have a need of the food. Who do they feed the Miskin the attainment? I see. They feed the poor and they feed the orphan and they feed I see when the prisoners never Muslim, Allah Subhana Allah says in the model, Allah will only doing it for the sake of Allah Allah who didn't come

00:14:35 --> 00:14:46

in and a half on Robben Island, Abu some Cambodia, we're only doing it for the sake of Allah, feeding the poor, the province of Allah it was sending them says, feed the poor. And then the third.

00:14:47 --> 00:14:50

He says, what's a little perhaps,

00:14:52 --> 00:14:58

and maintain the ties of kinship? Or connect the ties of kinship? Connect the ties of kinship

00:14:59 --> 00:15:00


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

The ties of kinship

00:15:03 --> 00:15:05

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam

00:15:07 --> 00:15:18

has told us of the importance of connecting the ties of kinship in many a hadith. But before I share with you those a hadith, I want you to pay attention to something

00:15:19 --> 00:15:26

because the pushback always is my relatives are difficult. Who doesn't have relatives that are difficult?

00:15:27 --> 00:15:47

Allah subhanho data you know, we love our friends because we get to choose our friends, friends are great. You get to choose your friends, they're enjoyable you choose them. But Allah Subhana Allah chose your family. And when Allah chose your family, he obligated on you to connect with your family.

00:15:49 --> 00:16:16

Allah chose your family and he obligated on you to connect with those people that he chose. Allah chose your parents, and Allah chose that weird uncle and ALLAH SubhanA. Allah chose that annoying cousin, that Allah Subhana Allah that I chose, that disrespectful, whoever it is, Allah Subhana Allah chose that individual for you. And he made him your family member or maid or your family member. And then Allah Subhana Allah obligated on you to connect. And notice how I'm saying connect, even though it's translated a lot of times as maintained.

00:16:18 --> 00:16:44

By Rasulullah satellite SLM was asked about a person who's good with you, and you're good with them. And the problem of salida is send them said no, Slava, isn't that mocha? It's not, it's not that. It's not that you have an uncle who calls you checks in on you. So you call them and when you call them, they answer the phone. And they're a delight. He says, No, that's not that's not what's a little little harm is slim up, is when you connect with those who cut you off.

00:16:45 --> 00:16:54

So that connecting with those who, when you message them, they don't respond. And when you call them, they ignore you. And when you send them a message, they leave you on read.

00:16:56 --> 00:17:11

At some point in time, you say to yourself, Well, I'm gonna, obviously, I'm going to stop, I'm going to ignore this person, I'm going to not keep messaging this person doesn't respond, calling this person trying to create a relationship with someone who obviously isn't interested in having a relationship.

00:17:12 --> 00:17:16

But the problem is the license says that's what connecting with your ties of kinship is.

00:17:18 --> 00:17:27

So connecting the ties of kinship. And for parents, I urge you this, I urge you, that you teach your children who their kin are.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:32

That you spend time

00:17:33 --> 00:17:43

telling them stories, letting them know who their grandparents are letting them know who their uncle is, letting them know who their cousins are letting them know who their family is.

00:17:46 --> 00:17:51

When a person knows where they come from, they are gifted the gift of knowing who they are.

00:17:53 --> 00:18:03

They are gifted the gift of knowing who they are. And when you know who your family is, when you know where you come from. You are gifted the gift of never walking into a room alone.

00:18:04 --> 00:18:12

Everywhere that I go, I'm taking my family with me. I'm taking my grandparents with me. I'm taking my heritage with me. I'm taking all of this with me.

00:18:13 --> 00:18:23

And it is a gift unfortunately, that many of our children are robbed with because of impatient parents. They're not listening. Yes, they're not listening, but they're not going to not listen forever.

00:18:24 --> 00:18:27

This beautiful was all beautiful, what obviously endure,

00:18:28 --> 00:18:43

Outlast. And you yourself have experienced this in your youth? There were many, many, how many? How many hours did your teachers spend with you. But then there might be just one moment in time where something stuck with you just one thing that finally changed. So So endure

00:18:46 --> 00:18:50

the province of Allah, it was a love, he says lions will agenda Takata

00:18:51 --> 00:18:58

Sahih Muslim, he says the one who breaks the ties of kinship will not enter into paradise. And so I also have a warning.

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

And that warning is for those children who are deserving of knowing who their family members are, that you don't be a person who breaks the ties of kinship.

00:19:13 --> 00:19:17

That you don't make your children a weapon. When parents separate.

00:19:19 --> 00:19:21

That you don't that you don't stop

00:19:23 --> 00:19:32

a father or a mother from knowing who their family members are having a relationship with their parents. Well, we talk about domestic violence.

00:19:35 --> 00:19:46

And October next month is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. But when we talk about violence within families, many times the violence that is imposed by men, if and when it is imposed by men is physical.

00:19:47 --> 00:19:52

And many times the violence that is imposed by women if and when it is imposed by women is legal.

00:19:54 --> 00:19:59

And so we want to be aware and we want to we want to fear Allah azza wa jal with regards to the relationships you

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

Allah subhanaw taala has entrusted us with lions full agenda Takata, the one who breaks the ties of kinship will not enter into paradise. And that also will last the lightest, and them says the fourth, he says will suddenly be lady when NASA pray in the night while the people are asleep. Pray in the night while the people are asleep.

00:20:20 --> 00:20:24

If you notice the first three things that are sold last them Elijah setting them set

00:20:25 --> 00:20:45

have to do with other people have to do with your relationships with creation. And then the fourth has to do with Allah Subhana Allah indicating to us that a righteous person is not someone who their righteousness is restricted to their relationship with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah but the people around them they don't have a share of this person's goodness.

00:20:46 --> 00:21:00

No, but everyone has a share of their setup. Everyone has a share of their food. Everyone has a share of their connection, their time they're checking in on them. Everyone has a share of their goodness as well. But the fourth is incredibly important that you have a relationship with Allah subhana data

00:21:01 --> 00:21:09

that you don't be either of the extremes that you don't be someone who all of their goodness is with people but Allah subhanaw taala does not have a share of your worship.

00:21:10 --> 00:21:26

Suddenly be lady when NASA Nia and Rasulullah Salallahu Salam indicates the night prayer because it is expected that a person who prays the night prayer that person will of course pray their five daily prayers. Brothers if you could please move forward in Shabbat that we have brothers standing outside just make some space,

00:21:27 --> 00:21:28

make some space and come up with Shaba.

00:21:31 --> 00:22:00

It is expected that that person will have his five daily prayers or her five daily prayers pray but when a person prays the night prayer, it is expected as well. That this is a prayer that is done solely for Allah subhanaw taala it is talking about sincerity of actions Rasulullah sallallahu send him says pray in the night while the people are asleep. That whole agenda to be set up. You will enter paradise in peace.

00:22:02 --> 00:22:05

The hadith is called the hadith of salaam as reported by Abdullah has been set up.

00:22:06 --> 00:22:21

It begins with setup I've just set out and it ends with that whole agenda to be set up. You will enter paradise in peace. And so we ask Allah Azza to make us of those who enter into paradise and peace of Guru Massey Mr. Mostafa they were looking for stuff you know for running.

00:22:27 --> 00:23:03

hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam CMAQ Philip, for those of you who are just joining we mentioned the hadith of Abdullah Haman set up that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam when he entered into Medina, he mentioned four things. The first is the spreading of setup. The second is feeding of the poor. The third is maintaining or connecting the ties of kinship. And number four is to pray in the night while the people are asleep. If a person does that also will last the light as Adam says that they will enter into paradise and peace. So we ask Allah as yet for paradise that will bring us close to it actions of speech and we seek refuge in Allah Subhana Allah from the

00:23:03 --> 00:23:36

Hellfire will bring us close to it of action. The speech alone may notice a local agenda toma automobilia Hammond podium.
