one another. Now ask yourself this. How many times do you initiate Salaam
to other Muslims? Whether you know them or not? Of course if you know the chef you will definitely the minute you see me you will say salaam aleikum?
I'm a celebrity you have to give me
the problem is not here. The problem is if I see you when I initiate Salaam to you, or will I walk in? Look at you.
I'm waiting for you to start salame. Why are you not giving salams? He is the one who's supposed to get set up for me first. This is a big problem. Because it deals with the heart. It deals of what you think of yourself. Are you arrogant? Or you're a true Muslim? This
to whom you know, is understood. I see someone I know definitely I'm going to give Salaam to I see my boss I see my relative I see my neighbor Assalamu alaykum no problem because I know him. The upper hand is to give Salaam to those you do not know.
This means that you are a true and real Muslim because you're not expecting any return. I can give Salaam to my neighbor because I always parked my car in his parking area. So I'd like to soften his heart so he would not object. But someone I do not know.
I know he's a Muslim. I've seen him in the masjid. I don't know him personally.
I don't want anything from him. Why should they give him Sam? This is what signifies your good Eman that you want to share the Word of Salim that you're getting a lot of reward and benefit you say Salaam Alaikum This is 10 good deeds. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah. This is 20 goodies As salam o aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Okay, are you giving a speech Halas move on, you get 3030 these so long? But who does it? And this is why the Prophet warned against
giving Salaam to specifics meaning that we are all here sitting about 20 of us and someone comes and says Assalamu alaykum wa sallam
he is specifying and neglecting the other 19 This happened with Abdullah and Massoud. A man came and said Assalamu alaykum Abdullah man.
Now, normal thing is to be happy and say, Article Sam. He said, This is what the prophet warned us from. He warned us from giving seminars specifically to a person and neglecting the others.
So the issue of Siam is not easy. And this shows you that there is no class there is no grades among Muslims, you are a ruler, you are a peasant, you are a manager, you are a subordinate, you're all together a Solomonic fraud, but to specifically single out this person just because I know him and I don't know the others. This is something that is wrong. The Prophet said Allah His salatu salam spread as salam, you will become Muslims
to slay mu.
And this means that it is part of my Dean to spread senem of course, in the case of a Muslim that you know, he's a Muslim. If someone who's doubtful whether he's Muslim or not, then you don't give them but if someone who is looks are definitely Muslim or you are in
a Muslim country, for sure there are no kaphas in your country. So you give Salaam without any problem, Abdullah Sam, who knows him
who was a rabbi, and he was among the first to embrace Islam. He said when I heard of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam coming to Medina, I went out to meet him
and look into his eyes Look at his face, because by looking at the face, you can tell if the person is fraud, or real.
So he said the moment I saw him, I knew that this was not the face of a liar
and the first state
mints that I heard from him, he said, Yeah, are you Hannah's Oh, people should
spread the word of Salaam. salaam aleikum, WA Primo Pam and feed the food will signal our ham connect your next of kin was solo belay Lael, when NASA Nia and pray at night, when people are asleep, that the whole agenda be set up and you will enter heaven and paradise in peace. So these are the first things that he took from the prophets mouth sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And, finally, the prophet said Allah, his salatu salam, the most stingy of all people, is the one who's stingy of giving Salam when he meets them. So always spread the word of Assalam. Allah knows best.
Chapter Six, delightful, once Muslim brother, what one life is a
very good understanding along with the prophets, the law.
You will have paid to the wishes for his Muslim brother what he likes for himself by now, part of a man
and proper Islam is that you have what's between you and your community? fixed. I could have what's between me and Allah fixed by praying by fasting by doing what Allah wants me to do yet, with the others. I have the worst of a lot.
I'm rude. I am abusive. I use vulgar language. But I pray in the masjid and I first Ramadan and Mondays and Thursdays and I'm trying to be a good Muslim between me and Allah. Islam comes to fix also what's between you and the community. So Islam teaches us to spread goodness among ourselves, to love for one another what we love for ourselves. First, he told us to refrain in the Hadith. refrain from using your tongue verbally to abuse others and to harm others with your own actions. refraining is okay. Is it
a lower level or a higher level?
Can we have something saying question? Whenever I asked us a question so that the people are awake, I see a lot of the brothers that are asleep.
brothers do not sleep because I am looking for a pillow and a mattress.
If I see you asleep, I feel sleepy as well. Then it's a lose lose situation. Again, the question when Allah tells us to refrain from abusing others verbally or by action, is this a lower level or a higher level?
I didn't get you lower.
No, do not repeat.
Say yes or no. Lower.
It's a difference of opinion among scholars. Alhamdulillah.
refraining from doing bad is a lower level, the higher level is to refrain and to do good. So this hadith is the higher the lower we took, we spoke about now this hadith is about being
faithful and having full Eman, if you love for your brothers, what you love for yourself. But this hadith is not to be taken literally. Why?
Why this is a good question.
I'll tell you a secret I smoke
out of the villa.
So, I need the brother and I have a cigarette.
What are you doing?
What are you talking about? Is this acceptable? Why? Because there is a word that is embedded but you cannot see it. There are narrations that mention it. You may have
How do you hate belly a Hema you hate NFC II mean?
There has to be this addition. So I love to my brother's what I love to myself of goodness only, but if someone who is drinking wine or doing since and he said, Let's share well as the day I saw a movie Whoo, this is a DVD, try it. And I love for my brother whatever, no, this is sinful you will not be a Muslim at all. Now you are falling in knots refraining from spreading evil verbally and by actions. So this is important that you know this now part of the importance of this Hadith, loving for others with Allah for myself.
communities will never flourish.
communities will never progress unless we have this Islamic characteristic in us when we refrain from harming others, when we learn how to forgive. And this is something we as Muslims really need forgiveness. I see it in households, when sisters fight together sisters, siblings, and they never forgive one another.
I received a letter once in my message. And she was a girl of 22 or 23 years of age, saying that my
mother, who is in her 70s or 60s did not speak with my uncle, who is in his 80s for 30 years,
or 40 years. Why? Because of a dispute that took place when they were young and children and they boycotted one another How can they raise a family with such hatred? How can they give their own children love and compassion and teach them how to spread sallam, among others. This is why as Muslims, you have to love for your brothers, what you love for yourself of goodness. Do you like people to forgive you?
That you have to learn how to forgive? You have to learn how to visit the sick, how to compensate those desperate and in need, how to
sponsor an orphan, how to take care of a widow, how to meet people with a smiling face with a clean heart. Why is it the more you become serious in Islam, the more grumpy you are.
Sweet, very strange. I see I know people who are not committed to Islam well, and all of a sudden, they started practicing and hamdulillah but they start to frown in my face whenever I see them. This is so serious going to the masjid coming out. I crack a joke this guy's very funny.
What is this smile? Do some? There is something wrong in us. We have to start to make ourselves all over again. According to the sooner the Prophet alayhi wa sallam used to smile. The Companions used to sit in the masjid. Talking about their times in Jamelia. You said before I used to do this in this oh I used to do that. And the Prophet sits there listening to them in the masjid talking about things in jelly and simply smiles.
What would we do?
In the masjid, you don't fear Allah and things about joy Hillier, your cafe.
Attend the course was awesome. Initially. I know that there are branches of Eman, this is not.
This is not even sinful. The Prophet approved it Allah salatu salam there was nothing Haram in it. But we have to freshen up smiling in the face of your Muslim brother caring for their feelings giving them way, especially when you're coming out to the parking lot tonight in Sharla. And when you leaving home, you don't have to run them over or you can first give the way feel feel like a Muslim.
Zach Allah. Hi, this is Indonesian. Of course in an era you don't allow people to come in front of you. The salaat is given a comma. In the first row there is a spot and brothers spent half
An hour please no no please no please.
You do not allow people to come in front of you go. Oh shoot. No, it's not true. This is Jenna. Would you let someone enter agenda first in the mall, be my guest
entered first but in things of good deeds and getting closer to Allah, do not let anyone come before you.
So this hadith By the way, again, it does not mean it is only for Muslims, even for non Muslims. Sure, God, this is too much. We've listened to you before and but this is too much. Do you mean that I have to love to non Muslims? What I love to myself Yes.
This is given as in general, but even for non Muslims Would you like to be guided to Jenna,
you have to love for them as well. And this is one of the best
incentives for you to call others to Islam. Because the Prophet says that you will not believe until you love for them what you love for yourself. The Prophet said la slotzo in an authentic hadith.
love for others, what you love for yourself and you become a Muslim.
love for others, what you love for yourself and you become Muslim. Yeah, and you will not become a true full fledged Muslim until you love for others, Muslims and non Muslims alike, until you like goodness for them. And this is why the manifestation of the companions in the Tabori when dealing with non Muslims, they would even advise them, especially in transactions when they're selling then something a Muslim comes and says how much is this said, wondering it.
But it's not good. It's not good. And then a non Muslim comes into this fight for top quality.
This is haram, the companions in the temporary would also give advice to the non Muslims. And this is how people accept Islam.
How did the Muslims Islam comes to come to Malaysia,
to Indonesia, through the traders, but learn where they like our traders today. Oh, they will or they would have abandoned Islam forever. They were real Muslims. They use truth. They had trust, and people accepted the way they dealt because of their luck. And this is how a real Muslim must be when dealing with Muslims and also double that when dealing with non Muslims. Because you are portraying Islam.
I am under the microscope. If I do a single mistake, no one will say awesome did a mistake they will say the chef did a mistake. Islam made the mistake. If he was if his religion was good, he would have behaved well. But it is not good. And this is why he's corrupt. So each and every one of you is under the microscope calling people to Islam behaving as Muslims. Do you think that I do not want to abuse people who say bad things to me? I don't have the feeling I want to hate them. I have this I'm a human being. But what makes me Stop is Islam. One of the brothers is Allah hare on Twitter was saying that sharehouse May Allah bless you and make you steadfast for exposing the people have
deviation. And you have to be harsh because this is from the setup. And you have to be
is it from the setup, that I have to be harsh with the people of elevation? Does it say in my religion that I have to be harsh and rude and abusive? This is what he's saying to be Hama, Salafi, but I never know. I never knew that this was part of of Islam. It is not part of Islam.
Those youngsters, the youth who are growing up thinking that part of being a Salafi or abiding by the Quran and Sunnah, or fighting innovation part of it is to be rude, to be abusive, to say a word and not care not to be diplomatic. This is totally an Islamic and my role model is a prophet or a saucer and his companions with all respect to the setup, but I take my religion from the Quran and the Sunnah. So how did the Prophet deal alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, with the Christians with the Jews.
With the wrongdoers, people come due to their ignorance, urinate in the masjid. He fights with them. He talks with them with diplomacy, ignorance need to be taught, but to be abusive or to be aggressive. This is not part of our religion. And this concept of
what he likes, none of you will have faith until he likes for other what he likes for himself. This was manifested by the prophet alayhi salatu salam.
The Prophet appoints highly the new elite. As a ruler, he appoints companions to the region's as rulers when a Buddha Farry,
one of the first to embrace Islam.
And a very, very old senior said he has seniority. He comes and says, Oh prophet of Allah, appoint me to be a ruler on one of the regions, what does the Prophet say on a silver Sir, he holds his shoulders, and he said,
You are weak.
However, I love for you, what I love for myself. And this is part of the way of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, do not appoint yourself over to people, you do not appoint yourself as rolling over to and do not
take charge of the money of an orphan. Why?
When you take charge of the money of the orphan who will hold you accountable?
No one, so you will abuse it. If I have my nephew, his father died, and he was a millionaire. And now I'm appointed by the government or by the family, to be his guardian. I will abuse it. If I don't have fear and Allah so the Prophet is telling him not to do this Allah His salatu salam, even ambass May Allah be pleased with him. He gave us an example. He said by Allah, I read the eye of the Quran. And I know so much knowledge about it. And I wish I can share it with everyone else.
The knowledge you have,
do you have
the enthusiasm to share it with everyone else? No.
I don't have time I don't want to teach people.
I don't enjoy teaching people.
This is problematic when you have something that you love, and people do not have if you don't want to teach them and share it with them. Then your Eman is under questioning.
And also Mohammed who is here of the tambourine. He wants wanted to sell a donkey. So the man buying it. He said do you accept it for me? Would you allow me to buy it and he said, if I did not accept you, I would not have sold it. I implement and apply this hadith. I would not sell something unless I approve of it for myself. So now when you sell your car what do you do?
Some of the brothers goes to the tires with black tea. So it becomes shiny takes you to carwash fixes anything that and the inside is corrupt. It's rusty, it's bad. He never tells how is the carwash
in Saudi when you go to the car market,
the man who's auctioning the car so that he would not be accused of cheating but does He say this car is 2017 model doesn't go forward doesn't go backwards. doesn't fly doesn't doesn't sail. It has no engine it has no oil, oil is in water water is in oil the windows do not work.
And God is almost brand new. But he's saying all of this so that when you come in the car has this fault in it as I told you
he lies and this is happening no in Islam. You do not do this you show people what is happening by move on.
Yeah, I know we have 10 minutes but stop or do push ups.
to love the messenger
am set by him in my life is none of you would have paid
a lot more than his father and children.
a lot of money in the pockets of alumni.
None of you will have paid more than his father, his children and
so this is an addition. Not only father and children but all mankind. This Hadith is one of the proofs that you are a believer that you should love the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, those who do not love the Prophet, raise your hands.
Good, good. So they all love the Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam, but this love requires
proof. So when you say that you love the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, we asked you to do what? Prove it. And proving it is not by simply claiming it is by implementing his sooner in every single aspect of your life. And this love of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam Is it a condition? Meaning that
a person has to love the Prophet that is more than his children, his father and humankind. Otherwise he's not a believer. Yes or no?
No, yeah. Why? See, the prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam
said that you will not believe until I am more beloved to you than your father, your children and the whole human race, you will not believe this is a negation.
And the negation means one of three.
Either the existence there is no love.
There is no emotion at all, meaning your a Kaffir
or the validity, meaning there is a man but it is invalid or the perfection. There is a man it is valid, but it's not complete.
So when we say that, for example, there is no God, worthy of being worship except Allah. When we say there is no God. We're talking about existence or validity or completion.
existence, there is no God. There is no doubt at all. You don't even doubt it. There is no god worthy of being worshipped. But when the Prophet said la Salatu was Salam
la Yes, Nizami Hina. Well, this is a translation which is problematic, so we will go to something else.
Last salata delay.
There is no prayer, without Budo existence, validity or completion, validity because I'm afraid
it exists, but it is not valid. And when the Prophet says la salatu salam, la sala de Bie how buratti
there is no prayer. While there is food being served,
there is no prayer existing. No, I prayed and the food is in front of you. Brianna is in front of me. You can see the steam
and it's meat. I don't eat chicken banana. It's okay. Is it valid? It is valid. Is it complete? No, it's not complete. So this is the negation in all of the Quran and Sunnah. Either the existence or the validity or the completion. So now we come to the prophets as Sonam no one of you, none of you will have faith. So I will not have faith meaning existence.
Probably, I don't know. How do I know by looking in other a hadith
such as Omar was once with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.
And all of a sudden Omar said bye bye Allah or prophet of Allah. You are dear to me, than my family, my children, my father, everything except myself.
More beloved to me than anything on earth except,
except me, I love myself more than so the Prophet says, Norma, until I'm more beloved to you, than your soul between your, in your chest shower, took a few seconds, thought of it, which is why a lot of you are more beloved to me than my father and my children than the whole human race, and then myself,
the prophecy, now
you have become a full fledged.
So the Prophet when I'm on set to him, except myself did not tell him,
lie to me, none of you will have faith that the existence is not there, which means that yes, the man is there, but the validity, or the completion are doubtful, until you complete it. And this is why
the scholars say that loving yourself is not sure.
Loving the Prophet at a saucer or someone else is by choice. And in, you cannot be sincere in loving the Prophet alayhi salaatu setup until you give priority to following him, believing in Him and implementing what he said over every aspect of your life. And if you look at it, logically, you will understand it.
You are not to your father, your love to your children. Your love to anyone is subjective to natural love, and what they provide for you don't mean fine children say I hate my father.
Through a lot, don't you find fathers saying I hate my kids. They've displaced me they have done this and that. So this is subjective, with the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. It is not. It is unconditional. Because anytime you feel any form of hate, or lack of love, this takes you out of the fold of Islam, because you cannot hate the Prophet is that and no one hates it. So even those who do not acknowledge it or know it like
in the beginning, you may think that I love the profits, but not to that extent. He's not thinking straight. He loves the profit, so love more than anything else, but he's not thinking straight. Because what did the Prophet do to us on a saucer? He got us out from darkness into the light.
There is no possible way of entering paradise, which is eternal name, eternal enjoyment, except through him. And there is no way we can stay out of Hellfire except through him and avoiding what he told us not to do. So our love to him. Salalah
is unlike any other human being on Earth. Regardless whether he's a father he's a son, or he does he is one of the spouses.
insincerity. May Allah have mercy on his soul says in the defeat of the fire.
Allah says the Prophet is more worthy of the believers than themselves. How can someone be more worthy than myself? This is possible zaidan nithin
he was captured
and he was taking to Mecca to be executed.
And while he was brought to be executed, I was opn who was the commander of the time mela division, told him Zane Would you like to be among your wife and children in Medina
and the Prophet Allah is in your place
What did he say? He says by a lie. I would not like to be in Medina, between my wife and children in my home, and the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is in Medina in his home and there's a thorn coming to his foot,
let alone being executed, not even a thorn coming in and harming him in Medina. No, I'd rather be executed rather than him getting this. This is true love to the Prophet, Allah Himself.
He is the most beloved to our heart.
And he is more of us than us to ourselves. That is why whenever there is a contradiction between what he ordered us to do, and what we want to do, we always give president we always give priority to what He commands us to do.
the scholars say,
that people have to others can be of three categories, one, loving
and praising, such as loving of parents, loving of scholars, loving of rulers, it can be the love of mercy.
And this is manifested when you love your children, and
grandchildren. Thirdly, to love someone who is in the same level of you, that when you love your spouse, or you love, a friend or a colleague, the prophets love
them has to be
more than all of that.
