“Loving the Prophet” is a title taken form a well known authentic hadith in which the Prophet was quoted as saying, “None of you has truly believed until I become more beloved to him/her than his/her parents, their children or any other human beings.” Therefore, you are not a complete believer until the Prophet becomes more beloved to you than anyone else. How can we develop a love that is stronger than our love towards our parents or children? Is it possible for this kind of love to exist in our hearts?
alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim.
Allah Allah was hobby woman is standing at he Eli oma Dean.
All praise is due to a law and Maalox, peace and blessings beyond the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.
Loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
is a title
a well known Hadith, authentic hadith
in the most authentic books of Hadith,
in which the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was quoted as saying,
lie you may know I had to come.
None of you
has truly believed had akuna Habiba LA, until I become more beloved to him or her.
Meanwhile Ed, he well while I D, when nasty edge mine
more Beloved, then his parents or her parents, their children
or any among human beings.
One has not truly believed
until prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Sunday narrations,
the prophet, Allah and the Prophet.
But this one, this talk this evening, is focusing on
the love of the Prophet
So, faith is not complete, actually, the the text of the Hadith says
no one believes.
Meaning if you don't have this, you are not a believer, but the scholars have explained it to me in
not a complete believer.
Until the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam becomes more beloved to us than our parents, our children, and all of humankind. In some narrations or might have known kebab
the prophet SAW Selim is more beloved to him
than all of this except for himself.
And the problem is our solemn told him you have not
for a bit of time, and then he said,
yes, you are even more beloved to me than myself.
And he said, Now you have arrived.
So this concept of loving the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is a very basic
aspect of faith.
But for most of us, it is difficult to grasp, practically speaking.
Because your love of your parents.
Nobody has to tell you why you should love your parents how you should love him. Basically, it is clear. You love your parents. They raised you.
Do you love your children, you raise them, you brought them into existence.
So your love of your parents and your children is a natural love.
Now we don't have that relationship with Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
either as our father or as our child.
So then the question
that remains to be
asked is how?
How is it? Or how could we develop a love
which was so strong,
it would be greater than our love of our parents and our children.
How to achieve that?
That is the ultimate,
the perfection of faith.
And it has to be achievable. Otherwise, the Prophet Muhammad SAW a certain number does not have made it a condition of faith.
Because the law clearly states in the crime law you can live for long enough son in
law does not burden anyone beyond his or her capacity.
Allies fair? Well, I have limra buka. I had your Lord is not unfair to anyone.
So this is something attainable
by each and every one of us.
It's not just for certain special people, a special category or group of people.
And the knowledge of how to achieve it must be common knowledge. If it's achievable by everybody, then
it must be common knowledge.
You have some people who say no, no, it's not achievable by everybody. Only certain special people can achieve it.
Because the knowledge of it is special knowledge.
passed along a special chain of narrators.
It was hidden knowledge shared
by Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, with Abu Bakar.
When they were in the cave,
during the hedra
when abubaker was there with Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, he taught him some special
And it is with that special information that you can attain this. So obviously, who knows who has that special information? Anybody here received that special information now, so it means we're all lost.
But this is not Islam.
This is not Islam.
This is a tale, a fable, which was made up
to bond people to put people in spiritual bondage to others.
Because when you accept that this person has this special knowledge, you can only reach a law by way of this person.
You are now in spiritual bondage.
You're a spiritual slave to that person.
You're a man
has been undermined,
has been stolen.
You have been tricked. It's a lie.
That is why
I Shara de la narrated the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam I'd said
regarding those people who claim that there is special knowledge she said Prophet Mohammed Salim said clearly taarak to come Allah Mahajan. vadar I've left you on a clear white plain.
lei aloha Kana haria. Whose night is like it's day. It's so clear.
Nighttime you see what you would see in the de
la is Ilana and anyone who deviates from it. Illa Holic is destroyed
that's the reality.
The truth of Islam
the elements of a man,
the love of Allah and His messenger.
All of it has been taught to us.
It is taught in
teachings conveyed to us by the companions of the Prophet sallahu wa sallam, he explained, they explained, he explained to them, whatever they didn't understand, they asked him questions, they got the clarity, and they passed it on.
And that has been collected and preserved.
So, there are no hidden areas of Islam. So, the love of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam
the property of a special group. So,
how do we get it?
How do we attain it?
There are three main ways.
we have to know
the status of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. We have to understand that status.
When we say when a shadow under Muhammadan rasul Allah and we bear witness that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam was the Messenger of Allah is the Messenger of Allah.
When we say that,
it is contained
the definition of his status, he was a messenger of Allah,
a messenger of Allah.
What he spoke, what he conveyed
was from Allah.
As a law said in the Quran, warm is typical and in how,
in who, what,
why, when you have, he did not speak from his desires.
Indeed, what he spoke, what he conveyed, was revelation which came to him.
So, his status
was a medium
through which Allah communicated to humankind.
That is his status.
A messenger of Allah.
with regards to his status,
Allah also said
or had him say, call in ama and abbatial, Miss lucam indeed, I'm a human being like you.
You Hi Ella.
Anima Illa hukum Allahu wa.
But it was revealed to me, what distinguishes me from the rest of you human beings, is that it was revealed to me that your God
is One True, unique God.
And all that is implied by it.
But he was a man like us.
There are people
who claim he wasn't a man like us.
You have a whole body of people millions
in India and Pakistan,
Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
did not die.
And if you say that he died,
they declare you to be a disbeliever.
You are a Kaffir.
Maybe you find it very difficult to believe.
You don't have that group present here. They may be but they're small numbers. So it's not there's no impact.
Everybody basically accepts here that the Putnam says alum died.
And of course the Syrah clarifies
the humanity of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam in the statement of Abu Bakar, the best of the oma after Prophet Mohammed Salah Abu bakkar, who said to the people,
those of you who were worshipping Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, know that Muhammad is dead.
But know those of you who are worshipping the God of Muhammad, the Lord of Mohammed, know that he is ever living.
So, here was aboubaker, clearly stating that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam was dead.
So, this is the true status says that he was in fact, a human being.
But he received revelation
which distinguished him from other human beings.
Now, the result of that
is that his son,
his son now
is divided into two aspects.
One aspect of Asana which would be called
Asana, a Toby area,
the natural sweetener of a man
and Asana, a tertiary area and the legal Sunnah
of the prophet of Allah.
So there's two aspects to his Sunnah.
Those things which he did as a man,
a human being,
his own personal choices
which we are not required to follow.
And those things which he did, he said he approved
as a messenger of Allah based on revelation which we are required to follow
these are the two aspects because when we are talking about loving Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam we have to know where to draw the line
now we know I'm to live in Mr.
Sun Um, I don't know how Bob second Calif
used to imitate the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam in everything that he did.
The way he cut his hair, the way he dressed, the way he walked. He put the ring on his right finger, he put it on the right finger, you take the ring off, you take the ring off, he did whatever Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah did that he could do as a man he imitated him in everything.
And Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam did not tell him not to do that.
So if somebody chooses to do that, it is legitimate. You could however,
that is not the deal.
is the point is the personal thing.
It's not the deal. Why? Because Abu Bakr didn't. We didn't do it. So don't tell me Abubakar didn't know the dean
and left out the part of the dean and I'm delighted but I did know my possible.
Oh, my laptop didn't do it.
Man. If not, Fran didn't do it. I live in LA Vitaly didn't do these are the righteous scallops, about whom the profits are
Solomon said follow my son and the son of the righteous callous after me.
And none of them did it.
So what do we know from that?
It's not required. It's not a part of the deen per se
if you choose to do it
but it is not a part of the deal.
It doesn't make you a better Muslim than anyone else
to do that.
So, the rest
which was based on revelation,
we need to know.
In order to love the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam we have to love
what he or what constitutes him, his Sunnah.
His legal so now
this is what information has been brought to us concerning him.
Which is a part of our faith to know
which is why Prophet Muhammad SAW Solomon said, seeking knowledge is obligatory for every Muslim, tolerable enemy for either luckily Muslim.
obligatory to know the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam because to know the Sunnah
is to know him
to know what he said what he did.
What he approved, based on revelation is to know him as the Messenger of Allah.
in order for us to develop the love of Prophet Mohammed Al salam, we need to know his Syrah, his biography, his life,
all of the aspects of his life
that we can
we should know him, know him as a person, the more you know about him,
the more you can develop that love for him, the less you know, the more difficult it is naturally.
So it is important for us on one hand
to know the religion
via his Sunnah
as it comes to us through His Sunnah,
which we strive to do as much as we can
we make sure that what we're doing is based on his Sunnah.
And we need to know about him as a person, how he lived his life.
In order for us to admire him
to know the sacrifices that he made
the struggles that he was faced with,
to know how he dealt with his family, his children,
his companions, those who did ill to him, how he responded to them, so we can admire him.
If we see him doing things that nobody does,
nobody would be willing to do today even you yourself, you know, within yourself, I could never do that.
And you see him doing it. Naturally. You're gonna say,
you're going to your your, your feeling towards him, it's going to be much stronger, isn't it? If you know the student
through his Syrah
and you know his Syrah
as it has been authenticated, important point, because it's not just any Syrah because there are many books that are written about him.
but some of these books contain
false information, incorrect information.
So he should know what is correct and what is not.
So we can truly admire him because if we are getting misinformation, we may feel and understand the wrong
understanding or the wrong feeling towards him
and what he did.
The third principle
is that we must obey Him.
If we are to develop a love for Him, then we must obey Him.
Allah told us in the Quran, and contempt to hipbone Allah, for Tabby or near Milan.
If you desire to love the law,
then follow Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and the law will love you.
Now, he didn't say this about loving the prophets.
Why is that?
If he said,
if you desire to love the messenger,
follow Him and the messenger will love you.
Why didn't say that?
Why did he say if you desire to love a law, follow Him and allow him love you.
Well, that doesn't answer the question I asked. What you said is true.
But what we said is a law said in the crime,
if you desire to love a law or if you think you love a law,
follow Mohamed Salah salam, and the law will love you.
And I said that, in order for us to develop the love of a lot of the prophets of Salaam, we must obey Him, we must follow him.
But I didn't say that.
he did not make it the condition that the prophet SAW Selim love us.
That's what we are seeking, that he will love us if we follow him.
Yeah, that's right. You're seeking the love of a law.
You're not seeking the love of Prophet Muhammad? sallallahu wasallam?
Because he doesn't know us.
He never heard of us.
Who are we relative to him?
So there is no condition about him loving us.
The condition is about Allah loving us. Because Allah knows all of us.
we want a law to love us,
that is the ultimate goal.
Prophet Mohammed says alum loved his mother and father.
Right? Nobody doubts that.
could his love benefit them?
He loved I will tell him
right. But was his love able to save Abu Talib from the Hellfire No.
So the goal is not the love of Prophet Muhammad SAW Salaam to us. It's the goal of Allah loving us.
So the whole issue of the love of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salaam.
Because you have to ask the question Okay. Why did then the seller make this condition of loving him for our faith to be complete? Why did he make that a condition?
The condition is for us to love him, so that Allah would love us.
Because if we do anything
because of which Allah loves us, then it means that thing which we have done is what?
following the Prophet is another name for it, worship, it is a bi di,
anything which we do, which Allah loves us for is a badass
So, loving Prophet Mohammed salatu salam is a badass.
So that means that in loving him, as we said, it requires knowing your status, knowing who he is who he was, in reality, not the false stories that have been made up. Those people who say that province SLM is not dead, that what is the basis for that? They say, because proper Hamza Salam was created from the light of Allah.
And they called his light and nor al Mohammadi
the Mohammedan light
and they wrote books,
among them, the shadow less prophet
because he was like,
he was not a human being.
He was a laws like a part of our laws, life means you're a part of a law.
And if you are light and light shines on light, light have a shadow.
No light makes a shadow. It does not have a shadow.
So they wrote a whole book called The Shadow less prophet
So that concept is a misunderstanding. And where do you end up with that concept? You end up worshipping Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is that a bother?
Yes, it is ibadah but it is
in a bada.
That is where you end up. Once you don't know the proper status of Mohammed Salim you don't know who he was, know his humanity and his prophethood and be able to distinguish between the two and be clear on it. Then you end up worshipping Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam which is shirk.
So, for us to achieve that love, we said, to know his status, to know his Syrah, to understand what he went through,
to feel close to who he was,
through information concerning his life. When you read about the life of those who sacrificed here and there you loved, it comes in your heart for them, you admire them.
So this is one of the ways by which we build the love of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. And the third way we said is to obey Him.
To obey Him.
This is how we develop a love for our solar laws allow them to obey Him
in whatever he has told us. So if he told us grow your beards, and trim your mustaches, you can't love him without growing your beard and trim your mustache.
If you claim to love Him, we say your claim is
We can't say you don't have any love for him, but your love is deficient.
And that external expression is simple.
That is the simpler part.
The true love which comes from the heart.
It's far more difficult than just to stop shaving.
That's all growing a beard involves stop shaving. Not something you need to do, but not do.
Right just stop simple.
And you can achieve that.
But when you do it, after having shaven yourself for so many years, and so many people tell you how nice you look how young you look, and all these different things, you feel nice with it.
Then to grow your beard,
you start to think I don't look so nice anymore. I'm now looking older, and all these other things that come along with it. When you're able to rise above that,
rise above that, and know that I am trying my best to follow Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.
So since he said grow your beards, I know I need to do it,
that it will change me, it will cause a change within me.
Which for sure will make me a better person if I do it sincerely. Because people say well, no, you know, Eman is nothing your beard.
The longer your beard the greater a man. No.
People say no. I know people who have big beards and they're evil people.
And I know people who are clean shaven and they're very good people.
this is a common argument people say, tell me about the beer.
But if it wasn't, if the beard had no significance, why do we think Rasulullah saw Salim said grow your beard and trim your mustache?
Do we think that problems are solved them involve themselves and trivialities which had no meaning which have no value are not important, because that's what we say. If we say not only to grow my beard. So then what about what the prophet SAW Selim said, You mean to say he was asked me to do something you don't need to do?
You have to think about that one.
He was asking us to do something, which we really don't need to do.
That is a serious thought.
this misguidance is from shaytaan.
Whatever the profits a lot of a sudden told us to do. We need to do it as much as we can.
As much as we can, whatever we can do of it, we need to do it. This is part of building our love for a solo law solo while Salah,
just like your father, you say you love your father, but everything he tells you to do, you don't want to do.
What does he think?
My son loves me, but he doesn't want to do what I asked him to do.
What kind of love is that?
You have to say there's something wrong with that concept.
is expressed in your obedience. And that's why it is a part of the declaration of our faith.
And that's why when people ask, Well,
what Muslim should we follow?
the shofar is here. To go to Pakistan, the hanafis go to Sudan. They are Maliki's to go to Saudi Arabia, the humble is
what what what must have should we really follow?
The manner which we should really follow we said was what? obeying the prophets Allah, Allah follow him.
Follow him and a law with love us follow him is a bother to follow him is a bother to follow the madhhab attributed to Abu hanifa or Mr. Malik or Shafi or
I've made him the humble to follow them is not a bad
look at this too.
To be a Shafi is not a bother
but to follow Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam is a bother
these are the distinctions between the two
and that's why he will always hear me say in lectures. Abu hanifa wasn't a Hanafi
Imam Shafi wasn't
but the Imam Shafi strove to follow Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.
He was among the leaders of the scholars of the past, who guided people to follow Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.
His way, his mother's hub was the mud hub of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. That's why he said it, I saw one Hadith from a woman hubby. He Himself said that Abu hanifa said exactly the same thing. If the Hadees turns out to be authentic, then that is my madhhab because my intention was to follow the authentic hadith from Rasulullah sallallahu.
But as a human being, he recognized that perhaps he may be following a hot day for
a week and if
the information that came to him came through
in authentic sources, which he didn't grasp,
because as a human being, his knowledge is not perfect. So he will make mistakes. And that's why he said to his followers, to those who studied under him, if the Hadith is authentic, then that is my true matter. That's what I was trying to follow the authentic hadith. So, if you find one of my rulings, based on my understanding of a Hadith, which turns out to be not authentic, like
doing Kanoute in every fudger prayer,
right, because the Hadees is not authentic.
A mama shop, I thought it was
he understood that, though there was weakness in it.
It was the only Hadith available. So he did the ruling according to it.
he did what he could with the knowledge that he had, but he was a human being.
So, the practice of kuhnert in every fudger, which is now a part of the month hub,
the sharper image.
And that is among the rulings which actually is attributable to Imam Shafi
is a mistake is an error
of the mama Shafi and he was a human being, and he has no problem with it. Or we should have no problem in recognizing once the scholars of Hadith have shown us that the Hadith in fact, is not authentic. That in fact, the prophet SAW Selim did not do connauton every fudger. He did it on some occasions. But it was not something he did all the time every day didn't do that.
Then we leave it
because we're not following rulings, we're trying to follow Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. That's the point.
So, if we are to develop the love for him, by obeying Him, then we have to have correct knowledge of his son of his era, to be able to follow him,
he deserved to be followed.
Now, the big question, we said, after all, that,
after looking at all the house, the big question which remains, which I did address before
loving the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
so important, that one's faith is not complete, without
I gave the answer already.
In the previous discussion, I gave the answer. So why,
why has the prophet SAW Salaam based on rocky on revelation made? Why does he make
loving him more than anything else?
A necessary principle for the completion of faith.
Ah, because loving him is a badass.
Would you agree those who agree with that pachanga
That's what he said. Put your hand up if you agree. So many
people don't want to put it all the way up. Why? What are you afraid of? Do you agree or not? agenda? Yeah, that's true.
That's what it is.
Because loving him, as we said,
knowing his status
that's necessary for anybody.
admiring him through his Syrah, knowing his Syrah, that is part of me bad. And obeying Him
is obeying the law. That's what the law said, on my internet, my YouTube soon for Allah, whoever obeys the messenger has obeyed Allah.
So we're loving the messenger.
In order to love Allah.
That is the connection for our for our a bother to become complete. We need to love him. And loving Him, we said meant following him.
And that's why a lot smarter Allah said in the crime law, the canon law Confederacy, the law, he was swattin.
There is in the Messenger of Allah for you the best of examples. For those who believe in along the last day that we believe in Allah and the Last Day,
then he is the best example for us.
So the goal of it all,
is to worship Allah in the most complete way.
And this is the element. This is the portion of worship, that most of us neglect.
We haven't focused on this area. We all talk about it. We all have heard about it. We all know it's supposed to be there. But it's vague. In our minds. It's a vague concept. It's not crystal clear. So I hope these points that I've brought out
tonight, these points have made crystal clear what loving the messenger means and why we need to love him, and how we should love him.
Once we understand that,
then the idea that if somebody says something bad about the messenger, we should no go take an ak 47 and go into his office and just shoot him down. We have to question
Is that how you show your love? I mean, that's what he says, I'm doing it out of love of the Messenger of Allah. And
taking your life,
we have to say, was that the way of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.
It wasn't his way.
And that's easy to do.
Maybe this person is not even praying. He could be taking drugs.
You know, he could be the farthest away from Islam that you can imagine.
And this is the factor in the Muslim world today. If you tell that Muslim you don't love the Messenger of Allah,
or you tell him you're not a true Muslim because you're not praying and so on. So he'll kill you
in a minute.
But the true understanding of what it means to love Allah, Missy,
to love the Messenger of Allah, unknown.
It's just an emotional thing now.
You know, and if you don't share in that emotion, then that person he will say you also are captured
and he will come and get you.
This is the state of the oma today in ignorance of what constitutes love of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
People have replaced
what should have been with what shouldn't be.
They have used methods and justified actions with the love of the Messenger of Allah. I love the Prophet
And if you say that massacre in France was not right, if you don't love the Prophet, these are enemies of the Prophet,
your enemy of the Prophet.
we need to put the love of the prophet SAW Selim in its proper context.
And with that, we can begin the process of change.
Bringing love of Prophet Muhammad wa salam back into our lives in the lives of our children,
knowing that love of the province monster, Salah is not celebrating his birthday.
you don't want to celebrate his birthday. He don't love the profits on some
hobbies, you know, you hate the profits.
Yeah, Salafi wahabis, the hate promises, so this
why because they don't want to celebrate the birthday of the Prophet sighs.
But that's not about it at all.
loving him, is doing things which were displeasing to him.
The music, the dance, the song, the all the different things that they're doing. And these are things problems are seldom for bed. So how can they possibly be loving him while doing the very things he forbade?
It's a delusion. It's a satanic delusion. Satan has made what was prohibited,
attractive to them, just as he did to Adam, in the garden, that tree which he was forbidden, which Allah didn't give any name to shape on came and gave me the name
shudra to hold the tree of eternal life
to catch the heart of Adam. So same thing, celebrating the birthday.
You will hear the well the whole world is celebrating the birthday of Jesus Christ. All the Christians, the billions of Christians who celebrated his Prophet Muhammad says I'm greater than Jesus.
Isn't he the greatest prophet of Allah. So if they can do all of that to me we can do we can do better.
This is the line of reasoning that she said on
making it seem attractive.
And we ended up doing what is displeasing to Allah. Instead of earning the love of Allah, we earned the Wrath of Allah his displeasure
in doing that,
and so on and so forth.
Or it is
Kashmir you have the Hazrat Baal mosque
a mosque shrine dedicated to a hear from the beard of the prophet SAW Some
people go there and
Touch type this in glass case, but the touch the case
no end of things like this. And the writings you will find on the internet books, calling us to do all kinds of weird things. There's one book called shamala Amelie, in which it is mentioned there, that if you want to dream of the prophet SAW some
because of course, Francois Salim said, Whoever sees me in a dream has seen me because shavon cannot take my form.
authentic hadith from Rasulullah saw Salah So, in this book shamala tirmidhi as it was translated in with commentaries in Urdu,
the audio version is translated into English. The commentator says in the footnotes because Imam a Timothy was a classical scholar of Hadith, his book shamaya legitime. These authentic texts reliable but the commentaries changed
The intent of eternity.
They turned the Sunnah of Prophet Moses Allah his natural sooner into a bada.
Seeking the love of the prophet SAW asylum through artifacts, religious artifacts, so he said,
commentator if you want to see Prophet Mohammed Salah Salaam in your dream,
draw a picture of his sandals.
And in the footnote, they have a picture of what is sandals look like.
You can see what was supposed to be sandals in Topkapi Museum in Turkey. Those of you that have been to Turkey, they go to the Topkapi Museum, they have a pair of sandals of the prophets.
footprint is footprint, supposedly in stone.
These are all false, false artifacts. So that picture of the sander what you do is you draw it on paper, folded paper, put it under your pillow, when going to sleep, and your dream of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.
So, when we go that far, when we go in those directions, we're lost. We're lost as an oma. And the only way to get back to the correct path
is to know who Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam really was, to be able to distinguish between what he did as a messenger of a law and what he did as a human being, personal,
to know at the same time, his Syrah, his life, the details of his life, which are authentic.
Not false Sierra like what the Shiites have written for example, you can find in the
their main book of haddish by Alka Laney.
A suppose it Hadith in which it says the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salam went to visit
the wife of Abu Talib
Ali Vitali was in her womb
he was a bit baby, a fetus, a baby in her womb.
And when he came to visit her, he heard Ali Ibn Abi taalib reciting Koran from her womb
what do you do with that?
Alibaba Vitaly, the Quran was revealed to him before Mohammed Salah.
That's what they say.
And he was reciting it as a fetus. Imagine that.
Insanity and they believe it. It's a miracle. Why? Because they say that that light which came from Allah,
the light which we know as amongst those people who believe that he didn't die as the Mohammed and light they said, that light split.
One became the Mohammedan light and the other one became a nice light.
So you'll believe that Yeah, you can believe that.
we know him,
know who he is, follow Him, obey Him, and the law will love us. And we will love him
as he deserves to be loved.
And in a way, which is a bother or worship of Allah,
which Allah accepts. And may He accepted from all of us and put us in paradise as a result of it. barakallahu li combs and I'm on a call Morocco to LA when a cattle
Is it possible to see the prophet SAW Selim in a dream? Yes. We said there was authentic hadith in ramsau salaam said Whoever has seen me
In a dream has seen me
because shaytaan cannot take my form. But when people said that from the tabea, in in the time of the Sahaba, after the process Allah died when they came to the Sahaba Sahaba and asked them
about their visions or their dreams which they had in which they saw Prophet Moses, Allah, the Sahaba used to ask them, What did he look like?
And if they described him in other than the way he looked like me, they said, Well, you didn't see him. Shaytan tricked you.
So shaytaan can take a form, which is not
in the way problems, I send them look and say, I am the messenger of Allah. That's the point. Not simply because you have a dream. And somebody in the dream says, I'm the Messenger of Allah means he was the Messenger of Allah and that dream, no, no.
And if you have a dream, in which you have seen the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, as he was authentically described, for example, in extra mile,
you can thank our last month Allah for showing you the profits for a lot of us alum and take it as an encouragement to try to follow him in the best way that you can. That's what
the purpose would be for a law
to give you that
good dream brought your Hasina
if you see what you thought to be Rasulullah, saw salah
and he tells you anything
which goes against the teachings of Islam, because you have people who will claim well in the dream problem was a solemn came to me. And he told me that I have perfected my faith, I no longer need to pray.
And from that they have narrated to their followers, that when you reach that stage, the stage which I have reached, let's say, we don't no longer need to pray because Allah said in the Koran.
Aki masala Lee Vickery
established the prayer in order to remember me and your hearts when their hearts beat.
You put that stethoscope on your heart, you will hear your heart saying boop, boop, boop. But when you put that sketch tested scope on my heart, it says Allah Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
So I don't need to pray anymore.
from the sisters.
No, go ahead.
take good from physical
If you go to the masjid in Medina, you'll see people walking in there and wiping the pillars pillar after pillar and wiping on themselves.
When they're making tawaf
they try to kiss the black stone.
And if they have a baby with them, they will rub the baby on the black stone also, believing that in rubbing it
you taking some Baraka, this concept is false. It's fake.
Um, I don't know how Bob
pointed to the black stone during tawaf and inform the people addressing the backstory, but informing the people. I know that you are only a stone.
You can neither benefit me, nor can you harm me. And the only reason why I'm kissing you is because I saw rasoolillah saliva wasallam do so.
That is the bottom line.
So we don't take especially Baraka from the artifacts
Around us in the time of Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam the Sahaba took Baraka from him.
Yes you can find narrations, different actions which Sahaba did which implied they were seeking Baraka they felt that this something which had been in contact with the prophet SAW Selim if he was drinking from a vessel that was the big
like vases with the bottles where they would put drink in and they would pass it around and he would drink and the one next to him Sahabi will try to put his lips on the same place that Rasulullah saw someone put his lips
that is okay for a solo masala But now what happens when they take that and they apply it to people of our time
when he was making would do the water fell into a container people will take that who do that work water and make will do from it
now you know after
snake nosm a cobra died
you go to their website the Natasha Bondi website for the followers of snake naadam
and you will find his woo water on sale
you can go to they will send you you send the money and they will send you you know some vial with his with the water and if now that water is the regular water is clear looks just like regular water he could have just taken from the top put it nobody's gonna tell you this is his water. But now if you get a bottle with
particles in it
particles when he made will do sometimes was dirty. So when he washed it, water came in there are particles in it. Now that would water is worth like five times the pure water
you've got particles from the ship
or the snake.
So this is the tabarrok which we say is false it's misguided. Nobody was known to do that to Abu Bakr and he was the best of the oma after a Sunni lotsa Salah. Why didn't the rest of the Sahaba and the tambourine try to do that for him? Why didn't they do it for all might have Nakata or a smile or Ali? Why not? If it were something good, then the first generation and those after them would be doing it. We don't find it. Among them.
The authentic hadebe
are generally known.
If we follow Sahih Bukhari Sahih, Muslim,
and authenticated versions of pseudonym de magia, tirmidhi and si E.
We're on the correct path.
And those narrations basically don't contradict each other, they're describing different things that we can do different things which he did things which we can apply in our lives, etc.
If there is dispute, etc, then you depend on the
scholar of your area, who you respect.
you depend on that scholar to identify for you.
Your Karma Karma?
You do you depend on that scholar to define and indicate for you what is most authentic.
That's what it is. You don't have to worry your head. You don't haven't studied the science of Hadith. So to try to determine which one if somebody says no that this is not authentic.
How do you know whether it is or it isn't you as somebody with some knowledge as Allah said, First Allah Allah, the creme de la tala mon, if you don't know ask those who know.
So that's how it's simple. In fact, it's very simple, but people make it complicated. You know, there are people who are spreading this rumor, you know, there are so many hobbies, you can't figure out which one is which. And you can know what this to net because this one said that and that one said, No.
It's not really the case.
They're authentic IDs are known.
The week IDs are known. Yes, there are some hobbies, which are disputed, but there are a few ways
You look at all of the authentic IDs which nobody
argues about those that are disputable are very few.
So then depend on the scholars of your area. They will clarify for you. And if they made a ruling, he said, but what if this scholar who we depended on, he told us that this had to say and it wasn't?
Well, what if Imam Shafi told us that making cannon fodder was so he had it wasn't?
What's the difference? When Imam Shafi made that ruling, based on the knowledge that he had, he gets reward for it.
He gets one reward.
When that scholar made the ruling based on the knowledge that he had, he gets one reward.
And if you follow Him, you sharing that reward
but if you know he is not correct, and you follow Him,
then you're in trouble.
Because you are following him in the way that only Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam deserves to be followed.
Is that clear? Charla
