hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Karim
wala Ali was Hobie woman is standing by Suniti he laomi Deen
All praise is due to Allah and melas Peace and blessings beyond the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and an all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day
loving the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
is the 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 a corner or hub by LA, until I become more beloved to him or her.
Meanwhile, Ed, while while Eddie, when nasiha Jain,
more beloved than his parents, or her parents, their children
or any among human beings.
One has not truly believed
until Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu ala salah, some 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 mean
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, amagno hubub
the Prophet SAW Salem is more beloved to him.
Then all of this except for himself.
And the province of Salem told him you have not
for a bit of time, and then he said,
yes, you're 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 you. Basically, it is clear. You love your parents, they raised you.
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 Allah did not have made it a condition of faith.
Because Allah clearly states in the Quran law you can live for long enough son, in which
Allah does not burden anyone beyond his or her capacity.
Allah is fair. Well, I have Limra Buka. A Haida 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 Rasul allah sallallahu Sallam with Abu Bakar
when they were in the cave,
during the hedgerow
when Abu Bakar was there with Prophet Muhammad sallahu wa salam, 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? No. 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 Allah by way of this person.
You are now in spiritual bondage.
You're a spiritual slave to that person.
has been undermined,
has been stolen.
You have been tricked. It's a lie.
That is why
I Shara de la and her narrated the Prophet Muhammad Salah suddenly had said
regarding those people who claim that there is special knowledge. She said Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said clearly taarak to come Allah Mahajan, De Da. I've left you on a clear white plane.
Lei Aloha Kana Haria whose night is like it's day. It's so clear.
Nighttime you see what you would see in the day.
Lie is you wanna and anyone who deviates from it Illa Holic is destroyed.
That's the reality.
The truth of Islam
the elements of Eman
the love of Allah
all of it has been taught to us.
It is taught in
teachings conveyed to us by the companions of the Prophet sallahu wa salam, 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 what not to do, anna Muhammadan rasul Allah And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 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 Allah said, in the Quran, why am I in Tico and in Hawa in Hua illa wa, hewn, you ha, 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 nama Anna Bashara Miss loco, indeed, I'm a human being like you.
You Hi Elia
and nama ilaha illa whole wide
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 Catholic.
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 Prophet SAW Salem died.
And of course, the Sierra clarifies
the humanity of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam in the statement of Abu Bakar, the best of the OMA after Prophet Muhammad, Salah Abubaker, who said to the people,
those of you who were worshipping Mohamed, Salah Salem, know that Muhammad is dead.
But no those of you who are worshipping the God of Muhammad, the Lord of Muhammad, know that he is ever living.
So, here was Abu Bakar clearly stating that Muhammad sallahu wa sallam was dead.
So, this is the true status of Prophet Muhammad 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 sunnah?
is divided into two aspects.
One aspect of his sunnah which would be called
a sunnah, a Tabia.
The natural sunnah of a man
and a sunnah 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're talking about loving Rasul allah sallallahu wasallam. We have to know where to draw the line.
Now we know Abdullah bin Omar
the son of Amara no Hapa second Calif,
used to imitate the Prophet sallallahu 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 and everything.
And Prophet Muhammad sallahu wa sallam 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.
The point is the personal thing.
It's not the dean. Why? Because Abubaker didn't
he didn't do it. So don't tell me Abubaker didn't know the dean.
And left outer part of the dean and Abdullah bin Omar did know my possible
Oh my God didn't do it.
Man. If not find didn't do it. I'll even be tall. It didn't do it. These are the righteous caliphs, about whom the Prophet SAW sent him and said follow my sunnah and the sooner the righteous caliphs 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 deal 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 sunnah.
This is what information has been brought to us concerning
which is a part of our faith to know
which is why Prophet Muhammad wa salam had said, seeking knowledge is obligatory for every Muslim palpable enemy for either Allah Allah 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 Muhammad, Allah, 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 l 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 going to 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 sun
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 we 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 contemptor a boon Allah for Tabea oni Allah
if you desire to love Allah
then follow Mohamed Salah Salem and Allah 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 Allah, follow him and Allah will love you
Well, that doesn't answer the question I asked. What you said is true.
But what we said is Allah said in the Quran,
if you desire to love Allah, if you think you love Allah,
follow Mohammed Salah Salem and Allah will love you.
And I said, that, in order for us to develop the love of Allah of the Prophet SAW Salem, we must obey Him we must follow him.
But Allah didn't say that in the cry for
he did not make it the condition that the Prophet SAW Salem 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 Allah.
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 Allah to love us,
that is the ultimate goal.
Prophet Muhammad wa sallam 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 wa salam to us it's the goal of Allah loving us
so the whole issue of the love of the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem
its goal because you have to ask the question, okay, why did them the promises Allah 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 but there's another name for it, worship, it is a bi Di.
Anything which we do, which Allah loves us for is a bi Di.
So loving Prophet Muhammad, Salah Salem is a bother.
So the means that in loving Him, as we said, it requires knowing his status, knowing who he is who he was, in reality, not the false stories that have been made up. Those people who say that Proverbs says LM is not dead. What is the basis for that? They say because Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah 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 light.
He was not a human being.
He was a laws life a part of Allah's life means you're a part of Allah.
And if your light and light shines on light, does the light have a shadow?
No. Light makes a shadow. It doesn't 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 wa sallam. Is that a bada?
Yes, it is the bada but it is Schilke in a bada
that is where you end up. Once you don't know the proper status of Muhammad wa salam, 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 noise status, to know his Siraj 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 you've loved the 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 solar laws, Allah, Allah 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
Who 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 long
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 Salah.
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.
He will 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
talk about the beard.
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 perfumes are solemn involved himself in trivialities, which had no meaning which have no value are not important? Because that's what we say. If we say no, I don't need to grow my beard. So then what about what the Prophet SAW Selim said, You mean to say he was asking you 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.
A wrong thought.
This misguidance is from Shaytaan.
Whatever the prophets, Allah Sallam 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 school allah sallallahu wasallam.
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 methods should we follow?
The shopper is here to go to Pakistan, their hands. Go to Sudan. They are Maliki's to go to Saudi Arabia they're humble is
what what what must have should we really follow?
The mantra which we should really follow, he said was what? Obeying the Prophet Salah Salem, follow him.
Follow him and Allah will love us follow him is a bada. To follow him is a bada to follow the mud hub attributed to Abu Hanifa or Mr Malik or Shafi or
I met him the humble to follow them is not a bad
look at this too.
To be a Shafi is not a bad
but to follow Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is a bada.
These are the distinctions between the two
and that's why you will always hear me say in lectures. Abu Hanifa wasn't a Hanafi
Imam Shafi wasn't a Shafi
but Imam Shafi strove to follow Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam
He was among the leaders of the scholars of the past who guided people to follow Rasul allah sallallahu wasallam.
His way, his madhhab was the madhhab of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That's why he said in the Sahel Hadith from Mohammed Hubie. himself said that Abu Hanifa said exactly the same thing. If the Hadith turns out to be authentic, then that is my madhhab because my intention was to follow the authentic hadith from Rasul Allah. So Allah Allah Allah said,
but as a human being, he recognized that perhaps he may be following a hadith which was by if we had 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 mother. 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 Knute in every fajr prayer,
right, because the hadith is not authentic.
Mr. Musharraf, 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 connote in every Fajr, which is now a part of the MCG hub,
the Shafi madhhab
and that is among the rulings which actually is attributable to Imam Shafi
is a mistake is an error
of Imam Shafi and he was a human being, and he had 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 connote in every fighter, 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 sunnah of his Syrah, 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 it.
I gave the answer already.
In the previous discussion, I gave the answer. So, why,
why has the Prophet SAW Salem, based on Rocky on Revelation made why did he make
loving him more than anything else?
A necessary principle for the completion of faith
because loving him is a bada.
Would you agree those who agree with APA Chanda? That's what he said. Put your hand up if you agree. So many little hands that people don't want to put it all the way up. Why? What are you afraid of?
Do you agree or not put your hand up? Yeah, that's true.
That's what it is.
Because loving him as we said,
Knowing his status
that's necessary for a bother
admiring him through his Syrah, knowing his Syrah, that is kind of a bad and obeying Him
is obeying Allah. That's what Allah said. Well, my internet my YouTube Rasul Allah, whoever obeys the messenger has obeyed Allah.
So we're loving the messenger
in order to love Allah.
That is the connection for for our a bada, to become complete, we need to love him. And loving Him we said meant following him.
And that's why Allah Subhana Allah said in the Quran, lucha de cana la confy Rasulillah. He was swattin Hasina.
There is in the Messenger of Allah for you the best of examples. For those who believe in Allah and 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 now 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. I'm taking your life
we have to say was that the way of Rasul Allah, so Allah with sunnah
that wasn't his way.
And that's easy to do.
Maybe this person is not even praying. He could be taking drugs.
You know, it could be the farthest away from Islam that you can imagine.
And this is the factor in the Muslim world today. If you tell like Muslim, you don't love the messenger of Allah.
Or you tell them you're not a true Muslim because you're not praying and 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 are also a caster.
And he will come and get you.
This is the state of the OMA today in ignorance of what constitutes love of the prophets Allah Salaam.
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 profit.
Trace book, T shirts
and if you say that massacre in France
was not right it's how you don't love the Prophet is enemies of the prophets,
your enemy of the Prophet
we need to put the love of the Prophet SAW Salem in its proper context
and with that we can begin the process of change
bringing love of Prophet Muhammad Salah back into our lives and 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. She don't love the profits on some
hobbies, you know, you hate the profits.
Yeah, Salafi Wahabis the heat pumps, that's what 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 performers, I sell them 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,
attract 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 shaytaan came and gave it the name
Shudra to hold the tree of eternal life.
To catch the heart of Adam Sampson, celebrating the promise of Solomon's birthday.
You will hear the 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't do we can't do better.
This is the line of reasoning that you shaped on making it seem attractive.
And we ended up doing what is displeasing to Allah. Instead of earning the love of Allah, we earn 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 hair from the beard of the Prophet saw some
people go there and
Touch tripe, that's in glass case, but they touch the case.
For Baraka, there's
no end of things like this. In the writings you will find on the internet books, calling us to do all kinds of weird things. There's one book called Shamala Timothy, in which it is mentioned there, that if you want to dream of the Prophet SAW Salem
because of course promises Allah said Whoever sees me in a dream has seen me because she upon cannot take my form.
authentic hadith from Rasul Allah, Allah. 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 Tirmidhi is the classical scholar of Hadith. His book Shamaya legitimate is our authentic text reliable, but the commentaries changed the intent of a Tirmidhi
they turned the sunnah of Prophet masala his natural sunnah into
seeking the love of the Prophet SAW Salem through artifacts, religious artifacts, so he said,
commentator if you want to see Prophet Muhammad wa sallam in your dream,
draw a picture of his sandals.
And in the footnote, they have a picture of what the 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, you go to the Topkapi Museum, they have a pair of sandals of the prophets
footprint, his footprint, supposedly in stone.
These are all false, false artifacts. So that picture of the sandal what you do is you draw it on paper, folded paper, put it under your pillow, when going to sleep, and you will dream of Rasulullah sallallahu Sana.
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 Allah and what he did as a human being personal,
individual choices to know at the same time, his Syrah, his life, the details of his life which are authentic,
not false Syrah like what the Shiites have written, for example, you can find in the
their main book of Hadith, by Al Collini.
A suppose it Hadith, in which it says that Prophet Muhammad wa sallam went to visit
the wife of Abu tonik
Ali bin Abi Talan, was in her womb
he was a big baby, a fetus, a baby in her womb.
And when he came to visit her,
he heard Ali ibn Abi Talib reciting Quran from her room
what do you do with that?
Ali bin Abi Talib, the Quran was revealed to him before Muhammad SAW Salah
that's what it say.
And he was reciting it as a fetus. Imagine that Allah Akbar.
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 Muhammad and light they said, that light split.
One became the Muhammad and light and the other one became Ali's light.
So you 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 pico Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu.
Is it possible to see the Prophet SAW Selim in a dream? Yes, we said there's authentic hadith and recite Salim said Whoever has seen me in a dream has seen me
because shaytan cannot take my form. But when people said that from the tablet
In the time of the Sahaba, after the process element 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 Muhammad Salah, the Sahaba used to ask them, What did he look like?
And if they described him in other than the way he looked like he said, Well, you didn't see him shaitan tricked you.
So shaytaan can take a form, which is not
in the way problems are solved 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 wasallam, as he was authentically described, for example, an extra mile
you can thank Allah Subhana Allah for showing you the prophets, Allah wa sallam, 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 Allah
to give you that
good dream, bro. Your Hasina.
if you see what you thought to be Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam, and he tells you anything
which goes against the teachings of Islam, because you have people who will claim well in the dream problems asylum 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 Quran
Akima Salah Lee Vickrey
established the prayer in order to remember me
and your hearts when the our hearts beat
you put that stethoscope on your heart. You will hear your heart saying boop, boop, boop. But when you put that sketch Tessa scope on my heart, it says Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar, Allahu Akbar. So I do need to pray anymore.
from the sisters,
no, go ahead.
take good from physical
We go to the masjid in Medina. You will see people walking in there and wiping the pillars pillar after pillar and wiping on themselves.
When they're making Tawaf
they tried 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.
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 hear me. And the only reason why I'm kissing you is because I saw Rasul allah sallallahu wasallam do so.
That is the bottom line.
So we don't take especial baraka from the artifacts around us. In the time of Prophet Muhammad wa sallam, 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, they have the big
like visors with the bottles, where they were put drink in and they would pass it around and he would drink and the one next to him Sahabi would try to put his lips on the same place that Rasul Allah salon put his lips
that is okay for a solo rasa salah. But now, what happens when they take that and they apply it to people of our time,
when he was making wudu the water fell into a container people would take that to do that work water and make will do from it.
Now, you know after
snake NOSM, Alico BRUCEI died,
you go to their website, the Naqshbandi website, for the followers of snake Nadhim.
And you will find his wudu water on sale
you can go you they will send you send the money and they will send you you know some vial with his with water. And if now that water is the regular water is clear, it looks just like regular water, you could have just taken from the top put it nobody in the toilet just is with water. But now, if you get a bottle with
particles in it,
particles, when he made will do sometimes he was dirty. So when you wash the water came in, there are particles in it. Now that will do water is worth like five times the pure will the water.
You've got particles from the share
or the snake.
So this is the Tabarrok which we say is false, it's misguided. Nobody was known to do that to Abu Bakar. And he was the best of the OMA after assume Lasala why didn't the rest of the Sahaba and the tabby in try to do that for him? Why didn't they do it for all might have no photographer or a smile or Ollie? 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 hadith
are generally known.
If we follow Sahih Bukhari sahih, Muslim
and authenticated versions of pseudonym themajor, Tirmidhi, and nasai aboda ode
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 hammock Allah,
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 hadith 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 Quran, coutume la Tala moon, 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 Hadith you can't figure out which one is which and you can't know what the Sunnah is because this one said that and that one said, No,
that's not really the case.
The authentic hadith are known.
The weak Hadith, I know yes, there are some Hadith which are disputed, but there are a few. When you look at all of the authentic hadith 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 you said but what if this scholar who depended on he told us that this hadith sahih and it wasn't?
Well, what if Imam Shafi told us that making committing Fajr was sahih? And it wasn't?
What's the difference? When Imam Shafi made that ruling based on the knowledge that he had, he gets rewarded 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 share 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
