Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
wa salatu wa salam O Allah Mallanna Viva La Mulana ba bada bada bada oma t he, whether
was Manny Rahim lapada
Rasulullah Hassan Hassan was tala tala in
Medina Sara palabras in respected Allah. Elysian brothers We begin by praising Almighty Allah for the favors Allah has bestowed upon us. And part of that favor and name self mentioned. Leopard manola.
I have done you a tremendous favor, is bosavi him. Rasulullah Minh unfussy him by granting you are a soul from your own kind. He's a human
like you are human, not in terms of status and stature. But in terms of attributes of being a human being. Allah has mentioned it as one of his great favors, and we send salutations upon our beloved Libya Kareem sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we bear witness that our beloved Nivea cream sauce, as he was commanded by Allah. Here you are Rasool boliviana de la la comme Arabic, ora Sol Allah commanded him, propagate, what Allah has revealed unto you, and you and I, we bear witness, not that the Beloved of Allah needs that evidence, but it is to our benefit. But as giving this evidence as unknotted Bella, Salah we're at danger Amana? One rumor that he had conveyed a last message and he
had fulfilled his responsibility and amanat and he had done so in the most beautiful prostyle way.
Brothers there are two aspects when we talk about Marisa cillum move this up. May Allah reward him spoke so eloquently about Nebojsa Salaam Bina Rama. What is the greatness of NaVi sauce? You and I will never ever be able to relate or listen to the greatness of NaVi sauce is equal to his greatness Never.
Never aerosol, amin mursaleen to Sacco he took
to Sakina he took Sacco in a Omaha Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam era Sunni amin katamon mousseline there is no one like you there is no one that you This is part of our conviction that there is no one like you. Let's deal for him. Medina, he loved Khurana he took Sacco in
our hearts don't have the capacity. Our tongues don't have the eloquence to describe you the way you are. There is no one like you to say In brief, the greatness we will never ever be able to do justice. However, we are never supposed to mystify the life of Navy SEALs to such an extent that we don't benefit from his life. For after all, Allah has made his life A perfect example nakara carnera poofy rasulillah he was wattana Santa. Verily in the life of Almighty Allah, you have the perfect example. Elijah 15 supatra in Santa Monica he mentions wama mana and as you may know,
Abbas Allah will Bashara Rasul Allah. Many people were denied from accepting the truth on this basis that they said about us Allah the word Hamza is the stiff army. Did Allah sin a human being as a prophet?
reply unto them oh prophet of Almighty Allah, colo Karna fill out of the mela
una vaca maggini. If the earth was inhabited by angels, I would have said the angels is a prophet. The earth is inhabited by human beings I have sent a human being is a prophet. If Allah would have sent interledger prophet un I would not have been able to benefit from an angel because angels do not experience hunger. They do not
experience, they do not have desires. The human being as a prophet had all those and he achieved excellence with attributes of being a human being. And at the end of the day we are supposed to follow Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is example. Today I want to lead you relate one incident and then relate the message of that incident.
And I want to say that this is an incident which ally in the Quran is referred to a great victory in
Medina, we have granted through a very great victory in the six year after hijiri nebia Karim sallahu alayhi wa sallam sees a dream that he is visiting the Kaaba in the Bay to LA for six years since hegira. The Muslims especially the people of Makkah, who grew up with the sanctity of the harem, see Makkah on a daily and a regular basis, they did not see the harem.
So when nobody saw cinema related this they were enthusiastic and so excited. They got ready for the journey. Seeing the enthusiasm Nivea cream sauce, also got ready. 1400 people 70 camels to slaughter in the harem, didn't take much armaments. We are not going to fight we are going to perform O'Mara, although at that time, there was hostility. So now we saw some extra camels and animals, man them to be sacrificed in the harem to make it known that we are not coming here to fight we are coming here to make hombre.
But the people of Makkah, although they had an undertaking that they would not prevent anyone from coming for Oprah or to see the combinely to law, they said we are not going to allow Mohammed and his companions to perform what they view as this, if we allow them to come and perform. The people will say Mohammed and his companions overwhelmed and they defeated them and came to perform because there was a sense of hostility. There was hostility at that time. Now via creme de la jolla wa sallam when he came to know Khalid bin when he moved to South made mentioned with regard to him, took a battalion and he prevented Muslims and he stood in the main the main route coming into Makkah
Nevis Aslam took another route came to a place called Abu Dhabi, which is 13 kilometres away from Makkah.
And when we go from Jetta to Makkah, we have the bridge which have a Quran stayin just very nearby Is it good ABS so close?
Then maybe a cream sauce lamb came there when the via cream sauce alum came them them the next day, when the chairman of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was one wanted to move towards Mecca, and they were driving it towards MCI. It refused to move in their direction to get in any other direction it was prepared to move maybe Sal Salaam said at that time. An amazing statement. Navistar slim realized at that time, that the dream I saw was true.
But it's not going to be fulfilled in this year. It's going to be fulfilled in another year.
But at that time, maybe a cream salsa made a remark and said if the people of maca present to me anything with regard to peace, I will accept it.
Now that I
saw some remaining today via the people of Makkah then started sending invoice because they were not worried. What do you do? It's an impasse. Maybe Jocelyn wants to come come into Makkah. They felt that it would be against the honor and dignity and yet it was known that the Quraysh cannot refuse anyone to come into Makkah. It was an undertaking. It was an aspect of honor on a behalf. Now, what do they do? They send invoice. You know, it is an amazing thing. You and I one thing that I've been telling people that learn to learn live your life, the way that he saw silom led his life. Don't take principles. Don't take management principles don't take leadership principles from any one
button to be a cream sauce. How
negotiated the Treaty of Arabia is being used by universities in the world on the heart of negotiations.
We want to read Stephen Covey and Deepak Chopra. I say there is no greater leader and management principles that you will get from the life of Nivea creme de la vida masala and this particular time today will be from the Hosea tribe. He was the tribe that was alive to the Quraysh
He comes to the VA Kareem salsa Why have you come we have come from when I look at the animals we are brought to slaughter in the harem. Look at the amount of armaments that we have bought. We have what nothing, we have come to my camera. And I was to make hombre. Buddha says that the people of the Quran shown because it will be an affront to them, maybe a cream sauce alum tells him what the purpose is Buddha goes away and tells the people of Makkah. makaras behalfs comes next.
When we cross paths comes, that is awesome. You know, and I'm giving you this for you to learn lessons as I will go. Because when Haas was not an honorable person, then he saw some said, Listen to him, but be careful with regard to his intention.
Because when hufs comes and he goes away, he thereafter in the evening tries to come and capture Muslims as prisoners of war to gain when something nobody saw Sam was alerted and said, We know his intention. He does not have honorable intention. So sometimes when you meet someone who is not honorable, alienate him
alienate him don't have to get into an argument with a
ton Osama, when the giant engage you in argument say Salaam upon you by I don't want to get involved in us with an argument. Then, who lays in hell karma comes the art of negotiations, when you're dealing with a person whom you know he is favorable to your view, then you relate and you make mention with regard to U of u, who was who, who lives in Alabama was the the leader of the bash, bash with the people of Africa, who were in MCI mocha Rama and he was the leader of the Habash, the bash the people of Africa in Makkah, they were people who had a lot of sensitivity for the blessedness for the Bearcat. So when will escape told us to have a go, go and put in front of him
the camels that we have brought for sacrifice.
So when blaze chose us, he went back to the people of Makkah, and said, Oh people of Makkah, how dare you reject nerissa salaam from coming into Makkah. He has come to perform obrah we have an undertaking, we will not prevent anyone from coming over how can you prevent it? How can you prevent him from coming to see the harm? How Nivea cream sauce them dealt with everyone?
Then maybe a cream sauce alum wanted to send an invoice. Send an invoice to be able to see and to tell the people what my what my intention is. So he told Omar, Omar, you become my envoy and go and tell the people of Makkah What is my
What is my purpose of coming? So maybe as Omar vilano said in something like this words in Savannah Hall in something to this effect here rasulillah I will go if you command me and you direct me. But the purpose you are sending for me for is a diplomatic one. And I'm by nature hostile.
I'm not someone who is very diplomatic. I am someone who is hostile to tell me something I'm going to tell them back in return jasola sent me a fun he's got the necessary qualities. He's got the necessary family members in Makkah no one will harm him because he's got family members in Makkah
and nebia cream sauce a lump sum of money have fun as an envoy hula right. They could not have been a better person that was man been a fun to send. Because people loved him because of his generosity of money. Money really means one who was generous. So brother's a person who is generous, he is loved by people maybe a cream sauce, a Sufi or even
a generous person who is close to people and a generous person is close to Allah. a miser is far from people he is far from Allah.
Even if a person is friends with a miser It is never take out his money. After a while people will see just leaving he never takes out anything.
So he was someone loved. llama right. Historians right that was Maria Ronnie before before.
Mother's in Makkah used to put the babies to sleep with this words. Oh my baby Go and sleep. I love you as much as the orange love.
Oh my baby boy and sleep. I love you as much the parish loves us been so smart. When you have any boys. Any
Tell the people we have come from raw. Right at that particular time they tell us man and yeah, the Sahaba telling him how fortunate is postman he can go and perform ombre. And maybe Sam said,
I don't think was man, what performer I was out my presence. And they told me was man come and perform.
And he said, I will never perform.
They become angry with him and they keep him they arrest him. Right. And
the news comes, when the news comes, that
they have arrested of man himself. silom is very angry and disturbed. Firstly, it goes against normal etiquette. You never ever harm an arrested envoy and Ambassador
synovia cream sauce lamb calls the Sahaba takes a pledge from them which is known as beta one, which finds mentioned in the Holy Quran.
Ravi Allahu Allah menial is Yuba. Nakata Sha. Allah is pleased with the Sahaba when they pledge allegiance, Cathy's hands under a tree and nice pleased with them and he will be pleased with them till the Day of Judgment.
When he announces his pleasure, it's impossible that he will be pleased with them mentioned his pleasure and then allow the biller a certain sects mentioned there after he became angry with them. It's against the Quran
and what did they pledge We will fight to death for the sake of Islam.
Others you and I we can make different types of pledges. We can make different commitments, but he is there anyone who can make a commitment I will put my life in line for the sake of my deal. Sahaba did
not put one hand of his on the other and said this is on behalf of us man. This is on behalf of mn when they heard about the pledge. Then they became very very perturbed the people of Makati St. Louis Masood, I'm going to try and cut down who it was who came the remarkable incident what happened. And he saw the love the Sahaba headphones via cream sauce. Let me wait till the people of Makkah. I plead with you to go and deal with him and make peace with him.
I have been your envoy to the Roman Empire and Empire. I have never seen a person people who are more committed
who are more in love with a leader who are more devoted to the leader. And what I saw the companions of Muhammad been opposed to Muhammad, you make peace with him. Libya Kareem sallahu wa sallam at that time was in Rabia at this time they after
they sent so hated me Allah
Subhana Allah so when Mr. Comes in Libya, Kareem saw Salaam says when he saw Sohail the word Suhail comes from the Arabic word Salah, which means is. So when we saw Salaam said nobody saw some said Allah will make things easy. Allah will bring an end to the impasse, Allah will resolve the issue. You see sometimes you and I we don't take lessons from the Sierra, whenever you can be positive, to be an optimist and to be positive. As a first instance. He is the son of Libya, Kareem saw cinema. Nobody saw sunset.
Look and pursue and seek for something to be positive about you will find it.
And of course to be positive and optimistic doesn't mean there is no challenges. The challenges will be there. I give this example. A rose does not say I'm living within thorns, what can I do?
The Rose did not say I'm living within thorns, what can I do? everywhere the stones I can do anything. The Rose blooms amidst the thorns. And even if the thorns are there, the rose will come out in his proper time, it will show its beauty even in the midst of phones. You and I are supposed to bloom even in the midst of challenges. That's a meaning of being an optimist, there will be challenges, they will be difficulties, but we will bloom because that is a tsunami saw slump to be positive and to exude optimism and positive positive nature.
Right this was then he comes and he starts they start negotiations long incident. They come upon certain things that they start agree upon some of the agreements 10 years this year you will not perform over very difficult upon the Sahaba Today we are 12 kilometres away.
Makkah we haven't seen maca for six seven years. And the peace treaty says the Treaty of good Absa you can perform, you have to go away and come back next year, very difficult for the Sahaba to accept this. But this was a treaty which nobody saw Selim is negotiating. And as agreed upon,
then 10 years there will be no one hostility, then whoever wants to join on behalf of the two major, major participants they can join.
Who's I joined the Polish bunny backer, join the Muslims, right thereafter, very difficult. If any Muslim comes from Makkah goes to Medina, the Muslims must return him. But vice versa, it won't happen like that. All of this is if it looks apparently against the Muslims, it looks apparent, I'm using the word apparently very, very deliberately, because Allah has called it a victory, and the best I can use in terms of the words that we have at our disposal. Apparently, it looked like even some of the Sahaba felt it was against the interests of the Muslims. And then maybe a cream sauce alum tells a little villatoro to start writing.
And during the pause of the writing, there were two sentences with the Quraysh objected to
when it said Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Mohammadi rasulillah This is a treaty Bismillahirrahmanirrahim This is a treaty between Muhammad Rasulullah and the Quran. The Quran says buy hold on hold on. If we believed in Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, and we believed in Muhammad Rasulullah, then we would not have had this hostility. The reason of the hostility is this that we don't believe him to be a prophet.
So what did maybe salzmann said, remove it.
Remove these two items, remove Bismillah.
Remove Muhammad Rasulullah. Brothers, I want you to consider I want you to think everyone put your thinking cap on what his name is, Jocelyn removing things that are true things that you and I got no doubt. But he was looking at the broader picture.
He was looking at the broader picture, which you and I know we don't have much to say I've made mentioned that today. We will sit and fight about minor issues. And the broader picture will go away. And we will not realize didn't make it an issue. He had in mind that I want the peace treaty. And I will tell you why he wanted the police treaty. And because he wanted it. That was a broader objective. He was prepared to overlook minor things because of the broader picture. Today you and I we don't have that we will sit and fight over small issues and bigger issues will go by reminds me of a very interesting incident. You know, one day a person was a security guard at a hardware shop.
And at the time of the hardware shop, one laborer every day used to take a wheelbarrow and go out with you know, all the dirt that you accumulated in the hard way. The sawdust, you know, all the dirt, the package, the empty package and the and use cement everything, put it in a wheelbarrow and move out. And the security guard used to look at that wheelbarrow inside, take the box, take the plastic, look at it properly. And every time he looked at it properly. He couldn't find anything. So one day he told the laborer, I don't know what it is. I know you're stealing something.
I know you're stealing something.
But please it is it is finishing me mentally. What are you stealing? Tell me what are you stealing? I will give you amnesty I won't even charge you for it whatever you took you took. So the laborer said I taking the wheelbarrow
every day of taking the wheelbarrow and you sitting and looking at the small dirt every day. Brothers, that's what you and I are doing. We are fighting about issues when people are becoming more dads.
That's the reality. Let me realize the bigger picture. What did he say? He said leave Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.
I put a bigger picture I got the objective. I want to achieve that objective. All these things are minor issues compared to the broader issue. This was our Nivea cream sauce alum looked at this. And when when he Stein at this time Look at the greatness what nobody saw slim wanted to achieve. Why, just before they sign Abu jandal who was a Muslim, he was tied in change. He managed to escape from Makkah, and he is the son of
He is the son of swelled in hammer. We have become a Muslim. So Haley's negotiating on behalf of the Parisian enemy and
comes into davia Oh Muslim save me save me I want to come to you. Maybe a cream sauce themselves to help. Your son is a Muslim. He wants to be with us, allow him to come to us.
Can you imagine what what emotions must have went through the Prophet and his companions and the Sahaba seething with anger
and maybe a cream saucer himself swale allow and allow your son to come to us. I will not allow this treaty says any Muslim from Makkah comes to you You must return him back to us. Navy saw some said that treaty is not signed still. So he said I won't sign the treaty.
Maybe sell some turbojet engine makes everything Go back.
Go back. Allah would make your way out of you. This is how you know what we talk of understanding your purpose, unity of purpose, focus and determination what you want about general go back in this in this instance, what
what stone upon the emotions of nibi saw cinema subpoena when he told him to go back. But he had in mind something. And then Omar came in said, Are we not unhappy? Yes, we are.
Why should we agree upon something like this, which seems so against us and look at what is happening to the jungle. We can even go and perform
and when the Sahaba had to take out there, although they were so devoted and so obedient, when the missiles told him to go and take out there, they will not even prepared to do it. And nobody saw Salaam went into the temple of
Miss Alma seeing the discipline of Mr. Masahiro Sula, what's wrong, you're not looking well today. You are looking anxious. Oh my wife.
Every time I tell my Sahaba something they prepared to do it. Now I'm telling them they are not prepared to learn the wisdom of Selma, Sudan, Allah sometimes listen to your wives not always but sometimes listen to their
own Michelle Maria Latina, sathyaraj, Salah they're not doing out of defiance, they doing it, you know, listen to the wives, you know, sometimes we also so one day a person was trying now to show how great he is.
And he was trying to show how he is the man of the house. And he told the woman and he said, You better listen to me otherwise, the animal instinct in me will come out and I will get very angry. Better Listen to me, the animal instinct will come out of me and the wife said who is afraid of a mouse.
So missile machete Ursula they are disappointed they are not defying you you go and take out your arm they will also come out of the Haram
Subhana Allah now this happens. Now after this, let me give you now why did why and woman was sued. And then on the way Allah revealed this is in
a movie now. We have granted you a great victory. Now let us look at some of the issues. Why it was a great victory. Firstly,
maybe a cream sauce alum away from the hostility started looking at broader issues.
Remember one thing now brothers I'm going to tell you the lesson. Never allow hostility to come in between you and the people whom you are living with in your neighborhood in your country.
Because it will take you away from broader issues. We are hostile to one another therefore we are fighting with one another we can take part in broader issues we can look at broader issues. Now. nebbia cream sauce Lim is away What did he do? Maybe a cream sauce film sends a letter to the to the rulers of the world, the kings of the world come towards Islam. come towards Islam. Subhan Allah, this was our our beloved nebia Crimson Allahu alayhi wa sallam writes towards he likes to help
me Muhammad Rasulullah Illa Huracan azima room
let me so slim gave everyone respect and dignity. When he wrote this letter. One of the highlights a full law in his book on civil rights this some of the Sahaba said your Salah Why are you entitling him as Mr. Rome. Heracles, the great leader of room. Nivea creme sallallahu. wasallam said because his people know him as such.
His people know him as such they call him as a man room. I'm writing the letter to him. I'm calling him with the same title.
We get caught up with unnecessary issues in our community.
Here he addressed in America
In the room, and a long letter. Now the point that I would like to go, I'm just going to sort of make it plain brief. And when hirako received this letter, he asked Is there anyone in this gathering or in this vicinity who knows about him? I would like to ask him certain questions. That time Abu sufian was in Sham, and the time was in Jerusalem. hirakata time was very greatly fated. Allah in the Quran has made mention of kalibata roofie Adnan, Vietnam, a woman by the Philippines, on the threshold of being defeated by the Persian Empire, her Oculus came here to call her Oculus team and change the situation and gave victory to the Roman Empire. He was greatly fated when he
came to Jerusalem, there was great celebrations upon him. And then the he I went to give him the letter. So he called the time abou Sofia, he called Abu sufian. And when he called Abu sufian, he asked him certain questions. And he put up a sofa in front and he told the people of the of the delegation Stand back. And if he says anything wrong, you just tell me you indicate, I will stop him. Abu sufian said, even if I wanted to, because of the fear that my companions will call me out as a liar, I had to speak the truth, because to be called a liar, even in the type of ignorance was a disgrace. Today, we take it as an honor.
I give this guy down, and how I did him down IDC deceived him. According to them, it was an It was an honor to be called a liar, even in the days of ignorance, so we asked him, firstly, what sort of family lineage is the Prophet amongst you the one who wrote this letter? Who afina zona Sabina. He's a very great family lineage.
His ancestry is a distinguished one was any of his forefathers a king? No, none of his forefathers were King. Has anyone made a similar claim before him from his family? No. To the majority of the people who follow Him, are they poor or the rich? They are poor? Do they increase or decrease? They are increasing all the time. Right? Does anyone turn away from the religion after accepting Islam? No, they never accept? Never. Have you ever known him to speak light before he made this claim? No, he never ever spoke a lie before making this claim. Is he given to treachery? No, he's never touches. He is never deceitful. He is always honest. Have you ever fought with him? Yes, we have
fought with him. And this, he said that
we have we have never betrayed us. And I'm also fancy The only thing negative I could say was, we have a treaty at the moment. I'm not sure whether he will abide by the treaty or not. He said there's only thing I could say which was slightly negative. Then he said, Have you ever fought with him? He said, Yes. What is the situation? Sometimes he wins? Sometimes we have one. Because by that time, they were three, three battles. But there are Muslims, one who had the courage had achieved a victory. And of course, in which there was a stalemate, right. How did the fighting goes sometimes even what sort of commands he gave you He tells people not to worship anyone besides Allah? And he
tells us to stay away from immorality and dishonesty. So all of that was said, after he said that, now I want you to listen to this very carefully, right? This is now what her Oculus now deduces from this entire thing,
his deductions and he says, So hon Allah what what an amazing thing
colusa Ultra kanessa he for further kurta una Sabine for gallica Rasul Allah Sophie nessa comida I asked you that what was his lineage and you told me he is amongst a very distinguished village and so a prophet that they are always distinguished in the lineage. Via cream sauce lamb said was 11 as karate allow
that Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah tala chose bonica Nana from among the children of Israel. And then he chose the Quraysh, from Monica Nana, and then he chose Benny Hashem from the Quran. And then he chose me from amongst many Hashem, and he made me the Prophet, the most, the most influential and distinguished lineage. Hashem was the grandfather of Navy sauce, and an amazing appearance. The Roman Empire wrote a letter for his daughter, a proposal to Hashem to get married to. The Jews used to see the new upon him and said that from your lineage, the last prophet of Allah will come. They used to bring the daughters for him to get married. Amazing. This was he was
among the people who used to feed the poor, right so this was an amazing Hashem. Anyway, we will go can make mention, and then I said, What's the Alka Haleakala huddle, huddle, huddle call for the carta? Allah?
tala huddle, photocoupler hula, rollin Yachty, Napoleon Tila tiller. Couple of you said, I asked you whether there was anyone who made such a claim or who was a king before him. You said no. If there was someone who made such a claim previously Oh, who was the king previously, I would have said he is trying to gain what was an ancestral thing. He's trying to gain a lost kingdom that was in his family previously, maybe a cream sauce alum never wanted that. To be a cream sauce. Lamb said, Allah gave me the option of being a slave Prophet, a prophet of humanity or prophet of Kingdom, and I chose to be a prophet of humanity. And Allah, put in front of me, I will turn the mountains around
Makkah into gold and I said, Allah, I don't want it one day keep me hungry. One day, keep me satiated. When I'm hungry. I will make supper when I'm satiating, I will make
the difference between a thing and a profit. A king always sees to his own personal benefit and the benefit of his family. What we will call cronyism, let's look at what's happening in South Africa and other countries of the world. cronyism. all worried about their own interest in the interest of a family. A profit never ever does that. A profit doesn't worry about the benefits to his family. He puts His family first in sacrifice, not in financial gain.
So in better when they said help me move or is there anyone who will fight? Maybe a cream sauce? lamport who did he put first? His son in law? Who did he put first? His uncle?
He didn't say that I'm gonna stay behind. Whenever there were sacrifices required. Maybe a Kareem sallahu alayhi wa sallam was the first among that, that make that type of debt, the difference between a king and a king and the Prophet.
Then afterwards, I asked among the things that I asked was, this I found amazing. Did you ever speak a lie? And you said no. And miraculous made this deduction? If a person
doesn't speak lie in reference to human beings, then where will he speak lies in reference to the Creator.
He doesn't speak lie in front of you with regard to human beings when he speak lies with regard to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Brothers, let me tell you, and tell you do not establish your credentials of truthfulness and trustworthiness. You can forget about inviting people to Islam.
On what basis you're gonna tell people Islam is the truth when you are not truthful.
On what basis you say, Islam is a true religion, but you yourself are a liar.
The person will see if you lie to me with regard to a business matter, and how can I trust you with regard to you telling me that Islam is a true religion? Therefore, we
invited people towards the truth. What did you first do? He first told them Oh, people of Makkah, if I were to tell you there is an army behind this mountain, will you believe in me? They said yes. You never ever spoke ally, after he established his credentials have been a truthful person and trustworthy. Then he said, Hulu La ilaha illAllah c'est la ilaha illa Ma, you would be he first establish his credential. You think by telling people and you are telling people lies in your transactions in your business. And then you telling people Islam is a true religion they can accept in you On what basis?
So when he said that,
that when he didn't speak lies about human beings, where will he speak lies about Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Then he asked,
and what did he ask? And he says that I his followers, those who are
poor or rich for the character.
Yo, I asked you eyes followers who are rich, and you said the first follow was a poor. And so it has always been with truth. The first people to follow through for the poor people.
The first people to follow through for those who are poor. That is why our beloved Maria Kareem said Allahu alayhi wa sallam, we find that our beloved Nivea cream sauce and who are the first people Soumya yasim
And that sumiya, who was
and who made the worst type of oppression against her and yourself and
maybe saw some toyohashi or family of
zenegra up sleeve woman who no one heard of, she became a Muslim O'Meara they allow us to beat her so much and then afterwards he used to say, the Neeraj. I am stopping to beat you, not because I've got any party in you, but because I'm tired.
She was amongst those, I normally tell people today, you see, when a person has certain degree of wealth, there's a certain degree of benefits that come because of your wealth. You've got you know, a very good bank account, because you've got bank account, you walk in the bank, they will show you respect, because you got wealth many times if you travel, you will go in upper class, right. So, therefore, you go in upper class, when you go there, you go fast track, when you go fast track days, a very short few, you go and sit in the lounge. So, when you got wealthier, you have certain advantages exactly the same way. In the afternoon the method will be reversed.
If you have poor then you will have advantage. You got wealth steady the few go and give accountability. You are poor, go straight in the poor. The poor will go into Rich 500 years before the before the rich. Yeah, you have wealth is an advantage. You see the advantage? There you are poor you will be advantages, so maybe a cream Shola while he was selling all this was the alto is he doing too soon for the car?
Anyway, the insulin is a Romanenko to try and cut down the situation. And this was how many a creme de la jolla wa sallam wrote a letter. And then when her Oculus completed his entire interview of Abu sufian. Then he read the letter. And he told the people and one of the things he said was, I knew that the last prophet of Allah is coming either No, it will be from amongst you from the Arabs. And I didn't know it was going to be so soon. If I were to meet him, I will wash his feet, I will wash his feet. And then there was such a turmoil in that particular courtroom.
And that that abusive sufian said we were ushered outside because of the turmoil. And Abu sufian said when I came out then I came to realize and I said that the Navy of Allah had such an influence even upon the Roman Empire. And I came to realize the truthfulness of Islam until I accepted Islam later on. There's a very, very interesting incident
called the he I called the go to doctor, he is a most foremost alum of our scriptures, go and show him this letter. The he goes to the Vatican, the Vatican religious letter, he said, this is a last prophet. We have all been waiting for the Rockaways, a beautiful rope, and he comes amongst his followers and said, this letter has come. He's the last prophet of Almighty Allah, I have decided to bring him on upon him, his people and his followers, they kill him and they make him shahidan. Then he told the here, tell me what happens to the data and comes back to tell me that time after Jerusalem, Hirata came to him, and they came and told him what happened to the data. And then he
tried to come upon the right path or accuracy, called his courtiers and said, I have this letter, perhaps I want to accept Islam. And then they became so angry, they rushed towards the door and said, We will not listen to you. And then he called them back and said, I was only testing you how loyal to me. How loyal are you to me? He understood.
And he man, the way they said Jan economy, man economy, it's not knowing what is the truth. It's accepting what is the truth? Anyway, I can go on making mentioned the point I was making in fatahna Allah.
Allah has granted you a tremendous victory. What is a victory? When there is no hostility? There is no fighting, then you can concentrate on broader issues. When there was no hostility between the Qureshi and Nevis awesome. Let me saw some wrote letters and look at what an impacted him today you and I why we can't progress. See, we have had many great things in our in our in our country. But one of the things that we have not been able to do is to bring about the proper perception of Islam to the people of this land. And perhaps one of the reasons is, we are fighting so much amongst ourselves that we can look at broader issues, because there was no hostility between the people of
MCI and the Quraysh. Maybe a cream sauce alum could concentrate on broader issues, or less than we learn is as long as you fight them
yourself, you will never be able to reach new heights. You will never be able to go great and great get broader horizons. And we are seeing the lessons of Arabia within us in South Africa today. Then afterwards, why did Allah subhanho wa Taala? Why did Allah Allah says enough?
Amina. I have granted you a great victory. him I'm sorry Rahmatullah. Allah says, people regarded the conquest of Makkah as a great victory. But we Sahaba we regarded the three key of Buddha a BIA as a great victory. The reason is, because for the first time,
the people of Makkah, and the police came to see Islam for each through worse, up till that time, hostility didn't allow them to see the beauty of Islam. I see. If you are not going to remove hostility between you and the people you are living with in this country. How do you expect them to see the beauty of Islam when it couldn't be done by nebia Kareem sallahu wa sallam.
If you are going to the people whom you are living with the people of your neighborhood, the people of different colors, the people, the white, the black, the people who are non Muslims, if you don't remove hostility between you and them, where will they see the beauty of Islam, hostility will never allow them to see the beauty of Islam because they are hostile their enemies, remove hostility, remove the enmity, then you will see them perhaps looking at the beauty of Islam up till then they will never see the beauty of Islam.
That is what we learn from that unique advantage. That unique advantage
which the Sahaba turned
that unique advantage with just the apparent disadvantage treat your
brother's death advantage is within our grasp. And what is that? The beauty of our religion, the lack of our religion, once witness undeniable, once people have seen it, they will never be able to forget it. The problem is we have not been able to show it to them. Yes, we have made solid metal alloys keep us upon solid. But bear one thing in mind. Salat is between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala Salat will never be you will never be able to show the beauty of Islam to people because of your salad. Salad you need for your own reformation, your own spirituality, your own spiritual progress, you need it. There is no doubt with regard to it. But no one sees the beauty of Islam by
your Salah. They see the beauty of Islam by your transaction with them with your business dealings with them. you clap with them? That is why nebia cream sauce bonier Islam Allah, the the Pillars of Islam
are five, one of them is solid, the God had Rosa and man. But have you ever seen anyone describe the beauty of a building by saying the pillars of the pillars? And the foundations are very good, how nice this building is? How do you judge a beauty of a building.
You don't judge the beauty of a building by the foundation by the palace. anyone saw this policy, what a nice building, they will see the beauty of the building by the aesthetics, by the paint, by the beautiful architecture outside by the arches. Brothers our
is the outside of our building with which people will judge us and that is the power of o'clock. Salad is between us. And in this particular way, my dear respective brothers people will come to realize the beauty of Islam, not by theory, not by what is applied Islam. Let me conclude with his two examples. When as a Jaffa the ultimate was asked in the court of negus to speak about the beauty of you know Islam, what did he say? Go and look at that whole particular lecture of his the whole talk of his he did not speak about salat, etc. Look at what happened.
When Libya Kareem saw Selim came with the first one he does he and frightened by the strange experience, worried whether he will be able to fulfill this responsibility. He comes to us a viola who can now one la isla de la vida. Allah will never ever disgrace you Why? Why would Allah disgrace you? Because your Salah is very long. In Nicolette, I don't want to show my brothers and me very careful. May Allah Allah forbid that will show insignificance to Salah Allah in the Quran says in Surah muda, Fira masala Kofi Sokka. Allah will ask the people of Johanna Why are you in janam lama colmenar masala
Within perform Salah first thing, so I don't want to undermine but I'm talking about the point that your Salah is good for yourself but he's not good to show people the beauty of Islam.
So what does it he just said well la isla de la sera
meanwhile an hour he will look at your club, look at your conduct, whatever she made mention, you mend the ties of relationship with relatives, you are all the time entertaining the guests, you are helping the downtrodden, you are helping the poor, you are taking up noble causes, whether other people accepting you or not as a prophet is my wife bear witness if you are the last
brothers applied Islam is going to make an influence. That is why Allah tala has referred to who they be as a Fatah. I was surprised when I went recently to UK, I read a report. The report was and I discussed it with some of the people. They said 60% of the non Muslim population of UK have never ever interacted with a Muslim.
And I said, if they haven't interacted, then how are they going to get a proper perception about the beauty of Islam? So the media is throwing that you are like this, you are like that you have to kill all the non Muslims, you are terrorists, you are like that. And you are in your isolated ghettos, then how are you going to change perceptions by being in isolation,
integrate on a daily basis ways integration will take place. The integration is not going to take place amongst the leaders is going to take places amongst your domestics that way you treat them amongst the people whom you are at a time in dealing with them in business matters. That is where you are going to change perceptions. We are not talking of assimilation, assimilation guarantees oblivion dibny Holden Rahmatullah Lee when he went to go in Spain, you know, and he saw how the Muslims were imitating other cultures. He says very soon this particular nation and civilization and the oma is going to go down. assimilation guarantees Oblivion, we're not talking to be assimilated.
That will be the end of our civilization, the end of our teachings, integration means of positive integration, you carry your teachings on your sleeve, you carry your teachings, on your practice, you bring about and applied Islam, that people can see the beauty, they can see the beauty, and that is what happened in wood Abia. And then the Sahaba said, that two years between the sixth and the eighth year after Hijri, so many people accept that Islam that did not accept Islam in the previous 19 years of Islamic history. Why? Because they came in see the beauty of Islam, when they saw the beauty of Islam. They said that this is a such a beautiful way of living. Such a pure way of loving
brothers Allah made today we are in such a great victory because it gave people the opportunity to see the beauty of Islam. What is amazing, we got that advantage with us in South Africa. How said we are not utilizing that. That is the flap of our beloved Libya. caribou Salah Salem will not give another trophy of making among Africa
