I'm relying

00:00:02 --> 00:00:04

on me to be here.

00:00:05 --> 00:00:08

When we learn Himanshu and fusina

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

Molina Maria de la forma de la mejor de la de la when I shadow La ilaha illallah wa de la sharika wanna shadow Ana Mohammed Abu rasuluh salvaterra he was Salam O Allah he he was heavy woman Dara What did he lie within Ahmed Abdullah brothers and sisters in Islam assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:36 --> 00:00:41

Allows Muhammad Allah speaks to us in the Holy Quran surah Toba

00:00:42 --> 00:00:44

allows Han Allah says

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

Naka Raja Kumara Suleiman and fishy Kumasi zone Allah himani tumhari Sonali

00:00:54 --> 00:00:57

for into our local has to be Allah, Allah Allah Allah.

00:00:58 --> 00:01:02

Allah hit our Cal to a horrible Asha Ravi sakalava

00:01:03 --> 00:01:06

this verse of the last verse of surah Toba

00:01:08 --> 00:01:13

and of course, as you know, Soraka was a very special soul right? doesn't begin with Reshma and Raheem.

00:01:14 --> 00:01:17

The other significant

00:01:18 --> 00:01:32

aspect of this last verse of the of surah Toba is that when in the time of say Naboo Casa de la de la land when he appointed a committee under the chairmanship of

00:01:33 --> 00:01:37

Anna's Ebony Malik to collate the Quran.

00:01:39 --> 00:01:43

I use the word specifically collate and not the word collect.

00:01:46 --> 00:01:51

Because the word collate means to bring together what is already existent.

00:01:53 --> 00:02:08

If somebody says make copies of this and collated from page one to 100, all you need to do is to put it together from page one to 100 you have no other job to do, except to put it together. So in the time of look at a city girl to learn, the Quran

00:02:09 --> 00:02:17

was collated it was brought together and it was a committee headed by an Assemblyman click on the last line and they brought the Quran.

00:02:20 --> 00:02:22

This last verse of Surah Tauba.

00:02:26 --> 00:02:32

As a mnemonic narrates himself. He says this last verse of surah, Toba

00:02:33 --> 00:02:40

was grown by a Sahabi by the name of Jose by khuzaima immunotherapy.

00:02:42 --> 00:03:22

Jose may even be therapy at the time of the collation of the Quran was the only Sahabi who I memorize this directly from the NaVi Salam because the the modus operandi and the standard was that a person who brought any of the foreign aid to bring with him to witnesses to attest and verify that that person heard it directly from the Nabi sallallahu alayhi salatu salam. So if you are it's a habit you had memorized a surah or memorized a verse, then

00:03:23 --> 00:03:28

the standard was the requirement was that you bring to people

00:03:29 --> 00:03:37

who was present when you memorize that verse directly from the mouth of the Nabi sallallahu, alayhi salatu salam.

00:03:39 --> 00:03:42

In this particular instance, Hosea couldn't bring witnesses.

00:03:51 --> 00:03:56

So the standard wasn't kept for this particular purpose, but allows you 100, Allah

00:03:57 --> 00:03:58

Subhana Allah

00:04:00 --> 00:04:03

makes provision for everything. Because Allah, Allah says,

00:04:05 --> 00:04:09

that is the verse concerning the protection of the Quran.

00:04:14 --> 00:04:16

What is a virtual Allah Allah says he will put it

00:04:24 --> 00:04:28

that is one verse enoggera wa Quran, laws Honda bring the Quran

00:04:31 --> 00:04:32

content to the verse now. Anyway.

00:04:35 --> 00:04:55

So Jose Marvin tabet when he came to ns, Ebony Malik, he accepted the verse from from Hussein, why did they accept the verse? Because one day when he saw Salaam was walking in the street, and a Jewish men from whom the Prophet had made a loan, he came any poor, he was a normal

00:04:57 --> 00:05:00

and this Jewish man came and he pulled an obese plug from the

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

He pulled him

00:05:01 --> 00:05:11

and he said, Oh, Muhammad. So a lot of you owe me money and you haven't paid me the only money and you haven't paid. I want you to pay me now.

00:05:12 --> 00:05:18

So I must say, you know, you can't speak to the prophet or something like this. You can't speak to the boss.

00:05:19 --> 00:05:20

It's not contract.

00:05:22 --> 00:05:30

So he kept on arguing with nav sauce alone. Of course, Omar was getting more angry and more angry and more angry over the prophets of Salaam Kodama Danson

00:05:31 --> 00:05:35

property to the Jewish man, I paid you.

00:05:36 --> 00:05:37

I paid.

00:05:39 --> 00:06:11

So the Jewish man said, well, in terms of your own Koran, you have to bring two witnesses, for one would bring a witness to verify that you have given me the money. But the Jewish man knew there was no witnesses, prophets and gave me the money there was nobody there was a mapping tab it met at that point was walking past this conversation. So when he heard the Jewish man make this demand of the Navy, so lots of love, he say to the enemies of Solomon, the Jewish man, I was praising I was there when the sun gave me the money.

00:06:14 --> 00:06:15

Prophet Lucas was

00:06:17 --> 00:06:19

probably the Jewish man.

00:06:21 --> 00:06:29

And the Prophet was not surprised. So the Jewish man couldn't do anything. He walked away. So the prophet SAW Selim said, Hussein, nobody will know.

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

You don't witness me paying my debt to the tuition. So why what made you do this? So

00:06:41 --> 00:06:46

we believed everything that jabril alone brought to you.

00:06:47 --> 00:07:23

We believe that when you tell us that you believe both the Quran to you, we never saw jabril we never heard you believe. But for every letter of the Quran, we believe you implicitly but no doubt, this is just a few coins that you owe the Jewish man. So hon Allah should I not believe that you really gave it to him? Subhan Allah. So now visa Salam said about hoceima men shahidullah, who whose aim of the hospital, Marisa Salaam say to the Sahaba after this, when he was a mapping between he based witness his witness is equal to two people enough.

00:07:28 --> 00:07:33

So when he gave this beautiful verse of the Holy Quran, voila sadhana says

00:07:35 --> 00:07:37

Lakota Jia Kumara, Suman unphysical

00:07:38 --> 00:08:05

Verily, a messenger has come to you from mean unfussy come from yourselves. We had a very proud of this verse Arab sywell mean and fishy comb from yourself mean from the Arab nation? The poor he had no but that doesn't refer to the Arabs the first occurrence because he was from the Quran. And the scholars amongst the Sahaba said no, that is only the first of the scholars because they are the people who receive the Quran understand the Quran and interpret the Quran. So for this one,

00:08:07 --> 00:08:11

so Allah, Allah says that this Prophet came from amongst yourself

00:08:12 --> 00:08:29

as a man like you called him Nana, Bashar always say to the people that I am a man like you but I received revelation and you didn't receive revelation. It's a big difference between the hacia Kumara Suleiman and physical Aziz when Allah

00:08:31 --> 00:08:53

allows progresses, describes the personality of the NaVi Salalah Salah allows for handler says that he's pretty concerned about this process is pretty concerned about and we know the Prophet cried a lot lots for us, because I blocked for this opener, as invalid to me is concerned about your lunia and you are Sarah.

00:08:54 --> 00:08:56

He wants you all to go to gym.

00:08:57 --> 00:09:05

That is his concern. He wants Allah to give he Daya to everybody. That is his concern. And this was his concern.

00:09:07 --> 00:09:26

Harrison alikhan Bill mininova always concern and that's why the Navy so solemn, he was concerned about difficulty coming to this room. He didn't want this format to be to have any difficulty in anything. So he made he described his demons as hanafy to somehow

00:09:28 --> 00:09:37

easy deem the easy deal. He made this deal easy for us to handle and we know there's a lot of ease in the deal, such

00:09:38 --> 00:09:53

as in a hurry sunako will move money in our own right. And when it comes to the true believers he was full of hanon full of compassion, full of person, full of forbearance full of patience.

00:09:55 --> 00:09:59

For into our low analysis of an emphasis on Obama, you display Oh

00:10:00 --> 00:10:11

All these qualities of mercy and compassion and forgiveness and forbearance to the believers, for interval no but if they should turn away from us is allowed.

00:10:12 --> 00:10:18

If they should turn away from you meaning away from the Quran and away from the Sun novena de sola.

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

For coal has been

00:10:22 --> 00:10:27

then say to them, has via Allah, Allah is enough for me.

00:10:28 --> 00:10:35

But once you say, Allah is enough haxby Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, there is no Lord except him.

00:10:37 --> 00:10:43

Now that you have answerable and clear they have kurama to know announced, except only to allow

00:10:45 --> 00:10:52

the whole has to be Allahu La Ilaha Illa, who Allah Hito Cal to a horrible Asha and say, I put my trust in him.

00:10:53 --> 00:10:56

I say, the workers Welcome to

00:10:57 --> 00:11:00

Allah, Allah, I put my trust in Allah.

00:11:01 --> 00:11:17

Allah is the Lord of the mighty throne. So this is the final thing. The final thing, the only King. So this verse describes the personality of the Navy salaries concern for us.

00:11:19 --> 00:11:22

Young man came to me in the week, and I'm sure he's in the Java today.

00:11:23 --> 00:11:25

young student UCT.

00:11:27 --> 00:11:29

He came, he wanted to ask me a few questions.

00:11:34 --> 00:11:39

I didn't show my surprise, but I was very surprised that he actually listens to my whole bus.

00:11:40 --> 00:11:45

For the young men of that age, actually to listen, and to be able to make notes.

00:11:46 --> 00:11:54

And to know what I speak about. And to remind me what I spoke about, was really humbling for me. It meant now that I have to answer

00:11:55 --> 00:11:58

one on one to what I say.

00:12:01 --> 00:12:01


00:12:05 --> 00:12:09

I can't remember everything asked me what I mean, I'll try and remember, my memory is not so good anymore.

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

Is it UCT. So, of course,

00:12:13 --> 00:12:21

at any institution of many people, in many different kinds of Muslims, it's always the talk of what is the what is the real Islam.

00:12:22 --> 00:12:24

And it says it UCT there are many groups now

00:12:25 --> 00:12:26

there are

00:12:27 --> 00:12:29

different groups doing different things.

00:12:30 --> 00:12:35

And because the young people want to belong to some group, people join this group or that group.

00:12:38 --> 00:12:45

And they say as far as he says, as far as he's concerned, they all do good, they make thicker, they do this they will grow beards. So the thought

00:12:46 --> 00:12:54

so, he says, Now, you know, what do we do? How do we choose amongst all the groups that that are there?

00:12:56 --> 00:12:57

And then secondly, he said, you know,

00:12:59 --> 00:13:01

the women are taking a very prominent role

00:13:03 --> 00:13:05

on campus and as with everywhere else in the world,

00:13:06 --> 00:13:11

they are very much in leadership positions. They speak their mind.

00:13:13 --> 00:13:15

And he wanted to know what is the

00:13:16 --> 00:13:21

position of Islam concerning the role of women in society basically.

00:13:24 --> 00:13:26

And a few other things you wanted to know.

00:13:29 --> 00:13:34

So, I thought to myself, I have to give this young man very clear,

00:13:36 --> 00:13:37

clear direct,

00:13:38 --> 00:13:41

something which he will be able to

00:13:42 --> 00:13:43


00:13:44 --> 00:13:47

others by and himself or importantly

00:13:49 --> 00:13:53

and I say to him that and I'll come back to this question of standards.

00:13:55 --> 00:13:58

That when you write exam there are certain standards

00:14:01 --> 00:14:13

everything has a particular standard if you are a doctor, there is a certain standard that you must achieve to be able to be let loose on your fellow man. Sorry, the late loose is not a good term to use Dr. Burton.

00:14:18 --> 00:14:24

And so the dean has standards to be able to preach the Dean of allows only certain standards which must conform

00:14:27 --> 00:14:28

and these standards are very important.

00:14:30 --> 00:14:31

And as a team, you know,

00:14:33 --> 00:14:36

our measurement in our standards that we measure anything by

00:14:39 --> 00:14:41

is always the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:14:43 --> 00:14:59

So when you are confronted with 10 groups, all saying that they are correct and all saying that what they are doing is good. And on the surface of it, they all seem as if they're all doing good. What is the golden standard

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

The golden standard is the Quran and Sunnah Muhammad salallahu alayhi salatu salam

00:15:08 --> 00:15:16

they cannot be another standard for a Muslim. Why not? Because in Islam there is no division between

00:15:18 --> 00:15:37

whether you at UCT or in the harm of Makkah, or in Jerusalem, wherever you may be the state or the standards apply uniformly wherever Muslim finds himself because a Muslim is always a Muslim and a Muslim every act that he does, if his intention is to please Allah, it is an Iboga.

00:15:39 --> 00:15:43

And when we speak about the Iboga, we cannot

00:15:45 --> 00:15:50

speak about everybody except to speak about Allah and His messenger Muhammad.

00:15:51 --> 00:16:00

Bara is for a loss of 100 Allah and the main way to make that a bada was given to us by nobody else except Muhammad, Allah. Allah Allah.

00:16:02 --> 00:16:04

If you see all these groups,

00:16:05 --> 00:16:08

you should ask yourself, was this

00:16:10 --> 00:16:14

enjoined upon me as a Muslim in the Quran?

00:16:16 --> 00:16:22

The the NaVi salam wa sallam Come on this? Did he do this?

00:16:24 --> 00:16:28

And if he did not do this, did the Sahaba do this?

00:16:31 --> 00:16:39

If the answer is yes, it is part of the deal. If the answer is no, no matter how beautiful it may look or sound, it is not part of the deal.

00:16:43 --> 00:16:46

So we don't judge the dean, by the way the man looks.

00:16:48 --> 00:16:52

We judge this deem by the Quran and Sunnah Muhammad.

00:16:53 --> 00:16:59

So if I come here with a big yellow scarf on my head, and a beard that bangs on the table,

00:17:04 --> 00:17:12

and my hair is dyed yellow, or red, or pink, or whatever it may be. And I look like a very pious man. And I say a few words in Arabic, although

00:17:14 --> 00:17:16

that doesn't mean that I'm bringing you Islam.

00:17:17 --> 00:17:25

I have to say, this is what Allah says. I have to say, this is what Mohammed Salam says, they know now and accept what you say is true.

00:17:30 --> 00:17:45

So this young man asked me this question, it's all about Senate. So it's very, very important. Because we won't be there forever. Our children will be confronted with many things, many issues, and they have to have someone which thing where they can go with a will, where they can get definitive.

00:17:48 --> 00:17:50

Last time I spoke to you,

00:17:51 --> 00:17:53

I spoke about jihad.

00:17:54 --> 00:17:58

And I say jihad is regarded as the sixth pillar of Islam.

00:17:59 --> 00:18:03

We know the 561. Many scholars say he is grtc.

00:18:05 --> 00:18:13

But this doesn't mean that Islam is a deed of only war, and conquest and killing.

00:18:16 --> 00:18:26

What I meant was non correcting myself for emphasizing only a part of the deen and not saying that there is only part of it.

00:18:27 --> 00:18:39

If we look at the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Orissa Salaam, we find that for 13 years in Makkah, there was no fighting. Everybody fought with him, but he never retaliated.

00:18:41 --> 00:18:44

Everybody will praise Him, but never, he never preceded us.

00:18:45 --> 00:18:55

But the moment he reads Medina and the history of Medina, unfortunately, is written in such a way that it goes from one battle to the next battle.

00:18:56 --> 00:19:06

If you read all the books will start with the hegira then they will go to bother then they will go to war and then we'll go 200 and so forth and so on. And so

00:19:09 --> 00:19:14

all in all, the Navy Salalah does a lot for 27 battles

00:19:15 --> 00:19:16

in his lifetime

00:19:17 --> 00:19:18

27 battles

00:19:20 --> 00:19:26

so I'm gonna ask you to do some calculation for me. So wake up now, even though sleep again after you made the calculation

00:19:27 --> 00:19:36

27 battles if you assume that average battle took say 20 days in how many days did you fight? How much is 27 times?

00:19:37 --> 00:19:38


00:19:40 --> 00:19:42

500 foot I haven't seen this young man.

00:19:43 --> 00:19:44

We will wait for

00:19:46 --> 00:19:50

540 days of how many days

00:19:51 --> 00:19:59

of how many years 10 years. He fought only 540 days out of 10 years of his statement.

00:20:01 --> 00:20:02

Which means the balance

00:20:05 --> 00:20:09

which is how many days? How many years? Eight years?

00:20:11 --> 00:20:13

Okay. You want me to work it on?

00:20:15 --> 00:20:26

My brain doesn't work so fast. All right. So say, say nine, say just just under nine years, isn't it? Just under now what was he doing for nine years? If you only four to 540 days, what did you for nine years.

00:20:27 --> 00:20:46

So for nine years, and maybe Salah was doing what he was building, he was liberating. He was showing his compassion. He was bringing up his children, Subhan Allah. He was building a community. He was preaching. He was instilling love and mercy.

00:20:51 --> 00:21:16

Well, now our son NACA, Illa Rahmatullah Allah, and Allah says, and we have not sent you as a mercy to mankind. So although I emphasized last week, week before last word in the context of what is happening in the Middle East, all the bloodletting in the Middle East, and all the wars, it's going in the Middle East, that there is a duty upon a Muslim and now we have again, in Jerusalem, again, an attack.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:19

It's, it's not so much an attack.

00:21:20 --> 00:21:23

It's basically, if you look at the history,

00:21:25 --> 00:21:27

in the 21st century,

00:21:28 --> 00:21:38

of the confrontation of Muslims with other faiths, you will find that the other faiths are always testing the waters with the Muslims

00:21:39 --> 00:22:00

at what they do, whether it is cartoons being published in The Netherlands, whether it is somebody being stabbed in the streets of London, who is a Muslim, or looks like a Muslim, whether it is closing the Haram and putting detectors, metal detectors, they This is to take the response of the Muslims, what are you going to do?

00:22:01 --> 00:22:07

And when they take the response to the Muslims, and the Muslims do not respond, then they do what they want to do.

00:22:09 --> 00:22:12

So there has to be a very firm response from Muslims all over the world.

00:22:14 --> 00:22:17

And I always say they have they've tried to

00:22:19 --> 00:22:20

and failed.

00:22:22 --> 00:22:29

In attacking the Koran, with all the science, scientific knowledge and knowledge that they have they fail completely.

00:22:31 --> 00:22:42

You don't Yeah, non Muslims of whatever standard or intellectual capacity or ability attacks the Fuhrer. They did this in the 10th century. They don't do it anymore. Why not?

00:22:43 --> 00:22:50

who say Can't they come to the same conclusion that Ferrari is a book which is comes from allows hunters divine?

00:22:52 --> 00:22:55

they themselves have proven that it comes from Allah.

00:22:56 --> 00:23:06

All the all the research have taken them on that route. So where are they now? They are now at the door of the tsunami Mohamed Salah Larsson, la salatu salam.

00:23:10 --> 00:23:16

So, you can see that both internally and externally it is the tsunami tsunami Southern is under attack

00:23:19 --> 00:23:20

in many forms

00:23:23 --> 00:23:25

and the idea is to introduce

00:23:26 --> 00:23:29

amongst the Muslims I should know which is not part of this

00:23:31 --> 00:23:33

it must look like this. So night must smell like this.

00:23:35 --> 00:23:37

It must walk and talk like this.

00:23:39 --> 00:23:41

But they know that it is not.

00:23:44 --> 00:23:48

And we have come to accept that if it smells like this should not walk and talk like this.

00:23:50 --> 00:23:57

And the man who tells it looks like this or not then industry The sooner we don't even question anymore. Nobody looks good.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:00

Tastes good.

00:24:01 --> 00:24:08

Feels good. Must be good. Now, the standard for Muslims always is

00:24:09 --> 00:24:12

the Quran and Sunnah Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.

00:24:14 --> 00:24:15


00:24:17 --> 00:24:20

the minute visa Salam lived in Medina for that short period of time.

00:24:24 --> 00:24:25


00:24:27 --> 00:24:31

if we look at the verses of the Holy Quran, sodoma Jihad

00:24:33 --> 00:24:36

nandakumar Jihad I'm talking about fic. Law,

00:24:38 --> 00:24:39


00:24:40 --> 00:24:51

Criminal Law, penalties for criminal law, marriage law, Divorce Law, inheritance law, if we should

00:24:52 --> 00:24:52

add up

00:24:54 --> 00:24:55

all the verses of the Quran

00:24:57 --> 00:24:59

of the 6000 62,300 and

00:25:00 --> 00:25:04

60 verses of the Holy Quran only 7% deals with law.

00:25:06 --> 00:25:18

Only 7% deals with questions of law, finance, marriage and divorce, inheritance. Salah, zakka, Hajj omniscience.

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

So what what what does Allah talk about in the 93% of the

00:25:27 --> 00:25:35

93% in the Quran is about what? Although we've reversed it, we said, we put 93% of our time in learning

00:25:37 --> 00:25:42

and 7% in trying to understand what a lot of families tend to tell us in the rest of the book.

00:25:43 --> 00:25:47

And so a lot of times you say to us, Carnival,

00:25:48 --> 00:25:56

I said, Can Hulu altura that his character was the Quran, Allah, Allah subhanaw taala talks about

00:25:58 --> 00:25:59


00:26:01 --> 00:26:09

character as a leader, as a follower, as a husband, as a wife. These are all the roles Mohammed played.

00:26:11 --> 00:26:15

And every one of these roads has its particular character.

00:26:16 --> 00:26:23

And Muslims have to find what that is when they look at the Torah. So if we look at the number of Hadees,

00:26:24 --> 00:26:31

there are hundreds of 1000s of Hadees Hadees, the column of a height of Heidi, who had the phone

00:26:33 --> 00:26:35

have generally concluded

00:26:36 --> 00:26:41

they were is about 60,000 authentic hadith agreed upon

00:26:42 --> 00:26:44

60,000 60,000

00:26:46 --> 00:26:55

of these, again, those who had either speak about jihad, and speak about a caravan food, and

00:26:56 --> 00:26:58

only again about 7%.

00:27:01 --> 00:27:06

The other 93% deals with the interaction of men with men.

00:27:07 --> 00:27:10

How the NaVi salatu salam

00:27:11 --> 00:27:19

dealt with his fellow men. What was his mannerism of approaching others? And I want to give you an example.

00:27:21 --> 00:27:26

And you've heard the name a lot Jabir Jabari Abdullah rhodiola

00:27:29 --> 00:27:41

the great hub of the new Salah, they were coming from very far from a vessel called Latin America. This place is about 600 kilometers away from Medina.

00:27:42 --> 00:27:46

And when the battle was finished nerissa Solomon the army came back to Medina

00:27:47 --> 00:27:48

let me say Salaam

00:27:50 --> 00:27:54

was the commander of the army, but he was writing at the back of the army.

00:27:57 --> 00:27:58

Let me say salam was

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

the chosen of our last founder commander of an army he was way it was in the back. What was he doing at the back?

00:28:07 --> 00:28:13

When he leaves the army to battle, he was in the front. When he leave the army away from the battle. He was in the back

00:28:15 --> 00:28:21

to see whether all the soldiers are together no Stranglers nobody got a puncture.

00:28:24 --> 00:28:32

Nobody's camels limping. Nobody fell off his horse Subhanallah always caring for those that is under his command.

00:28:34 --> 00:28:45

So as they will gain towards Medina. navies are similar love notice it was one man who's lagging behind the rest of the army. I was a fella went to him. And so it was Java.

00:28:49 --> 00:29:00

These are sensitive Java to Java. What's wrong? They are a pseudo learn this lady that I'm writing is real. So she can she can go faster you

00:29:02 --> 00:29:03


00:29:05 --> 00:29:07

So now that we have Salaam is trying to

00:29:09 --> 00:29:21

make conversation with him obviously he is now very shy and he's now in a situation where he you know the Army's going and he's you know, His heart is beating fast because everybody's wife and children waiting for them in Medina and now he's going to be late.

00:29:22 --> 00:29:25

You know, it is when you come from Makkah, you want to be on the first plane.

00:29:27 --> 00:29:38

On the first plane, you prepare to give your life you know, to be on that flight, you know from Jeddah to to Johannesburg to Cape Town because you know your your wife is waiting for you on the other side. Neutral no waiting for you.

00:29:40 --> 00:29:44

So there's your job if somebody says something charming come here. Are you married?

00:29:45 --> 00:29:47

This is Ursula. I married.

00:29:48 --> 00:29:52

I mean, this mother says did you marry a young woman or do you

00:29:54 --> 00:29:55

marry a widow

00:29:57 --> 00:29:58

Vasu What do you

00:29:59 --> 00:29:59


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

jasola No, she wasn't a young lady. She was married before. And childhood is young.

00:30:07 --> 00:30:14

But why Jamie? I mean, you're a young man. The late man you're young man. Why do you want to marry younger

00:30:15 --> 00:30:20

so there are a lot my father died in the Battle of Ohio. That's another beautiful story in which

00:30:22 --> 00:30:27

he says My father died in the Battle of our food and he left nine daughters

00:30:29 --> 00:30:29

and I'm the only son

00:30:31 --> 00:30:41

no young so I decided my needs come after the needs I need somebody to look up to my sister's Nomad an older woman

00:30:42 --> 00:30:45

Mashallah look out look and you know,

00:30:46 --> 00:30:48

those villages come from themselves

00:30:50 --> 00:30:55

the Navy is far too goes he knew that he said that good example. That was the example which he said

00:30:57 --> 00:30:59

and so as we were getting nearer to

00:31:01 --> 00:31:09

to Medina, you know, NaVi Salamat very good hi could some people are very well nice. He looked at Java Java nine sisters, Mashallah.

00:31:10 --> 00:31:15

And, you know, you look as if, you know, he was quite poor, nobody could see that he was a poor man was management.

00:31:17 --> 00:31:23

So, now, let me say Salaam allyssa salam, you know, we would say far too, you know, we were in a

00:31:24 --> 00:31:30

good place for as with any system to life, you know, and people feel embarrassed.

00:31:31 --> 00:31:37

Let me even embarrass you. This was a hobby alone with him in the desert. He said Java.

00:31:38 --> 00:31:39

I want to buy this camel from human.

00:31:41 --> 00:31:42

To me, show me your camel.

00:31:44 --> 00:31:47

He says use Scala. So camel

00:31:49 --> 00:31:50

systems I give you one DRAM for the

00:31:52 --> 00:32:04

services. Even this okemo I can sell for 300 dieren that's the price. I know she's old. But you know that's the that's the market value of my camera three and the DRAM

00:32:06 --> 00:32:31

but what was the Navy doing? Let me say Saddam was lighting his burden at his sister's wedding when Medina got a wife older wife anyway. Medina shame Catherine loving to look forward to services Academy to Durham's city Roscoe. Okay, so taken off, so that took us pay me if you're, if you think you fell in love with my camel, you know, just just take it It's okay, good. No price. No.

00:32:33 --> 00:32:35

Maybe not. So selasa. Alicia

00:32:36 --> 00:32:37

said, you know,

00:32:38 --> 00:32:51

what I'm gonna do in Sharla. When we get to the gates of Medina, I'm going to tell the army to stay outside the gates of Medina. Shit, why? See, because I want your wife to be aware that you've arrived when you arrive.

00:32:52 --> 00:33:01

You know what I mean? I want your wife to get a message that you've arrived. When you arrive, you must give her a surprise.

00:33:02 --> 00:33:07

So this assumes that you must allow her to put the cushions right.

00:33:09 --> 00:33:10

So cushions.

00:33:11 --> 00:33:15

He says he has cushions but we don't have cushions you know.

00:33:17 --> 00:33:26

Even in current interpret, he couldn't interpret or the Navy Salama saying to him. He was confused. You know? What sort of

00:33:28 --> 00:33:33

questions because no, I want your wife to prepare herself for you.

00:33:34 --> 00:34:10

If you know that you're coming, she will make herself pretty for you. She may be put on a new desk for you. He didn't say that. She maybe will make some nice food for him. Because the Prophet knew that this poor man young men were an older woman with nine sisters. He needs a bit of upliftment. So not easy at all, obviously no happiness also, to stay until I send a message to your wife to say that you're waiting outside the gates of Medina and you will be arriving soon in shock. And that's exactly what the Navy says. 74 This one's a hobby. Imagine for one Sahabi this was the character of Hamlet also

00:34:12 --> 00:34:17

coming from a battle coming from a wall not coming from

00:34:19 --> 00:34:26

Russia so the burn who's coming from war in this in this in this

00:34:27 --> 00:34:33

battle, and in this return from Latin America, the Sahaba at the red

00:34:35 --> 00:34:56

cloth around the feet because the feet was bleeding from the desert sand the heat of the desert side because many of them didn't have animals to to ride or not to walk. So panel. So it was a strenuous example three kilometres. Let me add the time energy to do this to this one single man. And that's our loss Allah says

00:34:57 --> 00:34:59

ma sanata illa Rahmatullah.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:02

That you were sent over Hamas as well as mercy to you.

00:35:03 --> 00:35:22

So this is what the rates of difference and when I became to Medina and at the gates of Medina and the visa subsidy in Java, don't worry, everything will be fine. Don't worry, you know, slap on the back, you know it's fine. And the main integrity was intact. You all know what it is intact. We didn't give him a Slava

00:35:23 --> 00:35:25

winning hope I didn't let me say

00:35:26 --> 00:35:32

heavy sasaram say to bira techlace 600 dyrham and go and give it to

00:35:33 --> 00:35:33


00:35:35 --> 00:35:38

So hanawa and tell Java you can use camel.

00:35:40 --> 00:35:40


00:35:42 --> 00:36:19

This was a prophet Mohammed. So lots of so 97 to 93% of Hadi and more than 90% of the Koran deals with this personality of this great man that allows for hi Natalia sent to us. And only this man, Mohammed Salah La Jolla Salaam can be an example for all of us in everything that we need in this life and in every stage of our life. There is no other men that are like created that can be this example for every single human being.

00:36:22 --> 00:36:35

We could compare to NaVi Lisa for example, Elisa to Salaam, maybe Elisa Elisa to Salam was of the old as the newest one of the five grade prophets that are live in at St. He was born without

00:36:36 --> 00:36:37

without a father.

00:36:42 --> 00:36:44

He can be an example for the young,

00:36:45 --> 00:36:46

virtuous bachelor.

00:36:48 --> 00:36:56

That's all been easy can be example only for a young, virtuous bachelor because he died today just to see and he was never married.

00:36:57 --> 00:37:22

So a common example for the married man, for the old man for the man who has one wife for the man who has more than one wife. For the man who is a leader for the man who's an army general for the man who's an economist for the miners to build a state. He can't do that. Because you get a visa as an example for that. Let me show a man Alyssa Salam was a very rich man, a great leader

00:37:24 --> 00:37:25

a just ruler

00:37:28 --> 00:37:30

but it was never a poor man.

00:37:31 --> 00:37:32

It was always a rich man

00:37:33 --> 00:37:34

the name is a Salaam was both poor and

00:37:37 --> 00:37:49

so Panama became an example for us for the rest for now he says Allah was both a follower in Madden MCI was not a really was a fun he was part of the crash. And in Medina became he came to be a leader.

00:37:51 --> 00:37:51


00:37:53 --> 00:37:54

brought up his children,

00:37:55 --> 00:37:56

and he buried his children

00:37:58 --> 00:38:03

in that for is also an example of our man reacting every kind of situation.

00:38:05 --> 00:38:10

So he is the only person that's why when that man Mr. Hart wrote the book

00:38:12 --> 00:38:15

about the 100 something something something

00:38:16 --> 00:38:19

the 100 most influential men in history.

00:38:22 --> 00:38:24

He was forced to come to the conclusion Mohammed Salam

00:38:27 --> 00:38:40

was not the most important only the most influential man in history, also the most successful men in history. They were totally what the Chief Rabbi of England once he wrote an article in the in the spectator,

00:38:41 --> 00:38:57

which is an extremely expensive magazine. I would like to subscribe but it's still expensive magazine and this Chief Rabbi wrote in he said that even he is a rabbi has to admit that Mohammed Salah was the most successful because he says Moses, Moses says my Prophet Moses never reached the promised land.

00:38:58 --> 00:39:04

He said that he reached the promised land, but he never reached the promised land. He died before he reached the promised land.

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


00:39:08 --> 00:39:11

he accomplished everything in life. stablish the state

00:39:13 --> 00:39:14

converted the whole of Arabia

00:39:16 --> 00:39:16


00:39:18 --> 00:39:22

could live with one wife, as happily as he could live with 13 wives.

00:39:23 --> 00:39:26

That alone is a challenge. I think for every single one of us.

00:39:28 --> 00:39:32

That were allowed to handle Darla when he speaks about the NaVi Sol la sala.

00:39:34 --> 00:39:35

He says while I'm an fi

00:39:36 --> 00:39:37


00:39:38 --> 00:39:40

he says valey

00:39:41 --> 00:39:46

amongst you is the messenger of Allah, even now is amongst us.

00:39:48 --> 00:39:50

He soon as a living sooner,

00:39:51 --> 00:39:57

we can refer to it at any moment allows one has given us today

00:39:58 --> 00:39:59

instruments where we

00:40:00 --> 00:40:05

We can get in touch with the CIO now almost immediately, whatever it is, via this

00:40:08 --> 00:40:10

and I want to end up by

00:40:12 --> 00:40:20

saying probably the most interesting little article that I've read in the last few years of my life was an article circulated

00:40:22 --> 00:40:26

on the school's WhatsApp and I don't like what's happens

00:40:27 --> 00:40:30

How did you close that down because 90% of the stuff

00:40:33 --> 00:40:36

but if there's one thing just came through, I would have been very happy

00:40:38 --> 00:40:39

and it's a question

00:40:40 --> 00:40:45

that somebody posed a lady posed to another lady Her name is

00:40:46 --> 00:40:48

is Amina Mujahid.

00:40:50 --> 00:40:51

Yes mean Madrid?

00:40:52 --> 00:41:01

Mashallah, so most of you have seen this and read this, but I want I want to repeat it from our mouth so I can feel the niceness which I felt when I read this little clip.

00:41:03 --> 00:41:07

And the question was that I think it was on the 18th of

00:41:08 --> 00:41:10

just get to

00:41:15 --> 00:41:33

even see how many how many pages I could buy didn't talk about, but this I have to talk about? Yes. When we joined on the 18th of March 2005. I was in Cape Town. I mean, our dude live the Salah of Juma in Clermont Madrid mosque. That was quite a historic occasion, I think. Okay.

00:41:35 --> 00:41:41

So this young lady poses the question to this lady has been, which is I think she's coming to Cape Town

00:41:42 --> 00:41:44

tomorrow, or shall

00:41:46 --> 00:42:02

she says to Jasmine, no, died. That on that day, it was the first Juma that was led by a lady probably in Africa to other parts of the world. I'm saying probably in Africa.

00:42:03 --> 00:42:07

And she says this was a huge step. And I'm quoting a direct quote and

00:42:09 --> 00:42:19

he says, The women must lots of Muslim women saw that as a huge step in the liberation of Muslim women in the Muslim community.

00:42:22 --> 00:42:30

The question to ask is what is really liberating for Muslim women to see one of the number leave the Jew masala

00:42:32 --> 00:42:38

was it that nearly a step forward for the Muslim women to see one of the number lead Vidya masala

00:42:39 --> 00:42:40

and she answers the question.

00:42:41 --> 00:42:42

May Allah bless

00:42:43 --> 00:42:44

evolution long life?

00:42:48 --> 00:42:52

First, I want to code the verse of the Holy Quran Allah. Allah says what the law he lies is actually Rasool

00:42:53 --> 00:43:04

Allah. Allah Allah. Allah Subhana. Allah says, what the lie lies the to an honor and glory belongs to who? to Allah.

00:43:06 --> 00:43:14

Allah, Allah, Allah, Isaiah to whatever Sunni, many, Allah says, To honor and greatness

00:43:16 --> 00:43:25

and liberation, whatever you want to call it, belongs to Allah, and His Messenger and the true believers. When our kingdom on earth,

00:43:26 --> 00:43:28

by the monarchy, they don't notice.

00:43:29 --> 00:44:07

They don't realize and know that the standard for other is Allah Himself and His Messenger in the true believers. Again, I come back to the word of standards and how do we measure ourselves as Muslims against what that's what I started the hood bowl, and I say, we measure ourselves by rule by the revelation which are lighting what allows us it's the first standard and amongst humanity, Mohammed Salim says, The living standard for us. And we come back to that point. And this lady says,

00:44:09 --> 00:44:11

she repeat, she says, honor,

00:44:12 --> 00:44:18

honor, and position and dignity comes from Allah.

00:44:19 --> 00:44:38

Not what men do and what men are. She says, the fact that you're a man, you don't set the standard for women. No. In Islam men doesn't seem to stand up for women. allows for how can I set the standard for everybody? And she says, feminism

00:44:41 --> 00:44:42

in the West,

00:44:43 --> 00:44:47

wing women in the West one total absolute equality,

00:44:49 --> 00:44:59

absolute equality, quality. When a man catches it, they want to cut the when the man changes it they want to shave their head. When a man wear pants, they must wear a pair. When the man does whatever then

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

Because there is a standard thing set for themselves. Why do they say the standard? Because they have taken God out of their lives as a standard for themselves in their own honor.

00:45:11 --> 00:45:31

So the next best thing that they do the feminists in the West, the women in the West is they say, well, man can do this and we can do it. Man can drive a tractor. I can drive a man can drive a bus, I can drive a bus. If a man can do this, I lose women who say that any man can do I can do. So hi, Lola. So

00:45:32 --> 00:45:48

this is not what a Muslim woman says. A human Muslim woman says that my standards are set by You created me the honor council You created me via his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salatu salam.

00:45:50 --> 00:45:57

And he says on that day when they allow this woman to lead the Salah, they made the same mistake as women in the West.

00:45:58 --> 00:46:00

They made the standard

00:46:01 --> 00:46:13

men see what if a man can can lead the Juma Salah Why can't a woman lead the Jew masala but they don't understand that in Islam, the mom is not better than the moon

00:46:14 --> 00:46:18

doesn't mean that you're a mom, you're not great at Yana. You're a man and you know,

00:46:20 --> 00:46:25

you have maybe lots of friends of Allah standing behind you that you don't know and you may not be one of them.

00:46:28 --> 00:46:44

So she says on that day, they made the biggest they fell into the trap that Western women fell into, and that is to compare themselves. And she says if it was that a woman should strive to lead others in Salah

00:46:46 --> 00:46:52

women like Khadija who was given on the dounia would have asked and that is a salon for that honor.

00:46:54 --> 00:47:17

But she realized to gain gender you don't need that on Allah gives it to you directly. So hi, I'm Allison jabril. To the ladies a salon to tell him give my salon to your wife, Sybil came and said, Allah sends me to you to tell it to give Salaam to Abuja, and she never let the Jew masala no one says Allah, no any other Salah for that matter.

00:47:19 --> 00:47:27

So we should understand both as men and men. And women should also understand that the honor which Allah had given to them, he had not given to me.

00:47:28 --> 00:47:31

And the greatest honor that all are given to them was to become mothers

00:47:33 --> 00:47:39

to become the vessels that gave birth or Gambia or even some including Mohammed thalassa.

00:47:41 --> 00:47:47

That is only given to him, and are allowed to place the agenda at their feet.

00:47:48 --> 00:47:50

And then at least our solemn said

00:47:54 --> 00:47:57

kindness to be kind

00:47:58 --> 00:48:09

savasana Who should we be kind to who deserves our kindness? And then we said your mom, your mother? And it's a horrible thing to look man, of course was this question.

00:48:10 --> 00:48:15

Again, they wanted to know so who's next? He said your mother. And again the main thing

00:48:16 --> 00:48:18

and we'll see tomorrow.

00:48:20 --> 00:48:23

And then fourthly, the fourth time you said and your father.

00:48:24 --> 00:48:37

So final. So Islam then, in Islam, if a woman a Muslim woman should compare yourself and take a standard from the Quran and Sunnah.

00:48:38 --> 00:48:52

So this young man I didn't have the opportunity to say all this is done but if he's here today, this is also an answer to some of the questions you asked me about everything. And I think this is a very important lesson for women.

00:48:53 --> 00:49:22

Do not judge yourself by your husband. Or judge yourself by yourself. And do not let some judge in Do not let daughters judge himself by their brothers know each and every one allows for this honor. And every person in this drama in this message unlike honored you uniquely from everybody else, you have been favored. If you look at your life, you will find that Allah has given you a favor which is not given to anybody else.

00:49:24 --> 00:49:26

And the first five is you look in the mirror, maybe no.

00:49:29 --> 00:49:34

But if you look in the mirror matches up to beautiful is your notice to hear as you see yourself handle

00:49:36 --> 00:49:40

that you are from Bonnie Adam. From banana what

00:49:42 --> 00:49:50

allows Elisa Sharon says and we have honored this if you look in the mirror what you see, see the son of other what is Allah say about

00:49:51 --> 00:49:52


00:49:54 --> 00:49:59

can rubner honored the sons of Adam alayhis salaam

00:50:00 --> 00:50:07

So May Allah, Allah giving Charla that we, that we really get to grips with this faith of ours, that we really

00:50:09 --> 00:50:10

we see for what it is.

00:50:11 --> 00:50:35

And we see the navamsa Psalm 40 was the 93% of character that he brought to us. And the 93% of the Quran was brought in order to strengthen this character other than to be dealt with this young man. Look at jabby look at it, just if you go home and just tell this one story about that girl with this, this poor man with an old female shouldn't stay as female to say, oh, camel.

00:50:36 --> 00:50:41

And now that he lifted him up in lovely spirits, and never touched on it.

00:50:42 --> 00:50:54

I was just asked to speak about but something today there was a skirmish just last week, I was in there but I believe the the the Pokhara the nearly people who come here to the masjid.

00:50:55 --> 00:50:58

There, there the fact and this is

00:50:59 --> 00:51:02

this is normal people fight, especially people in that condition fight.

00:51:04 --> 00:51:07

And it's not their fault that different. It's our fault.

00:51:09 --> 00:51:13

My fault fact is my fault. I take responsibility for that fight.

00:51:14 --> 00:51:21

And it doesn't mean now that we're going to say to these people, these were many people remember time is going to come

00:51:23 --> 00:51:30

with a certain set a time will come when people will walk with the money in their hands.

00:51:31 --> 00:51:39

Hole in boxes in the street and they will call out who is the who What? charity? Who is there was

00:51:41 --> 00:51:50

nobody would want to check it. Everybody will have enough. So I always say when when when I when a poor man knocks on your door, you should smile.

00:51:51 --> 00:51:56

Because the day's gonna come when nobody's coming knocking? And even if you want to give it to them, they'll say no, I thought

00:51:59 --> 00:52:14

so also organized poor, poor, needy people and poor people here as a reflection as a murder for us, that we thank Allah that we are not in that position, that we are the giver and not receiver.

00:52:15 --> 00:52:17

So the chairman Furman is one I said, you know,

00:52:18 --> 00:52:26

it's our fault because as a Jamaat baby as a committee, maybe as a group, maybe as myself, we should these people always be with us.

00:52:28 --> 00:52:29

You can't take them.

00:52:30 --> 00:52:38

Like I know, my dad one day made a lecture and he said, You know you can't remove a man from the mercy of our last panel.

00:52:40 --> 00:53:10

No matter where you take him he will always be under the mercy of Allah even if you put him on Mars, or Jupiter. Allah's mercy will always be there because owners Mercy is everything. So I say to you today you can't remove these people from the mercy of Allah. And Allah sin the mercy through us. And I know some of us are very upset sometimes with these people maybe the way they dress maybe the way they are maybe. But you know, so Pamela, what would we have said in the title of the Navy sambuddhassa Hava that was so poor.

00:53:11 --> 00:53:25

So poor there was there was a there was so poor that the husband when he came to the masjid, he went babies wifey? No, because both of the two of them only had one there is to it.

00:53:27 --> 00:53:38

He was so poor, that husband wife has only got one, this eternal wizard, and she has to hide. If she wears it, he has tried so hard.

00:53:39 --> 00:53:56

So inshallah I just putting this in front of you, or maybe some of you have ideas about how we can resolve these issues, or how we can better serve them in a better way so that they don't fight. And we show a good example. I mean, look at Java and Navy. So solid, you know, that is the kind of, kind of I think the kind of

00:53:58 --> 00:54:02

patience and love and sharing that we should have

00:54:03 --> 00:54:03
