speaks to us in the Holy Quran Allah, Allah says, Allah renatus Quran Allah hakea manhwa Kuroda new Allah Genova him with a Coronavirus altissima to
probe banana calacatta heard about the lens of ohana Kakinada Bella
Allah subhanaw taala
speaks in the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah says it talks about those who remember alswamitra laying down standing in every single position.
And the meaning of this verse is that Victrola for remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala doesn't have a place nor a time.
It is all the time standing, lying down in every single position.
And so we need to take cognizance of this and we need to understand that this is what our Deen is about, that this Deen of Islam
is a holistic faith. It is a complete Deen it cannot be divided into parts.
Everything in Islam falls and joins together.
Now last week we spoke about the goal of Surah Al e Imran.
And we said that Serato nakara is the constitution for the program of life. We say to Rebecca deals with Islam on our
reformation of the earth, it deals with the construction, Mr. Construction of the world, and finally deals with hidayah that the prophets of Salaam was sent to guide people to allow us
to give people the message of La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah wa salam, and that beseech that program, which allows honor gave to us and so to Bukhara needs to be constant, we need to affirm and be firm on that pledge that we gave to our laws. pantalla so firmness and constancy and stability and continuance is very important for the
for the establishment of the Dean of allows pinata. But as you know, and I know that
always tries to divert us from the objective of establishing the truth of allowes pinata, we get sidetracked by many issues, issues of tradition, issues of culture, issues of money, issues of so many things that just takes us away from being firm.
Honestly establishing the low of a low swaddle on the dunya. Now, today, inshallah we're going to begin and start with what how do we restore our firmness and constancy on the program which allows father given to us first is Toba. Alex Wagner says in Serato in Surah Al e Imran verse nine, Rob Bana
LA to say hello bada bada atena
Ali Imran teaches us the first principle of constancy
The first principle of firmness and what is that, that is we must keep our connection with allows Connaughton
and what is the base connection we can have with a loss formula is to to return to Allah dhaba to boo. adobo means to constantly return back to allowes pinata. So we say to our last one, Oh Allah do not deviate our hearts do not deviate, very easy to deviate. The majority of the people deviate, we deviate if there is a tradition and makes us deviate.
And so there are many things which deviate from the path. Young people have lots of challenges that take them away from the path while allows progress
ask Allah if had a terrible habit I'm a lead on karma and give to us from Viola a mercy and what what mercy a mercy to keep us constant on the Quran and Sunnah Mohamed Salah la Salah robina in Dhaka genuine knotty Leo medullary Buffy, Allah says, we say, Oh Lord,
the day when men will be gathered
a day in which there is no doubt.
Unfortunately, not today, unfortunately not today.
Maybe we will say today though the world will continue by still some time left before the sunset. So don't be too optimistic, you know, things may just happen. We know of course, the navicent salam said that the world will come to an end on the Friday cuyama will be on a Friday. So when when Maverick comes on a Friday, you can say
at least another six days, you know, duel is not going to come to an end. In six days. I can still make Toba but it's going to happen. That is the Hadith of the NaVi sauce Allah. So Allah says, we say Oh Allah, you are the gatherer of all the souls on the final on the final Dyess of justice and questioning in Nevada, California.
And allows one of the law says that he Allah doesn't break his promise, if he makes a promise, he doesn't break his promise. So the first way that we that we become firm and content is to continuously repeat the words as the filler, or to be like to be conscious of our sense. You don't jump down here to say as long
as you like to accurate in words, you can think it. You can feel it, you can do it. And the best way to make Toba is to do it, and was not to revert back to that which we constantly do. So that is number one. First is Toba and
what are those factors? What are those things?
Which will really bring us really back to the path of our last panel.
The first we learn from the wife of a moron
now I'm Ron
was the father of Nami Moosa
nobody has how rougned
and say that tuna Maryam
but this is not the say that tuna Maria, who was the mother of Nabil Rizal is of Salaam. Obviously, if they say that your Maria was the sister of moose and our rune that is long before nothing resolved is too slow. So there are two mediums in the Quran. The Maryam was the mother of ERISA, which happened 600 years before the death coming of Mohammed salah and Maryam was the sister of
Moosa and rune, and the father was a moron. So you're allowed to under gives an example of constancy and firmness in the form of a woman.
Not in the form of men allows longer says,
as far as
there will be some Gremlins raised so you have to just forgive us for the Gremlins. You know, it's the first time we're having this
kind of presentation on the screen. So you just have to.
So what did I say? I said, there are five factors which keep us constant, the first is
to seek refuge in Allah subhanaw taala. The first is to seek refuge is allowed Allah says Allah vena coonara robina in nana
nana nana joaquina, Allah Bandar, we say to Allah, Allah, those who say Oh our Lord, we believe in the forgive us. Forgive us our sins and save us from the fire of Johanna. And allow sangala says it levena taboo main body, the liquor was left over in the lava forum, Rahim Allah, Allah says, and be quick to ask Allah for forgiveness.
And to ask Allah subhanaw taala.
That 133 translation
is not the 133 Arabic it's another Gremlin. In Allah Vina, Illa Latina a taboo, except those who make Toba after that and wa sallahu and do good for inner love of Orion will allow sparkle is most forgiving, Most Merciful. So firstly, to be able to be firm and constant on the Quran and Sunnah not to be diverted because many things divert you and especially today there are so many things today.
They divert us from the Quran and Sunnah. People have introduced so many things into this Deen of Allah subhanaw taala that people are confused
and the people that are confused
who doesn't have the insight into the Quran and Sunnah Muhammad's Islam
that this Deen
is not like Christianity or Judaism. This Deen is absolutely unique.
This Deen is not sub ordinate, as I say to any other kind of
ways of doing things. No. Islam is unique in every single sense. In the way praise in the direction plays in the clothes, it weighs in the food it eats, in the land, which it uses,
in the celebrations that it has part of it's
it's part of our religion, our celebrations that we have.
So the five factors then Firstly, to seek refuge in Allah. Secondly,
and I bada we have the example of a bada and Allah so I'm going to use this example of now we come here to say that to know Maria,
when she said when she was pregnant,
wouldn't it be nice Alisha to Salam.
She said that I'll be in another two laka Murphy, botani mojarra? No, this was the mother of signal to know Maria. Remember, he asked for a son. And Allah gave him a daughter. And she said, the mother of said had the number and said, Oh my Lord,
I dedicate this child to you.
How many mothers do this?
There should be every mother was pregnant, you do this, to say to our last song that I dedicate this child to you?
Because what else do you want to do to Who do you want to dedicate the child? So this is an example of Sadat.
firmness, and believing and dedicating to allow Swan water. And as I said, the story which I told before, and it's a nice story. So I repeated about, say, noticing
the Turkish scholar, who,
at a very young age,
memorize the Quran, very brilliant student in his class, and his teacher was very impressed with him.
And his teacher was so impressed with him that his teacher wanted to meet his parents and his teacher went to the village in Turkey, and first met his mother and say to his mother, you know, your little boys in my class? Brilliant little boy. Tell me, how did you raise him? He's a very special boy, very pious,
very intelligent. Which he said, Well, every time I used to give him breast, if time is to feed him to put him on my breast, I never used to put him on my breast, except when I'm in a state of Voodoo.
Every time I want to breastfeed him, I take hold on I breastfeeding.
That's why mothers have to be at home.
Today, the mother works, rashes from work comes out when the baby cries put the dishes in a different mood because it just come out of traffic. She has to feed the child, and this all affects the child.
And then the father came home of sadness.
And the father came home and he was he was he had his cow with him on a string. And the teacher noticed that the cow's mouth was tied up with rope completely shocked with rope. And the answer finally said to the Father, you know, why do you torture animal? I mean, why don't you let his mouth open? So the father said, No, my length, the length that he feeds on, I have to cross my neighbor's land.
And I'm afraid
that maybe when I cross my neighbor's land, the cow will eat from his grass, and that will make them bokhara.
Can you imagine?
And this is what is meant by constancy and God consciousness
to be everything, and this is Islam. Islam is all about shouting to at the top of your voice, you know, Salah louder
or wearing a quarter and a topi the whole day? No, that's not Islam.
Islam is about daily life are you bringing up your children? Are you teach your children
read the Quran, make your Salah. This is
not my sermon, your Islam. This was the Islam of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.
He was asked about how is the Prophet day? How did the Prophet spend his day?
What did he do?
He had to
so what do we learn that he said the whole day and make this new? I just said, used to work at home, do work at home, whatever needs to be done at home. Maybe it's a dirty socks if your socks or his clothes, man, wash his clothes, clean the house. Remember, this is not the task of the wife. Why the 500 Salah hora de la sala. And she said when Salah came is to leave the house and go for Salah.
This is the life of course many things he did. But generally she said as far as she saw him in Alex's house, right? This was his life inside his house. And this was of course the life of the mothers of the prophets are in a Salatu was Salam. And so we find even that nobody is a gurria We ask Allah for the son, Noah gave him a son by the name of Yahuwah. And when the angel came to him, where did the angel find him? When Arica de aza Korea Robo caller A B, I believe khazaria
zaccaria first asala beta prayer ask Allah to give him a son.
And whenever Zakaria zecharia and when the angel came.
Because this was now talks about Nabhi say that in America. But when the angel came to give the Latin into the BIA, what was he doing? Find that to America wahaca him when you suddenly finger up, when the angel brought in the news that your wife is going to give birth to a son yahia was he was videoed. He was found to be in a state of worship, found to be in a state of the worship of Allah, Allah. So worship then
makes us constant in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
The next factor that
brings us makes us constant is worship or a bada?
bada as I said in the beginning, those who worship allows longer standing and sitting in on the sides
Hulk is somewhat about creation of the heavens and the earth.
We should contemplate on the creation not contemplate on ology content creation.
So heinola was speaking about the mother. Another example of the mother is that a mother's milk in winter is cool.
And a mother's milk in mother's milk in winter, sorry, is warm, and a mother's milk in the winter cools down. There's no fridge inside the mother and no air conditioning system. risala made it and I just read yesterday, in a magazine called Scientific American. They've done more studies on Mother's Milk. They have now discovered that the milk I mother makes when she's pregnant with a boy child is different from the milk she produces when she's pregnant with a girl child.
panel, because men and women are different.
I think it's men that got the testosterone, isn't it? The terrible thing that makes us who we are. So, because we are different, we need different kinds of nourishment.
If we had been created by some
or if we had been, what's the word what is the what evolution if we had been the results of evolution, this would not have been it would have been but because there is a there is a great mind there is an intelligence there is an Alan Isla who is who governs and sets out managers and balances. That is why we have what we have.
And that is why the sun in the moon doesn't clash with the earth and that is why we we are as safe as we are in Sharla for the time being the next factor which
consolidates our constancy is to invite to our last pinata
now allows what I'm gonna say is
let the water come in Come on madonia their own a lot they live they arise from amongst your group of people that will call to good and forbid the evil
what will I come home from and they will be those will be successful. Now in the mind in your brain. There are different centers for different things. Center for site Center for Hearing, Center for smell for tasting
and so forth. The wonderful boxes if only we should use it. The scientists say we only use 5% of our brains, those people who think they use 5%, those people don't think they probably use point 5%.
Imagine we use 10% of our brains marala or 15%, or 20%. Now in the brain, there is a site called contentment.
And in the brain as far as religion is concerned, as far as Dean is concerned, and there's another site in the brain, which talks about identity in membership. Now, there are many people what is contained to be Muslim?
You'll hear them say all the time, no, my, my imagine my heart, you know,
I don't carry my Eman in a dukey, or a topi or a mafia or a beard, I have it in my heart.
So the outward signs that the person is a Muslim, is condemned to be Muslim. He likes to be Muslim and is contented to be Muslim.
how do we in the brain transfer from just being a Muslim to being a member?
And be identified as a Muslim? How do we make that go from the one to the other one? And they all say that the way to do that is to
engage with Islam? And how do we engage with Islam? We engage with Islam by talking about Islam.
And how do we talk about Islam in a positive way? We talk about Islam by calling to Islam. Everything was God they call a Christian or Jewish or no, that's what Islam means. That is not we mean, that is not what we mean. We mean to speak about Islam first in your family, or you go from the Juma you sit at the table, and you become a die.
That was the first command that was given to Muhammad Ali salatu salam
confounded, Mohammed get up and go and where does he go, go to your nearest fest and call them to Islam. So for you to constantly keep in touch with our Lord to be content you have to call to Islam.
number four is to have a clear goal in life.
Again, allows Muhammad Allah says, and again, quote, reverse those who celebrate the praises of Allah lying down standing on the sides, and you contemplate on the creation of the heavens and the earth. Now this is holiday time.
As an ideal time, I think for us to buy ourselves a good book, to read it.
Time for reading, time for contemplation.
To think about the creation of allows.
Raja Maha de Botton very important. We say our life didn't create this world in vain. Even this create the world to create the world. Free to have a beginning and an end. No so bahala Kakinada burner, Glory Beto, Laos pantalla and we ask Allah to save us from the penalty of the fire. So clear goal means the goal is alone The goal is always alone.
The last one
that will make us strong is brotherhood.
Allows formula says in the Holy Quran, while posse movie happily Larry jbn How does Allah describe brother who's your brother?
Allah says Your brother is the man or woman who holds fast to the Quran with you all fast
towards your brother know the main causes of Muhammad are modifiable.
Your brother is the one who holds fast to the Quran like you owe to the Quran.
That all falls to the sooner you're faster The sooner maybe Salim said
Allah Allah fire Rashid me by the prophesy the whole first to my sadhana and ofosu the Sunnah of my four colleagues after me honorable dr. oz Donnelly
well do I have been noticed and hold on to your back teeth and I was talking to my son and the son of by rightly guided after me.
Who left after me. So then holding forth to the rope of Allah is holding to the Quran and that is brotherhood
and allows Juan de la says
one at a kuno con la de da de forma quwata laughably bad image of Medina and do not be like those who differ and dispute amongst themselves. When the Quran has come to them.
The clear sign is the Quran and that's why always
Say that when there is a dispute, we should first refer to the
that's why I am sometimes upset with my colleagues in the religious fraternity
that they would knowingly sculpt the Koran and go to some other sources cause any other sources wicked in the Quran,
whether the man is born, was born under the Haji last word
over was born in the middle of module Aqsa
or his father was that'd be Moosa know, all those are irrelevant.
The relevancy for Muslims is
if it can be found in the Quran, it might we must go to the sooner Mohammed Salah. But you can first go to the sooner then soprano. let's reverse. So our disputations arise because of the fact that we ignore the Quran.
And when we ignore the Quran, Allah swans, Allah places amongst us
So along swans, Allah wants us to
be firm, intellectually constant.
And now I come to the dimension last week, the story of the Christians of Nigeria, it's probably
a story that is very relevant for this time.
Christmas is next week.
And this way, these verses
are the verse of this. People of Niger Ron
was revealed to the rubies of Salah
just before his death, so sudo Ali Imran
although it is the third surah in the Quran, it deals with issues
that happened only the end of the Nevada masala summer.
Now, you and I know that Muhammad Allah Salaam, his prophethood started between six and 700 years after Nabi sallallahu wasallam, which means Christianity had a very long run,
particularly in that part of the world, without a head start on Islam of nearly 700 years, or 701 of the main centers of Christianity in the Arabian Peninsula was natural
and natural on
this day, there is a map field there is nothing wrong.
On the southern border of Saudi Arabia presently,
quite a distance from Medina,
with Yemen at the bottom.
Of course, this is Egypt, Sudan. And days all the fighting going on in Syria, because you can't see my finger.
Very established Christian community established by the Byzantine Empire.
The Caesar at the time was iraklis. And he they he spent millions
in building churches all over northern Africa
and on the Arabian Peninsula.
And many people converted to Christianity because the Roman Church at the time was a very rich church as it still is today.
It's still both church, Catholic churches all over the world supports the bishops and everything else. Lots and lots of money go around
in the last year of the Prophet's life
after coming back from the Battle of tabuk
this was a time also a good time for the Navy sauce alum because
he had subdued the whole of the Arabian Peninsula at this time.
And in this year, lots of delegations came to Medina from all around the Arabian Peninsula recognizing that Islam
was now a force to be reckoned with that Islam
was now the leading light
in the Arabian Peninsula, so many types came to place the allegiance of the Navy sola, sola.
Many came to ask about Islam
War was down. There's no more war
at that time
and the clutches of Iran like everybody else,
decided the Prophet wrote latest all the tribes and received the later facilities are seldom inviting them to Islam. 60 of the people came to Medina
60 people to have them not drawn to Medina. They were hated by a bishop
of the Catholic Church.
And all the people who came were all
bishops and whatever Cardinals whatever they have in the in the Catholic Church, but it was 60 of them.
And they spent three days in Medina.
And of course, there was no Holiday Inns at the time in hotels.
So the only place to accommodate the 60 Christian priests was to accommodate them in the masjid.
And the first night it was Muslim.
And they asked whether they could say the phrase in the masjid
and the profits etc. When we complete our prints you can see it's a hub of a very upset about this. How can you allow these people to
pray in the masjid? You know? Paul was very tolerant.
So for three days, there was discussion between the Nerys of Allah and the Christians, most of the discussion centered around
what is Islam?
What are the principles of the faith in Islam?
But on the last day, they asked the most important question.
They said O Muhammad Sallallahu sallam,
we have no problem with your faith.
But we want to know, what does your faith say about Jesus?
your Quran say about Jesus?
promises Allen said,
I have to wait for revelation I can't answer. Wait for revelation. And when Allah saundra informs me I will inform you.
And then revelation came in Sherif Ali Imran was 6059. To 61 allows fatherless review to the Nexus Allah. In myth law is the law either chemically either allows it to the nervous system.
The likeness of Jesus, by Allah is the likeness is as the likeness of Adam.
hanekom into Rob from Nicola who confess
He created him of dust. And then he said to him be
I'll hakomi Arabic The truth is from Allah.
ferrata commentary of Mohammed Salah do not waver in the truth, which is what is the truth?
a sir like I created either
from dust. And I said after the dust Be and it became
from an Heart Chakra for human body images, majha Carmina line and those who dispute with you after you've received this revelation faco tolo now comes in.
So just clear.
Our view of Jesus is that he
because at that time, the Christians believe he was already that he was the son of God. Now the law and finally of course,
the Jews intruded and change the faith and even change Jesus into into God.
So now allows I'm going to say to them, you have not spoken to him for three days. You get to tell them this And finally this is what you need to tell them
because critics of Iran they were nice people you know these Christians are we Catholics very nice, cheery, gentle people said Is it oh Mohammed we can't accept this. We can't we you know we believe in you know, we believe in Him as as being the son of God model.
So the Prophet Allah revealed, watching the Prophet do
how should we react to this
allows the city
Omaha masses and if they don't want to accept this
say to them
Nando Abner Abner comm one in Santa Monica comm one Susannah one for Saku through mud. Suma Deb Tara hill?
I'll also tell them
that is a doctor except that the answer is a man
created from dust. Then call your father's,
your children and I will bring my children. You bring your wives, I'll bring my wife's you bring yourselves and I will bring ourselves to do what
someone uptight and what will we do?
We will ask a lot to Gus, la de la la,
la la la la Academy. We will together you have 60 Christians, Christian bishops and Archbishop's I will come with my family. And we will pray to God to curse the party that is lying.
Because, you know, this was
not an easy task because
they obviously recognized him to be a very great man, and maybe even a prophet. And if a prophet puts curse on you, you know, people are very wary and scared of this kind of thing. So they said, Sorry, you know, we'll come back tomorrow. Let's think about this, you know. So the next day we came to the Navy and said, Mohamed, we can't accept this. We're not going to participate in the MOBA. Holla. We're not going to participate in this cursing thing. You know, we were afraid of this, you know, but
they said, We want to live in peace with you.
So what we'd like you to do is look at the numbers as
they say to you, we want you to grab a treaty between us and you some agreement. But you we want you to drop the agreement over hamata Lawson.
There's so much trust in Him, despite the fact that he didn't want to accept what he said about Islam, that they asked him to draw up an agreement. And the agreement was really part of the agreement. Professor Sam wrote, that describes to write the agreement. After Bismillah R Rahman Rahim.
He wrote naturalness, the protection of Allah
and the pledge of Mohammed, the prophets, Allah, Allah, to protect the lives, they face, the land, the property, those who are absent in those who are present and declines and allies, they need not change anything of their past customs, no right of this or the religion shall be altered. No Bishop, monk or church, God shall be removed from his position, whatever they have his days, no matter how big or small, they are not held in suspicion, and they shall suffer no vengeance killing, they are not required to be mobilized, and no army shall trespass on their land. But isn't me saying that we will protect you, our Muslim army will protect you.
If any of them requests that any right of he should be given to him, Justice shall be administered among them. Now comes the bug The only one thing the Prophet disallowed
all these all this of protection, setting an army leaving the churches leaving the faith intact the traditions intact everything in tech, one thing the prophet SAW him say to the
professor and said, but I would throw all this all this protection if you do one thing and what was that? He said our withdraw all this if you do not stop practicing Riba?
So hon Allah, He didn't say, if you drink wine
or eat pork, no.
Because it is this that destroys a people
already out 15 centuries ago, prophecies are most predicted the position the world is in today.
The collapse of democracy, the collapse of capitalism in the east and the west and all over wherever you go, because of the intrusion of the interest based system and the rebar system. So always say to young people are not yet into the system. Never ever try and get into any kind of rebar situation if you can.
Because Allah, Allah says that it will be hard to be mean a libel suit.
If you enter into Riba, Allah and His Prophet will declare war on you.
And it is a battle you cannot win.
It's a battle
That leads to destruction.
So here we have it a few days before Christmas. This is what interfaith is about.
It is about the acceptance of Islam and the descendency of that which is against the to heat Avalos.
We can only sit in the company of those faiths that are not in acceptance into us, but subordinate to us
and we've said and I said in the beginning, that one of the qualities of Islam is its distinctiveness. Everything is distinct. We look at our age for example.
celebrate nubby Brahim No,
no further we don't celebrate brother or hood.
Or the greatness of the army that conquered in Ramadan.
Oh, we don't celebrate Muhammad Salam as a as a prophet of Allah subhanaw taala.
Angel feather is a celebration of the end of Ramadan.
It's a celebration of the greatness and glory of allows. Why? Because the aid begins with tech be
to elevate allows to glorify or last.
But today we have a situation where we have
digressed and deviated
from two leads to many leads from two official leads to many other leads we have read mila esala Salah next week at the eighth celebration of the birth of Ibiza, Alice, Ursula.
Is it true? Is it
the Christian celebrate a prophet that we recognize also to be a prophet? Isn't it? Anybody who doesn't recognize as as a prophet, not Muslim?
Do we all agree that he is a Prophet salallahu alayhi salatu salam,
the next week,
a great majority, billions of people all over the world will celebrate his birthday.
If we recognize as as a prophet of Allah, like we recognize Mohammed Ibrahim and moose and Harun to be prophets of Allah.
Then we should be the first to celebrate
the bowl of the free salad salad next week.
We should be weighing the promises from came to Medina. What did he say? What did he see? He saw the Jews were forcing on the 10th of Muharram. So what did he say? He said, You Jews. We are closer to Masada, new Jews we're celebrating this day when Allah saved the Jews from Freetown. So why are you Why are you celebrating? They said we said we are celebrating because Musa was saved by a long distance of poverty. We are close to 270 we were fast in this day.
A lot longer says about the ambia ladder for the kobina hadn't
main home. We do not distinguish between our profits, all of the same, all of them are the same.
So why don't we celebrate the birth of Lisa Lisa?
Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam did not celebrate the birth of a solicitor.
Neither the birth of musar is neither berthiot Ibrahim Alison
otherwise we would all have Christmas next week. Isn't it?
But we don't we have April 5. And
so why are we celebrating the birthday of the Prophet Sal alarmism?
When Allah says that he doesn't distinguish between one prophet and another prophet
Ibrahim A prophet Yes. Are they of the five all of them the five great prophecies all of them?
So why do we celebrate the birth of Muhammad a lot?
I know it's a
because people will say immediately you see people who don't celebrate the birthday of the Navy Salam do not love the Prophet
so I don't celebrate the birth of Isa I don't love anything of course and
just because the Christian celebrate his birthday so I don't like it
it's a first in this
don't Allah say you must put salatu salam Ala Moana Salalah Salim to see in allow Morocco, you see they don't like to put salatu salam.
As I said
the Dean of a law is not something which you can take something out and put it aside and put no
this is exactly why the Navy Solazyme did not celebrate his birthday.
Why not? Why didn't he do it?
Because he would have opened the door to the celebration of so many birthdays
we would have said well as as a prophet musar the Jews when they have Yom Kippur and young this and Yom that and you're
also a prophet.
And you've actually gone that route. We have all Sharif or Sharif, what is all Sharif? Sharif is you celebrate
the day that pin
Morita whatever his name is died
in atmosphere, at the college mosque
on Robben Island. Wherever you go, they put the new cloth on.
And you walk around it and you jump up and down and you shout and you carry on like mad people. And that is why the Navy suddenly didn't do it.
Now you say but no but but what is it?
What is wrong to do it?
If we say there's nothing wrong with it. Now remember, celebration of Mahatma Salam is an everyday celebration that you might also celebration,
because that's what he did. He had Juma every Friday. He said the best day of the week is Friday, eight of the Muslims every Friday aid.
And every Friday he says put Salawat on me the whole day. This is the day of Salawat he said, You love me to chill out.
The Christians say they celebrate Jesus his birthday because they love him. You see on the cast because I love Jesus. I love Jesus. That's all filled full stop. I love Jesus. That's it.
Nothing more than that.
What does Allah say to us about love? Because we know you don't love Mohammed
we know he was loved and it is obvious you have to love you cannot live as a Muslim. Proper test on himself said
that none of you truly believes Anthony loves me more than himself.
To have to love himself. But how do we love do we love like the Christians love
in a drunken stupor.
eating pork and drinking wine and celebrating killing themselves on the road is this.
What is Allah says, in contrast to a boon Allah, God, how do we show love? Allah says Allah, Allah says, If you say you love me, Allah says in content a bone Allah if you say that you love a law
What must you do?
This if you say that you love a law, then what must you do? factor the only make a teabag Mohammed What must you do? You must follow Mohammed Salah.
This love is de perros Allah. C'mon, Allah says follow him. What does it mean follow him? It means follow him in what he did. Follow him in what I gave to him to give to you.
They're up to
my intimate success.
To be marketable I was.
I have given you know, I've read for you the Quran and the Sunnah. So our love for Bahasa Salaam is known by uniting
No, we love and express our love like unloaders in contrast to Hey boy, if you say you love Allah factor B, O ne, then follow me systems. So what will happen? Your neighbor Kabbalah, Allah will love you.
If we open the door to changes in our being didn't do we open doors that we cannot close.
If I stand in front of you, and I say, Fine, even the property didn't do it, there's nothing wrong with it, we put out and then we go home and we create opportunities for all kinds of facade.
In mass gatherings, where men and women will mix really
well, let's assume, let's say
you know, small matter, let it go. Just leave it in.
What will happen tomorrow, somebody will come and say, but Abu Bakar was also great men
should have some celebration Abu Bakr have after all, you know, he was with a prophet in the cave, you know, he was stone support
and so was all mine.
And so it's awesome man.
And there's a precision to this, that the she has went to such a degree in elevating early some of the made him Oh God.
That is the extent to which
we will go, if we do not follow Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
to the extent where even a grant and other properties elevated above the prophets, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah said nursing
people at blood flow from their bodies,
people die in India during the time of the year, when Muslims take to the streets,
and the Hindus stop them and they effectively kill each other.
Because we have deviated from the path.
Now, the question is,
why did this happen in the first place, with recovered property?
Where did this come from?
It was established 600 years
after the demise or death of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
By the fatimids, the Shia rulers of Egypt at the time
who wanted to embrace the Sunni subjects by showing them how much more they loved a B, then what the Sudanese loved than a B cell was.
So the father of it started the practice of celebrating mood.
They've already the she has already celebrating the day of Ashura was
saying and so for the song,
elevating signally, above everybody else, even above the Prophet.
And it also fell in line with Christian ideology. That while the Christians can celebrate the burden of the Prophet,
the God who eventually became a god, why can Muslim no celebrate the birth of the Prophet but it's a big difference.
Difference he said we have a law
we have a Quran we have a Sunnah.
And our commandments come from the Quran and Sunnah.
And we're not allowed to deviate from the Quran and Sunnah.
Allah subhanaw taala.
has made this Dean I want to say emphatically, a distinct religion from all others.
We do not celebrate the death or birth of anybody in Islam. Nobody.
Nobody. There is nobody in Islam, whose death or birth we celebrate,
And those are only two official celebrations. In the deen in our Deen of Islam. We
celebrated by Mohammed Salah Larsson
and fasting Of course, on the day of Ashura on the 10th of March, not because say now I'm saying that because when the Prophet was a large enough saying was not even born and he was
so accurate for seduction was good not celebrated neither by the prophet neither by the Sahaba.
But there's another issue which we need to deal with. And the issue is
what do we do?
How do we deal with this issue?
Because it's an emotive issue. It's an emotional issue.
You will go back many of you will say, same story, these condemning moaner condemning them.
And those who say that,
I'd like you to say that. I want you to say that. Because they have tiama. I will appear with you in front of Allah and Allah will say, Come Yeah, did you say this man couldn't condemn? You know, he didn't say that. But you said, so take from his good deeds and put it on a scale.
So I don't even know, you want to go out and say, he doesn't love Proverbs, he condemns it. And
when I say we, I mean,
And as I say to you, I'm not here to convince you.
I'm not here to say don't make model. I didn't say that. Whenever I say down my model, I said, this is what it is. You want to go and make it.
You can do whatever you want. My job is to tell you the truth.
Whether you like it, or you don't like it. That's a math problem. Now we saw someone came, and he spoke the truth. Everybody didn't like it.
We know that after 30 years of preaching in Makkah, he only had 1050 people who followed him.
And he wasn't he was habibollah.
How do we handle the traditional side of it, that we have been doing this? for 300 years? and more. Although not in this country in the cape.
coast, certainly the majority of the people in housing don't celebrate mode.
So you can't say well in South Africa, no, that's a lie.
There are many people all over the country, many people all over the world. They don't celebrate.
And they love the Prophet maybe more than what we love the prophets alongside.
But there is something which I want to say to you today.
And that is maybe there are times when we need to think about who this man Mohammed was. Salalah listen.
Maybe there are times we need to reflect on his character, his personality, what he brought for us, he bought that's why we're human beings because of him.
I can speak to you about the Quran and Sunnah because of him.
And maybe just maybe in the month of his birth, not his birth, his month of his birth.
Maybe you could reflect
on the profits or losses.
And so for the month of review,
I've decided to deviate somewhat from my Tafseer of the law.
And to talk about
and why Allah loved him so much.
And how do we express our love for him?
I have no fatwah
I have no fatwah
for those who celebrate knowledge
Who am I to get fat wildness
I can only say what the prophet de dude what he didn't do.
I cannot condemn people who celebrate.
That's my job.
Neither can I praise those who celebrate but
I cannot condemn people who don't make Salah.
I can encourage people to make self
condemnation is not for men to men.
Because if I condemn a demo, fellow Muslim brother or fellow Muslim sister
my duty and God is to guide
if your child does something, no, you can't condemn him. Constantly your child you know, you did this I condemn you
that's for me to decide.
But what I must tell you is that this is the reality.
This is why the Prophet didn't do it. That's why that's a habit they didn't do it was open the door.
the burning of domes or the grades
returned by the levee system.
Now the Sahaba maybe gave strict instructions to destroy all domes over mosques over grades.
He was buried in his house
because abubaker was asked Where are we going to bury the nepotism after his death.
And abubaker said I remember the Navy sasaram saying that prophets are buried where they die.
And so the Prophet was not buried in the mosque.
He was buried in his house which was next to the mosque
but because of the expansion of the heart on the roof, because they couldn't make a hole they were the profits and take the roof across.
And there was no mycelium both there was no dome built over the grave of the must is flat it's sofa
Why did the Prophet say does it Nally wherever you can create destroy all the domes or the buildings over Why? Exactly for the reason that people will go and make these places of worship. There is a Some say do not make your graves places of worship.
Don't be like the Christians who make the graves of the Pope's and their whatever alsef as places of worship.
This has nothing to do with the people who are buried there. They are free from any blame by a loss.
Or the only Olia ambia Salin. We come along and we will test out some of this.
So people say, if you don't say that we can build a dome over the valley, then you are condemning the world. It's kind of
Command of Muhammad Allah.
And there are people who write in the newspapers, Muslim newspapers.
They're asked get other people to write for them in the Muslim newspaper.
They're not alums, but they write as if they are and they require no response.
Because these are matters on which all our March would express the opinion in printed form.
I've said more than I wanted to say today, but because it's Christmas next week, I thought maybe we have a little bit of extra time.
So I hope that I have spoken clearly and ambiguously to you today.
We will have a lecture
on the 12th row below.
As a final tribute
to the son of Mohamed Salah lorrison that will be it.
I was hoping but this year I have got other issues that I need to see to my studies are keeping me very busy.
But I was hoping that we could read Buhari
maybe next year inshallah
on a Sunday morning,
maybe over a period of three months
ending in the month of October
and we celebrate what God wanted us to celebrate his son
that is what he wanted us alive for you my son didn't leave me for you I left you my son bachata celebrate
a journey to understanding this great myths about loss formula inshallah guide us where allows founder to make a strong and constant
constant on the Quran in constant on the Sun amatola Salah Fallout Allah Allah wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
