There's a lot of men that have been
handler have been alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. One early he was
the professor I seldom is our role model. He is the one we we learn everything about our lives and how to conduct our lives, everything we learned from the prophets lesson. And what's amazing about the life of the Prophet is that every single aspect of his life has been recorded for us, whether he's outside in the public, whether he's inside with his wives at home, or his children at home, every aspect has been recorded. And it's a beauty and it's almost like a miracle that we have when the pastor set an example for us to follow. And Allah says in the Quran in surah, Surah lampada kana comfy rasuna. He has Neiman
Marcus he all the indeed you have in the example, the example, a good example, in the life of Muhammad,
the Messenger of Allah, for whoever longs for the last day in the last panel with
for the believers, those who looked at last month, I look forward to meeting him. Mohammed I sent him as our example. Now this includes all states of his one of the Muslim was happy or sad, whether he was in times of difficulty, or times of ease times of victory or times of defeat, in all cases, in all situations, the problem has started as our example. Now if we look at the life of the Prophet, and I said, No, we find that his life from beginning to end is full of tests,
full of trials, in the processor himself even said, I shouldn't do nasty, but I'm an MBR, an employee who
is the most severe tested amongst the people are the problems.
And then the next in line and then the next in line meaning the more higher your Eman is, the closer you are to a profit, the more tests one will face in their lives. There's a panel on the left with a promise is full of tests. We know that before he was born,
his father died.
His father of the law died before he was born.
So now you might say, well, is that really a test of the prophecies on the US someone that he loved? No, he never knew his father to develop a love for him. But absolutely, it's the test.
The purpose of them is growing up and seeing other children spending time with their fathers and playing with their fathers and, and hanging out with their fathers. And he's my son doesn't have that.
And he was born raised by his mother.
Now his mother died when she was six years when he was six years old.
Now the first four years of the process of his life he spent with venom sad with primarily with honey Miss Saudia.
So the Prophet really got to know his mother more closely from ages four to six.
And now the age of a four year old in our times is like a preschooler, five year olds, kindergarten, six year olds is first grade. So children at that point they're learning there, and back then they were much more mature than, than our children now and our times. So the bonds of of love and friendship and devotion and loyalty are all developed well before this age. So both of them developed a very strong connection with his mother. And now when his mother died at six, he lost, he lost his mother even affected him decades later.
he says it's set
up on a
webcam and held
the processor and visited the grave of his mother and he began crying, and he caused his crying was so severe that he caused others around him to cry.
Just by seeing him cry, they cry.
Now, this is decades later, the prophet visited his grave, her grave and he began crying, why?
Because he remembered the loyalty and the kindness and the and the look for the the, the the caring nature of his mother for him when he was he was being raised by her.
And then he fights and i'm saying is, is that Robbie Fiennes something
was beefy and azura.
So zoom in to the Kiran Kumar notes. He says that I asked Allah subhana wa Taala for permission to ask forgiveness from my mother.
But it was denied to me.
It does not allow for a believer to ask forgiveness for a non Muslim.
But he says I asked the residences I asked Allah for permission to visit her grave and he allowed me to do so. So he thinks so visit graves for reminds you of death.
Mr. Say howdy in the books even imagine, so you get the idea to the point of mentioning this is a good idea. Even when the professor is 4050 years old, he still cries when he visits the grave of his mother.
Now she died when he was when he was six years old and he went to the care of Abdulmutallab his grandfather, only two years with his grandfather, his grandfather passes away, then from years eight until he became a full man, he was raised by his uncle, Uncle Bob.
this is his childhood.
Imagine going through life without a father without a mother, bouncing from home to home is difficult.
When he became a prophet, then the tests increased exponentially,
You know, before he was known as a father, I mean, the truth, the truthful and trustworthy. After he became a prophet, literally, he would walk in the streets of Mecca, and the people would mock him saying, Have you spoken to the heavens today?
Have you gotten any news from the heavens today? Imagine a man Imagine if today, a friend of yours or a stranger came to you and said, I was in a cave by myself in the middle of the night. And this huge creature came to me and hugged me and squeezed me and told me to read three different times. And I was afraid I was losing my mind and the things that would be hard to believe.
Now we believe in it. Without seeing the positive, we believe in the promise. But the people now and then when they hear this kind of like, that's a little bit of a tall tale. That's hard to believe.
He even says, what
he who he was Illa
Viva la hora Su, when they see you, they take you in mockery.
They say Are you the one who alive as a prophet you? Are of all people No, unless without a canal found someone other than you. The only time they insult him in his face, they lied about him in what we call character assassination, which we see nowadays as well when a government or an entity doesn't like a certain Muslim individual even non Muslims they'll assassinate his character you know what he does the lie about him he's done ABC he's done this that and that.
And so some Muslims that they distance themselves from these people it's a it's a plot that's been going on since the time of Fidel and even before him.
They call them a liar, the magician, mage noon crazy, a soothsayer, a poet all these things they call them so at this this affected him Imagine you're going to you're going out into the public and people who used to know you as the trustworthy honest because that's what you were
now they're insulting you with everything they can literally think of this I heard that he was a man
she was a man he was a human being. Yeah emotions like we have.
So most parents, Allah says
in Zulu can Lady
the Buddha was looking at me, you know, bi de la he.
Allah says that we certainly know that what the thing about you causes you much grief.
But it didn't just go to insulting him and mocking him and then character assassination. They as you know, they physically attacked the processor, took a rock and threw it at the head and a hit the skull of the processor. And it began bleeding who might even have one to the profit literally in his face. He just spit in his face.
They took the intestines in the organs of the Jesu to the camel that's for slaughter. And as even such that they dumped it on his back and on his forehead on his on his head to the point that he he didn't raise up from sister until he found Pima his young daughter a child
comes in removes it and then curses the people who did that to her father.
Now it went to the point that just all of those things, the ones I said he sees about himself in a sign had eaten the books remember 10 million he says
I have been threatened in a way that no one has been threatened.
One need to feel loved when you and I have been harassed and and tested in a way that no one has been tested.
And he sees what
I'm doing I'm in beanie Yeoman with a
woman he what he been on Yahoo Kevin.
He's gonna say is there came upon a time
upon me that for 30 days and nights, I didn't have anything to eat meat or be not even the robot,
nothing to eat that he says nothing that even any creature would eat.
So not just food, but anything that even anything you would consider to be fooled by any creature Illa. Now you are able to be done, except for what benign robot was able to hide under his armpits? Can you imagine that? Somebody bringing you your meal under his armpit with any of you except that to eat
the meat mean, this is all he had for 30 days and nights.
This is what he went through.
Now, this is something we all know. But what I wanted to share with you is another aspect of the testing process that doesn't we don't really hear about much. And that is the internal tests. Why he went through at the whole, what do I mean by that? You know, it is, it is a common wish
of everyone to have children, even the Gambia, the prophets of Allah in the Quran, they make it but he wasn't until more than eight years old before he had his first child We ask Allah to bless him with a child. Now the problem is, is that I was blessed with how many children
profit we don't know his own children 777 children in the processing. The problem had seven children Now listen to this. How many children outlived the prophets?
That means six children of his died in his lifetime.
Can you imagine fathers and mothers what it's like to lose not just one child, but six children, three of whom died as babies.
The loss of a child is perhaps the biggest test someone can face.
And for that, that's why the Muslim sees in a heartbeat that the one who is patient at the loss of a child and is thankful to Allah. He has the whole built for him agenda.
The process of last six children.
Now his children, they were his first child was awesome. Then he had his daughter's Xena bukannya fathima. four daughters and then he had the law. And lastly, towards the end of his life he had Ibrahim now plus them the first child died as a as a baby or as a child, the narrations differ, some say he was two years old, something he was old enough to ride an animal maybe four or five. Regardless, we know he died as a child.
So now, as I said, I'm not the Prophet mom says I'm the father. us with the loss of a child
after him now, then after him, his son Abdullah died as a baby
The profit loss Abdullah when he was a baby,
can you imagine that? And we already just briefly mentioned I don't want to spend time in it because you know this already, the testes facing outside the home with insults every day attacks on his character physically harmed, though that's what are you dealing with outside the home, but on top of that he's dealing with the loss of his own children inside the home.
salon he was but he kept on giving the doubt. That's why when he got the message, he told Khadija his wife, mother I had no me deja.
The time for rest is gone over deja.
And then after
later, in the Battle of whether we know it was love is Yeoman. On the day of the word truth was set apart from falsehood, the great battle of better the first battle in Islam.
The Muslims go and they come back with the victory from Allah Subhana Allah,
Allah ated them with angels and gave them victory.
Now this was a wonderful day for the Muslims.
When they were outnumbered more than three to one, when they only had a few few weapons and only two horses in the army of 300. They faced the army of 1000.
So when they get victory from Allah, this is a reason to celebrate, be happy.
The Mamas, the father comes back to Medina and is greeted with the news that his daughter Roca has died.
So even moments of happiness are followed by moments of tests and sadness.
It wasn't too long after that, that I don't think it was the wake of
the prompts. I said I'm married to him is his next daughter. And then
Again the narrations differ within a few months to a few years, Uncle Phil also dies.
Again the Prophet loses another giant,
his fourth child that he lost.
Now after the Battle of whether what happened was Zaynab. his, his eldest daughter was married to a man named Apollo house, who was a missionary. And he actually fought against the Muslims in the battle.
And he was taken as a prisoner of war. Now, part of the agreement when they he was released was that he would allow us to make his hero to Medina, this is before Of course, the the revelation came that a Muslim woman cannot cannot be married to a non Muslim man.
So they he goes back and he agrees to send Xena to the Prophet his daughters.
Once you mount the camel and two men were sent to bring her she came under attack by cold ice. And they threw a spear at her and they struck her and she felt offer Campbell she was actually pregnant at this time, and she had a miscarriage.
So they killed Christ killed the potential grandchild of the cause.
Not only that, but the injuries Zayn have suffered from that attack. Many of the writers of clsd she died from those injuries later in the sixth or eighth year after ahijah.
So they killed his own daughter
and his potential grandchild.
Not only that,
the problem was when he's 61 years old, two years before his death, he sent his letters to different different leaders than he received as a gift from the leader of Egypt. buco,
the leader of Egypt, he sent in response to this letter that I sent him send him inviting him to Islam, he didn't accept Islam, but he ordered the message that he sent as a gift to the Prophet Maria and cheating Maria and cheating to sleep gross.
Now Sinead was given as a gift from the office,
but kept it up for himself. And he was blessed with a child through Madea his name was Ibrahim.
Now imagine this brothers and sisters depositum is 61 years old. He has lost at this point, five children only poppema remains. He has one daughter now he's born with a son.
Imagine the happiness that he has at this point in his life after
he's given around the time that he's given this gift of a son and he says when he that he later
asked me to be a boy.
He says tonight a child was born to me. I have named him the name of my father, Ibrahim harissa.
He named his child Ibrahim.
Now just like the props I sent him was raised in bedroom side by side. This was the custom of the Arabs they would send their children to be raised and not in the city in a little way from the city. The prompts I sent a son Ebrahim to be raised by a man his name was Abu Saipan and Saudi man and his wife.
And they stayed in what's known as a while in Medina or the southern parts of Medina, the hills hilly area Medina, that he was raised there.
Now the pumps are set up his own son how much he loves his son is away from him and not in his household. So the Pulitzer Center would go, and he would visit abou safe
to see his son O'Brien.
And it's mentioned in an insane Buhari that unemployment and ignorance are the positive ones with the Sahaba he would go with different companions, and he would pick up his son if
he'd forgotten Bella who was Shama he would pick him up and he would kiss him and spell him and hug him and any soul shines of affection is as if he was longing for the moment, if at all, he would be old enough to come back and be in his own household.
Parents nowadays, when their children are older, you know, when your child gets married and moves out or your child goes to the college away from you. You love to see your child.
When they come back, after a couple months or a month or so.
beards are so overwhelmed with happiness, and they do everything they can to make the child happy.
They're away from Ibrahim is longing for the moments he sees it but I
know and it's erratic, he says that we came upon a blue safe to visit the childhood but I am a second time or not second time.
Have a leader another time. And he says
he will you do be next.
We came upon Ibrahim. And the problem is that him is there. And Ibrahim is breathing his last breaths, he became so ill that he was about to die.
And the Prophet is holding Ibrahim in his hands. Imagine mothers and fathers holding your child as your child is breathing its last breaths.
If he was 18 months old
infants, a child a baby
prophet is holding his own son.
the process, Salem's eyes began to shed tears
its own child dying in his hands.
he sees yellow sort of
sees you cry also out of sort of law, he was surprised that the person was crying.
And he sees your house in the House
or Senate the house. This is crying is a mercy.
Then he said the theme of statements that in the nine or 10 will convey Yes. And what are the
Buddha were in? If you don't think of
them as Oh, no. He says certainly the eyes shed tears and the hearts Lord.
But we only say that which pleases Allah subhana wa.
In Valley now we're in the in a urology home.
And then he said and we most definitely are at your departure or Ibrahim, you're passing away but are him extremely grieved and sad.
six children died and he died when the profit center was 63 years old.
Soon before the guide.
Now if you take all this into consideration, is this the most difficult test the Prophet faced?
if all this was imagined the severity of test this wasn't the most difficult. You know, we said that the police were so upset with the Muslims we're trying everything to stop them and stop the spread of Islam. After Hamza entered into stop and after I'm on
the stand. They said this harbor before would never dare to pray publicly. Now they prayed publicly. It was a victory for
Muslims. A portion of them went to Abyssinia so the potential that we have a problem the Muslims are growing in numbers. They have a second base we have to stop them we have to kill the Hammersmith
Noma says what nvm Toby Kennedy.
Vito we are going to
long, one long. mag ed in one day certainly planned to imprison you or to kill you or to drive you out of your home. But Allah sees the plan. And Allah plans and allows the best of planners.
They want to abolish the uncle, the proctor who raised Him from eight years old. He was the one that when the system of Arabia you have to have protection.
You don't have protection from a tribe, then you are you are you aren't you can easily fall prey to torture and punishment. And that's why most of the severe tested Sahaba in Mecca were the slaves because they didn't have protection.
Yesterday in Somalia, the first year that
they were, they were actually free at that point, but they were former slaves. And that's why they were tortured. He was asleep. He was tortured.
Most the most severe. So the Bible has had protection level violence. So they go down with them and they tell him Look, his own uncle who's a non Muslim, they say look, you hand over Mohammed, I sent him to us.
So we can kill him. This has gone too far. He says bill as a non Muslim, he said no.
So they say okay, fine. We'll offer you a trade. You give us Hamas. I said, we'll give you our both noble son. Take him. He's your he's your son.
He said no. They said, Okay, fine. You don't want to you don't want to deal with us negotiate with us. We'll play hardball. We're gonna put an embargo on you sanctions. Sound familiar?
They put an embargo on the Muslims and they signed this document and they hung it in the gather. No food shall go to the Muslims. No, no business transaction with the Muslims. No marriage with the Muslims until they hand over them to be killed.
He, he's from the tribe of Banu Hashim. So they're also non Muslims from this tribe. But this embargo was against the Muslims and non Muslims, whoever supports the prophets, and also that
this is the tribe that Buddha habits from.
who was, of course, the uncle of the Prophet, but a non Muslim that one of the leading enemies of Islam, he was saved from this embargo, he joined the kuffaar. Everybody else Muslim and non Muslim alike, were under this embargo. Three years, no food, no drink, no business at transactions, nothing.
Now, to give you an idea of how much difficulty This is, the US United States of America led a sanctions against Iraq in 1990.
And you know, what happened in five years from 1990 to 1995. UN estimates say that they define there were 500,000, half a million
children under the age of five, who died as a direct result of this embargo.
You met on Albright? You remember the 60 Minutes interview? She was asked, Is it worth it?
Is what you're doing, killing half a million children? Is it worth it?
She said yes.
Because the blood of Muslims nowadays is cheap. They don't care.
And you know what they defined, they said excess deaths. You know what that means? That means they already have an estimates of how many children they expect to die.
They have an estimate how much they expect to die, and 500,000, half a million exceeded what the already estimated would die.
Us did this to the Muslims.
We don't forget history. We can't forget. Because if we don't learn from our history,
then we're in trouble.
We will never progress forward as
a million within five years this embargo on the Muslims three years. So you can imagine I'm scoring tissues, you imagine understand the difficulty they were in suddenly woke cause he says in a week duration. He says we were so tested that literally we would eat the trees tree, the leaves of trees.
He thinks it was so bad. And we get it in a week duration that I was one to urine to use the bathroom. And I found that in the night time I heard a different sound. So I looked at I found that where my earring was going there was a drying piece of leather from a dead animal.
So he thinks I took it and I cleaned it. And I ate it
from how how hungry we were.
That's how difficult it was even. I get another week narration I'm telling you, I didn't nourish it throughout the summer. I'll tell you this week, I'll share that with you. But you get an idea of what it's like to have says, Yeah, and that shout out to john, who Anna is having 100.
All businessmen, they will come especially in the four sacred months they will come to Mecca to do business. He says increase the prices on the people until no one can afford to buy anything from they cannot afford to buy anything from you. And he says what I normally don't allow for I guarantee that you will suffer no losses meaning whatever losses you will suffer, I will cover it I will pay the bill. But don't give the companions any food and eat drink nothing, no business.
So you can imagine how different three years ago I've seen this seeing that the his nephew was his life is in danger. He was drew to what's known as daddy that the Valley of a baton of Chevy.
And there they stayed for three years until finally the embargo ended. Now when the last year of this embargo, what happened was two key events. And it became actually known as the harm in prison, the year of sorrow. So we know we mentioned the test the process that I went through this was even more than was on the process. First his uncle
who was like a father to the profits.
From the time he was eight years old, he was with the house he was in the house.
And when he became a man of a lot of as we mentioned was giving them some protection.
What was on his deathbed he was about to die.
The problem is that I'm sat across from him was telling him see not just say the Shahada can even tell you how Janaka behind the law, or just the statement by which I will you know vouch for you on the Day of Judgment with Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet he was a father to the prophets. The Prophet loved him dearly.
And the most difficult thing for the Prophet would be that he died as the Catherine enter into hellfire. So
across from the pasta cinema on the other side of
the sink, are you going to leave the religion of your father's of the lupulin
so prophets callings Islam, which is calling to come up until finally he sees his last words are done.
I'm going to die in the way I've been looked at as a cabinet and he died anonymously.
To give you an idea of how much this affected the props, I send them
how much love with the proper hacker adult on it 11 years later,
and Mecca, the conquest the opening of Mecca, the public 1000s of people were coming to Him To embrace this
now Abu Bakr on who he comes with his father above
an old man with a white beard and white hair.
Imagine the old man he's walking slowly with a limp, and he's walking to the publicize why to take Shahada and to get me out
on the prophecies of
the Old white year by
the way, had that Yeah.
Why did you leave the old man in his home? I would have come to
this has been a vehicle
that not he thinks that not was.
So one half what his hands in the hands of the palms to give him
I go back and began right
now why do you think
this is the moment when his father after 21 years of giving dalla rejected he rejected this is the moment he embraces
there's nothing for converts There is nothing more beloved to their heart more dear to their heart or their there is to accept this
because they know their paper
so when abubaker sees his father's head at the end of the post
he began he began crying
so the promises that have asked them yeah
you know what he thinks
he sees ya
know, I think to him yet
what you came up a lot with me.
I cried because I when I see the scene, I wish that they had that in your hand right now, giving you a banner was the hand of your uncle.
That Allah honor you know,
that is more beloved to me than my mother's
because he knew
how much love the person
now has two months, was originally just two months after
but either died
was the pillar supporting the process. Whatever tests he faced outside the hope when he would come home and see the smiling face of his wife, all his sorrows are gone. The Prophet loved her so much he said about her.
beingness she believed in me when others disbelief that he was
70 enough. And she gave she gave me she believed in me and supported me when others disbelieved and discredited me. Why cerca de Manny ha hain harmony enough and she gave me her wealth when others for babies from their wealth and allow God to be with children through her and no one else. It is even said that after Khadija passed away, the President was so affected, he couldn't he wouldn't even come out of his home.
You know, the
Abdullah had been her way and he states that the profit was so grieved after that Khadija that he became this habit became worried for the mental state of the process and
they were worried about
even they sent a woman holed up in Turkey. She wants to the parties that haven't told them you have a suit alone. We see that you're not coming out anymore.
He was so sad.
The woman told the most of them and that you have cut yourself off from others because of the loss of Khadija, you know, he says I send them Yes, she was a caretaker of my family and she was my companion
supposed to send them to so you can understand answering all this with you to give you a taste of the mental state of the profit to the point that this year was called I'm in the year of sorrow.
Now after all this happened
was this the most difficult moment in the life of the profits? No.
There was a more difficult moment in this
even I suppose to them and say Howdy, how are they aka yo moon? I said Dominus
has come upon a day more difficult in the day of the day which his teeth were broken. his cheek was slashed His head was injured. His shoulder with injury has become a date upon you more difficult than this when your old uncle died and his habit died. He sees Yes, the day of life.
But isn't sisters you know what happened after the death of Khadija and avoided the profit loss protection on the outside and lost his comfort on the inside. It is said that nobody's slaves. People no stature would literally come with dirt to the process and dump it on his head
and the progress would go home. His hair is muddied his clothes are muddy to show and fathima his daughter would clean the body
of the prophesized cinema, she would cry doing that. And Father, the President told his daughter ofoma Don't cry, Allah will himself take care of your father.
It was so bad because the profit now loss protection from the comparsa is open season we can kill the Prophet, no problem at all.
In the process of saw that the download from grace will they closed their doors, they weren't listening and accepting the message. So we said I'm gonna go to talk
to call the people of this now. Now brothers and sisters, we have to understand something. Number one thought if this more than 60 miles away from Mecca,
and the profit went to by walking.
You know why he went walking?
Because he couldn't go with the police knowing that he left.
They wouldn't allow him.
So he took his adopted son z they've been hiding. Because of the kuffar to see the Prophet walking with his adopted son. They they wouldn't think anything of its normal.
And he walked without a donkey without a mule without food.
Because he couldn't let them know that he's leaving. He just had his staff and he had Zaid
and they weren't walking for 60 miles plus, to go to the people of the past that have his heart is full of hope that maybe they'll accept this now.
This happened after having hasn't. So you understand how sad the Prophet is, and and how overwhelmed he is with sorrow and grief. He goes with hope to the people of thought have and when he goes through them, he goes to their leaders. He goes to the first person and there are three leaders. They're all brothers. He goes to the first person he taught and he the first person tells him that I am going to tear apart the cloth, the robes covering the Kava, if Allah has sent us a province
he was met with more mockery.
He goes to the second leader, he presents themselves to the second leader and he sees the leader tells them about whether the love
that's a lot of found anyone other than you to send us a Prophet's
The third man tells the promise I send him I'm not gonna even talk to you.
Because if you're a prophet, you're too noble for me to talk to and if you're a liar, that is not befitting for me to talk to a liar.
rejected by all three
so I promise when I send them, he tells them Okay, look,
if you're not going to believe in me fine, but at least
talk to Andy
do Don't tell grace that I came to you.
Because if they find out they will become angry with me that they left and so they'll increase in their punishment of their torture that's about the promise and send them number two
that they will become more bold against the Sahaba and the profit because they know the thought I projected him she's don't tell them what what I came to you. Did they listen to the process.
Now I wasn't Oh
One thing trip no brothers and sisters understand this, the pocket when walking for more than 60 miles, and he lived at home, for daughters alone.
Understand that he's already so overwhelmed with grief and sadness. On top of that, he leaves behind four daughters, his wife has died. He doesn't have his wife to be with them. He leaves them alone. And he goes, the heart of the puffs I sent him at this point. You can't really worry, don't give it justice to how overwhelmed he was.
Then he's greeted with this greeting by the leaders. And it wasn't a one day trip brothers and sisters, the VC between 10 to 15 days the profit spent in via what's most widely narrated, was used to be the strongest opinion is 10 days he spent in life. And there was no one who he presented the message to accept that they rejected him and mocked him.
Until finally to hasten the exit of the puppet and Zane they sent the slaves and the and the fools and the anger and the children to chase him out of the town and they took rocks. Imagine the seat or you need a picture this imagine two men, the prophet and they being chased by groups and groups, dozens and dozens of people stoning them and it said that the prophets I sent him never lifted his foot, except that it was struck by a rock
zabis destroyed to protect their profit and he was struck in his head, and it was said that he suffered a fracture in his skull.
Defending the profit is from shutting down his
feet were bloodied until his noble blood was spilled on the grounds of fire.
As they're running away from these crowds of crazy people, you know, how many how many how long they chase them
for more than two miles
non stop Stoney
until he entered into this garden where he rested under a tree and there they left him and they went back.
Imagine the prophets I send them emotions at this point. And then he he makes to do
that gives you an idea of what he was feeling. Now this is a weak narration some scholars hold that essence of the overwhelming majority say it's a weak narration. But regardless if it's weak or not what is true about the narration is not just every word, but every letter reflects the beauty and the majesty and the truthfulness of Google a prophet.

The promise I said any season to say howdy and Bihari that he sees when I left thought it's fun to
follow a step up in our economy. He said, I love and I was so overwhelmed with sadness. I wasn't even aware of my surroundings until I read gardenista Island brothers and sisters, this is a location that is more than 20 miles away from
the prophecy. I was leaving pain in my blood to the point that his shoes were sticking to his feet. For how much it was covered in buddies. I was so overwhelmed and confused and bewildered that I didn't even know I wasn't aware of my surroundings for more than 20 miles
until he sees I looked up when I sat down, I responded. I looked up and there was a there was a cloud shading me an angel sabrine was in the clouds and he sees Yasser Allah. Allah has seen what your people have done to you. And I have been sent with the angel of the mountains of surveying if you so wish, he can be commanded. The angel tells them he said Salaam to the prophecies if you so wish Yasuda Allah, I will crush the people. Now some scholars say actually the people of Mecca. Others say that people have thought with these two mountains, were always wildly narrator's the people of five, but chabane the two mountains are actually the two mountains that surround Mecca.
so well. Now either way, the puffins given opportunity to destroy the people who have been punishing him and torturing him. And he sees no, I hope that from their children in this in this condition, after so much he's one through he's saying I hope from their children, there'll be someone who sees that in a
Now, why am I sharing you with all of this?
This was brothers and sisters, the most difficult day in the life of the Prophet slicin The day of button.
And when the Prophet was in this state, Allah Subhana Allah took it upon himself to give a gift to the prophesizing.
It was after this as a promise that I'm season and had eaten Bukhari and Muslim. Now share with you a combination of both narrations because each has different parts of the nation. The President says he was next to the beta of Allah, the house of Allah when angel came to him and opened up this abdomen and washed his abdomen with some some water and they had a plate full of golden platter full of human and wisdom. And they filled the profit on incentives heart with a man and wisdom and then an animal was brought to the prophets. He finds her and describes as bigger than a donkey smaller than a mule, it was called al buraq. A white animal.
The person who describes his anime sees what he wrote on it every step it took, it was step two, the width of the of the horizon. So imagine, it's it's walk, it's like the earth is wrapping in front of the officer. And then as the Brock is traveling,
surrounding him goes with Brock and angels, you breed and they first go to mesothelial, upright and Philistine.
And it's teaches us the holiness of this place, and we ask Allah to return it to the hands of the Muslims.
He goes there and he says, I tied up on the same ring by which the prophets would tie their animals in the past. And he says, I prayed to rockers and muscle ups, and an eraser, nine behati Muslim and outside other narration, it seems that the person instead of actually led the prophets in prayer in vessel.
And then he ascended with angels to bring it to the heavens and he says, from product to magic, but even had to attain a Daniela, I want to bring it up as imagine this the province ascending into the reaches the limits of the first heaven, and it is said to them, be the man Harada Who is this jubin on Islam says God
is taught and then nohoch who is with you? He says,
aka audison has he been set for CS? Yes. Then they say model hadn't been he was an experimental Mooji Puja, they say welcome to him. And what a great you know visit this is of his, in the scholars even saying that they were asking this person has he been sent for out of astonishment as Allah called a slave for the sleeves of Allah up to
The heavens while he was alive in this dunya
they were amazed what an honor. And then I entered the first heaven and I met my father, Adam.
And Adam sees model heaven be didn't want to be welcome to my son
and a Prophet he thinks Salaam to the prophet and he welcomes him. Imagine the Prophet send them after going all through all what he went through, he meets his father Adam.
What do you want to just sit down and talk to him?
But he had a long journey at it. They go to the second habit is same thing, the angels the second heaven say Who is it, God and who was with you? As even some four years. Then they say what a welcome honor and visit this is and he enters the second heaven. And then he meets Yeah. And he said,
and the same thing they say salam to the Prophet, and they say, welcome in effin wannabe Welcome to our brother and a prophets, the prophets meeting his brothers and prophet odd.
Then the third, and he makes use of his Sunnah. And he knows what uses one through the prophets going through so much difficulty, he knows you suppose, thrown in the well and was thrown in prison. And he was separated from his father and their brothers, he betrayed him. All the tests, he went through, he makes use of an ISA. And he sees he was given half of the beauty. Then he goes to the fourth heaven, the same questions that he meets the reasoning. And the same questions in the fifth come in, and he meets
and the sixth time and he meets mousai. And then he goes to the seventh heaven, and he sees his father, Ibrahim, honey.
And he says in the narration of your Muslim, he sees him leaning against what's known as baits in bad mood.
It's the bait in buy mode is an equivalent in the heavens of what the Gabba is on Earth.
The equivalent of the Kaaba on earth is beaten by more than the heavens. In fact, the Hadith says that 70,000 angels go to this, the beta map mode to worship Allah. And they never returned. They go on one day and they never returned again in the rest of their lives. That means every day, there are 70,000 angels, unique angels who go to beat in that mall to worship Allah. Can you imagine how many trillions upon trillions upon trillions of angels Allah has created Subhan, Allah Subhana and Harlock how perfect is our Lord, the one who created and he's listening to him says that I saw cigarettes in winter, I came to sit out in Montana. It's the last it's a tree. It's the last tree
from this world. After this tree is the art of shovel love, gender paradise. This is the last tree from this world. In fact, he said there were four rivers flowing next to it. He went he asked what are these rivers he was told to are hidden and two are open. The two that are hidden are rivers from Jenna from Paradise. So he actually saw rivers from Paradise, and the tree is so close to paradise, that rivers are flowing next to it.
And there are two rivers that are from this world. The open ones are the Nile and the Euphrates. We need these two rivers in this world are so full of blessings for the people that they're it's equivalent in the heavens. Rather than saying that Allah, Allah commanded to be changed, and he says it was so beautiful that he says, he says
I hadn't been felt the love. Yes, Tokyo and yen it means that no one from the creation of Allah can describe how beautiful this tree was
now telling you this to give you an idea of the sights, the process that I'm saw, he tried to describe as I said, Before it was changed. He said, its leaves were like elephant ears, huge leaves, and he sees its fruits were like these huge vessels from this land and present day behind. That's known for big vessels. He says it was its fruits were like that, that after it changed. It was so beautiful. You can't even describe it.
After this, God tells the Prophet go forward go past the centers in one town.
And he sees he says yeah, to breathe. If you haven't yet recall when you Honiara at this point, or are you You're my best friend, you're gonna leave me in jeopardy and he said, the greatest Angel, he sees ya, Allah, he couldn't be mean makonnen Manu.
We each have a known position.
I can't go where you are about to go.
So the prophets I send them goes forward. After all he went through and the sadnesses and grief. Allah subhana wa Taala talks to him directly and gives him a gift. He gives him 50 prayers
55 zero prayers.
The prophecy center receives this gift with happiness. I got a gift from Allah. Now everything from Arusha has been revealed into the world into the real bring down the revelation and gives it to the Prophet except for Salah.
It was given as a gift to the prophets
to raise his spirits. He was calling this journey to see what he saw and to come directly in front of Allah subhana wa tada with no intercessor no angel in between them direct communication. He was given this gift.
The Rosatom descends and Mousavi Salaam and the sixth heaven asked him
what happened he says, I've been given 50 prayers, he says, Go back. That's too much. I've dealt with burning in your people can't handle 50 prayers, imagine having to pray every 20 to 25 minutes a photo of the prayer
to be difficult. Go back, the president goes back and forth until it was reduced to five when he came back down. When Sally Synopsys go back. I have experienced your people can't handle it. The Prophet says that I'm saying I am shy from my Lord to go back and ask him for a reduction. But the musante said I'm speak the truth.
To people pray five times a day he spoke the truth. Many people, many Muslims don't
know. Now, the positive comes back no brothers and sisters, you have to understand something that when you are given again, the way in which it is given is different. It gives a different connotation. You know, I if I went home to my mother and I gave her flowers,
she will appreciate it.
But if I go home, and I at nighttime, and I clean the house and make a speaking span, and I put the powers right in the center of the kitchen, and I bring some chocolate and I put you know I put a card underneath your pillow and I decorate the house and everything when my mother wakes up and I cook breakfast for when she wakes up in the morning she come down and she sees this she would be overwhelmed.
Because the way in which the gift was given was different than just coming home here. Let me hear some flowers.
Allah gave the Prophet this wonderful gift now one, a mother brothers and sisters, if you want to know how easy it is to win the heart of your mother, just wherever you are now tonight, just FedEx I mean not FedEx what edible arrangements or whatever, send her some flowers or some food or whatever it is. She will be pouring forth with two brothers who are married and single sisters who are single, this is a way to get the free money to get married.
And then the other is Mr. Jarvis answer
subhana wa This is how they cherish this gift. Brother This is gonna be ask you this. How do we cherish our Salah? A gift to us from none other than Allah subhana wa
do we look when we have to break a habit that it's a task? Or we do do we look at it as Yeah, well I'm about to experience this gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala
how do we perceive our Salah
now, I'm sharing all this with you brothers and sisters, because the prophets I said that he says, Well Judy, let's put her up to Amy for
that the coolness of my eyes has been made in the prayers. You know what that means? You don't want the desert when you're walking in the desert is hot. You know whenever when I got off the plane in Mecca, and Jeddah, you walk off the plane and it literally feels like you're walking into a heater. Because the wind is blowing in your face is so hot. Imagine walking in the desert with hot air and sand Your eyes are burning with heats and stinging. And then you find some cool water and you wash your face. The coolness that you would feel if then that is poor or too high. That is the sweetness that you taste. The process of saying this is what he tastes and experiences every time he prays.
This is what he experiences. Now brothers and sisters.
This wasn't just the process tell them to sahab understood for now was the gift and one of the battles against the tribe of Judah. And they said when the Muslims praise God, they said man, if we attacked them when they were praying, we would have defeated them.
So one day perhaps or we're gonna attack them. But you know, they said they said in the house attacking him for Latin. He had to either he means that the prayer is going to come to the father and I saw that they love more than their own children.
They love more than their own children. Again, brothers and sisters. My question to you is do we love our prayer
there was no time
As we take a break now and we're gonna have the next the rest of the day is going to be dedicated to how we can experience Salah to the point that we love it to the point that we love it more than we love our own children just like the Sahaba
and I will end with this analogy, brothers and sisters. For the guys especially we like to play sports football You know, this morning betters are playing, playing cricket, when I came in soccer, whatever basketball, whatever it is, we like to play. What's interesting is that we can play basketball for two hours. Plus, we're sweaty, we're hot, we're tired, we're sore, but we keep on playing. Why?
Because we enjoy it. You're even guarding somebody who's covered in sweat, and you're putting your right up on him guarding him. He smells bad and everything. But you enjoy every minute of it. Why? Because you're playing basketball.
Playing football sisters, when you're exercising, go to the gym, and you're exercising maybe I don't know if you enjoy cardiovascular as much. But the point being you do something that's difficult and hard and you're sweating and you're sore, but you still enjoy it. But then when you go home and your mom says wash the dishes, you're like yeah, I love
I have to spend 30 seconds to watch three schools. It's like more difficult than like climbing the mountain mountain at Mount Everest is like, just watching a spoon is like like a mountain. Why?
Why is two hours of basketball easy, but 30 seconds of washing the dishes hard
because of one's perspective and enjoyment in the two actions.
If you enjoy cricket, if you enjoy football, if you enjoy basketball, you can do even if you're tired and you're hurt and you're hungry and whatever, you'll keep playing.
But if you have to wash the dishes
30 seconds is
a form of Chinese torture.
Our perspective, so shout out brothers and sisters, the rest of the program today is dedicated to letting us understand and experience. We want to talk about the end of today. We want to our outlook on sa B like our outlook is on sports, or whatever it is that you enjoy doing. You could spend hours in prayer three hours in prayer and he will say yeah, a lot It was two shorts soltana but end of the program we hope to experience that
