00:01:12--> 00:01:15

The answer is Jenna.

00:01:16--> 00:01:20

What do you achieve by following the lifestyle of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam,

00:01:22--> 00:01:37

you reach a loss of Hannah wadada pullin kontum to help buena la have a beer owning your eboracum of law. Allah says if you want to reach me, then Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the avenue

00:01:38--> 00:01:44

one cannot reach a law without Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:01:45--> 00:01:51

Today I want to discuss the importance of studying the seer of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.

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

Firstly, the word Sierra means to walk to travel to journey to traverse.

00:02:03--> 00:02:31

It means to walk in the footsteps of Mohammed Salah lohani you send them when we say Sierra to nebby or Sierra to Rasulullah sallallahu send them we are referring to a person walking into the footsteps of Mohammed Salah lohani send them studying his biography, studying his life as a leader studying his life as a husband, studying his life as a father, and many other roles that he fulfilled in this world.

00:02:34--> 00:02:46

law called Colonel comfy rose food in law he was swattin hacer una, Allah says in the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there is an ideal example for you

00:02:47--> 00:02:48

a point of reflection,

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

who's presenting this model

00:02:55--> 00:02:59

who's presenting the life of Rasulullah sallallahu.

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

It is presented by Rob Bula mean a loss of handle data, which means it's complete. Its comprehensive, which means that there is no other life, more nobler, more perfect than the life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, because had they been any life more nobler than the life of Rasulullah, Allah would have presented to the world it is a mercy of Allah, that he presented the life of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam to mankind. So Allah is saying, I am presenting to you a life which I am pleased with, alive, which I have accepted in my court, a life which I'm 100% certain is the means of success for humanity at large. The life of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. So who's

00:03:54--> 00:04:09

presenting the Sierra? It is a law. That means it's vetted by a law, it's checked by a law, there is no blemishes, there's no flaws, there's no mistakes, because the law is presenting it a lot.

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

The first question that anybody asked,

00:04:14--> 00:04:15

Who has given you the reference?

00:04:17--> 00:04:32

What's the point of reference? Who's the person behind this? And here we are saying a law is presenting the sort of loss of democracy, there should be no doubt within any believers mind that there's any life mono blood in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu.

00:04:33--> 00:04:47

And in order to understand the value of Syrah, and in order to understand the impact of seer on mankind, one needs to study the situation of the world prior to Islam.

00:04:49--> 00:04:56

Before sort of law, civil law, Islam came to this world, Isola salatu salam was sent down to humanity

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

and the gap between Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam

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

In Isola, salatu salam is known as zemon will factor on

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

a period which the world did not see any Nabhi for 600 years,

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

there was no Navy in the world. Can you imagine how much of chaos was

00:05:19--> 00:05:23

the state of lawlessness, the state of oppression

00:05:24--> 00:05:38

there was no concept of rights just to understand the situation of the world. I share with you the narration of Jaffa Tayyar rodeo Walter Lange. He is summoned in the court of Najafi

00:05:39--> 00:05:46

and the ever singing King asks john for the low tide angle. Tell me what is Islam about

00:05:47--> 00:05:51

and I want you to reflect on the picture he paints for the king.

00:05:53--> 00:06:08

He is telling the king where humanity was, where humanity is, and where success lies. And so he says a Johann Malik couldn't come and Elijah Hillier. Now Buddha snam we're not.

00:06:09--> 00:06:09

00:06:11--> 00:06:21

00:06:23--> 00:06:33

There was no concept of righteousness is all now boodle us now we used to worship idols. We used to make them in the morning and worship them later on.

00:06:35--> 00:06:38

Without couldn't make that we used to eat of carcasses found on the road.

00:06:40--> 00:06:40

We're not

00:06:41--> 00:06:44

00:06:59--> 00:07:28

the strong one amongst us oppress the weak ones amongst us. He is painting a picture for the king. He's telling the king where humanity was gripped in the darkness of Jamia gripped by the shackles of ignorance, no concept of righteousness for kuna Allah delic Hector Botha wahoo, Elena rasuna, Mina, we were in this darkness when a law sent to us Mohammed Salah lohani.

00:07:29--> 00:07:38

Now the fullness of who was seated or who a man who was who he sent a noble man from amongst our tribe.

00:07:39--> 00:07:44

We knew him from before we can bear testimony to his truthful nature.

00:07:46--> 00:08:17

And when this man became an OB, he called us towards Islam. And he said for Donna, you know why the law and he told us to believe in one a law. So it's painting the picture for the king where they were now is drawing the attention of the king way Mohammed silverball Islam fits in and how he saves humanity. He says, Oh King, Mohammed sallallahu Sallam was raised amongst us. And the first message he gave us was of tawheed. He said we should only worship one a law.

00:08:18--> 00:08:24

And then he goes on to say what Marana BC to kill Hades. What other in Amana? Was

00:08:25--> 00:08:30

was silica Rahim said oh King and then he taught us of Allah.

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

He told us to speak the truth.

00:08:34--> 00:09:10

At a time when people are speaking lies. He said okay. We should always speak the truth at any moment in our life. He told us to be trustworthy in all our duties. He told us to be kind to our neighbors. He told us to join family ties. When a Hannah and Fillmore Sunnah were acclimated in the team. He told us to keep the chest 80 of women at hand. He told us to respect women. He told us not to usurp the rights of the orphans. When a hand are needed for Hush, and oh king, he stopped us from obscenity.

00:09:12--> 00:09:17

He took us out from darkness. And he brought us to Seattle Mr. Key

00:09:19--> 00:09:59

Natasha denona bk Hey, Janet Kara's de la semilla netcast. O ke he took us out of darkness. And he brought us to a diet and he brought us to the strict path. We now started respecting our women folk, where women were regarded as mere commodities in the Arab society. The Quran speaks of this. When a man passed away. His wife would come down inheritance to the eldest son, and if the mother was not the biological mother of the son, he had the option of marrying her and he even had the option of restraining her from getting married to anyone else.

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

Islam came. Whether 10 Gifu, Monica akumina Nisa to not marry the women, your father's in

00:10:09--> 00:10:12

a love for humanity, the dignity of woman.

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

A woman had no right to inherit from the state.

00:10:20--> 00:10:24

A man could divorce women as many times as he wanted.

00:10:26--> 00:10:31

And he could take her back as many times he wanted, even though he gave it the law. She had no right.

00:10:33--> 00:10:50

A man could marry as many women as possible. And then Islam came to the rescue. And Allah subhanaw taala taught the oma to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam the dignity of a woman. When the Sahaba comes to the Prophet of Allah, Who should I be trying to? He said your mother?

00:10:52--> 00:11:04

Is that Olivia fella who should I be kind to? He said again your mother and the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam was asked for the third time, who should I be talking to? And again, he replied, your mother of

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

Islam gave dignity to women.

00:11:09--> 00:11:20

At a time when the Arabs found it as an insult to become a father of a daughter. To the extent Quran says that they would bury the daughters alive out of shame.

00:11:21--> 00:12:05

Allah says what even more on the day of the AMA, we will hold those fathers responsible and ask them do to which some of this Muslim child in this Muslim girl you bury their life. So brothers understand where humanity was. And woo brought humanity back on the straight path. It was the Sierra and the life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, yet through Allah him, he will use the key him where you are living will be terrible hikmah Allah says Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam came down what the ideal example, what the Sierra? What the noble life and he reformed the ways of people. He gave dignity to women.

00:12:06--> 00:12:17

He gave dignity to laborers, he gave dignity to slaves, he gave dignity to workers, and he reformed society on every front above.

00:12:19--> 00:12:40

So there is a great need brothers to study the life of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam made a female, adult to child, businessmen or normal person, scholar or non scholar, every person needs to study the life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and study what kind of person he was. How much do we know of the Prophet set of bodies?

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

How much do I know of his night?

00:12:47--> 00:12:49

How much do I know of his day?

00:12:51--> 00:13:43

How much do I know of his interactions? How much do I know of his characteristics? How much do I know of his mannerisms? How did he eat? How did he sleep? How did he walk? How did he talk? How did he interact with people? How much do I know? And may Allah reward the Sahaba do Long Island image mine for the preserve the seer of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and they passed it down to the Ummah, Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, it is the right of every child to be introduced to Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. It is an individual responsibility of the parent and the collective responsibility of the community to educate its children. With regards to the life of Muhammad

00:13:43--> 00:13:54

Sallallahu Sallam as a father, I need to ask myself, how much have I spoken to my children of the life of pursuit of loss of loss? It's a point of reflection.

00:13:56--> 00:14:12

And is an example for every person who studies the life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, whether he's a father, with his husband, with his brother, with his the leader or whether he is an ordinary person, every person will find guidance in a life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.

00:14:13--> 00:14:24

If a person is involved in the field of Dawa, he needs to learn from the era of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam as to how to present the message of Islam to others.

00:14:25--> 00:14:47

And he needs to learn from the Syrah. How did the Prophet have a lot of those people who rejected his message? What was his response? How did the people of time respond to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and how did he respond to them? A di was involved in the effort of Dawa needs to learn that from the sphere of a sort of loss or loss.

00:14:48--> 00:14:54

A father needs to learn from the seer of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam as to how to be a father.

00:14:56--> 00:15:00

A brother needs to learn from the seer of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam as to how to be

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

A brother

00:15:02--> 00:15:07

and look at the life of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam complete from every angle.

00:15:09--> 00:15:15

A man comes into the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Parma, Arabi Yun fabella Masjid

00:15:16--> 00:15:36

a bedroom comes University and he starts urinating in the house of Allah Masjid nabawi sallallahu sallam, no ordinary mosquito, the Sahaba furious immediately they want to get hold of the person, the prophet of Allah said Tao, Tao. Leave him, leave him, let him finish urinating.

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

We talking about mosquito Nebo he said Aloha, he said a minute.

00:15:42--> 00:15:43

No Ordinary mosquito,

00:15:45--> 00:15:59

the second holiest site in Islam after mccutchan, mocha Rama, the man is urinating in the house of a law. The Sahaba are furious, and the Prophet of Allah is saying, leave him, let him finish what he's doing.

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

When the men finishes,

00:16:03--> 00:16:22

the prophet of Allah calls him, sit him down and speak to him with the law speaks to him with so much of modesty, that he wins the person over a lot. There is poor leadership qualities, where he does not lose the person and he rectifies the situation also about

00:16:24--> 00:16:30

a man is caught drinking is brought in the company of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and is left.

00:16:31--> 00:16:46

He leaves the gathering. After a few days, he comes back for the same punishment. He's left for the second time for drinking. He leaves the company of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. After a few days, he comes back.

00:16:47--> 00:16:53

And this narration is mentioned in Bukhari and Muslim. So he's left for the third time.

00:16:54--> 00:17:06

And as is exiting together in another Sahabi remarks, made the curse of a love young this person, how many times he's punished for the same action and yet doesn't change his ways.

00:17:07--> 00:17:11

The profit of a loss of law ism became angry

00:17:12--> 00:17:25

for the hero was Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. And he got so angry, so furious, that the complexion of his face changed. And he said How dare you find out who you will work?

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

For he loves a bla

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

bla

00:17:32--> 00:17:53

bla today we take the job of Allah subhanaw taala and we send people to join them now this man is going to handle there is no hope for you, the prophet of a law stop this companion from cursing a man who was drinking alcohol. And after carrying out the punishment, he tells the Sahaba to not curse him, for he loves a law and his results and

00:17:56--> 00:18:03

as a leader you need to learn from the seal of law as to how to deal with people in your community and people under you.

00:18:05--> 00:18:14

This is called leadership qualities. Obama has a lot on who was mocking Iran. He was not a Muslim.

00:18:15--> 00:18:20

Look at the qualities Allah has blessed Mohammed Surat is amazing.

00:18:21--> 00:18:32

abou Mahara is brought to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam the Prophet of Allah tells him Oh abou Mahavira What a beautiful voice of Allah has given you.

00:18:33--> 00:18:39

What a palatable voice Allah has given you. He spoke to him in a kind manner.

00:18:40--> 00:18:58

When he left together in our School of Law, I said, a shadow under the law. Well, a shadow under Mohammed Abu rasuluh. I bear witness that Allah is there is none worthy of worship besides the law. How did he win a booma hora. How, through

00:18:59--> 00:19:21

through leadership qualities, we need to study the life of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam as a businessman, what kind of life he led. What made her ijarah the amount on her proposed to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. It was his business acumen. It was the qualities that he had. He was successful in the business ventures that he took on.

00:19:22--> 00:19:32

He brought on double profit. But besides that, what compelled hijo de la de la to put a proposal to Mohammed Salah What was it?

00:19:34--> 00:19:35

He was not an A B at that time.

00:19:37--> 00:19:59

But look at his life. It was his integrity. It was his trustworthiness. It was his Amana. It was his truthfulness. It compelled and by the way, her deja vu voted on ha prior to this received many proposals, which he declined. As a businessman I need to ask myself am I following this

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

refers to the loss of

00:20:02--> 00:20:06

a third euro sodoku. I mean, mine Nabina was

00:20:07--> 00:20:22

the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, a truthful businessmen will be what the MBR salatu salam and Yama I need to ask myself in my business. Am I emulating the life of Rasulullah sallallahu

00:20:24--> 00:21:03

in my house as a husband, am I following the footsteps of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, every man needs to ask themselves this question. What kind of man was he at home? I shall be allowed. Alana was asked the telephone the life of Rasulullah What kind of man is in the house? And she said he was an ordinary person like every other person, the narration of Buhari, he would move the animal he would mend his own shoes. He would clean the house and you'd be kind towards us. I need to ask myself as a husband, am I following Mohammed Salah Holly's

00:21:05--> 00:21:11

the narration in Abu Dawood, Rasulullah sallallahu cinnamon eyeshadow, the alota are racing,

00:21:12--> 00:21:15

literally racing, and she wins in.

00:21:17--> 00:21:28

Some time later, they had another race and the profitable one, huh? And he said to Elijah teletubby, now we equal I beat you and you beat me also.

00:21:29--> 00:21:33

This is the greatest man running with his wife.

00:21:34--> 00:21:41

The greatest man, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam racing with his wife. I shot of the water.

00:21:42--> 00:22:03

He did not see below his dignity. Today our positions at work makes it difficult for us to be kind to the people under us. I Sharia law Thailand says we used to drink from the same utensil. When I would drink and sip on the class. He would see where did I put my lips, he would look for the same place and drink from the same place.

00:22:05--> 00:22:14

She says the Prophet of Allah was so kind, so crying, he would put a morsel of food in our mouth with his own hands. When last did I do this?

00:22:17--> 00:23:03

When last did I do this? For others I need to study and you need to study the life of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, every home should have literature that covers the life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, I'm going to ask you to buy one very important book. And that is similar to Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It's a fantastic book written on the life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, from birth to death cover in all spheres of his life. What I mentioned to you today, and you need to study the life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, when may you turn in our soul with the Hello Janet into gentlemen Danielle and her. Whoever follows the life of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam for

00:23:03--> 00:23:21

him is Jenna for Allah has mentioned this in the Quran. Every person sitting here needs to educate himself needs to educate his children needs to educate the people around them. The world needs to know about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we are the ambassadors of this religion.

00:23:22--> 00:23:29

How can we keep the life of Rasulullah sallallahu away from the world? It should be within our own lives.

00:23:30--> 00:24:03

And the second book I'm going to ask you to purchase is by Hakeem after SAP Rahim Allah tala, the 100 students of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in his booklet Hakeem sub speech of how the Prophet of Allah set how he ate, how he conversed with people how he entered the bathroom, how he left the bathroom. Let's try to bring our life the student of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam as far as eating as far as dressing as far as interacting with people. Let's take the life of Rasulullah and slowly bring it into our life also.

00:24:04--> 00:24:25

It's a transformational CRR May Allah grant us the deepest of love for Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam May we hold the Sahaba in high esteem in higher appearance in sha Allah, and may we educate our children with regards to the life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, I ended up with this incident Sahaba say

00:24:26--> 00:24:34

we use to teach our children the life of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam just as how we would teach him.

00:24:37--> 00:24:51

We would teach our children the life of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam just as how you teach them Quran, there is the path that we need to work towards insha Allah or Marlena Allah
