salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. handily layer below me or salat wa salam O Allah Shafi mousseline se Ed, now Mohammed was early he was certainly he as your main dear brothers and sisters. So Jude is an Arabic term. And it means in English prostration, which is the act of lying, stretch out on the ground
with a face down as a sign of or as an act of worship, or as a sign of respect as a sign of admiration, or submission.
And Muslims performed this visual this prostration on a regular basis, they do it as an act of worship as an act of worship. So, this prostration is a major part of the daily prayers that Muslims offer on a regular basis.
However, Muslims believe that no one no one
deserves this act of worship except Allah, God, the Creator of the heavens and earth, the only one who deserves who deserves this type of worship is the one who beautifully designed this universe with all its galaxies and planets and stars, and everything in it, including humans themselves.
We believe that he's the one who will make everyone and everything die at a certain time in the future. And he's the one who will bring everyone to account on a day called the Day of Resurrection.
So no one deserves this kind of worship, except Allah, God, the Creator of the heavens and earth, no one including prophets and messengers. This is something that was clear in the divine law that was given to Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam peace upon him did not make these rules, they were given to him by Allah subhanho wa Taala.
They were given to him by God, the Creator of the heavens in the earth, and he himself, Prophet Mohammed had to submit to these rules.
However, during the time of Adam, peace be upon him, Adam, the first human in this universe,
the first human who lived on this earth with his wife, how were Eve. During his time, this kind of prostration was allowed was permissible as a sign of respect, as a sign of a greeting as a form of salutation.
Actually, Allah subhanho wa Taala himself the Creator of the heavens into Earth, commanded the angels who prostrate themselves in front before Adam VSP upon him. But it was an act as a sign of respect, an act of a greeting a form of salutation, it was not a form of worship, because God will never ask one of his creation, to worship another creation.
So they were born and the angel submitted and the and the, the angels prostrating themselves before Adam peace be upon him. When doing so we're showing obedience obedience to Allah subhanaw taala, the creator and also at the same time showing respect to add a peace be upon him.
This kind of this form of salutation, this prostration was also permissible in the religion, of use of peace be upon him use of the son of Yaqoob. In English, Joseph, the son of Jacob, in the Bible, Joseph, the son of Jacob, this kind of prostration was permissible during their time as a sign of respect, as a form of sun salutation we know in the Quran, that the parents of Prophet Yusuf Joseph, peace be upon him, and his have brothers, all of them prostrated themselves before us of peace be upon him.
So Muslims call it when the family they did this when the family was reunited in Egypt. So Muslim scholars believe that his parents and his half brothers actually prostrated themselves to Allah, he proceeded to Allah to their Creator thanking him for the bounty of bringing the family together, the whole family together. Some other Muslim scholars said actually the prostrated to use of peace be upon him, but it was a sign of respect. It was an act of respect and it was a form of salutation. It was not an act of worship. They said because a true messenger to Prophet will never ask someone else. Human to prostrate to another human, other than Allah.
in any case, this kind of these two forms of prostration whether it is for worship or for respect, whether it is an act of worship or a form of salutation both these two forms of prostrations and not permissible and not permissible in Islam. In the final message sent to humanity through Prophet Muhammad peace be upon these two forms of raw sation and not permissible.
The first one was as a set was permissible in the religion of Adam, and some other prophets like us have been in this final message, final message that was given to Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, his two forms of prostrations are not permissible.
And it is interesting to know that three three companions, three
people from the companions of the Prophet the people who live with Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam, some of his students, like why the blue Jebel was a scholar, he was learning from the Prophet sallallahu. So these three people, all of them tried to treat prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam this way, some of them prostrated themselves before him, and some of them they were asking for this permission, ask him to give them permission to prostrate themselves before him, what was his reaction? What what what kind of guidance that he offered to them to his companions regarding this issue, we will know this through some stories I will tell you about these
stories now in this in this session. first story I will say it in Arabic it is found in soon and ebene, manager and some other sources of Hadith. I will say it in Arabic and then translate the Hadith in English. So Rama Abdullah abio faucon Lemma Padma Mohan Mina Shem says surgery Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for calling my head Mr. Fuji and the visa Lola while he was sending behind the suit for Panama hair they will have pilot it to Sherm for one fact to whom he assumed le SRP fatty him.

I'm the one of the ofa club and he hadn't had a file for one for 11 fc Mohammed Nbd led to a dealer or to have to lie harder to adapt associate an inherited Hadith. Abdullah the opha are the Allahu psbs May Allah be pleased with him said one more either punishable a famous Companion of the Prophet. May Allah be pleased with him on the long run came from a sham which is greater Syria. He went to a sham to greater Syria to for a visit. And he came back what happened he prostrated to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he prostrated himself before the prophet of Islam. So he Adi salat wa salam peace be upon him. The Prophet said, What is this Omar? He was surprised. It didn't
happen before. He said What is this? He wants an explanation. He said I went to a sham, greater Syria. And so then prostrating so people prostrating themselves to their, before their bishops and patricians.
And I thought, and I wanted to do this for you. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said do not do it. He said, If I were if it was permissible, if I were to command anyone, to prostrate to anyone else other than Allah, I would have commanded women to prostrate to their husbands. And he said by the one in whose hand is my soul, which means Ally's swearing by the name of Allah, swearing by the name of God by the one whose hand in whose hand is my soul. No woman can fulfill her duties towards Allah towards her creator, until she fulfills her duties towards her husband. This Hadith as I said, is found in Sahih nomatter and found in some other sources like utterly watery and some
other sources of relief
Now in a different story found in tafsir of the kefir, this Hadeeth the chain of the narration of this hadith is not very strong. But there's the the content, or the story the meaning of this hadith is correct. And the Sandman Latvian nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again I will say it in Arabic translated in English and cell malnati and ADSL Allah Allah wa sallam FIBA the Fiji as in Medina t maganda Sal moto Hadith in Islam fossasia Delhi Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Barfi Jason Medina and a body to kill Medina LA to Viva La to kill Medina.

heavy Valley his Salatu was Salam. Let us usually send man once you delete highy levy layer mood Caribou Coffee moshannon Hassan. So Sandman in fallacy the person who was a new Muslim at the time, when he meant the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in some streets of Medina. He prostrated himself before the Prophet Ali site was set out who told him
did not prostrate to me awesome man and pro se to the living one, the living one any the God, the Creator of the heavens in the earth, Allah and frost say to the living one who does not die, as they said, the chain of narration of this heavy is not very strong, but it is the meaning is correct. And it is reinforced obviously, by the other two stories. I mentioned the first story and this is the second and I mentioned I will mention now the third story. The third companion was a suicide or the Allah annual this hadith is found in Sahih abhi dellwood. So I will say it again in Arabic and basically Sal Khan at a tool Hirata for I to whom yes you do not lemurs Zoo ban in Morocco Bonnie

in some Allahu Allah wa sallam What if I asked you to leave Bashar in Valletta final lagoon to Amir and I had an ESU that he hadn't let Mr. Tunisia and yes you should know as well as you hinder the Masha Allah Allahu la him and he hidden them in and help them move and how do you come upon to Mozu FISA he
fi subido Hadith say so by room side reported, may Allah be pleased with him, he reported that I want to add here and here is an area in all the era in the middle of Iraq nowadays.
And saw them he saw people prostrating themselves before a safe trip of their say Trump is a provincial governor in in ancient Persia. They use the they used to use this term at that time safe trip in English. So he said so people prostrating themselves before a safe trip of theirs. So I said this is what was the thinking of, I suppose that he thought about it. I said, he said to himself, he said the Messenger of Allah has more right? To prostration made before him, the Messenger of God, peace be upon him has more right to prostration made before him. That was his thinking that was his analysis.
He said when he came to the Prophet, he came back to Medina to the city of Medina and he met the prophet of Islam. He wanted to ask permission, he wanted him to give him permission so he can prostrate himself before him. He said I went to a hayride, he told the Prophet peace be upon him I want to adhere and so them so people prostrating themselves before a safe trip of theirs. But you have more rights almost as your of God to have proceeding to have people prostrating themselves before you. You have more right? That was the analysis as I said, Of bisogno sad or the alarm, may Allah be pleased with him. So, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam then said, Do not do that. Do not do
it. Do not prostrate
Eat yourself in front of any human being. He said if and if he is very important. Yeah, if it was permissible, it is not permissible. But if it was permissible if I were to commend anyone to make prostration before, before and another, I would command women to prostrate themselves before their husbands, because of the special right upon them, given to their husbands by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Again, this hadith is in soon an everyday old and it is an authentic hadith. Now the question, why would for those who believe that Mohammed is a false prophet? Why would a false prophet refuse this kind of treatment, this kind of respect, this kind of honor given to him by some
of his own followers, when people claim that they are receiving a divine message from God when we claim that they are prophets and messengers, when they falsely claim when they falsely claim they want what we want prestige, they want honor, they want a status in the community, they want power.
And this companions here are trying themselves to treat it's from them, he did not command them, to prostrate themselves before him. They are the one who volunteered, and they wanted to prostrate themselves before the Prophet. And yet he refused. I said, this is not permissible, you cannot do it, the only one who deserves this kind of, you know, this act of worship, or these prostration is the Creator of the heavens and earth. So the only conclusion, the only conclusion from this kind of stories is that Mohammed peace be upon him was a true messenger of God, intelligent people. This is an invitation to anyone who is intelligent, whether he's Muslim or a non Muslim, to contemplate this
kind of stories.
And by the way, as a side note here, people who like to be confused
people who like to bring confusion to their minds, they will neglect this strong proof that Mohammed Salalah while he was in a peace be upon him was a true messenger of God. And he refused that people prostrate themselves before him, and dwell on his statement about a husband and wife relationship.
And they will say, of course, that this is a proof that Islam encourages discrimination against women, and they will neglect other statements made by prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanding men to take care of their wives and to protect the rights of their wives. So Islam is a religion of balance is a religion of moderation. But there are many people who do what they are not willing to, to think about this to to, you know, to give some thought about this beauty. The beauty of this religion, including some of those who were born Muslims, are handled a layer behind amin was Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
