Smilla Al Hamdulillah salatu salam ala Rasulillah while Ali he was sabe he woman who Allah Loma Linda Maya and found L on foreigner Bhima and I'm Tina inika Simeon would you would do out Lama Nia will you be coming in Milan for our call Billa Shah and FC Leticia What do I lose my Robin Allah to the Kulu Baba is had eaten our Hublin AMOLED, Ankara inika internal hub, or be strictly surgery wastefully, Omri. What LULAC the Tamil listen, you have all colleges akmola. Here, the MSA,
it was a lot of work, I can see that and organizing things, especially after the COVID where we all got so comfortable in not doing things on site. And now you're back. So I'm sure there was a lot of challenges, and I could see it and I can feel it. And just acknowledge everyone who trusted the MSA to come and attend the conference. And I really ask everyone in this room to really make a sincere dua to every member of the MSA as if they are your own children. Ask them to Allah to ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect them. As he protect his righteous servants. We all need to be protected. There's a lot of tests, there's a lot of tribulations, a lot of temptations outside and to be
focused and dedicated to serve Allah subhanaw taala as a young person, that's something really we need to commend. And we don't want to take it granted. So make sure you everybody in your Salah, especially when we're gonna go in sha Allah for Mahara, that make your salt in your sujood as special prayer or a dua or supplication, to everyone in the MSA for everything they are doing. Is it perfect? No, nothing is perfect, but they did their best to be perfect. And Allah subhanaw taala will as I always say, Allah subhanaw taala reward for the efforts, he doesn't reward for the result. The result is only in his hands.
So this is a topic that I'm sure you have all heard about it a lot, and a lot and a lot. It's I rarely go to any conference or I attend a conference. And there is not a topic about the manners of Roswaal is Salatu was Salam. And the topic was which part of the life of Roswaal is ratusan? That impressed me, or that I want to highlight. And when I was reading the title I was like,
which one is not?
Which part of the life of Rasul Allah is salatu salam when you really read it, not read it? Just okay. I know, I'm just reviewing, when you really read and say which one and you take one incident, one incident one incident, like, let's take one incident with a non Muslim, take an incident with his wife take an incident with somebody he doesn't know, take an incident with his friends. And it's like, which one doesn't impress you. And it doesn't impress you. It has to make you at least say whoa, wow.
And who is he? Or a salatu salam and I think all Muslims all wherever we all share a common law of Torah Sallisaw to sit down and I can speak from the woman's side when we are in the role. When finally we get into the role and all those of you who have been there you know what I'm talking about. And the emotion you see it on the ladies, this is not a faked emotion. It's and there is nothing I mean, when we are in the role, or the woman area, we don't see anything. It's not like the man side we see nothing. We only see just like a white fence and not now we'll humbler it's much less crowded but before it used to be extremely crowded. Still there is these emotions and nothing
stunning and you say to yourself, what is it it's the love we all have Torah Swati Sato Sinha 100 Lahiru Grameen all Muslims are still the same.
But there is one or more than one issue for us Muslims in our relationship with Allah Swati SOT was Ramadan. The last session I was talking to the ladies and I said and I focused on the relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. And now since the topic is what's the relationship with our relationship with Allah, Swati salatu salam love is there. So don't think of Love Love Is there no one can at all question or argue about it. But the question I have to everybody and what I want to share with you is this love is a translated to what
these feelings are translated to what and I'll give you an example in our daily life. Whenever you want to understand something in the deen always think of something in the law in life. And then see. So when you have someone who loves you, young and old parents or students, somebody loves you, what is the sign that this person loves you?
And I would love to hear from anyone. What is the sign that this person really genuinely love you? What is the sign?
That's what I'm looking for.
For what to action, prove prove without a doubt and even sometimes you say what else I want to do to prove it to you.
What is it
sacrifice for that person you give the thing you love for that person. That's one
definitely you trust is not love. I'm talking about love, love, sincere love
Oh obedience you do whatever they tell you.
Sometimes doesn't make sense. But I love them. And look at your parents, with your child, your child coming from the university coming home after six months, right? What is the first thing parents do? The mom is cooking something that child that students your he loves? Because they love it. And you smile and doesn't matter if this takes forever. Right? And the daddy will go and do something because my son or my daughter loves it. The sign
off love is actually obedience. And Allah said this in the Quran. Anyone can give me the verse
call in contempt to hipbone Allah fective your only Your Habib Kamala we all feel lucky, Allahu Allah for all right, say, if you love Allah, follow me. Me is a Swati sought to sinner. And the result you become Allah, Allah will love you. And Allah will forgive you. And Allah is all forgiving, All Merciful. The sign
each one in this room young and old man and a woman brothers and sisters that you love are Swati. Salatu. Salam we live in what's the name of this state?
I know what is the name of the state? Show me. Show Me State. I was talking to my family, my sisters in California and says what? And I said yeah, it's called Show Me State. Why it's called Show Me State. Don't answer me google it. But you will find out. Show me meaning show me.
And I'm so worried about to me. I'm not talking about you. You all are definitely better than me. That's how I saw Ali Salatu was Salam on the day of judgment. And he will say to me, show me
show me your love.
In my book, where is the love that you had for me that you claimed you had for me?
Tabea only follow me. What is follow me mean?
Do something he did. Let's take simple ones. Simple ones he did who can give me one thing you all know about Rasul Allah Sato sir, you will have to read the zero. You will have to listen to long YouTube one thing Roswell is auto surrounded.
Tom, anything comes in your mind. I'm sorry.
Give me act, not a character act.
This is one he used to be described. He used to be described that when he talks to someone, and this this couple of things in his Syrah, and I focus on his daily life that literally astounded me. I was like y'all Allah make me this one. I don't think I can do it. It's very simple. When he was described by the Sahaba, when he talks to someone
they all say he talks to him or her as if there is nobody else in the room.
Give them their all attention. His all attention and his or her Swati Serato. Sir, it doesn't matter who's that person, young or old? famous, rich, poor, speaks the language doesn't speed doesn't matter.
And look at it to us. When we get into a gathering. How do we greet people?
We have categories do you know that?
I know her. She's my friend. Or he's my friend or he's my boss. I will need her. I have something to do with her accordingly.
And some people we don't even pay attention to as if they are nonexisting specially if they are, quote unquote, less than us in my standard.
So number one, number one his relationship with the people around him. I'm not talking about the relationship crusade now boubakeur, the special relationship or we say no more, or the seed Aisha These are special. I'm talking about the joy
Animal. What is the other thing they said about him? When he greets someone? He never, ever was the first one to let his hand goes. And he's a rosary. Salatu Sir, when he agreed, he keeps greeting till that person pulls his hand.
What does that sign off?
He cared about every single person around him, not because they were from orange, or they were in Medina, or because that was the person who will bring hire Tristan, or because this is his friend, or this is his father, for his father in law say Naboo Baca? No, because they were a creation of Allah subhanaw taala.
That's why when he was described and you all know this hadith can hold a whole Quran when he said Aisha was asked how was he? Because they wanted the men wanted to know how was he in his own? They see him outside but how was he at home? You know that dual personality many of us have outside we're perfect when we go to Home Allah knows.
Or when we go to our room we or something and when we are with our family, we are something not here Ali salatu center.
And they asked her say the height has Hadith narrated by say Dieter, who was he? And she said Kiva Cana hollowcore P, Ali Beatty. How was he with his family, meaning his wives. And this is the wife talking about the husband
kind of hollowcore Quran, his manners, his demeanor, his speech, the way he talk, the way he walk, can a hook or Quran
where are we?
If you look at the other person he had daily contact with not a woman, a man
in his house.
Seed not in us.
He was his servant. When he moved to Medina when he migrated to Medina or Swati. Salatu Salam, when he arrived to Medina, the people of Medina they were so happy, everybody gifted him something.
And the mother of Ns say he'd known us was 10 years of age. She grabbed us a unit in us and came to Roswell they sought to ascertain the meaning of I don't have much to give
to welcome you. Take him Yasser Allah and teach him what a gift.
What a gift naturo Swati sought to say ina Anis go and live with the Roswaal a surah. Two of Sarah. He served him for how long who knows?
Some says 10. Some says four zero. And this is what he said. Say you'd notice. Think of the people we deal with, whether they are friends, whether they are our bosses or whether they are under us. And he said hello. I think it's 10 years. I served the Rasul Allah salatu. Salam 10 years, never. He never said to me one time, single time. This is a young boy 10 years of age, how many mistakes he does
think of your children. And he said for 10 years, he never asked me. Why did you do this? And why you didn't do that? That's patient.
When you said patient, absolutely. But in action. Why did you do this? Or why you didn't do that. And that Shahada. This is a testimony of someone in his house afterward. Not when he was alive afterward.
They loved him to the extent so you'd normally would know laughs was asked way later on. When he became the governor of Egypt. They asked him describe him to us. How does he look like how did he look like, tell us how his face was. And you know what? He said? Does anyone know the answer?
We never looked at his face. We could never look at his face.
That's love. And that's what
love, respect and or
a man does not look at the face of a man that that he cannot describe him and they lived around him.
And the famous story which I'm sure some of you when they went to the Najafi and they were Who is this man? And they said the meaning of that when he does will do when he perform his ablution the Sahaba Ron to collect the money the to collect the water from under it
Who was he?
Who was he? And where are we, in our relationship with Him?
Simple question to everybody. What was his sunnah in these days?
What what where are we? Shabbat? What was his sunnah in Shaba?
Fasting, right? When say Eden
or some of news eight came to him and says yo rasool Allah, I've never seen you fasting that much in a month after Ramadan. Why this month? Why Shabbat? What did he say? Daca Sharon yofoto Unharness Boehner Roger Benoit Ramadan, this is a month that people forget about.
Because it comes between Rajab, the the sacred month, and Ramadan, everybody knows Ramadan.
And I wanted to honor this month by fasting.
And he used to fast not all Shabbat, majority of Shabbat.
Where are we? And everybody asked about then the night of the 15th of Shabbat. I can't tell you how many questions I had. At one point I was like, there's nothing else in this Deen other than the night of the 15th of Shabbat. Should we do that? Should we do don't? Is it better? Or is it not better? And I looked at people and I say, why don't you learn about his sunnah.
And do what he did in in Shabbat.
He used to fast and then he said, Well, ha shahada and this is a month where the deeds are presented to Allah.
And I love for my deeds to be presented to Allah and I'm fasting
because our deeds are presented to Allah weekly, actually daily, weekly, monthly, yearly. Do you know that?
Okay, daily, it's presented to Allah subhanaw taala twice the change of the shift time when the angels change, the angels change before Fajr and before Rasul and they go to Allah subhanaw taala than the angels of the night and Allah asked them, How did you see them?
We all have to have a good answer. They just left we just pray docile they just left so that when they go to Allah Allah says had Capo just to my body, what did you see them doing? And they say your Allah we found them praying hamdulillah and the morning was the same thing. And this is the daily presentation. And that is the weekly presentation. And this is on Thursday.
And that's why he fasted it is salatu Sinha because fasting is the most beloved act to Allah subhanaw taala or so Molly on xebia. Fasting is for me, Allah saying this, not us, not even a Roswaal is Autocentre Hadith Guzzi fasting is for me. And I Allah, the Exalted will reward for it, and scholars teaches you the only deed that is not TimesTen. In fact, it's to what it is not TimesTen, who knows them, one is fasting, what is the other one?
Related to fasting,
this patient sober in my office sobre Runa and your home, be Ryrie hisab. The people who practice patient, let alone your struggles to be patient, you will be rewarded and accounted for fasting and being patient. So on Thursday, then you come the monthly the month of Shaba then you come the yearly
our deeds will be presented to Allah
I leave this for you go and learn it.
Go and learn it. This is what he did it. Salatu Assa, he taught us he taught us how much we practice everything. I'm gonna tell you that impressed me.
I'm saying this to myself before I say to you is not about what he did is about to me. Let me read to you this one because I want to read it because I want to give it its due right is when you all know this when he went to the cave of heroin, Jabal unknown, and then he come back and he heard a Quran the angel came to him when he came to his wife.
And I want not only the brothers to think of themselves, but I want the sisters also, if this was the opposite, what will your wife say about you? And what will your husband say about you? And look what she said about and he came you all know as a milanesa Maloney put on cover me cover me and he was telling her the story, and it is an overwhelming story. I can't even imagine. And what did she say to him? Wallahi in Hola Hola, nya, look bye
Law, Allah will never let you down. This is a wife talking to her husband. This is not a prophet yet. She doesn't even know that she took him to. After that she took him to Iraq. But at this point, she doesn't know what's going on. This is a man came to his wife and says, This is what happens to me. I was in the cave. And guess what happened? angel came to me. And then he was telling me this normally, what would we have said?
Really? Are you sure? Is that how it is? See what she said, in Allahu Allah. By Allah, Allah will never let you down. Why? These are the criterias. This I call it, the result is earned. I do. And I get we all wants to get but we don't want to do it. We don't want to put the effort to get the result. So what did he What did she say? She was fighting Nikka Casa del Rahim.

And put these examples. That's who he was before he became a prophet. I'm gonna re emphasize the point he was not a prophet yet. alayhi salatu salam, and what stands for all Muslim?
And you stand up for injustice.
