00:00:04--> 00:00:28

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam, who is the best of mankind is the leader of mankind. The prophet SAW Selim said NSE duality Adam, I am the master of human, all human beings, and I am the first one to be resurrected or to come out of his grave and I am the one who is going to open

00:00:29--> 00:00:44

or start the accountability to intercede for Allah Allah Allah to stop the accountability and I am the one who is going to open the gates of paradise for the entire humanity, they will follow me.

00:00:45--> 00:00:58

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us unto Mousavi own our Luna, you will come in the beginning of the idea of resurrection. You are the former's You are the first people to enter the agenda.

00:01:00--> 00:01:03

And the word Allah Allah say to us can

00:01:05--> 00:01:20

reject leanness You are the best nation ever raised to mankind, you enjoying the good and forbidden evil and believe in Allah, Allah Allah. Why are we the best of nations? Is it because

00:01:22--> 00:01:52

we have a different we have a special color? No, look hamdulillah we have black people, white people, Asians, Arabs, everywhere. So why are we the best people because we are believing in Allah, Allah, Allah. And we are following the message. The aterna message, the message that Allah Allah, Allah chose to be the best of messages, the eternal message, the message that was sent to Mohammed Salah lawyers. Now

00:01:54--> 00:02:00

this oma which should be the best of nations should have the best individuals.

00:02:01--> 00:02:03

What do we mean by that?

00:02:04--> 00:02:13

You my brother, you my sister, everyone here should feel that he should be the best. Really?

00:02:14--> 00:02:28

Why not? He shouldn't be because the oma who builds the oma, the oma is nothing but the individuals if the individuals are failing, if the individuals are bad, the whole amount will be bad. That's why

00:02:29--> 00:02:41

when, during the camp of the prophets, I seldom or even after the time of the prophets, I send them we have individuals like aboubaker like Omar lifers, man, like I live in a pile, like Malia, Sophia, and like Abdullah

00:02:42--> 00:02:53

Abdullah, he's like, I'm the boss, like like, like, we have ladies like eyeshadow, the Allahu taala and her like hafsa. Like other great ladies,

00:02:54--> 00:02:57

the oma was the best of nations,

00:02:58--> 00:03:30

even after the death of the prophet SAW them during the Romanian period, even after that period, we have the likes of Abu hanifa Rahim Allah, Allah and his his students, Abu Hassan, Mohammed, Hassan Abu Youssef, we have the likes of Imam Malik. We have the likes of Imam Shafi, the likes of Imam Ahmed, even the leaders of the Ummah, we have the likes of Harun al Rashid, we have the likes of Jaffa, we have the likes of all the other halifa.

00:03:31--> 00:03:35

So that's why the oma was the best of nations.

00:03:36--> 00:03:46

At one point, my dear brothers and sisters, at one point we, as Muslims, we were controlling most of the earth.

00:03:48--> 00:04:12

At one point, there was no as they as many historian said, that history in you the Romanian period and Trump at one point, and it was the largest ever country known in history, even it used to control an area bigger than the area controlled by the Roman Empire.

00:04:16--> 00:04:28

And when the individuals My dear respected brothers and sisters, when they lose this passion to be the best individuals, then what will happen?

00:04:29--> 00:04:32

We will see the likes of Aleppo.

00:04:33--> 00:04:35

We will see the likes of

00:04:36--> 00:05:00

the Rohingya being killed, and no one bothered about them. Yeah, how many 1000 How many? Maybe 10,000. How many? Maybe 100,000. The whole world is watching because Muslims themselves are not so powerful. They are not so great. Then they are not respected. They don't deserve to be

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

be respected. As simple as that. If you respect yourself, then you will be respected. My dear brothers and sisters, if Islam is not in control, then what will happen? As they say, might? Yeah, we'll be right.

00:05:22--> 00:05:32

It is not that right? Is might. So the one who has power, he will be right. If you don't have power, even if you are right, you are wrong.

00:05:34--> 00:06:26

My dear respected brothers and sisters, this spirit has to be passed from the older generation to the younger generation. We need to teach this to our children. They need to be inspired. That Yes, it is true that maybe now we are attacked, everyone is calling us Muslims. Everyone is calling us names. Yes, ISIS, terrorist, Qaeda, etc. And many of the younger children, they might feel intimidated, and they hide their identity and go to school, they are confronted by a number of questions. What did Islam provide for humanity? Who are your Muslims, you are nothing look at what's happening to you in different parts of the world. And we need to empower them, we need to tell them

00:06:26--> 00:06:55

that what is happening to us is just happening to us on a temporary basis. Look at our history since the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. When the prophet SAW Selim was sent 1400 years ago, since that time, we as Muslims, we were the best of nations, we were either the main superpower in the world, or one of the superpowers in the world.

00:06:57--> 00:07:53

The abassi period was the superpower, it ended in the middle of the seventh century 656, then the hereafter fell down, then it was followed by the automatically refer it to remained as their main superpower, or one of the main superpowers for six more centuries. So during the time of Islam, which is 1400 years ago, which is 1400 years, Muslims were their superpower for 1200 years, a minimum, which means they were either that superpower or one of the main superpowers for 80% of the time, more than 80% of the time. Our children they need to know this. They need to learn this might be respected brothers and sisters, we can talk a lot about that. Yeah, we can. It is enjoyable to

00:07:53--> 00:08:07

talk about your legacy, your history, and how rich Your father was, how great your father was, and you just live by that and you deceive yourself, as they say, you don't achieve anything.

00:08:09--> 00:08:14

However, everyone should ask himself. What is he doing now?

00:08:16--> 00:08:30

Is he going to say Oh, my ancestors were the best of people. I was my father was my grandfather. My Yeah, but what about you now? First of all, knowing history, gives confidence to the person

00:08:32--> 00:08:53

gives confidence to the person and in his prayers the person to live as a great person. That's why Subhana Allah, Allah Allah Allah says kontum Hara Medina Bridgette Lina, Allah Allah Allah says waka Delica, Ghana Mata masala takuna Shahada alumnus on the Day of Resurrection. Yes, we will testify

00:08:54--> 00:09:06

before mankind and we will be telling Ya Allah we testify that these prophets pass the message to their nations, who are we to testify because we are the best of people?

00:09:07--> 00:09:11

Allah, Allah, Allah is inspiring us by these words.

00:09:13--> 00:09:19

Allah Allah, Allah is in inspiring us by telling us who our Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem is.

00:09:20--> 00:09:25

So, let us talk about ourselves. My dear brothers and sisters,

00:09:26--> 00:09:28

one of the key qualities

00:09:29--> 00:09:39

of the successful people who will build successful nations, powerful nations is that those individuals

00:09:41--> 00:09:41

live

00:09:43--> 00:09:44

for a vision.

00:09:46--> 00:09:48

Live for something

00:09:49--> 00:09:54

and the noble that vision they are living for.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

They will be noble, the noble the individuals who will be

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

The more

00:10:02--> 00:10:11

this vision is inspiring, the more those people will be inspired by this vision, and the better they will be.

00:10:12--> 00:10:15

If you have, if you are living for a low vision,

00:10:17--> 00:10:18

then you will be a low person.

00:10:20--> 00:10:25

If you are living for a higher aim, you will be a high person.

00:10:27--> 00:10:27

The

00:10:29--> 00:10:54

homeless person, many of them can do a lot. But this is what this is the maximum they are living for is just to eat that today to live, maybe he or she will have their dog and instead of them lowering their hands to beg people go work, go do something go No, I am happy like this. Do you want to live like this?

00:11:56--> 00:12:12

The young people are our future. And that was the habit of the prophets. I send them that was the son of the prophets I send them. He spoke to everyone and he put more focus on the young people at the party. Even Omar

00:19:01--> 00:19:06

His grandfather, Abdullah polyp was the chief of Orion.

00:19:07--> 00:19:16

No one was allowed to sit on his throne, which was a simple not acceptable. Mohamed Salalah

00:19:17--> 00:19:21

in order for him to be inspired, oh, Mohammed.

00:19:22--> 00:19:24

This is your position.

00:19:26--> 00:19:31

From a very young age, at a very young age, they were building al Qaeda.

00:19:32--> 00:19:36

live for something that is big.

00:25:13--> 00:25:15

00:25:17--> 00:25:28

Live for something is small life will be so depressing. Whatever you get from the dunya will not give you happiness.

Before I end,

00:25:52--> 00:25:52

many

00:25:54--> 00:26:29

sometimes I'm invited to lectures, I asked people, how many of you my dear brothers and sisters memorize the Quran? If I asked you now it is not suitable for the hotbar to raise our hands. Very few people memorize the Quran. I asked them how many of you wish if they memorize the Quran? Most of the people raise their hands. I asked them I asked you do you know some people who memorize the Quran? They say yes. What is the difference between you and the person who memorized the Quran?

00:26:30--> 00:26:38

Do they have more hands? Do they have two heads? Do are they more rich than you? In fact, many of them may may be poorer than you.

00:26:40--> 00:26:42

What is the difference? They had the vision.

00:26:43--> 00:26:52

One of their achievements that they want to achieve one of their goals they want to achieve is to memorize the Quran. They were committed, they achieved it.

00:26:56--> 00:27:04

This is a simple example. Do it My dear brothers and sisters, all of you. Even the old people have the vision

00:27:06--> 00:27:25

to memorize the Quran, at least consider it as one of your aims in this life. We ask Allah Allah Allah to make us successful people. We ask Allah Allah Allah to inspire us to have vision for our life. We ask Allah Allah Allah to forgive us for our shortcomings.
