so now I didn't want to lower the car to how various well smilla hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala YD wa sallahu wa sallam at the simek villa. We think Allah subhana wa tada and we praise Him all praises due to a loss penalty Allah Who knows what we reveal, and knows what we conceal, and even knows what the animals feel. We thank Him, we praise Him and upon Him we have reliance because it is only to him we turn to for true guidance. And we asked him to send his peace, his blessings, His mercy, upon the best of human beings and prophets. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

And we asked him for steadfastness, guidance, mercy, and to never lead us astray, and for him to save us on judgment day. And that's a great blessing to be speaking here. And the prophets of Allah has had him his message, it is not an easy matter. It's actually something very heavy. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said that whoever comes to this message, my message is seeking to teach good or to learn good, then he will have the rank of a person who struggles and

00:05:37--> 00:06:11

fights for the sake of our last panel data. This is a great reward. And in reality, this is one of the most amazing things about this age of technology, where Subhanallah you're sitting at home and gaining this reward a charlatan if we're sincere, we ask a lot of content except from us. So today's topic is something that is very, very dear to me. And it is something that I studied in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I found that you can study the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, through an amazing lens called his prophetic prayers, the prayers that the prophets Allah sent him used to make. And one of the most amazing things about the prophets, I said

00:06:11--> 00:06:55

him himself, the prophet himself was the answer of a DA of one of his forefathers. What does that mean? Well, first and foremost, we have to understand that the prophets I said of himself didn't just come up from nowhere. Rather, he was a chain in a long chain of prophets and messengers that came, and he's the final link in this chain. All of the profits starting from Adam, to Noah, to Idris to all of these prophets, and Ibrahim and moose and he said, he said, I'm Jimmy and the prophet SAW Selim is the final link to this chain of prophets, and most importantly, the prophets. I said, Emma said that the prophets are all brothers with different mothers, meaning they are related

00:06:55--> 00:07:38

to one another. And it is no obviously surprised that the prophets I said him himself came from the lineage of his married Elisa, and is married and Islam, obviously, we all know was the son of none other than the Prophet Ibrahim Alayhi Salam himself. And Ibrahim as he said, I mean, it's married and he said, were prophets just like Ebola, his other son is how it is set up. And from his half came here, I hope and from Jaco came up with it, he said, um, and also came musalla his setup. So the bunny is foil came from Yaqoob who came from his hammock, but it's nice that I'm his progeny had only one profit, and that profit was Muhammad Sallallahu. So Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was the father of

00:07:38--> 00:08:17

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is something very beautiful and very powerful, that we understand that the prophets Allah said Emma came in this long lineage of prophets and messengers, and one of the things that we wanted to focus on today is to understand the beauty of this prophet, the beauty of this of evil, he had a setup and his struggle that he had in fulfilling the commandments of a Lost Planet Allah, Allah subhanaw taala talks about a blocking that he said them and what he went through in order to fulfill the commandments of a last pancetta. So I want you to pay attention with me. Where Rahim Allah said I'm said, When Allah Subhana Allah described to him

00:08:17--> 00:09:03

way the patella Ibrahim Abu Bakar imagined Fatima una carta in Niger educated nassima call a woman giulietti call Allah Yana La Jolla volume in and the prophets why Selim was told mentioned Omaha MSI Selim, when able to he was tried by his Lord with commands and he fulfilled all of them and a loss of habitat. I said, Indeed, I will make you a leader of the people. And Ibrahim said and what about all of my descendants and a loss of habitat? I said my covenant does not include those who do wrong and who commit evil, meaning that the prophethood and this covenant will only be given to the righteous. He then goes on to make a number of dua, and among those there are some very beautiful do

00:09:03--> 00:09:47

I blow him out? He said I make when he's completed, building the cabinet, a lot of parents that have commands and to build the cabinet. This was one of his tests, and it will tell him out he said when he's building the Kava, the holiest place on earth. He says Allah Subhana Allah describes way the authorial hemos kawari the middle Beatty what is merito robina Taco Bell Mina in Naka and to Samuel and mentioned Omaha Salem, when he was raising the foundations of the house and with him is married. And they were saying, Oh our Lord accept this from us indeed, or the hearing in the knowing and he continues to make dua and he says, I've been watching mostly maynila woman Doria Tina Mata Muslim

00:09:47--> 00:10:00

Allah Arina manasi Kenna what tilbyr Elena in NACA entered to level him, he continues to make their own says, Oh our Lord and make us Muslims in submission to you and from our descendants.

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

A Muslim nation in submission to you and show us our rights and accept our repentance indeed you are the Accepting of repentance and the merciful now I want you to pay attention to something even more beautiful than next door ah that Abraham la said that makes is one of the most beautiful and most powerful tools in human history. It was a father's prayer for his children, a father's prayer for humanity and a father's prayer for the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Ibrahim it said I'm says, I've been at war but I see him Rasulullah Minh home yet to do either. Chico Lima, who Makita will take metta or use a key him in anthologies of hacking. He says, Oh our Lord, send to them these people, a

00:10:41--> 00:11:01

messenger from among them, who will recite to them your verses, and teach them the book and purify them, there is no doubt you are the Almighty, the all wise now, this is very, very powerful. Because what was it about him? He said, I'm making up for it for him. And he said, I'm made do I in essence, for the prophets

00:11:03--> 00:11:48

and messengers that would come and teach them and bring about the revelation to humanity and teach them the book and purify them and give them the understanding of how to apply it. And Allah subhanaw taala will be the most honorable and the most wise he would know who to who would who would it be? Then Allah subhanho wa Taala. Later on, this was a source of Valhalla and so the island Milan olara zoa gel describes to us who that messenger would be and what to do if you bought him out. He said I would be and he says, follow along with me. Allah Subhana Allah says, Allah, La Cadman Allahu la mina is that is Effie Masuda, Minh and forcing him to do either Hema Yachty he will use a key him

00:11:48--> 00:12:31

while you earn the more Makita will take matter what he can do for you about any movie, that God has been truly gracious to the believers and favor them by sending them a messenger from among their own, to recite his revelations to them, to purify them and to teach them the Scripture and wisdom before that they weren't clear astray and an error. Allah subhana wa tada told Ibrahim and he said that he will send this messenger and he revealed in the Quran that that messenger is Mohammed Salah alojado, sending the light to all of humanity, the one that would take every single person out of the darkness of disbelief to the light of faith. And one of the beautiful things about this verse,

00:12:31--> 00:13:12

If you notice, the arrival of Abraham and he said I'm set to them. When Abraham said to a las panatela Oh our Lord sent to them a messenger from among them, okay, we understood that, who will recite to them from your verses and teach them the book and purify them there is no doubt you're the mighty the wise, the way Allah subhanho wa Taala accepted this surah is he reorganized the dura Ibrahim the way he answered it. He said I will send them a messenger from among their own, who will recite the revelations and will purify them will purify them, and then teach them the Scripture and its wisdom. And wisdom Here comes from the word on hikma, which means its application and then take

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

much to put something in its right place in its right time and the right way in the right format. That's what Heiko means Wadler, O'Shea fee mechanic to put something in its right place. So the hikma here is the Sunnah, which is the application of the revelation, the application of the hold on and the prophets, I send them an example. So Allah rewarded the Dr. Ibrahim, and he said here, he will recite his revelations, and then purify them, whereas Ibrahim asked, teach them the book and then purify them, which shows us something very important brothers and sisters, that this revelation, this example, the example in the son of the Prophet, sallAllahu, Alayhi, wasallam, is an

00:13:51--> 00:14:28

example that is not only for us to implement and understand the revelation of what to do, what not to do. But most importantly, for us, when we understand this revelation, we understand that it will purify us, this is what the whole on came for, for humanity, to purify them and to bring them closer to a las panatela their Creator to bring them a step closer to understanding the role of the Divine in each one of our lives. This is what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with, and one of the most beautiful things about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is one day he was gathered right here where we are right now in Medina and unmeasured the number one with some of his

00:14:28--> 00:15:00

To be a no huddle Gemini known about the

00:15:04--> 00:15:43

And he, I am the vision of my mother who saw that a light came out from her illuminating the places of bustle, which is an airlock and in the land of Sham the castles and in Syria and Palestine. And another narration, the prophets I send them I said, in this exact headache,

00:15:43--> 00:16:24

I am a law servant as is written in the mother of the book, meaning unlawfully, my fourth and barely the seal of the prophets, what Adam was still made from clay, and I tell I should tell you the meaning of what mean what it means that I am dead, what to be able to him, I am the answer of the day of the prayer of Ibrahim.

prophets lie Selim what happened after this. And his mother, his mother, said, I used to see in my dream, that there will be light coming from me that would spread through the east and west that would reach all the way to the north, in Syria and Palestine. Light would emanate from all of her until people started to see the trees dreams as well.

And then this person sent her some miss me he Mohammed then name him Mohammed, Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Mohammed Ali Salim which means the one who will be praised all over the world, and the one who will be the one who praises God. Allah subhanho wa Taala the most the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was the answer of the dude of his father Ibrahim it for them. What a beautiful draft. What a powerful dua that Allah subhana wa tada answer. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala

00:17:51--> 00:18:34

mentions to us a very beautiful idea of how to understand our Prophet Allah subhanho wa Taala says Lakota Canada Confucius what he was what he has been a lemon can a yo yo la Whoa, well Yamanaka was a Corolla, Kathy LA. There's certainly no doubt in the Messenger of Allah subhana wa tada the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam an excellent example of Switzerland has center for anyone whose hope is in a law and the last day and who remembers a lot often. I want you to focus on this section right here, where it says a law says he is a swan Hasina. He's an excellent example. Do you know what a swan has no means in Arabic. what's what's it Hassan means in Arabic. The best of examples.

00:18:34--> 00:18:40

kettleby Eva, you say this person is a an example. In being a teacher. You say this woman is an example and being a lawyer. You mentioned a particular field that they're good at and you use the word in Arabic. Cordova. Cordova means good in this particular field. Allah subhanho wa Taala did not say in this verse, that the Prophet is the best Cordova he used another word, he used the word elsewhere. and elsewhere in Arabic means someone that is good and the best in every field. He is the best father. He is the best leader. He is the best parent. He's the best husband, spouse, he is the best one to lead a community at a Salatu was Salam and he is the best human being to walk on this

Part of life. This is the dude. Listen, this is what he was asking Allah subhanaw taala for and that the prophets lie Selim was the response of that era. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was the one who fulfilled that message. And I want you to reflect on this final verse as we end. Remember that the dua was answered, how did Allah subhanaw taala tell the believers, I want us to go back to that verse and reflect on it. Allah subhana wa tada says, and I want you to reflect lefkada men, Allahu Allah, meaning God has been truly gracious to all of us. God has been extremely gracious to all of us. He has given us the prophets of Allah medicine. He has given us Mohammed sallallahu sallam. This

00:20:44--> 00:21:28

is from the blessing and favor of Allah. God has been truly gracious to the believers. Look at the men Allahu Allah, meaning is about FFP him. He sent to us, the prophets, I said, What greatest blessing that we have, that we have the prophets, Allah loves him, he sent to them a messenger from among them, he didn't send us an angel where we couldn't apply.

The Prophet

00:21:28--> 00:22:09

sallallahu Sallam his example is a way to purify this is a way to purify us where you only Mohamed Kitab and to teach us what Allah wanted us to do with the book while hikmah I'll take my here again means what? Putting the book in its right place. It's application of the revelation. What you know Kadam and nephila that it will be, and all of us were indeed astray. misguided if it wasn't for Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, we asked a las panatela to gather us with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us of those who implement this guidance that was brought to us that Ibrahim, they said I made this dua 1000s of years before, but a loss of habitat answered that

00:22:09--> 00:22:44
