Wala termo, tuna Illa. To Muslim on all praises due to Allah subhanaw taala who knows what we reveal and knows what we conceal, and even knows what

00:01:03--> 00:01:44

the animals feel. We thank him we praise Him and on him we have reliance, it is to him you only turn to for true guidance. We asked him to send his peace, his blessings, His mercy on the best of human beings and Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, on whom we praise until the very end of our days. And we asked him for steadfastness, guidance, mercy and to never lead us astray and for him to save us on Judgement Day. My brothers and sisters this month, this blessed month, in which the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born a month in which he migrated from Mecca to Medina, a month in which he also passed to the highest companionship Salallahu, alayhi, wasallam and

00:01:44--> 00:02:28

a month, which also symbolic of many is important events that happened throughout Islamic history. It's important for us to continuously revive the meaning of the second part of the testimony of faith. When we say La ilaha IL Allah and Muhammad is Rasool Allah. Muhammad Rasul Allah, what does that mean in our lives? And how do we actualize and apply it in our day to day life is important for us to continuously revive. And especially in a month when if I were to ask you to remember to give me some of your fond memories of the closest and most beloved people to you, the grandmother that would cook you a certain foods that you can still taste, or the grandfather that would make dua for

00:02:28--> 00:02:42

you, and you were raised on their lap, or a mother or father that you had fond memories with of their care, and their love and their affection. Some of you even mentioning this will have tears in your eyes.

00:02:43--> 00:03:15

I want to remind us that unabIe Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam to us is more beloved, than the father that took care of us and held us our hand and walked distances until he would deliver us to School work is a whole day and night and come to our beds, crying over the fact that he couldn't see us or the mother that held us affectionately with her love and care, and prayed for us more than even herself.

00:03:16--> 00:03:43

And never imagined Maasai salam means to us more than that. And maybe Muhammad sai salam means to us more than the children we love more than anything in this life. And what does it mean to follow Muhammad salallahu Alaihe Salam, it's something that needs to be continuously revived in our hearts. Until you live it and you feel that experience yourself. Genuinely. It's not something someone can tell you. Can I teach you how to love your mother?

00:03:45--> 00:03:54

Can I teach you how to love your father? Can I teach you how to love your children? How can someone teach you that love if it's not ingrained in your heart?

00:03:55--> 00:04:11

How can you pass that on to your loved ones and your children that attachment we have to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that is why the way to do it is to remember and reflect of what the prophesy said Emma has done for us and what the prophesy selama will do for us.

00:04:12--> 00:04:44

And what the prophesy seldom used to think about us over and is concerned for us. Those things when you see the genuine love of someone for you, you begin to change you begin to have an attachment in the connection which we are direly and desperately in need of in America today. Our youth and those Muslims who are not here today, who are distant from even the masjid on Juma are being a concern is because this part is missing in their life, this actual connection

00:04:45--> 00:04:52

to a physical manifestation. Allah subhanho wa Taala sent us the application of revelation this is missing in people's lives.

00:04:54--> 00:05:00

And when we insist on the ritualistic nature of Islam, without showing them this love without showing

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

give them this connection without showing them this genuineness.

00:05:04--> 00:05:48

And this concern and history and love of knowing who this person was and what he has done for you, then of course, you're going to take it for granted. Of course, you're not going to have an actual relationship with it. It's very natural, when those things do not exist, and that's why my brothers and sisters, I remind you with a hadith, in this jawaan of what the prophesy Salah will go through for us on the Day of Jasmine per chance, it will make us understand and increase our appreciation of this of this blessed man, some allies, and they'll be some a lot to set them aside. When the day of resurrection comes. People will surf with each other like waves. They will come to Adam and us and

00:05:48--> 00:06:00

say to him, intercede for us with your Lord, save us from what we're going through billions and billions of humanity running to whom who do you run for when you're in trouble? Your mother, your father,

00:06:01--> 00:06:03

to save you helped me.

00:06:04--> 00:06:19

No matter what happens, even if you have trouble with your spouse, and you're going to a failed relationship, who do you always turn to at the end of the day, your father and your mother and that's the case with all of humanity. We will be running towards our father and our mother, Adam and how and when we run towards him.

00:06:21--> 00:07:05

On that day, even our solder will not be able to help us. He will say I'm not fit for that. Go to Ibrahim. He is the close friend the Helene of a rough man, the close friend and companion of the Most Merciful so they will go to a Rocky Mount Eastern and all of humanity will say intercede for us and He will say I am also not fit for that. Go to Musa he is the one whom Allah subhanaw taala spoke directly to so they will go to Musa Ali Salaam. They will say your Karim Allah you're the one that Allah subhanaw taala spoke to. You're the one that Allah subhanaw taala departed the seas defied physics for you're the one that Allah subhanaw taala chose to be one of the chosen messengers and

00:07:05--> 00:07:16

Musa alayhis salam says it's not for me, I am not fit for that. Go Teresa for he is a soul created by Allah subhanaw taala by him personally.

00:07:17--> 00:07:24

And when we go to Isa allihies Salaam and humanity goes to each ally, Sudan and mercy, the Messiah.

00:07:26--> 00:07:29

East alley Sam himself will say I am not fit for that.

00:07:30--> 00:07:33

And then all of humanity

00:07:35--> 00:08:14

will turn to only one. The prophesy sentiment says then I will ask my lord for permission, and he will give me permission and he will conspire with me words of praise, which I will praise him words I did not know how to do before and he will say oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, raise your head from prostration speak and intercede and intercession will be given to you ask and you will be given and it will be accepted. And he will say go and bring forth everyone and whose hearts there is the weight of a mustard seed or an atom

00:08:15--> 00:08:57

and they will be given intercession and maybe some Allah who it was said Sallam on that day when everyone in humanity cares only for their own soul and their own self, including prophets. Say Neff see Nevsky myself myself and maybe sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I will be the only one that will be caring for all of us saying Almighty Almighty my ummah, my alma Annalisa Allahu alayhi wa sallam is quoted as saying that these types of intercessions are many in number. But the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was given a choice. And the hadith is narrated authentically by Abdullah of Myanmar, and the synergy of Nabil awesome. He says that the Prophet SAW said the Messiah, I had a choice between the

00:08:57--> 00:09:06

intercession and only half of my nation entering paradise. I was given a choice half of your nation will enter paradise or you will get to shut out.

00:09:08--> 00:09:15

So I chose intercession, as it is more expansive than half of the unmet being entered into paradise.

00:09:17--> 00:09:45

Do you think it is for the righteous and pure? No, rather it is for the sinners and those who consider themselves impure. And the besides Salama said that minor intercession, the vast majority of it will be CSRT Lea held her Vironment Almighty, the vast majority of my intercession are for those in my OMA who committed major sins. I want you to understand the love of the prophesy settlement to such an extent.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

When Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed him with this the prophesy Salah was given the good glad tidings that he will, his own mother will be taken care of. So

00:10:00--> 00:10:16

He was given the glad tidings as well that every time they send sell off on the prophesy salon, Allah will give them 10 rewards and protections and preservations more so just by sending one sell off and the prophets I said, You know what the prophets I did, he did says it to Shakur

00:10:17--> 00:10:43

said It's sugar when you prostrate thankfulness out of Allah subhanaw taala how many of us have done that recently, anyway, right. And the prophets I said, What was insensitive for such a long time? Then why there'll be a low time was sitting there waiting and he found the prophesy Simon sujood he says, London went on to who and who had, I thought he died on a software program, because how long he was in frustration, thinking of Allah for the station for the station.

00:10:44--> 00:10:49

Simply what? Because Allah subhanaw taala says, I will take care of your mind.

00:10:50--> 00:11:18

I want you to imagine that the worst sins you've done in your life. And I want you to think that even if Allah takes us accountable for one of them, we're gone, we're destroyed. If Allah treats us with His justice, none of us are going to survive. And that's why if I am he said, that it's a Mercy of Allah, that even the most righteous of this OMA commit sins, because if they did not commit sins, their arrogance would make them end up in hell.

00:11:20--> 00:11:31

The arrogance of the righteous would make them end up in hell, but their sins keep them humble to Allah subhanaw taala and everyone who's righteous, they're the most fearful of Allah over their sins.

00:11:32--> 00:11:54

And they are the most merciful to the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam over there's an abuse of Allah Azza wa sallam. On that day, when he was doing such that for such a long, more, I love the Allah no thought he was he was dead sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he raised his head, and he said, Alhamdulillah that Allah subhanaw taala has given me safety in my ummah.

00:11:57--> 00:12:10

And the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is sometimes if you think about it, cared more about us than we care about ourselves. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said one day when I shut on the lawn,

00:12:11--> 00:12:16

she asked the prophesy sent him a question that probably every woman has asked her husband do you make dua for me?

00:12:18--> 00:12:21

Do you make dua for me? No. Do you make personal dua for me?

00:12:22--> 00:12:32

Not the general drawing Allah helped the OMA No, no, I want my name. I want you my birthday, even if I want it specialize. And the prophesy said, Be Abby who will owe me some Allah.

00:12:33--> 00:12:57

He said, Of course I make dua for you, I say Oh Allah, forgive the sins of Aisha that she's done, and forgive the sins of Aisha that she will ever do. Our mother, I shall the law and out of sheer happiness, I want to just look at the affection of Azula. So I set him up with his wife, you know, all those years in the 60s? How many of us don't even have that affection, with our own with our own wives?

00:12:58--> 00:13:02

That love that's there, that care, that acknowledgement?

00:13:03--> 00:13:43

And the reason why Saddam had in his 60s and he said to her Of course I shall I say ALLAH forgive your sins that you've done in the sins that you will do. And I shall the Alana was so happy that she fell in the lap of the prophets I sent him in tears and and happiness. And the prophesy said no surprises. Yeah, too soon. Yeah, Russia. Does this make you happy? And I shall our mother will. The Lord has said Yeah, rasool Allah, not just the husband. You're not just the husband. But how can the dua of the Prophet solo or their cinema not make me happy? And then our heavy valets thoughts will sit on it. He says to her, your eyes shut if this makes you happy. Know that I say this dua for all

00:13:43--> 00:13:48

of my own mind, every single one of my soju sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

How many of us make dua with companionship of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in our city? Every single sujood Allah has asked me what have you been?

00:14:03--> 00:14:34

How many of us are those statements out of genuine companionship and missing him that he thought was that I'm like he did. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. One day in a gathering in Medina. He says, I miss my brothers and the companions that are not feeling happy. Seattle said Allah will your brothers. And the prophesy said Allah says no, you're my companions. The brothers are those who will come after me. And I haven't seen them in authentic narration. He says about them. They're the ones that they are the most beloved to me.

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

The Companions ask why. And the prophesy sentiment says they would have given their wealth, their property, your Tesla's your, your cryptocurrency, your everything in order to see me and spend time with me and they can't. So that's why I love them the most because they have that love in their hearts. Do we have that love my brothers and sisters? Because that love is transformative. If it's real, transformative, meaning you weigh it again

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

So what you're doing in your life and you're like, why is this worth it?

00:15:03--> 00:15:14

Well, is this worth it? Is this worth giving up companionship with Rasul? Allah sighs is this sin worth it? And you weigh it against love and you say no yeah Allah my love for us was awesome that means more to me.

00:15:15--> 00:15:22

You give up your ego over some ridiculous grudge, this is not worth it. The Allah says that the prophesy salah

00:15:24--> 00:15:29

is the one that will be with those who mend the relationships that have been cut off.

00:15:31--> 00:15:48

So what is this this worth it this ego trip that I'm having? No, because the love of us who lost I sent him is greater. Is it worth it not to apologize when I'm wrong? No, it's not worth it because the prophets I send them a says the best of you in my nation are the best to your families, and I'm the best to my family.

00:15:50--> 00:16:20

This is what it means to be to have a transformative love brothers. Because I can guarantee you you can give all the statements of love to somebody. If you don't show it. They're going to finally say where is it? Where's the actions? Allah finally confirmed to her bone Allah for Toby Rooney, you will come along with Phillip say all Muhammad sigh Selma to your people, your nation. If you love Allah, follow me. Allah will love you and forgive your sins. May Allah azza wa jal grant us the love of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam

00:16:21--> 00:16:25

called the suffering loading of suffering the hobo hemocyanin Muslim

00:16:37--> 00:16:45

so 100 He lost a lot of salam ala Rasulillah what it was, like you said about the same give you all my brothers, my sisters, to actualize this transformative love,

00:16:46--> 00:16:59

of course, starts with something very basic all of us know, which is to know the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, okay, love someone you don't know, no matter what you say. If you have not gone through the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you definitely there'll be a oh, well as the time.

00:17:00--> 00:17:38

Podcasts are plenty. Books are plenty, dedicate some time in your life. But also this transfers to more than I just listened to the podcast and I'm done with it. But as my teacher should have my dada shed in Medina, he said, the sealer is not something you read once and you finish you read it until it becomes part of your blood 1000 times if 1000 authors, many people until it mixes in the moments that you go through. You remember in analogize life events of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Artesia. May Allah protect our children, if you lose a child. You remember the statement of the prophets I said that this child will wait for you at the gates of Jannah it comes like this

00:17:38--> 00:17:59

naturally why? Because as if you're remembering a loved one, and if that's not happening, if the prophesy said it was not the first thing on your mind, then you haven't read the profit twice. And I'm sorry. It's not information. It's not a class. It's a distort it's a constitution of life to know law school law son's life and to continuously do it until you pass away.

00:18:01--> 00:18:12

And that's why one of my teachers Rama Talal Kenny, 93 year old scholar of Hadith from Burma, the last of his generation, the students of Sheikh Hasina al Madani Rahim Allah

00:18:13--> 00:18:16

when I visited him in the hospital a few days before he passed away.

00:18:17--> 00:18:35

This was the most humbling man I've ever met in my life. I said, What can we do for you besides dua, he says, I appreciate that you you read Hadith to me to enliven the life of the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad Seisen. I learned from you 93 years old, he passed away three days after that and the 17th of Ramadan is buried in the bhakti will last because he lived his life.

00:18:36--> 00:19:11

So ALLAH blessed to live, to live that life for him in the in the Buddha's luck in the grave and inshallah in the Hereafter, we have to understand that as well. Second component, my brothers and sisters, is that there has to be enlivened with your families as well. You can't say I'm tired from work all day I've been working. This is called men in Islam. Learn to think outside the Arctic and build manual others do not destroy your good and righteousness by reminding people of your favours and harming people with your words. You can't say that I'm tired all day. You know what that's doing? It's an MC that's negating the righteousness you've done. That's an obligation You have no

00:19:11--> 00:19:32

right to complain. I've been busy all day cooking and cleaning and taking care that's your obligation sister. You can't use that against your children or your husband. You have to put your smile on you have to take care of something more important than your job which is your children. Put on that face. Spend time with them reading sila read real solid Hain one Hadith a day discussing with your family how we can implement it.

00:19:34--> 00:19:43

This is how we live in the Sunnah of the Prophet is not to settle. And lastly, my brothers and sisters, the intercession of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is had by constantly remember

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

Salawat I feel is not done enough by us Salawat this is like something you do maybe we're singing machine or very rarely, but this is something we need to revive to just spend moments in Salawat Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad Ali Muhammad masala Italia Ibrahim Alon radicalism

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

101 I'm hungry. I'm about to tell him until the end or simply Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Muhammad, we're learning from it. That's it. Along with ciliata. Mohammed is seeing this over and over again. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to a companion, so I dedicate all of my dua to you or Salawat. And Sam, what will Allah do for me? He says that Allah will forgive you your sins and take care of your worries.

00:20:24--> 00:20:47

forgive your sins, take care of your words, any worry that you have allowed to take care of one of my teachers, this man has possibly 25 million viewers of people who watched his his Dallas shows. And he had some heart condition he was taken to a Muslim country. After that surgery they had on his heart. This nurse he said you would recognize if she's Muslim, other than knowing that this a Muslim country

00:20:49--> 00:21:26

was taking care of him and all of a sudden his heart telemetry dropped, meaning this is a very serious situation, you might have another surgery or possibly die. You know what this woman said? May Allah bless her intergender she said to him, suddenly Alan Nebia Salah sensor on the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam. So he said, I started saying salaam, the prophets I said the doctors rushing code, whatever. And when they get to him, they look at the monitor and they say what's wrong? Wait, why did you call us everything was normal. I have friends they said that you know this was this hadith has always been said to me my life but two things that I've done I swear to you I have seen

00:21:27--> 00:22:04

the effect of which in ways I can never imagine how Allah has solved my problems and dealt with my worries. Quran in the mornings and daily for on the mornings As salam o Allah and the prophets I send him as much as I can. May Allah allow us to be of those people that send Salawat as much as we can get up that Aloma is that Islam and Muslim Allah who must require the most Latina frequently McCann, Allah Muhammad in Michigan Oxfam in the lives is so high and it's a millennial along with a solid definition of Sciarra datamine Allahu wa Muslim if equally McCann Allah must flow Muslim if you understand what Phil Yemen was Historia was in Iraq of the Burma while he can be a volume in our
