00:01:34--> 00:01:35

Amano

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

in Nakuru,

00:01:44--> 00:02:16

all praises due to a loss of data, 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. And we seek his aid, mercy and assistance and is only to him we asked for his guidance. And we asked him to send His mercy, his blessings and his peace upon the best of human beings and prophets, Mohammed bin Abdullah salatu salam,

00:02:17--> 00:02:30

upon whom we praise until the very end of our days, and we asked the last panatela for steadfastness, and guidance, and to never lead us astray. And for him to save us on judgment day.

00:02:31--> 00:02:34

The IRS that I recited for you

00:02:35--> 00:02:41

were verses that our Creator las panatela described a people

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

with a legacy that humanity had never seen before. a legacy that no one in history could even come close to replicate. But they can hope to follow and aspire to live in their example. Allah subhana wa Tada. And these verses, describe the people of Medina.

00:03:05--> 00:03:09

Those who are called even the unsought, those helpers,

00:03:10--> 00:03:13

who lived a legacy of absolute selflessness

00:03:15--> 00:03:31

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam imparted this legacy, and discipline these people and raise them in a legacy that we're missing today and seeing a lack of humanity, and how we deal with each other as human beings.

00:03:32--> 00:03:55

You see one of the biggest problems in our society, in Birmingham, in Britain, in Europe, in America, in Africa, in Syria and Palestine, in Afghanistan, and India, all over the world, east and west. The human being is concerned about himself,

00:03:57--> 00:04:00

my money, my food, my life over years.

00:04:02--> 00:04:05

And there is no sacrifice for the greater good.

00:04:06--> 00:04:09

Because we're living a purposeless existence.

00:04:11--> 00:04:15

There has been no point in history

00:04:16--> 00:04:19

where the amount of selflessness

00:04:20--> 00:04:21

and materialism

00:04:23--> 00:04:30

has overruled every type of love and companionship among humanity much less than amongst Muslims.

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

To the extent

00:04:33--> 00:04:36

that entire relationships are judged by this

00:04:39--> 00:04:45

that your love for another is based on if this thing is called Android or its apple.

00:04:48--> 00:04:49

Human beings

00:04:50--> 00:04:57

have made a point of difference over materialism and the new idols of today

00:04:59--> 00:04:59

are selfish.

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

materialism, narcissism,

00:05:04--> 00:05:08

bigotry, racism, preference,

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

rather than

00:05:12--> 00:05:15

and lat minute and the idols of correlation.

00:05:18--> 00:05:28

And how did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam deal with this society that he lived in the society of Mecca in a time in Arabia,

00:05:29--> 00:05:32

where it was full of the darkness of ignorance.

00:05:33--> 00:05:37

And not only that, but before the advent of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:05:38--> 00:05:45

It was an advent of ignorance throughout the world here in Britain, Anglo Saxon tribes

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

fought with each other overland.

00:05:49--> 00:05:59

entire villages were raised, people were killed, because one warring tribe wanted power over another. In Europe.

00:06:01--> 00:06:08

There was a constant war among Christian factions, over arion Christians, and Roman Catholics,

00:06:10--> 00:06:12

the Roman Emperor,

00:06:13--> 00:06:29

He even went to the extent of banning academic institutions like the Plato's Academy, and almost abolishing the legacy of Greek and Roman philosophy, which ironically, would be revived by none other than the Muslims. Many 100 years later.

00:06:32--> 00:06:42

There was a queen in China by the name of queen who, who came into power and would kill sporadically. People who simply loved each other. She just tested people who loved each other.

00:06:44--> 00:06:52

And 250 years of civil war existed in China, before the advent of the prophets always in the world was simply in ignorance.

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

And what Allah subhanaw taala do, he sent the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:07:01--> 00:07:03

to revive humanity

00:07:04--> 00:07:27

with his legacy, with his example, with the teaching that revived humanity through men before him, like Adam, Allah, he said, I'm new Holly Salaam, and Ibrahim alayhis salam and Suleiman and Moosa and recently he said on all of the prophets were sent to revive humanity with that example, in that prophetic message.

00:07:29--> 00:07:33

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thought over his society.

00:07:35--> 00:07:44

And the message that Allah Subhana, Allah gave them was to serve humanity, to bring them back

00:07:45--> 00:07:52

to why they were created, to bring them back to the reason, what will give them their humanity,

00:07:53--> 00:07:55

which is to yearn for the divine,

00:07:56--> 00:08:01

to fill the emptiness, with yearning for our last panel data,

00:08:02--> 00:08:24

to understand your relationship, on this earth, through your relationship with your Creator, everything else falls into place. And not only that, it wasn't a monk religion, where we sit in religious temples, and simply focus on a on a relationship with the creator and the spiritual sense. Rather, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came

00:08:26--> 00:08:41

to bring balance to society by removing all types of oppression, and injustice, and through that, Allah subhana wa tada said, that this will revive humanity. The Iota recited were about these people.

00:08:43--> 00:08:46

This golden legacy, which seems many, many

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

years away from us.

00:08:50--> 00:09:07

But it's because we don't know that legacy. And we don't follow that legacy. And don't worry, we don't remind each other, each other about this legacy. This legacy was the Medina and legacy. The legacy of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he left behind, in the city of Medina,

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

called the legacy of selflessness. Last prophets Allah said about these people, those immigrants who left their wealth, left their families left everything.

00:09:20--> 00:09:23

And they migrated to Medina

00:09:25--> 00:09:34

who driven from their homes and possessions? They only did it to seek God's favor and his approval. Imagine

00:09:36--> 00:09:37

if I told you today what you

00:09:38--> 00:09:41

know, Najib, you're the Second Amendment right now.

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

Rather than as

00:09:44--> 00:09:49

you're leaving Birmingham in the next half an hour. You're not allowed a phone call.

00:09:50--> 00:09:52

And I'm taking you to Bristol.

00:09:53--> 00:09:54

How do you feel?

00:09:56--> 00:09:56

You don't know.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

You just you don't know what to say.

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

If you were to be ejected from the law, the land that you lived in, and you grew up in,

00:10:06--> 00:10:11

and you were taking to a faraway land like Bristol, where there's nothing except

00:10:12--> 00:10:17

farmland, trees, beautiful scenery I came from Bristol, I like it.

00:10:19--> 00:10:23

Many of us would feel we don't know what to feel. This is all I've known

00:10:24--> 00:10:25

Birmingham.

00:10:28--> 00:10:42

And this is exactly how the companions in Mecca felt. They left everything, their property, their belongings, their loved ones, the prophets why Selim said last night that I mentioned, they did this only for God's approval and his love.

00:10:44--> 00:10:47

And those who helped them in Medina, the unsolved

00:10:49--> 00:10:52

these are the ones who are true with the last panatela.

00:10:53--> 00:11:01

The people in Medina were already firmly established in their homes, and rooted in their faith. They did what what made them special.

00:11:02--> 00:11:07

There are lots of parents that have mentioned them in the Quran. And we recite this verse until the day of judgment.

00:11:09--> 00:11:10

They were those

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

who showed preference for others over themselves.

00:11:18--> 00:11:27

And there were those who had no desire in their hearts for the material that other people had.

00:11:29--> 00:11:34

And they preferred others, even if they were in need.

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

And they were poor.

00:11:37--> 00:11:42

And they themselves could have used the help, but they preferred another human being.

00:11:47--> 00:12:20

And those who came after them, you and I, a lot directing us now. Those who come after them, you and I, what do they do they make dua for them, saying Oh our Lord, forgive me, forgive us our sins, and the sins of these brothers, who believed before us, and let us not have any malice or content in our hearts, towards those who believe Oh our Lord, You are truly compassionate and merciful. Allah subhana wa tada gave us this golden example.

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

In just these two is

00:12:24--> 00:12:33

of what it means to have an a legacy that will carry on and revive humanity. This legacy started in Mecca when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:12:35--> 00:12:49

would welcome any Muslim that accepted Islam. To the extent that the lowest of society when they said La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah was treated as an equal. And they saw an Ethiopian slave by the name of Bilal

00:12:51--> 00:12:57

become one of the most love, beloved person to them. Below the Allahu Akbar,

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

a man that was

00:13:00--> 00:13:13

being punished by his master for just saying, I believe in God, and that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is His Messenger, his master may have been he would put him on a hot rock.

00:13:14--> 00:13:19

And he would put another rock that weighs more than his body on top of his chest

00:13:20--> 00:13:27

until it burned him. And he would squeeze it and say, leave that faith that you claim.

00:13:28--> 00:13:32

And be not only alone would only say I hadn't had I hadn't I had.

00:13:33--> 00:13:37

There's only one, there's only one. There's only one there's only one.

00:13:38--> 00:13:45

Until Abu Bakar, on the low angle, one of the most noble of society came running.

00:13:46--> 00:13:52

And he saw the land in the state, and he told his master, how much will you sell me this slave.

00:13:53--> 00:14:22

And he named him some price, and it will work out with the law immediately paid and freed him. And not only did he free him, he didn't have his servicemen go and pick him up. He picked him up himself. And it carried him under his own shoulder and walked with Him. Something this society had never seen before, that a normal man of the Arabs walks together carrying a slave.

00:14:23--> 00:14:26

And it was forever from that point on

00:14:27--> 00:14:35

that the companions when they remember this moment, they said our Master abubaker freed our master below the low end Warlock.

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

And a worker would mention that moment when he was passing by his master and his master looked at disgust because of his racism and his bigotry, how could he hold a black person, a slave like this? And he said I swear if you would have told me one gold coin, I would have sold them to you and I will

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

here to show what Islam does

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

to show that the legacy that Islam leaves behind, looked at this person and said, if you would have asked me for 100,000 gold coins, I would have paid it for you.

00:15:17--> 00:15:30

And this legacy in Medina, was set in stone changed society to the point that the noble pair Arab pagans were afraid of Islam because it brought equality to the land.

00:15:31--> 00:15:37

It lifted injustice, it made slaves and noble men equal because of their righteousness and their faith.

00:15:40--> 00:15:43

And this legacy, lecture bailout of the larval animal,

00:15:44--> 00:16:07

being one of the most well known figures in all of Islam, he became the more advent of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he became a leader of the Prophet, and he became a man who married one of the most notable women of society, the sister of a man of minerals had been to Earth as the hernia from one of the noble of tribes.

00:16:10--> 00:16:21

And all of the Muslims found this, no problem, no exception, no preference of another human being based on color, or background.

00:16:22--> 00:16:25

And the Prophet sallallahu instead of himself in Mecca.

00:16:27--> 00:16:32

The Quran never came to the Prophet, and they questioned his character.

00:16:34--> 00:16:41

Then he comes to the prophets, I send them It says, and said, All rasulillah You're a liar. You're a person who cheats.

00:16:42--> 00:16:54

You're a person who misleads others. You're a person who's a bad neighbor, you're a person who doesn't help the poor. You're a person who doesn't stand up for injustice.

00:16:55--> 00:16:59

They could not talk about the character of the prophets of the Lord. He said.

00:17:00--> 00:17:06

He was known in the society as a saw default, I mean, the most truth, the most trustworthy, the most truthful.

00:17:08--> 00:17:12

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 40 years

00:17:13--> 00:17:21

before the message of Islam was given to him, was known in that society to help the community which he lived in

00:17:22--> 00:17:28

40 years before he spoke a letter about Islam. He was known in Mecca

00:17:29--> 00:17:44

as the person to go to for advice, the person to resolve problems, the person that of a person, that if another individual had some transgression against them, they will go to the prophets of Allah they sent him to resolve that dispute to resolve that matter.

00:17:48--> 00:17:57

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam lived that example in his life. And he carried that example, all the way through the Mexican period until he went to Medina.

00:17:59--> 00:18:00

And when he entered Medina

00:18:02--> 00:18:07

Allahumma salli wa sallahu wa barakaatuh Amina Mohammed, when he entered Medina sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:18:09--> 00:18:11

The Jews even wanted to see this man.

00:18:12--> 00:18:25

They wanted to see who is this man that changed society in Mecca? Who was this man that shook Arabia and people are hearing about him in Rome? Who is this man that has delegations sent to him?

00:18:26--> 00:18:54

We want to see him we want to see what he looks like. So one of them by the name of Abdullah Hassan said I went to go see the face of the prophets on aloha to sender. I wanted to see what Mohammed sighs that looks like. Everybody in Medina gathered Arab Jew, Muslim, non Muslim. And he said, when I saw the face of the prophet SAW Selim, for that matter, the unit what Joe salaria send them off to another Joe lay said be what he can.

00:18:57--> 00:19:03

He said what I saw his face just by his appearance, I knew that his face was not the face of a liar.

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

And then what was it that the Prophet salallahu, asylums told that society everyone gathered around him? The Companions, the Jews, the Muslims? The first thing he told that society

00:19:21--> 00:19:27

the first thing that he said to those people was Yeah, you hand us a shoe center.

00:19:29--> 00:19:32

Oh, people spread the greeting of peace

00:19:34--> 00:19:39

after you set up and the second thing he said, was a mukbang.

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

And feed others

00:19:42--> 00:20:00

will sleep well sleep or ham and join between the ties of kinship and people that have cut off one another. Seek to mend those relationships. will salute will lay witness neon and pray in the night. Don't neglect your relationship with your Lord while people are sleeping.

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

Hello Jen, Natalie Salah, you will enter Paradise with safety insecurity.

00:20:07--> 00:20:43

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, law you may know how to come hang your head buried, he may have said, none of you or people of Medina will truly believe until you love for your blood until you love for your brother, what you love for yourself. This was the very first message in Medina. The first thing the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to these people, and who's listening both Muslims and non Muslims, this set the tone for the relationship of everyone in that society. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:20:44--> 00:20:51

brought about a system of welfare no one has seen in the history of mankind, which is called brotherhood

00:20:52--> 00:21:01

Maha with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would link between a person in Mecca who migrated or a person from Rome,

00:21:03--> 00:21:24

like Sahiba, Rumi, or a person from Persia, like Sandman and fantasy, and he would link and tie him with a person that lived in Medina. And he would say, You are his brother, your blood is his blood. And your inheritance is his inheritance. And your wealth is his wealth. To the extent that a companion by the name of Sarah demanded a beer

00:21:25--> 00:21:43

was a brother, to his hope to his guests from Mecca, one of the greatest companions of the Prophet SAW Selim a man under oath. And when he came to his house, he said, My home is your home, my possessions are yours, my clothes are yours, my food is yours. And I have two wives.

00:21:44--> 00:21:49

I will divorce whichever one you like, and you can marry her.

00:21:51--> 00:21:51

No,

00:21:52--> 00:22:00

I'm of African heritage. And for America, hearing that is absolutely mind blowing. Like you just can't picture this,

00:22:01--> 00:22:05

that a person would even offer his wife

00:22:06--> 00:22:09

out of that sincere selflessness.

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

But after I met him that obviously didn't take advantage of it.

00:22:14--> 00:22:27

He said, may Allah bless you in your family, show me the marketplace, because he's from Mecca and a businessman. But it goes to show you to what extent this level of selflessness existed. And not only that,

00:22:28--> 00:22:34

there was one of the companions from the people who were injured in that in battle.

00:22:36--> 00:22:50

And they came to nurse his wounds and give him water. And as soon as the cup came to his mouth, he heard someone else screaming Water, water, and he told him go to my brother, because he's in need of water.

00:22:51--> 00:23:04

So they went to go give water to him. And as soon as the cup came to his mouth, he heard another person saying Water, water. And they went to that individual. And they started to give him water, but he passed away.

00:23:05--> 00:23:11

So they went back to the second person, and they started to give water to him. But he had passed away.

00:23:12--> 00:23:18

And they went back to the first person. And as they came near, they found that he had passed away.

00:23:19--> 00:23:25

People preferred their brothers, even over themselves, in times of death.

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

This was the Medina and legacy of selflessness.

00:23:30--> 00:23:34

This is what changed the nation's this legacy

00:23:35--> 00:23:49

is what led to Islam spreading in Africa, is what led to Islam spreading in India and Pakistan, in Afghanistan, in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. This is the legacy that made Islam rich Indonesia and Malaysia.

00:23:51--> 00:23:57

This is the legacy where there is Islam in South America and Mexico.

00:23:58--> 00:24:10

Because people saw the genuineness of Muslims, the genuine care of humanity, that the Yemeni traders who reached Sri Lanka and India and Indonesia,

00:24:11--> 00:24:34

all of these people were known to not cheat in their business, to be truthful people to be genuine, to be selfless. This was the Medina legacy of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, to the extent that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in his final sermon, when he was standing in front of over 120,000 of his companions.

00:24:35--> 00:24:37

And he said to them,

00:24:39--> 00:24:40

literally,

00:24:41--> 00:24:43

until our combat army hada

00:24:45--> 00:24:49

that it might be that you don't see me after this year.

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

And these companions, listen to what the prophets I send them would say in that final sermon, he said to them,

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

Further formula, Leon, o b. In other

00:25:04--> 00:25:04

words,

00:25:05--> 00:25:07

what elaborate taqwa

00:25:09--> 00:25:19

that there is no preference given to an Arab over a non Arab, nor a white over a black, except with piety and righteousness.

00:25:23--> 00:25:30

And it was him on a salatu salam, who said, in a coma coma in de la jolla Taku.

00:25:32--> 00:25:40

That the most honorable of you in the sight of Allah is those who have most righteousness and piety, and God consciousness.

00:25:41--> 00:25:43

And the one who narrated this hadith

00:25:44--> 00:25:49

was a female companion by the name of a man of the long run her who was black.

00:25:51--> 00:25:57

And many of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam of those who are closest and most beloved to him.

00:25:58--> 00:26:01

were black, were non Arab,

00:26:02--> 00:26:16

like Sandman and fantasy when they used to make fun of him for being Persian. He's the only companion not from the direct bloodline of the prophets of Allah to sender that he said, Sandman is from my family, don't make fun of him.

00:26:18--> 00:26:24

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam showed us in this legacy of selflessness that everyone

00:26:25--> 00:26:52

can give for Islam. Everyone has something to give and all of the Muslims gave for Islam. Torah Heaven, Ziad who opens, Spain was black, the scholarship of Persia, Uzbekistan, ahora, son of Lundestad, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, these countries were some of the greatest scholars of Hadith the past the legacy of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his narrations. emember Buhari was from which country he

00:26:56--> 00:26:56

was back he said Good

00:26:57--> 00:27:10

evening to Hari Rama Hola, which we say is Sahih al Bukhari or Bukhari Sharif was from Uzbekistan, even a Muslim in our territory, mmm nissei. All of these were Persian,

00:27:11--> 00:27:14

or from these stands one of these stems right?

00:27:15--> 00:27:26

And the rich legacy of the Indonesian and Malaysian scholars in Shafi refill, and the Maliki scholars and leaders in Africa, like Arthur man, Dan fodio,

00:27:27--> 00:27:28

how much of their legacy do we know?

00:27:30--> 00:27:32

How much you how much of their history have we studied?

00:27:34--> 00:27:42

This is the legacy of those people who served Islam regardless of their color their background, many of them sometimes they didn't even speak

00:27:43--> 00:27:58

Arabic, like the Berbers of North Africa and Algeria, and the Moroccans and Libyans and Tunisians, who spread Islam all over Africa. And last but not least, the Ottoman Turks for hundreds of years,

00:27:59--> 00:28:00

ruling

00:28:02--> 00:28:06

and spreading peace all over Europe. Let's not forget that legacy.

00:28:07--> 00:28:18

Let's not forget the legacy that these people left behind. Now the question is, it's very nice to talk about the Prophet slicin his legacy, the legacy that

00:28:19--> 00:28:22

other Muslims left behind? The question is,

00:28:23--> 00:28:28

where is the legacy that you leave behind in Birmingham?

00:28:30--> 00:28:34

Where is your imprint of the legacy of the Prophet? Salallahu? alayhi wasallam?

00:28:35--> 00:28:45

Where is the legacy of selflessness in your life? Do your neighbors know about the legacy of Islam? Do your friends and co workers know about the legacy of Islam?

00:28:48--> 00:29:21

Do the people that you're acquainted with regularly the neighbors that live around this beautiful property from the non Muslims? Do they know about the legacy of Islam? And I don't mean the legacy in the history? I mean, the legacy in your actions? Do they know you as being selfless? Do they know you as being a genuine human being? Do they know you as someone who supports people who are oppressed? And in an in a state of injustice? Do they know you as someone not being racist or bigoted? Do they know that legacy of Islam?

00:29:23--> 00:29:24

Ask yourself this.

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

When is the last time you went to a neighbor and gave them a gift?

00:29:30--> 00:29:36

When is the last time you opened a door for somebody? When is the last time you went out of your way?

00:29:38--> 00:29:48

for an individual in the society, who may have oppression and injustice and hatred against you and your heart because of your belief. But you let your selflessness

00:29:49--> 00:29:52

and your example remove that oppression and like

00:29:53--> 00:29:57

that they have in their home. Where is our legacy brothers and sisters

00:29:58--> 00:30:00

because if we know our lives

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

Legacy and if we lived it, we wouldn't be upset

00:30:04--> 00:30:08

over people cursing our profits, or

00:30:09--> 00:30:26

we would be upset that they don't know the legacy of the prophets or lawyers, we wouldn't become sad that our messenger is somebody who's has cartoons written about him. And these days, we will become sad that people don't know him. And that's why they do this.

00:30:27--> 00:30:30

Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:30:31--> 00:30:39

regardless of what anyone says about him, he is the praised one, until the day of judgment, his mentioned is entrenched in history.

00:30:41--> 00:30:45

People will remember and reflect over him until the end of time.

00:30:46--> 00:30:50

But rather, we should be sad, that humanity still

00:30:51--> 00:31:05

some people that don't know the legacy that he lived with the example that he had. This is the Medina legacy brothers and sisters, the legacy of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. The Legacy which we have to live in our example.

00:31:06--> 00:31:25

This is how we change this society around us. If you think it's through political campaigns, if you three if you think it's through the media, if you think it's through the MACD, who will come Wake up and smell the coffee, like they say in America, wake up and smell the coffee.

00:31:26--> 00:32:17

The day when we're legacy, and our beliefs and values will be respected is the day when we live it ourselves. When we live the Medina legacy of selflessness in our community, ask yourself this, how many of us have racism in our hearts? How many of us make cheap jokes and comments about other Muslims because of their color, their country, their background, how many of us wouldn't allow our children to marry others from different cultures? How many of us treat others differently, because we don't understand them. And we feel uncomfortable with other people, converts, people from different backgrounds, or race or culture, how many of us have those idols of racism, narcissism,

00:32:17--> 00:32:19

materialism, built in our hearts.

00:32:21--> 00:33:06

When we as a community, lift this and destroy the idols in our hearts, that's when people will value the legacy that we leave behind. This is what will raise this society. This is what will revive humanity. When we live as a cohesive unit, when we join upon values that we as Muslims all agree upon, when we stop letting confusion over a subsidiary, and matters that don't even have a central point in Islam, or aren't about the objective of this religion, or about the spirit of this religion, or about the purpose of our life, control us and control the dialogue and cause our differences. That is when our legacy will be respected by others.

00:33:07--> 00:33:29

But when they see the non Muslims that are in our society, just down the street here, there's a message it and then there's another message right next to it. And your neighbor passes by and says Why are there two machines right next to each other? It's because you guys don't have space, Mashallah so many Muslims? And he says, No, they're on a different kind of wavelength of Islam.

00:33:30--> 00:33:34

And we don't pray behind them. Can you ever say that to a non Muslim?

00:33:35--> 00:33:50

How will they ever respect us if we don't respect ourselves? How will they ever be cohesive with us, if we don't work in cohesion amongst ourselves, if we don't find the values that connect us, that bring us together,

00:33:51--> 00:33:59

they help us overcome differences, and allow us to pinpoint differences that we have to solve and differences that we can overlook.

00:34:00--> 00:34:06

When we do this as a society, living in Birmingham, living in Britain,

00:34:08--> 00:34:11

this is when the legacy of the prophets I send them will be carried on.

00:34:12--> 00:34:17

And brothers and sisters, I want you to understand this is going to happen whether we like it or we don't.

00:34:19--> 00:34:21

Because it's the pattern in history,

00:34:23--> 00:34:25

that Muslims always come together.

00:34:26--> 00:34:32

But they do so in one of two ways. Either they do so willingly after being reminded,

00:34:33--> 00:34:37

or they are forced to come together because of oppression on them.

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

Choose which way the legacy of the prophets Allah said and will be carried on this earth, because God will revive humanity with this legacy, the legacy of the prophets and messengers, the legacy of removing injustice and oppression from the land and living as equals, working for the righteous. This for the last paragraph

00:35:01--> 00:35:06

And the second way we revive this legacy is by being thankful.

00:35:08--> 00:35:13

Be thankful slaves. Stop complaining because you don't have the iPhone six.

00:35:14--> 00:35:27

Stop complaining, because you didn't get to have your favorite meal of the day. Stop complaining because Liverpool last stop complaining because Manchester United did this and that stop complaining.

00:35:29--> 00:35:35

The prophets I send them said look at those who are under you, rather than those who are over you so that you may not become arrogant.

00:35:38--> 00:35:42

This was the profits to lottery systems legacy. Be thankful people.

00:35:44--> 00:35:51

that any time someone says something negative, you're the one who's the person who's positive.

00:35:53--> 00:35:55

Stop relaying negativity.

00:35:57--> 00:35:59

The Prophet salallahu salam, Salam O Allah.

00:36:02--> 00:36:05

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lost his father.

00:36:07--> 00:36:07

Before he was born, he

00:36:09--> 00:36:12

lost his mother. When he was six,

00:36:15--> 00:36:17

he buried alayhi salatu salam,

00:36:18--> 00:36:20

two of his wives while he was alive,

00:36:21--> 00:36:24

and six of his children with his own hands.

00:36:25--> 00:36:32

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wasn't described as anything but a person who was constantly smiling.

00:36:35--> 00:36:37

This was the legacy of your profits a lot, isn't it?

00:36:38--> 00:36:43

He was mocked, he was threatened. He was beaten, he was tortured.

00:36:45--> 00:36:49

And he raised his hands. He said alumni the economy for a non lawyer

00:36:51--> 00:36:54

or law guide these people because they don't know.

00:36:55--> 00:36:56

Half compassion.

00:36:58--> 00:37:02

Live with some positivity. Remember your Prophet,

00:37:03--> 00:37:18

know who he is, live in his legacy. Live with his example. Start with your family, and live it with your neighbors and those around you. And lastly, teach others the legacy of the Muslims teach the legacy of Islam.

00:37:21--> 00:37:35

Teach them that it was the Muslims in Andalus who gave refuge to Jewish who are being persecuted under the Inquisition and killed and the Muslims open their land and their doors for the Jewish people.

00:37:36--> 00:37:46

teach them about the hundreds of years of peaceful coexistence in Palestine between Jews Muslims and Christians under Muslim rule.

00:37:47--> 00:37:48

teach them

00:37:49--> 00:37:52

about February 24 1525.

00:37:54--> 00:38:01

When the King of France, Francis The first was defeated in a battle called the Battle of Pavia

00:38:03--> 00:38:04

by the Spanish

00:38:05--> 00:38:14

and he was imprisoned and his land was taken and he was humiliated and he was forced to sign a treaty called the Treaty of Madrid.

00:38:17--> 00:38:22

And do you know what he did? King Francis the King of France, sent a letter

00:38:23--> 00:38:37

to the Muslim hanifa in Turkey, pleading for his help. Sultan Suleiman the first known as Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent received this letter and listen to his response.

00:38:39--> 00:38:45

He said Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, all praises due to Allah, the Most Merciful, the Bestower of mercy.

00:38:47--> 00:38:51

The Han and Sultan of the Mediterranean and black seas,

00:38:52--> 00:39:18

Anatolia, color man, Kurdistan, the land of Persia, Damascus, Aleppo, Egypt, Mecca and Medina, Jerusalem, and all of the lands of Arabia, Yemen, and all of many other countries. The son of the valley is the son of the Sultan send him the shadow of God on earth. So photons today man Han,

00:39:19--> 00:39:23

received this letter from you, the governor of France.

00:39:24--> 00:39:53

Francis, you have sent to my port, refuge of sovereigns a letter by your faithful agent, Frankie peeny. And you have furthermore entrusted to him. Verbal communications, you have informed me that the enemy has overrun your country and that you are present in prison and a captive. And you have here asked my aide and sucked and suckers for your deliverance and your safety.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

I enjoin you have courage and Be not deceived.

00:40:00--> 00:40:13

made our glorious predecessors and our illustrious ancestors, may God light up their tombs have never ceased to make war, to repel oppression

00:40:15--> 00:40:28

and to go against injustice, we ourselves have followed in their footsteps, and have at all times, conquered provinces and citadels of great strength and difficult approach.

00:40:29--> 00:40:34

have rest, we will surely respond to you. Signed,

00:40:35--> 00:40:40

Sulaiman the first to France is the first of France February 15 25.

00:40:42--> 00:40:45

Let not the French forget this legacy.

00:40:47--> 00:40:56

Let that let them not forget the day the Muslims stood for their justice and lifting the oppression that faced their people.

00:40:57--> 00:41:11

Let them not forget the moments the Muslims stood up for Europeans simply for the sake of their Lord and creator and establishing equality and justice on the land. Let people not forget this legacy.

00:41:14--> 00:41:43

teach people this legacy, teach people the human compassion that our religion holds and through this is how Allah subhanaw taala will revive humanity will bring understanding of others of our values and beliefs will bring us about respect will bring us about honor is when we live by this legacy, the Medina and legacy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which the people of Medina lived by. Lastly,

00:41:46--> 00:41:47

the people of Medina

00:41:49--> 00:41:57

when they lived with this legacy of selflessness, what did they expect in return? What did they want in return? That they want leadership

00:41:58--> 00:42:02

that they want money? Did they want power?

00:42:03--> 00:42:04

Listen to what they wanted.

00:42:05--> 00:42:14

One day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was giving away wealth that came into Medina a vast amount of wealth

00:42:15--> 00:42:21

and he kept giving and giving people everyone except the unsub the people of Medina

00:42:23--> 00:42:24

everyone got a share

00:42:25--> 00:42:29

the Maha Jean who had migrated from Mecca they gotta share.

00:42:31--> 00:42:35

Everyone who came from outside of Medina gotta share and nobody from Medina got anything.

00:42:37--> 00:42:42

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gathered the people of Medina

00:42:43--> 00:42:47

and he said yeah, national unsolved. Oh unsolved.

00:42:49--> 00:42:52

Do you feel anxious for the things of the world?

00:42:54--> 00:42:56

Do you want some of this material gain?

00:42:58--> 00:43:38

Know that I have inclined these people's hearts to Islam. I gave them gifts so that they could feel comfortable and their hearts become at ease with the faith of Islam. Your hearts are already established. Oh unsalted Are you not satisfied and then a total don't and then nasty or Girona machete will bear will bury Rila dare come one to zero una mirada Suleiman sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Erie helico he said, Are you not pleased or unsought that people will go home with some cash some money, sheep and camels and you will go with the prophets of Allah and send them to your homes.

00:43:39--> 00:43:46

Your reward is the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And when the people heard that

00:43:47--> 00:43:49

all of the people of Medina started to cry

00:43:52--> 00:43:55

because they got the best reward

00:43:56--> 00:43:58

that any human being can get,

00:43:59--> 00:44:01

which is the companionship

00:44:02--> 00:44:04

of the most beloved person to them.

00:44:05--> 00:44:06

The prophets of allies

00:44:07--> 00:44:25

and they said rodina below so Lila is on a low It was awesome and we are pleased with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as our share of this wealth of this world. No one of the Medina and companions is known to have taken a position of leadership after that.

00:44:27--> 00:44:41

In the history of Islam, you will hear the names of armado lucapa Abu Bakr, sedate Earth man a bitter fan alley of the Allahu Allahu Allah gymea cottonwood eat, all of them,

00:44:42--> 00:44:44

were other than the people of Medina.

00:44:45--> 00:44:59

All of them leaders and generals were other than the people of Medina because they truly lived that legacy of selflessness. To the extent they didn't even ask for leadership or power or money.

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

They left this world.

00:45:03--> 00:45:29

Just like their prophet left this world at a circle setup. The final words of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, after he gave up gave away all of his wealth and charity before he passed away, on a sell off to sit on his final words were electrophysical Allah electrophysical Allah in the highest of companionship in the highest of companionship. And these people of Medina the unsolved

00:45:31--> 00:45:39

that's the only thing they left with, for from this earth, the companionship of Allah subhana wa tada and the prophets of the law it was silent

00:45:40--> 00:45:41

with a final

00:45:42--> 00:45:43

touch

00:45:44--> 00:45:47

to make us understand what it means to live by this Medina and legacy

00:45:48--> 00:45:53

is there's a French filmmaker by the name of Isabel matich,

00:45:54--> 00:45:58
