I'll call them as often indicati la feuille apres due to Allah subhanaw taala who knows what we reveal and knows what we conceal and even knows what the animals feel. We thank him we praise Him and on him we have the lion for this and we will return to the guidance. We asked him to send his peace, his blessings, His mercy on the best of human beings and prophets, Hamas of

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

Allah hottie and cinnamon Hornby praise until the very end of our days and we asked him for us to fasten his guidance, mercy, and to never lead us astray for him to save us on Judgement Day. So Giacomo here for joining our session on the prophetic communication.

00:00:51--> 00:01:29

This session Inshallah, we're going to be starting a new book, we just finished discussing with the heart in mind by Mikael Smith, which speaks about prophetic emotional intelligence, it was a thematic commentary, not a line by line commentary, I think we covered pretty much most of the main themes, discussed some more examples, expounded on kind of some of the more details of how the profitsystem dealt with people. Now, this book for those of you who are online, how he treated them, by chefs or hiring managers for free. Online, you can download it and follow along with us in Sharla, about actual examples in different realms. So she started having legit, this is actually a

00:01:29--> 00:02:08

summary of a much larger book, he thought that it would be good to summarize, it's in six chapters. And the first chapter is called an example for humanity. Chapter Two is how the prophets I send my dealt with family relatives and those around him. Chapter Three is how the prophets are somewhat dealt with specific social groups. And Chapter Four is how he dealt with groups requiring specific styles of religious invocation, meaning things related to, you know, as his capacity as a faith leader for more or less, how he dealt with people who committed sins and they asked for

00:02:09--> 00:02:19

form of redemption and seeking forgiveness, how the prophets lie settlement conducted himself with new Muslims, how the process of conducted himself in religious edicts or fatwa,

00:02:20--> 00:02:31

and how he dealt with those who, you know, they actually wanted to stir trouble in the Muslim community, and then hypocrites at that time, people who essentially for one or two reasons,

00:02:33--> 00:03:13

they hid their faith, they hid their disbelief, and pretended to be muslims in order to cause treason within the Muslim community. So how he dealt with them is incredibly important. In general, because as a state figure, there's always going to be times where people try to create problems within the Muslim community and the prophets doesn't give an example of how to deal with that. How the prophets have dealt with the general masses is chapter five. So how we dealt with women, how you dealt with the elderly, how we dealt with young people. And then chapter six is how the prophets I sent them and dealt with, with animals and inanimate objects. So this

00:03:16--> 00:03:54

book is encompassing for those of you who just again, want the book just type how he treated them, and the author's name when edge it on in Google and you get it, you get it for free. So it's a free book, you can just follow along with us. So we're just gonna get right into it. Introductions don't necessarily read. We've gone through the details of this. He talks about the importance of supplicating after the prophets I said him his name. What does that mean? It's a good I think, maybe topic to discuss now. Every time the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has mentioned the prophets, I said in the Hadith, that

00:03:56--> 00:04:23

the person is bankrupt, the person is bankrupt, the person is bankrupt, the one that I have mentioned in their presence, and they don't send prayers upon me. So that's simply saying salAllahu alayhi wasallam. So the scholars and discuss what does it mean? And how often do you have to say it? And do you have to say it every single time, this is what the scholars of Islam generally discuss? So its meaning consists of two parts, one is called salah, and the other one's called setup.

00:04:25--> 00:04:44

And he says here that there are forms of prayer, and it refers to the predominant opinion that the first part the Salah, like prayer, what does that mean you sending prayer on the prophets, I said, what does that actually entail? It means to ask Allah to exalt his mentioned the last part that it says in sort

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

of national like esodoc at the, at the at the middle or near the end of the of the surah. What a foreigner like vichara Allah says and we have exalted your mentioned we have raised your mentioned. So this is what you're asking for when you say oh Allah says Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:30

upon the prophets I set a meeting raise an exalted dimension of the prophets of the Lord. So, in other words, we asked Allah to honor glorify and raise his rank, exalt as mentioned, because we as humans cannot praise him enough to fulfill his due right on us for conveying the message that guided us to the path of Allah. So the fact that the prophets I said them was the means and mechanism for guidance for believers. This requires us to show thankful Listen, graciousness and gratitude to the prophets of Allah Hadees and and that's why

00:05:31--> 00:05:33

the scholars of Islam

00:05:34--> 00:05:37

they expound upon this more.

00:05:38--> 00:06:12

One of them is based on a hadith of the prophets of Allah, they said, I'm aware, obey even Kab came to came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Yes, Allah, how much of my prayer of my normal dua should I dedicate to you, sending Salam Salam upon you? So the prophets I said, have said as much as you are? So he said, What about 1/3? The two hours that I make, I have like 1/3 of it, I dedicate to this prayer for you we've had of thankfulness and gratefulness. And the prophets I sent him a says that's good. And if you want to increase it, and that's better. So he said, half, he said, That's good. And if you want increase it, then that's better. So he said two thirds, he said, That's good.

00:06:12--> 00:06:33

And if you want to increase it, then it is better. So we said fine, there'll be times not every single day, but there will be times that I will dedicate my entire salon Sadam upon you just praying for for Allah Subhana Allah to grant you that you can exalt Your status and, and salaam which is to send peace upon you. So the prophets I said was said in this beautiful Hadith, if you do that,

00:06:34--> 00:06:46

took for him McWay, your thorough Lakka then book, your worries will be dealt with Allah Patra will take care of everything that you worry about, and your sins will be forgiven.

00:06:47--> 00:07:06

So the scholars, they they explain this, why, why, why this prayer results in this great reward. And the reason for that is because if you if you pray for the beloved of God, then Allah will take care of you as his beloved, you're mentioning Allah,

00:07:07--> 00:07:46

bye by praising his beloved and the fact that he granted you faith and granted you guidance through him. So the more you send out a lot on the Prophet system, it's called subtle Latin, in Arabic, the more that ALLAH SubhanA, Allah will bless you in your life and will take care of your worries. Because that concern you have for the Prophet Allah will take care of your concerns. So this, this has been proven, in fact, you know, I don't know if you remember one of my teachers that have told you about, he's had heart surgery. And when he was in this particular country, he said you wouldn't recognize it like that, necessarily. The nurse was Muslim or not. Right. And your job, which is

00:07:46--> 00:07:49

pretty normal Muslim woman, this was when in

00:07:50--> 00:07:52

working as a nurse, so his

00:07:53--> 00:08:02

heart rate actually fell after the surgery. This is like very dangerous, he might, he might end something happen, he could die could be hard, harder is heart attack. And

00:08:04--> 00:08:41

it could end up another surgery. So while the doctors are rushing, she says to him, oh, so and so Sundiata NaVi, since a lot of the prophets Eliza, Teacher, this guy has like, you know, like some of the shows have 25 million viewers. So he's not like a he's known, but she doesn't know who he is. So he said, I started saying salam Salam upon the Prophet, salallahu Alaihe Salam, and by the time the doctors came, he says they're looking at the monitor, telemetry monitor, you're like, What are you talking about? There's nothing wrong with him. His heart rate had normalized, things became this is from Allah says from from God, we can't, so can't have science does not explain every form of

00:08:41--> 00:08:43

miracle oftentimes. But

00:08:44--> 00:09:20

this is the case also with many other people. One person said that there, there's two things that they started doing that they found the benefit and blessing in their life in ways that they couldn't have imagined a law providing for them in ways that they never thought. One of them is Quran, and the other one was just full on after fajr particularly they said and the other one was Salop on the Prophet civilize. So there's, these are just examples. So just encourage us to, to do as much of this as possible. As far as the second term which is Salam upon the Prophet SAW Selim. It refers he says to be free from displaced

00:09:21--> 00:09:32

things which regards to his mission nation and to make his nation blessed and increased those who call towards the path he called for its ruling

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

is the predominant opinion is that when the prophesy seven is mentioned, the first time it's an obligation, you have to say sell a lot isn't the first time you have to say sell a lot. So and that comes from the Hadith of the Prophet I just mentioned to you and to me, the Muslim Imam Muhammad, where the process has said is the miser is the one who My name is mentioned or written, and they do not say salam upon me meaning say Salallahu Salam, another nourishing Allah will humiliate and disgrace whoever hears or reads my name and he does not say salam

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

meaning songs a lot of artists have them for me, and this is comes from the eye of the Quran. And so to Lhasa I number 56 I mean surah number 33 Number 56 where Allah says in Allahu Allah mela Yukito you saw Lunarlon nivia Your love enamel Sallu alayhi wa salim Otis Lima, indeed Allah exalted the mention of the Prophet and his angels. Oh, you have believed, exalt his mentioned ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant him Salam. And we mentioned some of its virtues as well.

00:10:35--> 00:10:35

We mentioned that

00:10:38--> 00:10:53

and how often should one say it even salah he says Some scholars say that one should say it every time they hear the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam maybe his name being mentioned, either saying he you say civilized, meaning even the even the pronoun

00:10:54--> 00:10:59

the prophets I sent him his name is mentioned either implicitly or explicitly, one should send it up on the Prophet license.

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

And the name of the Prophet SAW Allah Hadiya set them on writing one should write it whenever the name is mentioned what should not become bored of repeating it regardless of how many times it is written or said and anyone who neglects this has indeed deprived themselves from a great deal of reward.

00:11:14--> 00:11:24

Okay, so chapter one, an example for humanity, an example for humanity, and how the prophets I send them was indeed the best of examples. And Allah subhanaw taala says

00:11:27--> 00:12:12

in socialism as well I number 21 Look at Canada computer so the law he was watching hassling him in Canada, Abdullah will Yamanaka that there certainly has been in in the example or there certainly has been in the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam an excellent example for anyone who hopes in God and the Last Day and who were met with that kind of look at the law. And remember is God often what is this referred to? This refers to a number of things. In Arabic, when you want to refer to somebody as an as an example you use one of two words, the first word is called DUA and the second word is OSA. The word Cordova is not mentioned in this in this is the word OSA is used. And

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

I'll tell you the difference. Not that kind of look and feel so there are certain Hasina. Cordova means somebody is a good example in something, right? This person is a good example as a teacher, as a leader as a as a parent, as whatever, whatever it is, as a boss, so they are a good example in something. All right.

00:12:35--> 00:13:02

And that thing only can somebody be a good teacher, but they're horrible friend 100%. Could somebody be a good parent, but they're horrible spouse? Yeah, that can happen. So they're only a good example of that one thing that's called Caudwell. But if you use the world word OSA was Watson Hazara, it refers to being the best of examples and everything, you're basically in a role model in every way.

00:13:03--> 00:13:41

That's how Allah described his messenger and that's why the Quran is deeper than the words we translate that the more you learn Arabic, and you understand the context of the words that are used in the Quran, the more deeper appreciation you have for the divine miraculous nature of the Quran itself, is in fact in the meaning of the Quran, and how it expounds and gives you gives you guidance, and even the words that are used. But unfortunately, this is not sometimes well related. Because if we were to do this, you would have brackets and long sentences, and that's what Tafseer is essentially. So Allah Subhana Allah describes the Prophet Muhammad is also set up as the best of

00:13:41--> 00:14:20

examples in every single way, in every possible format. And that's why he says here, that he quotes even Kathy that this IR contains the great principle of hearing to the sayings actions and injunctions of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the definition of an example is that he was the ideal example that a Muslim was following actions and speech, and he was a source of guidance in all matters. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the best example and various aspects of this of his life as a religious leader, a judge a head of state, a teacher, a nurturer, a husband, a father, a manager and a leader. And not only specific to the to the male gender, of

00:14:20--> 00:14:25

course, to both genders because he was the application of revelation if you want to simplify.

00:14:27--> 00:14:47

Allah sent the revelation to humanity of how to act. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam exemplified how that should be. So if you want to learn what something means, in the Quran, just look at the life of the prophets of Allah Hadith, following the examples of the prophets, where Allah subhanaw taala said to to His Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam Therby, who, whom milk Teddy,

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

which is the direct injunction, so from their guidance, take an example, meaning the Prophet this was a command to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam to follow the

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

sample of his of his forefathers, because the prophets I send my says, the prophets are all brothers with different mothers. They're all related.

00:15:08--> 00:15:11

They're all related. And hence

00:15:13--> 00:15:28

they are in his examples. And then our in our example is the Prophet Muhammad Ali Saltos. Allah orders profit to follow the example of the prophets who came before him, he says, those are the those are the ones whom Allah has guided. So from their guidance, take an example

00:15:29--> 00:16:08

surah number six ayah number 90. Even cathedra says that this first, this ayah contains an order to the Prophet and his nation ought to follow what he was ordered to do. And he says even to me, I said, the Stories of the Prophets contain admonition for believers, who will be tested and must not go into despair. Muslims must realize that those who are better than them the prophets were tested. The outcome of those ordeals was in favor of these prophets. Thus, a doubter must become certain a sinner must repent, and a believer must become stronger in faith, it is through their store, it is through the stories of the prophets, that one becomes able to follow their examples properly. And

00:16:08--> 00:16:23

this is exemplified further that the vast majority of the theology of of that is that is in Islam is is exemplified through the mechanism or manner of stories, stories of the prophets.

00:16:24--> 00:17:03

The vast majority of hot water if Allah wants to teach us a lesson in certitude, we look at the story of Miriam, the story of the mother of Musa Moses, we look at the salary set and we look at all the use, you want to see a person that trusts and relies on Allah. You look at Yusuf Ali's, Joseph, you want to see how a person overcomes the great difficulties in their lives. You look at the Prophet Mohammed slice them throughout his entire life, for example. And you look at the trials that Abraham faced his father Abraham, of being estranged and being displaced and being rejected and being exiled and through all of that he stood firm. And that's why Allah says about his, the Prophet

00:17:03--> 00:17:17

salallahu Alaihe Salam, his father cannot omit and con attendee Allah. He was a nation himself that stood upright for the truth. And that's an example for her for the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.

00:17:19--> 00:17:41

So the author should when I did have you the whole law, he says, We were ordered to follow the example of the prophets regarding the following matters, number one in obeying God and worshiping Him, this is one of the most important areas of obedience to the prophets, because they all came to fulfill that one message that one faith that God sent to all of humanity. That's why one of my friends who had accepted Islam in medical school,

00:17:43--> 00:17:51

he says to me something, he says, the vast majority of Christians, they don't understand the relationship that Islam has to,

00:17:53--> 00:18:38

to the rest of the prophets, specifically Jesus, and God, they just does this. There's no connection made. So he said that one of the ways that that helped me with my family, he would say that the angel Gabriel of the Holy Ghost is the same as the same angel that came to Moses, Jesus and Muhammad peace be upon. He says this like, like, there's like lights that go off in the minds of certain people, when you just simply use that term time, not same time, terminology. And they all came for the same message and the same purpose and the same revelation. And that is to worship one Lord, one faith, under God, indivisible what we say that right. So the Pledge of Allegiance actually is

00:18:38--> 00:19:16

entirely Islamic, Sharia law. But the point being is that this faith in incidentally, is the same faith God sent to humanity. So why don't we not then accept that there was a multiplicity of narrative that, okay, the Christian narrative and the Jewish narrative, we don't believe in that because we believe that faith was then altered with the hands of men, Allah says that they change the revelation for their own benefit. So the revelation was corrupted, and it does not remain as it came. So what we have in the Bible, what we have in the Torah are not the exact

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

I am are not the exact

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

revelation that was sent to

00:19:26--> 00:19:29

that was sent to those prophets.

00:19:30--> 00:19:43

Those who are corrupted hence why the last revelation, or we can say the last testament was sent to humanity to preserve that one faith, which is the Quran was sent to the Prophet Muhammad, who was the one who delivered it, the angel, the Holy Spirit.

00:19:45--> 00:20:00

So, all of a sudden he describes this ayah that Allah subhanaw taala has said and remember our servants Ibrahim and Isaac and Jacob those have strengthened religious vision. He said that the verse means the ones with diligence and perform

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

forming worship and knowledge of Allah's affairs. Tada, another scholar said, they, the prophets were given a strong will to perform this type of worship and a strong vision with regard to religious matters. So the idea of strong will is something with the Prophets came with that you are given. You're given this

00:20:20--> 00:20:33

strength to persevere upon this faith, not just simply believing it, but to persevere. Because the most difficult thing is not acceptance of truth is to remain on truth.

00:20:34--> 00:20:58

So the prophets, I said, I'm an example. The more we learn about it, the more it actually will grant us and give us an increase us in our own perseverance. How, if you look at how many times the prophets I seldom was attacked, and hurt and and mocked, and, and expelled in every possible way, you will realize how much he handled.

00:20:59--> 00:21:12

From the earliest days, one of the most beautiful stories that I remember from the sale of the prophets and constantly is that for three years, the prophets I sent him and the earliest believers were commanded not to go public.

00:21:14--> 00:21:31

For three years, this was called The Secret stage of Islamic call. Why? Because first of all, strengthening number two, those that society was a very hostile society to beliefs, they felt that were threatening to the makin power structure.

00:21:34--> 00:22:18

And thirdly, for them to, of course, increase their ranks and to, and then with the increasing ranks comes alliances, that bring about a sense of security and peaceful, or the opportunity for peacefully calling to Islam. If that doesn't exist, Islam can function in a hostile environment where people essence essentially talk about Islamophobia, since its anti Islamic, kind of like sentiment to the level of fascism. So in those first three years, the prophesy selama was commanded with one command, one that I see a lot that can occur when worn your closest family, and this teaches us as Muslims, that the people that we are responsible for is our family members. And our

00:22:18--> 00:22:52

understanding is our family members, those who are closest to you, those who are closest to you, you are responsible for them, and you are responsible for them in your in the best of manners in the best of ways, and the prophets of Allah. They said the way he would deal with them was, first of all, Allah created the prophet to be a person of integrity, to be a person who was known as a Saudi Amin before he was known as a Nabil Rasul he was known as the most truthful, and the most trustworthy, trust cannot come. There's a beautiful

00:22:53--> 00:22:57

picture of some kid in this Islamic school.

00:22:58--> 00:23:03

Right outside of the Women's Hall, it's called trust will grow.

00:23:04--> 00:23:16

Literally, it's like a big thing. And I as I was walking miles like hey, that's really cool. It's really nice statement, trust will grow. Trust is not come is not given Trust is earned, right. And they didn't trust the prophets. I seldom except after a long

00:23:18--> 00:24:05

day, like dealing with him knowing that he was the most trustworthy businessman and all of it all of Mecca. He was the most trustworthy in terms of their political affairs and when he was volunteered to give consultation from an early age, when there was a war in Mecca. He involved himself in writing a piece, a course called helpful football, which was the peace accords between the people of Mecca to end the war, and he was among the signees to guarantee safety for those who had any form of oppression done against them, they would stand up to defend those who are oppressed, he was among the signers. So he established a rapport and a position of being trustworthy. In fact, people would

00:24:05--> 00:24:10

go to him for console people will know that he does not steal he does not

00:24:11--> 00:24:17

treat people in bad faith, he does not become treacherous towards anyone and hence the Sadiq Khan, I mean sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:24:19--> 00:24:48

and before even he became a messenger, he was known as that in society. So no one questioned in the entire in the entire life of the prophet was of no one questioned his character, as you all know. So we need to build our level to that, with especially those closest to us, when they see that faith, in fact, is something that's practiced by Integrity, increasing our integrity, increasing our trustworthiness among people. Like that sign says, Trust will grow, right trust will grow.

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

And hence, when the Prophet I saw sent him was deemed as trustworthy, then he when he was given the message in those first three years, the scholars

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

Some of the prophetic biography they mentioned that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam had invited his close family members twice at least to his home, fed them food and then talk to them Islam spoke to them about Islam in a very honest candid way. And some of them accepted and others rejected outrightly some of them actually said what you're coming with is, is mocking our gods marking marking our idols mocking our faith mocking our society and cursing our or distracts us be dishonouring our our forefathers, because what you're coming with his rejection of were of our entire way of life of, of what you know what you came with does not respect our culture and all

00:25:49--> 00:26:02

kinds of things. So this is what the province has been faced with until there was about roughly 40 people, roughly about 40 people who accepted Islam and those three, three years actually almost exactly 40 people.

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

The 40th person happened to be on

00:26:06--> 00:26:30

our Hatha when he accepted Islam, the Prophet saw someone public, because he brought with him strength. He brought with him strength, and strength, of course is different than than just simply having numbers. But when he and Hamza dunkel of the prophets have accepted Islam, those two were the sign of strength for the believers, for the first time they prayed publicly when Ahmad accepted Islam. So in any case,

00:26:32--> 00:26:42

this all builds this notion of why the prophets I send them as an example for us and the

00:26:44--> 00:26:45


00:26:46--> 00:26:54

giving of the message and the call to those closest to us. And of course, this must be tempered with something else. Some people they

00:26:55--> 00:27:31

take it upon themselves to such an extent that it harms them while they're trying to call others to faith. And that's why I love 100 assets for Allah Allah kabocha and Allah enough SICA Allah 30 millimeter, we had a hadith perhaps that you you're going to kill yourself over worry over them because they turn their backs on you and they leave their footsteps on the ground meaning they they turn their backs on you and they they walk away. Your nomadic had been out of Allah says Prophet upon us only to deliver but to what extent keep chasing people, they don't want to they they seek.

00:27:33--> 00:28:07

They don't want to listen to you. They don't want to come to you. They don't want to address it. They don't want your job is not to chase your job is to hear this is the opportunity. Your delivery, and you're you're good character. And yes, extending a hand sometimes they don't want to. They don't want to shake it. Yes. Does that mean okay? They turned their back on me I don't forget them and who they are, I don't need to listen to them. And no, you still have to extend the hand this is an obligation. You have to treat people better than they even treat you in some some aspects. This is true, but not to the point of abuse and not to the point of where a person neglects themselves, and

00:28:07--> 00:28:24

neglect their emotions neglects and burdens them emotionally and spiritually to such an extent that they feel like they are people saviors, no at the same time. We must have a balance in this component because oftentimes people when they're trying to deliver the message of Islam,

00:28:25--> 00:28:37

there is an element of sadness that people who were closest to them are not the ones that care. And that's why the prophets has sent himself with discipline by Allah care about those who want to listen to you.

00:28:39--> 00:29:00

Either Soweto Allah, the prophets, I said was with amongst some of the leaders of Croatia, and he was he got some time to sit with them. And he was speaking to them when a blind man came. And this blind man when he came to speak to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the prophets, I said was seemingly more interested to speak to those who are nobles.

00:29:01--> 00:29:06

Why because his heart wanted these people they to accept the sun because there is

00:29:08--> 00:29:16

credit on a subtle CERAM when they accept the standard there people will be affected. So there's actually good intention there. But Allah revealed an entire suite of the Quran.

00:29:17--> 00:29:18


00:29:20--> 00:29:21

was the process on frown and turned

00:29:22--> 00:29:25

Under Armour when the blind man came to him.

00:29:27--> 00:29:40

Right? Well, now you did Eagle Allah who is eco Allahu Akbar. And what will make you understand Oh, Prophet, maybe he's the one who wants to seek purity and the correct path. Allahu Akbar many what Don't dis

00:29:42--> 00:30:00

regard people who want faith and who want to come close to Allah subhanaw taala. Put your attention towards them. Right. One of the things I think we have in the Muslim community is we're so concerned about those who don't come to the masjid. Well, we need to bring them we have to and this concern is so powerful.

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

As if that you stop catering to the people that are in front of you

00:30:04--> 00:30:07

cater to the ones that come, right? You all like for example.

00:30:09--> 00:30:47

So this is something that we have to build a community from Donald Trump started with 40 people like I told you I'll just now the prophets I was continuously only concerned about those outside those outside those outside, then that would mean that you would neglect those who are actually there. So we need to build a strong core, strong community core that makin society is built on strong communal ties, a social spiritual environment, that is that is vibrant. That's important. If that social spiritual environment does not exist, then what in reality are we building? What is it that we're building? What are we trying to? What are we trying to do? Right?

00:30:48--> 00:30:55

It's beyond just words that are said or heard. It's about creating a genuine community.

00:30:56--> 00:30:57


00:30:58--> 00:31:38

this is incredibly important at the earliest onset of the, of the Prophetic Mission, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, was concerned with those around him, with those around him and setting an example in muddle for those. And then, with regards to his worship, Allah says to Abraham, my Lord, make me when Ibrahim made the made the DUA, my Lord make me someone that establishes prayer, and for my descendants and progeny, our Lord accept our DUA and supplication. So there my concern was what that their connection with Allah subhanaw taala strong, and he says, praising Ismay, Ishmael

00:31:39--> 00:31:47

and he used to enjoin his people to prayer, and charity is a cat and was to his Lord very, he was pleasing to his Lord.

00:31:48--> 00:31:50

And he continues by giving more examples.

00:31:58--> 00:32:02

And the prophets of Allah, Islam has examples in worship, he goes into greater

00:32:03--> 00:32:04

examples of

00:32:05--> 00:32:06

specifically in dua,

00:32:09--> 00:32:17

one of the ayat that he mentions here is that the Prophet sallallahu, salams, humility in the site in the in standing in front of Allah.

00:32:18--> 00:32:35

He says, those were the when Allah mentioned sort of medium, those were the ones whom Allah has bestowed favor from among the prophets of the descendants of Adam and those who carried who were carried in the ship with Noah, and of the descendants of Abraham, and is an Israelite eel, who destroy

00:32:37--> 00:32:39

father of Yusuf was also named was.

00:32:42--> 00:33:12

You have to be good. Yeah. Cool. That's it. Yeah. Jacob, Jacob is the other name of Islam, or his other name is Sid. So it's not allowed for you to curse Israel is really the name of a prophet. And that's what we say, the occupied lands and occupied occupiers, you know, don't, it's not allowed for you to, to, to curse Israel. Israel is the name of, of a great Prophet sallallahu. He's, and we honor Israel, the true Israel, as far as the occupiers want to deal with them.

00:33:15--> 00:33:42

So he says, and it's the law 11 of those whom we guided and chose when the verses or the act of the Most Merciful, recited, they fell in prostration. And they did so weeping. A great scholar said he said, prostration, and weeping means that they submitted to the Ayat of Allah and that their hearts were affected by them. They had great hope and fear to the point of crying and prostrating to their Lord. I mean, this is the level of height of faith that these people reached, that they were actually physically affected by their connection with Allah.

00:33:44--> 00:33:50

And this is the best exam, I mean, the height of examples of the prophets, is the example of their servitude to their Lord.

00:33:51--> 00:34:32

How were they as worshipers? How were they so devout, and that's why people were amazed by their devoutness when they looked at them, and they're, you know, that that actually gives you if you look at normally, people are impressed by by others, conviction and things. If you if you watch documentaries about Michael Jordan, or Muhammad Ali, are nice people. People just impressed how much conviction they had and what they were doing. And all human beings, we're always going to have respect for people who have conviction by nature. So be a person's conviction learn from the Prophet Muhammad Ali Sato, Sudan, and people of strength and those who follow truth will always follow

00:34:32--> 00:34:35

people of strength and those who follow truth. That's always the case.

00:34:38--> 00:34:59

So he says that Allah told us that the Prophet Joseph Yusuf Ali salaam said in his dua, my Lord you have given me something of sovereignty and taught me of the interpretation of dreams. Creator of the heavens and the earth, you're my protector in this world in the Hereafter caused me to die Muslim and join me with the righteous. This dua of use of Palestine when he after he went through all of that hardship and difficulty and he became

00:35:00--> 00:35:39

A minister in the in Egypt, he made this prayer. When he made the spirit caused me to die as a muslim and join me with the righteous, like Sangha. This was also the dua of Abu Bakr Siddiq right before he passed away. This was the this was the final words of what goes to the companion of the Prophet Muhammad. So I sent him the first hadith of Islam. When he was dying as a Khalifa These are the words he said, to offend a Muslim or hate me, while his name is Salim, and join me with the righteous. So the Prophet Muhammad sai cinema was the most God fearing of people. He was the most. And the right word to translate is he was the most conscious of Allah.

00:35:40--> 00:36:17

He was the most conscious of Allah He himself said this. He says, I am the most God conscious when you read, when you read any translation that says God fearing this is not entirely correct translation. Why? Because the word for consciousness as tequila, tequila means to literally it means comes from the word with chi, which means to put a barrier between you and something that will harm you. That's why shield is comes from the same world word. So when a person has taqwa, they're shielding themselves from the punishment of God.

00:36:18--> 00:36:47

And what does that act of mechanism is fear. But the concept actually has more to do with consciousness. When you're conscious of God of Allah subhanaw taala. That means you will think about, do think about that position of Allah before you do an action in your life. That's what God consciously means you're conscious of him before you do anything. So this is a better translation than simply God fearing.

00:36:48--> 00:37:11

Because is that consciousness always based on fear knows based on also love is based on all is based on presents. It's based on hope. It's based on knowing and understanding. You know, if you do this, this might be a preventer of acceptance of prayers. So that's in the back of your mind, too. It's not just fear. It's a it's a mash of these things. And that's why God consciousness is a better word for Taqwa.

00:37:13--> 00:37:25

Okay, so he said, I am the Hadith that's authentic in Bukhari Muslim. I shall the Lord has said that the prophets I said, I hope that I am the most God conscious among you,

00:37:26--> 00:37:30

and most knowledgeable, most knowledgeable of what to avoid.

00:37:32--> 00:37:45

And he would still make the door odds narrated by Ennis ematic the most often said dua or prayer of the prophets I send them is the following. So the prophets I send them would consistently pray. yarmulke Dibble cooks a bit cold reality make

00:37:46--> 00:37:51

alternative of the hearts make my hearts firm on your dean, what does Dean mean?

00:37:53--> 00:37:55

What is the mean? Ha.

00:37:56--> 00:37:57

Path of human what is the mean?

00:38:00--> 00:38:07

I asked them because they've attended more than like 13 times I've said this, and if they didn't answer I would have been upset, right? So it's not right, the other ones are excused.

00:38:09--> 00:38:29

Dean does not mean number one religion. We need to take this word away. The word religion has a Eurocentric conceptualization, the religion in the minds of average Americans as the separation of church and state the separation of the SEC sacred and secular in Islam, we don't believe in this.

00:38:31--> 00:39:17

We don't but this does not exist. Someone trying to create this does not make sense. The word Dean means way of life. So when you say Alhamdulillah Hera Bill al Amin rahmanir, Rahim, Malik Kiyomi. A Dean, right. Dean here has multiple contexts. One of the words that Dean refers to comes from as payback. So that's not the same word. That means different contexts. The Owner of the Day of payback, but Allah subhanaw taala when he says he is the one who has given us this Deen in Medina and Allah him Islam, you see out there is the same word but they have two different meanings. In this tents, Allah says and the deen that Allah accept is only Islam.

00:39:20--> 00:39:56

Yes, so the first word comes from the word Dain. Which means loan. So the so Allah is the is the Owner of the Day of payback. What does he what a payback for all of yours, your deeds or your since he has understand? It's called The Day of payback. So everybody because it's difficult to translate recompense, what does that mean? Payback is the easier word for all you're getting paid back paid back for what the good deeds that you do or the or the sins that you commit the day of consequence. So it's not just only day to day of judgment, but it's also even more important to say you're getting paid back for what you did in this life. And

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

exactly, that's a trend

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

Action dial last part that says

00:40:03--> 00:40:10

that in Allah Azza Ramana Wamena. Unfortunately I know Vienna homogenic Allah has indeed bought the souls of the believers.

00:40:11--> 00:40:33

Right? What have they sold, they sold their lives. For what? To Allah for a transaction that they will see for. So Allah says, for step zero be be equal. So be glad tidings for the transaction that you've done. You know, you said they say this, they say, a statement here that you sell your soul to the devil. Right now we sold our souls to the Almighty.

00:40:34--> 00:41:03

Yeah, we have transacted no one can spy our souls except our souls are possessed by the Almighty that our Lords panel which had. So hence, going back to what we were saying, the name for the word for Dean refers to a way of life, the world view, there is no separation of the sacred and the secular, there is no separation of church and state, you live your way of life wherever you are. And that's why I've mentioned this multiple times, and hence exactly what we're saying, as a way of life.

00:41:05--> 00:41:21

He still says, yeah, we'll call it we'll call it service call reality. Nick allogeneic. On your way of life, oh, the Turner of the hearts. Make my heart firm on this way of life. It's not. And you who was he? This was his most often repeated drop.

00:41:22--> 00:41:45

This was the one who is the most God conscious of all of us. Yeah, he continuously said this, the most male laws allow us and enable us to say this, as much as we can, oh, the turn of the hearts make our hearts firm on the way of life that you have chosen for us. I mean, and he says, I'm used to say, indeed, the hearts of the children of Adam, all of them are between the two fingers of the Most Merciful as one heart.

00:41:46--> 00:42:29

He turns them as they wish, meaning if somebody's heart turns, there's not literal by the way, it's not nothing is literal. It's an it's a metaphor, which is that people's hearts can change. And that is why you might miss Shafi. He said something beautiful in line of poetry. Why am I so warm? So me and in San oiliness? Illa Linnaeus, yeah, and Uranus. Ye Well, Masumi Al, Calvo, Eliezer collabo, he says, on the human was not called a human except because of their his his often forgetfulness. And because the words in sound comes from the word, which is there's four root words, for instance, one of them is Nestle. And one of them is this Yeah, and one of the means constantly moving. And one of

00:42:29--> 00:42:34

the means forgetfulness. The word insan in Arabic comes from these two roots, and there's two other roots.

00:42:35--> 00:43:17

So Allah subhanaw taala, in fact, tells us, how is the beginning addressed, the beginning is addressed by Allah Subhan Allah saying that Allah be Vickery LA, he took my job, the constant movement of a human being cannot be brought to rest except indeed in the remembrance of God do hearts find rest a Lago. So you want to find the rest and you don't want that constant constriction of movement that you have or constriction you feel in your heart because of that movement, that a person does not find stability, right? Allah says, stability is found in remembrance of God. You'll never find stability, anything else, and also says in the second part of the Quran, stability is

00:43:17--> 00:43:31

also found, as Allah says, that he has created your spouse's from you meaning, however, was created from Adam. Our mother Hawa Eve was created from Adam Adam's Rib

00:43:32--> 00:43:54

in order for what in order for you to find my what the terroir Rama for you to find affection and mercy in that companionship and the test School No, Elijah. So as you find sukoon says you find tranquility and peace in their companionship. That's why it's Paola for those of you who are single get married

00:43:55--> 00:44:33

because you find some some people come up to me and they're like, well why don't I feel like I need to get married I want to go travel the world we travel the world you come spouse was prom. I want to do this I want to go has to do it. What you What do you think you're missing out on except that you've adopted the western standard and mentality and notion that for some reason you're you're restricted, if you're anchored or or shackled by marriage, this is this is nonsense. In fact, that increases you brought brings you a sense of happiness, and sharing your moments of, of happiness with someone else is a form of happiness in and of itself. And Allah Himself says with tests going

00:44:33--> 00:44:37

on, so that you have a sense of tranquility and peace with each other.

00:44:38--> 00:44:48

Right. So, those are the two forms that give tranquility to a human being I mentioned in the Quran, remembrance of Allah and companionship in,

00:44:49--> 00:45:00

in espouse. And then the second portion, which is called called itself comes word from the word that means yet akala which is constantly changing and turning, in fact,

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

like that they mentioned that the boiling of a pot is comes from the same word. You know how the pot boils, that comes from the sandwich SubhanAllah. So that rest and and that constant change must be tempered by dua to Allah subhanaw taala. Constantly, that Oh Allah, the Turner of the hearts because those hearts are in the hands of the Most Merciful. He changes them as he wishes. So we ask Allah the one who controls our hearts to keep our hearts firm on his way of life. following their example and possessing deep knowledge regarding Allah, there can be no doubt that the prophets were the most knowledgeable regarding Allah subhanaw taala. Sometimes some people come and they say, you know,

00:45:41--> 00:46:23

they're going through such and such difficulty, such and such difficulty, and they're expecting answers that are material, physical, but in reality that a lot of those answers start off with something metaphysical and spiritual. A lot of us start having more certainty and conviction in the material than we do in this in the spiritual amendment metaphysical. So, if we fix the metaphysical and the spiritual, the material comes thereafter, right? They go together. And this is important that one increases their knowledge of Allah because knowledge increases conviction. And the more one has conviction of Allah subhanaw taala, the more they will try to seek the means that Allah subhanaw

00:46:23--> 00:46:43

taala has has given to them. So he says the more a servant knows about their Lord, the more they revered him and increases in worship, fear and sincerity and love to his Lord, Allah granted his high status, his chosen servants, the prophets and messengers, they received the status to the perfect knowledge of His names and attributes, therefore, they became worthy of being emulated.

00:46:48--> 00:47:12

Even fame, he says, quote, There is no path to happiness and success in this world, or the hereafter, except that the hands of messengers, and there's no way to determine good from bad except through their teachings. Why? Because they're, they're the one who brought the divine criteria, and one of the names of the Quran isn't for Khan Academy is the criteria and to know what's right and what's wrong. If we sit here start discussing what's right and wrong amongst us, no two people will agree.

00:47:13--> 00:47:33

Right? That's why when you when you when you bring morality to based on majority vote, of course, people are not going to agree, there's going to be animosity, even amongst others. But what we claim is that Allah subhanaw, Taala has given us the ultimate criterion of morality and what's right and wrong, not even the hands of human beings. God.

00:47:35--> 00:47:55

That's it. So if you believe in God, and if you don't believe in God, let's have a let's have a discussion. Why don't you believe in God? Let's discuss that that notion. And then God has to send revelation if you believe in him, it has to have there can't be an all perfect being that created all this perfection, and then tell you what to do with your life. Do you ever go to a college classroom? And then you use you just sit there?

00:47:56--> 00:48:22

No, you wait for who the professor, the professor comes and gives you what the syllabus, the syllabus tells you you want to pass? Here's an A, this is what you have to do you want to just get by this is what you do. You want to get a B, you'll do this, if you're not going to do any of these things, you're gonna fail. And then what are you going to say, well, I don't care about this class, I don't care what you know, you paid the money to be there. You're waiting for a degree that is based on you passing and then you're going to sit there and argue about why why the fact that you should be there in first place. Yes, human beings are like this with life.

00:48:23--> 00:48:39

And it's like, violated to why should I worship God, even one person even said out of their religions, even if I knew God existed, I wouldn't work. I don't want to worship them. Well, I swear to you, someone said this, literally, even if I knew God existed, I don't want to worship them.

00:48:40--> 00:49:11

To the level of belligerency Allah says in the Quran anyway, you know, we say to them, we know we know you know why Allah says the Cordoba kana in Santa Clara Shangela. Allah said in the Quran, and indeed, man is the highest form of argument in argumentative and belligerency. So yeah, no problem we all got by the way, Allah said that also about you. So don't worry. People like this they exists. And that's why chasing after after human beings just don't tie yourself who was the soul to the prophets.

00:49:13--> 00:49:32

You deliver, they don't want to accept move on with your life. Sometimes there might be your own family, a lot of just make dua for them. Sometimes you only have got your up and out, I'll teach you something, oh, this is something is difficult to even implement yourself. I know people Subhanallah they try their entire life with their parents.

00:49:33--> 00:49:34


00:49:35--> 00:50:00

he said this person accepted Islam. He said that every time I would get close with my father, on accepting Islam and the truth of Islam, some crazy muslim criminal would do something that makes the news. And what does the news do? Blame all of Muslims and these crazy people and blah, blah, blah. You know, like these people don't have any now but don't have any shame at all. Even the things that they get away with. If I'm wrong.

00:50:00--> 00:50:07

Some said one of those sentences he would have in prison for life in America, but why do they get get away with it? Because, you know, you know, you know anyway.

00:50:08--> 00:50:13

So he says that that one thing that would make the news would actually

00:50:15--> 00:50:32

make that the father hate Islam. That one he's like all of the work I've been doing. And he said, in his words, 24 years trying with this man, 24 years, it's accepted Islam. And he said, one guy would do some crazy thing and it's blamed on a salmon he would come to me say, Oh, this is the slum you're talking about.

00:50:34--> 00:50:42

This is the belief that you that you think is the belief of peace and saving and all as salvation. So he said it would destroy everything I've ever done.

00:50:43--> 00:51:00

In that one moment, so then all it starts over again. No, this is not you know, that's not it. These people will justify and use religion for anything to claim that they're doing these atrocities, just like people do that with nationalism. People do that with everything, right? People do that with capitalism. Now, you know,

00:51:02--> 00:51:10

to the extent that there's a revival, there's a revival. And this is by statistic. People actually aborting their babies. If it's not a it's not a boy.

00:51:12--> 00:51:22

Wallah, it's on the News, ABC News. The exact thing Islam came to get rid of in the Mexican society because they would bury their daughters alive is being revived here in our society.

00:51:23--> 00:51:36

Can you imagine this will I will show to you, I when I read it on my skin, like, I didn't know what to do, I read it. And I was just like, this is really crazy. People actually aborting children, because they're not the right gender.

00:51:37--> 00:52:13

Now, however, la cote La Bella, what the hell you don't think that the ignorance of humanity is just somehow more sophisticated, just as different words, they just have neckties now, and suits, but the same oppression exists in humanity. And that's why when you read the Quran, you know the life of the prophets I sent him, you see how the ills of society were, were remedied by God by Allah subhanaw taala, there will be timeless. And that's why in reality, if you think about it, Islam is Islam is timeless to such an extent. It's the only thing remaining on this earth that calls for morality, with, with direct

00:52:14--> 00:52:22

connection to Revelation, there's nothing remains that that actually has the level of conviction as Muslims do. We have to understand this find it.

00:52:24--> 00:52:59

And hamdulillah with there's other faith groups that we need to work with as well who believe in that same morality among the Christians and others in sha Allah, that we can you know, have alliances with that have at least the same beliefs that we stem from anyway. So is there is no way to determine good from bad except through their teachings. Allah's pleasure this has been all time, Allah's pleasure is never gained except through their example. Good action scenes and manners are only attained through the guidance they brought because why we believe Allah is the one that dictates how and what the path of salvation is. Somebody can say I will determine that for myself.

00:52:59--> 00:53:37

It's tantamount to saying you created yourself. You believe there's a creator? Why and why not? If you believe that you created yourself, I'm Holly Coleman ReShade I'm humble Harlequin, I'm halacha Samoa Tula Bella, you cannot Allah says that the Quran Do you think you were created or you created yourself? Are you are you created from nothing, you will never have certainty. One of the Sahaba when he heard this, this, at least is being recited. He said, I felt like my chest was going to my heart was going to come out of my chest, out of the powerful nature of these if why we take this for granted. Because we sit there with certainty Allah exists, you're going to send I'm going to send

00:53:37--> 00:54:13

but at the end of the day, in the back of your head, there is a God there is a recompense there's time for forgiveness and mercy. Imagine a person who lives who've lived their entire life, they don't have certainty of anything. They're searching. They're looking for the truth. And Allah says what you will never have certainty. You go on this way. You don't know who created you, you think you created yourself or you were created from nothing. Those are the only three choices. You will never have certainty in your life to this affected that companion. And he accepted Islam. He says you know what, that's that's very, very true, who the creator is the one that will give us purpose.

00:54:14--> 00:54:15

And he says,

00:54:16--> 00:54:50

If enough time the profits or the scale by which our actions sayings and manners must be weighed almost kind of SEIU Halloween and wealthy Allah wealthy order sort order miracle fund that I'm fishing for to do who will Allah he will also in concert, we want to be liable yo Mila, Allah, Allah says, Oh, you believe obey Allah and His messenger and those who have authority over you. Those have authority over you. The scholars mentioned that it's the scholars, meaning the scholars are those who teach us what is right and wrong. Allah says in the Quran. First, they can confirm that Adam will ask the people of the reminder, the scholars if you don't know the last part that it says that

00:54:50--> 00:54:59

for you to understand this faith, it has to go through the source of of knowledge that was in the same connective chain that learned

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

This faith from the Prophet Muhammad sigh sentimental rd. And just like Gibreel, the the Holy Spirit the angel was the one who delivered the guidance of the Prophet Muhammad dilemma. The scholars also received that guidance from the Prophet, his companions, and thereafter in successive generations, so there's an epistemic snad. The understanding of our deen is just as protected as the text itself. So no one can come here and come with understandings, deriving things from their own heads, with no principles, no connection to that tradition, no connection to the Prophet Muhammad sai Selim out of their own will. And by the way, if you see this,

00:55:37--> 00:55:41

if you see this, this is how many people of other faiths discuss faith.

00:55:42--> 00:56:12

What I think from my own head, literally, they open the text and they'll just start talking. Where did you get this from? Well, this is what I understand from it, okay, you understand, I understand, our understandings are never going to agree. But if our understanding comes from Jesus from the Prophet, Mohammed Speiser, here I'll show you use the chain of transmission. This is what the Prophet Muhammad said, explained it this way. And by the way, one person accepted the sound that way. So every time we we will talk to Muslims, I'm telling them something, I think, and they're showing me this is what this is what our texts say, This is what the Prophet says.

00:56:14--> 00:56:16

So he says, we are.

00:56:17--> 00:56:25

And their example is the criteria in between people have guidance and those of misguidance. In real time continues, we are in need of following their example more than a body needs its soul.

00:56:27--> 00:57:01

And more than an eye needs like to be able to see, in fact, every decreed obligation is surpassed by the obligation to follow the example of the prophets if we neglect doing so, for the blinking of an eye, then our hearts will become corrupt just like fish becomes just like fish pass when our fish die when they are taken out of water. Since happiness in this life and the hereafter is linked with following the example of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem, a wise person is the one who seeks their own happiness and salvation, they must gain enough knowledge regarding the prophets guidance and biography. This way, they become a true follower and joins the party of the Prophet Muhammad, I saw

00:57:01--> 00:57:38

some of the believers who passed of course throughout history who follow Jesus who followed Musa Moses followed. If you by the way, if you study if you can study the lives of the apostles who claim to be followers of Jesus, how many of them had happy lives until the end? None of them did. They were, they were exiled, they were tortured, they were maimed, they were killed, they were expelled, they were dispelled. This is just the the attitude of believers throughout history. Right. And at the end of the day, yes, many of them are achieved at the end of their lives after a long journey of hardship. Allah granted them those promises.

00:57:39--> 00:57:56

Truly, and then they were awesome. At the end, they killed many of them, many of them became shorter. Why? Because the religions of the deen that Allah subhanaw taala gave the Saudi Saddam was changed, as you all know, was changed by the hands of men. And

00:57:58--> 00:57:58

now we're gonna get to history.

00:58:01--> 00:58:09

And 333 C II, in the city known as Nicaea, in Turkey, known today as Izmir.

00:58:10--> 00:58:40

This city was known as the capital of the Byzantine Roman Empire. The Roman Emperor used to gather a conference of Christian leaders in the city. And they would have a World Christian conference of all of the denominations and the leaders of those denominations, basically of dictating what was doctrine, what was the belief of Christians, this historical facts, I had to go typing Wikipedia, go buy books, this is historical fact without any kind of mention.

00:58:41--> 00:58:50

And 330, if you see was another Nicene Council at the end of the council, they would publish their their conclusions, they would call it the Nicene Creed.

00:58:52--> 00:59:06

At the end of this council, the discussion point was What is this the status of the divinity of Jesus? What is Jesus's status in Christianity? Was he a man was he a What was God? Was he the son, what was he?

00:59:07--> 00:59:14

And that Nicene Council is where they decided that he was one of three.

00:59:15--> 00:59:21

The Trinity. The Trinity was decided in this Nicene Council and 333, three and 30. To see

00:59:22--> 00:59:29

that council is what dictated Christian doctrine. We believe today is the Trinity, that specific Council except

00:59:31--> 00:59:47

a few groups of them, those few groups revolted. And they said This is blasphemy tantamount to being against the faith that Jesus taught. Guess what happened to them, they were murdered, they were slaughtered, they were killed all of them

00:59:48--> 00:59:59

and the remnants of them who could run away and their followers that did not go, they remained on Earth. They remained on Earth and from among them were that

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

Teachers of Salamanca Pharisee. So Mal Pharisee, who was a Persian man and in Persia, who

01:00:09--> 01:00:45

came across some of these true believers who believe that Jesus was a prophet and messenger, among the true Christians, the true believers and the deen of Allah. That day he heard them speaking and praying, and he was enamored by them, and he stayed with them. And he believed in them. And he went to his father and said, what we believe is falsehood. Zoroastrianism believes in two gods, so this is all falsehood. So his father became afraid from he locked him in the house. So he sent a message to them saying, if another caravan comes here, let me know and I will run away. So he ran away from home. And he went to go seek the truth with these people. He studied with a number of them, a number

01:00:45--> 01:00:51

of their teachers, it's a long story, it's another time, but you can learn about it in Sharla. And some Malfatti eventually ends up in media.

01:00:53--> 01:01:13

And that's where he meets the Prophet Muhammad says, but he was a true believer in ASA, first, Persian convert to two prophets. First Terry, Sally Sarah, and believing his true message, and then to the Prophet Muhammad sighs. That's why the Prophet loved him so much, because he was a seeker of Truth. And that's why he said, Salman bin

01:01:14--> 01:01:18

Salman is from amongst us the family of the Prophet Muhammad Ali Santosa.

01:01:21--> 01:01:21


01:01:23--> 01:01:25

you heard from other religions?

01:01:27--> 01:01:28

He's a true prophet. Right?

01:01:31--> 01:01:41

Right. 100%. And he heard the signs of what the true prophet would be. And they all told him this. They said, there's there's that the true prophet in his time is coming.

01:01:42--> 01:01:49

So that's what made him believe when he saw him, there were certain signs, and then surely you can look into the story more closely. But

01:01:50--> 01:02:11

the whole point of the story was that humanity is searching, humanity searching, whether they admit it or they don't. People have a spiritual vacuum in their hearts, Willa, they have spiritual vacuums, we have to tap into their spiritual vacuums with a vernacular and language that they understand.

01:02:13--> 01:02:37

With a language they understand if if you speak to them in a language that they don't understand, I'm talking about the language of people today. They will not understand faith, except as possibly a Judeo Christian understanding of religion. And what is that usually referred to as very closed minded people that enforce on on them religion and and

01:02:39--> 01:02:53

a, what they consider closed mindedness, because they don't have they have never been approached about the true nature of faith, as our faith teaches us, in this rational and emotional, spiritual way.

01:02:54--> 01:03:28

And that's what the Prophet says I'm in essence, was an exemplar for when he spent time with people, he touched them emotionally. And that essence, and that emotional attachment comes from a building of trust, a building of genuineness, those two things are extremely important. Those two things are the marks of truth. When you've spent time with enough people, they will actually feel a sense of genuineness, and they will ask you like what is it that you believe? Why is it that you believe and then you can expound based on those things and offer them of course if you have the opportunity to offer them

01:03:33--> 01:04:02

Okay, so he gives you a shift when he goes into the many reasons why we should follow the Prophet system as a prime example. I'm just gonna read you the headings because most of these have been discussed in great detail you already know them. Because the prophets I send them out was not allowed to come in major fault, he would be corrected by Allah subhanaw taala if the prophet ever were to make a mistake, it was a teaching for for Muhammad Seisen for humanity. So if you made a mistake, Allah corrected him to show that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who is the ultimate

01:04:03--> 01:04:13

the ultimate lawmaker, and the also the one who will correct even if the prophet I saw somewhere to make a mistake, hence, he was Massell he was

01:04:15--> 01:04:17

what's muscleman in English?

01:04:18--> 01:04:19

protected but there's a there's word

01:04:22--> 01:04:26

innocent no masam is comes from Esma Hmm.

01:04:27--> 01:04:31

Preventive preventive. It starts with an eye.

01:04:33--> 01:04:33

What's the

01:04:35--> 01:04:41

immune Thank you immune? No, no, it's immune. It's another word for the night.

01:04:43--> 01:04:45

Law. infallible,

01:04:47--> 01:04:57

infallible, okay. So the prophets, I said was infallible and fallible, meaning that he is not allowed to commit a major mistake, hence why he was faultless.

01:04:58--> 01:05:00

The second, the prophets I said was one

01:05:00--> 01:05:16

was the embodiment of wisdom Hekima and that's why I lost her that I said that he has sent a Prophet from among you. Who will you recite the words of Allah to you, and will teach will purify you will use Akiko why you are limo como Kitab when Hikmah

01:05:18--> 01:05:49

he will then teach you the book, what to do what not to do, and he will teach you the Hekima Hekla means wisdom. What is hikma to put the book in the right place at the right time in the right manner in the right way. And that's what wisdom means. What is wisdom and hikma and this is why it is the son of the Prophet Muhammad is outside. So he will teach us with His wisdom. Following the prophets examples the condition of achieving success and victory. The prophets have served as example in all situations prophesy salams biographies necessary to follow.

01:05:50--> 01:05:51


01:05:54--> 01:06:07

the prophet Ali Sato CERAM was the best exemplar of manners, and hence why we say that the the most blessed, divine character development programming in the world is from Allah.

01:06:08--> 01:06:09


01:06:11--> 01:06:22

Allah subhanaw taala himself said about the prophets I said, I'm indeed your way NACA la hurricane Harvey, indeed, you're on the most loftiest and greatest moral character,

01:06:24--> 01:06:44

Sophia of the aligner, the wife of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, I said, I have never seen anybody with better manners than the messengers of Lysa. And so the Lord who said, I served the Prophet Muhammad SAW them for nine years meaning the moment he entered Medina, until the moment the president passed away on us with with was with him, was 10 years. But he meant nine years since the time that he started serving until the Prophet saw seven passed away.

01:06:45--> 01:06:57

During those years, he never asked as to why I did this, or why I didn't do that out of his beautiful manners, meaning, not, not the question why, you know, there's difference between wire Hey, why are you doing that?

01:06:58--> 01:07:12

Not asking, Hey, you mind a few weeks, that's different. The Prophet says and didn't have the attitude of zijin he wouldn't chide people, especially a young man who was was with the Prophet system as a servant.

01:07:13--> 01:07:47

And I said the prophets I sent him I had the best behavior and manners of all one day he sent me somewhere to do some business. He was a young kid. And he said, Here, deliver this and come back to me. But I said to myself, I won't go now although I did eventually intend to go to where he commanded. So he said, I came to the market on my way, past by some children playing and suddenly he started playing, I started playing with him. The kid he forgets, take out the trash. Yeah, okay, go play card or whatever, right? Start playing video games. I was like, then I tell you all, I forgot it completely. You know, we do that too as before. So sometimes you forget something that somebody

01:07:47--> 01:07:53

tells you to do something the prophets I send them a appeared from behind me and held and held my neck.

01:07:54--> 01:07:56

Sign is like, Okay, I'm dead close, right.

01:07:58--> 01:08:00

And he said, one is did you go where I told you to go?

01:08:02--> 01:08:17

And he said this with a smile and just asked him, he didn't say, didn't I tell you? Why are you late? Look at the emotional intelligence and like, now we're gonna apply Mikael Smith's book. Number one, emotional awareness, and number two, body language.

01:08:18--> 01:08:45

Number one emotional awareness is that he understands this is a kid, he got distracted. Number two body languages, he did not grab his head and pull them to the ground. And he simply had looked at the tone, just by holding him on his neck shows you that this is a serious issue, but at the same time, gentleness delivers the message. And then you have the actual form of communication, which is asking him without assumption,

01:08:46--> 01:09:23

asking without assumption, why didn't you did he? First of all, just to make sure don't make an assumption of people's actions ask. So he said, Did you go where I told you to go? Did you say what did you mean this when you said it? Or what did you mean by what you said? Look at those two things. If you memorize those things, you saw probably a lot of problems. Sometimes people don't say what you think they mean based on those assumptions that you have. So honest, got the point without the prophets I sent me was saying it because why Look, listen. If the prophets I sent him a yelled at him, do you think that would have solved anything? No, it might have caused increased resentment.

01:09:24--> 01:09:46

And number two, what is the point of disciplining if it loses the person to begin with? So he simply got that message across by telling him and reminding him of what he needed to do and finally to see the hospital which is that honest did what the promises and didn't What do you mean he came back and said hello, so beautiful honest, actually reported this as a Hadith from the lesson he learned.

01:09:48--> 01:09:49

So he said, I will go now a prophet of Allah.

01:09:52--> 01:09:59

Allah subhanaw taala and he says he says salam was also an example and tolerance Allah Hydra says Fabiola. Hemmati min Allah He Lin tele Han

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

So let's Nimrod by the mercy of Allah you are lenient with them. And if we know Quinta fogliano that either Calbee Landford one helping Holic and if you were had been rude in speech and harsh in hearts, they would have this they have, they would have turned away and turn their backs on you. And I said I was walking with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam he was wearing, and that Jelani felt as though he felt is like from Yemen, and Nigerians in that part of the world. And by the way, anything south of Mecca was called Yemen back then. Now Yemen has lines and borders, no anything south of Mecca was Yemen. So Nigerian, which is now in the current Arabian kingdom, it was part of Yemen then

01:10:41--> 01:11:20

so anyway, and wearing Yemen wearing the sto, by the way that was gifted to the prophets. I said it was a very expensive, though. It's a very expensive outer cloth. And it's known that the Kings wore Yemeni shoes and Yemeni clothing, basically, it's like a Gucci like cloth, right? Just be honest. Okay. So when he was wearing this, it had rough sides. But a Bedouin came on the profit, meaning it was it was made from coarse material. It wasn't just super soft, it was coarse on the sides. So he said a Bedouin came to the Prophet Muhammad SAW salmon, you know, people from the desert, they're rough on the on the edges, as they say here in Texas, right, a little bit rough on the edges. So he

01:11:20--> 01:11:40

said he came and pulled the prophets I sent him by his robe, very roughly, and pulled him from his back. So he said, I looked at the side of the prophesy centum is neck from where it was pulled. And the side of the robe of the Prophet SAW said left a mark on his neck from the strong pole.

01:11:41--> 01:11:48

But he then said, Oh, Mohamed, you didn't say Oh, Prophet, Oh, beloved, he said, Oh, Muhammad, so I said, Give me some of Allah's money that you have

01:11:51--> 01:11:57

can't get any rougher than this. But the Prophet salallahu audio cinema looked at him. He smiled.

01:11:58--> 01:12:00

And he ordered that he be given something

01:12:01--> 01:12:03

you got to me, you hear something?

01:12:04--> 01:12:27

Maybe not something nice, right? But the prophet I thought Sam exemplified his tolerance. Even in these moments, he saw some was an example in kindness and mercy Allah subhanaw taala said about him. And We have not sent you as, except as a mercy to the world without or the alarm who said one night the message, said one night the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam prayed and continue to recite the verse

01:12:28--> 01:12:40

where Allah subhanaw taala says, If you should punish them, indeed you are, they are Your servants. And if you forgive them, indeed it is you was the exalted the Almighty, the always. This is a job and he said, he said, I'm on the Day of Judgment.

01:12:41--> 01:12:43

Allah will, Allah.

01:12:45--> 01:12:50

Allah will ask you he said did you commanded them to? Did you command them to?

01:12:52--> 01:13:24

To worship you and your mother? And the Saudis said, I will say to Allah subhanaw taala I commanded them with what you commanded me to tell them, which was to worship one Lord, one God, and if you should punish them, they are Your servants, and if you forgive them, and indeed it is you who is Exalted in Might and the all wise, so the Prophet Muhammad SAW some would repeat the same words that a Saudi Saddam was saying, out of out of

01:13:25--> 01:13:37

concern for his own OMA, because isa would say that, then he would say it for himself. So the Prophet saw Sam spent the entire night repeating this idea and making the following dua

01:13:39--> 01:13:55

until morning he sigh Selma said, I asked my lord to permit me to intercede for my nation, he the exalted granted me my wish, by Allah's Will I will intercede for whoever takes no partners with Allah, when whoever does not commit to disbelief, Prophesy son will intercede for you.

01:13:57--> 01:14:18

And this is why the another narration that we mentioned, we will end with this Inshallah, the other narration that we mentioned, or the other Hadith, and that is that the prophets I said, Miss that I was given a choice between half of my own mother being granted paradise or chef or intercession. So he said, I chose chef out.

01:14:20--> 01:14:27

I chose to, meaning half of the Muslim ummah, is not enough to how much the prophets are similar to see for people.

01:14:28--> 01:14:39

What you see for people, what is this intercession This is an this intercession is the prophets I am asking Allah subhanaw taala not to punish someone because of their belief, not to

01:14:40--> 01:14:59

diminish them and their reward but actually to increase them. So if a person has a level of paradise, there's intercession the prophets of them would ask for increased for them. This will be a station on the Day of Judgment. Only the prophet is also Sam and the other prophets will have their own for their own nation prophecies and will have last Hadith will cover inshallah today

01:15:00--> 01:15:10

Malik Ibn who waited said we came to the messenger SallAllahu sallam, we were all young men of nearly equal ages. We stayed for him for we stayed with him for 20 nights, and we forgot our families.

01:15:12--> 01:15:33

So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reminded us, like, you have to go back home. And he they described him Canada, FIFA and Rahima. He was extremely kind and tender hearted, and we loved his company to stay with him. And he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them go back to go back to your families.

01:15:34--> 01:15:37

For maroon while the moon, so teach them

01:15:38--> 01:15:39

the prayer.

01:15:40--> 01:15:43

Teach them to prayer, meaning what connects them to Allah subhanaw taala.

01:15:45--> 01:16:16

Find whatever means you have to connect the hearts of others to Allah. And if you have that ability, you can do that through many ways. One of the best ways is the life of the prophet. Listen, try to get them to listen to the seed of Rasul Allah says Allah about his life, because people's hearts will become soft and just by knowing this man. And of course, like we said, just like Allah teaches the lessons of theology, through stories, we will understand that people will draw closer to their Lord, through the story of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his example

01:16:17--> 01:16:53

salAllahu alayhi wasallam We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us the companionship of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam and to allow us to be those who follow the example of the prophets I send them in our own example and to follow in our, in our actions before our statements to make us of those that even in our moments of questioning in our moments of difficulty and struggle, that we don't give up hope in the Mercy of Allah and turn to him through the way our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to May Allah azza wa jal increase our rank and remove from us our worries and to bless us with a community that will be a shining light of example, for others in

01:16:53--> 01:17:27

the guidance of the prophet muhammad ali se, will ask how to remove the oppression from those of our brothers and sisters who are facing hardship, in Kashmir and in Burma, and Uighur and China and Pakistan and Afghanistan and Somalia and Yemen and Syria and in Iraq. And all in Palestine and all the places where Muslim brothers and sisters suffer and in India, may Allah azza wa jal allow us to be those who bring justice and truth and to be of those that were like our prophets I saw different I mean those who are truthful and those who are trustworthy well that won't have any lateral movement of Salah sentiment I have you been what have you? But it also means clinical decrescendo.

01:17:27--> 01:17:30

Hola. Hola. Hola. Luca, what do we like or dislike
