Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah
Allahumma salli wa sallam and how do you know Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa cinema? Well slowly lahoma wa Sallim wa barakaatuh Have you been enormous ly cinema fidelity? Along with Sunday we'll study meditation, Habib and I want to be in a Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Kula Mercado de que una la wakulla offer on the grill off alone. All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa 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 reliance. It is to him we only turn to for our true guidance. We asked him to send his peace, his blessings, His mercy on the best of human beings and prophets,
Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, on whom he prays until the very end of our days. And we asked him for steadfastness, guidance, mercy, and to never lead us astray and for him to save us on Judgement Day. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in a beautiful verse in chapter 17, verse nine of the hold on after hanging out with the villa Humana shaytani r rajim. In
de la te Occoquan while you bet she'll remote meaning while you brush your own remote meaning and levena Luna slowly has
cubby long last part that says surely this Quran indeed this Koran certainly this Quran guide to that which is most upright and gives good news to the believers who do good and they will receive a mighty and great reward. Allah Subhana Allah says in this particular verse, that this Quran yeah de la te a qualm will guide to that which is the most upright meaning will make the affairs of all of humanity upright. And it will also be guiding only the upright people who want to seek goodness people who want to seek rectification, people who want guidance, it will be given to them. And this Quran will benefit humanity for those who seek it, who seek that guidance. And that is why the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said in a number of Hadith that this Koran will be either in evidence for people or in evidence against them. We as Muslim, the Muslim nation, we believe that Allah subhana wa tada has given humanity, one faith to believe in that faith is the faith in one God, one creator, one almighty. And that faith is given to Adam alayhis salam, as he said wave order, bucatini mela ekati in Ninja roofing all the honey for a loss partner says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when we said to Mohammed Ali Salim. And when Allah our Lord said to the angels, that we will send on this earth, a honey for a honey FDA has a number of meanings. Number
one, someone who is going to be a deputy or a representative of, of whom Allah subhanho wa Tada, someone who will be commissioned with a task, someone who is going to come in successive generations, someone who will be a leader of this objective of this task, and our collective father, the father of humanity, and the father of the believers, of course.
And all of humanity was given this task, which is to be a representative of the true faith, of the objective of true faith for all of humanity. So this is something that started with Adam and Eve Sam, and went to all the way to a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our Prophet Mohammed on a salatu salam, who interestingly enough is, as we know, the last prophet and messenger and in
That line of prophets and messengers, our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is known as the halifa. Allah, Allah, Allah Allah. He's the one who is the final deputy and representative of Allah subhanho wa Taala of this message of the prophets. And that is why, what is the very first successor of the Prophet Mohammed cinema called?
Was he called?
Khalifa? Isn't that right? So that is the idea that the purpose or the message behind the Quran, and why Allah sent the prophets and messengers with one faith to believe in God Almighty, and to turn to Him does not end with the prophets, but rather it is carried on by the believers. And that is why the first leader of them and the subsequent leaders of the Muslims, they're called the hanifa, the halifa meaning what the one who will, who will implement the objective or the reasoning or the message of why Allah subhanaw taala sent people and this is why
this Koran and this messenger, these two things, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that they will be our intercessors they will be those who will intercede for us first and foremost, this idea of intercession shift is something that not only is in the in the afterlife, but is also in this life is the prophets. I saw them interceding in your life is the Quran playing a role and interceding in your life and in bettering it or not. And this is something that's powerful, because how many of us we claim and we love Allah and His messenger and the Quran, but the Quran is not part of our lives. The Quran is something you put on the top shelf. The Quran is something that, you know, you when
when Ramadan comes, you take it down, you dust it off, and then you start to recite it then, but one of the great scholars of Islam, Imam Adnan Mubarak, he said I was
spoken speaking to Salim al McKee. And he said that he heard from Hassan Albus, the great scholars of Islam, all of them they pass down this message. They said, whoever wishes to know who they are, let them present themselves to the Quran.
If you want to know who you truly are, present yourself to the Quran, what is your relationship with the Quran? What is your relationship with this book? What is your relationship with this khilafah
khilafah meaning this objective, the reasoning why the prophets and messengers came and environment has an adversity, the same man who said this, he also said he said adhere to the book of Allah. pursue whatever is of the laws commandments, be people of reflecting and understanding. May Allah have mercy on the person, the slave of Allah, who presents themselves to the actions of the book of Allah Almighty and majestic, if they conform to the book of Allah. He praises alone, he thinks I'm saying Hamdulillah, who has guided my life, to be in accordance with his book, but if it is opposite to the book of Allah, the mighty and majestic, he tides himself, he tries to rectify himself, he
tries to correct themselves and that is how this Quran will be in effect in his life. And this is why if the Quran is not an intercessor in your life, in this world, how can it intercede in your life in the next this Quran? If it's not playing an active role in correcting our attitude, our character, then how will it correct us in the hereafter? If this quote on is not a means for us to bring newness to Allah this life? How will it be bring newness meaning shefa? Because that's what it's doing in the next life? And how if we don't connect to our Prophet Mohammed sighs lm in this life, how can then we expect us to connect with him in the next? This is what essentially Ma'am,
hustle and bustle he was telling us. And I want you all to understand something very important. We in modernity 2019. Now almost 2020 as Muslims suffer from something very serious, and that is, we have become too descriptive with our faith and not enough prescriptive.
We worry sometimes more about the letters that are written rather behind the meaning behind them, and the objectives and the message and how we can reach them. And sometimes this is a bad thing, even though we are the nation that preserved the letters of the Koran, as you all know, Mashallah, how many of her father just in this room, how many people who have memorized it from beginning to end for men and women, and that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said something very powerful that teaches us
The prescription of our faith is more stronger than the description.
And what do I mean by that? Sometimes people become so mechanical, about faith, they lose the objectives and the spirit of it. And then we have the opposite extreme as well, people who are seeking the spirit of Islam, but they think that that spirit and objective will not come with any kind of practice or action. There's two extremes. And among the extremes is the Prophet sallallahu. It was sent him a message mentioned. He who recites the Koran, and acts by its contents, his parents will be made to wear a crown on the Day of Judgment, it sparkle will be greater than the light of the sun and the houses of this world were to exist in this world. They would fight over it people
would be going and attacking saying I wanted this crown. So what do you think about the one who performed the action, meaning the one who acts on the Quran in the next life, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned and a powerful Hadith that there will come people saying that All praise is due to Allah The Book of Allah is one among those of you are the best of those among you who will recite it among you will be fair skin and dark skinned, but they will recite the Quran they will be the best among you. This he said recite the Quran and recite it before people will come. They will recite it establishing its letters, they will care more about how you recite
your your hona is off your your med is not long enough, the way you've done that calacatta or the one the hemorrhage is more important. They worry about this these letters, the prophet sly sentiment says he says before people will come they will recite establishing its letters. The way an arrow is stood upright, you try to stick an arrow in the ground and try to make it stand straight. Meaning there'll be very particular he said do this before these people will come they will care more about the letters than what I'm about to mention to you. He says they will come up people who care more about the letters, but their risk citation will not go beyond their throats.
Their citation will not go beyond their throats. They will seek its reward hastily and they will not seek its deferred reward in the hereafter. Eben Amato, the law talent who explained that he discusses this. He says truly we were the beginning of this nation meaning the Sahaba those who preserved this Koran, those who preserved this Islam, those who because of them, Islam reached Hamdulillah, Nigeria and reached all the way to Mongolia and reach them on Astana and reached Burma and the whole world. Now the world is encompassed with that. He said, there would be men amongst the best of the companions of the messengers of Allah sallallahu wasallam, who only had with them one
surah of the Quran. Or so he had one surah or from the Quran or a few of them, but the Koran was heavy on them. And they were given the sustenance of acting according to it. They were blessed with acting according to it, even though they only had one, one chapter of the Quran but it was heavy on them because they knew that they had to act on it. And he says truly the end of this nation meaning the end of Ahmed Mohammed bin Salman, towards the end of times, they will have the Koran light on them. Even the child and the non Arab recite it, but they will not accord it act according to it. Isn't this right? How many of us we have children who memorize the Quran beginning to end and
Alhamdulillah Islam has reached where Arab and non Arab know it beginning to end and they recited with perfection, but where is the implementation and action behind it? We are a nation that needs to turn back to this concept. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said hey recoome man allemaal haoran metalla ercolano Allah who the best of you the best of the nations are those who teach the Koran who learned the Quran and they teach it. Now the question is the prophets I send them as one of my teachers in Medina. He said the prophets I said I did not say Cairo komen hospital for Anwar fava.
The Prophet did not say the best of you are those who memorize the Quran and taught its memorization. This is part of it. had the best of you that learn the Koran understand the Quran I LeMond put on. He learned the Quran she learned the depths of the meaning of the Quran, the objectives of the Quran, and they implemented in their lives. This is the this is the point of it. That is why I want you all to understand a story of our mobile hip hop out of the old town who took him 12 years to memorize sort of tobacco.
You'd like 1212 years. Maybe if you focus you could do it in a week.
Maybe if you have some Tajweed problems, maybe two, three months, if you really try. Why did it take him 12 years because they said we would recite three verses. We would not move past them until we implemented in our lives.
These verses at a time. The question is how many of us we open the Quran, and we said, we took our lives and we put it and compared it against the Quran. How is my life in comparison to what I am reading? When Allah says Ofu will
fulfill your covenants in your trusts. When Allah subhanho wa Taala says, to be the best to those around you that
Allah subhanaw taala says those who are the closest to you could have been orange or ham, or those who are most deserving of your attention. Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Nisa, that oral or ham Allah now the homi Bhabha, those who are
closest of kin to you are those most deserving of you there prior to your attention and your interaction. And this is why my brothers and sisters, one of the things that we need to learn and making the Quran prescriptive is the life of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. I want you all to understand this statement I'm about to make to you. The Quran is revelation from Allah.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam example is the application of Revelation. We understand how to apply this book. If it wasn't for Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how would you and I know how to apply it in 2019? Nigeria? How would you do that? Your understanding is different from hers, hers is different from the other ones, no one would understand how we do we do so and we would differ and that is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his life and Sunnah is the basis of unity of understanding this revelation. And lastly, the companions of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the righteous scholars that followed them.
Understood its interpretation. Why? Because they witnessed revelation. And they witnessed its application.
they witnessed revelation, they saw it, and they witnessed this application. If it says, I, every single verse of the Quran, I have the Quran, I know where it was revealed how it was revealed. And I asked the prophets of Allah Hadith about showing you that they know the context of how we implement this Koran and understand it. And that is why our current modern lives have to be based on the principles derived from the prophets lessons life, as understood by those who have the greatest of scholars, starting with the earliest generations who understood it the best. And that does not mean that we all implement the Arabian culture of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at that time,
no one asked us of this. No one said this. And the visa laws them didn't say everyone has to act like the Arabian culture of that time, but rather the principles that come from the life of them the use of a law to sell them that is contextualized, to our environment, to our time and to our place. And this is how we understand the Quran, in interceding in our lives. And this is done my brothers and sisters with three very important steps I want to I want to discuss with you. Number one, you have to know your history. You have to know your history. I am very, very shocked and surprised that when I meet many of my Nigerian brothers and sisters, that they come to Oman, I speak to them. I
asked them Do you know your history? And some of them say no, we did not take history in school. Neither did we study it. I said Do you know the history of the Muslims in Nigeria, the Sokoto Caliphate and Othman danfo do and how much you all gave to this oma? And many of them say no, we just know the names.
We just know the names. We don't know our history. We don't know where we came from. We don't know the contributions of Nigeria, to the Muslim ummah. This is a tragedy. You have to know where you came from. As the great scholar Malcolm X. Allah said, if you don't know where you came from, how can you then know where you're going? Even Haldane said the same thing, the great scholar of history. He said, If we don't know where we came from, how then do we know where to go? If you don't know your contributions of the past, you will always look to someone else who you think is better than them that will give you contribution. And that is why the colonizers of Nigeria that came here,
do you know the mentality that they came, these people need us they need this civilization we give to them. This is the kind of mentality of savior complex that they had. Not knowing that they actually put us back because of colonization, not move this forward. We had as a Muslim
And the Muslims of Nigeria, the progress that they took away, they stole the resources and they took away from us. You need to know your history because this is implementing the hold on and making it come alive and understanding how these people lived Islam and how they made the Quran the center of their lives. You need to know your history, and that is two ways. Number one, the beginning. The life of the prophet SAW Selim and the whole affair Rashidi. That's where we draw our Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, his principles and examples he said la can be so nutty was so not
an hola hola Rashid in El Medina. membre de La Habra. nawada and he said la come stick, hold, hold firmly bite, even he said is also on hold firmly to my sadhana, my practice my example and the example of the son of the son of the Hoda, Rashid de la de Do you know why they're called Rashid in the word Rosh Rashid Arish comes from the one who their words are equal to their actions. They were men and women of their words, the deal or the generation of the Sahaba. And now where do we live a people that make promises and they don't fulfill their statements. And that's why the best of those who are leaders are those who fulfill what they say. And they are, they are with the people and they
act according to their benefit. This is why they're called the Rashi and he called them a third description mahadevi gene, which means those who are rightly guided by Allah subhanaw taala by following the example of the Quran, and the Sunnah of a Nabi sallallahu. So this is the beginning. And the second part is, knowing where we got and how we got here. Knowing your history, knowing from 2019, Nigeria backward, how did we ended up here and why?
so that you can understand what we need to improve on as a nation as a people as a Muslim ummah. That is extremely important. Teach your children this, teach your children your history, teach your children, your contributions, deconstruct the colonization of your of our mentality, thinking that there are people that have better than us. No, we are the ones that can benefit the old man the world. We are a nation that can benefit others, and we take the good from others, and we improve and work together. But this is all found only if you have an integrity and honor and your history. And if you don't, then where is it coming from? Where is it coming from? Who are role models? Where do
we look up to then we start having an inferiority complex over our own selves. The second thing,
first thing is history. The second thing in order to live the hold on and centered in our lives, his importantly, social rectification of yourself
rectifying yourself, your character, your manners, your own a bad those three love your interaction with people. And this is, as psychologists call it today, emotional intelligence and social intelligence, we as a nation are very, very quick to blame the leadership of the world. And that does not mean that we should not hold anyone accountable. But one of the most important things I want to teach you all and discuss with my brothers and sisters, is the statement of the law, the law of town hope
that leaders are only reflective of their own people.
Leaders are only reflective of their own people, if we're not rectifying ourselves, these people out us were the ones that will make up the leadership of tomorrow. If we're not rectifying ourselves in our character, if we're not fulfilling the ties, if we're not being just, if we're not being honest, if we don't have corruption in our own cells, if we don't obey the traffic laws, starting from something simple like this, if we don't pay our servants, before their time that they need to be paid, if we don't try to cheat the system, if we don't try to stop ourselves from cheating our jobs, if we don't live as people of integrity with our families, and honestly, then why do you think then
the leadership of who we may complain about is only reflective of that a man came to complain to the same man a little below Toronto and says listen it for the long haul. He says Then why aren't we as prosperous and great as the time of Abu Bakar in Oman?
Why are we going through all this difficulty and why are we not as great as them? So I'll give him a very nice answer. He said, Listen, they had followers like me, and I have followers like you.
I have followers like you, instead of saying what we can do to improve you're coming here telling me why are we like this.
This is just one of them. Number two, you make your leaders
Ship better, and you hold accountability in order to make it better. And this itself has learned through understanding deeply the soul of the Seal of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and the whole of Arashi. Like we said, its history, and how we got here, it's all tied. And lastly, the third aspect of making the whole on intercessor of this life is where it will take us next. How do you derive principles from what we learned in order to bring benefit to society, bring benefits to where non Muslims will come to us and seek to understand our welfare system in Islam will seek to understand our nonprofit organization and management will seek to understand our leadership because of the
integrity of how we are our as leaders, how we carry ourselves, in our honesty, in our business, they will come to us not only that advancement of sciences, advancement of technology, advancement of social reform and family, family structure, which now the world is suffering from, and Muslims are suffering from because we have abandoned the principles of family structure in Islam. Rather, if we simply go back to what our faith teaches us, you will see the divorce rates in Nigeria start to be fixed with the solution is in Islam. And you will see if we adopt that how others will seek that as well. Ultimately, my brothers and sisters, when we talk about the intercession of the Hereafter,
you have the first limit in this life. You have to you have to make the Prophet fertilize them in the Quran and intercessor in this life, how many of us we raise your hand say yeah, Allah make Al Habib la serata some chef, Your Honor, right? There's even songs about this. But how many of us don't reflect did we ask the Prophet and the Quran to be our chef here in this life first.
Because ultimately, it's only a reflection of what it will do in the next it was only be a reflection of what we'll do in the next and this is what we'll end with inshallah tada is that the intercession of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the end the Quran itself will only be given to those who lived it in this life will only be given to those who live in this life Mandela the ash Pharaoh in Libya, write a last part that says Who is the one who will intercede except by the permission of a law
except by the permission of our Lord and that intercession will be only given for those who live it in this life in the in the way that will lead them with validity here. Allah subhana wa tada mentions to us a beautiful set of of draws at the end of sort of Ania Milan, I want to finish with this and Shaolin share with you this beautiful set of drawings and salata, Anna Milan, is described to us by our Prophet salallahu alaihe salam and a very beautiful Hadith. And this is narrated by Chateau de la Tatiana, some of the tambourine by the name of Abdullah ibn are made. He said that we went to our mother I shot all the logs out on her, and they said to her, could you tell us about one
of the most amazing things you witnessed from Russell last I said,

And then these are the verses of Sora Italian Ron where lots of Hana Watada says to us in the Hulk SMRT will walk the laughing lady when the heart is in real bad indeed in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alteration of the day in the night.

This is the message Our Lord, we have heard the color of true belief who is the caller Mohammed Salah what is the halifa of Allah who brought the Koran and the objective and the reason and the purpose of life while we try to rectify our lives with he said, believe in your Lord alone. So we believe our Lord, forgive our sins absolve us of our misdeeds and our shortcomings and our deficiencies and allow us each to die as one of those who are virtuous and you have accepted when you center the reflection of the Koran like the prophets I said Emma says when you reflect on the verses, and you live them in your modern day to day lives, and the
three ways that I have we have mentioned here, that is when the Quran will become your intercessor that is when the prophets I said Emma says on the Day of Judgment, the Quran will come. And Surah Al Baqarah and surah Alia Moran alone will be a shade for you or two large animals with wings, they will shade you or they will protect you and they will speak for you. And this Koran will even come as in the shape of a of a creature a man who will look radiant, and he will say Who is this person and they will say I am your citation. I'm a citation of the Quran itself. Because the Quran is not created. That's the citation of the Koran that you use to recite and use to act and used to
implement. And the prophets Allah La Jolla said well wait await us all in sha Allah on that day, because of our action and implementing Allah subhanho wa Taala will bless you and I that the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam will serve us with His blessing hand from water of paradise. Whoever drinks this water of Paradise will never be thirsty or hungry again. Why? Because you lived on and served its purpose and its message and the Sunnah of the prophet in this life. Allah will honor you and I that the prophet will serve us in the next meal lawmakers have them Milan makers of those who live the Koran and to live the Sunnah of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and to gather
