Very important, it's something essential to our faith.

00:00:03 --> 00:00:20

It's something the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have focused on to build a Dola to madonia and Islamia to build the prophetic Islamic Society in governance based on the things that we're going to discuss in sha Allah. And Allah subhanho wa Taala ingrained it in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala

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

discuss the characteristic of the most blessed people that would become in themselves role models for not just us but for Islamic countries and societies like this. Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the sacrifices of those who were with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:00:43 --> 00:01:30

and 13 long years of difficulty, hardship, bigotry, attack, persecution, torture, everything imaginable. The more hygiene face a savvy foreigner our own prophet size dilemma who were protected by him, and they protected him. And these people were mentioned in the Quran as the best examples of human sacrifice. Those who accepted Islam when a time it wasn't comfortable to be Muslim, those who accepted Islam in a time when they saw their own family members, kicking them out of their own homes. Those who accepted Islam at the time when their husbands would beat them in order to leave Islam and they stood firm on Islam. Allah subhanho wa Taala describes them as sort of hotshot

00:01:31 --> 00:01:44

with some beautiful characteristics that are examples for us to follow. Allah subhanaw taala says, Lil fukao Nigerien alladhina ocurrido mean do

00:01:46 --> 00:02:04

you ever tell Luna Philomena law? What do you wanna? Wang soon? aloha? una una eco Houma Saudi foon. Allah says, As for those who are poor, destitute in need,

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

of the mohajir,

00:02:08 --> 00:02:15

who were kicked out from their homes, and from their wealth, they were usurped. They only wanted one thing.

00:02:17 --> 00:02:20

What did they want was somebody waiting for them with $20 million.

00:02:22 --> 00:02:51

with somebody waiting for them for castles, was somebody wants to tell them you're going to become heads of countries, two superpowers you're going to take over. None of that they were going to say none of that they witnessed none of that they saw many of them they even perish before seeing the victory of Islam. But they were promised and they acted for one reason and one reason only up to one of them in a law What did one they only wanted the favor of a law and his pleasure.

00:02:53 --> 00:02:58

And this status in and of itself, the scholars say is the highest status that a human being could reach

00:03:00 --> 00:03:19

your spirituality, your salon, your zecca the fact you're coming here praying in this question, the fact that you're going out and seeking goodness from Allah, that's what Allah not harm. The fact that you're not oppressing your wife and you're treating other people with fairness in your Muslim and non Muslim neighbors. All of this is to reach one level that is full of a laundry one,

00:03:20 --> 00:03:22

until a law says one day to you all the alohar

00:03:24 --> 00:03:33

right, until the law says to you may have lost pleasure be upon you. And his mercy. This is a Hadith of the Prophet slice Allah, that a servant

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

of a law will come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala with nothing better than doing what he obligated.

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

The best way to come near to Allah is what was he obligated? What did he obligate on you? The five pillars of Islam to believe in Allah alone, don't associate any partners with him. Don't ask anything, and anyone except him. Don't seek blessing in anything except that he told us to seek blessing.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:43

And to believe in Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the final prophet and messenger, the final chain, who was the halifa of a law on the ark, like he said about our family Salaam, with quite a lot of book Halima aikaterini. gra don't love the halifa. And when we said to the angels we are going to place on this earth, a halifa, meaning a representative of a law a deputy, someone that will be responsible for an objective, someone that will come in generation after generation. The mother said I'm the father of humanity, because Allah gave humanity only one faith, one faith, that faith is to believe in a law. that faith is to call humanity to Allah. And every prophet is a halifa

00:04:43 --> 00:04:54

until the final of them Mohammed Abdullah Al Habib Ali Salatu was the final of the whole offer. Then what happens in when the prophets and messengers they're done with their job?

00:04:56 --> 00:05:00

What is the very first successor of the prophets I said have a call who was him was there

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

Title halifa Khalifa Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam because now it is the job of the oma Bahama Sai Salaam to carry the responsibility,

00:05:12 --> 00:05:19

the responsibility of the one message and loss that you are the last remnants of humanity. Everyone else failed

00:05:20 --> 00:05:23

everyone else from the previous prophets and messengers,

00:05:24 --> 00:05:38

they did not fulfill the responsibility. So Allah subhanaw taala said, Mohammed Salah Lord Islam, and then he left it to his own man. That is why some scholars say that every believer represents as if he's a prophet to a nation,

00:05:40 --> 00:05:52

as if they're a prophet to a nation wide, meaning they're responsible for the message of Islam. They're responsible for this, this faith that needs to go out to people, you are their last remnants of humanity. And that is why

00:05:53 --> 00:06:06

Allah subhanho wa Taala praise these people, because they only thought to do one thing, fulfill this responsibility. And secondly, only seek the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:06:07 --> 00:06:08

only seek the pleasure of Allah.

00:06:09 --> 00:06:11

And then Allah subhanaw taala described

00:06:12 --> 00:06:46

what their special characteristic was, you ever wonder what is the special characteristic of the mohajir? And what made them special? Do they have a different blood type, they breathe a different air. They were like super human beings. Sometimes we may think of them that way. Because we read through their stories, and we think, Oh, I can't do that. I can't be like more than ninja I can be like, I'm only allowed to add on who I can be like, I can be like many of the companions. Because sometimes when we when we tell their stories, it seems so far away from our reality.

00:06:48 --> 00:06:54

So one of the ways that we can understand how we can take them as examples is to think about things that made them human

00:06:55 --> 00:06:57

things that they had to overcome.

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

For example,

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

I will walk through the lowdown on who is the best of the Sahaba. After

00:07:05 --> 00:07:15

the prophet SAW, I said them being a prophet. He's the best of this oma. And then I'm one of the law enforcement and I do the lawn home, and the rest of the Sahaba and maybe some alojado selama.

00:07:16 --> 00:07:38

But armado and aboubaker, the law and home had to work on things and improve on them just like all of us. I will work it was known for actually his very short temper, many people are surprised. He was known to have anger very quickly. One time a man, he came, and I will walk out on the lawn when the prophets I send them were sitting down.

00:07:39 --> 00:07:42

And the man started to curse a worker in his face.

00:07:44 --> 00:07:54

And a worker was holding his anger. And the prophets lie. Selim is looking at a worker and the man is cursing a worker. And the Prophet says I'm looking at the face of a worker on the lawn. And he's smiling.

00:07:56 --> 00:07:56

He's smiling.

00:07:58 --> 00:08:17

And this continues continue until finally the man said things which I will look into couldn't hold his anger anymore. So guess what? He exploded. And he responded to the man with similar curses, the way he responded to him. At that moment, the prophet SAW I said on his face became angry. He got up and he started to walk away.

00:08:18 --> 00:08:20

And Ilana became startled, so he ran after.

00:08:22 --> 00:08:24

He said, jasola, Hold on, wait a minute.

00:08:26 --> 00:08:29

When the man was cursing me, you were smiling.

00:08:31 --> 00:08:38

You were looking at me and you were smiling. And then when I look at how he words it, when I repeated some of the things he said to me,

00:08:39 --> 00:08:40

when I was just repeating

00:08:41 --> 00:08:47

what I repeated some of the things that he said to me, your face changed in anger, you got up and you left.

00:08:48 --> 00:09:00

You got up and you left. Why is that you're also the law. And the prophets, I send them at least Auto Salon is now going to discipline not just a Sahabi, who needs to overcome his anger issues.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:05

But a human being but more importantly than that, this man will be the next leader.

00:09:06 --> 00:09:15

His standard is much higher than everyone else, he will become an example for people. So listen to what he says. Listen to what he says. He says, Oh aboubaker

00:09:16 --> 00:09:20

when that man was cursing you, Allah had sent an angel responding to him.

00:09:22 --> 00:09:24

Allah had sent an angel responding to him,

00:09:25 --> 00:09:27

because you were holding it.

00:09:28 --> 00:09:35

And then when you said some of the things that he said to you, shake on came and I don't sit in a gathering in which they were shaped on.

00:09:38 --> 00:09:47

Maybe some of us have heard this part. Listen to the rest. Many people don't quote the rest of the prophets. I said I said and I will tell you three things which are very important.

00:09:48 --> 00:09:59

Number one, the one who gives up someone that has oppressed them, and gives it up the fact that they've oppressed them for the sake of Allah.

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

A law will bless them and aid them in their life.

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

A law will aid you alone will be in your aid.

00:10:11 --> 00:10:52

Number two, whoever tries to join the ties of kinship as well as the ties of others, who have cut ties with one another, who have had anger with one another, who have had grudges with one another, who have had disputes with one another separation, if they tried to bring in mold those together using their own wealth, or giving gifts to them, how do you do that? You say, Hey, this is a gift from that person who didn't really give it though. You're just giving it to them saying it's from the other person, and you go to this person and you say, this is a gift from the other person. Why? So they say, Oh, hello. And then you bring them together? And you say, hey, let's, let's solve this.

00:10:54 --> 00:11:05

Let's solve this. Why Allah says, On the day of judgment, that even those who are they are closest in friendship to one another,

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

will be enemies on the day of judgment in the Mottaki.

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

Can you imagine my brother's This is the hardest thing. You can be sitting with one of your brothers, he is in this machine, you love each other. But if you don't love each other for a law, you will stand against each other on the Day of Judgment.

00:11:24 --> 00:11:25

May Allah protect us?

00:11:27 --> 00:11:34

So he said, If you join the ties of people, if they're cutting off from each other, Allah will bless you in your risk.

00:11:36 --> 00:11:51

Allah will bless you in your risk. Then he said, and asked for the one who opens the door of asking without any need. We have no need, you know, some people they ask, can I can have $10 and he has $10.

00:11:52 --> 00:12:17

If what he's asking, also, this can be implemented today. You know, this thing we call the credit card. Okay? When you're spending for no reason, not that you have a read, you have a reason you have a need, you're eating or you know, you've got but for no reason, just spending massively. What are you doing where every time you swipe the credit card, you're asking for a loan from? From the bank from this financial firm? without any reason no reason you have money? Let's swipe the card.

00:12:19 --> 00:12:27

Right? Is it there's no problem? The only problem is that you're asking you don't need it. It's extravagance, materialism.

00:12:28 --> 00:12:39

This is part of this. Asking without need. He said whoever opens the doors of asking meaning without need. Allah subhana wa tada will only increase them in less

00:12:41 --> 00:12:50

will only increase them and decrease Don't you see this? How many people are now drowning they say in credit card debt in loan debt.

00:12:51 --> 00:13:28

Because why? I need to have the car I need to have the house. I need to have these things. So hello, where I come from in America. People are so engrossed in the material world. That one of my friends you have to work very hard to get a house. Homes are very, very expensive. Okay, so one of my friends who worked very hard hamdulillah bless him. He saved some money. He bought a humble humble home then you what do you do when you buy a home you invite your friends you served them dinner you give some failure in some saga right? So one of his friends when he entered the house, he said Masha Allah homothetic Mashallah. What a beautiful starter house

00:13:30 --> 00:13:36

What a beautiful starter house you know what that means? This is your first home inshallah you will work harder and work for a bigger house.

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

This house that you got now is just the beginning. You have to work harder and make it make sure you get it he says starter house. I've worked so hard just to get this home and in this society they're so engrossed in materialism that they think this is a starter house

00:13:55 --> 00:13:59

panel on May Allah make our starter homes in our agenda homes biggest in this world.

00:14:01 --> 00:14:13

So this is the society engrossed in materialism engrossed in finding value that's not truly gives you value an entire society and we're following some of these footsteps along this time.

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

These people

00:14:17 --> 00:14:33

reached a state Allah praise them in the floor. They did and they acted for a law to the extent that they first thing the prophets I send them a trained in them. Before the prophets I send them I cared about buildings. Before the prophets estimate cared about the outward.

00:14:34 --> 00:14:42

He cared about insan before bunion he cared about human beings, bettering people's clock and character even someone like abubaker

00:14:43 --> 00:14:51

even someone like I will look at all the time. He still needs to be trained by those who have lost an arm or the Londo. I don't know. Mashallah, you all know about alma

00:14:52 --> 00:14:53

mater, the law.

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

And his harshness was well known. Some people you know what they say? They say yeah, the Sahaba

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

They all have different personalities. I'm like our motto No, no, you're not like I'm gonna Please sit down brother.

00:15:06 --> 00:15:43

Armando the low on who was corrected by the prophets of Allah Islam. His harshness is not an example for us. His harshness is not an example for us why every time he was harsh, one of the prophets I said, don't do no model that is not correct. all the way until his own hit alpha. He got up on the member of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he looked at the first step and he said, this is where you used to stand. He looked at the second step. He said, this is where the Prophet says I'm used to stand. So he said, I'm not going to stand on the first or the second, I will never be equal to them. So he remained on the original step. And he raised his hand he said, Oh, Allah, I'm harsh.

00:15:43 --> 00:16:06

So make me soft, along with all the harshness, you remember, is gone. Now. It's gone. It took 23 years of prophethood and the khilafah worker to correct them and like or model the loads that I know. So anyone who's using the example saying I'm harsh, like I want to know Habibi. You cannot use the example of Omar to be harsh. You have to use the example of the son of the Prophet of Islam.

00:16:07 --> 00:16:13

You can't say I'm like our model. No, be like Omar at the end of his life, not at the one where he's being trained and corrected by the prophet slicin.

00:16:15 --> 00:16:22

Even Amaro, the alojado. Even Omar, he said, Oh Allah, I am weak, so make me strong.

00:16:23 --> 00:16:35

And then the people were still afraid. They said, No, Omar is going to be harsh against us. So the second day he comes in, he says, oh, people, I've heard that you say that Ahmad is going to be harsh against us. You're right, I am going to be harsh.

00:16:37 --> 00:16:56

But I'm going to be harsh only against those who commit oppression against the weak. I'm going to be harsh against only those who take from what they don't deserve. I'm going to be harsh against only those who are corrupt as for the harshest that preceded it is now gone. It is now gone.

00:16:57 --> 00:17:01

This is our model, the Alon who part of his his inauguration speech.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:09

The process of what refining character refining

00:17:11 --> 00:17:15

the profit slice dilemma said the highest levels of gender

00:17:16 --> 00:17:18

are for whom the majority

00:17:19 --> 00:17:20

the quality of the Quran,

00:17:21 --> 00:17:22

the Imam,

00:17:23 --> 00:17:24

the shape,

00:17:25 --> 00:17:40

the one who gives charity, No, none of that. None of that. No, no mercy, no mercy action, no physical action. The prophets I said I said he said the highest levels and Jenna is those who have the best character with people along with

00:17:41 --> 00:18:04

those who have the best character with people. And he said three Howdy, this is the first one, the second howdy you will not only have the highest levels and gentlemen, if you refine your character. Number two, you will have the closest station to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He said the closest to me in Jannah will be those who have the best character.

00:18:05 --> 00:18:17

Number three, he said those who have the best character among people, they are rewarded by a law like the one who fasts during the day and who pray and sleeps during the night.

00:18:20 --> 00:18:28

who prays during the night that sleep who prays during the night? Meaning what so why might an alarm you will get the reward why because of your good character.

00:18:29 --> 00:18:32

This much emphasis on character and o'clock my brothers

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

is something Allah and His Messenger emphasized so much. But we are the ones that are emphasizing the least on

00:18:41 --> 00:18:52

the least on sometimes we care so much about Islams mechanics, mechanical things, the halaal and how long to the extent we lose a flop.

00:18:54 --> 00:19:40

Sometimes we're trying to implement a muster hub, and you're making a Muslim angry, which is how long the prophets I send them instead to to care for a Muslim jabril How often is to care about his his consciousness, how his demeanor, upsetting him. He's like this is a real Muslim who protects himself from doing so. A true Muslim and selling melamine on minea de Sani, aka makalah De Soto Sara, the true believer is the one that people are protected from their tongue and their hands and dishonouring others meaning their flock. So sometimes of how long my brothers, my sisters, the things that we are sometimes emphasizing on is not what even a lot emphasized as much on and the

00:19:40 --> 00:19:50

things that Allah emphasized so much on, we're not emphasizing enough on and this is a problem. Why the end of this verse? hula iica

00:19:51 --> 00:19:52

homosassa the one

00:19:54 --> 00:19:56

the one characteristic of the Maha dream

00:19:57 --> 00:19:59

The one characteristic is what

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

Sit mala took me five years to get to this answer.

00:20:05 --> 00:20:13

I was studying Sierra with the with one of my teachers. I said what is? What is the secret of the Sahaba? What is their secret? How can we become like the Sahaba?

00:20:15 --> 00:20:33

So when this question was asked to a famous dad are in America, they said how can we become like the Sahaba? When they read the Quran, I want to feel like the Sahaba when they read the Quran, beautiful question, right? He said to him, the Sahaba did not read the Quran to get high.

00:20:35 --> 00:20:40

To feel high, elated. In emotion. He said they read the Quran to implement it.

00:20:42 --> 00:21:15

And because of that they had an emotional, the implementation of the whole on not just feeling it, not just feeling it. These people had since become our law. This is their secret. Rizal on ser de forma de la la men and women who are truthful with a law with their covenants and promises. They were truthful with a law saying Oh Allah I am impatient grant me patience. Oh Allah I don't fulfill my trust sometimes help me all I I've cheated before help me with this. All law I have difficulty with my wife or my husband helped me.

00:21:16 --> 00:21:29

Sometimes I lose my temper. Sometimes I lose my patience. Oh Lord make me thankful. They're truthful with the law where they are. So guess what the prophet system said honey, they're just gonna say Manya stockmar. lawyers to

00:21:30 --> 00:21:35

whoever whoever is truthful, the law or law is truthful with him or her.

00:21:36 --> 00:21:51

This is the characteristic of the Nigerian since Mr. law since they were truthful, honest, you know why? My brothers, my sisters right now Mashallah Islam has spread all over the world all over the world.

00:21:53 --> 00:22:09

The history of Islam in this country is one of the greatest histories in Islamic history. It saddens me greatly one law as a historian that I meet my my brothers and sisters from Nigeria. And I asked them about their history. They said I didn't study it.

00:22:10 --> 00:22:11

Well, like

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

I said, How do you not study your history? How do you not know you're on a map? How do you not know that the Sokoto Caliphate that lifted that was here? How do you not know of the stances against colonialism? And the orlimar that that took stances here? How do you not know the authors of many great works in literature in Islamic history?

00:22:34 --> 00:22:50

I watched your own country, your own people. When you don't know your history, you don't know your past you don't know your legacy. You will always feel inferior my brothers, you'll always look to someone else thinking they have better than us. You don't even remember where you came from and how people look to you.

00:22:51 --> 00:22:57

This khilafah from this country, used to give sadaqa to Mecca and Medina

00:22:58 --> 00:23:07

used to give sadaqa to Mecca, Medina, the kingdom of data for us to support the Ashraf of Medina and support the, the the Kaaba,

00:23:09 --> 00:23:11

from the African states in the so called Caliphate as well.

00:23:13 --> 00:23:23

Your legacy is rich, you need to know it. And that's why Malcolm X a great scholar, any Imam in America, he said that those who don't know where they came from, they will not know where they are going.

00:23:25 --> 00:23:42

He said the education of our children and ourselves. First is what will free our people he was talking about the African Americans who are the product of racism now even to this day of white supremacy, and a product of systematic racism in America.

00:23:43 --> 00:24:23

He said that will free our people he meant Of course Muslims as well. And us as well. How often do you see Muslims? They say why can't we be like so and so? Why can't we be like such and such? Because you don't know your own history? How do you study your history, you have strength. You have intellectuals, and 100 of this country is not a need, except to benefit from society, benefit from their neighbors benefit from the world and take that benefit and to develop it and use it and make it better. This is what Islam teaches us. any benefit any wisdom you take from anyone Muslim or non Muslim, in this dunya and you make it better. This is called excellence.

00:24:25 --> 00:24:29

So hon Allah. That is why I asked, Why are the

00:24:30 --> 00:24:35

brightest minds sometimes of Nigeria going outside of the country?

00:24:36 --> 00:24:42

The brightest minds I see them, I see them in New York. I see them in Los Angeles. I see them in Texas.

00:24:43 --> 00:24:46

We have to teach our people

00:24:47 --> 00:25:00

to invest here. We have to teach them that this is the place where we will develop take the good that you have learned and to bring benefit to society bring benefit to the oma here and give them options.

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

Unity. This is what a prophetic society teaches. Based on one thing, when the values of Islam are shared between the janitor and the leader of anyone, when the values are shared and when the business men and women invest with values, not invest for personal gain,

00:25:22 --> 00:25:27

that is when we will rise together inshallah, when we all have the same values based on this,

00:25:28 --> 00:25:31

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he arrived in Medina,

00:25:32 --> 00:25:41

it was based on this scitechnol law and seeking a closeted one. Why, because they had nothing else. They literally had nothing else.

00:25:42 --> 00:25:49

They had no money, they had nothing. They were poor refugees kicked out of their homes, they did not even have to cloths on their body.

00:25:51 --> 00:25:59

When the Mahajan came to Medina, that is why when you don't have anything my brothers and sisters, you will be more sincere in sha Allah.

00:26:00 --> 00:26:01

It's an opportunity.

00:26:02 --> 00:26:03

It's an opportunity.

00:26:04 --> 00:26:08

Because when you have you have to fight a lot with your intention.

00:26:09 --> 00:26:15

Then Allah subhanaw taala describes the people who welcomed them, the people who welcomed them

00:26:21 --> 00:26:40

then when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam arrived in Medina, Allah then continues the verses the whole on is amazing. The whole on has the complete framework how to build a society. Allah subhanaw taala continues the verses one levena toboa would download one email and I mean copy him you

00:26:42 --> 00:26:45

know him wala Fie pseudo Rahim.

00:26:46 --> 00:26:53

Allah big tuna fish odori him. Jim mimma OH to wait

00:26:56 --> 00:27:02

to see him Hello. Can I be him? Awesome. Well my gosh, oh Hannah.

00:27:08 --> 00:27:47

Allah subhanaw taala says as for those people, who are already established meaning in Medina and made Medina a dharawal man These are two names of Medina and the Quran. These are two names of Medina. One of the names of Medina is a daughter meaning home this is home for every believer. Medina does not belong to anyone. It belongs to Allah and His messenger and every believer that visits it is their home. Allah says in the hold on this is home for you and I and all of us and he man he man is another name of Medina why the prophet SAW Selim it says in Alma in in an email layer is Whelan Medina Chica Mata

00:27:50 --> 00:28:28

Eman will go back to Medina. Like a snake goes back to its hole. What does this mean? The scholars they say if you think about it, and the end of times, people will come they will find their man revived when they go and visit Medina. For those of you who have you know what I'm talking about. You will feel this. This man you've never felt before in your life. And one of the great scholars of Haiti he says if you think and you say I studied snakes, the prophets I send them he says like a snake going back to its home. He said snakes don't have homes. So what is this Hadeeth mean? He said that snakes wherever they find a home they make it its home. So whoever comes to visit Medina, you

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

will find your EMA and even though you've never seen this place before in your life

00:28:34 --> 00:28:49

and this is a sign of the existence of Allah subhana wa tada the fact that you can find your email this is mentioned in the Quran and the Hadith across the center. This is a man will Athena turbo Darwin email macabre him meaning established in settled there before the refugees, the migrants, the Mahajan came then

00:28:50 --> 00:29:09

you have boredom and hajra. Number one they love those who migrated to them. This religion this faith teaches us love for one another. love for one another. That's why when I land in this beautiful country, I say I came to visit my family in Nigeria.

00:29:10 --> 00:29:10

My family

00:29:11 --> 00:29:14

Well, I meet people I feel like I've known them forever.

00:29:16 --> 00:29:30

You say Salaam and says if we start talking as if we've known each other for generations. This is the man and Islam and the whole and Mahabharata. Islam teaches us. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam has said that the believers are like one body.

00:29:31 --> 00:29:54

If one portion of it becomes sick, what happens all of your blood cells rush to this area. You get a fever the entire body becomes inflicted. This is like us. This is like us. Something happens here. Below He will make draft for you from wherever we are. Something happens in Burma. There are in our diet. Something happens in China there in our doors. We are like one body.

00:29:55 --> 00:29:56

We just live in different lengths

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

and these lands are all our lands.

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

When I come here, I don't feel like I'm visiting a country feel like I'm visiting another home.

00:30:04 --> 00:30:45

This is how believers should feel. Wherever you visit where there's Islam, this is our lands. This is why the Ottomans you know what they used to say? The Ottoman Turks. They're very, very interesting people, Mashallah. They accepted Islam, because otherwise we would all be in very big trouble. Okay. What about them Islam, the Ottomans were not originally from the place where it is now Anatolia, Turkey. They came from Mongolia, as you all know. And they settled wherever they went, and they adopted the culture of the lands. They adopted Persian cultures. Many of their practices today are mixed between Arab and Persian cultures, as well as the traditional Turkish culture. You

00:30:45 --> 00:30:50

know what they said they made a very beautiful statement. They said, our homeland is the land beneath our feet.

00:30:53 --> 00:31:01

our homeland is the land beneath our feet. This is Islam. This is not wherever you are, where they're Muslims, this is your land.

00:31:02 --> 00:31:03

This is your life.

00:31:05 --> 00:31:07

They love those who migrated to them.

00:31:09 --> 00:31:26

They love those who migrated to them. This is the first characteristic love set absolute selflessness, absolute selflessness, the characteristic of the unsoldered that's what their names were. The helpers was absolute selflessness.

00:31:27 --> 00:31:38

Loving those with nothing. You know, you know when you do something for somebody, you're doing a favor for somebody else, favoritism. Here let me ask because they will give me a favor I will give them a favor.

00:31:39 --> 00:31:48

The prophetic society is based on doing things for people not seeking favors from anyone.

00:31:50 --> 00:31:54

In a minute Remo calmly watch Hila learn remain calm.

00:31:57 --> 00:32:33

When Allah subhanaw taala described those who are feeding people in dire desperate need, we give you food for what reason once he left for the sake of Allah for the face of a loss, monotonic for his pleasure. We don't want from you two things that nobody doing Come on what we don't want reward from you. And we don't want thanks from you even but even if you go home that we're respectful, knucklehead, Allah bless you. Right? But we don't expect it from anyone. We don't expect it from anyone. Imagine my brothers and sisters and entire society taught this level of honor and dignity.

00:32:34 --> 00:32:42

Imagine every member of the society, they're taught this level of dignity and honor. What kind of men what kind of women would we be?

00:32:45 --> 00:33:03

This is the prophetic society. Then the prophets Allah said last month or excuse me continues by saying what are you doing official dority official dorium Hajime moto and they don't find in their hearts any kind of ill feelings for what their brothers or sisters were given.

00:33:04 --> 00:33:08

You know, somebody get massages, somebody drives a nice car who where do they get that money from?

00:33:09 --> 00:33:17

Where do they get this from? They somebody buys a nice house somebody wears a nice Mashallah caftan. Right? Hello, welcome a new one. Where'd you get this from?

00:33:19 --> 00:33:28

And you have this ill feeling of jealousy, of envy. Of what? Who does he think they are? This is all from chiffon.

00:33:29 --> 00:33:31

The characteristic of the unsought Well,

00:33:33 --> 00:33:39

they don't have anything in their heart for what people were given. You know what one of my teachers said, when I first came to Medina,

00:33:41 --> 00:33:48

he said to me, the believer is happy when he sees the blessings of a law on their brother or sister.

00:33:50 --> 00:33:56

Because why he feels that Allah is honoring them. With this blessing. That's a believer.

00:33:57 --> 00:34:06

So when you see your brother You said he said to us, you will start in the same class. You'll start in the same level. But then over time one of you will become better you become

00:34:07 --> 00:34:40

better than you will become a audio of Quran better than you will become you know, a orator healthy better than you so what happened I thought what comes on? You used to be together used to play used to play football. Used to swim together used to go to you are just the same. Look at him now who he thinks he is. And V and jealousy. He says that listen, when that comes remind yourself Allah is honoring this Deen with this person. When you see somebody becoming rich, when you see somebody a loss blessing them, think in your heart Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Allah is honoring this Deen with this person.

00:34:41 --> 00:34:46

This was the unsolved the second characteristic of the unsolved the third characteristic of the unsolved

00:34:50 --> 00:34:59

we are on either unforeseen Willow canopy masasa they preferred that those will hygiene over

00:35:00 --> 00:35:05

themselves, even though they were in dire and desperate need

00:35:06 --> 00:35:38

a lot, whatever. They prefer others over themselves, even though when they're in dire and desperate need, somehow you want to see people's true man. Imagine tomorrow that's it. There is no more safety, there's no more gas, there's no more nothing. Everybody's on their own in the streets. You will see a man in that time. mela protect us. You know why believers will come together to help one another. believers will support the weak, the oppressed, they will protect and provide security.

00:35:39 --> 00:36:02

Right, and those who have no Eman, they will eat each other like animals. They will eat each other like animals, because that's when true a man shows this is why they said in times of ease, when you show giving, and you prefer someone over your own self. This is when your Eman is true. This is a true believer, we

00:36:03 --> 00:36:41

can have him kasasa they prefer others over themselves even though when they were in dire need. I'll tell you one story because this story, you can go on many stories from the unsought I'll tell you one of them. The story of Saudi Arabia and under management of other hand offers a very wealthy man very wealthy in Mecca. When he came to Medina, he lost everything every single penny dime sent whatever you want to say he lost for Islam, why? You have to want to follow them in the law. What Why don't we just covered it for a long for a loss pleasure. He lost everything. He arrived in Medina, Allah subhanho wa Taala instructed our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to implement a

00:36:42 --> 00:37:06

welfare system, a social welfare system, the world had never seen before. To this day, there's no welfare social system, like the social system of Madina, munawwara of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, what was that called Maha Maha, when he dedicated a person in need to a family who was already established in Medina.

00:37:08 --> 00:37:27

Okay. And what that did is they supported one another, but in the first two and a half, three years of Islam, it was an obligation, not a choice. And if one of them passed away, they would inherit one another. To that extent, that doesn't exist anymore now, but I just want to ask you a question.

00:37:28 --> 00:37:29

I'll grant you coffee in general.

00:37:32 --> 00:37:43

Now, I want you to imagine something. Imagine there's a decree, there's a decree, every person in this family in this in this machine has to host a refugee family

00:37:44 --> 00:37:46

has to buy obligation. How would you feel

00:37:48 --> 00:38:05

this? Well, I don't know. I'm trying to support myself. How am I going to support another family? Those peoples upon a law were trained to care about the weakest in their society, to have access to care not to just live your life and say, Oh, I'm good. Forget the week. No.

00:38:06 --> 00:38:30

They were taught this vital suta last night, this is the prophetic society. And one of them was saddened, there'll be no other hand off side and Robbie was the one who hosted Saudi Arabia was the one who was the medic, the Ansari. So guess what he did? When the verse was was revealed? And this command was revealed? Saudi Arabia tells him the middle of something I still don't understand to this day.

00:38:32 --> 00:38:36

I still don't understand. It's this amazing. He said to him, yeah, man.

00:38:37 --> 00:38:55

Half of my wealth is yours. I'll give you half of my wealth. This Alhamdulillah somebody who's charitable, he's a businessman. hamdulillah he knows how to make money. He's giving him out as well. He said half of my clothes, half of everything to you. Okay, then he said something. So how was it this day? I don't understand.

00:38:56 --> 00:39:01

Okay, maybe because I'm Vaughn or something. Okay. He said to him, I have two wives.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:06

Whichever one you want to marry, I will divorce her right now. You can marry.

00:39:08 --> 00:39:13

He was serious. I will divorce her right now. And you can marry her.

00:39:14 --> 00:39:16

And what I'm gonna offset is Akela here.

00:39:18 --> 00:39:27

Of course, he did not say that. He said, may Allah bless you in your wealth. And may Allah bless you in your family. Show me the marketplace. He's a businessman.

00:39:28 --> 00:39:55

Allah gave them the motivation, to not be stuck in social welfare. expecting the state to give them their job, expecting the state to one fun to them. They gave them the motivation to you go and make your money. And when you do a load less you allow will honor you, Allah will give you because the one whose limits Allah is the one who is limited.

00:39:56 --> 00:40:00

The one who is limited. Limiting Allah is the one who's doing

00:40:00 --> 00:40:20

emitted this what the prophets I said him It says, Whoever limits our laws giving is the one who allow limits. Allah can't do it. I can't find the job. I can't do it. You won't, then you won't know what happened. Allah bless him and as well he went into a marketplace as a poor faqeer.

00:40:21 --> 00:40:29

And he Allah enriched him to the point that at the end of his life, he has a inheritance of $22 million. I calculated

00:40:30 --> 00:40:40

$22 million and he has homes and property to this day in Medina his property is preserved and his property and five is preserved to this date, his property.

00:40:41 --> 00:41:08

You can come to me and you visit this is the this was the land of 100 off and I will show you in the number we were his homeless he built a big house. They call it Donald bleah the home of the guests because used to host the guests of us who last lesson. This is called eema and my brothers This is called a man if a man does not reach to where you believe a law will bless you and your wealth bless you in your family bless you in your risk, then what purpose A man has.

00:41:09 --> 00:41:12

What purpose does a society have when a man is only in the message

00:41:13 --> 00:41:31

and Vic hit enter an hour rod and Salah This is not only a man a man translates to your risk, an amount translates to your business and how you deal with people. And then the last part that says fault without you go home and most people, they are the ones who are successful. They are the ones who are successful. The Muhammad Yunus saw the horn, the unsolder muffler

00:41:34 --> 00:41:52

saw the corn because of sacrifice, ultimate sacrifice. They know what it means to sacrifice don't teach them how to do your own. What sacrifices and the unsought are most of the homes successful because they know how to give. They know how to support they know how to turn to Allah.

00:41:53 --> 00:42:00

This is the prophetic society and ultimately a loss of power that you say okay, Allah mentioned these two in the Quran era be Where are we?

00:42:01 --> 00:42:11

Where are we alone mentions us Don't worry. The last part that I says well levena remembered him yaku as for those who came after them guess who that's us?

00:42:12 --> 00:42:21

To him were bad to him. Those who came us after them. They say yes una buena robina Filipina

00:42:23 --> 00:42:29

Oh la forgive our bro we make dogs. Our girl is what or law forgive our brothers make us like them.

00:42:30 --> 00:42:37

Make us like who didn't make us like the unsub what I tell Chelsea kulu mina de la Vina Manu and don't

00:42:38 --> 00:42:44

allow us to harbor hatred. Or rancor. For those who believe

00:42:46 --> 00:42:53

don't have hatred or rancor for a single believer who has in his heart La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah

00:42:54 --> 00:43:06

don't hold any hatred, because of their tribe, because of their language because of their color because of their country where they come from. Don't hold rancor in your heart for a single believer.

00:43:07 --> 00:43:40

This is what I lost it. This is what our job is. Be like, Oh, my God, be like the unsought and don't hold any evil towards the believers be the service to humanity, servitude to a law a bother or Buddha to a law of servitude to a law and his mental health service to creation, Muslim or non Muslim. This is the model of Islam. And then we say robina indicado for Allah, you're the most kinda you want to say because oh a lot if if you allow us to enter agenda based on our deeds,

00:43:42 --> 00:43:56

will we go the agenda based on our deeds alone? We won't we enter agenda based on the mercy of Allah and your role, your kind, you will raise our status to these people. You will gather us with them in sha Allah Tada.

00:43:58 --> 00:44:01

And the one final thing that I want to show you the practical nature of this prophetic society.

00:44:03 --> 00:44:42

This prophetic society when the prophet SAW him arrived in Medina, he stayed in hold up 14 to 21 days. And he built the first Masjid by the prophets. I said it was not the first question is the first question Islam is the Kaaba. The first machine in the time of the Prophet system is not even about there was another machine in Medina called machine bunnies, right? That was the first question. This is the first machine built by the prophet Mohammed Salam. Okay. When he arrived there, he said 14 to 21 days. He he noticed that there is one companion that was missing. This companion his name was as it was Aurora. He was one of the leaders of the huzar Lodge. There's two

00:44:42 --> 00:44:45

tribes Yoruba and hausa, right.

00:44:47 --> 00:44:56

There was two tribes Eurobond house and Medina the Olsen the hunter Lodge, the Austin the hustle Lodge, they fought wars for 40 years sound familiar to you?

00:44:57 --> 00:44:59

They fought wars for 40 years.

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

Some of them over ridiculous things like a camel.

00:45:04 --> 00:45:21

It started because one man trespassed the property. So he killed his camels. He said You killed my camera kill you he killed him. And they start a war over each other. So when they came to Medina that they still had animosity Islam doesn't make your hatred for each other all of a sudden disappeared. So what happens is

00:45:22 --> 00:46:04

what happens is the prophets I send doesn't see one of them outside of his daughter who is this man. He was one of the leaders of the Hudson Lodge, and he was critical in making the pact that allowed the prophets I send them to migrate to Medina individual he went all the way to Mecca twice. And he attended a pledge, a covenant a promise called battle acaba. He was there. And now when the Prophet Sessoms arrived, he's like, Why isn't he here? This is weird. This is strange. This is strange. Why is not Assad abroad. It means Aurora here. So the he's from the hustlers Dios. They say Yasuda la he killed a man from our tribe in Jeddah before it's now he's afraid to come to our territory, because

00:46:04 --> 00:46:06

he's afraid we might kill him

00:46:07 --> 00:46:10

because of this animosity, because of this animosity.

00:46:11 --> 00:46:27

So the prophets I Sam says, tell him to come down to come. So he came when he came to this land, enemy territory. So he the prophets, I said, I'm a smile and he says, He said it was a lot of magic. What brings you here all of a sudden was Aurora. And isn't there something between you and the other tribe?

00:46:28 --> 00:47:09

So I said him as Laura said something which is the motto of the unsought Yasuda law. When you tell me to come, I will never be late and disobeyed. I will always be there if you tell me to do something. And then what happens is the prophets I send my gathers the leaders of the OSI, the opposing tribe, five of them, he says, Come, they all come together and they say to God, welcome bah bah, you will give each other safety. You will solve and have allegiance and alliance between each other. And what are they gonna solo whoever you want us to give allegiance to we will give allegiance to but the Prophet says and said No, you are not going to give allegiance because I

00:47:09 --> 00:47:19

commanded you. You're going to give allegiance to each other because you want to not because of my command. They said oh we do that. So they have given wide hugs.

00:47:22 --> 00:47:29

And they allow us to stay meaning what all of the animosity and the hatred they had before for European health.

00:47:31 --> 00:48:09

For for Alison, Hassan is gone, is gone. And the next day asylum laws Aurora host Simon was in his house to show the same thing that this is gone. This is the first thing the prophets I send them a did After establishing the community. The first thing before he goes out tells the world Islam is the best religion. Before he goes tells the the Jewish people living in Medina or the pagans, Islam has the solutions for everything. they solved internal conflict before they solve external conflict. they solve their internal problems before they co tell the world where the best people.

00:48:10 --> 00:48:57

This is the prophetic society my brothers and sisters. That does not mean we don't do both at the same time, but it means we emphasize solving the problems amongst one another. The tribal problems that exists this Jamelia that exists in our society. Your tribe is an honor for you. But it becomes a dishonor when you use it to prefer yourself over someone else. It is dishonorable the prophets I said them I said it's hubby and Annette beside him Who is the most honorable and his tongue never says something like that. Except if it is really disgusting. If it is that filthy, he says Dara ha, he says leave it it is disgusting. It is filthy. You know why? This thing will cause so much

00:48:57 --> 00:49:14

separation between people. We will not allow our daughters to marry because of a different tribe. We will now allow us to have allegiances because of a different tribe. We will not pray we will not host we will not settle we will not have pact we will not have business no Habibi, your only allegiance is to Islam.

00:49:15 --> 00:49:29

Your only allegiances to Islam and this safety of governance and safety in your community. These are your allegiances. This is the prophetic society. This is what the prophets lie cinemas started with. And then the reasonable audio cinema then

00:49:31 --> 00:49:46

goes to solve external problems after that and he tells them three things and inshallah we end with this. The first thing he says to the people when he addresses the multicultural society of Medina. Among them are Muslims and non Muslims. He addresses them. The first thing he says, He says,

00:49:48 --> 00:49:59

Are you Hannah's issue salam, O people, spread peace, spread peace among one another. You're all equal citizens in this society. All of you. No one will

00:50:00 --> 00:50:26

Force One to accept to their faith. And we will protect each other if we are attacked. If just set up what ultimate bomb and feed the needy, what does this mean? Number one, try your best to maintain your community ties. Number two, wary about the weakest of your society. Because if you can support your weakest, you can support anyone.

00:50:27 --> 00:50:34

If you can support the weakest, the voiceless we don't have any money, the orphans, the widows, Muslim or non Muslim, and Islam we don't differentiate.

00:50:35 --> 00:50:41

In Islam, we don't differentiate. In Islam, we are taught you're supporting of human beings for need of help.

00:50:42 --> 00:51:07

And when you do that, this is when true Islam spreads. People see your Islam in your hands and your heart. And obviously, this means we support our people. And we support also the community at large. And the last thing he said to the people, Muslims, was so low Will anyone else who knew him and pray, make sure that your attachment to your faith is connection to a law. If you don't have Salah what is binding us?

00:51:08 --> 00:51:26

The ultimate accountability for all of us, my brothers, my sisters, is Allah subhanaw taala. If a man loses that accountability, that he will be accountable to a law, he will act like an animal because there's no accountability to anyone else. Any man who thinks there's no accountability,

00:51:27 --> 00:51:44

and he loses that accountability to a law, he will lose his humanity. He will lose his humanity. He can do anything. He can murder, he can steal, he can do anything. That's why the greatest accountability in our faith is knowing we're accountability to Allah.

00:51:46 --> 00:52:20

This is the prophetic society. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us this yellow army medals that allow us to increase that love and the sacrifices of the mohajir in the last pattern and make us of those that are so selfless, like the unsought the last point that I make us of those that live in a society where we help one another. And we are the best to our neighbors and are non Muslim friends and brothers and sisters, as well as those who are Muslims in the society so that we can raise the status of our society. Nelson Mandela bless all of us, and together with the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the highest levels of gender with the mohabbatein with the onslaught

00:52:20 --> 00:52:33

with the unabated Devi solo audience Salaam and the righteous of the believers and shadow we see each other if not in this life in Medina where you visit me inshallah I will visit you all inshallah and Jenna, with the company also loss of a lot a lot to sell him

00:52:35 --> 00:52:35

a sacrament.

00:52:52 --> 00:52:57

What is the disconnect between the West and Islam?

00:52:59 --> 00:53:02

What is the disconnect between the West and Islam?

00:53:03 --> 00:53:13

I will answer this in the form of a person a brother who, who asked who answered this question. He said that Alhamdulillah I learned Islam before I met Muslims.

00:53:15 --> 00:53:54

Muslims who are not living Islam is the disconnect between the West and Islam. Along the latter Jana fitna tunnel vena cava. Allah says in the Quran, Allah Don't make us a fitna. For those who don't who don't believe you know how there's a fitna when we don't implement Islam ourselves. When we lie when we cheat. You don't I will be honest with you brothers and sisters, there's no reason to your family. You know, when you're with family, you speak about the family issues. Okay, you don't hide. We speak about the family issues today. inshallah, one of the problems with many people is that some Muslim Brothers, they will take advantage of new convert sisters, for example, or non Muslim women,

00:53:55 --> 00:54:33

they marry them for their looks or their beauty, then they give them up with a child and they move away for example, what kind of introduction to Islam will they have for example, they will see the example of of Muslims who may not be righteous, and they will simply have the name Muhammad but doing things that a person who carries this name should never be even close to. So the disconnect and the divide is obviously us ourselves. Us ourselves in the law, Hola, UAE. Roma, Roma, we enforce him Allah will not change the state of a people until they change what is in themselves. But listen to this. There's another verse in the Quran many of us don't remember, in the LA hola como near

00:54:34 --> 00:54:57

Santa Marta, yo, yo ma be unforeseen. Allah will not change the blessing that he gave to a people until they changed what they until they change their state to themselves. You know, when the Muslim Omar used to be great, they used to quote this verse, not the other one. Listen, you're in NEMA, you're in blessing. If you change your heart and your intentions become a verse, Allah will take this near from you

00:54:58 --> 00:54:59

in the law

00:55:00 --> 00:55:01

In the last

00:55:02 --> 00:55:02


00:55:04 --> 00:55:10

enforcing a law will never change. The Blessing he gave you until you change your hearts. Our hearts changed my brothers.

00:55:12 --> 00:55:34

Are our hearts changed? Now we look at each other. We're looking at competition. We're not looking at brotherhood and camaraderie. I want to ask you a genuine question when you go to walk in the streets of Abuja, and you see Muslims and you say sent out to every single Muslim on the street like the prophets I sent him I said, if she said I'm spread the peace, right to those you know, and those who don't know we only give Salaam to those we know now. Don't you think if you start doing this in the streets of Abuja, people think you're crazy.

00:55:36 --> 00:55:43

Right? What is wrong with Do you want something from me? Do you want some money? Why are you saying that I'm one person even in one place, I'm not going to mention where he said to me Don't say said to me,

00:55:45 --> 00:55:45

like this.

00:55:47 --> 00:56:23

So we have to live Islam first and foremost. Secondly, as there's two great Muslim thinkers of our time, I really recommend all of you to know your history. Okay. All of you to learn know the history of this country. So how long if you don't know the history of this? Where did we come from, to two levels of history, learn the seed of the prophets, I send them like you know, your own life. You have to teach the seed of the prophets I send to your children, like they will go to sleep, and they will say it in their sleep because they know that so much. My teacher said you read it 1000 times until it mixes with your blood. And then you can compare at any moment that comes in your life,

00:56:23 --> 00:56:27

you're drawing from the life and the blessing and the principles of muscle loss.

00:56:28 --> 00:56:40

You have to this is one, you know the life of the Prophet, you know, the life of the Holy Father Rashida, why? Because the prophets Hassan says Allah can vicinity, as soon as you qualify Rashid, no matter you

00:56:41 --> 00:56:58

know, stick her Hold, hold on and stick to my son, and the son of the holy fire Rashid in who are rightly guided, okay, that's the first level of history everyone else after that they made mistakes. They're human beings. They did good. They did bad. We don't romanticize history.

00:56:59 --> 00:57:38

Some great leaders did some very bad things as well. But this is this is human beings. They're not the Sahaba. So we admit the good and we say the bad, let's watch out for that. The other type of history is how did you get here? 2019, Nigeria, what is your history? Where did you come from the colonization that took place? What did they take from us resources, not only resources, our own identity, we have to deconstruct that. So you need to know your history where you came from. And that is why there's two authors there. They wrote some very good books. One of them he's alive. he's a he's a Malaysian author, a very great Muslim thinker by the name of Sayed Mohammad Abbas, Abbas.

00:57:39 --> 00:58:00

He wrote a book called Islam and secularism, very beautiful book. He talks about the colonization of Muslim lands, how the education systems were destroyed, how resources were taken, all of that. And he says the solution is not blaming the colonizers, which is part of it. That's okay. Do you know your history, or what you're gonna blame always the need to have no solutions. He said the solution is at the

00:58:01 --> 00:58:23

disposal solution is added the solution is what we just talked about. Building a prophetic society at depth is not just character at the base, the entire educational system, starting with your own homes, starting with knowing the sila, knowing Hadees, knowing Koran, and teaching that to your wives and teaching that to your children. This is where it starts as a community of Muslims that does not know the sealer is not going to prosper

00:58:25 --> 00:58:52

at all, you all in this question, your role in your job is to know the CLR and to teach it to your children and make them look up to these people. And the other book by by great Indian scholar, his name is shake, I would have said nadwi just remember nadwi the book is called Islam and the world, Islam and the world. What did the world lose? By the decline of Islam? And you will see your history written there. Your history?

00:58:53 --> 00:58:56

What did what did the world lose when the Muslims in Nigeria were in decline?

00:58:58 --> 00:59:08

And 100 lots coming back up in sha Allah. But it's very important to become educated to know your history. And then you will see the divide between

00:59:10 --> 00:59:21

the West and Islam. The divide starts with us. We are the divide. We are the divide and we are that solution. But if we know where we came from, then we will know where we are going in Charlottetown. It will lower.

00:59:43 --> 00:59:43

We get into

00:59:47 --> 00:59:56

the where the question is, where did we get it wrong after the lives of the Sahaba Paulo? It's very good questions. Are you are you teacher? The teacher chef

00:59:57 --> 01:00:00

or chef or teacher? Where did we

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

get it wrong.

01:00:02 --> 01:00:41

We lost track of these values I just said. And there are three reasons why Muslims lost everything. three reasons. And one of them is in the Hadith of the prophets, Allah sentiment very clearly. The prophets I said went to a Masjid in Medina to visit them. The person would not just sit in the machine waiting for a mic. He would engage his people, he would visit them visit their communities, he would engage with people, he would not just be waiting in the masjid for giving a talk. He would be active in the society. So he went to go visit a community by the name of Ben Amalia, and he prayed in a Masjid and he made three doors. He said, Oh, Lord, don't destroy my nation, like you

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

destroyed the previous people like one one destruction. So last month accepted the storm. Yes, okay. They will not be destroyed. Then the prophets I said my reason and he said, Oh Allah, don't allow them to drown all like new headaches, and the loss of how to answer this door. Then, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made, saying Allahu Allah to

01:01:01 --> 01:01:08

Allah don't allow their animosity to cause differing and splintering among them. And Allah did not answer that door.

01:01:10 --> 01:01:11

And don't you see this happening?

01:01:12 --> 01:01:21

Don't see this happening. Why? Because Allah wants us to work. It is the most hardest thing for you to come together with someone you disagree with.

01:01:22 --> 01:01:34

Today, we were in the museum of how this country came together. So how long, one of the great leaders of the scholars he said the hardest task we have is not facing our enemies.

01:01:35 --> 01:01:46

The hardest task we have is to bring all of these people together 300 tribes, north and south, east and west, all of us to come together. This is the hardest task we have. Well, it was right, because he knows.

01:01:48 --> 01:02:03

He knows sila. This is number one to overcome our differences. Even though we disagree staunchly. If you can do that we will be the greatest of people. The second thing is two things destroyed Islam. two things. Number one, piano,

01:02:05 --> 01:02:07

piano, treachery.

01:02:09 --> 01:02:18

treachery, corruption, preferring yourself over your society, for your own benefit for your own gain this destroyed Islam, people sold

01:02:20 --> 01:02:38

countries because of this. I will give you one example. It literally made me cry. This example Sahaja Yogi, as you all know, a Kurdish man who brought the oma together and brought it together and brought Islam back to put after 92 years, there was no event in Muslim

01:02:39 --> 01:02:44

92 years. He brought Islam back against the Crusaders.

01:02:47 --> 01:03:07

There's at least as I mentioned last Saturday, 100 a lot of them back then there was no other 92 years. You know what Luxo was used as a horse stable like horse stable to this day. If you visit machine locks law, if you go to marijuana on the bottom floor, you will see on the bottom of the pillars, hooks where they used to hook the animals reins. It was used as a horse table.

01:03:08 --> 01:03:18

But Salahuddin up because of all of the principles that we mentioned, brought the Muslims together, and he, he brought them back to the holy lands of what's

01:03:19 --> 01:03:21

right after him.

01:03:22 --> 01:03:25

Right after him, the ayyubid

01:03:26 --> 01:03:27

state Kingdom

01:03:28 --> 01:04:00

started to fight among one another who would be the next leader. Right after him. Three of his nephew started to fight with one another, and one of them whose name was El Carmen, who surely should be enough because you know what he did. He went to the Crusaders, and made a deal and packed with them, and said to them, I will give you the keys to Jerusalem to apply to codes. If you come help me to fight against my cousin's

01:04:02 --> 01:04:16

a war that was spelt with the blood and prayers and dirt, and sweat of Shahada of hundreds of 1000s was given away, because of the personal benefit of one, one man.

01:04:17 --> 01:04:30

The Crusaders rolled with 500 nights into Jerusalem and took the city 500 only was alladhina uv spent his entire life for this one task Alhamdulillah we got it back again after that.

01:04:31 --> 01:04:51

But this teaches you this teaches you one one person who's taken over by shavon for self benefit, self gain can destroy society. And the other one is, this is treachery. This is treachery, meaning what you prefer your enemies to your own brothers. And the last one is in fighting.

01:04:52 --> 01:04:53

In fighting

01:04:54 --> 01:04:59

and fighting, this will destroy us. This is why we lost our values. So this is why we need a society.

01:05:00 --> 01:05:26

To start from the ground, start from the seal of the prophets lie Selim, and the whole affair Rashidi. Know your history and raise yourself and your family with the prophetic society's values are often added. When you raise a society with the same values, we're all just the same values, those values will not change. There's no matter the key to values, right? There's no matter of hanafy we're all handled on one method.

01:05:27 --> 01:05:55

Right the matter of the prophets, I send them in our modality, our values are Islam. And that is why we need to stop arguing over these ridiculous mechanical issues. You put your hand here or put your hand here, you raise your finger up, or you put your finger down, you celebrate the profits love or you don't celebrate the profits love. All of this is distraction from shaitan. All of this is distraction. All of this is causing us more difficulty and hardship.

01:05:56 --> 01:05:58

All of this is valid difference of opinion.

01:05:59 --> 01:06:04

There are animals of this arm of this country, they different over it. It's okay.

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

But loving one another is priceless.

01:06:08 --> 01:06:14

to work together is something that is beyond the differences that we have this is the answer. Hold on, hold on.

01:06:38 --> 01:06:39


01:06:59 --> 01:07:23

This is beautiful question. In a multicultural society like Nigeria, where we have our non Muslim brothers and sisters, how do we establish a prophetic society in which the other segments of society will not be hurt? Right? So Pamela, when you read the sila, this is exactly what the prophets I saw them establish Exactly. Because why we need to speak the language of universal benefits.

01:07:25 --> 01:08:09

Every person in this society wants opportunity. Every benefit every person in the society wants security, wants education for their children, wants, the security and just the ability to interact with one another as equal citizens. This is Islam speak this language. This is the language that will bring hearts together. So when we implemented the prophetic values, that's first on us, we don't throw it on other people. The most ignorant of human beings in our society today, what are they trying to do? They're trying to establish laws before they establish hearts. You know what I shut up Ilan has said, she said I swear by a law. If the first thing of the Quran was revealed, to

01:08:09 --> 01:08:17

stop committing Zina, which is * outside of marriage, and to stop drinking alcohol, she said, I swear by Allah, we would have not done it.

01:08:19 --> 01:08:45

This is the habia I show our mother. She said we would have not done it. She said until a law revealed in the Quran, the verses about gender and not what the purpose of life, the meaning of our Islam connecting to a las panatela the divine window when the hearts became soft, and they realize their purpose, and this value in prophetic society was built. He said that they accepted the loss. We have now people the ignorant tour going the other way.

01:08:46 --> 01:09:12

The prophets I said them It says in the end of times they will come people they read the Quran, they will not go beyond their throats. You know what this means? They don't understand it. They didn't understand it. One one final way to answer your question we learned from you by brother. We learned from you the people of Nigeria are the example and role models of this oma of how to live in a multicultural society. Well, like you've been doing it for years for generations. Worse we're learning from you.

01:09:13 --> 01:09:34

How you coexist and you're like Ross Yes, we need you to write to write books about this. This is where you can excel in the oma and I want you to understand one thing when the prophets I said them I came to Medina how many Muslims do you think there were in the entire world in the form of Islam? How many Muslims do you think they were guess? Brother

01:09:36 --> 01:09:37

how many Muslims do you think there were

01:09:41 --> 01:09:41


01:09:44 --> 01:09:45

I can't hear

01:09:46 --> 01:09:49

you don't have any idea a number give me a number number guess

01:09:50 --> 01:10:00

1000 20,000 my brother 1000 are you guys are good Mashallah. Very good. Okay, about 818 one of my

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

Teachers did a research on this 818 guess what the vast majority of them were even from the onslaught of people. That means in 13 years of Islam, almost less than 400 people accepted Islam.

01:10:13 --> 01:10:29

And the majority of them were from the onslaught of 500 of them. Welcome to this lesson lolani said him when he came to Medina 500 narrated by Abu naureen in his in his work, okay enough. So 818 that means what the prophets I send them was a minority in the Medina society.

01:10:31 --> 01:10:43

But with that minority he had, he was the one in power, and with the values he taught, by the end when the prophet SAW sentiment passed away, Abu I mentioned there was 100,000 Sahaba. in Medina.

01:10:44 --> 01:10:49

The society accepted Islam. Why? Because we lived values before we drop laws on people's heads.

01:10:51 --> 01:11:06

We live Islam. And I will tell you one final story, there's a woman she went through a very bad divorce case from in Britain. So what does she do? A lot of people do interesting things. She left everything. She went to Indonesia in a small island away from everybody lived there.

01:11:07 --> 01:11:09

Why? Ask her a lot.

01:11:10 --> 01:11:44

She went there. She said, I got so sick. I thought it was going to die on my deathbed. She said every day I would walk in this in the morning and I would see this this Indonesian lady, she does not speak. She does not speak English. She said one day she didn't see me one day, two days, three days because I was sick. I was in my home, I was going to die of some stomach ailment. So she said that that woman asked about me until she found me in my home. And she she said that I knew that she didn't she knew that I wasn't okay. Because she was going through a very bad divorce. So she was not well, she would you know, get you could tell from somebody interactions. So she said Finally,

01:11:46 --> 01:12:07

she said this woman came to me and cooked food with her own hands. And she would feed me morning and evening until I became better. One day when she came in the morning that day. I don't know what language she's saying what she's saying she just she held me like a mother. And she said that as if she knew the pain I felt. She said I started to weep and cry.

01:12:08 --> 01:12:16

All of the worry I had was released as one Muslim cared. You know, she said, this was the face of Islam for me for the rest of my life.

01:12:17 --> 01:12:26

This was the face of Islam for me for the rest of my life. May Allah guide her to Islam. There's one woman in Britain who is a journalist.

01:12:27 --> 01:12:31

Okay. You know how she accepted Islam? Because those who took her

01:12:32 --> 01:12:38

Muslims who are not good Muslims, they kidnapped her, but they said we will let you go under one condition. You read the Quran.

01:12:40 --> 01:12:44

You read the Quran. So she went and read the Koran. And she accepted Islam.

01:12:48 --> 01:12:52

Even thieves vahagn Allah, Who even live by some value,

01:12:53 --> 01:13:24

by some God, we just need to live it my brothers and sisters. If you treat every person in the street, I swear, the one who's serving you and the restaurant, you treat them with good manners. You ask them directly. Thank you, my brother, God bless you. It's okay to say that one man came to mount Mohamad and said, Can I say economical law to a Christian? May God honor you? He said yes. Why you say God honor you in Islam. God honor you in making your affairs right? These words are good. It's part of Islam. Do we say this day to day when we see our Christian brothers and sisters? No, we don't say that.

01:13:26 --> 01:13:30

There's this we're too mechanical. We've lost the values.

01:13:31 --> 01:13:35

So all we have to do is go back to this now allow us to put Atomy

01:13:48 --> 01:13:50

insha Allah, Allah allow us to come back here again this

01:13:53 --> 01:14:22

time that kiss you don't even want to Kofi allama can handle Islam a llama can handle an email. A llama can handle an animal meaning a llama can handle an animal see me? Allah, Allah, we thank you for Islam. We thank you for email. We thank you for allowing us to be believers. We thank you for allowing us to be the followers of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, we thank you for allowing us to gather us in this lesson. All of preserve our Islamic datamine Allah preserves the lands of the Muslims will not preserve Nigeria will not preserve the Muslims in this blistered land while I grant them here in this dunya and akhira Allah preserve their risk and their families all I'll take
