aka Milan via lol early this year was probably about
yesterday we were going through some of the rights of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam upon the oma.
I went through a few yesterday and I wanted to go through a few today.
A part of the right of the process that Allahu Ani who was sitting upon the oma
is that not only do we love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but we also extend our love to the people who were around the prophets that along while he was sitting during his lifetime.
Specifically, the companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In one narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the companions, Allah, Allah Fie of Javi. Be mindful of Allah be mindful of Allah when it comes to my companions, that Sufi to whom a lot of them embody, do not make my companions, our target of your poisonous words, from an hubba hubba hubba hubba home. Whoever expresses love to my companions, it's actually because they love me on my other home. Fabi Bolivia Bilodeau home, and whoever has any anger or animosity toward my companions, it's actually because they have enmity towards me. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that my
attorney, whoever has hurt or made an attempt to harm my companions has been reality hurt me or any other law and whoever hurts me has made an attempt to hurt Allah subhanahu wa tada Oh my other love for you.
And whoever tries to hurt Allah subhanahu wa tada will be held accountable by Allah subhana wa tada surely very soon. Let our tongues be pure, if any false accusations or any harsh words, any disrespectful language when it comes to addressing the companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our tongues and our hearts should only express never ending love, a lot of emotion and respect for them. And this is all then this also continues on to the to the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know,
there are certain groups within the Muslim world who have claimed to hijack the family of the prophets of Allah Juan Ava's to them, it says if they have sole rights to praise Fatima, the alarm on her and say no, the Allah one and hustlin with your loved one and not enough alone one, one group, exaggerated in love for them and respect for them to a degree that another group decided not to love them at all. I've sat with people who've told me there was a person who was having a child I said, he asked me what should I need my child? I said, How about husband or saying these were the names? The problem is that a lot of money was spent on children, his grandchildren, Beautiful Names.
He said, No, no, I won't name my children that. And I asked him why? And he said, because these names have become staples for certain deviant groups. And I don't want my children to be associated with those groups. I say just because someone expresses their love for a particular hobby does not give you the right or neither should you even expected for yourself to abandon that companion. What if tomorrow some islamophobe attaches themselves over? They don't have your loved one. When are you going to abandon that's the hobby of the Prophet sallallahu. It was sudden, this became a trend in Islamic history. By the way. There was a time during the period of Imam Shafi at the LA era, where
expressing your love for the immediate family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was a sign of being from a particular group that you were from that group. That's why you mentioned the virtue of alley of your loved one and plucked him out of your low honor and the other family immediate close family members of the office that allowed him this became a problem because the majority understand about Gemma, stop talking about the family members of the province in a long line he was sort of they stopped giving lectures on their virtue, stop calling people towards their love. And it wasn't my obsession with the law who stood on a pulpit and publicly said something profound. He said
in Ghana rift boo boo Ali Mohammed bin, Felicia sakala, nee Rafi, there is it means to love the family of the prophets that along with it was to them that you are from a deviant group that let me tell the world that I'm a deviant person because I'm madly in love with the family of the prophets that allow them no one can steal their love from me. No one's gonna tell me I can't talk about them. I can't talk about their virtue. We will continue to name our daughters is about the love of God.
Love Your love Anna Maria love on her 14 out of your lawn after these great women we will continue to name them after these names. We will continue to name our children after the Great Adventure another prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his his immediate and distant family members because these were people who are beloved to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we have love for them to inshallah HaNavi before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away, one of the last advices he gave to the companions, he said, Be mindful when it comes to my family, take care of them. Last Words, amongst his last words, be mindful literati. When it comes to my family. My
immediate goals were closely related to me and be careful when it comes to them. Don't extend your tongue on them. The greatest one of the greatest rights that we have the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam demands from us and we owe to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that we keep ourselves engaged in the follow up, I'm going to be sent along while he was sending follow up on me for a lot while he was sort of Allahumma salli ala Muhammad, and this is what I referred to earlier on twice already in our Ramadan series as making blog for the purpose of allamani with them, this was a reference point I made earlier on and here we're touching base with that today. keeping
yourself engaged and asking Allah subhana wa tada to elevate his rank even more, continue to shower His mercy upon him. It is a right upon every one of us, aside from the rights of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because the command of sending salutations upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is embedded in the Quran itself. A lot of what Allah says in the law how Allah you get to who you fall Luna nadie Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala and the angels send follow upon the messenger upon the Prophet yeah you will Latina among all those who believe follow Allah He was suddenly Moses Lima, then salutations upon him, send greetings and peace upon him. This is a command
that comes directly from Allah subhana wa Tada. And imagine this honor for a moment, one of my messiahs, he used to say something very beautiful. He used to say, if you study the lives of all the prophets,
and study all the unique honors that Allah subhanahu wa tada gave them and study their miracles. What you'll notice is that the honor that was given to them the miracle that was given to them, a lot of them have what Allah gave an equivalent honor and miracle to our prophet or even better. Then he would go through this lengthy list, he would say, look at other monies Salaam, Allah subhanho wa Taala made him must do the melodica Allah told the angels to prostrate in front of him with God It didn't matter.
What is wrong
with God rabuka maraca right when Allah subhanahu wa tada when your Lord said to the angels, boost you do prostrating from Allah subhana wa tada Lively's, all of them illustrated except for at least the shape on this was the honor that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave Adam and he said I must do the melodica Allah commanded the angels to prostrate in front of him, but when it comes to art, and he said a lot more it was sort of a loss of kind of hope that it doesn't just only tell the angels just kind of fell out upon him. Allah joins them himself in the law, how am I gonna eco Allah Himself joins when it comes to sending subtle water upon them to be sent along while he was in them. Think
of the honor of this I better think of the rank of this Avada our hearts and tongue have been buried in ascending Sarawak upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, someone came to me the other day and said, I didn't know that sending Salawat upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was even a thing outside prayer. I said, Of course it's a thing. Do you not know that Allah Himself is doing it in the love of my life?
And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Those who believe suddenly he let your justification of your faith be that you send salutations and you set your greeting you send your greetings upon the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Ani, who was sort of one of my teachers used to further expound that same teacher used to further expand on this. And he would say, you look at how musala salaam took his alcohol, he took a staff and he threw it in the water, what happened to the staff, what happened to the water, it split? He says the loss of Hata home without a he gave a similar miracle to the purpose of the law. While it was something he pointed towards the moon, and what happened to the moon. It split. But he says that miracle was
better than this one. The prophets miracle is greater than Muslims. Why? Because musala asylums miracle was carried to the people in front of him, while the prophets that Allahu alayhi wa sallam miracle was, but he there was far away and it wasn't only for the people of Mecca. anyone in the world that looked into the sky at that time What happened? they witnessed that miracle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he would continue on and on. And on the poet he captures this honor of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in a beautiful line of poetry, he says nikolina begin fill an army for the Latin for every prophet, there was a rank and honor that Allah gave them
a miracle that Allah subhana wa tada blessed them with liquidity in a deacon Phil unami for the Latin word Joomla to her much more akin to Mohammed II, and all of those honors and all those ranks.
gathered from my Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Then he finishes off by saying, Matt in Modesto Mohammedan Bhima Cala t wala kin medacta makalah t be Mohammadi. Today I have not praised the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my words are incapable of praising a being that Allah Himself praised. How can we ever praise someone that Allah praise? I mean, I standing in front of the Kaaba, was there a little Munchkin her newborn baby, his grandfather of the millennium is by her side, and they're thinking, what do we name this guy? What do we name this little boy? And what is what are they naming?
The one who's praised Mohammed, she had no idea how much her son was going to be praised. But there isn't a single prayer. But at the end of our prayer, we praise Him by saying Allahumma suddenly, Allah Mohammed, no matter how many people hate the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no matter how many images you draw against him, or how many foul videos or movies he made against him, that same day, believe it or not 500 to 1000 or maybe even more kids will be born and their parents will look at them and say, this guy's a Muhammad for sure. You can try this. And he wanted to be called Mohammed for that day, that child will be called Mohammed until the day that child died. I had a
friend who was from Somalia, and he had a son. And I asked him, what's your son's name? He said Mohammed a famine.
You know what that means? You guys don't get it. Do you know what Mohammed a family means? It means he had seven other kids. And guess what he named every one of them. He said this one Oh, he's homeless, his wife and had another kid and I was like, What's the name of this one? He's like this one. Oh, my heart. I can't accept any other name than Muhammad. They had a search box on in India, one of my my uncle and my uncle, sorry, one of my uncle's friends. He was telling me he said, I don't understand you, Pakistani people, you Indian people. So what's what's the problem is that every one of you is called Mohammed.
Because they have a culture and that part of the world, that no matter whatever the first name is before the first and they have another name. And what's the other name they put before that? Mohammed? If the person's name is Yusuf, what's the official name? Muhammad Yusuf? It's about what's the first name? Muhammad the coupon
for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Yeah, Johan Medina. amanu sallu alayhi.
Our tongues Martin medacta, Mohammed and Pima County. My tongue is incapable our words are incapable of praising the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when I came to Makati, the Mohammadi, but today by mentioning Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this gathering, we bring smiles to the faces, and we bring joy to the heart. And we have praise this gathering. You know, in order they say, Shama Illa Mustapha kado, Byeon, here are Chico Kalia Ramadan. Now when I talk about the descriptive nature of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it brings peace to the heart of those who love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, mas la camisa now, as I talk about the Prophet of Allah, I
enjoy Hassan Chico photocopied okuno sometimes they cry, sometimes they smile, because that's the nature of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam monophosphate Allahu Allah is to say every believer who says La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah has a spiritual string that connects them with a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they may or may not be aware of that string. But when you bring the discussion the mention of the purpose that a lot while it was them in front of them, watch he's to say you will see them smile, they themselves will know they're smiling, but their hearts and their faces are enjoy because you are talking about their beloved that they've been
kept so far away from Yeah, you
sallu alayhi wa sallam of Lima sun salutations upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now this brings a second discussion. And the second discussion it brings is what's the legal ruling of sending salutations upon the Prophet said allamani is sending out upon the Prophet for a long while it was sort of magic. Is it sooner? Is it Mr. Hart? What's the ruling of settings for walk upon a professor of law he was one of the great Muhammad Hafiz in 100 Allah Allah Allahu Allahu taala, who was the one of the greatest hottie in in Islamic history. For as long as Al Bukhari you will be taught and respected in this world, if the husband's name will always be mentioned, because he is
the greatest commentator on segment Bacardi. My teacher used to say law, he wrote about it, but that after political body, which was his book, he wrote about it, but it's actually what he what he practiced in another context. He said, after a political body was written, there is no commentator on Makati that can ever lecture or write on that book without making reference to this book. It's like the ultimate authority on second body in 100. And as Kalani was discussing this issue in his first full body, which is the multiple volume book, he says, the hokum the ruling of sendings follow up upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been differed upon by the scholars. And then he
says, What fee Astra to acquire, and there are how many opinions he says there are 10 opinions on the issue. Oh, well how old Nigeria and the Harmony Hub
What is moronic? He says the first opinion is by a jury who says that it is most The Hobbit is preferable. And he claims that there's a consensus on this even though as we just learned, there is no consensus because there are how many opinions 10 opinions. My teacher used to say anytime anyone claims consensus, know that there is no consensus because other than La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, Allah has not had,
we hadn't had consensus, which is a okay thing. It's not a blameworthy thing. Scholars come from different perspectives with different proofs and they hold different opinions. It's a very healthy thing.
Another opinion, the scholars they say, is that it is mandatory upon a person to stay. It's been a lot upon the province that a lot of while he was sitting at least once in prayer, that's one opinion. Another group of scholars, they say, it is necessary to send subtle watts upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he could only do it every time you raise your hands every time you ask for yourself. It's a right that you have presented a piece of a language it was said that before you ask for yourself, who do you ask for?
the progress of a loved one a one sentence doesn't add to that is made in which salutation is not sent upon me. That block is suspended. It doesn't reach Allah subhanho Madonna until you feel it with Aloma fanaticism Hammad, that's why you'll notice at the end of lectures, the Messiah will always say subhana
wa Salaam, an animal serene, follow us on Instagram anonymously. And then you know what son in law who da da da da da, da da da Mohammed. Ali was Hobbes marine. Always close off saltwater, saltwater newbie. Because until a person doesn't send Salutations, and doesn't make do and for the purpose of a long while it was sort of that drive itself is suspended. That's where from the etiquettes of law is that you start off by praising the law, then you send salutations upon the purpose of the law, why didn't you make the art for the amount you make to offer yourself you send consultations upon the profit, and then you finish off your draw by praising the loss of Hannah Montana, at the
beginning and end of your block. You start with printing a lot, you end up raising a lot. The second thing you do is for watering to be the second to last thing you do is follow up to be the reason why they give this etiquette is because they say if the beginning and end is so perfect, it's so beautiful. Everything in between will also be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah is not going to reject your law for the purpose of the law while he was talking about the beginning, a law is not going to reject your life for the purpose of the law to cinema at the end. So if the beginning and end is accepted, what about
inshallah Nazim that will also be accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Some scholars they say that it is mandatory for a person to say salaat upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at least once in their lifetime, then that's that they say it's recommended as much as you can. Some say at least once in a gathering, when you hear the name of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in a gathering at least once you say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Then after that, as you wish, Masha is also always say to us, that every time you hear the name of the Prophet sallallahu Ani he was sent him the bare minimum you can do the bare minimum you can do is say something Allahu alayhi wa
sallam. Make this a part of your Ramadan routine. Make this a part of your blog. Make this a part of your schedule. And if you're wondering, is there any specific virtue for sending follow up on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did the Prophet ever tell us in the Hadith descends upon him. I'll share one narration with you today and tomorrow we'll cover many more narrations inshallah, the first narration I want to share with you today in one narration, when the eye of the Quran was revealed in the law, how Allah yukata who you saw Luna Island maybe? Yeah, you will Medina amanu sallu alayhi wa sallam sliema By the way, if you focus on the ayah you'll notice one thing. There
are two words using the ayah salaat in Salah. What are the two words?
solid and Sunnah. Note that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives solid from himself but a lot is not Gibson on from himself. Did you guys notice that?
In the lahoma
you saw lunarlon maybe there's a lot of sampling himself. Yes or no? No alone make of Sadat. Yeah, you're living in amanu sallu alayhi wa sallam Muslim, however, we're told to do both, so not incentive. Why is that? Well, the reason is because the meaning of Salaam comes in two forms. Either it comes in the meaning of peace or it comes in the meaning of submission. And there is no submission from Allah subhanho wa Taala to any of his creation. Therefore that word itself was not used in the if asked for salaat sending Merci, merci is only sent through Allah. So lots of I don't want that I say I am the originator of mercy and I will send it up on the proper sort of audio
system. There's an element there for those of you who have an understanding and understood the point that I was trying to make. It's a very deep and reflective point something you can really think over in terms of up and how to address language to Allah subhanho wa Taala and address the language to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When this ayah was revealed. The Companions they said not to set up forgetfulness
Ali Ali messenger of Allah we understand the concept of Sam because there were already staying in their prayers Santa Monica Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh ceremony Nevada de la Sol in shadow Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, they already knew that part. This is what is Allah? How do we send Sonata upon you? So the prophets of Allah while he was sent him said kulu, say Allahumma salli ala Muhammad, WA I, you know, the philosophy really at the end of our prayer, the Sahaba say we were taught this prayer by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, just as he would teach us a surah of the Quran, how to find how to find, you know, like letter by letter verse by verse to make sure it reaches
perfection. I close today's call center by reminding you of how lofty of a number and I use this word about that not because we worship departments in a lot while it was to them, but Allah subhanho wa Taala has made this an act of worship that Allah subhana wa tada will reward and 10 times just as you do any good deed in the Quran. Man Javid has another fella who should run value 10 times a reward when it comes to sending satellites upon the profit. Alarm multiplies that reward how many times the same thing once Allah Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah wa Santana upon you. This isn't an event of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we are simply making dua to Allah
subhanho wa Taala for the purpose of the lohani within remember this, the honor of this Eva is such that the Messiah underneath the ayah Surah Hassan they commented on it by saying in Allah tala m&r can be entered in by the FET bnst Allah subhanho wa Taala in this is telling you to do something that he started himself was doing well sinabi melodica could see and secondly, he told the honorable angels to engage in that form of a bother with a letter B Can you help me know and I mean, very Yeti Genie what NC and then Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered all of the believers not only in Sun, is there any mention of in Santa Maria to Jimmy Wednesday, the human beings and the gene kind for Carla
