You're listening to Ramadan reflections but with the same money this summer, Mufti Hussain will be teaching the Hadith intensive, students will study the different methods of compilation and preservation of ahaadeeth. The major role female scholars have played in Hadeeth preservation, the biography of famous Hadith narrators, as well as different collections and excerpts from famous heavy texts like Sahil Bahati. For more information visit Hadeeth intensive.com Hello Haman hamdulillah

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

Hungary Allahu Akbar, da da da da da da da

00:00:36--> 00:00:40

da. Ba foil early hilinski was heavy he left Korea and added

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

over the past few days, we've been spending this time of our hearts.

00:00:47--> 00:01:06

Talking about our beloved Habib said a lot while he was still learning about our profits for the love army he was seldom discussing the virtues of remembering the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and sending Salawat upon him. Today will be our last discussion on this topic before we move on to the next subject inshallah, who knows is tomorrow

00:01:07--> 00:01:13

when we read for the walk upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or when we focus on the eye of surah

00:01:14--> 00:01:30

Allah subhanho wa Taala commands of two things in the law hola melodica who use for Luna Allah Navy? Yeah, you will Latina among the two commands Come, follow Allah He was the limit Athena, to independent two unique commands.

00:01:31--> 00:02:09

The first command is send follow lots upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Generally when we translate the word follow up, the English word uses salutations. But the truth is, neither do I or you know what that word even means? Like what does salutations mean? You don't use saluting someone like we don't use that word in common English. So in order to understand what the word Fallout actually means, I want to first define it in Adobe, and then redefine it in English. In order to be the word Fallout comes in many, many, many meanings. If you were to just look at how the Koran uses the word Fallout and how the worst product is used, in the Hadith of the Prophet

00:02:09--> 00:02:52

sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, you will find it being used in over 15 unique definitions. How many 15 one five. And that's a common thing in Arabic language. By the way, one word represents multiple things. For example, the word I mean, it means the eye but it also refers to spring, right? The water that comes from the ground, the word Mola, it can mean the master, it can also mean the servant, multiple meanings, in the Arabic language. So the word follow out comes in multiple meanings, but the US of the root meaning of Salah is even in prayer, the prayer is a lot that we read, the root meaning of that word is the actual meaning of that word is a do arch invocate into

00:02:52--> 00:03:27

supplicate. Now, sending fellow out the problem. The problem is that a lot of money within a means that a person is praying for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But however, this word has a unique meaning and the scholars when defining it, there are multiple opinions. They say when you send subtle lots upon the Prophet sallallaahu it was sent on what this actually means is you are asking a lot of how to whom without the shower, His mercy upon the Prophet went along while he was done, Yala shower all the hate and good and Buttercup and your mercy upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam elevate his rank, meaning you're asking good for him.

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

On the other side comes the word ascena. Salaam means to be safe, right to be to be in the state of peace as well. Okay, but it means to be secure to be safe. salaam aleikum, Lana takle, Jilin, PHP with you, we don't want anything to do with the ignorant people. You know, I seek peace from you. You seek peace from me, meaning I want protection from you. In you want protection for me? So when you think of salaat think of it more as an active prayer. Oh, Allah give. And when you when you say set up, it's as if you're making a prayer of protection. Oh, well law protect. I recall once when I was with my teacher shift,

00:04:05--> 00:04:27

and we were driving, and in England, they have these roundabouts. If you've ever been to the Europe, it's a very confusing thing. But apparently it has a lot of benefit and keeping the traffic moving. So we were at a roundabout and I was pulling in and this guy almost went into me. So right when he went in, almost went into me, my teacher, he said, ooh, Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim.

00:04:28--> 00:04:38

I thought that was an awkward vlog to make right before an accident. But nonetheless, I just let it fly. I kept driving a little while later, he said to me, saying Do you know what our altavilla means?

00:04:40--> 00:05:00

So this is now by now I had studied 15 years, you know, gone through many interesting and deep sciences through my studies. And him asking this question, do you know what that means? To me was a throw off. I was like, You know what, what does he like everybody knows what that means. Why are you asking me that question? So I said to him rosabella means I seek protection.

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

In a law firm shape on a regime, the one who has been kicked out the one who's been cursed. So he said to me, no, no, that's the translation. I'm not asking you for the amount of translation I'm asking you for the man that the meaning is the difference between the two. He's that the meaning of the law, let me explain it to you. In my words. Imagine a child walking with his parents hand in hand. And as they're walking, they cut a corner, the child pulls his hand from his mother's hand and runs. And as he runs in front of him, he sees a pitbull jump out the child at the child. Now imagine how terrified that child is, at that moment, terrified, scared his dog there, the child runs around,

00:05:37--> 00:06:11

and it runs, turns around and runs back to its mother. He says, When the child reaches its mother and the mother gets on her knees and embraces a child and gives the child the promise that nothing will happen to you as long as I'm protecting you. He said you know the security that child feels at that time when the father embraces this child saying nothing will happen to you. He says that's the security we're asking from a law when we say the law he ministered on the machine. Yeah, I love the dogs after me chiffons after me he's coming to bite me really hard and I need a hug. I need protection. I need some love. And Allah subhanahu wa tada is offering his love offering this

00:06:11--> 00:06:50

protection to anyone who seeks it from Allah subhana wa Tada. So as we are saying, y'all Allah protect the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Some scholars have been telling the difference between one defining the difference between folate and Salaam, something that follows the virtue the benefit of it is when a person sends follows upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in return Allah subhanho wa Taala sends 10 salam upon him. You pray for mercy once for the Prophet of Allah, Allah subhanahu wa tada sends 10 mercies your way. However, when it comes to the prophets for the long run, he will sell them and sell them. When you give Suriname to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa

00:06:50--> 00:07:25

sallam the reward of that is that the Prophet of Allah gives his salon back in return. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Well, I'm a Christian, peace be with you to some scholars when defining the difference between salatu salam because salaat is a is via Allah. So you're asking Allah for mercy, Allah subhanho wa Taala sends the mercy. As for Sam, it's a greeting. It's directly for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That's why when you stand in front of the grave of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, the original greeting is a ceremony criado School of Law. Then in addition to that, we also add a Salatu was salam, O Allah, Allah, but the original greeting is

00:07:26--> 00:07:40

the greeting that you would give to another believer to another to another, to another Muslim scholar esta la Monica Rasulullah Peace be with you on messenger of Allah when you're in front of the grave of the Prophet solomani with them. Another thing I touched on yesterday, and I want to further discuss that today.

00:07:41--> 00:08:20

That when we read put a lot in our prayer in our salon, we say Allahumma salli, Allah, Muhammad, Allah, Allah Muhammad Kama for later, by the way, let me just make one quick point here, when you're reading to us, and particularly for those people who are aware of the Arabic language, and I've practiced it a little bit, it's important that you focus on the pronounciation of your laws of the letters of the words that you're pronouncing. And the reason why I mentioned this right here. This may seem like a random tangent, it's not. I'm not talking about the out of place, but this one has an impact. I was once in a community and one brother came to me. He said to me that you know, I

00:08:20--> 00:08:59

learned a lot upon the Prophet when I was a child. I'd like to read it to you so you can correct me if I'm making any mistakes. I said Go ahead. And he said Allahumma salli, ala Muhammad, Allah Hola. Hola, como de la bella. For those of you who understand Arabic what you know is celaya Sulu means to withdraw a sword, say from a saloon means and unsheathed sword Allahumma salli ala Muhammad with the scene will translate as Oh Allah withdraw your sword against Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you change it and you read it the right way. Allahumma folly with a thought not not becomes What? Oh Allah, shower your mercy upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hum de la liga Terra.

00:08:59--> 00:09:00

Haytham de la

00:09:02--> 00:09:07

comunidad Katya just a little deviation can have a big cause big effect in the meaning by the way.

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

Along with suddenly Allah Muhammad Allah Allah Muhammad Kama, so late Allah Rahim Allah, Allah Ibrahim, so why do we say Oh Allah, Sen mercy upon the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as you said mercy upon Ibrahim Alayhi Salam why Ibrahim on Eastern on why not another prophet? Why not the Curiosity Salaam other money Salaam Musa alayhis salam is the Elisa Lam these are all great prophets of Allah. Why specifically Ibrahim alayhi salam. The reason is because

00:09:37--> 00:09:41

every human being has a role model. Our role model as Muslims as who

00:09:44--> 00:09:57

can allow computers to rely on us and our role model without doubt is the messenger sent along while it was sent him. However the prophets that Allahu Allah who was sent him as role models who love the carnage on hasenhuttl T. Ibrahim,

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

the prophet Mohammed Salah

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

It was set on top role model was Ibrahim Ali set up. He always imitated and remembered Ibrahim monies to them. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam remembered that, that Ibrahim alayhis salam made for him before the Prophet even came into existence before he was even born. Hundreds of years ago, Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was standing side by side with his little boy, Smiley's salon. They just finished the construction of the Kaaba and they stood together and they made the law in an empty desert and the glory that Ibrahim Ali Salaam honey love made was robina wa t him rasuna milham and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the translation of that lies Oh Allah sent amongst

00:10:40--> 00:10:51

these people a messenger one day from amongst them. The only prophet of Allah ever born in Mecca was Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's my knowledge Salam was not born in my karma. Karma is mine and Islam

00:10:52--> 00:11:25

was not born in my karma, karma. The only prophet after that why there are humanists and I'm ever born in Mocambo carnamah was the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam always remembered that favor of Ibrahim on his Sunnah making a law from him for him at the end of the construction of the Kaaba, you know, standing in front of the Kaaba, yeah, Allah send Mohammed to these people. And the problem is that a lot of money was said and he stood in front of the Kaaba one day and to his companions. He said, I know that Allah to be evil Rahim. I am the result of the law that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam made hundreds of years hundreds of years

00:11:25--> 00:11:34

ago. Well, bushrod Isa, and I am a result of the glad tidings that rissani salaam give to his people, which is also referenced in the Quran, and sort of fluff.

00:11:35--> 00:12:05

And there are many similarities between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ibrahim Ali Salaam, the prophet that allamani was sent him. He was inspired by a prize money, Sam for many things. If you look at their lives, the prophets life sallallahu wasallam Ibrahim, it sounds like you will find many similarities. Many things were common between the two. For example, you will notice that when Ibrahim Ali Salaam was sent to the world, there was no believer left on the face of the earth who believes in Allah the way a law should be believed in.

00:12:06--> 00:12:43

That's why the narrations mentioned that the only believers alive were three. Even on him on Islam, his wife Sadat, and his nephew puts his nephew's name. Luke Elisa, many people don't know who's Ali Salaam was Abraham Elisa Lam's nephew, that these three people were the only believers alive on the earth. Similarly, when it came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam true Iman had left the world and we learned this from the narration of Samana plasti, where his teacher said to him, now you will find pure monotheism in Medina manolito going away through a prophet will come, he will migrate there until he comes wait there for him when he comes believing him and these will be signs

00:12:43--> 00:12:48

of his you can read it in the narration of Southern mountain fantasy, which is a very lengthy, long narration. Similarly,

00:12:49--> 00:13:25

another commonality between both is that both communities both families, Ibrahima, asylums, people and the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam people were both idol worshipers. Not only that Ibrahim alayhis salam, his father was the maker of the idols, he was the one who used to crack them. And the Prophet sallahu Wa Dae was one of his family. The police were the custodians of the idols. Similarly, even on him on a salon, he came to his father first. And his father was the first to reject Him. And the problem is that a lot while he was still almost first rejected by Abu lahab, his uncle and the uncle isn't a monster of the other in the absence of the Father. It's as if his father

00:13:25--> 00:13:53

was the first person to reject Him. Ibrahim Ali Salam then went to his immediate family, the prophet said a lot of money was put on went to his immediate family, Ibrahim alayhis salam went to the people, the prophets of Allah who it was said and went to the people around him and they said, I went on the mountain, and he looked into the stars, the moon and the sun and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sat and thought head off for days and nights reflecting over the stars, the moon and the sun on the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala even though he might he said, I'm the first person to believe in him was his wife sada the first person to believe in the Prophet Muhammad

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

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was his wife. Please show the love on her. Ibrahim alayhis salaam was the first to migrate for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was also made sure to hit it off from Morocco karma to Madina munawwara Ibrahim Ali Salaam had to harems Hara Maki and Heron could see right you guys know the other haram Marisa calm

00:14:16--> 00:14:21

we all know how to MCO we all know how to Medina but what's the third one what's that third big question mark

00:14:23--> 00:14:36

puts much as an extra male also cannot say I'm into this law it's Ramadan I make it from my heart because I've never been and I have a desire to go make a lot of tickets all too much the lotsa Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed us with a bottle cocktail.

00:14:37--> 00:14:58

The other day someone was going to much less upside I said to him, when you go there give my Salaam to say that it was on him on a set up. Right? Because so many prophets have a lot buried there. You guys know that right? How many ambia are buried in the Holy Land in the sacred small area, but Mubarak less and the Quran talks about how Allah who will inria whom it is

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

When you look at the two Ibrahim Allah and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you find that they both had to Harlem's Ibrahim alayhis. Salam had to Harlem's the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had two items, they shared one item that was that was together, what was that Mecca, but as for the independent, and the unique thing about Madina, munawwara one of my missions is to say, had the purpose of the law while he was sort of lived only in Mocambo karma, and if that was his only harm, someone could say that the sanctity of that city was not because of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It was because of Ibrahim on Islam, but then Allah told the

00:15:33--> 00:16:07

prophet to migrate to Medina and to establish that the sanctity of the city is only all Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. other prophets were not granted sanctuaries like this. But the honor of the Prophet Muhammad said aloud is that almost such no other prophet lived there. It was his city. It was his community. It's the place where the Prophet said a long line he will sit on the rest until the day of judgment, you find that both of them were made to sacrifice their own sons. It's not a salon is sacrificed at the hands of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lost his own very child, Ibrahim, who passed away in the hands of the prophets of Allah

00:16:07--> 00:16:45

while he was sent him, you find that Ibrahim Ali Salaam was thrown in the fire by his people. And when he was on his way down in that fire Jimmy naughty Salaam came and said, Can I help you in any way? And Ibrahim Ali Salaam said help from you don't need it. Help from Allah always dependent on Allah subhanho wa Taala has to be Allah wanyama Joaquin, I need a loss of Hannah Montana. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam similarly was stoned by the people. And the angel that was responsible of the mountains came and said give me the command. I will squash life between these mountains sandwich them, destroy them and to be naughty Salaam said as for the Prophet said As for

00:16:45--> 00:17:00

you, I don't need any of your help. Allah subhanho wa Taala will guide them when the time is right. The same. The same pain was in their heart, the pain the prophets of Allah while he was sitting head for the oma was a very similar pain that he brought him on. He said I'm also had for his people. And I always say that the most

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

the most interesting

00:17:05--> 00:17:40

similarity or you can see that this one point really shows how connected the messenger so a lot of money was sent and most people are humanists around what kind of inspiration he took from him. But our humanity is certain that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had a child, what did he name him? Even though he That in itself speaks volumes. You can imagine the prophets that a lot while it was set up now after all the other children they were born earlier on, right? This is the child that was born after Nepal. The problem is that a lot while he was holding this child, and now he has so much luck, but what I'm being revealed and the depth of his knowledge, and he sits to

00:17:40--> 00:18:16

choose a name and that of all the names of prophets that Allahu alayhi wa sallam chooses which one does he choose? Ibrahim, which shows you that the rank that this man Ibrahim Ali Salaam had suffice to say that if you want to understand how great of a person and inspiration Ibrahim on a stood on was, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not mention him as an individual in the Quran. Allah introduces him being equivalent to a whole nation in the Ibrahima kind of mutton. He was a nation and himself he wasn't a one man show. He was a whole nation. The Prophet Ibrahim Alayhi Salam before he passes away,

00:18:17--> 00:18:19

he gathers his children together

00:18:20--> 00:18:57

and he says to them metabolism in body after I die, what will you do? Who will you worship after me? And the prophets of Allah wa t who was said I'm as he leaves this world, he gathers us to haba together one last time following in that tradition of Ibrahim Ali surah, right till the end. And he says to them, be mindful of your Salah and be just with those who you have authority over and one narration the prophecy soon before he passed away, just you know a few hours before he said to them that make sure you stick firm to the oneness of Allah. Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah. Ibrahim Ali Salam was an inspiration for the pastor Allahu alayhi wa

00:18:57--> 00:19:33

sallam. His acceptance by Allah was no secret. The scholars they write over 40,000 prophets were born through the lineage of Ibrahim and he set out how many did I say, over 40,000 prophets were born just through his children, such a high rank Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him and the prophets of Allah while he was some desire, that a similar rank being given to him, in a similar rank be given to his oma, if the province that Allahu Allah He was Saddam's inspiration was Ibrahim alayhis salam. What about people like you and I? Shouldn't we be inspired by great men like the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam written men like Ibrahim Ali Salam and all the other prophets

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

that are mentioned in the schools in the Quran and the Sunnah. Make this a night, that you make a commitment to yourself, that your love for the prophets will remain forever inshallah and Aziz, you will always say Allahumma salli, Allah Muhammad, and read that before you go out at the end of your day in your time allotted for your a bother and not only upon the profit. In one narration the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the companions that send salutations and peace upon the other

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

profits just as you centered upon me too. There was one lady, she accepted Islam she was Christian. She said to me, that I always see Muslims sending Salawat upon prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But what about the Saudis?

00:20:13--> 00:20:15

Why didn't you guys send follow up on him?

00:20:16--> 00:20:49

So I said to her, Well, every time we say the name of the Prophet, what do we say? And he said, that's us conveying our greeting. But as for you asking, Is there a particular Hadith that tells us to send solo ads upon other prophets? I'm going to have to look into this, and I kid you not I searched and searched and searched, until finally I came across the narration, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the Sahaba, that as you send Salawat upon me, also sending upon other prophets as well. We're pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us the love of the prophets, Allah subhana wa tada teaches us their knowledge, Allah Subhana Allah allows us to implement the

00:20:49--> 00:20:59

inheritance of theirs their knowledge, and Allah subhana wa tada resurrects us all with them in the highest guardians of Paradise was set along with Allah Allah. Mohammed salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa Taala.
