Allahu Akbar Al Rahman

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

sanada ohata Milan via Allah Allah He was happy he lets me know that.

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

In the past few days we talked about believing in Allah subhanahu wa tada and believing in the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:00:52--> 00:01:35

Yesterday in particular, we talked about the favors the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam showered upon the oma favors that we've heard of, and that we've experienced in the past, and favours of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that we experienced today, the recitation of the Quran, which was given to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and great favorites of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that inshallah will as ease We will also experience on the Day of Judgment. Just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was kind and generous to the oma. The oma also has responsibilities towards the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there are certain books

00:01:35--> 00:02:14

certain rights, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has the right to demand from every one of his followers. Just as the relationship is between the child and the parent, where the parent is responsible of being obedient to the where the child is responsible of being obedient to the parent. The parent also has certain responsibility towards the child as well. It's a two way relationship. So similarly, the scholars have listed the rights that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has over his oma and at the top of that list, and I'll go through a few of them today inshallah and Aziz and continue on tomorrow. At the top of that list, lies believing in the Prophet

00:02:14--> 00:02:58

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam believing wholeheartedly that he was the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The Prophet said a lot of it he was seldom one day he said to the companions as narrative, to ballymun M and Avi, what are Ani Merton may glad tidings V to the person who believed in me after seeing me one time, meaning God glad tidings be for that person once who saw me and then that person believed in me, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, well, toolbar Lima M and ib 1am Jani Saba Murat, ma glad tidings v seven times for that person who did not see me. Yet that person believed in me, and I give you glad tidings and every one of you are

00:02:58--> 00:03:34

a part of the second law of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because we are people who have not seen the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, yet our Eman is strong and firm in him. The second thing, believing in the purpose that Allahu alayhi wa sallam should also manifest in loving the prophets of Allah Juan and he will send him the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, one of you cannot be a complete believer until I am more beloved to him. Meanwhile, he will one of the one nastiest marine that his father has child and all of mankind. What does that mean? What that means is that your heart yearns to be with the prophets of Allah while he was in your heart yearns

00:03:34--> 00:04:11

to learn about the prophets that along while he was in your heart yearns to imitate the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and every element of your life you want to get closer and closer. And if you're not sure what that means, I want you to think of something that you truly love today. Whatever it is in your life that you love today, and think of your attitude towards that thing. Be your child, your business, your car, your home, your hobby, your TV show, many of you that I've been, who have discontinued watching TV from the beginning of Ramadan are waiting until it eats I can start watching my TV shows again, because that pain of separation is weighing in on us. Think

00:04:11--> 00:04:27

about how that pain of separation should weigh in on you when it comes to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if we truly love the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said for a certain man couldn't a fee, he was the Halawa. Tell a man three things.

00:04:28--> 00:04:37

Whoever the whoever these three things exist within that person will find the sweetness of Ilan, developing yourself these three things, what are they the first thing

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

that Allah and His Messenger are more beloved to that person than anything other than the two. They are the most important they are more beloved than anything. If a person can truly find their heart in a place, we're aligned that will soon are the most beloved to you. You will taste the sweetness of a man. The second thing and you have an incredible life.

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

hula hula that a person loves something or he's connected to something. But the only reason why he's connected to that thing is because of the sake of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. The reason why you have your friends is because they make you better human beings. The reason why you like your tablet is because it allows you to read the Quran through it. The reason why you come to the machines because you want to get closer to Allah, everything around you ultimately connects you back to Allah subhanho wa Tada. And the third thing the progress that Allahu alayhi wa sallam says, that a person dislikes a life of Kufa a life of ungratefulness and praise to Allah that He never ever returns back

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

to it

00:05:36--> 00:06:15

you know, all of us here Can I can admit that life before I'm Yvonne was very different from from life inner Milan. We should ask a lot to save us from that life. The life that we were in before Ramadan we should pray to Allah Allah. I disliked that life even though it was a part of it. Even though my heart may yearn it, I may desired it. But deep inside me I dislike it. Like a person who's addicted to a particular drug that destroys them. They know what's bad for them. They dislike it, but their heart yearns it just because there's an addiction to it. Yeah, Allah, we've become drug addicts to the dunya Yala. We've become drug addicts to everything that distracts us from you. Yeah,

00:06:15--> 00:06:54

a lot discontinue our addiction to those things. So we can now inclined towards our Creator and our true purpose in life, these three things, whoever finds them in their heart, they will find out what's in the sweetness of human what does that mean the sweetness of human What that means is that you will find ultimate peace and contentment in your life, building our relationship with Allah and every sajida of yours. Every time you do a vicar of Allah, your mouth will, will jump in ecstasy and joy because you are saying the name of your Lord and your Creator. Your whole perspective will change. I mean, look at bill out of your loved one. What are the habits of a man? He found the

00:06:54--> 00:07:02

sweetness of a man. That's why when you're beating him, you keep beating him again and again. You haven't heard of is beating them and beating them. But every time he hits them, what does he say?

00:07:03--> 00:07:46

100 101 a lot one a lot. Because he's found the sweetness of human kind of like a person who has diabetes. He knows it's going to kill him. But every time he drinks tea, what does he say? Sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar Mita Rita. Right. I have to have some dessert. I have to have some dessert. What am I supposed to say? In Delafield botany Hello Holla Holla there indeed in the stomach there is an emptiness that can only be filled by something sweet. I can eat biryani all day but until I don't have my dessert, kind of put on my foot My food is not complete. One of our little quick rant I do not wrap quick tangent. I don't do these usually during the Ramadan talks, but just quickly, when

00:07:46--> 00:08:00

mother saw there was one caretaker of ours. He was a very pious person, Rahim Allah He passed away No, very pious person always doing the kind of a law and reading put on. He's doing a lot of sugar in his tea. 10 spoons of sugar per cup.

00:08:02--> 00:08:32

10 spoons of sugar per cup. Check out the other Chi Chai calm, right? Less tea. more sugar. In certain parts of India when you order tea. They ask you how much sugar do you want? So in India, they say cut out too much. Color too much means what? Standing spoon when I heard this the first time when I wasn't headed about someone said crotch how much that I want. He asked him how much sugar do you want? He's a standing spoon. So my mind was like, what does that mean? Standing spoon. So I asked like I said what does that mean? He said he puts so much sugar in there that the spoon stands on its own.

00:08:34--> 00:09:02

This is a real story. By the way. It's happened to me I was there. And I saw this and I was like, ah, diabetes must be gonna rise in our country. And the truth is it is that arise in our country. So shut up the height. He became sick, his diabetes and he got his health got very bad and they had to amputate a toe of his saltmarsh. I came to visit him. He was in the middle of sorts. So they came for the FDA to check up on how he was doing. So one of our machinists he came in he asked, he said that, Hey, how are you doing?

00:09:03--> 00:09:14

He said, you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to give me a very long life. So the shift so that's a very interesting thing for you to say you just lost your toe and you're so confident you're gonna have a long life. He said listen,

00:09:15--> 00:09:24

after 55 years of drinking three cups a day 10 spoons of sugar per cup after 55 years Allah only took one toe I have nine left.

00:09:26--> 00:09:36

But then you know as you guys know, once one's gone then very soon after that Rahim Allah He passed away my lush our His infinite mercy upon his grave and all the motorhoming that have left us when you

00:09:37--> 00:09:49

when a personal love something no matter how much harm or good It brings to them, they become blind as I say an RV football cache a yummy. Well, you'll see that when you love something you become young you become

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

blind, you can't see anymore when you sit and you don't want to talk about you don't want to hear about it anymore, either. Because you're obsessed with something like that young college student who study for two years and tell them

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

His parents I found love at MSA and his parents are like you didn't find love and MSA that's my daughter that you're you're wasting, go back into your classes and focus on your school. You're not you didn't even send you to school to find love at the MSA. But then that person in June they're lost. Oh my parents, but this is the one person and then all of a sudden they become very well versed with honey, don't you know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said marriages I think you shouldn't delay.

00:10:25--> 00:10:29

Don't you know Don't you know and all of a sudden, all these hobbies, as if you're speaking to

00:10:30--> 00:11:05

Razi himself all the assignee, then does he until the eighth of all they do is they come, when a person loves something there last learn to love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In a similar way, we look at the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam some of the things they did for the Prophet sallallahu It was such an amazing loss for words. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam delivered his last sermon of his life, the last sermon of his entire life he delivered in Madina munawwara after the hearse, Allah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addressed the companions. And he said, he praised the Sahaba who are martyred in the Battle

00:11:05--> 00:11:38

of God. Then he praised the Maha Joon for their sacrifice for the deen, he turned to the onslaught and said, You guys loved me and gave me a home he prays them to. And then after that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Today I have paid every person's debt back. There's only one person whose debt I cannot pay back. And the Prophet pointed at him and who was it? Have a look at the different the other one, he had his head lower down and he was crying as the Prophet said, I couldn't pay you back. Because he was in love with the Prophet. He gave everything, everything. The Prophet said he had his head down, he was crying. And he kept saying, well, hell no O'Malley

00:11:38--> 00:12:16

Illallah COVID Rasulullah a messenger of Allah you keep talking about repaying. Allah gave me this life. Allah gave me this wealth to love you. Where's that heart of Abu Bakar Gohan in this congregation? Where is that heart gone that just wants to just wants to live for the sake of alone but also sent along while it was sent him. The concern of that heart is how can I safeguard the honor of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam How can I live that honor and it's not just love because love is cheap. People just say it I love what value does talk have these days it doesn't have any value. Allah subhanho wa Taala says makanan hace Vanessa yusaku Amanda hola afternoon.

00:12:17--> 00:12:38

Totally him for a lemon Allahu alayhi wa salatu wa Ala Moana Caribbean Talk is cheap. People say like the law but they're not willing to stand for La ilaha illAllah they're not willing to prove their La ilaha illa Allah And regarding that the poet says 1000 ilaha 1000 Ilaha will en todo para Babu in Ephesus Amani ijebu

00:12:40--> 00:12:48

you disobey Allah and then you claim you love him. What an amazing, interesting thing. I've never heard of this before, that you say Locanda book Assad's

00:12:49--> 00:13:27

if you truly loved a lot you would obey Allah subhanaw taala in the Mohave Valley man, your Hebrew material, because the lover will always be obedient to the beloved. And that's where our true Eman is. It's not just in loving, loving is really important, believing in the process that alone is step number two, loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but that leads to three four and five three obeying the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said kulu matija una Janata, Illa element. Every person from my own mind will enter into Jenna, every one of you will enter into agenda Illa

00:13:28--> 00:14:05

Abba except for the work except for the one who rejects thought who are met by Aristotle or messenger of Allah Who is this person that rejects the promise of a lot he was said and said, Man, I thought I needed nothing to agenda. woman I saw a need for whoever is obedient to me will surely enter an agenda. And whoever this obeys me has rejected. He is the one who will not get agenda, the one who loses out when it comes to obedience to the prophets of Allah Muhammad. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Man I thought I needed Allah whoever is obedient to me is obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala. A person once came to us a hobby and said, I have x, y and z. It was a

00:14:05--> 00:14:36

lady she came to us with the Aloha and if I'm correct, or even a majority of the Aloha and one of the two and said give me the answer for X, Y and Z issue. I heard that you curse women for doing X, Y and Z action show me from the Quran. I read the Quran and I didn't find the ayah in there. So even our boss of the Allah one he said to this lady, that had you read the Quran the way I read the Quran, you would have found that Allah subhana wa Taala prohibited women from doing x y&z action. She said where and he read the ayah about karate and a lot Allah Allah, Allah Karim

00:14:38--> 00:15:00

takamura soon fukuzawa manakamana Santo, whatever your messenger tells you to do, do it. Whatever he tells you to stay away from stay away from it. What that tells you is that not only do you read the Quran for your answer, you need to read also what the son of the Prophet said allamani he was sent him. Just yesterday one young person came to me and asked me this question that shift I want an answer for

00:15:00--> 00:15:18

X, Y and Z thing and you must prove it to the Quran. I didn't find the eye on the Quran. That young person was very sincere and had a very beautiful question. But at the end of that before I even answer the question I said to her, before I answer your question, I'm going to I'm going to address Another problem that I saw in your question. And that problem is this disease that I will only listen if it's in the

00:15:19--> 00:15:59

forum. If it's not in the Quran, I won't listen to it. Who in the Muslim world claimed that the entire Deen every filthy food or an arson every principle and lower issue, the minute issues are in the Quran? If we claim that the Quran wouldn't be one volume, we wouldn't be able to read it in 20 tarawih prayer, how long would it take to read the Quran? It would take years, volumes and volumes Have you not seen Hadith books with a few books and fifth books that are 20 3040 volumes? The Quran is a book of principle. The Quran does not give you the minor details of your Quran tells you praise Allah, it doesn't tell you where to tie your hands where to say Allahu Akbar how to bow down the

00:15:59--> 00:16:36

Quran tells you gives a cop does it tell you anything about 2.5%? Yes or no? The Quran says that you perform hajj, is there any mention of of Mina in the Quran? Yes or no? Is there any mention of kissing this and doing that and going here and throwing this many stones and this angle from here at this time from this time to that time in this state? All of those things are not on the put on? This is a problem that we have a young person came to me and said to me, show me the hokum of hijab in the Quran. I said to her, the scholars have deduced the ruling of his job, the lady, the women covering the hair that has been deduced from some verses of the Quran indirectly. If you're asking

00:16:36--> 00:16:45

me for a direct verse of the Quran, with the hook on the page if I don't have it, but that doesn't mean that it's not fun. Just because it's not in the Quran does not mean what

00:16:46--> 00:17:27

it doesn't mean it's not fun. Because why the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are very clear and present in abundance on this issue, and they are authentic, they are serene and clear and authentic on the issue and for the Muslim ummah. We understand that our religion beyond the Quran also comes to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the practice of the Sahaba and this is exactly why we call ourselves the Sunnah. Well, Gemma Allison M is the people of the sinner. Well Gemma means the people of the group of the companions. Another person came to me and he said to me, how many tarawih is Sunnah? So I told them there's a difference of opinion. A large

00:17:27--> 00:17:46

group of scholars say it's 20 Nakata. We as the practice has always been in history and Mocambo karma Madina, munawwara and foot and another group of scholars they say it's a ricotta way at the end of the day it's so not the more you pray the better it is for you. You know, try to the more you do it, the better it is. He said to me Show me that he had either 20 DACA What did he say?

00:17:47--> 00:18:13

Show me so he saw that hobby convert crisp. So here, how do you have 20 DACA. So I said to this brother, okay, I got you. You want it? Okay. The Hadid isn't a mathematic mathematical Huntelaar linear it's the Hadeeth that honorable hombre de la one established 20 Dakar turabian Madina, munawwara authentic narration sobre De La Hoya established 20 Dr. Ravi, behind one Imam in one congregation. This is the way we pray right now. It was established by who?

00:18:15--> 00:18:51

So he says to me, and this is what took the full out of my body what he said next. He said don't quote on my show me messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said don't quote who don't quote all matter to me. Show me the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And I said to him, Allahu Akbar. There was a time when the Romans and Persians heard the same man's name, and their feet was shake. There was a time where shavon wouldn't dare walk on that pathway that Oliver walked on. There was a time where he would say something to the Prophet of Allah, and it would come as revelation. And today our young Muslim says, Don't bring all my god alone in front of me. What

00:18:51--> 00:19:33

happened to the Ummah? Did we lose our priorities? Do we really misplace our values? Loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is loving his companions, loving his tradition, loving His revelation. And ultimately, the true manifestation of obedience is in return. It's an Akita in obedience and following, and ultimately making the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, your leader, making him your role model. We pray that Allah subhana wa that allows us to use this from Yvonne, to realign our loyalty with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, understanding what role he plays in our life and what duties we have towards him. And this all starts with

00:19:33--> 00:19:44

believing in Him, loving him, learning about him and ultimately bringing his son into our lives. May Allah subhana wa tada accept and grant they'll feel what's that Allah hotel and a serum hummus ceremony.
