the story of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And the Companions who stood by his side is such an amazing, beautiful heart touching story.
Because it shows us how a small group of people
who are committed to a cause can bring
something that started from a cave
to now a religion that is growing at such a fast rate and has reached the corners of the world.
The success that we see of Islam today that we are Muslims, sitting here in this gathering, that we've traveled from different parts of this nation to spend some days reflecting over our deen and connecting with the legacy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam this whole story that where we are now and where it started, it's humbling. It's touching.
Behind every great success. There's someone's sacrifice. You don't just wake up in the morning to success. Someone put hard blood someone put their sweat into something. Someone put their dreams on hold, someone put their own luxuries on hold.
And if we try to go back to the beginning of this story,
we see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returning from Hatha Hara shaking and trembling,
being comforted by his wife Khadija, the Allahu anha.
And he shares with her that he was just blessed with the honor of Naboo prophethood.
So Khadija, the Allahu anha joins his calls in his call, and she says I'm with you. And it's two people sitting together one day, he's telling her the story, and she's accepting it.
And then people tag along and this caravan grows and it grows and grows and people from different walks of life and the battles that occurred and the struggles and so many challenges.
And when you study that biography and that story of the suit, Allah said, Allahu Allah, he was sitting not only do you see a beautiful historical narrative that serves as a blueprint for success and growth as communities,
but it also gives us an insight into what kind of person Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was.
I had the opportunity to teach Sita a few different times. Some years back, she called the Nasr had requested that I teach the Sierra again, specifically for the kalam podcast so it can become a public resource. So we covered the whole prophetic biography and 23 sessions.
And one thing that became very clear to me
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam had amazing traits, but there was one characteristic of his that really stood out to me.
And that was that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a very, very loyal person.
He didn't forget people.
He wasn't someone that you would do something nice to him and move on. And he would forget you that's not Huda sort of loss that allowed him was, he would remember them.
He remembered the love and comfort of Khadija the Allahu anha. For as long as he lived. He couldn't forget her. And when he would speak of her, there would be such joy and happiness in that speech of his that I showed her the Allahu Ana, she would feel a mild form of jealousy and she would say that she's gone and we're here Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say that sadita was Khadija.
The province that Allahu Allah was sitting would not forget those who played that role in his life. The Battle of ohana occurs in the third year after migration
30 year after migration for the following seven years. It was close to being a weekly practice of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he would go from messenger nebulae in Madina Munawwara to or hug and pay his regards to those that were buried there.
Last Trip Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made in his life outside of his home and his Masjid was where it was to the graveyard of bhakti.
A boy Heba, the hadith of an abuse of Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says, One night, but as soon Allah said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam woke up and he went to the graveyard of bhakti and I followed him. And the province of Allahu Allah was set him sat at the Greaves and he cried for all the companions that were with him on this journey of Islam,
who stood by his side through thick and thin and who didn't cower away.
And then when he left the graveyard, maybe sort of long it was set him said that a servant of Allah was given a choice between the world and the hereafter and he has chosen the Hereafter. And therefore the next morning may be sort of long while he was sort of ill his illness started, which lasted until he departed this dunya
the last public sermon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam delivered in his life it was after Lord salah, just one or two days before he passed away.
The Sahaba were praying for her behind Abu Bakr so definitely Allah one. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrived in the masjid and Abu Bakr saw him. He had been leading prayer for a few days now and the prophets of Allah who it was sitting, did not come to the masjid. So when he saw on the resort, Allahu Allah, he was sitting there he was leading he stepped back.
Let me sit Allahu alayhi wa sallam said stay in your place. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then came to the front of the congregation. He sat down, and he led the remainder of that prayer. The prophets of Allah while he was sending only led half of that salah, and even that he led sitting down.
After the prayer was over the prophets of Allah who it was said and delivered his last public sermon.
And in that sermon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
May Allah's mercy be upon the MaHA June 1, he made dua for those that were martyred and he remembered them again. Then he turned to the MaHA Jiun and said to them that you guys migrated with me. May Allah elevate you and rewarding you for all your sacrifice for standing by me and trusting me when we were few. Then he turned to the unsought of the residents of Medina and said to them that you hosted us you gave us family, you gave us your home, you opened up the doors for us. We will never forget you.
And then maybe said Allahu alayhi wa sallam turned to the congregation and said, If there is anyone here that I owe anything to come forward so we can settle our affair.
The Sahaba sat silently without a word.
And then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said today I have paid back the debt of every person.
But there is one person whose debt I have not paid back and I will not be able to pay it back either. And he then turned towards a bucket of Cydia kind of the Allah one
season Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allah one had his head lowered down and he was crying.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
Zawadzki iannetta hoo ha Milani Illa Dar Al Hijrah and Fatah, Allah Yamano he gave me his daughter,
my beloved wife, Aisha was able Buckers gift
Hamadani Isla Dar Al Hijrah he accompanied me on the journey of migration life risking journey, but he stood by my side didn't walk away.
I'm *a Ali Amala who when I met Abu Bakr, he was a wealthy man now he's broke. He spent all of his money on me to
Imam sutra Rahmatullah Allah and the study hall philosopher afternoon reading this scenario. It's another way in which he says that in that moment, I've overcome citygo The Allah one had his head bowed down and he was crying. And he kept repeating one statement he said, Well, hell no family law kya rasool Allah,
or messenger of Allah, you keep saying that I gave you wealth, I gave you wealth. Why else did Allah give me life and wealth if it wasn't to serve you a messenger of Allah.
You owe me nothing. It was an honor to be your companion. It was an honor to stand by your side and put my life at risk as yours was at least. It was an honor to be a part of your joy in life by by you marrying my daughter.
This man's loyalty and His sacrifice was never forgotten by the sort of loss and aloneness.
And I know that being a Muslim every day there is some struggle involved.
Some days you think wonder, will I wake up and there won't be a struggle? Half of the days you don't even know why you're frustrated. You don't know what's going on. Who do I call? Get SimonK 100 Kosik a heck
of a dunya material see walk on.
Right? The poet he says Who do I turn to? Who do I ask? kissin manga kaha Jaya Sega Hey,
there's no one left.
There's only one person left Yola, and that's us. I'm turning to you and trying to figure that
South the sacrifice of being a Muslim in the world that you live in the sacrifice of raising children on Islam and the world that we live in. The sacrifice of building Islamic institutions where this is happening right now is no small feat. This is great.
And even though we haven't met Rasul Allah yet I need you to know.
And this is very important
that you have to know the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was extremely loyal to those that cared and loved him.
He remembered them every time.
And this hard work to sacrifice that you and I are going through and I speak to you first and foremost.
It will not go unrewarded.
So don't be afraid of taking on the challenge in life. Don't be afraid of losing. And don't treat those tears that come up at the time of frustration as
a call of defeat.
Rather, you're just on that journey and you're walking away on a path that no one said was going to be easy in your reward is with Allah subhanahu McDonogh
sacrifice will be necessary.
Today, the history of Islam in America is being written, maybe 100 years from now someone will be born from our progeny who will write a book on the history of Islam in America, and the challenges Muslims took on to build institutions and communities.
We aren't the first to be here. Books like this have already been written. But this is the Ongoing History. And sometimes I wonder that if I read that book,
I wonder what they would write about us that these are people who are too busy living their luxuries that no one bothered to sacrifice for this Dean, or will they say that these were people who had dreams like everyone else, but they chose the way of the sahaba. They put their Bentley's in their Mercedes in their BMWs in their three car garages and their 5000 square foot homes and their trampolines and their pools and all the vacations that they had planned on hold.
Because they understood that their patients in this world
would in return offer opportunity to other human beings and that carried much more value.
So success comes with sacrifice my friends.
Today, we remind you of that as we remind ourselves
that when you're giving in the path of Allah don't just give until you're comfortable growth happens when you're uncomfortable. Feel a pinch, let shaytaan begin to tell you that are you sure you want to do this? That's when you know you're doing it right? That you're getting under shaytaan skin?
Are you sure you want to go to Akena? Like you can watch the live stream you know that right?
And you say no, I'm gonna go. This is the right thing.
May Allah subhanahu wa taala give all of us that don't feel to be willing to take on those challenges in life.
And may He allow this reality to crystallize in our hearts? That at the end of all of these sacrifices lies the pleasure of Allah.
And maybe on the Day of Judgment, a hug from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. What's that? Along with? That I said that Mohammed? said Mr. Aiken, Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
