Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen illa Allah Allah Nene Amina staring on suddenly on Salima 30 mil ambia you will Emanuel mousseline Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Marine

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

Allah Melissa Allah Allah Masha Allah.

00:00:27--> 00:00:53

Allah will either she settler rbse wala to acid water me Bill hirooki canister him. We thank Allah Boulez that you will gll for having gathered us here online today. And we ask Allah subhana wa tada to surround us with the melodica. And to cause his mercy and His Sakina to descend upon us, and to raise us with the MBR alayhi wa Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean,

00:00:54--> 00:01:47

indeed, these are trying times we have gathered here today, because Allah subhanahu attallah decreed that we would gather online, and really and truly we can look at this from two perspectives. We can say that, you know, we didn't get to gather in person, what a shame, or what a pity, but in reality, we need to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala that he granted us the opportunity to gather online, at least that platform is open, and hamdulillah we thank Allah subhana wa Tada. Today inshallah, I'd like to discuss with you a few moments that was so memorable from the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And indeed, his entire life was memorable. And this is why we have the companions

00:01:47--> 00:02:41

who have basically recorded the whole of his life or most of his life. People were so interested in who he was, that they spoke about him, they discussed him, they recorded him in history, his words, his actions, what he did what he didn't do, but today insha, Allah will look at it from a more human perspective. You see, when we discuss sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then usually we find ourselves talking about how he was this ideal human being how he was this perfect human being. And yes, he was, but we tend to forget that he was a human being. So in that manner, Allah subhana wa tada made him relatable to us. So that is why he sent a human being so that we can relate to him and we can

00:02:41--> 00:03:07

understand how he went about his life, and then inculcate that into our lives. Let us make it clear Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the best of human beings and there is no human being that will walk an earth that is better than him. But he was Mashallah. In Nana Anna Basha Miss lucam say I am a human being like you, but what is the difference yellow suit Alon.

00:03:08--> 00:03:33

You have Ilya and Nana Isla hukum Illa Wahid, I am revealed to that your is one load one grub. So that was the difference he received revelation. We do not receive revelation we are not able to communicate with Allah subhanho wa Taala in that manner, may Allah subhanahu wa tada grant us the ability to understand

00:03:34--> 00:04:02

a lot more cool is that he will gela he made Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a father in this world. And we find many of us are fathers as well. So we need to look at how he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dealt with his children and how he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dealt with a death of his child. So when Ibrahim was passing on,

00:04:03--> 00:04:59

undocumented now for the Allahu anhu says that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took my hand and he took me to a palm tree under which Ibrahim was and there he found his son was in the pangs of death. And he lifted him up, put him into his lap, and he says yeah, Ibrahim, man licola kameena la ha ha. Oh, Ibrahim, we do not hold back from the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala anything that is decreed for you. And then he began to cry. But Abdul Rahman ignore or for the Allahu anhu he looks at sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says Sal, Allahu Allah. They attempt ki. May Allah's blessings be upon you. Are you crying? out? I'm 10 honey buka Did you not stop the

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

people

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

crying. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responds with a profound response. And he says, Man, I hate one who I did not prevent from it, when I can hate to unsalted any Martini veggie line, but I prevented people from doing to foolish and criminal voices sauteing, in the near matin. When della when a voice that people shout out, when they are extremely happy, they reach a point where they are screaming, and they don't even know what they are doing was so thin, in the Bella enormous eba and a voice that people make when they are at a mercy but they are at a calamity. And what is that voice? Hum she will do in the scratching of faces worship p Do you believe and the tearing of

00:05:56--> 00:06:49

close? And they would go about and they would shout well and let you share your pan and the shouting to the extent that the devil shots that is this allowed in Islam. And this is what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling Abdullah Malik mouth and the Hadith continues. It says what are the here and this that you see? Oh, man, it is a mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala Malaya Han Lohan, the one who does not have mercy will not have had mercy had upon him. So he was telling Abdullah married now for the Allahu anhu that this is normal. This is the right man, this is okay. But what is wrong is for a person to shout out and to tear their clothes. My dear brothers and

00:06:49--> 00:07:25

sisters in Islam. We need to stop here for a moment and think we are sitting in a situation where people are dying like flies around us. Literally people are dying like flies, it is possible that someone close to us will die. It is possible that someone close to us will leave this world. But the question is how will we respond? How will we react will react in the way that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam did? Or will we begin to shocked and question the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:26--> 00:08:17

we need to ask ourselves this question because the reality is that very soon we may find someone close to us May Allah Subhana Allah protect us, who passes on from this disease and it may be very difficult for us to bear but as muslimeen we understand that we do not control the situation. And this is why Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam held his son looked at him and addressed him man am licola camino Allah He shall we do not hold anything back from the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala for you. We do not hold anything back from the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala for you. So he knew sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that even though he was the best of mankind, he could not hold anything

00:08:17--> 00:09:09

back from the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala for his own son, but he cried, he was a human being It is normal for you to cry, it is normal for you to become sad. But remember, when you cannot attend the funeral when you cannot go and bury your own? then understand that Allah Subhana Allah Allah has a greater plan and submit to the decree of Romulus that he will join on. And this is why at the end of the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that Marilynne, indeed the ideas were told, and the hearts become sad, when a Kudu myoskeletal Rob and we do not say that which displeases our maker, why, because we understand that ultimately, it is he whom we came from, and it

00:09:09--> 00:09:53

is he whom we are returning to. So why should we then displease that maker that this human being that has passed on has returned to and we are returning to as well, you know, in the Arabic language, there is a saying, and they say, well, henault Allah, that he has gone, and we are following him. And this is what you say to the people who you go to give as you go to give your condolences. You tell them that, you know, he's gone. But remember that we are all following him. So understand that if your son has passed on, if your daughter has passed on your brother, your mother, your uncle, your aunt, there is an example in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for you. He

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

lost a son. He lost in fact, all of his children, but how did he deal with this situation and this is

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

We've got to ask ourselves Salalah alayhi wa sallam. So, he says, well, Anna kulu mosquito Rob and we do not say that which displeases our maker. Make sure that you only say that which pleases your maker in every aspect of your life, and submit to Him completely and totally say, I surrender to you or Allah. And that is why I have uttered the Shahada at that point, is the test of your faith, at that point, is the test of whether you really meant to Allah ilaha illallah wa shadow, Mohammed Abdul WA, Sulu. So that is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a father who had lost his, his child, as a husband was en su de la sallallahu alayhi wasallam as a husband as a spouse. I think one

00:10:57--> 00:11:54

of the most are some of the most profound moments that can explain to us Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was as a husband is in the intimate moments that happened between him and rhodiola ashwagandha rhodiola when he says that I was with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one night. And when it was dark, I began to look around with my hand touch around feel around with my hand, I did not feel the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So she says all thoughts, you know, perhaps, and just assuming all sorts of thoughts started crossing her mind. And then she says, I felt his foot. And then he was sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his such de and he was saying soo Han caloptima

00:11:54--> 00:12:41

bene will be handing Glory be to You, Allah and with your praises. And then she says immediately, I understood that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in one Valley, and I was in the other Valley, meaning that my thoughts were some way and he was with a loss of kind of mortality at this juncture, at this point, when she touched his foot, did he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stand up and say, Hey, what did you think I was doing? What did you think I was up to? How dare you doubt me? How dare you think that off me? You know, how dare you think I was engaged in something else? No, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remained silent. And he continued, he finished his Salah, he went back to bed and

00:12:41--> 00:13:35

he remained silent. He did not even address this issue. And in another instance, are a Chateau de la Miranda says that I was looking for him once again. And I then saw him leaving the door and, and going out of the door. So I got up and I followed him. And as he moved, he went to Albuquerque, he went to the graveyard. And he may do art for a long, long, long time. And after this, he began to work back so I began to rush back as well. And then he can she quickened his play. He Quicken he split his pace. So she quickened her pace as well. And then she says that he began to run so I ran as well, until I came home and I entered took off my EMR and I went on to the bedroom, and I acted

00:13:35--> 00:14:29

like I was asleep. And then sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he comes into the door, and he says, Yeah, Isha. Oh, Aisha, Maddie, Allah ke ha Shia labia? Why is it that I see you so breathless? So she remains silent. And then he says, Yeah, Russia, if you do not inform me, then the one who knows everything will inform me. So I shall be a lover. And he says, that I then told him that, you know, this is what happened. I saw you leaving the home, and I followed you. And this is how the whole situation went down. So when she explained to him, him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he being the messenger, the best of creation, the leader, the person who everybody looked up to. He said, you

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

know, let me explain to you what happened. gibreel came to me, and he didn't want to enter the door because perhaps you would have been in a position that he would not have wanted to find you in. So I went out of the home in order to talk to him because I did not want to disturb you. I did not want you to wake up and find nobody next to you and become a bit scared or lonely. So I went out to talk to jabril outside

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

So he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not begin to shout at her fight with her. How dare you doubt me? How dare you think that I'm going to any one of my other wives, although some of Assyrian say that this is not the reason that I have heard the alarm on her head. Some people that explain the Hadith say that she had her reasons to wonder where was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam going? Because imagine your husband wakes up at night comes out of the door, and he is leaving sometimes even if you don't doubt him, in his integrity, perhaps you wonder you are curious, what is he doing? What's going on? And some women genuinely trust their husbands so much that they would

00:15:43--> 00:16:30

never doubt them. But they become curious. It's normal. But let me ask myself and yourselves today. If we were to wake up in the middle of the night and find ourselves or our spouses on the phone, typing away, laughing, chatting, joking. What is the first book that comes to our minds? Do we think good of them? Do we think perhaps they are, you know, just talking to a friend, they couldn't sleep they got onto the internet, and they are chatting with someone who is close to them from amongst the normal and usual friends? Or do we begin to think and assume the worst? Remember, you've got to think the best of your fellow brethren and those who are closest to you are the ones who are most

00:16:30--> 00:17:19

deserving of this. So you think good of them. And if you really want to, you can ask that you know what was going on what happened? And the response of the spouse should also be decent and genuine. explain the situation like how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did? He didn't begin to shout, he didn't begin to question and say, and shout the person out hate how do you how dare do you think that about me? No, but he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Calm down, defuse the situation completely and all together. So we need to become like this. And we need to have this type of understanding between the two parties never think that I am superior to this being I am better than the my spouse. He

00:17:19--> 00:17:51

understood sallallahu alayhi wasallam that there were no winners and losers in the situation. If I issue Javier Lahontan last argument, then he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew that it was also his loss. And if she had won the argument, then she understood that it was also her loss. So they understood each other, they treated each other well. And we need to do the same. We need to look at our pseudo last Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and the manner in which he dealt with his spouse and his wives

00:17:52--> 00:18:40

are pseudo Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a joke, as a person who was humorous as a person who enjoyed laughter as well. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to get along with this Bedouin man, known as Zen. He repin heroin. And then he had been heroin, or the Allahu anhu. He used to come from the desert, and he would give the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam some gifts, and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would reciprocate, he would give him some gifts back as well. So one day when they live in Harlem, or be a lover and who came to the messenger, the house of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he didn't find the messenger there. So he left. And when the

00:18:40--> 00:19:29

messenger came back, he then found when the messenger came back, he then found out that Zaha was here and he didn't find you. So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he goes to look for the ribbon holla and he finds him in the marketplace selling some of his merchandise. And he creeps up to him, holds him and hugs him from behind and begins to announce to the marketplace. I've done little by little they there is a servant for sale. There is a seven for sale. And the people find this funny, they find it humorous, but then it is worried is wondering who's behind me here. And he turns around to look who it is and he sees Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he snuggles

00:19:29--> 00:20:00

up into the shoulders of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it says, even Taiji dooney Cassie, Daniela sudama, then you will find me to be a very valueless slave, a person who has no value, you won't get anything out of me. And the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says what a killing occur in the law. He loves to be cursing and tearing the law he Holly but you are not valueless was Allah subhana wa Tada. You are

00:20:00--> 00:20:47

Very valuable with Robert is 31 Gln. And this is how the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dealt with the companions of the Allahu anhu. Jimmy and look at how he comes home. After a long day, he's tired. He wants to deal. You know, probably go back and relax, take it easy. And he doesn't want to deal with anything after that. And they tell him that a man from the desert has come to see you. He came to see you. And he didn't find you. What does the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do? Does he just leave it and say, I'll deal with this later? I'm tired. I can't do this right now. No, he was the best of creation. So what did he do? He went out looking for this man. Let me find him

00:20:47--> 00:21:35

before he returns to the desert. And when he finds him that he is standing in the marketplace. He is sweating, drenched in sweat. Imagine the heat of Medina standing in it and selling a product or pseudo masala. Why don't you send them goes and hugs him from behind. And then jokes with him and loves with him. And when he says that I'm worth nothing. I'm useless. You know, this was a man that people look down upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam raised his value and told him No, you are not valueless with Allah subhana wa Tada, you are very high in the status of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This was the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and when it allowed the loved one who was

00:21:35--> 00:21:51

once hungry, he came and I know there is some, you know, sort of weakness in the narration that mentions this, but it shows us the human side of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he wrote the Alomar and who he is hungry.

00:21:52--> 00:22:37

And he comes to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he finds that there is a plate of dates. So he begins to eat from the dates and he throws them, puts them by the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And then he eats and he puts them by the messenger he eats and he puts them he puts the seeds by the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And when he's done, he says, Yasuda Allah, you've eaten all of the dates. What's happening? Look at all of these seeds that are gathered there. And the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and more strange than that, Holly, I find a person who eats the date and the seed as well. Meaning Where are your seeds? You've eaten the dates,

00:22:37--> 00:23:18

but we are your seeds. Yes, I've eaten, but here are mine. So you are eating the seed as well. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam laughed with his companions. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was humorous. How many times do we enter into the home we're tired. We, you know, we we've dealt with so much in the day. And we just don't want to say a word. And you find the kids come in and they begin to hug you. They want to play with you. They want to enjoy. They want to have a good time. They haven't seen you all day. And all of a sudden you find yourself saying Hey, no, I can't deal with this right now. That wasn't the Heidi and that wasn't the way of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa

00:23:18--> 00:24:01

sallam, he played with his grandchildren, and has an animal saying he enjoyed good times with them as well. And he went down and treated them like children that they were he behaved like a child with the children so that they would relate to him. And 09 seminars 11 go down to the level of the people. So when you're dealing with a child deal with the child in the manner that the child wants you to deal with him. And when you're dealing with a older people, teens, then deal with them in the manner that they want you to deal with him, laugh and joke with them, have fun with them. So we need to understand that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as much as he was a leader, as much as

00:24:01--> 00:24:12

he was a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the best of creation, the highest of prophets. He also was a human being in so many different aspects.

00:24:13--> 00:24:59

Him and His oma messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his oma, that is us. How will he deal with us? You know, we haven't gotten to meet Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam we didn't get to smile at him. We didn't get to spend time with him. We didn't get to eat with him. We didn't get to look at him in the same manner that the companions did, has said ignore Toby Toby Allah and who would say what I said will mean Callum ColourPop whiny that better than you or more beautiful than you my eye hasn't seen what have bloomin Callum tele denisa and better than you know a woman has given birth to mobile

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

mean clearly I didn't, you were created completely free of all defects can occur Julio tekamah Tisha, you are created as though you wanted to as though you were created in the manner that you wanted to be created. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we didn't get to spend time with him. We didn't get to see him. We didn't get to enjoy that time with him. But on the day of piano, insha Allah, if we die as muslimeen we will be with Rasulullah Buddha, Muhammad, Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and on that day, even the sinners will be part of the oma Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even those who drink those who commit Zina. Those who have done the Kaaba is the

00:25:51--> 00:26:41

highest of sins, the biggest of sins, and they feel that they cannot attain the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. They've too far down the path. They will be part of the owner of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is why he says Shiva it my Shiva and my intercession, Liang Lim, cabeza elimin Amati is for the people who have committed grave sins from my alma. Those are the people whom Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shafa will be for. So he will come on that day. And the people will all be asked the NBR Allahu wa Salatu was Salam from the greatest of prophets from Adam to Moosa to Ibrahim, Teresa, all of these NBS that were great prophets of Allah subhanho

00:26:41--> 00:27:26

wa Taala. The people who will go to them, please help us make shefa and for us for us, and they will say that, you know, we've got our own things that we've got to worry about ourselves today. NFC NFC, it is only myself It is only myself I am worried for, and then they will go to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is us with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our first interactions with him on the day of piano, they will go to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam or shall I say we will go to the pseudo Lhasa Allahu alayhi wa sallam with the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala and ask him and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will make a search there. And he

00:27:26--> 00:27:34

will ask Allah subhanho wa Taala praise him with the various praises until Allah subhanho wa Taala says, sell,

00:27:35--> 00:28:26

wish to share that ask and you will be given and seek intercession and the intercession is yours, the intercession is yours. And then he will begin to make shefa for those who are from amongst the people of the fire from those who have committed grave sins from those who went away and against his path that he came with. Look at the mercy and the mouth Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, look at how he deals with those who did not even adhere to his commands, to his obligations to those to the guidance that he had come up with, because he was meant to lead I mean, he was the man for the world. He was sent as a mercy to mankind. Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, I think I've spoken on

00:28:26--> 00:29:14

various aspects of the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the manner in which he was a human being just like me and you, except that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a direct link with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah in which he received revelation, in which he received the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala the prohibitions of Allah subhana wa Tada. But he was a human being, let us not forget this aspect. And let us not forget that there are so many moments in his life that are relatable to us, that we can go back to and say, How did he sallallahu alayhi wasallam do this. How did he sallallahu alayhi wasallam do that. Anytime you come across a situation where you having

00:29:14--> 00:29:51

problems with your spouse, you having problems with any other human being your friends around you, your parents did go back to the sila of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam find out how he was as a spouse, as a husband, how he was as a father, as a parent, how he was as a companion to those around him and you will find the best of examples in him. Remember, Allah subhanho wa Taala says la Khadija rasuluh min and fusi come a messenger came from amongst you.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

As he is another human, I need to hurry as soon as he can be me know for him. He was

00:30:00--> 00:30:15

Aziz with that which was close to you, he was close to you. How do you soon it can be meaning he wanted you to be believers in Allah subhanho wa Taala because he wanted you to be companions of his on the day of piano.

00:30:16--> 00:30:42

As he is on it, he managed to hurry you soon. alaikum bill me, Nina, uno him. He was very lenient and very merciful. We need to learn from the CEO of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we asked him to benefit us all and to grant us the ability to understand His guidance and to practice upon it. I mean, what sort of law who will sell them or Baraka and then abena Mohammed Ali, he was married.
