For us to adhere to the Sunnah of the Prophet awesome first and foremost, we need to value for the profits on
every command came from the prophets I send them it is mercy for us, it is better for us.
Allah says, one out of sudden NACA, it will now mean and we did not send you except as mercy, mercy to who?
Not only to mankind, mankind is one island, only one world, but the law says I mean world's, even the world of the animals. The prophet SAW Selim was mercy to them.
Again, I really cannot
stress enough the importance of valuing the love of the property in order for us to follow him to follow his manage. People say in general, if you want to love something, or someone, there are four factors, first things that will lead you to love or dislike someone.
First thing is the beauty.
the beauty of the creation.
People by nature, they like the beautiful things by nature. And that's why many deviant people they deviate. They
subject themselves to fitna why because they follow
these beautiful images. Jamal,
of him that is one.
Although sometimes those people they look nice, they look beautiful, but they have the worst of attitude, the worst of a clap. Yet still people out there why they look nice. That's one factor. Then there is gentle and thorough
the beauty of the character.
Someone does not look good, but with dealings with words, Mashallah he or she is very nice. You love him or her why they speak nice. They say nice things, they do nice things. So you love him or your lover.
That's another factor. Then we have
doing a favor.
Someone did you a favor, you feel indebted to that person.
Even if you don't like him, essentially, even if you don't have any connection to him or her from another country. You were in need, he sent you money. You were traveling and you needed something and he helped you go there. He gave you a way. You love that. And then protection from something
harmful. That's another thing.
These are people say these are the four factors for loving, or hating someone or something. You look at all these four things. And you see that all combined. In the profits of
all these four things existed in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Jamal hunt, the beauty of the creation. The profits on salon was the perfect man. As a son of the law says Holika mobile and in Korea in
Canada, you were created free from any
imperfections. You were created. Perfect. As if you chose your creation. Imagine Allah azza wa jal is telling you how do you want to look like and you choose the color of your eyes the color of your skin? The way your face looks like? Hassan the power of the prophet SAW Selim says to the messenger sallallahu Sallam you were created as if you're the one who chose how you are paid. panelists who live in Korea in Canada, Canada for elemental Minka lamb Tara Wyoming Canada even yourself more handsome than you are I my eyes never saw.
The original Amiga lambda applying for hire Minka and anyone better than you was never paid you often.
This one, that's what has some of the answers. So can you imagine looking at the profit salon instead of just by looking and knowing that he is
the one to follow up the lines and sell out of the lavon, who used to be a rabbi, Jewish scholar. When the prophet SAW Selim came to Medina, he said, I looked at the face of the prophets, I send them and I knew this is not the face of the line, from the face of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was sure that he is
telling the truth, he is the Messenger of Allah. So that's the beauty of creation, then the beauty of the character. Allah says about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was in Mecca, Allah, Allah.
Never, ever the prophets are offended someone with words, he never cursed. The prophet SAW, Selim was never a man who curses, that miracle, whatever, and he would not abuse people verbally,
or physically, for that matter. So these are two factors, then we have the third factor. Again, you might love someone, not because he looks or she looks good, or he or she has a good character, but because they did something very important for you, they gave you access to something that they gave you money or whatever.
Imagine someone sacrificing his or her life for you.
They were ready to dine for you.
How much the profits of Elias lm struggle? And for what, for what it was easy. It was easy for the province allies to sit at home and get all the money in the world. And he was given the choice
a lot. So just give the prophets I send them the choice. Do you want to be a king, a messenger who's the king, or you want to be a servant, just a regular man who is the Messenger of Allah. So the prophet SAW Selim consulted with jabril Ali Salaam to realize Sarah indicated to him to choose the second one and he chose that one the prophet SAW Selim tried to go to a party. And he was subjected to the stoning and his feet were bleeding, why he went east and west for what it is to deliver this message to us. So now when we are living, we have the message of the prophets of oxygen.
So what is better than this, that the prophet SAW Selim gave you? The way to paradise?
The way to paradise, on the other hand, by following the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we are saved from what? From the worst things from Hellfire, from Hellfire, we cannot even stand the hot weather, we cannot stand the fire of this dunya How about the fire of the hereafter. So all these four things they never existed in someone except the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the beauty of creation, the beauty of character,
the doing of a great thing that is good, and the protection from great thing that is evil. All these things the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did for us. So for us to follow the main hand of the prophet SAW Selim, first and foremost, we need to value them. That's why the companions of the Prophet SAW said that whenever they heard that this is the Sunnah That's it, there is no question nowadays because of our whims and desires because of our weak demand. When we hear that this is the so now we tried to give an excuse maybe they have the youth is not authentic, maybe there is another method. Maybe there is a way for the companions. That's this is the sooner we will do it one time. Again,
there is a lot of examples but one example from every bit here and there. Sophia, Toby a lot on the and how the prophets alive send them she heard that her brother, the uncle of the Prophet arson, Hamza was killed.
And his body did not look good. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told them, don't let her look at her brother. It's not a good thing to see. After the battle over her so as the way her son came to her telling her mom come back, she said stay away. She pushed him and she kept going to see. He said, Mom, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tells you to come back immediately. She stopped and
that's how they adhered to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
Again, our issue nowadays is not about access to knowledge we have come to realize a lot of hobbies from the profits ourselves. A lot of books about the Sunnah of the prophet SAW some it's there.
It's available there is a lot of classes and hamdulillah then what is our problem again? We need to go back to see do we really love the prophet SAW so now we say we love him. Of course, we cannot be Muslim. So if we don't love the prophet SAW Selim, but where is the test?
There is an ayah in Surah Allah
it's called the eye of the test.
Well, I think a lot about the
importance of a boon Allah, say, if you love Allah for stability, follow me you will up with Kamala then Allah will love you. Do you love a lot? That's it this? Are you following the Prophet sallallahu wasallam if you are then you love Allah and Allah Allah.
Allah says in another if one is totally destitute, if you obey Him, the prophets are excellent. If you obey Him, you will be given guidance. Isn't that what we are looking for guidance, you want the guidance, follow the zone of practice, and it's as easy as that it doesn't get any easier.
But for us again, who will verify our love to the prophets of Allah, the companions, even those who committed sins still they love the prophet SAW Selim. And the prophets are seven testified for them. Allah subhana wa tada testified for them, who would testify for you that you love the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
A man at the time of the prophet SAW said he was a sinner.
He used to drink.
Drinking is one of the major sins it's not any general sin, it's a major sin.
So he would be brought before the prophet SAW Selim and the prophet SAW Selim would command the companions to punish him, then he will be brought in again and he will be punished. One time one of the companions, it was reported that it was harder than the last one or another one, he cursed him.
What the bad man? How often is he brought for the punishment? Isn't he learning? The prophets I send them so do not curse By Allah, who loves Allah and His messenger.
The prophet SAW Selim is testifying for this man, that he loves Allah and the messenger also, although this man was committing a major sin, how that is possible. It is.
Yes, sometimes we get overwhelmed. Sometimes we commit sins, but still, do you have this love. You have this conviction that whatever happens, I want to stay on the death on the edge on following the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And as Robbie Lohan says, 100 only one Have you made all the companions very happy,
because they knew it applies today. One man came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam telling him
in this dunya nowadays we are with you, we see you, we sit with you, but in the hereafter you are in a very high level.
How can we meet you? How can we reach that level? You are away from us. We don't want that. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, a lot of Oh, man, man, I have a man or woman, for that matter is with whoever he or she loves.
And so don't say is this happy was like the greatest glad tidings for the companions. Why? Because they were sure that they love the puppets. He was to them more precious than anything else.
So do we have that long?
Again, where the main point is to follow the profits on seven, or the main point is to please our whims and desires. And then we say, if it's the solid handle, if it's not, we tried to give ourselves leeway excuse. Maybe there is abrogation, maybe it's sweet, maybe, for the companions, they did their best to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet, so we cannot follow them. And hence, unless we value what the prophet SAW Selim did, unless we know more about the Prophet, so I said, and that's even once again, as I told you in our time, it's not a matter of knowledge. How do we have access to a lot of Hadith of the Prophet? But are we willing to follow? companions? We're not
worried about access of knowledge, excessive Hadith. One thing for them was enough, as long as they would implement it. That's why I'm loving oma Allahumma and the other companion said, we will not exceed 10. Nowadays, people compete, I can memorize 101 surah, one juice. I could memorize the entire plan in two years humbler? That's good, but what is the implementation? They said we would not exceed 10am until we understand that we implemented
And then we move forward.
only one honey could make the difference jabber of novela and this is one final example inshallah Javelin Abdullah of your life. The Companion of the prophet SAW Selim, the son of the Companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He heard that one of the companions knows Hadith that Jabba did not know that one of the one of the companions who narrated a lot of Hadith
more than 1000 Hadith
of the Prophet SAW Selim so he would be one of the people who narrated a lot of hobbies. Still, he heard that there is one companion who narrates Hades and Jagger does not have this.
What is that companion? He was in a sham
in Damascus, afterlife in release?
What is jabber for the law? He is in Medina.
How far is that? About 1000 kilometers
at their time, that was the distance of a trip of about a month.
He traveled entire month just to learn this.
The knock on the door
hose This is a job of the LASIK jammer, the Companion of the practice and he said yes, he came out of the lab nice for the last one. And he embraced him.
He said what brought you in? He said I heard that you are narrating a hadith from the Prophet class. And he said yes, I heard the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saying you shall now so fat and Moroccan Hola. That's the Hadith. vehicle will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment. barefooted fatten rotten, naked as a large object created Lola uncircumcised.
So Javon confirmed that he heard this hadith from Prophet Solomon said yes, Abdullah name is jabber alongside just like a lot later on and he kept going back.
He went back and told him say, he said, No, that's what I came for. I got it and going back. Now, people are coming to you almost to your house to tell you about the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. But what is the problem? Again, as I told you, it's not access to knowledge. It is the willingness how are we willing to implement? Do we value? What the prophet SAW Selim need for us? What the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim need for us? Once we do that, then it won't be easy. For you, it will be easy. But if we don't do that, if we don't value if we don't learn more about who the prophet SAW Salem was, what did he do? Then it doesn't matter how many thoughts were given
how many books we read, the problem was still there. We tried to give ourselves excuses. So following is very important, we are following the best example.
The perfect example. Allah has sent the Prophet sallallahu wasallam as a guide, as a light.
What Nicoletta de la serapion Mr. T that totalizer just says about the prophet SAW Selim.
Allah says that we sent to you light and guidance, which is the prophets on line seven, so it is there, but are we willing to follow following the message of prophets alive send them is not only by doing what the prophet SAW some of the some people they think that as long as we do, what the prophet sallallahu Sallam did, then we are following his message that is part of follow.
That's not the entire following. Following does not become complete until we also leave what the profits are solid life.
So the true following the true following of the profits, Arsalan is by doing what the prophet SAW said, I'm the, and by leaving for the prophets of Salaam led by not doing what the prophet SAW said and did not do. Many times people ask, can we do this? Is it good to do this? And I immediately asked back, did the prophet SAW Selim say, do it or say you should do it? They say no, but there is no but he did not do it. Then why are you arguing? What are you trying to prove him? Well, our time is different. As long as it is good, it should have been part of the message of the prophets Assalam. The Companions testify that there was nothing good for us, except that the prophet SAW
Selim told us about there was nothing evil, except that the prophets of Salaam warned us against it. That's it.
So while you try to add more, what are you trying to do? That's why the scholars say, whenever people add something, try to do something in the religion. Now again, I'm not talking about the dounia. Using my using projector, of course, the Protestant did not do that that's different thing where this is from the dunya. We're talking about the religion, doing part of the battle that the prophets I send them these scholars say people will never do that until they leave sooner, it will be always at the expense
of following the Sunnah of the Prophet so the Life Center. So following the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim is by doing what the prophet sallallahu Sallam did, and leaving what the prophet SAW sent him also, like,
if it was good, do you have to be 100%? Sure, the prophet doesn't would have done or would have said to people to do it. He did not do it. He did not tell the people to do it, then it's not good. You have to be sure of that. He was the perfect example. That's one thing. Okay. One thing of following the main hatch of the topic, there is another thing also, which is following the example fully, not partially. Unfortunately, nowadays, we thrive to pick and choose. We like to be in the comfort zone, whatever is good for us. hamdulillah we're doing it. It's part of the synagogue. What about this part? that's also part of the sooner? No, no, that's hard for me to follow. It's a full package.
Islam is one thing you cannot pick and choose.
Again, when you will be able to follow everything when you have the full love of the Prophet. When you have the knowledge of what the prophet SAW said, and I'm saying this because unfortunately, some people they come to demonstrate hamdulillah Mashallah. They are keen to follow every step of the prayer of the prophet SAW Selim. He raised his hand
to the level of his shoulders or to the level of these logs, they go to the differences of opinions, they go to the howdy This is this owner. Then, before the record, did he raise his hands did he not raise his and they are following that after they leave the message. That's it. They don't follow the Sunnah of the prophet or anything else. Why? The example of the prophet SAW Selim was perfect in all aspects of life, not only in the prayer, not only in fasting, even in eating even the way the prophet SAW seven eight. There is an example of the prophets are set up to follow do we do that?
example the prophets I send them as the companion said, neither are solo ye solo Arsalan farm and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam never criticized food industry. If he liked that food, he would eat it. If he disliked it, what in Korea hotaka he would leave it. I don't want to
compare that to our time. Or this food is bad, or I don't like this, or what people will say if they invited me and I did not eat and why why we are putting a lot of shackles. A lot of difficulty on us that's not the Sunnah of the Prophet Allah. You like the foodie? You don't like it, leave it that's it.
Some people they say, Oh, I cannot eat from this food. This is very fanciful. The prophet SAW said an aid the most expensive types of food, honey, BBQ meat, got me anything. And sometimes he would eat very cheap food, dry bread,
dipped soaked in vinegar. Something that even the poor people would not eat for several days. That was all the food. So he would not try to be someone else. That's whatever is available. I eat it. That's one example. Are we following that example of the manager of the profit center? Again, it's not only about how we pray. It's interesting when I see people very keen hamdulillah that's good. They want to know exactly how the prophet SAW Selim raised his hand. Did he say Bismillah? That? That's good. But what about the other aspects that's also part of the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim, are we following that? The way the prophets of Salaam was dressed? Let me ask you this
brothers and sisters. What was the dress of the Prophet Solomon said what is the sun? We're
is up. So this is not the sun now.
I'm asking. You know what these are? It's the lower government so I have to keep the upper part open.
So is I worry that Rita is just like during Hajj and Umrah
You know, we were to pieces for men. So that's the sooner
because when we say it's the sooner that's what the professor used to do.
Okay, so what about this though? That's not of the sunlight? What about wearing pants?
Whatever about that.
What do you think? Was there a certain type of cloth that the prophet SAW Selim kept wearing? And he never change? No. Unfortunately, nowadays, we tend to have this
fake appearance that this is the sooner
profits are seldom used to wear whatever is
whatever is available at his time he would wear the sister mentioned these are angry that he would work that sometimes he would wear, you know, Hola, have you heard this term? Hola. Hola is two pieces. But two complete pieces not upper and lower. Hola is like this one full piece and then another one like the clock. But they are matching. That's why it's called Hola. Okay. Sometimes he would wear different pieces, two pieces. Jabba Jabba is the cover on. So he would resolve and three that he was where he would wear jumper anything that was available. So why now we come and we say I have only to work this if I did not wear this then are not following the sooner that's not true.
That is not true. The point I'm trying to make is that the Sunnah of the prophet SAW center is complete. It's a full thing. It's not here and there. Whatever people use the web. That's it.
It was never reported that a man of the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim accepted Islam and then the Prophet Assam token for you are now Muslim, you have to change your clothes. Even for the sisters, let me ask you this. Now there are certain codes for the dress for Muslims, men or woman, but for sisters in particular, is there a certain color that they have to wear? That is the sooner? Are you sure? So the black color is not the summer. So why then some people think that women they have to wear black other than that it's not the summer, sometimes Subhanallah it is culture. Sometimes we add something to our religion, claiming pretending that it is part of the religion is
not. It's just like, if you have 100% pure natural juice, and you try to add water to that 100% pure what will happen? Will it increase its value or lose its value?
That's what we are doing. We are fainting because the religion is complete.
That's what the last or just testified for the prophets arsenal. A young man asked Mel to Lachlan Deena will act naantali calamity will lead to local Islam. And in that sense,
this ayah was revealed on the day of alpha in the year of the Hajj, farewell Hajj on the 10th year of return of the prophets, Allah. So Alonzo just testifies that the religion is complete. So who are you to come and to add, we don't need your addition. Okay, so that's the image of the Prophet come along and follow it completely.
Now, if you did not follow it in one part, because you could, that doesn't mean you are not a follower of that. So you would give yourself an excuse not to follow it in another aspect. Try your best. Try your best one at APU.
Whatever the profits are, so then demanded you then do it. One and a half man who felt that whatever eliminate you from them, refrain from doing.
But what happens when we get overwhelmed or we try but we feel like it's too much.
Fear Allah as much as you could.
At least at least if you try your best, and the Lord knows what's in your heart. Are you intending to follow the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim? Or you follow your whims and desires? And then you think, Oh, is this a summoner? Or this is another some?
Again, some people they would pretend to follow the pseudonym in certain aspects only in the event that the ritual acts that they are done in certain places in the masjid, during Ramadan, during Hajj, what about other aspects of life, even in our life, even in our dunya there is Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
that's following demand of the prophet or me
work even if you are employee, when you are an employee, what is the certain that you have to perfect your job as much as possible, don't say this is for linear. That's not part of the religion. So I don't care as long as I'm getting my paycheck at the end of the month, that's not the son of the Prophet.
So again, follow the man has completely try to do your job perfectly. And the beauty about the Sunnah of the prophet SAW said that it is a continuous process. It's not only one day job, and then that's it hamdulillah I reached the level of forgiveness so I don't have to work anymore. Though there is nothing like that. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was told in the Quran, why Buddha Rebecca had to kalliopi worship You Lord until certainty comes to you. What certainty means here in this if it means that
until you die, you follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So again, for us Muslims, it's an everyday process. It's a daily process. You don't say, today I am.
Good hamdulillah I did everything I want. So that's tomorrow, I don't have to worry more every day process. And not only that, the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that every day you should be better than the day before. You should be better. Today you did something good. Tomorrow, you will do something better. Today, you said stuff you love 10 times tomorrow it should be 11 or 15 times. So every day you are improving yourself. hydrocone the process and him says the best of you the best among you
the one who lived long and he did good deeds. Okay. But if every day you wake up in the morning and you do exactly the same thing that you did yesterday, actually, by the sun. Now the prophet SAW said now you are a loser. If you do the same, let alone if you are doing less.
There is a hobbyist it has weakness in it but the meaning is true. When Siva by Naomi for whom a boon he who equalizes his two days is a loser. If today was the same, like yesterday, you didn't do any better. If you didn't do any good today, you are a loser.
No one. Today, no one in management in business administration could give you better motivation than this. profits are. Every single day you wake up in the morning, you sign the last panel data for giving you a new day, you have to make this thing work. You have to work in this day. That's the process. That's the main hedge of the profits of the lions. So again, are we true followers of the prophets answer. It's not about access to knowledge. We have a lot of books, we have a lot of lectures, people are coming to our homes from all over the world. I came from America.
That's where I live, but I came not from Syria, I came to give a talk tomorrow inshallah there will be a course.
People are coming. You just have to have the willingness to implement the sooner to do what you know that this is good. And it is beneficial. Nowadays, many people say you ask them why you're doing this, you know, it's wrong. Yeah, I know. But it's my job. I know, but, and they start giving them themselves these excuses that will not help.
Even if you know what is good, and what is bad. Many people do until you do what is good.
That's even not only enough, until you do what is good, and you keep doing it.
And until you do, what is the best of the two good things. See how hard it is as a process. But once you train yourself, totally normal.
You know what is good? And what is evil? That's one step. You do what is good, you implement that? That's another step. And you know, what is the best of the two good things?
Because many times it's clear what is good and what is bad. But what is the best of the two good things.
That's why every day at least 17 times when we sort of had to hand the prayer we say in our study, what does it mean? Again, we repeat that but unfortunately, because we repeated a lot we tend to forget what does it mean to guide us to the straight path.
You already got it you are a Muslim. So what does it mean? It means grant us steadfastness. You will guide it yes you are a Muslim, but you want to keep this guidance, you want to increase this guidance. All these are meanings of innocence.
So again, many examples from the time of the companions of the Prophet tonsil and how they follow the Sunnah of the Prophet.
Because they knew everything that is good it is there.
Even if we thought that we want to do harder, some of the companions of the processor and they thought that the prophets Allah is the one who's forgiven. So it doesn't have to work more. So we have to work more. They have this notion and the prophet SAW Selim corrected that. No, I am the most fearful person for a lot of time. I am the most knowledgeable person amongst you with a lot of data yet, I sleep. And I wake up for prayer tonight. I eat meat, and I fast. So if you think that by doing more, you are following the Manhattan? No, you follow the manhunt by doing exactly what the prophets have aligned 70 that's the true follow up blog and Amazon Arsenal, the law of humor. He was
excited when he was used. And he wanted to fast every single day, every single day. So the Prophet told him no. So he said, What about our fast one day and I break my fast one day process and told him why not you fast, one day, and you break your fast two days. So you have one day fasting to this breaking your fast and they want the first thing. And the last step? I can do more? I want one day and one day process and I'm totally okay.
What happened later, and the love of the human he regretted that because he became all difficult on the first one day and the last one day he said I wish I took the concession of the Prophet sign silence. Now this is optional, so he could have stopped it immediately. But why he didn't do it? Because again, remember, you don't start something good and then you stop. That's our problem. Sometimes we get happy excited one day hamdulillah I prayed in the night three hours with what about the next night? What about the next night? That's the process. The Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim that when he does something he does it continuously.
Can ama Lu demon. That's what the actual dawn says. Whenever the prophet SAW said and did something he would do it is.
So again, it's an everyday process. It is an everyday process. Every day, you elevate yourself You don't have to start with make things with hard things. Only one thing they think that's very simple thing.
I teach my kids they are taught what they read after such prayer when they wake up after murder during the night before they sleep. Many times I am with my relatives and they hear them and they get shocked it's almost like the first time they hear this Pamela This is protection for you. This protection for your own self for your children. And you're not doing doing this What does it cost? It's only moving your thumb moving your mouth. That's part of the sooner also the thicker the glass every single day. 24 hours. I like one book one man wrote, it's called Hello sooner or later 1000
during the day and night 1000
that's not all of it, but at least that's most of it. Can you imagine you wake up according to the Sunnah of the Prophet SOS and then you sleep according to the Sunnah of the prophet SAW some
one simple one final example and that will conclude with this inshallah.
What was the Sunnah of the Prophet sallahu wa sallam regarding
sleeping and talking after Isha prayer companions save can echo and no malerkotla What have you thought about the prophets Aslam dislike sleeping before Asia and talking after Asia?
We looked at our lives. What time we sleep during the night? Well, one to one. And for what? At what expense. If you sleep early, you will wake up early. You will catch the prayer you will even be able to pray in the huddle family that's part of the sooner the prophet SAW said.
Remember you will never leave the Sunnah of the prophet or settle for something better never. Now again, I understand sometimes there are some exceptions like you have a job you have a night shift temporarily in certain stage of life but generally, if you are not following the Sunnah of the proctor center, you're sleeping early, you're waking up and you're losing. You're not you are losing because that's the perfect example. It's healthier, it is better it is more blessed for your time for your risk.
The blessings are said and praise for our selves for our for his oma when we wake up early, and we try to seek the risk of Allah the provision of Allah subhanaw taala in the morning barakallahu li rheumatic fever Korea
may Allah bless
For my oma there Airlie time in the morning, but what happens we barely wake up for the prayer, pray and then immediately we go back to sleep. Why? Because we slept late. And for what?
There are exceptions again, it's seeking knowledge. If it's joining the kinship
it's doing something good Yeah. But just to watch TV to hang out with friends every single day obviously, that's not part of the summer. So again, we need to go back
one step back to our life to see what are the aspects where we are not following the Sunnah of the Prophet masala. We are losing a lot by not following he was the perfect example. You want to come close to Allah subhanaw taala follow this process. You want to become better Muslim, even better human being follow the way of the prophet SAW Selim because it was the perfect example.
I asked the last panel Darla to make us among those to listen to the guidance and follow the rest of it.
that's what I have.
I will open the floor if there are any questions Sharla if you have any comments, anything you want to share, please feel free. again as I said tomorrow inshallah there will be a course you versus you. It's about becoming a better Muslim, totally held in Medina International University in Shahada
any comments on
failed Innocence of Muslims
as Muslim what is the best thing we shall move towards this?
demonstration allowed on this
Innocence of Muslims during this recent movie that was produced against the prophet SAW Selim?
I personally, you might be shocked, but I did not watch it. I didn't see. I only heard
the feedback and the comments Why? I tell you what, I do love the Prophet class. And the Lord knows better whether I'm telling the truth or not. But I always try to busy myself with things that I am capable of doing. I am capable of doing this thing, this incident, where did it take place?
Where is it taking place?
No, no, that's the reaction.
In the States, that's where it was produced, where we are living in Malaysia. Don't we have immediate issues that we need to deal with you? Again, I'm not telling you to distance yourself from the world to be away from what the Muslims are saying. But I always believe that we have to start with and that's the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim Allah azza wa jal told the prophet SAW Selim, when the
war the nearest of your kingship, the prophet SAW, Selim was not instructed to fly or to travel to Yemen first, and then he gives that word to people in Mecca. No, you start with the people around me. So that's part of the reason why I was not involved in this thing. I believe we have Muslims country that there, yes, they need our support. There are organizations like here and other places there. Their reaction, however, that's definitely the prophets I send them
is off limits, no one is allowed to attack the prophets. Even with one word, we would sacrifice our lives, our lives,
to protect the Prophets, and the army of the baptizing, but we have to be wise also, people are watching us,
we have to ask ourselves, what is going to be useful? Because those people don't think they are idiots. They don't know what will be the reaction. That's exactly what they are doing. So if you do exactly what they expect from you, you, you will just help them.
They are looking for names for fame, and that's what they got.
Nobody knew about this producer, this is this director. And now he became famous. Why? Just because people did something wrong, something terribly wrong, like attacking the prophet SAW. Selim does not justify our bad reaction. We have to be wise even in our reaction. Now, for instance, the what happened in Libya, that Ambassador they say that he was supportive of the Libyan revolution. So was he really directly involved in this production of this movie? No. So why would we go through everything And would that be helpful? That's the thing we have to be wise now about demonstrations. Would that be helpful? I don't know. In short,
You will know if you feel that it is helpful, it is useful. No problem we can do it. The beauty about Islam, that Allah surgeon gave us many ways. Okay? Nobody can tell you just because you're not doing it knowing you're wrong. Nobody can say that. That's why we have four schools of thought each school tries its best to follow the Sunnah of the prophet SAW centers, sometimes they are right, sometimes they are wrong. So just because you're not doing what I'm doing, that does not mean I'm right and you're wrong, or you're right and I'm wrong. Okay, even with your children, they all love you. But they express their love to you in different ways. Like your son would embrace you, your
data would come and kiss you. There are many ways all of them love you the same thing. You love the prophets, I send them you want to do something useful. Whatever you believe is useful, do it. What you could do is not necessarily the exact same thing, what the other person could do. So we could join forces, we can help each other. I can do something we could do something different. But at the end of the day, we have the same goal. Protecting the prophet SAW said that defending Islam, so whatever you believe is useful. Go ahead and do it.
Someone gave me a hadith
will come out from
the throng of the chiffon will come from the
Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told about a good Muslim from Bennington. Please comment about these heavy
sorry, I don't remember the concrete words. Yeah, the prophet SAW
when he prayed for Sham and Yemen along the Vatican and Matthew Shanina, William anina. So the companion stole the morphine, Angelina and the image. Proctor Sanam did not say that. Then they asked him, eventually he said, from that the the whole of the shutdown will come.
The thought of the shutdown will come from there from that. He said that, but what does it mean?
What does that mean?
The commenter on maka, maka, Malik, because this has this can be more problematic.
He said that, during that time, to the prophets are seldom geographically matched meant the area of everything from there was a lot. And it was true, it was the place of freedom of trials until now, it is still unstable place. So what does it mean? Again, the problem sometimes we try to generalize, just because people from their practice assumes that everyone is bad. No, it's not true. Sometimes it's talking about particular incident. It's talking about particular place, or particular generation. And that's it. So yes, this hadith is authentic, and the prophets are seldom said that. But what does it mean? That as long as it is from Saudi, then it is haram or no? That's the meaning
of the happy then a good Muslim, from Daniel Bennett. I mean, I
I'm trying to recall the exact text of the Hadith about the mutiny but again,
just because the prophets I said them, they said there is something good that doesn't mean everything comes is good.
Before the death of the prophet SAW Selim, he reminded the Muslims to be good to their in laws, their in laws, who are the most of the Muslims at that time?
people from Egypt, they were Christians, within the prophet SAW Selim marries Maria.
So they became like the most sought after saddam, asked them to be good, because it will be the Kenan like, the backup for Muslims. That's true. But does that mean everybody in Egypt is good? So our problems sometimes generalizing.
Take the Hadith always in context, what does it mean? The context of the words in context of the time as well?
What can Muslim around the world especially Malaysian
can do to reduce heavy burden of wars for the Muslims in Palestine and Syria and other places and the world? Well, there is a lot to be done. First and foremost, for starters, you could start with how often we go
For them, you feel what they are going through? That's one thing, then what could you do? Can you help them financially?
That's a lot of help. It's very crucial how much you could help them physically, just by words, sometimes comforting words could help. I tried actually to do some events. I was in South Africa, because again, I'm coming from Syria, and I witnessed terrible things, why he thinks that, I don't even want to start because I don't know if I could continue. Like themes. Whatever your heart, the kuffaar did, to the prophet SAW Selim, what is happening, it's worse. It's unbelievable. You ask yourself, are there people humans do that?
And this is what is happening. And then finally, you find yourself in a nice place with people that totally don't know about what's going on there. in Burma, Myanmar, what happened to the Muslims there, and this is a closer place to you. So what can you do? Again, some people they try to relieve themselves by just asking, I asked the question, and that's no, what can you do you ask yourself, you know better? What are you capable of? And hamdulillah it's the mercy of Allah, that Allah will not ask you for something that you cannot do. What can you do?
Have you prayed to Allah subhanaw taala for them, financial health, physical health. Again, it is a process the problem Nowadays, most of our actions, they are really reactions, we wait for something to happen, and then we react to it, instead of taking the initiative to prevent such things from happening in the future.
Education that is very helpful teaching our children you have a lot of responsibility, teaching and handling, although maybe the present time the current situation is bad, but inshallah The future is for Muslims, all these all what is happening now? They are like introductions to the good thing that is coming for Muslims. Chava. So inshallah, at least at least if we did not become part of the solution, at least we shouldn't be part of the problem. At least we teach our children, what is good, what should they do? Maybe we cannot do anything with our hands, but maybe the next generation could do.
Why is the Quran Allah has?
I'm not clear. Exactly what is the question? Why is the plan Meanwhile, alas, xojo chose this book, for what proves that the plan is the book of Allah. There is an entire talk on this about
the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, it is miraculous, and the last Jedi chosen, everything is there. Now for wattana 50. shades, nothing is neglected. Because nowadays people ask, don't we need another book? Don't we need the other message? No, it is already there in the Quran. Nothing is abrogated. It is still valid. So again, I'm sorry, I'm not clear on the question. I could talk more I actually did.
A thought I gave the talk. It's recorded and it's even sold online. To see these series of lecture two series about the origin story of the planned internal miracle of Islam.
So now it comes down to one in India we have some
How do we know whether some customs before a wedding? How do we know whether they are just
harmless practices or innovations?
Wedding itself it is part of Islam. But also it is open.
That's the beauty again about Islam that gave you different ways to practice.
What the last commandment winning the railways, he does not take more than a minute or two minutes maximum. That's the only way he Java.
the guardian of the girl or the girl with her father, or whoever is guardian for that matter. You have the two witnesses. You have the husband, you have the job and that's it. That's the wedding. Everything else that's custom.
That's not part of the religion. That's why if someone asks what is the Islamic process of selling
Celebrating the wedding.
You cannot give him specific way. Because what people practice here in Malaysia is different than what people may be practicing in Indonesia, or in Syria, in Egypt, in Saudi, different practices, no one can say that's the Sunnah. And that's
why it's open.
It is open. So whatever is left to people to practice, that's it, as I told you like, codes, it's lifting what people practice that's lifting. That's part of the greatness of Islam, that is perfect. It's suitable for every generation. So in terms of wedding, as I told you, the Islamic wedding, what it really takes is only a minute or two, the job and you confirm that the offer is there for this husband to marry this woman, and he agrees, you specify the amount the Two Witnesses are witnessing that's, that's the way the time of the prophet SAW Selim companions would come. And he would ask the girl, you want him to be your husband? Yes. That's it. I am very new to her. That's it. So we don't
need to make it difficult. So as I'm saying, everything else beyond that is custom.
When does this become be that when we insist on making this part of the wedding, it's not part of the wedding, it's this just the practice of people its culture, when we put this culture and say that it is part of the illusion when it becomes black.
Other than that, you're free to practice whatever you want.
Is it okay if we learn how much knowledge but not implement
this then, for example,
we for classes few times, we listen to lectures, daily
readings books all the time. What is your intention? Now? This is the question what is your intention attending classes, reading books, what is your intention? Because for every single act, you have to have an intention, you can give now, what was your intention before the start? You came because your friend is coming? You came? Because you have nothing else to do this hour of the night. So you decided all you can you have an intention that you might learn something useful? As long as you have the correct intention, there is no stop.
There is no stop. There is never enough for the Muslim there is never enough, just like the greedy man, the greedy businessman who wants more money, he will never stop even if he was the richest man on earth. For you. You don't know, even if he was asked one time, he's the man. The leader have understood that his time. And people follow him in 1000s. And they saw him with the feather the fan as their time and the input. And they asked him until when you start
writing and learning. He said, Man,
I will keep holding and carrying my inkwells until I
I enter my grave. So there is no, there is never enough. But again, you have to purify with intention. Don't say oh, I have a lot. Let's stop learning until I implement No, you learn and
you learn and because the shavon would come to you maybe from that area where he stops you from learning. Good. Okay, what about what you learn in the back in the past when you implement that? No. So now you are not implementing and you're not learning? So try to correct your intention and learn more there is no stop for that.
Is she are a threat to Sony's? Yes, in January? They are because part of
the knowledgeable ones have that not the lay men amongst them, the knowledgeable ones of them. They believe that they come close to a loss of data by killing you. That's part of a belief.
And you see that manifested
when the reality hits, as we say, in America, when the
shovel hits the shore, when the rubber hits the road, you see that and that's what we see in Syria.
But in general, again, we're not
conspiracy theorists where everything is against us. Once we see that they are doing this then yes, we say Are they a threat in general? Yes. But again, generalizing is
not correct because you might find some people amongst the shadowgun people, you might find them and there is, some of them they are. But in general, that's their belief. In their belief, they come close to Allah subhanaw taala by killing you. They consider you number one enemy, not the disbelievers you, they to them, they are haters. We are the ones that deprive me of the loved one and his progeny from the left. And to them collabora is the most important pillar of the man.
If you don't believe that he is the man and his children are the Imams The Holy Father after the Prophet Arsalan, then whatever you do whatever either that prayer fasting you do is not helpful. So that's part of them. So because of that, I say yes, in general, the officer in general,
and wise Muslim does not wait until the danger comes. The wise Muslim always takes precautions
