but your brothers and sisters

00:02:35--> 00:02:38

we are currently in the Islamic month of Robbie Allah. Well.

00:02:42--> 00:02:43

It is in this month

00:02:45--> 00:02:48

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born.

00:02:49--> 00:03:04

And it was in this month that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam made his historic journey, the hedgerow to Medina. And it was in this month that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam breathed his last and passed away.

00:03:06--> 00:03:08

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:10--> 00:03:12

said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

1400 years ago

00:03:16--> 00:03:19

when the world was filled with darkness.

00:03:20--> 00:03:29

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala sent the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam bringing light to this world after its darkness

00:03:31--> 00:03:45

Kitab una Angela who Elijah Leto region nurse Amina guru Murthy Isla no reads me Robbie him, Eros, Eros, Aziz al Hamid, a book that we have sent down

00:03:47--> 00:03:49

for you, oh, Mohammed

00:03:51--> 00:03:57

to bring people out of the darkness into the light by the permission of their Lord

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

to the path of Allah Aziz, the ID and Hamid the Praiseworthy one.

00:04:06--> 00:04:12

And so my dear brothers and sisters, Allah subhana wa tada said, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:04:14--> 00:04:20

to bring us out of the darkness of Cooper and ship.

00:04:21--> 00:04:23

And the darkness of this dunya

00:04:24--> 00:04:32

into the light of he man and the guidance of Allah. And Allah subhana wa tada sent His Prophet His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:04:34--> 00:04:36

to not only save us in this dunya

00:04:37--> 00:04:41

to save us from the eternal punishment in the US.

00:04:42--> 00:04:47

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describing who he was

00:04:48--> 00:04:49

describing him

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

and what he

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

was doing with his own. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, meta Lee

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

warmaster lucam cometary Rosalyn, aka Donovan for Jonathan genoveva Saracen,

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

well who is

00:05:15--> 00:05:16

he says my example.

00:05:18--> 00:05:21

And your example, is a command who goes out

00:05:23--> 00:05:24

in the desert

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

and he ignites a fire.

00:05:28--> 00:05:36

And then you see, the insects, the marks, the grasshoppers coming, falling into this fire because they're attracted to it.

00:05:38--> 00:05:44

While the person who ignited it, he's trying to prevent them from falling into it.

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

He Ward's them away from

00:05:49--> 00:05:52

the Prophet sallallahu wasallam goes on to say,

00:05:53--> 00:05:56

See, don't be fooled as he commanded Noreen, what

00:06:01--> 00:06:05

he says, and I am holding on to you by your waists by your belts

00:06:07--> 00:06:11

preventing you from entering the fire, but you're slipping from my handles.

00:06:14--> 00:06:16

Until the Prophet sallallahu I mean, he was settled and

00:06:17--> 00:06:51

was sent to save us from the Hellfire and the punishment of a loss of Hannah who went to Holland. And this is how he Salome and he was sent him was sent as a mercy to us, we always hear it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a mercy for mankind. He was sent as a mercy, what our understanding that enlargement and Ileana mean, we do not send you all Mohammed except as a mercy for mankind. What does that mean? One of the things that he means

00:06:52--> 00:07:14

is that if I was a parent who had not sent him some of what he was saying to us, to guide us, to save us from the Hellfire, we would have been doomed. Today we would have still been in the darkness is that the people of Jehovah were in a hurry not been for him, so long as he was coming and guiding us.

00:07:15--> 00:07:23

And so his mission, his mission sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was to guide mankind.

00:07:26--> 00:07:33

He was sent to guide them to save them from the Wrath of Allah Subhana Allah.

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

And so because his mission

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

because it was meant

00:07:41--> 00:07:52

not with open arms, but with resistance. Because of that. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went through the hardship that he went through

00:07:54--> 00:08:02

the difficulties, the trials, that he went through what he went through, to the point where he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:08:04--> 00:08:12

that no one on this face on the face of this earth, goes through trials and tribulations like the prophets and the messengers.

00:08:15--> 00:08:17

And so if you think you've had a dad,

00:08:18--> 00:08:25

then just look to the length of the Prophet sallallahu. How do you send him? And look at the trials and tribulations that he went through?

00:08:26--> 00:08:32

The insult the mockery, be an exile kicked out of his city,

00:08:33--> 00:08:38

being attacked, being threatened, going to war with his enemies.

00:08:42--> 00:08:44

And so because of all of that,

00:08:46--> 00:08:49

he put up he resisted, for what?

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

For his own self,

00:08:53--> 00:08:57

for his own glory for his own personal interests?

00:08:59--> 00:09:02

No, because if that was the case, that he was offered everything

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

on the condition that he abandoned his mission.

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

But he persisted. Why,

00:09:10--> 00:09:12

first and foremost, because of the commander of Oman.

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

And certainly, for me,

00:09:17--> 00:09:21

if he had not persisted until the day a logical we saw,

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

we would still be in the darkness.

00:09:26--> 00:09:29

The Darkness is of the people of Jackie Lee.

00:09:30--> 00:09:32

We would not have been guided to this deal.

00:09:35--> 00:09:35

And we would not

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

have been saved from the Hellfire had it not been for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam persisting until the last day. And so he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:09:51--> 00:09:52

He did it for me and you?

00:09:53--> 00:09:54

Yeah, you had Latina

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

is the G boo de la he

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

Rasulullah Elijah from demography Can you believe, respond?

00:10:08--> 00:10:12

When Allah and His Messenger call you

00:10:13--> 00:10:15

to what will give you life?

00:10:18--> 00:10:20

What he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called us to

00:10:23--> 00:10:34

was the length and the length of email and guidance. He didn't do it for his own sake, but he did it for us. And so this is why

00:10:35--> 00:10:43

we hold the most messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in our eyes and in our hearts the way we do.

00:10:44--> 00:10:45

This is why

00:10:47--> 00:10:49

we honor Him, we respect him.

00:10:50--> 00:10:52

We defend his honor.

00:10:53--> 00:10:55

We stand up for him the way we do.

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

He says, Now you

00:11:04--> 00:11:07

have una de la he,

00:11:08--> 00:11:09

he he will and he wouldn't.

00:11:11--> 00:11:17

None of you truly believe until I am more beloved to him.

00:11:18--> 00:11:24

Then his own son, his own father, and all of mankind.

00:11:27--> 00:11:37

A true test of the man is where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stands in your heart. What kind of love do you have for him, some of

00:11:38--> 00:11:49

them. And so you respect your parents. You respect your elders. You respect your teachers. Why? Because of what they've done for you.

00:11:51--> 00:12:01

Do not respect you not love the Prophet sallallahu and he was selling them for what he has done for you, which is far greater than what your own parents have done for you.

00:12:02--> 00:12:07

My dear brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:12:09--> 00:12:11

is not in need of our logo.

00:12:13--> 00:12:15

He is not in need of our respect.

00:12:17--> 00:12:23

He is not in need of our defense. He is not in need of a standing up for him.

00:12:24--> 00:12:29

Because Allah subhana wa tada has sufficed in that regard.

00:12:32--> 00:12:39

In Latin suhu faqad nassarawa, if you do not stand to defend him, that Allah has already done so

00:12:40--> 00:12:42

in Accra finacle booster has he been?

00:12:45--> 00:12:55

A law declares that he is sufficient for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam against those who mock him, those who make fun of him.

00:12:57--> 00:13:02

Allah does not need us to stand up for him Allahu Allah, he was a loving,

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

but rather

00:13:05--> 00:13:19

it is we who are in need of loving him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam showing our respect to him, defending him and standing up for him. Didn't the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

the whoever stands up for his Muslim brother

00:13:26--> 00:13:29

defending him, Allah subhana wa tada will defend him.

00:13:31--> 00:13:37

During the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam say whoever betrays a Muslim, Allah has betrayed him.

00:13:38--> 00:13:40

So if that is with regards

00:13:42--> 00:13:43

to one member of this,

00:13:44--> 00:13:59

a Muslim Then how about standing to defend the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam How Will those who betray the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while being capable of standing up to defend him?

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

My dear brothers and sisters

00:14:04--> 00:14:07

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:14:12--> 00:14:12

was sent

00:14:13--> 00:14:15

for our sake

00:14:16--> 00:14:18

and it hurts him

00:14:19--> 00:14:20

when he sees

00:14:22--> 00:14:23

that we are suffering

00:14:27--> 00:14:29

So wouldn't it hurt one of us

00:14:31--> 00:14:37

if we saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam suffering either physically or verbally

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

00:14:45--> 00:14:48

00:15:02--> 00:15:02

as he is

00:15:04--> 00:15:08

he is concerned for your suffering.

00:15:11--> 00:15:16

Not only that, but he is anxious for your safety and your well being.

Hakeem a

00:15:40--> 00:15:46

00:16:30--> 00:16:36

salvato he was Allahu alayhi wa and he was such a big woman tell you

00:16:38--> 00:16:39

another

00:16:40--> 00:16:43

story about the wah wah sweet who died of a nickel.

00:16:47--> 00:16:49

My dear brothers and sisters.

00:16:52--> 00:16:54

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:16:55--> 00:16:56

was born,

00:16:57--> 00:17:01

as we mentioned in the month of Ramadan, that we are currently in

00:17:04--> 00:17:08

with the scholars throughout history, and the historians

00:17:10--> 00:17:13

disagreed over the exact date in which he was born.

00:17:15--> 00:17:23

And so some said it was the 12th other said it is the eighth other said he was the ninth and they disagreed. Why?

00:17:24--> 00:17:32

Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never informed his companions about the exact date in which he was born.

00:17:33--> 00:17:40

Because the exact date was not that significant to him. But what he did know was that he was born on a Monday.

00:17:42--> 00:17:50

And so when the companions asked him, you know, pseudo law, why is it that you faster Mondays, he said, because this was the day in which I was born.

00:17:52--> 00:17:53

But what we know for sure,

00:17:55--> 00:18:01

is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away on the 12th of Roby.

00:18:04--> 00:18:06

And so we need to do a reality check.

00:18:07--> 00:18:08

For those of us

00:18:10--> 00:18:24

who celebrate the birthday of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, on a day in which it is agreed upon, that that was the day of his death, whereas the day in which he was born, it is disputed.

00:18:25--> 00:18:33

And so much your brothers and sisters celebrating the birthday of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not something

00:18:34--> 00:19:23

that he instructed, nor was it something that his companions, the best of this home everyday. Nor was it something that the Tabby rune did, nor was it something that it took I'd have your own date. No, no, the best of the generations of Islam celebrated his birthday. But rather, it was something that appeared something that came into this fullness. Centuries later, when some ignorant Muslims, they saw that the Christians revered the birthday of Hasani Salaam by taking the idea of celebration. And so they said, let us do the same with our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:19:28--> 00:19:29

they imitated

00:19:30--> 00:19:48

the Christians thinking that by doing this, they are reviewing and honoring the Prophet sallallahu. And he was sending me while forgetting that it was he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who warned us from imitating the Jews and the Christians, especially in their

00:19:49--> 00:19:58

in their acts of worship, and in their customs and in their traditions. And so my dear brothers and sisters, our own man is an owner of action.

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

Not

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

In honor of eras of dates of events, there were many key dates

00:20:08--> 00:20:12

and events in the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam.

00:20:14--> 00:20:15

births

00:20:18--> 00:20:21

conquests, the hit, you know,

00:20:23--> 00:20:33

that's many, many key significant events that took place in his life. But yet he did not take a single one of those days

00:20:34--> 00:20:48

as a day of celebration as a dinner party, or as a holiday, or as a memoriam. Why, to teach us that we are in of action, not an owner of these

00:20:49--> 00:20:54

events and holidays and celebrations. And so this is why I'm one of the Aloha you

00:20:56--> 00:21:09

when it came time to set the Islamic calendar. He said it not based on the birthday of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as the Christians did, but rather

00:21:10--> 00:21:17

based on the hijra of the Prophet salallahu it he was sending them. And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:21:20--> 00:21:25

we honor the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we show our respect to him.

00:21:27--> 00:21:29

We show our love for him

00:21:31--> 00:21:32

by following his students

00:21:34--> 00:21:41

by following in his footsteps, by reading about his life he Ceara by reading it sooner

00:21:42--> 00:21:55

by implementing His commandments, by staying away from his prohibitions, by taking him as our role model. naka de Canada comfy Rasulullah who swear to

for those

00:22:09--> 00:22:12

who believe in Allah and look forward to the day of judgment.

00:22:14--> 00:22:23

We show our respect and honor and love to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by standing up for him by defending his honor

00:22:25--> 00:22:28

by standing up for his reputation, when it is ripped,

00:22:30--> 00:22:50
