salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah
To my esteemed elders, and to the administrators of this prestigious institution, and to the staff, people and to the eldest students, and to the most youngest ones,
I am very honored
to come to an institution
and to even know that I'm standing here
in a Masjid a house of Allah subhanho wa Taala, which is under in transition.
And so, any words we say or any intentions that we make,
or any contribution which we make,
here standing in this honorable place, it will act for us as a sort of cartoon geria.
It will be for us also as one of the things which the prophets Lawson mentioned,
element of it will be,
it will also produce hopefully, one or two solid
children, progeny who will make dua for us when we pass on.
So, my Nia for coming here today
was to try to make my footprint
to say something that may impact upon the minds of a young student or an older student, because we never know who is here.
And I want to remind you remind myself
that among the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Allah tells us himself of the special station which they had in the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala refers to them in this manner, he says I was a bit lazy militia towards him about the long run.
Delica leemon hashirama.
This is the level of the company the relationship which they established with Alon is messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And among those people,
there was a man
who was considered to be
nondescript in his manner
sort of looked down upon.
No one knew what talents he had. And in fact, he was sort of the kind of person we call in the English language, eclectic meaning always sort of like making a new nuisance of himself.
Always following the profits lost him where he went, sitting outside the house of the profits, a lot of us to them.
Always sitting near him, following him, wanting to sleep outside his door, never wanting to leave the profits. A lot of us up until some of the companions of the Prophet Sawsan used to tell him you don't leave the officers alone. Why you keep bothering him, Go away, just stand over go over there.
But the profit, some longer lives, special love for this person.
And he that person and others like him.
They will call and suffer.
Because the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam, he built a special platform in his Masjid for them.
That man's name was Abu huraira de la and he says his nickname
because he used to keep small cats with him in his leave of the time. They give him this name, Herrera.
And in reading the Sierra of the prophets, a lot of which is always revealing every time we read the Sierra, it is revealing more for us
that this man Abu huraira, whose name cannot be overlooked any page of Sahih Bukhari
Any page of Sahih Muslim, of of the size center, turn any page almost, you'll find his name there.
And the Euro rhodiola Juan Carlos
Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam like that
a man who now is known to us
in this posterity and this time
to be the most prolific
reader of authentic hadith from Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is it is this correct?
Only one person comes near to Him,
among the companions of the Prophet, so awesome and this was at Isha rhodiola. And
so, we would think
that Abu huraira
that he was one of the most prominent of the companions of the Prophet philosophy, of course, to us, he is
no doubt, we would have thought that he would have joined the prophets, a lot of them early in his life
in Mecca, and then he will stay with the prophets philosophy all the way up until the time the Protestants and passed away
we would have also thought perhaps that he was one of the most preeminent people of chorale
and that he was prepared by the profits or loss in himself to be a receptacle for Hades.
We will think that, but that is not the case. Actually, Abu huraira
was only with the profits and losses in two and a half years is it two and a half or three years,
two and a half or three years
and the last part of the hitter
in the days of Medina.
And he had a special characteristic deficiency,
which he said it's in a well known part of the serum.
He said one day, he came to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Salman, he said,
Yasuda, la, la la la, la, he, I want to try to retain from you some things, but I cannot.
I cannot remember anything.
Just my mind cannot hold it.
And the messenger velocity loss and took a shot from around his shoulders
and laid it on the ground
and passed his hands over the show.
reciting some words, and he gave it to Abu huraira. And Abu huraira put it around him. And he said, while lying
after that day, I never forgot any single word from the Messenger of Allah.
short period of time, a man of deficiency, a man who was considered to be a nuisance,
but whom the profit and loss in love. And who's who of Allah, whomsoever the prophet SAW said, loves Allah orders jabril to love and whoever jabril loves Allah loves. So Allah had special love for a Buddha gave him this gift.
We take another Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
who was a young boy, like maybe
13 1415 years old.
Who was the son
have one of the favorite uncle's of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
And even though he was a young man, very young like some of you here
he was soon to become the Mufti of Medina.
Who are we speaking about
in the long run,
who became the musty in the time of Abu Bakr, Siddiq Amata
Raja Mohan whom, the whole affair, he yet this young boy he was the Mufti. Why
they could not give fatwa they did. They gave a fatwa.
But they made reference to an Abbess because the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave him a special
To give fatwa
because he knew
somebody was certain
that Allah subhanaw taala gave him a vehicle, a mind, and a heart that was so clear that whatsoever the prophet SAW some gave to him from Garmin from Tafseer. And from other things. It's set upon his mind like that, and it responded like a mirror.
And because the prophet SAW all of us and gave him a gesture to give fatwa while he was living, when the prophet SAW Sam passed away,
would pass any issue without asking a bass
for their loved one.
And I give you another example
of a young man who was the son of another
great companion of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
One day the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam, called
a young man by the name of Osama
told him, yeah, Osama today, I will take you to an area where your father was martyred.
I will allow your horse I will allow the feet of your horse to walk in the place where your father was martyred.
And this was
a special gift the prophet SAW symbols given to Osama at that age at that time, Osama was 14 I believe may be 15.
The chef he will correct me
and the prophets lost him took him I think it was taboo or
or where they fought the Jews Jews, Hiva this area
and before the profits and loss and passed away,
he gave Osama a station we cannot imagine how a young boy could be given this kind of station
when the Messenger of Allah so son passed away I believe Osama was 16
and the professor's have appointed him as the
Amir of the Muslim army, the commander.
And it would seem impractical to most historians, or academia
or to biographers, or to people looking from the outside to measure qualifications. How could the Messenger of Allah so some select a young boy like that, over all these eminent companions hardly obey the lightning genre, all these great companions on top how he could select them like that.
But the Messenger of Allah lost him is selecting always from what he
Something we cannot do from what Allah subhanaw taala inspires him with.
And when Norma suggested to Abu Bakr de abubaker
Don't you think?
The same as the other one, because it was a pragmatist.
He's always analyzing things.
His name was Farooq
Ahmad matar, was called Ahmad Pharaoh. He was always evaluating people and things and this was his quality. So he says to abubaker Golan Yeah, Baba.
Don't you think that we should maybe select someone who is more seasoned, more mature, more experienced
in place of Oussama
and he was thinking like most people think.
I never thought like the other people thought when the mystery of alas dose they made the israa and the mirage. You see how the people thought but how did you think
is thinking as Siddiq.
armoring, the manifestation of heart.
Honoring, always following supporting, never doubting, never being pragmatist. Not trying to analyze but just
Attila atira su philosophy, the man that manifested that the most was Abu Bakr Siddiq.
how do you think that Abu Bakar he took the suggestion of armor? was the other one? He was very angry?
He asked him
Are you asking me
to reverse a decision of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu? He asked him like that. Are you asking me to reverse a decision of the Messenger of Allah? sallallahu wasallam? Is that what you're doing?
How dare you even suggest something like that? The Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, there was no one better for this position except his father.
After that, he kept quiet.
You know, just like he kept quiet when he said, if anybody says the profitsystem is dead, I would kill him.
And what did you tell him then?
He's very intelligent. He said, Oh, people, he didn't say to me, he said, Oh, people, because everyone don't want to say nothing in front of armor.
He said, Oh, people.
Look, if any one of you is worshipping Mohammed Salas and he's dead.
If you are worshipping a lot, he has a high you
And he never dies, lay your mood.
And oma at that time. He also was what? Quiet, say nothing.
Because he knew that a person
who was the emanation of Huck among the people civic,
could not speak after that.
So Osama sapan, Allah Osama was the man
that when the Romans who were six or seven times the size of the Muslim army, the Persians who were six or seven times the size of the Muslim army,
when Osama came out with the Muslims to fight them,
they thought to themselves,
this small army with this young guy,
they said, this small army with this young guy with them, this must be just a tactic they're using, they must have a huge group of people with us to kill us. So they ran away
to Selma, that day, he was marching in front of the army, as if he was like, towers, this building.
And he was commanding his people like he was the most eldest of all of them.
They could not believe it, this small group of Muslims and they, the Romans, and in another battle, the Persians
And in both cases, the Muslims routed them, there was not even a skirmish. So Panama, Allah give victory to Osama like that. And the prophet SAW said he foresaw that. That's why he said Osama
you brothers, sitting here today, somebody among you is like Abu Bakar.
I mean, some of you is like Abu huraira. Someone here is like Abu huraira, you will become more Hadith.
You will preserve the Hadith,
you will become a teacher. Although your student your fellow students is laughing at you now.
They're calling you some little names. Now.
They're saying that you can't remember nothing. You're stupid and you're distant your dad, but one of you sitting here is going to be like, we don't know which one.
And one of you sitting here
is also going to be like,
what's the second companion?
You're going to learn a cab.
And you're going to learn from Newport to become a fucky. And you you will give Hong Kong
and you will give judgments. And you will explain for the people of Trinidad and for other places which you will go
you will be young and you will be dynamic and people will Marvel to cause
a lot. Give that to somebody who's sitting here today
and one of you
We'll also take your knowledge,
but you will go to one of the battlefields of Islam.
And there are many. And there will be more soon
many battlefields for the Muslims to combat cover and shark
and for harsh
and ignorance and the enemies of Allah and the enemies of Islam. And one of you will be like Osama
no reference to any contemporary Osama. We like me mean like Osama even said, because this is the Oussama we are concerned about today, Oussama
so as I speak to you,
I'm speaking to you with a vision.
And I'm saying to you
that I have five sons $7 and 27 grandchildren.
And I'm asking Allah as a new Muslim
who came from the cover the dark places of the cover?
What's the name of that town? The brothers told me they want to take me the Brooklyn of Trinidad.
Levante? Yeah, this is like this is a Hollywood This is like a like a resort area. When it comes to Brooklyn. I want to go there. Because this is like a cakewalk for us. If you think eleventy is something Brooklyn, we can we can just like they're like lollipops for us.
That's where I'm from Harlem, Brooklyn.
So I'm not proud from where I came from. But I think a lot because a lot can reach down into the recesses the bowels of humanity, and he can pull something out, shake it off, throw it down. And here we have a person
like myself, sitting here talking to future scholars. I don't know why.
But what I deserve to be standing here talking to future scholars, and to people who are already scholars.
And to an inner place, which would be one of the largest houses of worship in this country, where I'm standing here, only because it is the cuddle
And I think Allah subhanho wa Taala that I want to tell you this message. look to the future young men, don't look for now. work very hard right now, the serious.
work very hard, left little work very hard. Don't waste your time. Keep your eyes on the prize. Keep your ear to the teacher. Let the other ones fool around.
Because one of you, some few of you will be the ones that will defend this nation.
We don't know which one of you.
We don't know from where
the armies of Allah will come? What is the AI? Oh my god.
Yes, we don't know for where the armies of law will come. But some of them will come from you
know, armies, just fighting battles in the battlefields. But armies were fighting the battles of ideas, armies of fighting the battles of ignorance. So the oma and the fuqaha, the students of knowledge, they are also from the armies of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because those who are having the weapons, and who are out leaving their lives so we can rest and eat and sleep, when they come back. We're the ones you're the ones who have to teach. And while they're out, you're the ones we're the ones who have to cultivate the knowledge and keep it flowing. And this was a promise from the messenger of a loss, a lot of them that the Islamic knowledge would never die,
scholars would die.
But the Islamic knowledge would be preserved. A lot promised that his message, his book, The sooner of His Messenger service, and would be preserved and who will preserve it, you
and I just want to be agile
That may be I struck a match that lit your candle and your candle, it create a huge Bonfire of Islamic knowledge.
So I will get there on the day of judgment that when my kids or my bad deeds are looked at, maybe a Malaika will come and say oh Lord,
he was standing in one place.
And he was not the best of any of them. But he said something
that inspired one of them to become what you wanted them to be.
And maybe that deed will tear down some of those other ones as the law says you but didn't love will say to him,
I said that.
This is what we prayed for.
And I want to remind you of the Messenger of Allah saw some speech where he said,
When Salah cattolica yakushi Allah, sal Allahu Allahu Allah, gender outcome acabo de la semi this correction.
Whosoever takes a path, as you have,
seeking knowledge there in
Allah subhanho wa Taala will make easy for you the path towards Gen. Y, it will be easy, because anyone who has a candle can find his way. But the people who have no candle, they always stumbling falling into things. You see. So the person has knowledge, the path becomes open for him, it becomes lit for him, it becomes easy for him to pass through because he has the knowledge. But those who don't have the knowledge, they bumping into things, and they got to back up and start over again. They damaging themselves and they got scars to show that the only way they will learn is they hit something and bounce back and keep going until somebody with knowledge cuts on the light and say
Brother, you don't have to go through that come through this way. This is who you are.
And brothers. Keep in mind, that all people like myself.
All the people of knowledge, the olema, the fukuhara, the elder people, the people of taqwa
they all make dua for you.
Even the Messenger of Allah, Allah live Some said
that even the melodica in the heavens
and those walking the service of Allah who walked the earth,
and even the animals and the fish inside the sea,
even the air inside its hole, it makes up for thought.
So as you're seeking knowledge, is it better for you?
Only way it will be broken as you commit some some barrier.
So make Toba to Allah regularly. And remember Allah subhanaw taala regularly. And since Salawat are found the prophet SAW them regularly. And listen to your teachers and to obey your parents and make extra a badger and make dua for the people who give to you, your parents and the people of knowledge, do this and you will become the seal.
If you become meclizine then you don't have much to worry about
because you will become more or less.
The brothers I'm very grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala to be here today to remind you of issues which some people have reminded me and I asked a lot so pelota Allah
that one of my sons, who is not so religious, but they are already adults,
that one of you will inspire him
and they will come back and become like one of you
and I pray to allow that my youngest son Abdul Hakim, who is just 16 months
that when he is of the proper age, I will bring him here
because why should I take him someplace else?
I would bring him here in Sharma
and he will come here speaking Spanish and he will come here speaking English and he will come here speaking Arabic already, inshallah, because before I bring him here, he has spent six years in McCann Sharma
just to get the language and to become familiar with
because he made the wife when he was just 13 months, frolicking around the huddle.
So I know he has a love for how he did it on his own. He just saw the people moving he crawled with them.
So I would bring him inshallah, inshallah, so he can memorize Quran, and that he can memorize Hadees and zero and fifth.
See under qualified people in a good clean environment. And maybe Abdul Hakeem will be the Son, or one of my grandsons will be the one
who will achieve what I could not achieve. And if Abdul Hakim is not the one or one of my grandson's is not the one make dua for me and one of you will be the ones who will achieve what I could not achieve.
I asked Allah subhanaw taala to make me a partner and
you know where he says hell I do love Allah t Jarrah, Tintin, g komen Allah make me a partner like that. And that business
malasadas join our hearts together, create love, create a love for me, for you, and a love from you for me and a love for us for the pseudo loss a lot of them because whoever loves each other only for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala
then special guarantees have been given by a loss of Palo Alto for that, you know, in the hadith of Al Motta, Bula be Gianelli Yama loom.
Who are those who love each other only for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This day, a lot of surprises Allah says
I would give them shade.
On a day there will be no shade except my shade.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala to cause you to be a normal for Trinidad.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala to cause you to be a guidance for the future generations. We ask Allah subhanaw taala that this Masjid that it will be expanded
that it will be full
immediately and it will be expanded and not only it will be full on Juma, but it will be full at fetcher. It will be full at throttle Asia, as it will be full for pmla.
This would be pre because when the messages come back like that, then the earth will come back under our feet belonging to us. When the law sends the earth back then only to us everything on the earth would be under our command. But if the earth is not under us like that, why should the rest of the earth be under our command? No, we are under its command.
May Allah bless you brothers, and bless your teachers and bless the institution and the founders of this institution. And we should make drive for them every day because we would not be here except that they had a vision and they made the sacrifice.
