00:04:48--> 00:04:51

My dear Muslim Brothers and Sisters in Islam

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

Allah Tabata Quwata Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

has enjoined upon the Muslims

00:05:07--> 00:05:09

the best characteristics of behavior

00:05:13--> 00:05:22

he reminded us when He said to His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in NACA Allah Hello okay Levine

00:05:25--> 00:05:29

Wehrli O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:32--> 00:05:36

you are a pawn and exalted standard

00:05:37--> 00:05:38

of behavior

00:05:40--> 00:05:43

and he says with Hannah who were to either

00:05:45--> 00:05:59

Laqad cannula calm. G rasool Allah was what on Hassan women can a yellow joola What a human error what Docker Allahu cathedra.

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

So certainly, there is for you are believers

00:06:09--> 00:06:14

in the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:06:15--> 00:06:20

the highest standard of human behavior for anyone

00:06:22--> 00:06:24

who hopes to meet with their Lord.

00:06:26--> 00:06:31

And they remember Allah subhanahu wa taala. Much and often

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

the character of the Muslim

00:06:39--> 00:06:43

is the most important quality of the Muslim.

00:06:45--> 00:06:50

Of course, internally, the Muslim must have

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

the fire of a man

00:06:54--> 00:07:08

he or she must have knowledge to light the fire of a man. Because without knowledge, there is only the wick, and there is only the oil, but there is no fire.

00:07:11--> 00:07:27

Everyone who bears witness, that there is none to be worshipped except Allah subhana wa Bucha Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam is the Messenger of Allah, they have entered Islam, and they have made the kalam attain.

00:07:28--> 00:07:31

There they have the wick, and there they have the oil.

00:07:34--> 00:07:37

But in order to light that lamp, they need knowledge.

00:07:39--> 00:07:42

Without the knowledge, there will be no light for them.

00:07:43--> 00:07:44

They are Muslim.

00:07:49--> 00:07:51

And they are do what every Muslim is do.

00:07:53--> 00:07:57

But neither will they give light, neither will they have light,

00:07:58--> 00:08:03

they will be forced to follow someone, anyone who has some light, some knowledge.

00:08:05--> 00:08:07

But this is the internal

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

illumination of the Muslim

00:08:13--> 00:08:18

to illuminate themselves and give illumination to others they need knowledge.

00:08:19--> 00:08:26

But there is the external quality of the Muslim which is apparent to everyone. And that is the character.

00:08:27--> 00:08:30

The character, the behavior

00:08:36--> 00:08:40

the highest form of the Prophet sallallahu I never said I'm sorry, Salah

00:08:42--> 00:08:47

was his character and his impact upon human beings. How he spoke to them.

00:08:49--> 00:08:56

How he sat with them, how he walked, how he talked, how he dressed, how he ate,

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

how he looked.

00:09:01--> 00:09:11

When he laid down how did he lay down? When he ate, how did he eat when he drank? How did he drink the proportions which he used

00:09:12--> 00:09:29

when he was angry how he controlled himself when he was happy, how he controlled even his happiness, how he dealt with his neighbors, how he dealt with his children, how he dealt with his wife, how he dealt with his enemies.

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

How he wore his clothing,

00:09:33--> 00:09:36

when he received the gift when he gave a gift

00:09:38--> 00:09:39

even when he fought

00:09:40--> 00:09:42

What were his etiquettes

00:09:43--> 00:09:49

these are the illuminating parts of the prophets of Allah and Islam as a reseller

00:09:50--> 00:09:56

that are evident to the whole world that are documented for history if they don't understand the nature

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

of the way

00:10:01--> 00:10:15

If they do not understand the nature of the Revelation, and they do not understand the nature of the authenticity of his words, if they do not understand the Tafseer of the Quran

00:10:18--> 00:10:27

they are the ones the kuffaar they documented for the whole world, the character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

because it was evident,

00:10:32--> 00:10:43

evident as the sun in the sky. The same sun which is in the sky in Australia is the same sun which is in the sky in New York City.

00:10:45--> 00:10:50

And the reaction to that sun is the same for the whole world. This is why Allah subhanaw taala said,

00:10:51--> 00:10:54

well, in Naka, Allah Who local Aviv

00:10:57--> 00:11:08

when Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the prophets of Allah Allah wa salam was created and that he is upon an exalted standard of conduct, it means that no one's standard of conduct is above his.

00:11:11--> 00:11:22

But he said Laqad cannula confy Rasul Allah was with on Hasina it means it is certainly Allah says love God. Definitely, certainly, with no doubt,

00:11:23--> 00:11:32

there is for you in the Messenger of Allah, so a lot of STEM the kind of behavior that if you imitate it, you too will be upon an exalted standard of conduct.

00:11:35--> 00:11:41

The character of the Muslim is the most important part of the Muslim,

00:11:42--> 00:11:48

not what he or she says, not only what he or she wears,

00:11:49--> 00:12:03

not where they come from, or who their mother or father is, or grandfather, not the country they live in, or for that matter if they live next to the Kava is not important at all.

00:12:04--> 00:12:07

It is the character because the character is the actual fruit.

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

The character is the actual fruit.

00:12:13--> 00:12:21

If the fruit, there's a bit of fruit, if the tree there's a bit of fruit, it doesn't matter how beautiful that tree is.

00:12:23--> 00:12:30

It is the fruit that is rejected. It doesn't matter who that Muslim is and how much knowledge they have. It is the fruit which is rejected.

00:12:32--> 00:12:35

Everyone in the world loves sweet fruit.

00:12:37--> 00:12:40

It doesn't matter to them what country it came from.

00:12:41--> 00:12:42

What matters is that

00:12:43--> 00:12:47

it's very few is very sweet. It's very delicious.

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

The Muslim

00:12:53--> 00:13:00

needs to decorate themselves, complement themselves, illuminate themselves

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

with good knowledge

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

to support the character.

00:13:06--> 00:13:17

They need to complement themselves with integrity and honesty, and integrity and honesty. A very clear words.

00:13:19--> 00:13:21

Allah subhanaw taala says

00:13:23--> 00:13:26

we're going to curl and sadita

00:13:27--> 00:13:39

speak words that are straightforward and truthful. Holan said EDA clear, straight, truthful to the point. And if you do that, you will slit Allah Quran.

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

Allah subhanaw taala will make us luck.

00:13:46--> 00:13:54

He will reconciliation he will arrange he will straighten out whatever it is because you were straightforward and truthful.

00:14:01--> 00:14:06

The character of the Muslim is to be reliable and dependable.

00:14:08--> 00:14:11

Reliable, but he says he does.

00:14:13--> 00:14:16

And what he says he does it efficiently.

00:14:18--> 00:14:25

What he says he does and what he does, he does it proficiently.

00:14:27--> 00:14:30

There's the reputation the character of the Muslim

00:14:33--> 00:14:35

the Muslim must have good morals

00:14:38--> 00:14:43

and social conduct. The messenger of allah sallallahu sallam said I did not come as a cursor

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

swearing using foul words

00:14:49--> 00:14:52

when he's angry, using foul language

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

and when he sees something disagreeable using foul language, cursing it

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

complaining, criticizing, condemning even those who deserved to be cursed or condemned.

00:15:10--> 00:15:12

The Muslim should not behave that way.

00:15:15--> 00:15:18

The Muslim should have good appearance

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

and pay attention to their hygiene.

00:15:23--> 00:15:26

When the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam saw one man

00:15:28--> 00:15:33

with his hair all over his head, he told him, don't you know what is the comb?

00:15:36--> 00:15:38

take benefit of the comb.

00:15:39--> 00:15:40

Arrange yourself.

00:15:41--> 00:15:44

He told us on Juma take a bath,

00:15:46--> 00:15:50

put on Ethel for the men and wear your best clothing.

00:15:53--> 00:16:04

Because he wants the Muslims that when they gathered together, he's wants them to smell good. He wants them to look good. He told the men grow your beards

00:16:06--> 00:16:11

and clip your mustaches. This is hygiene, clip your nails

00:16:13--> 00:16:15

were good decent clothing.

00:16:17--> 00:16:21

The messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam wanting us to take care of how we appear.

00:16:22--> 00:16:35

Not to dress ostentatiously, not to dress with excess, but to be clean and to be neat and to be precise, and to be decent. So that when people looked at you, they said I like to be like those Muslims.

00:16:39--> 00:16:46

The messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam wanted us to have understanding and sensitivity. This means

00:16:48--> 00:17:00

listen to people, when they talk, listen to them and make them feel that you are listening to every word that they say and that there is nothing more important to you than what they are saying.

00:17:02--> 00:17:07

It was reported that when people came to the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah Allah wa sallam,

00:17:09--> 00:17:16

to speak with him. When he turned to them, he turned his entire body to them to speak to them. And they felt as if

00:17:18--> 00:17:33

he was not concerned about anyone else there except them. That's how he gives him his attention. And he always spoke very nice to them, giving them a very bright smile and asking them how are you? How do you feel, whether Muslim or non Muslim?

00:17:35--> 00:18:01

He was not a man frowning at the people scowling at the people saying bad things to the people dismissing the people, whether Muslim or non Muslim, and he was accessible always and sensitive to the sufferings of the people. Whether the old or the young he said some Lola Oliver said them, he or she is not of us who is not respectful to our elders, and gentle to our youth.

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

The Muslim must have patience and Subhan

00:18:10--> 00:18:19

Allah subhanho wa Taala said was that a novice southern he was solid, or in NA Allah Kabira tune in Allah Allah and hace en

00:18:20--> 00:18:23

seek help with perseverance and prayer.

00:18:24--> 00:18:33

Virtually is a difficult thing except those who have hurt your brothers please move forward. Make room for the people who will come to you in sha Allah

00:18:34--> 00:18:37

don't worry you don't need to leave much space between the rates

00:18:51--> 00:18:55

Allah subhanho wa Taala said in Surah to Lhasa

00:18:56--> 00:19:13

water was so Bill happy water was so this summer. And so today you know he said water was our will be suddenly water was so we'll narrow hammock.

00:19:15--> 00:19:18

The Muslim is patient tolerant

00:19:19--> 00:19:21

understanding and sensitive

00:19:23--> 00:19:31

whether to the animals or to the young or to the old to the Muslim or the non Muslim, they are showing dignified behavior.

00:19:33--> 00:19:38

The Muslim has good communication skills. He or she

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

learns to speak

00:19:42--> 00:19:43

where they are

00:19:46--> 00:19:48

the Muslim who comes from another country,

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

you should not be satisfied to speak with your own people and talk your own language now. You must get president the language of the people where you have come to

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

so that you may greet them, and interact with them, and talk to them and facilitate them. Why? Because communication is the key to the hearts of the human beings. If you want people to love you, to trust you to feel for you to accept you, you must learn that language.

00:20:19--> 00:20:27

The messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, always he appointed someone to go learn the language of such and such people, so we may know them.

00:20:32--> 00:20:34

The Muslims have convincing arguments

00:20:36--> 00:20:41

and propositions to people. convincing argument doesn't mean to yell.

00:20:42--> 00:21:19

Does it mean to get angry? It doesn't mean you want to win an argument to debate. No, it means that you listen to what people say, and you digest it. And after that, you say, Okay, that sounds interesting. But let me give you this proposition. So you listen to them and you respect them. But you tell them listen to what Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Look to what our prophets of Allah lives to them said, think about this. What do you think about that? Okay, listen, if we don't agree today, alright, good. Have something to drink. Maybe I'll see you tomorrow, come back, we'll talk another time. And leave them.

00:21:20--> 00:21:33

Give them good arguments. Study what it is they're saying to you. Do not dismiss it. Don't only listen, because you want to wait for them to end and then you want to talk No, listen carefully to what they say.

00:21:34--> 00:21:36

And if you don't understand it fully,

00:21:37--> 00:21:53

don't try to be clever. Just say to them, I don't completely understand what you said. And I don't have an answer for you today. But in sha Allah, I will answer you another time. How about we meet here tomorrow or the next day have something to drink? How about you come to my house? Get Let me have your number.

00:21:57--> 00:22:07

The Muslims should be prepared for leadership. You should not work with the kuffaar for years and years and years, as a subordinate to them.

00:22:09--> 00:22:17

Why? Why should the Muslim be subordinate to the kuffar in any level? Whether in the industry, whether in the school?

00:22:18--> 00:22:57

Why should you be subordinate to them for years and years? No, you have to learn whatever skill it is, in whatever field you are, and you become the leader, set up your own business, become the foreman, become the boss, become the president become the chairman become the leader. Even in your neighborhood. You become the one who initiate the programs to clean the neighborhood. You keep the neighborhood safe. Let them look to you for the problems. Let everyone in your neighborhood. non Muslims come see Abdallah, you got a problem? You hungry? Somebody in the neighborhood is creating problems. Go see Abdullah he will handle it.

00:22:59--> 00:23:00

The Muslim must be a leader.

00:23:02--> 00:23:07

He must be the man that when people have problems, they come to him to resolve that problem.

00:23:08--> 00:23:20

You go to your neighbor and you tell them my name is Abdullah. My name is Mohammed My name is Ahmed. My wife is there. I'm your neighbor. If you have any problems at all, come and see me. I will take care of it for you in sha Allah.

00:23:21--> 00:23:31

And you go see all of your neighbors like that. They will all say, Did you get a visit from this guy? Who appointed him? He told us he can handle all the problems in the neighborhood.

00:23:33--> 00:23:38

Yes, we can handle all the problems in sha Allah. Because the kuffaar

00:23:40--> 00:23:45

they accepted Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam to come to Medina to come to yesterday.

00:23:46--> 00:24:02

And it was acceptable for them to call Yathrib Medina to Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, why not because they were willing to accept his message, not because they were prepared to accept Islam, but because they heard of his ability to resolve problems.

00:24:04--> 00:24:18

They knew that he was a problem solver. And they were on the verge of civil war. So they agreed, yes, go and get Mohamed Salah is him and bring him to our city, and he will be for us as an arbitrator.

00:24:19--> 00:24:28

When they heard the Quran, and they saw his behavior, they accepted him as the leader of the city. And so Allah subhanaw taala guided him to that position.

00:24:29--> 00:24:37

Or Muslims in the city where you are, through your character. If you become the arbitrators, you become the leaders and you are respectful that people will bring the problems to you.

00:24:38--> 00:24:43

You don't have to run for office. Just you have to polish your behavior.

00:24:44--> 00:24:53

The Muslim must have wide knowledge about where he or she is at. If you live in Australia, know everything about Australia.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

Well, its major cities. What's its industry? What's his problems? What's his end?

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

For structure, who eyes leaders? What is his history? What's its culture, you must know everything about it. Why not because you want to swallow the culture or follow the culture.

00:25:10--> 00:25:47

But when you know about people, you can be sensitive to their problems. You cannot come to this country as an Arab. And all you care about is the Arabs. You cannot come to this country as an Asian from indo Pak continent, all you care about is your culture. You cannot come to this country from somewhere else, and you form your own little enclave. And that's all you care about. Why do you think somebody should follow you because you immigrated here and all you care about is yourself? No. The Muslim must be white and his conduct think Muslims, this country is very close to Indonesia, a country that the Muslims went to the Arabs, they went there, and what's happened?

00:25:48--> 00:26:00

They learned their language. They did business with them, they married their women, they help them with their problems, they will come to them and visit with them. And they taught them the religion. And now what is what is Indonesia today?

00:26:01--> 00:26:08

It is the largest Muslim country in the world. And no army ever went there. From what the behavior of the muslims

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

or muslims, the character of the Muslim is the most important part of the Muslim. And we have to keep this in our minds. The inside of the Muslim is his image and his knowledge, but the outside it is his character that the world will see Wakulla curly hair that was stuffed with Allah do you want to call?

00:26:37--> 00:26:37

hamdu Lillahi

00:26:40--> 00:26:43

wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayed Mustafa

00:26:44--> 00:26:51

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was heavy he was Was he woman wallet. Wow.

00:26:53--> 00:26:55

They are Muslim brothers and sisters. I want to say something to you.

00:26:57--> 00:27:11

The messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the most stingy of those that mentioned me or those who do not say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when they mentioned me.

00:27:13--> 00:27:21

Allah subhanho wa taala. He said in the Quran, in Allah wa Mala Iike to who you said Luna Allah NaVi.

00:27:22--> 00:27:30

Yeah, you will Adina Ave he's given you the order. Yeah, you Halloween Amanu Sallu Allah he was suddenly more Taslima.

00:27:32--> 00:27:39

Allahumma Salli ala so he didn't want to you know have even a Muhammad Rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are Muslims do not be stingy.

00:27:41--> 00:27:48

When the name Muhammad comes, and we're talking about the Prophet of Allah Subhan Allah to Allah rasool Allah say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:27:50--> 00:28:08

Because Allah and His angel said, Who are we? We have to say, when anyone mentions Muhammad, Mustafa Nabi Allah rasool Allah say, let your children hear you say and say it openly and clearly sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:28:11--> 00:28:12

are Muslims.

00:28:14--> 00:28:20

Part of the character of the Muslim is the Aqeedah sticking to the issues of Akita what is the leader?

00:28:21--> 00:28:25

Understanding what is your relationship with Allah subhanahu wata Isla

00:28:27--> 00:28:28

understanding the Tao heyde

00:28:31--> 00:28:39

Understanding the rights of Allah subhanaw taala over his creatures, what is it that distinguishes us from the kuffaar

00:28:41--> 00:28:43

it is not just the words.

00:28:44--> 00:29:01

It is also the ideas which we have concerning Allah subhanho wa Taala that we don't say anything about Allah other than what Allah has said about himself or what we have received through authentic hadith from Rasul Allah Salah is him about Allah

00:29:04--> 00:29:32

the character of the Muslim also includes adapting the authentic sunnah of Rasulullah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loving the Sunnah, not just accepting it but loving it. This is two different things. You tell somebody this is the son of the Prophet SAW seminar man says I know that this means I accept that. That means he say I hear but I don't obey.

00:29:33--> 00:29:47

Now, loving the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam said, None of you can become a true believer until I become dearer to him than his father and his son and the whole of mankind.

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in the Quran forever Bukola you had your hotkey muka female shujaa Raveena, whom from Mala Ji do

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

Hi, Fi unfussy him halogen net Miko right where you suddenly motor Selena.

00:30:08--> 00:30:22

Allah swears he says Follow our book, follow our Booker. Allah swears, I swear or Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam by your Lord. They can never become true believers

00:30:23--> 00:30:24


00:30:25--> 00:30:30

they make you, Hakim, a judge and an arbitrator

00:30:32--> 00:30:33

between them

00:30:36--> 00:30:37

for all of their affairs

00:30:39--> 00:30:49

and they do not find inside themselves, no reservation, no hesitation to follow your orders, but they accept them completely.

00:30:50--> 00:31:02

So when we hear a sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we prefer that over our desires. He said, None of you can become a true believer until

00:31:05--> 00:31:11

they give up their own ideas and their own inclinations for what I have brought.

00:31:14--> 00:31:17

So it is not Yes, I understand but there is no way that I can.

00:31:19--> 00:31:20

There is no however.

00:31:21--> 00:31:36

You heard some our God you heard the Sunnah. You follow the Sunnah. We cannot follow every sunnah because we don't know every Sunday, but what we do manage data as much as you can.

00:31:37--> 00:31:47

And if you do not follow a sunnah you should feel ashamed of that and not try to give some excuses about it. So that you you hand this weakness over to your children.

00:31:48--> 00:32:02

Oh, I don't do this because of that. I have this excuse and this excuse and that and some scholar told me I didn't have to what you're doing. You're giving to your sons and your daughters a fatwa of why they also should disobey the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:32:05--> 00:32:10

all Muslims, part of the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu Islam includes

00:32:12--> 00:32:17

adapting the dress of the Muslims. Now this doesn't mean you have to wear a turban

00:32:19--> 00:32:21

it doesn't mean you have to wear coffee.

00:32:22--> 00:32:33

Doesn't mean you have to dress with a Saudi. So no, but it means you should distinguish some part of your dress so that you are known as a Muslim.

00:32:34--> 00:32:51

Something that someone looks at you should know that you are a Muslim and distinguish you from the kuffaar. So you see how the kuffar how they dress, you should dress somewhere distinct from them. If you think you have to wear a suit and tie do that.

00:32:52--> 00:32:58

But if you wear a suit and tie and no coffee and no beard, but to distinguish you from the Katherine's

00:33:00--> 00:33:01

you wear a suit and tie put on a goofy

00:33:05--> 00:33:26

you must wear something this thing was you. Of course your character is the best distinction. But in general, when we look out and see some crowd of people, there should be something about the Muslim that distinguishes him the prophets Allah and said the believer is the one that when you see him, he reminds you of Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:33:27--> 00:33:37

He doesn't remind you of the last 100 Watts Allah in His Syrah. No, he reminds you of Allah subhanaw taala by his character and how looking at him

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

or her.

00:33:41--> 00:33:53

We follow the Sunnah of the Prophet so awesome in the arrangement of our home, our home should not be like the home of the kafirs. So you should not look in the Home and Garden magazine and try to make your house look like that.

00:33:56--> 00:34:08

Know think to yourself, build your home around the Salah, make your home around the Salah, and around the comfort of your family which means what

00:34:09--> 00:34:26

make a place for the women so that the men do not have to come through the place of the women and the women can be safe and they can be comfortable. You don't have your house set up like the kafirs so the women and the men come to the same door they all sit down to eat together no this is the kuffaar way.

00:34:28--> 00:34:31

Arrange your home according to the Sunnah of the prophets a lot of them

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

get rid of the excess make it simple.

00:34:40--> 00:34:42

The min of your speech

00:34:44--> 00:34:51

the Prophet sallallahu sallam said to the AMO time, what chakra was set um, man out of the womb at lamb tarrif

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

give food invite and go take the invitation. Invite and answer the invitation

00:35:00--> 00:35:15

Spread food, Spread goodness and give good Greetings to everybody that you meet. Okay? We don't say to the most, the kaffir Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. Now, we don't say that to the kaffir or the Kapha says to us that I'm Aleykum or they consider

00:35:18--> 00:35:19

or you can say to him

00:35:21--> 00:35:33

was Salam o Allah manager of ad Huda, please be upon those who follow the guidance. Allah subhanaw taala says, and so the greeting with what? One that is equal or one that is better.

00:35:36--> 00:35:39

So, for Kapha he says to you, salam alaikum, what you say what?

00:35:41--> 00:35:43

You can say why they come.

00:35:44--> 00:35:46

But he said to you, please,

00:35:47--> 00:35:49

you cannot say to him peace.

00:35:52--> 00:35:57

Peace is not a sacred word that is only reserved for Muslims. There's nothing in the Hadith about that.

00:35:58--> 00:36:01

Peace is a word of security,

00:36:02--> 00:36:10

safety, honesty, clear intention, somebody said to you peace, you cannot say peace. You say him, well, they come.

00:36:12--> 00:36:17

No, we give the special greetings specific reading for the Muslims.

00:36:18--> 00:36:31

The Prophet saw a lot of time said As salam wa ala Manitoba, alHuda. Peace be upon those who follow the guidance. So they hear you say back to the keys.

00:36:32--> 00:36:37

This is Adam, this good manners. You see the wisdom of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:36:40--> 00:36:49

the greetings and the cultural etiquettes you should not be impressed by the civilization that you live in. Do not show them that you are impressed by them.

00:36:51--> 00:37:15

walking around downtown looking at their buildings, going to their museums, standing around with them, going to their parties, setting your tables like them, wanting to dress like them, designing your house like them. And feeling in front of them supporting it cowed down, and also wanting to be like them happy when you see them.

00:37:16--> 00:37:28

Allah subhanaw taala said the believers are those who are strong against the kuffar not arrogant but firm. While Ruhama Shana home, we have reversed it.

00:37:29--> 00:37:33

We are strong against our Muslim brothers and towards the kuffaar. We

00:37:36--> 00:37:36


00:37:39--> 00:37:57

we don't take them as friends. What does it mean? Friends, somebody say I have a non Muslim friend, how is your friend? Friend means he's intimate to you. You can rely upon him. You can trust him. No, we cannot rely upon them. We can't trust him. Except in general things. I have a neighbor.

00:37:59--> 00:38:12

Sometime he will cut my grass sometime he will watch my house. I'm someplace on vacation. He's my neighbor, he tells me if you leave me the key, I'll make sure the alarm is set. I'll make sure such and such I'll keep this I'll do that that's different.

00:38:13--> 00:38:15

But we don't take them as friends and intimates

00:38:16--> 00:38:19

relying upon them. taking advice from them,

00:38:20--> 00:38:45

wanting to be with them, trusting them marrying them. No, we don't have that kind of relationship with them. Allah subhanaw taala says are you believe do not take the Jews and the Christians as friends and protectors, men dune Allah and another place he says when doing it many, they are friends and protectors only of each other. Your friends are none other than Allah and His messenger and the believers.

00:38:49--> 00:39:00

We do not rely upon the institutions and the services or Muslims. You send your wives to the hospitals. You send your wives to the clinics. And the kuffaar is examining them

00:39:02--> 00:39:03

and you don't care.

00:39:05--> 00:39:10

You tell your wife don't say salaam to the brother. You're not supposed to say salaam to the brother.

00:39:11--> 00:39:14

But she gets in a taxi. She arrived with the kuffaar

00:39:15--> 00:39:21

She goes to the hospital the doctor says oh, okay, Mrs. Ibrahim, I take off your clothes. I'll be right there.

00:39:24--> 00:39:25

You don't mind?

00:39:27--> 00:39:30

No, we need to have our own clinics.

00:39:31--> 00:39:33

We need to have our own schools.

00:39:34--> 00:39:44

We need to have our own institutions. So we do not have to rely upon the institutions, the schools and the clinics of the kuffar who will violate us and disrespect us.

00:39:45--> 00:39:51

All of that cause for consolidating our own economics and trusting each other or Muslims.

00:39:53--> 00:39:56

We should not participate in their political systems.

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

Yes, if the Imam of the army

00:40:00--> 00:40:19

You have Sydney, Australia of Sydney, Australia, the leader of the Muslims in Australia said, Everyone go out and get a voter's registration card, because we will use this as some kind of strength. We will do it. We will do it. But we're not running for office. We're not trying to be the mayor of Sydney.

00:40:20--> 00:40:33

We don't want to be the MP. We don't want to join the MP circles. We don't want to join them. No, because the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam, he did not join them in their circles and he did not bring them in his circles. Never.

00:40:35--> 00:40:46

And neither did Abu Bakr Siddiq on top and now that I found her I think he thought it and these are our examples. We deal with him on our terms, not on their terms.

00:40:48--> 00:40:57

Or Muslims. We do not collaborate with them in religious matters, this whole idea of interfaith, there is no such thing.

00:40:58--> 00:41:09

No such thing in Medina and Allah and Islam. The Deen in front of Allah is Islam, there is no interface. We can sit with them and talk with them.

00:41:11--> 00:41:17

Compare, tell them this is what Allah subhanaw taala said, this was the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam said,

00:41:18--> 00:41:25

and we can give them Naseeha listen to them, but we don't join their faith and ours like it's a sandwich.

00:41:27--> 00:41:50

A little bit of this and a little bit of that the good from our religion and a good from your religion, a little bit of Judaism, a little bit Islam, a little bit of this, a little bit of mushrik, a little bit of Buddhism, a little bit of that and then put it all together into what it did at yen one world faith as some Muslims, they have went astray deviant and they are joining with the kuffar to make one world faith.

00:41:52--> 00:42:02

Know Allah subhanho wa Taala says, who will love the art of Salah Sula, who did her death what Dina Huck the you the hitter who added Dini Cooley well okay they have cafiero

00:42:04--> 00:42:15

It is He Allah who sent His messenger Mohammed Salah never sit down with the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah. What do you have and Islam the Akita

00:42:16--> 00:42:29

the you the hara, who Allah Dini coolly in order that it may do what it may dominate and prevail, prevail and conquer of all of the gains, even though the kuffaar will hate it. How you will do this.

00:42:30--> 00:42:43

If you are melting Islam down and mixing it up with them, they will never respect you. And Allah subhanaw taala told us, they will never be satisfied with to you with you, even if you accept their religion.

00:42:45--> 00:42:49

If you abandon your religion and join them, still they will disrespect you.

00:42:50--> 00:42:56

So Muslims don't do it. All of this is part of our character. This is part of the distinction of our religion.

00:42:57--> 00:43:18

Our good manners is what we need to show to the people. Be good citizens. Be peace loving people, be productive people, progressive people compete with them and everything. The good of Australia, take it, use it, exemplify it, mix it with Islam, Islam takes the good of everything and everybody

00:43:20--> 00:43:24

but we don't compromise our Islam for nothing and no one

00:43:27--> 00:43:28

this is our character.

00:43:29--> 00:43:31

This the distinction of our deen

00:43:32--> 00:43:43

are Muslims. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well, my attack will motorists or faculty oh, woman her command, Fanta who?

00:43:44--> 00:43:48

So take what the prophets of Allah has given to you.

00:43:50--> 00:44:40

And leave alone that which he has forbidden you are Muslims. Keep these messages in your mind. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said they can be so nutty was sunnah to the Holy Father. Rashi de nada Yin. What the ILA have been aware of God upon you is the following of my sunnah. And the Sunnah of the whole of Russia did the Yin, hold on to them with the molars of your teeth, not the front teeth that can be pulled out, but the back teeth, hold on to them. Don't give up. Hold on to that and follow the Sunnah. What does that mean for us? Following the Sunnah of the first generation following the Sunnah of the second generation, following the Sunnah of the third generation, the

00:44:40--> 00:44:50

companions of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, the Tabea, 18 and 18 hold on to them. Those are examples. This is where the proof of our character

00:44:52--> 00:44:58

all Muslims, keep these points in mind. This is my advice for you and advice for myself either the law

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

your hammock Allah

00:45:03--> 00:45:08

Roberta attina for dunya has nothing more she'll ask it it has since done walking in Durban now

00:46:04--> 00:46:05

Aki Musala?

00:46:22--> 00:46:24

What is the purpose of life of life?

00:46:29--> 00:46:34

Why is it that when we ask the simple question,

00:46:35--> 00:46:37

what is the purpose of our lives?

00:46:39--> 00:46:42

Why do we get so many different answers?

00:46:45--> 00:46:49

Is because people haven't really thought about it.

00:46:51--> 00:46:52

It's too frightening.

00:46:55--> 00:47:08

Not the question itself is frightening. But what's frightening is that if we answer it, clearly, it may change our lives. indelibly and we are afraid of change.

00:47:12--> 00:47:19

And now we have discovered that every part of creation that has been discovered is inside of a drop of water.

00:47:20--> 00:47:28

Well, the Quran already said that was 1500 years ago, that we created everything in every single thing from water. The Quran said that.

00:47:32--> 00:47:34

We want to talk this evening about

00:47:36--> 00:47:37

Jesus the son of Mary

00:47:39--> 00:47:41

and his phenomenal birth.

00:47:45--> 00:47:46

A verse

00:47:47--> 00:47:52

that very few human beings, whether Muslims or Christians have any argument about

00:47:54--> 00:48:06

we believe, and our Quran makes it clear for us and confirms for us that Jesus Christ in fact, he was born without the intervention of sperm.

00:48:09--> 00:48:15

That his mother Mary, that bless it woman, she became pregnant by the word of God.

00:48:18--> 00:48:20

No man touched up.

00:48:25--> 00:48:26

eight murders

00:48:28--> 00:48:31

or homicides are committed every 19 minutes.

00:48:34--> 00:48:38

And two rapes are committed every seven minutes.

00:48:40--> 00:48:42

And there are three robberies

00:48:44--> 00:48:45

every 59 seconds

00:48:48--> 00:49:01

there are 257,000 children that are legally or illegally aborted. That is 257,000 children are killed in the womb

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

by license

00:49:07--> 00:49:08

21 million children

00:49:10--> 00:49:15

are born every year out of wedlock, who do not know their mothers and fathers

00:49:18--> 00:49:20

or who do not know whom they have fathered by

00:49:22--> 00:49:42

2.8 million suicides every year of human beings who find no reason to live with these kinds of social problems inside of their own boundaries inside of their own governments in their own institutions. How can they

00:49:43--> 00:49:44

bring peace to the world?

00:49:46--> 00:49:48

It doesn't make sense.

00:49:52--> 00:49:53

Oh Muslims.

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

Allah subhanaw taala reminds you and me that whatever

00:50:00--> 00:50:08

Good happens. It is from Allah subhanaw taala. And if something else happens, this is from our own hands.

00:50:11--> 00:50:19

Allah subhanho wa Taala he has ordered you and I to enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong.

00:50:21--> 00:50:38

And when we cease to do that we don't enjoy the right. We don't enjoy enjoined, we don't enjoy on the right, we don't forbid the wrong, did Allah subhanho wa Taala promise that he will visit us a calamity from himself.

00:50:39--> 00:50:40

So that

00:50:44--> 00:50:52

when the calamity happens, or you are punished, and the receiver comes upon you and you call upon Allah, He will not answer.

00:50:55--> 00:50:57

What do the Muslims of today expect?

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

The character of the Muslim is the most important part of the Muslim,

00:51:07--> 00:51:13

not what he or she says, not only what he or she waves,

00:51:15--> 00:51:28

not where they come from, or who their mother or father is, or grandfather, not the country they live in, or for that matter, if they live next to the Kaaba is not important at all.

00:51:29--> 00:51:32

It is the character because the character is the actual fruit.

00:51:36--> 00:51:48

And we can remember, on the occasion, when the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam invited his companions to make a sacrifice in the way of Allah subhana wa Tada

00:51:49--> 00:51:51

and Amara know what Bob

00:51:54--> 00:51:55

he brought half of his wealth

00:51:58--> 00:52:00

and he considered this to have been

00:52:01--> 00:52:02

a major sacrifice.

00:52:04--> 00:52:05

And he was very proud of that.

00:52:08--> 00:52:12

But when Abu Bakr dela on came Abu Bakr,

00:52:14--> 00:52:15

he brought all of his wealth.

00:52:18--> 00:52:21

And when the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam asked Abu Bakr,

00:52:23--> 00:52:30

what he had left for his family, what was the response of Abu Bakr Rotella one? He said, Allahu Allah, so Allah,

00:52:31--> 00:52:32

Allah and His Messenger salah.

00:52:34--> 00:52:40

And it was by the suggestion of the order of the prophets of Allah Sam that Abu Bakr took back some of his wealth for his family.

00:52:43--> 00:52:45

And this is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:52:46--> 00:52:47


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

that there was no one from among the Muslims,

00:52:53--> 00:52:58

who displayed his logic to Allah, His Messenger symbolism similar to that of Abu Bakr.

00:53:02--> 00:53:11

So Allah subhanaw taala. He said, Yes, definitely, who, who is better, who was more excellent

00:53:12--> 00:53:16

than the one that calls towards the loss of $100, let's just call him

00:53:17--> 00:53:19

that just shouting, not just arguing.

00:53:21--> 00:53:30

While I'm in Saudi, but they are acting upon what they are calling, they are setting a precedent for what they are calling to.

00:53:32--> 00:53:41

They have established a behavior or paradigm and example to what they are calling to. And they openly

00:53:42--> 00:53:45

say, announce, I am Muslim.

00:53:49--> 00:53:59

Where oceans and rivers meet, does the ocean take over the river? It doesn't, although the ocean might be five times six times, eight times 10 times larger than a river.

00:54:01--> 00:54:03

And, you know, if you took two bodies of water,

00:54:04--> 00:54:06

and you put a funnel in between them,

00:54:07--> 00:54:10

what would happen, the larger body would have solved the smaller body with today.

00:54:12--> 00:54:25

But in the case of the ocean, in the river, it doesn't happen because Allah said he put up as luck. So they do not overcome each other. And one of our Jacques Cousteau who passed away now he was a marine biologist.

00:54:26--> 00:54:27

He was able to film

00:54:28--> 00:54:38

under the ocean where the rivers meet the ocean. And the river meets the ocean and the ocean needs to river and they go back.

00:54:39--> 00:54:50

They meet and they go back. So therefore the rivers return back to itself and the ocean returns back to itself. They do not overcome each other. How did the Prophet know that?

00:54:54--> 00:54:59

Islam has five fundamental pillars, the first of which is to bear witness it

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

There's nothing to be worshipped except Almighty God, consistent with

00:55:05--> 00:55:09

the first commandment given to Moses, consistent with

00:55:10--> 00:55:20

the first commandment that Jesus Christ also said, is the greatest of the commandments. Here you Israel, the LORD thy God is one. Absolutely one, not the number one.

00:55:22--> 00:55:25

Not the number one that could be divided into 123.

00:55:27--> 00:55:29

Not the number one that could be multiplied.

00:55:32--> 00:55:53

But absolutely one, having no one besides, no other God decides. Here you are Israel, the LORD thy God is one that shall love the Lord thy God with all that heart and all that mind and all that soul, and thou shalt not worship anyone except the Lord that God, no bounds any graven images and the heavens on Earth or the sea below.

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

Such said Moses, and Satsang confirm Jesus Christ and such says the Quran.

00:56:02--> 00:56:07

This is what we bear witness. And this is the first pillar of Islam and the most important.

00:56:11--> 00:56:22

If war erupts in Iraq, more than 3000 missiles will be rained upon Iraq in the course of 66 hours, and more than a half a million people will be killed.

00:56:23--> 00:56:24

Can you tell me

00:56:26--> 00:56:28

how the lives of a half a million people

00:56:31--> 00:56:41

are equal to a leader Saddam Hussein if America was able to go into South America and pull out what was the guy's name general,

00:56:43--> 00:56:44


00:56:46--> 00:56:50

a man who was selling drugs, but Noriega, but then Noriega flicked on them.

00:56:51--> 00:57:03

So they went in and took this man from his country, brought them out and put them in jail for life in their country. So why don't just go into Iraq and pull out Saddam? No, they need to go into Iraq.

00:57:04--> 00:57:24

Why? Because you will find that in a matter of six months after the war, the prices in the oil will go down. And as we speak, right now, there are 27 mega companies, mega companies who are bidding for contracts for the reconstruction of Iraq, what does have to do with Saddam Hussein, and democracy.

00:57:28--> 00:57:28

If a man

00:57:30--> 00:57:32

had to get pregnant and have a baby, he would die.

00:57:35--> 00:57:40

And then on top of that, if he had to look forward to taking care of that child for the next

00:57:42--> 00:57:47

1015 20 years, and sometimes a mother, she's taking care of a grown child.

00:57:49--> 00:57:51

Men who still live with their mothers,

00:57:53--> 00:57:54

you couldn't do it.

00:57:56--> 00:57:57

And still, she's taking care of herself.

00:57:58--> 00:58:00

And she's taking care of her husband.

00:58:01--> 00:58:03

May Allah subhanaw taala reward those sisters?

00:58:04--> 00:58:06

And may Allah cover their faults?

00:58:07--> 00:58:20

May Allah cause the husbands and brothers and sons to appreciate them, because they are the goodly trees that bear the goodly fruit, Allah subhanahu wa darland mentioned in the Quran.

00:58:23--> 00:58:38

The messenger of allah sallallahu SNAM, he made brotherhood, very sacred, very important is the whole basis of the Muslim society brotherhood. And when there is no brotherhood, believe it, there is no substance among the Muslims.

00:58:40--> 00:58:41

No substance.

00:58:44--> 00:58:50

The first principle and characteristics of Tao is that the die has to have knowledge.

00:58:53--> 00:58:55

Not just ambition.

00:58:56--> 00:59:23

Not just emotional drive, and not just a reaction to some insult that somebody has said, and not just a feeling to want to give dower because you know, it's an obligation. All those things are good, and it's all necessary. But without knowledge, what are you gonna do, but always show your composure and your willingness to talk to anybody? Because why?

00:59:25--> 00:59:36

You put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala from the very beginning, the Messenger of Allah is awesome. He didn't have all the assets, but he put his trust upon Allah. Allah says to him, for Allah in control

00:59:37--> 00:59:38


00:59:57--> 00:59:58


01:00:00--> 01:00:00

The end of

01:00:08--> 01:00:09
