How did he address the rights of women? What are five ways that we can connect with the Quran? In this session, we discuss the Prophet’s (S) first and only performance of Hajj, the internal and external actions that results in its acceptance, and the foundational lessons we can take from the final sermon he delivered to the believers.

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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My dear brothers and sisters, rubbish Radley soldering westerly Emery. Well Hello Dr. melissani Korea my bad I prayed to Allah subhana wa tada to ease the speech on me, and to ease the understanding on you, and to ease the application of what is being said and what is being heard to all of us. I mean, that'll be I mean, brothers and sisters, nsmb Malik, one of the closest companions to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Model A to A hidden cannot have been a limited Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam I have not never seen anyone in my entire life, more merciful and kinder to children more than the Prophet sallallahu

00:00:43--> 00:01:21

alayhi wasallam. And one of the people has said, you know, to show the example of the product as a lump in the way he deals with children. It's as if the whole world stops in how he gives them the full attention really speaks to them. I'll give an example. There is a wonderful girl by the name of Emma, also known as M Khalid. She narrates the story to us as she got older to show you how that story impacted her so much so that she's telling others the greatness of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam ready for the story. Bismillah she said, I came with my father one day to see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I was wearing a yellow dress. So the prophet SAW a lot of

00:01:21--> 00:01:58

accidents, saw the dress and he said center center, beautiful, beautiful and he commented the beauty of her dress, Allahu Akbar, and one time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed for her. And he told her May Allah allow you to wear this dress until it wears out. Then you buy a new dress until you wear it until it wears out. And may you buy a new dress until it wears out. And you buy a new one. He prayed for her to have a long life. And indeed she did. Allahu Akbar. And one time that wonderful lady one more time I'm hired notice an older lady, she says, when she was younger, and she came with her father to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam she was playing on the back of the

00:01:58--> 00:02:40

prophet SAW Salem. So her father got angry at her and he told her to back off to get down. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told her father the hot lever lever alayhi salatu was Salam. Not just that one time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to pray one of the night prayers in the masjid I shot Salah, and he grabbed one of his grandchildren's It was either al Hudson or al Husayn. So when he went to the masjid to pray, he placed his grandchild next to him and began Allahu Akbar. And in the prayer who tells us the story, one of the people that was praying in that congregation behind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, during one of the positions and specifically in

00:02:40--> 00:03:23

prostration, and such that the prophet SAW Selim took such a long time that the narrator said, I lifted my head to see what's going on why he took so long in frustration, and I saw his grandson riding on the back of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Then I went back to my frustration, after the Salah has ended, the people went to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Yes, so Allah, what happened to you? We were so worried we were so concerned that something happened to you or maybe you received revelation, the prophet said Salaam Salaam, none of that happened. Actually, what happened is that Ebony had that my grandson was riding over my back. And I did not want to interrupt his play. I want

00:03:23--> 00:04:01

him to have enough game time and so on. He didn't say I don't I did not want him to fall. He did not say I did not want him to cry. He said, I want them to enjoy his time. Allahu Akbar. And the prophet SAW said he knows exactly what he's doing. And the lesson is sending to the whole ohmmeter the whole community. May Allah bless us and protect us all. I mean, terrible. I mean, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, There are times when I go to Salah, and I have the intention to prolong my prayer, but then I hear the crying of a baby. So I cut my prayer short I haste in my Salah. Why? Because I know how much pain the crying of the baby causes the mother Allahu Akbar, this

00:04:01--> 00:04:41

is the mercy as to the child and to the mother. May Allah protect us. I mean, there'll be a limit and grant us righteous children. Can you imagine if this was the love of the prophets, I sent him to the children and his love was immense and his mercy was immense. How would it be if he had his own baby child at this point in his life, right, especially later on in his life, and indeed brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala bless the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam in the eighth year after immigration with a baby boy from Marielle Katya, he said, and he's celebrating he was happy. He said tonight Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed me with a baby boy, and I named my baby boy, the

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

same name of my father, my great grandfather Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam. So Ibrahim the son of the prophets are seldom with someone the Prophet was so happy with his presence to give you a glimpse of that love. One time the prophets are silent. FYI, he used to have his son Ibrahim, be nervous.

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

And taken care of in the suburbs of Medina, which is quite a distance from where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam spends much of his time around the masjid, answering questions, so on and so forth. So ns mediamatic says he would miss his son so much that he would leave everything and go all the way to the suburbs just to hug his son, kiss his son, and then come all the way back. Can you imagine that? Like a student that goes abroad to a boarding school, so the father travels all the way there just to embrace that child, tell them that he loves him and then he comes back. May Allah grant tonight to be righteous parents, I mean, our element to our children Rasulullah sallallahu

00:05:37--> 00:06:17

wasallam got to see his son growing right before his eyes. Until Ibrahim, may Allah be pleased by him and alayhis salaam reached the age of approximately one and a half years old. That was in the 10th year after immigration. And that's the age which many of you perhaps know how cute that moment is, when that child starts saying some words that are kind of broken. So funny, would love to hear it repeatedly back and back and back. This is the age where the child has emotions can run to the door or dad is back, mom is back alone. And the process is handled without a doubt, enjoyed the upbringing of that beautiful age. However, brothers and sisters at that age and in the 10th, year

00:06:17--> 00:06:57

after immigration, Ibrahim the son of the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam start to get sick, and he became so sick. The prophet SAW Selim rushed to the house wherever he was, and he carried Ibrahim looking at him sick and exhausted and in weakness, and the prophet SAW Selim got so emotional, he started to cry Singh Ibrahim in that situation. And then he explained to the Abdullah Abdullah bin alpha companion next to him that these tears are tears of mercy because Abdullah had been alpha was a bit surprised that the person was being very emotional, because they thought they also allow you to cry like you know, you're, you're, you're expressing their emotions, even though

00:06:57--> 00:07:38

you know everything happens for a reason. Whatever happens to the believer is good for them. Then the Prophet teaches the whole world an important concept, that yes, we can cry. But this does not negate and does not mean that I'm not happy with Allah's decree. So you can cry yet you're completely content with what Allah has decreed for you may Allah allow you to have tears of mercy, while we are pleased with Allah's decree. So Abraham continued to be sick, while the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is holding him. And his health of Ibrahim continued to get worse and worse. And he said, numatic said, I was there. When Abraham took his last breath, while the prophet

00:07:38--> 00:08:23

SAW Selim was holding him. And Abraham passed away. And the profit center cried and cried and cried. And he said, if it wasn't, and I'm summarizing it, and if it wasn't for the promise of Allah, that they're believing family will be reunited in the afterlife. If it wasn't for that, I would have been a lot more sad. I would have grieved a lot more than he said, Indeed, the eye cries, and the heart is sad. And we are so sad for the departure of Ibrahim and look what he says. And I will never say anything that angers Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the true surrender to Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you're truly patient when you face a hardship, then know that whatever the story and event you're

00:08:23--> 00:09:04

going through, is good for you. These are not my words, but the words of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. I know some people went through such tragedies of all types. May Allah grant your patience and May Allah Subhana Allah reward you for what you're going through the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, look what he says. He says, the greater the trial, the greater the reward. And he said, Whoever is pleased with what Allah has decreed, then Allah will be pleased by them. Allah will honor them, Allah will grant them the best of life and afterlife. And whoever is displeased by Allah decree is angry. Why did Allah do this and complain about Allah than Allah anger? opia will be upon

00:09:04--> 00:09:49

that person. May Allah protect us from Allah anger we pray to Allah to protect us from his anger. We pray to Allah to shower us with His pleasure and mercy me noblemen brothers and sisters and in that same year, in the 10th, year after immigration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam makes the intention to perform one of the five pillars of Islam after Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the verse where he says are all the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim when Illa Allah Nancy hate Julie Beatty many stop or Elaine sebelah and it's due upon the people to go to the house of Allah, the cab and perform the pilgrimage the Hajj to those who are capable to those

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

who are able to spend the money, have the health, so on and so forth. And when this announcement was made that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has made the intention to perform Hajj

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

In that 10th year after immigration, people start coming from all over Arabia to join the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and perform Hajj just like how he is doing it. Brothers and sisters just a moment for all of us here. We should do our absolute best to perform Hajj as soon as we possibly can, as soon as we possibly can. Do you and I not sometimes or many people save money to go buy a house to people not try to save money to go buy a car? Why not try to also start saving money to perform hajj, a pillar of Islam a life changing experience? May Allah granted to all of us, I mean, terrible I mean, with that being said, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is heading

00:10:40--> 00:11:23

towards Hajj, look to what he says. He says yeah, and you handed us all people who do unlimited seeker come take from me, learn from me the rituals of Hajj, learn from me what I say what I do and how I behave. Then he says for in Nila Aditi for I do not know now Lila how Juba army had perhaps I may not perform Hajj after this year once again. So this is the first Hajj of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a new inshallah you'll benefit so much from the following as well. He gives us the equation in which if you perform correctly alone will reward you for your Hajj. And you can use that for any act of worship. How does it work as follows?

00:11:23--> 00:12:08

Are you with me in sha Allah May Allah bless you. It's the exterior actions, the actions of the tongue and the body, the exterior actions plus the interior actions the actions of the heart, if you do the exterior plus the interior, you will get the reward. For example, the exterior actions such as in the case of Hajj is to throw seven pebbles, which is the Jamaat, for example to spend the day in artifacts, for example, to spend the night in was Delica. and things of that sort circulating seven times around the Kaaba going from Mountain Safa to mountain Mandala. And all these details which you can find in the books of law about touch and be sure his advice from your brother, that

00:12:08--> 00:12:50

when you do learn the exterior of hand you rely on trustworthy people and resources. Because there's so many books out there I've witnessed with my own eyes heard with my own ears, things are very strange, not from the profits of the law setup and may actually not help you and get the absolute best of results. So that is what the exterior actions but that alone does not give you the fruit of any act of worship. You also need the interior actions such as being sincere, that you're performing hajj for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala you're not performing hedge because you want to have this title hedging, so and so not not in such a way where I want it to be on the wedding card just

00:12:50--> 00:13:34

for the sake of showing off May Allah grant you and I sincerity, I mean terrible I mean, so you go to Allah as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in MLM Allah Binya your actions are judged based on the intentions May Allah purify your intention and my intention, immutable alanine, what else of the actions of the heart, being humbled to Allah being humbled to the creator? Allah says in the Quran beautiful is that it when you have them share your own law he fit in? I mean Taco Bell, and the one who honors the symbols of Allah, then that says a lot about your heart. If you honor the circulating around the Kaaba, if you honor the kissing of the Blackstone, if you honor the throwing

00:13:34--> 00:14:06

of the seven pebbles and spending the night and was delicate in that desert, yet many times you may not know what's the real wisdom behind it. But that shows you your submission to Allah. May Allah allow us to be humble to his demands and respect him I mean noble alanine and the humbleness to Allah subhanho wa Taala is part of the acts of the heart. But also there's the humbleness to the creation. Yes, the creation. It was inherited brothers and sisters with a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the following. He said, Yeah, you handed us all people and you will imagine

00:14:08--> 00:14:47

10s of 1000s of people 10s of 1000s this is probably the biggest gathering of the prophets are telling me ever had given his speech. Look what he says. Yeah, you are not Oh, people. Allah in Arabic and warhead. Your Lord is one. What in the back of my head. You all come from the same father Adam alayhis salam. So we all are from the same source. And we all look the same in Islam, when the especially when the men were the two pieces of white clothing. You cannot tell who's the rich and who's the poor. You cannot tell who comes from a famous elite family and who doesn't allow a kebab. Then he says, Allah, Allah, Allah, you being an Arab, it does not make you better than the non Arab.

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

And you being a non Arab does not make you better than the Arab. You being a white man doesn't make you better than the black man. You being a black man doesn't make you better than the white man Allahu Akbar. So the prophets of Allah

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

Ellison says all these measurements of greatness, look how I look like look at my skin color. Look at my family name. Look at my ethnicity, all of that in the sight of Allah are of no value. This does not determine your greatness in any way, shape or form. That's what we fight over today. The Prophet tells you No, that's not what you fight over. That's something incorrect. These bonds of brotherhood should not be based on skin color, and culture. May Allah forgive us and protect us or prophet of Allah then tell us our greatness is based on what he says elaborate taqwa, Allahu Akbar. It's based on your God consciousness based on your piety. It is based on how many of Allah commands

00:15:41--> 00:16:21

Do you follow? So as one of our teachers, they taught us your race to Allah, the race to Allah is a race of hearts, Allahu Akbar. And the only one who knows the winner is Allah Subhana. Wa to Allah. May Allah grant us pure hearts amenable alanine. And just to help you understand this more and more, one time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting next to a companion and a man passed by. So the Prophet said, matter Quran if he had, what do people say about this man? What's his reputation like? So that companion said, Yasser Allah, as of this man that just walked by? If he ever proposes to any girl, the family will be so happy and will accept his proposal the girl would

00:16:21--> 00:17:06

love it from such noble men in the sight of people. If this man ever tries to intercede and hook up someone, people will accept his intercession. And when he speaks, all people listen to the Prophet second remain silent. Then one of the poor people of the Muslims passed by. So the prophets are same as the same companion. What's the reputation of this man? What do people say about this man? Then the companion said, Yasser, Allah asked for this man. If he ever proposes to anyone, he will be rejected. If he ever tries to intercede for someone, it will not be accepted. And if he ever tries to speak and he will not be listened to. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says this, may

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

Allah grant us wisdom and understanding ready? He says that one person, the poor Muslim, is more valuable, and is better than had the whole earth be covered with the first person you complimented? Can you imagine that? So if we have 1 billion people have the first person all that billion, add all the piety, add all the deeds, add all the sincerity of a billion people will not equal to that one man, which he just said about people will not listen to people reject and so on and so forth. Why? Because it's not about looks. It's not about skin color. It's not about background, it's about piety in the heart, which is manifested in our actions. May Allah protect us Mirabile alanine, Okay,

00:17:51--> 00:18:31

brother, can you help us? You know, if I have that sense of racism? If I have the sense of pride that is kicking in, give any advice? Yeah, I'll share with you one. the advice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ready for it inshallah Bismillah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you will not enter Jannah until you believe you got that you will not enter until you believe and you will not believe until you love one another Allahu Akbar. May Allah allow every one of us here to love one another. I mean, so the prophet SAW Selim says, Shall I tell you something? If you do, you will love one another. Please tell us he said f Xu Salama Bina can spread greetings to one

00:18:31--> 00:19:10

another. So go to the presence of Assalamu alaykum greet that person be in communication with that person. This will make you love the other person. This will make you a true believer and this will enter you into gender. May Allah allow me to see you all in gender Mirabella mean with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now with that being said, brothers and sisters, all of these were the actions of the heart, in addition to that, and the last part to share with you is to come on to the hedge and you're trying to work on your luck, your character, being patient, persevere, oh my god, hedge requires patience. Allah says in the Quran, whoever intends to do to go to Hajj, Fela Rafa

00:19:10--> 00:19:49

wonderful suka when he died if you go to hedge and you don't get involved into for example, sexual relations with a spouse, don't get involved into the foul language and sins whether they're minor or major and nor argumentation, no fighting and had you know how much patience when needed for that when I was doing tawaf in the first hedge I performed May Allah accept from all of us. You know, it's really crowded. So someone pushed someone, someone pushed someone, someone pushed someone until I got pushed who started it. I have no idea. But what I know is when I got pushed, I stepped on one person's foot. And that person was angry, allows me witness he was so tall that I had to look all

00:19:49--> 00:20:00

the way up to him like this. And he was fuming and I can't run away. This is crowded. I can't tell people stop, stop, stop. Let me talk to the person. You're going to work on yourself. So I start to speak them in air.

00:20:00--> 00:20:35

You know, and I attended and asked if I'm sorry, he didn't understand the language or so I spoke in English I apologize brother. He didn't get it. He was very angry. You know the brother perhaps can do it with me like this like tawaf me, Allah forgive us big and strong and tall. So I jumped all the way up and kissed his forehead, then smiled. Then he looked at me. And then he smiled, and hamdulillah I was forgiven, but hamdulillah May Allah mend our relationship with our brothers and sisters. I mean, terrible Allah means requires a lot of work. May Allah protect us all and forgive us? May Allah forgive us for our shortcomings. I mean, it'll be alanine. So when you do the exterior

00:20:35--> 00:21:18

actions, plus the interior actions, you get the reward and what's the reward of Hajj, let me share with you two very briefly inshallah. Number one the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, that the reward of Hajj that you will come out of it sinless zero sins on your book of deeds, Allah Akbar, like a newborn baby, and the other reward the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that the proper Hajj will have no lesser reward than gender law, no lesser reward than gender. May Allah grant it to you. I mean, our brothers and sisters, throw the Hajj of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam many beautiful things happened. And he gave some of the most powerful speeches ever. I'll

00:21:18--> 00:22:02

share with you one speech and sha Allah into four parts. I'm giving just a summary of it and some major points in it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the greatest day of the year, that they are thought of the ninth day of the last month of the Islamic calendar, the ninth day of the last month of the Islamic calendar. The greatest day the sun ever rises upon. This is the day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says how much Allah loves and appreciates. It's the day that Allah loves when we make dua and we supplicate to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And by the way, if you were not enhanced if you were not in hajj on that ninth day, and you fast the Prophet sallallahu

00:22:02--> 00:22:44

alayhi wa sallam says, the one who fasts that day of arafah Allah forgives the sins of two years, the year that passed, and the year that comes after Allahu Akbar me Allah, forgive us and protect us and allow us to fast that day had we not been in hajj mirabal Allah mean. So on that day, that blessing day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remember that time is tight. Hedge is exhausting. The crowd is large. So every word is calculated. Every word is concise by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as always, look what he says. I'll address four things with you that he mentioned in his beautiful sermon. He said in edema accom What am walakum haram en la alikum he

00:22:44--> 00:23:25

says, your lives and your wealth are sacred and in one narration will come and your honor and your dignity are sacred. So he's teaching us be away from all types of oppression, specially the oppression that involves taking people's lives those who are innocent, specially the wealth of people, especially the honor and dignity of people run away from don't ever oppress anyone and he was very firm in that speech. Be away from oppression May Allah protect us. You know how bad oppression is? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, protect yourself from the supplication of the one who is oppressed. Why? Because when the one who is oppressed, the one who lost their

00:23:25--> 00:24:07

rights because of an oppressor when they pray to Allah, nothing will stop that supplication from happening. Allahu Akbar, may Allah protect us, and that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one of the reasons of this, look what he said, I pray to Allah, that I meet him without owing anyone and you're right in terms of me or pressing anyone he used to pray for that for how serious oppression is. And he gives us the advice the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, Whoever wronged anyone in this life, try to work things out today. Work it out. Today, your heart is beating brothers and sisters. So work it on today. Why? He says before our time comes, that if you spend all

00:24:07--> 00:24:47

the money in the world, you cannot pay them back. The ones you oppressed, you're oppressed, someone, some rights involved, fix it today, while you're also a lot because in the Day of Judgment, the currency will be about good deeds and bad deeds, and the one who oppressed will have to give away good deeds as the size of the oppression. And we'll give it to those who are oppressed. So much so that the one who oppress may give up all the good deeds are law, all the good deeds, the hard earned good deeds, the Quran that you read, the pm that you pray, the donations that you gave, gone, because of oppression, gave it away to all those who have oppressed type if they ran out of good

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

deeds, and there's still more people that men are oppressed, that women are oppressed what happens? Those who are oppressed will pass on their sins to the oppressor. May Allah forgive us and protect us. So after coming here,

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

Judgment with so many good deeds now it's all gone and more bad deeds. May Allah forgive us and protect us, me Robert alanine So number one, be away from all types of oppression, especially ones that involve people's lives, people's wealth and people's dignity and honor. Second thing, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah pollution in emilija helia akademija mo door, he says any matters of the backward cultural norms, there's many things that data they used to do there was so backwards is that all of that it's over. No cultural practice that contradicts Islam has to be practiced from now on any backward you know, habits and so on and so forth, needs to be done. So

00:25:42--> 00:26:21

any cultural practice that is complementing or comes along with Islam, there's not no problem with that. Anything that is damaging anything that is wrong, you should get rid get away from it. As many of the scholars they said one of the biggest, biggest problems that people have for not following the truth is them holding so tight to their backwards cultures or norms. May Allah forgive us and grant us wisdom, you know, but I don't mean to share with you an example. You know, and this is no disrespect to the people as much as I just wanting to advise all of us. You know, there's a baby that was born. So the parents, wishing the baby will never get an evil eye will never be jinxed. So

00:26:21--> 00:27:01

he put in some cultures, a blue eye, just a blue eye and attach it onto that baby's clothing. So whenever the baby's being passed around to see you know, to comment to gift, they see the blue eye as if it's a evil eye protector, like a screen protector. And that is incorrect. Maybe part of the culture believed in that. So this is an example to let go of these beliefs Allah protects. You want a screen protector on the child from evil eye and jinxing, then read beautiful art from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam see the two out of the prophets I said him that he used to do to the grandchildren he had 100% or lucuma be Kalamata lifetime Galicia Tottenham woman, Kalyani Lama, I pray to Allah

00:27:01--> 00:27:42

subhanho wa Taala, the DA he made with a lot of beautiful words to protect the child from the evil eye and from the devil, so on and so forth. So with that being said, brothers and sisters, any cultural norms and practices contradict Islam, get rid of it, may Allah protect us immutable alanine and the third out of the fourth is share with you the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Remember the gathering massive gathering? Time is tight. The crowd is big hedge is exhausting. And look what he says for de la halfen Nisa fulfill the rights of women, fulfill the rights of women and be aware of our last punishment had you not do so Allahu Akbar, Allah who no one honored woman, no

00:27:42--> 00:28:23

100 women better than Allah subhanho wa Taala. No religion honors women better than Islam. And the moment our men and women they hold tight to Islam, they will be honored and dignified. And anytime they hold on to anything else that contradicts Islam will lie. No dignity will be there. May Allah allow us to be people of wisdom. I mean, terrible. I mean, don't let people change your mind or brainwash you or anything like that. Islam is old Islam is no longer applicable law and law. It is applicable in every time and every place. May Allah grant us wisdom and understanding of Islam. I mean, nobody I mean, the prophet sets for life in the south, be mindful of your woman fulfill their

00:28:23--> 00:29:04

rights. This comes to show your brothers and sisters, that a true man, a true man, according to Islam, according to Allah is the one who is merciful, the one who is kind, the one who is trustworthy towards his woman, while lying, he is not a true man, the one whom the wife has to beg for a nice word to come from him. A true man is not a man whom the woman has to beg to see a smile from the face of the husband. It's not a true man, the one who is gentle, kind, merciful, understanding when he goes outside the house. But when he comes back to the house becomes like a wild beast. People want to be away from him at home. That's not a true man. May Allah forgive us and

00:29:04--> 00:29:42

protect us miserable. I mean, and I warn you and I warn myself, all the brothers though, especially those who are married, I warn you, you know who will be against us human kiama if we are not fulfilling the rights of our woman, you know, who will be on the other side against us? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Can you and I handle that? One more time the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be on the other side against us if we don't fulfill the rights of the woman. What did you get that from brother, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in Hadley alikum Huckleberry Finn led a team when he said I issue a warning. I warned they stern warning against

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

those who are basically abusive do not fulfill the rights of the two vulnerable people, the orphan and the woman. May Allah protect us Amira alameen May Allah fill our homes with happiness and joy. Amina bellami. Let's learn from the greatest husband of all time Prophet Mohammed Ali Hassan

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

Laughter was sent on. You know how he used to deal with his wife Ayesha. He used to call her Irish Irish a beautiful, sweet nickname that she liked and he found so sweet and he also liked and that's the dealing between husband and wife. You know how about you and I we learned that from the prophets I seldom give a nickname which the wife likes, called her my beloved heavy Betty whatever your culture is to show that beautiful gesture and beautiful kind words may Allah grant us wisdom and a blessed beautiful marriage. The wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ayesha, she was asked, How did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam behave when he was at home? How was he

00:30:37--> 00:31:22

behaving? Like she said, he used to always be at the service of his family did you get that? The Prophet of Allah one of the busiest people ever walked on Earth, the one addition to that point, the one whom the doors of general will be open for when he's at home, he's at the service of his family, Allahu Akbar. But he said, however, when the time of Salah comes, then he goes and he performs a Salah, may Allah allow us to be people of understanding. I mean, terrible. I mean, check this out. This is beautiful. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one time he told his wife, Ayesha, he said, I know when you are happy with me, and I know when you are upset at me. She said, and how do

00:31:22--> 00:32:09

you know that? He said, when you are happy with me, you say what about Mohammed? I swear by the Lord of Mohammed. So whenever you want to swear, you say I swear by the Lord of Mohammed. And whenever you are upset at me, you say what, Ibrahim? I swear by the Lord of Prophet Ibrahim. Then she says, Yes, you are right. Then she says, well, Lucha rasulillah I swear to Allah or prophet of Allah, that I may abandon only your name from my tongue, Allahu Akbar, meaning but you are never abandoned from the heart to Allah. May Allah bless our marriages. May Allah grant us wisdom of how to treat one another. Be sure be sure to overlook some of the shortcomings here and there. May Allah grant us

00:32:09--> 00:32:48

once again the aspect of wisdom is very important. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam look what he said, and I'll end with this one. He says, it is not befitting for a believing man to dislike his wife or believing woman over one bad trait that she has. It's not befitting. He said in Gary Hammond who wrote the I mean, ha ha. If there's one thing you don't like about your wife, then look at one thing that you like about your wife a lot, but try to be balanced. No one is perfect. We all have shortcomings. We all have problems. This is advice for all of us. May Allah grant us once again unless it narrates me No, but I mean, so he said be away from oppression. He said Watch out from

00:32:48--> 00:33:28

cultural norms and practices that contradict Islam and be away from it. And he said, fulfill the rights of women. And lastly to share with you he says, I'm leaving behind something, if you hold very tight to a few hold very tight to you will never go astray. Allahu Akbar, what is that thing? So you and I can also tie to what is it? He said Kitab Allah, it is the book of Allah brothers and sisters, may Allah allow you and I to have strong connection with the Quran. I mean, herbal alanine is the connection from the heavens all the way to the earth. That's the connection, the food for our soul. And if you cut that connection, if there's no Quran in our lives, we don't read it. We don't

00:33:28--> 00:34:07

hear it. We don't contemplate on it, and so on and so forth. We cut it completely, then we're dead. Yes, the heart may be beating, the legs may be walking, the eyes may be open and seeing but the heart The soul is dead. And these are not my words. These are the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he Allah grant this life, that real life I mean, he said the example of the one who mentions Allah remembers Allah and of course, the greatest of mentioning is the Quran. And the example of the one who does not remember Allah does not do the vicar of Allah, and which includes the recitation of the Quran, completely cut it off, is like the one who is alive and the one who's

00:34:07--> 00:34:47

dead. May Allah grant this life, brothers and sisters that people of the Quran May Allah make you and I amongst them, Passover leisel Allahu Allah He was and look what he says. He says in the light, Lena meanness Allah has a group of people whom he loves so much, whom a lot gets they are so close to Him whom Allah help some Allah assist me with a VIP protection. So that's a habit said Yasser. Allah tell us who are these people? He said, they are the people of the Quran. May Allah make you and I amongst them me and obey Allah mean honor and dignity to them to give you a glimpse and example, obey even niqab may Allah be pleased by him. Check this out. One time the Prophet

00:34:47--> 00:34:55

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to obey. It says ye obey, Allah told me to read or unto you.

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

Obey even niqab said, as a manual be Oprah

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

Allah, Allah mentioned me by name by name to you to read on to me. The Prophet said Nam, yes, Rebecca, Rebecca and start crying and crying out of joy. Brothers and sisters obey even Academy Allah be pleased by him. It was not known that used to donate so much like Earth man, or no so much Hadeeth like Abu hurayrah or serve the Prophet so much like ns or fought in the battlefield, like Khalid, but he was known to be Person of the Quran, tried his best to implement every command, tried his best to read and memorize and recite and hear and to use it in every possible good way, Allahu Akbar. and due to that, to work towards the Quran, Allah honored him to that level that he specified

00:35:43--> 00:36:24

a special, you know, invitation to hear the Quran from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, and to truly connect it to the Quran, I want you to give me your undivided attention. Our scholars, give us these five routes to learn and to connect with the Quran. Number one, to listen and to read, the Quran will lie It's not befitting for an entire day to pass by where our mouth where's our tongue did not read the Quran, where our ears does not hear the Quran. This is the food of our soul. May Allah grant us life. I mean, I mean, so read the Quran have like a daily practice that you have. And I'll share with you an example. And hopefully we have good applications out there. I'll give you a

00:36:24--> 00:37:02

share with you. And there's an application called hotma hotma. Beautiful, it makes you set up How much do you want to read on a daily basis, they give you a reminder, and you finish in accordance beautiful stuff. You want to do two pages a day, you want to do one user a day you want to do 20 to 40 pages, you set your limits you set, you set your target, and you go from there. And FYI, I don't take any benefit from promoting that application. And there is anything better than that. Make sure you share it with other people. But there's things out there to help you be consistent with reading the Quran. And I know I do understand, some of us have difficulty reading. Some of us can take maybe

00:37:02--> 00:37:42

10 minutes on one line understand and also a lot Selim knows and Allah knows best. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he tells the people who are struggling, he says whoever reads the Quran, and is struggling yet that data fellow agilon you get to rewards Allahu Akbar, the reward of the citation, and the reward of the struggle that you're going through. Put the effort, Allah made the Quran possible for you to read, even though Arabi is not your first language. Allah says, Well, after the sermon for analytic, Allah said, we have made the code easy to be remembered, easy to be recited, it could be possible, but work hard for headman, what decade? Are you going to take the

00:37:42--> 00:38:26

action item and work on it allows my witness in one of my previous engineering products, a man of status at work, senior engineer, he came to me and he said, Would you mind brother magic, sharing a few minutes of your lunchtime to teach me how to read the Quran? May Allah grant him the best. I don't praise and our last behalf. But it was very humbling. And it was very inspiring to me. So I said, why not? So we spent about two to three days of lunchtime a week to read the Quran. He used to prepare at home to his best of ability, when it comes to our session at lunchtime, read for a few minutes allows my witness eventually he read so fluently, so beautifully. And so Panama The one who

00:38:26--> 00:39:05

always fulfills his promise you try to get close to Allah and Allah subhanaw taala will always bring you closer to him. You walk to Allah and Allah will run to you brothers and sisters, read the Quran, listen to the Quran, that's one of the five to share with you. And by the way, you may have a different way of categorization which is all fine in sha Allah. The second of the five is to contemplate on the Quran. Yes, we read. Yes we hear the Quran. But you also need to contemplate how many times how many times we read poldhu Allahu Ahad Allahu Samad, a Samad What does it mean? How long have we read it yet? We don't know what it means. Someone, the one Allah subhanho wa Taala one

00:39:05--> 00:39:48

of his names a summit is the one who does not need anybody but everybody needs him Allahu Akbar. This is one of the meanings of Allah's name is Ahmed. You hear the Quran you contemplate look at even Mr. Wood, may Allah be pleased by him ready for this? He says to the people, anytime you hear in the Quran, yeah, I knew how loving are you who believe he said pay attention. Why? Because anytime Allah says or you will believe after it. Allah will tell you either for you to do something, or for you to stay away from something Allahu Akbar. contemplate the Quran. So the first one read and listen, second, contemplate the Quran. Third, which is very important is acting upon the Quran.

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

The Quran, Allah says, Well, duh, bah bah, bah bah, don't backbite one another. So you act upon it, you don't backbite one another, unless there's no Quran or you who believe it or Allah Allah.

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

To Rasul obey Allah and His Prophet, so you respect the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you respect the authentic narrations, the prophets, Allah sent him have said, and we take from that Allahu Akbar, look at the example of honorable hottub May Allah be pleased by him check this out. One time a man came and insulted me or the line insulted him so bad, and gave an accused him of the worst of since then I'm so angry. He got up about to do something to him. So a third party, a third person saw this, and he addressed Omar and he told her Omar, Allah says in the Quran, he's quoting a verse check this out. A lot is on the Quran. Jose laffel. Forgive what mobile do that which is good.

00:40:43--> 00:41:29

What are the annual gentlemen and ignore the ignorant people? And yeah, Omar, this man was insulting you is ignorant. The story authentic narration Omar froze, froze. This is a prime example of acting upon the Quran that is set Okay, that said Allahu Akbar, may Allah allow us to be people that act upon the Quran. I mean, I mean, four out of the five going to the next one is to use the Quran as a book of guidance, a book of justice, that guides you and you have problems and disputes look with a lot of palletizers in the Koran, one of the left don't feel ashamed. For hakuho illa. Allah says, and in anything over which you disagree, its ruling is to be referred to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:41:30--> 00:42:08

There are matters of inheritance, who gets what and how much and things of that sort. Go back to the Quran as a reference. There's a divorce between people between a man and a woman, how do we spend on the child who takes care of what see what the Quran says and many, many more examples, may Allah protect us and European Parliament and please do not be limited to hold on, specially when judging in terms of disputes and so on. And say, this is no longer applicable will lie. This sentence is powerful, it can be very damaging, may Allah grant us wisdom. The fifth thing with a hold on ready for this one, I pray to Allah that you and I applied is very important. Use the Quran as means of

00:42:08--> 00:42:26

cure and medication. Yes, that's one of the ways to connect to the Koran. And I'm not saying cure a medication only in terms of to the soul, but also to the illnesses of the actual body to the actual body. A lot of the Quran, one known as the luminol, or an email who was Shiva

00:42:27--> 00:42:58

methylene meaning Allah said we have sent down the Quran in the Quran is cure and mercy to the believers, those who believe in the words of the Quran and they recite it alone MC as means of cure Allahu Akbar. Check this out. During the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, inauthentic narration, there was a leader of a tribe who got bitten by a poisonous snake. And that poison spread to the body. The guy became weak, struggled to breathe.

00:42:59--> 00:43:38

The body was so we couldn't walk, remove. And then the tribe tried everything possible to cure them and the leader who got bitten by the poisonous snake, and nothing worked with him nothing. So then they saw a group of travelers who happen to be Muslims, so they rushed to them out of desperation. And they asked them, are you travelers? Do you have anything that can cure our leader? He has been bitten by a poisonous snake. We did everything possible yet he's not cured. So one of the companions, one of the believers said yes, I can try an attempt to do what what's your cure? What's your medicine? He says the recitation of the Quran, the Rokia and he went to that man to the leader,

00:43:38--> 00:44:20

who was stung by and bitten by the poisonous snake. He went and he read Alhamdulillah Allah Bella, and I mean, AR Rahman AR Rahim till the end of the chapter one Surah Al Fatiha and narration says, In no time, that pain was gone. In no time, the man was able to walk as if nothing happened a lot about the power of the Quran, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he heard of this event, the Sahaba told them the story and he approved of it that yes, Al Fatiha chapter one is a means to recite when there is pain. May Allah protect us available enemy to cure that pain. May Allah I pray to Allah to cure all those who are sick amongst us. I mean terrible enemy. Brothers and sisters.

00:44:20--> 00:44:53

This was just of the summary of the kotoba of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, his sermon where he spoke about what remember will remind you what was the first one, be away from oppression. Number two, get rid of bad cultural practices. Number three, fulfill the rights of woman. Number four, hold tight to the book of Allah and you will never go astray. And there's more details of course of that sermon, that inshallah you can go and go into depth and learn more about it. At the end of the sermon, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the people, you will be asked about me.

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

You will be asked about me whether I delivered the message or not to methaqualone what

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

Will you say when the last panel asks you, they said, We will say and we bear witness we bear witness or prophet of Allah. But Beloved, what a date when you have conveyed the message, you fulfilled the trust and you gave us the best of advice. Then the prophet SAW settling with his finger pointed to the sky and said aloha Mashhad, Allahu Mashhad, Allahu Mashhad, or a library witness of their testimony or Allah, their witness to their testimony or Allah bear witness to their testimony. This shows you the humbleness of the prophet SAW Selim, that he himself will be asked whether he fulfilled the trust or not. What about you and I? Allah will ask us to fulfill the trust

00:45:38--> 00:46:21

and every one of us has trust involved. Some of us are married or spouses and should our trust May Allah allow you and I to fulfill the trust and May Allah forgive us your Allah forgive us for our shortcomings me hon. Allah mean, brothers and sisters. Eventually the Hajj came to an end, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fulfilled that pillar of Islam, his first Hajj ever, and he went back to Medina and spent the last few days of the 10th year of emigration in Medina. However, at the beginning of the 11th year, after immigration, the prophet SAW sudden began to feel very sick, very exhausted, so much in pain, unlike any other pain he experienced in terms of exhaustion, so on and

00:46:21--> 00:46:50

so forth. We will talk about that in more details. It's a message that will have it will be painful, but inshallah we'll also have hope in it. We can all learn in the last panel with Allah. In our next session, may Allah grant us long lines to talk about the Prophet as I love to learn from him. And may Allah allow you who has been watching this entire period of time. May Allah grant you the ability to see the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in the highest levels in the desert below hiren was Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
