Hola Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah.
Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam de Sleeman kathira Sierra Nevada. My dear brothers and sisters, we are looking at the
clock of laser SLM, which we call the lack of the ability of muscle muscle cell of the oma how we should have our o'clock, an hour o'clock should be like the last of our leader of our, of our NaVi of our soul, of the one who is the heavy one of Allah,
gelato sallallahu alayhi wa he was a new seller doesn't even consider and consider our club must be like his of love because his flock was the club. The manner the ways which were approved by Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Allah subhanaw taala praises as luck. And Allah said you are on the best of character, the best of luck and hamdulillah.
Therefore, we try to emulate that in our lives as much as we can.
Now we are looking at the qualities of the people agenda, which Allah subhanaw taala
mentioned for us and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us among people with those qualities.
And those of you watching this video,
when you're looking at it, it looks like I'm holding this cup in my left hand. It is not this is my right hand.
This is unfortunately, the camera flips the image. And
the flowers, for example, are on my left.
But this is my this is my left hand, it seems to be two seems to be the right hand, the flowers are on my left, but they look like they're on the right and this looks like I'm holding the cup in my left hand, but it's actually the right hand. The reason I'm saying that is because people
are quick to criticize. I don't mind the criticism as long as it is fair. So I want to make sure that you have the right information.
And of course, if anyone knows how to cure this, please let me know. This is my phone camera. This is not a zoom camera. It's not a webinar, webcam, this is the telephone camera, because the quality of the picture is is much superior. And since many of these lectures are broadcast on television channels in different countries. Therefore, we make sure that the quality of uploaded
is high definition and suitable to be directly telecasts and therefore we have to use the best camera that is the fourth camera but it flips the image so this is what happens anyway.
To come back to our story.
We ended last session with talking about the love of Rasul Allah is Allah Allah. So therefore and why must we love Him because whenever he loves Allah must love us rasa Salaam, whoever Allah loves.
Sorry, whoever loves Allah subhanho wa Taala must love Rasulullah sallallahu Allah loves and must love everything else for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah Allah sent this to us which is the ad which I quoted for you last class also when Allah said Colin quantum to Hebrew and Allah ha for W e, you will call Allah. We offer Laguna Nova como la for him, he sets a lolly sallam, he said Allah subhanaw taala dilijan Allahu Allah Allah, say or to them over hummus or syrup. Those who claim to love me those who claim to love Allah, tell them to emulate you to imitate you to do what you do to look like you to walk and talk like you to deal with people like you and so on and so forth. So that
they completely become copies of Mohammed Salah if they do that, then Allah will love them. Tell them Allah will love you. And Allah will forgive your sins and Allah subhanaw taala is most forgiving
and most Merciful of forgives, often of forgiving and most merciful.
the love of Allah His Messenger sallallahu sallam, and tales revering him, loving him following him, referring his way over every other way, seeing his son, his habits, his manners his way as a defining thing in our lives. And following his Sunnah as a mark.
Our belonging to his oma and giving his statements priority over every other statement of any of the creatures and you have there be any of the Allah and so on and so forth. The statement of the prophets Allah serum takes precedence over every statement except the column of Allah because that is not the statement of a human being.
We practice a sadhana for salsa Salaam as our Hallmark as our trademark as our signature as our face.
It is like in any group, there are some
especially groups which are very strong in their cohesiveness, a lot of military sort of for example battalions and military regiments, they have a regimental code, they have a regimental
you know slogan, they have a regimental song
which is which is specific to that regiment. And it the purpose of that is to inspire a sense of belonging, a pride in belonging to that regiment which presumably has done some wonderful things whatever they are. So, this is a
common thing in any group. And as far as we are concerned as a group of human beings, our
common ritual our common way our common speech, our commonality, the means of,
of being together the means of adhesiveness amongst us is the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasul Allah He Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So therefore, it is very important for us to follow the Sunnah and everything that we do in life.
The other very important thing about the sun map
is that when a person follows the Sunnah he's doing it to please Allah subhana wa jal, obviously with that intention, then he action becomes an action of Allah. And Allah subhanho wa Taala then rewards him for that action. Even though the action itself is something that the person is doing for himself. For example, if I am drinking something, if I drink it the way that Rasul Allah sallallahu Sallam told us to drink for example, if I'm drinking water, Rasul, Allah says, Allah taught us how to reward he said, Hold the glass in your right hand,
look into the glass, ensure there is no impurity in it, sit down and drink, and drink in three sips or three gulps don't drink it all at once, right. So if I follow this, first and foremost, I am drinking water because I've been thirsty number one, number two, if I drink in this way, it is intrinsically better for me, I'm not likely to choke on the water, the water, water won't go into the rock go into the wrong place, you know, into my air passage. For example, if I drink too much, if I drink it, certainly in too much of a hurry. If I don't look into the glass, I don't want to, you know, suddenly find that I've swallowed some insect or something which was decided to and it's
miserable existence in my glass. So the point is that if all of this I am doing and doing it for my benefit, but
when I do it, because Rasulullah sallallahu taala to me, or taught us to do it, then this simple action, which is a mundane, everyday action becomes an action or a bother, because I'm doing it to please Allah subhanho wa Taala
I would clip my nails anyway. But if I clip them the way rasulillah salad was to clip which is you start with the index finger of your right hand as I told you, this image is flipped other way around, so this is my right hand. So if I start with the index finger of my right hand, and then I go to the number two finger three, four, imagine you're holding your hand like this and do I start with this finger, you go to the next one third one fourth one, then this one is a fifth 16789 and then you come back to this thumb, which is still stuck in your right hand and go all the way to the top of your left hand and come back to the thumb of your right hand if you do that. Then I have to
clip my nails anyway. I clipped my nails but if I do it like this then I also
in I also earn inshallah, the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah so Allah subhanaw taala
rewards me for clipping my nails. I mean, I'm doing it. You know, in any case, I grew my beard, my beard will grow anyway because Allah subhanaw taala made me with a beard, right Allah subhanaw taala made gave facial hair
To the males in most races except for the, for the
Chinese races for our Malaysian and Indonesian brothers and Chinese brothers who do not have facial hair, but otherwise, almost everybody else. Some Africans also do not have facial hair, but almost everybody else has facial or men have facial hair. But if I grow this beard, not for fashion not for you know not for any other reason I grew it because also Sarah Sarah told us to grow our beards, then this becomes a matter of a bother, it becomes a matter of following the Sunnah. And then I get rewarded by Allah subhanho wa Taala for growing something, which in any case is part of my makeup. Anyway, this is something which is on my face, I'm not doing anything extra, but this is something
which is beneficial. He tells me this is the beauty of the so now for salsa, Salah.
Now obviously, the salon, the NaVi la sala is not restricted to grooming,
a lot of that gave us
a life, which was so comprehensive.
you know, widely
applicable in life to absolutely anything we can think of.
Therefore, there is a sunnah of Rasulullah Salaam to be followed in every aspect of your life. If I'm a businessman, and I want to do business, I can and I should do business the way it also relies on sort of the business. If I'm a head of state, and I want to run a country, then I should run it the way that person seldom taught us how to run a nation. If I'm the commander of an army, and I want to see how that is to be done, then I can look into the certain officers and sell them to see how an army commander should behave. If I'm an ordinary soldier, and I want to know how I should behave, I can look into this into this phenomenon, to see how I should be
anything at all. If I'm a father, if I'm a mother,
wealthy, if I'm poor, any situation, there is less there are lessons for us if I'm a farmer, if I'm a shepherd,
if I'm an artisan, if I'm a if I'm an employer, if I'm an employee, right, any situation Alhamdulillah we have the Nabi sallallahu sallam, in husana, in whose way there is a lesson for me to apply in my life, no matter what I do in my life, this is the beauty of the Sun navamsa there is nothing that I can be doing. And I say, Well, you know what, I don't have any guidance from the sunlight this because my work is so unique.
Right? Unless I don't know,
if I'm an astronaut in the, on the space station, maybe I'm in a situation where I don't have an exact thing to take from the sun now but even that there will be other things from the sooner that I can take which is for example,
Derek to the
to, you know, praying to Allah subhanaw taala my dealings with my my fellow astronauts, how do I behave with them? What do I do all of this, of course is very much
has lessons for me from the so not from
the Sahaba no human being was dear are more revered in the hearts of the Sahaba than
America last or the Alon who he said after accepting Islam and as you know he and Khalid bin Allahu they accepted Islam together.
However there as well, there are no he said that no person was more hateful to me than sort of nicer. But when I became Muslim, no one was dearer to me then also nicer seller.
Nor more revered in my site, is a very interesting story.
In the last panel, Delano
was one of the
young Sahaba he was one of the youth have the courage
and the savage to say this is to say that the horatia have
given up their youth to us,
because it was people like this, and one of the last categories and so on, who gave it to Islam and the hamdulillah you
Use them in wonderful ways to strengthen the position of Islam and Muslims. So these people they,
you know, they became a means of great strength
for Islam. And they, you know, they conduct themselves so beautifully and they did.
They did amazing things so far so but many of them had had
you know, interesting stories about how they came into Islam. Now, our last one, Delano was actually one of the
one of the enemies of Rosaura Salah.
He was one of the most adamantly opposed people to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So what he did was that after the first hitter,
when he dropped the senior that is when Jaffa Jaffa inevitable vellano and others were sent to me senior to the kingdom of magaji. The negus was a Christian King, pious Christian King, which also sent the Sahaba there to take refuge and be there in His Kingdom in case something untoward happened in Makkah.
So they went there
and doesn't know not Pamela farmer Dylan was with me. Now,
the Horatio maka, this sent us now the alarm as at that time before he was a Muslim, they sent him because he was a friend of the king of adversity, he was very well known to him and he considered himself to be a friend of the negative of Najafi. So, he went and his
his task was to bring these Muslims back as prisoners. So, he went there and with the intention of of saying that you know, these people
are bad people and whatnot. So, anyway, he took with him the the attributes to make the operation of those days to make leather handicrafts, which the niggas liked
our brass or the lava knew that the majesty you know, like those things, so, he took a whole lot of those and with a delegation with some other people within this field to
to Ethiopia to add a travel senior.
So when he landed there
he they camped outside the city
and out of law, so the law we said to these people, I will just go and check and see what the situation is like, and then I will call
so they were okay. They had just come back come out from the sea. Why is the obviously needed somewhere so they camped, and he went into the, into the palace. As he was entering the palace, he saw one of the Muslims from Medina, they're leaving. Now, he didn't know what had happened because what actually had happened was that he had sent him as is enjoy
asking the neighbors to conduct
a wedding between himself solo Salaam and
Viva La Jolla, Han, the daughter of Abu sufian Padilla. So I was young daughter had, she was married, but her husband left Islam and he went away so she was now
she she didn't have a husband, and also someone proposed marriage to her and she accepted. So this person came from Medina to ask the negus to be the Wali and to conduct the wedding of Omar Viva la tierra Sora Salam so that she could then go to Medina.
Now our MLAs didn't know all this. He just saw this person going. So he went in. And the next is you know, you're welcomed in front of his eyes. Oh, well welcome. And
then he asked him he said, What did you bring for me? I was like, like good friends. So he brought t shirts. I brought all these things for you. The necklace was happy, you know he put them into his into storage, and then is attorney What can I do for you? So
out of the last one other law
Before he became Muslim, he said to the nagus
he said that ban went away,
given to me have a minister given to me, so I can take him back with me and we will execute it.
Right now the niggas was got very upset with this.
He said, What are you talking about? He had just conducted his wedding, right? Anyway, he said, Why are you here? He said, I am here to take back our slaves. He said, we have slaves, they have escaped from us. And we have come to collect them back who are the same Muslims? So the niggas call them? Of course, they were not slaves. They were they were, you know, free men and women who were, who were with our will equal don't last in every status.
So when you call them, they made Matura. They said, Well, what shall we do? They say, well, we have we will appoint a spokesperson and the smokebox spokesperson was appointed as Jaffer been a battalion of the alano, the brother of alumina battalion.
And so when they call him the court,
the negus he asked
Jaffer, he said,
so what this man is saying here, what do you think they say, well, this man is not speaking the truth is like we are first of all, we are not saved. Secondly, we are not run away from anywhere. We have been persecuted because we accepted Islam because we accepted it.
So thank you says why what happened? What What does Mohammed Salam preach. So the name so Jaffa Metallica garage, very beautiful whole story. I'm trying to be brief in this.
He said that he decided the law he first said that losses are breaches that we should worship only Allah and nobody other than Allah. He will he preaches against idol worship, he preached he tells us to be honest, to be to be just
to be kind, compassionate, to be polite. And he said you know all of these good things he said which are against what these people do. So these people are upset with us because we are upsetting their their framework of of life.
Nigga said, What does he say about Jesus is Elisa.
As I told you, he was a Christian himself at that time. And his court was always Cardinals and so on in the court.
So, Jaffa we never thought about that around who recited the i o sort of marine,
which talk about manually Solomon is a listener. And when he finished, he saw that the nega samaya, she was weeping profusely, his beard was, you know, soaked with tears.
And so we're all his, his Cardinals and so on. So, you know, those huge commotion because people, you know, they heard this thing, and they were, they didn't know what was happening. So anyway, the neg has announced.
And he said that these people are in my protection, they can be here in this country, they can live here as long as they want, they can preach their religion, they can practice their religion, freedom, and nobody will bother. And when Adam last argued, the Nagel got angry when a king is a king us even if he was a friend, and he punched me.
In the face of the parchment, the radiator and the nose and the
profuse bleeding, all his clothes got full of blood.
Well, you can't do very much in the court of the king if you get punched by the king. So he didn't do anything.
Then he goes, of course, after that, he felt sorry for him. So he gave him some new clothes.
So out of the last day left from there, and when he came to his people, they found that he's very new clothes and so on. So so it looks like you had a very good welcome. You know, the king is pleased with you, and he gave you no clothes and so on. I didn't say anything to them. You didn't say in terms of how come you had these new clothes. Then what he did was that in the night, when these people were sleeping, quietly sneaked away, and he took a ship.
And he decided to go to Medina
on the way to the end after he landed in Arabia, and now he's on his way
to Almudena, the menorah.
He thought he saw somebody traveling and he saw there was this camp and there were two people in many regions that he founded. One of them was hi Be wary of the alarm.
So he asked him, he said, Where are you and he said, I'm going to the same place your way.
Because the time has come and we should accept Islam, according
to his old story,
You know of all that. So anyhow, to make a long story short, the point is that our middle class, this is our interest so he was an implacable enemy of from Soros and Salah.
But when he entered Islam, he when they came as soon as I saw them,
you know, to a great surprise, Michelle solemn honored them. He told everybody in Madeira when he heard that they were coming, he said nobody will abuse them, nobody will say anything
hostile nobody will express any hostility to them because the the high level either the law
after the Battle of odd in which 70 Sahaba died.
And a lot of them are from a dinner. So obviously you heard me when he was was not the most beloved of people, because he was the one who was responsible for this sort of bizarre set of instructions and nobody will say anything to Highland valley that our interest and we will welcome them let them come so then they came
peoples are courage have given up their crowd question given up their their youth and they're the cream of their society. These people were very highly respected and they were hiring well it was a great general sort of alarm for that matter.
Then they regionalism Salam rasuna salam honor them he may he put his shawl on the ground, he got salad, been willing to sit on the shore. And when they accepted Islam Rasul Allah so solemn,
gave Khalid bin Walid, his sword and he gave him the title of Saiful Islam, given the title of the sword of Allah Saifullah, given the name of cibola, the soul of Allah. Now,
American harass or the law says that, before I became Muslim, there was no one who I hated more than Maha Selim. And after accepted Islam, he said, there's no one that I love and revere more than Mohammed Salah lorrison. So to love and revere asceticism is a sign of Islam. It's a sign of the faithfulness of the believer.
And then they asked him to describe so he said, Were I to be asked to describe sort of lies and sort of do
I would not be able to do that.
So, they said Why?
He said, because I never looked directly at him out of my great reverence for him summarizing.
The other brothers habit was such that they did not look they did not even look at Rosaura licensor directly I mean, right and this is the respect that they had for the visa lasala that even look at him directly, they considered that to be a
fault in other and they did not do that they never looked at him directly, you know, difficult to understand in our times, but because we are in our time we have made
we have become so ill mannered that. For us. This is this, this looks like it is
something strange. But for the sad but this was a mom This is the other one was so great that they did not even look at the
blessed face of Russia directly.
Very, on a side note, a beautiful story, which continues
many years later.
When Khalid bin Khalid Abdullah who was dying,
and he was in his home, he was on his bed, right he was lying in his bed, and he was dying. And he was very sad. He was very, very sad. So a friend of his came to visit him. And he found him in the state where he is extremely sad we asked him was why was so sad. He said, You know, I am sad because I spent my whole life. After I became Muslim, I spent my whole life seeking Shahada seeking to die in the path of Allah.
And he said, Allah is my witness. There is no part in my body from the top of my head to the soles of my feet, which does not bear a wound of a sword or a spear or an arrow
is in my whole body is covered with scars with wounds. And how did I get these wounds? I got these wounds because I deliberately looked for the most dangerous, the most the thickest of battle, the most dangerous places in battle. And I went into that, and my intention was was that I should be killed in the path of a loss.
Ran out that I should die defending Islam. So this is my this is my desire This is why I worked so hard I did this what is it today I'm dying like a camel in this table right Allah did not give me Shahada
he said this is not because I didn't seek it is not because I was a coward it's not because I hate somewhere or is afraid of it is happened despite the fact that I did everything in my power to try
to get to attend Shahada to try to get Shahada to, to to try to die in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala but he said it didn't happen.
his friend and the reason why I always say you know, you should have good friends.
He said, So, his friend his friend said,
he said, you know, Allah subhanaw taala will reward you.
when he when you meet him inshallah, but he said, Remember this, you could not have died as a Shaheed right? You could not have died as a child. So they said, he said, why not? He said, because your fate was sealed and if it was sealed meaning in the best way, he said, Your fate was sealed that day Rasul Allah is Allah seldom named you as cipher, not the sword of Allah. He said, How can the sword of Allah fall in battle? How can anyone overcome the sword of a man
So you said your fate was sealed the deal was a solemn pronounced
and called you say for law, sort of a license to sort of like cannot fall in battle. And that's how it happened. Imagine that how much of comfort it must have must have given to this the heart of highly innovative Well, that's the reason why you should it's a good thing to have good friends who who are wise and we're connected with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And who can help us
by their wise words, at a time when nothing else really matters?
My brother and sister I'm trying to speak to a deleeuw and emphasize the importance of following the Sunnah. And remember that in the Sunnah or in anything in the weakness of Allah subhanaw taala and the following of the son of resources Allah, selective obedience is disobedience. Right? selective obedience is disobedience. Selecting one so not and leaving other, leaving another one. reiterate that it is your love for your own desires, and not love for mamas or Sallam that drives you. We have this famous thing in Hyderabad, where everybody says you know, mitaka, mitaka zoonotic, I just say he tweets It is so now first of all, I don't even know whether it is or not.
There is also is not known to eat sweet sweets we used to like dates and he used to like honey, but whether you know whether they had sweets like we have today, all kinds of fancy sweet things, And whether he ate them Allah knows best. So I don't even know exactly what the buy point is. That people say that because really, if somebody's saying, you know, eat sweets, the sooner the reality is, you really want to eat sweets. And you say to soda at hamdulillah no problem. If it is a tsunami, Allah give you the reward, but my point is keeping a beard is also not
right. Break the hedges also from being polite is also not swallowing your anger not expressing your anger, not raving and ranting is also not cursing is also not
The being kind to your wife Your husband is also Sona
What about those
being absolutely meticulous with your dealings with people and giving a little more rather than giving less isn't
being extremely punctual on time every single time is also sudden.
So we want to do only eating sweets and then we are late and we miss appointments and we rave and rant and we curse and we backbite and we cheat and we lie and everything as all that is fine. There's no problem with the sooner or no sooner there, but when we change so not only this
please let us get real and last Valentino's allies watching
and others rather does not appreciate this kind of duplicity with regard to the with regard to anything
But definitely not with regard to the Sunnah of His Habib Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. So selective obedience is disobedience because when you are selecting one,
if there are three things to do and you select only one What does it mean you have deselected the other two. But what Allah wanted you to do was all three.
So when you selected one you decided to obey you simultaneously decided to disobey the other two things. So selective obedience is disobedience. Don't do that.
The one who loves Barbosa loves everything that Mohammed Salam did, and everything about who he was.
And it's only and it is only that one, that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves, not one who takes what he likes, and leave what he does not like Allah subhanaw taala will note that this worthless slave dislikes something that Allah liked for his messages on center, and also does a certain light for himself. And this slave disliked something that Allah Subhana Allah liked, for his messages of salah and also realized or seldom liked for himself. I do think that Allah subhanaw taala will like such a person, much less love this person, right is this Think about that.
So when we,
when we do this kind of selective
obedience, let us be very clear in our minds that we are playing a game that we cannot win because Allah knows what's in our heart.
Now, that nothing immediate happens, or comes to pass as a result of this arrogance, of taking something of the Nabhi and leaving out and discarding something of the Navy Salah Salah. Technically speaking, you know we should have
we should have seen the effect of this straightaway, but hamdulillah
Allah subhanho wa Taala is very merciful. So Allah subhanaw taala give some rope. But don't use that rope to hang yourself. Right? It's a sign that Allah is giving some grace period for us to make Toba and to change ourselves. So let's take it as an opportunity to win unless forgiveness
or it will become a rope to hang ourselves. The choice is ours.
Let us choose wisely, because we will not be given a choice again.
That is very, very important. We only live once. And as our shaffir. Mr. dalla, he said, life is an instant Let it be an instant of obedience.
Yamcha Vedanta is some very beautiful things. And this is one of the things that he said that life is a instant
Let it be an instant of obedience do not make life into something of disobedience.
The final thing I want to save our brothers and sisters with regard to the sun is
the most beautiful thing about the sun is that it is something which is so beautiful and good in itself. Tell me what is bad about swallowing your anger? What is bad about speaking to people politely? What is bad about not using foul language? What is bad about honesty and integrity and compassion?
What is bad about kindness? What is bad about respecting your spouse, your wife or your husband? What is bad about helping them in the house in the house in housework?
As soon as a resident needs to wash dishes,
to cook food
in his house?
What is bad about you know, joking and having fun with your family. He did that.
What is bad about bravery and courage in situations of stress and situations of danger.
There was some commotion, very early in the morning, people thought some you know, tribe was attacking Medina and they came out of their houses and see confusion and people are finding their weapons This is that they find a rider returning or going returning from the border. And when it comes to the sea, it is Mohamed Salah sallam, he is on a horse bareback. And he came and he said I checked it out everything is fine. Nothing to worry.
What's bad about that? What's bad about punctuality?
Every sunnah of Rasulullah Salaam is intrinsically good. It has benefit in it for us for this world. And it becomes a matter of a bather for which Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward
us in the next world. Now what is better than that? This is what we are talking about. ask Allah to make us among those who will love the synonymous of Salaam who will practice it to the best of our ability and May Allah reward you and May Allah give you from his treasures in a way that no one can give except to
