Salam ala alameen wa salatu salam
Just as we are looking at the issue of studying the Sierra, the biography, the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So, the question I asked myself and asked you to ask yourself is why must we study? Yes, it's a good thing. Yes, it's, you know, you're not you're not against it. But we are not saying is do it because it's a good thing. We are saying this is absolutely critically essential for us. Now, what is the grounds for that? Why do I say that? And you can ask me, Well, what is your theory? Why are you saying it's so important? So critical? Yeah, as I said, you know, nobody's denying the importance of it. But at the same time, you say that it's absolutely critical
that you need some kind of approval. What proof is this, that it's absolutely critical? Now, the proof I have is not just one, one piece of evidence it's underlap many pieces of evidence from the best source of evidence which is the Kitab of almost
first and foremost piece of evidence is the is which we recite in every single car in every Salah, the ayat from Surah Fatiha, which is the rune of the Salah, which is the pillar of the Salah, without which the Salah is invalid. And that is in a Serato Mr. sirata Lavina and I'm Tara Lee. Now reading of the Vla Allah, Allah subhanaw taala told us and taught us how to withdraw and Allah said, Oh Allah guide us to the path of steadfastness, the path of those who you blessed, the path of those who on whom you based on your grace, not the path of those who earned your anger or who went astray.
So in the question of the question, therefore is that we are asking Allah for guidance. We are not asking for some general guidance, we are asking for very specific guidance to the path
of those people. Who Allah Subhana Allah blessed.
Now who did Allah bless, so Allah subhanaw taala said in the So in the
last minute the law la rasuluh for hula Kamala, Dina Anima, la la mina B University Pina Vasudeva Sol de Janeiro la cara villa. And last Roger said which means that whoever obeys Allah Subhana Allah and the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah, then they will be in the company of those on whom Allah bestowed His grace. We asked for what
the will the company of those people on whom Allah bestowed His grace and blessing, this will be given to those who follow the orders of Allah Spanner and who follow the way of Amazon seller, they will be in the company of those who Allah bestowed his grace on And who are they? Allah Allah Ximena v was the DP was Shahada, Saudi, Allah among and those are the prophets, the city code, people like okra, Sidious or Delano, the Shahada all those who are martyred in the path of Allah subhanaw taala and righteous people the Salah, hacer una una de hacer una like and if you can learn how excellent are these companions?
Allah in other places as we know the surah Allah subhanaw taala said yes he came in kilometer Musa Li, Allah sirata Masaki and those running a call center one of the names artificial Salaam is also yazeed. And Allah subhanaw taala addressed him and he said, Truly, you are among the mursaleen you are among the prophets, who is giving this
guarantee who is making the statement Allah subhanaw taala himself. So, unless you are among the prophets and the messengers and you are on the path of steadfastness, what path is that? That is the path we asked Allah for his inner Serato mustafi he has to lower the give us another minister who is on Serato mustafi in the kilometer mercerie Allah Serato monster. So Allah subhanaw taala is saying that you are among the prophets and you are on the Serato mustafi. So, why must we study the Sierra because this is the noir in Surah Fatiha that we make in every single record of every Salah whether it is forward to so now within the field. So we make this door so therefore we must know what is the
master key. Right if you say Wallops give me put me on on
I 91. Yeah, like give me a 91 year whereas I do I don't know where it is. I need to know that what's the point of they give me either if you want
To know where it is, you asked for it was the look on a map, you know, do a Google search or something as somebody who does, who knows, you know, I want to get on to it when I need it. So no sense in keeping on asking I 99 and 81. And then people say, well, we're on 84 you're on, you know, mass pike or something. How come where is it a winner but you asking why 91 You don't even know where that is? Makes no sense. So you're saying isn't a Serato booster a winner? What is
in the Columbia mercerie Allah serata Muslim, so the path of the MBA among the MBA who is the Imam of them, Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who said you are on the Serato so when we are asking for Siracusa him next time from now onwards inshallah when we pray any Salah when we read this ayah is in a Serato city, think about this. This is what I'm asking Allah.
I'm asking Allah to keep me on the path of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what is that path called? What is another another name for that? The sooner
so people say why was that follows on that? Because you made it
as simple as that was the following because you made to offer it. You can't tell me that you make gum or something and you're not going to follow that Then why'd you make that?
So that is the beauty of the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salah every Raka of every Salah we are asking Allah to grant us the Sunnah of Muhammad Sallallahu.
This is the importance of the Sunnah many times people think there isn't it is nice to have if I do it, it's okay if I don't do it. So no, no, no, no.
Not like that. It's not like that at all. Just because there is no
we do that to deny the tsunami Spoofer. That's a different issue. But if somebody does not follow this, for whatever reason, there is some you know, there is no punishment associated with that. But that's a very
negative way of living life.
You know, if I say that I'm doing something only because I won't be punished for it. That makes no sense, right? I mean, you like to excel, you like to do something which is better in your jobs, in your careers, you know, in our families, in our marriages in our children, we do say that, you know, what kind of kids do you want? As long as my kid doesn't get into jail? I'm fine. You can do whatever it is that is that a statement is if some parents make that statement using a bad eye, you crazy I mean, this is your your dream about your kid, that he must be mustn't get into jail. I mean, you have you have no aspirations for no child that my child must become, you know, something
somebody worthy of respect and honor. I love my childhood, stay out of jail, it's fine. It's crazy. No, no parents, no matter how bad the children might be, but no parent will actually say that. But this is what we do with our team.
As soon as there's no punishment involved, so therefore, that's not why you live your life you live your life to please Allah. When I go before Allah, Allah must be pleased with me, Allah will be happy.
At least I will try. I mean, I succeed. I never I don't I don't say that I will succeed because of my efforts. But at least I will make the effort. And then we have complete and total faith in the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala in the generosity, that inshallah he will give us this. You know, it's like little children, sometimes you see people pushing a car, and they'll be a little two year old kid also, you also push the push of the car, that kid can't push anything, but he is with them. He's ever he's put his hand there and he's like, so now if somebody is taking notes and say how many people push the guy that kid's name has to be there when he pulls the guy.
Whether the guy moved because of him or doesn't matter, but he puts the guy wasn't standing there as expected, he was doing something
and that is what we must see with as with respect for the Do what you can do, do the best that you can do and aim for the best which is the pleasure of Allah. How do you get that through the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu. So this is the reason we asked for this. Secondly, Allah subhanaw taala showed us what is the what is that was the key. Allah Subhana Allah
gave us this ultramar mentioned this with respect to salsa. So Alhamdulillah This is the reason why we need to study this one. Second big reason.
Allah subhanaw taala brought us the secret of success.
Allah, Islam came to help us to succeed Islam came to help all human beings to become fantastically successful in this life.
The next life
there is no other system which comes with this. You know all other systems if you lay if you take the either or this or that and as far as that meaning the other life is concerned it is conjecture because we know that success comes only through Islam, but other religions sometimes they talk about future and and you know after death and so on and so forth. It is conjecture it is what they think will happen, there is no guarantee for that, whereas as far as Islam is concerned, Islam came to make us successful in this world and the next now, what did Allah tell us? What is it that will make us successful in this world and the next? Allah surrounded that I said Cannella coup de rasulillah
he was Wotton, Hassan, demon Gara de la Vela Farah was a Corolla Hakata Allah Mr. Carson, indeed, in the Messenger of Allah Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in him means what means in him as a person in every aspect of his life.
Everything is spoke everything he did every way in which he handled any situation, his whole life, his life, quality, you name it. In all of this, Allah said, The best example for you is the life of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam for the one who hopes to meet Allah Subhana Allah and who hopes for the last day for the day of gentlemen. And who remembers Allah subhanho wa Taala agreed deep was the kind of lack of feeling so we need to study the Syrah because Allah subhanaw taala ordered us to study this year.
If somebody asks you this question, what is the proof from the Quran that I need to study in Sierra? What is the proof that Allah told us to study the Sierra, this is the ayat of surah Plaza, I will send you all of these ads when when we send the recording of this inshallah we will have the reference in any case the book that I have given you, Sierra is the answer it has all of this Everything is there. So do read the book.
So therefore, we study the Sierra because Allah subhanaw taala told us to study this year, unless rantala then that
also told us now what is the benefit of this? I have studied the zerah I am trying to implement the Sierra in my life by practicing what Surah Surah Salaam did. I am trying to follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salah you might say well, what is the benefit to me of that? What do I get for that? Allah? Colin contento Habana la Fatah. boonie yohko la la comme la vaca 104 Rahim in Surah Allah Allah subhanaw taala said said to them go Mohammed Salah Salim If you really love Allah,
say to those who claim to love Allah subhana wa say to them if you really love Allah, make my
father who he he did not so far the only at uni we know Attila godfather Hosanna Zima Allah mentioned this in many places the hora la here is using a different word Allah is saying WD make my diva Fatah beauty. And then if you make the system of what level you have been called wa Allah will love you. And if Allah loves you, what is the basic minimum thing which will happen? Your fellow robot Allah
Allah will forgive your sins and Allah is most forgiving most merciful.
Now what is the demand it diva is to emulate
it diva is to imitate Who do you make the tip off? You make the above those who love the other day we were sitting, we went to a restaurant for dinner, and who walks in even other thought your son looks just like you. So when he walked in there, I told him I'd met him I told him I said you are doing just like that. So he's Alhamdulillah got good parents as in Mashallah very good
to parents also a good sandwich and I know, this big
losers, like, why does it look like it's Well, I mean, one is over genetics bar, when I say look like his father is not he walks like his father. He is the you know, has that much dignity and you know, the young guy, that fight for my brothers allowed him to have dignity that is understandable, but but for him to have dignity, he's younger, but you know, I have the Like I said, I do feel nice to see these, these boys growing up like this. So the point is, because he loves his father, he immediately take small children, you see that even more in leadership. The smaller they are, they walk like their father talks like their father. People imitate all kinds of sports, you know,
sports, icons, right? All the the sort of famous
people because they love them. The other the other person, in a general case, I mean, if somebody is, is trying to, you know, be like magic johnson Johnson or something, I mean, he doesn't even know this guy exists. But it's the way it's natural human tendency
to love somebody, you you aren't like them. My father
for almost his entire life, he didn't have a beard, he was to shave.
Now, I used to tell him so many times, I see to father you can only say that much beyond this, what can you say? It's not the job of parents to have children to,
to correct their parents. So I used to try to tell him you know, you should have a beard, it's a synonymous Allah salam, it's very important and so on. So but in some way I didn't. We didn't click with him. So he never did. Until one day my brother told him, he said, You know that
we have to love somebody.
Why not love Muhammad?
He said, we have to be like somebody. So why we have looked like somebody who no matter what you do, you will look like somebody. Why not look like Muhammad.
Now what I have is, I don't know if there are times when things happen. And my that thing clicked.
And hamdulillah my father, never hear from them.
And when he died at the age of 80, I buried him His face was like that, as if there was a light inside his face. white beard completely. And literally, it was like as if it was shining. And when I saw him many, many days, face was shining.
Why not look like one?
I don't there is. I can tell you the the importance of the beard. The hat is related to that. What Russell Russell SLM said about it. And I don't need to say anything. I the only thing I say, I say is this that, if you love what Amazon sells look like.
And if you look like Amazon, what does Allah say? And let's say you have a brick wall, Allah will love you.
Now, for me, for a Muslim for a believer, what is more than that, what is more valuable,
that Allah loves.
And just think about that, if you say,
I mean here, when I sit here,
these two people here, I mean, the others also I know very well. But these two, I know them now for almost 25 years now.
And I know for a fact, for example, that if I need something, and if I tell one of these two people, the only way that it won't happen is if they can't do it.
This is my belief, right? So if I say something to the power or to the, if they can do it, they will do it. There is no I don't have to say twice and nothing I if I say it, they do it because this is the this is the what we call the haza. This is the demand of love. Love means you do what somebody who you love, wants, or needs. What about Allah?
In the case of these brothers of mine, I know they have limitations. They know they have limitations. I might ask them to do something. They might do their best, but maybe it's something they can't do.
But with Allah
says Allah loves you. What does it mean?
It means you raise your hand and say Allah, I want this.
There is no way it won't happen.
The great scholar of the great law, he
won the debate and he's one of the one of those people who's called the the Imam was a taboo. Yeah. So Abdullah Omar, he was a he was a contemporary of Sofia natori
times like this where there was not one but there were several such people in society. That is what is our Abdullah bin Mubarak
rattler, he was in Makkah, there was a I'm talking about those who Allah Allah, Allah loves. So there was a drought, very, very bad. So there was an announcement to say we are going to go out and make Salah tourists discuss the prayer for read.
So people are left out, they went outside, and they made the salah and so on and so forth. And they came back, nothing happened.
So I was in our exam, I was sitting there and I saw these people came when they are dispersed, they went Oh,
he said one black African boy
in clothes, which were not tatters, but you know, they're not great clothes,
or drawers and maybe some holes in them and so on. So
He looked like a poor way.
a telemarketer I thought he looked like a slave.
He came in tomorrow
he came and he
sat down by one of the pillars
and he said Yala
Abdullah, listen to all this this this young boy he comes in
he said yeah Allah

and he's following him. He finds his why enters one house.
he goes to the house his way into the house he goes inside that bar goes he knocks on the door
the owner of the house he opens the door
now is a very famous jurist very famous man the man who opened the door is a one line yes ad you are here oh my god fantastic you know we are honored is that Please come in. So it goes into citizen and will you have something to eat this all this

So do you have somebody that you can give?
Doesn't matter no bra I whoever I have my house you're welcome

please take whichever one you want I will give
Angela humara groups of all of them that boy is not there
is no I don't want any of these
so this man said no no no but you know this one is so strong and this other one is got this quality and that quality
is it is there anybody else
that says you know this one boy who's kind of sickly is really young, he doesn't do any work. I just leave him I also don't take any work for me because he's weak.
He's a little version oh that call it
a call him his wife comes I'm gonna work. So this is the one he said this Bible.
So the man says, You know what we'll do
So now they are going from that man house. Abdullah will work regularly. And
so as they are walking and going, this boy was carrying something which slipped from his hand and filled up. So Abdullah Barak, picked it up and
his boy was shocked.
He said, he said, I am your slave, I am your servant.
You are picking up something for me.
Abdullah Barak says, You are not my slave. You are not my server. I am your slave. I am yourself.
I took you from there telling that man that I wanted a slave or a servant. He said I don't want any slave whatsoever. He said I took you from there because I know.
He said I want to serve you
and I want you to teach me
And I'm taking you to Sudan authority.
Because he said I thought his boys, he saw Abdullah Morocco this boy's face is changing and he's looking very worried.
So this was it, what did you see? Why are you saying all this
other American told him this is what I saw. I was in the era, I was sitting there, you gave you made? Do I like this to Allah?
He said, Allah has given you
what he has not given.
He said, Well if this was somebody else, he said, We used to think that we are the idea of allies and we are not the only one who
is our allies even he's got access to superior authority. He says what we wanted like if somebody else
like don't use
so as they're walking,
there is a small budget by the side of the road.
So this boy says to
reserve my master,
I want your permission to pray to
So now Mark said okay, I want to praise Allah is one who's you know,
his boy goes into the masjid. You praise to Allah.
And then he says, Yeah, Allah. Now they know.
Now they know
you Allah take me now.
I want to meet you now.
And he finished.
is the beginning of
Think about that.
You weren't allowed to love you.
You must love Mohammed Salah.
You want your daughter to be accepted?
You need to know
what a lot of love was love.
The love for Mohammed Salah, Salah.
love for Allah and love for us.
is not like love for anyone or anything else.
Right? There's a difference.
love for Allah means to obey Allah span.
Many people have claimed to love Allah.
There are all kinds of poetry has been written all kinds of things are there in many religions, there are whole complete religious philosophies of love for love for God and so on and so forth. None of that works. Because none of that is based on obedience to Allah subhanho.
love for Allah is to obey Allah. Love for a surah Allah subhanaw taala is to obey Rasul rasa is to follow him.
There is nobody who love rasuna Salah more than Abu Talib,
did not follow ambisonics
right until his last moments of his life
Abu Talib was dying.
As soon as an asylum came to see him.
Abu Jamal was sitting on one side of metallic
as soon as he came and sat on the other side of the island,
and he held his hand and he said my uncle please please please c'est la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah. Please say that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah and that I am his messengers. And that's the 5%
Abu Talib was about to say that and also now, when you are dying,
out of fear, you want to leave the religion of your father.
God either, you know,
tries to deceive and take away from our life.
So, I will tell you said No, I am not afraid and I am dying on the religion of my forefathers.
he loved Mohamed Salah, but he did not follow him but
he did not do is a tip that he did not do
that the other the punishment or my uncle will be there.
in Johanna Versace will be in Ghana and the punishment will be the least the stvr. So now what is the least punishment the jab.
The least punishment in janome is that sandals shoes of fire will be placed on the feet as a result of which the brain will boil like a pot of water Boyd's
list of punishments
and to protect us from Ghana, we ask Allah Aloma agenda.
So love for Allah is to obey Allah, love for Allah, Allah
is to obey Him and to emulate him imitate him.
Because emulation and imitation is a sign of love, and when we do that, what happens? Allah will love us.
This is what we expect Allah.
Allah say, I'm not making this claim. I'm giving you the references of the Quran.
Allah will love us and if Allah loves us, Allah said the first thing he offered laku macola of rape. Allah will wipe your sins clean, Allah will forgive all your sins, and Allah is all for him. He is the most forgiving and the Most Merciful.
And acceptance of God
is a sign that analogy.
Allah listens and Allah will do what the person who loves Allah, the One who loves Allah will give him what Yes.
This is the beauty. Therefore
the thing to do is to make whatever we have been doing this is the beauty of Islam. Allah left the door of is the far was our open for us, until the last minute when we see the angels
when we see one of the most
we are loving that moment, the best moment of our lives and shall because that is when we will meet Allah Subhana.
So to make this the far go apologize to Allah subhana wa sallam to make Dawa is to turn towards Allah Subhana Allah.
This is the sign of the Beloved. Stefan Otto
Rama has been humbled around Talalay
was going on a journey once he's traveling alone, nobody will leave.
And these are people who are you know, they had they followed the Sooners asylum. They were people who are humble. So he didn't go with a huge entourage of people with him. He went along.
So he reached this place, this small town or village
quite late in the night.
And there was a massive debt. So he went in the budget
was getting some small baggage with him. He prayed a lot. And then there was the mob in the mud.
So he said to the man, he said, I'm new here.
I'm a stranger. I have nowhere to stay. It's night. So can I just sleep here in the corner? He said no.
You got people.
You tried to persuade him as a no.
So then I said okay, if I can't sleep inside the budget, the courtyard Can I sleep there at least?
He said, No.
You can't be there. And this got to an extent where this man was very rude with Obama and to the extent the man picked up
things and he
literally is sort of forced out on the street and he threw the things on the street and he pushed him I was Yarmouth fella
literally got thrown out of the budget onto the street.
Now when that happened, there was a baker's shop across the street.
There was this man inside his bakery with baking bread. He saw this whole thing happening. He came out of there and he picked up things and he took him and he said no, no, please come this is very, very bad. How can this man treat you like this? He gave you please come He told brought him into his shop and he said you know the I don't have a great place. This is a shop and I make bread all night. But here is his place. And he said you can you are rested, you can sleep here, no problem. He spread his bed and so on and so on. Mama says I'm sitting there.
I'm you know, obviously thankful to Allah subhanaw taala I'm thankful to the man for his kindness. And he said I noticed that this man is continuously making stuff up.
While he is baking his bread he's reciting is the fun.
So, he said that Allah Subhana Allah has promised many blessings for those who make us different.
So if I was asked this man, he said, You know you I see you are doing the fire the whole time.
Your knob, he said, Yes, I do this all the time.
So I said to him, then Allah must have shown you some signs.
You would have seen some karma, you would have seen some signs of Allah, every one you see
them and said, You know Alhamdulillah
I don't know about garantizar but one thing I can tell you that Allah Subhana Allah accepts all my advice. So everything I asked Allah, Allah has always accepted except one.
There's only one law that Allah has not accept.
So this is getting stranger and stranger to our house that
accepts all your devices. hamdulillah Allah tala accepts all my the whatever as Allah gives me, but there's one guy which I've been making for many years now what Allah has not accepted.
So what is the door?
He said, You know, you know I've been humbled. The imam of Masjid of Majid Nawaz Sharif, it is my dua I've been asking Allah Allah I want to meet my mama.
But this duel has not accepted. You have ever started crying.
He started weeping.
He said because I am a must be humble.
He said Allah threw me out of his house because
he said Allah, Allah did not let me stay in his house, Allah brought me into your house.
This is your dog.
So this is the Baraka of those who followed masala Lavalle he values himself will love Mohammed Salah son
who served the deed of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam and myself when you and I were to ask you to share what your thoughts are and so on, on the assignment, which is how can we build a relationship with our life and
I want to close with these points to say that to build a relationship with Mohammed Salah to study Sierra is something that Allah has ordered us to do. It is something that we make dua in every single regard every Salah, it is something that Allah subhanaw taala gave us a guarantee that this is the way
and it is something which will fill our lives with Baraka insha Allah, ask Allah to be pleased with you and never to be displeased as Allah to accept you're coming here. ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us all
followers and true believers and true followers of ourselves Allah and fill our hearts with love for salah and to fill our lives with the Sunnah of Rasulullah
sallallahu alayhi wa he was I will make erotica.
