00:00:01--> 00:00:28

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Russia, William Gable mousseline, who Allah Allah He was heavy is one of our medical sisters. We begin with the kalam Allah subhanho data where Allah subhanaw taala sent certain ceremonies W Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa cinema Allah subhanaw taala said in the Lucha eco saloon, maybe you are living in Saudi Arabia, he will certainly move

00:00:29--> 00:00:29

along with

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

Mohammed Omar Selita

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

Majid along America Mohamed Mohamed Kamara

00:00:43--> 00:01:07

is the right of Allah he said on the audio seldom that his mama said Salatu Salam on him. Not because he needs it because this is proof that he does not need it to be with Allah subhanho wa Taala already sent Salatu Salam on him. And therefore this Salam of the people is has no precedence or value over that. But we sent the rosin salam ala Rasulillah is URL itself because it is the

00:01:08--> 00:01:13

rule and it is the responsibility of the

00:01:14--> 00:01:17

Almighty to pledge allegiance to his

00:01:18--> 00:01:40

to his Nabi and that is what why visions rock and Solomon also salah, it is the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that Allah subhanaw taala said and we know he also informed us that the one who sends salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam once Allah subhanho wa Taala will send Salam on that person 10 times. So this is the

00:01:41--> 00:01:55

again, this is the opposite of that Allah's manator is showing that if somebody sends a llama is nobody wants, Allah sends alarm on that person 10 times and therefore the more we recite the road, the more we send Zaragoza Ramona,

00:01:57--> 00:02:06

the more beneficial it is for us and that is the reason we send salatu salam because it is due and it is his right and because it is beneficial for us.

00:02:07--> 00:02:10

Today inshallah we will try to talk about the

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

qualities of the life or supervisor

00:02:16--> 00:02:17

and I have

00:02:19--> 00:02:23

identified 10 what I call jewels from the Sierra,

00:02:24--> 00:02:29

the Sierra is full of them, it is not as if there are only 10. But it is my

00:02:31--> 00:03:00

whatever I have understood that I have tried to keep that as concise as possible. So we can complete that one lecture. The reason for this, the primary and most important reason for this is because of the challenges that we as the Muslim ummah are facing in this world today. These challenges that we are facing in the world today are by no means new, they are not even particularly difficult when compared to the challenges that this ummah faced, and was able to.

00:03:04--> 00:03:37

To win those challenges in the past. So the old man has faced far more difficult situations. But for each individual, what happens during his or her lifetime has primary importance. So no matter that we can talk about our history, what is real for us is our present and therefore no matter what the Muslims did during the time of

00:03:38--> 00:04:24

the Mongols, what the Muslims did during the times of the earlier than that break up of the Embassy of tilava and so on and so forth. is at best of historical value. It is something that we can we can and should learn lessons from it is something that has value in terms of learning. But that is not our personal experience. Our personal experience is what is happening to us today. And what is happening to us today is happening at two levels it is happening at a global level. And it is also happening at a personal level. The what's happening at a personal level is a factor of what we encounter on a day to day basis ourselves as well as what the global the the effect that global

00:04:24--> 00:04:39

events have on our hearts and minds when we see them on television or we read about them and so on. Both of these are simultaneously working on our psychology. So it's very important the reason I'm saying this is very important not to get

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

bogged down by this not to feel discouraged by this not to get depressed by it. It is nothing to be depressed about or hamdulillah all challenges and everything that comes along was random. It comes with only cash. It comes to strength for us. It comes to wake us up it comes to draw us closer to Allah subhanaw taala it comes to

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

wake us up to the reality that we don't live in this world alone that all that we do in this world reaches and stays with us when we go into the next world and therefore all of these challenges are really wake up calls for us to set ourselves correct ourselves and go in the right direction. So hamdulillah all of this is good Alhamdulillah also, that if this results in as it is happening in Syria, and so on, melos rather a project the Ummah and protect all of us and protect all innocent people Muslim or not Muslim, from all forms of oppression. But if at some point in time we reach, you reach a place where you have to die. Well, the

00:05:41--> 00:06:21

the good news is that you have to die anyway. So it's nothing new. And it's not something that would not have happened anyway. But what will happen that if you are ever killed If I am ever killed, that is why we make that may Allah give our Shahada. So we make those offers, we have to expect to die with that's the only way to catch up. So if you die, and if you are killed, because you are a Muslim, that is what we have seen several incidents like that, the latest one that I heard at least was of the shahada of the imam in Queens in New York mailers or hotel room janitor for those who rather he and, and the brother who was killed with it. So if you are killed for the reason that you

00:06:21--> 00:06:57

are a Muslim, that Angelite is German, it is shahada, it is my father was manager. So therefore this has nothing to do, there is absolutely nothing in the world as it is happening, which is a reason to be frightened, which is the reason to be scared, which is the reason to be depressed. So please understand this very clearly. And also watch your language because many times I've seen, you know, videos, interviews and so on, which are taken off people in these incidents and somebody says, you know, this is very scary. It's very scary what's scary. So what's your language Don't say things like scared, there's nothing to be scared about what's what's scary?

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

What is that we scared about?

00:07:01--> 00:07:38

So we must be very clear. I mean, if you have a man if you believe Allah subhanaw taala if you believe in the ACA, then I think he was scared about we laugh at these 100 And the last one that I mentioned is very clear. It's not the last app when the when the forces of Oblivion the courage and the the people who are with them, or they gather all the tribes wherever they came to attack Medina, and it was the largest army ever assembled. Until that time, the munafo of Medina, this is exactly what they said. They said we are scared and they try to scare the Muslims as well.

00:07:39--> 00:07:54

And they try to kill them. See, this is why Mohamed Salah said I'm glad you because you followed Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam this is this is where you are now the whole of Arabia is against you and so on and so on. What What was the response to the Muslims? that I mentioned is very clearly is what

00:07:57--> 00:08:03

the Muslims said, Allah Azza rasool Allah, they said what we were promised Alhamdulillah

00:08:06--> 00:08:12

and Allah subhanaw taala Then said the only thing it increased was their Iman and water Sliva.

00:08:16--> 00:08:40

It didn't increase their fright, because they were not right. So the only thing that increased was their EBA and they're asleep their submission to Allah subhanaw taala. That is the position of the Muslim when faced with adversity when faced with danger when faced with any kind of force, which threatens to annihilate them because we understand and hydration or non hydration comes from Allah,

00:08:41--> 00:08:48

not from whatever is in front of us. That is why we are looking at the forces of the Romans in Yermak.

00:08:49--> 00:09:04

The largest of the budget than army which was assembled 200,000 Soldiers 100,000 Roman soldiers 100,000 Christian Arab soldiers from from Byzantium borough from Byzantium currently very left. So

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

you are having What's wrong with you in your DC this army here

00:09:11--> 00:09:13

have already said they're all dead.

00:09:15--> 00:09:18

So first you love then you make a statement, which makes no sense. I worry when they're all dead.

00:09:20--> 00:09:25

So what do you mean? He's aerosolized and SLM said the one was no man he's dead.

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

He said the other day was a Who's Who's afraid of dead body?

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

What are the fear with from from people who are already dead?

00:09:35--> 00:09:50

So Hamdulillah we wish the best for all the work and we continue to work for the best of all the work, but please do not ever allow. Words like this to come out of your mouth are not scared. Nobody's good. So don't even say such things if you're scared, scared of what?

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

Sal hamdulillah What's your posture? Hamdulillah this gives me an opportunity to showcase Islam. This gives me an eye

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

majority to show what Islam is this gives me an opportunity to practice Islam in such a way that people can see Islam.

00:10:08--> 00:10:17

The time has come, but we have to be able to say what the Sahaba has to say. And what did they say? They used to say Kuno become like us.

00:10:19--> 00:10:21

This is a time we need to be able to say that.

00:10:22--> 00:10:27

Look at us. Somebody says What is Islam? We should we have to be able to say, Look at me.

00:10:29--> 00:10:50

What is Islamic business, like come to my business actually words like, what is a Muslim home, like come to my home, I show you what a home like what a muslim what was like, that is what we need to do. And this is the area where having said all the nice things that I said, we have to now say some not so nice things. This is the area where the maximum amount of work needs to be done.

00:10:52--> 00:11:02

Because we are very far away from the standard that Allah subhanaw taala geladeira gave us whether it is in our normal daily lives, whether it's in

00:11:03--> 00:11:10

incidents of times of celebration, whether it's in times of grief,

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

whether it's in festivals, whether it's in marriages, whether it's in our businesses, we are very far away from the standard that Allah subhanaw taala gave us and that's the reason why I thought it's important to remind myself when you have what is the standard. And inshallah that's what we will attempt to do to just to give you a list of the qualities of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and this is not in order of proceedings, although I would say that mercy is the number one quality, no doubt about that. But it's not as if one is more important than the other. It's a list of 10 things. Mercy arising out of which is forgiveness, which comes from confidence which comes from courage,

00:11:53--> 00:12:08

which comes from somewhere which is fortitude, resulting in reliable, whether we see success or we see failure in worldly terms we have, we are not only not only do we accept it, but we are pleased with the rhythm of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:09--> 00:12:42

generosity of spirit and abundance, mentality, kindness, truthfulness, and trustworthiness. These are the 10 qualities that are visible from this era of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And these are things which as in everything in Islam, these are things which are the keys for success in dunya will occur. In Islam, there is nothing that is gives us success in the Afra, at the expense of success in the dunya. This is not in Islam.

00:12:43--> 00:12:54

You in Islam, what gives success in the akhira also gives success in the dunya. What gives failure in the akhira is also failure in the dunya. Both are equally true.

00:12:56--> 00:13:35

So this is something that we need to be clear about because a lot of times people feel that somehow if they follow Islam fully that they will fail in this dunya even though they may succeed in the ACA, and this is the root of all corruption. This is the root of all our problems in life, where we live therefore, what Allah subhanaw taala has asked us to do and we take up things that Allah has privated us because we feel somehow that if I don't do that I will fail in this world. No, you will fail in this world if you disobey Allah, you will fail in this world and you will fail in the hereafter if it is a well it's better than if you obey Allah subhanaw taala if you follow the Sunnah

00:13:35--> 00:13:40

of Muhammad Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam, you will succeed in this world and the next word.

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

So be very clear in your mind. Now

00:13:46--> 00:13:51

why must we study the Zerah at all? What is the benefit of studying the Sera?

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

Allah's route during this is a very one of

00:13:58--> 00:14:36

ourselves and Allah subhanaw taala said, calling condom to hipbone Allah Azza wa oni you have been qumola welfare locums roba Kumala Hoefer Rahim Allah has it say O Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to those who claim to love Allah subhanho wa Taala and we will let me make follow me make my Atiba Imitate me in which things how much it's a blanket overstatement. Imitate me emulate me in what in everything. Allah did not say emulate tell them to emulate you in Salah tell them to emulate you in business tell them why mmm emulate you in your

00:14:38--> 00:14:46

domestic life at home or as a head of state or as the head of the army. No. Emulate me in everything that I do.

00:14:48--> 00:14:57

Then what will happen? What is the result? What is the value of emulating Muhammad Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam in everything we do, then Allah will love you

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

see the beauty of bad luck

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

Allah is not saying that you will be successful in this world that you will be successful in the law. Then you will get Jana No, Allah will love you

00:15:10--> 00:15:24

and that's why I always say we need to sit with the collab of Allah subhanho Daraa and take this one eye and take that one sprays you your webcam, Allah, Allah will love you to sit with this phrase

00:15:25--> 00:15:28

and imagine what is the meaning of Allah will love me

00:15:32--> 00:15:42

that is why the garb of Allah is not simply do we read the you read the we don't even read the meaning May Allah protect us but even if you read the meaning please don't think that that is the job is done so it's not even started.

00:15:44--> 00:15:48

You did if you did not read the meaning that I don't know what what to call it, but even if you read the meaning.

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

We need to sit and reflect.

00:15:54--> 00:15:58

Allah subhanaw taala said this, if Allah Tada Barun and Quran

00:16:01--> 00:16:01

Allah did not say

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

do not read the

00:16:06--> 00:16:09

Quran, Allah say do not make the Quran the Quran.

00:16:10--> 00:16:25

He didn't say don't they read the Quran? No. Do they not reflect on what is the point? The point is to sit and think and reflect and go inside yourself and say what is the meaning of you who will call Allah? If Allah loves me? What does it mean?

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

How does it feel?

00:16:33--> 00:16:48

And how will another only one way find me anywhere else in the Quran? Where Allah subhanaw taala use this term you have IpCO Allah with anything other than the emulation and the etbr Mohammed Salah Allah

00:16:50--> 00:17:12

find anyone in jazva Mila Allah did not sell a villa view. Inshallah Allah did not sell love it love you it has in Amara in fasting in karate Angelica, Allah did not say Allah will love you, all of these are wonderful activities, all of these activities insha Allah Musa will get us amazing rewards.

00:17:13--> 00:17:19

But Allah did not sell our interview. Allah said Allah will love you only and only in one thing and what is the one thing

00:17:21--> 00:17:26

and Ulation of Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Azza wa Mohamed salah,

00:17:27--> 00:17:40

gets you the hope of Allah Jalla Jalla do and it's not somebody's claim. It is not me saying this out of my love for Allah and is no, this is the kalam of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:17:41--> 00:17:47

even Rasul Allah is Allah alayhi salam did not say this, Allah Himself said this your common law,

00:17:48--> 00:17:51

he was gonna use the kalam of Allah.

00:17:52--> 00:18:03

Even if even if Allah had promised us this in any hurry, we would have believed it without any problem. But this is the actual Caliph of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada you become Allah

00:18:05--> 00:18:17

because you make the emulation of Mohammed Salah that is the reason why and then what happens when that happens. Yes, we're lagoons robot. Which which sins like everything?

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

Yeah, fella comes on over Nova. Allah will forgive your sins, how many seats

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

Allah have a photo

00:18:28--> 00:18:40

that is the reason why it is important, absolutely critically essential to study the Syrah of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu listen, because we need

00:18:41--> 00:18:46

Please sit and reflect on this thing. We need the love of Allah.

00:18:48--> 00:18:53

How much we didn't love Allah. We literally need it even more than we need life.

00:18:54--> 00:18:57

Because this life can give us one of two things.

00:18:59--> 00:19:06

This life can give us insha Allah Jana this life can give us inshallah the opportunity to do good deeds, but this life can also give us the HANA.

00:19:07--> 00:19:08

potential is there.

00:19:10--> 00:19:15

potential is there we ask Allah to save us from that. But potential is there but the love of Allah

00:19:16--> 00:19:18

love Allah can give us only one thing.

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

The poor man hope of Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:22--> 00:19:25

success in this world success in the era of no doubt.

00:19:28--> 00:19:36

That is the reason because how can you emulate something you do not know. Why am I studying the Syrah because I have to practice this year

00:19:38--> 00:19:44

and that's the reason why we study the serum. Now, the qualities of Rasul Allah is

00:19:47--> 00:19:54

the which I mentioned, as I mentioned, there also, there is not it's not a mutually exclusive list of qualities.

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

They all intertwine the rise out of it.

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

each other, and therefore they are composite in that sense. Second thing is that

00:20:08--> 00:20:14

it is unique to the soul as a wrestler, that simultaneously he had all of these qualities.

00:20:15--> 00:20:21

You might find, for example, somebody who has a lot of, you know, a very kind heart, but they're not particularly courageous.

00:20:23--> 00:20:33

They won't get frightened of things, but find somebody who's extremely courageous, but the heart is hot, the heart is hot. That was quite quite often people who are physically very brave,

00:20:35--> 00:20:36

they have a lot of trouble being kinda,

00:20:38--> 00:20:57

they might feel that but you know, the heart heart becomes hard, that's a it's not, it's not necessarily that should happen, but it tends to happen, you might have somebody who has a lot of knowledge, but one of the things which we need to guard which come with knowledge is arrogance.

00:20:59--> 00:21:02

So not have knowledge, but then no humility.

00:21:05--> 00:21:05

With

00:21:06--> 00:21:13

all of these qualities, which I mentioned our word with him simultaneously and that is why this is one of the

00:21:14--> 00:21:29

unique things about the province of Salem and also our hamdulillah it is true for all the services ahead for the Sahaba for all people who are connected to Allah subhanaw taala that the more you know them, the more you love them.

00:21:31--> 00:22:02

Normally, this is not true in English, we say familiarity breeds contempt. So people look nice from from a distance. But when you get close to them, then you discover they have feet of clay and you know, you'll discover things about them which are not complimentary and so you're used as a disillusion mentor, you know, oh my god, I thought this person was so wonderful. And then I discovered that he's actually not that great. But when the products are awesome, this was not true. The more people got close to him, the more they

00:22:04--> 00:22:04

they used to love it.

00:22:07--> 00:22:16

Thirdly, Rasul Allah is Allah seldom. Allah subhanaw taala gave us the serializer Salam as an example.

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

Allah's rather gave us the Bazzara Salam as a as an example.

00:22:22--> 00:22:48

He's also a hashanah Allah subhanaw taala told us to follow, and this example good for all time. And therefore Allah subhanho wa Taala created the messages of a seller with special qualities that would give him this, that will make him this wonderful example for all of mankind to follow until the Day of Judgment is the beauty of this character, that you don't even have to be a Muslim, to follow and to become like Muhammad.

00:22:49--> 00:23:33

Obviously, in the most critical aspect of being like masala, Salah is the issue of Dahveed it is the issue of worshiping Allah, but in terms of his character, in terms of his manners, in terms of his Mamilla in these dealings and so on, anyone can behave like Mohamed Salah Salem and you have a beautiful example to follow. And we have even in this world today, which is particularly nasty and corrupt world that we have, but even in that world today, there are many examples, not one. There are many examples of non Muslims people a lot of who are not even Muslim, who are who behave like an who have some of the aspects of the character of Rasulullah sallallahu. Even though they even though

00:23:33--> 00:24:17

they don't say that what they are doing is that they are following Mohamed salah, and they're not saying that, but you can see the reflection of the character of Muhammad salah, of kindness, of compassion, of honesty of integrity, of courage in those people. In some cases it is in those societies in those countries. And you have a beautiful system that people are living even today this is true. Now imagine how much more how much more necessary it is for Muslims to be like that. We are not only supposed to follow by ourselves seldom we are supposed to become because of guidance for everybody else. And that's the reason why Allah subhanaw taala said, lockup Canada comfy Rasulullah

00:24:17--> 00:24:28

he was Wartune Hassan verily for you. The true example is the example of Mohammed Salah Salem, I submit to you by brothers and sisters that the

00:24:30--> 00:24:47

success and longevity of people and civilizations is not in their lifespan but it is in the ideas that they come with. It's not in material wealth, but it is in their spirituality, it is in their connection with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:24:49--> 00:24:58

If you look at the great civilizations of the world, those civilizations have gone a long time ago. But what has lasted what has lasted are the ideas that they came with

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

and

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

That is also true of the

00:25:02--> 00:25:14

Islamic or Muslim civilization. And that's the reason why we need to focus on ourselves. Look at our own spirituality, look at our own connection with Allah Subhana Allah geladeira

00:25:15--> 00:25:21

and his connection with Allah comes through the emulation of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.

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

We're talking about mercy as the quality of

00:25:29--> 00:26:24

as the number one quality of Muhammad Salah is. Now Mercy comes from Mercy is the very reason why Allah subhanaw taala sent Muhammad Rasool Allah is where I was rather than I said ova Illa Rahmatullah Alameen. Knives if you if you look at his eye in its sense of grammar, Allah subhanaw taala is starting with Nephi like in the Karima La Ilaha there is no unworthy of worship is Allah except Allah, which serves to emphasize the statement that is being made. So even here, Allah say wa Sanaka and we have not sent you ill except as Rama Talib Alameen as a mercy to all of creation parameterless Allah we not even all of mankind so not only is Allah not saying oh ma Salah gala

00:26:24--> 00:26:36

Hatha loosely mean Allah is not even say mama Salah gala Raha leanness Allah is not saying we sent you we did not send you except at the mercy of of Muslims we did not send you except as a mercy for you won't be no

00:26:39--> 00:26:48

enemy Muhammad Rasool Allah salah is a mercy to all of creation, all that we know and all that we don't know

00:26:50--> 00:26:55

the exact nature of his mercy How is he a mercy to Jupiter and how is he a mercy to

00:26:56--> 00:27:48

the stars and how is he a mercy to the sky and how is he we don't know the how exactly but we know the statement of his Rob Gemma who is also the creator of Jupiter and the stars and the Mars and and and Uranus and so on. That he said jelajah Allahu wa salam ala I'ma tell it Alamy that Allah subhanho wa Taala said that he said Musa Salam. And he said he has sent you as nothing except a mercy to all of Greece. And that's the reason why we have to study the life of Masasa. Now the mercy of Surah Surah Selim is famous, there is quite literally no example that I can give you which, which can, which has a parallel in today's word, because you look at the life of a sorcerer, Selim his

00:27:48--> 00:27:49

entire period in Makkah.

00:27:51--> 00:27:58

The period of reseller not the entire life in Makkah, but the period of reseller is a period where

00:27:59--> 00:28:07

he received only opposition, he received only bad treatment, he received only oppression from his own people.

00:28:09--> 00:28:14

You know, one is to face oppression, and one is to face tension and so on from strangers.

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

It's not nice, but it is comparatively easier to bear because you say, strangers will what? What else do we expect, but to have to face that from your own people? That is very difficult.

00:28:29--> 00:28:38

Because you have an expectation that you know, you this is my brother, this is my friend, this is my zone. So now you get ill treatment from them. That is very painful.

00:28:39--> 00:28:44

And that's what he got. He got the worst treatment from his own people.

00:28:45--> 00:28:51

The closest to him I will have who was I will have Ebola was His own uncle

00:28:52--> 00:29:04

Mmusi uncle we must understand the meaning of Uncle father's own brother in the Arabian cultural tribal context.

00:29:06--> 00:29:25

Today, we don't have that I mean, it's very difficult for people like us to even understand that because we do not have a tribal culture or at least we don't have that kind of tribal culture. We are we are we have our own version of tribal culture. But we don't have that kind of an uncle there is quite literally in the position of the father

00:29:26--> 00:29:28

even to today vote or even if you go to

00:29:29--> 00:29:35

the non urbanized Arabs and I have some I have some very dear friends in,

00:29:36--> 00:29:57

in in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere who are Babu who are people from the people of the of the soil and to see them behave to see the young people behave with their uncles to see them. It's amazing. Unbelievable you can you haven't even you I can tell you very clearly that in this country in India, you do not even know the meaning of other

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

You haven't even

00:30:00--> 00:30:15

smell the fragrance or you don't even know what other means. You want to see other words, the Arabs go and see how the Arabs who are true to their tradition, see how the young ones behave in their family to the elders.

00:30:18--> 00:30:30

Even today, despite all the change and all the corruption and whatnot, there are these things which are there with them. So you can imagine what is must have been in the type of research has been there, somebody like that,

00:30:31--> 00:30:48

who I have respected so much, and who I have treated like this now does against me, and because my worst enemy, what kind of pain and that's the reason why I said, every, every Nabhi suffered, in the path of Allah subhanaw taala everything that we faced with, and he said, I have faced pain more than anyone else.

00:30:50--> 00:30:57

So if you think about it, now, you must say, Well, you know, there will be a world physically beaten and tortured and killed and so on. But that didn't happen.

00:30:59--> 00:31:16

He did suffer some of that, like in dive and so on. But it didn't happen in that context of you know, being imprisoned during a turn to prison like goes why CERAM are being tortured and so on. So what was suffering, that suffering is psychological suffering, it is mental suffering, it is suffering of breaking of the heart,

00:31:17--> 00:31:52

the the you have to understand the goose and the strength of the heart. And this comes directly when Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala strengthens the hearts of Zambia, because without that the work of the Board cannot be done. And that's the reason why it's very important for us to develop this mental and spiritual and psychological courage that comes only and only with connection with Allah subhanaw taala if you really want to be Muslims, and if you really want to do the work of Dawa, if you want to continue to work in the face of discouragement, in the face of opposition, you have to have a very, very big heart

00:31:55--> 00:31:56

otherwise you cannot survive.

00:31:58--> 00:32:04

So this is the mercy of take some of the body for example, now, that is which all of us have admitted

00:32:07--> 00:32:19

that there was a woman who had a cat a pet cat, she locked it up, the cat couldn't get access to it or somewhere the cat couldn't get access to food and water and so on the cat died and Allah will give her Janome for that.

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

A cat

00:32:23--> 00:32:26

who didn't murder the cat the woman was careless about the cat.

00:32:27--> 00:32:28

There was no sense that

00:32:29--> 00:32:30

it was a thirsty dog.

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

And he was trying to get some water water was water was at the bottom of her well a man was passing by sod his dog in this state of wanting good water. So the man he had no you know you utensil so he tied a string to a shoe and a dip the shoe in the well and he brought the shoe up and gave the water in the shoe to the dog to drink and Allah Samantha will give Jana to this man for this reason.

00:32:59--> 00:33:00

giving water to a dog

00:33:03--> 00:33:17

I'm giving you these examples because there are many other examples of the of the merchant seller but Omar Salah caldera hotel Halloween driver also for the cats and dogs are also for the trees rather for the environment run or for society rather for everything.

00:33:19--> 00:33:29

So even though this may look like a small action, it shows that not as bad action, every action that pleases Allah subhanaw taala is a big action, every action that displeases Allah's wrath is also the action.

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

So don't imagine that it's a small one

00:33:35--> 00:33:36

because it pleases the Last Mountain.

00:33:39--> 00:34:02

Walters they will have to Wallace a year it viability I sell for either Larry Binaca or by no other Wharton Ghana, who will be going heavy. Allah said the good deed and the evil deed are not equal they cannot be equal. So, what must you do repel the evil deed with here acid with something which is the best.

00:34:05--> 00:34:20

So, if somebody does something you will do what must you know repair that give that back with something which is the best then what will happen? Unless there is then the same person who was your worst enemy will become your greatest friend.

00:34:24--> 00:34:25

Now in the life of a seller

00:34:26--> 00:34:29

I want to give you I can give you many examples, but let me give you one

00:34:31--> 00:34:36

one of his worst enemies. One of his biggest enemies was who I was.

00:34:38--> 00:34:53

I was here till the end about Sofia Radi Allahu Anhu did not leave a single store under in trying to malign the reputation of Mr. Seller in trying to harm him physically in trying to kill him he did everything possible.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

Allah subhanaw taala protected is Debbie SallAllahu Sallam so it was and could not succeed. But it is he did everything

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

One of the, one of the most wonderful stories in this context is

00:35:05--> 00:35:18

I was meeting with Hercules, the king of the bargain by the picking of Byzantium, where Heraclitus heard about.

00:35:19--> 00:35:43

So he said to them, he said to the people, who are these people who claim that a prophet has been sent to them? So they said, they are these Arabs. So he said, Find me some of those people. That's what happened. And I was given a few of his be a few of his companions. They were in Palestine at that time they were trading. So the Romans came, and they found them and they brought them to

00:35:44--> 00:35:50

Iraqis. So in the court of the Eastern Roman emperor,

00:35:51--> 00:36:23

hierarchy, I said, Who is the leader among you? So I was answered, I'm the leader. So he said to us, when come forward, he said to the people stand behind him, I'm going to ask him questions. And if he does alive, then you signal to me. So now it was a funny situation where he is in front, he does not know what people are doing behind his back. And the king has said to them, that if this man tells a lie signal to me, supposedly I've got you know, he was in a position where now it was a very dicey position.

00:36:24--> 00:36:31

So Iraklis asked him, and this is the part of the story of the Sierra which we should read, and we should study he asked him a lot of questions.

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

See the way for example, he asked him, Who are the people who follow Him.

00:36:37--> 00:36:56

So, I was offended only the poor, the people who follow Him are people who are poor, or no place in society, I was giving answers which are true, but also the answers which he hopes will thereof hierarchies. So, here's the king of the Romans, who follows this man and nobody important all these poor people.

00:36:58--> 00:37:04

Then he said, Have you ever had a conflict with a meaning in what have you faced him in war?

00:37:05--> 00:37:12

That was invented, yes. Is the what was the result? I was another like I said, sometimes even sometimes we will.

00:37:15--> 00:37:20

So, his, perhaps his intention was you know, if he was unhappy, he would win all the time.

00:37:21--> 00:37:31

So sometimes we win. So what can what can not be is this who loses in what some of you are trying to do as much damage as possible, right.

00:37:32--> 00:37:34

So similarly asked many questions. Then

00:37:36--> 00:37:38

Heraclius asked him and said,

00:37:39--> 00:37:50

Have you had a treaty with him? And this was after Slavia so Raglan said he said yes, we have a treaty with him. He said, Have you broken the treaty, supposedly, and said Not yet.

00:37:53--> 00:37:58

He would have said he's not broken, but is not yet meaning that there is a possibility might break it.

00:38:00--> 00:38:12

Later on, now, the result all of this was that at the end of that hierarchy, you said this, all of what you have said, and the characteristics of a true prophet

00:38:16--> 00:38:22

had at least was learned man, he was a Christian. He says, All of what you have said are the characteristics of a true prophet.

00:38:25--> 00:38:28

He said, even Jesus who followed it, the poor

00:38:31--> 00:38:32

who are against him, the wealthy.

00:38:35--> 00:38:41

And he said, and he rightly said that if I could meet him, he's that I would wash his feet

00:38:46--> 00:39:03

he never became Muslim, but this is what his statement was to I was later on I was aware of the law who said that in that whole conversation I tried to do as much damage to my was set up as I could, but the only thing I managed to say was not yet

00:39:05--> 00:39:06

I couldn't say anything else.

00:39:10--> 00:39:14

That's another thing this is Here was a man who treated us or US restroom so badly.

00:39:16--> 00:39:21

But what was the treatment also, as a result, some troubles when when I was away and was in his power?

00:39:23--> 00:39:27

See, one is to be nice to somebody because you really have no choice. What will what will you do?

00:39:29--> 00:39:40

Whoever is being nasty view is too powerful. So you can't do anything to him. You maybe you can make faces behind his back or something. But other than that, what can you do? But the point is that when somebody who has harmed you

00:39:42--> 00:39:45

is in your power and you have absolute control over what you can do to him.

00:39:48--> 00:39:58

And could have had I was killed, he could have, you know, have he would have had him executed and he would have done anything he wanted. After Hatanaka I was aware Madonna was in his control.

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

I

00:40:01--> 00:40:06

didn't have to do it personally could have simply signaled to somebody they were it would have it would have been done.

00:40:07--> 00:40:08

But what do you do there was

00:40:09--> 00:40:22

he forgave me under the law. No. He announced and said that I was oviya and his family are safe. He said, Whoever goes into the house, the opposite VR, whoever takes refuge in the house, I was very safe. I was

00:40:23--> 00:40:29

my house is not so big. All the people of Makkah cannot come inside. He said, Whoever stays in his own house is safe.

00:40:30--> 00:40:32

Just don't go out into the street.

00:40:33--> 00:40:39

Because he didn't he didn't want clashes, and he didn't want a civil war happening in the in the night. So he said, Just stay inside your hopes.

00:40:42--> 00:40:51

And he said this on the prompting of hours, we are not alone. What was the result? I was aware another Lando became one of the greatest supporters of

00:40:54--> 00:40:55

the eyes of the Quran.

00:40:56--> 00:40:58

Same thing, we'll call it early.

00:40:59--> 00:41:05

And I mentioned that elsewhere in this series, but same thing with how to do it same thing with our blasts.

00:41:07--> 00:41:08

Same thing with our Vashi.

00:41:12--> 00:41:19

Returning please understand, to return bad for bad is justice.

00:41:21--> 00:41:30

Meaning that if you are harmed to demand compensation, to demand retribution, to demand that the person who harmed you should be punished. This is the law.

00:41:32--> 00:41:39

There is no nothing to feel apologetic about that. There's nothing to hesitate about that it is your right if somebody murders

00:41:41--> 00:41:57

someone you know close to you a part of the family then it is your right to demand compensation. It is your demand. It's your right to demand that the person that the culprit the border must be executed. It's alright if you say that the Quran uses right.

00:41:59--> 00:42:02

But then the Quran having said that Allah Subhana Allah said but if you forgive,

00:42:05--> 00:42:24

I will get this is the beauty of the color models rather even where Allah subhanaw taala is prescribing the punishment very clearly. Allah lenses but if you forgive and forgiveness in Islam is what forgiveness Islam is not only will you not insist on the person's execution, you will also not even take blood money

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

freely

00:42:28--> 00:42:29

for the sake of Allah.

00:42:32--> 00:42:38

And that is what also the sorcerer emulated. So mercy which we accept all of that

00:42:39--> 00:42:40

is not justice.

00:42:42--> 00:42:44

Mercy is positive injustice.

00:42:46--> 00:42:48

Mercy is to give more than

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

is do.

00:42:51--> 00:42:54

Mercy is to give more than what is do.

00:42:56--> 00:43:10

We ask Allah for His mercy. We do not ask Allah for justice. We don't ask Allah for other We ask Allah for mercy. We ask Allah to forgive us even though we do not deserve forgiveness. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to give us Jana even though we do not deserve Jana.

00:43:12--> 00:43:16

We ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect us even though we do not protect the laws of Allah.

00:43:17--> 00:43:21

We ask Allah to help us even though we do not do anything to help us.

00:43:23--> 00:43:39

That does not mean we continue like this, we will do our best inshallah make that near that we will change our ways. But we will obviously never fulfill the hug of Allah subhanaw taala yet we ask Allah to forgive us because that is his sham

00:43:40--> 00:43:47

Allahumma Inaka who would carry moon to handball for funny, fun.

00:43:50--> 00:43:54

Allah you are the one who forgives and you are the glorious one.

00:43:55--> 00:43:59

And you will love to forgive. Therefore forgive me and forgive us

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

all forgive me because that is what you like to do. Not because I deserve forgiveness forgive me because you'd like to

00:44:08--> 00:44:09

indulge yourself.

00:44:11--> 00:44:13

Make yourself happy.

00:44:14--> 00:44:17

What makes you happy forgiveness isn't working.

00:44:19--> 00:44:21

As a bad Bunty Hey, Mary, Catherine.

00:44:26--> 00:44:27

This is the mercy

00:44:29--> 00:44:37

and that's what we ask Allah subhanaw taala for and for that it is necessary. That's why we sort of said, show mercy to those on the face of the earth and the one in the heaven will show mercy to you.

00:44:40--> 00:44:45

We go to the next one which is forgiveness. And forgiveness is that quality which comes out of mercy.

00:44:49--> 00:44:57

The first thing to understand about forgiveness is that forgiveness is only possible when the crime has been established.

00:44:59--> 00:45:00

There's no forgiving

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

That's possible but somebody has not done anything wrong.

00:45:03--> 00:45:07

Right? So if I can tell you please forgive me like many of these people, they sent this

00:45:09--> 00:45:18

formula or before Amazon was on this, this message or WhatsApp? If I have done anything Forgive me what what are the bad? Have you done? I'm not done.

00:45:19--> 00:45:22

If you don't even know whether you have done or not done, what are you asking for even this one?

00:45:24--> 00:45:31

So forgiveness, the question of forgiveness arises only when the guilt or the crime or the offense has been established.

00:45:33--> 00:45:39

The reason I'm saying this is that many times, if you tell somebody was bugging the mass market,

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

to get what what do people say? When the Karana carnival came after?

00:45:48--> 00:45:59

It was over he did not he did that thing for you. If he had not done anything, what are you forgiving? So forgiveness happens only when the crime or the offense has been established.

00:46:00--> 00:46:01

Number one,

00:46:02--> 00:46:06

which means what? That punishment is deserved.

00:46:07--> 00:46:15

That you can give punishment. You have the power to give punishment, or to see the punishment is given. Here you choose to forgive.

00:46:17--> 00:46:23

And that's why forgiveness is such a wonderful thing and that is why this is the quality of Allah subhanaw taala geladeira.

00:46:25--> 00:46:31

Crime is established, we have transgressed against Allah. Allah Samantha has the power to

00:46:33--> 00:46:38

dig in the ground has the power to take revenge has the power to give punishment, but I'm not used to forgive.

00:46:40--> 00:46:45

And this is the quality that Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam can take many examples, but take five.

00:46:47--> 00:46:49

Now is there other than goes there? What is his intention?

00:46:51--> 00:47:21

I'm going to draw attention, draw your attention when we come to Dominica to some of these things. So remember that. What is it? Is his intention good or bad? What is going to dive? Good? Is intention for himself? What is it for Islam? For Islam? He doesn't have to go for it. He is not going to try to create another kingdom or, you know, to get some more votes or something. No. He's going to die if only and only for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Jelena. Can you question it sincerity? What is sincere? Did you have your class?

00:47:22--> 00:47:26

Dumb question, whoa, if the property was in a bad boy class, there was a plus.

00:47:28--> 00:47:31

So all the factors, did he make enough effort?

00:47:33--> 00:47:39

He would have said people at that at the time Ross was also meant to drive our Gardella who was Muslim,

00:47:40--> 00:47:52

Mr. vinyasa Delano, Muslim, there are many Muslims in Makkah, and people who are significant people, it's not as if the only you know people who have no power, there are people who are significant and respected recognize,

00:47:54--> 00:47:55

he would have sent any one of them,

00:47:56--> 00:47:57

he would have sent a group of them.

00:47:59--> 00:48:00

But he chose to go himself.

00:48:01--> 00:48:13

So here we have a situation where intention is beyond question. Sincere, it is beyond question. Purpose is beyond question. Effort is beyond question. But what is the result of that journey?

00:48:14--> 00:48:31

I don't use the term failure because it was not failure. What the body did was not failure. But the world the situation, the circumstances that he faced, that he faced, were circumstances which were all negative. He was abused, he was reviled, He was assaulted, he was wounded.

00:48:35--> 00:48:35

All of this happen

00:48:37--> 00:48:45

physically that we can see what happened to his heart. How did he feel that in his spirit, Allah knows, that's between Allah and then he's also

00:48:47--> 00:48:51

been talking about forgiveness. So now, crime established we are out.

00:48:54--> 00:48:55

Next issue,

00:48:56--> 00:48:59

do you have the power to retaliate?

00:49:01--> 00:49:23

Allah subhanho wa salam, Salam goes into the, into the garden. And I'm not I'm not telling you the whole story in detail, first of all, because you know that secondly, we don't have time in the lecture, which was done when we have time we do that some of the time, but he went into the garden is given some water, some grapes and so on and so on, then evolved into sudo, then he makes dua to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:49:24--> 00:49:35

And he makes the duart. On his router, I described his condition he described on his Rantala how we can powerless he was what he tried to do. And then he said, but I will continue to work

00:49:37--> 00:49:38

until you are pleased.

00:49:41--> 00:49:46

He's not saying that, you know, I'm sorry. You gave me this job can't be done. Sorry. Go find somebody else. No.

00:49:47--> 00:49:53

He's saying I will get yelled at this is all what happened to me. But yeah, Rob, I will continue to work

00:49:54--> 00:50:00

until you are pleased. If the whole world is displeased with me. It doesn't matter as long as you

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

To please and if you are not pleased with me that it doesn't matter if the whole world is pleased with me or not makes no difference.

00:50:07--> 00:50:14

What was the result of this debate this ROM comes along with another, another Moloch another angel comes

00:50:16--> 00:50:18

up says yada yada so Allah Europe has heard you.

00:50:20--> 00:50:23

And your Rob has said this Malak, he has sent his angel

00:50:25--> 00:50:35

and he has put this angel under your command, command him and he will do whatever you tell him. The reason I asked him who are you or what can you do? He said,

00:50:37--> 00:50:46

I am the Moloch I am the angel in charge of the mountains that we sell ourselves that what can you do? He said I can join the two mountains on either side of time.

00:50:48--> 00:50:50

He said there will be no time

00:50:53--> 00:50:55

there will not even be a memory of time.

00:50:56--> 00:50:59

He said every living thing in life will be finished.

00:51:01--> 00:51:05

These people around you your RAM has given you this bar.

00:51:06--> 00:51:15

Crime established the power to retaliate established and remember if Rosaura had used this power would Allah smarter ask him a question No

00:51:17--> 00:51:20

no unless we're gonna give they do this.

00:51:22--> 00:51:25

So now after doing this Buddha said Why did you do better the question of why

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

do this

00:51:30--> 00:51:34

What was his response? He is my Rob has not sent me to kill me.

00:51:36--> 00:51:38

My Rob has not sent me to kill people.

00:51:40--> 00:51:46

He's my daughter. My rub is that even if these people do not accept my message that their children should accept

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

them course history is witness that happened.

00:51:53--> 00:51:57

Even those people accepted Islam after some time, but then the children

00:51:58--> 00:52:01

from among who is Muhammad Ben Carson

00:52:03--> 00:52:03

is

00:52:05--> 00:52:08

one of the greatest generals of the urban OMA

00:52:09--> 00:52:12

for Dhamaka. Same story.

00:52:13--> 00:52:33

People who troubled him people who was why they killed his daughter, people who confiscated took away his wealth. Not only are all of the people who migrated from Mecca to Medina, their wealth was confiscated. They were harmed. Many of us have our source and salam died.

00:52:35--> 00:52:48

Okay, so I can understand you did not ask for those who killed so why are they Allah Han Han? Or yas or the Allahu Akbar? I was alkyl damages that already been killed in, in bother.

00:52:49--> 00:52:55

But what was wrong with asking for compensation for property which was

00:52:57--> 00:53:04

you know, unjustly confiscated? What was wrong with asking for compensation for money which was taken?

00:53:05--> 00:53:07

Okay, you didn't ask or ask for the people.

00:53:10--> 00:53:14

And there is an autonomous governor of Anambra. He can order it and it will happen.

00:53:17--> 00:53:22

What does he do? He stands on the door of a car, and he calls the people so as they come running.

00:53:26--> 00:53:27

We will know His army commander.

00:53:29--> 00:53:30

So then he says, What shall I do with you?

00:53:33--> 00:53:35

So they'll carry

00:53:36--> 00:53:37

if you look at him.

00:53:41--> 00:53:44

They said you are Kareem, you are you have AIDS.

00:53:45--> 00:53:46

And your father as is

00:53:47--> 00:53:52

the people who followed all of that when they were chasing him out of Makkah.

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

But now he has power. So

00:53:59--> 00:54:03

that was another unknown unknown tilaka. Today you are free.

00:54:07--> 00:54:12

He decided to add also those of we use over extrinsic to do is brothers.

00:54:13--> 00:54:15

He said today there is no blame on you.

00:54:17--> 00:54:18

Today, there's nobody when

00:54:19--> 00:54:28

you're free. And that's why the people who were in Makkah at that time are called Abdullah. They're called the freed slaves of Muhammad Sallallahu.

00:54:30--> 00:54:32

Because according to the law of the land,

00:54:34--> 00:54:43

when a city was conquered, it was the law of the land that the men could be killed and that the women and children could be taken as slaves

00:54:44--> 00:54:50

themselves and did nothing of that. Not a single person was killed. Nobody was enslaved.

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

He did not even ask for compensation.

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

That is the meaning of forgiveness.

00:55:01--> 00:55:11

Caribbean worry responsible for not the death of one person but the death of 70 Sahaabah in a hot 70s app,

00:55:12--> 00:55:14

among whom is

00:55:15--> 00:55:17

Hamza bin Abdullah Metallica della

00:55:20--> 00:55:21

Rasul Allah has an

00:55:22--> 00:55:33

uncle and because he was Uncle by religion, but he was the same age and the results are observed with a companion of Boris or salah, one of his greatest and closest companions, one of his greatest supporters,

00:55:34--> 00:55:35

a huge strength to Islam.

00:55:37--> 00:55:44

He also died in the same but to current very responsible for that when current when it comes to Medina, what is the treatment?

00:55:45--> 00:55:57

When he hears when they tell him that Colin and our grass are coming to Medina, he orders and says nobody will say anything to either of them, which is criticism.

00:55:59--> 00:56:01

Because 70 People Who Died their families are in Medina.

00:56:03--> 00:56:06

He's no one will say anything, they will not criticize him.

00:56:09--> 00:56:10

One of the greatest enemies of Islam.

00:56:11--> 00:56:15

The two of them come and also stands up from his place.

00:56:17--> 00:56:34

And he puts a shawl on the ground and tells Harlan to come and sit on the shore. So, to the best of my knowledge from my reading of the Sierra, he did this only on two bills. One was for Fatima Zahra Delana, his daughter, who he loved so much, and the other one was the one

00:56:35--> 00:56:37

who stood up to receive them.

00:56:38--> 00:56:45

And he put a shawl on the ground and he made them sit on the shawl as a mark of honor. Who is doing it too.

00:56:46--> 00:56:47

And then it doesn't end with that.

00:56:49--> 00:56:53

He then makes Hyland abnormally the commander in chief of the army.

00:56:55--> 00:57:00

And he doesn't then with that, he then gives Colin with only the title of Saifullah.

00:57:07--> 00:57:09

On the same heartbeat of Iran,

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

many years later,

00:57:12--> 00:57:16

many years later, Khalid Golan who is dying

00:57:18--> 00:57:20

and is dying in his home, his name on his bed.

00:57:22--> 00:57:24

last moments of his life, so he's crying.

00:57:25--> 00:57:34

A friend comes to him and he says why are you afraid of death? Because no one is me afraid of death. He said I looked for death.

00:57:35--> 00:57:47

He said I went searching for death. In every battle. He's or Allah is Witness. There is not an inch of my body from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet, which does not have the wound of a sword or a spear.

00:57:49--> 00:57:58

To every single part of my body has some wounds, taken in some battle. But today I'm dying here in my bed like a camel.

00:57:59--> 00:58:11

Like a camel dies in its table is that I wanted shahada FISA we did in the path of Allah in the battlefields, fighting against the enemies of Islam, but today I'm dying in my pinch.

00:58:12--> 00:58:13

That's why I'm weeping.

00:58:17--> 00:58:25

So it's a wonderful thing. That's the reason why it is good to have good friends, friends who are connected to Allah and friends who have wisdom.

00:58:27--> 00:58:33

His friend said to him, he said Allah subhanaw taala will give you the chance.

00:58:35--> 00:58:44

He said but remember this he said your fate was sealed that day. Russell as the seller gave you the title Saifullah.

00:58:45--> 00:58:54

He said your fate was sealed the day Russell called you the sword of Allah. He said happened the sword of love for the battle

00:58:59--> 00:59:01

he said you could not have been killed

00:59:02--> 00:59:06

you could not have been killed no enemy could have killed you.

00:59:07--> 00:59:10

After I gave you this title, Saifullah

00:59:12--> 00:59:12

sort of

00:59:13--> 00:59:15

said your fate was sealed the day when

00:59:17--> 00:59:18

you had to when

00:59:21--> 00:59:26

you had to be safe in battle mode. Yes. But nobody would kill you. How can the sort of Allah for

00:59:30--> 00:59:33

good luck good friends, when they come to your aid when you need the

00:59:40--> 00:59:45

final story of forgiveness. Somebody went to advise you of the law.

00:59:48--> 00:59:50

Only the debate is after we passed away.

00:59:51--> 00:59:56

Some young people went through they said please tell us how did you kill Hamza or the alojado

00:59:58--> 01:00:00

Hamza Abdullah motel it was not a

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

What not not a usual person. He was one of the greatest warriors of the time.

01:00:05--> 01:00:15

He used to like and even he used to fight with both his hands. He was ambidextrous used to fight you to use two swords. He did not use a shield. He used two swords.

01:00:17--> 01:00:21

So he was a great warrior. He was a great expert swordsman.

01:00:23--> 01:00:24

He was a wonderful Archer

01:00:26--> 01:00:46

when he came back from one of his hunting trips, and they told him that I was hell and so on had been traveling and they had tried to have the horse as he walked with his years getting a boy you walked with his boy into the era and I was sitting there and I'm tearing up the hotel is slung slammed his head with the book

01:00:47--> 01:00:58

recording him and he said How do you How dare you do anything to buy? Nabi Muhammad? Peter, I accept Islam now light I love Allah do is do something to me, let me see who who can do anything to me.

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

Nobody dare touch it.

01:01:04--> 01:01:07

So they asked him, How did you manage to kill this man?

01:01:10--> 01:01:16

So alive, he said, I will tell you the story, just as I told the story to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

01:01:18--> 01:01:38

why she there? Lana was one of the people for about whom Rosa was a restaurant pass sentence, he had passed sentence out of Adama con seven people. And he said that these must be killed. They was executed for the crimes that they had committed. And he said even if they are found hanging from the keys of the Kaaba,

01:01:39--> 01:01:43

even if you find them holding the, the glove of the cover killer.

01:01:46--> 01:01:53

What the actual realities are, I think if I'm not mistaken, only one of one was killed all the all the others you forgive later on. But

01:01:54--> 01:02:14

now, so why is that when this when this happened, I left my car and I went to it. And I was planning to go up somewhere else to some other country or something. And he said some of my friends told me how much will you run when we do this event to type out a mock event of time. And he said after type then there was a battle of any type.

01:02:15--> 01:02:29

So he said then I left I wanted to go after Abyssinia or somewhere. So one of my friends he says My friend told me how much will you run? Where will you run? Someday? Somebody's going to find you and then you will die you will you'll be killed? What is the point of that?

01:02:31--> 01:02:35

So go accept Islam make apologize to Mamasan He'll forgive you.

01:02:38--> 01:02:57

So why she said I covered myself up completely. So I could not be recognized because he has diverse reserves or somebody recognizes him on the way he's dead. So he covered himself completely. And he said I went and sat in front of the board. And he said he extended his hand and he said I have come to accept Islam.

01:02:59--> 01:03:02

Now Islam gave his hand wash he accepted Islam.

01:03:04--> 01:03:04

Then

01:03:06--> 01:03:08

so he said I removed the cover from my face.

01:03:10--> 01:03:11

doesn't recognize me.

01:03:13--> 01:03:23

But he did not receive his order. Vision has become Muslim. So he's for you. He said he recognized me. And then he asked me how did you kill my uncle?

01:03:26--> 01:03:29

So when I told him I said jasola I had nothing against jungle.

01:03:30--> 01:03:36

I had no fight with him. And nothing is do anything is Islam. He said I was a slave.

01:03:37--> 01:03:39

And he said only a slave knows what is the meaning of being a slave.

01:03:41--> 01:03:54

He said my master my owner said to me, Mohamed Salah Salem killed my uncle. So if you kill his uncle and didn't kill anybody, what commandment was that this uncle died in butter.

01:03:55--> 01:03:59

So he said if you kill the uncle of a house, I will free you.

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

He's a hustler. I was slave for me freedom was everything.

01:04:04--> 01:04:07

There was no way otherwise that I could be free.

01:04:09--> 01:04:13

So this was a once in a lifetime chance. He said I am a specimen

01:04:15--> 01:04:25

in our country in our culture they ever seen in Serbia very good at throwing the spear. That must be so is the right to my spear. And I went

01:04:26--> 01:04:33

to work. He said I did not go to fight anybody. I had only one job one purpose, which was to kill Hamza.

01:04:35--> 01:04:43

So instead are in the Battle of Hadees. I did not engage with anyone. I didn't fight with anyone. I didn't kill anybody else. He said I went looking for Hamza when

01:04:46--> 01:04:51

he said I found him in a place where he was fighting. And he said his eyes were everywhere.

01:04:53--> 01:04:54

He was totally alert.

01:04:55--> 01:04:59

So he said I hit I sat down I crouched down behind a rock

01:05:00--> 01:05:01

And I heard from him.

01:05:02--> 01:05:03

He said he was biting a man.

01:05:05--> 01:05:09

And he said when he was biting both his hands with his with his with shorts,

01:05:10--> 01:05:13

and he said he cut them across his body.

01:05:15--> 01:05:20

The man laughed and said, you missed. He said Hamza said, Take a step forward.

01:05:21--> 01:05:24

He said, The man took a step forward and he broke into two.

01:05:27--> 01:05:33

Now imagine the force of that blow of the sword where this road went through the whole man's body from one end to the other in the mind into the village.

01:05:36--> 01:05:36

That was

01:05:38--> 01:05:43

why she said, or the law no is there at that time Hamza bin Abdul Mutallab, another language relaxed.

01:05:45--> 01:05:54

And he said, the moment you relax is like stood up from behind my rock right through my spear. He said, The spear entered him this way and went through his body.

01:05:56--> 01:05:59

He said, he turned around and looked at me and he said, I was terrified.

01:06:01--> 01:06:08

He took a step towards me, but the wound was too much the spear was through his body, the wound was too much he could not stand he felt.

01:06:10--> 01:06:19

There, I was afraid even to go close to the body. So it's I waited until I was absolutely certain that he was dead.

01:06:21--> 01:06:29

Then I went to the body. I repeated my spear, and I went off. That's it. I went back to my camp is that I didn't fight anybody. I did not do anything.

01:06:30--> 01:06:31

This is what happened.

01:06:32--> 01:06:33

Now,

01:06:35--> 01:06:55

who is talking to he's talking to one of the greatest enemies, somebody who caused him so much harm and wept and wept and wept. He gave the body of observa hotellin. And he read salatu Janaza. On all the 70s I have us Abdullah Abu Hamza Rhabdo, Madonna's body has already been 30 times.

01:06:56--> 01:06:58

Then he bet any with his own hands.

01:07:00--> 01:07:01

What does he say to us?

01:07:02--> 01:07:06

They say to us, you are enough for you will not get out of my life. I don't want to see your face.

01:07:08--> 01:07:08

vanish.

01:07:10--> 01:07:10

It isn't.

01:07:12--> 01:07:24

What it is yet when he said to him, when you come into my imageless he didn't say don't come. He said when you come. He said sit to the side or sit at the back.

01:07:25--> 01:07:29

The because when I look at you, you remind me of bank.

01:07:30--> 01:07:31

So the pain

01:07:33--> 01:07:33

becomes due

01:07:41--> 01:07:56

even then he's not marrying the man. Even he doesn't say I don't want to see your face. You know that he says Get out of here. He's talking about himself. Even then he's not even blaming the man even then, he says when I look at you with my problem, he says mine is not your problem is my problem.

01:07:59--> 01:08:03

I feel bad, the pain of my ankle that gets

01:08:05--> 01:08:07

revitalized, it becomes alive again.

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

So when you come

01:08:10--> 01:08:13

please sit to the side or sit on the back.

01:08:15--> 01:08:19

He does not prevent Vashi from looking at the Navi

01:08:21--> 01:08:22

which is Ibadah

01:08:23--> 01:08:25

he doesn't want to come

01:08:27--> 01:08:33

come but if you had me come listen to cloud Quran. Come listen to the Guru's come listen to this.

01:08:36--> 01:08:42

Many, many years ago, many many years after that Vashi took part in the battle against ISIL Baraka.

01:08:44--> 01:08:47

And when she said that my one aim was to kill Hussein.

01:08:50--> 01:08:54

And Israel in the Muslim Gaza was killed.

01:08:57--> 01:09:01

With the sword that I was I was given. It was a prophet saw some sword himself.

01:09:02--> 01:09:14

And when she said at this, at that instant I threw my spear my spear kills the man. So he said that if my spear killed the man then he said that spear killed the best of the best of men. And it killed the worst

01:09:17--> 01:09:21

teacher I don't know because I was there also came at the exact time. And

01:09:22--> 01:09:34

he hit the man with the sword. He said, But if it were my spear, which were responsible for the death of the man, he said that my spear with that spear I killed the best of men and I killed the most.

01:09:37--> 01:09:45

This is the meaning of forgiveness and that is the reason there is rewarded because it is something which is not natural.

01:09:47--> 01:09:57

It is something that comes only because of this whoosah of the color. This greatness of the art this kindness this amazing nobility of character,

01:09:58--> 01:09:59

which also lies on its own

01:10:00--> 01:10:03

To demonstrate the third point is

01:10:06--> 01:10:07

the issue of

01:10:09--> 01:10:14

confidence. Now, the very first incident of Rasulullah is a wrestler

01:10:15--> 01:10:17

where he announced Islam.

01:10:19--> 01:10:37

I've said this many times before that if somebody came to you or me with this particular issue to say, look, I have to make this announcement to people, which is going to go completely against the grain of all that they believe.

01:10:40--> 01:10:43

They're not going to like it, there's no way that they can like it.

01:10:44--> 01:10:49

But I still have to do this because I have taken this job, what is the best way of doing that?

01:10:51--> 01:10:59

I can guarantee you, everyone when everyone but everyone will say only one set of things, and that sort of thing is

01:11:02--> 01:11:05

first, when the hearts of people first make friends.

01:11:06--> 01:11:15

And we do this thou army I say this all the time, as far as I was concerned, because there is a there's a logic to this is not it's not some fullest yet, but it's, there's a logic to it there is there is Quran for this.

01:11:18--> 01:11:19

So

01:11:20--> 01:11:23

we say, get some support.

01:11:24--> 01:11:28

And once you have that support, then you make whatever declaration you have to make.

01:11:30--> 01:11:32

But what did the province doesn't do?

01:11:34--> 01:11:39

Was he didn't ask Biagio for advice, but he did what is Rob jelajah had commanded him to do.

01:11:42--> 01:11:49

And he stood there and he announced now this was via is is like an alarm call.

01:11:51--> 01:12:00

It is called people for some days or some grid. So he calls him stay stand on the Hill of sofa. And he

01:12:02--> 01:12:31

makes this announcement he goes there and he stands up it calls people or when the people come Namita Rosella makes this announcement. What is the announcement, he first says, manager, if I told you see he's establishing his credibility, he says, If I told you that there was an army behind his mountain, which was ready to attack you, would you believe me? They said, Yes, we would believe you because you are a Saudi economy. You are the truthful and the trustworthy, we believe whatever you tell us, you have never lied to us and so on.

01:12:32--> 01:12:58

So having establishes credibility, he says, Therefore, now please listen to me, I am the same one, the same people, I mean, I'm telling you that if you do not leave this idol worship, if you do not leave polytheism and if you do not believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala if you do not worship only Allah without partners, then you will go to Johanna, you will have a bad ending. So save yourself from the fire. Now.

01:12:59--> 01:13:01

Salem is making a statement here

01:13:03--> 01:13:07

where he's going completely against the grain of all that the people believe.

01:13:09--> 01:13:10

Ask yourself, why is he doing that?

01:13:12--> 01:13:13

How is he able to do that?

01:13:16--> 01:13:24

And the only answer to that is, it comes from a complete and total faith and belief in the fact that you are correct.

01:13:26--> 01:13:30

That you are right. Now you might say well, you know you can also be up or you can also believe that about things your

01:13:32--> 01:13:40

confidence is not necessarily you can people will do wrong things also believe that they are right. Nobody actually does the wrong thing believing it is wrong.

01:13:41--> 01:13:49

So what is the difference? But I can tell you one thing that the level of Barbados that I'm talking about can only come with right

01:13:50--> 01:14:02

does not come with rock. You can have some confidence with rock. But the level of confidence that the interviewer had SallAllahu sallam, which enabled him to make this kind of announcement can come only with

01:14:04--> 01:14:09

only when the heart is completely and totally at peace with the fact that this is the truth and nothing else but the truth.

01:14:12--> 01:14:20

Remember, also that this unshakable belief. Now also remember that confidence is different from arrogance.

01:14:23--> 01:14:23

And they were

01:14:25--> 01:14:27

given to me Eltham, aadmi, or given

01:14:29--> 01:14:41

confidence is different from arrogance. Confidence is to have complete faith and trust in yourself. To have a sense of pride in your identity.

01:14:43--> 01:14:47

Arrogance is to have this and look down on somebody else.

01:14:49--> 01:14:58

I like who I am. I have confidence in my ability. I have confidence in my character. I have confidence in my appearance.

01:14:59--> 01:15:00

This is awesome.

01:15:00--> 01:15:17

Villa very good, we should have this positive self image. But because of this now I look down on somebody else. This is arrogance and Islam This is haram. There's no discrimination in Islam. Because it is discrimination is what looked down on somebody else.

01:15:18--> 01:15:43

And whites I look down on someone who is not white I am I'm not white. So I look down on someone who's white, I'm male, so I look down on someone who's female and vice versa, and so on and so forth. This is not permissible in Islam. So confidence is not arrogance, please understand that nothing wrong in being confident as a matter of fact, is extremely important with confidence. Today, the symbol of confidence of Islam is the woman in the hijab

01:15:45--> 01:15:51

is a great, you know, Hamdulillah, Allah has given honor to the sisters, and that's why they are being attacked everywhere.

01:15:52--> 01:15:55

The word is terrified of a woman with a job.

01:15:56--> 01:15:58

That's the pathetic state of the of the world.

01:16:00--> 01:16:03

And Hamdulillah we ask Allah to protect all our sisters

01:16:06--> 01:16:49

we have the confidence to wear the hijab, but this is a symbol of confidence. A woman in a hijab is not looking down on anybody, she is confident about herself, border identity and unreliable ally, we ask Allah subhanaw taala for strength and protection for them. So this is what the meaning of confidence is. And this is the best example of the expression of this confidence is the first instance where sorceress demonstrated, he announced Islam and was his whole life is filled with many, many incidents. But as I said, not my purpose here to talk about all of them, we talk about the ones that we that are enough Inshallah, to illustrate the point that we'll be, we then come out

01:16:49--> 01:16:51

of this to the point of courage.

01:16:52--> 01:17:18

Now, if you look at courage, courage, again comes out of confidence, courage against comes out of the feeling of being true to ourselves. Now, interestingly, even in today's world, where the issue of physical courage seems to be secondary, actually, it is not so. physical courage is not only the issue of fighting battles, physical courage is in every aspect of our lives.

01:17:19--> 01:17:38

physical courage is also moral courage, the ability to stand up for the unpopular view, the ability to start to stand up for people who are being oppressed. All of this is part of that is also physical courage, the ability to do all of that. Now in life always. The one of the finest examples of

01:17:39--> 01:17:41

of courage is the battle of hunted

01:17:42--> 01:17:45

where Salah was

01:17:46--> 01:18:29

in the Battle of Han and this was immediately after Fatah Maka. So the soldiers the two things about that army one was that this was the first time that the army of Muslims was actually fully equipped. There's normally all the other battles, they were very badly beaten, poorly equipped, but in the Battle of war, and they were fully equipped. So that was one. And secondly, the other side of the story was that this army was the majority of people were people who had recently come into Islam after North America. So they were not people who had undergone any form of Serbia with wrestlers or sell them to the all Muslims were who had recently become Muslim. So the kind of is the drama, the

01:18:29--> 01:18:30

kind of strength

01:18:32--> 01:18:48

the kind of power that Abu Bakr and Omar and Tara and Zubayr and other people rather Lana was made, that they had many of the people of that army, they didn't have all that. So when they

01:18:49--> 01:18:53

first encountered the house him the people

01:18:54--> 01:18:55

in our room the people have

01:18:57--> 01:19:21

of time, and then the Confederates, the there was almost complete chaos, because they have as ever, what 20,000 of them and not that every all the traditions and attack is the zip at the same time. But in that first shot of battle, the Muslims turned and ran, they literally it was about it was not even a retreat was the complete opposite.

01:19:23--> 01:19:44

It was allowed to such an extent that I was rather Lago was standing in his army, he was absolutely, you know, astonished, and he said, only the sea will stop them, meaning that they will run all the way to die. There's no they're not going to stop before that. One was there is a disease, another Ebola, meaning that we have lost this battle, it's gone.

01:19:45--> 01:19:46

And it is.

01:19:47--> 01:19:59

So people are losing hope people are losing courage. And in that situation, he was reading a white moon and Abdullah Massoud Golan said that

01:20:00--> 01:20:17

As I saw the person that said I'm going towards the enemy, everyone else is running away. The person was alone is going towards not only is going towards but he was riding his mule and he put up his hand and he was shouting and saying I am Mohammed bin Abdullah metallic.

01:20:18--> 01:20:19

I am Mohammed bin Abdullah.

01:20:22--> 01:20:36

So Abdullah says that says an ally and says an Abbas and others he says they grab the bridle of the mule, they try to stop him. They say, they want you they kill you the whole everything is finished.

01:20:38--> 01:20:43

This whole thing is about that. So please don't expose yourself does not listen.

01:20:44--> 01:20:51

He continues. Then Abdullah also said he turned and he saw me and he said call the unsavoury.

01:20:52--> 01:20:55

Call the answer? And after I also said I called out and said yeah,

01:20:58--> 01:21:03

even if the answer there was the one Rajat who were the family of a solar cell.

01:21:04--> 01:21:09

Now, Abdullah says that when I call me and Sam they came.

01:21:11--> 01:21:18

They came in surrounded the borders of a cell. And he said at that time, there must have been about 100 people or so. That's it.

01:21:21--> 01:21:25

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala sent his aid.

01:21:26--> 01:21:34

Abdullah and Masuda Ron said we saw a black mass descend from the heavens, it hit the Earth and dispersed and it looked like ads.

01:21:36--> 01:21:46

Allah subhanaw taala knows what his armies are, like, Allah knows who are the soldiers of his armies. But he said this is what it looked like it looked like ads dispersing.

01:21:48--> 01:21:54

And the result of that. I'm not gonna mention the Quran, Allah says in surah Tauba. So read

01:21:56--> 01:22:03

the whole battle, the whole tide of battle turn, the Muslims won that battle, they got huge Vanina

01:22:04--> 01:22:15

and so on and so on. So courage, physical courage. Now think about this, as far as we know, from his appearance, and so on and so forth, that he was a person of average height.

01:22:16--> 01:22:21

He was a person of average bit. He was not 10 feet tall and four feet wide now.

01:22:24--> 01:22:33

He looked as if he was the tallest if he was among people, but he bought but But was he that honest? No, it was not. It just appeared like that because of his confidence the way he held himself and so on and so forth.

01:22:34--> 01:22:39

physical courage is not a factor of your strength or size.

01:22:41--> 01:22:44

physical courage is not a factor of the size of your biceps.

01:22:46--> 01:22:50

There are people who, who look very strong who are very strong, but they have no deal.

01:22:52--> 01:22:55

So physically, courage comes from

01:22:57--> 01:22:58

personal confidence.

01:22:59--> 01:23:19

Maurice, that's why moral courage is a factor is behind physical courage. Unless you have moral courage. You cannot have physical and moral courage comes out of truthfulness, moral courage comes out of the truth, moral courage comes out of the ability, the confidence in what you're saying. This is a character of all the MBA Musella

01:23:20--> 01:23:22

take one single man,

01:23:24--> 01:23:25

one single man.

01:23:27--> 01:23:31

No, Uma, Allah, God Omala the resume

01:23:34--> 01:23:42

he's done. He's standing up to the king is standing up to all the people. They want to trim it to the fire and burn him and all kinds of things. One man alone

01:23:43--> 01:23:51

by himself. How does it do that? Discourage Musa Lisara Allah's rather I described that entire scene

01:23:53--> 01:23:56

of Musa Islam standing before we're out in his in his court.

01:23:58--> 01:24:02

I don't mind if he stick in his hat.

01:24:04--> 01:24:08

And who is Ramses the fourth the Pharaoh Musa.

01:24:09--> 01:24:14

He is the most powerful human being on the face of the earth at the time.

01:24:16--> 01:24:19

The king of the most powerful kingdom of the time,

01:24:21--> 01:24:25

master of the greatest wealth that anyone had at the time

01:24:26--> 01:24:36

and in front of that King, and these are you know, truly we today we have underlined is a good thing. But today we have no idea about the actual power of an absolute monarch.

01:24:40--> 01:24:48

When Bush Blair combined wanted to invade Iraq, they had to tell a lot of lies. They had to build a lot of public opinion.

01:24:50--> 01:25:00

You had Colin Powell had to go and lie through his teeth before the General Assembly of the United Nations to try and build out what was in it while they would have gone to though they could not have gone for

01:25:00--> 01:25:11

What it is a lot of public opinion has to be built and, you know, they have to create this entire edifice of lives of course, and hamdulillah thanks to the Chilcott report and so on It collapsed on their heads.

01:25:13--> 01:25:17

But the kings of the old, the absolute monarchy, they didn't need to do any of that.

01:25:18--> 01:25:20

They just ordered and it happened.

01:25:21--> 01:25:37

The same Pharaoh is filled out of masala Salah promises the vote, he is the one who ordered all the male children of the one is Bani Israel to be killed. It didn't didn't wait to build public support. He didn't do a ad campaign before that. No.

01:25:38--> 01:25:38

It was that.

01:25:40--> 01:25:41

Historians have said that

01:25:43--> 01:25:46

they have said that maybe 70,000 children were killed.

01:25:48--> 01:25:53

Jeep Can you imagine that what kind of barbarity is that? What kind of complete

01:25:54--> 01:26:03

raw power nothing is. That is the man in front of whom Musa is standing that same ground if he wanted he would have had Musa alayhis salam chopped into a femur.

01:26:05--> 01:26:06

It means which

01:26:08--> 01:26:24

there's no fear and misery Sarah why? Because it's connected almost Renata diligence. Courage comes from connection to Allah. Courage is the factor of the art of man Allah. When the slave recognizes that law Nafi Allah, then he gets courage.

01:26:25--> 01:26:36

When he realizes that nobody can harm and nobody can benefit il Allah except Allah subhanaw taala you get courage. Courage is a factor of la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah

01:26:41--> 01:26:50

that is the way that courage commitment that courage is unshakable. Because it comes from Allah Subhan Allah Allah subhanaw taala strength of the heart, Allah subhanaw taala makes the person

01:26:52--> 01:27:02

gives the person that courage. And as I said, this is the characteristic of all the MBI gave you the example of true But same thing you take his alarm take

01:27:03--> 01:27:08

all the courage is a factor of the truth of being on the truth.

01:27:10--> 01:27:12

And being connected with Allah subhanho wa Taala

01:27:14--> 01:27:18

out of this comes summer fortitude, now

01:27:20--> 01:27:26

what is what is our Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the issue of slavery Well, it's rather sad

01:27:30--> 01:27:32

this time, you know be slavery was solid

01:27:34--> 01:27:45

in the Bahamas slavery now suburb is I mentioned this before right and but I think it's important to clarify that summer is not simply to sit and do nothing.

01:27:47--> 01:27:58

Summer is not simply to sit and do nothing. Summer is to do your best and then stand before Allah subhanho Dona della Dorado and ask for itself

01:27:59--> 01:28:12

right now inshallah we will take a break for Maori which I think time for so. We take a break from our live and then we'll come back after Maori to finish the rest of it in sha Lumsden was around Allah will carry Murali he was right there
