salat wa salam, O Allah ashrafi lumea.
Voila, he was happy human when
you're looking at the series of numbers
in terms of the leadership lessons from this era, and we are on the subject of
creation and preparation of successes to take over the leadership after his passing away
in the 11th year of hijra Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and this is his final year, appointed Osama bin Zayed
and sent him to Mata with instructions, and etc him step on the place with your horses, where your fathers were killed. And they've been hydrosol on who died in the
Battle of Mata and Savage, he was the son of Lady niharika, or delanco, was sent with this instruction. And he's to come on the army now said Osama bin Laden was very young. He was about 18 years old or something like that, when his army and in his army was senior Sava, including workers who do Delano. And
some people objected. Not these two, but other people objected. And they said, Well, you know, this is maybe it's not a best choice. He's too young. And also people mentioned this as
the fact that he was the son of the Haida, and this is son of a former slave.
Now, I got very angry with this. And he said to people, he said, You are going back to the waves of jelly. And he said, If you objected to sama, you also objected to his to the leadership of his father. They'd been harissa, which at that time, and he said they'd be harissa was a good general. And Osama is also a good gentleman, he said, when he was capable of what command that he was given, and so is Osama capable of the command that he has been given. So this was the test of the obedience of the Sahaba. And if you think about this restaurant is doing this in his final year. And that's reason why he's testing numa to see how I trained them well, and they stood true to the test.
Now, as I mentioned, the disobedience is only when the command is unpopular, we have to understand is obedience is a question of, where is the question I will be obeying or not, if there is something that you want to do anyway. And you say, I'm very obedient. Then there is what is the question of obedience, and it is something that you are you want to do anyhow? So it's not a question. It's not a test of obedience, right? You don't need great obedience to eat, to eat, say dark chocolate or something like that. very obedient. Give me as much as you want, and I will eat it. So because you won't eat it anyways. I mean, somebody's giving it to you for free. But the question is, if you are
obeying in matters where you really don't want to do this thing, or if it's unpleasant, or it's unpopular or inconvenient, still do that. That's the test of obedience. And Rosaura Sallam said, if you are disputing his appointment, then you also disputed the appointment of his father before him. And in the name of Allah, He they'd been harissa was a suitable person to be the leader, and was the most beloved person to me. And this man is one of the most beloved person, one of the most beloved people to me, after his father after his aid in the high desert, about the Allahu anhu.
we learned several things. One is that he appointed young people to do important things.
And he didn't just appoint them randomly. He chose them on the basis of their competence and capability and his own training number one, number two,
that once he took a decision, he didn't back down because somebody didn't like that decision.
He didn't appoint Osama bin Zayed and then he didn't say Oh, is that right I mean, so is not popular. So Alright. So I changed him I put somebody you know, once he took a decision, he stood by that decision. decisiveness is a very important element of leadership. A leader who is wishy washy who says one thing once and then changes and goes somewhere else is a very bad
you know, thing and a leader, a leader must stick to whatever he has decided must not keep changing that decision. Time and again, that does not mean that you are completely you know, in flexible and even if there is good reason to change your decision.
You still stick to the old decision, and therefore you invite disaster. I'm not talking about that a leader should be prepared to change his or her decision depending on what the evidence is. So, for example, if you took a decision to do something and then somebody brings for you incontrovertible proof, that another course of action would be very beneficial and obviously, you should do that. And we see this from the zero that he changed his decision in certain cases, because the reason given was valid for that change. But if it is other things, for example, like this, where people are similar, we don't like so and so.
What does liking have to do with competence you may not like so what
Bilal Delano as the magazine.
And it is not because he had the loudest voice or he had the best voice or anything like this. Sometimes we will talk about as a appointed biller, because he had the
voice was much louder than belaz voice.
And interestingly, he says he was the one who saw the dreams and another savvy. They were the two people who saw this dream about the other.
The other side whose name I just I'm not remembering this now. But he came and reported this to her I saw in my dream, a man given these are the words used for the other under socialism said yes, this is good and let us do that. And then Southern America came and he said I saw the same dream.
So it was reconfirmation of the fact that this dream was inshallah a true dream from Allah subhanaw taala. Despite that Rasul Allah Islam did not appoint either of them as the mosaic not the origins of the dream. So God gives the other No, he said, teach it to biller and let biller do it for the law.
So now, the lessons from the appointment of Osama immunization
three very important lessons number one, the lesson of discipline and I and I mentioned this in some detail yesterday as well. So I won't go into too much detail. But issue of discipline, if the army has decided something, he must be obeyed. The issue of followership is very important. When we are talking about leadership, we cannot have a leader when people don't want to follow and people want to have their own independent
views on things. Second one, that youth must take responsibility for serious matters of Deen.
And this is a very big challenge today.
Young people don't want to take responsibility for serious matters of the people are fine as long as it is fun and games, but when you when it comes to doing some work, and I'm sorry to say that, but internationally, when I travel, I find that the biggest problem are the men.
You go into where Islamic centers in America. And if there's some event happening, if there's some occasion there's something to be done. And you see the girl to see all the sisters, and they're moving big tables and they are doing this and doing that as a Where are the Where are your brothers?
They kept they come to the machine with some arms was your brother. And what is the brother doing? He's throwing hoops in the parking lot is basketball.
The practicing the
all the power dunks
doesn't work, doesn't work, you have to take responsibility for this deal. You can't just dump it on your sister or dump it on your wife or somebody as if you have noticed. But you have to take responsibility for that. Take the time out learn how to do things. Again, very important. If you want to do the work of then you have to learn how to do it. It's not some random thing that just because I haven't used them I can do it no you cannot do it.
The specific things to be learned issues of knowledge issues or application issues of social skills and so on and so forth, all of which must be learnt just enthusiasm alone cannot
cannot cannot stand in or cannot, you know fulfill all the other competence requirements
and also the appointment of Osama bin Zayed and the appointment of other such
young Sahaba Mr. Benjamin lindzon is an inspiration for the youth and for others about the work of Dean that they should take such responsibility and
also demonstrated this obedience to the
to a level of excellence where he did not change the hokum of Nebuchadnezzar either with regard to the appointment or with regard to sending out the army
Made of Osama bin Zayed.
And that's the whole study by itself. And those of you who are here for the lecture on the life of our Casa de Delano, we I mentioned that in detail. There's a series of lectures we had last year on the life of our seven Our focus today.
We mentioned this in detail, the whole wisdom, and this wisdom was from NaVi Salah Salem. Obviously,
Delano couldn't have known that, but the whole wisdom of sending out an army to fight in Mata which is far away, which is only we're talking about going all the way up to the border.
North of Riyadh are currently in Saudi Arabia going up there, while Medina itself was in grave danger. Because people had were leaving Islam and they were. They were they were rumors that Medina is going to be attacked. And a lot of the Sahaba they advise our city for Delano, they said, don't do this, don't send out the army. We need the people here, who will take care of the safety of the people, our city. No, sir, I don't care for any of this advice. I will do what I have been ordered by the messenger sallallahu sallam. He said send out the army Osama and the army Osama we go and the army went.
And of course, there is hikma in the command of the enemy Salah Solomon, it's a very good example to understand this. You and I cannot use our heads to say that conditions today have changed therefore, the commander of the Navy can be ignored. No.
The Navy speaks from the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala from the
what was the actual effect of his army going out? The actual effect was that this army going out became the protection for Madeira.
The psychological effect that the halifa is sending an army out far far away. The psychological effect was that Nananana if these people are going out, it means that he has an amazing force in Medina.
Medina is safe. He's got warriors in the place. So we cannot attack Medina because Medina, they didn't know that there. Medina is empty.
But this was the hikma of the commander. But how did he maintained that he maintained this command, both in terms of who was the commander, as well as what that army was to do. He did not even change that he didn't say, go somewhere that's not the same place where
So also this obedience was maintained by the law with regard to the appointment of Khalid bin Khalid because there are many objections to his appointment. There were many objections to his command after a restaurant passed away. But our guest today for Delano said very categorically, he said the sword which Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has unsheathed abubaker will not put it back in the sheets.
Because given the title of Saifullah, the sword of Allah
the sword that also Lazzara has drawn, a worker will not put it back in the seat
into the sheath.
And that is how today 14 centuries later his message is taken all over the world by people who didn't see him, but love him more than anything or anyone else.
This is something yesterday I mentioned to you the difference between
Muslims teaching and writing about the Sierra and non Muslims teaching and writing about the Sierra. One of the things that completely escapes all non Muslim writers without exception is how this is possible.
How is it possible
that 1400 years later,
people who never saw Saracen they did not know Him, they did not hear his voice. They are not from his tribe. They are not from his from his region. They are not from his race. They don't even speak the language that he used to speak May Allah forgive us that something which we should correct and change. But that's the reality. They did not even speak the language used to speak they have absolutely nothing in common with this man. But when the name of this man comes, these people cry, they weep, it touches their heart, they connect with him today 14 centuries later as if they are sitting in his presence.
They cannot understand this. They cannot understand how if somebody draws a cartoon from every Muslim with a with a with a grandma Iota Veera will stand up and he will say you cannot do this.
Even Muslims who do not pray May Allah forgive us. I mean you're not praying is a very serious matter. But even Muslims who do not pray, even Muslims who are who are involved in all sorts of sins which Muslims should not
Doing but these Muslims are involved in all sorts of sins. But those same Muslims The moment you say something about Mohammed Salah Salah that man will stand up that woman will stand up and say you cannot say this about me
and I will give my life if I forgive my life, but I will not allow you to say anything disparaging and anything uncomplimentary about my interview sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And if you say well you know what you don't pray, you don't have a beard, you don't have a hijab. That is my problem that is between me and my Arab. You cannot say anything about Mohammed Salah. No matter what I am that is between me and my job. But you cannot say anything about w sallallahu. Salah. As long as there is breath in my body. I will not let that happen
across the world, across the world.
On the day of judgment, well, I think the Amir will
will wonder about this. The ambia will
be will be envious about this. How is it that what we used to be disparaged. Our people never stood up he will make jokes about the Salah Salah no Christian ever stands up I have no I've never heard of anyone standing up. People make filthy, lousy horrible films. In the name of Jesus. Jesus Christ Superstar is a film that is made which is so much full of absolute rubbish.
Peoples makes jokes about Musa alayhis salam Moses and Jesus jokes, nobody said anything. But let anyone say anything about Mohammed Salah Salah
let anyone say about anything,
the scientist will stand up, the camera driver will stand up.
The man pushing a push cart will start up the man selling bananas on the street will stand up.
The scholar will stand up
no matter what he is doing in this dunya whether he is rich or poor, as long as he is a Muslim, he will stand up and he will say you cannot do this. And you cannot say this. And if you do and say this, that you have to first deal with me.
And if I have to lose my life in the process, I am ready to lose my life. If my life goes in defending the honor of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam that that life has gone in a beautiful way. And that is what I pray to Allah subhanaw taala
Allah take my life to defend the honor of me.
No non Muslim can understand they cannot understand this is a How is it possible? How can this be possible? But Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. None of us needs an explanation for this because we know it here.
We know it here. None of us need the explanation
about this. We know this here.
Our little kids know this here.
People love this deal.
People love the Shire of this gene the symbols of this day.
Somebody was telling me a story.
That one of the you know my friend is a Mufti from from South Africa last summer that they went for a takeoff to measure the Lhasa.
So they spent the last 10 days and more in Basilica. And they said there was a young Palestinian boy about 10 years old, who was with them and he was doing the Hitman czar, and they became very fond of him and his boy also, they really you know,
those of you who spent Alhamdulillah Allah we spent time in Africa in his budget also and you know what sort of a bonding that is? No it's like brothers.
So this booth, he told me that he said when we were leaving, I said to his wife is a poor boy, his his, you know, his, his his lives and what what do you think he has, but he's got nothing. So he said, We told him all South Africans and wealthy people so he they said to him, Look, we are going to process your papers that will take you from here. We come and live with a South Africa we will take care of education and this and that and the other and so on. So
he says the boy looked at me
and he said if I go with you,
who takes care of this
big boy, big boy
and why the people are happy the numbers the
10 year old kids.
He says if I go with you, who will take care of this
The Muslim Central era,
the shout of Islam, the signs of Islam, the Muslims love Islam.
And the biggest sign of Islam, the biggest of them all. So, Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu Samson.
To round this off, before we go to the closing session of this lecture, using a model that we use for teaching leadership called the situational leadership model.
rahsaan life is a beautiful example of the ideal in a situational leadership model, who is the best leader, a best leader is not someone who can lead in a particular way, a best leader is the one who has at his disposal, repertoire of skills, a basket of tools that he or she can use appropriately to the situation.
There's no one way.
There's no one way. The best leader is the one who can use whichever way is needed for the situation.
And we talk about a we talk about a matrix of ability and willingness. And those of you who came to the leadership excellence course, we did the situational leadership model there and you have seen it
style with people who are able and willing.
A classic example is body image.
And what was his style, he was only checking to see if the instructions were understood.
He was not training my opinion by training, it had already happened. He was not checking his motivation. He wasn't joking. Are you really willing to go? No, he knows willing to go.
ability and motivation, ability or willingness are both there. He's just checking to see if all the pieces are in place. So he asked him, What will you do? How will you present Islam? How will you judge things, and Mark when jamala Delano gives him the examples, and Allah makes draw for him and sends him away?
We have the issue of people who are able but unwilling.
And a very good example of this is the case of IBM, which we explained in detail. We talked about it yesterday, where they were given what they were capable of, after getting back from their they capable of slaughtering their animals. But
we know all the reasons without going into the detail. We did that yesterday. At for a moment they were unwilling to do something. And how did we deal with that? By presenting a personal example.
With guarded memory, after Fatima continually left Makkah and went away.
He didn't want to accept Islam, and he didn't want to stay in Makkah. So he left and went to a restaurant for his brother who was a Muslim.
And he said to him as Khalid he told him as Khalid they tell him has not the time come yet?
For his heart to be affected by zikalala.
And his brother wrote him a very nice letter and told him this. This is the message of Mohamed Salah Salem for you
call him every thought that if Russia if he went to resources, and maybe he will kill him or something because he knew me? No, I have been his enemy all my life. I've been fighting him all my life. So what do I expect from the enemy that he will kill me? His brother said no far from the truth. He doesn't want to kill you. He's actually inviting you to slump. So somebody who's able but unwilling, how do you deal with that?
Somebody who is unable but willing to learn,
as well as the Los Alamos sitting in the masjid, a man came and bred,
separate rocket. And when he finished he came to me and said Salaam Salaam said to him, go back and pray your prayer is
is not correct. So the man went back, and he prayed again. And he came back and said, Go back and pray your prayer is not correct. The man went back a third time and he prayed, and he came back and said, Go back and pray your prayer is not correct. He said, Sir, I only know this much.
either. I am trying to pray the best way I know but that that's all I know. I don't know anything more than this. So now is Allah. Allah, then demonstrate it to him the correct way of Salah.
Now, think about this. Why did he need to send him back three times. Maybe he would have sent him back 10 times the van kept on going he would have sent him he would have kept on sending him back. Why? Why did you not say right in the beginning your prayer was not correct. This is the right way. Why didn't he say that?
To draw the man's attention to his own need to learn,
man was willing, but he wasn't exactly he didn't come there to learn tunnel vision.
So it's a very good idea if you want, if you have people are willing, but they need training, it's a good idea at first to draw their attention. Yes, I do need this training. And yes, I know it is important for me before you actually go and
impart this knowledge.
And then you have people who are also unable and unwilling,
don't want to do something.
What do we normally do?
Right, eject, get out, do not do it.
But see what
many of you have heard this story from me before. But for those of you who haven't,
Allah is Allah Allah, Allah Azza wa sallam.
After hatanaka, he was going to tie
the famous battle of money.
So the army of Baka is going towards life.
It's a big army 10,000 and more people. And the army has also a lot of newly converted people, people who recently came into Islam.
So these are people who haven't had the opportunity of Serbia with rasa Salam. They've just entered Islam. Many of them Allah, Allah, Allah knows best, but many of them probably entered Islam just because now Islam happens to be politically the correct religion to have, because it's the religion of the rulers. So therefore, it is better to be Muslim then to be something else. So even whether whether I'm really entirely convinced or not, well, you know, let me become Muslim. So maybe there are people like this also in that which is quite common in many places.
Now this army went, and in one place they camped.
And when they came, second, a beloved Delano stood up to give the other
so when when Allah Delano was giving the exam, there was a group of young coresh young Qureshi men.
So these were people who from the primary tribe, they were within Cortes, upper class. Right? And they were young men, and they were newly into Islam and they are no tarbiyah and so on, so forth. So they started making fun of Bilal rhodiola.
So whenever he when he started calling me as an as brother called Diaz and these men were making fun of Malala Delano and laughing at him and saying, what kind of man is this is black mind is calling design and so on and so on.
And there was one of them who was particularly vociferous about all this.
Now, somebody reported this to sort of a wrestler. So he said, Call them
so now this is a different ballgame, because now he is the gender of the army.
And he's calling them so now they got very, very desert micronauts happen.
So they had to go. So they came.
They came to him,
they sat down
and said, I believe you are laughing at Villa.
So they said, Well, you know, he didn't mean anything. He said, No, this is what
he said, who was the one who was laughing the most.
pointed to him, and he said, Come come forward. Come close to
that man thought that this is the end because now he's calling me Come close to me. And then he will signal to somebody and they will chop my head.
I'm talking about how do you deal with people who are unable and unwilling? How can you inspire somebody who doesn't even like you? Who doesn't want to do what you want him to do? Who doesn't even know what to do?
That is the ultimate No, it is the person who is unwilling is unable he's got no skill. What you want him to do, he doesn't want to do it and they are like you
how do you inspire them?
restaurants come close. The man came close. They said, Do you want me to teach you how to make the other?
So the answer a lot that I was going to say, right?
So the man said yes, please teach me.
So as soon as
you said then repeat after me.
And the visa is lm called dia de
a lot law
the man said to him
he said Yasser Allah
Villa is your margin in Medina Make me your margin and
he said appoint me as your mother in law kinda
said You are my mother in law.
The historians writes that Allah subhanaw taala gave this man a very long life. He lived close to 100 and he said every day for every Salah he would come into the masjid, he would make Budo he would make rakaat Salah he would make tough, and then he would call the other his whole life. Every day of his life. This is what the
One encounter. And the man who used to make fun of Bilal Catalano.
The man who's to laugh at the magazine, asked for the job of the Waze and doesn't just ask for the job to impress him. Then he asked for the job. And then he does that job sincerely for the rest of his life.
That is the meaning of leadership.
But imagine what Sam is going through at that point in time.
I'm the commander of the army.
If I just flick a finger, that fellow's head goes from his body.
Maybe it's a good example to set. Let no one laugh at Bilaal anymore. What's the best way to show that job? Somebody?
No one will dare to do it after that.
That's a way
that is a way
but is that the way that shows
the way he chose was inspire him.
completely around, turn them around.
the leadership of Mohammed Salah la de
la ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah,
Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah.
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Muhammad, Allah tala Ibrahima, and
we come to the last days of Solomon, I thought that would be an appropriate way of closing this series of lectures is to look at the last days of Asana, what was his what was his will, what was his teaching, the last things that he got uma, and we are saying the last because if somebody is leaving and going away, then what they say at that point in time when they are leaving and going away is the essence of what they taught all their lives. They're not likely to talk about all sorts of things, they will talk about the absolute essence, the most important critical things, if I want if I'm leaving and going away from here never to return. What will I say I will say to you one or
two things that I want you to take away nothing else.
So let us see what this was with the Nabi sallallahu sallam.
I still remember I was sitting in Serato.
In a mustard in Chicago,
when we receive news of a plane crash, in which there were 30, something Egyptian pilots who would come to America to train for flying training, and after completing the training, they were going back and this plane crashed and all of them died.
30 something people the whole the entire plane load of people died. And it was it was an Egypt airplane and there was suspicion that there was some
You know, sort of sabotage that happened Allah knows best, whatever. But the point was that there were all these people be the cream of, of leadership and the cream of abuse in Egypt and all of them died in one crash. And I still remember we were sitting in the masjid, after salata.
And there was young a, there was an Egyptian brother who stood up, and he came and he started with this. He said, my brothers and sisters, let me remind myself when you that also Lai salatu salam said, When any calamity befalls you think of my death, and that calamity will seem like nothing. He said, we just received news that 30 of our brothers have died in this plane crash. And we make the offer the other way he said it would have swapped I said, this is the calamity. He said the biggest calamity is the death of the Navy. It's not the death of anybody else, no matter how painful it is. The death of the Navy is the biggest calamity that you will get comfort. You will get comfort in the
death of whoever else passed away if you think of my death.
You will be comforted with that.
Why is the death of the Navy the biggest disaster the biggest calamity because that was the end of
Gibraltar is stopped coming to the earth
with the message of Allah subhanaw taala
the oma was deprived of the company of the bark of Rasul Allah
and His and this connection is special connection. Because of Salah we always have a connection with Allah subhanaw taala. And that's the whole purpose of Salah, but this special connection that they had, where Allah subhanaw taala would actually reveal His Word that Allah subhanaw taala was actually speaking and sending down his column, that connection was closed forever.
And that is why the death of Allah Allah Azza wa sallam is the biggest calamity that is Boomer can ever have can ever experience and that calamity is over. So whatever masiva comes on us and melasma save all of us and all of this oma from Mozilla, but whatever Mozilla comes, is always less than that. And that's why we take courage from that, and we take comfort from this and we do not fall into despair. And we do not fall into complaining about Allah and complaining about whatever masiva has befallen us.
Allah subhanaw taala revealed his ayah in Surah Allah many years before he passed away this is the ayah refers to
Rama Mohammedan ihlara Sol, cada halat Minh cobbly here Rasul imata Oh, booty LAN collabo tamala kabhi come Romanian kalevala aqui falaya Dora la ha she was sayaji Zilla hoshigaki Allah subhanaw taala said Mohammed Salah Salim is no more than a messenger and when we say no more than a messenger, now, this is not a disrespect of a sorcerer. It means I saying that he is not a Malika is not from the Malika. He is not God, he is a messenger of Allah Jalla Allah, and indeed many messengers have passed away before him. If he dies or is killed, will you then turn back on your heels? And will you fall into this belief and he who turns back on his heels, not the least harm,
where can he do or will he do to Allah, but Allah will give the best reward to those who are grateful.
Now we know the famous
incident that happened when they passed away.
When they passed away, it was a calamity it was made the Sahaba just could not come to terms with it.
That's one of the Llano just went into his house and he shut the door and he refused to say anybody
that drew his sword and he said if anyone is says that Mohammed Salah Salaam is dead, I will chop his head. I will chop his neck
and he said masala has gone to meet his rap and he will come back like Busan is lm is to go to meet his rap. As soon as I went to meet Islam and he will come back. And if anyone says he is dead, I will chop his neck. And people were collecting and one Nakata was standing there in
our city for Delano just that morning had gone to visit his wife who lived out on the outskirts of Medina. One of his wives lived on the outskirts. He went he went to visit and he asked us permission. And he went.
It was a Monday.
And he got news that he passed away.
So he got on his horse. He came straight. He went into the house.
Why shadow delana he sort of
had passed away.
He kissed his forehead. And he said you are as beautiful in depth as you are in life.
And then he came into the masjid.
And there was Omar Catalano with a short.
They went on the member and he called the people.
And the moment they saw our city for November, they left
and they went over the city.
Our city said,
he recited this, I have the Quran.
He decided this is
number 144. And he said those of you who worship Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, know that Mohammed is dead.
And he said, those of you who worship Allah, know that Allah subhanho wa Taala never dies
satara Delano said that string went from my legs and I fell down.
He said I collapsed. And he said well I I have these people who are who follow the Quran says
it was as if I was hearing that I have for the first time in my life. He said I heard this I have a worker He said it was like I had heard design for the first time.
Now who loves Mohamed Salah Salah more than
if there was anyone who had an excuse to fall apart? It was a worker said this.
But our plan was short strength like nobody could imagine.
Many years later, many years later, in the hills of Alabama, Vitaly Rolando Allahu
alayhi salam was in the member he asked the people there were some rumors of people talking. He asked the people he said tell me who is the bravest among the people.
And they said you
he said not me. He said the bravest among the people was
one day there was some question and some argument and said and Omar Abdullah said something about our city. Rasul Allah Allah serves first went red with anger. He said when not not when none of us supported me. He supported me when none of you stood by me he stood by me and today you talk about him.
This was a worker of the land.
And who prepared who made Abu Bakar avoca
Bismillah tala. It was the training It was a Serbia It was a saga of the NaVi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
It was a Thursday before the Monday
and also Rasul Allah.
This was his final terminal illness, masala slim at severe fever and severe headache.
And he got them to tie a clot very tight around his head.
And then he wanted to go and speak to the people.
socialize Allah Salam.
To bring this fever down. He asked for water from seven different wells of Medina.
And this water was brought in he got them to pour this water over him.
Cold water to pour over him for his fever to come down.
And then he went to the masjid
he let the Salah he read Surah Al mo Salah
wa salam here at the surah in the Salah of Nazareth.
He was supported on one side Valley we have Italia Delano. And on another side by one of the sons of Allah bus we have the Moto della
and after a Finnish Salah, he sat on the member.
He didn't stand he sat on the member and he gave a photo in which you praise and thanks to Allah subhanaw taala. And then he asked Allah subhanaw taala to forgive the Shahada of God.
This was an agent or restaurant, he was very loyal to his friends. He never forgot those people who were loyal to him. He never forgot those people who were true to him.
and he began with asking the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala for the Shahada.
And then he said, Omaha, Sharon, you are increasing in number. While the answers are not increasing, obviously the answer or a group of people and as
They died, they just shrunk and shrunk and shrunk. But the modular anyone who made the module so people who are coming into Medina from everywhere, so he says you are increasing in number, while the answer are not increasing, he said but they are the ones who supported me in the beginning. So honor the honorable among them, and forgive the ones who make mistakes.
The position of the answer or socialism is very different.
And then he said, Oh men, carry out the expedition under Osama. Your complaint against his leadership is the same as your complaint against the general shape of his father before him by Allah. Osama is as fit for generalship, as was his father.
And then he said, Oh people, there is a slave of Allah, who was given the option of this world of what is in the hands of Allah. And he chose what is with Allah.
Allah was sitting in front and he said, jasola, we will sacrifice ourselves and our children four years old, and he started weeping. And we will look at him as a wise old man weeping What's wrong with him? He was talking about some slave of Allah and so on, why is he leaving.
But three days later, they knew why he was weeping.
Had a special position with a special understanding of the color of Allah special understanding of what he was saying. So when he said that there is a slave of Allah, who was given the option of this world, or what is in the hands of Allah, and he chose what is with Allah. Allah says, realize that Russell Russell serve is talking about his own deaths.
Russell Russell and stopped him when he said we will sacrifice ourselves and our children on you. He said he stopped him and he said, the person most faithful to me in his friendship and his wealth is alberca if I was going to choose anyone other than Allah as it would be,
but I am the leader of Allah, and our workers, my friend and companion in Islam in my brother in Islam, all the doors into the masjid are to be closed, except the door of
the Sahaba had built houses around the budget, and they had gone where they put directly into the mud. And he said all the doorman except
today, people who curse our workers today
must read the Syrah
and understand who are you cursing? By your cursing, he does not decrease and his position does not decrease by cursing you curse yourself.
And then he said, may Allah curse the Jews and Christians for building houses of worship over the graves of the prophets. No other religions should exist in the Arabian Peninsula except Islam. Take care of your Salah. Take care of the slaves fear Allah in the matter of your women send out the army of Osama
what would Allah subhana wa sallam say if he saw our daggers today?
He cursed the people who build places of worship over the graves of prophets, over the graves of good people or the graves of sets
is the essence of worship at door mahalo bada.
Today we build huge structures, and we take great pride.
And no one structure has a door of silver other one has a door of gold and whatnot over the grave of somebody or the other. And we go and make
this is open ship. This is like going to a temple and worshipping an idol there is no difference.
be absolutely clear in your mind, asking for the help of anyone other than Allah subhanho wa Taala is haram. It is open ship.
The one who's doing it without understanding is completely and totally misguided. The one who does it in spite of understanding has left Islam. He's a mushrik.
He's not a Muslim anymore. He's left Islam.
As I told you,
when someone is leaving and going away and is making arsia What is he going to say? The most important things, the key things and out of what Hassan said what are the key things send out the army Osama was something that was restricted to that particular time and place but everything else, take care of your Salah.
Fear Allah in the matter of your women.
The whole of the of the women the week, the week people take care of your slaves who's a slave today anyone who is under your authority, your servants, your drivers, your employees.
They're not slaves as in slaves, but they are people under your authority.
And then, and then Amazon said do not any curse the people not just do not make he cursed those who make structures over the graves of the ambience.
And the graves of the good people among them
now the last days
after the third day and is unable to get up in order to go and lead Salah.
So you call Nigella delana and he said, Mauro Abubakar, personally witness,
she said or Abubakar to lead the people in Salah
Ayesha de la jolla. Later she said that I didn't want my father to lead Salah because I thought it would create a great fitna, when my father stand on the masala masala
people will rebel they will say how can you stand in the position of the Navy so she did not
carry out this instruction and she's a young soldier is a very soft hearted man he might just drop or something where we overcome with tears and so on. If you stand in your position got irritated and he said you people are like the women of use of
He said Morrow Abubakar, personally witness he's an order Abubakar to lead the people in Salah.
The reason I mentioned in this particular thing is because there is a mistaken impression among some people that did not appoint a successor. And that is completely wrong.
completely wrong. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam indicated who according to him was the fittest person to be his successor.
But he deliberately did not mention Abubakar city by name by in terms of saying that he will succeed me He didn't say that. But he gave him the position of the successor. What is the position what is the supreme position in Islam?
The imam of Salah
the supreme position in Islam is the Imam of Salah.
So in the time on Avi Salah Salem, the Imam of Masjid nabawi is the Navy
and after the Nabi whoever is the Imam of Masjid. nabawi is the Imam of the oma.
So very clear indication. Now you might say well, why didn't he just say so?
Because as soon as a Salam till his end, he was preparing the
transitioning from person led to process driven, he was putting processes in place, and then he trusted those processes and we'll see what happened
to that call our ordering.
led Salah from Thursday onwards.
And during that period once said hon Allah Allahu Calderon,
and when he called her in, they looked around
for whatever reason wasn't there? So Bill Allah Delano called Omar and see who does Bilal call there were many people there. Right all is about me that I didn't even
know was there. I live in Abu Dhabi visa relate is a relative of soy, almond soy sauce, man.
They're all related in one way or the other. But blood relation in terms of direct is I live in Italy. He was there.
Bill Allah Delano did not call him and he did not object. Nobody else objected. Who does Ali who does Bilal call when Abu Bakar is not there? Omar Nakata.
So it all over the land religious Allah says and Omar led the Salah, as Omar Abdullah was reciting he had a big voice rahsaan have heard him in his
quarters, and also lies Allah is lm said, Allah subhanho wa Taala and the meaning don't wish that the army should be anyone other than avoca.
Now this was conveyed to Omar
obviously got very upset with Bill and he said Why did you put me forward?
I did what is the norm? I did not know that this was a sellable object. But this is the norm You are the one after a worker and a worker is not so I told you.
But is also a clear indication that even between avocado and Omar who did Nebuchadnezzar prefer Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu.
Now, he did not, however, specify, as I told you why,
again, because we're looking at leadership, you're looking at this particular issue, he would have said very clearly, he did not do that. Why? Because he wanted to establish a system of choosing the meal. It was not just a matter of one I mean, it was to choose me till the Day of Judgment till the Muslims are there. How do choose army
and what was the system that the Sahaba used?
Who was the MA what was the clinching argument with
was put forward by Mr. Malhotra Delano when they were sitting, talking about who should be me.
He said who leads us in Salah Omar Al Khattab said, which one of you will accept that you are the Imam and Abu Bakar is bamboo.
When people said now we love, we love Allah protect us from this, how can we pray? And how can I lead Salah with Abu Bakar behind me, no way, cannot be done.
he said, put forward your hand, I will give you my bio. And they all gave by to ocasio Delano. On that day and the next day, including seminary when I'm Italian. In that particular meeting, he was not there because he was engaged with the funeral of Russell Isola, and doing things there. So he was in his meeting. But this is what
was creating this system.
He wanted, he wanted our workers Delano as the mayor, but he wanted the Muslims to make their own choice. Now see that is taking with regard to leadership.
But he had faith in his training, and he had faith in his people, and his people chose correctly.
And this was important because for the first time, the Amir would not be unhappy
where he comes to me with no arguments, but with me, you can have many different contenders
that Michelle was putting in place a system
to ensure that the right people are chosen. And we know from the history of Islam, that as long as the Muslims followed that system Alhamdulillah there was no corruption in the oma. But when the Muslims changed that system and converted it into the into a dynastic system or some other system is all when the problem started. May Allah forgive us? And may Allah be pleased with us and shall
and the result now is in the last few days,
the last day or last two days. There were seven dinars in the house of also lies.
I don't know sometimes I feel so hesitant. I don't even want to say the stories alive.
I wish I could just sit and listen to somebody else saying it. I my tongue doesn't I don't want to say these stories also.
We have so far away. We're so far away. It's like It's like
seven dinners he has in his house. His wife Ayesha was going to be widowed and she is going to the young woman. She's going to be widowed and she has no support.
Seven years. What does he say? Does he say keep it safely use it?
So give it away? charity.
Niger delana Look at her.
The man she loves beyond anything else. He's dying in her lap in her house. What do you expect you thinking of the gears?
So obviously she forgot and Alicia Rosella is now these are the last, you know, last moments of his life last few hours of his life. So he is in a state of Nevada he's going becoming unconscious and regaining consciousness and so on. The obviously in that process, say the eyeshadow delana forgot about this bunny. He came he gained consciousness. He said what happened to those seven dinners? She said they are solid they are here. He said Give it to me.
She gave them he put it he held it in his hand. And he said what a spectacle is this if Bahama should meet his rap in this state
talking about harmony
was the money in the house?
Was he talking about that? How can I meet Allah Subhana Allah with haram wealth in my head he's saying that
he said how does it seem what spectacle is this if the NaVi meets his rock with money in his sohara logic?
So have a think about this? Think about this is the essence of taco. This is the ultimate of taco is that give it away?
And the money is given away.
The money is given away. I Shara delana.
Houses duck somebody said why don't you light a lamp she said if we had oil we would have eaten it because we didn't even have fruit.
Finally on Monday, the Sahaba
they are in Salah being led by workers for the Allahu Rasul Allah is Allah Allah moved aside. He felt better. He stood up and he was holding the door. He moved aside the curtain
between his house and the budget has been Monica Delano, who was standing on the side. He said also lie Salah Salim stood and watched us and his beautiful face. He said his face was like the moon. He said it was as if the whole mustard was lighted by the knower of his face. He said then the Surah Surah Salam came into the masjid, leaning on Abby, olive in Italian, and one of the sons of anibus with Abdulmutallab other people were so happy they are all standing in Salah then they can see it coming from there. He said people almost left Salah.
And our city realized this commotion and he realized that it's only because must be coming. He raised his voice in Salah to indicate to the people that the Salah has to continue you cannot just break the Salah because Ravi Salah was coming What does it tell us about the importance of Salah
What does it tell us about the importance of Salah raises his voice inserting the column of Allah subhanaw taala the people are still sending in Salah Nabi sallallahu Sallam comes as NANOSENSORS Rasul rasa coming behind him, he moves back to give the position of the Imam pushed him back and he said, You lead and he sat down beside him, and he completed the Salah in a sitting position.
What indicators do you want? What indicators do you want?
him was very happy. Why? Because this is the last thing he saw. He saw his own man standing together in Salah.
Allah subhanaw taala showed him the success of his mission.
Allah saw to the success of his mission.
His Own Boss standing together in Salah, and this was the indication of the completion of his mission. And that is what made him the happiest. After the Salah is spoke to the Java in a clear voice, which was heard even outside the margin, and he said, Oh man, the fire is ready. subversive attacks are advancing like waves of darkness. By Allah, I shall not be held responsible for anything after this.
I never allowed anything that which the Quran has made legitimate.
I never allowed anything but that which the Quran made legitimate and I have never forbidden anything but that which the Quran has forbidden. And then he said again,
what are the last words were the curse of Allah? beyond those who take graves for their massage?
May Allah curse those who make the graves
as a place of worship?
Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, when will we learn?
When will we learn
this beautiful Deen came out of the dry clean air of the desert.

Don't do it in your own homes. And if anyone is doing it, advise them against it. Don't play with the deen of Allah. Otherwise, you will have Muhammad Rasul Allah as a witness against you on the Day of Judgment, and not as a Shafi for you. On the day of judgment.
He came back into his house
and he was lying down
in the lap of Ayesha delana. His head was
on her chest.
The brother of Ayesha delana came in the Santa Monica Delano came in and he had a miswak and looked at it and she realized what he wanted and she said, Do you want this miswak he said indicated with his head he nodded.
Eyes or delana said I took the miswak and I chewed it to make it soft. And then I gave it to him and he brushed his teeth with it.
