Silla Rhonda Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala shortfilm ba will mousseline Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Allah Allah He was heavy he was seldom does Lima and cathedral cathedra for Mavado.

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

My dear brothers and sisters,

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

I thought it would be appropriate for us, especially in this month or bhusawal to talk about the leadership of rasool Allah is Allah Holly while he was abusive,

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

and so I'm starting today, inshallah series of hota

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

on the leadership of Rasulullah, sallAllahu sallam,

00:00:43 --> 00:00:51

Allah subhanaw taala sent us into this world, to give to contribute, Allah did not send us into this world to take.

00:00:53 --> 00:01:44

The best example we have of how to contribute and what to contribute, is the life of Rasulullah sallallahu Ali Hussain who said, his life is rich and full of lessons. It has been so well documented, that it is incumbent upon us to try to see how lessons from his life are applicable today in a world that is, in principle, very similar to the world he lived in. My premise is this, since he was able to change his world and take his people from being the most insignificant, oppressed and weakest to becoming the predominant admired and strongest in just one generation. If we learn how he was able to do it, we will be able to succeed in our world today inshallah.

00:01:46 --> 00:01:49

Let me begin by the most sincere praise

00:01:50 --> 00:02:39

is the praise of the enemy. So let me start with that. Abdullah nabasa Allahu in a hadith in Bukhari Sharif says, I've also van been herb, who was who at that time was not a Muslim, Abu Sufian been herb informed me that Heraclius summon him while after salehoo they via when there was a truce between the soul lies or settlement, the Koresh I was aware and was with his trading caravan in Sham. Sham is that area, which today we call it Syria, but it's not only Syria, Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan. I was aware and his companions went to Heraclius at Ilia, which is Jerusalem. Heraclius was in his court surrounded by his Roman nobility. He called for his translator who

00:02:39 --> 00:02:56

translating Heraclius question said to them, Who amongst you is closely related to that man who claims to be a prophet Sallallahu he said I was aware of the Law No, at that time was not most of as I mentioned, replied, I am the nearest relative to him.

00:02:58 --> 00:03:04

Heraclius said bring him I was gonna bring him close to me and make his companion stand behind you.

00:03:05 --> 00:03:33

I was an added Heraclius told his translator to tell my companions that he wanted to put some questions to me regarding that man Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam, and that if I told a lie day my companions should contradict me. I was an added by Allah. Had I not been afraid of my companions labeling me a liar, I would not have spoken the truth about the Prophet sallallahu.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:54

The first question that Heraclitus asked me said I was if he had was, what is his family status among you? I replied, He belongs to a good noble family amongst us. Heraclius asked, Has anybody amongst you ever claimed the same that is prophethood before him?

00:03:55 --> 00:04:10

I replied. No. He asked, was anybody amongst his ancestors? A king? replied, No. Heraclius asked do the nobles or the poor FOLLOW Him who follows Him the nobles, rich people are poor?

00:04:12 --> 00:04:14

I replied, It is the poor who follow him.

00:04:16 --> 00:04:59

Then, Heraclitus asked, Are his followers increasing or decreasing? I said, I replied, They are increasing. He asked, Does anybody amongst those who embrace his religion become displeased and renounce that religion afterwards? I replied, No. Heraclius asked, Have you ever accused him of telling lies before his claim to be a prophet? I replied, No. Heraclius asked, does he break his promises? I was again says. I replied, No, we are a truce with him, but we do not know what he will do in it. I could not find any opportunity to say anything against him.

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

except that this is what I was, if you had said, I am not saying other Law No, which I should be saying, after the name of this habit or the alarm, because I'm speaking about Abu Sofia, no, there are no at a time when he was not a Muslim. And so therefore, in that time when I was speaking about him, I'm not saying, I want this to be clear, please. Heraclius asked, Have you ever had a war with him? He replied, Yes.

00:05:26 --> 00:05:54

Then he asked, What was the outcome of the battle? I replied, sometimes he was victorious. And sometimes we can actually asked, What does he order you to do? I said, He tells us to worship Allah alone, and not to worship anything along with him, and to renounce our ancestral gods. He honors us to pray, to speak the truth, to be chaste. And to keep good relations with our kin.

00:05:55 --> 00:05:59

Heraclius has asked the translator to convey to me the following.

00:06:00 --> 00:06:47

I asked you about his family. And your reply was that he belonged to a very noble family. In fact, all the Ambia all the profits come from noble families, amongst their respective people. I question knew whether anybody else amongst you claimed such a thing. You said no. If you had said yes, I would have thought that he was following the previous band statement. Then I asked you whether any one of his ancestors was a king. You said no. If you had said yes, I would have thought that he wanted to take back his ancestral kingdom. I asked whether he was ever accused of telling lies before he said what he said. And you said no. So I wondered how a person who does not tell a lie

00:06:47 --> 00:06:50

about others could ever tell a lie about Allah.

00:06:52 --> 00:07:03

And then asked you whether the rich people followed him or the poor, you replied that it was the poor who followed him. In fact, all prophets have been followed by poor people first,

00:07:04 --> 00:07:17

then asked you whether his followers were increasing or decreasing. We replied that they were increasing and in fact, this is the way of truth till it is complete in all respects.

00:07:21 --> 00:08:13

i Father asked you whether there was anybody who after embracing his religion became displeased and discarded his religion. You said no, in fact, this is the sign of true faith, when its delight enters the hearts and mixes with them completely. I asked you whether he had ever betrayed, you said No, indeed, the prophets never betray. Then I asked you what he ordered you to do. You replied that he ordered you to worship Allah alone, jello, jello, and not to worship anything along with him and forbade you to worship idols, and ordered you to pray, to speak the truth and to be chaste. If you if what you have said is true. Then he SallAllahu Sallam will very soon occupy this place underneath

00:08:13 --> 00:08:22

my feet. I knew it from the scriptures that he was going to appear, but I did not know that he would be from you.

00:08:24 --> 00:08:45

If I could reach him, I would go immediately to meet him. And if I were with him, I would certainly wash his feet. Heraclius then asked for us online is a lot it's a love letter to him, which was delivered by the hare bin Khalifa al kalbi or the alarm to the governor of Basra.

00:08:48 --> 00:09:24

The letter said Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in the name of Allah geladeira Lu, the magnificent and the Merciful. This letter is from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abdullah, the slave of Allah will soon Allah and His messenger to Heraclius the ruler of by the time please be upon him who follows the right path, Salah moon, Allah ala money while Buddha Furthermore, I invite you to Islam and if you become a Muslim, you will be safe and Allah Jalla Jalla who will double your reward.

00:09:26 --> 00:09:59

But if you reject this invitation to Islam, you will be committing a sin by misguiding your people. I decided to Allah subhanaw taala statement I will be live in a shaitana regime Kuya halaal kita Vita lo Isla Kenema tiene Saba invader na Verbena Khun Allah or Buddha illa Allah wa ala Lucia cabbie Shea wala yet visa Barguna Abaddon Alibaba Mindu Illa. For in our llove Apolo for

00:10:00 --> 00:10:04

All shadow be and Muslim own.

00:10:05 --> 00:10:38

In total Allah, Allah subhanaw taala said, oh people of the Scripture come to a word common to you and us that we worship none but Allah subhanho wa Taala and that we associate nothing in worship with him jello jello, and that none of us shall take others as our rub as lords beside, besides Allah. Then if the turn away, say, bear witness that we are Muslims who have submitted to Allah. Also Vianne

00:10:39 --> 00:11:13

are louder than added. When Heraclius had finished his speech and had read the letter there was pandemonium in the royal court. We were turned out of the court. I told my companions that the question of imminent CAPTCHA which was the name given to the source a seller has become so prominent that even the king of bananas for the Byzantines is afraid of it. Then I started to become sure that he SallAllahu wasallam would be the Conqueror in the near future till I embraced Islam and this is in Makati.

00:11:15 --> 00:11:25

My brothers and sisters I say to you that the key is to become extraordinary. First let me try to define what I mean by extraordinary for that is the key to the rest.

00:11:26 --> 00:11:30

To God the French historian and another critic of Islam,

00:11:31 --> 00:11:53

Alphonse dilemma time. He said, If greatness of purpose, smallness of means, and astounding results are the three criteria of human greatness of human genius, who would dare to compare any great man in history with Mohamed Salah Haile Selim, philosopher, Apostle,

00:11:55 --> 00:12:32

prophet and messenger, legislator, Warrior, conqueror of ideas, restore of national, of rational belief of a cult without images, the founder of 20 terrestrial empires, and one spiritual empire. That is Muhammad salallahu Alaihe. Salam, as regards all standards, by which human greatness may be measured, we may well ask is that any man greater than he, and this is in his book, history, dilemma Turkey, which is the history of Turkey, and is this Jewish law.

00:12:33 --> 00:13:21

The key is to do more than others think is wise. To expect more than others think is reasonable, to risk more than others think is safe, and to deliver more than others expect. To be extraordinary is to be abnormal, in the best ways to listen to a message in the mind that others can only wonder it to match to a beat that others are unable to hear, yet to be able to inspire them to follow him step. It is only those who are extraordinary, who are inspiring to live is not simply to draw breath. If one aspires to lead one must do more than merely exist, one must do what nobody else does. Not because he wants to impress them, but so that they will be able to see that it is possible

00:13:21 --> 00:13:48

for them also to do the same. There's nothing sublime in pretending to be less than who you are, and less than what you are. What is required of the leader is that he constantly pits himself against his own assumptions, and self imposed boundaries. Because the only real, the only real barrier to surmount is in one's own mind. The chains of slavery are in the mind.

00:13:50 --> 00:13:57

The leader must have the courage to go where nobody dare to venture before in the world of the minds and spirits of men.

00:13:58 --> 00:14:47

He must question what was always assumed to be correct. He must challenge beliefs handed down from generation to generation and accepted as being real. He must stand for the truth. No matter what the cost. He must support the oppressed, the weak and deprived and stand up to the raw power of the presses, no matter who they may be. All these things help the leader to inspire trust, the very foundation of leadership. A leader must not only be trusted personally, but people must have faith that to follow Him will benefit them. Leading by definition is from the front. And so leading is a matter of great courage. People don't rise to low expectations, they rise to high expectations.

00:14:47 --> 00:14:59

People need leaders they can look up to not down on Rosaura sallam said the standard or extraordinary leadership so convincingly and clearly that even his worst enemies were

00:15:00 --> 00:15:39

forced to speak in his favor. To be extraordinary is not a choice of a leader. It is an essential part of being for anyone who aspires to lead. It's an essential part of being for anyone who aspires to lead to be extraordinary in ways that people find inspiring, invigorating, energizing and empowering only the courageous can encourage. There is nobody in the history of mankind, who exemplified the extraordinary, extraordinary leader in every aspect of his life, as did Mohammed Salah Ali, right only He will save yourself.

00:15:40 --> 00:16:11

That is why his companions have a desire to her image being displayed, and level of loyalty to him that is a benchmark in the annals of history. They loved him and he loved them. May Allah subhanaw taala fill our hearts with love for himself and his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and keep us in the company of all those who try to follow the blessed sunnah for so lies and sell them in excellence. That is the surest road to success, both in this world and in the
