C'est la vie mother Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Shafi lamblia Eva mousseline, Mohammad Rasool Allah is Allah Allah Allah He, he was able to send them to
Morocco, Brothers Sisters, we are on Celebrity via it's one of the most
moments in the history of the Muslims. And one of the most critically important incidents in the Sierra in the biography of Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam.
And I think it therefore deserves and it's important for us to think about it in detail and try to get our minds around this and say, Why is this so critically important?
If you think about it,
the fundamental principle in Islam absolutely fundamental principle without with there's no Islam Islam itself, the meaning of the word itself is submission. submission to the will of Allah.
defined and described and informed to us by His Messenger, Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa ala himself sent Rasul Allah,
the will of Allah as informed to us by Rasul relicensing. Allah subhanho data wills us and wishes for us to worship him and nobody other than Him, and therefore, he said our team is Salah tally decree. He said establish Salah for my zikr How did we find that out because it was all so Selim told us because this was revealed to him. This message this order this command this instruction was given to Muhammad Mustafa SallAllahu, Medusa
and Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam then taught us how to pray. So if the Muslim and the Muslim hears this command of Allah subhanho wa taala, or people Salah and he says the big Allah Mala bago Allah I'm here I've had the right module, I am willing to obey you, I want to obey you, what must I do? What is the meaning of Salah? How must I fulfill this responsibility? How must I establish Salah Allah subhanaw taala did not describe it directly. Allah subhanaw taala did not instruct us directly Allah subhanaw taala said go to my Nabil Ali Salam and he will teach you and as soon as Allah sallam said, son lo Kamara to Moonee Valley.
Pray as you have seen me pray.
Now, this is an example that I always use this example because it is the best of examples. It refers to the peak of our, to the best of our Ibadah the best of our were acts of worship, which is Salah. It is the thing that we have been ordained to do. It has been ordained for us. And we have been ordered and instructed to do that five times a day. It is the most often act of worship that we are out of the formal prescribed acts of worship that we do five times a day, there's nothing we do more than that nothing we just prescribe more than that.
And this is an act of worship, which if we deliberately choose to leave, then we have left Islam, because there are soldiers that said I had to I had to let the bind on our Boehner home as Salah Forman out of the pocket, Guevara,
Coca Cola, these are also salami said the I had the dividing line the differentiator,
the boundary between the non Muslims and the Muslims is Salah, the one who has who leaves it has left Islam.
Obviously, this does not mean to missing Salah because of some legitimate excuse which is legitimate in the Sharia, for example, you are not well or whatever. But it refers to somebody who could have prayed who was in a situation physically able to pray but did not pray, refuse to break.
Either refuse, verbally or refuse by action or sorceress and upset this person has committed Cofer, this person has committed disbelief and this person therefore has
we don't pronounce the fear on somebody we don't say this person is no longer Muslim. But the fact is that the Allah ma the IMA the jurists have
prescribed various kinds of punishments for somebody who had who deliberately leaves Salah. So this is a very good example of understanding the importance
Hands off submission the importance of obedience. And this obedience is unconditional obedience. It is not unthinking obedience. It is not blind obedience. It is unconditional because we know who allies we know who are a source of Salamis. We know what he is we know what Revelation is, we know the position of revelation in our lives. We know that on the Day of Judgment, we will start before Allah subhanaw taala Gela general who the glorious and the magnificent and we will be judged on the basis of how we obeyed him, or refuse to or failed to obey Him.
We asked ultramarathoner to make us among the obedient and those who worship Allah subhanaw taala for his own sake, so it's very, very important for us to keep this in mind. And therefore, look at who they be. From this perspective. Will they be I was where the principle of submission was tested, like it was never tested before.
And Alhamdulillah the Sahaba rebound like LMH main all pass this test. There were two kinds of tests you know, they were first and foremost the test was for rasool Allah Azza wa sallam himself, shoot, if you put yourself in that position, that's good. I don't I don't think we'll put him put us in the position of the Rasul as a soul, but we put put ourselves in his position as a leader of the community who people believed in him. And this is not just believing, as you know, this person's my leader. This is believing as in the heart is the core of our theology, if somebody does not believe in Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam as the messenger of Allah as the Rasul of Allah as the hubby of Allah
and the Last and Final of them be after whom there is no Nubira. So, this is the core of I believe, if somebody does not believe that this person is not a Muslim.
So therefore, here he was. Second thing is, why were they even who they were in the first place, because as soon as an asylum saw in a dream, that he was making Tawaf of the Kaaba, and with him were the Muslims, that we know the dream of the Rasul alayhi salam, the dream of the Prophet dreams of the prophets, are ye they are revelation, these are, these are commands from Allah Subhana Allah.
So Allah subhanaw taala shows him in a dream. So he arouses
that we are going to make Omar So now imagine the people who are with him.
What does he believe he believes the dream is true, and that they are going to make
Did he go to who they were thinking is going to who they were? Or did he land and who they were because he just kept there on his way to Makkah.
Mohamed Salah Salem,
who believed that what he did, what he received was the truth and it was the truth. We have no doubts about this.
the people follow him the people go with him for what do I cover? Why because they're also really sad. I'm sad so and what the Russell said Sakala was Basa Rasul. Allah is Allah, Allah speaks the truth and the resident speaks the truth. So, therefore, we know that we are going to be going up there didn't have any doubts about this.
But when they reach there know what happens.
The opposite happens, they are not able to make over.
But think about that think about how what a tremendously challenging and tough situation this is for Rasul as an Islam himself. It is literally he gave his word to his people and is not able to keep his word because Allah subhanaw taala changed his command.
what is what is what is resource or what would anyone have done? What would you have done?
As soon as SLM for him
to stay firm, on his messenger ship itself was a huge challenge for him as an individual for him as apostle
and to continue to do what Allah is commanded him to do, which is to accept a treaty which is humiliating,
which is one sided, which is not fair and not just about accept it in silence.
To turn around and go back to Medina. That provides the animals shave your head, whatnot.
And Allah is not saying you got the suburb of making an ombre, Allah not saying that there is no Hadees to say that as soon as a Salam told the Sahaba do this, it is as good as as if you have made OMA because you had the NIA Therefore Allah will give you the sovereign
None of that Allah would have given them Insha Allah, that's a different issue. But the Rasul Allah is Allah in the presence of the Navi salaam, we don't go by our conjecture, we go about what he said, and he did not say that.
So here is this individual, the person who followed him who came there with this great desire to make ombre, the people from Makkah behind the road had not seen that their hometown for, you know, seven, eight years, depending on when they migrated.
And here was an opportunity here was a chance they could go there, they could maybe meet some relatives or see their place or whatnot, and make over at all of these desires in their hearts, they come there and they're not able to do it.
And on top of that, as soon as, as I was saying, sacrifice the and we didn't even say no getting the animals back. So there is no financial loss for you. You can bring them back the next year, because there was supposed to come the following year, no sacrifice the animals
shave your heads.
So we have to think about this, what kind of a huge, huge test this was. So it was a test for him as a result of himself as the novelist. He gave us what was people and inaudible to keep his word because not because of himself. But because the Command of Allah subhanaw taala changed.
The Sava went with the intention with the desire with the with the hope and complete certainty with not just from the sun, not wa saying it has what what is the what is the uncertainty about them?
Yet they are not able to do it.
So what is the principle that is being reinforced in this? The principle is somewhere in our that we hear and we obey.
hear and obey.
Why do you obey? Because Allah said so?
Why did you come here? Because Allah said we could make ombre Why are you going back with Allah say no, you can make
Is it logical? It is, is it reasonable?
Is it nice?
It does not matter.
It is logical, why? Because it is the logic is that it is the right of the one who commands to command.
Is it reasonable? Yes, it is never. Why? Because he knows the reason
this is billing me today.
May Allah protect us from ourselves?
This issue of hearing in a way without question
not without reason, without question. And what's the reason? The reason is because Allah said so
because Allah said so
you know the rear What was the reason? Because I love it. So
some others have said they don't have enough rehearsal. Why are we why are we accepting this thing? Let's fight. We are ready to fight.
They let Allah decide who wins who loses? There's no
he said no.
And he says this treaty which is one sided as long as
you take a vote from before designed the treaty,
I am supposed to sign this treaty What do you guys think? Give me a vote. How many for how many against
the goal with the majority with the biotic we did? Did you do any of this?
What was the confidence that he had in his people?
That he's not a member? He's not he's signing a treaty, which binds all of them,
not just himself.
It binds them all.
With what confidence Did he sign them? Did he sign the treaty? Because he had discovered they will follow me they will obey
and the proof true to that.
Even though they did not like the treaty
nobody can blame her anyone on the Sabbath says an hour that Anna was the only one spoke out against it but
a question it not even speak out because he's questioned it.
One nobody can claim that anyone around in Green was a zealot himself actually like to
dig into a cobra. They wanted to make water they didn't want to make treaties.
But the proof true to the covenant, they prove true to be Muslim. They prove to a true Muslim who the true the true Muslim, the one who complete the submits.
Allah say Yeah, well as in Amman. Oh
fulfill me cough button when I thought of your hot water Chetan in the hola como la said, oh you will believe completely and totally immerse yourself totally accept Islam totally entered Islam in every aspect of your life
not just one or the other everything
and do not follow the footsteps are shut down shut down and not even they're just the footsteps or they don't follow the footsteps of shaytan he is your truly our enemy either open and clear No
this was the test test of the enemy test funnels.
And this was passed
with complete and total success. And that's why it was well done in Nevada America movie now let's say today we have given you manifest victory.
And let you not say you will listen we have given you manifest. They've given you the victory. There was no battle. There was no land that was one there was no money, nothing involved. Victory, what? Victory of the How come of Allah victory of the order of Allah, the will of Allah the pleasure of Allah over whatever I wanted. And think about this. You're not talking here about you know, I wanted to go to the disco I didn't go because I thought on my death I thought about facing Allah subhanaw taala I wanted to tell a lie I wanted to back bite somebody. I did not do that because I held myself back in time because I remembered Allah subhanaw taala meaning that victory of Our Mercy at our our
sins victory of our evil desires victory of something that was prohibited anyway.
So our victory over that because we thought of Allah know what did this hammer what they wanted to worship Allah. They wanted to make O'Meara
they wanted to please Allah subhanho
wa Taala saying My pleasure is in you're not doing your mana Subhan Allah.
Look at that. Allah saying My pleasure is in not doing
come back next year this year. No, don't do it.
Did they argue
they accepted some errata
Yara, you want me to over I will do you don't be not to do it this time I will not do you want me never to do it again I will not do it.
Please think let us think let us reflect on these things.
So just a story to be told.
That's why I call this the final exam. This is where the Saba finally
final exam, the pastor and the past few flying colors.
And the result was Allah subhanaw taala gave them maca itself in two years. After that, even though the treaty was for 10 years, it never they didn't have to live to the 10 years, two years from the former Libya and like give the mucca mucca mucca This is yours you don't have to ask anybody's permission to come in here.
Make as many over as you like as you like want to stay a stay at one go back to one gonna go back whatever you want.
I'll give them
the second big thing that happened when in Missoula they are here and the reason why it was a victory is because we're the first time that the Americans actually acknowledged the solar system as a head of state
until this time, it was always my it's my cousin it's my neighborhood this is our family if I don't have others people don't don't interfere and so on.
But this was the first time they actually signed a treaty between Mohammed Mustafa SallAllahu ala Muhammad Abdullah
that was the thing about those who love okay understood
understood you they didn't work so well with our did not want to right so Allah because he said we don't believe this okay.
He's a marble nebula. We believe you Okay, fair enough.
But the treaty that the treaty is not being written between the horizon MCE and the house or others of Medina or the people of Medina no. This is a treaty between the horror age represented by swell with our
and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Whether he is the leader of the people in Medina, or the leader of the people, the whole world, it doesn't matter. It's he is the leader, we are talking to him and he is signing on behalf of whoever follows it, no matter where they live.
So for the first time that the forage act acknowledged Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam as
a leader in his own right, with the right and with the power to make treaties and to decide on the future of his people. And this is a very, very significant political step we have to understand. Read the Sierra from from all aspects of life.
last round of data Zilla Habana the computers who rely on hassle for you the best example is the example of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Example In one example, everything
in my social life in my political life in my family life, in my, in my business life in my academic, like every aspect of life, the best example is the example of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So if you if you read the Syrah from this angle, you say, well, here is a phenomenal,
phenomenal victory that happened,
where the courage of finally forced to acknowledge that this person is not just my interviewer, on my mind, all that remains. But it's not just a matter of day, the family squabble is not a squabble. This is a treaty between two nations to nation nations treaty between two people and you're signing the treaty with the leader of those people that in that, in that context, would normally have been a king or something like this. So here, here, you're signing a treaty with the king.
That is a very, very significant victory. From a political angle. If you look at celebrity via
an industry it also made it so we only look at one aspect of the 3d which is, if a Muslim goes to them, he must be returned. But if one of them comes to the
No, I mean, the other way around, if a Muslim goes to them, you know, they don't have to return it. Whereas if one of their people become the Muslim and comes to the Muslims, the Muslims are forced to return that person to the forest. So we are we, you know, we sometimes we think only of this, but think about the other especially to hear the people are saying here, the the coresh have also said that the Flores will be free to make treaties with whoever they want. But Ma Salam is also free to make treaties whenever he wants, meaning free to me, meaning what, I don't need your permission, that's not the meaning of freedom. Freedom here means that if he makes a treaty with somebody, then
the Quraysh will recognize that treaty as valid and enforce.
Now, again, it's a very significant, you might say, well, this is logical, you know, I don't need some sort of personal relevance in politically, you are acknowledging
that the right and the power of your political opponent
to act in a way, which is good for his people, for his goal for his aim for his cause. And you are saying, the political opponent has this power. And
we accept this power of the political
of the political opponent,
again, a very significant and major victory for the Muslims.
So Saudi Arabia is something that we need to very seriously think about, finally, in Saudi Arabia, is a vital role.
And in that, again, is this great mercy from Allah subhanaw taala. Where are those where there is a delay of IDM and let's say, Allah has handed over there.
So Allah is saying that those who gave by at Rasulullah, saw Salah
and that announced Allah is pleased with them, and they are pleased with the last month and now the Alon who are
now in that whole story, there is what is called a story of the man of the red with the red camera. It was one of them,
who had one RED camera,
and when does one of them
sat under the tree in the area of the banana jar, and he called the people to come and give him via, to fight to the death,
if necessary, in
if necessary, because said there had been
there was a rumor that he had been captured and killed. So do events to avenge him
if necessary to fight that they were giving this bad is blessed to say that they will fight to the end.
So this man was the only one who did not use this pledge, and he went and hid behind his camera.
They say ALLAH forgive everyone except that man. Now, think about this. What was the need for this one metric? Well, what was the need for that incident? All of these things, everything happens with the will of Allah. So there's one man, everyone it underlines a couple of First of all, it underlines the fact that those who
gave their buyer they gave their pleasure Mr. Salem did that voluntarily it's not that never nobody was forced.
And the evidence of that is that the man who did not give it was not forced to give it.
Nobody put a sword to his neck, no who said, No, come here, come and come and come and give the agent give me a choice. So there was we have freedom in our religion, to obey or disobey. But there are consequences towards those who obey become the people who Allah subhanaw taala praises, and Allah subhanaw taala promises to reward and those who don't obey are among those who unless said they did not obey, which means they are not in the protection, which Allah gives to the others.
If Allah wants to forgive them, He forgives them who doesn't want to forgive them, they will be punished. But definitely they have not done anything to earn that forgiveness and to have that guarantee for themselves.
And that's the choice you make.
And so now they approved that choice as well, that even in that situation
there was a choice. What party this man as well as the other exercise that choice, one party for their favor and the other one against himself.
You don't have choices, when no choice is free, every choice has a consequence.
And that's the reason why it's very important to think about what choices we might be making in life.
And what might be the consequences of those choices.
Before you choose, like you do anywhere you go shopping, you look at the price tag of the thing you want to buy it maybe something will look so nice, so beautiful, wonderful. Oh my god, I must have it right now. But when you look at the price tag, you say, Well, I can't afford this.
I cannot afford this. And there will be probably a line there if you're especially if you're shopping in America, or you will give you a loan, you can pay for it over time.
At this rate of interest, which means what which means is even less affordable.
Because I don't want to borrow money on interest and become an enemy of Allah
and invite Allah's punishment on myself. For some material thing which I'm buying whatever that thing is, is not want that.
You making the choices.
Just like that we must make choices for our lives, and their action they choose to do and what I choose not to do.
Both have consequences. Not choosing not to do something is also a choice. Choosing to remain silent and a time when you should speak the truth is a choice.
Choosing to speak in favor of the oppressor because of whatever personal reasons you have is also a choice.
Choosing to speak against the oppressor. For those who are being oppressed is also a choice. This has consequences that also has consequences.
You asked the last round of data to help us to understand this beautiful religion.
And the way to understand this beautiful region is to read the Sierra and study the Sierra of rasa rasa salaam, the life of
the Sierra is the workbook. It is the field book. It is the practical guide to what Allah subhanaw taala ordered us in the Quran.
There is no guidance except to
the guidance of the Navi is the best guidance.
The Kitab of Allah is the best book
in Africa, and easy Kitab Allah hydel Howdy, howdy Muhammad Sallallahu.
The best speech is the kingdom of Allah the best guidance, the guidance of Muhammad
will guide us to how to live by the Kitab of Allah by the book of Allah.
Ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to understand this beautiful religion and to practice and to and to benefit from it in this life and the next this is a beautiful beauty of Islam. Islam does not just sacrifice, your comfort and your wealth and your you know, whatever you have in life and become a beggar on the street if you want to agenda No.
And that's a gift from what we have given you. Color do not say give everything no give from what you have we have given you
and Allah will reward us in keeping with his majesty and grace. But there's nothing without action understand that also. There's nothing or action less than give. Allah did not say even if you don't give It's okay. I will give you the unknown
Jana has to be bought. Just like we invest in anything in this life. Jana has to be invested in.
That investment is called good deeds has.
He asked Allah subhanaw taala to be pleased with us and never to be displeased and help us to understand the wonderful lessons from the C RAF is that we are a set up and to practice them in our next sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi
