dharana Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala VA mursaleen Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira

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

mavado. My dear brothers and sisters, we are living through some difficult times and so therefore it is very important for us to keep connected with our foundation and our foundation is the love of Warhammer Salalah highly, highly useable.

00:00:31--> 00:00:40

We are people who love Allah subhanho wa Taala and we love Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, the last and final messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:00:41--> 00:00:50

my brothers and sisters, having said that, I asked myself and I asked you to ask yourself, do we really love Rasulullah Rasul?

00:00:51--> 00:01:30

I know the the question may sound like a silly question to you because of course we are Muslims. Of course we love Rosaura Salah, but I want you to really think about this and say, do I really love Mohammed Salah Hollywood? And like answering any such question If the answer is yes or no, whichever it is, the thing to do is to say what is the evidence of that? So if I say that I truly, truly love Mohammed sallallahu sallam, then what is the evidence for that? This is not to show anybody else it is for myself. I need to know the evidence. I need to know why I say that. I love Mohammed Salah, Salah

00:01:31--> 00:01:49

brothers and sisters. As you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered us to love Mohammed Salah lahari he while he was Abu Salah, and one day we will meet Allah subhanho data, there is no doubt about this. And he geladeira Allah who will ask us

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

when he does when we meet him. And when he asks us, what is the answer that we will give him? I think this is a very important thing that we need to

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

to ask ourselves and have that evidence in our lives.

00:02:07--> 00:02:15

My brothers and sisters, Allah subhanaw taala called rasulillah salam, his nehama he called him his blessing

00:02:17--> 00:03:09

on us believers and that is why it is so critical to know who he was. And to appreciate him and to love him. Love for us so seldom is not an option. It's not something that you can you can you can have or you can leave it alone and not have. It is a part of our Eman And without it. It is impossible to be a Muslim. This is not my opinion. This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala himself stated in his column Al Quran Al Karim and I also realize rasilla mentioned that in his teachings in the Hadith sunovion. Allah said in the famous ayah Surah Tauba out wilhemina shaytani r rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim. Coleen can comb, comb.

00:03:10--> 00:04:07

Comb, comb wash era to comb what am wallonie turnoff to Moo Ha. What is your rotten duck Shona casada wa Waal Masaki no todo na Hubei la comida la he was also he was he had in fees Avi, photo robbers who had to low v armory. Allahu la de la Komal. First up a last round that I said which means say to them over Hamas, Allah Salam say to the people say to the believers, a to the Muslims, say to everybody, say, if your father's meaning here, anytime these kinds of statements are made, both genders are included. Say, if your father's meaning fathers and mothers, your sons, meaning sons and daughters, your brothers meaning brothers and sisters, your wives, meaning wives and

00:04:07--> 00:04:33

husbands, your families, your kindred, your extended families, all those who are related to you, no matter how distantly and no matter how in which way, the wealth that you have accumulated, the wealth that you have gained, the commerce of businesses in which you fear or decline and the dwellings the houses, which you have built, and you look at them and you feel very happy, in which you delight. If all of these things

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

are dearer to you, if you love them more, then you love Allah and His Messenger sallallahu sallam, and if you and loving the work of the deen of Allah, striving hard in his cause these three things if you love these more than you love Allah, if you love these more than you love them, and if you love these more than striving in the path of Allah subhanaw taala

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

London says then go and wait, go away Allah does not need you. Allah says then wait until Allah subhanho wa Taala brings about his decision of torment and punishment on you. And Allah does not guide the people who are alpha zuccon who are rebellious and disobedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:05:22--> 00:06:05

I want you to reflect on this, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned all those relationships and possessions which are not only dearest to us, but which are permissible they are permitted and as for example, in the cases of parents and children and so on, being good to them, serving them, our rewardable Allah will reward us when we do that inshallah. But in this case, Allah subhanaw taala said, that even though these are permissible even though they are rewardable, if you love them more than you love Allah subhanho wa Taala and rasulillah salam, then go away and wait for the punishment of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:06:07--> 00:06:51

If we love these things, more than we love Allah, more than we love our solar system, and more than we love striving in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala then Allah says Allah has no need for you and go and wait for the punishment of Allah Allah promised to punish and alert then further said, well, Allahu La Jolla del Carmen fossati. Allah does not guide the rebellious people meaning that if you love these things, more than you love Allah subhanho wa Taala and Rasul Allah is Allah is Allah when striving in the path of Allah, then you would be counted among the rebellious people, and you will be liable to be punished by Allah Subhana Allah, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

his punishment.

00:06:53--> 00:07:19

brothers sisters, the thing to understand is the reason why we must love them in this way. It is not only because he was the most lovable of people, that is a bonus. We love him because Allah subhanaw taala told us to love him. And because obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala and obeying Rasul Allah is Allah sell them is the condition of entering Jenna.

00:07:21--> 00:07:49

oma UT la hora solo foccacia, horserace Manasa only the one obeys Allah subhanaw taala and obey His resources Allah, only that person will achieve ultimate success which is gentle, joyful, obedience, fulfillment of our life's purpose meaning obeying, as if by obeying, we are fulfilling the life's our life's purpose, seeing obedience as being the life being the purpose of our lives

00:07:51--> 00:08:04

can come only through love, not through fear. And that is why we must know who Mohammed Salah is to know Him, to love Him and to try to become like him.

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

The question is,

00:08:10--> 00:08:12

let me ask you this question, which is

00:08:14--> 00:08:18

if Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam walks into our machines right now,

00:08:19--> 00:08:22

just now imagine if you want shut your eyes and think about this.

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

And Sarah solos wrestling just walked into our machine

00:08:28--> 00:08:28

and we look at it.

00:08:30--> 00:08:36

How many of us will say wow, that's an impressive man. I wonder who he is.

00:08:38--> 00:08:39

Right.

00:08:41--> 00:08:45

And how many of us will say Allah Subhana Allah

00:08:46--> 00:08:50

assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Yasser Allah.

00:08:51--> 00:09:00

And how many of us will say, Allah Subhana Allah assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Yara sola.

00:09:02--> 00:09:04

laka jolliff. Tana yes au Dona

00:09:06--> 00:09:08

marhaba de comida Habibullah

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

how many of us will say that?

00:09:12--> 00:09:20

My brothers sisters, obviously that depends on whether we recognize them or not.

00:09:21--> 00:09:33

This this is a strange thing to say to Muslims, who rely upon his father who rely upon his intercession

00:09:35--> 00:09:49

on the Day of Judgment, and who looked forward to that and will ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for the meeting with him on his house alcocer and who hope to follow him over the Syrah

00:09:51--> 00:09:54

and who seek his company in general videos.

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

I asked Allah subhanho della gente de la for all of this for all of

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

Have you?

00:10:01--> 00:10:08

The question is, how appropriate is it? If despite wanting all these things,

00:10:09--> 00:10:13

we cannot recognize the solar Solomon museum? Because we don't know him.

00:10:15--> 00:10:21

The tragic reality is that most Muslims do not know what resocialize rosov look like.

00:10:22--> 00:10:31

To add insult to injury, the CEO of Rosaura SLM is not taught as a specific, distinct subject, even in our modalities.

00:10:33--> 00:10:55

I've never understood the reason or logic for this, nor have I understood the response that many Allah has given me that Rasulullah sallallahu his life and appearance and conduct is learned by students while studying his Hadees. My question is, is the life of Rasulullah Selim not important enough to be studied by itself?

00:10:56--> 00:11:05

Especially when Allah subhanaw taala ordered us to emulate him and promised His love Jalla Jalla Allah who, for those who do that?

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

How can we emulate someone we don't know?

00:11:10--> 00:11:26

Why must we believe that for something like this, something so critical? It is sufficient to learn it by the way, instead of focusing on it totally for the purpose of knowing with the intention of following him?

00:11:29--> 00:11:33

My brothers and sisters, so what would we see? When we looked at him?

00:11:34--> 00:12:26

I'm quoting from various houses of, of Shabbat, Allah mohammedia, also called shama tirmidhi, compiled by Imam Mohammed Isa Mohammed bin Isa tirmidhi, the student of Imam Mohammed bin Ismail al Bukhari, about whom his teacher says Buhari Rasul Allah, Buhari said about Timothy, who was his student, he said, I have benefited more from you than you have benefited from me. Now this shows the caliber and the possession of raw materials. Of course it also shows the generosity and humility of Allah May Allah subhanaw taala fill our hearts with love of his messenger Muhammad salah and love for his llama will Huck the great scholars of this Deen who dedicated their lives and the Sahaba for

00:12:26--> 00:12:34

so seldom thanks to whom we know today what rasulillah should look like. So now my brother sisters, imagine this.

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

You just entered our machine. Look at it.

00:12:40--> 00:12:40

What do you see?

00:12:42--> 00:12:46

The first thing I would say that you would become aware of a beautiful aroma

00:12:48--> 00:12:53

like the most beautiful scents that will completely permeate the atmosphere.

00:12:55--> 00:13:02

That is the perfume the natural perfume of Al Mustafa of Rasul Allah is.

00:13:04--> 00:13:05

So what will you see?

00:13:06--> 00:13:09

You see a man of wheatish complexion,

00:13:11--> 00:13:27

looking at whom fills your hearts with such all and majesty, that you automatically lower your gaze and you're unable to look at his glorious countenance because of the haber that Allah subhanaw taala bestowed on him.

00:13:28--> 00:13:31

Then when you gain some courage, and you look up,

00:13:32--> 00:13:39

you see a face that glows with inner light, as if the rays of the sun are reflected from it.

00:13:41--> 00:13:48

You see a face that is brighter and more glorious than the full moon on the 14th of the night of the month.

00:13:49--> 00:14:01

The Night of the 14 eyes that are set wide apart, but not to white, with pupils that are very dark, surrounded by the sclera which is very white

00:14:03--> 00:14:07

eyebrows, long and arched, but not joined together.

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

And long eyelashes.

00:14:10--> 00:14:19

You will see his truthfulness, his intelligence and his kindness reflected in and shining in those eyes. As you look as he looks at you.

00:14:20--> 00:14:27

You will love him, as did everyone who looked at him with faith in their hearts.

00:14:28--> 00:14:54

He was a medium height, neither too tall and lanky, nor too short and stocky. But when he was among people who always appear to be the tallest, his head, beautifully proportioned, neither too big nor too small, neither square or round, but in between his hair, very dark and thick and wavy, coming down to his ear lobes.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

His neck long, but not too long and beard

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

thick, black and down to the middle of his chest.

00:15:05--> 00:15:17

He had a very nice temple, which became visible when he was angry. It would swell and throb, but inshallah you will not see that.

00:15:18--> 00:15:46

His mouth wide, always with a smile that illuminated the world, his teeth, beautiful, shining, with a slight gap between the middle incisors, a sign of beauty, his shoulders, wide and muscular, with a full chest and no protruding belly, his arms, not too long, not too short, but proportionate, muscular and powerful.

00:15:48--> 00:15:55

his bones and joints large and strong, but not excessively large, his legs strong and powerful.

00:15:56--> 00:16:01

his palms and the soles of his feet. fleshes

00:16:02--> 00:16:09

he walked with purpose, leaning slightly forward relatively fast, but not arrogantly.

00:16:10--> 00:16:47

He used to lean slightly forward, as if descending from a mountain. He wore a turban tied over a helmet or a cap, or sometimes just wound around his blessed head without anything underneath it. His shirt long, extending below his knees, but not all the way down to the ankles with a slit on either side, his trousers wide, ending above the ankles just below the middle of his calves. The purpose of both was to give complete freedom of movement to the limbs.

00:16:48--> 00:16:50

Listen carefully to people

00:16:51--> 00:16:58

because you want to recognize him when you see him. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to show you Rasul Allah is Allah, Allah me Audrey.

00:16:59--> 00:17:14

I asked a lot of decree that you say Salaam to him in person. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to decree that you meet him on his house alcocer and that you greet him there and he returns your greeting? asked myself when you

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

what then will we say to him,

00:17:19--> 00:17:23

especially about what we did to his Dean. After

00:17:25--> 00:17:32

that let us see how he sabarimala Haley McBain loved him because the Sahaba our gold standard

00:17:34--> 00:17:36

narrated Abba and has been Mardi Gras Viola Han,

00:17:37--> 00:17:45

the hardeeville Mustafa, the personal servant of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was spent 10 years of his life

00:17:46--> 00:17:50

in the service of rosov until he passed away.

00:17:51--> 00:18:07

And has been Malaga delana Who said I saw the Brightest Day in Medina and I saw the darkest day in Medina. They asked him which day he said the brighter the Brightest Day was the day when Russell lysosome came from Mecca to Medina. And the darkest day was when the solar Solar System passed away.

00:18:10--> 00:18:38

This announcement Malika Dorado narrates and said that a solar cell of said none of you will have faith. None of you will have a man till he loves me more than his father, his children and all of mankind. And these are this isn't Buhari? None of you will have faith until he loves me more than he loves his father, meaning father and mother, his children and all of mankind.

00:18:40--> 00:18:45

You can see how these are these reflects directly from the Toba which I decided before you already

00:18:47--> 00:19:02

none other Have you seen Buhari also, and has been madiga Delano. He says A man came and asked us about the day of judgment about the hour saying when will the hour be Rasulullah sallallahu ala rasulillah salam Sallam

00:19:03--> 00:19:18

said to him What have you prepared for it? The man said nothing Yasser Allah, except that I love Allah. And I love his messenger Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said to him, you will be with those whom you love.

00:19:20--> 00:19:52

You will be with those whom you love, and has been Malaga. vellano said we have we meaning the Sahaba have never been so glad as we were on hearing that saying of a solar cell and that is you will be with whom you love. Therefore, another family continues. He said therefore I love Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and Abu Bakr and Omar Abdullah and Omar, and I hope that I will be with them because of my love for them, though my deeds are not like this.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

Now this is a statement of humility of unassuming America vellano because Abba are each of them.

00:20:00--> 00:20:11

Unique in themselves, and each of them is somebody about whom Allah subhanaw taala said that he is pleased with them. There is no praise higher than that for anybody in this world.

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

It is related that a man came to Roswell Isola Salah. And

00:20:22--> 00:20:36

he said to him, Yasser Allah, Allah, Allah, I love you more than my family and my possessions. Meaning I love you more than anybody else. Anything else, I remember you, and I cannot wait until I can come and look at you.

00:20:37--> 00:20:48

I remember that I will die, and you will die. And I know that when you enter Jannah you will be raised up with the prophets. When I enter it, I will not see

00:20:49--> 00:20:59

my magic this man. He is saying that when I enter Jannah the pleasure of genda means nothing to me. If I cannot see

00:21:01--> 00:21:46

and see this is the love of Marsala. He's saying that gender itself has no meaning for me if it does not contain Mohammed, Salah meaning that if I don't have access to the source of solar, if I cannot see it in his company if I cannot see him if I can't talk to the back and says to him, that gender has no value for me. So no Salaam kept silent he didn't say anything to him. until Allah subhanaw taala revealed this ayah later, where I'm not sure how the silver mine up LA or la sala de la la la Vina Anima la la mina Bina was in deep in our show diversity has una una economica, Allah. Allah said, Whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be with those whom

00:21:46--> 00:22:03

Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed the prophets that have been the Cydia to the people of truth, the Shahada, the martyrs, and the Salah here the righteous people and such people are the best of company villarica hacer una una economica.

00:22:06--> 00:22:31

When this ad was revealed, Rasulo zoom call that man and he recited this I asked him what a beautiful Bashara this shows us that love for Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger Salah Salah must be proven by obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala and Rasul Allah is as I sell them, if there is no obedience, there is no love, no matter how much we may claim to the contrary.

00:22:33--> 00:23:20

May Allah subhanaw taala count as among those who loved and obeyed also lies Allah values Allah and grant us the vision of Rosaura Salaam in our dream in this life and meeting with him on the Day of Judgment. My brothers and sisters, Allah subhanaw taala sent His messenger Muhammad wa sallam as the best example for all of humankind, to follow for those who look forward to the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala and his pleasure and Allah said locka Gunilla COVID, rasulillah useful to Hazara for whom livan livan Gan Aru la ha, well, yo ma Hera was a Corolla Cassia. Allah said which means, indeed, in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu ala Muhammad wa salam, you have a good example to

00:23:20--> 00:24:04

follow for him who hopes in the meeting with Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah subhanho wa Taala a great deal. To love Rasul Allah says lm is not about singing, Rashid, and holding meetings on some date and W Lauer. It is about living our lives according to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, that is what Allah subhanaw taala told us to do. It is about emulating Rasul of Solomon everything that we say or do in our appearance, our actions, our dealings, our worship our society, our families, our relationships, it is to change ourselves or our beliefs or our attitudes or our actions and our speech and and so on. It is to change our occupations, our fashion, our

00:24:04--> 00:24:21

friends and our social lives. It is to do whatever it takes to ensure that our lives reflect the beauty, the goodness and the glory of the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, what is the reward for this?

00:24:22--> 00:24:42

Told us? Allah said Korean condemned to Hebron ALLAH hafiz Tabby oni you have ipco La Jolla for la COVID de novo como la for over him in Surah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala said say over masala Salim to all of mankind. If you really love Allah, then follow me

00:24:43--> 00:24:58

and follow me for the viewing, then what will happen? You will emulate me imitate me Follow me or what will happen if you do that. Allah will love you. Allah will love you

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

and He will forget

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

Have you ever since and Allah Subhana Allah is oft forgiving, Most Merciful? I want you to sit quietly and reflect on this. What is the meaning of Allah will love you?

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

What will it mean in your life?

00:25:15--> 00:25:20

What will it mean in the context of whatever anxiety you're currently living with?

00:25:21--> 00:25:27

How will it help you in this world? And what is the benefit of being the Beloved of Allah?

00:25:28--> 00:25:31

When we meet him on the day of judgment?

00:25:32--> 00:25:39

I want to end with a final Hadith, which tells us why we can't but love Rasul Allah. Hi, Salah Harrison.

00:25:40--> 00:25:48

00:25:56--> 00:25:59
