For remember Allah guides them can lead astray and whomever Allah leaves a strain on can ever guide.
And I testify that no one is worthy of worship, but Allah and Allah alone without any partners, the true supreme King, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in truth, His Prophet and his servant and His Messenger. Oh, you have believed have the temple of Allah, the dutifulness to Allah, the consciousness of Allah present in your life, at all times in all places, to the extent that the most great deserves subhana wa Taala and do not die do not get caught off guard by death except in a state of complete and total, consistent, loving, willing surrender to Allah state of Islam.
To begin, all throughout the Quran, Allah azza wa jal has reassured the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam to ignore the insults and the offenses that are hurled at him.
And he has said to him also in the cafe Naka, Mr. Xie will certainly suffice you we will be sufficient and enough for you regarding all of these who mock you who stands in the mockers.
And when they were utterly relentless, unrelenting for so long a lot as diligence even said to them at one point, man, can I have one No, la young Sora hola houfy. dunia era, whoever does not think or whoever thinks that our love will not support him. Support the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this world as well and the hereafter not just the Hereafter, but in this world and the year after for Leos did be suburban Isla sama, then let them try the following
a very serious heavy language then let them tie a rope to the ceiling for you did the suburb in Isla sama familia Akbar Allah let them cut off their airways fairly evenly.
And let them check if that maybe that will do away with the burning inside of them.
Meaning because maybe you're not witnessing it is going to be your only exit, but it's not going to be a relief. But so long as this world remains a lot support for his messengers on the
And we see this in his life and after his life, how many have come in when to try to insult our profits on the model either yourself sallam, and he remains an erasable la salatu wa sallam shining ever bright. Who knows who he is who knows who Abu lahab is, who knows who the enemies of the prophet SAW Selim are except the people who discovered them because they were studying the life of Muhammad. It was their focus on Mohammed, that they happen to come across his contemporary enemies, contemporary opponents, aside from that, ask an average person in the street who's epogen who's in the lab,
those people that insisted until their death, to oppose and to vilify and to demonize our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam were discarded into the trash cans of history, as they say, and not just that their children
became supporters of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam Abu Gen son crema was of the heroes of Islam,
I will either
lead became of the heroes of Islam, Allah also knew what his son and his son
became the leaders and the pioneers and the heroes of Islam. The difference between the father and the son was what their stands for Mohammed Ali was sallam. And
it is mentioned that under the laws would say that we used to find in the old scriptures like what the records that we've come across
That's held up, you know, there's so much mix up there. They used to find in there tell it all he means before Islam Mohammed farrakhan vainness Mohammed is the difference between all people your stands for Mohammed will determine your success and your failure you being remembered you being prosperous and you being doomed you being forgotten.
And that is why the most remembered generation and the most prosperous generation
in both worlds was the generation of the Sahaba.
The very best community ever brought out to humanity.
The difference was they had unique, distinct love and support for the Prophet Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam. That's what did it for them. That's what raised their mentioned that's what elevated their ranks. If I were to share with you just one day, dimension of the day of OSHA,
whenever the general or the alarm line would cover the Prophet alayhi salatu salam with his back as a volley of arrows would shower down shield him with his body.
If I will tell you about how he could say that whole day belong to tala like nobody had a greater privilege on the day of dental
poha would carry the Prophet sallallahu wasallam when he fell unconscious, put him on a rock and fight off the enemies and then grab them and move them a few steps further and turn around and fight the enemies. And when arrows would come, he would block with his arm with his arm until it became paralyzed, one of his arms will be allowed to add on.
And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam awoke bleeding and he tried to peek over to see what was happening this ambush. He would say to him lead to Sharif don't scout don't look your sudama now how do you do an anaesthetic my neck better than yours? You know, even when the robber went out when the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam that he had died, or Omar will hop out from his devastation from the shock factor. He threw his sword down and you literally sat down. And so is it enough that the Uncle veneziani Malik said to him, what are you doing? He said Mohammed died and he salatu salam salatu salam O Allah. He said so what you get up when you fight throat he lived for you
fight 40 die doing.
And so he dove into the ranks. And after offered only the sister of NSF, the nobody could recognize him by his fingers. They said, because he had 90 strikes on his body, a sword or a spear or an arrow that had totally mutilated him.
And the list goes on even women like meseta been to gab when she saw some people running or Lesiba as some pronounce it. Omar Amato, she was called, she said leave the weapons for those who will fight and she grabbed and she charged the opposite direction against the green. The prophet SAW Selim said I never looked left or right after he regained control, except that she was there until she was dashed across her collarbone, an injury that would lead her hemorrhage later bleed and give her Shahada.
And even after that battle on their way home, a woman from Blue DNR they went to her and they stopped her and they said, Listen, your family has died. Her husband, her brother, her son, they all died.
And her response was unbelievable. She said why not a little low is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. They said he is fine as you would like him to be. She said I have to see him have to see it with my own eyes. So they brought her to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and after she saw confirmed with her own eyes, she accepted nothing less than he was in fact alive. She said to him kulu mercy but in bad Dhaka, Jalan Yasuda, every calamity, every tragedy after knowing that your fine is variable jasola. This was one day
of the love of the Sahaba for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
But I also want to turn your attention to something equally important that all of the Sahaba live to see the day that Allah gave him victory in the dunya No, they didn't.
And so we must never overlook the fact that success here means what means being with him means supporting him mean living by his teachings means respecting him and honoring him more than you respect yourself. I was very pleased to see a brother this week remind other people about what's happening in France. He said to them, make sure you're not insulted for yourself more than you are insulted for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is not about people offending 1.5 billion Muslims. This is more so about the fact that they are insulting Allah beloved subhana wa Taala because he is heavier than the oma.
And so you live
By that, regardless of the outcomes on the ground, whether you live up to a historical period or not, that shows respect overall generally speaking to the profits of the level that is not success. What is success is that you stay by him
through thick and thin,
unapologetically unwaveringly, and selectively consistently by him.
That is success. Allah subhanho wa Taala said about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for Lavina, an OBE was, was one of sorrow, whatever our neurology on Zilla who like
those who believe in Him,
you believe everything he said.
That obviously would mean you need to learn what he said
and be serious about that
and respect him.
respect him his high rank is allowed to sit on one SRO and support him
support his guidance, support his name support everything about him as he sought to set up whatever our neurology unzila who and follow closely the light that was sent down with him or sent down to him
clean to the light he brought clean to the Quran, Allah Kahuna those are the ones that are successful. Allah subhana wa tada said aku Kalia
Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Milena Viva La ilaha illallah wa,
ala Muhammad and Aveda who want to be you who are solo
a lot of araca autolysis at a later time in the Prophet's life towards the end of his life during another difficult circumstance. Electron Surah hufa Kadena Sora hola whether or not you support him, Allah has already supported him.
And then he drew an example for them he says either Raja who Lavina cafaro when the disbelievers drove him out, meaning years ago in Mecca,
Sani efnet, many of whom are full of art when there was the two of them there in the cave him and Abu Bakar
when he was saying to his companion ebook, do not grieve do not sad and Allah is with us. So Allah sent his tranquility down upon them he said, You know upon them, and he support them Did you know The Lamb Tarawa which supports that you could not see nobody was there and they were still found support on that day.
What whether or not you support him, Allah has already written support for him.
You know, chifley seven, it's a me or him Allah.
In his famous book on on those who curse and insult the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He says, and
in the old world, if you will.
He says the commanders of some armies used to tell me that when they used to get into a deadlock with people, obviously aggressors, aggressors, we're talking about the military context here, nothing civilian about it. And then the enemy will try to provoke the Muslim army by cursing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says the commander's used to say, Quinn establish it will be said de Monte la eco looby navami minusma. We used to take a good sign out of him being cursed, a good omen out of him being cursed, despite the fact that our hearts are enraged from the words that we're hearing. Because it was a pattern that was so recognizable, that every time someone tries to
attack the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, good things start happening, unless supported becomes even more evident.
And likewise, look it nowadays in the media sense, every time they try to insult the Prophet is salatu salam, the love of the oma for him is renewed. Every time they try to cast doubts about him the proofs of his prophethood or re discuss every single time they try to demote from him. His name rises more and more, and he salatu salam.
But are we a part of this or not? This is an important issue. I don't want to talk about the world stage. And I don't want to talk about international when we become international players, then we can start making international demands, right? Strong countries, strong communities get respected. You know, we should all and I personally have called people to participate in the boycott for whatever it's worth. And if protests will build awareness.
That's a means of communicating our grievances as well. But sometimes, we need to realize that the attack of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or the disrespect
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can come from the inside.
When we do not have sufficient respect for our Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, we do not have sufficient love for him how to use salatu salam, and forgive me for the difficult conversation.
You know you have many colleagues
who know your favorite soccer teams or soccer players or favorite place for lunch. But there was never a crack to mention, pass out the book say something about the Prophet alayhi salatu. Salam, there was no there are Wait, if you wanted to squeeze it in, you would have squeezed in a polite way, in a long pressing way you would have been able to
what if we bring this conversation down to our children?
How much do they know about him?
I remember hearing the value when I first moved here. I had a session with high schoolers in one of these massages.
And I asked one of the girls
who is Abu Bakar.
And she said to me, the prophet
and I don't say that to shame anyone or anything. But this is a serious dilemma. I remember a scholar came from overseas once to an Islamic school in Brooklyn, New York. And he asked a sixth grade girl and he came back that night he said to us in Fotolia, he was giving a reminder for thought all week, I asked the girl What is the Prophet Muhammad's last name.
And she said some Allahu alayhi wa sallam, because that's what she's that's the extent of what she knows about him. This goes with that. Case closed.
And so teaching our children abiding by his son and getting rid of the word, the word just sooner. These are huge supports that we need to do for our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the prophet does not need it from us. Salli salatu salam, Allah has supported him whether we do or we don't.
educating ourselves, our family and by abiding by his example, honoring his tradition.
You know, many times even when we discuss Islamic law, like the teachings of Islam, the prophet teachings, one person may say, but it's just sitting there, right? And of course, we want to differentiate between what is mandatory would assume that just in case you're stuck, you're gonna have to perform, perform the bare minimum, not the complete package fine. Our Deen gives that flexibility on purpose, because the very practical religion, but to dismiss it as if it's not enough while you can to perform it, because it's just soon enough is a big problem. Or those who dedicate their lives to teach as soon as they are made fun of it. These guys are, they're out of touch. They
don't they don't talk about politics here or Palestine there. And certainly all of these things are important. But without teaching this, what else can be done really at this point? That's another important question. The people who criticize those who teach the center? Have they not disrespected the prophet SAW Salem, have they not criticized the spreading of his message? And they themselves went and had lunch with their family in a restaurant somewhere, they didn't do anything for Palestine either.
And so we need to look internally at where are all of these difficult conversations that need to be had not these transients, reactions, protests and boycotts are fine. But how do we reinstate that we also have a head to get a success, like their success, a love, like their love, a respect, like their respect, and they will people of influence as well. The last thing I will say here, you know, when I knew I fell on the level and became Muslim in Bukhari and Muslim was reading the Hadith this morning.
He said, he said,
so foolish, he is he was the chief of his people of America. He said, I will not do business with you any longer,
Until hammer permits, la salatu salam,
he understood to mobilize everything he had in the service of this cause. So you do that, on a lesser level, until we get to a point when those kinds of demands will be respected. strength will respect strength, but the pressure from the outside will always be there my brothers and sisters, we need to become internally strong so that the pressure from the outside stops facing us. May Allah make this another awakening and allow us an opportunity to serve His prophets Allah Allah Allah, Allah you earlier said them, and forgive us for our shortcomings by virtue of our love for him la salatu salam, and strengthen that love for him in our hearts and that love for him and our families
and our adherence to the Sunnah behind closed doors with our families with with our brothers in Islam. May Allah make us of those who tolerate each other the way the Prophet taught us before we expect the world to tolerate or respect us. May Allah make us of those who respect the Prophet most. So our demands for the prophet to be respected to be heard as they once were. Well Salama, hasta la vaca Nabina Muhammad Allah Allah your savage marine Allah
Meanwhile, you may not even see me on the map
