What's up Hola. Hola. De Tessa I don't want to be the one on hand in number. How can i lay Cooperativa? Yeah, you're Latina man on top of La Hello poodle, Foland sadita to swell kumara Malecon? Well, the feedback from the Rubicam woman you too Erica, how are Rasulullah who prefer the first films and our Lima. All Praise and Glory be to Allah, we thank him. And we thank him always and we praise Him as best as we can.
And we seek His guidance and his forgiveness and we ask of him protection from the evil whispers within us and the evil consequences of our misdeeds. For whomever Allah azza wa jal guides, none can lead astray. And remember Allah leaves without guidance, none can offer them guidance. And we testify that no one is worthy of our worship and our devotion.
Except Allah and Allah alone, the creator and master of the heavens and the earth and everything in them, and everything between them and everything we know and everything we know not. And we bear witness the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam was in truth, his prophet, and his servant and His messenger.
Oh you believe have the tough of Allah and do not die except in a state of complete and total surrender to Allah a state of Islam.
To begin, Allah azza wa jal says in more than one place in the Quran who Alevi out of Salah rasool Allah who be who they were dealing happy Leo Hara, who Alateen equally
well Carrie how emotionally cool, it is Allah He is the one who sent His messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the guidance the purest guidance and the religion of Truth, Leo Hirafu to make it evident to make it apparent to make it highest. Overall the idea and overall the religions
while carry heavy wishing Ico and even if the pagans the idol worshippers, the polytheist those who said equals to Allah even if that may they may hate that it will make no difference
are prophets of Allah Allah Hilario Salam reiterated this concept and said that this will continue to exist on one level or another
and that his ummah is immortal, and those that believe in Him, the global community will continue to exist until the end of time.
That has no effect to meet Almighty Allah Captiva herein lies the Roman Catholicism, wala Mahadeva home had yet to Amarula he will whom Catholic this Helene's like Muslim? And it is there are so many citations of his heavy mentioned on so many different occasions reported by so many of the Sahaba he said there will never stop be a group of my ummah of my nation upon the truth clearly apparently upon the truth, evident upon this deed and the truth of this deed. They will not be harmed by anyone who betrays them, or anyone who opposes or disagrees with them. Until the decree of Allah the hour comes to pass.
However, this guarantee and this promise is not for every single member of resume, it is for resume.
And so it has been confirmed authentic and hacky rip Debbie shaver with an authentic chain. They report from Abdulla downriver that also the Allahu Anhu woman that he said that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Laya Tiana Allah nurses Mr loon
eg Tammy Runa why you saw Luna Phil massage Ed y Murphy he moved me.
So it was that
he says A time will come over the people.
When members of this ummah they're obviously mostly
will come into the massage in the houses of worship, and even perform prayers in the massage and there is not a single believer among them. And there is not a single believer among them.
I pray to Allah and expect from Allah this does not
apply to those in the massage today.
But this number one will not happen overnight.
It will happen gradually.
And number two those in the massages
are in the massage because they are believers in sha Allah in the Quran testifies to that, but that could possibly change.
A person could say I come to the masjid because this is what we do. This is what my parents did. I am a Muslim, I come to the masjid. This is my house of worship. My parents taught me this. We have to go for it. We have to go for Jumar perhaps, but deep down inside, do you actually believe in this Islam? Do you believe that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a prophet? Why do you believe these become difficult questions for them to answer? Are you a movement? Do you actually believe in this? Now? Do you profess faith you actually believe it? Or is this something you subscribe to because of an incident? It just so happened that I was born into a family that professes this week.
And so preserving what you have becomes a necessity for every single one of you. And ensuring that the baton gets passed to the next generation safely doesn't get fumbled with a generation gap is absolutely necessary.
And that's why after praying to Allah azza wa jal, I made the right decision. I wish to share with you a discussion for a football or maybe two or maybe three. Why is it exactly do we believe that the Prophet Muhammad Ali Salatu Salam is the prophet of God.
This is actually a conversation to be heard in the massage. Because believing that a man was spoken to from above the heavens is not fitrah. Necessarily, it is not natural, you don't just grow up believing that any random person could have access to the heavens.
Although we should point out before we even start the discussion, that it is absolutely not central either to believe there's no God at all. Because some people when they go down this route, they say, there's no proof in Muhammad Ali salatu salam being a prophet or so they think or so they may assume or so they may except if they hear it enough times, and so they disregard His religion and all the religion and all faith and all belief. This is very common.
But do you know what is far more unbelievable, than a human being like you being communicated with him above the heavens? It is far harder to believe that out of nowhere, everything comes into existence. And out of this order out of just randomness out of chaos, all of the order we see in the universe, and inside of us and the perfect construction of the world. And the impeccable design of the human being that that all came out of nowhere that is harder to believe, than the fact that a human being was spoken to by God.
It is just it is also harder to believe that God created you and gave you everything you need. He gives you the eyes to see within the ears to hear within the oxygen he needs. He nourished you in every every way and provided you with all your needs. And then he keeps back he withholds your greatest need your needs for guidance,
which comes through the prophets. And so believing in Allah is absolutely fitrah is absolutely natural. It's absolutely logical. And believing that God sent guidance with people is absolutely natural.
What we want to do is bridge the gap are included in that, that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was one of them. He was one of those who received prophethood because prophethood must have come but how do we know it came to him? This is where the conversation needs to be had because this is not something that's going to come out of thin air. I have to have very good reasons to believe this.
And so the very first reason we can see
why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in fact without doubt in truth, the prophet of God,
though perhaps there is no order. The first thing we will say is how suddenly he became a prophets. How overnight Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam becomes a prophet.
Even non Muslims, they noticed this, they realized that something's wrong here. Like if you read the life story of the Prophet Muhammad Ali salatu salam, you find a man that spends the first 40 years of his life in a completely unexceptional way. Beautiful values, but he was a merchant, a trader. Before that he was a shepherd just like everyone
In this community,
he had excellent manners. Yes, he got married, yes. But it seemed as if his care was to treat people well be a man of honesty be a man of integrity. Brothers, as you know, school is out. So we need to move up as fast as possible as much as possible. We'll figure out peerspace Laser when we get to the shoulder, just continue filling every gap
so his dedication, Ali salatu salam for 40 years is just to live the honest life. His fame, the fame, if we're gonna say he looks for fame was nothing more than live in opinion of his neighbors, I saw two cylinders. And then after you pass for the years, and the heat and energy and ambition of the young age, is about to die down. And all the world can really offer you at this point to some peace. You go out and you subject your reputation to and then you start speaking about a mission from the heavens, and everyone begins to call you a liar. And everyone begins to attack you all for what to chase something you can't even enjoy, like worldly fame or some sort of it doesn't make
sense. You know, even Thomas Carlyle, who's a famous European historian, he has a book called Heroes and hero worship people that different civilizations considered heroes. He said, It makes absolutely no sense of acceptance, that he came out of nowhere.
Interestingly, you know, if someone came to your house, and rather than sistex, just give this some thought, and said to you, I'll do this job for you. I'm a carpenter. I'm really good with wood and nails and saws and screws. I'll build this room for you. I'll build this second entertainment center for you. I'll build this furniture for you.
And he has zero experience in carpentry. How easy would it be for you to figure out this guy's a fraud? Right away within moments we get to my house.
So a fraudulent carpenter couldn't build a house? How could the false prophets build an entire religion?
How could he come with a book that until today challenges the world when he himself was not known for his entire life to read or write and even if he could be experts that we're known for all this time? attested there's nothing like this book. It's a masterpiece out of thin air. Where does that come from? Allah azza wa jal calls our attention to that. And he says, Why am I quintets looming cobbling him in Kitab him while at the hotel will be I mean it even Lauterbur moving to doing you never use the recite any book before this, like you weren't studious. You know, when Aristotle becomes a great philosopher, after a lifetime from Plato, he builds on the guy before him, and he
becomes one of the greats we talk about. When we talk about some great general who is the best general of that empire. He then starts from zero. He was just the height of it. Allah saying you never recited a book before this day, nor did your right hand ever inscribe anything, even long term and morbidly nude. Had that been the case? These falsify years those who called you false, would have had a reason to doubt. But there is absolutely no room for doubt whatsoever. This couldn't have been you.
A second reason is that the people who knew the books of the prophets before our prophets of Allah Allah, he'll set it up the experts now they confirm
but you don't need to be an expert to deny if he was false, right? Fake carpenter got it. The experts themselves didn't deny either. They said no, this guy he's the real deal on a salon was set up. Like I believe in the salon and Allah Azza legit sides has listened to the experts. He says LLM yet cool.
And the alemayehu roadmap is strong enough. Isn't it enough of a sign that the specialists, the scholars of the Israelites, the children of Israel, the Jews and the Christians, they recognize him isn't enough that they know him. And they knew him not speculation. Allah says yeah, the fool now who came out if wouldn't have been now, they recognize him with as much surety as one of you would as they would recognize their own children. Can you ever can a parent ever confuse their child with anyone? They saw Him and for sure, checklist everything was there. You know, interestingly, what has remained of the scriptures that have been changed and nowadays still point it
in many different directions, despite them being ultra reliable, there's so much inside of the scriptures today, the Bible today that tells you know, there's something here. We can't just turn a blind eye to it.
You know, in the book of Genesis until today,
it says that God said to Ibrahim alayhi salam, I will make out of the son of the slave woman, the bondwoman hydrolase Salam, I will make a great nation. I will make no mistake I stood up Is there any nation on the earth on the earth, that traces his lineage, its family back to his married it Salam, but the tribes of Arabia, they are the only people that exist that claim to come from there.
And then they only became great, the Bible is not going to call a great nation. Someone who doesn't worship God who worships idols of the Kappa, right. And so what made them the great nation is when the Prophet Muhammad Ali salatu salam pulled them all together, they became great in number and restored the religion of Ibrahim alayhi salam became great in their beliefs.
You know, in the book of another book in the Bible, and the book of Isaiah, it says that I will bring out of them out of veterans, Saeed, but from their brother, not directly from them out of their brothers, that is half is married to sons of Abraham, I will bring out of their brothers, a great nation. And they will bring justice to the nations. You know, 50 years ago or less, they tried to edit the Bible. But most groups rejected this new edit. And they instead of saying we will bring out from their brothers from his memory, they wrote from their Israelite brothers, as if trying to cover up the proofs about Muhammad SAW Selim is still happening. It's a work in progress. Every time
they read, you need to edit some more.
And finally, also of the previous scriptures, you know, in the book of John until today, when they were investigating, and finally they went to kill Jesus Christ, peace be upon him and Allah saved him. It is recorded in these books that they went to John Yeah, Lady Salah and our Prophet also. And they said to him, are you Christ?
They want to know like, Are you the guy who was claiming to be the Messiah? He said, No, I'm not Christ.
They said, maybe you're Elijah. And yes, sir. He said, No, I'm not Elijah.
They said to him, are you that prophet? And he didn't mention his name? He said, No, I'm not that prophet.
I'm John. He's someone else. Who is that Prophet? Who is not Christ, who is not Elijah, who is not John, and who's apparently so famous. They didn't even have to say his name as if everybody was already waiting for him. That's prophets.
They knew him like they knew their own children, even until the time of the prophets of Allah Allah He was.
So this in and of itself is another proof of all of all we had our stuff from Allah how the money was.
hamdulillah Hua salatu salam ala Ravi
Allah, Muhammad and Abu Dhabi wherever you want us to.
Have the greatest proves that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was as he claimed a prophet of God was his life story in terms of his character.
Before and after the message, he was known as Assad that for me, wasn't the most truthful, the most trustworthy.
Can someone really spend 40 years refusing to lie to the people
refusing to lie to animals and trick them I like this a lot to a seller refusing any semblance of this honesty.
And then after that, all of a sudden, not not just lie, not just lie about something enormous like who your parents are to lie about God himself. It doesn't match.
another thing to add to this is show the Allahu Allah says that when the province on send them Phaistos years 13 years of persecution in Mecca and he finally migrates to Medina. She says he keeps I leave every thought and brought the aloha spirit to return to people their things, because there was not a single person in Mecca, except that if he had valuables he would keep them with the province Asana that was the safety deposit box. The trustworthiness of the Prophet alayhi salatu was set up is intact.
He can you imagine fighting someone tooth and nail wanting them dead, opposing them with all your mind.
And believing that despite the doing all that to him, he still won't be training that you keep your belongings with him while you're fighting him.
We could not do that with our family members. You take your precautions before you upset your family members, you protect your side and your interests before the RIF happens.
And then add to it something else. If a person is acting like they're honest, they cannot put on a show forever.
You know, as they say, you can trick some people all the time.
And you can trick everybody some of the time. But you can never trick all of the people all the time. It's impossible. Some people are naive, they're not very sharp. You can trick them over and over and over and over and over again.
That's why they say you trick me twice once shame on you trick me twice. Shame on me. It's not the fault isn't me, it happens over and over again.
And you might be able to be real, deceptive, cunning trickster and trick everybody for a short while.
But for the whole world that knows you inside and out, past present future, within your home in public, and then all agreeing on your personality. When he comes home to Felicia with the Allahu anha.
And he doesn't say okay, the time has come. I am. I'm a prophet to now. He comes home, he's a free it happened overnight. That's of the proofs of His Prophet and his reaction to Gibreel Alayhis Salam.
It was nothing pre planned about it. But the point being is honestly, Khadija herself said, if you want to know somebody we wish our spouses could say about us when they see us behind closed doors. What are they just about to say? She said Allah will never humiliate you don't be afraid. You speak the truth and you take care of the weak and you defend the oppressed, and you honor your guests and all of this. Is that the personality of a lawyer? That's what the regards to his honesty I need someone to add to his honesty. Oh, it's still part of this third proof his character. Add to it is bravery.
Allah is a coward. A lawyer is a coward. Why does he lie to cover up to protect himself from what he's afraid of?
The fact that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, someone like Ali, the brave warrior ally on the Allah Juan says that when the battle would get the fiercest, we would come near the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam if we were the bravest of men, and he was the closest of us to the enemy. What can I do? What can I say to Nancy Baxter? And he was the toughest person in battle. He said,
you know, in the Battle of,
of who name and Bara Edna is about the Aloha narrates that he was asked, or the narrative they asked him Barra Did you run when everybody else ran? Because in her name, they were taken off guard. They will walk you through going marching through the valley, and they were taken off guard from off top. So it was mayhem. Everyone tried to take cover in separate directions. He said to him, did you run at her name? He said, What I can tell you is that the Prophet SAW Selim did not run. That was the clearest thing about that day. That that's what would blow your mind. The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. If he dies, the mission dies. He did not run he said.
He said rather he made himself very visible so that people could regroup around and you need a center point to get the army together again quickly or else it's too late. He said he'd been made himself very visible. And he said, and then maybe you let Kenzie and Abner have the mortality. I am the Prophet. There is no lie about this. I am the son of Abdulmutallab. I really haven't. I haven't died regroup. Is that the personality of a liar.
When they first came to Medina, they were under constant anxiety that they would be ambushed at night, they will be feared at night.
To the point that they heard a loud crash at night and everybody comes running out.
And they said we found the Prophet alayhi salatu salam coming back on the horse of sob with a sword hanging around his neck telling people that Toronto letter out all right false alarm, relax everybody himself going out to check in the depths of the night when they hear this commotion.
And then when you analyze his character a little further, I just want to Salem, you find his how hopeful he is how optimistic he is. Like we said previously, what Musa alayhis salam on everybody loses faith at the ocean at the sea. He didn't lose faith la salatu salam Diddy,
Jen says in the Quran, that a very similar incident happened to our prophets of Allah Allah He will say to them
Sandy is Nene whom I feel God if you are pulling this rip that toxin in Allah Hassan.
Allah is selling the people in left on the roof of otherness, Allah Allah, whether or not to support Mohammed is at the end of his life, whether or not to stand by him, it will not make a difference. Allah has already written victory for him. And then he recalls for them to remember when there was only two of them in the case, when they were on the run.
When he turns to his companion problems often turn into a bucket. And he says to him, Do not be sad. Allah has with us, nothing's gonna happen. When did the Prophet alayhi salatu salam ceases when the mercenaries had tracked them down to the most unexpected hiding place and get to the door of the cave, and I will book with Satya Nadella who answers Oh prophet of God, if they just look under their feet, because the opening of the cave was very small and low. If they look under their feet, they will see us now Navarro tactile Khademi him, Oh, now, he said to them, Alexandre Salam is not going to happen.
But you know, at that point, when you take all your precautions and you find a way out of my PA, you don't even go towards Medina, you go the opposite direction where no one's going to look. And you think this is the only thing that will work, if anything will work. And even that doesn't work. This is when a person loses hope. Like this is when anybody would unravel. But this is the certainty of a prophet. Not just was he a prophet, he was certain that he was a prophet, Allah His father was set up.
And you know, if our Prophet alayhi salatu salam
had made up these verses, you can say that he taught these verses later after the fact. You know, someone says, a long time ago, there was a fight and I took them all on and no one who stands in my way, and we can make up these stories after the fact. The problem is for someone who may suspect that is that our book has to be heard these verses, and recited these verses, and continue to admire after his death valley, he sought to Scilab the man who recited these verses, if he had made up his story after the fact of the book, the Soviet would never have trusted would never have admired him.
This is how he behaved consistently. And lastly about his character and within the clothes, the hutzpah and will defer the rest to later is message and its accomplishments are laid salatu salam and his miracles and His prophecies in the past the actual Quran itself.
What's the motive? You know, when you want to pinpoint who did something wrong? Investigators say What's the motive? Like what did he get out of it? What Why would he do something like that?
If our Prophet alayhi salatu salam, you look at his lifestyle, if he did it for the riches if he did it for the, what did he get? At the height of his power when he is the undisputed ruler of Arabia Alehissalaam to set up all of the jazz under his rule, he could have gotten anything he wanted and done anything he pleased. And his wish was a command to people. He still lived the same minimalist, simple lifestyle on the ground, strong math marking in his side, the pond the shield so that he can buy wheat or oats from a local Jewish trader. What did he get out? What's the motive?
Except that this was not his mission? But the mission that Allah azza wa jal sent.
And we asked Allah to restore and strengthen the conviction of those who desire guidance and conviction Allah whom I mean, may Allah Azza Linde increases in faith upon our faith and strength upon our strength. us and our families every sincere seeker Allahumma Amin.
