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.

00:01:04--> 00:01:24

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 forever. Amen. Laws dilligent guides them to lead us and remember our law leaves without guidance, none can offer them guidance. And we testify that no one is worthy of our worship and our devotion

00:01:25--> 00:01:42

except the law and the law 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 sallam was intrusions Prophet and his servant and His Messenger

00:01:45--> 00:01:55

oh you believe have the tough love of love and do not die except in a state of complete and total surrender to a lot of state of Islam.

00:01:56--> 00:02:08

To begin a lot so as it says in more than one place in the end who are leviosa Rasulullah who be who they were dealing happy leave him or who Allah Deen equally

00:02:10--> 00:02:16

well carry heavy machinery code. It is Allah He is the one who sent His messenger Mohammed Salah.

00:02:18--> 00:02:32

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 over all the religions

00:02:33--> 00:02:44

will carry heavy machinery cool and even if the pagans the idol worshippers, the polytheist those who said equals to Allah even if that means they may hate that it will make no difference.

00:02:46--> 00:02:55

Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reiterated this concept and said that this will continue to exist on one level or another

00:02:56--> 00:03:04

and that his oma is immortal. And those that believe in Him the global community will continue to exist until the end of time.

00:03:06--> 00:03:16

Let us infer to meet Almighty Allah help the VA herein lies the Roman colony. Voila. Mahadeva home had ATM robot.

00:03:17--> 00:03:50

This has been inside newseum. And it is there's so many citations of his head he mentioned on so many different occasions reported by so many of us will have he said there will never stop being a group of my own map of my nation upon the truth clearly apparently upon the truth, evidence upon this deed and the truth of this deed, they will not be harmed by anyone will be traced them or anyone who opposes and disagrees with them. Until the decree of a law the hour comes to pass.

00:03:51--> 00:03:59

However, this guarantee and this promise is not for every single member of his owner. It is for resume.

00:04:00--> 00:04:18

And so it has been confirmed authentic and hacker nabeshima with an authentic chain. They report from Abdulla Dom that also of the alojado woman and he said that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, lay tn now Island nasci semilunar

yeji temi aroona Why you swallow Luna Finn messaggi d y Murphy he movement.

00:04:31--> 00:04:35

He says our time will come over the people.

00:04:36--> 00:04:39

When members of this oma they're obviously most of them

00:04:40--> 00:04:53

will come into the massage in the houses of worship and even perform prayers in the massaging and there is not a single believer among them. And there is not a single believer among them.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

I pray to Allah and expects from Allah this does not

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

applied to those in the massage in today.

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

But this number one will not happen overnight.

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

It will happen gradually.

00:05:11--> 00:05:14

And number two those in the massage

00:05:16--> 00:05:23

are in the massage and because they are believers in sha Allah the Quran testifies to that, but that could possibly change.

00:05:25--> 00:06:08

A person can say I come to the message 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 Juma perhaps. But deep down inside do you actually believe in this Islam? Do you believe that Mohammed Salah lava I do send them 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? Do you actually believe it? Or is this something you subscribe to because of an incident just so happened that I was born into a family that professes this faith.

00:06:10--> 00:06:28

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. It doesn't get fumbled with a generation gap is absolutely necessary.

00:06:29--> 00:06:45

And that's why after praying to a large cell agenda, 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 was set up is a prophet of God.

00:06:46--> 00:07:03

This is actually a conversation to be had in the massage. Because believing that a man was spoken to from above the heavens is not necessarily it is not natural, you don't just grow up believing that any random person could have access to the heavens.

00:07:05--> 00:07:32

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 Mohammed 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 old beliefs. This is very common.

00:07:33--> 00:08:08

But do you know what is far more unbelievable, than a human being like you being communicated with from 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.

00:08:10--> 00:08:32

It is just It is also harder to believe that God created you and gave you everything you need. He gave you the eyes to see within the ears to hear within the oxygen you need. 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 need for guidance,

00:08:33--> 00:08:46

which comes through the prophet. And so believing in Allah is absolutely futile is absolutely natural. It's absolutely logical. And believing that God sent guidance with people is absolutely natural.

00:08:47--> 00:09:11

What we want to do is bridge the gap or including that, that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was one of them. He was one of those who received profit, because profit 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.

00:09:12--> 00:09:15

And so the very first reason we can see

00:09:17--> 00:09:23

why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in fact without doubt in truth, the prophet of God.

00:09:24--> 00:09:35

though perhaps there is no order. The first thing we will say is how suddenly he became a prophet. How overnight Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam becomes a prophet.

00:09:37--> 00:09:45

Even non Muslims, they noticed this, they realize there's something's wrong here. Like if you read the life story of the Prophet Mohammed, if

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

you find the 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

00:10:00--> 00:10:23

In his communities, he had excellent manners. Yes, he got married, yes. But it seemed as if his care was to treat people will 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 and as much as possible. We'll figure out peerspace later when we get to just continue filling every gap.

00:10:30--> 00:10:44

So his dedication, ality salt was Sam, 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 on a software setup.

00:10:45--> 00:11:31

And then after you pass 40 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, there's 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 to

00:11:31--> 00:11:34

accept this. The he came out of nowhere.

00:11:36--> 00:11:54

Interestingly, you know, if someone came to your house, my brother and sisters, 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.

00:11:56--> 00:12:14

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 got a mouse. So a fraudulent Carpenter couldn't build a house? How could the False Prophet build an entire religion?

00:12:16--> 00:12:41

How could he come up 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? Alonzo just calls our attention to that. And he says what am I quintets lumen cobley HeMan keytab him

00:12:42--> 00:12:44

to be I mean it even if

00:12:46--> 00:13:11

you never used to 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 and it becomes one of the grades we talk about. When we talk about some great general who is the best General of that Empire. He didn't start from zero. He was just the height of it.

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

Allah saying you never recited a book before this day, nor did your right hand ever inscribe anything, even though tablet mobile.

00:13:23--> 00:13:36

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.

00:13:39--> 00:13:52

A second reason is that the people who knew the books of the prophets before our prophets of Allah to set it up the experts now they confirm

00:13:54--> 00:14:43

like 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 software setup like I am and I was listening to the experts. He says LLM yeppoon level and the Allahu Allah. He is in 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 foreigner who can make that happen now, they recognize him with as much surety as one of you would as they would recognize their own children. Can you ever can

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

a parent ever confuse their child with anyone? They saw him for sure. checklist everything was there. You know, interestingly, what has remained of the Scriptures that have been changed and nowadays still point is

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

In many different directions, despite them being not 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.

00:15:14--> 00:15:16

You know, in the book of Genesis until today,

00:15:17--> 00:15:40

it says that God said to Ibraheem alehissalaam, I will make out of the son of the slave woman, the bondwoman, hydrolase salaam, I will make a great nation, I will make another mistake, I stood up, is there any nation on the earth, on the earth, that traces his lineage, its family back to his married audiences,

00:15:41--> 00:15:48

but the tribes of Arabia, they are the only people that exists that claim to come from there.

00:15:49--> 00:16:10

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 gap, right. And so what made them the great nation is when the Prophet Mohammed Ali Salatu was Salam pulled them all together, they became great in number and restored the religion of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam became great in their beliefs.

00:16:13--> 00:16:59

You know, in the book of another book in the Bible, the book of Isaiah, it says that I will bring out of them out of venomous Saeed, but from their brother, not directly from them out of their brothers, not his half is married the two 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 Marine, they wrote from their Israelite brothers, as if trying to cover up the proofs about Mohammed Salim is still happening, it's a work in progress every time they

00:16:59--> 00:17:01

read, you need to edit some more.

00:17:03--> 00:17:21

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, he said, a nonprofit also. And they said to him, are you Christ?

00:17:22--> 00:17:33

They want to know like, Are you the guy who's claiming to be the Messiah? He said, No, I'm not Christ. They said, and maybe you're Elijah elesa. He said, No, I'm not Elijah.

00:17:34--> 00:17:41

They said to him, Are you that Prophet? And they didn't mention his name. He said, No, I'm not that Prophet.

00:17:42--> 00:17:56

i'm john is 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 prophet.

00:17:57--> 00:18:02

They knew him like they knew their own children, even until the time of the prophet SAW the love of it.

00:18:03--> 00:18:07

So this in and of itself is another proof of all of our stuff a lot all the money

00:18:21--> 00:18:26

Alhamdulillah salatu salam, ala Viva, Chateau de

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

Mohammed Abu Dhabi, wherever you

00:18:33--> 00:18:43

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.

00:18:45--> 00:18:55

Before and after the message. He was known as a Sun Devil. I mean, wasn't he? The most truthful, the most trustworthy?

00:18:57--> 00:19:03

Can someone spend 40 years refusing to lie to the people

00:19:04--> 00:19:11

refusing to lie to animals and trick them? I think it's the auto setup, refusing any semblance of this honesty.

00:19:12--> 00:19:23

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.

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

And

00:19:26--> 00:20:00

another thing to add to this is God LaWanda says that when the province on Send them faced those years, 13 years of persecution in Mecca, and he finally migrates to Medina. She says he keeps it in bed, they thought it is better, 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 on them. That was the safety deposit box. The trustworthiness of the Prophet Elisa to set up this integrity

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

Can you imagine fighting someone tooth and nail wanting them dead, opposing them with all your life.

00:20:07--> 00:20:15

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.

00:20:16--> 00:20:27

We could not do that with our family members, you can take your precautions before you upset your family members, you protect your side and your interest before the risk happens.

00:20:29--> 00:20:36

And then add to it something else. If a person is acting like they're honest, they cannot put on a show forever.

00:20:38--> 00:20:41

You know, as they say, you can trick some people all the time.

00:20:42--> 00:20:55

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.

00:20:58--> 00:21:04

That's why they say you trick me twice, once Shame on you trick me twice, shame on me. It's not the folks in me but it happens over and over again.

00:21:05--> 00:21:12

And you might be able to be a real deceptive cunning tricks there and trick everybody for a short while.

00:21:13--> 00:21:25

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 her.

00:21:27--> 00:21:38

And he doesn't say okay, the time has come I am I'm a profit now. He comes home to free it happened overnight. That's of the proofs of his profit and his reaction to the release.

00:21:40--> 00:22:08

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 can say about us when they see us behind closed doors. What are they just about to see? She said Allah will never humiliate you don't be afraid. You speak the truth and you take care of the week and you defend your press, then you honor your guests and all of this is that the personality of a lawyer? That's with regards to his honesty.

00:22:10--> 00:22:15

Add to his honesty, still part of this third proof his character add to it is bravery.

00:22:17--> 00:22:25

A lawyer is a coward. A lawyer is a coward. Why does he lie to cover up to protect himself from what he's afraid of?

00:22:26--> 00:22:51

The fact that the Prophet is asked to set up someone like the brave warrior IE Mohan says that when the battle would get the fierceness 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 said to Nancy boxer, and he was the toughest person in battle. He said,

00:22:53--> 00:22:54

you know, in the Battle of,

00:22:55--> 00:22:57

of name, and Barack

00:22:59--> 00:23:38

Obama narrates that he was asked, or the narrative they asked about, ah, did you run when everybody else Ran? Because they were taken off guard. They were walking through going and 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 salam, if he dies, the mission dies. He did not run he said.

00:23:39--> 00:24:06

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 can do and if you have demoted him, 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.

00:24:08--> 00:24:14

When they first came to Medina, they were under constant anxiety that they would be ambushed at night, they would be feared at night.

00:24:16--> 00:24:20

To the point that they heard a loud crash at night and everybody comes running out.

00:24:21--> 00:24:38

And they said we found the Prophet alayhi salatu salam coming back on the horse of his rage, with a sword hanging around his neck telling people that you are allowed to write false alarm, relax everybody, himself going out to check in the depths of the night when they hear this commotion.

00:24:40--> 00:24:43

And then when you analyze his character a little further is what

00:24:44--> 00:24:57

you find is how hopeful he is how optimistic he is. Like we said previously, or Musashi, Salomon, everybody loses faith at the ocean at the sea. He didn't lose faith la salatu salam Diddy

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

Allah as always

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

Jen says in the poor, and there are very similar incidents happened to our profits on

00:25:07--> 00:25:17

Saturday, as many of whom I feel God, if you are pulling up that toxin in America, I was telling the people in the room

00:25:18--> 00:25:34

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 cave, when they were on the run.

00:25:36--> 00:26:14

When he turns to his companion province, often in search of a worker, and he says to him, Do not be sad. Allah is with us, nothing's gonna happen. When did the Prophet alayhi salatu salam say this when the mercenaries had tracked them down to the most unexpected hiding place, and get to the door of the cave, and our book was so different? The other one says, 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 knowing about them, even though Oh, no. He said to them, I suppose that is not going to happen.

00:26:15--> 00:26:39

But you know, at that point, when you take all your precautions, and you find a way out of Mecca, and you don't even go towards you, Athena, 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 what anybody would unravel. But this is the certainty of a prophet, not just was the Prophet, he was certain that he was a prophet alayhi salatu salam.

00:26:40--> 00:26:43

And, you know, if our Prophet alayhi salatu, Salam

00:26:45--> 00:27:16

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 would stand 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 was so they've heard these verses, and recited these verses, and continued to admire after his death, Alex auto celeb, the man who recited these verses, if he had made up this story after the fact that we would never have trusted it would never have admired him.

00:27:17--> 00:27:32

This is how he behaved consistently. And lastly about his character with it, we closed the book, and we'll defer the rest till later. His message and his accomplishments la salatu salam and his miracle that is prophecies in the actual plan itself.

00:27:34--> 00:27:43

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?

00:27:44--> 00:28:23

If our profit is also set up, 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 is about to set up all of the jazz under his rule. He could have gotten anything he wanted, and done anything he pleased.
