00:00:03--> 00:00:04

In a hungry guy

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

he was

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

made

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

in a washing

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

machine he was

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

Yeah, you

00:00:29--> 00:00:30

know, yeah, you can ask

00:00:36--> 00:00:36

me who am I?

00:00:37--> 00:00:41

Kathy are on manisa What's up a lot of money

00:00:44--> 00:00:47

in a lot I cannot equal a fever. Yeah you

00:00:50--> 00:00:52

can either use

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

or may use it are in our suit.

00:00:59--> 00:01:05

All Praise be to Allah, we thank him and we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure and his forgiveness.

00:01:06--> 00:01:34

And we turn to Allah for protection from the evil whispers within us and from the consequences of our evil deeds. For overall love guides learn to lead a street and remember a lot leaves the street and can guide. And we testify that none is worthy of our worship and our devotion, and our obedience of love. But the law, the law alone without any partners, the true supreme King, and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was undoubtedly His Prophet, and his service and His Messenger.

00:01:36--> 00:01:55

O you have embraced faith, or you have believed the law says have the double off a lot in your life at all times, to the extent that you can muster as best as you possibly can, and do not die Do not leave this life executive state of complete and total surrender to a law state of Islam.

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

To begin after welcoming my brothers and sisters once again.

00:02:01--> 00:02:04

So I was favor over us of being in his house.

00:02:06--> 00:02:15

We began two weeks ago our discussion, our visiting or revisiting why we believe in Him on His auto setup.

00:02:17--> 00:02:20

And we said that why we believe in Him,

00:02:21--> 00:02:31

does not necessarily mean that we are adapting our belief in him whatsoever, to a setup. But it's more about recognizing

00:02:32--> 00:02:58

that the belief in Him is not something that is inherently born inherited. in sight of you naturally present the same way believing in Gods For example, to believe a particular human being was the prophet of God, you may have inherited that by who you associate with your family members, your relatives, your circle that you grew up with. But that type of

00:02:59--> 00:03:03

inheritance is very easily taken away from a person

00:03:04--> 00:03:20

as opposed to someone seeing it for themselves being convinced of it personally, this statement seeing and believing has a degree of truth to us as Muslims. In fact, it's been reported that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said,

00:03:22--> 00:03:26

ladies at work and while the one being told is not like the one see.

00:03:29--> 00:03:36

And the one being told about the fact is also not like someone who sees the fact himself.

00:03:39--> 00:04:20

And also we are talking about this subject because we believe that although we believe in the prophets of Allah, while they do sell them, we have to continually climb upwards in our beliefs. Because there are so many factors around us that will continually work downwards against our belief, that belief could be eroded could be eaten away, like rust eats away at metal, that can't happen. And because a person even though they have enough, don't mean to be Muslim, meaning to act on what they believe that's what you need to be missing. That's it. If you're acting on it, that means you believe in it. But that does not mean that the outward climb, and being totally stilled in where you

00:04:20--> 00:04:34

are inside of your faith has been reached yet. You have been itself has levels being positive, even being positive as levels. And that's why I brought him on he sought to sit down. He said that I'll be editing the case.

00:04:36--> 00:05:00

He was not waiting to become Muslim. He was a Muslim that was devoted, dedicated practicing. And then he asked a lot of humility without demanding No one is allowed to demand anything of Allah. But he was asking Oh a lot Can you take me to another level? Can you show me how you get right through the day. All the LLM took me and he said Don't you believe you have enough

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

Fake, the proof is in your life to begin with, though he says, But of course, I believe one that can only apply enough I will do what I want. I'm looking for the stillness of my heart, to stop to be untouchable to be unfeasible just to be beyond curiosity anymore.

00:05:20--> 00:05:39

And so a lot of children, you can see is believing. And so we want to see the facts that we've inherited, for the most part for most of us about the Prophet Alex photos and why we believe in him. So they are not eroded so that they are not weak, so they are not subject to attack.

00:05:40--> 00:05:44

And we sent out the first proofs of his profits, which

00:05:45--> 00:05:47

was how suddenly overnight overnight,

00:05:49--> 00:06:05

he did not perfect an art of those before him that he had access to. It all came out of nowhere. And that's why some of the simplest facts of problems often brought to the world that were common knowledge to a different time in a different place, like the stories have been.

00:06:07--> 00:06:10

They said, no one would know this little profit. How did you know the story of

00:06:12--> 00:06:52

when goodgym and probably 11, then a lot of us had I not told you this, you would know what he would have known of living in Arabia isolated by desert. And that's why those that hear from him say How did he know that story? That story is only in another part of the world in Jerusalem only 600 years ago, I didn't get read, covered uncovered. So the suddenness on so many levels through this profit center, and we discussed and we discussed a little bit about how this character how the previous scriptures are told clearly that something was going to happen in this part of the world, from the children of his Mary, our great nation, the gap have been built exams are being done all of this not

00:06:52--> 00:07:33

for a small event. Everything was leading, including the scriptures, something big was about to happen in Mecca, and everyone knew it. And they recognize they recognize their own children. That was the second proof that they're in proof is the actual character of the Prophet alayhi salatu was set up his reputation of honesty, his valor, and his bravery was not that of a liar or a coward or anything of that sort. him having no motives, having his public and private life, so simple. so down to earth, even at the height of his power. He's optimism, he's not really losing hope, even if the key all of that leads to one thing, and he was certain about faith.

00:07:35--> 00:07:49

And thus, he was able to convey it relate to so many others put it in so many people. They saw it from his character, that this was not something that he was acting or pretending or even something he believed what wasn't really sure about.

00:07:50--> 00:08:09

He was so consistent than that. This third group we want to discuss today. And I only rehearsed for a little bit 234 minutes to speak two weeks is a look at his message I thought was his message, analyzing his message proves his prophethood

00:08:11--> 00:08:36

you know, any human being can be tried to be really creative and think of philosophy like life is trying to live His suffering, it's all a test, try your best, be nice, and put together some general values. When you think about how the Prophet alayhi salatu salam presents proposes to the world a message that is so Shannon, right, so comprehensive covering everything.

00:08:38--> 00:08:51

And we will give some examples in a minute. And then at the same time, all those wide parts are done so right like they're synchronized, they harmonize in a way they fit perfectly together.

00:08:52--> 00:09:09

And then there's so much detail, you know, how they see it in English, the devil lies in the details. Like, yeah, sure, it looks nice on face value, but you did just an injury to down. Oh, there's something clearly wrong here. It's filled with contradictions. Alonzo just says

00:09:11--> 00:09:15

that the fact that there are none is proof that it's from Allah.

00:09:16--> 00:09:17

F and I

00:09:25--> 00:09:59

don't think reflect over the message of the Quran. If it was from anyone but Allah, you would have found so many inconsistency, so many contradictions, so much conflict in it. How do you have a book that 6200 plus verses long, and they all reinforce each other and parts of it resemble one another, and you're doing it over the span of 23 years? This is also an issue. Some people don't realize the power of the wisdom of the brand's message being revealed over 23 years.

00:10:01--> 00:10:49

A lot of Silla Genesis, and the disbelievers say that when Xena hasn't put up Joomla they say Why did you come down all at once of the wisdoms why it came down all at once. Can you imagine a person who tries to write a message or thesis research in his bachelor's undergraduate level. And then when he comes back and writes another one and his master's level, and then writes, Louise is writing the second PhD like 20 years later, 25 years later, when you compare all of that would see this same person. This is the same message, this is the same author, this is the same writer impossible. The Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam, he had a message, he would recite something out to people, those

00:10:49--> 00:10:57

people will hear that or add and go back to their country and never come back to them for as long as they live. They find out later on that he died.

00:10:59--> 00:11:39

So he couldn't retract and refine and editing spoken word is so much harder than written word and deleted edits. So that's a part of his message. And then look, look, look at the content of his message. He is the only person that ever came to the world with such a pure message of delete a message as logical, a message that is clear, a message that is firm, unwavering one God, no partners, Creator of the heavens and the earth, everything comes from him, and everything returns to him. He doesn't need any one or anything for any moment. And every one of everything needs him at every moment. crystal clear.

00:11:40--> 00:12:00

What has he said be the other Oh, you know, love say this is my path. He's declared it from I call to a law. And then even when events would come to life, as we mentioned, or may have mentioned before, our Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he lost his son Ibrahim, as a two year old when he died in front of the audience.

00:12:02--> 00:12:11

It just so happened that the whole Zoo or the coup took place in Eclipse a solar eclipse took place on the day Marlene died.

00:12:14--> 00:13:00

And you think you know, this is a very convenient coincidence, that if you want to promote yourself, not God, your message really wasn't God. This is like perfect timing. This is like a strike of luck or fortune, as they say. All those heavens are upset because of where he died. He didn't even have to say it was so obvious that his understanding was people started saying to the degree that your profit is level seven has to be given on the new book, though he's going through the difficulties of losing a child, though he's not the one who said it himself, and clarifies it. Why are people see X, Y and Z? He says in the shadow of it. And even if it left him you hope before he

00:13:01--> 00:13:04

left laughs He finally you know what?

00:13:08--> 00:13:10

He said, the sun and the moon are two of the signs of God

00:13:14--> 00:13:29

that have an effect on them to have the signs of God, that he strikes fear. It's a display of his power, strikes fear and his slaves using them. They do not Eclipse for the death or the life of anyone. So when you see them getting up and break,

00:13:30--> 00:13:34

get up and show your brokenness to God, show your submission to God.

00:13:36--> 00:14:21

All we had to do is be silent. But his message was that clear. And then he comes with, with a belief on further on faith and this theory that everything is in our hands. And aside from the benefit of that the psychological benefit of that the clarity of everything is in God's hands. And then he chose to give you a bit of the choice but it's still his because he can cancel whenever he wants. And so within that choice, that small bit of free will, he will hold you accountable. And then he teaches the Muslims five daily prayers. And the genius in this is beyond the ultimate. You know the same way you cannot some people look at five prayers a bit too much. And at times. He's a bit

00:14:21--> 00:14:46

strict. But he knew from Allah. A wad told him make sure they take prayer times very seriously. Because the same way you cannot all bundle up your meals, your lunch and your dinner at the end of the week, you'll die before it happens. You cannot bundle up your interview date, you will fall apart before it happens. He knew exactly what the human being needed. And then he gave you a month in the year

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

to regulate yourself. Remind yourself behind those laws always watching even if the people aren't and to practice a little bit of self restraint. And then this message goes one step further. It talks about and talks about hedge

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

A reminder of the hereafter when people come from every direction, all the same, to stand in front of the same God, who kinda will die. And then from the genius of his message, by the way, he said he left the room for the human mind.

00:15:13--> 00:15:45

You know, it's not just what he taught it so close to them that it's such a proof of his prophethood. It's the things he refuse to talk about. Because how many religions how many philosophers no one can we could not 50 years ago, imagine what's happening now correct? hat, if you will try to send a tight tight rule for 1500 years from now he will totally fail, because you have no idea what 1600 years ago is gonna look like years from now look like his message even had that flexibility to last and to survive, and that's why survive.

00:15:47--> 00:16:24

And then this will come down to human hygiene and clipping your nails and went to be and practicing medicine and that medicine is not magic, which most or so much of the world believe that medicine was just horrible superstition commits. And he said no. And that's why the very first medical exams were done in Baba dead by the Muslims. Because hundreds of years before that our province often didn't ever practice medicine without being skilled, whoever practices, whatever you did before, hold on, he's liable. Meaning you can't doing it. He knew that medicine was a system that is to be mastered. And he

00:16:25--> 00:16:29

said, Man, so follow me that and he lines up

00:16:31--> 00:17:12

with Jay Leno, I love to not sit down to disease, except that he says for the Cure, there's a cure for everything. They'll walk away from patients keep trying. He said whether you know it or you don't, but he did send it. And that's why the medical Renaissance began, you know, in the Crusaders came back in the 11th century, for 100 years after the province on the right in their books. And the records I can give you that they brought home 400 years later, beautiful custom to Northern Europe. And that was the Turkish back 30. Celtic Turks, they were the Muslims in charge, they brought back the back, they will not be they will not wash it, they will put them on clothes and keep them until

00:17:12--> 00:17:19

they ripped off. That's why they love that the plague would take care of time and time again. This was also learned from the Muslims.

00:17:20--> 00:17:30

All of this message, you know, by the way, even the study of human history was preserved. These are not my words was preserved by the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad Ali's.

00:17:32--> 00:17:34

You know, there's a professor at Yale University. His name is

00:17:36--> 00:18:14

Rosenthal, Professor Rosenthal, he writes a book, books and numerous books on the fact that the world had given up on history. But there's no way to know what happened in the past and stop trying to investigate the world history. Let's stop trying to understand how people were for us live and what their mistakes were and how to make tomorrow better than yesterday. He said, and this was only saved by Muslim culture. Because the Muslims believed strongly enough through therefore, that they had an accurate starting points for history. We had some general information, we had accurate stories of the prophets, accurate facts here and there. And so it gave people enough interest that

00:18:14--> 00:18:33

it's possible and they build from there, they build on that. So even history, even the existence of Europe was based on the message of our Prophet alayhi salatu salam who could not read nor write, nor saw Europe nor could imagine it. Hundreds and hundreds of years before that. He was sent out via

00:18:37--> 00:18:37

Hungary does

00:18:47--> 00:18:51

also have the books of prophecy, of the proofs of prophethood

00:18:53--> 00:18:54

are his accomplishments.

00:18:57--> 00:19:28

As he promised you head on over idk coolly as Allah promised to make evidence clear over all religions, all faiths? What was the accomplishment of our Prophet alayhi salatu salam, who we're looking at. And I wish to remind our brothers and sisters always that playing with your phone in Joomla will invalidate their own individual when he was speaking, it is your duty to try your best to find something of benefit to extract from his words to benefit you for your week and beyond.

00:19:29--> 00:19:49

And the Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam said men less than house off of level whomever keeps playing with the pebbles that supposedly was pebbles. That day and age, whoever has participated in items speech meaning he has rendered his jumada award that was dumb or useless, even if it's valid, valid with no reward from it, no fruits.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

And so what was the accomplishment of our Prophet Mohammed Ali salado. So if you think about it correctly, there was no one accomplishment. You can pick

00:20:01--> 00:20:12

Like he was not a great generalized auto select only because they were great generals in history. He was not just a founder of religion, only the people that are founded religions, very few, but they've got it.

00:20:13--> 00:20:35

He was not someone who's just a source of inspiration for inspiration for so many people because of one event in his life. Like the crucifixion, Christianity, that's the one seed that defines the whole religion. That wasn't it. In reality, what made the Prophet Alex autosens accomplishments, so special was that he was all of this in one manner.

00:20:36--> 00:20:50

That is what is different. And we should always keep mindful of that, because so many non Muslims have kept mindfulness, you know, in the book that Muslims love to go the 100 greatness by Michael Hart.

00:20:52--> 00:21:38

To keep it very brief, his explanation is what he was trying to chart, the 100 greatest, most impactful people in human history, influence whether you like them or not, it's not in this discussion. How much effect have they had? Number one out of the 100, he said was Muhammad Ali's love was set up. But why? He said, I know because it's politicized, politically, you know, contented with its bad press, it doesn't follow the foreign policies of our country. He's an American story. He says, I know a lot of people are gonna get upset at me for picking him up. But the issue is, he was the only person that was supremely successful on the religious and the secular political level.

00:21:39--> 00:21:42

I couldn't find anyone else in human history that was able to do that.

00:21:43--> 00:22:22

Jesus Christ was successful religiously, right? But he was fought off by the people and he couldn't hold his ground. According to the Christian tradition, he was killed. Isaac Newton was extremely successful. He's number two, Jesus, three of these guys was on the second of their level, inventions, wise, great influence, everyone's dependent on him on his discoveries today, but on a religious level, people do not consider him a resource or source a legitimate source to inform their religious views. You know, another friendship story. He says, it's not just what he accomplished, he said if you look at what he tried to do, he tried to

00:22:23--> 00:22:41

control if you will address have a C guide every single aspect of a human beings life. He said that you mungus goal he has. And then you look at what kind of resources the means. He says those are the two ways to measure greatness. Can we really say any man is greater than

00:22:43--> 00:22:46

this is a fundamental martines statement.

00:22:48--> 00:22:54

A man by Draper says this is a person JW Draper was a future story and hearing the words.

00:22:55--> 00:22:59

He said that in 569, a man named Mohammed was born.

00:23:00--> 00:23:18

He says who has influenced exercise the greatest amount of influence on the human race ever. And it just might These are his words, it just might entitle him to, to the title, it just may justify the title, a messenger of God.

00:23:19--> 00:23:59

setup. These are people who understand how to compare and accomplishments of people. The last of them also another man, his name was Bosworth Smith and forgive me for going through so much abuse in a hotel. But it's important for you to know how easy it is to recognize there's something unique here. He said, this is the only person he says by a fortune false wordsmith says, by a fortune absolutely unique in human history, no one's ever done this. He was the founder of a state, a country, and then Empire, all the countries went under him and their religion in one person. He said he was the Pope. without all the formalities of the boat. You don't have to go through a million

00:23:59--> 00:24:04

hoops to get to him. And he was Caesar. He was the king of Rome without the armies of Caesar.

00:24:07--> 00:24:18

He said, None of this makes sense. This was your rock without a software setup. How does someone accomplish all of it together in a 23 year life?

00:24:20--> 00:24:28

And it wasn't just not just that our prophet SAW send him off his accomplishments was that he was the most loved man

00:24:29--> 00:24:31

in all of human history.

00:24:32--> 00:24:35

You know, one time they were they were debating with the famous accuracy that

00:24:36--> 00:24:40

they said to him, no one is loved more than Jesus, 2 billion people

00:24:41--> 00:24:42

loving Jesus Christ.

00:24:44--> 00:24:56

He said you have 2 billion people that profess the love of Jesus, where we have 1.5 billion people that practice the love of God is

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

what is you moving the shepherd and soul All right.

00:25:01--> 00:25:16

Are you not giving precedence to his loving his guidance, his lifestyle, his ways over anybody else's? Why do we use them sometimes put up with being looked at weird for dressing a certain way or growing a certain beard or otherwise it's out of our love.

00:25:18--> 00:25:39

We don't care if it's consistent with culture, across time and space sometimes because we love him that much. Nobody has ever been loved by him. And if you realize the love of the companions becomes even clearer, taking arrow after arrow in their backs becoming paralyzed without hesitation being informed their family members have died. They say no worries Mohammed Ali's auto setup

00:25:40--> 00:26:21

that was obviously accomplishments and of his accomplishments. And with that I close and we move on to his prophecies the things that no one could have ever known that he spoke day in and day out and they unfolded exactly as he said them in detail without ever messing up without ever being mistaken. His prediction is levels that up that will be for our next one chocolate. But let me say the last thing his accomplishments is that he accomplished all of this. So it wasn't just a message that was theory that was advanced, beautiful, so impressive, but he couldn't define our profit at his level celeb he revolutionized the human race in just one generation.

00:26:22--> 00:26:28

Who do you know, takes a whole society from alcoholism, and overnight, it's gone.

00:26:30--> 00:26:34

In this country, 100 years ago, we tried this and we failed.

00:26:35--> 00:26:45

The laws that tried to abolish drinking failed. And so they tried to put lighter laws, because they couldn't they weren't able to shut down the industry. He shut it down in one generation

00:26:46--> 00:27:27

who do you know has ever been able to remove racism from society? He did it in one generation who do you know has ever been able to get people to stop killing their babies for another ever reason? I they're afraid to be poor. And the abortions are everywhere nowadays, or they just prefer a girl boys over girls and that's still prominent. Do you know for the past 100 years, with the ability to have extensive surveillance and the tightest laws and the advancement of technology, people are still killing that culture still exists all over India today. They're still unable to stop. He Alex was stopped What do bananas, female infanticide, killing babies and when they find out they're a

00:27:27--> 00:27:29

girl in one generation.

00:27:31--> 00:28:15

And these people were not just ready for a button to be pressed. These people were people that had savagery, had brutality had lack of organization lack of civility in their homes. Our profit is auto Sam was set to perhaps the most difficult people, the Arabs of Arabia so that the transformation that will happen overnight is just so impressive. And that's why a lot so it just said though, in fact, the mapping of the Jimmy on my left you spend every penny on earth wouldn't be able to pull this off, pull these people together and unify them and turn them into a bright spot for planet Earth. If you spent everything on Earth, you will not be able to mend their hearts when I came up

00:28:17--> 00:29:01

with a lot of mending all of these warring brutal hearts together. That was his accomplishments from people that could bury their daughters alive as they stared into their eyes, people that would kill each other over a drink of wine. People that were worried about their food and their drink and barefoot and cold and they get in so many respects to people who spend their nights. There's tears streaming down their cheeks longing for Allah reciting His word and living their day giving up for others selfless, sacrificing, writing out to all the tyrants, liberating humanity, allowing them to enjoy their freedoms, caring about a bird and a little animal. This is his accomplishment it was set

00:29:01--> 00:29:29
