Show with an agenda

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

takala Rasulullah

00:02:15--> 00:02:16

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

One of our scholars

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

was asked by his students.

00:02:31--> 00:02:32

People ask them

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

excited us about gender.

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

inspire us remind us of gender.

00:02:41--> 00:02:42

Tell us something that will make us

00:02:44--> 00:02:47

think about Jenna long. For Jenna.

00:02:49--> 00:02:51

His response was

00:02:52--> 00:02:55

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is in Jenna.

00:02:57--> 00:02:58

So all he had to tell him

00:03:08--> 00:03:13

that's all he had to tell him about Gen rasulillah in it. Everything else

00:03:15--> 00:03:16

is a bonus.

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

And that was enough.

00:03:22--> 00:03:33

That's all the believer needs to remember remind himself, but only if this person this believer if this listener if the audience understand

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

what it means to love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:03:44--> 00:03:47

the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

showed us great examples

00:03:52--> 00:03:52

of what

00:03:54--> 00:03:56

love looks like.

00:03:57--> 00:04:02

And why shouldn't the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam be our most beloved?

00:04:05--> 00:04:11

And what is in it for us? When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam becomes our most beloved?

00:04:13--> 00:04:17

What does it really mean to love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to begin with.

00:04:19--> 00:04:20

Some people say

00:04:22--> 00:04:28

that the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, the love of the Prophet means to adhere to his tradition. follow his example.

00:04:30--> 00:04:31

Others say

00:04:33--> 00:04:38

it is to support the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to stand by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and after his death,

00:04:39--> 00:04:41

to stand up for his message.

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

Some say

00:04:46--> 00:04:50

the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to remember him always

00:04:51--> 00:04:57

and send you a piece or send your greetings and salutations to him Salalah who I think he was sending them

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

and so on and so forth.

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

different interpretations that are given, for what the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam should look like.

00:05:08--> 00:05:22

But when you really analyze them, you find them to be manifestations of the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam fruits of the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam results of the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but true love.

00:05:24--> 00:05:25

When you truly love someone,

00:05:27--> 00:05:39

you embody that individuals character, lifestyle, you embrace that person, you want to look like that person, you are convinced

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

of the value of all of that.

00:05:44--> 00:05:45

There are people

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

who dress up.

00:05:49--> 00:06:01

There are people who actually go and alter their, their their faces and their looks and their hair to look like one of their favorite celebrity.

00:06:03--> 00:06:14

They actually there are people who actually believe that they are the reincarnation of their favorite celebrities. And that celebrity did not die.

00:06:16--> 00:06:22

Of course, this is madness. May Allah subhanaw taala preserve us and protect us.

00:06:26--> 00:06:29

But if there's anyone any human being that deserves to be loved,

00:06:31--> 00:06:34

and thought off, and thought about

00:06:37--> 00:06:40

and followed and not questioned,

00:06:41--> 00:06:44

is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:06:46--> 00:06:47

for the believer.

00:06:49--> 00:06:52

This is what gets him or her going in life.

00:06:54--> 00:07:05

You see, the scholars say that our oma will not be revived will not be fixed, will not be on the right path until they follow

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

until they

00:07:09--> 00:07:17

become like the former's of this oma, that first generation, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:07:19--> 00:07:23

And one of the common features common qualities

00:07:24--> 00:07:36

that anyone if you were to travel back to that time, and live amongst the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. One thing that you would have found with all of them is this

00:07:37--> 00:07:59

deep love and sense of appreciation and respect that they all had for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what you would have seen, you would have seen people who were willing to put their lives on the line, who were willing to spend every Dirham and every dinar that they had, for the sake

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

of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam improving their love for him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:08:08--> 00:08:15

Their love reached a point where they could not imagine the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam being hurt.

00:08:17--> 00:08:18

While they're safe,

00:08:21--> 00:08:25

being hurt, while they are enjoying time with their family.

00:08:28--> 00:08:42

And they said it even when they were facing death, when they were facing in the face of death. They said it and they stood their ground, they knew that the claim in and of itself was going to cost them their lives.

00:08:44--> 00:08:53

Some of them were put in situations where if all they had to say is just a word, just say something, even if you don't mean it, you don't have to mean it, say it.

00:08:55--> 00:09:03

And you will evade death. Say it and you will avoid being tortured to death. And they were not willing to give

00:09:04--> 00:09:05

their enemies

00:09:06--> 00:09:25

that they couldn't they couldn't bring themselves to say anything, to offend the prop to have to offend the province of a law to sell them or to express nothing to express what you know, other than what they really have in their hearts which is deep sense of love and appreciation for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:09:29--> 00:09:30

abou Jana

00:09:33--> 00:09:49

and other companions kept throwing themselves in front of the province sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Battle of taking taking arrows and spears, shielding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and saying Now hurry doing an Attica rasulillah was suddenly doing a surgery Kr rasulillah

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

the women of the companions defended the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came back

00:10:01--> 00:10:05

And the news came back that there were a lot of casualties.

00:10:07--> 00:10:08

One of

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

the female companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told that three members of her family were killed.

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

Her father, her husband, and her brother,

00:10:26--> 00:10:30

and every time she read, she received a body. She kept saying,

00:10:32--> 00:10:56

masala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what happened to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they kept saying, Clara will be hamdulillah he came out to have been, he is good, he's fine. He is as you would love for him to be he's safe. He's fine. He's coming. But Ronnie onboard LA, she said, allow me to see him. Let me see him.

00:10:58--> 00:11:07

So they finally pointed at him Salalah. They said that is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and when she saw him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she said

00:11:08--> 00:11:10

Kumasi with him by the kegel

00:11:11--> 00:11:16

every calamity after you is nothing. So as long as you're fine, we're all fine.

00:11:18--> 00:11:43

the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one of the most common statements to follow that they would, they would, they would whenever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to name his mission, or whenever they address him. One of the most common statements or phrases that they would add to that was B Abby Anto me, or B Abby who me me my father and my mother B ransom for him.

00:11:45--> 00:11:55

Which means that they loved him and valued the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, more than than, than their own parents, the abbey who mean sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:11:57--> 00:11:57

So van

00:11:59--> 00:12:04

was seen by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was getting

00:12:05--> 00:12:06

he was getting weak.

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

And he was obviously

00:12:11--> 00:12:24

depressed, had a lot of anxiety. It took a toll on him physically. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, so that was the matter with you, what happened to you?

00:12:25--> 00:12:27

So he said, messenger of Allah.

00:12:28--> 00:12:58

Whenever I think of akhira whenever I think of Acura, and whenever I think about you, and I think about myself, I realize that this life is going to come to an end soon, sooner or later, you're going to leave us or we're gonna die before you. Then eventually, even if we intergender Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I realized that I will not be able to see you anymore. That's my fear. He said, Why? You're going to be in the highest of France. Where are we going to be?

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

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave Phil van, this beautiful news. He told him, don't you know that you will be with those whom you love.

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

So what is left for you and me?

00:13:16--> 00:13:24

How can we ever make for those of us who love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? There is one message that I want you to walk out with today.

00:13:27--> 00:13:35

Of course, someone might say his Aquila hair for reminding us it's very inspiring that you reminded us of the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and of course we all love him.

00:13:38--> 00:13:42

We all love him. Do we really love Him? Do we really love him more than anyone else?

00:13:46--> 00:13:55

Do we value the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam do we value the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his principles and teachings more than any other teachings and principles.

00:13:57--> 00:14:00

We really have to be honest with ourselves, and if not why?

00:14:02--> 00:14:28

Some people might say I love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but how much should I love him? I don't know. I don't know whether I love him more than myself whether I love him more than them than my parents. Perhaps you don't know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and perhaps we can begin by learning about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam learning about the legacy of this man learning about the Prophet Allah send them as a person knowing about him. Some of these are like, you know, your favorite celebrity.

00:14:29--> 00:14:36

I feel ashamed to say this. And it should be. I should be saying more than you know your favorite celebrity.

00:14:40--> 00:14:51

Like we know and follow some people that actually annoy us as much as they annoy us and we still follow them and we know we know plenty about them.

00:14:53--> 00:14:57

And we shouldn't preoccupy ourselves with people. That

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

every time they tweet

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

or other statements, it just drives us crazy.

00:15:03--> 00:15:07

Right? But they somehow know how to make us obsessed with them and their statements.

00:15:08--> 00:15:17

Yet, we don't spend that much time with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And by the way, we as Muslims, we have a great gift,

00:15:19--> 00:15:23

a gift that we can enjoy ourselves and pass it on to our children, our family members.

00:15:26--> 00:15:35

It's really a gift for humanity, because there are some people who are inspired by this gift, and it brings them to slam. It leads them back to the truth.

00:15:36--> 00:15:44

But we have it at our disposal, there is no man there is no prophet, whose life and the details of his life

00:15:45--> 00:15:49

have been recorded like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam no one.

00:15:51--> 00:15:58

We know where he was born when he was born, where he lived. Almost every significant detail about his life is recorded.

00:15:59--> 00:16:05

We know where he died. We know where he's buried some Allahu alayhi wa sallam, it's a reality.

00:16:07--> 00:16:15

You know, some people might say, well, there's plenty of evidence you cannot no one can ever come. No one in his right state of mind can come and question

00:16:16--> 00:16:22

that a man a great man by the name of Mohammed bin Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:16:23--> 00:16:27

lived and lived a great life. No, but no one can question that.

00:16:29--> 00:16:32

His story is the most inspiring of all.

00:16:33--> 00:16:43

His character is of the greatest, if not the actually it is the greatest sallallahu alayhi wasallam. No one from Adam, Allah, Instagram until the very last person.

00:16:45--> 00:16:45

No one

00:16:47--> 00:16:56

his words that he uttered, most inspiring, most amazing and profound words sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:16:58--> 00:17:02

Everything about him is fascinating. Everything about him is fascinating.

00:17:05--> 00:17:24

But that's not where subs is. Love some Allahu alayhi wa sallam is so crucial for the believer is a sign of belief. Not only is it a sign of belief, but it's actually one of the key ingredients to be able to enjoy belief. Enjoy a man. You know, sometimes some of us find a man to be hard.

00:17:26--> 00:17:35

We struggled with it. It's not it's not a pleasant thing has a sour taste. But a man shouldn't have a sour taste a man is actually sweet.

00:17:37--> 00:17:47

It's sweet. For those who know how to taste it for those who have the proper ingredients is the sweetest thing that you can ever

00:17:49--> 00:18:13

experience. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that these three ingredients are the following. Two men couldn't have he would have been the hell out of a man. There are three components, three elements, whoever has them, he will be able through them with them see, he will he or she will be able to enjoy the sweetness of a man.

00:18:14--> 00:18:26

So a man by itself without these three ingredients or three components or elements may not taste you may not get the real taste of eema might be bitter, it might be

00:18:27--> 00:18:28

tough to swallow.

00:18:29--> 00:18:33

But if you have these three ingredients with it, if you add them

00:18:34--> 00:18:44

if you sprinkle them on a man, you will be able not only to enjoy you will not only be able to swallow or take it you will be able to enjoy it.

00:18:46--> 00:18:56

You will be able to enjoy living a life of a man and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says the first one. A akuna la hora Sula, who had the La mesilla Houma

00:18:58--> 00:19:03

to love en la and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than anyone or anything else.

00:19:05--> 00:19:17

And for those of us who wonder why the man of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam manifested itself in the way it did is because they love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than anyone or anything else.

00:19:18--> 00:20:00

Nothing came before the Prophet. They were so quick, even in their own statements whenever they uttered a word they made sure, right, one of the companions of the Prophet one of the most fascinating stories in lines is when I saw that one of the companions of the Prophet was talking to his son, and he was about to tell his son something to advise him. And in the process, he's trying to remind his son how, how dear or how, how much he loves him. So in the process, he says to his son, Yabu in a year, oh, my son, in the katana, you know, and I have goodness, Eli, that you are the most beloved of people.

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

To my heart to me that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, after the Messenger of Allah.

00:20:08--> 00:20:37

I mean, he didn't say, Well, of course obvious when I say to my son, or my spouse, or my parents, I love you. I love you more than anyone. You're the most beloved person to me, of course, that excludes the Prophet. No, he couldn't even say that he had to mention that. He said, you know, that I love you the most after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So therefore 123 he was giving him advice. But the point is that even when he uttered the word like that, he wanted to make sure that, you know, he couldn't

00:20:39--> 00:21:20

say akuna la hora, sudo habila him ESEA Houma to love a person for the sake of Allah and to hate to go back to the state of disbelief, like you hate being thrown in and fire these three components will make you enjoy the sweetness of email. But amongst them is to love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than anyone or anything else. I asked Allah so just to make you an eye of those who realize the value of this man. And I asked Allah subhanaw taala, to inspire you and me to continue to study his life, and to know about him and to love him sallallahu alayhi wasallam as he should be loved, and to follow his example, and to change our lifestyle to resemble that of the

00:21:20--> 00:21:23

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or at least to be approved

00:21:24--> 00:21:34

by the principles of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Apollo hidden code was so thoroughly welcome first of all we have Calico please move forward and fill in the gaps Baraka Luffy

00:21:58--> 00:22:07

hamdu lillahi wa salatu salam ala Lena safavid Imam Malik Rahim Allah said, This is amazing. You'll find this in

00:22:09--> 00:22:12

you will find this in Colm novella

00:22:13--> 00:22:19

Mr Malik says about the use of DNA. He said I used to watch him

00:22:20--> 00:22:32

I used to watch you and Mr. Malik up until you know for a while he did not consider him you know worthy of of his family collecting or accepting his idea.

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

Right. So,

00:22:36--> 00:22:43

and in a very similar statement is made about Muhammad Yunus. Great Mohammed heavyweight, he said.

00:22:44--> 00:22:57

Then I realized that every time he mentioned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam damata You know, every time he mentioned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his eyes will be full of tears.

00:22:59--> 00:23:01

Whenever the Prophet is mentioned, out of love,

00:23:03--> 00:23:05

so he started to accept his idea.

00:23:10--> 00:23:15

Because it's a heart that has that kind of love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:23:17--> 00:23:39

In these days, their standards were that oh, this person is not capable of first of all lying obviously. Secondly, this, you know, would not attribute a lie to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, someone with this level of love will be studying the life of the prophet will be will be will be a scholar, a true scholar, who statements have to be valued and accepted.

00:23:42--> 00:23:50

This is during the days where there was no they did not make a distinction between a spirituality and intellectual capacity or scholarship.

00:23:51--> 00:23:54

They both went hand in hand.

00:23:57--> 00:23:57

So,

00:23:59--> 00:24:06

learn about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved him as the early sky as the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in their early scholars.

00:24:07--> 00:24:21

used to love him some Allahu alayhi wa sallam, when you get to know someone, there is no way that you will be able to love someone as you should until you love them. Sometimes it takes years until you know them until you study them. Sometimes it takes years

00:24:23--> 00:24:32

in order to ask people who have good relationship with it with friends or even family members or their spouses. You know, Mashallah we see that your love is growing,

00:24:33--> 00:24:38

unshakable, nothing shakes. Yeah, I know this very well. I know this person very well.

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

Right.
