My dear brothers and sisters.
Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran tells us in Surah
a tilba verse 128. This is the verse before the last verse of the surah Allah subhanho wa Taala says, la caja
Kumara soo Min fusi comme Aziza la Hema.
Hurry, Aleikum bill meanie naraku for Rahim
la Khadija Kumara soo Min fusi come as he is on La Hema, Ronnie Harrison la come, mini Nara Rahim.
One of the most beautiful verses, this verse and the one after it, which is the ending of the sutra
where have the last word actually the last portion of the Quran that was found and added to the must have.
And what I mean by that is when the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam were were in the process of collecting the Quran in one document.
They were looking
for a written
document for each verse that they would put, it has to have been written in the time of the Prophet sallallahu. And even seven different companions, wrote whatever segments of the Quran, they were, they needed to write down. So different people are different things. So during the time of Hubble baccaro, De La Hoya, and
when Walker finally gave the order
to zeta Miss Abbott, and his committee or his team to
compile the code, they were looking for these verses.
Right? So they collected all the horror. Now, they didn't have it, and many others and people on his team, they know this verse, they have memorized it, but they were looking for someone that had written it down during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they finally found it. So it was the last two verses of the Quran to be to be inserted in that in that must have or in that collection. So they left basically blank space for that until they found that document. And they preserved all of that.
this is just a very interesting story about this, these two verses, but this verse that I want to come comment on, and for us to reflect upon.
It's a verse that talks about it talks about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And just to quickly put things in context, if you go to the to the previous verses in that page in the last page of surah
Toba, Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about when revelation comes when revelation when Allah Subhana, Allah says new revelation, that you had a different reaction, there was the reaction of the believers, the sincere, true believers, who welcome anything that comes from Allah and His Messenger, even if it contains some difficulty, even if they have to struggle, but because they love a lion, His Messenger, they trust Allah and His Messenger, they have full trust in Allah azza wa jal, not only in terms of their risk, you know, trusting Allah as in terms of your risk, is something in basic, even animals do this.
And I think, deep, deep in our hearts,
right, most of us, if not all of us, know, at the end of the day, that alone will take care of us. Even if we don't behave
in a manner that reflects that, at the end of the day, we know that Allah has been taking care of us, even when we were not able to take care of ourselves, and Allah will take care of us one way or another, deep inside, again, we may not maybe our greed, you know, causes us to behave in a manner that does not reflect this conviction, or this certainty. So when it comes to telecoil, or trust in alarms or gel, in terms of our provision, and our risk, this is this is the easy part. The one aspect that many people nowadays are struggling with, is trusting Allah and His Messenger, with,
with with lifestyle,
when it comes to how they live their life,
when it comes to their beliefs, when it comes to their value system.
This is the biggest struggle of our time, and a lot, so jump in this, these verses that came before this ayah that I want to discuss with you. Allah Subhana Allah tells us that when a sutra comes down, you know, you had the believers who accepted the loss of Hallo to Allah and His Messenger sallallahu Sallam wholeheartedly, and they accepted everything, even if it contains some difficulty. You know why? Because when you know the source of something that will change your attitude towards it. If you are connected, and if you believe in if you trust the source, but if you don't trust the source, no matter what comes from that source, even if it's the best recommendation and the best
prescription ever, you're going to be doubtful. And you're going to be hesitant, and you're going to be skeptical.
but so this is not the case of the believers. Now, the munaf yakun, were the other category of people that whenever our revelation came down, whenever our verse or a suitor comes down, they always have the wrong attitude. Why? Because to begin with, they never had that full conviction and trust in Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they did not trust the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they also do not trust Allah as urgent. Because if you don't trust the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, that means that you don't trust a law surgeon.
And I will tell you, if you don't trust the prophetic tradition, the servant of the province of Isola, that means you don't trust the Quran. And you don't trust the one that sent this prophet, and the one that preserved this tradition, this prophetic tradition for us.
And that's why I say we need to go back and re examine. To what extent do we trust a large region? How much trust do we have in a large region in terms of guidance, and lifestyle? And how we should? And what kind of standards we should hold ourselves and our families and those who are under authority?
Do we have full trust in Allah or not?
Do we do we know that Allah Subhana Allah and His guidance, at the end of the day comes to secure our interests? It's for our best interests or not? This is a simple question.
And perhaps someone might say, Okay, why is it that we're struggling and I don't want to go into tangents here. Why is it that we're struggling with our trust in Allah or with our faith? Right? This is another subject in sha Allah to Allah maybe for another day.
But of course, you know, one basic answer that comes to mind is that we don't know Allah subhanaw taala enough.
We don't know Allah subhanaw taala enough, because as I said, if you know the source, you will have full trust, even if it's difficult, even if it's painful. An analogy that would be given would be if you go to
a medical care facility that you have full trust in
and you know, their track record and you trust them and he trusts their, their,
the service or the care that they provide. They may recommend very severe treats.
That would be very painful and very hard and very difficult. But because you trust them, you will take it, you know, at the end of the day is going to be for your own good, right?
Though it's very painful, but you trust them.
Whereas if the same treatment or the same action, if someone other than your doctor comes to tries to cut
any portion of your body, you're going to stop them.
Right? If someone comes to you will not allow that. Because you don't trust that person and you don't trust their intention. So we need to ask ourselves, why is it that we don't trust online? Is messenger, someone who I think will send them?
Do we have an issue with intent here?
So So Allah subhanaw taala, before this verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala told us about the reaction of the hypocrites when it comes to new revelation coming down, and how they are you compared to having a man What is this? Right? First in verse 124, a loss of power to Allah says, what he then owns in a pseudo tomb, I mean, whom many of you comes to heavy mana? When a surah comes down? Some of them they say the hypocrites used to say in the presence of Kenny imagine, can you imagine being in Medina, ancient Medina not even you know, modern day Medina, ancient Medina, right where the revelation would come down and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being there
gibreel comes and brings new fresh revelation and the Prophet himself recites it. And some people have the attitude, or you consider to have a matter of which one of you really felt like their email increased. This doesn't make sense. This I can relate to this. This is This doesn't seem they had issues when I fell upon who were present there. These are people who witnessed miracles.
It didn't, it didn't help them. Why? Because they did not trust the source.
So fast forward, Allah subhanaw taala and verse 128 says, to the believers of that time, and to those who will come later, and to those of us who are here today present and to the future generations of Muslims, true believers who believe in Allah and His messenger and have full trust Allah subhanaw taala says the following, La
La Khadija Kumara soo min from cecum as he is on La Hema, I need to hurry you soon la come, Bill mini narrow for him, for facts are mentioned in this verse. For facts, these facts if you were to examine and analyze
reflect upon, you cannot afford but to fall in love with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam not only should you fall in love with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but you should have full trust in Him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and adhere fully in wholeheartedly to what Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger have brought down. The first fact that is meant mentioned in this verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, la caja
Rasulo me tsunami unfussy calm, there has come to you.
There has come to you a messenger from amongst yourselves. He's one of you. And this has several meanings, right? All of which are true, right? But notice that a lot that there has come to you though Ally's the one that sent him a loss of palette and he said he has come because at some point the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had to choose the mission himself and has to carry the Lord Himself and He was self motivated some of the lohani he was sending them to deliver this message to you and I
to deliver it to as many people as possible of those who are his contemporary and save as many people as possible. And he took upon them a covenant that they will carry this message to the future generations and deliver it to as many people as possible and save as many people as possible.
Was self motivated. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
his compassion, His love, His care, his empathy and sympathy. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for humanity compelled him to carry this message and take it and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sacrifice and he went through a lot of trouble on his own someone wahala he was so he went above and beyond what was asked of him some Allahu alayhi wa sallam there has come to you on his own. Though Allah Subhana Allah is the one that commissioned him and sent him but the problem is I sort of took off sal Allahu Allah, who will send them with that energy that Allah Subhana Allah has given him there has come to you a messenger from amongst yourselves. So the first fact is that he
is one of the solimar while he was alive, he's one of us, meaning that he's a human being.
There are lots of hallertauer does not send us a aliens or angels to carry this message because we would have not been able to relate to them. I mean, even even when we say the Prophet used to do such and such, and he should do the same thing, people say, Well, he was a prophet. So imagine that he was an angel, what would what we would have have said, Imagine if Allah sent an angel, we would have said, Oh, he's an angel, and we can't do what an angel is doing. So therefore Allah sent us a human being. Though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was extraordinary, some of my heart and he was a lamb, and his character and his personality and his manners from Allahu alayhi wa sallam,
at the end of the day, he was a human being in them and a bishop. And he kept repeating that, and I
told him, I said, keep saying this,
in them, and I am a human being. And at some point, the Prophet told his companions, I am a bishop, I'm a human being.
And I am exposed and susceptible to what human beings are susceptible to.
I still have limitations, and boundaries.
Right? So this was a prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So Allah sent us a human being one of us.
He is one of us also meaning and this is something special about our loss of Hamlet Allah has chosen
the Arabs for he's one of them. And this is something even more special that Allah Subhana Allah chose him from Croatia. So there is also a special message to kurush here that remember, he is one of you. You know him, you know him, you know him very well.
If there was anyone, and there was worthy of caring God's final message, it was Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that's what a loss will was. So the loss of Hamlet, Allah reminded that believers reminded all of us as human beings, that he is one of us, Allah, who I think was Salah. And by the way, when Allah also tells us that he's one of us, that means that the prophet SAW Selim understands the process of understood and he knew what it is like to be a human being, what it is like to be, you know, to be to be to be a Muslim.
For those of us who say, Oh, you don't, you know, nobody in the world understands what it's like to be a Muslim and a time where there's a lot of hostility against Muslims and Islam. You know, you know, who knew very well what it's like to be a Muslim. When everyone around him is hostile to him.
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he knew very well what it's like to be, to be that person to be at, to be taunted and to be to be harassed and to be just simply for saying or be Allah.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was one of us. Fact number two that Allah Subhana Allah mentions in the Quran.
grievous to him the prophets have said and found a lot of grievance, he found some Allahu alayhi wa sallam a lot of pain
is what you suffer the suffering of the believers, what we go through the suffering, that that we anything, any type of suffering, be it physical, emotional, whatever suffering human beings in general go through the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very concerned. And that was a very painful thing for the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam knowing that the greatest suffering a human being can experience is that of an era.
The most painful reality that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he had to deal with, was that there will be people from his own man
whom he won't be able to save.
And Allah subhanaw taala told him well, Max, I don't know what meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked one of his companions to read the Quran for him, he said, read a surah for me, and this companion happened to be reading Surah Nisa.
And when the Prophet asked him to read, he said, Afro la corralejo WinZip. Should I recite it to you when it was revealed to you he said in your head, when is my home in the lady, I enjoy listening to it from other people, and you have a beautiful voice. So this companion is reciting the sutra he said I kept reciting, until I reached for K VEDA genomic material.
In avoca, Allah shahida until I reached the verse, so how is it oh Mohammed when we are going to bring
a witness, someone to testify against every nation, and you will be brought to testify for or against these people. And, and he said, that's when the Prophet said to me has to book stop. And he said, when I looked up, I found out that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was crying.
He was crying so much so that he his his beard was wet some of them and he kept weeping.
Some scholars say well, this moment when Allah subhanho wa Taala will bring him to testify for or against his own man.
Could be what caused that? Or perhaps could it be the very following verse that comes after that verse, where Lauren's origin said,
Allah. On that day, those who rejected the faith
and disobeyed the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they would wish that Allah subhana wa tada will level them or destroy them and crush them and make them leveled to the ground that a loss of habitat will crush them, they will wish that that would happen to them. They're going to be begging for destruction, they're going to be begging for death, on that day, those who disobeyed the messenger so the fact that there will be people who will suffer because they did not obey him on the law, while he was selling them caused him a lot of concern and pain, some law and he was selling a lot of grievances on the law he was selling so much so that Allah azza wa jal repeatedly told him
Don't kill yourself over Don't, don't, don't depress yourself over this, oh Mohammed, this is the will of Allah. Allah kept reminding him of the Quran over and over again. But this is a man that loved us more than we love ourselves.
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
number three, the third fact. In addition to his care and love for humanity, sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Howdy, Aleikum, he is extremely concerned over you and with your affairs. How do you feel, he is very keen, he wants what is best for you and your families. He wants what is best for you in this life. And what is best for you in the hereafter came here to teach you how to live life to its fullest, how to have a meaningful life. But how to succeed in Africa because he knew that that's what mattered the most. And he warned you against things elements, very destructive elements in this life.
Not because he didn't want you to enjoy life, but because he knew that it could be very risky. So for instance, he told his companions will love him and crush them as much as the Prophet hated poverty. And he worked towards prosperity for his community, and his companions, by the way, prospered. They prosper they had a lot of wealth. May Allah be pleased with him and May Allah and he taught them how to deal with wealth and how to take care of it and how to how to enjoy it, and how to share it. He taught them that some allow it and sell it, but at some point, he has to sell a lot more it will send them warn them, because we have this human deficiency in us when it comes to
wealth. Right? We have this greed and we have he said, Well, I'm an officer and a monarch and
my fear is not really poverty. Sometimes poverty can bring the best out of a human being. It humbles you, it makes you a better person. He said what I fear for you is that dunia comes at you to stand eco dunia.
publikum funtana suhagra manifesto have come from what I fear for you is being competitive. And going after dunya dunya wears you out. That's what I fear for you. So the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam had concerns, legitimate concerns.
The fourth fact that this verse tells us is that he was some Allah who I think he was telling me Nina Rahim, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was
very kind and merciful. He had empathy and sympathy. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was very sympathetic, and he was very empathetic Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam he felt with people. He felt for people. He cared for people. sallallahu alayhi wasallam these were some of the characteristics of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and how he felt about us. He cried. He actually was sad one day, and one of his companions said, What is the Messenger of Allah? And he said, What did to another one and he said, I wish I can. I would be able to see my brother and
listen to this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to be with a loss of habitat. He did not want to turn a life he actually turned down the offer to live until the day of judgment. He wanted to be with a loss of habitat and once his mission was complete, the prophet SAW Selim gave up on dunia. There was only one thing from the matters of dunya
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew he was going to miss
and which is
the ability and the chance to see those who will accept him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and believe in Him, those who will come after him. When this companion as the companions asked the Messenger of Allah, aren't we your brother? And he said, No, you're my companions. You got to see me.
You got to be around me, you're my companions. Why not? Our brothers are those who have not yet come those who will believe in me and they have not yet come
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah azza wa jal allow you and I to fully develop trust and love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Apollo has uncovered La Jolla Welcome
