Tonight, it's just going to be a very short introduction in sha Allah, to the series I chose to cover throughout this month in sha Allah Who Tana,
we live in a time where anyone can have a platform in gain following
on social media, especially in a no time people who
don't have much to offer themselves, let alone humanity.
attain the status of an influencer.
And they could have hundreds of 1000s of followers
to the point where some of these influencers can start a trend, it could be a very self destructive trend, and they will find
10s of 1000s of people following those trends.
We live in a time where we have a
role model crisis.
If people are looking for someone that they would follow and emulate, and then they choose to be influenced by people just because they're famous
is a very serious problem that humanity has.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked by one of his companions
prophets and messengers, how many did Allah Subhana Allah sent and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that there were 124,000 of them
124,000 prophets, of them in some narrations, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was reported to say that 315 of them were messengers.
And out of all of these prophets and messengers, Allah azza wa jal chose 25 to be mentioned in the Quran,
to be mentioned, to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as an inspiration.
And to us,
as a source of guidance, these are the real role models, you see a role modeling is a very powerful method of teaching. It's actually one of the most, if not the most.
So ALLAH SubhanA, Allah chose the best of humans to be the recipients of his message and then
become an embodiment of that message. Live that message. humanize that message. Show us how that message is supposed to be lived, what kind of lifestyle a person is supposed to have. And when Allah azza wa jal mentions them in this beautiful book, this very powerful, it's not meant for us to just be mesmerized by the details of their stories.
It's not meant for us to entertain the events and the specifics of the lives of each one of them.
But rather Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to follow the example of these prophets and messengers, Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to be inspired by them.
And now I know that some people say, Well, you cannot expect me to be like a prophet. And obviously none of us can worship or live like a prophet. But we can be inspired by Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and the prophets before him and each and every single one of us can find an example in the stories of the prophets mentioned in the Quran that you can relate to personally.
So if you're struggling with injustice and being wronged by people, there are plenty of examples in the Quran of how to handle that and how to live a healthy life and not allow abusers to control you.
We have prophets that were thrown in jail for doing nothing, absolutely nothing innocent, the most innocent
they were thrown in jail and they endure that.
So there is an example for for those who are subjected
to such horrific abuse,
we have prophets that had family issues in crisis, whether it's with their wives or their children. If you're struggling in that department, you have plenty of examples in the Quran. Prophets that had to deal with very hard and harsh and mean parents
are the rebellion, the rebellion of their children
or their spouses or their wives turning against them.
These are real examples of people that went through these hardships. As a matter of fact, the province of Allahu alayhi wa sallam told us that prophets and messengers are tested at a much higher level than the average person.
And if you're struggling with
physical issues and problems and health matters, then you have an example in the Quran as well of a human other prophets that had to deal with that.
And they put their faith in Allah subhanho wa taala. And their model was what either married to for who is Finn,
and many other examples of how these prophets had to deal with loss
We can even learn from their humility when they experience
See Allah Subhana Allah to Allah mentions and I will close with this
up promise that he made to the prophets and the messengers, but along with them, the believers
and we hope to be of them. Allah subhana wa Tada says, in that unknown pseudo roseola now one levena Am and o Phil hayati dunya, we indeed will give victory make victorious Our messengers and those who believe and follow their example, in this life
and in the Hereafter.
This is why we need to study not the stories
and not the details of the events and what happened and where it happened. But rather the examples
of what they dealt with and how they dealt with it
and what the results were. So inshallah to Allah join me in this journey as we explore what the Quran decided what the Quran chose to highlight
of the extraordinary lives of these prophets and messengers. May Allah subhana tireless peace and blessings be upon them may Allah azza wa jal or the Unitas with them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala may make you and I have those true followers of the prophets and the messengers. May you and I be my Latina and I'm Allah, who are they him? Mina Nebby, and also the Aquino shahada even saw the Hain May Allah subhanaw taala was rector's with those who receive the favor of Allah subhanho wa Taala of the prophets and the true followers of the prophets, the martyrs and the righteous.
