00:01:17--> 00:01:18

de Lima.

00:01:19--> 00:01:29

We begin by thanking and praising Allah subhana wa tada the most immersive feature of one's column. A collection begs itself Why? What's so special about this town?

00:01:32--> 00:01:58

You may find other cities in the world that are more beautiful. Geographically speaking with more greenery and more rivers and lakes and the ocean side, you may find cities in the world that are more advanced and more well organized and the urban development is well thought out. You may find other cities that are cleaner with less pollution, pollution, whether it be sound or air or different types of pollutants.

00:01:59--> 00:02:11

But nevertheless, Muslims and believers all across the world have love for this city. And the answer is both very simple and very profound. It's because of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:13--> 00:02:37

It's because of the love that this Omaha's for the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and that this was a city that Allahu subhana wa tada chose for His Messenger, the best of messengers, but also the best of all creation. Allahu subhana wa tada chose this to be the city that he would migrate to, and settle in and develop and establish.

00:02:38--> 00:02:46

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam chose this city for himself, even though he had the opportunity to go back to his hometown

00:02:48--> 00:03:06

and it was the final resting place of the Prophet Mohammed Salah long and he was seldom those that visit Medina have the opportunity to give Sam to give Salutations to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as He is buried there, in the house of his wife at Isha only Allahu taala. And

00:03:07--> 00:03:53

so because we have this immense amount of love and veneration for Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam It is important then that we channel this very strong emotion in the way that Allahu subhana wa tada wants us to channel it. So let us spend a few minutes in the most beautiful of conversations, any conversation that revolves around Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, automatically becomes beloved to the hearts and the minds in the ears. So let us spend some time discussing what exactly is the right of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon us, or rights, plural. Because yes, he does have rights upon us spawns. We only can do certain things to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi

00:03:53--> 00:04:17

wasallam. Even though he is not physically living amongst us today, he still has rights over us. So we have to learn and understand and remind one another of these rights so that we can fulfill them, and make sure that we don't forget or leave out any one of them. Because if we want to be true to this claim of loving Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then let us uphold our rights towards him.

00:04:19--> 00:04:29

or her it was Salaam, as we mentioned, is the greatest of the messengers and the greatest of the creation and that is very evident when you read the Quran.

00:04:30--> 00:05:00

When you read the speech and the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala in multiple places in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala displays and shows to us a great level of love and respect towards Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. One example of that, if you pause and you read through different passages of the Quran, you will find that there is a lot of mention of the messengers that came before Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam that were sent to different nations

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

In different periods of time, and you find that Allahu subhana wa

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

tells us about conversations that he had with these different prophets and messengers. And what's beautiful and subtle yet amazing, is how Allahu subhana wa Taala calls out to these different prophets and messengers by their name

00:05:22--> 00:05:35

with a literary tool known as yo NIDA when you want to call someone say I want to call Brother Mohammed who's sitting at the end of the masala I will say yeah, Mohammed or if I want to call brother Ahmed who's sitting there I will say yeah,

00:05:36--> 00:05:47

we're gonna call the sister sitting over there. Oh, say yeah, Isha. These, these this small word constructed of two letters. Yeah. is a form of calling out to someone and getting their attention.

00:05:49--> 00:06:24

And Allahu subhana wa tada calls out to Yeah, Adam was gonna enter was ojochal genma. Allah calls out to new. Yeah, no, it will be salamina Allah calls out to zecharia yes Acadia in aventura. He calls out to yah yah. Yah. Yah. Yah Yah. hudl kita Baba Baba, a la casa to masa yeah Moosa in his coffee to columnists. Yes, yeah, Isa, Allah subhanaw taala calls out to all of these messengers by name, but you will not find in a single place in the Quran. Yeah, Mohammed.

00:06:27--> 00:06:36

And if you don't believe me, read the Quran and try to find it yourself. But what you will find in Nepal is a US Navy.

00:06:39--> 00:06:52

Yeah, you have as soon Allah subhanaw taala refers to Mohammed Salim as nippy. As prophet as long as soon as messenger. He doesn't even call out to him by his name out of respect

00:06:54--> 00:07:12

to your father, do you call him by his name? Or you say Oh, Father, oh, dad, Baba, Abby, or your grandfather. You don't refer to these people by their name because out of respect when you want to call it to your mother, you don't say you don't call her by her name. You say mom, mother on me.

00:07:14--> 00:08:01

This is a way of showing respect. Likewise, Allah subhana wa tada displays this level of respect and honoring to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. A lot also tells us of the different aspects of Mohammed Salah Manila praises him for that. For example, in sawtell column Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah, Avi, Allah subhanaw taala praises the character of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and says that you are one who behaves upon very high moral, standing and high standards for character and behavior. This is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is the messenger that you and I were blessed to be from his oma. So let us give him his rights. First and foremost, the first

00:08:01--> 00:08:13

right that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has not only upon you and me, but upon every single being that came after him. His element will be the odd sanity

00:08:15--> 00:08:22

to have a man to believe in Mohammed salado solemn with conviction and accept the message that he came forth with.

00:08:23--> 00:08:28

You know, oftentimes we refer to the Muslim global community as

00:08:31--> 00:08:44

actually the word oma has different usages. There is one usage of the word Ahmed to refer to every single person that came after Mohammed Salah Selim, whether they are a believer or not only to Dawa

00:08:46--> 00:08:58

because Mohammed Salim was sent as a messenger not only to a specific group of people at a specific time, many people think oh, he was an Arab prophet who has said in the Arabian Peninsula to Arab speaking people.

00:08:59--> 00:09:22

But that is not the case. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was set as a messenger to all people, those that resided at his time and those that came after him until the day of judgment. And it is for that reason that the message that the wording and the revelation that was given to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Allah promised and guaranteed to preserve it in nanosilica, what in

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

law?

00:09:25--> 00:09:55

Allah subhanaw taala used elements of emphasis three times in this verse to guarantee that the message of Mohammed Saracen will be preserved because Mohammed Salim is a messenger for all people until the end of time. So all of these people are reportedly owner of Mohammed Salah Salem in a general sense amongst those people will be those that believe in amongst those will be those that reject the message. those that believe will be oma two and a Java, the specific oma those that believe in Prophet Mohammed solahart are similar.

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

But the first write that he has, again, is that he

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

key is to be believed in an email and will be, nobody can claim and say that they are a believer if they reject Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:10:12--> 00:10:19

that's number one. Number two is it Tina who, following the messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:10:20--> 00:10:27

And for each of these rites there are multiple verses in the Quran to establish the proof for this.

00:10:28--> 00:10:54

In many places, no Quran Allah uses the command verb, me know Villa, he was truly believe in Allah and His messenger. And as for following him, Allahu Subhana, Allah said, on the Atacama rasuluh women have come and open to that which is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded you to do, then do it, and that which he forbade you from then stop, don't engage in those activities.

00:10:56--> 00:11:08

don't engage in those activities. So it is not sufficient for a person to say I believe in Mohammed Salah Salem, they have to then fulfill the other right, which is following him and he is Salatu was Salam.

00:11:09--> 00:11:22

And a person's belief in Mohammed Salah Salem will be deficient if their actions are not following suit, if they are not actually obeying what the messenger sallallahu wasallam commanded them to do,

00:11:23--> 00:11:26

or not staying away from that which he prohibited.

00:11:27--> 00:11:43

So number one is believing in the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Number two is following the prophesized element obey Him and that which he commanded and obey Him in that which he presented as well. And number three, is loving the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:11:44--> 00:12:07

loving the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam it comes in multiple authentic narrations and a hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that your Eman now you know I had to come Hector, the man of any one of you your belief will not be complete until you love the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than anyone else.

00:12:10--> 00:12:18

Now this is easy to do when it comes to lip service. We can easily say that we love the Messenger of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam,

00:12:19--> 00:12:32

we can name our children after him. We can sing beautiful songs and write poetry. We can put his name up in beautiful gold threaded frames up in our homes and our walls.

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

But that is a very shallow

00:12:38--> 00:12:48

method of expressing your love for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. In order to truly embody love for Mohammed's Arsenal, refer back to right number two.

00:12:50--> 00:12:52

All of these rights are intertwined.

00:12:53--> 00:12:58

Following him and he is Salatu was Salam. But there's another aspect of love as well.

00:13:01--> 00:13:06

There's another aspect of love. You see, there are people in society today that are loved.

00:13:07--> 00:13:16

And when someone is loved, they are constantly on your mind. And they are constantly occupying space in your conversations.

00:13:18--> 00:13:22

How often do we think about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi? Salaam?

00:13:23--> 00:13:34

How often is he the subject of our conversations? Whether it be amongst our friends over the dinner table or even with our co workers, or people that we spend a lot of time with?

00:13:35--> 00:13:42

And how often do we try to be the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, especially in his dealings?

00:13:44--> 00:13:47

That would also that would be true love

00:13:48--> 00:13:54

that you see a person behaving in a certain way you ask them, why are you doing that? They say because Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam did that.

00:13:55--> 00:13:59

And I love him. So I want to do what I did. That's love.

00:14:01--> 00:14:22

Now you cannot achieve that method of love if you don't spend time learning. So a prerequisite to this right, the third right of loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a prerequisite of it is spending time no investing time and effort and intellectual strength in learning about the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:14:24--> 00:14:32

For if we don't spend time learning about someone, then there is no way that we can actually follow them. And if we don't follow them, then how can we claim that we love them?

00:14:34--> 00:14:36

It doesn't make sense.

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

So we have to believe in Mohammed Salah long, right? He was in love. We have to obey Him. And we have to love him. And how can we love him by truly obeying Him? And how can we get to that level of love by learning about him? Le salatu salam May Allah subhana wa tada guide us to follow the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to believe in him.

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

To love him and to learn about every single detail of his life, we ask Allah subhana wa tada for sincerity and success in this endeavor. We already had our Sofitel la Hollywood a commonly cited Muslim in me calling them istockphoto inna who will repent to Allah for he is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful.

00:15:35--> 00:15:36

hamdu Lillah

00:15:37--> 00:15:48

wa salatu wa ceramide me Lana b abeja long Masoli wa Sallim wa barik ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira

00:15:49--> 00:16:33

Allahu sukanto to Allah honored Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Quran in many different ways, and of the most beautiful ways that he honored him is when Allah subhanho wa Taala informed us that he himself and the angels after him send Salat and Salaam upon Muhammad Sallallahu ala He will send them and then Allah Subhana Allah commanded us as well to send a light and send out upon the messenger sallallahu wasallam insalata Allah subhanaw taala said in the law how women are equal to who your son lunarian and maybe you're living in Amman or suddenly earlier he was suddenly moved to Lima, Allah subhana wa tada commanded us to do this. So we should obey. Whenever we hear the name of

00:16:33--> 00:17:14

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam let us send Salat and Salaam salutations compliments, asking Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to shower Mohammed Saleh to sell them with mercy and with blessings. That is something that Allah subhanaw taala does, and tells us that he does. It is something that the angels love to do. And it is something that we as believers have been commanded to do as well. So not only is this one of the rights of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam but it is also a means for us to gain blessing in our life. The purpose of a longer it will send them said, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allahu Allah, He, whoever sends me and salutation to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:17:14--> 00:17:31

sallam, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah the Most High will then send 10 times Tara fold the number of prayers for blessing and mercy upon you. So let us not be stingy with ourselves solu Allah rasulillah sun salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:17:33--> 00:18:15

three of the many different rights of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the most important, believing in sallallahu alayhi wa sallam obeying Him. And third, loving Him at His salatu salam. And we spoke about the importance of learning about life and his legacy, and is for that reason that we have different classes and seminars and programs arranged and set up so that we can sit down and discuss the Messenger of Allah have a longer audio system. It is for that reason that scholars have invested so much time authoring books, and writing about this person, whether they are Muslims or even non Muslims. And that shows you the greatness of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In conclusion,

00:18:15--> 00:18:56

truly, we are the ones who are blessed to be from the home of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I've mentioned this before. And it is important for us to reflect over it time and again, that along with the panel, what to add out of his wisdom could have created us at any period of time, in the timeline of human civilization, and we could have been from the different nations of any one of the previous prophets or messengers, but rather it is a source of honor and privilege for us to be from the oma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is the messenger that on the Day of Judgment, when all the other prophets and messengers will be too ashamed to stand before the throne of aloha

00:18:56--> 00:19:38

subhana wa tada and beg Allah subhanaw taala to begin the reckoning, people will be in a state of waiting, but Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will take on that role and will go to the throne of Allah subhana wa tada and praise Allah subhana wa Tada. And Allah will give Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the opportunity to intercede on anyone's behalf that he wishes and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not seize that opportunity to be selfish, or think about himself or his close friends or his close family, but rather he remembers every single one of us, Almighty Almighty, those that came and believed in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even though they

00:19:38--> 00:20:00

did not physically see him in their lifetime with their own eyes, that is you and I, of the of the reference for loving someone of the most basic reasons is that you love someone because they express tremendous amounts of love for you. And surely Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved every single one of us. He told me

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

back to his wife. Isha, he told her, he swore to her that he makes up for everyone in his own in every single one of his Salah, that is love that is concerned. So let us also love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, let us fully believe in him and renew and refresh our belief in our men and our conviction in and in the message that he brought forth. Let us respect to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and let us follow Him and OBEY Him because everything he commanded us to do is for our own benefit. And everything he forbade us from is also for our own protection. barakallahu Li, Li. Whenever anyone here can be my female it was Vicodin hockey, we ask Allah

00:20:42--> 00:21:17

subhanahu wa tada to grant us the best of this life and the best of the Hereafter, and to protect us from the torment of the Hellfire opener attina Jr. has to feel that he has an joaquina either, but now we ask Allah subhanaw taala to unite us, as he has gathered us here to unite us with our beloved messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the highest levels of infinitives and Allah by the law in the law, it would have been ideal. Anyway, he tell you the winner and if you will, more can you will, you will come to Allah come to the common law, how the military law can remember Allah subhanho wa Taala He will make mention of you, which could override any I mean he will, he is it
