We praise Allah, we think Allah, for he is the one most entitled of our praise and our gratitude.
We ask Allah to guide us. We ask Allah to forgive us, we ask Allah to protect us. We bear witness that there is absolutely no one worthy to be worshipped except Him alone.
And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his last and final messenger.
Allah commands us in the Quran, to have Taqwa of him to protect ourselves from the punishment of a law
to protect ourselves from doing anything that displeases Allah. And the way we do that, is by obeying Him in that which he commanded, and abstaining from that which he prohibited, that is taqwa.
During our last Juma together,
we spent some time talking about understanding the idea of loving Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. loving our messenger. Why do we love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? And why is that important.
And hopefully, that set the stage for many more conversations that we can have in chat Allahu taala. And of them is what I would like to share with you all today,
which revolves around the rights of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
revoke the rights, the obligations that we have towards the messenger, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Anybody that's important to you, anyone that you love, and you respect and revere, you will treat them in a certain way, you will behave towards them in a particular manner.
You will be very careful about that which they say. You will be very careful about how you act
in response to that which they are telling you to do.
And all of those basic human interactions applied to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well.
After we have understood
that it's important for us to have this attachment to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam let us then go to the next step.
What is our obligation towards the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And what's interesting is the scholars of Islam throughout the centuries, spoke about this topic extensively, and published many great works, detailing just this one topic.
And I omitted the rights that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam deserves, and that we owe him as part of his own as part of his community and those who claim to be his followers. Are they his sold out to a center.
So let us mention a few of those and begin to implement them and put them into practice. So we can be truthful in our allegiance and our attachment to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
the first of which is very simple and very foundational.
And that is healthy to him and he began
to genuinely have faith and conviction in the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as him fulfilling that role.
being sent as a messenger from Allah, with revelation from Allah Subhana tada set as a mercy to
all creation as a guide and as a means for us to obey Allah subhana wa tada to live our life in the best manner possible and to be rewarded by Allah subhanaw taala in the Hereafter, there must be complete and full, amen. belief and conviction that the this individual Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, fulfills this role.
And this first foundational right of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam begins first and foremost in our mindset in our heart, in our attitude towards him and understanding who he is.
But by the way,
there can be no claim in correct truthful belief in Allah, if it is not also accompanied by a belief in Mohammed Salah hundreds of them as the Messenger of Allah.
The to go absolutely hand in hand and cannot be separated.
There can be no claim to accepting and believing in previous prophets and messengers, with the exception and leaving out Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam just as the opposite is also not acceptable either. No one can come and say well I believe in Allah and Mohammed saya sadhana but not the previous messengers. That is an incomplete faith and an unacceptable, clean.
And Allahu Subhana Allah to Allah in the Quran, give us clear,
clear and direct proof for this understanding. Allah subhanaw taala says what if the law homie felt but never been
alone? Subhana Allah says, We took a covenant, a promise, an oath, a contractual agreement with a Navy in all of the messengers
regarding the belief in Mohammed Salah Harrison, let me know
that you believe in the messenger, Mohammed Solaris in them, well, that turns solo now, and that you defend him and abide by his teachings.
And the prophet and Allah subhanaw taala asked the messengers Do you agree
call a Corona, they all agreed to this agreement.
And that's why the little monitor I said, I mentioned in some narrations that if Moosa or if one of the previous messengers had been alive at my time, there would have been no other option for him except to be a believer and a follower of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
Something interesting, Allahu subhana wa Tada. When he tells us about previous messengers in the Quran,
whose people rejected their message. The wording of the Quran is very, very interesting. When Allah talks about that people have no Allah says, Can they bet? Oh, no one?
No one? No.
Kill them at comminution Elmo? celene
jemen Allah says the people of New disbelieved and rejected the messengers, plural.
But we know absolutely that the people have only received as a messenger.
That was their only prophet and messenger that Allah said them. Allah says about the people of Luke can live at home alone when l mursaleen. The people have loads disbelieved and rejected the messengers plural.
A lot tells us about the people of their mood. Their their maybe their messenger will slide. A lot tells us they rejected Elmo, Sally in the messengers we find this mentioned time and time again in the Quran. And this is clear proof that rejection of one messenger is tantamount to rejecting all of them because they are a succession. They all came with the same message from the same source, our Creator Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And so there can be no email in Mohammed Salah Salem, as an exclusive messenger without all of the others and the vice versa. There can be no belief in Allah or in the previous messengers, leaving out Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. What does it mean to have genuine faith and conviction in the Messenger of Allah having that role? The scholars they defined it for us in a very beautiful way, and easy to remember.
They said Shahada to Lisa Annie B nouveau
lmnop Shahada to listen a blue water. What else do all Gina Annie berry salad
What does the ecology nanny What does nickel generally be reality?
Well, tiza mole jawai B awamori. He what the barsana.
They said it begins with
a definitive statement that Muhammad SAW SLM is a Navy is a prophet of Allah.
And then it goes further that there is inner conviction in his message.
We cannot believe in the Messenger of Allah being a prophet. But then when it comes to us receiving his message and his guidelines in his commandments, then there is some doubt regarding that.
And step three,
after there is a statement and there's an internal conviction,
then there are actions
with the limbs that are in agreement with that testimony and that conviction, and there are actions that are in obedience to that which he commanded. So the first one is healthy culture Imani B, to truly and genuinely have conviction in Mohammed Salah Salem as a messenger that is his right upon us. Let me know nebbia
That's number one.
number two is far too Who female umodel
obedience to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with that which he commanded
obedience full obedience to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
about that which he commanded us to do. And that also includes the prohibitions, obedience and the Messenger of Allah in staying away from that which he prohibited.
And there are dozens of verses in the Quran. I don't want to overwhelm you. There are dozens of verses in the Quran. What
to do. If you obey the messenger of Allah, Allah says you will be guided What else? What else?
obey Allah and obey the messenger.
And this has mentioned so many times throughout the whole on
the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave us a beautiful Hadith,
in which he said
kulu Mati. He had hallucinogen netta illman Abba.
He said, everyone from my oma, will intergender
feel so nice.
Everyone in my own mind will enter agenda Illa except, except Who? I don't want to be amongst them. Except Who? except those who refuse to enter.
Except those who refuse. Here's Jenna, go ahead. No, I refuse. No, thank you.
How does that make sense? How could someone be offered an entrance into Ghana, but they voluntarily say You know what? Nothing's
because in the hereafter there is only gender or gender. If you're not in gender. You're in the hellfire. May Allah protect us. Oh, everyone from my own mother messenger says will enter gender except those who refuse a woman yada yada sudama companions were
Who could possibly refuse the prophet SAW Selim said, Man avani the halogen woman aswani. Abba. He who obeys me, will intergender Done deal that's a promise from Allah and His messenger.
And the one who disobeyed me well, that basically means they refused.
Because that's a choice to obey the messenger or not, that's a choice you and I make if we choose to disobey the messenger, essentially, in essence, we are choosing to not go to gender apart and either Elgin woman or assignee for Baba, there is a hadith in Bukhari narrated by the companion jab, it will be Allahu anhu
that informs us of a beautiful event that happened when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was laying down sleeping.
For the hora de Jama to middle America, a group of angels entered upon the prophesied SLM were jealous were in the sea, and they sat by his head as he is sleeping.
And the angels began conversing with one another, beside the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And they said, there is a beautiful method there is a beautiful metaphor and example for this men.
So they asked one another What is this example?
The parable is mythological in Banner darlin wotja lfv Derry, dooba,
in unity Venus firmen a Java dairy the holodeck Academy.
They said the example is someone who built a house.
And there is food prepared very nicely in that house. And a messenger is sent out to invite everyone to come inside the house and eat from this food. So whoever responds to this invitation, they will enter the house and they will eat.
So the angels sent to one another. And we Lula who explained this, this metaphor, explain it to him What if Oh, so that he would understand this metaphor, the Messenger of Allah. So they said, the explanation, that house is Jenna.
The example of that house is Jenna.
The most beautiful place that we can't even imagine, no eye has looked upon. No ear has heard the sounds that come from it. No nose has smelled the beautiful smells of Jenna. Allah has prepared it for the believers to dwell there in for eternity. Hadid ENFP hat abeja
That house is like agenda.
And that which is prepared in the house
is the message that the that Allah has the revelation that Allah has sent. And that messenger that is calling you inside is Mohammed Cyrus Allah. So if you respond to His invitation, you will enter into that house you will eat there and you will enjoy your time.
But if you are invited to come in and you say No thank you, you're not going inside and you're not going to enjoy which is that which is prepared in their
mind apart I need a Belgian woman I assignee.
So that's number two, obeying the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Number three, and we'll conclude here, so it becomes easy for you to digest.
And there will be more to come inshallah, to Allah on this topic. Number three, to do FEMA
to believe the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in that which he came in, informed us about, on behalf of Allah subhanaw taala You see, the messenger is coming with a message from who from Allah.
No messenger ever made up anything from themselves.
I'm reminded of the hadith of Abdullah have no Mo.
This companion Abdullah outsold the Allahu anhu. He said, he said, couldn't to
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, I used to write down everything that I heard from the Messenger of Allah.
Had Turner had any operation angelic intil my people, the people of Polish, many of them were disbelievers, and who were opponents of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam they reprimanded me and they told me, you know, why are you doing this the Messenger of Allah some days he's happy some days he's angry, you can record everything that he says.
So when this reached the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he asked me about the situation and I told him, that I used to write everything and then I stopped because of what's being said to me. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh,
write it down.
For one Levine fcbd I swear by the one
in whose hand has control over my soul in my life.
The Prophet of Allah swears by Allah Maharaja mini Mashallah, in FME Illa haka.
There isn't a single thing that came out of this mouth and he pointed to his mouth, the Messenger of Allah, except that it was truth.
Except that it was true.
And what's amazing is his worst enemies
testified to his truthfulness.
Somebody can come and say, well, all of you you already like Muhammad SAW said him. So of course you're gonna say everything he said is true. his worst enemies, and the people that knew him from childhood. It's one thing to meet someone later on. It's another thing to know them since they were a child, testified that he was the most truthful person
and greater and beyond and above all of that Allah subhana wa tada testified to the truthfulness of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam many times in our culture today and in our methods of studying and learning and the systems of education that we have gone through. We've been taught to be extremely skeptical.
And there is good in that and there is bad in that as well.
There is good in that. And there is bad in that as well.
The problem is,
many times we devote a lot of that skepticism and that energy towards statements of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And we don't devote that same level of skepticism to statements of average human beings
who do not have the standing or the reputation, or the accomplishments
of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. That is unfair, and that is academically dishonest. If we want to be truly academically skeptical for the purpose of seeking truth and validating that, that's fine, but it must be with the right intention. And it must be done so in a manner that is respectful and truly seeking the truth, not trying to follow some fashionable
that is simply interested in stripping the messenger Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam of his authority.
That's not true skepticism. That's called picking and choosing.
That's called picking and choosing and that's unfair to snickle who FEMA and Rob Bay.
We are expected to believe the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam now roast, Be rest assured that there is an entire subject of study, that a person could spend more than a lifetime, exhausting their time and their energy in, in the subject of normal Hadith, in the subject of verifying and understanding
and following the transmission of the statements of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, putting them into historical context,
comparing them to one another. This is a huge ocean of study. We are expected to appreciate that knowledge and that effort and that study. It was not done in vain. It was done to facilitate for us the ability to obey the messenger of Allah subhana wa salatu salam, follow him believe him and that which he said and give him his due rights.
Famous Arabic poet once said
since we talked last time about loving the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam.
And, and that's a topic that many people enjoy. A famous poet he once said to us, Lila enter total Hiroshima, who has Emeryville trc by De
Luca Luca Sadiq Khan, Locanda boo Casa de la Parra to who in El Masri Berryman. You, hey boo, McCleary.
He said, it doesn't make sense to me that someone claims to love a lot, but yet they are disobeying him. He said, I don't get that kind of analogy. That's not some next level behavior logic that doesn't make any sense
is that if you were really truthful in that emotion and that attachment of love? Well, the law of life is that the one who loves another is obedient towards them.
Allah subhanaw taala grant is still faith to follow the messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. To believe him to have full Eman and conviction in Him as our messenger to obey the messenger of Allah and to follow his example only had our stock for the lady with a commonly cited Muslim equilibrium investor in the who will follow him repent to Allah for he is the most forgiving, Most Merciful.
hamdu lillahi wa hinda Muslim salatu salam ala Milena be about the alarm or suddenly are suddenly more and more Vedic and sad. You know, have you been at Mohammed early? He will be He will send them into Sleeman kathira we have begun a discussion about your book, wouldn't it be sorry send them the rights of the Messenger of Allah upon us, after we have understood and affirmed and internalized the importance of loving the Messenger of Allah, and why it's essential for our success and our health, not only
in this life, but in the hereafter. Now we now turn our attention towards what do we owe the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, what are his rights upon us? We all love to speak against oppression and everyone hates oppression it's very ugly. By definition, oppression is to take away someone else's rights or to not deliver to them the rights that they are deserving of.
So let us not wrong ourselves, let us not wrong our messenger and let us give him his
writes, let us deliver to the messenger that which he deserves from us. Before we conclude, keep in mind a few important announcements. first of which is that the times for Salatu ledger and acid will be changing this Sunday, it will be at 545. And also it will be at 330. Shallow to add that tonight we have our family Friday program. And we will be continuing part two of our year long series on a Shema in the description of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If we really want to follow the messenger of Allah, maybe we can begin by understanding who he was, what, how he carried himself and what was his demeanor. And so we will have part two of that discussion tonight inshallah Tada, after
a shot that begins at 730, he has at 730. Every Wednesday night, there is a class here at msgid. You might know about it. So this would be a good reminder or you might not know. So be informed every Wednesday night there is a class on jurisprudence 101, taught by Sheikh Mohammed 50, and she had Jimmy wisata an introduction to understanding Islamic jurisprudence and law.

And I remember just from a few years ago, until today, the population has drastically exponentially increased. And anybody who's driven up and down the 57, you would have seen all of the different encampments that had to have been erected. And so this is a condition that's growing. Obviously, there are many reasons behind it. The idea is we are expected to be a community that makes a positive impact where we are. And if all we can do is just come together and share nice words. Well that's nice, but that's all it is. It's just nice and it ends there. But the profits little longer anyway said I'm taught us to be people of service. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught us to be
people who care and are concerned about the well being of others. And so please be passionate about this project and all other similar projects.
