For in US Isabelle Howdy, Nicola Mala here as well. Hi, Erin. Had you had you Mohamed in Salalah. While he was early he was selling them was Shavon moving data to Wakulla Mahadeva in vida, what could be the attune Bala Wakulla. Bala team for now. All praise is due to Allah. We praise Him we seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves, and the evil consequences of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray and whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, Nan can guide I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship, none worthy of our ultimate love and devotion, but the Almighty Allah alone, and I bear

00:02:17--> 00:03:04

witness that Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him his his servant and His Messenger or you who believe, fear Allah as you should be feared and die not except in a state of submission to your Lord as Muslims, or mankind. be dutiful to your Lord who created you from a single person, and from him he created his wife, and from them both he created many men and women, and fear Allah through whom you demand your mutual rights and observe the rights of your kin. Surely Allah is Ever and all watched over you, or you who believe. Keep your duty to Allah fear him and speak the truth. He will direct you to righteous deeds and will forgive your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger

00:03:04--> 00:03:28

has indeed attained a great achievement. The best words are those of Allah. And the best guidance is that all Muhammad upon whom the peace and the worst things in the religion are the newly invented matters for all the newly invented matters in religion are considered an innovation and bid and every bidder is misguidance and it leads to the hellfire.

00:03:31--> 00:03:33

Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran

00:03:35--> 00:03:42

lapada kumara Shulam Minh fusi calm as he is on Ali Hema, and

00:03:43--> 00:03:48

Harry son Ali Khan. Bill mini nada over Rahim,

00:03:50--> 00:03:54

a messenger has been sent to you from amongst yourselves

00:03:56--> 00:03:57

as he is on a Lima and

00:03:59--> 00:04:02

the things that put you in hardship and in pain

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

are things that

00:04:06--> 00:04:16

he tries to avoid. It pains him. It bothers him that you are put under hardship or in pain.

00:04:17--> 00:04:28

How do you soon Alikum he's so keen to bring the benefit to you. He's so keen to give you the best he cares about you. Believe me not all for Rahim.

00:04:29--> 00:04:34

And towards the believers, he is merciful and loving.

00:04:35--> 00:04:53

And that's Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Ali he was the chosen one who was chosen by Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to convey the message to humanity. And that's a huge responsibility because conveying the message is not merely conveying the words of Allah

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

by words it's a matter of full day

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


00:05:01--> 00:05:12

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the perfect embodiment of Islam. And thus he was a role model. He conveyed the message in his speech, and in his actions.

00:05:13--> 00:05:23

He conveyed the message in his inner state, and his in his outward actions. He was a complete manifestation of Islam.

00:05:25--> 00:05:49

And that's why he was chosen by Allah subhanaw taala for this tremendous undertaking, of conveying the divine divine message to humanity, to awaken them to death to their reality, to bring them back to Allah subhanho wa Taala to open the eyes and inspire their hearts, to connect to the Lord and be true to him.

00:05:50--> 00:06:42

And to live meaningful lives. When they fulfill the purpose behind their creation, they remain true to themselves, true to Allah. And this required a very powerful mode of delivery. And Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the one to be chosen for this because he was the only one that Allah enabled to be a clear reflection of what Islam really is. And this is why when his wife probably Allahu anha, Isha was asked about his demeanor about his character, how did he apply himself she said, can a holo over Quran she said, his demeanor, his character, was the Quran. The Quran manifested, the Quran acted out the Quran brought into human form that was the Prophet

00:06:42--> 00:06:44

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:06:46--> 00:07:04

And because he fulfilled the message in full towards the end of his life, during the Farewell Pilgrimage had Jitan Wada, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, upon giving the hotbar upon conveying the message, when about 100,000 people gathered

00:07:05--> 00:07:31

during that year for pilgrimage, the Prophet sallallahu only he was sending them turns to Allah Subhan Allah to Allah, and he says, Allah and beloved, Allah had been left did I not convey the message did not did I not fulfill my task? Allah whom my fish had Allah Hama fish had along hola for shed or Allah be my witness, be my witness, and he died a couple of months after that.

00:07:32--> 00:08:20

So he fulfilled the message. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has sent him to a week in our hearts that would be absorbed in the dunya and our eyes that would be blinded by the pleasures of his life. He said the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to show us the path so that Shavon does not take his captive and lead us to the hellfire. The Prophet sallallahu sallam was sent in a rescue mission to save us from the hellfire. And he said in a hadith, he gave an analogy to the Companions because one day they were together at night, and they lit a fire. And you know, when when you light a fire, in the in the wild or in the woods, you see flies, jumping, coming to the fire and jumping

00:08:20--> 00:08:32

into the fire, they come to the light, they come to the womb. So the flies started flocking into the fire and the Prophet SAW Selim said, Don't you see these flies how they throw themselves in the fire?

00:08:34--> 00:08:36

The Prophet sallallahu sallam said,

00:08:37--> 00:08:49

in the mammoth anyone with a LUCAM Cara Julian Oh, Adana, Allah. The example of me with you is just like a man who lit a fire and the flies started running into it.

00:08:51--> 00:09:09

When he said we're in the air for you don't be Hijazi come, a hose will come in and now I am holding on I'm holding on to your waistbands. I'm holding on to you not to let you jump in the hellfire. That's Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu I knew he was in.

00:09:13--> 00:09:27

And he was granted an answer from Allah Subhan Allah Allah said, Make dua and I will grant it to you the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam kept it to himself for the day of judgment so that he could make dua for his ummah

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

and the Prophet himself. So Selim says in an authentic hadith, that the people in on the Day of Judgment when people are resurrected, they come out of their graves. People stand up, and the sun is so close to their heads that people are drowning in their sweat. And this would last for 1000s of years. People are waiting for the account to start. People are clueless. They don't know what to expect. The waiting and anticipation and

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

Nothing is happening. And they are fearful of the fire. They are fearful of their feet and of their final destination.

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

And in this anticipation and in this pain,

00:10:13--> 00:10:55

they start running to one prophet after the other. They go to Adam and Islam and he says, I've sinned, I committed a sin, and I can't talk to Allah subhanaw taala can't intercede with Allah subhanaw taala go to someone else. They go to Prophet know Halley's Santa and they say to him, You are the first messenger that Allah sent to humanity in to see, make DRA call upon Allah. So he just starts the sab the accounts, let's just know what's going on. And he says, I can't go to someone else. They go to Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam, and he says, go to someone else. They go to Musa Ali, he said, and he says, I can't do anything. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is angry today that I've

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

never seen before.

00:10:59--> 00:11:03

They go go to a Saturday, he said and he says go to some go to Mohamed.

00:11:04--> 00:11:10

They go to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he says no, he says I am for him. I'll take that on.

00:11:12--> 00:11:29

So he prostrates and he calls upon Allah subhanaw taala. And he says in the Hadith for youth, who either give me that in the hammy the man and move to Allah, Yemen, Kabul, ALLAH inspires him with ways of praising Allah calling upon Allah. Then Allah subhanaw taala says to him, lift your head,

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

and your due out will be answered.

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

And he would say, Oh Allah,

00:11:36--> 00:11:40

take care of my Alma take care of my people.

00:11:41--> 00:12:23

Another Hadith from the prophets, I send them that shows how he cared for he, he was so selfless, he realized the essence of his mission. It was about opening our eyes, awakening our hearts to understand what life is really about not to be distracted by the details, and the attractions and the traps in this life, to make sure that we remain on course, to make sure that we never lose sight of the reality of what this life means not to be lost in the details to know that this is a test and we are supposed to make our way back to Allah subhanaw taala make it back to Allah save intact

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

so that we are admitted into paradise.

00:12:28--> 00:12:32

So the prophets are themselves in a hadith that is narrated by anisul nomadic Radi Allahu Allah.

00:12:35--> 00:12:42

He says kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the a woman tangible or bland, Zhang Giamatti, Yeoman Tiana. Well, I forgot.

00:12:43--> 00:12:51

I am the first man to raise his hand from the earth on the Day of Judgment, the first one to be resurrected.

00:12:55--> 00:13:04

What Oh, God Liwa unhemmed do multi Amity? Well, Africa and I've given the flag of praise, praising Allah on the Day of Judgment.

00:13:06--> 00:13:23

When I say you do, what are the bene Dharma yoga, Dr. Murthy? Well, Africa and I am the master the king of humanity on the day of judgment, and he says it's not something that I attribute to myself it's a privilege from Allah well

00:13:26--> 00:13:35

what enter a woman your whole genitalia woman Dr. Matilda for her and I am the first to enter paradise

00:13:37--> 00:13:38

as a gift from Allah.

00:13:42--> 00:13:51

So when people are in distress on the day of judgment, and the Prophet SAW Salem enters paradise, what is he going to do? What would they what would he be thinking about?

00:13:53--> 00:14:03

The Prophet SAW Selim says we're in the de bourbon Jannetty for earthwood will be held Katya and I approached the gate of paradise and I hold on to the ring.

00:14:05--> 00:14:13

For your Boulogne and Heather, the angels will say Who's this for Abu Mohammed. For up to Holy.

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

I say I am Mohammed the gate opens

00:14:18--> 00:14:30

for and hello Legion. netofa Eden and Jeff Bell almost off the bat. I enter pero paradise and I find myself in the presence of the Almighty for us judo.

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

I prostrate before him

00:14:35--> 00:14:35


00:14:37--> 00:14:38

a sec.

00:14:40--> 00:14:55

To condemn you smack mink Wakulla yoke burning watch factory chef. Allah would say oh Mohammed Raise your head. Speak it will be accepted. See and it will be granted and to see that you will be given.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

What do you think Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam is going to see in that time

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

He says, For Appu Mati, Mati y'all up.

00:15:06--> 00:15:16

So he says, I say, oh my lord or Allah, my nation, my people, my people save them. That's what the prophesized numbers.

00:15:18--> 00:15:26

And that's why we love the prophets of Allah, Allah, because Allah sent him to save us. And he embodies this mission selflessly.

00:15:29--> 00:15:30

So Allah says,

00:15:32--> 00:15:46

in the MBR, Mohammed, feminine Majid Clement O Matic, if you obey me follow me myth Carlo. headbutting means you're a criminal, amen. Hello, Jana. Go and whoever among your nation that you find in their heart

00:15:48--> 00:15:56

an amount of Eman that is equal to agreeing bring them into agenda. And this will happen a few times a few times.

00:15:59--> 00:16:03

And the Prophet sallallahu it was send them one day he was with his companions and he said

00:16:04--> 00:16:06

Leith any ally Kalani.

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

I wish that I could see my brothers for Carlos Sahaba to our Lisa, our listener one okay. Rasool Allah, Carla and Thomas hubby.

00:16:17--> 00:16:38

He said, The companion said unto me your brother's or messenger of Allah, he was longing to see his brothers. The Companions say, aren't we your brothers? The prophets I seldom said You are my companions. Well, I can I say one in Levina will be when you're what do I have your home now we are on even FC one a day.

00:16:39--> 00:16:54

But my brothers are the ones who would believe in me without having seen me. One of them wishes to see me one of them would sacrifice themself, their family, their belongings, just to see me.

00:16:56--> 00:17:08

This is not an empty love. This is not some kind of a forced love, hate, love the prophets. I send them why because he's the Prophet. That's an understanding of metal Allahu alayhi wa sallam once.

00:17:10--> 00:17:21

He was chosen by Allah to save us to show us the path, and he would be the best to show the path in words and action and see and lifestyle.

00:17:23--> 00:17:30

And that's why it's important for us Muslims, not to take the life of the prophets, Allah senemo his example as mere decoration.

00:17:32--> 00:17:35

Have we studied his life, not as

00:17:37--> 00:17:40

a man of history, or a historical figure,

00:17:42--> 00:17:50

but as an embodiment of what humanity really means, what morality really means of what piety really means.

00:17:52--> 00:18:01

What steadfastness really means of what courage really means, what generosity really means. What to be a good, complete human being.

00:18:03--> 00:18:11

That's his right upon us. And that's a part of that's part of our safety. Because we learn from that example.

00:18:13--> 00:18:37

It is not like we have a figure and we worship Him, we only worship Allah subhanho wa taala. And the reason we love the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu Salam, because Allah loves him, because Allah chose him to guide us because He is the bridge between us and Allah. He's the path he clarified the path that we take his sunnah. We live according to it, we learn it, we embody it.

00:18:38--> 00:18:39

We don't abuse it.

00:18:41--> 00:18:49

We take his life as an inspiration. We learn from the beauty of his character from his selflessness from his devotion.

00:18:51--> 00:18:53

From the beautiful example, he said

00:18:55--> 00:19:16

so he's a way for us. He's an example for us, a role model for us to live according to not in a dry fashion we are supposed to follow the Prophet SAW Salem externally and internally, many people pick and choose certain things from the life or the Sunnah of the prophets, I send them and they say back the Sunnah according to their narrow minds.

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

And they start

00:19:21--> 00:19:29

creating wars disputes, based on their limited understanding of the way of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam.

00:19:31--> 00:19:43

Open up your heart, open up your mind to his life, learn from the beauty of his character, learn from his sincerity, learn from his generosity, his forbearing character, His forgiveness,

00:19:45--> 00:19:54

his capacity to transcend the limitation of the human condition. That's what we need to learn. That's what we need to embody.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

We love him because he's the one

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

Oh showed us he's the one who demonstrated to us what his life really means and how we are supposed to approach it. And he said a human example for us to follow.

00:20:13--> 00:20:18

That's why we love him. Because your reason because he brings us to Allah.

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

He opens the path to Allah.

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

So we ought,

00:20:25--> 00:20:35

just as He selflessly with full devotion conveyed his message, there's an equal obligation upon us to reciprocate, reciprocate by

00:20:36--> 00:20:43

opening our hearts to his message, reached the highest level of devotion that we can

00:20:44--> 00:20:55

in studying his life and his sunnah and his example, and following it, being inspired by it, digging out the treasures that are latent in it.

00:20:58--> 00:21:04

That's how we celebrate Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. That's how we love Him

00:21:07--> 00:21:17

by following his example, by making his life and his example, alive and present in our lives, that's how it was B is not a historical figure.

00:21:19--> 00:21:24

Not God cannula comfier. Rasulillah, he was what on Hassan Lehmann, can I Abdullah Ali Ahmed.

00:21:25--> 00:21:40

Indeed, in the Messenger of Allah, there is a great example. There's the best example. For those who seek ALLAH on the Day of Judgment, those who know what the right direction is a good only guy that was stuck for a while they were looking for stuff.

00:21:49--> 00:22:20

hamdulillah Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayidina. Muhammad was early, he was happy in what they do. It's important for a Muslim on that as we draw our identity these days, when there is a lot of negative influence that is directed at us from every direction. And at so many levels, that we know the sources of our identity, we embrace them, and we blow the life of interest into them.

00:22:21--> 00:22:31

The example of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is not something to remain in the books, although the books carry that example, from one generation to the other.

00:22:32--> 00:22:50

But it's important for us to draw on the example, the dynamic example of the prophets of Allah when he was in them, that is a perfect embodiment of what it means to live a meaningful life, a life of a mission, a life of morals, a life of good character, and a life of achievement,

00:22:52--> 00:22:56

and a life of sincerity. So it's important to keep that example alive.

00:22:57--> 00:23:23

And to realize that those who understand the points of strength among this ummah, they seek to attack those sources. And it's important for our younger generation, and for parents to keep that in mind, that the younger generation gets to know the pure example of the Prophet sallallahu. He was sending them first and foremost by holding on to the Quran, to the book that he was sent to convey

00:23:24--> 00:23:47

by teaching our kids the Quran, not as a textbook, not as a book merely to memorize, but a book to live by a book of Wisdom, a book that demystifies the reality of life for us. And that informs us how to deal with life how to handle the predicament

00:23:48--> 00:23:51

of this huge responsibility called life.

00:23:55--> 00:24:13

So we need to carry the Amanar of the prophets of Allah we send them, then studies life, learn his life and seek ways to see how his example applies to our times, and to transcend the peculiarities of each specific era.

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

And there is no shortage One of the blessings of today in terms of technology are the huge amount of information that is available at our fingertips.

00:24:25--> 00:24:30

There's a lot of theories online, and the life of the prophets of Allah is an authentic series.

00:24:32--> 00:24:59

And I've seen from some brothers and some families here that they have been watching this, they've made it a point once or twice a week that they would sit together and as a family, watch, for example, one episode about the life of the prophet Sallallahu Sallam and they would do this over a period of one year, two years, etc. That wouldn't be a great thing to do and then they would discuss it among themselves. What a beautiful tradition. What a beautiful example and gift you offer to your kids and to your family.

00:25:04--> 00:25:17

So that's our responsibility. We are a nation that has a rich treasure and legacy yet, we don't seem to be embracing it, we don't seem to be holding it in honor and dignity.

00:25:19--> 00:25:24

We trying to run after false empty examples, modern examples.

00:25:28--> 00:26:13

So we fail to appreciate what we already have, how rich the life and the example of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is. So that's a moral obligation upon us. And we miss out big time. If we don't appreciate, if we don't really value what we have, if we are unable to dig out the treasures that are so helpful, that are so practical, that we die on the need and humanity needs Allah Subhana Allah describes the Prophet SAW Selim says, When my son came home attended, I mean, we sent you but mercy, that's that's what you are. That's your definition of mercy to mankind. You are a mercy source of mercy. Because this life is about what is about worshiping Allah remaining true to him. If

00:26:13--> 00:26:17

you don't do that, you have brought all evil to yourself.

00:26:19--> 00:26:28

So the Prophet SAW Selim, his mission is about showing you the path. So you save yourself from the hellfire, you remain true to Allah and to your creation.

00:26:29--> 00:26:36

So that's why he's mercy. And it's your choice to accept that mercy and that in all say no to it.

00:26:40--> 00:26:48

That's where we draw our identity. These are our roots, the beautiful, noble noble roots and those who try to just

00:26:49--> 00:26:55

slip slander, the prophets I send them all depict him in bad light and evil light, it's their ability.

00:26:56--> 00:27:04

It's their inability to see goodness, virtue thrive. So they fight against it, and they will be the losers.

00:27:06--> 00:27:12

against Allah, you can't win. You can't win against the truth, no one wins against the truth.

00:27:14--> 00:27:17

The point will come where you will lose the battle if you're against the truth.

00:27:19--> 00:28:01

So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us appreciate and value the example of the prophets of Allah when he was sending them and deliver according to it. And one final point, you know, every year the you can can see the wars taking place on social media and in gatherings to celebrate the birthday of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or not. Now, I would say leave this to the scholars. If you are not a qualified scholar, don't get into these arguments. Don't get into these arguments. Yes, there is right and wrong. There really is. But most of the engagement that the Muslim public is doing in this regards, is just adding fuel to the fire and it's dividing the Muslims. It's creating discord, and

00:28:01--> 00:28:11

people are wrapping their identity around, celebrate or not celebrate, leave it as a matter of discussion among the scholars and scholars will be able to handle it.

00:28:13--> 00:28:20

If someone disagree with you, leave them if you're not qualified to reach that level of discussion, if that's going to bring enmity.

00:28:25--> 00:28:29

We celebrate the birthday of the prophets of salaam byes by following his example.

00:28:31--> 00:28:41
