I'm a Muslim. It's an honor to worship

00:00:02 --> 00:00:05

Allah alone. Because that's the primary teaching of

00:00:05 --> 00:00:08

my faith. To worship my maker alone. It's

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

an honor to be following Muhammad sallallahu alaihi

00:00:11 --> 00:00:13

wasallam. You and I know people call him

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

names.

00:00:14 --> 00:00:16

They call him names from the beginning.

00:00:17 --> 00:00:19

As soon he came up to say, I'm

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

the prophet of Allah to warn you about

00:00:21 --> 00:00:23

a day that is going to come when

00:00:23 --> 00:00:25

you have to answer for your deeds. What

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

happened? They said, you're a liar.

00:00:29 --> 00:00:31

You know the famous statement of Abu Lahab

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

and what he said and verses that were

00:00:33 --> 00:00:35

revealed. The whole surah revealed.

00:00:36 --> 00:00:38

What was this all about? It was about

00:00:38 --> 00:00:41

how even the relatives of the prophet Muhammad,

00:00:41 --> 00:00:42

peace be upon him,

00:00:43 --> 00:00:46

happened to say things against him the minute

00:00:46 --> 00:00:48

they realized, you know what? This man

00:00:49 --> 00:00:52

has spoken the truth, but by us accepting

00:00:52 --> 00:00:54

what he's saying, we're going to lose a

00:00:54 --> 00:00:56

little bit of the worldly stuff that we

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

have. Be it wealth or authority, whatever else

00:00:59 --> 00:01:01

it may be. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa

00:01:01 --> 00:01:03

sallam continued in the mission.

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

They spoke against him and they spoke about

00:01:06 --> 00:01:09

him, but those who knew him the most

00:01:09 --> 00:01:12

and the closest, closest, they all accepted the

00:01:12 --> 00:01:13

message.

00:01:13 --> 00:01:14

His circle of friends

00:01:15 --> 00:01:17

immediately accepted this message.

00:01:17 --> 00:01:20

Who was the closest to him before Islam?

00:01:20 --> 00:01:22

Was it not Abu Bakr as Siddiq Was

00:01:23 --> 00:01:24

he not the first from among the men

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

who accepted the message?

00:01:26 --> 00:01:28

Because he knows this is my friend. He's

00:01:28 --> 00:01:29

not a liar.

00:01:29 --> 00:01:31

He's speaking the truth. It's an honor for

00:01:31 --> 00:01:34

you and I to come 1400 years

00:01:34 --> 00:01:36

later and say, I swear by Allah, the

00:01:36 --> 00:01:37

man was truthful.

00:01:51 --> 00:01:52

I bear witness

00:01:53 --> 00:01:55

that you have fulfilled the message, O Muhammad

00:01:55 --> 00:01:57

sallallahu alaihi wasallam.

00:01:58 --> 00:02:00

You have conveyed it. You have struggled in

00:02:00 --> 00:02:02

the cause of Allah. You have been upright

00:02:02 --> 00:02:03

and honest.

00:02:04 --> 00:02:06

Really we ask Allah to reward you on

00:02:06 --> 00:02:08

behalf of all of us as the Ummah.

00:02:09 --> 00:02:12

May Allah Almighty gather us with Nabi Muhammad

00:02:12 --> 00:02:13

salallahu alayhi wa sallam in the hereafter.

00:02:14 --> 00:02:16

It's an honor to follow such a great

00:02:16 --> 00:02:19

man and when people say negatives about him,

00:02:19 --> 00:02:21

I'm a Muslim, so I'm going to stand

00:02:21 --> 00:02:23

up. What am I going to do? I'm

00:02:23 --> 00:02:26

going to think about ways to educate them.

00:02:26 --> 00:02:29

I'm going to think about ways to stop

00:02:29 --> 00:02:31

it. I'm going to think about ways to

00:02:31 --> 00:02:34

come up and teach because at that moment

00:02:34 --> 00:02:37

there are 1,000 if not 1,000,000 who are

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

watching what the negative

00:02:39 --> 00:02:42

that was said was, and what the positives

00:02:42 --> 00:02:43

that come out

00:02:44 --> 00:02:44

of us are.

00:02:45 --> 00:02:48

And they then fall either on that side

00:02:48 --> 00:02:48

or this side.
