Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah here.
smilla rahmanir rahim In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala Most Gracious, Most Merciful Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah mean, All praise is indeed due to Allah subhanho wa Taala Lord of the worlds, or Salatu was Salam O Allah Ashraf himself pH Imani Mohammed.
He was happy he married. We send complete blessings and salutations upon the master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the best of creation, the most noble of all prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless his entire household, all his family members, all his companions, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them all. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless every single one of us. I mean, my brothers and sisters, if I were to ask you a question, Who do you love the most? as a Muslim, they cannot be more than one answer.
As a Muslim, they cannot be more than one answer. If I were to ask you, who do you love the most? You cannot say my father, my mother, my son, my uncle, my aunt, my business my wealth. You cannot say my holiday my this and my that no, there is only one answer Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says law you know
none of you are considered true believers.
None of you are considered true believers until had
akuna I have a Li Min of C wala d, d d
none of you are considered true believers. Until I am loved by him or her more than himself more than his child more than his father, and more than all the people in existence.
This is a statement that is a declaration
to explain to us that if you call yourself a movement,
you have to love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than your father more than your child and more than yourself Subhana Allah. So it is impossible to find someone who says Allah Allah illallah wa shadowgun no Mohammed Abu rasuluh I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship besides Allah. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is Abdullah who are Sulu the worship of Allah the slave of Allah the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala like we say afolu silky wa Chroma Bruce Lee of donkey means the highest, the most noble of all the creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala has not created the creature more in terms of status and
in terms of level higher than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam komusubi means the most honored the most noble of all the other messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala whether it be visa alayhis salam, Jesus May peace be upon him. Ibrahim alayhi salatu was salam, salam, Musa alayhis salam, these were very famous prophets of Allah. They were very high in red, but not as high as Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we have in existence the deity deity meaning the Creator, Allah subhanho wa Taala after that, we have Mohammed Salah Allahu Allahu wa sallam. Thereafter, we can talk about what happens and who comes and not and so on. You have the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala you
have the melodica you have so many other of the creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala. No one can come as high in rank as Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah speaks about the high profits in the barn we are known as guru.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of them. In the Quran, he says
He speaks of the covenant that was taken by the most high in rank of the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he mentions
the five who are the highest in rank, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam Rizal a Salatu was Salam mohalla salam, busara salatu salam, these five are very high in rank but Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
When we say his name, we usually do not say Allah is Allah we say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If I say Isa, I say Allah is Allah, if I say Musa alayhis Salam melas peace be upon him. If I say Ibrahim alayhi salam, if I say Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam so the honor and the dignity given to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by Allah subhanho wa Taala is encapsulated in a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Do you know what he says? Man Salalah alayhi salaatu wa Salaam Allahu alayhi wa, whoever sins blessings and salutations upon me one time. Allah blesses him 10 times as a result of that, you need to notice. So if I say suddenly Allahu alayhi wa sallam, in
actual fact, I am honored to be saying that I am honored to be amongst the oma of the same Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam I am talking about in order for me to get small value based on my connection with one who has the highest value.
If you know the president of a nation, and you are seen to be talking about him,
it is one thing people might not believe you. Everyone says I know the President. I know him. I know him. They say he's a friend of mine. I know him. But when you receive
the president speaking about you, then it is something when you receive someone even higher speaking about you, then they say no, no, this man is not like he has a high right. So Allah says when you say you have a connection with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we want to tell you that we confer upon you a connection 10 times stronger. masala Allah sallallahu alayhi wa, whoever sends blessings and salutations, we call it durood Sharif, whoever sends blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, once Allah multiplies that in reward by 10 and gives it back to you. So if you want to honor and dignity, you need to send more and more blessings and
salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, you want to know who has the greatest rights, to my companionship on the Day of Judgment, who will be closest to me? from amongst you, whoever sends the most blessings and salutations upon me a couple consolata
from amongst you, whoever sends more blessings and salutations upon me so my beloved brothers and sisters, keep your tongue and your heart moist with remembrance of Allah and salutations to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam salallahu alayhi wa sallam One day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was climbing on the member and the companions heard him saying I mean, he went up again another step, I mean, he said I mean three times. So they asked him or messenger sallallahu wasallam We heard you say, mean thrice, what was the amin all about? You want to know. Today for example, if the Imam was a traveler, and he happened to make to record, it is good for you to know the ruling.
It is good for you to know the ruling that if the Imam reads too because he is on the journey, then you can get up and complete the other two because you are not on a journey. I remember one young boy
he told me I read inshallah, but I will only be two to two I said why two two is for a journey for a traveler. He said if you are the one who told us why we are in the dunya we are just travelers.
So I had to explain to him in more detail to say no, no, no, there are some big rules. You know, when we say traveler we are not meaning that we are traveler Mousavi in the dunya because we are
All travelers in this world, isn't it that he says, You live in the world like you are configured to
live your life in the world as though you are a stranger or a traveler. So the young boy says, I'm a traveler, I will just leave solid all the time. We said no. It's a different explanation. So, the man, when he does something, it's interesting for you to know why, and to know the ruling.
You learn a lesson. And if you don't know you ask, so when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Who is
he is the Imam of the month.
He Subhan Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked why you said I mean, so he said gibreel Ali Salam came, and he made three to three to us. And I said amin to those drugs.
Now, if you and I were there, we want to know, what is the duality. And you know, man is such that he's very inquisitive, very, very inquisitive. There was once a scholar, who was speaking about how inquisitive men is that men is, he cannot sleep until he knows what he wants to know. So one of the young men, he was a student, he said, No, no, no, I am not impatient. If you tell me, I don't need to know. So this chef, he said, No, I tell you, all human beings, up to a certain point, they want to know something up to a certain point they want to know it is the nature of men. Allah has made you in such a way that you question you ask, and it's not wrong to ask you asked with respect. I
want to know please, please explain to me, I don't mean to be bad, but tell me I want to understand, because you have a mind. So you understand. So the shares, gave this student one box and told him this box. It has in it something it has in it something
don't look inside, I want you to go and deliver it to this address.
He gave him one address, which was one kilometer away. He said go by foot. Now by foot, one kilometer takes long, you know, maybe it will take half an hour to go if you are walking. So this man he went the students.
So he said, No, I don't want to know what is in the box. My chef told me my pasta. My teacher told me that I must not look in I don't want to know palace and gone. He walked in, he went to the door. He knocked on the door, no one open. He knocked on the door and open. He waited for half an hour, one hour, no one open. He came back with the box. Chef said look, you can go back again tomorrow, no problem. So when he's working with the box, he's getting us out
in the box,
in the box, like something is moving. He wants to know now in his mind, he's being strong. Because he was told that you know, I don't need to know what is inside there is being strong. But Subhanallah next day. He said, I wonder what is in this box. I really wonder what is in the box. So his teacher told him Look, go back. It is a mana. It is a mana, go and deliver it. He went back is today Not again. No one was opening.
So as he is walking home now the second day, he's thinking to himself, I wonder what's inside here. Maybe something important? Maybe there's something urgent, maybe there is something you know, so he decided to open
crack on the box to see what is inside. And as he opened, there was a small rat, which ran out of the box and it was gone. Small mouse, you know, like a rat rodent. When he said Oh, what did I do? He went back to his study says, You know what? What was in the box was a small rodent. He ran away. The chef said, You see, I told you men is inquisitive. He wants to know everything so much that even if it is damaged and gone, he still wants to know what is it inside. So the point I'm raising is it's not wrong to want to know you shouldn't want to know but with respect, you can ask, you can ask Look, I really need to know this I need to know that you will be told.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked what was the amine all about? He said to us? And I said, I mean so what were the do ask so he said, The do as well as follows. One of the DA was what you don't limit at the Raka Ravana phylum eufaula
destruction be upon the one who witnesses the month of Ramadan and still did not achieve the forgiveness of Allah.
So he said, I mean, I mean, meaning Yes, I mean, it's the GBR. agreeing with the draft.
What that means is Ramadan is a month of forgiveness. Forgiveness is everywhere you look to the left forgiveness, you look to the right forgiveness, you look in the front forgiveness, you look up forgiveness, you look behind you forgiveness, Ramadan is a month of forgiveness, it is on sale. Literally you are getting it for very small things. You just say Allah forgive me, Allah says you are forgiven, that is the month of Ramadan. So how can you pass the month of forgiveness and not achieve forgiveness you are you are destroying yourself. Second to our
destruction be among the one
room Allah has allowed to witness one or two of their parents in old age, and they still did not result in entry into Jannah of that particular person. What that means is, if you are growing old, and Allah gave you the chance to serve your mother or your father, one or two of them,
then you should enter Jannah through the service of your parents.
You should intergender through the service of your parents, someone might say, but my mother is very rough with my wife, how can I serve? While loving your problem is something else. Your mother's problem with your wife is something else, you will still respect her and you will still fulfill her needs. You will look after her She is your mother. Respectfully you will tell her my beloved Mother, I love you so much. You are my mother, you gave birth to me, I make dua for you, please, I beg you to just treat my wife nicely. You can talk to her like that it's not wrong. But with respect, you cannot swear your mother and you cannot shout at her or say to her a bit Aston Villa just because
she has a bad relation with your wife. This is only an example. It is only an example.
But if you want to correct something, she is also a human being. She can also make mistakes. Your test is are you going to respect her or disrespect? That is it.
The third draft that was made
destruction be upon someone who hears the name of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they refuse to say something.
They didn't say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam The answer was Amin. So you and I now realize the value. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If you hear the name Muhammad Rasulullah
you have to say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Don't be shy.
Sometimes people are shy when the lecture starts first time, Mohammed This is Salalah. Second time, third time, fourth time.
fifth time. Don't say if you say why they say too many times in the same lecture.
They can say it 1000 times you repeat it 1000 times no problem. When we say Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the honor is mine. The honor is yours. Because
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam already has the honor.
If you say it, the honor is yours.
If you don't say it, if you don't say it, the destruction is yours. Do you really think it's going to harm Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam if you did not say sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Is it going to harm him? No, it will not harm him.
It will harm you.
So we need to understand this. And this is why.
Like I said, when you are a Muslim, you utter the Shahada. The Shahada is not only a shadow Allah, Allah Allah, no, it's not enough. There's something missing, what is missing? Why shadow, Mohammed Abu rasuluh that is what is missing. You cannot come and just say Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, and you have not uttered Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Now, every Muslim
knows that to enter the fold of Islam. You declare these Shahada, every Muslim knows that in my heart, I love Mohamed Salah.
Every Muslim knows that if I don't love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam more than myself, I cannot call myself a true woman.
So why are the Muslims fighting with each other? That's a question. Why are the Muslims fighting with each other?
The reason we fight with each other is because shavon comes to us to make us fight. We are part of one family
Others, even Blood Brothers, when they are fighting it is shaman. shaman makes you think you know this man is evil. He doesn't love the Prophet. This one here he is evil. He stole my money, this one here, but everyone claims to love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. You know, for example,
you will find that this is an example I'm just thinking of now. They are there is a man with 10 children.
All his children, they say I love We love the Father, our Father, we love him. One man is a doctor. So he makes sure that medicine, everything to do with my father, I make sure it is up to date. I love him. I don't want to see him. I'm a doctor. I have a profession of a doctor. I'm going to serve my father according to what Allah has given me. The second brother, he's a businessman, very wealthy. What does he do? Every month he comes he puts 1 million in the Father's hand. Father says my son, I don't need the money. I'm an old man. Don't worry, you're my father. Keep it I love you. He is showing his love. The other one showed his love by serving through medicine. The other one
showed his love by saving through money. Another one. He he says my father, I don't have medicine. I don't have money. But I want to sleep in the house with you to be able to look after you. My wife will cook for you. Now you and my mother and my family will look after you. I love you and I will drive you wherever you want to go, I will spend time with you. If you want to go somewhere, tell me I will take you if you need something I will do for you. If you want to iron your clothes, I will learn for you. What is he doing? He is serving his father, but in a different way from the other two, and not the Fourth Brother, for example. He is in bed, bedridden, he is sick, he doesn't have
medicine, he doesn't have money, he doesn't have health. So he says my father, I love you so much. I love you so much. But look at me. I am in bed, how I will serve you is my son, my son, he will look after you Subhanallah because I cannot know I have taught my children that is your grandfather look after them. So I have raised my children to respect you and to look after you. Then you have another son, maybe he has absolutely nothing. He's still very young. He says my father, I love you. I will always make dua for you. Every day I raised my hands. And I said Oh Allah look after my father, give him good health. When you take him give him gentlemen to Filipinos. But before you take him give him
good, long, healthy life, make him happy, protect him. I love you my father. Now you tell me which one of the sons does not love the Father?
Which one? Can one see you you don't love the Father. You You don't love the Father. They're all trying in their own way. Each one according to his capacity, according to his understanding each one according to the way he has learned, he has taught. And according to what he is able to do, he is doing his best. Maybe the understanding is a little bit different. I give you another example. If
the Father has a problem with his legs, or his feet, for example, say the same family I'm talking about father has a problem with his feet. So the biggest son is a doctor. He took that father to the podiatrist, you know what is a podiatrist. podiatrist is a specialist of the feet. So they check how you walk, they see the arch, they see everything else. So if he took that father to the podiatrist, for example, and he said, You know what, please take a look at my father's feet. Why is he unable to walk? Why does he have a back pain and so on. So what happened is that particular son, he then looks at the youngest son and he says, Why do you allow your father to walk with slippers when I have
purchased for him shoes which have an arch specially designed for his feet? So you you don't love the Father?
The little son says look, number one is I didn't know what you did. Number two is I thought that it's convenient for father to wear the slippers so that he can walk he can come back with ease rather than bending down and putting the shoes and not why you didn't explain to me if you spoke to me nicely and we spoke to each other correctly we could understand each other.
When there is lack of communication shavon has an opportunity to communicate. Remember that when there is lack of communication shaytan has the opportunity to communicate and shaytans communication is all about division and fighting and creating hatred, animosity, jealousy before you
meet someone you already hate them. Why? Because shaytan was communicating with both. But if you talk to each other, you meet each other you realize Yes, maybe we are different. I'm you might be a doctor, I might be a rich businessman, that one, he might be a powerful person. This one, maybe he's unemployed, but he spends time serving his parents and so on. You know, there is a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam once a man came to him and complaining about his brother.
And he said, You know, I'm a rich man, I'm a businessman. I work hard. I learn, I take money and I spend on my family but my brother, listen carefully to
my brother. He doesn't work. Every time he bada is in the masjid easy bada he's with the Quran. He's doing something and so so now I'm fed up to spend money on him. Every time I give him in the month, so much money, so much money, so much money. I'm looking after him now I am tired. Now I am tired.
Why should I keep on looking after him? You know, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He was so gifted, the most gifted. He just said a few words. Lala can be here.
Maybe because of him. You are getting your risk.
Maybe because you are spending money rates online is giving you more.
The brother was quiet. The story was over Why? He realized. Imagine if you are giving money to an orphanage every month you said I will give 10,000 shillings which I don't think is a lot of money, isn't it?
10 million shillings. Okay. You are giving 10 million shillings every month to the orphanage. Okay.
And you in your heart? You said inshallah I will try my best every month I give Do you know what? That sustenance, that risk is limited for the orphanage. And Allah chose you to give the orphanage. So Allah needs to give you first then it will go to the orphanage you understand. So when you stop to give the orphanage The money will go to the orphanage via someone else. Allah now gives another man but if you continue even if your days are hard, but you continue, let me give let me give let me give. Allah says this worship of mine. I'm going to continue to give them because I know that the reason for that often is I have chosen for it to go through him. Let me give him first then I will
it will go there. So Pamela but men doesn't look at it like this. man thinks you know what? That's my brother. I'm spending money. He's lazy. I don't want a relationship with him. shavon comes and says Yes, he's lazy. Cut your relationship. So we cut but we are part of one family. We are brothers. The same applies in the team. Sometimes we have a bad idea of people because we are different. Well, I there are small differences. Sometimes we make them big by purpose. Intentionally we make them big. Like I was saying every one of us will lie. I promise by Allah. I swear by Allah subhanaw taala every one of us. I know deep down. We all love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam
but we show that love in different ways. Someone might want to dance and they say that is my love. Someone might want to say no, I don't dance that is his love. Someone might want to say you know what? I will read durood like we say Salah
a million times in the week. That is his love. Someone might say I want to grow my beard the big like his that is his love. Someone might say I want to dress like him that is his love. Someone might say I want to follow exactly what if I do something there is no Hadith by my beloved Mohammed. I will not do it. That is his love. Someone might say I want to recite the Quran in the most beautiful way and continue reading that is his love. Someone might say for example, I would like to learn more about his life of Bihar, Allahu alayhi wa sallam so that I can live exactly my whole life like him. That is his love one of the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu. He said when he was going from
Medina to Makkah, he said, I'm going to stop by the tree to urinate. Listen, I'm going to start by setting tree in order to urinate. So they told him why. He said what law he I saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam relieve himself at the same tree. So I'm stopping here to follow him. That is his love. Subhana Allah that is his love. I cannot come and say how can you love through you know relieving yourself at the same position? That is his love, but I cannot claim you don't love you Love Allahu Akbar. Allah
But my brothers and sisters, the oma is suffering because each one is pointing at the other and saying you don't love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we, today's generation, we need to change this. Do you know why? Because the enemies of the oma now they are so happy that they don't need to do anything, they will sit back and just say, these people, they will destroy themselves, we can just sit back and relax. They are fighting amongst each other. They are brothers, they are saying the same Shahada, but because of some small differences here and there, they will kill each other we can go away we can sleep when we wake up, we will find that they are gone.
My brothers and sisters we don't need that. Yes, we try to come as close as possible. greet one another smile at one another make Allah subhanho wa Taala the focal point and the following of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the focal point
and learn to help one another, learn to respect one another. If you have something you want to say see it in a respectful way. Look, brother, I disagree with you. You know you said this. You said that? Is this what you said to start off with? Is this what you said to start off with? And once you hear what they have to say, I give you an example about myself my own example. I am your brother in Islam, Allah He I try my best. And I am also a human, I can make mistakes. I'm not gonna be I am not someone who is infallible. I am just like you. We are normal human beings. We make mistakes, we are corrected and so on and so forth. But sometimes
when you really don't like someone, even what is right, you find the mistake you need. When you don't like an artist, he draws a straight line you will walk and say that line is bent. That line is crooked. Why? Because you don't like him. When you don't like someone you say I don't like this man. Why? Because when he breathes his stomach goes in and out instead of his lungs. What's the point? You are finding a mistake with how the man breathes only because you don't like him? Be careful. You are destroying the oma people said you know this man. He said Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has jealousy, he has hatred, he has enmity and because of that Allah had to wash his heart, all the
Billa May Allah protect us from deti unacceptable statements of this nature? Do you know the context of a statement? Do you know what is being said? Never in my life will I dare to say that the best of creation, the most noble have all messengers, the perfect creature of Allah subhanho wa Taala would have a quality in his heart such as jealousy and hatred and enmity or all the belie if you have understood something that way that understanding is totally wrong and unacceptable. I am clearing it here and now.
Never It is impossible. I am not a Muslim, if I believe that, Allah. But what about millions of times when I said millions of times when I said the best of creation, the most noble the perfect. You didn't hear that? You didn't hear me say that. Why? Because you are deaf. That's why you only want to see how I breathe and you don't like me because my stomach moves when I'm breathing instead of my lungs.
That's it. Destroying the oma for nothing. We are genuinely seriously trying to bring the woman together and people are not looking at that they do not have foresight. They cannot think 50 years today they want to think for five minutes. I want to be famous let me attack a famous man. If that's the story. That's what the kuffaar did to Muhammad Allah.
Please don't do that. Or you're still my brother. You attacked me but you are still my brother. I still love you. You know why? Yes, you attack me But you say the same Shahada I still want you to be in gentlemen.
I still want you to go to Jenga. Jenga is very big. Gender is not small. Remember that with us? Instead of making our logic into genetic into genetic into gender we say this one is Indiana that one is Indiana. These people say those I have to say these are internal. So why did Allah make gender? What is gender default? Well, I gender is broad. You will be surprised to see someone you thought was not going to go to general in general when you go to gender and they will be surprised to see you then you say my brother I love you. Allah I want to say that before I go to gender now in the dunya my brothers I love you.
I want to see everyone in general you can be black and white and region tone and mehman and not mehman and Yemeni or whatever else I want to see you in general will lie
Islam is to remove the Jamia from your heart What is the Jehovah Jehovah is your color I don't like it. Ah you are rich you don't like you are poor I don't like you or this I don't like you or that I don't like that is Jerry Lee. I want to see you in general. May Allah subhanho wa Taala
say Amen. And you know what? When we go to Jana, we say May Allah grant us companionship of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say amen.
We all love him, we want to see him Don't you want to see him? I want to see him. I really want to meet him. You know, there will be some differences in the oma they will remain forever. These differences we will discuss about them sometimes do not become ugly. Do not start accusing people in a dirty way to start saying this one is coffee, that one is coffee. Watch out. Those are strong words very, very strong words. I don't want to risk that my brother that is too strong. I'm telling you from a position of authority that you know what to do after that, that problem does not exist in only one community. It exists in many, many communities. You have on all sides, you have some group
of people always they are so passionate if you greet them as salaam alaikum they answer you in Umar salako Have you heard that? Why for what what is it you are going to get from that? Let me say why a coup Salah What's the problem? May peace be on you may peace be on YouTube? Why should I say a dirty word for what? What did I get from it? I'm a Muslim. I'm supposed to have a good heart. I yes, even that men who is the enemy of Allah I want to see him in general. So let me try to talk to him so that he can become a Muslim when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam may listen to what my beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Omar Allahu anhu before he was an enemy of Islam, a
Pooja was an enemy of Islam, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says Allah.
Allah grande springs to Islam, by the acceptance of Islam, of one of the two rumors. a sham who is a Buddha.
That was the Nabhi of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. No sooner did he make that? Then rumor mill hatami Allahu anhu walks in your rasulillah in Nashua do Allah Allah, Allah, Allah wa
rasuluh Allah, why there was a dua for an enemy of Islam to come into Islam he came in another drop in if you and I know what happened to the most precious droplets of blood ever to be created by Allah. You and I know what happened in life.
It's a story that makes all the Muslims cry, do you agree by the story of life? If you have a man you will cry when you read what happened when you hear what happened in five. What did Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam say when those who did that? The angels in charge of the mountain said we will bring the mountains together and crush them. All we need is one statement from you to instruct That's it? He said Allah they told me for him.
Oh Allah guide my people, they don't know what they are doing. Or Allah guide them.
In another narration, he said, Oh Allah, if you have not written guidance for them, at least from their children, they will be guided what happened. Few Years Later, the whole of life. They are almost made today go to life, they are almost limited, so kind of love. Why? Because the prophets Allah, Allah made dua even for those who are outright enemies to bring them in Islam with us. We take the people who are inside Islam out of Islam.
Look at the opposite. And we we consider it a very great act. It's a great act law. Why this one? My brother, what's the problem being become your heart when you get close to Allah, your heart is soft. You learn to love people, you learn to look at humankind. You know, I want to give you an example. I gave it yesterday, and I've given it before and I will give it many, many times. You know the story of a man who achieved forgiveness by quenching the thirst of a dog when the dog was thirsty, you know of that story, right? There is another story of a woman who was granted Jenna because she was kind to a cat. I'm sure you know the story. My question or my statement is
if a person achieved forgiveness, by being compassionate and kind towards a dog, which is considered a certain type of an animal in Islam, you know that
they achieved forgiveness because they were
Trying to a dog. What do you think a person who is kind to another human being will achieve when man is known as a
man is known as the greatest of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala in terms of species.
Man is biased. Santa Anita when Allah says we created men in the best posture
Subhan Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us love. May Allah open our hearts, may Allah open our relationships with each other. Like I said, you might not be able to resolve some differences within the oma but you can cooperate with one another. You can be you can be mature about it, really. You can be Muslim about it. I'm a Muslim. If I hate on someone, will they listen to me? No. I need to understand no problem. This is an explanation. This is an understanding inshallah I will try my best to bring the people together. My brothers and sisters, the oma is bleeding. We desperately need the oma to be saved. What is happening in Syria? What is happening in Iraq, for example, no human beings
can be happy.
If you are a true human, you cannot be happy. No Muslim can sleep without making to Allah help my brothers and sisters who are suffering. When you read when you see what is happening, you believe it is impossible for someone not to blame, to see children and women and innocent people and to see any form of fighting and killing of human beings. It cannot make a decent person happy. They are not happy. But because maybe sometimes people say this man is a hypocrite. Why didn't he talk about this and that my brother mice? Maybe I am doing more than you about that situation? But you don't know. Do I need to show you what I'm doing? Are you my Allah? You understand? Are you my answerability? Do
I need to answer to you? No, maybe I'm doing more than you. You don't know. I don't need to show you. Does the hottie say talk about it. Put it on Facebook, put it on Instagram. Is that what the hottie said? No. When you do something, you will do it according to how you believe is the best.
I don't need to do it the way you want to do it and you do not need to do it the way I want you to do it. We all need to do it the way Allah once please Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah will be pleased in many, many different ways. I gave you an example. You know, even some people say this man is doing nothing for Islam. Or they look at you they see you have no beard, you're wearing a suit. You're wearing a tie. And they say this man is a weak Muslim. Voila. He you don't know sometimes there is someone with a big beard and they are wearing long robes and contours. And yet they are doing so many other things which are haram and then you might have another person perhaps he wears a
suit when you look at him you think maybe this man is not a good Muslim but he is doing other things which you you never ever did in your life. Maybe he's helping so many orphans and so many widows maybe he's assisting here assisting they're doing this to that is why I say stop judging the people stop it. You are not alone. We need to love one another I love you no matter what I know in your heart. You have a man I know it. And I know that the man will stop you from doing harm at some stage. It will bring you back to Allah.
I know that when you do something wrong in your heart you feel Yeah, Allah helped me I don't know. I regret it. I really regret it. I don't want to do this helped me again. Allah forgive me. That is a sign of Eman. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says he does somewhat kasana to Kawasaki. Gentlemen, when you do good, it makes you happy when you do bad It makes you sad. That is a saying that you are a true Muslim.
Because you know I have a lot to go back to I need to answer to him. My brothers and sisters I have spoken for 45 minutes. I hope and I pray that the words I have said would resound. I have tried to give you examples of how we as an oma, we are all serving Allah we all love Mohammed salatu salam, we will all come together by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala in order to serve Allah, we will have differences like I said, that must not make us kill each other. It must not make us call each other dirty names. It must if anything, it can make us talk about it, we can discuss sometimes we can understand you know I have this difference. I want to end with one example that came to my mind.
You know the Hindus we have many differences with them in terms of belief, but from amongst you here, they are businessmen or there are people who
Work with the Hindus, right? If a Hindu comes into your shop, and he wants to do a business deal with 20 million shillings, what will happen? You will be happy, isn't it because you are making money, see the brothers doing this inshallah it will happen, don't worry, you will get more than 20 million. So you are happy because someone came he's a businessman, but he's a Hindu. But what you will do, you will greet him, you will let him sit, you will do the deal. You will be honest with him. You will serve him correctly in that business. You will give him his goods collect the money and you will say thank you very much and you walk away and you did a business deal. But he's a Hindu
is the deal Allah Allah, Allah. You did the deal. You for what did you cooperate with that man? Why did you cooperate with him? I cooperated with him because of dunia because of money. I cooperated with him. I asked you what is more important Dino do you have to say if you are ready to cooperate with a Hindu because of dunya it is more important to cooperate with the rest of the Muslims because of the
simple logic. My deed is more important than 20 million 200 million 100 million shillings. My thing is more important. I must come I must definitely cooperate with Muslims more for the sake of the deen and even the others, then I would with someone else like this.
I'll handle Alhamdulillah
I'm not saying it's wrong to cooperate with the English No, it's correct. We do and we co exist. That means Look, I'm Dina Kamala Do you have your faith you follow it I have my faith I follow it and hamdulillah that is how we deal with all the non Muslims who are around in our countries here. And that's how it should be we have we have harmony, we have peace we maintain it. We must maintain that harmony and that peace where I get an opportunity for now I will give while I'm doing the business deal with 100 million 200 million with this man I can just give him one CD one book one something say you know my brother, it was good dealing with you. You are brother of mine in
humanity. I just want you to when you get a chance to read this because I want you to understand what I believe better. Thank you very much he might come and give you something and tell you this is my book. This is all about Hindu and you need to read this you take the book and say thank you very much what you do with the book is up to you.
What do you do with the book but I know after some short time you will come back to you. I was reading that book or I was listening I was watching the CD what you gave me and I promise you I learned something hamdulillah thank Allah thank Allah but you fulfill your story. One brother was selling televisions he told me you know TV no problem because they use it for pornography what what I'm selling TV What should I do? I said my brother in every box of TV put a notice to say I am requesting you to use the TV only in that which is beneficial and to abstain from that which is harmful or that which is not allowed or prohibit whatever you want to say. Put it in. If he's a
Muslim, tell him on his face brother. Please use this in a correct way. What did you do? indemnity fellas I told you you are buying this. It's like buying a knife. Please knife only for money challah knife only for good things. Don't go around murdering people please tell us that's what I did. What do you do after that? Between you and Allah me? I informed you. So May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us. My brothers. Islam is a beautiful religion. And it is, according to me, the largest face on Earth,
the largest. The problem is the divisions is where the enemy thrives. They are happy, so happy that don't worry. Like I said at the beginning these people they will sort each other out. We don't need to worry. Today, I have brought a message to you to say change that change that. If you if you have concern for the oma of Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you will understand what I'm saying. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Bless you all Abu Kohli hada Allahumma salli ala nabina Muhammad
