Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:08--> 00:00:35

MashAllah Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah, who Allah, Allah, he was here to my, in my brothers, my sisters, I'm really excited to be here in Malaysia after so many years, you know, we had COVID And subhanAllah. It separated us to a degree. At the same time, we perhaps may have met online in the interim. But we thank Allah for giving us the opportunity to see this day and to interact for his sake.

00:00:37--> 00:00:53

And when I say this, I mean, Allah Almighty, blesses us to meet when we meet, it needs to be meaningful. If there is no meaning to the meeting, then there is no purpose to have met.

00:00:55--> 00:00:56

And this meaning

00:00:59--> 00:01:21

could be, for example, something beneficial to do with a worldly matter, to do with something regarding your health regarding your wealth. But we meet regarding what Allah has kept as the most important issue that we can ever discuss. So thank Allah and congratulating.

00:01:22--> 00:01:29

Secondly, I wish to say congratulations to one and all for having contributed towards the success of this event.

00:01:30--> 00:01:31

Because indeed,

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

without your contribution,

00:01:36--> 00:02:03

it wouldn't have been possible. I always say, consider yourself fortunate to have been able to use your wealth towards a good cause, bearing in mind that when you purchase a ticket, for example, to participate in an event like this, you're actually going to get a reward for everyone who participated because you were a mini sponsor.

00:02:04--> 00:02:05

That's what you weren't.

00:02:06--> 00:02:09

Didn't you contribute? You did?

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

It may have been in a small way, but you did.

00:02:13--> 00:02:23

I tell people who visit the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala on a daily basis, and it should be that we do especially the main focus for us, compulsory

00:02:25--> 00:02:28

that if you were to give an amount of money

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

for each prayer, what would you give?

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

What would you give?

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

I cannot put a price tag to it right?

00:02:42--> 00:03:27

But if I asked you to give one ring, or $1, which is a few ring gauges for every prayer, every time you walk into the masjid, didn't you use the facility didn't you use the water, the lights, the carpet, whatever else it may be, they kept it clean for you. They made sure you went in and you came out you would need to spend five ring dates a day multiplied by 30 days it's such a figure and Subhanallah you gave that amount by the will of Allah subhanahu wa taala you would have contributed towards the upkeep of the house of Allah but more importantly, your own usage was paid by you and not someone else. What's the point of me going to fulfill my duty which is a pillar of Islam a Salah

00:03:28--> 00:03:41

and other people have paid for the electricity other people have paid for the place other people have paid for everything and I'm just coming using facility and moving once in a while put a little bit in the donation box even if it is five minutes, even if it is your loose change.

00:03:44--> 00:04:00

You can perhaps not have the cup of tea Tarik, one of the days and you can continue insha Allah Allah bless you. The same applies I remember and I've started this way it's just an introduction because Insha Allah, we are ahead of schedule and inshallah I will be with you for a long time today inshallah.

00:04:02--> 00:04:16

You might wonder, this is not on the topic, it is everything we say is part of Rasulullah Salah salams teachings, evening that we derived it from the we got it from them, we learnt it somehow from the teachings of the Prophet sallallaahu Selim direct or indirect.

00:04:17--> 00:04:19

You see you when you have a poor person

00:04:20--> 00:04:22

identified by a charity,

00:04:24--> 00:04:27

charitable organization somewhere in Africa

00:04:29--> 00:04:37

and they say there is an issue, for example, in Sudan or in Somalia or wherever it may be. We want you to donate

00:04:40--> 00:04:41

and you give zakat

00:04:43--> 00:04:47

you give 100 being gay, or maybe $50 of Zika

00:04:50--> 00:04:54

What did you do? You click Send you put your card details and the money's gone. Agree?

00:04:55--> 00:04:57

I want to remind you of something.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

My way of doing things

00:05:01--> 00:05:10

Someone is going to carry that amount and take it to that place and meet the poor people and give them nitrate agree

00:05:11--> 00:05:14

on behalf of whom you agree.

00:05:15--> 00:05:41

So if it is on behalf of yourselves, surely there was a cost to take it from here to there, which is divided among so many people, because the charity is not only going to take yours and give it but they're going to take that of a few 1000 people and then give it if you were to add a few more dollars or engaged on that in order to facilitate that it is better than just giving the amount and no more than that.

00:05:42--> 00:06:35

Why should someone else incur the costs of your printer of Islam being fulfilled for you, and they are incurring a cost? Give them something? I remember one organization, inviting the poor people to a central place, and telling them that please come on this day to this place, and we will give you some food hampers. And I told them when they're coming the incur costs of transport from their village to where you call them. Who is paying for that? We don't know. What do you mean you don't know? Why should the poor person pay for your circuit to be fulfilled? You pay give them the taxi fare or the transport money, five more engaged one more dollar give it to them.

00:06:36--> 00:07:04

So people said we didn't ever think of it. I said well, it's a thought, isn't it? It's something great. My pillar of Islam, my Zakah a poor man is paying to facilitate it for me. Yet Islam teaches you consider yourself fortunate that there are poor people that you have recognized and given to because that is the favor of Allah A day will come when you won't be able to do that. So my brothers and sisters mashallah I'm happy to be here.

00:07:05--> 00:07:10

And I really today we are going to speak about the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:07:11--> 00:07:19

the Prophet peace be upon him and me. Subhanallah what does that mean me, me would refer to you and I,

00:07:20--> 00:07:24

and myself and our relationship with this

00:07:27--> 00:07:30

wonderful, beautiful, amazing

00:07:31--> 00:07:32

creation of Allah.

00:07:34--> 00:08:02

Who is the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him? It's important to know who is he? Allah has already ordained everything and he had done it. Way before creating creation. Allah's knowledge is superb. Allah's knowledge is such that what is never going to happen and not going to happen and was never going to happen. If it ever did happen, how would it have happened? Allah knows that.

00:08:05--> 00:08:07

If you go back in your life,

00:08:09--> 00:08:15

if you go back in your life, and you change the choices of certain things that you may have done

00:08:18--> 00:08:46

How would your life and being today Allah knows it already. So that's the reason why at times, you want things so desperately but Allah does not give them to you because he knows that this is not good for your future. Just ask Allah Oh Allah, if it is good for me, give it to me. If it is not good for me, do not give it for me that to me. And if you don't get it, be convinced in your heart, no matter how much you loved it and wanted it and desperately cried for it, if it did not come in your direction, it was not good for you move on.

00:08:48--> 00:09:16

Life is too short. Life is too short, the longest 100 years perhaps would still be too short in the eyes of Allah. It's just a speck in the dot. How many have lived 100 years there were quite a few. There are some whom we might know right now have lived 100 years of who are still living. It's actually just a droplet against time itself. Time is a creature of Allah. So the knowledge of Allah is vast, vast.

00:09:19--> 00:09:34

Can either can or can you fire corner, Allah knows the past, Allah knows the present and the future. And Allah knows that which will not be in the future how it would be. If it were to be amazing, amazing. It's a very deep statement. However,

00:09:35--> 00:09:39

Allah Almighty created the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

and you and I know that Adam May peace be upon him was created from dust mixed with water, soil, sand, and the combination of the earth mixed with a bit of water given a shape and then the shape was led

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

To stay for a while.

00:10:03--> 00:10:13

And then Allah blew in it a soul and Adam Alayhis Salam came alive, he was already an adult, when he was created.

00:10:15--> 00:10:18

And Allah says when we created him, it was unique.

00:10:19--> 00:10:27

The uniqueness was such that he already spoke he knew the names of everything, while I lemma Adam

00:10:34--> 00:10:52

II can beautiful verse of Surah Baqarah where Allah says, We taught Adam the names of all things. So when he was created, he already knew this is a tree. This is for example, the sky this these are mountains, this is water and so on. They already knew it.

00:10:53--> 00:11:08

What language Allah he I don't know. I cannot guarantee you what language it was, but there was some language. Some people say it could have been Arabic and so on Allahu Allah, Allah knows best it's irrelevant what language it was, but I do know

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

probably wasn't English.

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

And definitely not Malay.

00:11:18--> 00:11:27

No, no, who knows? It could have let me not say that. You might get upset by Sunday, no Monday, you know, some of the old fellows mashallah mustard in Malay, volleyball like

00:11:29--> 00:11:52

my brothers and sisters. At that juncture, do you not agree that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam existence in some form was already there because Allah Almighty says that he's created us thereafter from the to Adam and Eve, Adam and Hawa May peace be on them and Allah says, we're in Boca.

00:11:53--> 00:12:01

Benny moody moodily down. Well, I had a woman

00:12:03--> 00:12:08

and has to be loving goon Khan who Bala Shahidan

00:12:09--> 00:12:11

Duk goo young woman

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

in

00:12:16--> 00:12:24

love eating. Allah tells us he created or he removed from the back of Adam.

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

He removed from Adam Alayhis Salam, all those who were to come

00:12:32--> 00:13:12

right up to the end from him. Everyone. You were there I was there. I can't remember but I was there you were there. And what was the question that Allah Almighty asked them and that's to be a become a might not your Lord and everyone says Indeed you are. Allah says Don't forget the state. Don't come back to me one day and say we forgot Allah He my brothers and sisters. That is the fifth law upon which Allah created us. What is fitrah uncontaminated nature of man. That word uncontaminated is absolutely important, because the Hadith says ma'am in melodeon in our EULA do and fatality, for Ebola, who you are with the needy, or you know Serani Oh, you Medusa.

00:13:14--> 00:13:16

There is no one who is born,

00:13:17--> 00:13:18

except that they are

00:13:19--> 00:13:22

born upon fitrah upon the nature.

00:13:23--> 00:13:47

And Allah Almighty says clearly, the parents play a role in contaminating that particular fitrah or, in letting it follow through, the parents would conclude, educate them or make them think in a certain direction. And this hadith says the parents would make them into Jews or Christians or whoever it may including Muslims, you would be that

00:13:48--> 00:14:35

within yourself if you were uncontaminated, you will recognize what's right and wrong on your own. The minute this contamination of environment, as you grew older, you saw things it's like programming your phone, you downloaded apps, but one day your phone was new, and they were no apps, no apps, one terabyte space, one terabyte space, you buy the phone, it's brand new, what is in it, one or two things to keep going? A few factory settings agree. These factory settings allow you to download things as you download 123 it begins to affect your phone right? Wallahi The same applies to mankind where as you grow older, you see things you are taught things you watch the environment

00:14:35--> 00:14:38

and so on. And subhanAllah Guess what?

00:14:39--> 00:14:50

Guess what? You start thinking this is normal. This is okay my brother that's not normal Subhanallah it is only because of the environment that you think it's normal.

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

When I was much younger, we did not have mobile phones. If you told me a day will come when you just hold something and you can see some

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

When I would have told you that's crazy, it's not happening.

00:15:03--> 00:15:05

And I think many of you perhaps would agree.

00:15:07--> 00:15:40

But as time passed today, the child is born from the early age, not only does he know that the phone exists, he can tell you that in order to open this phone, you need your mother's face. I promise you, they turn it around. They start crying, they can't even speak to you, but they know you need to change. You need to open this I need your face or I need this. They know your passcode you have a patent, trust me is a one year old knows your patterns, I swear. Why? Because they were born into it. They know. They know this is what's going on. May Allah Almighty grant us ease.

00:15:41--> 00:16:14

So this fifth Allah that Allah created us upon, Allah says at that time, we asked everyone else to build up the compound obala they said yes, indeed you are under Kulu, yo, Malkia, Medina, hakuna and hada Philippe, don't sit, don't come on the day of judgment and tell us Oh, we were unaware of this, go back to the fifth round, go back to the nature go back to what Allah had created you upon what is nature, nature will lead you towards believing that there is one supreme deity and make a who made absolutely everything He created you and I he created the prophets, and he created the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him to

00:16:17--> 00:16:23

Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina, Muhammad, WA, ALA, Muhammad and wasabi about emotions.

00:16:25--> 00:16:34

So Allah Almighty tells us that He created everything he created men, from the time of Adam, already the DNA

00:16:36--> 00:17:05

was going to come down through the generations if I check you or me, we do a DNA test. If we could go further enough, we would find the link between us today. You and I probably related 15 to 30 generations up and I promise you, we will have a common forefather. Not not more much more than that. 1530, maybe a little bit more, but we would meet somewhere.

00:17:07--> 00:17:20

So imagine if you could go a few 100 A few 1000. I don't know how far it was, no one knows exactly what the date was the day Adam Alayhis Salam was created because there was no one keeping dates at the time.

00:17:22--> 00:17:27

When I say keeping dates, I'm talking of the calendar I'm not talking of any other dates, there are two other dates that come to mind. Right?

00:17:29--> 00:17:31

Young people immediately the date is

00:17:32--> 00:17:33

Allah make it easy.

00:17:35--> 00:18:16

So we are connected. If we are connected, and DNA can prove that we all went back to Adam. If it were one day, it will be able to go so far back and we will prove a few things. I promise you one day we will be able to go so far back and prove we were not from apes. Not from apes. A guy sitting next to me one day, he tells me we got a beautiful discussion. And then he started asking me about the theory of evolution. What do you say about the theory of evolution? To my have nothing to say about it? It had it's it's a very broad thing. It has so many aspects to it. What are you? It's just not evolution, meaning we're from apes. That's it. Maybe you're from an ape. I'm from a human.

00:18:19--> 00:18:26

It's true. Maybe Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about him. Some people there was mercy. And they were actually converted to AIMS.

00:18:27--> 00:18:39

So maybe your forefathers might have been some of those. Allah says Rajat Alameen homonuclear, the devil the fantasy of Allah says the animals from some people maybe you might have been from that Allah knows best but me know.

00:18:41--> 00:18:43

I even know how to say it in Malay WA.

00:18:46--> 00:18:47

Yes.

00:18:49--> 00:19:37

So Allah Almighty had already known that he is creating Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the final messenger, the greatest of creation, the most noble of all prophets, the one who is perfect Allah created him in such a beautiful way mobile era and min Cooley is free from all defense sons Allahu alayhi wa sallam, the greatest greater than Adam greater than Abraham greater than Moses greater than Jesus greater than all of them may peace be upon them all. They will all great, great, but Allah says Dean Cardozo know how Mala Lahoma Allah Humala about me, No man, can lemma Allah, all of

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

them are

00:19:41--> 00:19:52

the messages we have favored, some of them above others, and Allah Almighty says, from among them as those whom we have spoken to directly and we have raised some above others.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

So who is the greatest and the highest of maluleke hulky Walker, Mussolini

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

Prophet and mean, what is our connection? I believe he is the greatest of creation, the most noble of all prophets. The first one

00:20:11--> 00:20:26

who will enter Jannah, the one who will have the largest number of followers ever already that is proven imagine when the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was in Makkah and Medina when he told his companions

00:20:27--> 00:20:58

about the rest of the messengers, he says, On the Day of Judgment, they will be a man with a group, they will say that is Moses, there will be a man with a massive group, they will say that his MO salah is a man with a small group that is this prophet, a man with this, it will be that person, that Prophet and so on, then they will be someone with massive large, large, large groups. That will be mean Subhan Allah, the largest did he know that they were going to be billions and trillions and quadrillions over the years follow him?

00:21:00--> 00:21:13

Yet he had no internet, no Facebook, no nothing, no Instagram, no Twitter, no tick tock, no zero agree. But today, more people know him than the whole of social media put together.

00:21:15--> 00:21:17

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:21:19--> 00:21:23

This was already in the knowledge of Allah. Allah told him. Listen,

00:21:24--> 00:21:40

you will have the largest OMA the biggest the greatest following. We are 1400 odd years away from him. After him, we are the greatest number there will never ever so many Muslims on Earth in history.

00:21:42--> 00:22:01

We are today perhaps beyond 2 billion in total who say Well, hello ana Muhammadan rasul Allah. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. I remember reverting someone one of the days in Shahada. I like to ask if I get an opportunity, what is it that convinced you to come a Muslim?

00:22:03--> 00:22:10

And the brother said he was elderly? He said, I've been watching people and religions for a long, long time, and I tell you something.

00:22:12--> 00:22:21

All these billions that I've seen coming in and out of Maccha on the television, they can't all be wrong at the same time.

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

They can't and what are they calling towards? This is something amazing, calling towards the fitrah and the nature of worshipping your Lord alone I was saying when you are upon nature, you recognize certain things one of them is you have a lord someone made you someone created you some supreme deity brought you into existence. Those who say it was just coincidence Why did that coincidence happen once why does it didn't happen again? Agree man came on earth by coincidence according to some just nature, we just popped in. Why was the gnome pop second time I'm waiting.

00:22:59--> 00:23:00

Pop again.

00:23:01--> 00:23:03

Marcia, Mashallah. Isn't.

00:23:06--> 00:23:07

With all due respect to them.

00:23:08--> 00:23:11

We're not hating on them. We're just mentioning what we believe.

00:23:13--> 00:23:41

So Allah Almighty says, if you are uncontaminated, you will recognize I need to worship who ever made me, I'm going to worship him. That's it. So who made you? Well, whoever it was, I'm going to call him the worship one he calls himself Allah, the worship one, the one who is owed worship, the one whom none is worthy of worship besides him.

00:23:42--> 00:23:59

That's the one. So when I say Allah Akbar, I'm declaring that whoever made me is the greatest. Whoever has brought me into existence is the only one worthy of worship and he is the greatest Allahu Akbar. That's what I'm saying.

00:24:00--> 00:24:08

The one who made me, nobody can argue with that statement, who is the greatest whoever is the creator is the greatest.

00:24:09--> 00:24:32

And after him who is the greatest whoever he decided was the greatest is the greatest after that. And who was that? According to us, Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam number one and thereafter, there are four others one after the other, boom, Allah says, those are the top notch messengers we chose them. Allah when we are starving, Meenal mela

00:24:37--> 00:24:46

Allah says Allah chooses very carefully, Allah selects whom he wants to be the messages from the angels as well as from the people.

00:24:47--> 00:24:49

You know the names of some of the angels,

00:24:50--> 00:24:53

let's say the greatest of all angels who what's his name?

00:24:55--> 00:24:56

jabrai

00:24:57--> 00:24:58

Namie another angel.

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

You

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

meekly name me another angel

00:25:04--> 00:25:06

it's Rafi name me another angel.

00:25:07--> 00:25:09

As real name me another angel.

00:25:11--> 00:25:18

Well, my father named me smile as well. Mashallah, that was a joke earlier where they say oh

00:25:19--> 00:25:30

what is the common factor between this man and the angels? Anyone whose name it is my okay? It's the eel at the end. MashAllah they will all angels have an E right?

00:25:32--> 00:25:40

Obviously don't take them too seriously. It's not from Quran sunnah. It's not from Branson. It's just to make yourself feel good. Yeah, into

00:25:43--> 00:25:55

Allah bless, mashallah I have a friend in South Africa called is mine and we always laugh about it because he was the first guy who told it to me. He says, You know what my father says you're an angel. You know? See how comes is that's why the eel is at the end, Mashallah.

00:25:56--> 00:25:59

I know some smiles were rascals, Allah forgive us.

00:26:01--> 00:26:17

So Allah chooses from among the angels whom he wants to be messengers to carry the message. And Allah is the one who chooses it's up to him he can do what he wants he chose and that's it. Similarly, he says, Wamena NASS, even from the people who have chosen so Allah says,

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

All Azmi Mina Russell the most are the greatest from among the messengers are those known as cool as

00:26:28--> 00:26:52

those who are dedicated they were all but those who are even more they spent time they had great effort, they had a great mark that they left look at the Quran filled with the story of Musa the salah Moses made peace be upon him. The story of Ibrahim alayhi salam, his sacrifices, Abu lumpia he was the father of the prophets who came after him, smile is hard, and so on.

00:26:54--> 00:26:56

So who are these five anyone can name them?

00:26:57--> 00:26:59

First Nabina Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam

00:27:01--> 00:27:03

No, may peace be upon him.

00:27:04--> 00:27:22

Ibrahim May peace be upon him. Musa May peace be upon him. Isa Jesus may peace be upon him. These are the highest of the lot. Those five are the highest they are in a companionship of their own. They are in a circle of their own. What is

00:27:24--> 00:27:37

nabi Hina me thank God whom want me to go I mean, you name our last one Musa Mr. E seven Imodium well advised

00:27:39--> 00:27:54

me that upon Vani law, Allah Almighty makes mention of these names in Surah, Allah Azza and Allah says them one after the other, they these are the old AZM in a row. So these are the five these are the ones they have been through perhaps

00:27:55--> 00:28:00

something that required greater determination than others.

00:28:01--> 00:28:41

Not to say the others will not determine the word Allah chose. When Allah chooses, do you have a say, No, you need to be happy. You need to be a person who acknowledges agrees. Look, the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. When they used to mock at him when they used to laugh at him when they used to speak to him when he was alone in Makkah, and he came with the message. The first people to believe were his best friends. His inner circle believed they said if he said he's telling the truth, he hasn't lied to us about worldly matters. How will he lie to us about matters regarding the hereafter which bring him out no benefit to him? Rather, he's saying worship whoever made you that

00:28:41--> 00:29:13

was the message. Are you a nurse kulula ilaha illallah to flip. Oh, people say there is none worthy of worship besides Allah and you will be successful. Or people say there is none worthy of worship besides Allah and you will be successful. He kept on repeating that in Makkah, so many times. Are you a nurse? kulula ilaha illa Allah to flee. That's the statement. He didn't say, worship me make me be worship me. Bow down to me prostrate to me. Consider me someone does that no way, nothing of that nature. He said I'm a messenger in nama.

00:29:15--> 00:29:16

Another con Nero movie.

00:29:17--> 00:29:29

And did I'm just a Warner, I'm coming to tell you worship whoever made you worship Him alone. How can you worship anything or anyone else worship the one who made you he is the one who is old worship.

00:29:31--> 00:29:44

So when he said that, who accepted the message his best friends? What does that tell you? Abu Bakr was his closest friend. He loved him so much before and after Islam.

00:29:46--> 00:29:53

When your closest circle trusts you when you are indeed a trustworthy person, they know your ins and your outs.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

Those who don't know you can comment they can say what they want and this is a piece of advice.

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

To all of us, we learn it to say all of us, the advent of social media has allowed us to interact with people we don't know. They will look at you and judge you, they will see something and comment they will pass the most negative comments. You know why? They themselves are drowning in negativity, so nothing to do with you.

00:30:19--> 00:30:37

They are drowning in them with negativity don't allow the statements of those who don't know you to make you think that your value is what they are saying, No, it's not. But those who know you those who live with you, that's why the Prophet peace be upon him tells us the best from amongst you are those who are best to their families, their spouses, that circle is amazing.

00:30:39--> 00:30:49

If you are good to them, and they can bear witness, this man is a really, really good man they know your ins and your outs and your secrets and whatever else and when you speak they either believe you or belie you

00:30:53--> 00:30:54

so as a result,

00:30:55--> 00:31:03

the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him his wife was the first ever to accept the message. What did she say?

00:31:04--> 00:31:31

He came down from the hilltop from the little mound that he had climbed up and he was meditating in Jabril Alaihe Salam came in with words of Revelations is gonna you know the first words, right? Read anyway, he comes down after that episode and he tells his wife, the Maloney's Maloney, or the Rooney cover me Envelop me. In our terms, give me a big hug. Subhanallah going to your wife and asking for a big hug.

00:31:33--> 00:31:36

Today his wife will say why explain what happened.

00:31:37--> 00:31:38

Suddenly you want to have

00:31:45--> 00:31:46

there was nothing to be shy about.

00:31:49--> 00:32:03

When he narrated what happened, she says Ken Lau Allah. This is one of my favorite statements of Khadija. In fact, the favorite words uttered by Sheikh Khadija of the Allahu anha that I always am motivated by

00:32:04--> 00:32:06

she looked at her husband.

00:32:08--> 00:32:31

And she says no, by Allah, I take an oath, he will never let you down because you are a good man. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Support of the spouse. I swear by Allah. He won't let you down. Don't worry. This thing here we will find out what happens. I will take you to my cousin. I will take you to worker he knows a lot.

00:32:32--> 00:33:11

Let's go and see him. She took the husband. Imagine she took the husband to say Come let's go see what worker says. worker bee novel says you know what? That was the angel that came to you. The day he tells you to proclaim if I'm alive, I will accept your message. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who is the one my hair is standing while I'm speaking to you. Khadija beautiful wailing says you are a person you fulfill the rights of everyone. You go out of your way to be good unkind to people. Allah cannot let you down my brothers and sisters, when you go out of your way to be kind and respectful to anyone and everyone that you come across Allah will never let you down. Evidence of it is what

00:33:11--> 00:33:12

Khadija says.

00:33:14--> 00:33:24

Something negative is happening in your life today. It can never be negative for the true believer. I generally am removed meaning for in the umbra, who could level

00:33:26--> 00:33:35

the affairs of a believer as amazing. Nothing negative can ever happen to them no matter what happens. It's always goodness that will happen to a believer.

00:33:38--> 00:33:46

Something negative came in your direction you both Summer. Summer is an act of worship that nobody can engage in, except the one whom Allah has tested.

00:33:50--> 00:33:58

They say in Allah, Allah Subhan Allah is with those who bear patients. If you haven't had difficulty, hardship, calamity or some form of

00:33:59--> 00:34:00

test from Allah.

00:34:01--> 00:34:03

How can you engage in some,

00:34:04--> 00:34:18

even to fulfill your obligations is a test from Allah to stay away from haram is a test from Allah, you know, the different categories of slavery, Allah is with you because you were strong enough to fulfill what you had to and you were strong enough to abstain from what you had to.

00:34:21--> 00:34:34

So how many of us, the closest circle to us would bear witness that we are good people. Today, I want you to think about it. We can actually change that if it is not true for us.

00:34:35--> 00:34:48

From today, be a good person, be honest, upright, be helpful. Don't make life difficult, especially for those who live with you and your family members. Don't make life difficult for each other.

00:34:49--> 00:35:00

You make life difficult for someone, it's a debt. It will come back if not in this world in the next on the day of judgment and you're not going to run away from anything you

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

Stand in front of Allah and that's it. Everything comes out to your alma tubular Salah on that day when all the secrets are made there. May Allah forgive our shortcomings.

00:35:11--> 00:35:23

So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the support he received, and his wife believed him. A lot of us are wild don't believe us, including myself.

00:35:24--> 00:35:25

Say something they say no.

00:35:28--> 00:35:37

No matter what you think you might think, okay, Chef, how can you say that it's true. Sometimes they you say something, they say, Sky noise. That's not true.

00:35:39--> 00:36:21

Here's the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam. That example is so beautiful. The wife was the first one she said, I believe. You're saying she didn't even question him. Imagine you say, you know, an angel came to me, Oh, this is what happened. And she says, Did it really happen? No way. No way. Subhan Allah Allah, Allah Allah when she believed immediately and then when they narrated it you know what the cousins that Ali Ronnie Allah one who was living with them, he believed immediately he said, No, it's Yes, I believe. He was he knew Abu Bakr Siddiq on the Allahu Anhu believed immediately he was a friend, an adult, on your on your man who was still young.

00:36:23--> 00:36:35

From among the boys, he was the first from among the adult males. From among the adult females was Khadeeja, metal foil and those were the three the first three firstly, who were the closest circle then after that,

00:36:37--> 00:36:42

his friends, those whom he's interacted with over time, they accepted you are indeed a messenger.

00:36:44--> 00:36:52

May Allah resurrect us as a friend of Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Day of Judgment say

00:36:54--> 00:37:02

what Allah He my brothers and sisters, if you were there, would you accept the message? Good question, right?

00:37:03--> 00:37:32

If you were there, at that time, would you accept the message? Now I want to take you into today. Halal and Haram is clear to the do's and the don'ts are already clear what the messenger said and did not say is already quite clear. We still do not accept his message up to today and we call ourselves followers. I'm telling you, when they when they saw or heard that alcohol and intoxicants were prohibited they they throw it away.

00:37:33--> 00:37:45

When you and I know things are prohibited, we still don't throw them away. We don't even stop them. May Allah strengthen all of us. And when I say May Allah strengthen all of us, including me, may Allah strengthen us to do the right thing.

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

Salah a prayer

00:37:50--> 00:38:00

when he said prayers are how many times a day, five times a day pillar of Islam. Awesome. Maghrib and Isha some of us Whoa, whoa, whoa, awesome, lovely Venetian.

00:38:01--> 00:38:02

It it's a fact.

00:38:04--> 00:38:05

You know what that means?

00:38:07--> 00:38:09

I see someone somewhere there's understood.

00:38:11--> 00:38:12

Low mercury.

00:38:14--> 00:38:20

Then what happened? The other ones you missed them completely. Forget what happened to it. We snooze.

00:38:22--> 00:38:24

Didn't we tell you if you snooze, you lose.

00:38:26--> 00:38:27

That's a fact.

00:38:29--> 00:38:34

So whenever you disobey an instruction of ALLAH given by Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam,

00:38:35--> 00:38:50

tell yourself I need to strengthen myself. If I'm a true messenger, if I'm a true follower, strengthen, cater for. The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam tells us that the two units of prayer prior to the fall of Fajr are better than the whole world and whatever it has,

00:38:51--> 00:39:00

you know, the Hadith Rakata essentially, say you don't mean a dunya we're mafia. That's exactly how it's worded. The two units of

00:39:01--> 00:39:16

prayer prior to the fall, which means the Sunnah of Fajr better than the whole world and whatever it has, I want to ask you a question. If that is better than the whole world in whatever it has, what do you think is the value of the 100?

00:39:19--> 00:39:20

What do you think is the value of the 100

00:39:21--> 00:39:59

that don't Java joinable whom I need my body and then on our button, on my my I Surah Sajida. Allah speaks about those who are close to him, and he says their sides forsake the beddings. At night, they are standing in prayer, hope and fear. They are hoping for the Mercy of Allah, and they fear the wrath and the punishment of Allah. They are standing in prayer. I tell you, my brothers and sisters, if you do that good, Allah has invited you to do it. So you are accepting the invitation and Allah has accept

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

Did you to do that? The 100 is by invite only

00:40:05--> 00:40:06

the 100 is by

00:40:07--> 00:40:08

invite only

00:40:10--> 00:40:35

you're invited to fulfill it. Allah helps you to get up as the time Allah puts it in your heart Let me stand Allah puts it in your heart Let me who let me wash myself Let me pray Let me cry to Allah that is by invite only if you're doing 200 Congratulations on condition that you don't think that you're bigger than everyone else i mashallah me these guys are nothing man

00:40:36--> 00:40:47

and that is a problem after you didn't shake on contaminated list and took it away from you and made you think you were superior don't think that we are all part of the same struggle no matter what

00:40:49--> 00:40:51

the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him

00:40:52--> 00:40:53

when we say

00:40:55--> 00:40:58

that he was created free from any defect

00:41:00--> 00:41:02

a poll puts it very well

00:41:04--> 00:41:08

by saying Holika mobile run min COOLEY I mean

00:41:09--> 00:41:16

you have been created free from every defect. When you looked at him he was so pleasant.

00:41:18--> 00:41:25

They describe his face for you and I and say, What you who who can who get the out to cover

00:41:26--> 00:41:30

his face was as though it was a piece of the moon moonlight

00:41:31--> 00:41:39

lit while you look at him so pleasant. Mashallah. Because Allah created him that perfect, no bad qualities from the beginning.

00:41:42--> 00:41:46

No habits that ever needed any rectification or correction.

00:41:48--> 00:41:53

They knew him as the most truthful, the most trustworthy. In Arabic, how do you say that?

00:41:55--> 00:41:56

A surgical Amin

00:41:57--> 00:42:05

most truthful, most trustworthy, because he was about to come with a message. If he was not truthful and not trustworthy.

00:42:06--> 00:42:09

There would have been no point in sending the message through a man like that.

00:42:11--> 00:42:12

So when you look at it,

00:42:15--> 00:42:45

in that society, already the preparation was happening. They knew him honest, trustworthy, honest, trustworthy. The companion said, If this man did not lie to us about worldly matters, you would never lie to us about heavenly matters because he was always honest and trustworthy. There we go. But the day he came with that message, guess what happened? They immediately said some of them who did not know him well, some of the leaders and the cronies. They said he's a liar.

00:42:47--> 00:42:53

And if you go back, the only people who said he was a liar with those who did not know him.

00:42:55--> 00:42:56

Anyone who knew him

00:42:57--> 00:43:00

close range, believed immediately Subhanallah

00:43:02--> 00:43:18

what does it go to show? It goes to show to this day if you recognize Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, you will immediately know he is truthful. But if you do not recognize Him, you begin to dilly dally. That's it. Give him a chance. People say

00:43:19--> 00:43:42

I want to learn about Islam, give me the Quran. Good enough, mashallah we can give you but as a point of entry, rather read the spirit of the Prophet first SallAllahu sallam, you understand what I'm saying? As a point of entry, maybe you need to get acquainted with the man who brought the message whom ALLAH chose to be our leader, read about it, then when you start with the Quran, it will put some context into it.

00:43:44--> 00:43:51

But it's not wrong to go straight into the Quran. I have so many people says I'm interested to know about Islam, can you give me a copy of the Quran? Right?

00:43:52--> 00:44:09

I wouldn't give you but I will tell you give you another book. This is a beautiful book on the Syrah. Can you take this and just read this first and then you go into the Quran? And the Quran was revealed in a certain order. It's called the order of revelation. first surah was which surah?

00:44:11--> 00:44:43

Which Surah Al Allah right? A Cara and so on. They were shorter suitors in Makkah and whatever. So it's interesting to know the Quran in that particular order, especially for those who are not Muslim or those who are weak at times. If you start off that way, it might answer questions that you may have had. Because when the Quran was revealed, the disbelievers at the time who mostly accepted Islam after a certain time, they knew it for that order. May Allah grant us goodness.

00:44:45--> 00:44:46

So

00:44:47--> 00:44:50

why is it so important for us?

00:44:54--> 00:45:00

Why is it so important for us to send blessings and salutations upon Maha

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

EUMETSAT Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:45:03--> 00:45:14

When Allah chooses, Allah chooses something and when you acknowledge the favor that Allah has bestowed upon another, you have acknowledged Allah.

00:45:16--> 00:45:20

They say in Al Hassan, Hassan Al schemata

00:45:21--> 00:45:31

that is a Hadith. It's a statement of the Prophet. Jealousy will eat away at your good deeds in the same way that fire would consume a dry lager.

00:45:33--> 00:45:40

Why does jealousy consume your good deeds? Say for example, someone suddenly became a millionaire

00:45:41--> 00:46:18

and giving you a worldly example right? Let's say he earned his money through Halal means I'm not going to talk about haram means right? Halal means you became a millionaire. What do people say? People fall into a few categories some people won't know. Okay. Other people will say wow, mashallah, you did so well. Alhamdulillah May Allah bless you, Allah grant you goodness, and deep down they'll say May Allah give me too I also need a million right? Is that a bad thing? Not a bad thing. I'm happy for you. I thank Allah for you and I say what Allah give me some of this some of something similar to this or even more maybe pray there's no harm.

00:46:19--> 00:46:25

When it comes to money, we are quick to pray very fast money. Mashallah.

00:46:29--> 00:46:42

And another category are those who will say he's doing drugs. I'm sure they're selling something funny. These people are evading tax these people others that's why they're making so much you know what this business of this is just a cover. Have you ever heard that?

00:46:44--> 00:47:04

Well, Allah He if you don't have pure evidence in that regard, you're a loser. That's what you're saying that you're a loser. How could you say that? Say 100 In mashallah Tabata kala La Quwata illa Allah may Allah bless them with more Why do you want to become a person whom whenever you see someone having good and you have to think negative, they mean something? Hanky Panky.

00:47:05--> 00:47:09

Subhanallah no chance that's not true. That's not true.

00:47:10--> 00:47:11

Be happy.

00:47:12--> 00:47:25

When you are happy with what Allah has bestowed others, Allah was the one who gave him initially. So it's part of worshiping Allah, to protect yourself from jealous, I'm not jealous.

00:47:27--> 00:47:50

I'm not burning within I will acknowledge mashallah Allah has favored you. When the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was chosen by Allah, you were not chosen. I was not chosen to be a prophet or a messenger. But we were chosen to be followers. Followers of Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whenever I hear his name, I must appreciate the favor of Allah upon you and I

00:47:51--> 00:48:23

am appreciating it. Oh Allah, you made me a follower of the greatest of creation. You accepted me You allowed me to worship you're alone. And to follow this great messenger, the message that he brought is filled with goodness. The 10 commandments are amazing. The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam not only reconfirmed them, but the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam came with pure upright teachings, your entire life is governed by rules and regulations that will liberate you in the true sense.

00:48:24--> 00:48:36

If he has come about to the dress code, and he says, You shall dress this way, you shall dress that way. If you dress that way, you will be truly liberated for the first time in your life.

00:48:38--> 00:48:43

Liberation, I'm no longer enslaved by the gaze of man.

00:48:44--> 00:48:52

Why? Because I dressed the way the messenger taught me, I'm liberated. I don't need to worry about

00:48:53--> 00:48:57

how I'm going to look for people because I'm looking like this for myself and for Allah.

00:48:59--> 00:49:10

That's why I am the way I am. No matter what pressures society puts on you, you are liberated. When your financial dealings are free from that which is prohibited, you are truly liberated.

00:49:13--> 00:49:19

You are living on Earth and you are preparing for the hereafter. Your life on earth is going to be very short.

00:49:21--> 00:49:24

But your hereafter is absolutely eternal.

00:49:26--> 00:49:42

So all these rules and regulations that the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him brought to us they are an honor to fulfill. He says be upright, be straight. You want something make sure you get it in the proper way through proper channels. If you cannot do that, abstain.

00:49:43--> 00:49:45

We always say that to people.

00:49:49--> 00:49:51

May Allah Almighty grant us ease.

00:49:53--> 00:50:00

So I say every time I hear the name Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and so

00:50:00--> 00:50:16

Should you and don't be ashamed. The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him says to us whoever sends blessings and salutations upon me once Allah blesses them 10 times as a result, I want blessings sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:50:17--> 00:50:21

May Allah bless this man Allah has blessed him May Allah bless him more and more and more.

00:50:23--> 00:50:54

I'm not jealous number one number two is, I am a follower I will follow. To me the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is a messenger, the greatest, the highest a prophet of Allah. To me, he is the final of all the messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala I believe in the fact that he is hot among the beginner and a hot I'm gonna be in Allah Allah be here buddy his statement I am the last of the messages there is no messenger to come after me. Those were his statements. He says that in a correct narration

00:50:56--> 00:50:57

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:50:59--> 00:51:20

So if I believe he's a messenger, it means he came with a message. What's the meaning of Rasul? Rasul is someone who comes with rissalah messenger who came with a message do I consider the message the Quran that he brought as the message of Allah? If the answer is yes, good news.

00:51:23--> 00:51:30

If he is the messenger, it means he has given a message from someone else from whom from Allah.

00:51:32--> 00:51:37

Evidence of it is in the entire Quran not once does He say, I am your Lord.

00:51:38--> 00:51:49

Muhammad peace be upon him does not says he says Allah says he is your lord or Allah talking to us saying I am your Lord. clearly referring to Allah and Allah Allah.

00:51:50--> 00:51:59

But the messenger didn't says, not once did the messenger says Worship Me no charge. He didn't say that. But he did say follow me.

00:52:01--> 00:52:02

Call in

00:52:03--> 00:52:11

to him Boon Allah. Debbie only fed Debbie Rooney, you be the Kamala

00:52:13--> 00:52:20

Khan says if you really love Allah and follow me, he didn't say that worship me, follow me.

00:52:21--> 00:52:31

And as a result, Allah will love you, and He will forgive your sins. So follow to the best of your ability. Everything of his he's recorded.

00:52:32--> 00:52:34

The actions of his,

00:52:35--> 00:53:23

the expressions of his everything recorded if he found the frowning is recorded, when he walked away, he walked in and recorded, how his hair was, how his face was, how his body the shape was, how he size it was everything, everything recorded, how he said how he drank, how he ate, how he wore his clothes, how he addressed his wives, what happened everything is recorded Subhanallah the only person in existence whose entire existence on earth was recorded from A to Z from the beginning to the end, everything recorded you want to know about him? There is no other human whom you can ever know in more greater detail and that of Nabi Muhammad salah?

00:53:26--> 00:53:30

Isn't it an honor? It's an honor. Allah, it's an honor.

00:53:33--> 00:53:42

At that time, they try to bring about any excuse to derail or to distract people from him.

00:53:44--> 00:53:59

What did they do? Let me say some of these things very important. It depicts and it shows our relationship as believers with the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and the contrasts those who disbelieved. At that time, they will lead us America.

00:54:01--> 00:54:22

They clearly said the reason why we're disbelieving is if we believe what this man has said. He is going to overtake and be the leader and we will lose our leadership. That's the reason we will lose our leadership. So you find Abuja Hello, one of the men Hamburglar a sham was his name. He fought the Prophet peace be upon him, because he was worried about leadership.

00:54:27--> 00:54:32

What did they do? They picked on what ever they thought they could, but was there anything.

00:54:33--> 00:54:42

In actual fact there was nothing they could pick on but they picked on the nothings that were then Subhanallah for example, he said he's a madman stuff that Allah

00:54:44--> 00:54:49

Allah answers why Massa, he will call me my Juno.

00:54:51--> 00:54:56

You know that verse. One man saw Hebrew gonna be my journey.

00:55:01--> 00:55:07

Your companion is not mad. You call him a madman. He's not mad. Listen to him. He's not mad at all.

00:55:09--> 00:55:28

When they told us about how big the Earth is, versus came, how huge how huge this entire creation is, and Allah says, la Hello Kusama yt, one around the kabongo mean hello kin. Wallachian

00:55:29--> 00:55:42

nursing, Moon, the creation of the heavens and the earth or the skies in the earth far greater than the creation of men. Men is insignificant. Check what we've made.

00:55:43--> 00:55:44

It's mind boggling.

00:55:45--> 00:55:47

Well, long ago

00:55:48--> 00:55:54

humankind just looked up and they saw Wow Subhanallah look at the sky.

00:55:55--> 00:56:30

In the evening, this moon Wow, they saw the stars Wow. Subhanallah look at the creation of Allah believers would look up and say amazing the creation of Allah. They would look at the Earth and check how big it is mashallah, look at it. Allah says what are the Medinah? We have stretched this earth. It is so wide and broad minded. Nah does not mean the earth is flat. It means we've stretched it. We've made it so wide and broad. There's a lot of space in it. And mashallah, it goes on and on and on. It's Allah's wave of creation.

00:56:31--> 00:56:38

Today, we have something known as the James Webb telescope. Have you heard of it?

00:56:39--> 00:56:41

Very few yeses here.

00:56:44--> 00:56:52

James Webb telescope, please google it, check it and download the app and start watching what's going on. They launched this telescope

00:56:56--> 00:57:06

approximately a million kilometers away from Earth or perhaps beyond, you'll find out where exactly it is right now. And what is it doing? It is sending back images of what it is seeing the

00:57:07--> 00:57:20

Wallahi they discovered 1000s And millions of massive planets. Right now as I'm talking to you in real time. It's happening.

00:57:21--> 00:57:26

And more and more and more and now they've discovered galaxies.

00:57:27--> 00:57:39

We used to say Venus Pluto Mars, let's forget about that. That's minor. That's nothing. What they've discovered right now and they're sending back images on our phones. You can see them here live. If you would like

00:57:41--> 00:57:55

galaxies upon get what is this? What is this? Wait until all of humankind hears about this and it digests or they begin to try to digest it, you will have to say La ilaha illallah is indeed the Creator.

00:57:56--> 00:58:33

Imagine galaxies. I remember reading the Hadith. This is a powerful thing I'm about to say. The hadith says the last person who's going to enter Paradise will have equivalent to the earth. Multiply, double, triple, quadruple and 10 times only for him. Today when you see the millions of planets you tell yourself Subhan Allah How will Allah give me 10 of these whole globes to myself? Not necessarily the earth, obviously. But equivalent to that 10 times Allah says the last person to enter paradise.

00:58:35--> 00:58:55

He will be so happy to just be in paradise. He won't want anything more than just the fact that I'm inside here. I've made it. I always tell people our lives are such that even if we are granted just entry into paradise, that's okay, that's finished. You know? I mean, today we're sitting here this beautiful place called SSCC Am I right?

00:58:57--> 00:59:10

When they put out the tickets to be sold, they were sold again. So many people ate what happened I didn't know but mashallah, look how many 1000 are here today. But the tickets were sold in the flesh.

00:59:11--> 00:59:18

Can I please come I will stand can I come I will stand by the door can I come? Whatever it might be? This is not even Jana. By the way.

00:59:20--> 00:59:30

We're only going to hear a little bit about Jana. And you can always hear it later on sometime maybe a month later or so. Whenever else but it will be there one day it will be there for us inshallah.

00:59:32--> 00:59:55

If people are jostling for tickets to attend an event of this nature Wallahi the true jostling is to get a spot in Jannah even if I just go in. Once you get closer to the door, you start feeling goodness, the wind and everything happening and coming and mashallah you make it in. I made it in Colossians Allah says Hang on, if you made it in, you shall be given whatever you desire, even if you just made it in.

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

So now that you made it in, what do you want? Is it okay? It's okay.

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

Whereas what if I gave you the whole earth one full Earth for you? Is it okay? Yes, it's fine more than enough. What if I multiply that? It's okay?

01:00:11--> 01:00:13

Oh, my slave for you

01:00:14--> 01:00:31

is 10 times what was on Earth only for you. That's the last person. That's the worst from amongst us imagine what someone's slightly better than that will get. And I always think about the greatness and I tell myself, I'm either going to be that guy or someone better.

01:00:32--> 01:00:37

Because if someone says the worst from amongst us say I'm the worst from everyone, at least I'm going to get that much.

01:00:38--> 01:00:49

And if you're not the worst, you've got to be somewhere above whose worst means you the lowest. So the rest of us will be above all, if you are the worst everyone else going to be above inshallah will be above that. Hopefully we ask Allah,

01:00:50--> 01:00:51

you're going to have a lot.

01:00:53--> 01:01:36

Allah says, well as solfa Yura T corrupt Booker Fatah. I want to tell you something amazing about this verse. In surah Taha, it is addressing the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. But the message is for all of us very soon, when the symbol for Europe, Africa book and Fatah, very soon, Allah will give you Allah will give you so much fatter than the fact that is there. I've seen so many translations. I've seen so many translations, the fact that is this, they translated as so you will be pleased so you will be happy. But that far actually translates as until you will be pleased until

01:01:37--> 01:01:39

it's for Elia. It's for

01:01:41--> 01:01:58

getting to a point, we will soon give you so much until you are pleased you will keep on getting and getting and getting and getting. What are some of your think Rob, banca Fattah roba very soon we will give you until you're going to be pleased

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

Subhanallah

01:02:02--> 01:02:18

so whether you look at the translation that says so it will please you or until you will be pleased. The meaning is not very much different. But the one refers to something that tells you you will continue to get until you're happy you're happy now Hollis.

01:02:20--> 01:02:21

And the other one says

01:02:22--> 01:02:24

so you will become happy.

01:02:26--> 01:02:50

Many times on Earth in our lives. We feel you know what I'm going through challenging times. It's tough. It's really hard. I have this problem, job problem, family problem, health problem, whatever else issue it may be, I need to get married. I need to do this or my children or whatever else it is Allah make it easy for everyone. Pray for people pray for others. And Allah will open your doors. I tell you what.

01:02:52--> 01:03:04

We think at times that Allah is doing this to me because he's upset with me not necessarily. You're a believer. What did you do? Do you seek forgiveness of Allah? Yes, then there is no chance that he's upset with you.

01:03:05--> 01:03:10

Allah says We do not punish those who seek forgiveness.

01:03:11--> 01:03:42

Well, America and Allah diba, whom were on yesterday, feel oh, Allah will not punish them while they are seeking forgiveness. You're seeking the forgiveness of Allah. It's not a punishment. You know what it is? It's a test from Allah. It's a challenge. Take it in your stride. These days. Allah did not forsake you. Allah did not leave you. Allah did not forget about you. Allah is only polishing you you come out better. I go through a challenge. What does it do? It helps me to change my life and start doing the right thing. That's a gift of Allah.

01:03:44--> 01:03:59

Many people don't do the right thing. Until it's a challenge happens. They made a massive accident near death. But you're still alive because Allah says We just wanted you think with a different lens to look with a different lens.

01:04:02--> 01:04:08

You were too engrossed, you forgot us, we just reminded you, you're coming back to us quickly prepare.

01:04:09--> 01:04:15

So what happened near death, Oh, I almost died. But you didn't next time it won't be almost died.

01:04:17--> 01:04:28

The only difference is you won't be saying it to those years, you're going to come down. You know, they say when you die. To a certain extent you end up meeting some of the people on the other side

01:04:29--> 01:04:34

is a detail it's not our topic today but to a certain extent there is interaction with them. Imagine

01:04:36--> 01:04:40

on earth you tell people I nearly died because you didn't die.

01:04:41--> 01:04:52

But when you die, I mean the other side all these guys and all these people die already and dead Subhan Allah may Allah grant us goodness May Allah Almighty forgive us really.

01:04:53--> 01:04:58

So when they picked on the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him they called him a womanizers

01:04:59--> 01:04:59

what

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

A man interested in women.

01:05:04--> 01:05:04

What happened?

01:05:06--> 01:05:08

Time proved them totally wrong.

01:05:11--> 01:05:12

They said he wants

01:05:14--> 01:05:16

wealth he wants money.

01:05:18--> 01:05:23

What happened? Timing, proved them totally wrong. He passed away.

01:05:24--> 01:05:32

And he did not have more than fairly few belongings. Yet he was the Nabhi of Allah.

01:05:33--> 01:05:38

When he was alive, there was a time in Maccha when they barely had food and drink.

01:05:40--> 01:05:48

When they called him a womanizer Subhanallah he only had one wife who was older. And she was the mother of his children.

01:05:50--> 01:05:56

According to some narrations, she was much older, some saying she was 14 and he was only

01:05:57--> 01:05:58

25.

01:05:59--> 01:06:05

But do you know that there are other durations that say she was 28? And he was 25? There's another direction.

01:06:07--> 01:06:15

Why are they sometimes durations about the exact age do you know the reason they did not used to document ages all the time. At that time.

01:06:16--> 01:06:31

They just use you just used to live as you grew older. They watched you and they saw you and that's how you were treated. Subhanallah they didn't use to document exactly. This person has so many years, so many years, so many years, etc. Besides a few people perhaps.

01:06:32--> 01:06:45

That's why there's always a discrepancy when it comes to age. They asked you how old was Isha? Exactly? Can I tell you what Allah is not going to ask me that question to enterpreneurs Hang on, before you go into paradise. How old was our issue?

01:06:47--> 01:07:24

People raised it now. None of his enemies ever raised the issue of his marriage to Russia not at the beginning and not at the end. None of those who lived around him at the time ever raised the age of anyone who was married at that particular time because it was something totally irrelevant at the time. The whole community including his worst enemies accepted it but 1400 years later, people want to raise issue Allah says you know what? In Kathina can Mr. Z in your reputation is in tact, they will not be able to harm you.

01:07:25--> 01:07:44

No one who loves scoffs mocks jeers can ever mess with the status of Nabi Mohamed Salah Salem, no matter how hard they try, I want to give you good news every time someone has come to blaspheme mine to be more and more people have entered Islam as a direct result of that blasphemy.

01:07:45--> 01:08:05

Subhanallah it's a blessing people burn the Quran I swear. Every man who has ever been the Quran has given rise to 1000s of people studying the Quran, and so many of them entering the fold of Islam that was Allah's way of introducing the Quran to the world. Subhan Allah, one of the ways

01:08:07--> 01:08:23

why, because the status of this messenger does not need your defense of mine. We will do it because it's an honor. But Allah did not need you or me to defend the status and honor of Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, Allah does it anyway with you or without you.

01:08:26--> 01:08:27

Allah says,

01:08:28--> 01:08:31

well Allah we are Similkameen and

01:08:33--> 01:08:40

verses revealed, where Allah says, Allah will protect you from the people in every way, physically as well as your reputation.

01:08:42--> 01:09:23

Physically, he was protected, no one could harm him. Do you know highly dependent, heavily independent Mahira are the Allah Who and you know that man was a great warrior. Before he was not a Muslim. He fought against the Muslims one day he came to Medina later on, and you know what he did? He accepted Islam. Guess what he told the people after he accepted Islam. He was sitting with him listening to his stories Interesting. Tell us he says we fought the Muslims and we fought the Muslims here. We fought the Muslims there and I tell you something, Raju Luma, more. This man here is a no go area. No matter how hard we try. We could never ever humble.

01:09:24--> 01:09:30

We couldn't do anything to him. It's as though he had protection around him.

01:09:31--> 01:09:42

My message messenger and uses so Allah, Allah Mohammed Salam, he was salam salam ala

01:09:43--> 01:09:46

Mohammed Salam Allah, Allah He was

01:09:50--> 01:09:51

the greatest of all.

01:09:52--> 01:09:54

Are Raju Luma moon,

01:09:55--> 01:09:56

no way you're going to harm him.

01:09:57--> 01:10:00

They could not harm him physically. They will

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

will never be able to harm his reputation. It's

01:10:05--> 01:10:06

the man who

01:10:08--> 01:10:22

tried to create videos and cartoons and whatever else it might have been against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. From among them, a whole group became Muslim over time.

01:10:25--> 01:10:30

Those who tried to destroy a reputation only destroyed their own.

01:10:32--> 01:10:45

They suffered and struggled with mental challenges. I've actually gone in and tried to do a little bit of research on some of those and you find they've all been on medication for psychological disorders, or a lot of them.

01:10:48--> 01:10:56

They've got a problem with themselves and they are victims of misinformation. That's why Allah says clarify clear they don't know.

01:10:58--> 01:11:24

They are victims of misinformation. That's why they hate on the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. And from the time of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him into if when they tried to harm him guess what the angels had offered to crush the people of five. The Prophet Muhammad says Allah Houma had come to me for in whom Allah Allah, O Allah guide my people because they are victims of misinformation. They don't know. They don't know.

01:11:25--> 01:11:39

When they knew a few years later, guess what? They became Muslims. But if he's Muslim, today, the great great grandchildren of the same people, they are all Muslims. They are praying five times a day

01:11:42--> 01:11:45

when they said the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him,

01:11:46--> 01:12:08

meaning the kuffaar of Quraysh. When they said he was after women, like I said he was they said he was after wealth. They said he was after power and position, what power what position? What wealth? What women, he had a wife Khadija, when he was in the peak of his life, 25 years, you're marrying a 40 year old lady. And that was your only wife at the time.

01:12:10--> 01:12:12

Until more than a decade later.

01:12:14--> 01:12:31

Subhanallah and your children were with him. Later on. He married widows, those who are divorced a few of them. Each one was for a purpose for a more noble purpose than the basic desire of man that You and I may marry for sometimes

01:12:32--> 01:12:34

it was a much more noble purpose.

01:12:35--> 01:12:44

It served a lot go and read it. Find out each marriage, why it happened and how it happened. And find out from correct sources, not just on the wrong sources,

01:12:46--> 01:12:49

you will know and realize, so no matter what they picked on,

01:12:51--> 01:12:52

it backfired on them.

01:12:53--> 01:12:56

Abu Sufyan had been harmed

01:12:57--> 01:12:59

one of the leaders of Quraysh.

01:13:00--> 01:13:04

At the time of the victory of Makkah, what happened, he came to declare his Shahada.

01:13:05--> 01:13:15

He acknowledged that the only reason we denied was not because we believed he was telling a lie. But we were worried about how it would change the demographics of society.

01:13:16--> 01:13:35

So reason why we tonight, so many people don't want to accept because you know what, when you accept it's going to change a lot of things. It's a bit painful initially, people might reject, they might do this, even when you want to do the right thing. Sometimes you have someone really wants to done the hijab, they really want to dress properly, for example.

01:13:36--> 01:13:37

They're worried

01:13:39--> 01:13:54

what's my father going to say? What's my mother, they're going to put pressure, they won't like it. People might come to me, I don't want you to do this talk. But I want to my own choice, my own freedom, my own will I would like to dress this way. They will not they will challenge you. Doesn't it happen to some people?

01:13:55--> 01:13:56

It does.

01:13:59--> 01:14:09

So Allah Almighty says when you choose to be steadfast when you choose to be steadfast, it's the acceptance of Allah.

01:14:10--> 01:14:12

And it comes

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

with joy challenging,

01:14:15--> 01:14:21

there will be challenges there will be hardship and difficulty. The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him What did we say?

01:14:22--> 01:14:43

We said he is the best of creation, the most noble of all prophets, the highest in every single way. created perfect. In fact, that same bullet goes on to say, an alcoholic that command the shell can hook the camera to shower. It is as though you will create it so perfectly. Exactly how you want it to be made.

01:14:45--> 01:14:47

Imagine before I come onto Earth,

01:14:48--> 01:14:56

if I could choose how my nose would be my lips would be my eyes would be my hair wouldn't be my complexion would be that will be amazing.

01:14:57--> 01:14:59

That would be amazing magic.

01:15:01--> 01:15:05

The only thing was a lot of us we will ask for a mirror in the womb of my mother. Can I have a mirror? Can see

01:15:07--> 01:15:13

no no no these eyes just changed him a bit. Okay put this there is no hairdresser in the womb by the way.

01:15:14--> 01:15:18

Imagine if that was the case that you could choose everything you could choose.

01:15:19--> 01:15:27

The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was created as though he chose perfect. Like what you want

01:15:29--> 01:15:47

to see when you looked at him there was a calming effect. I want to give you one quick example I told you about Khalid in the lead right? Or the Allahu Allah. When he came he says it's as though Subhanallah the man was protected. I'm gonna say two things. It says though the man was protected Halle didn't already have the Allahu Anwen.

01:15:49--> 01:16:00

The Sahaba or the Allah are known from among them. There was one who was previously a Jewish rabbi Abdullah Hypno salah. I tell you in Madina Munawwara they were waiting for the messenger.

01:16:02--> 01:16:06

When the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him came through that day.

01:16:09--> 01:16:39

He tiptoed in order to see because there were too many people around the messenger SallAllahu Sallam He tiptoed to see this man. And as He tiptoed to see this man, he saw the face he says, As soon as I saw his face, I knew this is not the face of a lie. Amazing. It's not the face of a lie. Sometimes you see a face and you You're so calm, Subhan Allah this is not the face of a lion. This man is honorable. This man has dignity. This man carries himself so well Subhanallah

01:16:40--> 01:17:16

it's not the face of a lion. And then he heard the first words come out of the mouth of the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. So he heard first words, are you a nurse? Oh people have to Salam spread a Salam spread peace without to harm and feed people clothe feed people food, be it your family members or be it those who are in need feed people, give them food share what you have with people on Mo Tom was suitable our hammer and fulfill your ties of kinship, your relatives, look after them go out to serve them.

01:17:17--> 01:17:32

Personally to be Laylee oneness with em and pray at night when everyone is sleeping asleep. Pray to your Lord at night. This man says I know this is the truth. He came to the messenger and said I bear witness you're a messenger SallAllahu says You are the messenger we were waiting for.

01:17:34--> 01:17:36

So he was recognized

01:17:37--> 01:17:51

how he didn't well either on the Allahu Anhu says, I knew this man was protected at the library Salam says I knew this man was a prophet. As soon as I saw him and I've studied the scriptures, and I still recognize this man

01:17:53--> 01:18:15

Subhanallah we are so fortunate we are sitting and mashallah we are already his followers. We require a little bit of correction here and there in our own lives. A little bit of strength to do the right thing by brothers and sisters, you know, when you need adjustment in order to become a better version of yourself, that today be the day.

01:18:17--> 01:18:22

Let today be the day. May Allah help us to change and do the right things.

01:18:23--> 01:18:26

There is a woman online, I forget her name a

01:18:27--> 01:18:30

non Muslim, she's still not a Muslim.

01:18:31--> 01:18:33

Allah will bring her I mean

01:18:36--> 01:18:42

she is a magician. According to her. What does she do black magic

01:18:43--> 01:18:46

and all sorts of casting of spells and so on for people.

01:18:49--> 01:19:13

I want to tell you it is prohibited as a believer to cast a spell. Mansa Ashraf the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him says whoever cast the spell has associated partners with Allah they've engaged in the highest possible sin that's it you're not allowed to do that. Another thing if you go to someone to do that for you, it's the same thing. A lot of people go nowadays to recording

01:19:16--> 01:19:16

Momo

01:19:21--> 01:19:23

these bombers will follow your whole life

01:19:26--> 01:19:28

and the first thing they bomb is your Eman

01:19:30--> 01:19:30

in this bomber

01:19:33--> 01:19:45

don't by you going to them you lost your faith. Remember you have to repeat your shahada Wallah. It's not a joke. Man at RAF and Olga Heenan for some data won't be my

01:19:47--> 01:19:59

be my own Zilla Allah Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam whoever goes to a soothsayer, fortune teller, et cetera, et cetera, those people who do this type of thing believes them regarding what they are saying has disbelieved.

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

In what Muhammad peace be upon in broad

01:20:02--> 01:20:18

disbelief. So you've been there, say your shahada again, start afresh. Don't ever don't ever have the urge to go and cast a spell to go to someone or to cast the spell yourself or to learn about it Harry Potter or whatever else it may be.

01:20:21--> 01:20:29

You're a believer. This lady was asked a question and the interview is online. It's on YouTube, you can go and search it.

01:20:31--> 01:20:32

Is there ever

01:20:33--> 01:20:44

people you try to cast a spell on and you can't? It's difficult. You said yesterday is? Tell us about it. She says the Muslims who pray five times a day.

01:20:45--> 01:20:47

And this is a non Muslims. What did she say?

01:20:49--> 01:21:16

She said the Muslims who are steadfast. It's as though they have a dome of protection around them. Wallahi these are her words. When I heard it that said Subhanallah I forwarded that message is that video to so many people, here's a lady sitting in an interview telling the interviewer about how she cast spells and it's a long interview one and a half hours, I think and inside this five minutes where she speaks about this question.

01:21:17--> 01:21:23

Is there ever a time when you can't really do this? You can't curse the species? Yes. Those who believe

01:21:24--> 01:21:38

why? She said, You know what? The Muslims, they pray so many times a day. There's actually like a dome around them. She calls it the angry goal. They AGRICO is very, very high. You can't really hit them.

01:21:39--> 01:21:44

What happened is I used to go see my brothers, my sisters. I believe in Allah.

01:21:45--> 01:21:52

It's AYATUL kursi. And it's the movie that the last few suitors of the Quran. Are we not taught to read it in the morning and the evening.

01:21:53--> 01:21:56

The disbelievers are bearing witness, where

01:21:58--> 01:22:32

May Allah protect all of us? We have a few problems in societies. I already mentioned about magic and going to people are casting spells but there is another bigger problem. What is the bigger problem? Accusing innocent people of witchcraft? That's a massive problem also, something happened you said no, but this person did. No, no, no, don't accuse someone without proper evidence because Chapin is just telling you it's that essence. It's that process. It's that process in order to break relations with innocent people. They are not the guilty ones.

01:22:33--> 01:22:37

Mostly they are innocent. May Allah Almighty protect our souls.

01:22:38--> 01:22:40

So my brothers and sisters

01:22:42--> 01:22:44

let me tell you something very interesting.

01:22:47--> 01:22:52

When Allah chose to favor entire humanities,

01:22:54--> 01:22:58

he actually blessed us with the nubby Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.

01:22:59--> 01:23:32

And when Allah chose you and I to be from the ummah of Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he favored us, we will be entered in Jannah by the will of Allah by the mercy of Allah and by the intercession of Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam My Messenger has told me that I will recognize you on the Day of Judgment, by the shine on the places that you used to wash when you used to make wudu so many times a day, the place will shine and I will recognize my ummah and I will tell Allah, Oh Allah, this person is from me and my ummah, let them come here

01:23:33--> 01:23:36

Subhanallah isn't it soothing?

01:23:39--> 01:23:45

He speaks about his intercession for those who have committed sins so that Allah will forgive them this person is from my own mind.

01:23:47--> 01:23:48

For as long as you try

01:23:50--> 01:23:53

and keep seeking the forgiveness of Allah, I have a lot of Oh,

01:23:54--> 01:24:02

Allah says We sent him as a mercy not just to mankind but to all creatures. Or ma

01:24:04--> 01:24:58

Illa Magdalene, me in a messenger We have not sent you except as a means of mercy for Allah, Allah Mimi, we send to you as a means of mercy for an Al Amin. He came in and taught us to be merciful to animals, to be merciful to other creatures. If Allah taught me to be merciful towards a dog, then what do you think Allah would have taught regarding other human beings? At times of war, we were taught, be careful how you treat the prisoners of war. Be careful who you fight, the elderly, the women, the disabled, the places of worship, all these unknown go areas even though you are in a wall. Today, they claim to be very advanced Wallahi today we are more barbaric than anything that

01:24:58--> 01:24:59

happened at the time of the Prophet Muhammad peace

01:25:00--> 01:25:20

To be upon, look at the treatment of those who go to prison, anywhere in the world. Look at how they are treated. If you know you will tell yourself sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we have the greatest of teachers, here is the messenger, he tells us even a prisoner of war should be treated with utmost dignity and respect.

01:25:22--> 01:25:41

Today we penalize punish and torture in the most advanced world, according to the world, that the type of torture that is served to those who are perhaps held in any prison is something that is totally unacceptable by any standards.

01:25:43--> 01:25:48

And then we blame Islam. The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him says be careful

01:25:49--> 01:25:50

how you treat them,

01:25:51--> 01:25:52

treat them fairly.

01:25:54--> 01:26:03

Respect, offer them food, clothing, drink dignity, let them relieve themselves in the correct way. Give them honor, Allahu Akbar.

01:26:04--> 01:26:12

That's why a lot of them turned to Islam. They saw, Wow, this is a faith. To this day, in many countries, people go to the prisons.

01:26:14--> 01:26:32

At times, if they're introduced to Islam, it gives them an opportunity to interact with this for the first time. They come out and they're Muslims. Especially in the Western world. They come out and they're Muslim because they finally were introduced to something that they discovered when they were in their solitude and so on.

01:26:34--> 01:27:03

But here is the messengers. Look at how he treated look at what he said about women. Imagine people say, Oh, oppressing women, oppressing women. When the statement the Prophet Muhammad says the best of you are those who are best to the women. Didn't he say that? We way is that teaching show me any one of the books that exist on Earth that has the teaching the best of mankind or those who are the best to the women. Allahu Akbar. It's not it's only my Nabi. sallallahu alayhi wa says

01:27:07--> 01:27:07

There we go.

01:27:09--> 01:27:11

Amazing sallallahu alayhi wa says

01:27:14--> 01:27:20

my brothers and sisters here we are sitting so many years later speaking about the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

01:27:22--> 01:27:22

honorable,

01:27:23--> 01:27:27

great. What a champion what a leader

01:27:28--> 01:27:30

when he enters Maccha

01:27:33--> 01:27:38

in something known as Fatima, aka the victory of maca, what was it?

01:27:39--> 01:27:52

It was a time when the army the Muslim army was massive 10s of 1000s and they marched to Makkah finally, because initially, when they spoke about Islam, and they taught Islam,

01:27:54--> 01:28:11

they were driven out of their homes. Maccha was the home of most of those people. They were called Al muhajir. Ron, they made hijra to Medina. Medina was not their own city at that stage, they shifted to it. When they were forced to leave, they went.

01:28:12--> 01:28:17

They left behind their belongings, their belongings were usurped, things were stolen.

01:28:18--> 01:28:24

Finally, Allah gave them a chance to return years later, Allah gave them a chance to return back to their land.

01:28:26--> 01:28:50

When they're entering Maccha, all those who fought them and killed their relatives and destroyed and stole their land and stole their property and harm them was standing there waiting, some of them wondering what's going to happen to us today. Here is a massive army people whom we've killed, their relatives we have destroyed we have stolen we have taken and here they are, we are at their mercy.

01:28:52--> 01:29:01

So here comes mine, B sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the messenger the Prophet Muhammad May peace be upon him, and he says Yamaha Quraysh

01:29:02--> 01:29:07

he stood up, he says, oh, people of Quraysh they're all looking why

01:29:08--> 01:29:10

we probably all going to be executed here today.

01:29:11--> 01:29:14

That's what they must have thought. And some of them did think that

01:29:15--> 01:29:22

because of the crimes we've committed, or people have Quraysh mother, Teresa Nona, and Neva olam become

01:29:23--> 01:29:40

what do you think I'm going to do to you today? Subhan Allah Subhana Allah. He's asking them the question, what do you think I'm going to do today? Now obviously, they would like to hope that there's something good going to come but they fear that the bank can also come in anytime and you know what, there's no escape no escape.

01:29:44--> 01:29:53

He says, I'm going to tell you what the Prophet Joseph told his brothers the day that they were ultimately

01:29:54--> 01:29:59

exposed. It Habu for undo tilaka you can go
