If I were to ask you a simple question, Who is the best to take this earth ever? The correct answer would be Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam without a speck of doubt. We believe in that.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to understand the seriousness of that statement.
And then if I were to ask you and after him, we would have to say, the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

This is a very important point. And for this reason, it is disrespectful not to say to your loved one, no matter what had happened.

It was a totally different situation. It was right at the beginning, when we what we would turn the iron was hot and you know the molding was done at that particular time. We're lucky if we go through the sacrifices of those companions, we will come to learn that had it not been for that sacrifice today, we would not be seated in our 1000s in this beautiful
