Allah Allah, Allah,
Allah Allah Allah Allahu Allahu Allah Sheree Keller. Why should I do now Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala Lee, he was happy in my beloved brothers and sisters, we praise Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. We send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his household, his companions, we ask Allah to bless them all and to grant them from his blessings to bless every one of us, and to grant us the best of this world in the next. My brothers and sisters, one of the biggest favors upon us is the fact that we are part of the followers of Mohammed bin Abdullah salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was sent as a mercy and he was sent not just as a mercy
to mankind, but to entire creation, on
our own guy in Metro Manila, me, and we have not sent you except as a mercy to all the creation, to all the worlds basically, to all species and to every creature of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So if we were to study the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fairly from the beginning to the end, we would see the mercy. He taught us all the goodness that we have. He taught us justice. He taught us absolute humility. He taught us every sweetness, goodness, everything that is upright and positive. And he taught us to abstain from negativity, bitterness, he taught us to abstain from that which is harmful, and all forms of negativity. My brothers, my sisters, Allah Subhana, Allah to
Allah says he has favored us by sending us from amongst us, a messenger who teaches us who reads the verses for us, who purifies us who gives us the guidance listen to what Allah says
la cardamon Allah long wire meaning I
mean foresee him yet no, yet
he was a key him while he was a key him while you on Limbo hormone kita while he was in
Obi Allah says at the end of that verse that, you know, even though the people were before that, in misguidance, in clear misguidance so people before that were in misguidance. As a result, Allah sent out of his favor to us, a messenger from amongst us who recited the verses of Allah, Who cleansed us in the sense that he, his teachings would purify us if we followed them, and he gave us every form of goodness, he taught us what was right what was wrong, and that was the blessing of Allah. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says something about the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.
The Prophet Mohammed used to feel hurt, when the people of Quraysh used to utter bad words about him or accuse him or belie him not believe him or say that which is false, you know, false accusation and so much more. And it used to hurt him. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells him quite clearly, in NACA final call Mr. de la, Luna avec la, la
la la cadena de

fessor b b Hamdi Arabic word can
mean as God word Buddha Baca had to tackle the these are the verses at the end of surah and Egypt, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, We have protected you from the scoffing and the mocking of all those who want to mock and who want to scoff.
Those who want to make a joke
out of you, we have protected you your reputation, we have protected the religion of Allah from those people, what you have come with we've protected it Subhan Allah, they will never be able to harm your reputation or messenger. That's what Allah says. They will not be able to harm your reputation or messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam in cafe NACA allmost as he knows who are these people who are mocking, number one, they will never be able to affect negatively your reputation because it is sealed. It is sealed by Allah, the more they rebuke or the more they mock, the more people will turn towards you Subhana Allah, the more people will love you because they will find out
who you were. So there is nothing like negativity, when it comes to the reputation of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam those who want to mock them mockery will affect them. It won't affect the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Not at all. look at history, I guarantee you, there has never, ever been a time when people have mocked at or tried to market, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and a large number has not accepted Islam. There's never ever been a case. So every time they do it, it's because Allah wants to bring them towards him and towards the deen towards Islam. That's why it is done again and again, from the beginning from the time of Muhammad, Allah salallahu
alayhi wasallam. throughout the decades and the centuries, it kept happening, and it will keep happening. Those who did it are the ones that last even from among them, there are many who have turned and repented, may Allah grant us goodness and those who are mocking or who are thinking of it or who have done it. May Allah give them a good opportunity to study and to study in all fairness, and inshallah they will repent, they will come, they will come so beautifully. It's Allah guarantee, that positivity will come out of such things. So Allah says, Who are these people?
They are the ones who call out today it is besides Allah, they don't follow Islam. They don't like you. When someone doesn't like you. They look at you with the glasses that are tinted, and they cannot see you for who you are, but they see you with their own tint. And that's why Allah says who they are. Allah says Allah Dena Jaya Luna Allahu Allah and Allah Hara for Sophia Lama. They are the ones who have placed deities besides Allah soon they will know what will they know they will know about their wrongdoing and they will know what is right Subhana Allah soon either in this world or in the next or both? May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us then Allah says, Allah Kadena Allah, we
know we know that. What they're saying
is tightening your chest your bosom, tightening, meaning, we know that you're hurt by what they say in another place. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Kadena lemma in Hua Zhu can levy aku
navali mean, Abby, yeah, Tina.
We know that what they're saying about you negatively, the accusations and so much more that they've leveled, we know that it's hurting you but we want to say to you, we want you to know that they don't belie you they know that you are the truth. You speak the truth. They they know that you are the Messenger of Allah, they know it very well. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, it is just the wrong doers from among them who have nothing better to do. So Allah says Subhana Allah, that they are denying they are in denial when they know deep down what the truth is, so that is installed to learn. But when it comes to certain hedger, Allah says, about the tightening of the chest that we
know what they're saying tightens your chest Subhana Allah
welaka dinner Allah Monica de casa de Luca de Maya Cola, or what does Allah say? What's the solution? People are saying things accusing, trying to make a mockery, you know, falsely labeling or accusations, whatever else it may be. Allah says, faseb be behind the Arabic declare, in abundance, the praise of your Lord Subhan Allah, that's the word you should say. Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah All praise is due to Allah. Glory be to Allah. Allah is the Greatest
There is no mic, no power except that of Allah. Now how La La quwata illa Billah. That's what it means. So Allah says, declare the praise of Allah a lot and you know what? prostrate, find yourself prostrating often and a lot. So when you prostrate which means your regular with your prayers. And when you are regularly with praising Allah, nothing will harm you, it will not affect you, you will realize that Allah is in control. And yes, if you want to engage in them in a positive way, you may do so Allah response in the Quran and defends the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him in the Quran. So all those accusations, their responses are already within the Koran if only the people can take a
moment to study the Quran fairly. When I say fairly, I mean with justice, understand it for its context, and for exactly what it means and the rules and regulations that are derived from it. And the teachings the beautiful teachings and don't misconstrue Don't misunderstand, don't look at it with the tint of your own glasses, remove those glasses, and then take a look. This is something Allah says so my brothers, my sisters, things that happen across the globe hurt us. People don't like us. People don't like Islam. They don't like the messenger part. If they make a mockery, remember that mockery is against them.
Allah says one Naveen a meanie in our Mina Tb viremic. Tessa boo,
Boo Bina Soraka Hassan. Allah says those who have accused the believing males and females of something they did not earn, then they have indeed, engaged in a huge slander There are so sinful just before that Allah speaks about the messenger. And Allah speaks about himself. Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
those who try to harm
Allah they will never be able to harm Allah. In en la Vina una la hora Sula, who, Lana, Houma la houfy dunya, one, zero in Serato. Allah says those who are trying they try to harm Allah. Before I even continue, let me tell you, they will never be able to harm Allah do what you want. You cannot harm your own maker, you are only harming yourself. That's it. It reminds me of a little baby making tantrums and saying things not realizing that's just a little baby Subhanallah a small child doesn't understand the reality doesn't have common sense. Not at all, doesn't know, excuse the child SubhanAllah. Unfortunately, it's happening with adults, and unless his adults are responsible, so if
they're trying to harm Allah, how can they try to harm Allah by falsely accusing Allah by saying bad things about Allah by trying to make a mockery about Allah. Allah says, You know what, they're actually the ones who will be cursing themselves. They're cursing themselves. Take a careful look at them. watch their faces, look at their lives. See how they live, and see what happens to them as time passes. If they don't make amends. They themselves are playing with their own maker Subhan Allah, they're the ones who stand to lose. That's what it is. And when it comes to the messenger peace be upon him. That's the same thing Allah says, In the levina una de la hora, Sula,
those who are trying to harm Allah and His Messenger, they won't be able to harm them. Allah says, the result of what they are doing is actually the curse of Allah upon them in this world and the next Lana, Houma, la COVID, dunya and akhira. Allah says, and they will be having a severe punishment. That's what Allah says, and that's between them and Allah. So my brothers and sisters, these are simple verses of the Quran that are filled with meaning, meaning that is full of guidance, full of reminders, full of warnings, full of good news, and full of news that would make us ponder and reflect. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us goodness, and a good understanding. So when we
respond to people who are making or trying to make a mockery of anything to do with our religion, that is sent by Allah through the messenger Muhammad peace be upon him or they are trying to say bad things about Allah or do bad things.
guiding Allah or His Messenger, may peace be upon him. Remember, don't react in a way that portrays hooliganism don't react in a way that may create a bigger problem out of the one we already have at hand. That is a big mistake that many Muslims make. We tend to come out to say I want to defend the honor of the messenger. I want to defend the honor of Allah subhanho wa Taala or my Deen? Yes, by all means, but through what channels? Should it be through hooliganism, through murder, should it be through, you know that which is unacceptable even in the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam look at what Allah told him in the Quran. Allah told him in the Quran what to do, unless
it's a behavior of becoming a surgeon, you know, declare the praise of Allah find yourself among those who are
prostrate, and at the same time, Allah says,
when you respond when you call people towards goodness, do so with goodness, you know, respond in a good way, give a beautiful argument back. Tell them why they are wrong. It's a moment to educate people. Right now people want to know so much about the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. It's up to us to make sure we teach them a lot about who he was and what he stood for. They have picked on four or five things. And they are harping on it, although they have twisted it completely out of context. And at times, they have taken something fabricated and made like that is the truth, not realizing that that's actually fabricated. So it's up to us to educate the people and to live upon a
very high standard of teachings. You know, every time the Prophet salallahu, Alayhi, wasallam, was faced with a challenge, he displayed the best of character and conduct and he continued earning greater closeness to Allah. And that always solved the problem. At times, it took a few years, but there was only positive growth. Trust me today. The reversion rate is very, very high. Islam is definitely by far the religion
that has the largest number of people reverting into it. I know there are some leaving, but for everyone that leaves a lot replaces them with 100. My brothers and sisters, remember this is in the hands of Allah. No matter what game people try to play. Those who are fair minded, looking for the truth will always find the truth. They will know that we stand for that which is just an upright, they will know we stand for morals and values of a very, very high level. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all, and grant us goodness of Guru Kohli. hada wa Salatu was salam o Baraka ala nabina. Muhammad wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
