Shaban comes to us on a regular basis. And one of the first things he wants to take from us is our belief and our faith and he wants to really make us from those who are losers. shavon has promised Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, I will show you this man will not worship You, you will worship everything but you so today people worship graves, people worship trees, people worship human beings, people consider a man higher than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam people consider a man equal to Allah subhanho wa Taala people start saying, oh man in the grave, you give me paradise. And if you ask him, Why are you calling out to the man in the grave? He will tell you because that

00:00:46--> 00:01:34

man is purer than me. I am too dirty to go straight to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We have heard this we have seen people say this. How can we say that when Allah has chosen you to utter the Shahada yourself? Your relation with Allah is a direct link. That is the beauty of Islam. It is Hinduism and Buddhism and Christianity and other faiths that have added a medium between human beings and their created Islam came and taught us removal of all those mediums it is you and above you is Allah subhanho wa Taala the way to get there, the messages may peace be upon them all. And the last messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to us to teach us how to get to Allah. But he

00:01:34--> 00:02:26

himself did not say worship Me besides Allah. He never said that. In fact, he warned the people in a hadith he says LA to Rooney, come apparaten nosara animalium wala Qin kulu Abdullah, he rasuluh Be careful, do not go beyond the limits with me, like the Christians went beyond the limits with Jesus the son of Mary, you should always remember and say, Abdullah he rasuluh he is the slave of Allah and His Messenger, a slave. Some people get upset when we say Mohamed is the slave of Allah. They say don't use the word slave. But that is the Hadi Abdu who rasuluh who came from the Hadith. This is why we say what had to Allah, Mohammed Abu who wore a Zulu and we bear witness that Muhammad

00:02:26--> 00:03:15

peace be upon him is Abu rasuluh his slave, a slave because he obeys the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam obeys every instruction of Allah, it makes him a slave. If I obey every instruction of Allah, I become a slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But if I disobey the instruction of Allah, am I a slave of Allah? Am I a true slave of Allah? subhanho wa Taala May Allah forgive our shortcomings, and may He make us from those who realize and understand so when we have understood that the messenger came to us, not to invite us to worship him, but to invite us to worship a lot directly, then we are true muslimeen and this is why in the

00:03:15--> 00:03:42

Quran, we know that the Christians started worshipping Jesus May peace be upon him. When Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam came, the Christians were already worshipping Jesus May peace be upon him. So Allah subhanho wa Taala asks the question, and Allah subhanho wa Taala responds that particular question in the Quran, if you take a look at surah Merida towards the end Allah says, what is called Allah subhanaw

and when Allah subhanho wa Taala will ask, Is Jesus the son of Mary, did you tell the people to worship you or your mother besides Allah subhanho wa Taala? Are you the one who said it and he will say Suba Hanukkah, Glory be to You all praises unto you, Oh Allah, how could I have saved something that you did not permit me to say I did not have the right to say it had I said it had I uttered it you would have known it. One of the reasons of revelation of that particular list is to clarify for us that we do not worship in a be of Allah. So how can we worship a pious men in our midst, Allahu Akbar.

00:04:39--> 00:04:43

If we do not worship an abbey of Allah, we worship Allah, the One who sent them to be
