The question we have is who is the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to you?
That's a very important question. Ask yourself today, who is the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to you
as a believer as a Muslim, he should play the biggest role in your life.
Law you may know how to combat the Akona have by Eli him in Walla de Wawa Lee one nasty edge mine.
The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him says you will not be a true believer.
or none of you will be true believers.
Until I am most beloved unto you or more beloved unto you.
Then your children, your parents and all the people
so for a believer
who is the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his or her life, the most important person now I asked you another question. Is that really the case?
Is that really the case? Think about it.
Do you really consider him the most important person in your life?
Today when you love someone you will find them two three times a day. You want to find out how are you Everything okay? You will watch you will see you will connect. You cannot sleep without sending them a message you need to phone you need to meet because why you love them so much so much. How many times do you connect yourself
with something to do with Nabhi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala ala Sayidina Muhammad was happy he robotic was salam. That is called a Salah Allah Nabhi in order do we call it Durood Sharif?
In Arabic it is said Salah Allah Nabi
Do you know that if use Send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once? Allah Almighty loves that so much that He multiplies the reward for you by 10 Man Salah Allah Yahweh he the 10 sallallahu alayhi Bihar Ashra whoever sins Salah and salam upon Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once Allah sends or blesses him 10 times as a result. So when I say Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad, wa ala ala Sayidina Muhammad in wa sahbihi wa barik wa salim, I am actually helping myself more than anyone else.
I am helping myself.
Similarly, when it comes to his teachings, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there are people today on Earth, who will tell you we only believe in Quran and nothing else. I'm sure you've heard of so many of those people. We only believe in Quran and nothing else. Well, if you really believe in Quran, here is a verse of the same Quran on our cell Nam your rasuna in Leo qua RB in
what a beautiful verse. Allah says We have never sent a messenger except for him to be followed by the will of Allah. Why would Allah sent the messenger if he was not to be followed? When Allah sends a messenger, why is he sending the messenger? So Allah says, Leota in order for him to be followed
me up rasuna father, Allah, whoever follows the messenger has followed Allah because the messenger is the one who came to you with the message. If you cannot accept the messenger being followed, how can you accept the Quran when he brought the Quran?
He brought the Quran. So if you don't want to follow Him, Why follow the Quran? He who brought the Quran to you, he brought it
from the time he was born and before he was born, Allah protected him
protected him from everything negative. He was always protected. Do you know why? Because if I want to send you as an ambassador representing me somewhere else. Minimum I need to know is you're an honest and upright person. You will represent me in the best way when Allah
Since someone, he has to be known as honest and upright, truthful Asad. Amin was the low carb or the names that Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, used to be known by before prophethood.
From before prophethood he was known as the truthful one, in the whole of Makkah, there were a lot of people and all of them had different characteristics and different habits. And you know what
Subhan Allah Hara Bill Allah mean, you have this man who was known as the truthful one. You guys want to see the truth for one day he is you want to see the honest one amongst us. There he is. So much so when they had major issues, he was a young man, they used to call him come and help us to solve this matter. salAllahu alayhi wasallam my brothers and sisters,
if he really plays the most important role in your life, every time you hear his name, don't be ashamed or afraid to fulfill your duty. When you hear Mohammed you must say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with an audible voice say it, no problem. It will help you it will help your growth and connection with Allah.
In fact, Nabina Muhammad Salah Salem himself says, Whoever hears my name and does not say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the one at loss.
He is the one that loss whoever hears
my name, and does not say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the one that loss
Subhanallah look at how Allah wants us to respect the man. Because without that respect, you won't even listen to the message.
So nowadays, people start picking on things today. I'm talking of 14 150 years later, some people say oh, he married a very young girl. Oh, he did this. Or he did that. I tell you, the enemies and the kuffaar. At the time that he lived in Makkah. They themselves did not pick on those things they picked on everything they could. They never ever mentioned some of the points that people are mentioning now. 1500 years later. Do you know why? These points are only mentioned out of hatred? That's all and they are not even points? They are matters that are disputed. You asked me how old was Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu I will tell you I do not know and I do not need to know finished.
It's not going to stop me or grant me entry into Janna where I and Allah is not going to ask me before you go to paradise. I want you to tell me how old was our Isha and what is it? There is a difference of opinion among the scholars very strong. Some say she was 18. Some say 16. Some say she was younger? Some go very young. Who knows? Allah knows. Is it anything that is Maluma? Mina Dini with the Rura? Is it anything that is necessary to know for you to be a Muslim? The answer is no. So leave it out. I don't need to know. Someone asked me how old was she? I said, You know what? It's an irrelevant question. Thank you.
It's okay. There is a debate you really want to know about it. But if you are going to come up with hate as a result of that, you need to know the enemies at the time. They hated him the most because he was there.
Why did they hate him? They clearly said because if we follow Him, we are going to lose our our chair, you know, what is the chair the authority?
So they said no, he's a madman. He's a womanizer, stuff that Allah they said he will after money after power. All of that was refuted completely. Did they ever raise an issue about our insha Allah Juana? Not at all nowhere near?
Nowhere near they never ever raised because it was never an issue. For someone to raise it years later. It means they just have hate. That's all. Go and study the man's life look as a Muslim. He plays the most important role in my life and yours. Guess what? I want to be like him I want to try and look like him. I want to try and dress like him. I want to try and eat like him. I want to try and talk like him. I want to try and walk like him. I want to try and behave like him. I want to try and pray like him. I want to try and fast like him when I do my heart. I will do it the way he did.
When I'm giving charities I will do it the way he taught. I would like to have my entire life similar to the way he did it. Why not? That is love. That is love.
I promise you my brothers and sisters today on Earth. We have people who are considered heroes and heroines right? They say who is your hero? They will show you an actor. They will show you a footballer. They will show you someone this way that way.
Sometimes without them showing you you already know this guy is a fan of this person. How do you know because the way he cut his hair is exactly how that guy cut his hair or his T shirt has the name at the back. You understand what I'm saying? You follow a football club you are crazy about the football club. You don't need to tell the world you are crazy. They can see it on you you ever shared why you love the club? You love the people? When you're a Muslim? They should see it as soon as they look at your face. They must know that man's crazy about the Prophet Muhammad Salah How do you know? Look at how he looks. Look at how he talks. Look at how he walks. Look at how he dresses
look at how he behaves. Look at everything. It is exactly like that man. Allahu Akbar.
Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Don't be ashamed to change your life.
Others have changed their lives to behave like people who are probably scum on Earth. They are depressed they only sleep with medication but you don't know.
And we follow and how do we follow we move like them we talk like them Aston Villa we do haram like them, we dance like them. We we spend so much time to learn the dances and the moves. You sit and watch the kids. They say 72 moves you need to learn why when you want to dance like so. And so they will learn 144 moves not only 72
just to move, move this way and move that way. My brother, my sister, the one whose teachings will take you to Jana? Can you not learn something from there and empower yourself change your life. So when someone sees you from far they will say that men's a Muslim? That woman's are Muslim. Ah. So what if they don't like you? It's okay. They might support Liverpool and you support Manchester big deal. Am I right or wrong? Sorry, that's just an example. You know.
So I'm a Muslim, the other ones not some people like some people don't like when people do not like Islam, and you are going to hide the fact that you're a Muslim. When are they going to see good people who are Muslims, so don't hide. So what if they don't like you must change that. By behaving well by treating them nice by being honest and upright by speaking properly by doing good business deals. By turning to the Sunnah of Nabina Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam in the true sense, when they interact with you first time they hate you second time they hate you a little bit less. Third time they begin to love you fourth time they realize you're a brilliant person, fifth time they cannot do
an out you sixth time they are Muslims.
Right. But if you are going to hide that you're a Muslim because you are ashamed that people don't like the Muslims, you are at loss and everyone around you is at a loss and they will ask you on the Day of Judgment.
I mixed with you so many times you never introduced me to Muhammad Salla Allahu Akbar, Allahu Allahu Allah. We are Muslims. Introduce your friends to your best friend, who's your best friend supposed to be the be Mohamed salah. Today we sit and we pay lip service to this man Nabina Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, I asked you at the beginning. Who is he to you? You know who he is to some people. Robbie and our comes finished they will. They will pretend like they are so close to the prophet but they are drinking. They are gambling. They are committing adultery. They do haram every single day. But they just come up and they will
pretend like you know what I care for the prophets. What do you okay? Is he really the most important person in your life? It's like a man who tells his wife I love you. I love you. I love you. But he's committing adultery every day. What Love Is that?
When she catches you, you're in trouble. Right? We are so scared we will hide doing our things quietly. You scare the who? This woman She mustn't see what's going on. Woman You are lying about the relationship. You know what? Man is professional in lying about relationships. Professional, we lie about our relationship but I tell you what, we talk about it so that we can change it let's be genuine inshallah.
Is it difficult, not difficult, be genuine. Allah will grant you the best. Change your life today change it.
We are standing in this beautiful Masjid trust me.
Allah gives us opportunity to change our lives. Allah gives us a message.
Allah gives us a chance and two and three and four chances, but your chances and mine are limited after that other comes you know what these other people don't like to talk about it? Or that means Allah says you know what? I'm going to give you 5000 chances. After that I'll
You had one chance to chance three chance if your son or daughter your own son or daughter breaks a glass at home, you say, Don't worry.
Don't worry, no problem so long as you are not hurt. It's okay. Right? I love my son. Next days broke a glass say hey, don't worry.
You know it's okay. So long as you third day break glass. Hey, be a little bit careful. Don't break glass. Fourth day why everyday you are breaking glass first day back one clap, right?
Everyday you are breaking glass.
You understand what I'm saying? How many chances you gave your son not more than five. Same thing five times you are angry you upset?
Obviously I don't mean go home and slap your child. I'm only giving you an example. Just for you to understand you will minimum you will be irritated. Someone might say you are promoting corporal punishment. No, I'm not.
Allah says I will give you 5000 chances after that it's finished. It's over. No more chance. Then when the other comes we say Oh Allah, why is this punishment coming? Allah says But I gave you 5000 chances. One came to came every Friday every day, every moment everything we showed you what we did to other people, we showed you what was happening around you. We kept on reminding you come back. We kept on reminding you stop your bed. We kept on reminding you stop the gambling stop drinking stop the intoxicants. Stop the adultery stop the stop. We kept reminding you over and over and over and over again. And you did not take heed. You would get so angry with someone who you gave five chances
only we gave you 5000 Chances are you want us not to get angry. Come on, come on. Allah is merciful the Mercy of Allah. He gives you more chances than anyone can ever give you but after that something has to happen. That's why we are here today. What you are listening to was not supposed to miss your ears. This message is for me too. I'm one of you. I'm your brother. I need the reminder to I'm a human.
While I'm talking I'm also going to be asked you stood up and you said what about you? Yes. So the same applies to all of us Inshallah, we can have a beautiful connection with Allah, my brothers and sisters.
As I end my short reminder here today
I want to invite you
I see the faces beautiful May Allah bless you all.
If I were to tell you that please come to my house for biryani after Jumeirah would you not be excited?

Oh my worshipers come through come
Allah will bless you. The only way to true contentment and success is the way of the Prophet Muhammad Sarasa there is no other way they try they go and check them. Go and check them. If you if you have dunya but you don't have Deen you have zero
and if you have Deen but you don't have dunya you can work for dunya a little bit what you need while you are here but still you have you are wealthy person why? Because I get her for Salah to info
the Hadith says ricotta and February Hiram minute dunya wa mafia. The two sunnah of Fajr are more valuable than the whole world and whatever it has
the two sunnah of Fajr are more valuable than the whole world and whatever it has, why there is a material value attached to two units of sunnah for Fajr.
When you wake up early and you make Hulu and you want to worship Allah, there is no no thing on earth that can come close to the contentment.
that you will feel you feel happy. Today I made Salat al Fajr with Gemma, I'm super excited. I feel so happy. So my brothers and sisters remember this. And being Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent in order to be followed and all the messages were sent in order to be followed, let's follow
so that if people recognize us as good Muslims from the very beginning,
when they see us, then we will be recognized as Muslims in the hereafter to
you hiding and ducking and diving.
You know, I think of one quick example.
There was a man I met and he said, you know, you bearded guys you know, they talk like this, you beat the guys, you give Islam a bad name. I said, Well, you better start giving it a good name then isn't it? You understand what I'm saying?
You say we are giving Islam a bad name will use can start giving it a good name. They don't even know that you're a Muslim. That's the question. Namely, how can you say that I go to the masjid I say they don't know you go to the masjid do they? But with me from far they will see me they'll say that's a Muslim guy. I hate him. No problem. So I'll greet him. How are you? Good morning.
They look the sky actually smiles next day. I see Good morning. How are everything okay, so yes, fine. Ah, good morning. Third time I see you must be some good thing here happening you know, then they start cracking they say no, he's a normal human being because they think you're not normal first. Then you see them a fourth time Allah will give you a chance. Minimum they start looking at these guys are okay people they start researching about Islam. What happened? The heart is softened.
Allah softens the hearts but Allah used you and me. But if you are going to hide your Islam,
no one knows. You. You only have yourself to don't hide it. So never mind if you pay a price for it. They pay the price from the very beginning. Allah says in the Quran
in Alladhina Jomo con hoomin alladhina amanu. We have Hacohen. The criminals the sinners, they always used to laugh at the believers.
Laugh at the believers make a mockery of them. Allah says no problem A believer is not bothered by who laughs He knows Allah is with me. What do you want? Allah is with me not with you who is the real one to be to be laughing. So that's why Allah says in the Hereafter, familia woman Lavina Manu monomial conferring Ohakune Allah
on Allah says the believers on that day of Yama will be relaxing on their so fast you know, relaxing on your recliner, and they will be the ones laughing
who's laughing now Masha Allah, may Allah Almighty grant us goodness and ease and may Allah bless you all really? I feel very honored to be standing here in this beautiful Masjid May Allah accept it from all of you. Lovely crowds of brothers and sisters and may Allah keep us all steadfast starting with myself, and then all of us are Kulu Kohli ha SallAllahu wasallam Allah and Amina
