Hello, Sunday was sunny Mubarak adesina, Mohammed Radha It

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


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

a lot than it would have been fine. 10 hours even

00:00:20 --> 00:00:23

back, especially brothers and sisters.

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

First of all,

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

it is a honor, a pleasure to be here in this Masjid Jamaica Muslim Center,

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

which is not in Jamaica. That's another country

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


00:00:47 --> 00:01:04

South America, but in Queens, this is my third visit to New York. Last year, I came at the same time and the year before at the same time. Now I know all the areas Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, I know the areas now because of going this way, this way. So

00:01:05 --> 00:01:15

it's a great honor for me to be here. I am thankful to the masjid committee and organization, the brother who invited me

00:01:17 --> 00:01:30

to Sheffield about everybody and all of you for coming today. And taking out your precious time on a Sunday evening to talk about a very important topic. And I want to kind of gloss over some amazing things that

00:01:31 --> 00:01:47

our share mentioned about one of my teachers, we call him shadow Islam of the government money. Love is actually coming to the United Kingdom tomorrow. I am landing in London at the same time and I'm really looking forward to going back away from America here. So

00:01:48 --> 00:02:03

I want to tie some things to him because he meant he was mentioned. That wasn't my intention. The topic is prophetic m empathy. A lot of people say empathy. What is empathy?

00:02:04 --> 00:02:50

empathy means many different things about a lot of messages a lot lower in the center. His character is Shama is colocasia. Rama is Mercy's confession. And I'm going to talk about this in different aspects of his life with his family, with his wife and his children, with his fellow Muslims, with his enemies with animals. And I'm going to talk about all of this. But if you summarize all these characteristics and qualities when we say empathy, or compassion, everything allows messengers, a lover or even send them if you want to summarize, if someone says, oh, Muslim, you're a Muslim, your messenger is Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam summarized in one word, one, one word, summarize who he was.

00:02:52 --> 00:03:04

We know he's a prophet, so we don't have to mention that. But in his character, he was a prophet of Allah Rasool Allah, Allah, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the last messenger caught the movie.

00:03:06 --> 00:03:21

But in terms of his character, His love, His hope, his characteristics, summarize given us the hellos or the summary summarize his character in one word.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:25


00:03:28 --> 00:03:29

He was a role model.

00:03:32 --> 00:03:33

He was messy. Yes.

00:03:36 --> 00:03:36

He was

00:03:37 --> 00:03:38

also part of this.

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


00:03:47 --> 00:03:54

All of these things, of course, are there. We can't say that. I'm not saying that you can't say that. You can say that. He said in number.

00:03:56 --> 00:04:26

I am a mercy that is given to you. But all of this goes to one amazing characteristic and that is this highest characteristic that is his highest macom the greatest McCollum that Allah has given him. Imagine this is Rasulullah Inaba, muslimeen, ameerul, momineen, the leader of mankind, when he was when in his time he was the immediate the head of the government. He is a father is a husband, he is the nurse of the Prophet has called the whole

00:04:27 --> 00:04:40

concern of the whole home on his mind. He has concern of everybody he, he has concerned for the whole of humanity, the most busy person that you can think and imagine on planet Earth.

00:04:41 --> 00:04:59

No shelter no Mr. No scholar, No, nobody can even come close to him. No Sahabi nobody, no great celebrity man can come close to his not even to the footsteps that he walks or not even equal to the soil that is under his feet. This is the greatest of mankind. See you

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

But his highest motto was that he was a slave.

00:05:07 --> 00:05:09

That's what made him big.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:18

He will be a slave would, you know seriously, we are so far away from mlsa we all of us,

00:05:19 --> 00:05:35

everybody included, I don't want to say specifically these people are not all of us as a Muslim Ummah, in our way of living, we are so distant and so far away from the way the standard, the living of the messengers and

00:05:37 --> 00:05:44

how was imagined this is? He could have had everything, though. How much did he eat and how much to eat?

00:05:45 --> 00:06:30

How much do we eat? And how much did he eat? How is his living standard? How was our living standard? Our said to him angel came we can make the mountain into gold. He chose poverty. He chose slavery. Actually, Allah said to him, do you want to be a prophet and an advocate? Or do you want to be a prophet and a king? Because there were prophets before who were killed. Solomon arisa was a king, as well as a prophet, angels Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam came to us through the loss of a loved one to cinema and said, this is a choice which one do you want to choose? And then gave the gesture to him but choose the Buddha and that fitted with his characteristics with his nature.

00:06:31 --> 00:06:45

And he says in number an OB disease and I am a slave or Kuru, Kuru I eat like a slave. He is a Judicial Committee, he stood up, I sit like a slave sit when he would sit. This is how

00:06:48 --> 00:06:51

the way we set o tivity level of

00:06:53 --> 00:06:59

humility and humbleness, never are going to be the Shema. And how would he walk.

00:07:00 --> 00:07:37

He's like walking as lowering his head. Nowadays, somebody knows to IR to the Koran. They they think the shape of the world. somebody knows how to resize good quality with voice, the shape of the time, someone's a shares and moves to whoever any small something someone goes in tomorrow tumbling becomes a meal and that's it. I have like ruling the world. Anything people have this Eagle issue which is far distance or to be frank distance away from the character of the messengers of Allah when you send them. What made him big was his humility. He never thought nothing of himself, you know, the Sahaba of the love.

00:07:38 --> 00:07:39

In the beginning,

00:07:41 --> 00:07:50

didn't even have this special place to sit on. He would sit in the middle of the companions and talk. And then the Sahaba had to tell him

00:07:51 --> 00:08:24

when someone comes they don't know who Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is they asked him like somebody came in Arabi came and he said, Who is the messenger amongst you? Who is he? Then they would say, original available new Turkey. This one in fair complexion leading hates the pillar. That's a hammer so laborious, and it was difficult for people to recognize it. So then upon the its insistence, that is Surah of the Sahaba near love, and whom the messenger sallallahu Sallam had a small number and pulpit made for him so that he could teach because so that people when they come, they listen to him, and it's not inconvenient.

00:08:25 --> 00:08:57

he disliked people to stand up for him, the Sahaba who used to stand up, there's rules of standing up for someone, there's it's permissible. Someone who dislikes someone who likes the people standing for you, it's hard to stand up for that person, someone who's not like that it is permissible. There's lots of rules about this and books that were written in the moment Oh, he has a whole booklet on this topic, beyond the nurse, but the messenger sort of love it was sort of he disliked people, when he would consider ways to set up he said, Don't send

00:08:59 --> 00:09:01

me another Sahaba companions.

00:09:03 --> 00:09:04

They would die.

00:09:06 --> 00:09:27

They would give them knives for him. Imagine what happens is that when he would come we had to literally put knives on our hearts not to stand up. We want to stand up this is our most beloved person ever. But because he said no, his convenience, his raw His suku His piece is in the fact that we don't start he doesn't like it.

00:09:29 --> 00:09:46

We don't want to stand up but they wouldn't stand up. He sits like a slave sits he eats like a slave eats. In the Shama you read when he would walk no two people used to walk behind no entourage. Today a celebrity comes in for 4400 people before him and 400 behind him. Not literally but

00:09:48 --> 00:09:59

people on the right and people on the left is like Kelowna, ketamine and a lot of what's happening and how many people and coming in cars and visiting and cars and all of these things. This is what I'm saying that I'm really serious about these big

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

This is so far distant away from

00:10:05 --> 00:10:06

way of life.

00:10:08 --> 00:10:45

And I'm not just talking about anybody who studies this not every aspect like I said, someone basic thing someone knows how to do a small talk a few words once in a while a few times learned a few things here and there and not everybody thinks like, I'm the great person now, you know, the ego. This is a human ego keba pride, arrogance, importance. Everyone has this animalistic trait and that's what it does here is one of the most important aspects of our Deen working on the heart. And Allah makes big people big because of the humidity. There's a hadith where the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Mundo the Prophet,

00:10:47 --> 00:11:31

whoever is humble for the sake of Allah with modest humility, that Allah subhanho wa Taala either elevates that person or these people who are great in the sight of a law as well as the sight of the people that always have humility and humbleness. However, there is a further Island it's humility is absolutely necessary obligatory upon every Muslim we have to work on our hearts. Remove pride, remove arrogance, remove, showing off remove ostentation, be a humble and gentle are the slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is an obligation of every Muslim. And this is why he was mentioning my teaching just one quality of my teaching, no one's talking about your cell number, of course, but as

00:11:31 --> 00:11:58

an example of the successes of his inheritance of his and there's so many people that have I have this quality after that, and the setup and the who and and many others, but people that we see in our lives. And this is someone I've seen very, very closely recommended many, many times. I've spent not too much time but as much as I could, someone who's on top of them. These are real scholars, you might see him walking on Jamaica street or wherever the street is called. And you won't even know who this person is. There's people who have seen him do it off of

00:12:00 --> 00:12:40

an old uncle. Nobody knows. Nobody recognizes him. He sits when he sits upside down to eat the way is eating as well. Like you know, really humble person. People don't recognize there you go. There's no one who never travels with 500 Kadima, mme and 200 Marines and 600 million other entourage is never travels alone, which is why your greatest hobby man is your wife. You know, the greatest Maria and Fatima people like to have millions of people, the greatest person, people don't have relationships with their wives. And then they just spend time with the whole world outside, traveling with your spouse, just as if you're a normal human being according to our last slave hood

00:12:40 --> 00:12:44

idea. That's why the greatest moments.

00:12:47 --> 00:12:54

This is something that I've talked about a few times, but it's really important that we bring this into our room. And that's

00:12:55 --> 00:12:58

why I say the greatest miracle is being

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

you know, the desert and mirage. So handily so the RMP laden villain mistreated harami Elon Musk, oxen and levy Baraka, how would you read

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

that verse?

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


00:13:16 --> 00:13:19

is talking about one of the greatest,

00:13:20 --> 00:13:38

one of the greatest episodes or incidents in the history of humanity, definitely the the spirit of the messengers of Allah itself. But if you look in the history of humanity, probably no other great occurrence, you can think of, maybe other than the birth itself of the messenger

00:13:40 --> 00:13:43

that happened in history, and then this is around marriage

00:13:47 --> 00:13:54

and marriage, this is such an important part of his

00:13:55 --> 00:14:01

his life. When he mentioned this, how do you describe superheroes and letting

00:14:03 --> 00:14:05

Glory be to the one allows

00:14:07 --> 00:14:12

a sort of be Abdi who took by night

00:14:13 --> 00:14:19

never said is assumed to be Rosolino b&b, you know, be whatever, whatever be

00:14:22 --> 00:14:23

the greatest person

00:14:24 --> 00:14:37

at this occasion, a lot chose to use the word. He took his slave because this is the highest law even the greatest McCollum for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was being a slave.

00:14:40 --> 00:14:50

And that's what we need to become. Being a slave to a lot of having. Having humility and being the heart of deep empathy is hidden as

00:14:51 --> 00:14:59

of late and minimalistic will have an irreversible upside I took him by night from messing around too much in the UK stop anyone travel be industrial

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

To use, you should try if you have time and if you have space and time and money, you should go and visit the third house is very important.

00:15:08 --> 00:15:17

Matter is the first how long the message of the messenger sallallahu. It was 70 Madina, munawwara is the second column. Third, how long is the mosquito saw?

00:15:18 --> 00:15:30

The whole area? sure some of you have been in trouble and if you haven't, please take time out and Goldie's is really, really important to visit those places Baraka, how long was blessed that homeland.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:38

So this was an aberration one of the things that comes to my mind when we are busy.

00:15:40 --> 00:15:47

Also, if this is a side point, the word arbitrary refers to a human being who was physical.

00:15:48 --> 00:16:23

We live in a time right now that people are being affected too much by modernism and by reformism. In England as well, we've got this great vision of you know, the small, small issues I tell the students forget all those small, small you pray this way or pray that way. And there's more than that more than Who cares? These are small issues whenever differences of opinion. This is part of our DNA of Terra, and we'll talk to you on that these are small, small issues our Deen is greater than fighting an album with more than here and amin and PSA and this in this moment, who cares about these issues? These are small, small issues.

00:16:24 --> 00:16:54

There's greater issues in the room right now, greater issues. There's people who are leaving Islam going to atheism. There are people who are not openly leaving Islam but they are denying and disagreeing with mainstream stablished laws of Islam that nobody challenged from the time of the messengers of Allah Islam tip today 1400 30 years maybe few here and there one Mark does allow somebody in the past

00:16:56 --> 00:17:25

established issues. to three weeks ago, one brother said to me that I believe that there's no real angels, and there's no shade on there, just like positive and negative vibes. There's no real must look. Shaytan is not someone that Allah created. It's just you know, when you have bad influence, or that touches on like everyone's a shaytani whoever gives you a bad influence, there's no release. And he says I this is how I believe and in the Quran, and this is that and you know, something someone told him something and angels as well, they're not real.

00:17:26 --> 00:17:34

Some people are denying that he sorry, Sam is going to return again, mainstream established nor since the time of a loss.

00:17:38 --> 00:17:43

And this is well, because you see, we are very influenced with what's politically correct.

00:17:45 --> 00:18:23

Why should we be influence with people around us and what they think Islam is a logical religion without a doubt. Islam makes sense. There is heckler there is wisdom behind every law of Islam. There's books written on this topic, why you do and the way you do this wisdom? Why you do. And the way you do it, there's hikma there's benefits, personal, societal and communal benefit. Every rule of Islam, there's a hikmah learn about us. But our acceptance is not based on us understanding, there's wisdom, but do we have brains to understand the wisdom or not? That's another question.

00:18:24 --> 00:18:56

There's wisdom. But we might not have brains at everyone's intellect and reason is different. One person is, according to whose reason so right now this is my Islamic sense of how Google was listening to some of our goals on a bra go all the way in the middle of the night and came back. There's Muslims about it, if you can call them Muslims, I don't want to start we don't like to play the cover game, because that's also very people, but people are denying that Islam actually took place, or it just happened. It was just a vision. Why was there a massive spike in the type of lesson

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

he was supposed to do? Because he is claiming that in the middle of the night,

00:19:05 --> 00:19:06

if you believe it,

00:19:08 --> 00:19:08


00:19:09 --> 00:19:13

you know, there's nothing far fetched from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:19:14 --> 00:19:37

You think of the How can you go and come back? It's not possible logically, of course, is not possible. Logically, this is not logic. This is no reason. This is submission. This is why in Revelation, this is when you your brain stops working. Logically, how can you prove this genealogical? How can you prove this Jana, logically, not everything in the world, it has to be some sort of submission in life.

00:19:38 --> 00:19:50

There has to be some sort of submission, and then logically your brain you might not accept it. So I was just saying here the word. That's my off topic, but I'm coming back to my topic. So Canada, the US are being I believe,

00:19:51 --> 00:19:59

he took his slave physically by his body, by his roof, with his soul with his body in so he

00:20:00 --> 00:20:15

Spirit in mind, it wasn't just a dream. He wasn't just leaving next to karma and he saw a dream, then what's the big deal between him and us? We dream everything. You know, you dream you're on the other side of the world every day. Half of you are in Bangladesh in the middle of the night, and then come back, you know, return 100

00:20:18 --> 00:20:41

Thank you. I was in that continent in the middle of the night, and I've come back and one $2.44 million in the middle of the night when someone's gone in the sun and the moon and come back. And what's the big deal? Then? Is it the biggest incident is not the biggest incident. Dreams are dreams. Dreams are small issues. Why make dreams? Right? It's nothing people dream about everything. This person dreamed that he got married and had 15 children and everything and in the morning woke up where are my children.

00:20:45 --> 00:20:55

So it's not a dream. It was physical Mirage, ascension of God took him on the rock and took him to the heavens and even the prophets,

00:20:56 --> 00:21:28

I believe is a physical person. So anyway, going back to this that a lot of messengers a lover and he will send them his greatest quality. His greatest condition is oh Buddha, sleep good. He chose to be the slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala This was his greatest quality from all the characteristics from all the characteristics, his humility, his bravado, the way you would walk and the way you talk the way you show empathy to people, the way he would be

00:21:29 --> 00:21:42

the way you would converse with people, if you read the shamal of the messenger sort of Bob Marley was said, when he would speak to somebody, you would give them full attention, someone comes to speak to you, you would turn you want to just like

00:21:43 --> 00:21:45

give them full attention.

00:21:46 --> 00:22:36

This is because he he considers the other person to be important. And this is why this takes us to this this other quality or these two qualities, which are very important, which every single Muslim must have. One is having Rama mercy in the heart for the whole of the creation of a lot. And number two, having this quality of serving, serving the whole of the creation of these two things are very important, unless somebody said You know, one or two of you said that documentaries are the reason this is part the main title is Odia. But under that is either when he actually said in

00:22:39 --> 00:22:42

Indeed, I have a mercy that is gifted to

00:22:43 --> 00:22:45

the messages that he was sending, what did he say?

00:22:47 --> 00:22:50

I am a mercy gifted to you What does that mean?

00:22:51 --> 00:22:52

Who is the giver of the gift

00:22:54 --> 00:22:57

giver of the gift. You know when someone gives something to someone,

00:22:59 --> 00:23:16

you have three parties together giver of the gift, the receiver of the gift and the gift itself. Who gave the gift Allah who is taking the gift us and the gift is a was a message you send them he said this is in

00:23:19 --> 00:23:31

tune, move. The word modalities from the word, the HIPAA. I am Laura that is gifted to Allah Subhana Allah guide and gave me gave me as a gift to you. And that's why I was able

00:23:35 --> 00:23:39

to Korean elsewhere. This Hadith is known as what we call

00:23:41 --> 00:23:43

some of the scholars students will know

00:23:45 --> 00:23:47

the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sending it

00:23:53 --> 00:23:53


00:23:56 --> 00:23:57

sama you know what

00:23:58 --> 00:24:02

it means this is also another part of our great Islamic tradition.

00:24:03 --> 00:24:13

You know, our scholars of Hadith from the earlier times there was so particular in, in preserving everything about the Hadith and the sooner the zero

00:24:16 --> 00:24:47

but we have the we have this tradition of what we call that something's the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did was he was saying that the next person did the same thing. The third person did the same thing and it carried on until today. So like, muscle cell means continuation messages and a lot of ideas and have said to one sahadi His name is wild in German, or the a lot more animals and Yama O'Meara in need of a booger. Indeed, I love you for

00:24:49 --> 00:24:55

them therefore because of this love you and give you advice say after every Sala ladies

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


00:25:00 --> 00:25:08

I got it. Wow. That was handy when he was teaching his students. He said to him, I have to

00:25:09 --> 00:25:27

say this. And then he said to his students in need of a booger. Indeed, I love you. So say up to every salon, when his student was teaching his students, his record related to hygiene, and then he said, Indeed, I have love for you. So therefore say after every salon,

00:25:28 --> 00:25:43

then the next person and the next person until today, we have shoe. This there's about 45 people, it's a continuation. This is called Hollywood producers. And it was a continuation with every person saying I love you, along with the heavy.

00:25:44 --> 00:25:46

You have had either muscle cell, Bill,

00:25:48 --> 00:26:24

messenger, sallAllahu wasallam, one Saturday. And once he was saying it after the holidays, he put his hand on his beard. And he said, I'm going to be at your show he was having related daddies to his students, he put his hand on his beard as well. Because he said he was shoveling and the next person next person, every person tend to date we have two people go and get this received this each other it's about those blessings, like benefits is like you get connected to achieve. It's not knowledge itself, but there's blessings in it. And then you have so many different types of muscles or not, this 112 or more books have been written on this topic where there's different types of

00:26:24 --> 00:26:45

results. The messenger sallallahu wasallam, once he put his hand on his head, and he said something companion, when he said this heading to the student, he puts his hand on his head, everybody, sometimes it goes all the way to the lesson. Sometimes it goes to like this hobby or that robbery, sometimes three quarters of the chain. Everyone's doing this in the hands on the head and

00:26:47 --> 00:26:51

there's so many different practices that are carried out.

00:26:58 --> 00:27:00

So different types of Muslims.

00:27:01 --> 00:27:11

Yes, putting the hand on the head holding the beard saying something standing up. This one could have been Lusaka

00:27:14 --> 00:27:16

until wherever the chain went to

00:27:18 --> 00:27:25

he shook the hand. So right now the teacher the shape will relate to you and then you go to the shape of you says friendly will

00:27:30 --> 00:27:37

shake my hands with the hands with which you shook the hands of the ocean. And that person said that tip all the way to

00:27:39 --> 00:27:40

the hands of the messenger

00:27:44 --> 00:28:14

I never touched anything earlier McAfee Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam his hand was the most tender and soft hands. So you have there's no setup. There's actually even some, you know, quite lovely ones like intriguing one's own safety ones but it doesn't go all the way to the semi mom like this new mom shelf. He asked him once How old are you nomadic said my business. When the mom showed me was teaching his students said, Stan, what's your age? He said

00:28:15 --> 00:28:43

my new business for indies American American you could do your own because I had my teacher medic say, wait a minute. This is when I asked. Then when you match every student who was teaching his students. They asked him Oh chef who started washing he said my own business provider my teacher chef I say that with his teacher him America when he asked he said manual this till today there's a shell in Medina menorah today, I received this. One of my friends, he went to see him and he said OSHA was you he said my new business.

00:28:47 --> 00:29:36

This is a deal. But it's trimmomatic there's so many different things like this, which is amazing the news they preserve these kinds of things. So one of these muslin salad is what we call Hannibal muscles and Bill over here. When the student learns Hadith from his teacher, this is the first Hadith that is taught before anybody after Quran if you study the first study that is taught is called a D which is continued with the idea of being the first that is taught or worriers over heading before any honey This is a famous one every teacher every single candidate and every whichever part of the world whether subcontinent, India, Pakistan or whether in the Arab world not

00:29:36 --> 00:29:46

Cortina Syria, Jordan, Yemen, Morocco, Egypt, wherever. So anyway, this is unanimously the whole world. Every share of it, they know this is called evolution.

00:29:48 --> 00:29:54

And this goes all the way back to it isn't all the way back to the Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, but it goes back to Sophia.

00:29:58 --> 00:30:00

Who was who taught his students

00:30:00 --> 00:30:08

As the first study, what is this one study? Imagine? first lesson being given to the student, the hairy

00:30:10 --> 00:30:10


00:30:12 --> 00:30:20

There are the people who are grappling their heart, the ones who have mercy in their hearts, the man who lost,

00:30:21 --> 00:30:23

he has mercy on them.

00:30:26 --> 00:31:05

If you have mercy on the creation of Allah, have mercy on the people of the earth of Allah will have mercy on you. This is the first edition that is being taught to Muslims, that if you want this late, would you see these are the two, the summary is this, I want us to take something with us. But it was mentioned is for practice, the end of summarize, and I might ask some questions. So I have a test an exam. So you know, don't run away. Because you might think that Oh, it's going to be too many questions. But the summary is this basically that's we need to have obedia How do we ever we're, number one, have mercy in the heart and number two, which I'm going to talk about, which is

00:31:05 --> 00:31:18

via Hadith. So I'm just talking about these two aspects of God and the two things, right law and civil law. Okay, so I started with udia, now I've gone to drachma, then I've come to

00:31:19 --> 00:31:23

this Rama, the messenger, sallAllahu, wasallam, compassion,

00:31:24 --> 00:31:27

we have to create this in our hearts.

00:31:28 --> 00:31:37

This compassion is something we some people are born with. And some people are not born with, some are born with much and some are less, not just

00:31:40 --> 00:32:02

that good character. You're either born with it or you have to acquire it. And those who are not born with it. They can't say it's not fair because this is the Taksim of Allah Allah gives different things to different people. Some people are born mad and crazy and angry. They need anger management treatment they just born very angry and someone's born like we say in England cool as a cucumber.

00:32:04 --> 00:32:08

Okay, we have the cool will come Connect, which is nothing.

00:32:09 --> 00:32:19

Some people are just born naturally. Now the one who is born with anger concept is not fair if I get angry and if I punch someone and that's not fair because

00:32:21 --> 00:32:54

this is your test. This is your wage rent agenda. Let's see if you can work on your anger and work on it and do suburban Asians and fight turnouts and fight your song. This is your test. Yes, this other friend of yours he doesn't have this test. But in another part of life, he might have a test that you don't have a test of his his sexual desire and lust is extreme to the top of you know that whatever level and you don't have that so for him to stay away from Xena from lustful things is very, very difficult for you. It's very easy, you know, it's easy if you don't have that kind of desire. Everyone is

00:32:55 --> 00:33:02

so good character as well. As it says, good character o'clock. You're either born with it.

00:33:03 --> 00:33:43

Or you have to acquire it. If you're not born with it. We have to work on it. Right no mercy if someone's done something like gentlemen, very, very merciful, this unique character, just really, really loving, caring, which is how they you know, they see the hero, someone you know got Shaheed somewhere or someone in, you know, Burma or somewhere something happened. And suddenly they just shed tears and they'll cry. And they just have very soft charts. And some of us are like someone like me with a harsh heart is like, you can see, sometimes someone's dead on the middle of the road. And we just drive by there was a YouTube clip somewhere that this person could run around a little

00:33:43 --> 00:33:45

by a car and like he was leaving dying. And

00:33:51 --> 00:33:59

then finally after about 10 minutes somebody actually wanted to see that was happening. The one with mercy is hard. If you see someone on the middle of the road that they

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

there what the car has broken down.

00:34:05 --> 00:34:10

And Muslim would stop the car. We actually I remember we did I talked about this somewhere in America.

00:34:13 --> 00:34:16

Last year, the year before, I don't know which part of America by now is in America

00:34:17 --> 00:34:56

that I spoke about this topic, not this topic, but this part. And I mentioned in my talk that a good Muslim is someone that if you see someone stranded, Muslim or non Muslim, you don't just drive by you stop everything. Okay? I know we live in a time where people have all these, you know, they can make phone calls and they can get emergency help. Okay, if you think most likely don't have phone, you don't have to stop. But if you think this person needs like in the middle of the night and they might be struggling or they're looking for someone to help them. A good Muslim will stop. I mentioned that in my talk. And then after the talk, I think we were going somewhere New York or

00:34:56 --> 00:34:59

Chicago remember where but we are going somewhere and we saw

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

College trended It was like, you know on top of grass what are some My dad was driving driving the Capitol and ran around. And it was me and another couple of brothers from here. I said, Look, this is a lesson will you say practice let's see if you practice so it was giving us an opportunity to practice we came out and we push this car out to him a bit and he was happy and then his car moved.

00:35:25 --> 00:35:31

This is what a Muslim does in the heart immersing even with animals.

00:35:32 --> 00:35:43

Sometimes we are gentle by nature that if we're not then we have to create this message are you sending was so merciful that he could not even see an animal. There was one person

00:35:44 --> 00:36:19

who was sat on his animal horse or camel and just sitting and talking to somebody else, the messengers or libraries and looked at him and he said, What are you doing? Why are you inconveniencing or harming this creation of a lot you will have to give hisab and account for this on your own if you need to have a 10 minute conversation get off the animal Let's go and see our subcontinent countries or the Arab world or these countries people you know hates the animals as though they're like they have no soul they they they are on the donkey and almost eating

00:36:22 --> 00:36:25

animals like we think they have nothing no so

00:36:26 --> 00:36:36

then we think Who are these animal rights activists who want to become vegetarians because they see all of this treating animals well is a further aim

00:36:38 --> 00:36:40

but we don't treat animals no benefits

00:36:41 --> 00:36:42

in our culture

00:36:50 --> 00:37:06

when you kill animals when you slaughter even that make sure you do it well. There was one companion he was slaughtering one animal in front of another animal rescue said a lot of money has been said don't * water don't ever have one animal in front of the other animal.

00:37:08 --> 00:37:11

You've to redo and the motor motor team

00:37:13 --> 00:37:19

do you want to give it to deaths it's already dead by looking at you kidding

00:37:22 --> 00:38:07

we don't have this in our hearts you know if you if we have this you can literally see Have you ever seen I've been to a slaughterhouse men have been to many slaughterhouses but once again went to a slaughterhouse just to see how chicken are slaughtered. They all of them are coming you know in line. You if we have a small amount of like concern or perception or a bit of heart, you can easily see you know, I was looking at those animals those chicken faces, honestly, these chicken of Allah, these creation of frighten you see the face? Imagine all of us we are human beings. We all have here, one by one g d dt, head chopped off chopped off. That was gone. Excellent God ongoing. They

00:38:07 --> 00:38:11

also have sold an LOI. Just imagine if we were in that lane.

00:38:13 --> 00:38:17

We would have a heartbeat. That doesn't mean his house rotates around allows it because inside especially

00:38:18 --> 00:38:34

but Islam has put so many laws about animal treatment. Don't sharpen the knife in front of the animal. Don't kill one animal in front of the animal. Don't pull the animal. Look after the animal. The messenger sallallahu Sallam said he was

00:38:37 --> 00:38:46

even more gentle gela fear of law regarding his margin. These animals are not able to speak

00:38:50 --> 00:39:03

regarding these animals that are not able to speak, just because they can't say anything. They can't tell you Oh, don't come and slaughter me or don't kill me or don't treat me Don't put me put a human being say don't put me animal. That's it.

00:39:07 --> 00:39:15

Fear of law. You will be questioned on the way you judge Danny 100 in the Western countries people have been most

00:39:16 --> 00:39:47

civilized let's go to our countries. They think it was worth nothing. And in some places, even human beings, they treat human beings like animals. Well, animals should be treated really, really well for the animals, even other human beings. Because we don't have this document is compassion is mercy the heart. This is what the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was full of mercy. If you want the mercy of law, we need to show the mercy to others. mela, your hand. Your hand

00:39:48 --> 00:39:50

was once somebody who

00:39:52 --> 00:39:59

next to the domestication of art instead of once kissed his grandson has a lot to say

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

public speaking.

00:40:02 --> 00:40:07

I have 10 of these but international

00:40:09 --> 00:40:17

but I don't kiss any of these and no one said in another time that we don't get we see up senior children we don't kiss our children the messages on a walk

00:40:18 --> 00:41:02

around the one who doesn't show compassion will not be shown compassion in another rewire when somebody said this he said our omnikey another our love and recommend them in public. So Michael, what can I do if Allah has taken away compassion from your heart? That's your problem. We have Rama who kisses children. This is a signal that was missing a little over instead of I'm sure you guys have this sooner if you have small children, kiss them, kiss them on the forehead. Once somebody came to the messenger sallallahu Sallam said I have a harsh heart. I'm very aggressive, I get very angry. Give me some remedy or tip. How can I become self taught? He said one of the ways of becoming

00:41:02 --> 00:41:10

self harmed in this place your hands always on the heads of the team, the office. Look at orphans four year old five year olds.

00:41:11 --> 00:41:29

This is the remedy that the messenger sallallahu Sallam mentioned to remove sheep cattle harshness to the heart. So even with animals treating animals, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very particular. The second part of this is hidden. Sorry, second part of it is hidden.

00:41:31 --> 00:41:35

Hidden serving humanity is an amazing

00:41:37 --> 00:41:39

amazing quality round

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

the shoe.

00:41:43 --> 00:42:02

Money mentioned in one of his books, that if you want the greatest, the greatest rank you want for the greatest profession, the profession. The best profession in life is the professional criminal behavior. This is a profession every other profession.

00:42:03 --> 00:42:06

In the world nowadays, people want to be the

00:42:07 --> 00:42:36

chairman to be head don't want to be president or to be prime minister. They want to be there everyone, politics vote for me, that person is bad vote for me. I'm the Vice President and the Vice Prime Minister. The whole democratic system is based on it's only been the best and it's all about ego. Put other people down Put yourself up that goes against the whole Islamic concept of saying I'm nothing and everyone else's something Islamic concept was I have nothing. This was better than me. This was better than me. I have nothing. We don't have. We consider other people.

00:42:37 --> 00:42:49

One of the shell said that I consider every human being Muslim and non Muslim to be better than the Muslim to develop the now and non Muslim to be better than me potentially. Harlan

00:42:50 --> 00:42:57

who knows how I will end with him or not, and who knows how he will never Don't look down on anybody.

00:42:58 --> 00:43:09

You know, we are seeing the beginning we do appear of Islam and we just start looking down this is a coffee or this will not be drinks alcohol, who knows this alcoholic person will enter agenda before us.

00:43:10 --> 00:43:28

You know when we are giving service when we are even doing advising? We don't advise because we are better. And inshallah I hope I'm not thinking I'm better than you. I'm worse than all of you and I need this advice myself. But when we're advising as well advising,

00:43:29 --> 00:43:30

it's not because what

00:43:31 --> 00:43:45

the person thinks he's better. The prophets never put that this harbor never thought that they put their heart give an example, you know, the example is, imagine a king employs you to teach his son some English.

00:43:46 --> 00:43:51

Yeah, he will chop the king's child, the prince,

00:43:52 --> 00:44:07

you are the teacher of his hide his pain, a lot of money. You have to go to the palace of the king or the queen or the president or whatever he or she and you have to teach the prince, whatever.

00:44:09 --> 00:44:11

Teach him some swimming skills or English whatever.

00:44:13 --> 00:44:54

This is a potential King. Why are you teaching you might have to even be a bit angry sometimes. If you're a star, you might have to be a bit angrier, because it's for his benefit. You might have said Oh no, no, this is not the way you have to do this. Because this is what the king wants from you so that his son learns what he wants him to learn. But for one moment, do you think you're better than the prince? Never you think you know what i'm just teaching after about 10 years? Hope he even remembers me when he becomes a king. I don't know I might be somewhere. Hopefully I might remember when you were a child King night which is really, maybe you might say okay, let's give him something

00:44:55 --> 00:44:58

for not even one moment you think you're better

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


00:45:00 --> 00:45:12

As a teacher, as a mom, wherever anyone in the world or outside the world, in the world matters or Islamic countries, wherever, in any situation, the person must think he is.

00:45:14 --> 00:45:28

The one who is advising is like the prince, the whole of the creation of a lot of the princes of love. They don't believe in sons of God, of course, but I'm saying this is the creation of this actually are the messengers of Allah. He said,

00:45:38 --> 00:46:02

the whole of the creation belongs to a law. That's why the most beloved to Allah is the one who is good to his creation. You know, if I make something, it's always good to my children. I like the person. If you be nice to my children, I like that person. The whole creation is allows creation, Allah loves his creation. So when we love the creation of a school, he's been nice to my creation.

00:46:03 --> 00:46:10

never consider yourself or ourselves to be better than anybody if someone is sinful. We have hatred, or

00:46:12 --> 00:46:20

we have hatred, dislike or sin. For for the sin manana, sinful person. This is a principle of Islam, which for many of us,

00:46:22 --> 00:46:49

we don't hate the sinner. No matter how sinful the person is, we actually think he could possibly most likely enter agenda much before me, never have enough hate or dislike even a god. Yes, we dislike the product or not. We dislike sin, not the sinner. We just like stealing. We're not the stealer. We just like alcohol drinking, but not the alcoholic.

00:46:50 --> 00:46:56

They need compassion and mercy when we talk to them. We need to tell them that you are much better than me.

00:46:57 --> 00:47:08

I am just you know, giving you some advice, but you are better than me. So this is what I was saying. The chef was saying that every profession and amending every professional tried.

00:47:09 --> 00:47:24

Every professional being Head of State, every profession. There's problems. You know what the problems are? people fight for it. People are jealous. When you take the profession, people there's competition

00:47:25 --> 00:47:41

is competition number one. That's jealousy. Number two, number three, when you get that profession, so many people want to take you away from that profession. Number four, you get enemies as well. Also problems there's only one profession in the world. The best profession

00:47:43 --> 00:47:46

in which there is no competition

00:47:47 --> 00:47:54

in which nobody is going to be jealous. And which nobody wants to take you away. You can stay every other profession you get

00:47:56 --> 00:47:58

expelled, or what do you call it? You'll be

00:47:59 --> 00:48:02

fired. Either fight everything every profession.

00:48:03 --> 00:48:12

There's one profession nobody can fire you. No jealousy. Nobody's vying for it. Nope, there's no competition. What is the profession the professional.

00:48:14 --> 00:48:15

Become a hardy

00:48:16 --> 00:48:19

a servant serve Pema chodron

00:48:21 --> 00:48:27

this is an amazing break. Have Rama in the heart of mercy, compassion in the heart.

00:48:28 --> 00:48:33

And then become the heart of the creation of

00:48:34 --> 00:48:38

these two things together makes a person a slave

00:48:40 --> 00:48:43

which was the greatest characteristic of messengers,

00:48:47 --> 00:48:49

makers, people of compassion

00:48:52 --> 00:48:54

true slaves and your true

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


00:49:05 --> 00:49:08

ITV call of peace, save humanity.
