como la de
wahala me amin has an agenda
We commence by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala who is no doubt our Creator sustain and nourish, protect and cure. We asked him gender wise to shower his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of prayer.
And hamdulillah we're here. We've all gathered to witness the official rising of Anika and inshallah, in the few minutes that I have with you all. I would like to share a beautiful Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and expound on a beautiful son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is in the form of a dua.
And this particular Heidi has been narrated by Abu huraira the long line he is reported to have said, and the narration goes along the lines of these words Oh, c'mon Kala alayhi salatu salam,
the whenever a sort of law he said a lot while in your early he was seldom used to congratulate somebody.
the individuals marriage after the individuals nikka either off in San IE, that is a wedge. Whenever a supervisor Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam used to congratulate someone when that individual
got married, he said Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam would say, Baraka, la willock Wa La Kuma la Vina Kumasi, hi, a beautiful Dora. I'm sure most of you are aware of this. But for today's talk in sha Allah, we are going to expand this to Allah. They're going to break this down and elaborate on it insha Allah barakallahu li hua Kyla Kuma Raja Magana, Kumasi. Hi
this narration has been recorded in the book of Mr. mathema rahima Hola, Mama Budo de Mama tirmidhi Imam Ibrahim of whom Allah and it has been classified by Mohammed Albania Rahim Allah as well. So in regard to the direct translation of the DA it can be translated as May Allah Subhana Allah bless you. May Allah azza wa jal bless you barakallahu li Wa La Kuma May Allah Subhana Medina bless you both, ie the two spouses with Gemma Dana Kumasi hi and may He unite you both upon goodness with Gemma avena Kuma.
Now the doula can be broken down into three paths Baraka la hulak, where you directly make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala in regard to that individual may Allah bless you, like for example, in sha Allah, after the groom signs on the dotted line after the after this read in sha Allah, we will all be greeting the groom, yes, then it is upon us to read this law. And when we read the DA, we look at the groom and we say barakallahu lac May Allah bless you, with directly making dua that Allah subhanho wa Taala should bless the groom barakallahu lac, because it used to be from the customs of Jaya helia the the scholars like Imam and NaVi Rahim Allah and others who write the shadow half the
country in regard to this particular Hadith they state that because Abu huraira the Allahu anhu he states in that same idea either Rafael in San Mundo supervisor Allahu alayhi wa sallam used to congratulate an individual
because it used to be from the customs of Joshua that they would congratulate one another by saying a reefer. Well, Benny in reefer well, Benny, this used to be from the customs of Jamelia, where they used to say perhaps you can translate that as Congratulations, and may you be blessed with sons. This used to be a phrase from Jia helia sora supervisor Allahu Allah, you alayhi wa sallam, he replaced that phrase with this beautiful da with this beautiful da and now that this particular phrase has been replaced
That it is upon us believers the faithful the ones who follow Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam that we stick to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because it has been clearly defined as what we need to do in this particular juncture. What needs to be said? We don't necessarily have to follow anything else because the sort of lies that Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us clearly that you should read this particular draft barakallahu li hua Baraka Rilakkuma wajima avena Kumasi
and in regard to the the phrase that was used was used during the days of Jamelia scholars they right I mean, it contradicts in many ways like say for example to say a reefer well, Benny in in the sense congratulations and may you be blessed with songs. You're giving priority to sons here because this used to be from the customers of jack Hillier, they despised and hated daughters. Whenever a daughter was born to an Arab in those days, Vol Masada, his face would become black and darken out of sadness. They used to bury their daughters alive.
This used to be from the days of ignorance from the pagan Arabs. But then Islam came about with beautiful teachings, Islam came and illuminated the lands of Arabia with its beautiful teachings. And Mohammed said, Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he taught the Sahaba one light Allah Allah image mine and he's on my blog, you and I, what to do in such juncture. So we follow Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now getting back to the DA Baraka laws will let you make dua for the groom directly. May Allah bless you. And when you say barakallahu like you are intending all forms of goodness, may Allah bless you. May Allah protect you from evil. May Allah protect you from harm. It
is a concise, short and beautiful, that has a world in terms of its meanings. Such beautiful meanings is all encompassed in this one da Baraka Allahu Allah, may Allah bless you, and then you repeating it again will Baraka Allah Kumar and May Allah bless you both. But then if you were to analyze the Arabic text, you would find that there is a slight difference because there's a different preposition being used here now barakallahu li Baraka I like, I hope you do understand the difference. There is this preposition that is being used, which is known as either in the Arabic language eila barakallahu, Li barakallahu li Aqua Baraka, la Kuma, Anna, the preposition that the
preposition Allah is being used, and scholars who write the shadow had they stayed that Allah is being used here to give a meaning of encompassing where the goodness encompasses the two spouses. Goodness in the sense May Allah bless their marriage. May Allah protect their marriage from harm, maybe may they be united forever, may they be blessed with beautiful obedient children. All of these beautiful though as all incorporated within these two statements barakallahu Allah wa Baraka la Kuma may they live in happiness may they live with love care and mercy towards one another with their hearts be filled with love whatever goodness that you intend, it is incorporated in that de
barakallahu Allah wa barakaatuh Allah Kuma and then you cap off the doula by saying well, Gemma avena Kumasi Hi, and may they be united upon goodness. Now this goodness is similar to the goodness that we make in the doula when we say Rob Bana and CNF in dunya has an unsung hero to
This used to be a DA that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam would read excessively because this is another concise da that has amazing meanings to it. You're asking for goodness in this world, goodness in the hereafter and that Allah subhanho wa Taala should save you from the fire of Johanna. So when we say goodness in this world, what do we mean goodness in this world in the sense a good job, good life, a comfortable house, a good spouse, good loving, obedient children, good family, all of that is incorporated when you say robina and Tina Fey dunia Hudson. And when we say we feel after the Hasina, obviously, primarily the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is the the pinnacle
that is what we're all striving for. And then if you have the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal and Jana, that is all you need, that is all you need in Alaska, the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And second to that is gender paradise, because at the end of the day, when it comes to a comparison, obviously we give priority to the pleasure of Allah subhana wa gyla. Even over agenda, even over agenda, we are striving for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala even agenda even paradise comes after the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the concept of a class. So coming back to the doula with Gemma avena Kumasi Hi, may Allah subhanho wa Taala united
Upon goodness, and in this world, in this world, the pinnacle of goodness is that may they be united upon good deeds upon acts that are pleasing unto Allah subhanho wa Taala so that they secure the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal may they be united upon taqwa, upon taqwa
the three is that we read during the football hanjo all highlight one very important element and that is tough for you. Hello, Vina? I'm an otaku. La haka. tokachi. burrata. mutanda illa Anta Muslim on Yeah, you hola Dina. Amanita Kula Haku Colin Sarita. Yeah yohanna suta Pura Baku, three Ayah all highlighting taco. Because taco is so important. Taco needs to permeate into our lives. Taco needs to govern eyelines taco which is the fear and the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the base of taqwa is our heart. The base of taqwa is our hearts.
As a supervisor Allahu alayhi wa sallam in one particular narration, his report read sit atop wha Hoo nowshera la sonrisa a taco Hakuna Matata, Hakuna Matata Hakuna taco is over here, taco is over here. Taco is over here in another Hadith hospitalized for a long while he when he was 11 his report Graham said Allah was in a futile gesture, the mood
that know that in an individual's body.
The notion goes along the lines of these words, there is a piece of flesh, either solid, solid, religious or dokolo. It that fish if that piece of flesh is upright, if that piece of flesh is good, if that piece of flesh is proper, then the whole body of that individual will be upright, it will be proper, and only goodness will radiate from that individual's body. But on the other hand, were either first said that first they're just too cool. If that piece of flesh goes bad, if that piece of flesh goes even if that piece of flesh becomes corrupt, then the whole body of that individual goes bad goes rotten. May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all. And then he said a lot while it was
lm went on to state lol he'll know that it is the heart of an individual. It is the heart of an individual
our hearts we need to work on them. We need to work on purifying them. And in this do we make for the couple Baraka lochwinnoch robotica la Kuma Gemma avena Kumasi Hey, you're incorporating the fact that may Allah Subhana horns Allah unite them upon to good hearts, pure hearts that love one another for the sake of Allah Subhana horns on the word about our hearts. We need to work on our hearts. We need to work on our hearts. Mr. melkonian Rahim Allah a famous scholar. He is known as a specialist of hearts because he talks and writes extensively in regard to the heart of an individual in regard to the diseases of the heart of an individual. He is no cardiovascular specialists, but he is a
specialist on the spiritual heart. And he talks about spiritual diseases not cardiovascular diseases. He states that hearts of three types are called booze Saleem alcohol will marry alcohol with the first heart the pure and sound heart, a healthy heart, a heart free from diseases, diseases in the sense spiritual diseases like envy, hatred, anger,
despising one another judging one another judgmental thoughts about others pride etc. We need to work on our hearts we need to purify our hearts, because it is a pure heart that will help you on the day when your wealth will not benefit you. Your children will not avail you as a loss it states in the noble Koran, your mother
law, have you been solely
on that day when your work will not benefit you your children will not benefit you what will benefit you in laminata law be called in saline except for the individual who comes with a call Saleem in the sense of pure heart, a sound heart, a healthy heart free from all defects spiritual defects, may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all to purify our hearts.
Number two are called will marry. The second category is known as a sick heart a heart riddled with diseases. But there is hope. There is hope that individual can work on his heart can work on purifying his or her heart. As we have in another Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his report who have said when an individual commits a sin what happens a black dot forms on his heart, and each time he commits a sin, the dots keep increasing until his heart becomes like a dark overturned vessel. But on the other hand, if he makes Toba if he works on purifying his heart, he can polish
is hard to shine and illuminate.
So the second heart is our palpable Maria, the final heart of pearl will may yet May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us on a dead heart. A heart sealed up a heart, a heart so hard that it cannot absorb goodness. It cannot absorb the words of our makers of Hannah horns Allah goodness finds it so difficult to penetrate through because that individuals heart is so hard is hard hearted. Tears don't run when he hears the words of his makers of Hannah horns, Allah, there's no effect whatsoever when the Quran is read. And the Quran is read. There's no effect on him because he has drifted so far away from Allah subhanho wa Taala
as Eliza just stating the Noble Quran.
Allah for Allah, Allah Allah kulu been
Do they not make a debate over the Koran or Allah Kubina?
Or have they got locks on their hearts? So as you can see very clearly making a debate over the Koran is closely connected to your heart. If you're finding it difficult to make the double, double entendre and reflect over the Koran, then you need to work on your heart. You need to purify your heart because if your heart is healthy, if your heart is sound, then it becomes so easy for you to make the debate over the forum for you to ponder, reflect and contemplate on the words of Allah subhanho time.
grata in Rahim Allah He has written a book titled modality to sell again, by Nima nozzle IJA. Can Abuja can Stein modality to sell again vaynerman as in Egypt and Abuja can assign three volumes this thick each volume three volumes, and all three volumes are based on one single idea. One single idea and this idea is from the greatest surah in the Quran. Surah Fatiha and the idea is the ayah that comes towards the end of the title year.
like a diver who dives into the ocean, this amount he goes in and he comes out with pearls gems and jewels from circle Fatiha.
When we talk about the Tafseer of the Quran, we say that we're like gardeners, we're like gardeners we go into the garden that has been beautifully landscaped by the scholars of the past by a selection of soil by the Sahaba, one led
by our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we go in like gardeners, and we bring out flowers, bouquets of flowers, roses from the beautiful garden because everything has been landscaped so beautifully in that garden.
And he writes in that book, so extensively in regard to yaquina. Buddha can Stein and there is this one powerful quote he brings about he states
either what he said sheduled mohab Betsy Phil Collins was Sofia Bhima iliff last one metabo agile Habib
azmerit Anwar demand for assets kukula Hakuna hain in bijnor on behalf for Ohio motors, aloha sabaton ficarra pal wolfer Ohio moto serum is
a beautiful metaphor and analogy but profound indeed.
He states that if the tree of love is a very such a gentle Maha Beti filfil if the tree of love is planted in your heart, what love are we talking about here? The love between Laila and majan the love between Romeo and Juliet now
we're talking about the pinnacle of love.
To love the fountainhead of love, to love the creator of love, to love the source of love Allah subhanho wa Taala had to love Him and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because you have many shades of love. We're not talking about 50 Shades of Grey, we have many shades of love. And the pinnacle of them all is to love Allah subhanho wa Taala and to love his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, if that tree is planted in your heart, and if it is watered with the pure waters of a class, or superior Bhima in a class with the pure waters of sincerity, because whatever you do, you're doing it for the sake of Allah subhanho outside, why are you entering this nikka this
bond of marriage for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Why are you coming to the masjid for the sake of Allah? Why are you fasting the month of Ramadan for the sake of Allah scholars state that it is of utmost importance that we do not contaminate our intentions in any way whatsoever. Make sure that whatever you're doing, you're doing it for the sake of Allah, everything else comes afterwards everything else you're doing it for the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal. So let's look at the market.
Class very swiftly. And if that tree is watered with a pure waters of a class, and we're Masada axial heavy, and the following of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because if you fail to follow Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam you cannot go anywhere down that path. You need the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to guide you like a beacon, you need his teaching serravalle we need to follow his sadhana.
azmerit Anwar icmr. If that tree is planted me and if it is water as such, it will start to blossom and it will start to bear fruit. its roots will be firmly embedded in the heart of that individual. And the tree will grow so strong that its branches will reach Sidra Tillman's aha the utmost boundary, where he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went during Israel and Neeraj, a metaphor, an analogy, but a beautiful one, a profound one. If you plant that tree of love in your heart, no doubt you will reach Allah subhanho wa Taala in a state where you will be happy with a wiser Virgil and no doubt he will be pleased between Sha loudhailer just as how the Sahaba one later Allah Allah image
pleased loss of Hannah Montana, the long line from worldwide.
So my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam.
Let us work on our hearts. And most importantly, let us work on following the authentic and true son of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because it is in the Sunnah of the prophets are a long, winding road it was seldom that you my dear brother, will gain victory in this world as well as the hereafter. If you love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam prove your love by following him sal Allahu Allahu Allah said
let me mention one incident and I'll wrap off inshallah, this took place during the Battle of battle
during the Battle of battle, as you all know, the Battle of better was unlike any other battle.
This is after the merger of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Two years after the merger of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they were all in Medina and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam received Intel valuable Intel that Abu sufian Abu sufian was at that time from the Kufa later on, he embraced Islam for the long run. At that time he was from the Kufa he was headed with a caravan with a lot of valuables trading goods, cameras, whatnot, from the lens of Shang towards Mecca. The caravan was worth an estimated net worth of almost 50,000 Gold dinars 50,000 Gold dinars.
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam receives the Intel and he mobilizes the Sahaba at one night is much mine that is all go to bed the bedroom was halfway almost about
in the Arabic measurements about 28 first from Medina. One first is equivalent to about three to four miles three to four miles you can do the math inshallah. So at that time, it was about half a day or one day's journey from Medina basically the value of better they decided to intercept the caravan there. Now you need to understand something here. As soon as I said a long while you it was lm was not a highway robber, as some people put it is not a hijacker. You need to understand context, you need to understand the background in regard to all of this. They were persecuted in Makkah, they were chased out of Makkah, their wealth, their property was usurped by their kuffar by
the pagans of Mecca, and a supervisor Allahu Allah when he was in them. He said, Let us go intercept the caravan, and take that which has been usurped from us our belongings, and this was the plan. So they set out very swiftly,
with a very small number of the Sahaba 300 of them. Some scholars say 313, some 315, some 370, ma 300.
And a few cameras and two horses. This was all. As you can see, these are not arrangements to wage war, they had no plan at all to wage war, it was just merely to intercept the caravan and take that which belong to them. And that was it.
This news travels to Abu sufian and Abu sufian. He was an intelligent individual. He immediately deployed an individual by the name long, long,
long, this individual he had it within me was like a broadcasting system. He could he could make the whole of Makkah clamor to bother if you wanted to. So that's why I bought Sofia and deployed him. Zamzam rushes to Mecca. He rushes to Makkah, he stands on top of his animal. He tears away his clothes and he cries out Yama, Ashoka Rajesh Yama, Shara Quraysh, Allah tala, Chima Allah tema de la cima ellos eligos he cries out oh people of Quraysh hope people have crush. Our caravan is being attacked. Our caravan is being attacked. We need help.
We need help
at the head with a Buddha
who is also known as the Luma. The feel of this oma, the enemy of Allah Subhana, which Allah and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he mustered an army of 1300, strong
3300 strong, and they had an infantry or cavalry of almost 950 individuals, they mobilized themselves and they marched towards better.
Abu sufian in the meanwhile, he was intelligent. He made sure that he took a different route and got the caravan
out of the way, there was basically no way to intercept the caravan. Now, the minute he did that, he sent news back again to Abuja, saying, look, initially the caravan was in danger, but now the caravan is safe. You can all head back. You can all head back. It's fine. Abuja Hill, an arrogant tyrant. He said, so what if the caravan is safe, we are bloodthirsty, let our women sing songs, we are going to better we are going to spend three nights there. We are going to eat we're going to make money and we are going to wage war and let the tribes of Arabia know of our astounding victory. He was advocate.
So he made his way to better news travels to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the sort of life for a long while evalue Selim now knew that war was going to be waged. He had only 300 also have he immediately called for a council. All of the Sahaba stood up, they said jasola We are with you, wherever you go back to Mr. DYK first, our model de la one second, Mecca da da, da da da and they all stood up and offered their support. And then from the answer.
Sad even more I see the full answer. He stood up and said jasola be also with
all of their mobile devices Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam Nonetheless, the point that I want to highlight their loyalty their love for a slice of virus alum, the incident, a beautiful incident took place on the day of the battle. In the morning, it was 17th of Ramadan. According to certain historian 17th of Ramadan, two years after the history of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam It was a Friday. He said a long while in value Salaam had organized the army had divided the army into flanks and given the leadership to certain individuals. And he said along while he was personally making sure that the roles were all in alignment, because this is something from the Sunnah of the Prophet
salallahu alayhi wasallam, in Salah as well as on the battlefield, that your roles need to be in alignment, to show your unity to show your solidarity. So he said a long while ago when he was selling was making sure that the roles were all in alignment. As he was walking, he had a stick in his hand. And he was making sure that the roles were all in alignment. There was one Sahabi rhodiola one. So what are the other one? He saw Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam coming with the stick, aligning the rose
he moved a bit forward and made sure that his chest and tummy was protruding. Those who likes it at aloha Island when he was Salim he observed that and he went by solid and tapped him lightly with the stick on his stomach and said yeah, so what stones still stay in alignment in the sense align euro align euro he tapped his chest and stomach with the stick.
So other the other one immediately sees the opportunity and said Yasser Allah, you hurt me. And I need to take retaliation.
The Sahaba were around squad. They were infuriated. They were so angry. They were almost about to explode. You want to take retaliation from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looked at him very calmly. And then he went on to say, you know sort of La you taught us of equity. You taught us of fairness. You taught us of justice. And I want to return he ate. So give me the opportunity to do so. I sort of I said a long while ago it was Allah then gave the stick to someone.
Go ahead, so
you may retaliate. So, the last one then said Yasuda law.
You tapped me when I was buried. My my chest in my stomach is currently exposed. So likewise, I want you to expose your body.
The Sahaba could not believe their ears. They could not believe their ears. What's going on with Sawa? What's he doing? a supervisor Allahu alayhi wa sallam very calmly, lifted his upper gun.
The minute he said Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam did that. So there'll be a long line through this stick inside. And he ran to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he hugged him and he started to kiss the sort of lights that alarm really when you slam on the chest and on his stomach. That sort of lights that alarm while you it was Saddam was looking at this area. So why Why did you do this? Why did you do this? And then he went on to say Yasser Allah. I can see the enemy in front of me. And I wish for martyrdom. I want to die for the sake of Allah.
If I am to die,
my last moments I want them to be my skin touching your skin jasola this was the love of the Sahaba one night Allah Allah Himeji mine. So my dear, respected elders and brothers in Islam, likewise personalize that a long while ago it was lm is not alive amidst us now to prove our love for him. So we prove our love for him by following his pseudonym Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we learn about his Sunnah because our religion is a knowledge based religion, we have to seek knowledge, we have to, we learn about it, we can't be ignorant, we will definitely be held accountable in the court of Allah subhanho wa Taala because today we live in an era where we have access to so much of
information. So we have to no doubt seek knowledge. Now what is correct and follow it according to the teachings of the Koran and the authentic student of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah azzawajal help us all to do so. So inshallah Allah we can all start off by reading the dua when you congratulate the groom in sha Allah Baraka La la la la la cama was Yama avena Kumasi hi nella, Azerbaijan forgive all of our sins. Many accept our good deeds. May He bless the marriage that is about to take place in another few minutes man he bless the two spouses many filled their hearts with pure love care and mercy for one another and many eyes Virgil bless our marriages as
well. I mean, he blessed us to with beautiful obedient children will be a coolness to our eyes. And may He just as how united us in this particular message may unite us in the gardens of Genoa with our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I mean work in handling European Highland means
