00:00:04--> 00:00:21

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

We begin this virtual Friday Sermon by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, the Lord of all worlds, the Exalted the Almighty, we asked him for his help. We asked him for healing, we asked him for peace, we asked him for cure, we asked him for protection. And we asked him to send his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of clamor.

00:00:59--> 00:01:38

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, I'd like to begin this virtual Friday Sermon by reminding myself and then all of you all who have tuned in from different parts of the world, to bring in a life of taqwa. And that is to be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To be conscious of the Lord of all worlds, to be conscious of your maker. This is firstly for myself and then all of you all, so that we attain success in this world as well as the hereafter. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all from the people of taqwa. And may He make us from the victorious and successful ones. I mean,

00:01:40--> 00:01:44

many brothers and sisters we are in the month of review in a well

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

and given

00:01:49--> 00:02:03

the backdrop of the things that are happening around the world, especially in France, I think it is best that we talk about a beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:05--> 00:02:55

mentioning him, talking about him, and hearing about him is a privilege upon our tongues and upon our ears Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a gentle reminder media brothers and sisters. As we progress through this short reminder, please send blessings and salutations upon Mohammed sal Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam each time his blessing name is mentioned, we have a hadith that has been recorded in the book of Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah, Abdullah or the Allahu anhu he reports Abdullah have been a sham or the Allahu anhu. He reports that we will be the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was holding the hand of Omar Abdullah hataoka De La Hoya

00:02:57--> 00:03:49

I envy in a positive way Amaro de la Juan, just imagine the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is holding his hand. And then Amaro de la one who says to the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Yasuda, Allah, you are beloved to me, then everything but myself. You are more beloved to me than anybody then every single thing but myself, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then responds, law, no, by the one in whose hand is my soul, until I am more beloved to you than yourself, a law of karma. So Oh my god, Allah one. At this juncture that meant the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said this, and this this illustrates, this illustrates the strength of faith, that the companions of the

00:03:49--> 00:04:10

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had the love the immense love that they had towards the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no sooner the Prophet says this, oh my god, a loved one who he responds, indeed, I swear by Allah, that you are more beloved to me or messenger of Allah now more than myself.

00:04:11--> 00:04:18

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he responds, and now you are right yahama now you are right.

00:04:19--> 00:04:59

In another Hadith, and this one, the one that I mentioned has been recorded in the book of Imam Al Bukhari, in another Hadith, the prophet Allah Islam is reporter have said, none of you truly believes until I am more beloved to that individual than his own father, his own child, and all the people. So as you can see, it is part and parcel of our faith, my dear brothers and sisters, to love the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loving our messenger is mandatory. It is it is an obligatory duty. It is part and parcel of the faith of a believer. It is an act of ariba unto Allah

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

HANA database worship alized virgin by loving his beloved messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:05:08--> 00:05:29

So to love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we must first know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my dear brothers and sisters. It is very saddening, that is heartbreaking indeed. Like I started off when we observed the backdrop of what's happening in France.

00:05:31--> 00:05:37

And we have fallen short media, brothers and sisters, we have fallen short

00:05:40--> 00:06:37

in conveying the beautiful life of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We have fallen short twice, or we have fallen short in two ways, if you will. Way. Number one, we have fallen short, in truly emulating the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in our lives, we have fallen short, we are not following the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam we are not embodying his life. When we emulate the messenger truly, we illustrate to the world. This is how our messenger led his life sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But we have fallen short, we have drifted far away from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So that's shortcoming number one shortcoming number two

00:06:38--> 00:06:59

is that we have fallen short in terms of this concept of Belov in the Arabic language, which I'm going to explain very swiftly. Belov, in other words, is conveying the message of the Prophet conveying the teachings of the Prophet, educating others about the Prophet we have fallen short in that regard as well.

00:07:01--> 00:07:19

How unfortunate we have fallen short in two ways. One before and short in truly emulating the Prophet number two we have fallen short in conveying about the prophet in telling people about the Prophet What a beautiful individual he said allow Allah where he was and what a beautiful role model he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was

00:07:20--> 00:07:35

many brothers and sisters, the messenger the messenger advises us the messenger educates us what is the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tells us? Bella who Annie valo ayah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us belly whiny wallow.

00:07:36--> 00:07:55

In other words, convey about to me the Prophet is commanding us. These are not the words of any mere ordinary human being. These are the words of the messenger and he is telling us barely one knee, convey about me whenever I even if it be one ayah even if it be one verse,

00:07:56--> 00:08:19

and mentioning him sallallahu alayhi wasallam is a privilege upon our tongues, hearing about him. salallahu alayhi wasallam is a privilege upon our ears. It's a privilege, it's an honor for us to talk about the messenger. It is an honor for us to hear about the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the prophets is barely one knee below I

00:08:21--> 00:08:42

believe who there is the concept of tech leaf there tech leaf in other words, the responsibility ballyhoo so there is a responsibility now upon our shoulders to convey the Prophet is commanding us and he's telling us convey, convey teach others tell them about me tell tell tell them about my teachings. Bella Who am me.

00:08:43--> 00:09:08

Now we have the Sharif in the Arabic language, the Sharif as in it's a privilege convey about what convey about who can be about me, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So now initially the cliff the cliff as in now we have the responsibility to convey and what are we to convey to Sharif? It's an honor, it's a privilege to convey about the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:09:10--> 00:09:16

Whenever I hear the thief, the thief as in

00:09:17--> 00:09:54

that responsibility, it's a huge responsibility. It's a colossal responsibility. But here it has been made easy for us even if it'd be one I, even if it'd be one statement of the prophets, Allah Allah Islam, even if he'd be one aspect of the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with regards to the conduct of the prophets, Allah, Allah Islam with regards to the kind heartedness of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam with regard to the positivity of the Prophet sallallaahu Selim with regard to the optimism of the prophets, Allah, Allah Islam, there are so many so many aspects from the life of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, we

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

pride ourselves to be from the oma of the prophets of Allah, Allah Allah.

So let us emulate him My dear brothers and sisters, let us teach others let us educate our visitors create an awareness and this is the best way to respond to these forms of negativity.

00:10:24--> 00:10:42

As you will see, I'm going to highlight a few aspects from the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and how he conducted himself My dear, my dear brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala our maker, he describes the messenger wama outsell NACA Illa Rahmatullah elemi.

00:10:44--> 00:10:59

Bismillah here off man you Rafi neurotomy Rahim. These are two attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah azzawajal uses these two attributes to describe our messenger he is or oh

00:12:38--> 00:12:45

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, I'd like to take this opportunity to advise myself to advise our youngsters.

00:12:46--> 00:13:24

There is there is a lot of zeal there's a lot of enthusiasm. There's a lot of there's a flurry of emotions. And at these junctures it's very important that we go back to the teachings of the prophets, Allah, Allah Islam when it comes to when it comes to how we react. It's very important to go back to the teachings of the messenger and see how he conducted himself when he faced insults, how he conducted himself when they threatened him, how he conducted himself when they humiliated him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam an epitome of mercy.

00:13:26--> 00:13:34

00:13:36--> 00:13:51

this month, the month in which our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born. It's a month that we have to spend learning his life, talking about him, educating ourselves about him.

00:13:53--> 00:14:00

with every passing day, let us strive to emulate sooner after Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:14:04--> 00:14:25

Allah says in the Noble Quran in surah facilite whether that's the will has an atoll let's say Good and Evil cannot be equal. Good and Evil cannot be equal. Darkness cannot be driven with darkness, good and evil cannot be equal.

00:14:26--> 00:14:31

00:16:03--> 00:16:08

the words of our maker, the practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:16:10--> 00:16:12

Hadith is in the book of Emmanuel Bukhari Rahim Allah

00:16:15--> 00:16:16

Robin Robin Harb

00:16:17--> 00:16:20

otherwise known as she was known as also oma Jamil,

00:16:21--> 00:16:38

and who was she she was the wife of Abu lahab she would follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam she would go behind the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam in a move to hurt him, in a move to incite him that that was basically,

00:16:39--> 00:17:38

you know, something that she she loved to do. She would go behind the professor Iris and taunting the messenger, insulting the messenger. And what would she say? She would say? More than Ma'am, she would say move them. Listen attentively. His name was Mohammed. The praised one Mohammed, she would say, Madame Madame is the opposite of that, Madame Ma'am, from them, the the insulted one, the dispraise one we have denied and his Dean we hate we did Vidya we loved his Dean. And his commands his teachings we defy we have defied his teachings. So just imagine you have this lady who's coming behind you insulting you Your name is a good name. She She twists and turns your name around. The

00:17:38--> 00:17:46

name of the Prophet was Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam she says, Yeah, Madame yamamo insulted one Oh, insulted one. Oh, dispraise one.

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

And she says,

00:17:50--> 00:18:02

you know, she, you know, toxic words, words of hatred. We have denied you your deen we lot we detest, and your commands your teachings we define.

00:18:03--> 00:18:12

Now ask yourself, my dear brother, my dear sister, how would you conduct yourself put yourself in the shoes of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:18:14--> 00:18:23

And now look at the way the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam carried himself. Instead of responding to her. He would simply

00:18:25--> 00:19:01

tell his companions, calm Lee. Look at the conduct of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would tell them don't you see? how Allah subhanho wa Taala diverts from me the curses and the insults of the kurush look at how Allah subhanho wa Taala has protected me Look at how Allah has diverted away from me the curses and the insults of the Quran. They are insulting someone called Muslim. They are insulting someone called Muslim.

00:19:02--> 00:19:18

I am not Muslim ma'am. They are cursing someone called Muslim. I am not Muslim ma'am. I am Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He didn't he didn't stoop to their level. He walked away. He didn't respond.

00:19:20--> 00:19:27

He held himself Subhana Allah He was you know basically he transcended all of this many brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:19:29--> 00:19:32

So it is not for us to get caught up in all of this.

00:19:34--> 00:19:56

He diffused the situation that was that was the way the prophets Allah Islam handled things he diffused the situation. He found the silver lining. He is reporter have said that he you hate Will Ferrell. He loves optimism. He was he was the greatest optimist to ever walk on the face of this earth.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

He was an optimist. He drew up

00:20:00--> 00:20:26

Islam, even from those negative and toxic situations where, you know it may be impossible for us to even think of detecting a silver lining or detecting a trace of optimism and then that's how he conducted himself sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, many brothers and sisters, these words are not my words, these are descriptions of the messenger. These words need to go far and wide.

00:20:27--> 00:20:41

Share this content on on your pages. I mean, we share all kinds of things, we need to let the world know who he Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is share this Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:20:42--> 00:20:54

the prophet of Mercy by my brothers and sisters who are tuning in from other parts of the world, if you can have this translated or captioned in your own languages do so. So that the world knows who Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is

00:20:55--> 00:21:16

and so that we act upon the initial narration of the profit Bell levani Well, I and this cannot end it has to go on. It has to go on. educating others creating an awareness. Generation after generation we need to create an awareness we need to teach others about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam.

00:21:18--> 00:21:24

You see these these cartoons. And these drawings

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

that they claim

00:21:28--> 00:21:41

to be in the likeness of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they are far removed. They are far away from our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam far, far away.

00:21:43--> 00:21:51

emammal quote to be Rahim Allah He states in his book in his tafsir the full beauty of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:21:52--> 00:22:44

The full beauty of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was not made manifest by Allah subhanho wa Taala as a mercy unto us, because if his full beauty was made manifest, we would not have been able to handle the beauty of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and I'm talking about his physical appearance. He was such a handsome individual, such a handsome, handsome individual. We have many narrations that talk about the physical demeanor, the the attributes, the physical attributes of the prophets, Allah Allah Silla, for example, the hadith of jabber are the last one. He says that I once saw the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the night of a full moon. And on that

00:22:44--> 00:22:49

night, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was wearing a red striped clothing.

00:22:51--> 00:23:28

I looked at the full moon, I looked at the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and I did this numerous times I looked at the full moon, I looked at the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam I looked at the full moon. I looked at the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Ultimately, I came to the conclusion that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa early he was seldom was more Hansen was more beautiful, was more luminous, was more radiant than the full moon. Mohammed Salah La la la was

00:23:31--> 00:23:41

such a beautiful individual one occasion. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was seated with Abu Bakar de la one Heidi is in the book in the Muslim Imam Ahmed Rahim Allah

00:23:42--> 00:23:46

and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was silently smiling.

00:23:48--> 00:23:58

When Abu Bakr rhodiola one was being insulted by another individual, but Abu Bakr rhodiola one he refrained from responding to that person.

00:24:01--> 00:24:12

But eventually, when Abubakar de la Juan who responded to that individual, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he got up and he left. He got up and he left.

00:24:14--> 00:24:20

And then he said a long while he will he will sell him later on explained, he went on to tell Abubakar de la one.

00:24:21--> 00:24:37

An angel was with you, an angel was with you, responding on your behalf. But when you said back to him some of what he said when you responded to him with some of what he said.

00:24:38--> 00:24:51

A shake on arrived, a devil arrived and it is not appropriate for me. The messenger is saying it is not appropriate for me to sit with the sheriff in to sit with the devils of law.

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

Look, look at how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam conducted himself.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

You see you know

00:25:00--> 00:25:17

When you read through the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the amount of hurt the amount of pain, the pagans put him through the crush the pain that they put the Prophet sallallahu Sallam through they they hurt the messenger salallahu alayhi wasalam at every turn

00:25:18--> 00:25:43

had this is in the book of Imam Muslim Rahim Allah, Abu huraira of the Allahu anhu. He reports that at one point it was said to the Prophet sallallahu ala because the pain was so intense. It was so intense it was said to the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had a sort of love, why don't you curse them? Why don't you curse them? Why don't you raise your hands against them? Why don't you curse them?

00:25:45--> 00:25:55

And you know what? The prophet of mercy responded with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam the prophet of mercy. He responded saying,

00:25:56--> 00:26:17

I have not been sent as the Invoker of curse. I have not been sent as an individual to curse. I have been sent as a mercy woman arson, naka de la Rahmatullah me. Look at the words of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:26:20--> 00:26:21

Many brothers and sisters,

00:26:22--> 00:26:24

you know the incident of life,

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

the incident of life.

00:26:29--> 00:26:43

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes to them? Did he go to them for some financial gain? Did he go to them for any worldly benefit? No. Did he go there looking for, you know, like,

00:26:44--> 00:27:12

expecting some kind of citizenship or you know, someone who benefit nothing, nothing of that sort. He went to them to invite them unto Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we are familiar with the story with the incident. We know how they insulted the Prophet sallallahu Sallam they debase the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they rounded up the street urchins to run after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, pelting him with stones son.

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

May my mother my father

00:27:17--> 00:27:19

and myself be ransom before him sudden Allah.

00:27:21--> 00:27:22

They pelted him with stones.

00:27:24--> 00:27:26

He's bleeding, he's bleeding.

00:27:28--> 00:27:36

And in the Hadith that has been recorded in the book of Bukhari Muslim by him Allah the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tells of a Medina Chateau de la Juana

00:27:38--> 00:27:48

that he left pif and he rests at a place called karma Liebe

00:27:49--> 00:28:25

many brothers and sisters, from time to corner salat, you have as per certain historians almost a distance of five to 10 kilometres. And as per as per other historians even more it's almost almost about 20 to 25 kilometres, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with blood bleeding, with blood bleeding, his heart heavy, after the insults and after the hurtful responses of the people of dive.

00:28:27--> 00:28:32

If this does not make our hearts rend and tears flow from our eyes,

00:28:33--> 00:29:02

what is the point in us saying that we love the messenger and if we are not able to deduce lessons from these incidents, despite the pain, you will see how he conducts himself. He works such a long distance five to 10 kilometers as per certain historians as per others even more to this place called karma Talib and then Allah subhanho wa Taala as per the words of the Prophet sallahu wa sallam he says

00:29:04--> 00:29:20

I lifted my head towards the sky to see a cloud shading me. I looked up and I'm paraphrasing oh come on call la salat wa salam. The narration goes along the lines of these words. I saw jabril Allah is Allah.

00:29:22--> 00:29:24

And jabril, Elijah to Salam. He says Now

00:29:25--> 00:29:46

Allah has heard your people's saying to you and how they have replied, and Allah has sent to the angels of the mountains, the angel of the mountains to you, so that you may order him to do whatever you wish to these people. They have insulted the Messenger of Allah they have hurt the Messenger of Allah.

00:29:49--> 00:30:00

And then the immediately the angel in charge of the mountains greeted the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam and he said, Yasser Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or the What do you wish

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

If you want I will let the mountains come crashing down on them. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam immediately stops. No, no,

00:30:10--> 00:30:52

Rod rod. That is not something that I wish, I do not want you to do that. Rather I hope that Allah will bring from their descendants. And as per another narration the prophets Allah isn't actually praise in comparison to this narration that narration in terms of its authenticity, it is weak and it is upon the responsibility of knowledge that is upon my shoulders that I have to highlight that, but as per that narration, the promise lies and actually makes a DA and he complains about his weakness, about his weakness. But coming back to the more authentic hadith that is in the book of Buhari Nima Muslim Rahim Allah, there is no contradiction. The prophets Allah Allah Islam, he says

00:30:52--> 00:31:38

here, no, Radha I hope that Allah will bring from their descendants, people who will worship Allah, without associating partners unto him. Look at the mercy of the prophets that allow us to live our lives. He did not exact vengeance. My dear brothers and sisters, he did not exact vengeance. He did not he did not take revenge. He was not a revengeful prophet. He was not a hateful prophet. He was not a prophet of hate. He was a prophet of mercy, Mohammed Salah Allahu Allahu Allah, He wrestled and this is what we need to Yes, as we learn, we are blown away by the mercy of the prophets of Allah. But along with that, it is incumbent it is of paramount importance that we emulate him

00:31:38--> 00:31:41

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in terms of how he conducted himself.

00:31:45--> 00:31:46

Another Hadith

00:31:47--> 00:32:16

when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was in Medina, and this had his to his record on the Book of Abraham, Allah, a group of people, they come to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and they greet the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam saying a samurai like a samurai like Now, for those of you who are familiar with the Arabic language, the greeting the actual greeting is Assalamu alaikum Salaam peace here, these people greeted the prophet Isaiah Assam, omitting the lamb and the lF Assam.

00:32:17--> 00:32:24

So Assam while a goon is translated as dead to be upon you destruction or death to be upon you.

00:32:25--> 00:32:28

He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam calmly responded

00:32:29--> 00:32:32

and upon UI like and upon you.

00:32:34--> 00:33:02

You know when you say a Salaam wa alaykum. you respond why Lake wa Alaykum wa Salaam warahmatullahi wabarakatuh because the principle is, is supposed to respond with that which is better. So these people that they agree to the Prophet Assam Allah and the Prophet, being the most intelligent of individuals, the most aware of individuals, the most mindful of individuals. He hears them loud and clear.

00:33:03--> 00:33:46

But he calmly responds, why, like I showed the last one, our mother is Chateau de la Juana. She was upset. She was upset when she heard how when she when she saw the audacity of these people where they are to come and greet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's so much of toxicity. Just imagine if someone were I mean, when you walk out and when you see someone, what do you normally say? We would greet them with a Salam or Aleikum, we would say, Okay, good morning, or good evening. Just imagine if you were to go to someone and say, you know, have a richer day, have a richer day, may you be destroyed? How do you think that person would feel? And how do you think that person

00:33:46--> 00:34:05

would respond back? So similarly, I shadowed a loved one who was extremely upset. How can these people come and greet the prophets? Allah Islam is so much of toxic toxicity with so much of hatred in their hearts. So she responds back that be upon you along with the curse of Allah and the anger of Allah.

00:34:07--> 00:34:39

The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he calmly responds, yeah, I yeah, I like your riff. Yeah, I shall be gentle, be gentle. Indeed. Allah is gentle, while you have bereft, Allah is gentle, and Allah loves gentleness, in all matters. Allah loves gentleness, in all matters, and be wary of being harsh. Yeah. Ayesha, beware of being harsh.

00:34:40--> 00:34:44

Then she responds, Yara Salalah Did you not hear what they just said?

00:34:45--> 00:34:52

And then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam tells Aisha Did you not hear how I replied?

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

I have returned their statement to them. When they said Assam Wiley when they said that to be a

00:35:00--> 00:35:15

knew I said while I can make the same same be upon you. In other words, if you come to me with positivity let positivity be upon you, but if you are coming to me with such statements, then let it be upon you. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam went on to say their

00:35:16--> 00:35:27

invocation and look at if you compare the invocations whose do you think is going to be accepted, but Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:35:28--> 00:35:54

being in a position of power, he did not retaliate, he did not repeat back, he did not stoop to their level. He did not stoop to their level, nor did he let his own wife respond harshly to them. This is the beauty of how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam conducted himself, my dear brothers and sisters. So in this short reminder,

00:35:55--> 00:36:06

through this virtual Friday sermon, I hope I was able to illustrate a few aspects of you beautiful aspects from the life of our beloved messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:36:07--> 00:36:40

Like a dive, going into the ocean and coming out with birds, like a garden, going into a beautiful garden, a well manicured beautiful garden and coming out with sweet smelling flowers, we go into the life of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. In other words, each and every time we go into the life of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We come out with sweet smelling flowers, we come out with glistening pearls in the form of lessons from the life of our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

So my dear brothers

00:36:44--> 00:36:54

and sisters in Islam, let us send the excessive blessings and salutations upon him. Let us react by teaching others

00:36:55--> 00:37:21

about the prophet of mercy let us do so in a merciful way, in a kind way, we do not see today, things are happening, where our faith is being hijacked. The teachings of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam are being betrayed. We do not promote nor do we condone this senseless violence and oppression that is taking place.

00:37:22--> 00:37:49

We are far away from it and the teachings of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do not promote it in any way. And that has to be said very loudly and clearly. As you can see this entire sermon, this entire sermon has been to illustrate the mercy of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and to inculcate in our hearts that we follow in the footsteps of the prophet of mercy and nothing else, nothing else.

00:37:51--> 00:38:03

So my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, let us show the world the mercy of our messenger salallahu alayhi wasalam. Let us not stoop to lower the levels, whether this will happen.

00:38:04--> 00:38:15

Good and Evil cannot be equal. Darkness cannot drive out darkness, it the ability here is and respond and react with that which is best with that which is good.

00:38:16--> 00:38:25

As per the teachings of the Koran and the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. With that I conclude this reminder.

00:38:27--> 00:39:10

In my own country, we are going through another uptick of COVID cases. And that is the case in many parts of the world as well.
