shall not tyla for today's seminar, I would like to share
a few of the first powerful pieces of advice that were issued by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as he entered the blesser lands of Medina, Allah.
We have an authentic narration that has been reported, or narrated by Abu Yusuf Abdullah had been sent out of the long line. Now interestingly, I've only been sent in a long line. At that point when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was entering Medina. He was not a Muslim. Can haber Amina herbaria hood, he was a Jewish rabbi. He was a monk.
He gets wind of the arrival of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam to Medina, a lot of people, they were thronging to welcome Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the borders of Medina and he decides to go and see Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was a Jewish rabbi, a Jewish leader. He decides to go and see the sort of law he said Allahu Allah, He really was sent him so he makes his way and he is among the people who had all gathered to welcome Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just imagine the spectacle.
No sooner his eyes fell upon the beautiful and blessed face of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this particular companion because later on he embraces Islam, he is reported to have said that there was not even a shadow along the lines of these words, that there was not even a shadow of doubt remaining in my heart, in regard to this individual, that this individual could be a liar. No, this individual he is the face of this individual is so blessed that it is impossible that he be a liar.
Look at the beauty. The minute he saw the face of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam conviction was firmly and deeply rooted in his heart. He knew that the message that this man has come with is the truth, his heart.
He can never ever be alive. Now that he's convinced now that there is conviction in his heart. He now pays an attentive ear to what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had to say at that particular juncture. And he is the one narrating the howdy Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam now addresses the gathering. He looks at them and he addresses them. And he issues four powerful pieces of advice.
And the narration goes along the lines of these words of Xu Salaam Yeah, you unless the supervisor along while evaluating them addresses the gathering. Yeah. Are you hon NASS Oh people. Now interestingly, he said a lot while you were listening did not say all Muslims are believers name. Why? Because the bulk of them at that time the majority of them from the people of Medina, they were non Muslims. They were from the people of Medina and they were non Muslims. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addresses all of them. The Mahajan as well as the people of Medina. This was at the point when he entered Medina. Yeah, you
of Shu Salim. Were ultra emoto
was in our ham. What's new been laid even NASA neon that the huddle generator
Oh, powerful words of shoe set.
Well otter mo Tom. What was he doing our hand was oil lube in the lady one nasty neon that the hydrogen metabase Allah
piece of advice number one of Xu Salah
spread peace. Now you can directly interpret these words the purpose ally send them to mean spread the greeting of peace which is SLM while a Kumara motto bah bah bah catcher, this is the direct interpretation. Or you can even take on a more general interpretation because Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was addressing
Muslims as well as non Muslims. And we all know that the greetings of peace. In the sense the greetings of Islam are generally between the Muslim moon, but he has sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is addressing non Muslims as well. And what is he saying I should set up so honestly, the more general interpretation fits better hear because he's addressing non Muslims as well. So the general interpretation here is to spread peace, spread peace amidst the spread peace amongst yourselves.
If you were to go with either one of the two interpretations, the clear understanding that we can deduce or derive at this point or from this piece of advice is that my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, Islam is such a beautiful religion, that it is a peace offering to the entire world. It is a peace offering to the entire world. If one were to just study Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh properly in depth, you will just be blown away. It is such a powerful greeting we take the greeting very lightly. Islam is reported to have said in a particular ad, you will not enter Jannah until you believe me No, and you will not believe until you love one another.
And Shall I show you a way where you can love one another it'll easily bring love in your heart, spread the greetings of peace say salam to one another your hearts will be filled with love towards one another. and due to that love Eman will be ingrained in your heart and because of that you will enter gender May Allah make us all from the people of gender. I mean
so many respected elders and brothers in Islam, it is important that we understand the gravity the depth and the power of this greeting Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Firstly, it is from the Sunnah of the Prophet salon listener. Number two it is a powerful da da da you did that you're making that when you see your brother you're saying assalamu Aleikum, it is
a must the meaning of Assalamu alaykum May peace be upon you all Mahabharata and the blessings and mercy of Allah be upon you look at that.
That's number two. And number three, you are spreading POSITIVE VIBRATIONS because the minute you make dua for someone is it possible for that individual now to harbor grudges? In the sense if someone were to greet you Is it possible that that individual whilst greeting you can harbor a grudge against you can then individual harbor toxic feelings towards you say you are to greet someone can you have a toxic feelings in your heart and greet someone then your salon would be so demonic you would give a very tight lips around but if it's a warm Salaam salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah you're sharing those positive vibrations. It's such a powerful greeting and look
whenever wherever we meet, what do we do we say assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is reported to have said to an individual who asked him which of Islam is the best, or which Muslim is the best Muslim? Sunni Islam Islam is referred to as the one who greets those who knows and those who does not know. You don't only greet the people you know, or the people you're familiar with. You meet someone a believer Muslim holla you greet him as Sarah Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh it is from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you're spreading goodness, you're spreading peace. You're acting upon the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi
wasallam. And think about it. Look at all these positive vibrations spreading around. Think about your society. Think about your community. Think about your home. When you enter your house, you're entering the house with the greetings of Islam, with the greetings of the angels with the greetings of the Prophet sallahu wa salatu salam with the greeting of Allah, the people of Jenna.
Allah azza wa jal will greet them with this greeting As salam, O Allah.
Allah, Allah, and then we will respond to Allah Allahumma anta Sara woman kiss Salam.
O Allah you are set out You are the source of peace woman case Salaam and peace is from you. The Baraka Yeah.
Glory be unto you and we will external and exalt Allah azza wa jal.
So it's a powerful piece of advice. I mean, the Muslims spread the greeting of peace, and in general we spread peace wherever we go. And this is why it is important that we become ambassadors of peace. I was in Nigeria a few days back
A talk that I delivered was under this topic, ambassadors of peace and goodness wherever you go, you are an ambassador of Islam. You are an ambassador of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that means you are an ambassador of peace and goodness just as how he said a long while ago and he was
he was an individual as per the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the noble for an index Allah Allah Hello, okay, now the Mohammed said Allah, Allah, Allah sent him You are indeed upon a high caliber when it comes to good manners. As soon as Islam was so well mannered, he was a kind hearted, positive good individual.
So nationalism is reported to have said that two matters that will lead people mostly to gender two things. And being attentive here two things number one tug of war. And this is why we generally advise ourselves and the masses, often to bring in taqwa to be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's number one. And number two, personal good conduct you want to enter gender, be a person of good conduct, be a person of kind words, be a person who smiles be a person who does not harbor hatred, grudges and whatnot toxic feelings in your heart, be a person of good conduct.
Another narration the prophets analysis report to have said that the ones who will be closest to me in paradise in general
the ones who are the best in terms of their conduct, the ones who are the best in terms of their manuals.
Once a person goes to the professor, listen him and he says Yasuda law advise me outsunny advise me and what did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam look at the man and say, let's realize that Islam did not go into in depth discussions in regard to effect of data. I'm not undermining the sciences, but look at the concise piece of advice that he's placed in him gave the man
do not lose your temper. Do not lose your temper.
The man, he asks the professor line his name again, jasola advise me I want something substantial. I want something heavy. I want a big piece of advice. Again, Bob, do not lose your temper for Iran, and he went on asking and assume Isilon Islam kept on saying blah, blah, blah, blah. Do not lose your temper. Do not lose your temper. It may be an easy piece of advice, but when one tries to walk the talk, then it is tough. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala. He describes the people of taqwa in the Quran. And what does he say Azerbaijan
in a mobile field.

once the Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he goes to bilello the alarm one and a discussion breaks out and what happens is the discussion you know somehow becomes a bit heated up and he looks at without the alarm one two companions this companion looks at below the alarm line.
And he addresses him Oh son of a black woman. Oh son of a black woman because he lost his temper.
Now what happens is that a lot while he when he was 11 gets wind of this and he looks at this companion and he says I feel that there is still genelia inside you. I feel that there is still Joy helia inside you. I know the name of the companion but at the end of the day that is not important. And that's why I'm
Not mentioning the name of the companion. The lesson is what is important and less deduce the lesson in Sharla. No sooner this companion a famous companion, no sooner he heard these words and the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it was a wake up call, he rushes back to be louder the alarm line, he apologizes, he seeks the forgiveness of billetto the alarm one so much to the extent that he placed his cheek on the ground on the ground, and he looks at below the allamani and says yeah,
I want you to place your foot on my cheek and disgrace me the way I disgraced you
look at the Sahaba look at them good conduct, look at their manners and this is the reason they are known as rhodiola.
As human beings we lose our tempers at times we say certain things just like the companion did. But look, he was very quick in understanding that you know what I did was wrong. Let me go rectify the situation. Let me go apologize. Let me go seek the man's forgiveness and he did so.
not only rhodiola one
Rahim Allah, even for saying even and even
the grandson of Allah rhodiola one, ie the son of forsale. Olivia long one, the son of Alabama before liberati a long line. He was known as it because he his name was it is also known as David Abilene urashima hula. Once he was walking on the streets, and a man comes up to him and starts to insult and he was in Aberdeen. mahoba he insults him. He goes on insulting him and Ollie rahima, who was in love with the normal love was listening to the man patient.
Quietly without uttering a word. This man goes on insulting, insulting giving his firing away bazookas inspiring. He listens to all the insults. And once he was done, he looks at the man and he says, I thank you. I thank you. Because all that you mentioned, I have more defects. I have more mistakes within me and I'm grateful that you did not mention all of that here. I'm grateful that you did not mention all the other defects and mistakes that I have within me out here and you only mentioned a little and because of that I thank you. He removes his upper garment. He was wearing a robe or something he removed the upper garment and he gifted it to the man and he also gifted him
1000 dirhams. The man was perplexed he was just blown away. I just insulted this man left right and center in the middle in the in the in the town square if you will. And this man is so patient. He could not help but say I had to I bear witness that you are none other than the grandson of Mohammed Salah while you listen, you are truly the grandson of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam there is no way no other way that you can behave like this, if not for the fact that you are his grandson, because he was such a role model Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. As you can see, my time is up just based on that one piece of advice. There are three other pieces of advice I'll run through the
translation inshallah, and maybe another day we'll go in depth. The second piece of advice that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam shared at that juncture was to feed the hungry
this is a way where we can give back to society. This is a way where we become community oriented activists, Mohammed salesianum was establishing this at that point and there are you know, beautiful stories that we can go into in terms of Maha in terms of the Brotherhood that was established in Medina, where a Mahajan was put with and Ansari and and there was so much of unity, so much of love amongst the people of Medina at that time, so many beautiful examples. The sooner is an incident at that point established it authority to feed the hungry, feed the orphans Give, give from your wealth, give from the food that you have. Today we become we spend a lot Yes, but we spend on
ourselves, we find it very difficult to take it out, take out our wallets and give money when it comes to giving others when it comes to gifting others when it comes to feeding the hungry when it comes to feeding the orphans. Why did the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam say in regard to looking after the orphans, that the person who looks after an orphan he and I will be like this on the day of the AMA or in general Allahu Akbar, you want to be with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam like this, then look after an orphan. You can adopt an orphan there are rulings you can refer to a scholar and understand the rulings. But apart from that, you can even just look after an orphan you
can maintain an orphan there are many orphans here in our country. There are many orphans in other countries you can spend if you have money you can spend on the education you can spend on their clothing you can spend on their food, and you will be with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam like this on the day of theonomy Eliza will grant us all that opportunity I mean,
Osceola have the tip, the third piece of advice, maintain ties of kinship.
This is a very, very powerful and important piece of advice. In one particular Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is reported to have said
that the one who wishes that his life be extended the sense that he be given a long life and the one who
wishes that His provision be expanded. If you want a result from Allah subhanho wa Taala to be expanded, and if you want a long life, maintain ties of kinship, or salicylate Islam, as reporter said, let him maintain ties of kinship is supposed to maintain your ties of kinship, at times are very friendly with our friends. But when it comes to our relatives, we don't talk to our own siblings. We don't talk to our own parents. We don't talk to our grandparents we don't talk to our uncle's maternal paternal uncles. These are all ugly things that are not from the teachings of Islam. When it comes to parents, the matter becomes very, very serious and I have highlighted this
many a time if things have gone sour with your parents, make sure that you rectify them right away. Don't wait. Don't think you know what the next time I visit them maybe next month or maybe for the next read. Some of us we only visit our parents when it comes about when I go for the rest of Ramadan, I will perhaps patch up things What if you die before that? Or what if your parents died before that I don't want to sound negative, but death is a reality that we all have to face and it can come at any time. May Allah azzawajal grant us all good endings, I mean, so please don't wait till it's too late. If you have relationships that have gone sour, please rectify them and maintain
your ties of kinship. One particular powerful Hadith codici the narration goes along the lines of these words, Allah azza wa jal states and this is a report cross personalized lm that are Rahim the term the term Rahim which means kinship has been derived from one of my name is Rama Rahim, Rama, you know from mercy and aligns it with those states that the one who maintain ties of kinship, I will maintain my link with that individual. And then the next part is very severe. I want you all to pay an attentive year, the one who severs or cuts ties of kinship, I Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying this, I will cut my relationship with him. Law.
Are you ready to pay that price? Do you want your relationship to be cut by Allah subhanho wa Taala you are doomed. Make sure that you patch up things. Even if they're on the wrong, you do the right thing you'll be the better person you go take a gift go and give them gifts, the lambs forgive them. And if they don't forgive you, if they're not ready to patch up things, at least you have done your part and you are free in the coat of a loss of Hannah Montana. May Allah azza wa jal help us all to do. So. The final piece of advice was fun to be lady Vanessa young. Wake up, wake up, do the wee hours of the morning the night and pray once the people are sleeping. You see today? Yes, we are
going through a lot of trials. We're going through a lot of challenges locally, internationally. And we tend to grumble complain, we tend to play the blame game we do all of this in regard to our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. At times we go for meetings, we spend hours and hours and hours discussing strategies discussing all kinds of things. You know, we need to do this, we need to have this protest. We need to do all of this and you go home in the night you're surrounded with
nothing. What's the point? You've lost the game. You mixed up all of your priorities. See, the sooner Alison mentioned all these important pieces of advice and then he capped it off by saying Don't forget your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala make sure you wake up at night and cry in front of the King of all kings, the Lord of all worlds. If you practice all these pieces of advice, the perfect balance is struck and you the Muslim Ummah will be granted success in this world as well as the hereafter. And finally the robber solanacearum kept off the narration by saying third the full agenda to be Salam. If you practice on these pieces of advice, you will enter Jenna with
peace and Allah azza wa jal help us all to entertain with peace. I mean with that I conclude after the hour
