all praise and thanks to Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala we ask him the Lord of all words the exalted to the almighty to shower his choices to blessings and salutations. Upon the final messenger, 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 my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, first and foremost, I remind myself, I enjoy and upon myself and then all of you all present here to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to bring in the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To bring in the consciousness of our maker into our lives.
During every single second of our lives, we need to strive for this if we wish to attain if we wish to achieve victory, and 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,
inshallah Allah The topic for today's kotoba is the tears of a cannon. And we're going to be talking about or at least I'm going to start off the sermon with an incident in regards to a camel that took place during the time of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam.
Emma Buddha, Rahim Allah He makes mention of this hadith in his sunon that once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and if I'm not mistaken, it's Abdullah bin jaffery been a bit more liberal, the long line Homer, who is making mention of the Howdy, once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, WA alayhi wa sallam, and the narration goes along the lines of these words, once he enters into the compound of a, if an individual into the compound of an individual, there was a fenced off section. Perhaps Professor Allison had been invited. Maybe he was visiting this individual he enters the compound of the individual, and there were people seated.
And there were animals as well. There were camels. There was one particular camel,
It's set eyes on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam Phelim nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Hannah was that effect Hi, Nina.
It's started to whine.
And tears started to flow from its backs.
The profits are long while he
goes close to this cabin.
And the Sahaba were with the prophets Allah is Allah. They witness this camel,
almost conversing with the Prophet sallallahu
talking to the prophets that allow it, they can hear the camel weeping. They can hear the camel crying.
They can hear the whining of the cameraman.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam turns around
and he asks sternly, who is the owner of this cameraman?
Who is the owner of this camera come forward?
There was a young man in the crowd who comes forward and says yeah, Rasul Allah, I am the owner of this camera. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then looks at this individual and sternly asks him, a killer huffy her real behavior. He heard the hill Mahima Do you not fear of law? Are you not conscious of Allah? Did you not have the taqwa of Allah? In regards to this animal? It has complained to me that you are ill treating the animal that you are not feeding this animal. It has complained to me that you are not feeding it and that you are over burdening it. Do you not fear Allah in this regard? Allah
My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam Now, obviously, this is the basis for the hotbar. And this narration has so many profound lessons to be deduced.
Primarily, we see the love towards the profits are long while he already was manifesting,
So I'm going to be touching on two facets in Charlottetown. One is the love towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because that is so obvious in this Heidi, the way it's manifesting. Okay, and the one who has love for the Prophet sallallahu sallam, his love, that individuals love
starts to sow across dimensions. His love becomes so powerful because he's loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and then the other facet that I want to touch on, which is also very important, and that is in regards to volume. In regards to oppression. Our Deen Islam teaches us that we are not even allowed to indulge in oppression, even unto animals panela the Hema animal? It is an animal that you own. It is an animal that the Sharia permits you if you want to you can slaughter it, and you can consume the meat. But yet, the Sharia are the same. Deen does not allow you to treat that animal does not allow you to oppress that animal. If that is the case with
animals. Then what about human beings? What about your Muslim brethren? What about your brother? What about your sister? Can you oppress them? Subhan Allah, there is no way at all that we can indulge in such oppression May Allah save us all. So the first facet
the love towards the Prophet sallallahu taala
when you come across these narrations Subhana Allah, you see these animals, these inanimate objects, having so much of love towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one begins to think, if the animals had so much of love, if they professed so much of love for this marvelous being, if inanimate objects as you will see in another few narrations that I'm going to be sharing mind blowing narrations, if inanimate objects can profess their love in such a profound way.
Then why or why
do we the believers find it difficult to profess? True love for Allah Allahu Allah.
Let me give you another narration. If I'm not mistaken, Allah rhodiola one we makes mention of the Hadith, that during the early stages of prophethood, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to walk down the streets, when he would walk down paths, the rocks down those paths, the rocks down those streets, used to cry out and greet the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa blah. The rocks would greet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying peace and blessings be unto you, O Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
final pilgrimage of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
One narration states that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam slaughtered around 63 animals. And some scholars indicate that this was a subtle indication put forth by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in regards to his lifespan 63 so he's not at 63 camels. And the narrator's state that the animals were bought, were brought in batches of five to be slaughtered. So five animals were brought, and individually they were slaughtered.
And the narrator's state that each batch of five cameras were competing with one another to rush to the hands of the Prophet for the lava
to be slaughtered.
Today when you take slaughter, Islam teaches us how to slaughter of animals. Sadly, most of us we don't slaughter the animals the way the dean has taught us to start at the end.
When you have brought in an animal to slaughter, the dean teaches us your instrument, your knife needs to be sharp. It should be sharp. You must attempt to slit the throat of the animal
One slit so as to not cause it pain, you must not show the animal, the object the knife. You must not slaughter an animal in front of another animal, nor should that animal even see the blood of the previous animal that was slaughtered if multiple animals are being slaughtered.
And when the animal is brought, you're supposed to calm it down. You're supposed to give it some water to drink.
And so Panama This is with experience. Even just a week ago, I think
I slaughtered a few animals. And as I was seated with the animals when you read, because the animal is panicking, now, the animal is scared. Okay, it can sense things. But when you sit down and when you start stroking it, and when you read Bismillah Hilda de la, yo, Tomas, many other developers some of you who were semi alien, In the name of Allah, nothing can harm except by the will of Allah by the power of Allah. And when you read Bismillah when you say Allahu Akbar, when you keep reading it, my dear brothers in Islam,
if you slaughter do it yourself and you will witness it, the animal will immediately calm itself down. It subdues itself.
You can ask the brothers who are with me if you know them, they will tell you how the animal submits to the call. It is being called.
It is going to be slaughtered With the name of Allah for the sake of Allah. The animal immediately submits itself to the court.
And then you're supposed to slaughter it quickly, swiftly.
If that is the case, with us, mere ordinary human beings, sinners, we are not worth of anything. Then think about the animals rushing to the blesser the hands of Mohammed Salah Longo and even
the animals were competing, to rush to be slaughtered by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam this was the love that they had for the Prophet sallallahu earlier he was
when when you go into the chapter in regards the love towards the prophets of Allah, some of the scholars bring about narrations. There's another narration where once a companion
he catches a bird, he catches a bird.
He catches the bird from its nest, the little one actually the little bird and the mother as well if I'm not mistaken, and now he has the two birds or at least the mother one bird in his sleeve. Okay he has caught the bird and the bird is in his sleeve. And he enters into the presence of Mohammed Salaam.
He enters the court of the prophets Allah Allah, Allah Allah.
Allah sort of life said a long way that you will sell and looks at this companion and he asks him, oh, my companion, what is in your hand? What is in your hand?
The companion then takes out the bird. And he shows it to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and now he is trembling because he's in front of the rock of Samadhi. Very, very seldom and he he opens his hands and normally what happens when you open your hands when you have a bird that you have held? A bird? Okay, when you open your hands, what happens? The bird flies, obviously it's going to take flight.
But this bird remains in submission because it knows that it is in the presence of Mohammed Salah mama you ended up selling. It knows it is in the court
of the prophets Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this is a court. Unlike worldly courts, this is a court filled with the justice.
No volume, no oppression will take place in the port of Mohammed Salah Mahal
and then it complains to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the sort of law Hey Sal, Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam,
the teacher of love.
The prophet of love, the kind of Prophet, the Merciful Prophet, Omar al Seneca naka de la rama Selena, I mean, he was sent as a mercy to mankind.
He tells the companion go back and put the birds back in the place where you took them from Go back, go back immediately allow
another beautiful nation.
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrived in Medina
the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was simple, simple, simple, simple.
He said a long while you were he was selam would deliver the Friday kotoba the way I'm delivering but sapan en la look at this grand min borough that I am on it is a grand pulpit. You
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to lean on the trunk of a date palm. He would lean on it the trunk of a date palm, and he would deliver his.
He would address together. One day. A lady comes to the profits of a long while he really was a lemon. She says
I have a carpenter, who is a skilled carpenter. And if you permit me, I will have him design. a pulpit for you a member for you. I will have him fashion a pulpit I mean bar for you if you permit me to do it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave his permission. Now this lady she has the
pulpit the member carved and built for the prophets for a long while.
Now the next Friday comes about or the next gathering comes about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He climbs the new pulpit and this is a mutawa
what we mean when we say mutawatir mutawatir as in there were so many there are so many narratives narrating the Howdy, because at that time, everybody was witnessing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and each narrator is narrating the narration in his own words.
They all say that the trunk started to shiver, started to tremble. The trunk started to be but started to cry. It started to cry, it was crying like a she camel. When its child is taken away from it. It started to weep. It started to cry because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did not stand by it. Because the Prophet had climbed the new pulpit. They were all witnessing this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam looks at the pulpit weeping looks at the the trunk of the tree, weeping, crying, trembling, shivering. And he said allow it but he was Selim gets down from the pulpit and he goes and he embraces he hugs that trunk, and he calms it down and then it stops. It
stops. It stops
the proper lesson and places his hands on the trunk of the tree.
And he said a long while you it was lm gives the tree a choice as to whether it wants to be in Jenna, feeding the people of Jenna.
And the tree chooses that option.
My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, look at these inanimate objects, these animals professing their love the tree, trembling, shivering, crying, weeping because of the love the profound love that it had for the profits of the rocks renumbering the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
then how do you think our love needs to be towards the profit center long while you're here?
And the best way to profess this love
I know when you read these narrations, tears well up in your eyes, your voice cracks, you can't help it. But the true way to profess your love for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is how? By emulating the prophets of Allah.
But by bringing in his teachings into your life, he tells you, mankind
The one who believes in Allah and the Last Day let him speak a good word or remain silent. But how many of us act upon this hadith
and some of us think this hadith is not applicable in the online world. It is only for speaking not for commenting not for typing. So I can type whatever I want to type. I can comment wherever I want to come in. I can say negative things all I want because I am behind the screen. I am. I am you know, typing through my mobile phone, on WhatsApp groups in messages. I can type whatever I want to type I can break the hearts of people. I can judge
the Hadees applies in the online world as well as the offline world. If you have something good to say say it otherwise, keep quiet.
Memphis nice London Marie Turku. melayani The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says the same Prophet, you are now tears in your eyes welling up thinking about the love for the Prophet. This is the same prophet. These are not my words. These are not my quotes. These are the words of the Prophet that I'm sharing. What does he say it is from the beauty of the Dean of an individual Turku melayani that he leaves. In other words, he minds his own business, he leaves that which does not concern him.
Not poke his nose into affairs he does not poke his nose into affairs that don't concern him.
He minds his own business words of the prophets of Allah Allah.
Now coming back to the other facet, in that same Hadith we study My dear brothers in Islam that we are supposed to avoid Golem. We are supposed to avoid oppression. We have a hadith that has been recorded in the book of Imam Bukhari and Muslim Rahim Allah.
Allah one who he makes mention of the narration and the narration goes along the lines of these words Oh come upon Allah salatu salam, that once an N, one n bit when we mean MBA,
and and one and a bit of profit from the prophets of Allah, and end with a bit of profit from the prophets of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam is making mention of this story. And he says that this prophet of Allah because that one land, bit him, he went and burned the entire entry.
And immediately Allah addresses that Prophet of Allah. Allah asks that Prophet, for one and that bit you, you burned an entire Ummah, an entire nation. That was glorifying me. A lot of what you mentioned earlier you said they fall behind you when I kill that of
the animals around you are glorifying Allah. You don't understand their glorification. The birds as they chopped they're glorifying of law, the thunder as it rumbles it is glorifying Allah, the lightning as it crackles it is glorifying of law, the frogs as they croak they are glorifying Allah, the crickets as they chirp. They are glorifying of law.
But we don't understand the glorification. So Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses this profit you burnt down an entire nation and entire oma just because one land to beat you know, that is oppression that we should not indulge in and the prophets Allah Allah Islam teaches us this
media, brothers and Islam, volume,
it takes on many forms. Mm hmm. Rahim Allah, a great scholar of the past. May Allah bless him, his teachings are profound. He writes in his beneficial book, and
in that he writes that volume when talking about oppression, he says that volume, that oppression is recorded by Allah in three categories in 3d vans in three registers. And then he goes on to explain this is my dear brothers in Islam. This is academic, but it is profound as well. Listen attentively and you will understand and you will be able to implement it in your life, you'll be able to stay away from these forms of Golem these forms of oppression. He says the first category the first register is a type of Golem that Allah will not forgive. If you die,
indulging in this volume, Allah will not forgive you. May Allah save us all. Now Allah save us all. May Allah save us all. I mean, loving sending, I mean, what is this type? Cofer and ship?
If you oppress by
worshiping something else other than Allah or worshiping something along with Allah, in Allah, Allah,
Allah will not forgive what ship
in another place. Allah says in a shirker. The whole moon how the ship is a great Golem is a great operation. It is the greatest form of operations.
When you know that it is Allah who created you, when you can you know that it is Allah who is feeding you, when you know that it is Allah Who gave you this body a lot that gave you this help a lot that gave you the family, the roof over your head, the vehicle that you're driving the food that you're eating, the children that you have, the money that you have. The Diem that you have when you know it is Allah has done everything.
For you, to negate that a law to disregard you to to disregard that a law to deny that Allah it is the biggest form of oppression, may Allah save us all. And this is why that oppression will not be forgiven. That is the first step.
The second register. The second category is a volum lubaina lab, the one I've seen, it is an operation that takes place between a slave and his own lower self. For example, you indulging in your desires, you indulging in your desires, you're committing a sin. you're committing a mistake. You're indulging in something that is haram.
That is between yourself and your next this is a category Allah forgives. Not that we're making light of it. Not that we're making light of it. Even Xenon comes in this even Zener comes in this and I'm not making light of Xena are not saying that we all should indulgence in our May Allah save us all voila takanobu Xena we should not even get close to Xena but Xena comes in this category you have indulged in it. If you sincerely turn to Allah in Toba, Allah will forgive you. And there are ways for you to explain you see the earlier category, the only way for you to expiate it is to hate, you have to believe in Allah. Then you come out of that category, the shift category if you die upon
ship, Allah will not forgive you. But if you turn to Allah tohave you are forgiven. This second category, you tend to ally in Toba, you do good deeds of love and forgive you The second category it is between yourself and your next
the third category is a scary category.
Just like the first one, and you see the first one we could say that Alhamdulillah I am saved La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah I'm not committing Sure. Okay. Alhamdulillah second category, you just told me that now I will be forgiven inshallah and make Toba. I turned to Allah Allah forgives me. The third category My dear brothers in Islam, we indulge in it not understanding the gravity of it. This third category as mentioned by imambara rahima hola lol mahlab bow Rahim Allah.
operation that takes place between the slaves of La
in between one another.
When you wrong another person. So
when you wrong that person by your tongue
when you wrong that person in regards to that person's Well,
when you cheat somebody, when you lie about somebody when you backbite about somebody when you disgrace somebody.
their blood, their honor, their respect. When you infringe upon any of these you have wronged your rights or pupillary bad your rights towards another slave of Allah. And Allah says forgiveness will be subject to that individual, either forgiving you or taking his right from you.
For example, let's say you wronged someone
if you don't go and seek the forgiveness of the individual on the day of the AMA that individual will be given a choice to take back what is his from you? Because you are going to be in front of a just ruler in aloha la escuela de la, not even an atom's weight of injustice will be served by Allah on that day on the day of piano. On that day, your rupees your dollars, your pounds, your money is not going to work. The only currency that you will have on that day will be your deeds, your good deeds, you will have to pay with your good deeds. And if you run out of good deeds, you're bankrupt and move plus you are bankrupt, then the bad deeds of that individual will be transferred over to
your account. So Panama.
My dear brothers in Islam, just ponder on this for a minute.
We strive so hard to do good deeds do we not? We strive hard to come to the masjid and pray in the first row. We strive hard to go in Amara we strive hard to go on Hajj, we strive hard to pray the five daily prayers on time, we strive hard to give out our Sokka our sadaqa to do as many good deeds as possible for what to be able to see it when we stand in front of a wall yes or no. But on that day when you stand in front of Allah, if someone or if some people come and take away all your good deeds and on top of that burden you with your sins. How unfortunate can Allah How unfortunate This is why we need to understand the gravity of this and stay away from all forms of oppression. Stay
away from hurting others stay away from disregarding others, you know some of us we have this superiority complex. When someone who is rich well the powerful greets us we greet them very warmly Mashallah. But when someone who is lower than us who is poor,
comes to us we disregard them, or we don't give them the same amount of importance we gave the rich and important individual, a person in power we give that person so time that people get up and they make way for a person who is in power in politics, in in the in the in the rulership perhaps. Or a person who has money people respect. This is this is oppression.
You have employees who are working under you, they are working for a nominal salary. You are earning in hundreds and 1000s. But you have to pay them their salary on time you delay their salary. They are living with a lot of difficulty. They take that salary and it's not like they're going and investing it in Swiss bank accounts. They take that money and they go and buy food for their family. They buy school supplies for their children, if you delay their salary, it's a punch in their stomachs. It is a no no, you're earning off them. And this is why the professor landlessness report rep said when paying your wages when paying your your laborers, their wages, your employees you
should pay to them before the sweat dries. It's a metaphorical statement. In other words, don't delay it. If you have someone who is working for you before his sweat dries in terms of the work that he has done for you. You need to pay him his wages so that he is satisfied so that his content, many brothers in Islam, the teachings of Islam are very, very clear. If you cannot oppress an animal, there's no way on earth that you can oppress another human being so Panama.
I leave you all.
With one last powerful reminder. The Prophet said a long while he rarely was seldom is reported to have said
it coup. De Waal modelu
fear. Be aware the same words of taqwa. Be aware, be conscious, fear, the law of the oppressed person.
If you oppress someone, you must be careful you must be very, very careful about that person. And look at the Hadith. What in Kanika, Pharaoh Allahu Akbar, even is that person be a cafe.
For inner who Lisa do not have a job, if that person makes against you, even if that person be a cashier, the door will be answered by Allah Subhana. Allah
Let the word sink in.
If someone is oppressed, if you oppress a person, and even if that person is a Catholic, and if that person prays against you, if that person curses, you, says, may you be ruined, may you be doomed. May you die a miserable death, because the person is hurt, because the person is painting.
Maybe you have an employee who is not a Muslim, but you're hurt that person and if that person makes do against you, that door will be answered by Allah even if that person is a cafe. Then what about if that person is a believer Subhana Allah. along the lines of that Hadith is one more Hadith the Prophet slicin reporter said, three doors, unsaid by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah Shakopee in not a shadow of doubt that was answered by Allah, what are these three two as number one?
The Tao of the oppressed person if that person makes da da, da da is answered by a law that will fill the traveler if he or she makes law while traveling the law is answered by our law. So therefore when you are on a journey, when you are traveling, raise your hands and make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. The final person, the hours will lead the quality. Do I have a father and to his child?
That a shadow of doubt it will be answered. If the father makes a good dog, it will be answered if the father curses also, it will be answered how many of us are oppressing our parents today? Children are pressing their parents, children putting their parents in old age homes.
Children disregarding their fathers, not obeying, not eating their fathers.
If the father makes it too hard for you, and as fathers, we have fathers in the crowd as well. Do not curse your children. Do not curse your children, even if it be that you are not serious. Do not curse your child. Because you should know the power of your words. These words that come out from your mouth, immediately answered by our last panel.
That does be very of operation it does stay away from oppression. Media speak to the elders and brothers in Islam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all to stay away from oppression and mean. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to strive for justice, for fairness, integrity and mean. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive all of our sins, may Allah subhanho wa Taala fill our hearts with pure love for Mohammed Salah long
May Allah Subhana Allah, Allah just as how he keeps uniting us here in this Masjid. May He unite us in the beautiful gardens of general fear those mean And may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all with the opportunity to drink at the house at the fountain with more
