Salam alaykum warahmatullahi overcorrection this millennium of many Rahim Al hamdu, Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam.
We begin by praising Allah subhana wa ala, the Almighty, the Lord of all was horrible. I mean, Malik Yomi, Dean, Owner of the Day of Judgment, and we asked him to send his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam his family members, his companions, and every single individual who treads on his path with the flawless with sincerity until the end of time.
I start off by reminding myself and then all of you all were gathered here for Salah to Joomla. To adopt a life of Taqwa. And that is to be that is to bring in the consciousness of Allah, to bring in the consciousness of your makeup. And you should do this if you wish to attain victory and success in this world, as well as the hereafter May Allah subhanahu Medina, make us all from the people have taqwa and may make us from the victorious and successful ones. I mean.
We have to thank Allah subhanahu wa Dyana for making us from the Ummah, from the nation of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was said.
We are in a beautiful month, a month
that we learn through the big books of history,
wherein our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam was born in
so the title
for my sermon this afternoon is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam as if you are seeing him in front of you.
Please remember Salah whenever I mentioned his beautiful name, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So in sha Allah, Allah Allah.
In the few minutes that I have with you all, I want to go through certain narrations that touch on the Shema, IL. In other words, the attributes of our beloved messenger sallallahu alayhi, wa aalihi wa sallam.
Now before venturing into the dazzling and sweet meadows of the attributes of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it is essential to prepare our hearts by calling to mind the nature of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in a holistic way. Now the whole purpose behind the sermon
is to kindle love, true love, towards the messenger in your heart, in sha Allah Diala after today's sermon, I want you to go home with your heart, ablaze with love and to him sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam
he was, as Allah says in the Quran, Allah Azza Naka Illa Ramadan did it mean he was sent as a mercy.
He is the role model.
The best teacher, the best husband, the best father, the best leader, the best role model the best in everything Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and please bear in mind. For today's sermon, we are going to address physical attributes of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But along with that it is also important. So I want the sermon to serve as a stepping stone for you to further your knowledge with regards to your messenger learn about him outwardly and inwardly.
We shouldn't undermine either aspect. The outwardly aspect as well as the inwardly you're not allowed to discount either aspect.
You must embrace the profit in a holistic way. Embrace his outwardly aspects and embraces inwardly aspects.
He was an extremely emotionally intelligent individual, extremely emotionally intelligent individual. He dealt with community, he dealt with the hearts of people. He navigated through emotions, in a very beautiful way with utmost Grace utmost Grace.
So it's important to study his life in a holistic way, where you embrace his outwardly aspects and inwardly aspects in terms of his
framework of mind.
You see, when you sit down and think about it, you are intrigued. This man, the best in everything, how did his mind work?
How did his mind work? How did he achieve all of this? How am I to emulate him? How did he deal how did he interact with other people,
such an emotionally intelligent individual sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The other day I was talking about,
languages of love. And the discussion was based on a book authored by Dr. Gary Chapman, the five languages of love. Now, that particular book is specifically in the context of between spouses, between a husband, relationships between spouses between a husband and a wife. Okay, it's a very good book, if you have not read it, it's a good read. And after authoring that book, he goes on to co author another book titled, The Five Love Languages of children of children. Now, this is a book about parenting, about how you're supposed to express your love to your child. Now, you might be thinking, Well, I love my child, or I love my children, and I express my love. But what he
highlights in the book is that you may be expressing your love, but perhaps your child is not understanding the love that you're expressing. Perhaps the child is interpreting it in the wrong way. So it's important for you to understand how a child may express his or her love, and how you are supposed to express your love identifying the child's primary love language. So one of the love languages in that book and in the other book as well, that he highlights is the love languages of gifting. Now, this is a recent book, by the way, the love language of gifting where he says for certain children, for certain individuals, their primary love language is gifts giving gifts by
giving gifts they express love.
So for certain children as well, it's their primary love language. For most children, it's their secondary, but for some, it's the primary that by giving gifts you express your love. Now what am I trying to prove or highlight here 1400 odd years ago, your messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said the hideout the hub to give gifts, you will love one another. Look at the emotional intelligence of this great prophet of others, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa give gifts you will love one another. This is what I'm trying to highlight my dear brothers in Islam, it's important to go into his life in a holistic sense from an emotional angle, from a psychological
From a historical angle, there are so many angles to go into his life and deduce lessons to apply in your life. Now having highlighted the importance of embracing him sallallahu alayhi wasallam in a holistic way. I'd like to mention a narration
enhancer of your loved one who he narrates, and by the way, who was Anasazi, a loved one and it's a bit of Malika de la Mora who was a youngster. And he says in the narration, I was with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for 10 years in the service of the prophets, Allah, Allah Islam for 10 years. And he says, For as long as I was with him, I
never even heard on
and off is the smallest expression of disgust. Maybe we don't use often our context, but something like chi or you know, expressing disgust, I did not witness even the smallest expression of disgust from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for 10 years I was with him. Now, this is food for thought. My dear brothers in Islam. You see the pub, the public domain? It is it is easy to portray this lily white picture to the public to extended circles. But the circles that are close to you, your family, your spouse, your children, if you are an employer, your employees that's where
the question arises, can be a test attest to your good conduct. Can they attest to your manners? Can they attest to your good character? Can they attest to your gender?
prosity can they attest to your good heartedness, your soft hearted plus, can they? Or are you showing one side to the public domain and another personality at home?
Look, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his extended circles had only good to speak about him, his close circles, his intimate circles had only good to speak about him. SallAllahu Olivetti was such a great individual, and also the Allah one who he goes on to say, I have never touched silk, or a silky garment softer than the hands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, nor have I smelled a perfume or a scent, that is more sweet smelling than the fragrance than the scent of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Now, very swiftly, I want to share a powerful and detailed narration.
And you know what I think this is the most comprehensive and detailed narration that we have of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is the narration of UMA but now was that Oh, My bed was an elderly lady, who had her tent pitched by the outskirts. She was a very generous and hospitable lady, and she had the habit of entertaining travelers as they would pass by she would feed them she would give them milk to drink, she would allow them to rest by her attend, rejuvenate themselves, water their animals and continue their journey. So this is Omar. But now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during his era is migrating he Abu Bakr Siddiq are the Allahu Anhu and a
guide. They are migrating. They stop by the 10th of Omar but
to rest, knowing about uma Muhammad's generosity and hospitality they stopped by her attempt to rest. Now on that particular day, Omar Bertha did not have anything at home to
you know, give her guests she had nothing at home. So they were tired as well. They were hungry, they were tired. They were thirsty. So eventually the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he sees a sheep a goat by the 10th so he asked Mama Bear Yeah, oh my God, but dear Oh, mama bed. What about the sheep? What is wrong with it? So Oh, my bed, then she responds that this sheep is weak, it's fatigued. It doesn't, you know, provide milk because it's extremely weak. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he asks for the sheep to be brought to him. So the sheep or that goat was brought to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he mentioned the name of Allah he praises
Allah and runs his hand over the other of the sheep. Lo and behold, the sheep's starts to stand up and the other begins to fill with milk. The Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam asks for a bowl and he starts to milk the animal and that entire bowl was filled with milk. He offers the boy to Omar but she drinks to her fill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brings to his failed Abu Bakr Siddiq of Yamaha who brings to his fill that guide brings to his fill, and then the bowl was placed again and the animal was milked, and there was a second bowl a full bowl that came out from the animal.
After a period of time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he rests he rejuvenates himself and he leaves. Now uma Ubud was observing all of this, and from this narration, you will understand how vigilant how intelligent she was. She observed everything carefully because this, by the way, is a miracle. It's a phenomenon and it's something out of the norm. She was observing every detail carefully.
After the Prophet leaves after a while, the husband of uma bed now comes home. He comes very tired, he is a shepherd his animals all week he returns home to see a full bowl of milk. He was surprised, so he asks his wife about milk
then she responds by saying, law Walla he in who Marla Bina Raju loan mobile rockin min highly he could
know by Allah, there was a Raju Barak, a blessing man who passed by attempt today. Now the husband of Omar but was intrigued. His curiosity was piqued what's going on? So he tells his wife Sophie Lee Yeah Oh mama, but can you please describe him for me? Oh mama but this Raju this blessed man
Okay, so now, my dear brothers in Islam listen attentively, listen attentively to me. Listen to the description of your messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam set ablaze your hearts with the love for your messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam my mother, my father and myself be ransomed and sacrificed for him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

Hola, hola, como. Let me give you another narration Tjaarda ribbon Sumeragi one one who here reports.
It was a night
when the moon was full, a full moon night. We had one just recently last week. You know, those of us who are living in an urban setting, it's a beautiful sight despite being in an urban setting, we are in a concrete jungle. Yet if you're able to go out and get a glimpse of the moon. It's a beautiful sight. For those of you who visit the countryside, often the countryside it's a whole other ballgame. Why? Because it's green landscape. It's the mountains in the distance. I've said this before as well unfortunately, because we're here we're looking at objects very close by why we don't get to look afar but when you go into the countryside, you're constantly looking afar, constantly
looking afar. Now I want you to imagine this is the thing don't just read the Hadith imagine put yourself in the shoes of Jabberwocky Allah one in the middle of the desert. Sand Dunes, no light pollution whatsoever. You look up at the heavens and you can see the stars you can see the night in all its clarity. And you see the full moon and at that juncture, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam comes out wearing a red cloak, red cloak Jabara the one who he says, I looked at my messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I looked at the moon, I looked at the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam I looked at the moon, I looked at the messenger sallallahu alayhi
wasallam and I looked at the moon, and then it says, Allah, by Allah my messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is more beautiful is more handsome is more striking than the full moon on such a night
I'm striving to paint a pin picture for you my dear brothers in Islam to set ablaze your hearts with love for Him love for him. Unfortunately, today, I am the generation who are we taking as role models?
People from the Hollywood industry people from the Bollywood industry, social media quote unquote influencers celebrities, Instagram celebrities, YouTube, celebrities tick tock influences the prophets Allah Allah Islam, he says amaro mom and a hub, the individual is going to be with whom he loves. Tomorrow, the day of the AMA, do you want to be resurrected with saved individuals? Ahmed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he is the best role model? Why are we not following him? I'm going to mention one more incident and then we'll conclude to illustrate the love that the Sahaba had for the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam.
I'm sure you all know below for the alarm
below for the alarm, the mood of the Prophet sallallahu
the name of the Prophet Muhammad Yunus.
He loved the messenger dearly dearly.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passes away and below the Allah One who is not able to contain himself. Why? Because the vacuum is too much the emptiness is too much. Every street in Medina used to remind him of the prophets of Allah money values. Every branch should remind him of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was finding it so difficult to contain himself that eventually after the demise of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he leaves Medina he leaves muddy and he goes towards the mission towards Damascus. He goes towards Damascus, the books of history mentioned this incident. He goes to Damascus, he marries there and he settles there. Now
after a period of time one night
he sees a dream. And who does he see in the dream Mohamed Salah from the USA sallam.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his dream how many of us can touch our hearts and say that I've seen the messenger in my dream, yet we claim to love him.
Let it not be just hot out of our tongues let us live up to the claim of loving him Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by emulating him as much as possible. Like I said at the very beginning in a holistic sense. There is no point in just embracing the outward
The aspects whilst your heart is not like the heart of the messenger, your heart is ready to backbite your heart is ready to lie. Your heart is ready to gossip. Your heart is ready to slander. Your heart is ready to look down upon others. Your heart is ready to be jealous of others that how have you embraced the Prophet? You have to embrace him in a holistic way like I highlighted at the beginning. So below the Allahu Anhu he sees the Prophet in his dream and the Prophet asks him yeah below
what is the meaning of this? Why have you not come to visit me? Below the Allah one who he wakes up all disturbed and flustered, his wife asks him what is what happened? He says, I saw the messenger I saw my messenger in a dream and I have to go visit Medina.
So he travels he goes to Medina Villa
as he enters Medina who welcomes him Hassan and Hussein, Sayed Shiva, the religion
or the Obama one whom are the grandsons of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they are very young, not even 10 years of age, they come running to him and they embrace Him, they hug him because they love him dearly, and he loves them dearly. As he embraces them as he hugs them. He gets the fragrance of their grandfather Muhammad sallallahu alayhi, WA early US, the grandchildren, the beloved grandchildren of the Prophet sallallahu and they cry out, they say below, we want you to call out the oven for us and beloved the Allahu Anhu. Now at that juncture, he cannot bring himself to say no to the grandchildren of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he agrees he goes to his
usual spot to call out the Adan
and he raises his voice and he calls out the Allahu Akbar.
His call, echoes across Medina reverberates across Medina and the people of Medina the men and women of Medina, the children of Medina. They look at one another, it is the man of below Allah.
their hearts leap with joy. They asked one another it is the call of Bilal it is the amount of benign
has our messenger been sent back to us Mohamed Salah bah.
Has the profit being revived again has been sent back to us the hearts leap with joy. Their faces are radiant, the old rushing out and beloved your loved one who goes on with his Advan I had one
he goes on with this Adan the people are rushing out the flocking they're making their way. They're coming towards the Masjid. heeding the call of below expecting the messenger
then below the above one who comes to the next statement
and he's not able to contain himself.
Tears start flowing down his eyes.
He's not able to continue the other than his voice starts to break. Why? Because the messenger is no more
the people rejoicing because the thinking the messenger has been sent back but he knows the reality his voice starts to break and he stops he cannot continue the alarm. He comes down.
My dear brothers in Islam that day in Medina
was the darkest and saddest day after the day that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam passed away Medina Tomonaga the city of lights they were all so sad. Their hearts heavy missing the messenger sal Allahu Allah You said this, my dear brothers in Islam was the love that they had for the messenger.
Therefore, you know during a month like this and whenever we speak about the messenger and if you claim to love him salaam Ali while he was selling them, the best way to express and profess that love is by following emulate him so long
as he says
Allah says in the Quran, to Lincolnton to hipbone Allah, but only if you love Allah and if you love the messenger of Allah, then follow the messenger of allah sallallahu.
As it rains outside, the messenger says that you do another answer. I pray sincerely, we say I mean, may Allah azza wa jal fill our hearts with pure love for the messenger, holistic love Bevy embracing holistically his outwardly aspects and inwardly aspects. May Allah azza wa jal help us to emulate him in every way possible may fill our hearts may our hearts or throw with love to the extent that we don't bring any other role model other than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he is our role model Mohamed Salah who Allah
may Allah azza wa jal forgive us of our sins may accept our good deeds and just as how he united us all here our hearts are trembling as well. Tears are flowing down our eyes we love him. So yeah Allah unite us with him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the loftiest gardens of Jana and bless each and every one of us to drink from the fountain to the Blessed hands of Abba messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa seldom I mean, I mean was there that way I didn't come to the the the island
