When we talk about knowledge when we talk about Deen many people they say that we want to hear something that is new something that we have never ever heard of. But Subhanallah when you observe the community at large, one thing that we notice is that it is not only sufficient that we teach our kids o'clock and add up, and it is not sufficient that we teach our youngsters about this Kia but these are three important topics that we have to remind ourselves on a daily basis. We observe when we observe we see that there are even adults who really do not represent us was a solemn, their character is lacking, their character is suffering, their luck is suffering there is suffering

00:00:43 --> 00:01:23

before even Islam, even Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he had a club this is why he said boar is to live with him. macadam, Allah, I have been sent to perfect character. When you say perfecting something, it's not that you're building something. It's not that you are establishing something. It is as if there's something's already established. And now I'm going to complete it. I'm going to perfect something. When you studied the Arabs long time ago, even before the coming of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. They had a lot of character in them. They had a dab in them. They had mannerisms in them, but Rasul Allah, He said, Allah was on came and he perfected it.

00:01:23 --> 00:01:46

And when we studied the Quran, there are two places in the Quran where Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, The best example for you is in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the very first place that we find this idea that they can Lakhan fie rasool Allah He was what en hacer una Lehmann, Kenny Lapa Kyla configures Hassan Lehmann.

00:01:49 --> 00:01:50

There that's

00:01:51 --> 00:01:51


00:01:53 --> 00:02:37

Okay, so the move to Kerala conference today was with the Hasina. Then Allah says woman yoga and a lot of homies are missing the island. But anyway, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, The best example for you is in Ross was a Salam. Now why is the suit Oh, this is mentioned. So the Malta enum. So the moon tahina talks about affiliation. So the moon tahina talks about alliances, Allah subhanho wa taala. He's saying at the beginning of the ayah Surah, let the Hebrew I do we do welcome Alia to him, build my word that Allah is remind the Muslims that make pay close attention to your allegiances. Pay close attention to your alliances, pay attention to who are you sitting with? Who

00:02:37 --> 00:03:18

are you standing with? Who are you with on a daily basis? And who do you Align yourselves with? And in reminding us that what is Allah telling us? We always remember that the best example is in the example of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how did Roswaal some work with the unbelievers? How did he work with the kuffaar? How do you work with the disbelievers at the same time, he kept political alliances and at the same time, he never compromise in his Deen. Today, when we talk about America, one of the biggest issues that we have today is when we talk about first of all, all these isms that do exist in our society. When we talk about their alliances, today's so many Muslims, they

00:03:18 --> 00:03:59

align themselves with these wrong ideologies. They stand by these ideologies, they align themselves with these ideologies. Allah is reminding us that while you live in a society and these fitness do occur, how do you handle those fitness? How do you work with the people in the community without even compromising your dean? Because our dean is not a dean that tells you that go ahead and completely destroy yourself or disregard yourself and completely isolate yourself from the entire community? No, that's not what our Dean says. Or Dean says, You have to be part of the community we never find in the Sierra of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam besides the beginning or right before the

00:03:59 --> 00:04:40

first one he that he isolated himself from the entire community. After the very first war he the Prophet alayhi salam never isolated himself from the entire community. So of course, we have to be in the part of the community, but how are we going to do it? We are going to do it based on how we see it done from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now the second time this is mentioned is pseudo hijab. Why is that? Because there was a lot of criticisms against Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, what were the criticism against US laws of Salem that how did he marry his his adopted sons ex wife? How did he marry Zane over the Allahu Taala Anna and once again, in that we find that Allah

00:04:40 --> 00:04:59

subhanho wa Taala is telling us that you do not have to pay attention to anyone. You pay attention to who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the face of criticism. You followed us Allah said Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the best example for you in the same surah Allah talks about the the Battle of trenches and the challenges of the Battle of trenches and

00:05:00 --> 00:05:43

In a situation when you're facing challenges, who do you follow? Rasul? Allah He said Allahu alayhi wa sallam this is it is as if Allah is telling us that if you study the entire sutra has up all the challenges that you find a sutra has up, where do you go to to find your solutions to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is why Subhan Allah, so amazingly, in the same sutra that Allah talks about that the Prophet alayhi salam is the example The best example for all of us. Allah says, You're in our salah, Kusha hidden Woba sheath on one of the law, we sent you as we sent you as a person, to give glad tidings to end to get to tell them about the rewards and to and to warn them

00:05:43 --> 00:06:28

about the Hereafter. And we see Subhanallah when the Prophet it is some is giving glad tidings, and he's giving good news and he's warning people this is a balance, this is a bounce of Ardene there is hope and Raja, there is fear and there is hope. And then Allah subhana wa Tada says, What are you and eat Allah he be in the he was the raw Jen will come around Manila, he ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada sent him as a Suraj. Suraj in itself means light. amaron Pomerol means moon money on something that enlightens. Now, when a person is in the state of depression, what do we say? This person is going through a dark time in their life, right? This is what we say. When people go through challenges. It

00:06:28 --> 00:07:04

is symbolic, symbolically translated as what darkness is right. They're going through some dark times in their life. What will bring enlightenment to our life? What will bring hope in our life? It is Rasul Allah He said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, hence Allah subhanho wa taala. We refer to him as karma Ron Mooney Elan, something that will bring enlightenment someone something that will bring hope in your life. So this is why we always go back to Rasul Allah, He said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, so Inshallah, from this point onward for the next many Monday's in sha Allah, because once again, we all have to learn about Rasulullah Salah and we all have to remind ourselves about the

00:07:04 --> 00:07:44

This is a genuine G stands for genuine and the profile of your son was genuine. E stands for exemplary. He was the best example he was an exemplary example. And not only that, the M stands for Model, a genuine exemplary model in Rasulullah sallallahu it was set up and what we're going to talk about Inshallah, in this Monday night series, how did he treat every single person in the community? There was different ways he treated his founding members. What about people in the community? There are people who are sick there are people

00:07:44 --> 00:08:21

who are healthy there were people who had social statuses the Prophet some treated everyone with the highest highest regard How did the possum treat from a political point of view how do you treat his enemies How do you treat his adversaries? How do you treat those people who were critical of him How do you treat those people who went against his family?
