So I was thinking about what exactly to talk about today how to talk on budget. And in light of the fact that we are in the month of Robbie oh well, and this is the month where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born and this is the month where in he departed from this dunya I thought it was

00:00:18--> 00:01:03

suitable to talk about, why do we need to study the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what's the need to study the Sierra of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So inshallah just going to share a few reasons. And hopefully this does inspire us and motivate us to really go into the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and learn learn more about this man, first of all, is that we do understand that there is no person who has been documented, whose life has been documented and recorded as much as the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I say this without any exaggeration, when you go and you start to study other people, people in general, people

00:01:03--> 00:01:41

who have had an impact in society, people who have had a major who have made impacts on a country level, and so forth, you study their lives, and you'll probably find one book two books, few articles here and there, but Subhanallah when you say the life of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there are several books after CEDAW books on the life of Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was setting them and if that was not enough, we find the Shama in of Rasulullah sallallahu, ala he was sending them and if that was not enough, there are so many Allamah in scholars who have written different aspects. They have shed light on the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from

00:01:41--> 00:02:31

different angles just to provide for us who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was. So this is why there is no doubt in the fact that this is the most documented man. This is a man that after whom the his name Hamid, we find that in this ummah, in the time that we live in today, the most kept name is Muhammad. And not only that, where we find that this is a man that Subhanallah a lot of times we don't even realize, and we don't contemplate about this, but this is a man whose name is being mentioned 24/7 around the globe, every single time when there is an event that is taking place, anytime around the world at some small masjid or a big Majan a small city, a big city,

00:02:31--> 00:03:16

anytime the event is taking place, and the oven is reciting. And he's saying I shall do anna Muhammadan rasul Allah, think about this. 24/7 No matter how many people are trying to discredit Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was selling them. They're trying to smear the reputation of Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was selling them Subhanallah This is a man whose name is mentioned 24/7 around the globe. This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala he meant when he says and so in Shira, we're off on like the crowd. We will elevate the status of Rasulullah sallallahu ala some, this is how Allah subhanho wa Taala he elevates the status of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Another reason why we say

00:03:16--> 00:03:58

the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is simply to get to know who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, we cannot know the morals, the love the character, the demeanor of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from the Quran, we have to go back into the Syrah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If I want to know their iba of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we don't find that in the Quran. We find that in the Sierra of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what was his mama not like what was How was his interaction between him and other people on different levels, different people in the society. We learned that not in the Quran, but

00:03:58--> 00:04:37

we learned that from the Sira of Rasulullah sallallahu ala you were sending them and it goes without saying that ensuited zap Allah subhanho wa Taala he says la casa que la FEA rasool Allah He was what en hacer una that the best example that you can find, no matter what situation you find yourself in. The best example that you can go back to and you can resort to is the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Another reason why we say the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is simply to increase our love for the Prophet Sal, Allahu Allah, he was setting them. And it's a you know, really, it's a domino effect. If you think about it, the more we study the life of the

00:04:37--> 00:05:00

prophets of salaam, the more we will love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the more we love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the more it will promote us and motivate us to stay the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, And subhanAllah it's a known fact. When you really want to know someone. When you love someone, then you always go back to his law.

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

If we always are taught all of our life and we're going to always be taught for the rest of our life, that how much we need to love Rasulullah sallallahu it was setting him the only way to come close to Allah subhanho wa Taala is none other through the path of Rasulullah sallallahu I knew he was sending him. So that is why if we truly say the I love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I need to emulate my life behind the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that can only be achieved through studying the surah of Rasulullah sallallahu it was send them another reason why we say the Sunnah of the Prophet Salam is to better understand the Quran. There are so

00:05:39--> 00:06:23

many aspects of the Quran that we don't understand, without going into the CETA of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So for example, when Allah subhanho wa taala, he mentions the life of the Prophet alayhi salam, or we find in the Sierra, that there was a period after the first worry that there was no more hate. And at that time, Rasulullah sallallahu, some began thinking to himself that what I had initially experienced, was that just a one off experience, is that just a one off story? Am I going to keep on experiencing this or not? And he wanted to experience this, and that is why there was a sense of hopelessness, that had come into life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:06:23--> 00:07:06

sallam, but Allah subhanho wa taala, he sent down Sudha, wok Doha, and in this this is a, this is Allah subhanho wa taala, saying that just like the sun, it appears from behind the horizon, and there is light that comes and eliminates darkness. Likewise, there's a certain level of hopelessness darkness in your life, but we will remove that and we will send our he you cannot understand through the word Doha without saying the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and not only that, but there are so many aspects of the Quran, that if you do not go back to the CEDAW, you cannot understand the Quran. So another reason of setting the CEDAW of the Prophet SAW Selim is to better

00:07:06--> 00:07:51

understand the Quran. And another reason why we study the seed of the Prophet Salam is because it provides us hope. It provides us optimism, that no matter what the situation is, I will always find a way out ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala will create a way out and how do we know that from the CEDAW brothers and sisters Subhanallah when you study the life of the prophet sunnah, we will learn that no matter what situation you and I we find ourselves in, we will find a similar situation in the life of the prophets, I was setting them hopelessness, how often do we find ourselves in a situation of hopelessness, you will find cases in the life of Rasulullah salaam, where he also fade hope he

00:07:51--> 00:08:28

faced hopelessness when you feel that the entire world is against you. There was also times in the life of the prophet that Saddam where he felt that the entire world was against him, when you feel that there you are in a financial constraint, you will find the solution and the life of Rasulullah sallallahu while you were setting him when you feel that you are so sick, or there are other situations that you are in you will find an example in the life of the prophet send them if you feel that you are I owe you or your family is under attack, you will find it an example in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no matter what situation we find ourselves in Subhanallah

00:08:28--> 00:09:13

when you go into the life of Rasulullah salaam, you will find that the Prophet SAW Selim also faced similar situations and why would they not be you know people have asked why would Rasul Allah salaam be tested again and again and again? And why would he go through all these difficulties in life? Because brothers and sisters, there always has to be the example for all of us. If Allah subhanho wa taala, we understand and people have asked this question Rasulillah Salam is the most loved man bye, bye to Allah subhanho wa Taala Why would Allah put Rasulillah Salam, time after time, situation and difficult situation, one after another in the life of Rasulullah, Salah Salem is because there has

00:09:13--> 00:09:58

to be an example for for all of us. There has to be a merger for all of us, that we can always go back to and find hope and that is the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that is why Allah also says in the Quran, what kulana Pasquale come in and buy a roasted man with a b2b him for that? Why did Allah mentioned all these stories in the Quran, only to solidify our hearts, our hearts become weak. We're human beings, it's natural. But if we have something that can reinforce that Eman and reestablish that hope that may have been lost, that we will find that in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu it he was sending them. Another important thing that we also learned is we

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

learned the day

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

The proofs of prophethood. When you say the life of the prophets I send them when you ask people, What are the miracles of the prophets I send them you ask any child you ask even adults, what are the miracles of Rasulullah Sanam? Some will say the Quran some will say such and such, and they'll give you different stories, but the reality is that his entire life is a miracle. Subhanallah there are scholars that such as Imam Alba, who has written the law in Abuja, where they have shed light on the different aspects of Rasulullah Salam, and think about it for a moment as a leader, how can we tell the Rasul Allah Salam was a prophet? What is the proof that he was a prophet? First of all, is

00:10:39--> 00:11:22

when you study his entire life from beginning to end? Never would you see Rasulullah Salem contradict in his own statements, when you see leaders of today, they will always contradict in their statements. Rasulullah sunnah never would you see that His own and His Aman will contradict each other. Whatever he said, he lived by that and whatever he did, he always preached that this is why we find that this is why Rasul Allah Sutton was such an amazing figure, we also find an imam Albania please work. They feel that if you study all the, the predictions given by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we find one by one weather predictions at that time, weather

00:11:22--> 00:12:05

predictions about the future, the Fit does we find in our books of our Hadith, keytab will fit and all these features that are so assuming he's talking about one by one, we have either seen them, we have witnessed them, observe them, or we might, our upcoming generations may observe them. But the fact is that you cannot call this person a liar, if every single thing that he said is coming out to be true. So when you say the life of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, it was setting them we find these kinds of things that cannot, that really, really comes it really pushes us to one conclusion that there is no way that this man is a fraud, that this man is unreliable. But every single thing that comes from

00:12:05--> 00:12:48

us, Allah Salam is absolutely reliable. And the last thing that I will say, which is actually the last two things, number one another thing is that the reason why we say the life of the province is Salaam is to learn how to revive our own Hmong. Today, we find ourselves in a very difficult situation. In fact, if you go back, perhaps the 70s, the 80s and comparing our time to that time and 100, the OMA has recovered significantly. At that time, you will not find her father, you will not find her fall, you will not find massages. But Hamdulillah you know we there was there's been sort of a revival in the OMA in a certain capacity, we find so many orlimar nowadays, more often than

00:12:49--> 00:13:12

than at that time. And not only that, but so many who fall today. And so many massages and so many publications and so forth, and have to in certain degree, there's been a revival in the OMA. But if you want to study how to revive any community, any society or any OMA, you go back to the, to the life of Rasulullah Salem, because when Russell was Saddam was sent as a prophet, there was nothing.

00:13:13--> 00:13:55

There was nothing established in Mecca, the Prophet SAW had to start from ground zero, and he had to work his way up. So this is why if you want to study revival, and how to revive a community and so forth, we learned that from Rasulullah sallallahu, it was setting them. And the last thing that we have to do when it comes to the CETA of Rasulullah Salam is to reflect on the lessons and the morals and the reflections that we learn from us, Allah Salam, why is it that today, many of us we don't have any inclination to say the life of the prophet Salam is because for so many years, in Sunday school, when our kids are being taught CEDAW, it's always about names. It's always about numbers,

00:13:55--> 00:14:32

how many people participated in about a brother, how many people were in this battle and that battle, and which the hobby did this and which the hobby did that. And I'm not saying that they're not important, they are important. But at the same time, the key purpose of the CEDAW is to learn the reef into is to focus on the reflections and the lessons from the life of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi, wasallam And subhanAllah. Even when you say the love of the prophets, I'm deeply I don't mean like you know, in a casual way, but deeply when you study his life or the Prophet SAW Salem, you will learn that all the issues that you and I we face today, even issues that are not

00:14:32--> 00:14:59

even relevant to us that are going on in our society, you will find some some instruction or you will find something that the Prophet saw some he either said or did that can shed that can shed light on that matter. We need to focus on the reflections all the time when you say the life of the power center. Just don't focus on who did what and how many people but go into the lesson, the reflections. What can we learn from this story? That

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

It is why, because we have not focused on this area. This is why our kids today have no motivation of saying the life of the prophet Sallallahu. It was setting up. In fact, many adults don't have that motivation of learning about the life of the prophet of Salaam. Personally, it says Sierra, the prophets of Salaam, and I teach you to singers, I seniors mean high school seniors. But when I teach them, I don't focus on necessarily just numbers and names. I personally focus on the what do we learn from this particular story? And there's so many gems that we find in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those who love

00:15:38--> 00:15:56

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to make us are among those who will be close to the province I was setting them on the Day of Judgment. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who really learn and implement the life of the prophet Salam in their lives and mailable Allah mean does that come Allah Hi Salam aleykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh in
