Mr. Lohana Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah he Muhammad voila early he was rbh right I'm about. So in the last two weeks, we have been talking about the law you know, Naboo the proofs of Prophethood meaning that what are the proofs that we find that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is indeed the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. First of all, we all know that this is part of our RP that this is part of our deen that we believe that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, he was sent, and we do not worship of course the Prophet SAW along what he was saying but we follow him his lifestyle and the Quran that he was given by

00:04:52 --> 00:05:00

Allah subhanho wa Taala that today you and I we read is one of the most John mirror is one of the most comprehensive books come

00:05:00 --> 00:05:45

compared to all the other religious texts that are out there, in fact, when we read the Quran compared to all the other religious texts, first of all, the Quran teaches us as a human being, that how do we connect with Allah subhanho wa taala, our Creator, it teaches us how do we deal with others, it teaches us how to deal with inanimate objects. And it teaches us how to deal with things around us. Not only that, but this same, the same book of Allah. It addresses theology, it addresses personal character, it discusses interpersonal behavior, it discusses civil laws, it discusses foreign policies, it discusses ritual worship, and so on and so forth, and also discusses

00:05:45 --> 00:06:26

spirituality. So first of all, we should understand that this book of Allah subhanho wa Taala is our ultimate source. And is having said that there is a very important story I do want to share with you, that teaches us that will truly what the Quran is, say a lot of times when we talk about the Quran, we really we understand it from the point of view that Ramadan comes I should read a lot of the Quran. When there is a program, try to read Quran, when there is a halacha that takes place I read Quran that we will open the Quran and read and is it's about spirituality, it's about connecting with ALLAH SubhanA wa taala. But even long time ago go and study this the lies of the old

00:06:26 --> 00:06:30

man, whenever they would fall into a situation or a problem.

00:06:33 --> 00:07:10

They will always go back to the Quran. And just to give you an example, you know, Imam Shafi Rahmatullah Ali one time he was giving a dose of others on fic. And as you all know, that there are four there are areas of fic that there is no dispute about, in fact, there are others there are there are no dispute about by the time of the Prophet sallallahu ala he was setting them as we all know that everything would come back to two things, the Kitab of Allah and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, after the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there were many affairs, the Muslims do not have an idea or they were they they did not have a direction. So there

00:07:10 --> 00:07:53

was a new science that developed at that time, which is called the consensus, the GMR mean that if the people they come together and they decide upon a matter, then it becomes an edge amount. And then later on, there was another another methodology, which was called Ts, which has been a question at times. But nonetheless, this one time I'm Shafi talking with Allah, Allah was giving a lecture, and he talked about HTML, and there was a student and later on he became a student, but there was a scholar at that time, but the name of Imam Al Moosonee Rahmatullah Allah. He was sitting there and he asked him, I'm Shafi that where's this? Where's this HTML from? Do you have any delene Is is in

00:07:53 --> 00:08:37

the Quran? And Imam Shafi Rahmatullah la he says, that give me respite or give me respite for three days, let me think about it, let me dwell upon it. And and he says in almost any setting Yun Shafi that if you cannot find it within three days, then you should leave this affair mean that you should stop giving fatawa and you should stop giving this halacha and doodles and so forth. And Imam Shafi what is mentioned nothing about if you and I were in the position of Yom Shafi with Allah, we would go through every single site that is mentioned on Google and we will go through every single book and try to find something. Imam Shafi Rahmatullah Alayhi says that at that time I needed the help of

00:08:37 --> 00:09:17

Allah subhanho wa taala. And I did have them after hot them after hot them after hot them of the Quran. He connected with the Quran, and eventually Allah put in his heart that this is not a worry, don't get me wrong. This is just something Allah putting his heart and he came back to Imam Al Madani Rahmatullah LA and he says that there is an IRA in Surah Nisa, the highlights the importance of HMR and he recited to him Well, main your chakra go Rasulullah Malema to be in Allahu Houda well yet Tabea ye rasa be mean? This is talking about the the agreements of the believers. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says that there will be in the in the fire Johanna. There's a long explanation.

00:09:17 --> 00:09:55

But the point is that Imam Shafi when he needed help, he talked he read, he went back to the Quran. So we need to teach our children and we need to understand too, that every single time we have any issue, we have to go back to the Quran and we always read the Quran. And by reading the Quran and connecting with the Quran, sometimes Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will even open our hearts to make difficult things are very difficult in our life. Allah will make them easy in sha Allah, but nonetheless, we're talking about the light on the Buddha and today, last week we talked about some other things about the light on the boudoir today. I want to go into what are some of the key

00:09:55 --> 00:09:59

teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and these key

00:10:00 --> 00:10:41

teachings. As I've mentioned before that there are three primary methods of the problem teaching. One was Talim. One is public and one is Teskey. Tali means to teach the blue means to convey a message and to Ischia is to purify. So this is something that we find there probably some doing at all times. But the question is that what were some of his key messages and these key messages are very important. And not only that, but when we understand this, then we truly believe that Mohammed Salah sunnah is the Messenger of Allah, the very first thing is to hate, though he does something that first of all, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran, he tells Muhammad sallallahu alayhi

00:10:41 --> 00:11:22

wa sallam to address the people and tell them, we'll have he severely adoro it Allah, this is my way of life. This is my path. This is this is my purpose of life. What do I do I call people to Allah subhanho wa taala. And so what we learned from the seed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that like other religions, they will sometimes glorify a human being so much so that they put him at the position of Allah or they put them at the position of a divine entity, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never wanted anything like this. In fact, when people would come, and sometimes people would stand for him, he did not like that he was taught people who would just stand up when

00:11:22 --> 00:11:29

he when he would enter a room and people would stand up our respect. He said, Don't do not do these kinds of things, when people will, they will,

00:11:30 --> 00:12:11

they would imply, and they would have so much respect for him that sometimes they would elevate him into such a high status, he would stop and he would warn people about this. In fact, before he even passed away, he told the people that do not create a shrine do not create, you know, like a monument around my cupboard and so forth. Because this is the practices of the past. And this is how people they went astray. They took people they revere them, so much so that they they eventually they they went astray. So this is why we learned this from Rasulullah sallallahu, ala he was sending them that he never was worried about him. He was never worried about his status. He was never worried about

00:12:11 --> 00:12:52

his, his reputation in the sense that he never worried about that I want people to come and revere Me. But everything that he did was that he brought people not closer to himself, but he brought people closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. And in fact, when we look at our life, we as human beings, the way Allah has created us is that we do everything with a purpose. I wake up in the morning for a purpose, I go to sleep a night for a purpose, I go to work for a purpose, I eat for a purpose. So if everything in our life has a purpose to it, then we go back to the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we learned that Allah has taught us the what is the purpose

00:12:52 --> 00:13:31

behind everything. And even if you do anything, what should be your objective, and what should be your purpose and this is why we need the Quran once again. And this is why we have ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So the very first thing that person he taught was the importance of dough Haven coming close to Allah subhanho wa taala. And once again, every single day, this should be the goal of you and I that we come close to Allah. The second thing that Prophet SAW Allah while he was something he taught was predestination powder. Now Qadr is one of those kinds of things, that a lot of times we have difficulty understanding. And the truth of the matter is that yes, Allah subhanho wa Taala has

00:13:31 --> 00:14:08

written everything. And yes, it is true to that people have asked that, you know, there's a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, that dua has the ability to change further. So like, for example, there's a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he's sitting with a brunette ibis, and he says, about cuddling he says, roofie, I tell a column, what Jaffa to sort of depends have been uplifted, and the sheets have become dry mean that whatever other has been written by Allah, it is there. So the question that people many, many people have is, is that if do I can change other than how do you resonate between these two a hadith? And the answer that we give is or

00:14:08 --> 00:14:49

how we answer that question is that when Allah has written something in your cupboard is going to happen, but at the same time, if your DUA is going to change the other, then that is also written already in your other two years. And that's also written your other meaning that Allah has written, this is this was your initial powder, but because you may do ah, this is how your cutter has changed again, but nonetheless, whatever is in the cutter is going to happen. Now the question is this a lot of times, you and I, we have difficulty understanding other Why did Allah do this? Why did Allah do that? Why did Allah put me in this kind of situation? Today, the hookah that took place? It talks

00:14:49 --> 00:15:00

about exactly this. A lot of times you and I were going through challenges in life. So the question that we always ask is that Why did Allah put me in this kind of situation? So first of all, is that forget about I mean, there

00:15:00 --> 00:15:42

A lot of we know that as a Muslim we believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala we believe that it is from the from the Hikmah of Allah subhanho wa taala. But Subhanallah even today there are even non Muslim, non Muslim scholars and so forth. Even they are saying to that if you want to live a life of happiness, and a life of content, then the most important thing that you should do is that you should be content with what fate has been decreed for you. Meaning that if you and I, if we say that everything is from Allah subhanho wa taala. That means the good is from Allah, the baddest from Allah. And yes, no one said, you know, the problem is that a lot of times when bad things happen,

00:15:42 --> 00:16:26

we're like why, but what we need to realize is that this dunya is not a place of Jezza. This dunya is not a place where everything is going to be fair, there are going to be people who will do wrong and they will get away with it. This is going to happen a lot of times, but this is why you and I we recite every single day Maliki Yama Dean, what does Maliki on Monday mean? It means that eventually there will be a day of justice, there will be a day of, of equality, there will be a day where Allah subhanaw taala will hold every single criminal, every single sinner and every single wrongdoer accountable. But if you and I There are a lot of Muslims today that they're losing their Imani and

00:16:26 --> 00:17:09

other they're saying a wise Allah doing this and why is Allah doing that? If you don't believe in other and you say you are a Muslim, first of all, you are denying a maintenance of our deen but number two is that if you believe if anyone believes that it's not from Allah, but it's through the energy that is around us, then you're always going to be concerned and worry that who is doing what to me and what is happening to me and so forth. This is why it is important that we understand that not everything is going to be smooth in our life there and whether it's good or bad, everything is from Allah subhanho wa Taala This is mentioned in the Quran also where Allah says ma sabe musi but

00:17:09 --> 00:17:52

in fill Aldi wala fie unfussy calm in laffy Kitab in min cubberly, and number aha, this is an Akita This is from Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is the second thing that the Prophet saw him he taught was that we have to fully buy into and we have to fully have eemaan in Qatar, and the idea of Allah subhanho wa taala, whether good or whether or bad. The third thing that we learned from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is solid, we as Muslims living here in America, we have a very busy life. It's a constant roller coaster, every single day, there's something new coming up every single day, the best thing that we can do and will law he, if we truly praise the Lord, the way sloth is to

00:17:52 --> 00:18:35

be prayed, you know, we can escape our problems five times a day by engaging in our Salaat if a person prays the salon the way it should be prayed, then when a person will pray, you will be able to escape we will be able to escape all the troubles and all the the issues that are going on. And at times we even part of our nature and part of our health is that we need to at times disconnect from all of that. And the best way to do that is the salaat. And not only that, but we pray five times days a lot. And this is why it was so long it he was seldom, he will not just pray on these five time days a lot. But he would engage in slots at other times of the day. His sunnah his no wife

00:18:35 --> 00:19:15

and his piano, he should walk and all these other Salawat why? Because the problem he found comfort in that, And subhanAllah as Muslims, we do this five times a day, no matter what time it is, in fact, the late John Pope, the second he even said about the Muslims, that one of the things that he admires about the Muslims is that the Muslims, that no matter what time it is of the day, no matter what the circumstances are, when the time of prayer comes, you will find this nation on their knees and their forehead on the ground. And this is the nature of a believer and will lie if we take care of our salon. You know a lot of times we delay the salon till the very end if we take care of our

00:19:15 --> 00:19:18

salon, the way the salon should be taken care of.

00:19:20 --> 00:19:58

When it comes to our children, no one comes to tells us how to take care of our children. We take it upon ourselves, we make sure we are so cautious about the welfare of our children and our family. If we take care of our saw the same way we'll lovey we will find peace and contentment in our salon. If you and I we know what we're reciting in our salon, we will find peace and contentment in our salon. So this is the next thing that we find in the in the one of the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then not only that, but even from a scientific point of view. There are many Muslim scholars who have began writing that psychologically it's very healthy for you to engage in

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

your slog mentally is very bad.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:38

benefit beneficial, it is a stress reliever. But once again, we don't do this for this reason we do it because it is the word of Allah subhanho wa taala. And then not only that, but there are a hadith. Prayer is something that Subhanallah go into the books of a hadith there are a hadith about the importance of Salah there are a hadith about the timings of Salah there are a hadith about what brings us a lot, there are a hadith about how to finish your Salah. There are so many a hadith related to every single aspect of salad, that you will understand why salt is so important and why we should be so punctual about it. The fourth thing that we learned from the seed of the Prophet SAW

00:20:38 --> 00:21:26

Selim or the teachings of the Prophet alayhi salam is the importance of fasting, fasting in itself, brothers and sisters, is a way to connect to Allah subhanho wa taala. It helps us fight our desires, the things that you and I we want to do. Allah subhanho wa Taala He makes us stay away from those things. By keeping us away from the things that are necessities of life. Eating and drinking are necessities of life, by us staying away from the necessities of life. Allah wants to stay wants us to keep away from the wrong desires of our life. This is the objective of fasting. Fasting teaches us self restraint to fasting teaches us tequila fasting teaches us that how we should experience the

00:21:26 --> 00:22:07

discomfort and hunger like there are so many other people and this is why in the month of Ramadan, throughout the compared to the entire year, if there was one time when the Prophet saw him he would give the most amount of sadaqa. To the people who were needy and the poor. It was the month of Ramadan for this reason, because it's about us it's about sharing with others and what Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us and the next thing that Allah the Prophet SAW Allah who it was some he taught us now. Now leaving all the a bad part we get into some life things things about our life. The very first thing that the Prophet saw some he taught us is the importance of eating that which

00:22:07 --> 00:22:56

Allah has made halal, and staying away and not eating those things that Allah has made haram. It is a known fact whatever Allah has made Haram is because those animals in himself by eating them, there are diseases that can be contracted. There are diseases within those animals. Our Deen has made it prohibitive to eat any kind of carnivore animals. Why is that? There is a heckler behind that the way we sacrifice this is part of proper, this is part of eating and our lifestyles and so forth. Why do we sacrifice in this way, there is a reason that the animal and all the blood comes out from the animal, which makes the meat more clean and more pure compared to shooting the animal in many cases.

00:22:56 --> 00:23:35

On the other hand, whatever ALLAH SubhanA wherever the person has made halal, whatever Allah has made Allah, it is a benefit for us. There is benefit in it for all of us, whether we understand it or not. And not only that, but the importance of eating halal. The importance of staying away from haram staying away from haram income is also very important. So this is why we have been taught about this in the Quran. And not only that, but even when it comes to drinking water, for example, how should we drink? What should we drink? What should we not drink, and so forth. All of this has been mentioned in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And once again, the point is

00:23:35 --> 00:24:16

this. If this man, if this man homasote Ohio Salam, as some people claim that he was mentally insane, as some people mentioned, that he was an illiterate person, if he could not read And why'd, why, if he could not read nor write, why would you take your information from that person? But is there any other person who has taught these kinds of things, these are things that come directly from Allah subhanho wa taala. If this man was truly an imposter, than he will use these things for its own benefit. If he was truly a person who did not have mental stability, then how could he teach all these things that not only affects our spirituality, but affects our lifestyle? This is why this

00:24:16 --> 00:24:55

is all mentioned. And these are all proves that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the fact that he taught us He is truly the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the next thing that we learn, which is very, very important, which is a serious problem that we have in our communities, and especially you know, all over the world that we have this is the importance of staying away from Zina. This the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was in a society where Zina was rampid today the society that we live in SubhanAllah. Zina is rampid and we don't realize the teachings of Islam. First of all, Islam has taught us that even when it comes to men and women, there's a certain dress

00:24:55 --> 00:25:00

code that they should apply by. The other day I talked about modesty. Why is there an impact

00:25:00 --> 00:25:39

What is a modesty because when you apply modesty when men and women, they treat each other in the way that it has been seen or studied in the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when they interact in the proper way shown in the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And not only that, as Allah says Lata caribou Zina do not, do not even go close to Zina mean that anything that can lead you to Zina, you stay away from that this is then this is why then you will find a very healthy community. Today look at the society that we live in, where Zina is so rampid that's why you have all these diseases that are spreading in our community, there is spreading in the Muslim

00:25:39 --> 00:26:20

community. And then not only that, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he has taught us the harms of this. We see the harms today in our society. Today. There are so many children today that they will have no father, sometimes they don't have a mother. Sometimes these children are and because that they're not growing up in a healthy and a healthy environment. They are diseases and so forth. This is why it destroys families. Zina is that thing that destroys families, how many families how many divorces how much infidelity that takes place? Within Wallahi. I tell you honestly, forget about the normal some community today, the infidelity, the Zina that is taking

00:26:20 --> 00:27:01

place within our own Muslim community is increasing. I'm not lying to you when I say this, it is absolutely increasing time to time. You know, one is Zina. One is infidelity. infidelity is also growing within our community. SubhanAllah. And this is destroying families. This is destroying children. And when you destroy a child, and you just take away a family from a child, this is why then you have all these this is why you have children who are then engaged in drugs. I'm not saying that this is the only way for them to engage in drugs. But then this is how they sleep slowly and gradually, they slip away. Look at those people today who are so old today, that they have no

00:27:01 --> 00:27:42

children around them. Why? Because if you go back into their life is very possible. I'm not saying for guarantee. But it's very possible that they never had children, because they were always coming in Zina. They never worried about having a family. And today they have gotten to this age where today they have no one around them. So this is why it is very, very important that these kinds of illicit kind of behaviors that have overtaken our society, we have to be very careful about this. And this is why it was so awesome. He emphasized upon even if there's a man and woman in a place, the etiquettes of Hello others certain etiquettes of Halawa. If a man and woman need to interact

00:27:42 --> 00:28:24

with each other, to strangers need to interact with each other, there is a dab how to interact with each other. So if we can keep these things in mind, and not only that, but we think about our families, that inshallah we'll be able to protect our society to. The next thing that the province of some he taught us to was the importance of staying away from usury and interest, forget, I mean, this is not just only Islam, but go back to the history of the Kaaba, the Kaaba in itself. The Kaaba in itself, was not the way that we see today. The happening that you see around the Kaaba, or on the right side of the door of the Kaaba, that was actually part of the Kaaba, when they were rebuilding

00:28:24 --> 00:29:05

the Kaaba in the time of the Prophet saw something, there was a flood that came, these people, they ran short of funds, they had a choice, they can either get more money, but they knew that if they get the money, they will be from usually and it will be from interest, they chose, they will not Muslims, but they chose not to use the money that came from interests, sources, and they built the GABA the way it is today. And they built that how theme, that semi circle to show that this is the this was initially the extent of the Kaaba. So if these are people who do not even believe in Allah, they do not even know who Allah is, and they chose to stay away from user interest, then how much do

00:29:05 --> 00:29:48

you think as a Muslim? When Allah subhanho wa Taala said, that it will be hard on me, Allah who are solely that I declare war against that person who uses or who engaged in usury interest, then what do you think about us and how much we should stay away from it? The reason why Islam made it forbidden, is because if you study a system, when you study a system that has interest, it is one that's benefiting and the other one that that becomes more and more poor, the rich keep on getting richer, and the poor, keep on getting poor. And this is why when the Prophet SAW sent him he came to Medina, he saw that system in that market in Medina that exists till today he saw this practice

00:29:48 --> 00:30:00

going on and he forbade that Jabba bin Abdullah Yola, Don he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he cursed, he sent liner and the curse of a

00:30:00 --> 00:30:42

Law upon the consumer of interest, the person who pays the interest, the person who documents the interest, the person who witnesses the interest, and he says they all are equal in sin, they all are equal in sin. And this is why so it's very important that if we are engaged in any capacity like this, it is very important that we stay away from these kinds of things. And then not only that, as I was saying earlier, we don't realize when a person engages in interest, Allah takes a Baraka away from your wealth, you may believe your bank balance may say that you may have more money, but you do not have more money, you have less money, because Allah has taken the baraka out of your wealth, and

00:30:42 --> 00:31:18

out of our wealth. So this is why it is so important that we maintain this today Subhanallah look at all these financial institutions, they are ripping people off, they are they are making profit after profit, and who is suffering, these people who want to get rich, they keep on getting richer, and the ones who are getting poor, they keep on getting poor. So bahala we live, you know, there was a youngster who told me that he used to work long time ago that he quit his job eventually, because what he was, he was working for a credit card company. But then later on when he realized he was doing something wrong, so then he quit his job. But he was telling me that we live in a society that

00:31:18 --> 00:31:57

people are paying credit card bills for one or two years ago. And trust after interest, it puts so much pressure on you. And not only that, but when it comes to our money, the Prophet saw some has taught us how to spend our money too. He has taught us law 234 Do not become extravagant. When it comes to spending money, then spend money when you need to spend money on your family, do not become so stingy and greedy at that time. But always have a moderate pace when it comes to spending money, spend money where you need to spend money and stay away where it is Slav. So this is why it's very important. And subhanAllah, you have no idea time to time people are coming into my office, that,

00:31:57 --> 00:32:33

you know people in our family there keep on maxing out credit cards, and they keep on getting into interest. And we are so tight on money all there. They're making so much money. I mean, these are families making 150 160 yet they don't have enough money to go and buy groceries from Walmart. Why? Because when you keep on maxing out your credit cards, and there's you keep on you know, incurring interest on your credit cards. And it doesn't matter how much you pay and how much money you're making. At the end of the day, Allah takes away the baraka of your wealth. So this is why it is so important. And this is what we learned from Missoula, Salah Salem, how to maintain our finances. And

00:32:33 --> 00:33:13

then not only that, but this is why Subhanallah even now people who are studying finances, people who study finances, now they are struggling, they are now starting to study Islamic finance. And now they are also realizing that the Islamic economic system, the Islamic financial system that was implemented at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and that was implemented by the qualified Rashi don't. And how did they flourish? There was no interest at that time. There was no interest in their system, but how much do they flourish now, financial experts of finances, they're now starting to realize that this is somebody's finances, the finance system, it actually works for such a long

00:33:13 --> 00:33:52

time didn't even care about it. Humphrey, you know, when we when brothers here, when we first came to America, or I was born here when you came to America, but the point is, there was no such there was only these Islamic finance banks. But now today we find these kinds of financial institutions. Why? Because people are starting to realize the benefit of these kinds of these kinds of entities. So that's why it's very important, especially when it comes to our money. We always are very, very careful about it. The The next thing that we learned that the person he taught us about is the whole dude. Now when we talk about her dude, first of all is that there are some certain punishments that

00:33:52 --> 00:34:35

we find in our deen there is a punishment of Zina, there is a punishment of drinking there is a punishment of when a person falsely accuses their husband or their wife of Zina and so forth. They are when when there's theft, there is a there is a penal code there is a there is a there are Hadith that are put in place. And by the way, there is very less there is not so much in the Quran mentioned about the Hadith. And the Islamophobes they say the die is the only thing that you find in the Quran. There is also a a height for when a person takes the life of another innocent person. So these are some of the Hadith are mentioned the Quran but they are you know, very less than the Quran

00:34:35 --> 00:34:59

they probably make up only just probably like one or 2% of the Quran. That's all it is. But nonetheless, the most important thing that we learned from the Islamic system of the hadith is that we look today in America to there are people who commit crimes and see the point of a HUD, the point of a penalty, or a or the the penal code, I will say is that it should rectify the problems in our state.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:40

Is it long time ago See look long time ago, if a person committed Zina, it can spread in the community. This is why there was a height when people used to go out and drink. There was a HUD for that. When so when things when there are some certain wrongdoings that can affect the society at large, there was a penal code for that there was a HUD for that. But at the same time, the reason why Islam said there has to be a HUD is because when people see the HUD been carried out, and it may seem little severe, but when the HUD is taking place, it stops everyone else from committing a similar rung. Now today, when we look at the system that we live here in America, you look at the

00:35:40 --> 00:36:20

penal code, it is an absolute Sham, it is an absolute, I mean, it is so flawed, if you look at it, the America, the the the system that we live in today, where people have to go, and they're going into jails and so forth. I mean, you look at this, and this is such a I mean, it's a catastrophe. People are when they are, first of all, when they are indicted, or when they have been declared as a criminal, and they have to go and serve time in jail. What is the jail doing? What are the prison systems doing to actually our people, most of the times are coming out even worse than they went inside? They're coming out, they're coming out, they're again, coming into crime, and again, they're

00:36:20 --> 00:36:59

lending back in what's the point of that kind of system when it does not really affect the person who committed the crime? What kind of message does that send to the rest of the community. So this is why Islam the HUD system that was put in place by Islam, there was a reason for that there was a Hikmah behind that, of course, in America, we cannot apply that. But it is important that we understand that there was a heckler behind that there was a lot of benefit of behind that whether we understand it or not. But this is why the person he taught because at that time, people would commit crimes, and they would get away with it. The problem he wanted teach everyone that if one person

00:36:59 --> 00:37:35

committed a crime, even if one person committed a crime, the justice or the Penal Code, when it is established upon that person, it sends a very strong message to everyone else, in my saying that crimes do not come in and tie the power some crimes do would come in, even in the own community of the province. And there are people who would commit Zina. It was not like the person's community was, you know, speaking span, it was absolutely perfect. There are people who commit crimes of that time to but when people would commit crimes where there was a HUD associated with it, and the HUD will be carried out, it was sent a very strong message to everyone else, because that is the

00:37:35 --> 00:38:16

objective of a punishment. When think about a teacher, when a teacher applies a punishment upon a student, it sends a very strong message across to all the students. When a parent punishes their own child, it sends a very strong message to all the other children when the system is such that people are being put into the system so that they can get fixed, but rather than being fixed, they're coming out more corrupt. And there are so many millions of people sitting in jails right now. And there's nothing being done about them that what kind of system is that? What kind of system is that? So this is why this is one of the things that also the problem he taught us about the one of the

00:38:16 --> 00:38:54

most beautiful things about our deen is that there is a HUD system too. But of course in our situation, we cannot we there is no implementation of it. But this is something that we learn also from the province of Salem. The last thing inshallah that I'm going to cover is actually two more things. The next thing is personal hygiene. I'm going to quickly go through this, there are a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that talks about that there are 10 practices from the fitrah there are 10 practices of the fitrah one is trimming the moustache, letting the beard grow, brushing the teeth, rinsing the nose, clipping the nails, washing the finger joints, plugging the

00:38:55 --> 00:39:38

the armpit hair, shaving the pubic hair and washing oneself with water after using the restroom. These are things that we find in the Hadith Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam, each of these things, each of these things they all have to do with personal hygiene. Our you know Subhanallah one of the most beautiful things about our deen is that it teaches us the Hara. It teaches how to be clean. The fact that you and I we praise the Lord five times a day and we make will do five times a day in itself. It is a cleansing ritual, there are non Muslim professors of you know of cleanliness and hygiene, even they say even they say that the Muslims the system that they have is a very clean system. Go

00:39:38 --> 00:40:00

you know, when the Crusades when they went when they went to these, these lands and so forth. What they saw was that there were places where Muslims will take a bath for different everything's on Friday, they will take a shower every time a man is with his spouse after they will take a shower. There were times so many times they were cleaning their body and so forth. They were impressed

00:40:00 --> 00:40:38

spiders and this is why even till today, there are many places where even like, there are many places that have like these, these bath houses, it's I believe in Turkey and some other places, they have these kinds of bath houses. But the point is that the Polish some, he taught us the importance of cleanliness and Subhanallah I have seen with my own eyes, when we see the people around us that when they don't have a system of cleanliness, they're always dirty. Subhanallah you know, I've been to I don't want to take the name of countries because I don't want to offend anyone. But I've been to places where Subhanallah people are so dirty. They have no concept of cleanliness. I've been to

00:40:38 --> 00:41:19

countries where on trains, you know, it's so dirty people are sitting next to the trains on the floor, no concept of no concept of cleanliness, no concept of the Hara. This is one of the most beautiful things about our deen. This is why the possum he even talked about that if you eat onions or raw garlic, do not go to the masjid because of this all comes under personal hygiene when it when we talk about the when the policy talks about the urine that making sure that when you sit when you go to the restroom, sit down and urinate why, because first of all, this is healthy for the body number one, but number two is that your clothes are able to protect yourself from urine splashes on

00:41:19 --> 00:41:58

your clothes, making sure that you go to the restroom, take your time. All of these are hobby that we studied from the seat of the province of Salem, and his teachings are about the importance of cleanliness and Tahara. And then not only that, but even the fact that even in will do the water that we put on our noses. There are doctors who are saying today that there is something called nasal irrigation which is very important that the more water we put in our nose, the more we clean our nose, the more the system remains clean, which will be healthier for us. So in this day and age Subhanallah when all these people are coming now that do this, this is better for your cleanliness,

00:41:58 --> 00:42:42

hand sanitizers, this and this not all these things are taking place. We were taught these things 1400 years ago, we were taught these things 1400 1400 years ago. Personal hygiene is something that the Prophet SAW Selim, he taught us and the importance of importance of being clean. The last thing that we see, or we learn from the seed or from from the teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is the importance of seeking knowledge, the importance of seeking knowledge. Allah subhanho wa Taala in the very first revelation center the prophets, prophets Allah, Allah says, if Allah, Allah and Allah column, these are three words that were used, read, teach, and the use of the pen. In this day and

00:42:42 --> 00:43:16

age, whether it's typing, the point is documenting knowledge. Allah subhana wa Taala talked about that, the importance of studying the importance of acquiring knowledge, Allah says in the Quran, the one who has knowledge, the one who does not have knowledge, they cannot be equal. There are many, a Hadith of the Prophet Psalm that talks about the importance of seeking knowledge. And not only that, after the death of the Prophet SAW Salem, do you think the Muslims just stopped over there? No, the Muslims moved on. In fact, there's a hadith Did you know that there's a hadith in Timothy, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he even says,

00:43:17 --> 00:43:56

that he who practices because later on if you go and study Islamic history, if people like Edna Siena, there were, I mean, these were people who were doctors, they were medical doctors, they were physicians, and they will books on the anatomy and physiology on human anatomy and physiology. There were books after books, and for such a long time, you know, in the Western doctors, they benefited from the doctor from the books of ignorance, Siena, and so forth. But the Prophet sallallahu it was some he didn't mention there's a hadith and Timothy, were in he says, I believe it's a Buddha, Buddha would have been a manager, rather, the Prophet alayhi salam, he says, He who practices

00:43:56 --> 00:44:36

medicine, without being known for proficiency in Amina, if you don't have proficiency in it, and you're studying and you're in your practicing medicine, then you should be liable, that person is going to be liable. Now Subhanallah, this is a lesson for all of us. If you are not proficient a certain area, but you're teaching it, then you are going to be liable. And not only that, but this hadith was then later adopted, and it was practiced by the Muslim physician at that time that any Muslim doctor that will come forward if they were not, if they were not proficient in their education, then they will be held liable. So like this slowly and gradually in every single science

00:44:36 --> 00:44:59

and every single area, Muslims were very, very knowledgeable astronomy, Muslims were very, were we're experts when it came to medicine. There were Muslims who were experts when it came to science, psychology, sociology, all these other areas of sciences that we find business and so forth. Muslims excelled in every single area. Why? Because they learned that from the Sahaba

00:45:00 --> 00:45:37

who eventually learned that from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then not only that, but there were many scholars later on who even mentioned that how much the person he taught about medicine and so forth. In fact, even right now till today, we study about quarantine, if there's a place that is under quarantine, a person inside the building cannot leave the building, a person outside the building, cannot come inside the building. This was a teaching of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. When he opened him to hot Bob came to a city, and he found out there was a plague and the city city has been shut off, he did not enter it. And then not only that, but the people

00:45:37 --> 00:46:12

inside we're not allowed to come out of it. So this is something that even we learn from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, there's not something that we learned only right now. But these are the teachings of Rasulullah saw some, so he taught us even science, he taught us medicine, and so forth. And so these are the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and once again, so we learned that all these things that have been taught to us by Rasulullah, saw salaam, if this man was an illiterate man, then this man cannot teach us all these things of life. He taught us once again, I want to quickly go through them. And I want you to remember them if you can. The very was the very

00:46:12 --> 00:46:14

first one, though hate the second one was

00:46:16 --> 00:46:21

either of Allah subhanho wa Taala the third one was solid, the fourth one was

00:46:22 --> 00:46:24

fasting. The fifth one was

00:46:27 --> 00:46:37

pure eating or healthy eating is worth making sure that whatever we're consuming, it is halal staying away from that, which is a haram, the sixth one was

00:46:40 --> 00:46:54

staying away from Zeno, anything that can anything that falls into that same category, staying away, staying away from those kinds of things. Number seven, usury or interest. Okay, riba staying away from those kinds of things number eight.

00:46:58 --> 00:46:58

Uh huh.

00:47:00 --> 00:47:03

No, that was the that was the last one. Number eight was

00:47:05 --> 00:47:17

not the Hara. That's, that's number nine. Personal hygiene is number nine. Number eight, the province Um, tell us about the penal code, the Islamic Oh, dude system? Why is it so effective? That's what the problem taught us.

00:47:19 --> 00:48:03

The summer huddled system, how do IT system. And then number nine was personal hygiene. Number 10, was the importance of seeking knowledge. All of these things was taught to us by Rasulullah, Salem. And if you look at everything that we do, pretty much they fall into one of these kinds of categories. So this is why once again, all this falls under the lighter number one, all this falls under proofs that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was truly a messenger of Allah. A man cannot, you know Subhanallah each one of us we excel in some area. And there are areas where we're not proficient at the Prophet saw some for the fact that the powers Salam has taught us about everything

00:48:03 --> 00:48:49

of life. He has taught us all these areas of life is a sign that he was a man who was given this by Allah subhanho wa taala. And this man has to be truly the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, otherwise, there's no other men who can teach all this, if this was a man, who was not inspired by Allah, there is no way he can teach all these kinds of things. There's no other person, we find that history has taught us all these areas of life, and how long not the person who died at the age of 63 But how, and he told us all these things within a span of 23 years. Within a span of 23 years, there is no person who can teach that much. In 23 years, unless they are inspired by Allah

00:48:49 --> 00:49:22

subhanho wa Taala unless they are the Prophet of Allah, so Allah Salam, so ask Allah subhanho wa taala, to have to have appreciation for these kinds of things. Ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us the understanding of the Hikmah of Islam, the Hikmah of our deen and so on. Next we will talk about the more desires and they bless the miracles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I was supposed to talk about that today, but today we took this inshallah with and this all comes under one thing, the message this was the message of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, ask ALLAH SubhanA wa that to give us a bit to Africa has been sent and heard, does that Camilla Hadith

00:49:22 --> 00:49:29

Subhana, Allah homophonic there's the word Allah into the stuff we're going to relate does that Kamala Harris, somebody comparable to Katherine
