Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Bismillah men are human hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah him Hamid while he was so happy he married my bad. One of the most beautiful things that we learn about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was that when it came to join activities when it came to matters where you have many people involved, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the one who would always take upon himself the most and the most amount of sacrifices. The Prophet sallallahu sallam was an amazing leader and part of being a leader is that you should always care about the safety of your people always put your people before your own self.

00:01:02--> 00:01:43

That is what makes a leader a very exceptional leader. When we say about the CETA of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we learn, for example, when the first Hijra that took place to Habesha to Abyssinia, in that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sent approximately 18 people and so forth. He never went himself. Now think about this. The Muslims are being persecuted in Macau. The Prophet SAW Selim, he could have easily told the Sahaba that you know what, I'm gonna go there. I'm gonna go to makup I'm gonna go to Abyssinia and you all stay here in Mecca, and take care of yourself and so forth. Today Subhanallah we live in a world where leaders world leaders today, they

00:01:43--> 00:02:26

don't go and fight battles themselves. They send other people into battles. They don't do they always want to do the easy work and then when they want to make other people do the more difficult work Rasulullah sallallahu it was sent him was the complete opposite. He will always take upon himself more than he will put on his own Sahaba Viola I know. Hence, in the story of Abyssinia too, we find that he sent the Sahaba he sent some Sahaba there and he himself stayed in the place where difficulties did exist. He stayed in Makkah himself and he endured those difficulties. Even during the second Hijra to Habesha to Abbey Sr, there was over 100 people that went even in that there were

00:02:26--> 00:03:06

not once there also are some say that I will go and you all stay here. And the problem is some he let them go to every senior and stay in Abyssinia for approximately 14 years. And he himself stayed in Makkah, this is who Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was, when we find when we hear the stories about the Battle of trenches, the Sahaba or Villalta, on whom I have been there, there's a place where if you there's a place where I was shown one time that this is one of the places upon a mountain near the area where the battle of trenches took place where the Promise of Allah while your son, he made one of the longest superfoods in his life, and they're the Sahaba Rodon who are looking for to

00:03:06--> 00:03:46

swallow the Sanlam frantically thinking that where the person go and they find that he is making sujood. So the person will always do extra. There is a story and this is why I'm sharing the story is because we're talking about the smiles and the tears of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Ali Vitali, Bravia Allahu taala, and who he mentioned that on the night before the Battle of butter took place, you have to understand that this is the very first battle that is taking place in the you know, in the cause of Islam, the very first battle taking place in the history of Islam. And here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what he's doing is that he's telling the Sahaba you go

00:03:46--> 00:04:25

to sleep, but early on with all him says that while everyone was asleep, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was standing and he was crying. He was crying the entire night, asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for help asking ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala for nostra asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for victory. And think about this. This is who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, everyone was asleep, but he himself was standing up and he's praying to Allah and His crime for Allah subhanho wa taala. So brothers and sisters, think about this, when it comes to Islamic matters. When it comes to Islamic activities when it comes to so many projects. Many times we see that we always

00:04:25--> 00:05:00

want to wait we always want the easy way out. I want to take upon myself the least amount of responsibilities, the least amount of challenges, if there's any challenging aspect of what they're doing of the project and so forth. Usually we want to defer it to someone else. But what we learned from Rasulullah sallallahu. I have some he is our role model. He is the one that we follow. He is the one that we look up to. He's the one that we emulate, and what we learn from him is that he will always exert himself to the highest level and he will do take

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

upon himself more than he will put upon other people. So always when it comes to these kind of matters, always push yourself more. Do not do not leave it to others. Always try to excel always try to move forward. And remember the more you try to do for Allah sake for Allah sake, you may succeed you may even fail, but Allah subhanho wa Taala he looks at the effort, I ask Allah subhana wa Tada to make all of us like our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah give all of us the ability to move forward to do more and more and may Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us amongst those who stay in the back and who don't do too much May Allah subhana wa Tada make us from the best
