the cushion with Arjun Bharara, we're colluding rather than for now. I'm not gonna

00:02:51 --> 00:03:42

respect your brothers and sisters. All praises is for Allah subhanho wa Taala who is the Nourisher the Cherisher he's the one who controls every single thing. He's the master of all the universe and made his peace and blessings be upon His Rasul and His Prophet, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were going through a time in the year according to our lunar calendar that each one of us every single day, we should be making this drive to Allah subhanho wa Taala along about Nicoletta V. Rajan was Chabad. verbunden Ramadan, Ramadan is not far away. Ramadan is right around the corner is right upon us. But again, we have heard about certain deaths in the community, how

00:03:42 --> 00:04:29

people were so unexpected of death, and how death came about. All of a sudden, we heard about a girl who grew who passed away right after her after her graduation. We heard about a younger sister in our own community. 14 years old, she passed away 10 Guess what, there are many other debts that we make, you may hear about, we may even come across right before the month of Milan. We don't know if we're gonna last for the month of Ramadan. That's why I insist that we continue to say a lot about things and have you lunch with Siobhan over Ramadan. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us another month of Ramadan and may Allah subhanaw taala make this Ramadan, the best amount that we have ever

00:04:29 --> 00:04:32

spent in our entire life. Have you ever been

00:04:33 --> 00:04:59

receptive brothers and sisters? Today in my football I was given us a lot of thought that what do I want to talk about? And there was one key characteristic of the province that a lot of it was summed up that I would like to shed some light upon today and I will talk about this topic and then later on I will tie this into the month of Ramadan because we need to be informed. We need to be told about Ramadan and we need to be mentally prepared about Ramadan.

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

If you don't want to president's about to go through surgery, he he or she is mentally prepared from before they go to the doctor two or three times they go for some checkups. They're already in the zone. And they're in that they're in that zone that I have to go through a surgery, then when the time of surgery comes around, it is not a complete shock to them. We need to continue talking about Milan, we need to hear more about Milan so that when Ramadan comes we are fully prepared. When we analyze, when we study the life of this person, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, most of us we can you know, we give different words, if someone were to tell us that give me one word. One word that can

00:05:47 --> 00:05:57

summarize the entire life of the prophet said a lot while he was setting up, each one of us will have our own words, we have a written word, please come forward, please come forward.

00:06:03 --> 00:06:49

We will have our own words to define, you know for the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And there is no one word. Why? Because the life and the legacy that was left behind by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is so complex. And it's so amazing that you just cannot use one word to summarize his entire life. You need many words to summarize, the life and the legacy left behind by Thomas Allamani was some. But today I want to talk about only one of them. And that is tolerance. You know, when you study the subject of tolerance, and how we're supposed to be tolerating the tolerant towards others, we always find this word tolerance, related and associated

00:06:49 --> 00:07:33

with the subject of being tolerant towards other faiths and other religions. Like if you go to Google right now and say Islam, the religion of tolerance, it will have the first few options always going to be about how Islam is tolerant towards other religions. And how the Quran talks about tolerance towards other religions. But when we studied the life of the prophet Sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, we learned that he was a man who exemplified the highest level of tolerance towards everyone in the community, the level of tolerance and also a lot of it was Salam is such that it cannot be it cannot be matched, it cannot be met. No one can have the tolerance of Rasulullah

00:07:33 --> 00:08:22

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, from beginning to end, his entire life was all about tolerance. While he was in Makkah, there was tolerance, when he will pray the Salah, will you agree the salad and people would come to him and they would encourage him why he was putting the salad that is tolerant, when his family had to go through what they had to go through. That is tolerance when he had to send his people, approximately 100 people from Africa, and he was left with hardly anyone in Africa during the second migration to Abyssinia into hotshot that was tolerance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. In Medina, there was tolerance in the in the expedition who Davia in a treaty of

00:08:22 --> 00:09:12

today via study the study the history of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you will learn that there was one man who came on behalf of the college, to the promise that Allah or I will send them to negotiate terms to make an agreement. It was absolutely easy and possible that the Prophet saw some easily defeated him. Allah subhanho wa Taala says himself that if you went inside Makkah, you would have been victorious. You would have been easy victorious, because you had the help of a ra on your site. But that is not what happened. This man comes to him and he comes he's negotiating terms. And these terms are all one sided terms. Although the alone time he comes to overcome at the

00:09:13 --> 00:09:51

end, he says, are we not on the right path? Yoruba? He says, Yes, we are. He goes, don't we are, aren't we the followers of the most correct religion? He goes, Yes, we are. He goes, Don't we have the best of the best amongst us? referring to Muhammad Salah Salem, he says, Yes, he was and why are we negotiating on their terms? Once again, it was a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and his level of tolerance that kept everything going, how he was tolerant towards in this situation, the gods that the person who was writing on behalf of the prophet Isaiah Salah was only when

00:09:52 --> 00:09:59

he writes, Muhammad Rasool Allah agrees to such and such. So Abraham says, No, we don't even agree

00:10:00 --> 00:10:44

that he is Rasul Allah. So you have to write Muhammad ibn Abdullah. He writes Mr. Mica, Allah Houma. He says, No, we wouldn't even admit to that either. Every single thing that prophet was going to put on that document. They said no, NO and NO, the man who's negotiating on behalf of the Quraysh, his son of a gender reveal, because he is pleading to the Prophet. Oh, yes. And Allah, please do not give me back into the hands of the Quraysh because you have no idea what they will do to me. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he pleaded to so ahead of the hour, he says, please, for the sake of Allah, just let your son go. He's your son at the end of the day. He says, No, he goes, he

00:10:44 --> 00:11:07

is he is he has denounced the religion of our forefathers. I'm not going to let him go. He took his own son back for the purpose of torturing him. Can you imagine a father doing this? He took him back the Sahaba would cry. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam seemed as he's crying, but he was tolerated at that situation.

00:11:09 --> 00:11:10

In the battle,

00:11:12 --> 00:11:36

the battle guards promised to log on at USM. For those of you who have been to the venue or the area where it could take place, you know exactly where you're at. You know exactly what I'm talking about. When I say this, that where the public saw Lausanne was camped out. There the mountain was behind him so that no one could attack upon our law while he was

00:11:37 --> 00:11:40

he camped. He saw a small hill.

00:11:41 --> 00:12:29

He posted 50 Archers over there. I want you to keep an eye out. Make sure no one comes around. No one comes around to attack us. What happened to the 50 Archers, they did not fulfill the responsibility the way they were supposed to. What happened at that time Khalid bin Woody was also yet he found the golden opportunity to come and attack themselves. He came around what happened because of those 50 people not fulfilling their responsibility and fulfilling the task at hand. What happened was that the Muslims suffered heavy casualties. The Muslims suffered heavy casualties. At that time, the purpose of the law while he was on he was also injured. It was a same battle where he

00:12:29 --> 00:12:34

where he lost his beloved uncle Hunter a little longer in that same guy.

00:12:35 --> 00:12:51

Now after all this imagine the emotional feelings and the emotions the promise of life on his own, he is going through, think about it. He is upset that I gave them one responsibility and yet they did not fulfill that.

00:12:52 --> 00:13:44

According to many orders. After this incident, Allah subhanaw taala revealed a verse instead of adding Imran Furby Mohammed in Milan in interlocking what a wonderful one word evil unburied and from whom and howling. There in the beak. We have some mercy in your heart for these people. These are your Sahaba they slipped up. Yes, they didn't miss a few. But be kind and tender hearted towards them. When opened the football Albena compliment. If you are harsh hearted towards them, no one's gonna come close to you again. Then he says tough one and forgive them. And this word in the Quran or in the Arabic language is signifies and implies a certain type of forgiveness that when you

00:13:44 --> 00:14:25

forgive someone, you completely erase it from your system. You don't nowadays we forgive each other. But we will still continue to remember the incident day time plays worried happen. We always remember that. And yeah, we say whether I forgive for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala you know, I know you did this something such and such date is such a such time we were such in such in such a such place. That is not our food. Our food is you forgive and you forget, Allah is telling the power cell center Firefly completely erased from your system as if this never happened. Forgive them in such a way. What's the Finland? seek forgiveness for them? What shall we do?

00:14:26 --> 00:14:59

And even after this, you continue to consult with them. When you get upset with someone sometimes you feel like I don't want to consult with that person anymore. Allah is telling about the setup. No you continue to consult with them. What is this is teaching the Prophet saw Santa tolerance. Be tolerant towards your Sahaba when your Sahaba make a mistake, be tolerant towards that when your family makes a mistake. There was a time that I was a boxer salaam when he was upset with his wives, be tolerant to your wives when it comes to the munaf you name it

00:15:00 --> 00:15:48

Imagine how much the marketing cause the cause pain to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and how much tolerated he was. Imagine. Can you just imagine one of the biggest enemies of Islam, the leader of the hypocrites. When he passes away, his son comes to him and he says, Yasukawa My father has passed away their problems our son, he gets up, he takes off his shirt. He says, You know what to put this on your father, look at the level of tolerance of loss of a loved one he was sent today in a world where Islamophobia is spreading like wildfire. Way southern phobia is spreading everywhere. People are hating Muslims. We are telling people that we are tolerant towards others,

00:15:48 --> 00:16:02

but respected brothers sisters, the reality is that we may be tolerant towards other faiths and we may be tolerant towards others, but we within ourselves, we are very, very intolerant.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:07

We are very intolerant. Something goes up and down.

00:16:09 --> 00:16:18

We started having a yelling match. We want to use profanity. We want to use wrong language. Where is the tolerance that we learn from the super loss of a loved one to use

00:16:20 --> 00:16:58

the old age attack the same level of your world and are on your way out of Matka she was pregnant at that time. It said that the wounds sustained because of this attack. She died within those weeks. Not a single time to the pump saw Selim he made dua against them, tolerance or is our tolerance. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the tolerance of Missoula sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and may Allah convert our intolerance to tolerance in sha Allah not alone and not what happened. When I found out well, you would think that Hakeem I stopped Fulani welcome when you say it must be the first coffee

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

Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah I

00:17:10 --> 00:17:11

want to start fiddling

00:17:14 --> 00:17:17

with it but I had yella wants to learn

00:17:18 --> 00:17:29

and he wants to know how many that are suited for the fall a lot of Africa with high level languages were upon hummingbird damage apology, this will learn what malware him in Allah.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:43

Allah and me yeah, you already know already he was selling the schema, along with some yALa 100 Water Ali Mohammed commands commercial Anita Lo Ibrahim while earlier why human to come in and Majid or barik ala Muhammad wala Ali Muhammad

00:17:45 --> 00:18:13

Ali Ibrahim are limited in the community. Majid Ahmad you must be wondering, the Ramadan is on this right around the corner. Why is it you know, I'm talking about tolerance. Ramadan is all about developing tolerance. Think about it from the beginning of the day till sunset, we are told to refrain from food from drinking anything and to stay away from any kind of any kind of spousal relationships.

00:18:14 --> 00:19:00

Keeping all this in mind. We are tolerant towards those things because Allah tells him a Quran but at the end as the day develops, and as the day goes on, yet we still become grumpy over time. You know the thing in English and hunger a hungry man is an angry man. As a day develops we get more angrier, our level of tolerance begins to start dipping. But the reason I mentioned about tolerance is that tolerance is not going to be observed when it comes to fasting. Tolerance needs to be observed even within our own community. Ramadan is coming Ramadan is right that you know Ramadan is coming. We have so many people who come to our budget on a daily basis. We have people who come to a

00:19:00 --> 00:19:12

budget here and there. And in Ramadan, especially you're gonna have you're gonna see a lot of people who never come to the masjid at all. And that is the only time the year they come to the masjid.

00:19:13 --> 00:19:16

I take you back to the back of the episode a lot of it was

00:19:17 --> 00:19:57

the story that we have all heard. A man came inside the masjid and he went into the corner and he urinated. Now I asked you and I want you to really think about this. Do you think Amen? Who has been always around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He has always been around the Sahaba of Yolanda the One who would come and do something like this. Absolutely not. With this man comes inside the masjid and he urinates inside the budget that tells you automatically that this person is not familiar and he's not aware of what takes place inside a masjid.

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

When we have promo

00:20:00 --> 00:20:08

Boston and New people come to the masjid. They may do some abnormal things. That is when our tolerance will be tested.

00:20:10 --> 00:20:23

The kids are going to be coming to the masjid is summer vacation, the kids are going to be coming to the masjid. Remember receptor brothers sisters, kids make noise. Kids make noise.

00:20:24 --> 00:20:46

When the kids are around the budget and they're making noise, there's two ways of dealing with that. Either you can go to them and yell at them, yell at them so much that they don't like come to the budget anymore. Or you can go outside to these kids and sit them down and very nicely and humbly. Explain to them that what they're doing is wrong.

00:20:47 --> 00:20:50

You there is not a single Hadith

00:20:52 --> 00:21:05

we find in the books of Hadith, where we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one saving once Did he raise his voice? And he yelled at the children inside the Masjid.

00:21:07 --> 00:21:16

Nah single time he he raised his voice and yelled at the teenagers are coming to the masjid. Yes, sometimes they don't know how to behave in a budget.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:20

But that's why as adults, we need to teach them.

00:21:21 --> 00:21:22

Never yell at them.

00:21:23 --> 00:21:32

Every single time in hurts you know that. It really really hurts. When I see people coming and yelling at kids at the masjid.

00:21:33 --> 00:21:40

We always say they are our future leaders, future leaders, future leaders. But we have no respect for those future leaders.

00:21:41 --> 00:21:52

As adults, the way we like to be respected, and the way we like to be dignified. These kids, they also like to be dignified and respected in the same way.

00:21:54 --> 00:22:27

So when people come to the masjid in Ramadan, and they're doing some abnormal things, talk to them. Do not yell at them Do not get angry at them. When you come to the masjid. And you have a security team outside they're telling you brother or sister, please go park over there. You know how many times I've been told that in the month of Ramadan people are coming and they're using foul language to the security team? Where's the tolerance? Is that tolerance only for the only for the physical body? Or is tolerance that we have to exhibit tolerance?

00:22:28 --> 00:22:31

So why do I have to park here? Why do I have to park there?

00:22:33 --> 00:22:36

Ramadan is about developing tolerance.

00:22:37 --> 00:22:41

When the kids will come to the masjid, you may have some kids who are special needs children.

00:22:43 --> 00:23:25

special needs children, their behavior is going to be normal. They may make some noise, and they will know what noises they're making. That's why they're considered special needs children. But guess what they are also part of our community. And they should also be respected. And they should also be looked after the way it was in the loss of the law party. He was alone. He made everyone part of that community. No matter who you are, no matter if you're an outcast. But you are part of this community built out on your lawn and I was was humiliated on his life. As soon as he came to the fold of Islam, the proper anti Islam gave him the most prestigious position. He made him people

00:23:25 --> 00:23:25


00:23:27 --> 00:23:28

a person like Abdullah

00:23:29 --> 00:23:47

and he's absolutely blind. I asked him Can a blind guy have a job nowadays? No. Because he cannot do his job efficiently. He cannot do his job efficiently. But think about this. He will always give the second guy infringer they will always do a dance for Fudger I'll

00:23:49 --> 00:23:57

give the first one he will give the second one people had to come to Abdullah Abdullah is high for Salah is not there he will give you

00:23:58 --> 00:24:05

a person who had known efficiency in his position in his job even the Prophet SAW Selim made him part of the community.

00:24:07 --> 00:24:10

When we see a person who's handicapped coming to the masjid

00:24:11 --> 00:24:29

when we see our elders coming to the masjid, our seniors coming to the masjid, they need some extra parking granted to them, where's our tolerance, we get upset. This is why Ramadan is coming upon us. Because to develop that tolerance.

00:24:30 --> 00:24:59

I get a lot of complaints in the room in Ramadan, be tolerant towards one another explain you have a problem. Explain your problem with the management. Go to them when we can't explain to them very nicely. Do not yell at them. Your problem with anyone in the staff members. Be kind to them. Be tolerant towards them. Explain to them I'm not saying don't address the problem, address the problem, but do it in the prophetic way. Do it in the prophetic way. May Allah subhanaw

00:25:00 --> 00:25:09

with Allah really give us the ability to benefit for the month of Ramadan May Allah subhanho wa Taala practice that tolerance over through the loss of a wall Monique was Allah

00:25:10 --> 00:25:15

Allah muscle if someone was to meet Allah was was when Mr Miyagi call him again
