brothers and sisters, it is a fact and reality of life, that Allah subhanho wa Taala tests and tries each and every one of us and that the higher we increase ourselves in our Eman and the closer we get to Allah subhanho wa Taala the more Allah subhanho wa Taala tries us and tests us. And this is why we see the prophets Allah lohani was send them advise this and told us that when Allah Subhana Allah to Allah loves the people he tries them is that I have Allahu coman inshallah. And also, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us, that the people who are trying to the most are the messengers and the prophets, and then those who are highest in demand, and then likewise and so forth and so
And we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that if we study his theory, and we study our Islamic history, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was greatly tested and tried.
And he, like any other human being, at times would become upset, and at times, he would need to be comforted and solid.
And then who would comfort him and solisten the one who created him in sustain him, none other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. Brothers and sisters, one of the greatest solace is that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent to the prophets of Allah Han he was send them
is a surah so small, that most of us recite it when we're tired and lazy. But when we want to get ourselves over with, we received this sort of when we're not in the mood to remember Allah subhanaw taala fully, we recited the surah yet if we were to understand the great blessing behind the surah and the great effect that this sort of hide upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we will not recite it in such a state. It will be respected when we want to become closer to Allah subhanaw taala. Brothers and sisters the surah is none other than sorbitol. Joseph, Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
Oh, don't be in learning English and Banjara Jean Bismillah Ar Rahman AR rocking in.
For son in Arabic I wonder how in the world a better Allah subhanaw taala says in these noble is
that indeed, we had granted you and given you alfalfa
for soil layer a big one. So praise to your Lord and sacrifice for him. Indeed, the one who opposes you and the one who hates you, He is the one who was cut off and severes Allah Allah.
So Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is consoling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, through all the hardships he faced with the courage
All the other non believers at that time, unless the time notes Allah is consoling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with this surah he says, indeed we have given you altos
brothers and sisters, what is
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked by his noble companions. And this is no he didn't he must not remember.
That when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked this question, he said, I will tell you there is a river in paradise. It is whiter than milk.
It is sweeter than honey. And it's fragrance more beautiful than that of misc in it, or pearls, which are the ornaments of drinking so many that they are like the stars in the sky.
And around this river, our tents are made out of frozen coils, and houses made out of gold and silver. Brothers and sisters, this is the description that alert messenger was given by lots of fun to watch about atossa. And look at the beauty of this timeline, as you know which one of us would want to be deprived? Until this is a question to ask. So now, this great blessing that Allah Subhana Allah gave him and if you return back to the books of 15 you see the likes of Abdullah do our best. And slide away Namaste pinata mercy upon which because of the fear of this oma, that they said, that also in this ayah it is indeed a river in Paradise, but rather, it is also every single blessing
that Allah Subhana Allah bestowed upon the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam
from dirty Santa that Allah subhanaw taala meaning the messenger ship from the tranquillity that Allah subhanaw taala used to bestow upon him from the noble companions that Allah subhanho wa Taala granted him, these are all possible sources, because also linguistically from samsara. meanings are plentiful, and this plentiful ness is a 13th of all goods, all great amounts of goods that Allah subhanaw taala granted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or included in this ayah now after all must have high notes, Allah mentions this to the prophets of Allah Han he was send them and make sure he recognizes the great blessings of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, what does Allah subhanaw
taala tell the Prophet sallallahu it was even after this, for suddenly they are becoming
and pray to your Lord and sacrifice for him. Now brothers and sisters, after Allah Subhana Allah
mentions to the particular law while you're still in this great blessing that he has been granted. Why would Allah subhanho wa Taala Tell him to pray to Allah subhana wa to Allah and sacrifice for him?
Because it is in the praying to Allah subhanho wa Taala and in the sacrificing for Allah subhanho wa Taala that the essence of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reseller is seen that the reseller the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with was to alleviate all forms of idolatry and to get rid of and eliminate all forms of polytheism. This was the reseller of Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And this is why he we emphasize here that even though we have granted you all this good, do not forget the message that you were sent to is that you were sent to eliminate this idolatry meaning the worshipping of other than Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and the directing of the
rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala to other than Allah subhanho wa Taala Do not forget this. This is why you were sent. This is why I was messenger. So the lohani was sent it was told the other reasons why. Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told that this was to show the greatness of these acts.
It is commonly said by the scholars of Islam, that Islam was to have a motto, or a slogan, it would be seen in one of the last Ayat of Surah Al anon.
What Allah subhanho wa Taala says to the prophets of Allah Han He will send them home. In masala tea you will know Suki mafia or Merci de la hora de La Nina that say all Mohamed Salah ha listen to the people, that indeed my prayer, my sacrifice, my living and my dying are for none other than Allah subhana wa Santa. This is the very essence of our livelihoods that all aspects of our life should be far less than final Medina. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is re emphasizing the motto of Islam, if you'd like to call it that, that every action that we do, from those actions of worship, to those actions of our regularly livelihood, should be for none other than Allah subhanaw taala
And lastly, one of the main reasons that Allah subhanaw taala tells this or reveal this ayah to the prophets of Allah why'd you send them is
Allah subhana wa tada continues to increase the good, and it's a lesson for each and every one of us that Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala has granted all of us many, many blessings. He has granted 1000 cores, he has granted us, our lives, our sight, the ability to breathe without having to think our ability to eat calmly and peacefully. So j to be able to digest our food, use our blessings from Allah subhanaw taala. And indeed, the greatest of these blessings is none other than our Islam. But in order to, to maintain that blessing within sight inside the blessing in order to increase the goodness inside that listing. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in sort of Rahim,
Allah insha, Allah as he then know, that if you are thankful to Allah subhanaw taala, then I will increase you in those blessings, right, that will increase the good that is in those blessings. So every time Allah subhanaw taala bestows you with a blessing, every time I'd love to find out Allah grant you some good and you want to increase the height that is in it, know that you should say Allah subhanaw taala. And what is it means to thank Allah subhanaw taala the same thing of Allah subhanaw taala can be done in many ways. But the key aspects and the main ways that it can happen is through two things. One is verbally, meaning that we thank Allah subhanaw taala verbally, that we
say Alhamdulillah right. Obviously Allah I am grateful to you. This is how we thank Allah subhanaw taala. verbally, that we praise Him, and we thank him. And in actions the way we think Allah subhanaw taala is by using those blessings that Allah subhanaw taala graduates, for good things and a good means. And this is what we see in this is that in the signing of Allah subhanaw taala is seen through the praying to Allah subhanho wa Taala and sacrificing for him. Now a lot of us we may not understand this great act of sacrificing, but at the time of the Arabs at that time, sacrificing was a very big thing, when they wanted to honor a person, they will sacrifice for them till this very
day when they want to honor one of their guests, they will take a sheep and slaughter it for him. And then they will place it including the head in front of them. And this is considered an honoring of the guest. And likewise when they want to to honor their saints and their idols, they will do the same, but almost 100 what Allah tells us that this honor, and the sacrifice should be none other for none other than Allah subhanaw taala and this is why this is why we see that in the final passage in the federal pilgrimage, our last messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He didn't sacrifice one camel. He didn't sacrifice two camels. He didn't sacrifice two camels. But remember bajada Rahim
Allah mentions in the hadith of Jagger, that he sacrificed 63 channels, and that after he became wearisome and tired, he said, Yeah, I need continue the rest. So we see that almost messenger sallallahu Sallam did not fall short, in any way of thanking Allah subhanaw taala and expressing his gratitude. And again, this is a lesson for each and every one of us.
And in this last ayah of this very short, yes, noble, beautiful and eloquent surah, Allah subhanho wa Taala understood, and those who oppose you and hate you, then indeed, they are the ones who persevered and cut off of all good. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. He mentioned in this surah exclusively, that anyone who opposes the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and shows any form of hatred, then indeed, he is the one that will be cut off.
The scholars of Islam mentioned two specific reasons for the revelation of the surah. And this is found in different cases, the first of them being that of the opinion of others, and other than Him is explicitly from his students as well, that there was a man by the name of Allah in April
of one and asked me that there was a man by the name of an asset in Hawaii. And he was from the enemies of Islam from the harshest of opponents of all US messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And every time we publish, the La Jolla films name was mentioned in one of the gatherings of the forest, and he used to be present. He used to say, how can you honor a man who has been cut off? How can you follow a man and praise a man who has been cut off in service and what he meant by this was that before we saw a lohani was send them he was granted daughters through witches in his village was continued, but every single son, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was granted with
passed away, this is the will of Allah subhanaw taala and his desire and it was a great good that Allah subhanaw taala knows of and bless this ummah with and this is what he used to say. He used to say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been cut off, and he is the one who has been severely and then also turned over to Allah revealed this ayah now in essence, if you look at it, even though the Prophet sallallahu Sallam may have not had
Any living sons who continued his progeny and genealogy, yet, he is the most remembered person on this planet, that any man, no man is more praised. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the face of the earth, you will find the greatest of athletes. The smartest of people include your eyes, Einsteins, and your president and anyone else, but it is the name of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that is raised and honored. And indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala lived up to his prophet lived up to his promise, when he said, what a SWOT analysis, that indeed we have raised the remembrance of Your Honor, then indeed, we have increased and preserved this for you. This is a
promise from Allah subhanaw taala. And this is what we see it till this day, that even though the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam may have not had those sons that continued on after him, but Allah subhanaw taala still protected his honor, and still increased his remembrance. Now I saw this man, and asked him know why, most of you are probably hearing him for the first time.
But in essence, you see that his genealogy and his progeny are more remembered than he was.
In the last, one of the great companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and his son, Abdullah Namah. Another great and it was just companion, one of the most,
one of the greatest narrators of Hadees meaning that he meant he mentioned an area the most traditional forms of love and instead of they are more remembered than this man, I'll ask them why. And indeed, this is a sign from Allah subhana wa tada that he promises us again, that those people who oppose Allah's Messenger sallallahu wasallam. They will be the ones who are caught off interviewed from outward.
And before I end up this first photo of mine, Mr. Muslim Rahim, Allah Allah, he mentioned a hadith pertaining to also surgeons. And this is a very important tradition that we need to reflect and think about. And that is, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day was dealing with companions, slumber over kingdoms, meaning that he was very tired. And it was as if the promise of a lot of money was sent him had fallen asleep.
So when the companions kept on looking at the pockets of aloha to send him, they saw that when he arose, he woke with a great smile. And they said, Yeah, rasulillah what is it that has made you smile? And he said, Allah Subhana, Allah has revealed a surah to me, and then you we studied the idea of spiritual social.
And then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, was acquired by the companions, the others to the left, you know, tell us more, tell us more. And then because Allah lohani was send them, he said that I was in Jenna. And it was around this great river, and describing it with the description that had mentioned previously. Yet, a man from my alma came forth, and the angels came and prevented him from drinking. So I asked them, Why have you prevented this man from drinking from this world, when this was sorry, from this river, when this river even though it is mine, it is for all the believers to drink from. So why have you prevented this man from drinking? And then the angels responded, they
said, you do not know what this man innovated into the dean, after you passed away, meaning that this man, he introduced new ideologies, introduced new things into the religion may be trying to increase, you know, or trying to get close to Allah subhanho wa Taala, he might have had good intentions, but his action did otherwise. And this is something we need to reflect on, brothers and sisters, that any action that we do for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, or other than that, we should be trying to emulate the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah doesn't inform us and tell us about the character of the Prophet sallallahu send them to just know
it for the sake of knowing, but rather he tells us about it, so that when they follow it, and we may likewise become of this great exemplary for those people who come after us.
So we see that any act of worship that we want to bring forth to Allah subhanaw taala and want him to accept, it should have two main conditions to it. The first one, that's a being of a flawless being that is sincerely for Allah subhanho wa Taala and the second being of an Masada or following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Apolo county has a watchdog federal law, Holly wonderful, Melissa, it must be meaningful isn't possible for us to start reading
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Mashallah ilaha illallah wa Jalla wa, ala Muhammad den, Abu hura.
Brothers and sisters, we have seen how Allah Subhana Allah, through the smallest of Saurus conveys the greatest of messages
and one of the greatest atrocities that
The Muslims have seen in this 21st century is none other than which is the first news or the current news of all the newspapers today. And that is how some of the people of our times think that they have become greater than Allah subhanho wa Taala, that they think that they're able to do whatever they will, and whatever they please, and try to justify it under the name of freedom. They're like,
we preserve freedom. And we grant our citizens, the right to express themselves any way they like, any way we know they want to express themselves. So what they came up with was pictures or portraits of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, or what they call to teachers, many cartoons of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, in which they tried to demoralize and debase the honor and the position of the prophets of Allah Hanyu center. Now brothers and sisters, it is not just the Muslims who revere the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and recognize the great stance he had as a person and as a leader, and as a politician, and as a militant, but rather the non Muslims recognize this as well. A
lot of you may have heard that a book was compiled, sometime during the 80s and the 90s about the hundreds graded 100 greatest personalities, who was number one, it was none other than our beloved Prophet sallallahu wasallam This is something they have come to understand that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Not only does he have a great station in Islam, but also throughout history, that Allah subhanho wa Taala had granted this to him, that he would be recognized for his greatness throughout time.
And now in order to go to extremes and show how free they really are, they go and portray and draw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in the wickedness of fashions and manners. If you look at this, it should make you sick and disgusted and should enrage you in anger.
One of the pictures explicitly to kind of lahardee it shows the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on top of a mountain coming down from Jeddah and he's with the people in front of him. And he's telling them stop stop. Jenna has run out of virgin phenylalanine they are not only watching the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but are mocking the basic creed of the Muslims, that Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant the believers the fullness of gender, they are making a mockery of this. Now, what is the Islamic stance to these people or what it will happen to these people? Obviously this type of thing is not new to Islam, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, as we know, was
criticized before and was made fun of before and it happened in one of the battles and Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned this scenario specifically in the Quran surah Toba in the 65. In the stiffest. ayah Allah subhanaw taala says called Abdullah he is he was only he Quinton sister has his own Lucha de ropa de casa de la de Monaco. We're in now for Anton if at the main cons no as they both are into the unknown can oh my god mean Allah subhanho wa Taala citizens say, is it with Allah and His messenger and he signs that you make a mockery? Indeed you have disbelieved after you've had what he meant. And even if we were to forgive a group of you, even if we were to forgive a group of
you, we would punish the rest, for indeed you are criminals. This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says about those people who make a mockery of the deen of Allah subhana wa tada and make a mockery of Allah messenger sallallahu sallam. So now obviously, it is upon every single Muslim, to do what he can to oppose this by educating the non believers about the prophets of Allah Hanuman and his greatness. And we should make sure that these type of atrocities do not take place in our localities in our countries in our regions, we need to make sure of this, this pulls petitioners into design. And likewise, those countries that are propagating this ideology of freedom, even
though it is more of an act of transgression, they need to be boycotted from the products, that if we are not in need, or we can find substitutes for their products, we need to cut those products off and make our position known that we will not allow such heresies to take place in front of us. Obviously, in our times, were brought up with the ideal ideology to be passive about everything that we should be very egotistical and just care about ourselves. And not terrible anything else, but just not distensible Muslim. The Muslims are one body and one building and at the height of them is sable brush your
puppet some of our new center at the head of them of this building at the height of this stature is departed from aloha to send them and if you try to attack something at its head, you're attacking everything else. So this attack upon the public
Aloha Neil satin, each and every one needs to take personally. It was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who said that none of you will truly believe until I'm more beloved to him than his worth and his family and all of that kind. Then why is it that we find Muslims today who do not care about this? Why is it that when such things are mentioned in front of them, they just stay quiet. They're like, we don't want to say anything. We should remain quiet, we should be peaceful people, brothers and sisters, there's a time to be peaceful. And there's a time to defend your honor and respect. If you let your honor and respect, be antagonize and attacked all the time, people will just run over
left, right and center. And the soma has been asleep long enough. It is time we took a stance against those people who attack us. And obviously I'm not talking about strapping bombs around yourself and going out and attacking people. This is not what I'm talking about. But rather the greatest weapon of belief a person can have is an education and an ability to express his beliefs and the ability to express what he stands for any logical and reasonable manner. And this is what Islam properties. And this is why Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he told us that the seeking of knowledge is incumbent upon every single person, whether they be male or female. And this
is why the profits on the long run he will certainly lead through example, that those companions who were around him, he trained them to be the best of leaders, he trained them to be the most honorable events, you will not find the likes of Abu Bakar on an ominous man and Ollie ever again. Because they were from the disciples and companions of the Prophet sallallahu it was sent him they had what you call prophetic nurturing, and you will never see it again. And the posse salallahu alayhi wa sallam was, you know, this was particular to him. But this doesn't prevent us from trying to be like them, that we stand for Islam when we need to stand for Islam. And we're passive people when we need
to be passive when the time allows for it. So brothers and sisters, each and one of us needs to take a stance against this. For indeed the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has said, menorah amin C'mon Quran for you here who be ready
for release any idea for the fall This was early adoption in the departments A lot of it was Selim has said that Which one of you or whoever amongst you sees an evil deed, they let him change it with his hand. And if he is unable to, then let him do it with his tongue. And if he is unable to then let him hate it when his hearts and that is the weakest. So now brothers and sisters, it is up to you to decide where you want to be in this study. Do you want to be at the top of it or at the bottom of it, the bottom of it being that you hate it in your hearts? And if you're thinking or if you feel inside yourself that, you know, I don't need to take a stance on this. Or this only affects
the Muslims in Europe, or it is only an attack of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you need to recheck your email. You need to know that this is one of the signs of hypocrisy that you have no love. You have no respect. You have no what they call Avira for the profits on the left values and meaning no will of protecting him. Trying to Hosanna was a low level center.
And obviously this Avira is for all of these showings of Islam. Meaning that whether it be for the book of Allah subhanaw taala, or whether it be for the son of the Prophet sallallahu or whether it be an attempt at the Kaaba or any other showings of Islam, we need to have this protectiveness for them for this is from the sons of Eman
