brothers and sisters.
In our situation in the West,
we noticed that the atmosphere and the culture that we live in, they like to celebrate them in celebrations.
Some have a religious backgrounds to them, such as Christmas and Easter. And some of them have no basis to them whatsoever. And they are just there for the sake of entertainment. And for the sake of consumerism, one of those holidays is the one that just passed, which was Valentine's Day.
And Valentine's Day, is a day where one individual is supposed to store their affection to the next, whether it be a husband and wife, girlfriend or boyfriend, you know, whatever the case may be, that is the basis of the holiday.
And you just again by the will of Allah subhanaw taala that are left to right after this holiday happens to be about this year of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the one who is most beloved to us. The Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem said, that none of you truly believes until I am more beloved to him, then himself, his parents, his children, and all of mankind's, that none of you truly believe that there will be a deficiency in your Eman if I am not the most beloved to you, more than yourself more than your parents more than your children and all of mankind.
Now, how do we incite this love for the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
from a logical perspective, you will never be able to love that which you do not know. You cannot love that which you do not know. So the obvious answer is by getting to know the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And this is the very first reason that we need to study the fear of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. So I will attribute the lantana today will be about the importance of studying this era of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
in terms of describing the love that he contains hyperinflation, Mohammed sallallahu wasallam. And at 30, alongside Andrew, he was the slave of the apartment complex of Allah Hanyu Center at a very young age and his mother came to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she said, a lot, take my son and use him for your service. So from the age the young age of six, up until the death of the Prophet Mohammed salah and it was with him. And he said, the prophets of Allah Han he would send them never scolded me. And he never became upset with me, and he was the most conscious of people with him. And now look how he describes the answering of the Prophet Mohammed Salah lohani
was set up into Medina. He said that there was no de boisar in Medina than the day that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entered into it.
And there is no day gloomier and sadder than the day the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam died.
So you can see what type of effects the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam had upon the companions that he brought into their day. And when you put in from them, it is when did you think gloom and doom can be seen by the prophet sallallahu wasallam as well, that when the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam died, Mr. Raja who was in such a state of frenzy, he was such in such despair and in such disbelief that the Prophet Mohammed Salah La Jolla cinema died, he said that whoever says Mohammed is dead, I will stop him head off.
This is the state of shock and disbelief that he was in when you heard before Mohammed Salah la Hollywood cinema day
And this is the state that we are all in when it closed and beloved putting done except over the years, there wasn't any blood relation. There wasn't any mutual benefit relation. He wasn't a business partner. They weren't a business transaction or anything like that. But neither there was a brotherhood of Islam deposit of oneness Islam. And Amara Jamal Tarango loved him more than him on his own.
And in turn, so it's
one of the early piles of courage when he spied upon Medina and Prophet Mohammed sallallahu wasallam. And he reported that to koresh. He said, I have seen the Persian Empire. I've seen the needs of Abyssinia I received for Oculus, the leader of the Byzantines Empire. I have not seen a people who are more willing to sacrifice themselves for one night, then the Muslims are Holy Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
he started off as an enemy of Islam, and he narrates this about himself. He said that I had two stages in my life. I stage one deposit Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most despised and despicable individual in the face of my eyes. I could not stand his take your career to hear his name. Because as we know that when people accepted Islam encourage it split up some people are stuck in Islam and he left for Medina. And likewise, they left the religion of koresh. So this upsets the people so that those people who have family members that left they became upset because Mohamed Salah Hanuman sent them because they thought that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would do magic upon
people and that he would capture them and they would leave with him. So out nearly over here that he was the most despicable and hated pushing in my eyes.
And then everything since Allah guided me to Islam, and I went to the Prophet Mohammed Talabani within them. And Dr. Sunil Allah. I want to give you my pledge of allegiance to you, but on one condition that you forgive me for everything that I did in the past. And the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam laughed and smiled at that time. And he said, you're out? Do you not know that a person entering into Islam, it was the way all of it previously.
Did you not know that entering into Islam, what all of that away and then I told the Prophet Mohammed Salah, la Hollywood, Selim era Sula, LA, you are more beloved to me than my own self. And from then on, I was unable to raise my eyes, because I was shy of him. And now after his death, if you asked me to describe him, I would not be able to do so. Because every time I was with him, I would lower my gaze, and I was not looking directly in the face. This was the effect that a lot of money was still tight upon sometimes.
Now, time goes on. And you have Mr. Murray, the man of who the man of Medina, he said that when he used to be given, and the margin used to pay
homage to Lola, and they testified that there is no man that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, my face would turn pale, in remembrance of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Brothers and sisters, this is a state we need to reach with the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sinner. And the vast majority of us if not all of us in this room are not in the States. And it is purely due to the fact that we're ignorant of the era of the Prophet Muhammad, Allah, one sinner.
Now let's take a look at the important role that we play in the life of the content. And because we know that a lot Hollywood would give a lot of emphasis in teaching the Quran to the companions, He will judge them around, I teach them revolution disguises, and that the companions of the Allahu taala don't follow their footsteps. That one The third thing, they will teach the Quran, not everyone was able to read and write. So they will teach by translating meaning by repetition, they would say something, and the third the end and the successes will repeat after them. And this is how they learn the Quran. So you have sustain, even Ali, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu
wasallam, saying that I was taught the mobile, meaning the expedition and the battles of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam just as I was taught the Quran, and then you have Muhammad
the son of W, of course, he narrates that my father would teach me about the battles of the Prophet Mohammed Salah law, and he would tell him, just as we would be taught certain practices. He was done over and over again.
This is a wallet played in their life because they knew that it
had to be emulated. They knew that love had to be inserted into the believers for the public Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And there was no way to do that, except by teaching them the spirit of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So now moving on into another reason, that could be your Educator of the Quran. We know that the Quran as we discussed last week, is the very speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he will do unto us. Allah subhanho wa Taala directed with commandments directed with stories of the people of the past, directed with information of the future and information of heaven and hell.
Now, how are we to understand the Quran we understand it through the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Allahu taala takes that if you want to see the Quran walking, look at the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and Allah subhana wa to understand that we have revealed unto you the vicar, the remembrance, or the reminder, so that you may explain to mankind what was revealed unto them. This was the aim and the objective or department comments on the long run instead of Pseudomonas Prophethood, that we had to explain the code to the people. So in order to understand the Quran, you need to understand and see the life of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.
Likewise, studying the Sierra raises our hopes, and lifts our spirits.
When you look at the battles of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam starting off with the title of
what the Muslims are approximately 314 and operations are over 1000. And you see how the public some of them persevere, even though they had embargoed him, even though they had spread lies about him, even though he was of the Muslims was taken away, you probably saw a lot of it within him was still granted victory. Then it goes on in your head. And then you go on to the book, and you look at your expectations of the conflict.
And you see how the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam time and time again, regardless of the state he was in, in terms of poverty, or adversity.
Allah subhanho wa Taala advantage industry and this is a reminder for the believers that Allah subhanho wa Taala will always aid the believers and that by studying the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it increases our telephone in a lot of time with the Allah Don't let the kind of with the eye that will never abandon his sleep.
Likewise, the Sierra increases our inland in Allah subhanho wa Taala
when the Prophet Mohammed De La Nina was revealed portions of the Quran, especially the story of the Prophet that came before the Prophet Mohammed Salah La Jolla send them a message subhanho wa Taala that we have revealed unto you the stories of the prophets before you so that we may establish and make your heart firm. So almost no to Allah granted firmness to the coffin of alarm, it will set them through the stories of the people of the past. And likewise, by getting the serum deposit Mohamed Salah lohani was set up, we established a man in our hearts.
And then when you see that there was this individual who sacrificed everything that he has, from his work from his honor and dignity. They didn't even care what people thought about him or what people said about him.
And then he sacrificed his own physical body, that when he went to the bar, people stoned him kill him.
And then even though he was forgiving for all of the things, he used to stand up and clear till his feet would swell. All of these things the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam did for this oma and he supplicated for this oma to the degree that he said yeah, Allah Do not let this oma be destroyed due to poverty. And Allah. Allah granted this to him. And he said, Yeah, Allah Do not let this oma be destroyed by enemies. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was granted this as well. So this the petitioner department of Allah, tala me what's what is oma, and then on normal tiama while each person is saying nasty, nasty, each person is worried about everyone. So we have the Prophet
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying What?
My mama mama, each person is looking out for their own benefits. They each want to enter Paradise. These wants to save themselves from the helpless. I'm Congress de la la jolla
who was in my coma how
My own get into paradise, how will they be saved from the hellfire.
The Sierra is one of the greatest miracles that Allah Jaime silom was given. We mentioned last week that the Quran is the greatest miracle that because of Mohammed Salah it was sent him was given, but another great miracle a gcrf of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam,
we see that at the end of certain Salta, almost Sanatana said in a sham.
That's the one who criticizes you and says that about you. He is the one who is cut off. He is the one who will be cut off. The reason of revelation of this ayah is that some of the people started saying that deposit some a lot of money was sent him had four zeros, yet he had no men, meaning that he had four daughters, but he had no little children. So that's the genealogy of the covenant promise of Allah Hi, Mustafa would end and no one would carry his name, and no one would carry his lineage. And this is what is used to say. And in the in the Arab culture, this is a sign of weakness, and a sign of something that is considered despicable and low. But I'm not gonna change
over here that the one who said this about you, he was the one who will be cut off and he is the one who will not be remembered.
And clear and and and surely this is what's happening. This man who said this about the farmer,
we don't even know his name, yet the name of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the name that is mentioned and is the name that is remembered. If you look at the name, in Joshua Tree, and in, you know, all other forms of records, the name that is mentioned the most people are named after the most is the name of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Every country that you go to, you will have you know, plenty of pages of Muhammad. And that Allah, Allah says,
and we have waived your remembering, that he is remembered with every footwork and every talk that we start with, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to say blessings upon him, and every summer we are promised to send blessings and peace upon him. And likewise, in each and every dollar that we make, we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to teach and blessings upon him. So this is the length of the polynomial allamani to that degree, he was raised. Now how is this era the greatest miracle of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam are one of the greatest miracles. If the Adam says that if the Prophet Mohammed Salah long on Instagram was given no other miracle, despite the fear of the Prophet
Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam this would, this would have been enough of a proof upon mankind. And you can think about it. Think about any individual, any individual that you like, from the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. From the leaders have arms from the president, that I have existed and from the leaders of the world, no one biography is recorded in such detail as the fear of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, from how he lived his day to day life, to how he read expeditions, to how he played and even as to how he died, and how he was burned. Each and every detail is recorded about Department of Commerce, Allah, how it was set up, and no one else's biography is recorded to
such in detail.
Likewise, in terms of entering China, one needs to know what the prophet sallallahu wasallam believed in and what he did. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day
he sat with his companion, and he drew a straight line. And he said, this is a strict tab.
And then from that state has the view of many branches. And he said, these are the types of Miss guidance, and upon each type is a devil calling to that time. And the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam once explains his companions, that is placed is what I and my companions are upon. So in order to reach that status, you have to see and understand and believe what the prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam believes in. And this is what happened. The sooner was Yama, the stage set is all about believing and acting like the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu was send them
something pushing us to our times. We know that the disbelievers especially the media, they like to portray the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Daniel send them in a very negative light. They tell you that he was a child molester. They say that he cheated money. He cheated people out of his money. They say that he fabricated the Quran that he came up with
is a different topic or it's okay from the the Bible and the Torah and we just derived it like that. All these lines are straight about the Prophet Muhammad from a lot sooner. And the best way to define the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam other than our physical actions of goodness, is butchering the fear of the Prophet Mohammed de la Nutella and refuting those allegations and good misconceptions. A person who does not know the fear of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cannot refute those next conception and those allegations. Likewise, when we studied in fear of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, looking at it from a psychological perspective, that
when you want to be the best, you have to emulate the best. Meaning that if you want to be the best slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala, you want to be the best leader, you want to be the best husband, you want to be the best father, you look no further than the best of each of them. And the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the best in each of these categories.
So if you want to be the best of leaders, you want to be the best department, you want to be the best of foreigners, you need to study the fear of the past in the comments below on this thinner. Look at the way that he dealt with China. Starting from the date of their wedding. He went in and offered Isla de la Tanana milk to drink. The husband offered the wife, not the wife offering the husband. And I shall read the Allahu taala article, China, she declined that she said, I am not hungry. And then we call it the Lalomanu center just did with her. And he said that lies and Congress do not belong together. mean that I know that you're hungry, there's no need for you
tonight. Just take it. So the husband served the wife in this scenario. And likewise, Chateau de la has died and has no it's about the relationship that she had with the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. She said that when I was young, I used to pray to the Father Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And he would like me to teach him, he wouldn't let me beat him. And then when I grew older, and I gained weight, then because it'll allow Hollywood wouldn't let me win. So this is the relationship that he
had with his wife. Now look how he was with his daughter. Upon the death of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he called Fatima Jolla who turned on her clothes.
And he whispered something in her ear, to which she started to weep, in which she started to weep. And then she would then he would switch something into into fortimanager longtan and adhere to she started to laugh of mouth. And then I shadowed Yolanda Tanaka. She always wanted to know what was being said, so that she could learn and implement and likewise teach it to the people. So she At first, the first time that the peninsula Hollywood cinema whispered something to hear what did he whisper
Fatima? The Allahu taala just said that he whispered to me that his time was coming to an end. And even though I know I knew I shouldn't cry, I just couldn't hold back my tears.
Then she asked Fatima, then why did you start laughing when he was coming to you again, he said that I would be the first of his family to be entered into politics, or the first one to be reunited with him.
Meaning that even though he
was leaving the earth, that forced him I would be the closest relative to him that would die straight after. And this is what happens. I found my player Fatima rhodiola hutan anhydride.
And she laughed at this, she laughed at her own death, just because she will be able to be with her partner again. This was the type of relationship that he
had with his children. And then with his companions,
and with no he said before, that he will have people who are the most ready to sacrifice themselves for the sake of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. to such a degree that during the Battle of Amara, one of the female companions, and era was coming towards you pop into
your head and he wants to earn it so that she could protect the apartment with a little aloha new center.
Dream of containing not in a male companion.
And then likewise, the stories of each scenario and then if you want to be the best at what you do, look at the state and look at the example of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
an ending of bookkeeping electric switch today.
The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has many as several rights upon
the most important of those rights, as you mentioned, is to love the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
Now this isn't just an empty low. We know when our times we like to use words that when we don't have any means to them, we will tell people that we love them for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, we will tell people that we like them, yet we don't do anything to show it. When they are in a time of need, we're not there to help them. Likewise, when we know that they want only something, we're not there to provide this for them. This cannot be the same scenario with the level of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it has to be I love that is shown by following the example of the Prophet Mohammed Salah it was sinner. And this is by this is only done by studying car on the
parking lot by News Center.
So if we were to leave with just a few examples from the theater department, Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam attorney then emphasized from them His mercy to the young DEP Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he is not permitted, who did not show mercy to the young and did not give the right to the elders, that he should hide their position. We are supposed to show mercy to the young and respects to the elders, and he is not from us, who does not do that. And we see that from the theater department, Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, that one person was preying upon the public, Muhammad Sallallahu taala
was in touch that leading the people in jamara Hutton was preying on the prophets of Allah Han, he would sit down and just stay down in such depth. So such and we'll finish playing and finish doing what he would he was doing. The Companions there actually when he says that they actually are similar. Why was it that you said that so long. He said I wanted to wait for him to finish playing with what he was playing, enjoying what he was doing.
And in terms of taking care of your elders, we know that departments have a Wahhabi within them, even the elderly women in his community and his society, he would go to them and he would visit them and ask them if they needed anything. And likewise, Invoker needed mentioned that the old lady would come to him and seek advice from him and seek guidance from him. So this is the relationship that he had with the elderly. So the father
fulfilled those rights. And likewise, the rights of Allah subhanaw taala he was the most beautiful of Allah subhana wa Tada. I've mentioned him
that regardless of what was happening, he would always remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and his responsibilities towards Allah subhanho wa Taala. The day that his son died, the day that his son died, the sun eclipsed last day, and the people started saying that look, look at the greatness of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam that the sun has eclipsed for the death of his son. And you probably
didn't know this is not the case. But rather, the eclipse is a sign from the signs of Allah subhana wa Donna and I am just the slave and messenger of Allah.
So we always remember that decision of Allah subhanho wa Taala was the greatest and his message was to tell the people about Allah subhanho wa Taala and the work of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon him and God for the first 13 years in Lucha, all he did was wasted man. He didn't enforce any measure worship upon them. He didn't call them to actually make a sacrifice. But only one day a man was raised. He called them to it. So we increase their demand, so that they will be able to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala an apostle.
So remember the rights of the people around you. From the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he even said that gibreel talks to me about the rights of the neighbors, so much so that I started to believe that they would inherit, inherit from and as we know, it is only the core family member that inherits from the Muslim. It is only because family members and he started to repeat the rights of the neighbors so much so that I thought that they would inherit from me. So everyone has the rights. And this was the key theme or one of the key theme of the current Mohamed Salah Han who said that whoever had a right upon him, whether it was a lot of data, whether it was his neighbors,
whether his companions, whether his wife, whether they should deposit from a loved one would sacrifice himself so that their rights would be fulfilled. And it was through sacrifice of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we as Muslims, or 10s and 1000s of kilometers away from where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one and we're still able to practice this Deen and we still have information about the sin and we still have knowledge of this deep as we take the time of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam only through his sacrifice. So brothers and sisters, let us not let that sacrifice
to waste studying the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I invite you to study with me the data in our future sessions, for indeed, and following the part of the Mohammed Mohammed sallallahu wasallam is to success will ask you to do something
about economy and employment. And he asked me,
I don't think there should be any questions, but we can address them.
The simplest broken car that I've seen is when the moon splits when the moon split versus MANOVA query is one of the simplest books and it is a very enjoyable read. If you want something more complicated, then
it's very good. And then, in terms of more recent books, there's a book by hydrous sallahu. I don't remember who published it, but it is a very good comparison of the zero department comments of Allah against Salahi.
A very good comparison.
Oh, and likewise. Actually, this is probably one of the best books in the English language was translated about two years ago by chef Andy Uppsala. And what he does is he mentioned ordinary serum deposits to them in terms of what happened. Then after he talked about the benefits that we can derive from it, and three volumes. It was published by Dr.
