We bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as his final messenger. We ask Allah to send his peace and blessings upon him the prophets and messengers that came before him, his family and companions that served alongside him and those that follow in his busted path until the day of judgment. And we asked a lot to make us amongst them alone. I mean, the brothers and sisters from a purely spiritual perspective for a moment completely, punting anything to do with the current political climate or context regarding what is taking place in France. And what is sparking certain global conversations in the Shani aka Who would ever tell? Verily, your enemy Oh, Mohammed Ali Salim
is the one who is cut off the word that he used to describe the French President up till today. And looking into that term avatar, and the context of that verse, how often do we read suits and Kota, so really short sutra, so especially those who are accustomed, I should say, all of us as we're maybe trying to get quickly through a Salah or whatever it may be, or a short time and health outcomes very quickly, but like sort of that awesome. And some of those other short sodas that we read, it has such a profound meaning and a context in a shiny occur, who will ever tell? And I want us to go back to what this meant to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who received these
verses, in response to the taunts and the insults that were being hurled towards him, Salalah hardy who was said, and this was a particularly unique one, a particularly hurtful one that thrived on concepts from Delhi from the days of ignorance. They used this claim against the prophets lie some of them they said that you will be at the top you are cut off you are a distance one. After the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his baby boy died
because they said that the prophets lie Selim does not have sons he only has girls. And we know the attitude and the days of ignorance that people had towards daughters. Allah tells us about it multiple times in
the days of ignorance they saw daughters as a curse and sons as a blessing. And Allah subhana wa tada completely reversed that discussion, not saying that sons are a curse, but they that they are all blessings and that is the Mohammed Rahim Allah said the prophets are the fathers of daughters, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved his daughters. And in a society where people buried their daughters alive, the prophets lie some treated his daughters like queens.
He treated them with a special type of treatment that no parent gave to their child, even a father to a son and that deeply ignorant society. But when they said to the Prophet slice of them as his two sons, passed away in infancy, they said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that your name will not survive. No one will carry your name. Up till you're cut off, your four daughters will go on and get married and carry someone else's name, their children will carry someone else's name and you will be cut off. And that was a form of the taunting and the mockery towards the prophets lie Selim. In a deeply vulnerable moment, it hurt the prophets, I send them to bury six of his seven
children. And to add to that injury, and say you are a cut off one up top is literally an animal that has his tail cut off, nothing will survive you. No one will remember your name. No one will speak your name. No one will carry your name. Fast forward to where we are right now. How many kids in the world are named Mohammed subpanel Pamela, it really is a miracle. How many kids in the world are named Mohammed let's just talk about that one particular insult of avatar, the most popular male name in the world in fact, the most popular name in the world and by the way, now in the top 10. Even in the United States, Mohammed the highly praised because just as Allah Subhana Allah says,
what are they correct? We have exalted you're mentioned that the name of the prophets lie Selim will be shouted 24 seven through the through the call for prayer that has had to endure Muhammadan rasul Allah will be in the intimate conversations that people have with a loss of Hannibal to Allah 24 seven in their prayer around the globe, that no matter what time of the day it is, and no pandemic can take it away. everywhere around the world, there are people saying sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sending their peace and blessings upon him around the globe around the clock and no pandemic and no insult and no fear can take that away. His name is exalted forever sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and
in the Hereafter, as well as he has the highest level, the most praise worthy station in paradise. So think about those moments and how they tried to hurt him. And they called him up top and look how it all turned around.
And this is the Sunnah of Allah, with the righteous, and with the prophets, and specifically with the Prophet sallallahu. It was send them all of the prophets were opposed, humiliated, fought against, and people tried not just to kill them and persecute them but to remove the earth or remove the effects of their message. Whether it was Moses or Jesus or whoever it may be. Whether it was Yusuf Ali Salam thrown into the well, and then into a prison cell rotting away, only to find the same people that threw him into the well in front of him as he sits on a throne. Now, every single one of them went through this but what does Allah subhanho wa Taala say to us, to resume and Tisha
what to the lumentum Sha, Allah honors when he wills and Allah humiliates him, he wills we say it every single night in our wits of Salah in our opponents in the hula, the lumen wallet, whether your Islam and our date, Allah will not allow for his beloved ones, to be humiliated, eventually they will be honored and those that seek to humiliate them will be humiliated, and they will be dishonored. And this is a personal lesson that we should take, by the way, that when we are upon the truth, when we are upon righteousness and persecuted for that may Allah put us on the truth in unrighteousness and persecuted and hated and insulted for that eventually, Allahu Allah, Latina
Allah is the protective friend of the righteous. And Allah subhana wa tada honors whom He wills and humiliates whom he will so we take that as a personal lesson for ourselves as well. Not just about the prophets lie Selim and what he went through that if we go through these things, that Allah subhana wa tada honors those that honor, the truth. Look at what happened with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam Abu lahab uniquely tried to humiliate the profit slice alone, the only one who stood up and had the nerve to use the words against his nephew turban Nikita Mohammed and Allah subhanaw taala uniquely humiliated him Tibet the other Abdullah have been water.
Allah specifically named Abu lahab and uniquely humiliated The one who tried to humiliate the prophets lie Selim Abuja, oppose the prophets I send them on the basis of name on the basis of legacy. It was on the basis of legacy that Abuja, oppose the prophets, I send them their bed to Hashem, we're been Muslim, we can't let them win because our names have to go down as a superior tribe, and look forever. He is known as the father of ignorance, Abuja and I remember some panela The first time I went to hedge, and I saw the graves of the show head up ahead, and I saw about here, the graves of the companions in Medina. And the way that the people were saying Salaam to the
prophets, I summon double bucket and oma and I thought to myself, you know, I wonder where the graves of Abuja and Abu lahab are, I don't know till now. Where are they forgotten, completely disregarded, humiliated? Because they tried to humiliate the loved one of the last soprano what's sad, they tried to humiliate the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the only time they are remembered is in disgrace. The places that they tried to contain the light of Allah subhana wa tada in Medina and Mecca where they tried to purge extinguish the light of Allah subhana wa Tada. It's from there that the light of Allah and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shown and spread to
the rest of the world.
And so in a shanty, aka who an avatar, the one who takes you as an enemy hosoda Allah is the one who will be cut off by Allah subhanho wa Taala cut off from all good is the one who will be humiliated. Now for us dear brothers and sisters, it is very easy for us to take offense as we should, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam His name is done with what is done with in France and other places and when they seek to humiliate us by dishonouring, the Prophet slicin but let's think for a moment for ourselves. deprivation
equals distance from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
And it is the month of robiola well, and separate from all political contexts and climates. There's no other month of the year where the prophets lie Selim is more remembered in some capacity than the month of obeah and over throughout the Muslim world, but let's remove all of that and think at a deeply personal level. The one who is behaving the one who is stingy and deprived is the one who hears the name of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and does not say someone Lahore I think he was Southern Morocco and for AS degree Ronnie his Salaam said, who feels too stingy to send Salawat on his name sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he
prayed for you though he never met you, increasing in the Salawat deprivation is distance from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu. It was Selim witchy magmatic Rahim Allah tada aptly described as the Safina of know how to use Salaam as Noah's Ark for us, are we depriving ourselves from the ark of Noah? Are we depriving ourselves from Salawat? From the sinner deprivation on the Day of Judgment is,
is the one who is pushed away, a barrier is put between him and the prophets lie some as the prophets lie some comes to him with a glass of water, the way that he came to us with righteous guidance in this world. And he's pushed away and says that this is a person that changed your religion after you that's deprivation, deprivation, from his proximity on the Day of Judgment,
and have become a meaningful ophira the most beloved of you to me, and the closest of you, to me on the Day of Judgment is the one with the best of character.
Allah sent him on a hook in arleen with an exalted standard of character in the memoir is to the automne macadam and Allah I was only sent to perfect, good character. If your co workers if your world does not come to love Mohammed Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam through seeing your character manifesting what you learn from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then there is room for introspection. What distinguishes me? If I am a follower of a mercy to the worlds of the one who was sent with an exalted standard of character, what distinguishes me How do I reflect that mercy and that good character? Because that's proximity on the day of judgment to the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wasallam how much sujood am I doing? At night? How much of my time is my face spent on the ground prostrating the way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to prostrate because he told it'll be a little cabin estimated all the allowed tada and who to assist me with your claim of one thing modificata. Habib Salalah, Hardy was on the companionship of the beloved symbolized by them on the Day of Judgment, assist me Be careful not to salute by increasing in your prostration. So deprivation is depriving ourselves from sudduth especially in times that should be driving us to the prayer rug, especially at these times of uncertainty where we should be taking our burdens to our
prayers and releasing those burdens from our heart. That brings us closer to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will enter madman, that and you are with the one that you love.
How much do you love the prophets all along? It was something
we love him. We love Allah, we love the prophets. We love the righteous. How much do you love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? How much do I love him and tomorrow man above you are with the one that you love. And so deprivation the greatest deprivation at the top is the one who takes him as an enemy, so a lot of it was but to simply make emotional claims of closeness is not enough.
To simply make emotional claims of love is not enough. There are measures for us to think about what our proximity is to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam measure your sujood measure your Salawat measure your character
and ask yourself what is my proximity to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all this companionship on the day of judgment and gentlemen for those who thought he was
Muslim in First off,
and hamdulillah salat wa salam ala rasulillah while early he alihi wa sahbihi women whether the brothers and sisters at this moment, over 51 charities are being investigated in France, seeking dissolution from the government 72 massage schools have been shut down right now are being declared enemy of the states in France starts off with a ban on hate jobs. It starts off with banning air that goes to banning Arabic in the Turkish language banning homeschools. Can you imagine the paranoia and the insecurity and the level of disgrace banning homeschool in France because God forbid Muslims teach their kids at home
and prevents us from assimilating them
because they are separatists. All of this culminates in so many different things. The collection somehow allowed the collection of millions of Muslims skulls and museums from the dirty colonial history of France and now seeking the humiliation of a people by by broadcasting these racist images. These disgraceful images of the prophets lie someone government buildings, it's not just it's not just a cartoon the way that they're putting it. This is meant to feed the subjugation of a people and to tell them that we have no regard for you whatsoever. And we should respond. How do we respond? We
respond. by rejecting the narrative we respond by rejecting the way that the Muslims are being scapegoated in France. Yes, we respond rejecting violence against innocent people and the carnage and chaos no matter what we don't honor the Prophet slice and then by dishonouring his way we respond the way the Prophet sighs I'm taught us to respond every single time. They seek to dishonor the Prophet sly some you know how we honor the Prophet slicin them best by teaching about him. And so yes, we're talking about the economic boycotts, and we're talking about calling upon the world to step in, to stop this fascism. This this element, this cycle, vicious cycle that we constantly see
in France and other places in the world, educate about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and educate first and foremost, by living the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam example, in your life. I want to end with just one thing.
Our love for the prophets lie, Selim is really big to some, it's strange to some, well, let me know I said, you have vanilla, those who believe they love a lot, and especially, and I'm not talking about people that cause Carnage, and, you know, give them the exact image that they want to subjugate further, because that's the idea of provocation, right? We want you to look like that in the image because this was the image that was used to colonize. You know, somehow I was listening to a social scientist just an hour ago. And he said, he said that the example of the image of the prophets lie some is the same example of white Jesus that was used to enslave us to subjugate, put
people down humiliate, we want you to submit. This is a different type of subjugation submission. So no, it's not that we're not going to become that but our love for the Prophet sighs I'm a special
and it's different. It has to be. And I wanted to just share with you
the saying of Ottawa bin Massoud, one of the Allahu anhu became Muslim Of course, after her they only went to her they BIA as a negotiator on the part of Quraysh. And he saw the way that the Muslims love the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he was blown away. Why? Because the prophets I send them was not earning his place amongst them. By subjugation. He was shy, so I said, I'm humble the poorest amongst them, the most humble amongst them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Can you hardly to know.
He would take things from Bedouins that the average Muslim could not take all types of things right. And it's a nomadic with the law and who gives you the image of the Prophet sighs I'm walking in the street one day, and he's not wearing anything special a man comes, starts tugging away at his at his at his garment Solari sentiments is our 20 minute talk a lot give me from what Allah gave you and the Prophet sighs I'm just takes off his shirt and gives it to him even though it leaves marks on his neck. He didn't command that place. With a palace. He didn't command it the way we see dictators do it around the world today put their pictures everywhere. You can't walk into a barber shop
without the face of a ruler in front of you to let you know, right who's in charge. He did none of them.
And you know what Robin Massoud said when he came back to Mecca, he said oh my people he said look, I've seen King's hospital kiss are the most pompous ruler in the earth of Persia. Caesar Najafi of Abba, Sr. I've seen all of these kings I have never seen a man so glorified by his people than Mohamed Salah Lahore, it was seldom, once he gives an order. They hasten to fulfill it. He does. And they fight them. They collect the water of his mobile when he speaks their voices are hushed. They lower his gaze in his presence out of reverence for himself. Not because he scares them, not because the prophets lie, some kind of booming voice, not because they fear to hit. That was the love that
the prophets lie some commanded from his followers by what his character, his position, and I end with what Bosworth Smith said he said he Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was Caesar and Pope and one but he was Pope without Pope's pretend Caesar without the legions of Caesar without a standing army, without a bodyguard without a palace without a fixed revenue. If ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by the right divine, it was Mohammed Salah lahardee was Salah, for he had all the power without its instruments and without its supports. What in neck Allah Allah hooligan Aleem he won their hearts sallallahu wasallam and we love him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for who he is to
Allah for who he is to us and has he was sent to us. We pray that Allah Subhana Allah find us worthy of being from his own and being amongst his neighbors and genitals for those alone I mean a lot of meaning or may not well Muslim in all Muslim acts.
