00:00:11--> 00:00:13

smilla hamdulillah

00:00:14--> 00:00:16

salatu salam ala rasulillah

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

when I saw the unforeseen illness a

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

woman you'll believe it Allah.

00:00:29--> 00:00:30

Allah, Allah,

00:00:31--> 00:00:32

Allah.

00:00:33--> 00:00:42

Muhammad Rasul Allah you have an effort. Hola como la oveja como el camino de como de matar

00:00:44--> 00:00:45

at Monza was

00:00:47--> 00:00:49

a mechanical robot, robotic.

00:00:50--> 00:00:52

And yet Gemma Ana de

00:00:53--> 00:00:54

la Vela.

00:00:55--> 00:01:46

I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala. To bless this gathering, they ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, as he has gathered us is here upon love to gather us in the company of the Prophet Mohammed is a Southern Gentleman, Shama and I, first of all I would like to apologize for there was few hiccups. With regard to this event, it was supposed to be a professional leadership event. So there were a few miscommunication with very sort of responsible brothers of this venue. So in childhood Tada, yes, it is now a free event. Those who have paid will get their refunds back inshallah, to Allah. And also, the initial talk was supposed to be tailored towards those who are professionals, managers, leaders,

00:01:46--> 00:01:56

so I'm going to change the talk a little bit in shallow data to make it more of a spiritual leadership talk in the last class, inshallah hutan.

00:01:57--> 00:01:58

leadership.

00:02:00--> 00:02:39

Leadership is made of towards leadership, a leader of the ship, and how it manifests carta in Oman. Oman, who was it? Who is the leader, a leader is someone who can impact others, someone who can impact others. And we look into the life of the Prophet Mohammed, as I said, I, for instance, and the life of the Sahaba, you know, and other leaders who had an impact on people. So a leader is somebody who can impact others. also someone who can drive people into a common goal.

00:02:40--> 00:02:57

Someone who can make people buy into a goal, let's say I have a goal. And I need people to follow me to buy into my goal so that we can all together work into the betterment of this common goal. This is what a leader really is a leader of a ship.

00:02:59--> 00:03:20

Someone with a vision. A leader is someone with a vision, and today, inshallah, I'm going to ask you some questions. I'm going to ask you some questions, and I do not expect you to give me answers. But I would expect you to go and think about these questions. And these questions will be mostly tailored towards the youth. And for me, all of you are youth.

00:03:21--> 00:03:26

Even those with gray hair, the cut costs and the touches and all of you are the youth.

00:03:27--> 00:03:30

So I'm going to ask you a question shala what

00:03:31--> 00:03:40

you think about this question, but first, I want to take some illustrations from some use some from some leaders who changed history.

00:03:41--> 00:03:51

I will take first of all the example. For instance, the example that too many examples that came to my mind right now, but I'm going to use the example for instance of a blog.

00:03:52--> 00:03:59

Let's use Ibrahim alexina, as the leader, but he was a leader. He was a young man, he was a young boy,

00:04:00--> 00:04:07

a young boy with a vision. What was his vision? He did not like the fact that his people were worshipping idols.

00:04:09--> 00:04:19

He managed to that he was raised in an environment whereby his father used to make articles.

00:04:20--> 00:04:27

His father used to make items for him and he said that he asked his mother

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

or mother, who is your Lord, she says, You're that.

00:04:34--> 00:04:37

And then he says, who's my dad's Lord, she says, and the mood

00:04:39--> 00:04:54

and he says, who's animals that she says, the God that your father is making in that environment? If he was raised, his father used to make these idols and they used to worship them. So he brought him as a vision.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

Just like the hood of a man who had a vision

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

Some halala

00:05:02--> 00:05:09

a bird, a tweeter had a vision. He had a mission. When he went flying into,

00:05:10--> 00:05:18

from from from where Sulaiman was all the way to Yemen, and he found some people worshipping the sun

00:05:19--> 00:05:20

was sent to her

00:05:22--> 00:05:33

daughter in law. He came back to school a man telling him I found a woman and her people worshipping the sun and Gunilla, they were prostrating to the sun.

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

Even sometimes animals can be leaders.

00:05:38--> 00:05:44

But we learn so many things. In fact, I learned so many things from this, from this from this trail from this bird.

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

He has a mission. In fact, he was supposed to be in this meeting with a man

00:05:51--> 00:06:06

but he took action. He was not reactive. He was proactive. He went on. He went to Yemen, he found these people worshipping the sun. And then he came back to Salina to tell him listen, there are some people who are worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:06:09--> 00:06:20

He was so protective jealousy that he had this bird he was jealous. How can these people worship something other than Allah subhana wa Tada. So

00:06:22--> 00:06:27

he found his people worshipping idols. So he went and he destroyed the idols.

00:06:29--> 00:06:45

When he does show the idols he loves an axe with their big one, the big one, they came back found in all the items being destroyed. And then they said, who destroyed our idols? Carlo Sameer in

00:06:47--> 00:06:47

your corner

00:06:49--> 00:06:50

who speaks Arabic?

00:06:55--> 00:06:55

But you

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

E sharp. He said Yeah.

00:07:11--> 00:07:19

We heard of a boy. We heard of a boy. He was not an old man. He was a boy. Oh boy by the name of people

00:07:21--> 00:07:22

that came by Hey,

00:07:23--> 00:07:41

did you destroy idols? He said, as the big one. As the biggest guy. You see, he's got the asphalt of the Apollo. And then they said what you know that they can't get him to see these idols can't hear no see. Then he goes back he says how can you

00:07:43--> 00:07:54

do all three, Your Worship? You are seeing yourselves you're admitting that you are worshiping people things that cannot hear nor see. And then what did they say? Look what they said they said how

how we call this what you learn here. Really what you have to learn

00:08:07--> 00:08:10

00:08:47--> 00:08:50

the angel who told him he ended up

00:08:51--> 00:09:06

getting any help. He says from you know but for Allah has to be alone when you're in Mega Wilkie. He had his trust on Allah subhana wa Tada. He put his trust on Allah subhana wa Tada. What did he say? He said has to be Allahu

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

Allah is sufficient for me.

00:09:12--> 00:09:21

This is the the aqeedah that we should build. as Muslims. Nobody can harm you. If Allah does not want to harm you, you shall not be harmed.

00:09:23--> 00:09:35

If Allah does not want to benefit you, you shall not be benefited. If the entire mankind from ancient g they get together to benefit you and Allah does not want to benefit you, you will not be benefited.

00:09:37--> 00:09:45

From a surgeon, they try to get together to harm you. But Allah does not want to harm you, you shall not be harmed.

00:09:46--> 00:09:48

You shall not be harmed.

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

Says has to be a key ally sufficient for me. He was totally to the fire later on. If I was asked this question he says Yeah, what was the sweetest

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

moment in your life.

00:10:02--> 00:10:06

What was the best days in your life? He says the time when I was thrown into the fire

00:10:09--> 00:10:13

has to be a lot when you're working alone is sufficient for me.

00:10:15--> 00:10:38

The flute can the beauty from Allah subhana wa tada saying, What is Allah said? Y'all know Cooney what Salah man oh fire be cool, be cool and peaceful on Ibrahim hut Allah subhana wa tada said on fire be on Ibrahim, Ibrahim.

00:10:40--> 00:10:40

Well Allah

00:10:41--> 00:10:47

but Allah says ya know, Connie Bowden was Solomon. We could and peaceful Ibrahim

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

did the fiber him?

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

Yeah,

00:10:55--> 00:10:56

I'm talking to you.

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

Yeah, why the fire didn't burn him.

00:11:04--> 00:11:08

Because the fire is a creation of Allah. It burns with the clear with the permission of Allah.

00:11:17--> 00:11:20

The fire can only burn with the permission of Allah.

00:11:21--> 00:11:28

So is the knife. It can only kill with the permission of Allah. The same thing happened.

00:11:36--> 00:11:42

Imagine imagine your dad is here. Okay? It's good that I can even

00:11:45--> 00:11:53

if let's say if your dad any further, any further here. You see a dream. Go and kill your son. What would you do

00:11:54--> 00:11:56

to build that battery?

00:11:57--> 00:11:58

nightmare.

00:12:00--> 00:12:01

Abraham saw dream.

00:12:02--> 00:12:05

Go and kill your son sacrifice your son killer.

00:12:08--> 00:12:12

vision of prophets is revelation.

00:12:13--> 00:12:18

prophets get revelation through dreams through gibreel two ways.

00:12:19--> 00:12:43

So when he saw a dream, that was a vision, Allah telling him to go and kill his son, Ibrahim Hassan Edison, who was a leader, and his trust in Allah was so strong that he did not question anything. So as his son, he had no questions. The father went to the son, he says, Son, I signed the dream die. So I'm sacrificing. The son says yeah.

00:12:44--> 00:12:45

Oh, Father, do as you

00:12:47--> 00:13:01

do as you were ordered. The son did not run to the mother. Say Mom, Dad has just gone crazy. He's so true to kidding me. Yeah, he went and he says oh Father do as you will

00:13:02--> 00:13:09

do as he will order so he took his son and then he went at the center of him that don't kill me like this.

00:13:12--> 00:13:19

Like this. You will look at me You may feel some pity for me. No, put my head down and slaughter me

00:13:21--> 00:13:25

so that you don't look at my eyes. I want you to fulfill the orders of Allah.

00:13:27--> 00:13:28

So he did

00:13:30--> 00:13:57

put his face down. He brought the knife. What is the characteristic of a knife? What can a knife do? A knife cuts and knife kills a knife chops and my dad thinks it the knife does not wanted came. The knife does not want to slaughter. In fact, the body moved, moved his hand he did try to start but the knife was ordered by Allah subhanho wa Taala of the slaughter.

00:13:58--> 00:14:08

Why? Why? Because the knife is also a condition of Allah. It can only kill with the permission of Allah. They understand. Okay.

00:14:10--> 00:14:12

So as the poison

00:14:15--> 00:14:22

as a lead, and I mentioned this a few times to some of my students the story of Carmen when he went

00:14:25--> 00:14:30

he got caught. And then we'll say my dad, the one who declared prophecy.

00:14:31--> 00:14:46

He got caught and then he found some poison in his head. He says What is this? He says this is poison. If I were to get caught, I'd rather eat it and die rather than go and be imprisoned. So hard It said, Do you think that this poison can kill?

00:14:47--> 00:14:48

You think that the poison can kill?

00:14:50--> 00:14:54

He took the possesses me show him give it to me, but smella and the agents

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

and the movies

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

00:15:21--> 00:15:24

00:15:26--> 00:15:33

you should put your trust in Allah. Allah told the life not to kill, the man did not kill, finish

00:15:34--> 00:15:40

the fire not to burn, the fire did not burn. The poison not to kill the poison did not kill

00:15:42--> 00:15:55

leaders with a vision, with the color of Allah with the feel of Allah with piety was righteousness who delegated first to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:57--> 00:15:59

another example look

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

This story was mentioned

00:16:05--> 00:16:06

in Sahih Muslim

00:16:07--> 00:16:10

and also mentioned in

00:16:11--> 00:16:12

in solid

00:16:13--> 00:16:14

bush

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

in Yemen, anybody from Yemen

00:16:21--> 00:16:22

00:16:24--> 00:16:26

money or money or Money Mafia money

00:16:28--> 00:16:32

by Hamas in you have a long time ago that was distinct

00:16:34--> 00:16:34

through the West,

00:16:36--> 00:16:38

00:16:46--> 00:16:46

Zhu

00:16:51--> 00:16:59

shadow shadow will teach you how to set pronounce it right, though with that. Not Not what does that mean? When I say good?

00:17:01--> 00:17:02

What was I saying?

00:17:04--> 00:17:10

This guy is man distinct in Yemen. He declared that he was got

00:17:11--> 00:17:24

long story. I'm going to shorten it for you and summarize it for you came a boy who learned about the hate of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This boy who learned about the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:17:26--> 00:17:51

So what did he do? He learned it through some sort of magician, another magician who was a priest, because the game sent him to learn about magic. But the boy on the way to the magician, he made this priest and these priests taught him the religion of the hate of the religion of the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala at the time. So the king found out about this boy.

00:17:54--> 00:18:13

And then he told him to denounce his religion. Book. He says, obioma My Lord is Allah. He asked him to denounce his religion. He says, I'm not enough in my religion. He threatened to kill you. He threatened to kill him. He says you can do whatever you want. I am not denouncing my religion of boy, Elisa. But

00:18:16--> 00:18:24

look what I can do, like I said in the video can have an effect or an impact on the entire nation or not even entire nation.

00:18:26--> 00:18:28

So as the Prophet Mohammed is upset,

00:18:31--> 00:18:41

they took the boy he says I'm going to kill you, he ordered his soldiers to take him into the sea and throw him into the middle of the sea. They went, tried to kill the boy. The boy said this.

00:18:43--> 00:18:44

Allahu mcsweeny

00:18:46--> 00:18:58

Allahu mcqueeney him or Allah, you take care of them in any way you wish to take care of these people in any way you wish, or a love you take care of them in any way you wish. Allah.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala says the boy and get all the ups. Now the boy who's a leader who's got a vision, he could have run away, but he came back to face the king because he's got a message to deliver to the king that you are not God, the God is Allah.

00:19:18--> 00:19:34

The system who impressed itself today, I pray to Him today. And I heard about the system who embraced Islam here today. And as soon as the share one thing in her Lama, she started crying. People who understand the meaning of La ilaha illAllah

00:19:36--> 00:19:41

when I was in the woods, with the added natali in the back of a condom

00:19:42--> 00:19:57

when the non Muslims when the they all gathered into confederations, and then they attacked the Muslims. They outnumbered and then they attacked the Muslims. And then came the idea of of digging the trench and come back. You people know what I'm talking about.

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

And then came in

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

One man by the name of Allah, who has a strong horse, he was able to transcend that trench. And then he went to the other side. And then he called for dude.

00:20:09--> 00:20:15

At the time without us before the war, they called for dudes who can face me.

00:20:18--> 00:20:23

Just like they did in bello. He called for dude. The Prophet says, Who can go for this guy?

00:20:26--> 00:20:28

Who can go he was eight years old.

00:20:29--> 00:20:32

An old man, but he was so tough.

00:20:33--> 00:20:34

People used to get scared of him.

00:20:35--> 00:20:38

Mothers, if the kids didn't want to go to sleep, they will say go to sleep.

00:20:42--> 00:20:47

He called who can face me the provinces who can go to the sky when

00:20:48--> 00:20:49

nobody wanted to go?

00:20:51--> 00:20:54

The tough sahabas were there. But nobody wanted to face this guy.

00:20:56--> 00:20:56

To the

00:20:58--> 00:21:00

provinces, they are not you.

00:21:03--> 00:21:04

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

I guarantee you should never

00:21:11--> 00:21:13

guarantee who can go to this guy.

00:21:14--> 00:21:18

Nobody stood up except the second time stood up. The Prophet told him sit down.

00:21:21--> 00:21:27

For the third time the provinces man Yahushua. Who can go to this guy Shanna is guaranteed.

00:21:29--> 00:21:30

Nobody stood up again.

00:21:33--> 00:21:36

It Yeah. He would kill you.

00:21:37--> 00:21:39

It says there was Obama, I shall kill him.

00:21:41--> 00:21:44

He goes profit made for him. And he went.

00:21:45--> 00:21:55

And then now they're talking him and I'm over the woods. They could not recognize one another because they were waiting all the sheets and stuff. The man says Who are you? He says I? I do.

00:21:56--> 00:22:02

00:22:13--> 00:22:17

The man said Well, I will not say even if I see myself in college.

00:22:18--> 00:22:22

If I see myself in the depth of Johanna, I would not say that in the high level.

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

It means people

00:22:29--> 00:22:36

00:22:38--> 00:22:44

the natural inclination kicked in la isla is to worship Allah.

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

He says

00:22:48--> 00:22:54

he won't be able to kill me. I'm going back to the story of the kid. He says you won't be able to kill me.

00:22:56--> 00:23:07

Did he religious is not nothing else in my religion. Then he took his soldiers go get rid of this guy, take him to the top of the mountain to him from there. They took him to the top of the mountain. As soon as they wanted to throw him the kid says

00:23:10--> 00:23:14

one more time. You take care of them in any way you wish.

00:23:15--> 00:23:54

Everybody died except the boy one more time he said he could have run away he could have changed, towns changed you know went away but he chose to come back and face the king because he was leader who has a mission to deliver or a message to deliver. He did not refer to himself. Leaders normally for themselves.

00:24:00--> 00:24:02

He told him you won't be able to kill me.

00:24:03--> 00:24:07

The only way you'll be able to kill me is if you position me by a tree

00:24:09--> 00:24:12
