00:00:45--> 00:00:59

People sacrifice things when people sacrifice everything for the religion, what have you done? What have you sacrificed? And the Prophet Muhammad Ali so to say when he says in the holiday reported by Tom Bharani, underrated by semi me daddy de la la

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

la vida De

00:01:03--> 00:01:30

De De De De the Prophet Mohammed Salah ism says that this religion of any stamp will reach the four corners of the world, Islam will reach the four corners of the world, there will not be one single house anywhere in the world that has not heard of is that is that is moving east armies on their goal is Tommy's on that goal. The fastest growing religion, according to the statistics is Islam will lie. This is the statistics not done by Muslims. By the way.

00:01:31--> 00:01:51

non Muslims have done statistics, the fastest growing religion, Islam. And the surprising thing is the ratio of people embracing Islam of four to one every, every, every, every person that embraces Islam, yeah, and a four to one meaning for the woman for every man.

00:01:54--> 00:02:02

The people are embracing Islam for a woman to every man, which means that more women embracing the standard men of luck along with

00:02:04--> 00:02:45

him. So this religion is moving. The question now is, what is your role? the caravan is moving into your jump and you serve on your head or you're going to be left out in the back. You're going to be left out really. So either you move on and jump and participate and pitching and earn and benefit or you can stay back you're gonna stay back. So do something for Allah subhanho wa Taala. Do something for this type of thinking shallow. Whatever you can do, just don't stand still. Don't stand still the SS do something. The least. Be proud of your name. Be proud of your identity. Be proud of you of your of your culture. Be proud that you're Norwegian, but you're the Muslim Malaysian. You're the

00:02:45--> 00:02:53

Muslim, Moroccan, Norwegian. You're the Muslim, a Somali, Norwegian, you're the Muslim, Pakistani, Norwegian, whatever it is.

00:02:54--> 00:02:58

Whatever it is, Are you proud that you're most dads?

00:02:59--> 00:03:01

Brothers? Are you proud that you're Muslims?

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

Are you really proud?

00:03:48--> 00:03:50

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah.

00:03:52--> 00:04:07

Now, the topic that we'll be talking about today is very, very important topic. And in fact, it's something that is geared towards not only the youth, although for me, all of you are youth.

00:04:08--> 00:04:20

Even those with gray beard like myself, all of you are the youngsters. The the legacy, what have you done for Islam lately?

00:04:21--> 00:04:23

Not what have you done for me lately?

00:04:25--> 00:04:33

What have you done for Islam lately? What is your legacy? What is your message in life? Or what is your vision?

00:04:34--> 00:04:50

In fact, you know, I may have mentioned this sometime back when I was in the US going to school, I was in the University of San Francisco and then a a teacher of the I was taking this psychological course its course about psychology. And then the teacher at the very end of the class, he says,

00:04:51--> 00:04:54

What would you like people to say about you after you die?

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

What would you like people to say about you after you die? And that's how

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

How he ended the lecture. He just kept that question sort of like at the very end of the course, what would you like people to say about you after you die? And that was like 20 years back, I still live with that question, what is my legacy? What do I want people to say about me after I die? How do I want to be remembered? How do you want to be remembered?

00:05:25--> 00:06:03

Some of us will leave a legacy behind them, and some of us will not be remembered, some of us will come and go and when their name is mentioned, nobody will remember them or nobody will even know them people will not be making the algorithm because they did not leave anything behind them, but others, others will have done something for this them will have done something for the society will have done something for the community, who have done something for Norway will have done something for Sweden will have done something for Oslo who have done something for Muslims and non Muslims alike. Whenever the names are remembered. People would be making to Africa, Muslims, people would be

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

saying May Allah reward them. People would be praying for those who have initiated Islam net. Because these people I was thinking she initiated Islam, not today, tomorrow, Debbie's dawn, but they have left a legacy behind them. Maybe the day when Allah subhana wa tada when asked the companions, what have you done for this lamb? The companion would say Allah, here is my ear. Here is my nose. Here is my neck all been chopped up for your sake. I have done something for this lamb. I struggled and I strived for Islam. You What would you say when you stand before Allah and Allah who was to ask you, what have you done for my Deen? You would say, Oh, God, I prayed. Allah would say

00:06:50--> 00:06:53

your prayer is for you. But what have you done for Islam?

00:06:55--> 00:07:25

What have you done for Islam? And that is the question. This is why the Prophet Mohammed Ali said to slim us to attribute lots of importance to the youth, the carriers of the flag of law in the us when we talk about the Sahaba By the way, my brothers and sisters, we tend to think that they were all elders. In fact, today, I would have a message for the youth. I want to have a message for the our uncles and fathers and mothers and I want to have a special message for the sisters.

00:07:27--> 00:07:28

Yeah.

00:07:31--> 00:07:38

A very special metal light coming from the bottom of my hearts. And you will see sisters Today I'm going to make You're so happy

00:07:39--> 00:07:42

that you would wish you'd have wings to fly off of happiness.

00:07:44--> 00:07:47

Know the message is not that I found that husband for you.

00:07:49--> 00:07:57

I have something better than that. I'm going to show you your value, your value, your true value.

00:07:58--> 00:08:17

Yes, when the show you when the scholars they tend to talk about Islam, they usually mentioned companions, or they usually mentioned Prophet Mohammed is a slim, but very few of us tend to mention that these are hobbies that these companions are nothing but a product of women.

00:08:19--> 00:08:27

They are product of women who has raised them who have raised lions and tigers and lioness

00:08:32--> 00:08:37

Let me tell you a few stories. And I love to mention stories.

00:08:38--> 00:08:44

Let me start with In fact, you know, just to put things into perspective, when we talk about it.

00:08:45--> 00:08:54

Man, you know, the first thing you let's picture you know, although maybe it's the wrong thing to say. But if I if I hear it.

00:08:56--> 00:09:11

Well, I hear what I hear a fan for the first time I hear them, I may visualize them as an older man with maybe some some turban with maybe a long white beard. In fact it when he embraces them he was only 10 years old.

00:09:14--> 00:09:17

2627 so was

00:09:18--> 00:09:19

less than 40.

00:09:21--> 00:09:24

Youngsters, the very first ambassador to Islam

00:09:27--> 00:09:28

20 years old

00:09:29--> 00:09:30

youngsters

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

well as in others

00:09:34--> 00:09:59

very, very youngsters. This is why the Prophet used to attribute lots of importance to the youth. He understood what the youth can do. And he sat with them. So he spoke, he spoke their language is spoken language that is understood by the youth that is understood by ankles by mothers by fathers by the elders. Everybody was able to understand the Prophet Mohammed Allah Sato Salah.

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

Osama bin Hussein,

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

he led an army

00:10:09--> 00:10:20

in the army was Abubakar in the army was drama in the army was the man in the army was carted, how old was Osama bin Jose? He was 17 years old

00:10:24--> 00:10:26

youngsters yet lines.

00:10:28--> 00:10:29

There was a man.

00:10:31--> 00:10:34

There was a man by the name of the baby

00:10:35--> 00:10:40

in this battle called the Battle of qadisiya, between the Muslims and the Persians,

00:10:42--> 00:10:51

the middle of the Persians, the outnumbered the Muslims, the Persians were about 200,000 or 280,000, the Muslims were about 20,000

00:10:54--> 00:11:09

subs who constantly leader of the army, he had to send someone to negotiate some terms with the Persian army. So who did he said he sent a youngster by the name of Obi, who was about 20 something years old. So he goes

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

in his donkey,

00:11:14--> 00:11:17

he's walking with his donkey. You know,

00:11:18--> 00:11:39

those of you who are friends, have you read donkeys before is for the donkey to go and show the donkey to start. So he kept on saying, you know, and then he moved, he entered the palace of little stone, the big guy, you know, the leader of the Persian army with all his all all the the soldiers and whatnot, and he comes

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

on his donkey.

00:11:43--> 00:11:56

And then he goes in, this guy wants to provoke him. This guy wants to provoke him, but he had a vision. He's not there to be provoked. And he's not there to be bought. Let me repeat, he was not there to be bought.

00:11:58--> 00:12:00

At the very least, I'm told him Malecon

00:12:02--> 00:12:21

Oh, what's wrong with you? You're out of what's up with you, Adam, we know you as the low civilization compared to the to the Romans compared to the Greek compared to the Indian civilizations. What brought your Adam's you a bunch of, of shepherds in the desert. Luke is trying to provoke him, insult him, your Adam's or

00:12:23--> 00:12:35

your Adam's art. And he's talking about items. We were a bunch of shepherds. What brought you here? He says you're right. We were a bunch of shepherds. But it's

00:12:36--> 00:12:38

not a bad mean a bad, a bad.

00:12:39--> 00:12:59

A bad but Allah has sent us out to bring people out from worshipping people to worshiping Allah to bring people out from the tightness of this dunya. to the to the vet this vastness of the Akela to bring people out from the atrocities and injustice of other religions, to the justice of Islam. This is what we hear

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

these what we here.

00:13:03--> 00:13:09

Look at him, this little boy, about 20 something years old, talking to the greatest king of the time,

00:13:11--> 00:13:27

or the leader of the time, but he had a vision, a youngster, yes, he left a legacy. Yes, he left a legacy behind him. So as another man, so many man's I'm going to just mention a few illustrations on other men, by the name of Buddha.

00:13:28--> 00:13:47

Buddha from my brothers and sisters, he was taught as a prisoner of war by the Romans, though the Romans. So they caught him listen to the story, because a lot of us youth can relate to this story. He was a young man. He was the leader of a small army, he got caught as a prisoner of war. So

00:13:49--> 00:13:53

the leader of the Romans came and told him listen, I can set you free.

00:13:54--> 00:14:01

I can set you free. Just leave your religion and then we sit you're free. He says, my religion

00:14:02--> 00:14:19

I will not denounce my religion. And I said, told him if you if you denounce your religion, I would split my kingdom with you can ruin half of my kingdom and you can ruin the other half of my kingdom. You become the other king of Rome.

00:14:21--> 00:14:33

He told him no By Allah, I would never never denounce my religion, even if you're to give me the entire word that whatever it contains, I will not denounce my religion. Then the king says I will kill you.

00:14:36--> 00:14:39

Abdullah says Do as you wish.

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

Holla Holla Holla Holla Do as you wish.

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

So they brought in this this big Besson container of very very hot water. And then they brought one of his friends that worked with him. before his eyes, they brought him or they they throw him into that basket of very hot water.

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

before his eyes, he could see his brother died, the bones coming up to the surface.

00:15:06--> 00:15:12

And then they started bringing him to throw him as well. His eyes teared, he cried.

00:15:13--> 00:15:17

They talk based on his crying. Maybe he's scared. Maybe now he can denounce his religion.

00:15:19--> 00:15:46

They brought him pesos told him, are you ready to the national religion? He says no way Allah, we're not really that's my religion. He says, Then why are you crying? He says I was crying because it's only one soul that would die for the sake of Allah is only one soul. I only have one soul that will die for the sake of Allah. I wish. I wish I had as many souls as the number of hair in my head to die on for the sake of Allah, one after the other.

00:15:48--> 00:15:56

It is only one death. It is only one soul. But I wish I had too many souls to die for the sake of Allah. No, I will not do that. So my religion.

00:15:58--> 00:16:08

Then the king says there is no need for us or no point for us to kill this guy. What should we do? What should we do? Oh, they found a very good thing to do.

00:16:09--> 00:16:20

They thought that this guy who is a young man full of energy away from his wife for a long time, the only way maybe to get him to come out is to seduce her.

00:16:21--> 00:16:23

Now I'm talking your language.

00:16:25--> 00:16:27

Try to seduce him. So what did they do?

00:16:29--> 00:16:49

They jailed him. And they went to one of the most beautiful girls of the town to be lovers of a prostitute and they told her Listen, the only thing that you need that we need from you is not for him to commit adultery. No, no, we don't want that. Just Just a kiss. Just a kiss. So she goes.

00:16:54--> 00:16:55

So she goes

00:16:57--> 00:17:05

into his cell or whatever it's called. She enters. And well, yeah. She and dressed herself.

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

She took off her clothes.

00:17:10--> 00:17:14

And she goes in, what does he do? Ah, brothers.

00:17:15--> 00:17:16

What does he do?

00:17:21--> 00:17:22

What does he do? Really?

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

00:17:29--> 00:17:34

He covers his eyes. And then she goes to him. She goes to him, what does he do?

00:17:35--> 00:17:36

00:17:42--> 00:17:45

and then he runs away law? What does he say?

00:17:46--> 00:18:07

Well, he happens to have handled Kingdom something similar to this happened in the US in one of the dorms in the US. You know, there was this Muslim guy in the dorms what was true, it was in the news, you know, Muslim guy in the dorms and and he does not pay attention to these girls. And you know, a girl buttons, you know, a girl if you don't, if you don't sort of pay attention to her, man, she becomes so mad.

00:18:08--> 00:18:10

why he's not looking at me.

00:18:11--> 00:18:49

He has to look. And the guy he you know, every time he passes by, what he covers his eye and he lowers his gaze. And the girls know he has to look. They kept online all the things all the tie and whatever it's called what I don't know. I don't know. Don't ask me. You know, so and then the guy he is just ignoring them is not looking at them.

They gave him his justice they gave him right. But anyways, this guy What happened? He's covering his eyes, his journey and discussions running after him. Just like who another story is something similar to this.

00:20:19--> 00:20:25

And he after she beautified herself and everything she came into use of, and then she locked the doors.

00:20:26--> 00:20:27

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

Something like that. I don't know.

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

Hey Tilak

00:21:08--> 00:21:26

lobby. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, I'm not gonna fall into this. I'm not gonna fall into this trap. So this guy is the same thing is running away from her running away from her running. She's right. He's running, right? She's running right? He's running down to the runner. Leave me alone. And he's not looking at her. He's like, imagine he's on it because she's all naked men. Don't imagine this guy's

00:21:28--> 00:21:39

just running away running away. But she kept on running around running around in this room. And then she felt so tired. She came up the gods were waiting for her outside. They said, Yeah, tell us did he do it either way.

00:21:41--> 00:21:45

She says by Allah. I don't know, whether I'm a man or a woman.

00:21:47--> 00:21:50

She says in de la isla de

00:21:52--> 00:21:53

la vaca.

00:21:57--> 00:21:57

Hassan.

00:21:59--> 00:22:02

She says, I don't know whether this guy is a man or a rock.

00:22:03--> 00:22:18

Or a rock. What is this guy with a Norwegian? I'm a man of the woman. She forgot herself. Yeah. And he she failed. Chip failed. So they thought of something else? What should we do to this guy? We have to break him. We have to break him. What should we do?

00:22:20--> 00:22:24

So they thought of another thing? starve him. They start with him.

00:22:25--> 00:22:30

They started fine. And then they brought him some wine and some

00:22:31--> 00:22:33

some some some pork.

00:22:35--> 00:22:36

And he did not eat.

00:22:38--> 00:23:03

He is able and he is allowed in these circumstances is allowed to eat pork and to drink wine. Because he's gonna die. The guy is starving to death. Yet he chose not to. They came to him and they said, we know in your religion under such circumstances you can you're allowed to eat, you're allowed to drink? He says Yes, I know. But I don't know what he says. I do not want people like you to ridicule the Muslims.

00:23:05--> 00:23:09

I don't want people like you to ridicule the Muslims. I'm going to eat I'd rather die.

00:23:11--> 00:23:19

Holla Holla Holla Holla. So the king called him He says, You know what? You know what? I'm gonna set you free.

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

Under one condition. Just kiss my forehead.

00:23:25--> 00:23:56

For the Arabs, they understand what that means. The jalapeno and the culture is like when you when you kiss somebody's forehead, okay? This is a very the utmost respect. You can pay to that person. So the guy says, huh, not for me. You set me free and you set my brother's free. Those who are with me, because they did not live alone. They lived for one another. Here's another message. They live to one another. They did not live alone. You don't set me free me and those who are with me. The man says the king says I set your free and your brother's free just kissed my forehead.

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

So he thought to himself, I go along.

00:24:03--> 00:24:08

I do a lot in Viva La kiss his head and he will set me free and my brain is free.

00:24:09--> 00:24:14

I will do it. This one narration that says he went and instead of kissing his forehead.

00:24:17--> 00:24:45

Anyways, he got free. This is how it happened in the era of HIPAA. Some Muslims are not happy. They want to have to complain. This man you know he's with us. And then he went and he kissed the forehead of of Kaiser. It's not been fitted. When I've heard the story. He came down and he hugged that man and he kissed his forehead. He said it is a must on all the Muslims here today to come and kiss this man's forehead. He left a legacy. His name is Abdullah Magno.

00:24:49--> 00:24:50

Man

00:24:52--> 00:24:57

very well known man at the time of the Prophet Mohammed. I just sit down who knows this man?

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

What was he

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Who was he?

00:25:03--> 00:25:03

Who was he?

00:25:05--> 00:25:19

He was what was he? What was he? He was blind. This Listen, he was blind. This is a lesson for those who say, I have an excuse. Look at this man. Your mistake, excuse me.

00:25:20--> 00:25:30

This man is blind. He went into the Battle of battle. He says, He says, Listen, listen, he says, He says, I'm blind. Give me the flag.

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

Are you blind, go back home and

00:25:34--> 00:25:46

00:26:02--> 00:26:04

Morocco. For the Aloha.

00:26:08--> 00:26:10

How about women?

00:26:12--> 00:26:16

When we talk about the about men and what they have done,

00:26:17--> 00:26:18

how about women?

00:26:19--> 00:26:30

Well done Allah subhana wa tada in the end, says kwentong hydrometallurgy cleaness kwentong hydrometeorological.

00:26:32--> 00:26:32

Doesn't

00:26:34--> 00:26:55

say you weren't the best nation that came out to mankind. You he says you were the best nation that came out to mankind you does not single only out men you compress or comprises of men and women, Islam. Islam came with the sacrifice of both men and women control.

00:26:57--> 00:26:59

You are the best nation that came out to mankind.

00:27:02--> 00:27:19

You enjoin good and forbid evil. So sisters, when you ask yourself this question as to what's my role? What's my role as a woman? Is my role sisters, I'm gonna ask you this question and tell me yes or no. is your role to just get married?

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

No, I'm not done.

00:27:24--> 00:27:42

Is your role just to get married and make babies and when your husband comes from work, you wash his feet. And you make food for him and you feed him? And you singly lullaby for him before he goes to sleep and give him massage? And attach?

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

Yes,

00:27:46--> 00:28:33

of course. Yeah, it was. Yeah, no, no, no, no, I don't mean to insult your stuff for the law amongst you. You as my mother, you are my my wife and my daughter. And my auntie you are some people they say that women are half of the society. It's wrong. Women are the entire society. Imagine if all the schools in Oslo were to close down if all the clue if schools were to shut down, what's going to happen to our youth? What's gonna happen, more crimes, more problems, but everything in Norway, if a woman closes down if she shuts down because there are schools from that school, people like oh man, like man like father, mother, Khadija you produce these people, sisters and brothers. So do not be

00:28:33--> 00:28:41

or misunderstand your role as a woman in Islam. I'm going to give you some illustrations of course, some examples of course sisters.

00:28:45--> 00:28:46

In Aloha,

00:28:47--> 00:28:50

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, In nama hotspot,

00:28:54--> 00:28:59

a BA he was in Milan, Allah Danny.

00:29:01--> 00:29:07

Allah has favored Adam and Noah and the family of Ibrahim Pasha

00:29:09--> 00:29:28

and the family of Milan, I'm going to talk about this woman, this woman, Allah alameen upon mankind, Allah favored him and I'm gonna concentrate on the family on the wife of Milan. What what this woman is so special. Give me this.

00:29:33--> 00:29:39

What made what made this woman so special that Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:29:40--> 00:29:46

there is a there is a a chapter in the Quran called as a man

00:29:48--> 00:29:56

and a man we have a woman, these ladies these brothers, this is amazing. This is amazing. Look, this woman, she's older.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

She's over 70 years old, yet

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala chose her selected her favorite her Why? Why what listen to this, listen to this, you know 70 odd years old and then she wants to have a baby

00:30:14--> 00:30:15

excuse me

00:30:16--> 00:30:20

she's old man. She was a baby now she wants to Part A

00:30:21--> 00:30:22

Lana.

00:30:23--> 00:30:27

You're wrong you crazy minded people already thinking.

00:30:29--> 00:30:46

She is Look, look, she wants to cause a change. She wants to cause a change. So now what happened? She wants to do something no woman has done before her. What she wants to dedicate what's on her womb for the service of God.

00:30:48--> 00:30:56

She wants to do something no other woman has done sister. Let me ask you another question. Any sisters? Who Who Who is pregnant here?

00:30:57--> 00:31:10

Pregnant sisters are right. Mashallah. So we do have some pregnant sisters. inshallah Allah wants to get your baby. Have you ever seen a woman delivering the baby? And after that woman delivers the baby, she cries? The baby

00:31:13--> 00:31:18

Have you ever seen a woman after she delivers a Baby? Baby and this baby

00:31:19--> 00:31:20

like the baby

00:31:23--> 00:31:36

this woman was not happy. So behind her carry? Yeah, she was surprised she wanted the baby so that that baby can change history. So what did she do? Allah subhana wa tada says that in the Quran

00:31:38--> 00:31:43

or be in the Murphy but the Mahara for the couple Meenie

00:31:44--> 00:32:01

Miny Nikita seminarian, Oh Allah, I have dedicated what's in my wound for you for your service. Oh Allah except from me. She is a woman. She's thinking that that change can only be caused by men. So now what happened for our daughter?

00:32:07--> 00:32:22

She She gave birth to a woman. She gave birth to a woman and then and to girl young woman. She gave birth to a girl. And then she says, Oh god, she's a girl. She's a girl. She's, she's not really happy. Oh, God.

00:32:24--> 00:33:07

Gave me a girl. One low and then we'll be mobile dot and Allah. Allah has known Allah subhanho wa Taala. He has blessed her with so so for her. She's a very, very, very, very, very yummy sacred woman. And she needs another sacred woman that will give birth to another sacred man. So she we need a very sacred woman, a very special woman to give birth to this special man by the name of Jesus. Because 300 years later, 300 years later, after the death of Jesus, the Romans who are at the time, they will all embrace the religion of Christianity.

00:33:09--> 00:33:27

Because this woman sisters, she taught, she thought that change can only happen with with men. So Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to prove her wrong, that change can not only happen with men, that change can also happen with men.

00:33:30--> 00:33:31

Yes, or Yes.

00:33:33--> 00:33:57

Change can also happen Look, the example of this woman and a man, the feminine of Milan, you know, when she had this baby, she's not um, she became pregnant and she became pregnant because not because of, you know, pleasure. I told her she's older. She's old. She's over 70 years old, but she wants to be pregnant. She wants to deliver the baby so that that baby can cause some Renaissance some change. But when she gave birth, she gives her to marry.

00:33:58--> 00:34:03

She gave her to marry. And then she said, Oh God, you gave me a girl.

00:34:05--> 00:34:08

But from that girl, Jesus will come peace be upon him.

00:34:09--> 00:34:12

She was a very, very special woman.

00:34:14--> 00:34:22

Another special woman brothers and sisters. Is Khadija the wife of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Khadija

00:34:24--> 00:34:25

had deja deja

00:34:29--> 00:34:32

the most beautiful love story of all time.

00:34:34--> 00:34:43

The most beautiful love story of all time is the story of the Prophet Mohammed with Khadija his wife. Brothers here. Those who are married, raise your hands.

00:34:45--> 00:34:46

Raise your hands.

00:34:47--> 00:34:49

I want to ask you a question. Raise your hands.

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

Brothers were married. Leave your hands up. Yeah, I'm gonna ask you a question. And Allah is watching you. Right. Don't lie.

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

Do not lie is your wife, your best friend.

00:35:04--> 00:35:10

If your wife is your best friend, let your hand up. If your wife is not your best friend to this,

00:35:12--> 00:35:13

allies watching you don't lie.

00:35:15--> 00:35:16

Not because your wife is here

00:35:19--> 00:35:23

is your wife, your best friend. She's your best friend until your wife is your best friend.

00:35:30--> 00:35:50

Here's Buffett Muhammad Ali is salat wa salam in this case. Today, Prophet Mohammed is 40 years old. Imagine with me, Prophet today is 40 years old. He is in this cave. All of a sudden some person comes to him and hugs him very, very tight. hugs him very, very tight.

00:35:53--> 00:36:20

And he tells him to read. Prophet Mohammed says, I don't know what to read, or I don't know how to read. And then the men, again hogs in very, very, very tight until the Prophet conry. And the Prophet and the mental didn't read the provinces. I don't know how to read. And then he hugs him again so that he could not breathe. And he told him read the premises. I do not know how to read the ad for the fourth time he hugs him so much that it is him read, and then the Prophet is what should I read?

00:36:21--> 00:36:34

And then the man says, Cora, Allah reveals Bismillah piccola de hallak, the prophet, imagine now he's sitting by himself in this cave, all of a sudden some guy comes in from nowhere from nowhere,

00:36:35--> 00:37:12

and he comes in, he hugs him and he tells him read. And then the Prophet is really scared, is really terrified. He goes down running, running, you know, this, this mount, this mount, I don't know some of you may have been in Mecca. This mount, it takes about two hours to work from the bottom to the top, it takes about two hours. Here's the profit running down, running down, he goes, he goes home, he goes to his best friend, he goes to his best friend, he goes to his mate, he goes to his companion, he goes to his soulmate, he goes to his wife, and he tells her, cover me cover me cover me. And then the wife, now comes the job over the wife. Now comes the job of the wife. He is a

00:37:12--> 00:37:45

prophet. He is a prophet, yet he is scared. So she comes, she comforts him. She he tells her the story, he tells the story so so to comfort him, what does she say? She says, No, no, do not be scared. Allah will never let you down. You're a good man. You're this. She started lifting him up. She started empowering him. She started giving him and talking about his qualities, the job of a woman. Imagine, imagine if she was to tell him, I told you and you never listened to me.

00:37:46--> 00:37:54

I told you don't go to that cave. You went to that cave so many times. And I kept on bringing food to you.

00:37:55--> 00:38:02

She used to go and bring food to the Prophet Mohammed. She used to walk up every day. Imagine a woman she used to walk up every day.

00:38:03--> 00:38:23

Every day for two hours bringing food to the Prophet. She never told him what you're doing hitting escape alone. And I need help with your kids. I need some help with you. You live in me alone. She never complained. She when the Prophet came to her. She didn't say ha ha I told you, huh? Okay, now you take it now. I think you're possessed.

00:38:25--> 00:38:43

My other law She didn't say that. Why? Because I'm saying this because some women This is what happens. Okay. When your husband comes to you in some help, I didn't hit him on the head. He would never come back to your sister. He will never come in and an empty his heart to you. Because every time he comes, you know, you just argue and whatnot.

00:38:45--> 00:39:25

And then what happened? Not only that she took him to her ankle. Not only that she used to protect him. She used to preserve him. She used to help interest in assisting and at night she hired people to go with him to protect him on the lawn. In the shop in the siege of the new shop when they put the profit in the Muslims for three years. Three years. hungry. Hungry. Three years. I had Isha college came to her. They told her you're fine. You can go back home. You can go back home. Oh, Khadija, this is not for you. She says that. She says no, my husband stays. I stayed if my husband go, I will go she was feeding she used to stay hungry. And she used to feed the Muslims.

00:39:26--> 00:39:29

She stayed hungry herself and she would feed the Muslims.

00:39:30--> 00:40:00

So much so that the angel came down before her death, the angel came down before her death to convey the salary of a lot to her to convey the salary of Allah to her. When it came down to tell her Allah and God are conveying that Salim to you. The Prophet is saying all Khadija she believes he is conveying the setup from Allah to you. And then she says, How should I reply Salaam back to Allah. If Allah tells me Salam aleikum Hi.

00:40:00--> 00:40:47

shall they place them back to Allah? Then the Prophet told her say Aloma to sit him woman Casa de Bella. Monica. And not only that, she became to convert center from Allah and to give her the glad tidings of a house in Jana of a house of a mention in heaven from gold and Pearl. She deserves it. She deserves it. She stood behind the Prophet Mohammed Ali salatu salam, what a great woman she was. What an amazing woman she was her Isha, the other great woman she lives with the Prophet nine years when the Prophet died. She was 18 years old, one fourth of our Islam of our Sharia was narrated by Irish alone. one fourth of our routines of our Islamic Sharia was narrated by Shalom, so don't send

The people are embracing this time for women to every man, which means that more women embracing this time than men of luck alone.
