Ibrahim in

prospective listeners salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

As believers,

00:00:59--> 00:01:04

and as members of the Mahabharata, sobre, La Silla Lahore, it was suddenly

00:01:07--> 00:01:13

we have a certain relationship with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam.

00:01:16--> 00:01:17

In fact,

00:01:18--> 00:01:21

our lives are often governed

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

by relationships

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

filled with relationships.

00:01:32--> 00:01:33

We have

00:01:34--> 00:01:42

relationships with family members, parents, children, siblings,

00:01:43--> 00:01:44

relatives,

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

neighbors, colleagues,

00:01:50--> 00:01:55

people that we meet on a regular basis, even though they may not be

00:01:56--> 00:02:02

neighbors or family members, we have relationships with friends,

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

acquaintances,

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

employers employees,

00:02:12--> 00:02:16

so our lives are filled with relationships. And

00:02:18--> 00:02:27

in fact, the course of our lives is often determined and regulated by the number and kind of nature of relationships we have.

00:02:29--> 00:02:34

And one of the most important relationships is that between husband and wife

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

but moving beyond these relationships,

00:02:41--> 00:02:47

we need to understand that we also have a relationship with Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:49--> 00:03:02

When we study our relationships, not between the creation and the creator and the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his oma. But the previous relationships I've just spoken of.

00:03:04--> 00:03:09

In all of these relationships, they are obligations and duties,

00:03:10--> 00:03:11

and rights,

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

and reciprocal behavior.

00:03:18--> 00:03:28

Whether it's a relationship between friends, colleagues, acquaintances, families, family members, employee, employee, husband and wife.

00:03:30--> 00:03:40

Both sides have obligations and duties towards the other, and both have rights and claims over the earth.

00:03:44--> 00:04:09

And such relationships only survive and only work if that is reciprocal behavior. When both sides fulfill their part of the bar, when both sides fulfill their duties and responsibilities and obligations towards the other. When both sides when both parties honor the other.

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

There is no relationship in the world

00:04:13--> 00:04:24

whereby one party has all the obligations, duties and responsibilities and is expected to fulfill them.

00:04:25--> 00:04:34

And the other party has no responsibility or maybe there are responsibilities but fails to fulfill them and yet

00:04:35--> 00:04:36

expects

00:04:38--> 00:04:49

all of their own rights to be honored and observed. There is no such relationship in the world. Not one sided relationship. People may try but they can never succeed.

00:04:53--> 00:04:58

Now we have a relationship with Allah and with the messenger subtle allottee

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

Even with a law,

00:05:04--> 00:05:13

there is a unique relationship between the creation and the Create. And both actually have responsibilities and duties towards each other.

00:05:16--> 00:05:31

And each one has a claim and a right over the other, the sort of loss of the lahardee, who seldom went as far as saying that Allah has rights over his creation, and allows creation has rights over the Create.

00:05:32--> 00:05:36

Allah sustains them, law provides for

00:05:37--> 00:05:38

a law cares has

00:05:39--> 00:05:45

an in return in new, they have a duty to worship none but

00:05:47--> 00:05:53

their duty and obligation towards ally is that though he'd Eber

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

and his GT is a risk

00:05:59--> 00:06:01

and care and provision.

00:06:02--> 00:06:09

Similarly, we have a relationship with the Messenger of Allah, Allah Hardy, who was one of them, and in that relationship,

00:06:10--> 00:06:14

we have duties, obligations and responsibilities towards him.

00:06:16--> 00:06:23

And he has certain rights over us. Now we expect so much for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu today

00:06:27--> 00:06:31

we want the honor of belonging to his

00:06:34--> 00:06:35

we have hope,

00:06:36--> 00:06:37

that

00:06:38--> 00:06:54

by virtue of being one of the members of his own, on the day of reckoning, we shall attain salvation, he will intercede on our behalf, he will pray for us, we will go into following

00:06:58--> 00:07:03

In fact, this is a very common belief, but just by

00:07:05--> 00:07:07

being members of his own,

00:07:08--> 00:07:13

just by being followers of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:07:15--> 00:07:21

his though his shofar is in session, his prayer, his supplication

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

all of this will be sufficient for us.

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

And

00:07:31--> 00:07:33

in Islam, historically,

00:07:35--> 00:07:38

theologically, there has actually been a belief.

00:07:42--> 00:07:55

And practically there has always been this belief meaning Let me speak about practice first, in practical terms, in terms of practice, many have always acted as though

00:07:57--> 00:08:06

Yes, in principle, they accept that we have to pray fast observe

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

religious law,

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

behave in a certain way.

00:08:12--> 00:08:17

And that's what's expected of us. But in practice, people fail.

00:08:19--> 00:08:22

And some take it very far in the sense that they will do nothing.

00:08:23--> 00:08:25

And they live on hope.

00:08:26--> 00:08:31

They live in hope, that despite never praying, fasting, doing anything.

00:08:33--> 00:09:11

They will succeed and attain salvation merely by virtue of being members of the Mahabharata sword, Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his shofar is sufficient, his door is sufficient, his prayer, his supplication, his intercession, all of this is sufficient, so people live in this house. But in the past, there has actually been a theological belief that you don't have to do anything. Some people actually believed that as long as you say, that Allah has won, and except Allah as the only God.

00:09:13--> 00:09:34

And that you believe, just by words, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a last final messenger, then this theoretical theological belief is sufficient. After that, you don't have to do anything. In fact, some went as far as saying that you don't have to even abstain from any sin.

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

So you can continue to commit sins

00:09:39--> 00:10:00

and you can fail to fulfill any duty and obligation towards Allah. But as long as you believe, you just accept that Allah is the one and only God, and that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger. These two beliefs are sufficient in mind and

00:10:01--> 00:10:03

After that, as far as the

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

Your life is concerned, you can do what you want. Commit as many sins as you want,

00:10:12--> 00:10:32

fail to fulfill any obligation, any Gz towards Allah, then that's all fine because believe in God, and believe that the Prophet Mohammed is a final messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this mental belief is sufficient.

00:10:33--> 00:10:56

So some people actually believe that, theologically that was a, they actually acted on that and believe that in principle, but many others, they don't believe that per se. But practically, that's exactly how they live their lives. Now, the truth is, we can't just rely on our hope

00:10:57--> 00:11:15

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wouldn't see this is that one sided relationship that doesn't exist anywhere else. We expect we have all these expectations of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will pray for us, he will intercede on our behalf.

00:11:16--> 00:11:25

Our belonging to his alma is sufficient. And all of this in itself will guarantee your salvation, forgiveness and entry into jinn.

00:11:26--> 00:11:32

And beyond that, we don't have to do anything. That's a very one sided demanding

00:11:34--> 00:11:52

in titled, relationship, that we claim with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu it The truth is Allah Subhana, who has placed many obligations on us duties and responsibilities towards profits in the law? Holly?

00:11:54--> 00:11:58

Yes, he has done a lot for us. He already has.

00:12:00--> 00:12:03

And he will continue to do a lot for us

00:12:04--> 00:12:05

on the day of reckoning,

00:12:07--> 00:12:09

in the plane of reckoning,

00:12:10--> 00:12:30

he will pray for us he will intercede on our behalf, that's the greatest thing that we can hope for, he will give water with his own noble hands from his own pool and palm to his falls on the Day of Judgment. And that's again something we hope

00:12:31--> 00:12:41

but in order to earn that in order to win and gain that we also have duties and obligations towards a messenger of Allah Subhan Allah

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

and he if we fail in our GT,

00:12:46--> 00:13:05

we can't just live in hope, because we will actually be denied that even though we may want it and the Messenger of Allah may want how many Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is related, that on the Day of Judgment, he will be,

00:13:07--> 00:13:07

he says,

00:13:10--> 00:13:12

I will precede you

00:13:14--> 00:13:21

at the pump. So I will go to the pool and pond first and I will wait for you there.

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

And then his alma will arrive

00:13:27--> 00:13:38

and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with his own noble hands he will give members of his alma his followers water to drink on that day, when

00:13:40--> 00:13:45

once thirst cannot be quenched except by the water of the pond of the soul of law and the law highly

00:13:50--> 00:13:56

uncertain people will be weighed and then the angels will come and they will actually snatch

00:13:57--> 00:14:22

the words of the heavy fire they will be snatched the angels will snatch certain people from that line from that congregation and multitude waiting to be watered by the noble hands of the soul of law. Some of the love it will actually be snatched away right in front of it. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will protest and say they are members of my oma

00:14:24--> 00:14:30

and it will be said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam No, you do not know what they did after you.

00:14:32--> 00:14:33

They are not members of your

00:14:36--> 00:14:51

you do not know what they did after. So even though Strictly speaking, they are members of the oma they belong to the Omaha Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because of their failures, and because of their misdeeds

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

and their actions. They will be denied water from the noble hand of the messengers to love it.

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

them at his palm at his pool. And the angels will snatch them away right in front of the messenger. So the law it was, and that will just be the first of many denials, they will be denied many things. So we can't just live in hope. Our last panel with the AMA has honored us by being members of the Omaha the prophets in the law highly or something. But

00:15:25--> 00:15:54

that honor comes with its commensurate responsibilities, that privilege of being members of the alma mater sort of loss of the law, it comes with commensurate obligations. So what are some of those obligations? There are many mentioned in the verses of the Koran in the heavy. But there are the two very beautiful verses of the Quran in which Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks of some of the obligations of the believers towards a prophet of Allah sallallahu it

00:15:55--> 00:15:59

and I'll speak about those just from these two verses.

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

In sort of the last panel with Allah says, in some map share hidden share on one of the little Minami la

00:16:10--> 00:16:12

zoo.

00:16:13--> 00:16:28

See, aggressing the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah says, indeed we have sent you as a witness, as a witness, and as a giver of Glatt tide, and as a warn,

00:16:30--> 00:16:35

so that all of you are believers, so that you may believe in Him,

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

in Allah and in the Messenger of Allah.

00:16:40--> 00:17:00

And so that you may support and so that you may reveal and so that you may him the praise of Allah, morning and evening. Now, zpanel law, in this verse, last panel with Allah mentions, three of the duties of the Prophet sallallahu.

00:17:01--> 00:17:05

He had deed, he had a responsibility,

00:17:06--> 00:17:07

we have a relationship

00:17:08--> 00:17:14

between us and the Messenger of Allah, Allah love it. And as in any relationship,

00:17:16--> 00:17:21

there are duties and obligations and responsibilities and there are rights and claims.

00:17:23--> 00:17:25

We have arrived, we do.

00:17:29--> 00:17:36

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has certain duties and responsibilities and obligations towards us, he does.

00:17:39--> 00:17:44

As all the messengers of Allah had obligations and T T's, towards their fathers

00:17:46--> 00:17:47

on the Day of Judgment.

00:17:49--> 00:17:51

last panel, who would the other

00:17:52--> 00:17:56

will ask the messengers of Allah.

00:17:57--> 00:18:03

But did you convey my message? Did you fulfill your obligation?

00:18:05--> 00:18:08

And the messengers will say, Yes, we did. Oh, Allah.

00:18:10--> 00:18:13

Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will ask for proof.

00:18:14--> 00:18:17

But is there anyone who will testify in your favor.

00:18:21--> 00:18:28

And this oma will actually testify in favor of the previous prophets and messengers, some of the lohardagan was

00:18:29--> 00:18:38

that that indeed, they did fulfill their duty and responsibility and obligation towards their followers, by conveying faithfully the messenger of law.

00:18:40--> 00:18:40

And then

00:18:44--> 00:18:51

the greatest witness, so we will actually be witnesses on behalf of the former messengers.

00:18:52--> 00:19:02

But the greatest witness of all, will be the one witness who will testify on behalf of all of the messengers, and who will also testify on behalf of this.

00:19:04--> 00:19:21

As the law says, widget nabek Allah, Allah is shahida that unprofitable law we will bring you and we will produce you as a witness over all of these people. The greatest witness of Allah, in the court of Allah, on the day of judgment and reckoning will be the prophets of Allah Almighty.

00:19:24--> 00:20:00

So every messenger of Allah, her duties and obligations towards his followers, and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had certain obligations towards his own, and he fulfilled them thoroughly. Allah mentioned three of them here, in that also nakusha hidden one mobis shadow one of the euro. Indeed, we have sent you as a witness, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a witness. He is a witness, he will be a witness on the Day of Judgment, he will be a witness on our behalf, and a witness for all of the messengers of Allah that came

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

Before him,

00:20:02--> 00:20:22

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was also a bearer of glad tidings, and he conveyed those glad tidings. He was a warner. And he did Warner's, he has, he has cautioned us in other verses of the Quran, Allah Subhana who were that I mentioned other obligations of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

who will lead the birth of Minato, Sula, minea, to Allah him if he is a key him we,

00:20:33--> 00:20:40

Allah says he, Allah, Who sent amongst the unlettered people, a messenger from themselves.

00:20:41--> 00:20:51

What does he do yet worry him if he resides to them allows versus what is the key? And he nurtures them?

00:20:52--> 00:20:57

Well, you're only Mohamed Al Kitab al hikmah. And he teaches them the book and wisdom.

00:20:59--> 00:21:00

These were

00:21:01--> 00:21:11

the obligations of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now the question is, has the prophets of Allah fulfill these duties towards us?

00:21:12--> 00:21:13

Did he not

00:21:14--> 00:21:23

convey to the Sahaba of the alarm and to the subsequent generations through

00:21:24--> 00:21:29

a loss versus has not reached as in it's in ties? It has

00:21:31--> 00:21:37

to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not mold and nurture the Sahaba of the Allah?

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

Did he not person

00:21:41--> 00:22:00

take care of their spiritual needs? Did he just convey the words and leave them at bat? Now? He shaped them. He molded them. He nurtured them. He trained them. He discipline them he reformed. He did that. And he fulfilled his duty and obligation.

00:22:02--> 00:22:09

Did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not just convey the words but also teach the meanings of those words? Of course.

00:22:11--> 00:22:34

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fulfilled all of his duties. That's why in the farewell pilgrimage. Before that moods cheat of Sahaba the alarm rang Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pointed towards the heavens and raising his finger said long enough to fish head over law. Indeed I have conveyed so you be a witness of

00:22:35--> 00:23:21

having fulfilled his GT, he declared that he had done so. And he said to Allahu Allah, you be my witness. And indeed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has fulfilled his duty and obligation. So what is the duty and obligation of his alma towards him? So Allah says, in that also Natasha hit over, she don't want to do indeed we have century as a witness, as a bearer of glad tidings, and as a warner, so that you, what do you do? They taught me the law, what I saw, so that you may believe in Allah and in this message will do as zero. And so that you may support what the what they do, and so that you may reveal, there's another similar verse and sort of an ad off, in which last panel

00:23:21--> 00:23:34

with either again mentions some of the functions and duties of the Prophet sallallahu it was Alinea, Iran or Saudi Arabia me Olivia Donahoe mokuba. And in the Torah,

00:23:35--> 00:23:38

the Torah article in G yet more often Bill Maher, oh, boy, and how

00:23:40--> 00:23:42

we play but we hardly Molly.

00:23:43--> 00:23:44

We

00:23:47--> 00:23:51

had a Filipina an OB, he was ruhuna sorrow

00:23:52--> 00:23:53

in America.

00:23:57--> 00:24:00

Those who follow the

00:24:02--> 00:24:27

unlettered Prophet and Messenger, who's mentioned they do find with them in the Torah and in the in G. This is a mention of the Sahaba of the law. But the companions of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they follow the prophets of Allah. And then here's a description of the prophets of Allah. Allah describes them as being unlettered, he was unlettered.

00:24:30--> 00:24:32

He was a prophet, he was a messenger.

00:24:34--> 00:24:35

his

00:24:36--> 00:24:59

comment was foretold and prophesized in the earliest scriptures. And his mention is recorded in the Torah and in the in G, in the scriptures of the Jews and the questions. This is the poor man's testimony. Then Allah describes him further and these are some of the duties and obligations and responsibilities of the Prophet cymbala

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

who sell them, which he faithfully fulfilled? And what are they? Yeah, moreover,

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

he instructs them to good

00:25:09--> 00:25:10

way in home.

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

And he forbids them from evil from sin.

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

We are handled.

00:25:18--> 00:25:22

And he makes lawful for them the pure things we have really morally.

00:25:23--> 00:25:39

And he forbids for them the impure things, we have Islam, and he removes from them their bird when he cannot lay him, and those fetters and shackles that time

00:25:41--> 00:25:41

bound.

00:25:43--> 00:25:47

Indeed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did all of this.

00:25:48--> 00:26:16

So now since he has fulfill these obligations, similar to the verse or sort of the last panel with data says, So, what is the duty and obligation of his creator of last creation towards him? Phil Athena Amazon v. y 01, a soru. With the Berlin neural net, the insula marabu. Will Erica homomorphic, Allah says so those who believe in Him

00:26:18--> 00:26:21

and who support him and who assist him

00:26:22--> 00:26:30

and who obey and who follow that lines which was revealed with him.

00:26:33--> 00:26:35

These are the ones who are successful.

00:26:36--> 00:26:45

So it the combination of these two verses, Allah Subhana Allah Allah has mentioned a number of DTS, obligations and responsibilities

00:26:46--> 00:26:52

of the oma towards the prophets Allah Allah Almighty. And they are EMA.

00:26:55--> 00:26:56

dazi

00:26:57--> 00:26:58

Nasir

00:27:00--> 00:27:10

Debar, and Toby, from just these two verses, Allah has mentioned five different obligations towards a messenger of a loss and

00:27:14--> 00:27:16

one, to believe in,

00:27:18--> 00:27:19

to,

00:27:20--> 00:27:21

to support,

00:27:23--> 00:27:25

three, to assist

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

for to follow and obey Him and the light which he brought.

00:27:34--> 00:27:36

And number five, to reveal.

00:27:38--> 00:27:54

Of course, there are other obligations and other verses of the coroner. But in just these two verses, which are similar to each other, Allah has mentioned these obligations. So number one, to believe in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. That means true belief, if we want

00:27:56--> 00:28:01

his prayers, the honor and privilege of belonging to his own man, his family.

00:28:02--> 00:28:03

We want

00:28:05--> 00:28:11

his intercession, his shofar his Dora. We want to drink

00:28:12--> 00:28:38

water from his hands from his pool, on the day of judgment. We want to follow him into gym. We want him to lead us into agenda then we can't just demand it. We can't just feel entitled to it. We can't just expect it. We can't just want it and wishes. We can't just help for it without paying the price.

00:28:40--> 00:28:49

In one Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah in the salon de la hollier lo the product of LA is expensive

00:28:51--> 00:28:56

nothing comes for free. Nothing neither in the dunya or the

00:28:57--> 00:28:58

unless Aloysius

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

nothing comes for free. There is no such thing as

00:29:05--> 00:29:07

that comes for free.

00:29:08--> 00:29:12

Absolutely nothing comes for free. A message from Allah

00:29:15--> 00:29:16

that's a rule of life.

00:29:18--> 00:29:29

Now we don't expect that in the dunya Of course we want it we wish it if we can get away with it. Everyone wants something for free. We want to be takers without giving

00:29:30--> 00:29:35

last curse those who take without giving way limit of 15 and Lavina.

00:29:36--> 00:29:38

Allen naseous tofu

00:29:40--> 00:29:43

with that guy alone, or was your suit on? and I

00:29:45--> 00:29:49

do mean Alvin yo mucuna me

00:29:51--> 00:29:51

Whoa,

00:29:53--> 00:29:55

whoa be unto the cintas

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

who are distintas

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

who

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

What will be unto the reducers

00:30:04--> 00:30:12

won't be until the reductionists. That's the meaning of 15 those who reduce those who stent,

00:30:13--> 00:30:14

those who remove

00:30:16--> 00:30:23

So who are the mental 15 law describes Lavine. The third one the naseous. Though foon way that was

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

those who,

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

when they measure

00:30:36--> 00:30:39

for themselves, against the people

00:30:43--> 00:30:46

you stole from, they take their full measure,

00:30:47--> 00:30:47

what

00:30:48--> 00:30:50

was your sir,

00:30:51--> 00:30:56

and when they measure a way for the people against themselves,

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

sorry, the other way around those who when they measure for themselves, for others, that and against themselves, they reduce, and when they measure or weigh for themselves against others, they take the full measure.

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

So,

00:31:24--> 00:31:25

they don't wish to play fair.

00:31:26--> 00:31:31

They want to take as much as possible, if possible, everything from nothing,

00:31:33--> 00:31:44

give nothing, take everything, and if possible, and they can't get away with taking everything for nothing to give as little as possible and take as much as possible, take the full measure

00:31:45--> 00:31:58

and give as little as possible. Allah has cursed these people. And who are these people that are described as multiple 15. Simple everyday traders, so in the marketplace, those who when they way

00:32:00--> 00:32:23

to sell to others, then they try to reduce the weights, take the full measure and give as little as possible. So for everyday veggies and fruits for grain and cross, last panel with the other has curves, people who take who don't pay the full price, they don't pay the proper price.

00:32:24--> 00:32:46

So reality, we may want to take things for free, and we will try to get away with it. But the truth is, nothing comes for free. Everything comes with a price and that's in the dunya bread, milk, fruit vege grain crops. All of this comes with a price and unless a person is fraudulent

00:32:48--> 00:32:52

and a liar and a scheme and a thief,

00:32:53--> 00:32:55

a person will pay the full price.

00:32:57--> 00:33:01

In fact, a true belief, a true a true believer gives more.

00:33:02--> 00:33:03

Always gives more.

00:33:05--> 00:33:06

So when we

00:33:08--> 00:33:16

do not expect anything for free in the dunya How can we expect so much for free in the

00:33:17--> 00:33:27

we want the Dora the prayer. We want the shofar the intercession, we want the salvation, we want the water,

00:33:28--> 00:33:31

we want the cup, we want the poo,

00:33:32--> 00:33:33

we want the honor,

00:33:34--> 00:33:49

and privilege, all related to the sort of last on the line he will send them without paying any price. And we are the worst of them for 15. We are the worst of the splinters. We are the worst of all people

00:33:50--> 00:34:11

in that we are not trying to steal and take the full measure in fruits and vegetable crops and grain. We are trying to take our full measure and demand something for free without paying the price or any part of the price in our dealings with Rasulullah sallallahu. What could be worse?

00:34:12--> 00:34:14

What could be worse?

00:34:15--> 00:34:39

We are trying to defraud Allah and His Messenger Allah love it. We are demanding and expecting and we feel entitled to the door and the shofar, the concession and the prayer of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. In his representation, we want his water we want to spray we want is in session, we want the privilege of blowing into his own mouth without paying any part of the price without fulfilling any

00:34:41--> 00:34:57

last panel without as placed obligations on us. And the first of those is that the domino Blair who was sued, so that you believe in Allah and His Messenger salani something not believing in his messenger subtle allottee some means true belief.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

It means true belief.

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

Not just words,

00:35:03--> 00:35:04

when a husband and wife

00:35:07--> 00:35:11

live together, and each claims left for the other.

00:35:15--> 00:35:17

And these aren't just words.

00:35:19--> 00:35:25

On one hand, when the husband or wife says to the other, I love you.

00:35:26--> 00:35:37

But their actions, their deeds, their choices, their behavior, all of these things do not betray love.

00:35:39--> 00:35:52

The husband will question the sincerity anyone will question the sincerity. The wife will question the sincerity of her husband. And it's very evidence becomes very evident. words or words,

00:35:53--> 00:36:06

claims or claims. One one's deeds, one's actions, one's attitude, one's approach one's behavior, one's lifestyle, one's very being should reflect the truth of that claim.

00:36:09--> 00:36:21

Such false claims of love without the deeds and the attitude and the reality backing that claim will eventually lead to divorce or separation. And that happens

00:36:23--> 00:36:24

in every relationship.

00:36:26--> 00:36:32

We want words and claims to be backed by deeds and actions.

00:36:33--> 00:36:37

In simple everyday relationships, forget husband and wife to friends.

00:36:39--> 00:36:41

Someone claims friendship.

00:36:43--> 00:36:56

And they actually keep on repeating that I'm your friend or consider me your friend. But they don't fulfill the duties and obligations of a friend. They don't honor that friendship. They don't behave like friends.

00:36:58--> 00:37:02

Most people will just turn away they won't give them the time of the day.

00:37:03--> 00:37:06

There's no obligation so the person will just cut off relations.

00:37:08--> 00:37:34

There has to be a reality behind any such claim in relationships. Now in the greatest of relationships, that between the prophets of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and a member of his oma one of his followers. There cannot be an empty hollow, of love for a sort of loss in the law. It was off believing in him. One can't just say I believe in him. That's

00:37:36--> 00:38:20

it has to be true belief. It has to be believe from the heart. It has to be believe which makes a person love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than anything or anyone else. It has to be believed which is backed by obedience and action. It has to be true believe. So the first obligation of a believer of a Muslim of a mock Minh of a follower of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that he believes in the Messenger of Allah and what he brought. And that belief means love, obedience, and follow. Number two, in both verses Allah mentions a second Jeet, which is

00:38:22--> 00:38:34

that well, there are bleef, Eman dazi, Nusrah, topia and etbr. I won't mention them in order. But let's move on to the second one, which is

00:38:36--> 00:38:40

Dorothy, revealing the messenger some of the law it was.

00:38:42--> 00:38:43

This is different to love.

00:38:45--> 00:38:49

Love is one thing, reverence is beyond love.

00:38:51--> 00:38:54

Love, respect, reference,

00:38:55--> 00:38:56

all of them.

00:38:58--> 00:39:12

There are subtle differences between and we should have all of these sort of sort of laughs allow it. So we believe in the Messenger of Allah, that's our first duty. Secondly, we love will respect will reveal.

00:39:14--> 00:39:17

Now living the profits of the law, it wasn't as well known.

00:39:19--> 00:39:21

last panel with the ANA has declared intolerable

00:39:22--> 00:39:25

and the Bo dabbling in them and forcing him was worth

00:39:27--> 00:39:37

the profits is closer and more rightful and more deserving to the believers in their own souls that Allah has said it's categorically what

00:39:38--> 00:39:58

rights does the Messenger of Allah have over us? His right is that he has a greater rights over us than we have over ourselves. He is closer to us than our own souls. He is more deserving to us than we ourselves.

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

He should be closer to us. Simply we should love him more than we love ourselves. Now, that's actually categorically mentioned in the hidden

00:40:10--> 00:40:18

mammal hardy mammals can relate from nomadic or the lava and that was sort of last time it was seldom said.

00:40:20--> 00:40:21

Learn you may not

00:40:22--> 00:40:30

have a mutuality, one of the main, one of you cannot truly believe until I am more beloved to him.

00:40:31--> 00:40:37

When his father, his child, meaning parents, children, and the whole of mankind

00:40:40--> 00:40:51

we truly cannot believe in Allah unless we love the Messenger of Allah more than anyone else and anything else. Once I would have not a barber, the alarm

00:40:52--> 00:41:07

was holding the hand of a sort of La Silla love it. So they both had their hands clenched and holding his hand with great love and affection, devotion, and model the learner said the art of sword Allah

00:41:08--> 00:41:12

after myself, I love you more than anyone else.

00:41:14--> 00:41:21

So holding his hand, he declared his left and said, after myself, I love you more than anyone else.

00:41:23--> 00:41:32

So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, Omar, you cannot believe until I'm more validity than even yourself.

00:41:33--> 00:41:43

model the alarm said Yasuda law. Indeed, you are dear to me and more beloved to me than myself. Now for I continue.

00:41:46--> 00:41:52

Simple question here that the honorable deal la hora and suddenly just changes with

00:41:57--> 00:41:59

IE, in one conversation.

00:42:01--> 00:42:07

He progressed from saying that after myself, you are the most beloved to me.

00:42:09--> 00:42:11

So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, No,

00:42:12--> 00:42:20

you cannot believe in today more validity than even yourself. So I'm under the law and suddenly said, You're a sort of law, you are more beloved to me than myself.

00:42:21--> 00:42:30

So were these just words? Were these just empty claims? And how could almost have the alarm and switch from one to the other in among? Is that what happened?

00:42:32--> 00:42:39

Could someone maliciously claim that? Oh, these were just word it's like someone saying?

00:42:43--> 00:42:45

Are you my friend? Yes, I am your friend.

00:42:49--> 00:42:58

Am I your best friend? Yes. After such and such a person, you're my best friend? No, you can't be my best friend.

00:42:59--> 00:43:05

I can't be your best friend unless I'm even a better friend to you than that person. So the person says, Okay.

00:43:07--> 00:43:16

You're my best friend, even better than that one, just words in an instant. So a lot of the law when he said after myself, you are the most beloved.

00:43:18--> 00:43:20

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said no,

00:43:22--> 00:43:32

until I have more validity than even yourself, you cannot believe so a lot of the alertness of the artist or the law, you are dear to me, and more beloved than even myself.

00:43:33--> 00:43:38

So it didn't matter. The alarm just changes words. Now. So what happened?

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

When are the alohar in spoke,

00:43:44--> 00:44:08

he spoke on the basis of common parlance, common talk common vocabulary, common conception, which is that in human terms, it's almost a given. It's almost accepted universally, that a person loves themselves more than anything or anyone else.

00:44:10--> 00:44:12

It's universally accepted.

00:44:14--> 00:44:15

That

00:44:16--> 00:44:18

Yes, a mother loves the child.

00:44:22--> 00:44:32

But Strictly speaking, a mother will not love the child more than she loves herself. human instinct of self survival.

00:44:35--> 00:44:41

So it's almost universally accepted that no matter how much a person lives the other,

00:44:42--> 00:44:54

their greatest love is reserved for themselves. That's what everyone in every culture in every religion in every society has always believed. So the arrows believe the same too.

00:44:56--> 00:45:00

So all the alarm. He was using common view

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

vocabulary

00:45:03--> 00:45:05

common parlance, that

00:45:06--> 00:45:09

after myself You are the most beloved to me.

00:45:10--> 00:45:23

It's like anyone else, whether they say it or not, they say you are the dearest to me You are the most beloved to me. What they mean is the after myself, you are the dearest, after myself, you're the most beloved.

00:45:25--> 00:45:40

So a lot of the love and using common vocabulary, common parlance, common conception, he said, O Messenger of Allah, after myself, you are the dearest most beloved to me. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam correct?

00:45:43--> 00:45:45

Until and unless

00:45:46--> 00:46:04

I am more validity than even yourself. You cannot believe Mr. de la hora and hearing these words of Russell last a lot and he was he scanned his heart, he checked his love, he analyzed His love and His Word.

00:46:06--> 00:46:08

And he realized

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

he realized

00:46:11--> 00:46:19

that indeed, rather than going with common parlance, rather than going with common vocabulary,

00:46:20--> 00:46:26

the common vocabulary did not portray his true love for a pseudo La Silla love it was.

00:46:28--> 00:46:35

Rather when he analyzed His love, when he reflected on his devotion to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:46:36--> 00:47:02

he realized that indeed, he loved the Messenger of Allah more than he loved himself, his deeds, his actions, everything proved it. And so then he said to the messenger of a loss of the law, it was a messenger of a light Indeed, I do love you more than I love myself. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Now Omar, now meaning now.

00:47:04--> 00:47:05

That is true, Billy.

00:47:06--> 00:47:27

So I'm going to do la horns live didn't change from one moment to the other. No, only his wording changed. The previous wording did not faithfully portray his true love. The later wording did his lifting change. And that's a fact of the matter the alonza love was such

00:47:29--> 00:47:34

a bus a bus and Abdulmutallab the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his uncle.

00:47:37--> 00:47:39

He embraced Islam much late

00:47:41--> 00:47:46

and he was with the pagans and the people of Makkah in the Battle of Bhutan and he was taken captive

00:47:48--> 00:47:51

of the Allah Horan was encouraging al Abbas of not

00:47:53--> 00:48:05

to embrace Islam and follow suit Ullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was advising the uncle to follow his nephew. And he was being very persistent. And then he explained

00:48:07--> 00:48:09

the Allahu anhu said that

00:48:12--> 00:48:30

the fact that you believe in the Messenger of Allah and become his follower, is dearer to me than my own father believing in the Messenger of Allah and following him, because I know how much pleasure it would bring the Messenger of Allah.

00:48:31--> 00:48:37

Imagine the pleasure of the Messenger of Allah was greater to model the alarm than his own pleasure

00:48:39--> 00:48:50

for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be pleased by seeing his uncle believe in him, was great to the Emerald, the Allah Horan than the pleasure of seeing his own father becoming and

00:48:52--> 00:49:37

indeed, that's our motto de la harmes love walls. So his left did not change from one moment to the other. Only his wording change the previous word and didn't fought faithfully portray his true love, the latter wording dead. So this is our obligation to believe in the Messenger of Allah one to to love Him and to love him how to love him more than we love our children, our parents and ourselves. Now of course that cannot happen automatically. Rather, this is something which every believer should work towards. To this is a kind of love that we need to engender and instill in ourselves. We have to create it. We have to make ourselves love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:49:37--> 00:50:00

sallam, it's an obligation and duty on us. It's not sufficient to say I believe in the Messenger of Allah, and I love him. No, we have to truly engender that level of love. instill that intensity of love in our hearts for sort of laughs in the love it. It can be done, but it has to be worked on. It has to be worked for and one person

00:50:00--> 00:50:37

achieves that there probably is no greater pleasure. That's why Mahatma Muslim and others all relate. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Phil Othman couldn't a fee would have been Hallo with an Imam when gamma la who was a soldier who had beaten him and mercy Well, there are three things which are found in a person through them, that person will taste the sweetness of he man, number one, such a person for whom Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to him along his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are more beloved than everyone else.

00:50:38--> 00:50:39

And number two,

00:50:41--> 00:51:17

what your mother in law, he loves a person he does not love, love them, except for the sake of Allah. When a person reaches that level of, of love for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, every anila everything isn't revolves around that love. Everything is determined by that love, the love of Allah and the love of his messengers to love it. dictate the loves the likes and the dislikes of this person to he or she will love for the sake of loving Allah, for the sake of loving the messenger.

00:51:19--> 00:51:48

They will like they will dislike on the basis of the like and dislike of Allah and His Messenger allottee. That's the level of faith there has to be attained by great sacrifice, commitment and devotion. But that is actually an obligation. So the first obligation email in the Messenger of Allah believe in the messenger to living the messenger. Three, true faith, true love, three, respecting the messenger.

00:51:52--> 00:51:56

And beyond respect revering the messenger of

00:51:58--> 00:51:59

now scran Allah.

00:52:01--> 00:52:05

We can't just claim to love the Messenger of Allah without respect.

00:52:07--> 00:52:08

without revealing

00:52:09--> 00:52:12

now the Sahaba de la hora demonstrated or

00:52:16--> 00:52:27

they demonstrate a true belief. They displayed true love, they proved respect and reverence for the Messenger of Allah subhana wa honey.

00:52:29--> 00:52:37

Respect is a major theme in Islam and respect for the rule of law. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is an obligation.

00:52:39--> 00:52:55

We are to respect his name. we all ought to respect and honor his memory, we ought to respect his worth. We ought to respect his teach. We ought to respect his likes, his dislikes, his preferences, his choices.

00:52:56--> 00:52:58

We cannot disrespect any of these.

00:53:00--> 00:53:05

We also revere the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but before reverence comes respect,

00:53:07--> 00:53:19

how can a person revia the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and they did not possess the minimum of respect, respect is an obligation upon the believers towards a messenger of Allah Subhan Allah Almighty.

00:53:21--> 00:53:23

Now, the simplest of things,

00:53:25--> 00:53:41

one, when we, when we take the name of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, we are not to simply call him by his name. Even in the third pass, we shouldn't just say Mohammed said this, and Mohammed said that Mohammed did this and Muhammad.

00:53:42--> 00:53:53

Now, Allah says in the Quran, LA, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, do not make the call of the messenger.

00:53:54--> 00:54:05

Like your call of each other. What does that mean? When we speak to each other when we address each other? What do we say? Zaid Bakker, Omar.

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

Ali with man.

00:54:12--> 00:54:21

Sorry, sorry. When we call out to each other we call out to each other by first name. We're on first name terms.

00:54:24--> 00:54:30

in first person, second person, third person, it doesn't matter. We're on first name terms we just say the name.

00:54:32--> 00:54:34

Law says no matter how you speak to each.

00:54:36--> 00:54:45

Do not speak to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam like you speak to each other do not call out to Him that you call out to each other. Do not address him like you address each other.

00:54:48--> 00:54:49

Don't just say yeah, Mohammed.

00:54:52--> 00:54:54

Even in third person do not just say

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

this is why the companions are the alarm.

00:55:00--> 00:55:17

Even the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even family members, even older family members. They spoke to an of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with immense respect. Even his wives would say to him for that to be what may or

00:55:18--> 00:55:19

may your

00:55:21--> 00:55:31

May my parents may my father and mother be your ransom, or messenger of Allah. Imagine the wives would speak to him in that the wives

00:55:33--> 00:55:37

the wives would never address the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by his first name.

00:55:39--> 00:55:40

They would never do so.

00:55:48--> 00:56:05

They would, even though they were his wives would say for that I'll be willing meows. This is why the relationship of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was one not just of love, not one on one not just of respect, but one of actual reference.

00:56:07--> 00:56:16

So we are not to speak of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam without addressing him with his correct titles, to say the Messenger of Allah,

00:56:18--> 00:56:34

further prophets of Allah, and uses other titles. Furthermore, we should never take the name of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam without sending Salutations, Peace, blessings and prayers on solitons

00:56:35--> 00:56:38

In fact, this is one of our greatest failures.

00:56:43--> 00:56:47

Whenever we hear the name of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:56:48--> 00:56:50

we should say Salalah le.

00:56:52--> 00:56:54

We shouldn't remain silent.

00:56:56--> 00:56:57

Allah has said so in the

00:56:59--> 00:57:06

in the LA Houma la Eco, who is a Luna Allenby, a Lena Armand, similarly he was suddenly

00:57:08--> 00:57:09

obey leaves.

00:57:10--> 00:57:14

Before that law says, Verily Allah and His angels,

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

they send

00:57:18--> 00:57:19

prayers

00:57:21--> 00:57:22

upon the prophets,

00:57:25--> 00:57:30

oh believers, you also send your prayers

00:57:31--> 00:57:35

and your salutations and greetings to the prophets of Allah Haile.

00:57:37--> 00:58:00

Now by pressing Command and instruction of sending our prayers, greetings to the prophets in the law, Heidi who send them with the words in the law home Allah ekata. This say says a lot. So Allah says you do it, but not because your prayers, the prophet needs your prayers to love it. Not because of that.

00:58:01--> 00:58:04

It's not like a sort of laughs a little love it who seldom needs your

00:58:06--> 00:58:47

needs your prayers, needs your Salah, and need your greetings, does he know because before he tells us to do it, a lot already declares that whether you do it or not, don't worry, Allah and His angels. They send their salutations their prayers and their peace and greetings to the prophets of Allah. You do it to see if a lot is it. If the angels of Allah are constantly doing it, how and why would the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam need our son art and salon and it isn't. So why are we instructed to do it? We are instructed to do it for ourselves.

00:58:48--> 00:58:56

You send one certain Salaam upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah will shower you with 10 Salawat and Salaam on you.

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

That's why the sort of last little alarm It was sillim says

00:59:05--> 00:59:20

whoever sends one seller upon me one prayer Salah means prayer. Now, depending on the context, allows prayer to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam means allows mercy on the messenger sallallahu

00:59:21--> 00:59:32

the angels prayers for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mean there's supplication to Allah to shower Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam with blessings and peace.

00:59:34--> 00:59:44

And our prayers are similar of the lower grade to Rasulullah sallallahu himself. So whoever sends one son up upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:59:45--> 00:59:48

Allah sends 10 Salawat upon him.

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

So we gain more through our Salatin Salaam than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gained from those from us. He gains a lot more from Allah

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

Because Allah Himself is showering him with a Salawat.

01:00:04--> 01:00:16

So when Allah tells us to send our salah and our Salaam to the suta la sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, the question is, is it so much for him? Or is it more for us? It's for us.

01:00:18--> 01:00:19

We should

01:00:21--> 01:00:38

send our set out and sit down when ever we hear is May. Now the orlimar have actually differed in their opinion. They all agree that this is an obligation because Allah commands, they all agree that it's an obligation. That difference of opinion is how frequent and how often

01:00:40--> 01:00:46

so central Mr. have said that this verse is an obligation, but it's only an obligation once in a lifetime.

01:00:47--> 01:01:15

But they in a minority, others have said, this is an obligation, at least once in every gathering. So if there's a gathering, and or whether it's a small gathering of friends, and colleagues and family or whether it's a large gathering, someone might have said this obligation is applicable only once in a gathering. And others have said no, the obligation is applicable on every mention of the name of Rasulullah sallallahu. It was.

01:01:18--> 01:01:21

In one Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

01:01:23--> 01:01:42

the fleet's bamboo ramblings Muslim, Imam Timothy and a son of a Hebrew lithium and the killer in the whole film you sell nearly, but the stingy, stingy miser is that person in whose presence My name is mentioned. And he does not send salaat upon me.

01:01:43--> 01:01:43

It's true.

01:01:44--> 01:01:50

But the real stingy person, the real miser, the real penny pincher

01:01:52--> 01:01:54

is that person who,

01:01:56--> 01:02:00

when the name of Rasulullah sallallahu, it was him as mentioned before.

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

He does not send Salatin Salaam upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's that same thing. He wants everything for free. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he's a real stingy person, the real miser, someone who doesn't want to pay the price. Who's the who's

01:02:19--> 01:02:40

who's the stingy person who's a miser? Who is a tight fisted one. Someone who doesn't want to spend someone who clutches onto his wealth. Someone who doesn't want to share someone who's so greedy, so tight fisted so narrow minded, that they don't want to pay the price. They want everything for free, but number one to get.

01:02:46--> 01:02:54

Such a person is love. Anyone who doesn't pay their way, someone who always takes but never puts into the kitty,

01:02:55--> 01:03:01

someone who always wants to take on others but never shares such a person is considered a vulture

01:03:02--> 01:03:03

a scavenge

01:03:05--> 01:03:14

a hyena in human terms, because a person wants to take and never give, take and never share. That person is tight fisted.

01:03:15--> 01:03:33

Nobody wants to be called the Buffy nobody who wants to be called the believers were considered very lowly and despicable. Some people take pride in their violence trong, but some people take pride in their violence, because being bad being hard is considered

01:03:35--> 01:03:42

a dignified thing in a twisted way. But who in law's name ever considers ball to be dignified?

01:03:43--> 01:03:52

Some people like to be considered hard and harsh and relentless and violent and bad and wicked,

01:03:53--> 01:03:56

because it demands a certain twisted respect

01:03:57--> 01:04:00

for being a female, who likes a fee?

01:04:01--> 01:04:28

Who wants to be considered a miser a tight fisted person? No one does. But a pseudo last in the law. It was seldom said but he believed that the real deal the real miser is that person in his presence My name is mentioned and he doesn't send salaat upon me. So facts. He wants the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he wants to belong to the Omaha of Rasulullah sallallahu it.

01:04:29--> 01:04:31

He wants the privilege of being in this room.

01:04:33--> 01:04:36

He wants the privilege of being a follower of the prophets of Allah.

01:04:37--> 01:04:59

He wants the door out of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. He wants all the benefits of the great sacrifices made by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed and wept for his oma. He shed His blood for his room. He suffered wounds for his oma. he sustained injuries for his oma. He suffered indignity

01:05:00--> 01:05:50

vitriol verbal abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, mental abuse, he suffered persecution. He suffered all of this for the sake of this summer. He toiled underwent gait, great trouble and turmoil. He wept, he shed tears he shed dropped some blood. For the sake of this, he did all of this, so that this could be given the arm and the message of Allah so that this man could be forgiven and attain salvation. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did all of this for the sake of this on this belief wants the benefits of all the benefits that accrue from that great sacrifice of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, yet the stingy Thai fisted, miserly, Maisie indolent,

01:05:50--> 01:06:08

insolent individual cannot be bothered to part his lips, when the name of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has mentioned, he cannot be bothered to parters lips, and at least just say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is why the sort of la de Salatu was Salam says he is the he that's the he

01:06:09--> 01:06:10

he is a stingy

01:06:11--> 01:06:14

sort of the Hebrew liniment located in the hall from you Sunday.

01:06:16--> 01:06:47

So it's an obligation on us to believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, to love him to respect and to respect his name to honor his memory and address him in the right way. And part of that respect is that we don't just say Rasulullah instead of Muhammad Nabila instead of Mohammed, we give him his due titles, and then his prefixes, and then the suffix is, we say Salalah, Heidi.

01:06:48--> 01:06:54

It's remarkable. When we speak of others, we fret each.

01:06:55--> 01:06:57

So when someone is

01:06:58--> 01:07:10

introduced to an audience, there are all manner of titles, before his name as prefixes and following his name, suffixes. So many.

01:07:11--> 01:07:27

And we revel in these titles. We gloat over these titles. We feel indignant and insulted if someone doesn't mention our titles. Some people insist on being called a doctor, so maybe a doctor.

01:07:28--> 01:07:32

But if someone says, Oh, Mr. Doctor

01:07:35--> 01:07:35

and on him

01:07:37--> 01:07:37

and the man

01:07:39--> 01:07:44

Imagine if someone says Dr. Hudson smarter chef,

01:07:46--> 01:07:46

Chef

01:07:48--> 01:07:57

I don't mind call me what you want. Doesn't matter. You're calling me something doesn't change anything doesn't change your reality. It doesn't.

01:07:59--> 01:08:04

Calling anyone anything does not change the reality. You can call someone

01:08:06--> 01:08:07

shameful Islam,

01:08:08--> 01:08:10

the grand shake of the whole of Islam

01:08:14--> 01:08:20

that's why some will allow us to say they're gonna have scheffel Islam for Salama Island is

01:08:22--> 01:08:25

that if this is the shade of Islam then Salaam to Islam.

01:08:26--> 01:08:29

He is a shade of Islam Salaam to Islam.

01:08:31--> 01:08:42

So giving someone titles doesn't change reality. If anyone abuses Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and remembers him with the worst of titles. It doesn't change reality.

01:08:45--> 01:08:49

And if someone gives someone else a false titles, shameful Islam, and he's

01:08:52--> 01:09:14

a turtle Jr. He lien. The most ignorance of the ignorance doesn't make them shareholders, land titles don't mean anything. So we get offended if someone doesn't call us or call those that we like and love and respect with their due titles. And yet, when it comes to the sort of law, so the law highly or seldom

01:09:15--> 01:09:20

out of laziness or Indians, we just say Mohammed, Mohammed, Mohammed, Allah has forbidden

01:09:22--> 01:09:24

love the God will do or suitable in

01:09:25--> 01:09:37

America. Things have truly been reversed. I say this because some people, they insist they insist in their writings and in their speeches.

01:09:39--> 01:10:00

On mentioning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam without any of his titles. Some people with due respect, they do say in their introduction, that this book is designed to be presented in such a way that we have taken the name of a sort of La Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam, without his titles for free.

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

fluent read.

01:10:02--> 01:10:05

But others, they insist that

01:10:07--> 01:10:11

we need, we can't worship Mohammed.

01:10:12--> 01:10:19

And part of worshiping Mohammed is to give him all these fancy titles. So we will mention him just by his name.

01:10:20--> 01:10:22

So, Pamela,

01:10:23--> 01:10:29

in the same speech, they will mention the name of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Repeatedly

01:10:30--> 01:10:50

how Mohammed Mohammed said this Mohammed said that Mohammed said this moment, and remarkably Subhana Allah remarkably others, some of these speeches, remarkably, in the same speech in the same context, they will say, the following. Now for instance, shameful Islam fula

01:10:51--> 01:11:37

Abou falon inophyllum shavon Islam Rahim, Allah has said that Mohammed said this, Mohammed did that. So when it comes to mentioning the scholar, they'll give him all the titles with the prefixes and suffixes. Or when he can come sort of sort of subtle Allah hidey holes in them. They insist on just saying, stripping him, him of all his titles insane. And their argument is that respecting him or revealing him beyond you is an innovation, it's close to wish scramble. Allah says, Do not call out to the messenger of a large you call out to each other. So part of our respect is to call the name of a sort of last in the line he was alone with his GE titles. And part of our respect, which has an

01:11:37--> 01:11:41

obligation on us is to say some of the law highly was

01:11:43--> 01:11:51

wrong shouldn't be lazy about this. It's for our own good, but you've got a bit of the alarm set to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

01:11:54--> 01:11:55

I make part of my

01:11:57--> 01:11:59

Saladin Salaam upon.

01:12:00--> 01:12:07

So how much of it how much of it should I make so the Prophet that the meaning of the Hadith as you wish, she said Yasuda? Allah, if I make

01:12:12--> 01:12:49

one quarter, half to third, it's a progressive Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, it's good for you, good for you. And then finally, it will be even the parable of the Allah and the city Allah sort of law, what if I make my whole day? So when I raised my hands to supplicate to Allah and asked for myself, if, instead of praying for myself, I make my whole do us a Latin Salam upon you. What will it be? How will it be? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in that case, all your sins shall be forgiven and all your needs shall be taken care of.

01:12:52--> 01:13:17

So Salatin ceramill congresso de la sala love it who seldom is not so much for him, as it is for us. Why do I say is not so much for him? Not in a disrespectful manner. Because Allah has melodica a line His angels send their salaat upon the prophets of Allah Almighty. So we have been commanded to do so not because he needs our Salah when he has a silhouette of a lot

01:13:19--> 01:14:03

of the angels. We have been commanded to send our silhouette to him, more so for ourselves. And this is what the prophet sallallahu wasallam said, Whoever sends one Salah upon me, Allah Subhana Allah will show him with 10 Salawat. So that's part of our respect. We need to respect his name, his titles, his memory, sensor, Earth and Sadam upon Him, we need to respect his teachings has some respect his son, respect his likes, his dislikes, we need to be very careful and ensure that we do not say something which smacks of disrespect towards any of the teachings of sola, sola.

01:14:05--> 01:14:17

That will Mr. The classical amount of the past, we would admonish and discipline anyone who said anything which appeared to be disrespectful towards of sort of law. So the law it was

01:14:20--> 01:14:25

simple things. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam liked God,

01:14:28--> 01:14:29

the God of Medina.

01:14:30--> 01:14:34

Now God is a family so you get all kinds of God's

01:14:36--> 01:14:42

pumpkin as part of the gold family. But the God of Medina is the

01:14:43--> 01:14:56

many of us, small long not the large pumpkin time, but the God of Medina Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lacked God in order we call it good. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam liked

01:14:58--> 01:14:59

and he loved it.

01:15:01--> 01:15:16

In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would chase pieces of gold in the bowl or in the plates of steam, you will change the meaning of chases or you were trying to seize it. But because of the statue, and the stock, he would move around that's meaning of Chase.

01:15:17--> 01:16:01

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam loved gold, that not everybody likes gold, but the prophets of Allah, they actually went to the extent and went through the trouble of documenting in their books, that no one should say anything disrespectful about the Prophet sallallahu, it was Adams liking gold. So for instance, if someone if someone mentions that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam liked God, you shouldn't say immediately thereafter in that context, but I don't like God. You shouldn't, because that is actually disrespectful towards the sort of law. So the law Harley who said, I've actually document that they have document

01:16:02--> 01:16:38

that one should be very careful when it comes to the sort of loss and the livelihoods of them and not say anything, which is disrespectful, disrespectful, even about the simplest of things, to like, what he liked, dislike what he disliked. Well, a man Subhana Allah, the true, knowledgeable and Paes, individuals were trying to follow every son of a sword, Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So part of our respect, part of the obligation with respect is to respect everything about the property of the law it remember.

01:16:41--> 01:17:39

Last crown who was in the urn, he has commanded the pilgrims', he commanded the Sahaba of the lover, and he commanded the believes, that do not disrespect those who are on their way on pilgrimage to the house of Allah, do not disrespect even the sacrificial animals do not even disrespect the color in the garden. So those dry leaves on the string, or those sandals or bark of wood bark, around the necks of the sacrificial animals, which marked them for sacrifice these gardens, whether these garlands or flowers, or dry leaves, or bark, or wood, or sandals or slippers, or old shoes, this is what the Arabs would do. Allah says in the Quran, in the context of those verses, I won't go into

01:17:39--> 01:17:46

detail because we don't have time. But law says in the context of these verses, that do not even disrespect, honor,

01:17:47--> 01:17:51

do not consider sacred, even these sacrificial animals on their

01:17:53--> 01:18:35

image, because of the mismatch and the connection with the house of Allah with pilgrimage. So even garlands around the next of the sacrificial animals are to be respected and not disrespected, or to be considered sacred. So what can one say of the likes and the preferences and the choices of a sort of law and the law and he or send them, one has to be respectful and moving beyond respect, reverence, a loss of Hannah, who would the ANA admonish the Sahaba of the alarm whenever anyone spoke or behaved disrespectfully in front of him, even though he wouldn't say anything? Allah reprimanded them? A lot, correct them a lot even reprimanded and corrected and would have known

01:18:35--> 01:18:43

hubbub, and we'll look at a Cydia rhodiola is two fathers in law, his senior left tenants, the greatest of the Muslims.

01:18:45--> 01:19:12

Allah even reprimanded them. In fact, as mentioned in the Hadith, that the respect that the Sahaba of the alarm had of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, some people have gone as far as to mention that the relationship of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with this whole battle, the alarm on him, was a very relaxed, laid back, joking, humorous, jovial, friendly one.

01:19:14--> 01:19:28

partially true, but not in the way it's been portrayed. Some people in their speeches in their writings have tried to claim that the relationship between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and the companions was a very

01:19:30--> 01:19:54

easygoing, relaxed, friendly jovial one where there was a lot of joking, friendly, idle chitchat and the Sahaba of the alarm were just lounging around in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And they say this, one of the reasons for them claiming this is because they wish to

01:19:55--> 01:19:59

refuse and to criticize and attack the risk.

01:20:00--> 01:20:16

shown by juniors to their seniors respect shown by disciples to their mentors and guides, they wish to attack and criticize and discredit the respect shown by students to their teachers and scholars.

01:20:19--> 01:21:02

This is one of the reasons and some of them are actually clearly mentioned that why do these students respect their teachers in this manner? Why are scholars shown this kind of respect? Why this civility why the companions went like this, and then they go on to portray the Sahaba de la vie him as a band of Merry Men around Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Nothing could be further from the truth, the Sahaba of the Lovering who relate that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would come out to them, the Sahaba of the Allah and who would be seated, not a single companion would raise his eyes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and look at him.

01:21:04--> 01:21:26

Not a single one. In the whole congregation, only two people would raise their eyes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they would look at him and he would look at them, they would smile at him and he would smile at them out of the whole congregation, the only two people who did this and who could do this, were his two fathers in law abubaker and Amaro de la when

01:21:27--> 01:21:28

no one else.

01:21:31--> 01:21:35

In fact, I'm going to be the last there'll be a loved one who says

01:21:36--> 01:21:47

he says in a heading, that if you were to ask me to describe the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam to you, I wouldn't be able to do so. Do you know what?

01:21:49--> 01:21:55

Do you know his reason? He doesn't say because I don't remember. Or because I didn't pay any attention.

01:21:56--> 01:22:15

Now, I'm law. So the law says, if you were to ask me to describe the sort of loss of the law, Harley or send them to you, I wouldn't be able to do so. Because I was so over awed by him, that I could never fully Look at him straight and square in the face.

01:22:17--> 01:22:21

I never looked at him properly, to be able to describe him to me.

01:22:24--> 01:22:27

This is the respect this habit of the alarm show the prophets of Allah.

01:22:29--> 01:22:30

True respect.

01:22:31--> 01:22:39

Once Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam there was a bowl of water he offered someone he refused the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told me that I did not obey

01:22:40--> 01:22:45

the law. But he has refused to you except the glad tidings of the Messenger of Allah.

01:22:47--> 01:23:16

The joy of the Messenger of Allah of Musa asurion beloved Nora Basha, the lover and much the water also the law, some of the law it was seldom drank it and poured it over themselves, almost send them out of the love and how standing behind the curtain. She's his wife. And when she heard the Messenger of Allah say this to the prophets a little say this to Musashi, Bella Malabar, she actually called out to them from behind the curtain and said, leave some water for your mother too.

01:23:17--> 01:23:27

So that she could drink it and pour it over herself. And she was the wife of the Messenger of Allah. This was their love, their respect, their reverence.

01:23:29--> 01:23:42

So Allah Subhana, who was the other he even corrected these two great people and we're working on a lot of the Allahumma the only two who would raise their eyes to him and he would smile at him and they would smile back. He would smile back at them

01:23:43--> 01:23:52

when they want spoke disrespectfully and behaved disrespectfully in front of them inadvertently in their in the passion of the moment

01:23:54--> 01:24:13

a law correct them and set to them yeah, you're under the law, but them obeying the law what a suit he was the law in the law Sameera Dean. Yeah, lilina law terrifying was worth assaulting Obi Wan Kenobi, oh, Lika jarba coolibar and Tabitha Armando.

01:24:16--> 01:24:20

Obama leavers, do not put yourselves before Allah and His Messenger of Allah.

01:24:23--> 01:24:59

And be wary of Allah. Allah is all hearing all knowing all believers. Do not raise your voices over the voice of the Messenger of Allah. And do not speak to him loudly as you speak loudly to each other, lest your good deeds perish without you even realizing. Allah wonderworker no matter the Allah, not to be disrespectful in the presence of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaks softly and we'll look at the law. After the revelation of this verse, He said by Allah, from now on, I will only speak to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a companion speaker.

01:25:00--> 01:25:19

speaks in whispers secretly to his friend. And he did that, under the law. And despite his loud, booming voice, he would speak so softly that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would have to regularly Tell him to repeat himself. Can you imagine the alarm being told to repeat what he said?

01:25:20--> 01:25:42

Because the listener couldn't hear him. But sort of last and the last time I had to tell him, What did you say? repeat yourself, because Omar the alarm would speak to him softly after the revelation of these verses. That was a respect. Allah wound hafsa an eye shadow the love of the two daughters of these two same men.

01:25:44--> 01:25:48

Allow warm them sort of team not to be disrespectful to the sort of last

01:25:50--> 01:25:53

alarm told all of the wives

01:25:55--> 01:25:57

to make a choice in sort of

01:25:59--> 01:26:20

a low would always reprimand others even though the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would remain silent. Allah taught etiquette, how to speak, how to address how to behave, how to act, how to conduct themselves, in the presence of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in sort of,

01:26:21--> 01:26:46

in sort of Rajaratnam when some people came, and they wish to speak to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam there was a large delegation, what most of them are non Muslim, a few of them are Muslim. And what do they do the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was resting in the afternoon he was having a siesta. So they called out to him and they said to him, yeah, Mohammed or Elena or Mohammed come out as

01:26:48--> 01:27:20

prophets Allah hi Lee alayhi wa sallam, even though he was resting his Clark, his character was such, so humble, so soft, prophets alone isn't a World Cup, read it himself and came out, not a word of complaint, not a murmur of complaints. He never said anything. Allah Subhana Allah Allah spoke out on his behalf. And Allah said, in the Lithuanian Dona coming wa in Herat, in fact, the whole surah is named after the puja in this verse in the Lithuanian arducam, in wa ala Raja rhotic, federal law

01:27:26--> 01:28:13

down the indeed those who called out to you from behind the chambers, and they said, come out to us and you rose from your siesta and you went out to them a lot. What does the law say of them? A lie so offended by their disrespect to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Allah in the Quran, says, UK for whom they are they don't most of them have no sense they stupid. So you know, when, imagine if someone sees someone disrespecting another in their passion in the anger, what's an idiot? Stupid, has no sense. Someone else might say you don't speak either. advise them explain to them, you should be a bit more respectful. True, that's how it but in this verse, Allah Subhana Allah adopts the

01:28:13--> 01:28:32

former law doesn't say where you shouldn't have called out to him in that manner, you should have approached and respectfully that was not the way to do it in future. Allah says Indeed, those who called out to you from behind the huddle at the chambers of Federal Home lay out beyond most of them have no sense the idiots

01:28:33--> 01:28:36

they are idiots, stupid.

01:28:38--> 01:28:39

Well, in the home, several had data.

01:28:41--> 01:28:57

And had they remained patient until you came out to them, this would have been far better for them. Respect for the messenger of life in every way. Respect comes before reverence. reverence is a grade higher than respect. And when Allah says in that verse are sort of at

01:28:58--> 01:28:59

the top menu below,

01:29:00--> 01:29:23

zero Takeru. So that you believe in Allah and His Messenger, and you support him with the work they do, and you revere him in these obligations. It's not just respect, it's thought even though Peter means reverence of the Messenger of Allah. reverence is a grade much higher than simple respect. We, it's our duty to actually revere the prophets of Allah.

01:29:24--> 01:29:45

Truly, and the Sahaba of the Allah revealed, we cannot reveal him in person. Now, but we can reveal him by revealing revealing his name, his honor, his memory, his teachings, most important is teach how to the Sahaba of the alarm reveal.

01:29:48--> 01:30:00

Autonomous through the McAfee in the 60s of Hitler. When he attended the camp of a sort of muscle alarm, it was symptomatic of a via he went back to the operation he related to the

01:30:00--> 01:30:22

What he had seen, and he said to them, oh my people, I tell you leave him be. I have been to the Royal Courts of Abyssinia, Rome, and Persia, but I have never seen any people. Any surgeons revere their ruler as our or their leader, as I have seen the companions revere.

01:30:23--> 01:31:12

When he speaks, they fall silent to listen, when he commands, they rush to do his bidding. When he performs as ablution. They jostle with each other to catch drops from that fall from his limbs, and they anoint themselves with those droplets. When he spits. They rush forth to catch his saliva, and they actually anoint their faces and their bodies with his saliva. That was a testimony of autonomous robot atrophy. What he saw was remarkable. And remember, this was coming from the Arabs are proud people who never believed in servitude or civility in bearing before anyone, they did not believe in titles. They did not believe in the protocols, and the airs and graces of courts and

01:31:12--> 01:31:51

quarterly behavior. They believed in openness wilderness in the desert. So even the tribal leader, they would never call him by titles. They'd stand square in front of him and address him by his first name, or by his gun. Yeah. That's how the Arabs were such a people who are fearsome warriors who lead harsh, relentless lives. And that was reflected in their attitudes. Such warrior like people, suddenly they've been transformed into these people catching saliva anointing themselves with that person saliva, how could this be autonomous through the thought of he was astounded

01:31:52--> 01:32:09

that the Arabs who were the farthest away from it, they have now become more reverent of their leader, then the Royal Courts of Abyssinia, Persia and Rome, who had centuries of civility, servitude, and such reverential behavior.

01:32:11--> 01:32:55

The thought that he was a stand, because indeed, that was the effect of a sort of loss and the law it was so them had on this harbottle the alarm, there are countless stories of his reverence, indeed, that would catch us alive. his wives would take a sweat as perspiration and use it as perfume for themselves, or send him out of the alarm has heard from behind the curtain, leave some water for your mother to why, so that she could drink on the remnants of Rasulullah sallallahu. It was a limb and she could throw water on herself from the remnants water over a silver lining. So that was a match that was referenced. There are so many stories about the reverence displayed by

01:32:55--> 01:33:40

this habit of the law, to the sort of loss and the law it was. And it wasn't just reference by choice, of course, it was by choice. And but no one can say that. Well, that's something they did out of their choosing. It wasn't expected of them. And law doesn't say that they should do it. No, indeed, it is a command of a law that we as believers, we're not only loved him, we not only believe in Him, we not only respect him, but we actually revere him. Now we can't reveal him in person when we can reveal his memory his honor. His words his teachings is similar. If someone cannot act on the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, himself or herself, that's between them and not law. But

01:33:40--> 01:33:48

then at least they should not dishonor and disrespect the sun novelists Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he of his teach,

01:33:49--> 01:33:50

they should not.

01:33:52--> 01:33:52

Furthermore,

01:33:54--> 01:33:58

one final thing is that in these verses, Allah has told us he man,

01:34:00--> 01:34:14

dorky, reverence, and before reverence comes love, respect. And two more things are left supporting and assisting Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it developed, following and obeying the messenger of love.

01:34:16--> 01:34:18

That's how we cheat. We can't just say we love him

01:34:20--> 01:34:21

and celebrate his love.

01:34:22--> 01:34:26

What kind of love is it if it's without obedience,

01:34:28--> 01:34:36

obedience of the Messenger of Allah is an obligation upon the beliefs. And verse after verse of the court

01:34:38--> 01:34:43

is replete. So the Quran is replete with verses of accordance with verses

01:34:45--> 01:34:59

placing an obligation upon the believers to obey not just a law but obey his son in law it wasn't. And inshallah, because of lack of time I'll devote a topic just to this the obedience of the Messenger of Allah

01:35:00--> 01:35:04

Of course we believe in the obedience of Allah, watts of the obedience of the messenger

01:35:06--> 01:35:57

and also assisting and supporting the Messenger of Allah. That is also our duty and obligation. And that means of course we can't do it now this How about the alarm did it, we can't do it now. But we can assist his name, his memory, his we can assist his teachings, we can assist his son now, and most importantly, we can, by being members of his family, we can assist his family by being of his own, we can assist his oma that is part of the assistance of a sort of lasell ally and he was one of them, we can assist the dean that he brought, that is also an obligation and maybe inshallah I will speak on these two aspects. On another occasion, the obligation of obeying Rasulullah sallallahu

01:35:57--> 01:36:43

alayhi wasallam. And the obligation of supporting and assisting the sort of loss of the law hiding them. I pray that the last panel with the other makers, true and faithful followers and members of the oma have Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I pray that Allah does not make as amongst the stingy, miserly, tight fisted, demanding, entitled ones who do not pay the full price of being members of his own. We expect everything of him, but I'm not willing to do anything in return, or I'm not willing to reciprocate the sacrifice and the commitment and the love and devotion that he showed us. I pray that a last round of makers, true successful followers of his alma, who will be

01:36:43--> 01:37:13

honored with his prayer and his intercession on the Day of Judgment, and who will enjoy the water of his cup from his pool on the day when our no thirst shall be quenched, except with the water given by law. And is it a source of the law?
