respect to listen as a Solomonic to lie about barakato.
Today's talk has been announced as the spirituality
of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Before we continue, let me define the meaning of the term spirituality of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
because it can be very easily misunderstood.
No one can truly quantify and measure anyone spirituality on your last panel data can do that.
So, we can't measure or quantify anyone's spirituality let alone that sort of a sort of law, some that law it was.
Furthermore, when speaking of the messenger sort of ally Lee who are selling them,
we are not we shouldn't think of this as reducing him
to normal person,
about whose spirituality we are
speak and discussing.
the purpose of this or that or the true meaning, and the eventual purpose of discussing this particular phrase and title, the spirituality of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
is the following.
When we hear so many
of the messengers of Allah either
we hear his accounts,
we listen to his Syrah,
especially in this month because we are now approaching the end of the month of therapy.
And traditionally, Muslims have always spoken about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his cedar, more so in this month and others.
When we listen to his chronology of Sierra his life story,
lose sight of certain aspects of his carat. So when we focus on the chronology on the events in Makkah before the hijra of the events in Medina, after the hedgerow
we often speak about the major incidents of his life, especially the battles by the hundreds,
or they be
the conquest of Makkah from aka the Boo unhedged to that excetera.
When we discuss various aspects of his life and character,
we lose we sometimes lose sight of the very personal and individual character of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when it came to his relationship with Allah subhanho wa.
Not the titles that Allah had conferred on him, nor the position that Allah had given him,
nor the love that Allah had shown him, but rather his own
relationship with a law and how he established that relationship, how he maintained that relationship and how he conducted himself.
For the last panel
just as we lose sight of our own purpose in the dunya at times, even as observant Muslims
and I'll give you a very good example Imam Bukhari have to lie in a
house has the most famous collection of headings.
And before I speak of the psyche of a man party, let me say something about the bottom
of your own from cover to cover says a lot. And sometimes it becomes very easy to lose sight of the wood for the trees.
And we focus on individual things, and lose sight of the greater picture. And the urn contains some
stories and accounts of the previous nations a form of profits, and many law firms
and injunctions and prohibitions.
And there are all kinds of rules. And two verses of the Quran
are very interesting.
of sort of, what tokuyama georgianna Fie Illa Thumma to offer golden Epson na casa but
yeah, you have Latina Amanita. Today, intimidating, Ella Hmm, Samantha.
These are two verses of sort of the bacara consecutive.
The second one immediately follows lead first.
And the interesting thing about both of these verses is that the second verse is the longest verse in the poor, and it's actually longer than many sorts.
And the first of these two verses is also unique. So the second one is unique because it's the longest verse in the Quran. But the interesting thing about the longest verse in the Quran is that it doesn't speak about Jin Jin, our hero, the afterlife, the day of reckoning, or the form of prophets, and agents that are tossed around all the previous nations. topics are covered in great detail elsewhere in the Quran. In fact, this longest verse does not contain
any other about
anything, any of the act of worship, from the normal pillars of worship. The longest verse of the program is devoted to the topic of financial transactions of how we trade, how we should lend and borrow, and how we should record these transactions and make receipts when buying selling, and especially when lending and borrowing to and from each other. So the longest verse of the Quran is about financial transactions and recording and registering those transactions.
And there are so it just shows how much the borrower has
throughout the book,
and sometimes we become quite obsessed with these details, we lose sight of the greater picture.
And the first of these two verses, the small verse immediately preceding the longest fairs is unique in itself, because it was actually the final verse of the quarter and that was revealed.
And what is the fact according to many narrations and report and what does the final verse of the headers what the total Gerona fee here the law from a twofer couldn't have seen Marcus.
And fear a Day, be wary of a day in which you should all be returned to Allah,
then every soul will be repaid in full
for what it is,
and none of them shall suffer any injustice. So the final verse of the or am reminds us about our return to Allah, the afterlife, and the day of reckoning and our accountability before our last panel.
And what these two verses talents that yes, once we live in the world,
we are to abide by the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the rules of law are very deep
So much so that they even cover financial transactions, lending and borrowing, buying and selling and making receipts for these transactions, although it's not an obligation, making a receipt, or registering a transaction in writing, despite what the verse says,
is not an obligation meaning this verse media recommends it. It's not an actual obligation.
But the longest verse of the Quran does cover it.
and this is similar to what the whole courtroom contains. When you look from the beginning of the book till the end. There are so many laws that are covered laws of marriage laws of divorce, laws of children, laws of families, inheritance, property, wealth,
laws related to purity, prayer, pilgrimage, charity,
covering almost all religious, social,
and even political and personal aspects of the individual and individuals or communities live. But although the Quran from cover to cover in many places, contains all of these laws, the first of these two verses reminds us that we should never lose sight of the greater purpose. And that greater purpose is
our return to Allah in the hereafter and accountability before.
Similarly, I mentioned that I'll say something about the origin before so he will
insert he horrible Hardy, which is the most famous and authentic collection of Hadeeth. According to the novel jamara.
The whole book contains 1000s of headings.
And from beginning to end, there are chapters and books containing a hair these that cover almost all aspects of a person's life. And many laws are derived from these.
And doctors of religion that really among the scholars and students of knowledge have rehearsed and researched and studied and debated and discussed all of these things
in great deed.
when we look at the first of these, and when we look at the last
column I have
and explained the purpose of the first and the last. The first half of
the book contains so many laws, but the first heading is the heavy part of the law. I'm dealing with the sincerity of intention in the morality near that deeds are only by intention.
And then the final Hadeeth is
there are two
getting Medan heavy Britannia.
There are two words or two sentences, two phrases which are most dear and beloved.
Heavy on the scales but lighten the tongues panel law, he'll be handed some handle like an RV. Now, will Mr have discussed the reason
or the reason why a man will hire you to law he chose these two heavy as a first and last because he is very precise. He is very particular.
So why did you choose this first Hadeeth and the last Hattie accordingly and many of them I have explained that. The reason is that, yes. Beyond looking at all of these laws contained in sahira Buhari,
the two most important things are that one begin and one begins one's journey of religion.
Be mindful of sincerity of intention,
be sincere and remains throughout.
And that ultimately once and what's the purpose of the last Hadeeth or significance of the last Jedi? Is that ultimately, after all of these laws,
after all of these debates and discussions, the most important thing is the vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna the remembrance of Allah and one's personal relationship with Allah subhanho wa.
So in that lines, going back to the topic of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a similar way.
Whilst discussing his Sierra and details of his life, it's very easy
easy to lose sight of his personal piety and spirituality.
And that's something which I would like to share a few thoughts.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not come into this world to establish a kingdom
to be a ruler
to be a lead, yes, all of those things happen. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was destined by last panel with the honor to be a lead and not only of the sama, but the whole of mankind. But ultimately,
what to the last panel with the ANA say to the Prophet, some of them are
very interesting. Again, let's look at the beginning and the end.
One of the first secrets to be revealed
right at the beginning of his prophet
was sort of the Muslim leader, and so too, and another one sort of death.
And in certain Muslim myth, right at the beginning of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is profited.
First Allah revealed,
Arabic Allah de Holla Holla Collinson, Amina.
Now, we often tend to focus on these first verses, and we say, Accra Bismillah weekender, the Hello, read by the name of your Lord, who creates it. And we look at these words and we say, look how much the Quran has emphasized learning and education.
And it's true.
But has the Quran focused on and emphasized learning and education and reading for the sake of reading, for the sake of learning for the sake of education itself? Or is there a greater purpose?
We think that the Quran has emphasized learning and reading for the sake of learning itself.
misunderstood the verse
thereafter, last panel with Allah revealed salt and resentment and solar thermal death.
And in sort of the Muslim minimum, so looking at what is the last panel with Allah say, yeah, you have a Muslim in common Laila in
Soho in postman haka de oza la hora
And then later last panel data says,
with charisma Robic, what the button
Allah says, a one wrapped in blankets
wrapped in a shroud.
Rise up knights, except for very little.
Meaning spend as much of the night as possible.
in prayer in beyond leaving only a little
and then later losses and remember the name of your Lord what what the but then la hit the dealer and
devote yourself unto Allah and utter devotion
and the meaning of Tibet, although it means Devote yourself, where does the word originate from? The word actually comes from separation and isolation. So what light is saying to him is that what the birthday elated the the Prophet of Allah
separates yourself from everyone and everything. isolate yourself and devote yourself to Allah with an utter devotion.
So although Allah subhanho wa Taala told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Arabic Allah, the holla, read by the name of your law, the purpose, even for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wasn't just reading for the sake of reading or learning for the sake of learning, or education for the sake of education. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't have to learn anything. Allah subhanho wa Taala taught him everything.
So for the prophets of the law, it was some of the meaning of reading here.
Isn't reading a script for the purpose of learning, it's actually recitation. It's a recite,
a recital of what Allah gave.
And the purpose was, as Allah says later, yes, the verses also
contain a mention in sort of the Muslim mill of the province and in sort of them with the threat of arising and warning the people and conveying the message of last panel. That was the duty of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we know about that duty, but what about his personal
relationship with Allah of that Allah says,
and devote your remember the name of your Lord and devote yourself to Allah with an utter devotion.
That was right at the beginning of his prophethood, long before
he had a band of followers, long before he did his ultra long before he had a position of power and authority and influence, long before he had any wealth coming to him. right at the beginning of his prophet said, Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah tells him with his MacBook with a bit delay, hit the dealer and mentioned the name, remember the name of your Lord, and devote yourself to Him with an utter devotion, arise at night and pray, devote yourself to standing for long nights and praying and worshiping and then writes at the end of last panel with the ad essays. And this will lie well for what I eat in total on a fee the law here for some big drop because the fill in Hogan at a Weber
according to many scholars, this was the last sutra that was revealed in its entirety.
which I mentioned earlier, in which Allah says, what the Yeoman, sort of the Baccarat hoquiam, to German Fie Illa. And be wary of a day in which you should all be returned to Allah. I said that was the last verse meaning as a single verse, according some narrations, this was actually revealed a few days before the prophets of the La marlink was departed from this world. But ultimately, it's still one verse of a larger surah, much longer surah. But which was the last surah to be revealed in its entirety. According to a number of Roma, the last surah, which was revealed in its entirety, was sort of us
is Agia inositol la he was
what I eat in NASA yet hold on a feeding in half watch, for submit, because the fill in the web, but when you see when the help of a lot arrives,
and conquest arrives, and the reference here by conquest is to the conquest of Makkah in the eighth year of HR.
And you see the people entering into the religion of Allah of word in holds in large groups. And when did this happen? After the conquest of Makkah, not just immediately, especially in the next year in the ninth year of hedger, when delegations came from all across Arabia, to pay homage to the sort of loss of the law it was to them and accept him as a leader and a messenger, and sometimes not as a messenger, but just as a lead.
Because in the ninth yo hedger, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam traveled up north,
and he signed a number of treaties. During his campaign of
some of the treaties he signed, were with a number of Christian Arab Trump.
And they did not embrace Islam, prophets allottee, or some of them, actually signed treaties with them. And they accepted them as a leader of Arabia, and they paid homage and tribute.
But they did not embrace the religion.
One of the leaders of the tribes was called you Hannah, john,
an Arab Arab Christian, he was one of the leaders of the tribes. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam signed treaties with them. This was in the final year in the ninth year of hedra. So after the conquest of Makkah, lots of people embraced Islam, in large groups, some didn't. And especially in the ninth year of hedra. So this is a reference to that, when you see the people entering into the religion of Allah in large groups.
Now the prophets of the Ludmila ecosystems mission has been fulfilled in the dunya. So what is he to do?
What is the last parameter what the Allah say to him
so when the help of Allah has
Arrived conquest has come. Makkah has been conquered people are now embracing
the religion entering into the fold of Islam in large groups when people are have paid homage and tribute to what now sort of last panel with Allah sees for him they're up because
then him the name
him the praise of your law and seek His forgiveness.
Indeed he is the most he is often relenting. Now what do we understand from this verse? What am amble hiding around the law he released, Ethan is he that see that I am to live on bus of the Mercedes
that the season are all of them have Barbara de la, he had a consultative group, he had assura.
And in that, sure are aware that were very Senior Companions, including the veterans of butter.
And they were senior in age senior in position.
These are the most Senior Companions
and see that the alarm surrounded himself with these elders
of the community, elders and age elders of experience, elders in the sense that they were the earliest Muslims to embrace elders, in the sense that they were from the earliest veterans of the battles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And he relied on them, he consulted them. And along with them, he would also include Abdullah hypno, birth of the alario man was extremely
he's actually a teenage and according to some reports, he was only 14 years old, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left this word.
So when the alarm would include him in his Consultative Committee, that consisted of the veterans of Bethel, and the elders of the Sahaba, the law home, along with them, he would have the 1718 year old teenager.
So underlying numbers of the law says that some of the
elders had reservations that why does Why does a meeting mini include this young lad in this group, when we also have children of the same age.
So I feel like my best of the 11 essays perhaps out of the 11 near this sense, this, discovered this and he wants to show
So he says one day, he again convened the group, and he invited me to
and then he posed a question to all of them saying Allah subhanho wa Taala saves in the poor, and then he resigned to sort of the mosque
and civil law he will fit what are eaten naseous hold on the feed in in La Jolla of water for some, because the pharaoh in Karnataka
he recited the verse And then he said, What do you know of this soup of these verses?
So some of the elders they explain that what the surah means.
And they gave the apparent explanation of the verse of the surah which is that when the help of Allah comes when conquest arounds when people embrace Islam in great numbers, then him the name him the praise of your Lord and seek His forgiveness. And some said this, others kept quiet.
Then say that the alarm turned to I'm delighted and I burst of the Allahumma and such an opener, bass, what do you say? So I'm delighted and I burst of the love and Omar said O'Meara Mini, what the surah refers to. And the meaning of the surah is that Allah is informing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam some of his
imminent departure from this world and returned to a lot of his death.
And allies telling him
that your mission is now over.
And now you should prepare to return to
and in preparation for that return to
engage yourself in the vicar of
in the remembrance of Allah, take his name him his praise and seek His forgiveness.
Then Amaro de la Horne said in front of the whole group that I do not know of the surah, except the same as watching.
So he demonstrated to them that I'm delighted that you love them I was included in this committee because of his knowledge of the court.
What concerns us today is that this was the last surah to be revealed in its entirety, according to a number of scholars and indeed, this was towards the end of the prophets of Allah ecosystems live. And the
beginning verses of sudocrem was a middleware at the very beginning of his
And in both the last panel with the Anna Caesar saying,
take the name of your rise in prayer, spend the night in the rebirth
take the name of your role, and right at the end of his life as a prophet, Allah Subhana Allah says the same thing to him.
Take the name of your Lord him his praise, seek His forgiveness, devote yourself to worship. This was what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did, beyond his leadership, beyond his military campaigns, beyond his being a judge, and a political lead, beyond his establishing
the rule of law and the law of the law, beyond
all the details that we are very familiar with, of His love life, this
was his, one of his most, this was one of the most important aspects of his life, and sometimes we lose sight.
It began with this, he ended with this, with the remembrance of Allah, with the vicar of Allah with the worship of Allah with that relationship and connection with Allah.
Allah Subhana Allah Allah employed him to convey the same to the creation. But
ultimately, the greatest devotion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
beyond the Dharma and the invitation and the work
ones to Allah subhanho wa Taala himself in sort of the last panel data says the same thing. And in sort of the same thing, these two students are students of seed, because they are devoted to the topic of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah addresses him
we have covered these sorts in detail, but some of the verses that really matter we'll have a lady there so Gemma with that book alone are gonna want to hide
that will have to hide will not come in and ulaan Surely, the afterlife is far better for you than the first.
And then sort of that initial towards the end, what's the last panel?
for either for the fund slub what you love because, again, favor for when you are relieved, I have your work and your duty.
Then what should you do oh messenger of Allah. This is a direct address to him. The wording is not plural to all the believers, although it also affects us by meaning and by extension, but primarily and originally, last panel, Diana spoke exclusively to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and directly to him for either for that when you are relieved of your duty.
From all of the things, what should you do? funds,
funds of means tire yourself in the worship.
What in Arabic a pharaoh and unto you Lord haste.
be eager tutorial. This one's the life of Rasulullah Salallahu.
eagerness towards Allah subhanho wa Taala zeal to Allah has so much devotion to Allah, The taking of his name, the hemming of his praise. Doing His is the farm are doing is the first season last panel with the honors forgiveness. We learned from many of these recorded by virtually all the authors of the Prophet sallallahu
seldom says that indeed I seek last forgiveness and I repent to him more than 70 times a day.
More than 70 times a day. This was part of his
Rasulullah Hara his Salatu was Salam would remain engaged in the last panel Adana all the time.
At night, the dilemma of the poor and at times during the day, the low of the poor, and at times,
when he sat when he rose,
there are of God,
under as mentioned, for
almost all occasions. Furthermore, when we make the rounds, we like to ask for specific things. And indeed, that's good, there is no harm in it whatsoever. However, one of the interesting things about the law and the law
was that rarely
do you find him praying for anything personal.
In that individual personal things, when we pray, we pray for lots of very specific individual and personal things. We learn from that had that most of the drama of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, most of his neurons were very general and comprehensive.
They were very comprehensive, known as the
comprehensive exams. And they were very general. And this is how the province of the lighting was and pray for himself as well. With general all encompassing comprehensive
Muslim rattler highly related Ethan has so he
from shadow viola, and she says, gun over civil law is the law legal system, you've got a law
that allows messengers the law it alayhi wa sallam would remember Allah at all of his moments in all of his moments, at all times.
And the wording is very specific and accordingly
meaning not just that he would remember a lot all the time.
There's a pronoun
pointing to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam saying he would remember a lot at all his times.
He would remember a lot of all his occasions you will remember loving all his mouth.
And this is probably one of the best translations he would remember loving all his mouth.
And this is why we when we do when we leave the bathroom when we leave the private area.
After answering the call of nature,
one of the sunrises or franak
Mahmud out in Amman Timothy like this, that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would emerge from the secluded area after answering the call of nature, he would say or frolic
your forgiveness of Allah,
I seek your forgiveness. One seeks seek the forgiveness of the last panel with the other after answering the call of nature.
And one of the simplest explanations is that just as a shadow of the law says he would forever remain engaged in the vicar and remembrance of a lot at all times in all of his moments, except for except when he had to answer the call of nature. On those occasions, he wouldn't remember the last panel without either. So it's almost like a lot. As soon as he emerged.
He sought a last forgiveness for not being able to remember the law and engage in his Vicar for that short period.
That is the purpose of saying.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remain connected with Allah so much.
That was his life, Vic de la Riva and what kind of a bad we can't even begin to imagine that the burden of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it's mentioned about earlier, nobody thought he would have the alarm considerations, and it'll be a lot more than said that if the veil wants to be removed, if the veil between us
and the afterlife wants to be removed Muslims
Tina, I would not increase my conviction.
Like the veils were to be removed,
I would not increase in my conviction, meaning my conviction is already at that level. But even if the veils were removed,
the exposure of the other world would not increase my conviction
because it's already there.
If that was the conviction of aluminum body but on the alarm, then what can we say over sort of less.
Sometimes when we learn from the Hadith when he prayed Salah, and most of these narrations are a reference to the Salah, which he led in the eighth year of Hitler, sorry, the Salah, which he led towards the end of his life, not the eighth year, but the 10th year when
his son Ibrahim of the alarm passed away, and that was on the same day that there was a solar eclipse. So he led the solar eclipse. And on that occasion, when he led the Salah
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about Jin Jin and before insula,
veils would be removed before a sort of loss of the law, harmony, you would see things that others could his whole, when we when I say that, what can how can we compare our victim to the vicar of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when we say that he always remained engaged in Vicar, and his life was one full of a bother his a bother wasn't, like, as we think, a series of postures and movements and motions and recitations. His Salah was of a completely different nature, his fasting was of a completely different nature.
So how about the lover and him relate that
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whenever we wanted to see him fasting, we would find him fast. Whenever we wanted to see him not fasting, we would discover that he wasn't fast. What that means is,
if some of us have borrowed the alarm, thought that we want to follow the example of Rasulullah sallallahu.
So if he's fasting, we want to follow his example. But not everybody keep that up.
And that time, some of them felt like maybe, if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wasn't fasting, that would be a relief for us to so that we can follow his example. So he was so balanced and miraculous, that when people wanted to discover him fasting, he would be fasting, when he won't when they want when he when some of them wanted to discover him not fasting, and being in a state of afar, non fasting, they would discover that he wasn't fasting. And the reason for mentioning this particular Hadith now is that the Sahaba understood the alarm and Jose is the same thing about his third Salah. He says, whenever we wanted to find him, praying the 100 Salah, we would discover that
he would be praying, and whenever we want to find that he wasn't engaged in the 100 Salah, but that rather he was resting, we will discover that he wasn't in
his condition was miraculous and mysterious. is a bar that was different. His salon was different. It was different. His fasting was different. To mention something about his fasting remember, how do you relate that these How about all the law?
they saw that the prophets Allah It was almost fasting continuously known as we saw,
in that he wouldn't eat anything. So he, in fact, he wouldn't eat anything at all. So they decided to follow his example.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam noticed and realized this he said to them, Do not do with La, la de la silla, do not do whistle. Whistle means continuation, meaning do not count. Do not
practice or adopt a continuous fast, whereby you don't eat at all.
He said if you do,
the most you should do is until several
so let's hop out of the alarm because they were eager to follow his action.
They said the art of sort of law, you fast always, you fast continuously. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, You emoni europeo your screen, I am not like you, my law, feeds me,
nourishes me, and gives me to drink gives me food to eat and gives me to drink.
You Tony europeo aspd now the meaning of youth emoni europeo a spinning that my lord feeds me and waters me, nourishes me and gives me to drink is not that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to receive secret food. If that was the case, that in the darkness of the night in privacy hidden from other people's view, or sort of learn how to his Salatu was Salam was furnished with a meal.
Then where is the miracle in that know the meaning of youth emoni Europe has been is that without any food or drink, Allah Subhana Allah Allah gave him a unique, special hidden miraculous strength without any food whatsoever. He was nourished and sustained miraculously, when Allah subhanho wa Taala chose to this is why he was able to fast continuously, without interruption without any effect on him. If that was his fasting, that last time, I gave him a certain strength, then imagine his Sala what manner of Salah was it
and he had no reason he had no reason to do. The verse says, seek the forgiveness of Allah. But Allah had already told him the philosophical arguments, but them in them because
so that allow me forgive you, your past sins, and your future.
He has forgiven me and shadow the alarm has said to says, In famous Hadith related by most authors, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to stem for so long at law
in the hodzic, Indiana, that his fields would swell up, his feet would become swell and not too swollen, but it would become cracked.
So she says, taking pity on him, she would say to him, oh messenger of Allah. Why? When Allah azza wa jal has forgiven you your sins. When Allah said live for like a large amount, put them in the mix.
But last forgiving you your past and your future. Then why do you burden yourself in this manner? Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I felt a Kumar abdun shakoora should I not be a grateful servant?
So he didn't do this, because Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was praying for gender or worshipping for gender
or forced to seek forgiveness. Rather, he did this and he continued to do this, because of that unique bond with the last panel with the honor and in gratitude to Allah azza wa jal. This was his. This was his Eva, we've learned from the hadith of gibreel alayhis salaam, that God really came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the form of a man and asked him a number of questions about Islam about a man. And according to the narration of Muslim, the third, the first one first question was about Islam apparent submission. The second question was about Eman, interfaith. And the third question was about ESA. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was asked by God Li Salaam that
what's ESA? So the Prophet sallallahu literally means to do good, what's goodness, but here, it's not just goodness, it's a unique and lofty rank. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied that axon is and then with the lockean nikka da, for England,
Iraq, the axon is that you worship you serve a law, as though you see him.
And if not,
then that he sees you.
Now, for most people,
only the second definition applies, ie, we are talking about the best and the elite, that even they cannot reach that rank, whereby they serve a law and worship Him as though they see a lost crown holder and not with their physical eyes, but rather with the sight of their heart,
from most people, even amongst the elite, amongst the most pious and God fearing and the most conscious
They can achieve is that they worship the last panel with data with the constant conviction and the knowledge and the continuous awareness that the last panel with the AMA is watchful over them and observance of
that ensures that they
observe taqwa for every waking moment, and these are the elites, very few,
very few can reach that rank, but they do some do reach that rank.
Which is of the first definition, that Exxon is that you serve a law you worship Him as though you see.
And it's possible and some do attain it. If some in the Maha Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cannot attain that rank, than what can be said of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam himself
didn t worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and serve him all the time. And remember last panel with the elder all the time, in such a manner
that as though he was seeing a law, he was observant of the law, he was watching one of a law
and that he was he had a constant sighting of a last panel.
From su la Sol de la hora de who was
his son was of the highest.
And therefore, in light of this heady, it can be said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam worshiped Allah in such an constantly remember about that doesn't just mean ritual worship, it means service, and that's for every month.
For us, it would be every waking moment before a suit will last a lot he was it would be even whilst asleep because of the loss of the learning or Selim told him to shut off the alarm, huh.
She said, You're a sort of law, you've just slept. And he said,
know that my eyes sleep. But my heart does not. My eyes do sleep.
In nine, eight, and a man will tell me that my eyes do sleep, they do rest. My heart does not. And the meaning of the heart, not sleeping is not that the heart doesn't rest. That's true for every human being even while sleeping. The heart continues to work. The meaning of the heart not resting or the hearts not sleeping. Is that is one of consciousness that will soon learn today his salatu salam is worshipped. And although he couldn't see the Delia in front of him, the sides of the heart of the civil law, his Salatu was Salam was still
in full scene mode, and was working. And the heart of the soul of learning is that at all Salaam, remained watchful and observant and in full sight of what not the dunya but Allah subhanho wa Taala all the time.
This is why towards the end of his life, was to learn and he said that there was Salam when he was given a choice of staying in the dunya or returning to Allah Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam chose returning to Allah so much, because that was the connection.
The Vicar of a last panel with the adults such In fact, when a law

last panel who was

And this was to do with the
siege of Medina that took place in the fifth year of his law. When a huge army surrounded the city of Medina and laid siege to it, rather than literally surrounded but one of the openings of Medina they laid siege to the city from that angle.
It was a very trying and testing time for the believers and Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whose authority wasn't absolute till that at that stage, there were factions in the city with whom he had an agreement. And as per that agreement, the various factions of the city had pledged that if there was ever a common threat to the citizen, then despite their all their other differences, they would work hand in hand and together to collectively defend the city.
So the province of the lohardagan was seldom on the sensitive occasion. This is, according to one narration, on the sensitive occasion, he sought reassurance from some of those factions in the city, that they would honor their pledge. And then they would join Muslims in defending the city from this common threat. So the profit side of the line, he has some sense of messengers, to inquire from the leaders of this faction, and sought assurance from them, that you will defend the city.
They refused. And they were emboldened
by the enemy outside the city who had sent secret messengers to them, and told them that join us
we will attack from the outside there was a huge arm, we will attack from outside the city, and you disrupt things from within the city. And thus we will crush the Muslims.
So they were emboldened by this offer,
and by the presence of this huge army outside the city, so when the Sahaba of the alarm, went seek that assurance, they insulted them and told them what treaty we have no treaty with Mohammed, we do not recognize any such treaty. So this habit of the Allah and who returned to deliver the tragic news to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now consider the situation.
It was a very difficult and distressing time for the Muslims. And Allah Himself describes the situation
in the following words, that
is our main focus on women as for the minute that will absorb a lot of
water, the moon Avila has moved
to the moon.
And remember when they meaning the enemy, they came upon from above you
and from beneath you. And this is a reference to the enemy, laying siege to the city from one angle, as I said,
this was actually from the north, the Northeast,
laying siege t from above, and the enemy coming at you from below. And this is what this is, where the other threats was from.
from the south, sorry, the Northwest, northeast, Northwest and from the southeast, where the settlements of some of these factions were. So remember when they came upon you,
from above you, and from beneath
what you dissolved within.
And when the eyes became fixed in horror, and in fear, or whenever.
And when the heart leaped to the throat in fear, what there's more to be learned.
And you were imagining all kinds of thoughts about a lot of despair, a sense of abandoned and fear, that alone was going to abandon you will now look a Boolean. On that occasion, the believers were tested, was observed was observed and should either and they were shaken, a great shaking, one can just imagine the plight of the Muslims and the climate of fear and anxiety and terror in the city. If a lot describes in such words, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
receives the sabato the alarm, who delivered to him the message that the other fractions have turned against us, and they have reneged on their pledge, we are now facing a mortal threat.
So the prophets, Allah hiney send them. When he learns of this.
He didn't even learn of it verbally, he waited, he was eagerly waiting for them anxiously waiting for them rather. And when the Sahaba of the lover arrived from a distance, the few that he had sent, they signal to him from a distance by shaking their heads
negatively. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam understood that this faction was not going to help or assist and they had abandoned them and reneged on their pledge. One can just imagine the plight of the Muslims, we can just imagine how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam felt. So this is why I said according to one narration
What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam do and why did he did prophets of Allah and he will send them when he learns of this, what did he do? He lay down on the ground, in Medina, outside on the
rock, he lay down on the hard ground, and he began engaging in the vicar of Allah.
And according to him duration, this is the backdrop to the revelation of this verse, that verily there is for you in the Messenger of Allah, a beautiful example. For one who fears a lion in the final day, and who remembers Allah excessively. Allah mentions this verse in the context of urban conduct,
the even at such a critical juncture,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lay down on the ground,
and engaged in the vicar of a last panel.
A sort of learning his Serato salon would remain engaged in the remembrance of Allah in all of his mouth.
And as I said, we can't even begin to imagine the quality and the nature of his ebba of his worship, let alone the quality of his Vic
is above we, for us, Salah has an obligation
to the extent that
when we have food, a choice of food or Salah
What do we wish to do first?
If we are told dinner's ready, or
and it's time for Salah? Do you want to pray first and then eat or eat first and then pray? Many of us choose to pray for us. Why? Not necessarily because we are very devoted to Allah subhanho wa Taala and wish to engage in prayer and devotion. Rather, our philosophy and calculation is that let me get this out of the way quickly. So let me praying haste and eat at leisure.
And that's why Mambo hanifa Rahim Allah says that
one should eat first and he doesn't just say it to law school, the law it says what remember when he first says something else I'll mention in a moment, the prophets of the law it says that if the food arrives in time for Salah arrives as well, you have your food first. And the reason is, as
it says, You should eat first and then pray later, because I would rather make my food my Salah, rather than my salon my food, meaning
Why do we want to pray first and eat later? Because we don't want to be eating and thinking, Oh, I still I still have to pray. I still have to pray. It's almost like a burden. It's an obligation, but we treat it like a burden. It's something I have to do and get out of the way.
So even once we're eating, we fear that we will be reminded of the fact that we still have to pray.
So our food we're not able to enjoy our food. Our food is plagued by the fault and remembrance and the reminder that we still have to pray.
That's why Mahmoud hanifa says so our food becomes our Salah.
So remember what he says I'd rather make my food my Salah, and my Salaam, my food in that.
I'm praying and I'm looking forward to the food.
So we treat salon some of us, not all some of us treats our salon as an obligation as a burden something to be something to be done to get over and done with and out of the way so that we can eat at leisure.
So learning is that artists and Salam for him, he says, The Audrina COVID-19 fissara but the coolness of my eyes has been placed in Salah.
And in fact the forehead Eve is

he had wives.
He had a romantic and marital relationship with his wives.
But he regarded This is one of the pleasures of the dunya just as he regarded fragrance as a pleasure.
Then he say the third thing of your dunya which has been made delivered to me is Salah. But he describes it as bloodrayne at Pura, taurine, Allah, that the coolness of my eyes has been placed in Salah. Now, before I explain that the meat The question is, how can Salah be of the dunya
we'll be talking about the appearance and this is it. The Sala
the appearance of Salah is undoubtedly from the dunya and for many of us even our inner Salah is still of the dunya before Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the exterior of his Salah was of the dunya but internally low actor. Well, that's why he says well during an aura taurine for Salah, the coolness of my eyes has been placed in cinema. And for him it was a relief. Remember without having to lie, they say relates to Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
one of the Sahaba of the love and the full Hadith is that one of the Sahaba of the Allah said to some people, he said in the presence of some people that I wish to pray
and thereby seek relief and comfort in my prayer.
So some of those who are present didn't understand this and in a way express their the question this saying that how can you say that you want to pray because you wish to be relieved by praise the relief and comfort in prayer. So you said I heard the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say to below the alarm.
Yeah below Optimus sada, what additional obalon give the karma for salah and thereby give us comfort and really, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sought special relief and comfort in prayer. For him that was a coolness of the eyes. This was a life of a sort of law he has so that was a
very deep and profound connection with Allah subhanho wa
Vicar of Allah in a manner that we can't even begin to imagine.
It's the fall in a manner that we can't even begin to imagine about in a manner that we can't even begin to imagine. This was his relationship with lust panel with Anna. In fact, this was one of the most prominent aspects of his character over on a bourbon well beyond some of the other details that are that we are more familiar with and accustomed to. And
we should take
that as an example, and tried to establish a similar rule. Well, we can't even manage something close but we should attempt to follow in his footsteps and try to establish such a relationship with the last panel or with the other, moving beyond the laws of halal and haram and the appearance of religion. unless anyone misunderstand. I'm not for a moment suggesting that these are unimportant.
Of course they are vital.
The laws of halaman halaal are most important. They can't be dismissed, but
they are there for a greater purpose in is important, but not as a golden objective in itself.
The education of religion is important, but not as a goal and objective in itself.
realism is important education is important.
Observing Hillel and highlight important learning about hallowed and important determining heroin heroin is important.
But not heroin, heroin. And the laws are not a goal and an objective in themselves. All of these have a greater purpose.
And that greater purpose is our connection and our relationship with the last panel with Allah and either of him trying to follow in the footsteps of Rasulullah sallallahu. Some of them may Allah has the original grant as such, they'll feel an ability or some mumbles in the manner and he wore a suit in Vienna. While he was in law, the condition will
