We have all heard of the Farewell Pilgrimage of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what is known as hydrator Wada.

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

And this was a gathering of 1000s upon 1000s of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It was a culmination of the derivation of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and indeed the sermon that he delivered during this final Farewell Pilgrimage, often referred to as the Farewell Sermon is incredibly important to our deen. But today, I want to focus not on the sermon or the content of the sermon itself, which is very important and it shouldn't be studied and analyzed and applied in our lives. But I want to focus on a particular statement that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made at the end of the whole Torah at the end of the sermon.

00:00:56--> 00:01:37

And I think this is a statement that we may have heard before, but perhaps we don't understand the the true relevance and the importance of this statement. So after the prophets, I send them delivered this Hazza this Farewell Pilgrimage, he addressed these companions, 1000s of companions now gathered to see the prophets of Allah who I knew he was sending them. And he said, You, I share he do mean qumola job. He said, So now that you have heard the message, now that you know what the message is, those who are present here today, they should deliver this message to those who are not here.

00:01:38--> 00:02:26

And it is because the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took this statement, which like I said, sometimes we hear this and we may not understand the importance of the statement, it is because of that statement. And because of the application of that statement, by the companions of the prophets of Allah who I knew he was setting them, that me and you are here today gathered, practicing our faith. It is because they applied that instruction from their Prophet, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that we testify to learn in Allah, Muhammad Rasool Allah, and so that my brothers and sisters, is the status of the companions in our Ummah, because the prophets of Allah who I know

00:02:26--> 00:03:15

who was send them, you have to understand that he was not sent in a vacuum, just as Allah subhanaw taala pick this one man in the middle of the desert. He picked him for various reasons, but he's the chosen one. It's no surprise that the Prophet SAW I said to him, was raised an orphan. It is not surprising that the prophets have a light send them never took part in the worship of other than Allah subhanho wa taala. Throughout his life before the coming of Islam. It is not surprising that the prophets of Allah who I knew who said them did not lie or cheat or fornication, or drink alcohol. That is by design. That is who Allah Who Subhana wa Tada decreed would take the message of

00:03:15--> 00:03:24

Islam and deliver the message of Islam to the world. So that's not surprising. But just as that is not surprising,

00:03:25--> 00:03:56

those around the prophets of Allah who I think who was sending them should not be surprising as well. Because just as Allahu Subhan Allah Allah chose this man several Allah who I knew he was sending them, big homie Sal, Allahu Allah, he was sending them just as Allah chose him. Likewise, Allahu Subhana wa dalla decreed these group of people to be around the prophets of Allah who I knew he was sending them, because it is through them, that the message would have to be delivered.

00:03:57--> 00:04:47

As the prophets of light sending them past it is the companions of the prophets of Allah who I knew who was sending them who brought that message to us. And in all honesty, I don't need to testify to the merit and the honor and the rank of the companions. It doesn't matter actually, who testifies or who says whatever about the Companions, because Allah Who subhanho wa Taala from above the seven heavens has testified to the honor and the marriage of the companions of the Allahu Allah moraine. For example, Allahu Subhan Allah Allah says, che the Shaheed Allahu Allahu La ilaha illa who that Allah has, has testified. Allah has witnessed that there is nothing worthy of worship other than

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

Allah Allah testifies to his own oneness, the oneness and the dual hate of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then Allah Who Subhana wa Tada says, well, Mala Iike and also the angel

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

Because bear witness they testify to Allah in the in the law. And then Allahu Subhana wa Taala says something very interesting, because after mentioning himself, Jana Allah, and after mentioning the mala Iike, the angels, Allah Who subhanaw taala says, Whoa, no lion, and the people have knowledge and understanding. And the first people of knowledge and understanding in our own are the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. You see, when Allah Who subhanaw taala testifies and bring someone to testify about the greatest thing of this message to hate the Oneness of Allah who Subhan Allah, Allah, Allah brings the one to testify who is the greatest and that is Allah Himself.

00:05:46--> 00:05:59

Che the Allahu Allahu Allah in the Haydn Allah. Allah bears witness, Allah testifies that there's nothing worthy of worship other than Allah. And then Allah mentions in that same category, the angels

00:06:01--> 00:06:49

and we understand the rank and the honor of the angels, we understand the rank and the honor and the merit of Gibreel either his salaam, but who is mentioned directly after the angels, it is the people of knowledge and understanding, which is the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhanho wa taala, referring to the Companions, first and foremost says Kuntum, higher Almighty no creature three nurse, you are the best of people raised for humanity. This Ummah begins with the companions of the Prophet sallallahu. Ana he was sending them so when we hear this message, we know that this is first being referred addressed to the companions of the Prophet sallallahu

00:06:49--> 00:07:00

alayhi wa sallam come to HydroMet in Oak Ridge three nurse Morona Bill Maru, if you attend how no one cares what took me no one a biller. Allah says you are the best,

00:07:02--> 00:07:52

the best to be brought about for humanity, the best among the best nation. Why, because you enjoying that which is good, you stand up for that which is right, you encourage people to do that, which is right. But then how nine and one come and you take a stand against evil. You call out evil, and you identify evil, which was the which was the message of the prophets of Allah who I knew he was sending them, to identify for us to clarify to us to explain to us that which is good, and that which is evil and bad. And so what makes this emigrate? What made the Companions great is the fact that they enjoined the good, they encourage people to do good, they stood up for the good for what

00:07:52--> 00:08:35

is right for what is honorable for what is just, and not only that, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu I knew he was setting them took a stand against evil. When they saw wrongdoing and evil and oppression taking place. They took a stand against it. And then Allah says what took me no Nabila and you believe in Allah because this a number of Americans who are now here in Mancha, where does it come from? Who defines right and wrong? Who defines good and evil? If you leave it up to human beings, everyone can come up with their own definition of right and wrong. And we live in a world where people actually do that. People define for themselves, what is right and what is wrong.

00:08:35--> 00:09:16

I think that this is okay. I think that this is wrong. But the companions of the Prophet so by sending them the tariff, we are given to them by the prophets of Allah who I know who was sending them was to take everything back to their faith to their Eman to their connection with Allah Who Subhan Allah, Allah. This is why Allah says what took me no no Biller, and you believe in Allah. And that is why when we hear the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu I know he was sending him talking about taking a stand against evil the prophets I send them says Mandela, amen. C'mon Koran, a year who be God, that whoever amongst you see something wrong or bad or evil taking place? You should

00:09:16--> 00:09:33

stop it with your hand. And we know what this means. We This means physically stop it. For me, let me stop there. And if you're not able to do that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us for yoga, Yoruba Lisanna, then they should change it with their tongue.

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

And we know this means that if we're not able to physically stop evil from taking place, we at least speak out against it. We at least tell people that what is happening is wrong. This is wrong and evil and so on and so forth. And then the prophets I send them said for Ilam you're stuck there for beer can be and if you're not able to do that, then you should stop this evil with your heart with Veronica Agha

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

put an email in the box and send them said that is the weakest of faith. And what does that mean? Well to stop evil with our hearts, it means that in our hearts we have a desire to end this evil we have a desire to put a stop to the harm that is taking place. When we lose that my brothers and sisters, then we lose everything. Because if we cannot identify in our hearts, if we cannot, at least in our hearts, take a stand against evil than adopt please there is nothing left of our iman and that is why the prophets I send them said without legal other orphan Iman.

00:10:37--> 00:10:40

That is the weakest lowest type of iman.

00:10:42--> 00:11:17

That is something that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Allah he was sending them learned from the Prophet sal Allahu Allah, he was sending them. Allahu subhanaw taala once again about the companions of the Prophet sallallahu I know he was selling them says what Kedah Lika Jana come on mutton was Hatha, and we have made you the wasa people the Wasatch nation. This was Sophia has many meanings. But from among these meanings is that it is balanced. It is just it is honorable.

00:11:18--> 00:12:06

It is moderate. It doesn't go into extremes, but also was Sophia here is outstanding and best. So Allahu Subhana wa Tada is saying okay that Erica Jana como Mata Wasa, we have made you the best outstanding nation. Lita Kunal Shuhada, Allah nurse, so that you may bear witness be a witness over mankind while you're Kunal rasuluh, Aleikum Shahida, so that the messenger may be a witness over you and you know, the prophets of Allah who I mean he was sitting them himself explained to us what this verse is referring to. And the Hadith about who said liquidity or the Allah who I mentioned, Simon Buhari, the prophets of Allah and send them tells us of a very interesting incident that will take

00:12:06--> 00:12:28

place on the Day of Judgment. The prophets I send them he said, you know, Hanuman tianma. Know Allah, His Salam will be brought on the Day of Resurrection. And he will reply and he will say, let Bayko aside, aka Rob, he will say I am here to respond to your call. I'm here to be obedient to Your order, my lord.

00:12:30--> 00:12:33

And then no holiday Sudan will be asked, hello, beloved.

00:12:34--> 00:12:40

Have you delivered the message? And you will say none? Yes, I delivered the message.

00:12:41--> 00:12:49

And then it will be sad. Leo Murthy he to the people of New Hydra he Salam hull Bulaga calm.

00:12:50--> 00:13:00

Did he deliver the message to you? And you know what the people of New Hydra he said I'm will say they will say ma Tana Mina the year

00:13:01--> 00:13:22

that no one came to warn us. Can you imagine? New Alayhis Salam 950 years, TAO to call me Nayla one Hara I call my people day and night, 950 years new Haile Salam makes the hour to his people. And as people come on the Day of Resurrection, and they will say my autonomy, no, the

00:13:23--> 00:13:27

No one came to warn us. And so

00:13:29--> 00:13:45

New highly, he said, will be asked for Manish hydralic. And so who will testify for you? You said you delivered the message but who will testify to you? And actually in another narration, the narration mentioned you must know the email.

00:13:46--> 00:14:06

It mentions some additional details. It mentions, you know, the similar Hadith, but the prophets I said it themselves in that hadith that a prophet will be brought on the Day of Resurrection. And some prophets they will have a few people with them. Some people will have one or two people, some people will have more, and the prophets will be asked

00:14:07--> 00:14:09

the same question.

00:14:10--> 00:14:31

Did you deliver the message? And the Prophet will say yes. So in the first Hadith, new highly Salam says yes. And the people of New Heights and I'm similar are asked, Did he deliver the message and they will say, No, no one came down, No one warned us. And then Allah Who Subhan Allah to Allah

00:14:32--> 00:14:42

as new hire his Salam who will testify for you. And you know what, no, Allah He said, I'm says, he says Mohammed will moto.

00:14:44--> 00:14:56

Can you imagine Subhan Allah, no highlight his Salam. When he is us who will testify that you delivered the message he says Mohammed somebody said them and his ummah.

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


00:15:00--> 00:15:08

Why the head miss I sell him let's just let me let me ask you. Have you seen a new hire his salon?

00:15:09--> 00:16:01

Did you? Did you receive His message? Are you alive during his time? No, I didn't see him. I didn't I didn't I didn't I who am I to testify? We would think, who are we to testify? For new highly Hasan? Even the process Elon himself did not meet he wasn't alive at the time of the Prophet of Allah he said. So why? And so in the Muslim of Imam Muhammad, it mentions that that the people will be asked that the Omar Mohamed Salem will be asked Did he delivered the message and they will respond the Omar Mohamed Salah will respond and say yes. And they are then asked why am I in Macomb? How do you how do you have knowledge of this? How do you know and the OMA of Muhammad sallallahu

00:16:01--> 00:16:10

alayhi wa sallam will say Jah Nabi SallAllahu Allah he was sending them for Akbar, Rana, a new hand, but beloved

00:16:13--> 00:16:35

he will say the people will say, our messenger came to us Gianna Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for about an hour. And he told us, He informed us he taught us that no Hala he Salam delivered the message for the Navy. And we believed in Him, we believed in this message.

00:16:37--> 00:16:59

So the companions of the prophets, I tell them, they are being taught here, to bear witness not to just the message of Mohammed by sending them but the message of all of the messengers and prophets of Allah who Subhan Allah to Allah. Because even though we didn't see no hana his Salam, it's not about belief with sight.

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

Because let's just be real, sometimes you can see something, and that doesn't necessarily mean you will believe it.

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

There is a difference between believing something when we see it and believing something with our heart submission and surrender. Sometimes we see something with our own eyes, and we don't know what we're seeing.

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

I don't know if you've ever been in this instance, where you're holding your keys in your hand. And you ask like your husband or your wife, and you say, have you seen my keys, I can't find my keys anywhere. And then like your husband or wife says they're in your hand, or the person who wears glasses, and he puts them on top of their head, you know, you put your glasses up like this. And then you're like, I can't find my glasses. This person may even look in the mirror, and they won't see those glasses. They're seeing but they're not really seeing.

00:17:47--> 00:18:34

That's different. Seeing doesn't mean anything. It is Iman submission and surrender to the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. These are the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allahu Subhana wa taala. Again, another verse, another another place in the Quran, where Allah tells us about the merit and the honor of the the rank of the companions of the prophets that I send him. Allah who has a pattern of data tells us of what took place after the Battle of ahead. We know that the battle of art was difficult for the Companions, we know that they had taken much loss, we know that they were they were they were broken, and they were beat.

00:18:35--> 00:18:57

It was difficult for the companions. But what happened after that is that the prophets I send them told the companions that they need to go out again, as they come home, you know, barely scraping by and there's maybe spirits are down maybe maybe we would think their spirits are down and now the person who says we have to go out again

00:18:58--> 00:19:23

because boorish is gathering the mushy corner gathering, and Allah documents this in the Quran, and Allah mentions what happened with the companions. In this moment. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Alladhina ster Jebel Allah he will Rasul those who answered the call those who responded to Allah and his messenger member I did my job

00:19:25--> 00:19:30

after they were struck with the after they were struck with injury.

00:19:32--> 00:19:59

And now, Allah says, Allah testifies that they responded to Allah and His Messenger, after they had suffered as we said, a lot of loss during the Battle of Allah says after they suffered this injury, they responded to Allah and His messenger and that Allah Who Subhan Allah to Allah says, Allah then send a woman whom what telco a June Alvin, those who did son after them from them

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

Do that for them and they had Taqwa the fear of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala. The consciousness of Allah submission to Allah for them is a great reward. So Now here Allah is testifying, that the companions of the prophets, I send them responded even in that difficult moment, but it doesn't stop there. Because Allah tells us of the forces that were working against the companions of the Prophet, Allahu Allah he was sending them. See, not only was there physical warfare taking place against the Companions, there was psychological warfare taking place as well. Because there was an there was an there was an element in society, known as the hypocrites, and these hypocrites, were waging

00:20:44--> 00:20:54

psychological warfare and Allah subhanaw taala tells us of what they said Alladhina called Allah who will nurse in the nurse Alpha Jamar function whom

00:20:55--> 00:21:32

Allah tells us that these companions are those people who the hypocrites said to them, the people have gathered against you, meaning they're strong, they're mud they have that you it's going to be difficult for you to come out victorious. What the Bush said, what the hypocrites are telling the Companions here is that you just came back from battle and you we lost lives, and you're feeling tired and injured, and so on and so forth. And now the forces are gathering against you once again. Now imagine being in that psychological state where now you're already feeling loss.

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

And then you have

00:21:35--> 00:22:13

your suppose it brothers in Islam telling you, that you this is not something which is doable? How are you going to vent? How are you? How are you going to win this? How are you going to win this victory? How's this victory going to take place? They're gathered against you and they said, Fuck showhome you should, you should, you should, you should fear them. And that Allah has federal data now, once again tells us of the state of the Eman of the faith of the companions because when they heard this, they didn't go step aside and say, You know what, there's something we really need to think about. We really need to consider whether we're willing to put our life on the line once

00:22:13--> 00:22:37

again, we really need to think about whether this is a winnable battle or not. Allahu Subhanallah data tells us that when they were told that the people have gathered against you so feared them, what did it do to them for the homie man? It increased them in Iman and you ask yourself, my brothers and sisters, what is that type of Eman to begin with?

00:22:38--> 00:23:12

It is a it is a very high level of iman to put your life on the line for Allah and His messenger. And then on top of that, when you're asked to go out again, when you are being told that people have gathered against you and not your response is in fear. Your response is an increase in Iman and this my brothers and sisters is the Sunnah of the faithful, the Sunnah of the believers that when they are faced with difficulty and hardship, and they have to bear it if for the sake of Allah who subhanaw taala it only increases them imagine.

00:23:14--> 00:23:57

You want to see a modern day example of this. Look at your brothers and sisters in the hodza right now, look at your brothers and sisters in versa in this very moment as they're being slaughtered as they're being bombed as they're being killed as our children in Gaza are being slaughtered and killed and maimed. What is on the lips of the believers in Gaza and Philistine? Do we find them to be afraid? Do we find them saying you know what, it's time to give up? It's time to retreat. You know what, maybe we should leave Gaza, because we're being told that this war is gonna continue. And we hear Israeli officials keep saying that the goal is to wipe out the Palestinian population. The

00:23:57--> 00:24:19

goal was to evacuate the hodza they're being told this over and over again. What is the impact on the people of Gaza? The impact is for the home Imana. It only increases them in Eman and they say as Allah tells us that the companions of the prophets I send them said we're calling who has been Allah.

00:24:20--> 00:24:27

Allah is sufficient for us. One there are men who are killed. And Allah is the best protector

00:24:28--> 00:24:59

doesn't matter. There are those telling them you need to be afraid for our show home in the nurse of a gym owner calm the people have gathered against you. There's no way there's no victory to be had here. My brothers and sisters, when we hear this statement, know that this was the statement of the hypocrites at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And that's why it is not only Huzzah. You look at any part of the world today where you find Muslims going through difficulty and

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

hardship and oppression and whatever they are facing things that are let's just be honest sitting here in America are really unimaginable to the vast majority of us. You find Muslims anywhere across the world, weakening in their Iman

00:25:19--> 00:25:38

do you find them losing faith? No, the only thing we find, whether it be HERSA whether it be Syria, whether it be Kashmir, whether it be my Enmore whether it be our Uighur brothers and sisters, whether it be Sudan wherever you want to look in the world,

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

the only thing we see is that there Iman gets stronger and stronger and stronger.

00:25:46--> 00:26:39

That is the path of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah one ayah later tells us and this is a lot of it is for our benefit Allahu soprano to Allah says in a methodical mushy upon, that is the she upon you have with her our he makes you afraid of his allies, Fela Taha for whom will have phony in control meaning do not fear them. Do not fear the allies of the chiffon rather fear Allahu Subhana wa Taala if you are believers, this is the Eman Olivia Rubba This is the man that the prophecy send them give therapy to the companions with to surrender and submit to Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala above everything else. This was a terrible idea

00:26:40--> 00:26:51

of the prophets of Allah who Allah He was selling them for the companions. Allahu Subhana wa Taala says when Medina Ermanno waha Giroux wa Jaha do feasable Allah those who believed

00:26:52--> 00:27:06

and they made hijra, they migrated and they struggled in the path of Allah Allah subhanaw taala will Medina oh, we're not sorrow and those who gave them help and shelter and the two parties here are the MaHA Joon and the unsought Allahu Subhan. Allah to Allah says,

00:27:07--> 00:27:13

Allah hula Iike whom will move me know how far they are the ones

00:27:15--> 00:28:04

that are true believers. And once again, we see here Eman being tied in with sacrifice Eman being tied in with a type of upbringing that a person is willing to submit and surrender wholly completely to Allah subhanho wa Taala will Lavina Amano faith and who were her Giroux were Jaha Doofy Sabine Allah and we ask ourselves our brothers and sisters, where is this in our own mind today? And once again, we find the answer in the people that are oppressed in our Ummah today. We find them following in the footsteps of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I want to move on before my time runs out. And I know I'm almost out of time. We've mentioned I heard from the

00:28:04--> 00:28:44

book of Allah who Subhan Allah to Allah. And I'm telling you, this is just a sampling of the ayah for Allah Who subhanho wa Taala mentions the rank and the merits of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu I knew he was in them. But let's talk about the Hadith of the prophets. I send them the Sunnah percent of them. As you all know the famous Hadith mentioned in the site Hain in which the prophets I civilized sent them said Jairo. Nursey currently, the best of people are my generation, some Medina, yo Luna home, some Medina, yo Luna home, then those who come after them, and those who come after them. I want to share with you perhaps a lesser known Hadith of the prophets, I send them

00:28:44--> 00:28:54

also found in the Saudi hain, the hadith of Ernesto the Allah who I'm in which Anasazi Allah Who says the prophets I send them was with his companions one day.

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

And the janazah came by

00:28:58--> 00:29:08

a funeral came by and some of the companions, they identified whose janazah this was, and they began to say good things about this person.

00:29:09--> 00:29:15

And the prophets I said limb says one word. He says, What Yeah, but

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

it is necessary.

00:29:20--> 00:30:00

And they don't say anything. And it says some time passes, and another janazah comes, but this is a janazah of a person who is not so good. And so some of the companions mentioned that this wasn't a good person. And the process had them once again says one word. He says whatever but he says it is necessary. It is required. It's hard to translate that it is necessary. And then Anna says are a model the Allah who I'm asked the question, which we're all asking right now, where he says, a yellow suit Allah Melaka but what is required or what is necessary and the prophets

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

Otherwise tell them he says this was a person with Natoma, they he hired off for what Yeah, but now hold Jana

00:30:09--> 00:30:22

the process and that said this was a person at NATO no Hira that you mentioned you mentioned him in a good way you mentioned good things about him and Jana became necessary for him. Well had

00:30:23--> 00:30:32

a need to Allah He shall Ra. This is the second person is the one you mentioned the bad for what Yeah, but Laguna

00:30:34--> 00:30:38

and then the Hellfire became necessary for this person.

00:30:39--> 00:31:21

And then the prophets of Allah who Allah him, send them says something amazing. He says, Unto shahada, Allah, He filled out, you are the witnesses of Allah who Subhana wa dallah upon Earth, speaking to the companions of the Prophet salallahu Allah, he was setting them and this goes all the way back to what we were talking about in the very beginning of this talk. And I'm gonna build my roof. We're not here in one car, and joining the good and forbidding the evil or taking a stand against evil, but first a person has to be able to identify good from evil. So it was the tetapi of the proxy, send them the education of the person sending them that allow the companions to recognize

good as good and evil as evil. I'll share with you one more narration I promise I'll close after this inshallah to Allah. This is a Hadith mentioned Sahih Muslim of Abu Musa luxury, in which he says, funnily enough, Maghrib ma Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, We prayed salata, Aisha, the ASHA prayer with the prophets I send them and then some of us we said that perhaps we should just wait here in the masjid.

00:31:53--> 00:32:27

Sorry, they prayed a McRib. So Lena and Muslim ma Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam they prayed Maghrib with the prophets, I said them and some of them said perhaps we should wait and pray I shared with the prophets and satellites in them. And so they waited. I shall time came the Prophet sallallahu Sallam comes out of his house and we know the living quarters of the process and then we're connected to the masjid. So the part said I'm gonna walk directly into the masjid. And so if I sell him comes into the masjid, and he sees his companions, or the Allah or I'm home, waiting, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:32:28--> 00:33:13

he says Mazel Tov ohana. He says, you're still here. And they said, Yes. Because we prayed McCurdy with you, and we decided to wait until forgotten Aisha so that we could pray I share with you. And he says, I sent him a subtheme. He said, You have done well and you are correct. And so they pray I share with the prophets I send them and the story hasn't really started here yet. This is the point of emotional archery. He mentioned that the prophets Allah I send them he says for Rafa who in a summer the prophets I send them raised his eyes or his gaze, basically he looked up at the sky. And now you have to remember this is nighttime, there are stars in the sky. And, and by the way, it was

00:33:13--> 00:33:41

a luxury he says about the pastor Salem cathedral, Pharaoh rasa Sabha, this is a normal practice of the present seldom that he will look up at the sky. And so they say we're with the present him and we notice him looking up at the sky. And after contemplating for some time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something very interesting. He says a new job. Amana to Lissa

00:33:42--> 00:33:54

for either the habit in new job at the cinema to it, he says the stars are like the protection or the security or the source of security for the sky.

00:33:55--> 00:34:43

And if the Veda habit in new Doom, if the stars are gone, then what will be what is promised that will be fall the sky will be fall it and some of our scholars who explained this hadith they say what this seems to be referring to it Allah has hunted down in those best is the Day of Judgment, that if the stars are gone, it means disguise in trouble and everything will fall from there. Right and then the prophets of Allah winding him send them after reflecting upon the sky and looking at the stars. He mentioned something else after that. He says Well, Anna, Amana to lead us heavy. He says I am the we can say security or protection for my companions for either the hub to us Hobbema

00:34:43--> 00:34:59

to I don't, if I am gone or when I am gone. What is meant to be for my companions will be for my companions. And our scholars say that this seems to refer to the fact that as long as the Prophet sallallahu sallam was

00:35:00--> 00:35:45

There, there was no fitna that occurred amongst the companions. But there were some trials and tribulations that took place after the process and then passed away. And then the prophets of Allah who Allah who sent them says was happy. Amana to the Almighty. He says My Companions are the security or the protection for my mother for either the US hobby at her alma tema to I don't if the one the companions are gone, what is supposed to befall my ummah will be followed them in our scholars saying that we see this happen, that as the generation of the companions left, we saw sinfulness and transgression come out that was not there at the time of the companions of the

00:35:45--> 00:36:31

Prophet sallallahu. I knew he was setting them we saw changes to the beliefs of Islam, new practices coming about that weren't there during the time of the companions of the prophet to send them meaning they held the door, they made sure no one could come and bring something new into this Deen of ours. No one could invent something new. And when that has gone, when the companions are gone, then we will see things before this Ummah that did not before the Ummah before that, and our scholars say here, this tells us of the merit of the companions and the place of the companions in our Ummah, that today, as we seek to reconnect with our deen as we seek to reconnect with Allahu

00:36:31--> 00:37:11

Allah subhanho wa Taala in these times of confusion and difficulty and chaos and immorality, and the confusion between right and wrong, who do we turn to? What do we do we turn to the heroes of Islam, amongst them, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu I knew he was setting them, we ask Allah Who Subhan Allah to Allah to allow us to follow the Sunnah and the way of the prophets of Allah who I knew who was sending them and the guidance of the companions of the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah who sent them Allahumma Amin, we ask Allah Allah subhana wa Allah to unite us with the companions of the prophets of Allah who I knew he was setting them on the Day of Judgment Allahumma Amin Harada Allahu
