Merton Lin Atomy.
Allah Subhan Allah to Allah is saying in the Quran, all Mohammed we have not set you except being a mercy to all mankind, not to the Muslims.
No, they are the mean. All the words to the whole world.
yo la sua to toda
la Khadija Kumara sulan min. And foresee as is in Anna Hema
Holly soon on a
mini naraku for Rahim
Allah subhanho wa Taala is said
and we have seen very, very there has come to a messenger among yourselves as he is in alima and it
it grieves him. It hurts him. It bothers him to see you go through difficulties.
on and then he said, How do you sue? Me so anxious? He is so keen, believe me, Nina for the believers are all for him kind pity and merged
by the non Muslims who are here. Some of them may be a little bit eager to know about this messenger about this man. He said about a lawsuit about him concerning his oma, but what about the rest of the people? He is also a mercy to all mankind.
to the children
and listen to this. Can you say hello, how are you Muslim?
Have you heard of the Long Island?
an hudsonville the Allahu anhu came to the messenger of a law hasn't been a child.
And then the Messenger of Allah He picked up the child and he kissed him
and then inhabits one of the people one of the tough out of
one of the basic individuals who lived in the desert. And then who came to the messenger of the law come up is sort of
on Yeah, Muhammad. Elena, oh, Mohammed came up to us. Indeed, we have our poets and we have our speakers to address you and Allah said in the Medina EULA do Nakamura in Herat,
he says those individuals who are dressing your own Mohammed behind that behind closed doors, they do not have the correct understanding and
the attitude and the arrogance to to address you. This man, when he sort of saw law, kissing this young boy, color in limine, and whether the ash, he said I have 10 children, I have never kissed any one of them.
Never Subhan Allah
never kissed a child and you have 10 of them never forgotten some of the lohani he was sending them. mela
mela yahama you whosoever does not show mercy to the others mercy will not be showing to him. Mercy will not be showing to him. And this is a general term mercy when you're dealing with your family members, he is mercy for all mankind. But you also have mercy for all mankind, because of the law, what he was taught us what to do, how to approach people, how to talk to children, how to deal with women, how to deal with the non Muslim how to deal with animals. So you, if you're not mercy for all of this, then you're not following the footsteps of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam but he may say it's just for his own money, and only for his children, but no son of the last one he was. He
was also mercy for animals. As you recall, in authentic hadith
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he walked into the garden.
Mercy for all mankind. He walked into the garden.
And then salallahu alayhi wasallam. As soon as he walked, a camel walked in ranked in a camel rack to him. And then
the Manhattan gentlemen, who is the owner of this camel, who is the owner of this camel
for conifer terminal and saw a young man from the unsired. He said, O Messenger over law, he is Mike camel, he is my camel. The Messenger of Allah said, Allah, Allah he had healed by him. Don't you feel a loss of Hannah who were to Allah concerning this animal? It talked to me and he told me that you are abusing it overloading it, overworking and you're not feeling well.
Now if the Messenger of Allah is telling us how to deal with animals, emerging dealing with the non Muslims, dealing with Muslims in general, dealing with our family members, dealing with the people who do not know anything about his
animal. Now, a lot of people think a lot of people think that Islam does not care
about these things, but do you know, we all the first nation ever, in the history of humanity
had special department in the government to cater and care for all animals, for blind cats for retired animals, no other nation ever had that mercy for animals. Now in the west where I live,
people think, Oh my god, they is so advanced. They have Association on organizations for animals, animals, right? I'm telling you, this is snom gave the animals their way before the Western society even thought about women being a human.
Also, what if we learn from the mercy of Rasulullah sallallahu and he was so Sallam was
mercy with the people who are under us. People that work for us,
people that came from a different countries, and the people from the country itself, the work under us, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us, because he is the mercy for all mankind. And he sets a lot when he was in them. Do not overload them, do not overwork them. And if you have asked him to do extra work, then help them. So if you have this man who's working for you eight hours a day, and you want him to work nine hours, then you have to help him because in Islam that is not allowed in Islam is not allowed to abuse workers to abuse people who are under you, because his son came as came as a mercy not
as a system that abused or abuses the week.
Now, how does this man sallallahu alayhi wasallam dealt with his own enemy,
with the people
who are eager to hurt him, or eager to do something that is inhumane to him some of the law while he was alone, when the messenger over loss of the lohani he was sending them and you can imagine this little sort of life sitting back, enjoying the cover of his family members. I say sitting behind him, rhodiola Juana and then these people, they came to him, and they insulted the messenger of a lot insulted him.
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he responded in a very positive, civilized way. I say being a young lady, a young, aggressive passion about the Messenger of Allah and the messenger of Islam. She respond back in the negative way. for autumn eyes, our eyes do not talk like this. She said, Well, messenger overload Did you not hear what she what they said to you? He said, Yeah, I said, Did you know what I said to them?
More or less for fishing in?
He said gentleness was never added to anything except a beautifying and gentleness, gentleness was never removed from something except that it made it ugly.
Also, what if you learn
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not eager to destroy people, to destroy nations to destroy civilizations, and to her people rather, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a mercy as we stated. And you can remember this once again. The hadith of eyeshadow the Allahu Allah when she looked at him, he said Yarrow Salalah
then anybody and this was after the Battle of hurt. Did anyone ever Oh, I'm sorry. Did you ever experience any situation like the situation of the day of
four corners summer Mohali, he was
lucky enough to say I really experienced
four new people. The day that I came back from five, the day that I presented Islam to the people have died and they reject.
And I came walking from five with concerns and worries.
And I said I was walking and all of a sudden, God calls me and he says, Oh Muhammad
Allah has heard the call the response of up
on Allah has sent an angel to respond to your call, and to do whatever you asked him to do. This is the mount the angel of the mountains, ask him your request.
And the angel of mountain said, Yeah, Mohammed If you want, I can destroy the people of Makkah. Now keep in mind, they the people that are the people who used to stop the Tao of Islam, they are the people who used to try to harm the messenger overlock. And now Allah is giving an opportunity and saying to him, if you want, we can destroy them all.
Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Nah,
I hope that Allah subhanho wa Taala will produce from their offspring from their children, a generation who will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. These are the enemy of Mohammed sama, long rallies, these are not the friends and the brothers, and the people who wants to live with him civil with no, these are the enemies of the Messenger of Allah, and he is thinking down. He's saying, if I destroy these people, then their offspring will never see the light of the sun. They will never see the light of Islam. No, I will be patient with them. And I hope that their children would accept this.
And of course, their response
was that the people of Makkah accepted Islam.
And their children became Muslims. And because of them, and because of their children, you and I, perhaps we aren't Muslims. There's new individuals who accepted Islam is because of that those individuals and that there are of Navy sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Also, what if you learn
misconceptions about these
You talk to this non Muslim, the first thing that he says to you is, you think we are the evil we are evil.
The next person will say to you thing, we are going to help you think we are walking target. And this is not what Islam came for.
rather Islam came to respect everyone.
See in Islam, we have
and non Muslims.
The non Muslims are three different categories.
And then that you gave him a covenant. You gave him a contract, you gave him a visa to be in your country, your government and might give him an unlock them to be in that Muslim country. That non Muslim called No.
It is forbidden in Islam, to harm him or to bother him.
And remember, how does a man rub the alarm?
How does Oh my man when the messenger of Allaah conquered the city of Mecca.
She comes to the Messenger of Allah I see the audience you said yard I saw a law, even if not only the son of my mother wants to kill a man that I gave him my promise of safety and security. One lady, one single net our whole nation, Nara is not a government. One person gave that men safety and security and say you will be saved under you under my protection.
And then the Messenger of Allah said to that lady, yeah, amen. We will secure and protect the person that you gave him your word.
What if we learn
the second category is a demean
is a non Muslim,
that who who lives with you and he is from the same country.
The same rulings apply on that individual. We respect them. We honor them. And we live with them civil.
The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
said to us
that anybody who harmed and morale head which is the first category, come on visa and Bahati. Anyone who
bothers me, we'll never smell the smell of paradise. Imagine a movement who thinks that he's doing a separate service to Islam by harming the non Muslims who are living in the Muslim country, and also law the Messenger of Allah says to that individual, no, you will not go to Paradise because you have the non Muslim, come if you say hell Buhari, as this is stated in
the third category of the non Muslim
is a non Muslim that is known as
a man or group of people who are attacking you, attacking your country, attacking you personally.
And this, the Messenger of a loss and if you have to fight, do not kill women. Do not kill elderly people, do not harm people in their place of worship.
And do not fight those who are not fighting you. Subhan Allah, this Deen of Islam,
even teaching us how to have mercy, and
with those who are fighting us.
And you'll remember I will conclude this evening
with a story of thermometer been
a man from the Arab who killed some of those companions, the Messenger of Allah.
And this man who killed the companions were captured.
And then they brought him to the messages to the place of worship of the Muslims. And they said, All messenger over law, this is the man who killed your companions, what should we do? He went to him and he said to him,
I said, Man, what do you think I will do to you?
What do you think my response would be? As a mama said, intact, don't talk to them. If you kill,
to differential protection, if you kill me, you kill the man who killed some of your companions. Or if you kill me, you kill a man whose blood would not be wasted, my people will come up to you.
And if you want wealth, if you want me to ransom myself, I'll pay you let me go.
And if you send me free, I'll be grateful to you. And the Messenger of Allah walked away from him. And he said to the people in the masjid, hear him well. Take care of him well, and treat him well.
Three days in a row, with the same adage until Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, I'm gonna
go home, you are free.
And then this when he walked away from the
valley he was selling. And then he came back saying, in the law, we're actually under Muhammad Rasulullah. What is the lesson that we learn from this? The lesson is,
if we treat our enemies like the Messenger of Allah treating them, they will all become Muslims. And they will all be people of an Islam, like you and I, and they will worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they will be the one who's spreading down. I will conclude
one last point.
And this, my brothers and sisters, I'm telling you this though I mentioned this more than one face. I'm telling you this because you living in a Muslim countries
2003 in the City of Calgary
friend of mine caught me because there's a non Muslim in his house. There's a non Muslim lady who came to ask questions about Islam.
So we rushed because we want to give them what we want to give she had.
So this lady, she said, Mr. Reagan,
let me tell you about myself before you start telling me about some because I know everything about Islam.
She said I live in Muslim countries. Now practicing Christianity, not knowing much about the Bible. I learned with Muslims. When I saw them going to the masjid five times a day I get jobs, I get jobs. And I say to my husband and to my children. Look at these people, they they look what they doing. Going to the mercy their place of worship five times a day. We want to do the same thing.
So what they what she did, she encouraged her husband and her children to do Bible study.
She read the
Bible from cover to cover.
She took them to a Bible school every Sunday. She came back Canada, not being satisfied with what she read.
To make a long story short, what if you learn?
everything you said about Assamese, you said about Islam here and the people before you are beautiful, but I will never accept this.
I say Why? She said, because I will never want to be like you. You know what that means?
She said you if I'm afraid that if I accept this, or maybe like some of you,
I don't want to be like you. I want I love Islam that you have in the book. But there is some that I saw in a Muslim country is not what I want to do. Some hands on law, I asked myself this question, how many people how many non Muslim walked away from Islam because our behavior
see brothers and sisters, when you act in front of non Muslim they cannot differentiate between Islam the Pure religion of Allah and our behavior. They don't understand this Deen will always be pure and will never change. And we Muslims can be good Muslims can be excellent moments. Muslims could also be not that much or better, good Muslims. Minus he hurt you. My advice to all of you is live is through your behavior.
Act like Muslims. Because when when you do something wrong, they don't say Ali or sorry, Obama did. They will say Islam is this. Islam said that Islam did this. When you do something good. They will say Islam did this Islam said that. So you are the messenger of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is what I have to send me a last panel with an excerpt from all of us was the parents audible as the advisor for salmonella mousseline? Well, hamdu lillahi, rabbil, aalameen, Sara Marie
de la chef,
and for traveling all the way from Canada for us to be enlightened with his very beautiful talk. inshallah, we'll take a couple of questions since we haven't got much time. And we shall take the question to order first from Mike one from the other side please. non Muslim guests will be given first preference, if there are any non Muslim from the audience from any of the mics, then we will take that as the first question from any of the mics. Anyone from the sister side? Any non Muslim sisters who was was the question? Salam aleikum. wa.
How do I draw to non Muslim that Islam is true, and their religions false without offending the person? Okay, we'll take that question less. First, we're gonna come to
the first question from the
Salaam Alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh. My name is Mohammed masala. I'm from Somalia.
I'm chemical engineer living here in Dubai.
My question to you, brother is how did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dealt with them on Africa in the wisdom that he has dealt with motherfucking Second thing I just want to say to Brother use, that I'm very jealous about the hefty down payment you made for your house in Ghana. God bless you. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
All of us are jealous of brother Yousuf.
in some Hana law,
you only we
see that he planted
this man is in his sleep.
He sleeps on his chair.
This man works
25 hours, eight days a week if that ever existed.
So when you do his job, when we put the effort that he puts forth, then yes, however, the messenger overlord had dealt with the Muna 15
see the messenger Allah subhana wa tada in many places in the Koran. What are we lacking in?
Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned that you you're Mohammed, you have the ability to tell who is a monarch or not, through, the way they talk,
the way they speak the way they carry themselves. And then Alas,
panna wattana told him the lists the names of the monarchy attain. And this was something exclusively for the Messenger of Allah, no one else.
How did he deal with them?
she dealt with them based on what he sees from them.
said about the Messenger of Allah, Allah, your origin and
the most honorable ones who would cast the most disgraced ones talking about the Messenger of Allah. And
Allah law allowed me to finish this man he is a winner of
the Messenger of Allah said no need him.
When the people want us to have a came back from the Battle of the book, and 80, of the Muna 15 came to the Messenger of Allah apologizing, that they couldn't make any do to a person reasons. The Messenger of Allah said I accept your apology. And whatever you have inside of you, this is between you and Allah. This is how the Messenger of Allah used to deal with them when I
dealt with them in the similar manner. And he is the man who used to say, could Nana killer come in and we used to rely on the revelation to expose you.
But now ladies, Elena minko, in Nam anara we will only judge you based on what you see from you. So if we see you behaving a certain way that we consider you
based on what you are, if we see you coming to the masjid, praying with you or Muslim men, and whatever you have in your heart is between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now how should we deal as a Muslim with those type of people lack exactly the same way? We rely on what we see.
And we don't dig down.
And we only base
our judgment based on what was apparent to us, Allah Allah now.
Perhaps if you could repeat your question
I still remember the question I can I can answer the question. Okay.
The sisters, the sisters asking how can I prove to the non Muslims that Islam is a true religion, Pure religion without offending them?
I have my own approach. And I think some of the people may agree or disagree with me in your dour unless this is an official stage. I mean, official debate in your dour, never, ever, ever attacked, non Muslim,
never proved to them that they wrong and we write unless they asked a question.
What do we do we present the beauty of Islam?
Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us in the Quran, the Messenger of Allah was very aggressive, criticizing the iris of the machete King, the iris of those people who used to worship them. And then Allah said, What are the single lady in a rude I mean, do you say Do not insult them? Do not criticize them, leave them alone. So what did he do so long while he was sending in return, he was just giving down, showing the beauty of Islam, showing what Islam is all about, showing how we treat people and what Islam says about he after, and this is it. But as soon as you attack him, he will take the defensive stance, and he will defend his religion, the religion of his forefathers, the
religion of his parents, the religion of his community, so we should not attack anyone. They are sensible people, they can understand they can read between the line present pure Islam and leave it to that low Allah one.
We're going to take one last question from the other side. Mic number two, please.
My name is Sheikh Abdullah.
I'm just a student.
My question is, why did Allah send Prophet Muhammad at the last Why couldn't he send him at the first?
Children's questions scares me.
It really does because, you know, they don't filter things. They just say as pure as innocent as you can come up, and it just hits you
see, my young man, a young brother.
Everything that Allah does, he does it through Hickman and wisdom
and that's why Allah subhana wa tada said, What is
Wait hold on a bucket in my neck in Nigeria and fill out of the Hadith.
Allah before the creation of Adam, the first of the prophets, he already told the angels that he will create mankind, people who were the successes of the successes on the earth, that was before the creation of atoms, so the plan was already there. Now why did Allah subhana wa tada chose Mohammed to be last, perhaps as we say in the West, maybe allow us saving the best for last. So the messenger over loss of alone udon as a five the messengers have a lot of top five messengers of five.
And the top of the five is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the Messenger of Allah said, he gave a parable, an example of the province, the messengers who came, and he said the misuse of a law is like a man who's building a house break on the top of another brick. And he finished a beautiful house except one brick. And the people who come around the house they will say this is a beautiful house except the break he says, I am that break. I am the brick that completed the building on is this is the Dean of a loss of Hannah without Allah subhana wa Tada. One of this way. He designed this plan. He planned this plan, and this is what he did. We're proud of Maya.
For that beautiful time spent in doing it with knowledge of the Quran and Hadith.
Every messenger of Prophet that Allah has sent Allah gave him one day
this Deen of Islam, even teaching us how to have mercy
through your behavior.
Oh Mohammed we have not set you except being a mercy all the world
