Today's topic is about leadership. Again, a huge topic. But as the Arabic saying goes, mela Eudora kulu la yusaku. That means you cannot do this entire it shouldn't be left in its entirety. And Allah blessed me with a broad voice. So let me share with you a little bit of what I have.

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

My dear brothers and sisters, by the mothers and fathers,

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala sent us to be

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

trendsetters

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

and not followers,

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

centers to be demonstrators,

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

centers to be

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

leaders.

00:00:47--> 00:00:52

And everything I said prior to this particular statement substantiates what I've just said.

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

And this is prevalent in the life of the NBA he was Salatu was Salam.

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

And especially the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

he was Salatu was Salam

00:01:07--> 00:01:10

came to change the norms of people.

00:01:11--> 00:01:22

They were worshipping idols, and associating partners on to Allah subhanho wa Taala. They came to lead them out of darkness and move them into the sphere of light.

00:01:23--> 00:01:42

They were leaders, they were trendsetters. They weren't mere followers. We just said You're right. As part of this is to be the best and understand that you're right. of being part of this code base to be a leader is to be a leader.

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

It is your right.

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

And you will be questioned about this right?

00:01:49--> 00:02:19

From for Allah subhanho wa Taala senators Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and revealed to us Elko to teach us how to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that we don't worship Allah subhanho wa Taala how we want to teach us how to be wealthy citizens of our communities and contributors to every environment that we are in. Because this is the reality of the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his message.

00:02:20--> 00:02:31

We were sent to set the trend of tawheed and submission to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. As was the reason behind the sending of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:33--> 00:02:38

He was sent salallahu alayhi wasallam to people

00:02:39--> 00:02:57

that were not leaders, even though they thought they were they were deceived leaders because all they were doing really even though they lead their tribes that they lead their clans. All they did really was follow the way of the four factors. So were the leaders or the trendsetters, or were they blind followers.

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

They thought they were leaders but they were deceived.

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

And this concept of Allahu alayhi wa sallam being a leader is established in the Quran, and is established in the countless examples in this era.

00:03:14--> 00:03:22

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not only come to make us 10 centers and leaders in matters of this world.

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

But as well

00:03:25--> 00:03:34

as with matters of the Hereafter, for he taught us how to worship Allah. And he taught us how to be with our wives. We know the famous hadith of Alice, in the

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

US even Malik Pharaoh Heroku

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

Heroku

00:03:41--> 00:03:42

what

00:03:44--> 00:04:01

he said the best of you are those that are best to their families to their wives. And I have the best of you all to my wife. And they are the Hadeeth he taught us Allahu alayhi wa sallam, how to be with our parents, how to be with our children.

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

We know how he stood up for his daughter Fatima

00:04:08--> 00:04:12

and how he joked with the young boy when his bird passed away at date.

00:04:14--> 00:04:14

Yeah.

00:04:16--> 00:04:28

Matthew islandwide codegear young boy Oh Father, he's a young boy not even married yet. What happened to new boy this bed he he eased his hurt.

00:04:29--> 00:04:42

And we know from NSE but magic we don't understand money used to greet a young dentist to say this is what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to do. So he taught us how to be trendsetters with our young when the police were burying their daughters alive

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

and treating their families as commodities. He came to transect with the Porsche including their wives as part of the inheritance that I also answer so much buddy, you will inherit my wife after I die. He came to teach us how to be trendsetters with regards to religion

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

trips with our wives. He taught us how to be trendsetters with our communities, how to be selfless. When

00:05:09--> 00:05:12

they lived amongst a calm a nation that was selfish.

00:05:14--> 00:05:19

We know how it was freeing slaves with his wealth in Islam.

00:05:20--> 00:05:46

And how the Sahaba would donate and donate for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And how the outside welcomed the mahadji route. They didn't say that's not my problem. These people come from a faraway land. We don't know them. Now. They welcome themselves listeners. And if they could share their wives they would have they even wanted to offer half of the businesses to the mohajirs in

00:05:47--> 00:06:33

Islam, okay, but selflessness to a people that were selfish, it changed their paradigms and ways. It added context in their lives. Islam didn't come with the treasures of this world, but it did. It didn't come with the treasures of the world, that the non Muslims considered treasures. It came with the treasures of this world that a person who believes it alive the last day considers treasures. It didn't come with financial standing and material well being this kind of content, but it came with context. It came to add context in our lives. It taught us how really to spend our wealth, and how really to spend our time and how really to behave with the different entities of our in our lives,

00:06:33--> 00:06:45

the different people around us, the different environments that we experience. And it also added context with regards to the human being and his or her creator, Allah subhanho wa Taala
