The talk today is titled lessons from the final sermon, or the sermon during the farewell hedge Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam conducted many sermons during his head during his Hajj. And these are his advices. And instructions are documented in many
heading in many head, but there was a sermon that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam conducted on the day of Africa, that famously became known as the final sermon. And it was a speech that deserved to be written with gold ink, and everything that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, deserves to be written with golden ink.
My dear brothers and sisters during the 10th year after his euro
and in the best days of the, the first 10 days of the ledger, which we are about to enter upon, if not already, or if these days have not already begun.
And more specifically on the ninth of the ledger, which is known as the day of our of
our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
delivered that sermon that was and will always remain a charter of universal values for eternity.
And as I said earlier, we have many narrations regarding the different sermons. And we also have many narrations regarding this sermon, which we have called the final survey, we have a Heidi in the books that are considered to be the books of the car,
as well as a heavy in the sun and compilations of Heidi,
and there's a famous Heidi, which you all should know. And that is the hadith of jabya rhodiola. What is a Muslim, and this hadith describes the Hajj of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, from beginning to end, from beginning to end, and even in this Headey there is mentioned of some of the advice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam during the final sermon, and perhaps maybe the longest mention of the sermon is found in the Hadith recorded by Imam Ahmed is Muslim and Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah knows best I have for you a compilation of advices that I will read out and share with you all today and then inshallah we will go through these advices and deduce some lessons
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day of arafa on his mount,
he addressed multitudes of Sahaba some of the scholars say that this speech was addressed to 114,000 sahab
Allahu Akbar 114,000 people
were present, when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to seven and this is a huge contrast to the 313 that stood plus or minus that stood
on the battlefield, during the Battle of better 114,000 have been documented to have heard the seven and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam eloquently spoke. And at the end of the sermon, he raised his finger to the sky.
sought a witness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. That he conveyed the message that he conveyed the message, the instructions of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, that which Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah commanded him to convey, he sought witness from Allah
Allahu Allah. He sought witness from Allah that Allah you bear witness that I have done, what was upon me to do. And it was then that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah revealed an ayah and I, uh that will be read till the Day of piano. And that is when Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed leiomyoma Kemal Tula coup de la Koo Weitzman to early Mati warabi to la cual is la
de la, Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed
and Yamamoto local Deena come back today your religion has become completed for you what to alikum
later Matthew and the Fave of Allah subhanho wa Taala has become completed upon and that Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen Islam as your religion as your religion.
This is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala has favorite.
Now, this doesn't mean that Ursula from Allahu alayhi wa sallam came with Islam,
and that Islam is the youngest of all religions. Rather, all the messengers of Allah, Islam.
The theology of the message of all the MBR la Hema Salatu was Salam was exactly the same.
was exactly the same, from the first messenger Lu Halle Salah.
From the first messenger, Allah Subhana whoever Allah says, while frd
illa pomi on fire Lancome ear and boo,
Allah tells us about Nora, and the message that he was sent to us. And Allah says that he was sending to his nation and he said to them, worship one Ummah, there is no other Allah and God worthy of worship besides Him.
And this message was the same with all the MBR AlLahi wa Salatu was Salam. Yes, the fifth, or the jurisprudence, differed from profit to profit and Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals with divine wisdom for certain laws.
It's from Allah wisdom that they exist at a certain time with a certain group of people.
And those laws are abrogated and changed or new laws are revealed during a different time with a different group of people.
Right, this happened,
but to prove what I am saying, regarding all the messengers of Allah coming with one message or coming with Islam, and coming from one source, the scholars have assumed will they have an entire discussion related to
the lows of the previous prophets? Do they apply to us or not?
The laws of the previous prophets do they apply to us a shadow woman Atlanta, helluva Sharon Lennar, this is what they This is the topic of discussion and the correct opinion and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best is that yes, the laws of the previous prophets are our laws as well.
With two conditions.
The first condition is that the law is mentioned in our sources. And the second condition is that our sherea has not abrogated those laws. So if I'm also Hannah, who were to Allah in the Quran, or Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the Sunnah, tells us about a law that was given to a previous Prophet, then we know that that law was given because our sources are unchanged. And if our Sherry R has an abrogated that practice, then that is evidence. There is evidence to deduce, to substantiate a law in Islam.
That Islam was not a young religion. It was the only religion sent by Allah subhanho wa Taala submission to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In the moment that you live in and we discussed this during our first talk when we spoke about the general implication of the term Islam and the specific implication. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed this is an amazing idea. And again, all the ayat in the Quran. Amazing
The previous nations wish that Allah Subhana Allah revealed this ayah to them. So Pamela, to Pamela, for in the hadith of Barak even she have, he states that Omar kopparberg, Yamaha and said that he was visited by a Jewish man.
And the Jewish man said to him that there's an idea in your book, had it been revealed to us we would have considered that day when that idea was revealed a day of love
to be envious of the Bahamas, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, when it was for them to accept the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam for he was the brother of the Prophet, and their prophets commanded them to follow the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam as well.
So this is what they said, that hadn't been revealed to us the day it was revealed, we would have considered that they do have.
So this is the other
part even she had luck, or May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us diligent,
where we are proud to live Islam.
And we thank Allah for Islam. And we consider Islam the greatest thing in our life. Many a time we ask someone what's the greatest thing in your life and every thought comes to his or her mind besides the fact that I am Muslim. And Allah has guided me to Islam to Panama, as the revert Muslim Allah.
I was just discussing with the brothers the other day about a female revert from Holland
who read her first Salah in the masjid.
And she said to me,
is the Salah in the masjid correct. And I said why? And she said to Pamela, that I read Salah to Buddha and the Buddha's Salah only lasted around 10 minutes
is this correct?
And I said, Yes, this is fine, as long as the fundamentals of Salah were observed and this is fine. I said, Why does this confuse you? She says I don't know maybe I am making a mistake. Because when I observe Sonata it lasts about one and a half hours long.
sapan of law one and a half hours. Why? And she burst into tears saying when I put my head on the ground, I find it impossible to raise my head from the ground that I'm 60 something years old. And all these years went by when I never stated to Allah subhanahu wa Tada. I don't know how long I have left. So I find it difficult to get
to Panama. Look at this appreciation of the deep
this appreciation of the deal.
Another river tells me that she reads the Sierra of the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and she she is in tears and she's crying and she's telling me that will Allah love me ever loved me as he loved them?
That I read the things that they did. And I I know I don't have the abilities to do what they did. Will Allah ever love me as he has loved them? Please answer this question. How many of us read the Sierra of the companions and tear for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala like this genuinely that Allah What is wrong with us? Our hearts don't feel
this Eman is not
lit up as it should be. That reverts are doing practices that we should have been doing for years. What is wrong with us? That's Allah subhanho wa Taala LSA is my job because
what is put you in a deception of your job? Who is Kareem and generous? What has put you in a deception of Allah and Lady horlock He is the one who created you for so work
and he shaped you
and he straightened you.
What has put you in a deception of Allah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala grant with the understanding, really May Allah make us diligent Muslims. And
now regarding the sermon or seventh of a line or children of Adam to appreciate the eloquence and diligence of the message, completed during the pilgrimage of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I want to read out a translation of the version that I have for you. And then inshallah we will piece it with the letter Anna. There's so many there's numerous lessons that we can gain from it. But we are confined to sticking to time today. We can't go over time yesterday. We we broke the barriers. We broke the barriers yesterday. We are confined to
Time. Thus I have expected five lessons and not to sixth one insha Allah that I will share with you that I will share with you now also we're going to read this in the English language and the eloquence of it in the Arabic language is lost. When you read it in the English language the English language is a weak language in terms of its ability to capture the emotion and eloquence of the Arabic language and this is well known this is well known and perhaps Allah subhanho wa Taala will bless us all with the Arabic language and bless us all with the ability to read it one day in the Arabic language in the words that also the masala Allahu alayhi wa sallam used when we addressed
this to have
after praising Allah Subhana who were to Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the people, O people,
O people, lend me an attentive ear.
Now somebody might ask very quickly, that we have a microphone here, that's amplifying my voice. How is How did 114,000 so However, here are some of us have Allahu alayhi wa sallam on the plains of Africa, when he was on his mouth addressing them? This is a question that comes to mind. And the historian say that they had these colors that were placed at different portions, or different segments of the of the lines.
Like how we have in Salah. So when the mom says Allahu Akbar, a cola in the middle will announce the third wheel so those behind him can hear. So this is how the message was being conveyed to everyone. So Pamela SubhanAllah. Look at the ease that we have today. Right? Look at the ease that we have today. And look at the backwardness in terms of religious progress that we have in our lives, a lot of the stack, a lot of stack. So he said to them, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year I shall ever be amongst you have
mentioned how emotional that is to hear the person who you love. Say, I don't know if I will be with you next year. So he says Allahu alayhi wa sallam therefore, listen to what I am saying to you very carefully, and take these words to those who could not be present here today. An invitation to
take this is a command. Take these words to those who cannot be present here today. And this is you and I are servants of Allah. No Children of Adam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never forgot about us. When he stood there many, many centuries ago. He never forgot about you and I Allah. Allahu Akbar. And how quick are we to forget him today?
He actually said in his speech to the Sahaba that take it to those who are not here today. And they will obviously relate these words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to those that they taught the sermon to and would tell them as well, that take this to those who are not here today. And this is a chain reaction. This this sermon exists with us today. 1000s of years later, Mahatma how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was selfless. He loved us. On his deathbed. He's, he's crying out to allow for his own that you and i, you and I are servants of Allah.
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He announces one day how He loves to meet his brothers.
He loves to meet his books.
supposed to have a love for him said
we are your brothers?
And he said, No. You are my companion.
I yearned to meet my brothers. That's That's us.
I yearn to meet my brothers, those who will come who would not have seen me and would not have witness the revelation. But they will believe in me and declare the oneness of Allah Subhana who have those are my brothers and how are you going to meet them? Lots of Hannah who Allah gave us with him in China
and allow us to meet him on the day of a ama and make us from amongst those
that drink from his blessing hand from his house on the day of Try not those who are turned away by the angels. And when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cries out and says these are my people. He gets told that you don't know what the doctor will not protect us all.
He says, Take these words to those who could not be present here today. And then he said Salalah alayhi wa salam O people, just as you regard this month, will hijack and this day, the day of our of her
Lissa tea the city of Mecca as sacred, as sacred, as holy, just as you do this, thus regard the life and the property of every Muslim, as sacred, and as a sacred trust
and return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners, and hurt no one, so that no one may hurt you.
And remember, that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that he will de take you to account for you.
So Pamela, what an amazing opening.
He says, God, Allah subhanho wa Taala has forbidden you to take usury and interest. Therefore, all interest obligations, shall hence forth between your capital, however, is used to keep you will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity. Allah has judged, that there shall be no interest, and that all the interest due to above or below, shall hence forth beware.
Beware of sharepad
for the safety of your religion,
he has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in the bigger matters.
So be aware of following him in the smaller battles.
Or people, it is true that we have certain rights with regards to your female, but understand that they also have rights over you.
Remember, that you have taken them as your wives only under a trust from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And with the permission of Allah Subhana who are to Allah.
If they abide by your right, then to them belongs the right to be fed, and to be close.
To them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. These are from the rights of our wives, as the Sharia has also said, a right over us that we shall to them is up from the rights that a wife enjoys in a marriage which Allah subhana wa Taala has placed over a spouse. Then the Sula sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, do treat your females well your spouse's well your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with anyone of whom you do not approve, as well as to never be unchaste
Oh people listen to me in earnest. Worship Allah, perform the five daily prayers fast during the month of Ramadan, and offer these occur and perform the Hajj if you have them.
All of mankind is from Adam and Hawa
an Arab has no superiority over an Arab, no does not have any superiority over an Arab. White has no superiority over black. Nor does black have any superiority over white, except by piety and good action.
Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim, and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood, one brotherhood, nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim, unless it was given freely and willingly.
Do not therefore, do an injustice to yourself. And remember, one day you will appear before God, Allah subhanho wa Taala and the answer for your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.
After I am gone,
oh people, no prophet, or apostle will come after me. And no new faith will be born this reason well,
and therefore all people understand these words which I conveyed to you and I leave behind two things.
and the Sunnah. And if you follow these, you will never, ever go astray.
All those who listened to me shall pass on my words to others, and those to others again. And it may be that the last ones understand my words better than those who are listening to me right now directly to Panama, to Panama, it may just be that you and I understand these words better than those who heard these words from the mouth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi. wasallam is Allah who opens the hearts towards understanding His revelation and the Sunnah is from the revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
He then said, be my witness, yeah, Allah, Allah, that I have conveyed your message to your people. So Pandora,
this is it in a nutshell are servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam, amazing, and amazing eloquence, and amazing, brevity, and an amazing conciseness we Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah make us follow us of this message, and decree us to be what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the year after me.
Now let's try and traverse through these lessons together. As I said, I have five lessons for you. And not a six be the length that we'd be lucky to me.
The first message that I would like to share with you and there are many from what I've just read, but the first of the five, oh servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam, is the lesson related to the preservation of life. And this act actually being sacred. This act actually being sacred.
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was an amazing teacher, amazing teacher. In 23 years, he changed a peninsula
from the darkness of schilke
and low self esteem
and warfare over pettiness
to a guided nation
in 23 years, in 23 years old, I understand how amazing sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was,
right? Today we've seen nations that have lived for decades in darkness, and attempts to change these nations have been met with utmost revolt.
And decades later, they exist in a worse a darkness than they existed decades before. Contemplate and ponder over the civilizations today. civilizations today, right? Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in 23 years took them from the lowest of the low to the best of the best that yes, they weren't the best of the best. They weren't the best of the best today we say are Maribel Barbara Viola one.
And we are amazed by him. And he was a man who said before Islam, he would build his idol from dates. And when he was hungry, he would eat it.
This was the situation but after Islam.
He was a man that when he walked a path, she upon would run away and quickly take another path
to Pamela Bella, by the testimony of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam
Shea upon Salah AppEngine after he sees Omar and shape and gets scared that perhaps this man will convert me.
Right? Or perhaps Omar will make shape and observe salah and CRM and become a believer.
So he trades another part. This was Omar, but before Islam, he was somebody else. And that is where he will pop up robiola one when Palestine was freed in his reign, and he was walking to beat the locals. And he got off his mouth and he placed his slippers underneath his armpits and walked intubated. Look, this was so heavy with him said yeah, I mean, why don't you change your stature. You are entering upon people that are loads and kings and they have a specific way. They have a specific way to power up Yamaha and turn to him and said
If it was other than you Who said this?
You would have been dealt with with the dealing of Omar. If it was other than you who said
because we know our motto was a straight person wouldn't tolerate this mujer Bella, right as we say in the Arabic language, your strength, candidate direct upon the hub, and this is why Chopin was scared of him. This is why sharepad was scared of him. We know Omar when he accepted Islam, and he announced or before Islam, he was the one who came up with the suggestion that anyone who accepts the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the leaders of the tribe should inflict punishment upon them, open punishment, so that anyone who flirts with the idea of Islam would become deterred. And Omar
needs to carry out these punishments. He would lash lows from his people from his tribe that accepted Islam. And one day, I'm not sure if I said this to you before, or in another talk. One day he was with a close friend of his and he saw this friend of his
in distress. And Omar was wise he was a man of writing and that's what
we do after the Islam of oma, Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a visionary. He had a vision.
That's why he may do our former, because he knew that Islam of Roma would help his vision, which was Islam, breaching the four corners of the world. And how many states came under Muslim control during the reign of Allah. See, the vision of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi. wasallam never did anything.
As a fruitless exercise, as a fruitless exercise, everything he did was a mission. Within the framework of his vision, he never wasted time.
There was a substantial reason behind it. And that is why he made do out for Omar instead of somebody else.
We must have a vision brothers and sisters, in our lives, a vision with regards to our families, a vision when we have an institution and organization, Islamic organization, or whatever it is, you must have a vision, what is the end that you want to see? And how is what I'm doing now going to drive me to that particular end? This is important. Today, we find ourselves doing 101 different things, and we do not become fulfilled. Why? Because there's no clarity behind why we actually doing it. Even when we get married. We choose our spouse without having
substantial credentials that we stand by before we choose them, because we don't know who we are. And we don't know who we're not. This is it? We don't we haven't understood who we are. We don't know where we want to go in life. We don't know how we want to attain our agenda. We don't know the world we want to see the day we are on our deathbed.
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew the world he wanted to see the day he was on his deathbed. He wanted a world where Omar was a Muslim
and played a formidable role in Islam and its spread.
And that's a lecture for another day inshallah I have a talk on visioning that I did in the UK inshallah it will come out and you can listen to it with me like that.
So Omar, if you hop up, he meets his family sees him in distress and as a man of perception. So he said, it's as if you are flirting with the idea of becoming a Muslim.
So he said, Yes. He said, Yes. He said, Yes. But then I will have to face you.
And what do you say to him? and said to him, that then I will lash a man I respect
that, yes, you will face my punishment. But I would be afflicting this punishment on a person I respect a person who stands by his principles. So hammer be Allah Allah. Anyway, we digressing a little bit, but if this is nice to mention, this is nice to mention, because we're talking about Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. And what an amazing teacher he was, and how he converted an entire region in just 23 years. And I want you to pay attention to his amazing form of instruction, the prophetic methodology in teaching here in this heading, we know that they were tribes of warfare, and wars would erupt due to pettiness, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to make them
this issue of a life and it being sacred and they
Being a pianist to preserve it, he seems to them.
Oh people do you know this day that we are experiencing right now?
They knew, because they value the day of arafah. Do you know the month that we are experiencing right now?
They knew, because they honored the month of them hijack. It was sacred to them. They never did anything to violate the sacredness of the day of alpha, or violate the sacredness of will hijack. And he said, Do you know the city
that we are in. And he knew that they held macdrive high regard, and they would never do anything to violate the sacredness and the holiness of Mecca. Thus, he said to them, just as you would never do anything to violate these days, because of the level of sacredness that you hold these days at. Understand, understand that a life is sacred just like this. So Pamela, look, how he how he presented the information to them, that there's let's not mince our words here. And let's be appropriate with the instruction, just as you would never violate mocap and never violate
the ledger and never violate the arafa never violate the life of somebody else. Never violate the life of somebody else. And this is from instructions of fishery are all servants of Allah for Allah subhanho wa Taala and I said what to do and Prosecco and do not kill yourself. And Allah says while I talk to the left seletti have Rama la Ellerbee and do not kill
enough a life
that Allah subhanho wa Taala has made forbidden for you to do so in lab in half, except if there's a Sheree
based permissibility in doing so. And this is not for anyone to discuss. Rather, it's for the hacking, or the leader of the Muslims in an Islamic State. There's no vigilante justice in Islam. There's no vigilante justice in Islam, there's those who practice this vigilante justice, they need to take heed of this message of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Because the only life that can be taken is that which is dead with the permission of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And there's an entire constitution in the Sharia, that needs to be followed before and instruction of permissibility can come about for this life to be taken. So this is from the teachings of our
Sharia. And this is from the lessons of the final sermon. Thus, despite what the media says all servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam, and despite their attempts to persuade the masses against the correct beliefs of Islam, we should never ever forget our values, and the promotion of our values. We must promote this final sermon, and the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and never ever become confused or in doubt regarding the values of Islam, regarding the values of Islam. May Allah grant us the understanding. I mean, the second lesson or servants of Allah, is the lesson of social equality, and brotherhood and sisterhood. This was manifest in the
sermon, because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there is no superiority of an Arab over an Arab and for an Arab over an Arab, or for the white over the black, or for the black over the white, except in Kapwa, and God consciousness, Allahu Allahu Akbar, and this is a reality. This is a reality, and something we must remember. Because today, whether we like it or not, this tribalism, and racism exists to a certain degree in our life will not protect us. It's always good to deny it.
But that doesn't hide the reality. That doesn't hide the reality. The reality is that it exists. And brothers and sisters, Islam came to abolish this because the Arabs were tribalistic. And Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed
in the fall of
Minda, Corinne Walter, what's your neck from shuru bow waka in lei y. Lita.
Lita out of our law says we created you from one male and one female. And we made you into different tribes and ethnic backgrounds. Why? So that you can recognize each other? recognize each other. Imagine if everyone looked the same. They had the same eye color, the same eye shape, the same face shape, the same nose shape, the same color. When you looked at somebody you'll say oh, I'm looking at myself.
Boring. It's boring, isn't it? Sometimes we go to a we eat, especially the students, if you're at university and they serve the same meal every day, what happens? See that we need change. It's getting monotonous here. We need some change. Right? multi choice, right? We want to have options to choose from. Right? Right. So imagine if every one looks the same.
It would be boring. Getting married would be so easy. It wouldn't be a journey. Because there's nothing it's not a Jamie anymore. All the females look the same. Choosing This one is like choosing that one. How boring would life be? So I'm also Hannah, who at the LSE is Lita out of EU so that you can recognize each other. Then Allah revealed the yardstick which you and I should use to differentiate between ourselves and Allah said in a Croma Kumari de la he that the most honorable of you, with a loss of Hannah who are to Allah is the one who has the highest level of taqwa and God consciousness, the one who has erected the strongest barrier between them, and the punishment of
Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the yardstick of servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam. And you know what, you know what? Allah didn't give any one of us a cup one meter, that we can look at and see and judge one another, we will only know this on the day of piano. So who are we today to be critical of one another, in terms of
ethnicity, in terms of country, in terms of language, in terms of educational background, who are we to, to this unite ourselves based on these
petty values, when Allah subhanho wa Taala has set the height of our values and that is, only on the day of Bama we will know when we are brought to task and account in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it is only then that we will know who is better than the next.
How many times brothers and sisters have we heard a parent tell their child
that if you marry this girl,
or if you marry this boy,
then never ever come to my grave?
The strongest of words? Why this person, dear parent, is of high Islamic character. Why would you say such a statement? And you get told that no, because this will be a disgrace to our family.
a disgrace to our family. Because these people in terms of our tribe are considered the sweepers allow them to stack along the standard. Right, this is what the youth review based on what they hear from their parents will have some kind of way to enter. Yes, it's one thing to discourage your child from marrying a person because of real values like true in compatibility, or lack of religiosity. But it's another thing when they have religion. And we shift aside the instruction of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and become an obstacle in their path towards completing a Sunnah because of racism we almost have had with Allah protect us. So the final seven are servants of Allah,
dedicated itself to the abolishment of racism, and judging one another based on their ethnicity and tribal background. We are servants of Allah, I want oma and together upon the greatest bond and link and that is the link and bond of Islam. Again, may Allah subhanahu Allah grant us we understand. I mean, then we have the third lesson from the sermon. And that is the importance of the preservation of the economy. Allahu Akbar. Look at this, see how Islam is a complete way of life. Right, the sermon has lessons pertaining to you and Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you and the servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you and matters of this world,
because you live in this world. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us in his sermon about the importance of looking after the economy. Less in the sermon, he spoke against interest. And thus in the sermon, he spoke about zeca because as we said in our previous talk, Zakah and interest are not just moral obligations in Islam, right where with Zakat, we it's a pillar of Islam which we have to follow an interest is haraam that we have
To stay away from Yes, this is true. But it's also an economical system
over and above being an obligation in terms of doing it and staying away from it. It's also an entire financial system. Because interest breeds debt, at a level faster than wealth creation. If I borrow money from you, and you lend it to me at interest, and the reason why I borrowed this money, so I can engage in some wealth creation, activity, right? When I borrow that money from you, for me to create wealth, I need time, as well as effort. But when you lend it to me with interest, then you only need time
for your wealth to increase.
So what I owe you is increasing at a rate faster than the wealth that I can create with that which you lent me. Right, you might have led me 10,000 rounds, for example, right? That has to go into my business. And before I can even strike a profit, or even break even I might have to run that business for six months, or three months. Right? We know those who are entrepreneurs. Yeah. And you have businesses, you know, a business doesn't run with a profit from the outset. Right? It runs at a loss, right, and then maybe in the third quarter, or the second quarter, or in month six, you break even, and then you start gaining a profit. Right now you've created economical wealth, something
which has a proper impact on society. But by the time I've created this one real, what I owe you has grown so much,
my 10,000 has become 4000. So the debt creation is faster than the wealth creation, and this is not conducive to the community. Thus, the Sherry I came down and made Reba hora and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about preserving the economy. In his farewell speech before Allah subhanho wa Taala took him to Allah subhanho wa Taala
does take heed of this oh servants of Allah, Take heed of this and thus Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the interest of our best even Abdulmutallab is cancelled, in its entirety. And immediately
we all like grant us the understanding, I wish we could go further. I'm very passionate when we talk about these matters of economics and so on and so forth. I have a master's degree with my master's degree topic was in treasury management from a Sharia perspective. And it brought great insights and benefit to my life in terms of my understanding of the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala as well. And the appreciation of the wisdoms behind the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala haven't been decreed for life today, we always thought that the chi is an obligation, we never thought that it's a financial system as well to Panama, because the economist will tell you that when the rich share their wealth
with the poor, then all the segments in society can engage in buying and selling, not just one portion of society. And the more the merrier, right? If we have an abundant number of people in society buying and selling, then that by default, will translate to an abundant formation of profit and wealth creation, the more people that engage in real activity, real financial activity, this leads to a greater profit creation, right. So when a VA stipulated that he shifting the wealth from the rich to the poor, so that all of the wealth is not sitting with a portion of society, right. And this is what interest does interest sucks the money out of one sector, the real sector, and shifts
it into the financial sector, because for the real sector to make money, they borrow from the financial sector and become slaves to the financial sector for the rest of their life. So the wealth to sitting with one segment of society and this is not conducive to our creation. So allow us to shift it out. So he made the car compulsory. So that 2.5% is moving is being shared within society, number one, and number two, make interest Hara to ensure that this was gonna go back to one particular sector. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us about preserving the economy. And that's lesson number.
Three particles of just making sure you've got sleep
when we have the fourth lesson, and that is the lesson of honoring
the rights of property,
honoring those rights and not usurping community of their possessions. This Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. And he said
People vary your blood and your property and Your Honor, are sacred, as much as sacred, and as will hedger is sacred, and as that you have a second look how he taught them, the level of sacredness regarding these entities based on their understanding of what is holy and what is sacred. And Allah Subhana, who Allah says in his book kulu Amala, calm Bay in a conville balcone that do not eat each other's wealth, upon false, whatever false, we don't do that. Do not do that. So, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us here as part of the sermon, the lesson dedicated towards honoring people's rights and looking after their property.
And then we have lesson number four or five. Five Mashallah, lesson number five Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us here, the importance of honoring the rights of females. And you heard that in a lengthy paragraph in this particular sermon, because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded us towards being kind to them. He commanded us towards looking after their rights, and teaching us that they also have rights. Because before Islam, she was a commodity. Before Islam, she was divorced as many times as is humanly possible. Before Islam, she was traded in inheritance before Islam, she was buried alive. Before Islam, she was usurped of her rights and her
That's what her situation was before Islam. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reminds these people, and us all to be kind to our wives. And as is found in the Sahih, Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam says, also been Lisa, if you are being advised to be good to your fur in the whole economy, for they have been created from Europe, right? Europe, Arab, right. And
we're in the our job she in fiduciary,
Allah, and the weakest part of a rip is the most upper part
for in the hub
to be mobile cassata.
And if you try to straighten this rip, is a great way to interrupt the who any of you live it live, yes,
it will remain
in this curved shape.
For those who have been deciding, thus, you are being advised towards being good to your wife. So
now some men who don't respect the character of Islam, they use this against the females. They say, Well, you know, it's Allah, you are who you are you bent
back. This is not what Islam is saying, at all. This is not from the character of Islam. This is not what Islam is like Islam is saying that she is beautiful, because she has been created this way. Just like the healer is beautiful when it's curved, it's not a defect in the healer in the moon, when we see that with the moon at the beginning of the month, nobody says but our moon is defective. It's it has a problem with it. It's curved. No, we say it's beautiful. That it's like this. And if it ever appears to us straight, we will become worried. And we will say what happened to the healer, because it's supposed to be curved. And this is the same with our females are servants of Allah, and
oh Children of Adam. It's from their beauty that Allah has created them this way.
And if you cannot manage yourself with regards to them, then it's not them who are weak, but it's your weakness.
Plus Islam is teaching us Don't be oppressive and be kind to your females. And this is manifest in this seminar, Casa de la sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Islam came and honored the females. And again, irrespective of media perception and what they're trying to do today, you know, that today the media is trying to define for us, define for us, what is extreme and what is not extreme? what is right and what is not. Right. Right. So this is what they're trying to do. And as we've always said, Hold on to your values, hold on to your values. That which is right and will always be right is that which is substantiated by established evidence, not perception of people, that today a group of
people come of influence and they say this is right, so it's right
Then they leave and other government comes or another group of people come up influence and they say, You know what? That wasn't right now this is right. So now you have to change your perception and say this is right. And if you don't agree with them, then you are extremely alarmist. And then tomorrow, another group come in and say no, that what the first group said was right. So now you have to follow that. But hold on a second here. Just now when I was following what the first group said, that was extreme, and now you're telling me I was okay. They say Yes, you are. Okay. Now, it's extreme not to follow what the first group said. And it's a never ending.
series of confusion, of confusion, and Islam came and established laws through established evidence.
So Islam came and made our females a daughter, and made her a wife, and made her a mother and made her a sister, Allahu Akbar, and granted her a deserving share of the inheritance. And the estate that is left behind by the disease. And granted and stipulated for her protectors and guardians, just as everything that you and I know, which is precious, and special has guardians and protectors.
That's what Islam did.
And that's it in a nutshell. Right? Who today hangs their bank balance outside the window screen, or the windshield of the vehicle?
publicly announce it. Who does that? Who hands it around their neck and walks everywhere as a daily practice with their bank balance?
Or their bank balance? Hanging across their necks? Who does that? Nobody because it's precious to us. We keep it hidden. We have to protect it. Right? We keep it hidden. We have to protect it. Right? Even the females when they go home and they have the gold set, which their husband gave them when they got married. It was the gift? What do they do with it? Leave it lying around? Where does it go into a proper box. And that box is placed into unconvincing a safe, right? And when we travel, we take our gold and go to somebody's house who's going traveling if they keep this for us. Right? Right? Because God forbid Allah protect you for breaking does happen. This box must be safe, right?
Because he's precious. Right? So we place precious things in a box under protection. So in the same way a female is precious. So Islam came and gave her a guardian and gave her a protector and said she must never have to fend for herself. Rather, she's a sister. So her brother will look after her. And she's a wife. So her husband will look after her. And she's a mother. So her children will look after her and she's a daughter. So her father will look after her. And in the absence of all these four entities, the Islamic State will look after, she's honorable. She shouldn't have to do anything that chips away, her honor and preciousness that Allah Subhana who Allah has given up with the
advent of Islam. This is it oh servants of Allah. So we need to live with the correct paradigm today. As I said, the media is trying to streamline us of these precious values that Islam has given Islam said cover why because you precious Islam said,
be a pillar of positive influence in society. But don't forget that you're a mother. Don't forget that. Right? Today, society is trying to change that today. You can't even tell somebody that they're a housewife, you might get a slap with a frying pan might come flying out the kitchen. Right? You say you're a housewife? Because that's derogatory. That's derogatory. The name has been given or has been stepped on so much, that yesterday it was fine. If we will call the housewife today. No, you can't do that. You know, you can't you know, when when a person gets born, you have a birth certificate and the right the profession of the mother and the father. Right? So when, when
the mother is asked, What's your profession, if she's a housewife? She's not happy to write housewife anymore. Right? Because the name carries baggage as they say nowadays, when in reality, it's noble to be a homemaker. So what do we do today? We say okay, if you don't like the name, we'll tweak it a bit for you. We'll say, interior minister.
You see, this is the soil. This is a position of honor. Right? We say domestic engineer. Right now we can come up with the new names of Honor, this is something we can accept, right? But anyway, this is just on a lighter note, to be honest, as you might have heard me say before, I
I call our mothers and our homemakers those who are raising the roof tomorrow.
include them trim tabs, trim tabs, and trim tabs is a name that was coined by Steven Kotler in his book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. But he used it in a particular context, I'm using it in a different context, I'm saying you are trim tabs. Now what's the trim tab? A trim tab is the small rudder on the ship that needs to turn so that the big rudder on the ship can turn which needs to turn so that the entire Titanic into lava. If that small rudder doesn't turn, if that's more rather, doesn't turn, nothing is turning, absolutely nothing is turning.
These are our mothers. And I always like to give the example of Imam Malik Allahu Allah, for he had a mother. Mr. Malik was a rider that turned that caused the ship to turn. But he had a mother who turned first. That was the smaller Radha when she took him to his teacher. And she told his teacher teach you manners before you teach him knowledge. You see the mothers of those days? You see they were proud to be mothers. They were proud to play the role in society that Islam gave them and they never saw any defect in that or today we say Oh no.
Go into the chef and said, here's the boy and this is what I want you to do. Allahu Akbar, right? And Hema medic became the Imam of their lives are on the Mount of Medina, and he was a wrestler that turned and did the world not turn with the advent of Informatica to LA LA. Indeed it did. Well, was Hannah who Allah grant was the understanding. So paradigm shifting, we don't have time to discuss the definition of it, but change our perceptions In short, change our perceptions In short, and allow Islam to govern your perception. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us on
the next lesson are servants of Allah is the lesson of that hour. Because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, What did he say that this message should be conveyed to those after us and perhaps those who come after us will understand it in a way better than those who heard the message. So he didn't hide from his sermon, the importance of our and our servants of Allah and our children of Adam. We need to hold steadfast on to this advice, because we are who we are because of the practice of
the practice of the hour. We have been declared the best nation because of the hour for Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I said
nothing. Ridge Atlas is that you are the best of all nations. Why?
The Morrow Nabeel Maru v. Well, it doesn't hold any code you invite towards good and you prevent from evil.
Were to me No.
And you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala. We are the best of all nations because of this data.
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam ended his sermon, advising towards the practice of the hour, and never ever forgetting it, for our salvation is in practicing it.
In fact, all servants of Allah, the nations before us, were cursed, and doomed because they left out sort of America most of it subhanho wa Taala says
loreena Levy, Nika foamy Bunny,
Isla la Lisa NIDA,
E sub n Mo.
Then Nika. Bhima.
Allah says cursed are those who have just believed from the children of Israel, even upon the tongue of deloading salah and upon the tongue of Isa and in Salah. Why, because they sinned, and they transgressed. They transgressed Allah Subhana who says, can
carry blue lebih sir America
is 70 879 surah.
Allah says they never used to warn against evil.
Evil practices became rife in their societies and they never warned against it. Instead, they practiced it and
what an evil practice they used to do. So they were cursed and doomed because they left this practice of doubt. Today Oh servants of Allah
We have a weird understanding that the only people who need to engage in that our other scholars, that if I want to observe that I need to go and become a graduate from a doctor or from an Islamic University, or some form of Islamic institution, that the hour is only for the scholars and this is incorrect. Take that understanding and place a big red X next to it. Because there are our servants of Allah and all children of Adam is the prerogative of everyone who says La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said ballyhoo
that convey something from me even if it's one ayah Yes, you have to invite to knowledge not to ignorance. And as empowerment Buhari Rahmatullah here, LA, he has a whole chapter in his city called Babel, the enemy, only when I'm in the chapter of knowledge before speech and action. Yes, this is true. But how are you saying, We totally ignorant? There's nothing of Islam that we know, is this what we say? If you know something, and you know that you know it, it's your job to invite it.
It's your job to invite to it. Because the right of Islam is to learn. And the right of learning is to act. And the right of acting is to propagate an invite towards it. And the right of this entire process together is to become more humble to Allah. This is what worship does. It makes us more humble. This is what the pious before us used to say. And we can observe that our in many forms, people say, Well, you know about a public speaker, I don't know how to present the message. Yeah, Kareem?
Are you kidding me?
In colloquial English, as you say, Are you serious? There's so many ways in the century that we live in, that we can use to practice that. Today, we live in the age of technology of email,
and WhatsApp. Right, no more, what's up WhatsApp, right? And technology and posts and brochures, and so on and so forth. There's so many ways you can be a day and then inviter to some of the teachings that you know of Muhammad, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Right. And so think about this, sometimes it's from the hour from the hour is, is placing at the bottom of your email, some striking message of Toshi, for example, or some striking message of goodness.
At the bottom of your email, that's it at the bottom of your email, that whoever this email goes through, they'll read you don't know someone might be affected by it tomorrow. And at the end of the day, it's not for you to convert anybody. It's for you to convey the message Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not commanded to convert this guidance is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. This at the beginning of every speech we say whoever Allah guides, land can misguide. And whoever alarmists guides and then can guide but it's your job to convey this convey. When we make the important metric converting, we stop giving the data all together. Because when we doubt our ability to convert, we
leave the means of conversion altogether. And the reality is most of us have it was never our job to convert. It was our job to convey. Right?
For example, you might have a surgery, you might have an office, it's enough for you to put some pamphlets at least at the reception with a clever striking message were you created in play?
What is the purpose of life some message that causes someone to think this is that one? This is our right? So don't run away from your obligation or service online we can become a better online, we can become a better online if we all together practice this data within our remit and abilities. We Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding one thing, brothers and sisters that I forgot to say when we discussed this whole concept of brotherhood is which I want to say before I end off I am ending up is this whole concept of us being an Omar and Omar.
Right Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if we analyze deeper in this sermon, the Summa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us that you know what, when one person feels hurt, you should feel hurt as well irrespective of the country, irrespective of the language, irrespective of their ethnic background, irrespective of their tribe irrespective of their skin color.
And when someone from the oma
someone from the oma
is blessed with something, become happy as well and celebrated,
and be happy for them, irrespective of again, their color, or the ethnic background, or the language, or the country, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam has said that Islam has brought you together upon one brotherhood, and one sisterhood. And this is the reality or servants of Allah. This is the reality or children of Adam. Islam has taught us that we have a link far stronger than the link of blood. Today we always say this is blood.
Yes, blood is a strong link. But with Islam, we have a link stronger than the link of blood. And that is the link of tawheed. Coming together under this remit of declaring the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and accepting the prophecy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam will not grant us the understanding. I mean, these are some of the lessons I wish to share with you brothers and sisters. As I said, there are many, many, many more lessons that we can take from the speech of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If we taught this lecture in Arabic, then even the Arabic words that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam used why he used this word or that word or this tense over that tense, we can extract an abundance of lessons that cannot be learned and perhaps Allah will have decreed for us to do that one day in the future in sha Allah, but mela utra kulula you throw julu as they say, the Arabic language that which cannot be done in its entirety, should not be left out in its entirety and willingly unhemmed Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed us to share some from the much that can be said regarding this particular topic. are servants of Allah and all children of Adam, my dear brothers and sisters, my dear mothers and fathers, this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah has made easy
for myself to share with you all and made easy for us to learn. And sadly, all good things must come to an end. all good things must come to an end. This is the year that we live in. We don't live in perpetual illness or the those things which we love will not last with us perpetually except for at the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala Jelena is that place that inshallah Allah will grant us gentlemen with Elijah Allah, and it is at this juncture that I say Alhamdulillah when he met he he, the team was slowly hacks that all praises belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah for it is with his blessings, that all good becomes completed and May Allah subhanahu Allah make this good for each

And may Allah Almighty make us a people that are forgiven upon our departure. And may Allah grant us a beautiful death when our time to leave this world arrives. May Allah send those angels from Genoa to collect our souls when it is time for us to leave this world? I mean, may Allah Almighty only grant us death when he's pleased with us. And when Jenna is our destination, I mean, we almost have Hannah who Allah preserve our parents in his obedience, and shower His mercy upon them, and protect them from terminal
illness. And for those of our parents who have passed away, we have lots of Hannah who are to Allah make the graves a garden from the gardens of Geneva. I mean, I mean, and May Allah subhanahu Allah bless the spouses of the
spouses of the dogs, who support the dog with patience, and happiness, and allow them to be away in sha Allah in the service of Islam for the sake of Allah Subhana who Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them, and make all their dreams come true in both worlds, I mean, we also kind of who Allah granted to act in every Muslim,
