The next lesson of 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 had the message. So he didn't hide from his sermon, the importance of the hour, and oh servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam, we need to hold steadfast on to this advice, because we are who we are because of the practice of

00:00:36--> 00:00:44

the practice of the hour. We have been declared the best nation because of the hour for Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I said

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

hi euro

00:00:50--> 00:00:50

region,

00:00:52--> 00:00:55

that you are the best of all nations. Why?

00:00:56--> 00:01:07

The Moodle Nabeel Maru v. 10. Whoa, not earning me code you invite towards good and you prevent from evil?

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

Well, to me No.

00:01:12--> 00:01:33

And you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala. We are the best of all nations because of this data. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ended his sermon, advising towards the practice of the hour, and never ever forgetting it, for our salvation is in practicing it.

00:01:34--> 00:01:45

In fact, all servants of Allah, the nations before us, were cursed and doomed because they left out sort of like Tommaso Pena who attended and says

00:01:47--> 00:01:56

loreena levena cafo me Bunny is on Isla. Lisa NIDA

00:01:57--> 00:01:58

v sub n Mo.

00:01:59--> 00:02:01

Then Nika. Bhima.

00:02:05--> 00:02:24

Allah says cursed are those who have disbelieved from the children of Israel, in upon the tongue have dealt with adding Salah, and upon the tongue of Isa and in Salah. Why, because they sinned, and they transgressed. They transgressed Allah Subhana who at the LSS can

00:02:26--> 00:02:32

Hola, me, Curry, Lu, labby, summer

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

is 78 and 79.

00:02:40--> 00:02:44

Allah says, they never used to warn against evil,

00:02:45--> 00:02:53

evil practices became rife in their societies, and they never warned against it. Instead, they practiced it, and

00:02:55--> 00:03:44

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 either loop over 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 oh Children of Adam is the prerogative of everyone who says La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, for Rasulullah

00:03:44--> 00:03:46

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said ballyhoo

00:03:48--> 00:04:24

that conveys something from me even if it's one ayah. Yes, you have to invite to knowledge not to ignorance. And as a moment before, he asked me to La, la, he has a whole chapter in his city called Babel, the enemy of public only when I'm in the chapter of knowledge before speech and action. Yes, this is true. But how are we saying we totally ignorant, there's nothing of Islam that we know is is what we say. If you know something, and you know that you know it, it's your job to invite it.

00:04:26--> 00:04:59

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. This is what worship does. It makes us more humble. This is what the pirates before us used to say. And we can observe that our in many forms. People say well, you know, I'm not a public speaker. I don't know how to present the message. Yeah, I can carry

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

Are you kidding me?

00:05:02--> 00:05:15

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,

00:05:16--> 00:05:52

and WhatsApp. Right? No more, what's up? What's up? 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 wa sallam, 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.

00:05:54--> 00:06:37

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 commanded to convert this guidance is from Allah subhanho wa Taala. This at the beginning of every speech we say, who have Allah guides, when 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 stopped giving the data all together. Because when we doubt our ability to convert,

00:06:38--> 00:06:48

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 convert. Right.

00:06:50--> 00:07:01

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 where you created in play.

00:07:02--> 00:07:39

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 the obligation of service online, we can become a better online, we can become a better Alma if we all all together practice this, that our within our remit and ability. We Allah subhanho wa Taala can't just be understanding one thing, brothers and sisters, I forgot to say when we discussed this whole concept of brotherhood is which I want to say before I end off I am Indigo is this whole concept of us being an Omega and Omega?

00:07:40--> 00:08:09

Right Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If we analyze deeper in this sermon asuma 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

00:08:10--> 00:08:12

someone from the oma

00:08:13--> 00:08:18

is blessed with something become happy as well and celebrated.

00:08:19--> 00:08:49

And be happy for them. Irrespective of again, their color, or their 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 sisterhood and this is the reality of servants of Allah. This is the reality of 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.

00:08:51--> 00:09:29

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 we have not granted 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 wasallam, the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if we taught this lecture in Arabic, then even the Arabic words that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

wasallam 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 a lower decree for us to do that one day in the future. Insha Allah, but man, you throw 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 will enlighten him to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed us to share some from the much that can be said

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

Regarding this particular topic, or service of Allah, and all children of Adam, my dear brothers and sisters, my dear mothers and fathers, this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala 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 dunya that we live in. We don't live in perpetual police 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 Bismillah heeta Allah, and it is at this juncture that I say Alhamdulillah when I met him,

00:10:42--> 00:11:24

he, the team was slowly hacked, that all praises belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala for it is with his blessings, that all good becomes completed and May Allah subhanho wa Taala make this good for each and every one of us. I mean, we all know some kind of way to Allah make us a people who hear a good word and follow it. And may Allah Almighty accept our time together. 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 gender 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

00:11:24--> 00:11:48

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 almost have Hannah who are to Allah make the graves a garden from the gardens of gentlemen. I mean, I mean, and May Allah subhanahu Allah bless the spouses of the

00:11:50--> 00:12:10

spouses of the 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 subhanahu Allah bless them, and make all their dreams come true in both worlds, I mean, we all must have had of who Allah granted to act and every Muslim,

00:12:11--> 00:12:27

the highest form of sincerity, that we don't do anything except for the sake of Allah. And we don't leave anything except for the sake of Allah. Allah Subhana Allah Allah forgive us. Allahumma inland are becoming an illusionary cubby cache. On one hand, I'm Obi Wan

00:12:28--> 00:13:14

Kenobi, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala protection from ever associating partners with him knowingly, and we ask his forgiveness. If we ever did so unknowingly. We all know some kind of way to Allah, gather us all together, many, many a time in this world, and then gather us underneath his outfit that you have. And then gather us agenda, the highest gender with Mohammed, Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Ibrahim alayhi salam, and all the prophets of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and all those that we love from the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and all those that we have come to love because of the servitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala brothers and sisters
