All praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala and we seek His guidance, and we seek
his assistance subhanho wa Taala. And we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evils of our souls, and the adverse consequences of our deeds. Whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon, then men can misguide him, and also have Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees misguidance upon them then can guide him and peace and salutations be upon the final messenger. Muhammad Ali Abdullah, Saleh Allahu Allah He was said, I bear witness that there is no one with your worship besides one Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his servant, and final messenger. My dear brothers and sisters and mothers and fathers, I greet you with the greetings of
peace Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
It gives me great pleasure to be with you all in Bradford this afternoon or should I say evening, the sunsets very early Mashallah. At this time, during the air, and while it is my third visit to your wonderful city, a city that may say what needs to have Hulu before entering.
It feels as good as the first time I visited you. I'd like to extend my gratitude to everyone involved in making this event a reality to encode and you all and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala from the outset to make our time together an act of worship, and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make this a gathering that has not come together except for his sake alone, to make this a gathering, that he has a good word and follows it and ask Allah azza wa jal Allahu Akbar, to make us a gathering that is forgiven upon our departure. This gathering is indeed special, or servants of Allah, and all children of Adam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith which is so much stammer
arco Wolfie Beatty min booty la luna kita Bala rasuna, who FEMA in a home, inland as an attorney, he was Sakina waka Shia Kumara Ma, we'll have FET Herman Miller, he was a common law human and he said sallallahu alayhi wasallam that there's no group that come together.
In this heavy heat states from a house from the houses of Allah, but the scholars say that this hadith is inclusive of all get togethers that have come together for the sake of Allah for the purpose of reciting the Quran, and the purpose of learning the lessons of the Quran, and learning from the inheritance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that there is no group of people that come together for this purpose, except that Allah blesses them with four gifts. The first gift is that Allah causes contentment to befall them. And the second gift is that Allah subhanho wa Taala causes this gathering to be engulfed in the mercy of Allah love.
And the third gift is that Allah assigns angels to surround this gathering lava. There's angels that are surrounding this particular gathering, even though you can see them. We believe that they are there, because this was the teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he was the one who lay on the floor and will hover in Who are you He never said anything from his desires from himself. Rather everything he said was revelation, and the fourth price. Are you ready for the fourth price? A mighty price. He says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the people of this gathering, to the angels that are with Allah subhanho wa Taala la Aqua

tadoba Well, I can either wait while I can grab the river elite, Allah is most deserving of the most greatest of praises, for allowing us this opportunity to do that Act, which is a means of Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioning us the King of kings, the Lord of the worlds mentioning us to those that are with him the minute
you have lots of Hannah who attack against us in general. I mean, my dear brothers and sisters, one cannot help but feel extra special and extra honored today for this gathering for the series. And for this topic. For me especially, I am honored because I have been privileged to speak about a great man,
who, Mashallah I have an echo somewhere in the crowd. A man who is considered to be a giant from the giants of Islam, a man upon his shoulder, you and I can only attempt to work on
a man who Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed with insight and an insight that was attested to by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a man who was blessed with immense strength, and blessed with immense bravery, a man who lived upon the truth and was defined by the truth and a man who spent his life defending the truth. A man who was blessed with the ability to read and write from a young age whilst the masses around him could not a man who grew up upon labor and hard work, and was nurtured to navigate through the labor is life of this world. From a very young age. A man no other than the famous
American kebab, or the Allahu Akbar, the man who earned the title he earned the title, and Farooq, who is the differentiator between truthfulness and falsehood. A man oh seven of Allah, and oh Children of Adam, who was known to be tall, and known to be fair in complexion, and the fast Walker, a man who was described to have larger hands and feet, Mashallah. And if he ever struck you, then he was known to deal a severe blow, a man who was feared and revered, and not because of just bodily might know, but also because of his mighty and standing up for the Hulk and the truth and that which he perceived as the Hulk and the truth
of the Allahu Allah subhanho wa Taala get us with him in Jannah. Ameen. Mr. Ravi Allah who was born 13 years after the year of the elephant
prominent family that belonged to a prominent tribe. And his father was prominent as well, in that he was a representative of his clan. In the well known establishment known as there are a network. there another one was the House of Representatives if we can use that term, a house that house the representatives of the kurashiki clans. And he was a father that brought honorable Barbara Viola who and while he ensured that he was given a proper education, and could read and write. And he nurtured him to be a leader. And a person who could navigate
that rugged and difficult desert region, for his father commanded that urban topography of Lahore and from a young age go out and heard the camels of the family. That was his job
was made in charge of grazing and looking after the camels of the family. So he had to take them outside of Mecca, and look after them outside of Makkah, far from the Kaaba, and far from the well of Zamzam. This was the task given term, it
should be a lesson to those fathers here today. Because sometimes what we see, should I say, or dare I say many a time, right? We find fathers mothering their children. Some people are laughing, Did I make a mistake? No, I didn't. Some fathers actually mother, their children, they don't let them do anything. They don't allow them to feel any responsibility. Right. And this wasn't the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. No, was in the way of those who brought up individuals that became known and true leaders. As parents, we must give our children responsibility, we should allow them to feel some form of responsibility, allow them to fail whilst we are alive and around them.
Because our children have very few, sincere advices very few sincere advices. Right. Our children's friends, parents will not advise our children, as we would advise our children. A father is a father to his child and a mother is a mother to her child. They advise with sincerity. So as parents to be diligent, we should ensure that we learn from the people of the past. And we take heed, and we allow them to make mistakes.
And we teach them how to grow from those mistakes because the travesty is not in making a mistake. Rather, the tragedy is in not learning from your mistakes and rather than make mistakes whilst we are around to correct them. When making mistakes after we pass away May Allah preserve us in his obedience. There's a famous Arabic saying that comes to mind Madhava support Len yaku that be one who is scared to fall will never stand. If you scared to fall, you will never ever stand. Right? Right. So sometimes to stand you need to experience falling. So this is a lesson we learned from the relationship between normativity Viola horn and his father, and even Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi
wasallam nurtured within us this important concept of giving people responsibility whilst we are around for he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to allow the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu Maggi Marine, the practice of he had even though he was around, and they could go to Him and ask Him for the answer. And we see in the Quran. Yes. Hello, Nick. Yes. Hello, Nick. Yes, aluna they ask you concerning and Allah would reveal, reveal the answer. But even though he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would allow them, this practice of HD had after fudger he would ask them to relay their dreams. And then he would encourage the Sahaba to interpret the dreams. And we know how he asked Abu Bakr
robiola, and very famously, to attempt the interpretation of a person's dream. And he famously said to him,
that you are right in some parts of your interpretation, and you've made mistakes in other parts of your interpretation. He was this Allahu Allah. He was telling them to do the job from the outset. But he was passing on responsibility to ensure that the sherea was left on the shoulders of men who would use it in a way that would be conducive to the idea of piano in a way that would be a means for you and I to sit here today upon La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah and have a dedicated discussion about a giant from
The Giants of Islam and the legend honorable hubbub, Allahu Allah May Allah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions in gender. I mean, I mean, so Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also taught us the importance of passing on responsibility. He sent morality bingeable to Yemen, as a dairy, a propagator, and the RV, a judge, and he told him, how would you fail? or How will you fare when you come across a circumstance that requires a ruling? And he said,
I will look in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if the answer is not there, then I will traverse through the pseudonym of Mohammed salallahu alayhi wasallam. And if the answer is not there, then I will practice personal reasoning based on the information in these two sources. The two sources of Islam, that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left us with the two sources about which he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam talked to fecal matter intersec to be length ob lugar de vida have left with you two things, if you hold steadfast upon them both, you will never ever go astray. These two things are the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala, and the student of Muhammad
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So I met him he
was given this task of managing the camels, but he didn't want to do this, his desire, his passion, was to be an entrepreneur. He wanted to be a tradesman. He wanted to trade. And he went to his father. And he said, I offer me some coins, so that I may go to Sham, and I can engage in trading in buying and selling, but his father refused. His father said, No, Your Honor. No, Your Honor, that job is for your brother, that job is for your brother. As for you, your job is to herd the camels. Why? Because you have qualities which your brother doesn't have. And he has qualities which you do not have. You see what the people are before people have perception. A lot of people have
perception. So this is what he said to his son. But even then, even then, or maybe we'll have Barbara Viola and never felt like some of us would today. He was a leader in his own right. He never served. Rather, he practiced the command of his father with great diligence. And he did it with commitment and dedication. And he learned great values from that, for he was the one who famously said, these words that can be written in gold. I'm sure the specialists in management would love to have these words. But these are the words of formidable hubbub of Yamaha. And he said
that as for camels pay attention, he said, As for camels, if you stay with them, as long as I have, you will come to learn that these camels are in need of correct management,
that these camels are in need of correct management. Why? Because as you manage them, you come to learn that there are no two camels that are the same. There is no two camels that are the same. They have their unique temperament. They have their unique needs, they have the unique abilities. So as you work with camels, you come to learn that there is no two camels that are the same. And he said, robiola one that when you are able to learn that, you will become able to manage them as a herd. And at the same time, look after them as individuals Allahu Akbar,
Allahu Akbar. How powerful is that statement? Right? Let's repeat it. He said that if you learn the characteristics of these camels, you gain the ability to look after them as a herd as a team, and at the same time look after them as individuals.
What a wise man, he was probably a lot more fun. And what a great man, he was robiola and honorable kapa robiola, who was also blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala with special skills in the art of horse riding, and in the art of racing, and in the art of wrestling, not the WWF you guys have come to know the fake acting. We're talking about real wrestling, or murrayville. Javier lavon had a special skill. In fact, it was said that no one could beat him in wrestling. He was the final person that no one could pass. And he wrote the Allahu Rn was a great supporter of the truth, a great supporter of what he perceived to be right. And that is why before he became a Muslim, he was
A great enemy of Islam, because Omar valued unity, and he disliked apathy. And he saw Islam as a concept that disunited homes and disunited communities. This is what he saw Islam as he didn't understand Islam then. But he saw Islam as the inverse. And thus, he took a great stance against the spreading of Islam to protect the aura of the courage to protect the aura of the tribes and the families. Thus, he effected a grave stance against the believers. And that was the stance of beating and lashing and punishing those who accept Islam to deter everyone else from even flirting with the idea of accepting Islam. This is what he did, from Yamaha and before Allah decreed guidance upon
him. In one narration, it states that he stood and lashed a slave girl from the beginning of the day to the end and Abu Bakr radi Allahu and watched him. And then he stopped. And when he stopped, he turned to her and said, that I have not stopped out Have mercy over you.
rather have stopped because the hand of Omar has become tired.
This was Omar, and this is how fierce he was, with that which he regarded to be the hack, and that which he considered the truth and Abubakar of Yahoo and spend from his money and purchase the slave girl and feed her. What will make us understand who Abubakar was. But even in his rage brothers and sisters, this man was an upright man, how, because once a fellow tribesmen and the fellow friend looked perplexed and armor, being armor and a man of vision, and a man of perception, he called him and said to him,
it's as if you are thinking about Islam, and accepting Islam and accepting the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and this whole speech about worshiping one God, and this whole speech about there being a hereafter. So his friend said, Yes, yes. If only it would not mean that I face your lesson. Subhan Allah Subhana Allah, this is what his friend said to him. So Rama, Rama and replied and said, you would indeed face my lashing, but rather I left someone I respect than be a friend of a coward Allahu Akbar. Look at this man. Even in his rage, he was a man who was upright. He said, I will love you. But I would have lashed a man I respect and that is better for me than
having a friend who's a coward. I don't need these types of people around me, not the only one. And it was because of this attitude and upright nature that he accepted Islam when the time came for him to accept Islam. The Islam of Omar, my dear brothers and sisters is a well known story. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a draft for the Islam of Ahmedabad. Viola and he made some Allahu alayhi wa sallam to Allah to assist Islam with the more beloved between Rama and Abuja. We have we have a new Roger Laney Lake as he said, some Allahu alayhi wasallam and Allah subhanho wa Taala decreed for it to be Rama. Now what's amazing brothers and sisters and this is another point
in note for us to take home today. And that is how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is making dua for oma. When Omar is punishing the Muslims
Subhana Allah, he's making grand for a man who is lashing those who declare the oneness of Allah and accept the prophecy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam How is this Yasser Allah was this random activity
by Allied wasn't for solace Allahu alayhi wa sallam was the best leader who ever walked the face of this earth. And he knew people for the qualities and he knew the value
And he had a vision, for he was the ultimate visionary. And he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a vision of Islam having the ability of reaching the four corners of the world before he passed away. So everything he did was true to this vision. That's why Stormer is lashing the
Muslims and is a fierce enemy of the Muslims. He's making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala for the Islam of formidable hubbub, Ravi, Allah. This is a grave lesson for us are servants of Allah, and all children of Adam, how many of us today, we practice practices that are just random activity? How many of us have come here today as random activity? This is not the way of a believer, a believer is one who does a range of activities that lead to one
understood clear and that is what the believer does. Right? That is what a believer does. If I live in Jamaica, for example, any Jamaicans in Bradford know, if I live in Jamaica, and I want to ski,
I want to ski. Can I ski? No, there's no snow there. But I have a vision to ski when I'm on my deathbed, I want to see people skiing.
Right? So what should happen if I am clear in terms of what I want to achieve? I know which university to go to. I know which subjects to take at university. Which specialization to take when I'm there. Because everything I do, from then onwards is a means to an end and not an end in and of itself. Today, many of us go to university and we don't know why. Who goes to university here.
How many people go to university raise up your hands? I mean, Bradford supposed to have a pretty intelligent community Mashallah, stand up, young lad stand up for us? What's your name brother? possum. Mashallah. That's a very powerful in person, you know what passive means?
He divides the truth from that which is false. What you studying in university classroom? Mashallah. You're an engineer? Why are you studying engineering?
You're doing a lot of thinking, say that, again, to improve products and services for people in the future. Why do you want to do that?
Because my parents told me I should do that. Because everyone else is doing it. No, no protocol takes he doesn't allow heroin. It's not possums fault. It's just what the situation is. It is what it is. We don't know why we doing things. It's random activity. And that is why many a university student drops out or changes specialization after wasting two years of their life, and two years of their parents money, and we know how expensive it is to get university education in this particular country nowadays. So what we're saying is you need to do something that is a means to an end. That end which will pull you through the current means that you're in, even if it becomes rugged, even if
I have to had camels, but I will continue doing it because I'm not doing this as an end in and of itself, but as a means to an end. Anyway, that's a topic for another day, you know, being a leader and having a vision and so on and so forth. But it's important that we are visionaries, because look at the legends that walked the face of this earth before us. Anyway, coming back to Romans, Islam. It was in the sixth year of lava of prophethood.
When Omar decided enough is enough, enough is enough. The Muslims are causing havoc in our society. And he lost patience with the negotiations of the representatives in the network. So he took it upon himself to put an end to it. And with rage, he walks looking for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and on his way to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam obviously with the intention of killing him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he bumped into a man from his tribe name even Abdullah and why him even Abdullah, new Omar and he knew this man and his character and he could see the intent in his face. So he immediately asked, Where are you going? So Omar being candid, direct, sorry, a surah Hara.
Sahil Elijah, a saraha raha, he
just spoke out, I'm off to kill Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He never mentioned his words. He never used these words. So when we're in said, out of panic, out of fear, he never wanted to release the greatest secret ever. But out of panic, he said, he goes, do you think the tribe of Mohammed will leave you walking after you do that? Go back home and fix your matches at home for your sister and brother in law have accepted Islam. So this was a huge revelation.
And obviously charity begins at home. And Omar a matter of priority knew this. So immediately he changed his coordinates.
He received the TomTom.
And he went to his sister's home. And as he got to her home, he heard this whispering coming from behind the door. He had this job British and he, he was more convinced that there's something going on here. Why are these whispers their homes weren't like the homes that we have. Right? So he knew something was up, and who was in the house, a person
who was also persecuted heavily. When he became a Muslim Habad in the Levant, he was teaching them Quran. So Omar knocked the door, he knew this is Mr. He went into hiding. He went into hiding, and the brother in law, opened the door, as he opened the door or inquired, and they tried to hide what was happening. But Omar was not having it. And he started striking his brother in law. He struck his brother illusory, dibben zadara Viola and, but his sister would also not have her husband being beaten by Omar. So she dived into the way and Omar slapped her as well. And as he almost did it for a second time, he saw blood coming out from her nose. So he stopped he simmered down immediately, he
was enraged in anger. He was engulfed in anger, and we know right, become so angry that we divorce our wives. And then lo Mustang. What did I just do? Let me go to the chef. And we say she has helped me out here. I've done something wrong. Right. I said, this is the brothers in Halifax once in Riyadh was saying that a man came to him one day and he said, I divorced my wife, please help me. So he said, Why did you divorce your wife? So he said, that she one day told me you're not a man. So I said, I said, I'm a man says you're not your man. He said, I'm a man. She says, if you're a man, divorce means Oh,
you divorced. He goes, I'm a man go. he divorced. She said La, La quwata illa Billah. You're not a man. A man who didn't do that. Right? So some people have this character. Right? And this wife knew and that's why they say the one who knows the man properly is his wife. They know they've got the charms and everything. If you want something from him, get it from his wife.
So Omar was enraged. So he slapped her. But as he simmer down and calm down, his eyes fell upon this material that the words of the Quran was written on to and he demanded to read it, but his sister was not having it. And why did he demand to read it? He wanted to know what is this Islam that gives these females so much bravery, and so much strength that they can jump into the way of Omar beating a man. And this was unheard of. He said, I have to read this. And he obviously famously said that he couldn't until he bathed, thus he bathed and he began reading what they had with them. And lo and behold, it was por
que la Lima me
you have been in
Isla in hula, hula, as
he read robiola, one for her. We have not sent down to you the plan that you be distressed, but only as a reminder for those who fear Allah subhanho wa Taala a revelation from he who created the earth and the highest heavens, the Most Merciful, who is above the Throne established To Him belongs what is in the heavens, and what is on earth, and what is between them and what is under the soil. And if you speak aloud, then indeed he knows the secret of what is even more hidden. Allah, there is no deity except Him. To him, belongs the most beautiful, and best of names Allahu Akbar, Allah perama read this, a man of poetry a man of skill. He read this and he said, Is this what the Quraysh are
running away from
He said, The one who says these words indeed does not deserve to have partners associated with him in worship. Allah Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And he, he commanded that he be taken to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was in that outcome, and he recited the Shahada. What do we learn from this brothers and sisters? We learn how to be people of action.
We learn how to be people of action. This is Omar, he didn't sit and say, What will the Quran say about me? What will my tribe say about me? What will the people say about me? I was the one who effected this whole case of lashing and and punishing those who have accepted Islam. How would I look? I look bad. No. When the truth dawned upon him, Mayor de la palma de la, the one who Allah guides the man can misguide when the truth dawned upon him. He was a supporter of the hack, and they have defined him, he didn't care about anybody. He said, Take me to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam indeed this message is is not disunity. Rather, it is unity and a man of action he was that
he said to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam
Are we not upon the truth? And when Mohammed Salah Allahu alayhi wa sallam said yes, he wrote the Allahu and said, then why are we hiding and worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. Surely we have a greater right of worshiping Allah by the Kaaba than those idols that inhabit the Kaaba, and it was agreed that the Muslims will offer their Salah in open. After the Islamic armory, we have Barbara Viola and they marched to the Kaaba, flanked by unbearable hubbub and flanked by Hamza, and those leaders in their net one never blinked an island they said who is going to cause harm on a group flanked by these two giants? love a
person of action, person of action.
Brothers and sisters, we have so many things to say and I think I have five minutes left, but I have five minutes left. Let's try and May Allah grant Baraka in these five minutes so that it becomes 10. I mean, I want to share with you some statements in the Sunnah regarding armory, mahapatra, Yamaha and First, we learn that he had a very special relationship with the Quran.
He had a very special relationship with the Quran. In fact, he was the companion, the companion of your loved one that had the privilege of saying, of saying that my lord agreed with me in three matters Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
He says the first matter with regards to taking the place of Ibrahim as a place of prayer, number one, number two, with regard to the hijab, he was the one who said to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that indeed, people visit your home, some have sick hearts.
It would be better if your wives covered
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah revealed the eye of Egypt. And it was he
who said to the wives of Muhammad Sallallahu ala he was sending them when they upset him that they should stop. Otherwise Allah will replace them with those who are better. And Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed is with the meaning of the statement of
Allah when they are many other instances that are multiple katavi Allah one because decreed by Allah that He would be a means of revelation being revealed, like at the time of better when Allah agreed with his decision with regards to the capitals, and with regards to alcohol, and its ruling, probably Allahu Akbar, from the merits of Amara rhodiola Horan is that he was always with the Messenger of Allah Most of the time he was with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam there's countless a hadith where we see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying I came and they came to Abu Bakr and Omar and I entered and they entered to Abu Bakr and Omar, Ravi Allahu anhu.
From the merits of Omar, is that Omar was given glad tidings of having a home in paradise whilst he was on this photo sola sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith in Sahih, Muslim reported by jabiru Viola one that I entered paradise, and I saw in it a house or a palace, and I said, For womb is reserved for and the angel said it is formidable. Barbara de la hora.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Rama when he told him this, that I intended to enter the house, I almost went into your house, but I remembered your jealous character. I remember this character so I didn't. So Viola horn he cried and said that oh prophet of Allah
Could I feel any jealousy? If you entered my home? Look at the relationship between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Sahaba from the merits of Omar is that I shall be Allah and he reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that aroma was a man of inspiration for he said, they had been among the people before you inspired individuals. And if they were any such among my own method, Amr me, hubub would be from them. He was a man inspired, he had what today we call the sixth sense, right?
From the merits of Omar, it will help Barbara Viola Juan, is that once Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in this hadith in Sahih Muslim that I saw people in a dream in my dream, and they were wearing shirts, and some had sheds that reached up to their chests, and some had sheds that went beyond them. And then I saw Barbara Viola who and walking with the shed trailing so they asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam How do you interpret this dream? So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that this is a sign of the strength of Omar's faith, robiola
from the merits of servants of Allah is that shavon doesn't walk the same path that your loved one walks for once, as in the headache of sad even if you walk past rhodiola when he says Rama Rama who answered permission to enter into the space of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, while some of the women of the Quran were busy talking to him, and some of them raised their voices over his voice, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when he took permission to enter, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam allowed it, the women ran behind the curtain.
So Omar said, Yasser Allah, surely you are more deserving of being feared than me.
And then he turned to the females and said, Oh, enemies of yourselves. Surely Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has a greater need of being feared than me. And they shouted out to him and said, yes, you are a harsh and strict man, in comparison to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And in response to that, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, by him, in whose hand is my life, if Satan would encounter you in the way, he would certainly take a different way from that of your Celica, for general magic, he would take a way other than your way shavon is scared that if I encounter Omar, I might accept Islam, Allahu Akbar, right. These are from the
merits of servants of Allah, and no children of Adam, I need to end my talk now. And I'm going to end with two or three points of check.
Point number one Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam summon the greatness of this man Omar Abu Dhabi Allah and by saying that if there was a prophet to come after me, it would be remarkable.
If there was a prophet to come after me, it would be Omar. And the scholars when they discuss this heavy they tell us an amazing thing. They say Subhana Allah look at the knowledge of Allah.
Look at the knowledge of Allah, that Allah knows that those things which are not supposed to happen, if they happen to happen, then how they will happen Allah knows that as well kind of attack. Thus we have a heavy such as these Avaya Anima Mecca. Allah knows what was and Allah knows what is and Allah knows what will be. And Allah knows how it will be and our knows what will not be. And Allah knows how everything will be. And if those things that are not supposed to be if they happen to be then how they will be he Allah subhanho wa Taala knows as well. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, are servants of Allah. The second point that I want to share with you before switching off is one part from the
death of American typography Allah and because some people and legends like him. They are people that teach us how to die in the living, and they teach us how to live in their dying Allahu Akbar. And if we just discuss the dying of Omar Allah, he does magnanimous lessons, and we will need to such as a surgeon.
But one amazing thing that happened, or which I want to share with you and he was passing away was that whilst he was bleeding to death, but on the other hand, a young boy walked to him to see him and this boy had his lower government below or dragging on the floor below his ankles.
As he walked away to leave Rama, Rama, turn to him and call
out to him and said, Yep.
Oh son of my brother. Wow, look at this beautiful in dying is teaching us how to do dow look at that not saying oh my god, all misguided one also and so our foolish person, and so on and so forth beautiful words, Oh son of my brother. In fact over lift yourself for in a big way indeed it is of more piety to Europe, it's more beloved to Allah
and it will make you stronger.
He joined between the spiritual ruling and lesson as well as the tangible physical ruling and lesson he taught us how to be comprehensive in our data. May Allah guide us with him in Jannah. Allah Hi.
We are not here to just say stories, brothers and sisters. We are here to reform our lives from
the lessons of the people of honor. They were people of honor. They were few people who walk the face of this earth. But they made an impact today with billions of people and ways the impact. They truly were people of honor. They were 313 that stood on better in front of 1000. And today you and I are Muslim, because of that battle. Allahu Akbar. They were giants. They were people of honor. We are crying to be recognized. But we're not taking the means of being recognized. We want to read about the lives of the people of honor, but we didn't bring into our life. The dosages of the medication of honor, the remedy that brings about honor we didn't honor the law and was a man of
honor. He lived for Allah He spoke for Allah He remained silent for Allah he did for Allah his living was for Allah his dying was for law. Nothing of this world mattered. Nothing of this world mattered. I shared with the brothers in Leeds yesterday. some amazing things from his he left with man Rama, who and says that, you know what? Once it was so hot, and I heard a man screaming and running around, and I said which Mad Men can be out in the hot sun here. And I walked out to see the leader of the Muslims running around. And I said yeah, many
of the Muslims, what are you doing? It's hot outside. He says one of the camels of sadaqa has become lost.
It's become a How can I rest when this man is lost? I need to go find it. Allahu Akbar. What would you do with sleep? Go deeper in the divine. Right? Put on the central heating even make it more hotter. Right. That's what we will do. But the hardest
thing is easy. Okay. Yeah, look at the people of honor. Look at them. This was this was Rama, Ravi Allahu, and once he said when he was told you, you are tired, man. You should rest. You should sleep. He says and how can I sleep? How can I sleep? When Abubakar Viola and gave me this? He laughed. He said to me, he said to me, Omar. Indeed, Allah has actions during the night that you cannot do during the day and for Allah actions during the day which you cannot do at night.
So he wrote the other one said, If I sleep during the day, I will lose my people. And if I sleep during the night, I will lose Allah subhanho wa Taala. Who needs sleep? Who needs sleep by Allah, we will sleep in the grave. We know that there are people who live for 60 to 70 years, but they've been in the grief over 100 years. We know of people, right? They live to 70 years, but they are dead under the ground for more than that. We have lots of Hannah who Alexander's death was pleased with us. The last thing I'm going to say is the story of Omar Abdullah, who and entering Palestine, this giant this legend, when they're in humbleness, honor was understood by this man. He knew where honor
was. And as he entered Palestine, that was ruled by emperess. He had his slippers underneath his armpits. He had his slippers underneath his armpits. So I will obey the law and says Yamini these are employees who are the leader of the Muslims.
Given your right, will you choose?
And I'm going to turn to him and said,
if it was other than you who said this, you would have faced the wrath of oma barbado was a respected robiola one. Omar said. Omar said
we are a nation that were wretched. Nobody wanted to know us. We were the worst of the worst national common as an Allah, Islam. We are a nation that Allah has given honor to through Islam. This is where honor is not in putting your shoes on your feet, knowing what people think about you. Not in
People think about you. Be strange. He was strange. It was strange to work with you have your slippers underneath your armpits. He was strange but a so what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said for to ballyhoura bad tidings to the strange ones. He told this companion of his that we were wretched. We have been given honor because of Islam. And if we sought honor in any other way other than Islam, then not only will we be wretched, but Ummah will make us wretched Allah, Allah for
one minute fighting Islam. next minute, we have people 1000s of years later, we speak about him with honor. We speak about him with pride, and we ask a lot together with him in gender. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding, may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive our sins, forgive our past May Allah
Allah Allah grant has death while he's pleased with us and grant us death whilst he has decreed for us to have a grave which is a garden from the gardens of Jana. May Allah send us angels from Ghana to collect our soul immediately after the Angel of Death takes that soul from us. I mean, may Allah grant a shade underneath his arm from the day of May Allah gather us together as he has gathered us here today underneath is on the day of May Allah because meet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and decreed for us to be smile on the day of tm and not his tears. May Allah protect us from being turned away from his house on the day of mean, may Allah make us people who practice a Sunnah
because it's a Sunnah and not people who leave a sooner because it's a long stand. Those legends they practice the sooner because it was a sooner they valued it. They never belittled it. May Allah grant us our book of deeds in our right hands, and May Allah subhanho wa Taala current agenda with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Abubakar and Roma and this man and Eddie and all the companions of the Allahu anhu Marine so that we can sit with Barbara Viola horn and tell him about our sitting in Bradford one cold day where we became inspired by a common fecal matter of Allahu Allah, Allah people for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala everything correct said is from Allah
and he's perfect and any mistakes are for myself and Shabbat and I see colossal pain Who else has forgiven us or some Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edgemax tomorrow
