00:02:35--> 00:02:38

Oh praise Geeta, Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:02:39--> 00:02:43

And please pay upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:44--> 00:02:58

or testify that there's no god except Allah testify the Muhammad is the Prophet the Messenger of Allah and my brothers in Islam. I encourage myself a new tip number Allah subhanho wa Taala as a law you Lord stating the Holy Quran

00:02:59--> 00:03:01

as you believe Fie Allah.

00:03:02--> 00:03:17

Fie Allah the way you should be feed and do not die unless you're in the state of Islam. As Allah subhanho wa Taala also says, In salted hash, or those who believe Fie Allah, and be observant.

00:03:18--> 00:03:28

be observant of what you're going to offer to the loss of Hannah or to Ireland, you and your actions and your deeds. Allah subhanaw taala knows of everything that you do.

00:03:29--> 00:03:39

My brothers in Islam, Allah subhana wa Taala he calls upon mankind and Allah says, Yeah yohannes in common Daiquiri noir

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

was

00:03:45--> 00:04:08

in a coma coma in De La Jolla, all mankind. So now the addressing of Allah subhanho, Thailand the call of Allah azzawajal is not only targeting Muslims and believers but loss of an autonomous calling upon all his servants, Muslims or non Muslims, because every single creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala whether the luck or not the other servants of Allah,

00:04:10--> 00:04:15

Allah azza wa jal is calling upon them analyzer says all mankind all people

00:04:16--> 00:04:18

were created from male and female.

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

So the first call of a loss of Hannah Montana

00:04:24--> 00:04:32

and the first lesson out of this verse, Allah azza wa jal wants us to understand our fabric is made out of a male and a female

00:04:33--> 00:04:37

men and women, boys and girls,

00:04:38--> 00:04:41

male and female, in the hall of

00:04:45--> 00:05:00

wakaba, Isla Lita, we made you into different tribes, different nations, for you to know one another in Nakama coming from Santa Avro. We are trying to do from a malware. Try to do from a

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

Female had made you from Arabs and non Arabs, we made you black and white. We made you rich and poor, we made you strong and weak but at the end of the day, it's Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Chroma

00:05:12--> 00:05:15

the most honorable want Allah is the one that feeds all of us.

00:05:16--> 00:05:30

So it's not based on your agenda. It's not based on your ethnicity. It's not based on nationality. It's not based over your race. It's not based over your walls, it's based over your righteousness and piety.

00:05:31--> 00:05:32

In

00:05:35--> 00:05:53

the most honorable to Allah subhanho wa Taala in the sight of Allah azza wa jal in the scale of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one that feeds Allah subhanho wa Taala must say you could be a man and you could surpass everyone else, but at the same time, you could be a human and he could surpass everyone else.

00:05:56--> 00:06:00

For them in Islam, we do believe in the concept of equality

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

and sharing that respect between a male and a female men and women.

00:06:08--> 00:06:30

And a man doesn't have any superiority over a woman a woman doesn't have a super. Amen. What makes you superior ever anyone else whether to be agenda if this race, culture, nationality, Wolf, it's your taqwa piety. Righteousness comes before everything and everyone.

00:06:31--> 00:06:36

Your scale of respect and honor is the scale of taqwa.

00:06:39--> 00:06:46

And the government of taqwa the government of righteousness and piety is the most absolute, and the greatest of all things.

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

My brothers in Islam,

00:06:51--> 00:06:54

Islam came to honor women.

00:06:56--> 00:07:26

Islam came to uplift the status of women in society, especially during a time in an era where women were said the greater than dishonored, not only amongst Arabs, that misunderstand, not only amongst Arabs, amongst Arabs and non Arabs, not only within the Eastern culture, amongst the ancient Eastern culture, and even amongst the Western culture during that time. But then it's time came the elevator

00:07:27--> 00:07:32

came to honor her. Give her the status that she's due for.

00:07:33--> 00:07:56

Give her the respect that she's joyful. honor her the honor that she deserves, especially, especially during a time, especially during a period where a woman who said the greatest dishonored, that if a man if a father has been informed that his wife just gave birth to a girl to a baby girl who got burial life,

00:07:58--> 00:08:00

the loss of Hannah Montana mentioned

00:08:01--> 00:08:06

order to show you that and the innocent baby girl when she's buried

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

a lot what was she killed? Why would she even mattered? Because she's a female. Because she's a girl. Well, Allah subhana wa tada has honored his status.

00:08:20--> 00:08:24

Allah subhanho wa Taala gave me the honor and the respect that she deserves.

00:08:25--> 00:08:38

Why do you kill you Goddess fool? knows the culture amongst the Arabs. But again, it wasn't any amongst Arabs. According to some European cultures, if a husband passes away, they used to bury his wife with you.

00:08:39--> 00:08:43

You have no rights to continue living after him. I'm talking 1000s of years ago.

00:08:46--> 00:08:52

It was a very degrading society. Especially when it came to dealing with women. But then as time

00:08:54--> 00:09:05

came and read on it, I'm not gonna say on it but read on it. Women while because from the time of Adam alayhis salam, Allah subhanaw taala created the first human being and that

00:09:06--> 00:09:07

Allah honored women from them.

00:09:09--> 00:09:17

Allah subhana wa Taala made women partners of men as the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says and he says

00:09:20--> 00:09:43

that women are partners of men. They are your partners that equal rights like you and you have equal rights like them. They have equal respect law and you have equal respect love them. So whether you like it or not, if the Crider Allah honest, then you have the grace and you must honor them. And you have no rights to dishonor them.

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

You have no rights to degrade them. But it is a loss of Hannah Tyler's rights upon you. They honor your women. Whether it be your mother, your daughter, your sister, your wife,

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

Your Auntie,

00:10:02--> 00:10:16

Enough said that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recommended and ordered so many times, even when he was on his deathbed and during his husband, the farewell sermon is thought to be nice.

00:10:17--> 00:10:18

Take care of you, women.

00:10:19--> 00:10:21

Take care of your woman.

00:10:25--> 00:10:36

Take care of you women, he refers to your wife to not only your mother, your mother, your wife, your sister, your daughter, your niece, your auntie, your grandmother, any woman in society,

00:10:37--> 00:10:49

Islam commands and orders, they honor them, you respect them, you take care of them. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says Mark chroma hoonah illa curry wa Han Han in the Illallah him

00:10:51--> 00:11:00

honorable, generous kind person that looks after them. And only a main evil person that is this, this respect some of these honors them.

00:11:03--> 00:11:16

It is our Islamic obligation. It is our Islamic duty upon us as men, that we take care of our woman and part of taking care of a woman that will look after them and give them their rights.

00:11:17--> 00:11:26

When the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he says about him as a husband. And he's calling upon all husbands and he says Allah is salatu salam,

00:11:31--> 00:11:44

the best of others best to their families, and I am the messenger of Allah, I have the best of my family. If you want to be the best of believers in the sight of Allah subhana wa tada then you must be the best of husbands to wives.

00:11:45--> 00:12:02

You must be the best of fathers dear daughters, you must be the best of sons to your mothers. He must be the best of brothers to your sisters. A man comes to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says the Messenger of Allah, he has more rights ever my friendship

00:12:04--> 00:12:11

has more rights, to be the closest people to man for me to take care of them. So the problem Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, says your mother.

00:12:13--> 00:12:18

So this companion says Then who? So the Prophet Muhammad SAW some replies again, it says unlock your mother.

00:12:20--> 00:12:26

And then this companion asks again and it says or messenger of Allah. So this companion says, after after

00:12:27--> 00:12:31

the new the prophet SAW some replies back then the third top omocha mother.

00:12:32--> 00:12:35

And then the fourth time this companion says or messenger of Allah.

00:12:36--> 00:12:40

So the Prophet Muhammad SAW some of the fourth time he says, a buck from

00:12:42--> 00:12:48

your mother, your mother, your mother, then your father, wondering the problem.

00:12:49--> 00:13:06

Or seldom reply, the second time that this companion had asked him or messenger, your father, but the problem I massage and repeated the first time your mother, then the second time, your mother, your mother, fourth time your father, for us to understand the importance of this woman in your life.

00:13:09--> 00:13:16

For us to understand the honor the loss of Hannah Montana, given this woman, and your mother is your mother, now,

00:13:18--> 00:13:21

your mother is your mother, no, but your mother's also of your father.

00:13:23--> 00:13:26

And he never likes to see their mother to be dishonored, or disrespected.

00:13:28--> 00:13:41

And you have a sister that she's also a wife of someone else, and you don't have someone else say you love is also a daughter, a sister or a mother of someone else, I respect them and give them the respect that I do.

00:13:43--> 00:13:46

Give them the respect that they deserve. And that's part of your Eman.

00:13:49--> 00:13:55

It is part of measuring your Eman part of your image that either you respect your wife,

00:13:57--> 00:13:59

you respect your daughter, you respect your mother.

00:14:01--> 00:14:03

It's a man that you measure.

00:14:04--> 00:14:17

So if you're the type of person that disrespects his wife, and even goes even a step further that allows himself to even lay a hand on his wife, then that's lack of Eman in your life.

00:14:19--> 00:14:26

That's dishonor. And this respect, not only to your work, but to Islam, and to the entire nation.

00:14:29--> 00:14:36

Illallah him and the great degrading person degrades them a dishonorable person dishonest them.

00:14:38--> 00:14:49

It's our responsibility as Muslims to respect and admire women in our lives, whether they're our daughters, our mothers, and in particular awards.

00:14:51--> 00:14:58

As the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam repeated so many times. It's those who have been Nyssa

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

Take care of your women. Take care of your wife when he was even on his deathbed. What do people usually remind people or remind of others or their followers or the kids on the on the deathbed the most important things in their lives.

00:15:14--> 00:15:27

And from amongst the important of things that the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam reminded his nation of when he was on his deathbed and Jerry has written without the farewell sermon sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reminded the companions to take care of their wives.

00:15:30--> 00:15:32

Take care of him, Look after him.

00:15:33--> 00:15:42

So much other than the Prophet Mohammed Salah salami says for Topalov in this outfit, Allah subhanho wa Taala and what you have from women

00:15:44--> 00:15:51

in other words, say Allah subhana wa tada and your wives and take care of them for in nutcombe Mohan

00:15:52--> 00:16:25

amanatullah he was the tone for the hoonah became Attila the Prophet Mohammed Salim continues to say that you've taken them, they became your wife with the trust of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So your wife is a trust that Allah subhana wa tada had entrusted you with before her father before her brother before her family. And when you mess around with that trust, you are messing around with the loss of Hannah with Allah because your wife is a trust in the hands of Allah Subhana Allah has entrusted you with

00:16:28--> 00:16:32

and when you dishonor them and disrespect them, then this is a disrespect to you Lord.

00:16:33--> 00:16:39

Because when you dishonor and disrespect, I trust you are disrespecting the one that had entrusted you with that trust.

00:16:43--> 00:16:48

As the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam describes in a manner to law, the trust of the laws of Hanover.

00:16:49--> 00:16:51

So when you look at your wife,

00:16:52--> 00:17:02

the look I just tell you what, but look as I trust Allah subhana wa tada interested you with Luca as a partner as the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the Hadith,

00:17:04--> 00:17:06

they share everything with you.

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

They show your life.

00:17:10--> 00:17:12

They show you happy moments, you said moments.

00:17:15--> 00:17:17

They say the easy days and the hard days.

00:17:18--> 00:17:42

Take care of them, honor them. And one of the most degrading things. One of the most degrading qualities that a man can ever ever have is for him to lay a finger on his wife. Yes, all husbands or wives disagree. Everyone disagrees with this spouse, even the problem homosassa have disagreed with the spouse. But that doesn't give you the right for you to lay a hand on them.

00:17:43--> 00:17:44

Islam does not accept that at all.

00:17:46--> 00:17:50

And Islam looks down upon someone who lays a hand on his wife.

00:17:52--> 00:17:56

Islam does not condone any form of violence upon your family.

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

On the contrary, is don't condemn.

00:18:02--> 00:18:07

Islam rejects and does not allow you to condone in any form or any shape.

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

You have a responsibility. And if you disagree with your wife, deal with her in an adult manner.

00:18:16--> 00:18:41

You don't want to continue with her, then you could terminate the contract if things don't work out, but for you to lay a hand on her that's not equality of a man. So Pamela, some people have the misunderstanding of a man. They think that for being a man and part of your manhood is for you to lay a hand on your wife. That's not the character of a man who because it is someone who is more men who have than you. And that's the problem. homosassa never, ever he sallallahu wasallam laid a finger on his wife's.

00:18:43--> 00:18:51

That's not the character of a believer. On the contrary, that's a character of an evil person as the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam mentions in the Hadith

00:18:53--> 00:19:03

that's not a character of someone who has good volume or a man of a man in his life. But that's a character of someone who is lacking a man.

00:19:04--> 00:19:06

Because a man teaches you to restrain yourself.

00:19:08--> 00:19:17

A man teaches you to restrain yourself and control yourself. And the first people they need to control yourself with is your wife, your family.

00:19:19--> 00:19:40

And unfortunately, it's becoming widespread, not within the Muslim community. But I believe it is one of the smallest things is happening in the Muslim community because we believe as Muslims there is. It's wrong. It's not accepted, but it's becoming widespread amongst people, domestic violence, where people lay out the frustration on their wives or their family.

00:19:41--> 00:19:46

Not only that, not only they are physically abusing them, but people even dying because of the

00:19:48--> 00:19:50

Islam would never ever accept something.

00:19:51--> 00:19:53

Islam came to honor and honor together.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

Islam came to honor men and women together and that's one of the

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

The greatest indications that we learn from is that the first person to embrace Islam on the hands of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was his wife, her these are the Allahu taala.

00:20:11--> 00:20:22

What lesson do we learn out of that is for us to understand that Islam shares the responsibility, and the God of eight, the God of Islam upon men and women.

00:20:24--> 00:20:34

So Pamela, these are some of the lessons that we learn well, Allah subhanho wa Taala made the first person to embrace Islam on the hands of the problem homosassa to be a female,

00:20:36--> 00:20:42

and the first blood to be shed for Islam and boy, for Islam, it was a blood of a female samaya

00:20:44--> 00:21:12

dlo Donna, she was the first to shed blood and boy as a shahida for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. This also implies the importance of the role of women in Islam. During the time of the problem homosassa woman shared the responsibility of the dollar, the responsibility of jihad, the responsibility of the state, the responsibility of many other things, the responsibility of education, the responsibility of Social Affairs, women shared that responsibility with the Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim.

00:21:13--> 00:21:35

Because in the results and came to honor them, Islam came to give them that respect that they had in the past, but then it diminished throughout time, but then Islam came to revive it again. And that's why I don't say Islam came to all of them, but it's them came to reorder them again, because they were ordered from the very beginning and Allah subhanaw taala created them.

00:21:36--> 00:21:38

When Allah created, however,

00:21:39--> 00:21:42

from Adam, in the paradise in agenda

00:21:44--> 00:21:55

for that my brothers in Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala commands that we take care of our voice, and we take care of a woman, whether they are to be our wives, our daughters, our mothers, our sisters.

00:21:57--> 00:21:58

Islam came to honor them.

00:21:59--> 00:22:13

And only a dishonorable person would dishonor them, an honorable person, honor them, and they I believe, I will honor a woman and and be someone who likes him and I just believe I would dishonor a woman of color.

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

Melissa muslimeen

00:22:19--> 00:22:21

hamdulillah Hamden, Catherine Kamara, Mr.

00:22:22--> 00:22:26

escuela, whom? Our Lady dalaman Shakur

00:22:27--> 00:22:31

Well, certainly well, Sally Marbury Carla Nabeel matava

00:22:32--> 00:22:53

Washington La ilaha illallah wa de la sharika. Or shadow Anna, Mohammed, Abu hora, Sula, my bad, my brothers in Islam. When you hear the biography of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam in his dealings with his wives and one wife, by one stage, and we saw some had known wives.

00:22:54--> 00:23:03

If you look at the interaction and the dealings of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam with his wives in the salon was a very, very, very, an extremely good husband.

00:23:05--> 00:23:05

At the same time, he

00:23:07--> 00:23:12

was a great leader and a great teacher and a great message and a great prophet. But at the same time, he

00:23:13--> 00:23:15

was a great husband.

00:23:16--> 00:23:33

When the wives of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam speak about the character of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and describe how the Prophet Mohammed Salah Latinos, animals towards them, you're talking about someone, not only he looked after his wives and not only took care of the affairs of his wife, he was so romantic to

00:23:36--> 00:23:37

them so much.

00:23:40--> 00:24:07

out of his way, just to come for his wife. The Isaiah says the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam raised with me raised in the vessel Eliana Selim challenged me in a race twice. The first time I went against him the second time he went against me. Can you imagine if he did these days that he didn't even want to walk next to you or because you don't want people to look inside? He's walking next to his wife, man, Alicia is not a man. Some people have that perception.

00:24:08--> 00:24:10

And it is a cultural,

00:24:11--> 00:24:17

a cultural perception. But that's not an Islamic perception. You're not better than the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:24:18--> 00:24:22

in a salon to salon to care of the affairs of his wives. He took care of his wives.

00:24:24--> 00:24:25

He honored them.

00:24:26--> 00:24:30

He gave them the respect that they deserve.

00:24:31--> 00:24:48

And he's wa salatu wa sallam is the Messenger of Allah, whatever Salatu was salam o happen Burnaby sallallahu Sallam wanted to lead one example. And him leading by example was he a Salatu was salam to act upon where he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it encourages oma hieromartyr

00:24:50--> 00:24:59
