I was in South Africa when I was a summer. Yeah, of course, some Alhamdulillah. I don't want that side of the world. It's winter. This is like, intense summer is peak summer. It's hot summer. But Alhamdulillah. It's good. Again, we also have to deal with the second wave challenge. So this is this is a real, you know, end the year break. Like you would have your summer break.
July, August. So this is the long break here. So all schools, factories, businesses, everything kind of shuts down and people are on an extended holiday and vacation during this time of the year.
And so are you are you able to have programs and stuff right now? Sure. So it's, you know, it's just finding a fine balance because things have resumed to a fair degree of normality, with masajid having activity Juma prayer, taking place congregational prayer programs, events, doses, etc, though limited and restricted. And just when things were kind of settling in again, you know, with the second wave, and the panic and the fear, so it's kind of created things a bit uneasy. I wouldn't say back to the most severe form of lockdown. But at the same time, people are just precarious precarious, because it's either way.
I'm sure we have issues Abdullah has just walked in. Can you see him? No, unfortunately, I can't. He's He's, he's next to us.

Allah who love him. So I have been informed by Mr. Brockman that Alhamdulillah Omar Abdullah ha brother that mytho has embarked on this 10 day intensive Sierra course and Mashallah students have enrolled and many others. And that's great. That's amazing. That's wonderful. So it's more focus, it's more structured, and it's more intensive.
Of course, our slot here today is just one hour slot, because that's the time that we have and we're going to endeavor to
Explore one angle, one dimension of the Sierra of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and as advertised that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a leader. at the onset, let me say that leadership, authority, position, power muscle cloud
is a situation that very few can survive. This position. Generally, when a person finds himself in that situation of authority, then his ego gets the better of him, and more than often he abuses and exploits that position. So we're going to show an X, you know, expound on how the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam conducted himself with dignity, amidst the authority that Allah subhanho wa Taala had conferred upon him.
Let me start off by speaking in the verse that I recited a verse of the second Jews of the Quran, the second chapter, in which Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about a monastic and has been sure. So he would come in the gathering of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And then he would express you know, I love you, I'm attached to you, I'm fond of you. And yeah, you know, just just flowery language and make all these lavish claims. But talk is cheap, talk is cheap, the real challenge is to walk the talk. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Whatever I tell ya Allah. Now the word Allah in Arabic has two meanings to Allah could mean as Bara when he turns his back and he leaves your
gathering or the word, Umrah, when there's very person who makes these lavish claims of loving you and being committed and faithful. But yet, when he finds himself in the seat of power, when he finds himself in authority, then you see a monsterous image coming out. How often don't we see pre election post election, pre election, it's, you know, what, or during the election, when it's to secure the vote. It's a begging approach. It's a humble approach. It's an obliging approach, but once the person has been inaugurated or sworn into office or given the pose, then suddenly there is such a change of events in the personality The, the, the party concerned or the entire group. What
is that? Well, when this person assumes power Seraph in our daily you see the fee law, then he just causes mischief on the earth where you legal Hertha oneness law, he destroys human lives and he destroys livestock. In other words, he does not differentiate because of arrogance, authority, muscle and cloud he just abuses Luqman Hakim, the Wise local man, he said to his son is that the article curato Carnival meanness the sakura tala honey, when your authority provokes you to abuse people, then remind yourself of the authority that Allah has over you. Okay, let's try and make some progress into different aspects of the serum. So there's a verse of the Quran Allah subhana wa Taala
says Kela in an insane Allah tala
tala and these are the verses of surah Allah which was the first chapter of the Quran to be revealed. Verily man learn torah rebels, an RA who started now, when he perceives himself to be self sufficient and independent. There's just no limits to his arrogance. There's no limits to his arrogance.
So when we look into the seer of the messenger, sallAllahu, Alayhi, wasallam and his noble companions, it was very, very different. Abubakar, the Allahu anhu, the successor of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Kanda Abu Bakr and Rajan and Tajima Abubakar. The Alanna was a tradesman. He was a man in business for Ghana, yo Kula Yeoman, a Sufi ob Roberta he would go to the marketplace, engage in business, trade and transaction. And he also had a flock of sheep and goats of his own etc. For Roma Maharaja been FCV her and at times he would go out with his flock and take it for grazing. And he would also take the flock of goats of the people in the neighborhood that I'm
going out. I'm taking my flock let me take your flock as well. So when Abubakar, the Allahu anhu, assumed the position of a larva, and he succeeded the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the most volatile situation, the most volatile situation that are in shadow the alarm and has said that Salas Habermas
Ramadan sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Ghana who Mirza Moti Rafi Allah they must be that the noble companions are the Allahu anhu boasts the demands of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam appeared to be like a flock of sheep, in a forest infested with predators is Shara Falco. hypocrisy had reared its ugly head. Those that wanted to lay claim to False Prophet would they were in the numbers. Bala Hema della foofy Nakata in LA para Abby, Bihar Talia worry nanny Neha Well firstly, it was my dad Abubakar, who rose to the challenge, and then addressed all the challenges and rescued the oma and united them on a common mission. So some of the young girls pass the remark an LA to La
bolena Manor Hoda Rena now abubaker is a man of power. He is the halifa is ameerul momineen is in the driving seat. Forget about the days where Abubakar will take our flock and graze it. When Satan Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu heard these comments this innocent discussion amongst a few girls of the neighborhood. He said to them Allahu Akbar La de la la banda halochem what you need to do Allah you need to fee and hold on to Allah you a *in a bola No, oh, my daughter? No, oh, my daughter, I will continue taking your flock of goats. And I will milk them and I'm optimistic from Allah. The position in which he has put me will not change me in any way in my interaction with the general
public. Somebody made a very profound deduction from the narrative of use of alayhis salaam, when he was innocently incarcerated, and the two inmates of the jail addressed him regarding the interpretation of their vision. And they said to him in nanorod Camino del bossini Oh fellow inmate of the jail we find you to be a noble person in verily as naraka we observe you to be we find you to be mineral more singing amongst the noble people. And when he assumed the throne when he assumed the throne, and his brothers had come and the tail continues, and you know, we can go into those details at another time. At that time. Also, they said to him, are you hella Aziz? Oh in Allah who have been
shaken cabbie. Run for Ha ha, Donna Mark McKenna in communal masini. Your Majesty, Your Excellency, oh, King, you appear to be a noble man. So a believer is one and of course you're a prophet led to the Euro holy manner similar to the Euro manasi. position, title, one. One accolade. One testimony one certificate. One, you know what? additional recognition, one graduation ceremony, one post higher is not going to change your position. Imagine the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was conferred. What the greatest position yet his humanity. We move on to another Hadith and then give you a practical demonstration of the humility of the prophets Allah ism. So the focus in my session
today is how can I manage the position of authority? Again, the scholars mentioned something so amazing that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he was in the throes of death. I hope the sound is clear. And everybody can hear me adequately you can communicate with brother Ahmed, if all is good.
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in his fatal illness, and then prior to live in this world, he conveyed to us to advise us and he again the scholars say this was a summary of his 23 years. Can you imagine? So it was a 23 years brimming with goodness with greatness with nobility with guidance with direction, and then he summarized those 23 years into words. He gave us a synopsis a synopsis of his impeccable teachings in two words, a Salah Mama malakut, a man lucam fear Allah with regards to the performance of prayer and fear Allah with regards to the treatment of your subjects, your subordinates, those who are under your care, and the scholars say that the aspect of
prayer address the hukou law, your rights towards Allah, and the aspect of kindness to your subjects, address the rights of humans.
If a person can manage restraint, control and regulate himself or herself in a position of authority over someone whom Allah has given him some access etc, then such a person is in all likelihood will honor all the other aspects of his life in terms of his seniors, his spouse, his siblings his neighbors, for in Atlanta GM Villa de bajo la Nina sebelah. In Allah Hi, Karina I Li Yan Kabira. In the fourth chapter of the Quran, in the fourth juice of the Quran, speaking about the arguments between husband and wife, addressing the male addressing the husband, Allah says, if you have an obliging spouse for in a partner calm she is obliged in Fela taboo Eileen sebelah. In Allah, Hakka
Anna Lee and Kabira then do not look for an excuse to inflict pain upon that spouse. Do not look for an excuse to inflict difficulty upon your innocent wife in Allah hochanda Lee and Kabira Wow. remember Allah is Mighty and elevated. So Allah is reminding you that Allah has authority and power over you fee is the monthly yearly fee see setting Mendota who be a of the hora fees set by Bill Emery laser surburban film noir TV we're in number one boo boo nafsa name and Messiah into pseudo can buy an old Quran under this ayah it is written that the I insert a new aids towards the repugnant behavior of those who abuse authority who where there is no crime there is no offense,
there is no folly there is no blemish, but you just want to abuse your employee you want to abuse your you know a subject in in in the case of a ruler or any person over whom Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you some position you are a manager and he is working under you and you are in a senior position. Now you are abusing that authority.
So there is a hadith narrated by Abu Musab Sharia law, who in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that three people will have a dual reward. One is a person from the people of the book, who brought him on on his prophet, and he's the book beat the Torah or the Injeel, etc. And this was prior to the coming of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he his period coincided with the Prophet would have the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and now in the messenger sallallahu Sallam came, then he accepted the the teachings of the Scriptures, which had prophesized the coming of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So prior to the prophethood of the messenger
sallallahu wasallam, he was diligently passionately, religiously upholding the teachings of Salah his Salaam, and then he witness the prophethood of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he embraced the teachings of Islam for such a person is dual reward. Well, Abdul mameluke, either at the hakala he will have tamale here, and then is a slave who is loyal, faithful, obedient and compliant to his master and obedient to his creator. What are your own Canada who am I to have accent de baja allama have accidentally Maha Tata has a father who agilon and a person who had a slave girl back in the days when it was happening, although even when slavery was there, Islam and
carriage the freedom of slaves, Islam and courage, the liberation of slavery of slaves, right? It was an atonement. If you had committed a crime Islam said liberate the slave. Allah said Well, you know what to earn reward for karaca free slaves free slaves. In so many books, you will get the write up of how many companions would have just liberated slaves upon slaves slaves upon slave, just to give them independence and freedom said now Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu would just buy a slave purchase him and give him freedom. That's it. And that's how Satan Abelardo the Allahu anhu and other companions had paid tribute and homage to Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu just Allah who has Iran

my name is Fatima tottaly for yarrabah Ibrahim I will add the unison one musawah neck Genie sumela to Billy, in which he pays tribute to Abubakar for the slaves elaborated. Now
you had a slave girl, you had some degree of authority over Islam says for you is jewel reward you did not abuse. You showed her kindness, respect, honor and dignity. And then you empowered her. And then you liberated her and then you were did her not just understand this, I hope you follow in this year. Clearly we need to digest and absorb this year.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that was the beauty of his teachings. It was just not the sheer utterance of theory, but it was the implementation and the execution of the theory. So just to objectively digress and then I will revert to this hadith and expound on it on a practical analogy in sha Allah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in handwritten vada he said that cuando amarin kulu shaman emilija helia Dr. Moser and data de Mayo, all the practices of the days of darkness have been destroyed and abolish, and they are beneath my feet, and all this type of interest. And usually and well that was been taken and people were being exploited. It's all done and dusted with. And the
first type of money that I'm cancelling out that was owed was the money owed to my own family and that's my own uncle Abbas radi Allahu anhu. And a birth of Yolanda prior to Islam is to give money and he's to take interest on it and that exorbitant amounts were taken and demanded from people. So the messenger sallallahu Sallam instructed for the ending of this year, but he commenced by forgiving and putting an end to the well that was out to his own uncle. He said, All killing and and and and bloodshed and claiming of lives is now over and done. There's no fighting, there's no killing, there's no skirmishes, there's no rivalry. There's no fighting or anything. We're in them
in our own in demeanor, and the first murder that I will overlook is the murder the murder of Wu Robbie, Robbie Harris. So hiraeth was the uncle of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and then his son was Robbie, Robbie. And then he had a child, Canada, Mr. Dunphy, Benny, who they that child was been suckered in by knew who they are. And then there was a crossfire of arrows and in that that child had lost his life. And the province alarmism said I have forgiven this year, and now I advocate you to forgive. So here is the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He He told us that hydrocodone hydrocodone legally the best among you is the one who is kind to his spouse. Now, that was the theory. He didn't just say this and say right, okay, you do it. Well, Anna Lee, and you can ask any of my spouses, I treat them with the greatest amount of kindness. That is why I find it
inconceivable. And I find it to be ludicrous, and I find it to be preposterous. And I find it to be bizarre. When people want to malign the character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam by accusing him of misogyny, how can you de accuse the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of misogyny? No, not at all study his impeccable legacy. Look at the kindness to a woman who can possibly do this. You're in a position of authority. You have a slave girl, you educator you empower her, you give her all the necessary strength, then you liberate her. And with dignity you were the hub for such a person is dual reward. Again, it was a practical demonstration, and not the sheer
utterance of a theory. So when haber was conquered, write the narration of Buhari on the strength of NSO bumalik Kadena haber furama tala Lee, when Allah can get hyper one, by one fat Han Reba, in the 26 Jews in Surah, Mohammed Allah speaks about the conquest of labor. Then amongst those that were captured was a woman by the name of Sophia, who was the daughter of a bit of pub, even after was a rival to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was an adversary was a foe was hostile, his hostility knew no limits. Sophia, the daughter of a been after, was among the captives that came to the prophet SAW
Allahu Allahu wa sallam. Initially she was taken in the care and the custody of another companion whether your loved one who and then someone said to the Prophet sallallahu said, this is the woman of the leader. She's a prominent woman owner of Allah sallallahu wasallam I think it would be best for you. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then selected Sophia Viola and her for himself. So she came from a family between whom that family and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam there was intense hostility. She came as the capital of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam could have kept her in captivity could have kept her as a slave girl. He sallallahu alayhi wasallam empowered her,
liberated her, honored her, dignified her and wedded her and she was then privileged to become the mother of the entire oma. What I mean justice. People do that you are met this chapter of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you want to take one Hadith in isolation, one text in isolation, who can possibly display such character other than the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? akarma Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but in a hurry Burwell Medina de la sala de la Hebrew Sophia for TAO to muslimeen Allah when he met he he, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam spent three days in which the relation with Sophia the Allah Allah once consumated in the initial stage,
the companions were unaware as the messenger sallallahu Sallam keeping as a slave girl, or has he wedded her, and then they said in hijab a half a year, meaning that if he sterilized him veils, then we know that from today he is one of the mothers of the believer. Yesterday, she was a foe, she was hostile, she was an adversary, then she was captured. And the following day, she was privileged and honored and dignified and elevated to becoming the concert of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, absolute authority, total authority and while on the topic
of his sallallahu wasallam his relationship with his spouses, rather your lover and whatnot. So we need to know that Allah subhanho wa Taala had exempted him from maintaining fairness between his palaces. This was a exclusive right conferred upon the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that at your discretion, you can rotate your Knights right to Rue de man, Tasha amin Oh Novato de la Carmen Tasha woman a bit of a man as delta fella and Jonah Holic to Jim and Tasha. You can postpone whomsoever you want to relay command Tasha and you can draw close whomsoever you wish. Were many with the writer and whoever you seek me man as well, from those whom you had put on hold momentarily. Fellow
Jonah, Holly, there is no harm upon you. Of course, this was an exclusive right conferred to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to the general oma Allah subhanho wa Taala had addressed us in the Bron valenta study, and 30 lubaina Nisa evallo Hara stone, follow me Luke will mainly factor the rule
that there are stringent laws that there are stringent laws that govern and regulate how you maintain justice and fairness beat as it made, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not use this arrived leave alone abused it to the extent in his fatal illness where his health would not allow him to move daily to the respective consorts because of the feebleness of his blesseds sacred body. So he he would then inquire from his spouses in an hour then, so tomorrow, where am I going? So they will say, tomorrow is so and so's night? Then you would say again, aina, and Rodan and that was a polite expression of seeking consent, if I can base myself at the house of Sharia law, to
which they agreed, so with their consent, not that he required the consent, yet he took their consent in a very bashful and modest way. So tomorrow where so tomorrow where and they realize the hint was there to say he said a lot ism is seeking formal consent for him to be stationary at one house due to his ill health and to, you know, what, relocate him daily will obviously be tedious, cumbersome and difficult, given his ill health. So behind the law,
we move on to another incident and that is with regards to earthman ben palha. So there is a narration regarding northmen palha. That he was of course, he had the key of the Kaaba
Monday and Thursday during the period of Jahan iya, before the conquest of Makkah, the door of the Kaaba would be open and people would be given access that come in and you can view the Kaaba and have a look at it, etc. Of course, this was their own rituals, they had their own ritual practices, customs norms, through which they would come and perform a circuit around the Kaaba and do their acts of worship in their own way. So,
one day the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam came, this was prior to Hydra, and he sallallahu wasallam came to earthman bentyl ha, and he said to him, oh, man, would you kindly give me access into the Kaaba and Othman bin talha very vehemently declined, and in a very hostile way he refused, and he displayed you know, unbecoming behavior in a very uncouth manner in an uncouth manner. He said, No, not at all. So he sallallahu Sallam said, Oh earthman today, you decline today you refuse, but a day will come, where the keys of that caliber will be in my hands. The keys of that Kaaba will be in my hands and I will be in your position of authority. So,
Othman bentall has said, Oh, well, that will be the day of disgrace and humiliation for the price. So nobody civilized him said no, no, not at all name. In fact, it will be a day of honor and dignity. And then came the conquest of Mecca. And then came the conquest of Makkah. And he sallallahu alayhi wasallam entered as the conqueror of Mecca and many things happen now again, the position of authority can you imagine you've been expelled from this land your native land? You've been driven out remember when he sallallahu Sallam received the first revelation and our mother Khadija rhodiola, and had to Kim sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to wakatobi nofal, the cousin of
Khadija Viola Juana who was familiar with the divine scriptures, etc. and then work on a novella heard the entire happenings and he said that your nation will banish you and expel you and drive you out. And he sallallahu Sallam was surprised and astonished. He said, Well, they banish me, but they refer to me as saw that and I mean, the truthful and the honest. And he said as any person who came with your mission, his nation, the nation then expelled him, and through to the word of what appeared to be no no foul. The people of Mecca the infidels of Makkah, they banished the messenger sallallahu sallam. So yesterday they banished Jesus, they banished him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and they expelled him. And now Allah turns the tables and the narrative has changed. And he sort of lollywood Selim enters Makkah with an army of 10,000 people, and what's the what's the manner in which he comes in? A person is sworn in. There is this big bash there is this big ceremony. There's this big party that's thrown in there is this lavish banquet? There is no it's it's flamboyant. It's colorful. It's leveraged. It's extravagant. Wow. Ah,
if I Mohamed says had a firm had definite hammered of Parana, Abu Zubaydah and Jabir under Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam de Hala Yama factory Makkah in Salalah was seldom entered when Mecca was conquered, while he Imam Mattoon soda, bravo Rojas una de la right in sallallahu wasallam had a black turban on his blessing ahead. And currently while Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yama de la maka Abbey of the fair, the banner and the flag of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he entered Makkah was white. And it also goes on into the narration of the live number for the Allah man who says Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Alana Petit he, I observed the Prophet
sallallahu Sallam mounted on his conveyance wahoo via para su Ratan factory, and in sallallahu wasallam was the reciting Surah Al Fatah. can you possibly imagine? That moment the glory the blessing nature, the sanctity, the serenity, the tranquility, the ambience? Oh my word my body freezes. essentialism entering what FEMA is devoted companions are the alarm on home 10,000 in number he sallallahu Sallam has this black turban he has this white banner is mounted on his Naka on his camera, he's reciting in
Moby Leo fear Allah Allahu dynamin them be kawamata
are many I met de la caja de casa de tema. And then what he sallallahu wasallam does and this this this addresses the point I'm saying he's an Allah ism as a leader, how accessible how amenable he was. You could hold him you could stop him you could engage him you could chat with him. We're in Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam la Yaga Aurora, so who
the world are en de la he hayner Rama, Rama Allah who beat him in fact he
had and the noon Who am I a layer, do Yama su c pata de la ilaha illa Allah He sallallahu wasallam had humbled himself so much not here the high pop in his shoulders, broad chest out standing high and tall with his hay head raised up like who's there who's going to challenge me? He said a lot isn't was the new who Allah rahila T one the reason he is blessing chin was flush on the back of the of the conveyance one narration his blessing beard, the strands of the hair from his blessing beard was on the back of the conveyance.
A person came to him Abdullah animus Rudra Yolanda narrates it and orajel and kalama Rasul Allah is awesome as the messenger surrealism enters Mecca is the Conqueror, it sees de victory is is a person comes to him. He is gripped by the O of the messenger sallallahu sallam, he is overwhelmed by the moment. Sometimes you need to speak to a head of state, right and people people feel conceited, inflated, to say the least. Wow, you know what to I shared platform, you know, with who I'm dying in with and who are these people just regular mortals, man, regular mortals, more than often more infamous than famous, more infamous and famous. That's the reality he sallallahu wasallam said a
time will come before tiama who will be the leaders look at immuno Luca, the most wicked the son of a wicked person. And that's the we we are victims to witness that prophecy of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that if a person has a clean slate he has a clean record, the chances are slim for him to assume the throne because by and large those that come on come there with a cloud of question marks with so much
you know what baggage and different challenges to their life which have soiled their name and blemish their character? So this person comes to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam overwhelmed by the emotion and what did they say whoa in our Lake relax brother relax relax in nama and Abu in nama Anna blue. Let's to be mannequin. I am not a king in nama and Abner Raja Lim, I am the son of a woman from Piraeus. kulu Khadija I am a son and to a woman from the poorest tribe, who would live by eating dry meat. That's my biography. That's my CV. That's my intro. That's my you know what if you want to know who I am, I am a son to a woman from the La Ilaha Illa. Allah, He is the greatest human
my message my point, my brother, my sister is in the position of authority. You could be the boss in your company, you could be the manager on your floor, you could be the senior or the CEO of your company, you could be in an influential position. Now you could be a trustee of an institute, you could be a trustee of your local madrasa or Masjid, you could be elected as a member of parliament. You could be sitting in the house, you could be in any position of authority. Surely you could never ever, ever come close, in any form, shape or size to the position that the prophets allies in gave you. How are you talking to those that are under your employment? How are you given instructions to
those that receive direction from you?
So he sallallahu wasallam then goes into the Kaaba now and after he performed Salah he comes out, everybody is looking at him sallallahu wasallam in great desire, who is the key going to be given to now he sallallahu Sallam says go go on earth man Ben talhah corner a man who was awesome man of man when talhah was the same person who declined in a very uncouth manner and did not give the key to the Prophet sallallahu
selam so it was not retorting in a like manner. It was not dead for tat, it was not getting back at you, I am in the position of authority. If I do the same, then we are perpetuating that same ill feelings. If yesterday I was an employee and today I'm an employer and I do no different well then I am as evil as those that I succeed if not worse. He sallallahu wasallam then call earthman bentyl Hava Nabi sallallahu wasallam then address those that will present he said Jamar shall operation in Allah subhanho wa Taala helia Oh the people of Piraeus, Allah subhanho wa Taala has now demolished your arrogance and your pride. And so mean Adam was the mentor of mankind is from Adam alayhis salam
and Adam was created from soil and then he sallallahu Sallam recited the verse. Yeah you and so in Allah panna comin Zachary nhuan Salvadoran gunshow van watabe, Lolita rafo, was created you in a kalapana comienza Carranza, male and female which are Nikon and watabe. So, in Arabic, you have shuru, you have kabyle, you have passive, you have button, you have babila, it breaks down into branches, tribes, sect group and all these various forms that you have is purely for identification and not superiority. So majelis Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam set down for karma la la, la la, la la cabeza de and said no, and he stood up, and the key
of the Kaaba was in the hands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, Allah said in Juma Alana Elijah bata Massey Taya, so the family of abass and the family of nebulae Salaam, they were known to give water to the pilgrims
mess GDL haraam, Carmen
de Sabine de la, they had this honor and privilege for a long time, and that was to give water to the pilgrims. So alira Viola said only be over luck combined for us to positive things. We have the honor of giving water to the pilgrims give us the key of the Kaaba, and we can be the custodians of the Kaaba, and we can also be those who give water to the pilgrims. This was the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And it was within the family but what did the messenger sallallahu wasallam do? He said call Earth man and tell her and he said oh Earth man, you take it from me, here is the key and I'm just not giving it to you today. A lot of work but you declined you
refuse. I'm giving it to you tirely that then Holly that turn this key will now remain with you and your progeny tell tiama and then he sallallahu Sallam recited the verse of the Jews of the Quran, fourth chapter in Allah Moroccan and to Abdullah amanatullah, Angelica, Canton Beynon, Nancy and Docomo believe that Allah has instructed you to return that trust to its rightful owners. Again, a position of authority, the messenger sallallahu wasallam. Display dignity and authority display dignity and respect. And that's that's that's the message. That's what we want to explain and that's what we want to expound upon.
When he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went for ombre and the disbelievers denied him access. And that is when her day BIA took place. And Allah revealed the verse and most of the scholars of the seed and experts on the exegesis of the Quran tell you that this ayah fits the description of the hostility of the infidels of Makkah, why men are by Lama Mima? manera messenger Allah He Karachi has small WhatsApp, I feel fi hora beha. And who can be a greater oppressor than the one who prevents people from frequently in the masajid of Allah, and who toils to destroy the house of Allah? And this refers to the polytheists of Makkah. So that was the abuse of authority, that because they were
in charge, they denied vaman known negative in no way when you access the Kaaba, and then when the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam conquers Makkah and Subhana Allah now he is in a position of authority. He is in a position of authority. What did he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do and there's a verse of the Quran again, what are your gentlemen Nikon Shana Andrew Coleman, whether you're German Nikon, Shana, Andrew Coleman and so Dooku Mani Masjid al Haram, and
Dude, and let it not be that the enmity and the hostility of a nation provokes you to injustice. era de leeuw be just who are a lot of trouble a taqwa that is close to taqwa. So he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the occasion of the conquest of Makkah. He made a general pattern. He forgave people in their numbers. He forgave people in the numbers. In fact, there is a verse of the Quran, there is a verse of the Quran.
And we read this quite often in the chapter Sora to the ballot, in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says what and the hilum behind well, better than I will now just wrap up on this as well in sha Allah will enter hidden behind the ballot and the word hello Nia has been explored authentically in the authentic democracy by the scholars in two ways. One translation and I will expound on that which is relevant to our discussion, when the handloom beheld ballad that this city has been made hallel for you, which means at the conquest of Makkah, the sanctity of the Kaaba was lifted for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam momentarily and he was given the consent to avenge and take
revenge against those who had inflicted pain upon him by Allah Himself. And you can see this in the tafazzin one alone behind the ballot at East Allis and then gave the historical hood bytes in zero to Mr. phi and you can read it there in the Lahore Rama Makita, Yamaha Samajwadi will
Manila Yeoman Yama that Allah has made Mecca sacred from the day he created it and the sanctity will remain till the end of time for that year. Hello Libra. In your video Bella he will yummy. It is free coffee hi Adama. It's not permissible for any person who believes in Allah and the final day to kill any person or cause any bloodshed here in the presence of the government of Allah who can Amira whoever enters in the presence of the Kaaba, he is safe and secure.
Welcome to hell lillia hide in Ghana tablea while at the helm lulea hiding Yoku Nova de and it was never made such that the sanctity was sanctity was lifted for any person prior to me, nor will this occur for anyone after me. But at this moment, ally has given me consent, that even in the Kaaba, if I deem it necessary, and I feel somebody is crime and offense is unpardonable and warrants that he be intercepted, apprehended and retribution be meted out against him in the Kaaba, then I will do it. Can you imagine when a person is in his glory and in his mind and it's happening, it's very difficult to hold his reins his motorcycle Anna and as they would say, in Arabic Mottola por la
bella Gom. You can hold the reins of this horse, this man is in his glory. And I just have a thought of another incident I'll try and mentioned that and wrap it up. So behind Allah and who walks in at that time, Allah gives him the consent Allah give them the consent, you deem it necessary apprehend and even in the Kaaba, you can take revenge, and the person by the name of bourbon as well walks in kenisha D, the other ill muslimeen he had inflicted great pain to the believers. Nay, he had stabbed a dagger into the body of Zainab rhodiola and her the eldest daughter of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And she sustained a wound because of this infliction, which ultimately claimed her life
though she lived on. Sometimes you meet up in an accident and you live beyond, but the injuries sustained in that accident. You never recover from it. You have backaches for the rest of your life. You have mobility issues for the rest of your life. So consent from Allah, he's the conqueror of the mecca of Makkah, he is in a sorority, Allah says if you deem it necessary, legislated in the Quran, you want to execute you want to take revenge do so it coincides have bourbon as well. The man who had claimed the life of his daughter, through the infliction cheap lived on and she passed away they after after a period of time, he walks in and Subhan Allah, the noble companion say oh Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Harbin has walked in, and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam allows him and affords him a time to come forward. He comes forward he apologizes and the messenger sallallahu wasallam. unconditionally forgives him. He Salah is some unconditionally forgives him and Aslam. He becomes
A believer and he becomes a great companion or the Allah subhanho. I'll leave you with one incident and will end
ma Viola Han who was entered into some diplomatic agreement with certain tribes and people, not believers. There was some agreement diplomatic ceasefire, no fighting etc. And this dimension enable caffeine and the desire was a matter whorfin amin tominaga anathan from below him Allah Sawa inna la la, la la la la sabana la Vina cafaro sabato in your jeans Oh, you could read it in a blue cat here under this area. This incident. So when the duration of the ceasefire had lapsed, so it was for a month or whatever the duration it had lapse signal Mahavira, the olana had posted people on the peripheries on the boundaries, and they were sitting in ambush. And this was a very strategic move.
And it was a battle tactic from Cigna mahavihara, the Allahu anhu, that when the month lapses, and the duration has expired, and now we don't have any contract of ceasefire, seize the moment, ambush them, infiltrate them and conquered the cities. So we have not defaulted. We have not defaulted, because the period has lapsed, and you will capitalize on the oblivious nature because they wouldn't realize that you know what the year has lapsed or the period has passed. It just happens so you're not so vigilant and conscious and careful. And from a battle perspective, the strategy proved to be very fruitful. So he had posted his people. They were on the borders, the night pass, the duration
expired, and they started making inroads and they started conquering town after town, city after city in your glory in your mind. Another city falls another town falls another place conquered, conquered, conquered. You move in its mind its glory. It's happening. You know what position authority is working You the man You reign supreme. And then hamara de la mano says Yamaha via waka
waka en la vida mahalo Mojave Let there be loyalty and let there be no deception and delusion. Let there be no deception and delusion. So Satan, Amaya turns around and he says What is this? Oh Amma radi Allahu anhu. He said, I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying that if you have ended an agreement with a nation, you have an agreement with a tenant. And the next day, if it ended on the 31st of December, you just come in evict your tenant. No, that's not how it works. Or you had you know what, taken someone for probation, three months of employment, and then you don't remind him that three months is ending tomorrow. And next day, you just close the gate? And he says no,
listen, there's no excess three months have labs, you know, so you don't have the courtesy or the dignity to communicate it or to remind him or to send him an alert or to send a notice. So I entered the Prophet sallallahu wasallam saying that if you entered into an agreement with someone, a nation, a tribe, and that had ended, then you cannot wage war against them until you have not informed them that now they are no longer diplomatic understanding. And the ceasefire understanding has now ended. So take your precaution and we will take our precaution so that you don't ambush them. Allahu Akbar, at its best, if it was asked, we would be like, well, I really know. So what's conquered is done.
Going beyond this point, I will observe that etiquette said no more are We are the alarm I know, then took a step back and return the cities to those people from whom he conquered. Apologies. You know what I've just been informed that that was an overstep of my position and authority. One of my colleagues had informed me that my Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, it alerted us that if we end I need to notify you in advance. Hence, we cannot do what we did. So we return back your land to you wafaa or love other. That's the rich legacy. That's the impeccable teachings. And that's the message of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that stand tall in authority. If you can manage
that authority, my brother and my sister, and remember, authority doesn't have to be sitting on the throne, as I cited different examples in your day to day activities. Just somebody coming to ask you for a favor. The other day my dad mentioned this to me and my siblings, and I really acknowledged him for it. He said be such that people can appreciate
You, even if you are not one who can deliver on the request of people, somebody needs a job, somebody needs a loan, somebody needs grace in the payment and you're unable to accommodate it, but let it be such that your body language and your demeanor and your disposition is such that from a distance people say I can approach him. A child says I can ask this uncle, a senior says I can approach this man, an equal says he is approachable he is accessible. Let it not be that your body language gives off such authority day you come close to me. You speak to my spokesman you don't approach me I'm in accessible. That's not the teachings of our Deen. May Allah grant us humility.
May Allah grant us simplicity and May Allah grant us the ability to execute the teachings of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in all positions in which we are in the LA hurricane alley and Kabira Allah reminds you if you have authority over someone, Allah has way more authority over you. Or sallallahu wasallam ala nabina Muhammad, Allah le he was happy he ultramarine Well, hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakato
