Ittebaa – The Intention – The Sunnah in Light of the Quran – 15 October 2012
Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu hurry Okay, now how do I know a lot of Sudan Karim Allah bird for the layman? a *load of legend. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim publish likely assadi were silly emri while on iraq data melissani of Coco Lee probenecid nerima. In our previous class, we learned about what the sooner is, what is the sooner
that literally, linguistically sooner is a path away? Whether it is good, or it is bad, that's the literal meaning what's the technical meaning of the word sooner?
It is the way of who? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam What does that include his ways, what do that include? actions, his sayings as well as his approvals when it comes to the sayings of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the sooner that is earlier, can you give me an example?
Let me tell you about some a hadith and you guess, or other you make an educated guess okay? Or whether it is the Napoleon earlier or the Kriya. Okay. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Son, Luca mela at moonee. Valley pray as you see me praying, which kind of Sunnah is this? Raise your hand? Raise your hand. If holy, yeah, it's a statement, right? Because he said, You believers should pray. Just as you see me praying. He's giving us a command. So when we pray as he prayed, then we are following so now.
And so that our narrative about the prophets are loving to send them that when he said something, he repeated it three times until it was fully understood. And that when he encountered people, he greeted them as well. Three times? What kind of sin is this? Fairly? Yeah, because this hadith tells us about the action of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. That how when he mentioned something important, he would mention it three times. And when he met some people, he would also greet them. Another Hadees tells us that I'm going to ask he narrated that once. They were traveling, and in the night, he entered the state of Geneva. And in the morning, he was supposed to take a bath,
basically, in order to pray Salah, but it was very cold. So he was afraid that if he took a bath, he would become extremely sick. So he was in the state of ritual impurity, but he just dipped a mom and he prayed on the prophets autolysin and found out he asked him that you prayed while you were in the state of Geneva, and you only did a moon. And he said, meaning American or else he said, I heard the statement of a lot and do not kill yourselves. This is why I just did the Mo. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam laughed. He laughed a lot. What kind of Hadith is this? What kind of sin? does this tell us off the query? Yeah. Because his laughing was his approval. Okay.
And other had these deltas that are modeled later on who once he passed by Hasani been Sabbath when Hassan who are and who was reciting poetry in the masjid, and our model to learn who gave him Look, that How dare you recite poetry in the masjid?
And heaven forbid, he replied, that I used to recite poetry in this mosque, in the presence of someone better than you.
What is this? What is this the criteria, right? Because it shows that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam approved of it when he saw him reciting poetry in the mustard. Another had these elders the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said do not drink water in one gulp like a camel. But take it in two or three installments meaning take it in two or three sips what kind of soon as this totally because he said do not drink like this. Okay, he gave an instruction.
Another had these elders the prophets that a lot is that him and his companions performed ablution from a water bag belonging to an unbelieving woman.
Fairly Yeah, it tells us about the feral the action of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that he performed will do from a water skin that belong to and are Muslim. And so the lower narrative one night and orphan and I prayed behind the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and Elaine was standing behind us forming a roll by herself.
Duck really good because he approved of ohms to name praying behind them alone. I there was no other woman standing next to her. Right. So you see every Hadees every Hadees. It is either Kalia fairly or the Korean sometimes it may even have more than that. Right? It might be coli as well as fairly. Okay, it may have some overlap. But the point over here is that every Hadees will tell us about one of these three
Okay, Kalia Fairley or the Korea. Okay, let's continue
chapter number three as soon as feasible in the center in light of the Quran, meaning what is the position of the Sunnah? What does the Quran say about the Sunnah? Okay, what importance does the Quran give to the Sunnah? What do we find out about the position of the sinner from the Quran? Now, all Muslims, they believe in the Quran, correct? Because Muslims are Who? Who believe in Hamilton about a salon who believe in the revelation that he brought that he was given? And who believed that the Quran they follow the Quran, they're Muslim. And if a person rejects the Quran, then is he even considered a Muslim? No, will other Muslims accept him as a Muslim? No, every person believes in the
Quran as a word of Allah. Right? So as a result of that, people realize the importance of the Quran, right? people realize that yes, when I answer something, you have to do it when something is found in the Quran, we have to do it. It's not disputed. But when it comes to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, do you see that people are generally like confused, right? People have their own opinions. Some say that Oh, you're supposed to follow the Sunnah and others say so what if it's a Sunnah? What's the big deal? Right? Some say that following the Sunnah means that you are, you know, relying on on sources that are not authentic, right because they doubt the authenticity, the
correctness of the Hadith, which in itself is another topic, right? But we see that there is some confusion amongst the people with regards to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu is that do we have to follow it or we don't have to follow it isn't necessary. What's the big deal if we don't? So let's see what the Quran tells us about the position of the Sunnah. First of all, we learn that it is obligatory to obey the commands of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam in the matter of religion. When it comes to the commands of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, then the Quran tells us that we have to obey Him, we have to follow Him we don't have a choice. A command coming from the
Prophet sallallahu Sallam is what an obligation on us, who tells us that the Quran itself tells us where throttle and fell I number 20 Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, you have Latina amanu or you have believed Oakley or LA ha, what a Sula who obey Allah and His Messenger, while at one lower and who was unknown test maroon and do not turn away from him while you listen.
Meaning when you have heard the command of Allah, then what should you do? What should you do? Follow it. And when you have heard the command of the prophets that a lot of them then what should you do? Follow that as well. You don't have a choice. When it comes to the commands of the Quran. When it comes to the commands from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam you have to obey you have to follow
and especially when you have come to know what unto the sinner and why you hear meaning when you know when you have been called when you have found out then you have to follow. Remember, Rahim Allah He said that I read the whole Quran and I found that Allah has ordered us to obey the prophets of Allah said of 33 times. He found 33 evidences in the Quran that tells us that Allah subhanaw taala has told us to follow who the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
it will kill you. He found more than 100 verses that prove that it is an obligation upon us to follow the Prophet sallallahu salah
and some of these evidences are mentioned over here. Likewise, we see in the Quran, the next verse that's mentioned over here, which is in sort of the new eye number 56 that will appeal salata what, to Jakarta, and establish the prayer and give this occur. What are clear over Seoul and obey the messenger, La La come to her moon so that you may be shown mercy.
What three commands are given over here? establish the prayer, give this a care and obey the messenger.
Is it mandatory for us to pray? Yes. Is it mandatory and people to give to that as well? Yes. So if it's mandatory to pray and gives a cat that what about obedience to the messenger? That is also mandatory? Because it's mentioned in the same sentence, right in the same instructions, establish the prayer give this a care, obey the messenger law come to the moon so that you may be shown mercy instead. insalata Nisa I number at a loss of penance artists as mayor of la sala *a, the author of La whoever obeys the messenger has a
In fact obeyed Allah is the one who obeys the messenger who is the obeying in reality. Allah aumento one law and whoever turns away from Santa garlin him Harefield law that we have not sent you or prophets are allowed to send them over them as a guardian, meaning then you're not responsible. obeying the messenger
is important, just as it is important to obey Allah soprano. And when Allah has told us to follow the messenger than following the messenger is in reality, obeying a law. And if a person disobeys, the messenger does not follow his weight, and who is he disobeying? Unless
and if a person turns away from the messenger, then Allah says the law Prophet, you're not responsible for the meaning Allah will deal with them. Allah will hold them accountable, Allah will hold them responsible for their turning away for their disobedience. So we see that turning away from the messenger sallallahu sallam, is it a small thing? Not at all. It's a big thing. It's a big deal. Then we learn into massage and number 64, that women are suddenly Pamela Solon Illallah utara B is Neela. And we did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by the permission of Allah, every single messenger who was sent by Allah, he was sent why, so that the people obey Him, so that the
people follow him. Because if a loved one did he could have just sent the scripture as well. If the scripture the book was sufficient for the guidance of mankind, then Allah would have only sent the Scripture. But we see that with every scripture that Allah sent, who did he send as well? A messenger, a carrier of that scripture ricciarelli salobre. In g musasa, was given the total, Muhammad savasana was given the Quran. So every messenger whom Allah sent was supposed to be followed and obeyed by his people. And this means that if people disobeyed their messenger, rejected their messenger did not follow Him, then what was their end? What was their outcome?
What was their outcome? What do we learn in the Quran? Those people who did not follow their messengers? What was their outcome? punishment right. inshallah you will learn about the various nations of the past people of New Zealand people of our people of the moon, people, different different nations, when they disobey their messengers, what was their outcome, punishment in this world? So likewise, when the prophets of Allah said it was sent by Allah, why was he sent? So that we just say, Yes, we believe in him as the messenger and that's it. No, so that we follow him. He brought the revelation and also the explanation of the revelation, how we are to understand it, how
we are to live it how we are to observe it. In the Quran, Allah tells us that will enable the karate to binary nasty man lucilla illa him and we have revealed the vicar revelation upon you so that you make it clear to the people as to what has been revealed on them. So every prophets job was to explain the religion to the people. And if the people don't follow the messenger, then do they understand the religion? No, you can't understand the religion. So every messenger that was sent was sent to be obeyed by his people. Then we learned a lot of parents artists and sort of earlier and Ron i 132, that will appear Allahu Allah will soon learn law come to her moon, obey Allah and the
messenger, so that you may obtain mercy, obey Allah and the messenger. So that Allah will show mercy upon you. And if you don't obey Allah, if you don't obey the messenger, then a person will be deprived of what he will be deprived of the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. Then we also learn certain Missa and number 59. That Yeah, you have levena Amano. After your aloha well through your over soul, what will remain calm? Or you have believed, obey Allah and obey the messenger? And who else are you to obey and also obey the leaders among you those people in authority for internetseiten fishy in and if you disagree over anything, follow do who in Allahu wa Massoud then
refer it to Allah and the messenger in kuntum to manana biLlahi. While yo mill, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day there Lika hieron that is the best way What are senuto Wheeler and the best in results? In this ayah what do we see Allah starting the believers obey Allah, His Messenger and those people who are in authority among you. So if we are required to obey our leaders, right, whether it is a scholar or
Any kind of leader if we are to obey them, then you think it's not important for us to obey Allah? Of course, it is. You think it's not important for us to obey the messenger? Of course it is. Think about it, when you are working somewhere, when you are living somewhere you are supposed to follow the rules, you are supposed to obey the authority and if you don't, then there are serious consequences. Likewise, whose world are we living in? Allah soprano Tada. So we have to obey Allah, whose religion are we following the one that are lessened? And who's the leader? In that religion? The Prophet sallallahu said because he's the one who brought that religion to us explain that
religion to us. So we are all supposed to follow him. If we are to follow other human beings obey them, then we also have to obey the best human being Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, it's necessary that we follow him to and if you look at this verse, what has been mentioned? That when you do have a dispute concerning something, then you should refer that matter to Allah and His Messenger, any matter of dispute differences that may exist between you then where is the solution with Allah and the messenger meaning turn towards the religion during towards the Quran, and the Sunnah of the messenger? sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And if you do that, what does Allah say? Delica hyaluron What
are Sen Wheeler, you'll find the best answer, you'll find the best solution, the best course of action, and it's also best interweaved in result, meaning if you refer your matters to align as messenger, you follow the Quran and Sunnah, then you will have the best results in whatever you do. And if you stay away from the Sunnah of the messenger, then what's going to happen you won't have the best result. So success in the Zuni and Africa is based on what obeying Allah and His Messenger obeying the messenger is necessary.
Then we don't insert the Nyssa I number 65.
There are lots of penalties this fella what a bigger let me know soon. But no by your Lord. They will not truly believe the man of the people is not accepted. Their Eman is not complete. Their Eman would have a problem in it unless and until What had you hachimura FEMA shadowbane home until they make you a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves that whenever they do have a dispute, who do they refer to you? Whose decision do they accept yours whose final judgment to the follow yours unless they do that their Eman is not complete their Eman is not acceptable. So what does this ayah clearly show to us that following the messenger
is a requirement of our Eman? It's a requirement of faith that if a person obeys the messenger, then his email is acceptable. And if he disobeys disregards the commands of the messenger, then there's a deficiency in his email. There's a problem with it. So much then meaning after knowing about your final judgment, layer doofy unforeseen Hello, Jim mimica later, where you suddenly move the sliema that upon finding out your judgment, then they find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged and submit in full and willing submission, meaning that they don't just look at your submit that What did you say concerning a particular issue, but that they also accepted? How do they
accept it wholeheartedly, willingly. They also submit to it meaning they also follow it they also do it because sometimes we think it's sufficient to say yes, we believe in the messenger. Yes, we're supposed to follow him. But when it comes to his Sunnah, unless and until we actually follow the Sunnah, observed this, we're not doing 100% right. So in order to do things in the right way, what is necessary, accepting his authority, acknowledging his authority, accepting his decision, and also observing it obeying Him
for obedience is necessary when you suddenly Muslim as submitting willingly to his commands is necessary.
Without it is not acceptable.
Then we also learn instead of Mohammed I number 33, that Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah, are you letting me know of your Allaha will appear Rasulullah when a tubal cleaner or medical, that all you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the messenger, and do not invalidate your deeds? Do not nullify your deeds, do not waste your deeds. What does this ayah show that if a person does not obey Allah does not
With the messenger, then what will happen to his deeds?
What will happen to his deeds, then they'll be nullified, they'll be cancelled, they won't carry any weight, they'll be worthless. Why? Because deeds are only acceptable to a loss of data when they are done for his sake, and secondly, in the way that he likes, and what is the way that he likes the way of the prophets of Allah. So these are the two conditions for the acceptance of deeds, sincerity, and conformity. If these two, one or both are missing, then an action is invalid, it does not carry any weight whatsoever. So Allah tells us that all this hard work that you're doing all this effort that you're putting, do it right, don't waste your efforts. Don't nullify your deeds. You know,
sometimes, when you're driving, even when you're traveling even does it become hard? does it become hard? Yeah. Or is it? Okay, you're taking a two hour flight three hour road trip? It's okay. Not a big deal. You do get tired, don't you? Thank you for putting in so much effort. So much of your time is going into it? Shouldn't you do it in the right way? So that action, that effort also becomes meaningful? that effort also brings the reward, shouldn't you? Yes. So how can you do that? That when you're traveling, you follow the Sunnah of traveling as well, that as you step out of your house, you step out in the manner that the prophets have about a sudden stepped out of his house,
you say the same of golf. Right? You say the same words that he said, when you get into your vehicle. As you're sitting, you're ready to set off then you say there are, which he said. So that this whole effort that you're putting into driving and into traveling, even that becomes an Riba even that becomes an act of worship, right? Likewise, a person could be in a praying Salah. Okay, but if he's not praying in the manner that the prophets Allah said in prayer, in the manner that he guided all that effort, that going into praying Salah would be wasted, right? Because if Salah is sprayed in the wrong way, in the wrong way that a person is not taking care of his sujood of his
record, then that's what I will be invalid. Like that man who came and prayed. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him that it was good for Sally, for inoculum to go and repeat your prayer because you have not prayed. The man went and repeated his prayer. And he came back and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the same thing to him, go and repeat it again.
And this happened a number of times until that man said, I'm sorry, I don't know how to pray them. You teach me how to pray. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him that when you pray, how should you pray with lamattina when you stand them stand still. And when you go to record, then stay in record for a moment and then get up when you get up, then stay in that position for a moment and then go down now that you're whizzing through Salah, you can't even tell between the different steps of Salah.
Right? So anything that we do in life, whether it is directly related to religion, or indirectly related to pleasing Allah subhanaw taala, because you all have learned about the definition of Reba. Reba is not just ritual acts of worship, but anything that a person can do in the right way to please Allah. So no matter what we are doing, how should we do it in the way that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did? Right in the way that he did? So that no action is wasted? Allah says well as to both Lulu Urmila condone, nullify your deeds, don't waste them. Don't invalidate them.
Then we also learn into little hashtag number seven, that Allah says wema de como la Sol for Hulu, whatever the messenger gives to you, then take it meaning any instruction, any command, what ever he gives you. Take it, accept it, follow it, do it.
A woman a woman who and whatever he stops you from, then what should you do? Franco Who? Then stop from it. If he has prohibited you from something, then stay away from it, don't do it. What the law and fear a law. Look at the warning over here. Fear Allah, that if you don't follow the messenger, that Allah will hold you accountable.
Allah can inflict this punishment upon you. If you disregard the commands the instructions of the messenger. If you don't give importance to his instructions, then this is a serious matter. Allah says what the law if you're a law in the law should either cop Indeed Allah is severe in retribution. This is a threat of punishment for who, for those who disregard the commands of the profits of the Father center in the law should either be severe in retribution
Therefore, we learned that following the way of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, especially his commands, his instructions, what is it? It is an obligation upon us.
It is an obligation upon us just as Salah is just as a cat is, this is also an obligation. Then we learned that obedience of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and following him ensures success.
First of all, when a person follows the messenger, then what is he doing?
He's doing the right thing, right? He's fulfilling an obligation. Secondly, what's the benefit? The benefit is that when you follow the messenger then success is guaranteed. Success is guaranteed. Where do we learn that from from the Quran. In surah to noon, I have 50 to a last panel Dallas's were mejor para la hora Sula, who were while shala where Ducky for Ola ecoman is that whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, and he fears Allah. And he also has taqwa of Allah than those people who are there for his own, they are successful.
They're achievers, achievers, of what their goals, they will be successful. So what are the four steps to success that we learn in this ayah? What are they, first of all, obeying Allah? Secondly, obeying the messenger of a pseudo law. Third, thirdly, having fear of Allah And fourthly, having taqwa of Allah,
then this leads to success.
In the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, there were many times, many times, you know, where it was clear to people that following him, meant success, and disobeying him meant failure. Can you think of an example, a very common example,
commonly quoted example for this? at the Battle of words, what happened? Because of disobedience to the command of the prophets, a lot of artists and other believers suffered, right, they suffered a great loss. So when they follow the messenger, they were successful, you might say, but now, is it really that relevant? Yes, it is. Yes, it is. Because we are in need of success in this world, and also in the hereafter. Also in the Hereafter, in this world, especially, you know, living in sin as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said things that we tend to ignore a lot. This leads to success in this world as well. For example, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his habit was that when he would wake
up in the morning, before putting his hand into a bucket of water, he would wash his hands first. And this is what he instructed us to do as well. That wash your hand before putting it into a bucket of water.
Is there any benefit in that?
Is there? Yes, because you don't know your hand may be dirty. Right? You don't know there might be something on your hand, and you can't see it, because you were sleeping. Right? So when you woken up, if you put your hand as it is in the bucket of water, it's going to make the whole water contaminated. And if you drink that water, if you wash your hands and your face and your body with it, what's going to happen? You won't be clean. Right? You might actually get some disease or something, right. Likewise, for using the toilet, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, his son Nawaz and this is the instruction that he gave to the people as well. That use the left hand to clean yourself
to wipe yourself not the right hand. Why?
Because you eat with your right hand.
Right? You might say that Oh, but we use soap afterwards our hands become clean. Okay, but you could be in a place where you don't have access to soap. Or even despite using soap, all the germs are not gone. All the bacteria has not gone you know in those tv adverts to show that have used this particular soap than 100% germs are gone. But if you use only this one then look there's still germs remaining on your hands. Right? So there could be you don't know. But if you follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam then you're fine. Correct. So, obedience to the messengers that a lot of them is the way to success in this life as well as in the hereafter. Insert a note if 51 we learn
in Americana Colette me Nina either do it Allahu wa su de Leah Kuma baina home and your colusa Marina what Aparna? What will Erica whom will mostly Hoon? The only statement of the true believers when they're called to Allah and His messenger to judge between them is that they say we hear and we obey. Allah says concerning them.
And those are the successful. Those who respond to the call of Allah, those who respond to the call of the messenger that Allah will give them success. In total Azerbaijan 71 woman youth a la hora Sula, who faqad affairs a fosun or Lena. whoever obeys Elian is messenger than in fact, he has certainly attained a great attainment.
He is not just successful in an ordinary way, no, he is the most successful person he has achieved the great success, the greatest success for the phazzer fosun or Lima because obedience to Allah and His messenger is the key to success in the hereafter. And if a person is successful in the year after, that is a greatest attainment that instead of the Nyssa i a 13. One minute a la hora Sula, who you the one who Jeanette in that dream and practical and how Holly Dena Fie her, whether legal fosun or Liam. And whoever obeys Allah and His messenger will be admitted by him to gardens in paradise under which reverse law abiding eternally they're in, and that is the great attainment. So
a person who follows the Prophet sallallahu Sallam close closely, carefully, then where will he be in
Indiana, and that is the great success with early confuzzled of him. And if a person does not follow the messenger, the result will be opposite of that. It will be different from this, if obedience to Him leads to gender, then disobedience would lead were the opposite of gender.
So this is a serious matter,
a very serious matter.
Then we learned that deeds that are performed according to the commands of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will receive a full reward, a full reward, meaning if a person consciously carefully, does whatever he does in the right way, in the way that Allah likes in the way that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught, then he will get 100% on that action, okay, each D that we do is being graded, you understand? each action that we do is being graded
because we are going to be recompense for it.
Right, depending on the quality of the deed, depending on how it was performed with what intention, it is graded. So if a person does a particular action, according to the commands of a lot and the messenger, then he will get how much 100% and if a person ignores the commands of the messenger concerning that action, then will he get 100%? No, no, he won't. What's the evidence of this internal hard drive I have 14 Allah says we're into three are la hora Sula, who lay your lidcombe min aromaticum Shea.
And if you obey Allah and His Messenger, he will not deprive you from your deeds of anything. Now you let come in America.
Allah will not cause you any laws concerning your actions, meaning, you will receive full reward for your actions. those actions will not be nullified and the reward will not be nullified. You will get 100% in the love of food over him Indeed Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. So in other words, the more a person follows the sooner
the more accepted and rewarded his deeds are and the less a person follows the sooner than the less accepted and the less rewarded hesitates.
So if you want your deeds to be accepted by Allah, and also greatly rewarded by Allah, then what do we have to do? We have to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallaahu sadhana, then forgiveness of sins, is conditional to obedience of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and following him. If we want our sins to be forgiven, if we want our sins to be forgiven, then what do we need to do? obey the messenger, obey Allah and obey the messenger and also follow the messenger so long?
What do we think is the means of seeking forgiveness for our sins? do stuff, right? that just says stuff with Allah. Well, I'm sorry, please forgive me. But along with seeking forgiveness, verbally, we also have to do something. We have to show that we have left that state of disobedience and now we are going to be obedient to Allah.
Right? But how can we show it to Allah that we are obedient to Him by obeying the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when a person obeys the messenger, then his sins will be forgiven? Allah says and sort of earlier on is 31 that all in contempt to Hebron Allah
Hey, Toby Rooney, say, Omar homosassa them to the people that if you love Allah, then follow me. If you love Allah, then follow Who? The messenger sallallahu sallam, what's the result of that? You become Allah. Allah would love you to you love Allah. You want a lotta love you, then what do you have to do? follow the messenger, you become Allah then Allah will love you. Moreover, well they look on the Nuba COMM And he will also forgive you your sins. Allah has a food over him and Allah is Forgiving, and merciful. Desire teaches us many, many things. First of all, the data shows to us that if we love Allah, do we say that we love him? Are you one of those people who loves Allah? Do
we all claim that we love and love? Yes. Then what do we have to do? Prove that love? Show that love? If there's any human being whom you love? How do you show them your love?
How, for example, your mother? How would you show your love to your mother? Okay, you listen to her, what else? Can you do that what she wants you to do? Right? Do that which she gets really happy by? Right? What else would you do? Typically, I'm talking about real things. What would you do? Really, if you love someone, how do you show your love to them?
You give them a gift, right? You help them. When you love someone, you show your love to them, by doing anything and everything that could make them happy. Whether it is giving them a gift, or bringing them a glass of water, or wearing the clothes that they want you to where, or saying the things that they want you to say or studying what they want you to study or marry someone whom they want you to marry. Right? You do anything and everything? What will make them happy.
Right? So how is it that we love Allah? How is it that we love Allah? And we don't have to do anything to make him happy? We have to do something to make him happy, too. Right? And what is it that we can do to make a law happy? What is it that will make him happy with us, when we follow and obey the messenger? So
we have to obey the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in order to make Allah happy. You know why? Because he was of those people whom Allah was pleased with. Allah was happy with him.
Allah was pleased with him so much, that Allah made him pleased well, so for your illegal book of adulto, that you will be happy or profitable.
Right? So allow us happy with him. So if we want to show our love to Allah, then we have to follow who the messenger sallallahu is, because his ways were the best. His rabada was accepted his daraz Allah accepted his deeds Allah liked, right, his efforts, his driving, everything that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did, Allah approved of what he approved of Allah subhanaw taala loves those actions. So if we do them, then we will make Allah happy. And when we will make a lot happy, then what does Allah say? You have in common law, that Allah will also love you.
And we always wonder, you know, we love Allah. But does he love me?
Do you have this question sometimes in your head? I wonder if Allah loves me, I wonder what my rank is what my position is in the sight of Allah.
Because sometimes we feel that Yeah, Allah loves us when things are going really well. And the woman we get sick, or the woman we get, you know, something's not working out for us. We think Allah is upset with us. Right? This is what we think differently. But what's the criteria? What's the criteria that when you follow the sooner than that is a sign that Allah loves you. That is a sign that Allah loves you. The more a person follows the Sunnah, the more Allah loves him, and everyone is not able to follow the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Many people know a lot but they're not able to follow him. If a person is given the ability to follow the messengers on a lot of setup that shows
that Allah loves him. And the added benefit is that Allah will also forgive you your sins will not hold the food over him. Then we also learned obedience of Allah and His messenger will elevate one to the ranks of those whom Allah favored. When a person follows the way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that his rank will be immediately elevated to the rank of who, those whom Allah has favored. interest and Nyssa is 69. We learn what minute a letter will soon
For Ola Kamara, levina anomala who are lay him and whoever obeys Allah and the messenger, then those people will be with the ones upon whom Allah has bestowed favor into the father. What do I do we make what there are, do we make a dinner Serato Mr. Team Serato ladies Latina, and underlay him. So, if a person follows the messenger, then he will be among Who? And Latina. And I'm fairly mean and nabin was the theme? Was she her there was slightly hain or hessonite Willa, aka Rafi,
who are they whom Allah is happy with? Whom Allah has bestowed favor upon them? They are the prophets, the steadfast affirms of truth, the martyrs and the righteous and excellent are those as companions. So what does it show to us that when a person follows the son of the Prophet sort of autism, his rank is immediately promoted. Okay, it's increased, he goes higher in the sight of a loss.
And you might wonder, what's the relationship between following the Sunnah, and being of the highest of the high? What's the relation between that? What's the connection between that if you think about it, if a person works an ordinary job, ordinary job, let's say he's just transporting goods from one place to the other, he has a private pickup truck or whatever and he just transports goods from one place to the other, does he have to wear a uniform? Does he know does he have to sign something anything? No, but the greater the position is, the greater is expected of you, you have to wear a uniform you have to follow a certain protocol, right. And as people work in more higher positions,
then they have to dress appropriately right in a particular manner, they have to use certain words, right, they have to eat in a particular way, they have to walk in a particular way they have to drive a particular car. Correct. So the higher your level is, the more restrictions are imposed on you in a way,
right, the more you have to do. So likewise, if you want your rank to be high in general, then you have to do more as well.
Then you have to follow the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and everything in a manner that you sleep in a manner that you eat in the manner that you walk in everything. And the more you do it, the greater the higher your rank will be.
That we learned that any form of disobedience of aligners messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam invalidate a verbal claim of a man. If a person disobeys the messenger, he doesn't give any importance to his commands than his statement. I am a Muslim, I believe is it acceptable? No. Then it's questionable. into the news, I have 47 to 48 we learn way up una bella Huber soul and the hypocrites they say we believe in Allah and the messenger. Well, Aparna, and we also have a meaning to say they talk a lot. So Maya will lead for you coming home member de bellick. Then a group of them turns away after that meaning after making that claim that we believe we obey what happens to
them, they turn away, they don't actually obey. They don't actually follow the commands, the rules of us, as concerning them were more or less equal. Many these people, they're not adult believers, you can say whatever, but if your actions don't conform, then your words are not accepted. What either do it Allahu wa suli he, Leah kamaaina. One, either for you coming home, Maria Boone. And when they're called to the words of Allah and His Messenger, to judge between them at once a party of them turns aside in refusal. So what does this ayah show to us? Whose attitude is this disregard the commands of the prophets of the Lord? do not obey Him? Who does that? The hypocrites. Believers
follow and obey. And the hypocrites just say, and they do nothing, they say, but they don't obey. So it does not befit a believer that he would disregard the command of the prophets of Allah. I told you the story of of the lognormal
that how he followed the prophets on a lot of cinnamon every little way that he knew that he could, even if it came to wearing the same sandals that he wore similar, right? Why? Because the greater the man, the greater the love, and the greater the law, the more that obedience then we don't insert them this is 61 that will either de la junta ILO either under the law will either soon, or at Muna 15. So dooner and Casa Duda and when it is said to
them come to what Allah has revealed and to the messenger, you see the hypocrites turning away from you in a version. The believer does not turn away. The hypocrite turns away into the earlier one a 32 year old law of assume for interval low for inilah Hello, you're humble Catherine say obey Allah and the messenger. But if the turn away, then Indeed Allah does not like the disbelievers. Two types of people are mentioned over here who those who are to obey Allah and the messenger and secondly, those who turn away so those who are building the messenger who are the the believers and those who turn away then their Eman is not accepted. Allah says in the law layer who will carefree such people
are described as caffeine disbelievers because true Eman includes the statements as well as the actions. And if a person just says I'm a believer, I'm a believer, but he doesn't do anything, then that's not acceptable. Then we don't have the results of not obeying aligned His Messenger sallallahu wasallam, our confusion, disagreement and enmity. When people are distant from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, then what is amongst them what is between them? confusion, they're lost. They don't know what they're doing disagreement and enmity. They're fighting with one another. There's Discord. shaitaan is very active amongst those people. In other words, when people follow
the Sunnah, then they're rightly guided than ullas helpers with them, they are being led on the way to success. And when people are away from the center, then who is very active chiffon and he's leading them. This is why there will be confusion, there'll be disagreement and there will be enmity in total and file I have 46 Allah says we're all clear Allahu wa sallahu wa not an answer for tough Shalu whatever he hokum was biru in Omaha, masabi read that obey Allah and His messenger and do not dispute and thus lose courage.
Because if you obey Allah and His Messenger, then that will lead to unity. And if you disobey that will lead to what but will that lead to disputes? And if you dispute, then what will happen? You will lose courage and then your strength would depart. Allah says, Be patient, Indeed Allah is with the patient. Because sometimes you really have to suffer to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, isn't it? You're drinking the water. And you could just drink all of it in one cup. But you're like, No, no, it shouldn't have to drink in three. So what do you do? You have to do something you have to control yourself right? No, stop. Okay, take another sip. Now stop and I'll
take another sip. So somebody is required to follow the way of the profit sort of artists and then when a line is messenger have decided to matter, the believers have no other choice but to obey. When Allah and His Messenger have given an instruction, then believers don't have a choice anymore. They have to obey and disobedience of Allah and His Messenger means going astray. First of all, believers don't have a choice. If they disobey Allah and His Messenger anyway, then what is their end result going astray misguidance lost in total as AP i a 36. We learn when I can only move meaning what am I mean nothing, it is not befitting it is not allowed for believing man or a
believing woman. regardless of gender. It does not benefit a believer that either cada Allahu wa Sulu, Amman, Enya, cornella homall, here Ottoman Embrey him, that when Allah and His Messenger have decided a matter, that they should thereafter have any choice about their affair. When Allah and His Messenger have decided something, then the believers don't have a choice. what is expected of them, just obedience, and whoever it is not. When a year I say la hora Sula, who for Cordoba love Allah Allah Medina, whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger than in fact he has strayed into clear error meaning he is misguided and there is no doubt about his misguidance he is clearly in error.
So anyone who is away from the Sunnah of the prophet son of autism does not obey His ways, then he is misguided.
He is misguided. So if ever you are shown the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and contrast that is some other person's way or some other suggested way. Then what is better? What is always better? the Sunnah of the prophet Sunnah lies, but what about the other thing that people are suggesting? Okay, that people are practicing, it is backed up by some scientific evidence or some research. Then what? Still what is better? The sooner will always be better. Because when it comes to the scientific method,
Since then, do they change over time? Yes, do they get revised? Yes, they do. So, for us, the sooner is the standard, even if apparently modern science or whatever it contradicts it, then still we will follow the way of the prophets of Allah. Because that is guidance and what is other than that is what misguidance then the messengers duty was only to convey the message clearly and openly. he conveyed clearly and openly and what's our duty
to obey? inserted into a 92 Allah says what a three year law what a three or sooner for interrelating furthermore Anima Allah Selena Bella will be in that obey Allah and obey the messenger and beware. And if you turn away, then know that upon our messenger is only the responsibility for clear notification. This is basically a threat, you follow, you're guided, you're successful, and if you don't follow, then the messenger is not responsible. Then you will be questioned by the law inserted the Harmon is 12 Allah says well clear law well clear of a soul for interval Layton for in the marinara solina and whether we're moving, that obey Allah and obey the messenger, but if you
turn away, then upon our messenger is only the duty of clear notification, into the new 54 year old law of fear of a soul for into one low for in Mr. Lahey, Maha mela, where Alaykum Maha meltem, we're into the rule that they do highlight this part
of the movie, say obey Allah and obey the messenger. But if you turn away, then upon him is only that duty with which he has been charged. And what was that duty to convey and upon you is that which you have been charged and what is that, to obey? The messenger was to convey and you have to obey he conveyed. Now you have to do your part. And if you obey Him, then the Do you will be rightly guided, then you will be successful. And there is not upon the messenger except the responsibility for clear notification. So this is clearly tells us that if we obey the messenger, then we are rightly guided. And if we don't, then we are misguided, then disobedience of Allah and His messenger
will lead to a disgraceful punishment, whereas obeying them leads to Jenna inserted 17 Allah says when my nuclear illa hawara Sula, who you the hell who Jeanette whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, Allah will admit him into paradise, veggie demon tactile and how underneath which rivers flow or mania to Allah, you're a deep who are the urban element and returns with Allah will give him what kind of punishment, a painful punishment. Then we also learned that avoidance of the commands of Allah and His Messenger salatu salam, under some false pretext is liable to grievous penalty, meaning of a person, you know, he comes up with his own opinion and his own imagination and his own
theories or whatever. And as a result of that, he disobeys a messenger settled on Islam, based on logic or whatever. And this is a serious matter. Allah warns us and sort of the nude I 63. That letter I do have a soli by Nikon camera, he borrowed the convertible that do not make your calling of the messenger among yourselves as the call for one of you to another, that don't treat the call the command of the messenger like the command like the call of any other person, no, it's not the same. If somebody else calls you, you can disobey them but if the messenger called you, you cannot disobey Him. Or the urinal mala hula dia de la luna mean calmly whether Allah knows those of you who
will slip away concealed by others, failure that led to you Holly, funa and Emory and to sleep at home fitna. Oh, you sleep at home or early, this is the main part. So let those be aware, who descend from his order. Less a fitness strikes them or a painful punishment. Those people who disobey Him, then they should be warned
that a fitna might come upon you or some painful punishment might affect you, meaning the consequences of disobeying the messenger sallallahu Sallam a person can suffer in this world, even not just in the Hereafter, even in this world. Once there was a man he was eating with his left hand, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him to eat with his right hand. And he said, I can't. his arrogance prevented him from listening to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He said, No, I can't, I'm not going to. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said may you never be able to eat with the right hand and his hand was paralyzed.
Right hand was paralyzed, he could never ever lift up his right hand to his mouth ever again after that day. This is a serious matter. So we see in all of these verses that obeying the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is something that's very important allies clearly mentioned it in the Quran. In some places, there is a direct command that has been given in other places. The obedience to the messenger is paired with obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. In other places, we see that obeying the Prophet sort of autism is actually a sign of Eman. There is reward for those who follow. And there is punishment for those who do not follow. Those who follow are guided, those who don't follow are
misguided. So this is a serious matter. So in summary, the Quran What does that teach us? That following the Prophet sallallahu sallam, his ways his practices is an obligation upon us and turning away is a very serious matter. So Chronicle long won't be home. They're going to show the world they're either either under the stockbroker wanted to relay Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
