It is what gives us guidance, who abashiri meaning and those who do believe in you, give them good news be anila hoomin Allah He feiglin could be law that they will have from Allah great bounty. So the one who believes in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the one who loves him, the one who follows his footsteps, then such a person will receive great follow great bounty great favors from a loss of panel data in this life as well as the next life and this is the reason why from today inshallah we will begin the study of the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the greatest man that lived in this

00:03:01--> 00:03:58

world. Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, the study of the Prophet's life it is known as serum. Right. And Sierra, what does it mean? Literally? The word Sierra is from Salah Yes, you say sage. What do you think the root letters are? Seen? Yeah. Good. Sally acetal literally means to travel or to journey to traverse. This is the literal meaning of the word. And then the word sera doesn't just apply to traveling or journeying but it also applies to a sooner or 30 aka the way the condition of a person or a thing, the style the way of a human being or of anything, you know, for instance, in the Quran, Allah XLB RSS and you read to her sirata hell oola in the context of masala

00:03:58--> 00:04:51

Salah, that were musala salon was told a last point I asked him into the Taha it is mentioned that womac telecabine kya Musa obasa What is this in your hand? So, he replied he are a saya It is my stick, alright, and I do different things with it. And the last panel Tyler told him, I will be higher Musa Musa throw it. So when musala slam through the stick, it turned into a snake for either Hayden Desa it turned into a snake moving swiftly. So Allah subhanaw taala tomasa who would have would have taken grab it and don't fear center II do her see what the hell Ola we are going to return it to its former Syrah meaning to its former to its first condition. How it was its

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

appearance the way it was, we're going to turn it back. So you understand what's the law is literally it is to travel

00:05:00--> 00:05:51

But then it also applies to the condition, the appearance, the way the method, the form of something or someone have an insight of a human being or something else either as well. You call it a set full annum Lucy Ratan Hasina. So and so has a very good seal, meaning a very good manner, a very good style, a very good approach his overall appearance, his overall way of dealing with people is very good his nature His disposition. Alright. So, this is the meaning of the word seed, the literal meaning. Now, what does it mean when we say sila, what are we referring to the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So, the word sila applies to biography, the way a person has lived his

00:05:51--> 00:06:34

life, the way a person has journeyed through life. All right. And the word sila is basically biography. But in the Islamic context, when we use the word sila, we are talking about whose biography the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we are not just looking at the battles that he fought, because typically when we study the CRL, what is the emphasis on what is the emphasis on the battles? I mean, think about when you studied Islamic Studies at school, or when you went to maybe a Sunday school or something, and you learned about the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, you learned a little bit about his birth, and his upbringing. And when he received

00:06:34--> 00:06:44

Prophethood, and then there was a whole long period of persecution and then you skip all those 13 years and you move directly to the Medina era. And then what happens every year, there was a battle.

00:06:46--> 00:07:35

But Sierra is not just the study of the expeditions, or the battles in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam would you call that seal? Looking at the meaning of the words, you know, sila includes everything. If you look at this definition was similar to Namibia to darney much more email, what are the Lana miwako airy hieght in obese en Allahu alayhi wa sallam was the fatty and healthier while healthier. It applies to much more, all of that which has been reported to us, which has been narrated to us about the worker air will clarify what word comes to your mind when you hear this, walk our Walker and incident. Alright, so of the various all of the incidents, all of the

00:07:35--> 00:08:19

occurrences that took place in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. What is that, that is this year, beginning from his birth to when he received Prophethood. All right, it includes the battles. It includes his travels, it includes his dealings with other people. All right, it includes his marriages. It includes his victories as well as his his loss. So for instance, when he lost his children, or he lost his grandchildren, all right. So all of the incidents, all of the stories that we learn about the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam, anything that happened during his lifetime, that is part of sila, but it doesn't stop there. Because remember, Sierra is the form as

00:08:19--> 00:08:41

well, the condition of something, the appearance of something, how something is, so then we can't just look at the events, but also was the fact he also the qualities of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, which kind of qualities which kind of characteristics, Alka, well healthy,

00:08:42--> 00:09:28

his characteristics, which are both his hollow, as well as his Hulk, what is hollow, the character of a person, their manner, their mannerisms. So for instance, when we studied the seat of the Prophet said, a lot of sudden we don't just look at the events that took place in his life, but also, his his nature, how he reacted in certain situations, how he led people, how he forgave people, how he nurtured them, how he taught them, how he changed them, how he affected them. This is also part of the study of the life of the suit Ullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and not just his whole look, but also his Hulk, his physical appearance, this is also part of this era. You know, for

00:09:28--> 00:09:59

instance, if you hear about a person, that's once a person is very famous, what is one of the first things you do you Google learning? Alright? And when you Google their name, you find a Wikipedia entry or something. All right? What are you looking for a picture, a picture as well. You want to know what they look like. You want to know if they're a man or a woman? Right? You want to know about their physical appearances. That's one of the first things you want to know about a person. So when it comes to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

We also want to know, how was his physical form? How was his hair?

00:10:07--> 00:10:14

How did the Sahaba describe his face? How did they describe his his style of walking his style of dress.

00:10:15--> 00:10:55

So suffice it to say, well, healthier, and more often, Elijah was about to Sarajevo, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And along with this also, there was a worth the battles the expeditions that took place during the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this means that as we study the Sierra of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we're going to be looking at all of these different angles of the Prophet sallallahu seller's life, in Sharla. And this is what really makes it a comprehensive, an all inclusive study, you know, for instance, if you are learning about a particular human being and only their accomplishments, or their work is mentioned, and you wonder,

00:10:55--> 00:11:40

but where are they from? What is their background? All right, who are they related to? You, you want to know about all of that as well, you want to know all those details. So when you learn about all the relevant details about a person, then you have a proper understanding a complete understanding of who they are. So when it comes to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it is necessary that as we study his life, what he did, where he went, who he was about his victories, we also learn about his character, about his manner, as well as his physical appearance and his family, and so on and so forth. Now, there is a big question, which is that before we do anything, we need

00:11:40--> 00:11:44

to ask ourselves, is this important? Is this necessary?

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

So anything that we do in life, we need to ask ourselves, why am I doing this? Is it really important? Is it worth my time? Is it worth my energy? Is it worth taking a place in my mind and occupying my and taking a big portion of my mental bandwidth?

00:12:02--> 00:12:13

Because already there's so much on my plate? So Is it really necessary for me to to add this to my life to add this endeavor to my life? Is it important

00:12:14--> 00:12:18

so when it comes to the seed of the prophets have a lot of fun and let me ask you,

00:12:19--> 00:12:25

is it important to study the life of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam? Why raise your hand?

00:12:26--> 00:12:46

Okay, we in order to live our lives properly, successfully, okay. We have been told to obey Allah and His Messenger sallallahu Sallam and if we don't know who he was, how he was then how we met, how are we meant to be? Yes. Okay, in order to follow him properly.

00:12:47--> 00:12:49

Okay, good. All right. Yes.

00:12:51--> 00:13:40

Okay, he was described as the walking Quran. So in order for us to live the Quran, we need to know how he lived the Quran. Yes. So Mashallah, all the answers you gave are very good. So let's go through them, one after the other. First and foremost, remember that the Quran, the word of Allah, it was revealed upon Who? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Out of all people that existed on the earth at that time, a lot of parents chose the Arabs of all the Arabs a lot. pensado chose the parish. And from among all the people of the college, Alice Pantera chose a specific family the clan of the prophets had a lot of them and from them, he chose Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to

00:13:40--> 00:13:46

receive the Quran and to pass on the Quran. So there must be something about him.

00:13:47--> 00:14:35

There must be something too special about him that Allah subhanaw taala chose him to receive the Quran and pass it on. So Who was he? How did he live? It is necessary that we come to know of the Hamad Al Quran, the carrier of the Quran, because you see, after the Quran, the Quran is the first the primary source of guidance for us. Correct. And then after that, it is the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So we need to study the Quran. And we also need to study the sooner the way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and along with the Sunnah who sila as well how he lived. Because unless and until we study the Quran, and the prophets of the Lord is and we cannot have a

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

complete understanding of the book of Allah. We cannot understand the deen correctly. So Alhamdulillah now you have taken a step to learn the deen better right to have a better understanding of the bucola and for that you were studying the Quran. But remember that the Quran cannot be properly understood. Unless and until you also know the law

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

of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the first reason is family.

00:15:06--> 00:15:24

The reason why we study the Sierra is what? To understand the Quran these days which surah are you studying in Surah Baqarah silahkan Baca was a Maki sola or Madani? Surah madonie Sula, why is it necessary to know if it was a Maki solomani surah

00:15:25--> 00:15:26

What does it mean by that?

00:15:28--> 00:15:55

When in which period of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his life was this well revealed, why is it important to know? Yes, we cannot understand the verses. You know for instance, you read the ayah about the disbelievers in alladhina cafaro sobre la you under emlenton Delhomme la you may know what Amala Gwadar Kuru beam or summary while upsetting militia. So, you wonder why.

00:15:56--> 00:16:12

But then when you look at the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when you see 13 years of his life in Makkah, he was conveying conveying conveying in 13 years and later on as well. These people don't believe in instead they're waging war against him. And yes, they're not going to believe.

00:16:13--> 00:16:40

After those if you move on to the verses about the monastic home the hypocrites mean Who are these hypocrites? Who are they? Can you understand that? Unless you look at the life of the prophets of Allah does that mean you cannot? Right? So the Quran cannot be understood without context. And what is the context of the Quran? The life of the suit Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is why it is said that a 02 number we're leveling up

00:16:42--> 00:16:47

on the sila of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you cannot be free of it.

00:16:49--> 00:17:06

You cannot, you cannot do without it. When it comes to understanding the Quran, it doesn't just supplement. It helps you understand the Quran properly. Without the sealer. If you eliminate the seal, you can really not understand the Quran. It is impossible.

00:17:08--> 00:17:52

It is impossible. You know, for instance, you move on to sort of Allium on sort of the Nyssa. And then you mentioned in Sharla, sort of Toba? There's so many verses that talk about, you know, for instance, the Battle of the Battle of the expedition to the book, those verses you cannot understand, unless you look at the life of the Prophet sallallahu radiocentre so the first reason is what family to understand the Quran. Another reason is in obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala because in the Quran, Allah has commanded us numerous times to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Can you think of an eye where we have been told to follow the prophets Allah?

00:17:54--> 00:18:25

lt Allah, well to Russell call in contempt to have been Allah for Toby Rooney. If you love a love and follow me meaning follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam laqad Candela confy rasulillah he was watan has an there is for you and the Messenger of Allah, a beautiful an excellent example. So we have been encouraged we have been commanded to follow the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So you say okay, I want to follow him. How? How can you follow him if you don't know how he lived? How can you follow him if you don't know what he did?

00:18:26--> 00:18:46

If we don't know him, so, we study the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in order to in order to obey Allah subhanaw taala as well. Another reason is family arcada to deal with Islamia to understand the arcada the Islamic arcada

00:18:47--> 00:18:51

What is our belief as Muslims? What is it that we believe in?

00:18:53--> 00:19:32

Okay, we believe in a lost count on it in his oneness, we believe in the hereafter. All right, we believe in the messengers, you know about the six pillars of faith right. Now, we see that over time, there have been many deviations, right? There have been groups that have said, you know, for instance, the belief in the last panel has been completely distorted. All right. And these people claim to say what they're saying, in support of the dean in defense of the dean. These days also you will find many people who want to water down the dean who want to change the dean in order to make it more acceptable, all right, so that they can or so that they can follow their own desires. But

00:19:32--> 00:19:59

when you look at the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you see, what is it that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam lived to promote? What was he promoting? Right? What was the belief that he was passing on to the people that he made sure people would understand and accept and live by here recently, somebody came up to me and they were saying that in their family, the particular sect or the particular group that they're from, they say that the prophets Allah

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

And, and our little dilemma and certain beliefs about them which basically take them to the level of a loss of control and even greater, even higher.

00:20:08--> 00:20:52

And I said that but this completely contradicts what the prophet sallallahu Sallam brought the prophets on a lot of them came to teach people that Allah is one worship Allah alone. That is what he struggled for. Right? So, if you say that no, it's not necessary to believe that Allah is one and unique in his attributes, and what are you doing, you're completely negating everything that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam brought. So remember, in order to preserve our Akita, in order to properly understand our aqeedah, it is also important that we study the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, because if you eliminate the study of his life, then you can interpret any ayah anyway,

00:20:53--> 00:20:56

right? You can interpret anything anyway.

00:20:57--> 00:21:34

So it preserves our Deen also, for the preservation of our religion, we study the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Another major reason is to perfect our Iman for the perfection of our faith. Because in a Hadees, we learned the prophets have a lot of them said la you mean a hadoken? had akuna Hubba Alayhi Manuela de la de when nasty, edgy marine. This is a hadith in Sahih. Muslim, that none of you is a believer until I am dear to him that his child, his father, and the whole of mankind, those of you who are mothers, think about your children.

00:21:35--> 00:22:01

And think about your parents. Do you love your children? Of course, do you love your parents, of course, the mention of your parents I mean, brings tears to your eyes, right? moves your heart, all those fond memories that come to your mind? And why because you love them. Somebody dare say a word against your parents or against your children, somebody criticized your children, even if they're wrong.

00:22:02--> 00:22:49

What happens? We become very upset. Why? Because we love our children. We love our parents. But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that he should be more beloved to us than our own family. How can we love him? If we don't know him? How? How can we love him? If we don't know about the struggles that he went through? You know, for instance, many girls, yeah, they like their parents, they like their mother, they appreciate everything that their mothers have done. But when they go through, you know, motherhood, when they go through pregnancy, and childbirth, then what happens? Mom, I love you. I love you. Right, it's as if you didn't love your mother before. And now you begin to love her

00:22:49--> 00:23:37

because now you know what it means to be a mother. Right? So when you get to know about the struggles of your parents, that increases you, in your love for them. Likewise, when we study the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and we see his struggles, we see his efforts. We see his patience, then naturally that will increase us in our love for him. And the thing is, you can't love somebody unless you know them. It's not possible. You can't love them. Loving the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is a part of our Eman And in order to perfect our Amen. We're going to study his life so that we can love him even more. Also, another reason is that when we study the seal of the prophets of

00:23:38--> 00:23:57

Salaam, then the Sierra is a guidance. For us. It brings us hope. The Prophet sallallahu sallam, you could very easily say that he lived a very, very difficult life. He had many enemies. He lived through poverty, he lives through hunger. Right? He had

00:23:58--> 00:24:39

a big responsibility that he could not abandon. Right? He had a big family also. Right. And obviously when you have a big family, a large family have lots of family issues also. Right? So we see that at every level, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he faced a lot of challenges. And when you're going through challenges in your life, and when you think about the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gives you hope. If he could do it, inshallah, I can also do it if Allah tested him, right, then unlock and also test me. And then when you look at the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how did he deal with that particular situation with that particular test with

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

that challenge? And that is a source of guidance for you. Because life is not free of problems, or is it? Each person is being tested in a different way, isn't it? Each person so for instance, one person, they're being tested through their children through their loved ones, their close ones who

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

are leaving the dean, who are not interested in the dean who have abandoned the Salah. For example, the prophets of Allah Islam, did he have close relatives who weren't even Muslim? Yes, he had.

00:25:12--> 00:25:15

How did he deal with that situation? What did he do?

00:25:16--> 00:25:21

Likewise, you know, there is another person who is going through the loss of a loved one.

00:25:22--> 00:26:06

spouse, child, friend, parent. And when you look at the Prophet sallallahu sallam, did he lose a child? Yes, he did. Did he lose his wife? Yes, he did. So when you when you study the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it really brings you hope, brings you positive energy. It guides you through your most difficult situations. The prophets of Allah said and brought about the greatest revolution, he changed the lives of people. How did you do it? You have a goal, you want to do something? You look at the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how did he do it? into the tooth? I want 20 loss Pantone it says wakulla Nepal soiree come in embedded Russell, man was happy to be

00:26:06--> 00:26:52

here for adeq. We relate to you the stories of the prophets, and through them, we strengthen your heart. So in the Quran, Allah has told us about many stories of the prophets, which are a means of strengthening our heart. So when we look at the story of the prophets on the wall, when he was on his life, that is also a source of strengthening our hearts, it brings us hope. Then we also see that the study of the Syrah strengthens our faith. It brings us here team, it brings us conviction that yes, this bean is healthy, because the prophets are allowed to sell them. It's amazing how within 23 years, within 23 years, within two decades, he completely revolutionized Arabia, and not

00:26:52--> 00:27:32

just Arabia, all of mankind. It's amazing. And it's not just Muslims who acknowledge this, but many non Muslims also historians that acknowledged this, you'll find so many people writing in favor of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam praising his efforts praising the revolution, literally that he brought, that how Arabs were before Islam. All right, and how they became after the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to them. The people who were busy killing each other, literally killing each other brother fighting brother, one tribe fighting another tribe, warring constantly. But what happened when the prophet SAW that a lot of time came, these men turned into brothers,

00:27:33--> 00:28:14

people who were busy killing one another, now they became, you know, people with concern and care for humanity. So, when you see that the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how he brought about this change in how Islam was established, you see the persecution of the Prophet salallahu Sunnah went through in the early years. But despite that the deen was established, you see that his enemies turned into his best friends, people who wanted to kill him turned into those who wanted to defend him. So when you study the life of the prophets on a lot of them, you really realize that yes, this religion is how is definitely true, there's no doubt about it. Because if it was not healthy, it would not have

00:28:14--> 00:28:17

survived, it would not have been established.

00:28:18--> 00:28:33

So it's a means of strengthening our faith. And this is why, you know, scholars, for example, if it hasn't, he says the biolife the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not have any miracle, except the miracle of his companions. All right, then that would have been sufficient.

00:28:34--> 00:28:45

Meaning, the way the companions were transformed, the way they were changed. That in itself is an evidence to the truthfulness of the prophets on

00:28:46--> 00:28:59

how the Arabs changed. I mean, that shows that he has the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was definitely how. So it's a means of strengthening our faith. Then another benefit of studying the sila is that we learn the practical side of our Deen.

00:29:00--> 00:29:12

All right, so for example, in the Quran, you learn about various Arkham you know, what you're supposed to do, how you're supposed to do it. So for instance, in the Quran, one of the first things that you learned was woman models are

00:29:14--> 00:29:20

out of what we have given them they spend. So when you study the life of the prophet SAW the laws and you see how he spent in the way of

00:29:22--> 00:29:39

right, when you study his life, you also study the lives of the companions, right? That How did they spend in the way of a loss. So for example, my mother's economy and feel cold, it means two things. One is some of that which we have given them, they spend,

00:29:40--> 00:29:50

not all of it, but some of it. And it can also be understood as one mementos economy and feel alone and that which we have given them they spend.

00:29:51--> 00:30:00

Now we see both of these in the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So for instance, during his life was the expedition to the book. All right, a very

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

Difficult expedition. So what happened? Abu Bakar alone and who came and he brought everything he had

00:30:08--> 00:30:12

Romo de la Mora who came and he brought half of what he had.

00:30:14--> 00:30:17

So you understand what it means to spend in the way of Allah.

00:30:18--> 00:30:22

All right, you learn about iqama to Salah.

00:30:23--> 00:30:34

alladhina up Mona Salah. So how is it that we're supposed to establish the prayer when you look at the life of the prophets on a lot of time, you see, when he did digital, one of the first things he did was he built the masjid.

00:30:35--> 00:31:11

He built the masjid. Then what then was appointed, the ban was given, the people came together to pray, and those who did not come to pray, what the Prophet told a lot of them said with regards to them, right? So you learn what it means to establish the prayer when you study the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and then, you know, it's like the practical side, you study the law, the theory, but then how are you meant to implement it? in the Koran we're told the patient, how, when you study the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you see times when he was extremely patient. All right, so you learn the practical aspect of the deen.

00:31:12--> 00:31:19

And then one of the benefits is also loving the Sahaba. Throw the love

00:31:20--> 00:31:23

the Sahaba Who were they? The best generation?

00:31:24--> 00:31:40

They were the best generation Allah. Allah says about them, what are they alone, and who will do and Allah is pleased with them, Allah is happy with them. So when you study the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you realize the value of a worker of the Lord who you appreciate him.

00:31:41--> 00:31:53

You also appreciate or model Viola horn who you appreciate Earth man or the Allahu anhu. You appreciate valandraud the Allahu anhu. Right? So all of these companions, you learn about them.

00:31:54--> 00:32:02

And you learn why Allah was pleased with them. How did they support the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? How did they obey Him? How did they show their love?

00:32:05--> 00:32:36

All right. So these are some of the benefits of studying the Syrah. Another is that we can also defend the profits of loss and a better I mean, there always been times when people have, you know, insulted the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they have, you know, sad things or written things or shown things which, which, you know, insult the Prophet sallallahu sallam, or they criticize something about him a decision that he made, you know, for instance, one particular Jewish tribe, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he decided that the men amongst them be killed.

00:32:37--> 00:33:08

And this is something that is hailed over and over again, in criticism of the prophets of Allah Islam. Or, for example, he married such a young girl, or a shadow on her or he made so many wives. Now, when these things are said, We're like, guess, we don't know what to say, right? We don't know how to defend the prophets, a lot of them. When you study the Sierra, you know why he married so many wives? You know why he married I shall be low. You know why he decided that the men amongst the Jewish tribe be killed?

00:33:09--> 00:33:11

Then you can defend him?

00:33:12--> 00:33:14

Because how can you defend someone you don't know?

00:33:15--> 00:33:16

You can't.

00:33:17--> 00:33:53

So in order to defend the prophets or the light, it's also remember that we studied the Sierra in order to carry on this tradition, because this was the way of the Sahaba. This, however, would teach their children about the life of the prophets of light Islam, and the Sahaba after them the Tabby rune and the Tabata of your own. So for example, early even present the great grandson of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said that we would teach our children mallozzi just like we would teach them the Quran. mahasi refers to the expedition's the battles in the life of the Prophet sallallahu. So how do they teach the mahasi to their children? Just like the Quran.

00:33:54--> 00:34:15

Right? So this has been the tradition of the people who love this theme. So we also want to be part of that tradition. We also love this theme. And we want to keep this tradition alive. How? By studying the zero and by teaching the zero. Now, when we study the zero, when we study anything, we need to know where we taking our information from.

00:34:17--> 00:34:23

So when we study the seal of the prophets are a lot of fun. Where do we get the seal from? How do we learn about the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam?

00:34:24--> 00:34:30

You know, for instance, you learn you read a biography of a famous personality, and then you wonder, where did they get all this information from?

00:34:32--> 00:34:51

So you find out at the end of the book, how this person got all that information through an interview, right? Or by spending time with them, or by asking so many people their research of 20 years of 10 years or five years, right? So when we're studying the CETA, where are we getting the information from first and foremost from the Quran?

00:34:53--> 00:35:00

Are there any references to the Prophet's life in the Quran, he has many references. Look at the 30 pages. There.

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

the mention of us have will feel the army of avulla right? So that refers to what happened before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his birth, right, then after the birth of the Prophet sallallahu, and we see that, at one occasion gibreel came and he cut open his chest, took his heart out and cleaned it washed it.

00:35:22--> 00:35:28

Is that mentioned in the Quran? And I'm not sure, like I saw the rock, right. And then,

00:35:29--> 00:35:36

but there are heard so many battles, hedger is mentioned the persecution that he faced that is mentioned over and over again. So we take the seat off from the Quran,

00:35:38--> 00:35:40

and not just the code and also from the books of deceit.

00:35:41--> 00:35:44

Because in order to understand the Quran, you need to know the seal.

00:35:45--> 00:35:53

Right. So as people thought, the explanation of the Quran they also taught the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and that is recorded in the books of the seed.

00:35:54--> 00:35:57

Then after that, we also look at the Hadeeth collections,

00:35:58--> 00:36:07

because the Hadith is what the the words which transfer an incident in the Prophet's life.

00:36:08--> 00:36:14

So when you look at the Hadith, you learn about the various incidents that occurred in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.

00:36:15--> 00:36:26

So you look at the Hadith collections. So for instance, Bukhari Muslim, even manager, so on and so forth at tirmidhi, because every single Hadith is a snapshot of the Seal of the Prophets life.

00:36:27--> 00:36:52

Then after that, we also look at the classical work since you know many books which have been written about sila. And there are many classical books also. So books that were written at a very, very early period, soon after the death of the Prophet settled on Islam, and inshallah, we'll go into that. And there are also biographies of the Sahaba, which have been written and from them, we also learn about the sila of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:36:53--> 00:37:20

And there's also many books of history that we look at. Now, there are many works on Ceylon, some of the major works, we see that one of the very early books written on the sila was the COO of Eben is how have you heard about this? Even is how you'll hear this a lot in the seat? A lot. Alright, so sila even is how even is half the great historian. He died in the year 151. After digital.

00:37:21--> 00:37:43

Alright, just imagine 150 years after hyjal this man dies. And he has already written a book on the life of the prophets of the Lord. All right, this is one of the earliest books that we have. Then we see that in the year 218, after Hitler, even his Sham died. All right. And he wrote the famous book, Sierra, divination.

00:37:44--> 00:38:19

All right. Now, even as Hawk was born in Medina, he lived in Medina, he met many children, others Harbor, some have said that he must have even met or seen the Sahaba. And he lived in Medina. So you can imagine how much exposure he must have had to the life of the prophets of Allah is Allah. So he recorded everything that he had heard. And this is a reason why, even as hawks work is 10 to 12 volumes. It's massive. It's huge. All right. And even his Sham, what he did was that he basically summarized, sila, even his help.

00:38:20--> 00:38:50

He didn't summarize it, you can say that he, he deleted many portions of it, because even is how he wrote from the beginning of time. So for example, Adam, really Sam no Harris, and all the way to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And then the Prophet sallallahu ends life in great detail. So even his Sham, he deleted everything that was not that relevant, and he focused only on the life of the prophets of Allah is that and then we see that in the year 310. After he dropped, there was a book on the Sierra written by injuried, Atari. Have you heard of this name? of poverty?

00:38:51--> 00:38:59

poverty, perhaps you've read it? If you haven't, you should become familiar with these names. Then we see that in the year four and 56 after he even has them. Have you heard of the name even hasn't?

00:39:00--> 00:39:44

He also wrote something on 597 after his EULA, ignore Josie. He wrote something on the sequel 751 after he wrote, it will claim Josie even look at him. Have you heard of his name? He wrote something on this euro 852 even hydro LRS Kalani he wrote on the serum. So the point that I'm making over here is that in every century, you see, there was some major work on the seal of the prophets on a lot of them. So the point is that Sierra, when we learn about the life of the prophet SAW the laws and it's not like people made up stories. No, these incidents were narrated. They were related generation to generation, just like Hadith is passed on and the Syrah is taken from the Hadith there are strict

00:39:44--> 00:40:00

criteria. All right. And then there are many famous books on sila. One is so he a skeleton of a Ouija by Giovanni and other is a tome by Roberto puri. And what we're going to be looking

00:40:00--> 00:40:50

At is when the moon split, who's the author? Nobody. Right, same author as a very good McTell. It's a very short book as you can see, and inshallah, we will be reading through this book and wherever if necessary inshallah I will some more detail to it because even it's how his collection was 10 to 12 volumes. All right. So we also want to go into a little bit depth, but our focus is not just going to be looking at the story of the Prophet's life but also extracting lessons from it. inshallah, so, are you ready for this? inshallah. So, tomorrow, make sure you bring your book, so that you can get to know better about the life of the greatest man that lived on this earth.

00:40:52--> 00:41:00

It's practical long will be handy condition. La ilaha illa Anta Mustapha Roca want to relate Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
