When we go through the Sira of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his beloved companions, may Allah be pleased with them all. We find numerous instances of
matters, we can talk about numerous things, numerous beautiful occurrences, numerous, numerous beautiful incidences that we can just spend a whole day talking about. However, when I was going through sera rasulillah, seldom, there was one particular incident that struck me so much. There was one particular incident that even now whenever I listen to it, whenever I think about it, whenever I lecture about it, I am just filled with all I can't believe this incident. What happened, my brothers and sisters was in the Battle of butter in the Battle of butter, when the Muslims may Allah have mercy upon them all, when the Muslims won the war. And they took the prisoners of war, and they
had 70 prisoners of war at that time. When they took the prisoners of war. There was of course, monks, the companions, Musab Norman, and we know who said no, it's not me it was he was one of the richest young lads from the, from the young people of kurush. So he had accepted Islam, and he and his mother and father had thrown thrown him out of the house. This is Mr. Mohammed, who were who was one of the people who actually fought the battle of butter. And on the other side, on the side that the Muslim Kane was was seventh norm, his brother was the brother of Musa Norman, who was still a mushrik was still a disbeliever in Allah and His messengers of Allah Addison. So Muslim, his
brother, this brother of this righteous companion was caught and he was amongst the prisoners of war.
And was one of the companions was tying up the brother of muscle man and tying his hands together, must pass by, he just happened to pass by.
He happened to pass by his panel and he sees his brother in shackles. He sees his brother in the worst of conditions, a prisoner of war.
If Allah wants he can chop his head off.
Once he can do whatever he wants with him, he is a prisoner of war in the worst of situations. Imagine your own brother in front of you. From the prisoners of war, what would you do? In fact, what wouldn't you do to save him?
But look at what Musab May Allah give him the highest of Paradise said. He said, Oh, my brother, telling this this other companion this uncertain was tying his hands or my brother tie his hands.
He says tie his hands.
Make sure you tie the rope hard
because it's my
his mother was rich and will pay a lot of money to free him.
Who is he talking about?
Who is he talking about brothers. He's talking about his own brother.
He's talking about his own brother ties hands.
Take him and then tie him up.
His mother is rich. She will pay a lot of money for him. And so Muslim, his brother, the Muslim, the disbeliever, and Allah subhanaw taala said, Oh my brother, you are my brother in Islam and you're saying this?
You have all people, of all people, you my own brother, my own blood brother is saying this about me.
And then moussaka, may Allah have mercy upon him said something, which I will never forget until the day I done insha Allah tala.
He said something we should be burned in your hearts.
Something that you should remember every day in the morning when you wake up.
He said, Oh,
shut up. He told his brother Shut up.
Verily, here's my brother do knuckle Yo, rather than you today. He is my brother. This Muslim man who I don't even know who I never knew, except two years ago when I met.
This man is my mother is my brother today rather than you.
This is the whole of Islam.
This is the Brotherhood of Islam that we're talking about. Something that transcends all boundaries, all boundaries of nationality, or boundaries of race, all boundaries of culture, all boundaries of prejudice and racism. We are brothers before anything else. We are what we do. We are brothers of the same religion. Our mothers are different, but our religion is one. We are brothers in this religion. Look at the answer of Muslim men. Think about it. Shut up, my brother Shut up. This man is my brother rather than you today.
It is because of this great brotherhood that the companions had ministered to brothers and sisters, it is because of this great brotherhood that the companions had. due to which they were able to move mountains.
These disheveled Arabs in the desert with sores that couldn't even cut up the meat from the camel. They were going out with the sauce to fight a nation. Fight the kings of the world Subhanallah until they made the Kings kneel at their very feet, by what I asked you by what it was, indeed Islam that joined them together in this bond of brotherhood. So they move mountains, and they split apart seeds and they conquered nations. And they made kings kneel at their feet because of their unity.
It is something we all understand. When I put three pins together it's difficult to break but when I take one it's very easy to break. Unity makes a strong brotherhood makes us strong. This is what made
these companions also the loss of a senator into a fighting force into a force to be reckoned with. As Allah Subhana Allah says,
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a messenger of Allah
and those with him who is with them who is with Rasul Allah, the companions also known as
harsh against those who disbelieve in harm them. Ruhama
merciful, merciful, unkind amongst themselves, merciful, unkind pilot, this is something we have forgotten many of us have forgotten, who have been merciful, unkind amongst themselves. This is the SEMA This is the sign of those people who are with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And Allah subhanaw taala also tells us
about the companions, the great brotherhood, Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, let me read the bow what would a man I mean copy him and as for those people, those people who lived in the DA which is which is Medina, those people who took their residence in that in Medina and Eman and they believed in Islam and Allah subhanaw taala before the meaning before the Mahajan, you
Head born a man hajra la, they love those who have done history to them. They love them who has read those people who have left their homes in order to be with them to be with the answer. What What is he doing a few unforeseen hazards?
And they do not find any difficulty and difficulty in the fact that they may have been given that which the answer have not been given meaning or service wrestler might prefer the more huddling sometimes above dancer, as we know Allah. prefer the Mahajan for dancer in every verse is always a Mahajan, dancer in every verse that talks about the companions Mahajan, and then the answer.
And we know for example, Islam said that the philosopher is from them hygiene, the healer, the healer from the French, which is from the Maha God. So we know therefore Islam, the preferred Mahajan. However, however, they don't find a difficulty in accepting this, no jealousy in their hearts. They have complete love for the people who has come from a distant land.
While you see Runa and fusi, Makana been hostile kasasa. And they prefer them over themselves, even though they may have great difficulty.
SubhanAllah great difficulty. They themselves don't have enough food, they themselves don't have enough wives, they themselves don't have enough to live, yet they prefer their brothers over themselves. While you see Runa Allah and fusi him What are kasasa and they prefer their brothers over themselves, even though they may be in great difficulty, or my huge passion, NFC for hula ecoflo and indeed the one who is able to stay away from the desires of his soul than indeed he is a successful one. He is a successful one.
My brothers and sisters in Islam.
Let me give you some glimpses of the sweetness of brotherhood.
This thing which Allah Subhana Allah has given us is something so sweet. Is something so sweet.
That will sort of last a long while he was a limit set in Hazzard howdy in Muslim innominate. He said Alfa Eman the most greatest or the most definite sign of Eman.
The most definite sign of Eman is Amala to the last
is brotherhood and cooperation and loving one another for the sake of Allah. This is the greatest sign of a man
and also hating for the sake of Allah meaning hating those people who disobey Allah Subhana Allah
This is the greatest sign of Eman. It is the greatest sign of Allah Subhana Allah has mercy upon the community as a whole that lust Allah has bestowed brotherhood and love and companionship amongst them. Allah subhanaw taala says earlier you are loving
or you will believe fear Allah as we should be feared molotow moto 911 to Muslim own and do not die die except as believers who are tassimo be heavily Larijani
and hold on to the rope of Allah the Quran and to Islam. Hold on to it. Don't let go one or two don't become divided, was Khurana amatola. And remember the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala is
when you enemies, enemies, Bangladesh and Pakistan enemies 1971 Why have we forgotten it? We were enemies for alpha beta kumiko then Allah join your hearts together. Allah join your hearts together for alpha beta
for a spa, Tom binimetinib. So you became due to his great mercy brothers in faith. Welcome to mala shafa frati manana and you were on the edge of the fire about to fall into it on the edge of the fire about to fall into it. One called akumina and Allah subhanaw taala saved you from it.
And he imagined this, Allah Subhana Allah is telling us in this verse, that our unity and our Brotherhood is from the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah
and our disunity therefore, and a disunity and hatred amongst ourselves is from the anger of Allah subhanaw taala it is when Allah subhanaw taala is not happy with us, then he makes us disunited. It is when Allah Subhana Allah
happy with us that he makes us united.
So Fianna 30, may Allah have mercy upon him was once asked, What is the essence of life? What is the essence of life? What is the man? As you say, the man or the the true essence, the water that is so essential to the light? What is the water to life? What is it? What is it? And societa 30? may Allah have mercy upon him, said the only one is to meet with your brothers,
the sweetness and the essence of our life, our brothers, upon which our community is based upon our whole society, our Islam is based upon is our brotherhood, is us meeting each other? Is us being together? This is the true essence of our brotherhood. Look at the first advisor sort of last Lama who and he was seldom when he came to Medina, do you know the first advice? You know, when President Bush was elected? Everyone wanted to hear what's what's the first thing he's going to say? Right? Because the first address of the president is so important. This is not the President, we're talking about my brothers, we're talking about the Rahmatullahi the mercy to our mankind, the messenger has
been sent until the day of judgment. So the first address that you would give to his new new society to Medina is so Pinnacle is so important that people will listen what is he going to say? What is this man going to say? And he said in authentic hadith in Sahih Academy in cinematic media, he said, Yeah, you harness all mankind. Yeah, you harness all mankind. Arthur Mo.
Susannah, masa, Masanobu, Laila wellness Rania,
Janata besana a very, very beautiful,
very beautiful lady who
said, I look at this this is this is the messenger to mankind. And look at the advice he gives. Look at the advice he gives try and understand what advice is given he's saying all mankind
feed people food. What should salah and spread the Sunnah was a noble lady will now Sonia and pray in the depths of the light was people are asleep. The whole janitor be Salah, and you will indeed after doing all of this, you will enter gender in great peace and harmony. What a beautiful. What a beautiful Friday. What a beautiful Friday. The first two parts of the Hadith are talking about brotherhood. The first two parts my brothers are talking about brotherhood. How is talking about brotherhood. Also, the loss of a loved one is lm said,
feed people food will actually set up and spread the salon.
Don't you see what sources have said that at another time explaining this? Had he? He said another Hadith? He said
to me No, you will not enter Jannah and believe
me no ha, ha. And you will not believe until you love one another. And then he said Shall I not tell you? Shall I not tell you of that which will cause you to love one another. So the companion said indeed also, tell us tell us what is it that will cause one of us to love each other. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a few Salah, spread the Salah.
And indeed this hadith is telling us something. It's telling us my brothers, that the outer actions have a direct impact on our inner inner heart, the outer actions, the way we act with others, the way we are with our brothers has a direct impact on our hearts. So if we do the acts, the outer actions to bring our hearts together, the indeed our hearts will come together. Have you not seen what some sources say? He said
in the press he said Don't be you know, line up, straighten your rows and don't separate and you know one of them in front of the other one behind Don't be like that. Don't be like that. Why? Because if you're like that for
your hearts will differ, meaning the outer actions have a direct impact on the inner heart of the interactions. It is for this reason what also said feed people food, feed people food.
feed people food has spread the synapse. It is then that your heart will actually grow fonder and you will have strong brotherhood
It is for this
It is for this reason
that we'll have some adversity Allah have mercy upon, has a very beautiful thing.
He said, our brothers are more beloved to us than our own families. He said what my brothers? He said, my brothers in Islam, I love them more than my own family. Very strange saying, isn't it? Why all happened? Why? Why? Why do you love your brothers more than your own family? Why? Then he said, because our brothers remind us of the asherah whereas our families remind us of the Tunis. When you go home, you get the onions. Did you get the milk? Do you get the eggs? Oh my god, all the acuras can you talk to me when you're with your brothers Subhanallah all we do and talk about is
about the day that Allah subhanaw taala tells us
the blood brothers Yama, even
as unless Padilla tells us
that the blood brothers on that day one to the other will be enemies.
enemies in law moutoku except for the believers, except for the believers we will be friends inshallah, we will be friends. On that day when people are running about naked. On the day when people are running about naked
and they're sweating so much that some of them are being drowned in it. On that day we will be friends inshallah.
And the people who are friends in this life, the enemies of Islam, they are friends in this life, they will be enemies of one another in that life. I asked you Billa asked you by Allah, if we can be if you can be friends on that day. If we can be friends on the most difficult day in our life, when our own father and mother would run away from us because we want one day from them. If on that day, we can be friends. Why not? So in this life? Why can't we be friends in this life? When the matter is not so difficult? When the matter is so easy? If we can be friends on that day, why can't we be friends today? We must be friends today. We must be friends today.
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When he came to Medina,
he started something which has never been seen in history ever before.
The Statesman, the best of statesman rasulillah Sullivan was best in everything he did. The best example in everything he did. He started something which has never been seen before in the history of mankind. He joined two brothers together not to read as many a Brother Blood Brothers blood brother, no, meaning a brother in Islam, another brother in Islam. He joined between them too, by making their brotherhood stronger than the normal brotherhood Islam. What did he do? He made brothers between one answer one person from the answer and one person from the mujahadeen. So, for example, he made friends between sad and narrabeen, who was one of the answer, and Abdullah was from
one of the mahadji D. So he made brotherhood monks them what do I mean by this brotherhood?
brotherhood amongst them such that when sad, admit a bit who was one of the answer and had money would die, then instead of his own family, inheriting from sad, rather than rather than that, rather than the family inheriting of the family, output inherit from him,
of the man in the alpha inherit from 100, meaning that the solar system had made them brothers and make the tie stronger than the strength of the bonds of family.
It is truly something that has not been seen before. And it is because of this that we find numerous instances in the era of ostracism, and the history of the companions of the great examples of their brotherhood.
So when I came to Medina, sad neurobion, this righteous companion came to him and said, Oh my brother, I am a rich man. He said an authentic hadith in Bukhari, oh my brother, I am a rich man, look at me I am rich. I am from the rich people have the answer.
Here you go. half my wealth take
half a wealth is for you. And here I have two wives. Look at which of them you like.
Look at which of them
You like obviously this was at that time in which the I of the job had not been revealed yet. So he said, look at which of them you like, and then I will divorce her, and then you can marry her.
He was willing to give half as well. We don't even want to give a father and mother half an hour for the ask for it.
He was willing to give his brother who he doesn't even know who has never even met before, who they were enemies with. And now they are friends.
He is willing to give half as well and also half of his women.
It is a tremendous sign of the Brotherhood that he felt in his heart. In fact, this bond the Brotherhood was so strong amongst the companions, was so strong amongst companions, that when the Mahajan came, the answer saw how cool they were. And the answer I used to have lands on which they used to cultivate date palm trees. So they all gathered together and came to them and said, Yeah, rasulillah we don't feel good. We don't feel good about our brothers, being without anything. Also the law. Look at us, we have lands where they palm trees, we have so much wealth, divide our wealth in half and give it to a convenience, give it to our friends. Give it to our brothers instead. All
of them got together.
In no one, none of them stayed back. Every everyone was together in this love for brotherhood.
Now you think about it. You think about this brotherhood. And you think about our situation today.
And how when a Muslim is in trouble, we love engineers.
We love engineer them. Yesterday, I saw a brother who had a tire puncture,
who had a tire puncture,
and not just one type on to two type punches. He was going across the road, and there's something on the road. And both of his tires from the four tires, two of his tires are punctured. Obviously, he only has one. No one prepares for two type punches. So he pulled into the central mosque. And I had just finished giving the talk and I was just coming out. So he pulled in
the brothers all gathered around his car
to get around his car.
And they started joking.
They were joking.
Some of them said, Oh my brother I don't know which is worse your car or your state. Because he was very unhappy. So they were saying they were joking saying I don't know what you know, which looks worse, the state of your car or your the state of yourself. Joking Subhanallah at a time in which our brothers I am so much difficulty when this person had just been shocked. Perhaps this cosmic destroyer, perhaps is having some difficulty instead of offering our car instead of even just giving him a lift.
Rather we walk at him and God and make fun of you love Hola Hola.
How do we want unless how to change the situation when we cannot change our situation ourselves.
In the law, you know when
the unforeseen burns in your heart? No this Allah will not change your conditions, until you change your own conditions until you change your own state.
We have an example of the companions a direct opposite of what I just went through related to you. What I just really related to you was one of the worst examples of brotherhood.
One of the worst examples I've seen. However, in the examples of the companions, we have an example of the best of brotherhood
in the Hadees, which is in Bukhari, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was once with the companions, and he said,
Yep, La La ku. Madhavi afinia. They will come upon you a man from this gap in the mountain. Rajahmundry. Jalil Jenna, a man from the people from the men of Paradise, the people looked who is the standard come up. Hello, who is it gonna be?
As a normal person came out just like any Tom, Dick and Harry, a normal companion from the competitors and all sorts of stuff came out. So the competitors became very amazed
What's happening Why do some say that this man is from the people agenda. What is so special. The second day came another day.
From said the same thing again. Verily from
This mountain pass will come a man from the people of gentlemen. And the same man man came again a third day and said the same thing. And the same man came.
Amazing, isn't it? The same man caves one of the companions wanted to find out? What was the situation with this person? What was so special that made him the people of gentlemen? What was what was so special about him? And so he went with him
to stay with him in his house and see, what was it that he used to do? Did you use to pray extra? Did you use too fast extra duties to be better to his wife, the normal other companions that needs to read the Quran more, he must be reading the whole Quran in one solo or something like that, for him to be for the people agenda, isn't it? Because the rest of the companions will only only reading, reading the Quran in two solos, for example, he must be better than them in a data. But he did not find anything special that would make him special from rest of the companions. He didn't find anything to say that he was better than any other Tom, Dick and Harry. So he asked him all my
brother, I heard a pseudo last love while he was alive say this and this about you that you are the people of gender? Why? What is it that you do that makes you from the people of gentlemen? And so this man, he thought for a while? And then he said, Well, why? Well, I you know what, I don't know anything that makes me better or or worthy of such a reward. Except that I go to bed. And I find nothing in my heart against any Muslim.
I go to bed, and I find nothing in my heart against any Muslim.
In fact, this is the reason why brothers This is the only reason for which Rasulullah saw Selim had said that he was from the people of gentlemen, wasn't because of his extra pay. He didn't have extra prayers. He didn't have extra fasts. He only didn't have any hard feelings in his heart against any Muslim brother.
Imagine if we were like that.
If we, the Muslims in England, and the world were like that, went to bed with nothing in our hearts against anyone with any Muslim. Nothing in our hearts against any brother. Just because he's a brother, I forgive him. Just because other other people say what you want, I forgiven you, I don't care. I don't care about that you can keep on continue on saying what you want, I have forgiven you, just for the sake of Allah. That indeed this is something for which Allah Subhana Allah will mention us with those with him. And unless mother will tell the people agenda also on so I love someone so very loving let them to Have you not heard the story of chef or chef bin bass? Chef Abdullah,
embarrass him Allah.
He was once asked this question, or share why do people love you so much? It was true. His enemies used to love him.
His friends used to live in his families is to love him. Everybody loved him. Everybody loved him.
Even the pope loved him.
I remember a letter from the Pope's Pope to share with us in one of the most nicest ways Mashallah the pope loved him. Everybody loved him. So, so he was asked, Why do people love you so much?
And he thought, and he said, Well lucky it is because I go to bed. And I do not find anything in my heart against anybody. People can curse and say the government scholar says this says that he is a mortuary. He's this and that. And all these these words and accusations and all these statements and curses that people lay and lay on him night and day, yet he just forgive them all, without having anything in his heart about them at all. At least for this reason why people used to love them so much. So proud of
my brothers and sisters in Islam.
Allah subhanaw taala wants us to be brothers.
Allah Subhana Allah wants us to be brothers. And he reminds us again and again in the end that we are brothers and nothing can break. This brotherhood. Nothing can break. Even if we kill each other, my brothers, even if we kill each other, we fight each other. We are still brothers in Islam. See what Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran in surah Majora
What does he say? He says what? If a 30 minute mini Nakata do and if two groups from the believers fight each other
for asleep obey Nomad and join them together, join between them.
Huck's there after Allah subhanaw taala reminds us why he has told us to join. Why he has ordered the people to join between the hearts of two people who are fighting to Muslim brothers who are fighting. And he said,
jail, the believers are bad brothers. Very believer. Believers are nothing but brothers. Nothing but brothers.
For us little by Nahuatl, so join between your brothers. Now, take a minute to ponder about this verse. Take a minute to ponder about this worse, isn't it two people fighting each other? Two people are fighting each other right? Two brothers with two swords, and they're hitting each other and they're trying to kill each other. We already know those who have lost the love of animals, Adam said that the person
the killer and the person who was killed above the hellfire. We know that meaning that both the Muslim is not allowed to find that the Muslim and when they do so they are in the danger of being punished by Allah subhanaw taala isn't that so? Yet Allah subhanaw taala reminds us again and again.
That at the end of the day, at the end of the day, at the end of the day, we are still brothers in Islam.
Even though we may hate each other's necks, even though we may try and kill each other. We are still brothers in Islam. Even though we were backed by our brothers, we are still brothers Islam. See what Allah says in the Quran? Are you Hey, boo, boo, Maja Kula
there's any one of you want to eat the flesh of his dead brother. You have just been beaten him and unless calling you his brother
unless calling you his brother, your brother, he's using the term brother.
For a person who You've insulted. And you've you've mentioned with the worst of of, of characteristics, the worst of names, you've caught in the worst of things. And yet he's your brother.
See how Allah subhanaw taala also tells us
about someone about about manslaughter unless other law says yeah, you're letting me know you believe.
Verily manslaughter or capital punishment has been written for someone who kills without your right and horrible for free will.
The free man with the free man, the woman with the woman and the slave with a slave from a mafia law woman.
So whoever his brother forgives him,
let me give you a scenario. Let me give you a scenario. Let's say my brother over here, I kill him.
in a fit of anger, I kill him.
And I killed him intentionally with something that I know would kill him Assad. So I killed my brother I sent over here.
And his father has a right to kill me right? has a right to ask the judges to kill me Why? Because I killed the apple of his eye. I killed his beloved son, his one and only Son. So he has a right to ask the judge to kill me as well. Yet Allah subhanaw taala reminds us that even in this circumstance, this person is still your brother. This is what Allah calls him.
So whoever his brother forgives him,
meaning this person
whose son you just killed is still your brother.
Even though you have done the worst thing you can do to him,
the worst thing you can do to him kill his son. His most beloved thing in this world the most precious thing in this world, you have killed him still He's your brother in Islam.
doing any more proofs after this.
To me any more by after this any more clarification after this.
To prove the fact that we brothers, we Muslims are brothers in the religion, nothing separates us. Nothing can come between us. No nationality, no nothing comes between us. This is why I come from 25 hours away by plane from Australia down under to this land and I find a nation of brothers. I find a people willing to accept me into their houses because I am their brother in Islam nothing more. I'm a rock star. I'm not a rich man, I am only their brother in Islam. And that is we're lucky enough.
That is enough for them to open their houses to me, for them, to be kind to me to be generous to me to love me more than their own family. Because why? Because we remind each other of the effort whereas the families remind you of this
My brothers and sisters in Islam.
We are at this time in the community plagued with a lot of evils.
We have a lot of evils in our community.
the cause and purpose of which
the reason for which is our disunity
is that we are not united.
We don't have a clear stance.
We don't fast on the same day. We don't pray eat on the same day. We don't even pray. We don't even on the same day.
We can't even pray Our fudger prayers on the same on the same time. Our prayers at different times. We can't come together. Yeah.
What is wrong with us?
What is wrong with us?
What is it that has that has made us forget this, that we are brothers in the religion? People come to me and say, Oh, brother, I like a sister who is from Bangladesh. I am Pakistani, but I like a sister from Bangladesh. But the parents say I can't get married to them. Why? Because they will not be able to show their faces in the community ever again. Why? Because their children will be marrying someone from a different race. When will we break the barriers of nationality? When will we break these barriers down?
When we break these barriers down,
we stand next to each other in solid we feel any hate and anger.
The Why do we feel hate and anger in such matters as this? Why is it that every time I come here? Why is it that the young people are all talking about the fact that they that they can't get married to a woman or another sister because the parents don't agree? Why don't they agree not because of religion? No, no, no. No. Because of nationality? Because of race, because of color.
Amazing, amazing. I know of a brother in Australia,
who when he wanted to get married, why am I giving the example of marriage because it is one of the most important signs. If you can give your brother your daughter to any Tom, Dick and Harry any good Muslim who comes and ask for a hands. That that is the time then then we know there will be no facade in the society. That is the time we know that our hearts will be together. If you can give your most precious thing your most precious jewel, your little data, if you can give it to this man who you don't even know but you trust him because he's a brother in this lab. That is the time that we know that we can move mountains and we can break walls. And we can we can patsies
and offer brother in Australia when he wanted to get married 29 sisters who sold world record I think a world record 29 sisters, so
I just got a laugh. I have to laugh. I mean, it's so pitiful, but I have to laugh
is so tragic. And he came and told me say Oh brother, every one of them. The sister would agree. Every one of them the sister would agree with the parents would not agree. Why would the parents not agree my brother?
Aren't you rich? Because I'm rich?
Don't you have a house? of course have a house? Are you big and fat and ugly? No, you're not big and fat and ugly. You're nice and handsome?
Are you disabled? No, I'm not disabled.
What is it my brothers?
What is it that has stopped these 29 families from giving their daughters to this person who is trying to fear Allah subhanaw taala protect himself, protect himself from the Zina. What is it that is stopping them from giving their daughters What is it?
Because they are not Lebanese?
He doesn't speak our language. He is not Lebanese. The kids are gonna grow up so panela
How can we give our daughters to them? Are you out of your mind?
Well, it is the time when we break these barriers. When we break these barriers over this, that is the time truly that our communities will come together.
Our hearts will come together. When we have a new generation of youth. When we have a new generation of youth who do not identify to one nation or another
But identify to Islam only
when they can't say I am Bengali or I am Hindi or I'm Pakistani or I'm so the or I'm Lebanese, when they can only say I am a child of Islam.
That is the time truly that we will find unity because we have common ground. We have something common we don't have anything else that stops us from the Unity and our brotherhood.
Let me remind you my brothers of the tour of Masada Salaam with that I will conclude today
let me remind you of the daughter of Musa alayhis salaam to Allah subhanaw taala which is a suta
What does it say?
Allah subhanaw taala codes Musa al Salaam that he made an urgent door to Allah subhana wa tada asking Allah subhana wa tada Allah to give him certain things from the things that musala syllabus was washed last Saturday and a cure the sickness in my heart
was Luca melissani and cure the Aqua and the difficulty that is my tan and thereafter he said something which we should be asking Allah subhanaw taala for every day
What was your amin
and give me a zeal give me a helper.
Literally it means the minister. bowtie means is a helper give me a helper
from my people from the Muslims give me a brother will help me.
Harun my brother, who should be as free
so that I may make my back strong with him. So that I may be strength and strong affairs may become straight and strong with him. Not Alone. But with him. Well, Ashley Kofi Embry, and the I may join him in my affair, the I may join him in my in my affair came sub B hacker kathira. so that we may praise you and exalt you together, together, not borne out by one together, praying together to a must pantalla worshiping Allah together.
One of kurata kathira and that we may remember you are not
in a cocoon Sabina basura Verily, you are ever cyfle over us rarely you're ever witness over us. My brothers and sisters Islam, let us make a sincere dua to Allah subhanaw taala to join between the hearts of the believers, just like you join between the hearts of the companions, and to let us taste the sweetness of the man by loving for our brothers what we love for ourselves, For verily that is immense. And anything other than that is not demand.
Anything other than that is not a man. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to let us taste the sweetness of the man by loving for our brothers what we love for ourselves. And in conclusion, I quote to the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Muslim, even
when a surah does
mention that after the people will cross the sea, a lot of the people will cross over the sutra, which is over the hellfire. And they will come to this place just before Jenna, they're about to enter Jana just before Jenna, but then Allah subhanaw taala at that point will judge between the believers. So at that time, Allah subhanaw taala will take a brother another brother out to Muslim Brothers, he will take them out he will single them out and take them out. Thereafter. Allah Pantanal will say has this person wronged you? Has this person wronged you? And he will say Yes brother, yes, Allah. He has wronged me.
So Allah will say, Okay, take from his good deeds. So this person was taken from his good deeds take from his good deeds take from his good deeds, to the extent that there is no more good deeds left on this brother on this Muslim man. He has just passed 50,000 years standing in the sun, and he has succeeded Allah has forgiven him and allow him to gender and he has passed the syrup yet now he sends a good deal going. his good deeds are going so he's left with nothing but bad deeds.
And so Allah, Allah will say to this man, are you satisfied? Man will say no Allah I have even more. He has wronged me even more. So Allah will say put your bad deeds on him. So you can continue on putting his bad deeds, putting his bad deeds, putting his bad deeds on this man
until he has no more bad deeds left this person and he has only good deeds and this
other person who only has bad deeds to Pamela, this guy is doing for the fire, isn't he? This brother of his is doomed for the fire. And then Allah subhanaw taala will say to this man, as soon as the sun continued in the Hadith, He will say to this brother in Islam say also and so
on so and so I will give you this and this in Paradise, I will increase your levels and I'll give you this and this and this and I'll give you that and that. And Allah will continue to mention so many things that this man will say, Oh Allah, why are you giving me so much? Why?
Why what is it that you want me to do that Allah will say on one condition?
On one condition, the men will say, Oh Allah say it, and I will
say it and I will do it.
And Allah subhanaw taala The one who wants us to be brothers will tell this man, forgive your brother.
forgive your brother.
Oh, that's it. That's it. You will give me all of this just so I can forgive my brother. I make you my witness or Allah that I have forgiven me. I make you my witness Allah that I forgiven him.
Do you see this? Do you see how Allah wants us to be brothers? Allah wants to be brothers Pamela. He doesn't need to give this man great rewards, cetera, et cetera. He doesn't need to save this man's nail file. Allah has no need but Allah wants us to be brothers. Allah wants us to be brothers. When will you realize this? And then also the last lesson of continued that this man will proceed to gender he will continue on going to gender that Allah will tell him Stop.
Stop don't enter gender.
Don't enter gentlemen. And the man will say why Allah
what do you want me to do? And then Allah subhanho wa Taala will say take your brother's hand in your hand and antigen some
alert he was a
couple of questions actually not related to the topic, but I will start actually with that which is which is related to the topic says Salaam Alaikum Salaam who was the prophet SAW sentence brother when he
made brothers between them somehow God also since brother was added
so he made brotherhood between himself and it even though it was it was not from the unsolved but it was from the majority
says regarding pictures and images we go to questions that are not related to the topic says regarding pictures and images pictures of humans are not allowed that is a film allowed if so, how and why
the most critical opinion regarding videos and films is that in Charlotte is allowed it is only a vasila It is only a vasila means and the party that in fact says the party the ruling says
the Vasa is the means to do anything has the Hong Kong of its end and purpose the means have the Hong Kong office and purpose so if you use it for good then it becomes halal and permissible and recommended and if you use it for haram
for something that is that is not allowed, then it becomes prohibited and haram and disliked
says here regarding bodybuilding, I understand tattoos are haram as it changes the body is this the same with bodybuilding as increase the size of the body?
No tattoos are not allowed because it is images of the body.
So it is for this reason that tattoos are not allowed. However, as for bodybuilding, this is something which is recommended Of course within limits and for the right purposes with the intention of preparing and being fit etc. And being a strong Muslim not with the intention of
not with the intention of showing off and you know, showing off and you know, know what I'm talking about? Yeah, okay, don't show off please. Located with us, we're beefy. Okay.
Unfortunately Of course, people have to always remember the intention and something like this you know the intention can always go go wrong. And if you do bodybuilding and you do pump some iron, do for the sake of Allah spatola not for anything else says here regarding slamming frames of frame such as yeah Allah Mohammed Salim Mohammed. Okay. A lot to be on the wall together of frames with images of Makkah.
Even Allah mentions
that Allah subhanaw taala did not
reveal this code except that it should be read and understood it is for this reason why it was founded revealed in Arabic And he did not reveal it in gibberish or any other language okay let's reveal the Arabic so that it can be understood by us so that we can read it and gain knowledge from it and that we can cherish it not that we may design posters with it not that we may design
you know put up things on the on the on the wall with it as we see many times for example, you know, the whole code written on the on one poster as far as I've seen that this is all not from the purposes of should not be done and it really isn't innovation the religion there is no proof to say to the competitors to do this except that the fact that it has been reported that even your loved one who used to have a a What can you say a tablet around his neck was on it, but obviously this is not the reason that people talk about no but he used to have it so that you can look at it and recite from it and memorize it not that he may you know gain protection from it or that he may hang
it up hang it up for for design and and viewing pleasure etc etc. So, all of this should be avoided all of this should be avoided. So we must not use the four as a means of
of art rather than as a educational book is it's a book of knowledge and it should be that should not be put up in frames as people do because of course it is only a a thing of beauty and not a matter of understanding not a thing from which we gain knowledge from
many people say they give the excuse that okay if I have sued I have seen for example written in my house every time I see it I will end up reading will ask you How many times have you read those people who actually have this what is in the house how many times the reader actually the people who have the suit is in the house are the ones who don't read it
This is usually the case usually the case so my advice to you really is not to do this if you want if you want for example to hand small doors that may be from the doors on the on the world for example on the door before going out so that reminds you of the of the noise you caught etc etc all of this is inshallah permissible as a learning aid as a learning tool. However not for decoration, calligraphy, etc etc. All of this is incorrect this slide in the religion knows best.
Regarding racing, are we allowed to drive fast in the car have original cars with one another? I was told it is not as it is putting lives at risk but what isn't driving a car dangerous anyway.
I'm gonna tell you guys a joke. Okay, it's a nice joke. It's not a joke between me and you. It's a joke between Chicago and Chicago.
Okay, something that happened between them.
Once a student of ours Oshima, he went to visit chef Alberni, Ramallah
and he got in the car with sugar daddy and sugar daddy, Mashallah and Jordan, very fast driver she was driving very fast. So, this guy, he grabs hold of his seat say what are you doing? You know, why are you driving so fast slow down a little bit you know.
And, and he goes chefin boss said it is not permissible to drive fast
speed meaning speed above the speed limit. And so she said Go and tell him
Go and tell him in bars This is a son of Rasulullah Saracen meaning that was super super sensitive that when he used to come back from from traveling, obviously used to speed up speed up when you saw Medina because obviously the sight of seeing within it and I can tell you when I saw Medina as well and whenever I've gone back to back to Makkah, and then we're coming back to Medina, but like the very sight of it, we just want to speed up and hurry up and get into it. Okay, so those are some use to hurry up speed speed with his horse, etc, etc. Speed with this camel when he was near Medina. So this is what she was referring to. That it should not speak. But he just just put it like that.
And so I hope it's gonna be funny. I just hope it's gonna be funny because I don't know, you know, some brothers we had to intellectually upper class Oh, this don't find it funny. But anyhow, listen to this. Listen to this. And so this brother goes back to shacman bass. This is actual actual thing. And he said your share shabani told me to tell you that it is so natural speed as good to speed. Because it's a map. It's recommended, isn't it?
And so she started laughing and it said these
Other words of a person who is not used to playing who is not used to paying but man.
Okay, I'm sorry. Not funny. Isn't it so funny? So funny you forgot to laugh right?
What he's saying is Michelle Barney hasn't obviously hasn't killed someone yet. So he hasn't paid blood money yet so he doesn't know what it feels to actually have an accident while speeding okay now Mashallah brothers are now laughing and smiling and finally understood. So in answer to this question is speeding good no speeding is not good. You should not disobey the speeding limits it's not permissible. These have been put for your own own guidance for your own safety and you should follow them and as for racing cars awarded inshallah
you know, racial divorces if you can get some horses to race with the horses, you know, you can cause an accident with that inshallah except break your neck. But so race with the horse is not with the Constitution.
Okay, it says here
regarding marriage if my parents verbally agreed to a second party that I would get married to her when we grow up, but during this period I was with another female who I want to marry What should I do? islamically First of all, statically you shouldn't be with another female. Okay, what are you doing being with another female fear Allah subhanaw taala Why are you sacrificing your wives agenda for the women of this dunya Why are we sacrificing our wives agenda? For the wives of this dunya Subhana Allah when you think about it, and brothers who say oh, this is a beautiful girl down the road and this and that or rather on with this woman I'm with that woman on Mashallah, I love her so
this person was so driven mad by the women of this dunya Why are you sacrificing your wives in paradise? Your beautiful beautiful, beautiful, beautiful wives and paradise for the wives in this dunya who will be a headache for you? Why do you wish to strangle yourself and choke yourself? Subhanallah it is true Really? Isn't it? Why do you want to commit sins by which Allah subhanaw taala may prohibit you from going to
make May May prohibit you from going to Geneva may not give you from these wives agenda. Why do you wish to do this for this for a couple of minutes a pleasure? So Pamela So first of all, you shouldn't be with this other girl Second of all, if it isn't Charlotte that you have been with her islamically meaning that if you've come to know for anyone to marry her, then inshallah inshallah it is your IT IS YOUR right it is your right you have to actually approach your parents and say that I want to marry this girl and I don't want to marry anyone else. And then they can they can they can take it from there and shall not do it in the best of ways. inshallah Asahi dunya moroka. Be with
them in this dunya and the best of manners, even if they don't agree, which is most probably the case. And that's why you're writing this question.
If they don't agree, still be with them the nicest of ways. You know, spread your wings and mercy around them. Make dua for them, give them gifts, convince them, bribe them. bribe them. Yes, bribe your parents, but in the private parents lives Pamela When's the last time you bought your mother a gift? When's the last time you bought your father a car? When's the last time you bought your father shirt. Once you've loaded last time, you took your mother and father out for dinner just by themselves, bribe them
bribe your parents in Java, they will be with you. They don't want how for you they want good for you. It's only when you can when you make them realize this fact when you make them realize this fact they will be on your side and not against you inshallah.
I think when I when I said that, you know I was given the example that I killed him or something he didn't like it. So
I have to finish three minutes before so he says this is the last question we have here.
I've actually mentioned this can we have trade with Jews and Muslims in UK or interest is interest harder for Muslims living in UK or haram please clarify.
Must Mandela has not prohibited us from trading Allah, Allah has made trading harder for us as a lesson
that he has made trade hello everybody wrong. It is one of the opinions of some of the scholars some of the scholars were of the opinion that haram trade practices are allowed in non Muslim countries. However, this is a very very weak opinion, very weak opinion that which vast majority of the LMR or upon is that it is not permissible to do Riba or any sort of haram contract in in a place where with with non Muslims rule is not permissible to do Riba or any other haram contract
in a place in which non Muslims are in authority
So you are obliged by Islam, to if you lend money to a Jew, you must not charge interest on that, even though it may be that he will charge interest on you, however, you must not charge interest on that,
in the same way around business practices, you're not allowed to do that. Just because you are living it with non Muslims, it does not give you a permissibility of of cheating them, taking their money harming them in any way or every way possible. And first of all, you know, I'm quite amazed at this question. Lastly, actually,
you know, really amazed that this this question, because at the end of the day, my brothers and sisters, you are stuck here in England, you are stuck here in England, this is not an Islamic country, this is a British country, they have their own cultures, their own values, you cannot, you cannot put your own values and impose it upon them, because you have entered with an agreement with them. So, you cannot therefore steal their money, you cannot cheat them you cannot live in alignment with them. You must agree with them and treat them in the same way as they treat you.
So their laws apply to you just like your laws apply to them when they come to your country. So when they come to to Islamic country, they must not come except for example, that they covered themselves and they cannot deal an alcohol. Why is it that Muslims do not allow them? Why is it that we Muslims obliged non Muslims to practice our laws in our countries and we say that we are not obliged to follow their laws in their own country. Is this the Hakuna Matata? Is this following the hokum of the of the of the of the devil? No, it's not. It's not why because this is to do with matters of istilah. This has to do with matters which is between human beings living in a community. It's not
something that goes against the last part and so it is permissible that is why it is not permissible to break the traffic laws. It's not permissible to speak it's not permissible to not wear seatbelts. It is obligatory to wear seatbelts islamically these obligatory why because it is from the rules land and you've entered this land with this condition. And Allah, Allah knows best of luck a lot more.
stuff will go to relay
