00:03:50--> 00:03:52

Can we just see the older kids are definitely

00:03:53--> 00:03:55

the right places inshallah

00:04:13--> 00:04:16

I think moving you need to move a little bit now you came and sat in the gap we just made

00:05:26--> 00:05:28

Okay with the camera got it completely

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

on.

00:05:38--> 00:06:12

Good to go. And hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala delay or suli Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ajmeri so apologies for the late start today because in the masjid we joined between Muslim and Asia because of the heavy rain so for that reason, we took a little bit longer than usual to get started I think a lot of people who normally come to the mercy of might be catching this from home via the YouTube live stream. We have a few people still with us in the masjid inshallah, to Allah we won't be taking

00:06:13--> 00:06:31

very long inshallah perhaps around about half an hour to 45 minutes, and then inshallah Allah will bring the class to a close. Okay, so we have talked about two in our two previous classes, what have we spoken about? What was our first class all about? Yes, movie?

00:06:34--> 00:06:38

Who is your Lord? Who is your Lord? Who is Allah?

00:06:39--> 00:06:49

And we answer that question, my Lord is Allah. We explained a little bit about that. And then we said, What was our second question? Yes, then

00:06:50--> 00:06:57

what is your religion? We said the religion is Islam. And we explained a bit about that.

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

Now, my third question is,

00:07:01--> 00:07:20

what is the third question that you will be asked in your grave? When everybody dies, the angel is going to ask that person, three questions murghab book, where my Dean oak was your Lord, what is your religion? And

00:07:22--> 00:07:44

who is that man who is sent among you? In other words, who is your prophet? Now, before I start talking about our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? I want to start by talking about the idea of prophets. Does anyone know what the word for prophet is in? Arabic?

00:07:46--> 00:07:46

Okay.

00:07:49--> 00:07:54

No, it's not Rasul. That's messenger, the word for profit

00:07:56--> 00:08:02

from among the kids, his kids class or we'll ask the kids to answer inshallah, yes, nebby

00:08:03--> 00:08:10

nebby. From the word or related to the word, never

00:08:11--> 00:08:17

meaning to receive information or to receive guidance from Allah.

00:08:18--> 00:08:25

And as for the word for a messenger, then this is Rasool

00:08:26--> 00:08:27

Rasul

00:08:28--> 00:08:29

the word for messenger.

00:08:31--> 00:08:36

So I want to ask you a question. Does anyone have any idea what the difference is between those two?

00:08:39--> 00:08:40

Between profit

00:08:41--> 00:08:48

and between? messenger First of all, which of those two words do we use for our profit?

00:08:51--> 00:09:11

Both so we use the word nabby. Profit and we use the word Rasul messenger, the word messenger I'm not, I'm not gonna ask you like religious it like a really difficult question. Just the word messenger. What does it in English? What do you think it relates to? messenger? Yes.

00:09:14--> 00:09:20

spreading a message, right? So that the word messenger relates to

00:09:21--> 00:09:29

the message in Arabic, we call it the reseller. Yeah, the reseller and the word

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

Prophet, or nebby comes from nuba which is Prophethood. And that relates to Revelation. Now, there's lots of different opinions about the difference between the two. And I don't want to go too much into it. There are I'll give you one or two of the most common things people say. So some people say that the difference some of the scholars, they say the difference is that

00:10:01--> 00:10:02

A prophet

00:10:05--> 00:10:06

receives

00:10:07--> 00:10:15

revelation from Allah. Right? But the raw soul is commanded to spread it,

00:10:16--> 00:10:17

to

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

spread it,

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

to share it.

00:10:24--> 00:10:34

And some of them said the Rasool is the one who has a new message. As for the Navy, the Navy is the one who

00:10:35--> 00:10:45

the one who was an only a Navy, the one who had their message was the previous message. Right? They didn't come with a new message.

00:10:47--> 00:10:48

They didn't come with a new message.

00:10:50--> 00:11:42

But as we said, we don't want to go into that in too much detail for our class. All we want to understand is in the beginning of our Prophet Mohammed cisilion, becoming a prophet. What did he become first? And when? And what did he become second? And when? And the answer is that he started off as a prophet when allies or a gel revealed to him a Cora Bhisma Robbie can levy hallak read in the name of your Lord who was created? Why did he Why was he given the title nebbia at that time, because revelation came to him, but he wasn't told to share it with anyone at that time. Does anyone know? The first idea in which the Prophet slicin was commanded? Was came from the Quran, when in

00:11:42--> 00:11:50

which Allah told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to spread the message of Islam and he became a school.

00:11:54--> 00:11:55

That's a difficult question.

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

The first ayah

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

in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told to spread so the first I ever What was that? The first is to first I in the whole car and what was that? Is Cora. Okay, Cora bismi Rob BK lady Holla Holla Holla insane I mean Allah, a Cora wala bukal Quran

00:12:21--> 00:12:26

lady I lemma bill column. I lemon insane Mr. Lemon Marlon.

00:12:28--> 00:12:31

That was the first part of the Quran that was revealed.

00:12:32--> 00:12:40

After that, when was the Prophet sighs I'm told go out and tell everybody about Islam. Try to convince people to come to Islam.

00:12:46--> 00:12:47

Does anyone know?

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

We should open it to the adults and any of the adults No.

00:13:04--> 00:13:11

This is where the adults get embarrassed that the kids are thinking okay kids. Come on son daughter answer.

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

Yeah, you help him with death. Calm for Angela.

00:13:18--> 00:13:22

Or you who is Elmo death are the one who is wrapped up in garments.

00:13:23--> 00:13:34

Comb, stand up for under and warn the people stand up and warn the people and that's why there's a famous statement that the prophet SAW Selim

00:13:35--> 00:13:46

knew the ikura what oh, Silla, Bill Modesto that the prophets lie. Selim became a prophet with ikura and he became a messenger with

00:13:47--> 00:13:55

Alma desert. Yeah, you helmet desert. Come for under, stand up and warn

00:13:56--> 00:14:17

the people. Okay. What do we know about profits? That's what I'm going to ask you now it's still generally talking about the idea of prophets and messengers. What do you know about lamb? Well, most selling about the prophets and the messengers

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

anything that you know?

00:14:21--> 00:14:22

Anything that you know?

00:14:24--> 00:14:24

Yes.

00:14:26--> 00:14:32

You know about you know, some of their life stories. Okay. Could you tell me who was the first

00:14:33--> 00:14:36

prophet? And who is the first messenger

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

were they the same? Are they different?

00:14:44--> 00:14:49

The first ever prophet Come on, I want someone else to give me an answer. The first ever profit.

00:14:51--> 00:14:52

Yes,

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

Adam, okay. Very good.

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

And the first one to ever have to spread the message because the people didn't believe in them. And they had to the first, the first messenger, the one who came with a message, and the people didn't believe and he had to try to convince them.

00:15:18--> 00:15:19

Who was that?

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

going?

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

Newark

00:15:26--> 00:15:41

Newark, la sala. Therefore item received revelation from Allah, Allah gave Adam revelation Allah gave Adam special knowledge that came from him that he revealed to him.

00:15:42--> 00:16:15

But I then didn't have to convince anyone to who didn't believe in Him to follow his religion. Because for 10 generations, 10 generations, all of the people generate generate we all know generation, right? 10. So Adam and his children and his children and his children, his children, his children, his children, and all the way 10 times 10 generations that people were pure Muslims. They didn't worship anything besides Allah.

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

And then the shaitaan came, and the shaytaan started to confuse the people.

00:16:24--> 00:16:37

In the beginning, I'm going to tell you a little story about how the shaitaan confused people. In the beginning, there was some pious people, good people, good people, good Muslims.

00:16:39--> 00:16:43

And they used to do a lot of good for their people. And they died.

00:16:44--> 00:16:58

And the shaytaan came to their children and the people in that age group, and the shade pond said to them, why don't you try to remember these? People? Don't forget them.

00:16:59--> 00:17:01

Why don't you make a picture?

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

So you won't forget them?

00:17:05--> 00:17:14

So they made a picture? Did they make a picture to worship it? Did they pray to the picture? Nope. Just made a picture to remember.

00:17:15--> 00:17:21

Then the shape Han came again? And he said, wouldn't it be better if you made a statue

00:17:24--> 00:17:43

because the picture is a bit flat. You know, you can't really remember how they used to be you can't really honor them like that, like you need to really honor them. They were your they used to inspire you. They used to be your guide help you how you need to really, you know, honor them really love them so much. should make a statue.

00:17:45--> 00:17:47

So they made a statue? Do they worship the statue?

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

Nope.

00:17:50--> 00:18:13

Just to remember. Then the shape line came later on. And he said your father's used to pray to this statue. So the people started praying to the statues. And that is how people went away from Islam in the very beginning. And Allah tells us about this in solar.

00:18:15--> 00:18:17

North and the is

00:18:22--> 00:18:32

we'll call Ooh, la luna, Lehigh chacun, whatever. Oh, Noah, Dan Wallace, who are when I was when I saw

00:18:33--> 00:18:35

were called out by Luke Seola.

00:18:38--> 00:18:50

Don't leave your gods and don't leave. What and Sua and Yahoo and Yahoo kanessa. And these five people, they were just five good people who became

00:18:53--> 00:18:59

things that people worshiped. And people started to worship them. And people started to

00:19:00--> 00:19:09

turn away from Allah. Because of what what made them really what would you say if you've heard that story? What really made those people turn away from Allah?

00:19:10--> 00:19:12

Why did they start worshipping those statues?

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

shaytaan was confused in that that's an excellent answer. So shaytaan confused them

00:19:29--> 00:19:44

because they copy their what their fathers were doing without knowledge. And that's a big problem, isn't it? What either Pineda who tiberiu Manzella law, calu bednet tebbe aroma. And finally,

00:19:48--> 00:20:00

if it is said to them believe in what Allah revealed. They say we follow what our fathers did. They don't look for the proof. Now that doesn't mean your mom and dad are bad or something.

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

Like that, that's not always saying. But we seeing that what Allah said, that's the truth, right? And sometimes as moms and dads, we might get that right and we might get that wrong.

00:20:11--> 00:20:51

But what matters is what a loss it what the prophet said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that's what matters, right? It's not what matters that someone says, Oh, don't tell me about Allah. I just want to know what my mom and dad used to do and what my grandma and granddad used to do. That's what those people did. And their grandma and granddad and mom and dad didn't used to worship those idols, but the shaitaan trick them into thinking that they that they did, but still, what would you say? Really? What would you say? That was the real reason? Why? What was? What happened to them? What did they fall into?

00:20:56--> 00:20:59

Where did they go wrong in the beginning, in the very beginning,

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

making pictures that's very true. And that's why it's not allowed for us to have pictures of human beings, or animals. And it's not allowed for us to have that those things to draw pictures of people or pictures of animals. And it's not allowed for us to put photographs on the wall, and so on, and print photographs of people animals out. It's very important. That's a very valid point. The prophets I seldom said I should do nasty I've ever been Yokoyama, the people who will have the worst punishment yamaki Amma our

00:21:37--> 00:21:41

muscle we want the people who take the pictures or people who make pictures.

00:21:45--> 00:21:54

What they fell into, in the beginning, is having too much love and too much exaggerating about good people.

00:21:56--> 00:22:10

That's what they fell into GGC Do you kind of understand what I mean? Like they had to their heart was too much attached to those good people, to the point where they put them too high up.

00:22:11--> 00:22:25

They put them too high up. Instead of saying these were good people, Allah bless them, Allah give them gender, they put them so high up, that they ended up worshipping them instead of Allah.

00:22:27--> 00:22:49

And that's why one of the things that is the worst of the things and the things that really causes the biggest problem for people is too much exaggerating and too much, putting someone too high up in terms of good people, good Muslims are just raising people above where they should be.

00:22:52--> 00:23:07

That was a side point on the topic of how things started. So who was sent to those people to call them back? Knowing right, you said to me, no, had a solemn note was sent back to those people to call those people

00:23:09--> 00:23:10

back to Allah.

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

So, what was the job of knowing then, what was the message that North came with? What if you if you always say summarize for me the message of knowing what was numerous

00:23:24--> 00:23:25

key points.

00:23:29--> 00:23:36

The same message excellent, I like that a lot, very good, same messages Adam, what was the basic message North came with?

00:23:42--> 00:23:43

I need a Buddha law.

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

What who will alter your own

00:23:50--> 00:23:53

and there are different wordings in the different stories of not in the Quran.

00:23:56--> 00:24:02

But generally, the the message that I came up with was worship Allah.

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

have Taqwa of Allah

00:24:08--> 00:24:37

and obey me. Listen to me. What's taqwa mean? taqwa means to do as much as you can to do good things. And keep us away from a bad as many bad things as possible. Do as many good things as you can keep away from as many bad things as you can. So no, in summary came to say, worship Allah, do good things. Keep away from the bad things and listen to me. And the message of all the prophets was worship Allah and follow the Prophet.

00:24:39--> 00:24:41

That was the message all the prophets came with.

00:24:42--> 00:24:54

Worship Allah and follow your messenger. So what the news in summary What did he say to his people worship Allah, follow the messenger.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

We've already talked about worshiping Allah in the class.

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

Who is your Lord? Remember that right? Our first class we talked about worshiping Allah. So now following the messenger

00:25:10--> 00:25:15

What does it mean to follow the messenger?

00:25:17--> 00:25:29

Any any prophet or messenger like the people of Zurich? What did they actually have to do? What was what was when he said while to your own a baby? What did they have to do? Yes.

00:25:31--> 00:25:44

Okay excellent for the Muslims follow the Quran for those people in that time follow the Scripture, they had a follow the the scripture the book that was given to that Prophet. Excellent. That's a perfect answer. What else?

00:25:50--> 00:25:55

Okay, listen to what he tells you to do. Okay, we're getting that we're getting that

00:26:02--> 00:26:07

follow their soon follow their way or their guidance. Very good. Good.

00:26:09--> 00:26:27

I still want a bit more of a breakdown of what that means even follow Quran follow soon obey them, I want I want to sort of understand, what does it mean? I say Mohammed or Rasulullah. Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. But what is that? What do I actually have to do with that? What does that mean for me?

00:26:30--> 00:26:41

follow the guidance you're given I like that's very good as well. All these answers are very good. It really means three things in detail. You all right. You're all correct. But there's three real things in detail that we need.

00:26:42--> 00:26:47

Number one, that you believe in what the prophet said.

00:26:48--> 00:26:51

Because what does the Prophet tell you about?

00:26:52--> 00:26:57

Does he tell you about things you know, or tell you about things that you didn't know before?

00:27:00--> 00:27:01

What do you think?

00:27:03--> 00:27:12

tells you about things you didn't know he tells you about things you can't see about things you didn't know about before. He tells you about the high?

00:27:13--> 00:27:34

The Unseen. He tells you about gender? Have any of you ever been to gender? No. Okay. He tells you about jahannam the Hellfire? Have you any? Have you ever seen the Hellfire? No, he tells you about Allah. Have any of you ever seen a lot? No, you won't see a lot until after you die.

00:27:35--> 00:27:45

He tells you about what will happen in the future. Does any of you do any of you have that knowledge of what will happen in the future. So you have to believe what he tells you.

00:27:47--> 00:27:49

Even when other people don't believe it.

00:27:50--> 00:27:56

So for example, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that one day

00:27:57--> 00:28:03

the sun is going to rise from the west instead of the East.

00:28:05--> 00:28:06

For example,

00:28:09--> 00:28:25

that one day, just before the day of judgment, the sun will go the other way and rise from the west instead of the East. And on that day, it will not be accepted for anyone to change and become Muslim after that.

00:28:26--> 00:28:28

That's the chance for Islam finishes.

00:28:29--> 00:28:46

Does any of us do it? Can any of us even imagine how the sun could go the other way around in the sky? We can't imagine it right? Maybe we might go to a scientist, the scientist might say that can't happen. That's not gonna happen. Who do we believe? The scientist or the Prophet?

00:28:47--> 00:29:08

The Prophet? That's what it means to say Mohammed or Rasulullah. Mohammed is the Messenger of Allah, that I believe in what he tells me whether I understand I don't understand whether it makes sense or doesn't make sense to me. My it makes sense to no doubt it makes sense in general. But if it doesn't, I can't understand it, or I can't make sense of it.

00:29:10--> 00:29:11

Doesn't matter I believe.

00:29:12--> 00:29:19

That's the first thing. What the second thing I have to do is what we said here I have to obey.

00:29:20--> 00:29:34

So I don't just have to believe believe means what he told me is going to tell me things. He's going to tell me things about the past. about what happened to know and what happened to Ibrahim and what happened to Maria and what happened to I wasn't there.

00:29:37--> 00:29:56

Well, Mark quintella de him. Is your corner calama home au homea columbarium. Woman quintella de him. idiocracy, moon, you went there, when they were drawing lots about who is going to look after Maria. was any of us there when Maria was a little girl and they were deciding who was going to look after Maria.

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

No, none of us were there.

00:30:00--> 00:30:20

We went there. When the Prophet told us we believe what he told us about it. We believe what he told us will happen in the future. We believe what he told us about Allah what he told us about Jenna what he told us about what will happen when we die. What he told us about the angels, if any of you ever seen an angel met an angel, talk to an angel, no.

00:30:22--> 00:30:26

But we believe and we don't just believe we do what

00:30:28--> 00:30:28

we

00:30:29--> 00:30:32

obey. What is the word obey me?

00:30:35--> 00:30:39

Follow and listen, listen and follow. So you listen.

00:30:40--> 00:30:53

And you do what you're taught. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there's actually a really, really amazing story. I'm going to tell you about a being the Prophet sallallahu it was said

00:30:55--> 00:31:02

there was a woman and she came to from not mistaken urban Mr. route

00:31:03--> 00:31:11

from the LA horns hub. She came to a Sahabi. And she said to the Sahabi, she said, What is the ruling of

00:31:13--> 00:31:15

plucking out the hairs in the eyebrows?

00:31:19--> 00:31:23

He said it is haram, not allowed.

00:31:25--> 00:31:26

She said, Where is this?

00:31:28--> 00:31:32

Where's that? Where's the proof for this? He said it's in the Quran.

00:31:34--> 00:31:41

She said I went through the Quran from the beginning to the end and I never saw anything mentioned about the

00:31:42--> 00:31:43

eyebrows.

00:31:45--> 00:31:46

He said it's in the Quran.

00:31:47--> 00:32:02

Didn't you hear when Allah said one? Turkoman rasuluh for Hulu, woman a heck of an inventor who? Whatever the messenger gives you, you have to take it. And whatever the messenger tells you not to do, you must not do it. Does that make sense?

00:32:03--> 00:32:14

So it will someone might say, you know, sometimes we hear people say, Oh is in the Quran? What's in the Quran? I believe, right? But if it's not in the Quran, then maybe it's not.

00:32:15--> 00:32:37

Maybe it doesn't matter. No, it's not just the Quran. It's the Quran. And it is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us and we try to listen to him. We try to follow him. We try to obey Him. sallallahu alayhi wasallam and there's one more thing

00:32:38--> 00:32:52

one more thing and that is if I asked you the question, how do you pray? What's your answer gonna be I don't want you to I start with tech VR and I raised my I want to know generally give me a one line answer. How do you pray?

00:32:55--> 00:33:05

You all pray? Anyone here? Not pre. Your pre. How do you pray? I want one you to answer me in one line. So we've got one person with their hand up.

00:33:06--> 00:33:11

How do you pray? Can I give you only one line to answer? Yes, moving

00:33:13--> 00:33:22

on. You filled in too long. You didn't finish the whole prayer one line. I want you to finish the whole prep. I want to explain the whole prayer to me in no more than

00:33:24--> 00:33:26

I'll give you maximum 10 words.

00:33:31--> 00:33:43

How the Prophet told you to beautiful Anastos, aka la halen. That's completely right. How do you pray? I prayed the way the Prophet did. How do you fast?

00:33:44--> 00:33:45

Give you another 10 words?

00:33:47--> 00:33:50

The way the Prophet did, how do you go to Hajj

00:33:52--> 00:33:53

the way the Prophet did?

00:33:55--> 00:33:58

How do you do any kind of worship in Islam?

00:33:59--> 00:34:36

The way the Prophet did sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when you when Allah tells you, that you have to believe in the Prophet, or the prophets, what is required from you at the time of the Prophet when the Prophet came to his people, and he told them that you have to you have to follow me and you have to worship Allah and follow me. There is three things needed. Number one, believe in what you're told. Number two, listen, and do what you're told. And number three, only worship a lot the way the Prophet showed you.

00:34:39--> 00:34:42

Okay, can you remember those three? What are those three

00:34:43--> 00:34:52

Firstly, believe in what you're told believe in the stories about the future about the unseen what you're told the information you're given believe in it number two,

00:34:54--> 00:34:56

obey number three,

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

worship the way that you are.

00:35:01--> 00:35:37

shown the way the profit shows okay brilliant. So that was true for every profit who came every profit came. So afternoon many profits came and many profits came and there were five really really important profits from the most important profit about which Allah said was spear camel sobre una Azmi Mina Rasul Be patient like the five most important prophets were patient. I mean, what do you think Ibrahim is number two after in order of

00:35:38--> 00:35:49

in order of their life, so number one was new. Number two was Ibrahim in terms of their who came first in terms of time who came first, who came after Ibrahim.

00:35:53--> 00:35:55

I want from the fight from Allah Azim.

00:35:56--> 00:36:00

Moosa and after Moosa from the five came

00:36:03--> 00:36:04

go and try.

00:36:10--> 00:36:21

Not sure. Okay. No, no, after we're talking about in time, five, the five most important new Ebrahim Moosa.

00:36:25--> 00:36:52

aisyah, you visited Risa and then the fifth one, and everyone put up your hand. Everyone put up your hand, put your hand, put up your hand, put up your hand, put up your hand, put up your hand, everyone put up your hand. Okay. One single voice, who is the fifth 1123 Mohammed salah and he said, okay, hamdulillah Mohammed sighs one of those five, who was the best of them?

00:36:54--> 00:37:15

Okay, everyone knows now. Yes, good. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. As for who was second best, we don't have a clear answer about who was second who was third, who was fourth? We don't have a clear answer. Some of the scholars said Ibrahim and but we don't have a clear answer. But we know our Prophet Mohammed Sai Salem was the best.

00:37:16--> 00:37:20

He was the best of all of them. And he was the last of all of them.

00:37:21--> 00:37:25

Was his message any different? His basic message?

00:37:27--> 00:37:28

His basic message?

00:37:30--> 00:37:34

No, his basic message was worship Allah

00:37:35--> 00:37:52

and follow me. Like all the prophets said, How do we say worship Allah and follow me. We say a shadow and La ilaha illallah wa eyeshadow and Mohammed den Rasulullah. I bear witness what does it mean to bear witness?

00:37:55--> 00:37:56

What does it mean to be a witness?

00:37:59--> 00:38:00

What does it mean to be a witness?

00:38:03--> 00:38:11

If you're in a court case, what does it mean? The court you into court and the judge said, Did you witness this? What does it mean to be a witness?

00:38:14--> 00:38:15

You

00:38:17--> 00:38:28

tell something you know is true, right? Yeah. You say something in front of everyone. And you tell people I know that this is true. Right?

00:38:31--> 00:38:47

So you come in front of everybody and you say ash, how do I am witnessing, I'm telling you that I am sure and certain that it is true, that there is no god that deserves to be worshipped, except Allah.

00:38:49--> 00:38:50

And I bear witness

00:38:52--> 00:38:53

that Muhammad

00:38:54--> 00:38:55

is the Messenger of Allah.

00:38:59--> 00:39:01

What does that mean? You worship Allah alone.

00:39:02--> 00:39:06

You get rid of and avoid everything that is worshipped besides Allah.

00:39:08--> 00:39:16

You believe in what the prophet SAW Selim told you. You follow him in what he told you to do. You listen to him.

00:39:18--> 00:39:32

And you do things the way that he showed you, you do your acts of worship, you do your prayers and your fasting and you'll do the way that he showed you how to do it. The way that he showed you, that was the basic message.

00:39:33--> 00:39:36

Now the prophets came with proofs.

00:39:37--> 00:39:41

Because Could you imagine if someone just stood up and said, Hi, everyone.

00:39:42--> 00:39:45

I'm here to tell you that I've got a message from God.

00:39:46--> 00:40:00

People would call them names, right? People would call them crazy people would say that you are just trying to get your father's power, money and wealth and you're trying to control people. You just want to be in trouble.

00:40:01--> 00:40:04

So what did the prophets bring as proofs?

00:40:06--> 00:40:09

Really we can talk about two things the prophets brought as proofs.

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

Scripture so the Quran when we say scripture, what we mean is the book that came from Allah, that the prophets, each Prophet, each messenger was given that scripture, right? Each messenger was given that scripture and the scripture of Islam is the Quran. By scripture, we mean, the, the book that came from Allah, did that book come from the Prophet?

00:40:41--> 00:40:42

Who wrote the Quran?

00:40:45--> 00:40:47

As a trick question, I'm sorry, I rephrase it.

00:40:49--> 00:40:55

Because that idea of wrote the Quran and says that, we're going to say that a different way. It's a trick question.

00:40:57--> 00:41:04

What do we say about the Quran? We say the Quran is the speech of who?

00:41:05--> 00:41:15

Allah? Is it the speech of gibreel? No, is it the speech of Mohammed? No, it is the speech of Allah.

00:41:16--> 00:41:25

It came from Allah directly. And jabril brought it safely to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:41:28--> 00:41:33

And that was true of all the books that came before because the Quran was not the first book that came

00:41:34--> 00:41:35

was not the first book that came.

00:41:36--> 00:41:42

Many came before. But do we have any of them? kept safe for us?

00:41:43--> 00:41:48

Are there any fit? Is there any other books? What about the Bible? Do we not have the Bible?

00:41:49--> 00:41:55

Torah, the gospel, the Psalms of David and the Old Testament, the New Testament?

00:41:58--> 00:42:10

We have the but there's a triple trust me, we have a Bible. There's, I mean, there's a Bible. It's not a Bible in the masjid, for obvious reasons. But there is, there is I mean, there is a we have copies of the Bible. Why is that? No good?

00:42:11--> 00:42:13

Why can I not follow the Bible?

00:42:16--> 00:42:17

Because it was changed.

00:42:18--> 00:42:40

And it was lost. And it was all mixed and muddled up, and people speech went in there, and lies went in there, and the truth went in there, and it all got muddled up into a big mix of truth and false and people's ideas and profit statements, and it just got all jumbled up together.

00:42:41--> 00:42:46

If the Bible was preserved, if it was pure from Allah, could I follow it?

00:42:50--> 00:43:06

Here's an interesting question. So let's just presume so imagine that the book that was given to Isa is in front of me and I have it in my hands, the book that was given to a PSA, word for word, the same book, letter for letter word for word, nothing change. Could I follow it?

00:43:11--> 00:43:13

Let's have a show of hands who thinks Yes?

00:43:18--> 00:43:19

Who thinks know

00:43:22--> 00:43:26

how vv you're correct. The answer is no. Why?

00:43:27--> 00:43:34

Because the core an comes after it. And the one that comes after

00:43:35--> 00:44:09

takes all the everything that came before. Does that make sense? The new one that comes? Okay. Now the old one is there for our information. We believe in it, but we follow the new and the last one that came and that was the Quran and that's because the Prophet Mohammed. So I said, he said, walleye. Or he said, well let in fcbd. He said, I swear by Allah, the One whose hand my soul is in. If moose was alive, he would have had to have followed me.

00:44:11--> 00:44:59

Does that make sense? If Marcel was alive, he would be the one following me. Because the rule of every prophet is, let me know nabby he will attend sorona. You bill, if there's another prophet comes after a prophet. The first prophet has to follow the one that came after. If there's another book that comes after the first book, then the last book is the one that you have to you have to follow. Now, that doesn't mean that we don't believe in the earlier books. We believe in them. It doesn't mean we don't believe in the earlier prophets. We believe in all the earlier prophets and messengers, but which one do we have to follow? Exactly. That is the Prophet Mohammed sighs lm and

00:44:59--> 00:45:00

the

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

Book is the Quran.

00:45:03--> 00:45:15

What about then the stuff that came before? How do we explain the things that came before? What we say about the things that came before is there's one of three situations.

00:45:16--> 00:45:19

For example, the Bible that the Christians have to do

00:45:20--> 00:45:28

one of three, one of three chant one of three things, option number one, something is in there, that is also in the Quran.

00:45:31--> 00:45:36

So it says worship god alone. Quran says worship Allah alone, we say,

00:45:38--> 00:45:38

Okay.

00:45:40--> 00:45:43

Or there's something in there, which goes against the Quran.

00:45:45--> 00:45:57

In the Bible, it says that you're used to drink alcohol and get drunk. Is that true? No. Because the Quran tells us that it's not true. So we say, No.

00:45:58--> 00:46:03

What about things that are mentioned that the Quran doesn't say anything about? We don't know.

00:46:05--> 00:46:07

What do we say then? Do we say yes or no?

00:46:10--> 00:46:27

Yes, we believe or no, don't believe so the things that are in those early books that agree with the Quran, we believe in them. The things that are in those books that don't agree with the Quran? We don't agree with them. What about the things that we don't know about?

00:46:33--> 00:46:36

Okay, good idea. We don't agree with them. Okay, but we don't know.

00:46:39--> 00:46:40

So we agree with them.

00:46:41--> 00:46:42

We don't agree with them.

00:46:43--> 00:46:44

We don't agree with them.

00:46:47--> 00:46:50

We don't agree with them. anyone think we agree with them?

00:46:54--> 00:46:55

Okay, all of you are wrong.

00:46:57--> 00:47:00

Now, does anyone think that we don't agree, we do agree with them.

00:47:01--> 00:47:02

Okay, you're still wrong.

00:47:08--> 00:47:21

With this, another trick question? was the answer. Allah knows best. We don't agree. And we don't disagree. We just keep quiet and say Allah knows best.

00:47:22--> 00:47:34

Allah knows best. Because those books originally came from Allah, so originally did contain the truth. So maybe this is true. Maybe it's not true. Allah knows best.

00:47:38--> 00:47:40

every prophet that came,

00:47:41--> 00:47:52

every prophet that came their message had an expiry date. You know, when you go to the shops and you buy food, it has an expiry date, right?

00:47:53--> 00:47:58

Has a date that says, I sit down after this date, it's going to go back.

00:48:00--> 00:48:15

every prophet had a people and every prophet had an end time, a time when the message would finish. Okay. For example, who were the people of Moosa? What do we call the people of Musa

00:48:16--> 00:48:19

the people that Moosa preached to

00:48:21--> 00:48:22

Benny?

00:48:24--> 00:48:36

Benny Israelite in the children of Israel, Bani Israel, who is Israel By the way, not Israel, the country who is Israel? Who Who? Who is Israel?

00:48:44--> 00:48:46

Not quite great. You're very close. You're very close.

00:48:48--> 00:48:49

Yeah, cool.

00:48:50--> 00:49:01

Yeah, cool. This is why Israel is the name of yaku. Benny is thrown in, or the children of yaku Yaqoob children, how many children

00:49:03--> 00:49:06

everyone should get this right. How many children

00:49:09--> 00:49:10

give one more, add one more.

00:49:12--> 00:49:34

add one more again. 12 Very good. 12 Mashallah. 12, the 12 children. Those were the people of Moosa did more so go and preach to someone else. Did he say to Bani Israel, hold on guys, give me five minutes. I'm going over there to tell them. No he did. He kept his message to those people.

00:49:36--> 00:49:37

And when did his message

00:49:40--> 00:49:41

finish?

00:49:43--> 00:49:59

It finished. In a way you can say when Isa came when the other prophet the next Prophet came the other prophets they still use the same message until Isa and Isa he brought the Injeel the gospel, the new message from Allah azza wa jal

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

So we had an end date and end time, and it was limited. Now the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam did his message. First of all, what was the end of his message? was about how long 23 years, right? They then that was it.

00:50:23--> 00:50:26

It's another trick question, it has no end

00:50:27--> 00:50:48

that it is the last message and the last message has no end date. That means there is no new message coming. There is no new prophet coming. There is no update coming there is no version 2.0 coming this message that is what you have. And this message, which people was it for?

00:50:49--> 00:50:53

It was for the people of the Arabian Peninsula, right people of Makkah and Medina.

00:50:58--> 00:51:00

What is the matter with me today?

00:51:02--> 00:51:03

I love as best I love as best as

00:51:05--> 00:51:07

it was for everybody.

00:51:09--> 00:51:14

It was for every human being and not just every human being, even the jinn.

00:51:15--> 00:51:28

Every single human being and every single gene, this message was for all of them. It wasn't for Benny fool. And this Benny or that Danny, it was for all of them.

00:51:29--> 00:51:46

It was for everyone. So there's two things that are really important about this message. Number one, it's never going to end it's the last message, and it's never going to have another message. There is no more message coming afterwards. And number two,

00:51:48--> 00:51:53

it's for everybody. All the other messages were just for,

00:51:54--> 00:51:59

for some people, right? This message is for everybody.

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

So is Islam a religion for the people in Arabia? No. Is it a religion for the people in Southeast Asia? No. Is it a religion for people in North Africa? No. It's a religion for everybody. Everywhere. It's a religion for every body, everywhere?

00:52:29--> 00:52:32

And is there going to be a new version? A new prophet?

00:52:34--> 00:52:48

A new scripture? No. So this last message and last prophet in must have a really special quality. What would that special quality be?

00:52:51--> 00:53:07

It must be special. Why? Why is it I mean, it's special because it's going to last forever. And it's going to last until the end of time. And it's for every one in the whole world everywhere. So it must have something really special about it. And that special thing is

00:53:11--> 00:53:20

it's preserved. It's being kept safe, who kept the message of Islam safe?

00:53:22--> 00:53:26

who promised to keep the message of a lot of Islam safe?

00:53:34--> 00:53:37

Allah Mashallah very good.

00:53:38--> 00:53:52

In Nash, known as zelina, Vic rahua, in hoolahan, recent down this message, and we will keep it safe. So this message of Islam is going to be kept safe,

00:53:53--> 00:54:08

is going to be kept safe. Beautiful. So now we know that the Prophet Mohammed Salim was the last prophet, we know the basics of his message, which was worship Allah, you have no God worthy of worship except Him

00:54:10--> 00:54:19

and follow the prophets. We know this message. Okay. And we know that it had no expiry date. And we know that it's for everybody, everywhere.

00:54:21--> 00:54:40

So let me ask you a question. What do you know? And it's my one, it's a big question was my last question for the class. So it takes a little while to come up with my last part of my question. And it is, what do you know about the Prophet Muhammad? sallallahu alayhi wasallam. First of all, what was his name?

00:54:42--> 00:54:43

I don't want you to say Mohammed,

00:54:45--> 00:54:47

what was the name

00:54:48--> 00:54:52

and I'm going to ask everyone and I'm going to see who can get the furthest

00:54:53--> 00:54:54

along

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

one

00:54:59--> 00:54:59

or the other

00:55:00--> 00:55:06

different names like like Al Mustafa, the chosen one and so on, but I want his name I want his normal name.

00:55:07--> 00:55:12

Mohammed, Abdullah Abdullah Abdullah Abdullah multigrip

00:55:14--> 00:55:15

ignore Hashem.

00:55:16--> 00:55:22

No Abdi manuf. anyone got any further? We got five.

00:55:24--> 00:55:26

Anyone can go anyone any further.

00:55:32--> 00:55:42

Okay, let's learn five today. And then we can start as we go in our sera class we can learn more. Mohammed, son of Abdullah,

00:55:44--> 00:55:47

son of Abdul Mutallab

00:55:48--> 00:55:51

son of Hashem,

00:55:52--> 00:55:55

son of abdomen F,

00:55:56--> 00:55:58

son of Jose.

00:56:00--> 00:56:10

Mohamed, son of Abdullah, son of Abdulmutallab son of Hashem.

00:56:12--> 00:56:23

So, the first father is a doula. The second one is Abdulmutallab. The third one is Hashem. The fourth one is our dmrf. And the fifth one is crusades. Okay.

00:56:25--> 00:56:26

That makes for us.

00:56:27--> 00:56:28

Five

00:56:29--> 00:56:30

that makes for us.

00:56:32--> 00:56:32

Five

00:56:34--> 00:56:37

What else do you know about the Prophet Mohammed Salah, love it he was in.

00:56:41--> 00:56:43

He was the last prophet. Very good, excellent.

00:56:45--> 00:56:53

He was born and Melfi in the year of the elephant. What year of the elephant?

00:56:56--> 00:57:06

What do we mean the year of the elephant? There's some like I mean, I've heard people talk the you know, these different cultures, their Chinese years have names of animals and things. What year of the elephant

00:57:13--> 00:57:21

abraha wanted to destroy the cat ba with an army of elephants. And Allah destroyed it and which sorta did Allah Tell us about it in?

00:57:23--> 00:57:25

Or come away the people in my Korean class? Yes.

00:57:26--> 00:57:54

So that will feel Elementor like a file or bouquet, the US have been filled? Don't you see how your Lord dealt with the army of the elephant. And that was when the Prophet size alone was born. Brilliant. We're going to stop the class there. And what we're going to do is this next class, we are going to learn about the life of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam today we understood who the Prophet Mohammed is in a very general way.

00:57:55--> 00:58:41

We understood a little bit about him a couple more things I want to add. First of all, I want to add that the prophets and the messengers, they were the best of the people.
