00:00:00--> 00:00:00

Oh

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

Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:38--> 00:00:43

I didn't hear the response Subhanallah Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

So what you got to London?

00:00:49--> 00:00:52

Can we try one more time? Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:55--> 00:01:28

wake us up of it masala welcome Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Robbie Shockley, Saudi uncle Emery a lot that Emily Sani of Paulo Cali. So the Hanukkah La La Mulana Illa Allah antenna in Naka, Anta Alima Hakeem, my dear respected Brothers and Sisters in Islam, may Allah bless you reward you and make every minute you attend. In sha Allah, Allah in the scale of your good deeds, I mean, our blood I mean,

00:01:29--> 00:01:30

now as we know,

00:01:32--> 00:02:23

Allah subhanho wa Taala chose Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be the final messenger. But he didn't only choose Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he also chose the Companions around him. He also chose his family members around him, the people who aided him to deliver the message. And one of them is I ishara, the Allah Alibaba before that. Just to give you an idea about how important this generation was, of the liveness old or the Allah Allah once spoke about the companion saying, men can understand and fully Astana The man called met, anyone wanted to follow a path that is inshallah leading to Jannah let him follow the path of those who pass away. Those who passed away

00:02:24--> 00:02:34

who like us, Harbin Dube, he was referring to the companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he goes on to list the qualities

00:02:35--> 00:03:07

that they were the best of mankind. Mr. Khan Licola Nirbhay just as the prophets Allah Allah Salem mentioned earlier Hi Lunas, Courtney. The best of people are my generation, then the one to follow and then the one to follow. One of those generations is a shot of the Allah Allah Allah describing the manners of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as Ken Hulagu Al Quran.

00:03:08--> 00:03:33

The manners of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were the Quran. If you wanted to understand the Quran, look into the lifestyle of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was a walking Quran. Now we maybe we've heard this narration many times before. But perhaps we didn't ask ourselves the question.

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

What were these manners? Exactly?

00:03:37--> 00:04:11

What were these manners? Exactly? And this, what I wanted to share with you in sha Allah. And why is that important? Because Allah told us in the Quran, that indeed in the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lies the perfect model for you to follow. How many of you here have observed some people who are fascinated about some celebrities out there? actors, actresses, singers footballers? Anyone? Have you seen people have that you guys don't see people

00:04:12--> 00:04:37

like me try to respond how many people have seen others not huge. All Ayatollah were all angels the Al Hamdulillah you've seen others fascinated about actors and actresses and footballers raise your hand no one's gonna judge you inshallah. Barak Allah V come and probably you've seen them wearing like them, cutting their hair like them, right? Following the fashions and whatnot.

00:04:38--> 00:05:00

But Allah is telling us if you really want it to end up in sha Allah, Allah with the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam in Jana, you must behave like him in dunya. That's the criteria. And this is why it is very important to understand his manners, his attitudes, his ethics, because Islam is not just

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

instead of praying five times a day, Islam is not about not only about fasting during the month of Ramadan, Islam is not only about giving the care Islam is not only about those five pillars these are the foundations of the deen but not the entire building.

00:05:18--> 00:05:41

These are the foundations the pillars of the deen the prophets Allah Allah Allah Samson booni al Islam, Allah humps, and I want you to pay attention to my hands gesture is very, very important is that he sent Islam. Islam has been established upon five pillars. Here is Islam. And here are the five pillars. They are separate.

00:05:42--> 00:06:30

The five pillars are the foundations the more you strengthen them, the more you're building become strong. And part of that building is perfecting our manners. In fact, the prophets Allah Allah Allah Salah mentioned in one of his earlier a hadith, he said Inanna boys to Leotta me Mama caramel o'clock, I had been sent to perfect manners, all the messengers of Allah, all the prophets of Allah were sent for one reason and that is to convey the message of worshipping. Number two, Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran Welaka bafna If you could live on material rosulip and our Buddha Allah, wa determinable tahu that we have sent to every nation, a messenger

00:06:30--> 00:06:50

with the message, worship Allah and stay away from worshipping any other deities. This was the main purpose why messengers will send to mankind but Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given an extra mission to fulfill and that is perfecting our manners,

00:06:51--> 00:07:38

perfecting our manners, and that's why you see it in the Quran. Like in the salata, tan ha Anil fascia y'all monger that Salah prevents a person from falling into shameful activities, which means an act of worship like salah, which is our move to Dean or Mr. Dean, the pillar the backbone of the deen is Salah, as mentioned by the Prophet SAW Salem, but its main purpose is to perfect your manners so that you don't fall into shameful activities and so on and so forth. So manners are absolutely essential. Now, due to the time limitation that I have, I have only selected three of those manners in sha Allah doll that perhaps we have heard about the many times but maybe you are

00:07:38--> 00:07:52

still lacking perfecting them in the law. The first on the list and I hope that you're taking notes I'm sure if you're a sister most likely are taking notes. If you are a brother in law he were in LA he Rajon?

00:07:54--> 00:07:58

Because they are mashallah they have good memories, Bokeria Muslims.

00:08:00--> 00:08:05

The first is the manner of truthfulness,

00:08:06--> 00:08:10

the manner of honesty, transparency,

00:08:12--> 00:08:27

and how the Prophet SAW Selim was titled by his enemies, prior to Islam as I saw the I mean, the truthful, the trustworthy that were these were he started prior to Islam.

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

And most likely, this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala selected him to deliver his message, because the message required honesty required a man to deliver it exactly as it is, as it has been revealed. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam and if you looked at the Quran,

00:08:48--> 00:09:45

if you look at the Quran, and the description of other prophets, you will see Allah subhanaw taala saying, for example, was going to feel kita being ever wrong Hema in Ghana suit the Kenobi and relate the story of Ibrahim alayhi salam, indeed he was a truthful man and he was a prophet. Speaking about Idris Ali salaam, Allah subhanho wa Taala said the same thing about him word for for word, what chlorophyll Kitabi degrees in Ghana so the NABI mentioned the book The Story of Greece indeed he was a truthful man, and a prophet. And when Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned Ismail Alayhis Salam, the son of Ibrahim, he said what what Corfield kita Abbey's Nyla in Ghana saw these

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

are all suelen Obeah and relate in the book the story of his mind, Allah is Salam indeed he was truthful to His promises, and he was a messenger and a prophet. He grew up

00:10:00--> 00:10:28

up in a household that encourage honesty and truthfulness, that's why he became truthful as well. Subhanallah maybe some of you relate to what I'm about to say. Back in the days, maybe your little boy sitting or little sister sitting in your home and the phone rang and you pick the phone and just as you pick the phone your father looked at you and say if Uncle Omar tell him I'm asleep

00:10:31--> 00:10:34

you love that means it happened.

00:10:35--> 00:10:40

And so you you pick up the phone you see it's uncle Omar sorry, my Baba asleep.

00:10:41--> 00:10:43

But let him call me later.

00:10:44--> 00:10:59

And you that the lies continue Who taught you to lie now in Allah Allah here in LA Rajon, but Allah mentioned that Ibrahim alayhi salam was a truthful, truthful man. That's why the production was a truthful man is smile Ali Salam.

00:11:01--> 00:11:38

And this is something that the prophets Allah Allah, Allah wa salam made it a criteria, one of the criteria for us to enter Jannah Believe it or not, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I like Campbell's Soup. I commend you to be truthful. faintness Sitka? Yeah, dill bourbon. We're in Albuera Yeah, the eel Jana. I commend you to be truthful for truthfulness leads to righteousness and righteousness leads to Jana Allahu Akbar. And then he warned us against the opposite what uh, yeah, Kamal Kazim and beware of lying.

00:11:40--> 00:11:50

Beware of lying for lies leads to wickedness. The more you lie the more you become skillful liar will actually start lying on your feet.

00:11:51--> 00:11:56

Without even thinking unconsciously become lying liar. Well, I had to biller

00:11:57--> 00:12:26

and wicked this leads to hellfire, this word the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned, remember my brothers and sisters and lies, doesn't have colors. So there is no white lie, and a black lie and a purple lie and a pink lie. Lie is a lie. There are only three conditions in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam allowed a little bit of misinformation when your life is in danger.

00:12:27--> 00:12:35

Or when your country is in danger you may alter a few misinformation to protect yourself protect your family and so on.

00:12:36--> 00:12:56

When you are reconciling between two people who are not living on good terms, you say you know what libre that loves you so much and maybe brother Ahmed hates him so much. So he tried to reconcile to milk the hearts so that they can get back on track. This is allowed and the third one which is my favorite is to lie to your wife

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

but don't get me wrong

00:13:00--> 00:13:41

that doesn't mean you do something haram outside and come a light or no no no, but rather make her feel good about herself. Like you know you get up in the morning and you know our sisters in the morning at home they are very comfortable no hijab, you see mashallah the hair is going everywhere, like the African map. Yeah, and if they have this mascara and whatnot, it bleeds in the morning and in LA, he went to LA Joan, like instead of looking at an essay mashallah say oh, we live in a shutdown and but No, don't say that. Do not say that. But rather look at her as a mashallah You're the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. You're a liar, but that's okay. That's a good one. Actually

00:13:41--> 00:13:45

the process and say, This is not a lie, but don't exaggerate you. And I'm trying

00:13:46--> 00:13:53

to add a little bit of humor but don't exaggerate. Otherwise she wouldn't believe you also, she'd say you're a big liar. May Allah protect the Solium.

00:13:55--> 00:14:06

But the bottom line is my brothers and sisters Be careful because the opposite of the truthfulness that we talked about, is listed by the process LM as a sign of hypocrisy.

00:14:07--> 00:14:20

The Prophet SAW said I Atal Munna Salah if you wanted to identify a hypocrite, look for three signs. The first on the list is hard data Kedah. When he speaks you ought to realize

00:14:21--> 00:14:59

why He then left and when he promises he breaks those promises were either to Minahan and when he is entrusted with something he betray those trusts, may Allah protect us all. So be careful. Lying could lead you to fall into this category of hypocrites Allah, Allah, may Allah Subhana Allah protect us all. Some people may ask that how can we actually develop this habit of being truthful? Well, Allah told us in the Quran, yeah. A human levena duckula Hakuna Oh ma saw the lien all you who believe my

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

Brothers my Sisters in Islam when you hear the words yeah you are Lavina man who pay extra attention because Allah is addressing you or you who believe all those who said that Allah is our Lord and Muhammad is his messenger Allah is calling on you telling you that after the statement in the Quran make it your homework. After any statement yeah you are Latina man, whatever comes after it is either a command for you to follow or a prohibition for you to stay away from in the context of this ayah Allah subhanaw taala is commanding you to surround yourself with the truthful if you want it to be one of them. Because the prophets Allah Allah Allah or Salah mentioned al murder Alma Alma Allah,

00:15:46--> 00:16:03

Dini kalila, or Raju, Allah, Dini Khalili, a person is inclined to follow the religion or the way of life of his friend. Show me who your friends are. And I will tell you who you are, most likely you will follow your trades. So may Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:16:05--> 00:16:17

Help us in sha Allah and assist us to always have a truthful tongue, I mean, our blasphemy. The second manner that I want to share with you in sha Allah, Allah Allah is the manner of humility, humbleness,

00:16:18--> 00:17:01

the prophets, Allah Allah Allah Salah mentioned in Allah I will highlight more Certainly Allah revealed to me that you should humble yourself so that no one oppresses the other. No one boast about anything that he possessed or he owns. Always give the credit. So Allah subhanaw taala, the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam said that if you humble yourself like this, and he started lower his farm until it was grounded, it was leveled with the ground, Allah will elevate him like that. And he started raising up his farm up facing upwards to the sky. If you want it to be in Alfredo Silla Allah my brothers and sisters in STEM and let me see some hands who wanted to be in

00:17:01--> 00:17:05

oil for those some people are not interested in and for those

00:17:07--> 00:17:30

everybody wants to be in the highest level in in Jannah basalite Allah, humble yourself go down to earth, that's the condition. This is the condition manteau the Adi Allah He Rafa Allah, the Prophet SAW Selim mentioned in another narration, whosoever humbles himself before Allah, Allah will innovate that person in status in the light on

00:17:32--> 00:17:42

Allah subhanaw taala told us in Surah to look man, look, man was advising his son, while time she fell out of the Mara Ha, no Walk on Earth as if you own it.

00:17:44--> 00:17:54

And then he very beautiful example, you will not create a hole on ground walking like that arrogantly Allah to Allah and you will never reach the mountains in height.

00:17:55--> 00:18:00

So lower your wings of humility while walking on Earth. Don't try to show off the villa.

00:18:01--> 00:18:16

And usually, humility is explained or defined as when an advice is given to you. And it is true, take it no matter who gave it to you, doesn't matter

00:18:18--> 00:18:31

and never looked down upon others because that is the definition of arrogance the opposite. So as you can see, the Prophet SAW Salem didn't only teach us the good traits but he warned us from its opposite.

00:18:33--> 00:18:38

Very precise message Islam is a beautiful religion my brothers and sisters will lie.

00:18:39--> 00:18:50

The prophets Allah Allah said and told us be careful because if you have an atom weight of a mustard seed in your heart of arrogance, you will not enter Jannah

00:18:51--> 00:19:06

that's what our beloved Prophet Mohammed Salah Alia Salah mentioned so humble yourself and some may ask again how can we develop this habit my brothers will lie there's one advice that one of my mache had given me he says spend time

00:19:07--> 00:19:56

with those who are less fortunate than you spend quality time with them. Show interest about the lives because I tell you something, if someone of authority someone who fame someone of wealth came and sat next to you, you will prepare your 10,000 selfies with that person because you wanted to tell everyone that you were with that individual. But if someone is just on the side Subhanallah and Alvine in Allah your head will RB the Takashi n k l cafe. Allah subhanaw taala loves the slave who is righteous having Taqwa of Allah consciousness of Allah, who is pure and he is hidden. He doesn't like to show off. Spend quality time with those who are less fortunate than you. And remember one

00:19:56--> 00:19:57

thing

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

remember your orange

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

Do my brothers and sisters in Stan, fairly young Laurel in San Omi, my Holy, holy Tom him

00:20:10--> 00:20:57

in the field, let mankind observe from what exactly what substance from what substance they were created. And then Allah gave the answer. You are created from a fluid that was injected from between your bones, your back bones, that's who you are such a drop of water that if it fell on any of our garments, it would be considered impure. That's who we are my brothers and sisters in Islam. How could we now after Allah had granted us intellect, health, beauty, and everything else that we never even asked for? We start looking down upon others, just because I'm different. Just because I'm, you know, from that country or that country just because of my color just because of my background, how

00:20:57--> 00:21:07

could you look down upon others. So remember your origin, and you will be able to humble yourself, the third quality that I'm having, I don't have time oh, by the way.

00:21:09--> 00:21:18

The third quality that I'm having to share with you in sha Allah, Allah Allah is the quality of, or the manner of forgiveness.

00:21:19--> 00:21:26

Now by show of hands, my brothers, my sisters in Islam, how many of you here would love

00:21:27--> 00:21:36

when they meet Allah Subhana Allah on the Day of Judgment, would love to hear the words, your sins are wiped out?

00:21:39--> 00:22:05

You yourself will be surprised, right? Like, oh, my God, I thought that I'm doing today. Yeah. If you wanted all your sins to be forgiven on the Day of Judgment, my brothers and sisters and Stan, you have to forgive others. Another key to Jana is to let go of other people's mistakes, because let's be honest, we're also full of misery. We're also full of history, right?

00:22:06--> 00:22:17

And we wanted Allah to forgive us and let go of our mistakes. So you have an opportunity today to forgive others. Look, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned,

00:22:18--> 00:22:55

or the story of a man who entered the masjid and the Prophet SAW Selim pointed at him, and he said, A man from Jana is going to come in, he's going to enter the masjid. And the Companions didn't even recognize the man and Abdullah of Nam, rhodiola. And OMA, you went to him later on, and he said, I'm a stranger, I'm not from here. Can you accommodate me in your home for three days, the man accepted and he accommodated him. After the third day he confessed to him, he told him the truth. Listen, I am from here but the prophets Allah Allah, Allah wa sallam said that you are from Jana, and I just wanted to know what you're doing. What's your secret?

00:22:56--> 00:23:14

And I spent three days here, I didn't see anything different. In fact, we are doing even more acceptable death. So the man said, I'm no special. I'm not doing anything extra. Except here's the key my brothers and sisters, I do not go to bed every night, except that I forgive everyone. Lahu Akbar.

00:23:15--> 00:23:39

And this is what I what I really wanted to achieve in this conference. Believe it or not, Everyone comes here with an intention in mind. One of my intention in this very talk is to see you to see you in actual reality, forgiving others. So here's the deal. Can we all take our cell phones out? Smilla.

00:23:40--> 00:24:06

Now, you may follow the instructions to an extent. Yeah. So I want you to follow one step at a time until the end in sha Allah. And once they give you the final instruction, it is all up to you to either follow or leave it aside. Is that okay, deal? Can you shout back at me? Okay. Yes, Bismillah R Rahman so takeouts Can you can you show me Stephens show me your cell phones. Anyone who doesn't have a cell phone by the way?

00:24:07--> 00:24:20

Anyone doesn't have little little one muscle cell phone dropped in the Lila who Anna Hollis pick it up? Masala. So you guys use social media as well. Use social media. Anyone hear on tick tock?

00:24:22--> 00:24:25

Tick tock. When he five in London?

00:24:27--> 00:24:59

Instagram, I mean Instagram. Anyone? Instagram, okay. All right, take out your cell phones. Come on. Open your index, your index your contact list. Open it. Now I want you to scroll down and see that person that you've not been talking to for a long time. I want you to locate that person that you have quarreled with in the past whether that person is your brother, your cousin, your aunt, your uncle, your wife, your husband, your children, whoever that person is your colleague

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

At work, I want you to locate his name or her name. Now that person must be halal by the way. Be careful, don't don't use the Haram person. Yeah. Hello brother or sisters.

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

Now you located the person,

00:25:15--> 00:25:17

open a text message,

00:25:18--> 00:25:37

open a text message to that particular individual and tell him listen up. I love you for the sake of Allah. And whatever happens already gun if I was wrong, I'm sorry, humble yourself and apologize when you realize that you are wrong.

00:25:39--> 00:25:52

If I was wrong, if I harmed you, if I wronged you, if I angered you, if I annoyed you, if I did anything that stepped on your ego or whatever else, I apologize, and if you were wrong,

00:25:53--> 00:25:56

and if you hurt me, I forgive you.

00:25:59--> 00:26:40

Now you know the trick, if you want to continue and send the message, send the message. And if you want to give me a confirmation, thumbs up just to feel like Allah subhanaw taala fulfilled I so much Allah, Allah fulfill that intention, my heart Alhamdulillah if you want to make me happy, just give me thumbs up, I would know that you have actually sent a text message to someone who you didn't talk to for a long time because of trivial issues. Forgiveness, forgive each other. My brothers and sisters and Stan Wallah, he one of the things that I will never forget is the day where I met one of my uncles, and I conveyed to him the message that one of our close friends who actually we

00:26:40--> 00:26:54

considered as another uncle, or he was not blood related, had passed away. And what I heard from that uncle in particular, was shocking to me as a young boy, he said Suppan Allah, He died angry with me.

00:26:55--> 00:26:58

He died before I even asked Him to forgive me.

00:26:59--> 00:27:11

And now he went to his janazah he prayed for him, he visited his grave. Why can't we do that? Why can't we visit each other and love each other and attend on each other need before we depart this dunya

00:27:13--> 00:27:53

Ghana Hello. And his manners where the Quran and Allah subhanaw taala is commending us in the Quran to forgive each other because this is one of the best thing we can do before we depart. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, my time is up. But I wanted to do something before I leave in sha Allah to Allah. So can I have your attention? I'm going to shout to the top about something that we all feel we all yearn to see in our lifetime, the Israelite Allah. And that is a shout out to our brothers and sisters in Philistine in Palestine. A big shout out to the brothers and sisters in Reza, those people who have taught us what Iman and resilience looked like.

00:27:54--> 00:28:11

If you want to know what Eman is, look at the mother who's saying Alhamdulillah all my kids died Alhamdulillah Allah, I'm expecting that award from you. We haven't seen that. We don't expect that to happen to us. We can't even imagine or Fathom losing all our children at once.

00:28:13--> 00:28:38

So let's make dua for them. May Allah subhanaw taala grant more patience. And may Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant the martyrs the highest levels in Jannah May Allah subhanaw taala heal the wounds and the injuries that they went through. May Allah subhanho wa Taala return and misery The locks are in the hands of those who deserve it. I mean your anatomy and before anything else, Free Free Palestine

00:28:41--> 00:28:47

London you need to wake up Allah wala ad to come on there. How can we free Feldstein like this?

00:28:48--> 00:28:50

Zach Lowe hi nice was lovely having spent time with you. Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
