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

Hello,

00:00:07--> 00:00:08

I'm Christina

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

Mohammedan

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

Allahumma salli ala Muhammad, Muhammad canossa Lake

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

Amita muddied

00:00:29--> 00:00:49

by the law, or praise due to Oman, his praise and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam family, his companions and his followers until the day of judgment, I believe the only one worthy of worship, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his last and final messenger.

00:00:51--> 00:01:05

Madiba sisters, we as Muslims, we all know that the key to snap is this testimonial that I just stated to you, that you bear witness to the laws, the only one worth your fortune. And

00:01:06--> 00:01:25

he was in his last and final message. Two very common knowledge among every Muslim. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the Messiah, the true messenger of Islam. He was sent to all humanity as almost a kind of what the other says in Surah Saba one.

00:01:35--> 00:01:45

We have not seen Dr. Mohamad except a worker and a carrier for lactating to all human beings to all humanity. One,

00:01:49--> 00:01:56

Lila and me, we have not seen you but a mercy to all mankind and sort of an MBA.

00:01:58--> 00:02:03

And you will see so many verses, that shows us that the prophets are somewhat similar

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

to,

00:02:07--> 00:02:17

to the people who remember 1400 years ago, and the people who are living today and those who will come tomorrow, he's a messenger for all of them.

00:02:18--> 00:02:21

Allah Subhana Allah said, he, I will levy

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

any help Danny

00:02:28--> 00:02:34

de Nikolay, you have sent this message to the true religion. So his religion that messenger

00:02:36--> 00:02:40

work will be clearly recognize that it is the truth

00:02:42--> 00:03:03

compared to any other ideologies, or any other message out there. Even if this is something we'll be hated by the disbelievers. But no matter how much he hates the messenger, no matter how much we try to change the message of Muhammad, it will still remain very clear, easy to be recognized.

00:03:05--> 00:03:47

And I think the question that I have today, for myself and my children and my family and my community, and those who I interact with them in a daily basis, we're all take. It's written down for us with Mohammed Salim is the messenger of Islam. Yes, we know that. But if someone asks you, how can you prove that for me? How would I know that he was the messenger of Islam? How would I know today I haven't seen any one of his tangible miracles. And I mean by that I haven't seen the sport of the moon. I haven't seen him when he is bringing water out of the drywall these kind of miracles are met with

00:03:48--> 00:04:27

how a simple person today. Well, you know what, I'm sure that so many of us believe in llama as a messenger of Allah. But when you start a little bit question that person and then when I when when so many of our young community members go to college to study some courses or meet even other people. You just question them a little bit. You just go beyond the SERPs. You just dig deep a little bit, you'll find that most of us have a very, very thin crust that you can easily integrate and go through it and break it, unfortunately.

00:04:28--> 00:04:59

So I think it's very important for us to make sure that our either our, our faith is well founded in the heart. And by the way, faith is founded on the heart and so many different ways. It's not a one way and no one can say that logic only what stablished faith in the heart. That's not true. Not everybody is a logical person. Some people are more emotional than just using the logic of straight up so my same people they might the faith in established in the art

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

Through emotion.

00:05:02--> 00:05:15

And same people, the logic was established off the man were more, or some people, they just feel that they know that this is the truth, you know, I'm belonging to ceremony. So he didn't debate the process

00:05:24--> 00:05:25

in North America.

00:05:28--> 00:06:01

He said Your face is not a face to face. And I know that you're not alone, right? So if you are a person who never say a lot, you must be saying the truth. And that was enough to establish faith in his heart. But not everybody had that. Other people ask questions, other people, it took them years, or hours to figure that out. So one of the things that I would like to share with you today as some of the evidence, and the signal the prophet SAW Selim, established to make sure that our faith

00:06:03--> 00:06:09

is based in a corrupt and solid deep Foundation, unshakable.

00:06:15--> 00:06:19

This is a call for the believers who you believe

00:06:24--> 00:06:29

believe in Allah and His messenger. So we just call him a believer.

00:06:30--> 00:06:34

But he's still out ask them to believe in a oneness messenger.

00:06:36--> 00:06:42

Which it means that you believe in your faith should be very well stuff very well founded in your heart.

00:06:44--> 00:06:52

I was a candidate the other evening have taken a covenant from the prophets and the messengers before Muhammad Sallallahu.

00:06:54--> 00:06:55

wasallam would be

00:06:57--> 00:07:01

allowed simply as a Muslim during their time, they must believe in him.

00:07:03--> 00:07:06

They must believe in him as a sense of kindness.

00:07:25--> 00:07:26

Let me know.

00:07:43--> 00:07:50

Nina Shaggy. so beautifully said, I was saying to the, to the messenger,

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

that

00:07:53--> 00:08:13

I've taken covenant from the messengers, after you give them the book. And after we give them the message, the wisdom, the teaching, that they're going to teach the people. He said, after I give you all this, then a messenger will be sent in your time during your time.

00:08:14--> 00:08:33

And that messenger has massive goals long side with what you teaching. It's so interesting. Establishing one of the proof that Mohammed is a true prophet than the messenger of Muhammad is exactly similar to the messenger flowerpot. Same, the same.

00:08:34--> 00:08:50

The same, the same principles, the same outlines are exactly the same. Are you going to believe and follow Him? They said Yes, we will. Then he said should be witness over that cabinet, because I'm witnessing that as well.

00:08:52--> 00:09:08

Brothers and sisters, our amygdala told us that during the Prophet Muhammad was a long time, the rich people have seen these signs clearly that he is a prophet, and he is the messenger of his Lord, because they have done the turn away. They hide the truth. And Medina

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

October

00:09:17--> 00:09:17

5,

00:09:25--> 00:09:29

they have cliffsides in the car and in

00:09:30--> 00:09:36

the book of Jesus in the book of Moses, selling in giving the blood of the coming of

00:09:38--> 00:09:56

the Prophet Muhammad Salah. And I'm not today going into these verses that still exists in the Old Testament. And in the New Testament, speaking about the apartments are solid they come in with a profit or a man who speak the same word of Jesus and He will be he will appear in

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

the land of Arabia and he will basically

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

I'm not going to even call from this verse, because you might see people who interpret it in a different way see Christian scholars today. So we it's not clearly that it is the poverty and so forth.

00:10:14--> 00:10:28

But you know what I would like to see how itself hold on stablish this fact that Muhammad is the Messenger of Islam. And the first thing you'll come across how

00:10:30--> 00:10:38

told us that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, his miracle was not just something happened in the past, it's not like Jesus used to raise the bed,

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

or

00:10:42--> 00:11:06

the ocean or the the sea. It's not like this kind of brought home. Some of this work is seen and witnessed by a number of people know, the prophets are sometimes said, every prophet and messenger was giving a massive and a miracle that she has time for his own people. But I was sent to all the time to overcome sin to all humanity.

00:11:07--> 00:11:11

And I was given a miracle that will remain until the end.

00:11:12--> 00:11:17

So his no COVID is one of the proofs of his profits. Some of them would remain

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

an hour in New York.

00:11:21--> 00:11:24

I was given the holy book, which is

00:11:30--> 00:11:39

I work how Allah in this book established this far by saying stating the follow up, and sort of an uncovered calasparra set.

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

One,

00:11:51--> 00:12:21

yo, yo, Mohamed, you have lived among them for years, you don't know how to write, you don't know how to read. You are we never came up with anything similar to that. You never seen a single line of poetry. He lived in an era in a time. He has the purest tongue in Arabic. And still he never said a single line of poetry. Even the lines that he called in poetry, he wrote, it was not a complete line, which

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

kind of makes a

00:12:25--> 00:12:27

living, hacker I'm

00:12:29--> 00:12:30

not going

00:12:32--> 00:12:53

to show you 100% that this map is command. Language is a macro thing. It's a monologue. It's just something natural. He doesn't naturally say poetry. sallallahu wasallam. So this man lived among for us, he never recited something like that. question.

00:12:55--> 00:13:13

The question would be, if you wrote this book on his own, do you think when you write a book you need to practice you need to do some practice drafts. He never did anything like that for 40 years, he never came up with any passages, even the practices never depth.

00:13:14--> 00:13:22

You can just became the top from the first time it's impossible. Those who are going to

00:13:23--> 00:13:30

look at your basically words of poetry two years ago, or two years ago, six months ago, and now you see,

00:13:32--> 00:13:40

you know, I read a lot of books and in Arabic with a lot of books that's written over a long period of time, like, for example,

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

over 10 years, but when

00:13:45--> 00:13:56

you look at the first chapter, second chapter, you look at the first three vowels in one community will spend 20 pages 15 pages, look at the last

00:13:57--> 00:14:07

chapter of say Makati after 20 years, he will write in a very different style that is short, very concise, very different style,

00:14:08--> 00:14:10

his style change over the course of the year, but

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

it's a so that's one.

00:14:15--> 00:14:16

One sort of like

00:14:18--> 00:14:36

was the first thing to review. And the same sort of that sort of was revealed later on before he dropped later on after he migrated to Medina, over the course of 15 years, same style, same level, same power, same what not

00:14:37--> 00:14:46

the sort of ultimate resume reveal in year one after he became a profit equal to the one that revealed 23 years later on.

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

It came to think that it alone can resign this book in this one, no difference and he never said never practice this before. This is something cannot be done by him.

00:15:01--> 00:15:01

He said,

00:15:17--> 00:15:28

can't you think I spend years with you? Before this time when I came up with the possum sympathies apart, I spent years with you. I never claimed anything like that.

00:15:29--> 00:15:31

But what's even more interesting,

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

you know,

00:15:34--> 00:15:37

it's a miracle and it's language and the way it's written and all those things.

00:15:39--> 00:15:50

I just want to say, on a move to the second point, which is so interesting, that he told us if you want to know this is a true profit or not, what you need to do is the following.

00:15:51--> 00:15:58

Look at this profit, and look at his message. That's all what you need to do.

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

For 334,

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

he said,

00:16:08--> 00:16:10

I asked you to do one thing.

00:16:13--> 00:16:14

Now,

00:16:18--> 00:16:20

I asked you to,

00:16:21--> 00:16:22

I told you

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

on one thing,

00:16:26--> 00:16:51

that you stand up for last set in pairs, and single, and reflect upon this man upon his message upon God calling you for, upon what is calling you for just think about, think about the similarity of his message to the messengers before to the messages before. And here, I think there is a very valid question can be asked

00:16:52--> 00:17:07

as Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and I wanted to understand this, maybe you can play let's put it as a game. We can put this to this game with someone who's ever asked you about Islam. So do you want to play a game? You asked me about now, I would like to play a game with you.

00:17:10--> 00:17:11

Ask him

00:17:13--> 00:17:16

if this note was a genuine Prophet, what do you

00:17:19--> 00:17:20

want this man could?

00:17:21--> 00:17:23

The answer would be a false prophet.

00:17:24--> 00:17:30

No matter what false part that's right, is the true prophet, a messenger of his Lord? Or he was a false prophet.

00:17:31--> 00:17:34

Okay, fine. The next question will be

00:17:35--> 00:17:46

why someone will claim that he's a prophet. What are the criteria? What are the signs? What are the descriptions of a false prophet?

00:17:47--> 00:17:53

How would you know that this is possible, why someone will take the burden of saying that I'm about

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

to put a piece of paper and said, Let's write it up. I'll tell you what most people say,

00:18:01--> 00:18:02

of power and fame.

00:18:03--> 00:18:07

Somebody claimed it is profit, you want to be famous and want to be powerful.

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

Let's examine this. Let's see what the person are looking for power and fame. The bar that he came with his best miracle, the legacy that he left behind, he says, I have nothing to do with this book. This is nothing this book from me.

00:18:27--> 00:18:48

If a false prophet, if somebody want fame, he will claim for himself, he will say this is me, this is my talent. This is my, you know, genius and this and that he's saying I know nothing, this is only on delivering the message. You know, this book is not written the book of Hamlet. This message is not known as the message of

00:18:49--> 00:18:54

this religion is not the mention of lambda, we will not call them hemudu.

00:18:57--> 00:19:12

As unfortunately, one century or like maybe even 50 years ago, you will see a lot of see a lot of people speak about a snap even in America. Not long time ago, I was in a session with, you know, a leader among

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

one of the faith leaders here and he said,

00:19:17--> 00:19:20

People believe this. I said

00:19:22--> 00:19:28

we are Muslims. He was not building a legacy for himself. for himself, some of

00:19:30--> 00:19:47

you think he was looking for power for fame. He could not stop the system for his children, for his name to be carried. As a matter of fact, he said I was given the choice between to live like a king or live like a slave and I choose to live like a slave.

00:19:51--> 00:19:54

Many can claim rights, political rights.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

Also

00:20:01--> 00:20:17

Before ever struggle, before he was kicked out of a city, living surrounded with his people, he was threatened to be killed. Before all of that he was told if you want to be the king of Arabia, which is the biggest things, and any person at that time, was saying, we're gonna imagine.

00:20:18--> 00:20:26

And he said, I don't care. That's not my role to be a king of Arabia. He was offered to be king of shots. He said, No, that's not no go.

00:20:28--> 00:20:38

Look at his lifestyle. What a person looking for fame, a bedroom of different from the desert, walk into the gathering, he will not know who is the profit.

00:20:40--> 00:20:40

incentive.

00:20:43--> 00:20:48

He will not allow someone to walk behind him. They either walk beside him or in front of him,

00:20:49--> 00:20:51

behind them like kings.

00:20:52--> 00:21:04

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, when someone come, when I come, nobody stands up for me when they come like kings do. Actually, it's not allowed in Islam, to stand up out of our into himself.

00:21:06--> 00:21:07

He said no.

00:21:13--> 00:21:14

Because

00:21:17--> 00:21:31

he doesn't have a god, he couldn't act like a king. His lifespan was far from being a king. Solomon, he said, he said, lawful money, lawful money and being rich.

00:21:33--> 00:21:41

Let me tell you the pasta salad never knew what being rich me in a materialistic mean? Meaning

00:21:43--> 00:21:44

once the solemn had

00:21:45--> 00:21:53

just maybe a few pieces of gold, after so he wrote to the house, and he took it out and distribute it. He said

00:21:58--> 00:22:01

I hate it to spend one night, one night.

00:22:03--> 00:22:04

In my house, I don't

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

know,

00:22:08--> 00:22:08

he died.

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

While he died while he he basically bought his shoe to a Jewish merchant in Medina, for a civil hence will borrow.

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

Not because there were two men or one of his companions, his seven month mark, he owns millions and millions of pieces of gold and silver.

00:22:31--> 00:22:33

If he wants to be rich, he knows how to be rich.

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

He never

00:22:36--> 00:22:37

walked

00:22:38--> 00:22:39

up to his house.

00:22:45--> 00:22:46

When

00:22:51--> 00:22:55

I saw the person laying down in his in his room, nothing.

00:23:00--> 00:23:11

He said I didn't see anything in the house, that I can fill my eyes with it, like somebody has evolved in the house. Very simple. And he laid down in a very thick,

00:23:13--> 00:23:27

which is basically a color of the leaf of the palm trees, not two sides, all of a sudden, he cried. The kings of the Paragon and the Romans, living in this world, a luxurious life laying down in bed, self

00:23:28--> 00:23:29

and the truth.

00:23:31--> 00:23:32

He said, don't worry.

00:23:33--> 00:23:35

We have the author, we have the next slide.

00:23:37--> 00:23:42

That's not how you value a man in a message. If it is a man looking for work,

00:23:44--> 00:23:55

you just need to re examine your understanding of his life. They said that this man, maybe he was a womanizer you want to have so many women actually cannot.

00:23:57--> 00:24:11

The trouble of having you know Prophethood and messengers and all this stuff in that culture people married 2030 harm hundreds of girls slaves. The key to that is to be a prophet.

00:24:14--> 00:24:20

His personal life showing you that that's not true. He meant she was older than

00:24:21--> 00:24:39

a woman he married women that one of the beauties and you know, being the most attractive woman society for each marriage that he was engaged in. It's for a purpose and a noble purpose. Namely to serve his Deen in this religion.

00:24:41--> 00:25:00

Maybe you know what? He was just a good man looking to change the society. You Muslim. We don't have a problem with you. Maybe someone said yeah, Mohammed is a great man and everything but he's not a prophet. He's a man who want to change society. Why great people Nelson Mandela people. There's great people.

00:25:01--> 00:25:29

Today, we're not saying is a bad name, but doesn't mean you need to be the perfect or a messenger. This is a good man color for good ideas. And we will say, if he's a man just looking for a change, this man never known that he lied in his life. Do you think liars can change society will be trusted by people? And if you want to change what kind of change this man want to make, what do you think will change if you want to make a society?

00:25:30--> 00:25:45

I mean, what would you claim that made him threatened by that you can just simply a matter of habit, I'm just asking you to do this to do that is many people in the society during the time they call for social changes.

00:25:46--> 00:25:55

This person was not looking me to social justice issue or political justice issue, this person was speaking about your relationship with God.

00:25:57--> 00:26:00

You have to pry out to have to fast out to do the things

00:26:01--> 00:26:02

that you do and then in that

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

activity.

00:26:09--> 00:26:15

Those are the core message that he came to worship Allah alone, which is which is the core muscles.

00:26:17--> 00:26:27

Do you think a lion can cope with the heat and to worship Allah subhanaw taala you know, some people said he was insane,

00:26:29--> 00:26:30

schizophrenic

00:26:32--> 00:26:34

person who

00:26:35--> 00:26:40

you go assess with genuine demons, then he speaks words of wisdom

00:26:42--> 00:26:55

to say how many crazy people how many people who are schizophrenic you have seen we've seen the mystery that when they be being in that status, that situation they come up with perfect

00:26:58--> 00:27:14

book of a book like that perfect message like this perfect system and inheritance and politics and human rights in animal rights in building a society established social justice and community when he's possessed

00:27:17--> 00:27:23

by a demon say what two words maybe things you know, doesn't mean you can tell from the lifestyle but that's not

00:27:26--> 00:27:33

he was not a magician. He can delete magic. He can do too much. Sin is one of the most

00:27:37--> 00:27:38

crazy insane people.

00:27:40--> 00:27:44

People like us have goals have a system. Change nations

00:27:45--> 00:27:47

have a billion people today.

00:27:48--> 00:27:51

One someone told me maybe it was an alien.

00:27:54--> 00:27:56

That sounds like something Tom Cruise will say

00:27:59--> 00:28:01

alien. I mean,

00:28:03--> 00:28:16

we know his lineage. We know he came from too crazy. And this point was raised to me. I came to the conclusion that you know what, that shows that you have nothing else to say.

00:28:18--> 00:28:21

And the only thing left is a genuine prophet.

00:28:23--> 00:29:01

A genuine prophet. He was an imposter sallallahu sallam, because it was impossible. He is a man we're looking for his own personal gain. But he's a genuine prophet. He looking for the interest of the people of the community of His Word is never negotiate his message. imposters they give up the compliment. They take temptations. He said the to the mistakes and pauses. They don't do that. They always like to be idealized themselves. Look as perfect as they could. He couldn't save his beloved mother. He said even his own family he mentioned that

00:29:02--> 00:29:09

he wasn't looking for something personal to give personal image. He wasn't divine

00:29:10--> 00:29:15

sallallahu Sallam he said that our mother define I don't have any divine

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

attribute.

00:29:22--> 00:29:28

The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it took him one month when his wife was accused falsely

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

until the message came from the Lord. If this somebody will make you wish to, to refute the accusation so easily you will be asked questions. I don't know. Wait until the message come to me. If this is a pastor, if somebody make it up, he will give the answer No, no time

00:29:48--> 00:29:49

to so much in the

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

science system, teaching manners, that the thing that he came with the thing that he said beyond one human being especially at that

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

Time

00:30:02--> 00:30:04

real profit practice what they preach.

00:30:05--> 00:30:24

That's why even good people without going to names but you taste it yourself go over to India to South Africa to America name whoever you think of these great names civil rights movement leaders. They did good in this area but look at this person a lot It is disgusting

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

it is disgusting a

00:30:30--> 00:30:31

prominent abuse

00:30:33--> 00:30:34

noticed and children's

00:30:36--> 00:30:42

in your personal life and they may be iconic. In other words, it's disgusting what personal

00:30:44--> 00:30:48

profits are there is much better than the public life.

00:30:50--> 00:31:02

So that's why I said there is no conclusion we come alive to except to say that Mohammed Hassan was a true messenger of his Lord, men are among us those who believe in Mohammed sauce on them and follow

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

along.

00:31:19--> 00:31:20

Yo ma

00:31:22--> 00:31:52

Bremen sisters, the thing left, st verse, this is something you can draw on Think about it shirt, you know, it just it just shows you that the power of your power, the power of your muscle, the power of your deed, something you should be proud of live with your team with it. And the more you think about it, the more you know why we love the prophets, I send them because he was a true prophet of his Lord, and which is really the next step should be for each and every one of us is to follow us and

00:31:53--> 00:32:17

to trust him when he says something to us. When he teach us something when he inspired us to do something when he encouraged us to do something we missed, because we believe is a true prophet. And when he forbade us when he disliked when he prohibited us from something he wish to do it when we know that this is his way of life. This is his style, it is a symbol it inspire and encourage us to follow those steps.

00:32:18--> 00:32:21

Because he was truly a prophet of his Lord.

00:32:25--> 00:32:34

Allah gather us with him in the Day of Judgment, gather us with him in paradise. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah to grant us

00:32:36--> 00:32:40
