bla Mila ramen are human hungry. They have been I mean was similar to us, or other food you can carry more other early he was speaking of Jimena Salam alaykum. Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. My dear brothers and sisters, our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the greatest color to Islam throughout the time of history. From all the prophets and messengers, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam displayed a great amount of resilience in front of what was a very, very difficult time in the life of any individual. Not only did he sallallahu alayhi wasallam put it upon himself to deliver the message of Islam to the tribes to deliver the message of Islam, to the chieftains to the
heads of all the different tribes persevered with his own people traveled to other cities outside Makkah to talk for example, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would take every single opportunity in trying to deliver this lamb to even individuals. And I want to mention the stories of two particular in particular individuals whom the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam delivered an Islam to the first individual His name is Sweden assignment. This individual who is known in it was known as alchemy, the complete one, and in fact, he used to live in El Medina, he came to Makkah to perform a pilgrimage either the Hajj or Umrah or something like this, because the Arabs at that
time, they used to know how much the Eastern hour umbra, even though it had become corrupted in how they used to do it. They knew that MCO was a sacred place, they knew that it was a place for pilgrimage and that people used to come every year and throughout the year, to perform their rituals and the act of what they called a burden. And in fact, of course, it it is not a bad because only true worship can be to Allah subhanaw taala. So they were performing their work and so on and so forth. This individual, he came to Makkah to perform his his promote pilgrimage. He was very is known very well known as a poet, as a Shire, one of the very best, the prophets, Allah Allahu Allah
and he was I went to him and spoke to him. And this individual actually had heard about the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I would like to hear of what are some of the words that you use that you say because I've heard that it is very beautiful. So he said some poetry which was was very beautiful, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praised him for what he had said. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I have something which is greater than that which you have. Here, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, did he respond with poetry? No. The Prophet sallallahu eilersen did he respond with his own speech?
No. The Prophet salallahu alayhi salam responded with the kalam with the speech of Allah subhanaw taala by reciting it,
upon completing and finishing some of the verses of Allah subhanaw taala, this individual so a diviner Swamiji said, indeed what you have said is beautiful, and it is amazing. In fact, maybe it is better than what I have said. Here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam showed him and Islam taught him, Islam. It is said to Allahu Allah, Allah, that when this individual when he returned to Medina, it is said that he was he was actually killed by a particular tribe in Medina. And it was also said that he, he embraced Islam. However, some of the scholars have differed over whether he actually became a Muslim or not. And Allah subhanaw taala knows best, we cannot say with absolute
certainty, what his ending was. And, of course, his judge, will be Allah subhanaw taala. But the point of mentioning the story is what is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at every single opportunity would try to speak to an individual and deliver the message of Islam no matter who they were. The second individual that I want to mention a shout out to Allah is a man called profiler programmer at dosi. This individual was a very well known chieftain, a very well known individual from the tribe of a DOS when he came into Makkah, because he resided outside Makkah, immediately the Quraysh that they went to him, and this is what the correlation is what they used to
do. When a famous individual, a well known person, a person who was the head of a tribe or something like that he entered into Makkah, they would immediately swarm him go to him, and tell him about what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was teaching to stay away from him, not to listen to him, because they were aware of the beauty of the Quran. For this reason, they said, do not go near him, do not listen to him. And Allah subhanaw taala makes many references that they would place their fingers in their ears because they wanted to try and stop themselves from listening to the words of Allah subhanaw taala so they said to activate the neuroma do not go near Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam
do not LISTEN to His Verses. They're like magic. You
over maybe overcome by what you hear.
He was a clever man. He was a sound man. And he was a person with his own decision. He made his own decisions. So what he did when he was leaving, actually he came into contact with the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said to him, You are the man whom the Quraysh said to me, Do not come near. You are the man who said that I should not listen to your verses. However, I have heard you reciting certain verses when he passed, passed by the prophet, Mohammed salah. And so, he heard the Prophet Allah says, I'm reciting verses, and he said, what you have said, is something which I find amazing, and what the people of the Quraysh will have said about you. I am now it is
not clear to me what the situation is, I find you the complete opposite of what they told me. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, I will recite more is to you. So the Prophet sallallahu erysimum continued and recited more verses from the Quran. So to find it murmur, a dosi. And I say a lot the Allahu Anhu because he embraced Islam. Upon hearing the verses of Allah subhanaw taala. This individual, he embraced Islam.
I want to take point here
and state the importance of us engaging with the book of Allah subhanaw taala Allah Allahu Allah did not reveal the Quran for us for it to be compiled into a book. And for it to be placed on the shelves, maybe even wrapped up in a nice piece of cloth. okay for us to maybe just kiss it and then put it back without reading the book of Allah subhanaw taala without us engaging with the words of Allah, Allah Allah, what is the point of Allah subhanaw taala revealing this book to us and us not engaging and reading it and benefiting it benefit when you're benefiting from it and understanding it.
The Prophet salallahu alayhi salam when he would speak with the people, when the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu would speak with the people, they would recite the verses of Allah subhanaw taala this is of the utmost importance, what the Prophet sallallahu added some called his people to was learning Allah Illallah to flee who, that if you say the statement of la ilaha illallah that you will be successful. That is the assess, that is the beginning, the very beginning of everything to call to submission to Allah subhanaw taala and every first that you find in the Quran, will be teaching you, enabling you to understand your goal and your objective in life and that is to submit to Allah
And how many of us we have turned away from this message? How many of us don't understand the importance of this message? When you go to the Quran, you will see everything is there. A logical URL is teaching you everything that you need to know to how to submit to Allah subhanaw taala from the beginning of Surah Al Fatiha all the way to Surah to nurse every single chapter, every single verse is there teaching you how to submit how to love how to have hope, have to have fear in Allah subhanaw taala when this all comes together, you will see that this is the most beautiful of speech, that there is no speech that is equal to that. And that so many people upon hearing the words of
Allah subhanaw taala embraced Islam, you need to look no further than the story of Ramadan Hapa bloody Allahu Anhu he just heard, heard a few verses from surah Taha and his whole life changed, becoming from being a very angry individual wanting to kill somebody, for them Subhanallah going to the house of that individual, and saying that I am your follower, I'm there to support you and there to support Islam and to submit to Allah Subhan Allah to Allah. This is the beauty of using the Quran in our Dawa, to focus on the message of a towhead and to use the Quran.
Many of us when we are talking about Islam, sometimes we feel we have to give our own speech. And we make the speech very long and elongated about trying to explain issues. There are times when the best message which is delivered in a very short way, very clear. And this is how Allah subhanaw taala explains things to us. Similarly, the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam in his hotbar in his Friday Sermon, the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu would describe the sermon as something very short, something very powerful, reminding them of the paradise warning them of the Hellfire, instilling submission to Allah subhanaw taala because that is what they needed, not for example, giving a
lecture which last for two or three hours and the people become, you know, disconnected what is going on, addressing the people in the way that they understand. This is of the utmost importance. And this is something we need to return to when we are talking about the message of Islam. When we're talking about giving the our return to using verses from the Quran. Use the words of Allah subhanaw taala to to make clear the point that you want to talk about when you're speaking about the prophets, Allah He must salatu salam, if you go to the stories of the poor
If it's for example, in urban Cathedral, a very famous scholar and historian from Islamic history, his book on the Stories of the Prophets, on each prophet, he has sectioned off all that yet that Allah subhanaw taala mentions concerning their story. The majority of what is said Subhanallah are the words of Allah subhanaw taala, who is best to tell us the story about the story of Musa he said in Allah subhanaw taala, who is better than telling the story than the story of Asa risotto salaam, then Allah subhanaw taala. And you see in this particular book that was compiled by Eben cathedra, may Allah subhanho mercy upon him, that the story is the prophet majority of what is written there
is a quote from the book of Allah subhanaw taala. Similarly,
when teaching our children and teaching our families and teaching people the message of Islam, try to focus on the message of Islam. By using the Quran and the Sunnah, we need to return to this so that we can give the revelation to the people and move away from the words of our own selves, focus on the words of Allah subhanaw taala. If there are times when things need to be explained, of course, then you need to explain it in a way that is simple for the people. And similarly, when we deliver the message of Islam to people do not necessarily expect a result immediately. And nitida Fody sometimes we are people who are very hasty, that you've given the message of Islam to somebody,
you know it to be the truth, and you expect that individual to accept it straight away. Sometimes Subhanallah is the Hekima of Allah subhanaw taala it is the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala that that person may embrace Islam, or may be affected by the message that you gave to them, maybe months maybe years later. There are many stories that we have heard that the person heard about the message of Islam only to be affected. Many, many years later. What is upon us is to deliver the message of Allah subhanaw taala then we make dua to Allah subhanaw taala to change the hearts of the people. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to be sincere Allahumma Amin BarakAllahu li wa sallahu wa Salam
