Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah early.

00:00:19--> 00:00:32

All praise belongs to Allah subhanaw taala amid the peace and blessings of Allah, Allah Allah be upon His final messenger, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Salam. Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters,

00:00:33--> 00:01:13

when any one person studies the life of Muhammad Sallallahu Ali he was sending them, one can only but increase their love for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and in turn the Eman to increase. But it is important for us to understand that there are a number of objectives or number of goals that we will have achieved when studying the life of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. First and foremost, when we studied the life of our beloved Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, we study Sierra, we are studying history we are studying Islamic history. We are studying the formation of our religion, and how Allah subhanaw taala established this beautiful Deen upon Earth. Of course

00:01:13--> 00:01:53

all of the prophets, Allah Hema salatu salam who came before the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, they taught Islam in the general sense in to submit to Allah subhanaw taala with telehealth with worship, but we talking about now that Islam the name of the religion, when Allah subhanaw taala TELLS US ally OMA como Tula calm de novo what meme to ally Camilla Mati, what are the two la cama escena Medina that today I have completed the religion for you and perfected the favor upon you and named Islam as the religion for you. When we study the Sierra and the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when we go through the Macan period, we understand the trials and the

00:01:53--> 00:02:30

difficulties and how the Dawa of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was focused on a Tauheed strengthening your Eman and having a strong relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. And when you study the Madani period, that 10 year period, where the Sharia where the laws of Islam increased, that the Muslims have hamdulillah their hearts were ready to take on the new rulings, and the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala This is one of the great benefits that we take from when studying the Sierra and the life of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam we are actually studying our own history. The scholars, they mentioned three important things for us in modern day that we should

00:02:30--> 00:03:10

focus on and hold on to, and especially with our youth, we should encourage them to focus on these three topics. The first one is the Arabic language, which is really the key to understanding the foundations of our religion, to understand the book of Allah subhanaw taala and the language that was revealed in to study the statements and the words of our beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is the Arabic language. Secondly, is to study history. It is very simple, and very easy to control of people, if history is distorted, to show them where they came from, what the what the values are, what their their morals are and what they stood for. And many times we find many a

00:03:10--> 00:03:49

country or many a nation, they say our country and our nation is based upon these principles. And then they mentioned the history that they were upon. So it is extremely important for us as Muslims to study our history. So we have Arabic and then we have history. And the final one which is of the utmost importance, is studying Akita which is studying belief, our creed, and understanding who Allah subhanaw taala is and understanding how to submit and how to worship Allah subhanaw taala. And none better to go through the Sierra through the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu sallam, to understand this. The next benefit we take is that when we study the life of Muhammad salallahu

00:03:49--> 00:04:27

Alaihe Salam, we find that individual and that personality that we try to relate to, we know that part of our faith and part of our iman is to love the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but bridging that statement to the reality how that how is that actually done? If I make that statement that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the Messenger of Allah is the most beloved person to me. The Companions Radi Allahu Anhu used to make that statement. And how true they were to that statement. Why? Because they knew the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. For us, how much do we really know about the messenger? sallallahu alayhi wasallam? How much do we know him as a messenger

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

as a prophet? As a father, as a statesman, as a military leader, all of these positions that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had, how much do we really know about this character about his manners about how he was kind and compassionate and merciful to everyone that he came in contact with? How much do we really know about the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, this is one of the great benefits that we get in studying his life. And really it is an immune booster, which is the third point I meant to mention a shadow Tyra is that all of us

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

are looking for that Eman booster, something that will give us that pick me up. Sometimes I'm feeling a little bit down and then I can go to read a portion or a part of the CLI. And then Subhanallah I find that my Eman is raised just as a person, that they would go to the book of Allah subhanaw taala or and read a particular set of ayat which are particularly important to them the meanings of these ayat, the miraculous nature of the Quran, that they feel this raise of this rising Eman within their heart, studying the seer of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Studying the challenges and the patience that he endured. He showed through so many different times in the

00:05:38--> 00:06:15

difference situations and the trials and tribulations that he went through with the loss of his family members. Subhanallah will only increase our love for the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and at the same time, increase our Eman. Going through the Sierra we will also study the lives of all the individuals that lived with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, because studying the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam means we will also study the lives of the people that were most chose most beloved people to Allah subhanaw taala after the prophets Lima salatu salam, and they are the companions. So at the same time we studied the life of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah,

00:06:15--> 00:06:52

because how many occasion we look at the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu Sallam you find Abu Bakr is there, and how many times you find an occasion that formidable on top is there, or I'll even arbitrarily birth man, or any of those 10 Blessed individuals who promise the Jannah and all of those individuals whom Allah Allahu Allah gave a special gift to to be part of the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you also benefit from increasing and improving your worship. This is something which is fundamental, which is one of the fruits of, of studying the life of the prophet Muhammad, Salah Salem studying how to interact in certain situations. When you have

00:06:52--> 00:06:58

an argument where you have a dispute with another person, you find how the Prophet sallallahu Ellison would resolve disputes between people

00:06:59--> 00:07:38

whenever you need it, or you need guidance on how to deal with a trial or a calamity. You look at the behavior of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and you find how he sallallahu alayhi salam was the most patient of people and understanding the color of the decree of Allah subhanaw taala and also you benefit from having an Islamic identity. Whenever a person is exposed to any environment that they in, that they are in, ultimately, without any choice, that they will be influenced by something. They are either influenced by something which is of benefit to them, or they may be influenced by something which may harm them. By studying the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu

00:07:38--> 00:08:17

alayhi wa sallam the person feels that they are part of an ummah, they are part of a brotherhood and a sisterhood, which is worldwide, which goes beyond race, which goes beyond nationality goes beyond anything. It is a link that Allah subhanaw taala established between billions of people all around the world. So a person a Muslim has an identity. And it is important to have an identity because if you don't have an identity, you will be somebody who's like the wind. Today you are like this tomorrow, you are like that, you can be affected and pushed around. Whereas a person who feels honored that they are Muslim, and they are proud to say that I am a Muslim, and that they are a

00:08:17--> 00:08:54

follower of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, than the person feels that they have a goal and objective and a purpose in life. And with that, you find that Allah subhanaw taala will bless them and guide them and give them the real happiness that they are looking for in their lives. Another great benefit we take when studying the seal of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is how to defend the honor of our beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Throughout history there have always been people who tried to attack the character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, bringing about lies even from the time of the Quraysh the machete corner of the Qureshi to say

00:08:54--> 00:09:32

against the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is names like al Qaeda verb, he is a liar, so ahead of me as a magician, he is occur he is a fortune teller. None of these things they they stuck against the character of the Prophet sallallahu it was his character and his life has stood the test of time and Alhamdulillah throughout the centuries and the generations of people. No, no, who knows the character and the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu wasallam would have to testify in all honesty, that there is no individual like this man. Those people who study the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu Sallam would have the ability to correct people who have false information, or

00:09:32--> 00:10:00

who speak bad against the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his character and how he behaved in certain situations. As a Muslim, I'm a well they're just I was I would defend my own mother, my own father, my own children or any of my family members. I am there to defend the honor of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the final benefit I want to mention inshallah Allah is that going through the Sierra, not just once or twice, and as one of the companions that they said we would take

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

Each the CEO or the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam to our youth, just as we would teach them the Quran. I believe that in modern day now, it is of the utmost importance for every single Muslim to go through the life, the biography of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If we are saying La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah, I'm testifying that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is indeed the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what really am I showing to Allah subhanaw taala and showing to myself, that that actually is a reality in my life. Is it something which is just merely a statement that I inherited from my father or my

00:10:41--> 00:11:19

for my forefathers and my mother and that really, it doesn't mean much to me? Or when I say a shadow, a nun Mohammad Rasool Allah, indeed, I bear witness and testify that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the Messenger of Allah, that there has a real meaning to me, that when I say his name, I feel a love towards his character, and that I have a desire to meet him in the Paradise and want to be in his company. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless us that we have the company of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Paradise, Allah whom I mean, may Allah subhanaw taala get us all in the Paradise Allahu Amin, WA salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad while early he was off
