Under Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa mentored as soon as he hola yo Medina. Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. we commence with our second lecture today, which will be presented by Shia was in Clemson.
He was in Clemson has converted to Islam in 1994. And then after three years of after his conversion, he went to study at the University of Al Madina Munawwara Upon returning to the UK he has been involved in many institutions in schools. Currently he is head
really involved in that well in the UK and internationally. Without further ado, I would like to pass it on to the chef to commence the lecture
also the volume to be maybe raised slightly
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Asha difficulty la hiya Jemaine. So he did not want to be in on Mohammed. While early he was her big Marine, my dear brothers and sisters Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
So for the time that we have together Inshallah, to Allah in this house of Allah subhanaw taala.
That we remind ourselves of the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given us and from those blessings specifically, is the sending of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
to the world.
And through the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we were able to understand Allah subhanaw taala
through his speech, through the Quran, and through the example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Now we want to as we connect with Allah subhanaw taala with our Salah every day.
Whether it's for God the harasser, Maghrib in Asia, this is how the Muslim connects to his Lord,
standing, bowing, frustrating supplicating reading Quran, and if you think about the prayer itself,
is made up of so many different types of ibadah. Standing in worship, bowing in worship, prostrating in worship, making, reading Quran, so many things, this is how we connect with our Lord.
But then the question is, how do we connect
with our inner beam Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
our connection with Allah subhanaw taala is very clear, and how to go ahead and do that. And also it is also clear how to connect with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So Allah subhanaw taala he tells us in Surah Tala zap, chapter number 33, in verse number 21,
that there is a verse, which, when you look at the context of where the verse is,
it becomes even more important to us.
And it is a very well known verse, in which Allah subhanaw taala tells us about the example of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, Lakota, kennela configurer rasool Allah He who sweat on Hasina, that you had indeed in the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The best example
chapter number 33, in which this verse is in is Surah Tala has said
what is a verb, which you translate as the Confederates. This is the fifth year after the Hijrah, of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam
better was in the year two, or year three, in the year five. All of the kuffaar are surrounded Medina
to destroy the Muslims, and they stayed there and put Medina under a siege for more than an entire month.
This was an exposing of the mafia teen
to root out those who are pretending to be Muslims. When the situation became very difficult,
those who had agreements with Muslims, they broke their agreements.
And this is when that the fear of the Muslims
by local 100 which the throats the fear was so severe.
Here Allah subhanaw taala explains how the disbelievers surrounded the Muslims and put them under siege. If you read surah Al Assad
and the response of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam during one of the most difficult times
and that this verse is right in the middle of these verses that you have in the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the best of examples
and in the following verse,
When Allah subhanaw taala tells us when the believers they saw the Promise of Allah and His messenger Allah Azza wa sallam.
And they declared that to be the truth, that the promise of victory to the Muslims
this only increase them in their Eman and their submission into Allah subhanaw taala
so Allah Tabata, Kota, Allah tells us to follow the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the verse that is talking about that happened, one of the most during the most difficult occasions during the time that the Prophet of Islam was in in Medina.
we know that our faith and our Eman can never be complete. Unless we love the Prophet alayhi salatu salam more than our parents, our children, anybody
let me know Hadoken Hattah Akona habla la he meanwhile Eddie he were worried he went Nursey Raja who Muslim who Buhari Mustafa con la
none of you will truly believe until I become more beloved to them than his father, his son, and all of mankind.
So here we have Allah subhanaw taala telling us to have a connection with the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam by following him
one narration that I mentioned to you that the our Eman cannot be complete, unless our connection based upon love
supersedes the love of any other person.
I mean, the narration or the verses and durations are plentiful.
But let us think about how we can connect and to follow the Prophet IRAs to Salem.
What I want to do now is to give a couple of examples, all of how to connect
or how even more so the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu
how they wanted to connect with the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam first I'm going to find works during the day do you see them?
You see fireworks during the daytime or not? That's usually done at nighttime.
So the Companions, the best of companions ever given to any messenger
if we look at how they wanted to connect with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam this kind of builds to incentivize to push us to have a desire also to have that connection with the messenger of allah sallallahu Allah Allah wa seldom.
to inspire us. There is a companion above Eros. Robbie at Blue cab a salami. Radi Allahu Anhu.
Now this is a young companion, who embraced Islam, as I mentioned very is a young person.
And he testified to his love and his dedication
to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
This is a companion who was as his mentor the Hadith in Sahih Muslim Karna Minh Hillis refer
he was from the people of suffer.
Now you think who is the people of suffer?
These were from the poorest of the companions.
The poorest of them, they never had any place to live, never had a home to live in. They actually lived in the masjid.
And they was a place in the back of the master of the Prophet alayhi salam which had a roof on it, that they were able to stay there.
These were in terms of
poverty, were people who maybe had one garment to cover our ah, this is how poor they were
Robbie RTBU cabel Eslami was from the people of Sofia
never had anything.
what he wanted to do
is to serve the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wanted to serve the messenger help him do something.
he was previously a slave once upon a time, but he was freed by the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.
So this Rabi Alpha young man, young boy,
he said and then I mentioned that the narration mentions at times I would spend the nighttime with the messenger of allah sallallahu Christendom
and I would bring the water for him to make well do
I bring like a small bowl
And so the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam would make will do.
So the Prophet alayhi wa sallam, he sees this young companion, Liam Nico che doesn't have anything.
At this time, there is just the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam and his young companion, just the two of them.
So the Prophet sallallahu, IDF says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says 70
Ask, ask something from me, what do you want
a person in such position? Who doesn't, doesn't have anything.
You may say, Make dua get married to a pious woman who make dua that, you know, become self sustaining provisions, something from dunya to me to get me out of the position that I'm in.
So his response is
it's profound such an amazing response.
His response is as a Luca Morava koto COVID Jana, I ask that I can be with you have your companionship and Jana, I don't want to be in Jana McFadden pay from people agenda. I want to have your companionship and be with you in the Paradise.
This is a person who has a rule him a person who has high aspirations.
He wants to be with the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So the messenger of Allah Salah Sam says anything else? Okay, the Dalek maybe it was something else.
Now if the prophets also makes dua
it's likely that the professor isms do I will be accepted.
He responses who was a smaller one as well I want just to be with you in paradise.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says we're in the island of sick because redistribute
helped me help you
by you doing what? By making lots of sujood
and when you do most of your scheduled to do in Salah.
If you want to be with me, then you have to establish yourself your prayer.
This particular Sahabi narrated only a few Hadith that you can count them on your hand.
He died maybe in the year 63 of the Hijra.
Now imagine a person who
who asks for such a thing
is a very similar story to this actually.
That but the prophets have said asked me for something.
There was a narration that during the time of Musa alayhis salam
that of course masala sand came after Yusuf Ali Salam.
there was an old woman from Mary Israel who had some knowledge that nobody else had it.
When you Savannah SLM when he when he died, he asked that he would be buried in the Holy Land.
Round lochsa area, this is where the cooler holds the holy lands
so that he will be buried there.
So when it was the time of moosari said
that as we know that our doula Kulu just told me that the Earth does not consumed the bodies of the Gambia.
So he asked, meaning Mousavi salon where Yusuf Ali Salam was buried.
And they said, this realm, this knowledge is only with one person, this old woman, and this old woman said, I will not tell you unless you can make dua that I will be with you and Jana, for a similar situation.
So moosari Salam he made that this woman would be and have his companionship in the Paradise. So she told him where the place of the use of Ali Salam was buried.
So it's a very, very similar
situation where a person is given the option of asking anything that you would wish for, and their wish was to be and have the companionship of the prophet that was sent to them.
Whenever you find the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam talking about the the Paradise, the rewards of a Jana, for example, in the hadith of Abu Saeed and the liquidity of the yellow or the Allahu Anhu
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the people of Paradise will see the inhabitants of the dwellings above them, just as you see the shining stars, which remain in the eastern and western horizons
because of the excellence and virtue that some have
stating that the people in the Paradise will have to follow binome some will be of a higher level than others.
Upon hearing this, they said, y'all rasool Allah, tell Kelly manners and Mia, love your Blue Room. The maybe these are the places the prophets, that nobody else will be able to reach them.
Meaning that we are not prophets, we are not messengers, how will will be have companionship and see you we will reach those levels.
The prophets, allah sallallahu. Again, the point is what is their connection and wanting to be with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam here the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam replied to them, Bella will do the NIF CVAD return on him and will be learned he was so Docomo Celine, that no these are places all for men, women who believed in a law and that they believed in the truthfulness of truthfulness are true to the messengers.
So here the Prophet sallallahu saw the connection that they were asking and searching for and he affirmed that and gave that to them
you know, the story of the three individuals when they looked at themselves
and they said, no, no, no min min Rasulullah Salah said well we compared to the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam they saw themselves as not worthy. And so Oh, they will discuss what they will try to do do something so that they can try to be like the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam even more. So what the one of them say in the letter letters they were doing they said I will never get married.
When they assume Ah, one of the some I'm gonna fast every single day.
And the other one says of Como lane. I'm going to pray every single night
in their attempt to connect with the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Upon hearing this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he calls them and asks them, is it true what I heard about you know, accusing them straight away? Is it true what I heard about you? And they said, Yes, there are so Allah, this is what we said. And the famous statement when the Prophet alayhi wa sallam said,
This is not from my son from ANOVA and Suniti Felisa money, that whoever turns it goes against my son is not from me.
So connecting with the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam doesn't mean exaggerating and doing things beyond the boundaries.
To how do you and I are now try to connect with the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam, what can we do practically practically?
One of the most beautiful things for us to show our devotion love to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam is be plentiful in your salutations and salams upon the Prophet alayhi salatu salam
Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or the the dodo that you say in your Salah Allah Masha Allah Allah Muhammad Ali Muhammad Kemah so later Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Ibrahim, so on, you send salutations upon the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and each time that you do this, all Allahu alayhi salam, you get 10 times for that.
And two benefits as well. It is a removal of your anxiety
and forgiveness of your sins.
This is how you show your love to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam verbally by sending your salutations and peace and blessings upon him by saying sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad
also, to follow his way he sunnah his example, in Salah. So to perform your Salah as the Prophet sallallahu Adison solo Kamara to Manasa Lee, pray as you have seen the praying. So you look at the different aspects of your prayer.
So you get a book, which describes the prayer of the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, and there are many that have been translated to English, then of course, there are many in Arabic as well hamdulillah a book that describes the prayer of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam.
For you to understand, and this is something practical for you.
what are the pillars of the prayer? The outcome of the prayer? What are they?
If you'd like to find out what otherwise you bet your obligatory parts of the prayer, what are they? And what are the Sunon parts of the prayer?
The verbal Sunon and the actions which are part of the Sunnah of the prayer.
And this you understand
In these different aspects of the prayer will then give you an understanding of the prostration of forgetfulness. If you make a mistake in your prayer, or if you do something or somebody asks you about the prayer, so you become a person who's aware of their prayer, the different supplications that you can make at the beginning of your prayer.
Am I allowed to recite one or two sources of the source Fatiha? Do they have to be in order? Or what are the jurors can I say in my sujood Oroku
so, go find the book of syphilis Salado Nabhi,
the description of the prayer of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, so that you can connect with how he SallAllahu Sallam how he would pray.
Now, there may be those who have,
have done such subjects gone through books,
don't see the importance or the value of doing it again,
or studying this original shot, or being aware of the blessings that were given to you and that we have
winter dunya amatola Hila to Suha if you try to count the blessings that a lot of our data is given to you.
There's so many you, your sight, your hearing, that the fact that you can, you can eat and enjoy food, you can taste food, you can smell food. This is just how us you know the things that you use for your external your eyes, your sight and so on your senses, or the other blessings that are lost power facilitated for you continuously throughout your life. Maybe at times,
you can become a little absent minded about being Thank you thankful.
And the evens Subhanallah even the best of people needed at times to be reminded about the blessings.
And when they recognize the blessing
of having in connection, and knowing the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam, recognizing the unknowing that brought men who on the battlefield were like lions,
men that were like mountains immovable objects on the battlefield. But when they recognized the blessing that was amongst them, it led them to cry like young children.
So if you look at the example of the Battle of humane
so the Battle of humane in which the Muslims had a battle against two tribes, houses in and Akif
and they were larger number.
And the Muslims were also good in number.
And Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this in sort of tilbyr where some of the Muslims amongst themselves, they felt confident about the numbers that they had.
So Allah subhanaw taala reminded them that don't be deceived by the numbers that you have for the power that you think you have.
So the Muslims, they were victorious in this battle,
and they were got hold of aneema the spoils of war that they hadn't got before.
24,000 camels 100,000 sheep, horses, too many to count, gold,
that are him done and here's gold and silver.
Here the Prophet alayhi wa salam distributed large amounts of this aneema among amongst many of the new Muslims, many of the new Muslims, Hadith radical Islam.
amongst this group of people were the unsolved
now the unsolved were two tribes and Laos and hazards.
Who was the seed? Who was the master and the leader of house or side even more Earth Radi Allahu Anhu was to hit and he was martyred
after the Battle of conduct
and then it was Saturday Bravada Saturday, but nobody will say yet the master that leader tribe of has Raj
and he was present here.
So he'd gone through so much with the Prophet sallallahu Alesund from the moment that they arrived in El Medina burger or conduct Davia all of these trials and tribulations for this honeymoon to be given the winnings of war to be given to all these people who are just maybe last week last week accepted Islam
Some of the people of the comb began discussing amongst themselves about this issue that the frame has been given to all these other people
about the unsolved
so this news reached the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And he called saddened Obeida said he
heard this about what his people are saying, well, Maura,
what is your take on the situation?
And his, his response? He says, Oh Messenger of Allah, I am but one of my people.
Meaning that what the people are saying, we are saying together
the Messenger of Allah saw some said Gmail calm, bring them, bring them
so sad even Oba Rhodiola I know he brings them all the answer,
major names of the sahaba.
So he brings them all.
from the way of the Arabs at that time,
is that they would mention when they address one another, about the fourth, or the virtues that those people have over them,
not what they are, that ye have done for you. So the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned the things that they had done for him,
that they had given him a place to stay in Medina, and that they had supported him.
And he mentioned all the good and virtues that they had done for him.
And that Allah subhanaw taala, likewise had joined their hearts, the blessings that Allah Allah Allah had given to them.
And their response was,
indeed, Allah and His Prophet are far more generous and better than what we have done for you, you have done more for us.
So the Prophet saw some said, What do you have to say, I'll answer anything else.
So we have nothing else to say, well, Allah Hill Mina, well, he followed
the old grace and thanks is due to Allah subhanaw taala. And what the messenger Allah
and he reminded them also that they used to call me a liar, they used to call me a poet, and you took me in you did this for me, and you did this for me and you did this for me.
And they said, our answer is though do you have become upset with such a trivial and small matter?
What they had become upset over is the distribution
is they felt that their allegiance and support the answer the helpers had gone back a long, long way. And here the new ones, they had got something that they did not.
So the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam reminded them
that they were thinking about something or focusing on something which was saraha very, very trivial, very, very small, not worthy of talking about.
And then he said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and you have to have a nurse the shirty Wilbury,
one from 30 Runa Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, salam ala haidakhan.
He said, You're not satisfied, or would you not be happy? These people, they walk away with their sheep and they walk away with the goats and the camels. That's what they will take away.
You people, you take away the messenger of allah sallallahu ala center. That's what you take away.
Makkah yes has been conquest has been his victory has been overcome the land of Tel hate and Hamdulillah.
The Messenger of Allah Islam is not going back to his homeland in Makkah. He goes back to the unsought.
He said, Well, let enough see Mohammed and Beardy.
In whose hand Muhammad's soul is in Salallahu Alaihe Salam.
If it wasn't for him, Allah
I would be from the people of unsolved
if the people of unsolved going one direction,
Muhammad's awesome goes in that direction with them. Even if everybody else goes in that direction. The answer this way. Everybody else goes that way. The Messenger of Allah Satsang goes with the people of the answer.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah Houma, Himalayan salt, water and salt, water burner Obernai will answer. Oh Allah have mercy upon the unsought and the sons of the answer and the grandchildren of the answer.
Upon hearing that, it was that reconnection, that reminder of what they had been given
that the best of people at that times need a reminder.
And upon hearing that, those who participated in that battle victorious, slaying the enemy, stood there crying, reminding themselves of the blessing of having the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam in limits
now the Messenger of Allah alayhi salatu salam Goddamnit has passed away.
His sunnah, his advice, his ways, are very much alive with us preserved in books of Hadith. Buhari Muslim cooked up soon.
Animals Alamosa, the books of narrations are so many preserved will Allah Hill hunt,
the guidance is there.
But yet you can go to a place a city. You can have two mustards or three mustards within a stone's throw of each other.
And at each other's necks for what
the arguments, the fighting, the arrogance, the ignorance,
you don't follow mine. I don't follow yours Mahathir.
And then you may think to yourself, I don't have to imagine that. Because for us, maybe that's reality.
within a stone's throw of an area, we have so many masajid every single one of them in a different direction.
This cannot be right and cannot be correct.
Because connecting with the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon correct guidance should not Joe push people away, brings people together.
And it gets to the state where the people who are going in a different direction believe this is the deen of Allah for me to go in a different direction.
Imagine this is the deen of Allah for me to behave like this
splitting well at 10 05 shallow, which everybody who do not differ, do not argue.
Why because you will fail for tip shallow, and any call any strength you had, will disappear.
That's not to say that there may not be some areas of discussion. Some areas of dispute which there needs to be some compromise, not for a person just who has the strongest winds, no, but to go back and do things in the correct way.
While Spirou be patient at times, because indeed Allah subhanaw taala will be with those who are patient.
So as much as we desire
to be connected to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
how beautiful it would be
to know that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has a desire to connect with us as well.
But it's both goes both ways. Subhan Allah
but any relationship has to go both ways.
And that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and many generations many examples.
If I mentioned for example, a sharper
the great intercession
the great intercession in which the Prophet alayhi salatu salam will intercede for his own myonuclei Amma.
In the great long Hadith
where the people is described will go to the prophets or Amis Salaam and each one of them one by one will excuse themselves from helping them
that in again at the end of Surah, to adduser, the husband and the wife, the children, on that day everybody will be busy with their own children, their own affair.
You will be alone asking and saying enough see enough. See, someone oppressed me you go to them. I want my you take all my good deeds are you take my bad deeds, you're 1pm and and after all of that is done. Then you realize that you're short in your deeds. You see yourself in a bad way.
Then you go to the Messenger of Allah Allah Azza ich Fairley intercede for me help me O Messenger of Allah.
And at the Messenger of Allah has informed us literally in a billion naira that every messenger had a call that was answered while as part of that he held that back to your multi ama that he would intercede for his ummah, Allah Almighty almighty.
Oh Allah my ummah, my ummah
and in an alliteration
when the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam in sujood, making dua for the Ummah, of everyone that would come after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
his connection with you
as he is on Allah, Hema, and
it's distressful for him he hurts him that you may cope, because any harm
meaning for Rahim and to the believers,
that he is merciful, and shows clemency
the examples that when the Prophet alayhi wa sallam goes out with the Sahaba
goes to a macabre goes to the Nokia the graveyard.
And he says a Salam aleikum Hello Dr. immunol, meaning
we're in insha Allah who become law when
he gives salams to the deceased makes dua for them. Then he says What did to Anna Catarina econo I would desire that I would see my brothers you know the Hadith and the Companions Allah listener why Nokia rasool Allah Oh, you know your your brothers, Belen, Tomas Harvey, you are my companions.
And a separate NARRATION The Prophet saw some says that my brothers are those you may know be well, I'm your only those who believed in me and did not see me.
And this hadith was from Ryan here when he went to the graveyard and desire to see his brothers Rahu Muslim.
They said the rasool Allah How will you identify? And how will you know the people that believe in you?
On your webcam?
So the Prophet sallallahu admits it's a valid question. How will you know who they are? They'll be billions of people, the followers of Musa the followers Raisa the followers of all the prophets, how will you know your followers? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, given an example says, suppose a man
he has horses, and that his horses have a white streak on their foreheads, and legs.
And all the rest of the horses were black horses.
Would you be able to identify these horses with these white markings? They would stand out clearly. Would you not recognize his own horses? And they said better? Yeah, rasool Allah, yes, you would be able to recognize them.
And here he said, sallAllahu Sallam that my followers will have radiant white faces radiant glowing with the arms and legs owing method, and we'll do
from the from how they used to make will do that the professor said, Well, no, you know, you buy these parts blowing.
And I would meet them.
And I would arrive at the hold the system where it is a place where a water is there will people will drink from that if they drink from it. They will never become thirsty again. There's whiter than milk sweeter than honey.
But there will be those
who will be driven away.
They will be driven away.
People will go expecting to be there with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, for our colo Sokka Sokka be away go away.
Who are these people?
These people, they recognize Muslims, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but they're told to go away. Those who in innovated those who innovated into the religion
in which we were warned, here QEMU was the third tool or more. Be aware of those newly invented matters. Again, another example of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam showing concern and connecting with his followers.
This is just a few examples. We're talking about here connecting with the Messenger of Allah Elisa to Saddam. And how likely is that the prophet or heiress of Saddam used to do it likewise, not just for his us hub, his companions that have desire to make dua for us, that he would to be able to connect with us on your multi Emma.
As for listening and obeying the messenger of Allah alayhi salatu salam, then the ayat or so many, to mention, in this particular Mahara or this reminder, there are so many
obeys the messenger has obeyed Allah
Almighty Rasul Allah will want you to Allah Allah rasool Allah for Allah commanded in an M Allahu Allah, human. And Naveen was said the Athena was Shahada. He was Saudi he knew or Hassan Hola, a karateka
Surah to Nyssa in verse number 69. Whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, they will be with those whom Allah Subhan Allah has bestowed His grace and His favor from among the prophets, the truthful, the martyrs and the righteous.
This particular verse, Even cathedra Rahim Allah, He says that whoever acts on the commands of Allah subhanaw taala and the messenger RNA
and abandons what Allah and His Messenger at Islam have prohibited, Allah will settle that person in the abode of honor and generosity in the company of the prophets, and those after them in rank.
And they are a third the Akun and those who come after them, the shahada or the martyrs and then after that the salah Hone
and after mentioning that a lot of our core data says we have an older acre of Yukon how excellent these companions are.
Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu. She narrates the Aman Jaya Raj Julian Elena J. Raju, Loon, Elin nebi, Salah Salem, Amman, he came to the messenger Elisa to Sudan, Sudan rasool Allah.
In color, a hub Ilya may Neff, see what have you already. He said, O Messenger of Allah. You are more beloved to me than myself, my family and my kids.
Were in Nila corner for debate. And sometimes I'm at home.
And I remember you.
This is the attachment and love of this companion for the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam. He said, I remember you from our spirit had to take from your elec, imagine that. He said, I can't be patient, I need to come see you. I just need to see you because I have so much affection and love for you.
And then he says
if I think about the future, I think about my death and your death.
I know that if the Hult agenda, that if you enter the Jannah that you will be raised in the placements of under begin.
You will be in the high places with the Prophets and Messengers.
we're in the heart of Jana. If I go into Jana Kashi to allow rock
scared I don't see you.
So the Prophet alayhi wa salam did not respond to him, no answer.
Until Allah Subhana Allah revealed to this area in Surah to Nyssa that whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger, then they will be with those whom Allah subhanaw taala has placed His favor upon from the prophets
and the truthful ones, and the martyrs and the righteous
that Allah terracotta Allah answered,
what was in the heart of this individual in wanting to be with the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
were able to to do
if you follow Him, if you obey Him, you will be guided
It is not possible. It is impossible for a person to be upon the straight path except that they have knowledge that they obey the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and to reject the sunnah to say I'm only listening and following Quran isn't it's an oxymoron. It is against a statement that is in itself, the opposite.
I follow the Quran only and not the Sunnah, what the Quran tells you to follow the Sunnah.
So the statement itself doesn't even make sense
that no messenger was sent, Ill you will be vanilla except that he was or they were commanded to be obeyed.
The last thing I want to mention shallow Tada
I mentioned one earlier about going through the description of the prayer. Find Similar to Salah description of the prayer of the Prophet alayhi salam and there are many versions. There's one by
shipment Athenian or himolla. Shall Bernie rahamallah Very, very good books.
Take that and read it.
Other practical approaches, other things that we can do
To connect ourselves with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam,
study the Sierra,
study the life of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.
What I mentioned to you in English now
is something that you can go to is a very short book, it's maybe 30 pages 30 I think it's 36 pages, the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam by Imam nawawi.
It's a very small book, it talks about the lineage, the name, the age, the children, the family of the Prophet Elijah to sell them and important events in his life. So you can start with that.
You have the books like when the moon split, the seals nectar. You have the abridged biography of the Prophet Alison two volumes by Sheikh Muhammad Abdul habra. himolla Shama al Muhammadiyah by Mr. Timothy,
describing the appearance and the character of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, not just the explanation of or translation rather of the narrations, you have shuru explanations of the narrations SubhanAllah.
All in English, one of them by sheer luck, and better have a dialogue to either.
So no excuse. These are practical things for you to connect with the messenger of allah sallallahu Allahu Allah was
for those who read Arabic, if you'd like and books were written about connecting, and, you know, establishing firm Eman and unbelief in the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. And this is something
that especially the young Shabaab use, need to be educated with.
For example, Imam Al Al Qaeda, Elon Naboo. Okay, it's a very good book about proofs of prophethood. Or another word by shaker Islam even at me as a more in depth. But these are books about talking about the prophet hood.
The reality of the sending of the prophets, the more desert the miracles that they were sent with.
It's important for our youngsters. Just today, I was listening to a conversation.
It was a recorded conversation and Muslim. Well, he says, you know, he's not Muslim anymore. And now they're asking him why is it that you've made this decision way?
And that is the asking him about
but what okay, what answers were given to you? Because it was he was brought up as a Muslim. What answers were given to you about what it means to believe in Allah? What information was given to you regarding belief in the messenger Muhammad Ali said to Saddam,
and had hardly any information
how is it a Muslim is growing up in a house in a home and doesn't know basic tenants of faith?
What it means what actually means to believe in Allah Tabata Qatada and what it means to have a man and faith in the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, what does that mean? What does that impact not just as a theory knowledge, just things for you to know. But how does that theory that knowledge impact then your behavior as a Muslim?
So, when you say he cannot I will do what you can to stay in
okay is the area right in the middle of Surah Al Fatiha
the most important chapter future recite in your Salah, no Salah except the recite it right in the middle Allah Subhana Allah says iya Can I go do what you can to stain? So when you say yeah can I will do You alone we worship
this is your declaration. You're admitting that oh Allah You alone we worship this is what we believe. This is the knowledge and then when you say he can sustain it ear canal guru, what year canister in a new loan we seek aid means now you will learn we seek help right now you start acting. Now you start acting upon that knowledge that you okay you Allah, You alone we worship. So therefore now you alone, I will ask for help. One simple basic concept of Ibadah of worship, have the knowledge and then acting upon it.
So every time that young Cheb, that young boy, young girl, every time they recite, he cannot do what he can muster in, they know that you're alone we worship, that's my knowledge. I know that Allah is deserving of worship, and that he alone subhanaw taala is the only one I will seek help from when I'm making dua. That's the action.
And this formula goes through everything and you're a burden.
Similarly, with the gods with regards to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, what it means to have belief in Him.
And there are many ways of explaining to that or explain this. For example, testigo FEMA Akbar
To believe everything that he informed us of.
So you need to have have knowledge of what he SallAllahu Sallam taught us
and to fulfill the obligations, and to stay away from the prohibitions in your actions. These are practical understandings and what it means to have Iman and faith in the Prophet alayhi salatu. Salam.
To going back to what I mentioned, about connecting with the Messenger of Allah, Allah to Salam starts by knowing what is upon us how to connect with him, Elisa to Salam, from a knowledge perspective, to know about how people have done it in the past, and how he SallAllahu Alaihe Salam would want to connect with us. And then what for me to do on a daily basis, that's the knowledge side of it, to learn how to pray, something you do every single day, and to know his life. I mean, in such a short time, how much practical kind of homework we can give. So two things, to find the book on description of the prayer, and to find a book at your level. And I mentioned different
levels of the Sierra the life of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam
take these two things away and make it as a form of kind of two objectives and goals that you want to achieve inshallah to Allah in your connection with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.
So I ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us all. And I ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to be guided to follow the true sunnah authentic practice of our beloved Devi, Mohammed Elisa to Salam and to join us all in the companionship of our dear Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Salam wa sallahu wa Salam wa barik ala see Eden and whenever you know Mohammed, while early he was aged man was Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
