Salam ala rasulillah
abubaker is over exaggerating. He's been the pillar of us, and Alhamdulillah. We started with a good team of brothers, who came together with a noble idea of bringing unity among Muslims in Kenya, Africa and in the world in general. And the idea was started last year. And with the help of chef Syed, who encouraged us, became a Patreon. He became the speaker's coordinator. So it was easy for us to get all the speakers and everything in place handled letter planning.
We were a team of about 10 to 12 brothers who grew up over time. I'd like to mention a few of the names I known. Some of them don't want to be mentioned. But it's always good to recognize others as a sign of recognition and hard work that they've been putting over the time. I'll start with abubaker vaca Salim, who is our emcee? He's been one of our driving force
of these five. He is one of our
can do brothers delivers, as always, Eunice the Mr. Fixit,
Mohammed, the money man,
Ali and Khalid, who's in charge of the volunteers has done a fantastic job to mobilize the youth across Nairobi.
We have Hyder a youth himself who was one of our team member from the start because we wanted to make sure we had as many young people or men and women as possible.
We also coordinated with the ladies, even though
I consider myself a little bit conservative, in such marches and Alhamdulillah we managed to coordinate really, really well.
I would like to thank everybody for coming and inshallah make this day a successful day. Sarah Moloch Mark de la vaca
Thank you, brother ugly, especially for saying you wanted us you wanted young people that makes me very, very feel very young. Thank you very much for that.
subnodes our brother, Dr. Islam, Hamad Salim from Mombasa is unfortunately unwell. We asked you to make dua, Allah to grant him Shiva inshallah. So, and we would like to take this opportunity to tell you that we have tried as much as possible to make this event a success and to make you as comfortable as possible. I would like to apologize in case anything does not go as planned. And we have people who are ready to listen and sort out any matter. Please be patient with us is the first time we're doing this. And in case we make any mistake, please make sure that we make it better. Our next speaker who needs very little introduction
is a man who's well known for those people who watch the TV.
Mr. Waseem comes on or other chef was in Kingston graduated from Medina Islamic University and holds a BA honors in Sharia. This man needs very little introduction. And once you hear from him once or twice, you will be able to tell for yourself, what kind of person this what kind of effort this man has done in his life and lay up there other than the messages giving him as a passive is a good example of what some of us can do when we leave here. If you think that you have something to do in your life, the steel time. This is a man who's a good example of what you can achieve in your life when you decide to do
welcome brother was he
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah while early wasafi
I begin In the name of Allah subhana wa Tada.
May the peace and blessings be upon his final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
My dear brothers and sisters, I asked Allah subhanaw taala that he showers his blessings and his mercy upon all of us and upon all of our families, and upon all those who are present here with us, I mean,
I thank Allah subhanaw taala for giving me this opportunity to travel to Kenya,
specifically Nairobi, a very famous and beautiful city
and a loss of penalty. Allah has blessed me also to meet a number of blessitt and chosen people.
And I ask Allah subhanaw taala to reward them all, and to reward or reward all those who participated in making this event possible.
A lot of hard work goes towards establishing such an event. And I asked Allah subhanaw taala to give us patience, and to allow us to benefit over the next couple of days, from the words that are mentioned, from the
guests, and respected Sheikh
Mohammed Salam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Messenger of Allah,
one of the most misunderstood people in history.
Throughout the next couple of days, you will hear many things that are said about this individual.
This man whom every single believer places their love for him,
over their most beloved with them now.
Because it is part of our Amen. To love the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, more than our children, more than our mothers and our fathers and our wives or our husbands.
Because our ultimate goal and journey is based on a lead to the paradise and we won't reach the paradise unless we follow the way of our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Only a person, even if the person doesn't adhere to the Islamic faith,
but for them to know and realize that in the life of of any Muslim, the love of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wasallam peace be upon him
supersedes the love of anyone that they come across in their lives.
Now, I want to begin with a short advice that was given by a famous scholar
hundreds of years ago
and it is this advice that a biological permission, I hope will set a number of important advices and will serve as a foundation for many things, if not all, that is said over the next couple of days.
This man his name is Ibrahim Ibrahim
Ibrahim Abraham Rosa was a person was a very wise man, scholarly person.
The people of his time they came to him
and they questioned him.
And they said, Oh Ibrahim,
Allah tells us in the Quran,
Allah is inform us and they recited the verse, which is in Surah two half in verse number 16 where Allah subhanaw taala says wirkkala buku Komodo Rooney steady Bella COMM And your Lord says, Call upon me and I will answer you.
Very simple. Call upon Allah subhana wa tada and he is the one who's going to answer you.
We have been supplicating we've been calling upon Allah for so long.
However, we have not seen the fruits. We have not seen that Allah has answered our supplications
Ibrahim Abraham but may Allah have mercy upon him, gave him a response.
Until this day, we are mentioning this response. They were living in Iraq. He said oh people of Basra
Oh people of Basra. You know Allah.
However you do not fulfill his rights
that you recite the Quran,
but you do not act according to it
that you claim to love the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but you have abandoned his traditions, you have abandoned his Sunnah.
You claim to love the agenda, but you are not working to attain it.
You say that you
fear you claim that you fear the Hellfire, but you have made your hell yourselves hostages to it.
You keep yourselves busy in analyzing the faults of others. Instead of analyzing the faults of your own selves,
you eat from the bounties and the blessings of Allah.
But you never you never thank him for that.
That you Bury Your Dead and never do you take lessons from their death.
This beautiful advice covers so many things are love of Allah, love of the messenger animal or an take into account of our own selves.
And it is the specific advice that Ibrahim Rahim Allah He mentioned, that you claim to love and be sallallahu he will sell them yet you have abandoned your ignorant and that you don't really know who this individual is.
The famous companion Anasazi Allahu anhu.
stated that the beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
let me know that none of you will truly believe that your Eman will never be complete.
Hector akuna habla la until I become more beloved to that person. Meanwhile at he were well Edie when he marine
until I become more beloved to that person than their father than their children. In fact, all of mankind.
This is a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
telling us that we are to love him. This is not out of arrogance. This is not out of pride. Because you will find over the next few days
that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was chosen by Allah.
Allah subhanaw taala chose him peace be upon him to be the final messenger of mankind. And so therefore he is deserving. He is deserving of our love. He is deserving that we follow him. Whatever he told us to do, we try our best to fulfill it. Whatever he told us to stay away from that we will do our very utmost to stay away from that.
A man he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she narrates the story. She said a man who came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said, Yasuo Allah, O Messenger of Allah.
You are more dear to me, than my family, my children and myself. And sometimes I'm sitting at home.
I'm sitting at home and I'm just thinking that when I remember you,
the love I have for you.
I forget myself. I'm overwhelmed that I would like to come and see you at that moment.
Now for many of us,
because I want to put this into context. Sometimes you hear narrations sometimes you hear yet,
but somehow your heart doesn't feel it.
During a ponder over the Quran, Allah Allah Allah tells us to, to think over the Quran.
The Quran is not there just future just recite. Think about it, understand it, ponder over it. Likewise, these incidents when they happened, a man he comes to the Prophet early so to sell them Yasser Allah, you may look up more beloved to me than anyone. When I'm alone, I think about you, and other law shows you how fearful you are of a law. You're such a great person. I'm so overwhelmed. I just want to be there and sit with you to be in your company.
But then I realize
that we are human being
means that you will die
and that I will die.
And what you put forth for Allah how close you are to Allah subhanaw taala the deeds that you do,
it's not like me,
I am not as close to Allah subhanaw taala as u O Messenger of Allah
and the deeds that you do the actions.
I am not like you yeah Rasul Allah.
So in the gentlemen,
in the paradise, and this is how much that this companion, not only did he want to be with the Prophet sallallahu, if, in this life
he wanted to be with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam in the Hereafter, and he was worried
that the ranks of the most pious the ranks of the messengers and the prophets, they will be at the highest levels of gentlemen, me. I just hope to get into Jenna. Even if it is the lowest I will be happy.
The prophets and messengers they wouldn't be in the highest places. So he was worried, oh messenger of Allah.
Will we not be able to see you? Will we not have your company in the paradise
under bu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?
How does he answer this? Because what he has said is true.
The prophets and messengers on a higher rank, they are chosen by Allah Subhana. As for you and I,
we can't imagine, to be on the run can level of the prophets and messengers, our deeds the sincerity is nowhere near the messengers and the prophets peace be upon them all. So how can I imagine to be with these noble and the best of people and Wu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?
He did not answer him.
He did not answer him. until
Allah subhana wa Tada.
He revealed an area
and a verse that gives us all hope,
gives us the hope to do as much as we can.
And this is the sort of 10 He said,
Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, woman he
and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
am I from those who obey Allah and His messenger? Elisa to serve them? I will try my best for all
for Allah, Allah livina Allahu Allah him. Mina nabin was said the teen was Shahada was sorry, when will Hassan Allah He karateka
and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, those will be with the ones upon upon whom Allah has blessed and chosen
from the profits
from those steadfast people affirm as of truth,
the martyrs and the righteous and an excellent are those as companions.
So really, what does the law telling us here?
What is the meaning of the ayah?
Allah Allah, Allah is telling us, whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
They are those whom Allah has blessed. They were chosen people.
Who are these chosen people, and they've been the prophets was the deity in those who affirm truth was Shahada, the martyrs was solid hain and the righteous people. These four people or types of people are given the blessings of Allah to obey Him and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and what a beautiful companionship. They will have
these four types of people they will have a companionship together in the hereafter.
to shed further light on this, and a safe nomadic rhodiola when
he came. He explained that a man he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just to shed some further light on this area in sort of 10 Desert.
A man he said, Yeah rasulillah and how you can see the companions how much that they were searching for good. They wanted to
not miss out on the blessings of Allah.
O Messenger of a law
matters sir What is the hour? What is the day of judgment?
Now we know that Allah subhanaw taala stole
us in NEMA Aloha, en de la the knowledge of the coming of the hour is only with a law nobody knows it. And maybe your sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew and your will piano is.
This was a knowledge that wasn't given to a Nabi sallallahu. Adamson. So how to answer.
How to answer when is the omit the AMA and W sallallahu Sallam gave him a beautiful answer. He said to him, what have you prepared for it? Even if it is next week, next Friday? Okay.
What are you going to do in the meantime?
That's what is important.
Is the What did you or what have you prepared for it? The man's response was simple. He was all honest and he was open. He said, I am a man who's not frequently offering all voluntary prayers and staying awake at night. All the extra money that I have, I'm giving as charity and all the extra days that I have on fasting I'm a kind of person
I established my Salah if there's money that needs to be given, I give it when the month of Ramadan comes, you know I forced but the voluntary acts the extra x. You know, I don't do that. However,
I can give one thing
and that is Allah and His Messenger sallallahu itis are more beloved to me than anything.
And abuse Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam
gave him the glad tidings and among others,
that you will be with whom you love
in the hereafter. If you truly love and be your soul, Allahu alayhi wa sallam,
you will be with him.
loving him meanings. What does it mean? Is it a statement of the Tung Oil of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam does it mean I'm going to tap and dance and say I love rasulillah
What does it mean to say I love him.
It means that you will put his love what he loved before what you love.
What he didn't like
you would like it.
His Sunnah his traditions. What he advised us of is paramount is the most important thing in your life.
That the moment that you wake up in the morning, you are aware of the advice that he gave to you.
When you open your life, your eyes from sleep What do you say Alhamdulillah Hilda de
All praise is due to Allah who gave me life.
After I woke from the small death which is sleep, and to Him we will return.
You remember Allah subhanaw taala but Who taught you that?
before you make your widow before you enter the bathroom Allahumma inni Rosa we come in and
when you when you exit from the bathroom as a comma Lloyd
when you put your clothes on Bismillah when you enter the masjid, when you exit the masjid when you leave your home, when you enter your home, when you meet your brother when you meet your sister As salam or aleikum.
When you pray,
Who taught you how to pray
and never use a law you send them
some local law to pray as you have seen me praying?
Who taught you to glorify Allah
Who taught you how to praise a law? When you say Subhana Allah, when you say send me a law holy Mohammed in your Salah. It is a Nabi sallallahu Addison Who taught you that?
This is you showing you a love adhering to what he gave you.
Because this is what gives you your identity.
This is what gives you the love the reality of truly loving
and W sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Always ask Allah
supplicate to Allah. That Allah Allah Allah gives you a true sincere love and a real love for our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, really supplicate? Oh Allah give me a sincere and true love in following our beloved nibi sal Allahu Allahu Allah sallam, the greatest man,
the greatest individual that Allah placed on this earth
under the loss of penalty
Allah made you from his oma
and Allah subhana wa tada
made you from those who say Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
This is a great honor, that Allah Allah, Allah that He gave to you.
So be thankful. Be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for that what he gave you welcome Mina, Shakira in, as Allah subhanaw taala commands the believers to be thankful to be grateful.
I want to mention another another story that occurred during the life of our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
When a man he came to the prophet Elijah from asking about The Omen pm when it is an acid, no Malik was present. And he heard the answer. He was a young boy at the time,
maybe eight, nine or 10 years old, really young.
And is used to serve the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to know what the prophet sallallahu is used to do from the morning to the evening.
He got it from himself. He said, you know, under Bill Salalah, who I served him for 10 years. Did you know, he never said to me in 10 years.
He never addressed me in any bad way.
He was always kind to me. True to me, honest with me, fair with me. This is the person that we are talking about.
I hope that over the space of today and tomorrow, that you have more of an insight
that indeed you are a true follower
of nibio sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and that Your love has increased for him.
That what he sacrificed and that what he struggled for,
is something that is in the forefront of your mind at all times.
So Anna, Sati, Allahu Allah. He said, You know when the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, when he made that statement, that you will be with whom that you love.
I love a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and as he said, and he said, I love Abu Bakar. And I love Omar.
And I hope that I will be with them,
due to the love that I have for them, even though my actions and my deeds is nowhere near what they have done.
But I hope my love will be sufficient,
how merciful Allah subhanaw taala is, you may not do the deeds and the actions, but your love of them is sufficient Subhanallah your love for them is sufficient
that you will be with them.
You will be able to see and W sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and say to Nero Sula, Allah, you know, I believed in you, and I loved you, and I never met you. His response to you.
The companions are the alarm and you know how they used to describe the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, when he used to smile.
They said his face was more handsome, more beautiful than seeing the moon
in the middle of the month of full moon University, that full moon, how bright and beautiful is
the face of a Naboo Elisa ceram was more beautiful than that, and that you will see Him and He will say you're a solo I believed in you. And I followed you. And he will smile at you. And who knows what He will say to you? He said
the companions themselves. They had this within themselves that they had a hope, even though that they may not reach the deeds, what about us? What deeds? What do we put forth? compared to these mountains of companions?
What did we or do we have? What we have
is that we can put forth our love
because there are three people that they will never truly never truly taste. Hello, amen. The sweetness of a man Do you know what that means? The sweetness of Amen.
Is it that like you have two or three sugars in your team? That's sweet. What does it mean? The sweetness of a man
sad, the happiness the tranquility, the satisfaction, the pleasure of believing in Allah and His Messenger it cetera cetera. You will never truly taste this or having this level of tranquility, love pleasure
until you have three things
What are those three things? Number one is that you love your brother
or that she she loves her sister, for the sake of Allah,
not for the sake of the dunya not for the sake of money, not for the sake of position for the sake of a law, only subhanaw taala I love you for the sake of Allah.
And the companions that are the line would say that to each other, or have Macrophylla I love you for the sake of Allah.
Number two, that Allah and His Messenger are more beloved to them than anything else. And thirdly,
the after Allah subhanaw taala, guiding them, and saving them from the Hellfire that they would hate to return to a state of disbelief just as much as they would hate to be thrown into the hellfire.
They recognize and know that froehling Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the only way that they want to follow
this is the only advice The only commands and prohibitions that they know that will take them to the paradise.
Know that NW. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was chosen by Allah.
Allah Allah Allah chose the best human being for us. So your love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
shows that you truly love Allah as well.
Because Allah subhanaw taala wanted the best for you by choosing the best of messenger
May Allah subhanaw taala instill the true love of a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in all of our hearts and in the love in the hearts of all of our children. And may Allah subhanaw taala protect us from any fittin for any danger that may come to our hearts to divert us away
from reaching and meeting our beloved aloha mommy May Allah subhanaw taala Forgive me, forgive us all and have mercy upon us all. barakallahu li como de como lo hara wa sallahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
What we're going to have is a brief question and answer session after every talk by one speaker. The order of the question and answer is we're going to have three standing microphones. One is right in the middle of the ladies, one is on this side, and the third one is right at the back.
We asked you to cue to the nearest microphone with your question. In case you do not want to ask the question, please tell one of the volunteers nearby your question and they will ask to your behalf. We also request to try to keep your questions relevant to the discussion the speaking is hard and to keep it as precise as possible so that all of us can benefit by asking our questions and getting a proper response from the speakers.
I need any volunteers near their speakers please?
sisters, you can also maybe look for a piece of paper and write a question a piece of paper and hand it over if you feel you cannot stand up and ask questions
or requests requests you have one position for for the questions so the microphones are moving around and people can keep
up the law but
the question is, I would like to know how to demonstrate to the local property owners
Hello How do you demonstrate demonstrate
love, but how do we demonstrate that love?
smilla The question is that how do you demonstrate your love
for anime sallallahu alayhi wasallam to demonstrate to show
part of our love
for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is to outwardly show,
to outwardly show that your love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is evident not to prove to others, but there are certain things that you do certain actions that you do, which show unusual Allah jell O Allah, that you are prepared at times to make a sacrifice.
For example, in how that a man or a woman will dress or how they will behave in terms of manners and characteristics.
So, the more you know about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, because in itself, how to demonstrate your love is, you know, is is a lecture.
first of all, it begins with with knowledge for you to know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If you don't know him, la Certosa them, you can't possibly show and demonstrate your love for him.
So the more you know about him, the stronger bond the stronger that love that you will have.
So therefore, you will maybe want to sit how he sat while eating.
You may want to eat how he ate.
There are certain aspects of dress that he would dress Elisa to sell them
and most importantly
because wearing clothes, anyone can do
is to have an I would focus on this specifically My dear brothers and sisters, is to focus upon the Hallock
the manner and the good character of an abusive alcoholic.
If you focus on this, this will be one of the reasons not only will you be able to be with a Nabeel Elisa them because of Yamaha before him.
But you will be from the closest of people, the closest of people to the Prophet Allah so to set him the day of judgment has said
those who have the best manners,
the manners of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam distinguish him from any person, so determines demonstrate your love for him
is to know his manners, his mother's manners with a larger Laila in his worship,
his fear and his open his trust and his manners with himself.
How he would be firm upon himself in worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. The furthest away from having a bad tongue,
no swearing, no cursing, but having a good tongue, a soft tongue
and interacting with others with a good manner, I think is one of the best ways that you can demonstrate your love for the Prophet la sasaram in following his manners, and in his characteristics, and Allah subhanaw taala is best.
Do you have a question from the sir? Please?
We have written questions and also oral questions. So we'll start with the sister. She'll give an oral question and then I'll read the written questions. Okay.
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
My name is Samson Asad. I'm a mother of three. And my question to chairperson is to start with on his lecture, he clearly stated out that Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the most confused messenger on this app. And that is proven by what is being done all over the world through the the Amina in the magazine. They put him as a cartoon and they moved around with him. So my question to Brother we're seeing is how do Muslims react on this? chakra?
Just to clarify, he said, most misunderstood, not confused.
That needs to be Yeah, needs to be clarified. Yeah.
The individual himself, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is misunderstood. I think that was the intention, of course behind the question.
He's the most missed, understood individual
in modern times.
Now, this isn't something new by the way. It's not something new about, you know, people may individuals, minorities, it's not everybody. There may be some people who's who dishonor
or attempt to dishonor.
Fundamentally, let me tell you one thing.
You and I may apply for a university, or we may need a job, and I need a recommendation.
I need a recommendation. So I go to my former boss, or go to my teacher or my Imam, our chef, and they write me something called Ischia. When you write me a recommendation, saying so and so is a good character, he's trustworthy, they'll do a good job for you.
Maybe it's true to some extent. However,
I never knew sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam has a recommendation from Allah Allah.
When Allah subhanaw taala said, we're in Nicola Hulu in alvine.
Oh, and NaVi, you are upon a great character.
If Allah subhanaw taala honored than the vehcile Allahu alayhi wa sallam, there was none to dishonor him.
No matter what if the entire creation, tried to lower the status of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam never would they be able to do that?
Because Allah Subhana Allah to Allah on it, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam number one.
that if unfortunately, people tried to dishonor
and abuse Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, then they will carry that responsibility, the responsibility on the day of judgment when they meet Allah subhana wa Tada.
This isn't something new. As I mentioned, this has been done through centuries, through the crusades, in the 10th, and 11th and 12th century, 1000 years ago, the Crusades used to try to dishonor that Mohammed peace be upon him and his followers, they were barbarians, they eat you that
it's nothing new.
It's nothing new. However,
the Muslim needs to react in a way
which is befitting
a Muslim reacts in a way which is befitting with wisdom. Don't just act on your emotions, because of course, it hurts us. If somebody says something towards your mother,
or your children, how do you feel? It's an insult to you.
Now imagine, as a believer, as we mentioned, and the VA system is more beloved to us than all of them. So to insult him is, is worse than somebody insulting our own mother.
So I hate that somebody would insult me like that. Even if that person he says my intention is not to insult you, or no problem with you.
That's irrelevant what you think. Let me tell you what is relevant as the insulting and the V allegedly is insulting me.
That is the reality.
But how I react is that the most upmost importance,
do not react. Or don't lower yourself
to how they would speak to you by you cursing and swearing back to them. And asking,
if you like,
with posters off of their head,
we need to get rid of that this is not how to react.
This is not how for us to react. You need to react in a way which demonstrates and shows wisdom
that the Muslim is not going to be somebody who just has always a knee jerk reaction. When the media decides that let's just write up the Muslims for a couple of weeks. Let's put something in the news. And you see Muslims behaving in a way which they lose themselves. And then they calm down for a while. And then they feed the media again with something else. And then you see the Muslims. It's like somebody's got a joystick controlling the Muslims for something in the media and you just see them jumping around and crazy and shouting and screaming and
it doesn't demonstrate or show any hikmah and in any wisdom in the reaction to that. Rather There are many ways that you can respond to this.
Because then insulting and the VOA said to Sam has no weight at all rather respond, respond in a way which we know how Allah Allah Allah has honored him. And we honor him as well Elisa to serve them, by speaking, making clear who this individual is, who is this person.
And the last thing I want to mention on this bill monasterboice panela, that just a week ago, there was a conference. And even before that, actually, there was a person who was against Islam, against Muhammad. Allah says, Sam said many things which I have been below, some of us would never dream of saying,
the person embrace Islam. That person embraced Islam just a few days ago, his son embraced Islam. Subhan Allah, this isn't something that maybe you read from 1000s of years ago.
Maybe you believe it, maybe you don't. This is something happened in our day. Now. Somebody was an enemy of Islam, said something very bad about the BLS or something, but they embraced Islam, Allah guided them.
So if a person is confused,
that they are making such statements, show them what they're missing out on.
Show them what they're missing out on.
do we still have the written questions? Please just read them out quickly. There are a lot of questions about
our way of demonstrating the love of prophecy.
What are the questions?
About amen? A lot of questions came in? What is the highest status of Eman?
And how do I attain the sweetness of problems?
How do you know that you love someone for the sake of Allah?
due to strain of time, we'll try and answer those questions that are relevant to the discussion. And all of the other questions, we'll try and answer them whenever we get the time or if the relevant discussion is protein. So please bear with us, we will try as much as possible to answer all your questions.
Yes, we have a question from our brother, who recently converted, he says, If I only used to throw two factor have no prayer is accepted.
Do we have another question? Yes, we do. Yes.
There is a parent here. She says, If I raised my children through.
She says I raised my children through the sin of Apostle Allison. But now they've grown up and I don't see them looking like Muslims. They look like non Muslims. What do we parents have to do about that?
Should I just repeat the questions? You can pick the one?
one of the questions from the ladies was how do you attain the highest, you know, high status of women? The other one was how do you show the love for one another in the sake of luck? The third question was about the raising the children. Yeah. And one question about the Father.
I'll try to be quick, with alerta.
Alongside the last one first,
which is a 50 question. But as somebody newly embraced Islam
and the learning the prayer, they learn the movements, you know, stand up then bow than straight learning authority. The opening chapter of the Quran is is very important for you. Now, if you have only memorized that, while you're standing, you recite that and then you do the short statements in the rest of your prayer then your prayer is valid within Allah. Because the recitation of a 30 high is one of the pillars of the prayer. reciting other chapters is something which is voluntary for you. Okay, if you didn't do it, then the praise valid, malice pantalla keep you steadfast. And may Allah subhanaw taala increase you in knowledge, I mean,
and the Rio sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said at EMA new
Eman is 70 and some branches and is sometimes 73 or 74 branches. Allah had the highest of these branches is the Illa Illa Allah to understand what this kelemen means, what it necessitates How do I act upon it? This is the highest level of emotion to understand an unemployment upon La ilaha illAllah.
As for how do we show our love
for our brothers, our sisters, our last pound Allah tells us in the man moon
Allah established subpanel to Allah
brotherhood and sisterhood between us, which is a great blessing for us all.
And never use Allah who is and then showed us how to establish this brotherhood and sisterhood.
When he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, let me know
how to tell you, he might have been enough said that none of you will truly believe until he loves for his brother or loves his sister he loves for himself.
So you have something.
But you would love that your brother or your sister would have that before yourself.
You become a selfless person,
that you would love that your brother or your sister would have that before yourself. This is one of the ways that you show your love for your brother or your sister. Likewise, in another authentic hadith, that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam gave us a number of advices that we do not deceive, we do not cheat. We do not forsake our brother or sister.
We never abandon them. If they need our help, we help them
if they need advice, we advise them.
And it is these practices practical, practical, practical advices that we can do every day.
I receive a gift, I like this gift. I want to give it to somebody for them. You give it to them. What did I do to deserve this? You didn't do anything. But you my brother, and I want to give this to you as a gift. Or you are my sister, and I want to give this to you as a gift. Can you imagine that this was a society that we lived in selfless, we give to one another? Because as you give
and other people have the same thing can you will receive as well.
We have one more question, which is what makes our Eman weak.
The strengthening of mn
and the weakening of mn is something we accept
somebody who just embraces Islam.
Is that person even as strong as the amount of Abu Bakar? Or the amount of Omar or earthman and Ali rhodiola? I don't know is not.
So imagine it fluctuates, it goes up and it goes down. How does it go up? It goes up by you worshipping Allah. Quite simply. The more you worship Allah subhanaw taala, the stronger your Eman will become but isn't it? It's like when you go to the gym. You want to you know, workout your muscles. You have to become stronger. You need to weights build yourself up. If you stop doing the weights, then your muscles become weaker.
So if you stop worship, you involve yourself in harm. And don't ever be a little harder. harem. Don't is a small sin.
Because I never use Allah Allahu
Allah tongue Ruru several copy. Do not look at the smallness of a sin. Yes, there are big sins. Yes, there are small sins. But what do you like to do within business? Okay, I haven't committed any big sins. I just, you know, involved in the small ones. No.
Don't look at the smallness of your sin. Wha kinome Guru Illa man
rather look at the one whom you've obeyed Allah subhanho wa Taala
you will do you just obey the law whether it's a small sin you disobey the law subpoena.
So stay away from the Haram
stay away from things which will weaken your Eman.
Anything that is haram? Anything which causes you to take you away from the remembrance of Allah subhana wa tada that there may be a danger for you. While LaHood to Allah, Allah.
I think we, this is the first question and answer session. And in the next one, I hope we'll be able to limit the questions to the discussions, because this is just the first discussion. Some of the discussions are going to speakers are going to come and answer the questions or rather address the issues that have already been discussed. I would lie
maybe, I think question and answer time is, is done. Maybe we can
Okay, maybe just one
My name is Abdullah
personal hearing impaired
how do we strengthen our love for profit and Hammad? Especially the dis and
from the, from the childhood?
Can I request that we give the speakers a chance to come and address this and if late in the day or during the discussion that is not addressed? Please, I will make sure you are to get a chance and the question will be answered. This is a venue to answer exactly that question. So, please give us a chance, we'll try and answer you. But what I would like to do now is tell you that this is the first tape of agenda. We're going to take you on a journey, a journey of faith.
And the first step is we did we chose the topic, the love of the prophets of Allah, Allah Salah. We are going to tell you why love profit, how is it linked to you man? And I think she was seem did a very good narration to that.
Question will be as
Santa Monica, I feel bad that he asked the question, I don't answer it.
It was a general question. However, there was one specific part to it, which I believe is very important. And that is that loving in the face of somebody instilling that from you know, and having that from a very young age.
It is very important when we teach our children
that we make the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam something real,
okay, he needs to be real.
It is not something which is abstract and like a theory that they don't understand.
They need to be described, told, this is what he used to look like. How many of us know what he saw last time used to look like?
This is how he used to eat.
You know why I sit like this? My daughter must know why I dress like this. Because the prophet Elijah has taught me and then you teach it to your children. So the example that you're you're giving to your child is a very real example.
It is something very real as though they can touch it.
That when they are questioned, why do you do this? Because mine Nabi sallallahu Sallam taught me this. And is that portion of the question that I think is extremely important
that when your children they are taught to love and to be a source of them, it needs to be a real example a living example.
A May Allah subhanaw taala protect all of our children alarm me
