masa you didn't ever you know what you ma'am a slightly here in Mohammed Abdullah Ali Abdullah Saleh mo Tasleem always we begin with the praise of Allah we send our prayers and peace upon our W Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam we testify that none is worthy of worship of Allah and that whenever yes Allah Who are you SLM is worshiping slave and final messenger. I continue to remind myself always and you with Taqwa Allah azza wa jal, and I pray that Allah subhana wa Tada makes you and I from those whose hearts are alive with an increase of love for him with an increase of fear of him. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala balances our love and hope and fear of him with hope, in His mercy
that we receive in this life and into the next life. Allahumma Amin What a beautiful day it is to spend with the Prophets Allah Azza wa sallam. Those of you who a few hours earlier were with me we were speaking about the suna diet of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And once again we have an opportunity to celebrate our love our devotion, our Eman in Rasulullah sai Salim and I want you to hear that word, our belief in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as Muslims, we do not simply just believe in God we do not believe just in Allah. Allah subhanaw taala he tells us levena You
Luna villa, there are those who believe in Allah. When Allah Ekati workqueue to be wa Rosalie and the messengers of God, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for us is the epitome is the highest, most exemplary, exalted standard set for humanity. There was something I was watching. There was a, you know, an influential commentator, who speaks about a variety of different issues. And he said that Carl Jung who's one of the most influential psychologists, philosophers, I guess, of this modern era, he said that Western doctrine always has this one deficiency, it always has this one problem. And that problem is, is that they constructed their philosophical standings, their
philosophical view of the world, the world order and view on the Christ on Jesus, who they presumed was, you know, the Son of God and other things that they believe about him that as Muslims, we don't believe. And then Carl Jung, he goes on to say, but in that construction of Jesus being the one who is the reference point, there is the underlying failing, that he was not complete in his humanity. Now, the argument of many Christian Christians who have gone into a path that strays from the monotheism that you and I, as Muslims and Jewish people adhere to, is that they believe that God made Himself into a human body, to share in the pain and the experiences of human beings. But of
course, the nonsensical part of that is and that's what Carl Jung points out, is that Jesus died very young, never was married, never had children, didn't have a father never fought war, never experienced what human beings experience, never grew old, never fell ill never had those kind of things, that shows himself him to be as a standard for humanity, to assume and to adopt in their behavior. And therefore, it becomes a great failing, in the scriptural sense, if Allah Subhana Allah to Allah doesn't complete the message. And that's how the prophets I send them is described, he is TMM would be not he is the completion of a splendor building. You know, if you were to build this
incredible castle, and everything is perfect, but the prophets I send him says, but there's one foundational stone that's missing. And every time somebody comes and looks at the castle looks at it, they say, Wow, what a beautiful structure, but it's missing this thing. It's missing this thing that would complete it would make it perfect. What an utter mammal, and I am the completion of the structure of prophethood. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what makes him so special, is he experienced everything that you and I could ever imagine,
would face us or we pray we would never face as an experience in life.
So in every capacity as a son, as a grandson, as a husband, as a loyal friend, as a brother to others, you know, so many different ways that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was human, in all capacity. One of the most beautiful Hadith of the prophets, I send them experiments and mahadi the prophets I send them lead prayer. And after leading prayer was the prayer of solitude to us, he could sense that some of the Sahaba felt something was different. The prophets I send them you know, asked what was what's different so one of them said, you have a suit Allah, should we now make our all sort of prayer five, but I because we take the source and the essence of our worship, from the
prophets, I send them so the Prophet inadvertently mistakenly had prayed. I sort of five raka instead of four that we've always prayed. Now the Sahaba because they understand when I tackle more Rasul, whatever the prophets I send them has come with, you know, take it from him, pass it on to him. It who Nebbiolo, me follow that this unlettered prophet who isn't teaching himself who's being taught by me hold strictly to what he has come with my daughter in law Ha, what Rasool the one obey is God in the messenger for hula, if they will be the ones in the highest levels of, of paradise. So our whole system of reference is to adopt his methodology. So they asked, Should we now begin to
pray at five times five or aka the Prophet I sent him said no, they said, Well, you
Let us in five rocker so the prophets I send him said main to do this a sack. And then he says this golden word. It's one of my favorite statements of Rasulullah sai Salim. He says in nama Anna Basha, I am nothing more than a human being and sack I'm at 10. So, I am prone to forgetting certain things as you are prone to forgetting certain things. So Allah Allah said,
what an ink what an incredible statement. I'm just like you. I've been touched with Revelation, I've been delivered from evil. I've been taught the best way of life in the Drina, in de la Hill Islam. I've been shown that the greatest way of thankfulness to God of living in this life is submission and surrender to him. I can model that behavior Candela confy Rasulillah. He who swan has an example of the Messenger of God to you is the most complete example as the most complete adaptation for your life. All of that is relevant but I'm a human being. And what separates Muhammad SAW I send them from Jesus what separates him from all of those who came before him is that he seals and complete
the favor of Allah in total Mati that Elio macromolecular, Kadena come on this day the day of had you the final Hadith of the prophets I send them I come I completed your religion for you or commanded to come Dina come we're at remember Alikum near mighty I've sealed my favor upon you by sending you Mohamed Salah Allah and He will send them Sallam and by vowing to maintain and protect and to safeguard through the usage of you my creation, my human creation who believe in Him and adopt his way protect this final message.
Muslims are very strange people.
You know, I can walk into any house in the month of Ramadan from the North Pole to the South Pole. As I come to you. I come from one of the southern most tips where human beings live in Perth, Western Australia, way down south in the west of Australia. If I swim out there's nothing from here but the end Arctic, right? That's it Subhanallah
and whether your north south, east or west, you walk into a Muslims home in the month of Ramadan, you walk into a Chinese community masjid, you walk into a Malaysian Masjid. You walk into a masjid in in Finland, you walk into a masjid in Iceland, which I did you walk into any one of these masajid. And in the month of Ramadan, somebody is going to give you a date. And you look around you and you're near the Arctic Circle way up in Norway. And you're wondering, Why are these people giving me dates because they value Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he broke his past with dates. You in the middle of the Arctic will break your fast with dates Salalah holidays and not just
you will fast, not just your pray that we pray not just you'll do that. And as he taught, even you know the simplest of things sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is from the vow of Allah, that is of the greatest honor for us all sigh Salem, never are you going to hear anybody have trueness of faith who will say La Ilaha in love LA. I bear witness and vow that none is worthy of worship but God except that there you completion to that sentence completion to that thought that belief is Mohamed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And that's such an honor for you and I it's such an honor that we eat with our right hand and not our left. It's such an honor, that as Muslims, we
value the simplest routines of Rasulullah sallallahu we'll send them and hamdulillah and led the medina Illuminati Mohammed Al Hamdulillah, who led us to Mohammed II Salim Al Hamdulillah, who opened our heart to receive the message of Rasulullah saw I sell them when we find light and others remain in darkness. When your heart is open, even but a smidge even just a morsel of Eman that it makes you worthy for the dua of the prophets. I send them near the grave of the prophets I send them there's this beautiful Hadith.
It's you know, calligra FIDE in his masjid, it says whatever Cefa it. Let me cover in a minute Almighty, my shafa will be given without a doubt to even those who have committed atrocities, but they have retained and kept their belief in the message that I have been sent with sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no one will be turned away from the prophets I send them except the one who turns themselves away. And I want to begin with this introductory video because we're
Talking about coming close to Mohammed I sell them being close to Rasulullah engender, begins by you being close to the Messenger of Allah in this dunya the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said
Kulu Mati yet hallucinogen, the hadith of Lima Muslim, all of my people, all of my nation, all of you, mankind, that have come towards me well enter paradise Illa except men ever, the one who refuses themselves entry, the one who rejects and says, I don't want to go
for Kalu maniac by rasool Allah, the Sahaba were astonished. They said, who would, in the right mind, refuse entrance into the heavenly paradise?
For fraud and abuse, I sell them then apply, I mean, indicates of himself he doesn't say men apart Allah. He doesn't say the one who were obeys God or worships God, He says, The one who devotes himself the one who follows my instructions, blindly accepting of what it is that I have come with as the truth when it is referred to them as truth. The one who receives that which is known as an authenticity authentic statement of mine, and holds on to it values it puts it into practice, the one who receives the Quran through me and adopted as their life, the one who obeys me unconditionally definite agenda, they will find a way to Paradise woman assignee,
and the one who willfully intentionally choosing li one tingly, purposefully disobeyed me. altars for me, removes themselves off my path for ever has asked for themselves to be not admitted to Jenna, may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from this Allahumma Amin.
The step to jedna is not entered through the gates of Jenna, in the next life. You enter Jenna in this dunya. And that's what the scholars would say. They would say, you know, I certainly some of them will tell you me would say there's a Gen net in the dunya that unless you enter it first, you cannot enter the agenda in the Asheville, Pamela, there's a paradise that exists on this in this world. That unless you were a part of that paradise, in the here and now you've structured your life that you live a life of as if you're in paradise already. You won't be of those who can enter the agenda in the next life. What is this mysterious paradise? Is it a place or a location? No. Is it a
land that you sit in? Or a place that you travel? A residency that you establish? No, it's a mindset of semi Anna Akana. We heard we hear the word of obedience to God. And now we adopt and model ourselves to it. Allahu Akbar, Willa Hamed.
How valuable to us is Mohamed Salah Allahu Allah, you will send them our and how negligent we are in our return of this fever back to him SallAllahu and he was sending in all of our relationships, it must always be two way. Right? Our relationship is not one that is ever unilateral. Any positive relationship will require that there is given take, there's something you receive, but there must be something you give and everything has a cost. And every time two things come in contact, there's a trace that's left between them. So anytime you assume that you seek something from Allah from SW Mohamed, they tell them that there is some blessing you seek out or something you're asking for
something you want. There must also be something that is given up in its place, something that you give forward towards it. And therefore it's such a heavy emphasis is placed on the importance of admin of actions. One of the things I think that Muslims at times don't dwell upon his belief is Eman.
Eman by definition, faith, by definition, is not built on a completion of knowledge. What do I mean? You know, when you say I believe in something, the underlying context is that it's something that I have adopted as an accepted truth in reality for myself and others.
Believe it, even though it's evidence may not be clear to others. So I believe and anything you believe in, you've been informed about it to hold that belief, right? So you believe that your parents are your parents, because you've been told you weren't there a conception you weren't there along the way. And unless you've established it through paternity tests, and so on, it's on account of somebody telling you and even if those tests are done, somebody analyze it, and informs you of the results. Believe is already through something revealed to you. It is not always self evident. And it's not something that everybody else must hold. And that's what makes faith and belief so
Belief is not necessarily built on knowing and understanding everything for me, then to submit to it. And I think one of the things that is a direct assault, and a direct way of trying to weaken faithfulness in humanity in general, but amongst Muslims in particular, is to try to undermine the conceptualization of faith. How do you believe in that? You know, you can't see it? How do you know? How can you be sure, right.
And by definition, faith is not about being able to substantiate it, by holding it and saying, here it is, now you could see it for yourself. And as for us, especially when we live in the times of illusion, we live in the times of deception. We live in the times of deep fake videos, we live in the times of seeing hearing things that are made to seem legitimate, but actually aren't. We live in an era of fake news where something can be spread from one point note that it saturates the world. And nobody ever really knows or verifies it. We believe many things.
When it comes to more hands on Allah, who it was some of the most inalienable rights of the most important right, is that we accept belief in him in what he received, and what is verifiable from him, with out any variants in our heart. Without any
equivalency in our heart, with any weighing it out in our heart, it comes to a point where because we have accepted faithfulness, that we believe in Him for who He is and what he brought, and how he lived. And he shared the truth with us, that even those things that are not clear to me, are not things that I say I put my faith on pause, until I reconcile them. Rather I maintain in faith, while continuing to resolve that which may trouble my faith I used to come to the prophets, I send them with questions. Right, they would say you're really applying the hobby, they will come to Jesus and say, you know, invoke God to bring down a table spread from Heaven, to kulula. Now he that we will
eat it and celebrate it. First what my inner Faloona we will know then you even greater evidence that you are who you say you are this great messenger of God, the one who was sent to lead humanity, even to Jesus. As you know, in that time, even after seeing him bring the dead to life by the power of God, bringing you know the healing to those who are blind and deaf and mute by the power of Allah, even then they still ask for more. And therefore belief is not something that is transferable to others on account of just simply saying, I believe you believe in not just about building knowledge alone. It requires one to suspend in their heart doubt, and to have an imbalance a great
belief in God and His message I send them even when things aren't clear, the structure of the Quran is meant to lead us to this example. Allah subhanaw taala gives us letters in the Quran in surah that are intentionally ambiguous.
Kath has ha yeah I inside and if lamb meme and if lab meme saw and if lab me ma saw the cough thoughts seen meme
all of these letters, disjointed letters, no one human being can tell you definitively what the letter means or the letters mean or the combination of letters mean and it's meant to say it's as if you look at the Quran. I believe in the Quran. And yes, there are things in it I don't understand because there will always be an idea that is unclear minimal as to mahkumat who know multitap some verses are clear they are the majority of the book that are easy and build your faith on it. And others wish to be had with a shabby heart. Other verses are ambiguous that rip
acquire people to teach us about it and others may never come to its realization as a Muslim your belief in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam becomes that thing that draws you closer to Him and to believe it increases, not through sitting and study, but through acting upon what he was sent with. And that's very important, you know, an Eman Yazzie do with BA it increases by doing good deeds. Now why is that important? They're in a matt damon say an Eman Yazzie. Do Bill curl our Allah Well, kita Eman is going to increase the more you read, write and study. No. It's not only that, that's part of the deed. But he man increases when you adopt the methodology when you walk the way
when you put your foot where he put his feet. When you make your eyes he made your eye where you seek protection from what he sought protection, where you bar yourself and restrict your desires from what he said was prohibited. Even though your heart inclines to it, where you refuse to invest in something lucrative that will earn you great investment, return on your investment. But it's sinful. It's a great business to get involved in selling liquor and, and nightclubs. And but no, no, no true believer in the prophets. I send them with adopted. Why? Because that's something that you know, in his counsel, he is forbidden upon sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that increases your Eman.
Eman increases when you battle your soul against that which the Prophet forbade. It is where you battle your soul to do more of what He taught. And that's the secret of that hadith we begin, begin with men apply. I mean, amen. I mean, let me be the one who act in accordance to what I've taught. The one who puts into practice what I've been sent with men apply that men apply the the one who obeys me, even where it requires blindness to what I've been sent with, even if they are unable to logically assume it, they are willing to adopt it. You and I, you know, if we were to seek a logical progression, if you were to sit in a debate, and someone was to say to you prove to me that pork is
any more dangerous than lamb meat, a lamb chop and a pork chop, prove to me on you know, this is taken from a fridge that you know prove to me why this you know from a science perspective or from you know, whatever is should be deemed immoral, sinful and edible. And this is allowed.
You and I we never get into that conversation. The reason we don't eat pork isn't because it has a particular bacteria or virus, which it may, which it may, but that's not the reason. The reason is very simple. Allah said, and Muhammad taught Salah Hadith. And that's it. That is what builds the map by you saying I would never eat bake. It doesn't matter how delicious it is. It doesn't matter how many people around me eat, it doesn't matter if it's the only meat that's there, I'll find another source of protein of another source to cite myself unless I'm in a state of debt. I will never eat it one because Mohammed said so I'm taught through our prophets of Allah Hardy was seldom,
none of the science matters. None of the logical understandings is of any importance. The only thing that matters is color. Rasulullah call Allah Allah said, The Prophet said, that builds faith in Allah and builds faith in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we do not mainly merely believe in the prophets, I send them that he was a true historical figure who lived in seventh century Arabia. We don't just believe that he was somebody who called himself a prophet. We don't just believe that he had this book or scripture that taught to others. And you know, he defended what he believed to be the truth. Rather you and I believe that we were ordered, obey Him, in that which he was sent
within that which we know is the truth, in the little as well as the great things in life Subhan Allah, Allah masala now Muhammad, why do you
believe necessitates obedience, and in believing in Muhammad? So I said, and in following us, eventually we believe in the one who said and, in fact one of this, you will rarely hear the roadmap of the past, writing books about proving God, you know, proving God's existence. What they would write is proving the legitimacy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam della illimitable when others why because, you know, belief in God was self evident, intense. Everybody had that sense. And those who disbelieved in Allah in general, they had a belief of
something else. Why was it it was never about proving God's existence? It was about proving Mohamed Salah How do you sell them was sent with the truth because if you believe in Mohammed, then the one who sent him is there than the one who sent him and the promises he made are true. And therefore the attack that comes against Muslims is not about belief in God alone. It's not about believing in the Quran, it's about the character, the nobility, the trueness of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And therefore Muslims are very possessive, very
consistent in their love for us was very intolerant to change when it comes to the legacy of Muhammad so I send them you and I as I said, will still eat dates you know wherever we are in the world because of our love for also as I sell them, and that will be a reason to be gathered with them in Jannah. Allah Ameen May we have dates with him in Jimena to fill those Alma Amin on account of our love for his sunnah and tradition, legacy and way of life.
To obey the Prophet I sell them is an extension of our belief in him which is a proof that we believe in Allah. Allah subhanaw taala says to us in the Quran, whole enquanto Boone, Allah azza wa jal tell them if you truly love God, then follow my example.
Then follow me it's not that follow the phoron follow me which is the one who brought us the Quran through him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the significance of Rasulullah so I sell them as the stepping stone of belief in Allah is the same statement that says that as much as we believe Christians misunderstood, right, I have no problem saying that Jesus is the way is the light is the path. Yes, G is the way his son that his way, he is the guidance, He is the path to God. That doesn't mean that I believe that He is God. In the same way we believe that about the prophets I send them we call assume that the word soon that means the path that is well traveled, because it is
what's known to lead to goods. You know, we are the OMA, yet Morona been our roof. That word my roof means it comes from over what is recognized as good. We are the ones who call people to what everybody universally believes to be good things, prayer, devotion, family ties, good dealings with our children, spouse, husbands, mothers, wives, fathers, we are those who believe that cheating is immoral and sinful we are those who pay what is due when do we are those who do not cheat others by Miss labeling Miss describing in business and trade. All of those are the highest ideals of a Muslim. We also are devoted to God in our heart and try to show it in our action. That's called yet
motivated model we command people to what they know is good way and how not and in Mancha. We are the people who forbid others from that which everybody recognizes, is Moncure is something to be condemned the word Moncure means neck and you know, it's condensable it's not something that should be done.
It's not something that should be entertained anyone. So when we say don't do this, it's not because it you know, in the heart of humanity, if they look deep, they would see that this is a no more in morality, to lay oneself display your nakedness to share one's into fantasies with others, to follow the drunkenness that we forget what we say and do to be vulgar and rude and lewd in our demeanor and behavior to take what doesn't belong to us to injure others with words or our hands. All of that is Mancha. That's the basis of our lead. You know, we it is what Muhammad was sent with sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is what is meant blah telling us to adopt his path
to emulate his example, following the sooner you know, to be on this soon now, does not mean to do anything extra ordinary, that human beings do not value. The Sunnah of the Prophet. He said Lim is really the epitome in the balance of what it means to achieve Completion in our humanity, to in our systems of love, and, and embrace of our habits of righteousness in our dealings with God. To say that we follow the path of the prophets I send them is not in active examples alone. It's meant to be mindset of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the mindset that you and I have as human beings, is that the the love of Allah
is what leads us to follow the example of the one he sent us. And to follow the example of the one he sends us increases the love of Allah for us, which increases our love of God and our that is interchange between us. Allah tells us in the Quran, the one who turns away, for suna of the prophets of Allah, who it was the one who leaves the path of the prophets before him. You know, when my yellow hub by miletti, Ibrahim, the one leaves the pathway of Abraham, which is the path of our Prophet Allah tells Muhammad so I send them you know what's good. Steadfastly follow the example of Ibrahim. So Allah said, the one who strays off it meaning strays off a path, which is the path I've
ordered Mohammed to be upon the 11 Sophia NAFSA, except one who's an ignoramus who was belied and before themselves a false sense of security. They're leading themselves to a place of sadness and destruction, because they have left the path of righteousness, and morality. And the overall objective of relativa of following the prophets I send them is that it is a holistic approach, not one of picking and choosing. And sadly, for many of us as Muslims, we like to pick the ones that are kind of relevant or easy enough for us to follow. And we find it difficult to, you know, adopt the ones that are a little bit more challenging. So everybody's great, you know, yeah, I follow the suit
and I got a beard. But you know, when it talks about, you know, where the Sunnah is to adopt a humility between you and your spouse, that's a different story, where the sooner requires you to pray in your night prayers. That's a different story. The things that are outward and seen by others are easily adopted, but holding deep inside the values of the prophets, I send them become a stumbling block, we honor the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam seeking to be closer to him. And as we honor the Prophet isole, and what I mean by honoring him is that we have a love for him through a devotional practice of His way of life, that goes beyond the emotional love. It's not just
to say, in my heart, I love the messenger of Allah, you know, I could see him I wish I could visit his mosque. And, you know, when I see a picture of his green donut reminds me of him and, you know, in in Mila doll, you know, I'll mention the profits are think of Rasulullah, so I sell them and things like that alone. Those are all things that can be condemned bubble and bendable. But what we mean when we say that we honor the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that we're taking steps to add more of his lifestyle in hours, every day, we're trying to come closer and closer to the ideal examples, which means we need to learn more about him. And you know, that's where you know, this
program that I'm presenting to you today, I'm inviting you to, you know, I've recorded 16 hours, and then there's, you know, 510 more hours that we will do live, speaking about the property settlement, it's called the Prophet smile, through negative. And, you know, why do we speak about a Sierra? Why do we speak about Shiva? And why do we speak about his wife? Why do we talk about how we walked or dressed or how we taught or what his leadership style was? How is it relevant to us? Well, the closer we are to him, the more we learn about what we can do better in our law that can help us full greater in love with him. Because you don't fall in love with somebody you don't know. Unless it's a
delusion love. You know, you can love a cartoon character. You can love a character in a movie. But that's not real. It's imaginary. It's fictitious, and Mohammed. So I said LEM is not ever meant to be affected tissues, character of devotional love. He's meant the one who it's as if he walks with you and your life. And I regularly say, you know, what would the Prophet recognize of your home of your life of your family of your work of your business of your study of your general demeanor of your private moments of your public moments? If you walked with you? What would he know of you in looking through your, you know, Spotify? What would he recognize? What would he condemn? What would
you be ashamed of him to see? So I sell them that you say, I'm, I'm on one of your followers, yellow school, Allah, I sell them and then he sees you in that group, in that clothing in that habit in that using those words being in that area of concern. Those are the kind of mindsets that kind of begin to raise our attention. So the more we know about the prophets, I send them in a contemporize way and I
I think one of the things that in setting up this program that I found was important was how do I how can I be on the sooner? How can I follow Muhammad Sallallahu I do sell them. And I'm living in this technological world and facing into three or four cameras on live with people in Malaysia in different parts of the world. You know, what's, what's the relevance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in my life to say, well, the principles of life are powerful. The principles of his, you know, his diet, his sleep, his word, choice, his articulation when he was quiet, you know, you can, there's a whole session that I do about the silence of the prophets, I send them you know,
the quiet of the prophets, I seldom is actually a legislative matter for us in our faith. There are things that the put was quiet about, without condemning it and without praying. And there's a category of our Islamic laws that deals with that, right? You know, part of his sunnah is the things that he observed and didn't condemn, and they they are seen as being permissible, although they may be disliked, disliked by him. So Allah Hardy was sending the Sahaba used to, you know, go further, it's tough for you and I to do that, right? There's this amazing hadith of Agnes, idiomatic, or the Allahu Anhu. Now, and they said, No, Malik was a young man, his mother came with him to the prophesy
setting. She said, O Messenger of Allah, I want my son to learn from you. Can he follow you? Can he be your page? Can you be like, you know, someone who carries things for you? Who is your assistant? Prophets? I send him said, yes. So and it's from a very early age, he was always around the prophets. I said, lemon, you know, interacting with him. And Anna says, you know, whenever I would sit, and the Prophet would be eating, I saw that one of his favorite foods, was pumpkin soup. And he used to like the pieces of pumpkin in the soup. So we were eating from the same, you know, large bowl, many of us were, and I could see that his eyes were following Salallahu, alayhi, wasallam,
they were following a piece of pumpkin. That was kind, so you know, I kind of pushed it towards him. So I sent him you know, I kind of led that pumpkin towards him. So that, you know, he could have it, so nobody else had it. And, and that's sort of the Allahu Anhu he has that, you know, I saw the prophets, I seldom enjoy it. And although I do not like pumpkin, and it says, although I don't enjoy eating pumpkin, I saw that the prophets I seldom enjoys pumpkin. So I began to enjoy it, I forced myself to get a taste for it, to begin to eat it and enjoy it and to, to be a part of that experience. So on Allahu alayhi wa sallam. So that kind of shows you the mindset that the Sahaba
had, that they would try to bring themselves into a presence with a messenger of Allah to bring themselves into the attention as if the mess in your villa so I sell them was apart much from them. And after the death of the probably sell them, and as would favorite eating a pumpkin, he would favor sitting with the Prophet sallallahu it was him his favorite foods, and he would reminisce about him. And you know that as a part of our fav eating pumpkin is not considered as soon that unless you do it because of your love for the profits love for it. So NS receives a reward for eating pumpkin, not because it's a pumpkin, but because he ate it in love of the Prophet eating some
of the lasagna send him such a pat, imagine having a reward for having pumpkin pie, right? All of you guys who missed out in your Thanksgiving kind of things that happened in the US and Canada. Right? You know,
that mindset brings us closer to him is what will bring us closer to him in gender. Of course, the opposite is also true. And the opposite is something that I'm terrified of, and I pray that lots of adults that makes all of us terrified of it. Is that Yes, a boon and number eight is that people do something thinking they're doing right righteousness when they're not. And the definition of Buddha the definition of religious heresy is that a person does a religious action that masquerades that mimics a religious teaching in Islam that is in from Islam, that they do something that people when they see it, they say Is this Islam? Are they doing something in the name of the Prophet, but it
isn't from the prophets of Allah and he was selling them. And by so doing this religious dition they actually push themselves further away from the Prophet sorry, settler, and that can be in belief, in words and in actions.
One of the scariest hadith is the Hadith of the prophets. I send them
where he says, as on the Day of Judgment, I will kick Nuys you, by the marking of your will do you know, a whole lot more Hi, Jenny. So your face and my, and that's where we get the word we'll do it from right law speaks about we'll do it speaks about falou I wash your face, but the word will do you know it, foods to both illuminate light, it's like you're laying up your face your arms, right? Even though the Sahaba Abul Hora or the Allahu anhu, when he made make will do away from others. Nobody was watching him, he would exaggerate it, you know, he would go all the way up to his shoulder up to his calf. And then one day somebody spotted him doing that from a distance. They
said, you know, what are you doing? And he said, If I knew you were there, I wouldn't I wouldn't have done this. Because the sooner that is clear, right? We it's only up to your elbows only up to your ankles. But I did this because I heard the one I love say that the effect of your will do will be light on the Day of Judgment. I want to I want it to be a lighthouse, right? So that was his that was his only Chad for himself not as a teaching to others.
Then in one BYU in one narration, the prophets I send them says so on the Day of Judgment, I will identify an individual, I will see someone
and I will say to the angels who are pushing that person away. Enough who mean it that man that that person, they belong to me. They're from my nation, they're from my Alma their mind, people. Bring them you know that person is mind.
And they will say, in that category Na, remember, you don't know what these group of people did as a as a heresy as a new, newly invented matter in religion after your department. Now in this hadith, there's so much G in it. First, it establishes that the prophets I send them is disconnected from those who after his death. Did you know The Prophet isn't like how the now there are some people in beta I say that is always a saint. We don't believe this. If he was this he you know, how did it How does that make sense? A prophet is not given, you know, knowledge of the Unseen and knowledge of these things from a distance. So a lot. So the Prophet said, you know, curse be them.
You know that those who changed my way after my May they be cursed, push them away, then keep pushing them away. And these will on the Day of Judgment. Instead of being invited forward to the prophets, I send them instead of them being brought and summoned closer so that they can receive drink from my co author. One of the punishments of Buddha is that we'll be left thirsty, and they will not be from the first to enter into the agenda with the Prophet Mohammed. So I send them they will not be from the first group who will enter they will receive Eve is shefa. Eventually, anak of these mistakes, they can redeem themselves, but they will not elevate it in their regard, they will
not be of the first and closest to our V. Mohamed Salah Lara, your settlement Allah protect us from this era. So be on guard against heresy. Be on guard against teachings that are not from the prophets, I sell them and are not rooted in assuming of the prophets. I said, the regulator you have people you know, they'll say through Tegile, but through you know, my shares, he tried out different things and he came up with this now in potential ABA isn't something that's condemned, but it's not something transferable. So might be in my own self, that I have a particular dua that I make to Allah Subhana Allah, but I'm not going to share it with you because it's not something authorized by
the proctor itself. Doesn't mean that I can't make it. Of course you can make you can make your own dua Allah give me a shiny red car, whatever you want your drive, just limited in that regard. But at the same time, you do not say to others, you make this drive, it'll have this effect. It'll give you this it'll do this for you. That is not of the sunnah of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and leads us away from receiving greater and greater good. May Allah protect us from this Allahumma I mean,
I want it to end so we can have 10 minutes or so for questions and answers. By inspiring myself in you with three easy sooner that we can adopt three easy sooner that we can adopt that will enliven our heart and love for the prototype. First is recite the Quran in the morning and in the evening.
You say all shouting, you know I mean, take a moment as your day is about to begin and deliberate
Please recite from the Quran, a selection of verses that are something to begin your day with. And end your day by reading something from the Quran. Even if it is just solten Fatiha, even if it's just a little courtesy, but make it with the intention that I'm following the habit of the prophets I send our OMA is in a deep difficulty because we are disconnecting from the Quran and it's one of the complaints of the prophets I send them in sort of for fun, the prophesy Salim said, well, Carla Rasool Yeah, in the call Makaha or anima. And the prophet that messenger of God, he called out to his Lord, he said, Oh my lord, Oh Allah, my people, my nation have taken this Quran but I've turned
away and abandoned it may Allah protect us he may Allah forgive us. Yato number two, pray the two raka before fetch, and Salatin with every day of your life, pray the two o'clock I before fetch, and the three of wit before you sleep. Each and every day. I showed the Allahu Anna she says
that the prophets I seldom would never cannot die. Yeah, die. We'd never ever, ever, ever, ever leave the width of the prayer left you suffer in one, whether he was in travel or at home, whenever he said he didn't wanna whether he was healthy, or whether he was money, Sufi SallAllahu it was him. He never ever, ever abandoned it. There are only those two soon as that are prayed as a regularity as a pseudonym or akkada of the prophets. I seldom when you're traveling the Turaga before fragile and
the width all the other Sooners are suspended he wouldn't pray them so I said you would pray other prayers as you wish but it wasn't the 12 rock as soon mo akkada right. Number three. So we said first begin your day and end your day with readings from the Quran. Number two, pray the tour guide before 5g And the three raka have with even one record with before you sleep. Number three sooner you can adopt easily is that make as a part and parcel of your life? A consistency of sending your Salah and salam upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad Ali Mohammed you know you forgot something Allah Allah Sangha Mohamed, you're going to start an exam
Allah Allah Allah Allah Mohammed.
You're feeling unwell Allah wa Sanjana, Mohammed, Mohammed, be regular, be regular in your Salah and send him you should never let a day and night go by where you have not made or offered. 100 saw that those will have said we would count and that they would say we will count ourselves hypocrites. If we had not mentioned Mohamed I send them at least 100 times in our day and night. So increase your love for the messenger SallAllahu sallam. The more you mentioned him the more you grow to love him. The more you grow to love him the more you practice his way, the more you increase your devotion and adherence to the path of righteousness and truth. Allahumma I mean, I ended by making sure
I ask Allah Subhana Allah to add up to make you and I from those who are followers of the prophets, I send them in this life and into the next. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala adjust our life through the lifestyle of the prophets I send them that our pain is healed through his sooner that our illness is removed through following his way that our love life is increased with happiness on account of adopting his methodology that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada amends our broken hearts through devotion and Sunnah of the Prophet lights and that we become from those who are followers of him in that which is difficult as much as that which is easy, that Allah subhana wa Taala makes us from those who earn
his shefa through our mention and practice of assuming that in this life, may Allah Subhana Allah Allah raise us in his rank on the Day of Judgment, give us a drink from his co author his pond of water, in the Day of Judgment, it's sweeter than honey more fragrant than must wider than milk and its cups are greater than the numbers of the stars. May Allah subhanho wa Taala quench our thirst in it for the one who drinks from it never goes thirsty again. But Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to be from those who are fatigued in the dunya always understanding that we are in need of the Majesty of Allah of the generosity upon Allah. Allah upon us even if we are wealthy, may Allah subhanho wa
Taala humble our heart so that we follow his path in the simple and in the adventurous Allahumma Amin while suddenly love man was celibacy to abetik Allah say you know whenever you know Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala early it was like you send him was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
Is that Milan?
Yeah. Company. So let's move for our question and answer. Is that okay? Yes, my brother.
Alright Sharla so for all the questions just in case on the viewers asking where to ask the questions, you can put your questions at a pigeonhole. There is a link that we have been on the top of the chat box and it is also
on the screen so you can put your purchase there. Inshallah we have at the moment, we have two questions in Sharla. Yes, yes. I'm going to read those questions also, on the screen Shala.
The first question how can I be close to
Jana? Even if I had a woman?
Yes, absolutely. Subhan Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
in Jeddah Twinfield Phil DOS, the worldly constructions that you and I have are different to what is found there. So that loss of habitat it tells us in sort of our off that anybody who enters Gen net and as an MF useful duty him in material that removed from their heart is any animosity, any hatred, any jealousy, any sinful desire, any ill intent towards others. And therefore, a motorcar begin you know, you and I will be meeting and meeting and facing one another. I love Subroto Mota. RVD May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us the company of our Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sent them
to the second question in sha Allah, if there is no questions from the audience, it seems that we only have two questions from for today inshallah. Odisha. The second question
the Sahaba of Allah so
the when they describe was last Salah Eden smile during the year of the sorrow after the death of his wife, Khadija and his uncle
reports related to this hobby.
So I've never heard this hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't smile, what we refer to as I'm a husband, it is a month of sorrow a month where people, not just the prophets, I send them felt sadness. So the grief of the prophets I send them couldn't be seen as human beings we are never ever meant to be, you know, saddened in such an extent that we cannot also enjoy moments of happiness. So there will be moments of the prophets I sell them being happy, even in the month of sorrow. But when you reflect on that year, on the on the year of sorrow, you would characterize it and remember it as a year of sadness, where the prophets I send them lost his wife lost his uncle
Salalah I do sell them on the Allahu Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his daughters were ill, there were people who, not just them who would passed away, there was a lot of, you know, difficulties that were experienced and famine and austerity and people who were married were intentionally divorced, so many different things that brought sorrow. This doesn't mean that there were not moments of levity and joy and comfort in Allah and the believer, especially the prophets. I said, lead is one whose condition is always how you
you know, not because a person experiences sorrow, that they don't relish and enjoy higher the goodness of the life and higher Abeba where one is secure and feeling safe in the in the love of Allah subhanho wa taala, even when challenged with difficulties in life, may Allah Subhana Allah heal us and assist us and protect us from harm Allahumma me.
it seems today, we only have two questions
from the audience. No, I got a couple of questions here in sha Allah, so on some of my social streams, and there was one sister actually, who was saying she was wanting to register for the course, but she couldn't afford it herself. And I want you to know, sister that unmeasured, it doesn't turn anyone away, just on account of them not being able to afford it, perhaps there's something else that you're able to contribute, or some other payment option that you are eligible for. There is a method of scholarships. Also today, there is an exclusive that's offered for the next 24 hours that you know, limits the fees. So kind of go back, go into the website and apply for
this scholarship. Describe your situation, from my understanding, nobody's ever turned away in that regard. So may Allah subhanaw taala increase you in good and I look forward to having you in the class in sha Allah. There's a
Another brother who sent a question asking about
prevention of suicide, especially with somebody who's not feeling well. And that's a question. I think that that that's kind of important. For us as Muslims, we recognize that one of the greatest sins that a person can commit is that they despair in the Mercy of Allah. And that not out of, you know, mental health issues, but not out of illness, but they make a decision within themselves that I've given up on God have given up on life. And that is something that is some that has its punishment at the time of death and into the next life, may Allah protect us from this. So understanding that is one of the important things number two, is to recognize at the mercy of Allah
subhana wa, tada is great. And whatever problems that myself you or others are facing, or those who you know, about are facing. And sometimes, you know, you're asking about a friend, you're asking about a son or a daughter, know that it requires intervention, and it requires somebody asking them, how are you feeling? Are you thinking about that, and to actually literally ask them, that takes a great deal of release from them, that they could say, you know, I was thinking about that. And that be that requires you then to take a very quick clinical approach, you don't leave them on their own, you make sure that you take away things that could be of harm and danger to them, that you don't
just ignore that. And you don't just say, in sha Allah, you know, make this do it. This isn't a spiritual problem. It's now a clinical problem, and could be a clinical mental health problem. So it requires experts. So you would call the suicide hotline, you would call people to directly intervene. And it's not something that myself and you handle on our own. It's something that's handled by trained specialists, and we sit with them until we find a way to assist. Number three is to be from those who are in the part and process of helping others recover. Subhanallah as Muslims, we're really good at giving advice, but we're not really good at sticking around to have that
advice. Make a difference. Sadly, there's many of us, you know, we're very good at giving advice, Oh, you shouldn't have done that. Or don't do this or do that instead, or buy this or do that, sell it now, it's better for you to sell. And after they after you give the advice, you walk away, and you're not there to help pick up the pieces, help them dust themselves off after falling, right becomes important for those around us to become a catchment and to become a security blanket around us into the future. May Allah subhanaw taala use us for good. And that was one of the things of the prophets. I send them there was one of the Sahaba who lost his son. And he was so depressed, and so
overwhelmed habits and epsa who he locked himself in his home. He never ate, showered, drank, prayed, never came out of his house. When the Prophet heard of this after a couple of days, he knocked on his door. He went to visit him he went to sit with him. He committed himself I'm here I'm not going to leave you. Nobody's gonna be left behind. And that's a sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we do not leave people behind. May Allah subhanaw taala help us and use us for good Allahumma me
from our side here, okay, there is another question chef Salam aleikum. You have any recommendations of books where we can reflect and relate to have one seller most in order to have this practice? Yes, absolutely. Look at you know, even behind me here, I know, it's a little bit of shameless self promotion. This is a book that you know, many people Subhanallah found a lot of value in it. And it was built from some of a lecture series that I've done tearful moments from the life of the prophet I sell them makes the prophets I sell them much more real. Because you see, there were moments of vulnerability, moments of sadness, moments of sorrow, moments of happiness that brought him to
tears. So Allah, Allah was sending him. So I do recommend it. Even though I'm the author, I do recommend it for you. It is something that I believe will be a value in sha Allah, I recommend the program that I'm teaching in that program Subhanallah
that that is starting, that you can enroll in the Prophet smile. It's not the CEO of the prophets, I sell them in the way that has been taught, you know about, you know, moving from one place to another in a historical sense. Rather, there's a section on it the teaching techniques of the prophets, I sell them teaching our children as the prophet taught children, leadership for a corporate life, the balance and boundaries of the prophets. I send them in dealing with agitators.
and hateful people, you know the sooner of dealing with toxic people, even if they're family? Have you ever thought about the sooner of the prophesy sell them in how we dealt with Abu Lahab? Is Uncle right? There's a sooner How do you deal with a family member who's toxic, who's hurtful, spiteful, all of these are things that you find, you know, in that program. So I made it into a very contemporary kind of retelling of the life of the prophet I sell them. And you know that the struggles of the prophet Isaiah, the beauty of the prophets, I seldom the man of the smell of the prophets, I send him the perfume of the prophet Isaiah, all of that, I believe is is of great value
in sha Allah, and I do recommend it to you. The book that I prepared for it is a substantial book, it's its own re it's its own reader that goes beyond what I'm teaching. So I've always kind of set that up that I want there to be something that you read that goes even further than the discussion that is being had. So I do welcome you to join in that Insha Allah, if you want something that's a little bit more
orthodox, or a little bit more, I guess, just Hadith after Hadith after Hadith, the Shema in of the prophets, I send them the Shema, remember Timothy is a powerful powerful book, which is the substance of this book of this presentation, the prophet smile that you can see through a Muslim dot online. Do join that and join it in sha Allah I think you will find a great deal of value in it be the light to Allah and never died online insha Allah and the Prophet smile or just google the Prophet smile or on my social media, you'll find links to it in Sharma
and I think this is the last question sha Allah, there is a question on YouTube shares is working to the bank organization is considered for
because of the river simple. What's your thoughts about those kinds of general questions I tend to stay away from there's jobs in a bank that are Hollandaise jobs in a bank that aren't. So if you are in doubt, and if you're looking at what you're doing in the bank, and it's something that your your heart is, is not at ease with it. Sit with somebody who is a trusted
person of knowledge, and sit with them and explain your role. Explain your circumstance, explain whether you can find another job in this pandemic environment, explain to them everything and have them find for you a solution or recommend for you departure from it. But I can't answer that kind of question. Not all bank jobs are haram. I'm a teacher some of it some of the duties of teachers can be held on nurses some of their duties can be held on no job is without question that there will be something that we have to be extra careful with extra thinking about in how to manage it. Not just simply Halal haram there's gray within it and there are things that we can use to mitigate those
kind of dark spots to make it brighter for ourselves and our families. Insha Allah may Allah purify our risk, turn us towards halaal May Allah make that little in our wealth? Feel greater than what is great in the hands of others Allama me
does not come JazakAllah head it's a pleasure and an honor. I look forward to being with you guys again and shot love to see you soon in Malaysia but in the light to Allah Subhana Allah Mohammed Tikka shadow Allah Isla Hotlanta South Africa to Boulais salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
