And then I went to Vidya sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his his worshipping slave and final messenger. I continue to remind myself in you of taqwa, Allah azza wa jal, which is that we are aware and conscious of our dealings with Allah, especially as we show and deal with each

00:01:53--> 00:02:45

other, that we pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allows us to love him more, to fear him more, and to have greater and greater hope in his mercy. subhanho wa Taala. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allows you and I, to live in harmony within ourselves and within the societies that we find. Earlier today, we had our harmony assembly, in commemoration of the importance of an anti racist anti extremism platform that we have always as human beings and as Muslims. And one of the commemorations that we had was about the tragedy of the Christchurch massacre of two years ago. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to accept those who were fallen and martyred as shahadat and to allow us and

00:02:45--> 00:03:35

then the honor of entrance into genda with our Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I wanted to speak about the first step to harmony, and inshallah, over the next few discussions that we have, I'll speak more about to how to find harmony. One of the things that I want to point out first and foremost, is that harmony does not mean that you have to accept everything from everyone just to be able to get along that it doesn't mean we have to agree on everything, just so that we can respect each other for everything. And as a part of our teaching as Muslims, that it is okay. And especially I want this to be a message for you as a young person, as a young Muslim. It is okay for you to

00:03:35--> 00:04:33

dissent, to disagree with something in the right way to learn how to say no, in a way that is accepted and in fact, praised by Allah and His message messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I want you to know that in our tradition as Muslims, Harmony was never just following along and tagging along with what everybody says. Sometimes the way to harmony is to be an oma, even if you are on your own, and Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam. Allah describes him by saying in Ibrahim Akana, oma Abraham by himself was a nation. He had to say to his father and to his mother, to his society and even to the authority of his land. I disagree with what you have asked, but I do so

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

agreeably. And dissent does not mean this unity or disloyalty. I want this to be something that you govern yourself with as a young Muslim, because there will be times in your life as you grow up, where the people around you may not do what you do may not pray to the Qibla you choose may not wear what you wear, or eat what you eat, or ask

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

acting the way you act, and you disagreeing and not practicing a part of what others do does not divide you from the society you are from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he says to us, better al Islam of

00:05:20--> 00:05:37

Islam emerged and will always emerge as something distinct. Something that has a greater quality in it's something that has a special flavor to what other people may practice or share with each other. For two values,

00:05:38--> 00:05:58

it will return to being distinct, it won't be the norm everywhere that people adopt what we adopted. Back in the day, in the golden age of Islam for hundreds of years, people wanted to be like us as Muslims.

00:05:59--> 00:06:34

Some of the very institutions in sha Allah that you will go on to study in, they get their very concept of higher education from our great great great grandparents. The concept of a university was invented in Islamic lands. The University of Illinois when the University have as hardware some of our teachers have graduated from it, myself, I studied in it. The places of higher learning have been universities for 1000 years. And as her university as a history of 1000 years.

00:06:35--> 00:07:20

I want you to think the robes that you see a judge where, you know, you watch Judge Judy on TV, she puts on that black robe, and she sits and listens to two parties. That robe comes from the abaya. And from the Bish and from the cloak that the llama wore the hat that is given to you when you graduated in year six, and year seven, that border hat where it has that tail and when you graduate, you turn the tassel to the other side and you throw it up in celebration that comes from that mama that their hula would be given and worn only then after they have qualified and have been able to speak about the sciences.

00:07:22--> 00:07:35

The harmony you and I find is not being sheep is not that you become like everybody else robotic and unable to say no. And I want to give you one example due to the shortness of time

00:07:36--> 00:08:25

where a person said no to the one you should never say no to Mohammed Salah How do you ascend them? And I want you to know that even to the prophet who Allah says in the Quran, my uterine Rasool Allah Allah when you obey the messenger, it's the obedience of God, that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah said, that the one who disobeyed the messenger is disobeying Allah. And on that fateful day, I lived at the time, the one who is the grand, the one who is the son in law of the prophets, I send them the one who is destined to be an Imam for the Muslims leading the oma in the darkest of times, the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the first of those who enters into Islam

00:08:26--> 00:08:39

of the first people to say law in the law and believe Mohammed so I sell them the man who laid in the bed of the prophets I sell them to trick the machete keen as the profit made his escape to Medina,

00:08:40--> 00:08:45

the one who loves everything about Rasulullah sallallahu How do you ascend him?

00:08:46--> 00:09:34

He was a scribe and he was writing a peace treaty between the people of Islam Mohammed II sell them and the machete Kim. So hi, let me know who would later become a Muslim radi Allahu anhu he was negotiating on behalf of the unbelievers. And so he lived now he said, let's write this peace treaty Ali you're a scribe you write you write will dictate. So earlier you wrote Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, which we as Muslims begin everything with. So halep Namor interjected me said la are meant to be there like if I believe your Lord is off man and Rahim and all this mascara Mastella now we had no dispute. Change it. So Alinea, changes it to be Smick Allah home in the name of God who we all

00:09:34--> 00:09:34

worship.

00:09:36--> 00:09:58

This is a treaty, a contract between so how you live Myanmar on behalf of porridge and Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at that moment. So I got up and he said if I believed he was the messenger, why do we need a peace treaty? Remove it. And in this moment, Ali or the Allahu anhu said no

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

I

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

Will never erase the title given by Allah to Mohammed Salah Allah How do you sell them? Allah said Mohammed on Rasulullah I will never erase this.

00:10:12--> 00:10:14

He said then there there's no peace we are at war.

00:10:16--> 00:10:18

So the Prophet says to Allah you are the Allah Ha

00:10:19--> 00:10:19

Ha Ha haha,

00:10:21--> 00:10:39

remove it. And Aliya says to the prophets, I send them no panela the one who you can say no to the one who it would be a sin to say no to but in this case, it is a moment of love and dissent does not mean disharmony and disloyalty.

00:10:41--> 00:10:51

He says lai rasulillah Fie deca, Abby, what? I can never remove this title from your messenger of Allah, May my father and mother die before I do it.

00:10:55--> 00:10:59

So the Prophet asks again, and he gives the same response, no,

00:11:00--> 00:11:01

a third time.

00:11:02--> 00:11:22

And he says, No messenger of Allah. So then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam smiles. And the Prophet walks over and he removes it. He erases that table. And he says, right, Mohammed Abdullah, which is also my name, some of the law, how do you send them the mercy to humanity?

00:11:23--> 00:11:54

It's a powerful example of you knowing that when something is right, to be able to speak at times, that which is truth, to power, to be able to stand up for what's right, even when it's difficult, even when pressure of your friends or your family or even your teacher is there. afterwards. It's totally saraha. I will conclude with this theme of Julio Foley hair that was stellar federal law halabi many welcome.

00:12:00--> 00:12:33

Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were bad. So how do you say no, without being disrespectful? Without being rude? How do you say no to somebody who you are obligated to obey your father, your mother Subhan Allah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, latha I tell him I flew female Seattle harder. There's no obedience to anyone who is created when they're asking you to dis obey the Creator.

00:12:34--> 00:12:52

But this does not give you license to show a sound or a look of disrespect. Why do you see that Allah says, well, taco lahoma of don't even make an utterance. Don't even say,

00:12:53--> 00:13:04

don't even make a sound that can be misunderstood, as you being frustrated, not angry, just let down or frustrated or disappointed.

00:13:05--> 00:13:11

And the laws of what Allah invokes in US seeks from us are clear.

00:13:14--> 00:13:55

That as you see in the example of alley, it is your right to not do. But it is not your right to argue it is your right to not perform something unreasonable. But it is not your right to raise your voice or to make sarcastic or physical signs of displeasure. And when we insha Allah go further in our discussions of harmony over the coming week in sha Allah, we this will become even more clear. I leave you with a final message from the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where he says to us,

00:13:56--> 00:14:49

I genuinely unreal movement. Astonishing is the condition of a believer. All of their circumstances have goodness in it. Everything you have good or bad in life, there's always higher in it. As a Muslim, you're always optimistic. You're never pessimistic and downtrodden and feeling that Nothing good can come of whatever situation you find yourself in. And if something pleases you that has been given to you by Allah, you say Alhamdulillah Well, I score Allah, I'm thankful to Allah. And if an inconvenience happens, you are also thankful to Allah azza wa jal, but you recognize that it is purified you have something that was of an imbalance between you and Allah. Three rules to live by.
