I
last week Subhan Allah we spoke about love and love that leads away from Allah.
And the natural outcome of a believer is one of surrender and submission to a lot. And almost as if a second part to last week's discussion is the necessary discussion about what it means to truly be one who claims
And who practices Islam? know that there is a difference between the word Islam and the word Muslim? And the aspect of what is Islam was a question put forward to our lobbyists on the law to us lm in the famous hadith of gibreel. The hadith of Abby Huff's remarkable Fatah, Brody Allahu anhu. He said, we were sitting with the prophets, I send them all of us have heard the introduction of this hadith. And a man with very white clothing entered into the, into our area, His hair was well kept and dark. He didn't look that like he had traveled when I added for I had none of us know him.
And yet this man came in and with such conviction and with such confidence, entered all the way and sat right in front of the Messenger of God, peace and blessings be upon our interview. So I sell them and asked, What is Islam? The prophets I send them enters the question that our youngest students here would enter and say, that we declare with pride with conviction with belief, the Shahada, the testimony of faith, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Muhammad Rasulullah, that none is worthy of worship but God and that Muhammad is His Messenger, applying your messenger of God sallallahu I think he was sending and to establish the five daily prayers to establish the fasting
of the month of Ramadan, to give us a card when we have attained the wealth that is over the amount where it is necessary to pay on it. After one year of it being in our trust, and to perform the Hajj. May Allah returned us again if we have been And may Allah take those of us who have not been to Hajj to stand upon the plains of Africa and have their do I insert a love them. I mean, the five testimonies and pillars of faith are known as a mum that the ruler just by you being a Muslim, it is knowledge you have.
But there's a separate question that at times we don't ask, which is what makes a person a Muslim? When the Prophet is asked, Who is a Muslim? He doesn't respond to the law. Why do you assume that by saying a Muslim is the one who says a shadow
Rasulullah he doesn't say a Muslim is the one who prays five times a day or fast the month of Ramadan, or gives that guy or goes to Hajj. Rather, he says, and Muslim men Saleemul Muslim Muna, mainly Sunny, he was
one who is of those who gave themselves to God who surrendered to Allah who submits to God. It's not that they've kicked a checklist of things which they will do and must do, but rather that those five pillars of Islam have shown in their life and effect. And the effect of your Islam shows in you and I
being very careful in how we treat other Muslims.
The prophets, I seldom said a Muslim is the one who other Muslims are not harmed by their tongue, or by their hand by their words or by their actions. Now, if we want to stop here, our non Muslim neighbors, they would object and they would say, Hey, this is just you know, Muslims, you only take care of each other, where do we belong? Where do we belong into the scheme of things? So the next statement is jabril asked the Prophet as if it is the next step of faith. Well, if that's Islam, what is he man? What does it mean to be a believer and the puppet says, and docman Billa that you believe in God when he came to be he was in Amman and the angels and the scriptures and the
messengers, when the only after that there's a day of judgment today, you've accountability, while other highly he was hungry, and that fate governs our lives, it's good and bitter is both equal and given to us from God.
But if you were to ask and when the Prophet is asked, what makes a person a believer, he separates between a man and when he's asked, Who is a min he says, a lot men men, me now who nurse, a believer, the effect of me believing in the one true God, the effect of me accepting that there are angels who record my deeds, who are witnesses to what is in my heart, the effect of me having a scripture that I follow and that I recite in practice, the effect of me believing in the messenger and following as soon as I sell them, the effect of knowing that the day
of judgment where I will be asked
about the large and the small the good and the bad
The sooner and the bigger the effect of it my Eman
mcminn a believer men me no nurse is the one who all humanity and nurse not just Muslims, the one who all humanity find security England.
I mean I will not ask Allah and wily him what I'm putting him that they find security over their property over their wealth and over their life and person. So panel
debrief, then ask the third and final question in this section of the heavy Well, what is it? What does it mean to be of the elite righteous worshipers of God? The prophets I send them summarizes it very simply and says that with a marker NACA tala is that when you are in living your life in the worship of God, it's you do it as if you witness him, you see him in your life, what inlanta kuntala? Who, who Yurok, although you do not see him in this life, you know, with 100% yaqeen and reality and certainty that he witnesses you in all affairs? What is the effect of Yes, and it's not now that I'm just good to Muslims, and also non Muslims. But I'm also good to everything in the
environment, the prophets, I tell them he says that.
If you're going to slaughter, say, a sheep or an animal,
treat the thing that you're about to consume that you're about to take it like with your son, do this act as if a more is witnessed to you as if I was with you. How would you treat this animal? With what degree would you show it mercy in the way you would want a lot to show you mercy. And I want you to see the three cascading effects that for us, Islam is not just a system of practice.
That the Salah that you and I stand the moment we stand in a few minutes and I lead you and I say Allahu Akbar. That word it's not the word that begins so that haphazardly. It's not one we chose. It's one dictated to us. Allah orders us to remember it that the adanac called it begins Allahu Akbar, your Salah begins Allahu Akbar. Why? Because from the very first moment
that you stand before your maker, your judge, your provider, the one who gives him the one who takes the one who honors and the one who humbles The one who blesses and the one who restricts the one who pews and also the one who allows illness that you recognize in all of your affairs, Allah is greater than Oh.
And if that is true, then how I deal with another Muslim as a Muslim to Muslim must be governed by that word, Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater than me.
That my words must be true, my behavior must be measured, even the intentions of the heart must be correct.
The two last verses
of Surah Al Baqarah, are considered a treasure from the treasures of a law given to the prophets a lie son. In the Hadith of the prophets, I seldom said who cheat, kinsman min tattle, I wish I was given a treasure by God Almighty, from that which resides beneath the man of the greatest treasure is found in existence. Are these karate in the last few verses of surah? Al Baqarah? What is the context of them? Allah Subhana Allah says to the Sahaba to all of us
that Allah knows what we do and what we keep in our hearts.
And the moment the Sahaba they heard this, they said, Our
OBE or Luna or messenger of God is gonna judge me by my thoughts, what I think about others and do, they immediately thought that Allah will hold them accountable for any negative thought they have about others and each and every one of us in our day, whether two loved ones or enemies we may have thoughts that we're not proud of. We don't want people to know we thought this of them or of ourselves or our sins or other things.
The call to a job to messenger of Allah, what has been revealed to you is something we can't live up to
La is going to look into my heart and hold me accountable.
So the Prophet responded lol equisetum had you not said, Robin Allah to Allah don't hold us accountable when we make a mistake, or when we forget,
should you not have been thinking of a more in a more merciful way than just to assume immediately Allah will punish you. So Allah reveals these two verses to the Prophet Mohammed Salah I sell them that he says to us, that these last two verses of the second chapter of the Quran Surah Al Baqarah, that the one who recites them with a need capital, they suffice in everything, that it helps health, it helps prosperity it gives
In every capacity that you seek Allah through these verses, you will find a solution to the problem. And Allah begins the last verse of Surah Al Baqarah, by saying,
by saying to us now you can live from love who Nelson Mandela was, I will never burden you in a way more than you were built to withstand. Some people they misunderstand this.
What this means is, is that there is nothing in Islam that is upon you, my brother that you as a human being cannot do.
There is no scene that you're not equipped from repenting from. There's no mistake that you can do that you cannot come back from and say you're the took to like our life come back to you.
There is no injustice that you've committed that you cannot find a way to redeem yourself and others through it. Seeking the pleasure of Allah lay you can be for Allah who Enough said he knows nothing in our faith. Nothing in our arm is too difficult to practice. So why do we find it difficult to submit?
The essence of Islam
A slim to wedgie. I give my whole being to the one photo similar to the one who put all of existence in its first instance. Islam, falsely at times is described as just peace. Islam, it means peace. No. Islam allows you to attain peace. Through that one step of submission. As a husband, you submit to the laws of Allah in how you deal with your spouse.
As a young man, you submit to what Allah asks of you in regards to your parents. As a brother and sister, you submit to what Allah allowed and doesn't allow to find balance and happiness and peace. Were in its place was animosity or dissension. And nobody strays away from the path of submission. Nobody makes their own rules, their own lifestyle, nobody chooses their own way, at the rejection of the way of Allah and finds happiness at the end of the road, because you cannot change the fabric of reality.
What do I mean by this?
You and I, at times we see somebody who will get away with a crime get away with injustice, they manipulate reality, they change the fabric of reality, and everybody sees the change and continues head on with it. Pharaoh would do it, a Buddha would do it others they change what is real. The Prophet describes some of the times that we begin to see today that the Day of Judgment shall not come until you live through center were to have bad days that will be deceptive.
You stop the Kofi halka Zoo that the one who is truthful where people will assume they've lived where you can the Buffy has saw them and the one who is truthful. People will say don't trust them, the one who is unworthy of being trusted and believe people will trust your terminal heart in your home women Waterman, the one who is treacherous will be trusted and the one who's trustworthy will be seen as treacherous. Everything will be the reality will be changed.
But only for a time. Eventually reality snaps back. So Pamela, some of us we experienced this in our life. Some of us in a moment of our life. We did something we thought we got away with it. Something had a loss, and we live life and then down the road. A year, a month a day. 10 years.
Like the brothers have use of
10 years. 20 years later, they thought their brother was gone and everything reality was changed.
My father, no he died. Here's the blood on his shirt. Everything is sealed, everything is forgotten. And then reality that was hidden, comes back.
It comes back in our wealth in our health. It comes back in our children, our grandchildren, it comes back in our prosperity in our risk or denial love it. For no one has ruled in the kingdom of Allah. Allah Lehman in Mongolia, who has the kingdom, Lila, it is only a month. Nobody owns anything in this world. And the moment I in you, you and I under understand this, we begin to submit to Allah.
One of the members of our community a few months back, he passed away.
And I remember I went to the aza in his house. May Allah Subhana Allah have mercy upon him. I just remembered him as I'm speaking to you today this very instant, may Allah make it a reason for mercy to descend upon him and like to fill his grave allotment and this is Alhaji Hussain Aqsa Cole. He used to be the president of the Turkish magic for over a decade.
And he passed away and I visited his home and his family. And as I was sitting there, outside his garage door, on the inside, where you enter into the home, he had a large bookshelf that had all of his shoes lined up
to Panama, he just passed away. And I remember sitting there after reading some photo and and giving a little bit and I'll see how I remember my life is focused on those shoes. And I thought so Panama, look at all of the shoes that the brother owned, but none of us own anything. We hold something for a time for others to take after.
There is nothing no wealth, no health, no relationship. Nothing that you have that you say this is mine that cannot be taken from you by others or by the decree of Allah. And the moment you and I understand this, the word Allah, Allah is greater begins to make more sense.
I slim to Linda.
You no longer hold on to things so tight.
That when they are leaving you, you feel lost, that cannot be replaced with something else.
May Allah Subhana Allah fill our hearts with Islam submission to him, surrender to Him, acknowledgement of him, and allow it to show in our behavior in dealing with each other. May Allah Subhana Allah make us of those who are movement believers in him that it allows us to treat others Muslim and non Muslim with fairness and justice. And may Allah make us from those who are missing, that everything in the world reacts to us in a positive way because of our positive approach to it. Allahumma Ameen. Otherwise stuck through law had all the money went to
Al Hamdulillah, he watched the whole Salatu was Salam ala nabina
Muhammad Ali Abdullah
I wouldn't be here sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was one who lived life with that greatest knowledge of Islam. And the thing that made the prophets of Allah How do you sell them the one who is worthy of mention up until today that our prayers when we mentioned Allah, and praise Allah, they are always joined with our love for the prophets, I send them that you will not hear a person who truly says not is worthy of worship, except God. Except there must be the second equal statement, Amina Mohammed and that Mohammed is His messenger who taught us about him Subhana Allah to Allah. And one of the most difficult lessons that we see from the life of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
is that anything that we love in life becomes a trial for us in life if the love goes beyond what it should be? The inner meaning of profit Yahoo losing his son use of Ra Salaam is because of love
the brothers when they conspired against us in Urbana, our Father, he loves this one more than he loves us.
When you hold on and when you covet and when you love and when you seek to protect and do anything to stop something from happening, the resultant value of it
is the robot tests to see is he more valuable and important in your life or that object
thing that he created and allowed you to falsely assume that you have dominance over the aim of the shaitan is to make us deceived about that ownership reality of a lot. That trade on once you and I may Allah protect us to believe that actually we have a permeance and an ownership that extends beyond the dominion and the knowledge and the plan of Allah. And Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, do not follow the steps of the shaper for heat seeks to take you to a place Li of we are coming to deceive you and make you distracted from that reality for Bassano kaleo Hadid when I was speaks about our return to Him, He says it is on that day that your eyes become clear. And you see the
truth for what it is that the ownership is only Linda he Arambula and me. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah means as followers of our interview, Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam limits our injustice upon each other, correct our affairs that makes us from those who submit to Him and surrender to Him and understand that he is manly can monkey with generally when a crumb, the one who has all ownership and all power over all things, and know who they are how we know enough with lavilla that there is no mind or power or ability or turn, except that which is given by Allah and that Allah subhanahu wa to Allah is the sovereign alone is Maliki omit Diem, I pray that Allah
subhana wa tada makes our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more beloved to us, in our hearts and in our expression of it in our actions than what we seek from others. Allah whom I mean, I pray that Allah protects our school, our staff and our students, our parents and our teachers, that Allah subhana wa ala leads our principal and administrators and board to that which is pleasing to Him, protects us from all false houden sinfulness that Allah subhana wa tada opens to us the doors of higher even if we don't assume them to be so and that Allah protects us from the doors of shadow even though we mistakenly thought it was good for us.
