Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah Hamza sharechat in WA Salatu was Salam ala l mursaleen Sayyidina. Whenever you know Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Sengupta, Sleeman Kathira it's a pleasure and an honor to meet with you once again your brother Yeah. Hey Ibrahim coming to you live from my home here in Perth, Western Australia, to your homes wherever you are around the world through the wonderful vehicle of Islam channel. May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah reward all of those who have set it up and assist in its growth a lot Amin as is normal each and every Wednesday at noon London time we take an opportunity to join together for
Islamic q&a. This is meant to be a session where you phone in live and we're able to take your calls live on air in sha Allah, seeking to assist each other in that which is pleasing to Allah azza wa jal always we begin with the praise of Allah we send our prayers upon our interview Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we do so in particular, in these blessing final moments in the month of Rajab were in the last 10 days of the month of Rajab, as we move forward towards the month of Ramadan, in under 3940 days we will be greeting the blessed month of Ramadan, Allah me, I wanted to speak about a momentous historical event, a religious and a spiritual event, nevertheless, a
physical and a real tangible event from the life and the seerah of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, of course, with some of the things their dispute as to which day it was, but it is generally held that in the month of Rajab, in the second half of it, is when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was blessed by Allah, to ascend into a Salah, and then a mirage, to be taken on the night journey from Mecca to Jerusalem, to Baitul macness And then a second journey from there into the heavens, into the domain that is controlled by Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to commune with Allah and received the wonderous instructions from him, including the most important of
our physical duties as Muslims, the five regimented compulsory obligatory prayers. I wanted to talk in sha Allah in commemoration of Surat will Mirage, hoping that Allah Subhana Allah grants us a greater love and affection and honor for our interview Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in our hearts that we may become more obedient to Allah more loving of his Nebia sai Salim Rasulillah and that we adjust our life to his methodology to his habit. And to his suna Allah Amin.
I'll speak in sha Allah about LSR one Mirage, the night journey and the night ascension, the elevation towards the high heavens while waiting for some of your calls and I look forward to being interrupted by them. Insha Allah, we're going to begin in sha Allah by taking important lessons from LSR one. And I think one of the important lessons that we take is that in the mallards, we use that with every hardship there is always ease doubling of ease and comfort, granted by Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was one who was blessed with the revelation of Islam, and given the command to deliver the message of the Quran unto humanity. Now, of course,
there were many who entered into faith and there were many more others who rejected it, in spite of its truth ringing true in their heart, in spite of it being something that they would naturally have a fifth draw and a natural inclination towards. They were blinded by pagan rituals blinded by tribal interference, blinded by lustful leanings to the worldly life, blinded by the pursuit of wealth, power and status, that would turn them away from accepting what their heart recognize was truth. As the days went by, and the years went by the people of Mecca, the chiefs amongst Mecca, those who had the greatest,
to lose, if the message of Islam was to be accepted and dominant, they began to persecute the prophets. I said them and one of their decisions was to annex his land and home and to push him and anyone who supported him up into a hilltop into an area on the outskirts of Mecca, where people were permitted to trade with them, buy with them, sell from
with them to them, marry from them or maintain any type of lifestyle between each other. Now of course this went on for three long years. And in those three years the prophets I send them would suffer some of the greatest losses. He would lose one of his uncle's his great supporter. I will call it the father of Addie of NaVi Tala for the Allah, one who, although his uncle does not enter into faith, he was one who gave his strength towards the prophets I seldom but of a greater loss was Hadi Jaya and Cobra Radi Allahu wa Tada. The first love of the prophets, I send him his wife, the one who he was married to with no one with Him, other than her, the one who was his support. When he
came down from the mountain of Nora, with the revelation of Icarus, the spirit became the heart of his greatest consort and counsel, his greatest support, in all matters of his life, departed this world, the world grew dark, and it was referred to not just as the day or the week or the month of sorrow and mourning, but has a whole year of sorrow was given towards the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his heart. This is how the Sahaba describe that moment in their life and existence, their sadness on behalf of their Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was overwhelming. In the midst of that the people he began to reject more and more even having the
dialogue with a prophet SiteSell. So the Prophet decided to go and visit the second great city and township of thought if the people of Christ sent messengers there and said, When Mohammed comes, humiliate him ridicule, and don't listen to stoning, and it was one of the most difficult days in his life. The prophets I send them later on many years later would be asked by his wife on a Shabbat, Shabbat or Anna, from your people of courage. What was the most difficult day that you've seen? Was it the day you have? What day? Was it? What? What was the hardest day of your life? He said, The greatest trial for me with the day of life. When the young boys were sent out with their
stones, I was cut and I was bleeding. And I turned to Allah, asking for relief. This becomes a powerful lesson for us for its raw when Mirage even before it begins, that Allah subhana wa Tada makes it a trust between him and us, a covenant and a bond, that whatever insult or injury Whatever hardship or difficulty whatever we face in this worldly life, it doesn't mean that it is representative of how we are seen and celebrated in the heavens. And it says if Allah said to the prophets, I send them with this occasion of a sloth with Mirage soon after this moment in time if Yeah, Mohamed, it says if Allah said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if the world does not want you,
the heavens embraces you, and the prophets, Allah Azza wa sallam was summoned by Gibreel Alayhis Salam, to answer the call and the invitation of Allah with hardship. Allah always provides double the ease as a lesson for happiness as a lesson for your comfort. My dear brother, my dear sister, know whatever you're facing in life, that these are blessing days, blessing opportunities, you can make dua to Allah, I wanted to share with you part, if not all of the dua of the prophets, I sell them on the Day of thought. Now there are different narrations for it, some have authenticated and some have deemed weakness in certain parts of it. But the general consensus amongst the roadmap that
this is something that contains a beneficial tool that can be attributed in sha Allah to the prophets, Allah, Allah, or you ascend them. It is said that the Prophet prayed Allah ileka Eshkol, by example what he will clean letter he'll It will however, need otherness, O Allah, it is to you alone, that I complain of my weakness, it is to you alone, that I complain of the scarcity of my resources. It is to you alone, that I complain of what is being put upon me in seeking my humiliation. Yeah, or hammer Brahimi Oh ALLAH nevertheless you remain the Most Merciful of those who are merciful and are Hamra he mean, you alone are the merciful from those who are able to show mercy
and Tara Boone Mustafi in one therapy, Oh Allah, You are my Lord, You are the one who is the Lord of all of those who find themselves in need and are we and I entrust myself to you. Oh Allah Illa men tacky loony Illa that I do when yet
harmoni Illa Illa I do with Malacca Emery, Oh Allah, I asked you by by your blessing upon me, am I to be left to an enemy who seeks to obliterate me or to be put upon distinct persons who seek hostility towards me? It's as if the Prophet is saying Who do I have to turn to you but you Yeah, Allah who was there that can assist me but you Yeah, Allah, inland Yaqoob because a baboon Allah Yucca Valley nevertheless, so long as you are not angered with me. If your wrath is not upon me, I do not care for what tests I face in life when I can have the attacker here also. Lee what will be normally what he can let the ball at level seven What was your idea your expensive relief that I
believe will always be upon me and with me, is more dear to me than any hardship that I faced. And if this hardship brings this relief from you than I'm willing to take it, I seek refuge and protection in the light of your blessing face or a lot from all the darkness that seeks to surround me that it will dispel for me this hardship and darkness as it dispels darkness from the heavens and the earth yet Allah Well, I shall look at level two Luma what sort of Alia I'm doing Yeah, well after it is by the light and the Countess of your face, Oh Allah, that the affairs of this world they're made at ease and peace and everything is put to rest by Your power and your mind. Oh Allah.
I asked you that you do not descend your anger upon me. Onions will be a holdover. We are hitting yada yada Sahaja Allah, I ask you to protect me from any of your displeasure, bringing down your wrath upon me, or that I have anchored you in a way that cuts me off from you. All that I asked Allah, let alone total Toyota when a holder when our Quwata illa avec. All that I say is Oh Allah, I seek your pleasure. I seek satisfaction with you. And I seek to be pleasing to you. Oh Allah, La Hola. There is no power or might or ability or turn, except that which is provided by you. What a beautiful day out of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what a beautiful and eloquent way of
our Nebia Allah for Allah us to request of Allah assistance and comfort and ease and support Subhana Allah to Allah, what a way of our Nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to continually inspire us to push through the difficulties and the hardships that we face in life. What an eloquent way of the Prophet always magnifying the love, not fully focusing on the distress but focusing on the success that will surely arrive there after we ask Allah Subhan Allah to Allah to interest ease and the first lesson that we take from Islam when Raj even before it begins, that the righteous amongst us will always be tested. That no matter what your relationship with Allah, do not ever assume that
life is meant to be easy, without challenge without trial without tribulation. If the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be tried in this way, he would lose his spouse, he would lose his family, he would be ridiculed by those who were lowly. If he would be tested in this way. How can you and I not be willing to accept the challenge of bearing with patience with perseverance and faithfulness in our relationship with Allah, similar, an iota, a small atom of what he carried upon his shoulders.
Another important lesson is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was honored by Allah and therefore we are the honored omet who are honored by Allah because of him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have our first caller on the line we'll come back to discussing this route with Raj shortly insha Allah Assalamu alaikum caller How can I help?
I was just I was
yesterday, I'm with you.
Okay, I was just touched by the DUA you're just reading it. I just want to know where do I find these as I really want to learn it and you know, do it in the multi portraits or in the Quran? Somewhere? Yes, you'll be able also to find it with a quick search if you search for do I have thought if T A if the Do I have thought if in a search engine it will bring it to you but you will be able to find it in many of the books of dua.
Many of the books of Hadith Insha Allah, may Allah Subhana Allah enter this door out for you make it a dua that you and I are able to live up to in our reliance upon Allah subhanho wa taala. We were saying about the prophets I send them another important lesson is that one of the ways that Allah honors than to be a sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that he honors him as the greatest with the greatest honor of his service of being a servant of Allah. And when Allah begins to describe in sort of Israa, the 17th chapter of the Quran, where Allah describes the Night Journey of the prophets I seldom, he begins by saying super Han and led the SRB AD D. Glorified and complete in all aspects is
Allah, the One who took on his night journey on a night journey, his ad, his sleeve, his servant, meaning Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and if we just pause there, it kind of shows us that one of the greatest ways that we can be labeled by Allah subhanho wa Taala is that Allah acknowledges you and I as his humble worshipping servant, in Surah Al Furqan, the 25th chapter of the Quran, Allah gives us some of the traits of a bad rap man, the worshiping slaves of the Ever Merciful and let the name show now a little out of the whole net until the end of the surah May Allah Subhana Allah Minkus of the humble worshiping slaves of Allah subhanho wa taala.
As the prophet is honored by Allah, therefore those who follow him receive honor on account of their love for him and practice of him. One of the most famous dry and Hadith of the prophets I seldom is where he was known to have been crying and asking Allah for help. And Allah said, I will give you happiness in your OMA, ya Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we'll take a short break and come back soon after beat me lucky to either
