Mama, your

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

mama dad.

00:01:22--> 00:01:46

Always and forever. We begin with the praise of Allah subhana wa Tada. We praise Him we seek His forgiveness, we ask Him for His mercy. We testify we state with full firmness and conviction that there is none that is worthy of worship but Allah that Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam is is worshipping slave and final messenger. Hey Betty Villa those who we love for our love for Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:01:48--> 00:01:53

I continually advise and command and admonish myself and you with tequila Zilla gentlemen,

00:01:55--> 00:02:00

the sincerity of thought and awareness and conviction of our dealings with him

00:02:01--> 00:02:47

in the capacity that he is most deserving of us, seeking that we depart from this worldly life in no other condition than willful, voluntary, intentional submission to Him as our gel. And I pray that our Navy Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is our chef here, and the one who will intercede on our behalf so that we may be admitted into genda to feel those due to the mercy of Allah as religion. It is my great honor. My pleasure to be with my brothers and sisters here in the city of Birmingham. In particular, in this Blissett messages, the message of Allah sydnor in green lane, and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make those who are in attendance with us here, those who are here for

00:02:47--> 00:03:19

sincerity of purpose and in the worship of Allah azza wa jal, and I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala, who has joined me and you from our various continents, I'm well aware of the various time zones. It's nearly Midnight in Perth, where I just came from yesterday. So I asked you to keep me awake and shout LA I hope to keep you awake. Even the lakita Allah, I pray the one that who has gathered us from our different countries gathered this all together in Jinja, two in Philadelphia with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:03:20--> 00:04:06

I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala write to you and I amongst the students of this blessing, Dean of this blessing during this knowledge that leads us to discovering him the most high in all aspects of our life, we have a wonderful discussion. And really, I know that the the time that you have spent sitting is a time that has been worthwhile. And I want my discussion with you to be more engaging than just simply me, admonishing you. And I want it to be something that has been not something formative, that builds in me a new desire to improve ourselves in our relationship with a law which equals being better human beings. So I want to talk about the Quran as being a tool for

00:04:06--> 00:04:32

personal development, a map, a guide, a way that leads us to becoming better people. And that has always been the aim of the message that was sent with the prophets of Allah, that he that we receive and the singling out of Allah Subhana Allah, as the only one we worship leaves us also to perfect our character, and therefore till he

00:04:33--> 00:05:00

builds character that he builds character. For this reason he accorded an abuse of the law to us. The Hadith narrated by Mr. Muslim in Namibia is the purpose of my being sent of me being sent to humanity. The minimum requirement is to perfect the clock, the character that people interchange with one another, the etiquettes they display with one another

00:05:00--> 00:05:30

The essence of the tower here is that your relationship that is personal between you and Allah in your heart manifests itself in your tongue, with your eyes, in your ears, with your hand, with your feet, with your heart, with your intentions, with your sleep with your wakeful moment, character, holo, part of the studies of our faith, and one of the Lost arts is in

00:05:31--> 00:05:33

chivalry, how to be a man

00:05:34--> 00:06:23

to commit a radula it's not what is a man but being a good man, the out of the use of this concept of a rajulio, Carmen, the perfect man, the complete man, the one who when you see him, you say this is someone that I can be led by. This is someone that I would give my daughter to. This is someone I would be honored to be married to them. This is someone I can put in dispute between me and others. This is someone even when I oppose him, I know he will deal with me justly. This is someone if I entrusted him with a secret, he won't betray someone who if I give a manner. It's as if I kept it in my home. Someone who when he speaks, His Word is a bond. It is like a covenant. I can move on his

00:06:23--> 00:06:34

instruction, and I can delay on his recommendation. I will do business with him. I would be honored to travel with him. I recommend him to others Marula.

00:06:35--> 00:06:57

Roger. Where is this whole look? Where does this manifest come from? minkee tabula rasa Well, this is why Omar says the things that we quote, you know, you you'll see lots on Facebook, and Twitter, we write the words right, we write these words often, you know, our mother would say, when we had the exam, our honor was the

00:06:58--> 00:07:06

Koran. Anytime we wanted honor outside the book of Allah, Allah would humiliate us, we hear these words, what does this mean?

00:07:08--> 00:07:56

It's that completion of your development as a human being. I want you to understand, yeah, Abdullah, well, I as a reminder to you and I, the pursuit of Islam, leads you to a man which allows you to understand that there is a son, son, this righteousness, the seeking of perfection is not attainable. You become from an watching him but you never attain completion in it. To seek perfection in your relationship with Allah means you're in the pursuit of it. You're always drawing closer to Allah, you know, you will not attain it. Therefore, the only amount they have these words, where they say that the one who doesn't know thinks he knows.

00:07:57--> 00:08:02

I'm sure. You sure? I'm sure? How sure are you?

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

Very Sure.

00:08:05--> 00:08:09

The one who knows knows they don't know.

00:08:11--> 00:08:24

This sure. But there's also doubt listen to illimani Shafi Rahmatullah Holly, what is this is the measurable value sooner what you the listener, they say, they say to you and I,

00:08:25--> 00:08:31

that I know I am on the hook, I'm on the truth, my opinion is the truth.

00:08:32--> 00:08:47

And I believe you are wrong in your stance in your fifth, you're wrong. But you could be right and I could be wrong. Allahu Akbar, you read this in the books of any memorable hanifa you read this in the books of a sharpie?

00:08:48--> 00:08:55

I'm right. And I believe you're wrong. But I know I could be wrong and you could be right.

00:08:57--> 00:09:17

The Quran becomes that balance. I want to talk to you first, in our steps towards this personal development, this view of the world that leads us to an enlightened process of approaching Allah subhana wa Tada. In our sada you begin reciting

00:09:18--> 00:09:43

the Quran with Surah Fatiha. Kita, the mother of the book, The master of the book of Allah masani, the blessing seven verses, and you begin initially by extolling virtue upon the law and praise of Allah Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem With the name of Allah I begin everything because he is the merciful that Especially Merciful, the Lord of mercy.

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

I praise Him and hamdulillah Robin and me, the Lord of all that exists, why Rahmani Raheem, you remind yourself and others, Maliki only been the one who will hold me accountable for my words and deeds.

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

And actions and the illicit movements of my heart Ayaka nabooda

00:10:07--> 00:11:02

only you Allah, do I turn to in worship only you do I seek, then you make the first Doha the first request. The first statements of the Koran is praise of Allah. The first do you make the basis of our song on the basis of our reading the simplification of the Quran in our yard in a verse in a sirata mustafi Allah lead us and keep us upon the straight path. This is the I want to spend a little bit of time with you today. See rod and Mr. Kim mean the same thing. A straight road is Sirat Mr. K means stranger in the straightness, it means must have been balanced in it. And therefore this word is the karma. It's not just straightforward. It means balanced in whichever direction I am in.

00:11:03--> 00:11:14

When you ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for this he Dahlia dinner Serato zakim. You're saying, Oh Allah, keep me balanced in life. What does this mean?

00:11:15--> 00:11:18

Our first stages of personal development with the Quran.

00:11:20--> 00:11:38

Recognize the Abdullah, that as firm as you are standing, you're standing upright. And you say we are on the karma. You say that man who was stuck in his upright, what does that mean? He's standing firm, tall, the feet beneath his feet are planted.

00:11:40--> 00:12:04

It's easy to be in a state of karma. When everything is going well in your life. It's easy when you're healthy. musta came when you have a wife when you have children simple. It's easy when you're going to school when you have a job when you have a home when you have comfort when you're not under assault and not under difficulty. When everything is stable in your life and Thomas takim you're upright

00:12:06--> 00:12:06

but

00:12:08--> 00:12:09

but

00:12:10--> 00:12:13

when the ground beneath you shifts

00:12:14--> 00:12:21

and the earth beneath you shakes and the stability you had in your life is removed.

00:12:23--> 00:12:35

You're not upright, the jaw of the solid when you look and you look so rotten bakura What did what did that Whoo. Then the people say when they face Goliath corner of Ghana, Africa in a

00:12:37--> 00:12:48

bit of damage our Lord, bring down upon us patience and make our feet firm. Keep us steady

00:12:49--> 00:12:53

because it's difficult of the law.

00:12:54--> 00:13:12

It's difficult when the shake when the feet are shaken when illness strikes. When divorce is possible, when poverty is everywhere, when your children are unruly. When your husband is unkind

00:13:13--> 00:13:15

when your wife is disobedient

00:13:17--> 00:13:20

when the community pushes you to the side

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

when the one you trust betrays

00:13:25--> 00:13:29

and the one you confide in is unruly,

00:13:30--> 00:13:40

and the one who opposes you farkash is overboard in vulgarity. It's easy to lose yourself, it's easy for you to return an insult with insult.

00:13:43--> 00:13:50

It's easy for you to assume a lot is not listening to you. When you ask and it's not immediately answered.

00:13:53--> 00:13:58

It's easy to lose yourself when the ground that was stable has shifted.

00:14:00--> 00:14:07

But the Quran becomes that personal tool of stability, Allahu Akbar,

00:14:08--> 00:14:17

you find solutions to the problems of your life in the Quran. The first issue of balance therefore, of the law.

00:14:18--> 00:14:30

And the first issue that we seek in our personal development is to find that which will keep us firm when others around us crumble.

00:14:34--> 00:14:43

firmness is attained by a relationship that you have with the Quran, irrespective of the conditions of your life.

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

Irrespective of your wealth or poverty, of your marital status of your health. The Quran becomes the first place you look for the Shiva for what ails your heart.

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

The second

00:15:03--> 00:15:36

part of Idina overbore lead us to the straight path, a slot and Woodstock theme is that although you may think that balance is just being upright, there will be times in your life where you yourself will cause the imbalance, you will lean too much to one side, at the detriment of the other side. And therefore, you know, if I dramatize if I hold my phone in the middle, we are an own metal.

00:15:38--> 00:16:09

What is our own man? What's the middle ground, we're held firm in the middle. If you go a little bit, this way, you're gonna fall collapse, you have no counterbalance, you have nothing to make you upright. The Quran is that which makes you upright. If you go too far this way the Quran pulls you back. If you go to deficient, the Quran pulls you back, you can go to extreme in adding what is not there?

00:16:10--> 00:16:43

The Quran centers you and you can go to extreme by eliminating what's there. So the ns enters you into both circumstances in the life of our nebia Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. As is narrated by him Bahati, the prophets, I seldom heard of people who had virtuous good deeds, we're not talking bad deeds. One of them said, I need to worship Allah, I desire your agenda. I want a path to righteousness, I want to ensure salvation. I will not sleep at night ever.

00:16:46--> 00:17:20

And I will stay awake in prayer insula every night. Another one said, I cannot take the responsibility of a wife, who will bring children how will I worship Allah if I have to feed others, I can survive on meager things on the kindness of strangers. But if I have a spouse, and if I have a Mr Lee and responsibility, I won't be able to worship a lot. I will not marry another cent. Every day of my life every day I will never break my fast. Every day I will fast from dawn until dusk.

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

The Prophet heard of this on the law what he was saying.

00:17:27--> 00:17:28

Balance.

00:17:29--> 00:17:48

He said I fast and I break my fast. I have married from women. I pray at night and I sleep at night mandarake but uncertainity Felisa mainly the one who leaves my sooner even in addition, even in doing these good things cannot be from my community from the community of the Quran. Some of our

00:17:49--> 00:17:52

balance come back. Don't go too far.

00:17:54--> 00:18:08

The profit side Selim tells you in the authentic hadith, hate no one to an extreme because perhaps tomorrow they will be your friend. Could you imagine? Yeah. Abdullah, if I were gonna be in Salalah when he was lm despise the Roma.

00:18:09--> 00:18:18

Could you imagine if zenegra a slave that are Marathi Allahu anhu, before his Islam would be turned to unconsciousness.

00:18:19--> 00:18:24

colosse could not recover consciousness for days for the loss.

00:18:25--> 00:18:26

Could you imagine?

00:18:28--> 00:18:33

If there was hatred in the hearts towards Carlin, the one who brought about the death of Hamza

00:18:35--> 00:18:46

in the Battle of offered for the Allahumma boham. Could you imagine if there was hatred that you canceled them out, they can never do good, I could never accept them. They've done what they've done. halus

00:18:47--> 00:18:49

la la balance,

00:18:50--> 00:19:07

Surat mustafina. Third, is that the counterbalances and allows you an opportunity to invest in your future. Three things firmness, and we're going to talk about how firmness

00:19:09--> 00:19:37

it pulls you back from the brink of falling over into extremism, into radicalism into deficiency into liberalism. It pulls you back in line. And third, it tells you who and what can counterbalance the things of the law. Do not ever in your life. Think that you can draw and take out what you have not put in.

00:19:38--> 00:19:49

You are not just if you are seeking from a law from others what you are not giving in. If you want your wife to love you and you don't love her, how's it gonna work?

00:19:50--> 00:20:00

If you want your children to respect you, and you are harsh and abusive, how will they do it? If you want to be a man of standing in the community

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

But you give half truths. You are aligned with a racial ethnicity or we are from this place Kalas?

00:20:10--> 00:20:12

How do you find how someone respect you?

00:20:14--> 00:20:50

There has to be what? What you find that you invest, what you put in, is what you can take out. You can never expect to take out more than what you have put in. You want this magic to flourish, put something in it. dedicate time towards it. Give assistance, not talking about money, give effort. But don't just take take take. You want your children to be people of righteousness, invest in them in time. invest in them in teaching, invest in being part of their life caring in their experiences,

00:20:51--> 00:21:21

uprightness nobility. So those three things we will address from the Koran with examples from the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The first which is finding firmness and asking Allah for patience. I want you to consider our nibio Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah describes our profit in Nakuru, an by saying, had to either stay as a wish

00:21:22--> 00:21:36

all of the messengers and the side of the messengers, Mohammed so I sell them until they came to a point of despair. The messengers of Allah would be tested in their life to such a degree,

00:21:37--> 00:21:43

that even the pillars would seem to be nearing the point of crumble

00:21:45--> 00:21:48

at the state of sorrows, woven new

00:21:49--> 00:21:58

and no clue. And then those who believed in them came to a breaking point where they thought that they had been lied to

00:21:59--> 00:22:14

Jehovah sooner. It is at that point where they have determined there's faith in a law and have remained firm upon the truth. Jaya Hoon, Nasir una, our victory and deliverance comes to them.

00:22:15--> 00:23:06

What is the lesson from this? What is the lesson that we take in our personal development? Never Yeah, Abdullah never Yeah, I'm at a law my brother, my sister in law, Islam. Never ever, ever in your life. Assume that Allah is not with you. Allahu Akbar. Allah is with you in the most difficult circumstances and Allah is with you in the most ease of your circumstances. In Nima Kumar, Allah says to Moosa and Harun, I have always been with you. Look at look at how Allah speaks to Musa alayhis salaam. Musa says, How can I go to Pharaoh? I used to live with him, I emerged I killed a man who, who was in his, from his people, I fled from them, how can I return and say I'm a prophet

00:23:06--> 00:23:08

of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:23:09--> 00:24:05

And Allah says, Allah God men and naturally come up with an okra yamasa even when you were a baby, I was with you. I made the one who your mother feared the one who is whodunnit Allah, who is an enemy of a law and his enemy becomes his primary caregiver. Allah is with you Abdullah in the most difficult circumstances in your life, you will find that if you remain firm with Allah was there a new bit Sabri was Sala if you remain patient, and enduring and if you remain connected, Salah connected to Allah, you are where you are from those who are victorious. Even if everyone around you thinks you have lost even if everyone around you thinks that you have been humiliated, you are with

00:24:05--> 00:24:07

victorious with a loss of Hannah Montana.

00:24:09--> 00:24:24

I want you my dear brothers to understand that this dunya that we are living. Much of it is like a mirage. You have to understand, you know the the promotional video of this conference was chef Machado de la la reciting and have

00:24:25--> 00:24:44

the absolute truth, the absolute reality. You know what this is this absolute reality. It's not just the Day of Judgment is that you will wake up and I use this word carefully. You will wake up in your grave, and you will whisper to others as the law says in the Quran, get a half a tuna by noon.

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

You will turn to the man next to you and you will say How long were we asleep for? You've been dead for years, some 1000s of years. How long were we asleep for our new listener Yeoman Ababa.

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

Maybe a day more or less.

00:25:04--> 00:25:04

And Sarah, who's

00:25:07--> 00:25:19

the one who has the clear recite will say it was only like a day, this whole life you live when you come out of your grave, and you will look and you will remember your life you will say a day.

00:25:20--> 00:25:26

Your whole life will seem like a day to that eternity when you return to a law and half

00:25:27--> 00:25:32

the reality of your life. The honor you receive then

00:25:33--> 00:25:37

will make this world p feel like a dream.

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

Be with a law.

00:25:43--> 00:26:15

establish that trust. Remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I shouldn't do Nancy Bella and lamb are those who are the most trusted of the servants of Allah are the prophets of Allah. So men amateur amateur, the one who is most in difficulty are those nearest to them in character and conduct in belief. You teller Raja Raja has led me a person is tested in accordance to the level of his faith, the more difficult your test, don't think I'm talking about hardship alone.

00:26:16--> 00:26:56

The BMW drive brother is a big test this semester. You are now you're sitting in, in the comfort of air conditioning of heating of nice carpet. It is a huge test. Do you think Abdullah that your brother who's living on the borders of Syria and Turkey, who's expelled from his home, lost his business had assaults committed to his wife and daughter whose children were forsaken? Who's been cut off from the world? You think that if he misses us, Allah and new Mr. Sala, you're going to come to alarm the day of judgment on equal ground.

00:26:58--> 00:26:58

Now a lot

00:27:01--> 00:27:14

you think because you live a mile away from the masjid or I don't hear that Nita. I can't come I'm not gonna come with the car and there's parking and you think you missing the jamara is like he missing the Jamal.

00:27:16--> 00:27:24

You think you been in attentive to the sunon and the nephew is like him missing soon enough.

00:27:26--> 00:27:27

Lola

00:27:29--> 00:27:31

How can you balance it? Can

00:27:34--> 00:27:45

you tell her Rajan Allah has led your test mine test the comfort of an hamdulillah a prosperous rave life in in Australia in Britain

00:27:46--> 00:27:53

is a huge huge test that you will stand in front of a loss of Hana with either one Rafa can

00:27:55--> 00:27:59

and Allah will show the blessing he gave you and you will recognize it.

00:28:00--> 00:28:02

He was you here is hidden.

00:28:04--> 00:28:08

Now I will tell you, what did you do? In comparison to what he did?

00:28:10--> 00:28:13

I say to my students, young students,

00:28:14--> 00:28:21

some of them they're saving up for a video game system, you know, you know, young kids Mashallah that you know, they've saved up for $500

00:28:22--> 00:28:34

and I say look, if I have in the bank $50,000 and you have $500 and I come in Ramadan, and I give $500 and you give $500 Is it the same level law?

00:28:36--> 00:29:01

of abundance? Baba Kuma, Allah kumala. Some have been given what others haven't ever risk. Are we the same, you've given the same amount? You might give five pound Yeah, Abdullah and I might give 500 pound, maybe Allah has given me wealth and has not given you wealth, your five pound will be accepted many, many, many, many times more than the one who gave 510 50,000

00:29:03--> 00:29:05

because you're assurity in the trust of Allah.

00:29:08--> 00:29:09

Second,

00:29:10--> 00:29:51

we spoke about extremism, radicalisation, about deficiency and neglect. Both are extremes and the Koran seeks to develop us so that we don't go this way or that way that we come upon the truth and in the middle. When Allah describes our own as well sorta he says we you are in the middle. Some people we forget what it means to be in the middle, middle means protected. If this is a brick, and I have a brick above it, a brick to the side, a brick under it, a brick opposing it. The one in the middle is the one who is masuleh protected, it will not erode until all the round is broken up first. This is our own map.

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

Our own a sheltered from the adversities of life due to the student of a nebia Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

You guard your soldier with sooner you guard your sooner with nafld

00:30:07--> 00:30:15

you guard your sleep I'm in Ramadan by fasting Mondays and Thursdays 13 1415 of every month whatsoever. You're in the middle.

00:30:17--> 00:30:18

But you cannot

00:30:19--> 00:30:37

ask add more bricks than that middle brick can take. If you burden too much on that foundation laid by Mohammed Salim, you're gonna break the foundation the building's gonna collapse. You cannot add more than what has been put by our Navy Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:30:39--> 00:30:42

Therefore, you hear these words in the Quran,

00:30:43--> 00:31:03

where Allah subhanho wa Taala Ana, he speaks to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by saying to him to follow one who preceded him with any tabea militar Ibrahim hanifa Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you follow Ibrahim Allahu Akbar.

00:31:04--> 00:31:06

Even you the best of the best,

00:31:07--> 00:31:26

the loftiest of those who have attained heights of spiritual physical and material development with a loss of Hello Tyler Yeah, Mohammed Ibrahim, don't go past what Ibrahim set in his terms of being Hanif pure, in seeking Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:31:27--> 00:31:32

Those confines are based on knowledge, ensure knowledge.

00:31:33--> 00:31:49

Everyone My dear brother, and sister in Islam, every one other than our Nabhi and then our Prophet, you have men who when you wrote, you can take from them and there are other things that they can have returned to them.

00:31:50--> 00:32:04

I want you to think, you know, some words we misuse. Some words are used out there in the world. I don't mean just within the Muslim world, I mean, the broader community. People you read newspaper words like patois

00:32:05--> 00:32:13

and people think you know, the fact that I was given her last. fatwah is a legal opinion by an expert, but it is our opinion.

00:32:15--> 00:32:18

There's one fact one another facts were opinion.

00:32:20--> 00:32:23

There is one statement and another statement.

00:32:26--> 00:32:58

Our tradition and the Sunnah of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is built in its most elemental basis upon his words, his actions, and maqasid the intentions of why he did and said what he did and said some of lahardee Listen, the Quran therefore calls you back to come and to look at that way of the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you want your desire, the things you love, and the things you hate to be the things he loved and the things he hated

00:33:01--> 00:33:34

your house However, what you think of what you desire is what he desires. It's a little of what he was sending. You know, you know how blessed you are you have the law. Yeah, I'm not a law. You my brother sitting in front of me, well, law, he will lobby had you been alive at the time of our Navy, Mohammed sigh seldom, and you've been amongst those people in chorus, you would have followed him solo laquan he was, you would have seen the truth and come to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam you have the fitrah and inclination and desire to be from Bab and the Sahaba of the Navy Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:33:35--> 00:33:52

And the proof is that you accept him today. And those who rejected Mohammed then salamati wasallam. If they were alive today, they would reject him now. Those who reject Mohammed Salim now if they were alive, then and saw him then and heard from him, then they would reject Him then

00:33:54--> 00:34:46

you are from the chosen of Allah Subhana. Allah, blessed to have been given this he Daria, this cherished gift of being a follower of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Let not your name or your children's name be Mohammed. But make more importantly than just the naming of our children. The aspect of following his conduct and code in personality in that Hulu, in that column of our Navy Salalah while he was in third, I wouldn't be on the law who it was solemn. Allah says to him about balancing and counterbalance how the horror and pulls us right and left and in any choses the middle course. I want you to consider that in every aspect of the Prophet's life sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:34:46--> 00:34:59

that there can be a lesson from it. And when you look in Nepal and part of my discussion later on today after selected metric is that we're going to talk about how the Quran is so universal. You can find the origin

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

Nancy, if you have an

00:35:03--> 00:35:48

example of everything you want to see any kind of relationship, any kind of transaction, there is a parable in the Quran. You want to see a husband and wife working towards a law. You look at Ibrahim and his wife Sartre and zecharia and his wife, you want to see a good man and an evil woman? You see Luke and his wife, no, and his wife. You want to see a good woman and a wretched man. You see Asya and frown. You want to see an adopted son, and a tyrannical father, that I own and Moosa, you want to see a person who commits a major sin in error, murder, that

00:35:49--> 00:35:58

manslaughter killing, and it's repentance from her formation and personal development you look at Musa alayhis salaam. You want to see

00:36:00--> 00:36:27

brothers who hate a brother, look at use of you want to see forgiveness within the family, look at use. You want to see a brother who loves his brother and tries to save them look at use of aleikum wa salam. You want to see a father who is patient with disobedient children look at Yahoo. You want to see a father and son working for Allah Ibrahim and smile in his heart.

00:36:28--> 00:36:29

You want to see

00:36:30--> 00:37:00

a marital relationship where a husband and wife assist one another in good. You look at a wannabe Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his wives. You want to see a father losing a son? Look at No. You want to see a father having a son? Leave him for the dunya leave him for cough? Look at No. You want to see doctors who assist their father look at lewd

00:37:01--> 00:37:30

Torah. Everything is in the Koran. It gives you a parable to your life that you assume it but you have to open it. You have to search you have to see what has Allah subhanho wa Taala inspired and gifted us in this wonderful wonderful portal and you're going to say and I wish to conclude with these words. You're gonna say brother Yeah, sometimes the plan seems unapproachable. This is a reality for me and you.

00:37:31--> 00:37:59

Not everyone opens the Quran and sees what the next person sees or benefits what the next person benefits. And this is from Allah wa focac Olivier Minnelli above everyone is endowed with knowledge is one who is more knowledgeable This is from Allah subhana wa tada nevertheless, and what you can find is the examples from the Sunnah and the actions of the Sahaba in one of the most beautiful Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari.

00:38:00--> 00:38:40

Remember the Allahu anhu He is ameerul momineen after the death of Abu Bakr, radi Allahu anhu Omar, Omar is sitting with the Council of the elders, those who witnessed the Battle of bed. And sometimes it would almost seem to Omar that they would look down at some of the younger Sahaba, who had not lived and witnessed the Battle of Badr who were not there from the very beginning with a messenger, Mohammed seisen. So Omar would invite purposefully. Abdullah hibiya basadi Allahu anhu. And we'd say to him sit with us, and I'm the loving ambassador, he was a young guy, still in his teens, he would be shy to sit with the likes of Abdul Rahman.

00:38:41--> 00:38:52

You know, you don't just walk in honor of man or the Allahu anhu. The prophets, I seldom would fix his clothing before he met. You're not just gonna sit next to the man or the Allahumma.

00:38:53--> 00:39:16

You don't just roll up on him. So he's, he was kept alive now back to demand on the one who gives us the explanation of the origin. So I would say Come, come, come. And one day, remember to show the virtue of a goddess. He says to the Sahaba men men come home from you can tell us what they know about either job and also law

00:39:18--> 00:39:21

about that shorter surah of the Quran, one of the shortest

00:39:22--> 00:39:35

a surah we all know. And many of the heart Sahaba said it predicted to the Prophet the victory of Islam and this and this and this. And I'm gonna do hip hop didn't say yes or no. And then he said, What do you say?

00:39:37--> 00:39:44

And he said, I say different to them. He didn't say they're wrong. I say something different.

00:39:46--> 00:39:50

So he said tell us, he said I believe the surah

00:39:52--> 00:39:53

was the eulogy

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

and the prediction of the imminent death of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

The surah about the law

00:40:04--> 00:40:15

that we recite so often in the hole and I just want to give you an example of, of how we connected this, Brian, it's not just the words, but there's emotion. There's meaning there's history in that word.

00:40:17--> 00:40:31

When the surah was revealed, Abu Bakr when he heard the Prophet recited on the member when it was first revealed, he began to weep. And the people said, Now he has a shave. What's happened to this old man? What the last one?

00:40:33--> 00:40:46

Why is he crying, saying feed that can FCR Rasool Allah, I would sacrifice my life for your life on messenger of Allah. I wish that a lot of takes my years and put some two years Allah Salalah feedback, NFC.

00:40:47--> 00:40:51

What happened to him? Why is he crying this way? They didn't understand.

00:40:53--> 00:41:04

The surah completed Alex fever upon the messenger Mohammed sigh send them that day, when the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam occurred

00:41:05--> 00:41:46

as he was in the house of Arusha in the morning, in the pleasure of prayer, he opened the curtain from his room. And he saw the Sahaba standing in prayer. And when they saw him Abu Bakr, who was leading the Salah, they made a noise for Abu Bakr move back the Prophet standing sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's well enough to come back and leave the prayers. You've been leading us for four days move back, and Abu Bakr began to move back are the Allahu anhu he saw the prophets I sell them. And the Prophet pointed to you know, continue continue. And they say that his face was beaming. His smile was brighter than the moon solahart he was saying.

00:41:50--> 00:41:53

And he reclined in the chest of Arusha.

00:41:55--> 00:41:58

And she heard him respond to the angel of death.

00:42:00--> 00:42:07

Bella Rafi will Allah know I choose the high abode to be near Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:42:08--> 00:42:21

And she says, saquon his weight became heavy upon me Salalah when he was in his soul department, and she wept and screamed out Martha Rasulullah sallallahu it was

00:42:23--> 00:42:26

an Sahaba outside in the message, they heard her say this.

00:42:28--> 00:42:35

The Prophet has died some a lot. He was Selim humara, who was camped outside his home, drew his sword

00:42:37--> 00:43:09

and said there are hypocrites who have said that the Prophet has died Salalah what he was saying, and the Prophet has not died, he has gone to visit his Lord, as Moses visited his Lord for 40 days. And when he returns He will punish those who say this word. Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu, who was at a distance, tried to return to the masjid. In that moment of man could not carry his body. He sat on the ground paralyzed in grief.

00:43:10--> 00:43:44

Ababa is arriving early. He sees this moment and his tongue became still couldn't speak. One of the men of the anzar who had seen the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that morning, who had looked in that beautiful face of the messenger, he said matter Rasulullah Is it true he has died some a lot while he was a limp Allahumma salli ala ala rasulillah da remove my site. So I don't look to a face after the face of our messenger some a lot buddy Watson

00:43:45--> 00:43:47

and his eyes departed their site.

00:43:53--> 00:44:22

The Medina was in grief, a darkened and bobak said those words of balance, said those words of the whole and when the calamity struck. Abu Bakr stood on the mimbar After verifying the truth, he kissed our Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the forehead. And he greeted him and he said to a young woman, Gita, you were always blessed and fragrant in life and after death sobre la he was

00:44:24--> 00:44:25

you will always honored

00:44:27--> 00:44:30

and as for the death that was written for you, you have tasted it Salalah

00:44:32--> 00:44:34

and you will never face this pain again.

00:44:36--> 00:44:39

And he stood on the member and he said the one who worshipped

00:44:42--> 00:44:45

Mohammed let him know Mohammed has died some

00:44:47--> 00:44:50

woman can i Abdullah namaha hate You're

00:44:51--> 00:44:57

the one who worships a lot let him know Allah is alive and will never cease to be

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

subhana wa Tada.

00:45:00--> 00:45:23

The centers are life. He then recited an area, that aroma and we know who is aroma. He said it's like I've never heard this verse. I've read it 1000s of times. I've learned it from the tongue of our prophets. I seldom, but its meaning had never touched my heart. I had forgotten it until that moment when Abu Bakr said when Mohamed ihlara sued

00:45:24--> 00:45:28

Mohammed is nothing more than a messenger affecting math outputting and

00:45:30--> 00:45:37

he was to die or to be killed in battle would you return from the truth that you have accepted?

00:45:39--> 00:45:44

Billa radi Allahu anhu. When the time for prayer came,

00:45:45--> 00:45:48

he was demo of our nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:45:50--> 00:45:55

And he began the advan until he reached a shadow Allah Isla de la

00:45:56--> 00:46:01

when he heard and attempted to say what I shall do under Mohammedan

00:46:03--> 00:46:04

incoco hustle.

00:46:05--> 00:46:07

He couldn't continue that.

00:46:08--> 00:46:15

He couldn't bring and bear to say a shadow Mohammedan Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:46:16--> 00:46:52

So Abu Bakr will take over the other one and make the other than to its completion. Soon after the burial. be loud with your loved one who asked Abu Bakr and Omar let me be let me go out let me travel. And he went with the Jewish with the army all the way to Damascus in Syria. And he did not return until he saw I wouldn't be in some of the law while he was seldom in a dream with a prophet said, why have you forsaken me? Why have you departed for so long? And the moment he woke up, he put on his clothes, got on his horse and traveled to Medina.

00:46:53--> 00:47:17

And when he arrived, the people said you have VLAN as in finance, make the other hand when Bill stood up to make the van and they heard him say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And they heard the voice that used to be tied with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam in Pharaoh's in Medina tabin buka, the Medina burst into tears.

00:47:19--> 00:47:28

One pillar and Masjid and the masjid was filled and filled. Even the women who could not pray, stood outside

00:47:29--> 00:47:30

and he could not complete the

00:47:33--> 00:47:48

Bilal is fortunate to have made the other than from the roof of the Kaaba and for years in Medina, and when Omar conquered messaging, aka remote ordered Bilaal to make the Adhan.

00:47:49--> 00:47:50

And when the GH

00:47:51--> 00:48:08

the army of Mohammed heard his name recited again by Bilaal, they knew that the promise of Allah has always been true. From the very first days when people like Bilal were tortured for their belief, a hadn't had, he is one he is one

00:48:10--> 00:48:13
