I'm honored to have some of my works published with them and to have this time where we come together in commemoration, in celebration, in love, in learning of the Sunnah and the tradition of our Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala early wasabi, we're selling

00:02:14--> 00:02:14

him

00:02:16--> 00:03:02

the topic that was chosen as a beautiful topic, until I get to meet until I get to see Muhammad Sallallahu How do you send him And subhanAllah the promise of the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam to us is true. He said to us sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was standing on his pulpit. 1400 some odd years ago in Medina, he said, What in me are all held? It is as if I can see my pond, my lake on the day of judgment, and you will be where do you do you will meet me there. I will meet you at a held and we pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allows us the honor to be given something to drink from the blessing hand of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah Subhana

00:03:02--> 00:03:49

Allah to Allah, the prophets I sell them tells us that he will give our BSI sell them honor throughout his life, into his death, on the day of judgment on the day of our resurrection. And as we enter agenda and one of the honors bestowed upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that those who have believed in him and committed themselves in submission to the truth, we've a determined effort to follow his example, to be led by his words, to model his behavior, to love what he loved to despise what he despised to be near what he was near, to be far from what he was far from, to value, what he valued. To push away what he pushed away from, that they will be brought

00:03:49--> 00:04:34

closer to him on the day of piano and the prophets. iclm said that on the day of judgment that cathode and the held Ania the cups that are near it is greater than the number of the stars there will be so many people like when you look up into the heaven, it's not greater than the numbers of stars created but greater than the number of stars you see when you look out at night. So many you don't know how many there are. And each of those cups is dedicated for one of his followers. Subhan Allah, this is a great inspiration to me and you, but also in a similar Hadith. The prophet Isaiah Lim says that there will be people who will seek to come close, seek to drink from my co author. And

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

I will say to the angels in the human Almighty these people are from my nation, let them come Why are you driving them away? And the angels will say to me in Nicoletta de ma to mean Baddeck Yeah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you are unaware of the heresy. The religious innovations that are denounced that they put in place after you departed from them.

00:05:00--> 00:05:47

They changed from their habits that they were meant to maintain. After you in tradition of you and in love of you yeah rasool Allah, the prophets I seldom said so on. Such is their dimension such as they're pushing away, then do keep them away from me until his shefa his intercession on their behalf finally reaches them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from a Saba una Sabbath oon May Allah makers from an macabre boon, those who are near to him near to Allah, in our practice in the dunya, so that we can be near to him in the alpha and be of those who enter jedna first and foremost with a what a wonderful sight it would be to be gathered in the Zoom raw of our Nabina Muhammad

00:05:47--> 00:05:58

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the 39th chapter of the Quran is Surah Zuma and ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala says that the believers will be put in one group in one pack in one nation

00:05:59--> 00:06:43

and they will be brought forward and the angels will say salaam when I lay complete button for todo Khalid in Salaam Alaikum. You've done well. You've lived the good life in the dunya so you deserve an eternal happiness in the Alpha Hulu have entered into this Jenna Holly Dean forever in it Allahumma Amin May Allah make you and I have them be in the he what come on me he will fugly he SubhanaHu wa Tada what an awesome awesome spectacle it would be to be gathered in the rank to stand behind are going to be Mohammed so I sell them to be blessed with a Shiva and these are on the Day of Judgment. Where the prophets lie Selim tells us in the Hadith heavily Ibiza either Hodari the

00:06:43--> 00:07:28

Hadith in Al Buhari, that on the day of judgment that the nation's will go from one prophet and messenger to another. They will go from Adam and Ibrahim and no han Musa and Isa until finally when they arrived at ISA, he will say hello, ILA Mohamed for India who let her go to Mohammed, this place this rank and Mohammed Mahmoud, the loftiest station is only reserved for Mohammed on this day. He's the first and the one who shot everyone will check that he's the first to speak on behalf of humanity on behalf of his OMA on behalf of his community and to lay before Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and intercession and a plea and adore art to save us, in fact that your art is being saved by

00:07:28--> 00:08:15

the prophets I send them since he was given the blessing of Islam. The prophets I send them says in the authentic hadith, in coulomb number Yun, all of the prophets of Allah expanded and made their dua, every prophet Lahu Dawa to Mr. Jabba they have one year out when they make it it's always entered by Allah, but die behind never use all of the prophets all of the messengers made their dua to Allah, Elana except I is Tibet to that Watty shefa utterly Almighty, I hid my dua, I kept it with me, I kept it close, so that it can be my shafa for my ummah, on the Day of Judgment, sallAllahu wasallam Allahumma Salli ala Nabina, Muhammad, may Allah make him the beloved to our hearts as he

00:08:15--> 00:08:29

was beloved and loving to us salaallah alayhi wa sallam, he restricted himself from doing art for himself due to Prophet him and the Sahaba of his time, but he wanted it for the entirety of humanity and his nation.

00:08:30--> 00:08:58

And therefore the hadith of herbicide Hodari is powerful. So the nations will then listen to Jesus and come to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they will say, Yeah, Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam each Fallon and Arabic. Ask your Lord to show us compassion and mercy on this day, speak on our behalf. For Julio and Allah. The Prophet says, I will say I am worthy of this, I am going to do this for you. Let me ask my Lord to show us greater mercy.

00:08:59--> 00:09:06

So I will approach allowed for as Jude obey the law and I will make a sujood before Allah

00:09:08--> 00:09:31

failure, Lima Nila who Muhammad Allah Muhammad will be a min Cobley while I'm in bed, I will be prostrate before Allah and I will begin to invoke Allah in a way that he will put into my heart to ask him through these words, that no prophet, no messenger, no human being no creation of God is ever used this way of petition this way of invoking Allah

00:09:32--> 00:10:00

until Allah who will say in foster care, Mohammed Raise your head, where Selter occur and asked me I will grant you which fact to shafa and if you speak on behalf of others, those who I put in your heart to ask on their behalf, it will be answered and granted for you. Yeah, Mohamed and then the Prophet makes us a promise sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said, Well, let the Nevsky Mohamed MBNA by the one who control the story

00:10:00--> 00:10:30

Mohammed, that I will continue to petition Allah, continue to make shefa continue to make dua to Allah to exit from Jahannam to exit from punishment, every believer who has even a mustard seed of faith in their heart, some Allah Azza wa sallam, in the masjid of the prophets, I send them there's a huge sign of a hadith that is collected in Lhasa here, where it says that the prophets I seldom made as a promise, he said,

00:10:31--> 00:11:17

Why Jehovah Cefa it the little cupboard in Almighty, my shefa is incumbent and I will not leave behind even the those who sins were in the major categories in their life. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from the major sins and therefore make us of those who are foremost to the Shabbat of the prophets I send them and may Allah allow us to return from our sins so that we are worthy of the honored standing between ourselves and our Creator and Maker, Jen Luffy Allah subhanho wa Taala until we see Mohamed May Allah subhana wa Taala allow our eyes to see him in the next life as we are not able to see him in this dunya in our wakeful state. And may Allah allow us a vision of our heart

00:11:17--> 00:12:02

and soul in our dreams and of our WSI send him and may Allah subhana wa Taala allow our hearts to see the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah, how do you assess them, reflected in our life reflected in our behavior reflected in the attitudes of our children reflected in the words that we invoke Allah with the prayers in the devotions that we can that we consume, and that we maintain as a lifestyle moving forward? Allahumma I mean, with that introduction, it becomes important for us to begin to focus our attention on what it is that we seek from Allah and His messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as in regards to this sooner, not just why we've qualified why all of us as

00:12:02--> 00:12:37

Muslims, we know we have a love for Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And the love for our newbies I send them is a love in the heart, that even those who are sinful, even those who are distracted even those who make their mistakes, that when the name will have met, I seldom is mentioned the heart moves in their tongues had Salalah How do you tell them that when they have wrong themselves, they remember that they still have an opportunity if they come back to his way to correct their affairs. And they ask of his advice all the way back from 1400 years ago to correct mistakes that we have performed today.

00:12:38--> 00:13:04

And I wanted in sha Allah to have a methodology of our discussion in sha Allah, over the next 3040 minutes be the law hitter item. I wanted first to speak about the courage that is necessary and needed to be a follower of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And I want you to understand that courage is not something that is easy to come by. Courage is not something that is

00:13:05--> 00:14:03

the default position of a human being. Courage requires effort, energy, and an intentional determination. To shift one's emotion from fear. One psychological state from fear one's assumptions of fear to ones of overcoming and resilience in the face of difficult odds. Courage is necessary to be successful, and SubhanAllah. The first category we will speak about is the courage to succeed as a believer and as a submitter in Allah in the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Number two, I want to speak about actualizing and practically speaking, the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that it's not just alive in the words of the books in the Hadith, and the Sierra,

00:14:03--> 00:14:54

but rather than it is embodied in the living tradition, in our behavior and habits today, and third, and finally, a warning to those who stray from the well lit, well trodden, well traveled path of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, let's begin speaking about courage, courage is hard. Subhan Allah, Allah, He will Allahu Allah He to have courage is an enormity. It is a difficulty. And most of us in general, have a sense of cowardice that we're not aware of our cowardice. See, it's very easy to do what everybody else is doing. It's very easy to just blend in. It's very easy to not challenge the status quo that is unjust and unfair. It's very easy to turn the other way. When you

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

see somebody else in trouble that you don't want to get mixed up into it. Although you know, that your voice

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

can make a difference. It's much easier to fail than to be successful in your studies in life with your family, it's much easier to remain angry and resentful and not challenge

00:15:12--> 00:15:57

the things that have brought us to that feeling and state, it's much easier to avoid a confrontation than to confront something that if you solve it will give you happiness. Moving forward, it's much easier for a husband and wife to just say, we're not going to have that difficult conversation. And to brood with anger for a day, a week, a month, and more May Allah protect us, it's much easier to overlook a mistake of our children, and just assume it will correct itself or they will outgrow it or things will change or just give them time, then to actually come to a point of intervention, where it is coming from different places and different angles to make a difference and provide a

00:15:57--> 00:16:33

change of paradigm. It's much easier to blame our inconsistencies and failures on others, and not hold ourselves accountable and have more hasa it's much easier to assume that later on, I will become a better Muslim and my prayers will become better. I just need to get married, I just need to get a job I just need to be on my own. In sha Allah, I just, you know, just a matter of time when I get my act together, it's just easier to assume that things will change without us having to put in a determined effort and it takes courage.

00:16:34--> 00:16:51

It takes courage to hold yourself in blame. It takes courage to center yourself on a path of righteousness that's difficult to follow. It takes courage to lose weight or to

00:16:52--> 00:17:41

make a decision in your academic study or to change your career or to Dean change your savings plan. It takes courage to move from one neighborhood to another because that is what is going to be better for your children. It takes courage to change careers mid midlife And subhanAllah sometimes it is that moment of courage that we take as a reflection from the Soudan of the prophets I send them that brings about the best change in our life. Imagine how much courage it took for the prophets of Allah of the past, to overcome their fears. And I, you know, I want to keep not just as not just like as a Dawa claim, but I wanted to have some sense of, you know, discussion that has a little bit of

00:17:41--> 00:18:32

academia in it as well. Fear from a human construct psychologists will tell you and in the most recent kind of discussions you will find is in 2012, you found Dr called rural Alberta, that he spoke about the hierarchy of fear. And that fear really can be broken into five categories. There's five things that all things that human beings are afraid of can fall into are funneled into these five things, just these five things. There's the fear of extinction, the fear of death, the fear of the end, subhanAllah, it's a human experience. There is the fear of mutilation or being harmed that something happens to your body, that there's illness, that there is injury, there is fear of the

00:18:32--> 00:19:27

loss of autonomy, that your liberty, your freedom will be taken from you. And that you won't be able to be given choice in the things that you want to have choice in. There is number four, the fear of separation, the fear of emotionally, psychologically, physically, being rejected, abandoned, not being wanted, by your peers, by friends, by culture, by your tribe, by your community, by your country. There's the fear of being segmented from the greater body. And there's also finally the fear of our egos, injury and death. There's fear for our pride, there's fear of being humiliated, or being shamed, of losing our standing in society and culture and community. And all of those five

00:19:27--> 00:19:59

categories of fear, anything that you're afraid of comes under them. Now Subhan Allah, each one of those fears and I look forward to writing about it and lecturing more about this in the future. Each one of those fears is in particularly addressed in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet Isaiah. And all of the prophets that are mentioned in the Quran, Allah shows us one of the points of fear that they had or a multiple of them, where they encountered these constructs of fear, and Allah gave them the mechanism to overcome it.

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

fear

00:20:05--> 00:20:55

holds us ransom holds us hostage, and the only one that can ransom us is ourselves. It's our courage. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from the moment revelation was sent to him he was fearful. In fact, what is you know, what's the first picture that we have a little so lots of ice alum is that he came off the mountain he was so he was so anxious. So nervous about he's shaking. He says me Dooney cover me up, you know, cloak me SallAllahu wasallam cover me up cover me up. Zemi Nguni that's the Rooney cover me up. And Hadid God Allahu Allah uses her to quell his fear. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Olivia did Kay a demon for our wotja ball and for her that was Yoda

00:20:55--> 00:21:38

even 1000 that sallallahu alayhi wasallam all of those are different types of fear yet even for our you were cut off separated. Isn't that how they used to try to ridicule Mohammed I sell them in the capital. You've been cut off your children are dying you You're worthless. Yeah, Mohamed Salah is and Allah says in that athlete nachliel Kota. For Sunday, Arabic I want her in Nisha Anika, those who say this about you, they will be the ones cut off for My Mercy. So all of the things that are elements of fear the prophets I seldom is taught by Allah taught through the circumstances of life, to develop resilience, what we refer to as sub sub Budda is interchangeable with courage because

00:21:38--> 00:22:12

what is courage, courage is being able to hold on longer than others being able to go further than other being able to enter where others run away from that you go forward to it for a better outcome and a better cause for yourself, family and community. And courage, of course, is infectious. Courage is something that when people see it, it leads them towards it. And each and every one of the prophets of Allah in the Quran, they encounter these five fears, and Allah helps them through it. Musa stands before Allah, he's speaking with Allah Subhana Allah

00:22:13--> 00:22:52

and Allah subhanho wa Taala says either he left Iona in the Hotaka go to Pharaoh, he has exceeded the bounds of Allah. In one chapter in one set of verses Allah says that Musa says in the fatality minimum lesson for half what you have to learn Oh Allah, I there was one of their men that I brought his death his death was upon my hands and I'm afraid if I go back as Allah tells us and sort of fuss us when he left. Hara jemena Hall if you know Taraka he's looking around he's terrified he's scared they're gonna catch me. So he says oh Allah I'm scared that if I go back that they will kill me the moment they see me I'm my life is forfeit.

00:22:54--> 00:23:19

Panella to have don't be scared to Pamela Latta. Hoffa you and her own don't be scared both of them were scared that would Ali salaam if I will just have enough see here FIFA he got scared the one who killed Jeju. The one who slayed Goliath had a moment of fear. Ibrahim when he saw the three angels he doesn't know they're angels in the form of empire. We just have enough CD for them. He was fearful.

00:23:21--> 00:24:14

He left a number idea Humla Tasi relay him I will just have NFC he FIFA he was fearful inside moves Ali salaam when the Sahara that magicians began to throw in their magic wotja will be said and alim. Allah says for just a few NFC heehee but then Musa inside Musa was fearful putting that data hub in NACA until Allah don't be scared you will be supreme today by the power that I will show through you yeah Musa. So fear is a natural emotion. That is an emotional, psychological and physiological state that needs to be overcome when it does not prevent us from self from danger and self harm. Now of course when a person mixes between danger and fear, they enter into a place where they leave off the

00:24:14--> 00:24:56

Sunnah of the prophets I send them the one of the most important central focus of the Sunnah is to develop courage and resilience sub within the community of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It takes courage to wake up in the morning 430 in the morning for some Salatin engineer in Perth is 434 45 in the morning, it takes courage for you to wake yourself up your family, when you know your children, they might have a test that day and you might think in your mind, you might think in your mind, if they sleep they will perform better on their test. You might think in your mind, oh, I have a big meeting. I need my rest. I was up you know doing my work. If I wake up for

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

five No, I better just sleep until seven and then get ready

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

Allah, Allah All right now Subhan Allah, the sooner gives us the sense of courage, it gives us a sense of dependence and Tawakkol upon Allah, that those who are courageous are not those who are haphazard, those who go beyond the the true limitations rather they are those who prefer the student to the state of other Why is curried so central in the suit of the prophets I send them because it comes from that very base of la ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasulullah have to heat

00:25:33--> 00:26:24

today, it is easier to water down Islam. It is easier to be a Muslim by name than a Muslim by practice. It is easier to camouflage in in broader society, Western society, even Islamic society. It is better to camouflage yourself with a greater majority who may not be upon the truth and we have a statement from their own Emma, and tell Gemma we're in Quinta that will help you are the majority even if you are singularly the only one adhering to the truth Subhan Allah the majority was never for us by numbers. Mohammed Salim was never more in number accelo Jamna. They said they used to say who has more numbers I'm a urs right in sort of money him. Allah subhanaw taala condemns this

00:26:24--> 00:26:49

ideology and thought that it's not by how many people but it's by you adhering to the distinctness of the sooner the prophets I send them said better al Islam, augury Islam, it's very origin produces distinctness, it makes you special, will say oh do come a better Islam.

00:26:50--> 00:27:16

It will return to that specialness, that distinct quality where there's a few people who remain distinct that you can see that they are different to others, for Toba in horror about what a joy will await those who have this distinctness. They said yeah rasool Allah Mennella Hora con Alladhina EFMs sacconaghi Suniti, there are those who will hold on to my path of life.

00:27:17--> 00:28:07

There are those who will hold on to the book of Allah the sooner the prophets I send them in another rewire and the facade the NAS when others lay lay go off in corruption in falling off a path of truth. So the prophets Allah, Allahu Allah, you ascend them, he sets that as a beautiful ideal, a beautiful example. Peace and blessings be upon our Navy Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of the most important aspects of contempt conceptualizing this courage that is needed to adhere to the truth is the very element of la ilaha illallah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, sadly amongst us as Muslims, there is this failing attempt to separate between Mohammed to isolate them and the construct of our

00:28:07--> 00:28:50

worship of Allah and our submission to Allah as though agenne. And a bad that is totally for you a bad that is not something that's open. It is something that is confined just to the demeanor, the habit and the practice of the prophets, I send them and the one who add what wasn't preceded by that order, the instruction and the teaching of the prophets I send them is one who has gone off the path. And they are those who set themselves when I asked the Buddha and now Allah shape, even though they may assume they're doing good, a path that leads away from that which will bring them happiness and contentment in the dunya. An ultra and it takes courage to adhere to the truth. One of the

00:28:50--> 00:29:09

things that distinguishes the believers is how familiar Muslims are in general, with the life of the prophet Sallallahu Sallam first Ask a Muslim anywhere in the world, young or old. What do Muslims eat first? When they are fasting?

00:29:10--> 00:29:38

What do Muslims eat first, in the month of Ramadan to break their fast? There's no you can be in Iceland, you can be in Australia, you can be in Africa, you can be in the heartland of China and you are invited to our Muslims home and Muslims plays to break your fast it is a guarantee that you will find date on the table. Why? Because we value Muhammad Allah Allah Allah said if we value this great NaVi Mohammed II sell them.

00:29:39--> 00:29:59

There will always be that living embodiment, that living culture of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but we want to take it out of it just being the ritualization into the internalization that brings the rituals into full bloom. And this is really the second discussion. You know,

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

How do we make this Hoonah relevant? How do we contemporary allies contextualize and make applicable? The tradition, the habit, the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in our modern lifestyle. And you know Subhanallah when you

00:30:20--> 00:31:01

turn on your car, it's the pseudoknot to say Bismillah Allahu Akbar, you say, what? How do you is saying sunnah it to enter your car, you open your door and you enter into it, you say Bismillah Allahu Akbar SubhanAllah. The Saqqara Luna had, oh my god, where do you get this from? Where is the Hadith that says, When the Prophet entered the car, he said, this law, there's no Hadith, but the, the concept of putting into practice the Sunnah of the Prophet, I sell them in his mode of transport in entering into a place exiting into a place that you are that the prophets I send them was always doing with something that is applicable in all times and in all circumstances. So whether I'm

00:31:01--> 00:31:19

getting on a plane, or getting in a car, or riding on a camel might do I have Bismillah, of saying Allahu Akbar of Subhanallah, the Sahaba Elena, all of these become applicable because of my mentality that the sooner of the prophets, I sell them runs my life.

00:31:21--> 00:31:42

That concept becomes really important that you and I need to be always on the lookout for ways to apply the tradition of the prophets. I send them outwardly. And more important, is to connect with its wording and its practice internally. Why are you saying Allahu Akbar?

00:31:43--> 00:31:51

Why do you say Allahu Akbar? What does that word mean? How does that affect my internal commitment to Allah?

00:31:53--> 00:32:14

One of the issues that I always like to address with my students, especially in my high school students, younger Muslims, is to speak to them about salah, the movements of Salah the words that are ordered for us to make when we're in Salah. And to give them an understanding of how it fits together, why it fits together.

00:32:15--> 00:32:19

What is it that allows a person to pray better

00:32:20--> 00:32:51

than they had prayed previously? The famous Hadith of the prophets I seldom you and I know it right. The prophets I seldom was sitting in the masjid and a man came in and he saw the Prophet sitting and he wants to say salaam he wants to sit with Rossano he wants to chill relaxed with Allah. So I said, so he comes into the masjid, and he prays to rock out quickly because you don't sit in the masjid until you fulfill this sooner Dahlia to Majid. You greet the Masjid. You honor yourself through prayer by giving your devotion to Allah. So the men he prays, but he prays

00:32:52--> 00:33:06

and he comes to Santa Monica rasool Allah, Santa Monica, Mo Messenger of Allah, the prophets I send him doesn't respond to the salam. He says eerdere for suddenly for inoculum to slowly go back and pray because you didn't pray properly.

00:33:07--> 00:33:20

For Raja Raja for Salah, camas Allah, He prayed the way it prayed before and runs back to that dilemma and the prophet Elijah. Finally on the third time, he says, eliminate rasool Allah, what am I doing wrong, teach me.

00:33:21--> 00:34:11

So the prophets I send them does not critique just his physic. The men it wasn't that the man wasn't doing sujood or he wasn't doing a coup, or he's doing all the movements. But the prophets I send them says, when you stand before Allah, FeS couldn't find your internal quiet, be tranquil, without a cat that when you make Gurukula fesko, find your tranquility were either said yet that when you make your sujood fesko. Take your time. Don't rush your prayer, let your inside submit with the physical movements you are making on the outside. The man went and prayed and then came back according to the Prophet, so I sell them and he was greeted by the prophets. I said, he had been

00:34:11--> 00:34:51

taught to pray correctly, that the prayer is not just the functioning of the form, the movement being done, but rather than the prayer is done with the spirit intended for us in the heart, by Rasulullah saw iclm It's for this reason that the prophets I send them shares with us the conversation of pseudo till Fatiha that you and I have with Allah, that you're signing almost a contract and a covenant with Allah. He I can I will do what I can to stay in. That's the essence of your prayer. The essence of the prayer is Salatin. Fatiha la sala Villa fatty without fighting. There's no solder. But the essence of the fatsia is that declaration you're making that promise

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

you're signing that contract only you Allah do I worship, only you do I pay attention and only you do I seek help from so how can you be praying

00:35:00--> 00:35:38

When moments before it at the end the day in the hours before it, where you commit yourself to the worship of Allah to submitting yourself to Allah as LEM to wedgie the law, that you've actually taken a path that leads you away from Allah. How can Allahu Akbar be meaningful? When moments ago you did not make Allah great? You chose to follow and practice something different to what he ordered. You willfully chose to do that which is wrong. So now this Allahu Akbar is an outward statement unless you reconcile it in your heart.

00:35:39--> 00:36:15

And therefore before you approach Salah you cleanse yourself with will do as an act of Toba. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says to us, that when a person performs will do their sins begin to fall with the drops of water, even from their eyelashes, even from beneath their fingernails, even from beneath your fingernails, your your scenes begin to melt away. Why? Because you're going to stand in front of Allah to declare a you are greater Allah, Oh Allah, I will cleanse myself I will find the direction of prayer I will be in a clean place I will submit with Nia to you. And now Allahu Akbar, I begin my salah.

00:36:17--> 00:36:28

The sooner of the prophets I send them is meant to be on the inside. For us to be able to visualize it and practice it on the outside. The prophets Allah Allahu Allah, you are seldom.

00:36:30--> 00:37:22

His lifestyle was an inward lifestyle. Look at the DUA that Omar selama his wife or the Allahu Allahu Akbar has says was the most most often spoken do i by the prophet in her presence? sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she didn't hear any drop more than this your Yamo only will pollute Feb bit unreality. Oh Allah who turns the heart, make my heart make my intentions. Make my inside firm upon your faith upon your practice upon this Deen Oh Allah keep me committed to this way, not just outwardly. There were people who prayed at the time of the prophets, I send them with the outward motions but their heart was empty. We call them and munafo Kuhn. Were in a coma. Illa Sala to call

00:37:22--> 00:37:34

muku Salah when they stand before God in their prayer, they stand lazily sluggishly well I had Karuna Allah Illa kalila that they remember God seldom Subhana wa Tada.

00:37:35--> 00:38:22

Without the being there shaky, not here, not there. They don't have a commitment inwardly and therefore the Soudan that is an internal stability. It is meant to be an internalized faithful appreciation of Allah, internalized faithful appreciation of our Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It is meant to be an internal commitment to our maker, our Creator, Jen fe, o da. So that when we begin with our a bag on the inside, we can put it into practice on the outside. And sadly, there are many of us who masquerade on the outside, and the inside is hollow. I continue to remember one of our sisters, may Allah give her comfort and ease. You know, she said, Jeff, I married a

00:38:22--> 00:38:24

fougere beard.

00:38:25--> 00:38:35

I said, I'm sorry, sister. What do you mean, you know, she was having trouble with the family and separation and divorce. She said, Jeff, I can't go on like this. I married the Fed you two beard.

00:38:36--> 00:39:10

And I said I don't understand. She said what I mean is that the brother when I saw him, his beard is full. Nobody would keep a beard like that. Nobody would dress the way he dresses and not prefetcher like how what what makes you have this beard if you're not a person who can push your blankets off you I'm praying a lot of value. And I'm not saying that he misses it once or twice. i He doesn't pray fudge, he can do it. He's every day. He's missing it. I married the beard I married the image. I didn't marry

00:39:11--> 00:39:59

the inside of a person who I thought was committed to Allah and Subhan Allah, that becomes a very, very important step for us to adhere to the sooner that we can profit to be able to visualize and see Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the house hero and be in his rank on account of our love for Him. See the love of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is not a love of emotion. It is a love of proof and showing our adherence. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Cory say to them in quantum to a boon Allah has to be Rooney. If you claim to love Allah, follow me. Whatever if you claim to love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if the love of Allah

00:40:00--> 00:40:12

evidence by you following then a VSI Salem. What then is the following of Rasulullah saw iclm Except the love of Allah and the love of the message, peace and blessings be upon him. In that authentic hadith one of the Sahaba

00:40:13--> 00:40:16

as he was sitting with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:40:17--> 00:40:30

he got up to go back home for a few minutes. And as he left the masjid, a few minutes went by and he returned weeping and sobbing, crying.

00:40:31--> 00:40:35

The prophets I seldom said Mavic Raja, what's wrong with you, my good man.

00:40:36--> 00:40:38

He said, y'all rasool Allah.

00:40:39--> 00:40:41

In the audiobook I love you.

00:40:44--> 00:40:54

The Prophet size 11 said cometa who will be careful with what you say? He said, O Messenger of Allah to the car to a woman, I remember the day where I will die.

00:40:56--> 00:41:14

And when I am on that day of judgment, you are an Demin you know, you are who you are. You are the messenger of Allah, you are in an McCammon Mahmoud you are Magna bien, you are in the highest levels of infidels, and I'm just me, I'm just an ordinary guy.

00:41:15--> 00:41:30

And I thought to myself, that I may never see you again may never sit with you like this again. I mean, never experience this blessing of being in your presence and smelling your fragrance and and hearing your your words and

00:41:31--> 00:41:33

and it devastated me began to cry.

00:41:36--> 00:41:47

Wala Hee Nila or hymnbook AR rasool Allah or messenger of Allah I truly love you. The prophet Isaiah Lim said, after receiving revelation, Allah reveals this revelation

00:41:49--> 00:41:52

that the one who obey is Allah minuta Allah

00:41:53--> 00:42:20

rasool and they obey the messenger internally that leads them externally for hola ik they will be they are the ones chosen. My Levina Anam Allahu Allah him they will be from those whom Allah has favored. Mean, and maybe he knows so the Athena was shahada, he will slowly he, they will be in the rank of the prophets, and the acceptors of truth and the martyrs and the righteous.

00:42:22--> 00:43:12

And then the prophets I seldom said the Kuno Mammon to Him, you will always be with those who love most. And therefore if your heart inside, loves the dunya that's where you are. If your heart loves vice and sinfulness that's where you are, if your heart is full of infatuation to, you know, slanderous music and sinful images and video if your heart is inclined to obscenity this is what you love. This is what you're connected to the mat is where your abode eventually resides. But if your heart is connected to the house of Allah, if your heart is in love of attending the prayers in JAMA, if your heart is connected to improving your Quran, its citation its understanding its meaning its

00:43:12--> 00:44:03

practice in its teaching to others. If your heart is connected to helping the poor, those who know and those who don't. If your heart is charitable, and your face is generous with smile, if you are a giver, more than you are a taker, if you are patient and resilient when fitness strikes, if you are one who is able to show to others, the Sunnah of the Prophet so I said LEM in your words demeanor, practice and habit. And you do that because because you love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then you will find yourself in his rank. And more on that I mean, you may Allah Minkus, true lovers of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam proven through our conduct and practice.

00:44:03--> 00:44:11

Finally, I wanted to leave with a warning. And may Allah subhana wa Taala protect us from straying from the path of the prophets isin

00:44:13--> 00:45:00

IL is m Asuna be strict with the Sunnah of the Prophet iclm And I'm not speaking about the Sunnah of ritual and practice I'm speaking about the Sunnah of compassion, love and mercy. I'm speaking about the Sunnah of endurance and resilience and faithfulness. I'm speaking about the sooner of talking less and hearing more. I'm speaking about the sooner of establishing a regular habit of reading the Quran and deliberating on its meaning and teaching it to others. I'm speaking about the Sunnah of staying at home with your family more than being out. I'm talking about the tsunami of being in the service of your wife and your children being in the service of your husband being an obedient

00:45:00--> 00:45:15

My wife and obedient child and daughter and son. I'm talking about giving your commitment to others because of your commitment to Allah. I'm talking about you forgiving the one who wronged you

00:45:18--> 00:46:06

and showing generosity to the one who restricted from you. And loving the unlovable for the sake of Allah seeking the love of Allah through it, not because they're worthy. The Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not to turn the other cheek and be abused. But it was to put on a resistance of love to love the aggressor more than they have shown us indefatigability, I push back, vulgarity and obscenity and harm with that which is better than what you received. The prophets of Allah and he was settled him was not the one who ever instigated harm upon others in an undeserved capacity. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a freer and a liberator was one who gave

00:46:06--> 00:46:26

people the opportunity in the autonomy to choose right from wrong after being able to convince them and show them what is right that everyone was left to their unconscious of being and to the step that it would take to eventually rise to a level of practice. The Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:46:27--> 00:46:58

is not one that is easy to be modeled, if one does not begin from the heart. So I warn myself and you I commend you by the order of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Yeah, you are loving and tackle la ha ha Chhatrapati are you who believe, be mindful, be fearful, be conscious of Allah in the way that he is most worthy, not just what you think you're able to give in the most appreciative way of Allah

00:46:59--> 00:47:48

will attempt to turn a level into Muslim own and do not separate from this life in any condition. Other than a willful saw voluntary submission to Allah subhanho wa taala. I leave you with inspirational words from Allah in the Quran, and from statements of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to explain it to us in the sooner I want to be your sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah says they to us through him in the Quran, him delivering the message Miyota Rasool falcata Allah, the One who shows obedience to the Messenger of God is in fact obeying Allah. When mankind Le me new Allah minute in either Allahu wa rasuluh who Amman Akuna Allahumma hirato Emery, it is not befitting any

00:47:48--> 00:48:32

believing men and even believing woman, that when Allah has given a verdict and a decision or His Messenger has given an instruction, that a believer should have any variance in their heart, or any other opinion other than what is given by God it is messenger where you sell Lemo test Lima and they submit and surrender to it wholeheartedly. Allah subhana wa Taala he elevates our W Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by purifying his heart by purifying his sight by purifying his hearing by purifying his narration and his words of advice Malzahar bustle when matava His sight never saw that which was delusional or deceptive.

00:48:33--> 00:48:54

When Matt young declined it, however, his words were never one of his own volition, of his own choice when it comes to the matters of faith. In Hua Illa, away you you have it is a revelation revealed upon his heart from high above that when he instructs us in the truth, it is an inspiration from Allah.

00:48:57--> 00:49:45

His fu ad his heart was cleansed by Allah, the Hadith of the prophets I seldom that Allah looked into the hearts of mankind and there was no heart that was more pure than that of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the heart of Rasulullah saw I sell them was able to withstand the revelation of the Quran, that would cause a mountain to fracture and crumble low and then now here there are Erna Allah Jebin or ADA who Hashimoto sub Jiangmen hatia Tila, if this Quran was to be revealed upon a mountain, you would see it shaking and shuttering and fracturing and pulverized under the weight of the Revelation it had been received, but that which would fracture and bring

00:49:45--> 00:49:59

down Everest could be withstood in the heart of the pure heart of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I want to be your sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the highest standard of character

00:50:00--> 00:50:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala he says to us that we're in Mecca Lala hydroquin alim, I swear by you yeah Mohammed and the character and ethics and morality that you have, that it is beyond an exalted standing. Now that Hello Can I Allah, it is not just a high standard, it is an unreachable standard except by those who seek to come and approach your character through the practice of your character, but they will never reach its height as you have mastered it. They can only approach some of Allah who it was.

00:50:37--> 00:50:43

I don't want to be a sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the one who Allah se says to us about him

00:50:44--> 00:51:38

that he is a swan, Al Hassan. He is the most pristine, the most pure, the most regulated the most complete, the most blessing example for you to model yourself after SallAllahu ala Nabina Muhammad, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to allow us to practice his sooner to be led by his example, to be of those who adhere to his tradition, to maintain his words, and to maintain his behavior as a code of conduct for ourselves, our family and our children. And to leave you with that, I leave three words of advice how we can actualize and learn more of his tradition and put it into practice. Number one, the one you love you remember often and speak about, and therefore of the most important type of

00:51:38--> 00:52:22

discussion should be the discussions that relate the tradition of the prophets, I sell them in our households and in our families and in our community and amongst our friends, read about him and share about him, learn about him and teach about him, acquire information and knowledge about him and be able to transmit it to others. Number two, make dua for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which is another way of increasing our salawat and Durood which is of self profit for ourselves. No one is attached to the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam, unless you can see it in the plentiful ness of their salah, Durood and Salawat upon Allah Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Ali Muhammad

00:52:22--> 00:53:00

can also later Allah Brahim while early Ibrahim A lot of maverick Allah Mohammed Muhammad wa ala Ali Mohamed Kamal Bharata Ibrahim Ali Ibrahim Al Al Amin, Nick Maji, the more you mentioned him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the more you make dua for him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the more Allah blesses your life and opens for you doors that were closed and protects you from harm that you did not know was coming. The more you give your heart strength, your body healing, the more your drive is elevated and raised on account of your love and preference for our levy. As I said, the profit is the one who taught us that when one makes a drop for another, then the angels respond to

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

Amin and to you the same so imagine you ask Allah for peace for the prophets I send them 10 times at minimum is peace returned into your home. You ask Allah to grant Salah and salaam upon the prophets I send them in his family. Then it returns upon you and your home and your family. Multiples upon multiples upon multiples. May Allah Subhana Allah make us weak for in our Tasleem and Salawat upon the prophets, I send them Allahumma Salli ala Muhammad wa ala Ali Mohamed gamma Zuleta Allah Ibrahim, Ibrahim, Allah Houma Burdick Allah Mohammed Mohammed Abdullah Ibrahim Ali Ali Ibrahim Filomena in the Camino Majeed imagine in that Durood in that sola You're not just saying it for the

00:53:46--> 00:54:15

privatize element, his family but also Ibrahim and his family. Why? Because that gives you even multiples if you're remembering Rasul Allah, and also the Messenger of Allah, that great Prophet Ibrahim Abu Gambia, you manifest you maximize the baraka in your home and upon your family. lezzy more Asana LNBs Allah Allah you ascend them, and increase in particular on the Thursday evenings after maghrib and up until I sort of pray you're on Friday, for there is no better do I

Then the sada upon the prophets lie Selim, in that period of time, from from Thursday evening into salata Lhasa on Yom Juma May Allah increase our Salawat upon the prophesy Salim let's say second way of bringing Mohammed into life into our homes and families. And third, and finally defend this tradition by practicing it. defend his way of life by letting people see it in balance in harmony with any place that you live. You will find his sooner will always suit you fast Mondays and Thursdays. Give integrity regularly. be plentiful in your decree that your tongue is always wet with it. Read a section of the

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

Quran in the mornings in the night, make your account in the evenings and in the mornings be of those who is regular in their praying in Jamaica, dress conservatively. Dress beautifully and conservatively, be fragrant in your demeanor. be smiling in your approach, be generous in your loans to others and in giving them time to repay you. Be generous in your food and your consumption and sharing it with others in your community. Be a person who shows well habits I sell them as if he is walking amongst us through your behavior and habits today. I mean, that is occupy and we pray that Allah subhana wa Taala blesses us with a strictness and an adherence to the sooner the tradition,

00:55:45--> 00:56:26

the love and the habit and the practice of our nebbia Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I'm honored to have had these moments with you speaking about Rasulullah saw he said about following Asuna being careful not to stray from it. And I'm honored that tatoeba press was my partner in having this event today. May Allah Subhana Allah lead all of them to that which is good. May Allah increase us in a high yield? May Allah subhanho wa Taala open to us, the doorways that lead us further in loving Mohamed's, iclm practicing his tradition and Asuna and make us from those who are foremost in our behavior and in our flock. Upon his methodology of practice. May we put our feet

00:56:26--> 00:57:12

where he stood, may we be planted firmly upon the path that is well lit in its day and in its night, equally radiant, equally clear, and may Allah protect us from veering off the tangents where upon each and every pathway away from the Sunnah is a shaitan summoning people to a path to hellfire, may Allah protect you and I from this Allahumma Amin Allahumma Salli ala Mohammed in Villa welline Wa Salli wa Sallim wa zero barik ala Sayyidina Muhammad in phylactery Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Sayidina Muhammad in Philomela Alia or hammer walkie mean Allah magia olive namah Johanna Amina Quran and Alim with a kidnapping who Manu Sina Allah Abadox NFL Quran and Alim Allah Who
