Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:26 --> 00:01:17

Today's wisdom from the Quran is simple and it is inshallah a cheerful one. Surah Nisa, verse 86, Allah subhana wa Tada says, weigh the Yeatman better here 10 For how you will be nice and I mean, oh to do her, when someone greets you with a greeting. When someone greets you with a greeting, make sure you respond with a better greeting, or at the very least respond in an equal manner. Indeed, Allah takes into account everything. There is a verse in the Quran that encourages us to greet people with pleasantness. There is a verse in the Quran that teaches us that it is our job, it is of our culture and custom, that we should meet and greet with a cheerful countenance with a smiling

00:01:17 --> 00:02:05

face with a beautiful word. And Allah says when somebody greets you, then I am telling you you should respond in a better manner or worst case scenario at least respond exactly what he has responded with you the word used to hear in Arabic the greetings pre Islam you know the greeting of a Salaam Alaikum was of course Islamic pre Islam, they would say May you live a long life and from this to here comes because the here literally means Hyatts may you be given a yacht may you be given long life and that's why we say in the Salah, adhere to the law, adhere to the law means ultimate greetings and ultimate Hayato belongs to Allah. So a yacht is the same over here. But of course when

00:02:05 --> 00:02:54

the Quran is saying here that way the YouTube into here, it means any greeting if somebody gives you any greeting, Allah says respond back with a better greeting. Now obviously in our Shetty, we are taught the best year, the best greeting and this is something Allah taught to mankind. Allah subhanho wa Taala created our father Adam, and this hadith in Bukhari and Muslim and the first thing he taught our father Adam, the Hadith tells us the first phrase He taught Adam, he said to Adam, oh, Adam, go to those angels over there and say, a Salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah and listen to their response, memorize their response and teach your children what I taught you and what the angels will

00:02:54 --> 00:03:40

say to you. So are the walked over to the angels. And Adam said, a Salam or Aleikum, wa Rahmatullah and the angels responded, why they come was salam, wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. And Allah said to Adam, this shall be your greeting and the greeting of your progeny until the day of judgment. So the concept of salaam was literally taught to us by Allah, He taught mankind and the Quran is full of Salam. Allah says in the Quran, Salam o Allah no Hayneville al Amin, Salam upon Noah, Allah says in the Quran, Salam o Allah Ibrahim Salam upon Ibrahim, when Allah sent the angels to Ibrahim for the hadoo Allah He for call to Salam and all Salam on Omen one Quran, Allah says in the Quran, salam, O

00:03:40 --> 00:04:04

Allah Musa Harun Allah says in the Quran, Allah Al Hamdulillah was Salam on Allah everybody he led you know, stuff up. Allah says in the Quran was salam ala l Mursaleen. So many salaams upon all of the righteous, and Allah teaches us in the Quran, and he teaches the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were either Jukka Latina yo Moon want to be? Tina furcal Salah Moon either you come

00:04:07 --> 00:04:46

when the believers come to you then say salam or Aleikum, Salam or they come is a characteristic of iman. And it is the highest level of data, remember to here can be anything. And by the way, for the record, there's nothing wrong with adding extra things after this that are cultural, the out of say, Milan was Sahana. And after that, no problem. And that was Pakistanis must say other things. That's why he needs my say other things. It's all good. It's a part of the culture, but the ultimate to hear is of course set up so you say a Salam or they come and then you want to say what happened and then was salah, and you know whatever who sham deeds, whatever you want to say all of it is all

00:04:46 --> 00:04:59

good. But the Islamic greeting which we should begin with is the greeting of Salam. In fact, Allah calls this Salam, a mark of Eman and he says Walter olu Lehmann, I'll call it a como Salama, let's demote Mina.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:43

Never say to somebody who says salaam to you you're not a believer. Never say if somebody says a tsunami or they come Don't accuse him of being a coffered, he said Salam to you, Allah made the salam, a mark of Iman and our Prophet sallallahu either he was seldom taught the Sahaba to say salam. In fact when he entered Medina, the first chutzpah he gave you can say in fact, you don't even call it a hold but Simone de la he is on the camel and tuning from a from a Koba. He's entering Koba, and he's entering Medina, the first Hadith the first sermon what does he say to you harness a shoe Salam will alter Mo Tom will sudo or ham was her Luba lady when nurse Hoonah yum that whole

00:05:43 --> 00:06:28

agenda to be said the first phrase from his mouth as he enters the city of Medina or mankind, I am telling you to spread the greetings of salaam of Shu salaam, spread the greetings of Salaam and our Prophet sallallahu sallam said in an authentic hadith Wallah he You shall not enter Jannah until you love one another, you shall not enter Jannah until you have muhabba and I will tell you something if you do it, you will have this muhabba up Xu Salama Bina calm, spread the salam amongst you. So when we spread the salam, we're going to increase our love. And with that love, we shall enter agenda very briefly, what does it mean when we say a Salam or Aleikum? When we say a sunnah, why they come

00:06:28 --> 00:07:15

it has multiple meanings of the meanings first and foremost. Allah's name is a Salam. One of the names of Allah Azza Salam, a Salam, Al Mortman, and more Haman. So when we say a Salam or Aleikum, we are literally saying, May Allah be with you as salam May Allah be watching over you? So as salam aleikum, may Allah subhana wa Tada be with you? Another meaning of a Salam is we are literally making a dua for the person we meet. And we say may no evil touch you may you always be happy. May I always see you smiling. Salaam is the absence of pain. Salam is the absence of irritation Salam is peace. So when we meet one another, we say a salam Wa alaykum. I want to see you in peace all the

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

time. May Allah always protect you, and of course, of the meanings of a Salam or they come when you are making dua for your brother, and you're saying, May you never be harmed, you're automatically saying, I will never harm you, you're automatically saying, I'm wishing peace for you. So my interaction with you will always be an interaction of peace and an interaction of good. So a to hear is a sunnah and the highest level of the ear is Salam. And Allah instruct us whenever somebody says a to hear to you, you should respond to it. We learned from this idea that giving a greeting it is not obligatory, but our scholars say responding to the greeting might actually be obligatory,

00:08:00 --> 00:08:44

because Allah says if somebody greets you, then you must respond with a higher or at least a similar level. So giving a greeting it is good to do that. But responding is a higher level of what you are mendation and of the things we learned from this ayah as well. Allah encourages excellence. Allah doesn't want to reciprocate reciprocity only he encourages excellence of the things we learn from this idea as well is that Allah subhana wa Taala wants our societies to be societies have a HELOC and adapt because the Salam is the ultimate embodiment of a HELOC. We began our interaction with Saddam and we ended with Salam and of course, this concept of salaam it is so central to our faith

00:08:44 --> 00:08:59

of Islam and Allah has called Jana TAO to Salam because it is the abode of salaam Why is it called now to Salam? Because when you enter Jannah what will the angels do while mela eager to hear the horror? Are they human coolibah Salah among other

00:09:00 --> 00:09:45

phenomena covered doubt the angels will always be saying Salam to you and when you enter Darussalam even Allah Jalla Jalla who will greet you with the greetings of salaam salaam on Kohler, Mira Mira am Can you imagine brothers and sisters, can you imagine one day in sha Allah may Allah make us amongst those people when the people of Islam who are spreading the Salaam in this world and following Islam are called to TAO to Salam, then As Salam will greet them with the greetings of Salaam and Allah will say salam, O Allah Murghab Euro M and when a Salam says salam to the people of Islam as they entered our to Salam when Allah says salaam who can possibly harm you. When Allah says

00:09:45 --> 00:09:59

salaam How can any harm ever touch you and that is why when Allah gives the greeting of salaam that is Jana and that is our goal. May Allah subhana wa Tada make us of the people of Jana was Santa Monica
