Things got very tough in Mecca.
So the Prophet peace be upon him, decided that Mecca was not a good place for him.
And the people, were contriving, and putting all sorts of plots to get rid of him sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the Prophet peace be upon him decided that he needed to leave this place. There was another place that was ready for him, Medina, so the Prophet peace be upon him on foot, he took on the mission with the company of Abu Bakar. And in the company of a Christian man, I'm an uplifter. Here.
They went there. And they said that on the way, things got very tough. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions were very tired, and they were very thirsty.
So at a distance, they saw a tent,
and they went to the tent, to refresh and get something to drink and something to eat.
And they get there. And they found a woman. Her name is Jose Maria. She was sitting at the door of the tent. And they say that work on it in Brighton barza. She was a woman that had presence sitting there. And she actually had a mat that was unfolded in front of the tent, a sign of hospitality in case people pass by.
So the Prophet peace upon him and his two companions, they came in and they said, milk, meat, date, do you have anything we will buy?
And the woman very graciously, as embarrassed and she said, If I had any, I wouldn't be selling it to you. I would be giving it to you. But this was a tough year for us. She said, we have absolutely nothing.
And my husband just drove the flocks, just looking for pasture somewhere. And there is nothing in the house that I can offer you.
So the processor looked around.
And he saw his sheep on the side. And he said, what about that one?
And the woman with the smile she said, especially that one is the driest
said that that ship is so dry and so weak, that actually is not even able to walk with the rest of the flock and that's why she stayed behind.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Would you allow me would you permit me to milk it? What are you going to say? I just told you it's the driest and the weakest of all and the Prophet peace upon him said, may I please? And the woman said anti vac. If that's what you want, then be it your wish, said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went on touch the others of the sheep. And sapan the love milk started flowing to them.
And the woman is looking at this issue is amazing. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fills the wall and he offers the woman to begin drinking.
And then he offers both of these companions. He's the one
Doing the milking and he is the one who's passing the milk on to people. And then he makes the statement and he said southdale coma.
He said that the person who is given the drink to the people drinks last, and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made everybody drink. And then he drank, and then he milk the goat again, and give the milk to the woman and they left.
Her husband comes back a woman.
He comes back with no luck.
His goats and sheep are as dry as he took them. And they are even weaker now on the way back, but he comes down and he sees plenty of milk. And he said What happened? He said, Yeah, but Medina, Raja Mubarak. You said, a blessing man has passed by would happen. I told him that we had nothing to offer. And he looked at the God and he said, may I and II milk the God and he gave us this milk and he milked it for us and the man looking into his wife and he said, Cecilia,
give me a description of this man. What does he look like? On the most precise, the most beautiful descriptions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes to us from this beautiful woman.
She said to her husband, right orajel en la Heron, Baba. She said I saw a man who is visibly bright, innocently bright
mood urban legend.
He has lots of continents. And his face was lit.
has an uncle.
His structure, he said is well built.
he does not have a belly that sticks out while I'm to z salon. And his head was not lacking of hair nor was his head too small. Was the moon or sci fi I
said this is a man that was very handsome.
I see his limbs and the rest of his body was this very well proportioned. fee I need agile.
His eyes were visibly beautiful. She said when she said the black part of it was very black. And the white part of it was very white.
Was the strategy was fun. wolfy salty, silent. She said that his eyelashes were long and they tended to be curly. And his voice was not course.
A Caillou as a Jew afternoon. His eyes were brick she said the white was white. The black part of it was black and the eyebrow was thick. shaders are the sharp. His hair she said was very dark and curly and glossy.
Well if you're an author, he suck. She said that his neck was long sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
his beard was full.
It is a fermata for Allah He
said that when he is quiet. He is very stately.
What is the can Lama sama, Allahu Baja. And when he spoke sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was commanding. And he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was full of honor and dignity. She said whenever he spoke, worker and among the Hazara to Muslim miniata had done. She said his words would come out from his mouth salallahu alayhi wasallam as if they were organized pearls, she said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam learned while
he would neither speak too much, nor would he joke too much as well as made a woman very sad that he is the most beautiful from a distance. A person is fascinated by his beauty from a distance
center who will call him but then he is even more beautiful and more intimate from a closer distance. The repattern Latina woman boom he was so well proportion that you would not think of him that he is too too tall
when I talk to him
and he is not repulsive due to extreme shortness
But rather he is. And beautifully she said.
She said that he was truly the middle point between two extremes. For under selesa. Tomorrow, she said of all three people that were present with him, he was indeed the most beautiful amongst them. Well, I sent home. And he was the one that really held most value.
He said that his companions were always surrounding him.
Whenever he spoke, or he commanded, they would attentively listen to what he has to say, we're either a monetary value, memory, and whenever he gave a command, they would vibe with one another, to see who would do it. First, food Massoud. She said, this is a man that has so much presence, that when he is around people around him, and he truly has a way of captivating those who are around him. The obvious one, he was not a person that found 1am would fit and he would not be a person that is repulsive. A woman is describing this to her husband, and I will not but response to this. And he said, I have a Porsche said I know it. This is the man that the people of courage are looking for.
And then he tells himself and he said, Well, I'm going to talk to your mama about the thermostat to
say that had I been here, I would have indeed would want to be part of his journey. salallahu alayhi wasallam. This is part of this beautiful description that is being rendered to us by this beautiful woman. And she speaks as somebody who's mesmerized by him, know Subhanallah, she speaks about him. And you can feel a sense of joy, as he's describing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the way that she would describe him is you'd say that, why would she staring at him like that? What No, what happened is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was so captivating, that you could not really take your eyes off him. And she's looking at him. And she's not looking at him. lustfully but
rather she is truly impressed by this man, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she is describing him. She doesn't know which part of him to describe. So sometimes you speak about his appearance. And then sometimes you speak about his silence. She would speak about him from a distance, and then she would speak about him from closed. And then she would say Subhanallah she said,
Whatever he had to say, she said, was this sweet and just smoothly flows. You know, some harmless sometimes some people are beautiful, Mashallah.
But you just don't want them to open their mouth.
They're alone. They're so beautiful. But the minute they open their minds, just Just be quiet, you know? Let us just enjoy your physical beauty, but just don't open your mouth. Or sometimes you see, we will at a distance and say, watch, this is beautiful. But then the closer they get, and the more visible. They become. You just say you know what, why don't you just move back again, you know, let's just enjoy you for this. But she said, that was not Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was impressive. She said, VTB at a distance or close enough. When he is at a distance, he's very captivating. You can't help but wait for him, said while
he was visibly bright. And then the closer he got even became more intimate with a man salallahu alayhi wasallam when he is quiet, and
that he would just be very dignified, and he will be very stately. And when he speaks. He said all the words that just come out of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she described them as just being held.
Now imagine so Pamela, that this is a woman describing to her whole husband to her own husband. What another man looks like. We'll be very offended by that. On what are you doing looking and staring at him like this? That you have actually details about his eyelashes and his eyebrows. You are here entertained by his voice and the beauty of his speech. Here you have seen that he is well proportion. But sapan Allah, he knew that his wife was talking about somebody very special.
And that's why as soon as he heard that, he said, I know what Muhammad Sallallahu
know Subhana Allah. Nowadays These are people are talking about this is the birth of the Prophet peace upon him. It was around this time, that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam was born.
And they say that subpanel history has taken a different turn. As soon as the Prophet peace be upon him was born, sallallahu alayhi wasallam and as we Muslims, we celebrate Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam
we celebrate the man we celebrate the Prophet peace be upon him. And they say that the best way to celebrate is to get to know him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah it's very difficult. Now we Muslims, we would say that we love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and believe me, we are passionately attached to the Prophet peace be upon him. No personality on planet Earth is loved as much as Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is Allah He nobody,
nobody throughout history is as loved as Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam nobody is as mentioned, often as Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is mentioned
throughout the day, somewhere, somehow around the world, there is always somebody who will say Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam read in the call of the event beat in the pharma beat inside the Salah itself. Somebody's saying Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Yet, we cannot really be truly in love with somebody that you do not know. Well, it's impossible brothers and sisters. See what happens at that point. We have an illusion of love. But truly you do not love a person that you do not know. You can't. It's just humanly impossible.
And the way that we get to love Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is by learning about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam like this woman, people who have not seen Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, yet they just love him because of the type of statements that he sallallahu alayhi wasallam would make
and the companions of the Prophet peace be upon him. They love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so much, that one day after Salah the Prophet peace be upon him looks back, and he's looking at people who's present who's missing and who is not. So he said is Oban.
One of my companions? And his name is Phil van How come I don't see him? So they said yeah, Rasul Allah who Mr. Ito Phil bait, or messenger of Allah, he's not feeling well. He is sick at home. I'll never use allow Ali was gonna let us go and visit Oban. So they go to thoburn. And they visit. So Vernon forbearances looks very ill, and he looks weak. And the processor said
what is wrong so bad? And so Ben said jasola it needless to say, he said O Messenger of Allah, I just sat down and I was just contemplating jasola law, one law in
He said, O Messenger of Allah, I would be missing you, while I am sitting in the same gathering and assembly with you. Now usually, when do we miss people,
when they no longer visible when we leave, or when they leave? But he said prophet of Allah, I will be sitting in the same gathering with you and I am already missing you.
Then he said and prophet of Allah, I just kept going with my thinking. He said,
No at hallelujah love, no pain in America.
If it happens that my abode in the Hereafter is the Hellfire, it means that I will never see.
And then he said, when a talent will generate a new hobby of those who are admitted to paradise, the indemand zeylanica alarming mentality that you will be in a higher degree ranking station than I and I will not see you as much as I want jasola life and Ronnie has
the thought of just being deprived of seeing you or messenger of Allah just made me sick.
Gotta have a sermon.
So the profit ratio for him smile, and he said, Yeah, soba, or filburn. He said, You shall.
We should also ban a man will be resurrected in the company of the people whom he loved in this world.
The companion sitting there and they said, that was the most beautiful statement that we heard from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because we all know that we truly love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
in the midst of, you know, people calling to whether to celebrate or not celebrate and that is not the point, but the issue is
Now this is how we Muslims view the Prophet peace be upon him, the best of creation, the most beautiful of men.
the humblest of all the most beautiful of characters sallallahu alayhi wasallam nobody knows more tolerance than the Prophet peace be upon him, even with his enemies. And Subhan Allah Mohammed Salah salam, what makes him so special is his consistency.
You know when a man goes after a cause for 23 years, and if you check with him on day one, and you check with him 23 years later, and the message remains to be the same. Now that is impressive.
When you check with the man at his weakest, and the message is the same, and you check with him again, at his strongest, and the message remains to be the same. Now that is impressive.
On day one, he announces that rahmatan Lin alameen that I am here as a mercy to mankind. Take a week. Look at how many people are there around you. You know this describing the Prophet peace be upon him as Rahmatullah al amin is mentioned in nine different places of the Quran. I want you to pay attention to this. Allah describes the Prophet peace be upon him as a mercy to mankind in nine different places in the Quran. But what is interesting about all nine places is that they were all in Makkah.
Now this is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, was most annoyed, most persecuted, most aggression is taking place. And the man is saying, I am here as a mercy to mankind, including the people who are doing this to me. This is his message on day one. Check with him 42 days before his death, what is he doing? conquest of Mecca comes
and people are excited. So that the people were excited that they are going to go to Mecca, and they're going to take knock about 23 years or 13 years later, 23 years after his initial call to Islam, said that Sadiq Nevada, was holding a sword. And he took the sword. Now this is the Prophet peace, peace be upon him at his strongest. He took the sword and what does he say? He's waving the sword. And he's dancing with it. And he's walking around with it and he's saying, a yo yo Mel hammer. Today, it's going to be a slaughterhouse because
and yo wheel mill hammer, said today is the day of slaughterhouse. He said, Allah, Allah, yo, yo will mahama he said today is the day of compassion. And he took the sword from the man. But somehow Allah he's Allahu alayhi wa sallam was also a very considerate man. He took the sword from Nevada, and handed it over to his son
said because of that statement, you can really be holding that sword, but we'll keep it with your family.
And he went there. And 23 years later, the message has not changed, the message remains to be the same, and that is
compassion and mercy to mankind. Now here is the sad part.
If we asked non Muslims today, what do they think of Muhammad? sallallahu alayhi wasallam what would you eat, or the man is a terrorist.
The man is a pedophile. He made the six year old girl. The man was out there to kill people and he commanded his companions whosoever does not convert, you just go ahead and kill him. You're really talking about the same Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam that we know of. But see, what happens is that there is a difference between claiming love and association with Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam and whether we are truly associated to Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because sometimes many evil deeds take place in the name of Mohammed Salah while he was alive, and please do not be offended by this. It is best that we say like it is many times out where people do the worst
kind of these and they do it in the name of Allah and in the name of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam What do you expect people to do? Of course, they are going to get that type of impression about him following him, not because he is like that, but rather because of how we named him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam appears to be.
So we would say that people thrown
impression of Islam is unfortunately many times people's right impression of the Muslims.
That is why we're being taught. And so beautifully said, No, I'm not upset it said Eva de la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la la la, you shadow people, to not be the cause of people hating Allah and being hated by Allah.
Because many times people would do things and they would associate it with Allah and people would say, if that is how God is, I want nothing to do with that God.
I want nothing to do with Allah simply because of the way that Allah is being presented, said, let me know honkala illa Do not be the cause of why people despise
and they become angry at God, because of what you make God sound like the
person who beats his wife and tells people that an Islamic okay.
A person who steals from non Muslims, cheats on their credit cards. And then they say Islam says it's okay.
People who fool others get married to them because they are after improving their legal status.
And they say that it's okay. Because Islam said okay, so Islam says okay to manipulate, it's fun. It's okay to cheat. It's fun to play to deceive. You know what? I don't want that slot. That kind of Islam is just not really, that's just not for me, man.
That is not the Mohammed who is being presented to us. Please listen to what Gandhi said about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said
I wanted to know
the best of one who holds today's undisputed display over the hearts of millions of mankind. You know you see Muslims to pound a lot you know we Muslims are interesting people. On the one hand, we have so much passion and love for the Prophet peace be upon him you put on goofy like Mohammed Salim keep your bead like Francis shorten your trousers like Hamza Silla, going with your right foot, Mohammed Salam take off with your left hand. So we do everything. So this man is looking and he said, I just want to see who in the world is this person. So he started reading the biography of the Prophet peace be upon him. He said, I became more than convinced that it was not the sword that won
a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. He said, anybody who tells you that Islam was spread by this, I said, Don't don't believe them. He said, rather, it was the rigid simplicity, the outer self effacement of the Prophet, the scrupulous regard for his pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, meaning his courage, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. He goes on to say, he said, V's are not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle. Listen to this last line, I love this line. He said, when I close the second volume, is reading the biography of the process. And he's done with
it. He said, he said, That was two volumes. He said, Now that I am closing the second volume, he said, I was sorry
that there was no more for me to read.
said I was sorry that such a life said it's coming to end and I have to fold the book and said, that's all I can know about helmets on.
The way to celebrate the Prophet peace be upon him, is begin by knowing the Prophet peace be upon him, and then becoming like the Prophet peace be upon him. Apollo only heard there was such a lovely welcome first of Filipino Hola.
Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Mustafa alum and the authority of
the beauty of becoming like the Prophet peace be upon him brothers and sisters, is not by physically appearing to be like the Prophet peace be upon him a lot. It is not by simply physically appearing to be like the Prophet peace be upon him. Now we tend to grow our beard and we tend up. Don't get me wrong. I think these are things but they are not necessarily the most important things about whom Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Maha Sangha did not want us to be like him in what he looked like, but rather in what he was like sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the Prophet peace be upon him would say look, you want to be like the Prophet peace be upon him. Be compassionate.
You want to be like the Prophet peace be upon him be considered. You want to be like the Prophet peace be upon him, be patient. You want to be like the Prophet peace be upon him. Be sweet. Want to be like the Prophet peace be upon him, be good to your neighbors, be good to your spouse, be with your children, be good to your parents, and so on. And we say that I do what I do. Because I want to be like Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam Do you know how much effort it takes to grow a beard?
don't shave it. Take he can really be telling me that by me not doing this unbecoming. Like Hans has no earthly what we are saying is that being like Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes beyond the physical appearance. We want to be like him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in his physical, not only in his physical, but rather in his character, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And now it's really not the time to set a debate on whether the day of the birth of the Prophet peace be upon him ought to be celebrated or not. I'll say that let us rather celebrate Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam humanity has been deprived of his teachings. And the best way to reintroduce the teachings of the
Prophet peace be upon him is by giving and displaying a more beautiful image, not the image of kidnapping people, not the image of killing the innocent. So the image of the bombings and the killings and the atrocity that takes place in the name of Islam. It's got nothing to do with the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala please insha Allah let's keep in our prayers, those who are not feeling well was informed that one of your community members uncle Hussein went through a surgery may Allah Subhana Allah grant him a speedy recovery herbal al Ameen, and to all the people who are not feeling well and to all our brothers and sisters who are going through any kind of difficulty,
may Allah Subhana Allah ease their difficulty tshabalala mean. So I also like to remind you of a really important fundraising that is taking place this coming Sunday Access California Family Resource Center, a social service agency that I myself have the honor of working for. We have our annual gala that is taking place this Sunday inshallah congressman Andre Carson, who's going to be our speaker, I do have the tickets outside if you are able to make it we would love to see you there.
