The base Brotherhood
is not you know the fact that you are good to to those who only look like your belief like you said, it's goodness, the prophet peace be upon him said that you are not a believer, unless you love for your fellow human brothers and sisters, that which you you love for yourself.
Man came to one alum, one scholar, and he wanted to make a mockery of him. He said, You scholars, it takes you forever to make Tafseer of Quran. You talk and talk sometimes for days about what
the Quran means this. He said, The Tafseer of the Quran he said his one statement. He said love for your brother, that which you love for yourself, and the rest is commentary.
He said that's really it. He said that is the essence of it. And the rest is commentary. He said, but by the end of it, this is what we want to see that you as a human being a believer in Allah and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you love for your fellow human beings, that which you love for yourself, brothers and sisters again, humanity nowadays is in dire need of the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, the English offered. Bernard Shaw, he said, had Mohammed Salah Salem being living in our time today. He said he would have solved the world problem as he is drinking a cup of tea.
He said that's all it would take is that that's all the time that we need from Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the most according to what he said the most unappreciated personality in the West is the personality of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he saw denigrated by these people, but part of it also has to be is we have got to take responsibility for that. We can pinpoint the media and they're not good and they are just Islam bashes and what have you, but in the process, we've also we have not done a good job in presenting Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to humanity and to the people that are out there. What were the teachings of the Prophet peace be upon
him? What did it revolve around? Very quickly, brothers and sisters, the prophet peace be upon him. The greatest thing that we can say is that he was liberated. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the greatest Liberator that humanity has ever known that humanity will ever know. He made that statement about himself. Allah made that statement about him is that Mohammed You are a liberator. You liberate mankind, from many things as we will see Allah Xenia Tiburon and Nabeel ami, those who follow the unlettered messenger that was sent to them, and let them know whom to
whom they found in their own scripture, in the Torah, and in the Gospel. What does he do your moral will Morrow he commands of justice and goodness when her home and the moon car and he forbids evil and injustice, wherever you held back and he declares lawful for them things that are pure and good and beautiful. When you have them Allah human Kaaba, and he declares unlawful for them things that are impute are not good or evil. And then Allah says,
whom is wrong, and he leaves them of their burden when Allah Allah, Allah, Allah him, and he liberates them of the shackles that were around their necks. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brothers and sisters is a liberated. He was an emancipated, emancipated us from what masturbated us from number one ignorance. He said, Islam is where faith and reason intersect. They do not collide, but rather they come in harmony with one another said that's where they intersect. Ignorance the process elements a tabula rasa seeking knowledge is an obligation upon every Muslim that is out there. Male or female, the very first word that is said about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is
recite, read. And that is why they say libraries are the arsenal for liberties. If you want to be liberated, you must be educated and Mohammed Salah Salam would come and educate Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam liberated us from superstition.
Where people their lives were revolving around what day of the day is it? Did you see a black Ray when a black cat a black dog in the morning today? Does is this bringing you good luck or bad luck? Do you knock on wood every time you say something good about yourself? Somehow Salim said people. This is no sense. This is nonsense. There is why Subhan Allah on the day that his son Ibrahim died, an eclipse took place. On that day people started saying oh the eclipse is taking place because the
Son of the Prophet has died. Now Had this been an imposter, what would happen here have seize the moment, he would have said, even the sky, even the heavens are sad for the death of my own son. Say you see the evidence, it's out there. It did not happen yesterday. It is not happening tomorrow. It's happening today that day My son has died. And people are, he could have said that. But then in the midst of the grief, crying over your child, like we said last night, the worst thing that could happen to a parent is to outlive their child. What does Mohammed sauce LMC he gets out there and he said, People Eclipse with the eclipse of the moon or eclipse of sun. He said they did not happen
because they're because of the death or the birth of anybody. He said they are of the signs of the science of Allah subhanho wa Taala. As he puts it right there. They come to him and they say Mohammed, we will believe but we want you to split the moon, Mohammed we would believe but we want you to change the amount of ahead into amount of gold, Mohammed we will believe but we want you to make a spring gush out of this desert that is full of water that's going to and he says but that is not my job. I am here to liberate you from these kinds of thoughts.
not see. So that's why we say that blind faith is neither accepted nor expected in Islam.
Our relationship with Allah comes as a result of more info. And they say that more events it has
become over mankind. A mower ever came to you from your Lord Allah subhanaw taala know most people when they translate more ever, they say that more evil is what advice, but that's a disservice to the world. They say that more evil is anything that is acceptable to the intellect and appealing to the heart. It is accepted by the intellect. And it's very appealing to the heart. They say that's motiva. So Allah describes the revelation bit in the form of or an or being indifferent. In Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that which you are receiving is a mo wherever you find it appealing to you, acceptable to your to your heart, to your intellect, and also find it appealing to
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to liberate those who are economically and sexually weak, the poor, the voiceless, the faceless, Mohammed wa sallam came to speak on their behalf, saying that they may be poor, but it does not mean that they are to be exploited. They may not have much. But that does not mean that we step on them. They may not really have any position or position to brag about, but by no means it gives us a license to exploit them. Nowadays, brothers and sisters, there is a race within nations that is taking place, a race, not to the top, but there is a race to the bottom, literally a race to the bottom. A big corporation wants to move into India, they have an
assembly line. And by the way, this happened, I believe it was the rally bicycles. They had an assembly line in Colorado in the US, where people who work in the assembly lines, they were being paid 12 US dollars an hour. So the CEO of the company along with the advisors, they got together and they said Why are we paying these people $12 an hour, we can go and we can have these bicycles assembled somewhere else. So here we have an offer to India, we will pay any Indian worker in the assembly line $3 an hour. Mexico said no, no, no, no, no, we will take $2.50 an hour. Guatemala said no, we will take $2 an hour Hungary from Eastern Europe. They said we will take $1 and 50 an hour.
Ghana in Africa said we will take $1 an hour There is a race, not to the top, not to the top. But there is a race to the bottom who is going to accept the lowest wages? Who is going to accept the least benefits? Who is going to accept the worse working conditions. Why is this happening? Poor they may be but now they've been exploited because of their poverty. Poor they may be but now their rights are violated. And Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would come and he would talk about these people. He would speak on their behalf. And he would say no, no, no, they've got to be liberated. That cannot be the case. You did not deal with people the way that you're dealing with
them now. He also came to speak on behalf of those who are sexually weak, the women of his time and a good number of women in our time. Sometimes for some reason. I don't know why. But there is this rigidity and
For where Islam is presented in the harshest of manners, when it comes to issues with regard to women where everything is a punishment, everything is not seen as a form of liberation, but somehow it is seen as a form of punishment. Here in India, you've got infanticide where people were young girls are killed on the basis of nothing, but the fact that they are girls. The same thing is happening in China. They're even thinking of, of banning the, what's the machine that checks on the sex of the child, or the cold
ultrasound that tells you what is the sex of the of the child, they're thinking of banning it? Were a couple would go to the doctor and say, What am I going to have a boy or a girl say if it's a girl kill it.
did not want it.
And that practice was happening during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we will be so disappointed by the fact that they're having a baby girl, some would choose to bear it alive, kill it, and others would strangle it and others. It was a devastation for them. So what does the processor learn come in and what does he say? He says McKenna in the Obama years, whoever Allah has blessed with buena yet with girls, says fascinating him and he was good to them. The devil who raised them well, what Allah who taught them was a was a one until they got married. Khun Allahu hijab and
they would be availed for him from the hellfire.
Now imagine these, the girls, the women that were seen as a social embarrassment that you don't even know what to say to people, all of a sudden Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam saying, if you go to them, then what is going to happen said they're going to be your protection from the hellfire.
Mr. mahatama say before Islam, we did not consider women to be anything. And then all of a sudden after Islam, the processor lives at Hiram hydrocone only. The best amongst you are those who are best to their women said all of the sudden now they become the reference point and the criterion to determine the nobility of a man. Brothers and sisters to conclude, remember this, that the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam are teachings of Rama
and in it he said, Linda told Jenna, he said that you will not be admitted to paradise had Tara Hamel until you are compassionate and kind to one another. On the Rasul Allah Hakuna Rahim. They said O Messenger of Allah, we are all compassionate people. And each and every single person here is a compassionate person, but within a very narrow circle. So the Prophet said said sallallahu Sallam said, la casa, I am not talking about being compassionate and merciful, you know, in the smaller circle that your family, your aunts and uncles said, they said, Well, I can Ramadan, he said, but it is mercy to all of humanity awfulness all of mankind. And this is the only way that we can bring
back the universality of Islam, the universality of the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the greatest of all gifts that He has given us is that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was liberated. And to this, he said, and was I conclude kulu naseeruddin, at the beginning of every day said, Everyone is a merchant, or is everyone is a vendor of his soul. sobre Iran, nafsa hufa, Morocco, ha, ha, ha, some, he said, are going to liberate their souls. He said, others are going to bring about its ruins. And now the choice is, which one are you going to be of those who are going to liberate as a result of adhering to the teachings of Muhammad? sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Or are
you going to be of those who are going to bring about the ruins of yourself upon yourself? Simply because you choose you chose not to follow the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and let us take our beloved messenger of peace be upon him from just keeping him in the masjid. And let us bring him into our families,
our spouses, the way we deal with our children, the way the way we deal with our animals if we have any, the way we deal with the environment around us, the way we deal with ourselves, so that we can really have a comprehensive embodiment of the beautiful character of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam Allah Allah aleikum wa salam ala nabina.
