I'm extremely excited to be joining you today. And although I am

As we gather tonight to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and his beloved messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I pray that Allah subhana wa Taala in these blessed days, showers us with his forage, man, hydrilla and acid, right with the openings from where we not expect, or from where we least expect. And I pray that you're all under his utter protection are all and you're all in the best state of health and faith and sha Allah.
Now, this past week, something happened that made me kind of stop for a moment and really reevaluate the way I handle things with my children. So my son just turned 11. And he's a huge, huge sports fan. He plays sports, watch a sports, make some video edits of sports, anything that has to do with sports, just name it. And last week, as his dad came back, he was at ShopRite. And he tells him guess, who I saw at ShopRite. And he asks who Baba and he says, I saw Myles Johnson. I have no idea who that is, of course, but anyway, apparently he's some sort of famous basketball player on his favorite team. And my son's reaction from excitement followed by disappointment that he didn't get
to see or meet his favorite player, made me kind of stop and ponder for a while and ask myself, I wonder if I had told my son or one of my children. We just saw Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would he have reacted with the same excitement, which his tears have rolled down out of disappointments, on knowing what he missed on seeing or who he missed seeing?
And the answer kind of weighed heavily on me on my heart. I don't think so. No.
Subhan Allah, we as parents, as mandus was saying earlier, get caught up, making sure our kids are memorizing Kernaghan and doing Huttons and means and this is all amazing. And it's very important because mashallah, when they're younger, their brains are like a sponge. So we try to, you know, take advantage of that. But how many times or how many of us have the same keenness that our kids would understand what they're memorizing?
How many times have we heard of heartbreaking stories of kids, memorizing, but not able to connect with the Qur'an, string, a wave, you know, kids string away, or youth from our communities after many years of investment that their parents and their teachers put in, you know, with them from money and time and everything you could possibly imagine?
And the question is here, how can we expect them to connect when they don't understand what they're reading, when they don't fully understand who this message was sent upon? who delivered it to us? Who went through every possible test and trial, every human being, you know, could have, you know, not bear the tests and the trials that he's already selling went through, so that you and me today can very easily to shut our eyes and read in the name of our board?
How can we expect them or anyone to emulate him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and feel their heart skip that beats when they hear his name, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Sometimes we think by acting the way he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam acts that is sufficient for those around us to understand that our behavior is derived from his teachings. But that isn't always the case. Especially with our kids. We need to you know, tie or bring back everything that we do, and point out to them that we reacted or that we didn't react in a certain way, because that's the way say the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whoo
To have acted in this specific situation.
We decided not to be angry and to be merciful because see the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us that.
And when they witness mercy, compassion, forgiveness, empathy, caring for others.
That's when their heart will skip that beats.
You see, you cannot follow in the footsteps of someone you don't love.
And you can't love someone unless you get to know them.
So how well do you know say Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? How well do your kids know him? How much love do you have in your heart for him? How much love Have you grown or planted seeds of in their hearts for him? sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Do you have the love of Khadija and Fatima Radi Allahu Anhu or whatever? Or VLAN or the Allah I'm VLAN who would enter upon Sedna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his seclusion when no one else was allowed to seek permission from him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before every salam to give the Advan Yeah, How lucky is Billa to say no Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam five times a day.
Bilal who, at the time when he heard about Islam kept repeating the words had on a hunt. And he when he was you know was asked later on by the Sahaba Why were you saying these words? He said by Allah I knew nothing other than I hadn't had one god one God,
beloved, who one day honored upon him in Medina sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he had fallen ill and he's also in the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taking his final breaths and started weeping saying where has now all the pain or the agony I'm feeling? And he repeated the words of Satan Imodium? Alayhis Salam when she said yeah late and you need to cobbler harder. I wish I died and never lived to see this day.
See the love
and will Habib sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away. The first prayer came and beloved went up on the member and started calling out the Adhan Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar eyeshadow and nella Anila ilaha illallah, a shadow under La Ilaha illa Allah. And as he came to a shadow and
he couldn't mention the name, he broke down. He couldn't continue.
For three days, every time he attempted to call the again. He just couldn't. He couldn't imagine that Al Habib was gone sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
imagine after being them at the end of Medina for 10 whole years. The love your Allah
He started remembering all the memories he had with see them Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Everywhere he went in Medina it reminded him of say the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he couldn't handle it. every street, every corner every turn. So he took say no bockris addicts permission to go out and join the army and Philistine and say Navara Sadiq finally agreed. And the beloved Philistine is opened and saved. Now Amara de la handwash comes to receive the keys to Philistine and he calls out whereas Bilal and bill comes forth and they hadn't seen each other for years. And he says anything you have villas, call out the attorney or Biller,
and beloved responds, I cannot call out the adult for anyone after Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says anything. Yeah, below, you've seen the Muhammad Sallallahu ala him was here today. He would have been happy to hear you give the ADAD This is a day of joy.
And beloved starts, then Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. And the Army starts weeping. To an extent that they tell you Satan, the Hummer, Mahatama strong mountains, a huge number with all his strength. You could hear him sobbing, weeping Subhanak era
and the days past so a few months before the death of Satan Avila Raja lion or dog and he seen the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam in the dream and he tells him that hey, the hill Jaffa What is this harshness you're below Do you not miss visiting me and beloved wakes up in the morning and he takes his ride and straight off to Medina from Sham sounds like you went to the airport, you know it takes a ride. It's going to be a shocker there is you know a lot of difficulty. And he goes down he approaches the house to say no Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he says a salam ala Rasulillah and it has
Simba Husayn they tell him we miss your Advan or VLAN. And so he goes up on the member for the first time after the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is death, seven years after seven years, and equals out the other end, and the people were reminded of the beloved SallAllahu wasallam as the here the melodious voice of Bilal calling out the event like the good old days when say the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was amongst them, and they start coming out of their homes. And it said that the people of Medina were not seen weeping as such. Since the passing of Satan the Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The days pass and be leveraged Allahu Allah is taking his last breaths. And his wife is sad and seeing where has now or with sadness or with grief. And he says, Don't say that. See where for whatever say oh what happiness what happiness for tomorrow? I meet my beloved's Muhammad and his companions, London, our local Muhammad and wasa
