00:00:13--> 00:00:14

Nina,

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

Anita hora de tiempo Aeneas Moto M,

00:00:30--> 00:00:57

the sisters will be a short and sweet as we were for very long. Because what I have to say it doesn't take a lot and it doesn't need a lot. inshallah, we will discuss something that is of unique importance to this entire weekend, as well as it is of some unique importance to Muslims here in the West, as well as all over the globe. And it is a problem that we all

00:00:58--> 00:01:02

face and a crime that we all are guilty of at some point.

00:01:05--> 00:01:11

Now, there are some attempts throughout the world.

00:01:13--> 00:01:16

And these attempts are not anything new.

00:01:17--> 00:01:18

These attempts have been

00:01:21--> 00:01:27

tried again, and again, they do get worse with time. But as they say, there's nothing new under the sun.

00:01:29--> 00:01:33

But along with these attempts, there is the Muslim response.

00:01:35--> 00:01:44

These attempts are the attempts to disparage the beautiful character, life example

00:01:45--> 00:01:54

of the most beloved human being us to ever walk the face of the earth as well as the most beautiful human being Allah ever created.

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

The best of us.

00:01:59--> 00:02:01

And this is our beloved Prophet, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam.

00:02:02--> 00:02:18

And all of you know, the attempts that I'm speaking of, they've been tried over and over again a few years ago, a couple years ago now a couple weeks ago, just repetitive attempts to disparage the beautiful character, the prophet alayhi salatu salam.

00:02:19--> 00:02:42

Now, I'm going to deal with this in a couple of ways, I'm going to first deal with it on what we should be doing, and then deal with it on how we should be dealing with this show, to the best of our ability, because this is an issue, that is an issue that Muslims in the West are facing, and we are suffering, repercussion and backlash because of some of the things that are being said, and because of some of the things that are being done, etc.

00:02:45--> 00:03:03

You know, a few years ago after the Danish cartoons came out about our beloved Prophet sallallahu wasallam, which weren't as bad as actually the Swedish cartoons, but nevertheless, I gave a lecture in Ireland to defend the character of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And they gave a lecture talking about he wasn't this, he wasn't that he wasn't this, he wasn't that.

00:03:05--> 00:03:11

And a woman came up to me afterwards. And she said, you know, you spent a lot of time telling us who Muhammad

00:03:13--> 00:03:32

Sallallahu wasallam was not. But you did not tell us who he was. And I realized how deep of a mistake I had made, because in attempting to defend the character to properly set up salon. I broke my own rule, which is to never tell someone what Islam is not about.

00:03:33--> 00:03:46

So I apologize to her. And she asked me a simple question. Who was Muhammad? Peace be upon him? That's it. So she wanted to know, who was Muhammad peace be upon him? Simple question, but

00:03:48--> 00:04:12

not a simple answer. Simple question, but not a simple answer. Because she didn't want to know, entitlements. She didn't want to know he was Rahmatullah. I mean, he was a mercy to all of creation. She didn't want to know he was hurt them in that being that he was the seal of prophethood. She didn't want to know that he was dying. He was at a gym monniera. She didn't want to know any of these things.

00:04:13--> 00:04:23

She wanted to know who was the man named Mohammed bin Abdullah? Salahuddin Salim Who was that man, she wanted to know this.

00:04:24--> 00:04:26

And she was sincere.

00:04:27--> 00:04:45

But I was left a little bit speechless. Not because I had never read the spirit of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, or number of years of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, or a number of the Reverend Hadith that described the prophet SAW Selim, how he was when he ate when he drank when he slept, how he was a father, as a husband, as a leader, as an immediate all of these things.

00:04:46--> 00:04:48

It was because how

00:04:49--> 00:05:00

am I going to the Find the life of the greatest human being to ever walk the face of the globe to this woman in this short amount of time that she's given me because

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

She's asked me a question she wants an answer. She doesn't have time for me to sit down and take on a syrup course, she wants an answer. How do I define such a great man

00:05:11--> 00:05:12

to this woman?

00:05:13--> 00:05:17

So I told her a few things. And she left and then I really began to worry about

00:05:18--> 00:05:47

my inability to answer this question like this, was worried about it. So on the flight back, I asked my own self the same question, who is Mohammed de la Selim to you? Because if I can define him to myself, without having to go through a six month period, of course, then how can I truly convey that to anyone else? And that's what I'm going to give you today in sha Allah to Ayana, just like the last cup I gave in this match that I gave you a gift. I'm gonna give you another one today.

00:05:48--> 00:05:51

Because in answering that question for myself,

00:05:52--> 00:06:35

not only did I find out a way to convey the message of the greatest human being there on the face of the earth to the rest of humanity in a very short and simple manner, and who he was, I ended up defining my own self. I ended up finding out who I was, I ended up realizing who I am my own identity in that process. And I think that's one of the greatest Netmums that Allah has given me, after leading me to Islam, was to define myself know who I am. And that definition drives me when I get up in the morning. That definition drives me when things get tough. That definition put me here today, 14 hours on the road to be here was this definition is the reason why I do what I do. It is

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

who I am, and what makes me who I am.

00:06:39--> 00:07:00

We're going to insha Allah to Allah go through the life of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, no, we're not going through a Syrah course. We're going to inshallah, to Allah lay out a few things, I'm going to lay out a few things for you that's going to make this point crystal clear, there will be absolutely no chahat about this issue. When you leave here today in the Allah heeta IRA.

00:07:02--> 00:07:40

And I'm only going to give you four stories for four stories. But these stories are so beautiful, that they leave no doubt. And they define the entirety of the life of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, just these four stories, I can define the entire life of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, actually, the first one, I can define everything, but I'll be thorough in sha Allah. And what we're going to do is we're going to connect the dots. And I'm sure many of you have been here in America for a while you've heard that terminology before, let's connect the dots. Let's put some things together in an appropriate manner. And that comes from children's puzzles, actually, children have

00:07:40--> 00:08:06

puzzles called connect the dots, that is a picture that is dots that are numbered, and if you follow the numbers, it will draw a picture. Now what happens is if you don't connect those dots properly on that children's puzzle, you misrepresent the image, you miss represent the image that is portrayed by the artist who drew the puzzle, if you don't connect the dots properly. And this is a lot of what happens with the life of the Prophet peace be upon him even by us as Muslims.

00:08:08--> 00:08:47

Or what most of us do is we don't connect into the dots at all, we just leave the puzzle laying there as it is, and therefore it never truly represents its full potential. It never truly gets conveyed from the person who made the picture to you what it truly is and what it truly represents. And this is our biggest mistake. So today in sha Allah to Allah will connect a few dots. And with four dots, you can't paint a very elaborate puzzle in black and whites, but with the life of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, I don't mean wonderful. Let's begin with the first one. And all of these, I don't need to tell you where they came from the book title, the reference number, well

00:08:47--> 00:09:21

known stories, we have known all of these for all of your life and most of you. The first one is when the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam was 14 years old. And he was meditating in the local hero, the Cave of Hira in Mecca. And this is him telling his own story. That when he was in the cave, meditating as was his norm, he was alone. All of a sudden a figure appeared to him and I'm paraphrasing the stories for the time sake. He said a figure appeared unto him in this cave, all of a sudden, he was not alone. And the person who came in the cave with him made the cave become bright.

00:09:22--> 00:09:59

And that person looked at him and only had one word for him. One word for him. It thought read recites the Prophet sallahu wa sallam replied to the to the person I don't know how I don't know how to read I don't know what you want me to recite. The fig you squeezed him and said if Bara read again don't don't know how. Third time the finger squeezed him and said, para mis Mira Nicola, the holla read in the name of Yoda who created created man from a congealed drop of bloods.

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

Read and your Lord is most bounteous, taught that demand by the use of the pin that which he did not know.

00:10:06--> 00:10:23

Beautiful words that would become the initial verses allows less revelation to humanity, the most weighty statements to ever be sent to mankind and the blu rays Koran. Now this figure before him, introduces himself

00:10:24--> 00:10:33

and says, I am jabril Gabriel, the messenger from a law to the messengers of Allah. This is my job.

00:10:35--> 00:10:44

Then he introduced Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to Islam. He said, your Lord is Allah who created you to worship him with tel feed.

00:10:46--> 00:10:57

Then Mohammed Salah law Hideo Selim was introduced to himself, because you really said and you all Mohammed had been chosen by Allah your Lord, to be his last and final messenger to humanity.

00:10:58--> 00:11:03

And with those few simple words, the same way that jabril came,

00:11:04--> 00:11:51

he left gone, leaving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam with a weight on his shoulders that was so heavy, he could feel it a way that Allah azza wa jal says in sort of Russia, had we revealed this Koran into one of the mountains, you would have seen it humble itself out of Russia for Allah, the mountain would have just crumbled in the pieces. This weight is now sitting on the shoulders of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and he feels it. So what does he do? He leaves the cave, and he goes home to his wife Khadija, or the Allahu Allah, his comfort in his concert in this life. But on the way home gibreel alayhi Salaam appears one more time, but this time he's standing across the sky, with

00:11:51--> 00:12:08

one foot on each horizon. And he says to the Prophet, alayhi salatu salam, I am Gabriel. And you are indeed the Messenger of Allah. Don't have any doubt about that. This is not a dream. This is not a vision, you have not starved yourself into hallucinations. This is real.

00:12:09--> 00:12:13

So when he got home to his wife Khadija della and her, he told her what happens

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

and said, You know what, what happened to me?

00:12:18--> 00:12:45

Have I gone crazy? Khadija, the Aloha responded to him with the beautiful words, that you are not someone who Manila disgrace with Magnus, you take care of the poor, you help the needy, you don't pass anyone without a smile, you stand up for justice. You are not someone whom Allah with disgrace with madness. So not only did she believe in him, she comforted him, became the first believer in Islam.

00:12:46--> 00:13:11

Then these are the a lot of I had a relative that she knew, might have a little bit more information about this incident than she had. She had a relative named water carbon. Now for the Allah Who, who had studied the Torah and the ngl, as it was at that time, as it was at that time he had read the Torah and the Injeel. He knew about the former racial revelations from Allah. So she went to her relative and told him what happened to her husband.

00:13:13--> 00:13:29

And what are said by Allah your husband has been visited by the same angel that visited Muslim, the same angel that have visited Ace, this is indeed your real and he does not come to anyone but the messengers of Allah. Your husband has been chosen to be a last and final messenger and I have read about him in these books.

00:13:31--> 00:13:43

Now, what I met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam A little while later, maybe a few days, who knows how long past difference of opinion, he met the Prophet sallallahu Sallam A short time later.

00:13:44--> 00:14:05

And he gave him some ominous news. He had become very old at that time and was blind and weak. But he told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Not only does he believe in him, but he said, I wish I was a young man. I wish I was a young man so that I could stand beside you to support you when your people throw you out.

00:14:06--> 00:14:09

Now you have to understand that our Serbian, the tribalism

00:14:10--> 00:14:13

of the Arabs.

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

And I'm sure some of you can feel it today because it's almost reverted back to some of that, that the items in the time of Jesse Lee would support family members even in blatant wrongdoing. Even if I know my relative is wrong, I will support him anyway. Because he is my relative. It's just the way it worked. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam couldn't grasp for this one simple word he's asking them for. He's asking them for one simple word ahead. They will throw me out. What have I said, I have no doubt about this fact. No one came with what you are coming with, except that their own people were the first to throw them out. So he gave him some very ominous news.

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

Now,

00:15:02--> 00:15:46

after this initial revelation, no more revelations came jabril didn't come visit the prophet SAW Selim anymore. Nothing happened. He was just left to contemplate this task at hand. And he said it came to a point to where it bothered him. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left the city of Mecca, and went to walk out in the body and in the desert, where there was nothing. And he said, while I was walking jabril alaihe salam appeared again, certainly standing across the sky and said to me, I am Gabriel, uh, you are indeed the Messenger of Allah. Don't ever doubt that. And the prophets almost Salim said it frightens him. So he ran home to his wife, Khadija, Allahu Allah, and

00:15:46--> 00:15:52

he told her that me loony Cover me up. So she wrapped him in a thick blanket.

00:15:54--> 00:16:10

And in that position of being wrapped up in this blanket, a law revealed the next verses and subpanel law what weighty verses they are. A law says to His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this condition of being under this blanket. Yeah, you hadn't made that theory.

00:16:13--> 00:16:56

What about Africa bill? Oh, you who is wrapped up in this mantle? Get up. Get up and go warn the people and magnify your Lord and purify your garments and stay away from the idols Subhan Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam only had the first few verses of Soto Torah. He only know who jabril was. He knew who Allah was. He knew who he was. But I was telling him No, no, no, no, no, there is no more time for laying around. Get up for Indian and go on to people. This is why I have sent you this is why you here. This is why I've given you the Quran. This is why I have chosen you, above all of humanity is so that you can know now go and warn humanity about me, they have forgotten

00:16:56--> 00:16:57

about me.

00:16:58--> 00:17:14

So go wanton, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam without hesitation, through the blanket off and got busy doing his job, which was to warn mankind about a law and to warn mankind about a day in which they will meet a law.

00:17:15--> 00:17:33

And he did that tirelessly for the rest of his life. kung fu n deal, is what kept the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam up at night. confer and there is what made him struggle so much throughout the day. confined, there was what made him worry

00:17:34--> 00:18:05

about his position in front of his robe, because he knew that he had a weighty task on his hands that must be discharged, and that he would be questioned about it on the day he stood before Allah confer and they're defined him for the rest of his life. And if you think any differently, just go pick up any sera book and read it's gone for and they're defined him from this point on because everything he did after this point, was revolving around this verse, am I doing my job

00:18:06--> 00:18:09

in delegating this responsibility in front of a law.

00:18:10--> 00:18:42

So if I wanted to stand here today and say, summarize the profit for me some of the law, how do you sell him in one phrase, I'll tell you a comb finder summarizes him. This is who he was. He was a man who cared about people who was concerned about people's souls where their soul would rest in the next life. This was his concern. He didn't care about their position in this life. His care was about their soul and where it would be in the next life. That's all he cared about. And he was concerned about every single human soul

00:18:43--> 00:19:01

and where it stood with their Lord, whomever and they're defined, the greatest man that would ever walk the face of this earth. It was his son. For those who say we follow the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam? Well, if you're not starting with compa, and you've left the entire sooner out already,

00:19:02--> 00:19:11

because the Sunnah is not about how high you pick up your throat, or how long you let your beard grow, or how many times you use Miss wax. This is not the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam.

00:19:13--> 00:19:30

These are certain attributes that define him physically. His son was that he carried the message of telehealth to the world. This was his son. And this is the Forgotten son of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the most forgotten, and the most important. Now,

00:19:31--> 00:19:57

if I just stopped right here, so that's it come for Android to find him. If you believe I'm wrong, prove me wrong. I have done my job. And nobody will come up to me to prove me wrong. You can. It's not there. But I want to be thorough. So I'm going to give you a couple more in sha Allah to Allah in the next five minutes. And if I wanted to, if I wanted to be particularly thorough, I could keep you here all day.

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

We could we could continue

00:20:00--> 00:20:19

Yuma all in way past its time length I could engine start after awesome stay until the Mongolian finish again after mobileme stay after Isha continue all night, Emma Lael will do another lecture and it would just continue on and on and on proving this very point of confounding. But I think you already are getting the picture. But we'll be a little bit through.

00:20:20--> 00:20:35

Let's go to the story of Tel Aviv and I'm just gonna breeze over it because I got a couple more the story of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam lost his wife Khadija is comfort lost his uncle Abu Talib is protection, the wolves of Croatia gathering around him. He takes Zaid,

00:20:36--> 00:20:51

his adopted son and marches to the city of die if they didn't jump on a bus or or taxi or any coach or anything like that. No, they walked all the way to die and spent three days according to the most valid opinion, knocking on the doors of doing what

00:20:53--> 00:20:55

we're doing come from there.

00:20:56--> 00:21:00

And the only thing they were asking people to do was accept this message of Islam.

00:21:01--> 00:21:05

Accept the message of telehealth and save your soul in this life. And then the next.

00:21:06--> 00:21:16

Every single door was slammed in their face, every single door slammed in their face, until they were able to sit down with a notables of di

00:21:17--> 00:21:28

and they told them the message of Islam and ask them either accept Islam or accept me as a protector. Protect me from my own people. The ones that Throw him out, just like waterfall told him they will do.

00:21:29--> 00:21:59

The nobles of Thai if not only did not accept the message of Islam. They did not accept to protect the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but they laughed in his face. They laughed in his face. And this day, according to Dr. Maha is the worst day of the greatest human beings life that ever walked the face of this earth. You think you've had a bad day? Let me guarantee you none had a bad day. This was the bad the worst day of the best human being terrible with the face of this earth. The leaders of tidy fmoc laughed at him

00:22:00--> 00:22:16

and said could not Allah found someone better than you could not have found someone better than you could not have chosen one of our chiefs, or one of the chiefs of the two towns, meaning Dave and MCE couldn't have found someone better than you.

00:22:17--> 00:22:19

Who are you? We don't know you.

00:22:20--> 00:22:30

And if you're a true prophet, then we're not very good. So you're too good to be sitting with us. And if you are a liar, which is what we think then we're too good to be sitting with you either way, it's time to go.

00:22:32--> 00:22:36

His only request was that they don't announce the rejection of him.

00:22:37--> 00:23:08

Not only did they not accept that either, but they call it all the men to line up. And then the children line up after the men and then the woman lineup after the children and literally stone him out of town, beating him with rocks and whatever they could get their hands on to throw his adopted sons at trying to protect him getting beaded or bladder to Emily in the process, until both of them left the city with blood dripping down their beautiful bodies and into the feet in this filling the shoes of our beloved messengers on the law Heidi was sending them. Let me tell you, you haven't had a bad day yet.

00:23:09--> 00:23:10

In this condition.

00:23:12--> 00:23:14

Uriel Alayhi Salam

00:23:16--> 00:23:16

appeared.

00:23:17--> 00:23:20

Because after this, they went outside of the city and arrested

00:23:21--> 00:23:28

in jail and a slum appeared. There are some other stories about the door on a slave coming and think these are a bit weak. So I'm going to leave them out for the

00:23:30--> 00:23:32

jabril alayhi salam appeared.

00:23:33--> 00:23:51

And beside him was the angel that is in charge of all the mountains of the earth because Allah had just seen what had happened. He was very, very angered by the treatment of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he sent your village a Salaam with Angel, the mountains, and the angel of the mountains was infuriated.

00:23:52--> 00:23:55

And jovial greeted the profits that are more akin to Rasulullah.

00:23:57--> 00:24:30

With me is the angel of the mountains. Allah has seen what these people have done to you. And the angel of the mountains only had one request, or messenger of Allah, just give me the permission, Just say the word. And I will take the mountains that surround the cities and I will push them together and I will destroy everyone for what they have done to you. Allah had already made it Hillel, brothers and sisters are these angels wouldn't be here. Allah had already made it halau for the messenger to take his revenge. There was such awful treatment, take your revenge.

00:24:31--> 00:24:33

Now, if it had been any of us

00:24:35--> 00:24:53

if it had been any of us, those cities would not exist in the face of the earth today. And then not even a mention of them would be known. Because we will chase someone from miles if they cut us off in traffic just to start a fight with them. So these people would have been done. Long done. We would have gotten rid of all of our enemies in one day.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

But you have to understand for someone who was Rahmatullah I mean for someone who knew his job was coming

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

And they're no No, no, this does not fit my purpose. This doesn't fit my purpose. I'm not here to destroy lives. I'm here to bring them to Tahiti. So if one person from these peoples progeny comes out of them and says La ilaha illAllah, it's worth what I went through today. My personal suffering is not greater than the message that I have been sent with subpanel law.

00:25:27--> 00:25:46

This is who Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam is, forget about this innocent of the Muslims video, forget about these cartoons and these images they portray. This is the man Mohammed that they're talking about. So let them say what they want to say. The truth is glaring them right in the face, right in the face.

00:25:48--> 00:26:24

And many of you may not know. But for our sub continent community, I'll give you a small side note. You owe a lot of gratitude to the day of life. Because there was a young man named Mohammed Eben awesome. That took Islam to Southeast Asia when he was 17 years old, by the way, and his last adage to his name was photography, a coffee meaning he hailed from the city of TAFE. He came from the same people who rejected the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had the right to destroy but he did not.

00:26:25--> 00:26:26

This is what you call.

00:26:28--> 00:26:43

Cool Javi sabbiadoro Allah Allah, Allah basura say this is my way I call to Allah with not with Basia with vision. This is a vision at play. This is a man who understood, understood Pumbaa and it was his duty to mourn, we're done very quickly.

00:26:44--> 00:26:51

Let's fast forward a little bit to the end of the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam so you don't leave here today with any doubt about this matter.

00:26:54--> 00:27:02

The last year of the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam one year after the Treaty of who they had been signed, allowing the Muslims to make pilgrimage, Hajj.

00:27:03--> 00:27:22

The prophet SAW Selim stood on his minbar and he called for all of the Muslims to prepare themselves to make the Hajj to the house of Allah azza wa jal in Mecca, and he himself led this Hajj and he gathered between 120 to 140,000. companions. So panel, this is confine the work.

00:27:23--> 00:27:24

Now,

00:27:26--> 00:27:38

this incident that I'm going to tell you now is the most authentic narration that comes from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the most authentic hadith that exists. And it happened. Two days no, it actually happened.

00:27:39--> 00:28:18

On a day just like this, because it happened after yamaraja and Omar rubella who narrates the longest version of it in the Muslim Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah Allah, we're almost says after Yamanaka, where Allah forgives the sins of his slaves. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called all of us together, told us to come close to him. And he himself was standing on Jebel Rama, the mountain of mercy, which for those of you who have made Hajj know that it's not much of a mountain other than just a bunch of big rocks. And he looked at all of his companions, and he delivered to them what would become known as the farewell sermon. The most authentic hadith we have

00:28:18--> 00:28:47

a farewell sermon, the last and final statement to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to this ummah. Now what is the farewell sermon? It's what Islam is all about. It is what Islam is about. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam started it by saying how important it was. Pay close attention to my words, for I do not know whether I will be with you again on this day at this place after this year, letting the Muslims know listen, this might be the last time I speak to all of you pay attention to my words.

00:28:49--> 00:29:16

Then he told them the farewell sermon, which we don't have the time for him. But every few sentences, he would stop and he would question the people in front of him. And what did he ask them? He said to them, one day you will be questioned about me? What are you going to say? And all of the companions said the same thing. We will bear witness that you indeed conveyed the message of a lot to us. You did confirm this. And you gave us the most sincere advice. They said we will bear witness that you did your job.

00:29:18--> 00:29:35

And you gave us the most sincere advice, then he would say a few things as the same question. But the biggest part is what he said at the end. The end of the farewell sermon is something I think we have read so many times we've forgotten what it means. We have forgotten how important it is. We have forgotten what happened on this day.

00:29:37--> 00:29:46

At the end of the farewell sermon, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Those who are here today conveyed this message to those that are not here.

00:29:47--> 00:30:00

So Panama, I don't think we understand what just happened on that day. Those who are here today. convey this message to those that are not here. For truly it may be that the one who has conveyed the message to

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

You may understand it better than the one who was conveying it to him.

00:30:05--> 00:30:37

You know what just happened brothers and sisters, something Paramount just happened, something that had never happened before in history. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam held the status of a prophet and messenger for 23 years. And that job of conveying the message of Islam to the world, that job of confer and deal was never delegated to anyone except prophets and messengers ever. Allah says this and so little by ina Olmedo Illa Allah meclizine Allahu Dena Honda masala Well, you

00:30:39--> 00:30:39

know,

00:30:40--> 00:31:11

they weren't commanded anything the other nations before us but to worship Allah establish a Salah paisa that was within the right religion wait to the next messenger comes. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was cut them and Naveen. He was the seal of all prophets, normal messenger is going to come but he himself sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew that that message of tawheed had to continue to go forward. There would come generations after him who would need to hear this message. There would be other people in the world who would need to hear this message when he was gone.

00:31:12--> 00:31:38

So he took that delegated job that was only given the prophets and messengers and he handed it to the greatest or whatever with the face of the earth. Why do you think we are called to hide and omit and reject lameness? We didn't get that because a lot rolled some dice and decided to make this oma the greatest nation. A struggle federal law a law says come to Hayden omitted Oak Ridge Atlanta's tomorrow and had been Mr. woofie Witten, Hannon La Mancha manana Bella? Why because you do the job

00:31:40--> 00:32:10

of commending to good forbidding evil and why you believe in Allah. You do the job of a prophet in a messenger in his absence. That's why you are the greatest nation. This is why the Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam said even though you are the last nation, on the day of judgment, you will be first. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that you will be a witness over every other nation just like I'll be a witness. Do you understand that our Islam is based upon this statement that the greatest answer that has ever been conferred upon any nation was conferred on us that day.

00:32:12--> 00:32:12

So Panama.

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

This is what makes us so great that we know Allah, He sent me the first messenger. When not Allah, He sent me. The first prophet excuse me, when Alayhi Salam is questioned by Allah. He will ask him, No, did you convey your message to people know how they said mo say, Yes, I did. You know, I did. Allah will say, do you have a witness? No, I actually first he will ask those people. Did any messenger come to you? They will say no, no messenger came to us. Nobody came to us telling us anything about you. So Allah will ask No, do you have a witness? Do you have a witness that will prove you did your job?

00:32:56--> 00:33:37

alehissalaam his response will be go to Mohammed and his followers. They bear witness of me. And we will bear witness. Why because it's right there in our book. No, yes, he did his job. Yeah, Allah we know he did his job. The same will be Formosa, the same will be for Isa the same will be for zaccaria we will give that witness. This is the beautiful is it that Allah has guaranteed this. And we are the only aroma that our profit will be given that she found on the Day of Judgment. Subhana Allah we have to realize who we are. Our position is great, but the reason it is great is because the task at hand is great. Now let me finish when the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said pass

00:33:37--> 00:33:40

this on to those that are not here. Do you know what he did?

00:33:41--> 00:34:19

Do you know what he did? After making that statement? He raised his fingers to the heavens and he said, Oh la bear witness or LA bear witness or LA bear witness. I have conveyed your message. He swore to I said yeah, I did my job. Come for Andy, you gave it to me 23 years ago, and today I completed it. I did my job and I handed it to the greatest nation that would ever walk the face of the earth. And a lot residenziale responded to this statement of saying I did my job by saying Allium XML Tula comm Dino Kuhn, this day I have perfected your religion

00:34:21--> 00:34:37

and completed mine near and upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your deen this day. Upon this statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah said my religion to humanity is done. It is completed, it is perfected, and it is in the hands of the greatest nation. That's it.

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

What happened to us? What happened to that nation? What happened to that nation who carried the banner of tawheed all across the world? It made us so great. That not a day a person would ever think, to open their mouths of the things they say today about our beloved prophet alayhi salatu salam, they wouldn't even contemplate it. You have to understand that even if they thought

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

They wouldn't, they wouldn't say it.

00:35:03--> 00:35:44

Because they knew that there is and the honor of the Muslims was unchallengeable, because it was given to them by Allah. You could say what you want, and you can think what you want about them. But the honor that Allah gave them, is this. And that was our position for a very long time. Until we forgot who we were. We forgot our own selves, as Allah says, Those who forget their own those who forget about Allah, we make them forget their own cells. We forgot who we were a long time ago, we need to remember again, we need to remember again, and if you can't remember you need to at least tell these little children who they are, that they are the greatest nation to ever be walking the

00:35:44--> 00:35:56

face of this earth. But it comes on a condition that they live up to the status of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who gave it to them by Allah azza wa jal as will a holy cow. The Heather was thoughtfully welcome. First off through

00:36:04--> 00:36:08

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was a he

00:36:10--> 00:36:15

or she, la la la de la sharika pasado en Allah Muhammad, Abu rasuluh

00:36:18--> 00:36:56

we need to remember who we are, seriously. We need to give up this attitude of despondency. This attitude of degradation, this attitude of I'm not trying to use derogatory words which I can't use, but we need to wake up to our reality that Allah azza wa jal created you and made you Muslim, but hamdulillah Allah azzawajal conferred a favor upon you, and you are in a state of indebtedness to Allah forever, you will never get out of it.

00:36:57--> 00:37:06

The fact that Allah azzawajal woke you up, and I'm going to give you a very beautiful reminder at the end to think about today. The fact that Allah woke you up this morning, as a Muslim,

00:37:07--> 00:37:27

made you indebted, as a slave with a debt that you can never repay, ever, no one can ever repay it. And you need to remember that the laws conferred a favor upon you, and you are in debt. And that means you have some paying back to do last story. This one's very short.

00:37:29--> 00:37:51

The last day of the life of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the day of life was the worst day of his life. This day is the worst day of my life. And I wasn't there. I wasn't there. But if it's not the worst day that you have ever known, then you need to check your own email then you need to check your own email. This day is not the worst day that you've ever known.

00:37:54--> 00:38:03

The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam was sick and he was laying his head on the chest of the woman whom he loved the most in this life is Shara the Allahu and her

00:38:05--> 00:38:21

only person he loved more was not her father was not abubaker was a Buddha. This is how he stated that the only person you love more than Aisha was Abu her her father, making sure that he still remind you, that is not abubaker I love It's her father that I love

00:38:22--> 00:38:23

her father.

00:38:24--> 00:39:13

He had his head on her chest. And he was looking at a miswak stick. And she asked him Do you want it? He said yes, he nodded. So she softened it with their own saliva, or the aloe and her and he brushed his teeth. And then something happened that I wasn't privy to at that moment. But she became aware of what was happening in a moment later, the Angel of Death walked into the room. Now when the Angel of Death walks in to any one of us, wherever we may be, the only conversation that will take place between us and the Angel of Death is soul come out. That's a soul come out. That's it and the soul will respond either easily like water coming from a jug or heavily like thorns being torn from

00:39:13--> 00:39:34

a bowl of wool. It's the only way it's going to happen. There's no other way about it. But for the prophets and messengers, Emma salatu salam, Allah has a different position with them. Even the angel of death, had to seek permission to take the blessing beautiful souls, and before the prophets were taken into death.

00:39:36--> 00:39:45

Before the Angel of Death took their souls he always showed every one of them their place in gender. The Prophet Li salatu wa sallam said it before every prophet and messenger dies he showed his place in gender.

00:39:46--> 00:39:54

So I shadowed Ella and her said she saw the Prophet begin to look at the ceiling sallallahu sallam, he started to look up and smile.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

He was being shown his place in Jannah. And we can only

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

The mind will never do any justice to that image is just not possible is not possible.

00:40:07--> 00:40:30

And he was looking at the final resting place for him for the rest of eternity. And the angel of death presented him with an option. You can either recover from this illness by the will of Allah. Continue to live on for some more time with your own money. Or you can go here, you can go here. It's your choice. I can't take your soul without your permission. So panelo what I mean

00:40:31--> 00:41:09

what what kind of choice is this really make? I shared the Aloha and has said she saw the Prophet lookup and begin to smile. And after saying I saw, I saw a sola reminding this ummah, don't forget about your connection with your Lord. She heard him start to say alohomora faith when Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, O Allah, the companion, you know, most Hi, and I should only allow one I said, At that moment I knew the angel of death was here, and that he wasn't choosing to stay with us. She said, I knew the angel of death was here. And our messenger was not choosing to stay with us anymore. And he breathed his last breath on that day. And the angel of death took the purest soul that Allah ever

00:41:09--> 00:41:34

created and placed it in the highest ranks, the agenda will ever know will ever know. And this became the saddest day for every one of the confinements and if it is not the Saturday to every Muslim you need to check your Eman because that's the day we lost everything that we had. We lost the most beautiful gift that a lot ever gave creation was Mohammed sallallahu wasallam

00:41:35--> 00:41:58

even Oman, which Amato was such a fierce man, such a firm believer in Allah, that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said if there were any prophet after me, it would have been. And shaitan was so afraid of Omar that he wouldn't even not even dare confront him face to face. If Omar took one street and shaitan was on the same street, he would divert and go down another path.

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

But Omar lost it on that day and said if anyone says Mohammed is dead, I'm killing myself until I Baba consoled him and reminded him that Allah said Mohammed is nothing but a messenger. The messenger has passed away before him. But there was a woman on that day and this is the way this is the end how we end the story. There was a woman on that day Her name was Iman or the Allahu, and how

00:42:23--> 00:42:34

if you don't know who Iman is, you need to go way back in the Sierra. Way, way, way back. Home Iman was the woman whom Amina the mother of the Prophet entrusted him to

00:42:36--> 00:43:13

was the helper of Amina was the woman who cared took for the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam after the death of his mother, like his mother for the rest of his life. So for someone who says that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam does not show us how to be a good son to his mother. They must have never looked at the relationship between the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and Omar Iman. Because he treated her as his mother. He treated her the way that a mother should be treated, and she lived to see him grow up. She lived to see him become an adult. She lived to see him into Prophethood. She lived to see him rejected. She lived to see him beaten, she lived to see him exiled. She lived to

00:43:13--> 00:43:22

see the Hendra she lived to see the battles the conquest, the conquering of Mecca, and she lived to see his blessing death. And it was the most blessing death.

00:43:24--> 00:44:01

But she began to cry profusely on this day. Who wouldn't? Who wouldn't? And Abu Bakr and Omar radi Allahu anhu. They tried to console her and said, Yeah, I am and why are you crying? What the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam has given in death is better than what Allah gave him in life. He suffered so much for us. He went through so much. He's better now. He's better. Oh, my man said I'm not crying because of his death, meaning that I'm not concerned about him. I know. It's better for him right now. If you didn't hear anything else, I said, you gotta hear this. She said, I am crying. Because the ye from a lifestyle.

00:44:03--> 00:44:32

She said, I'm crying because the revelation from Allah will not come anymore. She said, I'm crying because my Rob would not speak to me again. Alo would never speak to us ever again. This is why I'm crying. And that was the true sadness of that day was that with the death of them and that the aim alone will never speak to his creation again. No more revelations will ever come. no new information from Allah will ever come to you. Until this day, you stand before Allah, and then it'll be way too late.

00:44:33--> 00:44:59

Why? Because a lot already said everything he needed to say. Allah has already said everything he needed to say. But you know, something, almost understood that statement. Much better than we understand it. They understood that yes, maybe Allah has stopped speaking to the creation. But that doesn't mean the creation has to stop hearing from Allah. They knew that the only way creation would ever hear from Allah again.

00:45:00--> 00:45:21

If they did the job that was left to them a few months ago, if they did the job that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam left to them on his farewell sermon, the word of Allah continues, and they did their job flawlessly. And we have to say, you have to say Alhamdulillah. They did not do what we do.

00:45:23--> 00:45:29

Because if they had done what we do, will law who ILM, if any of us would be Muslim,

00:45:31--> 00:46:04

Allah knows if any of us would be Muslim, if they did what we do. They did their job, and they did it through lawlessly, you are delivering results of the fact that they did their job. And you are the results of the fact that Muslims throughout history have continued to do that job, or you would not be here. What about the next generation? Who's going to tell them about Islam? The news, the media, that's who's telling about Islam right now and people are still coming to Islam. Why? Because Allah is guiding whomever he wishes, not because of what we're doing, trust me.

00:46:05--> 00:46:41

But we have a job to do. And we have an obligation at hand. homefinder Yes, it was revealed to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam but it was left for us. And Allah commended us. Oh, Elizabeth, Rebecca blackmetal, Omar, Al Hassan. And Allah commanded His prophet to say hula de Sevilla, I do ella la la Sierra, Anna, or Manitoba, me, me and those who follow me we call to Allah upon sure guidance. This is the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was that he cared about people's souls, and he cared about discharging his duty before Allah, he cared about telling people about Islam. He didn't care what position of life they had right now, he didn't care if they were his

00:46:41--> 00:46:47

worst enemy yesterday. If they want to hear the message of Islam, they were his closest companion today.

00:46:48--> 00:47:17

That's just the way it was. The message came before the man, the message always came before the man. This is the legacy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So forget about the cartoons. Forget about all of these things. I leave you with this one last thing about these stories, because we can go through and say yes, look at how the companions that was our webinar, I should have done this and we can go on and on and on about that. They had power in that day. We have no power in the world anymore. And for anyone who thinks that the Ummah has power today, you haven't been very far.

00:47:19--> 00:48:02

The daughter of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam was walking by the Quraysh, one day and they were calling her father, the insulted one. The insulted one, the one who is an insult to all of us, and she began to cry. And when she went home to her father, sallAllahu wasallam. And she was crying and her father said, My daughter, what is wrong with you? She said, Father, you are the Messenger of Allah, and they're calling you the insulted one who smiled. sallallahu sallam, he smiled, he said, My daughter, they are calling me the insulted one. While Allah has named me, Mohammed, the Eternally praised one. So they must be talking about someone else. Do you see the wisdom of the Prophet and he

00:48:02--> 00:48:14

set out to assist him? He knew that the person that they were talking about was not him. He knew that he was named Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam he know that Allah had verified what Allah Allah hooligan

00:48:15--> 00:48:56

and you are upon the most noble character. So when they make these cartoons, I don't know why we get so angry because the person they're depicting is not the man Mohammed Salah lives in Him I've ever known. They're not the men, Mohammed bin Abdullah, that I've read about this movie that they have made is not about the messenger that I know. So they have made up some fictional character character and named Mohammed. They're insulting no one but their own sounds. They're insulting no one with them own cells, because the truth is very blatantly clearing, blaring them in the face. If we begin to live the example of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in our lives, his legacy can never die. His legacy

00:48:56--> 00:49:37

can never die because it lives on with us. We are a representative of who he was. But we have to live that we have to breathe that we have to show that in our life, insha Allah Allah. So none of you should doubt who Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was today. He was confined there. A man who is concerned about people's soul, and you should be concerned about it too. And you should come and learn how to give that all properly because it is a specialized field that is only for people who really love Allah and His messenger. It takes a sincere heart and a sincere mind and a stout, astute soul to do this noble job. But that was what you were put here for. That's why Allah gave you Islam

00:49:37--> 00:49:44

so that you could give it to someone else in sha Allah to Ayana robina. Athena for dunya Hassan, Hassan joaquina

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