And I bear witness that there is no

00:00:06--> 00:00:08

ilah, there's no deity worthy of worship except

00:00:08--> 00:00:09

Allah

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

who is 1, alone, unique, without a partner

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

and no equal and there's nothing like unto

00:00:13--> 00:00:15

him. And I bear witness that Muhammad ibn

00:00:15--> 00:00:18

Abdullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam is last and

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

final messenger.

00:00:27--> 00:00:29

Oh you who believe, fear Allah as is

00:00:29--> 00:00:31

his right to be feared and do not

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

die except but is a state as of

00:00:33--> 00:00:34

a Muslim.

00:00:34--> 00:00:36

Allah tells us in the Quran,

00:00:49--> 00:00:50

O mankind,

00:00:50--> 00:00:52

fear your guardian Lord who created you from

00:00:52--> 00:00:54

a single soul and from that soul he

00:00:54--> 00:00:56

created its mate and from those to the

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

rest of humanity came. And fear Allah from

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

whom you demand your mutual rights to the

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

tides of kinship

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

and give reverence to the womb that bore

00:01:04--> 00:01:07

you. For Allah is ever watcher over everything

00:01:07--> 00:01:07

that you do.

00:01:08--> 00:01:09

Then Allah says,

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

And then he says,

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

O you who believe, fear Allah as it

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

is right to be feared and always speak

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

the truth and say that which needs to

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

be said. By doing so, Allah will guide

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

you to righteous actions and forgive you of

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

your sins.

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

And whomsoever has obeyed Allah and his last

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

messenger has already achieved the greatest achievement.

00:01:38--> 00:01:39

And as to what follows,

00:01:41--> 00:01:43

Indeed the truest of speech is the book

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

of Allah. The speech of Allah is the

00:01:45--> 00:01:46

truest of speech.

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

And the best guidance to be followed is

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

the guidance of our beloved prophet Muhammad

00:01:57--> 00:02:00

And the worst affairs, the worst actions are

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

those which are brought into the religion that

00:02:02--> 00:02:04

were neither legislated by Allah nor his messenger.

00:02:05--> 00:02:06

The worst of affairs

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

and every one of those things is a

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

and every is a misguidance.

00:02:18--> 00:02:21

And every misguidance indeed leads to the fire.

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

My dear brothers and sisters, today I wanna

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

talk about in a very short brief we'll

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

go into this in-depth longer insha'amahu ta'ala,

00:02:29--> 00:02:32

the importance of the call. The importance of

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

the call to Islam, diwah. Cause we hear

00:02:34--> 00:02:35

that all the time and I've been doing

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

it for

00:02:36--> 00:02:39

over 20 years now. And we want masjid

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

salahadeen to be a home of Diawah. A

00:02:41--> 00:02:42

home of

00:02:42--> 00:02:45

calling people to Islam, a home of inviting

00:02:45--> 00:02:47

others to Islam, a home where people can

00:02:47--> 00:02:49

come to this beautiful religion. But what is

00:02:49--> 00:02:51

da'wah and what is its significance? I'm gonna

00:02:51--> 00:02:52

compress all

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

in

00:02:56--> 00:02:59

simply means to invite. That's all it means.

00:02:59--> 00:03:00

In its linguistic

00:03:01--> 00:03:04

form means to invite. To invite to something.

00:03:04--> 00:03:06

And in that linguistic sense,

00:03:06--> 00:03:07

the

00:03:07--> 00:03:10

the best is done by shaitan. He's the

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

one who's doing the most doing the most

00:03:11--> 00:03:13

effort out there. He's calling people left, right

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

and center. His dua is very effective. Look

00:03:15--> 00:03:17

at the world. Just just just turn on

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

any TV. Go scroll through your twitter feed.

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

The dawah

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

of Shaytan is very strong.

00:03:22--> 00:03:23

But dawah,

00:03:23--> 00:03:25

as according to the Quran and the sunnah

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

of the prophet alaihis salatu waslam, islamically

00:03:28--> 00:03:30

means the call to tawhidhan Allah Subhanahu wa

00:03:30--> 00:03:31

ta'ala.

00:03:31--> 00:03:33

It's not a call to a hiz. It's

00:03:33--> 00:03:34

not a call to a group. It's not

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

a call to the masjid. It's not a

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

call to a personality.

00:03:37--> 00:03:40

It's a call to tawhid and Allah

00:03:41--> 00:03:43

This is what it is. It is inviting

00:03:43--> 00:03:45

people to believe in Allah

00:03:45--> 00:03:46

with

00:03:46--> 00:03:47

with oneness.

00:03:47--> 00:03:50

Whenever you see the call of Allah

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

in the Quran, it is to believe in

00:03:52--> 00:03:54

him with oneness. To believe in him with

00:03:54--> 00:03:55

oneness.

00:03:55--> 00:03:56

And we see this even in the time

00:03:56--> 00:03:57

of the Prophet

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

because his dua initially to the Meccans,

00:04:02--> 00:04:04

even though they were pagans, they had belief

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

in Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:04:06--> 00:04:07

If you would Allah says, If you ask

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

them who sends now the rain from the

00:04:08--> 00:04:10

skies, they will surely say it is but

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

Allah. If you told If he went to

00:04:12--> 00:04:14

the Meccans and said, Say you believe in

00:04:14--> 00:04:15

Allah. They'll They say, we already we already

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

do that. We already believe in Allah. We

00:04:17--> 00:04:19

just believe all these other gods and Latin

00:04:19--> 00:04:20

Uzza are intermediaries

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

between us and Allah. He said, no. Call

00:04:23--> 00:04:25

them to have oneness in Allah

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

To say,

00:04:28--> 00:04:31

This is what Bilal ibn Rabah

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

was being punished for. Not just saying that

00:04:34--> 00:04:35

Allah exist, he was saying

00:04:37--> 00:04:39

Allah is singular in a sense that he

00:04:39--> 00:04:41

cannot be equal to anything else. The word

00:04:42--> 00:04:44

is a very beautiful word. That simple word

00:04:44--> 00:04:46

in the Quran, that very small surah that

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

we recite.

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

That Sayidr Allah is singular. And it is

00:04:50--> 00:04:53

not singular in terms of numerology

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

because we know that the numerology

00:04:56--> 00:04:58

is wahid, 1. But wahid

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

added to another wahid can become its name

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

or it can become farafa. It can be

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

divided in half. The word means that oneness

00:05:05--> 00:05:08

that cannot be like any other oneness. A

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

oneness that cannot become 2. A oneness that

00:05:10--> 00:05:12

cannot be divided. It is a oneness that

00:05:12--> 00:05:14

is singled out for Allah

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

And if you go back to the bible,

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

and I do this in many of my

00:05:18--> 00:05:19

talks towards

00:05:20--> 00:05:22

da'wah talks. You go back to the Bible,

00:05:23--> 00:05:25

and you look at the verse where Jesus

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

actually quotes this verse in the New Testament.

00:05:27--> 00:05:29

So so so it is said. Hear, O

00:05:29--> 00:05:31

Israel, the Lord your God is 1. He

00:05:31--> 00:05:32

was asked by someone,

00:05:32--> 00:05:34

oh we hear a good teacher.

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

So teach us the greatest commandment. What's the

00:05:36--> 00:05:39

greatest commandment? He said I can't teach you

00:05:39--> 00:05:40

the greatest commandment without teaching

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

you the Lord your God is 1.

00:05:44--> 00:05:46

Love the Lord your God with all your

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

heart, with all your might, with all your

00:05:47--> 00:05:49

strength and love your neighbor like you love

00:05:49--> 00:05:51

yourself. He said all of the law and

00:05:51--> 00:05:52

all of the prophets hang on these two

00:05:52--> 00:05:54

principles. That is Islam in a nutshell pretty

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

much. I could tell you that that is

00:05:56--> 00:05:57

Islam and I would be correct. But when

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

he quoted that verse, here Israel say the

00:05:59--> 00:06:01

Lord your God is 1. That word in

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

Hebrew is

00:06:03--> 00:06:05

It's the exact same grammatical structure as the

00:06:05--> 00:06:06

word

00:06:06--> 00:06:08

Meaning a oneness that cannot be like any

00:06:08--> 00:06:10

other oneness. This is what we are calling

00:06:10--> 00:06:13

people to. To single out every single act

00:06:13--> 00:06:15

of worship that they do. To give it

00:06:15--> 00:06:15

to

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

Allah All

00:06:18--> 00:06:20

all worship, all praise, all gratitude that belongs

00:06:20--> 00:06:22

to the Creator, you give it to him

00:06:22--> 00:06:24

and him alone. This is the call to

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

islam. This is the dawah that we are

00:06:26--> 00:06:28

inviting people to. And if you look at

00:06:29--> 00:06:30

the life of the prophet

00:06:32--> 00:06:34

Dawah was pivotal from the very beginning.

00:06:35--> 00:06:36

We know the very famous story and I

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

I have a very long lecture about this

00:06:38--> 00:06:39

and I'm not gonna keep you about that.

00:06:39--> 00:06:40

When our prophet

00:06:41--> 00:06:42

was alone by himself

00:06:43--> 00:06:43

in Varuhira,

00:06:44--> 00:06:45

in the cave of Hira, when he was

00:06:45--> 00:06:47

40 years old, he was looking at the

00:06:47--> 00:06:48

city of Mecca.

00:06:49--> 00:06:50

This is also a prerequisite of dawah by

00:06:50--> 00:06:52

the way. We're gonna do a dawah workshop

00:06:52--> 00:06:53

here insha'Allah.

00:06:53--> 00:06:55

One of the prerequisites of dawah was to

00:06:55--> 00:06:57

have concern for people. Our Prophet

00:06:58--> 00:07:01

was concerned for his people before he became

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

the Prophet

00:07:03--> 00:07:05

He would go and retire to the cave

00:07:05--> 00:07:07

of Ira, where he could sit and look

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

at all his people. And look and he

00:07:08--> 00:07:10

would think about the problems that are in

00:07:10--> 00:07:12

his society. And think about, What can I

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

do to to help my people? What can

00:07:14--> 00:07:17

I do to make their living conditions better?

00:07:17--> 00:07:18

What can I do to get them out

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

of their ignorance? Out of the things that

00:07:20--> 00:07:22

How can I help them better? And we

00:07:22--> 00:07:22

know that

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

when he was there alone by himself,

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

at the age of 40, Angel Jibril appeared

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

to him. All of a sudden there was

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

a figure in that cave with him. It's

00:07:31--> 00:07:32

not a big cave, by the way. All

00:07:32--> 00:07:35

of a sudden, Angel Gabriel was with him

00:07:35--> 00:07:36

and he told him what? Iqara.

00:07:36--> 00:07:39

Read. Recite. And he replied, I am unlettered.

00:07:39--> 00:07:41

I don't know how. Squeezed him Iqara. Squeezed

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

him

00:07:44--> 00:07:46

Read in the name of Lord your Lord

00:07:46--> 00:07:48

who created created mankind from a congealed drop

00:07:48--> 00:07:50

of blood. Read in your Lord is most

00:07:50--> 00:07:52

bounteous. He taught that to mankind which he

00:07:52--> 00:07:53

did not know by the use of the

00:07:53--> 00:07:56

pen. These first few verses. Then Jibril introduced

00:07:56--> 00:07:58

himself. He said, I am Gabriel.

00:07:59--> 00:08:01

I am the messenger from Allah to the

00:08:01--> 00:08:02

messengers of Allah.

00:08:02--> 00:08:04

And then he introduced him to Allah subhanahu

00:08:04--> 00:08:06

wa ta'ala that Allah is your Lord and

00:08:06--> 00:08:08

he has commanded you to worship him with

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

with

00:08:08--> 00:08:11

oneness. Singling out all worship for him alone.

00:08:11--> 00:08:13

Then he would introduce the prophet

00:08:14--> 00:08:14

to himself.

00:08:15--> 00:08:17

And he would say, And you, O Muhammad,

00:08:17--> 00:08:18

have been chosen by Allah to be his

00:08:18--> 00:08:19

last and final messenger.

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said the

00:08:22--> 00:08:25

same way that he came, he disappeared. He's

00:08:25--> 00:08:26

gone. So what does our prophet

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

do? He leaves because he feels the weight.

00:08:29--> 00:08:31

The weight of the Quran is heavy. It

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

is heavy. It is so heavy that when

00:08:33--> 00:08:34

he would be

00:08:35--> 00:08:37

riding on his riding animal, camel, or whatever

00:08:37--> 00:08:39

it might be, and and wahi would come

00:08:39--> 00:08:41

to him, that animal would bow down, the

00:08:41--> 00:08:43

camel would bow down out of the weight.

00:08:43--> 00:08:44

1 of the companions was sitting with the

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

prophet

00:08:46--> 00:08:48

and the prophet had his legs across his

00:08:48--> 00:08:50

thighs, and he started to receive revelation. And

00:08:50--> 00:08:51

he said he started to feel a weight

00:08:51--> 00:08:53

that he thought was going to snap his

00:08:53--> 00:08:55

femur, snap the strongest bone in the human

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

body. This is the weight of the Quran.

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

And our Prophet

00:08:59--> 00:09:00

his feelings.

00:09:00--> 00:09:02

So he goes home to his wife Khaneesh

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

And you know we talk about Aisha Allah.

00:09:07--> 00:09:09

You know he was she was his beloved.

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

And he and he had no qualms about

00:09:10--> 00:09:13

this by the way. He had many wives,

00:09:13--> 00:09:14

we know this. But whenever he would be

00:09:14--> 00:09:17

asked who is your most beloved? Say Aisha.

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

No qualms. But we forget about our sometimes

00:09:20--> 00:09:20

mother

00:09:22--> 00:09:23

Khadija A woman whom he loved so much

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

that he married no woman else in her

00:09:25--> 00:09:25

lifetime

00:09:25--> 00:09:27

and she used to make women jealous of

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

her long after her death. This is just

00:09:29--> 00:09:32

a side note. Once after the death of

00:09:32--> 00:09:35

Khadija, long had passed. After the Fanta Al

00:09:35--> 00:09:37

Makkah, there was some sadaqa brought to the

00:09:37--> 00:09:38

Prophet sadaqa

00:09:39--> 00:09:41

And in this and this sadaqa was given

00:09:41--> 00:09:42

by relatives of Khadija

00:09:44--> 00:09:46

And in this sadaqa was jewelry

00:09:46--> 00:09:47

that belonged to Khadija

00:09:48--> 00:09:50

And he started he saw it and he

00:09:50--> 00:09:52

started to cry in front of Aisha

00:09:53--> 00:09:55

Now brothers, I don't know about you and

00:09:55--> 00:09:56

me but you go home and try to

00:09:56--> 00:09:57

cry over another woman in front of your

00:09:57--> 00:09:58

wife and you let me know how it

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

goes if if if you if we see

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

you again, insha'Allah.

00:10:01--> 00:10:03

But he was crying in front of Aisha

00:10:03--> 00:10:05

and Aisha got irritated. She was not a

00:10:05--> 00:10:07

woman who held her tongue. She said, Why

00:10:07--> 00:10:09

do you still cry over this old woman?

00:10:09--> 00:10:11

Why you still cry over this old woman?

00:10:12--> 00:10:13

He said, Yeah Aish. He still called her

00:10:13--> 00:10:15

by her nickname. Yeah Aish.

00:10:15--> 00:10:18

She believed in me when no one believed

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

in me.

00:10:19--> 00:10:22

She supported me when no one supported me.

00:10:22--> 00:10:24

There is no one else like her. This

00:10:24--> 00:10:25

is our mother Khadija He

00:10:26--> 00:10:27

went home to her. Right?

00:10:28--> 00:10:30

And he told her what happened to him.

00:10:30--> 00:10:33

There's another small tidbit for our married brothers

00:10:33--> 00:10:34

or brothers that are soon to be married

00:10:34--> 00:10:35

or you want to get married.

00:10:36--> 00:10:37

If you ever want to know the reality

00:10:37--> 00:10:40

of of your position, just ask your wife.

00:10:40--> 00:10:41

If you have a good wife, she will

00:10:41--> 00:10:43

be real with you and keep it honest

00:10:43--> 00:10:44

with you. He went home and he asked

00:10:44--> 00:10:46

her, have I lost my mind?

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

I told you what just happened to me.

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

Have I lost my mind? And she looked

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

at him with no hesitation and said, you

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

are someone who passes no one without a

00:10:53--> 00:10:56

smile. You are someone who keeps the ties

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

of kinship together and tries to make peace

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

amongst people. You are someone who gives without

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

thinking. You are not someone whom Allah would

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

disgrace with this type of madness. So she

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

believed in him. She became of the first

00:11:07--> 00:11:08

to believe in him. And then she took

00:11:08--> 00:11:11

him to her relative, Waraqa bin Naufal, who

00:11:11--> 00:11:13

had read the Torah that was with the

00:11:14--> 00:11:15

Jews at the time. He had read the

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

Injeel that was with the Christians at the

00:11:17--> 00:11:19

time. And she said listen to what your

00:11:19--> 00:11:21

nephew has to say. And he told him

00:11:21--> 00:11:23

the story and he smiled. Wa Alaka smiled.

00:11:23--> 00:11:25

And he said we've been waiting for you.

00:11:25--> 00:11:27

We've been waiting for you. You are indeed

00:11:27--> 00:11:30

prophesized. He said you are the messenger that

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

was prophesized in the Torah. You are the

00:11:31--> 00:11:34

messenger that was prophesized in the injil. He

00:11:34--> 00:11:36

said you are indeed. He said but I

00:11:36--> 00:11:38

wish I was still a young man. I

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

wish I was still a young man.

00:11:40--> 00:11:42

And the prophet said why? He said so

00:11:42--> 00:11:43

that I could stand next to you and

00:11:43--> 00:11:45

support you when your own people turn on

00:11:45--> 00:11:47

you and throw you out. The prophet sallallahu

00:11:47--> 00:11:49

alaihi wasallam was confused by this because the

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

Asaviyyah of the Meccans at the time was

00:11:51--> 00:11:54

so strong that they would support family members

00:11:54--> 00:11:56

in wrongdoing. Even if your uncle was in

00:11:56--> 00:11:58

the wrong, you still stood by family. It

00:11:58--> 00:12:00

was a very deep mafioso type mentality.

00:12:01--> 00:12:02

He said, will my own people turn on

00:12:02--> 00:12:04

me simply for asking me to give them

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

for for them to give me one word?

00:12:07--> 00:12:10

He said, Have no doubt about this. No

00:12:10--> 00:12:12

one came with what you're about to come

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

with except that their own people were the

00:12:14--> 00:12:15

very first to turn on them and throw

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

them out. And, of course, he was correct.

00:12:17--> 00:12:19

So our prophet sallamalahu alaihi wa sallam went

00:12:19--> 00:12:20

home

00:12:20--> 00:12:22

and he waited for what he's supposed to

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

do next. What am I supposed to do

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

now? So he waited and he waited and

00:12:26--> 00:12:27

he waited. We know this from the sera.

00:12:27--> 00:12:30

And he waited and he waited so long

00:12:30--> 00:12:32

that it started to weigh very heavily on

00:12:32--> 00:12:35

his conscience. He waited so long it started

00:12:35--> 00:12:37

to disturb him. So he decided to leave

00:12:37--> 00:12:38

the city of Makkah and just go out

00:12:38--> 00:12:40

into the desert because it's a place where

00:12:40--> 00:12:41

you can go and think. So he ran

00:12:41--> 00:12:43

out of the city of Makkah not knowing

00:12:43--> 00:12:44

what am I supposed to do now. Allah

00:12:44--> 00:12:46

has given me these first five verses. I

00:12:46--> 00:12:47

don't know what to do now. So as

00:12:47--> 00:12:49

he was leaving the city of Mecca, he

00:12:49--> 00:12:51

said Jariel alai sallam appeared again but he

00:12:51--> 00:12:54

appeared in his original form standing across the

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

sky, you know with all of his wings

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

dripping with pearls and jewels. He's standing across

00:12:58--> 00:13:00

the horizon, one foot on one side and

00:13:00--> 00:13:02

one foot on the other. And he commanded

00:13:02--> 00:13:03

me, Go back.

00:13:03--> 00:13:05

He stopped me in Kamayi, he said, Go

00:13:05--> 00:13:07

back for you are indeed the messenger of

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

Allah. Go back where you belong. So he

00:13:09--> 00:13:11

went back to his house and he told

00:13:11--> 00:13:13

the very famous words to his wife, Dhamiluni.

00:13:13--> 00:13:15

Wrap me up. So they covered him in

00:13:15--> 00:13:17

a blanket. And then Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:13:17--> 00:13:20

decided to speak to him again. According to

00:13:20--> 00:13:21

almost all of the Mufasireen,

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

the next verse is to be revealed to

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

him.

00:13:26--> 00:13:28

Oh you who is wrapped up in the

00:13:28--> 00:13:30

blankets. Now he has given what he is

00:13:30--> 00:13:32

supposed to do. He's been waiting now, what

00:13:32--> 00:13:33

am I supposed to do next? And he

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

is told,

00:13:36--> 00:13:37

Oh you who is wrapped up in a

00:13:37--> 00:13:38

blanket, boom.

00:13:40--> 00:13:41

Get up and go warn them.

00:13:42--> 00:13:45

Magnify your Lord and purify your garments and

00:13:45--> 00:13:46

stay away from the idols. So now he

00:13:46--> 00:13:48

has given his job. His job,

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

Get up and go warn them. Warn them

00:13:51--> 00:13:54

what? Warn them about me. Warn them that

00:13:54--> 00:13:56

one day they will die and I will

00:13:56--> 00:13:58

resurrect them. I will bring them back and

00:13:58--> 00:14:00

they will stand before me and they will

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

give account for this life. And based on

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

that account I will decide for them Jannah

00:14:04--> 00:14:06

or I will decide for them Jahannam. This

00:14:06--> 00:14:08

is your job. So he took off that

00:14:08--> 00:14:11

blanket, and for the next 23 years

00:14:11--> 00:14:13

he would go forward and give this call

00:14:13--> 00:14:16

to Tawhid. For the next 23 years, day

00:14:16--> 00:14:18

and night, this would be his full mission.

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

This would be his full effort.

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

And I could go through the entirety of

00:14:22--> 00:14:24

the seerah with you, which we will at

00:14:24--> 00:14:25

some point inshallah,

00:14:26--> 00:14:28

and show you how almost every single bit

00:14:28--> 00:14:30

of it that has been given to us

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

relates back to the dua of the prophet

00:14:32--> 00:14:33

alaihis salatu wa sallam in his call to

00:14:33--> 00:14:34

tawhidirullah.

00:14:35--> 00:14:37

I'll give you just very one very simple

00:14:37--> 00:14:37

one.

00:14:38--> 00:14:39

And this incident

00:14:40--> 00:14:41

happened

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

on the worst day of the life of

00:14:43--> 00:14:43

the

00:14:44--> 00:14:44

Prophet

00:14:45--> 00:14:46

The worst day.

00:14:47--> 00:14:49

The tabi'in asked Aisha

00:14:51--> 00:14:52

after his death,

00:14:52--> 00:14:53

What

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

was the worst day of his life? Was

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

it the day that his uncle

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

died? Was it the day of

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

Badr? Was it the day of Uhud? What

00:15:02--> 00:15:04

what was the worst day of his life?

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

She said indeed it was the day of

00:15:06--> 00:15:06

At Ta'if.

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

It was the day of Ta'if.

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

After he lost his uncle. His uncle passed

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

away. That was his protector. That was who

00:15:14--> 00:15:15

was keeping the wolves

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

in in in in in Mecca at bay.

00:15:18--> 00:15:20

And then he also lost his beloved wife

00:15:20--> 00:15:21

Khadija

00:15:22--> 00:15:25

His comfort, his console, his his peace in

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

this world. He lost both of them in

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

a single year. He didn't know what he's

00:15:29--> 00:15:31

supposed to do next. And he knew that

00:15:31--> 00:15:33

the the wolves of Quraysh were gathering around

00:15:33--> 00:15:36

and attempt to assassinate or plot against him.

00:15:36--> 00:15:39

So he went with his adopted son Zaid

00:15:39--> 00:15:41

and he went to the city of Ta'if.

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

And for 3 days he knocked on the

00:15:43--> 00:15:46

doors of Ta'if asking for people to accept

00:15:46--> 00:15:48

Islam, trying to make Islam grow somewhere so

00:15:48--> 00:15:49

they would have some protection.

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

Every single one of those doors were shut

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

in his face.

00:15:53--> 00:15:55

One after another after another after another after

00:15:55--> 00:15:55

another.

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

Until the chiefs of the tribes of Ta'if

00:15:58--> 00:16:00

were notified, this man Muhammad and they knew

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

they had heard of him making so much

00:16:02--> 00:16:04

trouble in in Mecca, is now here making

00:16:04--> 00:16:06

trouble in Ta'if. So they called him and

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

they sat down with him.

00:16:07--> 00:16:09

And he gave them the simple call to

00:16:09--> 00:16:11

islam and he asked them for 2 things.

00:16:11--> 00:16:14

Either number 1, accept islam and protect yourself

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

in this life and in the next.

00:16:16--> 00:16:19

Or number 2, accept me, adopt me, and

00:16:19--> 00:16:20

protect me from my own people.

00:16:21--> 00:16:23

Did they accept the first one? No. They

00:16:23--> 00:16:26

rejected Islam. Did they accept the second one?

00:16:26--> 00:16:29

No. They they they rejected his offer to

00:16:29--> 00:16:31

protect him. So the third thing he asked

00:16:31--> 00:16:33

them, he said, then please just do not

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

broadcast

00:16:34--> 00:16:36

your rejection of me. He'd been through so

00:16:36--> 00:16:39

much. He said, just just don't broadcast that

00:16:39--> 00:16:42

you've turned me away. They accept that? No.

00:16:42--> 00:16:44

They called everyone to come out into the

00:16:44--> 00:16:46

city and line the streets that enter into

00:16:46--> 00:16:48

Ta'if and to pelt this man out of

00:16:48--> 00:16:50

town. Throw him out. So they were throwing

00:16:50--> 00:16:52

rocks and bricks and shoes and whatever they

00:16:52--> 00:16:54

could find they were throwing at our Prophet

00:16:54--> 00:16:56

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. And Zaid said he

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

was doing his best to try to protect

00:16:57--> 00:16:59

him but it was just too much. By

00:16:59--> 00:17:00

the time our

00:17:00--> 00:17:00

Prophet

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

left at Ta'if, he was beaten, battered, bloodied.

00:17:05--> 00:17:07

His blood was pulling down his beautiful body

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

and filling his most

00:17:08--> 00:17:12

noble shoes. And he stopped outside of the

00:17:12--> 00:17:13

city of Taif in an orchard

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

and

00:17:16--> 00:17:17

to take some rest.

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

And the owners of this orchard saw the

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam in Zayd in

00:17:21--> 00:17:23

this condition and they had some humanity.

00:17:24--> 00:17:26

So they decided to give him some food

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

and drink, and they sent their slave whose

00:17:28--> 00:17:29

name was Adas

00:17:31--> 00:17:33

They said take them some food and drink.

00:17:33--> 00:17:34

So Adas went to take them food and

00:17:34--> 00:17:35

drink

00:17:35--> 00:17:38

and as the prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam took

00:17:38--> 00:17:40

it, he said bismillah before eating. And this

00:17:40--> 00:17:41

this rang something

00:17:42--> 00:17:45

inside of Adas' pitr. This rang something inside

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

of him. He said where did you get

00:17:46--> 00:17:49

this statement, this phrase, this this thing?

00:17:49--> 00:17:51

He said, where are you from? You Adas.

00:17:51--> 00:17:52

He said, I'm

00:17:53--> 00:17:53

from Nineveh.

00:17:54--> 00:17:55

He smiled. He said, if you're from Nineveh

00:17:55--> 00:17:57

then you're from the home of my brother

00:17:57--> 00:17:59

Eunice. You know of Eunice? He said, how

00:17:59--> 00:18:00

do you know of Eunice? No, no, none

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

of these people know of Eunice. And he

00:18:02--> 00:18:04

explained to him very simply that I had

00:18:04--> 00:18:06

been sent with the same message that Eunice

00:18:06--> 00:18:08

was sent with. To call people to the

00:18:08--> 00:18:10

oneness of Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

By the time he had finished his very

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

short

00:18:13--> 00:18:16

statement to Adas, Adas had gotten down and

00:18:16--> 00:18:17

was kissing the feet of the Prophet

00:18:18--> 00:18:19

and saying to him

00:18:23--> 00:18:24

I bear witness there is no deity but

00:18:24--> 00:18:26

Allah and I bear witness that you are

00:18:26--> 00:18:28

indeed the messenger of Allah. His owners came

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

and started whipping his back and saying, How

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

dare you leave the religion of our forefathers

00:18:32--> 00:18:33

for this man's religion?

00:18:34--> 00:18:36

Adaa said, I don't care if you kill

00:18:36--> 00:18:37

me. Do what you wish with me because

00:18:37--> 00:18:39

what this man has given me is better

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

than the world and everything that it contains.

00:18:41--> 00:18:43

Our Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam was being

00:18:43--> 00:18:44

reminded of his mission

00:18:44--> 00:18:46

because at the same time this is happening,

00:18:47--> 00:18:49

Allah has witnessed what the people of Ta'if

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

did to our Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:18:51--> 00:18:54

And he became very angry. And he told

00:18:54--> 00:18:55

Jibreel alaihi salam

00:18:55--> 00:18:57

to take the angel that controls all of

00:18:57--> 00:18:59

the mountains of the earth. There's an angel

00:18:59--> 00:19:01

who controls all of the mountains that keeps

00:19:01--> 00:19:02

them in their place. If not, this earth

00:19:02--> 00:19:04

wouldn't stay still.

00:19:04--> 00:19:06

He said, Go with him and if Muhammad

00:19:08--> 00:19:09

gives you permission,

00:19:09--> 00:19:12

destroy those people. Destroy them. Allah had given

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

permission. Allah had said it's up to him.

00:19:14--> 00:19:16

I've already given the permission. If he says

00:19:16--> 00:19:17

do it, destroy them.

00:19:18--> 00:19:20

An angel Jibreel alayhis salam shows up not

00:19:20--> 00:19:23

long after this man Adas takes his shahada.

00:19:23--> 00:19:26

And the angel of the mountains is enraged.

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

He's infuriated.

00:19:27--> 00:19:29

He's ready to kill everyone.

00:19:29--> 00:19:30

And the prophet

00:19:31--> 00:19:34

is greeted by Jibreel Salamu Aleikia Rasulullah.

00:19:34--> 00:19:36

Allah has sent me with the angel of

00:19:36--> 00:19:38

the mountains and has given you permission and

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

said if you wish, he would take Al

00:19:40--> 00:19:42

Aqshabe in the mountains that surround Mecca and

00:19:42--> 00:19:44

Ta'if, and he'll push them together. And he'll

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

destroy all of them for what they have

00:19:46--> 00:19:48

done to you today. What do you say?

00:19:50--> 00:19:51

Now me or you. Yeah?

00:19:52--> 00:19:52

Us?

00:19:52--> 00:19:54

Oh, they would have been in trouble. They

00:19:54--> 00:19:56

would have died. We would have killed everybody

00:19:56--> 00:19:57

else when they said, you know, there's these

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

other people over here. There's this other nation,

00:19:59--> 00:20:01

you know, Arun that has said some weird

00:20:01--> 00:20:03

things about me. We'd have destroyed the whole

00:20:03--> 00:20:04

world in a single city.

00:20:05--> 00:20:06

We wanna fight people if they cut us

00:20:06--> 00:20:08

off in the Masjid parking lot. I've seen

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

it. I've seen it, Wallahi. I've seen it.

00:20:10--> 00:20:12

I've seen it. Us? No. We're different. But

00:20:12--> 00:20:14

our prophet alaihis salatu wasalam, rahmatullillai

00:20:15--> 00:20:17

aalameen. Have mercy to mankind. Allah said about

00:20:17--> 00:20:18

him

00:20:18--> 00:20:21

that indeed you are upon Khurbin Adeen, the

00:20:21--> 00:20:23

most noble character. He said no.

00:20:24--> 00:20:26

He said no. I have been sent to

00:20:26--> 00:20:27

guide

00:20:27--> 00:20:29

not to destroy. I have been sent to

00:20:29--> 00:20:32

guide not to destroy. He said even if

00:20:32--> 00:20:35

one person from amongst these people's lineage, somewhere

00:20:35--> 00:20:36

way along the line

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

says La ilaha illa mumma, then what I

00:20:38--> 00:20:41

have suffered with today was worth it.

00:20:42--> 00:20:44

Little known little be known,

00:20:44--> 00:20:46

some of you, of our brothers from the

00:20:46--> 00:20:47

subcontinent

00:20:47--> 00:20:48

might know your history.

00:20:49--> 00:20:50

There was a young man who took Islam

00:20:50--> 00:20:51

to the subcontinent.

00:20:52--> 00:20:54

His name was Muhammad ibn Qasim. Muhammad ibn

00:20:54--> 00:20:56

Qasim was a young man, maybe 17, 18

00:20:56--> 00:20:59

years old. He took Islam to the subcontinent.

00:20:59--> 00:21:01

But he was known as Muhammad ibn Qasem

00:21:01--> 00:21:02

Aftaqafi.

00:21:02--> 00:21:03

Aftaqafi

00:21:03--> 00:21:06

means that he traces his lineage back to

00:21:06--> 00:21:07

the tribes of At Ta'if.

00:21:08--> 00:21:10

It was a young man who came from

00:21:10--> 00:21:12

the lineage of these people of At Ta'if

00:21:12--> 00:21:14

who would take Islam to one of the

00:21:14--> 00:21:16

most populated parts of the world for Muslims

00:21:17--> 00:21:19

today. This is the vision of the Prophet

00:21:20--> 00:21:23

The dua was more important than his ego.

00:21:23--> 00:21:25

The dua was more important than his feelings.

00:21:26--> 00:21:27

The dua was more important than his life.

00:21:28--> 00:21:30

That was the mission of the prophet salallahu

00:21:30--> 00:21:31

alaihi wa sallam.

00:21:31--> 00:21:34

Whom? Findir. He knew he had to discharge

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

his duty in front of Allah Subhanahu Wa

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

Ta'ala.

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

After 23 years of doing this right?

00:21:41--> 00:21:44

After 23 years of doing this, Allah

00:21:44--> 00:21:46

commanded him to make Hajj.

00:21:46--> 00:21:48

Commanded him to make Hajj. I'm trying to

00:21:48--> 00:21:50

like I said, convince this long talk.

00:21:51--> 00:21:52

Our prophet sallam,

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

and this was the year at the treaty

00:21:54--> 00:21:56

of Hudaybiyyah had been signed and they were

00:21:56--> 00:21:57

allowed to make Hajj the next year.

00:21:58--> 00:22:00

He announced prepare yourself for the Hajj.

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

And it would be the first and only

00:22:03--> 00:22:05

Hajj our Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam would

00:22:05--> 00:22:06

make. That is why we know the rights

00:22:06--> 00:22:08

of Hajj because he made

00:22:09--> 00:22:11

it. After he performed the rights of hajj,

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

the sacred rights of hajj, would he would

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

come to the greatest day of hajj. What

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

is known as the night of Dhul Hij.

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

Yomul Hij. This is the day that is

00:22:19--> 00:22:21

known as Yomul Hajj. The day of Hajj.

00:22:21--> 00:22:23

This is the day for those of you

00:22:23--> 00:22:24

who have made Hajj. You know what it's

00:22:24--> 00:22:26

like. You're standing on the plains of Arafah

00:22:26--> 00:22:28

wearing 2 sheets

00:22:28--> 00:22:30

all the way from morning until after Asr

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

until you start your marching. And what are

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

you doing all day long? You're making dua.

00:22:35--> 00:22:37

You're begging Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala for everything

00:22:37--> 00:22:38

you could ever think of. But the thing

00:22:38--> 00:22:40

you're begging him for the most is to

00:22:40--> 00:22:42

forgive you of your sins. Because the Prophet

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

said that the the night of Dhul Hijjah

00:22:45--> 00:22:47

is the day where Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:22:47--> 00:22:49

forgives the sins of the Hujjaj. He forgives

00:22:49--> 00:22:50

the sins of the Hujjaj.

00:22:51--> 00:22:53

After that day, towards the end of it,

00:22:53--> 00:22:55

the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam was standing

00:22:55--> 00:22:57

on what is known as Mount Arafah, right?

00:22:57--> 00:22:58

Which is just a big pile of rocks.

00:22:58--> 00:23:00

It was probably much bigger 1400 years ago.

00:23:00--> 00:23:02

We've worn it down quite a bit. But

00:23:02--> 00:23:04

he stood on top of it and he

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

called all the muslims to come to him.

00:23:06--> 00:23:09

Come. Come close. I have something super important

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

to say to you. He would give what

00:23:10--> 00:23:13

is known as the farewell sermon, which is

00:23:13--> 00:23:15

one of the most authentic narrations we have

00:23:15--> 00:23:17

from the prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam. It has

00:23:17--> 00:23:19

got so many chains of transmission.

00:23:19--> 00:23:22

We know for sure without a doubt he

00:23:22--> 00:23:25

said this farewell sermon. And this farewell sermon

00:23:25--> 00:23:26

is like the synopsis for the heart of

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

Islam according to the uliman.

00:23:28--> 00:23:31

And if you read it, you'll find like

00:23:31--> 00:23:33

such beautiful lessons about the deen of Allah

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

Subhanahu

00:23:34--> 00:23:36

Wa Ta'ala. And I don't wanna go through

00:23:36--> 00:23:37

it right now because we'll run out of

00:23:37--> 00:23:40

time. But the most lengthy part of it,

00:23:40--> 00:23:43

the most lengthy transmission of it is in

00:23:43--> 00:23:44

the Muslim of Imam Ahmad

00:23:46--> 00:23:48

Because he was standing right next to the

00:23:48--> 00:23:49

prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam when he gave

00:23:49--> 00:23:50

the farewell sermon.

00:23:51--> 00:23:54

He started off by stating its importance.

00:23:55--> 00:23:56

Listen to what I have to say for

00:23:56--> 00:23:57

I do not know whether I will be

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

with you again on this place at this

00:23:59--> 00:24:01

time after this year. He felt that his

00:24:01--> 00:24:03

life was coming to an end. He said,

00:24:03--> 00:24:04

So listen to what I have to say

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

to you. He talked about the unity of

00:24:06--> 00:24:08

brotherhood, you know that the white is not

00:24:08--> 00:24:10

better than the black. The black He abolished

00:24:10--> 00:24:13

racism. He abolished riba. He said, Oh riba,

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

if from now on forward is haram, even

00:24:15--> 00:24:17

that which is owed to my own relatives,

00:24:17--> 00:24:19

it is abolished. I have canceled up all

00:24:19--> 00:24:21

of. He talked about how to treat women.

00:24:21--> 00:24:23

He talked to us specifically and said, be

00:24:23--> 00:24:25

careful. Allah has entrusted you with the caretaking

00:24:25--> 00:24:27

of women, so be careful of that trust.

00:24:27--> 00:24:29

So many things he said. But towards the

00:24:29--> 00:24:32

end of it, he said something unprecedented.

00:24:33--> 00:24:35

Something that no other prophet before him had

00:24:35--> 00:24:37

been given the command to say. Because Allah

00:24:37--> 00:24:39

says in Surah Ta'ina before us, they were

00:24:39--> 00:24:41

not commanded but to worship Allah,

00:24:41--> 00:24:43

praise salah, establish zakat

00:24:46--> 00:24:47

That was the right religion for them. Just

00:24:47--> 00:24:49

hold on to what you've been given, and

00:24:49--> 00:24:51

there will be another messenger. Then hold on

00:24:51--> 00:24:53

to that, there will be another messenger. But

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

our

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

Prophet

00:24:55--> 00:24:55

understood

00:24:56--> 00:24:58

that he was khataban Nabi'een. He was the

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

seal of all prophets. There would be no

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

more after him. But there would be generations

00:25:02--> 00:25:04

after generations who would come, who would need

00:25:04--> 00:25:06

to hear this message. So who's gonna do

00:25:06--> 00:25:08

the job? Who's going to convey the message?

00:25:08--> 00:25:10

Who's going to do the command?

00:25:13--> 00:25:15

This is a command from Allah. In

00:25:15--> 00:25:19

the grammatical command state, called into the way

00:25:19--> 00:25:20

of your Lord. Who's gonna do it after

00:25:20--> 00:25:22

me? So he looked at the Ummah in

00:25:22--> 00:25:24

front of him. The greatest nation.

00:25:26--> 00:25:28

The best nation that had ever been brought

00:25:28--> 00:25:29

forward for mankind.

00:25:29--> 00:25:31

And he looked at them and said, those

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

of you who are here today,

00:25:33--> 00:25:36

convey this message to those that are not

00:25:36--> 00:25:38

here. For truly it may be the one

00:25:38--> 00:25:40

you tell this message to may understand it

00:25:40--> 00:25:42

better than you. You have to understand what

00:25:42--> 00:25:45

just happened on that moment. Our Prophet sallallahu

00:25:45--> 00:25:47

alaihi wa sallam took the torch of da'wah.

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

It was a torch that was only given

00:25:49--> 00:25:50

to the Anbia.

00:25:50--> 00:25:53

Jibril handed it from prophet to messenger to

00:25:53--> 00:25:54

prophet to messenger. And when they die, he

00:25:54--> 00:25:55

took it back.

00:25:56--> 00:25:58

That our Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam upon the

00:25:58--> 00:26:01

command of Allah handed it to this ummah.

00:26:01--> 00:26:04

Handed it to this ummah making us

00:26:06--> 00:26:06

Why?

00:26:10--> 00:26:11

Because you convey to the what is good.

00:26:11--> 00:26:13

You command to evil and you I mean

00:26:13--> 00:26:14

you forbid evil and command to what is

00:26:14--> 00:26:17

good and you believe in Allah. So we

00:26:17--> 00:26:19

were given an honor and an 'aza like

00:26:19--> 00:26:21

no other ummah. An honor and an it

00:26:21--> 00:26:23

said that will make the other nations

00:26:23--> 00:26:25

envious of us on the day of judgement.

00:26:25--> 00:26:27

An honor and an izzah that will make

00:26:27--> 00:26:28

us the largest nation on the day of

00:26:28--> 00:26:31

judgment. An honor and an izzah that will

00:26:31--> 00:26:33

make us the 1st nation to be preceded

00:26:33--> 00:26:35

on the day of judgment. An honor and

00:26:35--> 00:26:37

an izah that will make us a nation

00:26:37--> 00:26:38

who will witness

00:26:38--> 00:26:41

over every other nation and every other prophet.

00:26:41--> 00:26:43

When every prophet is asked that they can

00:26:43--> 00:26:45

convey their message, they will say, yes.

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

When their nation is asked, did a messenger

00:26:48--> 00:26:49

come to you? They'll say, no. What messenger?

00:26:49--> 00:26:52

Nobody came to us. Trying with every last

00:26:52--> 00:26:54

bit of their breath to save themselves. And

00:26:54--> 00:26:55

Allah will say, Do you have a witness?

00:26:56--> 00:26:58

Do you have someone who would testify for

00:26:58--> 00:27:00

you that you did your job? They will

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

say go to Muhammad and his followers.

00:27:02--> 00:27:04

Go to Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam and his

00:27:04--> 00:27:06

followers and they will testify for us because

00:27:06--> 00:27:08

we testify. We believe in all of them.

00:27:08--> 00:27:11

They did their job flawlessly. That is the

00:27:11--> 00:27:13

honor that Allah gave this ummah. Gave this

00:27:13--> 00:27:15

ummah to follow in the footsteps of the

00:27:15--> 00:27:17

greatest of Allah's creation.

00:27:18--> 00:27:19

And that was so important

00:27:19--> 00:27:22

that after saying it, our Prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:27:22--> 00:27:23

wa sallam

00:27:23--> 00:27:25

raised his fingers to the heavens

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

and see he said 3 times, O Allah

00:27:27--> 00:27:28

bear witness.

00:27:28--> 00:27:31

O Allah bear witness. O Allah bear witness.

00:27:31--> 00:27:32

I have conveyed your message.

00:27:33--> 00:27:35

You gave it to me 23 years ago.

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

I

00:27:36--> 00:27:37

have done it tirelessly

00:27:37--> 00:27:39

and now I have handed that job to

00:27:39--> 00:27:40

the greatest ummah.

00:27:41--> 00:27:43

Bear witness I have kadid conveyed your message

00:27:43--> 00:27:45

and how did Allah respond?

00:27:45--> 00:27:47

Allah immediately responded by saying,

00:27:50--> 00:27:52

This day I have perfected your religion for

00:27:52--> 00:27:54

you. I don't think we understand the honor

00:27:54--> 00:27:56

that Allah gave us to be born in

00:27:56--> 00:27:58

the Ummah of Muhammad alaihis salatu wa sallam.

00:27:58--> 00:28:00

This day I have perfected your religion for

00:28:00--> 00:28:02

you and have completed my favor upon you

00:28:02--> 00:28:04

and have chosen for you Islam as your

00:28:04--> 00:28:04

deen.

00:28:05--> 00:28:07

That is on the backs of this ummah.

00:28:07--> 00:28:09

Allah could have made you a Muslim

00:28:10--> 00:28:12

and put you in any other ummah. Allah

00:28:12--> 00:28:13

could have made you a Muslim and put

00:28:13--> 00:28:15

you at the time of Ibrahim. He could

00:28:15--> 00:28:16

have put you at the time of Musa.

00:28:16--> 00:28:17

He could have put you at the time

00:28:17--> 00:28:18

of the wound. He could have put you

00:28:18--> 00:28:20

at the time of Asa. But no, He

00:28:20--> 00:28:22

not only chose you to be a Muslim,

00:28:22--> 00:28:24

he chose you to be an umm of

00:28:24--> 00:28:26

Muhammad alaihis salatu wasalam. What a favor and

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

honor we don't deserve. What a favor and

00:28:28--> 00:28:31

honor we don't deserve. When that verse was

00:28:31--> 00:28:33

revealed, Umar ibn Khattab radiAllahu anhu began to

00:28:33--> 00:28:34

cry.

00:28:35--> 00:28:37

And our prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam said why

00:28:37--> 00:28:38

are you crying? This is such an amazing

00:28:39--> 00:28:39

day.

00:28:40--> 00:28:42

Umar said something because Umar was given something

00:28:42--> 00:28:45

known as faras. He saw things that other

00:28:45--> 00:28:47

people didn't see. This is why the prophet

00:28:47--> 00:28:48

sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, If there were going

00:28:48--> 00:28:50

to be another messenger after me which there

00:28:50--> 00:28:52

will be not, it would have been Umar.

00:28:52--> 00:28:54

It would have been Umar. Umar said, Yes,

00:28:54--> 00:28:56

O Messenger of Allah. This is a beautiful

00:28:56--> 00:28:59

day. He said, But nothing comes after perfection.

00:28:59--> 00:29:02

Nothing comes after perfection except that which destroys

00:29:02--> 00:29:05

it. Nothing comes after a state of perfection

00:29:05--> 00:29:07

except that which will destroy it. And our

00:29:07--> 00:29:09

prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam said, You have indeed

00:29:09--> 00:29:12

spoken the truth. Every generation after this will

00:29:12--> 00:29:15

become exceedingly worse until the day of judgment

00:29:15--> 00:29:16

descends on the worst people who've ever walked

00:29:16--> 00:29:18

the face of this planet. This is the

00:29:18--> 00:29:20

dua of our prophet alaihis salatu wa sallam.

00:29:34--> 00:29:36

The last and final 2 minute story insha'allah.

00:29:36--> 00:29:38

You have to understand how important it is.

00:29:38--> 00:29:39

This is something I could go on and

00:29:39--> 00:29:41

on and on and on for the rest

00:29:41--> 00:29:42

of this day about

00:29:42--> 00:29:44

because it is what has fueled me to

00:29:44--> 00:29:46

continue this work for the past 20 plus

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

years.

00:29:49--> 00:29:51

I talked about the day of Ta'if which

00:29:51--> 00:29:52

was the worst day of the Prophet sallallahu

00:29:52--> 00:29:54

alaihi wa sallam's life. Now I will tell

00:29:54--> 00:29:56

you about the worst day in the life

00:29:56--> 00:29:57

of humanity.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

The worst day in the history of history.

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

The worst day in the history of history.

00:30:03--> 00:30:05

And it was the day our prophet

00:30:06--> 00:30:07

died.

00:30:07--> 00:30:10

That was the darkest and saddest day in

00:30:10--> 00:30:11

human history.

00:30:12--> 00:30:13

Our Prophet

00:30:14--> 00:30:14

was sick.

00:30:15--> 00:30:16

We know from the seerah his struggle of

00:30:16--> 00:30:18

sickness for a few days.

00:30:19--> 00:30:21

And he was laying his head on the

00:30:21--> 00:30:22

lap of Aisha

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

And one of the companions,

00:30:27--> 00:30:29

the name just slipped my mind, I literally

00:30:29--> 00:30:31

had it a second ago, walked in, and

00:30:31--> 00:30:32

he was holding a siwak.

00:30:32--> 00:30:33

He was holding a

00:30:34--> 00:30:35

siwak, and the prophet

00:30:36--> 00:30:39

was gazing upon it. And Aisha, being his

00:30:39--> 00:30:41

wife, you know, she knew him. She saw

00:30:41--> 00:30:42

that he was looking at it as if

00:30:42--> 00:30:44

he wanted it, but he was too weak

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

to really even say anything.

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

And so she said, do you want it,

00:30:47--> 00:30:49

oh messenger of Allah? He he nod yes.

00:30:50--> 00:30:52

So she took that siwak, softened it with

00:30:52--> 00:30:54

her own saliva,

00:30:54--> 00:30:55

and brushed his teeth.

00:30:56--> 00:30:58

That would become the last thing he would

00:30:58--> 00:31:00

ever taste in this world, would be that

00:31:00--> 00:31:02

and the saliva of his beloved wife, Aisha

00:31:04--> 00:31:06

Because then something started happening that she wasn't

00:31:06--> 00:31:08

privy to at the moment. The angel of

00:31:08--> 00:31:10

death came. Now when the angel of death

00:31:10--> 00:31:12

comes to you and me, it's a one-sided

00:31:12--> 00:31:13

conversation.

00:31:13--> 00:31:16

Soul come out. Either, oh blessed soul come

00:31:16--> 00:31:18

out to the mercy and forgiveness of Allah

00:31:18--> 00:31:19

or khabith soul come out to the anger

00:31:19--> 00:31:21

and wrath of Allah. That's it. There's no

00:31:21--> 00:31:23

there's no negotiation.

00:31:23--> 00:31:25

But with the anbia, the prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:31:25--> 00:31:27

wasallam said it was different. That

00:31:28--> 00:31:29

the angel of death had to ask for

00:31:29--> 00:31:31

permission had to ask for permission.

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

We know the very famous story about what

00:31:33--> 00:31:34

happened with the angel of death and Musa,

00:31:34--> 00:31:36

not the Zayam. He had to go complain

00:31:36--> 00:31:38

to Allah. But before they are asked,

00:31:39--> 00:31:40

they are shown their place in Jannah.

00:31:41--> 00:31:42

They're shown their place in Jannah. The prophet

00:31:42--> 00:31:45

sallallahu alaihi wasallam said before asking the angels

00:31:45--> 00:31:47

show the angel of death shows them their

00:31:47--> 00:31:48

place in paradise and then gives them the

00:31:48--> 00:31:51

choice to either go or to stay for

00:31:51--> 00:31:52

a little while longer. It's up to them.

00:31:54--> 00:31:56

And Aisha radiAllahu hai wa raha said she

00:31:56--> 00:31:58

started to see the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa

00:31:58--> 00:31:59

sallam look up at the ceiling and start

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

smiling

00:32:00--> 00:32:02

and start smiling. He's looking at his place

00:32:02--> 00:32:05

in Jannah. There's no higher place. He's looking

00:32:05--> 00:32:07

at the pinnacle. He's looking at the pinnacle

00:32:07--> 00:32:08

of Jannah above which only is the throne

00:32:08--> 00:32:10

of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:32:10--> 00:32:13

And he's been given the choice. He's being

00:32:13--> 00:32:14

asked, do you want to stay or do

00:32:14--> 00:32:15

you want to go?

00:32:16--> 00:32:18

And she said she started hearing him say,

00:32:23--> 00:32:24

She said at that moment, I knew he

00:32:24--> 00:32:26

was being given the choice.

00:32:28--> 00:32:30

She said, at that moment, I knew the

00:32:30--> 00:32:31

angel of death was here, and he was

00:32:31--> 00:32:33

being given the choice, and he was not

00:32:33--> 00:32:34

choosing us.

00:32:35--> 00:32:37

He was choosing the companionship on most high.

00:32:37--> 00:32:39

He was saying, oh, Allah, the companion on

00:32:39--> 00:32:41

most high. Oh, Allah can the companion on

00:32:41--> 00:32:43

most high. And at that moment, the angel

00:32:43--> 00:32:45

of death took the most beautiful soul that

00:32:45--> 00:32:46

Allah had ever created

00:32:47--> 00:32:49

and placed it in the highest ranks of

00:32:49--> 00:32:50

Jannah that can exist.

00:32:51--> 00:32:54

And that broke all of the companions. They

00:32:54--> 00:32:55

all broke. They all broke

00:32:55--> 00:32:58

when the news was given to Umar. Umar.

00:32:58--> 00:33:01

We're talking about Umar ibn Khattab radiallahu an,

00:33:01--> 00:33:02

A man whom the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa

00:33:02--> 00:33:04

sallam said if he is on a road

00:33:04--> 00:33:06

and Sha'an is on the same road, Sha'an

00:33:06--> 00:33:09

will divert his path to avoid confronting Umar

00:33:09--> 00:33:09

directly.

00:33:10--> 00:33:12

This is a man's man.

00:33:13--> 00:33:14

This is a man who

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

20 years before this had a sword in

00:33:17--> 00:33:20

his hand on his way to kill Muhammad

00:33:20--> 00:33:23

sallallahu alaihi wasallam. But when he is told

00:33:23--> 00:33:24

Muhammad is dead,

00:33:24--> 00:33:26

he could not accept it.

00:33:27--> 00:33:29

Someone whom he had learned to love more

00:33:29--> 00:33:31

than his own soul and his own body,

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

he could not accept that this man is

00:33:33--> 00:33:36

gone. So he whipped out the same sword

00:33:36--> 00:33:38

and he's walking around in the masjid of

00:33:38--> 00:33:38

the Prophet

00:33:39--> 00:33:42

threatening everyone, that if you say Muhammad is

00:33:42--> 00:33:43

dead, I will kill you.

00:33:44--> 00:33:45

I will kill you if you dare say

00:33:45--> 00:33:48

he's gone to be with Allah like Musa

00:33:48--> 00:33:49

went to be with Allah, and he's gonna

00:33:49--> 00:33:51

come at He can't leave us.

00:33:52--> 00:33:54

Abu Bakr, who had taken permission from the

00:33:54--> 00:33:56

Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam to visit relatives

00:33:56--> 00:33:57

in Safifa,

00:33:58--> 00:34:00

heard the news and he rushed immediately

00:34:01--> 00:34:02

to the to the to the house of

00:34:02--> 00:34:05

Aisha radiAllahu anhu ra'daha. She said he came

00:34:05--> 00:34:07

in and the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:34:07--> 00:34:09

was covered on a sheet. She said he

00:34:09--> 00:34:10

uncovered the sheet and smiled

00:34:12--> 00:34:13

and said you are even more beautiful in

00:34:13--> 00:34:16

death than you were in life. Kissed his

00:34:16--> 00:34:16

forehead.

00:34:16--> 00:34:19

Covered him back up. Went directly outside, saw

00:34:19--> 00:34:21

the commotion Omar was making,

00:34:21--> 00:34:24

told him, Omar, chill out. Calm down. Got

00:34:24--> 00:34:26

up on the mimbar of the prophet and

00:34:27--> 00:34:29

delivered his famous speech.

00:34:29--> 00:34:31

Those of you who worship Muhammad

00:34:32--> 00:34:33

know that Muhammad is dead.

00:34:34--> 00:34:36

Those of you who worship Allah know that

00:34:36--> 00:34:38

Allah is Al Hay. He is alive and

00:34:38--> 00:34:40

he can never die. And he quotes the

00:34:40--> 00:34:41

verse, If he is died or he is

00:34:41--> 00:34:43

killed, will you then turn back on your

00:34:43--> 00:34:43

heels?

00:34:44--> 00:34:46

Omar heard said that it was as if

00:34:46--> 00:34:47

I had heard that verse again for the

00:34:47--> 00:34:49

first time and he fell down. His legs

00:34:49--> 00:34:50

couldn't hold them up anymore.

00:34:51--> 00:34:53

There was a woman on that day. This

00:34:53--> 00:34:54

is how we finish. I want you to

00:34:54--> 00:34:56

understand the importance of this.

00:34:56--> 00:34:58

There was a woman on that day. Her

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

name was Aiman.

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

Ayman

00:35:02--> 00:35:03

If you know the Seerah, you'll know that

00:35:03--> 00:35:05

name is from the beginning of the Seerah.

00:35:06--> 00:35:07

She was the woman who took care of

00:35:07--> 00:35:07

the Prophet

00:35:08--> 00:35:10

after his mother's death. He referred to her

00:35:10--> 00:35:12

as Ummi. He referred to her as my

00:35:12--> 00:35:14

mother. If she would walk into a room,

00:35:14--> 00:35:15

he would get up and give her his

00:35:15--> 00:35:16

place. He'd treat her like a mother should

00:35:16--> 00:35:17

be treated.

00:35:18--> 00:35:19

She lived to see him become a prophet.

00:35:19--> 00:35:21

She lived to see him turned out by

00:35:21--> 00:35:23

his own people. She lived to see the

00:35:23--> 00:35:25

hijra. She lived to see all the battles.

00:35:25--> 00:35:26

She lived to see Fatimaqa.

00:35:26--> 00:35:28

She lived to see his death.

00:35:28--> 00:35:31

She started to cry profusely. And Abu Bakr

00:35:31--> 00:35:33

and Umar were there and they consoled her

00:35:33--> 00:35:34

and said, Yeah, Umayyman.

00:35:34--> 00:35:35

Why are you crying?

00:35:35--> 00:35:38

He's he's better now. You know, he suffered

00:35:38--> 00:35:40

so much because of us and because of

00:35:40--> 00:35:42

this deed. Allah has now given him peace.

00:35:42--> 00:35:44

Why are you crying? She said, I'm not

00:35:44--> 00:35:46

crying because of his death. We all die.

00:35:46--> 00:35:47

Listen.

00:35:48--> 00:35:50

She said, I am crying because the wah'i

00:35:50--> 00:35:51

has stopped.

00:35:52--> 00:35:53

I am crying

00:35:53--> 00:35:55

because Allah will never speak to us.

00:35:56--> 00:35:58

She understood the gravity

00:35:58--> 00:36:00

of the death of the prophet alaihis salatu

00:36:00--> 00:36:03

was salam. She said I am crying because

00:36:03--> 00:36:06

Allah will never speak to us again. We

00:36:06--> 00:36:07

will never be able to ask questions and

00:36:07--> 00:36:10

hear Allah talk to us. It's done. The

00:36:10--> 00:36:11

revelation is finalized.

00:36:12--> 00:36:14

When Abu Bakr and Umar understood the same

00:36:14--> 00:36:15

thing they began to cry with her. That

00:36:15--> 00:36:17

is the reality. With the death of the

00:36:17--> 00:36:19

prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam,

00:36:19--> 00:36:22

Allah stopped speaking to us. But the only

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

reason

00:36:23--> 00:36:25

is because he said everything he needed to

00:36:25--> 00:36:25

say.

00:36:25--> 00:36:28

He Everything he needed to say had been

00:36:28--> 00:36:28

said.

00:36:28--> 00:36:30

The next time you will hear from Allah

00:36:30--> 00:36:32

directly will be the day you stand in

00:36:32--> 00:36:35

front of him and give account. But remember

00:36:35--> 00:36:36

the last thing He said.

00:36:37--> 00:36:38

And this is the message we need to

00:36:38--> 00:36:39

give to mankind.

00:36:40--> 00:36:42

It is the continuation of umfah anbir,

00:36:42--> 00:36:44

The very last thing Allah said to mankind.

00:36:45--> 00:36:47

He revealed it a few days before the

00:36:47--> 00:36:49

death of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:36:49--> 00:36:51

It is in Suratul Baqarah.

00:36:51--> 00:36:52

He said,

00:36:55--> 00:36:56

fear a day.

00:36:56--> 00:36:59

Taqwa for a day. Protect yourself from a

00:36:59--> 00:37:01

day on which you will be returned into

00:37:01--> 00:37:03

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. And then Allah says

00:37:03--> 00:37:05

on that day, no one will be dealt

00:37:05--> 00:37:06

with with injustice.

00:37:07--> 00:37:09

Everybody will get justice on that day. That

00:37:09--> 00:37:11

is the importance of the dua

00:37:12--> 00:37:14

is that it has to go forward. There

00:37:14--> 00:37:17

has to be in this Ummah always

00:37:17--> 00:37:19

a group of people who are warning people

00:37:19--> 00:37:21

about mankind. And Allah says, let there be

00:37:21--> 00:37:23

from amongst you a group calling to that

00:37:23--> 00:37:25

which is good. There always has to be

00:37:25--> 00:37:27

It's a command. There always has to be

00:37:27--> 00:37:29

a group, and we are grateful and thankful

00:37:29--> 00:37:31

to Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala That from the

00:37:31--> 00:37:33

time of the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:37:33--> 00:37:35

until now, there has always been a group

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

in this ummah that has done that job.

00:37:38--> 00:37:39

Because I'm telling you this and I'm warning

00:37:39--> 00:37:41

you of this. The moment there is no

00:37:41--> 00:37:44

longer a group in this ummah or people

00:37:44--> 00:37:46

in this ummah doing the warning, that's when

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

the wrath of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala will

00:37:48--> 00:37:50

descend. Because Allah promises I will not punish

00:37:50--> 00:37:52

them while there is a warner from amongst

00:37:52--> 00:37:54

them. But as soon as they stop, as

00:37:54--> 00:37:56

soon as there is no more mourners,

00:37:56--> 00:37:58

it is over. We see even with the

00:37:58--> 00:37:59

story of Lut

00:38:00--> 00:38:01

Allah would not punish the people of Lut

00:38:01--> 00:38:04

while Lut was there. He made him leave.

00:38:04--> 00:38:06

He said, I will not destroy these people

00:38:06--> 00:38:08

while you are here. But the moment Lut

00:38:08--> 00:38:10

left the city and there was nobody else

00:38:10--> 00:38:12

to warn them, Allah brought his wrath upon

00:38:12--> 00:38:15

them. Allah brought his wrath upon them. So

00:38:15--> 00:38:17

we have to make sure because the du'a,

00:38:17--> 00:38:19

the people who are out giving the dua'ah

00:38:19--> 00:38:20

for the sake of Allah, they are the

00:38:20--> 00:38:21

barrier between

00:38:22--> 00:38:24

the human beings and the wrath of Allah

00:38:24--> 00:38:26

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. So we will go over

00:38:26--> 00:38:28

that in a long longer dua course insha'Allah

00:38:28--> 00:38:30

Wa Ta'ala in the future. How can you

00:38:30--> 00:38:32

get involved in sharing this message in your

00:38:32--> 00:38:33

daily life insha'Allah

00:38:34--> 00:38:35

because it is a command

00:38:35--> 00:38:37

which means you cannot escape it, but you

00:38:37--> 00:38:39

fit it into your life insha'Allah.

00:38:37--> 00:38:39

fit it into your life insha'Allah.
