Channel: Yusha Evans
A small reminder, I always like to start our scheduled live streams with a short reminder in sha Allah who to Allah, so that there is some carryover some benefit, and what we're trying to accomplish here.
You know, I've traveled for, you know, many years now traveling the globe giving different talks giving different lectures, and the ones that have always affected me the most and when I look back on them, they're also the ones that I seem to become most emotional on. Number one, are when I talk about the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala when I talk about Jana, and jahannam, those really affected me deeply. But the second one and the one that never fails to get me teared up is when I talk about our beloved messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
These are the ones that that get me the most because of the immense love that I have for our messenger Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. We are taught to love him more than we love our own souls. This is narrated by Amara Imola, Barbara the other one, when he told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, O Messenger of Allah, I love you more than I love anyone else except but my own soul. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam told him no, Omar, you don't have true faith, unless you make me more beloved than your mother, your father, your children, or an all of mankind including your own soul. He said, or messenger of Allah, I swear I love you more than I love
my own soul. So that was something that was important to him by the prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. Allah subhanho wa Taala also talks repetitively in the Quran, about the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and encourages us not just telling us to love him. But Allah tells us say if you love Allah, you know and you love as messenger.
The Prophet was commanded to if you love Allah, follow me. Allah will love you and give you a sense, but also all of the attributes that are given to us by Allah Subhana Allah, about the Prophet Lisa do son should instill love in our hearts. Allah calls him Rahmatullah, right I mean, there is a mercy to all of mankind. Allah Subhana Allah says he is that you know that he loved me even though he was Sergio monniera he is a caller to about to Allah by Allah permission and a lamp giving Beautiful, beautiful light.
Allah tells us that indeed in the Messenger of Allah is us within hacer una is a great example to be followed. So this love is instilled deep inside of us. And the reason I am saying this is because, you know, you see the resurgence of Islamophobia. And the target is the the percentage of the Prophet Muhammad Ali salatu salam, which has happened many times in history and the main times in our history. And we know it recently happened again, in France with the French President Macron. But you know, when we deal with these types of situations, I always look at them because that, you know, I've had so many people and being involved in that role for so long, I've had so many people come to
me, you know, with spreading the, the the known slanders and lies against the messenger, so my head it will send them.
And, you know, my response is always
I can't defend your accusations simply because they're untrue. And the person whom you speak about is not the person whom I follow some of the law had he was sending these cartoons they made art, that's not they meant it to be a representation of are properly set out to a set. But what they have created is an image that is of their own making in their own fantasy. It's, it's, it's, it's fiction, because it none of it resents, right none of it represents the messenger Muhammad Ali salatu salam that I know and that I love.
So we set that to the side. And we deal with that by showing the true example in messenger ship of Muhammad Ali salatu salam number one by trying to exemplify that exemplify that in our own lives. And this is something I always tell brothers and sisters, that whether you want to be involved in that hour or not, which we're going to talk about on the next stream on Friday insha Allah, whether you want to be involved in that or not the fact that you are an outward and Muslim the fact that you are an outward Muslim is
automatically makes you part of the derawan because people see Muslims and judge Islam and we always try to say don't do that don't that's the way it is going to be. And that's also the way Allah subhana wa tada designed it, because Allah says this ummah, your ummah.
Don't worry, that it is one oma, what hon comfortable doing and I am your Lord, therefore worship me the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said we are like the bricks of a building, each supporting one another. We are like the teeth of a comb. You know if the Muslim is like one body if the eye hurts, or the eye is injured, or one part is injured, the entire body feels pain and responds to that. So, we are one body, we are one body so we are going to be judged together. That doesn't mean we need to be perfect angels. No, of course not I talk about that so much is that we are human beings. But we also need to try to keep as much as of our sins and as much as about evil between ourselves and
Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is not hypocrisy. hypocrisy is when you
say different to that which you believe when you believe.
hiding your sins and hiding your evil from others is called the higher it's called having chain in front of Allah subhana wa Ayana to go out and misrepresent yourself as a Muslim to the world. So our response to this is to try to the best of our abilities show the beautiful example of the messenger Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And let the world see that if they all these people who have feign hatred towards Islam, they they are doing nothing but creating a fictional character which they are trying to disrespect to the properties that was to them. And they are doing nothing but disrespecting themselves, disrespecting themselves, and showing their true ignorance because not a
single person of, of respect. Throughout history, scholars of respect throughout history, non Muslim scholars of respect throughout history have doted upon the the character of our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. And that's well known. So we are supposed to love him. And this also means we defend the honor of the Prophet, several more hiding, we send them, we defend his honor the same way you would defend the honor of your own mother, or your brother or the Father, we are angered by these things, yes, but we have to deal with that in a rational manner, a rational manner, not like for like, you know,
they are not our teachers and teaching us how to behave, and how to have civility. So we will do the best that we can to show our love for the Prophet lays that out to Islam, he did so much for us. And I will end there's so many things I could tell you. But I think there are plenty of my lectures that are available on YouTube. If you use Google, you should Evans the Prophet Muhammad and the Prophet Mohammed or the love of the Prophet alayhi wa sallam.
I'm forgetting the name of that talk. Maybe if I remember about the chat, I'll post it up there, where I talk about the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam. But I will give you one Hadith that shows us the true compassion and mercy. The Prophet Muhammad Allah he set out to a certain had for us.
Now we know every single Prophet was given by Allah and then you'll find this out more through the Hadeeth one two, that they were allowed to use for anything with impermissibility. And Allah subhana wa Taala, guaranteed, he would grant them fat. This is one of the worries of a new na serum. When he meets a loan, that the adjustment and the profit Lisa that was to them say every one of them use their do it during their lifetime.
When no is approached on the day of Yama, he will say, I cannot intercede for you on behalf of intercede on your behalf in front of Allah, because Allah gave me one door. And I use it as my own people. So the destruction of the people of New was because he made due to Allah using that. One Free to offer anything to destroy his people. And this is what caused the flooding and all of these things. So every prophet had this new idea that they can use, you know, we don't know, other prophets, but maybe Jesus at a stem use that door. And that's the reason why he was saved from the crucifixion, because he made our fault Let's save him from that. So every prophet had this door. Now
no prophet suffered on the levels like our messenger, Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. He suffered so greatly for the truth so greatly for his Lord so greatly for his nation. So many things when his uncle Abu Talib died without Islam, when you know, the loss of the Battle of mother all of these things, you know, he could have used his door. But he said that one day or that was given to me. I saved it for you. I saved it for you. So Pamela, why for us? He said, because in the Day of Judgment, mankind will run to Adam and ask him to intercede and he won't be able to intercede because he'll say Allah is too angry and I disobeyed him in the garden. No, same thing. I use my do
I guess my people Moosa, I killed the man, you know.
every prophet will come forward Jesus, they worship me like I was alone. Allah is angry.
Like he's never been on this date. So
we won't be able to go to anyone but when we go to Jesus peace be upon him, he will say go to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he will not refuse you. So we will go to our messenger and he set out to a ceremony, we'll ask him to intercede with us, in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he will not refuse us. He will go before Allah, He says, and make sujood and stay in that position for as long as the law wishes. And then Allah will tell him stand up, come and ask me stand up and ask me and anything you want, it shall be given to you because he saved that one do I he could have used in his lifetime. And what will he used that to our for he will say, Almighty Almighty, my oma might forgive
them. And Allah Subhana Allah will forgive this nation. It's minor sins because of the intercession of the Prophet Lisa was set up. This is why we make Dora after the event. And part of that Dora is all our grant Schieffer grant intercession to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because we're going to need it. And he said that about us, not just his companions, but he was talking about us.
He was sitting around his companions one day, and he said to them,
I wish to meet my brothers. And we know me brothers and sisters means
I wish to meet my brothers. And they said, O Messenger of Allah, are we not your brothers? Are we not your brothers? He said, No, you are my Dad, you're my companions. He said, my brothers will come towards the end of time, my brothers and sisters, the ones I want to meet, they will come towards the end of time. And they will believe in me like you believe in me, they will obey me like you obey me, but I will not be there with them. I will not be there with them, they will only have read about me and books. And they will believe in me like you do, they will love me like you do. And the reward of one of them is like the reward of 50. And they said 50, of whom or messenger of Allah 50 of them
combined or 50 of our rewards combined. He said 50 of your rewards combined, because they will not even have my presence will have this intense love for me. So that is my reminder for you today is that we have love for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Remember to
ask for the blessings of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam is one of the other can the pillars of the Salah is to say Aloha, mahalo Mohammed.
Mohammed kemosabe, Daddy brainware Allah Libra him in the Gambia do Majid, you make dua for the Messenger of Allah and his family to is a pillar of Salah. So remember to make dua for our Prophet since that I want to him you know, when we say solo, how to send them when his name is mentioned, all of these things that we can do to revive the Sunnah of the love of the Messenger of Allah and he set out to westerdam like the companions had and the earlier generations, we will be able to
dispel this Islamophobic idea of our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
