What is the true legacy of Muhammad the greatest man to ever walk the face of the earth and the seal of all messengers
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah were early he was happy he in woman when Dean when ilaha illallah wa sallahu wa ala sharika? Why should the Mohammedan, Abu waterflow hana event, I begin In the name of Allah, we praise Him we ask yourself we seek His forgiveness, and may the peace and blessings of Allah, the One True Creator of all that exists be upon his Most Noble Messenger, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a long line of messengers, beginning with Noah, following on to Abraham following on to Moses, and to David and to Jesus, finishing and finally with our beloved Prophet, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and may the peace and blessings be upon
him, his family and his companions, all together, and those who follow them in righteousness up into the Day of Judgment. And I bear witness that nothing has the right to be given, evaluated worship, except the one true creator, sustainer, Lord of all that exists, who we refer to as Allah. And I bear witness that he has no partners. And I also bear witness that Mohammed is indeed his slave and messenger.
Now, a few years ago, I gave a lecture.
This was not long after the Danish cartoons, which I'm sure all of you are quite aware of, came out disparaging, and and completely slandering the character of our beloved messenger Mohammed's on the law, I knew he was sending them. And in this lecture, my intent was to counteract or disprove some of these false accusations and slanders that were being spread about our beloved messenger, Mohammed some Hello Honey, he was send them
and in my attempt to do so, I, you know, related the slander or the lie or the misgiving about Mohammed de la sentiment and then attempted to disprove it, and I thought I had done a fairly good job. After the lecture, a woman came to me and she said to me first, you know, you spent a lot of time telling us, whom Mohammed's Allahu alayhi wa sallam was not, but you did not spend very much time telling us who he was. And so Pamela, I realized the gravity in the depth of my mistake. So she asked me, who is Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam who is Mohammed? And you have to understand the psychology in the context of the question. She did not want to know who he was as reference to his
name isn't entitlements such as he is also law, the Messenger of a law he is determined to be in the seal of all profits. He is Rafa Mottola, and I mean, he is a mercy into all the world he is a dianella law, he was at a gym with Neeraj, a call to Alabama last permission, giving a beautiful light.
She didn't want these entitlements. She wanted to know the context of the man. She wanted to know who was the man Mohammed Saleh, and he was setting them? And how can that have any meaningful purpose to me? So I was at a conundrum, let's, let's say at the least, because this is something that was perplexing to me in the sense that I couldn't give her you know, another hour or two hour lectures, she wanted something short, sweet, simple into the point in this was in an informal manner. So I'm thinking to myself, how can I define such a great man, a man who has so much meaning to me, and so much meaning to Muslims all over the world? How can I define this great man in such a
short amount of time, and, and and at the same time, give it justice?
So I gave her some things, and she thanked me and walked away. But later on, I started to think to myself,
who is Mohammed Saleh? And he was sent them to me? How can I define such a great man in a way that will give me some benefit, but also that is, as simple and short and sweet to the point to be able to relate to other people or to use that definition? To help me be a better Muslim, or a better Daddy, in some way, form or fashion or anything that I'm trying to be better at? How can I use that definition of Mohammed civil law it was setting them to, in turn, make me a better whatever it is. So on the long flight back home, I began to think about this. Who is Muhammad? sallallahu wasallam? Who is he? Who is he to me? Not the entitlement but who is the man? Who is the messenger? Who is the
the the Prophet that we are supposed to love more than we love our own selves? Who is this man to me? Someone Oh, honey,
Send them. And I thought about it for quite some time.
And you know, this is one of the greatest nightmares that and blessings and favors I think I had been given
ever since I had been given the blessings of guidance to Islam 30 years ago was that when I was able to define for myself in some short statements, and short epithets of who is Mohammed Saleh, and he was sending him, not only that, I find who he was to me, and define this great man and messenger to the world. But in that attempt, what I really ended up finding and defining was myself. So Panama, I ended up finding who I was, I ended up defining my own life, I ended up defining my own character, to the best extent of it, and this is what I would like to give to you today, inshallah, to Anna,
what I'm going to try to paint for you in the next few moments is a beautiful picture. And I want to get your mind working with this analogy, that I'm going to give you a connected puzzle. And if any of you have ever done connected up so you've ever watched your children do connect the dots, you know that connect the dots is a picture that has numbered dots on it. And if you start with number one, and follow the dots in numerical order until the end, what you will come up with in the end is a picture representing those dots and lines. Now, if you incorrectly connect those dots, what will you have, you will have a distorted picture that is not truly representative of the intended
meaning. Or if you don't connect the dots whatsoever, you will never really clearly see the picture. And when it comes to this, Deen of Allah Islam, we as Muslims as an Ummah, have
taken this Deen, which if we give the analogy of connect that puzzle, and have on many instances in many occasions, with many things, connect the dots improperly out of order. And we have painted a distorted picture of Islam in our lives and to the world. Or we have just failed to connect the dots whatsoever. Therefore, we really don't know what his name is ourselves, nor are we able to convey that message to the world.
And what I want to do today is to paint this beautiful picture for you with a connected algae analogy of Mohammed cymbala. And he will send them the greatest human being to ever walk the face of this earth from the beginning of time to the end of time. And I'm only going to give you a few dots. But I believe these few dots will, in turn gives you a better definition of who is Mohammed some of them know how to send them forget about what the news media says forget about what magazine say, forget about what any media source may tell you about Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam any pastor or preacher or whatever it has, we are going to use the very clear information we have from the life of
Muhammad Sallallahu send them to give you our viewers at home, the real identity of this man and for all of our Muslim brothers and sisters out there, so that you can in turn define yourself and for all of our non Muslim audience members and guests, you can see the greatness of a man who simply was Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And now we're going to begin at the beginning we'll begin at the beginning with DOT number one. That number one takes place, when Mohammed peace be upon him is at the age of 14. He is already known amongst his people, the Meccans as a very trustworthy and honest person, they have given him the nickname amine which means the trustworthy one or the truthful one. He is known as someone who is very kind and righteous and defends the need of the poor and he takes care of the orphans and he is very in tune with being a gracious person altogether a well rounded individual,
but at the age of 40, and this story is narrated to us by the prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam himself. At the age of 40. He was meditating in a cave right outside the city boundaries of Mecca, and a mountain that is known as the mount the Cave of Hira in the mountain which is now known as jevelin nur, which means the mountain of light. He said, I was in this mountain, and meditating in a cave by myself. And all of a sudden a figure appeared to me with a bright light. And this figure said to me, ippodo, read, recite, and the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said I was startled, and I responded to the figure in front of me. I do not know how I don't know how to read. I don't know
what you want me to recite. And then the command came again. ippodo and the angel squeezed him and let him go.
And the Prophet again replied, I don't know how. And then the third time the angel said it Bora and responded to him by saying it Bora Mirabella de Holla Holla Holla. in Zion I mean Allah, read in the name of your Lord who created who created man from a drop of congealed blood. Read in your Lord is most bounteous. He taught man that we do not know by the use of the pin, very beautiful few statements to the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, of what he is supposed to be reciting or reading. And these were the first revelations of what what would what become to be known as the Koran, the Book of Allah subhanahu wa tada the creator of all that exists. And the Prophet alayhi
salaatu wa sallam said that the person or the figure introduced himself to me, he said, I am jabril or Gabriel, the messenger from your Creator, to all the messengers of the Creator.
Then he said, he introduced me to my Lord, he introduced Mohammed Silva, how do you send him to his Lord? He said, your Lord is a law who is created you and who has commanded you to worship Him alone, with tough heed with oneness. And then the the angel Gabriel or jabril, Allah, he said, and peace be upon him, said, I also am going to introduce you to yourself, that you owe Muhammad peace be upon you have been chosen by Allah, the creator of all that exists to be his last and final messenger to humanity. So jabril introduced him,
self to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he introduced him to his Lord, and introduced him to himself, defining him.
He said, then, the same way the angel came, the angel left me and the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam was left by himself. He was left alone. And he became very perplexed, he became very confounded and dumbfounded as to what am I supposed to do with what just happened? How do I define what just happened to me? Was it real? Was it imaginary? Was it a dream? Because you have to understand your brothers and sisters and our gifts, the weight that had just been given to them Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the weight of the final revelation of Allah to humanity. And Allah says in the Quran,
Quran Allah diabelli Lara eita Hashimoto Sadie, I'm in Hosea de la. What didn't get another Evo Khalid nesina Allah whom yet the factor rune that had this revelation, this Quran been revealed to a mountain, you would have seen that mountain humble itself out of the fear of Allah, even the mountains would have not have wanted to bear the weight of this burden of this beautiful revelation, the final revelation to humanity. And this was just placed upon the shoulders of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he felt the weight, he felt the burden. So he decided to leave and run home to his beloved wife. Khadija are the Allahu Allah May Allah be pleased with her, and on the way home, just
to reinforce what had happened. He said that jabril appeared across the sky, standing on the horizon and said to me, oh, Mohammed, you are indeed the Messenger of Allah. And I am Gabriel. So Pamela to remind them this wasn't a dream. This wasn't a vision. You saw this, it is real.
When Mohammed Saleh and he was setting the media at home to his wife, Khadija, or the Allahu anhu. He told her what had happened.
And she responded by saying to him, You are a man, who Allah would never disgrace with madness. You take care of the poor, you look after the orphans, you are al amin, the truthful one, you care about the rights of humanity, you are pious, you are right, Allah would never disgrace a person like you
Subhan Allah. So then, these are the law and he believed in him and in his message. And she went to her cousin,
what have they been known for? Who was a man who had studied the former scriptures, the Torah, and the Injeel, or the gospel of Isa or Jesus peace be upon him.
In the original languages in the in the languages that were existent at that time,
she went to her cousin, and told him what had happened to her husband.
And one of the said to her, indeed, your husband has been visited by the same angel that visited Moses, the same angel that visited Jesus. He is indeed the messenger of a lot to his people. And he has been chosen by Allah to be the messenger to humanity. The last and final messenger that we see prophesized in the Torah that we see prophesized in the Gospel and he believes
Then his message, and then whatever. So the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam sometime later, and he told him something very auspicious. Some some dubious
and auspicious news.
And it wasn't the greatest news. He told the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. And at this time, whatever, had become an old man, he had lost his sight. He was blind. He told the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam,
I wish that I was a young man, I wish that I was a young man, so that I could be beside you, to support you when your people throw you out.
And the Prophet peace be upon him could not grasp this idea this moment. You have to understand their brothers and sisters and our guests that the also via or the tribalism,
that existed amongst the pre Islamic Arabs
was so severe that tribesmen or Kindred or family members would defend one another, even in the attempt of a sin, that it was so important that I defend the members of my family if they are wrong. So the Prophet peace be upon him is saying to what will they throw me out. And what I told him, I have no doubt about this. No one came with what you came with, except that their own people were the first to throw them out. So he was given the Prophet Allah he set out to a set on some news of what to be prepared for in the coming future. When he began his preaching to his people, this is, number one, this is how it all began. In the beginning where Allah is telling the Prophet if rrbc Arabic
Allah The holla, read in the name of your Lord, who created created man from a drop of blood. This is where it all started, dear brothers and sisters.
the second cut happens just a little bit later.
After this initial revelation, the prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said that no more revelations came. It was just this one initial revelation. And then there was a period of time where the Prophet peace be upon him did not see Gabriel again, he did not hear from Gabriel, he did not hear any more of the message of the Quran. And so such a length of time past, where he became very worried that maybe it really was a dream, maybe it maybe it really didn't happen. What am I supposed to do? He became very perplexed.
And then one day, he went out, and he was so worried that he decided to go and clear his head, and he went out to walk in the desert. And he said, as I was walking in the desert, jabril or gave you peace, be upon him, appeared in the sky again, and frightens me and said, I am jabril and you are indeed the Messenger of Allah have no doubt about that. It was not a vision. It was not a dream, you have not lost your mind. I am indeed Gabriel. And you are indeed the Messenger of Allah.
The Prophet peace be upon him, said that he ran home to his wife Khadija, the Allahu Allah, and he told her vami nguni Cover me up, wrap me up, I think I'm going crazy. I don't know what I'm supposed to do next. And so Khadija the law and have wrapped her husband in a blanket.
And in this condition of being wrapped up, Allah, the creator of all that exists the Sustainer and cherish and Lord of all creation, revealed the next verse or verses or surah, or chapter two, the prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. Allah told him Yeah, you hadn't moved that fear. All you was wrapped up in the mental home, in the waterbuck of a Kabir.
A get up and mourn your people. Get up and mourn the people and magnify and glorify your Lord and purify your garments and stay away from the idols Subhan Allah, now comes the command to act. The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam had been contemplating what to do with this message. And now the call to action comes home, get up for me and warn the people and magnify your Lord and purify your garments and stay away from the idols. So now the imperative call to action comes. So the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam got up, he knew there was no more time for rest. There was no more time for contemplating there was no more time for wondering what to do. He needed to go warn his people about
his creator, he need to go warn people about their Creator, and that their Creator is one. One True God of all that exists, their Creator is going to cause them to die and resurrect them and judge them And grant them eternal paradise or grant them eternal detriment depending on what they have done in this life.
So the profit at least that was sent in from this moment
until the moment
his last breath on this earth. This is what he did. for India, he got up in one the people about Allah, he got up in one of the people that your Lord is one, worship Him alone. Do right, respect your parents respect the orphans take care of the poor, get the rights of everyone, every human being has the rights under the Creator. This became the identity of Mohammed salomaa, hollywood suddenly was confirmed. And if you think this is not true, I dare any of you I challenge any of you go and find for me once authentic statement from the Prophet Mohammed sobre la and he was sending him which he was teaching the message of a law, that that statement was not in an attempt to
discharge the duty of care. This became his life worry, this is what kept him sleepless at night. This is what made him so grateful and serious to Allah was he knew that he had a duty to convey the message of one God to the world, to convey the message of worship of one God to the world. This became his life worry, this became his identity. This is the identity of Mohammed salomo Hollywood send them my dear brothers and sisters and respected gifts.
Now, if I wanted to just finish with this, and say that's it, then I would have done my job. Because this is the identity of Mohammed some law when he was setting him
was that he was a man that was concerned about discharging the duty of India to the world of arising and warning the world to worship the one true God of all that exists, and that there is going to come a day when you are going to stand in front of him and give account for your actions. But I intend to be very thorough. So in sha Allah, when we come back, we will continue discussing the other few points in this beautiful connect with that picture of who is Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, what is the great legacy of this man, whom so many Muslims love and adore more than they love their own selves? So stay tuned, we'll be right back.
So I just want you to know that they were out there, and we're real people.
And we believe is something that is far, far, far greater than anything you've ever seen on TV. anything you've ever read, any book
about Islam is far greater. It's far more beautiful
the mind cannot comprehend.
Cannot cannot begin
testing. A drop off your fingertip in the ocean. doesn't do justice.
As a man like you've never read about, sir.
overreacted? Yes, we overreacted.
But if someone insulted your mother, most of us
for being somebody that nobody wants to be around.
somebody that wants to be around
Assalamualaikum warahmatullah Welcome back to our program on hoys Mohammed cymbala Selim here on one oma TV, we finished up by stating the identity of Mohammed Saleh and send them in reference to him for and they're arising in the morning the people to worship Allah who is one, and to obey Him and live a beautiful life in this life in the next. Now
for the sake of brevity, and if I wanted to be completely thorough, this program would last hours upon hours upon hours upon hours, because the life of the Prophet peace be upon him is replete with so many examples of
the character of the greatest man that ever walked the face of the earth.
I'm only going to relate a few more examples in the law with the permission of the Creator. Now,
the next.in our beautiful analogy is a situation which happened on the worst day, the worst day of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him his life and the greatest man who ever walked the face of the earth.
Narrated by his wife, I Isha around the aloe unhackme. His wife Ayesha, may Allah be pleased with her, the person whom he loved the most in this life, she was asked after his death.
What was the worst day of the Prophet's life? Was it the day that he had camel guts thrown on him while he was worshiping? Was it the day that his wife had died? Was it the day his uncle who was a supporter and his protector died?
She said, No.
The worst day of the Prophet's life is the day of life. The day that he
is a beautiful example of this identity of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.
Not long after the Prophet peace be upon him, had been preaching his message, the forces gathered against him to stop him. They called him a madman, they called him crazy. He said that he is a liar. He is a magician, so many things began to be spewed at him from the same people who used to call him al amin, the same exact people we used to call him al Amin.
And then he was outcast. They threw him and all the Muslims out of the city of Mecca and made them live in the desert
surrounded them so they cannot escape, but just threw them out for three years. And during this time, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam lost his most beloved partner to this time, his wife Khadija, or the lohana died, the only wife he had had for a very long time. And he also his uncle Abu Talib died, and his uncle had supported and protected him he was a well respected man inside the hierarchy of the Mexican society. So the Prophet peace be upon him had no supporter physically or emotionally or mentally, and he knew the wolves were gathering around to feast on him.
So he decided to go to a city on the outside of Mecca known as a city known as tarrif. He went there to give the people the message of Islam and hopes that they would either accept Islam, or at least they would agree to support him and protect him and adopt him into their tribes. So the Prophet peace be upon him went and sat with the nobles of the people of thrive. And he presented them the message of Islam. And he told them either Will you accept the message of Islam and become Muslim? Or will you at least support me and protect me against my people?
Now the people of faith did not accept the message of Islam. Not only did they not accept the message of Islam, but they laughed at the Beloved Prophet Mohammed Savalas, and laughed in his face, ridiculed, mocked and made fun of him.
One of them said, if you are indeed a prophet, you're too good to be sitting amongst us, we're not that good. And if you are a liar, then we are too good to be sitting with you. So they decided to reject Him. And his only wish was that they not spread the word that they had rejected him that they had rejected Islam and they had laughed and mocked at him. But they didn't listen. They not only conveyed this message to the entire city, they told the thugs have the city to stone him out of the city, run him out, literally run him out of the city. So he was chased out of the city being pelted with stones, stones and rocks being thrown at him, by many, many people until it was bashing his
head, bashing his face. His side's blood began gushing and rushing until when he left the city. Blood was pulling up in his shoes.
outside of the city, he decided to sit down in a garden which was a garden that was owned by a and an orchard right outside of the city.
To decided to collect himself and figure out what does he do next, because this is the worst day of his life. This is the worst day of the greatest man that ever lived on the face of the earth life. So he decided that since he had lost his wife, he had lost his uncle, he lost all his support, he decided to go and ask for support from the one person who could truly help him. He raised his hands in front of him, and he made a prayer. He made a supplication to his creator and said, Oh my Creator, would you leave me in this in this ignoble and detriment is state to give me over to the hands of my enemies. And if you just go and read the entire prayer of the Prophet peace be upon him
it tell you how beautiful it is. In parts of this prayer, he calls upon Allah and says, Your Allah, if you are pleased with me, then the countenance of your face, the brightness of your glory is enough to delight in the darkest of nights. And he called upon the one who could truly help him. And when he made this call, a loss of Hannah who
What are the Lord of all that exists the lord of Lord, the King of Kings heard this prayer above his throne above the heavens, and it was so much of a calling to him that it put a lot into action immediately. And Allah subhanho wa Taala was moved to respond to this prayer of the Prophet peace be upon him. So he called Angel Gabriel aluk on Angel Gabriel peace be upon him, and he called the angel that is in charge of all the mountains of the earth. And he sent them in said go to Mohammed some of the law and he was sending them.
And while the This was taking place, while the angels were on their way to meet Mohammed sobre la and he will sell them something else very beautiful took place. The people who owned this orchard they saw the Prophet peace be upon him, they saw this man was in a terrible condition. They started it was beaten, and he was bloody. So they decided to send their servant, they decided to send their servant with a plate of fruit and drink and said, Go and give it to this man, he he's really in need of it. So the servant, who was a man was from who was from the city of Nineveh, the city of Nineveh is the home of Jonah or Yunus peace be upon him, when the slave came to the Prophet alayhi salatu
salam, or the servant, and he gave him the food or drink, the prophet peace be upon took it. And he said, Bismillah before he ate, and this was not known amongst the people to say in the name of God before they ate. So the slave said, Where did you get this from? Where did you get this example from? He said, I am on the guidance of my Creator who has sent me as a messenger to humanity. And he asked the man which is the the the normal procedure, when you meet someone new, he asked him, Where are you from? The man said, I am from Nineveh. I'm from the city of Nineveh, then the Prophet alayhi wa sallam said, then you are from the home of my brother Eunice, my brother in in Prophethood Yunus
you are from the whole, I have been sent from the same God of Jonah with the same message of Jonah, which is to worship the one true God of all that exists and to obey Him and serve Him and do not miss obey Him in this life and you will have peace in this life, and in the next life. So heinola this very simple message of Islam, La ilaha illa Allah, worship one God alone, serve Him, obey Him, avoid disobeying him, and you will have peace in this life and in the next life. When the servant heard this, when the servant heard this message, he fell down in front of the Prophet Alayhi salat wa sallam, and said to him, I shall do and ilaha illallah wa a shadow and nakasu the law, I bear
witness that you are first he said, I bear witness that nothing has the right to be worshipped, the one true God Allah. And I bear witness that Mohammed is indeed the slave and messenger of Allah, I bear witness that you or Mohammed are indeed the Messenger of Allah
Subhana Allah, you know, it just happened. Brothers and sisters and guests.
Allah, the creator of all that exists is reminding Mohammed something he was sending him of his duty of kung fu endear this man at your feet right now. This man accepting the message of tough heat of oneness of God. He is the reason that you are here. He is the reason I have sent you to bring these people to my worship to bring these people to accepting that I am one and I should be worshipped alone. The Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam is reminded that this is why he were here calling for and this is your reason and your purpose for being. So Panama, very beautiful, beautiful reminder for the Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam.
Now, at this time, the angel Gabriel shows up with the angel who is in charge of all of the mountains. And the angel Gabriel says to the Prophet Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullah Peace be upon you, O Messenger of Allah. Ne introduced, this is the angel of the mountains. He said, Allah has heard your da, Allah has heard your supplication to him. And it has moved him so much. He sees what these people have done to you that he has sent the angel of the mountains with me.
And the angel of the mountains,
says to Muhammad Sallallahu, sending them just give me the word, just give me the okay. O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I will take action between the two mountains that surround the city, and I will cause them to come together and crush all of these people for what they have done to you.
The creator of all that exists had made it permissible for Mohammed peace be upon him to get rid of all of his enemies in the city. He said it was okay. Tell the angel destroy those people. So for those of you who may think that Mohammed Mohammed he was selling them was a man who spread a religion by the sword by the threat of force by death
then this story should put you back in your place. This story should put everything directly back into perspective. Because if it had been any one of us who had been treated like this, and then the angel is telling us, you can do what you wish with them. It would have been over for those people in the city, we will be ready to fight with someone if they cut us off in traffic. If they take our parking space in the parking lot. If they look at us wrong in the subway, we're ready to act with aggression.
But Mohammed sama lost sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He understood his identity. He understood who he was. He understood his purpose What's going on there? He was Rama to della el amin a mercy unto the world. So what did he say to that angel? He said, No, no, I don't wish to destroy them. Because even if one of them, even if one of them or one of their progeny of their grandfather or their grandchildren or great grandchildren, great, great, great, great grandchildren. If one person from the lineage of all of these people says La ilaha illAllah. I bear witness there is only one God worthy of worship. If only one people from amongst these people says that, then leaving them will be worth and he decided not to take revenge on those
This is who Mohammed Salah Mohanty was sending him was he was a mercy to the world. He was someone who cared about humanity. He cared about their position in this life. He cared about their position in the next life. So destroying these people would have been detrimental to his purpose. He had a vision. And that vision was for India to warn the people about Allah subhanho wa Taala.
This is the man Mohammed someone Oh honey, who was sending him. This is the truth about the man, Mohammed de la Heidi was sending him.
let's fast forward a little bit. Let's go forward a little bit in time. To the end of the life of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, particularly we have two more deaths, particularly to the last year of his life, and more particularly nine months before the death of the greatest human being that ever walked the face of this earth
nine months before his death
after the Treaty of who they had been signed, which was a treaty with the Meccans so that there would be no more war of bloodshed amongst them, and that the Muslims could make Hajj or pilgrimage to the sacred house in Makkah, as was the ritual of Ibrahim Abraham peace be upon him.
The Prophet peace be upon him students in his mask on his minbar. And he said to the people, prepare yourself, because we are going to the Hajj, we're going to make pilgrimage to the Sacred House of Allah in Mecca.
And he gathered with him between 120 to 140,000 of his companions, and they marched from the city of Medina, going to the sacred house built by Abraham, peace be upon him, founded by Adam, peace be upon him.
And as they are going,
this story that I'm going to relate to you this diet is the most authentic narration that we have from the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. The most authentic narration in the most Muto material fashions meaning related by the most people with the most chains of narrations that it is impossible that this did not happen.
The particular story I'm going to tell you is narrated by Amara, Amara urban Anahata bra and a very dear friend of the Prophet peace be upon him.
He said after the day of artifacts, and the day of arafah, which he Hajj the pilgrimage is all about alpha. The day of alpha, which is the ninth of the ledger, the Islamic month
is known as yongan. Hajj is known as the day of Hajj, because this is the day that we're heading for the umbra that we make the the marching on to Bali for going to ever all of the rites of Hajj are leading up to out of
and on the plane of alpha. And I want to set the scene for you for this story. on the plane of America. What happens on that day.
On that day, millions and millions of people and at this time 140,000 people stood on the plane of America from the time of sunset, I mean to the time from the time of sunrise under the time of sunset, doing one thing and that is raising their hands and making prayer
To the Creator, that entire day is asking for your Creator to forgive you, to release you from the iniquities and sins that you've committed in this life, to forgive you and have mercy upon you.
And the Prophet peace be upon him narrated about this day,
that on this day, the creator of all that exists, descends into the lower heavens in a matter that befits His Majesty, unlike his creation,
and he asked all of the angels in that heaven.
Who are these people? Who are these people who have come here? from all over the world? Dirty? dusty, wearing towels, they're half naked,
tired, what are they doing here? Why are they here?
And of course, Allah already has the foreknowledge The benefit is for our relation. The angels will tell Allah, you're allowed, they're here to ask you. They're standing there asking you.
And Allah will ask the angels, what are they asking me? What? What could these people possibly want from me to go through all of this hardship, to come to this place on this day, and to ask me what they want?
And the angels will say, Oh Allah, they are asking for your forgiveness.
They are asking for your mercy.
And Allah will say, I want all of you to bear witness that on this day, I have forgiven all of them, all the sins they have committed.
And then an angel will tell Allah. Oh, Allah, yes. But there is one amongst them. He is very wicked. He is a form of sip. He is an evildoer on the earth. He just made it to this place by chance. It just so happened that he ended up at this place.
And Allah will say to those angels, I want you to bear witness that I have forgiven him to.
This is the day of Hajj where Allah forgives the sins of those who make that journey to him.
Who make that journey to this place to ask Allah for forgiveness, that is the day of love. And after this day had finished, Amara, Raja Allah and said, the prophet peace be upon him, gathered us all together in front of him.
And he himself
said to all of those people in front of him 140,000 people gathered in front of him. He said to them, what is known as the farewell sermon, the most famous story are the most famous narration the most authentic narration for the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
He began it by saying, oh, people, pay very 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. He knew and had a feeling that his life was coming to an end, and that he would not be here for another year to make this blessing pilgrimage. So he wanted everyone to pay close attention, because and this, this might be the only time I have to tell all of you one thing like this.
And the farewell sermon is so beautiful. And I say I humbly implore all of you to go look at it, go to Google, or Bing or whatever search engine you want. And type farewell sermon of Mohammed, peace be upon him, and you will get the sermon. It lays out the beauty of Islam. The entirety of our Deen is composed in these few paragraphs, how beautiful our religion is. But the point was, after every few sentences, he would look at those people gathered in front of him. And he would ask them a question. He will say, you will be questioned about me one day, you will be questioned about me one day, what are you going to see?
And they all responded 140,000 in unison, we will bear witness that you conveyed the message of a lot to us confer and there and that you gave us the most sincere advices and then he would say a few more sentences and ask the same question and get the same response until he came to the end of the farewell sermon.
What was the last sentence of the first sermon
the very last sentence of the farewell sermon went like this. He looked at all of those gathered in front of him knowing that this may be the last time he would ever seen them gathered like this, knowing that his life was coming to an end. His Messenger ship was coming to an end. He was the last messenger on earth until the day of judgment.
He told all of those in front of him.
Those who are gathered with me here today,
convey this message to those that are not here. convey this message to those that are not here. For truly it may be that the one who has conveyed the message to
May I understand that better than the one who is conveying it?
Dear brothers and sisters, I don't think we surely put this down in its proper place. I don't think we understand the importance of this day, I don't think we understand the weight the burden of this day.
I really think you need to think about this, think about this statement. Those who are here today pass this message on to those that are not here. For truly it may be that the one who has conveyed the message to understand it better than the ones who are doing the conveying.
I'm going to give you a moment to think about that. And at the end, we're going to finish up the last and final point.
When we come back on this beautiful show, about the most beautiful man to ever walk the face of the earth, the legacy of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam peace be upon him here on one on one TV. Stay tuned, we'll be right back.
Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Welcome back to our beautiful program here on one oma TV, the legacy of Muhammad peace be upon him. I left you with something to think about.
About the statement of the Prophet peace be upon him to all of those gathered in front of him on your monitor for the day of Yeoman, Haji the day of pilgrimage in the last year of his life, convey this message to those that are not here. For truly it may be that the people who hear the message conveyed to them may understand it better than those who are doing the conveying.
What just happened here, brothers and sisters,
the prophet peace be upon him, held a torch for 23 years of his life. And that torch was the torch of prophethood and messenger ship. And that torch had only been handed from profit to profit to profit to profit to profit throughout history, meaning in with Noah, giving it to Abraham giving it to Moses today with the Jesus this torch was only ever interested into the hands of prophets and messengers.
But the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is the last and final messengers to humanity.
So he knew that torch could not be retired, it couldn't be retired because there was still going to be people to come, who would need to hear the message of Islam, who would need to hear the message of one true God to a worship.
So he took that torch and he handed it to this nation, the nation of Mohammed peace be upon him. He took that torch and handed it to the Ummah of Mohammed Saleh and he was settled in. And that was the day dear brothers and sisters that we gained our is our dignity. Our honor was given to us on that day.
Because the law says quantum hydrometer of rejecting us that you are indeed the best people chosen for mankind. Why? Why not only bill Murphy with 10 100 mancora to me no nebulae, because you commend that which is good, you forbid that which is evil and you believe in Allah.
Our dignity was given to us on that day. Why because we are now discharged with doing the same duty that was given to Mohammed sobre la jolla Salim and all the messengers before him are calling for and then it became our job.
It became our job to convey the message of Islam to the world. We became the only nation who would ever follow in the footsteps of their messenger because the law says and sort of buy into that the other nations will mount on middle in Latvia. meclizine Allahu de Noronha, where you mo Salah Zakat, Weatherly cul de Ayala, that every nation was commanded but to worship their Lord, make the religion pure for him, establish the prayer, pay charity and that was the right way. But for us we were given the job. Although Elizabeth Rebecca bill Hekmati, what is it Allah Hassan our deal? humbleth he
conveyed call into the way of your Lord with wisdom and fair preaching and argue with them in a way that is best.
And you know, how much dignity were we given on that day brothers and sisters? We were given so much dignity on that day, this nation, the nation who would follow Mohammed sobre la Julio sending them in the footsteps of following Jesus and following Moses and following Abraham.
We were given so much dignity
that Moses, how many of you know Moses, all of you know Moses, my brothers and sisters, my guests, you all know who Moses is, peace be upon him.
Moses is one of the most favored people.
By Allah, the creator.
Moses was gifted with Calum from Allah speech directly when God spoke to Moses through the burning bush. This was an honor a dignity
chosen for Moses. Moses is in one of the highest ranks in Paradise, leader of one of the greatest nations to ever walk the earth, the largest nations.
But when Moses saw this nation, when Allah allowed him to see the creation of this nation, the Nation of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam may speak May peace and blessings be upon him. Do you know what Moses said? Moses said, Your Allah, make me one of them.
Moses said, Make me one of them. Dear brothers and sisters, your answer is that Moses would have traded places with any one of you Mussa, peace be upon him would have traded places with you on any given day of the week. And you're going to tell me you don't have dignity, you don't have honor. You need to walk around with your head on the ground, a frown on your face. Why? Why, when one of the greatest messengers to ever walk the face of the earth would have taken your place because of how much dignity and honor was given to you, and was given to your Prophet peace be upon him.
Subhan Allah, this is the essence of this ummah. This is why I can walk around every day with all of the news that is being spread about the terror of Islam, that surely is coming to destroy your way of life. The Muslims are going to kill you. fear them, be afraid of them, found them, spit at them. This is why I can walk around every day with that condition around me with my head up, my shoulders back a smile on my face. Because today, I can say, I am from the of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
I can say I am from the nation, that Moses would have traded places with me on any day of the week. That is my dignity. Do you have it?
Do you have it?
This is what was given to us on this day, our dignity, our honor.
And it's even more, it's even more beautiful than all of that.
Upon this statement of conveying the message of Islam to the world, the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, he raised his finger to the heavens, and he said, Aloha, Masha, Allah bear witness, oh, Allah bear witness, oh, Allah bear witness, I have indeed conveyed your message to them. I've conveyed your message, I did my job. I relieve myself of conflict. And then I passed on the torch to the greatest nation that will ever exist in the face of the earth.
The nation that will bring glory to the world, the nation that would bring the world out of Dark Ages, who would bring advances in science and medicine and astronomy and physics and mathematics? Where is that Alma today? Dear brothers and sisters? Where is that oma? Where are those people who are coming to Makai rahmatan leanness,
what happened to us? We need to go back to this. We need to remind ourselves of this. So that maybe, maybe in our lifetime, we can see that again. He raised his fingers to the heavens and said, Oh law I have indeed conveyed your message to them. And then what the last thing I'll reveal the verse on this day, Allah decided to take this time, this place this day, after this statement of the Prophet Mohammed salado, hollywood sending them out of all the time and places in history. Allah decided to take this day and say something a lot revealed and Yama came out to LA comme de nukem. wattman to either Mati or of the to local Islam Medina, this day, I have perfected your religion for you. This
day, I have completed my favor upon you. And this day, I have chosen for you, Islam as your way of life. Brothers and sisters, our Deen was completed on this day, Yama acmella to lakum Dino Khun, Allah said this day I perfected your religion for you. How important was the statement of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam for us to continue to convey this message. It was so important that a lot decided to complete his religion with it. Allah decided to complete his entire religion to humanity,
upon the statement of the prophet to us to continue to convey this message, this is why I do what I do. This is why I'm here today, because someone did this job for me 13 years ago, and I have decided in my humble attempt of gratitude to my Creator, to continue to do that for others, until I cannot do it anymore. But that is not just for me. That is not just for the other show. You can do it all over the world. That is for you.
All of you, and for our guests. It is for you to take consideration for yourself and of your life.
Who am I? Why am I here? What does it all mean? Who is Mohammed really
Find out. This is why we hear, forget about what the TV says, forget about what the newspaper and magazine say. It's garbage. This is the real story of the man, Mohammed solomani, who was sent them. This is the real story. And I want to finish with this last dot.
This very last day,
nine months later,
after this day,
the prophet peace be upon him, was very ill.
And he was laying his head
on the chest of the person who he loved the most in this world, his wife, Sharon, the aloe Anna.
she said he looked at the miswak with the toothbrush, signifying that he wanted it she said, Do you want to he said yes. So she softened it with her own saliva and then he brushed his teeth.
And the angel of death presented itself before Mohammed's a lot he was sending them. Now the angel of death when it comes,
it does not.
ask people what they want. When the Angel of Death comes, the Angel of Death comes and takes the soul. There is no remorse, there is no respect. There is no more time given to the individual. But the greatness of the man Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam was such that the angel of death
and had to ask permission
to take the solo Mohammed's on will know how to send them. The angel gave him two choices. And no one is saying this discourse.
The angel is telling the Prophet you either have can continue to live in this life you can overcome this illness, illness, or you can choose the death and to be in the company of your Creator. The Lord knows high.
And the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam after encouraging this on to solo he said as solo as solo, a solo Don't forget to worship the Lord. He said I want the companionship or I want the companionship of the one who was most high.
He said I want to be in the company of my Creator. And he breathed his last breath in this life.
And that was the saddest day
for all of us. It is still the Saturday to me. The day that we lost our beloved Prophet Mohammed Salah Mahoney.
Some of the greatest companions
lost it on that day. They were so distraught that even Omar radi Allahu anhu was the epitome of manhood, which we will discuss in a further program. He was walking around in the masjid of the prophets in Medina with a sword in his hand, saying whoever says Mohammed is dead, I'll kill you myself. Until I will Walker. The prophets best friend came to Oman and consoled him and said if you worship Mohammed, Mohammed is dead. But if you worship Allah know that Allah is Allah Hi, he is the one who lives without death.
But there is a woman on this day
that this story is really about this point. Her name is Iman, Iman. And if you don't know who I am, I'm in his you have to go way back in the Sierra, in the life of the Prophet peace be upon him.
When the Prophet alayhi salatu was salam, he lost his father before he was born, and his mother died when he was six. His mother entrusted him to a woman after her death, her name was Iman. She took care of the Prophet Alayhi. Salatu was Salam as his mother for the rest of his life. And when he referred to her he referred to her as,
as Oh, me, my mother, and he treated her like a mother. He gave her the same dignity and respect that Islam teaches us to give our mothers that Jenna, Paradise is at the foot of our mothers.
This is the real teachings of Islam. paradise lies at the foot of your mother, who was a woman.
When the Prophet it said it was a lamb died, you would expect that a mother would grieve over her child. So I'm in began to cry.
And she cried profusely, but when I would walk out and omata saw her crying, they said to her, oh, my man, why are you crying? Because what has been given to Mohammed and death is better than what Allah has ever given him in life.
She said, I'm not crying because of his death.
I'm not crying because of his death. The sadness that makes me cry, is the fact that Upon the death of my son, Mohammed, the wahi revelation from Allah has come to an end.
The communication between the creator and his creation has stopped. Because a lot communicates to us through His prophets and messengers to humanity and with the death of the
Final messenger, there will be no more communication between a lion his creation. This is the real sadness of this day. And Abu Bakr and Omar understood what she said. And they began to cry with her.
And this is a true sadness, dear brothers and sisters, that the communication between our Creator and us is severed, we will never hear directly from our Creator again, until the day we stand before him on the Day of Resurrection, and give account for actions that is truly sad.
I will walk in and Omar and the rest of the companions of the Prophet peace be upon him, they understood something that we fail to realize they understood something about this point that we fail to grasp. And that is that yes, maybe Allah has stopped speaking to his creation. But that does not mean that the creation has to stop hearing the words of the Creator.
Why did Allah stop speaking to the creation because his speech was complete, Allium, I'ma come out to LA come, Dino come right here, in the most glorious and noble Book from Allah is the speech of the Creator.
Full of guidance and righteousness for humanity.
This is the book we're in there is no doubt in it is a guidance for those who feel the Creator. This is the speech of the Creator.
They understood that the only way the creation would ever hear from the creator again, was that if we do the job that was left to us nine months ago, conveyed this message to those that are not here. If we get out and tell the people about this book, if we get out and tell the people about Mohammed about their Lord, if we do the job that was left to us, then the word of the Creator continues to live on among his creation.
And they did it to perfection. This is why they work on to Cairo mutton oak reject leanness because they did their job.
Their job was to convey the message of tawheed to the world.
And they did it to the best example. What about us? What about us? What are we doing? We're spending our lives worrying about the paycheck at the end of the week, the big home, the nice cars, the fancy clothes. That's our concern. Our concern isn't whether the speech of the Creator is being conveyed to the creation. Whether my neighbor knows about Allah, with my best friend at school knows about a lot, my coworker, the people who come in my store every day.
Because that has not been our concern. We have been put into this condition with the world does not respect us with the world does not give us the dignity and honor and respect that we deserve as a Muslim, because we're not doing our jobs. Allah doesn't respect us anymore. So he's taken away our honor. The honor that was given to us
on the last sermon of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam has been taken from us because we have not been doing the job that brings the dignity.
We need to wake up brothers and sisters. If you say Muhammad Rasul Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah and you believe that
they need you to ask yourself, Am I doing what he left me to do? Am I following in the footsteps of the greatest messenger ever walked the face of the earth? Am I going out and telling my friends and neighbors the truth about Islam? The truth about Muslims the truth about the Quran, the truth about Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam? Am I doing my job? Are you doing your job? Ask yourself that right now. And if you can admit to yourself that you're not doing your job, then what are you going to do about it? There are so many people that need our help.
The world is in chaos. The world is spinning out of control with evil.
We, as Muslims are supposed to be the one who shows the world the right way. But if we're not even living the right way ourselves, and we're not doing the right thing ourselves, and we're not following in the footsteps of the greatest men to ever fault that walk the face of the earth. Why do you think anyone would want to follow you?
Why do you think people would want to follow you
know, if we decide to follow Mohammed Salah lohani we send him
and the pure teachings of this beautiful religion of Islam, we will gain our honor back for the world will gain our dignity back to the world. And dear Muslims and non Muslims. It is your duty to go and look and research for yourself who was Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, I guarantee you you will not find anything different than what you have seen in this program. And if you come to the same conclusions that I have that this is the greatest human being to walk the face of the earth, conveying the greatest message to humanity, which is to worship one God alone and to follow Him and OBEY Him. Then you have found the teachings of Islam
If you want to accept those teachings, find a Muslim in your area, go to your local mosque, or get in touch with me personally, through my website, you should edmunds.com through one oma tv.com through whatever means you need to get in touch with a Muslim.
And tell them you want to enter into the greatest
way of life that has ever existed. And remind us that we need to be doing our job of putting the world back into its place of dignity and honor, through the religion of the one true God alone.
I have been humbled to be with you. And I look forward to many more amazing programs just like this on one oma TV, a station dedicated to telling the truth about Islam and Muslims to telling the truth about Islam, and to telling the truth about Muslims even if it means telling the truth against our own selves of what we're not doing.
And I look forward to seeing all of you next time. Right here on one oma TV aku. Luca was actually welcome first of Pharaoh who in our life for him, I end by saying All praise belongs to Allah The Lord of all exists. And as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh peace v upon all of you
