Alhamdulillah herbal alameen wa salatu salam ala CD mursaleen mowlana Mohammed while early he was hired to he woman to their home their son in law humid Dean and my bad, respected brothers elders, respected scholars. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
Within the Islamic narrative, you often hear the word that below the Allahu anhu. And the Sahaba of the Allah and who sacrificed, they sacrificed, as chef Yoda mentions, is the word sacrifice, the best word that we can use, because concepts and realities are often packaged by the words and we often embrace them due to the packaging.
So is the word sacrifice the best word that we can say for the Sahaba or the Align home, or for beloved or the Allahu anhu. The truth is, the word sacrifice means that you give up something that you desire, with a possibility of return and with the possibility of no return.
And when you sacrifice for the sake of Allah, you are guaranteed a return. And this is why a word which is far greater than this and the word that we should embrace is that what they did is that they invested it. As Allah says in the Quran, Martin de Beauvoir, in the law, he buck, whatever you have will perish, finish. But whatever you send by Allah will return remain for eternity. It will never finish when Allah subhanaw taala speaks to the believers in the Quran and he encourages them to do good actions. What does he say? He says your levina amanu do locum allottee Jonathan to G komen as urban Aleem. So panela he said O believers, satellite indicate to you towards a business,
transaction and investment which will save you from the torment of the punishment. Now, if I said to you, listen, Bruce, listen carefully. I'm going to show you how to make a million pounds, a million pounds. Those of you who are slouching will sit up. What was Allah subhanaw taala using the Quran, he used the word the Jara business transaction investment, and then Allah says what's his business? He says to me, no, no Billa he was foolish. He went to jail he do a feasibility law he became one one for cecum. He says that you believe in Allah and His messenger and you strive in the path of Allah, you do jihad in the path of Allah, but your wealth and your life, the early come hazratullah
come in contempt Allah moon, and then Allah subhanaw taala says, He says that is better for you. If you really understand. And let me tell you about a group of people who really understood they were the Sahaba of the Allah and whom, for them. Gender was real. For them Ulla was real, they felt Jenna, they had reached a stage that this was real to them. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was about to migrate, is this was the final negotiation with the people of unsolved 73 of the answer came to finalize the negotiations. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with his uncle abass, who wasn't a Muslim at the time. And his uncle abass started the negotiations. And he
said that this is my nephew, Mohammed. He is in Makkah with us with the bunny Hashem and we will look after him as long as he is with us. Now tell me, will you the people of Medina look after him in the same manner? And the answer turned to the prophets Allah Allah Allah was alone. And they said, O Messenger of Allah, you tell us what do you desire from us? And the verb is Allah Allah wa sallam said, I expect from you, that you will defend me like you defend your women and children, that you will depend upon me in times of ease and in times of difficulty, that you will obey me you like it or you dislike it. That
You will enjoin good and you will forbid evil. And then in the matters of religion, you will not be concerned about what people say, if the entirety of humanity stands against you, you will stand up for what you believe in.
And the answer said O Messenger of Allah, if we fulfill the conditions, then what will we get in return? And the problem is Allah Allah Allah wa sallam said one word, he said, You will get Jenna and COVID mnemonic roseola. And who was sitting there who narrates this? He says Robbie help Bay. He says, what a bargain. What a bargain. What was the purpose of asking them to do? He was asking them to give their life, give their wealth, listen to him if they like it or dislike it, if the entirety of humanity goes against it, they will remain firm. And in return, what was he promising them something they couldn't feel? Something they couldn't touch? Something they couldn't see. But
because to them, Allah was real.
Jenna was real. They believed it, because they had a connection with Allah. And what did they say Robby Bay, what a bargain. What a bargain. And if you look, this was the life what the Sahaba were like, and maybe you can understand this one example. You know, there was a man who was climbing a mountain. And while he's climbing the mountain, he believed that by the end of the evening, he would reach the top. But Mike fell and he hadn't reached the top. And it's pitch dark, he can't see a thing. But he believes is close to the top. So he carries on climbing, and he's feeling his way. And all of a sudden, what happens? His foot slips, and he's fooling. And he's falling. And then his rope
gets tangled into a branch. And he's dangling in mid air, he can't see a thing. And in this state of desperation, he says, oh, Allah help me. Oh, Allah help me. And he hears a voice. Do you really believe that I can help you? And the man says, yes, oh, Allah, only you can help me nobody besides you can help me. And then the voice says, if you really believe that I am the only one who can help you then cut the rope, cut the rope. If you if you're a man is like it's so strong, and your trust is so strong, then cut the rope. The next morning, the rescue team came, they found a man dangling six feet off the ground, frozen to death, because he did not really trust. And this was the
difference between the Sahaba of the lamb home and us. Whatever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, they believed in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the purpose of lesson was sitting, and the young man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, O Messenger of Allah. I am a youth team. And I have a garden. And what I want to do is make a wall around the garden. But the problem is that there is another Muslim who lives next door to me. His one day tree comes right in the middle. And this Muslim was actually a monastic. And I've asked him to sell me that day tree he won't. So the problem is a lot of them call this monastic. And he said
to them, and he said, sell me that they treat. And I promise you a Drake tree in janma, where the journey underneath his shade will last for 100 years. That's how big it will be. And this monastic refused, because to him, he loved the dunya.
And Abu Dhabi, Allah who was sitting there, and Abu Dhabi, Allah who said, O Messenger of Allah, if I buy that date tree, will you also Promise me a date tree in Jannah. And the purpose of lots of them said, I promise you have a treat and Jenna and a Buddha roseola. And we went to this one office. And he said to them, and he said, Send me that one day tree, and I'm gonna fix it. I didn't sell it to them. Maybe you think I'm gonna sell it to you? He said, You know who I am. He said, I'm a Buddha. He said, Do you know about my gardens? And the monastic said yes. Who doesn't know about your gardens in Medina. your garden is the most beautiful 600
Trees, the most beautiful water, a palace. A Buddha said you give me that one day tree, I swear by Allah, I will give you my entire garden.
And he said, You're having a love and a Buddhadharma the Allahu said Try me, try me. And he gave him that one tree for what? One Tree for his entire garden. And a Buddha came back to the province, a lot of them and he was elated, because he knew if he had a tree in general once he goes into genma, he's not coming back out again. And he came to the US alone. And by then it was revealed to the province of Marcella what had happened. And the rubber is allowed sometimes at Oh Buddha when you went away, I promise you one day tree in Jana, I swear by Allah now I see that your agenda is full of dead trees is full of dead trees. And then a Buddha went back home and his wife was in the
garden. And he said, leave the garden and she said Why? And he told her, he said I have bought a day tree. I bought trees in Ghana with a shade last for the traveling of 100 years for this garden. And you know what she said? She said Robbie Halle Bay. She said, what a bargain. What a bargain. And the allama mentioned that they spend the rest of their life in relative poverty, but with the knowing and with the guarantee that they will attain gender in the hereafter. So hey, by Rumi radi. Allahu the slave the position, he left to migrate towards Medina, and he was a businessman. And the machine again followed him. And so he climbed up a mountain. And so he brought the alarm who said to them,
he said, You know, I am the best Archer from my monk shoe. And if you try to come up, I will pick you all off. And when my arrows finish, I will take my sword and I will strike you down until there is nothing left of my sword. But then you have another option. You know, I am a businessman. I will tell you where I will hit on hidden all my property, and you can take that. And the mystery key knew that this was a Muslim, he wouldn't lie.
And he said, then they said Where is your? Where is your wealth? And so one of the olana told them, and they went, and they came to the gathering of the province of La salamander province, Allah was already in Medina, and he entered the room, and the brothers Amala they were some of them was sitting with the Sahaba, the Alon whom, and as soon as sohaib into the room, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said Robbie Halle Bay. He said what a bargain Oh, so hey, what's a bargain? And then Allah revealed from from the seven heavens woman a nasty me yesterday, NASA. He said there are people who will sell them themselves, to attain if does amaravati love to attain the pleasure of
Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And if you look at the life of Bilal from the Allahu from the day he embraced Islam, his life was an investment what was beloved before Islam, Villa was a slave. He was nothing. He was like Allah subhanaw taala speaks about man in the Quran. And he says, Hello, I live in sunny he domina Dalai Lama can shake and mascara. He says, Wasn't there a time upon man, that he did not exist. There was no Vicar of him, there was no mention upon him. This was what the law of the land was like, before Islam he existed but in reality, he did not exist. The truth is that a non existence was more honorable than the existence of the slave amongst the Arabs. The historians mentioned that sometime
what they would do with the slaves is that they would tie him to a pole. And then they would bet with each other, who can shoot the slave in his left eye. And they will shoot the arrow, the first would hit the leg, the second may hit the chest, the whole thing may hit the neck, and then eventually they would hit the eye and the slave would be dying, bleeding is lost, and the party who had one would be celebrating. This will work below the line who and the rest of the slaves as a slave you live. You live were born a slave. You live the slave and you died a slave. You had no aspirations.
But then below the line who left the servitude of man the slavery of man and became the slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then the example of a law of the land who is like the example of use of La salatu salam, how Allah subhanho wa Taala to use of La salatu salam from the depths of the well and placed him on the throne of Egypt. Allah subhanho wa Taala took bill out of the Allahu brutalized, slave downtrodden. And one day after fudger Salah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam turned around and he said, Oh, Bilal, tell me what action do you do? Because last night I entered Jana was submit to hush hush and email me and I heard your footsteps in front of me in Jana.
Oh, Bella. I heard your footsteps in front of me are Bilaal. This is how Allah smart Allah elevated him after he embraced Islam, below the Allah and who belong to the tribe of bunny jam. His mother was taken as a slave and he was sold to a man called omega been health. Now on may have been health was one of the most ardent enemies of Islam. You know you have in Islam, those who have been guaranteed Jenna by the prophets Allah Salaam, you also have those who are guaranteed jahannam one of those who are guaranteed Johanna Mundo Quran was omiya been held. Last month, Allah tells the province of Muslim do not follow this man. Do not follow this man because he is a man that we have
made his heart heedless. We have placed the seal upon his heart. And this was his master, and below the Allah and who would often see how omiya he would when he would hear the name of the professor lots of he would froth from the mouth.
He would frost from the mouth, he would become angry. But below the line also notice that they never had anything evil to say about the profits or loss. It was always you know, no disparaging remarks. So below the line who went and he went, and he sat by the province of Lhasa, he wanted to hear about this message. And he heard this message, and it was a revolutionising message. It was a message that even gave sleep hope. And this is why the vast majority of those who embraced Islam in the early part were who they were those who were the slaves. They were who were regarded as the low people. Now, I asked you today that Islam that we practice, does it give the downtrodden people hope? The
vast majority of people don't see any faith from Islam. They don't see Islam, going out of the four walls of the masajid.
You look at our old countries, you look in Pakistan, the poor people, what do they become? They become Christians, and we call them today. They become
they become Shia. But how many of them actually become Sunni? Because we don't have this outreach. They don't see any hope in Islam was the message that the province of Muslim bought it gave people hope. You look at the continent or below the Allah and who? Africa. You hear about entire villages, becoming Christian, entire villages, becoming a media. Malawi, the Christians did a survey in 1900. Malawi in Malawi, the Christians were less than 1% in 1900. In 2000, the Christians did another survey in the period of 100 years. And before that the vast majority of people in Malawi were Muslims. In a period of 100 years. The survey showed that Malawi had become 62% Christian, we were
the Muslims. They didn't the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say
that poverty is close to refer, because when you're poor, you're vulnerable. Where are the outreach projects that the Muslims have? They no longer exist? You look in our own look in England. Do we have any outreach projects? Do any downtrodden homeless people turn towards us? Who caters for the homeless people in England. in Birmingham is there one machine in England which caters for them, but you can go into the town
Center, and you will see the churches, they cater for homeless people, Muslims and non Muslims. We get very happy when we see, you know, a new Muslim coming to the masjid. But what about all those young children who are born Muslims, and then there is no Muslims to foster them and adopt them, born Muslims, with the hope for them with the hope because this was the dean at the province of Lausanne and bought it gave the downtrodden people hope. And they go into homes, and they lose the man because the Muslims don't have any outreach projects. And the dean at the province of Malala was on board. It gave men like below the line of hope. You know, when I founded the Viva Palestina shop,
I searched and I thought, where else? Is there any other shop like this in the country, and I checked on the internet. And there's a shop which was similar to this, where all the proceeds went to the Palestinian cause in Edinburgh.
So I caught a flight up to Edinburgh, they gave me their dress, and I went to the shop, you know where this shop is situated. This shop is situated in a church that all the proceeds, all the proceeds that they make, go to the Palestinians situated in his church.
So the dean at the province of Muslim bought it gave it gave them hope. It gave the Muslims hope. And this is why the vast majority of people who came towards Islam were those who will the downtrodden. And the greatest objection that the mushrikeen had what was it? The greatest objection that the leaders of Christ had they said we can't sit with the likes of Bilaal. How can below be equal to us? A Buddha Hall would say how can men like hooba be equal to me, will lead to them a leader will say How could Sahiba Rumi be equal to me? And Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, and he tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said it was Bill nasaka Molina yet una
boom. Bill Doherty. We'll see you real soon.
He says, messenger of Allah remain in the company do suffer with those who remember Allah in the morning and the evening. Why? Because they want the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala they want the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and bill out of the blue he embraced Islam because this Islam gave him hope. And after a little while on media bin Khaled found out about this Lamb of below. And then regions mentioned that he tormented him by Allah. If to date this streets of Makkah could speak they would tell you that this is the same place where you are walking today where Amar and Yasser were persecuted and the prophets Allah Salaam would pass by and he would rub his hand over the head
of Amar and he would say Sabrina Allah yourself in Namo Docomo Jana owes yasir have sober because your abode by Allah
they would tell you that this place is the place where Sameera Viola and ha was martyred. If the Kentucky Fried Chicken then the McDonald's in Makkah could speak. They would tell you that this is the very same place where the Muslims were boycotted for two and a half years. And often they would have to eat needs to survive. It leaves to survive. If your hotels, your daru Tony Joe Pearl, continental your sheratons could speak where you are lucky, luxury beds lie By Allah, they would tell you that these are the very same places where hubub may be made to lay on charcoal until the flesh of his back would melt. If the streets of Mecca could speak, they would tell you that these
are the streets where beloved would be dragged until his skin would peel from his body. And then they would beat him with the sticks and they would pelted with stones and what would beloved say he would say 101 Allah 101 Allah, then they would in the sweltering heat of the Arab Peninsula, for those who have been they would make him lie down. They would put armor upon him so he would boil even more and then they would put a rock upon his chest
And it would feel as though his ribs are being crushed. And then they would say, oh Bilaal, denounce your religion. And he would say 100 100, they would say below believe in Latin oza. And below the line would say, my tongue can't say those words. My tongue can't say those words. And Mr. halaby says, you know, beloved, he would dilute the torment and the pain through the sweetness of tawheed of God says, How did belong, managed to physically take this torment? He says, because his heart, and his mind was content, his heart and his mind was content. And listen, this is not about a narrative. I'm not standing here to giving a narrative. We need to take lessons from the life of
biller of the Allahu we speak about Bilaal. And somebody writes an article about our organization and our Masjid, and all of us get flustered. Please speak about how below the line who was and somebody says something about us, and we get all scared to negative articles in the newspaper. And we want to take off our jobs, we want to cut off our bids, we get a new job. And the bids gone because you can no longer fit in. It's easy to fit in a spark broken spark Hill. But then we compare ourselves with below the hill and you're in that town center. And it's Salah time, and you are shy to pray for us. You are shy to place your forehead on the earth of our last panel data, but people
are not shy to smooth openly to transgress the laws of Allah. And then we say we are from the progeny of Bella. Bella was unique. What made Bella unique, by alone made Bella unique was that he remains steadfast in the most difficult time below the alarm could have easily said that Listen, I will embrace Islam when the Muslims are strong. I will embrace our practice my Islam and small e mostly because there is no non Muslims there. But soon as I go into the wider environment, it's a bit difficult. You know, I don't really feel a part of the community. What about a bit of bleach? And might help? What about Mohammed becoming Mo, that might help as well. But this is this was
unique regarding Bilodeau the olana, he could have easily said that I will hold I will hide my deal. And when the Muslim become dominant, then I will embrace Islam, then I will openly proclaim My Islam, no below the line to remain firm, and above the line above the line who says that the Muslims would be persecuted to the degree that they could no longer stand that they could no longer sit down they would break them. And every single Sahabi who was persecuted would at one time or the other give in and this was permissible. Mr. Serra de la Lu came to the Messenger of Allah. And he said O Messenger of Allah, they persecuted me to a degree that I couldn't bear anymore. And I said words of
prefer. And the province of La Sallam said How was your heart? And Amar, the Allah Allah who said My heart was content with Eman And the purpose of Muslim said if it happens again, as long as your heart is content with a man say those words again, and Abdullah near boss or the Allah and who says that every single Sahabi they tortured them to the degree that they broke them besides below the roseola besides Bilaal, they would beat him and then they will say to him, his lot and oosa your load? And finally they would say yes, as occasions, a spider would be walking past and they would say is that spider your Lord? And they would say yes. He says the only man that they couldn't break
was below. The only man Why? Because beloved broke thin. Every time they would say believe in Latin oosa. Below was a my tongue cannot say that. And he will say 100
and all this persecution, and the province Alaska would see this persecution. And one day he went and he said to the Sahaba on the land, he said Isn't there anybody out there who can by Bilaal and free him, look at the torment that he goes through? And Abu Bakar of the land who was Abu Bakar and he went to may have been health, and he said to me, you've been health. He said, Send me below. And oh my god, I'll send him to you because you're the one who corrupted him.
In the first place, so Abu Bakar said how many how much you're going to sell him for? And he said, I'll sell him for 10 gold coins. And Abubakar Ilana went home, and he bought back 10 gold coins and he gave him to omega and omega began to laugh. And Abubakar Rolando said Oh, are you laughing for and only you said Abu Bakr I swear by Allah. If you had haggled with me and you had offered me one gold coin for Bilaal, I would have sold him for one gold coin. And Abubakar Ilana turned to me. And he said, Oh me, I swear by Allah. If you had haggled with me, and you had asked me for 100 gold coins for Bilaal, I would have given you 100 gold coins. I would have given you 100 gold coins.
Abubakar bought him, and he freed him. And then what would you say about Bilaal? He would say belongs to you, Donna Pillai is my master, the greatest man after the MBR alayhi salaatu wa Salaam to walk on the face of this earth is a beloved is my master
would say, he said, Abu Bakar say you do not work out the Casa de de la, Abu Bakar is our master and he freed our Master, the freedom master. And then came the Battle of brother and who may have been conferred no intention in participating in this battle, no intention. And one of the one of the other mushrikeen about being worried. He went into media and he threw him a piece of coal. He said go and cook like a woman cooks at home because you're not gonna fight in the battle. And omiya said, may Allah disfigure your face. You know, it's like saying, you know, go home and wear a skirt. And Amelia said, Mila, disfigured your face. Now Amelia was forced to go into the battlefield, and omiya
went into the battlefield. In every single battle, the Muslims had a slogan, every battle. You know what the slogan in this battle was? 100 101 Allah, Allah, Mr. Xu komiya. And after the battle, omega was taken as a prisoner and below the Allahu sorem. And Bilal said, omega rasuluh for the pinnacle of Cooper mana Jota Naja, I will not survive if he survives, either he lives I live, and he moved up, he pushed him out of the way and he struck me and he killed him. And while he was killing him, What did he say? 100 101. Allah when Allah and this is why, when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know the Muslims had a concern, how do they call the people for Salah.
So many decisions were given some said put a flag for every time it's a lot of time put a flag up. So the people see and they come for Salah. Some said use the horn, the prophets Allah Some said that's what the Jews use. Some said, use the bell. And the prophets Allah sometimes said this, Christians use the bell. So the Sahaba of the allana went sleep. But there was one Sahabi especially. And this man went to sleep with a deep concern to Sahabi one was on top and the other was
busy. And once he was asleep, the angels came and they showed him how to give them a van. And in the morning, he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In the morning he went to the province of Milan.
And he informed the province of La Salaam of what he had seen. And the role is Allah Salaam, called who did he call to give the van who did he call? He called biller of the Alon who out of why did he call banal? They often say because he had the loudest voice, but I say that Professor Muslim Cole pillar of the Alliance because he proclaimed tawheed in the most difficult of times, and now he was gonna proclaim to him openly By Allah, every single Sahabi would have given their life to be have the honor of to be known as the more as dean of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam every single Sahaba what greater honor could they be? That you say Allah Akbar, Allah.
And the province of La Sallam says, allow for after? What greater honor could there be that you call the people to salah and the prophets Allah seldom lead the people towards in Salah. What greater honor could they be? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he said the person who gives the Amazon for 12 years Allah forgives all his sins. And another narration the prophets Allah Salaam said a person who gives the van and all those people who pray with him
He gets the reward for all those people. Can you imagine getting the reward of the salon or boubakeur, the salon owner of
the salon Holly been bullied, salam, Abu Zubaydah de la Jara, and all these eminent Sahaba of the Allah at home. And the reason mentioned that below the line who he didn't leave any children behind him, actually he left no wealth behind him, he died in relative poverty. But you know, what the inheritance of beloved was, it was the
from generation to generation, the Muslims have adopted.
And this is the Sunnah of Bulava. vilano, from Australia, to Canada, from China, to Argentina, from Mauritius, to Iceland, a million times a day the event is given a million times a day. The sun now below is revived a million times a day. Can you imagine? A million time 1400 years, the sun no below the land who has been revived over a million times every single day? People revived the some nobility of the land. But the greatest honor for banal must be on the occasion. When belongs on the occasion of Fatah, maka, the conquest of Makkah, can you imagine all the Muslims are there? And all the mushrikeen are there and the province Allah Salaam asked. The Mashallah keen is a What do you
expect from me? And they say they'll messenger they said, Oh, Mohammed, you are carry. Your father was Kareem. your forefathers were all Kareem and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said is Abu antimo Tanaka, lotta three ballet como yo, he said, All of you go, you are all free. And there is no reckoning upon you. And then can you imagine all the Sahaba of the Allah annum who were there in the beta one were there all the Sahaba who are participants in the Battle of butter were there the 10 who were guaranteed gender by the province, Allah Salim were there, the full qualify Russia doing two of them the son in laws of the prophets, Allah sent them, two of them the Father, Lord of the
prophets, Allah send them but who did the prophets of Allah lives of them choose? Who did he choose to ascend the Kaaba. The Kaaba was the most holiest place in the eyes of the Muslims. And in the eyes of the mushrikeen. Who did the province a Muslim choose? He chose below his ability to stand up and ascend the roof of the Kaaba and give the Azhar call on to toe he'd like he used to call indoor heat under the
under the rock used to call the to heat into the state of persecution used to call to heat. Now today's stand up. So everybody can see that Bilal is standing in top of the Kaaba, and he's calling Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
And the mushrikeen was sitting there. And it was three mushrikeen ottavino say it has been a sham, and Abu Sofia, and one of them said, Oh, Tom said I'm glad my dad passed away before seeing this date. A black man ascending the Kaaba and giving.
And Harry said, If I knew that Mohammed was on the truth, I would have followed him. And Abu sufian, who was very intelligent with the leader, Abu Sufyan said, I am not gonna say anything, because you know, this paper here, that people will inform Mohammed what I said, and after this after than Malala had given that as on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to these three, and he told them exactly their discussion. And they said, there was nobody else here to listen to our discussion, and otop and Horace embraced Islam there and then they said, we bear witness that there is no God but Allah and UI is messenger. But what was the province of La Selim doing with Bilaal?
Think about it. He was showing a token of the society that he had came to create, that beloved had left the servitude of man and reach the servitude of Allah subhanho wa Taala and how Allah elevated status, the province could have chosen Abu Bakar or he could have chosen Omar
he chose none of them. He chose below the line
And who, because the problems are Muslim dealt with these issues of racism 1400 years ago,
when a Buddha said to Bilal yamasa, you son of a black woman, and below the line who got insulted and he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, O Messenger of Allah. This is what a Buddha has said to me, and the prophets Allah Salaam called the Buddha, and he said, Yeah, bother inaka in brown, fecal janelia. He said, Oh Buddha, you are a man who still has the traits of ignorance in him. The pre Islamic traits, because and then the role is Allah Sam said something really profound. He said, Oh, Buddha, me, Mohammed. I am equally the son of a black woman, as I am the son of a white woman. Because the prophets Allah, Allah was breastfed by a black woman. The
problem is Allah Salaam dealt with the issues of racism 1400 years ago, and you see how deeply they're entrenched in us today. how deeply they take, we don't need any interference from America or anybody else to to, you know, destroy us. And this unite us. We do a good job ourselves. You look at the Somalian issue before clans chopping up clans. Why? Because they give preference to their clans over the La ilaha illAllah. You look at the issue in Sudan. It's an issue of race. You look at the issue of Pakistan. Karachi wants to break away. Baluchistan wants to break away, parts of South HUD want to break away and the Kashmiris are more speaking more about breaking away from Pakistan than
actually liberating macbooster Kashmir. Why? Because we bought into this. We bought into this Jaya Leah. And what will you end up with are telling you what you'll end up with. You will end up with Bahrain and Qatar, Abu Dhabi and Dubai and Sharjah and Rasul Hema that you spit from one side and you reach the other side. They have no power.
And many of us call to the call of Jai Leah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to say to a Buddha, he said oh Buddha. In the Cayman fecal gi Leah, you are a man who is calling to the call of God Leah. And then in another narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said listen to this. He said whoever called to the call of Jai Leah, he will be in the fire of jahannam and the Sahaba said insomma were in Salah. And the Messenger of Allah said insomma in fala. They said even if he prays in the fast the province Allah Salaam said even if he prays that he fasts, when the when the people of Makkah and the people of Medina, they created a treaty amongst them that the Muslims
are Macau and migrate to Medina.
A man called Iseman Matata, entered the gathering, and he saw belong and he's also haev. And he saw some on the Persian sohaib the Roman and he said the Arabs of Makkah and the aerodrome Medina have a treaty. It's game over for these guys. He said it sarcastically and while the mergeable jumped up. And he grabbed him. And he said, What did you say about my brothers? And he dragged him to the province of Milan he was alone. And the province of Lhasa Lama got enraged, and the province of Malala was gathered the people and he ascended the pulpit. And he said, let me tell you something. Arabic is not the father or the mother of any of you. Anybody who speaks the Arabic language is an
Arab on the Battle of 100. This was what the Sahaba were like, because before Islam, racism was deeply entrenched in the Arabs. But after Islam he was removed. On the Battle of huntik, the province Allah Allah made the mahadji rune into groups of 10, and the answer into groups of 10. And there was one man left over some man and Pharisees among the Persian and the answer and the Maharaja, what do they do? If it was us? We would say we don't want to meet Oh, Pakistani is not Bengali. You know, he don't speak our lingo. What do they do? They began to fight with each other. And I'm sorry said we want him because he was in Medina, waiting for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam, and the muhajir own said no, no, he migrated. He migrated to Medina he's from us, and the prophets Allah Allah Salaam said. That's all
Mine is not from the Mahajan read, noisy from the answer. He's from me and bait in from me and a little bit. And by Allah you see how the Muslim community are we destroyed you know many of us we are slave to people skins, we get overruled by the color of people's skins. Is that how shallow Muslims are become? You go look into the rich, the Gulf countries, you have two men have equal education. One is white, and the other is have a darker complexion. And the white person will get double the wages of the one with a darker complexion. Why? Because they're in all of a man's geometry. They're in all of the color of a man's skin. And that's the reality. And this was what the
problem is, or someone came to remove. And the Battle of Gods sia when the Rustom he was the second most powerful man on the face of this earth. And the rooster said, he said to Sodom, they'll be waqqas he said, Send me a man that I can speak to. Sedona people call center my man, Cora beam, Ahmed, you know, repeat now man who he was. He was a slave. He was ever seen in his entire life he spent in bondage, and then he embraced Islam, and he came out of bondage. And when he came into the gathering of Rustom, the second most powerful man on the face of this earth, he was lying on his throne, his gold bed, and when he entered on his view, and he had these patchy, closed, dark skin,
the men of Rustom his cronies saw him, and they began to laugh. Why? Because they judged him for his old clothes and his dark skin, but little did they know that under old clothes, and dark skin were characteristics for which Allah defined him as a lovely Allah
that Allah is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Allah subhanho wa Taala and then listen to the words of Robbie who knows them asked him why have you come?
And there'll be said will love the Sunnah leave Lena Khadija mansha mean a birdie he mean a bother to a bad lie bother to rob Billy but he said Allah has centers for what? For what? To remove whatever he wishes, from the servitude of man, to the servitude of the lord of man, to make him slaves from men to make them into slaves of Allah. And today Muslims have become slave to the color of people's skins. You have the younger generation, this slaves to some dark complexion rap artist, and that's the reality. They want to walk like them. They want to talk like them. Allah gives you a beautiful greeting, like assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah peace be upon me. And what do you say?
What's happening bro? What's happening? cozy? mystery.
You know, it's like the bunnies Raji. Allah gave them Manawa Salva, and what did they want? They wanted.
They want a doll. It's in the genes. He shouldn't be eating down for too long.
Allah gave him you know love gives you you want to emulate other people if you want to emulate men of dark complexion, whatever belong.
Wherever a man colobus at the summit or the Allah and who abandon the psalmist or the Allahu when the conquest of Egypt was taking place, the amount of the asset of the land the sentiments that a me and they sent him to the lead of Egypt. He would look okay.
And a murder and abandon the summit came forward. And he was of African descent. And makoki said to him to remove this man away from me, I don't want to speak to him. Send me somebody else. What do you want to do is one of the Arabs and the Sahaba the Allah Adam said, this is the man that you will speak to, for he's the best room amongst us and the most knowledgeable, we recourse to him in all matters. And nakaka said, he said how can you be pleased with this man being your Ameen? How can you be pleased with this man being your meal, he should be the lowest from amongst you. And the Sahaba the Lanham said, color doesn't make a difference to us. It's virtually what we look at. And then oh
by the Muslim is one of the land to move forward and obey the law of the land.
And makoki said toolbar This is speak to be softly I'm already scared of you and about them the sermon for the lion who said, I swear by Allah, I have left behind me, and 1000 men who are even more blacker than me. And if you sue them, it will be game over for you. And then he said, Oh Baba said I'm an old man. But by Allah, we are Muslims and we fight for the era. Although my youth as gun, I can still take 100 of your men on at this very time.
And then he said, we fight for the hereafter By Allah, if we will get had no wealth, or if we were given a value of gold, it would make no difference to us. If we had a value of gold, we would spend it in the path of Allah, because we regard the only virtue, the virtue of the hereafter. And as long as we have enough to fill our stomachs, that suffices, but you look at these men, these were men who created oma, and by Allah we break the oma, how often you hear about youngsters, Bengalis fighting against Pakistanis, Pakistan is fighting against Somalians. Where did you get this from? Where did this come from? we generalize when we speak about Bengalis. We say Bengali is all like this.
Somalians are all like this. Pakistanis are all like this. Have you ever seen a Pakistani and the Bengali arguing? The Bengalis defending everything about Bangladesh, and the Pakistanis defending everything about Pakistan. And then when the Bengali goes home, he's from select, he's cussing the people of Dhaka. You have a Pakistani that defending each other, defending Pakistan. And then when they go home, you get the Kashmiri saying, oh, you're a Punjabi.
Only Punjabi is like this. The Punjabi they're saying Oh, these buttons are like this. It never finishes. And then when it gets closer to home, you divide more. Then you divide on other issues. You are all these all these Raja like this? And all these good jobs are like this. What are you doing? Because by Allah Allah will not ask you when you go in your grave. Did you come from Pakistan, Bangladesh or Saudi Arabia? When we will ask you Did you divide the Ummah by your words? I say this is no exaggeration. I feel that this talk is about Bilodeau. The olana pillar was here today. I fear that they would be Muslim racist towards him. Because it's so inherent in us. You have
these huge machines called mosquito Bilaal roseola.
And he was below the law who came today. He couldn't even be a committee member because he doesn't come from the right place. He's not the right skin. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said Lisa mina manikato, Allah Allah Serbia,
he is not from amongst us, who fights for nationalism. He is not from amongst this, who fights for who dies upon nationalism, and this is so inherent within us and we divide the Ummah we divide the ummah. You look at the final hoot about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his final Hajj when he gave the hotbar What did he say? What did he say? And this was very important that all the 124,000 people were there. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, Love fatherly Arabic Allah amin wa jemena. Allah Robin will
elaborate taqwa. He said there is no preference for the what for the Arab over the non Arab and the non Arab over the Arab. And for the white over the black and the black over the white. Illa bit taqwa only taqwa only virtue. That's it. When, when has
he freed his slave girl? And then he married her. And why have you read the alarm and said, Hassan, what are you doing? You're diluting the blood of the Prophet sallallahu Muta grandson of the prophets Allah What did you learn who say Hassan are the Allahu said?
He said, it is a slum which elevates people. And it is the absence of Islam, which debasis people. This is what elevates people. Do you know who the wife are below the line Who was she was from the Quran.
She was the sister of
one of the 10 that was guaranteed genma he was a multi millionaire, multi millionaire.
And his sister was the wife of Bilodeau the olana. And today in today's society, you know, seriously, how often do we see, they can't find somebody from the same broderie from the same clan. So the sister becomes 40 years old, and she's never married. What could be greater than that? You deprived her of your youth, of her youth.
Just because you couldn't find find somebody make somebody pious, somebody of virtue, the promise Allah something you shouldn't marry. And just because you couldn't find somebody of your same clan, you deprived a person, an individual of having a life having a partner. And this is what this omiya has done to the Muslims. And this is something we need to break out of all the generalizations. Oh, that the Bengalis are like this. Why can't you look at people's good virtues? Every comb has good pros and cons. Why can you look at the positives. And when you see a person next time judging, not judging by where we come from judging, judging by his virtue, judge him about his character, and
that's what we believe it should be like, and below the Allahu
Allah Sallam told him to ascend the pulpit because he wanted to show a token of the society that he had come to create. And throughout the life of the prophets, Allah Salaam, below the line remain in the company of the prophets of Allah, Allah was alone, in her mother in suffer in Germany, or at home, he was the margin of the profits on the line ism, and every single battle of the prophets and the lows and who participated.
And this is, and when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was ill final illness, the narrations mentioned that below the lander would often give them and then he would call the message of Allah and the Messenger of Allah hadn't come out. So he went to call the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he saw the prophets Allah send them that he was becoming conscious and unconscious. And beloved Wahoos Nah. He said, What grief? He said what grief. He said, I wish my mother had never given me birth that I see this day, or that I had died before seeing this day. And then below, he went to give the van and he became unconscious. And then when the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam passed away, then regions mentioned that the prophets Allah Salaam body was still not buried, and below gave them and when he read a shadow nama Hamada masala, often when he would reach this state, the province of Muslim would come out of the house, which was adjacent to the masjid. And he looked and there was no messengers a little light, and it was so long. And then recently mentioned, that beloved began to choke. And he began to cry and all those around him began to cry. And for the next three days, below the alert, Andrew tried to give the alarm. Every time he will read a shadow one now Muhammad Rasulullah, he would begin to choke. And then he went to Abu
Bakr and he said, Oh, boubakeur, because he couldn't bear to remain in Medina without the prophets Allah Allah, Allah was a lump. And he said, Oh, boubakeur, allow me to leave. Cuz I heard the prophets Allah Allah mentioned the virtue of jihad, I want to do jihad. And Abu Bakar said, No banality, Steven me, I need you. And a lot of the Lama said aboubaker if you freed me for yourself, then keep me but if you freed me for the sake of Allah, then let me go. And Abubakar, the landfill allowed him to go, and he went into jihad. And then one might have been out of the land who was sleeping, and he saw a dream. And in the dream he saw the messenger of someone like they were
sending them and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said obey lol what is it that you never come to visit us? And he woke up and he traveled towards Medina at a hurried pace. And when he reached Medina, he lay on the grave of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam remembering His Habib and Hassan and Hussein came. And they said, Oh below give the van and it was the request of the grandchildren of the prophets Allah Allah Allah wa Salaam and below the line who got up and he gave the van a lower one on lower water. And then ration mentioned them Medina erupted, it erupted because it bought back the memory of the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the men and
women came out of the house, they were ripping their clothes
tearing their hair out. Cuz it reminded him of the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then below. He's tried to stay in Medina but he found it difficult. Could everybody where he would see look, it will remind him of the prophets, Allah Salah, and he couldn't be to remain in Medina and he left and then came the occasion
of the conquest of murshida AXA and the patriarch said that I will only give the key to Omar kebab and Omar are the Alon who traveled from Medina to Machu the Aqsa and all this harbor where there will be no giraffes or belemnite Hashanah. Holly been bullied while the ninja will. And they went up to Omar and they said Omar for crispy love to give.
And Omar asked bill out to give the Azzam and the ration mentioned that when Billa reached a shadow and now Mohammed rasulillah, those bids of the Sahaba when they embraced Islam, which were black, and now had become great. They became drenched with tears. They were they there was no Sahabi whose bid was not drenched. They had to console Omar up because it reminded him of being in the company of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And this was amazing virtue for beloved for he gave
in the Haram in Makkah in the mustard of the profits or loss on them. And also it must be there.
All three of the most holiest places. And then when bill out of the landfill bill out of the land, and the 20 year he passed away and the ration mentioned in Damascus he was passing away
and his wife said that it was you passing away she said well who's Nah, she said what grief? What sadness and belaz Allah He said say while for haha. He said what happiness? What happiness rather than elkie Mohammedan work as harbor is a tomorrow rather than Sol Taki Mohammed was harbor is a tomorrow I will meet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the companions. Can you imagine? Can you really imagine? You know what kind of Eman when
you're dying? You're leaving this dunya and you're happy to leave this dunya because you want to read the message of Allah. When the rubber is Allah Allah Allah was alongside of dunya sigil mop min what genital Kafeel that the dunya is signal Momin is a prison for the believer and the agenda for the kafir the allama. Right? Why is it a prison for the believer? Because it stops him from meeting a line. This is a prison because it doesn't allow you to meet a landlord and its agenda for the coffee code. This is all that they have. And can you imagine the state that you are dying? You are dying, but you are happy to die because you want to meet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and
bill out of the land who passed away in the 20th year of hedger.
He's buried in Damascus and macabre Baba Seville in Damascus, and his grave is still there. And many people go and visit the grave or bill out of the Allahu anhu. But this was a man that he may be buried here, but by a law he's destined for Jim. And I don't say these words lightly aligning with us all gave testimony. But there were many other testimonies. Upon occasion, a group of people from a bunny bouquet came to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they said O Messenger of Allah marry our daughter to somebody. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, What about below? And then they came again? And they said, marry our daughter to somebody and the
prophets Allah Salaam said, What about Babylon? And upon the third occasion, they came again, and they said, O Messenger of Allah marry our daughter to somebody. And the professor latinum said, What? What about Bilaal? A man of Jana? A man of Jenna in another generation, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said agenda to Mustafa Ella Bella.
Jenna longs for Bella we long for Jenna and Jenna longs for Bella. Upon occasion the prophets Allah Salaam really finished the fudger salah and he turned around and he said oh Bilal, what is it? What action do you do? That last night I entered into Jenna and I heard your footsteps in front of me. What action do you do? And below the alarm said the only action
What comes to my mind is that whenever my whoo breaks, I do my booboo again. And I pray to rakaats this was a man who was persecuted for the the most severe persecution he did.
He was the one thing of the province of Muslim. But why were his footsteps in genma because every time his whoo broke, he did Whoo. And he prayed to rockets. And this is why sometimes we think actions as insignificant, but they are very important because they are the foundations, your Salah is your connection with Allah. There was never any sahab you did not pray this Allah. The truth is when they pray this Allah they will connected with Allah. They reach the state of some
Beloved, on the day of judgment will be with the Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Bilal he said Bilal live in poverty, remain in the company of poor people and die in poverty. The problem is Allah Salim said regarding himself, Aloha, my name is Keenan. What admittedly, Miss Kenan was a student, Masaki Yama, Yama, he said, Oh Allah, as long as you keep me alive, then keep me alive in the state of poverty.
keep me alive in the state of poverty. And this is why when the progress Alas, Allen was passing away, the narration mentioned he only had seven dead hums in his possession. And he said to eyeshadow, the Latin ha, he said, Oh, I said give those seven bit hums in the path of Allah. And the province Allah seven became unconscious. And I said of the land who was attending to the message of Allah and the Messenger of Allah gain consciousness and he said, I should have you given those seven dill humps in the path of a ma. And she said, I was busy attending to you, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh, Ayesha, what will I do on the day of judgment that I will
stand in front of Allah and I will have both in my position only seven humps. Aloma Aloha, my name is Keenan Well, I'm Italy, Miss Kenan. Oh Allah when I leave this dunya Take me away from this dunya in the state of poverty. The narration mentioned when the professor Malala was a law passed away. I showed her the land her mentions that we didn't even have oil to burn in the lanten of the profits or loss, not even oil to burn. And then the rub is Allah Salaam said something amazing. He said Oh Allah when you take me into account on the Day of Judgment, then take me account with the poor people. And he told Below is a villain die with the poor people. And then reasons mentioned that
Bilal died in relative poverty. Why? Because he will be in the group of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is amazing honor for the poor people one money. What did the prophets Allah Selim say? He said, Oh Allah, Allah, take me into account with the poor people and the Ummah right, that this is honor for the poor people. The prophets, Allah said, I'm didn't say that take the poor people into account in my group. He said, Keep me with them. He said, Keep me with them.
Keep me with the poor people resurrect me and take me account on the Day of Judgment with poor people. And therefore my dear respect for brothers and sisters listening at home, you know the life of bill out of your life and who is the inspiration for us? It shows us how in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You can be regarded by society as nothing, but you become close to Allah and Allah elevates you. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that every man on the country, every man is from Adam, and Adam is from clean from dust. And then he said, Whoever whoever has, and is proud by his father's and by his lineage, then in the eyes of Allah, He is light as a spider. He
is light as a spider. And us look at below the line how and last month Allah elevated his status. And this is what Dean does. Dean doesn't look at the person's color, or his wealth, it look at your virtues. Finally, in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there was a Sahabi roseola on who and this hobby was from African origin. His name was saddled us with a solemn era, the alarm? And one day Sandra de la Lu came to the Messenger of Allah. And he said, O Messenger of Allah, why is it that nobody is ready to give me their daughter to marry? And the Prophet he asked the prophets Allah some ways it he said, am i less than virtue? And the prophets unless I'm saying no, you are as
virtuous as all these
Others, and then the Prophet is on the line he was asked What if there was a hub, who had recently embraced Islam? And he said, with him there were hub and they said they were hubs at home and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told Sadiq said go to the house of ignoble hub and request his daughter's hand in marriage. And if they were hubs daughter was known for a beauty Medina and Sandra the Lana went, he knocked on the door, he was elated.
And they will help open the door. And he said, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent me to ask your daughter's hand in marriage. And if there was a boy just embraced Islam, he looked at him. He said, You my daughter, on your Pike, said, Don't you know my daughter is one of the most beautiful girls in Medina. And his daughter was listening to this. And she said, Oh, my father, hold on, hold on. This is a request of the messengers on the law. They were solemn, we will repeat. If we turned down the request of the messenger some of the law there was a number and then she turned to sod and she said, Oh, stop, go until the Messenger of Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, I'm
ready to marry you. And if no one was elated, and he went back, and then if Assad was elated, and he went back and if they will have followed him, and then Mahara was 600. Durham's, and started 600. Durham's never seen 600 denims. So, the problem is Allah Sullivan said, Go to LA,
and this man, rhodiola, Anam and asked him, and he went to each one of them, and they gave him 200 and a bit. So before he thought he'd go to his wife, he thought he'd go and buy some prisons to find a new beautiful wife. And he was in the marketplace, and all of a sudden there was the call. Yeah, hi, Lama, e il cabbie, a llama he Erica B, Bill generosity of sherry, the call of jihad came. And then Rachel mentioned that Sam stood there, and he looked towards the heavens. And he said, Oh Allah with this, I will buy something which is pleasing unto thee. And he bought a sword, and he bought a horse. And he went into the battlefield and he covered his face. And the Sahaba said, Who is this
man who's covered his face and a leader the allies and leave him he's come to do jihad. And then region mentioned this other of the land who was went into the battlefield. And while he was fighting, he fell off his horse. And he pulled up his sleeves like this. And the province Allah Salaam saw his dark skin. And he said, Oh, sad is that you? and Sandra the learner said, Yes, it's me on messenger of Allah croissant knew if he had come with his face, open the prophets, Allah Allah would have sent him back. He said, O Messenger of Allah is me. And the prophets, Allah said, I'm looking at the conviction of this man, and he's an Assad by Allah. I see no other boat for you. But
Jana, and South became elated. And he jumped into the battlefield. And after a while there was a call or see Basra to see what's up South has been martyred sada has been martyred, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ran into the battlefield. And he took the head of sod, and he placed it on the blessing thigh, and his tears were flowing down his cheeks onto the cheeks of sod. And then after a while, the prophets Allah some smile, and then he turned away, and the Sahaba rhodiola Anam pseudo messenger of Allah, we've seen you do something today that we've never seen you do before. And the rub is Allah Salaam, said, When at the loss of my companion, and when I saw his conviction,
I cried, I cried. But then when I saw his status in genma, that he will buy the home. And then also messenger of Allah, what is the whole and the rubbers, Allah Salam said that it is a fountain where the water is sweeter than honey more white than milk. And when one person drinks if he will never be thirsty after that day, and then I looked away, because I saw his wife's in general running towards eagerly. And when they were running towards him, their shins were being exposed, and I looked the other way. And then there was a last term to the Sahaba. And he took the inheritance of sod, his horse and his sword. And he said, Take this to his wife, and tell her that this is the inheritance
that is left behind, and also informer that Allah has given sad women in Jannah, which are more beautiful than cheese, women in general, which are even more beautiful than she is. This was a man. When he first asked to progress or last time he didn't know his status.
But Allah and His Messenger newest status, and this is why my dear respected brothers and sisters, we need to move on from being shallow people, Muslims are not shallow, we judge people by their virtue bank balance komiya cars that they drive this and for shallow people, we judge people, you know by the virtues, may Allah subhanho wa Taala elevate the Sahaba of the land on our behalf. May Allah subhanho wa Taala elevate the lights of beloved of the Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Unitas with beloved and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam on the Day of Judgment. May Allah subhanaw taala keep us united in this dunya and May Allah subhanaw taala re unite us all in genital phyllodes
