If you look into the life of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam,
the most difficult time
in the life of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam
took place when he was getting down
and you look now our lives, how easy is for us to give them
you know people gave their life to propagate the deep for last panel.
They died to propagate this theme. If you look at the lives of Sahara one of the a lot and when you look at the life of Hollywood will either have the Landrieu look at the what was it if
it was propagating the D.
Shelby mentions, says
Khalid spread the deep
and those who became an obstacle, obstacle or impediment Khalid removed them
and he may have
But he ensured that millions entered into the deep
millions entered into the deep
but if you envisage it, I was in Omaha recently and
we traveled from Mecca to Medina. And I was looking at the terrain for those who have been for Amara or how
you look at the, the terrain
where this harbor of the Ulla anthem had to walk Makkah to Medina isn't that much of a journey compared to what they traveled for this hover of the land who traveled Sham
then duration that even some Sahaba of the Allah and whom rich Spain
now Can you imagine? You know what that journey must have been like? You know, we went to visit after the bombing took place.
We did the convoy which went from England the first convoy as part of the convoy and I remember, there was about 250 of us,
you'd stop at the service station. And the service stations are not like England, in Tunisia or Algeria and Morocco. By the time the third person's use, the toilet is blocked. And it's only two toilets. And they were brothers who are cracking up and no exaggeration. there guys come to share and can't take it anymore. We can't manage and I think it's upon Allah and we all found the journey difficult. But compare that to what this habit of the Allah the sacrifice that they gave for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and how easy that we have it today but we are demand is such that it will not motivate us that we get off our backsides and give our neighbor our
then we day in day out what do we say
me you go in general only being you the other guys and I've been there a bit way would that mean you going gender?
Pamela you know
look at the Christians get the Christians look at Jehovah's witnesses who will say you know spent entity
got nothing. That's what you know, Muslims say we and the truth. This is the salvific path. This is the path which takes you to Allah Subhana Allah and this is why, you know last month Allah says in a certain stop him. Show us the straight path and the more for Syrian say
You know, a Serato Mr. Team is Marfa is Elif lamb upon it because there's only one part of the last panel. There is no other path other than that to our last panel,
but they are motivated enough to come and knock on your doors
to call you from what? From New illegible math, from guidance to misguidance, from light to darkness.
And me and you who profess that we have the truth. Our Eman is such that it cannot motivate us that we call our neighbor to a last panel
that we call our friend to our last panel.
And you look at the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in the ninth year of hegira in the life of the prophets of Allah. So in ninth year of after revelation descended, this is in the life of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam known as
the year of grief. Why? Because this was the year in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam beloved wife Khadija or the Allah anha passed away. And this was also the year where he's three days after that his uncle treated after Batali passed away, Khadija rhodiola and how passed away and this is known as Ahmed Hassan in the life of the Prophet Allah Salaam. And she mentioned that all the attacks that the machete Keane perpetrated on the province of Allah and they were seldom placing their test intestines on the back of the province or lesson on when to use Institute when Abu Jamal tried to attack the Prophet salaallah alayhi wasallam all of these took place after the death abou
panic. So the purpose of the law and it was a long wait to dive into life. They will his relatives as well.
And the problem is Allah Salam wanted to give them Dawa anyone in protection from them as well. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to life and the narrations differ in some region that the province allows them to remain there for 10 days and other duration. The province is a little larger, they will remain there for 30 days.
Not one person embraced Islam.
Now one person embraced Islam who was giving the dour.
It was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam there was no greater died and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
When the rotary Salah Salem stood on the mountain of sofar, and he gathered the people toward the lowest hammer down and this is the way if they had an important issue, they would stand on the mountain are so far and they would shout and the people will gather at the foot of the mountain, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, if I was to tell you that behind this mountain, there is an army ready to attack you, would you believe me?
And in one voice is that of course you are so different, I mean, impeccable character. You know, you're the most upright amongst this. And then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, I warn you, that day will come that you will stand in front of Allah and that there is no God but Allah and I am his messenger and his own uncle Abu lahab said the Buddha Muhammad Allah has a jamatkhana isn't May you be destroyed a Muhammad Is this what you what you have gathered us for.
And nobody embraced Islam.
Allah and who says, You know, I was the 49th or 50th person to embrace Islam. And he went out of the line embrace Islam, six years after the first call six years, in a period of six years, only 50 people embraced Islam.
50 people embraced Islam, at the hands of who the greatest of die is Alomar, they were similar.
So the problem is a lot of them gave these people down. And every single one of them turned away and then they sent the urgent and the low lives of five. And then regimes mentioned that they stood on the side of the street.
And they did the hardest or the alarm was with the message of Allah sallallahu Sallam and they began to pelt the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with rocks until his entire body began to flow with blood, he should be able to stick to his feet because of the blood.
And then the hardest and of the land and it will throw a rock and he would come in this way and it would hit z and sometimes it would hit the message of Allah Allah Allah Allah wa Salaam
and I shadowed the Allah Allah as the Messenger of Allah she said our message of Allah what was the most difficult time in your life? Was it the Battle of a heart? When 70 Sahaba of the alanon were martyred for this Deen
and the progress or lessons
it was the occasion of tie.
It was occasion of ties when I came to give these people Tao and they turned upon me.
And then Subhana Allah, Allah subhanaw taala sin, the angel Jupiter in and with the angel debrided A salatu salam was the angel which controls the mountains. And he Brian said to the message of Allah, Allah Allah there was a lump here let's see what these people have diverged, don't you, if you wish with me is the angel which controls the mountains. If you wish, I will command him, and then he will crush
the people of die if you will make the mountains collapse on the people of Dave and the brothers Allison refused the offer. He declined the offer.
And he said maybe somebody from their progeny will embrace. Maybe somebody with the progeny will embrace. And you know, the people of thrive, were one of the last people to embrace Islam.
They're one of the last people to embrace Islam, and they put all these funny conditions and they accept any of them. But when after the demise of the prophets, Allah Salah, the people rebelled, there was three cities in which nobody really hardly anybody rebelled one was MCE, the other one in Medina. And the third was
the people of type didn't rebel.
They remain firm upon the DEA.
And the problem is a lot of them said no, maybe if somebody
from the progeny will embrace Islam, and then the brothers are less of them said What did he say? What did he say, you know, write them off, you know, write the people or they're not worth it. You know, that's how sometimes we are
not worth it, you know, Cliff
was telling me to cook for
dinner with the tower. So Pamela, you know, if it wasn't for the sacrifice of people like this Harborne of the army, and those people who came after them. I asked you in the time where did Islam reach?
In a period of 10 and a half years? Where did Islam reached? The Islam reached as far as Macron? You know, Mo cron is it's about a couple of 100 miles away from Karachi. It's in Pakistan. Macron is in Pakistan.
In a period of 10 and a half years, that's how far Islam reach Why are these people had a passion?
They had a passion to propagate the deed. The man was such that it motivated them. And what is the problem is that most of them say after five, he said What did he say? He said a lot of money esqueleto Cava quwata illa de Waal hawan Allah nausea or hammer Rahimi? He said, Oh Allah, I've complained to you about what I complained to you about the Jews, the Zionists, the Americans,
the machine a key now what is the last of them say, in the most difficult time in his life? By own words? The problem is a lot of them said a lot of complaining to you about my own weakness.
Pamela, I own weakness and my insignificance in the eyes of other people.
And my lack of ingenuity and my lack of ingenuity Who is this? So the greatest of days Allah Allah Allah was alone. You know, the problem is Allah Salam utilized methods of Dao
which were unparalleled before him.
Any method that the Brahmins are lessons within the Hadoop classroom could utilize for Dawa, he utilized them
when Shima you know, his, this was his, this was his sister, by law. When she came into the gathering of the professor Lola was accused of machinic he bought her into the machine of visa Lola and it was summer
and he gave a Dao I took off his cloak for her.
Then the people on the john the Christians of Iran came.
And when they came, and they wanted to speak about to the province of La Salaam, and the province of La Solomon gave them down when he sat with them. And then they began to speak with each other about something and the province of Lhasa. What are you speaking about listening nothing. And the messenger Allah asked him again, and he said, it's time for our prayer. These are Christians. It's time for our prayer.
We need to pray. So
The barber is Allah solemn? Who are these? These were people who believe that Elijah was the son of Allah. They believed in Trinity. We wouldn't be sitting, they were sitting in the second most holiest Masjid on the face of this earth. And what did they say to them?
He said, Pray here.
So pray here.
Why? Because his concern for them coming to all the havoc
in overrode everything else.
He told him pray the machine and machine the beast Allah Allah was Sallam
because this was the concern that he had.
And we, you know, Allah says about us in the Quran, the word the Tablighi brothers say so many times, you know, contemplado Martin rejet linas that morona Bill maruf what and Hunan in one car, you know, you are the best of people best so people when
when you dissipate your entire existence, you know, in in accumulating bricks and mortar
and accumulating, you know, the biggest card that you can your entire life, the only thing that gets you out of bed in the morning is what? It's not that you have to stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala
is that the fact that you have to get to university
is the fact that you got an assignment to do is the fact that you have to go to work if that is what if that is what inspires you to wake up in the morning then what is awkward to you is
what you all say Allah,
Allah is the Greatest.
But many of our lives are totally contrary to our statement. And you know what they call this the quality hypocrisy that you say with your tongue, you say Allah, but Allah is the Greatest, but your entire life is accumulating, you have become the slave of the dollar and the dime.
You are more inspired by the apprentice than you are by the Quran.
And the prophets Allah sometimes tries to tell him what to do dinar destroyed is the slave of the Delhomme of the pound and destroyed is the slave of the dinar that he's that's what he aspires for. That's what motivates him. We wake up in the morning because we got to get to work. But we can't wake up for the future Salah
so who is activated in our eyes?
We are ready to upset her law.
But we don't want to upset her boss. No, no, no.
We need to get to work.
So who's our inspiration in life? And unless they
reject the narcissist You are the best so people when
not because you live in Leicester.
But many of you guys who live in Leicester think Highfields is Darul Islam, is Daro. khilafah. All you need is a Salif.
And that that supplies and I always say this and you know
Alhamdulillah you know, what the Indians have achieved with the Indians and the Pakistanis in the Bengalis have achieved in England is very good in the sense that they've been amazing the way that they've protected the dean
the masajid on every corner, every corner of the machine to three of them.
Every mother sir, in every every corner, there's massagin
Mashallah, the dollar looms
you know, and it's amazing protection of the theme, nobody can touch us. But when it comes to dow, we are totally default.
When it comes to protecting the team,
and as and creating Institute's, and massages and organizations Alhamdulillah with unparalleled, but that's as far as it goes.
Then you have your Masjid or all Masjid and this is literally threw out the Asian community. Pakistani machine.
pangani machine gujarathi machine.
digerati then split into two so deep Rucci
and then you got the nearby somewhere in the middle
and now we got this mining machines.
So Pamela, since when did the house of Allah become Somalia?
Now when Since when did the house of Allah
Become blue CIO. So
you talk about yeah Billa look at the sacrifice of
sacrifice and this was an amazing thing wise, wise, wise.
Wise lubaina wise, onaiza wise, wise, Amar why yahsat special in this beam, because they sacrifice when nobody have sacrificed, they gave their life they gave their blood, they gave their sweat for the sake of Allah when nobody else sacrificed, but I could have easily said, You know what? The prophets Allah Sallam said that time will come when this Deen will be,
you know, it will be dominant. I'll wait until that time. I'll wait until that time. For this time on Mo. For this time, you know, my name is Bill. Now I'm not talking about Bill I'm talking about many people who are like this today.
Oh, my, you know, I you know, and the 100 law, in many ways, you know, is a photo of Allah subhanaw taala. We're in England and we're not in many other parts of the West. And we are very proud of our identity. Islamic identity here. I traveled to many other parts. Pamela actually scares me
as he scares me. But you know, if Bilal came today,
I asked you, how many of us would give him power
belong would not even be allowed to be a committee member in our machines.
Because he doesn't come from our tribe.
He doesn't come from our clan.
He doesn't come from Dhaka. He didn't say pony.
Nobody Latino and token.
But that's the reality.
That's the reality. The Deen is meant to be dynamic. The Sahaba the alarm they reached out and they gave the Dow it didn't matter. The province Allah Salaam created a thing called an Emma salmaan the person man the person was a part of this drama. So hey, the Roman was a part of this oma below the hub. She was a part of this oma on the Battle of the 100. The province of Milan, it was a little divided the, the Mahajan and dancer into groups of 10.
And it gave them duties to dig the trenches. And then there was then there was some man, some man was in a Mahajan. Oh, was the answer. So what did they say? What did the Sahaba of the alarm say? They say, you know, bro, you know, he's not bongani. We're not really interested.
You know, he's not Somali, and we're not interested know the answer. And the Mojave road began to fight with each other. They both said we want him. And the Mahajan said no, because he came to Medina from outside. He's a Mahajan.
And then says that no, no, he was already in Medina and the Messenger of Allah Allah said, Okay, so he's unsolved. So what is Allah Salaam say? The prophets Allah Salam said, He's not from the Mahajan noisy from the answer. He is from me and my family.
Because he created this thing called an
you know, and I was recently in martial arts, I gave a talk and badly and some brothers came to me.
One was Afro Caribbean Brava and one with the Pakistani River. And I just spoke about, you know, outreach projects, and how we should have outreach projects for the province of Muslim disability did his little issue he, you know, post a Muslim had a vision. And he had the goal. And he could see that how that manifested in the Sahaba, the Allah animal, petty little issues, one an issue for this harbor the alarm, they had great goals. And this is why in a period of 10 and a half years look at what the Atlanta chiefs in the period of 10 and a half years,
Islam reached all the way to Macron
all the way to mccrum. In a period of 10 and a half years, O'Meara Delano defeated the two superpowers of the day, the Romans and the Persians. The Persians had been a superpower for more than 1200 years, 1200 years and then out of the land who came and he and he destroyed him. And he bought a system which was a system of justice. And he removed the Romans as well. And then Omar the alarm What did he do? He started things like the welfare system.
Every child can you believe this? Every child which was born in the Muslim world in the time of
the law, would be given a child would be given child benefit
A group of people came into Medina
and Omar de Landa, who was at that time the most powerful man on the face of this earth. most powerful man on the face of this earth, He told
a man I mean, you look after these people who was abducted off of the Americas over the Lamb who was a multi millionaire, one of the 10 who was guaranteed gender and you know, his sister, he was on the floor he says there was no to bill out of the allowable
today's like you know, no, you don't come from my tribe. You don't come from my clan. So you know come get married to you me apologize I don't know certain cars etc toxic to my own. You know, my own my cars but my own people you know me I'm a Raja I'm a mogul. You know, the
the Mughals were people the Mongols, who ruled India.
So this guy, he lives in England somewhere in Sparkbrook.
And his great great great, great, great, great grandfather's great great grandfather happened to be some mogul and now he's a taxi driver. And he said, Nah, I'm a mogul.
And the other one says now Mr. Raja we used to rule as well.
You're you work in a takeaway.
Your take away
but this is a thing.
Because see, that which is the identity
by Allah is no longer an identity. We don't regard it as our first identity. When you learn your grade by loving my ass you were you an Arab? Were you Somalian were you Pakistani, he will ask you. Did you believe? How did you spend your life? Did you wake up for the future Salah was your entire purpose in life to accumulate goods.
Was your aspiration you aspired that you lived in high fidelity then you wanted to move to evington
that you had on micro? And then you looked at your neighbor who had a BMW said you wanted a BMW that bring her happiness?
Do you think that brings happiness happiness is knowing your purpose in life is having a goal. You look at the most famous man on the face of the earth become Michael Jackson. You look at Whitney Houston.
Now they had everything which many would dream at their feet didn't bring happiness to them.
It didn't bring happiness to them.
But you can dissipate your existence, your food 40 5060 years in pursuing something that you are never gonna really achieve. You know? dudeck xinyi Rahim Allah nurudeen was the teacher of Salahuddin. They say there was no new D there would have been no Salahuddin Abernathy like him or her love. The famous walrus says that I have studied the lives of all the whole of Russia
and those who came after them. And he said since Omar Abdulaziz, the Muslims never had the leader who was as just as new Dena Rahim Allah.
And he was the teacher of Soho Dean. And then racing mentioned that one day he was going out with his counterparts.
And he was on a horse. And all of a sudden, he began to ride the horse very quickly. And they're watching and there's a shadow, the shadow of the horse is in front of the horse. And he's and he's riding Quick, quick, and then all of a sudden, he, he turns the horse around, and now the shadows behind the horse, and he's riding. And then he comes back to his men. And it's a genuine did that said I wanted to show you the example of the denier.
No matter how much you chase it, you will never be able to catch it. And when you turn your back away from the dunya dunya will chase you.
And this is why lokmanya hakima Rahim Allah says
word for the dunya according to the time that you are going to live in it
weren't for the camera, according to the time that you're gonna live in the camera.
And terminal abode is by alized.
So then what what makes us dissipate our entire existence? What makes us act like that? We're never gonna die. We'll make sense that future time comes that we can't motivate ourselves to go for the future.
What is it
That we say that the D that we have is the truth, but we never propagate it
is that an indication of our man if it is an indication of a man that we need to work
because he you either your Eman is up here sapan Allah, either a man is appear and it never goes down because the belief
is that a man increases and decreases. So you either your plan is up here and it never goes down and then you're an angel, and they happening or it's down here and it never you never feel the difference is rock bottom. This one read all the time.
The time and the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam upon occasion. Abubakar de Landa saw hands a lot of the Allahu Allah was a buddy Sahabi and he saw hensler sitting and crying and avocado the alarm said Oh, hands up. Why are you crying? why you look so sad? And hands out of the alarm who said abubaker naffaa hands lantzville become a monastic?
A buttery Sahabi is an impossible Hansel abundante Sahabi never How can I become a monastic? And he said Hansel has become a monastic. And he asked him how he said, when I'm in the company of the prophets, Allah salam, it's as though Jana and Jana MA in front of us,
gentlemen, jahannam are in front of us. That's how real they work. This is what the Sahaba of the lamb for them gender was what law he was real. Why because a man will at that level, Jenna was real for them. They believed
they sacrifice everything they they had. Why? Because they will Allah was real. Gentleman Jana was real. And this is why they could put their hands in their pocket, and they could spend for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala of one occasion, the prophets Allah was sitting with the Sahaba, the Allahu, and the young man came to the gathering of the prophets, Allah Salah, and he said, I'm missing you balama your team.
And I have a garden. And I want to create a wall around my garden. But there's one tree right in the middle, and my neighbor who's a Muslim as well, he owns that tree. He owns that tree. And I've asked him to sell me that tree and he won't
sell them the last one call this man. And this man was actually a monastic. He said, with his tongue what was not in his heart.
And the problem is a lot of them asked who said sell me that tree, and I promise you a tree in general, and he was unaware of it. And he refused. And I
was sitting there, and Abu Dhabi, Allah and who said,
he said, a message of Allah,
O Messenger of Allah, if I bring you that tree, you promise me a tree in general, and the province of blossoms and I promise you achieved and the Buddha the Lord who went and he said to the malefic, he said, sell me that tree, and I'm gonna fix it. I didn't sell it to the Navy, you think I'm gonna sell it to you? And he said, Do you know why? And he said, of course, a Buddha said, Do you know what my God and he said, Who doesn't know about the God? Oh, Buddha, was beautiful garden in Medina. Beautiful, well, a palace, and Abu Dhabi alarmists had sent me that one tree and I promise you, I will give you my entire garden.
And he said, You're having a laugh. And he said to me, and he gave him that one tree. And a Buddha does elated, because he knows that once he goes into Gemini and coming back out,
and he goes into the gathering of the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi Salaam and the province of Allah, Allah is sitting with the Sahaba of the land, what Allah has revealed to him what has happened, and to the gathering, and the brothers are lost. And I'm saying, oh, Buddha, when you went away, I promise you one tree in general, by now I swear by Allah, that your agenda is full of trees.
You're full of trees. But then the amazing thing was that a Buddha went, and he and his wife was in the palace. And a Buddha, the lion went to his wife, and he said, Carrie up out of the garden, and she said, why should because I've exchanged it for trees in Jannah that you can travel under this shade for 100 years and it will not finish. And what did the wife say? He said Robbie has said what a buck. What a bargain. wife for them. Love was real.
Well, then gentlemen, Jana was real for us. So Pamela, a man is such that doesn't even motivate us to pray us.
A man is such you know, we are more motivated by the dunya than we are for our eternal life. And this is something that we need to work on.
They went into the gathering of the brothers Allah Allah and the Prophet is Allah Selim, they told her prophets Allah Allah said O Messenger of Allah Abu Bakar to become a monastic as well. 100 said handled C'mon avec, and the message of Allah asked why. And they said, O Messenger of Allah when you were in your company, it says don't gentleman gentleman in front of us. But when we go back home, domestic chores are in mind decreases, our state decree changes and the profits or loss and I'm sad, I swear by Allah, if you could remain in the same state that you are in front of me, the angels would descend and they would shake your hands and they would disallow you on the streets.
But this is why my dear respective brothers and sisters a man is something that we make an effort on. Remaining good company give our well lovely, amazing way of strengthening your ima to give dollar because it kills enough's. You go and you give Dawa to Muslim Brothers, you go and get down to the non Muslims, your Sensei, you ask Allah for guidance upon Allah you see how it's changing.
So May Allah Subhana Allah make us amongst those who entire life is spent, you know for his sake, I am mourning the spin for his sake. afternoons are spent for his sake evenings are spent for a segment last month Allah keepers unite Indonesia and May of last month are reunited in the for those who Mashallah, last month I reward the brothers and the sisters who are involved in the organization Mashallah May Allah give them its data and listen for those who cannot help financially and you can give you a time crunch
Yeah, I can give you a time. It gives an effort you know, this, this is an obligation as a quantum hydrometer operator. So, you are the best people taken out for the benefit of humanity, humanity mercy, your cave, your neighbor's house in your head, I tell you what your neighbors can see your health because there is no more non Muslim living in Highfields in evington.
Before Muslims used to move to an area that non Muslim would follow them Muslim left Spain the non Muslims follow them free. Now Muslim move into area if they know you know the boys hiding on the street corners, the drug dealers the because the lot of noise and the smell of curry and everything else that goes with it. Now last month Allah makers amongst those who who you know who served the deen last month Allah makers people who truly, truly believe lies
with our heart
