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

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim

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

al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

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

wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Karim while early he was hyper human Serbia Hamid Hassan in in a humid Dean robot, their respective brothers elders salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

00:00:24--> 00:00:42

gives me great pleasure to be at this robotic machine Mashallah. I've heard many great things we are last pantalla except the efforts of the brothers and sisters who have been involved in Las Vegas also Baraka and guidance for the local community.

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

Today I wanted to speak about

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

loving the message of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:00:55--> 00:01:03

and believing in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and following the precepts of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:01:06--> 00:01:16

As for believing in a messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhanho wa Taala states in the Quran for amin hoobler, he wore a suit he

00:01:17--> 00:01:33

believed in Allah and His messenger. So it is an obligation for every single individual to believe not only in Allah, but to also believe in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:01:35--> 00:01:43

As for following the wajib and the fall of the following the messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah subhanaw taala also says in the Quran,

00:01:45--> 00:01:48

in kuntum, tebboune, Allah to be only you may become Allah.

00:01:49--> 00:01:54

Say, a message of Allah, if you truly love Allah.

00:01:55--> 00:02:05

If your love is true for Allah, for to be only, then follow me. And in return, Allah will love you.

00:02:06--> 00:02:12

So a lot of love for a individual is

00:02:14--> 00:03:02

on the condition that a person follows the message of Allah sallallahu sallam. So it's not just enough to believe in the message of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam, but Allah says in kuntum to hipbone Allah for tibbett oni so the command here is what we do in the Arabic language, the word the br is a little calf which follows the parent wherever it goes. And this is what a believer is like with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he follows the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and in return, only then will Allah subhanaw taala love you. Now, we are also an obligation to love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So every believer we

00:03:02--> 00:03:10

know must love the message of Allah sallallahu wasallam but to what degree? That's a question, isn't it?

00:03:11--> 00:03:20

Every believer professes that he loves the message of Allah. But to what degree are you required to love Allah subhanho wa Taala and then love is nubby.

00:03:22--> 00:03:32

And this is clear from the narration, where the Prophet is Allah Allah wa sallam said, la you may not have an akuna Hubba Alayhi. Meanwhile, he was one of the witnesses,

00:03:34--> 00:03:48

that none of you can be a true believer until I am more beloved to him than his parents, his children and the entirety of humanity.

00:03:50--> 00:04:03

So to be a complete, complete believer, a person must love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than he loves anything else. That is the requirement.

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

Why is it today that we don't really have that element of love for the message of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Because the truth is, although we profess and every believer should profess that he loved the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but how much do we learn about the life of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:04:25--> 00:04:37

really hand on heart. How many people here can say that they read an entire book, from cover to cover on the sealer of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:04:38--> 00:04:39

hand on heart.

00:04:40--> 00:04:53

And this is meant to be a guide the more you learn about the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The more you love the prophets, Allah Islam, the Sahaba the vast majority when they gave beta to the Messenger of Allah when they embraced Islam.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

They didn't have the optimum love, but the more they learned

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

About the life of the province of Lhasa them, the more they sat with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they love increased when they met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this saw the love when the boy is a Muslim would shake someone's hand Subhana Allah, he would not release that person's hand until that person pulled away his hand himself. Imagine

00:05:22--> 00:05:46

I was walking in just now and a guy gave me Salam. But I didn't really want to, you know, stand there shake his hand because I was being late for the Juma. I don't have the burden of humanity on my shoulders. The province Allah Salam had the burden of humanity on his shoulders. Still the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam afforded people time, the Sahaba says that the Messenger of Allah when you spoke to him,

00:05:47--> 00:05:52

he would turn his entire countenance his entire body towards you.

00:05:53--> 00:06:08

And then he would speak to you until I'm gonna ask I'm gonna ask embrace Islam leet and one of the assays that the message of Allah showed me so much love, show much, so much affection that I believe that I was the closest person to him.

00:06:09--> 00:06:15

Until I said to the message of Allah, message of Allah. Am I better than Abu Bakar?

00:06:16--> 00:06:27

embraced Islam from the beginning? He said, No. I said, Okay. The love that you're showing me I must be better than Omar, he said, am I better than Omar? The Messenger of Allah said, No.

00:06:29--> 00:06:44

Is it then I must, at least we move beloved than the Messenger of Allah said no amount of the assets I regretted asking the Messenger of Allah this question, but it was the love and the affection that the Messenger of Allah Allah, Allah, Allah wa sallam afforded me.

00:06:45--> 00:06:59

So the more you study the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the more that you will love the message of Allah, Allah Allah lives and listen, the more you impart the love of the message of Allah to your children.

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

The more you teach them about the level of prophets, Allah Allah, that is what will keep them on the deed. It's not delete fields.

00:07:10--> 00:07:20

Research has shown those people who remain on the religion are those people who have felt the religion who had an emotional connection with the religion.

00:07:21--> 00:07:33

Not those who you give, delete upon delete. So if your children know the profit and loss, if you spent time teaching them about the love of the Messenger of Allah, if you spent time before they went to sleep,

00:07:34--> 00:07:54

and telling them stories about the love of the profits and loss of them, the sacrifice of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that last panel Darla said to the prophets, Allah, Allah in the Quran, maybe you will destroy yourself, following those people, following those people who do not embrace Islam because of your finger and your concern.

00:07:55--> 00:08:08

You all know the duration with a province Allah Salam would stand at night and he would cry for the oma until then ration mentioned that a noise would come from his chest, like it was a boiling kettle

00:08:10--> 00:08:34

and if you know all this, and your children know all this, then it will keep them firm upon the deen of Allah subhanaw taala if they know that this man was just not an object of, you know, praise once in a month, no, but his life was a life that if you follow it, you will have contentment in this dunya and you will also have contentment in the Akira.

00:08:36--> 00:09:02

And this is why for a believer if you really have to love that some things happen in the world. It upsets a person. If somebody says something crude, rude insults your parents, it's your fitrah it's your nature to be upset. If nothing ever upsets you.

00:09:03--> 00:09:08

Then Emma then Imam Shafi Rahmatullah. They said, You're a donkey.

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

Nothing upsets you. You're a donkey. For that man who was a guidance for humanity, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, without the message of Allah. There is no agenda.

00:09:23--> 00:09:28

There is no Islam. There is no drama. There is no nica there is no janaza

00:09:29--> 00:09:50

oma bla bla bla bla and who was walking with a messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And Omar said O Messenger of Allah, the Messenger of Allah is holding his hand and he's walking with Him. And Omar sees that affection and he said, the mercy of Allah you know how much I love you. I love you more than anything in the world. Besides that which is between these two sides.

00:09:51--> 00:09:52

The message of Allah said,

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

none of you can be a true believer, until I am more beloved to him.

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

Then everything else on the face of this earth

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

and Omar roseola and will begin to think.

00:10:09--> 00:10:18

And after a little while Omar says, Oh messenger of Allah, you are more beloved to me that even myself and on the Messenger of Allah said, Allah,

00:10:19--> 00:10:25

Allah and now more now you become a true believer. Mm hmm tabi says, How did Omar

00:10:26--> 00:10:33

have this change of heart All of a sudden? How is it possible? He says because Omar began to think,

00:10:34--> 00:10:37

what is Omar without the Messenger of Allah.

00:10:38--> 00:10:57

Omar was in silk without the Messenger of Allah. Overhead no Islam without the message of Allah. Omar would have never become a Sahabi. Without the message of Allah Omar would have never become a mirror momineen without the message of Allah Omar would have never been buried next to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam without the Messenger of Allah.

00:10:59--> 00:11:03

Omar there was no Jenna for Omar. And Omar began to think.

00:11:04--> 00:11:12

And he said, I'll message you when you are more beloved to me than everything else on the face of this earth. You know, there was a veteran.

00:11:14--> 00:11:21

And he's in the desert. And Bedouin he used to find his way because of the moon.

00:11:23--> 00:11:26

He can't find the moon. It's cloudy.

00:11:27--> 00:11:34

So he's looking for the moon. He can't find his way. And then all of a sudden the moon comes out.

00:11:35--> 00:11:42

And you find he's looking at he's finding his way back home. And he says yeah, you will come or mother aku luck.

00:11:44--> 00:11:49

He said, Oh moon. What can I say about you?

00:11:51--> 00:12:10

He said, Rafa, la la casa de la. So May Allah elevate you. May Allah make you high. And Allah has made you high. Nevada, la, la carte, Nevada to LA. May Allah May illuminate you and Indeed Allah has illuminated you.

00:12:11--> 00:12:17

The jamala cola laka jamala cola. So May Allah make you beautiful?

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

And Allah has made you beautiful.

00:12:22--> 00:12:34

So apologies. If this word a Bedouin face to the moon who has lost his way Then what do I say to you? Oh Mr. uvala mother akula kya Rasul Allah. Yes, a de Rafa la

00:12:36--> 00:12:43

hora fontanella Katie Couric, may Allah elevate your status. And indeed Allah has elevated your status as you mentioned in the

00:12:44--> 00:12:50

number of Allah, may Allah illuminate you and Allah said, akumina life

00:12:52--> 00:12:55

will be from Allah subhanaw taala has come a new

00:12:57--> 00:13:14

and the Kitab on mu B and the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Jamila kala, O Messenger of Allah, Allah make you beautiful, because and then the Sahaba says, and we speaking about mood here, yeah. The Sahaba says, I looked at the moon.

00:13:16--> 00:13:37

And I looked at the face of the Messenger of Allah. And I looked at the full moon again, and I looked at the face of the message of Allah. And I looked at the full moon again, and I looked at the beautiful illuminated face of the Messenger of Allah. And he says, I swear by Allah, the face of the Messenger of Allah was more beloved and more beautiful, then the full moon.

00:13:39--> 00:13:41

But we love the mercy of Allah. Why?

00:13:43--> 00:13:43

Why

00:13:44--> 00:13:47

could the Messenger of Allah was a source of guidance for us.

00:13:48--> 00:13:55

He was sent by Allah, he had the Ficker he had a concern. And it is because of those teachings we have gathered here today.

00:13:57--> 00:14:18

And this is why when we see insults of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a believer feels upset, undoubtedly, no matter under what pretense his freedom of speech, whatever it is. And you know, freedom of speech is very good for those who are, who don't have a voice. It's good.

00:14:19--> 00:14:31

But a freedom of speech can also be a smokescreen, for those who are in the corridors of power, who are the media?

00:14:32--> 00:15:00

Who are the institutions of power when they all gang up against a minority, then freedom of speech can also be a smokescreen for bigotry, for racism and Islamophobia, like we've seen in this country, like we see in France, really interesting a country. You know, who loves to speak about freedom of speech, but you don't allow women freedom of expression. You don't allow women

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

To wear a ties that they want to, because they hypocrisy and we should understand that the world not just France, the world uses Muslims as a pawn as a political pawn when they want to China the wiegers

00:15:16--> 00:15:21

manemma the rohingyas Modi's India.

00:15:22--> 00:15:35

Even the mayorship of London Zac Goldsmith, when they want to use when they want to create the other the enemy, what do they use? They use the Muslims. And I was checking is really interesting

00:15:37--> 00:15:43

that the hypocrisy especially of France, France takes the biscuit in all honesty,

00:15:44--> 00:16:27

you know this week about freedom of speech and values. It's got nothing to do with values. I'll tell you what it's got to do. It's got to do with double standards. Look at France's record 2005 there was an advert which they banned because it insulted the sentiments of the Catholics 2005 2009 Charlie Hebdo they sacked a cartoonist who was a cartoonist for 20 years. Because he came out with some anti semitic sentiment sentiments. at the very same time they were insulting the Muslims. Week after week

00:16:29--> 00:16:30

2010

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

the government forced the prosecutors

00:16:35--> 00:16:43

to try to ban the BDS and the anti discrimination laws, freedom of speech.

00:16:44--> 00:16:49

You deny the Holocaust, you can get up to three years in prison.

00:16:52--> 00:17:20

But when it comes to the Muslims, Suppan a lot is different double standards hypocrisy, to the degree that after the first stabbing, and listen, I'm not here condoning the stabbings. If you don't like the law of the country, you got two options. You either your three options, you either abide by it, which you all have to abide by, or you work to change it or you leave the country.

00:17:21--> 00:17:25

That's the options that you have. Otherwise you have anarchy.

00:17:26--> 00:17:39

we abide by the law of the land. Even though we might dislike the law. We don't have to agree with the law. But you have to abide by the law of the land. So after the first stabbing,

00:17:40--> 00:17:43

and I really found it honestly interesting. The first stubbing

00:17:45--> 00:17:48

I don't know justifying it, I'm just putting it into a context.

00:17:50--> 00:18:01

You when you have Muslims in your classroom as a teacher, shouldn't you take into consideration the sentiment of the children, even if you told him to leave the classroom

00:18:03--> 00:18:05

with equal education gone there?

00:18:07--> 00:18:11

We as Muslims, taking to consideration

00:18:12--> 00:18:34

the sentiments of other people and this is why the Bible is a lesson of the Muslim woman Solomon Muslim owner. And as an ratio, you mentioned that believers are those who others are safeguarded by their tongue. And they hand the message of Allah mentioned tongue before their hand, because the tongues wound is far greater than the damage of the hands.

00:18:35--> 00:18:37

So the interior minister says

00:18:40--> 00:18:54

he says that we raided many homes. We knew were nothing to do with the stabbing just to send a message to the Muslim. This is the interior minister of France saying this.

00:18:55--> 00:19:00

That's Pamela where does it stop? My Time's up. I'm gonna finish it. Where does it stop?

00:19:01--> 00:19:08

You got to go to France to see the reality and France. Honestly, ghettoized

00:19:09--> 00:19:10

lack of education.

00:19:12--> 00:19:26

The prisons are brimming with Muslims. According to The Washington Post, and the telegraph. 70% of the prison inmates are North Africans, you have no opportunity in life.

00:19:27--> 00:19:59

And then on top of that, the final thing after all that after making them sidelining them, making them feel like fifth column as second class citizen, then you take that thing, which is the dearest to them. One person one person stabbed, maybe if you had 10, maybe we would have 20 maybe we had 50 people who are gonna commit a terrorist act there from your 6 billion you are these 20 individuals. Does it justify the government

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

projecting the images of Charlie Hebdo of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam on the buildings.

00:20:07--> 00:20:12

I would call this childish, but it's not childish. It's arrogance.

00:20:13--> 00:20:15

Its colonial hangover.

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

The truth is,

00:20:19--> 00:20:34

we need to understand, the more visible the Muslim would become, the more that you will have a group of people who will hate you. To a degree that didn't mind our parents, because our parents couldn't speak the language.

00:20:36--> 00:20:47

They didn't understand the values the culture. Now you have a group of people who are visible who are confident in their religion, in their values in their culture, who feel British.

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

So it doesn't mean

00:20:51--> 00:20:58

that the more that you live in this country, the more visible that you are, the more you will be accepted No,

00:20:59--> 00:21:23

actually possibly will be to the country. France has 6 million Muslims. And the government is sick and tired of the migrants. Well, then you should have gone and cloned Eli's the country's killed 10 million of the individual put 2 million in internment, 10 million Algerians Lj died.

00:21:24--> 00:21:29

And the French colonial law so what you what you saw

00:21:30--> 00:22:08

is what you will reap. I have a final message I'm not going to sing. Because I don't have the time though. Obviously, everybody can put your mind they need to go. But I want to just say Finally, briefly. You love the Messenger of Allah. Short term beheading people decapitating people killing people ain't gonna work. You love the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they do something positive in the name of the Messenger of Allah. Go and propagate the teaching of the message of Allah, you're all on social media, put some nice quote up or the message of Allah go outside and do so that which is more difficult. Spend your time and your effort for the love of the message of Allah pour a tree one day

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

one month in a year is not good enough.

00:22:12--> 00:22:25

Cool in kuntum, to a boon Allah, to build if you love Allah, then follow me the Messenger of Allah make the Messenger of Allah a role model and you have fulfilled the hub barakallahu li walakum wa salaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullah
