Seems a bit weird after hearing people with so beautiful voices, that you hear somebody with me with a croaky
But so, Pamela
machine which she just recited about the love
salutation upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
in the Arabic language,
the word love is
in order you call it mohabbat most likely ripped off from the Merhaba. I mean, we are known for number two's anyway.
And it's derived from the root would have been
and the derivative and the original source have a deep relationship with each other.
See, when a farmer sews a seed,
and that seed has
the right environment, the land is fertile, there's plenty of rain rain,
this plenty of sun
then that little seed blossom loss.
And it becomes into something which is of benefit for human beings,
it becomes fruit vegetation becomes a beautiful tree which gives shade. Similarly, the derivative muhabba when you first meet somebody, and you inclined towards that person, that seed of marhaba is sown in the heart. And if that person reciprocates that love,
then that love grows in the heart. And if that person that you are loving, deserves being the object of love, then the entire heart is embellished with that love not the entire heart, but the entire limbs. All you can do is think about that person. All you can do is speak about that person, your limbs want to do things for that person.
And if you want to see an example of this, you look into the love that the Sahaba of the Lanham had for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that he reciprocated that love every Sahabi rhodiola who mentioned that when we were in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we actually felt that we were the closest person to him. This is the love that he would show. When he would shake their hand there was no man who was more busier than the profits and loss of them. But when he would shake their hands, he would not release it until they pull their hands back. When he would speak to them, he would turn totally towards them.
And this is a white man tell me he mentioned in his shamaya that a Bedouin girl, sorry, a slave girl could take the hand of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and take him to anywhere in Medina to assist the he would assist them. Why do they mention a slave girl? Because the slaves were the lowest and out of the slaves. The lows were the females
because he reciprocated that love. And this is why the Sahaba of the land of love The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but not only did he reciprocate the love, he was an object worthy of love.
He was an object worthy of love. He created love. And also he nurtured that love and laughter Be it when Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, Allah Hamza
indeed successful is that person who has purified himself one of the duties of the prophets of Allah Allah was someone was used to him to purify them. Now the word of Lucha in the Arabic English language is loosely translated as success. But if you look at the derivatives on the word Oh,
Aha, one of the words is for law, for law is a farmer. What does a farmer do? He sews a seed,
that he doesn't just sell a seed. He works on that seed. He plows the land, he harvests through blood and sweat until that little seed becomes something of great benefit to humanity. And this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did with us the harbor of the Allah I'm home, he created those who are regarded as fifth columns of humanity to being the best of creation after the MBI leaves salatu salam to walk on the face of this earth. And this is why that they love that they had for him was unparalleled with the rhodiola and it was captured by the machine. And he was brought to the outskirts of Makkah, and this is approximately where Masuda Ayesha is today. And they wanted to
kill him slowly. So they began to cut his flesh. And then they began to pace him with this suit and his face. And once he was going through this excruciating pain, abuse of Jada was not a Muslim at the time came to him. And he said, Oh, babe, don't you prefer that Muhammad was in your place, and you were in the comfort of your home. And once he was going through this pain, he said, I swear by Allah, and it's easy for me to say it and it's easy for you to listen. He said, I swear by Allah, you talking about this excruciating pain that I'm going through, said I swear by Allah. That is easier for me than a stone trick. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And the province of La Silla was sitting in with Dina while he was going on. And then Kobe asked him could he read two records and they allowed him to play through the cards. And while when he finished, he turned toward the machine. And he said, I prayed to very short records, because I didn't want you to think that I was scared of death. And then he supplicated to Allah. He said, Allah, we believe in the prophets of Allah, we believed in you, and we follow the precepts of the prophets, Allah Salam now convey my salaams to the purpose of the law, there was a lump and the brothers Allah, Selim was in Medina, and Osama bin Zayed of the land was sitting next to the
professor wasallam. And he said, all of a sudden, I saw the eyes of the professor Muslim. Well, as I say, he saw his kids begin to flow. And he said, Who babe has just sent his salaams.
But it was on this occasion, that Abu soufiane when he heard the reply,
of Kobe, that death is easier for me than a stone trick. The professor Malala was alone, that it was on this occasion that most of you and said, I've sat with the Empress of Persia, and I have sat with the emperor of Rome, and I've seen the way their followers love them. And I've seen how Muhammad's followers love him. And I swear by Allah, the followers of the Roman and the Persian Empress, don't love them, like Muhammad's followers love him. So Malala was alone.
Because he was an object worth loving.
He was an object worth loving. And this is why even animals or the virtue of the prophets, Allah Salah, and it's amazing that animals saw it, and Muslims have a problem seeing it.
Thus, once upon, upon occasion, one of the Sahaba of the alarm, they went past the tree, and it's all a mess. And they in the nest, there was a chick, and he took the chick and the mother began to fly around his head, and he captured the mother. And he came into the court of the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam, with the chicken, the mother, and he was in his sleeve. And the professor Muslim asked him, What do you have in your sleeve, and he took it out and he opened in hand. What happens when you open your hands? When you have a captured bird, it flies away. But the bird didn't fly away. Why? Because he understood that it was in a court with justice was imminent.
And it can complain to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us a hobby, go and place the bird from where you got it from. Don't place that chick from where you got it from. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam performed his hudge he sacrificed 63 camels, and this was a certain indication to the lifespan of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And then Rita mentions that the camels would be bought five after five. And he says, I swear by Allah. It was as though those camels were competing with each other, to be sacrificed on the hands of the prophets. Allah lives.
They understood the virtues of the profits and the loss of them. You could easily say, well, they were, you know, they were, they could see, they could hear. The truth is that even inanimate objects saw his virtue. When the Prophet peace be upon him came to Medina, he would give his Jiu mahatva leaning upon a tree trunk. And then a lady came to him and she said, I have a slave, who's a very good carpenter. If you wish, I will ask him to make a portrait for you. And he agreed, and, and he came the next week, and he ascended the pulpit, and his narration is tomato, meaning that many Sahaba was sitting there, and each one narrates it in his own words.
And they say when he ascended the pulpit
that the tree trunk, some reason mentioned that it began to shake like it was about to explode. As Andreessen mentioned, it was like a she camel who child had been dragged away from it. Others mentioned it was like a small child who had lost his parents, other mentioned that it was like cried and screamed like a mother like a she camel, when she's giving birth, and the Prophet peace be upon him to send it from the pulpit. And he embraced it, and the sobbing slowly stopped. And then it gave it an opportunity and a choice to be a tree in Jannah, from which the Olia and the solar ha eat from its fruits. And they chose to be a tree Jenna, and Hassan bus Lila mo law says, it says, if this is
the love, that a tree had for the Prophet, peace be upon him, then what should be the love that the believers have for the prophets of Allah, Allah? What is the love that we have? And this is why when the Prophet peace be appointed, passed away, oh, my God, Ilana would often cry.
He would cry. And he said, Why shouldn't I cry? Didn't that three cry over the departure of the purpose of the law? They said, Why shouldn't I cry as a believer?
And this is why those who love them really they will love to a different dimension. I often say no mother has loved her child like a boubakeur. Love the province someone lives alone. No child has loved his mother. No, Romeo has loved the Juliet. No Juliet has robbed her Romeo No, Majnoon has loved this Laila. No Layla has loved his Majnoon like Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu love the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And this is why
I would say who is over you've heard me say this many times, who is Omar? Omar was Muslim. He was the man that often his opinion would agree with Allah subhanho wa Taala. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that if there was a prophet to come after me, it would have been Omar.
Omar walks down one alley shaytan cannot walk down that path. He said last night I entered Jenna. And I saw this beautiful white palace. And I wanted to enter into this white palace. And I asked the angels who does this palace belong to and they said it belongs to Bob. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Omar I remembered your gala and I did not enter.
And Omar turned around to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he said O Messenger of Allah VEDA from you.
Omar would say if I could give one night of my life, and one day and one night of my life for a one day, if I could give, but actions of my entire life and the accent of my entire family for one day, and one night in the life of Abu Bakar of the Allah I knew I would you know what that one day was?
That one day was in the cave
when they migrated when Abu Bakar entered into the cave, and he wanted to clean it up and he saw a number of holes and he took off his garment and he shredded into small pieces, and he filled the holes. And then he requested the profits on the light layers of them to come in and the Prophet came inside and then he lay on the flat side. And then there was one hole which he had no Garmin left for so he stuck his foot upon it. And in that
in that hole there was a snake and a bit the foot of Abu Bakr radi Allahu, can you imagine the pain? Again, I say easy for me to say and very easy for you to listen. But can you imagine the excruciating pain and he was going through this pain and he didn't want to wake up his beloved.
Has there ever been a mother in history? You know before the advent of Huggies and Pampers when the children would wet themselves, the mothers would sleep on the wet side.
They will put the children on the dry side. But Has there ever been a mother in history? Who was bit by a snake and she did not want to wake up her child as they ever been a woman or a man, a husband or a wife, who was bitten by a snake and they didn't want to wake up there my boobs.
Never, because there has never been a person who loved another person like viola, I love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he bought love to a different dimension. And he's going through this excruciating pain. And then the tears began to flow down his cheeks and they fell on the cheek of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and then the promise a lot of them woke up. And he saw what he was going through. And he took his saliva and he placed it upon his foot, and it was as though he had never been bitten by a snake.
And you know what that night was? That night was when there was a lot epsilon passed away when everybody else crumbled, and Abu Bakar remained firm. You know why I often say that was everybody else were rejoicing Abubakar of the new what's crying, when the versus the student nurse is our Janice rule. Why? Well, first were revealed when the help of Allah will descend. And you will see people entering into the deen pour army upon army, the Sahaba were rejoicing, the health of Allah is gonna come, the conquests are gonna come. And Abu Bakar Viola was sitting in the corner crying. Why? Because he understood that the latter verses were revealed regarding the demise of the Prophet
sallallahu Sallam and he sat there crying. When the Prophet peace be upon him gave this final footbaww two days before he passed away, he felt better. And he came, and he prayed Salah behind Abu Bakar the Allahu Allahu Akbar was gonna move back and he told him remain on your place. I mean, what kind of what kind of greater honor Can you have them that the man who led the MBR in Salah, Abu Bakar had the honor of leading him in Salah. And then the province of Allah lives on him ascended the pulpit, and he gave this parable parable, this example of a man who has been given a choice of remaining in the dunya are moving on to his load, and he had chosen to move on to his load, and all
the other Sahaba thought it was just an example of parallel. But Abu Bakar understood that it was referring to the Prophet peace be upon him, and he began to cry uncontrollably. And I will say that Ilana mentioned, I saw him crying and I was thinking, why is this old man crying for? And then the problem is a lot of them saw him and he said, Oh, abubaker Calm down, calm down. And then the Prophet salaallah alayhi wasallam said so Pamela, he said, who has ever whoever has done me a favor in this dunya I have repaid the favor as for the favors of Abu Bakar. Allah will repay when the day of judgment and if I was to take anybody as a friend, I would have taken Abu Bakar as a friend, but
the Brotherhood of Islam is enough. And then he said all the doors to the machine should be closed Illa Hakata Viehbacher besides the doors Abu Bakr, radi Allahu, and the day he passed away, this was the day on one of the Alana was referring to Abubakar Viola and who came into the machine. You could imagine the state of the Sahaba the province and the lives of Sallam said, if anybody is ever afflicted with a calamity, then remember my death, because it will dwarf any other calamity. And you have to be amongst those people who live with a promise of loss have to really understand what he meant. And the landlord cried is crying. So when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed away, he came
into the machine he passed with the machine, and the blessing body was lying in the house of eyeshadow, the Lamb ha the daughter, Babu buckler, and he came into the house and you remove the sheet from the blessing face of the province of a lot less alum and he kissed him up on his forehead, and he's a tip the Hadean one may Italia Rasul Allah, he said, O Messenger of Allah, you are beautiful in life and you are as beautiful in death. And then he came out and Omar of Nakata was saying whoever says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has passed away, I will remove his head from his body. He's only going to meet Allah like Musa went to meet Allah, He will be back
and I will walk along the Allah and who said Oh, my mama, calm down, calm down, and Omar wasn't having it. And then he gave us finally
you know what kind of man aboubaker was, he wasn't a big guy.
He had a big heart.
Today we have many big guys. The big guys do it for the wrong reason. And we don't have enough people who have big enough heart for the truth. And that's the problem. We have enough sellouts. We have enough people, you know, who will go and beat up some other innocent person or somebody who's weaker than them. But will they ever do anything strong for the sake of Allah?
They won't because it because it dents they match on us. That's what it is. And the problem is I'm ally there was some spoke about the strong man said a strong man is the one who can control his anger.
You can punch out somebody lights. And you know what kind of man he was.
I shall have the alarm rate and rates. He was thin. He was so thin that he chose his will not remain around his waist, supine a lot. He was so thin that his eyes had sunk in that you could see the bones in his fingers. They would protrude because he was so thin. And when he would walk, he didn't walk with the step. He didn't walk with an attitude. He actually walked with a stoop. But they say Abu Bakar was the weakest in body. But when it came to the commands of Allah, he was the strongest.
We were the strongest. And he stood up and he gave his famous cookbook and he said man, Ghana Yabba Doo Mohammedan for in number hamedan codemark woman kana Jambo de la, la, la your moves is that whoever worship Muhammad, then let him know that he has passed and to his lords of Allah, Allah wa sallam, and whoever worship Allah, let him know Allah is alive and death has never fallen last month, Allah he's a ternal. And then he recited verses which will reveal on the Battle of all and Amara, the Allahu mentioned, then I realized that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had passed away, and my legs could no longer hold me. Now when I asked you, I asked you compare our love to the
love that these people have for the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and then we profess, you know, you look at our lives who have we made a role model. Every other Tom, Dick and Harry we made our role models, the way they tell you to behave this how we behave. We spend more time watching X Factor than reading the seal of the prophets of Allah alayhi wa sallam. They tell you, you know, wear high heels, you wear high heels, they tell you when low heeled shoe and low heel they tell you a bag as you were buddies that you were tight, you were tight. They tell you the Palestinian scarf is in fashion, and then you start wearing the Palestinians bros the cause.
They tell you, you know where your choses halfway up your backside, you wear your trousers halfway up your backside. I mean, who wants to see the color of your check anyway?
No, seriously have some self respect. The province of Allah Allah wa sallam said, When you're done, first nama [???], then you will do whatever you wish. You walk around with your jeans off with on your backside with your hair gone, but you do what they tell you to do, because knowingly or unknowingly you have made them their role models. You know how many people you see, you know, one of the greatest attributes of the prophets Allah Sallam was that he bought the oma together. He created one oma and what do we do we take the name of the profits and loss of them and we divide the oma. So we say Bro, I love the profits and loss. You know me I'm a real lover of the profits and losses.
And him over there and I'm not having a goal but really analyze yourself or analyze other people. They say, you know him over there. He don't love the visa, Wahhabi. That's what they say, You know me, you know, I'm Asha Rasulullah. When I say asik I'm not speaking by Arabic. Speaking about
us, you can Arabic and Urdu has a different meaning. To us you can assume HIV, HIV is a Wahhabi, and not Brava who you're calling a Wahhabi. He's got a beard coming down to here. He prays five times in the masjid because he says so now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's got a miswak in his top pocket because he wants to follow the Sunnah of the prophet Salah Salem and you according and Wahhabi and me the lover the Ashika soon confession time I can't wake up for for just Allah you ain't no Asha killer so you actually get bed
you are Ashika bed that's what you are. But see what could be more gross that you use the name of the greatest of creation to divide the oma
Yeah, how often you have brother saying, bro, I'm ready to die.
For the honor of the prophets of La Silla, you know ready to live like the Prophet you will die for him.
Bro, I'm ready to die for Islam. You don't ready to live for Islam and live like a Muslim and you ready to die for Islam?
Empty slogans, the Jihad of the West is not dying. It's living as Muslims. And you need to realize that don't come up with empty slogans. You look at our community, look at our communities, how different they are, how divided they are brothers, start practicing, you know, practicing for a few weeks before you're practicing you hate everybody, anybody who's practicing you hate them. soon as you stop practicing, you hate everybody who is not practicing. And anybody who doesn't pray in your Masjid.
That's the state of the oma and me and you are a reflection of that. And we need to be a bit larger, because we have little golden life and hence we hold on to petty things. So we need to make, you know, role models, the greatest of creation salaallah alayhi, wasallam.
The greatest of creation, you know, when the last month Allah speaks in the Quran, he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said,
a boon Allah sabbioni Allah say, a messenger of Allah. If you love Allah, but to be ooni, it means you can't reach. You can't really love Allah until you follow the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In the Arabic language, the word tibia is a little cough, it comes from the root for TB only. It's a little cough, it goes wherever the mother goes. And then Allah will love you in return. And this is why we need to make the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam our role model. When Allah says in the Quran, there are people who make equals unto Allah, you have Buddha Billa they love those equals to Allah, like they love Allah Subhana Allah, knowingly or unknowingly, we have
made many equal to the prophets Allah, some of them that we love equally as much. We knowingly or unknowingly when you spend hours vegetating in front of your TV sets. And that's what you aspire for. Knowingly or unknowingly, you have made those your role model when the local drug dealer is your role model, because he drives a 50 60,000 pound car, because he suck the blood of other people. And that's what you aspire to. When it comes to making
tea, they say never give the movie a pulpit, cuz he never comes off. Never give them all the doubt. Khan could you never get up?
or unknowingly, we have made other people our role model and we need to go back to making the prophets Allah Allah was a role model. You know, when you speak about generous people, what comes to your mind? You asked me, Bill Gates, he's really generous. You know, Prince has died. Or she was really generous, can their generosity compared with the generosity of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? Never so why are you making them your own models? Why even the pension, I shall have the line he mentioned that two days before the demise of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was really he was ill.
And he had only seven dinars in his possession. That's all he had. And he said to be he said, Oh, I should give those 17 hours in the path of alarm. And she says I was busy attending to him, and I didn't have time. And when he regained consciousness, he said, Oh, I should have you given those 17 hours in the path of Allah. And I said, Oh, the alarm has no message of Allah busy attending to you. And the purpose of Malala was Selim said, Oh, I shall, what will I do on the Day of Judgment, when I will stand in front of Allah, and I will have both in my possession, and I shall have the alarm have mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed away. And he did it when we didn't have even oil
to burn the lantern in the house of the greatest operation. So Malala was alone. But what law he was their house in history, which was more literal than the house of the purpose of the law. They was alone. There wasn't. When you look at macho men, and you make them your role models that were that you compare it with the province of La La was alone. The province of Los Alamos Sallam fought with people for what not to beat people up to bring him closer to Allah. In that time of the world was a Muslim. There was a man called O'Connor and ro Khanna was the
undisputed wrestler of his time in those days are more locked up and hardly been bullied were wrestlers, but nobody had ever defeated gokarna. And upon occasion he came to the province of Milan, it was a lump and he said, Oh Muhammad, if you beat me I would embrace Islam. And the verse Allah Salaam got happy. He got elated. He said, will you actually embrace Islam? If I beat you? He said, Yes. And he grabbed rock on and he floored him. hirakata had never been floored before that day. And he stood up and he gave me the usual look in you know, my foot slipped.
But Omar mentioned Look at this. The problem is Allah Saddam was ready Subhan Allah he was ready to fight with people to bring him to the HAC.
Compare that with us. Young this sick concept of macho man that we have nowadays.
He's sick concept that we have, you know, somebody who can make somebody an orphan, somebody who can push drugs, who can carry a piece. He's around one of our youngsters. Why? The reason is because we have failed to make give them alternative role models. If he had just told your child about Khalid bin will need before they slept, they would have looked up to the local drug dealer. If you have given them examples of a bulan mo Barak, they would have looked at other people. But did we do that? No. We don't have a Cinderella.
That's what we've told him about.
Andrew Carnegie stood up again. And he said give me another chance. And the province of wa sallam grabbed him. And he picked him again. And O'Connor was shocked.
That never happened to him before. And the problem is a lot of them said, Oh no, Carla, if you hang around with me, I will show you greater things than me battering you.
And O'Connor said what could be more greater than this.
And the law sort of indicated towards the tree than the tree rip through the earth and they stood in front of the province of wasallam. And they go witness that there is no God but Allah and His Messenger, and the brothers Allah tented Aparna, and he said oh can I told you hang around with me and I will show you things which are greater than me battering you.
But this was the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and examples go on. And on. We live in a shallow society, where you know, you judge people by how good looking you are. So you've got plenty of hair,
then you might become Prime Minister. That's where William Hague lost out.
Yo, yo, you're good looking. But good. Look, you know, only skin deep. But if that is, what you're looking at, then is there anybody looks you could compare with the looks of the profits or loss. Job below the line I mentioned, I saw the profits a lesson on the night of a full moon. And I looked at the face of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and I looked at the full moon. And I looked at the face of the progress of the lives. And then I looked at the full moon. Then I looked at his face again, and I looked at the full moon. He said, I swear by Allah, the face of the prophets on the light layer, with more radiant and more beautiful than the full moon. I saw the alert and I mentioned that
the women of silica had seen my Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they wouldn't have cut their fingers, they would have cut their hearts. Do you know what this story tell your children this story tonight
of silica is silica was the wife of that disease. She was an honorable woman, and she fell in love with use of La salatu salam who was a slave. And the news spread around that she was infatuated with this slave. So the other honorable women started saying, you know, how does she How did she fall in love with him? Let me put in a context that you can understand it. How did Raja sobs daughter fall in love with so and so? And I won't mention how did rajas of daughter fall in love with him? So she gathered all the women
and she gave them an apple and she said cut the apple and while they were cutting the apple she told us of lace law to slumped to walk past the province Allah Sallam said the use of a lot of slum was given half of the beauty of humanity and when he walked past this so his beauty they were so immersed in his beauty was they were cutting the apple they cut through their fingers and they did not even feel the pain eyeshadow the Allah mentions if the women of the Laker had seen my Mohamed salah and it was a long, they would have cut the hearts and felt no pain. May Allah Spano tala makers amongst those who loved the profits.
Some of them may last month Allah love make us amongst those who love people like a chef, honorable chef who's here today because well, like, you know his his recitation, revised the heart his recitation revive it touches the heart And may Allah last month Allah keep us all united in this dunya May Allah Subhana Allah not allow little issues to divide us and may last $1 you reunited in general for those salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
