00:02:03--> 00:02:21

chosen to guide us and hamdulillah we're in the month of Ramadan I well. And as we all know, this is the month. Now witness the coming of rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam into this physical world animal animal shahada, as they say,

00:02:23--> 00:03:18

it behooves us to take this time, as we should take all the time, but especially during this time, to reflect on our Prophet sallallahu it was send them to reflect on his significance, to reflect on what he should mean to us to reflect on our responsibility to our children. It said, Andy, move our ladder Come, hug bow Rasulillah teach your children the love of the Messenger of Allah. But as the Arabs say that a blue shade in their Euro T, one who lacked something cannot extend it to someone else. If we ourselves that in the depths of our heart, a true love for the Messenger of Allah, how can we extend that to our children. So we might say we love the messenger of Allah. I love the

00:03:18--> 00:03:58

messenger of Allah. But when it comes to actualizing that love when it comes to being able to really feel that love when it comes to be able to being able to describe that love to others, we find ourselves sometimes coming up short. So in this hotbar I want to mention inshallah Tiana, some of the things that if Allah so wills will help us to enhance our love for the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the first thing is to learn of his physical beauty.

00:03:59--> 00:04:03

One of the things that generates Your love is physical beauty.

00:04:04--> 00:04:54

Some of us we met our spouses, and they asked, How did you meet? I just Oh, I looked up and there she was, it was love at first sight. Right? We say that it was love at first sight. She was so beautiful, that I just fell in love with her. But so if we don't know the physical beauty of the Messenger of Allah, the beauty that inspire many of his companions to say they never saw anyone or anything more beautiful than the Messenger of Allah, he was more beautiful. His face was more beautiful and radiant than the full moon that we saw last night, a clear cloudless night, we saw the beauty of the full moon that mesmerizes us we stand back and we stare at it and we're in awe and

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

something called comes over us that we can't really describe the messenger of allah sallallahu

00:05:00--> 00:05:53

Hollywood inspired a greater feeling than that feeling because of this physical beauty. So it is incumbent upon us to study his chameleon. What were his physical characteristics to know about his hair to know about how in many aspects of his physical being, he represented the the middle course that Islam itself represents. Okay, Daddy, can I now come on, man, what's up, ah, the Taku she had there either Nursey when you're Hoonah Rosu it come Shahida. So we're witnesses being a moderate middle nation, and he's a witness for the people who can dedicate janicoo on the 10 worst of our little Kulu to head that either nice way or corner Rasulullah Nick, I'm sure he that then he also

00:05:53--> 00:06:48

represents that moderate course, says beautiful black hair. It wasn't straight. And it wasn't totally curly. It was wavy between those two extremes, his physical stature, he was taller than the average person, but he was shorter than a tall person. So Lola who was sent them likewise his complexion as is described. So he represented that that moderation and in his totality that enhance his beauty. SallAllahu Aileen who said them, and we could go on in that regard. But we have to study that. If we don't know and can't begin to describe even to ourselves, his physical beauty, how can that be a source of love, but when we come to understand the physical beauty, then we begin to love

00:06:48--> 00:06:57

the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa says, we also one of the things that endears us is the beauty of character.

00:06:58--> 00:07:05

The beauty of beautiful character, and no one's character was more beautiful than the Messenger of Allah.

00:07:06--> 00:07:51

Some people again, let's go back to the analogy of the man and woman they meet. And someone asked the sister, you know your husband, he's not you know, this sister was asking, she's caught up in all the physicality. He doesn't have the biggest muscles. He's not the tallest person, just kind of average. Why did you marry, marry him? Because I know you got proposed to buy this brother who used to play in the NFL. And you got proposed by this brother who was on the cover of GQ magazine and this brother, why did you marry him? And the sister says, well, Llahi I never met anyone whose character was more beautiful than this brother.

00:07:54--> 00:08:04

And our messenger subtle Elijah was send he said he that Jack, men mentor donor do Dena who Wahoo Luca, whoa, fan Quixote.

00:08:06--> 00:08:07

If one comes to you,

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

and he has good thing and good character, the marry him the word he marry him off to your daughter and caribou and I never saw anyone who was more gentle. Anyone who was more honest, anyone who was more faithful, anyone who was kinder to the children would come to the masjid. I just watch how this brother interacted with the little children. It reminded me of the messenger of allah sallallahu It was said that, who its take time to rub the heads of the children who are at play with Hassan Hassan Al Hussein, who would who would let the children race to him and then bowled him over and he fall on the ground and the crawling all over him. So Allah Allah was sent them who let a little girl grab

00:09:00--> 00:09:49

his hand and run through the streets and alleys of Medina with him and he never let put his hand away until she pulled her hand away some Allahu Allah was set up that brother reminded me of the Messenger of Allah that's why I'm everything. So Allahu alayhi wa said them. So character Kana Rasul Allah He so Allah Allah will send them as woodenness us the most generous of people. So Allah why they will send them cannot assume Allah He saw the line he was sent him s John Nessie he was the most courageous of people on the earth who name when Benny Hill was in they met the Muslims with a shower of a Hellstorm of ours. And all of them particularly the newly converted ones. After the

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

conquest of Mecca, they turn and they fled in the face of that Hellstorm of arrows. The messenger of allah sallallahu ala was send them was it

00:10:00--> 00:10:11

Fancy with his mule. And he said, and then the BU that kept it and up to an abdomen, I am the profit that's no lie I am the son of Apple.

00:10:13--> 00:10:24

And so it's only befitting of a profit that he will be the most courageous of people because these easy example the others have to follow some of the law why they will send them

00:10:25--> 00:10:42

so we know His character and engine engine tears of love for Him, we if we know his beauty, at least a love for him, Salah love it will send them if we know what he sacrificed. We love people who sacrifice for us.

00:10:43--> 00:10:46

We love people sacrifice for us.

00:10:47--> 00:11:00

Go back to the married couple. It was love at first sight for him. She fell in love with his beautiful character. And now they're getting old. Not good. They're advancing in years.

00:11:02--> 00:11:13

And he starts to get thoughts. You know, my wife, it was love at first sight. But now I look at her and I don't get excited.

00:11:15--> 00:11:23

And he starts shake hands starts playing with him. And then he remembers the sacrifices that she made for him.

00:11:24--> 00:11:45

How she was there when for him when no one was there, how she held on the house and took care of the children while he worked his way through medical school, how she took a part time job to help him pay off his debts. The sacrifices that he that she made for him, we said to him himself, I will never leave this lady.

00:11:47--> 00:11:55

Because he reflects on what she means to him the sacrifices that she made so that he could be the man that he is today.

00:11:57--> 00:12:05

And when we reflect on the sacrifices that the messenger of Allaah some of the love it was send them and what he suffered for us

00:12:06--> 00:12:08

see his companions torture

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

when he's weak,

00:12:12--> 00:12:28

and has very few followers, and his enemies are torturing early. Yes. And they murderous murder sumiya Whether you're the one and only then can you can say subcon Alan Yes, sir in the morning.

00:12:30--> 00:12:32

Be patient or family of Yes.

00:12:33--> 00:12:42

Your promised abode is paradise and seeing that suffering, beloved and others torment.

00:12:44--> 00:12:55

And enduring that for our sake, sending his message his followers to have a show twice, so that this message will live on for our safety.

00:12:56--> 00:13:09

Having himself to go to present himself to the tribes to try to generate support for his mission, being humiliated and PIF for our sake.

00:13:11--> 00:13:16

Watching his beloved wife, who is given all of her wealth to support his mission,

00:13:17--> 00:13:34

passing away while the barricaded and blockaded outside of the city of Mecca, in the wilderness for our sake, having to uproot it, watch his companions uproot and have to leave their homeland,

00:13:36--> 00:13:38

the beloved valleys,

00:13:39--> 00:13:51

the dry climate, and go to have to migrate to yesterday, and suffering the swamps, from the malaria and the fevers from the mosquitoes in the swamps.

00:13:53--> 00:14:13

And the humidity, there they're not accustomed to and coming down with sickness and many of them perishing. To witness that this is beloved uncle assassinated, then his liver guards out of his body to see his beautiful you know, massage on there

00:14:15--> 00:14:24

was the one of the wealthiest, most sought after young men in Mecca the best fulfilled the best clothing to see him killed,

00:14:25--> 00:14:33

and then not have anything even to cover his body. They covered his lower extremities the upper extremities will be exposed and vice versa.

00:14:34--> 00:14:39

And he suffered that for our sake, some Allah who I knew he was send them,

00:14:40--> 00:14:46

some Allah who it was sent them. And when we reflect on that,

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

we begin to love the messenger of Allah. And when we combine the beauty, and we combine the character and we combine the sacrifices, how can we not love them?

00:15:00--> 00:15:34

Cindric allah sallallahu and he was sending me Allah Tala bless us to delve deeply into these aspects of his life, his character, his being, to take the time, so that we can love the messenger of Allah. And those who have children can convey that love to their children so that that light that was lit by his love in our hearts will shine on after our passing will shine on through our children and through our students.

00:15:35--> 00:15:39

And it will live on in the in the world and the prophetic legacy

00:15:41--> 00:15:48

that has been described as a luminous lamp will continue to shine and light the way for troubled,

00:15:50--> 00:16:17

confused and lost humanity. Yeah, you can be in our son Nick Asha, he don't want to be Shiro and Avira.

00:16:31--> 00:16:47

And heavenly Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala see the university said you dinner Mohamed in Milan he was saying he was 70 Screaming you're in the water LM and Cata Lunarlon be

00:16:49--> 00:17:06

handled handed in some blue and he was set the Motorcity in Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Sayidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi are seven testing and kathira. Another thing we can mention

00:17:08--> 00:17:16

in terms of our love for the Messenger of Allah, Allah Allah Allah send them is to reflect on how deeply

00:17:18--> 00:17:48

he was pained by any difficult that we set difficulty we suffer how Devi was pained by those from his OMA who didn't respond to his call the entire humanity after his being dis deputed to the prophetic office is his own mind on what to dour, all of us who have responded well to each other but the wider OMA the wider humanities is Uma

00:17:49--> 00:17:52

and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, concerning that.

00:17:54--> 00:17:57

concerning us, Nakata

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

Rosu

00:18:00--> 00:18:13

no la caja calm convert soon and forsaken that there is come to you a message your from amongst yourselves the Prophet SAW Allah Allah was send them and this is out of His love for us.

00:18:15--> 00:18:23

The angel is Crossfield came to him and offer them a choice and a wider Hadith we just mentioned the choice

00:18:25--> 00:18:51

FAFSA and beyond and Maddie can Nabil and Madigan when a bn update you can be a prophet King, if he chose to be a prophet King that means you will be aloof from us. We will be called on to serve Him. So Allah who it was send them who would have entourages that we would have to pass through to even reach him.

00:18:53--> 00:18:57

But he chose to be a prophet Shivan

00:18:58--> 00:19:43

and Jabril encouraged him to call us LF and some Allah Avanade was send them Ben Nebby and then the bn Abdel that be an Abdel, I will be a prophet, servant, which men had to serve his family had to be amongst his people. He had to be a reflection of them. He didn't dress to a higher standard than them. He didn't eat to a higher standard than them. Someone brought him lots of fancy loaf on a beautiful plate and a beautiful pillow to recline on. He took that loaf off the plate and he pushed the pillow away. And he said on the ground, and he said in the end.

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

He said can I get this up wherever you can yet pull up that I am a servant, a slave servant I eat as a servant eats. I sit as a servant sits and I eat as a servant each summer.

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

All I did was send them. And that was his humility, man and fusi can this come from amongst you?

00:20:09--> 00:20:20

Azizullah and he managed to he's deeply grieved, and pain and trouble by any difficulty you endure.

00:20:21--> 00:20:33

As he is on either him I need to hire you soon i laico he loves so deeply for your success for yourself patient for your guidance.

00:20:35--> 00:21:08

And then something and we all long for that for our children, for our loved ones, for our friends, our relatives, we're all longing for their guidance for them to come on to or remain on the path of guidance. But sometimes they turn away just as many amongst humanity turned away from the Messenger of Allah Subhan Allah who it was sent him into when No, if they turn away, they'll be Allahu Allah in their room. If they turn away say,

00:21:09--> 00:21:24

Allah suffices me our relationship with Allah Tala should be so strong, that even if the most beloved of people to us want to turn away from this religion as happens every day

00:21:25--> 00:21:34

it will not affect that the closeness, the strength of our relationship with Allah I would only increase it and enhance it.

00:21:36--> 00:21:42

Because we know in Allah negali for me, I Allah never breaks His promise.

00:21:43--> 00:21:46

Ventolin nor for Husby Allahu

00:21:47--> 00:22:22

Allahu Allah suffices me there is no god except Him. I will not make my children to God, that I worship other than Allah, I will not make my parents that God I will not make my relatives my neighbors, my friends, gods that our worship as opposed to Allah that I have a deeper emotional connection to then Allah that they determined was 100 Haram, not a law that they break my heart if they deserted me abandoned me turn away from me. While I still have a law

00:22:24--> 00:22:35

hospital Rahula La Ilaha illa Allah He came to Oahu a rock both are loving and he is the Lord of the Mighty Throne.

00:22:36--> 00:22:45

So Allah azza wa jal sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I don't know feeling misdemeanours Muslim at what mean in one minute
