00:01:51--> 00:02:21

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen have risen due to Allah the Lord of All the Worlds All praise is due to Allah Who has guided us to this way and we will not have been able to guide ourselves and not Allah chosen to guide us Alhamdulillah we're in the month of Ramadan hour. And as we all know, this is the month that witnessed the coming of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam into this physical world. Adam will itema 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 alayhi wa send them to reflect on his significance, to reflect on what he should mean to us. To reflect on our responsibility to our children, is said and the moon our ladder contract there Rasulullah teach your children the love of the Messenger of Allah, but as the Arab safe that they do share in their Yachty one who likes 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 cookbook, I want to mention inshallah Tana some of the things that if Allah so wills will help us to enhance our love for the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa Sedna. So the first thing is to learn of his physical beauty.

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

One of the things that generates 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 inspired 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--> 00:05:51

La Halle was inspired a greater feeling than that feeling because of his 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 many aspects of his physical being he represented the the middle course that Islam itself represents, okay, then he came to another commandment. And once of all the Taku she had their eye, the nurses were your corner Rasulullah Alikum Shahida. So we're witnesses being a moderate middle nation, and he's a witness for the people who can dedicate you and now come on mutton wax off the tail Kumu shoe had that either nice way or corner rasuluh and they come Shahida

00:05:51--> 00:06:47

then he also 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 sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, likewise, his complexion as described. So he represented that that moderation and in his totality that enhanced his beauty sallallahu alayhi wa 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

00:06:47--> 00:06:57

we begin to love the messenger of Allah Subhan Allah Allahu Allah, he was seven. 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 who's asking she's caught up in all the physicality. He doesn't have the biggest muscles he's not the tallest person is 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 Allah He I never met anyone whose character was more beautiful than this brother.

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

And our messenger salida was send he said either jaql min min total Dona de Dena, who was hookah who Femke who if one comes to you,

00:08:08--> 00:08:59

and he has good thing and good character, the marry him, the worthy marry him off to your daughter and give who 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, we 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 who said that, who its take time to rub the heads of the children who would play with Hassan Hassan Al Hussein, who would who would let the children raised to him and then both him over and he fall on the ground and the crawling all over him. SallAllahu Alia was setting them who who let a little girl

00:08:59--> 00:09:48

grab 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. Suddenly Allahu Allah who said that brother reminded me of the Messenger of Allah, that's why I'm everything. So go Lavoie today he was setting them. So character Kana Rasul Allah He so Allah Allah will send them as woodenness He was the most generous of people. So Allah why they will send them Kana Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam s John Nessie he was the most courageous of people on the dearth who name when Benny howison They met the Muslims with a shower of a hailstorm of arrows, and all of them particularly the newly converted

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

ones. After the conquest of Mecca, they turn and they fled in the face of that hailstorm of arrows the Messenger of Allah Subhan Allah who I knew was send them was it

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

Dancing with his mule. And he said and then be you like headed and up to enable Abdullah. I am the Prophet that's no lie I am the Son of the Father. And so it's only befitting of a Prophet that he will be the most courageous of people because he's the example the others have to follow some Allah who will send them

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

so we know His character engine engine, dears love for Him, we if we know his beauty, it leads to love for him, Salah Lavon he was 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 Shere Khan 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 Allah Subhan Allah, Allah will 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 years. And they're murderers, murderers sumiya what the other one, and the only hidden key you can say is someone had an answer 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 during 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--> 00:13:07

Having himself to go to present himself to the tribes to try to generate support for his mission, being humiliated in time

00:13:08--> 00:13:09

for our sake,

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

watching his beloved wife, who had given all 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 upload and watch his companions uproot and have to leave their homeland,

00:13:36--> 00:13:51

the beloved valleys, 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 the says beloved uncle assassinated then his liver guards out of his body, to see his beautiful youth that must have been the mayor,

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

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

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

and then not have anything even to cover his body. If 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. So Allah who I knew he was sending them,

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

some Lola while he was sending 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

Send Giancola some Allah who I knew 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 and our hearts will shine on after our passing will shine on through our children and to our students.

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

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

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

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

00:15:50--> 00:15:51


00:15:52--> 00:16:01

and lost humanity. Yeah, you can be in our son NACA shahidul. Want to bash your own idea

00:16:02--> 00:16:19

where they are, what he believes me he was CRR Jim who lira May Allah bless us to take from that night and to pass it on a poodle Cody head was stopped for me was only 70 movement in your comments. On.

00:16:31--> 00:16:41

Hulu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam o Allah seed University in Siena. Muhammad in Milan, he was trying to he was screaming

00:16:42--> 00:16:43

in the wall Helaman

00:16:45--> 00:17:03

who stole Lunarlon? Yeah, you handed in some new Andy he was set the Motorcity in Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Sayidina Muhammad in Ronda and he was sadly he was selling testing and Kathy

00:17:04--> 00:17:06

another thing we can mention

00:17:07--> 00:17:16

terms of our love for the messenger of allah sallallahu send them is to reflect on how deeply

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

he was pain. By any difficult that we set difficulty we suffer how Devi was paying by those from his own man who didn't respond to his call. The entire humanity after his being disputed to the prophetic office is his own land and with a dour, all of us who have responded well to each other but the wider Ummah, 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, now of course

00:17:59--> 00:18:13

sugam now, coming soon in full sequence, that there is come to you a message you're from amongst yourselves, the prophets of Allah Allah was send them and this is out of His love for us.

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

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

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


00:18:26--> 00:18:51

be on medication Nabhi and medication when beaten up then 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 why they will 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 Gibreel encouraged them to call us LF and Salah and it was send them then now be an app. Then there'll be an abdomen, there'll be an abdomen. I will be a prophet, servant, which men he had to serve his family. He 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 what's a 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 sat on the ground and he said in the end

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

he said can I get up so wherever who can yep call out 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 eats someone

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

Although it was said that, that was his humility, men and fusi come, there's come from amongst you.

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

As these are non Asian men, I look to him he's deeply grieved, and pain and trouble by any difficulty you into.

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

As he's on either him I need to hire you soon i lako he logs so deeply for your success for yourself, patient for your guidance.

00:20:35--> 00:21:04

And then something and we all long for that for our children, for our loved ones, for our friends, our relatives, were all alone for their guidance for them to come on to our 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 I knew he was sending into when No, if they turn away they'll call the husk be Allahu

00:21:05--> 00:21:24

Allah who if they turn away say Allah suffices me our relationship with Allah Tala shouldn't 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 the the closeness, the strength of our relationship with Allah I would only increase in in enhancing.

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

Because we know and and Allah had told me I Allah never breaks His promise.

00:21:43--> 00:22:22

Then till no focus has to be Allahu Allahu Allah suffices me there is no god except Him. I will not make my children a God that I worship other than Allah I will not make my parents a 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 than ALLAH that they determined was it halal and haram not Allah, that they break my heart if they deserted me abandoned be turned away from me while I still have a law

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

Husky Allahu Allah Hola. Hola. Hey, now, I know he came to Oahu or rockboard Arshi loving and he is the Lord of the Mighty Throne.

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


00:22:38--> 00:22:45
