Illa Allah Alhamdulillah we're in a time where the month of Ramadan Oh well, is winding down.
This is the month where many people many Muslims reflect on commemorate
of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and it's fitting that we do so. Not that it is a practice of the companions
they didn't need to reflect on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not need to study his sera sallallahu alayhi wasallam because he was with them.
Why Namu and Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was a living room a living reminder to them of who he was. He was a living reminder of his greatness. He was a living embodiment of the Quran. He was a living example of the highest standards of conduct, of character of morality,
of beauty. sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Unfortunately, we don't have that honor. The other hundreds we have. We have the honor of being the brothers and sisters of the Prophet sallallahu it was said them.
He described us as His one.
And they were his Sahaba.
He described us as having the power to 50 of them because we didn't see him and we didn't witness his presence, and he wasn't there to physically and directly impact our lives. He wasn't there to look upon us one gaze from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the person he gazed upon their life was changed forever.
We don't have that opportunity. And so sometimes we struggle. Sometimes it's difficult and that's to be expected because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said it would be difficult for us to Ximen
am to some there am a suburb. At the end of the top of time there will be days that will be called the days of patience. Why? Because they will be difficult days and it will take a lot of patience to get through those days.
Well as you weren't meant
to Sunday Yama sobre. El amin roofie. Her
other soldiers well, Harvey to see her and Edina telecabine, Ireland, Germany and one holding on to their religion during those days at the end of time, will be like one holding on to a burning Ember. It will be difficult to reflect on the last time you barbecued in your backyard and you put the charcoal briquettes in a match imagine scooping a red hot one out and holding on to you wouldn't just scoop it, it will be very difficult. Well, we'll call be goofy. I lead Dini he can be the other jammer. And because it's difficult, there's a principle in our religion, an edge will be
the reward you get for an action is commensurate to the difficulty of that action, an edge will be covering the shock.
Well as you
can come seen or radula. And the reward for one who continues to practice during those days, would be like the reward of 50 men, men who are millionaire
50 of them or 50 of us on messenger of Allah, then
50 of you, the one who has those difficult days at the end of time continues to hold on to their religion continues to practice their religion will have the reward of 50 companions.
And amongst the lessons we can extract from that is the power of the presence of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
His presence was so powerful, it was easy to practice. When he was around, it was easy to find and identify the truth in the light of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam is related. When he passed away a darkness fell upon Medina because that light then made it easy was gone.
And now we're at the end of time.
So we reflect and we remember, and we try to extract lessons from his life Salalah while he was sending,
one of the things that we're taught, is that we should love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as some of the lesser
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, teach your children the love of the Prophet sallallahu it was similar. But we're in a materialistic society.
What we can see what we can immediately perceive all
it's very difficult for us to to embrace that.
Whatever whoever it might be,
because we've been conditioned
to respond to what our senses perceive,
and the physical, the lack of the physical presence of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam amongst us, renders him for many in abstraction.
So loving him, becomes challenging and difficult. How do we do that? Before we mentioned some things by way of advice in that regard. Let me let me allow me to remind you and remind myself how important it is to love the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and one of his Hadeeth
now You mean I had to come akuna
men were led by one lady, one nasty edge my then no one of you truly believes until I am more beloved to him than his father, his parents, his son, his children.
For all of humanity
so our faith is not complete. So it doesn't mean our faith is negated. But it means our faith is not complete until the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the most beloved of all people to us
the love of the Messenger of Allah is one of the keys to our obeying Him and no obedience of him is one of the keys the greatest key to Allah tala loving us.
So, the love of natural law is one of the keys power obeying Him.
So law highly within them as one of the arrow points mentioned, in terms of the relationship between love and obedience,
tassel Illa what enter prove you will have
had and will have on Philippi se, la de la Cana hook bukan saw De La, La La taco, and then we'll hit the lemon you hit booty.
Then you claim you rebel against God Almighty God against the law passing Elijah, how you manifest his love.
This is impossible. Something that goes against every rule had the more hands on thing the PSE video. If your love were true, then you would obey him nor can a hook because saw the Karnataka who barely The one who loves someone obeys. In the manga Hippo material. If you love your wife, you know disputer
says take out the garbage honey. You don't say no you take it on, retire baby.
You take out the garbage and come back and you want me to wash the dishes with
the one who knows someone obeys them. If we know the law, we obey our law.
And if we love the Messenger of Allah will we obey the messenger of Allah Salah line and said that we follow his Sunnah we actually we adhere to the law that he introduced them to the world.
Some of them are heartshare attached to the Quran that he recited and related
That's the quality of love. That's a function of love is obedience. And if we OBEY Him,
then and only then will the Lord love us. So we can skip stuff because I love Allah. Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah.
Then are you doing those things because no one
desires. unrequited love. No one wants to love
No one wants to be able to say I love so and so love so and so and they're not loved in return.

there then Allah will love you and will forgive your sins and Allah is the most forgiving the Most Merciful.

So the love of the Messenger of Allah is
critical to our use of him in his obedience is critical for Allah loving us.
And that's when we're our hearts fly beyond this world.
You're not satisfied when you you want to marry this woman, this man so bad.
And you love them so deeply. That's not satisfying your satisfy when he or she responds to you, I love you too.
That's when your heart is fulfilled.
And the love of Allah, filling our hearts is when our hearts are fulfilled. And that's when our true humanity is actualized we're being deceived. There was
A song back in the 1960s or maybe 70s. Some of you are old enough to remember not too many gray beards here.
Looking for love in all the wrong places,
people are looking for love from human beings looking for love, here and there.
We should be looking for love in our relationship with Allah subhana wa Taala because once that love is confirmed, nothing else matters. Everything else becomes irrelevant.
Look, give us tofi. In conclusion, what are some of the things we can do to make that love of the messenger below real?
As we said, a lot of people it's an abstraction. They might even say I love the Messenger of Allah, but they don't feel it in the hearts.
One of the things we can do is reflect what Gen engineers love in this world.
What is physical beauty?
They say it was love at first sight.
It was love at first sight. Some, some for some people, physical beauty is so powerful, that the hardest capture
with that happens you have to be loyal. Let me tell you a quick story. It's actually it's a religious story. Even though it may sound worldly. It's a theological story, but it might sound sort of like a loveless. And there was a man
in the day some of you know even today you go home in the winter time and it's mud. The streets are paved. It might be animals that dropping dung in the mud, seriousness washing in the marketplace in the winter time, there's mud and dung. And he sees a beautiful woman Subhan Allah, Baraka luxon Holly King, blessed it is a law that very best of those who create this, Allah like far as he yells out to, to the sister sisters.
And he gets your attention. It says please wait, wait, wait, and he slashes over to her. And he says something very consistent when it comes along, brother, sister, you're the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. It was love at first sight. He's married me You have to marry me. She says Sure. I'll marry you. About if you saw my sister, you wouldn't even look at me. Really? Where she? She said she's over there. When you turn around. She hit him and knocked him in the mud
muddied and how manure. And she looks up at him. And she says, Why did you do that sister? She said because a lover never takes his eyes off of his beloved.
Love the law.
You don't turn to the
lover never takes his eyes off of his beloved.
So physical beauty.
So we have to study this and that is the Messenger of Allah and read about his physical beauty. And how's he despite
the war on soccer had the best of all things. his motto moderation, he wasn't too tall. He wasn't too short. His hair wasn't too straight and it wasn't
too tight. It was in between sallalahu and he was
he was described as being more beautiful on as the full moon
help in the
Allah, which who to let the end comedy a little better that his face glowed like the full moon like the full moon. His face glowed like the full moon
which was the full moon. If we look at it and mesmerizes us, we stare and we stare but it does something else. The full moon is so beautiful part of this beauty is that it beautifies everything else. The silvery moon light shines on the trees and they they take on an aura that they never possessed before.
The snow when the snow falls and the full moon is glistening off of the snow we see the sparkling and the snowflakes. And we see that the still of the land and our hearts are kept
By the image, the message it's the what we see is a reflection and a manifestation of the beauty of the full moon. It's not just beautiful, in and of itself, but it beautifies others. And this was one of the power, powers of the beauty of the Messenger of Allah, his beauty beautified those who are around him, son Allah who I knew he was.
So physical beauty, it kept us apart, beautiful beauty of character, which is even more powerful than physical beauty. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his character was so beautiful, it can even be described adequately by something that is of this world. And so a lot of his wives was asked rhodiola on the character of the of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What did she say kind of cuckoo CT n, that his character was an embodiment of the Quran. What is the Quran? The Quran is the total speech of Allah Khan is beyond this world. The beauty of the prophets characters sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was beyond this world, from Allah wa and he was sent them. And that
manifested itself in all of his relationships, and his relationship with the children. If you want to know how someone's character and see how they are with children, they can give you a beautiful cook bar
and you're crying, you're in tears, and then they go and one of the children approaches them get out. I don't have time for you. Was that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would hold the children in prayer. His his grandson's will crawl on his back, he wouldn't move to they moved on. Some of
them. A little girl grabbed his hand and started pulling them through the streets of Medina, Medina, that he'd shake her hand off, you know? I got
a mother Take care. No, he went with her until she let go of his hand. sallallahu wasallam that was the beauty of the prophets, Allah send them with children with his wives is another indicator character. Someone can be beautiful with everybody.
This is the secretary of work spills coffee on him. Oh, Sally, it's okay. You know, we're Muslims. We were patient. I'll clean it up. National Law, but he goes home his wife spills coffee.
so clumsy, I should have married Ayesha. Not you.
Well, the Catholics character was consistent.
It was consistent at all times in places and all of his relationships, some Allahu alayhi wa sallam.
And we could do cut back and just speed this subject alone. But in the interest of time will mention. One of the things that endears people is good treatment of them.
Good treatment, the prophets of Allah and sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He wasn't just good in his treatment to his wives with the children, or his friends or his relatives. He was good in his treatment of his enemy sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
his treatment of his enemies with good sallallahu wasallam and is documented. He did Yeoman.
When he was molded and bloodied, and they were asking them to to pray against the Quraysh. He refused to do so. A pot of honey was stone and really cute and the imbeciles and idiots and children was set to stone him and spit on him and beat him
or send them he could have had the mountains crushed them.
But he refused to do so. This is a manifestation of His goodness to his enemies. Someone Allahu Allah who has sent them
that in a handle law and that good treatment of people, they endeared people to the Messenger of Allah
and indeed people that come to him and this is something we have done understand.
Some characters that we understand this is happening, Massoud mentioned
jubilant kulu. Unhappy man, Aston Villa. human hearts have been disposed to love those who treat them well. This was a rule the prophets Allah seldom respected to
the utmost degree,
his charity, his charity was legendary. He will give anything to anybody, the Sahaba will warn each other don't ask him, you know, he never refuses anyone, some law and he will send them
one of the poems actually too, but they're the their lines have been gathered together. He described them more across him, the audacity, Khalifa
with a poem that I say it's only fitting for a full loss on the line of a seller.
He said, our investment can be hard tell no one no.
One learn to juggle and Emmylou. He became so accustomed to open his hands to give the world he command his team to command his fingers to curl up the whole something but they wouldn't obey Him. For who, to whom with a headland can hinder the intercept, you know, when you come to him, you see a strange little like the full moon,
as if you're going to give him what you're asking for him. Can
he hinder the second Lou?

Tequila has said, you know, if he had nothing in his hand except his very soul, he would give that away at one asking something of him be mindful of Allah.
This is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that strength of character and that good, that changed the course of history.
So if we are going to be a force of good a force of morality, a force of change in our society, we have to embody something never attain the degree of the practice of law seldom, but each and every one of us has to commit ourselves to being and reflecting a small portion of that good that charity was snuck aboard hand 30 as a proof of that courage. He was the most courageous of people there are Muslims now apprehensive What if Trump wins or he loses in the militias come on? What are we going to do? You're going to be courageous like the Messenger of Allah, you continue to live your life you continue to worship Allah subhana wa tada on the girls who name when the Muslims were being assailed
