Assalāmu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullāhi Wabarakath,
Yep, you guessed it, another lecture out by my favourite Imam, Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki.
May Allah subhanna wa ta'ala give him ajar for speaking the haq and grant him Jannat Al-Firdaws. Ameen.
The Kuffar thought that my imprisoning him they would make him quiet, but Allah azza wa kal is the best of planners and he is sufficient for us. The Imam speaks out as strongly as ever. He has also graduated from the University of Jail, just like Yusuf alayhisalam did.
He speaks the truth in times where we have people who compromise their deen for the dunya including so-called Ulema who fear the Kuffar rulers more than they fear Allah azza wa jal.
The Messenger of Allah, Muhammad, sallalahu alayhi wasallam, the most beloved person to walk on this Earth, is to whom we owe our complete loyalty too.
It is part of our Emaan to love him more than our ownselves, our wealth, our lives and our children and family.
A famous phrase of the Sahaba radi allahu anhum would be, 'May my Father and Mother be sacrificed for you, Ya Rasullallah'. And they went against their Brothers, Fathers and Mothers for the sake of Allah and his Messenger.
It is our duty to defend the honour of the beloved Muhammad As-Salatu was salamu ‘alayk, and the deen that belongs to Allah subhanna wa ta'ala. Especially these days, where they mock the Messenger and use the book of Allah as 'target' practice, wal-`iyadhubillah.
But are we really defending the Prophet Muhammad sallalahu alayhi wasallam? And what are the rulings concerned those who defame, mock and insult our beloved Messenger continuously?
Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki talks about this and gives us the example of the Sahaba radi allahu anhum, and the rulings concerning those who would mock and insult the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam.
