1 ITA AT: TO OBEY HIM WITHOUT QUESTION جل جلالهAllah sent the Anbiya to be obeyed. This makes logical sense because this is the first principle of change, that the change must be implemented for people to feel its benefit. جل جلالهAllah said about this: و م ا أ ر س ل ن ا م ن ر س ول إ ال ل ي ط اع ب ذ ن ا ه لل و ل و أ ن م إ ذ ظ ل م وا أ نف س ه م ج آؤ وك ف اس ت غ ف ر وا ا ه لل و اس ت غ ف ر ل م الر س ول ل و ج د وا ا ه لل ت و ا ا ب ر ح ي ا ما Nisa 4: 64. We sent no Messenger, but to be obeyed by Allah's Leave. If they (hypocrites), when they had been unjust to themselves, had come to you (ﷺMuhammad ) and begged Allah's Forgiveness, and the Messenger had begged forgiveness for them: indeed, they would have found Allah All-Forgiving (One Who accepts repentance), Most Merciful. That is why Abu Huraira reported that ﷺRasoolullah said, Everyone from my nation will enter Jannah except those who refuse. They said, Ya,ﷺRasoolullah who will refuse? ﷺRasoolullah said, Whoever obeys me enters Jannah and whoever disobeys me has refused. Sahih al-bukhari 6851 Grade: Sahih May جل جلالهAllah grant us the Tawfeeq not to refuse to enter Jannah. I remind myself and you that the most common reason we refuse to obey ﷺRasoolullah is because of our slavery to our desires, our Nafs. Let us ask ourselves if that is worth the price we will ﷺRasoolullah have to pay. Is whatever we want to do which is against the order of and will can result in our being listed among those who refused to enter Jannah, worth that price? Do we really want to live our lives pretending that we are Muslims or as real Muslims? Real Muslims obey جل جلالهAllah and His.ﷺMessenger Pretenders obey their desires and Shaytaan and don t care about the price because they don t believe in جل جلالهAllah or the Aakhira. Let us ask where we stand and change before it is too late. 1

2 جل جلالهAllah made it a condition of Imaan that we should accept every decree of Rasoolullah without question and said that if we did not do so we would be out of Islam: ف ال و ر به ك ال ي ؤ م ن ون ح ت ي هك م وك ف يم ا ش ج ر ب ي ن ه م ث ال ي د وا ف أ نف س ه م ح ر ا جا ه م ا ق ض ي ت و ي س له م وا ت س ل ي ا ما An-Nisa 4:65 But no, by your Rabb, they can have no Faith, until they make you (O Muhammad) judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept (them) with full submission. و م ا ك ان ل م ؤ م ن و ال م ؤ م ن ة إ ذ ا ق ض ى ا لل و ر س ول ه أ م ا را أ ن ي ك ون ل م ا ل ي ة م ن أ م ر ه م و م ن ي ع ص ا لل و ر س ول ه ف ق د ض ل ض ال اال م ب يناا Al-Ahzaab 33:36 It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error. إ ن ا ك ان ق و ل ال م ؤ م ن ني إ ذ ا د ع وا إ ل ا لل و ر س ول ه ل ي ح ك م ب ي ن ه م أ ن ي ق ول وا س ع ن ا و أ ط ع ن ا و أ و ل ئ ك ه م ال م ف ل ح ون An-Nur 24:51 All that the believers say, when they are called to Allah and His Messenger that he may judge between them, is that they say, We hear, and we obey: it is these who are successful. ي أ ي ه ا ال ذ ين آم ن وا اس ت ج يب وا لل ه و ل لر س ول إ ذ ا د ع اك م ل م ا ي ي يك م 2

3 Al-Anfaal 8:24 O you who believe! Answer Allah (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger when he (SAW) calls you to that which will give you life, TO OBEY RASOOLULLAH IS TO OBEY ALLAH و م ا ي نط ق ع ن ا ل و ى إ ن ه و إ ال و ح ي ي وح ى An-Najm 53:3-4 It is nothing but a revelation revealed (to him) And he (the Prophet) does not speak out of his own desire. م ن ي ط ع الر س ول ف ق د أ ط اع ا ه لل و م ن ت و ل ف م ا أ ر س ل ن اك ع ل ي ه م ح ف يظاا An-Nisa 4:80 And whoever obeys the Messenger, thereby obeys Allah. And as for those who turn away We have not sent you as a guardian over them ح ه ل ق ل أ ط يع وا ا لل و أ ط يع وا الر س ول ف إ ن ت و ل وا ف إ ن ا ع ل ي ه م ا و ع ل ي ك م م ا ح ه ل ت م و إ ن ت ط يع وه ت ت د وا و م ا ع ل ى الر س ول إ ال ال ب ال غ ال م ب ني An-Nur 24:54 Say: "Obey Allah and obey the Messenger, but if you turn away, he (Messenger Muhammad) is only responsible for the duty placed on him (i.e. to convey Allah's Message) and you for that placed on you. If you obey him, you shall 3

4 be on the right guidance. The Messenger's duty is only to convey (the message) in a clear way (i.e. to preach in a plain way) ي و م ئ ذ ي و د ال ذ ين ك ف ر وا و ع ص و ا الر س ول ل و ت س و ى ب م األ ر ض و ال ي ك ت م ون ا ه لل ح د يثا ا An-Nisa 4:42 On that day those who disbelieved and disobeyed the Messenger (Muhammad) will wish that they were buried in the earth, but they will never be able to hide a single fact from Allah. إ ن ا ال م ؤ م ن ون ال ذ ين آم ن وا ب لل و ر س ول ه ث ل ي ر ت ب وا و ج اه د وا ب م و ا ل م و أ نف س ه م ف س ب يل ا لل أ و ل ئ ك ه م الص اد ق ون Al-Hujuraat 49:15 Only those are the believers who have believed in Allah and His Messenger, and afterward doubt not but strive with their wealth and their lives for the Cause of Allah. Those! They are the truthful. There is no Ayah in the entire Book where the obedience of جل جلالهAllah has been mentioned alone with no reference to the Obedience of the. ﷺMessenger This is because it is impossible to obey Allah without obeying Rasoolullah. On the contrary, the Qur an did not deem it sufficient to refer to the obedience of جل جلالهAllah without referring to the obedience of the, ﷺMessenger to remove even the remotest excuse for ignoring the obedience of the prophet and to leave no doubt whatsoever in the fact that the obedience of جل جلالهAllah is not complete unless the obedience of Rasoolullah is fully observed with all its implications. 4

And how excellent these companions are! CONSEQUENCES OF DISOBEDIENCE و م ن ي ع ص ا ه لل و ر س ول ه و ي ت ع د ح د ود ه ي د خ ل ه ن ا را خ ال ادا ف يه ا و ل ه ع ذ اب م ه ني An-Nisa 4:14 And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger and transgresses His limits, he shall admit him to Fire where he shall remain forever, and he shall have a disgraceful torment. 5
