*Why Are You Ashamed?*

Watch on YouTube:

Brothers and sisters!

Why are we ashamed?

When we have the best of mankind ﷺ leading us.


As Allah ﷻ says in the Qur’an:

*يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ أَطِيعُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُواْ ٱلرَّسُولَ*

_O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger_


Meaning we follow the Deen of Allah ﷻ, and His Qur’an and we follow His Messenger in what he did, and his Sunnah ﷺ.


And when we are made aware of a Ruling which makes us sacrifice, we shouldn’t ask “Why?” Or we shouldn’t complain.

Rather we should say ;

As Allah ﷻ says in Surah An Nur

*إِنَّمَا كَانَ قَوۡلَ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ إِذَا دُعُوٓاْ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ لِيَحۡكُمَ بَيۡنَهُمۡ أَن يَقُولُواْ سَمِعۡنَا وَأَطَعۡنَاۚ وَأُوْلَٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلۡمُفۡلِحُونَ*

_The only statement of the [true] believers when they are called to Allah and His Messenger to judge between them is that they say, “We hear and we obey.” And those are the successful._



So knowing all of this, we need to realise that we must practice our religion with no compromise, regardless whether the society dislikes you or not.

They are following Shaytaan anyway! Who could be more stupid than them?

Because we all claim to Love Allah ﷻ and His Messenger ﷺ but we need to reflect on whether we love them to the extent that we have actually sacrificed in our lives for the sake of Allah ﷻ.


As Allah ﷻ says:

*قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ*

_Say “If you truly love Allah, then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your faults and Allah is forgiving and merciful._



What do we value more?

The opinion of Allah ﷻ?


The Non-Muslim giving you dirty looks across the road?


Whether Prophet ﷺ could recognise you on Qiyamah because of your Wudhu?


The Non-muslim who is laughing because he caught you with your foot in the sink?


Prophet ﷺ was sent as a guide and as an example for all mankind, yet you became ashamed of him.



Ya ibn Adam! The Sahaba strove to uphold the Sunnah because it was Sunnah even if they had to die, don’t leave it aside because the Sunnah requires extra sacrifice.


May Allah ﷻ forgive us all and keep us steadfast upon the Sunnah.
