The cartoon (pictures) wasn't him (peace and blessings upon him), It was him (peace and blessings upon him) being disfigured in those cartoons, it was a description of our state, (Our station).
The Saddiq is the one who displays the Sunna, internally and externally
When people saw the face of the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him), they said that this is not the face of a lair.
They didn't see him (peace and blessings upon him) they saw us and thats what they drew.
Every Muslim is a representative of Islam
Many of us don't realise what the gift of the Messenger (peace and blessings upon him)
The whole world was relieved when he came
In Sura al Noor you can see the calamaties
There is a great example of the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him)
If we are going to live as we are now, then this will lead us astray
He (peace and blessings upon him) will be at our side, if we are at his (peace and blessings upon him) side
If we refuse to follow the Sunna then we will lose
The Sunnas of the prayer will repair our fards
The Sunna will come to our aid on the day of judgement
If it weren’t for our weakness he would've made the use of Miswaq as wajib
Love for the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) is only true when it has been internalised
The world was in need of a peacemaker then (in his time (peace and blessings upon him)), the world is in need of peacemakers now, the Muslims.

The Radical Middle Way Part One
Love is difficult to fake, you can't imitate true love
If your love were sincere then you wouldn't disobey the one you love
We are given the ability to love by the one who gave us the ability to love, Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala
Grief is the absence of happiness but the absence of Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala in your life that is true grief.
Harun Rashid said on his deathbed, "Oh how we have been deceived by the world and what an awful abode."
(Don't worship for pleasure, worship for Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala, fulfil his rights)
Feel the value of your guidance
Say Subhnallah and experience the pleasure
Be grateful to Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala for all our blessings, the love of the world must leave us, we must remove it from ourselves.
We pray in order to get closer to Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala
The lost person has five traits
1. They hate death
3. They don't want to meet Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala
4. Content with being lost
5. They can't see the signs
Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala guides who he wills

We have people in this time who find the gnats wing, cherish it, put it into a glass casing and show other people, (who become jealous), then fight over the gnats wing. (This is our state.)
We are all fighting each other for the gnats wing.
