Ustadh starts of by emphasising that obeying the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم is obeying Allah.

He uses the example of Hadeeth of Bukhari from Nafa’ from Ibn Umar from the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- who said:

خالِفُوا المُشْرِكينَ؛ وَفِّرُوا اللِّحَى، وَأَحْفُوا الشَّوَارِبَ
‘Differ from the Mushrikoon, grow the beard and trim the moustache.’
Here, Ustadh points out that here is an example of following the commandments of the prophet of Allah
صلى الله عليه و سلم, if he commands an affair then it is an obligation unless there is something to say otherwise.

Ustadh then ponders over the ayah found in Surah Nisa 4:59
“O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), and those of you (Muslims) who are in authority. (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger (SAW), if you believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination.”

Ustadh also shares an ayah from Surah Najm 53.3;
“Nor does he speak of (his own) desire.
