00:00:00--> 00:00:07

Lao salatu salam ala rasulillah wa aalihi wa sahbihi commentary on the mission Isla de novo.

00:00:11--> 00:01:04

Now, as a brother mentioned, one thing that is a great tragedy of our time. And this is a tragedy that's been suffered by not just our generation, but I would venture to say maybe the two to three, maybe even four generations before us. And what that tragedy is, is that the greatest form of Allah's mercy, and the most powerful form of guidance, to ever be revealed, and to ever be descended, to ever descend upon humanity, and mankind which is the book of Allah. And then further the elaboration or the realization of the book of Allah in the lives of people, which was the unbelievable unparalleled, beautiful life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam on the CRR collection,

00:01:05--> 00:01:21

and then further the manifestation of that, in a community and in a society, which was the community in the society of the prophets, a lot of them who we refer to as the Sahaba to get on the companions roughly a lot more than one may Allah be pleased with them.

00:01:22--> 00:01:30

You know, people of such caliber, people have such devotion and dedication, that when that a law speaks about them,

00:01:32--> 00:01:36

with such reverence and with such praise Rasulullah

00:01:41--> 00:01:43

sallallahu loca and

00:01:44--> 00:01:49

Yerba Buena phenomena, wanna see emails from people to him.

00:01:50--> 00:01:51

recommend that

00:01:54--> 00:02:11

Allah speaks about the praising these people, that Muhammad the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and those people who have believed with him right alongside with him. They're riding all the waves in the currents, they're weathering the storms, right by his side.

00:02:14--> 00:02:18

It's in the it's in the present tense form.

00:02:19--> 00:02:21

Meaning anytime you look at them,

00:02:22--> 00:02:44

it doesn't matter when it doesn't matter what the situation is, what the circumstances are, what's going on at that time, good times or bad times. stomachs are full, or they're starving, they're suffering from starvation. They have peace and safety and tranquility, or they're currently under attack, it doesn't matter what the situation is, anytime you look at these people, Luca and sujeto,

00:02:46--> 00:02:58

rukon citizen and these are the hyperbolic forms of the word. They are committed. Anytime you look at them and find them doing the record and doing so do living a life of devotion and dedication to Allah.

00:03:00--> 00:03:08

Yokohama phenomena, what is what do they seek phenomena humans want, they just want the blessing of a lot. And they want his pleasure.

00:03:10--> 00:03:21

You know, with all the, you know, the second lecture after me when Norman will speak, he's going to be addressing certain if we talk about unity and different things.

00:03:22--> 00:03:24

And kind of as a prelude to that.

00:03:26--> 00:03:37

You know, when a lot of issues arise, and we have discussions amongst each other, and we focus on our differences and our ideologies and differences of opinion, and we rip and we tear each other apart.

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

You know, sometimes it's just a matter of

00:03:41--> 00:03:43

going back to the basics,

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

taking a step back,

00:03:46--> 00:03:54

and taking a look at the bigger picture and realizing what's important at the end of the day. What is the purpose of my existence, and it's captured in this

00:03:56--> 00:03:56

body.

00:03:58--> 00:03:59

I just want to play

00:04:01--> 00:04:04

a good friend of mine, he always says I just want to go to the gym.

00:04:06--> 00:04:06

That's it.

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

I just want to please a lot.

00:04:10--> 00:04:11

That's what the Sahaba were.

00:04:13--> 00:04:13

So

00:04:14--> 00:04:21

last, hello, Java, gave us a poor arm, give us the beautiful, unparalleled example of Muhammad Yunus who was

00:04:22--> 00:04:25

blessed this oma with a first generation

00:04:26--> 00:04:33

that lifted and proved it to be a practical way of life, and the best way to live one's life.

00:04:34--> 00:04:41

Now, going back to what I was saying, is the tragedy. The tragedy is that these beautiful resources,

00:04:42--> 00:04:46

this amazing realization, this roadmap

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

on how to live our lives, how to run our homes, how to build a family, how to establish community, how do we exist in this world? This this amazing detailed roadmap

00:05:01--> 00:05:02

It's been,

00:05:03--> 00:05:05

we've been out of touch with it now for so long.

00:05:06--> 00:05:11

It almost like the brother said, he touched on something really important, it almost seems irrelevant to us.

00:05:12--> 00:05:23

Like we know it's very special. We know there's some aura about it. There's some reference about it is very holy and very sacred. But it doesn't talk to me.

00:05:24--> 00:05:28

It doesn't communicate to me. It doesn't have anything to do with

00:05:29--> 00:05:36

the CEO or the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He's amazing, illustrious individuals and Society of the Sahaba.

00:05:37--> 00:05:43

It's like a fairy tale, a long, long time ago, in a faraway land. This

00:05:45--> 00:05:51

is no different than any other fairy tale that we hear, or that we read or not be listened to.

00:05:52--> 00:05:56

But the reality of the matter is, the Quran is about as relevant as

00:05:58--> 00:06:13

the Quran speaks to each and every single community. The Quran speaks with each and every single family and home. And the addresses every individual in their specific instances, conditions, situations and circumstances.

00:06:15--> 00:06:18

It's talking to you and it's talking to me at all times.

00:06:19--> 00:06:24

The Prophet alayhi salatu salam is the most relevant role model

00:06:26--> 00:06:34

at all times for all people in all places. That community of the Sahaba is a source of inspiration for us even now, here today.

00:06:37--> 00:07:13

What we have to do is, we have to realize its relevance, we have to realize its application, we have to realize its depth and its beauty, and its profundity and its meaning. And that's what we're here to try to just get a glimpse of it here today. And in sha Allah, for a lot of people, this is one stop on their journey of realizing this. Realizing the Koran and applying it to one's life, the life of the messenger, somebody said I'm signing it as a source of inspiration, and living our lives based on that. So for some people, they've already set out on this journey in some capacity. And this is one of their many stops. And

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

for a lot of people, though, this might be the beginning of the journey.

00:07:18--> 00:07:41

And while we won't be able to provide you with a lot here tonight, we'll at least touch on a few things show how the army is talking to you talking to me, to all of us. And it's just a matter of us listening to a little bit closer, looking a little bit deeper. And we'll realize how relevant or untrue he is and how important it is to me living my life.

00:07:43--> 00:08:06

I wanted to inshallah address or talk about rather briefly and kind of do a little bit of focus in the beginning, but then do a little bit of a run through of certain passages, or rather a chunk of a major passage from pseudo to the column. This is in the 29th Jews. This is Surah number 68. Within the Quran,

00:08:08--> 00:08:27

pseudo column is a very interesting surah. And I feel it's really relevant to us today. And we need to talk about this and understand this message today. Because this is from the early period of Revelation. In the opinion of some of the scholars, this might have been the third or fourth revelation upon the prophets a lot easier.

00:08:28--> 00:08:55

So if we draw a quick little sequence of events, basically the prophets a lot of them goes to the cable, he's in the cave of it all. And there he received the first revelation, changing his life in the course of humanity for all of eternity for all the time to come. The probably the greatest event to ever occur in the history of humanity. That's number one. When the prophets alarmism comes home, overwhelmed, overcome,

00:08:56--> 00:08:59

confused, and very, very

00:09:00--> 00:09:03

just just shaken with what he's experienced.

00:09:05--> 00:09:10

And he asks his family his wife Khadija or the alarm on her Cover me up wrapped me up in a show.

00:09:12--> 00:09:22

Allah subhanaw taala addresses him again, yeah, you had with death boom for and the Baraka Kappa Kappa, tells him to stand up. warn the people

00:09:23--> 00:09:26

proclaimed the greatness only of your master your Lord.

00:09:28--> 00:09:32

Allah subhanho wa Taala and further equips him

00:09:33--> 00:09:39

that when you do go out there and you preach to people, people will be difficult. They'll be rude.

00:09:40--> 00:09:56

They'll be mean. They'll say ugly things. They'll accuse you they'll slander you. How do you find the strength to deal with such negativity? Your negativity affects us very, very powerfully. It's really hard to deal with negativity.

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

If you know somebody you have a friend or a relative who's coming

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

To the negative, it's hard to be around that person.

00:10:04--> 00:10:14

So how do you deal with negativity? So it was our job to further equip them with tools? Yeah, when resentment como la de la palina mismo en Kuzmin poco de la Rosa de la

00:10:16--> 00:10:21

tierra in National League opponents of the law, in energy as a lady here I shot the water

00:10:23--> 00:10:25

in Melaka in a hurry santolina

00:10:26--> 00:10:34

He told them to stand up in the night, pray in front of Allah, seek strength from Allah, find comfort in a law.

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

I talked about it earlier in the hood. But today when we stand in a lie, when we pray,

00:10:41--> 00:10:51

we we see strength, confidence, peace, tranquility from Allah, we dialogue with discourse, we engage in a direct conversation with Allah.

00:10:52--> 00:10:59

The comfort and the peace that you find there is unlike anything else, when we truly realize what we're doing, and how powerful it is.

00:11:00--> 00:11:11

So now that the Prophet salesianum is out there, preaching to these people, praying to Allah, finding that strength every night to go out, wake up the next morning, go out there and preach again.

00:11:13--> 00:11:16

But now the prophets alyssum situation is very, very difficult.

00:11:17--> 00:11:22

Because he's preaching to this group of people, this society, this community,

00:11:23--> 00:11:26

that first of all, is not interested in what he has to offer.

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

So look, we're doing perfectly okay.

00:11:31--> 00:11:32

We are the Quraysh.

00:11:33--> 00:11:34

The most powerful tribe,

00:11:36--> 00:11:40

we are in Mecca, which is an epicenter.

00:11:42--> 00:11:44

We are the caretakers of the huddle,

00:11:45--> 00:11:49

which is just about as big of a social status as you can imagine.

00:11:50--> 00:12:03

All right. And we're wealthy, we're powerful people are afraid of us. Nobody messes with us. We conduct trade, we do business, culturally, we're rich, we really don't need what you have to offer.

00:12:05--> 00:12:21

I don't see what the problem is this problem that you're crying about this problem that you are screaming at the top of your lungs about this thing that you are appealing to us in regards to we don't see what this problem. So the arrogance, and the lack of they just don't feel the need for and

00:12:22--> 00:12:28

so that's the first problem. Secondly, when they do research when the profits or losses persists,

00:12:29--> 00:12:34

and he continues with his mission, and he continues to preach the truth to humanity,

00:12:35--> 00:12:37

and show people what life is really supposed to be about.

00:12:39--> 00:12:41

They respond with not just negativity now.

00:12:42--> 00:12:53

But they are aggressive in their response. They curse, they slander, they accuse, they backbite they cause trouble, they instigate fights.

00:12:55--> 00:13:06

And they cause a lot of issues and a lot of problems. They make his life difficult. The believers are people who are willing to believe in Him and follow Him. They make they make their lives impossible.

00:13:07--> 00:13:13

Now, how do you deal with these people? How do you respond to this type of behavior. That was the second issue at hand.

00:13:15--> 00:13:21

The third issue, and the third problem that the prophets a lot ism is dealing with at this point in time,

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

is that

00:13:24--> 00:13:28

at the same time, these people have made themselves completely oblivious.

00:13:30--> 00:13:39

They fooled themselves, they have fooled themselves, they're living a lie. While they say we don't need anything, we're doing perfectly okay. Socially, their entire environment is corrupt.

00:13:40--> 00:13:44

The poor continue to get poor, the weak are preyed on

00:13:46--> 00:13:53

the destitute, the needy, the orphans, the widows, these people have no rights and are not taken care of in any way, shape, or form.

00:13:54--> 00:14:02

There is literally like a caste system. There are levels of society, the elite are the elite.

00:14:03--> 00:14:10

And the low, remain the low, there is no recourse. There's no way for them to pull themselves out of the gutter.

00:14:11--> 00:14:18

And so socially, the entire environment is corrupt. But they just don't see this. And this causes the process and pain

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

causes extreme pain

00:14:22--> 00:14:28

because he's of a different ilk. He's kept from a different cloth. He's a different type of person.

00:14:30--> 00:14:33

The fourth issue in the fourth problem here

00:14:35--> 00:14:52

is the simple fact that while these people, they don't feel the need for this, they're aggressive and negative in their response. But at the same time, their society their their entire social order is completely corrupt and out of sync.

00:14:53--> 00:14:58

But the last thing the final thing, that is an issue and that's a problem over here

00:14:59--> 00:14:59

is that

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

Despite all of these situations,

00:15:03--> 00:15:05

despite all of this that's going on.

00:15:06--> 00:15:10

At the same time, Allah subhanaw taala is telling the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

These people I know they're unresponsive.

00:15:16--> 00:15:17

And I know these people are being difficult,

00:15:18--> 00:15:21

but that just means you have to work harder to reach out to these people.

00:15:22--> 00:16:08

You have to work harder to talk to these people. You have to find a way to get through to these people. In surah t a scene, which is later revelation, Allah subhanaw taala act very explicitly say to us in the Foreign Legion, Tierra del mousseline Allah Salatu must have been 10 00 him. So Allah tells the process and most definitely you are a messenger of Allah, you're from amongst the messengers in the kilometer mousseline Allah salata, Mr. De pon the straight path, then de la Caesar, right. And this book is for this tool of dour that you have this has been revealed. This is being revealed from Aziz Ibrahim from himself. Why me to the Roman era

00:16:10--> 00:16:11

so that you can wake up,

00:16:13--> 00:16:28

you can wake up these people, mountain, they're about their forefathers had been woken up, you deliver the message to a group of people whose forefathers never received the message for whom coffee alone. That's why you find these people completely lost.

00:16:29--> 00:16:34

So Allah subhanaw taala, is trying to process of the sympathy to empathize with these people.

00:16:35--> 00:16:43

Realize that these people and their parents and their grandparents and their great grandparents, and even generations before that, never got the message.

00:16:46--> 00:17:04

So that's why you find these people so hard to reach, so difficult to talk to, you just have to work harder, you have to be that much more amazing. You have to be that much kinder, and forgiving, and soft and gentle and forgiving, and merciful, and compassionate.

00:17:06--> 00:17:09

So based on all of this a las panatela addresses the profits a lot is

00:17:11--> 00:17:14

known, well tell me why am I assume

00:17:15--> 00:17:28

this is of course, the sutra begins in a very powerful way. This is the first instance of this type of revelation upon the prophets, a lot of the stuff where you have these letters that certain suitors began with the meaning of which is not known to us.

00:17:29--> 00:17:54

But these are part of the literary Marvel and miracle of the Quran. Because these are the same letters by means of which the entire language, by the way, the language that these people were the masters of the pride, the identity of these people was their language, and the mastery of their language. So that same language, the letters that constructed the language that they thought they were not just familiar with, but they had mastered.

00:17:55--> 00:17:59

Now, these letters are being recited in such a way that these people have never even heard it used like this before.

00:18:00--> 00:18:20

It's like, while I'm talking to you like this, you don't even realize that what I'm talking what I'm saying right now is constructed of the letters. It's just second nature, right? But while I'm talking, this microphone keeps giving me trouble. Alright, while I'm talking, if all of a sudden, while speaking like this, generally, I said, Ah,

00:18:23--> 00:18:25

now I have everybody's attention.

00:18:27--> 00:18:28

What What happened?

00:18:29--> 00:18:32

Even that brother that's been texting on his cell phone,

00:18:33--> 00:18:33

I see.

00:18:36--> 00:18:37

So

00:18:38--> 00:18:39

it gets your attention.

00:18:41--> 00:18:47

So the prophets, a lot of them goes in public stands amongst the people.

00:18:48--> 00:18:50

Now this language that they have the mastery of

00:18:51--> 00:18:53

that their identity is built upon.

00:18:56--> 00:18:57

In the process of some says no.

00:19:01--> 00:19:02

Pin drops is just like this right?

00:19:04--> 00:19:04

And they're listening.

00:19:06--> 00:19:09

And then the process goes on resigning, well follow me

00:19:11--> 00:19:12

by the pen.

00:19:14--> 00:19:19

And the pen we know is a symbol. It's symbolic of knowledge.

00:19:21--> 00:19:28

of understanding, enlightenment. Well, Ptolemy warm is to rune and whatever they write,

00:19:29--> 00:19:33

meaning whatever humanity has written, and will continue to write.

00:19:35--> 00:19:45

That human history that's been recorded is going on right now and will be recorded in the future. Everything that will transpire with mankind will follow me on I assume,

00:19:47--> 00:19:58

and the deeds of people. Whatever they've done in the past, whatever they're doing right now or whatever they will do, the angels get on and catchy been. They're writing. They're writing away relentlessly, tirelessly.

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

intervening material become imaginal. Allah swears by such powerful things.

00:20:07--> 00:20:13

But the human ability to learn knowledge, enlightenment, understanding

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

human history itself.

00:20:17--> 00:20:29

And what will transpire in the future less swears by these things, takes an oath by these things, and then says what? You know, the more stronger the more powerful, the greater of an oath that you take.

00:20:30--> 00:20:38

What you follow that up with better? I mean, you're about to say something extremely of great importance, right? It's a symbol, it's a sign.

00:20:40--> 00:20:48

When shavon, when he told when he addressed the law, and said for the exotic, swore by the power of a law.

00:20:49--> 00:21:01

I mean, what he's about to say right now is about to be a huge statement, load. Marine, I will leave each and every single one of these human beings a straight associate.

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

So whenever you take an oath,

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

the greater the oath,

00:21:08--> 00:21:25

the more profound of an oath that you take. That's just a sign that of what's about to come is about to be a huge revelation, a huge statement is on its way. And what does the last panel tell us after taking such an amazing, great, profound old man to be near material because imagine

00:21:27--> 00:21:28

you are not.

00:21:29--> 00:21:35

No matter what people say, no matter what these people will think, no matter what will happen later on.

00:21:37--> 00:21:45

Beneath material by means of the blessing of your Lord, You are not insane. You are not crazy, you haven't lost your mind. You're not possessed

00:21:46--> 00:21:50

that this blessing of Allah, this Koran, this revelation, this, this deem

00:21:52--> 00:21:55

this number one, this did not make you crazy.

00:21:56--> 00:22:04

Because yesterday, this was the man who was a solid color mean, this was the man that everybody loved. Everybody liked everybody trusted.

00:22:05--> 00:22:07

Fathers would tell their sons be like him.

00:22:10--> 00:22:26

And today, everything changed. Now he's crazy. He's a liar. He's greedy. He's a magician. He's been possessed, he's lost his mind. He's causing trouble. He's causing problems described and make you crazy.

00:22:27--> 00:22:28

You're okay.

00:22:30--> 00:22:37

And the second thing is, it is the blessing of your Lord, that You won't go crazy either. Because what these people are about to do to you.

00:22:39--> 00:22:57

If you think this initial rejection is hard, oh, Mohammed somalisa. What these people are about to say to you, and what they're about to do with you. If it was not for the blessing of your Lord, Your Lord did not strengthen you. He did not protect you. You would have lost your mind. Any other human being would have gone crazy.

00:22:58--> 00:23:01

I mean, the prophets, a lot of them and what he endured,

00:23:02--> 00:23:10

what he went through, for the sake of His Deen, this is extremely important for us to understand today. Because we as Muslims,

00:23:12--> 00:23:25

here and now today are going through some difficulty. You know, with the recent, I was asked just earlier today, when I was picked up for the Friday hook by by a brother. First question he asked me.

00:23:26--> 00:23:30

So the TSA get kind of friendly with you.

00:23:31--> 00:23:32

First question, yes.

00:23:34--> 00:23:35

It's in the news.

00:23:36--> 00:23:44

Everyone's talking about it. Everyone's listening to it. I won't lie. I'm, I'm very nervous about the next time I fly with my family.

00:23:46--> 00:23:51

And my wife has to go through security or think twice about planning that trip.

00:23:53--> 00:23:55

So we're dealing with some difficulty.

00:23:57--> 00:24:02

But what's really important for us right now is to look back at Muhammad Rasul Allah somalisa.

00:24:03--> 00:24:04

What did he go through?

00:24:06--> 00:24:11

By his own testimony? He says, Look, I do have to feel like Mr. Lamb you have

00:24:12--> 00:24:18

I have been threatened for the sake of a lot like nobody else will offer the UI to phila email and

00:24:20--> 00:24:27

I have been tortured for the sake of Allah like nobody else will attach Allah tala Unum in vain yo Meanwhile, Laila.

00:24:28--> 00:24:51

30 consecutive days and nights past family will be done yakou covered in llama. llama up to Bella. And myself in Bilaal between the two of us. We had nothing to eat. That was sufficient for a living breathing human being except a little bit of food that belonged would hide in his clothes. He will take some dates and you would literally stash them in his clothing.

00:24:53--> 00:24:58

Because of the profits, a lot of them saw their beloved had a few days, what would you do with it? You'd give it away to somebody else.

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

he'd help somebody else.

00:25:02--> 00:25:04

That's a difficulty to profits allottee someone do it

00:25:05--> 00:25:07

for the sake of the because of this Dean

00:25:09--> 00:25:11

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:25:12--> 00:25:22

one time his daughter Fatima, for the Allahu Allah. She came to visit her father, the Prophet sallallahu sallam. She had baked some fresh bread.

00:25:24--> 00:25:33

She had baked some fresh bread. When she arrived when she came to process him saw this fresh bread could smell it. So what is this apartment, what's the special occasion?

00:25:34--> 00:25:36

fresh bread equal the special occasion.

00:25:38--> 00:25:44

She said no special occasion. I just baked some fresh bread and I thought of you I wanted to share it with you.

00:25:45--> 00:25:49

So the profits along some said Bismillah a byte of the bread

00:25:50--> 00:26:04

seller hamdulillah thank Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then said one less enough CB Edie, I swear by the one who holds my life in his hands. I swear by Allah Fatima has overlooked Armand akula, who Abu Salah says

00:26:06--> 00:26:09

this is the first morsel of food Your father has eaten after three days.

00:26:11--> 00:26:17

This is the difficulty he endured. This is the sacrifice he made for truth,

00:26:18--> 00:26:25

to live a life of devotion and dedication and to share this life of devotion, dedication, with all of humanity.

00:26:26--> 00:26:29

And the incidents in the stories go on and on.

00:26:31--> 00:26:36

Such inspirational figures we are families today. We say brothers, we're a family.

00:26:38--> 00:26:40

My wife and my children.

00:26:42--> 00:26:45

Why do they have to do this just because they're Muslims.

00:26:47--> 00:26:58

And many of us have stopped. We become weak in our convictions of being Muslim, of living a life as Muslims because of the difficulty that we're enduring.

00:26:59--> 00:27:13

That Okay, if being a Muslim and calling myself a Muslim and living my life as a Muslim, means that I have to put up with this nonsense. Then you know, I'm not sure pass by myself. I toughed it out, my family I can't see my kids go through difficult.

00:27:14--> 00:27:18

Again, we're not alone in this struggle. We have families

00:27:19--> 00:27:21

that went through so much more.

00:27:22--> 00:27:31

So much more why what I stated in the beginning, just to please Allah, they just wanted to go to agenda. They just wanted to make Allah happy, make Allah pleased with them.

00:27:32--> 00:27:33

And look at what they can do.

00:27:34--> 00:27:35

The family of yes is

00:27:37--> 00:27:42

a Father Yes, and his wife sumiya, a mother and their son.

00:27:44--> 00:27:45

They accept Islam.

00:27:46--> 00:27:53

live a life of devotion and dedication. They're captured, tied up to be made an example of

00:27:56--> 00:28:00

to be made an example of they would be tied up to poles

00:28:02--> 00:28:07

and left, tied up to pause in the middle of the city in the middle of the town and be left there for days on end.

00:28:08--> 00:28:10

sweltering away in the heat.

00:28:12--> 00:28:21

People walking by and hitting them, throwing rocks at them, cursing them, spitting on them, degrading them humiliated because they call themselves Muslims.

00:28:24--> 00:28:28

The prophets, a lot of them would walk by it, incapable of helping them

00:28:31--> 00:28:42

and you would walk by with tears in his eyes crying and you would say to them sobre la Asad sobre. Have patience of MDR acid have patience, Allah will make a way for you.

00:28:44--> 00:28:48

Eventually, the mother is brutally murdered

00:28:49--> 00:28:57

in broad daylight in cold blood in front of her own husband and her own son. Why cuz she calls herself a Muslim.

00:28:58--> 00:29:00

But the lesson in it for us is

00:29:02--> 00:29:03

she didn't give up.

00:29:05--> 00:29:08

She believed she was a Muslim, and she stuck to her values.

00:29:10--> 00:29:14

The Father Yes, after torture and seeing this happen, he eventually died.

00:29:15--> 00:29:21

Now here's the son. Now imagine this young man and what he's been through

00:29:22--> 00:29:29

and how broken anybody else would have been inside after enduring through all of this, seeing his own parents killed and tortured before his very eyes.

00:29:31--> 00:29:33

He escaped. He gets away.

00:29:36--> 00:29:52

The first opportunity he gets in a suburb outside of Medina when the prophets Allah ism is leaving Mecca migrating to Medina. He stops over in fulva. The first opportunity Amar gets what's the first thing he does with his newfound freedom?

00:29:54--> 00:29:57

With this new life that he's supposed to be building, he builds a machine

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

bare hands, Brick by Brick by Brick builds a must.

00:30:06--> 00:30:22

Because maybe more than anybody else, he understood how important that was. He had no family anymore. He had no home, nowhere to go to. And he knew this is someplace where I can feel comfortable. I can find peace and tranquility.

00:30:24--> 00:30:26

I can find a sense of self here.

00:30:28--> 00:30:29

I am somebody here.

00:30:31--> 00:30:32

He builds a must.

00:30:33--> 00:30:35

When the prophets allottee some enters into

00:30:36--> 00:30:56

all of the Muslims of football, all of the Muslims of Medina have gathered together to welcome the Prophet sallallahu sallam. bombi rasulillah the welcoming the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam the Prophet of Allah salatu salam is looking out at the crowd. He sees Amara amongst the crowd and he begins to welcome Mr. Mohammed everyone's welcoming him he's welcoming.

00:31:00--> 00:31:07

When the profits a lot he's him after staying there for a few days goes into Medina. And what's the very first thing the prophets a lot of them didn't Medina everybody.

00:31:08--> 00:31:09

The Masjid

00:31:11--> 00:31:35

he lived in somebody else's house has a guest for six months, yet his family with him. When we decide to move to a new place, the first thing we do is look for a place to live and apartment to house. He stayed as a guest in someone's house with his own family for six months. But the day he arrived, he said we'll build a machine right here. The next day, they woke up early in the morning and the first thing they did started building a machine with their bare hands.

00:31:37--> 00:31:38

Because that's important.

00:31:39--> 00:31:51

That's where we find ourselves. That's where we take back Baraka and blessings to our home. That this is where we get the Buttercup and take it back to our homes. This is where we find community

00:31:53--> 00:31:57

where we find strength and conviction and devotion and dedication.

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

So they start building the machine.

00:32:01--> 00:32:18

So everybody's carrying raw, everyone's carrying a rock or a brick in line in succession. They're all carrying one break the process and stops. He stops him. Everyone's carrying one rock I'm carrying two rocks. He's carrying two bricks across other substances Take it easy.

00:32:19--> 00:32:20

Take it easy, it

00:32:21--> 00:32:24

takes one of the rocks puts it down he says relax. It's okay much it'll get built.

00:32:26--> 00:32:39

And his entire face in here everything he was covered in dust. So excited, so enthusiastic. The process of stops in and brushes the dust out of his hair and wipes his face clean with his own hands.

00:32:40--> 00:32:42

So much love and affection for him.

00:32:44--> 00:32:51

So this is the sacrifice the difficulty, people before us endured,

00:32:52--> 00:32:55

what they went through because they call themselves Muslims.

00:32:57--> 00:33:10

So getting back to the passage, which leads us right to the next thing we're in Allah Allah Allah VEDA mamnoon in the third eye, Allah subhanaw taala says what and most definitely exclusively reserved for you is as an innovator among

00:33:12--> 00:33:30

is a reward that will never discontinue is a reward that will never stop meaning this reward, you will not only be rewarded and rewarded and blessed for what you're doing here in this life in this world, you will find peace, you will find tranquility, you will find happiness and contentment and confidence and self esteem

00:33:31--> 00:34:02

higher than ever. But even in the life of the Hereafter, you will continue to reap the rewards and the benefits and the blessing of what you're doing right now. What you're enduring right now. And in this is a very subtle constellation to the prophets a lot easier to remember these are the early days of Makkah. Few Muslims, a handful of people, mostly week, slaves, destitute, an extremely small minority, severely tortured and oppressed.

00:34:04--> 00:34:10

And so when you when a person would look at a situation, you'd say, Man, is this really worth the trouble?

00:34:11--> 00:34:14

I mean, is this I was from a noble family,

00:34:16--> 00:34:19

married, married to a very noble, respectable woman.

00:34:21--> 00:34:27

I was a role model in this community in society. I was on my way to becoming a chief of the tribe.

00:34:29--> 00:34:30

And all of that is gone.

00:34:32--> 00:34:35

And I'm not just a nobody anymore, but I am public enemy number one now.

00:34:37--> 00:34:42

Is it worth the trouble? Allah is telling him, you keep doing what you're doing.

00:34:43--> 00:34:45

Because this life will end one day.

00:34:46--> 00:34:48

And the difficulty you're going through will finish one day.

00:34:50--> 00:34:56

And the situations and the circumstances will change one day, but your reward that you're getting because of what you're going through will never end

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

you these difficulties

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

of yours will turn into gardens of Jenga.

00:35:05--> 00:35:06

rivers flowing from beneath them

00:35:08--> 00:35:27

we makin very acid what an Hiram 11 millimeter on water that will never stench milk that will never go sour well and how to make somebody that loves that initially be rivers of pure wine of Jenna, one Halloween assalamu Safa and rivers of pure honey of Jenna Don't be trees

00:35:28--> 00:35:30

in these gardens of Jana

00:35:31--> 00:35:38

that the hadith of Bokhari the prophets Allah tells us loja sila rocky Wolf, he literally had me as I realized

00:35:39--> 00:35:47

that if a person riding a horse was to ride his horse for 100 years, he would not be able to cross the shadow that this tree will cast.

00:35:49--> 00:36:00

They will be laden with fruits so accessible, so available to the people of Ghana, that in the Quran, there's a beautiful Ayah it's literally like two words.

00:36:02--> 00:36:05

But just you need your imagination to translate it.

00:36:06--> 00:36:10

And that is Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so to hapa he says poo

00:36:12--> 00:36:14

poo hadden Danya.

00:36:15--> 00:36:19

A person in general will be lying in his garden in general.

00:36:21--> 00:36:28

And you'll be lying there under the shade of a tree, the likes of which I just described in his garden agenda,

00:36:30--> 00:36:31

enjoying himself relaxing.

00:36:32--> 00:36:35

And while he's laying there, relaxing and enjoying himself.

00:36:37--> 00:36:42

You look up at the tree, and you'll see juicy ripe fruit hanging from the tree.

00:36:43--> 00:36:49

And when he looks up at this fruit, he'll say You know what? You just think to himself, I feel like eating that.

00:36:51--> 00:36:52

Nom nom.

00:36:56--> 00:36:57

I feel like eating that.

00:36:58--> 00:37:32

The second the moment that thought crosses his mind that I feel like eating that the bunches of fruit that's hanging from the tree. Literally, that person will not be inconvenienced alone will not inconvenience that person agenda to the extent where even he has to even sit up where he has to reach up to grab some of this room. The tree will literally bend over the bunch of fruit will lower all the way down to his mouth while he's still lying there. He will take a bite from the fruit and when he feels like he's done eating the fruit, then the tree will move right back up and he'll go back to his children.

00:37:38--> 00:37:39

This is what's waiting.

00:37:41--> 00:37:42

This is what's waiting.

00:37:44--> 00:37:46

We're in Allah Allah Allah Rama Rama No.

00:37:48--> 00:37:50

We're in Nicola Allah Kudo finagling.

00:37:53--> 00:37:53

But here's the key.

00:37:55--> 00:37:56

Here's the key.

00:37:59--> 00:38:01

We're in the kilala Philippine army.

00:38:02--> 00:38:05

Allah subhanaw taala says, most definitely you

00:38:06--> 00:38:11

Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam la la.

00:38:13--> 00:38:18

Love, emphasis upon emphasis, like grammatically speaking,

00:38:20--> 00:38:29

most definitely, certainly, no doubt. emphasis upon emphasis here grammatically speaking, what in what in Nicola I love,

00:38:31--> 00:38:33

you most definitely are upon

00:38:34--> 00:38:36

a very great

00:38:37--> 00:38:39

character, conduct.

00:38:40--> 00:39:07

You live your life based on Allah means like based on that your entire life, your the way you conduct yourself, the way you handle yourself, the way you respond to these people, everything your entire existence is based upon this extremely great, amazing mode of conduct, character, temperament, morals and ethics, which are unmatched.

00:39:08--> 00:39:10

And that was a secret right there.

00:39:12--> 00:39:13

Because you and I know

00:39:14--> 00:39:16

that down the road.

00:39:17--> 00:39:23

These people who so vehemently opposed him, and tortured him

00:39:24--> 00:39:26

and tried to kill him and assassinate him

00:39:28--> 00:39:35

that they remain opposition or didn't many of them. In fact, majority of them end up accepting the message. They accepted the message.

00:39:37--> 00:39:41

The most vicious of his enemies, Abu sufian hindi,

00:39:43--> 00:39:46

hindi, the wife of Abu sufian, the daughter of Raja

00:39:48--> 00:39:55

Rama, the son of Abu jihad, Holly Dooley, the architect of the turn of events on the day of

00:39:56--> 00:39:58

some of the most vicious and ferocious of his enemies

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

Ended up accepting a song

00:40:03--> 00:40:09

ended up saying the amazing beautiful words of a shadow Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Mohammed Abu.

00:40:10--> 00:40:12

They feel proud to call themselves Muslims.

00:40:13--> 00:40:28

How do you turn the hearts of people that hate you so much? How do you change the mind of somebody who has made his life goal to torture you and to oppose you and to make your life miserable? How do you turn that person?

00:40:29--> 00:40:46

Well, at least they will have said it when I say because you don't respond to their negativity with negativity. You don't respond to their evil with evil, you don't respond their aggression with aggression. you respond to it with kindness and humility and forgiveness and generosity and kindness.

00:40:47--> 00:40:50

When the prophets a lot, he some 20 years later,

00:40:51--> 00:40:57

when he had the upper hand, on the day of the conquest of Mecca, Mecca, when he's standing there,

00:40:58--> 00:41:18

in front of all of the people of Mecca, and by their paint by their faces, you can literally pick out those criminals. You did this and you did that and you did this and you did that. He can see them standing right before them and they're all pleading and crying. Have mercy on us. What are you going to do with us today?

00:41:19--> 00:41:34

And they're all scared, fearing for their lives. The prophets a lot of some issues his decision by saying I'm just going to say to you would you say to his brothers laka three Valley common young I have no beef with you people today.

00:41:37--> 00:41:43

I have no grudge I have no score to settle with you people today. Yellowfin Allahu Allahu Allah will forgive you.

00:41:45--> 00:41:48

You have to you have to reconcile with Allah not with me.

00:41:49--> 00:41:55

What will happen having Rahimi and He is the Most Merciful of all those capable of showing mercy.

00:41:56--> 00:41:58

Meaning your chances are very good.

00:42:01--> 00:42:05

If forgiveness is what you're looking for, you got nothing to worry about.

00:42:07--> 00:42:13

Because he is by far the most merciful being you will ever come across. Just go and reconcile with him.

00:42:14--> 00:42:15

We're in Nikola Tesla.

00:42:18--> 00:42:27

Why, through all this difficulty, why is such great promise rewarded to promise to them? Why is such great reward promise to the profit to the profits along the center?

00:42:29--> 00:42:43

Once again, because look how endearing his action are in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala look at beloved he is to Allah. Because at the end of the day, human beings, all human beings are the creation of Allah, and he loves his creation.

00:42:44--> 00:42:46

So even though they're being negative,

00:42:48--> 00:43:01

and they're being aggressive, and oppressive with the profits, a lot of them when he responds with kindness and goodness and generosity, he wins greater favor in the eyes of Allah. And that's why you hear these great rewards what a JSON.

00:43:03--> 00:43:06

This is the key This is the linchpin, this is the secret.

00:43:08--> 00:43:11

This is what we are in need of Today, more than anything else,

00:43:13--> 00:43:20

more than anything else, to remind ourselves of what changes what turns the hearts.

00:43:21--> 00:43:30

What changes minds. So I was quoting that ayah from Surah, Allah, Allah subhanaw taala says, well at this, so we'll have to do well, let's say he either found,

00:43:31--> 00:43:33

it found literally means to repel.

00:43:34--> 00:43:35

It's a defensive word.

00:43:37--> 00:43:59

When you're being attacked, the instinct is to repel the attack, defend yourself. So Allah says, Do defend yourself. But how do you defend yourself in the ability to defend yourself in that way that is better in the way that is more excellent, with goodness and kindness and generosity, and forgiveness and compassion and empathy?

00:44:01--> 00:44:02

What will happen for

00:44:04--> 00:44:05

this work either

00:44:07--> 00:44:19

this is to show that all of a sudden, it basically means all of a sudden, instantaneously overnight for either the vena cava Vina who Adama that between you and between him,

00:44:20--> 00:44:36

this person is enemy of yours, there was severe animosity, there was hatred for each other. Now who What do you mean? It will be as if this person has become your most loyal and beloved friend, your most hated enemy will become your most loyal friend.

00:44:37--> 00:44:49

That was probably one of the greatest aspects to the personality of the prophets a lot ism. He had the ability to take his greatest enemies and turn them into his most loyal friends and followers.

00:44:51--> 00:44:56

By finally quoting a few couplets mentioned by Hassan,

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

Hassan, Hassan of new Sabbath rhodiola and

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

A Companion of the process I mean a great poet, a reputable poet of his time.

00:45:05--> 00:45:08

He said a few couplets in praise of the Prophet system. They're very fitting over here.

00:45:10--> 00:45:13

And he tells the Prophet he says to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:45:14--> 00:45:20

Mara Asad aminta. mera mera hai arts and

00:45:23--> 00:45:24

he says

00:46:02--> 00:46:10

moly, I've been to an Acapulco check him out. And he goes on to say it is as if you've been created without any faults or shortcomings.

00:46:12--> 00:46:20

and lack of fully automatic, it's as if Allah created you however you want it. It's almost as if Allah asked you how you want it to be.

00:46:21--> 00:46:35

You filled out a request for him, I would like to be like this. And that's how Allah created you. That's who the prophets allow the service. That's who we associate ourselves with somebody who was so magnificent. Somebody who was so amazing.

00:46:36--> 00:46:40

All we are asked to do today is to take this product.

00:46:41--> 00:46:46

These were just a few IIII shared with you just a force for if students of color.

00:46:49--> 00:46:56

Take this, because at the end of the surah Allah subhanaw taala tells the prophets a lot. He says, when you're calculating

00:46:57--> 00:47:05

that these people who disbelieve who reject your message, they usually punakha beside him, they wish that they could, they could they could

00:47:06--> 00:47:13

literally kill you. They wish they could just just by staring at you. You know, when you stare at somebody with so much hatred.

00:47:15--> 00:47:37

You just give them the thing tidy, you know, just stare at them like there's nothing more disgusting you've seen in their life. You wish you could just kill them just by looking at them. They usually pull up outside they want to make you slip and fall just by looking at you. It's an expression in Arabic it's a verbal idiom means they just they look at you with so much hatred. They hate you with all their hearts.

00:47:38--> 00:47:56

They use the punakha bsrem Lemma semiotic, when they hear the reminder when they hear the Koran we are alone and they say they respond by saying in a hula Majnoon that he has lost his mind he's crazy. But Allah subhanaw taala says well, ma Hua Illa de Kooning.

00:47:58--> 00:48:30

But this reminder that you are reciting to them that you are presenting to them that you are explaining to them that you are calling them to, this is nothing but the Kulin Island, this is a reminder for all humanity, no matter where or when they ever exist, wherever people will live, whenever they will exist, this will be the ultimate source of reminder for them. This will solve all of their problems, this will teach them how to live the best way.

00:48:31--> 00:48:41

So Allah subhanaw taala tells the prophets Allah in the beginning, you reassured him, you haven't lost your mind. Don't worry. Now he's telling them, it's telling him at the end of the surah

00:48:42--> 00:48:56

after everything has transpired, after he's been equipped with this truth, he's being told you know what the time is about to come, when these people will stare at you, and they literally try to kill you with their eyes. They'll hate you.

00:48:57--> 00:49:29

When they hear you reciting the Quran. And they'll say he's lost his mind. They will say that about you. But realize that this Koran that you call them to that you recite to them, this is the ultimate truth and the ultimate reminder. So the prophets, Allah Islam is being told the sign of, of the simple fact that you are right, and what your what you are doing is correct. And you need to stay committed to your message is what you present to these people is the truth is the ultimate truth. It changes their lives.

00:49:31--> 00:49:51

It opens reality on them. So if this is right, what you have to share with people is correct. How could you be crazy? You obviously are correct. And what we need to understand is if this person is what we claim to believe in, and Mohammed Rasulullah Salam is the one we claim to follow, then we can never be wrong.

00:49:53--> 00:50:00

What we believe in what we our lives are based on is true and it is correct. And when

00:50:00--> 00:50:21

We need to have that confidence and all we need to do in order to realize that confidence and then need to in order to realize a better life is recommit ourselves to the Quran the ultimate reminder and find inspiration within the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that's been said and heard just from a Lafayette or somebody
