Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah ala alihi wa sahbihi Murena salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
Continuing with our series here in the month of Ramadan paths to peace, where we are looking at the mansion, and exploring the concept of peace and tranquility in the Quran, and reflecting on it and deriving from it on how we ourselves can attain greater tranquility and serenity, through the book of Allah subhanaw taala in this blessed month of Ramadan.
Today we're going to look at SUTA Toba surah number nine, I am number 40. Before I go into the actual Ayah However, it's important to just set the stage for exactly what the IEA is addressing and when does IO is revealed.
Desire was revealed during the ninth year of Hijra
nine years after the prophets allottee Salam are then in the ninth year of his residence in Medina, after the Hijrah.
And in the ninth year, there is a major event that takes place in the life of the Prophet sallallaahu Salam. It is known as the Expedition because wa to book the expedition to to book to book is a location far to the north of Medina. And this is the furthest distance the prophets a lot. He said I'm troubled during the prophetic period.
And there was intelligence there were reports that there was an army of at least 100,000 which was unlike anything that Arabia had seen, that was coming from the Roman Empire to basically attack the Muslims. This growing force based in Medina, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam based on the divine inspiration and guidance from Allah.
He was instructed that this cannot go unanswered. This has to be responded to with force.
And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
basically started commanding the companions and started recruiting their companions to start forming an army gathering resources and supplies and the Quran Kingdom mandating in federal HIPAA, often with a caller with Jackie do be unwelcome and physical officer Belinda, everyone has to go. Every adult able bodied, capable male
was it was mandatory for them to go and the fetal arm.
And at the same time, everyone was encouraged to give to donate to contribute as much as they could.
but at the same time, it was in the midst of a lot of difficulty. It was the summertime, it was very hot. It was nearing the time of their harvest of the dates, which was their primary form of sustenance and their primary form of business. They at the same time, were going to potentially meet an army that was going to outnumber them at the very least three to one and maybe even 10 to one.
And so the hypocrites, these were people who pretended to be Muslim because they wanted to enjoy the benefits of living in Medina, and the other communal benefits of being a Muslim. But they did not believe in Assam at all. And in fact, many of them harbored a lot of rancor and evil sentiment towards the prophets, Allah the sentiment of Muslims. So these munaf hipbone, the hypocrites. They started their own covert kind of underground campaign where they were trying to create doubt within the minds and the hearts of the believers, those who are willing to go those who are willing to sacrifice they were trying to plant the seed of doubt, Latin feel heard, don't go out into the heat.
Don't kill yourself. Don't do this. Don't do that. And they were planting all this doubt.
And in response, and it's not that the believers were shaken or they lost any of their conviction. But at the same time when someone is constantly campaigning you
and they're constantly talking to you and trying to get inside your head. Naturally, it's a little confusing.
And because of the law
little bit of that uneasiness or hesitation or reluctance that was just starting to manifest in the community. Allah subhanaw taala revealed I am number 40 In Surah, number nine.
And Allah said, in Latin sudo, who
don't help him talking about the Prophet sallallaahu Salam, you don't want to go with him. You don't want to help him. You don't want to ride with him, you're not willing to sacrifice alongside him. Then don't
forget the NESARA hula hoop.
Allah helped the prophets Allah be some in the past.
And Allah is fully capable of helping him again, and Allah will indeed help him.
And then Allah Himself gives an example of a moment from the past from the history in which Allah provided that divine help and assistance to the Prophet alayhi salam. He said, If remember, if Raja hula Dena Cafaro remember when those who disbelieved. They pushed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, out of his home and out of his city, and out of his community. This is talking about before the hijra, before the migration. When the prophets Allah, the son was in Makkah, preaching and teaching the message of Islam.
And finally, the forces that be the powers that be in operation Makkah at that time, they decided that it was time to take drastic action against the prophets a lot more drastic than they are already taken. They had exiled many Muslims, they had assaulted the prophet to lobby them on numerous occasions. They had tortured and even killed the number of Muslims. They had boycott them and tried to starve them to death. They have done all of this and they said it's time to do something more drastic, and that is to outright assassinate him.
And Allah sent Gibreel Ali salaam to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said you have to leave Makkah now.
So remember when they pushed him out?
But then Allah tell Allah says that Allah did help the prophets Allah bless him in that moment, but at the same time, Allah did not leave the prophets, Allah the Salam on his own.
The prophets Allah didn't have to do that by himself.
Then he has Nene is whom I fill her
that there was the second of the two
when they were both in the cave. So what happened was, Allah provided a miracle the prophets Allah the some slipped out of his home, undetected by the huge force that has gathered around his home. It was a miracle of the Quran and of the prophets, Allah azza wa jal allowed me to add him sit down. And the prophets Allah VSAM slips out. He goes to the home of Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Radi Allahu Anhu and Abu Bakr radi, Allahu Anhu has already made all the preparations. And then they slip out of Makkah in the middle of the night and is still of the night. And they've already identified a location they go to Jonathon, this very huge, difficult mountain to climb right outside of Mecca. And over there,
there's a small little crawlspace, a small, tiny cave
and they hide in there and they spent three days and three nights hidden inside of that cave.
And Allah says that the prophets Allah the son was not by himself. He had a companion with him. And that was overcome. Radi Allahu Anhu
in the Akula Sahibi he
and the narration
that Imam will come to be Rama Allahu Taala and others mentioned is that when they arrived at their cave, for Lama was Salah Isla levar duckula Abu Bakr Al Avara willen Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu when inside the cave first yell dummy Suma Philokalia. He scoped out that cave
for color Laguna de Sala Lisa Malika and he taught the process and we and the prophets, Allah the salam said, what's going on with you what's wrong?
He said, Until Omiya Rasul Allah,
He said, O Messenger of Allah, I would sacrifice anything for you. And he ran amok was Seabury will hawan
caves a lot of times there are harmful creatures and insects and things I got inside of these caves. Feign canopy he shaitan can be Lubbock
so if there's something harmful in here I'd rather that it attacked me or beat me but did not get to you.
What kind of feel about the hood urine for WADA or Aqua Who are they he and then there was even a bit of an opening in the cave and he plugged it in some of the narrations mentioned he like sat in front of it and blocked it with his body. The younger
To my Zero Suit Salesianum so that nothing had come out of their unharmed the prophets, Allah Islam. So, once they're in the cave, at some point during the next three days, the forces that were searching for the prophets, Allah, the Salah, and they had a bounty out on both of them 100 camels each dead or alive, which was a huge fortune at that time. And so they're searching and eventually they arrive in the area of that cave. And Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Taala on who he can hear them. And he kind of peeks down and he can kind of see them in the distance. They're standing on a bit of a different elevation so you can see their feet.
And Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Taala and who
is kind of shaking?
Because it's a scary moment. What if they find us here?
And some of the narrations mentioned that he starts to cry. He has tears streaming down his face.
And the prophets Allah Allahu Allah, who and the prophets, Allah says, Why are you crying? Why are you scared? And say the Rasul Allah if one of them just kind of like bends down and looks down, they'll see us and then they'll get to you.
They'll get to you.
And that's what I'm afraid of.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Abu Bakr Delano at that moment, he said, Latta Hassan in Allah, Allah
don't worry because Allah is with us.
And He said to Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah and who ma Vaughn Luca is Nene Allah Who Talita Houma
that what do you think can happen to two travelers? When Allah is the third companion on their journey? What can harm them?
And Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu. He's so overwhelmed. He says in Allah Allah Mahana
Allah is with us. And the prophets Allah He said now I'm for Jalla Yum, so who do more on
and then the prophets Allah the sun wiped the tears from aboubaker space that Allah is with us.
Al Hassan vasila the Allah Rama Allahu Taala great Tabby, a student of the Sahaba
who actually learned from learn the Quran from Isha sediba Radi Allahu anha.
He used to narrate this incident and when he would narrate it, he would start to cry.
Every single time he never narrated, he would cry.
And so Allah subhanaw taala protected them.
Ultimately, they were not able to locate them. And after three days, they came down from the cave. And I'm still having no respite, who was not Muslim yet he would become Muslim later, he was a guide, a master tracker and a guide. They had hired him. And then he was waiting there down at the base of the mountain for them with the camels that they were going to take on the journey. And the son of Abu Bakr radi, Allahu anhu, was visiting them throughout these three days and three nights and keeping them supplied and informed about what was going on. And when they came down to the base of the cave, the daughter of Abu Bakar SMAP interview was waiting there at debate at the base of the
mountain as well with food supplies for them. And very famously, they needed something to be able to tie it to the camel to the saddle. So she took her belt that she was wearing, and she ripped it in to and then used it to tie the food sack to the saddle that they were riding on. And the prophets Allah He said um, gave her the title of that only thing that the one who tore her belt into to for the sake of the Messenger of Allah Salado. And then they continued on their journey and they reached Medina and we know the rest of the story. But going back to the idea, that moment, Allah subhanaw taala mentions that he says Remember, in the Apollo Lisa havy, when the Prophet sallallahu sallam
said to his companion, now taxon in Allah hermana don't worry, because Allah is with us. But this is the part that I wanted to get to. For NS Allah Allah Who Sakina to who Allah He.
And Allah sent down His tranquillity upon
him, not them, him.
And the scholars that the MaHA saloon they mentioned, the him mentioned in the verse is
because the prophets Allah, He said, I'm always was in a tranquil state. But Allah sent His divine mercy, His tranquility, peace, serenity directly upon Allah kalbi have you back directly on to the heart of Abu Bakar
such a blessing such a gift, such a privilege such an honor.
What aka The Who and then Allah aidid the prophets Allah the Salam be julu delantero ha within the unseen
Armie the angels and then there are other narrations as well. There's some discussion about the authenticity. But there's other narrations as well about Allah sent certain creatures like the spider putting its web and the bird putting its nest, to deter them from searching the cave, which I can't imagine living in a comfortable sofa and Allah degraded degraded the
the the convictions of those who oppose the prophets Allah the salam, WA kalimat Allah He held earlier. And the mission and the cause of Allah will always be superior and elevated Allahu Aziz and Hakeem and Allah is all mighty and all wise. But the point that I wanted to make here from desire today is Abu Bakr Radi Allahu taala. I know. You know, one of Sofia Orianna he says something really beautiful and powerful. He says ma Sahiba Hayden, Umbria Ambia Mithra
Abu Bakr is the greatest companion of any prophet ever.
There has never been a greater companion than Abu Bakr
and Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah is saying in the Quran, Allah sent His divine peace and tranquility and serenity directly down onto the heart of Abu Bakar.
And that's why some of the narrations mentioned that that was the reason from that point on forward. Nothing could ever rattle a bucket or the Elana
he was never rattled by anything. The day the prophets a loving son passed away of course, he was sad.
But when Earth man couldn't talk, and Ali couldn't stop crying, and Omar was yelling and screaming
of Ibaka, the Alana was calm and serene.
And he ascended the member and he pulled the community together, they fed off of his calmness, his tranquility on that day.
mere weeks after the passing of the Prophet to loving someone, a bunch of the tribes around Medina, the Bedouin tribes started to plasticize leave Islam and started to talk about waging war against Medina. Everyone was nervous and rattled.
And Abu Bakr the Alana was very calm. When the alarm came to him very rattled.
Hit him on his chest, I kind of slapped him on the chest. And he said, pull yourself together.
We are upon the truth. A young person lien when a high
can the religion be lost while I'm alive?
We have a job to do, do your job.
And we'll look at it never got rattled again for the rest of his life.
Because Allah sent down that divine tranquility upon his heart.
Now let's get to the crux of the issue and that is how do we attain that kind of serenity and tranquility.
And the thing that Abubakar Alonso demonstrated here and not just him but his entire family was undying loyalty to the prophets allottees.
That kind of love and loyalty. For the prophets Allah visa is what earn them the peace and the tranquility and serenity from Allah, because he is the beloved of Allah
and Allah and whoever shows love to the Beloved of Allah, then Allah loves them as well In Kuntum, to Hebron Allah, first of your only your biblical Mala, if you claim to love Allah. Then show your loyalty to the prophets Allah He said,
follow him, adore him, admire him, know him, learn about him. Try to live your life like and Allah will love you. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us all love and loyalty for the prophets Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala descend upon us His peace and tranquility and serenity. I mean Yoruba Allah mean so hon ALLAH SubhanA Colombia.
