from the lower salatu salam ala rasulillah.

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

In the previous session,

00:00:26--> 00:00:51

we were talking about the pre the last two sessions, actually, we were talking in detail about pre Islamic Arabian society. So what were some of the conditions that were present at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his birth? And so therefore, what were some of the circumstances that he was dealing with? What were some of the challenges that he faced, and it also allows us to further appreciate the work that he was able to do?

00:00:53--> 00:01:41

Last time, in talking about pre Islamic Arab society, we specifically talked about the religious condition, the spiritual state of pre Islamic Society at that time. What I wanted to talk about today's a bit of an extension of that, but nevertheless, it's also I feel like an independent topic and subject. What I first wanted to lead off with what I wanted to start off with was a narration that talks about what was a specific dynamic, it mentions a very specific dynamic of that spiritual state of the people before Islam in that region and at that time, and I didn't get to this last time but I wanted to start off with this. abou Raja Allah tala de Remo, rhodiola more Anu he says bother

00:01:41--> 00:01:52

una fin je Leah de la alumna Jean Hedren Gemma Anna just what I mean to Robin, would you not be shot for her labneh Holly from moto snobby, he says that

00:01:53--> 00:02:33

before Islam good enough is jeconiah in the days in the time on the era of ignorance isn't a legit hydron if we could not find a an idol. If we couldn't find an actual structured idle a constructive idle to worship Gemma Anna, just what I mean to Robin, what we would do is we would get together a bunch of dirt, we would literally go out into the field like just imagine stepping out here. And we gathered together all the dirt and all the little stones and little things that we could find the debris just lying around, we would just gather a bunch of dirt together. And we would just kind of build it into a little bit of a mound, would you not be shocked. And then we'd find the nearest goat

00:02:33--> 00:02:58

that we could find. And we would milk the goat on top of that little mound that we had built for 11 hours a day, we milk the goat right on top of that little dirt mound from latos Navy. And then what we would do is then we'd start doing tow off of it, we literally start doing tow off of it. That tells you two things. And I wanted to talk about this because we need to understand this. The first thing it tells you the obvious thing that it tells you is how

00:03:00--> 00:03:48

bad the spiritual state of the people was at that time. How badly deteriorated their spiritual condition was before Islam, that they had reached a point in time, in a place where their spiritual fulfillment was literally in this in this form, they would they would spiritually fulfilled themselves by just gathering a bunch of dirt together milking a goat on it, and then start doing so often worshipping this dirt with goat's milk on it. Like just think of that. So that's the obvious observation, that that's how bad and how deteriorated their situation was. Having said that, at the same time, that tells us something, if we look a little bit deeper, if we're willing to look past

00:03:48--> 00:04:00

the surface, that tells you something else. That's very interesting. And so what he's describing here is the predicament of the common person, the common person. And so what that tells you is something very interesting. See,

00:04:01--> 00:04:15

a real the real challenge. And the worst situation possible for a person to be spiritually in is when a person absolutely has no concern, no motivation, no inclination towards any type of spirituality at all.

00:04:17--> 00:04:59

You have said when somebody is so far and distant from any type of, of emaan, where they don't even feel the need to pray to anything to seek help from anything that a person becomes the human being become so arrogant, where it's like forget about what they worship and how they worship. He doesn't even feel the need to worship. He doesn't feel the need to worship. All right. That's the worst possible condition for a human being. What we're seeing in the common people of that time is yes, this is it's it's very sad. They're stating their condition that they would worship a bunch of dirt and they would milk goat on top of dirt and he would worship it. That's really really sad. But you

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

know

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

But that still shows you at the end of the day, it shows you that these people were still desperate. They were desperate, they were looking for something. Now the problem is, is that they didn't know exactly what they were looking for. They didn't know how to look for it, they didn't know where to access it. But it does not change the fact that they were still somehow some ways spiritually motivated, spiritually connected. That that that's something that you have to learn, you have to observe that you have to make note of that, because that plays a major role in the message in the Tao of the prophets a lot. And that's why the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam in the initial stages

00:05:37--> 00:06:15

of his preaching in his message, who were the vast majority of people that were coming forth, were the people that were accepting Islam and latching on to the message that the prophets a lot of them brought, it was the lower part of society. The lower part of society like like Musa like excuse me, new Haile Salam was told in the Quran by his people what tabernacle or The Loon. What toboggan, or The Loon these very lonely people follow you, you know and even the operation made a demand to the prophets a lot. He said them at one time, they said, you're out for us all the time. You want us to listen to you, you want us to believe in you. You want us to get on board with you. Listen, the very

00:06:15--> 00:07:00

first issue we got is that you surrounded yourself with people that aren't that appealing socially. And so it does not be fit us as leaders of our tribe and the wealthiest and most powerful men in Arabia. It is not be fit as it's not suitable. It's not suitable for us to associate with these people. And at that time, what did Allah subhanaw taala tell the prophets a lot a Salaam in the Quran was big enough circumambulating the ruler above and below that when you read una vida illustrata Totem, tie yourself down. Literally tie yourself down to these people who do what they remember Allah subhanaw taala morning and evening. All right, you know what all they want out of

00:07:00--> 00:07:34

this life is to please Allah will not die do I NACA on home, don't let your eyes be distracted from these people. Meaning don't overlook these people don't look beyond these people. You know, I always say you look right through somebody, like man, I walked up there and he just it's like he like looked right through me. It's like I was invisible. He didn't even see me. Right? That's an expression in Arabic. What I do I knock on him. Don't let your eyes like avert these people. Meaning don't overlook the don't look straight through these people. Don't treat them like they're invisible. Don't do that. Well, how do I Nakano to read to see nothing here to do. Why? Because if

00:07:34--> 00:07:49

you do that, then that means the only thing you're interested in is the vanity is the adornment is the the superficial material nature of this world. That's what you're interested in, if you are willing to overlook people of the caliber of Bilal and hubub.

00:07:50--> 00:07:56

Alright, so don't overlook the doozy. Nothing had to do with it. I'm an alpha knuckle Baba and the kena whatever.

00:07:58--> 00:08:02

Allah subhanaw taala says, do not follow these people will add to them and

00:08:04--> 00:08:41

what to reducing that and hire to do that. Then Allah subhanaw taala tells them don't follow these people whose hearts are devoid of the remembrance of Allah. And what did they do? They follow their own desires, what can I move forward, and everything that they're doing is in vain. So this is a very interesting dynamic. And I wanted to specifically mention this and talk about this, that you have to appreciate the fact that yes, these people, their condition was very bad. And these people were very, very lost, no doubt about the fact that they were very, very lost. But it does not change the fact that these people were still looking for an answer. You know, and even in our society

00:08:41--> 00:09:21

today, in our day, our efforts, in our day, our efforts, you'll find that the people who are looking for some type of an answer the people who bounced from church to church, the people who bounced from cult, the cult, religion to religion, those are the people who often come and end up accepting Islam. But the people who conduct themselves who live their lives with this arrogance of I have no need of this spiritual attachment. I have no need to try to attach myself emotionally to a higher being. And they say things like religion is for the weak minded, organized religion is for weak minded people, those types of people, they are more often than not, they're not very receptive to

00:09:21--> 00:09:56

our dogma. And forget about our though there could be a lot of shortcomings in us we might not be doing our job right. Even when those type of people read the Koran. What do they come up with? They come up with objections, they come up with errors that they find him to put on, but when somebody is on the search for truth, and that person reads the code and his life is instantly changed. That guy can't sleep at night. You know, and ask him Xia ask anyone that's in this line of work and they'll tell you that we get we get calls at two and two in the morning. We'll get emails and if you look at the time of the email that email be time stamped at 3am

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

will get messaged online like in the middle of the night.

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

And what is somebody saying somebody is somebody messaging us in the middle of night? 2am 3am? What are they saying? saying, I read the Koran. I need to talk to somebody now.

00:10:11--> 00:10:46

When can I come and accept Islam, I was visiting a community as a guest speaker one time in the Midwest region, I believe it was somewhere in Kansas. And it's very small community, small Masjid. And literally, somebody calls one of the community members whose phone number was listed inside of the mustard on the bulletin board. So this gentleman must have come some random time during the middle of the day. It's a very small mustard, small community, nobody's there. It's not like this people walking in and out all day long. So he just picked up the first number that he's on the bulletin board, one of the board members. He calls him up late at night, like at midnight, and says

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

I want to come and except to some right now.

00:10:49--> 00:11:23

And it's like, well, nobody's there right now, when's the first chance I can get to come and except to Sam. So they said, Okay, we're going to be praying the morning prayer at 6am. I was there as a guest speaker. So I was going for so often fudging and going to give a thought that afterwards is this gentleman, this guy shows up 6am in the morning, to a machine why I need to accept a song. So you have to appreciate that fact that this was that condition where they felt the need for spirituality, where they would worship dirt, if that's all they could find. If the only thing they could figure out was to worship a rock, they were doing it? Yes, very bad, very reprehensible, not

00:11:23--> 00:12:03

acceptable. But at the same time, appreciate the fact that these people are still searching for the truth. And that's exactly what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam did, when he when he started preaching to them. So having said that, we talked a lot in detail about the spiritual condition and the spiritual state of pre Islamic Arab society. What I wanted to talk about today was a very specific dynamic that was existent at that time. And it was a very, very, extremely small minority to the point where it's not even you couldn't even classify it as a group or a demographic, it was literally individuals. And that was, was the true form of religion, the worship of one a lot of

00:12:03--> 00:12:42

their worship a wonderla. Was that completely lost? Was that completely lost at that time? for the masses? Generally speaking, yes. But there were individuals who helped who held on to a dino Hanif. All right, the true being the middle of Ibrahim, the path of Ibrahim, the religion of Ibrahim, the faith of Ibrahim, they held on to that there were a few people, and they were literally known as alpha and alpha. They were known as an alpha, which is a plural of the word Hanif and even the word Hanif is a very interesting word in the Arabic language, there is oftentimes when you read translations, you'll find it's a very difficult word people have a lot of difficulty translating

00:12:42--> 00:13:21

this word. And that's why when you read different or on translations, you'll literally find like six different translations of the word. So what does the word mean? The best way to understand the meaning of this word is when you look at some of the root of the word and especially some of the derivatives of the word. How was this word used by pre Islamic Arabs? Way, way back in the day, the ancient Arabs, how did they use this word? So the ancient Arabs, they would say and if our original if they will say Roger long enough, which means you you know what pigeon toed means pigeon toed, pigeon toed is when you don't normally when people walk their feet point outwards. pigeon toed means

00:13:21--> 00:13:57

that when somebody walks their feet point slightly inwards, alright, it's not like a physical deformity, but it's kind of awkward looking, right? It's a very distinct way of walking. So that means pigeon toed. But what I want you to picture is somebody whose feet are very severely turned in, not just simply pigeon toed, all right, but severely turned in to the point where it's like a birth defect, like almost like a physical disability, when a child is born, feet are completely curved, or turned in, almost like clogged in, alright. And that's something that occasionally happens with children, especially these days, they have a lot of ways that they can repair that and

00:13:57--> 00:14:27

make that better, through different, you know, shoes and surgery later on, and things like that. But nevertheless, in olden times before they came up with a lot of these corrective procedures, it was very, it wasn't very common, but you would see it every now and then you would see somebody with their feet very, very much turned in. So Roger would refer to that person whose feet were turned in. Why because when somebody normally walks their feet pointed outwards, right and left, right and left. But when this man walks, his feet point in which direction

00:14:29--> 00:15:00

towards the center towards the middle, so Rajan and I have literally meant this. The man who walked constantly walks towards the middle, the man who constantly centers, he walks towards the middle, he stays centered, because his feet don't point outwards, they point inwards. So he walks towards the center so they've gone Rajan and similarly even in classic and modern Arabic, the word for a faucet. The word for a faucet or a water tap is Hanafi. hanafy means water tap or water.

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

faucet. All right, the reason for that again is because imagine you have a tank of water like you see here right outside of the image of the of the huge water tank that says city of Irving on the real big right? So you have these huge water tanks. Alright, so size of this room. All right, but imagine you have only one faucet or one tap on the outside of it. What does that faucet or that tab do to all of this water contained in this big ol container? What does it do? It? streamlines it, it focuses it. That's why the closest that we can get to the the understanding of the word and Eve is that it means focused, someone who is focused, someone who is constantly focused, doesn't look right

00:15:41--> 00:15:56

doesn't look left. And that's why in this application of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam that is actually one of the other at least if it is one of the openings applications within the prayer within the slot in the widget to what he led for us Mr. Watson somato

00:15:57--> 00:16:31

honey fun Hannifin, that I have turned myself completely wholeheartedly. I've dedicated and devoted myself completely to the one who originated the heavens and the earth brought the heavens and the earth into existence from nothingness, honey fun and I am focused, I am centered I will not be distracted, I will stay focused on Allah. Alright, so that's what Hanif means. So the there were a few very, very literally like a dozen or so individuals in pre Islamic Arabian society at the time of the birth of the province of some who were known as

00:16:32--> 00:17:10

the Quran refers to them as an Hernan found the provinces and called them and we even have evidence we even had narrations that even the pre Islamic Arabs, ironically would call them when I thought, which is very funny because they're giving them a very praiseworthy title. But yet we're not comfortable with these people's beliefs, but still had no objection no problem calling them as Hanif. So it's very ironic. It's really interesting. But nevertheless, these people were known as openiv. Allah subhanaw taala refers to them. machinae Brahimi yahudi. Alana scillonian. Well, I can gather hanifin muslimah. Deborah, he was he was the original Hanif. All right, Paul satola. Say that

00:17:10--> 00:17:51

Allah has spoken the truth. For Toby Omen letter, Ibrahima hanifin. Follow the way of Ibrahim the path of faith of Ibrahim Han even focused, what am I gonna mean a machete King. All right. And he he was not from amongst those people who associate partners with a lot. So they were known as a pinata. Now there were there were many of them, there's a list of them that probably extends a little bit beyond a dozen or so of them. But there were a few of them who were very noteworthy. And I wanted to go ahead and talk about some of them today, because I'm only gonna highlight about four or five of them who actually interacted with the prophets of Allah hottie sent them in some way or another,

00:17:51--> 00:18:33

because there was a very interesting interaction. Why? Because these are the last few, like, literally, you know, just the last few glimpses, the last few glimpses like sparks, of tawheed present in the world at that time, because remember, Christianity has been polluted. Christianity, by that time point in time has already been predominantly polluted, in the sense of the belief in Trinity, all right, accepting Jesus as the Son of God, this is very prevalent at that time amongst Christians. A Christian that is a true Morehead is very, very, extremely rare. In fact, those Christians would just be they were actually categorized under the law because they didn't even

00:18:33--> 00:19:09

follow the predominant the popular Christian doctrine at that time. All right, in similar similarly, same in terms of the people of the Jewish faith at that time, Jews of that time, majority of the Jews at that time were no longer following the law, by the letter of the word by that point in time, it was rabbinical law that was at that the tradition of the of the Jewish religion at that time, so they were more So following the rabbi's than they were the letter of the law of the total. In fact, the Torah they were, they were just told, don't worry about what the Torah says you don't understand the Torah, you don't have the capacity to understand the total, just do what we're telling you to

00:19:09--> 00:19:49

do. And Allah tells us, what were they telling them to do? You had infernal kalama dairy. When I saw how the mother came up, they were literally changing things around moving things around, they were altering the word that the message of the Torah itself. So based on that observation, these were very, very few last little sparks and glimpses of tawheed presence in the world at that time. And what's very interesting is some of them when they came into contact with the prophets, a lot of a sudden, even before his message or after his message initiated, all right, they believed in him, or they saw the signs of the coming prophet in him. And so they they at least expressed their desire to

00:19:49--> 00:20:00

want to follow him if they were still around when the message became public, or the revelation arrived, or if they were still allowed around. By the time revelation came the day except

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

assignment they follow the profits a lot. Hmm. But there were some of them very interestingly, who while they were sure they were still holding on to that essence of tawheed they still had enough arrogance within them to where they could not get on board with the profits a lot he sent me this message that was asking way too much. That was asking too much. All right, like Alright, fine. I'm okay with this concept of one god find that makes a lot of sense, but I'm not gonna listen to you. I can't listen to you. All right, because I think I know more than you, or whatever their condition their situation was. So I wanted to go ahead and just briefly highlight some of these individuals.

00:20:36--> 00:20:41

The first one amongst them is a bit of a new fade. They've been a bit new fade.

00:20:42--> 00:21:24

Even as harp narrates from the the it's not that goes back to a snap into the bucket. Or the Allahu taala and humor. She says, la a to say the nama newfane Muslim bajo Illa lol Kaaba. She says that I saw the Zayed bin I'm gonna be newfane leaning against the Kaaba. So you're sitting there in the huddle, leaning against the Kaaba, you're kuliah Marshall crush, and he's addressing the Quran is the Kaaba, this is where everybody's congregating. And this is where the leaders of the parish would meet. This is where they would have been another way their meeting as well. City Hall was here. And so he says, Yeah, Marshall parish is a very old, wise learned man amongst them. To them. He was just

00:21:24--> 00:22:01

an eccentric old man. You know, when you have somebody who's very knowledgeable, he's very wise. Everybody respects him very respected in the community. But he's just kind of eccentric. He just has a few eccentricities. Everybody just says, Yeah, that's kind of his thing. Just leave him alone. All right. So it just this is an eccentric old man, but nevertheless, he's very respected in the community. So he says yamashiro Quraysh. Oh Society of Quraysh will have enough su zaidan b a d. I swear by the one who has AIDS life in his hands. I swear by the one who holds aids life in his hand. So he's swearing By Allah, his name is Avi Singh. I swear by the one who holds my life in his hand.

00:22:02--> 00:22:47

My husband I do mean Kuma Allah Dini Ibrahim, Heidi. He says none of you is truly upon the religion of Ibrahim, except for myself. Other than myself, none of you on the religion to religion of Ibrahim. So she says I remember him saying these things even before the prophets a lot. He said them received divine revelation started preaching to the people. He threw me a pool and then he would say Allahumma he would sit there in the huddle and he would make dua, he would say Allahu Allah, in Nilo Alamo, humble Buju he about to copy. He would say, Oh Allah, if I knew what is the most beloved way of worshipping you, like if I knew what type of worship you approve of you love the most. But you

00:22:47--> 00:23:26

could be I would worship you in that way. in that manner. I would do it. Oh Allah, but I don't know. I'm just trying to figure this out. There's literally very little left of your true message here today in the world today. And so I don't even know what you want from your law. But if I knew I would do it if I knew I would do it when I can Nila but I don't know. I just don't know I don't know where to access it where to get it from. So my yesterday Allah Allah T and then he would literally make such the there. What kind of use only in Aqaba, he would come and you would pray. See, he would do such that you do see Jude and the narration say about him? Well, Kenny was somebody in the Kaaba,

00:23:26--> 00:24:04

when he would come and pray near the Kaaba in the home, you would pray in the direction of the Kaaba, like you would pray face towards the fibula, and you would pray in that direction. So you see the remnants, you see this adherence to the original religion of Ibrahim wayuu, Elahi inaka Ibrahim, he would say my God is the God of Ibrahim. My deity is the deity of Ibrahim my lord is the Lord of Ibrahim. What Dini Dino Ibrahim, and my religion is a religion of Ibrahim. That's all I know. So that's what he would say. And he really literally didn't know what to do beyond that, what kind of you he alluded to. And it even talks about the fact that and this is a very profound reality, when

00:24:04--> 00:24:47

true eemaan exists. When any semblance of a relationship with a law is truly present in the heart. When the heart is actually connected to a law, at any level, it will bring about morality. It will eat the obligates a person towards morality, you understand what I'm saying? What I'm saying is that when spirituality is alive at any level within a person, then social awareness, that person starts to become socially aware, that person will feel the need will feel obligated to be ethically and morally upright. To be a good person to put it in simple words. All right, using big words to just be a good person. All right, feeling spiritually connected in any way, shape, or form. makes a

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

person feel like I gotta be a good person. I gotta find a way to be a good person. And this is a very, very important reality we have to come to terms with do we find morality do we find ethics do we find morality outside?

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

Spirituality like people who are not truly connected? Sure, yes. But then Always remember, it is either short lived or it is based off of a specific idea or agenda, or motive, but the true selflessness and the true awareness of what it means to be good for the sake of being good.

00:25:19--> 00:25:47

Just being good, because that's what you're supposed to do. Regardless of what the situation circumstances, the condition is. All right, that comes with that connection with Allah. Now, we find a contradiction to that in our society, don't we, even in our Muslim community, you can find a person who, quote unquote, is a very spiritual person, a very devout person, this person prays more than anybody else I know. Right? They fast more than anyone else. I know. They are on more than anyone else I know. But he's also the most horrible person I know.

00:25:49--> 00:26:26

Right, that we know that that exists. It's a very unfortunate contradiction we have, you know what that tells you. People always ask me this question. People constantly ask me this question. And what I always tell them, is that right, they're not for us, we don't judge anyone. It's not our job. It's not my business to go around passing judgment on people. I'm not supposed to sit here and say, good person, bad person, that person good, not us on my job. I'm seeing for the person him or herself. What they can realize based off of their social conduct, their behavior, their o'clock, or lack thereof, what they're supposed to realize is that I obviously lacked something in spirituality. If I

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

pray five times a day, and I'm still a horrible person. When talking and dealing with people, that obviously means that I have a shell of prayer. I don't really truly pray. understand the difference. I fulfill the obligation. I go through the motions. I do a Yambuku Institute.

00:26:46--> 00:26:51

I flap my gums for three minutes. And that's what I do. But I don't pray.

00:26:52--> 00:27:23

I don't pray, I need to correct my prayer. because something is missing, something lacks. Alright, so this man's a bit of a new fail. We like we just talked about, he had some spiritual awareness. So what does it tell us about him? Oh, kinda you hear. We know a very unfortunate practice in pre Islamic Arabian society. Part of the social evils that I did not talk about specifically before was that they would, it was part of their culture. It wasn't rampid like that every single person did this. But it was still very, very,

00:27:24--> 00:28:05

it was very common within that culture, that people would kill would bury allied their daughters especially. And it's need some explanation, especially if the firstborn, if the firstborn was a daughter, like the very first child, a man had was a girl was a daughter, then at that time he felt, and even that was not amongst the elite, the elite did not do this. Because even their women would have a lot more power and control and respect. And even men in middle class and lower class society, it was mainly in middle to lower class society. All right, when their very first born child was a girl, they felt the need to go and bury her alive, like as an offering to the gods so that it would

00:28:05--> 00:28:19

be followed with his son. And this was a great crime and a great tragedy that occurred during that time. in that era, the Koran talks about what you did in mobile. So he let that grow that was buried alive, she'll be asked, be a given patina.

00:28:20--> 00:28:24

Due to what sin What wrong could she possibly have done,

00:28:25--> 00:28:58

that she deserved to be killed? That in exchange for that she was killed? All right, so those are very, very bad thing. What kind of you here, Buddha, but deep in our criminal field was this guy on a mission? He was a man on a mission, he would go around trying to save these girls from being killed from being buried alive. It was literally what he would do, he would literally find out that if he'd hear the news in this home, first one was a daughter, and they're probably going to try to bury your life, he would literally step in and say, Listen, if you want to be part of this girl, just hand it over me. You don't have to worry about it. You can consider her dead or buried or

00:28:58--> 00:29:39

whatever you want to just let me take care of her. But just please don't kill this baby girl. Don't kill this innocent child. Well, can you hear the modem? We're pulling the Rogen era, to the ignitor who, when he would find a man who is intending to go and kill his newborn daughter, that's up to her, don't kill her. It for her. Give her to somebody who can take care of her better meaning let me take care of her. I'll find somebody to take care of her. I'll take care of her. Please don't kill her for either the rods for who they were initiated for her. If she starts to find a place in your heart, then please keep her She's your daughter. If you become emotionally attached to her, then

00:29:39--> 00:29:56

keep her But if you don't, then give her up. Give her away. I'll take care of her. I'll take her away from me. You'll never have to hear from her car ever again. As far as you're concerned, she's dead. Right But please don't bury this girl. Don't kill her. So this this was the quality, quality and caliber of this man

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

and and they've been

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

I'm going to be newfane.

00:30:03--> 00:30:46

Ghana, your father, it means about fresh. Similarly, he was also very particular, he didn't indulge, he didn't want to sanction, he didn't want to show any type of approval for some of the very ship like practices that were prevalent in Malaysia that time. So when they would sacrifice animals on the names of the gods, the different idols and false gods and deities, he would not eat from those sacrifices, you would not go to the feasts that were done to celebrations that were done in the name of the the idols he would not participate in the less to accurate in the less to achill matters barnala sobre como la, la La, la, la, la, la La, la, he would say that, I do not eat from that which

00:30:46--> 00:31:10

you sacrifice for your idols. And similarly I do not eat except that which is sacrificed only and only in the name of God, in the name of Allah. Only that which is sacrificed in killed the name of a lot. I will lead from that outside of that I don't want don't bring me your food. Don't invite me to these idol worshipping parties, these fees, don't, please don't include me in this stuff. I have no business. I have no interest in this.

00:31:11--> 00:31:39

What were you able to elaborate about it? And when they would sometimes be having these feasts or they would be making sacrifices in the name of the gods and the idols, he would show up and you would even reprimand them, you chastise them, you would advise them, you're pulling a shot Holla Holla. This goat that you're about to kill, Allah created it, what ends another homina sama and MA in a lesser one that rains down water from the sky for this goat, what unbutton a hammock, analyze the one that allowed vegetation to grow from the earth to feed this goat.

00:31:42--> 00:31:55

And then after all of that process, you sacrifice it for someone other than Allah. What's wrong with you people? What's wrong with y'all? What's going on up here? And so he would you would advise him in this way.

00:31:56--> 00:32:19

And that's why it's mentioned about ABN AMRO to fail, that he passed away before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received this message. He passed away before the process and received his message. But the prophets a lot of them is narrated to have said about him. In authentic narrations, the prophets, a lot of the sermons narrated to have said your shadow that are omitted.

00:32:20--> 00:32:27

That man's aid been I'm going to be new failed will be resurrected on the day of judgment as an owner by himself.

00:32:28--> 00:32:29

You shall know that

00:32:30--> 00:33:09

you'll be resurrected as an oma by himself. baney will be nary a sub pneumonia as the oma that existed between me and between a sub pneumonia, as we know based on the variety of narrations have been cathedra is of the opinion that there were about 500 some odd years between the Prophet salallahu Salam and Isa alayhi salam, other historians are of the opinion it was closer to 600 some odd years. Nevertheless, you know, that's just a slight difference of opinion of 80 years here or there. But nevertheless, there was about five to 600 years between the profits awesome and a solid, solid. And that's why I mentioned this previously, Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah t as in the 20

00:33:09--> 00:33:10

apollomon. Mountain,

00:33:12--> 00:33:42

you have been sent to one two people that their forefathers were not warned. 500 years no message has come to these people from Corfu. That's why these people are so lost. So empathize with them. Don't talk down to them, empathize with them, sympathize with them, empathize with them, connect with them, realize where they're coming from. All right, and they will eventually get to where you need them to be for first, keep in mind where they're coming from. So because of that long duration, the process of them is saying that the long duration that existed between meaning

00:33:43--> 00:34:28

they've been able to fail will be resurrected as an oma diorama of that era, by himself whatever another narrations as you borrow from the metamodel. He'll be resurrected on the day of judgment as an oma all by himself. And he will be brought before our last panel Atala and then the prophet SAW Selim says in another narration, talking about you know, either during the journey of an Islamic Mirage or through one of his dreams, in which the prophets Allah SM was short shown Jenna Shawn paradise, he says the Hult agenda, the Hult agenda, I entered paradise for at least 18 Now I'm gonna be newfane Doha. I entered into paradise into Jenna and I saw reserved for Zaid binominal menoufia

00:34:28--> 00:34:59

for this man, Doha. Doha in the Arabic language means huge trees. All right, just shut your eyes just a tree. Nothing is like a date palm. Don't have means like a humongous tree like California redwoods. All right, like California redwoods like unbelievable tree like a tree that's like, like witnessing a miracle. A tree that's like witnessing a miracle of Allah's creation. All right, so he says I taught I saw two magnificent humongous, huge trees.

00:35:00--> 00:35:13

reserved for is a bit of a new fee for him to chill and for him to hang out underneath those trees in paradise in general. So the prophesy some spoke about this man and how you will be given gender.

00:35:14--> 00:35:25

And then of course it's men luck, luck, bad luck. He has a, they've been newfane our suits alavesa he met the Messenger of Allah salatu salam, but before Prophethood he met the processes on before Prophet, while Mata tabula

00:35:26--> 00:36:02

rasa. But he passed away before the process and received divine revelation received this message, another individual and this individual, I'm only going to talk about him very briefly, because he's going to come up later, one of the key moments one of the greatest moments in the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So I'm just going to introduce you to who he was in his life before Islam, but then we'll be talking more about him and the role that he played within Islam the the message, the arrival of the message, we'll talk about that later, when we come to that occasion within the CETA, the prophetic biography in Sharla. That second individuals, what are the new fate?

00:36:03--> 00:36:40

Excuse me, we're probably no fun. Work. No fun. All right. So what happened? No fun is that second individual, the second man, it's narrated about him that they the first individual talked about saving faith, he traveled outside of Arabia, he traveled to all the nearby regions anywhere that he could find anywhere that he could go to try to find the truth, the message of the truth, because you see, this man had this yearning to find the truth. So what happened no fun. also traveled was a phenomenal benefit. He was like his travel, but he was a travel companion. They were they were two men, so very, II, they did not agree they were not comfortable with the spiritual state in the

00:36:40--> 00:37:02

condition of Makkah. At that time he did they did not feel comfortable with what was going on. So when they told him that Listen, I leave, I'm going outside, I want to go travel around and try to find the truth. What are the NOFA that said, Hey, Mind if I roll with you, alright, because I'm trying to find the truth as well. So he traveled with him quite a bit. Yeah, but I'm Dean. And so he had to bail us trying to find the true Dean.

00:37:03--> 00:37:45

But while traveling, he went a slightly different route and saving did, and that was AP number came across Christianity. He came across Judaism, but he was he wasn't comfortable with what he found there either. So he just latched on to this idea of the deen of Ibrahim, the ILA of Abraham. And he said, I might realize Elijah, he might even as the Dean of Abraham, I'm not really sure what that means. But nevertheless, I'm willing to stick to my guns about that. I'm going to stick to my guns about that. All right, what about no food slightly different? In his travels, he came across certain marks, all right, adherence to Christianity, people who are adhering to Christianity, and they were

00:37:45--> 00:38:19

practicing the Christianity of old meaning they were practicing a slightly more cleaner version, pure version of Christianity, where that's why and that's why they had taken on monk ism, they had separated themselves secluded themselves from society, and they were living lifestyle as monks, all right, in little places of worship that they'd established for themselves. Why? Because they weren't comfortable with Christian society and Christian culture, and what was going on in terms of Trinity and Jesus, Son of God and things like that. So they kind of went off to the outskirts of society, civilization, they were living out there trying to practice the cleanest, purest form of

00:38:19--> 00:38:58

Christianity that they could figure out for themselves. So what acaba nofal came into contact with these people and ended up becoming a Christian but in this sense, and it's also said that he was the first one to translate the Bible, the Injeel into Arabic, and bring it to he just bring it to the the region where the aka the Hejaz region, he was the one to bring the Bible there. And he would literally by hand he would write, he would write copies and manuscripts of the Injeel of the Bible and try to distribute them amongst people and try to teach it to people. And he had like a little circle of people that he was trying to teach and trying to bring around from shift over to

00:38:58--> 00:38:59

Christianity.

00:39:00--> 00:39:01

And

00:39:02--> 00:39:38

so, of course, the the, the, the key role that he played later on, and we'll talk more about this is that he was the cousin of Khadija rhodiola, the first wife of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Khadija radi Allahu Allah, he was her cousin. All right, so when the prophets allows him and we'll be talking about this later in the seed, of course, this is that great moment, the turning point, when the Prophet ism received the first revelation, you could be someone who began to develop and the process and came back from their kingdom from the cave and came home and he was shaken up and he spoke to her and told her everything that happened, who did she end up taking him to? She took him

00:39:38--> 00:39:59

to her cousin, who knew a little bit about scriptures and prophets and things like that. That was what happened often. That was this man. And he so she took him to work of an orphan, and when she took them, their workers said to the profits or loss him into Khadija yaku saw the hunt for in Havana Moo Smith Nana moose Moosa, that if he speaks the truth

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

Did this angel that he talks about that came to him is the same Angel the same messenger that would come to

00:40:07--> 00:40:48

see me Angela would come for in for in Bertha and a height for in Botswana. Hey, if he is sent out to preach this message by Allah, and I am still alive, first fossa wuzhizhou I will not only respect him, but I will support him, I will fully back him and support him put all my influence in my power behind him while unsuitable I will help him in his message, what will mean will be and I will believe in him. And I will believe in him. So this is a story. This is who what up enough it wasn't Of course. So he proclaims this belief in the prophets a lot of the time. And that's why the scholars do classify him as somebody who didn't accept Islam where he believed, but nevertheless, he

00:40:48--> 00:41:04

was in a deer into heat. And he was practicing this and preaching this much, much before even the divine revelation. So he's one of those who whenever that was present in that society at that time, a third individual very interesting and this is where you get to see slightly the other side of things.

00:41:05--> 00:41:51

There was another man by the name of bluesmen sereda and Ed. Bushman, cida. Eliade. So push this man Robotham and Thomas radi Allahu anhu and others also married that windy Wofford of EOD EOD was a tribe he had was a tribe so much, much later, when the caravans and the the envoys the convoys started coming to the prophet SAW some tribes started arriving to accept Islam and to, you know, accept Islam and learn about Islam and accept Islam at the hands of the Prophet salani Sonam. One of those tribes or one of those caravans that came was from the tribe of Viet when they came the prophets, a lot of them ask them about policemen's either. See you guys know about a man named

00:41:51--> 00:42:00

Cushman Sarita for the karula. who and who Halak. They mentioned to him that Yeah, we remember him he was one of our old timers, but he died now he passed away.

00:42:02--> 00:42:43

For Allenby, sal Allahu Allah who sent him to prophesy. Some said at that time, the butcher he do Yeoman Bo Calvin. I saw him one day at the place of love, or God was a place right outside of MCC. I talked about this in the previous sessions, that God was a place near Morocco where they used to have a huge festival every year. And they would get together there and they would have poetry competitions, and they would worship the idols and they would do all of this type of fanfare. So it was like kind of like a big Carnival a big festival for them. So he says I saw him there. I liked Germany and he was writing a read. She Campbell, he has a column B column in margin. Monique, he was

00:42:43--> 00:42:56

speaking in he was speaking some words that were very astonishing. They were very surprising. They're really deep. He was saying some very deep, profound mind blowing stuff. Logic.

00:42:57--> 00:43:35

And then the Prophet system says I don't really remember what he was saying. But I just remember what he was saying was really deep and really profound. It was really mind blowing. For soccer. I had a father Wofford, one of the people in that caravan. He remembered he said, You have to remember some of the things you used to say for what yeah Masha, Nas each time he Oh, he would say Oh, people come together gathered together for coolamon, Mata Fattah, everyone who dies and that person has gone he's perished. Well, couldn't you say in an atom, but every single thing will come. We'll come back later, we'll come back later. Meaning everything is coming. Everything is coming. Meaning that

00:43:35--> 00:44:21

and this is almost like an expression. What he's basically saying is that everything you do in this world has a follow up has a consequence and and you're about to face the consequence of that thing. Lady Lu Leyland, dajin night that is Leyland dajin that night that is very, very deep and dark was Samar was Mr. Rajan and the sky that is full of forts meaning sky that is full of stars. So a night that is very, very deep and dark, but at the same time, it has like huge forts like shining stars up in the sky, what buffoonery judgment, but at the same time, you have the ocean that is raging with waves medulin does huddle stars that that twinkle in the sky was the bottom of Saturn, and mountains

00:44:21--> 00:44:40

that are deeply rooted into the earth? what and how much rotten and how much rotten and you have rivers that are streams that are flowing within the earth in fsms. In a burn in the sky, there is a huge realization there's a wake up call waiting for you in the sky, meaning look up and reflect at the sky and wake up, Molly.

00:44:42--> 00:44:45

Why is it that I see people that they go but they don't come back?

00:44:50--> 00:45:00

The day become happy with where they had gone so they just stayed on top of funnel or they completely left the truth and they've just fallen asleep oximeter

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

costume, eczema fuson biLlahi cus christmann Casa La la la Buffy he says that of course he says his name that I take an oath I take an oath by a law and this is an oath that there is no doubt in it in La la cadena verily for Allah, there is a dean there is a way of life who are who are bombing, Dini. kumada. And that Dean that Allah has reserved is more pleasing to a lot than this Dean that you people are practicing because I told you how to oka they would have festivities and they would celebrate this their idols. So he gives them this long speeches emaan inspiring talk. And then at the end of it, he would say look alike as a dean, and that Dean is more beloved than this Dean that

00:45:43--> 00:45:48

you people are practicing. And then he would read this type of poetry and he would try to advise the people.

00:45:51--> 00:46:28

So this was another man another individual that was present there at the time, before the message arrived to the Prophet system. So this was another Hanif during the days of je D. It doesn't really mention any more about exactly what happened with him what played out with him, but we just know that when his tribes people came to the prophet SAW, so the process of asked about him, and they said he died, he passed away. But nevertheless, this was the perspective of that man. There was yet another man, a fourth individual, I'll tell you about who was a Hanif practicing that or living by this idea of oneness of God, even before Islam in Arabian society, and that was may have been a be a

00:46:28--> 00:47:08

solid, who may or may not be a solid, who will lead the olofi Rasulullah. Cotta may have been a be a solid and and use Lima. The prophets a lot of them said that omega was very close to accepting Islam. Only It was very close to accepting Islam. Well Phoebe waiting for Lucha de cada and use Lima officially. The process of another narration says that Romania is very near to accepting Islam in his poetry, meaning his poetry oozes of Eman. his poetry reeks of emaan oozes drips among very close when you read his poetry, you feel like this guy was just about to become Muslim, where he is very close to being a Muslim.

00:47:09--> 00:47:15

And instead about him that he he was basically a practitioner of the Christian faith.

00:47:16--> 00:47:28

But he says recite and write a lot of poetry that will talk about the Hadith that will talk about oneness of God. Again, he was not a practice, practitioner of like common popular Christianity of that time, but a pure form of Christianity.

00:47:30--> 00:48:03

And he would talk about resurrection onto the object on the Day of Judgment, which was a very, very radical idea for pre Islamic Arab society. They thought that that was something they were absolutely not willing to be on board with. All right, and he was also known as one of the giants of poetry at his time, ngadimin hula shoe at all. He was known as one of the giants of poetry in his era. He lived until the time to where the prophet SAW some received divine revelation. But he did not accept Islam. He didn't accept Islam. Why? To caboodle an akuna

00:48:04--> 00:48:11

tabula rasa, he did not accept Islam out of arrogance, because he said I can't listen to what he tells me

00:48:12--> 00:48:52

is he's like a kid. This is an elderly man. He's a giant of he's an intellectual giant of his time in his era. He's a master poet of his time. All right, I just felt it beneath himself below himself to listen to the prophets of Salaam. So he built you talk about the rain, but he did not attempt to stop even though the message came to him. divine revelation, that kind of message came to me he rejected a refusal why he was too arrogant to follow the prophet SAW Selim, and about him the aim of the Quran many of the mufa saloon and scholars say that this is the Quran was revealed in regards to him he is one of the people to whom to whom this is applied, where Allah subhanaw taala says in the

00:48:52--> 00:49:34

Quran, what to do I lay him never led attina who I attina are off, I am number 175. What do I lay him, recite upon them, meaning relate to them. Number 11 the story of the men and Lady attina who is Athena, we gave him Our Ayat, meaning we gave him our science. He could look at the sky and know nothing realize that there was something profound about it. He heard the Quran and he he could recognize that there was something unique and distinct and divine about it. And I think that's why we gave him the site fansler Caminha but what did he do? He retreated from it. In Salah ha literally means to pull something out of something else.

00:49:35--> 00:49:43

To extract something to pull something out of something else. He literally extracted himself funds out of Amina, he pulled himself out of that guidance.

00:49:45--> 00:49:48

Whatever shade, fence Allah Caminha further our shade.

00:49:50--> 00:49:59

Photographer shavon fanomena Harmon, he ended up following shavon and what ended up happening to him. He became from those people who were wondering about

00:50:00--> 00:50:07

aimlessly through life. So he received all the science, but out of his arrogance very consciously aware,

00:50:08--> 00:50:48

very aware, very cognizant, very aware, very consciously. He pulled himself out of guidance, followed the shaman and lived a life of just complete. This illusion, had no idea which purpose he was living his life for. All right, it said about him that he died either in the second tier of heater, or he died in the ninth year of higit. Ah, there's a variety of narrations. But he did not accept the sound but again, what goes to show you that he realized that there was some truth there, he actually wrote a poem, whatever she had on Felisa, he cazzola Qureshi on Cobra,

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

he wrote a poem,

00:50:52--> 00:51:11

kind of memorializing the people who died in the battle have bothered, he wrote a poem memorializing them talking about them, that whether they were good or bad, and what's going to happen to them not that they died and then the afterlife what will transpire with them. So you see that this person had certain ideas, but yet his arrogance prevented him from believing.

00:51:13--> 00:51:56

Yet another person and this is a probably this will be the last person I talked about. A fifth individual I'll tell you about who is from the NFR people who believed into hate, even before Islam, the message of the prophets a lot ism was lobbied been robbia alamiri. He was also from one of the giants of poetry in the pre Islamic era, from the zemon of Jehovah, from the time of God will meet you are in the past. Not only that, but he received a very distinct honor of that time. His some of his poetry was determined to be so eloquent, so profound, so great, that his some of his poems were actually hung on the Kaaba and around the Kaaba. I talked about this before, that poetry that was

00:51:56--> 00:52:29

deemed to be the most the best poetry of that time, would literally be hung from the Kaaba and around the Kaaba. It was called the alma alacarte, the Han poems, and it would be hung around the Kaaba, because that was the most sacred place. And that was a great honor for those poets. He was one of those poets that received that honor that during his lifetime, his poems are actually hung up around the Kaaba. So he was a great poet of that time. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said about him, as, as dapu can imagine. Kala hatia in Kalamazoo Bay debate, lobbied the prophets a lot he sent him said

00:52:30--> 00:52:36

that some of the truest words that a poet has ever spoken, were the words of libido.

00:52:37--> 00:53:15

were the words of libido. These are some of the truest words some of the most profound things that any poet has ever said. were the words of libido. And aku, Shea in masala Allahu belting is very famous, famous poet poem that he said, and this word, the prophets alesund said this little phrase, this little couple of this little snippet of his poems are probably one of the most profound things that a poet has ever, ever said. And in fact, Islamic scholars throughout the centuries throughout the generations have always used this phrase use this snippet of this poem of his when talking about a lot and they've always taught it to their students. We were taught this by our teachers as well.

00:53:15--> 00:53:19

And that phrase is alappuzha in masala, Lago batido.

00:53:20--> 00:54:02

Allahu Allah, Allah. He said, Allah Allah is like an exclamation to Arabic language in classical Arabic. It means Listen up, pay attention, listen up. Listen up good news. In each and every single thing Masha Allah, Allah who other than Allah, each and every single thing other than Allah, aside from Allah, every single thing other than Allah, Botha Lu, it is bothered. What does that mean when we hear about that we have a very specific meaning of that in our mind. It's the antonym of Huck. Correct. And we think of it in terms of like how cuz the truth button is falsehood. Not that's not how that's not what it means in classical Arabic in its roots. It is the antonym of the word hop it

00:54:02--> 00:54:45

is the opposite of the word hub, but the word half in classical Arabic in its roots, it means something that is on a solid foundation. The word hop means something that is solid, on solid footing, solid foundation is called hot button is the opposite something that is unstable is not on solid footing is not on a solid foundation is called buckling. It's called bottom. And that's why we know it as the plan presented to us as truth and falsehood because truth is on solid footing. It's established its truth. All right, and that which is false hood is called busted because it's Ranger, Jalil, Huck, WA Zagato in Alberta, Canada. That's why Allah says that. All right, so he's saying

00:54:45--> 00:54:45

Allah,

00:54:46--> 00:54:48

Masha Allah Allahu

00:54:49--> 00:55:00

ichi and every single thing other than a Why is button. It has no foundation. It's here today gone tomorrow. The only thing that is permanent, the only

00:55:00--> 00:55:07

Only thing that is establishes Allah everything has been analyzed must loop its creation. So therefore it has no foundation.

00:55:09--> 00:55:28

It is only in existence as long as Allah allows it to be in existence. When Allah deems it to be when Allah decrees it to be non existent it'll be go out of existence. That's very in line with that puranic idea as well and sort of man that Allah subhanaw taala says kulu Manali ha, fun,

00:55:29--> 00:55:33

good lumen Anika we are which will be good to

00:55:34--> 00:55:44

each and every single thing on this earth in existence is fine. It will expire. It's running out, it's fading away. But the only thing that remains is the face of your Lord.

00:55:45--> 00:56:20

The only the face of your solution in honeycomb Illa what each and every single thing is meant is moving towards perishing, towards extinguishing expiring except for Allah except for his face except for Allah. So this is what some of the very profound words that have been said, well, Islam Allah bit and this poem this poet lobbied he actually accepted Islam. Well, McAfee he left it Earth man. He died much much later during the life of Earth man but I found with the Aloha new brother and I shall be our home cinema.

00:56:21--> 00:57:02

And even harder Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah even harder, and other scholars like in LA Saba family for the Sahaba in Asadullah Baba, these, all these different books that document and talk about the different companions and people from the time of the prophets a lot he said them, many of these scholars, they talked about the fact that he lived to be 150 years old, he lived to the age of 150. All right, and then he passed away at that time. So this was a man with a lot of experience had seen a lot deep, profound wisdom. And of course, he accepted Islam and lived until the silica of Earth man when I found out he loved what I knew. And there's and then there's a whole list of people

00:57:02--> 00:57:47

another dozen or so individuals who were, you know, a deer in situ heed the deer to heed even in the pre Islamic era. One of the one set a couple of them that I find that are very noteworthy is gabin loue. Bin avalable kurachi, cabin Louie, Louie bin hollywell Qureshi, who is one of the great, great grandfather's of the prophets a lot. He's no, he's actually one of the forefathers, one of the great, great, great grandfather's of the processor. He falls under this category of these people who were practitioners and preachers of tawheed in a predominantly ship based society. All right, another person that's named amongst them is a tsunami, who also accepted Islamic karma hula hoop in

00:57:47--> 00:57:52

Islam, Allah honored him by giving him Islam and allowing him to accept Islam. And then

00:57:53--> 00:58:17

one other name. And I'm not going to talk about him now. Because next week session is going to focus solely on the immediate family of the profits or losses, Emma, we'll talk about them in more detail next week. But one of the other individuals who's listed amongst the list of one alpha, people who believed into heed oneness of God, pre islamically, all right, by some of the scholars, some of the historians is actually optimal.

00:58:20--> 00:58:58

The grandfather of the Prophet saucer, he's put in this list by a lot of scholars. And there's a huge discussion, we'll talk about it when we get there. But and actually, next week, we're also going to be talking about the incident of the invasion of the elephants. All right, I'm gonna feed the year of the elephant in that great incident that occurred that just, you know, immortalized in the in the sutra of unfeeling turkeyfoot hybrid field. So we'll talk about it in there. So some of this dialogue, some of his discourse, some of his ideas that he expressed, during that time, during the invasion of the elephants and that army of the elephants, it gives you a very clear indication

00:58:58--> 00:59:34

of the fact that he was a very open practitioner and preacher and advocate of the heat. Not only that, but we also see in the words of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, during the husband who named after Fatima, the Battle of mean in which the Muslims were the majority. And of course, we'll come to this much, much later, in the cedaw. Muslims are the majority but something very interesting happened. There were a lot of new converts to Islam and people who weren't quite established within their faith yet, and they the army started to fall apart and break apart and disperse. And at that time, the prophets a lot of them made a rallying cry, he made a rallying call, and he rallied

00:59:34--> 00:59:54

together some of the older Sahaba some of the long term Sahaba to rally together and then the Muslims were able to overcome the advance from the enemy at that time. And that rally cry, that battle cry that rallying call that the prophets a lot he sort of made at that time. And this is mentioned in authentic narrations as he said, and then the bu laccadive.

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

He started to save loudly in the battlefield, cry out in the battlefield, and then the

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

You laccadive I am the prophet and this is not a lie. And then the bu laccadive and uptil metallic, I am the son of Abdulmutallab, of course, he means grandson. Alright, that's obviously understood. All right, like when the grandson when the grandfather calls his grandson, he calls him son. All right, that that, that that's just an expression, that means he's my son, son, of course. So the process, I'm saying, I am the son, meaning I'm the grandson of Abdulmutallab. And some of the scholars see that even the profitsystem, proclaiming himself like that in battle against the enemy against non Muslims that I am the son of adultery, also is an indication of the fact that I've

01:00:36--> 01:00:58

looked at it was very open, advocate after he'd even pre islamically Allahu Allah, Allah Allah knows best. So that's a little bit about this, this small contingent, these scattered individuals who held on to this idea, this faith, this belief of the oneness of Allah, subhanaw, taala, even pre islamically, even before

01:01:00--> 01:01:06

the preaching and the teaching of the message of the prophets allows him and even before the birth of the prophets a lot. So

01:01:07--> 01:01:17

what we're going to be talking about next week is we'll be talking about the year of the day, the invasion of the army of the elephants, and we'll also start talking about some of the immediate family members of the prophets a lot. So

01:01:18--> 01:01:33

what I wanted to end with here today, in these last few minutes, was talking a little bit about the family history of the prophets a lot. So I wanted to talk about this very, very briefly, you know, something very interesting

01:01:34--> 01:02:16

that the scholars talk about is, you know, loot alehissalaam loot alehissalaam. In the Quran, you know, when he When, when, when he's dealing with that very difficult situation of he's received these gets these guests who were angels in the form of human beings. And the very immoral people of his society, his community are making a very strong advance towards these people towards these individuals. And he's trying to talk some sense into them. He's trying to talk some some sensibility into them. He says at that, at that time, I'll only be come forward. I wish I had some strength to facing people to deal with you people. Oh, are we in Iraq ninja leader, I could go back and lean on

01:02:16--> 01:02:59

a very, very strong pillar. And what that's an expression of what that means is I wish I had like family backing and family support. I wish I had like a family and a tribe to lean back on that would support me in this type of a difficult situation. The profits lesson came from a very, very prestigious noble family. He came from a very amazing background, a very blessed lineage. And this isn't something superficial, while solely finding value for yourself in solely based on the family you come from or your lineage is superficial, alright, spiritually superficial. All right. Nevertheless, there is a certain value in it in the sense of it gave the prophets a lot of human

01:02:59--> 01:03:31

credibility to speak amongst his people, because he was dealing with people who are very superficial, who are spiritually shallow, who would only listen to somebody if he came from a good family. And at the same time, it gave the process some support. We all know Abu Talib didn't accept the song but continue to support him and defend him. He was the defender who was the gatekeeper to the profits a lot so they couldn't get near him. They're gonna harm him couldn't lay a finger on him while he was alive. So it has a very, very strong significance. And the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam says,

01:03:33--> 01:03:38

in a narration the Hadith in the last alpha cannon, I mean will the is Mary Alice has selected Canada,

01:03:39--> 01:04:12

from the children of his Mary, west of operation in Canada. And then he selected the tribe of British from Canada, from the overall lineage of Canada was the farming operation Bani Hashim. And then a lot chose selected by new Hashim. The family have been hand on what we call the new do the extended family of boo Hashem, from Quraysh from the tribe of grace was the funny meme bunny Hashem, and he chose me from Banu Hashim meaning I have been selected from the cream of the cream of the cream of the cream of crop.

01:04:13--> 01:04:42

I come from the best appears of the peers of the peers of the peers. And it gave him that credibility. The Prophet of Allah somebody said him says another nation in the Lhasa agenda geomechanical helper, john and if you say to him, the day when Allah created the creation, he put me amongst the best people through Medina federal Patanjali if you hate him for the pain, they are distributed to people further he put me in the better group amongst the two distributed groups through mahina john kabayan, and if you fail, it will be

01:04:44--> 01:04:59

distributed further the people into tribes you put me in the best of tribes through mahina john and john geralyn. If he hated him, they were amongst the tribe distributed the homes a lot put me in the best of homes for anahita who mess up and who hated him beaten and from amongst the best

01:05:00--> 01:05:39

People when it comes to lineage and I'm from amongst the best of people when it comes to homes, the house I came from the family I came from, and that's why when Abu sufian stood before place of the emperor of Rome, and when he was asked about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he was asked, Do you think he's doing this just to gain some prominence amongst your people like he has some ulterior motive, abusive fiance know who Athena Vanessa, who Athena who mess up, he belongs to a very high, esteemed lineage amongst us, there's no way I mean, he comes from the best family you can imagine. So that's not why he did this. And so something very profound, something that is a miracle

01:05:40--> 01:05:48

of the life of the prophet Elijah and is a beauty of the setting the Sita is that the entire lineage of the prophets, a lot of them is preserved till other Maliki Salah.

01:05:49--> 01:06:20

His entire lineage is preserved to allow the monies no other human being claimed his his lineage is preserved all the way till Adam alayhis salam, there are three basic parts of the lineage. I'll just read it to you here. The first part of it is a unanimously accepted, it's documented, it's Surefire. The second part of it. There are a few differences of opinion about a few names here and there, but it's still documented. And then the third part of it is after Ibrahim on a Salaam and that part of it, of course, is well established as well.

01:06:21--> 01:07:26

Mohammed Abdullah Mohammed Hassan Abdullah bin Abdul muttalib bin Hashem bin abdomen have been to say bin killer bin kolab b Maura bin cap bin Louie bin Khalid bin Fahad bin Malik bin never been cananda bin hoceima bin Mutharika bin ilias bin madora bin Azhar bin Wyatt been added on this part of it is well established from there it goes Bin Bin what bin who may sir bin Salman bin our bin boos bin in one bin obey bin our bin Nasheed bin Huizar bin Valdez bin yet elaphe bin fabious bin Jassim bin now hash bin marfy Bin Bin avocado bin obeyed bin Abdullah bin Hamdan bin symbol bin yes Ruby bin yazan been yell Han when are we been hired? bin Dijon bin is our bin if not been a hum been

It then continues after Ibrahim Ali Salam bin Azhar bin now who bins who've been Ruru Bin Bin Ahmed bin Shani bin or fish Ben Arfa, shad bin sam binu alehissalaam bin namic bin metu Mattoon challies bin Idris alehissalaam vignetted bin me mainly lol been keen on being an EU shut been she's been Adam Allah He masala This is the entire lineage of the prophets of Allah.

01:08:12--> 01:08:49

And what's remarkable is there are scholars that were actually made to memorize this. I haven't probably reviewed in a while so I had to read it off of my notes. But we were made to memorize this 1000s 1000s of scholars around the world have the entire lineage of the prophets Allah memorized millions of scholars and people throughout our 1400 year history had the entire lineage of the prophets Allah just memorize and they don't even know their own lineage beyond their own grandfather, great grandfather. That is the esteem the respect the honor the dignity that Allah has granted to Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the

01:08:49--> 01:09:15

reality of who he was. May Allah allow us to develop true love for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. inshallah Next week, we'll continue with our series on the prophetic biography. We'll be talking about the army, the invasion of the army of elephants, and we'll start talking about the individuals who were immediately related to the process unlike his father, mother, grandfather, etc. May Allah subhanaw taala give us the ability to practice everything that was said and heard, does not come in our head on so I'm really comfortable.
