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

So continuing on with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, masirah to Nova we're

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

in the previous couple of sessions, actually, we were talking about

00:00:42--> 00:00:49

the major event that occurred during the mid 30s of the Prophet of Allah Salafi sent him.

00:00:50--> 00:00:55

When he was about 35 years old, as mentioned by the vast majority of the scholars of Sierra,

00:00:56--> 00:01:09

there was a renovation of the GABA a reconstruction of Bay to LA. And that was one of the major events and occurrences during the life of the process that I'm particularly during his middle aged years around the age of 35.

00:01:10--> 00:01:22

After the reconstruction, the renovation of the Kaaba, which again, the process of some is in his mid 30s. We are now at this point, literally just a few years away from the beginning of Revelation.

00:01:24--> 00:02:07

At this point in time, typically the scholars in the books have seen at all, what they mentioned, and what they discuss at this point from the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is because this major event of the beginning of Revelation, or rather the beginning of the revelation of the Quran, the beginning of the revelation to Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. But another way to view the beginning of revelation of the Quran is the continuation or the re initiation of divine revelation in general. Because you have to remember the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam is the completion, not just a continuation, but the completion of the message and the guidance of Allah.

00:02:08--> 00:02:35

Which means that, you know, the revelation is something divine revelation, something that had been going on for centuries for generations, with the prophets and the messengers of the past. And Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was not just a continuation of that message, and of prophethood, but he was the CEO of prophethood. So therefore, he was the completion of new Buddha, the completion of the message and the completion of what he in divine revelation.

00:02:36--> 00:03:18

But what that also means, as I'm saying is that the prophets of the past had received this message. And now something very interesting. The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in many narrations, he alludes to the large gap that had occurred between the prophethood of Isa alayhi salam, and the prophethood of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and by many of the scholars of history and of the Quran and Sunnah of Hadith. They say that one of the largest gaps that occurred between two prophets was probably between esala his salon and Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam This is alluded to in the Quran as well leeton dirocco mama on there are about one form of Elune

00:03:19--> 00:03:59

that so that this message was sent to you so that you could warn people that their forefathers had not been warned before you and before them for who have you known. And that's why you find these people so aloof, you find them so apathetic, you find them so astray, and so deviated from the course heedless. This is why, because not only had these people never received a message before you, but their forefathers, generations upon generations, centuries upon centuries of their forefathers had not received the message. 600 years have passed, since the message had not been sent to these people. And that's why you find these people in the condition in the state that you find them in

00:03:59--> 00:04:39

today. So it's very important to also understand that that when the message of the prophets a lot, he said, I'm the divine revelation to Ursula syllogism is beginning, that's an event in and of itself. But along with that, what you also have to understand is that it's going to be the very first time in six centuries, that the message of Allah is being revealed down to this earth, that our Prophet of Allah, guided by Allah will be walking this earth. It's been six centuries since that has happened. So it's a very, very important event. Now, because of that, now, before we talk about the actual, you know, and even then we're before we even talk about the beginning of Budden

00:04:39--> 00:05:00

whitening the beginning of Revelation, we're actually probably in the next session we're going to talk about the Prophet of Allah syllogism developing the habit in the year, a year and a half, almost two years before the revelation was before the revelation began before it caught up with some Arabic Allah the hallak in the year and a half to two years before that. The Prophet

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

Have a loss of Luddism develop the habit of going up to the cave of hate or taking out days at a time. And as the day of Ecuador became closer and closer, the process of slowly started to increase the time that he would spend up there in the cave of it all, as if in anticipation of something that something was very close, he was on the brink of something. And to the point where it became weeks at a time,

00:05:26--> 00:06:04

where eventually and we'll talk about the nourishment of the alarm, it eventually became so concerned, she knew how much provision how much food the processing taken up with him, and the number of days had passed that would, you know, that would suffice that, you know, the number of days have passed for the amount of food that he had taken to the point where Khadija rhodiola decided to pack food and take it up to him. So we'll be talking about that in detail why the process animals going what he was doing, when he was going, and how long he continued this practice, and what exactly he was getting out of this particular practice, which is referred to in the books of

00:06:04--> 00:06:10

seed on the books of Hadith as at the hand of and we'll talk more about that inshallah, in the following session.

00:06:11--> 00:06:19

But in a few years leading up to it, one of the things that is very specifically mentioned by the scholars of Sierra is

00:06:20--> 00:06:48

one established fact, and a brother brought this to my attention as well that this is a question a lot of people have an established fact is that there was some prophecy. There was some prophecy that was present, particularly amongst the People of the Scripture, the people of the books, the Gita, the more knowledgeable amongst the Kitab, the more honest and trustworthy amongst the Kitab there were certain narration certain

00:06:49--> 00:07:15

men mentions of the Prophet of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam of Muhammad Rasul Allah ceylonese, and that were present amongst those people. Now one question that is often presented in a brother brought it to my attention that, but if these narrations are these scriptures, and this word was kind of out there, then why would it be so shocking to the people of MCI data processing was claiming new boy claiming profited, then why wouldn't more people believe?

00:07:16--> 00:07:58

Then everybody would expect it everybody would be anticipating everybody would be okay with it, then what would be the problem? Well, the answer to that question is actually in studying this subject in a little more depth, what you when you study it, when you read it more properly, what you realize and find out is, yes, there were some scripture out there. And there were some of the scholars of the Scripture, the Jews, and the Christians, who knew of some prophecies, and were mentioning about the Prophet of the Last time coming and his his arrival becoming very near and very close. His his Dawa, and his message, they were very close to his message and his Dawa, you know, about to be

00:07:58--> 00:08:21

revealed. But, at the same time, these individuals who knew of this, who believed in this, who mentioned this were very, very few in number, extremely rare, to the point where there was not more than a handful of individuals with knowledge of this fact. And were actually actively talking about it. And they were typically being written off as crazy people.

00:08:23--> 00:09:03

Like, if there's 1000s, of Christian priests, and you only have a couple of them who talk about this Prophet of the Last Times coming, they tended to be the ones who are a little more honest and trustworthy to begin with. So they were already considered to be on the fringe. They were weird. They didn't belong to the general fraternity of priests. And so typically, they weren't listened to. And they themselves were very reclusive in nature, because they were biding their time waiting for that profit of the last time to arrive, so that they could go to him and they could accept this, they could basically pledge their allegiance and give an oath of allegiance to him, and believe in

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

that Prophet and be amongst the followers of that Prophet of the Last time. So they were very reclusive in nature. Plus, they didn't belong to the general fraternity of priests or rabbis. So they weren't very publicly accepted. They weren't very popular, they weren't very famous to begin with. So that's kind of the explanation as to Yes, there was certain mention of the prophets a lot he sent them. But it wasn't very publicly known. It wasn't very public knowledge. And even if these people with the knowledge or the prophets, knowledge of the prophecy of this Prophet of the Last Times arriving and coming, then they weren't listened to them. They weren't generally accepted by

00:09:40--> 00:09:53

the common populace. Alright, so that's kind of the explanation as to yes, these narrations were there. these prophecies were there, but they were not accepted by the general mass public. And why that exactly happened and why that exactly occurred.

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

Even concede even his half even his Sham, and many of the other classical scholars have seen

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

They talk about you know, Mr. malbay huthi abou I am in his de la kita boo de la in a mammal Bay in his book Delilah Nobu, a mammal Bay happiness kita Buddha Allah and they all mentioned these narrations, in fact, in my humble has an entire chapter in his Muslim, in which he talks about many of these narrations. So I'm going to be mentioning some of these because as the time of the Prophet polysomes revelation was arriving, as the day of Ecuador was coming nearer and nearer and closer and closer, that the the fervor amongst these few individuals continued to grow. And their chatter began to increase. And their anticipation continued to grow. Because that day was coming closer and

00:10:43--> 00:10:44

closer.

00:10:45--> 00:11:25

Even as harp Rahim, Allah in his book of zero, he mentioned that there were many of the rabbis from amongst the Jews, there were a few of them, who had this knowledge and read from the Scripture, and were very open about the fact that this Prophet of the Last time was coming, and they began to mention it. There were some priests amongst the Christians amongst amongst the Christians who were talking about this. And this is something that the Quran corroborates that. insults are often at number 157. Allah says, Allah the negative your own Rasulullah, Nabi ilumi, that the people who will follow the prophet who was unlettered

00:11:26--> 00:12:09

Allah venia, Juna who mokuba narinder. From Fedora it will mean that they will find him written, meaning they will find him mentioned both in the total Indian gene that they will find his mentioned there. Allah subhanaw taala Of course in pseudo to soften it number six, Allah subhanaw taala talks about an ISA and a Salaam foretelling the coming of the profits all of a sudden, with either a seminar Maria Maria Vanessa eating when he saw a salam, several children of Israel in Nero sudo la la comunidad de Palma de nada Minato da uomo Bashir on para su Lin. Yeah, team embody he is smooth, Ahmed. Yeah, team embody is Muhammad, that when he saw he said, I'm several children of Israel, I am

00:12:09--> 00:12:47

a messenger of God who have who has been sent to you. And I attest to that which is before me from the total, meaning I confirmed the total to you. And I'm also for telling you giving you the prophecy, giving you the good news, congratulating you have a prophet who will come after me and his name will be ash mud. And if you go back and listen to the previous sessions that we've conducted here, you'll remember that one of the names given to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam at the time of his birth was the name of mud. In fact, the mother of the prophets along the son of Amina Omar Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was actually fond of calling the prophets a lot of them by

00:12:47--> 00:13:24

the name, Ahmed, that she herself used to refer to him as Ahmed. And that's why many of the family members of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would continue to call him Atma, then would refer to him as Akhmad because that was the name that the mother of the process and we used to call him and that's why Ooh, a man but aka, the woman who cared for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was one of the foster mothers of the prophets a lot he said them years after the Prophet hood of the Prophet hood began, even into the years of Medina. It was noted by the Sahaba of the loved one whom Darwin omo Ayman Baraka, when she would speak to the prophets, a lot of him she would of course, address him with

00:13:24--> 00:13:34

respect to rasulillah. But oftentimes lovingly, she would call the prophets a lot he said, I'm mad, because of the habit of the mother of the prophets a lot of a sudden

00:13:35--> 00:14:15

you know, Allah subhanaw taala in Surah. Tilford I in number 29 at the end of Sultan, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Mohammed Rasulullah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah will levena ma who will co fari Rama avena whom Tara from Luca and Su Jaden Yerba Buena phenomena la what is one that Allah speaks about the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, that the people that are with him are very the people, we're letting them out who the people that are with him are very harsh against the disbelievers, very merciful and compassionate amongst one another. You'll see them performing the real core and doing sujood and they want a seat from Allah subhanho wa Taala His pleasure and his

00:14:15--> 00:14:40

blessing. Seema houfy will do him in atheletes sujood. You'll see their signs on their faces, from the effects of performing sujood before Allah prostrating before Allah Valley gamma fellahin fedorova methylone filling gene and then very interestingly, Allah says that is the same description that has been given for them in the Torah and the same description that has been provided about them in the Injeel as well. And

00:14:41--> 00:15:00

yet again, another place in the Quran in surah al e Imran and I in number 81. And this is very interesting. Allah says, way the hava lagunita Nabina Lama at a two min Kitab we're hikma. thuma jochum rasuna Masada Colima ma Camila took me no no biggie Wollaton Suna. There are a lot took a covenant from the Prophet

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

It's all the prophets, that If ever a book comes to you and wisdom comes to you, and or rather when the book has been given to you and wisdom, knowledge has been given to you, then after that a messenger comes to you, meaning if you have been given Prophethood and if a profit was to follow after you have for profit was to come after you methodically mama come and he confirms that which has been revealed to you, let me know Nabhi then you will believe in him You must believe in him will attempt sooner and you must aid him and support him in the mission in the cause. Kala Corrado mahatama Allah Allah, Allah wa Khurana then of course a las panatela takes that covenant and rolls

00:15:46--> 00:16:06

with him and they they confirm they said yes, we have Karla first. Hello, and America Mina shahidan and Allah subhanaw taala makes him a witness to this covenant. So the prophets of the past we're all told that a prophet will come and follow after you and you must believe in Him and you must attest to His Prophet, and you must support him in his cause in his in his mission.

00:16:08--> 00:16:11

And that's why even our bus running along one who

00:16:12--> 00:16:52

narrates that the Prophet of Allah salami, somebody even corroborates this, and he says my Baba Laguna began Illa Allah Allahu Mita. Whenever Allah sent a prophet, he took a covenant from him. The inborn ether Mohammedan wa Hagen like you man like me, Nana v. Williams Runa that is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would be sent after the Prophet, they would have to believe in the Prophet of Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, and they would have to aid Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and even Ibrahim Alayhi Salam in Surat Al Baqarah. We know that he may do our robina wa t him Rasulullah Minh whom he had to know on Am I Attica, where your unemployment Kitab al hickmott

00:16:52--> 00:17:34

away yuzaki him that Oh Allah our Lord, our masters send amongst these people, a prophet who is from them, who will recite upon them your signs, and who will teach them your book and who will teach them the wisdom and who will purify them? And that's why in the Muslim Devi Mama Mama demon Muhammad brings generation and Hadith from abou mama radi Allahu anhu, who says school to Yara Sula, la Makana, Badu America, or messenger of Allah How did your affair began meaning what was the beginning of your story? Oh prophet of Allah, what is the beginning of your story and the Prophet of Allah Allah Addison responds by saying Dara to be Ibrahim

00:17:35--> 00:18:24

dour to be Ebrahim that I am the doer of my forefather Ibrahim alayhi salam, meaning that my story began by my forefathers Ibrahim Ali Sana making dua for me making making dua that a prophet be sent amongst the people will Bushra Isa and I am the good news that Aisha Ali Salaam delivered What are at only under who ye Flo Jo minha neuron, other Atma who hoopoe Sham and then my my my mother saw a light a nude and force emanating from her illuminated from her and that it illuminated the world as far as the palaces of Rome, or the palaces of Syria, a sham Villa Duchamp. So the Prophet of Allah syllogism also speaks to this fact and he alludes to this.

00:18:25--> 00:19:07

Mr. Muhammad also brings another narration in which the Prophet of Allah salon he said um, it's narrated by a bobbin. Saudia, radi Allahu anhu. He says that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam said in the abdollah I am the slave of Allah. Wa hazza Mona bien, and I am the seal of all the prophets were in the Adam lemon, Danny john feed Lena tea, and that other Maliki Salam was in between was basically in the process of his formation, family history Salam was in the process of his formation, meaning either Mali Salam hadn't even been formed yet. And at that point in time, I had already been made a profit by Allah subhanaw taala. And I was appointed as the seal of the

00:19:07--> 00:19:28

prophets was that will not be open be overly Delica and let me tell you about the beginning of the story down to Avi Brahim, that you are of my forefather Ibrahim, what Bashar Teresa be and there is on a Salaam giving the good news of my coming. What Oh, yeah, me allottee rot and the dream that my mother had seen.

00:19:29--> 00:19:54

Work as Alico, Mahajan, Mahajan, Manhattan Nabina, Reyna and it's something very interesting that this narration mentions the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam says, All the prophets of Allah, all the prophets of Allah who are given birth to by a woman, their mothers would always see the same dream that my mother had seen. All their mothers would see in their dream that they were told that they were about to give birth to somebody very special and very unique.

00:19:55--> 00:20:00

Yet again, it's mentioned by Mr. Mohamad in that same chapter in

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Muslims that Mr. Mohammed says, narrated by

00:20:06--> 00:20:52

Mesa el fudger palapa, Rasul Allah metalcon shenanigan Oh prophet of Allah when were you made a profit? When were you given profit would when were you in profit and abhi pallava Adam bainer rule he will just said that I was a prophet when Adam was in between being a just a soul and in between his body, meaning even before the soul was breathed into the body of other money Salaam. I was already a prophet at that time. Yet in another narration, it's mentioned that Abou salema from narrates from Abu Dhabi Allahu anhu, suella Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam metatarsalgia, Kanagawa, Daro, messenger of Allah when was profited decreed for you. When was it decided and

00:20:52--> 00:21:30

decreed that you would be a prophet of Allah, the prophet of Allah, Allah says being a healthy Adam, one of a roofie. Between the time that Adam Ali Salam was formed into his physical form, and the soul was breathed into either Monday Salaam in between the time it was already decreed and decided, so before mankind was created, Allah subhanho wa Taala had already decreed, and that Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam would come at the end of prophethood, he would come at the end of times that he would be the finality of prophethood from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these are all narrations that even reach to us from the Prophet of Allah Salah determine the purpose of mentioning

00:21:30--> 00:22:03

all of this is to simply explain the fact that just as the Prophet of Allah ceylonese him is explaining this, all the prophets of Allah similarly spoke about this final prophet that was to come, the Seal of prophethood, and messenger hood, who was to come Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, they all spoke about him, they all foretold of him. And they all informed us of him. And they informed rather his followers of him. So there's no doubt about the fact that some of these narrations had had remained behind and were still preserved until the coming of the Prophet of Allah Salafi saddam.

00:22:04--> 00:22:24

And so as this time came closer and closer, their anticipation continued to grow, and they continue to inform their followers and their trusted students, that the time is arriving of the coming of this profit of the last times. So much so that it also mentioned that some of the kohan

00:22:25--> 00:22:48

some of the kohan, right, which are off the kohan, which which basically refers to soothsayers or fortune tellers, they even they became a bit curious, and they started to feel that something was up. And the reason for that is that we know that the message of the prophets a lot he said on was also sent to not just the human beings but also to the jinn.

00:22:49--> 00:22:51

So Turgeon speaks about this, we'll go over here in a

00:22:52--> 00:23:28

minute Jin fatale in a semi Ana Parana Japan, right, that the jinn even came in the herd and they listened to the message from the Prophet of Allah sallallahu sallam, and they said that we've heard a very interesting, a very amazing a mind blowing Koran that we've heard. All right, and many different ways sort of La La Cana phenomenal Genie SME owner for an ala Mahabharata who probably wants to do for nama who the owner will accompany him dearly in Fallujah, Pomona, in Assam, IANA Kitab and gentlemen body Musa Musa De Lima, Albania de ja De La La quwata illa for him

00:23:30--> 00:24:05

and sort of de la COVID mentioned as well about the jinn coming to the prophets, a lot of them hearing the message of the Quran, then turning back to a gathering in a group of the jinn and telling them that we've heard an amazing Quran, the same type of message that was sent to Musa alayhis salaam, and it confirms all the previous message of all the previous prophets, and it guides to the truth and it guides to the straight path. So believe in it. So this message was also sent to the gym. But there's something very interesting here. The Djinn just like among human beings are good and there are bad amongst a gender or good bad Well, I'm not mean necessarily whom Amina pasito

00:24:06--> 00:24:46

right there are good jinn and are bad jinn. Now some of the bad jinn what they're up to, or what they, you know, continue to try to do, particularly before the message of the prophets a lot he said before, before the revelation of the Quran began. One very specific bad thing that the jinns would be up to the bajans. Rather, would they would be up to is that they would go and sneak and try to steal literally is called St. Rocco summer, they will try to eavesdrop on the conversation of the melodic and the angels and all the talk that was going on in the heavens, and they would bring this top down and deliver it to the soothsayers and the fortune tellers who would go into these very bad

00:24:46--> 00:25:00

nefarious relationships into these Jin de what are called the shell team, the evil Jin and they would enter into these relationships with them. These Jin de Champlain would give them what they had heard the soothsayers with

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

Then use a little bit of disinformation to try to trick and deceive people into believing what they were saying, and they would corrupt the faith of the people. So this was a standard practice before prophet before the message of the prophets a lot he said before the revelation of the Quran.

00:25:17--> 00:25:40

Some narration speak about when the birth of the prophets of Salaam occurred at that time that this was finished. Some narration say that no, this actually stopped prior to the beginning of the revelation of the Quran. In any case, in either scenario, the soothsayers in the fortune tellers noticed something had changed. They share our theme, we're not bringing to them the information that they used to

00:25:41--> 00:26:28

some books of history even talk about the fact that some of the people who are called the new jumi Yun, like us not not astronomers, but rather astrologers, people that would try to would basically try to derive some type of faith and fortune telling from the position of the stars. So they would study the position of the stars, they started to notice a frequency of what we call shooting stars, because it talks about an azmuth optic will do many militia in the shooting stars being used as a weapon against the shaft lean, the Angels in America would use them as literally like fireballs, that they would launch at the shell team and try to scare them and shoo them away. And so they

00:26:28--> 00:27:02

noticed a greater frequency of disciples shooting stars. And they actually spoke about this amongst each other that have you seen this? They were like, What are you talking about? And then they actually looked and they noticed this, and it also happened to coincide with them not receiving news from the shouting anymore, and they realize something's up. something's about to happen. Something big, we're on the brink of something huge. Otherwise, things would not change this drastically. So you have the Scripture, speaking about the coming of the prophets, a lot of them and there's many different narrations which talk about this. There's a narration a little narration which mentions

00:27:03--> 00:27:15

about one great Jewish worship or who was a knowledge who had a lot of knowledge of ancient scripture, abou I believe his name is Hagar ban, he was known as Abu Habana.

00:27:16--> 00:27:39

He arrived in the city of yesterday, which will later become the city of Medina, but he was from the village of Sham. He was from that that area that was known as a sham, which was a lot nicer of an area, it was a lot more well to do was a lot more better. It had nicer weather, all of these different things. And he came in he arrived in the city of yesterday, later, Medina, and he took up residence there.

00:27:40--> 00:28:13

And the other Jewish tribes knew about him arriving there, but they knew he was very reclusive in nature. So they would leave him alone. But remember, the people of yesteryear, the people of Medina were farmers, their primary means of sustenance, or their, their, their business or industry was agriculture. And they were being afflicted by famine and drought. So they whenever they wouldn't rain for an extended period of time, they would go to a blue Haven, and they would ask him to pray for rain. And no sooner than he would pray for rain,

00:28:14--> 00:28:15

then rain would come.

00:28:17--> 00:28:41

And so the people, obviously the Jewish tribes realize that there was something special about him. And so it said that when he was nearing his death, when he was on his deathbed, and some people came to meet him where he called for some people to him. And he actually spoke to them. And he said, doesn't that make you curious? Why I would leave the beautiful hills of a sham,

00:28:42--> 00:29:00

and the wonderful weather and the beautiful hills and the pleasant lifestyle. And I would come and live here in the middle of the desert, in your terrible city. Because before the prophets, a lot of them migrated to Medina. And that's a story that we'll talk about later in this era. But this area of yesterday wasn't a very

00:29:02--> 00:29:42

it wasn't a place where you wanted to go and live. Like people didn't want to move to yesterday. It wasn't a very sought out after area wasn't a very desirable place to live. And so he's like doesn't does it? Aren't you somewhat curious? Why would leave such a beautiful place and come live here in your terrible city? It doesn't rain here enough. There's a lot of disease here. You know, the weather is kind of rough. Why would I come in live here in my old age especially that's where you retire? Why would I come and live here? Aren't you is someone curious about that? And they're like, Yeah, why did you come here? Instead, I came here, because from the scriptures that I've read, and

00:29:42--> 00:29:45

that I've been taught, I was told that our Prophet is coming.

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

There will be a Prophet of the Last time he will be the seal of Providence. And this is the place where he will migrate to He will make his job. So I came here and in anticipation of his arrival, and I was hoping I hope from a law from God.

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

I would get to live to see the day that he would come. And I would believe in him, and I would follow him. And I would hold, you know, I would place my hands in his hand.

00:30:10--> 00:30:18

But alas, I'm dying and that day hasn't come. So if you live till that day, make sure that you believe in Him and you follow him.

00:30:20--> 00:30:24

And so there are many different stories would speak about incidents in situations like this

00:30:26--> 00:31:06

coming and telling of the foretelling of the coming of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu sallam. There's another narration, which talks about, there's an eye of the Quran that actually speaks about this and sort of to the Baccarat is number 89. Allah says, well, am I a home Kitab woman, they're in denial, he moussaka, Colima, home, that when a book came to them from Allah, and it was confirming that which they already had wakanow min papanui SFT hoonah Allah, Xena cafaro. And even before this book in this Prophet came, they used to go to the people of disbelief, the people of Kufa, the people that did not believe in the prophets in the books of the past, that these people who believed

00:31:06--> 00:31:24

in the prophets in the books of the past, they used to say to the people who did not believe in the prophets in the books of the past, yes after hoonah Allah levena cafaro. They used to tell them that we will join up with this prophet that is yet to come, that is about to come, and we will defeat you.

00:31:26--> 00:32:10

We will join forces with that Prophet that is coming and we will defeat you by joining forces with that profit that is yet to come. For them Ma Ma Fu cafaro V for la magia humara fukasawa v. And then when that finally came to them, what they recognized when that same profit came to them they used they used to talk about when that same scripture in that book that Quran came to them that they used to speak about, God forbid they disbelieved in it. For Allah, Allah tala has caffeine. And Allah says the curse of Allah is upon those people who disbelieve after knowing and after recognizing and after realizing they still display disbelief. And there are many situations, which talk about these

00:32:10--> 00:32:20

types of situations. Mr. malbay huthi, and the different scholars they mentioned this, even our boss or the alumni, I know my mentions candidate in Yahoo behavior to cut a lot fun

00:32:21--> 00:33:02

that the Yahoo that lived at the place of labor, they were at war with the tribes of fun. So whenever they used to meet, they used to actually make dua, and they would pray to Allah. And they used to often be defeated by the tribes of fun. So it said that they used to make dua to Allah, whenever they would meet these tribes have fun in the battlefield with a Oh Allah, we ask you, Oh Allah, the Lord of the Prophet that will be coming in the last times, we asked you to grant his victory whenever they would make dua like this, that they would actually achieve victory, even our best or the alarm monument. He speaks about this, even as half mentions that

00:33:03--> 00:33:37

Selma to blue Salama, who was from the Isle of brother, who is a buttery Sahabi he says that he was a buttery Sahabi but he was from the unsought. So he grew up in Medina in the pre Islamic Medina, he grew up there, he said, we had a neighbor who was Jewish. He belonged to the tribe of Banu Abdullah shall. He was a Jewish man that belonged to the tribe and Elijah. And he said that he he one day came out of his home. And he says, I was very, very young at that time.

00:33:38--> 00:34:06

And he came and he sat down next to us, and I was sitting there as well. And he remembers he says, I still remember I lay a bullet. I was covered with a shawl. I was like a little boy sitting on like the porch of my house, and my family members were sitting around and I was wrapped up in a shawl in a blanket. And I was sitting there and he came and he stood near us, for the Quran, Allah Allah Yama will bath Well, he saw Burmese on well, Jenna whatnot.

00:34:07--> 00:34:30

And he told us about the hereafter. He told us about the Day of Judgment resurrection, he told us about accounting and reckoning. He told us about the scales of the deeds. He told us about paradise. He told us about the fire of hell. He told us about all of this for Fila danika Lee Coleman and Michigan as hobby ozanne. And now your honor and a bath and getting on by the moat.

00:34:31--> 00:34:47

And he was saying all of this to people to us who are machete goon who we used to worship idols. We didn't believe in any of this stuff. We didn't even believe that there was life after death. So he said we start the people the family members said to him, we Hakka funan our Taha in

00:34:49--> 00:34:56

the multi million dollar in fee Hi, Jenna, when are you Jonah? Phoebe Amaya. They were like what's wrong with you, man?

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

You wait, what's wrong with you? Are you stupid or something?

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

thing.

00:35:01--> 00:35:34

Like seriously, bro, like, are you okay? You actually believe in this stuff? You believe in this nonsense. You actually think there's life after death? And that there'll be paradise and there'll be hell and people will get the rewards of their deeds. He said that, um, yes. When living your life will be he. And then he said something very interesting. He said when he said yes now I'm, then he would swear by something I'm not sure what he used to swear by because he's swear by God. He's just swear by Allah and he was like, he would swear whenever you can ever be. And then he always used to swear by someone. I don't remember what it was, but he used to swear by someone. And then later on,

00:35:34--> 00:35:36

of course, he's recalling that he used to take an oath by Allah.

00:35:38--> 00:35:42

Wait, what do anila who and then she used to go on mentioning this.

00:35:43--> 00:35:52

And then he used to tell us about not believing in the fire in the fire of hell. That was a consequence of not believing. And again, the people used to say to him, wait,

00:35:53--> 00:36:06

what's wrong with you, man? Why do you keep talking about this nonsense, all these fairy tales, from Iowa's aliko so they finally said what sign Do you have of this? Like why should we believe that what you were anything that you have to say?

00:36:07--> 00:36:11

So he said Namibian marusan mean that we haven't Beloved,

00:36:12--> 00:36:25

Nabisco my birthday a minute we haven't Beloved. He said there's a prophet who is about to come. And he's gonna come from over here at this direction this region. Well, I shout out BIA de la Mancha.

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

And Selma took no Salama says I remember that he used to point towards Mecca. In the direction of Makkah. He said there's a profit that's going to come from this direction.

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

What am I tattooed

00:36:38--> 00:36:44

for Carla? Another eladia. And then the people said to him, he goes, What can you tell us about him?

00:36:45--> 00:36:48

What can you tell us about him? How can you describe him?

00:36:49--> 00:37:04

So he said, amazingly, this man is Jewish man. He looked at me submittable Salama says, I was, I was a boy. He looked at me. Well, and I mean, I had the themes in them. I was the youngest amongst them. And he looked at me and he said,

00:37:06--> 00:37:49

in in yester feed handle hola Morocco. You recall that if this boy continues to live, like, you know, he gets it's like saying like, if nothing happens to him, as long as he lives and he sees an older age, you'd recall he will see him. He's gonna see him he's gonna find him. Father selima, and then cinema. radi Allahu anhu says for what lucky mother have a nearly one and a half, which is an expression he's saying literally, Some time passed. Hi, Tabatha. Tabatha, la hora Sula, who were who were Hey you and Bina other Medina. And he said, finally that day came and I remember that day came that went to law center profits, a lot of meaning. when when when that said that he sent the profits

00:37:49--> 00:38:04

a lot of money. He gave him Prophethood. That prophet who was bestowed divine revelation was sent to Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, whoa, hey, you may have been alluding to this where it gets very interesting. And he says that neighbor of ours, a Jewish neighbor of ours, he was still alive.

00:38:05--> 00:38:10

The profits are some arrived and that man was still alive for I'm gonna be here we believed in him.

00:38:11--> 00:38:16

We believed in the profits a lot he sent them wakatobi he buggy and was hidden.

00:38:17--> 00:38:38

And that neighbor didn't believe in him. But he and out of rebelliousness has had an out of hatred, envy, jealousy, animosity. He didn't believe in the amount of jealousy for Punahou. And he says, because I remember that conversation, I went to him and he said to him, way, Hakka, funan again, they're saying the same thing. Then they say, what's wrong with you, man?

00:38:40--> 00:38:43

What's wrong with you? Like seriously, What's up with you?

00:38:44--> 00:38:47

Unless the bill is equal telenovela.

00:38:49--> 00:39:10

Unless the Villa de Paul, Jelena FEMA, aren't you the same guy that told us about him about the Messenger of Allah what you had told us about him? Like you're the one who told us about him? Way back in the day. Karla Bella, he said, Yep, that's right. I am that same guy who told you about him? Well, I can later be, but it wasn't this guy that I was talking about.

00:39:12--> 00:39:40

Yes, I'm the same one that told you about the Prophet that was coming. But it wasn't this guy, which basically means I didn't expect it to be him. And of course, the whole process. The whole problem was that the Prophet of Allah loves him was Arab, and did not belong to the Jewish tribes. And that was their problem. That was the issue that they had. But nevertheless, he says, Yeah, I'm the same one told you about the profit and loss and I didn't expect it to be him. That's not the guy I was talking about. Mr. Mohammed mentions this same narration in his Muslim.

00:39:41--> 00:39:46

Similarly, another narration that Abu no I mentioned in his book, Delilah Buddha.

00:39:47--> 00:40:00

He actually also mentions the same story, but this time he mentions the name of that Jewish neighbor whose name was you shot, which is the name of a prophet that we are talking

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

About from the faucet and from a Hadith, that you shall be known who was a prophet of Allah, that that man that Jewish man was named Lucia after our Prophet, and he was the one that told them about him. But when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came, he did not end up believing in the Prophet of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam, very unfortunately. So

00:40:21--> 00:40:30

this was something that started to occur closer and closer to the actual beginning of revelation that these, this chapter in this talk started to talk a little bit more.

00:40:31--> 00:41:12

And I wanted to end today's session by telling the story, the very beautiful, somewhat lengthy, detailed story, but I'll kind of go through this as quick as I can. It's the story that is mentioned by evenness, Hawk, and many others. It's mentioned by Eamon Bahati, but a more abbreviated shortened version is mentioned by mom bucatini my Muslim, but the more extended narrations are mentioned by other scholars of Hadith and Sierra. And that is a story of the acceptance of Islam by Sandman and fallacy radi Allahu anhu, even though he accepts Islam much later, right, immediately after the his route on migration to Medina. So that story could also be mentioned at that point in time in our

00:41:12--> 00:41:55

discussion in this era. And we'll definitely bring it up at that time. But I mentioned it here because his story, the bulk of the story actually talks about his pre Islamic experiences, which tell us a little bit about this same dynamic, the same age issue of there being few very few rare scattered individuals who were talking about the coming of the prophets of Solomon were anticipating the beginning of divine revelation at the end of times upon this Prophet of the Last Times. So Solomon and Farsi radi Allahu anhu actually talks about, he says that come to Roger and pharmacy and Minelli us behind that I was from the people of us behind which was a major region from these

00:41:55--> 00:41:56

Persian regions.

00:41:57--> 00:42:00

And he said that I belong to a town that was called Hate,

00:42:02--> 00:42:26

hate, it was called that and that was the name of the little town that I belong to. And he said, My father was the leader of our town. He was like the mayor of our town. He was a leader of our people. And he said, I was the most beloved thing to my father in this world, going to a hub buchalka he, I was the most beloved of a last creation to him. My my father didn't love anything in this room more than he loves me. And he said, but because of that,

00:42:28--> 00:42:57

he I had the habits and aefi Beatty, Kamata area. And he said that my father loved me so much that he was a little bit overprotective of me, to the point where he would keep me locked up, or keep me kind of huddled up inside the house, kind of like you would do with a young girl. Right? Like you can't you like like a father is kind of paranoid about his young daughter. He said, that's how my father was with me. So he kind of, you know, was a little bit overprotective of me. And that's how I was raised.

00:42:58--> 00:43:37

And he said, because of that, like, I didn't really have much else to do, I didn't have any outdoor type activity, my father would dare never let me travel or do anything else. So what I primarily used to do was I just used to worship a lot, filmer juicio, which the Huntsville Medusa is I so, you know, fire worship, I just mostly used to dedicate myself to fire worship, which was the religion of our family and our people. So much so that it was my responsibility to keep the fire burning. It was my responsibility to not let the fire go out. And he actually talks about how he used to take cotton and kind of twist it up into these little balls. And it was his job to kind of keep dropping those

00:43:37--> 00:44:07

little balls of cotton in there, periodically, like kind of like every hour on the hour type of thing to make sure that the fire would continue burning. And that was my job and my responsibility, somewhat so that one day my father told me that look, and this was very difficult for him. He didn't like to send me out on tasks. But he told me that look, somebody owes me some money. I'm supposed to pick up a payment from somewhere. I'm very busy, my hands are full. I got a lot going on. I'm going to trust you. I'm going to give you the responsibility to go and collect that payment.

00:44:09--> 00:44:10

Don't disappoint me.

00:44:11--> 00:44:49

Go straight there, get the money and come back. Don't spend the money. Don't stop to do anything with the money. Just come right back. Please come right back. And he talks about how he emphasized to me Don't get distracted. Because then if I have to come looking for you have to drop everything else I'm doing and that's a pain. I don't have time for that. I wouldn't even I don't even like sending you up but I got no other choice. So go. So he says I was going there from Morocco because he said to mean Can I in his main canal is in the Sala I passed by a Christian like, if you will a monastery. I passed by a church like a Christian monastery where they were worshiping. And they were

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

praying for Samir to a sweater whom FEMA will whom you saloon, and I heard them praying and worshiping will come to LA Dyneema Andrew nasod I didn't know what's up with these people.

00:45:00--> 00:45:15

And so, for lemma semirara to us what the hell to Allah him I entered in under the Meisner on and I started watching them for tomorrow each of whom are Giovanni Salah to whom when I saw them praying I was I was amazed by it. I was amazed by

00:45:16--> 00:45:31

and he said what I have to feel what I was able to feed him and I liked what they were doing. Well cool to have our lucky fatale Mina, Dina Latina ra that their religion is better than the religion that we practice. And he said that I stayed with them until evening time.

00:45:32--> 00:46:08

And finally, when they finished, I asked them in a slew how the deen were where where do you Where did you learn this from? So he said be Shang from the village of Shan from the Syrian region. That's where we got it from. So I finally went back to my father, I picked up the payment. And I went back to my father. When I went back there, I found that my father was already out and about running around looking for me. And he said that, where were you? I told you not to get lost. I told you not to get caught up in something You ruined my whole day. So he said, I told my father, but to be honest, he knew saloon if he can. He can. He sat in the home I passed by some people who are

00:46:08--> 00:46:15

worshipping in their little place of worship. And it was amazing. And I stayed with them and what they do is a lot better than what we do.

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

And

00:46:18--> 00:46:22

he said that for how funny my father he kind of scared me.

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

You know, he not like scared me meaning either he frightened me. Either. He threatened me he got upset with me or he frightened me in regards to these people tried to frighten me. And he said, No, no, no, you're going to practice a religion of your forefathers. I don't want to hear this nonsense. Absolutely not. What Jana fiendishly Hayden, and he put kind of like a shackle around my leg around my foot. And he basically chained me up in the house, he couldn't find me to the home.

00:46:47--> 00:47:23

So I sent a message to those same people that I had met worshiping there, that if you hear about some people who are going to be traveling to a shop or door coming from a shop, and are going to be going back to a shop, let me know, until finally some businessmen came from a shop. And I and I, and they sent me the message that some people from a shop come. So I said, Okay, the day that they are go heading back to a sham, let me know, send me another message. So when that day finally arrived, that they were going to be leaving back to a sham, they sent me the message, I picked a lock of the chain that my father had chained me up in, and I ran away from home. And I joined up with these

00:47:23--> 00:47:56

businessmen, I had a little bit of money, I gave it to them. So please take me with you. And they took me back to a shop. When I got there. I asked for Who is the most pious, righteous man, the most knowledgeable about this religion, this new religion that I wanted to learn Christianity, and he told me about a man. So I went there, and I asked him, can I live with you? Can I learned from you can I worship with you is like, sure, but you got to help me out. You got to work with me. You got to work for me. And that's fine. So I said, Okay. He says, The problem is that I found out that this guy was like the most terrible human being alive. He used to collect money from people saying it was

00:47:56--> 00:48:28

for charity for donation. And then he used to hoard all this money himself, and he buried it, behind the monastery behind the church, and you would bury all of that. And he was hoarding all this money for himself. And I used to see him doing it. And I couldn't take it anymore. I couldn't tolerate it anymore. So finally I went to the people. I said, Hey, by the way, you know, this guy that you give all the money to this priest right here? Yeah, he takes all your money, and he keeps it for himself. He doesn't give it to no poor people. So he said, they stormed in there, and they and I showed him where the money wasn't. They dug up the money, and they found all the gold and all the silver buried

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

there. So then they took this guy. And they said that I swear to God, nobody's gonna bury this guy. And they basically hung him up. They hung him, they killed him, and they strung him up as an example. And nobody buried him. They left their body, his body there to just rock to make an example out of him. Now they needed to replace him with another priest. So they found another priest.

00:48:49--> 00:49:09

When they found this other priest, then Sandman and Farsi, or the loved one who says he turned out to be the most amazing person I ever knew in my entire life. He was remarkable. He was just absolutely amazing. I learned so much from us honest, he was trustworthy. And I stayed with him. And I learned from him and I benefited from him until the time came when he was dying.

00:49:10--> 00:49:50

So I sat by him by his deathbed, and I said, I learned so much from you. But I experienced some bad company before you tell me about somebody who I can go to who's just like you. So he told me, okay, this and this and this and such place, you'll find somebody, go to him, he's a good guy. You can trust him. So I went to that person. And I found him to be one of the best people I've ever met. And I learned from him a priest, I worship with him. I learned from him. I was just I was a student and his follower, and I stayed with him until he was about to die. And then I asked him, I said, please direct me to somebody else that I can study with after you. And he directed me to another person,

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

and I went to that person. And he literally says this continued to happen until three or four different priests that I went to, and they would send me to somebody else that they said I could trust

00:50:00--> 00:50:42

I was with the last guy that I was with, and in a place named moody. And I stayed with him until he was about to die. And same thing I asked him, you know, who can I go to? And he said that there's nobody else left for you to go to. There's nobody else that I can recommend for you to go to nobody else that's left. But instead, what you need to do now is you need to go to a very specific land. And he described the area he said, it's in this region, and he described he pointed me in the direction of ages, Arabia, and he said, You go there to the place where they farm and they do agriculture, particularly date palms, and day trees. I don't know the name of the place, but that's

00:50:42--> 00:50:47

what it's going to look like. You go there, and you'll find the people there that are mostly idle worshiping,

00:50:48--> 00:51:32

and you go and you wait there because the profit of the last time is about to come. And when this profit of the last time will come. Let me tell you about some signs about him Allah Mata Latifah, some signs that cannot be hidden yaku hadiah he will accept gifts, when I could do sadaqa but he will not take anything from charity for himself. He will not consume he will not eat any type of charity baina Cafe he caught a MANOVA between his shoulder blades, you will see the seal of prophethood for in this data and tell how pibil can be not fall into if you can go to this place that I'm describing. Go there and stay there until this prophet comes to the place he will migrate

00:51:32--> 00:51:47

to this place and go and wait there for him through Mamata wahoo Eva, and he said that this priest also died. And I sat there waiting, waiting, waiting until some businessmen came and I had a little bit of money and I asked them Can you take me with you?

00:51:48--> 00:52:18

So they said sure. And they took me with me. They took me with them until they got to a place and a point near Arabia and their alimony. They did something terrible to me. They basically locked me up shackled me up, I didn't have any support anything. No defense, I was in the middle of these people. They shackled me up, they locked me up. And they basically sold me off as a slave in the marketplace. And I got sold as a slave in and I was sold to a person who lived a little bit outside of Medina.

00:52:19--> 00:53:03

Until one day, the guy who had bought me his cousin came to him and he's sold me to his cousin and his cousin was from the Jews of binocular Eva, who are Medina and Jews. And he took me to Medina. And he said, No sooner did I arrive in Medina and I looked around and I knew I was where I needed to be. I recognize and I said yes, this is where I need to be. So I was okay. I was content even though I was in slavery wrongfully. But I was content because I was where I needed to be. And he says one day I was up in the trees, kind of like fixing and cutting and mending you know, doing taking care of the trees basically doing long work, landscaping work. I was up in the trees working. And one of

00:53:03--> 00:53:11

the guy who owned me now, one of his one of his cousin's comes to him and says that, man, something amazing has happened.

00:53:13--> 00:53:43

Or rather, the expression that he used me is basically said that we might be in some trouble. Something big is happening, we might be in some trouble. And he says what's going on? And he says that all these Arabs, all these idol worshippers, all these Arabs, osom Hassan, they're all gathering outside of Medina at the place of Buddha. Because a man has come there who claims to be a prophet. And they've all gone out there to welcome him and wait for him and go and meet him. And he said, as soon as I heard that, I almost fell out of the tree.

00:53:44--> 00:54:11

Like I was so I it caught me off guard that shocked me, I almost fell out of the tree. He says I got down and I started saying, Martha Martha, would you say what do you say? Until he said that my owner he slapped me really hard. And he said Get back to work none of your business? What do you want to talk to him for get back to work? So he said, Okay, I waited some time. And I had a discount, you know, scavenged up a little bit of money that I could. And I went outside of Medina to the place of Kobe, and I saw the profits a lot easier.

00:54:12--> 00:54:39

And I bought some stuff like some fruits or something. And I went in, I presented it to the prophets a lot. He said them and I said, this is sadaqa. And I know that you have some poor people with you, that are more need in need of this that I am. So there's some charity from South Africa. And he said I kind of went out a distance and I stood there. And I watched until I saw him call it some of the Sahaba the poor Sahaba and he gave them to Southern Thai and he gave it all of them to him and he didn't eat any of it himself.

00:54:40--> 00:54:59

So then he said I had to go back and I had to I was a slave. So I tried to gather a few pennies here and there.
