Mr. miletti went from the lower salatu salam ala rasulillah, Allah, Allah, he was a big marine. So as I was just mentioning, Hamdulillah, we've reached a point in the life of the study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, where we've talked about the beginning of Revelation, of course, a landmark event of the opening of the doors of divine revelation. So that that, that that message or that communication, which would occur from the heavens to the earth, by means of the
prophets and the MBR, Anakin wasallam, that door was reopened, that channel was reestablished, in the form in the shape of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so one thing that we discussed a few times I brought it up a few times was that when revelation came upon the Prophet, sallAllahu, Alayhi, wasallam. And revelation started up again, if this was the first time in over 600 years, according to us, it's the first time in over 600 years, that revelation was occurring. So this is a huge event. This is a landmark event, anytime revelation occurs, of course, it's life changing, it's life altering, it changes the world as we know it. And especially this is the
finality of prophethood. This is the finality of the message from Allah. So of course, this is going to be very, very, this is a huge occurrence. But when you take into consideration that for over 600 years, no revelation has occurred, no prophet has walked the face of the earth, that makes it even that much more grander of an event. And so that major event took place, the first revelation came the impact of that on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi. Salaam, personally, and what effect it had on him and how Allah subhanaw taala actually accommodated him, Allah subhanaw taala actually provided time for him to be able to embrace this experience, internalize exactly what had occurred with him.
And then for him to be able to go forward from there having processed and understood exactly what is at stake, what is at hand, and what exactly is transpiring here at this very moment.
We then that accommodation from Allah subhanaw taala is what is called full throttle, why? It was basically a pause in Revelation. And we discussed that length deposit in Revelation, exactly what it means, what transpired and what exactly happened. And then in the very last session that we had before this, we talked about the types of Revelation, not just the types, but the means the protection, the the the how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was taught to process the revelation and internalize revelation, and basically what to do with it once that revelation had occurred. So we talked about all of that, where we're at right now in the life of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm
in the Sierra, is that revelation, as the famous narration goes, I mentioned this narration at the at the end of the previous session, through metadata, but I'll walk you through metadata. So metadata, but then the Sahaba Radhika laguan, whom, who narrated this about the prophets a lot, he said them, they then say, and then after that the revelation that what he became a regular occurrence, then irregularly consistently continued from there. And it did not stop it did not cease until, of course, the end of the life of the Prophet salani Selim. And there were certain moments in times like we know that that will eventually come up in the cedaw, which is basically the sebulba
newzoo, the circumstances of revelation behind SoTL calf and other Ayat of the Quran, that there was a pause for some report, 12 days, 15 days, 16 days, that was there. Even I mentioned in the previous session that even after this revelation now continued, you know, continuously successively, it continued. At that point in time, there was a there was a time of a few days, a couple of days, in which actually the Profit System became very, Ill became very sick. And at that point in time, Revelation paused once again, but it paused only for a couple of days. And in fact, more than anything else, you know, one of the goals and the objectives in this session is to humanize the
profits, a lot of them and understand the effect of this on the profits or settlement, how we can connect and relate to these experiences of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. One of the things we talked about revelation is when revelation would occur, when it would come down on the process and it was very heavy, physically was a lot to bear for him. And we talked about how this makes us admire the profits a lot he sent him because in spite of our heavy and difficult it was physically on him. This was something that he board this was something that he dealt with, for our sake, that he never asked the last person
Tell us and make it stop. He never said Oh Allah please make it stop. I can't take it anymore because he knew that if the prophets Allah Mason was willing to make the sacrifice of physically bearing the weight of divine revelation, the Word of God in us annuity Allah Colin subpoena, that all of humanity would benefit because of that message. And that's the sacrifice that he took, that he made, that that's a hit that he took. And so this is from the kindness, the benevolence of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him.
So when the Prophet says I'm actually became very physically ill, it is on the mercy and the blessing of Allah, that revelation pause for a couple of days to allow the process to physically recuperate. And once he had recovered, then the first revelation that came was very beautifully well how relaly is as a jar, Mauer dakara bucola McCullough, and that that revelation of pseudo to Doha came down talking about the Brit, the brilliance of daytime, and the sun reaching going towards its peak and daylight filling the entire earth when they leave us. And then the night when it has fully taken over and has become calm and peaceful. Moua. dakara bucola. Allah, that first you experienced
brilliance, then you experienced a little bit of quiet and a little bit of you know that that lack of that revelation is described as a night when it's become quiet. But realize one thing This was done for your own good, Mauer dakara bucola Allah, your Lord has not abandoned you, nor is he upset with you in the least bit. So then revelation from your own continued. So aside from these occasional pauses of this nature, generally speaking, Revelation continued from here on out.
Now, if revelation continued from here on out, then what exactly is the next stage what occurred in the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? One of the first initial revelations was we talked about this in the last session that it was it cannot be smaller because it Falak according to many scholars of aluminum Quran, the second revelation was similar to the palemoon Valhalla Mahamaya Suma and Sabina Amati. Rebecca June. Well in Nicola geranyl, a Roman numeral in Nicola Allah Filipina that the process was again consoled by Allah said that this is this this revelation is put on, this is something you're writing history here, history is being written here. Well, let me remind my
enterpreneur material because imagine you haven't lost your mind. Have confidence Allah is taking care of you. And this is where the blessing of Allah This is the blessing of your Lord. What
if you can stick with this and see this through there is a reward that awaits you that will never end that will never cease that will never discontinue what Allah Allah for looking at him and what you have to remember from here on out that what is about to come your way maybe you don't even realize but just know this much. You know, when you sometimes give somebody some instruction and say, Look, I you know, there's a lot of things that are yet to unfold that are yet to transpire, but I just want to remember one thing to follow through with in with everything else, no matter what comes your way there's one thing you can't forget that one thing that Allah subhanaw taala told the
system to never let go of to never forget was his character and as a flock, no matter what comes your way.
Well in Nicola Allah for Luca now Do you remember you keep in mind you never let go of the character that Allah has given you. Because that's going to be instrumental. That's going to make sure you never lose yourself in the process. You remember who you are and how you're meant to conduct yourself. So this was the second revelation. According to many of the scholars the third revelation was written Muslim men
Yeah, you l Muslim millou como la la la cadena. Then he was told, okay, now what do you need to do? First and foremost, you need to make sure that everything that continues, everything that happens from here on out is built on a solid foundation.
And there's one foundation that is our relationship with Allah.
That is our relationship with Allah. Unfortunately many times today and it's in the era of intellectual ism. And this is affecting the Muslim community no doubt as well. We obsess about intellectual ism at the same time, knowledge to us is paramount. We have to understand knowledge is only a means to an end. Knowledge is not the objective
of Allah subhanaw taala before before most majority of the Quran has been revealed very little has been revealed.
Even at that time, Allah subhanaw taala first thing is instructing him to do, como la la la cadena stand up and pray to your Lord throughout the night. That's what everything else that is going to come after. This is only meant to strengthen your relationship with Allah. It is only meant for you to go out and establish a relationship for the people with the lowest power to connect them to Allah subhanho wa Taala spirituality is key. So in art, this is an educational forum. So I say this very with this in mind. I advise myself before anyone else that this this
is an educational program we're talking about the car we're studying the seat off, but what we have to understand is our relationship with a lot is the objective here. If we listen and we can attend if we study in depth seat of the profits a lot aeternum very academic, very detailed, very thorough, etc. But whatever the descriptions we can give it, but if this does not result in me becoming stronger in my relationship with the law, it's in vain.
It's a lot of talk it's a lot of words that's all it ends up being.
And so we have to keep that in mind. So the third revelation was establish a relationship with Allah from build your foundation first connect with Allah and let everything else follow after that because then everything will make sense as the other thing as the other thing everything else that is about to come your way the only way that will make sense if you're looking at it through the right lens if you got the right filters on you got the right lenses on and that lens is relationship with the law spirituality
the fourth revelation yeah you ending with death on for under Rebecca cabin with the avocado here. What would you say? Well
you know certain was I mean, I talked about how sort of two sort of column we're in Nicola Allah for Luca now been talked about the character of the process of emphasize that flap, character, the third revelation, emphasize the flop. What did he say was Jerome heteronomy first bill sovereign jameelah.
That it told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be patient on with phosphate Allah Maya, una bajo Mahajan, Jamila, be patient on what they say and leave them to Allah with only while mocha DVM.
Let me deal with these people who reject you refuse you or deal wrongly with you. But you got to maintain your character. You got to maintain your standard, the fourth revelation sort of modesitt.
So rotten wood that is sutra number 74. Yeah, you would death it. So again, the profit of the process of is addressed as the one who has himself wrapped up foam for under stand up.
Now it's time it's a call to action, the first call to action was stand up and pray. Now the second call to action now that you've prayed and you know what's going on here, gotten funded and worn,
worn. And we talked about the meaning of worn in the last session, it means to caution someone about something that could be harmful to them out of love and concern for that person. So for undid, it, says Warren, who doesn't who don't warn, it does not mention the object, warn anyone and everyone.
you're meant to warn the whole world what Rebecca Campbell
and proclaim the greatness only of your Lord, meaning that's the gist of the message. We there are so many things that you know, this is something very important. One of one one of the key aspects that we're trying to focus on in this series on the life of the Prophet system is extracting the lessons and implementing them, detailing how we can implement this in our lives. From the very beginning of the revelation till the very end of the revelation.
The message was always consistent. The goal, the objective of the message was to connect people to a law, like we just talked about, what you proclaim the greatness of your Lord. That's what you're meant to do. That's the objective. What can we learn from that?
What we need to learn from that is any type of initiative that we have an Islamic initiative that our initiative that we have, no matter what the nature of it might be, no matter what the methodology of it may be, no matter what the means of delivering that data to someone might be, it does not matter. There's a bottom line. And there's only one bottom line. And that is connecting people to Allah.
The second that any type of initiative, organization, Association, whatever else, there may be, anytime it advocates, anytime its objective becomes anything other than connecting people to Allah, it is no longer calling to Allah. It's no longer called Dawa. We got to call it something else. We gotta call it something else. It could be social, it could be business, it could be money, I don't care.
But it's not called dow anymore.
That's one thing we have to be clear about. And this is not so that I can sit here and say, Okay, now let me think what organizations can I think of, so I can critique them and see if they're actually down or not? That's not my role. Allah is the judge. None of us are in that capacity. None of us are judge, jury, executioner. We're all on trial before a lot. What I need to do is I need to check myself. What am I involved with and what is my bottom line? What is my objective? What is my goal? That's what I have to check. So we're apocrypha be proclaimed the greatness only of your Lord. Speak of the greatness of in the grandeur of your
with the yarmulke photo here.
And then our last lesson, something very interesting to the process of, he said in your clothes, purify them,
in your clothes purify them.
This is, you know, the Quran from the beauty and the majesty in the eloquence of the book of Allah
is that there are so many different so many things are implied at the same time, so many layers to everything Allah subhanaw taala says.
So the very basic message as you can hear in your clothes, clean them, purify in your clothes clean, its purified. What does that mean? First and foremost, what that is addressing is that anyone that is engaged in this message needs to first and foremost make sure that they are presentable before the people
because the second you step out, now, the second you are doing Tao now the second that you are preaching and teaching now you represent something
you represent something for us as a minority here in this country, it is very important that we understand we represent Islam we represent a lion is messenger, we represent the Quran, we represent the deen.
So we have to be presentable at all times. And I'm not just talking about presentable like, we just got to put on a nice suit and the rest is done. So let me put on a nice suit and and slap a couple of people and then call a bunch of people like terrible names and act like a jerk. And that's all good because I'm wearing a nice suit. So 100 law, that don't fly, don't work that way. But it needs to be presentable is everything in anything, how I conduct myself how I behave, how I manage my behavior is all representative of, of, you know who I am and what I'm doing. And so we have to cleanse ourselves. And the Prophet system is again, I told you that that character was emphasized in
the second third, and now and the fourth revelation again. So this is talking about a clock and character, how you conduct yourself how you present yourself, how you go out there and you deal with people. You got to clean that up, you got to purify that because you are representing something with the avoca football head, what rude his or her job.
And then Allah subhanaw taala doesn't leave anything to mystery. He says what roots is a factor there again many layers and understanding to this as well. rouges according because of other places in the Quran as well. So some of them have us they don't say this refers to schicke. And that definitely could be implied that definitely is implied without a doubt. But at the same time, we also have to take it for a little more, we'll be able to be your own level, we also have to take it at, you know, from the basic the literal meaning of it, roads is anything filthy. And also when we look in the Arabic language that routes, leads, even would also refer to like foul mouth behavior
like foul speech, bad behavior, bad type of talk, shamelessness, obscene, obscene talk and obscene behavior. So the process is being told that there's a lot of things that you are going to have to give up now. Not to say that the processor did do those things from before, but they don't matter. You know how sometimes when somebody advises us we get very, like bent out of shape. We get very insulted like if you joined our committee and somebody says okay, this you got to do this you got to do that you got can't do this. You can't what what are you trying to say, brother?
What are you trying to say you're trying to do that stuff. I don't do that stuff. We get all bent out of shape. This is Muhammad Rasulullah salatu salam, Assad. alameen is the most honorable man so honorable that his enemies would testify to his honor and his dignity
and his chestnuts and his behavior and his quality.
His enemies would speak of his quality.
So of course, the prophet of Allah loves him never had. And we talked about this in the sceeto how throughout his childhood in his youth, a lot, divinely protected him from falling into anything wayward. But nevertheless, here Allah subhanaw taala sang the process that I'm that all these bad types of things. Gotta give it up. You got to start there and completely give it up is no longer an option, you will be pushed to your limits.
But that will not be an option for you what roods is a factor? When I tell non testex they're
not only that, but on top of that Allah subhanaw taala tells the prophets a lot he tell him when I tell him
when I tell him, nor you are about to embark on a great mission, you will be the means you will be the cause you will be the channel by means of which people will find salvation, people will find success. People will succeed in this life and in the Hereafter, you will be a means of great head for millions and today we know billions of people. But don't you dare ever hang it over anyone's head. Don't you dare ever think you've done anyone a favor. Again, for any one of us at any level that has any Islamic work that has any dogma that does anything to represent Islam, to spread Islam to teach Islam at any level. We
You have to undertake, we don't do nobody, we don't do nothing a favor.
We haven't done anything to hang our hat on. We have no right to claim some type of, you know, props or rights for ourselves.
We have to understand that yes, we are very grateful we should be appreciative of a lot. We should be thankful to Allah. But there's a there's a line. We should never let that type of great gratitude and appreciation to Allah cross into the area of arrogance. I do this and I do that, and I do this. The second we start to list our accolades. The second we start to claim something for ourselves. There's a problem here. Once again, now I'm not doing Darwin anymore. I'm doing something else. I'm a marketer, an advertiser, a businessman, something something a politician, I don't know.
But all I know is I'm not doing Dawa at that point, well, I don't, so don't you dare ever do this. So, this was the fourth revelation from Allah subhanaw taala. And again, it emphasized the character for the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, now that the prophets Islam has been given the task, preach,
preach. Now what exactly transpired from here on out. What I'd like to do here is kind of interject something kind of an analysis, an overview of this issue. We talked about the types of Revelation, the stages morality, we talked about the stages of Revelation. But I'd like to take this opportunity to do now is to talk about the stages of the preaching the message, the stages of the calling to Islam, the calling to Allah Marathi Buddha. I'd like to take this opportunity to do that.
Many different scholars have discussed this Marathi with our mama raha the different stages and phases of the mission, the cause the call to Allah, have discussed this at different levels. It was Rahim Allah, which Allah in his book on the life of the prophets, Allah
has actually categorized it very, very well. So I'm gonna go ahead and borrow from here. Even Kalyan Rahim, Allah categorizes them in five different stages, five different phases. Number one is he says a new Buddha. Number one was just the bestowing of prophethood. He says this is a stage in and of itself, where the profits awesome is given Prophethood he is first given revelation, he has allowed time to kind of come to terms with it, he has allowed time to internalize it to become one with it.
And this in and of itself is a stage and a phase that in and of itself, why does he say this is a stage and a phase of prophethood or of the Tao of the message? I'll explain in just a little bit once I kind of get through this little introduction here. Number two is in that rocky Rocky Hill, aka Robin ethany. In that rocky Rocky Hill, aka Robin, he says the second phase or stage of the preaching of the message and the mission is to warn the close tribes people, the prophets, a lot of Sims, close tribesmen, tribes people, meaning Balu, Hashem, and even parish at some level.
Or rather, we should say just below Hashem to begin with. But
as Sally said, the third level is he says, in that only he is to preach to his people to warn these people and that is Quraysh numurkah coration, the people of McCain General
robbia. In that poem in my attack women led him in probably the fourth phase of the preaching of the message is to warn the people that no warner had ever come to them before him. Well, Humala, Ira potrebbe, and they were basically the entire area of the Arabs. That entire Arab region, the Arabs in general, so moving beyond the people of Mecca, because the people of Makkah, there was a precedence. There was a history of the message in Mecca. I mean, beta lacava is there. Ibrahim is married. And he was Salam. In fact, when we talked about this, one of the sessions that we had, I think it was session number 23. That we talked about the history of the cabin, the history of the
Kaaba, we actually talked about how their narrations would say that how many hundreds and 1000s of prophets and messengers actually came to and visited the bay to love the Kaaba and worship there and the tawaf of the Kaaba. This was almost like something that prophets and messengers, so many hundreds and 1000s of them had come into this. So many different prophets and messengers had come there at that place before, but then moving outside of Morocco to the overall general region of the Arabs, then many, many of these regions no prophet no messenger had ever come to before. This is evidenced by the Quran as well, where Allah subhanho wa Taala told the Prophet salallahu alaihe
salam in the mid mccunn era, halfway through the mccunn period, Allah subhanaw taala told him
profits or sentiments surah number 36,
zero Poma my own there are about one form of Elune that, you know, the Arabs outside of Makkah, were even more stubborn. You know, we oftentimes when we talk about stubbornness, and the most stubborn people, the Prophet says I must have dealt with. Oftentimes, we assume that is probably the place that people have mcha.
And they were very stubborn, they were very hard to deal with many of them. You know, so much so that they accepted Islam at the conquest of Makkah. Time and time again, they were at odds with the problem, they butted heads with the prophet to lamesa.
But in spite of that, the Arabs that were outside of Morocco were even more stubborn than the Arabs of Makkah than the pradesh because even after the prophets a lot, he said, I'm after Pradesh, and even many of them accepted Islam, even outside of Mecca, many of them has still not accepted Islam at the time of the passing of the prophets, a lot of them and even those tribes outside of Makkah, who had accepted Islam before the passing of the process of as soon as the promises on pass, they immediately turned back. The apostate did and in fact aim to launch an attack on Mecca and Medina to try to Iraq to try to basically defeat the Muslims and take care of Islam. At that point. All those
tribes are kind of been biding their time and still not accepted Islam. As soon as the process and path they basically allied with those other tribes and they tried to attack the Muslims again. And that's when Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu created a unified front and basically, you know, repelled that that major threat, but it goes to show you the Koran talks about this and sort of two Toba, which was revealed towards the end of the life of the prophets a lot, it's um, it's a lake Medina and pseudo
shadow front when the Falcon, that these outer line tribes, these Bedouin tribes, these nomadic tribes in Arabia, that they are the most severe when it comes to their hypocrisy and their disbelief, and their animosity towards a lion is messenger and the Muslims. So, Allah subhanaw taala, however, tells the process of incivility as seen in sort of number 36, that we want you to understand exactly why they are the way that they are.
Why this situation is lead to zero karma, because you are warning people that their forefathers had never been warned, for who have known and that's why you find them so difficult to communicate with. That's why they're so hard to talk to, because they never, their forefathers never even received a message. There's nothing that these people, Lord that or previous generations have ever interacted with something like this. So you got to understand where they're coming from. But nevertheless, so the fourth phase of the Prophet of the preaching of the message was to now communicate the message to those underlying people will call me sir, in damage me a man Bulava to whom in a genuine insula
aka da. And the fifth phase of the Prophet hood was to now warn each and every single person that that a well was meant for that it reaches from human beings, I mean from the Djinn. And those were many of the letters of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and the lasting legacy, the fervor the confidence, the commitment that he left behind in the oma starting with the generation of the Sahaba, or the local unknown, who are committed to take this message to the four corners of the world. There are stories there are actual narrations about Sahaba de la on whom I forget the name of this great Sahabi May Allah forgive me, but I forget the name of this greater hobbit or the Aloha
mahalo, who basically traveled with the message all throughout North Africa, till he finally reached the sea, the ocean after crossing through magnet about for crossing through modern day Morocco, until he finally reached the sea and the ocean. And it said that he walked his horse actually into the water to the water and reach the chest of the horse. And the horse could not go further into the water and he said, Oh Allah, I've come as far as I can.
I've come as far as I can.
And as far as I can see, I don't see anything beyond here. But if I knew something was beyond there, someone was beyond the Allah I would explore my means to try to take the message beyond here.
These were the Sahaba radi Allahu Allah, may Allah be pleased with them. So this, that the process of them that is that is the legacy of Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. This is a phase of his mission and his preaching that he prepared and left people behind to continue on preaching and teaching and spreading this message far and wide.
And we are all a product of that. We're all a product of that sitting here today. So this is a little bit of a breakdown of the different phases. And now just to kind of talk about and discuss, you know, how long each of them lasted.
So the very first phase that we talked about just Nobu I just coming to terms with profit, and that was basically the profits awesome, just internalizing the message. And then immediately obviously, this is a major life changes.
major change of lifestyle. So obviously the professor some is sharing quietly, what has transpired with him what is occurring with him with the people in his home and the people closest, nearest and dearest to him. And this lasted basically three years, where the profitsystem was just himself coming to terms with this, implementing the message, and obviously sharing what was going on with him to the people who were immediately around him and the people that were close to him. And this lasted the first three years in Mecca.
The second phase that we talked about now, when he started teaching and preaching the message to at least the new hardship
this or even though Croatia at some level, then this basically continued on till the hedger or the migration, the first the next 10 years, until you would finally leave Makkah to go to Medina. So he was told to now he was openly preaching openly talking about Islam, but they were told to not retaliate, to not respond physically to no matter what level of aggression, the phrase urban Ohashi might commit. But they he was just told to continue to preach, talk about the message and do what he could do, until migration finally occurred. The third phase now to warn the overall Quraysh and his people that was basically after the migration, and this lasted till the Treaty of who they be. And
now, one extra, one extra thing was added now to the overall scope of the preaching and teaching of the message, that the prophets a lot of assemblers now permitted to retaliate and to respond to aggression with similar aggression,
the fourth phase of the prophethood, that with the preaching of the message that we talked about, was basically that was after now the conquest of Mecca, to where now Islam was being spread further and farther and wider, until the end of the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And then the fifth phase, of course, which we talked about, was what the oma carried on after the after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Now, let's go ahead and go back to exactly where we were talking about now the life of the prophet SAW said I'm so now we're talking about the new Buddha, the first phase of preaching and teaching the message where the process of is just coming to terms with profit and internalizing this message, and himself realizing that he is a prophet in the Messenger of Allah. And now he's starting to share this reality with the people closest to him. Something we've talked about, because when we talked about the prophet SAW some receiving revelation coming home. So now let's talk about the people who initially came to Islam, and that first and foremost begins with his beloved wife Khadija, the
mother of the believers brought the Allahu Allah May Allah be pleased with her. So Khadija de la now was the first one to receive to basically accept Islam. She was the first one to accept assignment. She was the first one to respond to the call. And she was the first one to believe in the message of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam and accept Islam.
And this is narrated in many many different dis many different narrations talk about this. While I'm Anna Khadija been Tukwila didn't have rights was a dichotomy. majha who Mina la he Dada was was a Rottweiler. He mechanics over them and I'm gonna be now he was really he was. I mean, who for her for logwood with Alexandra su de la is Marcia and Yakubu Min rodina Allah who attacked even Naboo Fei Xena who Delica in la hora de la new Bihar is our Raja lady to submit to who to coffee for our lady but to serve the poor to Holy Moly I'm runnahs radi Allahu Allah Allah Wa, very eloquently in this Hawk describes the role of Khadija radi Allahu Allah, in the mission of the prophets Allah they
sell him. He says that Khadija been to Hawaii did she accepted Islam she believed she testified she attested to the truth of everything that the prophets a lot of them came with from a last kind of attalla. She was his aide and his minister in preaching and teaching of the message. She was the first one to believe in a in a lion His Messenger she was the first one to attest to the truth of the message that the prophets a lot of them came with. He then says something very beautiful for her for for love will be be Danica and Rasulullah. He that Allah subhanho wa Taala actually,
Allah subhanaw taala actually lightened the load. That Prophet would had on the prophets a lot he sent him by means of Khadija de la Juana.
He lightened the load of prophethood of the prophets, a lot of them by means of Khadija radi Allahu Allah. And
even his half rights, like his marching and Nicaragua who mean Ratan Ali he was attacked even the who fails in Buddha like that any single time the prophets a lot him heard something that he didn't like that bothered him. Anytime somebody would reject and refuse the prophets, Elijah, anytime somebody would call the Prophet says I'm a liar and would deny
and this was very hurtful to the prophets who loves him. This cause distress to the prophets a lot isn't enough for Raja Lago
except that Allah subhanaw taala would remove that stress would remove that sorrow would remove that pain. From the heart of the profits, a lot of them by means of Khadija de la Juana
is Raja La Jolla, to submit to when you would go back home to her after a long, hard day of preaching, and dealing with the with the with the hate, and the anger of the people. When he would return back to her at home. She would strengthen him. She would solidify him what to have before
and she would lighten the load from him.
And she would remind him that he was speaking the truth. She would remind him that he was speaking the truth and she would make the dealing with the people so much easier for him. So handle I think about that. He made it easier for him to deal with the people. May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with her. And so this was Khadija radi Allahu Allah. She was the first one to accept Islam and this was the role that she played.
There's a famous narration in the SA hain, which talks about there are many narrations that talk about the virtue of Khadija or the Aloha now one narration in this Sahih Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim that speaks of the virtues of cadena de la Juana, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, omitted to an Uber Shira Khadija Khadija I was commanded.
I was commanded by Allah I was commanded that I should congratulate Khadija be baiting Min casaubon to congratulate Khadija of a palace of a home in paradise. Also be in the Arabic language literally refers to it's the word that would be used for any type of a pearl or any type of a valuable stone when it is hollowed out and emptied out kind of carved out to use as jewelry when you would hollow or carve it out to fit it onto a ring or to put it through a necklace or something like that, that Casa would refer to that. I have been told. I have been commanded to congratulate Khadija of a home of a palace in paradise. That will be a single pearl that is hollowed out.
Think about a palace that is one singular pearl that has been hollowed out in an entire palace has been carved inside of one pearl
that's that's a gift for Khadija.
That's a gift for Khadija. So I've been told to congratulate Khadija of this. So we see that even Allah subhanaw taala sang the prophet SAW Sonam to congratulate Did you have a little bling bling right it's good to give it to your wives All right. Suna la Sahaba fee well, Anna Saba. And think about what cadena de la Marina was dealing with. Think about what are these are the lohana was dealing with we just talked about this right? She's the wife of Mohammed rustless, Larissa
she, you know it, you know, we talked about some sometimes people bringing stress home bringing work home, coming home, stressed out tired, whatever it may be.
Think about the type, we just read about it. The stress, the pain, the anguish, the worry, the concern, this was not a job. This was his life mission. This was the reason of his being in his existence.
So definitely that pain that stress, that anxiety that that that trouble that worry was coming home with him.
And she was basically helping him deal with all of that. Think about think about her job, how difficult her job was helping him deal with all of that. So all the noise and all the trouble and everything that she was dealing with, that she was helping the process of deal with in cope with. Because of that Allah subhanaw taala the process of says I was told I was commanded to congratulate her the job of a palace in paradise. That is a single pearl that is hollowed out la Sahaba fee. There will be no noise in there.
There'll be no noise.
No more noise there. Everything that she put up with in this world, there'll be no noise over there. Well are not Saba, nor will there be any hardship or any difficulty there. She did her time here. She paid her dues here.
She won't have to deal with anything over there.
And now another narration which talks about the virtues of Khadija radi Allahu Allah, the prophet of Allah so Allah Islam actually says, I was commanded to give Salaam from Allah subhana wa gibreel Elisa Lam came to the process of and said, Allah sends his Salaam to Khadija.
Allah sends this along to Felicia
imagine receiving Salam from Allah.
Khadija de la Anna was delivered Salaam
But from from Allah subhanaw taala in this life in this world, that is a reward of people that is mentioned in paradise Allah moon coulomb, mira Mira him, but she was given that in the life of this world. One time the prophets a lot of them remarked that the best of women in the heavens.
The best of women in the heavens is muddy and Binta Emraan
is Miriam, the mother of a Salah, his Salah. And the best of women on the earth is Khadija been toilet.
So these are all the virtues of Khadija or the Allahu Allah. She was the first one to accept the message. She was the first one to accept Islam and the first one to stand by the side of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
There's a very beautiful now to talk about who accepted Islam. Next,
who accepted Islam next. There's a very beautiful story to talk about this.
So now the Hadees or the alarm on high accepted Islam. What exactly were they doing? Now of course, he's helping the Prophet ism kind of, you know, of course deal with this and handle the situation, manage the situation, cope with all the difficulty that comes along with that. But the prophet of Allah civilized him, as I mentioned before, was told immediately by Allah subhanho wa Taala to start praying to Allah. And this is something that scholars have discussed about what was the level of Salah at the very beginning we know that five times daily prayer came down at the time of release Allah will mirage. We know that that's a well established fact. But Salah was here from the very
beginning of the journey of the prophets a lot. He said,
what was the nature of that Salah some of the scholars say because of the ayat was a bit behind the rabbinical philosophy you will become
that you praise and glorify Your Lord in the morning and in the evening. That's a lie used to be twice a day. It was made mandatory obligatory because it's the command form while unruly, would you it's the command form in the Quran, Kabbalah toleration, Shiva Avila who Bihar time and time again place in place again in the Quran in the book of Allah that basically morning and evening disallow was made fun of on the process to begin with.
will love without him some scholars disagree with that. But nevertheless, it's something that we don't really have anything concrete in regards to we just know that the process of did observe prayer Salah to Allah subhanho wa Taala in the morning and in the evening. We do know that he prayed during the night for me, Lela, Lela, Lela,
Lela, oh, sorry, volatility Curatola. He prayed in during the night. Again, some scholars see that this was mandatory upon the process. Some, some say no, it was not mandatory upon the prophets, a lot of them what language Allah Allah, Allah, Allah knows best.
We don't have anything absolutely concrete in that regard. We do know this much, that if we try to look at the actions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, that's why many scholars have felt that it was mandatory upon the process. And even after the five times daily prayer came down. Why because the process of never left praying during the nighttime. That was something that was something he consistently did. So much so that it talked about the end of the life of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm even when he physically was now becoming more and frail. And basically he was near death, that even at that point in time, I shadowed a loved one that talks about the process of sitting in
praying but he would pray in the night
shortening the lessening the number of records shortening the prayer, sitting and even praying if need be, but he would pray during the nighttime, which is indicative of the fact that this was something that was an established obligation upon the process. And but again, I still leave it at that, that Allah knows best, we don't have anything absolutely concrete to which we can say without a shred of a doubt. But nevertheless, this was something that process some observed. You know, a lot of times when we talk about the five times daily prayer, we sometimes have a misnomer or misconception. We think that that's when the five times daily prayer addicts Oh cops, and it's five
times became mandatory, obligatory, but we oftentimes assume that Salah didn't even exist before then that's incorrect. Salah did exist. So well established fact then we'll even talk about some narrations from the CD which talks about the prophets a lot. So I'm praying well, way before that time, even publicly bringing way before that time. Well, what sometimes we assume that maybe that's when the Salah was given in the exact form that we have now. Even that is incorrect.
But even this specific format of the prayer is not something that the promises and practice before Elisa will Mirage but it's even something that the previous MBR practice as well. Now we can see again concretely was exactly the format that we bring in, but it was very very similar. What a car Oh, my rock here and
that's an address to Vanessa II. That's talking to the Nusra worker Omar Hakim Maria, the mother of a Sally Sam is being told what was Judy want to carry marocain do sudo didn't do
so so salon even with the archive of salada format
A prayer that we see today was there and it was well established. So it talks about this. There are many narrations, even as harp, mentions, and even even a sham mentions many different variations in which he talks about how the prophets Olson was even taught this prayer to begin with. It's a very beautiful narration. So he says, What can Khadija oh no man I'm gonna be like, Oh, my God, he's so Khadija rhodiola. Anna was the first one to believe. And I tested the truth of what the prophet system came with. Through my inlet jabril Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
alayhi salam. So of course not even his heart. He is contending based on this notion that this this praying in the morning in the evening was an obligation upon the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So he says gibreel Ali Salaam came to the Prophet for Hamas Allahu Akbar vena cava de fun fortunata who is known mingma isms Amma. So he says that the beats basically took the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to eight to basically behind one of the mountains. And it said in some narrations that this was behind the mount Safar This was behind mounts of he basically took the prophecy from there and almost like as a miracle, this is your video. And I'm of course, as a miracle what he basically did
was he caused he basically by the command and the amount of Allah but as a miracle, a spring of the water of Zamzam sprung up behind Mount sulfa
zum zum was coming up or it was coming up
close to beta law close to the Kaaba, but they went behind mount so far, and from there, a spring of the water of Zamzam sprung up from there why to basically give the profits or some quiet private place where they could go and now they could do whatever they were about to do to keep profits on some kind of out of everyone side What is he doing? That's weird. Why is he doing that? Kind of like when you go to make will do when you know at your workplace? Same thing. Alright, so that's basically what was given to him because of, again, right now is the quiet time right now the preaching is not public right now. The prophets Islam is being protected from the harm of people.
So right now, this gibreel Elisa Lam takes across from their water from Zamzam springs up there. And then for the Wada, gibreel Mohammed, Ali masala gibreel alaihe salam and the Prophet of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam he will do together from the water of
Sabrina the Salaam is showing the process and will do ritual purification.
What's the English word for will do?
Yeah, when have you ever used that word in common conversation? Exactly. Alright, so ritual purification is what we're going to call it okay? Not ablution I'm uploading right now. Right? Use it as a verb. But anyways, I saw something funny, funny the other day somebody actually posted on Twitter words that you that you learn in the English language only because of Islamic Studies. Evolution is one of those words But anyways, so ritual purification they learned at that point. The problem is that some is being taught by God loud enough. So they make will do together.
For masala Raka chain, then the Prophet of Allah somebody said pray to God was sajida are such that he prayed to the cosmos for such that sounds familiar? Meaning he learned how to pray the format or aka like we pray now to suggest prayer was such a Arbaaz such that sama Raja hanabusa Allahu Allahu wa sallam, Baka da como la Marina who Tabata nafsa who was with Java, my you hit boom in Allahu taala. So now the prophets hasn't came back home. And the last panel I thought I'd given them the coolness of his eyes. Allah subhanaw taala had given him something that gave him peace and tranquility and fulfillment. Allah subhanaw taala had given him something that he would that the
process I'm loved, and that was
for other big Khadija had a chubby hairline. Then he took his wife, his beloved wife, Khadija la de la by the hand
he held the hand of his beloved wife Khadija de la and he brought her to that same spring
for the world the aka moto Moto G, and then the profitsystem again made will do just like gibreel Ali Salaam aadmi will do in Khadija radi Allahu Allah He taught her how to make will do and they made will do their summer Raka Raka chain and then they pray to God. Why are such that making force who do to suggest protocol basically when the when that second generation means the tutor cons like we pray them today for meccanica will Khadija you suddenly Yanni Ceylon And from that day on forward, howdy God, Allah, Allah and the Messenger of Allah peace and blessings be upon him used to pray together in secret in quiet in their home.
And that was the beginning of Salah that was prayed as a family
They prayed as a family together. And that was the beginning of sola. And that was the beginning of Islam. That was the beginning of the oma, a family, a home husband and a wife is the beginning of Salah, husband and wife praying together.
And we talk about bonding, we talk about, you know, bonding experiences, quality time, this is quality time.
They establish their relationship, their connection with a lot together, they prayed together.
Now, this is basically what was going on. So Khadija will be along, Hannah accepts Islam, and they start and then they pray together. Who is the next person to accept Islam? So the next person to accept Islam based on now, over here, this is something I'll probably end up talking about in the next session because we're running out of time. But I don't want to jump ahead of myself. But there are a lot of narrations which basically talk about Abubakar, the long one who was the first person to accept Islam. No, I need on the long line. It was no Khadija was this is all reconciled.
This is all reconciled by the scholars of Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah which Allah has reconciled is very well. He says that the first one to accept Islam from the women was Khadija odilon. Lorena the first one to accept Islam. And we've talked about her story, you know, in some detail. The first one to accept a song from children was albina Vitaly, but on the other hand, we will talk about his story in a little bit of detail. The third one, the first one to accept a song from the slaves, who were a whole demographic at that time, you have to take that into consideration was a new haritha probably a lot more on him. And we'll talk about his story in detail. And then the first one is
except to Psalm amongst a men was Abu Bakar acidic radi Allahu anhu. We'll talk about his story and his accepting of Islam in detail. Another reconciliation of why there's so many different variations. Some say the first was Abu Bakar. And there's actually the there's a lot of narrations which say, first one takes up to somos, Abu Bakar. First one takes up to somos Abu Bakar. There's two explanations for why the thing is, even though historically, it basically is pretty much when you bring all the narrations together, we realize that Booba Karachi, Lahore and it was more like most likely the fourth one to accept a song, generally speaking, but why do so many narration say he
was the first one first one first one, two reasons. Number one, because the first three have deja rhodiola another way for the process of Mali rhodiola Juana which I'll explain a little bit of detail, but he's a child who lives in the house of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. The third one was able to hide etha probably a long line who, who was a slave in the house of the process that I'm Abubakar or the law is oftentimes referred many narrations speak of him being the first one takes up design, because his was the first public acceptance of Islam. Nobody outside of the woman accepted Islam, he was the first one outside of the home. So that's why he's oftentimes alluded to as the
first one in some narrations. And other reason for this is, and this is not in any way reflective of the people giving these narrations. They were not like this. But generally speaking, because Arabian society at that time, was a society that basically did not treat women properly did not have proper rights of women, of course, they they did not treat slaves properly. Children are were children as well, they weren't really viewed as being you know, you know, real, contributing members of society and community. So because of that the first male adult to attempt to Somoza Delano, so many of the historical narrations refer to him as the first one takes up to some, because he was the only
valuable contributing member of society, in their eyes. That's not how we feel. But in their eyes, he was the only valuable contributing member of society. So except to Sam first and foremost. So that's why he's referred to as that. But nevertheless, when you put all of the narrations together, the second person to accept the psalm was it been to be thought maybe not the last one.
a little bit of detail about our idea of the alojado a little bit of history of Alberto de la mano de la mano is a cousin of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
But of course, as a cousin, the relationship is more of like an uncle and a nephew.
The actual relation is cousin,
the actual relation his cousin, like on the family tree, your cousins, but the relationship the dynamic of the relationship was more of an uncle in the nephew.
Primarily because the loved one was based on the different narrations was, at the very least 30 years younger than the prophets a lot.
So if you have a cousin that's, you know, a couple of years younger than you a couple of years older than you, right and so you play by
With that cousin and you hang out with that cousin and you go out to eat with that cousin, that's not really how it works when your cousin is 30 years older than you, it's a little bit different. All right, so that's what the dynamic of the relationship was more of an uncle in the nephew type relationship.
What this do, what the narration tells us is that a boo tonic, the uncle of the processor, who was the leader of the tribe at that time, there were some very harsh times going on in operation Mecca. Generally, some tough economic times I've talked about this. There were some tough economic times about our lives specifically, this is well documented, and we talked about in detail when we covered the life of avatar labor earlier, was that doubleton, it was a very simple man by nature.
He wasn't a real big entrepreneur wasn't really a big, you know, successful businessman, just by nature is a very simple man. It's just how he was who he was, to the point to the extent for even though he was a leader of his tribe, he had very limited means. We I talked about how even when he passed away, he basically left nothing.
He left absolutely nothing money wise, very simple man. That's who he was by nature. That was actually one of his virtues. That's one of his good qualities. And this is something that rubbed off on the profits a lot is him. That's why the processor was such a, such a humble and simple person as well. So simple in his means in his mode of living, because the processing rate was raised by a man of simplicity.
He was raised by Alibaba to me in a minute he man, the prophets, Allah Some said, simplicity is from EMA, and it's a mark in a sign of a man.
Because he was raised by a man of simple living. That's why it's such a great quality of the prophets, Allah said them. So anyways, I thought it was a man of very limited means. So the prophets as of now that he had become an adult, and this shows you the family values of the prophets, Allah, Allah. See, again, these are the little little things that we don't often focus on that need to be focused on the man the promises of a man of great family values.
He took care of his family relations, we're talking about revelation, we're talking about preaching the message of Islam.
Who cares about keeping up with what's going on with your uncle? I'm doing the work of Islam. Right, that's a mentality we have. I'm a preacher of Islam. So if I can't keep up with a few uncles or whatnot, if I can't keep up with all my relatives, tough luck, they got to deal with it. Because I am a noble preacher of the religion, right? Like we we kind of have this mentality. When we look to the example of the Protestants and we find out how exactly foolish that mindset is. So the process of now that he was an adult, now he was standing on his feet. Now he was a man with a family and a home and a means of living. The prophet SAW Selim was very cognizant and aware of his uncle's
situation, the man raised him.
So the narration says he goes to a bath, one of his other uncles, he goes to a bath for the long run, and he says, Oh, dear uncle, your brother, my uncle, somebody's very beloved to us. I will tell him
isn't very difficult financial situation.
Any still any, as many you know, he has a family is a big home. He has a big family. He has a couple of younger sons, younger children. He could use some help.
Why don't we go in offer to kind of help him out with the family situation. So they said, Okay, so Ibis and the Prophet of Allah, Allah doesn't go to his uncle, I will call him and they basically offer their help.
And at that point in time, one of the sons of obatala Java, bene Vitaly, radi Allahu
Allah knows called Jaffa Tayyar. A great Shaheed of Islam. So, he is taken in by our basadi llamando.
And then he lived in the house of Ambassador de la mano De Basanti, Ilana could handle the cost of living.
I live in a Vitaly but on the other hand, was taken home by the prophet salani Center as a child for very, very young and he was just a few years old. So he grows up in the house of the prophets of Brazil and raised
and that was part of the reason of the fitrah of Allah de la mano being the way that it was his temperament, his mentality being the way that it was. So the narration some narration is very popularly it's narrated that he was seven years old at the time of beginning of Revelation. Actually, the more authentic narrations and the majority of classical books of Sierra actually speak about audio the long line with being 10 years old. He was 10 years old so now in some reconcile it by saying that no, initially when the message first started, you know when it's gonna occurred, he was seven. By this time he accepted Islam that he was 10 but that really doesn't hold up, because
it's well established that the language accepted Islam right there in the first few days in the beginning days. Now how he was in
introduced to Islam is a beautiful story and I'll end with this story and then I'll continue on with talking a little bit more about our leader, the alojado and then some of the other early you know, people who accept us on the early converts to Islam. I'll continue on with that in the next session inshallah, let me just end with this one last story.
Even this hop, and many other books have seen I mentioned this story.
That one time, one day at home,
the prophet of Allah Salah, the son was praying with Cadiz, Allah de la now like we talked about earlier, they're praying Salah, husband and wife
and they're praying Salah together in the home, and either the loved one who a child sees them praying.
And he says that the Prophet of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Muhammad Mada
Dear Muhammad, older brother Bhaijaan says, What's this? What are you doing? I never seen this before. This is strange. It's unique. What is this? Very smart, very bright, very intelligent,
very observant, says What is this? He says Dino law him that he is powerful enough CE o Bharata. Be heroes hula hoops for other oka il Allahu la sharika lahu in la vida de Vaca. From Bella Bella Rosa. So the Prophet of Allah salatu salam seizes the opportunity.
We want to teach our children right.
We want to teach our children problem is a lot of times we perceive teaching our children to basically yell at them,
to wag the finger to wave the finger at them.
Right to tell them everything they do wrong, and then to yell at them and to not force it down their throats. The Prophet of Allah Allah was praying Salah with Khadija de la Juana, the child sees the brain
and then naturally himself asks, What are you doing?
And then the profit or loss of autism now seizes the opportunity, but now instead of even still yelling at him, explains it. Explain.
Explain to a child we're praying Salah Shut up.
Right? That's our mentality. Unfortunately, the prophets Allah explains. Yes. Explain yourself to your own child. What is this? What are you doing? Why are you doing it? How are you doing it? So he says the law look at the explanation to look at the explanation Dena law. This is the religion of a law and letting his family know that Allah is chosen for himself. I mean, this is the dean that Ally's personally approved of? Well, both of you lucilla who and he sends His messengers with disdain this religion for the ruka in a lucky wahoo. So I call you to Allah alone. La sharika. Who, son there are no partners to Allah. But la vida T and I call you to worship only Allah no partners.
Well, cofrin, Bella, Rosa, and these arrows that you see everybody worshipping a Latin RZA. This religion requires you to deny and refuse, worshipping and believing in those idols. He explains it. I leave it alone, one who says how smart he is probably alone. He says, I've never heard of this before, for less to be called in Omron hotel.
I can't really decide until I talk to my dad, I will talk to him about it. You see, again, the values
she developed, I gotta go talk to my dad about it. But of course, taking the situation approaches him and not advocating hiding something from your parents, but the process of some is taking the entire situation to consideration. He says that it's good if you don't talk to anyone else about it. Because the time is not right. Allah has not told me to spread the message about this yet. It's best if you don't talk to anyone about it. And so the prophets hasn't told him he said YALI is a lamb to slim fuckton Subhanallah he didn't say, Hey, what do you mean wanna talk to somebody about it? What are you trying to do? You try to call me a liar. Hmm.
He didn't he didn't say that. He said, Yeah, he said, Son is lm to slim factor. Even if you don't believe then keep it to yourself. Please. If you don't believe keep it to yourself. For Makita aliter kelela Sara Lee radi Allahu anhu slept on it overnight.

But then he was afraid of letting his father know he didn't know how he would react. He didn't know how he would react. So he kept it private. And it said that he did not leave the home with the processor for quite a few days. And he wanted to keep it as some private and private and then it's actually said that he would now he joined the profits a lot he cinnamon, Khadija de la Juana in prayer,
a husband, wife and child are all praying together, a family praying together, offering Salah together.
And we'll go ahead and we'll stop here inshallah, because it's time for Salah in the next generation. In the next session, I'll actually talk about how Eventually, the last one who broke the news of accepting Islam to his father Abu Talib, and exactly how he discovered that and what was his reaction to finding out not only is the process that I'm preaching a message, not only as Khadija his wife converted, but now his own son who was put into care of the prophets on some has also accepted Islam and converted to this new religion. How did you react to all of that we'll talk about the next session. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that was
