shala continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And obviously, it goes without saying,
basically everything that's been going on for the last week or so, or even a couple of weeks,
really, you know, more than anything else, there's a lot of different things that it brings to light and a lot of different things that we need to understand and figure out in light of recent events. But I can't help but feel that primarily for our own community, the primary thing that this highlights to us is how important and how necessary it is, for us to be properly educated about the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is, is something I started off the entire series, we had a couple of sessions that were solely dedicated to the purpose, the benefits, and the methodology of learning the life of the prophets, a lot of them and its importance. And this is something that I've
continued to reiterate throughout the series, every few sessions, I'll take out a few minutes to talk about the importance of it. But, you know, we really have to understand we as Muslims, and as a Muslim community, oftentimes, you know, we fantasize romanticize about the golden age of Islam. And especially in tumultuous times, like the times that we are in right now, where there is a global stage of global scene. And there's a lot of back and forth going on, and a lot of different things occurring in regards to Islam, where not only do we see non Muslims on the offensive or on the front, attacking Islam or attacking the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. But on top of that,
what we also observe is that even the Muslims, the general Muslim society, as well, many Muslims in different parts of the world, they themselves are not really sure about how to handle these situations. And we even see Muslims contributing to a lot of the overall problems that we have on a global scene. And at the same time, though,
while we sit in our little circles, or we get together together in our communities, like I said before, we're romanticizing about the golden age of Islam, when we didn't have these problems. And we didn't have these situations, and people knew exactly what to do and handle handle these situations. But what we also have to understand is that there was something that they implemented, there was something that they understood, you know, it wasn't just magical. It wasn't something that was just magical, because they were at that time, then magically, all of a sudden, without any cause, or without any methodology. They just were awesome Muslims. And it was an amazing aroma. And
it was a golden age, there was a process, there was something that led them to that point. And of course, the the generation of the Sahaba radi Allahu anhu, you know, are the most exemplary but at the same time, they are the direct beneficiaries of the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. You know, they're called the Sahaba from Sahaba. They have the direct company of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, which, obviously nothing compared to. But what's very interesting is what did the Sahaba do for their children? Because then that was a different generation. Now. What did the Sahaba do for their generation? What was the foundation that they, for their children for their coming
generations, what was the foundation that they gave to them that they provided for them, so when we read the testimony of the Sahaba, lights are gonna be overcast for the Allahu anhu and we read the testimony of the generation of the Tabby own, the children of the Sahaba what they did for their children, we find one thing consistent throughout, you know, 1000 years following the generation of the Sahaba, the Allahu anhu, that the consistent thing that we find is that they said Sierra was the foundation of the identity of Muslims. It was the primary tool to lay the foundation of the community and to strengthen the Ummah and to give a sense of belonging and identity and
understanding of one's religion.
You know, I talked about this at the beginning of the Sera, sessions, even when we started them. You know, Koran is, of course, the blueprints. The study of the book of Allah is very important, but one of the primary prerequisites to properly understanding the Quran is to understand the backdrop of the Quran, the historical context of the Quran because without the historical context of the Quran,
We have exactly what we have in the world today.
Because then it's a free for all, then anyone can interpret any anything as, however they want. And so the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a very powerful tool. And at the same time, because of, you know, even when you teach children, even as adults, a good football that you heard, probably had something that helps you relate to what was being talked about. And more often than not, what is it in that good football, that good lecture that helps you connect or relate to the topic that's being addressed? It's a story.
It's a story, something that you feel that you can connect to something that sounds human.
And so therefore, it's practical for you, it's relevant for you. Well, that's exactly what the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is. It takes all these things, which are not abstract, which are not totally theoretical. But the human reality is that when these amazing qualities, when these worthwhile values are addressed, and explained and laid out to the average common human being who might lack that foundation in that background, it could sound very theoretical. It could sound very abstract if I just sat here for an hour and talked endlessly about taco taco taco taco taco, I just read you I read you a hadith and just explained, What is that for?
You, you might be entertained, you might be engaged, you might even be able to quote something, but how would you practically apply it in your life? How would you,
but you would need something human that would illustrate to you what is the manifestation of tequila? How can I realize that what in my life as the biggest need that we have today? I mean, we live in the age of information. She has something to think about, we talk about, oh, we need knowledge, there's nine of knowledge. And I disagree completely disagree. We live in the age of information. What do you want, you want you want translation of the Quran, you could literally within minutes on any handheld device, pull up a dozen translations of the Quran. You want to hear of the Quran. Within minutes, you could pull up on your handheld device, you know, for different
series of a surah.
You want the fit of an issue, pull it up? I'm not recommending that, by the way. That's not the proper system of learning. I'm just trying to illustrate a point information is readily available.
But what's the problem still there? So then what's the issue for the motivated, the inspired the driven student? Why is that students still thirsty and still struggling? Because just the raw information is enough. I need for it to be contextualized I need to be able to apply it to my life, I need to understand how it is relevant to me in my situation.
And that's exactly where the sealer comes into play.
And so with everything that's going on, and that's been transpiring, it's just a reminder, another reminder for us, I saw chakra Hussain and
that's exactly what Allah subhanaw taala told us, that it's very plausible, that there will be something that you severely disliked you it's it's distasteful to you.
Such as the events that have been going on for the last week or so.
Both the very crude, inappropriate slander, of the messenger of a lot peace and blessings be upon him. And equally, the very inappropriate, immature and educated response of Muslims in many parts of the world.
So what this brings to light is we understand that this very distasteful, but Allah says, well, who hated Lacan, but it might be good for you.
It might be good for you, meaning what? That something good might come out of us might come out of it as a consequence.
You might be able to understand and realize and learn something from that traumatic, that tragic experience. And we as an oma, hopefully have learned and have realized and have woken up to the reality, that we need some serious education about the life of the Prophet ceylonese.
Because if we are to refute, slander, and lies about our messenger, well, then we got to be able to actually refute it.
We can't just say, Oh, that's bad, that's bad. Well, how is it bad? What's inaccurate? How is it inaccurate? What's wrong about it? What's inappropriate about it? Look, we're all believers in this room. We all understand it's wrong and it's inappropriate and it's offensive. And it's insulting and it's blasphemous, we understand that.
But if we are to engage ever in a intellectual conversation, we have to be able to explain how and why and where and from what it is wrong. We have to be able to explain that
and we have to come to that to that table that that place of discussion as edgy
It informed believers.
Otherwise, if we say no, it's wrong, how is it wrong? What's wrong about it? It's just wrong. I don't know, we'll find out. If the Muslim woman is saying, I don't know, then who's supposed to know.
That See, that's that's the irony of this entire situation. I'm not absolving the people who did what they did. Because there were vile wretched people, even at the time of the prophets, Allah. He said, we're going to, we're going to learn about one today, Abu lahab, we're going to study about Abu lahab. Today, there have always been vile, wretched human beings, Abu Jamal, Abu lahab, there's always been people like that. And there will always be people like that. So we're not absolving them of what they did. We're just simply saying, we'll implement the guidance from Allah subhanaw taala. With me, will McKenzie been,
let me take care of them.
If I remember, you know, and I understand this could come off very, you know, aggressive, if you will.
But at the same time, I'm just simply expressing what's in my heart. I remember, you know, learning from my parents, very simple example. But words of wisdom, that sometimes when Pete, you know, kids at school, maybe would make inappropriate remarks, or would say something vile, or say something inappropriate, or even, you know, growing up here, 30 years ago, 30 plus years ago, there weren't a lot of Muslims around. So from time to time, you would run into the situation, you know, if you, you know, my father's wearing a coffee, or has a beard, or my mother isn't a job, somebody would say something. And as a 12 year old, 14 year old, 15 year old, you know, you just have a little bit of
your little, you know, you're quick to react, basically,
you know, and as far as I'm concerned, I'm a red blooded Texan. So it's like, well, what, what are you talking about? So you immediately want to get confrontational when somebody says something inappropriate, especially to your family members.
And I remember my parents teaching me something. They said that when you're walking, you know, along in your neighborhood, you're walking down the street from your house, walking around in the neighborhood. And a lot of times here in Texas, because we have those backyards that are fenced off. What will happen sometimes you're walking by backyard, and what happens? The dog in the backyard, here's their sense of somebody walking by, what did they do immediately, they'll come and they'll literally hit the fence. And they'll start barking like crazy. And as you're walking, they'll keep following along with you along the fences barking at you non stop. And my parents asked me a simple
question. They said, do you stop and start barking back at the dog? I said, Of course not.
That would be ridiculous. That'd be silly.
And so he said, exactly. You don't stop and start barking back at the dog, you go about your business because you're above that you're a human being a shuffling robot, in son, you know, sit there and start barking back at the dog.
And so there's a little bit of that mentality that we also have to understand we have to internalize.
But having said that, it does spark a conversation, especially in the in the in the world that we live in.
With the internet, YouTube social media,
it starts to spark a bigger conversation on a grander scale.
Now those questions have to be answered. And if I as a Muslim cannot answer those questions, who's supposed to be able to them
and so we have to know about the life of the prophets Allah the center. And similarly so aside from being able to just respond at the same time how to handle because he, when the last panel will tell us about the profits, a lot of them with emphasis in the put on locker they can and akun fee rasulillah de
la cada, this is with emphasis, no doubt
that there always has been and there always will be Candela confy Cimarron.
There has always been and will always be fee rasulillah. And that fee is meaning it means inside of something.
What that means is self it's completely self sufficient. It's It's It's all you you'll ever need.
solely in the messenger salami center.
Everything is contained in him. Also can Hudson as the most excellent role model, Allah subhana wa Genesis. So Allah is saying that without a shred of a doubt, in the prophets a lot, he says you have the ultimate, most excellent role model that you could ever need for any situation. And we only realize you see how is that possible? One man
63 years of life, 23 years of profit. I mean, everything is there. If we read and we learn and we study we'll see we'll find out our answers there.
But we first got to sit down and read and study and learn. And so it's very imperative that this be a part of our course of action
that we need to go online and we need to read
Let's do that. We need to have a campaign and inform people about the proper understanding of the book, let's do that. We need to do this, we need to, let's do all of that. But at the end of the day, if we still forget to invest our own personal time,
apply ourselves to sit down and learn who the prophets Allah is to make sure that our children are not making the same mistake, that with our children's generation, that same mistake is not being made again, that was made with our generation. And that was ignorance about the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we got to make sure that that same mistakes are made again.
And so let's learn ourselves let's educate our families, educate our children has become an informed and educated inspired community. And then we'll be in a better position to be able to educate others as well inshallah.
So in the previous session, we were talking about the Islam of Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu, meaning Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allah, no coming to and accepting Islam. And we talked about a very beautiful story, which, you know, talks about Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu, publicly addressing the rage in defending the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, and the result and the consequence of that where he was beaten brutally, and we talked about the entire story. One thing I wanted to add to kind of put things back into the chronological, you know, order that we've been covering the events in that it is very plausible. In fact, it is more likely that this event I wanted to mention it there because
it fits in with tying, it ties in with speaking about Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu, becoming Muslim. But this probably occurred a little bit later. What we're going to talk about today occurred before that incident that I mentioned previously. So these first few people had started to come to Islam, there's probably a dozen or so Muslims, quite a bit of time had gone by in this manner in this in this format.
And at that point in time, the second phase of prophethood, was initiated. And that second phase of prophethood was that it was now time to take the message public. It was now time to take the message public. But even that had a sequence to it. Public didn't mean that it went all out public all at once. But it even that had a gradual progression to it, how to go public from where to start going public. And that began with the ayah there are many many different narrations narrated by Mr. Mohammed Mohammed Al and even his Hawk and his Sierra and a llama Bay hockey. And there are even narrations from the SA hain from Bukhari and Muslim. Many different variations. I'm going to try to
put these in the sequence that they actually occurred. A lot of times when you read a sci fi book, maybe sometimes they you know, depending on how it's compiled, the sequence might be out of order or out of sequence based on the popularity of some narrations over the other, but I'm gonna try to put this into proper correct sequence.
There's a narration from Lena Vitali Bodhi Allahu anhu. That the prophet of that when the ayah came down luminescent, a tabula rasa Lila, he salatu salam, what en de Rashi erotica carabin
were under erotica, Caribbean and warn the closest of your tribes people. What that basically means what we would say in English is not just your family, meaning your home when we say family, we think home. The members of the household are already Muslim. Remember Khadija de la I live in a bit our lives they don't know how these are the best friend Abubakar at the level I know, along with other people. But I see it all basically meant do what we call an extended family.
extended family there's the word in Lewis Condon, like the extended family of a person, uncles and aunts and cousins, that extended family. So go and warn the extended family members will feel Jana haka, Li Manitoba camino Mini. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala told him that go and warn them, and whoever follows you from the believers, then be very humble and be very merciful to them.
And that was an indication of the simple fact that when you go and you warn these family members of yours is this extended family of yours, you might deal with a negative response, or some backlash. So those who are actually willing to follow you or require your mercy, and will require great care and consideration from you. Because they're going to be facing a lot of odds, and they're going to be you know, facing an uphill battle. So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam tells us, the Allahu anhu are off to me in order to be happy and here I am in Houma, Accra who for sama to
the Prophet of Allah salon is a wonder ation actually says that he said that. I know that if I go and I start with my family members, my own my people, my extended family, then what I know about them
Is that they will not like what I have to say what their response will not be very good. And that's why I hesitate. I'm quiet I hesitate. I'm very hesitant to go and talk to my family about it. Because of what I know about them. I know them and I know I know who they are. And I'm pretty hesitant for Johnny gibreel Ali Hassan, Mohammed inlanta file Ma, Ma Ma Kabira. Boca, Boca, Boca, he gibreel Ali Salam came to the prophets a lot. He said, O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if you do not do what your Lord has commanded you to do, your Lord will punish you,
as a very harsh, strict words. Now, of course, obviously we speak about the messengers a lot of some of the most respect, but we see this is a less power, it's Allah, holding the prophets, a lot of them accountable for the delivering of the message. We're in lambda alpha mabalacat is Allah.
So Allah is holding them accountable. A Practical lesson that we can extract from that is that we have to understand, when we say I show a lot, and I had a lot when I shadow, Mohammed, Abu rasuluh, it is a responsibility that we shoulder, it is a responsibility that we carry, that we must share this message with the rest of humanity. And if we don't, we will be held accountable. And what's very interesting is that the narration says that your Lord will punish you. And the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala can be in many, many different various forms. This doesn't just mean what we immediately think of all in the Hereafter, there will be some punishment upon you. No, no, this
could mean that the punishment of Allah will come upon you in the life of this world as well. And when we see what's going on in the world today, this is nothing more than the punishment of Allah. This is the consequence of our deeds.
When people don't respect us, and people don't respect that which we respect,
this is a this is directly connected to what I said earlier. This is us directly connected to us not doing our jobs. And when Muslims themselves don't know exactly what to do in these situations. What do you think that is? That is a punishment, meaning it is a direct consequence of us not doing our job. And so your Lord will punish you. So, the Allahu anhu says for Danny the prophets allottee some called me for kala, yeah, and he in the Mahabharata, ama, Ronnie, and in the Rashi Rashi carabin. He said, Oh Ali, my Lord has commanded me. Allah has commanded me to warn my close family members first now Elena Yeah, Alicia Tana alasa I mean, tomine Well, I read the Nana rossana bunny. So he said,
Ali, go and basically roast a or prepare cook a a goat for us.
Go and cook a goat for us. Go slaughter an animal and cook and prepare the food for us. And also prepare some other food along with it some rice or something else along with it. Well, Elena was celebrating and also go and bring basically a big bowl of milk. So go and cook some meat, put some sides on, you know, cook some sides to that meat and then also go and get a big bowl of milk. And he gave a little diorama I know probably whatever he needed in regards to that and he told him go and prepare this and bring this and get this ready. So much not so much mount Lee but neopterin muttalib and then go and call all the sons meaning all the family of Abdulmutallab and gathered them together
for me. So I need to do a lot more on you says for fall two I did exactly what he asked me what he asked me to do. fetzima Ola, who were who Yama he didn't about owner Julian yazzie. Do Narayan Oh yeah. Oh yeah. So soon. for him. Imam Abu Abu taniwha Hamza will Abbas wa Abu lahab alkaff en El Capitan. And it describes what Buddha was. So he says that I did exactly that. And they all got together. And there was about 40 people that got together. And he says there might have been one or give or take a few, but about 40 people got together. And amongst those 40 people were the uncle's of the prophets, a lot of them meaning the D paternal uncles, the brothers of his father, the direct
uncles who taught him Hamza Abbas and Abu lahab
for condemned to LA him Kill Kill, kill kill Jaffna? So I presented the food to them for other salicylate is a minha Hindi eaten for shahabi as nanny tomorrow, maybe half an hour here, but Allah kulu Bismillah he, then Allah, Allah, Allah describes one of the early Marchesa miracles of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, because he said the food while it sounds like you know, you cook a whole goat, and you put some food on the side and you get a bowl of milk but think about 40 men.
That's not going to suffice. And so he says, When I finally presented the food, the profits, a lot of them took a little bit of the food, and he took a bite from it and then he put it in the corner of the plate. And then he said, Now eat by the name of Allah.
kulu Bismillah began by he began eating by the name of Allah With the name of Allah for Omaha Tana Juan Houma, Yura Allah Azza wa sabia him. And then Allah The Allahu anhu says they have dug in. And what he describes is that everybody ate to their fill. Like it was a feast. Like when you haven't eaten all day, and then you go to a get together or a party, and especially if it's family members, then there's, you know, a lack of formality. Not everyone should sound like some formal dinner. It's just family members, it's your brothers and your cousins and your uncles, everybody grubs, everybody, Charles down. And so he said, Everybody started eating very heavily. And so much so that
you just would see their, you know, their hands, keep going into the dish, taking more food, taking more food, what law he and he says, I swear by God in Ghana, Rajamouli aku, mithila ha, that, you know, it, it was so it was so little food that basically at that time, especially the eating habits that some of these people had, that maybe one man could have finished most of this food off himself. But in spite of that, 40 people ate from that from a cholera salicylate ism is the miani and then the profits, a lot of them said now give them something to drink it. Now remember, it's a bowl of milk, and it might have been a bigger bowl. But come on. How many of us have ever taken some cereal
in a big old bowl and just poured milk in there and just, you know, gone to town on it. So you know, it's I mean, these are grown men. It's a big bowl of milk, but they're grown men 40 men
and forget to be Delica bezalel carb for Sherry boomin ohana Hello, Jamie on what a Malawi in Canada Julia shabu mithila Misra, who, and then he says that the bowl was brought in they all drank from it and again it rhodiola han who swears that I swear to God that one man could have drinking that whole bull by himself. But the 40 people drank from that one bowl for Lama or other Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and you can see my home brother who Abu lahab and then the prophets a lot of them once everybody ate and everybody drank and everybody was comfortable and kind of chillin and in the process and was about to speak to them. A Buddha have jumped in.
And by now, you know, some of the uncles and close family members that kind of heard about what was going on. And so a hula hoop jumped in. And for Karla lahat de masaharu, calm Sahaba calm.
And I Bula have jumped in and said that, you know, this, this fat this this brother of yours Sahaba come like this, this family member of yours. This guy.
He's done magic to all of us. Because they're all sitting there they're all eating and after a while everyone kind of looks around and realizes 40 people drinking from one bowl 40 people eating from a big tray of food.
And then he says oh look look he's practicing his magic on us.
For the for Roku. And people got kind of nervous and everybody got up and started to leave. One the nation's even says that a Buddha have said this and got up and left himself and being kind of the leader and the elder, you know, family member. Once he got up and walked out and everybody got up and started walking out with them. You can live in Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and the process of didn't get a chance to talk to them. For them mechanical HUD. So the new system tomorrow the next day rolled around the profits a lot he said I'm again to the leader of the alojado Organa be mithila de cuenta Sonata and I've been MC Mata Amira Shara
the profits a lot of them to the alira de la mano here you go go make similar arrangements. Those do it all over again go make similar arrangements.
And for in the hatha Raja, Rani, Lama Samia tabula and kelemen calm, because he told me earlier the Lama I knew that the gentlemen basically spoke before me and kind of ruined my opportunity to be able to talk to the people and I didn't get a chance to properly address them. So again, it rhodiola one who says I prepared the food, I sent out the invitation, everybody got together, and you know, everybody ate. And again, you know, he gives the same detail. It was enough food for one person, but everybody ate. And then I brought them the milk, the bowl of milk. Everyone drank, even though would have been, you know, one person could have finished it himself. But everybody drank and again, as
soon as a prophet somebody who literally was opening his mouth, a Buddha have jumped in again. Cut him off again. And again, he said, Oh, look, look look here goes doing his magic again. He soon showed up to eat the food.
He still shows up to eat the food.
But then he again kind of breaks up the party ruins the whole situation kind of crashes the party. Oh, here it goes with this magical stuff again. Come on, come on everybody. Let's get out of here and everybody got up and dispersed.
The Prophet of Allah Salaam, SM the third day again tells I needed the alarm on
let's do it again.
And I needed the loved one who said I went and I made the arrangements
Again, and I send out the invitations again. And everybody got together. And
everybody Ah, so kids look at the character of the prophets a lot. He said that
everybody ate and everybody drank. You figure about the third day's number like I nobody no food.
Guess what, I didn't even make any food today.
So you do right. Haha, gotcha. No food today. Right? He didn't do that he prepared the food and everybody ate the food and everybody drank the milk and then the profits a lot of them spoke up
and beat to the punch. And then the prophets Allah Allah Some said yeah, Benny Abdulmutallab.
Yeah, Vanya Abdulmutallab, oh, the sense of optimism, the family of Abdulmutallab, not only is that true, are they the family of Abdulmutallab, but that is also a very respectful address. Because if you remember the earlier sessions in the Sierra, where we talked about the family background of the prophets election, we said that it wasn't just a lead. It wasn't just there wasn't just the grandfather wasn't just a leader of the people. He was a legendary leader. He was a leader that had basically unified the Arabs to quite an extent. Because of him, the Arabs are very organized and were somewhat of a force because they were unified under his leadership because he was just such a,
you know, unanimously everybody was in agreement when it came to his leadership. So he respectfully addressed him.
He respectfully addresses him Yeah, but he told me we're lucky. My Alamo Shaban minilogue jaho movie of Donna me magic combi he, he said, I swear to God, I do not know any.
I do not know any men, from the Arabs, who has come to his people with something better than what I have come to you with today.
I don't know anyone who's ever brought anything to his people that is more beneficial than what I am presenting to you today. Which is absolutely true.
In ecology can be reduced.
I have come to you with something that will benefit you both in this world and it also in the life of the hereafter.
In another narration, he says waka ama Ronnie Allahu
alayhi wa, and God has commanded me Allah has commanded me to call you to it for aq Khan. You as Irani, Allah has an amber, Allah and yagoona
so who amongst you will help me will aid me will support me and be my brother
and be my eight in this cause.
the narration goes on to say I leave the alarm on who describes that nobody responded.
Everybody was quiet.
So much so that Abbas for the Allahu
Hamza, the Allahu Allah,
who were not Muslim yet, but would accept Islam later on. So because of them accepting later Islam later on, they were inclined towards this truth. In the long run, who says you could somewhat see from their face that they wanted to say something, they felt inclined, but they hesitated. I mean, they're sitting pretty much with the entire brain trust of Makkah.
But the most powerful city, the most powerful family in the most powerful city of Arabia. So there was some slight hesitation, they were kind of looking around.
And the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam is basically pressing.
Who will support me who will aid me who will join this cause.
And finally, audio, the loved one who says I couldn't wait any longer. And the narration says earlier, the loved one was probably 12 or 13 years old at this time.
Now, think about this 12 or 13 years old, he says analysis Allah
I will a messenger of Allah.
I will the prophets a lot of them said until you said no.
And I literally love my new describes in the narration himself, not what he said there but he's, he's describing recalling that situation. He says, I swear to God, on that day, I was the least respectful. I mean, the least dignified out of all of them. When it came to like social standing, I was the least of socialist as a 13 year old kid. These are the most powerful men in Arabia.
I was the least in social standing out of all of them.
He says I was the he uses some beautiful Arabic phrases to kind of describe you know situations where in Nila, Mashallah a name.
In another narration, he even goes as far as this
scribing himself as what are muscles
that I had the most, you know, when you wake up in the morning and you have a little bit of, you know, I don't know gunk, I don't know what it's called. Right You have a little bit of like stuff right here that you got to kind of scrape and clean out of your eye. He said I had I was the most fresh eyed.
I was the most fresh out of all of them, which is an Arabic expression for saying, I was a child compared to them.
I was a child I was a boy.
You know, because like, you know how a child is a grown man kind of grooms himself, cleans himself before he presents himself for the people, boys, kids, just walk right out,
delete food and do so have food all over their face. So he says I was a boy.
So I still had, you know, some junk in the side of my eye.
I was still physically, you know, the lightest of them socially. I was the lightest of them. Age wise. I was one of the youngest amongst them. But I stood up and I expressed my support to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And one of the narrations goes on to say
that the Prophet of Allah salallahu alayhi wa sallam was so pleased, and I needed to learn more I knew standing up and speaking up for him, and showing his support for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praised earlier the Allahu anhu at that time in front of everyone, and the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam basically said about Allah, the Allahu anhu, that He is my brother. And he is my aid and my supporter, and he will be a leader after me as well.
And now, you know that this had gone on kind of long enough, you're probably wondering, where's Abu lahab this entire time. So now that this kind of this exchange happened, now, Abu lahab because the prophets, a lot of them spoke well of allinone Allahu anhu, and said, He's my brother. He is my supporter, he is a believer, and he will be a leader after me. He is a role model for everyone. He praised our leader the long line, because he was willing to support him in that family gathering where nobody else was speaking up.
That now Abu lahab struck. And Abu lahab says to Abu Talib, who had inherited the leadership of MK of grace from the father of the Muslim, he tells us who taught him. He says, look, look, look what you're looking at. Our nephew says, Our nephew says that you should follow your own son,
our nephew, he wants you to be submissive to your little 13 year old boy. He tells the father that the son will be a leader. So what does that make you that makes you a follower? I thought you were the big dog. I thought you were the big leader of praise. I thought you're the chief of Makkah. Look at this, your nephew in humiliates you. He puts your little boy in a position of leadership. basically doing exactly sound familiar.
and basically spinning it, turning it molding it into something that it's not sensationalizing something. scandalizing a situation, the profits, a lot of them is just positively reinforcing a young man who shows bravery and courage. A blue lab turns it into something completely different. He turns it into somehow some way in his in his twisted mind, he's able to turn this into an insult to the father of the boy to the uncle of the Prophet says I'm the man who raised the promise of such a man that the promises have had so much love and so much respect for
the Prophet system, love doubleton.
He loved him and respected him so much. He would never dare disrespect him.
We will read narrations later that even wind up or he would come and complain that we'll call him and I will tell you would call the Prophet says I mean, he says nephew, you know, I got your back. But come on, you're rocking the boat here. These people keep coming to me and telling me like, you know, what are you doing? That the Prophet ism wouldn't just tell his uncle, listen, I gotta do what I got to do.
You know, if you can't take the heat get off the kitchen knives will either will or you didn't speak to his uncle that way. He didn't speak to the man who raised him that way. The narrations when we get there, you'll see that the prophets a lot of them would break down into tears.
He's a 40 something year old man.
But because this is the man that raised him, it's like his father. It's like the men raised them.
It's his parent.
Just like we would in front of our own parents. The process would break down into tears and he would say, Uncle dear uncle, yeah, me. My dear, dear uncle. I never wanted to harm you.
No insult or offense to you. That's how much respect and humility the Prophet ceylonese and I'm had in front of his uncle Abu Talib
because he had respect, so dignified mantoloking alene.
So the processor wasn't disrespecting me, but that's what I would have turned it into
sincere, sensationalizing, scandalizing, something innocent,
something very appropriate.
And once a Buddha have said this, and he got up and he walked away from there, everyone dispersed.
And so that was the first direct
interaction, the prophets a lot of them had openly preaching and teaching, beginning with his family members, and Banu Hashim,
his family members, so that was the first public address by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Sometime after this, the prophets a lot of them basically realized now that the news was now out there. Everything was official, all the speculation was over. anything anyone had been gossiping about, speculating about wondering about was all gone, the mystery was gone. Now. It was out there.
So the profits a lot he said, I'm now taking it up to the next level. The progression of the publicity of the message, took the next step. Now the prophets, a lot of us haven't gathered, the courage.
Now he gathered the tribe.
First it was just the family. But what I've done with Taliban who Hashem if you will, now he gathered the tribe, not even all of them, aka all of Arabia, but not just the tribe, just Quraysh.
And it said that he gathered them all together.
And the Prophet of Allah salatu salam was a man of great respect.
Anything he said the prophets a lot of him you know, the a hadith in the Shema, in that we read about the promises and being very quiet, being very measured with his words, not speaking unnecessarily. That was the character of the Prophet sallallahu even pre noble before profitable
so if the prophets Allah is him is publicly gathering everyone to address everyone, everyone to get very seriously.
So everyone gathers together. And the profits a lot is an asset, a sense, climbs up on the mountain of sulfur.
And from there he addresses the crash.
And so the narration narrated by ignore about sort of the Allahu anhu May he says llama Anza lager under archaeological akura been an abuse a lot. He said, I'm a sofa for cida la semana de yas Yamaha the prophets, a lot of some climbed up on the mountain so far, and he said, Yeah, sabaha Yes, Baja, which was basically an emphatic address of Listen, listen, my brothers listened to me. Family members, listen. Brothers of mine, listen.
And this immediately got everyone's attention.
And then the profit syllogism started to address each family. Yeah, Vanya. Abdulmutallab. Yeah, Bonnie Phil. Yeah, Bonnie Louis.
In another narration, he addressed even more family members. When he said he addressed him Yeah, Mashallah. Quraysh Yama, Shara Monica. Yama, Shara Bani Hashim, Yama, Shara Bonnie Abdulmutallab. And then there are a couple of different narrations where it's very plausible to process them said all of these following things. So he started off by just addressing them as yet many of them muttalib and aefi here, yeah, vanilla way, or a too low bar to come and fail and be safe. He has a javelin, to redo under hoorah. And to hear on a come a sub Dr. Mooney
that he said that what do you think if I said that there was there's a cavalry?
There's a cavalry.
A whole army, a battalion, entire cavalry is on the other side of this mountain that is about to come and attack you. Would you believe me?
Would you believe me?
we you know we I don't know how much in detail. I'm going to get into this. But even from these addresses of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we actually even learn how to engage people when speaking to them.
We even learn how to engage people when even speaking to them.
Including, you know, all these modern techniques of public speaking posing a question, encouraging interaction, letting your audience think taking a strategic thoughtful contemplated pause look at the address of the prophets Alicia
He he addresses them to the point where he gets her attention. Gives them important javonni ultimate Olivia benefit. Yeah. Bonnie Louis. Hmm. Think about this. Have you thought Have you considered
that if I said there is an army on the other side of this mountain about to come and attack you? So Dr. Mooney
Would you believe me, and then letting it simmer just a little to see what response they have
Kaduna. Um, they respond to interaction.
They said yes, or messenger, or rather young. Um, yeah, Mohammed. Yes. Oh, Mohammed.
And then another narration goes on to say that they say to the prophets a lot. He said I'm actually explicitly that Marja, Rob Naka. Kathy been that we have not found you to ever be a liar.
We've never experienced you to be a liar. We've never we've never had an experience of you lying to us. Why wouldn't we believe we have no reason to doubt you, we have no reason to be skeptical of you.
Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said for in Nina zero Lacombe in a garden shed, then I am here to warn you about a very severe punishment that is coming your way.
Another narration says that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam said
yeah Mashallah. Quraysh unqiue anfis akumina now, all Society of Malaysia community of Quraysh Save yourselves from the fire yamashiro Bonnie carb and keto unphysical mina now over new cab, save yourselves from the fire of hell. Yeah, but Marsha Bani Hashim and Pedro and fusa come in and now Yama, Shara Bonnie Abdulmutallab, unqiue, unphysical, Mina, now, he's telling each of the family, save yourself from the firewall, save yourself from the fire of yourself, save yourselves from the fire of hell.
And even then that is it. You know, you might say, oh, man, that's kind of heavy. Save yourself from the fire. But it's a very empowering message. He's saying, save yourselves. You have the ability to protect yourself. You have the ability to save yourself.
It's empowering them to you know, take control of your situation.
And the Prophet of Allah Allah ism even goes as far as saying Yeah, Fatima bint Mohammed.
Oh, Fatima, the daughter of Mohammed. And kvnf Sakina. Now, you save yourself from the fire in another nation even address some of his ants.
Yeah, Sophia. vinta. Abdulmutallab.
Save yourself from the fire of hell. And then he said, For anyone like ILA, I'm Nicola camino, Allah has shaken because I don't control your fate.
I don't. I don't control anything from Allah subhanho wa Taala. In regards to your fate, this is you're dealing directly with Allah. Allah. Allah Kumara Haman Sabu Habibullah be back be belaga
that most definitely all of you here. You have a relationship with me.
Y'all are family to me. And I will honor our family relations to the best of my ability. So a boo boo ha b b b La Liga. It's an expression in classical Arabic, which basically means I will take care of this, regardless of what it takes.
No matter how difficult it is, I will take care of this. It's an expression that means that
so he's saying I will honor my family relation to you.
I will respect you. I will love you as family members to the best of my ability.
But I'm just telling you here
that you got to realize what you have to do. You have to be more conscious and more aware of your situation. You have to realize what's at stake here.
And even so much so that the generation of Muslim Sahih Muslim says that the prophets a lot even said Saloni, malema, she
when he says I will honor my family relation to you he said Saloni malema, she
asked me for my money as much as you want. I will literally stand here right now and hand out all my money to you.
Two things establishes, number one, I don't want anything from you. I will give you I'm not asking I'm here to give.
I will I will I will bankrupt myself by giving to you. And Subhana Allah, even this is a prophecy from the Messenger of Allah, Allah listen because he did bankrupt himself, given to the oma giving to the people taking care of the people.
I mean, eventually we'll get there I don't want to jump ahead of ourselves. But when we talk about the passing of
messengers a lot. So when we read about what he actually left behind,
when if you are a true believer, and you study the entire life of the prophets, a lot of them, and then when we get there, and we talk about what he actually left behind, in material possession, it'll break your heart
and make you cry.
Remember, the generation are
walking in seeing the profits of medicine laying down on a straw mat,
with literally a leather like, almost like a sack stuffed with the leaves of date palm trees,
stuffed inside of it, laying on it, so much so that when he got up, his whole face, is imprinted by the leather. His whole body shows the straw.
So his whole body is like imprinted with the straw.
And I'm rhodiola, who sees this and starts to cry.
So the prophets, Allah has asked me for my money, I'll give it all to you. Number one, he says, I'm not here to ask, I'm not here to take, I'm here to give.
The second thing he establishes by saying this is that there is saying something and there's actually doing it. The system didn't just talk a big game, he backed it up, he walked it.
He backed it up. He stepped up,
that the Prophet of Allah Salaam didn't just say, didn't just preach flowering things, and say, Oh, you're my family members. And I love you very much. And I'll put you before everything else, and I'll take care of you. And then all of a sudden, just push them aside and forget about them know the profits. A lot of them said, literally, Everything I have is here at your disposal.
Anyone who needs anything, let me know. I'll take care of you. I'll do whatever I can.
So please understand that when I stand in front of you here today,
I do this with love.
I do this with out of compassion. I do this out of concern.
My heart bleeds for you.
And this was the emotional address of the prophets a lot. So
now I want you to take something into consideration.
Imagine the amount of courage
that it took the prophets allowed him to do this.
To gather all of the families of Croatia together, to stand in front of them to take all of his social family political capital that he had.
he cashed in all of his chips. Everything that he had, he put it all on the table and backed up his message.
He basically put it all there, invested everything in went all in and said just please take this message from me.
Imagine what an emotional moment it was. Imagine how difficult it was for the profits or losses from just put himself out there like that. And pour his heart out in front of everyone.
Think about how exhausting
it would be emotionally psychologically.
how difficult that moment would be
and how you would be hanging on every second as to what is the response here.
And once again, Abu lahab spree speaks up.
And Abu lahab says the Prophet Salatu Salam tabun la casa Iranian
taberna Casa Iranian
taborn laka May you be damned? May you be doomed.
May you be doomed May you be damned May you be wretched May you be ruined.
It's a very it's basically cursing someone. It's the curse someone out
he cursed him out saddle young
all throughout the days.
Meaning May you be ruined for the rest of your life.
Amanda outrunner ilani Hava Amaya Martina in La Liga Did you not call us here together except for this nonsense is garbage. Did you not gathered here together for any other reason aside from this garbage?
This is how we address the profits a lot easier.
And literally, as soon as he said this are the profits a lot he said them
and turned around and walked away. Everyone dispersed. Everyone walked away from there. With the profits, a lot of them still standing there.
Imagine how difficult that moment was. Imagine how painful it was.
Imagine how heavy it was, how difficult it was for him to deal with that situation.
This was the first public address of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam first and foremost as we talked about, to his family, and then overall took place
In general, to the other families of Croatia, as well.
And so there's a lot of different lessons that we learn from what we talked about today.
One of the things that we learned from what we talked about today is that,
somebody might have the incorrect assumption, and all of this is based off of, you know, different things that have been said, you know, different things that have been assumed about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that Oh, yeah, his message only caught on and his message was only taken by those people at that time, out of family loyalty and tribal affiliation. And that's how he was able to build and gather some type of a following. We see that to be not the case at all. His own family dismissed him his own people rejected him.
So we see, and this is not when you hear that you might think, but doesn't that work against him? No, it actually worked in his favor. They didn't, they didn't just say, Hey, listen, whatever, as long as it's, you know, it's obviously this is gonna work out for us. He's one of our guys, this will be good for us. Why don't we just kind of get on board and, you know, use this as an opportunity to kind of build something, get something going for us here? No, that wasn't the case.
So the profits, a lot of them definitely had to fight an uphill battle. The profits, a lot of them was in appeasing people. He wasn't just preaching what was convenient to those people at that time, the profits, a lot of them was preaching was teaching something that was a complete shift
was a complete shift from what they believed in and how they live their lives. And we see that in the response that even the operation the blue Hashim had.
Another thing that we see in regards to this is we see that if the prophets a lot of them initially was met with denial, refusal rejection from his family and from his people. But the profit solution didn't quit.
The profit solution didn't stop the first story we talked about first day, second day, third day, there was no quit in the profits.
We need to learn a lesson from that. We need to learn that type of resilience, that type of persistence, that type of steadfast and that type of resolve.
When we talk about what we've inherited, what we have from the prophets, Eliza, it needs to also include and we need to also understand this. So we have to understand and we have to embrace this.
Another thing that we learn from this is we understand that we have to be cognizant of our role and our responsibilities.
First and foremost, as a human being.
That we have a responsibility that is owed to Allah subhanaw taala we have to maintain our relationship with Allah,
we have to put things right. Secondly, as family members, as family members, we also have a responsibility as family members.
It is an obligation upon us to share the deen and to try to benefit our own family members. And then as members of society, as human beings, as citizens of this country, we have that third level of responsibility where we have to share this truth with humanity at large. And again, we see the prophets, a lot of them fulfilling all of these three different elements. He built his relationship with a lie, he was praying, he was meditating, he was reciting the Quran.
He was preaching and teaching to his family members. And then the prophets Allah Islam, as we'll learn later on, eventually stepped out into the public arena. Even here we see in this narration as well stood on top of the mountain of sofa and preached this truth to the entire tribe of Pradesh and to a city at large. So we see that the Prophet of Allah salatu salam took care of his responsibilities, beginning with family members, and we see the sincerity.
We see the sincerity, we see the heartfelt message, and the pleading of the prophets a lot of time with his family members. And that type of sincerity needs to be there on our part. We can just say we care about people, we have to care about people. If to mean it, you have to be sincere in that regard. And if we are sincere in our compassion and our concern and love for humanity, and truly wanting that which is best for them, it will most definitely impact our course of action. It will impact our thought process it will affect the choices that we make and what we choose to do.
So inshallah we'll go ahead and pause here for this week, may Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that was said and heard. So how to lie he will be humble he so Hannah Columbia Hasidic Chateau La ilaha illa Anta, a sub furigana to the lake.
