See the life of the Prophet by sheer Abdul Nasir zhongda. visit us on the web at Calum Institute dot o RG or find us on [email protected] slash Gollum Institute. Malaysia Welcome to Villa salatu salam ala rasulillah well Allah Allah He will be here as mehreen

00:00:29--> 00:01:00

inshallah, let's go ahead and get started with our lesson continuing the study of the prophetic biography the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stating the obvious here, I know it's election night tonight, and some folks might have an interest in going home, some folks might have an interest in going home and watching you know, the results kind of rolling in and whatnot. So inshallah I'll keep today's session a little bit shorter than usual, just to accommodate anybody inshallah. And of course, it has nothing to do with my own

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

prioritization or anything, but a is very convenient, but even shallow So as I was saying, Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. So continuing the study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In the previous session, we talked about a couple of different issues, a couple of different stories, we kind of continued the topic of the aggression, the violence against the prophets, a lot of the sentiment the Sahaba, or the Allahu anhu. And we talked about that very interesting, even entertaining story about a boo Jan becoming intimidated by the prophet sallallahu Sallam because Allah subhanaw taala was sending His divine help to the Prophet ceylonese

00:01:41--> 00:02:19

to them. So when Abu Jamal would look at the prophets a lot, he said, You know that one time, that's where we talked about where he saw a huge camel, like almost like a wild camel, standing behind the profits ally seven, of course, physically one was not there. But this was the intimidation that Allah subhanaw taala gave to the profits allowed him to keep a boo jehlen check a little bit. And then we talked about the very beautiful, powerful story of Hamza bin Abdullah, Abraham's out of the love of mine, who the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how he accepted Islam, and how he became he was always loyal, and loving towards the prophets, a lot of him but how he became such a

00:02:19--> 00:03:00

devout, firm believer, and how he became such a staunch supporter of Islam and Muslims. I wanted to continue, I mentioned it's at the end of last week's session, I wanted to continue by mentioning the a couple of more of the individual stories of some of the early Muslims. And I understand we've been kind of talking about this over the last few weeks. But I feel it's beneficial because there's something very interesting out one of our objectives throughout this study of the Sierra, the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has been to not just tell the story to not just chronicle the biography of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but to extract lessons along the way to take the

00:03:00--> 00:03:39

relevant, pertinent lessons and see how this relates back to us, as an oma and as communities today, what can we personally family wise, community wise? What What can we learn from the life of the prophets, a lot of them as well. And one of the very interesting lessons by studying a little bit of detail, just a little bit, not full biographical sessions, but a little bit about some of these early individuals who accepted Islam, and talking about how they accepted Islam, where they were coming from, what their perspective and their situation was. And we see the diversity, we see the variety, we see the different backgrounds, we see the different challenges that they were facing.

00:03:40--> 00:03:57

And what it does is it It strengthens us as a community. It makes all of us feel like we belong. Because a problem today, believe it or not, we know this is a problem with non Muslims. But believe it or not, it's a problem even in the Muslim community, that there is incorrect.

00:03:58--> 00:04:41

assumption, there's this misunderstanding, misinformation, that the oma or the Muslim community is monolithic in nature, that we are homogenous. I know it doesn't help to use one big word to explain another big word. But what that means in simple language is that we are all the same. We're a bunch of drones, a bunch of clones. You know, I don't know if you have any Trekkies, but the Borg, right, no, absolutely not. Okay, nevermind. So but, you know, in this TV show, they had this thing called the Borg where everybody were like these androids are these machines are these robots. And everybody was centrally connected back to one central machine. And that central machine connected, controlled

00:04:41--> 00:05:00

everybody else. And everybody just pretty much did whatever information was being put out, and they put the information back in everyone's network thing connected. And there's this understanding, like I said, in the non Muslim community that we're like that and even more tragic leaders that there's the impression within the Muslim community.

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

At the outer line, the fringes of the Muslim community are under the impression, being a devout Muslim being Muslim being religious means we got to go ahead and basically wipe exactly completely who we are. And we got to fit into this one exact mold. And we basically have to become a machine and a robot, a clone of all these other Muslims. And by the way, when I say the fringe of the Muslim communities under this impression, it's not that much more of a fringe when we're talking about 90% of the community. But believe it or not, 10% is actually a generous number, but 10% of the community is towards the center. And that fringe I'm talking about, that a stand if not on the edge, or

00:05:42--> 00:06:01

teetering on the edge of Muslim or non Muslim, there at least tending very near that border in that boundary. And so, it's very important to distill to dispel these notions, to do away with these misunderstandings, and learning about some of these early Muslims is very helpful in this regard.

00:06:02--> 00:06:28

So and they're also very inspirational stories, and they tell us about how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was doing the dialogue, how the prophets Allah was delivering the message, how he was interacting with people, how was he welcoming people into the community at a very, very difficult time. So another very noteworthy individual who would later on go on to be one of the most noteworthy and reputable and famous of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:06:29--> 00:06:53

was a man by the name of a Buddha, ultra fatty radi Allahu taala. And who, so Abu Dhabi was his punia. And actually, this story is narrated by ignore the more detailed version is narrated by if not ambassador, the Aloha numa. But the shorter version of the story that emammal they have to handle Allahu Allah mentions is actually related

00:06:55--> 00:07:35

by some of the family members of Abu that are the Allahu anhu. So the more detailed version narrated by Abdullah bin Abbas and as mentioned by mumble hottie rocking along with Allah, he mentioned that a Buddha, this man, this individuals from the tribe of leafa, and when he heard, and he was actually a very respectable leader, an individual from his tribe, he was a very successful businessman. And so he was very, he was an honest, good man. He was very successful in business. So he was well respected in his community, when you heard about the prophets a lot, but he was very intelligent and thoughtful. So when he heard about the prophets a lot, he sent them proclaiming his message and

00:07:35--> 00:08:14

preaching in Mecca. And the numbers as we've been talking about over the last few weeks, we're growing 40 people, 50 people now he's out of the local NGO and different people coming into the mix. And it kind of started to create some rumblings outside of makup. That there's some, there's some unrest in Makkah. There's some rumblings going on in Macau, there's some issues there. And when he heard about this, he immediately sent his brother he said it could be 100 body fat family are a Mahavira junella, the yamo and the hoonah begonia t Hill, homina sama, he said that, go to that valley, referring to Mecca, and find out for me about this individual, find out everything you can

00:08:14--> 00:08:23

about this man who claims that he's a prophet, and that news comes to him from the sky was smart. I mean, only he saw my TV and go and listen to him and then come back to me.

00:08:25--> 00:08:29

So the man went, so the brother of the allamani, goes to Makkah,

00:08:30--> 00:09:02

comes to the Prophet Alayhi Salam sits in and listens to what some of the prophets a lot of these women say. And then returns back to his tribe that people have left our country his brother, without any says right into who listen. So remember, he was sent on a task, just go and listen and come back. So he went, he listened to of course, did the job. I mean, his brother asked him to, but at the same time, what we can assume from the narration is he didn't stay for very, very long. He stayed listen for a little while and then basically brought back some information from there. He said, right at who, Jacobi macadam, Isla Clark.

00:09:03--> 00:09:11

He said that I saw him. And he was telling people instructing people to have good character.

00:09:12--> 00:09:55

I mean, just think about this fact that this, these are the early days of America, there are literally three or four dozen Muslims. They're constantly under attack. All of what we've talked about previously is going on all the you know, but some of the nation see that this was very, very early. Some of the narration say this was right off in the very beginning of Nobu and profit, and Allah knows best, but he says that I saw him so regardless of that fact, in the early period of Islam, few Muslims a couple of dozen Muslims under attack being oppressed. So many different things to worry about, and the prophets Allah He sedums has he had such a heavy emphasis on character on

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

manners, on a flop on the way people conduct themselves, the way people walk?

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

can talk the way they they treat other people. He has such a heavy emphasis on that, that when a man comes from out of town and just kind of sits on the corner on the edge and just listens in a little bit and then returns back, it just so happens that what he hears even at that time is more emphasis on on manners. So think about how heavy of an emphasis that wasn't the Dawa, and the message of the prophets allottee to them, because it matters. Very simply put, because it matters. Do you know the second I talked about this in quite a few sessions back. But the second revelation, according to many of the scholars of lumen peran was the beginning of surah number 68. So

00:10:38--> 00:11:09

we're in the kilala flocon avviene, so that the prophets, Allah, Lisa would know that no matter what period of, you know, Prophethood, or delivering the message or preaching you may be, and no matter what exactly are is the situation or the dynamic, where amongst the people, you have to conduct yourself with the supreme level of matters that you have been granted and given. And at the same time, he's also being told that this needs to be a heavy emphasis in your message in your preaching as well. And so the prophets, a lot of humans preaching this.

00:11:10--> 00:11:17

Because that is a manifestation of the internal condition of the human being.

00:11:18--> 00:11:33

Our manners, how we talk to people, how we conduct ourselves with people, how we deal with people, is a direct, direct, not indirect, it is a direct result in manifestation of what is in our heart, we should make no mistakes, we should have no qualms about that.

00:11:34--> 00:12:07

That's a huge problem we have today, we consider manners almost like the seasoning on top, you know, the little dressing on top, the garnish, that's the word I was looking for the garnish. People don't even know what that is. You don't say useless stuff they put on top of your food when you go to a nice restaurant, right to make you feel better about dropping 20 bucks for a plate, when they put that little useless thing that when you get your plates and first thing you put on the side, that little stuff on the top, that's the garnish. Unfortunately, today, we have the assumption that, you know, this o'clock and manners and such as little garnish on top, but emaan and so law and so yom

00:12:07--> 00:12:09

and dickered until now, that's why

00:12:10--> 00:12:23

but we have to understand not to undermine the importance of those things. But what is my level of sincerity in those things? What is the quality of my prayer in my CRM in my Vicodin mighty lava, will be reflected in my manners in my character, my flock.

00:12:24--> 00:12:32

And so the Prophet talathi someone's emphasizing that hammering away at it. Secondly, if the objective and the mission is for these candles to light more candles

00:12:33--> 00:12:53

for these illuminated hearts to enlighten and illuminate other dark hearts, if that is the objective here, well guess what? That doesn't happen through eloquent speech, it doesn't happen through you know, a pamphlet or a brochure or anything else that happens and that occurs through the character in the manners and how you treat people.

00:12:55--> 00:13:08

So, this heavy emphasis was there so he says, He will be muckety muck luck. I saw him that he was emphasizing commanding people that good character, good manners, good conduct, will cunnamulla who will be shared

00:13:10--> 00:13:30

and he was speaking something that definitely was not poetry. Remember, I believe that all the love line when his brother of course by extension, we can assume that these are educated people, enlightened people, well traveled people. So he says, Look, I've heard quite a bit I've been around the block i've you know, I kind of know what I'm talking about. what he was saying definitely was not poetry, but it was something powerful.

00:13:31--> 00:13:42

So a boozer roti, Allahu anhu says, Masha Antony, Masha Antony, Morocco. He says, You haven't satisfied what I was looking for.

00:13:44--> 00:14:22

Saying, basically, what he's trying to say is, thank you very much. You know, I really appreciate the effort. It's really great. The information you're bringing back. I'm not done yet. I'm not satisfied. I need to know more. But doesn't whether wahama shallot and fee Hama takashima, McAfee machine. So it talks about how he basically packed up prepared, jumped on his transportation and set out immediately towards Mecca. Now when he reaches Mecca, he's looking for the profits a lot of him but he's never seen him before. He doesn't know where to look. He doesn't know who he's looking for. He's trying to look around. And he doesn't want to ask about him. Because he was smart enough to

00:14:22--> 00:14:58

know situation and McKenzie emanations even say that he kind of heard the chitter chatter around the Holloman neuron lukka. Where people you know, he kind of heard you know, some people being kind of angry or upset. So he realized, I can't just straight up walk up to somebody and be like, Hey, who's Mohammed? Because they'll be like, Why? What do you want with him? Are you one of them too, and then I'll be in trouble. So he said I decided to keep to myself and just kind of bide my time. So he says, nighttime King, I sat around the home all day long looking for something. And nighttime came. And actually the narration I kind of I kind of just flew through it in Arabic, but he was in such a

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

hurry without his

00:15:00--> 00:15:24

A businessman, and I'll do what I knew he could, in fact seminar he says that he was actually quite wealthy before Islam. So he could have properly packed his provisions and gotten a bunch of money and taking it and taking a bunch of food on to somebody who was in such a hurry, that yearning for the truth that thirst for the truth was so strong in him that he felt compelled to just leave right away. So you left without any proper preparations.

00:15:25--> 00:16:03

He says, My time came, and I just laid down in the corner of the hot arm, I didn't know what to do, I had nowhere to go. So I just got tired. I just kind of laid down. I figured nobody's coming. Now, let me just pass out and sleep here, like travelers or wafers or, you know, just wanders would just kind of do that. So he said, I just kind of drifters. So he said, I just kind of laid down in the corner, I did have the Allahu taala. on who I live in a young man. He's probably at this point. He's 1314 years old, of course, being trained, or if this is happening earlier than he's 10 1112 years old. So anyways, he's a young man mature for his age. He's a believer, he's being trained directly

00:16:03--> 00:16:40

by the prophets a lot. So imagine you're not just your newbie, but your teacher and your mentor, being Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. So I mean, imagine the quality and the character of this young man. So he's a very observant, intelligent young man, and he looks around and he sees this man sleeping there. And he's a son of obatala. And you know, the logo is the son of a Batali. He knows maca. And he knows the people of mocha. And he says that guy looks like he's from out of town. And he looks like a nice well mannered, well dressed individual out of town sleeping in a corner like that. That doesn't add up. Because if he if he's if he's if the status and he looks and he behaves,

00:16:40--> 00:16:51

and he dresses, then he'd have some money or you know somebody in town, or he'd be able to take a boarding or rooming with somebody. But he's sleeping like that. And he doesn't look like a drifter, like something's not adding up.

00:16:52--> 00:16:55

So I needed a loved one who

00:16:56--> 00:17:01

goes up to him and says that, do you need a place to stay?

00:17:02--> 00:17:07

Do you need a place to say so he says Yes, actually, I do. So because Come with me.

00:17:08--> 00:17:41

I'll make someone free. And he takes him over to you know, maybe I will call him home or, you know, since I needed a lot more I know it's a part of but no Hashem, he takes him over to somebody's house, or guest quarters or a guest room that you know, the family or the tribe has. And he puts him up in there. And he says, Here you go, and you bring him some food and goes, here's some food, eat some food, get some rest. And in the morning, you know, you got to do what you got to do go about your business. So he says, you know, thank you very much. And in the morning, without having a loved one who sets out again goes to the heart and sits down like a hawk. He's keeping an eye on keeping

00:17:41--> 00:17:44

an eye on everything. Hold a passes, nothing happens.

00:17:46--> 00:18:01

So again, he's tired, he's exhausted, he just kind of lies down in the corner, I guess. Their day passes. I leave it at the last minute kind of half half expecting to find him there, again, goes into the huddle and looks around and sees him lying there in the same corner goes Come on. Let's go.

00:18:02--> 00:18:13

So he takes him again, puts him up in the guest quarters, get some some food from the home, feeds him gives him a place to stay room and board. In the morning of withdrawal the loved one who leaves again

00:18:14--> 00:18:15

and then

00:18:16--> 00:18:31

brings him out and come back comes back to the bottom third day now sits around looking around waiting, waiting. He just doesn't know what he's looking for, doesn't know exactly what to do. Another whole day passes lies down again, a little the loved one shows up again.

00:18:33--> 00:18:48

And he says I need a place to stay. And he says Yes, I do. Thank you very much. And he goes with him and this time on the way to the guest quarters of the house. I live with your loved one who asks him

00:18:49--> 00:18:52

a lot to hobbyzone melody, academic.

00:18:54--> 00:19:05

If you don't mind, could you tell me what has brought you to Makkah? Because by the time that was justified is proven time Look, I'm only trying to help. But you kind of seem like you're stuck in this loop.

00:19:06--> 00:19:50

So maybe I can help you out. I'm from here. So what brought you here to Morocco? He says in our tightening. Then we'll meet up and letter Latasha knee for Alto. He says that if you can promise me and give an oath to me, that you will help me then I can tell you. He says for for Allah Akbar. Allahu Allah vilano said I swear Do you swear to God, you have nothing to worry about. You can trust me. So blue thought about the logline who tells him This is why I came. I heard about him and says he's a prophet. He's a messenger. You know, a divine revelation comes to him from the heavens. And I sent my brother my brother kind of came across him talk to him, or heard him at the very least

00:19:50--> 00:19:56

brought me some news back. It only increased my yearning and my thirst for this truth. So I came here and I'm just looking for him.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

So I'll leave it alone. One who says

00:20:00--> 00:20:37

In the UK, we're in a hurry. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says he that is the truth and he is Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says for either as a matter of attorney, he goes, go ahead and stay here in the guest quarters tonight, when it's the morning time, early, early in the morning when people are just kind of starting their day, and everybody's a little preoccupied with themselves. He goes at that time. I'm going to come and get you. I'm going to come by the guest house, I want you to be ready keeping a lookout for me. When you see me passing by. He says I want you to start following after me.

00:20:39--> 00:21:06

And he says that, for in me, he said further as Dr. fata biani you just start following me for me in a day and a half on a kaboom. suganuma he says that if I see anything that kind of worries me, because you're an out of Towner, I don't want you to get in trouble. I don't want you to get picked off or killed or murdered or something. Because that's going on here in America. I'm going to pretend like I'm stopping to kind of look for some water or something like that.

00:21:08--> 00:21:47

And he said you just kind of keep walking by you just stay casual. You keep your pays you just kind of keep going. And don't worry, I'll find you again. I'll get ahead of you somehow you'll see me Don't worry. This might sound smart hood I know what I'm doing. But that's that's the plan. That's the game plan here. So we're gonna go out. So he says they set out and we're in Malaysia for two biani Tata, Hola, mundo mcculley. He goes and keep on following me until I finally enter into somewhere and then you just enter in after me. So he says they did exactly that had da da da Elena v Salalah. Vallejo cinema De Lima who the Allahu anhu reached the Prophet of Allah sallallahu sallam,

00:21:47--> 00:21:54

and without referring to the loved one who came in after I do the 11 minute tour, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was and

00:21:56--> 00:22:32

he sat down and he listened to what the prophets a lot of them had to say. And the narration says that he accepted Islam sitting right then and there. He did not leave he did not have need anything else. He accepted us on right then and there. And then the profits a lot easier. And some narration say he actually stayed there for a couple of days in with the profits a lot. He said I'm at the place about a pump. And finally the profits a lot he told told him inner jelly laugh omega minimum Hata. To Camry. He said Go back to your people and tell them what I've told you until you hear something else from me. I will send a word for you. I won't forget about you. I'll send word to you.

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

when something changes right now you go back to your people and tell them

00:22:37--> 00:22:41

was that rather your loved one who was a different kind of guy?

00:22:42--> 00:22:51

If you want to put it into one word of one or the other without the loved one who is just one of those people that but the youngins would some of the other people call today? He just had swag.

00:22:52--> 00:23:01

All right, I think a lot of what I knew was confident. Those people that are just very, very confident, not arrogant, because that's not a good quality, but just confident.

00:23:02--> 00:23:39

Very, very decisive. Very confident, just very sure of things. They know what they're doing. They know what they're about. And they're confident with what they do. Not that doesn't mean they're not open to correction or learning but when they take a course of action is very confident with it. Without the Ilana was a confident businessman made a lot of money. He was very wealthy before Islam. When he wanted to learn about Islam, he was very confident sent his brother that was the same safe little thing to do. Send the brother so he can keep running the business and be at home. But then that wasn't good enough. That wasn't his style. That's not how we roll. So what did he do? He just

00:23:39--> 00:23:46

set off without even packing to set off went to Makkah just camped out in the harem. I'm not going back until I find out what I came to get.

00:23:47--> 00:24:11

Now when he accepted Islam, he's confident. So he tells the prophets a lot he said we'll let the Baraka be happy. Let us run us Rihanna Bihar, Bina Bharani him. So he says that I swear by the one who sent you with truth. I will not go back until I proclaim my faith in the middle of all these people. I don't care what they think I believe in that's good enough for me.

00:24:12--> 00:24:22

So the narration says he goes to the masjid to the Harlem and he screams out stands in the middle of the huddle and he screams I shadow Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah

00:24:24--> 00:24:38

screams around. Now you can imagine, just imagine that as a scene playing out in your head, he walks into the man on a mission just like conviction, in every ounce of his body, in every cell of his being walks over into the middle of the Harmon screams I shadow a lie.

00:24:40--> 00:25:00

Mohammed Rasulullah. And of course to translate for everyone's benefit I, I give testimony as I bear witness to the truth, the reality the fact that there is no one worthy of worship nothing worthy of worship, but Allah and I bear witness to the reality the truth the fact that Mohammed is a messenger of God.

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

Imagine that saying that with conviction screaming it out, the audacity was at the top of his lungs screaming that

00:25:08--> 00:25:18

and now you're expecting like something amazing is about to happen. Well, something did happen from afar move from a common

00:25:19--> 00:25:35

object. People got up and they were like, Are you out of your mind? Are you crazy? You know, this is my car, right? You know, this is my car, right? He said the people got up, walked over to him and started to beat him and beat him into the ground just started pummeling him.

00:25:36--> 00:25:38

Like just just ganged up on him.

00:25:39--> 00:26:17

Instead of beating them to the ground to the point where it said they laid him out. And he was just in the middle of them just a punching bag at this point. A kicking back at this point. I bass, the uncle of the profits all of a sudden, now we've talked about another one of the uncle's of the profits of Abu lahab so the uncles of the profits are some different uncles, you had a very supportive, very helpful, just didn't accept the faith. You have Hamza abathur, the llama Anima, who would accept Islam. Later on Hamza we talked about last week and of the new ambassador, the loved one who later on eventually would accept Islam, any of Abu lahab Abdullah in support didn't accept

00:26:17--> 00:26:26

and in fact, he oppressed and he opposed. But see, you see the decency within people are bachelor the loved one was a soft hearted man

00:26:27--> 00:26:43

was a soft hearted man, and it shows that he was actually considering and at least listening and considering what the profits or losses are meant to say, when he saw this happening. The narration says our bus or the long run who ran and a bus with the logo on it was described as being very, very tall.

00:26:45--> 00:26:55

extremely tall, not just tall by certain standards, no like freakishly tall. There are narrations that talk about that when a loved one would sit on the moon, sometimes his feet would still teach touch the ground.

00:26:57--> 00:27:15

So based off of those durations, it says in the battlefield, like when that's why in the Battle of Grenada, it was about serving a loved one who was screaming and rallying the troops. And they said that they literally saw him poking out of the crowd, like kind of like a flag him himself. So based off of those durations, you can kind of

00:27:16--> 00:27:53

you can assume that a boss or your loved one was, you know, really, really tall. six foot six, six foot eight, seven feet tall, like a basketball player tall. All right, like if you were on a basketball team, you'd be a senator. That's how tall he was. So our bathroom was very tall. And it said that he had a voice. I was like a boombox like he didn't, you know, like he would need a microphone. So in the profits, a lot of them wanted to sometimes announce something like in a large crowd, he would say to my boss or the loved one, you would then say it for him again. And it was like an announcement everybody till the end of the crowd could hear. So when those people talk, big,

00:27:53--> 00:27:57

old deep, booming voice, so very commanding presence, and it's

00:27:59--> 00:28:26

literally tore through the crowd, went and laid down, covered up laid down on top of abou de la feria de la Juan just covered him up and because being so tall and so huge, he literally was like a tent. He just pitched over him. You just covered him up. And obviously, it's a bass a son of the look on him. So everybody immediately backed away. But I bought something a loved one who was a smart man. So he says to these people, he says, Wait,

00:28:28--> 00:28:30

what's wrong with you people? What's wrong with y'all?

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

Unless

00:28:34--> 00:28:41

he says, Don't you people know that he's from the far he's from the tribal reefer, we're under curry pathology, Camila Sham

00:28:42--> 00:29:06

and that your route to do business and Bilodeau Sham your route to do business in that region, which was a major part of the business because he would go there and sell goods that they have bought from like Yemen, and they would buy more goods that they in Sharma they would bring it back to sell in McCain, Johnson and take it to Yemen. So it was very critical for them said your business Rob goes through the tribe of Clif Bar.

00:29:07--> 00:29:14

So if you kill him here, the tribal he thought he's gonna have it out for us. And you can consider business to be shut down.

00:29:16--> 00:29:27

So you think about this, and immediately everybody just kind of dispersed from there. They're like, yeah, for real for real, like business business, right. So everybody just kind of backed away from there. And they left him.

00:29:28--> 00:29:57

I told you, I will never have a loved one who had confidence, just to the point of just where it's just, I got to do what I got to do. So it said that the next day so my other minella that were found to be mithya for baraboo was auto la he so he says the next day he woke up like kind of recovered that day, kind of like you know, we just covered, recover a little bit, lick your wounds. He says he gets up the next day, goes out back into the harem stands in the middle of a harem as

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

well as your

00:30:00--> 00:30:38

Wonder Mohammed rasulillah everybody's just got easier again. He didn't get enough yesterday. So everybody gets up. All right, here we go again. Everybody walked up and started beating him up again. For a couple of us who are lazy and again Abbasali alone 100 goals and covers him up and again, reprimands everybody like What are y'all doing? You're gonna kill him, you're gonna shut down business for everybody. Think a little bit here. Okay, fine, he's pissing you off. All right, that's fine, I get it. But at the same time, think about the implications of your actions. And again, the people dispersed from there. And some of the narration say that he took him back to the profits a

00:30:38--> 00:30:58

lot. He certainly said, talk some sense into him. He keeps showing up every single day and he gets beat up every single day, he's gonna die. I won't be there every single time to save him. All right, can it just get them under control a little bit. And eventually, the profits will always talk to Abu Dhabi, Allahu anhu. And he kind of calmed down a little bit.

00:30:59--> 00:31:29

This is something that I don't even know if the opportunity presents itself. But just to kind of, you know, kind of tie off the story. I told you a little bit about the personal personality of bubbles that are the logo hunnu which is very confident, very wealthy, very educated before Islam, very proud of being Muslim after accepting Islam. And then as a Muslim as a part of the Muslim community, just very having a lot of strong convictions about what he did and what he believed in.

00:31:30--> 00:31:51

And one of the things we learn about our booth are the alumni No, of course he was one of the prime students of the prophets a lot of humans very knowledgeable about the dean about the religion was very knowledgeable, very wise many other Sahaba young Sahaba all types of our will take counsel and advice from him he was somebody very important to the oma at that time.

00:31:52--> 00:32:11

But one of the things one of the perspectives and it's actually said that the prophets a lot he sent him in a narration that abuser of the loved one who narrates from the prophets a lot ism where he talks about how the dunya and wealth and money will never satisfy never quench the hunger the thirst the desires of them

00:32:13--> 00:32:31

and and one of the narration says one other nation that will not only allow Hanuman areas from the profits a lot he said I'm which he says that the prophets a lot of them said that the son of Adam this human being he says Molly, Maddy my mind my money, my wealth, my house, my car, my bank account, my my mind.

00:32:32--> 00:33:01

And the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam says, In what way am I know who what belongs to him? What is his except for the food that he eats, the clothes that he wears to the point where he wears them out so that they're tattered and they they're completely done like they're patched up and tattered, or money that he gives him to sell the car into charity that belongs to him everything else, that a human being has any clothes, my my, my friend, the hutaree cartoon, then it's just to be left behind for somebody else.

00:33:02--> 00:33:35

It's something that's left behind, either in real exchange hands and go to somebody else, or it'll be inherited by him by his inheritors by his family. But it doesn't belong to Him, the only thing that actually ends up legitimately belonging to a human being is food that he eats and consumes and digest. Okay, that was his, he used it legitimately used it up, or clothes that he wore out to the point of just falling apart at the seams. That was his he used it up completely, or the wealth that he gave away in southern charity. That is his, because that's a reward deposited for him in the hereafter nothing else is.

00:33:36--> 00:33:52

It seems that because of these types of narrations, it had such a profound impact on him, that abuser or a loved one who again, that confidence manifested itself, then he became very, very strict in this regard.

00:33:53--> 00:33:56

He became very strict in this regard.

00:33:57--> 00:34:09

And he basically lived life with the philosophy that the food that you absolutely eat, like you will consume that food today. Or the clothes that are just the clothes on your back,

00:34:10--> 00:34:13

just to be able to cover your body respectfully.

00:34:15--> 00:34:23

Aside from that, or the roof over your head, or the basic mode of transportation that you need, outside of this bare minimum.

00:34:25--> 00:34:37

Everything else that you have is unnecessary is frivolous, and it is extravagance. And we will be questioned about this on the Day of Judgment, and it's a liability and I can't live with that liability.

00:34:38--> 00:35:00

He considered everything else. So the food that's on your plate, the clothes that are on your back, and maybe one extra pair of clothes, the one basic humble mode of transportation that you need to basically get around and the basic minimum space that you need to live in and house your family and outside of that he considered everything else will be a liability, a spiritual liability. And he would say it's

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

said that literally outside of that amount, he would spend everything in anything else that he had in his possession every single day you would empty it out, empty it out, empty it out.

00:35:10--> 00:35:15

And he would not go to sleep with it still in his possession. That was his philosophy.

00:35:16--> 00:35:51

And that's how we lived life. There's even a story of narration about a Tabby going tub without all the Allahu anhu saying you're one of the oldest, you know, and, and in one narration, and this is, this has a reconciliation to it. But I believe that all the Aloha onion says that I was the fourth person to accept Islam. The clarification for that is the first person that he knew in terms of his own personal knowledge, but it said that there were more than three other people who had accepted Islam at the time that he did. But he said that at that time, based off of the people that he publicly knew who are Muslim, so he was somebody came to me Batavia income statement says, You're

00:35:51--> 00:35:56

one of the longest standing oldest tenured veteran Sahaba of the prophets allottee Center.

00:35:57--> 00:36:04

I mean, you're old school. So I want to learn from you. He told him, he said, Listen young, and I really don't think you're cut out for this.

00:36:06--> 00:36:30

So he's not I want to learn from you. I want to live with you. I want to learn with you, I want to learn from you and I will serve you I'll do work, I'll pay my way. I'll take care of myself and all I'll basically earn my stay my keep. So he said, Okay, well, one thing that we conflate these days is we don't quite understand what learning really is. You know, if we went to somebody to a chef, and we said, You know, I want to learn

00:36:31--> 00:36:46

and he said, Okay, take out the garbage. You're like, I don't think you heard me. I think maybe I can, you know, maybe you need to update the hearing aid. I said, I want to learn. He's like, yeah, go vacuum the masjid. See, I? I'm a tabula.

00:36:47--> 00:36:50

Right, we kind of have like that, that base in our voice when we say audible.

00:36:53--> 00:36:54

And it echoes on in our head, audible.

00:36:56--> 00:37:02

Right? And it's like, I'm not here to do menial labor. I'm here to learn.

00:37:03--> 00:37:15

You know, and so we don't quite understand the two but the first step of learning used to be sigma. Because you had to be trained you needed to be the soil has to be turned before you put a seed in the ground.

00:37:16--> 00:37:25

These days, we have hard hearts, and we just throw a bunch of knowledge on there and it doesn't go nowhere. It just sits on top which What is up for an example for knowledge is sitting on top of

00:37:27--> 00:37:54

the mountain Yeah, Louis Farrakhan. Right. It's, it's, it's a donkey carrying books. That's what we are, which is a hard service. With a bunch of books sitting on our weird donkey, we are the donkey carrying books, or I am at the very least, May Allah forgive me and guide all of us. But you turn the soil and when you turn the soil, then the seed goes in the ground, then the water penetrates the earth, and then something beautiful for sprouts inside and then grows out.

00:37:56--> 00:37:58

And that's something that doesn't go nowhere.

00:37:59--> 00:38:17

And that's why the example that Allah gives for true knowledge and true human in the Quran is kashia Jonathan pica. It's a beautiful tree. Like the redwoods, like these huge, magnificent, beautiful trees that are hundreds of years old, that are older than the people living on the earth.

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

That that's the example of true knowledge. Because when the seed goes inside, and the water goes inside, and that seed sprouts inside and grows out from there, and is able to grab its roots, then it's put then it puts something out for the world to see and benefit from. But we're concerned about that outside part before the internal part.

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

We don't worry about the internal but we don't worry about having roots we just want to we just want it on full display.

00:38:44--> 00:38:51

And what happens is something that's just sitting on top of something a little bit of wind can come and knock it over a little bit of wind can come and carried away

00:38:52--> 00:38:55

that's that's the reality of it. But if something's in the ground,

00:38:56--> 00:39:06

I mean I remember one time this this must have been in a small town I think it's somewhere in Arkansas, I forget the name of it now. Conway Arkansas,

00:39:07--> 00:39:38

no reason for me to even know that. But so I went to the small Noma, small little community in Conway Arkansas, and it was breathtaking. The machine there's a house in old house that they bought made into a machine in the front yard of the house, I'm not lying to you, you know, and you know, sometimes in the countryside in smaller places, you know, they have more land. So even if it's a small house, it's sitting on a pretty decent chunk of land. So if the front lawn of the house is maybe like half the size of this, we'll select right here.

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

The front lawn was just like half the size of this was a pretty big, generous front lawn. So people could come up and park on the front lawn or in the driveway and things like that.

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

literally half of that was taken up by a tree stump. A quarter of that was taken up by a tree stump. That tree stump was so big that probably seven or eight of us could stand on it.

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

breathtaking.

00:40:02--> 00:40:22

But it was just a tree stump it was he was probably about a foot off the ground, there's probably a foot maybe two feet up off the ground. And or I think they kind of left the two feet just so you could put some chairs around the user as a table or something. Right. So it was about two feet up off the ground. And it was huge, humongous.

00:40:24--> 00:40:56

And I was just baffled by this. I was just looking at it staring at it. And I actually ended up asking them I was like, Okay, this is kind of in the middle of your property. You could probably Park more cars here. Do some other stuff with this little you know, area. Why do you just kind of cut the tree off your winch? Just take it out of the ground? Like, yeah, you wish. Right? Like, yeah, so just that easy learner, we just take the tree out of the ground and go, he said, he said that the roots of it are so deep that it'd be we'd have to dig up like the entire like house and the entire property, we'd have to dig up part of the street, just to get the roots of this out of the

00:40:56--> 00:40:59

ground that sits behind a lot. That's what deep roots are.

00:41:00--> 00:41:13

And so that's what true learning is. So this man shows up by eleuthero the body, not the loved one when he's like, Alright, you want to learn what you're going to start off by doing some work. We gotta we gotta turn this on. We got to get you ready to get this knowledge

00:41:14--> 00:41:22

in so you put them to work. You don't kind of running some tasks, and you're looking after the animals cleaning up the property and kind of just doing the tasks.

00:41:23--> 00:41:24

He tells him He goes,

00:41:25--> 00:41:42

part of your responsibility will be that when sometimes people come to get some silvercar get some Zakat, get some charity, financial assistance. Sometimes people come to ask for financial so that they know what's up without the fatty radi Allahu anhu great Sahabi Rasool the great Sahabi of the messenger salami Sana.

00:41:43--> 00:41:55

Zach Hello, hello. So they'll get they're gonna come to get some get some financial systems, if I have something to offer to them, you must give them the best of what I own.

00:41:57--> 00:42:14

The best of what I own has to be given to them. That's my policy. That's how I roll. That's what I do. And that will be your job and your responsibility as my personal assistant, as my student, you got to do what I asked you to do. What I'm asking you to do is when somebody comes to get some donations, and I have something to give you give them the best of what I have available.

00:42:16--> 00:42:25

So somebody comes to ask for some financial assistance without having a loved one where two camels at that time. One was a big camel, one was a smaller camel.

00:42:26--> 00:42:53

And the people will basically like a group of families that come saying we're very hungry, we're starving, we need some food. So he saw he had two camels. So he said, what they basically needed to do was take one of the camels slaughter One, two camels, cut it up, distribute the meat amongst these poor, starving families. But the loved one who said that there's two camels, excuse me, the student, this young tab here, he says there are two camels one's big and strong and one's kind of smaller and weak.

00:42:54--> 00:43:12

So he says, since all they're going to do is eat the animal, then we need the meat of the animal for them. Why don't I give them the smaller weaker animal because of who that requires one animal but for the transportation for him and his family. And a bigger, stronger animal is more logical for transportation.

00:43:14--> 00:43:21

multiple people can ride on it, you can tie all your equipment on it makes sense. And the animals is going to be eaten Let it be the smaller, weaker animal.

00:43:22--> 00:43:39

So he gives a smaller weaker animal without or the Allahu anhu is kind of taking an assessment kind of of the day's activities. Oh, yeah, some families came they're very starving, very hungry, they needed some food. So you know, we gave one of the camels he goes, did not have two camels. He goes, Yeah, he goes, which camel did he give to them?

00:43:41--> 00:43:45

And they said that small old camel, the weak one

00:43:46--> 00:43:48

was Come here. What I tell you

00:43:49--> 00:43:50

what I tell you.

00:43:51--> 00:44:30

Because you said to give the best thing available and he goes in that was this camera right here. Because but you know, transportation, and you know this, and I was thinking and you know, like I'm but you know, I was thinking this and I was thinking that and that's usually a very dangerous line of thinking is to even think right at that point in time at that place. So he says, No, no, no, I asked you to do something. I don't care about your logic and your reasoning. He goes, will you stand on the day of judgment and answer on my behalf to Allah? about why I gave the smaller weaker older animal for some for hungry families to eat instead of the good young, healthy, strong camel? Are you

00:44:30--> 00:44:35

going to answer for me on the day of judgment? Can you defend me before almost? No, I didn't think so.

00:44:36--> 00:44:39

So then you don't get to make that call. That was

00:44:41--> 00:44:48

that was how he was. And so the story basically about him goes that because he lived with this philosophy.

00:44:49--> 00:45:00

And this shows you the human side of the Sahaba rhodiola Juana that they were human beings in his old age, like any elderly gentleman, or any elderly person for

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

matter when people get a little bit older, they they get a little bit short tempered or a little bit short, you know, in their, in their tolerance for times with other people, and they get a little bit more easily angry or upset or frustrated, just old age naturally. So I think a lot more I know as an older man now and he was alive till the time of death he left of Earth man found out the loved one, or the Allahu anhu. So because of that, Islam was spreading. The Sahaba did that that era where it was a mix between initially in the time of Abu Bakar and the beginning of the 11 minute mark, it was more Sahaba lesser, like other people like to have your own and then eventually kind of became equal

00:45:43--> 00:45:44

halfway through the funnel.

00:45:45--> 00:46:24

And towards the end of the 11 Ramadan Elano, it was more of your own and lesser Sahaba. In the time of ours monitor the loved one I knew it was continuing to go in the other direction. So in more more Tabby, and they're obviously not Sahaba. They weren't taught and trained by the prophet sallallahu sallam, Islam, the Empire was spreading and spreading widen farther. So because of that more money and more, you know, spoils of war and just more natural resources were pouring into Medina from all different parts of these worlds. And so naturally, Medina was becoming a little bit more well to do. People were a little more more affluent. They weren't there in the early days of Mecca, you know, to

00:46:24--> 00:46:39

eat leaves off of trees and chew on deep pits and be tortured near death. These were not the people. So if you see they were a little bit more comfortable in how they lived, and without a loved one or being a little bit older of a gentleman. He just couldn't take it.

00:46:40--> 00:47:03

Until it said that he would reprimand people. He sees somebody with some really nice baller clothes on be like, what's what's wrong with you? Anywhere and over their nice clothes, your shoes match your shirt? Right? Right. So he would start reprimanded by the way that was a shot at myself. But he said, you know, what's wrong with you? What are you doing over here? see somebody with like, you know, riding a horse with another horse tied up to it?

00:47:05--> 00:47:43

You kidding me? Seriously? Are you writing both horses at the same time? No. Then why do you have two horses? Right? If you would see somebody hungry or somebody poor, you would just lose it? How is there a poor person? Medina, when we got all these? Well to do people in Medina, How's it possible there's a poor person, he would just he would get really angry and upset and frustrated. And so it's actually said that Arthur model of the logo, I know because community first. And because they were brothers, they had been there since the early days of Mecca. So he had the ability to go and sit down with him. He's like, what's going on? Man, bro, what's going on with you? I missed the days of

00:47:43--> 00:47:51

the profits a lot. It's I mean, he goes, I know you do. We all do. But I know that you do. Because everybody knows that you do. Because he's just so upset.

00:47:52--> 00:47:54

He said, Listen, look, it is what it is.

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

And, look, what these people are doing is not impermissible. It's wrong.

00:48:01--> 00:48:18

And it's my job as the leader of the community, to manage the whole community, different people, different backgrounds, different levels of practicing different levels of taqwa. Look, nobody's doing something wrong. But these are different levels of taqwa. And that's going to be there in the community. And that's my job to manage the community.

00:48:19--> 00:48:37

But I understand you're frustrated, and I respect your right to be frustrated, but you're causing a little bit of disruption in the community. So I'm gonna need you to tone it down. But see, the problem is I've known you for 20 years. So I know you can't tone it down. You're oblivious. That's how you roll. So here's the best scenario.

00:48:38--> 00:48:39

Why don't you

00:48:40--> 00:49:07

go and take up a residence outside of Medina, kind of like a retirement, like plan, go live on the ranch, go live on the farm retirement plan, you go live out there, everything will be taken care of. You come back and visit regularly, I'll come visit you all of us old guys, we'll get together, we'll still do our thing, but it will just provide you some peace of mind. And it'll make a little bit running of the community a little bit easier for me, because people respect you, nobody wants to disrespect you, your

00:49:08--> 00:49:09

loved one

00:49:10--> 00:49:25

began to understand you put me in a tight spot here. And it's not healthy for you either to be so upset all the time. And so without the Allahu anhu moved a little bit outside of Medina and basically lived out his days there. And that's the story of the Allahu anhu accepted assignment those early days.

00:49:26--> 00:49:50

I told you, I would keep it short. I'm just gonna cover this one last quick little story. It's very short story. And when Shall I end with that and so that next week, we can move on to a new topic. There's a story about another man in those early days of Makkah, accepting Islam. It's a very fascinating story. That's I want to tell this particular story. This the story of the Mad the Mad radi Allahu anhu.

00:49:51--> 00:49:59

It said about ignore Ambassador the Allahu luminaries as Mr. Muslim mentioned this particular narration is so hate this from the Sahaba of Mr. Muslim

00:50:00--> 00:50:11

homolog of tada that this maddening demand came to Makkah. And it said that this manly mod was from Yemen. He was from one of the tribes of Yemen so he had traveled out to Mecca.

00:50:12--> 00:50:15

And he was very well known for being

00:50:16--> 00:50:20

what would they would call in that time is like a soothsayer.

00:50:21--> 00:50:57

Kind of, I guess you could call it kind of like a gin buster. Right. So, you know, if somebody had like any, you know, gender related issues, or there was some black magic type of spooky stuff going on or something like that, then he was basically the person that would be called in to kind of handle the situation if somebody got very, very sick. And you know, people were very superstitious before Islam. So in their superstitions, if they thought this was some evil effect, or evil Omen or something like that, Lima was the kind of guy that you called in, and he would do his little, you know, Hocus Pocus, dance around, spit on the guy, do whatever he did, to basically take away

00:50:57--> 00:51:35

whatever evil effect was going on. That's what the mob did. That's that was his business. That's what he did. So he comes to Mecca, I guess, for business just to see if anybody needs any help in that area. And he heard some, you know, some of the hooligans, you know, some of the street people, you know, some of the troublemakers on the street. Because, you know, when you kind of work in that line of business, then you kind of move around some dark alleys and things like that. So the Mark was very comfortable in that whole scene. He was great. He was comfortable with being around crazy people. So he's kind of walking around at night through some dark alleys and he's hears some shady

00:51:35--> 00:51:40

characters or some, you know, troublemakers and stuff talking about the Prophet salani Center.

00:51:41--> 00:52:16

They're talking about Mohammed medulin. They're talking about how Mohammed is crazy about his urine about that when I have to be louder talking in this way. So he goes up to some of them and it goes in a half hour in a half hour. Roger, where can I find this guy that you're talking about that? Is this crazy? And he's causing this many problems? Hopefully, maybe I can provide a little bit of relief for his insanity because that's what I do. You know, it's probably some gin some crazy stuff going on. So he says he narrates his narration himself. He says feel lucky to Mohammedan so I finally found out where can I find this man so I can help him out. And I meet the prophets a lot he

00:52:16--> 00:52:35

said them and you know, like, somebody doesn't have a line of work, you know, like he's like an insurance salesman, right? So he kind of pulls out his card and he goes money with demand you know, I can help people. That's what I do. I help people. So why wouldn't I try to help you? I think you look like you get some use some help. You know, I heard I heard some stuff about you and maybe you could use some assistance.

00:52:37--> 00:52:40

So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:52:41--> 00:52:48

so he tells him Maybe I can help you tell me what's going on with you. Tell me tell me tell me what's going on with you. I'm not diagnose you I help you. I'll fix you.

00:52:50--> 00:52:53

So the prophets Allah they sell them says, In Alhamdulillah

00:52:54--> 00:53:07

nama do who wanna sarina who? mega de la who follow Medina. Woman you Lin fella howdy Anna. eyeshadow, La ilaha illAllah, WA de hula sharika,

00:53:08--> 00:53:17

the prophet of Allah salani some says, without a shred of a doubt, the ultimate praise was in will always be for Allah alone.

00:53:18--> 00:53:53

We praise Him and we seek his assistance. We asked him for help in everything we do. Whoever whomsoever Allah guides, there's not a force on this earth that can misguide him. And whoever Allah misguides leads astray. There's not a force on this earth that can give guidance to that person. I bear witness and I give testimony that this Allah that I speak of, there's nothing and no one worthy of worship except for him. And I and why the hula sharika lahu and he is absolutely unique in this regard. And he has absolutely no partners in any way, shape or form.

00:53:55--> 00:54:06

And the prophets, Allah said this, the narration says the mud looks at the prophets a lot he said them and he says are either Alia climatical holla. Say it again.

00:54:07--> 00:54:31

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, okay, remember the mods that guy right walks up with this card. Hey, my name's Emma, I help people. Right And now the prophet SAW some drops these words on him and the mother. See, see it again? See it again? The prophet SAW some sense Okay, relax. It's okay. In Alhamdulillah Nakamoto monastery No. meah de la la Medina. Woman you live in

00:54:32--> 00:54:36

a Chateau La ilaha illallah wa de la sharika.

00:54:38--> 00:54:47

The narration says the man says are either Alia Kalamata Hola, he is here again. And some narration say that even said for Karbala. Now.

00:54:50--> 00:55:00

It's an expression in Arabic that literally translates to because these words have reached the middle of the ocean. Which basically what it means is it's blue

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

In my mind

00:55:02--> 00:55:17

these are this is the most mind blowing thing I've ever heard. This is more powerful than anything I've ever heard in my entire life. You have to say it again are either on a kinematic Allah Please say it again. And it said the third time the prophets Allah said in Al Hamdulillah

00:55:18--> 00:55:32

nama oneness Is there a new mayor de la Fernando de nada mejor de falla, hodja de la ilaha illallah wa la sharika

00:55:33--> 00:55:39

and by the time the third time the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said this, the month finally felt like

00:55:41--> 00:55:52

like he had gotten something. And he said, look at Samir jukola kahina wahconah, Sahara wahconah shuara. He says, I have heard the words of soothsayers,

00:55:53--> 00:56:01

soothsayers, like you know, exorcise soothsayers. I have heard the words of magicians,

00:56:03--> 00:56:24

sorcerers and magicians. I have heard the words of poets from us, America, Mithra, Hakuna and kalimat I have never heard anything like this ever before in my life. And then look what he says, For Hulu medica. Give me your hand before he wanted to handle the process. Awesome. So you could diagnose him. He could check him.

00:56:25--> 00:56:37

See what was wrong with him. Now he says, Please give me your hand. We'll buy you Obi eurocon Allen Islam. So I can give you the the oath and the pledge of Islam.

00:56:38--> 00:56:55

Like I can accept Islam on your hand, holding your hand in between my hands. Please give me your hand. For by Yahoo Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the prophets a lot of them held his hand and made him say the Shahada, and gave him Islam like gave him the Shahada, and allowed him to accept Islam.

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

And then he said, why not? Oh, Mika, will you also take this message to your people?

00:57:03--> 00:57:19

And make sure that your people accept Islam in the same way you just accepted Islam? He said, Why not call me because yes, I promise you, I will take this to my people and I and I'm confident that they will accept Islam and they will listen to me and I will not stop I will not rest until they've all accepted Islam.

00:57:20--> 00:57:35

It said that many many years later. Many years later, this is in the Medina days. That many years later, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent out a group of Sahaba to go and preach and take the message.

00:57:36--> 00:57:43

And along their journey, and they were sent out in the direction in which the mods tribe lived in.

00:57:44--> 00:57:49

So they went and they passed by the people of Lima.

00:57:50--> 00:58:36

And Amir of the Jays, the Emir of the Syria, the Jays, he asked his people have a subdomain, Ha, Ha and so he camped out near this tribe, and before they were about to leave, they said, Did any one of you take anything from these people? Did anybody take anything from these people? And one man said that, yes, I took something, a subdomain who Mata Ratan, he said that I took basically a lot of from these people, all right, matara, or mithuna, excuse me, in the Arabic language refers to a small little container that can be used to fill up with some water to clean oneself from you know, use, maybe while going to the restroom, and even make will do from and things like that. So he said, you

00:58:36--> 00:59:04

know, for those who know, the older terminology is called Lota. Alright, so he said a water jug is smaller than water jug that's used for purification purposes. So one guy said, Yeah, yeah, you know, I mean, we went into town, and we were kind of, you know, buying or taking care of anything we needed. And I saw like a little water container in maybe, you know, in the public area where there was water where there was a water pump, there was a little water container there. So I took it because we needed the the leader of the army said, we're

00:59:05--> 00:59:19

going to return it back to them. I mean, generally speaking, you have to return it back to them. But then specifically, he said, would allow him for in demand. He says, return it back to them, especially because these are the people of the man.

00:59:20--> 00:59:22

That man that came to the profits a lot a center

00:59:23--> 00:59:59

and accepted Islam with the profits, a lot of them held the hand of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and swore his allegiance to the prophets, a lot of them and swore that he would take the message back to his people until all of his people also accepted Islam and became loyal to the prophets, a lot of them as well. So go back and return this water container, this Lota back to the people of the mount. And so that's another little interesting, touching early story. From the early days of macabre, one of the very unique interesting people accepted Islam. We'll go ahead and end here. I know I would make I said I would make it a little bit shorter.

01:00:00--> 01:00:24

What do you have to do? We talk about the profits a lot. He said I really don't care about watching election coverage and plus when you go back, they're probably still going to be talking about it. So May Allah subhanaw taala accept from all of us. May Allah subhanaw taala bring us closer to the example of the prophets, a lot of them and May Allah grant us all the love for Allah and His Messenger Allah Subhana Allah He will be from the E.
