While Allah He was Sufi edge Marine,
inshallah, continuing on our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a certain number via the prophetic biography.
We have been speaking about the fifth, the end, the fourth and the fifth year of nimueh of prophethood, the fourth in the fifth year of the prophets allottee sermons message in the city of Mecca. So this is the first four or five years of the Sita and particularly in terms of the fourth year of the CETA. What we've been talking about what we've seen is that the Prophet of Allah Salah asylums message when public, the
flow of people accepting Islam has steadily been increasing, both within Mecca, even from outside of Mecca, you increasingly have these instances. So these rare occasions, these anomalies started to become commonplace, where almost every other day, once a week, couple of times a week, you had somebody coming in from other areas from out of town, hearing about this message, finding the prophets a lot. He said, I'm interacting with him and then accepting Islam. And in some cases, they were staying there back in Makkah, and in most cases, they were being sent back to their people. So you see that slowly, but steadily, Islam is continuing to grow, and the numbers of the Muslims are
continuing to increase and diversify. And for obvious reason, this is of great concern to the people in Mecca. And the operational leadership of the Federation is not happy with this trend at all. What we talked about in the previous session was
that they are actually in the past few previous sessions, we've talked about how they decided to kind of strategize, they decided that we need some strategy to our response. So one of the strategies that they had was okay, let's go to Abu Talib and terrible Talib. Come on, you need to check your nephew you need to get them under control. He's becoming a real problem here for us. So we saw obviously that that did not end up working and that didn't turn out so well. Because I will daunted the uncle of the profits a lot he said I'm first and foremost cause the profits a lot he said I'm and when the profits a lot he said it makes a very impassioned plea to Abu Talib, about
what the prophets Allah is trying to accomplish. Abu Talib instead put your support behind the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and tells him nephew you do what you have to do. I'm right here behind you. By your side I'm not going anywhere. My support for you is unwavering.
Secondly, Abu Talib himself decides
that I need to I need to basically be able to at least provide protection to the prophets Allah a Salaam and use a sense of loyalty that the people of Makkah operation so big on use that to my advantage and the profits a lot he sums advantage. So what I will tell him does, he gathers boo Hashem together and says, basically, look, we're all about respect for the family, respect for the tribe, we stick with our own. Mohammed is one of our own. Whether you agree with him or not, you cannot deny the fact that he's one of us. He's the grandson of the greater Abdulmutallab. So we gotta we gotta protect ourselves. Because fine, you might not agree with Mohammed, but if they come
and they attack Mohammed or they kill Muhammad, well, guess what? They've disrespected you and your family. And what are you gonna say about that tomorrow? No disrespect you as well directly. So then Ben Ohashi puts a public statement out there saying Mohammed is untouchable. Nobody lay a hand on Mohammed Salah de Sena. So this was one strategy of the Croatia they had that really didn't work out. A second strategy of the Quraysh was okay, let's intellectually try to challenge Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, what they decided to do is and we talked about this in the last session, they basically go to urge bobbin or BIA, who is a great leader of the Qureshi, a very well
educated, respected, well traveled man and he goes to the profits a lot he sentiment basically reprimands him like an elder. This was a man that even a Buddha used to go to Council for. So his authority and his wisdom was, you know, unanimously accepted in Mecca. So he goes to the prophets a lot a sentiment as an elderly statesman, someone reprimands the prophets a lot he said them and the prophets a lot of him and his the wisdom and the Hikmah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that instead of responding to him directly, because there was only one or two efficient
An elderly person reprimands, you doesn't ask you for reprimand you. There's one of two things you do. Either you apologize, in which case you are basically, you know, you're you're, you're admitting that you were wrong. So either you apologize and therefore concede. So it's a concession, which would not be correct because of profits. A lot of these would be moving off of a stance that no, I'm right. And he was right. Or you tell him No, I'm right, and you're wrong. And in that case, what are you doing, you're disrespecting an elder, which contradicts the the morals of the Quran, the values of the Quran, it directly contradicts the teachings of the prophets allowing for them. And if the
goal and the objective is your people and winning over the favor of your people, then what it does in that particular cases, it actually sets you back in your own cause. Because now the people say, look at this man. Look how we speak to our elders, he doesn't have any dignity or respect or honor for anyone. So the prophets a lot. He's a very intelligently, very wisely, the prophet of Allah salami, Sam just says Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem. And he begins reciting surah, number 41, sort of facilite.
What happens as a result in a consequence of that, and the prophet SAW some very interestingly, chooses sort of facilite, that it has such an impact on algebra, a Boolean algebra that he goes back to his people, just completely dumbfounded, literally disappears for a couple of days, finally comes back out with a public statement, saying that, and he actually tells some of the leadership of the police, that this is unlike anything I've ever heard. This is not magic. It's not poetry, it's none of these things. But, you know, this is unlike anything I've ever heard, this is not man made. And then finally, you know, obviously, the leadership of footage goes in and say, we can't afford this.
We cannot afford this right now. Because everybody looks to you, we can't have you also going over to that side. So finally comes out and makes a very false, unfortunate public statement that Oh, it was very strong magic, unlike which I've ever interacted or encountered. So therefore, it had such an impact and effect on me that it took me a couple of days to recover. And what you saw for me initially, as a reaction was just that magic, literally hitting me in the face. It hit me like a train. And so I didn't know I was just kind of dumbfounded dumbstruck by. So this is his response. And we talked about how the profits realized he was very upset at this responsive algebra, and how a
lot disapproved of this. One of the things that I forgot to mention was that the if absolutely nothing had been mentioned in regards to urdhva. But they are also mentioned in regards to Walid bin mahira. And when he'd been Molina was another leader of the Federation, not quite of the stature or the level of arts about Raja was more of a cultured individual. Whereas when even Molina was more of a political leader of the Federation, well, even Molina also confronts the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the prophets, Allah vsam recite the Quran to him as well. And it literally his colors start to change and he gets freaked out, and he comes back to the forage. And then similarly he says that
oh, this is just fancy poetry that Mohammed has come up with and what happens as a result and a consequence of that is a last kind of Rotella reveals the eye out and sort of number 74 saying Wu woman Hala to wahida which are ultra Humala, mom Duda Baba Nina Xu da ma hace la whoo Tomita through Maya tomorrow and as each color in the who can only Aya Tina, Anita? So otter Hippo, who's our Oda, that Allah subhanaw taala basically says, leave me to deal with that liar, that we gave him all of these blessings. And what he does at the end of all of that is he lies and he slanders, and he speaks false. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, I will deal with him. And I will deal with him very
severely and very sternly. So this was the second strategy of the operation, the third strategy of the operation. To counter that message of the Prophet Tillotson, which we've talked about what's torture, physical aggression, violence. And that became very overwhelming, especially when the first two strategies failed. They kept falling back on this third strategy, till the time finally came at the beginning of the fifth year of the message of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam where they basically were full the violence and the aggression was full scale and a couple of sessions ago, we talked about a small sampling of that, and how severe it was. The violence, the aggression, the oppression,
how really severe it was, and how it was unbearable for the Muslims. At that point in time, the prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam did something, which shows us a lot about the prophets, allottee cinema.
The Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam basically gathered many of the weak and the oppressed of the Muslims together.
He basically told them that it is time for you to now go and take refuge. You need to go and find a safe place to live where you will not be violated or you will not be oppressed. And you can live safely and freely. It is time for you to go outside of America and go find a place to live at a place like this. And the place of profits a lot of them had in mind that he specifically told them to go to was Abyssinia, Eastern Africa,
the Horn of Africa and the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. At this point in time. It just tells us a lot about the Prophet sallallahu sallam. First and foremost, the numbers of the Muslims are finally reaching a good level.
By this time, there are well over 100 believers, which gives them Muslim strength gives them community gives them, you know, support and solidarity. But the prophet of Allah salatu salam, in spite of that, he puts that aside, and he puts the well being the safety, the security, the life, the property of his followers. First, he gives that priority. And he says that their safety is more important to me than having a larger number, having larger numbers in a larger community. And that's great, that shows great wisdom on behalf of the prophets, a lot of them and that shows what an empathetic leader he was that empathy. And the well being and the safety of his followers was his
primary concern. So he puts that first and foremost and says, I'm willing to lose their numbers and mcca as long as they can find safe, you know refuge, they can be saved, they can find refuge there in Abyssinia. So this is the first thing that the prophets a lot of Islam takes into consideration. Secondly, the scholars also mentioned the fact that the Prophet of Allah Salafi, some understood that in the position of being a leader, it was his job and his responsibility to be well informed, to be well educated and well informed. And to understand, you know, what were the options that were available.
And so the profits alarmism if you will had done his research, he had found out that there is a Christian King. So first and foremost the fact that he is a follower of a you know, revealed religion monotheistic faith identifies with the idea of Scripture and Prophethood in the Buddha and life of the year after that, first and foremost, we have more common ground with him than we do with these people these idol worshipping people in place.
Secondly, and Najafi, the king of Abyssinia, was well known for his religious tolerance.
To the extent that there is historically there is the mention of the fact that there were many religious minorities many minority communities that lived in His Kingdom at that time, from Jews to even the idol worshippers fire worshippers and Medusa Yun, there were many different religious minorities that safely live there under his protection.
And so, the prophet of Allah salatu salam, having researched this issue was well informed. And that also shows us that it is the responsibility of leadership to also be well informed about the things that are going on in the other, you know, other nations and other people in other communities and keep tabs on these types of things.
Lastly, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
send them to Abyssinia and put this option on the table for them, that you have to understand that even going to have a senior was not an easy path was not an easy road. But the prophet of Allah ceylonese him understood that some people will prefer undertaking an arduous journey, as long as there's some type of safety on the other side of this. And so the Prophet of Allah salon he said, I'm researches this finds out that yes, this safe
community is present there. And then the Prophet of Allah salatu salam provides this option in this opportunity to some of the oppressed Muslims in Mecca at that time.
So it's mentioned in the books of Hadith in the books of narration
that in the month of Raja from the fifth year of prophethood. So this is a little bit past the middle of the, of the fifth year of the message in Makkah, that the Prophet of Allah salatu salam gathered some of the believers in Mecca together and basically said, I want to propose for those who would like to who need to that they go to Abyssinian they migrate there, and they explore the opportunity of living there freely and safely.
And it said that at that time, about 16 people
The first initial group of people who went were seminaries and say 15, some say 16. Because one of the names is somewhat discussed or disputed. So about 15 to 16 people out of them were there were 11, or 12. For men and for women, the four women who went were wives of four of the gentlemen who are going, and the rest of the men who went the Sahaba, who went, they were single, they were not married, but yet they were the object of severe violence and oppression. And so this initial group of 1516 people they set out, and their names are actually recorded and mentioned. It said that the
they're the first ones that the Prophet of Allah syllogism basically designated to migrate to Abyssinia was none other than Earth man been a fan? Probably a lot more I knew who was tied up who was held hostage and captive by his own family. And the loved one was a very dignified person before I saw him, I talked about him. And now he was one of those people who has said to never have drank alcohol or fornicated or done anything bad be even before Islam. And he came from a very powerful wealthy family as well. But the thing was that his own family was the were the ones who were oppressing him, his own families, his own family, were the ones who were torturing him. And so the
Prophet of Allah salon he soon picked up a thermometer the loved one I know that the wife of our thermometer the Allahu anhu was Rokia the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the second of the daughters of the prophets a lot he said them. So the Prophet of Allah Azza wa sallam first designated this couple. He then also designated a boo hoo they've been Atiba and his wife, Salah Zubaydah, Bina awam Mousavi nomade Rahman bin Abu Salah, and his wife ooh Salama, who would later on after Abu Salah would pass away would become the wife of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. earthmen been mother own Ahmed bin Rebecca and his wife Layla beans Abou hasma
abou sobre and then the sixth one who is disputed. Some say he was having been amor, some say he was Abdullah bin Masood. But the more authentic narration says that Abdullah bin Masood actually went with the second wave of immigrants, which we'll talk about in just a second. But the 16th one who is disputed is Khalid bin Ahmed. So these were the first 16 people who migrated to Abyssinia left America and went to East Africa.
And it said that they basically left that night, they snuck out at night out of Makkah, they did not even have enough rides in enough animals transportation for all of them to be riding these animals. So some of them were taking turns writing the animals and people who are couples, the husband and wife, couples, basically the wives are writing the animals and the husbands were leading those animals. So between about 1516 people, they had maybe seven or eight animals rides. And they were basically taking turns on these rides. And that's basically how they left. And they snuck out in the middle of the night. When morning time finally came and people looked around and realized that these
people were gone.
Arrange, basically put together a group of people a search party and send them out, go and find them. They looks like they're trying to run away. And they didn't even want to let them run away. You have to understand the violent mindset of these of some of the leadership of courage the people in Makkah, that it wasn't just enough that they wanted to force this element outside of Makkah, but they were chasing them. And they didn't even want to let them live on their own and become free and escaped. But they wanted to drag them back to America and keep them under torture and continue to torture them. So this was how violent these people were. So they sent a search party out. It said
that the immigrants of the people who are immigrating these people who were escaping Mecca, the Muslims, they finally reached a port by the name of
some of the books of Sierra actually mentioned the name I believe it's by the name of Jorge bond, but I'm not sure. So they reached his port regardless. And from there, they were able to in the narration mentions that they had very limited funds because they were sneaking out and most of these people were being held hostage or or in captivity for years and years leading up to this moment. So they had very little money together very little food rations together, and it's at the ad half of the knob. Half of the nada is basically half a gold coin. And a lot of those bets would that would be the equivalent to but that would maybe be you know, they had a couple of 100 bucks. They had a
couple of 100 bucks. That was somewhat of their, you know, escape fund
When they reach the port Finally, they spoke to a man who had a small boat. And they basically said that we need to cross over into eastern Africa.
And here's all we have. And he basically took that as his payment and they were able to rent a boat. And and and accrued to sail them there. And they basically escaped. So by the time the search party reached the the deport, the Muslims had already departed. They had already left and they were gone. And these people read the search party returned back to Morocco with the news that they had already been gone. The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because of the fragile state of the Muslims at that time.
He really didn't have any direct, you know, news or any direct way to receive information as to what was going on with these people.
But the prophet of Allah salatu salam was very curious what exactly transpired what happened with them. So the narration mentions the that the
Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he hears about someone
coming from that direction coming from Abbott senior.
He hears about somebody coming from Abba senior, this was maybe anonymous in person, a trader, a businessman. So he hears about somebody coming from Abba Xenia and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam specifically searched out that person and the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam asked him, he goes, have you heard about some people leaving Mecca and going towards Abba Xenia going towards Habesha? And the man said, Yes, I heard about some people. And he then the prophets a lot isn't specifically asked him He goes, did you know any any good first. So first, he asked him, How, how are they doing? And he goes, as far as I'm concerned, as far as I've heard, that they've reached their into Habesha
safely, and the process and was very grateful for receiving this news. And he asked him specifically, and this shows you that the Prophet of Allah, Allah was a father. He was a he was a family man. The prophets, a lot of Islam specifically says that, were you able to see these people interact with these people and goes, Yeah, actually saw them arrive. And I was able to actually talk to some of them. And he goes, there was a couple who would be the leaders amongst this entire group. And he was basically talking about Arthur I'm gonna find in his own daughter Rukia. And he goes, were you able, maybe were you able to see the leaders of the group? And he goes, Yeah, there was a
couple. They seem to be the leaders. They were kind of, you know, taking care of everybody else. And then the prophets, a lot of them became very excited. And he asked him that Allah he hadn't read at Houma.
Allah, he hadn't read eight of them.
And then this this person tells the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam wrote a tool called the hamdulillah imperata. Who Allah Haman, Minh has he dibaba? Well, who is
the man tells the prophets a lot isn't that the last time I saw them, they were entering into India, that the man the husband had put his wife on top of a a mule, that the wife was riding a mule and the husband was holding the rope of that mule leading it forward. And it was a very slow week animal because of the limited funds that they had. It was a very slow week animal. And the wife was writing the woman was writing the mule and the husband was basically leading the mule. And that's the last time that I saw them. The Prophet of Allah Salaam was very relieved at this news. And he had said, Sahaba, whom Allah Sahiba, whom Allah May Allah subhanaw taala be with them.
May Allah be their companion in their journey, may Allah take care of them, may Allah be with them. And then the prophets Allah said in the earth man, oh, man ha Jo B and E ba De Luca alayhi salam. That man has revived a great tradition of the prophets of the past that are earthman is the first one to migrate, leave his home for the sake of his faith in his eemaan with his family. Since Nutella Hassan did they use the first one to travel and leave his home to for the sake of his eemaan and Islam since luta Elisa, so the prophets Allah gave a compliment to Earth manotick love Manu. And basically this was a virtue of artheon or the Allahu anhu. And then the prophets, a lot of them also
made to offer them you know, one other thing that this also tells us, this also dispels the notion or the idea that somehow these Muslims who chose to leave Mecca and go to Abyssinia were weaker than the Muslims who stayed behind.
There is no credence nor is there any credibility to this line of thinking. That is an incorrect conclusion.
And some of the coverage when they came out
And they see each Medina later on during the lava of Earth man are the Allahu anhu when they laid siege against the city of Medina, and they were, they were trying to assassinate and eventually did assassinating kill, or thumbin, or the Allahu anhu. They were making these types of accusations, oh, Earth man will either be la familia de Bella, they were saying that artheon was a coward. And look, he ran away from MCI and went to India, and he didn't stick it there, stick it through in Mecca and do what needed to be done. And they were trying to say things like this, there is no credence or credibility to that fact. But the prophets, a lot of them actually spoke of the virtue of these
people, he complimented these people.
And the Prophet says is making to offer these people. So there is no credence or credibility to this fact. But nevertheless, we see here that the prophets a lot of the same at the end of the day, being a father is very concerned about his daughter, and what's going on with her and inquires about her well being in her health, and is very relieved and makes dua to find out that she is doing okay, and that may Allah subhanaw taala keep her and her family safe.
So now these dozen or so these 1516 Muslims, they arrived there and Abyssinia, very quietly, low profile. And this was all through the instruction of the prophet SAW some of the promises and told them when you get there, remain very quiet, keep to yourself Mind your own business, find a safe place to live and just kind of do your own thing.
Don't don't disrupt anything.
So they do exactly as the profitsystem instructed them to. And in fact, some of the narrations mentioned that the place that they chose to settle down was not even a major city, a main city, they were living sort of slightly outside of a major city. So that there was a major city nearby to where they you know, maybe some of the men could work or do some business, they could go to buy any supplies or food or things they would require. But they lived a little bit outside of there to not disrupt any type of community harmony that might be there and not become, you know, the point of, you know, curiosity or contention for that particular community. And this again, shows the wisdom of
the Sahaba The love I know, taking their situation under consideration and realizing what was pertinent at that time.
Now we come back to Mecca. So now some but it's a very small number 1516 people, but he were upset enough to send a search party, but once they we weren't able to find them, they come back. And what did they decide to do, they basically decided to put tighter clamps on the Muslims and on the city of Mecca itself.
Basically, now we need to keep track of these people at all times and nobody gets out unless we know who is going and who is coming back. So they set up a type of border patrol. And they basically start you know, you know, keeping track of spying and tracking the Muslims in Mecca. And so now all of this is basically going on. So now this is the political climate in the city of Mecca, and they're keeping tabs on all the Muslims and keeping a track of who comes in and who goes out and things like that
sometime thereafter. And the narration basically mentions that literally, maybe, you know, in the next month or so,
very or excuse me two months from then, in some seminarians actually say that this occurred in the month of Ramadan, in the fifth year, so about two years after these Muslims have left shouldn't be two months after these Muslims have left Mecca,
an incident occurs.
A very powerful, very interesting incident occurs. The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's a month of Ramadan. It's a blessed month, of course fasting and things like that these obligations have not been revealed or sent down. Nevertheless, Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, we talked about this in the earlier sessions of the Sierra shuttle Ramadan and letting Angela feel that that they have extra in the cave of Haydar, according to the majority of the scholars was the month of Ramadan. So there is some significance to this month even at this early juncture of this era.
And so it is a blessed time. And the Prophet of Allah Luddism goes into the huddle as is his normal routine. Remember, he has a protection from authority brainwash him, he goes into the huddle, he stands there, you know, goes and kind of finds himself a nice little corner there in front of the cow, by the way to LA and he prays and he does his own thing and nobody likes it, but they kind of tolerate it. And he just does his own thing.
And while the prophets a lot, he some is praying there,
he begins to recite some Quran.
And for whatever reason, the prophet of Allah salatu salam begins reciting this Quran out loud
And as he starts reciting continues reciting this Koran out loud, initially, some people are irritated and agitated there right? Now he's going too far. He comes here and he does his thing, whatever he does, you know, we put up with it, because we have no choice.
But now he's gonna start making noise and trying to make us listen to it. And he's trying to get agitated. So narration says some people start to come kind of closer,
kind of converging on the profits a lot. He said, Oh, and as soon as they get close enough to where they can hear what he's reading, they stopped dead in their tracks, and the certain listening
and again, through divine revelation, the instruction of Allah, the will of Allah, the prophets, a lot of these him starts to raise his voice and volume.
Till eventually the process of his reciting this out loud.
And everyone who's there in the huddle room
is quiet, stopped sitting, standing wherever they're at. And they're looking at him and they're listening.
And everyone's listening, captivated. Something like this hasn't happened in a very long time.
That's in the process of made a couple of public addresses, like on the mountain of sofa, bring those were very brief, something as extensive as this, where the profits are lovely, some recites, like the majority of a decent sized sutra, a couple of pages of the Koran, and everyone's just quiet to sitting there and listening, fully captivated. First time this is happening. And actually wanted to share some of the ayat that the prophets Allah ism is reciting. Because this is part of the objective or the point that I try to make here in the seat our sessions is that the seat or the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is something that, you know, hasn't been covered, of course,
obviously. And it's something that is narrated and mentioned and told and written about, but a lot of times, it's just
an incident is being reported.
It almost seems more like you're reading a newspaper, or a Wikipedia entry or an encyclopedia, rather than you then us experiencing what actually happened.
And in order to understand, really, and profoundly experience what that must have been, like, it's important that we do interact, and we understand exactly what what what was happening there.
So the prophets, Islamism, and the narrations kind of differ as to what I asked where he was reciting surah, number 53. And we know this month for sure that he the ratio we're listening from is number 19. On
from IE number 19. From sir number 53, sudo to najem.
The star from IE number 19. On they were all listening and the prophets a lot he certainly was reciting for a tumor lateral and then of course, at the fear of this would be very deep and very profound, and that maybe inshallah will be a session for another day. But what I'm going to do here is is basically explain the basic meaning translation if you will, so at least we understand what what the what the processor was reciting what Allah was saying.
What was being understood, at least at some level by these by the fresh for our age, and the latter will have you ever really sat down to think
Have y'all all of you people have MCI? Have you ever sat down to really think about a lot in RZA? Woman at a fairly subtle okra and the idol of mine, not the third one, the other one? These three idols Aladdin, Rosa Almanack, these were the main three idols at operations to worship. I talked about this in the very early early sessions of the CBOE that we add, where I talked about the religious scene in Arabia, how there were different idols that different areas of Arabia used to primarily worship and that they had built their shrines around them. So the three big ones in Mecca were a Latin Ursa and almanacs. So Allah subhanaw taala says, Have you ever sat down to really think
about these three idols that you worship? Allah? Allah will answer and then you go on to also call the angels, the daughters of Allah, but you yourself, you'd like to have sons. So
do you say that you should have sons but God has daughters? Tim gave them a piece of metal and Liza is these are very unique, powerful words.
These are words from the Arabic language but are were only used in like high level poetry.
And they hadn't been used by common people in common conversation. And so the prophets a lot of them were reciting these IOD was just completely captivating that Where's Mohammed getting this from? Well, of course, obviously.
Because this is a law speaking, to get even placement on visa, this in fact is a very, you know, unbalanced, unjust unfair division distribution.
In here in LA smartphones a major move into more about that all of these are nothing but names that you have given to these idols, you and your forefathers gave to these idols manzanilla will be having some fun, God did not reveal any authoritative, conclusive message that these idols should be given these names and should be worshipped enough to be only in lavanda. Most human beings and these people worshipping these idols are only following their assumptions and conjecture will matter who will enforce and they follow their desires, La da da, da, da, da, da, da, and guidance has come to them from their Lord. I'm living in Santa Marta mana. So what can a human being just do whatever he
feels like doing, and live a life that's based off of wishful thinking, I'll do here whatever I want to do, and God will just hook me up there in the hereafter or there isn't a hereafter or he'll give me what I deserve, or what I should what I want. Can a person just live life off of wishful thinking Willy nagging Alfredo to alula remember that to Allah alone belongs the end and the beginning will come in melachim fissa mawashi la Tony shefa to come Shay. And in LA manga the Manga Manga Shatta Wale, da, that how many angels are there in the heavens, that their intercession will not help these people at all, except there unless las panatela allows or wills or approves of these angels

He is the one that gives death and then he is the one who will bring back to life. One now Who am I to haha.

And that he has taken it upon himself that he will recreate this human being in the life of the hereafter in the same form. The human being is here in this world, what and the who.
And he is the one who enriches, blesses the human being. And he's the one who makes the human being, you know, basically is enough for the human being. He is the one that grants fulfillment to the human being. Well I know who are a Bush era, and He is the Lord of the Skies in the star that you look up and you gaze at and that you admire what and who I like either a Lula and listen to Arabs, you know that there was a nation that lived here amongst you, you're aware of their ruins, that there was a great powerful nation that lived here before you He is the one that destroyed them before you with some Buddha, and also the people of Mahmud, who lived in these mountains whose ruins

Are you surprised? Are you shocked to hear all of this? What other Hakuna Matata Bakun and you point in you laugh at the person reciting this to you and it does not bring you to tears.
To hear this first Judo war anthem, Sammy Dune, and that you go around proudly arrogantly living your lives. First you do need to humble yourself before Allah and worship only Allah.
So this is how the sutra concluded as soon as the profit of a loss allottee Some said the words you know, so you can imagine everybody on the edge of their seats listening, and especially, it's almost as if Allah is directly and Allah is speaking directly to human God, to mankind to human beings through the book of Allah. But these people felt like they were being spoken to directly at that moment by alone.
For ba Allah Arabic Etta Tamara Havana, zero mana non Muslim hula as important as Eva Lisa hamdu Lillahi kashia
Raja Boone Are you shocked by this? Water Hakuna Matata, Bakula anthem Sammy dawn.
You laugh and you don't cry and you go around being arrogant for us to do like you
fall into servitude and worship your Lord and the prophets. Allah immediately went into Setsuna he fell into such w for our last pinata.
And it said that everybody was on the edge of their seats, listening,
just dumbfounded, dumbstruck
and when they saw the profitsystem fall into such detail,
they just instinctively following after him, everybody that was during the huddle.
The vast overwhelming majority of whom were did not believe in Allah
had not accepted Islam. They all fell into such that as well.
The narration even say that Abu Jihad was there all these people they fell into such a there's an interesting Walid bin Molina who had had that exchange with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam arrogance, it actually says that even he didn't want to fall into such dark because he was kind of like no, I'm not going to do with Muhammad does. But even he felt compelled to do something. So today, he just kind of reached over on the side picked up a little bit of dirt and put it on his forehead.
It just had this impact on all these people. They felt like we better do this now before something happens.
What an addenda was removed from ABA, we better do something now before something happens. And this occurred.
Now the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam comes back up from sadza. Everybody else comes back up from said Zen. It's just this awkward silence as you can imagine.
Everyone's just kind of like
and the profits or some kind of let them sit in it for a little while.
Sit and soak it in, see what happens. You listen to the column of Allah, look what it did to you. If this ain't your federal talking them, what is it?
And people just kind of dispersed from there somewhat confused. abou john and Waleed and Molly bin Molina and Minshew rate and abou lab. And all these people kind of gathered together in the war room, saying we got to get that PR machine turning.
We got to really suppress we got to have a little press conference released a statement. We got to get to work here, man. A couple of 100 people in Mecca all the leadership of the footage basically just did subdued. And listen to like a bunch of put on and when did sujood with Mohammed?
Like, what are we going to do?
And of course, obviously, how creative they decided to say our Mohammed was reciting all that sorcery and magical incantation and all that stuff. And it basically says that he possessed everyone.
And basically made everyone fall into servitude. He like physically took over everybody's body and made them do sudo. So don't worry, it was a moment of insanity for all of us. All right, we're excused. It wasn't real. And that's basically what happened.
But that had a profound impact in on the people of Africa. And you see that from here, some very interesting
events begin to occur from here.
But there was
Part Part of the reason this, of course, happened at this time, two months after the migration to have the senior, but it had an impact on the migration to Abyssinia as well.
Now, something like this doesn't go unnoticed. Something like this doesn't fly under the radar. People know people hear people see people talk
and the word started to spread. Did you hear what happened? A couple of 100 people. All the leaders of grace, basically just accepted Mohammed's religion.
And the word the rumors started to spread outside of Macau, eventually to the point where the rumors reached the Muslims in Abyssinia. small little band of Muslims living quietly undercover they're finally getting away from torture for a couple of months now went through a life threatening journey to read share, and the news reaches.
courageous accepted Islam.
So they say, time to go back home.
And narration say that a few of them stayed because maybe those were unable to travel at that time. But the majority of them, the majority of them out of the 1516, at least about 12 of them. 13 of them, most of them, basically make that entire journey all the way back to Mecca.
And they reach a little bit outside of America, and they stopped there.
And they meet some people from Africa. And they talked to them and they're like, Man, you guys, you guys ever want to run away isn't, aren't you?
And they were like, yeah, you know, we laughed, because you know, we were undergoing all this torture. And we heard my salon everybody's Muslim. So we came back. He's like, What are you talking about?
What are you talking about? Well, Quraysh, all of them accepted Islam, didn't they? Everyone became Muslim, right? And he's like, No, none of that happened. So they're like, well, then what did happen? Because we heard something. And
they're basically informed that what did transpire? What did happen? Was this is this and they tell them the story.
And those Muslims are heartbroken.
Like, what do we do?
Do we go into Makkah, if it's the same, or do we leave?
So it said that a few of them came back into Mecca. But most of them, about 10 of them decided to go back to Abbot Sr. and a few of them a couple of them came back into Morocco, and decided to just stay in Mecca and toughen it up. And when the prophets a lot, he saw them, he asked them, Well, why did you come back? And they tell him exactly, we heard these rumors.
Nevertheless, what happened because of this,
is that now you had a couple of people who interprets, and he talks about the journey that look, it was a little difficult, but it is doable.
Even women were able to undertake this journey, it is doable.
At the same time, it's completely safe over there, you got nothing to worry about over there. You live there quietly, You mind your own business, Nobody messes with you. Nobody asks you what you're doing. Everybody just kind of minds your own business.
that, you know the torture and mcca continues to intensify day by day, now this starts to become a very serious option. Because now we actually have some direct feedback, some news, some reviews. So now that starts to become an option.
And in the next coming weeks, dozens of dozens of Muslims began to leave my cut in waves.
And now they have to leave in small little groups of four and five people because remember, I told you, they put the clamps down on my car. So now they have to slip out a couple of people at a time, and they start leaving in waves. And over the next few weeks, basically about, you know, another 60 to 70 people leave my car to go to Abyssinia another I would say actually more than that about 80 some odd people leave Makkah to go to Abyssinia to the point where Finally, the number of people Muslims in Abyssinia reaches about 100 people.
So it's a small little community of about 100 people, there are about 80 to 83 men, Muslim men, and about 16 women. And again, 216 women are wives of about 16 men, and the rest are all younger men, younger people, you know people who are young Muslim men who are not married yet, like most men are made and people like this, who were leaving because they were being tortured slaves was trying to escape because they were undergoing torture, and about 100 Muslims began to reside there in Amazonia. And this basically leads up to a major event at that time. Towards the end of the fifth year of the new boo and profit are leading up into the sixth year where once there are about 100
people living in Amazonia. That operation basically sees looks around at MCI and says MCI is emptying out from Muslims. And that has a very interesting effect in Macau, which we'll talk about next in the coming week inshallah. But what that also does is that also concerns them that they're just going and setting up camp somewhere else.
We can let that let them do that.
We can't let that happen. So then they decide to do something about it. We got a mess up the party that's going on over there. We got a crisis little Muslim party that's going on in Abyssinia. We got to go and crush that party and what they exactly decided to do and what transpires in Athens inshallah we'll talk about in the next coming session. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that was said and heard. A couple of I should clarify, a couple of interesting lessons that we do learn from this session are first and foremost, we see the wisdom of the prophets a lot he said them, we see how well informed and well researched he was that is a
responsibility of leadership. Number two, we see that the prophets who loves him is willing to make a personal sacrifice, lose some of his numbers in order for the safety of his followers, self sacrifices and other quality of leadership that the prophets allows them exemplified. We also see from this particular narration about how the profits are loving him as a father at the end of the day. And he's worried and he's asking and trying to find out some news about his daughter to make sure that he's safe, that being a religious leader did not preclude him from being a father.
And that him being a father and inquiring about his daughter doesn't make him any less of a prophet or a messenger or a leader, but it makes him even more so of one, because a quality leader will be a quality family man will be a quality husband and a quality father. And we see that quality here in the Prophet of Allah la de Sena. Lastly, and finally, we see an observing the story, the intelligence of even the Muslim community, and the instruction that the prophecy of them gave them, where he told him not to show up there and start making a lot of noise. But understand who you are, why you're there and exactly where you're at. That doesn't mean you don't do Dawa. And by the way,
in the next session, I'm going to talk about I even the minority Muslims that obviously Nia did do Dawa. And they were converting people and eventually brought people to the profits a lot easier to take the Shahada and learn from the profits, a lot of them. But at the same time, Tao is done with wisdom and hikma understanding your circumstances, you are an oppressed minority, escaping torture, trying to find safe passage in somebody else's land in somebody else's place. understand who you are, don't show up acting like you own the place. Don't show up acting like you own the place, but be a little respectful and intelligent and wise about how you go about conducting yourself. And we
find that here in this particular instance, as well. And lastly, and finally, we see the power of the book of Allah the power of the Quran,
when it was recited and would even bring the staunchest of the disbelievers to fall into sudo will affect us and have on us does it have that same impact and effect on us?
Because if it does, Alhamdulillah but you know what, though, not a really huge accomplishment.
Like oh man, the Quran it just has such an impact and effect on me. It's like, that's good. But Congratulations, you have the same reaction to the Quran. dimucci nice to you react to the for all like Abu gehalten like it's not a huge accomplishment. I'm just trying to show you where how low the bar is for us right now. That if I just sit there and think about the Quran and feel affected by the Quran, I feel like oh man Subhan Allah.
No, I mean, mushy Koon used to be affected by the Quran.
But we have to really contemplate the real tragedy would be if it doesn't even have that effect on us. If it doesn't have that effect on us that comes from one primary reason. That's probably because we don't understand it. We don't comprehend it, we don't grasp it, we don't reflect and think on it. And that just means we need to invest more time and energy into actually reading the Quran, read the translation of the Quran, study the meaning of the Quran,
sit with scholars when they give to us imams here has it the sheer class here on a weekly basis. So it's a question I have to ask myself to actually come and sit and listen.
Do I take out time somebody else is doing all that work coming here and explaining the meaning of that put onto me. If I can grab up for animals, have fun, sit down and open it up and just follow along as a scholar kind of spoon feeds me the meaning of the Quran for 30 minutes in a week. What really am I doing?
And who else do I have to blame but myself? So it's a real question we have to ask ourselves, and we have to reevaluate our relationship with operon. And lastly, and finally, something that comes from this the passage, sort of to najem sort of number 53 that we taught that we recited here is that
this surah it ends with this call but from Allah subhanaw taala first sudo lillahi Rabbil to do sudo to Allah alone and worship Allah alone, that a call it basically makes a call for us to prostrate to do such w for Allah. And therefore, this ayah this end of the surah is one of those places in the Quran, where we are asked to basically perform such that whenever we read or hear or listen to this particular
If we are asked to do such w for las panatela. That's why when the Imam recites in in his prayer, he says Allahu Akbar and immediately goes into sadza, if we're reciting the Quran, we should do such as well. And so,
kind of First and foremost, we learned that from your secondly, for all of us who are here, either reciting this IR or listening to this, I inshallah, right here at the conclusion of this class inshallah, we should make sure that we do do a sense that we perform at least one sujood before we leave, I know I recited the verse multiple times, but the fit of it is that if that verses recited multiple times, or listen to multiple times in one sitting in one place at one time, only one such Danny be done, only one such as to be done in it suffices for that is firstly, because this has been done for educational purposes, so only one such as to be performed. So please do try to make a set
of them before you leave the fit of the subject to tilava is very simple, very easy, you don't have to stand up. You don't have to have any type of prerequisite, basically sit in this Shahid position, and you say Allahu Akbar, you do a such that like normal, any other such does Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, a minimum of three times or more than that in an odd number of times, and then you say, Allahu Akbar, and you come back up, and then you don't have to say Salaam or anything like that. You just perform one individual sets on its own by itself and it will basically fulfill the obligation that is upon us because of this ayah and his verse, May Allah give us all the ability to
practice everything that was 700
do you have to have will do for that there's a difference of opinion amongst the scholars whether we'll do is required or not, but the majority of scholars say that yes, we'll do should be acquired will do should be performed for this or if you are and we'll do that fine. But if you do not have will do then quickly make will do and then perform that sort of stuff, just from a lot slower.
