00:00:29--> 00:00:31

Salaam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu.

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

Sorry about the little bit of delay a couple of minutes they were trying to.

00:00:37--> 00:01:21

There's some folks who watch the class online, and they were trying to make sure that it was broadcasting and they were just trying to set that all up. But you've been Sharla. In the previous session, we talked about the migration of the Sahaba, or the loved one whom, to Abyssinia, Eastern Africa, have Ayesha in Arabic. And we talked about the two waves of migration. What we talked about initially was when did migration actually occur? So we discussed this was something that was occurring during the fourth year of the prophethood of the Buddha. And we talked about how when the opposition to Islam and the Muslims in Makkah, reached a certain peak and reached a certain point,

00:01:21--> 00:01:59

that at that point in time, the prophet of Allah sloty, some personally had a certain level of protection provided by Abu Talib, his uncle in the family relations, so he had certain family connections that kept him protected. There were a few other individuals who weren't completely protected like Abu Bakar, the log on you and a few others. Even they were not completely protected. Even Abu Bakar, a loved one who was permanently injured and was beaten into a coma. But nevertheless, generally speaking, day to day, they did not live under constant oppression. They weren't they didn't have to go into hiding began living underground. Whereas a lot of the Sahaba

00:01:59--> 00:02:37

radi Allahu Allah, may Allah be pleased with them, began living literally underground, they they they were under house arrest, they could not leave their homes because the second day would be spotted in the streets, they would be grabbed and they would be tortured, near death or even to death. And so at this point in time, there are over 100 Muslims in Makkah, but unfortunately the majority of them are living under this constant grip of oppression and violence. At that point in time, the prophet of Allah salami, Sam had been kind of keeping an open eye and an open mind to other areas outside of Mecca to see if there was any place that would be hospitable, that would be

00:02:37--> 00:03:20

welcoming and protecting towards this small little group of Muslims, where they could go in they could seek refuge in the profits. A lot of them became aware of Habesha at the senior Eastern Africa, what we today would call Ethiopia and the Prophet of Allah ceylonese him when he became aware of this place. He even spoke about this in some narrations, he said for him now who Naka Malecon Malecon excuse me for no naka Malecon, the prophet of Allah zolani Some said because there is a king over there who offers protection who is very fair, he is very just law of limbo I hadn't. He does not oppress anyone he does not do wrong to anyone. He welcomes minorities, you welcomes all

00:03:20--> 00:04:01

types of people from all walks of life and grants and protection. So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam sent a group of Sahaba radi Allahu anhu. The leaders of this group were none other than earthman been a fan of the Allahu anhu and his wife rupiah been to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the second daughter of the Prophet salallahu Salam whose name was rupiah. So the daughter and the son in law of the prophets, a lot of them were at the head of this group. And it said that there were a total of 15 or 16 people different narrations who went in this first group of immigrants, people leaving McCarthy to go and seek sanctuary refuge in Habesha in eastern Africa.

00:04:02--> 00:04:35

And we talked a little bit about how the prophets a lot of them found out that they were okay they were safe and sound. And they arrived in Mecca, safe and sound and the the prophets, a lot of them instructed them to keep a very low profile, live a little bit outside of a major city not attract a lot of attention to yourselves and just kind of Mind your own business, and SubhanAllah. The people of this region were also welcoming and open minded enough to where they obviously realize these are outsiders, these are foreigners. There's something different about these people, but they didn't make a big deal out of these people arriving either and they kind of let them be and do their own

00:04:35--> 00:04:42

thing. Well, we talked about literally two months after these Muslims had arrived in Amazonia.

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

A major incident during the month of Ramadan took place in Mecca. And we talked about this at length last time where the prophets a lot of them recited sort of to najem the entire sutra within or the majority of this would excuse me,

00:05:00--> 00:05:27

In the bottom and at the conclusion of the suit office, you do Lila Abu so fall down before Allah subhanaw taala alone in worship Him alone, and how the prophets a lot even when he went into servitude naturally, because of listening to the message of the Sudan being so affected and impacted by all the people who are present there also fell into sujood before Allah, and everyone fell into frustration and sujood. It said in some nations that even people like Abu Jamal fell into sujood.

00:05:30--> 00:05:30

Robbie,

00:05:31--> 00:05:32

Robbie,

00:05:33--> 00:06:13

Robbie, I choose me or when he'd been laid off, one of the two I forget exactly who I mentioned this in the previous session, who had confronted the prophets a lot. He said it was too arrogant to go into servitude. So the narration says he picked up a little bit of dirt and place it on his forehead. But the gist of it is that everyone was deeply affected by this. And later on a couple of days later, they had kind of a press release or a press conference to kind of put everyone's concerns to rest and saying that, oh, this was Mohammed's magic and he affected everyone. But don't worry, everything's okay. Everyone's back to normal. We're all okay. But the news of this by the

00:06:13--> 00:06:54

time they reached have a shot because you know how rumors work and news works. By the time it exchanges, you know, four or five hands, it's become completely different. So by the time the news reached the Muslims inhabited the news was all of today's all of MK as accepted Islam. And so the majority of these people who had gone to Abyssinia, the majority of them came back to Mecca. And this was during the month of chawan. So this is probably probably about three months, four months after they had made the trip out to abbacy. Nia, four months later, they're coming back home to America. It said when they were probably about a few miles, literally half a day's journey outside

00:06:54--> 00:07:35

of Mecca, and they camped out there. They met some people from there. And when they talk to them, when they spoke to them, they found out that the news you've received is false. The majority of MCI is still against the song, and in fact, their opposition to the Muslims has increased has intensified. So it said that about four people came back into Makkah, the majority of them head back to Abyssinia. But these four people who came back to Makkah earthman, bin marone, and a few others who are mentioned by name, when they came back into MCI now they had first hand information of life and abbacy Neil was like, and when they ended up realizing was life in Abyssinia was very safe. It

00:07:35--> 00:08:16

was very welcoming. It was comfortable. So it said but at the same time. If you remember when we talked about the first migration, that the Moroccans did try to follow them they found out a little bit late they tried to get after them and catch them. But by the time they reach support the Muslims that already departed. So with the McKinsey decided to do is they decided to employ Border Patrol. And now they were keeping an eye on the Muslims and an eye on the borders of Mecca, making sure none of these, you know, heretics were able to slip out of Mecca, that we got to keep these people here because we got a we got to beat this nonsense out of them. So now the Muslims realize that they

00:08:16--> 00:08:48

would have to leave macaque quietly secretly, a couple of people at a time, a few people at a time. And they began to slip out in small small groups like this. until it is said that a total of almost 100 people. The narrations tell us that there were about 83 men and about 16 women. So just a close to about and if you factor in the four or five people that were still there, and I've seen you so now well over 100 people basically had left Macau Muslims had left Makkah and gone and settled in Abu Samia.

00:08:49--> 00:09:30

By this time now when who kind of took a look around Mecca and realized the majority of the Muslims were gone. There was literally a dozen or so a couple of dozen Muslims remaining. And these were most of the high profile people like the prophets allottee sound like Abu Bakr, radi, Allahu anhu, and so on so forth, that most of the only a dozen or so Muslims remain. And those are also the high profile people that we really can't touch anyways. So now what do we do most of them have gotten away. So one of the things I didn't comment about was, this was part of the strategy of the prophets a lot he sent them. You have to understand the wisdom of the prophets, a lot of them and we'll talk

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

about the wisdom in regards to this migration type of scene. He had many different levels. We'll talk about this in just a little bit some more, but at least on the at the outset, you have to understand the wisdom of the prophets a lot. He said them, we A lot of times, you know, they're they're always different schools of thought in regards to this, but we have to understand one thing. A lot of times what we feel is, especially we live in the age of social media, we live in the age of entertaining

00:10:00--> 00:10:53

menten marketing and an advertisement in a media and social media hype, high profile, loud noises is a really popular strategy. It doesn't matter how small you are, it doesn't matter how much of a beginning stage you are in, it doesn't matter what a minority you may be how you might be a pilot program or a pilot project or our pilot product or whatever the case may be. What is a very popular strategy these days is make a lot of noise, make a lot of noise, high profile, high impact, high energy, lots of noise as a way to go. And unfortunately, that affects us a lot of times as religious and social entities. As communities as organizations as institutions, we end up succumbing to the

00:10:53--> 00:11:35

same exact strategy when we don't understand that might be a useful strategy for you know, for for commercialization, that might be a useful strategy for marketing or retailing, or selling or whatever the case may be. For a monetary Lee financially driven project, or product, that might be a great strategy. But that's not always the greatest strategy, philosophically, spiritually, religiously, or even for community. It's not always the greatest strategy. And we what we end up realizing or understanding and these experiences have been had by a lot of people we end up sometimes causing more harm than we do good. We are oftentimes become the victim of our own

00:11:35--> 00:12:16

strategies. A lot of times because of this, when we look at the prophets, a lot of the Muslims in Mecca are a minority, and they are up on the truth. See, that's the other thing or if you're if you're on the truth, that what's the problem, be loud and be proud? Because you have the truth? Well, within the prophets, a lot of the some of the truth, then the Muslims in Makkah have truth? Of course they did. But there are a lot of other factors to take into consideration. You have to understand that especially as a minority as a fledgling community, these 100 people you the prophets, a lot of them had, these are the foundation. These are the founders of the community. This

00:12:16--> 00:12:25

is the origins of this community, the oma we even look at the time of the Battle of butter, What the What was it? What are the profits a lot easier made?

00:12:26--> 00:12:38

Oh, a life you allow these people to perish and you will not be worshipped on the earth? This is it. Yeah, Allah, these 300 people that go out here and stand in the battlefield tomorrow morning. This is it. This is the oma.

00:12:40--> 00:13:06

So understanding that you might be small. And so it makes a lot of sense, you make a lot of noise. That's what any new shoe company would do. They make a lot of noise. You try to go onto Facebook, and try to get 500,000 people to like your page. But we have to understand we're not trying to sell shoes over here. We're trying to build a community. We're trying to, you know, fat, found a community built the foundations of the oma.

00:13:08--> 00:13:29

And so the prophets amongst him understood that. And he realized that making a lot of noise and being high profile and marching my people 100 or so of them, in a major city in Arabia, marching them out into the streets to be massacred, to be slaughtered. Why, because we stand for the truth is a very unintelligent thing to do. And it is a cruel thing to do.

00:13:31--> 00:13:52

Because what you do is you sacrifice these people, you throw them to the wolves, you feed them, you literally sift, serve them up on a silver platter, and you feed them to the mob. And on top of that, what you do is you ruin the opportunity of the maybe 1000s 10s of 1000s that are out there who would be open,

00:13:54--> 00:14:36

who might be amicable, who might be open to the message, you you sabotage their opportunity to be able to interact with the message. slowly, gradually and slowly continue to come to the faith, and come to a man and come to Islam. So this is a very unintelligent thing to do. So we see that the prophets, a lot of them realizes what is most pertinent and important right now is the survival of this minority is the continued spiritual development of these people, building the spiritual fortitude, that for the day, that really when these people do have to actually stand out there on the front lines, and deal with some adversity and hardship that they're ready to deal with it.

00:14:37--> 00:14:54

They're ready to deal with it, the development of the amount of the people, the solidification of the faith and the belief of these people with the first concern of the prophets, a lot of them. You know, there's a very interesting narration I found. This is mentioned in some of the books about the lives of the Sahaba or the loved one whom

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

I forget exactly what battle it's in regards to but it's it's in regard

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

to some of the battles that were taking place on the, you know, outer limits of the Muslim region at that time, when the Muslims were warring they were, they were having some of the battles with the Persians, that the ranks of the Muslims at that time does during the life of the Allahu anhu. The ranks of the Muslims of that time were very interesting, because they were very diverse, they were mixed, there were many Sahaba. But there were also many, Tabby own. These are people who had accepted Islam later who and who had come into contact with Sahaba. So even for us to be our own, our people have very high caliber, but obviously comparatively to the Sahaba. These people were

00:15:43--> 00:16:23

newer, younger, less experienced, less knowledgeable, less refined in terms of their eemaan. So one generation says that when they were standing out there at the front of the frontlines of the battle, on the battlefield, that it was the early part of the day, it was like 10:11am, when the sun starts to reach its peak, and the sun is bearing down. And the Muslims were standing there in their lines, how the Muslim many times were, some of them ill equipped, some of them not, you know, fully armored or covered with armor and things like that, out there, whatever condition that they had. And they looked across the battlefield and they saw these soldiers, especially in the front lines, who are

00:16:23--> 00:16:51

completely armed from head to toe, completely armored and shielded. And when you have armor and shields and swords out there in the sun is up, I glaring down, it shines literally off the armor and the swords and the shield. So this one, this one Muslim who must have been a tablet and another Sahabi he looks over there and he says, law in law he didn't. He says, I don't see anything but still.

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

I look over and all I see is steel. I don't even see any human beings it just like it's just like an army made out of like steel. That's all I see.

00:17:02--> 00:17:21

And he was standing next to a Sahabi so he just kind of says that out loud. You know, when you're in one of those moments, and you look and you're like, oh snap. So you just kind of said that out loud. And we're standing next to a Sahabi radi Allahu anhu and the Sahabi rhodiola Anna looks over at him and he goes la la caja de de la de Ville Islam.

00:17:22--> 00:17:44

La la caja de de da de Ville Islam. He goes, You sound like you recently accepted Islam. You don't sound like you have too much experience, which is a very interesting remark to make. I mean, instead of acknowledging goes, Yeah, they are pretty, they're armed to the teeth. Or instead of even motivating him saying like, Oh, don't worry about it. He just the instant observation was he goes, You seem kind of new to this.

00:17:45--> 00:17:52

He goes, we've been through this plus even worse than this before. We stood by the side of the profits, a lot of him in the Battle of brother.

00:17:53--> 00:17:58

We were standing by standing in front of the profits a lot of time on the Battle of boyhood, when we had been sandwiched.

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

We stood by the side of the prophets a lot. He said when we dug trenches around Medina, and tide stones to our stomachs. We were standing by the side of the prophets, a lot of them and 1000s of Muslims fled the battlefield in the Battle of her name, and a few 100 remained to basically achieve victory for the Muslims. We sat behind the prophets a lot he said on media Stefan on the day we conquered MCC.

00:18:24--> 00:19:02

We were there. So you sound like you're kind of new to this situation, but it's okay. Let me explain to you how this works young and, and so it shows you the wisdom of the prophets a lot. He said he wasn't concerned about making noise. He wasn't concerned about you know, some public display of whatever the prophets allies who understood this. These are very difficult circumstances, very trying situations right now, the preservation and the continued spiritual development of these believers is more important and more pertinent. So he himself takes 90% of his own community, his congregation and exports them.

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

He exports them outside of out of Mecca, and sends them to a nice, safe, secure place, tells him to live there in anonymity and continue to pray and read the Quran and develop yourself spiritually so that you are strong enough for the day that I truly need you to stand by my side.

00:19:21--> 00:19:39

I mean, there's a day's gonna come where I'm going to call on you. And I'm going to need you on that day. So this is a very interesting strategy by the prophets, a lot of them also realizing the prophets a lot of someone had a very interesting philosophy that he employed throughout his lifetime. And that was to protect yourself from the fitna of evil people.

00:19:41--> 00:19:56

mineralogy nuttiness like pseudo pseudo tannaz talks about pull out a bit of Venus malignancy like in asmin Shari Lewis Rasul, Allah the US vi sudo renacimiento genetti wanna share penal NC well Jin,

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

the Quran talks about it. Look, there are evil entities that are

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

out there. There's a certain amount of evil that lives within us. Well, not everyone I've seen in America. There's the evil of the shouting. The jinn shape on earth to be like mina shaytani, r Rajim minha Masatoshi

00:20:14--> 00:20:54

Robbie Rooney, right? So there's the evil of the shape on that we also take refuge with Allah from, but then there's also an evil that Allah has created in place within people. That oftentimes also becomes a test and a trial and a fitna for us. And it's very important part of intelligence, part of the prophetic wisdom. And the prophetic blueprint is to also protect yourself from the evil of people. And the profits allows him constantly employed this strategy in this philosophy. There's a famous narration about the day the in this is Medina, the Medina and era. So this is an incident from the later muddiman period, where now the Muslims and Islam and Medina and the prophets, a lot

00:20:54--> 00:21:26

of them are well established. He got nothing to worry about one but because of one person, but this one person is approaching the profits, a lot of some seizes sees him coming from a distance, his wife I shadow, the loved one is sitting with him. So they're kind of sitting at the entrance of the quarters, the home and he's just kind of sitting there just kind of enjoying the day with his wife, and he sees this man approaching and he tells his wife, because you have to be protective of your family. He tells his wife, meaning it Chateau de la Marina, Go inside.

00:21:28--> 00:22:10

Go inside. Because he says that a shovel upon me, because that is the worst man of his people. He's a known troublemaker, that's a problem. That's trouble walking towards us right now. So I need you to go inside. So you got to look out for your own people you got to look out for your family. So I shall not be alone I'm however, the the observant, you know, alert students. She goes inside the curtain but she sits right behind the curtain so she can listen in here and learn. And may Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with her and May Allah subhanaw taala reward her and bless her if it was not for her constant observation of the prophets. A lot of them we wouldn't even know this

00:22:10--> 00:22:43

instruction we wouldn't even know this prophetic wisdom and guidance. So she's sitting in on the inside she relates this incident she's sitting and listening and she says when the man came the prophets a lot he said um, you know, welcomed him asked him to have a seat. Ask them you know, who he you know, how he was doing? How are things? How was your trip? How was your journey and he's good, good, good. And he kind of says, You know, I just wanted to come by and see how things were going kind of take a look around Medina and see how you were doing and how everything's going the process of them says, you know, everything's good hamdulillah no complaints everything's good.

00:22:44--> 00:23:21

Basically, you know how we just a very basic conversation almost what we call exchanging pleasantries or formalities, nothing too in depth, nothing too detailed, just exchanging pleasantries and formality, he sees a few pleasantries and formalities with him. And after that, the prophets of legend basically just issues himself and goes, Alright, thank you very much for coming by. I have to go take care of a few things. But I appreciate you swinging by, Have a nice trip back home, and just kind of moved on. I shot out the alarm on her now of course being the student asks the prophets a lot SLM. What was that?

00:23:22--> 00:23:50

What was that? You specifically told me to go inside because you said he's a troublemaker is problematic. And then after that, you basically just exchanged you know, pleasantries with him and just kind of very mundane basic conversation, and then you just kind of excuse yourself and tell him to go on his way. And the profits a lot. He's upset. I was protecting me in my people from his evil in his harm. I didn't confront him. I didn't call him out. I didn't aggravate him.

00:23:51--> 00:23:57

I didn't poke the bear. Because there's no hate in poking a bear.

00:23:58--> 00:24:11

you poke a bear and you get eaten. That's what happens is very common sense. You see a big scary dog sitting there. You don't you don't throw a rock at it. All right, because you come after you.

00:24:12--> 00:24:19

What you do is you pretend like you don't see the dog, you don't make eye contact and you just keep walking. That's what you do. That's intelligence.

00:24:20--> 00:24:29

And the prophets, Allah taught us this intelligence. And what the prophets allowed him did was he realized MCO was aggravated.

00:24:30--> 00:24:59

You don't just like if you have like an irritation. What's the worst thing you can do? If you have like a wound or some type of skin irritation? What's the worst thing you can do? mess with it? That's the first thing they tell you to do. Don't touch it. Don't poke at it. don't scratch it. Don't peel it. Don't lick it. Don't sniff it. Leave it alone. Leave it be just don't touch. That's the best thing you can do. The prophets a lot of them realize that moko was like a was was irritated. It was agitated it was on fire.

00:25:01--> 00:25:10

And the more of them that there were, the more visible they were becoming, the more prominent they were becoming. It was agitating it was basically poking at that rash.

00:25:12--> 00:25:31

It was poking at that rash it was poking that wound. And that was not going to lead to anything good or productive. So the prophets Allah is a very interestingly along with looking out for his own people by removing the vast over 190 percent of the Muslims by removing them from Mecca the prophets a lot of them immediately calmed the inflammation in Mecca.

00:25:33--> 00:25:36

The agitation the irritation Mecca, came down a couple of notches

00:25:38--> 00:25:53

so that the work could continue. Because what's the objective is the objective to rub it in somebody's face. If our goal and our our goal and our objective is to just stand up in somebody's face, put your finger in somebody's face and say, haha,

00:25:54--> 00:26:10

what now? Come at me, what can you do? What are you going to do about it? If that is the goal and the objective, then that's fine, then everybody should have stayed in Mecca, and made a lot of noise and poked their fingers in people's faces and gone around and acted like a bunch of jerks, then that would have been fine.

00:26:12--> 00:26:17

But if the goal in the objective was guidance for all of mankind,

00:26:18--> 00:26:20

guidance for all of mankind,

00:26:21--> 00:26:27

who dwell in us, as the Quran is Rahmatullah and Ameen as a prophet sallallahu Sallam was,

00:26:29--> 00:26:30

then there was no hate in that,

00:26:31--> 00:26:47

creating an agitated situation, there was no blessing in that. And that's exactly what the prophet sallahu son did. He brought the tension down in Makkah a couple of notches, and then continued to work, and continue to preach to people and teach people and propagate to people.

00:26:48--> 00:27:13

And the number of Muslims and there's a very profound wisdom in this, which I'll explain, but a couple of the highest profile conversions to Islam that occurred in Makkah, not very surprisingly, not ironically, because nothing is ironic or surprising or coincidental. Everything is by the will and the decree of Allah. And everything has the wisdom, the prophetic wisdom embedded into it.

00:27:14--> 00:27:22

That very appropriately, two of the most high profile conversions to Islam occurred immediately

00:27:24--> 00:27:25

after the migration to Sr.

00:27:27--> 00:27:46

After 90% of the Muslims had been exported out of Mecca, and the tension had calmed back down a little bit in Mecca, you had a couple of the most high profile conversions to Islam that occurred in the Moroccan era that led to the eventual, you know, prevalence of the Muslims,

00:27:47--> 00:28:01

and led to a lot of confidence and strength in public, you know, standing for the Muslims and public appearance for the Muslims. And so this was part of the strategy of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what I wanted to dedicate today's session two.

00:28:02--> 00:28:40

And this is the you know, I understand, you know, instead of just knocking through, you know, kind of plowing through one incident after another, our primary objective here in DeSoto Sessions is to learn a lesson. And so a lot of times, we'll have to also similarly learn a lesson, there are times making noise, or being just making noise for the sake of noise has no hate. If we have a mission, a message or an objective or a mission, that's fine. There's nothing wrong with publicizing that and raising awareness about that, but making noise for the sake of making noise has no fade in it, has no blessing in it, and has to be driven by the intention has to be driven by the mission, the

00:28:40--> 00:28:55

objective and the goal. And that is guidance and good for all of mankind. That's our mission. That's our objective. That's our vision. And that has to drive whatever it is that we do. We can't get caught up in the commercialization that we see around us. Because there's no good there's no hate in that.

00:28:57--> 00:29:13

And that's something that we have to learn a lesson from from this study of the zero. So the thing that I wanted to talk about primarily today is once the McKinsey looked around Mecca, and they saw the horatian looked at leadership of potential Taran mark and he realized 90% of these these troublemakers are gone.

00:29:14--> 00:29:25

Where they all go, Well, apparently, through their intelligence and their inside sources. They find out Well, they've all gone and set up camping Abyssinia

00:29:27--> 00:29:51

in eastern Africa, and Habesha in Ethiopia. So they said, Well, we can't have that. We can't have them doing that. We can't let these people get off like that. We can let them just get away and be free. And then they're going to set up there and God knows they're going to build some type of Army 1000s of strong over there and they're going to march back to Makkah, and then come back at us. We can't be dealing with this. We got to go after them.

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

Well, how are we going to do that? You realize we're not in charge over there. They have a kingdom they have a king they have a government

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

Have a monarchy, they have their own situation there. Well, it's okay. We just got to play our play this right, we got to play our hand properly. So what are we going to do? So they recruited a couple of people for this, the first person they recruited was us. radi Allahu anhu. I saved the alarm. I know because later on you would accept Islam and become a great Sahabi of the prophets. A lot of him eventually be the person who brought Islam to missile to Egypt. He's called fatsia missile. So I'm going to I'm going to ask for the love and who was the first person who was not Muslim at the time? So I'm going to ask was the first person who was recruited? Why was he recruited? I've been asked

00:30:40--> 00:31:15

was one of the most well traveled of the operation of Americans. It is said about him that he had literally stood in the court of all the major kings of the world at that time. So he had been to Rome he had been to Persia, he had been to Africa, he had been to Egypt number focus, the king of missile, he had stood in the court of all of these kings. And so he was a well traveled very cultured, very sophisticated, knowledgeable person, politically savvy. So they they said we need to recruit him and they recruited him. The second person they recruited was a matter who was the son of what he'd been leader.

00:31:16--> 00:31:58

So we're leaving in Molina, one of the key opponents to the message of the prophets, a lot of some very arrogant against the prophets a lot. He said on his center, a motto was a second person was recruited, why was he recruited, he was also said to be very intelligent, very likeable. He kind of had like, he would basically be somebody who would hire to be like a public spokesperson. It said he was very young, very handsome, very likable, very well spoken. A little arrogant. At the same time, obviously use the son of a very powerful man came from a very powerful family, good dashing young looking guy, very well spoken. So he was a lot of times put out there as the public spokesperson,

00:31:58--> 00:32:29

the pretty face of British and so he was kind of like a public personality. So he was kind of put out there a lot. So they said, Okay, I'm gonna have been asked as the brains of the operation, and he's going to be the pretty face. So that's a good little tag team that we're going to create here. And let's send these two guys out. Okay, next thing we're going to do number two, we got the right team together. The second thing they said is we need to collect a lot of funds and that basically everybody wealthy all the leaders of Quidditch pitch together a lot of money, and they bought the most expensive gifts that they could find.

00:32:30--> 00:32:50

And it said that the king of Abyssinia who will probably talk about in a lot of detail in next week's session, because there's a lot of very interesting things about this individual. He's a very key instrumental, interesting individual from the life from the seat of the profits a lot of a sudden, but his name is basically mentioned as being

00:32:53--> 00:32:56

let me actually look it up so that I'm not just

00:32:59--> 00:33:16

Yes, his name is mentioned to be Alzheimer, or some narrations actually mentioned his name to be muslimah. Which basically in their language, what that translated to is, in their own language that translated to

00:33:17--> 00:34:09

a very pious man Roger Lune solea home. So us hammer or moose Hema, there are two different variations, or it's possible that he was known by two different names, and in their own particular language. This translated to very pious man righteous man good man. And that's what his name was. But he was known by the title of magician and an agenda which is a you know, English books will oftentimes referred to as me goose. neagu says the probably probably the, the, the most appropriate pronunciation of it. It's the proper pronunciation. That was the goose that spelled en eg us, me, goose, and joshy. In Arabic, or even in that African dialect, it was called an A joshy, Najafi that

00:34:09--> 00:34:31

was the title of the king like we'd call presidents, or Emperor. That was the title of the king, but his name was us hammer or muslimah. And we'll talk a lot about him in the next week's session. But they basically, they put two and it's rumored about him it was it was rumored about him at that time, that he was very, very fond of camel skins.

00:34:32--> 00:34:39

Because camels were something that were not very native to that region or to that area, and especially Arabian camels.

00:34:40--> 00:34:59

Were of a specific breed and kind that the skins of Arabian camels were something that he was very fond of, and used to like to use as a blanket or as a cloak and a robe or a shawl. He was very fond of, you know, camel hide. And so what they did was they found the biggest beauty, you know, nicest

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

largest red camels that they could find. And they slaughtered these camels and they cut these camels and skinned them. And then you know, did the treatment for the skins, which is called tanning, they tend these hides. And they basically packaged them nicely together and sent these as gifts, along with a lot of other gifts, they send them in the hands of us, and Amara to basically take to an agenda present to him. And something else they did. The third part of their strategy was, before you approach the king Do you want, we want you to go to all the key ministers.

00:35:34--> 00:35:51

All right. This is where you come in handy. You got a lot of you know, inside connections into all these different chords, I want you to find out which ministers actually have the ear of the king. And we want you to approach those ministers first, with this money and these gifts.

00:35:52--> 00:36:22

And we want you to win them over. And then we want you that we want you to basically petition those ministers to give you an audience with the king, and put in a good word for you with the king, because the king will listen to his ministers, especially the ones that he relies on trust. So that's how we want you to go about this. So now they set out onto this journey, this trip, all these gifts, all these goods, his whole strategy, this everything, and they set out something very interesting happened along the way.

00:36:23--> 00:37:09

It's not a very pleasant story. It's kind of inappropriate, but it goes to tell you a little bit about the caliber or the character of at least one of these individuals. The other one I'm going to rub the alarm on will eventually become Muslim. But this other man, it said about him that one of the incidents that I've mentioned before is that the prophets a lot of assemblers praying. And while the prophets a lot of evil was praying in the huddle in the Kaaba, when he went into sujood some individuals they basically thought it was really funny for laughs for a few kicks. And this was basically after this incident was was when Abu Talib gathered together and said, Hey, guys, come on,

00:37:09--> 00:37:31

we gotta get behind him. You might not like him. You might not agree with him, but he's one of us. For the sake of the family's honor and dignity, we got to get behind him. What what a few troublemakers decided to win the profits a lot of human interest to do without the harm. They basically took the intestines of a camel and they went in they dumped it onto the back of the profits allottee center.

00:37:32--> 00:38:08

And it was so heavy that the profits of Watson basically fell under the pressure of it. And he got pinned down. It was a whole stomach and all the intestines of a camel and they dumped it onto him. And he got pinned down underneath it. And then finally it said that either some of the family members of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or Abu Bakar radi Allahu anhu, went and removed it from the back of the prophets a lot he Sung. And when he got up, he was very upset. And he was very angry, because then they were all sitting around laughing and pointing into acting like children, acting very childish and immature, that the prophet SAW some got upset and he went over and he warned a few

00:38:08--> 00:38:47

of them. And it said that a few of them that he warned there were about seven people there who were part of this little, you know, very inappropriate act. He went over to them and he warned them that I warn you of the punishment of a law. You keep up Look, you can disagree if you want to disagree, but you keep up this mockery and childish behavior and allows wrath and punishment will come after you and allow the son of Walid bin Molina was one of these people. And it tells you a lot about the character of this man that he was just a very ill mannered human being. He was just a wretched man, that on this journey, it said that I've been asked for the love man whose wife was also with him.

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

They You know, he was part of it. The house was a leader of his people, or motto was the son of a liebmann Molina so they had a few servants and things like that. And so the wife have been asked for the loved one who's with him on this journey.

00:39:01--> 00:39:07

And along the way on the journey while they were on the boat and on the trip, and as I've said, you know, I've kind of

00:39:08--> 00:39:20

offered this disclaimer, it's a little bit inappropriate, but a motto being just a very terrible human being a wretched man. He basically goes to ama and he goes that, you know, I find your wife attractive.

00:39:21--> 00:39:24

Why would you mind if I

00:39:25--> 00:39:44

behaved inappropriately with your wife? And of course, I'm a been asked rhodiola I'm who being a very respectable man, as you know, evidenced by the fact that he would accept Islam later on and be a leader of not just as people but the Muslims later on. He of course said no, what's wrong with you?

00:39:45--> 00:39:47

Are you crazy? Have you lost your mind?

00:39:49--> 00:39:50

Right letter he,

00:39:52--> 00:39:52

in

00:39:53--> 00:40:00

himself narrates his incident later on. He tells him he goes What's wrong with you? Did your mother love you when you

00:40:00--> 00:40:36

Your child what kind of kind of a terrible thing is that? It's a somebody and it said that I've been asked for the loved one who was kind of like a smaller, you know, man in stature you he wasn't very tall. He was a little bit shorter, very small, very thin, very light. There's a smaller statured man. And Armada again being that kind of that pretty face. He was like a tall six foot tall guy very well built and some young strong guy. So it said that will nobody else was looking one evening on the boat after I'm out basically, I'm

00:40:37--> 00:40:50

embarrassed him and reprimanded him told him to take a hike, wretched human being, that nobody else was looking at Amara, the Allahu Allah was just kind of sitting there was a little off guard, he came and grabbed us and threw him off the boat.

00:40:51--> 00:41:12

He threw him off the boat into the water. Now I'm not gonna answer. The one thing that Amara didn't know. Because typically people in Makkah and Quraysh weren't very, you know, weren't very good at swimming. Just because they lived in the middle of the desert, they really didn't need to know how to swim. But I've been asked somebody who was very well traveled.

00:41:13--> 00:41:52

So he was like, something of an expert swimmer. Like he could just swim laps. And Amara didn't know that. So he throws him into the water. They're moving on a small, like very slow, small ship through the water, he throws him off the boat, I'm going to school is great some exercise, and he just swims right back up to the boat, gets back up on the boat, and just kind of looks at him. Like, you didn't factor that in. Did you smart guy. That's why you're the pretty face. And I'm the brains. That's right, you might be pretty, but you're an idiot. Right? You didn't know that I know how to swim, did you and he actually says to amoretti Allahu anhu. He goes, Oh, I'm sorry, if I knew that. If I knew

00:41:52--> 00:42:11

that you knew how to swim, I wouldn't have thrown you into the water. He tells him to he goes, I'm sorry. That's his apology. By the way. I'm sorry, I didn't know that you knew how to swim. Otherwise, it wouldn't have thrown you into the water. And I'm gonna be nice basically gets back up on the bone. He goes, now you go sit in your corner before I have something else done to you.

00:42:13--> 00:42:59

Right. And so this was the level of this man and the the caliber of this man. And even though this is jumping forward in the story a little bit, but basically when they actually go and this is something we'll talk about more next week since the session is gone a little long already. But later on once they actually arrive there and Ethiopia and Abyssinia. And the whole incident occurs as we'll talk about next week. And they're basically you know, headed back to McConnell, dejected and rejected that Amara messes around there and Abbey senior as well. And he tries to kind of make some trouble he tries to kind of talk to some of I'll talk more about this next week. But the king that

00:42:59--> 00:43:35

joshy at that time actually had an opposition party there was a rebel faction within Habesha within Abyssinia which was trying to overthrow this king. And he tries to kind of go and you know, play knights and kind of get in cahoots with the opposition to the king. The king finds out the king actually even makes do are against him as well remember the prophets a lot hmm and may do against him in Mecca. The King also makes against him as well. And it's basically said that while they're not the Zinnia, O'Meara ended up becoming insane.

00:43:36--> 00:44:17

while he's there in Abyssinia, he basically becomes insane runs away. Nobody can find him, nobody can locate him. I'm gonna ask for the loved one who basically has to go back to Morocco without him because nobody can find him. later on. They discover him they find him living out in the wilderness. literally living out in the jungle living out in the wilderness like a wild animal. He's completely gone insane. He's completely lost his mind. Like he needs to be institutionalized. That's, that's the condition that he's in. And it even mentioned in narrations much much later on that during the laugh over Amara mahatama De La Hoya I know when Muslims actually go in large numbers to have the

00:44:17--> 00:44:48

senior to East Africa to Asia, they actually discovered him there. They find him and when they find them, they basically grab him disease and his motto, the son of a lieben Molina like oh my god, everybody thought he was dead. Look at him. He's like a wild animal. So they find him there in this condition and they actually grab him and he's crazy and wild. So they actually have to restrain him and he starts to scream to the people he said, let me go let me go let me go Let me go. If you don't let me go all die all day all day and they literally say by evening time he had died.

00:44:50--> 00:45:00

By evening time he had died. So he had developed some type of along with the instability and insanity. He had apparently developed some type of

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

social phobia where he couldn't even be around people anymore.

00:45:05--> 00:45:17

And when some people tried to kind of restrain him and grab him and nursing back to health for his own sake, just by being around people, he became so paranoid and so emotionally unstable that he just died.

00:45:19--> 00:45:54

He literally just died. And so that's kind of how that situation played out. But getting back to the incident in the story, I might have been an officer of the Allahu anhu. And this man Amato, the son of one even Molina, they arrived now in Abyssinia, they make their way to the court of the king. They first approach some of the key ministers, because of I'm going to be in Alaska has done his homework, he's got some intelligence, he knows who he needs to talk to. They approach some of the key ministers, they give them some gifts and butter them up and talk to them really nicely and say, listen, we got a little bit of a situation on our hands. These are some slaves and runaway slaves

00:45:54--> 00:46:28

and rebels and all these crazy people, they've kind of come here and look these, you might not see a problem with these people right now. But I'm telling you, they're gonna become a problem for you later on. Plus, you know, they fattened up some of the ministers with some gifts and things like that as well. So now they feel like they got a little bit of an in with the king. And now, they basically confirmed an audience with the king and a reservation and appointment has been made. And the next day, they're supposed to go and be presented before the game. And that's basically what we'll stop for this week in Sharla. In next week's session, we'll talk about their audience with the

00:46:28--> 00:46:47

king. And then the Muslims are called into the court of the king and how they basically present themselves before the king as well. And we'll continue on from there. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us all the ability to practice everything that was said nerd Subhana Allah who will become the Sahaba Colombia hunting Mashallah in a in a surfer going out to blue lake
