salatu salam ala rasulillah while AlLahi wa sahbihi Marine
shala continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
In the previous session we talked about, we actually concluded our discussion after, I believe three or four sessions on the migration to avid sr, the hinge there are two Habesha that took place in the towards the end of the fourth year in the early part of the fifth year of new Booyah of prophethood. And towards the tail end of that what we talked about was in the migration trap, the senior was immediately almost very soon. Some of the, some of the scholars have said I'll put it at maybe as soon as a couple of weeks afterwards, after the second migration, which was the more mass migration the major migration. After that point, hums out on the alawar annual Hamza bin Abdul Mutallab the
uncle of the prophets, a lot of him accepted Islam.
And according to the more authentic and more accepted accounts of the life of the prophets, a lot less than three days after hums on or the alarm on who accepted Islam, honorable Katara, the Allahu anhu, accepted Islam. And in the previous session, we at least talked about the pre Shahada phase of Omar or the Allahu anhu. We talked about him personally, who he was, where he came from, what his personality was, like, how he grew up, what were some of his experiences growing up. But then we also talked a little bit about a couple of very interesting experiences that he had, that even if they weren't enough to take him to get him over the hump, in terms of accepting Islam, it at least
took him to the very brink of accepting Islam a couple of experiences that he had had. And then there was a third and the final major event in his life, which was the event that finally pushed it over the hump, and he was able to accept Islam after that.
And this is narrated by
there's something else very, what we'll come back and talk about this rather. So this is narrated by
a few of different Sahaba rhodiola, one whom, who relate this account from a couple of different perspectives. One of them is, of course, the individual himself, nor I had been abdillah. Other accounts of this are related by other younger Sahaba, who were able to hear that and collect the full account from the different people who were involved in the situation. But this is a very well known accounting story that is mentioned in the majority of the books of Sierra. And it mentions that honorable Hata radi Allahu taala. And who was of course, he had the reputation that he had, and we've talked about this previously. But it talks about how one time he went to the Kaaba, he went to
the beta out of Harlem. And while he was there, he heard some people talking about the constant issues that they were having that they were experiencing, in regards to the prophets a lot, he said them, that's why some of the books of Sierra actually meet mentioned that alwaleed bin movida was when he went and made that offer to the prophets, a lot of him that will make you the wealthiest amongst us, will make you the most powerful amongst us that this was before the conversion of the Allahu anhu. And what that would basically mean is that they had explored many different avenues, and were not able to finally solve this problem that they were at least experiencing. So they were
having a conversation or a discussion about this, and I'm gonna be a lot more on who said, I'll take care of things. I'll take care of it, what's the big deal. And so he mentioned that he took his sword, and while carrying the sword was not completely out of character for people at that time. But what was a sign of somebody setting out with an intention to with an intention of violence was that that person would not have their sword tied tied to their side, rather, that person would hold their sword in their hand.
So kind of even a police officer carries a gun all the time. But when they take the gun out of the holster, that shows the intent to take some action. So similarly, Amara de la mano, actually unstrapped unsheathed his sword from his side and held it in his hand as a statement and said, I'll go take care of things. And so it says that he basically set out and he seemed like he was a man on a mission. He seemed very intent, very serious.
to basically go and take care of things. And along the way he ran into an Orion bin Abdullah, radi Allahu anhu. Was this a hobby, who was a companion of the prophet SAW some of us on those early Muslims. And he saw him and he saw that Amara, the Allahu anhu had his sword in his hand. So he asked him aina to read Yama. He said, what were What are you intending to do? Where do you want to go on? So he said, What do you do? Mohammedan he said I'm going to look for Mohammed has a sabi under the ferrata Andhra Pradesh was Safa Allah mana where Aberdeen and our Saba Alia Tina, fuck for us to Lou, he said I'm going to find this Muhammad, this man who has abandoned this heretic, this
man was abandoned his religion he has divided up all the you know the the energies of the Quraysh he has made some of our most intelligent people make fools out of themselves. He has tainted our religion. He has cursed our our gods and deities. So I'm going to go and kill him. I'm going to finish him off. So no, I am radi Allahu anhu said to him, because you also have to understand or I'm literally a loved one who is not trying to cause any more problems for anyone but you have to understand that moment. This is Ahmad. He has a certain reputation that he carries. He seems like he's very upset and angry. He has a sword in his hand and he seems very intense. hell bent on
harming the profits a lot of the time so No, I am not the one who becomes very emotional and very defensive and very worried. So he says, well, la isla de la Rocca enough sukham enough ck Allah. He says you you you are extremely diluted, you are deluding yourself. Oh, Omar. He said Ronnie abdomen after the key Gotham cllr de Vaca Delta Mohammed. He said Do you really think that but what I've done enough, the family of the prophets a lot of them will let you walk around freely after you have killed and murdered Mohamed Salah Lisa them, the grandson of Abdulmutallab, a man from the lead family of leadership in their family, you think they're going to tolerate that.
And he saw that Amara, the Allahu anhu really wasn't fazed by this idea. He didn't just seem to care. He said, You really think they're gonna let you walk around, they won't kill you in retribution. He saw, oh, my God alone. Didn't even bat an eye.
So now no aim for the old one who realizes he has to up his game a little bit. He has to try a different strategy. So he says
he said, then he goes to the next step. So you have to understand. No, I'm not the one who is very desperate.
And, you know, desperate times calls for call for desperate measures. So no, I am not the one who says that. Why don't you go back home and fix things at home? You're out solving other people's problems trying to put other people in line. Why don't you put your own family in line first. Now I'm literally alone with this was news to him. said what are you debating? So who are you talking about? What are you talking about? So he kind of calls him on his bluff. He calls him on his bluff. He goes What are you talking about my family? What do you mean I need to fix my family.
So he says hatanaka webinar I'm Mika. Sorry, beans, sorry, beans aid we're off to cuff ottima he says that your brother in law, who's also your cousin, and your sister who's married to this cousin of yours, your sister Fatima and her husband Simon's aid, saving savings from the National mubasher as well. And then he says fucka we're lucky as Lama whatever I'm Mohammed Allah de phallic habima so he goes that both of them have accepted Islam and both of them follow Muhammad Ali Salim upon the religion that Mohammed has brought. And so you want to deal with somebody go deal with them. So I'm gonna do what I knew immediately changes route, and he heads over to his sister's home. And the
narration mentions that when he reaches the door from outside of the door, because you have to understand the homes at that time from outside of the door when he hears is that he hears three voices reciting
that his sister Fatima and her husband, segments aid. We're having a Koran class with their foreign teacher therefore on tutor about being an Arab radi Allahu taala. And so the story of the conversion of the loved one who is a profound story at many different levels, there's obviously the importance of Quranic education, and just realization in the power of the Columbia Law, which we're going to see when a loved one who reads the Quran for himself. But another wrinkle another lesson another moral of the story is the importance of Quranic education at home, the importance of Quranic education at home, the importance of halaqaat of the Quran going on at home, the importance of the
recitation of the Quran at home. This is very, very important. There needs to be a small Quran Holocaust.
In each and every single home, now, it's understandable that maybe there's two things here that I gotta say, number one, it's understandable that parents might feel that, you know, maybe they're not qualified to have any type of foreign class at home. So it's understandable. But that still doesn't excuse us from the fact that at some level, there needs to be a floor on halakha at home. So find the parents might not be able to do Tafseer of the Quran at home for their children, that's understandable, but at the very least, they can at least sit and recycle together. There can at least be 15 minutes a day, 30 minutes a day, dedicated to just reciting the Quran together as a
family. It is very, very important, this is necessary. But the second thing I have to say about that is at the same time, a lot of oftentimes I have parents coming to me making that excuse while I don't know or I can don't even I can't even sit and recycle it on at home with at home with my children, because I bet that you eat, I don't want to ruin their reputation. That's why I send them to the masjid the Quran class at the masjid operand school at the masjid. But what I have to say to that is that it's not a good enough of an excuse, we take this excuse, and we basically live off the rest of our lives based off of this excuse, or I don't know, I don't know, I don't have knowledge. I
don't know what to teach them. I can't even read it with them. I don't want to ruin their dreams ruin their pronunciation. How about instead of not teaching our kids put on at home, instead of not reciting Quran with our kids at home. Instead of that, why don't we just take out a few days, dedicate the next couple of weeks to learning something so that we do become qualified to teach our own children. parents must be the first teachers of their children homes must be the first medabots the first mothers are the first Islamic school that our kids attend. And the excuse that I don't know is not good enough for me as a father. Fine. I don't know that's very good that at least I
understand what my deficiencies are. But it's about time that I started working on those deficiencies. I did learn I did educate myself. And you know what very honestly, again, I'm not talking about some high level scholarly Tafseer of the Quran. I'm talking about basics. basics, such as just reciting Quran with Tajweed. Or maybe even just knowing the basic translation of a small surah being able to just kind of, in your own language, how you sit in you, you're not a mathematician, you're not a math professor. But you sit down and help your kid with their school homework, don't you? You're not a professor of English literature, but you help them write their
book report. So at the very least, you can sit down and at least talk about something. Talk about something with your children, but it and it doesn't take a whole lot to learn at that level. It really does not, I mean, one reference that I have and this is not meant to be a plug. But one reference one one reference in my mind that I have is that if it's the dream is the problem.
A good friend and a student of mine Halford we some he teaches at the dream course. It's one weekend. only reason why I mentioned this, don't worry, it's not coming here. I'm not advertising Of course, I'm just giving you a reference. He probably spent about 15 hours with with the students during that weekend. No, they don't become masters of Tajweed. No, they don't get any jazza degree. But what they do learn is they learned the very basics. In 15 hours, he learned the very basics, to at least start reading in the right direction.
We can't make one weekend,
we can start putting in 1520 minutes a day, sitting with the mom sitting with the harvest playing a YouTube video. Again, half of the time I know he's recorded the entire 30th juz where he basically walks you through reciting each surah in the 30th years.
And so at the very least, if I can invest 15 minutes a day, 20 minutes a day over the next couple of weeks, so that I am capable of you know leading some type of Quranic reading and education within my home is very important. So we see here the blessings of each and every single home becoming a halaqa becoming a mother of the Quran at a very basic level, then fine when my kids need to learn something more. They want to learn to fear they'll come here to you mom z is hella tougher tafsir that's understandable. But at the very least I can get the balls rolling, I can get things started at home, and I must I need to and that's basically what was going on here. This was so why would some of the
earliest of Muslims, especially though some some of these early Muslims, who are very close to the Prophet, Allah, He said them? Where do you think they learned how to have a Koran help at home? It was from the instruction of the prophets a lot. So it was part of the strategy of the prophets, a lot of them that as people were accepting Islam to turn each and every single home into a basic elementary level kindergarten of the Quran.
It was every single home was turning into a preschool for Koran.
At the very least,
to nourish the souls to develop the spirituality of the people to strengthen people in their emotion and their relationship with the law. And that's what was going on here. So I'm gonna be a lot more approaches outside the door and he can hear them reciting Quran together. He knocks on the door. The narration says that they look out, they peek out from the door and they see it's a matter of the local seminar agency that when you lock knocks on the door, he's actually screaming and yelling and screaming, open up, open up, I can hear you. I know you're in there, because he's so angry and upset and hubbub in an era de la when he hears the alarm run outside screaming, he hides.
He runs and hides, they hide him, they stash him somewhere in the home, and they open the door and the pages of the Quran are still out, he buses through the door and immediately pounces, his brother in law. And since I heard somebody else who was there was a third person with you. And they say we swear swear there was nobody else. And he says, have you left this Really? Have you left our religion? Have you followed this man Muhammad, a church beating his brother in law, severely, he's in a in a in a rage. All he sees is red, he's beating his brother in law, his sister comes and tries to grab him and pull him off of her husband. And he swings back and ends up striking his sister. And
the narration actually mentions that she's bleeding.
When he looks around, and then that's when she finally says to him, she says to him that she says yes or not you want to know you want the answer? You want the answer? Yes. We have believed in Muhammad. We have accepted as Dean, we have rejected these idols. We do follow the demon Muhammad, what are you going to do about it? You want to kill us go out and kill us do what you have to do do your worse.
And at that time, the loved one who looks at his sister sees her bleeding. And he kind of calms down a little bit realizes what he's done. realizes what what what a rage he was in, and he comes down.
And when he finally comes down, regains a little bit of his composure. Then he sees the pages line going, he goes, What's that?
and begins to move towards it.
His sister goes and grabs the pages, snatches them up, holds the pages to herself. And she says no, you can't touch it.
I will not let you put your hands on this. And he clarifies his intention to a sister. My intention is not to rip them or disrespect them. I want to read them.
I might as well. My own sister is also gotten caught up in all this nonsense. I might as well find out what this is about. So she says no, you're not clean. You're not pure. Because Oh my god, Allahu Allah. And another narration he talks about in another account of him accepting Islam. He actually mentions that how you know how he used to remain drunk most of the time. So she said no, you're probably you probably have alcohol on you and things like that. No. So she makes him clean up. After he cleans up then she hands him the pages. And the narration tells us that the loved one who begins to read and it's suitor number 20 sudo Taha
and he begins to read from the beginning of Surah Taha baja manzana nickel per liter spa, that we have not sent down this Quran upon you to ruin your life in that have kiloton Lima yaksha. Rather, this is a powerful reminder for the person who will heed the reminder. Who is who is overwhelmed by the greatness of Allah. In letters kurata Lima yaksha 10 de la me man holla Sam, Archie Lola, this is being sent down little by little by the one who created mehman halakhah sama min min Haleakala was sama watching Allah from the one who created the earth and the one who created the heavens. Most High the sky most time.

Romano llrc stowa who maphis amaravati Why am I Why am I being thorough to Him alone belongs to all that which is in the heavens all that which is in the earth and all that which is between the two and all that which is underneath the surface of the earth in the ground that we see were intended
for in the huya Allah Musa Rafa and even if you were to speak up out loud, then that's fine. That's optional for you Why? For in Abuja, Allah moussaka because he knows that which is secret, and he knows even that which is even more quiet than that which is secret, meaning he hears in he knows that what you whisper and even those those things that you don't even utter that remain hidden deep buried within your heart. Allahu La Ilaha Illa who that will smile
Who is this? This is Allah there's no one worthy of worship but him for him alone are the Most Excellent and Beautiful Names well Taka Hadith Musa some of the narrations say that he only read up here to Ayah number eight some of the narration say no he read even past this. While attack Hadith Musa has a really fascinating story of Musa ever reached you have you ever heard the story israa nan fatale alley otaku Indiana's to naran lolly, Chico. minha because in agito, Allah Neruda, when he saw a fire in the distance, and he told his family y'all stay here.
It says if I can spot a fire far away in the distance, I'm going to go there and hopefully, I'll be able to come back to you from there with some of the fire or maybe I'll find some directions. Maybe somebody there will be able to guide me will be able to help us out
for Emma Johanna udia yamasa when he finally reached a fire, then he was called out to Oh Moosa in the Hon caffeic la la most definitely, I am your Lord in your master so take off your shoes in the COVID woudl mocha Desi to our most definitely you are at the very sacred valley have to while you're standing in a very sacred place. Well Touka first Amir Lima, you ha and I have chosen your Musab. So listen very carefully to what is about to be sent down in nanny and Allah in nanny and Allah. And the second narration says that he read up to here I am number 14, in many anila most definitely me, I am Allah. There's a very interesting nuance in the ayah. Here, Allah refers to himself speaks
about himself three times in this ayah.
And each time I want you to see the progression in ne ne is what we call an attached pronoun.
Then a lot refers to himself with Anna which we call an independent pronoun, which is a more powerful, which is more powerful in its in its emphasis than an attached pronoun. And then he reversed himself as a law which is his name, which is more powerful than an independent pronoun. So you see the progression a lot. This is basically the facility explained to us. What we witness from going from an attached to an independent to the name of act of a law, the actual name of a law. What we witness here is the development of Musa Elisa Lam's a man within that conversation, whose alley slums a man is completed. And it shows that journey how a person grows in the recognition of Allah
subhanaw taala. And when when are the loved one who read these words at the culmination of his recitation? In any analog when you read this, La Ilaha Illa Anna, there are there is no one worthy of worship of worthy of worship, except for me for abandoning, so enslave yourself to me, worship Me, welcome Miss salata Lee decree and established a prayer to remember me
to remember me when I'm around a loved one who read this ayah
and went through that journey of recognizing Allah
or marauding Allahu anhu put the pages down and looked at his sister
and said, I need you to take me to Muhammad immediately.
I need you to take me to Muhammad immediately. I have to go now.
Now, his sister, of course still weary.
of Arma radi Allahu anhu. She says, What's your intention? What do you intend to do?
And he says, We're lucky I intend no harm. I only want to go there so I can accept Islam.
And as he says, this hubbub radi Allahu anhu comes out of hiding.
He comes out from where he was hiding.
And he says congratulations, your armor? Obviously the armor.
He says just last night I was with the prophets a lot he said
I was sitting with the profits a lot he said him when he made
that Oh la la Eden Islam our law aid the religion of Islam be a bill hakobyan he shall be amor been a sham, either a the religion of Islam through the through abou Jahan
or through Omar bin Omar the son of Qatar. So just like the prophets Allah made
that Oh a lot a the religion of Islam either through the conversion of abou john or the conversion of hot tub. And it seems like the profits a lot of these items do I was accepted for you? Yeah.
It was accepted for you.
And so now they go about their day they head out basically, no matter the alarm and he takes his sword now in the narration says that he ties it to his side he shields the sword and he ties it basically straps, you know his weapon back in.
But nevertheless are what are the Allahu anhu. carrying a weapon in and of itself is enough cause for concern even though he holstered it, it's still a little discerning.
And so they head out and they reach the house of Darryl Arkham. They reached her which was not too far from the hut on the Kaaba. And Amara, the last one who knocks on the door
when he knocks on the door and the Sahaba, the Allahu Imam, and it says that the narration mentioned that that must have been a time for, you know, some prayer or some learning with the prophet to legend that quite a few Sahaba were there in the house at that time. So it seems like it was a time for a HELOC or a class or a salon or something that there were a lot of people who were there. So one of those have are the loved one who got up and went and looked outside.
And when he peeked through the door, he saw a lot of understanding out there which was enough troubling enough and then he saw that he had his sword tied to a side so he runs back in and he says almost syndrome a law I'm gonna is outside me as a sword with him.
So Hamza radi Allahu anhu. Immediately the Sahaba are very nervous and worried. The Profit System calms everyone down. He comes out of the logistics of terrorism a couple of days ago, if you remember when we talked about a homicide or the loved one who had gone through his own little journey, he came and proclaimed his faith and then spent the whole night in turmoil comes to the profits, a lot of them the next day, makes do it to a lot before coming to the process element says, oh, Allah, guide me to that which is the best for me. I don't understand what's going on. Things are moving too fast. And when it comes to the prophets, Eliza, he just opens up and he goes, look, we're
We're families. I'm just going to level with you. I'm conflicted. And the prophets. Allah says, Let me tell you something about this religion. And Hamza about the love languages. I swear that's what I've been waiting for you to do.
And the prophets, a lot of them recite some Quran. So Hamza rhodiola guano. And by the time the prophet SAW some is done with the recitation, Hamza radi Allahu anhu says, I'm good, I'm convinced. So how long? Well, I don't even know it's been three days. He's kind of gone through his own little journey and reflective process. And it said that those those first three days are Hamza rhodiola, Juana was Muslim, he did not leave the house. He literally was just camped out there. Morning and evening, day and night, which is spending, just like consider almost the I take off. He was doing etica for three days with the prophets allottee center. So by this time, he's fully empowered in his
human and his faith. He comes out of the alone one who stands up and says to the prophets a lot, he says, He says on messenger of Allah let him in.
If he's come with hate,
in Java, you need to hire. If he's come with paid, then we will do whatever it is that we have to do in order to make sure that he receives that paid, we'll take care of him.
But in Java, you reduce Sharon. But if he's come seeking something bad, then let him come up to to be safey. And I will kill him with his sword.
If he's coming here to do harm to your messenger of Allah, I will take his sword I will disarm him, and then I will kill him with his own sword. So let him come.
So the prophets allottee, Selim stands up and says, open the door,
very quietly, very calmly walks in the door. And the narration says and this is very interesting to understand the balance in the personality of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was very welcoming. He was very embracing.
But at the same time, the prophets along the sun was also a man of confidence. And the prophets a lot is his greatest quality was that something he advised us to Zoo unseen in a seminar?
We're Kelly manassa, kodra okuni him deal with people according to their level and speak to people according to their level of intelligence, understand different people and deal with different people differently.
Not it's not one size fits all.
And so the profits allow him understanding of the long run and also understanding the condition and the emotional state of the people who were there around him. The profits allows him narration says he moved forward. He walked forward very quickly, like what we would call he stepped up on Amara de la Honda. So I'm under the law No, literally walked in the door, just stepped into the door very calmly. You know, when somebody rushes up to you and kind of gets up in your face. The prophets lie to him walked up to the laguan who gotten his face
raesha says he grabbed him from here.
And then he said, What do you want your alma? What do you want? What do you here for?
And the prophets, Allah even told him he says,
You will not stop making trouble until the punishment of Allah finally comes down upon you. Because I think Ilana had a reputation. And see you also have to understand this is not unnecessary. It's not like the Prophet says, I'm just picking on some poor guy for no reason. Then there are other narrations, I've talked about them as well, that clearly talks about the fact that all men are the one who has the torture of many of the early Muslims.
Some of the narrations that I mentioned earlier when I talked about some of the Sahaba or the aluminum undergoing torture and abuse, that are on rhodiola, who I know many of them had suffered torture at the hands of the loved one. And again, I mentioned this in the previous session on a loved one who is the nephew.
His mother's brother is abou Jan. So he was taught and mentored by his uncle abou john. So he was by the side of Abuja, oftentimes in Abuja was engaging in torture. So the prophets a lot of humans dealing with them very appropriately. So he walks up to him and he says, You will not start making trouble until finally the The Wrath of Allah comes down on you What's wrong with you, you're here to make trouble again.
And one very softly, very gently.
Because he's gone through this transformative experience.
He says, All messenger of Allied do not come here with any such intention. I come here to accept Islam.
And narration says that when the Allahu anhu says this to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the prophets Allah vsam yells out, Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar, he says, attack me.
And when the narrations even mentioned that the rest of the Sahaba radi Allahu anhu, scream a lot of work about along with the prophets along the center.
And then the prophets, Allah sits him down and gives him the Shahada, and the alojado except to sama at that point.
And this is a story of how I'm going to do hautala de la mano came to Islam. But the story doesn't end there. It actually goes on to mention
that Amaro the Allahu anhu, after this,
wondered when the narrations mentioned that he goes to Abuja home
and he knocks on abou jobs or his uncle, the head of the family. He knocks on his door Abuja Hall Of course, he's it's his nephew, who he looked at with quite some hope as maybe a successor somebody who is grooming and mentoring to take over his position in the city. He sees him so he welcomes I mean, you know you kind of welcome in like your your your protege, your assistant. Your second incoming Oh, come on in. Come on. Don't worry about it. Just come on.
He welcomes him in Marathi Allahu anhu. Knowing better, basically says no, no, I came here to tell you that I've accepted Islam. I follow Mohammed salatu salam now.
And Abu Jamal is so discussed it
tells him Get out from here. What have you done? Do you understand what you've done? You foolish boy. Because the narration mentioned our Amaro the alojado at this time is probably about 2026 27 years old Generation Z 28. None of the narration mentioned being older than 20 years old. So he's young.
So he says you realize what you've done, You foolish boy, get out of here.
When amarante Allahu anhu leaves there, one of the narrations mentioned that he meets another man by the name of Jamil
who was one of the men of Quraysh and he basically tells him that I've accepted Islam. I've become a Muslim.
And when he finds out that Omar rhodiola han was accepted Islam, he basically Jamil bin Mama,
Jamil, he goes and goes around search telling everyone Have you heard Amara says if accepted as I have you heard Allah has become Muslim. Have you heard? I'm gonna join Muhammad. He goes around and telling everyone so Abdullah bin Omar rhodiola Anima the synagogue.
Abdullah, he's some narrations are truly mentioned that he had already accepted Islam at this point. But that goes back to the debate about how old he was and different things like that. But nevertheless, he at least mentioned the fact that I was a boy Well, no hula, hula. He says I was a boy at this time, but I was I couldn't recognize I couldn't understand what was going on. I was at least you know a 1012 years old like I could understand what was going on.
She says I was with my father. And we went to the huddle
and amaravati along wanna walk through the door of the Harmon everybody there had already been whispering and gossiping about Omar the alojado becoming a Muslim. He says as soon as you walk through the door, everybody turned around and looked.
Everyone turned around and looked when the narration mentioned that that man Jamil bin Mama was actually there. So when he walks in, he goes, Hey, everybody, this the guy was telling you about all that, look, he's left the religion as well. And Viola Han, who, of course, being you know, the personality that he had a matter of the old man who says, candy bar, he goes, this man lies. He says, Well, I can make a slumped. Because the word that the man used was he said, The Saba. He's a heretic. He's for he's given up his religion. And under the alarm, who says, No, this man lies like any other slumped, rather, I've become a Muslim, which I hate to Allah and Allah and Mohammed Abu
rasuluh. And I have given testimony to the fact that there is no one worthy of worship of Allah, and that Muhammad is a slave in the Messenger of Allah. Yeah, that's me.
This was basically a matter of the Aloha news version of saying, Come at me. Come on, Come at me, bro. Bring it on. And what ends up happening, the narration mentions that everybody started rushing up to the alojado. And they say the mentioned the narration mentioned that there were over a dozen people in the room at that time, and they all basically came at him. And some of their agents mentioned that there were two three dozen people. And it said that amaravati alano started fighting them.
It's like a strange stray dog scene, like out of the matrix. You don't want he's like fighting like all the hundreds of guys. Like there's literally like two dozen guys that are single handedly fighting them. One of the narration mentions that they fought for an hour.
can imagine what that must have been like. You ever watch a UFC fight? If you haven't, don't know. But if you haven't, you know what I'm talking about. UFC fights, they fight for what? three rounds, five rounds. Some of them fight three rounds. Each round is
two minutes, three minutes. They fight for a total of like 10 minutes. Have you seen what they look like afterwards? They're bloodied and brutally beaten and bruised. They look terrible. can imagine someone fighting like a dozen people for an hour.
So how long
this was the him of
a loved one. He fought like a dozen men for like an hour just going at it non stop. They kept the he kept pushing them back and throwing them down. They kept coming at him over and over again. And he fought literally like two dozen people for like an hour. Finally after an hour on another on who backed away. And the narration says I'm delivering his son who's watching all of this little boy fighting back somewhere, watching all of this. He says finally my father stepped back. And he sat down because he was tired.
He was tired. He sat down, but he didn't give up. There's a difference.
He sat down. And he tells them, do what you got to do.
Y'all are free to do whatever it is that you want to do. I'm done trying to fight you guys off. Or like three dozen of you. It's one against 30. I feel kind of sad for you guys. But I just you do what you have to do.
And some of the people who were there on that day they actually remembering this occasion. They mentioned it's in the books of Sierra that it will lie here, there were 300 of us, he would have kept fighting each and every single one of us. On that day, Omar already had a reputation. But on that day seemed like he had no quit in him. It seemed like he just could not be defeated that day. No matter what if there were 300 of us, he would have fought all 300 he just had something going on that day. And that was the man the thing that he felt in his heart. His heart was surging with the new TV man, and he just couldn't be stopped. So finally he sits down and says you can you do what
you have to you want to kill me go ahead and do whatever you can try your best.
And the narration says that an old man stood up. Very old men is acapella. shikumen Quraysh and a whole lot in Hebron. were commissioned Moshe hataoka following him for kalama shadow. So an old man stood up who is dressed like a very elderly wise man, wearing like a robe and things like that, like clothes that old, you know, wise men would wear learned men.
And he stood up and he said, What's going on with you guys? What are you guys doing here? And they said Saba Rama,
this man on his left the religion and so we're trying to
teach them a lesson. Trying is the key operative word here. And he said Ma Ma should leave him even B.
He said Roger don't start rolling FC. He
says he's the man who's chosen a path for him. So what do you care? How does this concern you? Why do you care?
For mother to do her own? urbani rd? Use Ramona law comm cybercom Hakata. Do you really think that his family and what he was saying was actually very intelligent? Because who is more vile who is more violent than a Buddha? But when
we went to the house of uncle john and said, I've accepted Mohammed's religion. What did he do? He cursed him and threw him out. But he didn't kill him. Because he was family. So the man the old man says, Do you really think Du Bois de the family of Ahmad is just gonna hand over one of their young, youngest and brightest? They're just gonna hand them over to you like that is a disrespect for the family. Hello, Anna. Roger, leave him alone.
excuse me, Abdullah bin Omar, the son says that literally.
It was as if like, somebody just pulled back the cloth because the crowd was converged or Under Armor. It was like everybody just retreated back immediately. Everybody just walked away. And I'm gonna I'm delivering Omar Ilhan Omar says that I asked my father quite a few years later,
I remembered that that was a memory I had seen all of that play out. And I asked my father Botha and Medina after him after the hit Raja Medina. Years later I asked my father Yeah, but he monitoraggio landlady sagittal coma and cabbie, maka, Yama, Islam, Taiwan, you know, lunak Who is the man who reprimanded the people and basically made everyone leave you alone. The day they were trying to kill you the day you accepted Islam. He said that as soon as Allah asked, meanwhile, as soon as sacmi He says, Oh, my son, that man was allowed Meanwhile,
so I'm gonna do a lot more I never forgot the, you know, the wisdom that Osman whiten showed on that day. And so this was kind of destroying of the conversion of the love and who, and it said in the narration that soon thereafter, oh, my God, a loved one who goes to the profits along with him and says, oh, messenger of Allah, we need to go pray in the huddle. We need a public like demonstration. We're here we're not going nowhere.
And now we got basically two guys to kind of lead the charge to make a strong impression myself and Hamza. So we need to go out there. We need to march out into the public, we don't hide no more.
And the profits all of a sudden says, let's do it.
And it says that I've done I've been much older the Allahu anhu relates the incident that they basically gathered up together. hums out on the Lavanya nominal Hurtado de la Ron is stood at the front, and they basically marched out and the walk from the house of our come into the garden to the Bay to LA and it said in the narration that a lot of the a lot of walked in first and basically made his intentions known. He said, everybody, I'm going to pray here right now. Okay.
I'm gonna pray right now. And I'm pretty sure nobody's gonna have a problem with that.
And then everybody else walked in afterwards behind him. And they say that they stood up, they lined up with again, Amara de la Juana and Hamza or the logo on both ends of the SFX. And the prophets, Allah stood in front end, he led them in prayer. And that was like the first public demonstration major successful public demonstration that the Muslims were able to make. And they were able to pray publicly at the huddle itself. And this was the first time and this basically is what I've done. I've been much older the Allahu Allahu refers to in the very famous narrations of Abdullah bin Masood, where he says, Miko Nanak did Allah and Musalia in del Kava Hata sama Rama, that we were not
able to pray near the Kaaba until Alma de la mano accepted Islam for llama sama Omar cotton operation Hata salah and Acaba was with Selena, who then went to accept tourism, he literally fought off the Quraysh at Aqaba, that incident that we talked about, and then Ahmad prayed at the Kaaba and we prayed along with him. And it's a Hebrew hottie is a famous narration magazine, or a certain movie Islam Mundo Aslam armindo hottub that we have remained,
you know confident. We have been confident since the conversion of Omar bin Al Khattab radi Allahu wa new. And then of course other famous statement of Eben Massaro de de la mano where he says in Islamic Americana for a time that the Islam of amo the conversion of oma to Islam was a victory well in the Hadrian hunter who candidate Muslim and his migration from Mecca.
Medina because he was one of the few people who openly publicly migrated to Medina. Everybody else was slipping away in the middle of the night.
guano packed up his bags, went over to the GABA prayed at the GABA showed his bags to everyone and said, I'm going. If anyone has a problem, you can see me outside but your wife will be a widow. And that's how you migrate. So he said that the migration of a loved one was a victory. We're in the minority who cannot Ramadan and his rulership over the Muslims. His leadership for the believers, his being the halifa the middle momineen was a mercy will have an akuna wa new saliendo Gabba Hata sama oma. We were there and we will miss him but we could not pray near the GABA until Omar accepted Islam for llama sama Omar cattle operation Hata sola and Al Qaeda or Selena ma who and then of
course he says that Amara accepted Islam and he fought off the operation and he prayed near the Kaaba and all of us were able to pray with him near the Kaaba. So this is a story of the alojado accepting Islam.
But one of the things that I was saving here till the very end, that I found very, very interesting, almost, you know, remarkable was that one of the early converts to Islam.
She was known by the name of Omar Abdullah. But she was a mother of
Abdullah bin Ahmed bin rubia. His mother, Omar Abdullah, she was the daughter of Abou hyphema. She was an early convert to Islam. And it's mentioned narration that her and her son were amongst the people were from the people who migrated from Makkah to Abyssinia to Habesha to East Africa, her and her son, and she mentioned the story, which shows you something very interesting. It shows you two things. Number one, it shows you about how the loved one who had some good insight of him. So when the prophets a lot, he said makes two either Allah help Islam through a wujiang or Alma, why Allah chose a loved one, you see some good insight of the men. But secondly, it also shows you how they
perceived the love Manu, and how their perception of Armando de la mano at the end of the day was irrelevant. how we perceive people socially is irrelevant. But it's how the standing or the position that someone has in the sight in the eyes of Allah, you just never know, the good that is in someone.
So she mentioned that
we were packing up and basically trying to leave my car in order to go to and Habesha in Nanana Tara Hello, Ella. Habesha
waka Dabba amici Bobby hija, Tina and my son Ahmed
had gone to take care of or actually it's her husband, Ahmed. She says that my husband had gone to go take care of a few things. His alphabet, Amara Taka,
Ki Amaro de la one saw me standing outside the home with some bags carrying some things. And he was still a mushrik he was not Muslim yet. Call it Vokoun Nana karmenu Bella. And Omar was trouble for us. as weak Muslims. Ahmad was trouble when we saw that we ran we hid because he was one of the people who used to torture us.
And then Nana,
we're shut down Elena. She says that he used to harm us and he was very harsh on us. palette for color. inulin tilapia, Omar Abdullah, when he saw her with some bags, he goes, are you planning to go somewhere? Omar Abdullah Are you planning to go somewhere? She said and I'm we are we're lucky enough to Jana but this is also a woman who's a believer. So she feels courage. And she says we're lucky enough to gender fee or the law. We are going to go out into the earth of God or they tune our car to Muna you people have harmed us, you people have done wrong to us. You oppress us. So yes, I'm going to go but I'm going to go out into the land of Allah. The earth that is owned by God.
Hatha Yoga Allah, Allah Allahu la Mahajan. until Allah will make a way for us and alone will make a place for us. And then she says that Omar he looks at me. I just made my intentions very clear. We're gonna go from here and go seek refuge somewhere. She says her mama looks at me.
And he says to me Sahiba Kamala, may God be with you?
May God be with you.
And she says what are ah hula hula cotton llama canara I saw some softness and armor that never seen before.
Someone sort of
he turned around and walked away from there. And he seemed like he was sad.
Because he was thinking to himself,
FEMA who's a hero,
There, he turned around from there. And he seemed sad because of what he had done to us. He started to think, am I really this type of a person? Have I really made these people's lives so difficult, so terrible, that they have to run away from their homes? What have I done? What are you doing your mama? She seems I get a moment to self reflection. And then she says that
my husband came back. And I said, Yeah, Abdullah, Laura at home or on the phone with a partner who has no Alena. She says that men you missed it. You will not believe what just happened. Omar came here. And then she told him the whole story. And then he asked her the question, this also tells you about those early believers. They were all diaries. They were all do it law.
They would all call her to Allah. She he asks his wife of a mid America TV Islami, were you hopeful of him accepting Islam? And she says, Yeah, I was.
But then she says that her husband says to her, like Muslim under the law at now, you similar era at this man that you saw today? Your Honor, I know. I know. Don't worry, he's not going to accept Islam. Hata you see Mahima on
the donkey of Qatar will accept Islam before the son of hottub will accept Islam. All right. I understand he might have had a moment of reflection or something like that. But don't worry, woman. All right, let me tell you. There's a woman that says the problem with you women, you get all caught up in the moment. Don't get too excited. Don't get too happy. All right, the donkey of kebab will accept Islam, before the son of Qatar will accept Islam. And she says that my husband wasn't very hopeful in his in Islam, Lima kanaya Rahman, Hilda de Vaca, Swati and Islam because of how harsh he was against Islam and the Muslims.
But what's very interesting here, like I pointed out before I started the story, you see some good inside, deep buried inside, maybe it was the alcohol that had been covering it for so long.
But you see some goodness that was buried inside of the llamando that showed at this moment. And without a doubt, this is the reason why he was he was the one for whom to derive the profits a lot he was accepted.
But secondly, even though this is also as a hobby under the law, and we make no judgment about the hobby, but I'm talking about public perception. Look how they perceived the alarm on who he says a donkey will accept this long before Omar does.
What was your perception of Armando the alohar? No. Can you imagine that?
Can you imagine how shocked his men must have felt
20 years after he made that comment, when a loved one who is ameerul momineen halifa came out in the shock. He probably used to sit there and think and look and just be like, man, who would nobody saw this coming. Nobody could have predicted this. Nobody could have predicted this, as is obvious from the statement.
But it goes to show you that no matter what we think about anybody,
because we project our own weaknesses upon other people, we project the evil in our own hearts upon other people. We have biases and prejudices that we project onto people, no matter what we think about people, no matter how we perceive people, all that matters is their position in the eyes in the sight of Allah. And you just never know what someone's capable of. You never know the goodness that somebody has. You never know the greatness that someone is destined for. And that's exactly why we don't judge people. We don't underestimate people, we value people.
It was somebody says, Well, what if there he's a bad person? He's a terrible person. Well, we're supposed to go around just expecting good from everybody. Absolutely.
If they turn out to be bad, then so be it. I didn't lose anything. It's them who lost something. But if they turn out to be good, then at least I did not underestimate someone.
And maybe just maybe I could have been the one to even facilitate. I could have been chosen by Allah as the suburb as the facilitator of the good within that person. Imagine what the reward of that is.
even imagine what the reward of that is. So the story of Amara, the Allahu anhu is very profound for
The power of the Quran in this way we all need to read the book of Allah and reflect on the book of Allah. That was that moment that changed your life. From the importance of having the reading and the learning and the teaching and the discussion of the Quran within our homes. It's quite unfortunately today The tragedy is it doesn't even go on within all the houses of Allah.
We don't even have proper halaqaat of the Quran going on in all the massage today. When in reality, the standard is forget about massage massage, it is a no brainer. It's supposed to be going on within each and every single home. Every home is meant to be a mother's Head of School of the poor.
And we have to revive that sooner of the prophets. Allah bless him enough, the Sahaba the loved one.
And we could have almost waiting on our doorsteps today as well.
Number three, we see that honorable Cataldi Allah had some goodness within him. Always look for the good within people. And no matter what's going on in your life. No matter what's going on in your life. Always try to focus on something good. And it might be one little good thing that you're holding on to but that one good thing is your is your lifeline. That was that's what might end up saving you. And then fourthly and finally never looked down on anyone. Never underestimate anyone. It's a greatest mistake you can make. Because you never know what somebody is capable of. You never know the greatness that someone is destined for.
And we hope and we pray that if even if it's not us, who are going to do great things, at the very least we can facilitate. We can be the means of someone coming to Islam and finding their destiny of doing great things. Be the light Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that was said and heard. So Hannah Langham de subhanak along the Hambrick Nashville in
