00:00:23--> 00:00:28

hamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah well Allah Allah He will be

00:00:29--> 00:01:16

continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a sirata number via the prophetic biography. In the previous session we talked about the Islam of Ramadan Pavarotti Allahu taala, on who the conversion story of Omar bin Khattab Rue de la mano, may Allah be pleased with him? Towards the end of the story I mentioned about how some of the virtues of Amara, the Allahu anhu from the statement of Abdullah bin Massoud running a lot more on who was there to witness the entire ordeal and the entire sequence of events. He was able to witness and experience the situation of the Muslims before Ahmadiyya laquanda accepted Islam and what the change is in the

00:01:16--> 00:01:33

culture of MCI and how the scene changed by virtue of the conversion of Hamza bin Abdul muttalib and honorable Katara de Allah. I knew that when these two giants hums in Amara, the Allahu anhu Ma, when they came to Islam, how it strategically it changed the position of the Muslims.

00:01:34--> 00:02:12

I mentioned towards the end of that, again, Abdullah bin Massoud says that we were not able to in congregation publicly go and pray at the Kaaba at the harem without being attacked before on murdering a loved one who accepted Islam. And Hamza Radhika laguan are the Allahu anhu basically became the bodyguards, they would stand on either end of the Muslims as they prayed, and nobody dared attack them at that time. But it was actually a matter of the long one who insisted on this. He insisted that they go and they pray publicly. And I mentioned that towards the end of it, I wanted to kind of start from there.

00:02:13--> 00:02:56

I know at a certain personality, he had a certain perspective. And a lot of times when we read about the Allahu anhu, and how he would talk to the prophets a lot, he said, um, and how he would insist on certain things, a lot of times, especially due to the storytelling factor, it can almost seem like he's somewhat defiant or insistent when that wasn't the case at all. This was an intimate conversation between the teacher and the students, between the Prophet and his follower. And between an older like someone who has an older father or older brother type figure, and a younger brother or son like figure. And this was a conversation that they had in many times relationships are very

00:02:56--> 00:03:38

unique, and personalities are very unique. And the prophets, a lot of them dealt with each person independently, individually, according to their personality, and so on. What about a loved one who by nature was just one who had voice, he needed to talk through his frustrations, he had to basically kind of what we say think out loud, a lot man who was one of those types of people. So when he goes to the prophets a lot, he's him and this was a type of a conversation that would reoccur between Allah, may Allah be pleased with him and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this conversation would occur with them many, many times throughout the rest of this era. So I'm the

00:03:38--> 00:03:42

Allahu anhu says that the prophets are loving him that don't we believe in the truth?

00:03:43--> 00:03:46

And the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam affirms, he says, Yes, we do.

00:03:48--> 00:03:57

And he again asked the prophets a lot. He said that what they believe in, isn't it wrong? And the profits alliance in my firms he goes, yes, what they believe is wrong.

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

Don't we have a law on our side? And the prophets allottee? Some says yes, most definitely we do.

00:04:06--> 00:04:44

Then Amara de la Manu basically appeals he says, a messenger of Allah, what prevents us from then going and praying publicly and doing what we have to do? So the prophets a lot, he said, I'm actually concurs and he says, You know, I felt that the time is also right. I feel it is also appropriate now. But you have to understand one thing was the prophets a lot of these I'm not willing to do so before will either be la familia, Allah May Allah protect us all. But did the prophets a lot of peace and lack courage, some way somehow before a lot of presented in these terms are made his protection possible? Absolutely not. But you also have to understand that the prophets

00:04:44--> 00:04:50

a lot of them also put a certain burden of belief on the followers on the oma themselves.

00:04:51--> 00:05:00

That a certain we are also given a certain amount of responsibility. The lesson that we learned from this is that the deen of Allah is the deen of Allah the Quran is applied.

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

Under profit is the profit. And all of that is there and all of it is true. It's the truth, as they say.

00:05:06--> 00:05:09

But it also comes back on us, what are we willing to do?

00:05:11--> 00:05:13

What what what? How far are we willing to go?

00:05:15--> 00:06:02

What are we willing to bring to the table. And the outcome will be the combination of that truth, that undeniable, unreviewable truth that is Islam, coupled with our own willingness, and our own investment within that truth. And the combination of those two things are what you see as the manifestation of the oma. So the oma is a combination of both things and the status of the oma the condition. A lot of times people like to ask the question, what we look what's going on with you today? globally, look, what's going on with your ma? Is that somehow an indictment of Islam or the truth of Islam? If this was the truth, then Wouldn't it all just fall into place? It's a combination

00:06:02--> 00:06:04

of two things, it's us plus that truth.

00:06:05--> 00:06:12

Otherwise, that truth is, it's the truth, it'll remain in the text, it will be preserved as a truth as long as Allah wills,

00:06:13--> 00:06:27

but it's us and what we're willing to bring to the table, and what type of investment we're willing to make. One of the interesting things about the revelation of the Quran, and the tone of the revelation of the Quran, that the scholars of the Quran actually present to us

00:06:28--> 00:07:13

is that this is a principle of fundamental principle of the tafsir the explanation of the kuranda wherever Allah speaks in the he addresses human beings are the believers in the masculine, he's actually addressing everyone, universally men and women, everyone is being addressed. And that's by virtue of the simple fact linguistically speaking, that the masculine gender is actually the universal gender. So when Allah addresses the believers or mankind in the masculine Yeah, you're Latina, amanu volcanica, non GMO meaning so Allah subhanaw taala is actually addressing men and women that's a that's an agreed upon fundamental undeniable principle of interpreting doctor on a

00:07:13--> 00:07:25

given but nevertheless we do find that some instances some places a law specifically a law specifically mentions men and women

00:07:26--> 00:08:12

in Elmo samina well Muslim as well Mina one more minute, some places Okay, you can, you can contribute it to the fact you can attribute it to the fact that those are places where women are of special focus surah number 66 surah Tarim women are of special focus there. Okay, so let's move to Hannah. Women are of special focus. They're similar to Lisa women are special focus. So to the Azov women are a special focus there, because those discourses in those passages are addressing women female related issues specifically. So that's why Allah specifically calls on them, and mentions them. But there are other places in the Quran where that's not the case is so the universal address,

00:08:12--> 00:08:49

and allies addressing both men and women. So what's the explanation of that? And the scholars actually explained that those verses were revealed after a certain incident? And that incident was that the women of the of the Sahaba, the believing women of that time, actually come to the prophets a lot of the sentiment is that your messenger of Allah, why doesn't Allah specifically uniquely mentioned us and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam explain to them that know when Allah says, Yeah, you are livina Amma know that is addressing you as well. But they said O Messenger of Allah, we would like for a lot to specifically address us as well.

00:08:50--> 00:09:04

Call on us as well make demands enough make demands of us specifically. And the scholars explained that from that point on, when verses were revealed, Allah subhanaw taala called on the believing men and believing women.

00:09:05--> 00:09:29

And so it's a combination of two things. And so the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim, always was willing, and that's why it's documented into Sierra and I mentioned it here a number of times, that the prophets allowed him all throughout this beginning, first five years of preaching and teaching and Prophethood and the Buddha, the prophets, a lot of whom had been going and praying at the Kaaba. He'd been praying there.

00:09:30--> 00:09:51

But as far as the believers were concerned, he was going to let them step up when they were ready to actually take that step. And no matter what the loved one who approach the prophets, a lot of the sentiments that are messenger of Allah, I feel it's time I feel it's like something we got to do. And the prophets allottee some scans, the faces of the believers there in the house have

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

been a lot of fun. He scans their faces, and he sees that all of them are also willing. They're all of them are

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

are finding courage at this moment. And the prophets, Allah says yes, let's go and do it.

00:10:06--> 00:10:07

And so that day came

00:10:09--> 00:10:50

when the prophets love the symbol goes out with the believers, hums in honor of the loved one on either side. And they marched into the huddle into the, to the Kaaba. And they stand up there and they pray in congregation. And everybody watches on and looks on, unable to do anything. And some of the narrations mentioned that some of the more again, on the disbelieving side on the opposition side, some of the more vocal ones, the more the more outspoken ones like Abu Jamal, and then that they were like, how can we let them do this? How is this even possible? Where did the well Who told these people they would they had licensed to do this? But they were restrained by their also the

00:10:50--> 00:10:57

rest of their company, and their following they were restrained by them, then I'll leave this be. This isn't a word of fight worth picking.

00:10:58--> 00:11:16

And so this was a major statement. But what this also did was the leadership of mcca got together. And it's mentioned in narrations that they had a meeting. They basically called in emergency council board meeting.

00:11:17--> 00:11:28

And they said, Everybody needs to come everybody who's anybody in Makkah needs to be here. And so it's mentioned in narrations that autobuy and shaybah, the sons of Robbie

00:11:29--> 00:11:32

Abu sufian Was there another Hadith.

00:11:33--> 00:12:14

Some of the other more notable ones that we've actually even talked about alwaleed bin al mahira was there Abu Jihad was there. Abdullah bin Beatlemania, who's an interesting character. We'll talk a little bit more about him. He's actually the cousin of the prophets, a lot of them, but he's a cousin by the paternal side. He was basically the son of one of the prophets a lot. He sums ons from his father's side. So his father's sister son. So one of his father's older sisters, one of her eldest sons, was Abdullah bin a Beatlemania. And he was also in somewhat of a position of leadership in Makkah, by virtue of being from that same family

00:12:15--> 00:12:40

allows been why it was there may have been one of the best friend of Abu Jamal was also there. And a few others have the same stature and rank, politically, economically, socially speaking in Mecca, in Croatia, the time they all got together. So basically, the 1012 of the top dogs of Mecca, basically congregated together. And they said, What do we do now?

00:12:41--> 00:12:53

Because what we've done up until this point, obviously has worked. Their numbers keep increasing. He sent a bunch of them off to Africa, we chase after them when we came back with our tails between our legs.

00:12:54--> 00:13:33

And in spite of him shipping off close to 100 people over to Africa, his numbers here are still increasing. So not there's 100 of them there. And there's 100 of them here. And then on top of that, aside from the early, more respected people in Mecca, like very, you know, respected people, socially elite people, like Abu Bakar in a drama and been out in North Malou. I've found these very respectable people had gone over to his side. But now you have some, basically enforcers joining his ranks as well. Hamza bin Abdul muttalib, a great warrior of our tribe. I'm

00:13:35--> 00:13:46

one of the people who goes to represent the Quraysh in front of other tribes, and tribal like communes and things like that. He's the one who goes to represent the police. Why? Because he's

00:13:47--> 00:14:31

that strong, intimidating figure. He's the muscle of Quraysh. They're all on his side as well. Now, what do we do? We've tortured his followers, we've launched campaigns against them smear campaigns, where we try to defame him and say bad things about him. None of it is working. So what do we do? So they decide to actually go back to a strategy that they had tried previously, through the uncle of the prophets, Allah visa, and we've talked about it here, where they went to Ableton Live and they said come on reason with your nephew. And when the the prophets, a lot of them was summoned by his uncle Abu Talib, who he loved very dearly, the man who raised him love for him cared for him. And he

00:14:31--> 00:14:43

basically tried to say like, why are you causing problems? They're here yelling and screaming, like what's going on? Isn't there some peaceful way to work this out? And when the profits allowed him became very emotional and said, uncle, I'm doing what I have to do.

00:14:44--> 00:14:52

And the Profit System became very emotional like uncle I hope you're not giving up on me. Abu Talib said no, no, no, no, I'm with him. 100%.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

Then the other thing that they had explored that they had tried again through Abu Talib was let's make him an offer.

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

That's offering him leadership. Let's offer him some money. Let's offer a boot on the betrayed. Listen, we'll give you one of our youngest and best and brightest.

00:15:11--> 00:15:23

So you can mentor him and kind of, you know, you can groom him to be your successor, and you just handed Mohammed over to us. We've tried all these offers. But now, let's not do that. Let's just approach Mohammed directly.

00:15:24--> 00:15:28

And tell Mohammed, basically, this is hand him a blank cheque.

00:15:30--> 00:15:32

You tell us what you would like.

00:15:33--> 00:15:46

You tell us what you would like. And let's put something on the table that we have not put before. Let's offer to recognize his faith, his religion as a legitimate faith in religion.

00:15:47--> 00:15:49

Let's, let's put that on the table.

00:15:50--> 00:16:20

So they call the prophets a lot of the time and they say that the 12 biggest leaders of Macau are here together. And we'd like to talk to you send them a message after they consulted with each other. They basically said called Mohammed. When the prophets a lot of him was told that basically everyone who matters and courageous together, and they're calling for you, the prophets lie, some went very quickly because he was hopeful, he thought maybe they've seen the light, they're willing to believe. So the prophets a lot. He's from Russia, so it has meaning.

00:16:21--> 00:16:43

And they basically open by saying, and some of the narration say that the person who actually spoke was not the rule, Hadith. And there's another narration that says no, he said something very specific. But nonetheless, it's mentioned when narration is another organ. And Hadith was the one who spoke. And he said, Look here, Mohammed,

00:16:44--> 00:16:53

we've never had anyone in all the major tribes of Arabia, that has caused as much unrest as you have.

00:16:54--> 00:17:08

You've insulted our forefathers, you criticize our beliefs. You make, you know, you've you've defamed our gods or deities, you've completely made a mockery of our way of life.

00:17:09--> 00:17:10

And

00:17:12--> 00:17:29

everything that's happened between us all the misunderstandings, you are this whole reason and causing a we didn't cause any problems. We were all falling fine and dandy, everything was rolling just fine. Everybody was happy until you came along and decided to make all these problems. We're not sure what you want.

00:17:30--> 00:17:46

But, again, we are extending the same offer we've extended to you in the past. But this time we're extending it, we're basically willing to increase the terms. Number one will offer you money beyond what you can even imagine.

00:17:48--> 00:17:54

We will not just offer you a one time amount, we're basically willing to fix you a salary

00:17:55--> 00:18:08

will pay you till the till the end of your years, will declare you to be the head of the Council of operation Mecca, you'll be in charge, you're officially in charge.

00:18:09--> 00:18:10

And

00:18:11--> 00:18:15

we'll get basically put all of this on the table. You can have whatever you want.

00:18:17--> 00:18:22

The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam response to them, he goes, I don't want your money.

00:18:23--> 00:18:28

I don't want your position. I don't want your leadership. I don't want any of those things.

00:18:29--> 00:18:35

Allah has sent me with a message. He'd made me a messenger and he's given me a message the Quran.

00:18:37--> 00:18:38

I bring

00:18:39--> 00:19:02

this is what I present to you. My counteroffer is I offer you the Quran, I offer you Islam. You take this, if you take this and you believe in this, and you abide by this, then I'm here to tell you that you will reap the rewards and the blessings of Allah in this life and the next. And if you reject this,

00:19:03--> 00:19:25

then it's between you and Allah. And Allah will settle the matter between us. If you reject me and my offer and this belief, then I turn the matter over to a line Allah will decide our affairs. Allah will settle it. I'm not here to make any threats. I don't have any beef personally against you. But Allah will settle the matters. Allah will be the judge.

00:19:26--> 00:19:36

That was it. So now they basically kind of say, Okay, hold on. Let's let's come back to the table. Let's take a five minute recess. We'll come back to the table.

00:19:37--> 00:19:45

So they kind of, they pull over to the corner, they talk to each other and they're like, Alright, you know, the wild card that we talked about

00:19:46--> 00:19:49

the wild card, we got to put that on the table now.

00:19:50--> 00:19:53

It's time for it to pull out the big guns.

00:19:54--> 00:19:57

So they come back to the table and they tell the profits a lot. He said them

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

We know that

00:20:02--> 00:20:06

you know you are insisting on either we believe, or we don't believe

00:20:07--> 00:20:34

that you're insisting that I'm not willing to take any other offer. I know I don't want your money, I don't want anything, you have a message and you insist on that message. Here's what we're willing to do. we'll recognize your message as a legitimate message. Before the prophets a lot more even we listening to this reading this could think that they're basically accepting you someday say, however, will recognize your religion as completely valid.

00:20:35--> 00:20:39

If you recognize our religion, our beliefs, that's completely valid.

00:20:41--> 00:20:44

And the way we're going to do this is one day

00:20:45--> 00:20:53

will be the day of your religion. And the next day will be the day for our religion. One day we worship your God.

00:20:54--> 00:21:07

We pray in your direction, we pray in your manner. And the next day, all of us together as a community. We worship and bow down in front of these idols. It's trade, equal trade, come on, equality.

00:21:08--> 00:21:29

You work with us, we'll work with you. Give us a little take a little seems fair, Allah subhanaw taala had already told the prophets Allah the center in Sultan, Allah. So number 68. And when I talked about this was the second revelation. What do you do the Hindu for you? Do you know?

00:21:30--> 00:22:11

What do lo did he know for you to him what they want more than anything else, no to them, if you would just be willing to bend it a little bit to give him a little bit, not bender given and whatnot, I'm not talking about some type of like personal issue, or money or finance or none of them. If you'd be willing to give to compromise on your beliefs, your fundamental your emaan your faith, what you believe in, if you'd be willing to give in just a little bit what they want more than anything else, is that if you're willing to give in just a little bit for you to No, they very willingly will give in a whole lot.

00:22:13--> 00:22:18

But they need you to bend just a little bit off the fact that Allah is one.

00:22:19--> 00:22:27

There is a life after death. The Quran is the word of Allah. Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, they just need you to give us a little bit, just a little

00:22:29--> 00:22:38

figurine. But Allah said, told the promises on well as to they're gonna laugh in my hand. But don't you dare ever do that though.

00:22:40--> 00:22:42

Don't listen, don't obey, don't follow, don't give in.

00:22:43--> 00:22:49

No matter how strategic it might seem, there are some things that we can't compromise on.

00:22:50--> 00:22:57

There are some things and this is very relevant to us. Because we're, we deal with this we're a minority,

00:22:58--> 00:23:01

surrounded by a majority that does not believe in what we believe in.

00:23:03--> 00:23:06

But in terms of our, our etiquette,

00:23:08--> 00:23:52

our cooperation in terms of social issues, morality, ethics, we're more than willing to work and cooperate with people. But at the end of the day, there is a line and the line is respectfully, we see the prophets of love isn't wasn't disrespectful. They're sitting there singing, you're trouble, you've caused problems. You've done this, you've done this, you've done this, the prophets are lovely, some says this is what I believe. If you accept it, the blessing and the reward of Allah, if you don't accept it, worldly wise in this world, that is your choice. But God is the judge. And then leave it at that. But there is that line. And the same thing, it's just we have to understand the

00:23:52--> 00:23:56

same thing with us today. I believe when I believe

00:23:57--> 00:24:09

we believe in Allah, we believe in Muhammad Rasul Allah, we believe in the Quran key tabula, we believe in standing before a long day of judgment. And that is what we believe.

00:24:10--> 00:24:11

And there is no compromise in terms of that.

00:24:13--> 00:24:25

And that's what so now they make this offering to the prophets allottee Center. Again, in what's very interesting is this, this something very interesting, you'll see in today's lesson, the prophets, a lot of them again says there is one Allah,

00:24:26--> 00:24:27

I am the messenger of Allah,

00:24:29--> 00:24:54

I received the book of Allah. And we all have to be resurrected and stand before a law. And that is my message. If you accept that, and you believe that, then there's reward and blessing for you in this life and in the Hereafter. If you reject that, and you refuse that, or you compromise that in any way, shape or form, like how you're saying, then God will be the judge. Allah will settle the matter.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

And he says that he just he's quite

00:25:01--> 00:25:02

So then they,

00:25:03--> 00:25:10

by this time, the narration mentions in his heart who relates this in a lot of detail. He says that

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

basically, chaos broke out in the meeting,

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

because they started to get frustrated.

00:25:19--> 00:25:27

And so now they start speaking out of turn. Now their whole strategy is kind of falling apart. And they're frustrating. their frustration is starting to show.

00:25:28--> 00:25:30

So one of them says

00:25:31--> 00:25:36

that, okay, okay, I see how it is.

00:25:37--> 00:26:00

If that's the case, you're not willing to budge at all. Then you see how it is over here. Life is hard. We live in the desert, we live in the middle of a bunch of mountains, water is hard to come by. Not a lot of vegetation grows here. Okay, if you're so right, and everything you believe, isn't the truth. There, why don't you pray to your Lord, that he would move these mountains away from here

00:26:02--> 00:26:22

that he would make it rain, everything would be green and lush and beautiful. There'll be rivers flowing through here like they flow in Iraq and Syria, because the the the operational businessman, he's traveled out to blood, Russia, and Iraq, and they would see how rivers were flowing there and greenery and vegetation was plentiful. Why don't you ask God to make our lands like that?

00:26:23--> 00:26:30

You don't want to why don't you tell because will benefit from that you'll benefit from that your followers will benefit from that. And if all of that happens, I will believe in you.

00:26:32--> 00:26:37

Again, the prophets, Allah He said, um, says, I understand that you're getting kind of frustrated here.

00:26:39--> 00:26:59

But this is my message. I believe in Allah. There is one Allah, the Quran, I am the messenger of Allah, we have to stand an answer to a law, if you believe blessing and rewarding this life, and the next, if you don't, the rest is in solid hands.

00:27:00--> 00:27:06

One of them. Now another one speaks up getting more emotional. He says that.

00:27:07--> 00:27:48

Why don't you then also pray to your God if you're so right, and all of this is the truth. Pray to your God to raise up our forefathers to testify in RBF. And he specifically mentioned school saving keylab, who is like the great great great grandfather of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He says, Why don't you ask him to resurrect him? Because we'll Sabin keylab was one of the ones who basically established Quraysh as a power within Arabia. He was one of the ones who was instrumental in establishing relations of power in Arabia. And he was actually he was able to do that because of his reputation amongst the P, the Arab, the people of Arabia, he was known as someone who is very

00:27:48--> 00:28:24

truthful, very honest, very moral, very ethical, and by virtue of it, but basically, because of his virtue, and his virtue, his reputation amongst his people, he was able to establish colorations of power in Arabia. So that's why they mentioned his name. And some of the other narrations mentioned that even kind of taunted the profits a lot easier than if you were anything like your forefathers were saving, Caleb, you wouldn't be doing this. But what in that moment, in that in that moment, where they became frustrated and emotional, what they failed to understand was, before the prophets, Allah Nizam preached his message, he would often be likened to his grandfather, Abdulmutallab, and

00:28:24--> 00:28:33

he was often likened to his great great grandfather for saving keylab. Why? Because the qualities of the prophets Allah lism that he was known by were what a sodic.

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

The Prophet sallahu was known as being dependable, reliable, truthful, and was known as being somebody who was extremely trustworthy.

00:28:42--> 00:29:25

So again, in that emotional moment, they're basically trying to emotionally blackmail the prophets allows him but doesn't even make sense. Because the prophets a lot of them is the most truthful amongst them. And so he does resemble his Greg briger grandfather, Kasabian, Caleb and his character and from here now, they just started becoming just flat out unreasonable. One of them started to say that if this is the truth, and Allah mentions is in the Quran, in Surah, Tila and fun I am number 32. with Allah in Ghana, however, will happen in our Indic for Clara Elena Hey Jarrah, tamina sama away Tina via either I believe

00:29:26--> 00:29:43

that God they started looking up at the sky, one of them looks up at the sky during this meeting and says God, Allah, this god that Mohammed calls to Allah, that if what this man says is the truth, then later rain down stones from the sky, or bring some great punishment down on us for not believing.

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

So they started blast filming and speaking in this way, one of them started to say that will only believe in you. If you can go up to the sky, come back down with God himself with Allah himself and a whole army of angels then will believe in you

00:30:00--> 00:30:17

One of them said that no, we'll never believe in you. One of them started to scream No, these angels. They are the daughters of God. And we believe we pray, we worship these angels who are the daughters of God. One of them started to say that none of them know you're just a big liar. You keep quoting this, man

00:30:18--> 00:30:25

Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, you keep quoting this, man, this man is a man from yamamah.

00:30:26--> 00:30:34

This is a man from Northern Arabia by a place called Yo Mama, and you went there and you bring all these words from this man called the rock man.

00:30:35--> 00:30:50

And they just started lashing out and speaking just completely irrationally. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was sitting there quietly, he'd responded three, four times very calmly, very respectfully, with integrity.

00:30:51--> 00:30:57

But he started to realize that this is pointless. They're just lashing out now.

00:30:59--> 00:31:23

So the prophets, a lot of them said, I understand. You've set what you have to say. I've said what I have to say. There's really not much else for us to talk about right now right here. So I'm going to get going. Thank you very much for your time. I have to go. And the narration says the prophets a lot of whom got up and respectfully exited, started to leave his cousin who was there in the meeting, Abdullah bin Abdul Mejia

00:31:24--> 00:32:07

came up to the Prophet ceylonese and walked out with him like I'm gonna go walk him out. And he came up and started walking with the profits a lot of the profits a lot even thought, you know, some family members, like Hamza. I live in Abu Talib. It said, bye bye This time. It's also mentioned in some narrations that by this time, even one or two of his audience had believed in him, but we're keeping their emails private and secret. Our bass, radi Allahu anhu, the uncle of the problem hadn't believed yet. But the narrations mentioned that he was still contemplating it, he was thinking about it. I thought it was of course, fully supporting it hadn't believed but was fully supporting. So the

00:32:07--> 00:32:19

profits are some figured maybe, you know, he's, something's clicked. So he starts walking with the profits a lot. He kind of puts an arm around the shoulder, but has a completely different message.

00:32:20--> 00:32:21

He said Mohammed,

00:32:22--> 00:32:27

he said your people have made some very good offers to you.

00:32:28--> 00:32:33

They've made some very reasonable offers. But you keep refusing. You keep refusing.

00:32:34--> 00:32:37

They asked you very reasonably,

00:32:38--> 00:32:41

that if you don't, if you're not willing to compromise,

00:32:42--> 00:32:51

then do something, establish something show something that clearly establishes the fact that you're right and they're wrong.

00:32:52--> 00:32:58

That's all they're asking for. But you say oh, I leave it to God, I leave it to.

00:32:59--> 00:33:01

You even refused.

00:33:02--> 00:33:13

Things that they were willing to offer you that I would have only established you further, that could have helped you propagate your religion if that's what you wanted. But again, you said no.

00:33:14--> 00:33:15

What Allah has given me is enough.

00:33:17--> 00:33:21

You're being very stubborn here. You're being very unreasonable here.

00:33:22--> 00:33:41

You can see how when, when when a person's heart is corrupted, when a person's intentions are not straight, something so irrational, like what they were saying something so ridiculous and nonsensical, like their demands of the prophets, Allah de sola can seem so rational to the person himself.

00:33:43--> 00:33:45

That he says now he says, oh, Muhammad,

00:33:46--> 00:33:54

by God, by Allah, I will never believe in you. I will never accept what you have to say.

00:33:56--> 00:34:00

You need to also understand that you don't want to compromise. Well, guess what? I don't want to compromise.

00:34:02--> 00:34:23

I'll never believe in you. You could bring a ladder that goes all the way up to the sky. And in front of my very eyes, you could climb all the way up to the sky. And you could come back down with four angels, all testifying that what you say is the truth, but even then I will not believe in you. This is a fight now, and we're gonna fight it out.

00:34:24--> 00:34:30

The Prophet of Allah sallallahu sallam, very quietly, respectfully, walked off.

00:34:31--> 00:34:39

And so now this was basically fallacious. last attempt to try to rationalize the situation.

00:34:41--> 00:35:00

What they were worried about now was the fact that look, Muhammad, the number of followers continues to grow. prominent people continue to join his ranks. We keep making offer enough offer after offer basically humiliating

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

ourselves, not standing for anything at this point, be willing to compromise even what we claim to at least believe in.

00:35:09--> 00:35:18

But Muhammad is unwavering in his convictions and his beliefs. And this is even more inspiring, and more convincing to the people who are willing to listen to him.

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

What do we do?

00:35:22--> 00:35:50

By the time that meeting concluded, Abu Jamal who was there the entire time, of course, not happy with all these proceedings, because Abu Jamal was Abu Dhabi. We've talked about Abu Jamal before. Abu Jamal only knew one way how to handle these things. And that's why he's called a Buddha. He says, just you, you you, basically are handling, you're conducting yourself with some amount of dignity and honor and respect. You have to be ignorant in your approach.

00:35:52--> 00:35:54

And so our Buddha tells them, he says,

00:35:56--> 00:36:10

You did you you did what you wanted to do. I wasn't on board with it. But I sat here quietly, I shut my mouth. I didn't lash out, because you said give you a chance and give your strategy a chance. What didn't get you didn't get you anything? So why don't we do this now?

00:36:11--> 00:36:27

Why don't we try my strategy? I need one thing from you. I need all of you to swear here to me right now, that you guarantee to me, and you promise me your full support and your full protection.

00:36:30--> 00:36:41

And they said, Well, what are you talking about doing? He says look, Muhammad every single day Salallahu alaihe. Salam, every single day, he comes to the hatami comes to the carbon he prays there

00:36:42--> 00:36:45

in our faces, rubs it on our faces, he comes and prays every day.

00:36:46--> 00:36:49

And when he prays, he bows down on the ground.

00:36:50--> 00:36:54

Tomorrow when he comes into play, I'm gonna get a big rock and I'm basically going to smash his head and kill it.

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

End of story.

00:36:59--> 00:37:04

I'm gonna do that. But the reason why we haven't done that yet, is Ben.

00:37:07--> 00:37:19

Ben who has Hashem the family of the prophets, Allah will basically come after whoever harms him as retribution Abu Talib as guaranteed as much.

00:37:21--> 00:37:35

But you guys here are influential and powerful enough to where if you stand with me, we might be risking a little bit of civil unrest, a little small scale Civil War amongst Quraysh. But if all of you stand with me,

00:37:36--> 00:37:45

then most of his family members might even be hesitant to take up arms against all of us, and the few that are willing to really easily defeat them.

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

That's all I need you to do stand with me.

00:37:50--> 00:37:57

And before they all left that meeting, they were so angry and frustrated that they all said we're with you. You do what you got to do.

00:37:58--> 00:38:01

So then our agent mentions even Shamu Venus Hawk,

00:38:02--> 00:38:41

the classical historians, scholars of this era, they mentioned the next day when the prophets Allah and this is gonna sound very similar to the story of Eros, he could certainly Rashi which I mentioned a few sessions ago, that the next day when the prophets Allah is him, came in in the morning, came to pray at the huddle met the Kaaba. And the prophet SAW someone down Institute, ordination mentioned that from even before when the prophets a lot of them came in Abuja, Hall went, found the biggest rock that he could find, came and put it down next to him and sat down. When the prophets Elijah walked in, he kind of looked over made eye contact with the rest of everybody else

00:38:41--> 00:38:50

who was there and that meaning to counsel, the High Council of Quraysh of Makkah, he made eye contact with all of them, all of them cannot get back at him and kind of sad in their places.

00:38:52--> 00:39:07

And then as soon as the prophets allowed him down Institute, Abuja picked up the rock, walked over to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he held the rock up above his head, and was about to step forward and bring it smashing down on the head of the prophets a lot.

00:39:09--> 00:39:10

And he just went pale.

00:39:12--> 00:39:25

And his knees started to shake and he pulled the rock back down and just walked backwards from there. Not even turn around, you walk backwards from there, and he sat down and put the rock back down next to me just kind of sat down and look down.

00:39:26--> 00:39:29

Now making eye contact with anyone

00:39:30--> 00:39:34

and everyone's just sitting there watching this whole scene, wondering what has happened

00:39:36--> 00:39:41

in the profits or losses and finishes Sala and the profits or losses and walked out of the huddle.

00:39:42--> 00:39:49

They go up to Abuja later and they said, What just happened? chickened out.

00:39:50--> 00:39:53

He says I swear by a lot when Rosa

00:39:54--> 00:39:57

I swear by the two biggest idols that we worship.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

I was ready

00:40:00--> 00:40:15

I was there, I was willing, and I walked up. And I saw a huge camel. And he actually describes the camel that he said it was it almost It was so huge and so ferocious looking. It was more like a demon than a camel.

00:40:17--> 00:40:18

It had sharp teeth.

00:40:20--> 00:40:41

And as soon as I walked up to Mohammed and I looked up, it's like it came out of nowhere, like he came out of the [???] out of the shade of the huddle out of the shade of the Kaaba. It's like it just came out of there, and just kept growing until it was like towering over me. And it was looking down at me with angry eyes, and it opened its mouth, and just looked down at me.

00:40:42--> 00:40:57

And when I looked into its eyes, it was just filled with fear. And I froze, and I stepped away from there. And as I continued to retreat, pull away from there, the camel continued to kind of retreat back to wherever it originated from.

00:40:59--> 00:41:06

Until I came in, I sat down back in my place, and I put the rug down. And I just looked down because I couldn't look at that camel anymore, because it was too terrifying.

00:41:09--> 00:41:14

And everybody abou JAL sang them the story. And while he's telling the story, everybody's just looking at each other. like

00:41:17--> 00:41:42

nobody else had the courage to actually take that type of those type of drastic steps nobody else did. Nobody else was ignorant or stupid enough to do that. First of all, try to kill Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam abou john was the only one so it's not like somebody else was gonna say, forget him. He's obviously lost his marbles. I'll do it. Nobody else was stupid enough. So to begin with, everyone was kind of like, well, that kind of explains a lot.

00:41:43--> 00:41:47

He's insane. That's why he was willing to kill Muhammad.

00:41:48--> 00:41:55

But unfortunately, he can't control his own insanity. Now there's demon camels walking around the Kaaba, apparently.

00:41:58--> 00:42:07

The Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam was brought news later on, messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Do you know they tried to kill you today?

00:42:09--> 00:42:10

He said, Really? He

00:42:11--> 00:42:16

said, Who is that a Buddha had a big ol rock.

00:42:17--> 00:42:18

And he was willing.

00:42:19--> 00:42:21

And he came and his story is

00:42:22--> 00:42:33

everyone's talking about it. Apparently His story is that he basically walked up with this big rock was willing to smash your head and then he says he saw some like huge demon camel. That scared him away.

00:42:35--> 00:42:41

The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam smiled and said that was God.

00:42:43--> 00:42:44

I go and I pray Would you believe?

00:42:46--> 00:43:04

I go there every day. And I pray Would you believe on insulin? That's what the prophets said. I have two ministers in the heavens and two ministers on the earth like I have to, you know was yours like two deputies in the heavens and two deputies on the earth. In the heavens. It is gibreel and Mika Elan on the earth it is Abu Bakar Rama

00:43:06--> 00:43:29

so debris the prophecies and referred to gibreel Ali Salaam as his buddy as his friend. Towards the end of the days of the prophets a lot. He said I'm the prophets of someone who would recite the Quran every single like Moraga, you know father of the Quran, they recite the Quran to one another. The prophets Allah would recite the Quran to jabril Ali Salam and you believe Alisha would recite it back to the prophets Allah the center. So he was his buddy.

00:43:30--> 00:43:33

He was like his prayer buddy, he's put on buddy.

00:43:34--> 00:43:40

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that was a dream. He was praying with me. But gibreel must have saw

00:43:41--> 00:43:52

Abuja trying to pull some stupid stuff. And so God Valley Salaam decided to teach him a little bit of a lesson and turned into a big demon Campbell scared him away.

00:43:54--> 00:43:59

Subhana Allah. And so that basically

00:44:00--> 00:44:15

was the that basically was the, you know, the aftermath of the acceptance of Islam by Omar radi Allahu anhu and the courageous step by all the believers to go out there and pray in public in congregation at the Kaaba.

00:44:17--> 00:44:59

And what transpired after this, what happened after this because you see now the operations basically gathered back together, reassess their strategy and their approach. They tried to make not one but multiple offers to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and then they basically, or at least one of them, Abuja, hell, but the rest of them are also culpable in this, the rest of them are willing to protect him and support him. That basically they even attempted an assassination of the prophets, a lot of them and everything failed. And what happened after this was basically one of the one of the major events of this year of the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

And that was basically the boycott.

00:45:04--> 00:45:36

The boycott that people have Mercado de Qureshi enacted against the profits a lot. He said him, his family, his followers and his supporters. And that's basically what we'll be talking about in the coming sessions. May Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the last thing I wanted to mention, I almost forgot, after this incident, where they actually were they made all these offers in the profits, a lot of them rejected all these offers. And then a Buddha attempted attempted assassination, and Allah subhanaw taala protected the Prophet sallallahu Sallam from this assassination attempt.

00:45:38--> 00:45:55

The scholars mentioned that Allah subhanaw taala revealed an eye of the Quran to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam from Sultan Merida is number 67. Yeah, you heard Rasool Bell the mountain Zilla Aleikum Arabic

00:45:56--> 00:46:09

Yeah, you are soon I surah number five. I am number 67. Yeah, you are Rasulo messenger. ballin, mountains in a lake a mineral big conveyed, deliver to its full extent,

00:46:10--> 00:46:20

in its entirety, with total clarification, deliver what has been sent down to you from your Lord,

00:46:21--> 00:46:22

what file

00:46:23--> 00:46:48

because if you do not do everything and anything within your capacity, if you don't do everything that you're capable of, in order to deliver this message from our beloved Teddy salata, then you have not delivered the message. If you don't avail all your resources or opportunities, if you don't do whatever it is that you are capable of doing in order to deliver this message, then guess what, at the end of the day, you have not delivered the message.

00:46:50--> 00:46:53

Well, La Jolla similkameen in us

00:46:55--> 00:46:57

and as far as repercussions are concerned,

00:46:58--> 00:47:27

as far as the fear of someone trying to kill you or attack you, or take drastic measures against you is concerned. While La Jolla similkameen anass a law will protect you from people. And what's very beautiful about the wording of desire as well. is Allah subhanaw taala did not say what law who Yeah, yes, you do come in and as Allah will protect you is that allow Allahu yasunaga Allah is smart in the Arabic language means to completely protect from anything.

00:47:28--> 00:47:57

And everything alone will completely totally protect you from the people. That means any harm that would come to the profits allottees, or any harm that did come to the profits or loss was not those people harming him, that was only for the further development of the profits along the center. That was for the development of the eemaan and the tuttavia. And the the continued spiritual progress of the believers. But as far as these people are concerned, Allah will completely protect you from the people.

00:47:58--> 00:48:00

Well, luckily out similkameen and US

00:48:01--> 00:48:24

will love who they are. Luckily I did on my body mean, Allah does not guide people who do wrong, who are oppressed who cracked transgress, who crossed the line, who crossed the limit. But as far as you're concerned, you do what you got to do. Bulma Angelica Moravec and that's basically what we have to understand what we have to learn from this. We have an A man of faith, a system of beliefs, a core of beliefs that we live by.

00:48:25--> 00:48:36

And we have to believe them. And we have to live according to that. And we have to share that with humanity. Of course, for us today, there's a lot of learning we have to do.

00:48:38--> 00:48:54

Today, there's also the other side of the problem, where we might be fully convinced of something that's actually not in line with Islam, that contradicts the Quran. We see that with crazy people in the world today, who claim Islam who go around harming innocent people

00:48:55--> 00:49:12

committing acts of aggression and violence against innocent civilians. Claiming that to be an act of Islam, we obviously know That's incorrect. I'm not talking about that. But I am also saying that there is the other extreme a lot of times where we might live in fear of basic things such as believing in a lot.

00:49:15--> 00:49:16

And believing in Mohammed Rasul Allah,

00:49:18--> 00:49:20

and living our lives according to the Quran

00:49:21--> 00:49:23

and living by the values that we believe in.

00:49:25--> 00:49:30

And we also have to understand that if that in and of itself, when it comes to like Islamophobia.

00:49:31--> 00:49:53

We're were they if they had their way, we wouldn't even be Muslim, we would renounce our Islam altogether, that in the face of Islamophobia, in the face of people who just want us to not even be Muslim anymore, that in the face of that type of, you know, challenge, we have to be as firm as we humanly possibly can.

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

We have to stick by what we believe in. We have to stand up for what we believe in and we have to

00:50:00--> 00:50:34

Understand that at the end of the day we will put our trust and our faith in our reliance up in the last panel with Allah, that Allah will protect us as he protected the profits a lot, so long as he protected the early believers. As he protected the oma for 1400 years. Allah subhanaw taala will continue to protect the oma as long as He wills as long as he sees fit. And we have to have our faith and our trust in that fact. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that was said and heard. So how to light you will be hum de subhanak Allahu Hambrick. Mashallah La ilaha illa Anta saphira Kanata willick
