So inshallah continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a skeleton of a Ouija. In the previous session we talked about or rather maybe over the last few sessions, we've talked about the kind of reaching of that fifth,

00:00:50--> 00:01:29

almost sixth year of prophethood, of the Buddha, and how, you know, the prophets a lot. He said, um, the Muslims, and even the Quraysh were kind of at this crossroads, where a lot of different options had been explored. The prophets a lot of the time had explored preaching and teaching the people of Makkah through various means, the Muslims themselves that explored a number of different options, and so much So as many of the Muslims leaving Mecca and moving out of Mecca. By now they had also experienced people like comes out of the Allahu anhu, on top of the Allahu anhu, accepting Islam and therefore granting the Muslims a little bit more strength and confidence. The Croatia also explored

00:01:30--> 00:02:10

a number of different options and different avenues in terms of whatever their intention or their purpose was. They had tried, you know, making offers to the prophets a lot. He said, I'm approaching Abu Talib directly, they tried, you know, reasoning with the prophets allottee salaam, they tried bribing the prophets, a lot of them. They even tried torturing the Muslims and even trying to attack and personally harmed the prophets a lot. He said them, but again, it's nothing was obviously working. In the previous session, then we talked about something very interesting. It's not mentioned very prominently within Basic Books of this era. But nevertheless, it is something that is

00:02:10--> 00:02:18

authentic, and something that is mentioned in the classical text in regards to the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and that is that there was a

00:02:20--> 00:02:57

a delegation from some of the Christian Arab tribes of the North that had come down and accepted Islam and gone back. And these were prominent people from their tribes in the past, he had received them, the phrase had met with them, and wanted to show some hospitality to them. And only for these people to eventually meet the prophets, a lot of them accept Islam. And we even talked about how Buddha had had a conversation with them, where he insulted them. After all of this, he insulted them and send them back with this bad taste in their mouth, in regards to Abuja and operation Mecca, that not only have we found the truth, and we accepted Islam, but on top of that, these people have

00:02:57--> 00:03:30

Makkah, the leaders of grace, they seem to be really terrible human beings, that they insulted us. They didn't show us any hospitality, and even the people within their myths, who have believed and accepted Islam. These people are very brutal with them and tortured them and oppress them and persecute them. So after all of this happened, again, abou Jehan and his cronies kind of went back, to congregate to gather and to kind of regroup and figure out a strategy going forward.

00:03:31--> 00:04:14

And the narration mentions that one of the resolutions that they came to, was that one of the things that mentioned Allah Missouri Rahim Allah which Allah mentions is an Imam will be happy, even his Sham many, many different urbanists have many different scholars of the Sierra relate this same narration. Allah Missouri Rahim Allah which Allah mentions, for my inner mushy kina estado Allah muslimeen, aka shut the Macondo that the machete King, the disbelievers of Quraysh, they basically resolved to become even more harsh and fierce in their opposition of Islam and in their oppression of the Muslims, more than they had ever been up to this point. And we've talked about we had a whole

00:04:14--> 00:04:39

session and throughout all the sessions, we've been kind of talking about how serious the persecution of these early Muslims was. So imagine if these people go back heartless people like Abu Jamal and Abu lahab basically resolved to become even more aggressive in their persecution, just try to imagine what that exactly means. What that precludes. And he said, Massimino Judah, was shut down a bola.

00:04:40--> 00:05:00

And so the Muslims suffered more than they had ever suffered before. So things were really really psychological things were really going south, here in Makkah now and then he talks about what Shema Quraysh FEMA Korea and yaku Rasul Allah is Allah Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah

00:05:01--> 00:05:21

So and they basically sat together in there kind of the we've talked about a kind of the High Council of mcca when they would sit and they would meet in the hot room at the Kaaba. They basically met there and very publicly openly, this was not a couple of people kind of conspiring in a dark little corner in the middle of the night

00:05:22--> 00:06:08

saying we need to, you know, we need to make, you know, some type of a covert, you know, assassination attempt, you know, and make it look like an accident. This wasn't a case like this. They publicly sitting sitting in the public forum, in broad daylight loudly with their voices raised, basically said, the only solution to this matter is to kill Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam that's it. We've been through everything else. We've explored everything else and nothing else will work. We have to kill the prophets a lot he sent him for LA mera Batali. Mohammed Al phone, Gemma urbani Abdullah, Amara whom Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ah, Shiva Amara whom

00:06:08--> 00:06:28

I am not oh man arado katella who, first Mr. Allah Danica Muslim omocha for whom for man or woman for Allah who have eaten for me to whom and for Allah who have eaten woman whom and for Allah who Eman And we are clean. And then he goes on to explain that Abu Talib gathered together but who Hashem

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

Abu Talib gathered together. But what didn't work even more specific than Hashem he gathered together Bunny, Abdul muttalib, basically, but no, I've been muttalib are the children and the grandchildren and even the great grandchildren of

00:06:43--> 00:07:13

the grandfather of the prophets. allottee. So, so he gathered basically, the more immediate family of the prophets, a lot of some older brothers, all the sisters, all the uncles, all the aunts, and cousins and nephews and nieces, he gathered this circle of the family. So he didn't even reach out to the broader branch of the family. But he didn't reach out to forage Obviously not. But he reached out to the more immediate, you know, families tree, if you will. And he reached out to them. And he basically said, They're going to kill Mohammed,

00:07:14--> 00:07:52

they're going to kill him. And we have to take some drastic measures. Now, if we don't want to see just full scale warfare in Mecca, we do not want to see our family, and our forefathers, and I've been looked on and disrespected in this way. And we all love Muhammad, some of you might disagree with him might not believe in what he has to say. But at the end of the day, being more immediate family, all of you have love for him. And if you don't want to see him dead, killed, murdered, assassinated, then we have to take some drastic measures, we have to take Mohammed, we have to surround him and protect him. And we have to go into the shear above

00:07:53--> 00:08:17

the Shama with all of this more immediate family of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. This was a section of the valley writes out right outside of Makkah, that was owned by the family that was basically I basically belonged, stopped and looked on him. So this little valley destruction of land belonged to him, it was a little bit right outside, it was almost like think of it in our terms here, like a ranch outside of the city.

00:08:18--> 00:08:59

So you drive out a little bit outside of the city. And then there's a ranch over there. There's some long big extended, you know, 3040 acres of property out there. So like many times a big family will kind of own a ranch like that, yeah, our family owns a ranch outside of outside of town. Similarly, they've owned this stretch of land the valley outside of Makkah. And Abu Talib is saying we have to take Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we have to basically move him over there. And we'll have to go over there to protect them and kind of make a stand and show some solidarity. But that's the only way to keep him alive. As the only way to avert this dis this just completely spiraling

00:08:59--> 00:09:03

down into a complete total tragedy, as the only course of action at this point.

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

And

00:09:07--> 00:09:46

fudge them out or why not Alec generation says that bunu Abdulmutallab basically were they agreed to this, they all realize that this is the only course of action here only reasonable course of action, Muslim omaka film and this is where it's interesting, both those amongst the more immediate family of nonprofits, a lot of these who had believed, but even those who didn't have not believed those who would have not accepted Islam, they were not Muslim. Those those family members also agreed to this. And were willing to put their support behind this course of action as well. For many human father who have eaten, some of them did it to simply protect the profits a lot, or to protect a

00:09:46--> 00:09:55

family honoring the dignity. And then there were others who did this out of emaan. They did this out of faith and belief in the Prophet Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

The narration goes on to mention that one

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

Push realize that the family had kind of rallied around the prophets a lot he sent them, and they were going to protect him. Dad kind of. So right here very first on we should I should point this out. One of the lessons here of this particular session, or this event from the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is that a lot of times we do know the version of the story. And it's actually a part of the story, which we'll talk about next. But we do know that the flourish put this agreement into place, socially boycotting, ostracizing, completely cutting off the Muslims, and those who are willing to protect the profits of Islam, from the family of the present, even if they were not

00:10:39--> 00:11:16

Muslim. So anyone who either believed followed or even supported, protected the prophet to love him before he decided to completely boycott those people. We do know that, but what we have to understand is that we have to see the wisdom of fear of who thought he was the one who actually he did not advocate, he did not want a boycott. That's not the case. But I thought it was the one to basically take the profits, a lot of them, take him out a little bit outside of Makkah, kind of stashed him away over there, in this valley in the seperated place, and to take some of the followers and family and supporters and basically go there and say, we're kind of backing away from

00:11:16--> 00:11:51

the action a little bit. We're gonna go here to keep everyone safe and sound. So this step was initiated by Todd, what and See, this is why it's very interesting. You see the wisdom in this. You see the wisdom in this operation publicly, are gathering in broad daylight publicly advocating with no regard now towards Abu Talib in the family of the prophets, allottee. Some even, I mean, of course, they were willing to harm the prophet to love him before this, but at the very least, and this respect, troubled Allah, they had a respect for the great leader of the Arabs and the operation Mecca. But they've gotten to the point where they don't even care about these things. They're

00:11:51--> 00:12:00

probably talking about killing the profits a lot in broad daylight of autonomy, recognizing this moment and saying things could go very bad right now.

00:12:01--> 00:12:51

And so Abu Dhabi basically retreats, and once a Quraysh are able to see that we underestimated Abu Talib and bunu Abdulmutallab, his loyalty to the prophets allies and we underestimated it. Now, the the operation basically in Abuja, and the rest of the Qureshi basically gathered together, and they say that looks like they're fully willing to protect him and support him. So they said, We can't go there and just have a massacre and a bloodbath, you know, kill all these people amongst whom are some of the leadership of women and children and everyone, we can't do that. So then what do we do? They said, it's my alma shikumen Quraysh fudge mero amerihome Elijah de su one, what are you by your

00:12:51--> 00:12:57

own while I add Hulu Tom Hata Salima Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ah,

00:12:59--> 00:13:11

they basically said that fine, we will sit here. And we will basically put an agreement together, we will create a pact, an agreement that we will all agree to,

00:13:13--> 00:13:51

we will all be party to this agreement that none of us will talk to them. None of us will sit with them. None of us will do business with them. None of us will go into their homes. And even some of the more detail some of the more details of the agreement were that none of our family members will marry any of their family members that we will completely socially cut them off and boycott them until and unless they hand over the profits a lot. He said I'm for for execution. You send me more docile ly salami, some of the cotton, they have to hand them over to us for execution.

00:13:52--> 00:14:00

If they're not willing to do that we're not interested in any other terms of agreement. If they're not willing to do that, then as far as we're concerned, they're dead to us.

00:14:01--> 00:14:05

And they said this is what we're going to smoke them out is what we're going to do with them.

00:14:06--> 00:14:53

And so this was the agreement that they had. Well Khattab woofie mcculley him sahifa tanwar houden wamalwa Thea lietuva lumen Bani Hashim, Abaddon salon, wha hoo, hoo, mahira photron hotta, usually mooloolah cutsem. And they basically even wrote down a physical written agreement. And in that agreement was written the fact that they will not negotiate these terms. These are non negotiable terms. There is no agreement, there is no negotiation, there is no middle ground. A meeting of the minds in the middle that we can come to That's it, we're done. It's this or that. And that's it. Well, that's gonna be it. For today, none of us will show any compassion and mercy towards them

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

until and unless they hand him over for execution. That's it. That's the only way out of this situation.

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

The narration goes on to tell us that Banu Hashim, or but one of the matale More precisely, ended up spending three years in the valley under the social boycott

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

and the narrations even mentioned

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

the narrations even mentioned that the conditions within that valley became so severe. And so trying and testing

00:15:25--> 00:15:25

that

00:15:28--> 00:15:30

the narration actually mentions about

00:15:32--> 00:16:22

hacia la bella Bella houfy min fitness jd shadid hotter gonna use Mariah sua to CBN him yet of avola Meanwhile, our Asian manager, hotter Korea Amato, charisma sobre como la Baraka, Hiya, Lisa Eva Tim, of alima that the narrations mentioned that eventually the suffering of these people boycotted because they had no means to earn any type of income or money, or even regularly received supplies of food, that eventually their situation became so dire that you could hear the babies, you could hear the children screaming and crying from the pangs of hunger. Some of the narrations which are not complete now are not mentioned in detail in the more authentic classical resources. So again,

00:16:22--> 00:17:01

there's some speculation about some of the more added details, explicit details maybe being something that was added from the angle of storytelling well LaHood Allah Allah Musab, however, at the same time, you can understand from what is being said here, even in the more classical authentic narrations that you could hear babies, you could hear children screaming and crying. even outside of that valley, the people who lived on the edge of the the outskirts of the city of Mecca used to relate hearing women and children crying and screaming, they used to hear people mourning their dead. From this valley, that many different dead many of these children that were there died due to

00:17:01--> 00:17:02

starvation.

00:17:03--> 00:17:32

Many different individuals died due to sickness. It was a very difficult time. And this lasted for three years. And eventually from hearing these screams and these cries from seeing the dead being buried from seeing the conditions and hearing the horror stories inside of this valley and what was going on with these people. The general sentiment in Makkah became one that was very sympathetic towards the Muslims and the supporters of Mohammed salatu salam in the valley of

00:17:34--> 00:18:15

that they the general sentiment on the street in Mecca, the more common folk were not okay with what was going on. They did not like what was going on, they could no longer tolerate what was going on. And they began to talk about this in their homes, in their personal gatherings on the street, you know, water cooler talk, they started to talk amongst themselves about how this this wretched vile agreement was the cause of people that they've known their whole lives, people that even cared for and loved going through such inhumane treatment, going through such serious suffering, that the general sentiment in Makkah started to also kind of turn on the leadership of Pradesh, and was very

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

anti this social boycott.

00:18:19--> 00:18:36

And on the other hand, at the same time, the Muslims, and particularly Abu Talib, who was very concerned about the well being and the protection of the prophets, allottee Saddam was also live three years of high alert.

00:18:37--> 00:19:16

He lived three years on high alert, because he knew the whole reason that he had taken this drastic step that apparently it seems somebody with a very surface level analysis would say, that was a huge misstep by him because it led it basically facilitated and set up the social boycott. But I thought it was a man of foresight, who understood his people and understood what was going on. And he knew people like Abu Jan, and Abu lahab, from personal interaction and dealing with them, that he could not put anything past these people that he had, if he had left things away that they were, there was nothing that would stop these people from creating a bloodbath inside of my car. And so I will talk

00:19:16--> 00:19:55

about taking this step. But he also lived for these three years of boycott with all the stress and witnessing the suffering of his own grandchildren, and these babies, and these children and these women who are family members to him, and he was responsible for them. He was custodians. He was a custodian of these people, caretaker of these people, that he, in spite of all of this stress that he was dealing with, he was still on high alert because he knew that the corporation had these had the intention to publicly assassinate the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And so the narrations talk about the fact that every night when the profits a lot of them would go to sleep, he would actually

00:19:55--> 00:20:00

make the profits a lot he sell them. Sometimes switch sleeping places with

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

himself with other family members. So even out in the valley if every family kind of had their own tent every day who would make the profits a lot of them switch the profits? A lot of these homes tent says today, me and my family will go stay in your tent in you and your family go stay in my tent that switch apartments

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

just to switch things up on them.

00:20:23--> 00:20:59

And so and then tomorrow, all right, that cousin Come on, you come stay in Mohammed, Stan, and Mohammed and his family are going to go stay in your tent. And he was continuing to switch this up every single day. Some narrations even mentioned that sometimes I thought it would be so nervous. Now some narration mentioned you would stay up all night long. Some of the narrations mentioned that he had actually fixed a rotation from the young men of that family from the family of Abu Talib, he had fixed the rotation that somebody would be up all night long, they had rotations, they have different turns, somebody would stay up all night long, just guarding everything and guarding

00:20:59--> 00:21:32

everyone, and particularly keeping an eye on the 10th that the prophets allow the symbols staying in. And some narrations mentioned that some nights I will tollywood come to the prophets a lot. He said him after he had already made him switch attended with someone else. He would still come to him at that time. And then in the middle of the night, tell him to switch with somebody else. And every couple of hours, you'd wake up the profits along the cinema and say you got a switch, you got a switch, you got a switch. He was so worried and so nervous about the protection of the profits allottee center.

00:21:33--> 00:21:54

And so this went on for a very, very long time. And the narrations basically mentioned that this went on for three years, that for three years they dealt with these very, very difficult trying testing circumstances. One other thing that should be mentioned here, which really won't come as much of a surprise.

00:21:55--> 00:22:01

But it's still mentioned explicitly in these narrations that Abu lahab

00:22:03--> 00:22:09

who was from the family of the prophets a lot he seldom he was his uncle, his father's older brother.

00:22:11--> 00:22:27

He had basically decided when this whole deal went down when all of this happened. Abu lahab said no I'm not with Abu Talib I'm not with the family. I'm not with all these people. And he went over to cooperation he said I am with you

00:22:28--> 00:22:35

that when this all happened generation says urbanists haka mentions his work Raja Abu lahab Minh Bani Hashim

00:22:37--> 00:22:38

favara home

00:22:40--> 00:22:56

waka Raja Abu lahab min bunny Hashem Illa Quraysh favara home and when this whole situation went down Abu lahab basically left Banu Hashim Talib went over to the operation said I am with you and I will help you all against them.

00:22:57--> 00:23:38

This was how Ebola basically fared. And the narration even mentions that he went to hinze been an ultra bobbin robbia, who is the daughter of an entrepreneur, a big major opponent of major opposition leader against Islam and against the prophets a lot. He's him, she was the daughter of this man, entrepreneur RBI. And she herself was very strong in our opposition against Islam. She eventually married Abu sufian and husband and wife were like this power couple that were both against Islam and the prophets, a lot of them. And she eventually would be the woman who would hire washy to assassinate the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu sometimes up on him in the Battle of

00:23:38--> 00:24:10

awkward. And eventually, even much later on after that, at the time of for to Makkah, she would actually accept us on and we'll talk more about that when we reached that point in this era, that Abu lahab went to his been entrepreneur VR, and basically said that, have you seen me and where my allegiances lie? You see, I'm with a Latin Rosa, I'm with the idols that we worship. And I've left my people. And I've left the people that oppose a lot in Rosa. She said, Yes.

00:24:11--> 00:24:18

Yes, we have seen we have noticed. And we have taken note of that fact that we will not forget that you have joined with us.

00:24:19--> 00:24:20

And

00:24:21--> 00:24:32

it said that Abu lahab You know, I think I've talked about it here earlier, but I've mentioned I think I recall loosely that I've talked about how obala have eventually died.

00:24:34--> 00:24:59

And just to kind of recap the way I will have eventually died. And you see some of the reason and the cause behind it, that this man had absolutely no loyalty, no decency, nothing. He literally sold out his own family and everyone because of his, you know, opposition not only towards the promise to them, but even because of his his cowardice. He completely sold out even his own family members. So that

00:25:00--> 00:25:50

narration mentions that eventually when Abu lahab died, he went to when eventually when Abu lahab died, he lost his mind, he became very senile, towards the end of his life. And after losing his mind and going senile, it also talks about how he suffered a stroke, and lost a lot of even physical bodily function. And it eventually talks about that even further after that, that his body began rotting away. And he became very diseased, and his body was completely rotting away. And he was in this condition in the shape before he passed away before he died. And his family members, because he was senile, he had dementia, he was paralyzed. And his physical body was physically rotting away and

00:25:50--> 00:25:57

blood and pus and Boyle's covering his entire body rashes covering his entire body, his own family basically kicked him out of the home.

00:25:58--> 00:26:32

And they built like a little shed outside away from the home, and they locked him away there in that shed. And at that point in time, they hired a couple of servants to basically look after him and to protect him. And that's how they basically took care of him. And the narration goes on to mention that eventually, one day, the servants that they had hired to look after him and come and clean them and feed him and kind of just make sure he's okay didn't show up for a day or two. And the families had the servants haven't showed up, one of us is gonna have to go out there and deal with it.

00:26:34--> 00:26:39

And they said, you go, somebody said, No, you go, why I gotta go, you go, No, you go. And nobody went.

00:26:40--> 00:26:55

Because nobody wanted to deal with him. This is his own immediate family, his own, you know, wife and children. And nobody went to go check on him for a day or two, eventually, when two servants showed up to work again, and they went out there, and they checked on him, they said, He's dead.

00:26:56--> 00:27:13

He must have died. And he's just lying there dead is rotting away. So maybe family members, children, sons, maybe want to come in, you know, offer his funeral rites and bury him properly. And they said, Listen, nobody needs to know about this. He's a little bit of cash, just take care of it.

00:27:15--> 00:27:51

I'm not gonna touch him. I wasn't willing to go and deal with his mess when he was alive. He's been rotting for two days, I'm not going to go near that. Just take care of you some extra cash. I even didn't mention that. The some of the narrations in the in the seat actually mentioned that people in my car relate. They talked about that when Abu lahab reaches old stage, and his family had locked him away in this shed that in the middle of the night when it would get dark and there was no light, no lamp inside of that shed that because he you know, he had dementia and he was senile. And he was old, that he would get so scared and terrified in the middle of night, he would literally scream and

00:27:51--> 00:27:52

yell and cry all night long.

00:27:54--> 00:28:10

He would scream and yell and cry all night long. And people used to relate walking by that shed just terrified hearing the shrill screams of Abu lahab Can you imagine this used to be a Buddha? Look at him now. It's like a wild dying animal.

00:28:12--> 00:28:39

And, and eventually, so they give these servants this money. They said just dispose of him. And the servants take you know kind of wrap up his body and kind of take his body outside of Mecca to bury him. But burying someone in Morocco was very difficult. Because of obviously the region and the soil in the land. They're very difficult, very hard digging a grave. So they kind of went out to the early the outside areas of MCI and he looked around. And he said,

00:28:40--> 00:28:43

ain't nobody here, nobody's gonna see this, nobody's gonna know this.

00:28:45--> 00:29:07

So they kind of found a little bit of a spot, you know, where the mountains start. And some little, they found a little corner that was kind of hidden away from public view public eye, and they went there and they just dropped the body there. And then the servants actually mentioned this, that before they had even gotten too far away. They saw and heard the wild dogs, they used to roam around outside of macaque come and start to tear away at his body.

00:29:09--> 00:29:26

I was actually, you know, mentioning this, I was telling the story. And one of the brothers one of the students actually mentioned to me who had lived in the valley who had lived even in modern day who had lived in on the outskirts outskirts of Makkah, and he said that those wild dogs are actually there till today.

00:29:27--> 00:29:37

And he was talking about how when when the people who live out there, they actually tell them to be very careful, especially not let their children out at night and to be very careful because wild dogs will attack people.

00:29:38--> 00:29:49

So Subhan Allah, those wild dogs came in at a Buddha Hobbs body, and that's how I will have died. And you see part of the reason why I let him suffer such a fate because of look at the quality of this individual.

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

And the narration actually mentioned that this might have been one of those moments when Abu lahab started to lose his mind initially, that an agent mentioned after he had abandoned even his own

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

Family members and joined with the operations that I'm with y'all. I don't care about everybody else, that the narration mentions that Abu lahab would they would find him they would see him sometimes kind of sitting there looking in his hand and saying that, I don't see Muhammad giving me anything. I don't see anything Mohammed's given me. And he would just keep repeating this and he would look in his hands and he would say, I don't see anything that Mohammed's given me. Why Why? Why would I have to support Mohammed? I don't see anything wrong with you. Nobody talking to him, you'd be sitting by himself just saying this over and over again. Maybe he was riddled by the guilt

00:30:35--> 00:30:46

of what he had done, or just resisting adopting a punishment from a law. But he would sit around literally saying, like, why, why why would I have to support Mohammed? I don't see Mohammed giving me anything.

00:30:47--> 00:30:55

And this became the fate of Abu lahab. And this was kind of the beginning of the end of Abu lahab. So this is basically what went down.

00:30:56--> 00:31:19

And there's a narration which mentions about how the Muslims how the believers dealt with the conditions in the situation during these three years of this severe social boycott. And the narration actually mentions at one time one of the uncle's have had deja radi Allahu taala on ha

00:31:22--> 00:31:30

ha deja been waylaid the wife of the prophets Allah meaning or the Allahu taala on her, that one of her uncle's

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

who was again a very prominent respectable man amongst separation. And because of not being immediate family, he was not necessarily included in the boycott. He wasn't out there with these people. But nevertheless, at the same time, he still empathized with the suffering and what was going on with these people. So the ration mentions that Hakeem bin is on who was the uncle of hajiya, Van Halen, he took some food. He took a lot of like grain and food and things like that and he had a slave with him who was carrying a lot of this ham and the slave were both carrying take imagine they were carrying like couple of big sacks of food. And they were basically going towards

00:32:13--> 00:32:22

the valley to share Baba, we thought him to deliver this to the the people that were there that were suffering there. And they ran into a boo Jan.

00:32:24--> 00:32:44

They ran into boo john, when Abu Jamal saw them. I will john was beside himself. Because he had already heard that a lot of the people in Makkah didn't like what was going on. And he was already upset about that. And he was already very, you know, he kind of knew he had that on his mind. And so when he sees his main carrying food, he said, The Amina bunny.

00:32:45--> 00:33:15

Are you trying to take food to those people? We're lucky to have untangle Takahata of the haka maka, he said, I swear to God, you will not go to them, nor will you be able to take any food to them until I have immediately humiliated you and ruined you in Mecca. Meaning I will, I will, I will take this food from you. I will embarrass you I will beat you up. I will humiliate you in front of everyone. And then I'll send you to these people to go and live with them. A Buddha has said this.

00:33:16--> 00:33:53

And Hakeem when he's on this man was trying to reason with Abu Jamal trying to tell him that listen, no, this, you know, this belongs to Khadija. I'm not giving her anything. This belongs to her. I'm just returning back to her what belongs to her. He was trying to use that as trying to get viable john. john was screaming and yelling and threatening him. A man came along by the name of Abubakar horrible victory who came along and he said what's going on between the two of you? What's going on over here?

00:33:54--> 00:34:01

abou john started screaming Yamuna tombola Bani Hashim. He's taking food to brainwash him to

00:34:02--> 00:34:09

taking food to those traders, to those people. So boop, boop boop, he says, to Alan Gannon Leanna tea.

00:34:11--> 00:34:35

or excuse me, I got the relationship exam was the nephew of Khadija rhodiola and another uncle use nephew Khadija rhodiola and how was he and so he said he's just taking food to his aunt. Like he's taking food that belongs to his on to his on like it belongs to her. It's her. He's taking her food to her like he's not helping them. You got this all wrong and try to calm down

00:34:36--> 00:34:58

a Bula Abidjan. But Abu Jahan you know, wasn't hearing any of this and he kept yelling and screaming so I will book that he getting a little irritated with abou john. He said suddenly habila honey Sevilla Rajan. Once you get out of this ways, man, get a get out of this man's way. Get out of his way. Let him go let him do what he has to do. Honey 711 Rajan

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

Abuja.

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

wasn't gonna have any of them. He said, No, I'm sending right here. And he kept yelling and screaming. And he said, No, I'm not gonna let y'all go.

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

And then Abu Jamal basically reaches out and tries to attack him when he's on a booster he gets in the way.

00:35:20--> 00:35:59

And so a blue john tries to hit a blue book study. The problem is that a blue book that he was was a stronger man than a blue john, and a book that he not only pushes Abu Jamal back but reaches down and the narration actually mentioned that there was a Jawbone of a camel that was laying there on the ground because there's a little bit outside of Mecca that this whole you know, situations going down there was a Jawbone of a camel that was on the ground that I will book that he picked up and he cracked w john over the head with it. It seems to be like a common theme in the life of abou john by the way. All right, there was a thumbs out of the a loved one who and there was honorable Hata radi

00:35:59--> 00:36:11

Allahu anhu and now apparently a book that he's doing the same thing. So with john probably by this time, didn't have a lot of hair growing on his head but he picks up this this Jawbone of a camel and cracks him over the head with it.

00:36:12--> 00:36:42

And abou john falls down bleeding from the head I will book that he gets on him and just starts to finish him off. You know UFC style. He's just on top of him. He's just finishing him off. The narration actually mentions Well, what the who, what Anisha didn't. He basically just started pounding and stomping on Abuja, like you little man. You're gonna try to come and attack me. I tried to talk to you. You didn't want to listen to the language you speak. Because now that he's beside himself now he's furious and angry because he feels dishonored and insulted and disrespected.

00:36:43--> 00:36:45

But this is where something very interesting happens.

00:36:47--> 00:37:19

Hamza bin Abdul muttalib radi Allahu taala because this was outside of Makkah. This is not very far from the sheer the valley where they were staying. hums out of the a lot one who sees this. He sees what's going on. Now he's about to log on who had put a weapon himself on Abuja before. So as far as he's concerned, he's like, dude, he's never gonna learn his lesson. You know, that dude just doesn't learn his lesson. But how's that? Oh, the Allahu anhu. And some of the other Muslims that are believers. Were very intelligent. They had foresight, they had been trained by the prophet sallallahu sallam. These are the students of the prophets a lot. And we don't realize that

00:37:19--> 00:37:54

sometimes. You know, they weren't just kind of like in this situation altogether. Like I'm we might as well suffer all together. No, these were the students of the prophets allottee center. So they had learned foresight and vision. And they been trained by the prophets a lot. He sent them homes that are the loved one who sees this. So he gathers up some of the other Muslims, some of the other Muslim believing men, and he takes them and they go there and they basically push up the book, the back, they do some of them, they kind of grab him and pull him off, rip them away from Abuja, and the other Muslim men, the surround double john, and to protect them and they say, sorry, that's

00:37:54--> 00:38:04

enough. That's it. We've got you made your point. We appreciate it. But you go now. And they actually saved double John's life.

00:38:05--> 00:38:07

The same double John's life.

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

Now, there's two things for us to consider here. Number one, obviously, because, you know, on one side, you could argue that because you know, for the sake of Public Safety and peace and tranquility, and valuing human life, they save them and they protect them. This was no doubt, most definitely a consideration on their part. But on the other hand, somebody could also argue These are the people who had witnessed Abu jahl in cold blood murderers who may or the Allahu taala in broad daylight.

00:38:39--> 00:38:58

So at the same time, yes, they had a consideration for you know, the sanctity of life, but this is somebody who had forgotten the sanctity of his own life by murdering not one but multiple individuals in broad daylight, defenseless, innocent people, even women and children, he had murdered them.

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

So the second part of the consideration that some of the classical historians they actually mentioned here, even as hopper writes about this he mom even Kathy Rahim, Allah tala, he writes about this as well. That part of the reason why I did this was a Corolla, Corolla, Corolla is a lot easier was hibu for your schema to be him Rasulullah salami Samarra, Danica Docomo who Leyland manoharan was Ceylon YG era. Una de la la la la Yabba LA, de la nurse for jhala courage. hanaa Mana amago minha vakama Allahu apama. Woman Bani Hashim were many of the Natale doula who were high lubaina who will be nama arado mineral Bochy, Yamuna who esnz una Who were you are Simona who

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

would you allow for allianzgi lofi Qureshi adapting him or him Allah subhana wa t woman woman sama, Lana woman whom Allah Fie Quran Fianna

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

mundaka Lago mineral Kufa, it goes on to talk more about some of the extenuating circumstances there. But basically, what they mentioned here is that at the same time, part of their consideration was that if this man was killed,

00:40:13--> 00:40:52

and you know, as vile as this man is, he's still viewed as a leader of the people back in back in Mecca for Quraysh. If he's murdered out here like this in cold blood with us, in close proximity, just looking on and watching on even if a book that he takes responsibility for it, because the the culture in Arabia at that time was, you know, he probably would have said, Yeah, I killed him, because he disrespected me, then if any of y'all want to disrespect me, y'all are gonna end up just like him, too. That was kind of the culture in Arabia at that time. So even if he takes responsibility, but as if it happened because of us, and we were standing right here, they will find

00:40:52--> 00:41:22

a way to kind to basically wrap us up in this and put some blame on us for this. And then they will come out hunting, a lot of sacrifices have been made by the profits, a lot even viable dollar by the families, by them believers, a lot of sacrifices have been made, to try to keep the machinery cool at bay. And so that the message more than anything else, the message of Allah subhanaw taala can continue to be propagated. And if this man is murdered out here like this, they're gonna come hunting us down.

00:41:24--> 00:41:27

They're gonna pull out all the stops. And we can't have that happen.

00:41:29--> 00:41:39

So they had this type of foresight and vision. So number one, one was a consideration of the fact that this type of senseless violence needed to be put in into.

00:41:40--> 00:42:19

Secondly, there was also the consideration because of Abu John's personal circumstances, because Abu Jamal himself, you, usually the first consideration would have been enough to put an end to the violence. But because Abu Jamal is a unique case, he's basically a fit our own of his people. Because of that, there was also the second consideration on the part of believers, that we also have to look out for the good of the message, as well as the good of the demon, the good of the believers, and the prophets along the sentiment, our families as well. We can't let this man be killed out here like this, because then other people will come hunting us down. And so they actually

00:42:19--> 00:42:22

saved Abuja, his life that day.

00:42:23--> 00:42:29

But of course, the Buddha didn't really seem to care much for that. And he continued on doing whatever he did.

00:42:30--> 00:42:37

So these were some of the situation circumstances that were going down during this boycott at this time.

00:42:38--> 00:42:46

Now, while this is all going on, basically extend this over to a period of three years,

00:42:47--> 00:42:50

where you can imagine how difficult the situation must have been.

00:42:52--> 00:43:01

At towards the end of these three years. I've talked about a couple of things have happened. Number one, because of the suffering of the people,

00:43:02--> 00:43:41

because of the suffering of the people and their circumstances in their situation, the general sentiment on the ground amongst the common public, the common people, and many of these people have relationships and friendships with many of the people that are going through this situation. The sentiment in Makkah is not very favorable towards this, this boycott, they don't like this. They're not okay with this. He said, We don't like what's going on at all. But at the same time, of course, there's some apprehension because the major leaders are basically the ones that are backing this and pushing this. So there's But nevertheless, there is a growing sentiment in Makkah that we don't like

00:43:41--> 00:44:08

the way this is going. At the same time. Abu Talib comes to the prophets a lot. A sentiment says, you know the people are suffering. Things are bad the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in narrations even talk about him being in being in serious anguish looking at the suffering of his people, and the suffering of all these innocent people, women and children, and he's very bothered and disturbed by this. So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:44:11--> 00:44:24

comes to Abu Talib. Abu Talib says I want to approach these people and negotiate with them. I know that they said no negotiation, but I have to, I have to try something. I can't watch women and children die like this. I just can't do it.

00:44:25--> 00:44:30

So the prophets allowed him to do it. And he comes up with Taliban. He says

00:44:31--> 00:44:34

that Allah subhanaw taala has done something.

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

And the narration mentions that

00:44:42--> 00:45:00

a lost power Jana has sent down upon this agreement and it said that this agreement that they had written, was hung from the Kaaba itself. They had hung it from the Kaaba from the top part of the Kaaba, and I've talked about in one of the earlier sessions, how the Kaaba when it was reconstructed. It was made

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

twice its height, like the height that we see today that was done actually at the time in the province of some before in the blue when we talked about that in detail. So because it was so much higher, they put up a ladder and they went and they hung it from the top of the Kaaba, so nobody can reach it without somebody seeing somebody trying to get to it. And so the narration says that a lost Potala problem prophets, Allah tells us what Alibaba has sent termites and insects.

00:45:25--> 00:46:00

Upon that agreement, that written agreement, and those termites in those insects have specifically and it duration says they have taken the agreement. Obviously, if you leave a piece of paper out like that, you know, or even some parchment or something, you leave that out like that, it's gonna, it's gonna get ruined just by weather and everything else it's going to weather away. So what they ended up doing was they actually wrapped it they encased in inside of leather. They eroded and basically binded it inside of leather and tied it up. And then that's how they get hung in a last panel which I sent insects down inside the wrapped leather,

00:46:01--> 00:46:40

onto the agreement. And the profits, a lot of some tells about Olive, that those inside insects went in there and ate away wherever the name of Allah may have been, wherever the name of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was, inside of that agreement. There is no mention of God, there is no mention of a law, there is no mention of anything good. All that's left in there is their vile words and their vile words in their vile agreement, the unfortunate things that they have written on the volume, or the oppression or the wrong all the sin that they have mentioned there. Those are the only things left the name of God has been removed from their miraculously and Alliance and these insects to do

00:46:40--> 00:47:06

it. And at the same time this coincided with the reports is the book, the books of seed are mentioned that some of the men from Blue abdomen often say, and some of them had basically gotten together. And they had said that we need to go tonight to Abu Jamal and some of the leaders of Croatia and we need to go to them and we need to tell them This has to stop.

00:47:08--> 00:47:44

So now the general public in Mecca is saying no, this needs to stop the DEA appointed a delegation they said tonight we're gonna go to Abuja and the rest of his people and we're gonna tell them Disney says stop tonight This is over. And at the same time while they're basically preparing to go talk to abou john, the prophets Allah these are selling Olive Allah has sent down these insects to eat away at the name of Allah when Abu Talib goes into Makkah, and the narration actually mentioned that when he walked into the garba into the huddle when he walked into an Abu john sitting with his High Council of MCI sitting there and they see a little taller So first of all, they're like who

00:47:44--> 00:47:46

told this guy he can come around here

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

and then these horrible thought he was looking at them basically intending to come talk to them, so they kind of get ready and they're kind of whispering to each other like Oh, here he comes begging for their lives now they're gonna he's gonna hand over Muhammad. Now you see, now he's gonna hand over Muhammad

00:48:02--> 00:48:09

Abu Talib comes in, sits down and addresses them. And he basically says, he starts off by

00:48:11--> 00:48:12

talking to them.

00:48:13--> 00:48:30

And he, first of all, he represents them. He says other cut the other half. Moon Bay nakum lamb North kohala he said some things, you know that you people have done. I'm not going to talk about what what's happened in the past.

00:48:31--> 00:48:36

But he kind of reprimands them. And he says that what you people have done.

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

You blame Mohammed for severing family relations, you blame Mohammed for causing problems in Makkah, you blame Mohammed for calling causing problems in your community. But what you people have done is more heinous and worse than what anybody has ever done before. You have left to your own women and children.

00:48:55--> 00:49:01

People that are related to people that you were in charge of, you've left them out there to die from starvation.

00:49:02--> 00:49:14

So don't you dare ever lecture me? Or Muhammad, about family and about tribe and about people and community? Don't you dare talk about that? I've been out there watching women and children die.

00:49:16--> 00:49:20

So you people have no moral footing, no moral grounds to speak on.

00:49:21--> 00:49:29

And I'm here to deliver a straightforward message. Am I here to offer Mohammed on a on a silver platter to you? Absolutely not.

00:49:30--> 00:49:32

I will protect him to my last breath.

00:49:33--> 00:49:43

But what I am here to do, what I am here to do is to tell you, once you go and bring your agreement, Mohammed who I know does not lie.

00:49:45--> 00:49:59

He's told me that Allah the God that He invites all of us to has sent down insects into that agreement, who have eaten away in devoured wherever the name of God or wherever there is a dimension of any good

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

they've eaten away and only left the bad thing that you had written in that agreement.

00:50:06--> 00:50:08

So go and bring it, take a look at it.

00:50:09--> 00:50:24

Now, obviously, you know, I will probably basically put them in their place. So they really don't have much to say when he says bring the agreement. Some of them you know, because like I talked about general sentiment in MCI is, man this needs to stop. It's gone too far.

00:50:25--> 00:50:27

So some people are like, Alright, let's go look at Abu Jamal says, No,

00:50:29--> 00:50:30

we don't need to look at anything.

00:50:31--> 00:50:49

Around that same time. The narration mentions that, that delegation of the people of Mecca that was going to come and speak to them about making this stop, they arrive at the same time. And they say, yeah, let's see the agreement. Let's see the agreement.

00:50:51--> 00:50:55

And so now it starts to get kind of loud and rowdy. Everyone's like I bring the agreement, Abuja

00:50:57--> 00:51:02

Yamanaka amarula, Sham, like if you're not afraid, then bring it.

00:51:04--> 00:51:35

Come on. Let's take a look at it. And I will tell him at that point in time, seeing that Abuja Hall is still being a little bit stubborn. He basically said, Okay, okay, you want to, you want to up the odds a little bit. You want to know how confident I am about this. He says that if the insects if in reality, when Mohammed says is true, these insects have eaten away the name of God and the mention of the Kaaba and the mention of anything sacred. If that, in fact has happened, and Mohammed is speaking the truth as I know that he is,

00:51:37--> 00:51:39

then this boycott will end right here right now.

00:51:41--> 00:52:18

But if what I'm saying and what Mohammed has sent me to deliver to you, the message is not true. And we bring that agreement and that's not the case. That's not what's happened. Then I will go and tie up Muhammad and bring him to you and deliver him to you right here right now. And you can execute him You can do whatever you want with him. That's how confident I am. So he kind of Abu Talib is realizing, you know that he had to kind of call a Buddha like that and public and kind of question his manhood a little bit. So he calls him out like this challenges him. So of course now boudjellal if he turns down the deal, then he's a coward.

00:52:19--> 00:53:05

He's a coward. So chances are I'd go and bring the agreement. Let's take a look at it. When they bring the agreement and they open it up. It's exactly as the prophets a lot of em for Fatah who was Siva, for what they do a solid and must Duke cadac barabara. They found that a solderable mostofa Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he always truthful and the one whose truthfulness was attested to by Allah himself and by humanity and the people around him that he had, of course against spoken the truth, and it was exactly as data for tomorrow atop race, color, the color of Bhutanese color we're lucky in Ghana had our cotton Illa serum and sahibi comm for takizawa duby.

00:53:05--> 00:53:14

Sheree makinwa Lehmann cufon sobu jan and some of his cronies basically tried to say, Aha, see, this is more magic from Mohammed.

00:53:15--> 00:53:28

There's more magic from Mohammed. We're gonna stick to what we said earlier. We're gonna keep doing what we have to do. But the narration says at that point in time, even some of the people who originally were on Abuja had side.

00:53:29--> 00:54:06

They said, some of the people were a boo boo 30, the same man who I talked about earlier, who had kind of given up with a little bit of a beating. He was there to use a liter of pradesh at the end of the day. You can imagine that must have been an awkward meeting. Right? So a little book study is their motor. Amina ID motor, Amina de who was always a supporter of you know, at generally speaking was a little bit more supportive from the leadership of who he was there. So hate have been a Beatlemania Benelli movida was there as Emma I've been the last word was there. He chimed in Ahmed Abu Jamal himself was there but what ended up happening at this time, these other leaders a couple

00:54:06--> 00:54:19

of books, study and motor Amina D and these other leaders basically also said taboo john, like, sorry, man. It is what it is. It is what it is. This has to end right here right now.

00:54:21--> 00:54:59

And some of the narrations mentioned that literally standing right there what kind of sealed the deal what convinced even some of the other leaders of the High Council of Quraysh to basically give this up and to to break the agreement and even go against a boo boo Jalan what Abu Jamal was insisting on that Abu Talib recited some poetry there and I will call it was a very eloquent man in his poetry. We've talked about before the poetry recited earlier throughout the stages of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Nizam. It said that he recited some poetry

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

They're to kind of get to

00:55:02--> 00:55:18

some of the decency and the pride of these other individuals I find out booja booja you can't reason with abou gel but these other ones I will work to remove some of these other leaders I can still appeal to the goodness in them. And Abu Talib recited some poetry. He said Allah I believe

00:55:19--> 00:56:05

database Nina Lu avian Bahasa mindwave Annie Kagan, he said that I'm here to basically reason with you know, I'm here to reason about our relationship with blue Louis, and more specifically, but who God that was the, the families of British Columbia Talamo and now Mohammedan labianca Moosa who toffee oh well good to be. Don't they understand that we have found Mohammed to be truthful and to be a prophet like the prophets before him? Well, he filler a baddie Mohammed button.

00:56:54--> 00:56:58

Rise Above this rise above this and find your decency.

00:56:59--> 00:57:11

Before graves are dug for innocent people, and innocent people are dying and buried in a way that not even the guilty should be buried. When I attempt to whether that's Barrow Umbra, Lucia it was

For less now we're up bill Beatty, newsflash. muda Li Isaiah Eman Huggies Emmanuella Kirby. He says because we I swear by the rub of this bait, he points out the car by standing there imaginable taalib standing there speaking this loudly screaming these words, he points out the comment he says I swear by this the rub of this bait. I swear by the Lord of this majestic house that we will not hand over. We will not hand over Muhammad. And I talked about earlier in the earlier session not only as a lot

00:58:40--> 00:59:14

referred to the prophets, a lot of them was Ama dinakaran. But that was a specific name that more of his close family members called him the mother of the prophets, a lot of them used to like calling him a hermit. And that's why they will call him when he would speak to them oftentimes, even when he wouldn't call him beloved nephew or dear son, he would call him by the name of Ahmed. So he says I swear and by using the name Ahmed, he's letting them know that this my boy is my boy that you asked him for. You think I'm gonna come here and serve up my boy to you to be murdered and killed. You must have lost your mind. I swear by the Lord of this majestic house. We will not hand over these,

He goes on to talk about it. And he uses some very eloquent stuff talking about battle and war in extreme circumstances. But then he ends by saying Elisa buena Hashimoto shut the Azra who will also bunny he bitter it will be Darby. He says isn't Hashem one of our fathers. And remember I've talked about this Hashem was one of the forefathers of the prophets, Allah the sentiment of the people of boo Hashem. The people of courageous was called brainwash Him, who had brought a lot of dignity and

00:59:55--> 00:59:59

honor. And we've actually talked about why he was called Hashem

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

was not his name, but Leanna who has Shama? alhuda? Because he was one of the first people before initially, when people would visit the GABA, maca. They would serve them waters, Arizona. But he was the first one who said, No, we need to do more than that. And he actually would sit there and he would have his wife and the women of the home big bread. And he would sit there and break the bread himself, and then break it up into cut it up into small pieces. And then he would serve it to people along with designs and water, very honorable, dignified manner brought a lot of respect and dignity to Makkah to flourish. That he basically said, that isn't Hashem our forefather? And didn't he, you

01:00:39--> 01:00:57

know, work very hard to teach us to be good. And teach us about how you know serious war in some of these circumstances are one Lesnar, and he also said but at the same time, he taught us good moral ethics and qualities, but he also taught us how to fight.

01:00:58--> 01:01:01

He also taught us how to fight and remember, I am the grandson.

01:01:03--> 01:01:13

I am the grandson of Hashem Abu Talib is saying, so he's appealing to them saying, look, war is not a good thing. We don't want to fight because innocent people will die.

01:01:14--> 01:01:29

And we'll have to bury our loved ones with our own hands. But at the same time, he ends by telling them he goes, Hashem is my grandfather. He's a leader, somebody you all look up to, but he's my grandfather. He's my granddaddy, as you're saying this out, right? And he taught us how to fight.

01:01:31--> 01:01:42

He taught us how to fight. And he says, Well, that's not in the manual, how to baja Tata Molina. And he says, We will we're not afraid of fighting. He says, I do we do not bore a fighting.

01:01:43--> 01:01:47

I don't get bored fighting. Until fighting gets bored of me.

01:01:48--> 01:01:51

Basically saying war does not end me I end war.

01:01:52--> 01:02:02

I finished things. And this very drastic from unlikable calling to say I will die He was known for his gentle disposition. He was known for being a very humble modest man.

01:02:03--> 01:02:15

But Abidjan kind of pushed it a little too far. So he appeals to them to their good sense of their decency and their family and things like that. He appealed to them but he kind of ends by saying like, I'm not here to beg and plead for my life.

01:02:16--> 01:02:43

No, this I finished things. You might start it, but I'll finish it. Well, that's Nana Mandeville harbor Hata Mallanna Alana Stacie Martha de novo Mina Naqvi. And he goes and we were taught by our forefathers not to complain about difficulty. We can take difficulty three years. Three years we've been listening to our children cry themselves to sleep three years we've been burying our dead.

01:02:44--> 01:02:52

Oh, we're not tired. We're not done. We can keep this going. So you best take into consideration who you're here to pick a fight with. Well, I can Nana

01:02:54--> 01:03:03

hava le, when I kill Nana, hava Illy, when new ha is our Torah or wha hoo at him in a Robbie.

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

And he said, realize that rather we are people, even though we can fight. We can finish things we can do, we can dance, but at the same time know that we are people who pride themselves on protecting people.

01:03:21--> 01:03:23

We strive to protect life.

01:03:24--> 01:03:37

We are people who identify and pride ourselves on protecting life and new high intelligence. We're an intelligent people who value them in life. Either Barbara or welcome asimina Robbie.

01:03:38--> 01:03:50

Because the souls of the people who go out there into the battlefield, eventually one time they leave their body. Meaning if all of us were as eager to fight as you are all the time, oh, boo john, we'd all be dead.

01:03:51--> 01:04:15

So I'm not afraid to fight. But I know that there is a place and a time for intelligence and for the preservation of life. Bhutanese spoke these words screaming, loudly, powerfully, standing right in front of the Kaaba trying to just get that mental image. The majestic Kaaba there, anybody who's everybody who's anybody, all the important people in

01:04:16--> 01:04:19

that agreement being held in someone's hand

01:04:21--> 01:04:34

and eaten away wherever the name of Allah or the name of the gobbler any sacred mentioned was there holding them miraculous, you know, that that, that that resolved the consequence of the miracle of Allah subhanaw taala.

01:04:35--> 01:04:38

And I will call him standing there proud and dignified,

01:04:39--> 01:04:47

screaming pointing out the GABA, reminding them of reality. By the time obatala was done, everybody had heard enough.

01:04:49--> 01:04:51

And they took that agreement and he tore it up.

01:04:53--> 01:04:59

They snatched it from mobile jazz hands and they tore it up and they said, this is done. This is over. We're finished.

01:05:00--> 01:05:01

Bring our people back home.

01:05:02--> 01:05:07

We still don't agree with Muhammad for bringing our people back home, this needs to stop.

01:05:09--> 01:05:11

And this was three years after the fact.

01:05:12--> 01:05:30

Three years later, the Muslims, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, his family members, but then moved on. And even those people who hadn't accepted asylum, but stood by the promises, and they all came back home, they arrived back home, to the safety of their homes, and to Mecca

01:05:31--> 01:06:17

to not only, you know, finally get some relief from the suffering in the valley, but secondly, now it was back to, in some instances back to square one. Now, let's try to figure this out. How are we going to make this work here in Makkah, and so in the next sessions will basically talk about the aftermath, and what was done to basically handle and deal with the circumstances when the believers and the prophets allottee sent them excuse me, we're back in Mecca. Now, one of the last things that I wanted to kind of mention here in the session that I didn't mention earlier, that the classical narrations, even his Shawn mentions is even as hot mentions this alumni been Kathy Ramallah, which

01:06:17--> 01:06:49

Allah mentions is that in this something that's pretty popularly known, that the person who wrote the actual agreement with his hands the cat tip, the one who wrote the agreement, the one that Abu jahl sat down and was willing to sit down and put something as vile as this as down on a piece of paper was a man by the name of monsoon binhai Chroma monsoon have been a Chroma and he's the one who basically had written this down, even if Shawn mentions in another narration, that it was another open Hadith.

01:06:50--> 01:07:32

But even cathedra homologs Allah after compiling a lot of narrations about who it was, he basically reconcile generations he says, No, it was once would have been a karma. And as even as Hakan mentioned, that is a more reliable position. And he's the one who had basically written this down. And it said that when the prophets Allah saw the suffering, babies that were starving and dying, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was so pained by seeing innocent people, especially children, in suffering, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam may do it against whoever wrote something as vile as this. And it said, That man should have been in a coma, basically, his hand became paralyzed after

01:07:32--> 01:07:33

he had written this.

01:07:34--> 01:08:08

He his hand, became paralyzed, shall lay do some narration, say Chatelet ba, ba, ba ba that there was some of his fingers that became paralyzed, where his hand became paralyzed. And he was not able to use his hand or write anything else after that, for the rest of his life. And that was kind of a punishment that, you know, descended upon him, because of his being party to something that was the cause of such severe suffering for so many people. So to kind of conclude the session here, we learn a lot of different lessons, we learn that we learned something from the foresight in the vision of

01:08:10--> 01:08:11

the kind of taking a step back,

01:08:12--> 01:08:29

taking a step back from a very volatile situation, a situation had a lot of wisdom into profits, a lot of them had employed that same strategy earlier when he sent, you know, 100 plus believers over to Habesha. When he had done that, that was that same strategy to kind of take a step back a little bit.

01:08:30--> 01:08:44

Secondly, we also see that the believers even in these extreme circumstances, were still willing to not let their emotions get the best of them not into fall into a mode of vengeance.

01:08:45--> 01:09:18

And big, being a very vengeful, you know, have a vengeful attitude. But when they even witness Abu Jamal being beaten to death, they're able to step in, and save his life more important, for more and more than any other reason they, they're willing to do this, and they do this, why to not create more problems down the road, to not have all of this sacrifice be for nothing at all. And to protect the situation from deteriorating even further. They're willing to save the life of an enemy, the one who has basically caused all of this happen.

01:09:19--> 01:09:28

So you see the wisdom and the foresight, the temperament of the prophets, allottee settlement of the believers, the wisdom, the foresight,

01:09:29--> 01:09:48

the patience that they were willing to employ in order to preserve this situation. At the same time, you also see that, why wouldn't if it was a miracle in and of itself, of these insects coming down and eating away at this piece of paper? Why didn't the last element that happened three years ago,

01:09:49--> 01:09:52

so many innocent people suffering could have been prevented?

01:09:53--> 01:10:00

Why is that happening Three years later, three years is a long time. And that's that's kind of some time

01:10:00--> 01:10:11

problem I have even with even talking about the Sierra. I just sat there and in an hour told you about the suffering of a people that lasted for three years. It seems like injustice.

01:10:13--> 01:10:14

It seems like injustice.

01:10:16--> 01:10:18

Can you imagine three years of suffering?

01:10:19--> 01:10:34

Why did I watch Pousada wait for three years before making this miracle occur and happen because you have to take the circumstances into consideration. These people have listened to the Quran have witnessed miraculous events before.

01:10:35--> 01:10:41

But Allah subhanaw taala sent this miracle to be the straw to break the camel's back.

01:10:42--> 01:10:47

But what happened before it is, was generally speaking, the conscious

01:10:48--> 01:10:51

the conscious of the people of MCAD, already awoken.

01:10:53--> 01:11:31

The it had reached a point where the general public and moko was not okay with it anymore. When that was the circumstance, and then the case, then Allah subhanaw taala, causes something miraculous like this to happen, because that's the right time. That's the perfect moment. So it also states the fact that sometimes for people who are striving to believe in Allah, who are willing to sacrifice to believe in Allah, who are willing to sacrifice for the better for for preserving and sharing and spreading this guidance to all of mankind, they might have to sacrifice they might have to suffer and we learn a lesson from the early believers, we might have to sacrifice and we have to be willing

01:11:31--> 01:11:48

to sacrifice, we don't ask for it in us, necessarily alfia that without all we ask you for protection, that's the law, if you had the presence of the law, if you ask the law for protection for safety. So we ask a lot for protection.

01:11:49--> 01:11:57

But if sacrifice is required, in order for us to preserve and propagate the message of a law, we're willing to make that sacrifice.

01:11:58--> 01:12:39

But at the same time, we're going to have to have patience in those circumstances. They have patience, until the general conscious of the people was also awoken. And the people also realized that this cannot go on any further, you require a certain amount of support from the people backing from the people that has to be there. And that's exactly what was achieved. So a line is messengers allottee some required patience from the believers in the followers at that time. They had to be patient for three years, until finally the general sentiment in Makkah was no more, we don't like this, no way. This has to stop now. And then exactly coinciding with that this miracle comes from

01:12:39--> 01:12:42

Allah subhanaw taala, making all of this end

01:12:43--> 01:12:59

making all of this end. So these are some considerations. And then finally, at the end of the day, a believer still requires, you know, as a human being, no matter how strong of a believer someone is, as human beings, we still require some type of,

01:13:00--> 01:13:03

you know, some sort of just validation

01:13:04--> 01:13:06

that somebody cannot do something like this to us

01:13:08--> 01:13:21

and get away with it. Somebody cannot do something like this to us and get away Scot scot free. This is this just can't happen. As human beings, there's that need. I have to know somebody who does something like this suffers for it.

01:13:22--> 01:13:30

Everybody pays their price, even though we should be able to forgive and forget. But at some human level, there's that need.

01:13:31--> 01:13:40

Allah subhanaw taala look what he did Abu Jahan, humiliated, disgraced by his own people, turned on by his own people beaten industry,

01:13:41--> 01:13:43

like a vagrant.

01:13:45--> 01:13:58

Like a vagrant. He's beaten in the middle of the street, a turned on by his own, by his own followers in his own supporters and his own people and his own peers. And eventually, we know the fate that he dies with and we'll talk about that in the Battle of brother in the Medina and Sierra.

01:14:00--> 01:14:11

When a man like Abu lahab, turns on the profits a lot even turns on his own family, and is so willing to do so much harm to people believe in Allah. Look how he dies. We talked about that again today.

01:14:12--> 01:14:31

When the man who even sits down and very willingly like Hey, would you need me to write down for you? I got you man, I got this right here. Go ahead. When somebody's willing to be a party to something via like this, in just unjust like this oppression of oppressive in nature. Allah subhanaw taala paralyzed his writing hand.

01:14:32--> 01:14:37

And this man was never able to write again for the rest of his life. So everyone could No, this is a man who wrote that.

01:14:39--> 01:14:46

This is a man who wrote that he will never write another thing for the rest of his days. Allah does take care of those people who need to be taken care of.

01:14:47--> 01:14:59

But we have to let Allah subhanaw taala make a decision. We have to let a las panatela do that whenever the time is right. We don't have to worry about being judged and jury and executioner. That's not our job. Leave us job to Allah. Allah.

01:15:00--> 01:15:42

Aladdin, Allah will let will make justice prevail. We have to focus on ourselves and our primary focus should be the responsibility we have. And the responsibility we have is La Ilaha Illa Muhammad Rasul Allah, this Imam, this faith this kalama distill heed this rissalah this foreign disaster, this is our trust, this is our responsibility. Yeah. Kelly Matilda to make sure that the name of Allah subhanaw taala you know, spreads amongst the people and belief in Allah subhanaw taala is maintained in the hearts of people. That is our responsibility. That's where our focus needs to be. That was the focus of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and the early believers and this, this

01:15:42--> 01:16:15

very, very, you know, moving serious event, from the life of the prophets Allah from from them I consider the three years of boycotting the show of obatala is a great example of that. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the reality of the Sierra, the life of the prophets, Allah, Anita, may Allah subhanaw taala give us the ability to benefit from this, learn this and live our lives according to the valuable lessons that are found in the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Subhana Allah He will be humble he Subhana columbium Nick, Mashallah. Illa illa Anta saphira cavanna to be like,
