See the life of the Prophet by sheer Abdul Nasir zhongda visit us on the web at Calum Institute dot o RG or find us on [email protected] slash Gollum Institute. So continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a serial number we're
in the last couple of sessions we talked about the boycott in the Sharpeville, Vitaly, the three years of isolation and boycott. And the aftermath of that, I wanted to take a little bit of a step back to the time when actually the boycott was an old when it was cancelled. Because there were I talked a little bit about how the general sentiment in Makkah started to grow very negative towards this boycott, and how a whole group of people basically protested. Abu Talib kind of took that opportunity and stood up and spoke, and then basically told them go and check the the scroll along which to boycott the agreement was written. And they found that miracle that the prophets Allah had
informed them of. But I had talked a little bit about very vaguely, I had spoken about how a group of people from Makkah, the McKinsey himself started to protest against this, and I wanted to kind of elaborate on that a little bit more, because that's going to work into the theme of the next few events that we're going to talk about here from the seat or the life of the prophets a lot he said them.
So in that situation where protests occurred, for ending the boycott, even as hakama, Allahu taala mentions that there were a few people who actually started to campaign, even outside of that one gathering. It wasn't just that at that one moment, a bunch of people stood up and said, Yeah, absolutely, this boycott is wrong. We need to end this now. No, there was actually a little bit of a movement, there was campaigning that was going on in Mecca. Among some very, very influential people.
amongst their names, it mentions that
a few different people started to get together and started to recruit others to basically go out there, gather some support, and then basically state a case against this boycott and why does boycott needs to end? One of the first ones that's mentioned in this particular
a man by the name of
let me actually just find there's a lot of different names here, but
so it may it mentions a man by the name of a sham that this man named a sham. He actually goes to a very famous leader of MK of courage by the name of Xu Haider. And this was a very influential man who had been a Beatlemania opinion leader. He this man named a sham goes to hate and he says he has weighed a quarter alita Antara takala Tom otonabee South yard Watson camisa Aqua Luca hijo de alimta, la Yuba own Well, I mean whom when I can get home Well, I am, he goes to Hey, you're a decent man. You're a good man. Are you telling me that you're okay with the fact that you continue to eat food and wear good clothes and interact with people and do business and enjoy family and
everything else? That life in Makkah brings you when you know that your own uncle's and he calls them uncles because these were still the blue Hashem who did not call him the prophets a lot. He summoned his family members were from the police. They were family members. And so he goes your own uncles, people that are related to you by blood are going through what they're going through. Are you telling me you're okay with this? And so, this demanding so he basically tells him, he goes, No, absolutely not. I'm not okay with this. He says but what am I supposed to do? He reverts to Abuja, I will How come is so insistent upon this, maintaining this course of action. So he goes, how are we
supposed to stand up against against a man like Abu Jahan hakam and all the influence that he has on all the people that he has with him, we're going to need somebody else with us and he says, For color who's who hate on ugliness, Allah familyfun we need to find the third person. We need to grow our numbers of this little party that we have. So the narration mentions that they basically then go to multimedia ad. Now a lot of them in it.
is a very interesting person who will play a very pivotal role later on in this era and we'll talk a little bit more about him. But he ends up he comes up in the Sierra again. So they go to multimedia rd and they say the same exact same exact thing. After the rabita and ulica button on him in the abdomen are for Anthony unterscheiden Allah donec MFI operation fee he goes motor m Are you saying that you're okay with witnessing to entire families talking about even some people from boo boo Hashem, that to entire extended families what we call a new like Han dance to extended families being completely wiped out and you're just gonna stand by and watch this happen. You'll be a witness
to such an atrocity. You're telling me a decent good man like who is okay with this? He goes Absolutely not. I'm not okay with this. And he goes that you will find me lethargy that you'll find me to be very quick in responding to you and helping you but it goes I have a problem from other asna What should I do, though, in the manner Rajan Wahid, I'm only one man. He said, Well, lacanian he said, Man, Paula Anna. So he said about Lena Saletan. calatayud fall to Parliament who apologized who had been a boo Mia. So Moto M since it says I need a second person to stand with me in this cause. He goes you have a second person that's me. He goes, Well, we need to find a third. He goes
I've already arranged he goes who goes away? So it goes we got three very influential people now.
He says but we still need to go and find a fourth person to stand with us. So they go to a book today. A ballbuster. He is the man that I mentioned generation who was sneaking stuff into Khadija radi Allahu Allah. He was taking things to Khadija de la Mancha and he was supporting basically the smuggling of goods into you know, the the boycott and the valley at that time. So they go to him knowing that he had a soft spot and he wasn't okay with this situation. They have the same conversation. He says I'm with you. He goes, but we need a fifth person. So they go to xmr I've been a sweat, who is the father of soda, soda, or the Aloha, who would later on be the second wife of the
Prophet salatu salam after the passing of Khadija the prophet SAW some would marry her. Her father, who is also a very good decent man, they go to hims xmr. And they say the same thing for kanima, who was a Corolla, who karabacek mahato. He talked to him like, Look, we're related to these people. How can we treat people like this? What's wrong with us today, and he joins him as well. So then they basically decided that we need to gather together in the evening at night.
And we need to basically make a show, we may need to make a stand, we need to put a little protest together. So they go there to the Harlem zoo. Hale is the one who's decided to speak on behalf of the group, he does go off. And when finishing too often, basically he addresses the people of Makkah. And that's basically where the whole protest happens. abou Talia comes at that time, I will call him Caesar situation, he speaks out as well, then the prophets allottees might hold up, we'll talk about the the scroll being eaten away by the bugs. And then he points that out. And then at that time, you know, the whole boycott basically ends. But I wanted to add some of the details that
you actually see people who did not accept this long. People who just were not who are not Muslim at that time. But these were people who wouldn't even go on to accept Islam. Not only were these people not Muslim at that particular time, they went on to not accept Islam. But you find these people not only voicing their support, well, you could say that, okay, if a huge tragedy is occurring and atrocity like this, and they're witnessing it, and they're kind of put on the spot, then of course, they'll say, yeah, this is bad. We shouldn't do this. But that's not the case here. These people are campaigning, they're petitioning one another, they're putting the group together, they're putting a
protest, and a petition together, why to alleviate the suffering of the Muslims of that time. And so it's a very interesting observation from the life from the era of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Now, when we basically move on further into the aftermath of these events, we talked a little bit about it last week, how the prophets a lot of them had to basically try to kind of settle back into the environment that was present at that time, but we also find something else very interesting.
One of the incidents that I mentioned earlier in our discussion on deceit, and that was when the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited similar to najem
in the harem, in near the Kaaba, and when he reached the final verse, the final Ayah first You do realize
Why buddhu prostrating before a lie of worship on the M. Then I talked about how all the people that were there present in the huddle Muslim, non Muslim alike, everybody fell into sujood with the prophets, a lot of them. And that sent a rumor like wildfire over to even at the senior East Africa. And the rumor you know how rumors are by the time we reached there, the rumor basically was all of my cousins become Muslim. And many of them came returning back some of the historian some of the scholars have said, I'll say that that return of many of the people from Abba Xenia actually took place at this time now, after the boycott was over. So there, there is some contention amongst the
scholars of sila that this return from Abba sr, actually occurred after the exit from the boycott, the three years of boycott. So
if we place it here, particularly then there's a couple of more very interesting things that occurred this time. So a good group of people, a decent number of them, actually returned back from Abu Shinya arrived back in Mecca, only to find the situation. And I mentioned previously that they actually stopped a little bit outside of Makkah. And then they basically realize what the truth of the matter was, and many of them head straight back from there, some of them came back into my cup, those who came back into Makkah, we're now we're now dealt with the harsh reality of things being as dangerous as ever in Mecca for a believer that the the opposition who was more fierce and more
violent than ever before. So now they were dealing with these very difficult circumstances. So we again, find here a very interesting trend. The trend that we find here is, there was a system that was in place at that time that was respected, even in that society and culture. And that was that if a respectable man, if a person of some level of respect and dignity and honor would grant his protection to someone, then that person would be safe from any type of persecution, or any type of violence, that person would receive protection and that person's protection, for the sake of that other person would be respected. This was a system this was part of their culture and MCI at that
time. So many of these believers who came back and decided to settle decided to settle down in Makkah at that time, they basically now we're looking for some type of protection.
One of them that's mentioned is Earth mungbean mother own Earth, magma, the owner, the Allahu taala, and who is one of the early companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And he basically was looking for some type of protection, to be able to reside in Mecca, but still be safe and to be protected.
So it's mentioned in the narrations that he went to
Alba even movie ROM, he goes to well, even movie law and he basically seeks out his protection, even though we're leaping movida, remember, is very, he's very aggressive in his opposition towards the profits allottee. So oftentimes, when they've come to debate, when they've come to argue, and they've gone to Abu Talib to make all types of ridiculous demands, and and, you know, propositions, when he been bullied oftentimes has been the mouthpiece, he's been the spokesperson, he's the one who speaks on the behalf of the people of America. So will lead me Molina is no friend to the Muslims by any means, but at the same time, or threatened him as their own because of being again
having some relation and being from a respectable family, when even movida grants him his protection. And so therefore, because of that nobody touches on their own. But the story goes on to mention that the owner, the loved one who goes around walks around in Mecca safe and sound. And the other thing is, whenever you would grant someone your protection like that the procedure was, you would go to the Kaaba, you would go to the harem, and there you would address everyone get everyone's attention and say, everyone Listen up, this man is in my protection
and violating this person safety and security will be an insult a direct insult to me personally and when we dealt will be dealt with accordingly. So there's a public declaration and so forth. madmen was the owner, the loved one who is now walking around Mecca, seeing many others a habit or the loved one whom, you know, in a great trial test and trial. They're being tortured, persecuted, killed, they're dealing with all types of things. Or the owner the Allahu taala and who says to himself at that time, we're lucky enough to do we were what are watching Amina feed you it Roger
was happy, new Dini yellow bone aminal Bella evil Adelphi nahi mala you see boonie he says that I swear by God, my
mornings and my evenings are safe and sound in the protection of a man who's from the people of shidduch. While my companions and the people who follow my religion do follow the same religion, my brothers and sisters in faith, they are dealing with, you know, great testing trial and are being persecuted and tortured, that I am not afflicted with. And he says Larnaca son, Catherine fennessy. I find this to be a problem with me personally, that I can live I can go by, I can feel great and awesome that I at least I'm good.
At least I'm good while everybody else suffers, and that doesn't trouble me or bother me. So he goes to when he'd been bullied, and he says, Yeah, about chumps. That was his nickname. He says, well, Fatima took our camera to Iraq. He said, You have done what you promised. But now I returned your protection back to you. I'm no longer in need of it. He says live in Lima. He goes, why? Because again, they're related. She goes, why my cousin? Why would you do that? Or my nephew? He says Rhonda, who?
told me he goes, did somebody mess with you? Did somebody mess with you? Even though I've told I've declared that you predicted by me? He goes Absolutely not. But I am what I can eat out of barbecue Allah azza wa jal. What would he do as the JIRA behind he, I am satisfied with the protection of a law and I don't need anyone else's protection. So then I'll believe in Medina because at the end of the day, remember, you know, he doesn't have anything emotionally or spiritually invested into the situation. He goes, go to the masjid, the beta law, the Harlem the Kaaba, go there, and over there publicly returned my protection back to me, just like I publicly extended it to you. That's how this
works. So he goes there with my mother goes, walks into the harem, addresses everyone and says that I return when he needs protection back to him, because I don't need anyone else's protection other than Allah.
At this point in time, Labib in robbia is sitting there lobbied was a poet, a great poet of that time. He's sitting there and when he hears earthman Bynum have their own takes such a huge step. He says navitas Allahu Lucia in Masha, Allah Allahu bateleur He goes, look, look at this man, everything other than Allah, everything aside, Allah is false. Allah is the only truth and then he goes on to say so earthman says so duck use rock in the truth.
So we see the awesome admin was owned even through this courageous act inspiring other people. But then he goes on to say well cool Luna Amy llama highlighter. elu he goes in every blessing will end one day. So they're earthman bin was the owner the loved one who corrects him he goes Capita nerima agenda normal agenda till he goes No, no, no, you've made a mistake now because the blessings of Paradise will never end. So lobbied he's a great poet. He's insulted by this he goes yeah, Mashallah. Well, lucky Makana you DJ Lee suka Makana, you the jellies who come from ah ha de FICO. He goes that this this companion of yours talking about himself in the third person, because he's a
poet, right? So he's got a little bit of arrogance, he's a celebrity. So he goes this, this esteemed companion of yours talking about himself has never been insulted in this way before. What has happened to you people that are that a celebrity like me can come here and is corrected and insulted here today.
And so the narration basically goes on to say, and he goes on to kind of another person stands up and it goes hand in the Hagia Sophia fee. So for her, Emma who he goes, this is a very foolish man and he he keeps company with other foolish people, but the Father pudina they've abandoned our religion for that, that he didn't have enough see come in only he he goes that don't mind anything this man has to say
are threatened by their own retorts, he responds and he goes What did I say wrong? And he kind of answers back until the thing becomes kind of heated. So another man basically stands up and strikes or thumping Maroon on the face. Someone so that he damages his eye
now in the narration just kind of mentioned a damaged his eye whether he actually ruptures er just gives him a black eye or whatever it is, but he seriously injures his face.
will even Molina standing there watching the whole thing. Remember whose protection Earth My mother used to be and he's watching the whole thing. And he walks up to him and he says that look at you. You're I would have still been okay. If you would have stayed in my protection.
I would have protected you you could have stayed in my protection and your I would have been okay. He says that was my response to him and says Belvoir logging in now Amy asahikawa nephila li mythri masaba aka filler he, he goes rather my other eye that is still alright needs to be injured in the same way my other eye was injured if it's done for the sake of a lot and it's completely worth it. He said for the sake of a lot, I'm just waiting for my other eye to get injured as well. This is worth the sacrifice. And he said we're in Neely. Luffy god man who I zoom in color up there he goes, because now I am into protection of someone who is more powerful than you more capable than you and
more dominant than you will ever be. Yeah, about chumps. Oh, when he been Molina, I am now in the protection of a law which is much more profound than you can ever imagine.
And then when he'd still persist, he goes Hello, I have nothing in [???]ter illa dziadek for Odin, Allah, He goes, listen, still Oh nephew. If you still want my protection, I'll give it to you. He goes no, I don't need your protection. So we see that this was a very difficult situation many of them are dealing with. There's still another generation that Abu Salah, Abu Salah, Abu Salah, remember they were amongst the early people who had migrated to Abyssinia. They also returned back and came back to Mecca.
Abu Salah went to Abu Talib, the uncle of the Prophet filati saddam
and sought out sought out his protection said I will call him Can I have your protection?
And he said absolutely you are most definitely in my protection.
when somebody found out when some of the people from Bahamas zoom, who are the people that Abu Salim I belong to, when they found out that Abu Talib had granted him his protection. They came to him and they said yeah, Batali. mhada Manasa. Mina in Africa. Mohammedan. from Allah Cavalli sahibi, notturna alumina, he goes look upon him, you have protected and stopped us from laying a hand on your nephew, Mohammed. That's understandable. He's your blood. He's your people. So you've protected him and haven't allowed him allowed us to lay your hand on him. We understand that we can rationalize that. But what's the deal with you granting protection to somebody who belongs to our
family, one of our people, let us deal with him the way we need to deal with him. He abandoned our religion. He ran away from here. He's been a fugitive. Now he's come back let us deal with him. This ain't no business. This isn't concern you.
Let us take care of our own internal affairs. What have you done? So
Abu Talib says to them in no is the is the jarabe what we're even at? He goes, listen, number one, he asked for my protection. I'm a man of honor. He asked for my protection, I granted it to him. Secondly, he says, look, we do have an extended relation. He is the son of my sister, which basically he's saying that it's a way of saying you have a fee, saying somebody is someone's nephew from the brother side. Oh, son of my brother, is a way of saying you are very closely related to me. You are the son of my sister is another figurative expression thing. Somebody has a distant relation. He goes, No, he is distantly related to me. Number two, he asked for my protection. And I
granted it to him. What in an alum, I'm not even an OT. Now, he, he goes in if I wasn't going to grant him my protection, then wants to say I would no longer protect my own nephew Muhammad. I no longer be a man of any type of honor. No dignity, no honor. So I I'm sorry, I have to do what I have to do.
Now when Abu Talib is actually having to defend himself, and you have to understand how bizarre this situation is. Remember, keep in mind, things in Macau are very heated things in Macau are very bad. Abu Talib Yes, has just suffered through three years of isolation and boycott. But I will tell him is still considered a leader in the, in the eyes of the people of Makkah. In the eyes of Makkah in the eyes of Arabia, he's still a great leader. And now you have these people here arguing with Abu Dhabi.
And that's, that's very out of character for a lot of these people.
Abu lahab is sitting nearby. Now remember what we love is Abu Dhabi labs, a great villain. We've talked a lot about him.
of who love actually speaks up and he says yamashiro Quraysh. He goes, Oh people of Quraysh la mala has a shape.
He goes this elderly gentleman, The Statesman
Y'all have caused enough trouble to him for today. you've exhausted him. That's enough. Basically
That's enough. Y'all have said it. All you needed to say. And he goes on to say Martha Luna de la buena Alayhi. Fujiwara, the human being Oh, he goes, What's wrong with you?
Why do you keep attacking him? Why do you keep coming at him
and attack him attacking him and jumping on Him because He grants protection to somebody who belongs to his people. What do you think a leader is supposed to do? A leader protects his people. Somebody from his peoples come to him for protection. He's granted and protection. And you people keep coming at him like this.
So he says we're lucky. Nathan Tawana, olan aku Manama houfy Colima comma V. Hat Diablo mama Radha, he goes, You people will stop now.
Y'all will stop this now. or all of us.
And all of us is a huge statement on behalf of blue lab. Because what he means by saying all of us is even those of us who are opposed the opposition. Hey look, I've been with my brother Abu Talib and my nephew Mohammed since the very beginning of this thing, I don't like this. But at the same time y'all are getting a little out of line right now.
And so y'all will stop this or we will stand with a baton him in everything that he stands for. He couldn't be my power Murphy.
We will stand with him. Not only in this matter, but we will stand with him for in regards to everything that he stands for, until what he wants to happen ends up happening
to you think twice about this.
You go home and you chew on that for a little bit.
Now those people obviously they were already arguing with a Batali, but I will tell if it's a very gentle soul.
But now our beloved, a very fierce tongued man and somebody who's always usually in the opposition is now rebuking them reprimanding them. So they're back on their heels and they go about their way I will call him however sitting there you know, you can imagine kind of looking through the corner of his eye thinking this is interesting.
This is interesting. So their agent says I will talk to him says I will tell him things himself that you know, may it actually they even mentioned but none sorry for Mr. chakra who yeah about about they basically saying don't worry about that. We didn't mean to offend you will leave now.
sue for what can Allah who Mulligan one acid and Allah Rasool isolation for a koala Dalek so because I will laugh at always been against the prophets allottee settlement they wanted to keep things that way for Tommy arfi about Oliver Hina Samia who yaku Maya cool. Now Abu Talib is thinking this is very interesting. Could Abu lahab kinda be making his way over to decide after everything that's happened? Why Raja and Yoku Mama houfy, Shani Rasulullah, that even if he doesn't want to accept the religion of Mohammed, maybe he's not willing to stand up and defend Mohammed? Maybe. So the narration actually mentions that Abu Talib encourages Abu lahab at this particular time to support
the profits. A lot of these eliminates costs and to protect him and he recites some poetry to him, he goes right in the imraan abou Teva. I'm mu Luffy, Rosa t MA in yusaku, Alma Halima, he goes on to basically recite some poetry to him, where he basically is saying that look, there is a man, oh, boy,
that you are his uncle. And he stands alone, facing all these different types of oppression, and opposition, that will now this be the time that you will come to the aid and to the help of your own family. But then, of course, our Buddha basically tells them, he goes, whoa, take it easy there. I just didn't like them talking to you like that, because he talked to you today like that tomorrow, they talk to me like that.
So a Buddha goes about his way, but it's still a very interesting environment, that what I want to illustrate more than anything else, is that I want I want everyone to understand how in in negating, the boycott, basically ending the boycott, you have non Muslims, people who do not believe did not believing did not ever believe. You have them petitioning and campaigning to end the boycott. You have non Muslims, people who did not end up ever believing they didn't take their Shahada didn't accept Islam, till the end of their life. You have them granting protection to believers because of what's going on in McCain willing to grant them protection. The last incident that I want to mention
here, that is also very interesting in this regard is
At this point in time after the boycott ended, so you have to kind of understand what's happened in Mecca so far. What's happened in Makkah is, you know, just kind of to kind of browse through to kind of illustrate so you can appreciate how fatigued how exhausted somebody would be. Again, this is a tragedy. The tragedy is that we sit here in in, you know, in a temperature controlled room, on soft carpet.
Talking about very casually the suffering of the Sahaba in Makkah,
I realized this is still a blessing in a humble at some level, we're engaging in discussion on the zero, but we have to be cognizant of the fact
that do are we truly appreciating their sacrifice? Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu accepted Islam on the very the second day of Nobu of prophethood.
Abu Bakar laguan Oh, look what he's been through. All the early days of hiding out in secret and reaching out to people and slowly growing the numbers while ever being, you know, very cautious and apprehensive. Then eventually, when the message goes public, Abubakar, the alarm manual coming to the aid in the defense of the problem, only to be beaten into a coma.
And literally receiving we talked about an urgent receiving, you know, permanent scars and permanent damage even to his face.
To then witnessing the brutal murder, and killing and torture of innocent people all throughout America,
to then having to say farewell and goodbye to friends, brothers, sisters, family members, community members, brothers and sisters in faith and see them leave and depart off to a faraway land,
then to only turn around and then to spend three years in isolation and boycott.
Having to bury babies,
watching mothers born mourn the death of their infants. I mean, just imagine how how much a person can take the heartache that he's been through what he's seen what he's been through, what he's witnessed.
And try to imagine if you know you, you know how difficult it would be for someone
that you just don't wake up in the morning and just sort of brush up on it. He's a human being. He's a very soft hearted man.
So finally, Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala and who, with a very heavy heart,
tears in his eyes, a heavy heart.
He goes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he asks the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for permission
to also go and join the Sahaba in East Africa and
the prophets a lot. He said them again, obviously with a heavy heart
gives him permission, because he realizes nobody has stood firmer and stronger than Abu Bakar rhodiola. One was
but at the same time he realizes
what he's been through. So the prophets a lot of him gives him permission. Go ahead, you can go.
Baba karate along one who packs up his stuff. Leaves mica.
The narration says that he's actually traveled a day or two outside of Mecca
when he runs into a man by the name of Eben a Davina. Ignore Davina,
whose name is who belong to the tribe vannucchi Nana His name is a couple of different variations some evocati mentions his name as Hadith and suhaila mentioned as nameless Malik In either case, he is more popularly known as Abu Davina or actually even Davina Davina ne belongs to by Nuki, Nana boo ki Nana were qualified. They were basically brothers through treaty and alliance with the grace with brainwashing.
So that means that he was a leader of his people and his people had a pact and an agreement with the fresh. So therefore, even though doesn't mean I was a man with some influence in Makkah, because they didn't want to violate that pact because these were by Nuki Nana was a huge powerful tribe. And this was a source of Alliance and strength for both of them both tribes. And so if even Davina is a leader of his people, His Word is very respected and accepted. He runs into Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu sees him with his stuff. And he says, Where are you going? You know?
Where do you think you're going? You know Abu Bakar a very respectable man from God. He goes, where are you going? He says atherogenic
says my people left no choice but for me to leave.
My people forced me out. They made me leave meaning the conditions and situations what are the only
I've received great harm from my own people what they used to aleja and they've made lives they're very difficult for me. So I have no choice but to leave.
So, abundantly now hearing this he's shocked he goes Lima How could How is this even possible?
He go and then it goes on to say for logging in NACA letters inola ashira.
He goes, you are somebody who respects family.
What you ain't no Elena, why'd you help in all types of good causes? Whatever. Alan Maru for a taxable module, he goes, you do good things for society. You earn for those people who can't earn for themselves. He says energy alpha in McAfee, God. He goes, let's head back, you are in my protection. Now. Another narration even mentions,
so I'll talk about that at that particular time. So he goes that you come with me You're in my protection now. And one thing that's very interesting here as an observation is what Eben does he now says, to Abu Bakr, radi Allahu anhu, about Abu Bakar is very similar to what Khadija the Golan has said to the profits a lot he sell them when the profits a lot of him told her about receiving revelation and being very overwhelmed by this and being worried about how people would receive this and whether people would just you know even tolerate this or not. Khadija the loved one had said the same thing that the prophets a lot he said them that you are somebody who's so valuable to society
is community so beneficial to his people.
That How could the last panel ever let you just go to waste like that? Similarly here even who says double vichara the Allahu anhu No, no, no, you're very good person. We get loose people like you. Come on, you're in my protection. Let's go. So they come back to Makkah, even who enters into the harem takes Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu takes him by the hand and takes him into the huddle
and then actually addresses the people. And he says to them in the abubaker line, you lie your
courage. A man like Abu Bakar cannot be allowed to leave, let alone be ousted from where he lives. A man of the caliber and the character of aboubaker a man who is such a source of benefit for his community should never be allowed to leave. He's an asset to his community, let alone be ousted by his own people. Then he says to them he reprimands the people of the leaders of prey she goes a taco De La Jolla, Nick Saban. Madam. Are you telling me that you guys are taking out from your city from your community, a man who will go and earn on behalf of people who don't have anything? Well? Yes, he will. rahang he respects family, we act Milan Cal. He carries and lifts those people who can lift
themselves. We actually believe he honors and dignifies his guests when you are in Orlando I will Huck and he helps him the cause and the aid of truth.
he says to announce it to the people of Makkah, that From this day forth, he says yeah marshadow Qureshi any other agenda to be kochava I have granted my protection to the son of a Boko Haram Abu Bakr, Salah yards Illa behave, nobody should approachable but can unless they have good intentions. Nobody said approachable vaca with any type of bad intentions for Khufu
for Khufu, and everybody hands off when it comes Abubakar nobody likes to lay a finger on Abu Bakar
now the narration goes on to say
that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu, goes back home, settles back in he's very relieved. He's very relieved, because deep down inside, he didn't want to leave mecca
for no other reason than Muhammad Rasulullah Salallahu Salam is in Makkah, and we know from the life of a worker of the Allahu anhu nothing was dear to him. Then the prophets Allah, Allah, the prophets allottee some says think about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying about a man. I paid everybody back but I can never pay Abu Bakar back for what he did for me. Allah will have to pay him back on my behalf. Think about Muhammad Rasul Allah saying that about a man
think about the quality and the caliber and think about the hate of a person about whom the prophets a lot he said him says that if I was not the holly lava life I wasn't best friends with Allah.
Then I would have most definitely without a doubt that the How to abubaker kalila I would have taken Abu Bakar to be my very best friend.
Think about that man. What that means. So Abu Bakr radi Allahu I knew deep down inside wanting to be able to stay in Mecca and just kind of looking for an excuse.
So now that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu comes back and settles back in.
He goes to his home and everybody
About the Allahu anhu was a very devout person.
So we hear about the activism of Abu Bakar the loved one who the social services of Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu through the testimony of Eben Davina, but Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu is the ultimate role model because he balances his social and community activism and social services along with
along with spirituality, and prayer and worship and Urban Decay 20 an hour.
So Abu Bakar, the long runway, the daily ritual that not only just in the night, particularly during that I but even throughout the day, he had times of the day times of the night where he would pray.
He would make salah and he would recite the Quran within Salah, and it said about Abu Bakr radi Allahu Khanna, Rajan Iraq, Organa radula, Rukh Khan, that Ripon, he was a man who was very soft hearted.
He was a very, very soft hearted man. And so when you would recite the Quran, when you would pray, he not only himself would cry, but he would recite the Quran in such a way he would make do it in such a way in the night, that it would make somebody else cry, just witnessing and just listening to it.
And so Abu Bakar the loved one used to like to pray right outside of his home, kind of like on the porch, on the porch of his home used to like to pray out there just to be able to be outdoors and just experience of weather and just kind of enjoy his prayer.
And it said that what ended up happening was men and especially women and children would kind of gather around whenever he would start to pray and would listen, and he would cry.
The leaders of grace started to see this and they got very, they were troubled by this they were bothered by this. And he said this is a huge problem. What are we going to do about this?
He's gonna he's gonna you know, cause out to put all types of ideas he's gonna have it have an effect on our women and children. So but they know at the same time, they can't really lay a finger on the A lot of money anymore because of Urban Decay now, so they go to even Davina and they say that, you know, did you
give him your protection to be able to cause harm to us?
Did you give him your protection to be able to cause harm does?
He says What is he doing? He say Oh, he prays and he worships and he does all this stuff. And he he's causing a huge problem for us are women and children are all you know and then our our weak minded are all gravitating towards him.
So even though he now goes to Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu. And he says, Yeah, Baba curry in Isla Mujeres de to the omec waka curry who mecanica de antebi What was the Adobes alikum Inca fernhill beta wasafi Ma Ma. He goes Abubakar, I didn't give you my protection so that you would go and cause all types of harm to people. And you would you know make trouble for them. And now they come to me complaining to me, it was why don't you just go into your home and you can do whatever it is that you want to do inside of your home.
So there are two narrations. One narration actually says that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu generation basically ends right there in Abu Bakar gives him the response. One narration says that Abu Bakar the long one who actually does go inside of his home or when narration actually mentioned that he builds a little bit of an extension to his home, like almost like a musalla his own personal salon a place to pray, he constructs a little bit of an extension to his own, and he prays in there and the people still gather up outside of there and they go back to him and they complain again, and evidently not comfortable but kind of a long winded one says you got to stop this you got to put an
end to this. Abubakar the loved one who finally says to him
he says well, instead of me putting an end to what I'm doing, how about a route to our naked you work with our barbecue arena? I've caused you a lot of trouble I appreciate your help but I return your protection back to you I'm sufficient in satisfied and happy with the protection of the law alone. So he says to the Alia god he gets referred rather to who La La he says okay then return my protection back to me goes I returned it to you and even definitely now basically stands up amongst the people and he says Jamar shall operate in even a vehicle haha. But rodallega God for shut no combi sahibi come. He says that the son of Abu hanifa has returned my protection back to me. So
therefore you do with him, whatever it is that you want to do with him. It's between y'all. And it's between him now, I no longer play any type of role in this. And that basically is what ended up happening in that situation. So this is a
Little bit of, you know, some of the events that followed after the,
the prophet of Allah ceylonese. Him and the Sahaba, the believers had come out of the boycott in the valley. And these are some of the incidents that has happened at that time. But one of the key things that I wanted to illustrate is that the Muslims conducted themselves, they carried themselves, they remained in spite of being oppressed, tortured,
embattled, you know, in spite of all of that, they continued to be such a source of good and hate and benefit, that their benefit was undeniable in their own community. To the extent that people who did not believe in Allah did not accept Islam did not like the prophets a lot isms mission, and message, still felt obligated to support these people and protect these people and help these people.
And that really is a testament to the clock in the character, the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam, and also, to how firmly the Sahaba held on to, and how they practiced the character, the flock of the prophets all of a sudden, and how they implemented what the profits a lot of them taught them. And they were a source of benefit to their own community and society.
One that didn't agree with them, one that didn't even like them, one that would, that was violent and aggressive towards them, that at the end of the day, they would still grant their support to them. And they would stand against, you know, taking things too far against these people. And that really goes to show you something that really tells you a lot. And it shows us that our o'clock and our character, our manners, the way we conduct ourselves, and the the good that we bring to our community in our society, whether Muslim or non Muslim is the biggest statement of what we believe in. And it is the biggest proof about the validity and the benefit and the hate about of what we
believe in and what we advocate and what we propagate. And very important to understand that
it said about Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu that after he left, you know after he left to protection of urban delina it said literally within the next couple of days, Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu leaves his home. He's going towards the Kaaba towards a harem.
A young man like a street, just like like like a thug from the streets in Makkah walks up to Abu Bakr and you have to understand why Abu Bakr radi Allahu Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu is a man who's 50 years old, a very respected man of his people used to be viewed as a leader of his people.
This street thug from mucca walks up to Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu picks up a lot of dirt picks up a bunch of dirt and throws it on the head of a bobak
to insult him.
Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu walks by
with you know, he's got all this dust and his dirt on him. This man does boy walks up and these young man throws all this dirt on a bucket of the lung on his face and head and he keeps on walking. He doesn't say anything to this young man. Well, even Molina and Osman while are sitting there watching this, I will buckler, the loved one who turns to them and it goes a lot. Tom is now has a Sufi?
A lotta Rama. Yes. Now how the Sufi? He goes, do you see what this foolish young man does? How he disrespects his elders.
And they respond back by saying unto faltered alika BNF suka Baba.
They said, No, no, no, this young man didn't do anything to you. You've done this to yourself, Abubakar, you've put yourself in this situation. You've done this to yourself. I will walk around a loved one who says to himself, he just kind of says at that time, he says a Robbie mahila maka, ma ma ma ma ma ma, ma, ma ma.
This is my Lord, how patient and forbearing? Are you with your slaves? My Lord, how patient and forbearing? Are you? My lord? How patient and forbearing are you? Meaning that these people disrespect me?
Somebody disrespects me. And these people who are leaders, my peers say that I deserved his disrespect. And it's so enraging to me. I can't believe what I'm hearing. I can't stand what these people say what they think. But my Lord, my master,
you're the one who created these people, you sustain these people you provide for these people.
And they disrespect you. They refuse to believe in you how patient and forbearing you must be.
I marvel at that. And I remind myself by means of that
to just, you know, ignore these people, be patient with these people and let you deal with these people.
So we find
two things. Number one, like I mentioned previously, we learn from the prophets a lot is human to Sahaba, the Allahu anhu. That their character and their benefit to their people was so undeniable that even those who disagree with them could not deny the fact that these people were were of benefit to their communities. Number two, we see that through the most difficult of situations and circumstances, the way that the Sahaba great man like Abu Bakr, radi, Allahu anhu, the way that he stayed patient and stuck to his values
was by turning to Allah subhanaw taala by reflecting on the greatness of Allah, by reflecting on how merciful and patient Allah is with his slaves, and by reminding himself of that, he's able to himself, find some patient find some, find some patience, some comfort and solace. In that fact. We should all take this into account and reflect on this as well. Let's try to be a source of benefit to our communities as the greatest form of our power. And number two, when we are still faced,
when we are still dealt with,
you know, negative negativity,
and aggression, and opposition and hostility, then in those situations, again, we don't resort.
We don't abandon our values. We don't lower ourselves to that to those people's level. We don't resort ourselves to those types of tech tactics. Rather what we do in that situation is that we turn to a lot we find patience, comfort, solace, tranquility, with Allah subhanho wa Taala and reflect on the greatness of Allah. If I feel disrespected, imagine Allah
Who created these people who say such vile things about Allah, Who disrespect Allah who disbelieve in Allah, refuse to believe in Allah and he still feeds them.
He still feeds them, he still protects them, he still takes care of them. Think about how patient Allah subhanaw taala is and try to find some find some patience, some comfort, some forbearance and some solace in that regard. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that's been said and heard Subhana Allah He will be handy. So hi Nicola, whom we have Nick.
