shala continuing with our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a 02 number we're
in the previous session we talked about in the last couple of sessions actually, we've been talking about a very important, transitional and tragic time from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that was, um, when he was in the 11th, year of prophethood of preaching and teaching, the message of Islam, the prophets, a lot of the sermons about 50 5051 years old. And at this time, of course, we discussed this over the last couple of weeks, he very tragically suffered the loss of his beloved wife of over 25 years howdy Giada de la Mancha. And he also lost his uncle Abu Talib, who was the man who had raised him from the age of eight. And so and these tragedies occurred back
to back in some narrations, it says as close as five weeks apart six weeks apart, and at the most nominations mentioned, maybe two, two months apart. So it was very, very tragic time from the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
And one of the things that I mentioned in the previous session was that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he mentions in a narration, he actually these are from this is from the word from the words of the prophets a lot. He said them himself, the prophets a lot. He said, I'm said, my knowledge curation shape, and Accra who who had that amount of autonomy, that Quraysh had not done anything very egregious, like they they had not personally, you know, got gotten physical and confrontational with me, until they passed away. My son aspiration car in him, or one nation says guy or 10 had that goofy avatar on him that Quraysh was still somewhat cautious and careful.
These at least think twice about taking very drastic steps against the prophets a lot. He said, I'm the prophet SAW some says in the first person against me until Abu Talib passed away, because once a bill Dudley passed away, basically, as far as the police were concerned, the protection of the prophets allottee to them was gone. He was he was basically open game Open Season at this point. And so this was a very difficult time from the, from the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. We talked about how immediately after the passing of Khadija Abu Talib, the prophets, a lot of them didn't even come out of his home for a few days. And he was overall a little more quiet. And it took
them a little while to kind of recover and overcome this great tragedy that he had experience. But nevertheless, eventually the profits a lot of a sudden got back to preaching and teaching the message of Islam and doing what needed to be done.
But at that time, because of otolith no longer being there, and these people have praised, the way they looked at it, the way they thought was that they were free to do whatever they wanted. Now with the profits a lot he saw them, they went on the attack, they went on the offensive, and they basically removed all types of hesitation caution, they threw everything out the door. And they basically came out the profits a lot of the time as hard as they could. And there are some very shocking incidents that are narrated to us authentically, that occurred in the aftermath of the passing of Khadija bartolome some of these might be familiar to a lot of folks because we might have
heard them you know, here and there as isolated incidents. But what needs to be really be understood is that all of this was happening all at once one after another, this became a daily event a daily activity, a daily experience for the profits a lot he said, um, so when you kind of look at it in the grand scheme of things, and you kind of put it into the timeline and the context and understand all of this was happening in close succession. Every day something like this was going on, you can you can just start to try to imagine the how much you would wear someone out how difficult it would be, how tragic it would be how would start to wear on someone. And so I wanted to share some of
One of the narration says even as Hawk relates materasso law, he's a
Some female Belladonna bilwa. Leading Lolita what may have been colorful Abuja have been a sham that the profits a lot he said I'm literally a couple of days after his uncle and his wife, Khadija radi Allahu taala. And who had passed away the prophets, Allah him when he came out from his home and he was walking by, as he was walking around MCI trying to maybe go and run some errands, take care of some responsibilities doing what needed to be done. Remember, he is now a single parent, he is a father, his children Fatima, the Allahu taala now was still very young. She was a little girl by all accounts. So he's a single father raising a little girl on his own by himself. So the prophets, a
lot of him goes out to take care of things. And he passes by what he'd been laid off, or may have been hauled off in Abuja, who were sitting there. So instead of just, you know,
consoling him, instead of just offering their condolences, you know, we heard about your wife, we heard about your uncle, we're very sorry. That's expecting too much from them. At the very least, just them at least looking the other way and saying, you know, what, why don't we just lay off for a couple of days, gives the guy a little bit of a chance to kind of recover. The narration says for Hama zoo, they started taunting him West as an OBE. And they started mocking him and making fun of him and ridiculing him, because of his loss that he had suffered for Gaza, who delic and it bothered the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And I want us to appreciate this fact it bothered the profits allow
me to know
that there's nothing wrong with the fact that something troubles someone, someone is troubled by something bothered by something disturbed by something. You know, a lot of times when we talk about this, and I've said this multiple times, when we talk about, you know, how we react to adversity or difficulty, and we say, Oh, you know, eemaan means nothing bothers you. Nothing makes you sad, nothing gets you down. That's not realistic. That's not even human.
But Allah subhanho wa Taala acknowledges the suffering of the Prophet ceylonese the pain of the prophets alarmism, it bothered him. But the question is, how do we respond? How do we how does one respond in that situation? How does one react to such behavior such treatment? That's the question at hand. So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it bothered him for unzila Allahu taala, he danika Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed as a response to that sort of tool and am I in number 10 Allah says Wanaka This is the Abu Suleyman public
welaka This is the Abu Salim in public, that without a doubt, they mocked other messengers that came before you.
they mocked other messengers that came before you and you know there's something very profound in a lot telling the prophets a lot. He said, I'm consoling him by saying that the other messengers just like you were mocked before you just as you are being mocked now. Because it gives it makes a person realize that they're not alone.
that they're not alone. Ally selling him you belong to the fraternity, the Brotherhood of prophets. You belong to the group of mbn Russell, and they suffered in the struggle, then they were taunted. And they were tormented by their people, oftentimes. And so similarly what you're dealing with is not something that never happened before. So not only does it control you and knowing that I'm not alone, somebody else has struggled just as I'm struggling. Secondly, it tells you that somebody else before us struggled in the same way, which raises the question creates the curiosity. Well, what happened with them? So if there were messengers and prophets before Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu
Sallam and they were also taunted and teased and mocked and made fun of by the people before just as the prophets a lot of a sudden was being taunted and teased now, but what was the outcome of that?
You don't just like if you come down with some sickness, some illness, and somebody comes to you and says, You know what, don't worry about this. This is you know, this occurs and other people you know, that brother or that sister, that person that person they were also diagnosed with this issue with this disease this problem. Your first question is well, what happened with them? What was the outcome?
So let's go to the problem is creating that question in the mind of the prophets a lot. He said, Well, what happened with them? And that was kind of analysis for how carbon levena socceroo Minh home, maca newbie assassin for half copy Nadine Asahi Roman whom ma connubia says universe says that the same way and the things that they used to say and the way that they used to mock the prophets and the messengers of Allah, those same things would happen to them.
Just as they would mock and gear and torment the messengers of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala would cause for them to be tormented in this life.
tragedy would afflict them. The curse of Allah would come upon them, those people used to be ruined, because of how they used to mock and tease and gear and make fun of the messengers of Allah.
Meaning Allah took care of them. Allah had took care of the messengers, Allah had their back in the last panel which Allah, you know, made an example out of those people who mocked and taunted and jeered and, and messed with the messengers of the past. So same way you need to have that same trust and faith in reliance upon Allah subhanaw taala and know that Allah will take care of you.
This is, this is the son of Allah. This is a tradition of the prophets. This is part of the sin of the prophets. It's a tradition of the prophets, that they would be messed with by the people. But Allah subhanaw taala would take care of them as a response of that.
So this idea was revealed at that time, because as the profits a lot easson was walking by.
It really bothered him.
It troubled him. And Allah subhanaw taala revealed this idea to control the profits a lot he sort of one other narration says Allah revealed the IOA coolibah to Solomon publica for sobre la makueni boo, while Uzu hattah uttanasana.
Allah said that the messengers, before you all Mohamed were rejected were called liars for Southern Juan amaku the Boo, but they were they were patient in regards to being slandered and rejected and refused by their people. What Ooh, and they were in fact, they were harmed.
So their people rejected them. They were patient, they were steadfast and then they were harmed. On top of that,
what we'll do hit that uttanasana But eventually, eventually, the time came where Allah subhanaw taala says our help came to the rescue. Whenever de la de Cali Mattila, there is no changing of the words of the proclamations of Allah. This is this is the decree of a law, that decision of a law, there's no changing it, a law will look after you and take care of you. What about the jack? I mean, never emotionally.
That this is exactly why the stories of the prophets of the past have been related to you. This is why you have been told about the messengers of the past so that you can find comfort, solace, inspiration, motivation and steadfastness in their stories. And so this is our last panel what Allah was fortifying and reaffirming the prophets along the center.
There are some very, very tragic incidents that are related from this time period. One narration mentions of this particular time,
that one time the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
one time the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was praying in the Kaaba, he was praying in the huddle.
And Abuja Hall was sitting with some of the other leaders of Pradesh.
And they started to kind of point out the prophets, a lot of them and look at each other and start to kind of mock the prophets a lot each of them and one of them challenged Abuja has that I bet you wouldn't go and do something to him. As he's praying over there. Remember, this is after the passing of Abu Talib. So Buddha goes really you're gonna challenge me? He said, Yeah, I challenge you.
So the narration says that. Abu Jamal gets up, goes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he takes like his scarf that he was wearing. And he puts it around the neck of the prophets. He loves him from behind and he starts to kind of choke him and strangle him.
Abu Bakar radi Allahu taala and who was there in the harem at that time comes in tackles Abuja to the ground knocks him to the ground.
And other people were shocked at the same time by seeing just trying to strangle someone to death like that in public just just unprovoked
and Abubakar radi Allahu taala on who seizing the situation, he turned to everybody else who was sitting there who was sitting there, and he said the words that were said by the gentleman alley for our Colorado minuman Alley fill out. The Quran tells us that that believing man from the people of his own when they threatened to kill musala his salon, that man stood up amongst his people
yet to imana who he was hiding his faith in his eemaan he had not disclosed to them made it public that he had believed in the message of musante Samba when he heard them plotting and planning the assassination of Mashallah Islam. He could no longer hold his tongue and he stands up amongst his people. And he says a taco to Luna Romulan and your cooler up via la vaca de Jacksonville begging at Morocco
Welcome to Java can be begun it mirabito there are you are you really trying to sit here and plot, plot and plan the murder, the killing of a man who just simply says that my Lord My master is Allah and he has come to you with proofs and evidences backing into factor. One who can even follow he can.
If he's lying, his lie be upon him. He'll be exposed for what he is.
What he what he saw the Can you see the combat will know the area.
But if he is truthful, and you oppose him, and you reject Him, and you try to kill him, and he is truthful in what he says, then what He has promised you as an outcome of your choices and your actions that will also come back to bite you.
So you'd be very careful about what you're talking about doing here.
And so in that even the the serum that's what I tells us that when they when this man stood up because he could no longer hold his tongue. And he stood up and he said this in front of his people, they killed him. They murdered him the martyrdom abubaker the Allahu Allah who stands up pushes abou jealousy, and he says a taco to Luna Rajan. And your cooler obeah la vaca de Jacksonville begging it Morocco, you want to kill this man just because he says allies, my lord.
And some of the scholars even explained that whether Abu Bakar the Allahu taala on who had you know, those ioutdoor revealed or he had memorized that at that point or not. But this is from the virtues of some of the Sahaba that these are consistent qualities of faith any man that repeat themselves manifest themselves in every generation of the ummah. And every time at every place, there will be people of faith any man who will stand up and defend the truth, Abubakar, the Allahu Allahu is one of those people
that the Quran like almost intuitively flows from his tongue. It's a quality of a person's eema.
And so boubakeur, the Allahu taala, who defended the profits a lot isn't that one time. There's another narration yet about another incident, that was also very unfortunate and very tragic of the same, you know, nature that describes that one time the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Ani, who was send them was, again, once again, he was praying in the huddle.
And the Prophet of Allah Salafi someone down into sujood. And again, there was this type of mocking engineering and, you know, kind of challenging one another, and Abu Jihad goes, and he scoops up, the innards, like the intestines, the stomach, the innards of a camel. So right outside the hut on the camel must have been sacrificed or, you know, slaughtered or whatever the case was. And so when they would cut an animal, again, when you typically slaughter or cut an animal, you know, when you cut it open, you take the innards, and you remove them. So these innards of this camel had been removed. And I mean, we're talking about a camel here. If you've ever seen, you know, the the
innards of even a goat, and then a cow and then imagine a camel, it's huge. It's heavy, and quite disgusting. And so he goes, and he scoops this up,
and he comes inside the machine, the profits, a lot of humans doing long, extended sujood, praying to Allah connecting with Allah, seeking comfort and solace and alone,
implementing the advice that he was given to buy a lot.
Well couldn't mean sRGB and
not become a communist. I mean, do sujood pray to Allah,
fall down Institute before a lion, Allah will heal your heart, Allah will remove your pain in your difficulty.
So find comfort and solace in putting your head down on the ground before Allah. And so the prophets a lot of someone's doing that goes comes in when narration says he actually send somebody to go and grab these innards and come and dump them on the back of the prophets, a lot of them. So a couple of people walk in carrying them and they come and they dumped it dumped it onto the back of the profits, alarmism
Alou and when they did this,
as usual, when they did this, it crushed the profits a lot of them under its weight. It was extremely heavy, and the profits allowed him became pinned to the ground.
With this on his back, unable to get up and remove it.
And then some of them started to laugh and point
and it started to become a scene.
Fatima radi Allahu taala and the daughter of the prophets a lot of them she was a child at this time.
She enters a machine and sees her father pinned against the ground trying to get up
with these the innards of
camelon is back, pinning him down.
And everyone's laughing and pointing and she rushes up tears and writes screaming, when there isn't actually mentioned that she was screaming,
what is wrong with you people.
And she comes in, she pushes on the innards to kind of like tilt them over a little bit. And the profits a lot is him is able to kind of get up and remove them from his back.
And he gets up and he's completely, his clothes are ruined.
They're filthy, and they're dirty. Everyone's laughing and joking, he looks at the face of his innocent daughter, who's crying and terrified and scared.
And you can imagine how emotional somebody would be in that situation.
And so the prophets, a lot of them is angry.
And he's frustrated. And he's just upset. He's really troubled and bothered by this.
So the narration says, and there are multiple narrations to this effect.
That the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam looked up to the sky.
And he made da, and he said, Well, look, look what they do to me. Look how they treat me. For Chicago.
La he Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and the prophets, a lot of them complained about them.
And the narration says that jabril alehissalaam came down to the profits a lot. He said, Would you believe gibreel alehissalaam came down to the Prophet salami. So he said, Yes, O Messenger of Allah. And remember how the prophets allows him speaks about Djibouti rallies around he said, I have two friends. Later on, you will have two friends, two guys, I can depend upon the earth and two people like in to two guys that can depend upon in the sky. And he said, the guys in the sky that I can depend upon, are jabril and Mika.
And the guys that I can depend upon the earth or Abu Bakar, Rama
so Gabriel Ali Salam are very, the profits also met a very close relationship with Jubilee rallies and that like that our friends, like that have brothers.
So the prophets, he says, Yes, our messenger of Allah, what is wrong, I'm here for you. And the Prophet told him says, look, look what they've done. Look at my daughter cry.
What is wrong with these people?
And so you can imagine as well, the displeasure of a lot that, that that that descends upon a person who does this to the Messenger of Allah, the family of the Prophet of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam,
and how furious even Jabri like the even the angels of Allah, how, you know, they would be willing to do anything,
how they would snap to the command of Allah subhanaw taala to do something to somebody who would treat the Messenger of Allah in this way and incur the wrath and the anger of Allah.
And so gibreel on a Salaam
points to Walid bin mahira
and this part's very interesting, very fascinating, and also kinda scary.
And what this does is this shows us the status of the Messenger of Allah ceylonese to them in the eyes of Allah.
And what somebody invites upon themselves when they behave this way with the Messenger of Allah. Do you believe Alison points to an even Molina
for a Shara in a jelly he
generation says that he points to his his leg. He points to Djibouti Ali Salam points to the leg of Walid bin Molina.
He looks at the profits a lump sum he looks over at when he'd been moved on, he points to his leg. And he says cofina who
has been taken care of on your behalf.
Then he points to us who had been ill muttalib
and he points to his neck and he says Kavita, who has been taken care of for you.
Then he points to us what bin Abdullah Huth and he points to his head. This is that whole little click that group that gang those bullies. He points to this man as he had been up to Huth and he points to his head and he says, Kavita, who do you believe Ali Salaam to the Prophet tells them he says he's been taken care of for you.
Then he points to a heart It's been an item and he points to his stomach, his belly and he says Kavita, who has been taken care of for you.
And then they start to walk. Then he tells the prophet to love some walk with me on messenger of Allah walk with me Rasul Allah, and he starts to walk. And he passes by allows meanwhile
and he points to his
He points to his neck. And he says he's goofy to who has been taken care of for you.
The narration says, Not too long after that we'll even Lita
was passing by, which is walking around taking care of business, not just today, normal day, he's walking around, and somebody was sitting and fitting and adjusting his bow and arrow.
Somebody was sitting and fitting and adjusting. Now kinda like cleaning your gun. This is Texas, right? So ever. All Muslims are like, Oh, brother, I don't know what you're talking about. Right? So. So there's a man standing sitting there adjusting and fixing and, you know, his bow and arrow.
And guess what happened?
It slips from his hand. In will he will even molinos walking by and it strikes him It hits him in his leg. The female artery it hits him in his leg.
And he literally falls and he bleeds out.
He falls to the ground and he bleeds out there onto the ground.
NARRATION goes on to explain.
That is what been up to Huth. He had pointed to his head.
He ends up developing some type of like, almost like,
like some type of a sore or a wound or
almost certainly like a tumor.
He develops like some type of a tumor or boil a boil on his head. He develops a boil on his head, disgusting and gross, and it becomes effect infected and he dies from it shortly thereafter, as what been taught him muttalib he goes blind.
He goes blind. And what the narration says is that
he one day is sitting in his garden, under a tree in the shade of the trees just kind of sitting there in his garden leaning against the tree, just kind of enjoying himself.
And he calls out to his families, his yada yada, yada yada. He says Where are my children? Come you're hurting? A lot that found Honey, why aren't you helping me? And they're sitting watching him. They're looking at him just kind of sitting there. Chilling, relaxing, leaning against the tree. Nobody's around them. And he's saying Why aren't you helping me? Why aren't you helping me? And he's freaking out. They're like, what's wrong? There's nothing wrong with you.
He says we'll deal to you. I'll be killed. I'll be murdered. And they were saying man Arashi. And we don't see anything. What are you talking about?
And he keeps on screaming and he keeps saying Jani Allah. Honey, why aren't you defending me?
he says I'm gonna die.
And they keep telling him we don't see anything going on. Why are you freaking out? And he says, I feel how the tongue will be shown for AI and AI. He says I feel like somebody is taking thorns and literally pushing them into my eyeballs. I can feel like somebody is taking needles like thorns from this tree, and they're pushing them into my eyeballs. You again, it's a very scary thought. but just try to imagine how much a person would scream and flop around and squirm. If you pin somebody down and push the needle into their eyeball.
How much would a person scream and yell and flop around? That's what this man was doing. Just sitting there in his garden.
And nobody's near him. And he keeps screaming and screaming and screaming. And everyone's kind of standing around him like what do we do?
What do we do? There's nobody here. Why are you freaking out?
And then finally, it mentions that philomela Zen. They kept saying mama Rashi and Manasa Philomena Zell this kept on going for a long time. For a few hours. This lasted. This man just keeps rising on the ground screaming and yelling,
face fading in and out of consciousness. And his family's just standing around them just kind of like, you know, biting under fingers. Like we don't know what to do. There's nobody here. You're just freaking out for no reason. gallica Hata amiata now, until eventually when it finally ended and subside, everything finally subsided, everything finally ended. He gets up and he says I can't see anything.
He went blind
and has been an icon.
Jubilee rallies from pointed to his belly and he said he's been taken care of for you. The narration says that. He developed some type of you know, a disease. It's I don't know.
What the exact you know, modern day medical equivalent of that would be the Arabic itself says for Aqa who allow will ask for fee botany he.
He got yellow water in his belly. Allah knows best exactly what that means exactly. But nevertheless he developed some type of illness in his stomach had Raja hoomin Fie, and says he eventually got so bad that he wasn't able to hold any food down. He would just vomit and vomit and vomit and vomit. And that kept going on for about a minute and he died from it.
What Amala Amala Aspinwall in for Vina, ma Hua, Danica Yeoman, it de la Fiera de shibli cotton Hata interrupts minha fermata minha,
about Allah Azza wa ala describes that he was just normal walking around minding your own business.
And then he got struck in the head with something like a thorny branch or something like that and got stuck in the head. And it gave him a wound in his head. And it eventually, you know, became infected and infested until he eventually died from that wound in this head.
In the narration describes that this happened with all of these people in the same way.
So these are some very tragic incidents
that occurred in the aftermath of the passing of Khadija, the Aloha, the passing of Abu Talib, the prophets, a lot of them being grief stricken.
And these people decided that they didn't want to let up. These people decided that they didn't want to stop what they were doing. So they started mocking the prophets a lot. He said, I'm teasing the prophets a lot. He said, I'm troubling the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and Allah subhanaw taala took care of them in this fashion in this manner, that we just talked about. Similarly, at the same time, Allah subhanaw taala You know, it comforted the prophets, a lot of them through different means, came to the rescue of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So some of the narrations actually described this, that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu aleyhi, who has sent him in one of these incidents and occasions where they were like, pushing him around and physically taunting him and mocking him and ridiculing him and his, you know, his his children are crying yet seeing this. He's already heartbroken and then they just will not let up they will not stop. Then one day the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very upset and very angry.
Throughout the Allahu taala Abdullah bin Machado de la cuando says in operation lama starsat, Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam wa upto one in Islam, that one day when they just would not let up. Forget about believing they just will not let up off the profits. A lot of them they just kept going at him non stop that the Prophet of Allah salon he said them looks up to this guy and he makes two and he says I love my Niala him be somewhere in Casselberry Yusuf,
he says Allah helped me against them, helped me against them.
Be severe and severe use of with seven years of drought, just like the seven years of drought that were given at the time of use of Valley husana.
So the Prophet of Allah syllogism says this.
The narration says for a Saba tomb senate when
a drought occurred that year, and severe famine came upon them for his solution.
Everything all their food and water resources became exhausted, had a Kalou LG firewall Mater. And eventually such circumstances came upon the people of Makkah that they began to eat
carrion, dead animals that it got so bad animals were even dying and dropping dead that if they would come across and walk across a camel that had dropped dead and died a day ago, from the heat and the drought and the famine that they would see then
they would basically go there, cut up the animal and eat an animal that had been lying around dead.
For days, they started eating dead rotting animals.
hotter and hotter in a head of uncanny Rama Bina who have been semicha here to do harm in Europe. And that's what he talks about that some of them such severe starvation and hunger and famine and malnutrition came upon these people, that it was almost like a cloud was hanging over them.
It was affecting them. The whole society was
but the narration says that Abou soufiane comes to the profit of a loss allottee film and with him there was a delegation from the people of Morocco
and he comes to the profits a lot he said I'm and he says yeah Muhammad. He says oh Muhammad in Nikita Romo Anika Morita Ramadan,
he goes, let me get this straight. You've been telling us that you've been sent as a mercy upon mankind. What in Nepal Macaca were in a coma aka Kahala coup. And your people are dying and suffering. They're dying like animals in the streets. Further Allah, Allah who made to offer them, ask your God to alleviate the suffering.
I mean, it's really bizarre.
It's really, really it reminds you of the story of Musa alayhis salam when Pharaoh outcomes them for Santa Elena tufan Well, Gerard welcome Well, what we're done, I asked him for solid,
that when these different tests and trials came upon fiddletown and his people locust and frogs and blood and all of these things came upon them, for us to come to musante salaam and say, Oh, so please ask your Lord your Rob to remove the suffering from the people. So abusive young comes to the profits, a lot of him says your people are suffering make dua for them.
And of course the Prophet of Allah salons he was extremely merciful. For the arrows Fulani sallallahu alayhi wa sallam first who Elijah so the prophets Allah sent me to offer them said Allah please alleviate remove their suffering.
And narration says it immediately started to rain
for us baccata Allah himself
and it rained for seven days straight.
In rain for seven days straight. It had been a famine, a very severe drought and famine. So rain for days and days and days and days.
And now these people come back to the profits a lot.
They ridicule they mock they torture they persecute
but when it comes to like asking for favors, Burger King, right avature way they keep coming back over and over again. They come back to the profits a lot of something What do they say? Well, first second, natsuko throttle moto. Now they say oh, you know what? It's raining a little too much. You think you can adjust it just a little.
They're saying it's raining too much. And that's when the profits a lot he sent them made the dryer which is a prophetic and supplication taught to us by the prophets, a lot of them that is a dryer that can be made when it rains very severely that the profits a lot of these homes have a lot more mahalo Elena, Willa Alena
a love mahalo Elena, which literally translates to our law around us not on top of us, or law around us not on top of us which is an Arabic expression for single Allah make it rain for our benefit, don't make it rain to destroy us.
Don't destroy us through the rain but make it rain in a form that is beneficial for us.
Fun hydrati Sahaba 200 ce II for soclean NASA hola hum and Subhana Allah the narration says that the the rain started to move the clouds started to push aside from on top of the head of the profits allottee center.
So the whole sky was covered with these like rain clouds, heavy clouds, and all of a sudden the clouds started to break open from the spot where the profits a lot of them was standing. And it kept opening from there until they finally the rain clouds went a little bit outside of the you know the urban area of Mecca where the fields in the pastures were and that's why the extended duration of the DA the profits of polysomes. This Allahumma Academy was there RB Wellbutrin elodea T one my nabooti szegedi that the Prophet of Allah ceylonese himself Oh Allah make it roll on the excuse me make it rain on the pastures the fields Come on the pastures and fields with the Rabo Allah make it
rain upon the hills in the mountains. What will tune in Odia to Allah make it rain within the inside part of the valley. Well my name is szegedi Ola make it rain on the roots of the trees so that the trees will rate will grow. But remove the head from the remove the rain from the heads of the people so that their neighborhoods in their homes and things like that don't get flooded. their homes don't come caving in. their roofs don't fall in and the rain literally parted. The clouds parted outside, and it rained outside of MCI in the mountains and in the valleys and in the fields in the pastures and so all everything was restored.
And that's where the Sahaba radi Allahu taala on him. Abdullah bin Mr. Older the Allahu anhu in narrating the story, he says then he recited actually when relating this story when he tells this part of the story
he recited the ayah from the Quran. In Kashi fuller either be hollyland in a coma.
In Kashi fula either be hollyland that we are removing the punishment for you for just a little
meaning you've been given right now, but this is temporary in nicoma doing because you people are gonna go right back to doing what you did before. And that's exactly what happened when they got the rain. And then they complained about the rain being too much. And that was just to do, they went right back to persecuting and taunting and mocking and killing and torturing and tormenting, they went right back to business.
And that's where I've done I've been much older, the Allahu taala on who he does. Tafseer he gives his own thoughts and reflections says, Let me tell you what happened for I do for cafaro. They did go back to doing what they did before and they continue to persist in their disbelief in rejection, towards the Prophet of Allah ceylonese him towards Islam. For all Hebrew in a yarmulke Yama and their punishment was removed from them only till the Day of Resurrection. In another narration Abdullah bin Masuda the Allahu taala, who says for Oviedo, Li Yomi Bader
their punishment was removed from them until the day of the Battle of butter which we will eventually talk about, what does he mean by that, that the punishment was halted upon them till the Day of bother when we study the Battle of button will better understand what that means. And then he said either about the day of judgment or even on the day of bother that our last panel which Allah said yo ma novelties Botha shuttle Cobra in Amman, Taka moon
Yama novelties you that be very weary and be very careful that our day is coming nubble to the shoe that Allah subhanaw taala said we will snatch you, we will grab you back or shuttle Cobra with a very terrible reckoning.
We will snatch you, we will grab you we will crush you with a terrible attack, a huge attack in the moon. We will avenge. We will avenge you for what basically we will. It's very interesting into farming means like to event something. And what is Allah subhanaw taala saying what do you mean we will event it's kind of an Arabic expression, a strong expression for saying you will get the consequences you will you will reap what you've sown. It's an Arabic expression for saying you will read what you saw. But at the same time, it also has that very literal meaning to it, that we will avenge the honor and the dignity and the D.
The honor and the dignity and the respect of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu. If you abuse him, you curse him, you harm him. You mock him, you ridicule them, you torment him, you persecute him, and the believers, oh, it won't go unrewarded. You'll get exactly what you got coming to you, you'll be you'll get exactly what you deserve. In nomina Freeman.
And so this also occurred at that time shortly after the passing of you know, Khadija and Abu Talib, and that these events were occurring. So one of the other narrations from even though about sort of the Allahu talanoa he says that job was Sofia Nina rasulillah. He salatu salam yesterday terminal Jor Abu sufian when he came to the Prophet salons him saying please make Darfur rain. People are dying. He said the unknown lamb big to Shay hon Leanna homeland big Lucy and Hector Ahluwalia is a bit dumb.
very shocking, he said, because such a situation had come upon these people that they were literally taking wool.
They will take wool,
like the wool from a sheep, they will take wool and they would dip it in blood, they would cook it on top of fire and then he would eat that.
That's the situation they had reached. And so the Prophet of Allah, Allah is going to make dua for them and of course that was removed and alleviated as we talked about, but Allah subhanho wa Taala says about this in the Quran, Allah cada hudna humble adab Wanaka hudna home Villa dab in Surah Surah Surah, number 23. Allah says, we, we snatched them, we afflicted them, we punish them. We sent a punishment upon them for Mr. kamuli, robbing him.
But it did not change their the way that they perceive their Lord. It had no impact and no effect on them. on my own. They did not humble themselves before their Lord and had no effect on them such a terrible punishment where they're eating wool.
They're drinking blood of animals, dead animals. I mean, think about how depraved a person has to be how desperate a person has to be to do something like that. But it did not affect them spiritually.
In the least bit
all of this is going on, you know, the they go through all this difficulty and adversity, the prophets Allah He sent me so compassionate, so merciful, that he needs to offer them even. But even at this time, you know, they once again go back to what they were doing before they go right back to their unfortunate practices of you know, taunting the prophets a lot. He said I'm mocking the believers, tormenting them torturing them, that Allah subhanaw taala consoled the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once again, by telling the Prophet of Allah salallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Quran. This is from the end of sorrow to hedger.
This is from the conclusion of similar to sort of behavior, where Allah subhanaw taala tells the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, at the end of that surah about this difficulty that he's facing with these people. He told the prophets a lot he said them.
He said first, that would be my tomorrow. We'll read the onion machine. First that
you stick to you keep doing what you've been told to do. What are the uninitiated kin? These people who associate partners to allegis ignore them? In NACA, fe NACA, almost as in these people that mock you and make fun of you. We will take care of them for you on your behalf. cafe Naka, we will take care of them for you on your behalf. And Latina Yaga Luna ma la de la hora for Sophie Allah moon, these people who make other partners and deities with a lot, you know, what's the significance of this and I number 96 of this photo, when Allah subhanaw taala in this surah number 15 I am number 96. When Allah subhanaw taala tells the prophets a lot of them that they associate other partners
with a law. Why does the law mentioned that what is relevant to the context here? Allah is telling the prophets allottee some that look how offensive they are towards Allah. Allah created them. Allah feeds them, Allah sustains him. Allah protects them. Allah has given them everything that they have. And they only turn around to associate partners to Allah, they disrespect the law. So don't be shocked by the fact that the disrespect to you, these people have no respect. These people have no dignity and honor. They disrespect the law. So of course they disrespect you. I live in a Luna Malanga, none of these people associate partners with the law for Sofia move, but don't worry very
soon, very soon these people will come to realize soon enough, rather so far, it's like soon enough, soon enough, these people will come to realize what they've done. And then Allah says something truly beautiful to the prophets a lot. He said him, he says, Well, apadana Allah moon, Anika de casa de Luca, be Maya Kowloon.
We know without a doubt, Allah says, Allah God.
We know for a fact we know without a doubt, unlucky God to soak, that your test becomes tightened. That it troubles you, it bothers you, it disturbs you. It upsets you what these people say.
But how do you that that we understand. And so just in and of itself, here, again, I'm going to come back to that same point, Allah acknowledges the pain of the prophets, a lot of them, we should not talk down to people who suffer who struggle. We shouldn't be high and mighty with people who are going through difficulty who are dealing with adversity. If they're a little down in the dumps, if they're a little bit you know, affected by it. If they're a little frustrated by it don't don't talk high and mighty to people. Rather you should have him on you should have to walk with this is a weakness and faith.
Really, is that what a lot of the profits allow the seller?
Is that what a lot of the profits a lot of them No, he said No, I understand your pain.
Unless hunger problem I understand your pain, I recognize your pain.
I justify your pain.
I acknowledge it. I understand.
It is validated by Allah.
We have to understand that so if we ever are dealing with adversity and difficulty, no that understand, believe that Allah knows our pain. He understands our suffering.
He validates the fact that yes, I am in grief, I am in sadness, I am in sorrow. I am in difficulty. I am troubled by something. And if you ever have the opportunity to be there for somebody else, don't talk down to them. Don't be high and mighty to them. don't preach to them.
don't preach to them. But put an arm around their shoulder and say, I know it's difficult
It's okay I understand. It's alright.
Well a katana Allah Monica de casa de Luca Maya Polo.
But after acknowledging the pain and the suffering, how do you remedy it? How do you fix it?
These people are going to keep doing what they're doing but how can I personally recover from this for some Arabic
for some Arabic,
praise and glorify your Lord.
See comfort and solace with Allah. See the name of Allah share a private intimate moment with the law for some Arabic. Welcome, Mina Sajid in,
in falling to sujood before Allah, pray,
what a good robuck
worship your Lord hedayati Acharya clean, until reality comes to you.
The truth comes to pass the reality comes to you and in the Arabic language, it's also an expression of, you know, passing away and leaving this world. And basically what Allah is very subtly telling the prophets have not explicitly because this isn't the time, but very subtly. What Ally's implying to the prophets a lot of the time is you have the station of new Buddha of prophethood.
This comes with a little difficulty.
And this difficulty might not end today or even tomorrow.
You might continue to deal with adversity and difficulty till your last day.
Because that's a sacrifice that needs to be made for the guidance of mankind.
But you keep praying and worshiping to Allah, Allah will be there for you. Allah will take care of you, Allah will heal your wounds, a little strengthen your heart and your resolve. You keep putting your head down before a lot because every time you touch your forehead to the ground, when you lift it back up, your heart has been healed, your heart has been strengthen your resolve has been restored.
So you keep doing that.
Until finally it's your time to go back and meet with Allah. And then it'll all be worth the trouble.
The lesson from today, the primary lesson that I want us to take from today's class, is understanding that in following in the footsteps of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. As believers as advocates, as representatives, propagators of the message of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
the character of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we also have to understand and realize may We ask Allah for raffia he always told us to ask Allah, the prophets, a lot of them always taught us to ask Allah for peace and comfort and protection. From difficulty in adversity. We don't sit here and ask Allah for difficulty, but at the same time, as believers, especially when we decide to stand up and represent and preach and teach the message of the prophets allottee send them to all of mankind and humanity and be representatives of the legacy of Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam, we also have to be aware, be conscious of the fact that will come with some sacrifices. But I'm okay with that.
Because my beloved messenger Muhammad Rasul Allah at some sacrifice and suffered a lot more than what I'm dealing with. And he stood tall and he stood strong,
and Allah was there for him. I'm also going to stand strong and stand tall.
And I will lean on the same resources, I will take advantage of the same resources that Allah bless the profits all of a sudden with, I will pray to Allah, I will bow my head down before Allah I will worship Allah, praise and glorify Allah, and Allah will get me through the difficulty to like And finally, on that day, I can leave this world with the good news. While being I will be leaving this world departing this world, while being congratulated by angels in melodica of entrance into the gardens of Paradise, the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala being proclaimed for me throughout the heavens and the earth, but I'm gonna, I'm gonna stay strong until that time comes.
We all are proud to call ourselves the oma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
But you don't any worthwhile position comes with a little bit of responsibility and a little bit of sacrifice.
Let's try to remember that the next time we have an opportunity to invest a little something
to come closer to Allah, to be like more be to be more like Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam
to help humanity and mankind recognize a light in his messenger salani Center. May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that's been said and heard Subhana Allah He will be Hamdi subhanak Allah who will be Hambrick. Now shadow Allah Allah, Allah, Allah
