00:00:32--> 00:00:57

So inshallah continuing with our lesson on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam surah number, we're the last three weeks actually, we've been talking about a very difficult time from the life of the Prophet salatu salam, and subsequently for any believer, anyone who believes in Islam and holds a prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in very high beloved esteem and regard.

00:00:58--> 00:01:13

It's something that's even very difficult to talk about, and something that's difficult to even listen to and recount. And that is, I'm enclosing the year of grief and sorrow for the prophets a lot he said them, which by and far was the most tragic time of his personal life.

00:01:14--> 00:01:55

We talked about the events, the major events, where the Prophet of Allah ceylonese have suffered the loss of his beloved wife, Heidi God along with Allah and his wife of 25 years, the mother of his children, the first believer, his strongest supporter. Shortly thereafter, literally within weeks, the prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam had to face and deal with another great tragedy and loss. And that was the loss of his beloved uncle Abu Talib, who wasn't just an ordinary uncle, but rather was the man who had raised the prophets, a lot of them from the age of eight, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who was without parents without siblings, without even grandfather, by the age of eight, from

00:01:55--> 00:02:34

the age of eight and onwards. It was a Bhutanese who raised the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who meant everything to the prophets a lot. He said them and was basically the primary family member in the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam every major decision that he made in his life, as a young man to getting married throughout his entire life. It was the one that he spoke to the one that he consulted with the one that he sat with the one that he always turned to someone so that even when the message of Islam came, and he was sent on this mission by Allah subhanaw taala. It was even then in those circumstances, it was Abu Talib, who was the pillar of support for the Prophet

00:02:34--> 00:03:12

sallallahu sallam, and the one who defended the prophets, a lot of them through thick and thin. And as we talked about, you know, the primary position of the scholars and historians is that I will call him did not accept Islam before he passed away. Nevertheless, Abu Talib stood by the sight of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam constantly voiced his support for the prophets alongside them, and made the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as worryfree as possible from an attack and from persecution from the people of Makkah from kurush. So that the prophets a lot of them could continue with his mission. And the prophets, a lot of them suffered the loss of this man who was so important to him.

00:03:14--> 00:03:55

Thereafter, we talked about the aftermath of this, which is also a part of the grief of the year of grief and sorrow is that the the operation Americans and especially the leadership of Quraysh basically now no longer was apprehensive or was hesitant in any way, shape or form in attacking the profits allottee to them, persecuting the profits a lot. He said, I'm in disrespecting him at every opportunity. And we talked about how even young thugs like teenagers in the streets began to start to physically harass the Prophet sallallahu sallam, attack him assault him. We talked about how Buddha had multiple times tried to strangle the prophets a lot. And one other narration that I did

00:03:55--> 00:04:22

not mention, talks about the prophets a lot of symbolism sujood for an extended period of time, and Abu Jahan got up and started to walk towards the prophets a lot he sent him and he was basically dared by some of the other leaders of British to go and step on his neck and start to choke him with his foot. And then Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allah who stepped in front of Abu Jamal and told him no, no, no, don't you dare. I see the look in your eyes. You have bad intentions with the prophets a lot, he said, back away from here.

00:04:23--> 00:04:33

And we talked about another occasion where they had somebody come and dump the innards of a camel on the back of the prophets, a lot of the sudden pinning him to the ground, unable to get up.

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

We talked about all the profits a lot he suddenly became a daily event of daily occurrence. Then when he would return home, he would find trash and garbage and even human filth like feces in front of his door and he would have to roll up his sleeves and move that himself with his own blessing hands and I wouldn't need go inside and his face was covered with dirt and dust and his hands were filthy and his clothes had become soiled that his daughter

00:05:00--> 00:05:16

Fatima radi Allahu taala on her who was a little girl at that time, she would cry when she was here father in this condition, and she would say, why is this happening with your dear father, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would tell her that Oh, my beloved daughter, yeah, when a lot of key Well, he said, Don't cry, don't be sad.

00:05:17--> 00:05:29

He said in the last minute and a beak, Allah subhanaw taala. In Allah hemani aback Allah will defend your father. And the prophets allowed him continued with the circumstances.

00:05:30--> 00:05:41

But what truly makes the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam a source of inspiration and motivation is what the prophets a lot he sent them went through the sum of everything that he went through.

00:05:43--> 00:05:47

And if this wasn't already overwhelming enough as it is,

00:05:48--> 00:06:02

the prophet of Allah syllogism was dealt with yet another great tragedy and difficulty. And this is recorded in the books of Sierra and the history of Islam as the famous incident of a thought, if

00:06:04--> 00:06:43

now, we're going to end up breaking up this incident of thought if into multiple sessions, not to prolong or drag it out. But for the simple purpose of appreciating everything that exactly transpired. There are a few different phases of even the journey to thought if and the story of thought if there is a journey of the prophet to listen to, if there is exactly the procedure in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam operated with, when he did arrive in thought of how did he go about in conducting himself into if there is the story, the phase of how the profits along some left the city of La if and what he had to deal with, there's even the incident of where he then stopped

00:06:43--> 00:07:26

on the way back from thought if and what transpired and occurred at that time. And then there is even just the phase of the story of thought if in how the prophets Allah Islam was able to safely return back to the city of Mecca. So we want to make sure that we appreciate all of these things, because they're very, extremely practical, relevant lessons in each and every single phase for us, that we can take that we can learn from that we can implement, to better make sense of our own lives. This is exactly why the scholars who think the seat is the foundation of the Muslim identity, part of our crisis, identity crisis, spiritual identity crisis as an oma today is because of our

00:07:26--> 00:08:04

lack of knowledge of the life of the prophets, a lot of the time a lack of understanding and a lack of insights into the experiences of the Prophet ceylonese in them, which is the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala when he says la katakana laco fie rasulillah he in the Prophet of Allah syllogism contained within him, the Messenger of Allah will sweat and Hassan is the ultimate role model. Regardless of who you are, where you're coming from, what you're dealing with and where you're headed. You will find inspiration, motivation, guidance and direction in the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So we want to make sure we capitalize on this opportunity, and we truly try at

00:08:04--> 00:08:49

least we can never fully do justice. But we can try to do our best to understand and appreciate and learn and benefit from the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So when we talk about the story of thought if the first thing that we need to understand is why thought if and why at this time. Why at this time, I think is fairly obvious. The profits, a lot of them have just gone through great personal tragedy, it was a turning point in his life. Secondly, the circumstances and the situation in makaha. It it does not seem like could get it, it could get any worse than it already was. But it did get worse. Things did get even worse than they already were. And that was exactly by

00:08:49--> 00:09:04

what we talked about in the previous session where now nobody was holding back. Nobody had any reservations or hesitation or apprehension about fully confronting and attacking the profits a lot less and um, and obviously then also the other believers.

00:09:06--> 00:09:45

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was forced to look outside of Mecca and to try to find reprieve or relief somewhere outside of Morocco. So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam decided that the city of thought if provided the best opportunity, Now, why exactly the city of thought if? What is it that made the city of thought if so appealing to the Prophet? sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So there's a few different factors that have to be considered. You know, I've talked about this, maybe I'm not sure if I've talked about it here before. I do believe it actually came up in one of the conversations with Abu jehlen the prophets a lot, he said them, but when we

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

think about Arabia, at right now sitting here today, when we think about Arabia, then we obviously when we think about the two major cities of Arabia to us today, it's obviously McCain Medina because of religious significance.

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

Historically speaking, the two major cities of Arabia at that time were MCI and thought if they were the two major cities of Arabia, because they were home to the two largest tribes and also most powerful tribes, both in terms of number and political influence, they were home to no two most powerful tribes of Arabia, Morocco was home to flourish, obviously, thought it was home to the thief beneath a thief, the people of thief. These were the two major tribes of Arabia. And that's why the two most influential men in Arabia, were also Abu Jaan or I might have been a Sharma would have come as the Arabs called them at that time. So it was Abu jihad in Makkah, and it was a booma sarode.

00:10:45--> 00:11:34

Coffee in thought, If so, these are the two major cities home to the two major powers of Arabia, the two major tribes, who are also home to the two most influential political leaders in Arabia at that time. So thought it was very, very important, very strategic. The other thing was, even from a religious, the pre Islamic religious viewpoint. Of course, the pagan or shift perspective, thought it was also considered another major location because one of the major idols that the pre Islamic, Arabs worshiped was a lot. A lot was one of the major idols that the pre Islamic Arabs have worshipped at that time, the home of a lot was, again apart if I thought it was weird that idol was

00:11:34--> 00:11:58

housed. And in fact, the people have thought if Andrew thought if they didn't just simply have a lot, they had basically built a temple for a lot where a lot was kept. And it was the long standing ambition and hope of the people have thought if that ball is in the temple of Allah that would attract similar attention as the Kaaba used to.

00:11:59--> 00:12:36

It was something that they had hoped for a very long time that they had tried to push for a very long time. This is exactly why now I'm going way far back into the seat Ah, but if somebody wants to go back and refer back to that, you can go back and listen to the year of the elephant, the army of the elephants abraha. And the army of the elephants, one of the things that if you go back, maybe you do recall or from your own studies, or you can go back and listen to the previous recording the podcast, what you'll find there is that when abraha was making his way to Mecca, he along the way, actually the people have thought if he ended up conspiring with abraha.

00:12:38--> 00:13:18

Because of Rogers didn't simply just march towards Mecca. Along the way on his way to Mecca, he was so enraged, he was so bloodthirsty, that on the way to Makkah, he was destroying towns and killing people and tribes and families on his way to Mecca. That basically was a call you're with us or against us. Some ended up joining up with him, most people ended up opposing him standing against him and he was just tearing right through them on his way to Makkah on his way to the Kaaba. And so when he came across the people of thought, if they ended up out of fear of him, similarly, just slaughtering them, they ended up entering into a pact with them and they had an ulterior motive and

00:13:18--> 00:13:38

agenda for this as well. That part of their agenda was that if he's on his way there to raise money cut to the ground, and get rid of the Kaaba, then that basically will make bought if the sole major town and city of Arabia and secondly it will make the temple of Allah the primary pilgrimage site.

00:13:39--> 00:14:02

And so all of this is a part of the people the history of the people of life. So the profitable as I was saying, Why did the prophets Allah have some target about if, as I said, this was a major city with a very large and powerful tribe, one that rivaled that one that rivaled Quraysh. And so the Prophet of Allah ceylonese him realize that thought if could become a very strategic ally

00:14:04--> 00:14:45

in the preaching and teaching in the message of Islam now that moko was basically, you know, extremely volatile, and moko was very, very dangerous now for the profits A lot of us have in the believers that the profits a lot of them said if the people of five can be convinced, can we talk some sense into then they accepting Islam would obviously boost a number of the believers would give Muslims the sanctuary and would make for very strategic allies. So all of these were considerations that the profits a lot of them took it took, these were all factors of profits, a lot of him took into consideration when heading out towards thought if and looking towards the people of life and

00:14:45--> 00:15:00

the city of life. The other thing that should be mentioned here is that the city of La was also considered a very attractive place, many and something that we'll learn about later on on the journey back from

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

thought if many of even the leaders of brace had homes that were near thought if and even in thought if because the weather and thought it was a lot better it was known as a place of gardens and fruits and and water, plentiful water. So it was considered a very attractive place. And for many of the leaders of flourish, it was considered a vacation home a summer home. And so there were many, many different factors that made thought if a very, very strategic location and so the Prophet of Allah Salaam took all this into consideration, and set out decided to head out towards life.

00:15:36--> 00:15:42

Now the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi Salaam had very meager you know means at this point.

00:15:43--> 00:16:01

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam could not afford some form of transportation. The only person that the prophets a lot of them took on this journey with him was Edelman, who had etha who is the third believer as we talked about in our earlier sessions after Khadija I live in a Vitaly radi Allahu taala. And it was a

00:16:02--> 00:16:46

rather your loved one who, who was also a servant of the prophets, a lot of his own, but was also later on would be the adopted son of the prophets, a lot of them. So they do know how to company the profits a lot. This time he was a teenager, he was probably or at the most maybe in his early 20s. He was in his early 20s, because he when he accepted Islam, he was about 15 years old. So this is about 10 years later. So he's about in his early to mid 20s. So he's a young man. So he accompanies the prophets, a lot of them and they set out but it was about set five is about 70 miles from mucca, mucca, mucca, Rama so the prophets a lot of these are made this journey of 70 miles on foot. When we

00:16:46--> 00:17:23

hear 70 miles dream and nothing, I think it's a lot I live in, you know, South Arlington, that's like driving from Arlington to Frisco. So that might not seem like a whole lot. But remember, they're journeying on foot, they're traveling by foot, through mountainous regions in Arabia through the desert. So it is extremely difficult the profits a lot of Islam is over the age of 50. He's just gone through a very difficult emotional experience. And it's only two people it's not like some huge army or some caravan or some large entourage that is traveling with the prophets, a lot of it is to very extremely, you know,

00:17:24--> 00:17:35

humbling equipped individuals, they probably didn't have a lot of supplies, they didn't have any means of transportation, they're traveling by foot all by themselves, and undertaking this journey.

00:17:36--> 00:18:16

So the Prophet of Allah loves him along with they don't know how they thought they set up, they make their way to life. Now this I want to point out one thing here, a lot of times and this goes back to a point that I have constantly made throughout our study of the CETA whenever we read the seat, unfortunately, due to summarizing, you know the seat or a lot of times because the lack of attention span that we have today, a lot of times the CEO will be presented the entire life of the prophets, a lot of them will be presented in 100 pages if that much. So the journey to die if is a page two page three pages long, something that needs to be kept in mind the prophets a lot of times journey to

00:18:16--> 00:18:18

dive was 10 days long.

00:18:20--> 00:18:32

It was 10 days. So it's it's a very significant amount of time. Try to be try to spend 10 days away from your home from your family. 10 days is a very long time.

00:18:33--> 00:19:11

So that there's two different things that the books have said I mentioned one mentioned that he stayed at bar if for the entirety of 10 days, some of the books I've seen, I'll say no, the entire journey was 10 days long. So either he it took him a couple of days to make his way to a thought if he stayed there for maybe about a week or close to a week, five, six days, and then took him a couple of days on his way back well Lakota on them. But either way, it was a minimum of 10 days, which is a very significant amount of time. So the profits a lot easier makes his way to life. Now when the profits a lot he seldom arrives in but if How did the profits a lot of him go about

00:19:11--> 00:19:43

conducting himself This is very important. This shows the prophetic wisdom and the prophetic strategy in terms of introducing yourself to a new community, arriving at a location engaging with an existing community. How do you go about conducting yourself and doing this? So the prophets a lot of them didn't arrive there even though if anybody was entitled to doing so is the Prophet of Allah ceylonese and these are, these are machete cool and these are people who worship idols. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam is arriving there with the truth with though hade with the Quran with the message of Allah.

00:19:44--> 00:19:56

So if it was justified for anyone to do so it was the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, but what did the profits along he sent him do? The profits allowed him arrives in a pot if and he makes his way to the leadership of

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

the books of seed. I mentioned that there were other leaders that he's pretty

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

too as well, basically the next, you know, number of days almost, let's just say the next week or so. The prophets, a lot of them just went around scheduling appointments with the leaders of a life. And if you've ever been in that position, you know what that's like you call you make an appointment. First of all, it takes you a couple of phone calls to make it all the way through to the secretary. You don't even get to the person you're trying to talk to you get to their secretary, and you just get you say you want an appointment? Who are you? Why do you want one? Where are you coming from? What exactly is your purpose? What is your reason? You get stonewalled? And eventually

00:20:34--> 00:21:06

somehow you're able to talk your way through some people ended up saying I'm sorry, he doesn't have time. He can't meet Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry. You keep getting rejected. Finally, you make your way through to somebody and they say, Well, he's really busy. The earliest he can see you is on Thursday. What do you do? You say, Okay, then you show up on Thursday, what happens you get delayed a couple of hours, I'm sorry. You had some meetings that went over, you're gonna have to come back tomorrow. And you show up the next day, you sit there, wait for a couple of more hours. And then finally, you get ushered into the office. And you're told you basically have five minutes.

00:21:08--> 00:21:24

This is how real life works. And we have to understand that the Prophet of Allah loves him. That's what he was dealing with, with these people. Because worried about who the prophets a lot of a sudden was, and what he was here for had made its way to the leaders of a hive. And so some of them were stonewalling the prophets a lot essener.

00:21:26--> 00:22:10

But it mentions three specific leaders that the prophets a lot of them wanted to talk to. above everyone else. There were three brothers. They were the sons of Ahmed have been made a toughy, who was a great leader of a thought if and his three sons who were basically the key leadership in life at that time, there were three brothers. Their names was Abuja lead, number two Masaru. The number three Habib. And so these were the three sons of romaine coffee, and the prophets. A lot of them wanted to speak to these three specifically out of them. It doesn't mention which one specifically but it does mention that one of them was actually married to a woman from Pradesh. One of them was

00:22:10--> 00:22:33

married to a woman from pray from Bhanu. Juma and so the prophets, a lot of them specifically was targeting that individual that because his wife was from Croatia, and he had family in laws back in Croatia to profits, a lot of them would be able to leverage that into getting a meeting with him and even finding maybe some, you know, some more, finding that person to be a little bit more receptive.

00:22:34--> 00:22:52

So finally, when the prophets a lot of a sudden was able to get through the door and sit down with them, the first one he spoke to, and the profits a lot of him presented him his purpose for being there and why he was there and the message of Islam and that there's one a line that he is a messenger of Allah and he has come to them with this message.

00:22:53--> 00:23:02

The demand responded to the prophets a lot a solemn and he said What will a young will do Theobald Kava tea in Ghana Lahu, Ursula

00:23:04--> 00:23:28

Unruh to Thea Belka in Ghana, Allah who are salak that if God in fact has sent you as a messenger, you understand the tone. He's saying, in fact of God has actually sent you, you this guy right here you if in fact he has sent you as a messenger, I will go all the way to Makkah and I will rip the cloth from the Kaaba and tear it to shreds.

00:23:30--> 00:23:41

And this is basically try he's insulting the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he's saying that it is so shocking for you to be a messenger of God that in fact, if you are a messenger of God, I will go and defiled the Kaaba.

00:23:43--> 00:23:45

I will violate the Kaaba.

00:23:46--> 00:23:50

And so that's how we disrespected the prophets allowed him and kicked him out.

00:23:51--> 00:24:27

The prophets, Allison finally makes his way to the second brother when he approaches him and sits down with him and talks to him. And you have to understand the Prophet of Allah syllogism, his tone and his mannerism, and how he hasn't even engaged with the community yet. He's showing them respect not only through his words, but also through how he has conducted himself he's arrived as any other traveler minding his own business that you know, kept himself stayed quiet until he has first spoken to the leadership. That is a great gesture of respect to them and their position as leaders of their community. How does the second individual respond to all this courtesy from the prophets a lot he

00:24:27--> 00:24:29

said them he says

00:24:30--> 00:24:32

he says Mr. Wizard Allahu I had an answer. Who

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

am I

00:24:36--> 00:24:38

am I was at a Lago I had an

00:24:39--> 00:24:41

alum Salah who hated

00:24:42--> 00:24:59

that did not God find anyone else aside from you that he could have sent as a messenger? Really, you're trying to tell me that you're the only option on the table. He could not find anybody else to send us a messenger except for aside from you. Really an insult

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

And disrespecting the profits a lot of time in this way. He again dismisses him.

00:25:05--> 00:25:28

The third one the profits a lot is him sits down with. He says we're lucky that we couldn't be mukha above them. He said I swear by God, I will never speak to you. I have no interest in dialoguing with you. Before the profits a lot of them can even get started. Stop right there. I have no intention of communicating or dialoguing or discussing anything with you. We had nothing to talk about.

00:25:29--> 00:26:04

He says let enquanto Rasulullah mina laging Kamata Hoon lanta, Catherine meenan Rue de la kencana He says, the encounter Rasulullah Mina la cama de Paul, if you are in fact the Messenger of God, as you say you are and the Maha turon then it is extremely dangerous. You are an extremely dangerous individual meaning Kalam, in case I reject you, if I end up if you are a messenger, as you say you are then rejecting you

00:26:05--> 00:26:21

is an extremely dangerous thing to do. So you are way too dangerous to talk to in that case. Ignorance is bliss, my friend, I'd rather not know who you are not know what you have to say and just might go about my business as as usual as normal. I don't want to hear anything.

00:26:23--> 00:26:36

I don't want to hear anything. Almost as a side note, I can't help but kind of interject this. You know, a lot of times somebody will try to tell you, like a friend or relative or somebody who tries to tell you what's right, what's wrong. Like No, no, no, no, no, don't say anything. Don't ruin it for me.

00:26:37--> 00:27:03

You have to understand that's an extremely unhealthy attitude. We might joke about it or it might seem like it makes some sense in some bizarre universe. But that's that's an extremely unhealthy attitude, that ignorance is bliss attitude. This is this is this is the attitude of these people have shift. So he says, I don't want to know what you have to say, because you are a messenger. And I don't agree with you, I'm inviting trouble.

00:27:04--> 00:27:06

He says secondly,

00:27:07--> 00:27:18

when I encounter jack, the ba ba he miembros de Lima. And on the other hand, if you are lying and lying about God Almighty himself,

00:27:20--> 00:27:28

then I have no interest in talking to you. It's not befitting for a person of my stature, in my status to be conversing with a liar.

00:27:30--> 00:27:39

With such a terrible liar, conclusion, please leave, we have nothing to talk about. And he again dismisses the prophets, a lot of them in this way.

00:27:40--> 00:27:49

The Prophet of Allah ceylonese him got up and left from these meetings. And he realized that now is not the time.

00:27:50--> 00:28:04

Now is not the time he had explored, exhausted, whatever means he had and now is not the appropriate time. Some of the narrations even say that some of the common folks of Makkah basically had come to know about the prophets a lot. He sent a visiting.

00:28:05--> 00:28:34

He was the prophets, a lot of them hadn't gone and started to disrupt the community and things like that, but still, you know, some conversations have taken place. But the prophets have also understood and recognize us from Quraysh. After all, he been dealing with people like Abuja and Abu lahab, enoughness Minshew a, no may have been Caliph. He had been dealing with people of this, you know, this, that ilk, he had been dealing with people like this for over a decade.

00:28:35--> 00:28:59

So he understood how these people operated. So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam said in for Ultima Phantom, Somalia, he said, Fine, you're doing whatever you want to do. You're doing whatever it is that you've decided to do. I've tried. I tried to talk to y'all. But y'all aren't listening. So y'all are going to do what you have to do. But I have one request, fuck two more aleja

00:29:00--> 00:29:03

Let's not blast this out into the public.

00:29:04--> 00:29:10

You said you're not interested. I respected your wishes and left you alone. Now let me leave in peace.

00:29:11--> 00:29:16

Let me leave quietly with in peace. Don't cause me any trouble.

00:29:17--> 00:29:20

They of course decided that they could not have that.

00:29:22--> 00:29:28

So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam decides to leave a time.

00:29:30--> 00:29:39

Now when the Prophet of Allah syllogism decides to leave about if he tells they don't know how to answer, they've been there for a week, wherever they were staying, tells him Let's pack up our stuff. And let's head out.

00:29:40--> 00:29:52

They decide to leave. In the meantime, some of these leaders have a thought if decide this is not good enough for them dignity, certain amount of courtesy respect was something that was beyond them.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

They were below that they were beneath that. So what they decided to do was send the word out into

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

The streets, make some promises to you know, the street dogs and just people out in the streets.

00:30:08--> 00:30:34

That Listen, this man who arrived here in our town in our city, he's leaving. We'd like for you to make things difficult for him on his way out. You do what you have to do, be creative. But we want you to make things difficult for him on his way out and some of the narrations you won't point to the fact they made promises, you know, we'll pass out some bread, we'll give out some money. We'll take care of you. There's something in this for you.

00:30:35--> 00:30:39

But we want you to make sure that you make things extremely difficult for him.

00:30:41--> 00:30:51

So the narration says the Prophet of Allah salatu salam is at the boundary of the city of Fife, trying to leave quietly and peacefully. him and say do not have

00:30:54--> 00:31:27

a bunch of the street thugs and just commoners of thought if gathered up outside on the highway on the road, that went outside of thought if that left life, they gathered up around their generation say they lined up in two rows. seminarians even mentioned that they sat down by the side of the road in two long rows on either side of the road. And everybody had rocks and stones with them. And the second the profit of a lesson, let him put his foot outside the city of thought if you put his foot on the ground, they lifted up a rock each and they threw it at him.

00:31:29--> 00:31:43

And when he would lift that foot back up, then they would throw another rock at him, when he would put another foot down, they would throw a rock at him. When he put his other foot down there with her every single step. He took these they were they were synchronized, they would throw rocks at him.

00:31:45--> 00:31:51

And this, in some of the narrations even mentioned that a lot of them were targeting his feet

00:31:53--> 00:32:01

to be very, just just to be very hurtful, that when as soon as his foot would touch the ground, they would throw rocks at his feet.

00:32:04--> 00:32:13

And they did this with the profits a lot of him on the road outside of Fife. When David no Have you thought about the Allahu taala. And who saw this happening? he freaked out, as you can imagine,

00:32:15--> 00:32:50

he freaked out what is going on here. What's wrong with these people? What's happening to the Messenger of Allah. So their agent says even though Heidi thought they were all around, and both sides throwing rocks from all sides, he jumped in front of the profits, a lot of these him trying to deflect the rocks from him. And it said that one of them through a really big rock and it hits a toe mahato de la jolla and when the head and he started bleeding from his head, and when the profits alongside him, he grabbed him and he pushed him aside and said stay out of the way, stay out of the way. They're targeting me, he pushed him out of the way. And this kept on happening on every single

00:32:50--> 00:33:13

step to profits a lot of them took and when the rows would run out, they would get up, they would gather up more stones, they would come back lineup for the next, you know, 100 feet or so however many people they work and they would continue. And they did this all the way from the boundary of the city of La all the way to a place called cotton without Olive some of the books of history call it Cardinal minassian.

00:33:14--> 00:33:26

And this was a place where there were some gardens that were owned by some of the people of kadesh. They did this all the way from there to here. And then books of history and see rod relate that this was about three miles long.

00:33:28--> 00:33:29

Three miles.

00:33:31--> 00:33:52

See, this is that part of the car that we need to be able to understand what it means. We have to really understand and embrace what it means. I want you to I want you to understand what three miles is imagine walking three miles you're carrying luggage. And then on top of that there's a deterrent. There's interference.

00:33:53--> 00:33:56

There's interference, people throwing rocks and stones at you

00:33:58--> 00:33:59

for three miles.

00:34:01--> 00:34:04

How long would it take to walk that distance at least an hour?

00:34:05--> 00:34:10

At least an hour it would take at the very least even if you started to walk fast.

00:34:11--> 00:34:17

With all rocks being thrown at you looking back and making sure they are still there and he's okay he's bleeding from his head.

00:34:19--> 00:34:31

It will take at least an hour imagine for an hour non stop every second getting hit and pelted with stones and rocks. Dozens of them every single second for an entire hour.

00:34:33--> 00:34:41

When the profits a lot isn't finally reached, but enough that I live in that place where there were some there were some Hawaii it's like gardens.

00:34:42--> 00:34:51

They finally stopped and then they said okay, I think we've done what we needed to do and they packed up their stuff and they the people head back to five

00:34:52--> 00:34:54

and the profits a lot of them finally stopped.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

But by this time the profits a lot SM was injured, bruised

00:35:00--> 00:35:10

bloodied, wounded, multiple places on his body bleeding. His feet were literally torn, completely torn up, his feet were soaked in blood.

00:35:11--> 00:35:13

Because they were targeting his feet.

00:35:14--> 00:35:20

He had bled so much he had blood literally, you know, running down his legs and his arms.

00:35:21--> 00:35:26

His feet were so blood, they were soaked in blood, they were completely torn up.

00:35:27--> 00:35:39

To the point where his feet had bled so much profits. A lot of a sudden I'm used to wear leather sandals, like leather, leather sandals. And as you know, with leather, it soaks things up.

00:35:40--> 00:35:47

He had bled so much that his sandals had soaked up the leather. The narrations actually mentioned the low one and the blue,

00:35:48--> 00:35:53

the low one at neiafu his shoes and become colored red with blood be dumb.

00:35:54--> 00:35:56

They had gotten colored red with blood.

00:35:58--> 00:36:03

And then blood when it dries up, it's hard to scrape off and so hard to remove.

00:36:04--> 00:36:08

The blood had dried up and crusted his sandals to his feet.

00:36:09--> 00:36:15

So that when he did finally sit down, he found a tree and he went under the shade of that tree. And he sat down.

00:36:17--> 00:36:24

Does the narration says yet to literally peel those sandals off of his feet, he had to scrape and peel and rip them off of his feet.

00:36:26--> 00:36:35

And then the narration mentioned sitting there at that place. Some of the narrations even mentioned that the profits of lesson stood in that condition and pray to God.

00:36:37--> 00:36:40

But regardless of profits, a lot of them standing there,

00:36:41--> 00:36:47

sitting there under the shade of the tree. The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looked up at the sky

00:36:50--> 00:36:53

and the Prophet of Allah Allah He sent me Do I at that moment?

00:36:54--> 00:37:11

This is one of those lessons into our when we turn to Allah why we turn to Allah how we turn to Allah, the prophet of Allah Allah has made to her and his drive has been related to us in multiple books of Syrah and Hadith. The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:37:14--> 00:37:17

Allahumma la cara a school

Um, you know, I do when my doctor who angry or to an enemy that you have put that you have given power over me.

00:41:01--> 00:41:02

The Prophet of Allah Allah He sent me this.

00:41:04--> 00:41:08

The narration says when the Prophet of Allah Salah, the Sunnah made this Torah

00:41:09--> 00:41:13

gibreel alayhi salam came down to the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:41:15--> 00:41:20

ngvd Rani Salam comes to the prophets a lot he sentiment says Salaam to the prophets along the center.

00:41:22--> 00:41:25

And he says and then he says

00:41:27--> 00:41:28

cada Botha

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

he says in the Mahabharata semi atolla hola como Calico Omar, what do alayka Allah has heard what your what what those people said to you?

00:41:40--> 00:41:47

And he has also seen what they did with you. waka Botha in a la caja monocle. Jeevan

00:41:49--> 00:42:04

Bhima she turfy him and he has also sent me to you and along with me He has sent the angel that our last panel that Allah has put in charge of the mountains to you at your disposal at your surface so that you can command him to do whatever it is that you want him to do with these people.

00:42:06--> 00:42:12

Through menadione molekule Jeevan the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that the

00:42:13--> 00:43:02

Then the angel that is appointed to the mountains called out to me for Salah Malaya and he said Salaam camisa salaamu alayka Rasul Allah, He said Salaam to the Messenger of Allah Allah He presented himself in the company of the prophets a lot he sent them through metalia Muhammad Rasul Allah in Allah had the semi arcona oh mecanica what an American Jeeva Allah has heard what these people said to you, and I am the angel appointed to the mountains, thought if was is a valley sitting between mountains. He said other botany rabuka la Caleta Moroni, be America for ma[???]a that your Lord has sent me to you to be completely at your disposal at your command so that you may

00:43:21--> 00:43:54

and usually de la hoomin a slubby him menyambut menyambut de la vida hula, usually Kobe and the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, No, no, no, no, no, I have no ill will towards these people. Rather, instead of ordering you to destroy these people, I rather have hope that Allah subhanaw taala will bring from these people, he will bring forward to generation upon generation or progeny from these people who will worship Allah alone, and will not associate any partners to Allah.

00:43:55--> 00:43:57

This was the Do I have the profits allottee center.

00:43:59--> 00:44:14

And this is how the profits a lot of them handled the situation I thought if in the immediate aftermath of a thought if which was this brutal treatment, by the people have a thought if towards the profit of a loss of love the center, that the Prophet of Allah Allah is no one made.

00:44:15--> 00:44:52

He turned to Allah and even what he sent his drive is very relevant. He didn't just say, oh, look what these people did destroy these people. He said no, a lot. I'm only concerned about one thing that you're still pleased with me that you are not angry with me that you are not displeased with me. That's all that matters to me. Like everything else can be handled with everything else can be dealt with, but I cannot deal with your displeasure towards me. And then secondly, when the profits alarmism is presented the opportunity for retribution for vengeance for revenge, the prophet of Allah ceylonese and praise for the guidance and the hidayah of these people. We're going to go ahead

00:44:52--> 00:45:00

and stop here because it's getting close to the time of selected Asia. In the following session. What we'll basically talk about is what exactly

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

Actually now occurs with the Prophet of Allah sloty. Some big building off of this we'll also talk a little bit about, you know, the history of the people have thought if in the generations to come, who came from the people of thought if and what was the outcome of the death of the Prophet of Allah Salaam. From this great display of humility before our last panel what Allah by the prophets a lot, he said them, and we'll also then talk about what exactly now transpires, this place other than menaggio carnosa is a very amazing, unbelievable event takes place here. And we'll talk about this in the following session as well. One of the primary lessons that I want to point out from this

00:45:37--> 00:45:55

along with turning to Allah making dua to Allah and seeking out the mercy and the love and the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala even when dealing with such brutality at the hands of people. Another lesson that we should not forget is how the prophets a lot of him conducted himself in the city of five

00:45:56--> 00:46:14

he respected their protocol as proposers ism as it may have been, he respected their protocol he went to their leaders when their leaders had leave, he said I will leave I will not you know go to the people and rile them up against you, you similarly don't rile the people up against me.

00:46:15--> 00:46:53

maintaining peace in order was a core value of the Dow of the profits allottee some and something we need to be very particular about and pay attention to me I lost power today give us all the ability to practice everything that's been said and heard Subhan Allah He will be hungry he Subhana columbium de Chateau La ilaha illa Anta so for one or two we Lake, as I mentioned in the beginning of the sera class, you know, some of a lot of times I have to end up referencing earlier events and occurrences in the Sierra. Remember that you can go to the website elements to.org slash podcast and there you can access all the previous c ra sessions and in fact, I encourage everyone to review that

00:46:53--> 00:46:59

so that we are making sure that we're building on and benefiting from the life of the profits allottee So, salaam aleikum wa Taala
