In the previous session, we were talking about Albania aka pathania. The second pledge or Oath of Allegiance that was given to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam by the Muslims of El Medina to Navara or what was yesterday about that time, what would become Medina, not only was an oath of allegiance given at this particular time to the prophets a lot SLM by, you know, another new 70 some odd individuals. But at the same time, a contract or an agreement was put into place, a consensus was established, that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would move to Medina to Managua eventually, and he would start sending the Muslims over there to relieve them from the
circumstances in Mecca. And that Medina will basically become a place that would host the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Muslims of Mecca, and also Islam. So this understanding was there that this will become a place and a base of operations for the further propagating of the religion of Islam.
Now, after all of this was agreed to, and it was put into place, before we go on to talk about in the next session in sha Allah, where the people actually start to depart from MCI and arrive in Medina, and some of the very powerful stories that occurred at that time, you know, again, I always talk about this, I keep bringing this up. It's a reoccurring theme, if you will. But you know, whenever we talk about many, many different instances in the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we talk about them out, it almost seems like we talk about them outside of reality. We recount the story, we have a half a page or a page, or maybe if we're lucky, two pages worth of material, and we
just tell a story. And on top of that many times we romanticize a lot of the stories. And what we ended up doing in that process is that we remove a lot of the human dynamic, the human element, and we don't really tell or understand or even ourselves grasp the reality of those circumstances.
You know, and just think about it again, when we talk about the heads that are we talked about, like this glorious moment, where Muslims are leaving and celebrating and partying and there are banners and confetti and balloons, we're going to Medina, we're going to Medina. And then if any of us have ever been to Medina, then we're thinking of an air conditioned bus and you get on there and about four or five hours later while you're sipping on your mango juice. Right then all of a sudden you arrive in Medina and it's like a Medina right and when you arrive in Medina there's in this colossal Masjid mercy, the number we and there's a five star hotel waiting for you and then you go downstairs
and you eat a shawarma like this is kind of the idea, the mental image that we have, we have to understand what the Sahaba are the Allahu Allah, Allah whom the companions of the Prophet salivation were dealing with. This was a mass migration of people.
I mean, there are very, very powerful,
moving powerful, and even in some cases, tragic stories. People sneaking out in the middle of the night, people being chained in shackled people being killed and murdered. While they're sneaking through the desert in the middle of the night. people's families being held hostage, people's property being taken away from them, people being chased down, hunted down and being brought back like a wild animal on a leash. Like these were very, very powerful stories. So we'll be talking about that. But before we move on to actually talk about the migration and the migration of people, individuals, groups, families, a community from Mecca to Medina, I'd like to kind of wrap up this
incident that occurred at here at this time in the 13th year of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi. Salaam was preaching and teaching the message of Islam here in Mecca. So it's the season of Hajj there in Mina.
These 60 some odd individuals have come to the profits a lot of a sudden from yesterday. Al Madina, munawwara they've accepted Islam. They give
pledge an oath of allegiance.
They inform the prophets a lot of them have many, many more believers that are back in yesterday, bin Medina, who have been converted to Islam over a year of efforts conducted by the young Musab bin are made the young dynamic preacher very passionate, you know, believer most have been omitted, or the Allahu taala. And who, and at this point in time they make a specific appeal, that we see your circumstances in Mecca, we understand what you've been going through, we would like to request you to come and join us in Medina in your trip because we think this would be benefit we obviously would love to have you got our solar law. We believe in you as a prophet of Allah, why wouldn't we want to
host you in our city, have you as our neighbor, see your beautiful face every single day pray behind you learn from you, but also we would be able to relieve you and our brothers and sisters in faith from the these terrible circumstances here in Mecca. So abas, the uncle of the prophets, a lot of them sits with the prophets, a lot of them they basically agree to this. Now that they've given that pledge an oath of allegiance Ibis starts off the discussion by letting them know you are taking on a serious responsibility, and some very, very serious, some very serious
risks. If you are taking him with you, you will be responsible, you got to own up to it, you got to be ready for the task. And they all agreed to that. And everything is said and done. at this particular time, there's a couple of interesting narrations that talk about the immediate aftermath of all of this being settled. the immediate aftermath. The first thing is I'd like to mention is an operation that even as hot mentions in Indonesia mentions it in a Syrah as well.
garbin Malika the Allahu taala on who was one of the ansata, young poet from the unsought from the people of Medina, who was one of the first people to take the pledge and the oath of allegiance. Also, let's not forget that after these people accept Islam, the prophets, a lot of them asks for 12 men to step forward and appoint some as leaders of their communities. So all of this has been done now. gabion molecularity Allahu taala and who he says at this particular time, that phenomena by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I set up cache volume in rasilla acaba be unfair, the Sultan Sameera, to whom he says that after we had given our oath of allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu
Sallam shavon screamed out from that area of appa, the valley, they're in Mena, he screamed out with the loudest voice that I've ever heard. He said, Yeah, I'm in Juba, Dubai Jeep. Yeah, and LG Badgett, and javadi was basically what they would refer to as the different camps that they would set up there in Mena. So he's calling out Oh, people of the camps all these encampments. halochem FIM with them mumin was subharti Ma, who, that per the HTML or Allah have become, he says holla confy. Mme mme
is basically the antonym it is the opposite of the word. Muhammad. Muhammad comes from Hamed means praise Muhammad, the one who is frequently praised. The opposite of hummed is them.
Right them is to talk bad about someone
to talk about someone so move them mum means the one who is frequently criticized. So this is shavon disrespecting the profits a lot. He said, I mean, he's calling the process I'm with a mum, instead of Mohammed Will I ever Bella. And then a super bad, super bad baby basically is from the word Saba Saba, I mean, somebody who forsakes their religion somebody who abandons their faith is called a sabi. So with the a lot of the leaders of the Qureshi were opponents of the prophets, a lot of them, they used to call the prophets a lot he some isabey, the one who has forsaken his religion of his people. And so the people who followed him, they would call him they would call them so bad. These
are all abandoners. These are all heretics. These are all apostates and heretics. So they would call them so bad. So shaytan is saying hello hello confirm with them. I mean was so bad.
That Do you know what's going on with Muslim man referring to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? And do you know what's going on with his band of heretics? What's going on with his band of apostates? He says by the HTML or what Allah has become, they have gathered together to fight against you. So this is shavon probably because Goblin Malik says I can hear this person screaming that this has shaved off
In a human form, as occurs in different places in this era, like we're going when we talk about the migration of the prophets, a lot of the sentiment is shavon who comes into shape in the form of a very old man. And he's the one that proposes the, the the idea of trying to assassinate the prophets a lot of wisdom. So this is probably shaved on here again in human form. And now he's saying to them, Do you know what's going on with Mohammed and his band of followers, but the HTML or what Allah has become they're getting together to fight you, which is obviously false.
calificado Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had that as a bola aka the when
so either Goblin Malik informs the prophets, a lot of the prophets a lot of them can hear and he says this is a bola Baba, which is basically one of the names of shavon as a so he says this is shaytaan who's talking don't pay any attention to him. What have I ignored as yet? That this is Shay Tom don't pay any attention to him another narration the prophets of love even says a decimal a I do a lot
that Do you hear me Oh enemy of God, the prophets a lot is in response to a talk. Listen to me, oh enemy of God. And now we're looking at the federal government.
that nobody's gonna pay any attention to you. No one's gonna pay any attention to you through muffaletta salicylate ism info elearning halochem. The prophets a lot. He said, I'm now realizing that shaytan is you're trying to instigate a situation he tells because you can imagine I talked about this in the previous session as well that imagine the scene where the prophets a lot ism for 13 years have gone through all the difficulty and all the heartache is gathered together in a tent that is packed from wall to wall with 6070 people sitting in front of him all standing up and giving him the oath of allegiance. strove, you know, literally,
you know, pushing each other to come and put their hands in the hands of the profits a lot he sent him so it's very powerful moment. So the prophets, a lot of him realizing that shaytan is trying to instigate something here, the prophets allottee some says this will really look very intimidating. If some of the parish come and they see this tent packed full of dozens of people. And they're all sitting there around the prophets, a lot of them attentively listening to him. This is going to really intimidate them. So he says if although ilari heiligen the profits allottee some says dispersed from here, go back to your tents, go back to your camps, pack up your stuff, you should
head out as early as possible.
The narration goes on to mention as mentioned that Ibis been obata who is one of these unsolved he says jasola law when lady Bertha been happy in *al and Amelie Lana, Allah, Allah Mina hadn't be as happy now that one of the unsavoury says O Messenger of Allah, I swear by the one who sent you with the truth. I swear by Allah, that if you want, all you have to do is give us the signal. If you want, we will attack all these people here in may not tomorrow with our swords.
We will we will basically prepare tonight and tomorrow morning. We will declare war we will unleash our swords upon the people here in Mena. We don't need to disperse. We're not afraid we're not we don't need to hide. We're ready to take these people head on. So give the word Yabba. Sula, the prophets a lot he said them respond to him. He says London no lamb no Murphy Delica. We have not been commanded we have not been told to do so. That's not our mandate. That's not our responsibility. That isn't our, you know, mandate right now. That's not what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded us. We're like in the energy only Nadi heiligen. I reiterate, go back to your camps.
Go back to your transportation, go back and pack up your stuff. So
does the unsalted they basically say that for Jana in amavasya in a phenomenal fee her Hata as Bana he says that we went back to where we were resting where we were sleeping. And we we basically went to sleep and stayed there till the morning time for la vida de La Nina gelatin, gelato. Quraysh hatachi una feminazi Lena.
He says when morning time came, we saw that a group from the cache. And it specifically mentions that she often Maisano that these were not just not ordinary people from the operation. These were the leaders of the operation of the most senior leaders of the corporation. They came to us and they visited us where we were camped. And the addresses he said yeah, ma Cheryl has Raj. Oh people are Kazuma Joe people of Medina in a vuca Bhavana and naka de jitsu Mila Sahib, Bina hada
We know that you've come to visit
our friend here.
And they're referring to the profits, a lot of them. That stuff we do not have been alluded
to by your owner who allow to be now and you want to take him from amongst us. You want to remove him from our city, our community. And not only that, but you have given him an oath of allegiance to fight against us. You're willing to fight us for him. So you've put your lot in with him. We know this. We got information we know what's going on. We were lucky mom in Haiti in Manila Arabi. abogado Elena, Minh and tangible, horrible Bane and our Bina hoomin. Come, he says that there is no other community from the Arab that we would not want to fight, we would dislike having any conflict with moreso than you. Like, you're the last people that we want to fight. We have no beef.
We have no issues. Again, I don't want to jump ahead of myself here, because we're going to be talking about this. But what's very interesting is that when the Battle of bud that even occurs in the habit of the auto was that when they would have a battle, they would have the mobile rocked, individuals from both sides would come into the middle, and they would have kind of like a showdown. A couple of individuals at a time initially to start things off, and then the battle would ensue. When this occurred, some of the unsolved fast forward in two years to the Battle of bud that when somebody unsolved they stepped forward for the showdowns declaration that time also again objected
saying some of the some of the fighters from the potential conversion I don't even know who you are.
I don't even know who you are. Why would I be fighting you? I got no reason to fight you. mean you we have no relationship? no grudge no beef with one another? Well, who are you? Why would I fight you? So there's this idea that's there. So again, here they come to them and they say, we don't want to fight you. We have no history with you. I have no beef with you. We have nothing to do with you. So we would very severely dislike falling into a conflict with you when we don't even have a problem with you.
So they say so then from Bahasa man hoonah Kumi mushy ki homina, Yala foon McCallum in hada. Shea Makana Minh has shaken wama alumna who color was Sadako lamjao. So they basically go on to mention that they make this proposition. Now the unsolved you know, they say how did these people even find out they realize that some of the because remember I had mentioned that the 6070 Muslims who come for the Hajj, they're traveling amongst a couple of 100 people who are not Muslim from their people from their area. So they see that some of the Muslim traveling with us must have gotten wind of this must have realized something was going on, or they were spying and they went in inform them. So he
said that now that all of this is happening.
The narration mentions that we're about you know, younger about
we started looking at each other, like what do we do here? How do we exactly handle this situation? And one of our people stood up. And he basically said that we have nothing more to say to you about this. We have nothing more to say to you about this. We're not here to compromise. We're not here to negotiate. We have nothing more that we'd like to say to you about this, but this is it. So we have right here a couple of things that I wanted to mention number one was that as soon as the debate, this oath of allegiance occurs, some of the unsought are willing to go and start fighting and the profits a lot of them comes on down the next morning you have the police coming in trying to
intimidate the unsought that are you sure you want to do this? You want to put your log in with him. And again, the unsought are sending strong and not giving in.
Another third incident immediately in the aftermath that is actually very interesting is even as hot mentions, anybody in sharm also mentions in the Sierra, that gap bin Malika, the Allahu taala anhu. As he's telling the story, he mentioned that somebody went to Abdullah new Bagan saloon, who is later on in the seat on own as soon as the leader of the hypocrites so somebody goes to him and they tell him everything that has occurred and transpired. And at this point in time, they don't know that Abdullah bin abatement tool is going to be so opposed to the profits allowed him but he was also a leader amongst us amongst the people. So they were actually hoping that he would be an ally.
And so when they tell him I'm delivering a baby and saloon says in the huddle, Emery jesseman Makana Tomita Farah koala mythri Hadar Lim to Ghana funds are off
On who. So the people that go in, inform him, he says that this is a very serious issue. This is a very serious issue, I see that people, our community will begin to become split over this. So he says, I want you guys to go from here. And I don't want any more people to go and get involved with this situation.
After that point in time, he sends word to the Quraysh. That there are some people here who are causing problems, they're going to be gathering some strength, some numbers against you, you should try to take care of this situation, and you might have my help you have my support. So they basically come out looking for some of these people, and they start chasing, they start chasing after a couple of individuals and they're able to find Sabina robot or the Allahu taala and who and mundial been amor, who was the brother of sorry, they've been Gabino cousin Raj. And the both of these were appointed as leaders of the unsought by the prophet sallallahu sallam, and their start,
they find these people leaving Makkah heading back to Medina. And they basically start chasing after them and move their bin Ahmed is a basically able to escape sobbing or bhagirathi Allahu taala, and who gets captured by this group of people. And so the narration says that they grab him, they tie him up, they restrain him, and they basically start taking him back to Makkah, and they're beating him and they're hitting him and they're torturing him. And the narration actually mentions that
we had Zhi buena, will be Giamatti he will Canada shot in caphyon Sabino Bharati Allahu taala, who had long hair, and they grabbed him by his hair and they were dragging him by his hair. So they're beating him. They're kicking him. They're dragging him by his hair, all the way back to Mecca to basically teach these people less than that, who do these people think they are? They came here to our area to Mecca. And they joined forces with this guy. And they started talking to him about fighting against us who will teach these people a lesson. So from the encouragement of Abdullah new beiben saloon, who is from Medina, who they see as a leader of this area, these people have yathrib
they basically now come after after he gives them certain assurances, they grab sub bin or Ababa, and they start beating him and torturing and bringing it back to Makkah. When they finally bring him back to Mecca, and they tie him up and they just restrain him there. He's basically a prisoner.
He says for lucky in me laughing at him. I was I was done for now. I was at their disposal. I was at their mercy after they would kill me before anybody could find out that they had me here. It dawned on me and
a group of people have the courage come
see him Rajan Wadi on abiel Sha Sha, hello MENA region. He said, This man comes who's very, you know, just he's got this very illuminated face like he seems like a friendly face. This man comes in, he seems like he has a very friendly face and he has a very soft, you know, very
simple, sophisticated manner of speaking. And he says philosophy nuptse I thought to myself in a corner in the middle homie Hayden, find the hada he says if there is anybody who's going to be good here, it'll be this guy right here.
And he says, the second I was thinking this, that
filma the nominee Rafa Yoda, who for lack of money, lack of attention, he didn't.
This the while I was thinking that if anybody is good, if and if I can appeal to anybody's good senses, good natured will be this guy. He seems like a good decent person. He says, while I was thinking that he came up to me and he slapped me as hard as he could, for Bluetooth NFC. louer, lachy, merenda houbara hadn't been paid. And he goes, No, no, no, there's no good left here anymore. Like that's it. I'm done for.
for logging philosopher, we're lucky. Neela vadm. Yes. Hi, Barney. And he says, I was again in their hands and I thought they're going to finish me is awali rajala. me man ma whom a man from amongst them comes to me. He approaches me, meaning he he kind of felt sorry for me. He felt bad for me. So when nobody else was looking, when they all kind of went off to the side, he comes up to me.
And he says way hacker. He says, Man, what's wrong with you? He says, am I being a kobina? I had him in Croatia, Guatemala. I don't. Don't you have any allies from Croatia? Don't you have anybody any hookups in Croatia? any personal connections in Croatia, but you got nothing. Come on. And he says go to Bala.
He goes no i do i do come to eg really debated been motoring to Java Who am now who are others in Mojave Balaji well inherited may have been may have been abductions he says there are two people hottie has been ammonia and debate been motor and these two people they were businessmen very prominent businessman from Africa and he says I
have an agreement with them that when they send their business caravans through the route that passes through yathrib through Medina I grant them protection and I am a leader amongst my peoples who when people know that these trade caravans are protected by me know bandits nobody harms them nobody attacks them. Nobody tries to steal from them because they know they have to deal with me. So these two guys I have a long standing relationship with them. He says way haka factor if fat if he is mineral, Julian, he goes, Okay, give me the names of these two individuals with good Malvina kobina. Who might tell me exactly what your agreement is. Palo Alto, he says. So I went ahead and
did that. We'll call Roger Roger Lillehammer. This man. He goes out to find how does manomaya and German motoring he finds both of them sitting near the cabin he says to them in a modular mineral has Roger and Robin up to high reactive be Kumar. He says that there is a man from Hassan Raj, who is being beaten, he's being tortured to death basically. And he's calling both of you He knows both of you. They said Who are you talking about? Manuel? Who are you talking about? They said Sargon he says Sabino Baba, I'm talking about Sabino Baba. Both of them say Sadako Allah He said Aquila, he's speaking the truth. If you if that salmon are better there, then yes, we do have a relationship.
Where in Canada you need to learn how to Jelena William not a woman in the movie, but he he protects our business caravans and he prevents our people from being harmed when they pass through his region, his area. So both of them come for 400 Assad, ma de him from tala Kava, Canada de la kamasan, to help in a hammer. So he basically comes and he releases have been about that from you know, being held from captivity. And the one who had slapped Sabino Baba, the guy who had the friendly face. And he slaps had been Obama was to hate me. And you know, this, you know, I say this is all very fascinating. These are all critical in individuals. saben are bad days, of course, a
leader of the inside, and you see what he's going through. Right now I'll mention something else here. This man who hated me, and I'm not sure haven ama was one of the people who he was basically the person that the grace would send later on as the chief negotiator in the solar in the agreement, the Treaty of n who they via
solar, who they be at the end of the day via the primary negotiator from the mechanics from who would be so helping.
And part of what was so aggravating to him later on was his own son had actually accepted a song. His son had become a Muslim. So these are all very critical individuals. And speaking about Sargon or Obama. What's very interesting is that emammal Bay hupy Rahim Allahu taala mentions
in his book, a de la de la luna Buddha. He actually talks about how Abou soufiane he says that
he heard somebody saying for use live massada and he used to be Muhammad and be Makita Li yoshua Mahal if he heard somebody saying at that time when these Ensenada came into Word started spreading in Medina, that these people are coming in. They're accepting Islam and they're trying to take Mohammed over there and all of this is going on, that he remembers somebody saying that if the two sides except Islam, become followers of Muhammad, tomorrow morning, Mohammed will not fear the opposition of anyone in Macau anymore.
Abu sufian says that the next morning he said I asked Who are these two sides that you talk about? Is that Assad bin backer or Assad bin who they say he says the second night he hears the same poet saying as I do saddle OC come to enter now Sarah, we are sorry to saddle Hazara Gina Lovato reef, a photography a G by illidari, who da Waterman Neha Allah lucky Finn for those who monitor ITV for enough awaba liking the tornabene houda g nano middlefield oc that Rafael de that again, here's the poet talking about these
Two sides. One is from Osen. One is from cousin Raj. One is remote one is from cousin Raj and he talks about how they have answered the call of guidance, and they have put their hopes in achieving and attaining paradise.
So the next day Abu sufian says, who are lucky, sad been wife, what's our been arroba This has to be solid been wife, and Sargon or baba. And that was exactly it that when the prophets allowed him was able to achieve when he was able to gain not just the confidence but the support and the faith and the belief of sobbing rather than suburban or urban, that set the stage for the profits, a lot of them to be able to go to Medina to one hour and to be able to establish himself there in the community there. Because these two individuals the two sides I'm in Arvada, Southern were either extremely influential people whose influence was even understood in Makkah, that even the people of
Macau understood that these two people if the one is foremost, one is from hustler agenda, two tribes have been fighting.
And they're very, extremely influential there are people will do whatever they tell them to do. If both of these guys get on the same page and join forces. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will really have some strong support at that point in time. And that is exactly what was achieved at this particular point in time. And that's what makes it so critical and so important.
Now to talk about again, the aftermath of these people accepting asylum and joining the profits a lot he sent him the unsolved now depart from answers. To wrap up the thing one of these peoples have been about that was the same one who was being tortured there by these people. And so you see all the stories kind of connecting together. All right, and that's where Southern Nevada firsthand gets to see what the Muslims and what the prophets A lot of us have been going through, they're in Mecca. Now the unsolved they leave Makati leave Mena, they go they leave Hajj and they go back to ye thrip what we will call the Medina terminologia. They go back to this blessing city of Medina.
Now that they've given the oath of allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they've made an agreement to where now Muslims will start to arrive in Medina.
They go back there, and they basically now openly proclaim their Islam. Everyone in anyone who's a Muslim, comes out and basically says, We are Muslims. This is our community, we're establishing a community, we're going to be bringing a lot more Muslims and the prophets, a lot of them and be an establishing a community here. And they specifically go to some of the leaders of their people, the elders of the community, who all of them have not accepted Islam yet. They specifically go to them to show them some respect and also appeal to them and try to gain their confidence in their support. Amongst them is an elder of the community. His name is Ahmed have been a jumbo.
Jumbo. So I'd like to share this particular story with you and then I'll tell you a little bit more about him. I'm going to pin a jumbo. He was one of the elders of the community in Yerevan, Medina, he was still a machinic at this particular time. He's very elderly. He's very senior. He's very respected. His son was
not only has accepted Islam, but he actually went with the people who went in this second Oath of Allegiance and accepted assignment give the oath of allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So more I've been amor, his own son is a Muslim now. So they come to
America non GMO, and they present the message to them and they're actually narrations that talk about when Musab been or maybe a year ago. When was Harbin almeyda the Allahu talanoa came to Medina when he came to him. He, when his son he forbade had been a jumbo had four sons. And it was like the pride of the family and these four young big strong sons. He had forbidden his son from going and talking to him Sabino made. One of his sons ended up accepting a song, he even asks his son, what does this guy say? What does he say to you that you go and you listen to him and it said that his son recited so little Fatiha to him. I wish I didn't really have any response. So he had had some
interaction. He had spoken to masabi nomade he had kind of reprimanded him. Who are you? Are you here? Why are you trying to take away our youth and split up our community.
So he had had some interaction but he was this elderly individual who was very well respected, was still practicing his shinik wasn't really comfortable with all of this, you know, new stuff that was going on there in Medina in his city.
Now, this part of the story is very interesting, but also
a little funny as well. His son will I've been hammered. And I'm going to be in a gym who was a leader of bunu salema. But who selima Who were some of the inhabitants of Medina, you know, the machine that we refer to today as Muslim blotting. Right? That's actually the machine w selama. So there were so he was one of the leaders of boom salema. So along with his son, where I've been under there was another young man from Blue salema, who had also become a Muslim. His name was more I've been Jebel. That should ring a bell famous Sahabi All right. And that's why I've been Jebel was appointed as the Imam of the masjid of Bani salema by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So
now these two young men Well, I've been dabbling in his own son while I've been a hammer. What they basically do is that this man, I might have been a jumbo, he had an idol that he used to keep in his home, and that he used to look after he was the elder, the leader of his people, there was an idol that they refer to as manette.
It's talked about in the Quran as well, right? So the idol called Minot, which was a very big, important idol to the people in that region, the mushriks of that region, right, he used to keep it in his home, look after it and take care of it. Because he was the leader, he was the elder, the senior. So his own son was been a Marine, while I've been given his friend, two young guys, they basically decide to kind of mess around a little bit with the old man or with his idol. So what they do is that every evening he would, you know, clean up the idle and you know, present an offering and dress it up and rub perfume on it, etc. Like kind of, you know, take care of it, maintain it. And
then he'd go to sleep. And he was a very old elderly man. So he'd go to sleep, they would sneak in at night, grab the idol, and they would take it. And there were some ditches outside of the area where bunu salema lived. There were some ditches out there, where they basically used to go in, you know, throw their waste, you know, dump all the waste, and even, you know, use the restroom and all that kind of stuff out there. And they would take this, they took this idol and they went in, they threw it over there. And then they came back at night, they snuck back at night, he wakes and it's specifically mentioned, they dropped it upside down into like a ditch full of waste.
Now when I'm in a jumbo who wakes up in the morning, he doesn't see the idol and he's like, who to hire, oh, who did this. And he would go out looking for the idol until he found it there in that ditch in the waste and he's furious. So he takes the idol out, he washes it down, he cleans it up, you know, he puts perfume on it, he fixes everything up, and he puts it and he says that it will law he if I find out who's doing this, I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna teach him a lesson. I'll take care of them. So again, the next day occurs, he's maintaining it taking care of it, he goes to sleep, they sneak back in at night, they grab the idol, they go and they throw it again, in a ditch full of
waste. He wakes up in the morning again, finds it, he's just furious.
And they, you know, he brings it back, cleans it up and puts it back. The third day, they come and they do the same exact thing.
He again finds it the third morning, he's angry, he's furious. He brings it back, cleans that up and puts it back in its place. That evening when he's about to go to sleep. He before going to sleep he he's just it's starting to kind of occur to him. Like, this is just unbelievable. This is my God. And somebody comes and takes him every single night and throws him in a ditch full of human waste. Like basically dunked him in the toilet. Like I don't understand what's going on. So he's a little frustrated now. So he takes his sword
and he put through my job as a fee for alcohol again, he ties his sword around the neck of the idol. And he says in new Allahumma Allah manga snarl because Ma, he says, I don't know who's messing around with you. But he says for in Ghana FECA Hayden from dunya for her the safe marker. He says that if you are good, if you are actually a God, then defend yourself. I'm leaving my sword with you. I'm asking you please defend yourself.
So now when he goes to sleep and these two guys they
His own Son being one of them.
They come here again and they come and they see a sword hanging from the neck of the idol. They're like, Oh, this has gotten really serious.
So they take the sword out, they put the sword down. They go in they take the idol. Again, I'm not condoning any of this just telling the story.
They find a dead dog. You know, just maybe lying by the side of the road like roadkill, they find that that dog, they tie the idol to a dead dog. Alright, Kelvin megaton.
And then they they tied this idol to a dead dog and they go to one of the empty abandoned wells of belleau salema. And they throw the idol tied to a dead dog into this abandoned well.
The next morning, he wakes up, he finds the sword line there he goes to where he normally dials out there he goes to where normally the idol is in the ditch in the toilet. He doesn't see the idol over there. Through he goes around looking for it, asking everyone about it. He finally stumbles upon this abandoned well, and he looks inside and he sees his idol, you know, upside down inside of this abandoned well, tied to a dead dog.
And this is just too much for him.
So he says, No, this is it. This doesn't make sense anymore. I'm leaving you here. I'm leaving you here. He goes in he actually says I need to talk to one of these Muslims. That'd be been talking about not worshiping these idols. I'd like to talk to one of you now. They hear that I'm going to be in a jumbo shave, right? Old elderly, like man and leader, respected individual. He's asking to speak to a Muslim about Islam. So they're excited they come to Him, they talk to him and he accepts Islam. For us lemma be Rahmatullah. heeta Allah wa hacer una Islam who
were hanaa Aslam, Otto fermina, lahemaa, arafa, Huawei, escuela Sonoma who that Nika Wilma episode I'm Emily way escuela La La the Anika homie Makana, Femina La la la la Allah, and he not just accepted Islam, but he like they say well hustla Islam who he perfected his Islam like he really excelled in the practice of his faith. He didn't just ceremoniously accept Islam and then go right back to life. No, he actively embraced his faith in his religion and he practiced Islam. And he used to remember used to recall that idol in this whole incident and talk about it and tell people about it. And then he said thank Allah for saving him from this blindness to spiritual blindness. And this
this this Delilah, this misguidance that he was drowning in, and he used to say these couplets he used to say we're lucky, Lowcountry Illa and lambda con and terroir, Calvin was the Phoebe lynfit was the beetle in feed pudney ofin limahl, parka Ilaha moose mustard and allana for Firtash NACA en su illa kabani al hamdu lillahi wa Li Milani, and why he bid Rosati de Yana Dini who under the un catani Min, probably an akuna feasel Mati COVID and more tahini. He said these couplets he's speaking to the idol he says, I swear to Allah, if you would have been a god, you never would have ended up tied to a dead dog inside of a well, that if you were a god, that just wouldn't happen. Is
that too much to ask? Right? He says that it is so just unbelievable. What ended up happening to you. And it really shows that believing in you how misguided it was. He says the ultimate praises to a loved one who has blessed us with all the favors the one who gives given us all the gifts that we enjoy the one that blesses us with the sustenance and the one who has provided the true proper Dean the religion, he is the one who saved me from ending up in the darkness of my grave, subjected to punishment due to my disbelief.
So I used to think I was kind of waterland quote these couplets and talk about this incident.
I wanted to just kind of conclude this particular story by talking about I'm going to be near Jammu, who he actually was and what he actually went on to, you know, achieve or become. This is again, fast forwarding a little bit, but there'll be lots of stories at that time to talk about this. But since we're talking about I'm going to jump over because it's it is a very interesting story because it's a story about a very, very elderly man.
Who is very respected amongst his people who's very set in his ways for 60 7080. God knows how many years he's been worshipping an idol. He is the caretaker of an idol.
So yet, after all of this, he realizes this is wrong, and he accepts Islam. But you see the effect of being, you know, in the company of the prophets, a lot of Islam and being a part of that community and how it motivated everyone. So I've been in Jammu, one of the effects of old age on him was that he had lost
a lot of ability and movement in one of his legs.
So he was very severely.
Like, he really seriously struggled with one of his legs. And because of that, it wasn't, it was almost to the point of where it was a physical disability, like he couldn't even walk properly. He couldn't walk on his own, he would need help and support when he walked. So it was that bad.
When the Battle of buddy came around, the communities built now right for a year and a half, for almost two years, the community has been developing and building and they've been in the company of the prophets alive. So fast forward into the Battle of other when the Battle of brother came in, everyone was going in all of his sons were also going, he said, I want to go as well. And his sons went to the prophets, a lot of them and he said, O Messenger of alarm. Father is a very old man. He's a very old man. And on top of that, he has his physical disability, please, can you let him know? Explain to him that he doesn't have to go? He won't listen to us. Obviously. His sons are
like, Dad, you don't have to go. He said, Be quiet. You don't know anything. Right? So they say can you please explain to him so when he comes to the profits, a lot of the profits, a lot of them says that you are an elderly man, you have this physical disability, you do not have to go.
And at the insistence of his family, his sons, he doesn't end up going.
From that point on, he, he just felt so terrible about it. He would always keep like yelling at his sons that you people kept me out of paradise. You boys kept me out of genda I was gonna go to the bottle of bourbon. You kept me away from this. And he was just furious. He was angry with them. So now when the Battle of boyhood came around, and he used to tell them, he says, I swear to a life another situation, another opportunity comes up, nobody will keep me back. Nobody. Don't you even look at me. So when the Battle of Oakwood came around, he said, I'm going that's it. And his sons were like, you know, and he goes to the profits, a lot of them from before, as soon as the
announcement the battle had made as he goes through the profits a lot. He's made several messenger of a lot. It is my full intention to come with you. I will come with you. My sons will try to stop me. They will come to you.
You gotta have my back this time. Right. And so he goes home and he starts putting on his armor and his helmet and everything. He's ready to go picking up his sword and a shield and his sons are like, Here we go again. They're like, you're not gonna listen to us. He's like, that's right. I'm not gonna listen to you. So they go to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he shows up full ready in armor. Like, let's go. When are we leaving? And they're like Yasuni law. Please explain to him Look at his leg in this manner. And the prophets, a lot of them seen the zeal, the passion, the desire that this man has the prophets, a lot of them says that they say, look on messenger of Allah. Look,
he can't even walk properly because he's like, you know, using his sword like as a cane. And he's like, hobbling along and kind of walking along barely. As he look at us. Look how he walks, he can't even walk properly. Look at his leg and the profits a lot. He said, why wouldn't you want him to walk like that in paradise? Why are you depriving your father of that opportunity?
Let him go.
Semi on our Donna. Right. Muhammad Rasulullah sala de Sena semana. wattana. So they say, that's it. Whatever you say what messenger of Allah
says, This man, I'm going to be in a jumbo the narration mentions that. His wife later on tells a story that before he left the home he made a dua. She heard him making drama. When you put on his armor, and he was about to leave his home, he made law. He said a loving mother zucchini, a Shahada,
love mirzakhani Shahada.
I love him in his opening, Shahada, and feasibility Oh Allah grant me martyrdom allow me to give my life in your path for your deen for your cause, while at the root Danny Illa ami kaiba while otter Rue de la Neha even and do not return me back to my family humiliated.
What he meant in his expression was Yeah, Allah. I don't want to come hobbling back to my family as you know, some old
A disabled man anymore. I want to go out with glory.
So he goes out to the battlefield. And narration mentions that his sons were like, Alright fine, you came out of here, but you can't stop us from protecting you. So they surrounded him.
And then in the Battle of a herd when things started breaking down into profits, a lot of sin was being attacked. The him and all of his sons went to go defend the profits a lot. He said him and his sons. You know, it mentioned that some of his sons were also Shaheed, and he also basically fell Shaheed at that time. And later on him and his nephew, him and his nephew, when his wife came later on to arrange for the burial to bring the shrouds the coffin,
or just to just income in general and identify the body for the burial, that the prophets a lot he sent him commanded that both him and his nephew be buried together. And at that point in time, the prophets Allah the pseudonym says something very, very beautiful. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam walked by his body stopped and looked at his body lying there. And the prophets Allah Assam says in the raw ini araca I see you right now. Like it's as if like, the previous lesson was being shown like a vision. He says in the araca
I see you walking in paradise with the same leg, but it's okay now.
I see you walking, standing upright, walking fast walking brisk, healthy, fine with your leg and it's absolutely fine. And I see you walking in paradise. And he told the family members, I see your father, I see your husband walking proudly in Paradise, and his leg is fine. His leg is okay. So this is the story of Ahmed have been in Jammu. He was one of those leaders of that community. in Medina. We ended up accepting Islam when the unsought they reached back into Medina, what we'll be talking about in sha Allah. In the next session, is we'll actually talk about buffleheads Rotom in Makkah, el Medina will talk about the beginning of migration, the movement from Mecca to Medina and
the Muslims beginning to make their way from Mecca to Medina. And we'll talk about some of those real powerful human stories that occurred at that time, so that we can appreciate their sacrifice. They were rewarded with Medina, but that didn't come for free. They we've talked about 13 years of struggle in Makkah, and then even the journey from a Qatar Medina was a journey, a lot of them didn't survive. And a lot of them had to go through a lot in order to make it there. And then finally, you know, even once a reach Medina, then we'll be talking about the Medina and era and how the sacrifices continued on into the Medina and era. And if nothing else, the appreciation that we
can take from this, what we can walk away from is that we are the beneficiaries.
We are the beneficiaries of a dean of a religion of a tradition that has gone through so much, that that so much sacrifice, so much, you know, difficulty so much blood, live sweat, you know, has been poured into it.
In order to bring it here to us to this point, we might be enjoying the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala.
You know, we sit in our comfortable cars, and we drive over here, and we walk into this comfortable machine and we pray on this carpet. And we sit here, you know, relaxing, comfortably listening to 30 minutes, 45 minutes of a discussion about the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
These are the blessings of Allah, we don't have to feel guilty. We don't have to feel guilty that we enjoy the blessings of Allah. But we do have to appreciate what has gone into bringing it to this particular point. What we we are reaping the fruits of the harvest of this legacy. This is a legacy of great sacrifice. A lot has gone into it. So appreciating what all these generations what these people, what these families, these generations, these individuals, this entire community, what they went through, to ensure that the dean would reach us one day 1400 years later.
And that's why we learn about them. That's why we talk about them. That's why we educate ourselves about this. And we make do either May Allah subhanaw taala reward them on our behalf. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah This is why we say rather your loved one who may Allah be pleased with them. And may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to follow in their footsteps and benefit from their legacy Subhana Allah who will be handy he Subhana columbium dek Chateau La ilaha illa Anta the sufferer governor tabula
