sha Allah continuing with our series on the study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a sirata number we are the prophetic biography. In the previous sessions we've been talking about the prophets a lot he assumes arrival in Al Madina, munawwara the illuminated city of Medina. We also talked about the initial challenges some of the initial tasks that the prophets a lot of him undertook to really establish and settle the community there in Medina, from the construction of the masjid to having his family join arrived in Medina and join him there in Medina. So some of and then of course, the prophets, a lot of them serving the community in Medina, establishing the bonds of

00:01:13--> 00:02:01

brotherhood, the prophets. A lot of these have also reached out to many of the Jewish tribes in the area, and at least establish some level of communication and familiarity with them. One of the interesting things that occurred and this is this kind of an interesting situation. Shortly after the profits, a lot of resumes arrival in Medina tomonaga these are narrations that are mentioned by Imam Bahati Rahim Allahu taala. In his Jammie Asahi, it's mentioned also by many of the historians and scholars of the Sierra, such as urbanists. Hawk, in my humble mentioned some of these narrations, and of course, he may have been even cathedra Rahim Allah tala also mentioned these

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

narrations

00:02:03--> 00:02:49

and that is that when the prophets a lot he Salaam arrived in Medina to munawwara in the Muslims basically had started to arrive a little while before him and then continue to arrive through the arrival of the prophets a lot of the salmon shortly following the arrival of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, I shadowed the Allahu taala and relates this in the following manner. She says that when we first arrived, Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu, along with Ahmed had been for Hadar and Bilaal the Allahu taala and Omar Ahmed bin for Hadar and Bill Allah, the Allahu talana who were used to be slaves. They were free men now, but they used to be slaves and they were freed by Abu Bakar. The laquan Abu

00:02:49--> 00:03:31

Bakr radi Allahu talanoa had bought them and release them purchase their freedom because they were believers. So to free them from persecution and torture and slavery, he had freed them so they were very close. And in fact, I've talked about it before where people used to refer to Abu Bakar and Malala the Allahu taala Anima as brothers that they were so close that they were like brothers, so it had been for heydo also being Mola be back had also been freed by Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala, who was like a brother to Abu Bakar so these three were extremely close, and they were staying together when they first arrived there in Medina to munawwara I shadowed the Allahu taala and her relates and

00:03:31--> 00:03:36

recalls the incidents that when I arrived there in Medina, with my mother with the family,

00:03:37--> 00:04:23

I went to go see, you know, we're obviously inquired about our father Abubakar, the Allahu anhu. And we were told that he was very, very ill he was very sick. And him I'm even for hate on bill Allah, the Allahu anhu, all three of them had fallen extremely ill had fallen very, very sick. And so they were all staying together. They were kind of keeping them together, I guess, to kind of keep it contained. And she talks about going to visit them. And she says when I walked in, and she describes she says that I can't even describe to you how, you know, sick they were that they were like incapacitated. You know, when you're running an extremely high fever, and your head hurts and your

00:04:23--> 00:04:59

body aches, and you feel like you can't even move you're bedridden. That's what she describes a whack. Right that worried Abu Bakar that Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala my father, Abu Bakr had to be Latin American for hero, they were bedridden. They were so sick, they were so ill that they were bedridden. They couldn't even get up from bed. So she says I walked in to look at them to check on them. And she says I asked my father Yeah, gave a touchy Duka that our beloved father, how are you? What is your condition and she says that, you know,

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

When I asked him this, he responded by saying khulumani in masaba Humvee and he was a moto ad and I mean shiraki nalli he, he responded with a couplet with a poem. He said, Could Longley in Musab Behan v alley. He, each and every single person wakes up in the morning amongst his or her family, what mode to add, and I'm in shiraki. Now, Lee, but death is closer to every person than their own shoe laces, the laces of their shoes. mean death is that close every morning you wake up, and you think it's a new day and you have your whole life ahead of you. And you wake up next to your wife and look at the faces of your children and you feel like you have the world at your fingertips and

00:05:41--> 00:05:46

the whole life is ahead of you. But in reality, death is closer to you than your own feet.

00:05:47--> 00:05:59

That's how close death is. So he said this and she says that when I heard him say this, I thought to myself like he has no idea what he's talking about. But he's just delusional

00:06:00--> 00:06:30

from the fever, she says was was ultra ami Ron Kay Fattah judoka is an admin for Halo, how are you? And he responds by saying in new digital mode cabela dopey in giavanna has had for whom in foci, he says that I found death that I have I basically tasted death before the time of death. I feel like I've tasted death before the time of death. That's how sickening Oh, I am.

00:06:32--> 00:06:39

So then she says the same thing. I thought to myself that while you know they're they're completely just delusional.

00:06:41--> 00:06:52

And then she says, What's the LTV lol and I asked belladati Allahu taala and who gave it a judoka? How are you feeling? And she says that Malala the Allahu taala who responded

00:06:53--> 00:07:43

with couplets and poetry as well. He said Allah later she already had a beaten and a Latin before him were holy if Iran were jolly Lou wahala ridin Yeoman Mia Hama, Jonathan Wiley Abdul abdomen Leisha matomo toffee Lu, he basically says that I wish that I was spending the nights on the mountains of Makkah with the grass and flowers. And he describes the type of vegetation or grass or greenery that grows outside of Makkah. He's describing that that I wish I was lying down in the hills outside of Makkah with the grass and all those different types of flowers around me. And he says that I longed to see the river and the waters around the area of Mecca. And I wish that I was

00:07:43--> 00:08:22

there in the mountains of Mecca. So he basically is missing home. He says I wish I was back in McCain. I mean, think about what he, of course, he's got a fever. So he probably isn't completely lucid. But also think about the fact that how severely ill he must have been bulama, the Allahu taala went through torture in Makkah, that he actually feels so near death, that he says that I would trade my car right now for this. Right. And so they were when we say they were ill, we're not talking about the thing where you're like running a little bit of a fever, or you have a little bit of an upset stomach, or something like that. We're talking about deathly ill, like critical

00:08:22--> 00:08:39

condition very, very ill. Now where was this from? What What was this about? So I read through a lot of the narrations and some of the historical accounts. And I found something very fascinating and found something interesting that this wasn't simply

00:08:40--> 00:09:34

specific to the Sahaba the Allahu taala on him, or this particular incident at the time of the migration. But Medina yathrib historically speaking, historically speaking, Medina ethnic before Islam was actually notorious for having dirty water. And people becoming very, very ill and sick. There's actually a lot of historical accounts that mentions he Sham, he actually writes, what kind of about wahama are often filled yahaya that the illness of yesterday was very famous before Islam, what can I either canon Wadi will be on that it was known as the Valley of sickness, for I should have Holly Hill in Sun, and it basically talks about how there were rivers there were streams that

00:09:34--> 00:10:00

were flowing there in yesterday before Islam, and they were very, very like the water was very muddy. It had a very strong stench to it. Some of the streams that were going through through Medina, some of the streams are very muddy water in a very strong stench to it like the water had something in it that made it kind of bad, and people used to oftentimes become very sick very ill due to that water and over

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

Like Medina for outsiders, the residents who live there had built up a level of immunity to where they themselves will not get very sick and ill. But it's not by coincidence. Again, that's one of the forefathers of the prophets. A lot of them one of his great, great grandfather's. It actually talks about him dying, becoming very ill and dying there in Medina. I believe he was a sham. He got ill, and he died there in yesterday been Medina, the father of the prophets, a lot of them also fell ill there and also died there as well. So this is not all not a coincidence. So you kind of see the connection. So the local residents had built up quite a bit of immunity. But when outsiders would

00:10:42--> 00:11:00

come to Medina, they would become very, very ill deathly ill. And that's what happened with the Mahajan own. They started arriving for MCC. And they all started falling sick and becoming very, very ill. In fact, it basically talks about that there was a point there was a time when the majority of the Mahajan own were bedridden, and they were very, very sick and very ill.

00:11:02--> 00:11:40

And so I was telling you that historically, even before Islam, before he's allowed before Rasulullah, salallahu alaihe salam before being Medina, it was always known as a place where people would become sick and become ill. And you know, before Islam in times of Jagannatha, people used to do [???]. People didn't have demand, they didn't have proper tawheed they didn't have proper belief. So they were deeply superstitious. They were very, very superstitious, right. superstition is the type of [???] and it's actually a sign of the weakness of like emaan Anto heed within a people. All right, there's no room for superstition in Islam. The prophets A lot of you multiple times condemned

00:11:40--> 00:12:06

different types of superstition, whether it was associated with a place or whether it was associated with a time or whatever the situation was in animal a season. Whatever it was, the profits a lot of people constantly negated superstitions. But people before Islam were deeply superstitious. So it actually talks about the fact that Ashraf Ali and enzyme kill Allahu anion Hakuna hizballah Mr.

00:12:07--> 00:12:10

That they are this very, very weird superstition.

00:12:12--> 00:13:01

And there's some poetry that this one poet while he was crossing through that same place in Medina, he says now I'm really in a short two min Khalifa Tierra de now he's been himari in the Neela Jesu and what he's basically saying is that the practice in the time of Jackie Leah was that when somebody would pass by Medina, like the travelers, the expert travelers those who are a little bit experienced, had been through here before and they kind of knew all the stories and all the rumors and all the superstitions they had a practice when they would pass by Medina they used to the narration describes they would put their hands like they behind their head or they would grab their

00:13:01--> 00:13:06

ears and pull their ears and then they would make the sound of the brain of a donkey

00:13:07--> 00:13:47

like they would make the sound of the brain of a donkey 10 times and they would do this 10 times they would put their hands up on their head they would you know, pull their ears they would put put their hands on their face, they used to scream and they would make the sounds of the brain of a donkey and somehow they believe that this would protect them from the web Ah, of yes rip this will protect them from the illness the sickness that was common there in the city of Africa. And so when the profits a lot of these arrives, of course, there's no room for soup, superstition of this nature, because it's contradictory to our emaan our our feed our to heed our belief, so there's no

00:13:47--> 00:14:28

room for this but still does have or becoming very, very ill and very sick. So what do you do? So it said at this particular time that I shout out the Allahu taala on her when she goes and she specifically speaks to her father Abu Bakar and the two friends brothers of Abu Bakar the Allahu taala and who Ahmed bin for Hara and Bill Allah, the Allahu taala and Huma. Then she goes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she says that I informed the profits a lot. He said I'm about to for another Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam last summer. So she says I told the prophets I said this is what's going on with them and this is how sick and Ill they are. That gets

00:14:28--> 00:14:41

really really bad I fear for their lives. And so she says the profits along the sun looked up at the sky. Well Carla Allahumma Habib Elena Medina de cama hubub to Elena Makita au ashada.

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

He said, Oh Allah make the city of Medina beloved to us, just like you made the city of Mecca beloved to us, and in fact even more than that, along with my buddy Glen Alfie, sorry, huh? Well if he madiha saw in mud, our measurement

00:15:00--> 00:15:48

Not so much measurements of weight but measurements of volume. And they were used to measure grain and food in, you know, in Hejaz in Arabia at that time and McCain, Medina. And so the prophets, a lot of them uses the word saw, which is equal to two handfuls mud, which is one handful. So one handful is mud, two handfuls is saw. So the prophets a lot of humans using these words have one handful into Anvil to basically referred to food, a lot of abetik linefeed sorry, How about madiha? Oh, Allah put blessing and Baraka for us in the food of Medina. So Oh Allah make Medina beloved to us even more than Mkhize beloved to us. All right. And this is actually one of the narrations that

00:15:48--> 00:16:15

Imam Malik even uses to talk about the virtue of the city of Medina. And then he says, Oh Allah put blessing for us in the food of Medina. One boo bah ha lm Maja, and he basically says in move the disease of Medina away from here, far, far away from here, and he names the place that was the farthest known region of that was the farthest area of that known region.

00:16:16--> 00:16:27

Excuse me of Hey, jazz, he says that remove the wahba as far as possible away from here. So after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made this drama

00:16:29--> 00:16:31

the narrations mentioned that

00:16:33--> 00:17:01

all of a sudden the Sahaba radi Allahu taala on him, they started to recover. And they started to feel better. And they were slowly and slowly starting to get better and better. And they slowly started to recover. And from that day on, nobody that that disease that was there in Medina, whatever it was, whether it was the air, or it was something in the soil, or it was something in the water, but from that day on visitors to the city of Medina would never become ill

00:17:02--> 00:17:44

would never become ill. And in fact, an interesting thing about that in our times as well is that people who have been for Hajj people have been for Ramadan, and then they go to visit the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in the city of Medina. They always note the fact that Medina is always very pleasant. And Medina is always very refreshing. Medina is always very, very nice and very comfortable. And this definitely is the door of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. There are a lot of make Medina beloved to the people. And Allah put Baraka in the food and in the weather and in the health and in the air and in the water of the city of Medina there and remove disease away from

00:17:44--> 00:17:54

the city of Medina. That that holds true till today. That is a DR the profits allottee salon that was accepted in the favor of the beloved city of the profits, a lot of these Medina tomonaga

00:17:56--> 00:18:03

there's a couple of narrations that are actually related to this particular incident that I wanted to go ahead and mention here as well.

00:18:04--> 00:18:12

About seven years after the hegira seven years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:18:14--> 00:18:31

you know, migrated from Mecca to Medina and made this throughout the place of Medina and that were bad that disease that illness was removed from the people of Medina about seven years later, the Sahaba went back to Makkah officially for the very first time. And that was called the Umrah, Toluca,

00:18:33--> 00:18:37

Umrah to Qatar because they went into sixth year to go to Omaha but what ended up happening

00:18:39--> 00:19:20

elephant ABS willful who they be the Treaty of who they be occurred. And part of that treaty was this year, you don't come to Mecca, you go back to Medina next year, you come back for three days and you get to do your ama that you want to do so desperately. So they came back the following year to do I'm going to talk about their makeup on Raw when they came back to do the makeup on Raw. What was interesting was by now though, above Medina was obviously gone. But because those old stories, obviously right, if there was a rumor, there was a story, or there were just as general if there was this general knowledge within the culture of the people, that yes, City of Medina is a place of waba

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

is a place of disease. Then, you know, even though it's been six, seven years since that it still kind of lives on the rumor, it takes a while for it to work its way out of other people's minds. And on top of that, the McKenzie Quraysh. Were very spiteful, because you have to keep in mind I'm fast forwarding here. We're going to go through this eat up properly inshallah. But I'm fast forwarding. The Battle of bud that has happened about Nevada has happened about love conduct has happened right off the solar, of who they be as occurred. So the McKenzie operation very spiteful. There's a lot of history. Now there's a lot of beef. So they wanted to mock the Muslims in any way that they could.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

So when the Muslims arrived there

00:20:00--> 00:20:36

in Mecca for the camera, and many of the Muslims who were who had migrated from Mecca to Medina. So they were originally McKinsey themselves. You know, obviously the first six, seven years in Medina were years of hardship. They had been through so many battles, dozens of skirmishes, they had been through all this hardship, and everything. So maybe they looked a little frail, they looked a little weak, they had also travelled all the way from Mecca to Medina. So you got to keep that in mind as well. That's not an easy journey to make on foot. It took them you know, days and days to get from Medina to Mecca. So they're probably worn out a little bit from the journey, maybe a little

00:20:36--> 00:20:57

malnourished, are dehydrated from the journey through the desert, at the same time, whatever the case was. And then on top of that, they were just looking for some excuse to taunt the Muslims. So when the Muslims arrived, Now, keep in mind, on top of all of that, not only have they gone through a journey, so they might look a little weak or a little dehydrated, are a little, you know, kind of dried up.

00:20:58--> 00:21:38

On top of that, they're doing Umrah for some of these folks, for some of these believers, many most of these believers, this is the first time they're formally doing this act of worship since accepting Islam. So this is a very great moment for them. And they are an all, especially the unsought and many of them because they had never looked at the GABA in this slide before they have accepted Islam. And this is the first time now they're looking at the GABA and seeing it for what it really is. And that is beta la haraam, Kava to lucky sharifa. Right. So they're in all of this magnificent, majestic place. So what happens it humbles you, right? So they're humble, they have

00:21:38--> 00:21:53

their heads bowed down low, they have their shoulders and Stover, they're making are making is still far doing tawaf praying, right? They're engaging all this and they're very humble. And so some of the mccunn started to talk them. And the way that they taunted them was

00:21:54--> 00:21:56

that they were specifically saying

00:22:02--> 00:22:33

in the who yuck demo Aleykum was done by the wahana. Whom yesterday rip that a group is coming here. A group has come here, that though waba of Yes, rip, the disease of Medina has destroyed them, look at them. They're weak, hunched over, dried up, shriveled up, you know, they look they look so broken, the disease of Medina has broken these people look at them.

00:22:34--> 00:23:15

Right and they were trying to taunt them in any people who might have, you know, become into who might become interested in Islam who might be affected by the Tao of the prophets, a lot of them in the Saba, they were trying to basically you know, work counteract that effect of the Muslims being a mecca by saying look at them, the disease of Medina broke them. And that's actually why if I'm not 100, salicylate ism and Dr. mutulu the prophets a lot of them commanded them to do Roman and for those who have been for Hajj and Umrah, you know that any talav that is followed by sorry, has what in it? It has Rommel in it, right? So you do the Roman that where you basically don't just walk

00:23:15--> 00:23:34

around the Kaaba, but in the first three circuits in the first three circles of your life, which is seven circles in the first three of them, what do you do, you march, kind of, you know, stick your chest out, put your shoulders back a little, and you march like a soldier marches and the prophets a lot of them commanded them to do this.

00:23:35--> 00:24:02

The prophets a lot of whom commanded them to do this Roman as a as a show and as a sign as a display of strength. And also that's where the profits a lot of them also commanded them to jog to kind of like March again between the mid laner during the Saturday that of course also connects back to harder but also the prophets a lot of them re emphasize this at that particular place. Well mem now who and your Moodle Allah shot

00:24:03--> 00:24:40

shrauta Kula Illa Allah him but the prophets Allah is him did not tell them to do Rommel throughout all the seven circles, all seven circuits, because he didn't want to make it too difficult, but he wanted them to be able to engage in there though I told him and he said fine, and, you know, humbly connect with a law and present themselves before a lot. So it was kind of a balance. So the first three do the ramen. And even though we don't have that same scenario where we have machete comb looking at us when we go for hydrometer Ah, but we still do that, to follow the command of the prophets a lot Zim etbr, Linda be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Well, we do it to follow the command

00:24:40--> 00:25:00

of the prophets, a lot of Islam, and also to emulate the action of the Sahaba and to preserve that noble act of the Sahaba radi Allahu taala on him. So this is connected to that. So even though I'm fast forwarding now, seven years down the road, but it's connected to that talk of the web Ah, another thing that also another narration that's

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Seems a little disconnected.

00:25:02--> 00:25:09

But it's it's, it's connected. It was said by the prophets a lot. He said I'm at this particular incident.

00:25:11--> 00:25:23

Even shih tzu de Rama Allahu taala mentions his narration from Abdullah bin amor Bonilla is radi Allahu taala Anima Rasul Isla de some Lama Padma Medina who was Habu,

00:25:24--> 00:25:59

ma and Medina. When the prophets a lot of him arrived in the city of Medina, him and his companions, his companions were afflicted by the fever and the sickness the flu of Medina if you will, had de huduma Robin until they became very, very deathly ill was set off Allahu La Liga and obese allottee some a lot protected the profits a lot of them from becoming sick, had takanobu ma you saw Luna Illa was included. And it got to a point where the only way that they could still pray five times a day was that they had to pray sitting down

00:26:00--> 00:26:42

Bala 400 Jerusalem is a lot easier. So Luna can Alec and basically the context of the narration is that after the prophets a lot he submitted to our for the disease of the city of Medina to leave Medina then they started to recover and get better and some of the Sahaba were still sitting and praying in the profits. A lot of them knew now that they're starting to recover and they feel a little bit better, a little bit stronger. And he came out and he saw them welcome you soluna kadala Guru then he saw them sitting in praying down for Carlota whom here a Lambo, he said realize understand know this unless a lot of higher ed Allah nurserymen salatu wa him know that the Salah of

00:26:42--> 00:27:25

the person somebody praying Salah sitting down is half the reward if Salaam that is prayed standing up to pray sitting down is half the reward of to pray standing up. Now of course this doesn't mean that somebody honestly physically cannot stand up and pray Of course their mother would and their excuse lab so bionic when the prophets a lot even was injured. He had broken his leg when the profits a lot he said um towards the end of his life became very, very ill femural the fact he the illness that carried the profits, a lot of them to his passing. Right when he became that Ill he prayed sitting down. for Jews, it is permissible, in fact, it is recommended for that person. But

00:27:25--> 00:27:29

what the profits a lot of these is talking about here is a little doodle because

00:27:30--> 00:27:51

your reward is in accordance with the level of sacrifice. So sometimes talking about myself here, all right, sometimes I might be you know, I might twist my ankle, right playing basketball. Now, my ankle hurts. I could pray standing up. It's a little uncomfortable.

00:27:53--> 00:27:57

But then I could pray something and I figure I might as well just pray sitting down. Right?

00:27:59--> 00:28:19

The question is, and this is more of a spiritual so the fifth of it is the fifth of it. If you don't feel up to it, you can praise him down and that's permissible. The prophets Elijah is giving this spiritual recommendation here to the Sahaba the Allahu taala. No, I have to think to myself, I twisted my ankle. It's a little tender. It hurts just a little bit. Do I still go to work? I do.

00:28:21--> 00:28:27

Write Do I still stand in line at Starbucks to get my coffee? I still do. Right?

00:28:29--> 00:28:32

In fact, when the guys called me up to play basketball Tuesday night.

00:28:33--> 00:28:51

I said you know what, I got an ankle brace here somewhere. Let me let me figure this out. I set up a strap it up. I'll show up. I'll keep it light half court, no full court. shala. All right. And then afterwards, all I set up again. shuttler. Challenge, okay.

00:28:52--> 00:28:55

And also the same for salon. It's like, Oh, brother, can I have a chair please?

00:28:57--> 00:29:10

Right. And then all of a sudden, I'm too sick to stand up. Is this something to think about food for thought me? I'm talking about me not talking about anybody who has a serious, you know, back issue or a serious, you know, health concern, and I'm talking about me.

00:29:11--> 00:29:13

Right, I have to think to myself,

00:29:14--> 00:29:24

how easily Am I willing to take the rocks on this situation, but everything else? Life, you know, business as usual. Business as usual. It's all good.

00:29:25--> 00:29:46

So the profits a lot a sudden saw the Sahaba they're starting to recover, they're feeling a little bit better. You know, they're starting to go about their daily activities. And then they're still kind of sitting and praying down to profits alarming, some said, Look, and that's why the wisdom of the Prophet says he didn't change the fic he didn't say Hey, your salon is Botha infested by your Jews? haram

00:29:47--> 00:29:56

right. But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam didn't say La talkable right. This type of prayer will not be accepted. But the wisdom of the prophets a lot of these embassies said okay, you can pray like this, but

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

you just know this much

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

Salatu liccardi Allah mislim insalata

00:30:04--> 00:30:17

that you can have to reward if you pray sitting down. So you motivated them, exert yourself. And you really have to and you understand, gee, this also seems very arbitrary, until you understand the role of Salah

00:30:18--> 00:30:56

the who are the Sahaba? And what are they going through right now. They've left their homes snuck out in the middle of the night, kicked out of their homes. They show up in Medina, total absolute strangers, of course, the unsought or the unsought of their name speaks for themselves most hospitable, the most kindest, most generous people that this world is oma has ever seen. Islam has never seen a more beautiful community a more welcoming, embracing community than the community of the unthought. Having said that thing about the plight of the module, your home is gone, your family is left behind, you don't own a single penny to your name, you don't have anything.

00:30:58--> 00:31:00

You're going through so much hardship.

00:31:01--> 00:31:37

Your relationship with the line your Salah, is your lifeline is the only thing that will help you get through this, this adversity, this difficulty, this difficult moment that you're in the emotional stress, the physical hardship, the psychological stress, everything that you're going through, where do you get the release? Where do you get the nourishment? Where Where will you sustain your soul? How will you sustain your soul through your soul? Ah, so don't compromise your soul or compromise something else. Don't compromise yourself. taste your salon. Feel your salon, you should know that you pray.

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

And that's why the prophets Eliza is emphasizing.

00:31:43--> 00:31:54

He's emphasizing No, no. Might be a little hard for some of y'all. Some of y'all are still too sick, where he can't stand up and pray. I understand. For those of y'all that are recovering, starting to go back to work and things like that.

00:31:56--> 00:31:57

Taste it feeling

00:31:59--> 00:32:03

is what keeps you alive spiritually. That is far more important than your body.

00:32:04--> 00:32:11

right this is this your soul, a lot more important. And so this was the recommendation of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.

00:32:12--> 00:32:30

And then the narration basically says from Abdullah Hamad bin Alas, radi Allahu Allah Anima digest shamel Muslim una LTM and the Muslims all stood up and started to pray sending up Allah maybe him monography was suffered. In spite of still being weak and being sick, they were still recovering.

00:32:31--> 00:32:50

lt muscle fugly because they wanted this blessing and his virtue and his reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they were willing to go through a little bit of hardship for a much much greater gain and blessing from from Allah subhanho wa Taala. I also wanted to mention one narration very interesting

00:32:52--> 00:32:56

emammal basically mentions is that when the

00:32:57--> 00:32:58

wahba

00:32:59--> 00:33:24

or excuse me, mumble hottie mentioned this, that when the waba the disease that was there, the flu and Medina, once it left after the prophets, Allah made the DA, he came out the next day and he said, that I saw in my dream last night, that there was this very old, like disheveled, kind of really scary, wretched looking person.

00:33:25--> 00:34:04

And I saw that this person walked out of Medina and just walked away and he pointed in the direction of Northwest out of Medina, that he said that this person is old, wretched, really evil, scary looking person walked out of Medina, I saw this in my dream. And that was, that was divine revelation. That was the last power teller letting the prophets allottee some know that your dryer has been accepted, of course, and that this disease from Medina has been removed. And it was personified as this really wretched, evil looking human being that then walked out of Medina. And when the prophets a lot of these I went and saw he found that the Sahaba were starting to recover

00:34:05--> 00:34:42

and they were starting to get better. And that was basically the beginning of the you know, blessing of the city of Medina that we know, Medina with till today that it is that beautiful, that peaceful, that that amazing experience that every single person has that started at that time when the prophets Allah and the Sahaba radi Allahu talana first arrived in the city of Medina. We'll go ahead and pause here and stop here for this week inshallah, and continue on forward. What we're going to be talking about in the next few weeks is a couple of things. Number one, we're going to go through the Constitution of Medina, the prophets, a lot of him when he came there, he basically sat down and

00:34:42--> 00:35:00

dictated he had the Sahaba the Lakota Lanham write up a whole constitution kind of like a code of conduct for the community, for the city of Medina, for the community of Muslims, since this was the establishment of the Muslim community. So we'll talk about that. We'll go through that. We'll also talk

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

about some of the things that kind of go hand in hand with that.

00:35:03--> 00:35:25

And then eventually we'll move on to talking about some of the first initial scouting and expeditions that started to happen in and around the area, the vicinity of Medina, which eventually would culminate into the Battle of Bunker. So we'll talk about that inshallah we'll be talking about these, these following events over the next few weeks. May Allah subhanaw taala.

00:35:27--> 00:35:55

grant us the ability to practice everything that was said and heard, and May Allah subhanho wa Taala through the study of life of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam give us the love of a lion His messengers a lot he said, um, and May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to live life like the messenger sallallahu alayhi Salaam and emulate the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to the best of our ability. So Hannah like it would be handy he subhanak along with Nick ness, Shadow Allah Illa illa Anta Misaki Luca, one or two we like
