sola continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a Sierra to Nova we had the prophetic biography. In the last few sessions, we've been talking about the profits a lot of establishing and settling the community and as Medina to munawwara. The profits a lot assumes community in the blessing illuminated city of Medina, we've talked about a lot of different things from the profits, a lot of establishing the masjid, to establishing some type of social order there, the prophets a lot of these connecting and removing the grievances or the,
you know, conflicts that existed there amongst them in the past. We also talked about how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he established his own residence and settled his own family. And in the previous session, we talked about how now the prophets a lot, he said them established congregational prayer. And that was, of course with the initiation of the practice of them. So we talked about the event in the previous session,
what we're going to be talking about today, were a couple of the, a couple of firsts for this new community in Medina, this new Muslim community in Medina, there they they had a couple of firsts, meaning their first couple of major like community experiences. So a part of any community of course, a community is made up of people. And what naturally happens with people is life and death. Right? There's life and death is a normal part of the human. It's a part of the human condition, the human reality, the human experience. babies are born, people die. All right, it's a part of any community. And we know as a part of our community, in fact, one one of our brothers was just telling
me about the birth of his daughter, and he was telling me about their having an aka for his daughter. So just like that, in any community, you have babies, you have children that are born, and it's a source of happiness within the community. And it really helps, especially if you can imagine a young, a young community, a very young, fresh community, and all of a sudden, if there's a child born in that community, it's a huge source of celebration within that community. Likewise, death is something else that is a natural part of life. It's a natural occurrence. And it's something that happens in every single community. And whenever there's a death in the community, it's also again,
something that bonds and brings the community together. First and foremost, the news spreads. Everyone in forums when and other people get together for the husen in the tech field, and the janaza. And then that feed, and then condolences and tazzy and visiting and offering you know your condolences and support to the family members. So death is another experience that brings a community together. Now the prophets a lot he someone he established his community in the Medina to munawwara. It of course, again was a natural human organic community. And so they also had similar experiences. One of their there's a couple of different variations. But generally speaking, the
majority of the scholars of Sierra, the scholars of Hadith, the historians, and the more authoritative authentic books of Sierra actually mentioned that the very first death that occurred in the community of Muslims in Medina was actually a very tragic passing and that was the passing of a boo Mama, as I've been Jura. His kunia was Abu Mama, and his name was Assad. Bindra now the thing about Assad in JIRA is that Assad means Aurora was you know, one of the leaders of this Muslim community in Medina when the when the Muslims the very first time that they interacted the ansara rather I should say, the unsalted the very first time they interacted with the prophets a lot he
said them was during the season of Hajj was at the time of Hajj. And they met the prophets, a lot of the some of the prophets a lot. He said, um, you know, basically asked them May I speak to you for a minute? And they said, Sure, absolutely. Why not? What do we have to lose? And there were six or seven of them and they sat down and the profits a lot even spoke to them and presented to them? And they said, Do you mind if we have a minute in the profits a lot? Absolutely. Take your time and he stepped away and they consulted with one another? And they said this seems to be the same men that the Jews oftentimes talk about the Prophet of the Last Times. We should you know, we
We should be the first ones to align ourselves with him.
And they basically accepted assignment took the Shahada, they returned back the following year with 12 people, five or six of the repeat individuals from the first year. And now there were a total of 12 people and they came back the second year. And now they not only accepted Islam, but they gave the base. They gave an oath of allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the following year after that. Now, this is the third meeting, there were over 70 individuals that came, and all of those first initial 12 are all amongst them. And they all accepted Islam and all 70 of them gave the oath of allegiance to the prophets a lot. He said them and then the prophets a lot of these him appointed
12 leaders, they went back, they took mazovian omega the Allahu taala and with them to basically gum there and educate their community and lead their community and connect more data and convert more people to Islam. And the prophets Allah diesem appointed 12 leaders and nakaba right, it's not I shall know Baba, he appointed 12 leaders amongst their community. As I've been Jura, radi Allahu Allahu the reason why, if you go back in, maybe you've attended to Dallas or if you go back and listen to the CETA podcast, you'll recall that we've already talked about all this in detail. The reason why I recount all of this, as I've been to Aurora was present in all three meetings with the
prophets a lot easier. Not just one, not just two, but three, all three meetings. He was part of that first initial half a dozen people that first accepted Islam from Al Madina, munawwara yesterday about that time at the hands of the prophets a lot he sent him. Then he returned back the following year and offered the oath of allegiance. Then he came back the third year, and again repeat offered the oath of allegiance to the prophets, a lot of them and in fact, it's mentioned, he was the first one to step forward and offered the oath of allegiance to the prophets a lot of reasons. So not only was he amongst the first 12 that gave the baotou the prophets a lot he said, um, the oath of
allegiance, but he was the very first one, he was sitting right in the front and the very first advances hand and put his hand into the hands of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm an offered the oath of allegiance. So this is a man of great virtue. This is a man of great, great virtue. And in fact, when wasabi no maitre D Allahu Jelani was sent by the prophets a lot ism as a young preacher, as a young preacher to go and preach Islam there in this this this city of yesterday, which would eventually become Medina and spread the message of Islam there. It was us admins, Aurora, who hosted masaba nomade. He was only close to them. And he was the one that basically set him up with all the
meetings, he was the one that would make sure that run the interference, when sadly more either the Allahu taala and who first became very upset, who's this young guy who's come to our town and started to convert our people, our young people in all of our people. He's converting them to some new strange religion. It was as admin gerada who stepped in and said, Wait a second, wait a second. I'm hosting him. He's my guest
he vouched for masabi nomade and he was the one that who convinced Sagamore either the Lakota language Aren't you first sit down and listen to what he has to say. That was us had been sarara when the prophets Allah He sent him sent. Mousavi nomade the message to conduct the Juma prayer there in the city of Medina conduct the very first jumada was ever conducted in Islam. There in the city of Medina. We talked about this, there are two narrations seminarians say that masabi nomade was the one who conducted the first Juma seminarians, as I've been gerada conducted the first Juma and the reconciliation is the Hatim and the mom was masabi nomade. But the entire Juma was arranged
and organized by Assad binzhou Dora, and he in fact conducted the Jamaat on his property. So even though he might not have been the hottie were the Imam he was the host of the first Juma prayer. He organized the first Juma prayer in the history of December. So this is a very, very blessed man is a very remarkable person and he was a fairly young man. He wasn't very old. He wasn't very young. It's not like he was a teenager, nor was he in his 50s or 60s. He was probably in his 30s.
early to mid 30s, he was a young man. And very tragically, he became extremely ill. About a few months after the prophets, Allah decem arrived there in Medina, he became extremely ill, there's a couple of different variations. Some say that he developed some trouble breathing.
So he had some respiratory issue, maybe some type of infection, or some type of an obstruction or whatever it was, but some narrations mentioned that he had trouble breathing. And the word that's used there in the Arabic language is the Baja OSHA, Visa, or SHA, which basically means like doba from Deborah
So it's like becoming getting strangled. Like your throat closing up on you. Alright, so it's like it's some type of an affliction, or an illness or some type of a problem in the throat where you have trouble breathing. And shofar similarly refers to when a person basically chokes to death. But so he developed whatever it might have been, I don't know what the nature of the issue could be. But he developed some type of an issue where he had trouble breathing. And that led to his passing. Some other narrations actually talked about the fact that he developed a vein or maybe because of that infection or obstruction or whatever yet, as he was nearing death, he was on his deathbed. He also
developed a very, very high fever like he was running a very high fever his body was burning up and they basically needed somebody who'd somebody had to constantly sit by him and kind of you know place like wet towels on him to kind of cool him down because he was burning up from the fever when the profits a lot he soon found out that I had been jurado was so ill, the profits a lobby system came, sat down next to him, and the profits a lot decent placed wet towels on him, and looked after him and nursed him
until eventually as had been surah radi Allahu taala and who passed away in this particular condition.
And the prophets a lot, he said, was very saddened by this and of course, performed his janazah and you know, arrange for the entire burial and the prophets allowed him to part in the washing of his body and in the shrouding of his body and lead him as a prayer and took part in burying him. But the profits a lot he said them at the same time, what happened was some of the Jewish tribes and some of them were not yet own, who had already started to develop a grudge against the profits, a lot of them and against the Muslims. They started making comments, very inappropriate comments, and they basically started saying that
Logan and obion Logan have an Ambien located Mohammedan Abyan, let me unmute Sahiba who they knew that azobenzene Aurora was very close to the profits, a lot of them and the profits a lot of people considered him a very beloved companion and a very close friend. They started to say Logan mahalo gana, Mohammed una bn lemonwood Sahaba. Who if in fact, Muhammad, in reality was a prophet, if he was actually a prophet, then one of his closest friends wouldn't have died like this. Because he was a young man and things like that if he was an elderly man, it'd be whatever, but they started making this propaganda because he was a young man. So they said, Look, this is a sign of the fact that he's
a liar. And he's devoid of any type of good that one of his closest people dies tragically like this. This is proof that he's not a prophet. And the Prophet sallahu sin was very upset when you heard these remarks, of course, because he was already sad at the loss of a very devout companion and a very close, trustworthy, reliable friend. So the prophets a lot of them said bit salmiya to a boo mama Leah who don't laugh at Allah Arab. The prophets a lot of them said that abou mama Assad been surah his death is actually a huge, you know, it is it is very bad for these Yahoo than these mafia goon who are saying these types of things, meaning that his death is a blessing for him. And
it's a blessing for the community, because the last part of what's out has kept something great in storing in reward for him. And we understand that Allah subhanaw taala took him back in alley Lego in a garage. But his death will be a curse upon these people who say these inappropriate things about him in his passing. And the prophets a lot of them said well I'm legal enough See, when Allah sahibi min Allah he she and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I do not control my own fate, nor do I control the fate of my good friend, as admins were Allah. All of this is in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala in AlLahi wa alayhi raggio All right, so this was that first passing of someone
within their community. There are some other narrations which actually talk about the fact
Well, actually before I mentioned that, so as I've been Gerardo was from Banana,
banana jar. They were the ones who lived immediately around the machine. They were that that was a neighborhood of Medina where the masjid was located. And so he was from banana Jarrah and he was the leader of the Jordan Athene the leaders, the organic community organizers, the prophets a lot of these amount appointed, he was a community organizer for boonah job after assignments euro pass and everyone you know spent a few days you know, kind of getting past it and mourning his loss. Some of the leaders of banana jar, they came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saludos Hola, la he's a lot of Islam and Ulema who not even bother. Mamata Asad bin surah they came to the profits, a lot of them
and they said to get O Messenger of Allah appoint a follow up leader for us. appoint somebody in the place of us have been sarara to be our community.
so the prophets a lot of them said unto a huali y'all are my uncle's. Remember banana jar was the was the the tribe that the great grandmother of the prophets a lot he was from. I've done we've done it his mother of the muttalib his mother was from banana job. So the prophets a lot of them said technically all of my uncles like we're relationship were related through my great grandmother. So y'all are like uncles to me until mcquoddy. While Anna be my FICO and I am amongst you now I live here amongst you as well. For Anunnaki bukem I will be your community organizer. I myself personally will serve my family I will be the community organizer. And the narrations mentioned that the banana
jar they used to for ketamine fugly Bernina, Jarrod Levy, and levy Yata Dunleavy Allah pomi him and Ghana Rasulullah he salami Shimla Kiba him and banana Jarrah actually used to brag about this with the other families and the other tribes that Oh, yeah, who's your community organizer?
And they knew very well who the community organizer was, so they would, you know, catch up that Oh, by the way, who's your Who's your community organizer? And they'd be like, so and so and be like, Oh, do you know our community organizers? And they're like, yes, we know your community organizer. You want me to tell you and remind you again, what our community organizer is Muhammad Rasul. Allah is Allah Islam. So these to brag about this. And that's not a bad thing necessarily. It's like a fun Leela, right? It's a virtue. And they used to be so happy and everybody loves the prophets, a lot of them. So it was like a nice little playful thing among some of the tribes and the family members
that every single time this conversation would come up, but no, no, God used to always make sure they reminded everybody in the room that let's not forget the profits, a lot of them, our community organizer, alright, so they used to always brag about this particular fact. And that was a source of pride for them. And of course, this is a positive source of pride. This is a good source of pride in the fact that they had a relationship with Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
There are now what I wanted to mention was, there are some narrations, there are some weaker narrations to the effect that
had been jurado was not the very first person to pass away.
He was in the very first person to pass away in in amongst the Muslims of Medina. Brother, the very first one to pass away was a very, very elderly person, who was already bedridden by the time the prophets Allah December even arrived at the place of bobine. His name was called Bienal hidden kulsoom yBnL him.
And he was in fact, the gentleman
in whose home the Sahabi in whose home the profits, a lot of them stayed in at night, the nights that he the days that he remained in hoba. He's asleep, sleep in the home of gloomy vanille hidden. All right, so this was but he was a very elderly man, like he was a senior citizen. And he basically passed away during those same days, because he was such an elderly person. So seminarians mentioned that, and again, there's not really a conflict, because the way that we reconciled the generations is consuming an idiom was from Cuba, not from Medina. He was from Cuba, not from Medina. And he passed away in the days of Cuba, while Assad bin jurado was for the first Medina and he was the
first Medina and Muslim, the first madonie to basically pass away. All right, so this is that first experience of this community had, and that was the first death that they experienced as a community. And it really bonded them together and brought them all together.
Now, the other experience that I talked about is a birth in the community that can oftentimes be, you know, a huge celebration, and it can be a huge occasion. And especially, you know, if you remember, if you're talking about a new community, everyone would remember this is the first child that was born in our community. This was the first awkward God that we had in this community, right, everyone would recall that would remember, remember that event. So the first aka the first birth that they experienced within this community was the birth of Abdullah Abu Zubaydah, radi Allahu taala and Omar Abdullah Zubaydah, the Allahu Allah Allah was the first birth in this community. I'm
delighted new Zubaydah Of course his father Zubaydah the Allahu taala anew and his mother is a smart been to Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala on her. All right are the Allahu taala on Houma. So this is a very blessed child. Right and of course, I've done a bad job he would go on to become a very notable Companion of the prophets a lot a sermon later on would even do great services in the cause and name of Islam even after the time of Rasul Allah. He said, I'm doing this
Era of the bulevar rashidun. All right, so Abdullah bin zubaid came from the family of the prophets a lot of time on his father's side. And he came from the family of Abu Bakar. On his mother's side, his grandfather was none other than Abu Bakr radi Allahu talana. All right. And so this was a very, very blessed child. And of course, his aunt was also the mother of the believers, the wife of the prophets a lot, he set them each Sunday for the Allahu taala and her and she was also one of his teachers. So after the time of the prophets, a lot of them you would actually learn from his arms and narrate a lot of ahaadeeth from his arms and gain a lot of knowledge from her. And he was
actually one of the communicators. Whenever Of course, Abu Bakr radi Allahu talana would just go and talk to each other the Allahu taala because that's his daughter, but when the Allahu taala and who was halifa when Omar was Khalifa and he needed to ask questions of Russia, and he needed to go and consult with our Isha. Many times he would send the Abdullah bin Zubaydah to go and consult with her so that he could bring it back and then you know, firsthand, communicate to everyone exactly what he got from it, Chateau de Allahu taala on her. All right, because it was more direct communication, her being Ayesha being his aunt. She didn't have to do a job and from him. So Abdullah bin Zubaydah
would be able to go and sit down in front of her This is Carla, this is his aunt, right maternal aunt, you would be able to go sit down in front of her and ask her the question. Yeah, hello.
Oh my beloved, aren't ya? Me? No mother of the believers, right. What is this? This the answer to such and such question? How do we handle this is this what did the prophets allows you to enter? You would give him the full explanation. So he's getting it directly Tilak the end and the shadow the Allahu taala Anna, and then you will bring that back in lecture that intimacy period. Basically what is the fatwa from our mother? Chateau de Allahu taala. And so Abdullah bin Javaid is a very, very blessed child and even his own mother You know, a lot of times you know when when you when you have such one sibling is so remarkable. You can actually sometimes neglect or forget to notice the
virtues of the other sibling, a snob Entebbe bacara the Allahu taala and not the Allahu taala Anima she was great and amazing in her own right. When you study the life and the accomplishments and the knowledge and the the generosity and the activism of a smarter the Allahu taala now you'll be blown away. Unbelievable, remarkable woman. So this is Abdullah bin Javaid. Now basically the narrations mentioned
that when the when when a smarter the Allahu Allah Allah made the migration when she migrated from Mecca to Medina, she was already pregnant. She was already expecting a child. And so she delivered shortly, maybe a month or two or a couple of months a few months after arriving in Al Madina, munawwara some narrations mentioned, up to five months after arriving, but nevertheless, she was still about halfway through her pregnancy. Right when she arrived there in Medina. And then maybe about four or five months down the road she delivered this child. Now again, there are some narrations which mentioned that Norman been Rashid, radi Allahu taala and who was also born around
that same time. So the way that we understand it is the very first child of the unsought. The very first child of the unsalted that was born after the hit gerada migration of the profits along the zone was a Norman Eben Bashir, radi Allahu taala and Houma. And the very first child from the Mahajan rune that was born in the city of Medina was Abdullah Abu Zubaydah, the Allahu taala and Houma
and what was also very, very interesting is that after the Muslims, they arrived in Al Madina, munawwara and the Jews in the monaci una Medina were very upset that these quote unquote foreigners have shown up here in our land,
and have you know, turned everything upside down when they hadn't really caused any problems. It was just the fact that all the people in Medina were basically accepting Islam. And everybody were becoming like brothers and sisters amongst one another. Right? They were they were basically
they they were they were taking on their Islamic family, their Muslim family, right? Because remember the unsalted had Arab tribes of Medina beef ozen husbands had been fighting each other for generations. Now they put all of that aside and they're all like, we're almost some brothers. And we're all Muslim sisters. And then Mahajan don't show up a bunch of foreigners show up and they're like your brothers and your sisters do and all of a sudden everyone's one big happy Muslim family. And they are who they are. And some of them are not at home who used to like the trouble, right because they were able to pull the strings and basically maintain them.
type of, you know, maintain some type of advantage in the community through all this political maneuvering. They were like this has taken all the fun out of everything. This is completely relegated our power. I have no leverage. I have no, you know, effect on the community. Everybody loves each other. Everybody's all brothers and all sisters, like this is this has ruined everything for me. So they were very hateful. They were very spiteful. And they said, you know, these foreigners showed up and they ruined everything. We had a good thing going over here. I'm Filipino Raven salutes and I had a good thing going. I was basically running this town. This is my town. And
this Muhammad shows up sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with his band of like these these these poor foreigners, the muhajir una de Allahu talanoa. And they messed up everything I had going on. So they were very hateful like this, and they basically spread a rumor. But the Bella Houma, aniyah hoody, Anna huzzah Harun, hasta, LA, de la, whom, by the his Rahim Allah don't write that a rumor, they spread a rumor in the community that we got some of the magicians, and we got some of the soothsayers and some of the magicians to cast an evil spell on these foreigners that showed up in our land without our permission. We've cast an evil spell on them, we've done black magic to them,
that they will have no more children, their women will go barren, their men will be infertile, these people will never have any children, their generations or progenies will die here. Right. So they started, you know, spreading all these rumors, trying to freak people out, cause paranoia in the community. And of course, the Muslims had solid demand. They didn't believe in, you know, mumbo jumbo and Hocus Pocus and all this type of stuff. But at the same time, you know, they were just, it was very hurtful. And there was some nervousness at the very least, you know, amongst some of the Muslims there that could these people be doing some type of black magic maybe? Right? Could these
people try to harm us maybe even so he started getting worried. And next thing you know, a smarter the Allahu talana gives birth to Abdullah Abu Zubaydah, a healthy boy a healthy child. And he brings his you know, they bring this baby out the next day, the father brings his baby out the next day. And all the Muslims rejoiced. Everybody was so happy, especially the Mahajan. Because they realize that all of this nonsense that some of the Jewish tribes in the mafia own are saying this is all nonsense is all garbage. And we don't need to listen to any of this. Mashallah Allah subhanaw taala has blessed us with a beautiful healthy child in our community and put their fears basically to
The other thing that's very interesting is that the narration mentions that
after us model the Allahu taala Allah gave birth to Abdullah bin zubaid, radi Allahu Allah Anima. And maybe after a couple of days when she was able to kind of get up on her feet.
She comes to the prophets a lot of the time with the child to present the child to the prophets, a lot of them herself.
And she wants to present the child right? It's like they're like family, so she wants to present the child herself to the profits along with him. So she says she narrates this herself. In this as mentioned my mom behati Rahim Allahu taala in his life, so she says Thoma it to be here. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I brought my baby to the profits. A lot of the seminar handed him to the prophets a lot. So keep in mind, the Prophet says him as a father, of course, he's raised, you know, four amazing daughters. Right? So she says, he took the child for other houfy hedges he put him in his lap, right? He cradled me put him in his lap through mudarabah template and he said,
somebody Bring me a date for mother ha ha somata fella Fifi. And she says that he basically took just a small little bit of the date, and he chewed it up inside of his mouth.
And he took a little bit of it, and he applied it from the head of NACA who he did the technique, and the technique is after basically chewing it up completely. Then he took just, you know, like his saliva with the date, I guess you can say the date juice or whatever mixed up inside of it. He took it and then he applied it to the upper part of the mouth of the baby.
Right, he applied it to the upper part of the mouth of the baby through Maha Naka, who, and she says, For kind of, oh Wella che in dalla jofa who Hippo rasulillah he sala de ser she says the first thing like the first thing from like food or substance that entered into the stomach of my child was that was mixed with the saliva of the of the process.
It's a Lola while he was on. So she says, I mean as a huge blessing that this was a huge blessing for child through my Hanako who beat me rotten through medalla who were Baraka Allah, He, then the prophets Allah they sent me lots of to offer my child. So this part of the Sunnah of the prophets a lot, so received the child hold the child, he did the technique of the child, and then make the offer the child so medalla who made the offer the child well Baraka Allah, he made lots of to offer Buttercup on the child made the child be blessed said Mashallah, he's beautiful. He's amazing, healthy, like he said, a lot of good positive things. he congratulated me and she says, what kind of
Oh, Willa, mo luden, will lead to Islam. This was a first child born in Islam, what she means by Islam is in the community of Al Madina, munawwara, right. This was a first child, I was born in the community of Medina, to munawwara.
And so these were a couple of the first experiences that the Muslims had there in their new fledgling community of Medina. And this was a huge source of bonding, first and foremost through the passing of a very young, you know, very active, valued and valuable member of their community. And then secondly, through the birth of a child, and the joy and the happiness that comes along with that. So these were a couple of the first. Now why I chose to kind of mention this as well, is because, again, this, you know, when we talk about Medina sometimes, right, it's just legendary epic community, that sometimes it's helpful to kind of remember that these were not these were people,
these are human beings, exemplary people. So how about the laguan, but they were human beings, right? People whose who died, right, there were deaths.
There were births. There were good times or bad times, there were happy times, there were sad times. There were articles, but there were funerals. Or it was a community of people, a living, breathing community that had these types of community experiences. And from the very beginning the prophets a lot, he sort of actively took part in the janazah, and then actively took part in the, you know, congratulating, and, you know, celebrating the birth of the child, to show that this is equally as important in the building and establishing of a community. It is not just buildings that make a community isn't it's not just formal receptions, and formal occasions that make a community. It's
not just an election, or a board or a website, or a list of people or a membership list that makes a community in these types of real human organic experiences that make a community. And we sometimes need to remember that. And I say this, you know, as a positive, I say this as a positive. Because, you know, I mentioned this quite often, but I just mentioned it to share, like, why, why I'm talking about this. I was actually born and raised here in this community.
You know, 12 miles from here.
12, maybe 15 miles from here, down the road in down 360. in Arlington, I was born and raised in this area. And we used to be a really, really small community.
When a child was born, everybody knew about it, and everybody celebrated it, everybody got together. It's like a child was born in everyone's family.
We were one family. And when one person passed away, it was a tragedy for the whole community. And everyone got together, everyone cried together, and everyone prayed together. And sometimes when communities become very big, which is its own blessing, Mashallah that's happened sooner or later, like this, when communities get really, really big. Forget about hundreds, there's 1000s 10s of 1000s
hundreds of 1000s of people in a community.
Sometimes we can kind of lose sight of what's important at times. But it's important to still be very, very connected.
You're very important things. Right? We should know, right? who just had a child and nothing else, shake their brother's hand. Smile in his face, congratulate him, ask him the name of his child. Give him a hug. Right when somebody passes away, I should stay informed of that.
I should come to and participate in the janazah I should find the family members and hug them and consoled them and make to offer them
and let them know that I'm there for them. These are important community experiences. We are human beings. We're people we feel.
We laugh and we cry.
And part of being an oma right? All the rhetoric aside slogans or slogans
Right, we shouldn't become a community of slogans. Or you just have cliches and slogans.
One family, brothers and sisters in Islam, we have to actually live it. Be brothers and sisters in Islam, be a family. And that's what lets your family members know you care about them. And you keep you know, you keep up with them, and you know what's going on with them. And you cry with them, and you laugh with them, and you celebrate with them and you mourn with them. The profits of lightsome was very particular about this. Right that we know about this later on later, later, later, much later, almost a decade later,
when the community was so huge.
That now it's 10s and 1000s of people in Medina itself, and around Medina. And everyday there are tribes coming and going coming and going coming and going right?
everyday. There's old caravans convoys coming and going
really busy, there's a lot going on. And the profits of luxury cars older, older, and his health is kind of up and down a little bit now.
And so what ends up happening, and he's traveling, you know, back and forth,
going from front to back, then he's going for 100 and then he's going for his rotator book, right so he's IN and OUT IN and OUT IN and OUT himself as well.
And a woman passes away in the community.
Right the woman that used to sweep to my shin passes away in the community.
And when the profits a lot he finds out when the profits a lot he finds out that this woman passed away. He's so upset.
This is where she, she they say she passed away out of Salalah so upset.
Why don't you people tell me about these things. You should tell me about these things. You're busy out. So not too busy for this.
Not too busy for this, I need to know about this stuff. And he goes to her grave. And he prays for her there on her grave at her grave makes to offer that's a community.
Right. So remember this and strive for this. And this was how part of how the profits a lot is from didn't just build a machine and make a treaty and have political alliances. part of how we establish a community was to celebrate the birth of a child and to mourn the loss of a valued beloved community member. And that's what brought them together and made the beautiful illustrious community of Medina to munawwara.
I wanted to you know, at the end of the verse here, just wanted to take the opportunity. I know there were a lot more people here and so often a shine it was probably announced in but Mashallah, you know, y'all are folks that come every single week and sit in the darkness to learn about the life of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm part of the responsibility. And this probably isn't a great advertising pitch to come to, to keep to keep coming to the Sierra class. But I have to mention, you know what I have to mention what is necessary to mention Alhamdulillah it's a great blessing of Allah Subhana Allah that Allah has given us the opportunity to sit down every week and learn about
the beautiful life of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the prophet of Allah Salaam, it's a huge blessing. But that blessing comes with a responsibility, a very easy responsibility, a very easy to fulfill responsibility. And that is part of our responsibility is now to share this light
to share this guidance to share this beneficial knowledge with other people, Muslims and non Muslims alike. We have to communicate the life of the prophets a lot, not just through our words, but more importantly, through our actions
to the rest of humanity and to the rest of mankind.
And our hamdulillah you know, I always I always mentioned this here, and I feel like at some point, it probably gets nauseating. But I am telling you, in all honesty, it comes from the heart. I sincerely honestly mean and that's why I just mentioned a while ago, I was born and raised here. There wasn't even a community here in Irving. Now there's not just a community nerving there is the community in Irving Mashallah shout about a koala hamdulillah right. And so there's a lot of great stuff going on, inshallah, not this weekend, but the following weekend, the weekend of March 15. inshallah, here at ici, they're going to be having the annual dour conference. And, you know,
there's there's a whole slew of different activities planned from Friday, about focusing on Dawa to Friday evening lectures and activities. On Saturday, all day long. There will be workshops and activities and programs and lectures for the whole community q&a sessions. Right. really beneficial stuff focused around the theme and the subject of dour and particularly on Saturday. We'll also be an open house all day long, where people can
Come in and visit the masjid and ask questions and get to know things about Islam. So inshallah it'll be a really valuable weekend full of different activities, and they're bringing in some very special guests and hamdulillah
I'll be here personally participating, but I honestly I'm just here to show support, and I'm only coming like, I'll only be speaking because they asked me to speak. But honestly, otherwise I'd be coming to just attend and benefit as well. But we'll be having some specialists, people who are really doing some remarkable stuff in the area of Dawa inshallah, they'll be coming here to share their knowledge, their experience and their wisdom in the field of Dharma with us. There's a brother by the name of Hamza sources, who's from the UK from England, Mashallah, he's done a lot of work online. He's very popular on the internet on YouTube. He's done some remarkable stuff. He runs a
dour organization there in the UK, so he's coming and of course brother, Medina and Fletcher from Houston, who runs the project Islamic Spanish, he's going to be coming as well inshallah and sharing his knowledge and his insights and his experience. So it's going to be a very, very beneficial weekend. So let's inshallah try to come attend and learn about our responsibility towards humanity, when Allahu taala so make sure everyone who's here please attend and spread the word to others. More importantly, I know all of y'all will attend, but please spread the word to others as well. Just Akuma located on May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us all the ability to practice everything you've
said and heard Savannah like it would be handy subhanak Elohim kondik Mashallah. La ilaha illa Anta socrata one or two
