In these podcasts we uncover one chapter after another from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in an attempt to learn about him, love him, and better ourselves through his example, immersion, mentorship, companionship and tibia. These are just a few of the things we offer alongside knowledge of the prophetic Biography at the theater intensive, two weeks, dedicated to the study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his noble characteristics. So this winter in sha Allah join me in Dallas, Texas, alongside your classmates from all over the world, to learn the story of the life of the best of humanity, the mercy to mankind, the prophet muhammad sallallahu

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

alayhi wa sallam, go to Cedar intensive.com to register, or for more info.

00:00:53--> 00:01:05

Okay, Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah, who Allah and he was such a huge marine shala continuing with our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, a sirata number we had the prophetic biography

00:01:06--> 00:01:47

where we are right now what we're studying right now, because I'm going to be picking up from where we left off. But I'd like to kind of bring everybody up to speed where we are. We are in the ninth year of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. What does that exactly mean? What that means is the fact that the Macan period has passed 13 years of trial and tribulation. And then there have been nine years of the profits a lump sum residing in the city of Medina. Now, a lot of that the early part of it, the first five, six years of it, were also filled with a lot of conflict and a lot of danger and a lot of uncertainty, uncertainty in the sense that there were a lot of enemies

00:01:47--> 00:02:07

out to get them. And the Muslim community has gone through a lot and they've survived through a lot. And they've been able to get to this particular point now, where the Treaty of who they BIA happened. After that, they went in they performed Ramadan, they were able to establish peaceful alliances with not only the people in Macau, but the Bedouin tribes around the city of Medina.

00:02:08--> 00:02:44

That proceeded forward by eventually the people of Macau violating the Treaty of Abia they violated the treaty. And when they did that the profits, a lot of them held them accountable, because it wasn't just about, you know, looking for an excuse to attack them, but rather it was more so about the fact that the way they violated the treaty was that they massacred another tribe that was included within the treaty and the profits, a lot of them stood up for the rights of those people and defended their rights. But nevertheless, the conquest of Makkah has happened and what that means is the profits a lot of the Muslims peacefully enter Makkah, and the city of Makkah basically enters

00:02:44--> 00:02:50

into the fold of Islam. And now Mecca is basically part of the Muslim land.

00:02:51--> 00:03:34

And after that point, the prophets a lot of Islam returns back to the city of Medina. They settled down in Medina, things seem to be taking a turn for the better all the way up from Habana all the way down to the city of Mecca. Every it's all basically Muslim area now, there's similarly satellite's Muslim communities in places like Bahrain and Yemen and other places. So Mashallah Islam is flourishing, and Islam is growing. And the number of Muslims is also increasing. But at this particular time, there's a very, you know, serious threats. And the serious threat comes from the Roman Empire. So the Roman Empire, basically, the prophets, a lot of them received news, he received

00:03:34--> 00:04:15

intelligence, that the Roman Empire is basically sending down an army. And it's rumored to be anywhere between 100,000 to 300,000 soldiers. Now that is a huge number, even by today's standards, but at that particular time in the world's history, that is an unbelievable number. That is an unfathomable number of soldiers. And that's a very scary thought and idea. So the prophets a lot, he said him decides, you know, to approach this particular threat and make a show of force that we will stand our ground, and that we will not be threatened, we will not be bullied. And so the prophets allottee, some gathers together, the Muslims, about 30,000, Muslims gathered together, and they

00:04:15--> 00:04:53

begin to march towards the north, to basically face off against this Roman army that is approaching them, or that is rumored to be coming towards them. This is known as the campaign and the expedition of taboos to book and that is a city all the way to the north. And that's what the event is where we're studying. So what we've talked about so far is how the profits a lot isn't prepared for the expedition in the campaign of the book. And secondly, what we talked about is the prophets, a lot of them know Muslims depart, and basically how the journey of taboo goes, what we're going to be talking about is two things where we're going to be talking about today's two things, number one, on

00:04:53--> 00:05:00

their way to to book as they are going there 30,000 Muslims under the leadership of the prophets, a lot of them are

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

marching towards the north, towards the city of Dubuque to basically potentially face off against a humongous army that outnumbers them anywhere from three to one, two all the way 10 to one, all right, and they're going there to face off against them, and to basically make a strong show of force, that we are not going to be bullied, we're not going to be threatened, and we're not going to be pushed around by you, we are going to take a stand and defend ourselves. And so they're marching towards the north. Now what happens as they're marching towards the north, a particular very powerful experience occurs. The prophets, a lot of these women, the Muslims happen by a place, and

00:05:37--> 00:06:16

the place was known by a lot of people at that particular time as Egypt and hedger. Now, what what was this place? This was the place where a very ancient people resided. And these ancient people who resided there were called thumb mood was the people of the mood. Now, the Quran talks about the people of the mood, many, many different places. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to take a quick sidebar, I'm going to explain the story of the people of the mood and with a mood, or with a mood, I'm going to explain their story that from the Quranic narrative, so that we understand exactly what happened with these people. And why is this such a significant place? And when they

00:06:16--> 00:06:56

come there, we see that the profits are large and makes a really big deal about that place. He's very serious, and he makes a very big deal about that place. Why is it such a big deal? And why is this tone so serious? Right? So to understand that, let me quickly share with you what transpired with the people of the mood, who are these people? What happened with them? What does operon tell us about them? So the Quran tells us that the people of the mood were an ancient people. And they were actually a very large, very powerful tribe, who resided in Arabia. These are one of the few ancient peoples that the Quran tells us about that were actually from the Arab lands, they were Arab people,

00:06:56--> 00:07:32

they were aerated, you know, they were from that region. A lot of times the different narratives that we hear about like Ibrahim alayhis, Salam and Musa alayhis, salam, and, you know, a lot of New Hollywood setup, these were not these, these people were not necessarily from that Arabian peninsula, that region, but the people are familiar from that region. So this was a very large and a very powerful tribe, where they're placed timewise Allah knows best, that's something that Quran does not talk about, because the Quran doesn't get into those particular details. The Quran moreso wants us to pay attention to the actual story and the lessons there in all right. So this was a very

00:07:32--> 00:07:46

large, powerful tribe that did not believe in God, they worship the idols, and they did not believe in God. Number two, the second fact about them, they were people who were very gifted by By Allah, how were they gifted, that

00:07:48--> 00:08:26

their experience, there are some narrations that talk about their history, that they had a lot of trouble, kind of like living in that area, because they used to build and construct homes. It was a desert, it was a mountainous region, strong winds used to blow through there. And so what would happen is that their homes would become damaged repeatedly. And it was also very hot. And so it was very difficult for them to live there. So eventually, Allah subhanaw taala granted them the gift, they were very talented. And what they started doing was they started carving out homes within the mountains. Now there's, this is a place where some historians and scholars of the Quran, they

00:08:26--> 00:09:06

differ, they split up into two different opinions. All right, some scholars are of the position that their gift was basically what we would consider in the realm of like architecture, engineering. All right, they were just very gifted engineers. And they were able to construct tools, and they were able to carve out homes within these mountains. Number one, some other say no, no, it was actually something a little bit more remarkable than that. And there's evidence of this within the Quran as well. Where can we get a terminology valuable, you can follow him. Allah subhanaw taala says they would carve out homes within their mountains for themselves very, very easily, almost like it was a

00:09:06--> 00:09:42

game like with their bare hands. And this is something a lot tells us about Tao, the prophet David, the prophet Alayhi Salam where Allah says, What ln Allah who had we made, we made iron soft in his hands. It was like a miracle that would only Sam could take iron in his hands and just mold it with his bare hands. It was a miracle. So there is evidence in the Quran of the fact that no, it wasn't just the fact that they were just very gifted engineers, where they figured out a way to carve homes within mountains. No, it was actually something quite miraculous. Where with their bare hands, they could they could move rocks, they could move stones they could completely like carve out a hole

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

inside of a mountain with just their bare hands. Allah gave them that gift and that's completely possible. Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah knows best. Nevertheless, these people carved out homes within these mountains. So now they're very powerful, a very strong, a very large tribe of people. They're blessed by Allah. On top of that, they have this great

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

gift that Allah has given them where they carved mountain, they carve out homes within their mountains. And those homes are actually preserved till today those places are carved within the mountains. They're still there till today and you can go there and see it. And it's actually quite remarkable. So, but the problem was that they didn't believe in Allah, they worshiped idols, and they disbelieved in disbelieved in a lot. And because of that, they eventually deteriorated into becoming a very kind of evil people. They had a lot of crime and a lot of different sins that had become very prevalent in their community. So as Allah subhanaw taala would do, Allah Spano rajala

00:10:35--> 00:11:15

deployed a prophet to them. One of the people who one of the young men who grew up amongst the people, his name was solidly his name was Sally way that's a Moodle column. Sally had that we sent to the people of the mood their brothers Satya, so this young man who grew up amongst them named Sally, who was a remarkable young man, no, but you know, he had admirable character, he had never done anything bad or wrong. He had never lied. He was a very, very, you know, admirable man from the community. Allah subhanaw taala gave him Prophethood and Allah subhanho wa Taala, gave him revelation and made him a prophet, and then gave him a mission. And the mission was, now go and

00:11:15--> 00:11:29

preach to your people. Talk to your people, tell them to change their ways. Tell them tell them to believe in Allah tell them to be grateful for the blessings Allah has given to them. He came with them. He came to them with the prophetic message as we see many prophets came to their people.

00:11:31--> 00:11:56

This is where the story takes a turn. Not only did they not believe in him, but they decided to make a mockery of him. They started to mock him and they started to make fun of him. And a lot of talks about this in the Quran. Why am I attached to him, but Rasulullah Kenobi, he says he on every single time we sent a messenger to some of these people, they would always make a mockery, and they would make fun of the messenger of the Prophet. So they decided to make a game of this. They said,

00:11:57--> 00:12:10

Would you be willing to prove to us that you're a prophet? He said, I can definitely try. So they said, okay, we want a miracle. He said, all pray to Allah, what would you like?

00:12:11--> 00:12:47

And so they went on to say that they were just kind of gathered there. They were having a conversation. So they pointed out a mountain and they said, We want a camel to come out from the mountain NACA. NACA is not just a camel, but it's like a chic camel. Alright, so we want to Shi Campbell to come out of that mountain. It's a very strange, bizarre idea. Right? It's almost kind of like something living to come out of something that's not living. But on top of that, there was almost like an element of mockery in it. Like come up with the most craziest idea that you can write, I want a camel to just come out of this mountain. He said, Are you sure they said we're sure.

00:12:48--> 00:13:02

The Quran talks about this. So he prayed to Allah and Allah subhanaw taala made a camel come out from the mountain has he Napa to lucky level this is the she camel brought forth for you by God.

00:13:04--> 00:13:22

Then the story goes forward they said well we want proof to see whether it's actually a real creature or not. So we want the she camel to give birth we want the she camel to give birth to prove that it's real it's living. So he makes to our to our last panel challenge the she camel gives birth.

00:13:24--> 00:14:02

Now, there's this magnificent and it was actually said to be quite huge. There's this magnificent huge creature and actually some of the companions of the prophets a lot assembly talked about the fact that the prophets a lot of them pointed to the place in the mountain where he said this is where the she camel came out from and they said we could see like there was almost like a crack in the mountain that sort of the mountain and opened up in the sheep camel and walked out. And then the she camel gave birth to a to two offspring to a baby camel. Now that these two camels were here, the prophet SAW me I said to them, Look the command from God is have the Hinako to La hillicon have the

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

inocula hillegom la shabu shabu

00:14:05--> 00:14:43

shabu shabu yamalube. Alright, so do not touch it while itema suha Do not mess with this animal Do not mess with this creature. Do not violate this creature number one. And number two, this camel. So this camel was so huge that when it would go to the watering hole, it would basically kind of take over the watering hole and it would drink all the water and it would eat an abundance of food. And so the people started getting kind of nervous by saying that look and drink all this water and eat all this food. And you're telling us not to touch it not to mess with it. We don't know what to do. We don't know what we're supposed to do. So finally he said okay, Allah has made the rule that the

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

she camel will drink and eat one day and take a day off and that day off will be the day that you will go and you can use the water into food and things like that. And you can graze your animals on that day. And Subhanallah not only just this arrangement was made

00:15:00--> 00:15:11

There was a miracle within it. The Quran talks about the fact that the day that she Campbell would go and drink from the water, it would finish up all the water because it was this huge animal. When it would go and graze it would eat up all the grass in the area.

00:15:13--> 00:15:33

But then what would happen is when they would go to sleep at night, when they would wake up in the morning, they would find that all the grass had regrown overnights, and the water was completely full again, overnight, I lost power, which Allah would miraculously replenish all the supplies. So they had what they needed. But this continued on. But the problem was that they still didn't believe in Allah, even though they witnessed this miracle.

00:15:34--> 00:15:44

And this evil within them continued. So what did they end up doing? Some evil people got together amongst them will kind of decide what kind of decide to refuse to do

00:15:46--> 00:16:01

that there were these nine very evil people that it talks about. There were these nine, like almost gangsters in the in the tribe. And they were problematic people, they always made trouble. And they were always the source of all the trouble. They got together. And they said we should take out this camera.

00:16:03--> 00:16:14

We should take out this Campbell, right? Nobody bosses us around. Nobody tells us what to do. Let's take up this camera, firefighter who have a demon. They ended up attacking the camera and they killed the camel and its offspring.

00:16:15--> 00:16:31

And Allah subhanaw taala said that that led to their demise in their downfall. What ended up happening when the prophet SAW they saw this, he said, What did you do, you just invited the punishment from God, because it's such a direct disrespect and defiance and obedience to Allah.

00:16:32--> 00:17:05

And what ended up happening was, as a person tells us, a terrible punishment came upon them for three days. He told them that just retreat within your homes and live. And for those three days, it's as if everyone got sick, and ill. And then finally on the third day, the Quran talks about this, that this loud screen the Quran uses the word say, which is a scream almost, but it can also be translated as an explosion. This loud blast or explosion occurred, which basically just killed everyone.

00:17:06--> 00:17:28

It killed everyone, it finished them all off. And they were all done. Okay. And in fact, so. So this is that place where these people used to reside. And this is the place where those people, they defied God, and where they killed this miracle that was given to them by Allah. And they eventually died there. They were destroyed there. So this is that place.

00:17:29--> 00:17:43

So now going back to the story that we were talking about the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, along with 30,000 of his companions. They are marching towards the north to the city of Dubuque. And as they're marching north, they pass by the place where this occurred.

00:17:44--> 00:18:22

So when they got there, the narrations, they tell us the historical events, the Sahaba, who were there, the companions were there. They tell us that when they arrived there, there was, you know, a well, there were some wells that were there in the area. And so obviously, they had been traveling for a while they're traveling through the desert. And for the record, this expedition of to book was in the summertime, it was in the summertime. All right. So imagine in Arabia in the summertime, and we can imagine that very well in Texas, right? The summertime, it was very hot, scorching heat, okay, and it was actually said to be one of the most severe summers they had experienced. So

00:18:22--> 00:19:00

obviously, everyone's really tired and fatigued and thirsty and exhausted and, you know, sweaty and right, so everyone's really beat down by the journey, and by the circumstances. So when they arrived there, and they see some wells, a bunch of people who were there in the Muslim army who are marching they ran up to the wells and they started getting water and they started drinking water and they started filling up their water you know, water sacks like their their their water canisters, and they started you know, you know, washing themselves and then some of them also started to take some of the water to start cooking food with it and this and that, and when the prophets a lot of them

00:19:00--> 00:19:42

saw this, the prophets a lot he said I'm told them that absolutely no, he said Latisha Lee boo Minh Mahi Harsha do not drink anything from this water if you filled up your water socks, dump all that water out. Well that's what the old man who lives Sala do not make will do from this water for the sake of the prayer don't do will do from this water. Well, man Academy's agenda and agenda agenda Whoo hoo for the flu and Ebola, that if you've taken some of the water and you've mixed it up, they used to do this thing where they would have dry like kind of like powder that used to be crushed up like wheat and barley and oats and dates, and they would kind of crush it up and make like a powder

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

out of it. So think of almost kind of like like protein powder, right? So they used to carry this powder with them for travel. So whenever they would come across water, they wouldn't put water into it and mix it up and then they would drink it and that was a form of nourishment and sustenance. So he said if you've done if you mix some of your mix into the water

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

personally do not drink it do not consume it, but serve it to the animals give it to the animals for them. Well that's absolute minutiae and and if you started to cook some food in that water, dumped that water out and do not eat anything of that the profits a lot of them said do not do that. This is a very, very, you know, it's almost like a cursed place. And I know that that idea that notion can be a bit strange how can I play speakers, but we understand just like a place can be blessed. A place can be cursed. Allah spiderwort Allah Subhana Allah The Asahi Agha de les laminal Mashallah haram lol masjidul, aka saw Allah de Baraka hola who when Allah talks about Masood Azhar Jerusalem,

00:20:41--> 00:21:18

Allah subhanaw taala talks about the fact that we have blessed that region in that area. We know Mecca and Medina are blessing sacred regions, right the places Amina amazonica, out of where we perform the Hajj, those are blessings lands. Okay, so the prophets, a lot of them said, This isn't a bad place. This is a curse place. Something terrible happened here do not consume anything from here. Furthermore, the prophets, a lot of them some of the Sahaba were kind of curious. And they said, Can we go they could see in the mountains, that these those places that were carved out within the mountains, they said, Can we go exploring there? The profits, a lot of them said Latin Hello, my

00:21:18--> 00:21:56

Sakina Lady vellamo and fussa who do not go into their homes, because these are people who, who, who ruin themselves. They disobeyed God and they ruin themselves. So don't go in there. Don't be a tourist, don't be a tourist, right? There's a place to be a tourist, there's a time to be a tourist. Right. But there's some places where we also have to have a level of seriousness. Right? When we go to Mecca, Medina, we don't act like tourists. We shouldn't act like tourists, right? Like, ooh, it's not it's not Disneyland. It's McCain. Medina, writes a hot domain, right, you have to have a level of seriousness, there's a spiritual pleasure there to worship, you're there to worship Allah

00:21:56--> 00:22:33

subhanho wa Taala and respect the place. So similarly, the Prophet sallallahu somebody saying you can't just constantly be in tourist mode. But you also have to love love a level of reflection and seriousness about where you are the prophets a lot he said, I'm said Illa and Saku Burkina, and you see back home with Rama Saba home, unless you approach this place, very mindful and fearful of the punishment of God and asking a lot to protect you from the punishment that be felled these people, like some spiritual serious needs to be there. And this is the balance in the life of the prophets. A lot of the some that very honestly, we struggle with a lot today. Right? I always tell you know,

00:22:33--> 00:23:07

people, I always tell the students, one extreme breeds the other. So either we have this complete lack of seriousness, we're just we're constantly in tourist mode, we're taking pictures of everything and Snapchatting everything in sight. Okay? Or there's almost like this attitude of like, over seriousness, that's not practical. You can't live life like that, like, aren't you ever gonna, like enjoy yourself, but there is a middle ground, there's times and places where you enjoy yourself, the profits a lot of the time what sometimes on these journeys pass through valleys and gardens, and he used to stop and drink the water and look at the trees and listen to the birds

00:23:07--> 00:23:38

chirping in the trees. And, you know, he used to enjoy the place. And he said, Look how beautiful displaces there were moments like that. There were moments where they were traveling in the profits, a lot of the time they would be up on a mountain or a hill, and the processor would stop and he would kind of, you know, appreciate the scene. And you say, look how beautiful the creation of a light is. Right? So there were moments like that. But there have to also be moments where we have a level of seriousness. And we grasp and we understand kind of where we are and what we're doing there. Right. And so this is that balance of profits, a lot of him was teaching them and also

00:23:38--> 00:24:18

teaching us. And so after this happened, obviously the process and told them don't go sightseeing over there but be mindful and fearful. And the profits a lot even told them engaging to make Vicar of Allah ask Allah for forgiveness, ask Allah to protect us from his punishment. And the prophets of some himself kind of covered his face with this show, and continue to make the dua for Allah to forgive them and protect them. And he told them do not consume any of this water. And he said, let's go let's move past here. Let's not spend a lot of time here. And so they moved on past there and they moved on. When they reach a little bit further, they reach a little bit further, obviously the

00:24:18--> 00:24:37

compact it was time for prayer, so they needed to stop and make will do and pray. And also everyone who was traveling was thirsty and tired. So the profits, a lot of them said don't worry, we will take care of our needs, will provide something Allah will make some provision for us. And so the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:24:39--> 00:25:00

He stopped at a particular place. And when they stopped there, there was a there was like a small spring. There was a small spring that was there. But the narration says that the spring was so small and so weak. There was like just a little bit of water that was bubbling out of it. It wasn't like a gushing spring, where like a whole stream was coming.

00:25:00--> 00:25:33

out from it. Okay, it was just like this little tiny spring and there was almost like water bubbling out of it. And the narration says it almost looks like an egg. So imagine like barely any water pressure where the water is just kind of bubbling out. It looked like an egg. Okay, that's how little water it was. And when the prophets a lot when they came in, they told the processor, he said, Is there any water in the area? They said, there's a small little spring, barely any water is coming out from it. The profits a lot he sent him said, Mr. Malik has narrated the story, that the profits, a lot of them said, Well, don't go to the water until I until I get there. Let me go to

00:25:33--> 00:26:03

that water first. When you reach there to the water, the narration actually says a couple of guys went ahead and tried to like use the water. And when the process showed up, he said, Did you guys use the water? They said, Yeah, the profitsystem said, Didn't I tell you not to use the water? They said Yeah. They said, Then why did you use the water? They said, Oh, I'm sorry. And then that is a lesson as well, that there's always people that don't listen to what you tell them to do, right. But nevertheless, the profits are lovely. Some went to the water and the narration says he scooped up the water in his own hands. He made to offer Buttercup for blessing. He said Bismillah he washed his

00:26:03--> 00:26:39

face and he washed his hands in the water. And he asked Allah subhanaw taala for blessing. And the Sahaba say that as soon as the prophets a lot of them did that the water started gushing forth, creating like an entire pool of water. And then the pot and the all the companions and the Sahaba were able to bring their water sacks and fill it up and containers with water and everyone made will do and everyone drank water and everyone was able to, you know, make their food and cook their food and, you know, make their little drinks and do all of that. And it was enough water for everyone. This one the great miracles of the prophets a lot he sent them. So this happened at that particular

00:26:39--> 00:26:45

time. There's another couple of stories that are mentioned here that transpired at this particular place.

00:26:46--> 00:27:13

The prophets, a lot of them when they were passing by the place of the mood displace the ruins of the mood. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them the story, he pointed out the sights to them. He said this is a place in the mountain where the camel came out from this is a water that they were told the camel will drink one day and you will drink one day. This is that water right there. And not only that, but the prophets a lot of them told them the story that when that blast occurred, that killed all of them.

00:27:14--> 00:27:58

One of them was not there. One of them was had actually traveled all the way down to Makati to visit the Kaaba. And he was in the huddle. He was in the safe, sacred sanctuary of the heart of the Kaaba. So when that blast happen, you know he was away. And secondly, he was within the huddle, the sacred place, but he was amongst the same people. He was a criminal person. And then the prophets, a lot of them told them that as soon as he left the harem, as soon as he exited the sacred area, he basically felt that on the spot. The punishment of Allah subhanaw taala got him there as well. Another very interesting thing that happened there was that when they they were they moved away a little bit far

00:27:58--> 00:28:38

from that where they found the spring and of course, that's where the water was, and they use the water. But then they spent the night there. The prophets, a lot of them told them that look, this is this is you know, this is not a really nice place. And secondly, even the people of the mood the reason why Allah had given them the gift of being able to carve out homes within the mountains was because of the fact that living there was so difficult. It was mountainous, it was Rocky, strong winds used to blow through there. So the prophets, a lot of them had told them. Listen, everyone tried to stay together. No one go out at night. And if you ultimately have to go out at night, which

00:28:38--> 00:29:12

means if you have to use the restroom, you have to go out at night, then make sure that you do not go along go in pairs. Okay. Two different individuals ended up kind of wandering off at night one needed to go use the restroom, but he decided to go on his own and the other one just decided to go sightseeing at night just to take a walk at night. So he went out on his own. And it's very interesting not listening to the advice of the prophets a lot is him not doing what he tells you to do. When he tells you something very directly to do the one who went out to use the restroom. While he was using the restroom. He fell down because of the wind he fell down and he ended up injuring

00:29:12--> 00:29:36

himself really badly. He somehow limp back to the camp and when the process of saw him he goes This is why I told you not to go out on your own. But then the profits a lot. He said um, you know, kind of as we know from the stories of the process alone, the profits a lot of him made to offer him in the man was cured. The second individual who kind of went sightseeing went for a walk right in, he climbed up on one of the nearby hills, the mountains

00:29:37--> 00:29:47

and a strong wind blew there and it knocked him off the mountain. But he didn't fall completely off a cliff. It just kind of knocked him off the side of the mountain. And he kind of rolled down and he ended up getting injured.

00:29:48--> 00:29:52

And by the time he got up and was able to make it back to the camp, the army had moved on.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

The army had moved on. They just assumed that he wandered off and maybe he went missing or he died or whatever it was

00:30:00--> 00:30:33

So the army had moved on. And he somehow slowly limped his way back to Medina. He got to Medina after the prophets a lot of the some of the Muslim army had returned back to Medina. And when he got to Medina, the prophets, a lot of them said, What are you doing? What happened? Where were you What happened to you? And he told the story. And again, the prophets allowed him just simply told him, this is why I told you what I told you. And this is what I what happens when you don't listen to what you're told. Right? So a couple of very interesting stories, and something very powerful the prophets a lot, he sort of said, and I want everyone to pay a lot of attention to this. Some some

00:30:33--> 00:31:11

very profound words, prophetic words, when some of the Sahaba insisted that we want to go we want to go inside, we want to look, we want to take a tour. It's like us today. Like I just want to go take a couple of pictures, right? The prophets, a lot of them told them that he first of all told belaga the Allahu taala and who that make the call for prayer. So Beloved, made the call for prayer solid to Jamie Arden. So everyone, the Sahaba were the kind of people that if you made the call for prayer, everybody would immediately come together, so everyone got together. Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that Mother toluna, Allah caminhada Allahu Allah him. Why do you want to go

00:31:11--> 00:31:17

visit the home of these people upon whom God's wrath descended? Why would you want to do that?

00:31:18--> 00:31:21

So one person spoke up and he said, Now gentlemen, who mia rasulillah

00:31:22--> 00:31:32

we're we're just really fascinated by this. We're fascinated. We're intrigued. We're interested. We're curious. So profits a lot a subset of

00:31:34--> 00:31:46

Delica. Would you like me to tell you about something that's even more like bizarre and strange and fascinating. Then going and seeing their home? Roger lumen and fusi community Oh, combi Makana, tabela, como makua.

00:31:48--> 00:31:49

that

00:31:50--> 00:32:24

a person from amongst you, being given knowledge by God, to be able to tell you what happened before you and what's going to happen after you. He's talking about himself, like you have a messenger amongst you, you have a prophet amongst you, telling you what happened before and what will happen afterwards. First of all, we're sad to do so catch yourself. And be be you know, be sensible, be sensible, for in Allah, Allah Yaga, who be either become Shia, God does not want to punish you will say it

00:32:25--> 00:32:26

unforeseen.

00:32:27--> 00:33:16

Because there will come people later on who will just be so heedless, and so mindful, mindless, so he listened mindless, that they will not be able to determine the punishment of a lot from them. Don't be like those people. Be mindful, be sensible, be mindful, be sensible, and recognize each place in each situation. And Don't be foolish like this. Don't act like a bunch of tourists. So this was basically this place that they saw here. And then of course, as I mentioned before, that they passed on from here, and they proceeded on forward towards the place of the book. Now the second thing that I wanted to talk about here today, and we'll conclude with this inshallah, they arrive at

00:33:16--> 00:33:51

the place of the book. So this spot where the ruins of the mood are, and actually that places there even till today, in Arabia, it's called medallion solid. And today, the locals they refer to it as medallion solea. People don't live there. People don't even live around, there's just this kind of place in the middle of nowhere. But if you're ever in that region, or in that area, kind of passing through, you can actually you can pass through there and you can see it, right and again, it's important when you do pass by and you kind of see it. It's important to observe the etiquette taught to us by the prophets, allow them, be mindful, be aware, ask Allah for forgiveness, casilla for

00:33:51--> 00:34:29

protection, and move right on class, the place. Nevertheless, that place is not too far from the city of Dubuque, they arrive in the place of the book. Now, when they arrived at the place of the book, and they kept their the profits. A lot of them said, this is where we will be camping, awaiting the arrival of the army, and then we'll see what happens. We'll see what transpires the profits, a lot of them delivered a sermon. He gave a hook, but he delivered a sermon at this place, and two very powerful sermon, the prophet system gave and I'd like to share that sermon here. The Sahaba, saying that the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he sat down, of course, this is towards the end

00:34:29--> 00:35:00

of the life of the Prophet. Normally a hook bearer sermon is given standing up, and the Friday hook but the process would give standing up, but he had a stick that eventually used to kind of lean on because he was 62 years old. He was a lot older now. So he used to kind of have this stick this I saw, and he would kind of hold it and lean on it when he would give the sermon for the Friday prayer. But normally now when he would address the people, he used to stand up and address them, but because he was elderly now he would sit down and kind of speak to the people. So the Sahaba say we were traveling to his pulpit. His member is posted

00:35:00--> 00:35:33

was not there. So he sat down and leaned against the tree. And we all gathered around him there all 30,000 we all gathered around him, and the profits allowed to some addressed everyone. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, a lot of biru come behind in nassima shadiness, let me tell you about the best of people, and the worst of humanity. The best of humanity, the best of people and the worst of people the worst of humanity. In them in hate and nasty radula amela fees have been in a lava hurry for a CE, O Allah.

00:35:35--> 00:36:22

O Allah de Mayo he had to mow to the best of people is the one who continues to strive in the path of God who continues to try to do their best to live a life that is pleasing to Allah, whether that'd be on the back of a horse, which means in battle, or whether that'd be on the back of a camel, which means in kind of moving about and taking care of your business. Oh, Allah Kadima here or on one's feet, which means in your daily lives, living in your town, living in your home, okay? However it may be whether you are in battle, whether you're working, whether you're at home, you always try to live a life that is mindful of God and always trying to live life that is pleasing to

00:36:22--> 00:36:39

Allah, do your best to be the best that you can every single day, until death finally comes, that is the best person. You see how he simplified it. You see how he simplified the equation? A lot of times we make spirituality such a complicated prospect.

00:36:40--> 00:37:17

We make it so complex, we make it so complicated, that it sounds like something so existential, so metaphysical and philosophical. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with it. I don't know if I don't even understand what the conversation is about. I'm not smart enough to figure it out. I'm not good enough to do it. But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, No, it's just being the best that you can be. Being honest, being good being sincere in your everyday life. That's, that's called being a good person. That's the best person. Then the he said, we're in The Manchurian assay, the worst kind of person radula and 5g, Ron Jerry

00:37:18--> 00:37:27

Somebody who is very blatant in how they commit sin. All right, very blunt and very blatant, like somebody who doesn't care what Allah wants him to do, and just publicly act out in a way that is defined to God in a way that is defined to Allah and just does it blatantly. disrespectfully. That is the worst kind of person and then he said, yaka, okitama lucky.
