Okay, Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah, who Allah Allah He will Sufi, admiring chala continuing with our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a siracha number we are the prophetic biography
we have been talking about over the last few sessions, one of the major events from the life of the prophets a lot they said, I'm known as it has worked to, to book, the exposition of the book, we talked about a few different stages of this particular event from the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the prepper, why it happened, the preparation for it, the journey on the way there, what transpired once they arrived there. And what we're going to be talking about today is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the believers, the 30,000 Muslims that were there with him their departure from the book, because if you recall, in the previous session, we talked about how the
emissary from the Roman Emperor had come had this conversation with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And one of the big takeaways from that particular conversation was the fact that there is not going to be any army coming from the Roman Empire, and there's not going to be any type of fighting that's going to happen at this particular juncture here at this place.
So as Urbanus Hawk, Allahu taala, and many of the other scholars of Tafseer. They mentioned that after about 20 days of being there at the book, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the Muslims to pack up their stuff, and they were going to be heading back to the city of Medina.
There's a particular story that's told at this particular time in his heart, and even Kathy had many other scholars, they mentioned it, I can't really recall if I went over it or not. But very briefly, it talks about how when they were journeying back towards the city of Medina, they passed by a place and when they pass by that place, there was we Yes, now I recall, on the way to double from Medina, we talked about how there was some water and near the ruins of the mood. And the profits, a lot of them told the believers do not take from this water. When they went further up, there was a small little spring that was just bubbling right at the surface, and how
the profits a lot of a sudden went there. And then after saying Bismillah and making to offer Baraka and blessing, you washed his hands in that water, how it started gushing forth, the same exact thing transpired on the way back to the city of Medina as well, where they started going and they were looking for some water so they could stop, they can make will do they could pray. They could kind of relieve themselves, you know, get a drink of water, whatever needed to be done.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent somebody ahead, and they went into one of the valleys while the Alamo shock and they found that there was a little bit of a spring there but it wasn't enough for an army of 30,000 people to use the profits a lot. He said I'm told them he said Okay, everybody started heading that way. But he said nobody use the water until I get there until I arrived there.
When they ended up getting their the profits a lot he sent them as men sivanna Allah had an MA who did anybody use the water before I got here. So the profits a lot the sun was informed that a couple of people did they were kind of in a hurry, and they wanted to get ahead of the rest of the group. And they went ahead and they use the water they're
the profits a lot of a sudden was very upset with them. He was very angry with them. He said you should listen to me when I give you instructions. But nevertheless a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he went there and the narration mentions for gallega superficie de Masha Allah Enya Suba through manava, who be hiromasa who ba, ba Ba, he was the RB Ma sha Allah. Allah from hasakah minalima e. Ma inilah, who hasten cases solaric for surely Manasa suppo Hydra Domino, it says that the prophets Allah is and went there and he scooped up a little bit of a little bit of the water in his hands, and he took in his hands and then he started spraying the water back onto where the
spring was bubbling from and he was making the water
He was asking a lot for Baraka and blessing.
And no sooner did the prophets a lot of them do that. But then Sahaba say, there was like a roaring sound, and water just came gushing out of the ground out of the earth and just started shooting forth. And that eventually provided enough water for all the Muslims and all the believers to be able to go there, drink water from there, and then relieve any of the other needs that they have psychologically. So
the prophets, a lot of them actually the reason why I wanted to mention this is very profound. It obviously demonstrates and highlights one of the miracles of the profits a lot he said them, but it also the profits allowed him at that time he said that in bottom on Omen Buckley I'm income layers, Miranda behalf Illa de wahoo, AXA buma been a Yamaha alpha, who he said that whoever lives long enough, will eventually one day hear about the fact that this will be the most fertile valley in this region. And the narrator mentions the fact that no doubt about that fact, after the prophets a lot recently passed away, when people would pass through their death valley had become very famous
as being an oasis in that entire region. And that was the effect of the Baraka and the blessing of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, and the two are the prophets. A lot of these are made at that particular place.
There's another very profound lesson that is learned here at this particular instance. And that is the importance of patience. That is the importance of patience. And this was like a physical manifestation of something Allah tells us in the Quran, manga Rasulullah Hakata. Allah, Allah, Rasool, my Atacama rasuluh, vamana, harcombe and movento. God continuously in the Quran repeatedly tells us obey the messenger listen to the messenger do with the messenger tells you do not disobeyed the messenger. And this is quite literally a physical manifestation of that, that the prophets, a lot of them told them wait till I arrive. And when a couple of people went in a rush, thinking that
they were going to beat the system, they were going to gain the system and get there before everybody and be able to take advantage of that they deprived themselves of that blessing. And the profits, a lot of them reprimanded them. And that's a stark reminder to us that a lot of times doing things, the way the profits a lot even taught us to do things might take a little bit longer, it might be a little bit more tedious, it might take a little bit more time. But it's completely worth it every single time because of this intangible idea that we believe in that Allah tells us about in the Quran. And that is the idea the concept of Baraka blessing, which we normally translate as
blessing. But it's something that's intangible to us. But it's not something that can be measured through a calculator or through a measuring stick. Right? There's no there's no way to physically measure Buttercup and something. But it is something that Allah subhanaw taala grants the Baraka, Lady via the hymnbook, Fatah, barakallahu, Arsenal, polyalkylene. And Baraka only comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And a lot of times you see two people who might have the same exact thing, your capacity or money or whatever it is the same amount of time, but it is there's such a disparity between what both of them are able to achieve through that
and the differentiating factors, but one has better gone inside and the other does not.
And a very fascinating definition of Baraka that one of our teachers told us about was that Baraka is not having more Baraka is the ability to do more with less, it is the ability to do more with less you actually realize through Baraka that a lot less suffices. And so this is a very important lesson about the importance and the significance of Baraka and Baraka is only found that blessing is only acquired by obedience to Allah and obedience to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, going forward, now on the way back from Dubuque, there's two more notable stories, and then there's a very profound event that occurs once they arrived back in the city of Medina, that
I'd like to try to talk about today inshallah, and it depends on time, we'll see what we can do, at the very least talking about the journey home. So while they were heading back home, I've done a bit over the Allahu taala. Anu tells a very remarkable story. He says that come to mean jiofi layli Well, Anima rasulillah his philosophy has led to book Abdullah and Mr. Rudra, the Allahu taala. And who is one of the senior companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam senior meaning that not only just an age, he actually was not that old, because he was a teenager when he accepted Islam, but senior in the sense of he was very tenured. He had been by the side of the prophets a lot since the
days of Mecca, and he was very close with the prophets a lot he said them and Abdullah bin Masuda the Allahu taala I knew eventually became very distinguished by the fact he was known as sahiwal a c word where he was also known as sahiwal rusada. So he will not so he will see wack here, all these nicknames, and what the
These nicknames mean as we saw,
excuse me, so odd refers to water. That's what they used to call water especially at nighttime. Alright, so he was known as the person who arranges the water for the profits a lot he sent him he was known as we saw that the person who arranges a seat for the profits are the sum in the old age of the profits a lot a sell them, obviously to try to get him make him a little bit more comfortable. And because what's really remarkable is the older the profits a lot SLM gods, he did not relent in the least bit in the amount of what he used to do. He was he worked just as hard in the 60s as he did in his 40s trying to take care of people serve the people so you wouldn't slow
down even the least bit, but they could notice it took him a little bit longer to get up. And it took them a little bit longer to sit down. And you know, they they started to notice these things that he's getting older. So Abdullah bin Massoud used to carry a pillow with him all the time everywhere. And whenever the profits, a lot of them would sit down, he would always go and he would take the pillow and you would put it behind the profits a lot. So he could be a little bit more comfortable. He was also known as La he would not, he used to carry the shoes of the profits a lot he sent him. So when he would enter the masjid or when he would stop to pray he would grab the shoes
of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says just to make sure that he could keep track of them. He was also known as sahiwal see wack, he would keep track of the miswak the toothbrush of the prophets a lot of the time because the prophets a lot of them used to clean, clean his mouth. So frequently. hygiene was very important to the prophets a lot. He said I'm so he used to carry around the sidewalk, the miswak of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he was somebody who is always with the prophets, a lot of them so he tells the story. He says while we were there for the battle, the expedition rather of the book, I was on that journey. And the prophets, a lot of them woke up in
the middle of the nights. And when he woke up in the middle of the night to go and pray is 200 prayer, his night prayers. I was already awake, I had arranged his water I had arranged to see walk, I had everything ready to go. But when the profits a lot of them woke up, he says that I we slipped off in the distance. And we saw that there was a fire in the
you know, on the far end of the encampment, obviously 30,000 Muslims camped out somewhere. So all the way on the other edge of the camp, there was like a fire that was burning, not like a fire as in like a fire broke out. But somebody had a fire lit. You know, kind of like at nighttime. If you you know,
in your home, if a light is on in one of the rooms at night, you can kind of spot it. I wonder why the lights on. So it's like the light was left on somewhere in the distance. And so he said we went over there. And what we found was that there was a Sahabi, who was known by the name of Bill badger, they will be jogging. We'll be jogging. That was what he was known as that's what we called him. What does that mean? this hobby has even he shall mentioned he had become Muslim not too long ago, when he became Muslim, his tribe kicked him out.
He was he was disowned by his family. He was disowned by his tribe. And they ousted him, they kicked him out. They said no more room for you here. If you want to be Muslim, get out. And they kicked him out. And he said, Okay, let me get myself and they said no, you can't even get your stuff leave now. So you know how a lot of times they say that I left with the shirt on my back. He literally left with the shirt on his back. And what he had on at that time was he had one big piece of cloth. And so eventually what he did was he cut this cloth in half, it was a big shawl like a huge blanket. He cut it in half and used to wear half of it around his waist like these are you know when people go
for a cut on how they tie the cloth around the bottom, so used to wear like that as an ease out or a loogie if somebody knows the word, alright, and used to use the other half of it around his shoulders as kind of like a shawl. And that's what he wore. From that point on forward. He only owned two pieces of cloth. This man gave up everything he had for his Islam. He became Muslim and they disowned him and they kicked him out. And all he left with was two pieces of cloth. One was a lower garment one was an upper garment and when it came to the profits, a lot of em in this particular state and the profits or any told the profits a lot of his story, the profits a lot of
these endearingly and admirably gave him the nickname will be jetting. You are the man of two cloths. You are the man of two cloths. And it was like an admirable nickname. to praise him that look at what this man sacrificed this man sacrificed everything he owned, to be Muslim.
So he was very beloved to the prophets, Allah, Allah because of the sacrifice that he had made. And Abdullah bin Masuda the Allahu taala and who says that when we reached the other side of the army where the light was on the fire was burning the campfire. We found that there'll be just
They had passed away.
He passed away in asleep.
And he says that they the prophets, a lot of them commanded them to dig a grave for him.
And once they did, they dug the grave for him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went down into the grave, in Abu Bakar in honor of the Allahu taala and Houma. They took his body they attracted him in the same two cloths that he wore his that whole time. And they the prophets, a lot of them the way that when you bury someone, it takes a couple of people to bring the body to the edge of the grave, and somebody has to get down inside of the grave and receive the body and pull it down. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was so elderly at this time, he's 62 years old. But he said no, I will get down in the grave. And he got down inside of the grave and he said, hand me the body. And
I will record it no matter what the Allahu taala and Omar handled the process of the body and he he received him in his own arms. And then the prophets a lot of them laid him down inside of the grave and made to offer him
and the prophets a lot of them at that time. He said the words Allahumma inni say turabian and who further
along last night when I went to sleep I was happy with him. I was pleased with him. So like you'll be pleased with him as well. And I'm delivering Masuda the Allahu taala and who he said
yeah, later, Nico to Sahib Malhotra that I wish I could have been that man who is buried by the hands of the profits a lot determine the profit made to offer him. And that's the law to be pleased with him. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us all to pass away in a state of pleasure with a loss of autonomy.
You have this example on one side of the simple man who had nothing but the two pieces of cloth that he wore. And he left this world. And people would have said about him that he was disowned. And he didn't have a family. He didn't have a tribe and he didn't have a home. And he didn't have anything and anyone. But he left this world successful.
But you on the same journey back you have the opposite example. And that's what I'm going to talk about right now. Many of the scholars of Sierra have mentioned that automotive news ubaidah the Allahu taala. And when he narrates this, that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left the place of the move to go to Medina.
When the news reached back in Medina, that the prophets, a lot of them has left the book and he's on his way back home, he's on his way back to Medina.
A group of them want to clean the hypocrites. Now, this is something we're going to talk about more.
You know, we're going to talk about very specifically. So there's something that we're going to talk about very specifically, and we're going to focus on in the next session that we have in Sharla.
Less taboo, and I talked about this before, when we started off the conversation about the book in federal refund within Ireland, it was mandatory to go for to boot if you were physically if you were male, who is physically able physically capable, and you could afford your provisions for the journey. It was mandatory, you had to go, you had to go only those people could stay behind women and children, the elderly, somebody who physically could not go somebody who did not have a ride and provisions and or the profits, a lot of them told you to stay like I live in a beat on him. Who even then I live in a beat on it felt so bad. We talked about this, that he came out of Medina crying.
Why do you leave me behind? Are you not? Are you not happy with me on messenger alone? Why do you leave me behind? And he said no, I leave you behind because I trust you and I need somebody to watch Medina for me.
This is Medina. This is the mustard of the Prophet, the city of the Prophet, the family of the Prophet is here. I need you hear. And so those were the only people allowed to stay behind. And many of the hypocrites someone afiya hoon, who, you know, these were people who acted like Muslims stayed in the Muslim community because it was advantageous. They saw that the Muslim community was growing. And so they wanted to be along for the ride. But they were constantly working behind the back of the profits, a lot of them to try to take him down. And they had been caught on many occasion. And like we'll see here as well. So far up to this particular point, whenever they were caught, whenever they
got busted, you know, and their their their reality became exposed. There were some questions that the companions had that why do we not take more drastic measures against them? And every single time the prophets a lot of them said no, because then people will say Mohammed kills his own people.
Mohammed persecutes his own people Will I ever be right? And so that's why I don't do that. We have to tolerate them. This is a necessary evil. This is a test for all of us, how we conduct ourselves how we handle ourselves. Okay? And to think about
The type of patience and the type of
eemaan, the type of faith, the type of conviction, certainty
that you need, in order to see your enemy smiling in your face every single day knowing that the first opportunity this guy gets he'll stab me in the back. But to still have that much patience and have that much faith and trust in Allah subhanaw taala. God has a plan.
It's really remarkable. So this group of one African who should have come on to book because of they qualified to come but they obviously didn't come because they're hypocrites. What they did was when they heard they were keeping, they had some scouts, keeping an eye on the route back to Medina. And they said notify us when the prophets a lot of them is like halfway back to Medina to notify us. So when the prophets a lot of the sentiment, the Muslims were about halfway back, and the news reached them that he's about halfway back, they said, Okay, there was about some some narrations mentioned that there were 14 of them. Some of them say that there were about 12 of them. So 14 seems to be the
more authentic narration these 14 guys what they did was, they left Medina, they arrived there were the army, the Muslim army and the prophets. A lot of them were staying near a valley a mountain paths. They got there at night, and in the middle of the night, you know, close to fudger time, they quietly came, and they just kind of blended in and joined into the army.
Like, oh, I've been here the whole time. There's 30,000 people. I didn't see you. Well, you know, you probably missed me. I've been here the whole time. These are liars. Right? They're hypocrites. And so, they do that. And, and many other companions named narrate this incidence. Then in the morning time, when they started departing, they continued on with their journey and they started walking. The prophets Allah vision was walking, and I might have been the acid or the Allahu taala on Houma. When the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim was kind of walking ahead of the process. And because he was responsible for making sure the animal of the prophets of Salaam was properly going
in the right direction. Another companion by the name of who they are, they've had to ngulia man, radi Allahu taala and who he was holding the rope of the camel of the prophets, a lot of them just making sure the animal would not, you know, would not act out or anything like that. And so they were going to profits a lot of him kind of called them near. So first of all, they were going into profits, a lot of them looked really upset. He looked really upset. And they thought that they got lucky. Jelani knew the profits a lot so well by this point. When he looked up at the face of the prophets, Allah Litem and he saw how upset he looked. He said, that are after fee watching.
I recognize that the process was upset about something.
So I asked him Is everything okay on messenger of Allah. So the prophets, Allah, someone called me and Amar,
in one narration says only who they found. And even Kathy says that the more authentic narration is that it was only her they found when they first looked at the face of the process. I mean, he said, Is everything okay? He said, Come here Come closer to me. And then the prophets, a lot of them started writing a little bit quicker. And he said, keep up with me right up forward with me. And he kind of moved away from the pack. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam asked him, hello, after How will I
look back? Do you notice some people?
And he said that I noticed, I looked back and I kept looking back as the processors have asked me a question. Do you notice something fishy? And I looked at I immediately didn't see anything. So I started getting nervous. Am I supposed to see something? So I kept looking, kept looking, kept looking until I finally spotted some of them because they were they were so cliquish, that they were all kind of moving together inside of the crowd, and I saw them
and the prophet and then I mentioned to the prophets a lot he said that, are you talking about those people? And the prophets? A lot of them said yes, I'm talking about those people.
And he said that, who they are, or the Lakota in the prophet SAW some told him he said that these people did not come with us. They snuck in last night, they blend it into the group. And now they're coming back with us acting as if they've been with us the whole time. And they're there they're taking advantage. And they're they're being dishonest and they're lying. These are the hypocrites. And who the pharaoh the Allahu taala and who he says very naively, I asked the prophets a lot he sent me a Rasul Allah for that that would be utterly him. Why don't you tell somebody to take them out.
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Accra, who? And yet the Hadith and so under Mohammedan, yocto, as haba who he says, I don't want people to be able to say that Mohammed persecutes his own people, he kills his own people. And so no
They've heard the language and who goes on to say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned the names of all 14. He mentioned to me the names of all 14 Who were these 14 people. so and so and so and so and so and so and so and so. And after he was done, he then basically swore me to secrecy. He swore me to secrecy, and he says, I'm talking to you, but don't tell anyone else.
And because of this, it mentions implica theater from Allahu taala he mentions that honorable hottub radi Allahu taala and who he one time asked what they thought of the Allahu Allahu Aksum to Allah Kabila. He and a man whom an amine whom he said is I asked you in the name of God, am I amongst that list of people? And he said, law? law? No, I'll tell you that. No, your name was not in that list. Well, I
hadn't, but I will never even answer that question ever again. So don't ask me again. Had Jani hautala cuando la la akuna la akuna move she and several Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so that I am not guilty of exposing the secret of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So this is something else that transpired on the way back from Tuborg to the city of Medina that where we saw somebody very very admirable and someone really amazing who the profits a lot he's made a lot of do it for any prayed for. At the same time. We also see the opposite example of these hypocrites, who tried to take advantage of the kindness of the prophets a lot of the time and tried to get credit for
something they did not do. And a lot of talks about them and similar to Toba Jani una bella Hema Paolo welaka calu kennametal gouffre Waka vocaroo bada Islamia moi movie Mamma mia nalu
Wareham movie Mamma mia nalu they tried to take credit for something that they did not do a movie melamine Alou and so Allah subhanaw taala exposes them in the Quran that these people are a bunch of liars.
not only that, but they forgot the Allahu taala and who actually mentions that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went on to say that Allah mermie him be do be do obey Allah that Allah put them into baileigh
the processor made against them and the processor did not do this very lightly. He did not do this very frequently. A lot of madami him did do baileigh Oh a lot put them into baileigh so he says he says I asked jasola might do baileigh what is the baler and he said she have a minute in Jaco alania niyati I'll be adding phallic that this is for it is a flame from the fire of hell that will come upon their hearts and will destroy them. That basically the prophets a lot of them said that these people are doomed to hell. And in fact, the Prophet sallahu wa Hadith in Sahih Muslim he says, feed us hobby if not I shall amen African lion Hoon agenda Tata Angel Jamila face Amelia, that there are
12 people in this group this narration mentioned 12 people, there are 12 people in this group that they will not enter Paradise until or unless a camel can pass through the hole of a needle, where you thread the needle. Unless and until a camel is able to pass through that it's an expression in Arabic, meaning these people will never enter Paradise. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us from such a fate.
Now the last thing that I'll talk about here today
is once the profits a lot ism arrives back in Medina, he was faced with another crisis. As soon as he arrived back in Medina, like he had not even gotten back into Medina. He was still on the outskirts of Medina. And he was faced with a crisis. What was this crisis? So tobuy talks about at the end of sort of teutoburg talks about it, and I'll share the IOP in just a moment after I tell you what exactly transpired. When the prophets Allah arrived near the city of Medina
and he was on the outskirts of Medina in the area of Cuba. Those who have been 400 Amara they visit the city Medina they're familiar with the masjid of Baba, the masjid of Baba, according to the opinion of many scholars is it can be called the fourth most sacred site in in Islam.
It is the fourth most sacred site in Islam. Why? what's meant by sacred what sacred means is that visiting there is a ritual act of worship. There's a specific precise reward for visiting that place. Like the reward for coming to the machine. It applies to every single question that if you go and you're praying the body the body says your prayer reward of your prayers multiply 25 times that's for every single machine. But when it comes to a specific mustard, we're prayer there has a special reward. We know of the
The Big Three the top three. Right You have a harem. Right al carrabba. All right. Majid al Haram in Makkah. All right that the prayer there is multiply the reward is multiplied 100,000 times in one narration. Then you have a mosquito number we have Sharif, the Prophet's mosque in the city of Medina, were a reward of the prayers multiplied 50,000 times as one nation says, and then you have Masood Azhar, Masood Azhar. Okay, in Jerusalem, were the prophets, a lot of them tells us that the reward of every single prayer is multiplied 1000 times. Okay? And then the fourth place that you have is a message of Koba, where the prophets a lot of them said, Whoever makes will do from their
home, and then goes to my sickle bar and offers a prayer in my sickle bar, they get the reward of having performed in ombre,
you get the reward of having performed an ombre, the special reward for it. So that's the machine of Koba, and that's relevant to this incident. So when the Prophet Solomon was near the area of Baba,
he got some news, he got news that there was a new mustard that had been constructed that had been built near the masjid of Koba in the same area.
And that's peculiar. Why? Because the Messenger of God, Mohammed or salicylate ism is alive. What that means is that a machine does not get built without his approval. And he was gone for a couple of months, he comes back and there's randomly a new machine. Right. So where did this come from? First of all, there's no permission. Secondly, there were some fishy circumstances it was very close to the module of cobalt, there was no need for a mustard there. That's number two. Okay. And then number three, the people that were involved with the constructing of the masjid, were very suspect. They were troublesome people in the community. And nobody else could say conclusively that they were
hypocrites, but the prophets, a lot of them can say, and he did confirm that these are hypocrites. And fourthly, and finally, there was already very suspicious circumstances. So I needed the Allahu taala, who came to visit the prophets, a lot of them and informed him that this Majid has come up here. I have not said anything. No one has done anything. We were waiting for you to get back. But we wanted to let you know that there seems to be something wrong here. But we of course, we're waiting for you to tell us what to do.
they also sent a delegation to the profits, a lot of them saying, Oh, we were waiting for you to get back, you know, but while you were on your way back, we thought we'd go ahead and get a head start on the project. So we put this machine together. So you know, the profit cells on every single Saturday used to go and pray and visit Koba used to walk from Medina and go pray with Baba. So he said, We would also like for you to come and pray in our mosque, our new machine. And at that time, Allah subhanaw taala revealed the verses of the Quran. And those are the verses at the end of Soto Toba verses number 107 through
110 107 through 110. When levena, Tadamasa done the rod, that these people who have constructed a mosque they have done so to cause harm and detriment to the Muslim community will confirm that this these people are actually disbelievers. They're hypocrites. They don't really believe what the free convenient meaning and they've done this to divide the community. That's why it's so conspicuously close to the mustard of Cobra. What inside then lemon Hara Bella Rasulullah, hoomin oven. And not only that, but they built this machine to serve as a headquarters for the people who previously have declared war on a line. This messenger Salafi sent him, the enemies of Islam, there specifically was
a man. At the time of the prophets, a lot of them by the name of Abu Muhammad arrived,
arrived he was a Christian monk, but he had decided to take a stance against the profits a lot and fight against the profits. Allegedly, he was actually one of the key people who after the Battle of bud, he went to Medina, he went back to Makkah, and he campaigned and petitioned over there literally campaigned over there, you need to raise an army and come back and attack Medina and I'll support you. And so he was one of the architects of
the Battle of the hood. So he was a declared open enemy of the prophets a lot he sent him and he used to be called double I'm era him. The prophets of some called him Abu Ahmed unfasten.
He used to be called Mohammed the monk. The prophets a lot he said I'm the devout he the process of named him Abu Ahmed the sinful, the treacherous Alright, so he had not given up his mission against the prophets a lot. So this mosque was a place where he used to come in the middle of the night and meet with the hypocrites to plot and plan against the professor. So God exposed all of that in the Quran, where he said what you saw the Lehman horrible. la hora Sula, who mean
They actually found that in Urbana, Illinois, they will swear that they had the best of intentions established this space. Well luckily I shadow in the home locker room but God testifies that there are a bunch of liars. Lots of comfy Abba. Allah forbade the prophets, a lot of them. Don't you ever dare go and pray in that mosque, lemma Shibu, Salah, choco amin, a Willie, Yeoman Haku and taco Murphy, a mosque a place of worship that was established for the based on the consciousness of Allah, with a lot in mind from the very first day is a lot more deserving for you to go and pray there, meaning the masjid of Baba, you go and pray them as of about once a week, every week and you
need to continue to do so. Fie, the genuine you hibbeler takaharu because there are people in that community in that Masjid, who wants to purify themselves while you're helping them about healing. Allah loves people who purified themselves from an OC sabudana who from an assessable Nana, who Allah taco Amina luggie What did one in hydron assessible Nana who Alicia Judith in Hardin, Fernando de finetti, Johanna and Allah asked the simple question, what's a better Foundation, a foundation based on the pleasure of Allah and God consciousness, or a foundation that is built on the anger and the wrath and the punishment of God in the firewall? Which one is better? He asked that very obvious
question. Well, luckily, I mean, Allah does not guide oppressive people. lag is Allah banyana Hola, de bajo de Botton alumium illa and Takata aku boom Allahu Allah Hakeem that these people that have built this foundation, on the foundation of doubt, this will continue to create more and more and more doubt within their hearts, until it eventually destroys them. And God is all knowing and all wise. And so when these verses came down upon the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent a few Sahaba there, to go there and to tear that much to down and burn it to the ground. And we shouldn't even say much to that place to burn it down and tear it down and destroy it. Because it was revealed by Allah subhanaw taala. And that's exactly what was done. And this, there's a very profound lesson here. That there's two things I mentioned here, very briefly, but very important. Number one, this is why this is a very scary reminder in the Quran, that we always have to think about what are the foundations of our communities?
What are the you know, and something else that some of the books of Hadith and Sira mentioned, that structure that they had built was even nicer, like in terms of construction was even nicer than the structure of Medina buoy. But that made no difference. We spend some some summit sometimes we spent so much time obsessing over the structure, the look the construction,
the the vanity of a place without ever thinking about what are the values that it espouses? What are the values that it is built upon? What are the values that it calls to
have? How are people treated when they come in there? What do people leave there with?
That's what we have to think about. The majority of the profits are lovely, some there's something I talk about quite often. I don't want to speak too long. But the walls of the material, the processor, more mud, dried mud. And there were some rocks, they stacked up a bunch of rocks, they plastered it with a bunch of mud, and they just let it bake in the sun. And that's what it was like the roof. date palm trees have been chopped down in the logs. The trunks had been laid across, and the space in between was filled with leaves of date palm trees. And when it would rain, the water would still drip through. The ground of the mustard was the dirt, the ground the earth. And
eventually a Sahabi came and he put some pebbles down.
But even then the pebbles used to poke them.
Like it still wasn't a perfect solution. It used to be dark, so dark that 100 times a shadow the Allahu taala Anna says you couldn't recognize a person praying next to you.
Like you're often Amina lavalas, you can recognize who was praying next to you.
And then finally, in the ninth year of interrupt me my daddy brought and put a lantern in the mud of the profits of luxury. Nine years later, there was light. That's how simple the structure was.
But it's one of the most blessed places on earth. Guidance spread from there to all of humanity, all across the world. And humanity. So flux there till today.
And this machine might have been nicer but the foundation the values, the ideas that it was built with were corrupt and it had no value, no significance.
In the eyes of God, it's a serious gut check for each and every single one of us. building of a community establishment of a mosque is a very beautiful, very noble endeavor and project.
But we also have to do a lot of soul searching, constantly keep revisiting, why are we doing this? Why is this here? What are we trying to achieve? What are we achieving and accomplishing, we have to constantly be thinking about that.
And the second thing I mentioned is a lot declared that this machine was evil, this place was evil. And that's why the Sahaba did not adhere to the law, which Allah who was in charge of Medina did not do anything to not say anything until the Prophet came back. At the same time, what you will come across sometimes in certain communities is people will use this example to try to,
to try to sabotage somebody else, to try to put someone else on blast, so to speak. Right and try to you know, revile someone else. antagonize another community, we have no right to do so. We are not allowed to do that. I cannot sit and say we're Monsieur de luces. Allah tala where the good mosque there the bad mosque. I don't get revelation, neither do you, nor does anyone. So we do not have the ability to definitively say that is measured there are as very bad. And we're not supposed to do that. We're not allowed to do that. These verses are present in the Quran for us to check ourselves not to gauge and measure someone else. Or they did or not, no, no, it's for me. Okay. And with that
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the companions, they arrived back in the city of Medina. And the last thing I mentioned here is in Bahati, the prophets Allah He said, The Allahu taala No, he said, in a bill Medina to acquirement, massive to Merci de la katatak huadian illa Cano, Marco, that there were some people who are back home in Medina, Every valley you pass through every mountain you climbed everything you went through, it's as if they were with you the whole way.
They were with you in spirit and they will get the reward. Your Rasul Allah whom bill Medina they said that they were in Medina now were they with us like how do they get the reward? The prophets a lot of them said we're humble Medina t habits are familiar through. These were people who sincerely wanted to come,
but they had legitimate reasons why they were not able to come. So God gave them the full reward. And finally mumble heart He also mentions that
when they arrived close back to the city of Medina and they could see that city of Medina in the distance.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pointed to the city of Medina and said how the heat Baba has he taba. There's our beautiful home there's our beautiful home
and the prophets a lot of them said we'll have that hood and here's the mountain of Orford, Jabulani buena when you're hibou This is a mountain it loves us and we love it. This is home. The process of had such a profound love for the city of Medina. And we've all heard the very famous story that the prophets a lot of them when he arrived in the city of Medina, during the hegemon when he arrived, then everybody came out of their homes singing and welcoming the prophets a lovely set of balabhadra Alena min Sania, Tiwari, whatever sukru Elena Mother alila Heydari, some of the scholars mentioned that the same poem was said also, someone mentioned that it was only said at this occasion, not at
that occasion, not at hegira. But when the profitsystem came back from the book, because when they left, they were going to go fight the Roman army that was 10 times their size. So they didn't know if they were going to come back or not. But when the Protestantism came back, they were so happy, they sang this welcoming the whole song back, and even cathedra ham Allahu taala says it actually happened on both occasions, that when the prophecy seven came back home, they sang this welcoming the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam back home. And
lastly, and finally, there's a very interesting kind of fact about the book. There are only two people behind, behind whom the prophets a lot is in praise Allah. There are only two human beings who led the prophets, a lot of them in prayer. The first is Abu Bakar during the last few days of his life, of course, because the prophets has told them to and the second is Abdur Rahman bin
and this was on the journey of the book. Because during the journey of the book, The promises on how to use the restroom, and they couldn't find a good place a private place for him to go and use the restroom. Move it up and sure about a companion of the Prophet was with him taking him
and they kept on going and going and going going and finally they found the place really far away for the process of to use the restroom after use the restroom, then they were looking for water for him to do we'll do and then they finally found the water. By the time they came back. The prayer time was about to end. The Sahaba had started to get nervous. What do we do? So they said we should start praying so they
started praying, and I've been out fled the prayer. The Prophet stillson came in halfway through the prayer and joined into the prayer and prayed behind the drum. And when
when the prayer finished, and they looked back, and you know, whenever you look back, you kind of like, somebody stands up and is finishing up the prayer and you're like, Oh, you know, I'm gonna hear, right. So you kind of see someone. They turn around, they're like, oh, and it's the profits. allottee so I'm standing up and completely his prayer, and they were all like, Oh, no.
Did we just do and literally the narration mentions that for Lama Salah manasu are the moonwalk? Are they sort of freaking out? Oh, what do we do now? Right. When the profits a lot isn't finished praying what he had missed from the prayer. He said, I sent him wha sama to what you did is good and what you did is correct. And there's aside from teaching us that that's what you do in that situation. It also teaches us another very profound lesson about the humility of the prophets a lot. He said, he didn't wait for me. If anybody could have ever said that it was a prophet. So obviously, you didn't wait for me. But he didn't say that. Because it's prayer time. Prayer is more important
And the prophesy ism also showed us how strategically the prophets a lot of them implemented a succession plan. He taught them how to pray and he taught them how to lead the prayer. And he taught them how to have a congregation. Any Allah subhanaw taala knows best. Maybe this was the wisdom of the prophets
to see if they would know what to do in this situation. So you see the succession planning of the profits a lot easier as well in this scenario, and May Allah subhanaw taala grant us all the ability to practice everything we've said and heard so Hanalei reham de semana columbium Nick Michel de la Ilaha. illa Anta a Sufi Luca went to blue lake
