inshallah, continuing with our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a sirata number we had the prophetic biography.
In the last few sessions we have been talking about the Battle of the book, we talked about in a number of sessions, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what was the impetus to the campaign in the exposition of the book, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Muslims, how they exactly prepared for the exposition of the book, their journey to the book, and then we talked about their arrival and exactly what transpired at the place of the book. And then we talked about ultimately, the consequence and the outcome of the entire expedition of the book and what exactly happened there and when we left off last we were talking about the journey back home, the journey back to the city
of Medina and in fact, we talked about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrival back to Medina. And we talked about how the prophets a loving son was so excited to be back home in Medina. And the fact that the only journey the prophets Allah nation will take after this point going forward would be for digital readout for the farewell pilgrimage. So there was almost like a sense of relief that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam felt at his arrival back into the city of Medina, because he was back home how the heat Baba, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, this is our beautiful home of Medina. So what we're going to talk about today is one of the very well known
stories that is associated
with this particular event, the expedition to the book, it's something that the Quran references as well, we're going to be going through the passages of the Quran that are relevant to the entire situation of the book, in the next session in sha Allah as a conclusion to it because you're able to once you've studied each event in detail, and then you go back and you go through the passages of the Quran, you're able to kind of see how the Quranic narrative is put together. And what the Quran emphasizing how the Quran basically not only tells the story, but the lessons that it teaches us subsequently. So what we're going to talk about today is something that is is mentioned within the
Quran itself. And that is the story that is famously known as the story of cabin Malik. Now, it is not only the story of cabin Malik, rather what we're going to talk about today is the story of about 13 individuals 13 individuals, but it is famously known as a story of cabin Malik because it is one of the lengthiest narrations that is found in the Sahaba remember hottie it's one of the lengthiest ahaadeeth authentic narrations that you will find in the books of Hadith. And it is narrated in the first person by cabin Malik. That's how it became very well known and documented as the story of Goblin mechanic.
So what I'm going to be going through today
is the narration of Makati embodies narration about this howdy Phu Kham was famously known as the narration of God, by the Allahu taala, and who a little bit of quick background and gab actually will make reference to some of his own background in this, but real quickly, just so that we know who we're talking about gabin Mallika, the Allahu taala, and who was an unsavoury he was a Medina and Muslim. He was originally from the city of Medina. He was a younger man at this particular point in time, he was probably maybe in his late 20s, at the most 30 years old when he accepted Islam. He was one of the Muslims who came and gave the oath of allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam, before the Prophet Solomon migrated to Medina in the area of Mena during the season of Hajj. And in fact, some of the narrations mentioned that he was the very first one to give the oath of allegiance to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was also a very, very skilled and talented poet. He was a shy he was a very skilled and talented poet. And in fact, one of his very beautiful stories is mentioned that when he came to Mecca that particular year at the season of
Hodge, and they came there they were Muslim they had converted because of the Dharma and the preaching of masabi Urmila, the Allahu taala. And who, and they were coming to give the oath of allegiance of the prophets, a lot of these women also present their proposal, their proposal was that we are asking you to come to the city of Medina and make that your home and your base of operations. And that will serve as a safe place, a refuge, a sanctuary for all the Muslims, anyone who believes. So when they arrived there, they were briefed by masabi, no matter the Allahu taala. And who that look, Mecca is not like anything like Medina, Medina was very, you know, for the most
part, it was very relaxed. Everybody was very comfortable with one another, there was a Jewish community, there were still Arabs, who were still holding on to the old ways of shed, there was a huge number hundreds of Muslims now who had accepted Islam, but nobody really had up until this point, had a real problem with one another, and everybody could practice what they practiced freely and openly.
But they he briefed them saying, look, Mecca is not like that at all. Right? MCI is very, very tense. MCI is on the edge of just, you know, combusting. So you have to be very careful. So when we go there, you got to keep a low profile, you gotta Mind your own business, you can go around talking about Islam and the prophets, a lot of them can go looking for him, we have a set meeting and a schedule with him, an appointment with him that will occur in the middle of the night on the last night that we are in Mena, just so that
we're able to have that particular meeting, and then we're able to move on without causing any problem. So he had already briefed them Gaben Malik was attached. He was a young man at this time, maybe in his late teens, or 20 years old at the most. And he was attached as kind of a personal assistant, to look after and to take care of one of the elders of the unsought, whose name was Robin Maru, by Robin Marula. It's a very touching story even that he has, but nevertheless, to kind of stay on topic as much as we can, when they arrive there but Robin model says, You know, I understand, you know, uncle, sometimes they kind of operate with their own set of rules. So he says,
I know that we were told not to go meet the prophet to love him. But I have an in I know his uncle Ibis from back in the day, we've done business together. So he goes and he meets with a bus and cabin Malik is along with him. And he says to our bus, he goes, is it possible for me to meet your nephew? Our bus or the Allahu taala know, who's a Muslim at this particular point? He understood. He recognized the fact that Okay, looks like he's Muslim. So he says, Yeah, sure, I can introduce you to him. And he called the prophets a lot. He said, my window Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came.
And they sat down. Ibis started to introduce them. And he said that you know, to the prophets of Salaam hada. Cejudo call me he will borrow home, wash it for home, walk hubiera home waka waka waka right, that this is a leader of his people and he is an elder of his people and he's a nobleman of his people and etc, etc, etc. And then he says we have that gap. And this has kept like the introduction was this is so and such and such and such and such and such, and this is gap. And Goblin Malik says that was my first introduction to the prophets allottee seminar. I was so eager to meet the prophets a lot. He said them that I just felt really disappointed. He actually says I felt
And the prophets a lot of a sudden was just so sensitive to other people. He was so empathetic. He says the prophets a lot of him kind of felt my embarrassment. And the prophets, a lot of them said,
Wait a second, aren't you the poet? I've heard a lot about you.
And he said that Lanza Rasulullah, histologic I'll never forget those words of the prophets of Salaam to me. It meant so much to me. So this is garbage. That's why he says that. Finally on that night when we congregated and we were called forth to give the oath of allegiance, he said, I rushed forward and I put my hand in the hand of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to accept Islam. And so this is who cobbin Malik is he's a young man. He is a devoted Companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He was very talented man, particularly at that time poets were people who really crafted and controlled, you know, and and impacted and affected the culture at that time. My dad believed the
term diseases influencers, right? People who have influenced so he was an influencer of his time, that's who poets were. So he's a very talented young man. And he was also a very devoted young man. And so he actually says that I never
really like is it something that's within ha ha. In LA fever SATA book VEDA unequal to the left if he has it better, he says, I never stayed behind.
from any of the expeditions at the profits, a lot of them went on. None of the battles of the profits a lot of the salmon participated in, except for the battle liftable except for the expedition of the book, he says, and also the Battle of butter. I did not I was out there for the Battle of butter, but he explains why well, I mean
nobody who missed out on the Battle of Bunker was reprimanded for it in a Maharaja Rasul Allah Sham you reduce evaporation Hata jamala. Kobe now when I do my laugh at me, I didn't. He says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did not originally leave Mecca with the intent of the battle. They were going to intercept the caravan of Abu sufian. And then lo and behold, that ended up becoming, you know, the battle that it became. So for that reason, there was no sin, there was no representation upon anyone who missed out on the Battle of butter. So I was out there for about that. But after that, I participated in every single campaign, every single expedition, I never left
the side of the prophets, a lot of them except for the book. So he tells the story exactly what happened. So he says that
he even goes on to say, Well, I can show him tomorrow. allowed him Laila till October. He says he never was acknowledged Islami, he says I participated on that night when we gave the oath of allegiance to the prophets a lot. He said them well my Oh hey, boo anelli Bihar Mashallah, Madeline. We're in Ghana Berggruen after afanasyev minha. He says even though bother was a more famous incident, I would not have traded my place on that night in May now when we gave the oath of allegiance to the process of them, even if I could trade that to have been at Burger I would not trade it. But that was more well known was more famous because it was a battle. It was more
glorious. But he says that night that we gave the oath of allegiance to the prophets a lot. He said, I'm at the sacred place. I mean, I was a very special night, and I was there and I was the first one to give the oath of allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Nevertheless, he goes on to say, he says ngadimin Huberty and Neelam upon Pato Aqua wa Taala.
He says that I had never been more physically able, nor had I been more financially capable, that I was at the time of the book, when I actually stayed back.
And he goes on to explain that he says, He also swears he says we're lucky. He says, similarly, I swear by Allah. I had never owned two transportations in my life before that moment. That was the first time in my life that I owned not one but two camels. I own two modes of transportation.
And he says that there had never been a battle before in which the profits a lot of them mandated and necessitated that each and every single person who was capable and able, financially capable and physically able that they needed to go
every male who was financially capable and physically able had to go. He said that was the first time the profits allowed him ever demanded that.
And he says that this wasn't the dead heat of summer. It was one of those brutal summers that we had had a Hazara slicer, something Halloween chedid was stuck, Bella suffered and buried and Mama fires. And while I do want Catherine, he says that it was a very distant long journey, we were going to be passing through the middle of nowhere. And we were going to reportedly face a very large, abundant enemy. So he says the Muslims all gathered together and really pitched in and came with their enthusiasm. And they set out and he says the Muslims were also so many. We had never seen such a large number of Muslims before. There were 30,000 Sahaba who went from the Battle of Dubuque, as we
talked about previously, he says that there were so many that what I get from our home Kitab one half it when you read the one, he says there were so many that were they were not even able to record all the names of the companions. Usually, whenever they would set out for battle, they would have a roster, they would have a roster of everyone who was going just so they could keep track of everyone. But he said there were so many that they couldn't even keep a roster. That's how many there were 30,000. But the enemy that they were going to me was reportedly 100 Some said 200 Some said 300,000 soldiers were coming from Rome. So he says it was very it was a huge moment. And he
said that nobody stayed back
out of fear that if somebody was capable and able and they were a believer, and they stayed back, they were afraid they were fearful that God would reveal something about them reprimanding them, so nobody stayed back. And not only that, but he also says the prophets a lot of young workers are also licensed Salaam, Tankless water Hina Tabata Thema was the land. He says that the Prophet sallallahu some set out on this particular expedition when the fruits were ripe, and the trees were ready to be picked and plucked, and he says the prophets Allah Islam and the Muslims are prepared.
And he says that I intended to go. I had every intention to go. There's a very fascinating point I'm going to kind of interject since it's such a long narration, I'll interject certain ideas and points that we can learn from inshallah, that
he says I intend for the film to
look at Joe has ma whom he says I intended to go, I had every intention to go.
But here's the thing, we do know that intention is very, very important. intent is essential. In mallamma, Lu bieniasz. intent is essential. intentionality is a very foundational and fundamental and central component of our spirituality and our Deen and religion. However, it is not the entirety of it. right intention, a good intention will not excuse about action.
Right, a good intention will not excuse inaction.
I can want to pray Asia.
But if I don't actually get up and make will do and come and stand and say Allahu Akbar, it's all for knowledge. Now, if I go to make will do and I don't find water, and I'm searching around looking for water, you know, where something happens, or this happens, or that happens, or, you know, some some incident occurs that prevents me obstructs me from praying, that's a different story. That's a different story. Now, the intention is important. But if I'm just laying there, right away, I'm just sitting there wide awake. And I'm like, yeah, Patricia, I want to pre show and I don't pray your show, then there's nothing that excuses that and that intentionality is really meaningless. So it
must be followed up, and it must be supplemented by good action and proper action. So he says for rGr, when I'm up to date, and he says, I went home to prepare, but then I did not prepare. See, that's, that's the point. I didn't prepare. I was not motivated. You have to be motivated, you have to be driven, you have to inspire yourself, you sometimes have to kind of drag yourself if need be, but you got to follow that effort. You got to follow it up with some effort fabu if enough, see, and apparently don't lie. And that's the second thing. He says I kept telling myself I can get ready. It's no big deal. Sometimes that delusion, that sense of overconfidence settles in, take care of
it's no big deal.
But the profits, a lot of them in the Quran, in fact teaches us that when it comes to doing the right thing, when it comes to doing good things. You have to be extra motivated, you cannot put it off. You cannot procrastinate. wasabia Ooh, a llama Farah tomorrow, bacon festival hierarchy hydrography valic affiliate. And so there must be that motivation, that drive that has to be there. So he says that, you know, people kept preparing and getting ready. And I just kept kind of putting it off. Like, I'll get ready, I'll get ready. I'll get ready. Until the morning came in the profits. A lot of the Muslims were leaving, and I had not prepared yet. So I told myself at that time, again,
here comes that overconfidence, and this is something the Quran speaks about, well, I can attend to him and fullcycle What are abasto right, that sometimes you put something off, you procrastinate. And that's also a trap and a trick of the knifes and of shape on where you procrastinate and things you put off. So he said that I then told myself, I can always prepare and leave a day or two later, because 30,000 people when they travel, they're going to be traveling slower. If I live by myself, I'll easily catch up with them. And they're going so far away, more than enough time to catch up.
So he says, I kept telling that to myself, that our job to LMR condition, but I go home, and I wouldn't do anything about it. So much. I go to Morocco, whenever I'd wake up the next day, go out again and be like, Okay, today, I'll get ready, and I'll prepare and I'll leave. And again, I wouldn't make the proper preparations. I didn't take it seriously enough. And the day would go by and I had not prepared it and didn't do anything about it. So he says that I kept on doing that, until they reach their destination. At that time has come to an LFO Audrey Cahoon when
he says then when I when we got the news that they've reached a place of Kabuki. Then I said to myself now for sure I'm going to get ready and leave and go join them there. Because apparently the processor was going to be staying there for some time. And he did, as we know, stay there for about 20 days.
So he says I told myself I'll get ready and I'll go and he says I wish I would have I wish I would have late and he found too but I did not follow up with Alec I just wasn't meant to be. So finally, he then says that for Kentucky the Hershey financee bada bada Coronavirus relies a lot for to feed him as a nanny.
Nila Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, he and the Falco orajel, among other Allahu Akbar Allahu Minato. He will give good name Rasulullah sallallahu Mahabharata book sakalava, Hua jellison, Phil Amita, Bookman falaka. So he says that when I after the process, I'm left one day, I went around and I walked around Medina because I got a little curious. And the only people that I saw the only men that I saw that were still there were one of two types, either somebody who was very clearly known as a hypocrites. or number two I saw very elderly or ill people who were excused from going because we're not physically able. And he said that that really, really pained me, the situation the
position I'd put myself in.
And he said, I also heard that the profits a lot of them did not mention me until he reached a book. When he reached the book, The professor, some said, we're scarb I don't see God.
So man from New Salima, which was the tribe of God. He says that one man he said, habits are who Buddha who were not roofie it fate he, he says that his comfort and his luxury has kept him home. And he has become enamored with the things of this world. And basically alluded to the fact that maybe my son wasn't as like sound or strong or reliable. And he says, more I've been given or the Allahu taala and who who's also from Bhanu, Salah. He was also like, you know, one of my tribes people. He said pizza makuta he says it is incorrect What you say? We're lucky. Rasul Allah. Ma alumna, Allah Hila. Hayden, we've always known God to be a good person. He's a righteous man. That's
not true. For secretarial isolation, the process and remain quiet, which was the profits or license way of saying we'll see to be determined.
He says that I then got the news. And now hahaha coffee then that the profits a lot of some of the Muslims were coming back on. He says hello Ronnie HMI. I was overcome with grief at that moment. What have I done?
And he said, I started to think about all the excuses and all the lies and all the ways I could talk myself out of the situation. He was a poet, talented man, man of words. So he says I can talk my way out of any situation. So I started to think about that.
And he said that I thought to myself,
that he said eventually when I thought more on it in the news came that the profits allowed him out arrived outside of Medina and he was going to be coming into town the next day. He says the Honeywell battery
all these evil bad thoughts about coming up with some story spinning some tail that just left me and he says something very powerful. He says that I realized that a lie will never save me will never help me in my predicaments.
So I made up my mind that I was going to be truthful with him. When the prophets a lot of him arrived back in Medina in the morning and whenever the prophets of some arrived back in Medina, his habit was he would first go to the masjid, you would pray to the gods there for your coffee in a coffee, he would pray to the gods in the masjid. Then he would sit with the people and just gather the reports of what had transpired, what had happened and so on and so forth. So, he said, the hypocrites who had stayed back they started coming and making excuses. And the problem and he says there were about 80 some odd of these individuals have these hypocrites, and they all came in they
made their excuses and the prophets, a lot of them accepted their excuses. He would just say, okay, okay, okay, okay, I understand I understand I understand. That's not necessarily validate me like, Oh, yeah, no, that's nobody just said okay, okay, I hear you, I understand, okay.
And then he says, well buy your home was up for a loan. And then after they would make their excuses, they would say, oh, messenger of Allah, we want to prove to you that we're loyal, allow us to give you the oath of allegiance again, the processor would say, okay, you would let them carry on with their charade. They would give their oath of allegiance and then you say, please make the offer us and the processor would make dua, May Allah forgive you, you know, you just do his part.
And well, what calissa you know, who is Allah has ever done, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam ultimately said, Allah knows best, and Allah will deal with their internal realities. And here's another very fascinating point that the prophets a lot even taught us and this is a very important lesson. We've talked about this numerous times before. That a principle of our Deen in our religion that we learn from the prophets Allah is not not gonna be the wild wild Lakota well tala saraya. We deal with the apparent Reality of Things and we leave the internal we deal with the apparent
conditions of things.
And we leave the internal Reality of Things to Allah subhanaw taala.
We can only judge we can only deal with the external appearance, circumstances, conditions of things. But somebody like oh, but that's that I think that's what he was really trying to get at. I don't know that. And we leave that to a lot. And a lot of times people get worried about that, well, then how do you know someone's not lying, and they're not being sneaky, and they're not doing this, we have to fundamentally understand our belief in Allah subhanaw taala has to be a part of the equation at some point. So what could putting your faith and your trust and your reliance upon a law is a very fundamental concept. And we have to remember that, and so we can't get caught up in this
game of like, I know that this guy is. So if somebody comes to you, and they apologize, and someone's like, you know, he really didn't mean that
is not my job. I can't worry about whether you meant it or not. Well, what if he apologizes to you just to get your guard down? And things are gonna come at you again, then so be it? I mean, Allah subhanaw taala is, is there we put our faith in our trust in Allah. Otherwise, if you don't have any faith and trust in Allah, we were we're trying to figure out what everything is and what everything isn't. And we're gonna solve everything, we're gonna do everything, then what's the point of the faith in Allah? subhanaw taala? Where does the faith come into the equation? Is the hereafter a part of our con, you know, part of our thought process or not? The ultimate justice in the hereafter? Is
that part of our thought process or not? Right, so this is what's talked about here.
So Nevertheless, he says, When I came to the process that I'm Salim to Allah, He I said Salaam to the processor. I stood there near him. He was sitting, and I said, so are they coming at us? Oh, Lola, De Tomaso mal modem. The Prophet celebration smiled. I mean, but he kind of smiled like disapprovingly at me. I just kind of smile, you shake your head at someone like you trouble here comes trouble.
Right? So he said, the professor Sam gave me that look, and he said to come here for you. And he said, I went and I sat down in front of the prophets a lot. He sent me the process and said Maha lavaca. Why do you stay back? What kept you home?
And he says that the processor and followed up and he says, lm chikankari, Tata Baraka Didn't you have transportation? I said, Of course I did. And he said that. I then said to the process, I mean, this is very profound when he says, We're lucky. I'll share the words exactly verbatim what in me we're lucky. No jealousy. We're in the lady communality. dounia, Laura, a two unsolved human sahibi, earthen
will occur the word the two gentlemen. He says that if I were sitting with anyone else, of worldly authority, if I was sitting with anyone else of worldly authority, a governor or a mayor or a police, police officer, somebody like that, he said that, and I felt like I could, you know, make an excuse and talk myself out of that situation I would have well according to gender, and I've been given a remarkable ability to talk my way around people. I can talk circles around people. Well, I can you were lucky, lucky to have him too. But I know for a fact, they had ethical Yamaha diesel cars, even turbo bihani. That if I tell you a lie today that appeases you right now, in the moment,
like you, she can Allahu and use Krita Calleja. I know that eventually God will tell you the truth and the reality of things, and then you'll be upset with me. Well, in her death, Touka hadiza Silicon Valley fee. And if I tell you the truth that I was just lazy, and I was an inattentive and I was not focused, and I let you know, the opportunity slip by
if I'm honest and truthful with you, that I am to blame solely me
and my inability to act. And in the moment, you will be upset with me right now.
We're in Neela arms up here for law, but I hope for the forgiveness from God. And when God forgives me, then you will also be okay with me. Law we're lucky makanda need northren he says I swear to God, I have no valid excuse. I have no valid excuse. Like him, I come to a to a ceremony.
He says I've never been in bed in a better more capable and more able than I was when I stayed back. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said Maha Sabha said this one is spoken the truth all those other dudes that lined up. Everybody had some situation or another right everybody else whose dog ate their homework, right? Those those bunch of liars. This guy he speaks the truth
hotteok the Allahu fi he says now go and Allah will decide your fate. So he says that I left and a group of new salema my tribes people
came after me and they said that, you know, you've never done anything wrong ever before my eyes open up to them and
you've never done anything wrong ever before.
And he says that you couldn't make a simple excuse all those people lined up and made excuses. You could have just made an excuse
and asked the Prophet Salamis him to pray for your forgiveness eventually, and made Toba and repentance eventually, and it would have it would have eventually worked itself out.
But you've had a clean record up to this particular point. It's a first offense. It's okay.
But he says that they kept on pushing me they kept on pushing me they kept on pushing me mazuelo you only Boone and he had to
say, he says to the point where I actually considered for a moment that maybe I should go back and tell the process and disregard everything I said, I did have a valid excuse. I was just too embarrassed to present it to you. But then I said how lucky I have Am I hadn't. But he says I changed the topic. And I said Is there anyone else in my situation who just came and just kind of laid it out in front of the profits and put all their cards on the table said I was completely capable and able of going I just was lazy and I just you know, was neglectful.
I am to blame. Was there anybody else? And they said he had there's two other guys that are Giuliani with me from Appleton who said a similar thing to the prophets of Salaam. He said I asked who they were and I was told that they were marrara Mirage neurobiol aroma alhama de la Lumia, McAfee marrara and hiline.
cab was a younger man maybe in his late 20s. morado was more of a middle aged man probably around 40. And he loud was a more elderly gentleman probably in his 50s approaching 60. And he says Not only that, but he goes on to say Roger Lamy solly heinekens shahida Berger and FEMA suswa. He says they were two very righteous companions of the prophets, a lot of them and they had participated in the Battle of whether they were buddies and the US harbor whether we talked about it back when we studied but the prophets a lot some asked jabril ani Salaam, that what is the status of the angels amongst all the angels who participate in bothered? What is their status amongst all the other
angels and gibreel Elisa Lam said that they are considered in higher esteem than all the other angels. And the prophets. A lot of them said the same with us.
The Sahaba who participated in brother are held in higher esteem. So these were bothering Sahaba. And he said they were role models in the community. So eventually the prophets Allah issued the verdict as it came down from God. And that was that nobody was to speak to us. And that we were basically to observe silence and kind of isolation from the community for a duration of 50 days for a duration of 50 days.
And so that was our fate. Ultimately, he says that the other two he Lally marrara, they foster Karla, they decided to stay home and not come out of their homes. And they stayed in their homes making Toba crying, making dry and praying. He says for me, as I as far as I was concerned, why am I never going to?
He says I was younger than the other two of them. So I was a little bit more kind of anxious, I couldn't just be at home. And number two, he says I was a little bit more kind of brash as a poet, but he says I was a little bit more brash or a little bit more outgoing. So he said, I said, I'm not going to stay home. So he said, I used to go out and about and I would go to the prayer, I would go and pray in the masjid, just like I did normally. And I would walk around in the marketplaces, nobody would talk to me. And he says, every single time I came to the masjid, I would say Salaam to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then I would watch his mouth very carefully and I would
see him move his lips in responding to Salaam and let me know that okay, I'm just observing my time but I'm still you know, good. And he says, Not only that, he says for that as well to Allah salata Akbar, Allah, Elijah will suffer to the who, out of the army. He says, When I would start praying or reading or making an hour doing something like that, the prophets allowed him would look over at me and just check on me, he would be looking at me. And he said, when I would look back at him that he would look away. So he said, I used to play this game with the prophets a lot and make sure that you know, he still cared about me. He was still looking at me.
And he said, until finally it got to a point where about halfway through about a month into it, it just became unbearable. He says my cousin, his name was Abu Qatada. I climbed up a bukata was sitting on the roof of his home, I climbed up the wall, and I saw Abu Qatada sitting up on his roof. And he said, I made God your witness. And she looked at me like he asked you for the sake of Allah.
Don't you know how to alimony Hey boo la hora Sula, who don't you know that I love God in His Messenger for secada for Tila, who financial to who for sakata, for Atilla who finish up to, he says, Then he stayed quiet. And I asked him again. I said, I asked you in the name of God, don't I love a line as much as am I not a sincere Muslim? And he saved quiet again. Then I asked him a third time, and he said, a lot of what
I want is messenger know best.
Like, what do you want me to say?
And he says that I started to cry. I broke down into tears. And I came down from the wall, and I started to kind of walk around in the marketplace, just kind of feeling sorry for myself. While I was walking around, a messenger arrived from out of town, and he was asking for me,
someone pointed me out. That's God. So he's came, he came to me and he delivered a letter to me. He was delivering a letter from the king of Hassan Malik Hassan, the king of Hassan, basically, Hassan, this tribe. These were Arab Christians. These they were from the Arab, but they were Christian. They were they were basically an extension of the Roman Empire. And they were loyal to the Roman Empire at that time. So the king of kasana had sent me a letter because again, you know, you know, cabin Malik was a poet and an influencer a notable companion. So he had sent a letter and he said in it, he wrote in the hoop Advani and the Sahaba Kaka Jaffa,
we have learned that your friend, your leader, has abandoned you.
He's cast you out.
And well, me as your uncle Lacombe, Daddy hawan and mallamma. Dia. And he said, Phil has been no asik. He says that you do not need to suffer that indignity. And that misery, come and join us. We'll treat you well. We'll take care of you.
And when I read this, I said, How about a terminal Bella, this is another part of the test and the misery of my situation. I wasn't relieved. Haha, you see, people want me.
I wasn't relieved by that idea. I was I was even further insulted by this notion.
And he says that I found another narration he actually says I was insulted by the fact that even the enemies of Islam see you as an opportunity. how weak must I be in my faith that they think they can win me over? They think I would turn my back on the Lyman's messenger.
So he says I was I was devastated. And so he said, I thought I saw that there was a there was a an oven, you know, where they make bread or something like that there was an oven nearby. And I took the letter and I threw it in there.
He says when 40 days of the 50 passed, a messenger came from the prophets a lot of the time and he basically said that even your wife is now told to basically observe some separation for you from you for the remaining 10 days.
And he says that I told my wife that why don't you go stay with your family, and respect, you know, the terms that the prophets Allah said down? He says, in fact, I asked the messenger that this process of oneness to divorce, is that what that means? And he said, No, of course not. Right? That's not a part of a song breaking up families. But this is more for you to observe your isolation, and to really think about what you've done.
He says he allowed was an elderly man. So his wife went to the profits allowed him and said, he loves an elderly man. We're poor, simple folk. We don't have any type of servants or anything like that. There's nobody who really look after him and take care of him and things like that. So can I stay? Just to look after him? The prophets, a lot of him said, that's fine. But of course, you know, try to refrain from intimacy and things like that. And she said, of course, that's the furthest thing from his mind. All he does is pray and cry and pray and cry ever since his ordeal has began. And he says, God says my wife came to me and said, Look, the process of lead he loves wife stay, why
don't you ask if I can stay as well? And he said, No, he loves an old elderly man. I'm a young man. I would I would be I would be embarrassed to even ask. Let me do my time. I made a mistake. Let me pay the penance for my mistake. So he says that I observed those last 10 days. He said by the end of the day, these last 10 days of 50 days, it had really taken its toll. And I had found it more and more difficult to even go outside and go to the machine and things like that. He said one day I prayed fudger on the roof of my house. And I was sitting up there and while I was up there that day at fudger the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited the verses of Khattab, Allahu Allah momina
So Allah, the prophet system recited the verses that basically talks about the fact that God had accepted our repentance and God had acted
After our Penance and he had forgiven us, and he said somebody came while I was sitting there.
And he says what Allah said in the Koran, what dockets what Data Lake Malawi, Morocco. But even though the earth was so vast, it felt like it had narrowed down constricted around them, like the earth was closing in and around them. He says that I heard somebody call out to me, and he said, Get carbon malic option. He says, Hey, God, Congratulations, congratulations. And he says, I immediately fell into such a, and I realized that finally the relief had come from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And he said, people started coming by the house. People started running by the house, congratulating us, you but she Luna.
And he says that one man, he just he was riding his horse. He was from the tribe and no Aslam from my tribe. And he jumped off of his horse, and he climbed up on kind of an elevation there. And he said, Congratulations, congratulations. And you started congratulating me. And he says, I got so excited. So happy, I took off like the shawl that I was wearing the shirt, basically, the companies that I was wearing, I took it off, and I gave it to him as a gift. But he says I was a simple man, I didn't own any more clothing. So I took off my shirt and gave it to him. And then I realized I didn't have another shirt. And I wanted to go see the process. And I wasn't about to go shirtless.
So then he says, I went over to my neighbor's house, and I asked him, can I borrow a shirt? And he said, Sure, go, here's a shirt. It's simple. These people were, how sincere they were, you know, a lot of times we have a lot of criticism, when people are very just kind of like, caught in the moment. And they're very spiritual and very emotional and very, kind of like, you know, they, they, they they really give into the moment we kind of criticize that as if everyone's got to be some analytical mathematical machine and robot. But there's, there's, there's something really remarkable and beautiful about, you know, loving something so much, caring about something so much. Right?
They're sincere people, they were all heart, you know, and so, he says, I borrowed some clothes, and then I finally went to the machine.
He says, When I entered the machine, the Hunton Machida for ew rasulillah, he's a lot. He's a magician, hollowness.
He says, Now, if you ever visit, Madina, munawwara, elementary, the number we're sharing, if you ever visited the blessing city of Medina, and the beautiful machine of the prophets, allottee salaam, the blessing of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you see the portion that is, you know, the old machine, bro documentary agenda, the old machine of two promises from the original method. And it's, you know, not a whole lot bigger than this, maybe maybe, you know, one and a half or two size times the size of this at the most, maybe not even that much. Okay, so it's not very, very huge. It's not very, very big. And he says, the profits, the lovely son was sitting at the front, and
there were some companions sitting around him. And he says, I entered into the budget. So imagine entering from the back door there. And he says that, so it's not that far, like, how long does it take to walk from that door to right there where that podium is? Just a couple of seconds. It's not very far it doesn't take very long. And it says, even though I was there at that door, and I was just going to be there with everybody in a couple of seconds. He says, one of the companions of the Prophet SAW some tell her to obey the law. When the very remarkable companions Senior Companions of the prophet SAW them for karma illegal hunting obey the law. You How do we know Hata Safa, honey,
honey, he says, Paul ha got up, and he ran to me at the door and he shook my hand and he congratulated me and he embraced me. He says, We're lucky makabe Graciela Milano, Haji Rena, Hydra, hula, hula and Salat Allah. He says nobody else got up and met me like that, because I was not very far away. But he says, I will never forget that moment. What Allah did for me, and another very powerful lesson here, that sometimes it's a little little things. We under arrest, we underestimate the little things. And again, that goes back to kind of like that idea of just becoming too analytical and calculated and mathematic. Right? That just that's a problem.
But sometimes being empathetic,
and being sentimental
and caring about people, and not so much processing every single thing like Oh, how logical isn't he's right there. Just let him get here. And then we'll meet him. Like, what difference does it make if he walks here or I walk there, but it might make a difference to him. It might make a difference to him. Because he's in this very powerful moment where he knows that God has forgiven him, and he gets to rejoin our community, and he wants to shake someone's hand and he wants to feel a hug and he wants to be, you know, embraced and held by the shoulder and said, you know, told that you're my brother and I love you and I missed you. Like, that means something to
you know, like, you know, somebody, somebody you know has a happy occasion or a happy moment. And you're kind of like, oh, I'll see him in a couple of days. I'll just congratulate him then.
Yeah, but me just going out of my way 30 minutes out of my way and going and seeing him at that moment are sending calling him up or sending him a text saying I'm really really happy for you super excited for you Mashallah, well, Bada Congratulations, may Allah bless you may Allah put butter and blessing in it. I'm looking forward to seeing you in a couple of days, like this very small, take 60 seconds, but it could mean the world to that person.
And those are those are the small small kindnesses, kindnesses that the prophets a lot of them told us to never overlook and appreciate that that played on them in an artificial way. And that's why the process of said never underestimate a good deed. A good moment, a good opportunity. Right? And that's very, very important. That's what helps to build the bonds of community. That's what it takes to make a community. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he says that Allah harkaman he embraced me and he greeted me. And it just meant the world to me. And finally, he says, I went to the prophets of Salaam and I said Salaam to him, and the process of smiling. And he says that when
the prophets a lot of them was happy, his face would radiate as if you were looking at the moon, getting the Hakata to come on in. It's like it was it was like a piece of the moon, like a small moon, radiating beautiful, happy and the prophets of Salaam he said to me at that time, at Yeoman, Murali Kanaka he says congratulations is the happiest day of your life ever since your mother gave birth to you?
And he said that I asked the process of Amina in the Kiara Salam ala.
This is remarkable this our Sahaba were like really insightful people is very reminiscent of eyeshadow the Allahu taala Anna, when her ba was revealed within the Quran when she was absolved of any you know, all the accusations made against her she's you know when her with Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala no no man her mother and father basically said thank the prophets a lot of feminine she said I would thank him I'm gonna think I love her.
Right Allah subhanaw taala is one who absolved me from all these accusations. So again, he says all messenger of Allah is that you relieving me or as as God truly revealed relieved me.
And the profits a lot he said um said that navadmin in the law, no, this is from Allah.
And he says at that time, I said, Yeah, Rasul Allah in the mental but he and Holly I'm in Mali sakata nila Allahu ala rasulillah. As a part of my penance as part of my repentance. I would like to give away every single cent that I own, I'd like to give it all away in charity.
And this is another very teachable moment where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us something very powerful. And he says no, go to the prophets of Salaam said Nah, but I'm sick Alec about the Malika hydrolock don't give everything away. That's not that's not smart.
You gotta have something to live off of. You got a family to support because we give everything away and charity and kind of like this moment. Like see the two extremes I talked about that one calculated mathematical engine was forgiving me. I give my son a call, you know, at this particular time or day and stay on my schedule. And you know, it helps me balance my checkbook. And you know, it keeps things in order in this file by file my taxes and I get my tax receipt and like, Stop, please. Right? This is like the worst conversation of all time to spiritual accountant. Right? So that's one extreme, the opposite extreme. It's like oh my God, this greatest moment of my life.
And then you're kind of like, okay, whose house can I have dinner at tonight? Right so the two extremes there's a bounce in the middle and that's what the system said say give some away and keep some um say Kalika Baba Monica for hydralic some
right give given these important of charity as thanks and gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala but then keeps him so he said okay, I will keep the wealth that I received during the expedition in the campaign, the Battle of labor. And then I said to the prophet SAW some calves as jasola in the Lucha in Amana Gianni Bisset. Very powerful, he says O Messenger of Allah. Allah saved me through the truth. I spoke the truth and ultimately everything worked out. It was painful for a while.
It was painful for a while, but ultimately worked out your mama ghazali Rahim Allahu taala. In key Masada in the book, he actually talks about this idea where he talks about that when you know sometimes we don't do the right thing in the moment. Because the right thing in the moment sometimes can be a little bit painful.
But long in the long term, it's beneficial. Right? So when the doctor puts you under the knife, right, when doctor cuts you open, right? as painful, a little bit of pain there a little bit of pain into recovery, you're going to have a week or two of like a little bit of difficulty and pain and discomfort, but in the long run, you're going to be okay.
But if you're so afraid of that week or two of discomfort that you don't take that now you got a lifetime of misery ahead of you.
And that's enough, then options like no, don't stick me with the needle. Well, okay, then you can die.
Then you can die.
Right? When What did you achieve or accomplish? Right? That's enough. So it's very short sighted. But the soul The rule is farsighted, long sighted. And it says, okay, bring on the new, bring it up. I'll take the needle now. But then I'll be okay.
And that's what God is talking about here in the manor journey. Allah saved me by telling the truth, when the mantova to Allah. Allah said,
and part of my Toba is that I will always tell the truth for the rest of my life for liking by Allah Mohammed Musa Mina Allahu Allahu Allah Hafiz, add movies, cartoons, Alitalia rasulillah,
cinema abalone, and he says, God is so merciful, that I made that oath on that day that I will always tell the truth and Allah subhanaw taala never tested me. In regards to a situation ever again. He never put me in a tough enough of a spot right to consider between lying and telling the truth. Telling the truth was always easy. Allah subhanaw taala made the rest of my life very easy for me. And telling the truth was super easy for me. See, that's a better kind of blessing if you make the commitment.
He goes on to say
that he quotes the IRS we're lucky to have Allahu Allah and Obi Wan mahadji Lena while I'm thought that our last panel hotel accepted the repentance and forgave them. And he goes on to say that this was the greatest blessing in my life. That entire experience that I went through was the greatest blessing of my life. It taught me so much. And it also protected me from meeting the fate of those people who went and lied to the face of the prophets a lot. Because he said every single person who lied in the face of the process was destroyed. How are they destroyed? Allah subhanaw taala said about them in the Quran. Say Allah una de la que la comida even caliber to me they can literally do
annum for RB one in Amritsar format welcome Jan. I'm just happy
that all these people will swear to you and take oaths and tell you that they're telling the truth, so that you will not be upset and angry with them. A lot told the processor ignore them. They are filth, they are filthy, terrible, despicable people, they will end up in the fire of hell. And that is a that is a reward for what they have done and what they have earned. In a law like Daniel Kahneman fasciae, clean Allah will never be pleased with them.
And he says versus us three, who went and confessed and told the truth of the process of Allah said, well, Allah, Allah, Allah, The Merciful, God forgave all three of us. The last thing here and we'll conclude with this in sha Allah, is that I had said that they were not it's called the Hadith vocab. But it wasn't just a story of God. We learned about these three, but there were 10 other people. The story about the 10 other people is also narrated by my boss, I live in a beautiful house.
And I live in talha. And it's mentioned in many of the books of Sierra like the book of human is how can others be healthy? where it talks about the fact that there were about 10 people? What are her una una Terra forbidden ob Mahalo to Milan, Sania
as a la jolla to Bali him and Allah for him that there were some other people who also came forth. And they admitted they confessed to the fact that they had made a mistake. They had a lot of good deeds, they made a mistake. But ultimately God forgave them because the less forgiving and merciful there were about 10 people and the leader kind of the appointed leader amongst them was as a hobby by the name of Abu Baba, Abu Baba. And there were 10 nine more people with Abu Baba 10 total. And they kind of gathered together and they all talked amongst each other and said What was your issues? What was yours? And they all basically confessed to one another. We had no excuse. We messed up. We
had no issues we messed up. So bulevar said, Okay, I got this. So what happened was when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam came back, when they heard that he was coming back, Abu Baba said tie yourselves to the to the pillars of the machine.
tie yourself to the pillars of that's why one of the pillars in machinability original was always known as was to one Toba.
Right is the pillar of Toba. So he said tie yourself to the pillar. When the Protestants have entered the machine. You saw these people tied tied to the pillars. The process Some said man holla what is going on here? Right like what's the what's the deal? what's the what's his business and
Somebody told the prophets a lot he said that they have tied themselves to the pillar because they messed up, they stay back when they shouldn't have and they said that they will not release themselves leave this place until you forgive them.
The prophets a lot of them said I can't release them. So my decision is God's decision to make a level release them.
So they stayed there tied up.
And finally Allah subhanaw taala revealed in the Quran wa Karuna Torah forbidden obey Him the verse that I just mentioned, and the prophets, a lot of them told them that Allah has forgiven you. And so that's when they untied themselves on the pillar and they came and they basically also gave a lot of their wealth into South Africa. They said, We want to donate a lot of our wealth in charity, as penance for our mistake, the prophets have said to an Africa Amala
I have not been told to take your money. Like look at the ethics of the prophets. alavesa. Right. Try to go to a machine or an Islamic organization and say that I want to give my money over like Yes, absolutely. There's no question about it. The process is like no, no, no, no, no, I don't have a command from a lawyer to take your money.
And then our last panel, Allah revealed the verse hoodman emmalee him sakata to talk to him. What is a key him behind was suddenly Allah him in a salata second Allahu Allah, Allah, that Allah Spano, tala said, except the charity that they're offering, it will purify them and make to offer them when you make your offer them they'll feel better. And Allah subhanaw taala said, What are Karuna more generally I'm very lucky
that there are people who hope for the mercy of God, and they're willing to accept whatever the decision from Allah is, whether they're punished or they're forgiven, but Allah has, of course, forgiven them. And so that's when they basically untied themselves, they gave that charity, and they were also forgiven for having stayed back. And finally, even cathedra, from Allahu taala. He actually says that gamma holophone another SATA book about Oxfam, there were four types of people who stayed back from the book. There were four types of people who stayed back from the book. Number one Muna Mujuru, there were those who were told by the process of them to stay back from the book,
but they get the full reward, because they were following orders like alira, the Allahu taala. And we talked about that. The second group was Malibu, Nevada one marva. Well, mocha Luna wahoo buka.
There were some who are too weak to go did not have enough finances to go and the prophet SAW was said, and they still came and said, We want to go to the process and said, I know you want to come, but I can't take you we can't afford to bring you along. And the Quran talks about them that they cried. Right? So one lower fee domina demo, he has an analogy to my info. They cried and they said Oh Allah, we wish we could go and Allah will reward them. Then we're on Sutton musli buena de la boo Baba was Habermas, Karuna, then there were those who stayed back and they were blameworthy. But they confessed. They fest up and they paid their Penance and they were ultimately forgiven by law. Like
the story of the people we talked about. Then there was a fourth group, what are called Luna Malou, Mona, Mona, Mona, Mona, Mona, Mona Mona. Then there were those who stayed back and they were wrong. And they weren't even repentant. They weren't even repentant. And those were the hypocrites. So the big takeaway in the big lesson is, look,
there were those who went, sometimes when we know what we have to do, and we're able to do it and we're capable of doing it, we say Alhamdulillah and we thank Allah for the opportunity of doing it. Sometimes there's something that we're that we're supposed to do, but we're needed somewhere else. We're needed by the mandate of the religion we're needed elsewhere. We have to be willing to sacrifice our ego and our sense of self and do what needs to be done. I literally Allahu taala no king crying out of Medina. Please don't leave me behind. Please don't leave me. Why do you leave me behind? And the process I'm said, I need you there.
Now be a soldier, be a good soldier and go do your job.
So sometimes you're needed elsewhere and you got to sacrifice what you think you should be doing and do what you want what is needed, what is required, what is asked of you.
Then sometimes, there are moments where there's a call to action, but you're not capable of doing it. The lesson from hear from that group of people is you should still with every ounce every fiber every cell of your being, you should want to do it.
But you know you're not capable of it. But that doesn't mean that you still from your heart don't wish and want to be able to. That's called sincerity. nessa holy lackey Vasily Eva Masako de la hora. Allah says in Surah totoaba as long as they are sincere to God in His Messenger
Then the third is the next, the fourth predicament. The fourth situation is
there was a call to action, you were asked to do something. You were capable of doing it, but you did not do it. You were negligent. The thing to do in that situation is to own it. And to fess up. Say, I know I should have done it, but I didn't. And I'm doubling.
That truthfulness will set you free. The truth shall set you free. A cynical Yoongi the truth shall set you free. Right well capable. You're like lying, deluding yourself, deceiving yourself or trying to deceive someone else only will lead to doom and destruction.
And then the fifth predicament May Allah protect us all, is when you're asked to be somewhere to do something, and you can but you don't.
And then you decide to delude yourself. Recognize you don't delude God. You don't harm the community. You don't cause any detriment to the world around you. You destroy yourself. May Allah protect us all. So inshallah we'll go ahead and conclude here. I'm sorry about going over time, and inshallah we'll continue on in the next session.
