Salam aleikum to like Barakatuhu you're listening to the CLL podcast from Calum Institute. Before we get started on the podcast today, I had a very special message to share with everyone. If you've been listening to this podcast, learning the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and hopefully benefiting along the way, as well. The next step in your journey of not only getting to know the profits a lot, he said, I'm not only learning about how he lived his life, but also learning to live your life, more like Him. The next step in that journey, it's a completely and totally immerse yourself into the life of the prophets a lot. He said them, and they're in that

00:00:44--> 00:01:25

environment, learn his life. That is what we call the CSR intensive, where for 10 days, we ask people to come out on to Dallas, Texas, come down here spend 10 days with us, where we pray together, we eat together, we stay in the same place together, we learn together, we discuss things together, and we laugh and we cried together honestly. And we not only feel like we get to know the profits, all of a sudden you feel like you have really fall in love with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and by the time you leave, you have a better sense of how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lived his life, and you're inspired to at least attempt to do so. And by the way,

00:01:25--> 00:01:59

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that you meet some really cool people along the way and make some really awesome friends as well. So that's that experience is what we call the CETA intensive, so CNI intensive is coming up this year again. So I want everyone to head on over to Sita. intensive.com Check it out, sign up, come join us for a life changing experience, and also recommend it to family and friends. Camilla Hayden, thank you very much for continuing to listen to the podcast shared on with others. And without further ado, let's get started with this week's session.

00:02:03--> 00:02:08

Just relax you will have the lower salatu salam ala rasulillah who Allah and he was actually he he Bahrain,

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

Saudi Arabia, Qatar.

00:02:14--> 00:02:42

inshallah, continuing with our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam spirits in Abuja, the prophetic biography. First and foremost, I know that we have been on hiatus for quite some time. But hummed Allah after taking some time in sha Allah to just kind of recuperate and get back on track, wanted to restart in sha Allah, the class that we do here on a weekly basis.

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

And sha Allah similarly,

00:02:47--> 00:03:25

for the folks who may be listening, online or even follow along with the podcast and the recordings in sha Allah, we can hopefully start making that available to them as well. So to get to what we're going to be talking about today, insha Allah is that we were we left off in the ninth year of the life or the ninth year of higit, on the ninth year of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as residents in the city of Medina. So this is a ninth year of the residents of Medina, the ninth year of higgitt, or the ninth year of the Islamic calendar, if you will,

00:03:26--> 00:03:36

where we are exactly in that ninth year is not completely known. But overall, this ninth year was a very fascinating time.

00:03:37--> 00:04:22

And we had talked about this, this ninth year is known as amu food. I'm going to food which means the year of the delegations. And there were a couple of other major events that occurred within this ninth year of higit off. One of the most notable of them is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sent the first group of Muslims to perform the Hajj. And this is known as hudgell Islam hudgell Islam, and we had talked about that. The other thing that this ninth year or and then of course, the prophets a lot him himself would perform the Hajj in the 10th year hospital without. The other thing that the ninth year is known for is that this is the year after Fatah Mecca. This is the

00:04:22--> 00:04:59

year after the conquest of Mecca Mecca came into the fold of Islam. What that means is that basically, all of Arabia opened up to the idea of embracing Islam and coming into the fold of Islam. Because that the fact of the matter was that there were many tribes who are weak. There are many tribes who were very honestly interested in Islam, but they were also very afraid of how all of this was going to play out. MCO was still against Islam, but it was still against Islam. There was also the Romans had also made it known

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

They had an Anima an animosity towards the Muslims as well. And so while it is obviously doesn't sound very courageous, but in all honesty, it is also somewhat reasonable and understandable for a very weak group of people that they were afraid what the political fallout from this was going to be. And so many of them were held back from embracing Islam and coming to Medina and pledging their allegiance to Islam and to the prophets, a lot of them because they honestly just did not know how everything was going to play out. Once maka fell in Makkah came into the fold of Islam, thought if he had basically backed away from fighting the Muslims, as well do what had happened was they had

00:05:45--> 00:05:51

locked themselves in the fortress, but they would later on then come to Medina and embrace Islam. And we talked about that.

00:05:53--> 00:06:39

At this point in time, all of Arabia opened up to the idea of becoming Muslim. And so now they started flocking to Medina. And we're going to we already in the previous couple of sessions, we talked about the weapon of benoot, a meme that people have been neutering the tribe of a new Tamim coming in and bracing a song. And for the next couple of sessions, I'll try for the I'll make an effort so that it is not just too redundant, people came became Muslim went home, you know, there, there were some very unique interactions or profits, a lot of them had with each group. And so while of course, are mentioned, this group came, became Muslim, and then went back home. I will try to

00:06:39--> 00:07:25

highlight within that group's interaction with the prophets, a lot of them, what were some unique things that we learned from there. So the delegation that we're going to be talking about today is the delegation of Abdullah case, worth do Abdullah case, and Abdullah case, was the name of kind of the forefather of the tribe, the originator of the tribe, if you will, and the tribe became named after him. And that was very common. The prophets a lot of them said, Anna Hashem, Meagan, and she meegan Hashem was the great, great grandfather of the prophets a lot, etc. And so he said, I am a Hashemite. Alright, and so a lot of times the tribe would be named after an ancestor. Okay, so this

00:07:25--> 00:07:32

tribe of Abdullah case, they came to Medina to become Muslim.

00:07:33--> 00:08:21

This was a very small, humble Bedouin tribe. They're very simple people, but they were very respectable and honorable people. And Imam Bukhari Rahim, Allahu taala, along with all the books of the Sierra like him in his heart given kathina and others, they mentioned the narration about when Abdullah case became came to Medina and they embraced Islam, they became Muslim. First of all, it mentions that when they arrived in Medina, the profits a lot was very happy to see them. And the profits, a lot of them said to them Marhaba, Bill O'Meara Hosea, Valentina Dharma, welcome to the people that will not be ruined, and nor will they regret or lament anything, meaning the Prophet

00:08:21--> 00:08:34

salallahu alaihe salam complimented them, that they are very confident in their faith, and they are very excited to embrace Islam, and they will not regret this decision of becoming Muslim.

00:08:36--> 00:09:18

There are two things that I'd like to mention specifically about this tribe of Abdullah case coming and becoming Muslim. I mean, the the facts of it are very simple. This tribe came the leader of the tribe whose name was a shadow, a shadow Abdullah case. He was with them, they came, they became Muslim, and then they went home. Those are the facts. But there are two specific things in the interactions that I think we can learn something from. The first thing that I mentioned is, which is mentioned by all the scholars of the Sierra, in his heart Even concede, even a sham, they all mention it, but many of them had the throne. The scholars of Hadith have also mentioned these

00:09:18--> 00:09:21

narrations such as Mr. mahadi

00:09:22--> 00:09:59

Ahmed, Mr. malbay hottie they have all mentioned this as well. And what they've mentioned is that when the people of Advil case when they arrived in Medina to become Muslim, like I described previously, they were a simple people, they were better than people. And they were very excited to become Muslim. They had been looking forward to seeing the prophets a lot a Salaam for quite some time. The narration mentions that when one generation mentions that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he saw some people in the distance and they were writing really fast. The prophets

00:10:00--> 00:10:30

Allahu alayhi wa sallam said settlor amin, Hakuna Rocketboom Hadith, Mashallah, some people are coming there from that direction and they are some of the best people are Marathi Allahu taala. And who said, Well, if the prophets a lot of them are saying that these are such awesome people, I should maybe go and welcome them is tech bad, I should go and welcome them. So I'm about the Allahu taala on who went out of Medina to welcome these people. There were 13 people in the delegation.

00:10:31--> 00:10:46

And he asked them Who are you people? And they said, Men bunny are the nice. He then asked them for my academic bilad Why are you here? a tiara. Did you come to do business? They said no.

00:10:48--> 00:11:02

And then he said to them, that you should know that the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam alaikum and fanfic Allah Hydra the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said very nice things about you that you are good people.

00:11:03--> 00:11:18

So under the Allahu Allahu he says that when we got to Medina when we got to the masjid and they asked Where is the prophets allottee seminar pointed out the monster DS in there. He says that phenomenal old movie unfussy him Andrew cabbie him

00:11:20--> 00:12:02

from inhuman Masha woman, human harmala woman who Mansa ha Tato, rasilla, salatu salam, he said that some of them jumped off their animals or amobee, unfussy him minicabee him, some of them jumped off their animals while the animal was still moving. It's kind of like, think about how, you know kind of crazy that is, right? Think about jumping out of a moving car. Or if you're riding a bike, you just kind of jump off the bike and let the bike go and just crash. Right? And it sounds kind of crazy. But you have to also have to understand, and all of us can maybe at some level, internalize this. Imagine if you had the chance

00:12:03--> 00:12:08

that you know, sitting inside of that room is the profits a lot easier now.

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

I mean,

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

I probably run somebody over. Right, I wouldn't realize that my elbow would connect to someone's head, I wouldn't even realize it. Right? You don't just think about the excitement in that moment. We think about the first time you went for Hunter aamra. And you just wanted to go see the Kaaba, and you got your luggage. And they're telling you check into your room, put your luggage up, and then go to the cabin.

00:12:34--> 00:12:41

And you're waiting there and they're taking a little too long to give you the keys to your room. What happens? You're like, you know what?

00:12:42--> 00:13:12

Sharla this will be fine. Like, no people will take your stuff here. I don't care. I'm not waiting a minute more. I want to go see the karma. Right. So it's understandable their excitement, they get to see the profits a lot. So they started jumping off their animals and some of them are walking fast. The some of them were straight of hawala, some were running, racing. And they ran into the machine, they saw the profits of serum, and they just basically like pounced the process of selling

00:13:14--> 00:13:18

via de Vaca Bella, they grabbed the hand of the processor and they started kissing his end.

00:13:20--> 00:13:22

The leader of the tribe his name was

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

a church.

00:13:25--> 00:14:08

He came along and he saw all of his compatriots. He saw all of his friends jumping off moving animals, and the animals are just kind of wandering about in circles under bags are falling on the ground, and they're just running in. And a judge basically came up he got off of his camel, he tied up his camel. Then he chased down everybody else's camels, and then he tied up their camels as well. And then he opened up his bag and he looked at himself, we've been traveling through the desert for like four days. You can imagine how somebody looks and how they smell. And he's like, I don't want to meet the prophets a lot or something like this. So then he took out some nice clothes and

00:14:08--> 00:14:46

inventions, he had to wipe like clots, a lower garment, upper garment that were white. And so he took them out and he has to wear some water and they told him there's water over there and he went and he washed and cleaned himself up. And then he changed into nice clothes. And then he came and one of the narrations mentions that when these what was going on on the other side, these people ran in lB subprocessor grabbed his hand started kissing his hand. Yasuda, la Yasser Allah and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that, where are you from? Introduce yourselves properly. And so we're from Abdullah pace. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said man amido con men assume income who's in

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

charge amongst you and they said, Judge, the process have said, Well, where is he? Right third person reference. He is out there where where is he? Right. And they said that while he's out there, I think he's somebody said jasola

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

On the Sahaba I think we saw him he was tying up everyone's camel and taking care of everyone's belongings and things like that. The prophets a lot of them said, Have a seat, we will wait for him.

00:15:12--> 00:15:35

And then finally, when a judge came the process and welcomed him and made room for him right next to him, he says, Please have a seat here. And he sat down and he shook the hand of the profits a lot of the time and kids to process items and and then the profits a lot. He said him spoke to the people, and welcome to people and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at that time, he made the very famous comment that it's preserved within all the books of Hadith.

00:15:38--> 00:15:57

The prophets a lot he seldom said in figa hustle attain you, hey, boom, Allahu, you are a friend, you have two qualities, and God loves these qualities very, very much. They said, What are those two qualities jasola. And he said, Hey, move well or not?

00:15:59--> 00:16:43

Well, and add him in the Arabic in English is often translated as forbearance. what that actually means. Hillmer forbearance, what that means is, for someone to be able to see a bit further ahead, for someone to have, like some vision, and the patience to execute that vision that is hidden. It is part subpar. And it is part intelligence. It's like a combination of marriage of intelligence and patience, where you can see the long term, and then you have the patience to follow through with it. And that is the ability to remain calm under pressure.

00:16:45--> 00:16:52

And that is the ability to remain calm under pressure. And said you have these two qualities you're, you're very, very cool customer.

00:16:53--> 00:17:08

Very, very calm individual. And he said Allah subhanaw taala loves that and appreciates that about you. And so that was one thing I wanted to mention. These are the gems of profits, a lot of them would give when these people will come to visit. The second thing is

00:17:10--> 00:17:13

the people, they specifically

00:17:14--> 00:17:42

presented a question to the prophets a lot. And they said that we live further away. And in one narration, they specifically talk about that. There are sometimes certain conflicts with some of the tribes that lived between us and Medina. So it's not always possible for us to come and visit you or only visit you when they're not fighting particularly like during the sacred months or shoot

00:17:43--> 00:18:17

Asheville Herald were able to visit you during those times. So we can't come and see you as frequently as we would like. So yeah, this will Allah, they said for Hadith la be Juma liminal. ambry in amenda, behind the 100 Jana give us some comprehensive advice that we can act on if we're not able to come and see you and if we act on that advice, we will go to Paradise. Give us some good advice. The prophets a lot he said, um, he, you know, he, he obliged them in the prophets a lot he seldom said

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

Arbor in 100 come and Irvine. I will tell you to do four things that I will tell you to avoid four things. The four things are telling you to do. He said, he man obey law. Number one is believe in God.

00:18:34--> 00:19:06

And then he asked him 100 Runa Mal, Eamonn Bella, do you know what believing in Allah means? Shahada to Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah testified that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah and Mohammed is a messenger of Allah. And then he actually gave them five advices the first one he man, he almost kind of mentioned it as come into the religion come into the faith by accepting Islam. Then there are four things you should do after becoming a Muslim. The four things you should do are number one, it almost Salah

00:19:07--> 00:19:13

established a prayer. Number two, eat out Zakat give charity.

00:19:15--> 00:19:19

Right you do in Albania, what to do in Africa,

00:19:21--> 00:19:41

that wealth, a modicum of wealth, right, not all of wealth. a modicum of wealth should be taken from the wealthy and distributed amongst the poor. Number three was on Ramadan, fast in the month of Ramadan. This will develop that discipline within you.

00:19:42--> 00:20:00

Number four, we're on tour to Milan Milan minal mahana me Aloo masa. And number four is from the wealth that you might acquire as spoils of war, when there are wars or battles. one fifth of that 20%

00:20:00--> 00:20:23

That must also be given in charity. Okay, so this, this the advice that he gave them, and then he said that I tell you to abstain or refrain from four things. And what's very interesting is the four things he told them to avoid. All four things are associated with one another. He mentioned four things, a dooba, one athlete will hanten. Well, most effect.

00:20:25--> 00:20:38

And all four of these things are the names of different containers. Dubai is a container that was made out of a hollowed out squash, they will hollow out like a vegetable or a fruit that are hardshell.

00:20:39--> 00:21:15

And then they would do it, they would apply wax or grease inside of it and dry it out. And it would become a thermos, nothing was very similar, they would make it out of wood. hantam was also very similar, they would carve it out of something, and most of it is also the same, right? These are all names of four containers. Why did he tell them to avoid four containers, these four containers before Islam were primarily used for storing, transporting and consuming wine, alcohol, intoxicants.

00:21:16--> 00:21:40

And so what the prophets a lot Leeson was telling them is that a part of Islam, obviously, they were going to read the Quran or part of Islam is you have to give a wine, you have to give up alcohol. But the thing about giving up alcohol, especially if it's well ingrained within a person or their lifestyle, or in their culture in their society, is that it's not that easy to give up something like that.

00:21:41--> 00:21:56

And so what you're going to have to do is you're going to have to take extra precautionary measures. And even the containers, the thermos is the flasks that you use to use for alcohol. Don't even you throw away those flasks as well.

00:21:58--> 00:22:05

Right? There's a time and a place for fruitfulness, right? Well, it's a perfectly good container, we can use it for water.

00:22:06--> 00:22:12

Practice your frugality elsewhere. Right now what you need to understand as this container

00:22:13--> 00:22:35

is representative symbolic of a previous sinful lifestyle. Don't indulge in it, distance yourself from it. And so that was the advice and in fact, this is very in line with what the Quran says. The Quran commences in sudeley Surah Surah number 17. While our Takara boo, Xena,

00:22:37--> 00:22:46

Xena fornication, Allah subhanaw taala says don't do not even go near fornication, stay completely away from it.

00:22:47--> 00:22:49

Don't even go to the place where it occurs.

00:22:50--> 00:22:55

don't associate with the people that may be were a part of that sinful lifestyle.

00:22:56--> 00:23:18

And so this is the Quranic advice in the prophetic advice of how you remove sins from your lifestyle, that you have to decide to just give up it and everything around it. Alright. So this is essentially in essence, the interaction of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam with the people of the face.

00:23:20--> 00:23:30

The last thing the last two small details that I'll mention here is number one, the first Juma prayer

00:23:32--> 00:24:13

that was ever established, outside of the city of Medina, was established for the people of Abdullah case. It was established for them because they live so far away, and the whole tribe accepted Islam, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and they had some knowledgeable people amongst them the process of send some Sahaba there and he told them establish the Juma prayer for yourselves. All right, because up until that point, Missouri never we used to have July. There were a couple of other machines nearby like the machine ovenu salema. The people who lived on the outskirts of Medina, they used to pray fudger and Isha on their own in their little Masjid because they were so far out from Medina.

00:24:14--> 00:24:54

Another machine was a machine of Koba the suburb of Medina, they used to pray there five times a day. But those two places were close enough that for Juma for Friday prayer, they still use to come to miserably. Of course, if you could walk an extra 30 minutes but pray behind the processor Wouldn't you rather do that? Right. So they used to come play with the profits a lot of the some imaginably but these people were the first people that were given the license to perform Juma prayer in their town. And so this was the first satellite Joomla outside of Medina that was established. The second thing I wanted to mention here that is very interesting. In the Sahara of human Bukhari,

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

omo Salah Marathi Allahu taala on her, she said mentioned something very interesting

00:25:00--> 00:25:14

She says that the P this delegation of Abdullah case they arrived in Medina when they ran into Moshe they arrived in Medina. Right as soon as we were finishing the door prayer,

00:25:15--> 00:25:37

the province allottee some sets and how are they going after last hour they can after he finished a thorough prayer. And these people walked in the profits a lot he said I'm happy to have it is sooner was he would always pray to Santa to record rakatan after the war, he would always pray to sinners after dorial consistently

00:25:38--> 00:25:59

right he used to pray these two love of Allah and Avi salatu salam. However, when these people came, now what do you do? Right? conventional logic, right, would dictate that. You will tell these people, why don't you wait, I'm going to pray to the gods and then we'll talk.

00:26:00--> 00:26:20

But almost Santa Maria Allahu Allah. Allah says ahora Raka Geneva. VO of the Abdullah case. The prophets Luddism did not pray those to the gods when he normally would after the door, but rather he entertained his guests. He entertained them and he prayed the to the gods later,

00:26:21--> 00:26:36

after he had settled them in and told them you don't make lunch, you go and take some rest and things like that, then he prayed is no often. And that's just a very powerful reminder of that there is the issue of prioritization within our religion.

00:26:37--> 00:26:51

There is the issue of priority within our religion, how do we prioritize things that are ibadah is extremely important. But in a bother there are for eight and there are no often

00:26:53--> 00:27:17

there are things that are mandatory, we don't compromise those. And then there are optional deeds, and those are very important, those are very good. We should be motivated to do those things. But then there is the a flop in the character of Islam. And there are other obligations, family, the rights of family upon you, the rights of your neighbors upon you,

00:27:18--> 00:27:35

the hospitality of a guest. These are very centrally important things when it comes to the character of Islam and Muslims. And those things should not be overlooked. Those things should not be put aside. In fact, if it comes down to choosing between optional worship,

00:27:37--> 00:28:01

and the character, these types of things, right, entertaining your guests, tending to family members, whatever the case may be, then the clock in the character, the mandates of a clock and character take preference and precedence over optional worship. There's another narration along the same lines from the life in the process of that is fascinating.

00:28:03--> 00:28:18

Baraka, Ayman Baraka is one of the women who raised the prophets a lot. So since he was a child, she raised him, he used to refer to her as his mother. He had a lot of love for her.

00:28:20--> 00:28:35

And it mentioned that even towards the end of the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he used to go they would see each other quite often in the masjid and things like that. But he specifically once a week, used to go and visit her in her home,

00:28:36--> 00:28:39

used to go visit her at her home, at least once a week.

00:28:41--> 00:28:44

And sometimes when he would go and you know how mothers are.

00:28:45--> 00:28:51

It didn't matter how old the profits all of a sudden was, when he would go to visit her, she would make food for him.

00:28:53--> 00:29:08

And sometimes when he would go and she would make food and she would put the food down. He would say I am fasting in the saw him I am fasting. And then eration mentioned that a man would look at the profits a lot him and she would say no, you're not

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

law. Just know. I don't accept it.

00:29:16--> 00:29:21

And the prophets, a lot of them would laugh. And he would say Bismillah and he would eat her food.

00:29:22--> 00:29:28

You would leave the fast because it was optional. It wasn't Ramadan. It was optional.

00:29:29--> 00:29:33

Here's a woman that's like your mother. She raised you since you were a little boy.

00:29:34--> 00:29:37

She loved you like our own she raised you as one of her own.

00:29:40--> 00:29:54

And she doesn't want to hear I'm fasting. She made food for you Even though she's so old and older lychee made food and the profits are lovely son taught us through His character, his beautiful noble character, what Nicola Allah who can mean

00:29:56--> 00:29:58

that you don't hurt her feelings.

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

A small amount

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

thing isn't maybe.

00:30:02--> 00:30:04

But you don't do that you don't say no to her.

00:30:05--> 00:30:07

You leave your optional fast, but you take care of her.

00:30:09--> 00:30:24

And here's similarly we see these are guests who have arrived in Medina, the prophets allottee. Some said, I can pray my nephew, and it's not followed further was already done. I can pray for my nephew later. But these are guests, they came, they rode for days through the desert

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

to meet me.

00:30:28--> 00:30:33

And when they finally get here, and they're so excited, they're jumping off of moving animals.

00:30:34--> 00:30:53

I'm gonna be like, stop, sit quietly, when I'm done, I'll call you. That's not what you do. And again, that's what we learned from setting the life of the prophets allottees. That's why it's so important for us to study the life of the processor. Actually, it's such a valuable and essential

00:30:55--> 00:31:21

exercise very honestly. It's learning but it's also like this spiritual exercise challenges us intellectually and emotionally and most importantly, spiritually, to elevate ourselves to be better. Right, sweat and Hazara. That's why the Prophet Solomon was called the ultimate role model, because we can find an example in a role model in him.

00:31:24--> 00:31:30

The next incident that I wanted to share here and talk about

00:31:32--> 00:31:37

is a little bit of a more complicated issue.

00:31:40--> 00:31:46

There are two parts to this particular story. The first one is,

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

once again,

00:31:52--> 00:32:38

remember how it even gets even is how many I've mentioned this particular story. This story that I'm about to mention actually happens earlier. It happened about a year, year and a half ago from where we are in the timeline. It did not happen in my ninth year. It actually happened the earlier part of the eighth year. It did not happen in the ninth year, it happened in the earlier part of the eighth year. But I mentioning it here for a reason. Because there's a story about a man who was brought to Medina and he became Muslim. That's the essence of the story. But I'll tell you some detail about it's very beautiful. But the reason why I'm mentioning it here in the ninth year is because later on

00:32:38--> 00:32:54

what would happen he became Muslim in the beginning of the eighth year, early eighth year. He then went back to his people, and many of his people became interested in becoming Muslim. And then his tribe came in the ninth year to become Muslim. So that's why I'm mentioning it together.

00:32:55--> 00:32:59

The name of the person is through mama is me through Mama.

00:33:01--> 00:33:20

Abu huraira Allahu taala narrates that the prophets a lot of them had sent a group of Sahaba like a cavalry to the north. When they went to the north, they came across a man who belonged to a tribe called bunu hanifa Bhanu hanifa.

00:33:21--> 00:33:26

They demand seemed like he was a bit confrontational, something like that they ended up capturing the man.

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

They came back to Medina and they brought him to Medina.

00:33:31--> 00:33:58

Now what they did was Medina didn't have a prison did not have a jail cell, nothing like that. Right, which is something to think about. But that's a different topic for another day. It's a very complicated issue, but something to think about. But Dina did not have a single cell prison, jail, nothing. Anyways, what they would do with people sometimes when they needed to be, you know, restrained, they would tie them to a pillar in the machine.

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

So they brought this man to mama, and they tied him to a pillar of the machine. When the prophets a lot of them saw him. He said, Man in the chaos Mama,

00:34:10--> 00:34:37

what do we do with you? What should we do with you? And kind of jokingly kind of said, What do you have to offer? He's tied up to a pillar, right? What does he have to offer? But he just kind of jokingly, like, what should we do with you? And so the man said, are in the hadal, near Muhammad, I have a lot to offer. He said inducted me ductile that I mean, if you kill me, if you decide to execute me, then you are executing someone who's people will want

00:34:39--> 00:34:40

retribution.

00:34:41--> 00:34:44

They will want retribution. All right.

00:34:45--> 00:34:47

But he said we're in

00:34:49--> 00:34:52

between but if you show kindness to me,

00:34:53--> 00:34:56

you will have somebody who owes you something.

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

You are showing kindness as someone who will not forget

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

Kindness Alessia Cara. We're in quantity reedman facilement hamartia. If all you want is money though,

00:35:08--> 00:35:50

then asked me, How much do you want? How much money would you like? The profits a lot. He said, I'm just kind of smiled at him. I said, I'm gonna let you think about this conversation. He just walked away. The next day, the profits, a lot of them said, and again, when they tied them to the pillar, that doesn't mean they just left him standing hungry and thirsty would like sit him down. And in fact, the people who were prisoners in Medina, they would oftentimes say that they used to feed us dates and bread. They used to feed us dates and meat, excuse me, dates and meat. I keep on getting confused. They would feed us bread and meat hubs.

00:35:51--> 00:35:57

They would feed us bread and meat. And they themselves used to live off of Tamar wama.

00:35:59--> 00:36:06

They would they themselves used to live off of dates, and they would give us bread and meat. They would drink water and they would give us milk.

00:36:07--> 00:36:20

So he was taken care of the next day, the prophets, a lot of them came to him again and he said, Miranda, Katherine Mama. All right, let's try this again. What do you have to offer Oh to mama.

00:36:21--> 00:36:26

And again, he gave the same response the prophets a lot. He sort of smiled at him. He walked away.

00:36:28--> 00:36:49

He came in the third day bobblehead. And again, yes, in Myanmar in the Casa mama and he said in the map on to LA. And now the sun. He didn't go into all the detail. He goes Look, I've already told you what I have. I don't really you don't want to go through all of it again. The prophets A lot of times, okay. Look, look Osama and Taya. Go

00:36:50--> 00:36:54

to some time. You're free. You can walk right now.

00:36:56--> 00:37:04

Through Mama rhodiola Coachella and Whoa, spoiler alert. He says Fanta La Ilaha Illa Caribbean mill machine Ilana

00:37:05--> 00:37:30

de la medalla machine. He went out to where there was kind of some date palms like an orchard and he went there you know they would they would they would do is when they needed to bathe or something. They would go where there was an orchard they would tie like a sheet between two trees. And he took a shower he washed and cleanse himself put on a clean pair of clothes. And then he came back into the masjid sat down in front of the prophets a lot. He said, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:37:31--> 00:37:42

Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, he became Muslim on the spot. And then he said something so profound. He said gamma Mohammed, we're lucky Makana Allah what are the word Yun abacha de la immunologic?

00:37:44--> 00:37:52

For the asthma? How would you hook up Elijah? He said, I swear to God and Muhammad, there was nobody I disliked more than I used to dislike you.

00:37:53--> 00:38:14

But now there's nobody I admire and respect and love as much as I respect and love you. And then he said there was no D no religion that I found distasteful more than the religion that you teach. Now I recognize and realize after my couple of days in Medina, there's no religion that I've seen that is more beautiful than yours religion.

00:38:15--> 00:38:17

And then he said that your city

00:38:19--> 00:38:24

was the last place that I ever wanted to visit. And now I don't want to leave your city.

00:38:26--> 00:38:47

And then he told the prophets a lot. He said, here's my issue. We're in the Haleakala Tijuana region ombre when your people snatched me when they arrested me, I was actually going for Umrah but it was like the number of you know before Islam, the Jackie Lee the [???] karma, but I was going for ombre.

00:38:48--> 00:39:06

So the prophet SAW so he said, What should I do now for mother Tara, what am I supposed to do? The Prophet sallahu Sallam told him, you know, you know, martial law, it's very good to hear that you're a Muslim and that that's how you feel. You should go do your own Ra. So he went to Makkah, and when he went there to go do our own RA,

00:39:07--> 00:39:15

someone kind of noticed, you know, the way he was doing things and maybe got into a conversation are realized and realize that he had become Muslim.

00:39:16--> 00:39:59

So someone told him sobotta you left the religion of your forefathers. you've joined Muhammad in his band. And so he said lacking Islam tomorrow, Muhammad? He said, No, I have not abandoned the religion of my forefathers. I've been joined Mohammed's gang. I became Muslim. I have submitted to God in the way Muhammad has shown us showed us and then he said, We're lucky. Like Chico Minal Yama Madhava to hang out in Hata Yaga Vienna visa, sir. You want to know what happens when you get in my face. He says that a lot of the wheat, the flour, the wheat that used to come to MCI use

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

come from Yo Mama, where this man for Mama was from. He said, I swear to God, not a single grain of wheat will be delivered to Makkah anymore until Mohammed says it's okay.

00:40:12--> 00:40:13

Nevertheless,

00:40:14--> 00:40:23

as I mentioned, through mama became a Muslim, he goes back to yamamah, where he's from, all right. And when he gets back there,

00:40:25--> 00:40:27

about a year or so year, year and a half goes by,

00:40:29--> 00:40:34

and he convinces many people in his tribe, but no hanifa to become Muslim.

00:40:36--> 00:40:44

And then he motivates them to form a delegation a caravan. Let's go to Medina. And let's meet the prophets a lot.

00:40:45--> 00:40:48

So they get ready and they say, Okay, that sounds good.

00:40:49--> 00:40:53

They arrive there. The people become Muslim.

00:40:55--> 00:40:57

When they arrived there,

00:40:58--> 00:41:04

the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. When they first arrive, the prophets a lot, he sort of asks them.

00:41:06--> 00:41:07

Is there anyone else?

00:41:09--> 00:41:25

Is there anyone else? And they say, Yeah, actually, we drew lots about like, who would have to stay back with the camels and the animals and things like that, and watch our stuff. And so one of us is back there watching all of the stuff.

00:41:26--> 00:41:50

In the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, well, you should invite him in. Somebody else should go and switch off with him. He says, I'm out in the hallway. So beshara kumbhakarna. I'm pretty sure he's not a terrible guy, that you can bring him into mustard. Like he's some terrible human being where you wouldn't invite him into the machine where I wouldn't want to meet him. You somebody else could switch off and invite the guy in.

00:41:52--> 00:41:53

So they do that.

00:41:54--> 00:41:56

And they basically invite the guy in

00:41:58--> 00:42:01

this guy, his name is Mozilla.

00:42:02--> 00:42:05

His name is Mozilla bin Habib.

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

Okay. He's from the tribe of yamamah.

00:42:12--> 00:42:20

He has not really said anything, you know, peculiar up to this particular point.

00:42:21--> 00:42:23

He comes into the masjid.

00:42:24--> 00:42:27

He sees the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:42:28--> 00:43:09

with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is one of his companions by the name of Sabbath in a case in Seamus, who was known as hottie bourassa lai sala de ser, he was kind of like the prophets a lot of asylums, you know, for lack of a better kind of example, almost like a press secretary for the profits a lot easier. The process was not a pretentious person, if you wanted to find him just going to the machine. He's just sitting there. But the what the reason why the profits a lot of him kind of needed an official spokesperson was there were delegations that were arriving every few days. So you almost needed someone who was appointed by the processor to receive people if the

00:43:09--> 00:43:14

processor was not there. For instance, if a delegation arrived at night, he's already home

00:43:15--> 00:43:47

so there needed to be somebody who could officially go and receive them as a representative of the profits a lot is that the profits a lot so we'll be with you and about in shortly till then I am appointed to welcome you right and that person with fab had been placement Seamus is the hobby. The profits a lovely song was with with this companion Sabbath is assistant and this man will say lemma he comes into the machine. The prophets a lot. He was such a common person sitting on the ground.

00:43:48--> 00:43:53

And the prophets a lot of a sudden was holding like a little like a twig

00:43:54--> 00:44:29

like a little stick like a branch of a tree. You're just kind of holding it just, you know, sitting with it kind of fiddling with it. A common person, the process of sometimes when he would draw things in the sand he would do it with like a twig or something. So you just have a twig. You just kind of fiddling with it. And when this man will say llama comes in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he in you know tells him that you know your people have come and become Muslim and so I wanted you to kind of get the chance to sit and you know, also have a conversation about Islam and human.

00:44:30--> 00:44:35

And he says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:44:36--> 00:44:37

that

00:44:38--> 00:44:41

I have an offer for you.

00:44:43--> 00:44:50

He says that the prophets a lot he said, the thing that has come to you, has also come to me.

00:44:52--> 00:45:00

The thing that has come to you in the other day to Phil Emery Mark I God has

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

also spoken to me.

00:45:02--> 00:45:10

I have also been given Prophethood along with you, right? Hmm. Yeah. You know, when somebody tries to do that.

00:45:12--> 00:45:14

And the prophets Luddism says what?

00:45:16--> 00:45:25

And he says that, okay, okay, how about this? Like, like this has already been agreed to of course, he's a con artist. He says, okay, okay. Okay, how about this?

00:45:27--> 00:45:31

I will follow you. Right now you be in charge.

00:45:32--> 00:45:51

You seem elderly. You seem like you're getting older into the process. I was like, 62 years old. You seem like you're getting older. So you're in charge right now. You'd be in charge amongst the two of us right now. You'd be in charge. I'll follow you. Then when you die, then I'll take over. Make sense. Right, right.

00:45:53--> 00:46:05

The profits allottee sounds like what is this strange creature? Right. Where did this guy come from? The profits are lovely. Some says Los Altos De La, La La takahara

00:46:06--> 00:46:14

los altos de haut de los altos de la otra. Taka, he said, if you were to ask me for this twig,

00:46:15--> 00:46:17

I would not give it to you.

00:46:18--> 00:46:21

You talk about Prophethood you talk about the lava.

00:46:22--> 00:46:23

Are you crazy?

00:46:25--> 00:46:28

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:46:29--> 00:46:31

He tells him that No,

00:46:32--> 00:46:35

we're not. That is not up for discussion.

00:46:37--> 00:46:54

The man he gets quiet and they leave the people they leave there. When he arrives back at home where they live. Yeah, Mama. He restarts this entire situation.

00:46:55--> 00:47:08

And what he basically does is he starts up this whole campaign of how he's a prophet. He starts making a fig verses of the Quran, like starts trying to copy the Quran and makeup faith verses.

00:47:09--> 00:47:15

He starts claiming Prophethood starts calling himself a prophet. He assumes the name of a man

00:47:17--> 00:47:19

which shows you how Jilin ignorant he is.

00:47:20--> 00:47:57

He assumes a Nima Rama and then he called him people who unfortunately simple people start to believe in Him, they start calling him a harmonica Mama, there's Mohammed in Medina, and there's ramen in your mama. And he starts calling himself a prophet. And he starts developing a little bit of a following. It's not much at first, It's said to be about 70 some odd people, he develops a little bit of a following. He leaves the banana for the tribe that he's actually from and on the outskirts of the tribe. He establishes a little camp for himself, and he starts up a little group over there.

00:47:58--> 00:48:01

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:48:03--> 00:48:12

He, the end just to kind of kind of follow through with the, you know, where it eventually goes.

00:48:13--> 00:48:20

Eventually, what happens is that he has a right hand man, who he calls his more than

00:48:21--> 00:48:27

he's got an assistant who he calls his oven. And that will then also starts to claim Prophethood.

00:48:29--> 00:48:43

And he becomes kind of like an assistant prophet to this fake Prophet, fake assistant prophet to this fake Prophet, right? Assistant to the fake Prophet, not assistant fake Prophet, right. And then there's another woman

00:48:44--> 00:48:55

amongst his followers, who also starts to say, I'm having dreams and visions, and I know the future, and she starts talking crazy. And he goes, this is perfect, we should marry each other. And then he marries her.

00:48:57--> 00:49:02

You know, fantastic, right, but ultimately, ultimately, what happens.

00:49:03--> 00:49:46

And so I'll get to this point in just a moment. He eventually sends a follow up letter to the prophets, audition, you know, that offer he made in person and the prophets, a lot of them just assumed he's probably mentally not stable and just kind of waved him off, brushed him off. But then he goes there and he develops a little following of like, 7080 people, and then marries this, you know, other false prophet, and he's got an another assistant, fake false prophet and all of this. And so he's kind of whatever. He sends a follow up letter to the prophets a lot. Hmm. And he sends two of his followers with the letter. And the letter says, Minh moose ala rasulillah. He Illa

00:49:46--> 00:49:47

Muhammad Rasulullah.

00:49:48--> 00:49:59

from Mozilla, the Messenger of God to Muhammad the Messenger of God, messenger of God, messenger God, Hmm, yeah. Right. He's still like, you know, doing this thing and then he says,

00:50:00--> 00:50:06

Salam Alaikum peace be unto you on my body for any other oshri to Phil Emery Maxine line.

00:50:08--> 00:50:10

You and I, we share the same thing

00:50:12--> 00:50:13

for in melanin this fall

00:50:14--> 00:50:21

is genius. So he goes so then half of profit motive is for you half of prophethood is for me.

00:50:22--> 00:50:39

And apparently his wife and his assistant, and he says when you call a nice phone number, so he says that basically your people Quraysh You know, when you die, I should take over half and your people should take over half we should split up the Islamic Kingdom

00:50:40--> 00:50:48

bases. Well I can operation on manyata Dune, but operation, they're not good people. So I'm going to have to take over all of it.

00:50:50--> 00:51:06

So this was the letter to men brought the letter. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked the two of them that and this letter, by the way came at the end of the 10th year so it came a year later.

00:51:08--> 00:51:21

I've delivered Masuda the Allahu taala and who says that the prophets a lot of them, ask them at this hedonic angira rasulillah What do you believe? Do you believe that I'm the Messenger of Allah, they said, national animal Salah Mara Solano, we believe in Allah.

00:51:22--> 00:51:50

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, are meant to be like you were also he? He says, I believe in a lion, the true messengers of God. And he said, welcome to Part 11 rasulillah cartel chikuma had it been permissible to execute messengers, you too would be the first to write but we don't do that. And that's why Abdullah bin was rude or the Allahu talana says from Agata Suna from a lot sooner to be another Rasul Allah token.

00:51:51--> 00:52:20

That is where we learn the law, the prophetic law the prophetic injunction, that messengers no matter how well how offensive of a message, a courier a messenger may bring not messengers of a lover like a messenger from a king, or an opposing party or an opposing ruler. No matter how offensive the message may be. We do not kill messengers. We don't do that. It's against the instruction of the processor, because the President did not harm these two men. He said okay.

00:52:22--> 00:52:39

I got the letter, and then the profits a lady some sent a letter back with them. And the letter was very simple. It said Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, a stupid guy who say them I forgot to write Bismillah right so Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem min Muhammad Rasulullah he Illa masala Metelkova

00:52:40--> 00:52:43

the prophets allottee some had dictated the letter.

00:52:44--> 00:53:23

Usually it was Alia or the Allahu talanoa that he dictated to and it said from Mohammed the Messenger of God to masala muda liar Salaam when Allah Amanita alhuda pieces upon whoever follows the true guidance. I'm about to find out the Lila UD so humming a chatroom, and everybody here will occupy clean water clean. He quoted the Quran, Allah the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, you want to negotiate who's going to be in charge, this earth belongs to God, not to me, I am not going to give it to anybody. This earth belongs to God and God will put in charge of it whomsoever God wants. What you need to worry about is the life of the hereafter. Because in the life of the Hereafter, only

00:53:23--> 00:53:27

those people will prosper who were conscious of Allah in this life

00:53:28--> 00:53:38

and death letter, and the process of sent this back with them. So this is kind of the story of this tribe, but no hanifa who became Muslim.

00:53:39--> 00:53:51

But unfortunately, this really strange and eventually deranged, individual Mozilla, False Prophet came along with them.

00:53:52--> 00:54:02

And ultimately, I won't get into the details of, you know, what happens to mozila. But essentially what occurs is during the

00:54:03--> 00:54:09

Battle of yamamah, right during the time of what kind of Siddiq radi Allahu taala and who

00:54:10--> 00:54:55

there's eventually a war will save them up because of the the passing of the profits a lot of them. Unfortunately, some people get confused, and they will say Anima ends up getting a few hundreds of followers and eventually they start raising an army and want to launch an attack against Medina. So Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala, who gets an army of the Sahaba together and they decide to go in, put out this fitna and to meet this army. The battle ensues, the battle occurs. And what's very interesting is that washy the men who had who had killed assassinated the uncle of the prophets a lot in terms of the uncle of the prophets a lot a Salim Hamza radi Allahu Jalan who who is very

00:54:55--> 00:55:00

beloved to the prophets a lot a solemn before he was Muslim he had killed himself

00:55:00--> 00:55:15

He said he came out of Route he had become Muslim since then. And he had kind of retired. He lived in obscurity. And he said, I came out of retirement and went back into the battlefield because I said, I killed the best person.

00:55:16--> 00:55:53
