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

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah, who Allah Allah, he was happy to be here Ah, Marie, inshallah, continuing with our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a sirata number, we are the prophetic biography.

00:01:02--> 00:01:13

We started discussing in the previous session, we started talking about the 10th, year of higit, on the 10th year of the prophets, a lot of the Psalms, residents in the city of Medina.

00:01:15--> 00:01:32

And what we talked about previously was the fact that the region of Yemen, which of course, very tragically, and, unfortunately, has been in the news a lot lately, because of the tragedy that is currently unfolding within Yemen.

00:01:34--> 00:01:56

It is, you know, unfortunately, once again, very tragically, like a lot of the tragedies that we witness, it is, by the doing of you know, people's actions, the horrible facade of his body will barely be maca, potato Enos. This is the chaos and the corruption that human beings wreak upon the earth.

00:01:57--> 00:02:09

And so it's a terrible, terrible tragedy that's going on and SubhanAllah. When you look back in history, even prior to the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:02:10--> 00:02:25

you see that the region, the place of Yemen, has always been a place that has undergone a lot of suffering. And these are people who have been tested by a law in so many different ways. But what's beautiful and remarkable about them

00:02:26--> 00:02:30

is that through all these tests and trials, they

00:02:31--> 00:02:49

have always remained the people who are primarily identified by their faith, by their commitment to knowing their religion and spirituality. They are people who are known that are people of great character.

00:02:50--> 00:03:02

They have an exemplary disposition and demeanor. They're very hospitable. Someone told that the prophets a lovely sentiment complimented them

00:03:03--> 00:03:27

by identifying three traits about them. In one singular narration, he mentioned two things. He says the amount of money will take my money. Yeah, that faith is a trait and a characteristic of the Yemeni people. And wisdom is a quality of the Yemeni people. And in another narration, he said that they are humble people, very humble people.

00:03:29--> 00:03:32

And so we pray that Allah subhanaw taala alleviate your suffering.

00:03:33--> 00:04:01

However, we talked about the region of Yemen coming into the fold of Islam and the prophets, a lot of these some sent his very young, dynamic student and mentee more I've been Jebel radi Allahu Allahu to Yemen, to preach their teach there and also create a system of governance, implement a system of governance and, you know, help them kind of organize their lives under their new newly embraced faith and religion of Islam.

00:04:03--> 00:04:45

Today, we're actually going to continue to talk about Yemen, but in light of a different individual. Today what we're going to talk about is the fact that the prophets a lot, he said, I'm prior to the Hajj, the farewell pilgrimage. Hagit without the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent Ali ibn Abi Talib to Yemen as well, which really tells you he first sent Khalid bin Walid. So first he said more Ottoman Jamal, then he sent Khalid bin Walid, then you send the Alabama dollar. This is the cream of the crop, the brightest of the bright, the profits, a lot of them sent his best and brightest. And so that goes back to that same idea of what we were talking about the profits, a lot of them had this

00:04:45--> 00:04:52

succession plan. He had trained these people prepared these people to carry on the work and the message after he was gone.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

So in the narration of Albert arrivano Asad narrated by Muhammad Yunus

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

Musleh D says that the prophets lobbyism sent a group of us with hollyburn worried now what was already there when juggler was already there implementing, you know, kind of governmental structure and teaching people their religion and this new way of life for them. He said Khalid bin walidah the Allahu Allahu because there was some news that he had read that that he had received, that there were certain areas in Yemen where there were people who were gathering together to basically confront and fight the Muslims. So he sent Khalid bin walidah, the Allahu talana with a small force a small battalion to go in to deal with this potential threat.

00:05:42--> 00:06:32

And after Khalid or the Allahu taala on who Khalid bin Walid he went there, and he basically assess the situation and all in all, it was a very, you know, good and calm and stable situation. He then sent, Alia the Allahu taala Ando sama battalion badali kumbhakarna, who he sent it, and he said, You go there to Yemen morozova Khalid mansha, amin home and you Aki bamaca. For you, a woman shot a foul you have been that you tell the people who went in the small battalion of Khalid, those of them who want to stay with you there to assist you. They may do so. And those who want to come back with Khalid Medina, they can come back to Khalid they can come back to Medina along with Khalid but I

00:06:32--> 00:06:36

need Khalid back here and I want you to go and you know handle things over there.

00:06:38--> 00:06:41

So this is where now it gets a little bit interesting.

00:06:43--> 00:07:09

Allah The Allahu Jalan who went there, he spent a little bit of time there he did what he was told by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to do their teach people make any judgments that needed to be made, kind of make sure that the will of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam kind of the the, the wishes of the prophets, a lot of them were being fulfilled, that he was basically carrying out the agenda of the prophet to lobby seldom there in Yemen.

00:07:10--> 00:07:59

And once he was able to assure that he said, ensure that and after that, I want you to meet me at hospital without I want you to come and do the farewell pilgrimage with me. And that's exactly what I needed, the Allahu telefonu did. However, there are a few interesting things that ended up occurring with alira, the Allahu talanoa that I found very fascinating. First of all, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of the biggest components of Islam. One of the biggest aspects or components, teachings of Islam, is the element of honesty, integrity, ethics, ethics are extremely an extremely important part of the religion somewhat so that in also in the realm of like, the

00:07:59--> 00:08:37

principles of Islamic jurisprudence, we talk about this, that when it comes to legal rulings, they have the ability to be flexible and malleable. Legal rulings have a certain amount of, you know, flexibility to them. They have a certain amount of flexibility and versatility, and they change from time to time place to place. When it comes to ethics, though, ethics are one of those things that are considered part of the universals. They were always airing the teachings of all the prophets of the past and the Koran lays down the ethics, the prophets, a lot even talks about ethics, and ethics. A lot of times in books have also they're called a clock out and things like that. It's not

00:08:37--> 00:09:04

just about good manners, it's the ethics of the religion. And that's why the the most expert and most knowledgeable of our scholars, whether they be scholars of fic, and arcada, and philosophy, they would be emphasis, they would talk extensively about the ethics of the religion. So ethics are extremely important. And it's an important part of the Quran. It's an important part of the teachings and the process that I'm in. It's important in Islam.

00:09:05--> 00:09:31

The prophets a lot, so never compromises ethics for anything. He was extremely gracious, very lenient, very accommodating, but he would not compromise the ethics. So much so that one time he saw a man, there were some, you know, money of sadaqa charity being gathered together. And he was walking with his grandson hasn't radi Allahu anhu and he was a child.

00:09:32--> 00:10:00

And while he was walking with Him, you know, the child saw that there was like a little barrel of dates. And he saw that and just like a child does a child walks by some fruit, some candy when they grab one. So he sees that barrel of dates, bucket of dates and he reaches in and he grabs one, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam took it out of his hand and he put it back and he said, No, that is charity. We the family of Muhammad, we are not allowed to eat from charity.

00:10:00--> 00:10:14

Even though he's a child, there's no legal culpability. There's no liability for a child. In the terminology of the religion, we call that the cliff McCallum if a child does not work enough, he's not obligated to abide by the,

00:10:15--> 00:10:54

the rules the structure of the religion as a child. But he still would not compromise ethics. He saw another time there were the spoils of war. They had just got done with a battle and the things were gathered in the area. So they were the spoils of war. And they had not been distributed yet. And he saw that one of the companions when the people, he went over there, and he saw like, he saw a bow, you know, like a bow and arrow. So he saw that there was a really nice bow in the heap. And he picked it up and he was trying to get in, you know, when you're not using the bow, they said, they were kind of over their shoulder. So he got to put it on to see if it would fit him and how it

00:10:54--> 00:11:01

looked on him. And he was just kind of trying it on. He didn't take it. The profits, a lot of them said does it feel good to wear fire around your shoulder?

00:11:02--> 00:11:34

Because he basically said that that doesn't belong to you, and hasn't been distributed yet. The profits or losses he was he was so kind and generous. We see so many narrations where he's so forgiving and kind, but when it came to the ethics of the issue, the prophet system will not compromise ethics. Our leader, the Allahu taala. No, he taught me to do the same do not compromise the ethics and the Allahu terrano. In his personality. He was an extremely intelligent person, super sharp, extremely intelligent.

00:11:35--> 00:11:47

And he was a man of great piety. He was an ascetic, he would eat simple, were simple, lifts simple. He slept on the ground, ate a couple of dates, walked on his feet wherever he went.

00:11:48--> 00:12:05

He was a very humble man, a very pious man used to fast and pray, read the Koran, hours and hours every day. Who's a remarkable person, I'll even be talking about the Allahu Tanana. But the thing about him was, he had a certain kind of edge to him.

00:12:06--> 00:12:35

He wasn't necessarily a harsh person, but when it came to ethics, he was very uncompromising. He was very uncompromising when it came to ethics, because he was raised by the prophets allottees. And he inherited that he learned that from the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, one fascinating thing when he goes there to Yemen, one of the things that happens there's actually two things. There are two incidents that are mentioned number one,

00:12:36--> 00:12:48

some of the people that had traveled from Medina and had come to them and as part of the group, they had camels that they had written to Yemen, they had their animals or camels.

00:12:50--> 00:12:56

Obviously, the trip was very long, it was very arduous. So they said, Our camels have gotten really worn out on the trip.

00:12:57--> 00:13:15

There were some camels that had been gathered there within Yemen, they, you know, they have been gathered as part of the beta Nile, the public fund, people had donated camels. So some of these people that came from Medina, they said, you know, our camels have undergone this long journey, they've gotten really worn out and this and that,

00:13:17--> 00:13:27

would it? Why don't we just swap them out? We'll put our camels into the public fund that will take these camels there, their younger, fresher animals will take them.

00:13:28--> 00:13:45

And our leader, the Allahu taala, who said absolutely not. And he said, No, absolutely not. I will not allow you to do that. That will not happen on my watch. And he absolutely refused to allow them to do this.

00:13:46--> 00:13:56

This is one incident that occurred. A second incident that occurred with the Allahu talana, when he ended up going there to Yemen was that

00:13:57--> 00:14:07

when he arrived there in Yemen, he went to go kind of visit another region, another place another tribe.

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

When he came back to the base of operations where he was operating from

00:14:16--> 00:14:32

one of the locals who was a very wealthy person, he had basically gifted very, like luxurious garments, like almost like royal like robes that look like they belong to like the royal family.

00:14:33--> 00:14:38

So we get so one of the locals, I guess, trying to maybe some, you know, win some favor

00:14:39--> 00:14:47

with these people, knowing that they were close to the leadership. He had gifted them these very fancy robes.

00:14:48--> 00:14:55

When I looked at the Allahu taala who came back and he saw them wearing all these fancy robes.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

He said to them marhaba What is this

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

What are you guys wearing? Where did you get this? They said kasana Fudan so and so he gifted it to us and he said this was for us. Kala formada aka ilaha illa Allah Rasul Allah. Masha, Fernanda Alhamdulillah minha. So he basically said that I was gone to take care of some things to report back to the messenger salaat exam. And then when I come back and then this is what you people do, you're taking favors, and you're basically taking gifts from the locals, that's what you're doing. You're using your position of influence they gifts from the locals, he's made them all take off their robes and give them back.

00:15:40--> 00:15:55

And many of them were really upset by this for obviously, you can imagine just normally people would get upset, why are you being so harsh? Why are you being so tough? So these are the two things, two incidents that specifically happened

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

with Alia, the Allahu talana.

00:15:59--> 00:16:02

And some of the people that he was there with.

00:16:04--> 00:16:07

So, at this particular time,

00:16:09--> 00:16:56

some of the people that were with him there, developed a little bit of, you know, hard feelings towards the end of the Lakota language. And they said, you know, he had been a Jaffa Jaffa, he had been very harsh with us. So one of them says, Come to obrigado allegan. So, I just hated him now, I didn't like him. I was mad at him. And he's another narration, he talks about that, you know, I was really, really upset with him. He had been really harsh with us. He didn't let us switch on our camels, he made us give back the clothes that we had been gifted. So he said that he needed to send a report back to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam about how things were going in Yemen. So he

00:16:56--> 00:17:29

wrote a letter to the professor. And one of the guys who he says, I didn't like him, I was mad at him. He gave it to me and he said, I need you to take this to the profits a lot each item and provide any clarifications or explanations that he might require about what happened. You read the letter to him and answer any of his questions. So he said, I went there. I read the letter for john to aacrao kita. were appalled sada kosaka. Yes, that's there's nothing more to add. This is correct. This is correct. This is correct. And I gave the full report to the profits a lot.

00:17:31--> 00:17:44

He said while I was sitting there reading the letter confirming everything in the letter asking the process on Do you have any further questions? And he said no. And I gave him I was giving him the report. The profits are some reached out and grabbed my hand.

00:17:46--> 00:17:48

I'm succubi I'm Sokka. Dania.

00:17:50--> 00:17:56

I'm Sokka. Well, kita I was holding the letter in my hand, he reached out and he grabbed my hand that I was holding the letter in.

00:17:57--> 00:18:04

He held my hand, you know, somebody who's like kind of busy with something, you reach out and you grab their hand. He grabbed my hand. So I looked up at him

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

in the process and looked into my eyes.

00:18:08--> 00:18:13

He smiled and he said, I typically do Aliya, you're mad at him, aren't you?

00:18:15--> 00:18:18

You're mad at him, aren't you? You're angry with him.

00:18:19--> 00:18:32

And he said, this is a messenger of God, peace be upon him. You don't lie to him. There's no point in lying to him. So I said now? Yes, you are correct. I am upset with him. There's a few of us who are upset with him.

00:18:34--> 00:18:37

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, lots of widow.

00:18:39--> 00:18:40

Do not be mad at him.

00:18:41--> 00:18:43

Were incontrato hibou foster Who?

00:18:44--> 00:18:49

In fact, even if you liked him, I would tell him that you should I would tell you that you should love him.

00:18:50--> 00:18:58

Forget about being mad at him lots of little forget about being mad at him. Even if you said you like Tim, I would tell you that you should love him.

00:19:00--> 00:19:02

He's funny. He's Miami.

00:19:04--> 00:19:32

And one of the things was the prophets also told them, he said you're mad, because he didn't let you swap your camels out with, you know, the camels in the public fund. And you didn't let you accept those gifts from the locals. Do you know he told him then he said do you know in terms of the spoils of war that were collected in Yemen, Ali declined to take his full share. Because you want it to give more to all of you.

00:19:33--> 00:19:58

The share that he was supposed to get of the spoils of war in Yemen, the share that he was supposed to get because he was a leader of the army. He declined his share so that there would be more for you guys. You didn't know this, did you? And he said no, I didn't know it. And he said at that moment, I developed a great admiration and a respect for him. Because I understood he he left his own money on the table for us.

00:20:00--> 00:20:14

The only reason why he was telling us not to take those camels and not to accept these gifts, not because he wanted more for himself but because he truly was such an honest and such a great man of integrity, such a man of honesty and integrity.

00:20:15--> 00:20:16

In another narration

00:20:18--> 00:20:19

he

00:20:21--> 00:20:30

another person says another individual who was also in Yemen with alira de la Catalano. He says that, when I came to Medina,

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:20:34--> 00:21:17

he looked at him and he said, he said I had mentioned to Abu Bakar I went to Abu Bakr when I got to Medina, I went to Abu Bakar and I told him, you know, I'm really upset at Ali. He did this he did this he was really harsh with us, etc, etc. So I complained to Abu Bakar Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala who said to me, he said, Don't say this to the prophets a lot. I don't complain to him. Because I will work under the law to understood you don't have a real complaint. I know I mean, he's an honest man. You're just mad because you you did you were trying to do something that you shouldn't do and he yelled at you. That's why you're mad. So don't complain. He said when I went to the profits a lot

00:21:17--> 00:21:33

Hmm Maybe I will record a lot of I told the professors and under listen someone might complain about the Allahu terrano I just want to give you a heads up so this man I might have been shares he says when I went to go see the profits a lot he said and he said well lucky yeah

00:21:37--> 00:21:42

the profits awesome said we're lucky. You have hurt my feelings. I said

00:21:43--> 00:21:48

the process Simpson who will lie to you hurt my feelings? You have caused me pain.

00:21:49--> 00:21:57

He said I said in Allahu alayhi wa sallam tells you, you've offended me. I said in an Allahu la Leonardo

00:21:58--> 00:22:09

da, I take refuge with God. While Islam I take refuge in my Islam, and all the aerosolization that I may have offended the prophet of God.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

Where would I go if I offend the prophet of God?

00:22:13--> 00:22:17

What have I done? He said, I was so like, shocked.

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

He said the prophets a lot of them looked at me and he said, Man, either IE and

00:22:24--> 00:22:27

someone who has offended Ollie has offended me.

00:22:28--> 00:22:37

You, you you, you're mad at Ali. You're not talking to him, you're upset with him? Well, that upsets me because he didn't do anything wrong.

00:22:40--> 00:22:42

So this is one of the

00:22:44--> 00:23:24

interesting kind of interactions that happen and shows you the ethics of Allah, the Allahu talanoa, and how he was willing to do something that would be unpopular with the people because it was the right thing to do. And you see the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam vouching for him. The second thing I wanted to mention is that the process saddam had sent Khalid bin Walid, to deal with that tribe. The tribe name was Hamden. The Hamden tribe was becoming very confrontational. And they were getting very agitated. They wanted to fight the Muslims. Khalid Bienvenido, the Allahu taala, who spent six months in Yemen, trying to deal with these people, and they would not listen. They basically put up

00:23:24--> 00:23:31

a barricade, they said, We are not interested in talking to you. We don't want to hear what you have to say. We are ready to go to war with you if need be.

00:23:32--> 00:23:41

And it was a very bad a very tense situation. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sent alira de la Catalano.

00:23:42--> 00:23:47

And he told Khalid, that the processor has called you back to Medina. He needs you there.

00:23:48--> 00:23:53

The Companions but Robin Isaiah, he says that, Allah The Allahu taala, no king.

00:23:54--> 00:24:39

He gathered us together. He led us into prayer was time for prayer. After we got done with prayer, he said, Everybody line up for soften us off. And then he lined us up in one line through a demo of a dinner. Then he stood out, he stepped out in front of the line. And he asked the representatives of that tribe, I'm done to hear him out. Well, Corolla him kitamura, Sula, salonica, and he read to them a message, a message from the Prophet peace be upon him that the Prophet had dictated to Ali. So he read them the message of the Prophet peace upon him. They heard the message. They said, Give us a moment. They went back, they convert amongst one another, and they basically came and they

00:24:39--> 00:24:40

said, We are ready to become Muslim.

00:24:42--> 00:24:48

It's considered one of the virtues of Ali rhodiola one for us. I met him Daniel, Jimmy and

00:24:49--> 00:25:00

they all became Muslim. And he wrote a letter back to the prophets a lot. He said, I'm reporting to him, that everyone in Hamden has become Muslim. The threat is gone. They are

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

became Muslim no fighting was necessary when the processor um when he received the letter he told someone read this to me when they read it to him and he heard the news that a slow him down with me and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he fell into such Harada he he did such a right on the spot out of sugar gratitude to Allah. And then he lifted his head and then he made do I said a Salam O Allah Hamdan, Salam O Allah Hamza, may God's peace be upon the people of whom done may God's peace be upon the people of him not, this is not only part of the part of Allah, the Allahu taala, whose endeavors in Yemen. Number two, this shows and illustrates one of the virtues of aliotti Allahu

00:25:41--> 00:26:18

taala know that he was the means of bringing all these people to Islam. Number three, I particularly also wanted to mention this, because this once again illustrates something that has been a constant theme in our study of the life of the Prophet peace be upon him. And that is the simple fact that the prophets, a lot of them always prefer peace over war. You see, when he finds out that that we did not have to fight that tribe, they became Muslim. He fell into such Danny thanks and praises ally and he sends peace upon those people and prays for those people. The profitsystem didn't want war. He wanted peace. He don't want death, he wanted to preserve life.

00:26:20--> 00:26:28

So this is something that he mahadi and others narrate about Alia the Allahu turon, whose endeavors in the region of Yemen

00:26:30--> 00:26:32

The next thing that I wanted to talk about

00:26:33--> 00:26:37

and this is really fascinating.

00:26:39--> 00:26:43

Is that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:26:49--> 00:26:58

So one of the other I had mentioned before about some of the people being angry with Allah, the Allahu talana because he was being harsh.

00:27:00--> 00:27:03

He said one of the other people who went to go see the prophets a lot of a sudden

00:27:06--> 00:27:11

when the Prophet sallallahu Ali, when he went to go meet the process Salaam, he says, I went to go visit him.

00:27:12--> 00:27:34

I went back to Medina, and I greeted the process and he greeted me silently and he asked me how I was doing, how my family was doing. And then he asked me more questions. How is everything back in Yemen? How's everything going? So he said, I couldn't hold myself and I said, Yeah, Rasul Allah, Maliki nomina. liminal Hilda to suicide.

00:27:36--> 00:27:42

Ali has been really mean, he's been really harsh, and he's been really tough with us. Ever since he came down there.

00:27:44--> 00:27:48

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he continued to listen to me.

00:27:50--> 00:28:26

The prophet or someone was listening to me and then he slowly just kind of like leaned away from me a little bit. He seemed like he wasn't really liking the tone that I was taking. And he said, I didn't pick up on the hints. I just got caught up, you know, I got angry. I got heated. So I kept on going on and on. He's been like discipline like this, like this. And I kept on going that wouldn't stop in the process of just kind of like leaned away from me a little bit, kind of took some distance from me. And I wasn't picking up on the hints the clues. So finally, the processor leaned over, and he tapped me on my leg while I was talking.

00:28:28--> 00:28:32

He tapped me on my leg. I was sitting right next to him. He tapped me on my leg.

00:28:33--> 00:28:35

He said yes, I didn't know Malik.

00:28:37--> 00:28:59

His father's Southern Malik. His father was a Shaheed he was killed in the Battle of the martyr. He said given the Shaheed You're the son of a martyr, said Ma, ba de Cali, Cali, Attica. Lee says stop talking about your brother Andy. He said for lucky leopard. arlindo actioner.

00:29:00--> 00:29:01

Back in feasibility?

00:29:03--> 00:29:20

He said, Yes. I have no doubt. Ali was probably tough on y'all. But he was tough on the offer a good reason for the sake of God. He was tough on y'all because of it was the right ethical thing to do. He was not tough on you for himself. He wasn't tough on you because he wanted something from you. He was tough on you because it was the right thing to do.

00:29:21--> 00:29:42

And he said from that, at that moment, I said to my health, como Casa de Malik, I cursed myself How could you do this? Allah Ronnie, Goofy micromodal Yo, Mama, Daddy, la jerem la jarama we're lucky enough to be suing Abbott unseren while Ania he said from that day on forward, I made a note to myself. I will never speak ill of Ali ever again.

00:29:43--> 00:29:49

Process I'm loved him. he appreciated me vouch for him. And he said I never spoke ill of him ever, ever again.

00:29:51--> 00:29:56

The last thing that I wanted to mention here that is really, really

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

amazing.

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

Is that there are actually two things I want to share.

00:30:05--> 00:30:12

One thing I'd like to talk about real quickly among Buhari as a narration, we've seen a narration like this before we've talked about it.

00:30:15--> 00:30:17

Allow me to preface it with a comment.

00:30:19--> 00:30:27

The element of radicalism becoming radical, and very extreme minded is a huge problem.

00:30:29--> 00:30:37

It's a very huge problem. And it's the first type of deviation that appeared within the Ummah, when somebody becomes so extreme minded so radical,

00:30:38--> 00:30:47

that they take on a very extreme form of practice of the religion. And then they judge everyone through a very, very narrow lens.

00:30:48--> 00:30:55

And they are willing to even disqualify other people's faith, because they do not meet their level of extremism.

00:30:57--> 00:31:24

And this problem first appeared during the lifetime of the Prophet peace be upon him. It happened one time at the place of Iran after the conquest of Mecca, then they had the Battle of her name, then they had the siege of a thought if they were coming back to Mecca to do ombre the profits a lot. He was distributing the spores of war. And this very extreme guy, he showed up, and he started to confront the profits, a lot of the sound and the process said this man is evil.

00:31:25--> 00:31:26

It happened once more.

00:31:28--> 00:31:39

A leader the Allahu taala knew some of the spoils of war that were collected there in Yemen. He knew that back in Medina, there was a lot of poverty, because Medina was home for anyone who didn't have a home.

00:31:41--> 00:31:43

It was everyone's home. It was everyone's family.

00:31:44--> 00:31:57

Right so they have a lot of poverty back in Medina. So he sent some of these foes of war to Medina, to help out there when it arrived there with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:31:59--> 00:32:28

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam started to distribute some of the spoils of war. There were some tribal leaders, leaders of different tribes, who are visiting Medina, to learn about Islam and to talk to the prophets of Salaam and consider becoming Muslim, the Prophet sallahu salaam to kind of soften them up a little bit and bring them closer to accepting Islam. It's part of the culture, it's not bribery, it's part of the culture. If you have an elder, you show them you know, you show them respect you stand up, you greet them.

00:32:29--> 00:32:45

Right, it's it's a gesture of respect. You go to visit like a scholar back, you know, in the east, you're in Jordan or you're in India or somewhere like that, and you go to visit a senior Island scholar, you take a little gift, you take a small bottle of perfume, or

00:32:46--> 00:32:51

you take a small bottle of perfume and you gift it to them. barakallahu li commsec Mullah Hara,

00:32:52--> 00:33:07

right like it's a part of urban etiquette and respect. So part of the tribal leaders part of the was show them a little hospitality give them a little gift to take home to their families. And so the prophets of Salaam gave them a gift from some of the spoils of war that arrived.

00:33:09--> 00:33:10

So this man,

00:33:11--> 00:33:16

this one individual, he walks up to the prophets a lot.

00:33:18--> 00:33:21

He's described in a narration, a hot lining.

00:33:23--> 00:33:25

His eyes were sunken in

00:33:26--> 00:33:29

basically describing like, almost like a sign of malnutrition.

00:33:31--> 00:33:40

mushy food was nothing. His face was gone, as they call it, like his cheeks were bones are sticking out. His cheeks were sunken in

00:33:41--> 00:33:43

nationalism in Japan.

00:33:44--> 00:33:49

It's like his forehead was completely like bruised and scratched up.

00:33:51--> 00:33:53

Like he just it was really rough and up.

00:33:54--> 00:33:57

Carefully hear his beard was completely unkempt.

00:33:58--> 00:34:01

as big and bushy and wild going in all directions.

00:34:02--> 00:34:10

Maluku Ross had his head shaved, but it looked like he was shaved repeatedly and kind of roughly like cuts everywhere on his head.

00:34:11--> 00:34:12

mutia Middle East

00:34:14--> 00:34:25

he wasn't me his pants were like cut from the bottom. They were just like kind of like jagad like almost cut with a knife. And they were jagged and they were very, very short, like almost up to his knees.

00:34:27--> 00:34:35

He had this look about him. He gets up and he walks over to the profit cell setup. And he points at the profits allottee Center.

00:34:36--> 00:34:40

Once you imagine that, he points at him. And he says it tequila.

00:34:41--> 00:34:42

Fear God.

00:34:44--> 00:34:46

Right. Fear God.

00:34:47--> 00:34:50

Right. So you've ever had one of these guys get in your face.

00:34:51--> 00:34:53

They got in the face of the processor.

00:34:54--> 00:34:57

Right? There's a little sense they have

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

the profits a lot of times has

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

Same way luck. Are you out of your mind? Boy, are you out of your mind? Wait, look, what's wrong with you? He says, Oh well so how can I say tequila?

00:35:12--> 00:35:18

If I don't have tacos who has taqwa, if I don't fear God who fears God, you didn't tell me if you're not

00:35:19--> 00:35:30

far less Carla Thoma voila, Roger, Roger he mid conversation processing still talking turns away he walks away. I've said what I needed to say. And it just starts walking away from the processor.

00:35:32--> 00:35:37

Caliban Walid he had just come from Yemen, he had brought the spoils of war.

00:35:38--> 00:35:45

Hollywood emmalin de la Katana leaned over to the processor and he said jasola Allah Audrey Veronica Who

00:35:47--> 00:35:49

can I please murder him?

00:35:50--> 00:35:55

Basically translation May I please murder him like he disrespected the processor.

00:35:57--> 00:35:58

The processor says law

00:35:59--> 00:36:02

he says something acuna use only

00:36:03--> 00:36:06

I know that he seems rude and he seems crazy.

00:36:07--> 00:36:17

Maybe he prays he's a good person just will make an excuse for him. That's the generosity that's the kindness of the prophets of Allah.

00:36:18--> 00:36:34

Khalid or the Allahu taala on who he couldn't hold themselves, because he was so bothered by him offending like, you know, being rude to the process around. He said, we'll come in mussenden jacobellis and he malice and I'll be your messenger of God, who cares if you praise look what he says look at

00:36:35--> 00:36:42

what he says with his tongue does not represent what's in his heart, but not evil. This man is he gets in your face he points in your face.

00:36:44--> 00:37:05

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Worry not, he said Neelam Omar and uncover an Illuminati Villa Ashoka. butanna. So Khalid, maybe you're right. Maybe there's evil in his heart. But I was not told to rip open people's chest and their hearts and look what's inside their hearts. If he says I'm a Muslim, and he prays, I don't touch him.

00:37:08--> 00:37:09

It is what it is.

00:37:10--> 00:37:14

But there is a life of the Hereafter, he will have to answer to God over there.

00:37:15--> 00:37:17

Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:37:19--> 00:37:33

After some time, he told the companions and this is something very important to remember because we see these types of radical and extreme minded people in the world today. They're far and few between, but they are there and sometimes occasionally rarely, they cause trouble.

00:37:35--> 00:37:36

They cause trouble.

00:37:37--> 00:37:43

The process and listen to what he said about them javita Buhari authentically in the room in the house.

00:37:44--> 00:38:08

From these kind this kind of person, there will come more people from this kind of person. Oman, yet to know Nikita Bala he wrote about don't recite the book of God, fluently, fluidly, though, read the book of Allah language. I wish I had it wrong. But the understanding of the Quran does not go below their throats.

00:38:09--> 00:38:22

doesn't reach their hearts. Kind of like how it's an expression in Arabic. You know, I would say in one ear and out the other. In Arabic, the expression is you read something you say something but it doesn't sink into your heart. It stops at your throat.

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

Young RuPaul Amina Dini. comonomer Casa homina homina they will leave the religion like the arrow leaves its bone. They will spit gopher from their mouths. The prophets a lot. He said, um, he warned against these kinds of people.

00:38:41--> 00:38:52

The last thing I wanted to mention here in today's session about our leader, the Allahu taala, and who and his being sent to Yemen by the prophets a lot he sent him something that's very beautiful.

00:38:54--> 00:39:39

Is alira, the Allahu talana when the professor said I'm sent him, and he told him, you're going to go to Yemen, and you're going to teach people there and you're going to, you know, help people in their religious affairs and religious matters and issues there. He said that, and ahaadeeth was sin. I was still very young alira, the Allahu taala, who was 10 years old, when the process and received divine revelation. This is about 20 years into the or 22 years, excuse me into the mission is 30 years old in his early 30s. So when he says I'm young, he's not like a child. But he at the same time, he's he what he's trying to say is, I'm 30 years old, I'm not like a senior. I'm not an elder.

00:39:40--> 00:39:53

And so I felt a little bit odd that I should you know, give judgments to people and tell them how to live their lives. You should do this and you shouldn't do this. When there's people that are older than me.

00:39:54--> 00:40:00

I'm 30 years old. I'm not 50 I'm not 60 I'm not an elder. I felt like I didn't possess wisdom.

00:40:01--> 00:40:03

So I was very nervous.

00:40:04--> 00:40:27

So I said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Deborah athelny illa coman jacobina Houma. daffin What are you and He will allow a messenger of God you're sending me amongst the people who are going to have issues and situations. And I don't know how to give judgments amongst them. Like I don't know how to give rulings. I'm not a judge. I'm gonna call the

00:40:29--> 00:40:33

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tapped me on my chest.

00:40:35--> 00:40:51

It's kind of like tapping someone on the shoulder. He tapped me on my shoulder. And he made to offer me so long with a bit lisanna who will make his tongue like sound, allow him to speak soundly. We had the Alba who guide his heart.

00:40:53--> 00:40:54

And then

00:40:55--> 00:41:04

He further make me sad in the La Casa de Santa como alberca. Allah will guide your tongue and make your heart firm.

00:41:06--> 00:41:19

He then gave him some advice. Listen to this is simple, but think about how profound it is. He said Yeah. He said, Okay, let me give you a pro tip number one.

00:41:20--> 00:41:26

Yeah, Lee, either jealous or illegal. hussmann when two people come to you with a dispute,

00:41:28--> 00:42:07

philosophy baina Mahatma homina Aha. Do not give the judgment until you have heard both of them speak. No matter how convincing one person's case is. They got evidence and they swear by God and all of this. Hear them out and then say Yes, sir. And listen to the other and do not give the judgment until then. Hi, Tomas Amir terminal. Oh, well, just like you listen to the first person for indicator for ultrasonic as a beginner like acaba, if you just learn to listen, you'll know how to judge. He told him that the biggest part the first part of giving good judgments is listening.

00:42:09--> 00:42:17

So project number one, you want to lead the people who want to guide the people to learn to listen, listening is the most important skill.

00:42:18--> 00:42:52

And our leader, the Allahu taala, who says after the processor may do after me. And he gave me this advice, and I took it to heart. He says, For my shock to fill in baina isn't anybody for the rest of my life, I was never doubtful at any time, whenever I gave a ruling or a judgement. I never doubted myself ever again. A lot always guided my heart and always put the right words on my tongue. And in fact, till today, in the Islamic tradition, Allah The Allahu taala, who is known as a possessor of great wisdom,

00:42:54--> 00:43:17

the sayings, the quotes, the judgments, the advice of an era, the Allahu taala, who studied till today, profound, he was the one who says, and I'll just share one piece of advice earlier, the Allahu taala angle, and with that will conclude, there's so many, so much advice that he's given that is so profoundly beautiful, but I'll just conclude with one. He says,

00:43:18--> 00:43:20

Kelly, may NASA be my archelon

00:43:22--> 00:43:26

speak to people according to their level of understanding,

00:43:27--> 00:43:31

speak to people according to their level of understanding,

00:43:33--> 00:43:35

or to re do that, and you get the Allahu rasuluh.

00:43:36--> 00:43:48

Because when you speak to people about things they don't understand, and you create confusion amongst them, particularly about the religion that will lead to them rejecting a lioness messenger. And that will be on you.

00:43:50--> 00:44:30

So, yes, preach to religion, teach to religion, share the message that we will always send, be sensitive to who you're talking to, where they're at what they understand and then craft your message accordingly. That's one of the great pieces of wisdom that Ilana shares with us. So with that, inshallah, we'll conclude in the next sessions going forward in sha Allah. We'll be talking about how digital without the farewell pilgrimage, it's a really remarkable, you know, at some level, it's the culmination of the mission of the prophets, a lot of them so inshallah we'll be starting that in the upcoming sessions. And that will go on for a few sessions because we really

00:44:30--> 00:44:43

properly want to study the hunterdon WIDA May Allah subhanaw taala grant us the ability to practice everything that we've said and heard. So how to light up from the heat subhanak Allahumma byham digna Chateau La ilaha illa Anta sakana to LA
