The Hedgehog, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a turning point, that history of Islam.
And why was it so important? It was important because it was the beginning of the establishing of
a Muslim state. And it was the first time that the Muslims were now going to be the majority before
in Mecca, the Muslims were a religious minority, even though they were a religious minority. They were, of course, they faced a lot lots of trials and tribulations. And they tried their very best to get as many people to accept Islam as possible. And but the prophets of Allah and so we kept on calling people and there came a time in which everything sort of like was at a standstill, meaning very few new people were accepting Islam. Those who remain were very hard. You know,
they were very stubborn. They didn't accept Islam. The Prophet saw the lioness and went to thrive, and he went to all of the other neighboring tribes also, and they refuse to accept, even though he even asked them just to allow him to call to Allah subhanho wa taala. Even if they didn't accept it was it was okay.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was okay with it. So the head of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, of course, there's so many things, that so many lessons that we, that we learn, first and first, first and foremost, Allah subhanho wa Taala could have easily made the people Mecca Muslims. Right? He could have easily made the people Mecca Muslims, but they refuse to accept this law. And the prophets of Allah, Allah, so I've had to leave. And so one of the most important lessons is that you have to put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala, and that the trials and tribulations will come, that the tests will come. But Allah subhanho wa taala, in the end, Give
victory to the Muslims. And so like, right now, you have so many problems, like, for example, in Palestine, and Syria, and Yemen, so many places where so many Muslims are suffering. There's Allah subhanho wa Taala know that. And there's Allah subhanho wa taala. Of course, Allah knows, and Allah subhanho wa Taala is all wise. So many things happen to us. Some of the things happen, but we feel like sometimes helpless, but we have to understand that Allah subhanaw taala is always in what should we do? We should try our very best to do whatever we can, like during the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. There were the you know, the Muslims were being persecuted. So much so that
hubub Inara came to the Prophet sallallahu ala someone said, or messenger of Allah. Why don't you ask? Allah subhana wa Taala for help ask the loss of hammer to Allah to give us victory. And so the prophets of Allah lesson reminded him and he reminded the ummah of the people before they went through a lot more trials and tribulations, but they still hold held on to their Deen. So there are many things that happen in life. But we know that this world is only temporary, that sometimes things happen. Maybe children are, you know, child, sometimes the children are suffering because they they get bombed. And there's so many things, you see videos, and it's just heartbreaking.
Right? But what are we to do? This is a test for us also. How's it a test for us? The test for us to see how we are connected to our Muslim brothers and sisters also see if we make dua for them or not. Are they really do you think if you say that they're your brothers and sisters, how do you act towards them? Like why don't if this was our own sons, our own daughters, imagine if that were to happen to our own sons and daughters. How would we feel? These are our brothers and sisters that are suffering. So that's why we make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala and we ask Allah subhana wa Tada for help. And sometimes we feel a little bit helpless just like during the time of the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he saw the Companions, he saw those who were tortured and beloved was tortured. In front of his eyes, he will see so many Yeah. And yet they were tortured until they were martyred. And the Prophet Salam couldn't do anything. So right now you like you feel a little bit helpless, right? But know that you make you do all that you can, there are some things that you can that are in your you know, that you can do something. And there are some things that you can't do. So whenever something's things happen, you give it your all, but you put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala. So the messenger of Allah Subhan Allah and leaving to Medina, leaving to
Medina. And then coming back later on, of course, there are many lessons in that. And the lessons are that we number one is that we should put our trust in Allah. But putting your trust in Allah means what
it means even though Allah promised Allah subhanho wa Taala promised
that even though he promised that you still you do all that you can. So like right now, there are so many things that we know that's going to happen. From where, from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu. So, who's coming?
Who's coming? Alima Mahalia is coming, who else is coming from an ISA is coming. And the gel of course is coming also. We are we know all of those things are true. Right? But what do we do?
What do we do? We have to do whatever we can, in whatever capacity we have. So that's one of the lessons in the zero, for example, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in his era and the Hadith of the prophets of the lives. When the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left, Medina left Mecca, the Meccans, they put a bounty upon the Prophet sallallahu, some Annabelle upon Abu Bakr, that any one of them, if you catch it, capture anyone, how much you would do get
100 with the best camels, you know, you understand that this is not just like regular stuff. It's not really like regular, if someone were to say, Okay, listen, if you get this, if you do this, if you find this, you have information, you know, like, sometimes you have all this reward, right? All the awards, you know, like on every board on TV, you know, like, Hey, if you have information leading to this, you know, we'll give you $3,000 Right, sometimes, but imagine somebody saying we'll give you 100
like it will give you 100. Right? Imagine how much is that?
That's a lot of money. It's a lot, right? If somebody because in those days, the camels that especially the red camels, the best the best camels, those were like the most expensive SUVs that a person could have. That's something that's very, very valuable. So imagine somebody giving you that? That's a lot. So one of the one one of the
leaders have one of the tribes
was so rock abdul-malik. So Rob pneumatic, he heard he heard about this, this bounty, this reward, reward, this reward, and he's sitting with his companions. He's sitting with us when somebody came, somebody came from his own, no tribe. They came, they said, I think I saw, I think I saw the Companions, the to the the the person and the person that the Meccans were looking for.
So ragab Anu Malik. When he heard that he was, of course, what does he want? He wants to Camos. That's a lot. So he says in he says, I saw them on the horizon. The other guy says, I saw I think I saw them says, nah, that's not that's not them. They're just two people who were with me. There are some two people and you probably saw them. They were just what was he telling the truth? No. Why was he saying this? He said, No, the two people you saw were two people who were just with me from you know, from such and such a tribe, who just you probably saw them. Why? Because he wanted the money all to himself
where he was going to the money. So that's the kind of person that he's looking for. Right? That he wants. That's the kind of person he was he's like, You know what? He didn't say, Oh, those two then they're like, oh, let's go guys. Let's go look for him that we didn't have to share. No, no, he doesn't want to share.
So what he did was immediately he said I continue sitting there but he
Did he really want to continue to sit? No, he wanted to go straight to get his horse. But if he went straight, and then people like, Hey, where are you going? He said, That's not them, then why are you leaving are, you know are gathering. So he, he says I stayed and I talked a little bit more, until everything was sort of like forgotten and they laughed. They laughed. They took my spear with me, and I made sure you know, when you carry your spear, he's like, I carried it, I dragged it, so that people wouldn't see. Otherwise, you're gonna say what?
No, I like, you know, his, his arrows. And you know, he's taking it with him, you know, because he wants to capture the profits. But he doesn't want them. Hey, Rob, why are you taking everything with you? Where are you going? Right? So he says, I went into, I went, and I got on my horse, and he tried to hide it, so that nobody would know where he's going. He said, I sped straight to the area where my companion told me where they were.
And then he went, as soon as he went, all of a sudden, his camera has, you know, his, his horse. His horse, sort of like, you know, fell like the, the front hand went forward, he fell from his horse. And he says, and he's thinking, you know,
he's a very, very skilled horseman. He doesn't just fall off just like that.
And again, he went forward. And the same thing happened again, when he saw and he said, I got so close, I could hear I could hear the Prophet Salah lines and reciting.
So the messenger of Allah has reciting Quran.
And this is his I was making naked, so he got so close. And then it stopped again. And he said, the first time I said, you know, maybe this is a sign. No, no, can't be me. It's just coincidence that he keeps on going forward. Finally, when that happens one more time. He says, Now this is, this is not normal.
This man is now normal. He's being protected.
Like, you know, you know, what's the, you know, when something's happening? He says, all of a sudden, like, there's a cloud of dust pop popped in front of me. So he got scared.
So when he got scared, what did he say?
Mohamed, I come in peace. Like them. I'm trying to I come in peace, and obey. The law sees him. And he says, Let me let me take him out. Because he's one of the prophets of Allah who is protecting him. That will work us and don't let him come. Let him come. Let him come here. So he comes closer to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. And he's, he's afraid. Why is he afraid? Why is he scared?
Like, would you wouldn't you be scared. There's something crazy, like that happens. You're trying to get somebody and also this, all this thing pops in front of you. Your horse can't move. This is like out of the ordinary. This is not normal. So he's scared. And so what is he ended up asking, like, I seek Your protection. I'm asking you to protect me.
Like he's scared because he knows that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is someone who is very special.
Because he intended to harm the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He's afraid that he will get harmed. He goes back like this, man. I don't know what's gonna happen in my life now. Right? So he's scared. He realizes this is not normal.
And so he goes, he says, I seek Your protection. I asked you that you then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He said, No, he said, the first he says, You know, I know that you you're going to be victorious. I know. You are someone who, who's going to be helped. Right? And so what is Soraka? Soraka comes asking for Putin. He's trying to kill him first. But in the end, he is seeking protection. You say he, so he says, As long as you don't, says it's, you promise me? Promise me that you won't. He first of all question, what is the purpose I'm always do.
He always calls people to Islam first. But of course he refused. If you refuse, then promise me one thing, that you will never help those who fight against the Muslims.
Because you will never help. Like you will never don't join anyone who fights against Muslims. Because you have that for me. I got promise. And then he says, he says but no, but he says I want your protection. Make sure that you your people don't harm me. And so he says, How do I know you have I wanted in writing.
I wanted in writing
said I want you to provide something in writing. Of course I will Bacara the law and says no, this is you know from the profits. I'm a lawyer from that, you know,
No Muslim shoulda woulda, shoulda harder. Okay, well, but you know, no Muslim, whatever it was, it should actually harm him. And he says you have that you have that from a promise from me. And so he wants that in writing. So that if something happens, he says, you know, this is what the Prophet SAW and promise me on this day and I will not be harmed by the Muslims even though he doesn't accept Islam, but he knows that the Muslims are going to be victorious because of what's going on. And so then, you know, this writing this this this a parchment with a guarantee, this ended up ended up saving his life. Because what does he end up doing? He ends up being one of the prisoners of the
Muslims later on. Right and when they were about to kill him, capture him. He says, no, no, I got this protection. I'm not I'm not supposed to be hard. This is a guarantee and this was during the hijra, but the problem is that a lot so said also Rafa.
Also Rhonda, what do you think on that day?
When What do you think on that day? When the mangoes you know, the gold bracelets, have the, you know, the Persian Emperor
and the Persian emperor? Because if he's, what do you think when when on that day, when you have his his bracelets, bangles, golden bracelets on your hands?
I Soraka is hearing this from the Prophet sallallahu
even though he's being the Prophet sallallahu is being chased, and they're trying to kill him. What is he saying to them?
What's he saying to this is glad tidings that eventually what will happen that the Persian Empire will fall? Yeah, Allahu there is no Muslim. What kind of Muslim empire is here? Who's going to
the Muslim empire is gonna fall because of the Muslim?
How many Muslims are there to start with? What power do they have? But in the end, Prophet salaallah alayhi salam is giving them glad tidings. He's giving him glad tidings. And so what is that? What's the lesson here? The lesson here, even though we know all that happens, that's going to happen. But what is what did the prophets have them have to do to, to in order for all of that to happen? What happened? So many battles with the disbelievers amongst the headbutt, the hypocrites, the Yahoo, and the pagan Arabs, also the different tribes, so many boundaries until that happened during the time of Omar hotcopper.
But they didn't say like, Hey, you know,
Allah promised us,
Allah subhanho wa Taala promise that we'll get victory hamdulillah that's just where a man is coming. And you don't do anything?
No, because remember,
anytime the Muslim ummah was through a difficulty, times of hardships and difficulties, they're all some people will say, you know, you don't need to do anything, you know, like this, it's coming.
Right? You don't need to do anything, you know, like Inshallah, we will get it, we will be victorious in the end. You don't need to do anything, you will just wait for him on Monday. How many years? Do you know how many people said that?
From the beginning, when the Muslims face difficulties, anytime they face difficulties, what do they say?
Ganga is calm con, and the mangoes when they came to attack the Muslims and how many crusades came?
How many crusades came? If every single time all of that happened all the Muslims I in my mind is covered how many years?
They did it wait Imagine if they waited? How would the Muslims would bite the knock the Jerusalem be and throw the Muslims? Yeah, so that we know that certain things are gonna happen. Like for example, hadith of Sai Muslim, the prophet some lives and prophesize Yusaku Allah huge bar Illa Allah Iraq, there will come a time and that there will no fees. There's nothing when I did have there's no food and money and anything that another is going to be an embargo against Allah Iraq,
in Iraq, and then there was an embargo against people react just few years ago right. And he said the next the next people, you know, the next week, boy, I have a sharp
Allah sharp, there's going to the there's going to be
sanctions and starvation is over a million Muslims. Women Children also died and we hardly hear about it right. But when that happened, medicine, everything people Iraq, Iraq was in shambles before Iraq was a very, very well
The country. And so later on, of course, what happened to Syria? And now what's happening in Philistine all of the areas called what? Sham any money going in, like Subhanallah, you see the brothers, or the poster aside, and then the brothers who are trying to raise money for
our brothers and sisters in Palestine? And like I was asking, like how, there's no nothing coming in?
Nothing coming in? How are you going? How are we, when we help them out? We can help them whatever. He says, No, we can't send anything. There's nothing nothing there, no money, nothing, no money, nothing. And the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that the people who suffer that, but how are they? How, by the way? How are they helping them, they are going to, because they have people there on the ground.
And what they're doing is all the supermarkets and anywhere where they're selling food, they're going, there's like the war, we want to buy everything that you have. Because if you leave it here, it may get bombed or destroyed anyways, we'll take everything you have, we don't have money to give you right now. But we promise when everything settle down, we're able to send in money who promise you this much. We get everything but we need all this food out to the people
on the other food, so the brothers are actually going in helping you know with all the poor, starving water and everything like that every food that they could get, and the people who are getting how much how much the average person is eating
two pieces of bread, what are the morning, Wednesday afternoon,
just two pieces. One in the morning, that's all they have, you know, and, and most of this is where you where it's coming from.
A lot of it is coming from the flower. Sometimes you know that they had before that the UN sent in the store, and they have just enough flour to make. And for some people they don't barely have anything, even water they don't have. And so the Prophet said Allah prophesize that the people who sham will suffer this believer and Sahih Muslim, the Messenger of Allah mentioned and then the you know what else he mentioned?
Who you know, the next people are
usually Messer, the people Egypt,
the people of Egypt are going to face the same thing.
People of Egypt and then you will return
and then you will return where you began.
You will return to where you began.
What does that mean, you returned to you again?
What did the Muslims conquer Iraq, then they conquered Shah. Then they conquered Egypt. And eventually all of that
will be taken back.
By who the Prophet Salam Salam was asked by the Companions, he said many people
he said from the non Arabs
from another half others mean other people are going to take all that you return back to where? Where do we turn back towards the beginning of the Muslim nation?
What is the return was? What's the beginning?
Where where's the Muslim empire start? Yes, he has Medina, Medina, then you return back to Medina, you will begin your return from where it began.
And then when all of that happens, where's
Where is Ali? My magic only becoming from
Medina, and then he will flee to where
to Makkah, he will flee to Mecca. And that's when the Bay will happen. So we know all of these things are gonna happen. But how do we interpret like the events right now to be that? No, because we don't know. We don't know sometimes there's so many things that happen. And we think this is it. This is what it means in the Hadith. And then it becomes more clear. Just like I read some books, right? Some of the commentary about about
the Arabs Bedouins building tall towers, right? As like I was reading because some of the commentary of the scholars before and they said some of them were mentioning
I saw it people are building three stories houses.
Before Medina, we had one or two now people were like building three four storey houses in Shaham. And yeah, Allah.
They thought that that's it like these were the better ones are building, but what do we see? We they thought that that was it.
And then what do we have now?
Under the stories, right, and so it's very dangerous to interpret that
Current Events and apply the Hadith to that because there might come a time when it's even more clear that you don't need any interpretation. Everybody knows that this is it.
Everybody can see it without any you know, it's like you can see very clearly. And so during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
they knew Allah gave them glad tidings, but they just like, wait, no, you do all that you can to establish the deen and your life, your family, your community, you do all that you can, according to whatever it is that we're taught in the Quran and the Sunnah, to establish the deen of Allah subhanaw taala. And so that's one of the most important things that we have to
we have to do and the other thing that we have to do is that we have to, we have to be sincere
and sincere in all our actions,
sincerity, and other actions. And also that motivation, that desire to call people to Islam and the Muslims. And to have you know, during the time of the Prophet Sunderland when the headgear also, he continued on the hit, you know, there was a story. There are two people, you know, these two people, you know, they call
they were thieves in these on the way to Medina, the two thieves, the prophets, Allah have met them along the way. And, you know, they're very famous thieves. How are they? They were they will call it they were known as
and one. Do you know what Amana means? They despise once. In other words, I'm like, the bad boys. The two bad guys. Like, you know, you know, like gangsters. They always like to have, you know, like names, like the, you know, like, put themselves down like, for example, like 50 cent like 30 cents, why you ever 50 cents? $1 $2, right?
Where you put yourself down, you're like, bad. These were like,
these are the despise ones. And upon the Messenger of Allah when he met them, do you know what he did? He called him to his lab. Why? Because they are the ones who are most thirsty for guidance, right? And so like people who like the people in the ghetto, people in the prisons, that's why a lot of people in prison, they're looking for a way out. They're looking for meaning in life. And so you don't ignore those people. You can sometimes we tend to ignore people like that. We say, Oh, these people are like the lowly people of society, the criminals, homeless people and so forth. No, but these people,
they're more likely to accept Islam.
So instead of looking down upon those people, maybe when you see them, they say, Hey, can you know, can I talk to you about something? Can I talk to you about Islam? And maybe, you know, like, you'll be able to help him in sha Allah, to accept Lila Muhammad Rasool Allah, so don't be literal. And so the prophets of Allah and then changes No, no, no, you're not Al Mohammed anymore. You're not the spice Elmo. kufra. Man, you are the noble ones, the two noble ones. And so the, during the time of the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam, the desire to call people to Islam to take advantage of every moment in time to call people. So in times of trials and tribulations and hardships, one of the
brothers, you know, some of those people who, you know, I know some brothers, like, especially, we just saw some videos from one of the brothers, some of the brothers and maps. You know, though, there were some people who were, who were were who were demonstrating the protesting, right, and one of the brothers called them to Islam. You know, he didn't, he accepted Islam. He took shahada, just a couple of days ago, took shahada because they're looking there are people who have, you know, who have who have a conscious, and they're thinking, you know, like, these are people who are being oppressed. But if you always do join hands with him, and you always say, You know what, your Yeah,
we should help people who are oppressed.
But what do we, what do we forget to do sometimes?
We forget to call them to Islam, the beautiful religion of Islam,
and forget to call them to the fitrah. And so our intention, there are just one of the lessons we can learn is that even during the hijra, the prophets of the lives I'm continuing to ask and to call and, of course
another thing another lesson
during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and during the hedgerow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that
you know when
the people have faith, that people will be human, even in times of difficulties.
And they, they are firm, and they are strong, and they put their trust in Allah subhanaw taala. And of course, there are times in which you know that you have a lot of know a lot of difficulties, you have to sacrifice. One of the main lessons in the Sahara is the sacrifice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, him leaving his town is very, very,
something that's very, very difficult to leave a place that you're always you're so used to, then you have to leave a place that, you know, from the beginning of time that you're so used to, used to being, you know, used to, you grew up there, and that's all that you've known. And then to continue to need to leave that it's very easy to leave a place that you love, and you're used to your friends or family. That's something that's very difficult. So sometimes in the deen of Allah subhanaw taala you have to be willing to sacrifice this dunya and sacrifice some of the the things that you have to stand for the truth. But if you do so, you know what you always get. Allah subhanho wa Taala always
gives you something better,
replaces you with something better. So during the time, the Hedra when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left some of the companions left before, and some of them were able weren't able to leave before, but the majority of them when they left and the Meccans they did not allow them to go.
Whenever they would find someone leaving, they would capture them. Try they try to prevent them, even though it didn't harm them anything asleep. But they don't they wouldn't allow them to leave. They wouldn't allow him to live amongst them was. So hey, MC Nana, roomie. So hey, have you seen in a roomy? He was so happy to see them was no, it's his name was our room even ever the Roman? What was he a Roman.
He wasn't a Roman, he was an error.
But he was captured and he was sold as a slave. So he lived with the Romans. He lived with the Romans and who are the Romans.
The Romans were the Eastern Roman Empire at that time, the Byzantine Empire. They were known as the Romans they considered themselves Romans also, they're not Not, not the Eastern, not the Western like neither one Italy. But this was the past in linea, which is Istanbul. And by the way, the Muslims will again, conquer Istanbul. And the deal one of the best armies will come and when they conquer the you know what happened.
That's when the doll comes, which also means what's going to happen
if the Muslims have to take back constantly Nia which is Istanbul right now Turkey, if the Muslims have to take back Turkey, what is that going to be?
That means Muslims are going to lose Turkey too.
Understand, that means the Muslims are going to lose Turkey too. So everything that's happening right now, there's so many things that's going to be that's going to happen. And so you this, you might think Iraq and so far, this is such a major tragedy, and yes, it is. But
it's just the beginning.
That's just the beginning. And that's where we have to what are we to do though, that's why we ourselves when we say it's just the beginning. Don't think it's going to happen just there. Like the world is changing every day, every moment. That's why the most important thing for us is to connect with a loss of 100.
Because anytime a moment in time, our lives can end at any time. And the most important thing is to die as Muslims to hold on to the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala that's the most important thing. So when we say Nana Rumi
he was trying to make a Hydra and the people used to they leave, you know, can they carry a lot of stuff with her? No, because we carry a lot of stuff and they would know.
And so they will be waiting in the mountain passes to try to capture the Muslims who are leaving. Some of them would leave at nighttime or times in which people did not, you know, we're not you know, we're not there yet.
They tried to sneak out. And sometimes in the daytime, they would sneak on the daytime, like the time when they Lulu when people are all sleeping. And sometimes they would sleep sneak out at nighttime. And so he was amongst those who was captured. And then when they came,
and they said, Who do you think you are?
How can you? Why do
you think that you can just come up come to our city like live here in Mecca,
Mercer he was. Later on he was, of course, he was free, he's free. He used to be a slave. Then he was freed. And he started, he worked really hard. And so he did have some money. So you think you can come here and live and get rich off of us? And then leave whenever you want to? Just make money like that? And take everything? Yeah. What do you think you can do that? Do you think you're able to do you think you can? And so he says to them, he says, Is it is money? Is the reason why you're stopping? Is it because of money? That you think you know, I hear you're saying that I'm making money off of you that now you want it now you just want to leave? So that's why some of us are in
that situation. Maybe the non Muslims look at us tours. Look, look at us living in America as being similar to the case of case of Sohei Rumi. Why because they might say look at you you were poor refugee coming from you didn't have anything you came here and made money off of us. Now you think that you want to leave with you're here, because you want to leave maybe because you can't worship Allah freely here. You just want to leave just like that. No, no, no.
Yeah, you want to leave Go ahead. But you know what, you're not gonna take any money with you, we're gonna freeze all your bank account.
Maybe stay here, it'd be one of us.
Right? You want to stay here, you leave your dean.
You can be one of us.
Otherwise, you go you want to go you don't take anything with you.
Like, so hey, roomie, was put in a situation where they said, You think you can that you just came in make money off of now you can leave whenever you want. Now. So he said, If money is the problem, then if I were to tell you where my money is, my where my money is. And you go get it? Would you let me go?
So they said yes. Yeah. Well, you tell us where are you where your money is? And in the old days, where they used to hide their money that banks
what do people even back home?
What do you think when you hide your money?
You dig a hole in the ground somewhere in the house. Right? You dig a hole in the ground, somewhere in the house. In fact, I remember like,
even my, my,
my grandfather was
was very, very wealthy. He was he was known as
he was known as merchant, the merchant. And yeah, he had the business map.
That was his name. That was his nickname, the business map.
And this was before the Communists came. Right? And so you had where he Where did he hide his money, he hid his money. And then
on the ground, you know, under the handle of the house next to you know, some pole and pillar, right. And so later on, of course, when they came, you know, and after he passed away, you know, only few people only, like thrown I think only my grand grandmother knew where it was. Problem was when we dug it up a lot of money there a
lot of money. But you know what kind of money it was
Because it was money with the previous government.
When the Communists came, they changed all the currency. Like this is like a lot of money, but it's not worth anything.
So the old days, where did these to hide? They used to hide these to dig it. I mean, used to dig a hole in the ground and hit it, and you would know where it is. And that's why there are many times you know, like even to this day, some people and the old, you know, in those areas, they will dig something up and they will find
coins, old coins will go because especially when they're building houses, and they will find because people used to hide their wealth there. Sometimes a lot of money. So Souhei he has his money. And of course nobody knows where it is. So he says if I tell you where it is, and you get it, would you let me go? He said yes. And we'll let you go. We will let you go. And so they said it's under the it's under the activator, which is like the threshold of the door and my house is dig under that door area. You'll find my money there. So they dug it and they found found his gold and silver coins.
went that he had and they let him go.
They let him go course what did they do? They took all his money.
Right? And so when he got to Medina
and the prophets of Allah he my son was informed about it.
He didn't he's no, he didn't tell anybody, Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala informed him that this is what happened with the Sohei that he had given up on his money. So the prophets of Allah said, he said,
he said to the he said, to Souhei, he said, Robbie has various way.
Like you're trying to you had a very profitable transaction, you might think that that's a loss, right?
Like that's a loss. That's like he lost a lot of money. But what did he have?
He was able to be with the Prophet sallallahu to worship Allah and the Messenger of Allah. And that's
really handy. Yes. So that was profitable. So sometimes,
when we we only see that which is apparent, but there are so many things that are happening. Some of our brothers and sisters, yes, they're going through suffering. And some of them are martyred. But they are, inshallah they're in a better place.
And they're saying right now, like, yeah, all the struggles, all the thing, every difficulty that they had loads of hunger, the days of thirst, was it all worth it?
What Allah subhanho wa Taala gives them in the hereafter and in the grave.
They and the marchers they wish they could come back and suffer again. And be martyred again in the path of Allah.
Because he, but even in the dunya, yes.
Yes, I mean, just saying that, yeah, this is only one aspect, one side of it only, that Allah subhana wa anago give them so much more. And that we with that which we don't see. And so, and also in this world, when a person
sacrifices anything for the sake of Allah, if they're sitting there patient, the key is
in Mahoma, yet daddy, well, yes, we're fading Allah, Allah, you're at your mercy Massini indeed, he has the CA and his patient, Allah will not make the efforts go to waste, make their efforts go to waste. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala raises their status. And that's why we are now speaking about who lessons about the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
those who sacrifice we are mentioning their stories.
We're mentioning their stories, Allah raise their status in this life, in the Hereafter. And the lessons we take from their actions, change our changes our lives. And so the reward will continue to go to them also for their actions, and because of their sacrifice for the deed, and that's why we have
Muhammad Rasulullah and that's why no matter what you do,
you will not be able to catch up with terms of the reward and the status of the companions of the prophet Elijah their status because of what they sacrificed the early Muslims and what they sacrifice. So in the age of the prophets, Allah Nathan, one thing we learn as we learn sacrifice, that you sacrifice for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah will reward you in this life and the hereafter and ALLAH subhanho wa Taala raise your status in this life also and in the hereafter. What's another thing that we learn
in the history of the prophets, Allah lives and from the Hendra, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we learn to put our trust in Allah, by doing all that we can first.
And this is repeated over again in many incidents, one of which is when the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard that the Muslims were, or the non Muslims are trying to kill him.
What did he do?
What did he do? What did he just
Allah will protect yourself or protect. But what did the Prophet sallallahu do? The first thing he did when he heard about what they did that morning, in the when it's time for play Lulu whenever he was asleep, the Messenger of Allah left his house, and how did he leave his house?
He covered up his face.
And he covered up his face. So that people he covered his face when he left. Whose house was he going to?
He was going to the house of Abu Bakr, the law or the law
He was going to tell him that permission had been given. But the fact that he went at a time in which people were sleeping
and he covered up his face, he was taking all precautionary measures. And then what else did he do?
The profits alarmism order led me to be tell him to sleep on his bed that night. I just sleep in his bed at night. So then when he left the Messenger of Allah some laughter He said, sleep on my bed and put on my green cloak. So the messenger of Allah says, Hello, I'm used to have his green bow. You know, that's what he used for sometimes you know, you go to sleep. You use that for your for like a blanket. So he would cover himself up with that. And so I live in the fall he said he told me that night to sleep in my my bed. Now, if you are unable to be a toddler, what would you do
Garrison Allah you think?
Okay, they're trying to kill you and you try to tell these people you're bad.
For us, we will be scared, right? We scared? Yeah. Oh, Messenger of Allah, you know, they're trying to kill you. And you're trying to tell we don't pretend to be you?
Right? No, I literally thought it was brave and courageous. Yeah. He's, he's happy to do it, yes. To sacrifice for the sake of Allah, you know, to be at the service of Islam in the Muslims. The sacrifice for the sake and the sake of for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah. So he's he was the one that slept in the bed of the prophets of Allah.
And wearing the cloth covered himself so that the people were thinking, That was him. So when they came in, what did they find?
When they came in, they found Ali, maybe you thought it but the Prophet sallallahu. Notice he did. He took all precautionary measures, even though did Allah Allah already promised to protect them?
And already promised to protect him? But he did even that. And then when he left, how did he leave? Did he just go? Daytime? Just leave? No, he left at nighttime.
He left then where did he go? Did he go straight on the same road to Medina, he went south, to have a here
to try to, to try to make sure that it's easier to try to, to try to you know, to, to, to go in a different route road than the normal person would usually use. So that the people would not know where he was. So he went south. And of course, the first day that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is missing? What do you think he does?
What do you think that people are doing? Everyone's looking for him? Right? Especially why they want money, everyone's looking. So you don't want to be out anywhere.
You don't want to be anywhere. You can't be seen by anyone than the first day. You can be seen by anyone. And the second day, you can't be seen anyone. And third, the after three days, people are saying Oh, we didn't find him. But we looked yesterday, we looked the day before. And then when they stop looking, they know that hey, if he already, he already left? If he's already left and where he would be where would he be he would already be halfway maybe far away already. And so the Messenger of Allah hid in the south, he went south, and they scan the cave called what?
So, so this is so he hid. So this is like, every single action that the Messenger of Allah took. He is the Prophet and Messenger of Allah. But when you're doing something, you do your very best. And that's why when you open a business, for example, right, you have to first of all, do that which is right, choose business, a business that maybe that's halal, that's as pure as possible as you can. And then what do you do? You just open and just do any? No, you have to study you have to consult and you have to pray istikhara right, you praise the hara, and do SHA, SHA, SHA, SHA and console, about, you know, what's the best way to do it, and speak to people who have experience and then you
do all of that.
And then you do what else?
You make dua to Allah subhanho wa taala. So that's why the Messenger of Allah the whole time he's making dua to Allah, he's remembering Allah. And so it's teaching us in life. If you want something, whether you want to go study, whether you're at school, whether it's work, whether you want to get married, whatever it is, you do your job, you do the best that you
You can, and then you make dua to Allah subhanho wa taala. And you praise the hara and you consult with people. You can't just sit here and do nothing and expect to have children. So I want children, let me just say Make dua to Allah.
And then maybe the stork will come and bring a baby and drop it in front of your house
no story, nobody's gonna drop a baby in your house. Because you will, you may do and you want to make no, you do all that you can first right? And you get married and you find and even after you get married, you still might not get it might not have anybody. You continue to make dua you never lose hope. Like Prophet Ibrahim was old and Zara, she was past menopause. But Allah subhana can make things happen, never lose hope. And so that's why putting your trust in Allah we learn from the, from the Sierra, the Messenger of Allah, Allah has promised
victory. But he did all that he could.
He did all that he could. He supplicated they went through difficulties. And then Allah Subhana Allah gave me a victory. Right? And that's why for us, we have to in an orphanage to form a community, to be the best Muslims that we can be. We have to make an effort, do all that we can. We have to supplicate to Allah. And then we take all precautionary measures. If you want to wake up for Fajr prayer. And it's you having a hard time waking up prefer the prayer. Don't just say yeah, Allah, you know, helped me to wake up from five different No,
you first what do you first have to do?
asleep, and then set the alarm clock. And sometimes you know, alarm or not work.
If your alarm clock doesn't work, tell someone who's close to you to call you. Or even come to your house. Let's go to the masjid together. Because if you know someone is coming at a certain time, you're more likely to get up. Right and then take all of those precautionary measures. Even after you do all of that sometimes it doesn't work, something happens. Your friend who you call talk and he overslept to, you overslept, and the alarm went off and you didn't hear anything. You're so tired, but you did all that you could.
And then you supplicated to Allah and you slept early. That's what putting your trust in Allah.
If you do that, that's the kind of trust and Allah that we should do. If we do that in sha Allah, Allah will give us success. That's the key to success is to put your trust in Allah.
But when when I say when I tell when you tell people put your trust in Allah, what do they do?
Like alright yeah, Allah and then they just do nothing.
But what Islam when you say put your trust in Allah, the true putting your trust and I was what
made you do all that you can, until you have you can't do anything else. And then you supplicate to Allah. That's what true putting your trust in Allah.
That's what truly truly putting your trust in Allah. And that's why Prophet Jaco. When he told his children when they were going to melt to Egypt.
He knew they were very handsome.
They go into one to the one together, what's going to happen? They enter the gate, they are foreigners. They speak a little bit different they wear different clothing. And they are one of the most handsome group of young men that the world has ever known.
Right because they are the children of Jaco who the children was who was, who is a prophet, who is son of a prophet prophet is Haku send the Prophet Ibrahim. And Prophet Ibrahim
was extremely handsome,
extremely handsome. In fact, the prophet Salam said, I saw him and there's there's, there is no one who resembles the prophets a lot more than Prophet Ibrahim. So they resemble each other. And who was his wife?
Sarah, she was so beautiful that when she entered Egypt, the people Egyptians, they said, they went to the king and said, We found we saw a woman, the likes of which in beauty we've never seen before. And that's why the king wanted for her for him, though, right. So from that project, he came
the children of Prophet Jaco, the proper use of and his brothers, so they were extremely handsome. And imagine if they walked together as a group entering what happened. What do you think is gonna happen all the women in the city
And you know, these are not Muslims, right? And so whether they're gonna have jealousy or lying,
have jealousy. So he wants to protect. He wants to protect his children. He wants to protect his children from from jealousy.
And so he doesn't just say you know, just just go you know, go go go back to Egypt go to Egypt.
Go to Egypt. No, he says, you have any here All My Children.
Let at Holloman Bobby, why in Durban
do not enter from wonder what Hulu, I'm in Abu Dhabi, with a Federica. Inter, from different doors. Why?
Because he doesn't want all the intention. If they enter from different gates, to from here to from there, they don't get too much attention. Right? And he says what does he say? He says to them, he says, Well, my only uncle mean Allah Himanshi it says this is not going to help at all.
Against what ALLAH SubhanA has already will, it will help Who is Allah Illallah the decree of Allah and the judgment of Allah Subhana Allah decree of Allah has already you know, it's whatever happens is going to happen. But I'm going to do all that I can.
Right? So he's doing everything that he can to make sure that all the intention is not on his children so that they don't have the evil eye. And so he says, After that, I like it.
So some people might say, well, don't you put your trust in Allah
tell you for your trust, just go out and go in, who cares? If Allah if it happens, it happens. No, he says, Allah here, I'm doing this because I put my trust in Allah. And then he says, well, either he failure to work along with working on and that's how people who put their trust in Allah, that's what they do,
that they do all that they can to protect their children. So some of us some people nowadays, they don't care.
Every time their children do something like adorable, they put it up on social media. And there are some people who are watching and there are many, many people who maybe don't have children and they're jealous of you. And I and evil is true. And that's why you don't go off and you know like showing off everything that you have in social media because you might lose all of it.
And that's why you take precautionary measures and you remember Allah and you remind others also so if somebody for example comes to house and says you're you're you have a very beautiful you have very beautiful children
and they don't say Masha Allah reminders and brothers say much ah, this is a loss of bandwidth that
mashallah like this is from Allah subhanho wa Taala
it's not my it's not me. You know, the whatever I have my my house made me look nice. I have a nice car. I have beautiful children. I have this and that, but it's not it's Allah. Remember Allah, it is He Who gave it to me, not because of me. And that's the difference between a Muslim and non Muslim. Everything you have a is a Muslim, who you attributed to, to Allah subhanaw taala. And so one of the lessons we learned in the Sierra or in the Hydra, the Messenger of Allah took precautionary measures.
And he was very meticulous, very meticulous and ended with this and shall also do you know, who we hired.
He hired a guide, a guy by the name of Abdullah Abdullah and then another you know, some of the scholars I mentioned, it's already that someone say Oh, anyways, this is a mushrik a non believer in non Muslim, but why did he hire him?
He hired him number one, of course you have to find somebody who is trustworthy. So just because so he hired him as a guide, because he knew the road better than anyone else. So you hire the best even if that person is a non Muslim, you hire them because in Islam, you always try to look for excellence.
Excellence if a Muslim can do it good the best job then it's okay hire the Muslim but if you know the Muslims are very, very unorganized, unprofessional. It's okay to hire someone who's professional even though they're not Muslims.
Because you want to do the best because if anything deserves the best, it's Islam. It's the Dawa to Allah subhanho wa Taala
So that's why everything that we do, we try to we try to do it the best way that we can.
And so excellence is also one of the keys to success to excel in it, and that's why we're taught. That's why, you know, there's my shoulder it's on the brothers and sisters are learning Quran. That's when we read it are some of the brothers. I know some, you know, some sometimes when I teach, yeah.
Why are you so like?
What do you call it? So?
You know, make it so difficult? Like in the pronunciation like, I can't do it, like,
let him go, is it? No, let's do let's get this correctly. Right. This is the word of Allah. And this is a lesson that we have to focus on Hassan, if we're going to read it, we're going to read it the way in sha Allah, that the prophets, Allah, I'm excited, we try our very best. And even if the difficult for us to do so we will continue to struggle with it and we continue to work on it, to work on it, and being and so you correct everything, try to try to perfect everything that we do. And of course this this goes to also our Ibadah the worship of Allah and that's where we ask Allah Allah, I'm a Neolithic Rica, we're sure Kriger will host the biotic. It is the focus on quality, not
just quantity. So we learned from the header of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam to focus on something that's so focused on quality and also be meticulous, the Messenger of Allah when he was in the cave of Hira, you know, in our time, how do we receive information?
How do we receive information through the phone, to TV radio, in the old days, they didn't have that. And so if the Messenger of Allah is hiding, he wants to know what information what's going on in Mecca. During the Hedra. What did the Prophet Salam do? Who did he who was in charge of bringing information
up there, Abdullah Abdullah, Abdullah, the son of Abu Bakr, he was in charge of bringing information to the cave. Because if you don't know what's going on, that's very stressful, right? So he was in charge, but if he's to come, what's going to happen if he walks that way?
For there's going to be footsteps footprints. somebody's walking that way. Then the Meccans are very good at falling footprints, who is supposed to wipe the footprints?
It was supposed to be the one who's in charge of that was Amir buffo, Hara. Amir Bufo Hara was the free slave of Abu Bakr, he had a flock of sheep his responsibility was to do it to bring the sheep to the area so that it would walk and cover all the footsteps
like the see how meticulous the message of Allah was.
And then of course, when the sheep come, what else do they he can do? You can also get the milk also, and who is and of course you're gonna stay there. You can't carry too many things with you who's going to bring the food
a smart vinta be backer so you see the planning.
This is how the profit plan look how meticulous it is.
And that's how you put your trust in Allah.
So if you're planning to open a business uh Yeah, talk law Yeah.
You know what work law means you work very hard.
To work Allah Allah means you work hard.
For us when we say to work, Allah Allah put your trust in Allah. What does that mean? Relax. Don't worry.
Right? Relax. No, no, uh Tawakkol Allah, Allah, la onda calm that our Kelowna Allah Allah He, how about our cooling. Notice if you were to make to put your trust in Allah Hakata our coulomb is the way that you should put your trust in Allah. Allah would provide for you like you provide for the bird
that will do Hamas and Mataro how batana they will go out with an empty stomach and come back with a full stomach. So one of the main lessons we learned from the hero of the prophets of Allah is, is to put your trust in Allah. But putting your trust in Allah means you do everything that you can. And if you do that, then Allah gives you success
and everything and you will see when the Muslims focus on that, then Allah will give them success
in everything that we do, whether it's learning the deen of Allah, whether it's in life and business, try to be meticulous in the asset because that's what our loves. And if you do something that Allah loves, Allah blesses you
and your time and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala
to teach us that which benefits and benefits from now he has taught us was a low value and Amina Mohammed Salah al he was
