Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala hartsville. And via you were more discerning,
say that Mohammed, were early he was off the edge of mind were bad.
Paul praises do due to Allah, a lot of the world's Alhamdulillah. For the pleasure and the privilege to be part of the experience of living through the life of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him.
And this is feco sera. This is the experience of trying to reflect upon what happened to our beloved messenger peace be upon him,
and the conditions that surrounded his life, and what was achieved, and what was the outcome.
And with this intention, we are praying and hoping that the life of the prophets Allah Salaam can become a living example for us,
and not just reduced to poetry. It is beautiful when it is said in poetic lines. But the problem that exists today in the Muslim world is that if the theater of the prophet SAW Selim is reduced only to beautiful words, and not followed up with beautiful actions, then it becomes similar to the stories of the great ones within all of the cultures of the world. And so we find that even on Christian channels that are being beamed into the Middle East, or Zionist radio stations that are beamed into the Middle East, you will see on some occasions, or you will hear on some occasions, that they actually use the Quran itself, they will start off with a beautiful recitation of the
Quran. Why are they doing that? Because they realize that in many parts of the Muslim world, especially in the Middle East, the recitation for many people has become reduced to a type of music, that the people are listening to the sound of the recitation and not reflecting on what is being said.
And so that would allow even a Zionist or even a Christian missionary to use it as a way to set the tone in the same way that you set the tone with music. Similarly, the seat of the Prophet Silla salon, in some occasions, has been used as a means of entertainment. And we would hope and pray that this can this can become for us
a roadmap and signs and symbols that we could follow in every aspect of our life, because the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him did not speak from himself. And he represented Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so Allah in His divine wisdom, set the conditions
and even molded the people to live out a story that would be an example for us to the Day of Resurrection. And so it is important for us as students of knowledge, even to reflect upon things like the family background of the province of the sudden what happened to his people before his coming. And we will see how significant that is because the names of the family of the province of the Salah are being used up until today in the Muslim world. For instance, if you travel to Jordan, and you get a passport or you see their stamps, it says the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan,
the king of Morocco, they were just passed away King Hassan and his son Mohammed claimed to be Hashi meek.
They claim to be descendants from Hassan, the son of Ali Baba tall column along with
amongst the Shia in Iran. If the ayatollah was a black Mama, then he claims to be a descendant from the family of Hashem, then you Hashem. It is also within our traditions that inshallah when the Maha de comes the promised one, he will be from the family of the Prophet salla Salah. And so it is important for us to understand what makes up this family. And what are the importance of the different elements within the family, because the elements within his family have been part of our leadership from the inception of the revelation, and will continue to be part of the leadership until the day of judgment. And so
the prophets Allah Selim was born. According to most of the historians, in the year 570 of the Common Era or the Christian era. This is the year of the elephant's animal field.
Mecca Tamil karma had become the scene of international conflict. The movement of large armies some of the most powerful armies on Earth, entered into the Hejaz area.
It was also the scene of divine justice.
But who were the people who were living in Mecca, who was a nobles.
And what was the position of the city of Mecca? At that point in time? What we understand is that because of the makeup or the position of Mecca in the Arabian Peninsula, with the trade coming along the south from Hadramout, Yemen, and then going along the hijas coastline as we studied, and then going to Syria, and trade also coming from the Tigris Euphrates region of the North, and going over into Syria and Palestine, that Mecca was in a strategic position to be in the middle of the trade, so that the people in Mecca did not have to go out. In order to get merchandise merchandise was literally passing through. Because the people who were traveling to the desert had to find the
waterholes. And because of the blessing of Zamzam and the settlements in Mecca, the pilgrims would go or the traders would go for strategic reasons of water, and to do business.
Also, religiously, Mecca, had become the center of idol worship.
And the pagans, as we had learned, had put in 360 idols to represent every day. In the lunar year. The idols were brought into the Kaaba itself. So people who believed in different idols from around the peninsula would come to Mecca, in order to make a type of pilgrimage. In the same way that we make pilgrimage to the house today, for a loss upon rotala. They would make pilgrimage in order to worship their idols. And while they came during the most simple Hodge during this season of the pilgrimage, they would gather together and they would do business, and they would make treaties. And they would decide their political and economic future for the coming year.
And it is significant that the pagans were so
so afraid of the message of monotheism coming into the area that Ebony's Hawk, and other great historians inform us that they would not allow a Christian or a Jew to enter into Mecca, except in the status of a slave.
And when the houses were eventually built, the Christians and the Jews had to live on the outskirts of the city, they will not allow to live in the center of the city, because the people was so afraid of the worship of one God.
And so the nobles of Mecca, who were the descendants of Ishmael, Ibrahim,
may Allah be pleased with them and send peace to them.
That they were literally the upper class and the ruling people within Mecca. And they had gained respect throughout the Arabian Peninsula.
And so in looking at the lineage, the nessip of the prophets, Allah salam, we find that there are three general versions that are referred to when we speak about his genealogy, or his nessip his lineage.
The first version
traces the lineage of the province of the Salaam to add Nan, and it stops at adnet. And according to the law, even the Abbess this was the most authentic one in the provinces, all of himself would stop generally when he talked about his lineage, with Adnan. The second version that you'll find in some of the historical texts, traces his lineage from Adnan
to Ibrahim alayhis salaam, but there is doubt and controversy about the reports. So nobody really has an authentic
genealogy and authentic chain that can actually speak with authority about the lineage of the Prophet peace upon up to Ibrahim, although all of the historians agree that his lineage does go back to Ibrahim Elisa. But how do you get there, this is where there is controversy. So the authentic scholars then would generally start with Adnan.
The third version that you'll find in some of the books, actually continues the lineage from Ibrahim Alayhi Salam all the way to Adam, Elisa. And some books will literally give you the lineage from the Prophet moments and sell them all the way to Adam, but the
problem with that is that if you count his, his his self, his left the people who came before him
from Ibrahim alayhis salaam to Adam alayhis. Salaam, you find that there's only 18 people.
So what they are saying is that from the first human being that walked on this earth to the time of Ibrahim Alayhi, Salam was only 18 generations or 18 people, and this is not possible. First, because the reports themselves are weak. There are no authentic reports. And secondly, most of the historians agree that you put a salon live somewhere around 2900 BC.
And so they are saying that between the creation of Adam and Ibrahim, it's only 2900 BC, and that is 18 up. And that's impossible because there are traces of human life that go back over 100,000 years. And Islam does not oppose science itself. Islam is the essence of science. And Allah knows best, who were Adam, peace be upon him was
and it is not important to us exactly where he was. But what is crucial is the fact that if we do use reports, we should try to use the most authentic sources. And so the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is described as being Mohammed bin Abdullah Ibn Abdul muttalib Ebony, Hashem, even up dumb enough even to say even keylab, even modera, even niqab even a even hardly even even Malik, even another even kwinana even Jose ma even even mudrick modelica urban le s, urban modern urban dissolve urban mud, Ebony Adnan status, the authentic reports. And when you go back over these names, and you'll find them in your texts. You will see that going back to our who are Mohammed ibn Abdullah
bin Abdul Mutallab. his actual name as we'll see was shaybah
it had been Hashem his actual name, as we will see was ama,
even abdomen F, he was Alamo hero in a crusade, his actual name was Zaid, even keylab. Even more urban Cobb, even a invalid urban fear. Fear has named his nickname was kodesh. So it is from fear at that point in his lineage that you get the name kodesh it'd been Malik Ibn another whose name was bass, even ki Nana, even even hazama to the end of the chain of the lineage. And so what is important for us is that there is a Nan coming from the descendants of Ishmael Elisa Lam, who married from the tribe of Judah. Remember the tribe of Judah home? Who are the the original Arabs who came from the south. So from that lineage, then coming down the line comes Adnan. And this
lineage brings together three great civilizations, Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam was coming from the Tigris and Euphrates region
hotjar May Allah be pleased with her was Egyptian. So she is coming from the Nile Valley, which may be the oldest civilization in the world. And the family of Judah home is coming from the original Arabs who are coming from the south in Hydra mountain Yemen. And, and so you see that this family brings together three of the most important civilizations in the world. And so going down to Crusade,
you will see per se in the year, approximately in the year 400 of the Christian era, they say ad we're not using anything to deal with the birthday of Christ. Now the best term is CE meaning Common Era. So 400 ce II approximately is to say
and to say is one of the most important of the
parents grandparents are the province of a solemn in that he gathered together his tribesmen what was happening in Mecca, is that people would come into the house, they would make pilgrimage to the house. But there were no form settlements, people living in tents and little houses. And so to say he was a strong organizer.
