Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Satan, Oberlin will Arkadin Nabina Muhammad and while the alihi wa sahbihi have adequate Salam, I'll praise that due to Allah, Lord of the worlds and peace and blessings be constantly showered upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad, the master the first and the last, and upon his family, his companions, all those who call to his way and establish his sunnah to the day of judgment as to what follows my beloved brothers and sisters to our friends, our viewers, the cinema ecommerce.

00:01:49 --> 00:02:06

This time period we are going through is a transition because we are just coming out of salata Maghreb and into our lesson, hopefully Inshallah, by next week, or possibly the week after we can go, we'll be able to go directly back to seven o'clock.

00:02:07 --> 00:02:13

And we are looking at pivotal moments in the history of Islam.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:28

pivotal in the sense that Allah subhanaw taala use these incidents, in order to change the course of how Islam was being developed amongst human beings.

00:02:29 --> 00:02:41

And we know that the concept of Islam itself is, in a sense is this lamp, it is submission, or surrender to the will of Allah.

00:02:42 --> 00:02:48

And all of the creatures on earth, submit to Allah in one way or another.

00:02:50 --> 00:02:57

Animals in particular, and insects have a type of instinct.

00:02:58 --> 00:03:29

The animals here in the North, when the cold season starts to come in, we are now going into the fall. And then in the winter, the animals then collect food. And you will see the squirrels, the beers, the northern animals, they will go into a state of hibernation, especially the bears. Squirrels tend to be around a little bit longer. The point is hibernation. So when a state of hibernation

00:03:30 --> 00:03:31

the animal then

00:03:33 --> 00:03:33


00:03:34 --> 00:03:36

heartbeat slows down.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:41

The temperature changes slightly.

00:03:42 --> 00:03:49

And I was watching a program you know about bears the other day that said that even the Mother Bear in hibernation

00:03:50 --> 00:03:57

when she's pregnant, about to give birth. She's in the state of sleep, and she has the child.

00:03:58 --> 00:04:03

And then the baby bear comes out and starts to feed from the mother in hibernation.

00:04:04 --> 00:04:14

So all of this is going on. And so what is this? How did the bears learn about hibernation? Instinct.

00:04:15 --> 00:04:32

Instinct is something that's built into the animal. It's something that that is part of the of the connection of the animal to the universe. And that instinct, that flow that life takes, that is what you could call Islam.

00:04:33 --> 00:04:37

So in a sense, all of the animals are Muslim,

00:04:38 --> 00:04:45

the sun and the moon, in their orbits, they are Muslim, because they're in submission to the will of Allah.

00:04:46 --> 00:04:59

And the difference here with human beings is that we have something inside of us we have a roar. We have something from Allah azza wa jal, a type of soul and also we

00:05:00 --> 00:05:03

have the ability to choose between right and wrong.

00:05:04 --> 00:05:07

So in other words, we can follow our instinct

00:05:08 --> 00:05:31

or we can go against the instinct. And you can see today how human beings have actually organized defiance to instinct, organized systems of thought that actually try to superimpose themselves over the the system set up by Allah subhanaw taala.

00:05:32 --> 00:05:35

And so and so, because of this unique

00:05:37 --> 00:05:51

situation that human beings find themselves in Allah azza wa jal has been so merciful to us as a human race, to send prophets and messengers to every nation and every time

00:05:52 --> 00:06:05

prophets came to China, Prophets came to India, Prophets came to Southeast Asia, Prophets came to Africa, to Europe, to the Americas,

00:06:06 --> 00:06:28

every major nation, major tribes, have received a want to at some point in time, showing them that they should believe in Allah, and they should avoid false deities, they should not submit to the tugboat, that is the one who wants to be worshipped in the place of Allah. And so

00:06:30 --> 00:06:51

that special position that human beings have, and Allah's mercy, cause that in the last Revelation, he would not, it would not only be a book, it would not only be a set of revelations that you just follow, and you live your life, but there would actually be a living form

00:06:52 --> 00:06:58

of the Quran itself, The Last Testament, that is the life of Prophet Muhammad SAW salah.

00:06:59 --> 00:07:08

And so through the narratives of his life, we are able to understand even more about the revelation.

00:07:09 --> 00:07:22

And people would say, narratives and history and stories. This is not the solid information. But Allah has revealed to us insert a user for verse 111

00:07:23 --> 00:07:48

Laqad canovee Casa see him a Puritan legal LDAP that in their histories or their stories, there is certainly a lesson for those people, men of understanding who will LDAP so those who have sets. And this understanding this reflection is what is so needed today amongst Muslims.

00:07:49 --> 00:07:52

Because we have the Quran, which is still with us.

00:07:53 --> 00:07:56

We even have authenticated, the Sunnah.

00:07:57 --> 00:08:01

We have strategic positions in our countries.

00:08:02 --> 00:08:13

We have scholars, we have youth, everything is in place. But there is a type of wisdom, there is something inside something in our approach to the deen

00:08:15 --> 00:08:35

that needs to be repaired. And this is where understanding history. Understanding the narratives helps us to gain perspective. So it's not just memorizing the verse, or memorizing the Hadith, but it is being able to apply it.

00:08:37 --> 00:08:46

So to be able to apply it you need to understand the circumstances surrounding the Hadith. And then also you need to understand something about your own society.

00:08:48 --> 00:09:13

And Allah tells us very clearly foxes causes the Elohim Jatropha karoun So relate to them the stories in order that they may reflect that it's uncertain or rough, first 176 and some scholars have even checked looking at narratives looking at how the Quran comes. Sometimes it's saying, Yeah, are you Hala, Dena Manu? And they say, oh believers is telling you something

00:09:14 --> 00:09:16

speaks to the people of the book.

00:09:17 --> 00:09:37

There's certain solid information, you know about science, so many things. But when they looked at it, they found that 1/3 of the Quran is causes. So through the narratives, the book makes sense to people. Because if you just give people straight facts,

00:09:38 --> 00:09:59

it doesn't necessarily make sense. And the most valuable stories for us is the biography is the story of Prophet Muhammad so solemn and his companions, this is the most valuable and we have gone into a detailed study of Sierra FeCO Sierra that is available, you know, within our our

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

Our Website here and you can find for Coursera.

00:10:03 --> 00:10:11

What we are looking at now is events, special events that took place in this time

00:10:12 --> 00:10:49

because the province also Labs had failed on nurse coordinator Molina yo Luna home, DOMA Latina, yo Luna. Okay, so the best people are my generation, and then the ones that follow them, and then those that follow them. That's the best time period. So we want to take from this, although many of the stories are known, in terms of what happens is the Prophet SAW Selim and his companions, but we want to look at pivotal moments from his life and from his companions, and then go on into other aspects of Islamic history.

00:10:50 --> 00:11:11

Tonight, we want to look at one of the pivotal moments right in the beginning. And when we look at the life of the prophet saw seldom at 40 years old when he reach 40 years old. So this is the age of maturity. When you go from being a young man, a young young to a man

00:11:12 --> 00:11:13

is 4d.

00:11:14 --> 00:11:26

And at that stage, he found himself amongst a group of people. They didn't have an organization, but it was a tendency. And these people you could call Hanif people.

00:11:27 --> 00:12:19

Hanif, meaning that they were pure and upright people. And it's not Hanafy of the Hanafi Abu Hanifa as follows. Okay, because Hanif here, is used in a general sense of the term. And so these people who were living in Mecca that as you know, was originally dedicated to the One God, but then following this, people have reverted to idols. So they were seeking the one God and this is a picture of the cave where the promises are used to go. So it's not a nice cave, you see many movies and the cave is like a nice nicely shaped it's like a hotel, right this is not caves are not hotels. Okay. So, this is the reality of the cave, where the Prophet SAW Selim actually went. So amongst

00:12:19 --> 00:12:23

these, one of these Hanif people, was water cabin Nofal.

00:12:24 --> 00:12:29

He is famous, because his relationship with Felicia rodilla when

00:12:30 --> 00:12:33

there was one name, his name was obey the law.

00:12:34 --> 00:12:42

And one name Earth man, man was a common name other people had, other than with Mandy been a fat. This is not with Mandy been a fan.

00:12:43 --> 00:13:01

And there was one called Zaid and he was considered to be a very sincere believer, this is not Zaid of inheritor. It's another one. So these are some of people who have been identified through Sierra as the ones who were seeking one God and Prophet Muhammad Sal seldom

00:13:03 --> 00:13:04

was amongst these people

00:13:05 --> 00:13:14

seeking the belief in one God any retreated to the cave of Iraq in order to take it to another level.

00:13:15 --> 00:13:27

Okay, so this is a pivotal moment now. It's a pivotal moment. As you know, Leila, Takada on the 27th of Ramadan. So this is where contact was made.

00:13:28 --> 00:13:42

So contact is me. It's like if you have a telephone and you're not sure if it's going to work, how many numbers 567, whatever it is, and suddenly you dial the right number, and somebody answers, it's contact.

00:13:43 --> 00:14:11

So the contact was made to the angel Jibreel Alehissalaam. And so this is now a human being, who doesn't know his mission, he doesn't have a mission. He just has this tendency toward the belief in one God. And so he would get visions, sometimes even when he's sort of awake, but definitely in the sleep. So visions in the sleep.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:26

Okay, I'm not just saying dreams, because sometimes people think the dreams are not necessarily true. This is like actual visions he would get. And then also, knowledge would be cast into his heart.

00:14:27 --> 00:14:37

And when we say heart, it does not necessarily mean just the lump of flesh that's in the body. The color is actually the door to your soul.

00:14:38 --> 00:14:59

So it is the door to the row. That is that is your gulp. And the Prophet peace be upon him used to say to his companions, that they should straight when they're about to make press. So he said, like, you know, make your line straight, right shoulder to shoulder, so that Allah will not so that your hearts will not be divided.

00:15:01 --> 00:15:05

So he's obviously not talking about inside the body, right? He's saying something else.

00:15:06 --> 00:15:16

And one time a person came to the Prophet Solomon asked him some information. Which direction should I go? And he told him, is Steph the callback?

00:15:17 --> 00:15:19

Ask your heart.

00:15:20 --> 00:15:37

Ask your heart. We used to have a saying here in North America. And it's interesting because it's almost exactly like his answer to that Sahabi. And we used to say, or it was said, within North America, always let your conscience be your guide,

00:15:38 --> 00:15:42

or your instinct, your conscience. So what's the conscious

00:15:43 --> 00:15:49

instinct in a sense, but it's something else? Well, as a human being, it's something else we have an instinct to.

00:15:50 --> 00:15:56

But this is now something even higher than just pure instinct. What's the conscious you can't

00:15:57 --> 00:16:11

hold it? You can't quantify it, you see. So it's something inside of us. And it's connected to the soul. And so, this is inside of this

00:16:12 --> 00:16:14

consciousness within us.

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

Knowledge would come.

00:16:17 --> 00:16:19

So these are forms of Revelation.

00:16:20 --> 00:16:26

Why it's called why in Arabic, and sometimes the angel would appear in human form.

00:16:28 --> 00:16:43

So in some cases, it would actually be a human and there was one of the Sahaba is a with Divya, even Kelby. So Danielle Kelby so he was a very handsome young man and sometimes Gibreel would come in his phone,

00:16:44 --> 00:16:46

but nobody else would know.

00:16:47 --> 00:16:56

And so after they hear left their presence then the Prophet peace be upon him would tell us companions that was Gibreel

00:16:58 --> 00:17:00

so they don't they didn't necessarily know at the time.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:03

And you remember the famous Hadith Gibreel

00:17:05 --> 00:17:22

where he came into the masjid because that was in the medina period. And he asked about Islam Eman and ESN. That's a very so he came right in as a man. And he was described as a person who had very dark hair and his clothes was completely white. Right? So that's human form.

00:17:23 --> 00:17:32

Right? Then sometimes it's like this generous it's like a bells. It's like the you know, the Prophet peace upon describe it as these bells going off in his head.

00:17:33 --> 00:17:44

So it's a really bad headache. And then it's like this chiming going on chiming going on. And then when he finally comes out of this, there's this Karanja.

00:17:47 --> 00:17:51

Okay, so then, and it's inside of him, it's imprinted in his heart.

00:17:52 --> 00:17:55

Okay, so this is how the why is coming.

00:17:56 --> 00:18:12

And on some occasion Gibreel would actually come in his real form. Now what it is, we don't have an actual description. Sometimes it says wings, but it's not little Cupid's flying around, right? That's Greek mythology.

00:18:13 --> 00:18:37

So it's definitely not that. But sometimes he would come in his actual form Allah knows best. Another form of ye. This was a little bit later on. This was the night of Mirage, you remember when the Prophet peace upon him went from Mecca to Medina Israa. And then he went up mirage. So what happened to him in the Night Journey is a form of ye.

00:18:38 --> 00:18:39

It's a form of inspiration.

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

Okay, so there are certain stages that it goes through.

00:18:45 --> 00:18:51

And so once the knowledge comes, once the Prophet peace upon him goes through this change,

00:18:52 --> 00:19:00

and he takes this pressure and this is really heavy what one time he is described as riding on his camel.

00:19:01 --> 00:19:04

And the revelations coming in now.

00:19:05 --> 00:19:17

And the camel actually started to kneel down, it knelt down, and if you have, you know, camels, you can put so much weight on the back but when you put too much weight,

00:19:18 --> 00:19:21

then the camels not going to move it then a little Neil.

00:19:22 --> 00:19:25

So the people who deal with cameras they know okay, that's too much.

00:19:26 --> 00:19:32

So in this case, it's just the Prophet SAW Selim on the camel and it goes down.

00:19:33 --> 00:19:34

So there was something heavy.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:40

It was something heavy in the Campbell had the sense to know that it's something too heavy for him.

00:19:42 --> 00:19:44

And it actually went into the kneeling position.

00:19:45 --> 00:19:47

Okay, so this is like revelation

00:19:48 --> 00:19:59

and sometimes direct communications that will come like even a voice that he hears like this. So these are different ways of the way. You know, the inspiration how it comes. So this is a

00:20:00 --> 00:20:02

A human being a man by himself,

00:20:04 --> 00:20:24

getting revelation that's communicating to the point where, when he first got it, as you have heard the story of how he actually went home, and he was trembling, he was shivering. And Khadija wrote the law on her very wise person, she covered him up.

00:20:25 --> 00:20:35

And she confirmed him. She said, You're not an evil person? Because he didn't know at that point in time. Is it a Jimny? Is this an evil force?

00:20:36 --> 00:20:41

Right? Or is it actually something from Allah? He did not know, at that time.

00:20:42 --> 00:20:46

So it's communication, right? So now

00:20:47 --> 00:20:50

that the communication cut off a little bit,

00:20:51 --> 00:20:58

okay, it stopped for a period of time. And the Prophet SAW Salem, you know, really, he was upset.

00:21:00 --> 00:21:24

And then sort of Doha was revealed, you know, and that is comforting the Prophet peace be upon him, that you know, you are you know, we guided you as an orphan, we took care of you. And at the end of it, it says, Why am I being there material Becca, for her death. So, concerning these blessings that your Lord has given you speak,

00:21:25 --> 00:21:33

give the message. So what that is, this is a pivotal moment, because what that is, is the beginning of Dawa.

00:21:35 --> 00:21:43

Okay, so Dawa is now spreading it, it's spreading the message. So it's not just you as an individual.

00:21:44 --> 00:21:56

Right, it is the spreading of the message. And so this is the first call. This is a pivotal moment in our history, without this moment, but all the things that happened in this time, we would not be Muslims.

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

All the years, of all the million billions of people who have been Muslim, he would not have happened unless we have gone through this period. And so we could call it today we use the word Dawa. But Tao, you know, it means a lot of things to a lot of different people, right? But really, what it means is to call somebody, you are calling somebody to something.

00:22:23 --> 00:22:33

Okay, so there's certain stages that it went through, when you look at his life, there's the first contact, right? If I had did speak, okay, then

00:22:35 --> 00:22:51

he was told through the revelation, go to your closest relatives. Now, this for people who are involved in Dawa, and this is important for us today. Because we are in a stage in a sense, we are in an early phase of Islam.

00:22:52 --> 00:23:06

Because we're not in this, no Ager, really, we don't have an Islamic state. We were in a sense, in the early stage, but that does not mean that we don't have to do the things that people do in the second stage. Because that means you wouldn't have to make a lot.

00:23:07 --> 00:23:29

But in a sense, how we're functioning. And in certain countries, you can see Muslims in Scandinavia, you can see Muslims in different, you know, parts of Latin America now, South America, there's a brother who, you know, I met from Ecuador, here, the country of Ecuador, right? So Ecuador, Muslims, and people are coming into Islam,

00:23:31 --> 00:23:32

and Colombia,

00:23:33 --> 00:23:41

and some of these Latin American countries, Central America. So you are literally like this early face.

00:23:42 --> 00:24:00

You're literally like this, all the people around you are not Muslims. So the first thing is in your strategy, go to your relatives, because your relatives know you, your close relatives, it's not even all your relatives, because maybe some of your relatives or your enemies.

00:24:01 --> 00:24:16

So you go to your close relatives, right? Following this, once you've you've you've dealt with the people of your your home, and your inner circle, you go to those who are inclined toward the belief in one God.

00:24:17 --> 00:24:24

So there are some people that the prophets are seldom knew they were inclined to believe in Allah.

00:24:25 --> 00:24:32

Right. So knowing personalities that he would go to those people. Okay, the next would be his tribe.

00:24:33 --> 00:24:38

Because Ben, oh, Hashem, that in the tribal society, there is allegiance.

00:24:39 --> 00:24:49

And when you're bringing a new message like this, this is not easy. And especially if you're saying to people believe in Allah and not the idols, that's political.

00:24:50 --> 00:24:55

That's political. It's like somebody here forming a new political party.

00:24:56 --> 00:24:59

Right. You're challenging the leaders.

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

Okay, so tribe then in terms of power, in tribal society, that's the next layer. This is like layers, right? It's layers of data. And if you ever find yourself in a position like this in a society this is this is a technique.

00:25:17 --> 00:25:25

Okay, then the Arabs in general, because Arabic speaking people, the Quran is coming in Arabic.

00:25:26 --> 00:25:32

So those who speak Arabic are going to be directly influenced by the book itself.

00:25:33 --> 00:25:43

Okay, so they will be the first ones in that wave and then following this, it then goes out to all of humanity and the gin.

00:25:45 --> 00:26:12

So it goes out to everybody. And even the gin were involved in this, because there is a chapter Serato gin, you know, where the gin actually got a type of data, and they accept it. So they believe is amongst the jinn. But that's not the normal type of data that we do. Right? It's only, you know, a specialized form of that. Okay, so the first people to believe remember the different layers now.

00:26:13 --> 00:26:33

So the first people to believe is his wife, Khadija, Ben coilette, Radi Allahu Allah, she is the first belief, okay, as a woman, who's the first and she is a wise person. He's a person who sheltered him. She's a person who, actually when the revelation came, and her wisdom is so deep, I ran across this one.

00:26:35 --> 00:26:46

Report that when the province has sold them now, in the beginning, he was really upset. Is this a Jimny? Is this evil? Or is this good? Someone's talking to me.

00:26:48 --> 00:26:50

And if you hear some voices coming in your head, right?

00:26:51 --> 00:26:58

You hear somebody say, is this evil? Or is this something you know what's happening? And so, in this one report,

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

she said, tell me if the angel is in the room.

00:27:06 --> 00:27:13

And at one time because she couldn't see the angel, it was not revealed to her. So he said to her, he's here.

00:27:15 --> 00:27:22

And she lifted up part of her outer garment, and she exposed her leg.

00:27:24 --> 00:27:26

And she said, now, is he here now?

00:27:27 --> 00:27:28

He said, he's gone.

00:27:30 --> 00:27:32

Then she covered back up.

00:27:34 --> 00:27:36

And she said, Is he here now?

00:27:37 --> 00:27:40

And the Prophet peace upon say, he's gone. She said, he's an angel.

00:27:41 --> 00:27:48

That's some heavy wisdom. Right? Because everyone's evil jindee He likes nakedness.

00:27:50 --> 00:27:51

Right? But angels have higher

00:27:53 --> 00:27:56

angels have the highest level of modesty.

00:27:57 --> 00:28:00

So so so she's now confirming to him, this is an angel.

00:28:02 --> 00:28:03

Okay, it's not something evil.

00:28:05 --> 00:28:35

And she's the first to believe the first to confirm, right set a base, you know, for Islam, which is very, very important concept that we have, especially for those who think that women do not have an important role to play in Islamic movement, right? This is the beginning without her. This is the beginning, right? This is the first anchor for Islam. Now within the household, was his cousin Ali ibn Abi Taalib Reddy. Lavon.

00:28:36 --> 00:28:41

Ali's father Abu Talib was the uncle of the Prophet peace be upon him.

00:28:42 --> 00:29:23

And he was noble. But when Hashem at that time, they didn't have that much wealth. It was the millions to millions, Abu Sufian they control the wealth. So Abu Talib was having some problems with wealth. So he went to his brother, Abdullah, father of the Prophet SAW Salem and said, Can you take my son? Just take him like, you know, families will do that, you know, take my child for a while, because I can't handle this right. So take Ali. So Ali is not actually the son of the Prophet, right? This is important to know that some people will go to extremes with Ali, right?

00:29:25 --> 00:29:35

And you even say the name and I'm not coming down on people's names, right? But But somebody said to me, you know, they were talking about a name and it said, the name was Akbar, Ali.

00:29:37 --> 00:29:43

Right. Maybe you heard somebody who had that name, and another one called us via Ali.

00:29:45 --> 00:29:48

Right? So Akbar Ali is the biggest ally

00:29:49 --> 00:29:56

and the other one is the smallest ally. And there was even one person whose name was Ali Akbar.

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

You ever heard that name before? Yes.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:13

Ali Akbar. But when it goes to the Bedouin, if you went to the Bedouins today, who have the toe heat, and you said this brother's name, you know, and it was a friend of mine from California, he was looking for names.

00:30:14 --> 00:30:26

And so, you know, when we were accepting Islam, you go into a name book, right? So he went into a name book. And he said, Oh, this sounds good, because we're always saying Allahu Akbar. I will say Ali Akbar.

00:30:27 --> 00:30:42

So he took it as his name. And I was in Riyadh. And in the masjid and I said, this is my friend, to a Bedouin, you know who I knew. I said, this is my friend has a DV Ali Akbar. The Bedouin looked at me said, Allah. Allahu Akbar.

00:30:44 --> 00:30:52

I said, Okay, wait a minute, man. This is my friend. His name is Ali Akbar. And the better we said, Allahu Akbar.

00:30:53 --> 00:31:02

Then I realized, actually, what do you mean? And he said, the name Ali Akbar means Ali is the greatest, right?

00:31:03 --> 00:31:09

And Allah is the Greatest. So I said, I see it now. His Tauheed came out, right?

00:31:10 --> 00:31:14

So he said, tell your friend call himself, Ali. Abdul Ganic.

00:31:16 --> 00:31:19

Something like that. So the brother changed his name to Ali Abdullah.

00:31:21 --> 00:31:22

But you see,

00:31:23 --> 00:31:28

the extremes in that when, you know, the real story. Ali was his cousin.

00:31:30 --> 00:31:34

And they took care because Khadija,

00:31:35 --> 00:31:37

you know, read the Rhodiola on how Khadija

00:31:39 --> 00:31:46

you know, she had wealth. You know, from the you know, the profit from the family of Abdullah they went to that site, and Khadija was wealthy

00:31:47 --> 00:31:49

so then they could take care of it.

00:31:51 --> 00:31:55

The next person to accept Islam is Abu Bakr Siddiq,

00:31:56 --> 00:32:11

brother allawah Oh, Buck Asante. Now some people tried to say he's the first to accept Islam in the first man. But that's not the first person who accepted Islam. It's the first adult male.

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

Because when Ali accepted Islam, according to the reports, he saw the Prophet Solomon Khadija praying, doing a type of prostration. And he's a young man, like nine years old, very intelligently. And so what are you doing? And they said, We're praying to Allah. And he said, I want to learn this.

00:32:33 --> 00:32:37

So then the Prophet said, Go back to your father, but he's still young, right?

00:32:38 --> 00:32:43

You got to ask permission. And Ali said, How wise he is. He said,

00:32:45 --> 00:32:53

Allah did not ask my father permission, like when I was born, it's not my father's permission. So if I submit to Allah has nothing to do with my father.

00:32:55 --> 00:33:06

Right, I'm submitting to Allah. And so he accepted our work, except I remember the category, those inclined to the belief in one God, that's Abu Bakr

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

he's inclined to it.

00:33:09 --> 00:33:15

Right, so the Prophet peace upon that went to him, and they say he accepted Islam with no hesitation.

00:33:16 --> 00:33:22

It was the fastest of anybody, whoever accepted Islam, no hesitation at all.

00:33:23 --> 00:33:27

Right. And within the household, there was also his servant,

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

Zaid ibn Hatha,

00:33:31 --> 00:33:37

who was the servant of the Prophet SAW Salem. He embraced early and then on Amon

00:33:38 --> 00:33:40

Wright, who was the

00:33:41 --> 00:34:00

the nurse or the female servant, you know, for the province of southern when, when when, you know, in his in his marriage, she was in the early family too. So, she was there from the early days. So, these are the first first people to believe Okay, so this is a wave now, coming in this is the first of those to believe

00:34:01 --> 00:34:02

Abu Bakr

00:34:03 --> 00:34:28

he got busy because he had contacts and he had the personality to take to take the message out. And he started to give Dawa so he's calling people amongst them was up there man urban health. So you hear some of these names are the law one was, it was man Ibn Mazoon for the law one. l Arcam. Ibn Abi ARCA.

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

These are the first people in this Abu Zubaydah ebuilds ELRA

00:34:35 --> 00:34:55

Radi Allahu Anhu. So these are some of the names of the first early Sahaba people that come and these other names who are starting to come in. This is the early days now, the early early days of Islam. And people are now coming into Islam. So now you have a message. It's just known to be the Prophet peace be upon him.

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

And, you know, people start to know about

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


00:35:01 --> 00:35:03

But then there's a reaction.

00:35:04 --> 00:35:23

And that is the thing when you gotta give Dawa the first call, there's going to be reaction because the kuffaar are not going to allow you to do this. And that's the reason why they're not going to allow Muslims to practice Islam, here in Canada, or anywhere else, you can forget it.

00:35:24 --> 00:35:26

Islamophobia is a reality.

00:35:28 --> 00:35:47

It's the reaction of shaitan and his forces. And it's something that we have to expect, because it happens to the best generation. What did they do? They tried to intimidate the provinces and intimidate him, tie things around his neck pour intestines all over him.

00:35:49 --> 00:35:56

put downs in his path, all kinds of things. They were trying to do it to him himself, then they wanted to use bribery.

00:35:57 --> 00:36:26

And this is what they will use today. And many people who have been out in the field, and they are teaching and whatever they will get, they will be intimidated. Right, bribery will come I'll give you a job. I'll give you a job at the university. And you can teach in a university, you will have you know, you'll have hundreds and 1000s of dollars. But you can't say certain you can't do doubt. Because as a university professor, you cannot be calling people to Islam.

00:36:27 --> 00:36:28

They are bribe you.

00:36:30 --> 00:36:31

Right. That's another way.

00:36:32 --> 00:37:03

All right, Daniel, negotiate as well. And the all these are stories that you can get from the Sierra. Right. But this is now this pivotal moment of these things happening, how Dawa begins and then they even tried to assassinate the prophets of salaam himself. They wanted to assassinate him. And when they were about to do it, on one occasion around the Kaaba Gibreel came in, in the form of a like a camel, an angry camel and approached

00:37:05 --> 00:37:15

Abu jehlen The people who wanted to kill the Prophet saw something. Okay, so this is the level of persecution that is coming. And as we learned last week

00:37:16 --> 00:37:51

with Abu Jamal and Alas, evenly violence *, right, they would attack the message in South the province of Solomon do whatever they possibly could to turn this message around. Okay, so these are the first phases now, you know, in how Islam is being spread, you know, right from the beginning. Okay, so these are the first phases of Dawa. All right, I want to open up the floor for any questions anybody might have. concerning these first phases, the concept of Wi Fi itself, of inspiration.

00:37:52 --> 00:37:57

And it's interesting because the word Ye

00:37:58 --> 00:38:07

is also used OHA is also used with bees, that the bees are inspired.

00:38:08 --> 00:38:14

And the bees going out to the flowers and making their nests is actually a form of why

00:38:15 --> 00:38:23

Mariam, the mother of ESA, may Allah be pleased with them both. She received a form of ye.

00:38:25 --> 00:38:31

Right, she was told to go out, you know, to the palm tree. So she, she received why as well.

00:38:33 --> 00:38:45

And that is an extreme position taken by some of the scholars, you might even run across it. Were some scholars, especially the ones who are like they call Doherty, who take everybody everything.

00:38:46 --> 00:38:49

Straight literal. You could say she's like a prophet.

00:38:51 --> 00:39:04

Right. But that is not the position, you know, of the mainstream, you know, scholar, but she did get inspiration the same way the bees and ants, there's other inspires, all forms of inspiration. There's another word called ill ham.

00:39:05 --> 00:39:20

Okay, which is another inspiration that all people. Okay, so any floor, the floor is open for any questions that you might have an concerning the first phase of the first contact floor is open for any questions. Yes.

00:39:21 --> 00:39:22

Can you talk more about

00:39:25 --> 00:39:30

your fine art and even in Western society to say Follow your heart? So

00:39:32 --> 00:40:00

how do we know? I mean, the study of the heart really is a is a very long study, we'll take a whole period, you know, and more to go through this. The point is, is that in a human being, you have intellectual intelligence, and you have emotional intelligence. Okay. And for a long time, scientists thought that human beings are like a computer like a hard drive, right? That basically your brain is what

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

runs you.

00:40:02 --> 00:40:12

But in the past 2030 years or so, or even maybe before that, they found out that a lot of the decisions that we make is not made in your brain.

00:40:13 --> 00:40:16

It's actually made in your emotions

00:40:17 --> 00:40:20

is what they say you have IQ and EQ.

00:40:21 --> 00:40:30

Right? You have your intelligence, they say, what's your IQ? So this person has got a high IQ. But emotionally, he's like a little baby.

00:40:32 --> 00:40:35

He has no emotional feelings.

00:40:36 --> 00:40:38

Like many of you say he's a nerd, right?

00:40:39 --> 00:40:44

So he's really good at computer, but yet no emotional field. What is this emotional feeling? That's the heart.

00:40:45 --> 00:40:47

Because your emotion reads the situation.

00:40:48 --> 00:40:57

It reads vibrations. So you might come in a situation and your mind says, do this, but your heart is telling you don't do it.

00:40:59 --> 00:41:13

Because emotionally, it's feeling vibrations. So it's something different, that's in us. It's like, it's like a conscience in a sense. It's but it's something you know, that is there within us. It's not the soul.

00:41:15 --> 00:41:18

Right, but it's like a conscience connected to the soul.

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

And it's hard to really,

00:41:22 --> 00:41:28

you know, describe it, you know, but but it is something, you know, that that is there, you know, within us.

00:41:29 --> 00:41:36

Okay, of the heart itself, it's very interesting thing. Some even say that the heart is stronger than the brain.

00:41:38 --> 00:41:48

And if you start looking at decisions people make some say even it's the it's the heart is making more decisions, your conscience, then your brain, your brain will feed information.

00:41:50 --> 00:41:57

And this is a struggle going on between artificial intelligence, right? Because the artificial intelligence might have all this information.

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

But it doesn't have the emotions, it doesn't have the EQ.

00:42:03 --> 00:42:05

They're trying to feed EQ into the robots

00:42:07 --> 00:42:15

as much as they can, but there's going to be new circumstances. They can't give it a soul, right? That's what they cannot give it.

00:42:16 --> 00:42:26

Okay, but but they want to, you know, to to fill it in, but they can't, that's something special to us, is the heart. Okay, any questions online? Anybody had?

00:42:29 --> 00:42:35

What can we do? What's the most widely accepted form of public racism and homophobia? What do you think of?

00:42:36 --> 00:42:38

Okay, Islamophobia is another discussion.

00:42:39 --> 00:42:42

Right? But basically speaking, you know, we have to resist it.

00:42:43 --> 00:42:50

And one of the best defense is an offense. So we have to not hide ourselves, we have to come out of ourselves.

00:42:51 --> 00:43:02

And go to the society explain what Islam is, you know, and deal with the society you can see and you'll see in the life of the Prophet, peace be upon him. Now, you'll learn strategies here.

00:43:03 --> 00:43:13

Okay, this is where your strategies are coming. That's why I say Sierra is really important thing. You know, a lot of people just read the Quran, they read the Hadith, but they don't know the story.

00:43:15 --> 00:43:23

They don't know how it was implemented into the lives of the people, which is also an example for us. So to know more about it, we got to go to CRM.

00:43:25 --> 00:43:25

Other question?

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

Okay. Any other general questions anybody has here? In the class?

00:43:32 --> 00:43:34

floor is open for any other questions.

00:43:35 --> 00:43:36

So now,

00:43:38 --> 00:43:41

at this point, persecution is happening.

00:43:42 --> 00:43:46

And they started to realize there are people accepting this religion.

00:43:47 --> 00:43:59

And it would generally come from the slaves from those who were oppressed, that they were accepting, but there were also people have so called notoriety and power, who are also accepting Islam.

00:44:01 --> 00:44:04

Okay, so it's changing now. And

00:44:06 --> 00:44:09

this is a pivotal moment in the first contact.

00:44:10 --> 00:44:17

Okay, what is this? Remember the list of the people that were there? One of them is an outcome, even a be outcome.

00:44:19 --> 00:44:24

Okay, and this is an artist's conception, about what Mecca

00:44:25 --> 00:44:27

could look like.

00:44:28 --> 00:44:45

Okay, and Allah knows best. And when you look at it, you will see, on the top, you'll see the home of Khadija, already low and high, you see that the warehouse was they take sort of identified we see that the cover in the middle, see the Kaaba,

00:44:46 --> 00:44:52

and then the zamzam well, so Khadija is home is up there and then Darren Nadella

00:44:53 --> 00:45:00

that was like their community set that was the town hall. So that is where the leaders would meet. It's like a

00:45:00 --> 00:45:15

Imagine this not what type of club, it's a club house. So this is where they used to meet to make the decisions. But it also became like the parliament too. Because remember when they chose a Lolita movie era, when they wanted to attack the process of using a network?

00:45:17 --> 00:45:52

Okay, so that's how it's set up. Then you have the home of Al Abbas, what are the uncles of the province of Salam over there. And then you can see the Kaaba with with the zamzam. And then the home of Omani, redolent. Sahaba. And then you have, you can see the Ben Ben who che but gate is like one of the gates how they would have entering into the city. Now, if you look closely on the right side there, and it's identified with the.so, that's sort of over by the mountain.

00:45:53 --> 00:45:58

So on three sides of this house here, is mountain.

00:46:00 --> 00:46:05

So it's sort of out. And this is the desert type of thing. This is the home of America.

00:46:07 --> 00:46:11

And he made a very strategic move.

00:46:12 --> 00:46:20

It's not emphasized in a lot of books. But I would consider this to be a very pivotal move that he made.

00:46:21 --> 00:46:24

And that move was he said, I will give my home

00:46:25 --> 00:46:27

as a base for the Muslims.

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

Because before that, if they wanted to make Salah

00:46:32 --> 00:46:50

however, or prayer gather, they had to go in corners, they had to go you can see the mountains that are around hide in caves. They didn't have a place to meet. But a lot of come then said you can use my house as a meeting place. Okay, so this was a few months after the revelation.

00:46:52 --> 00:47:01

Okay, had begun. So you could say, in a sense, I'm stretching it now. To put it in our context. This is like the first Islamic Center.

00:47:03 --> 00:47:04

This is an Islamic center now.

00:47:05 --> 00:47:09

Okay, is far away from the eyes of the Mexicans.

00:47:10 --> 00:47:15

He could meet his companions, they're, they're safe. And they could sit and talk

00:47:16 --> 00:47:19

and don't have to worry about somebody hiding behind the corner.

00:47:20 --> 00:47:23

Also, if somebody was interested in Islam,

00:47:25 --> 00:47:27

they could bring him to the house, shut the door.

00:47:29 --> 00:47:32

Right and talk to him. They could give Dawa there

00:47:33 --> 00:47:35

they could give information about Islam.

00:47:36 --> 00:47:48

So this is the first Islamic center pivotal move made by America. This is why you see many people, different parts of the world they'll name their sensor, Darryl outcome.

00:47:50 --> 00:48:03

Okay, because the outcome is meaning the home of el arco. That's where it comes from. It's literally his house. Okay? And what he sets is a precedent.

00:48:04 --> 00:48:08

It's a pivot that that he's making in the dollar.

00:48:09 --> 00:48:18

And that is, he is endowing he's giving his property. He's given it to the Muslims use my place.

00:48:20 --> 00:48:42

Okay, there's no revelation behind this. There's no order, there's no command, Allah inspired him, to give it to him, take my house and use it. Okay, he dedicated it to the Muslim community. So people would come in there in the night, in the day, Allah knows best because they don't have details like he may have had, he probably had another house where he keep his family.

00:48:44 --> 00:48:49

Right, but this becomes the Islamic center. And on the outside, all you're going to see is a door.

00:48:50 --> 00:48:57

Nobody knows what's going on in the inside. That is a critical thing. And many of our communities.

00:48:58 --> 00:49:09

For instance, you're in a part of Latin America, you're in a urine Island. You know, you're far in Scandinavia, one of the first things that needs to be done is to establish a base.

00:49:11 --> 00:49:13

You establish some sort of base.

00:49:14 --> 00:49:16

Right? People may start in a community center.

00:49:18 --> 00:49:22

In America, when Islam was being spread in the inner cities of America,

00:49:23 --> 00:49:26

the brothers and sisters would get what they call a storefront.

00:49:27 --> 00:49:45

It's a storefront. So when you're traveling along the main streets now, basically, you see that Danforth, right? The whole Toronto, right. Then you see all along the floor, and then fourth, you see storefronts. So the brothers would insist this would take one of these storefronts, and they would say, Islamic center.

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

Or in the beginning, they wouldn't say anything.

00:49:50 --> 00:49:52

They just might put a star and crescent on the door.

00:49:53 --> 00:49:59

And people go inside. So this is the concept. This is a precedent that's being set. And it's an

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

One thing for any young community that you run into, they have to establish a base of operations. Okay. And later on, the Prophet saw a sudden them now

00:50:13 --> 00:50:18

through inspiration from Allah because Allah is using the Companions, right?

00:50:19 --> 00:50:36

He establishes what is called work of the pluralist Oh cough. So the work of is a concept in Islam. It's an endowment of the assets for the benefit of the community. So somebody has two or three houses, somebody has land,

00:50:38 --> 00:50:40

and they say, life is short.

00:50:41 --> 00:50:43

I'm going to give this land to the community.

00:50:44 --> 00:50:45

But when you say work of

00:50:47 --> 00:50:55

it comes from work offer, which means to stop. So in Arabic, if you say to somebody stop me say PIF stop.

00:50:57 --> 00:51:00

So work off means it's the property stopped.

00:51:01 --> 00:51:03

So you cannot sell it.

00:51:04 --> 00:51:10

You cannot be making a business in there. It is now the property of the Muslim community.

00:51:11 --> 00:51:24

It is dedicated toward the Muslims. And it should stay like this dedicated toward the Muslims. And the Prophet SAW Salem now encouraged the believers to do this because they were in a state of poverty.

00:51:26 --> 00:51:32

And the famous one of the most famous for our work of is with men Ibn offene. And this is

00:51:33 --> 00:51:36

the Roma is the well of the Roma

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

better or worse man, this is a conception in Medina, if you go to Medina now, they have built a place trying to make it seem like what in the where it was. There's a place there in the desert, it looks like

00:51:52 --> 00:51:57

so so they were actually reenacted this well, and you know,

00:51:58 --> 00:52:08

with men Read the last one, he bought this from a yahoodi you know who owned it? And then but yeah, he would not give him all honesty. SoCal take half of the wealth.

00:52:10 --> 00:52:24

Right, and you do the other half. And so the people started taking their water at the time when it was man. So they had like, my day is yours. My day is Wednesday, your day is Thursday. So on Wednesday was man held everybody's drinking the water

00:52:26 --> 00:52:33

on Thursday, when the other owner had it, nobody's drinking. So then, yeah, he got sense. And he said, Okay, take it off.

00:52:35 --> 00:52:41

He's a businessman. So he said, I'll make more money selling it to you, then nobody's drinking my water.

00:52:42 --> 00:52:49

So then was man took over the whole? Well, that's a reenactment of the well, which if you go to Medina, Inshallah, you can see it.

00:52:51 --> 00:52:57

And this became welcome. So peep Muslims could come there and drink water.

00:52:59 --> 00:53:24

And that was a crucial thing in these days, right? Very crucial thing, you're providing water for the people. So this became, you know, an important institution within the community. And they maintained it and afterwards man's time, they kept the work of an Up until now, that property around there is kept by the government, it's still given for charity.

00:53:25 --> 00:53:44

And this falls in the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Salem, where he's saying that when a person dies, everything stays the only thing you got is three things that can follow you in the grave. Right, one of them is Sacaton, giardia

00:53:45 --> 00:53:55

and that is charity. That is Giardia is running right. So this work of is like giardia, right? Because people whose man is still getting blessings from this.

00:53:57 --> 00:54:00

How important work of is right everybody should consider it right?

00:54:01 --> 00:54:02

Consider it seriously.

00:54:04 --> 00:54:16

This work of now. And the second point is ilunion Tough RB and that is knowledge, which is a benefit. So the person writes a book, they may they may even make a tape

00:54:17 --> 00:54:20

they may do something, the knowledge where people can benefit from

00:54:22 --> 00:54:24

I don't know how much people can benefit from tick tock

00:54:25 --> 00:54:39

right. But some people are tick talking because this younger generation all they know is tick tock right. But some of these things they come and they stay for a little while and they're gone back in space. But whatever knowledge can stay there.

00:54:41 --> 00:54:47

You get it in your grave. And the last is Wellington Salah yet ruler, and that is a child who will make dua for him.

00:54:49 --> 00:54:56

So that child is continually making dua for the father and the mother these three things right. So this is sadaqa terjadi. This is one

00:54:58 --> 00:54:59

very important institution.

00:55:01 --> 00:55:09

And this is a pivotal moment. It pivots Islam, right? It changed from there just Musa Darphin completely. They're weak people.

00:55:10 --> 00:55:19

They don't own anything. They don't have anything. And now it starts changing. A lot of come makes the move. They have an Islamic center.

00:55:20 --> 00:55:41

Right and then they're able to develop. Look at the people who accepted Islam. There it is said that so haip members who haber Rumi, right? So hey was important. Sahabi. So he was coming. That's the one they say the Roman right, because he was white skinned. He was actually an Arab with blond hair and blue eyes. But he lived in Constantinople for a period of time. He could speak Greek.

00:55:43 --> 00:55:44

So they just called him romish.

00:55:45 --> 00:55:47

Like he's a Roman, right, European.

00:55:48 --> 00:56:17

But so hey, when he was about to accept Islam, he had heard about Daraa Alka through his context, and he went to dollar outcome. And as he was going toward the door, he looked and next to him was a ma Ibn Yasin Rhodiola. These are famous companions, right? Because remember, amaz mother is yes, as Somalia and the mother is yes, you're right. The family of the acid. The first Shahid is the mother.

00:56:19 --> 00:56:24

So Amar is now they look at each other and these two they go in and our outcome.

00:56:25 --> 00:56:30

See how important that places? Omar Ibaka top radula one.

00:56:32 --> 00:56:56

He now when he wants to kill the prophet, and then he found he finds that his sister has is reading Quran accepted Islam and kebab is there. One of the people who's learned and our article, okay, then he hits his sister gets shamed. And then kebab comes back out, he listens to the Quran. What did they say go to Dollar outcome.

00:56:58 --> 00:57:11

And when he goes to dollar outcome, he describes that he's put his head sort of in the door, and the promises alum himself took him by his beard, and drew him toward his face, and almost said, I felt like a child.

00:57:13 --> 00:57:16

And the Prophet SAW and then said, What do you want? He said, I came to accept Islam.

00:57:17 --> 00:57:27

And the companion says, You Allahu Akbar. Because this is Omar right? When Omar accepted, Hamza accepted, then they could go outside and pray.

00:57:28 --> 00:57:33

We see how pivotal or Arakan was pivotal place

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

and it changes.

00:57:36 --> 00:57:44

Okay, so this is the concept of Awqaf. Now, the Oh cough develops

00:57:45 --> 00:57:53

in the time of the whole of Russia in the great companions leaders, the time or the Omega dynasty.

00:57:55 --> 00:58:12

It is there. The Oh coffee institution, the time of the Bassets it is there. Probably one of the most visible tangible forms of cuff is what happened with the Ottomans. And this is when the Ottoman Turks, you know, embraced Islam and

00:58:13 --> 00:58:34

they started to develop and eventually they became the Khalifa when the Baghdad fell in 1258. There was no Khalifa it went to Egypt with the mom Luke's prayer for a period of time and then the Ottomans took over and they became the Khalifa

00:58:35 --> 00:58:39

Okay, so now they develop what is called kuliah.

00:58:41 --> 00:59:19

And this is a Ottoman Turkish Arabic in Arabic today, if you say Kalia like when I studied Medina was kuliah, to Dawa who Sula de means college right. But for Kalia in Ottoman Turkish, right it was a complex of buildings, right which was associated, you know, with their architecture had a masjid, you know, it had you know, it was a walk of, okay. Now, what did they do with this? The Ottomans would come into an area. Now this is this is dollar, right? They would come into an area and they would investigate the area.

00:59:20 --> 00:59:38

And because walk off is there, there's people who are giving money towards walk off. So they would now establish maybe a prayer or place to pray. In this area, they little center. Now they investigate the people. What are the people need? So in many cases, they have make a dresser

00:59:39 --> 00:59:41

and they do a clinic.

00:59:42 --> 00:59:45

They do a clinic because people need doctors, right?

00:59:47 --> 00:59:50

They do a soup kitchen because people need food.

00:59:52 --> 00:59:59

They do a home mom, which is a place where you can start washing yourself because people accept the slime you got to be clean right and

01:00:00 --> 01:00:06

charitable services would develop around the masjid by dresser center.

01:00:07 --> 01:00:14

And then at one stage, they would say, on the side, set up a bizarre,

01:00:15 --> 01:00:21

set up a strip of land and get the business people to come in and sell their goods.

01:00:22 --> 01:00:28

And that becomes a bazaar. And from there, there's a city. That's how the Ottoman cities developed.

01:00:29 --> 01:00:39

So if you go to places like Bosnia, you go to Albania, you go all around, you know, Anatolia, other places. This is how they developed. Right? Work.

01:00:41 --> 01:00:59

Right. That's how they spread Islam. And this one is Sudima. Nia is a picture, when now you can see the masjid now and got a real big right. But you can see the complex around it. It started off as a small place. And it starts dealing with the needs of the people.

01:01:01 --> 01:01:04

What is the basis of it? What

01:01:06 --> 01:01:27

is giving endowment for Islam? Very important move that was made, you know, by the Muslims. Okay. So this is a pivotal moment that we're looking at, in the first calls, you know, to Islam. floor is open for any questions that anybody may have. Concerning Raka.

01:01:30 --> 01:01:46

Online, yeah, read that. All that remains of lightning is dreams. How do we reconcile with this model? How do we reconcile this regardless to claim to have dreams come true? Yeah. So So what it is the hadith is, say a root Yes, sadaqa.

01:01:47 --> 01:01:48

It's a true dream.

01:01:49 --> 01:01:57

That comes to a believer. So it's not anybody's dream. He's dreaming about Dracula, or something like a horror movie that he just saw.

01:01:58 --> 01:02:14

That's not why he wrote, yes, sadhaka is a is a is a true dream that comes to a believer. And the thing is that you can't say that you know that you had a dream. And so until it happens, right? You don't really know until it actually happens.

01:02:15 --> 01:02:28

But something is there, you can get some sort of inspiration from it. But you can't publicly do it. That's the problem. Some people go to a so called chef, you know, whatever. And they say, you know, what do you think I should do?

01:02:29 --> 01:02:35

And he said, Come back tomorrow. He said, I had a dream last night. So you got to watch out for that. Right?

01:02:36 --> 01:02:37

You got to watch out.

01:02:39 --> 01:03:03

It can be you know, commercialized. But there is a sadaqa that's what's left of the worry, that can come to believe us. It's Ill, Ill Hamis inspiration. People can be inspired, you know, by by this by by these different things in different floors open for any other questions anybody has concerning this pivotal point in Islamic history. Floors open.

01:03:08 --> 01:03:09

Anything else online?

01:03:11 --> 01:03:18

Okay, so this is a very important point. And again, those are more involved in Dawa

01:03:19 --> 01:03:22

you know, it's really crucial thing

01:03:23 --> 01:03:28

to do do something like this. And, you know, I can remember, there was an enlightened

01:03:30 --> 01:03:34

that, you know, I don't want to go into the details, but there was an enlightened person who bought a property.

01:03:35 --> 01:03:39

Okay, he bought the property. He had three stories.

01:03:40 --> 01:03:45

And he said, you know, he checked the people who lived in the area, what do they need, they said they need doctors.

01:03:47 --> 01:03:56

Because, you know, the doctors are gone. They need medical help. So he got some doctors, and on the first floor, they had free medical service.

01:03:57 --> 01:04:05

Okay, so the people would come and get their service. And then, but then they would say, inevitably, somebody would say why, you know, why are you doing this?

01:04:06 --> 01:04:08

And they say, because we're Muslims.

01:04:09 --> 01:04:14

So okay. Inevitably, somebody will ask the question, what is the Muslim?

01:04:15 --> 01:04:19

Because you want to know why these people are. He said, Go on the second floor.

01:04:20 --> 01:04:23

On the second floor is information about Islam.

01:04:24 --> 01:04:32

And you can read and tea and coffee and is there and whatever. Inevitably, somebody would say, I want to be a Muslim. They say go to the third floor.

01:04:33 --> 01:04:47

On the third floor, other people have Dawa. And they can help you become Muslim. So hundreds of people, people accepting Islam accepted Islam like this because they use their wealth in a strategic way.

01:04:48 --> 01:05:00

That's the best form when I say this law respects to the brothers and sisters who stand on the corner with you know, flyers and say like I'm doing the dollar, right. In some cases that

01:05:00 --> 01:05:00

It needs to be done.

01:05:01 --> 01:05:07

You know, sometimes you need someone to put the message out. But the real dollar today is not that

01:05:08 --> 01:05:11

the real Dawa is meeting people in what they need.

01:05:13 --> 01:05:14

Right and doing it for Allah.

01:05:15 --> 01:05:17

That's going to be the most effective

01:05:21 --> 01:05:25

it's every I mean, there's some I don't want to come down on certain people, you know, who are doing things right.

01:05:29 --> 01:05:33

I want to keep it private, right? Do you have an idea where it is?

01:05:38 --> 01:05:39

It was in Guyana.

01:05:42 --> 01:05:42


01:05:45 --> 01:05:46

Any other questions? Anybody else?

01:05:51 --> 01:05:51


01:05:54 --> 01:06:14

Someone else? Yes, you can. You can dedicate something for your mother or your father. For somebody you can do that. Definitely. See, people when somebody passes away, you know, people say like, what can I do? And they think that the only thing they can do is come for 40 After 40 days and read Quran, you like that? And then forget about the person?

01:06:15 --> 01:06:20

No, man, this is what does it do you see the three things that's gonna follow that person?

01:06:21 --> 01:06:25

Sada cotton giardia, do something for that person. So it will go with it.

01:06:26 --> 01:06:29

Dedicate a book, dedicate knowledge to that person.

01:06:30 --> 01:06:38

Make ombre, if the person has made ombre and you made it already, or you made * already do what they call Hodge Bedell

01:06:39 --> 01:06:40

to within the name of that person.

01:06:42 --> 01:06:43


01:06:44 --> 01:06:49

And, you know, so this is this is really the best form of, of doubt

01:06:51 --> 01:06:52

during the

01:06:53 --> 01:06:56

caliphate, and I know maybe

01:06:57 --> 01:07:09

afterwards as well, there was a trend that the wives of prominent people, especially the philosopher, would be like initiators of like, in terms of how to shave his wife. I think. That's right.

01:07:10 --> 01:07:23

And also, like, there's so many women like, across the hall. That's right, you'll see many women were involved in this type of thing. Fatima fevrier Cara Wien, Masjid University in Morocco.

01:07:24 --> 01:07:39

And there's a number of cases, you know, like this. So, okay, so walk off is a way that everybody can, you know, do something. And it's really important, you know, think about your wealth, and how you're going to spend your wealth because sometimes we just have wealth laying around.

01:07:40 --> 01:07:48

And it just lays there and we're passing out of this world, right? So it's better to do something that's going to go with you.

01:07:49 --> 01:07:51

And this is one of the possible ways of doing

01:07:54 --> 01:08:10

so inshallah we will continue on, you know, with our pivotal moments, you know, in Islamic history. And for those online if everybody here Have a safe journey home, Walker dot 100 robola to me, was salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
