hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala rasulillah alameen Nabina Muhammad Allah Allah, he was certainly as you may know, but
today, it seems I get the short end of the stick. Because after shift camoes lecture, you have to sit for another hour, you know, so it's difficult. So, bear with us, it's not easy to sit for a long time I know this. But hopefully this next lecture will find enjoyable. It's one that I enjoyed preparing. And the funny thing is how I got the title, the brothers changed the title actually of the lecture that was huson.
It's actually so we can be like them. And how can we how can we be like this haba. But what his point was when he said he and he we can't be like them is is a misconception that a lot of people have seen that we cannot be like this haba in the day we live in. So he wanted something from the title, but the title I had chosen originally was so we can be like them. And the funny thing is that I got this title, because we were sitting down with one of the brothers, and we're going to do a TV show about how I became Muslim. And we went really deep into what we were going to say, and any of the records and obviously some of the stuff that we have done before Islam we don't want to mention
when we talk about these things, so we went into things and we even talked about something about music before Islam, and a type of music from the area of the DC area where I'm from the only we know I'm not gonna say the name of the music so the guys don't go and look on the internet. What is this music? And they most people don't know it, only people from our area. So one of the famous songs was they took a Michael Jordan commercial, if I could be like Mike, and they made it into a song. These people are this band. And I said look how we were before Islam and our Islam Who do you want to be like, we want to be like the Sahaba so this title popped into my head so we can be like them and I
started to research and gather information on how we could be like this habit and now it's become a series. So we're just going to do in this lecture, inshallah, the introduction for this series inshallah, perhaps if I stay longer in Toronto, we can finish it as a series in shallow abanico attallah. And today's lecture, we talk about the Sahaba these are the ones that Allah subhanho wa Taala said in several Ayah to know Quran, that he has been pleased with him of your love and that he has been pleased with him. And also, these are the people that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught himself. He taught them Islam, and he raised himself. And they were the ones who stood
by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, through thick and thin, and they fought and they died for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and for Islam and for Islam to reach me and you.
the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu. They are the ones who implemented as we'll see now, the examples implement the Koran in their lives. Now like us, we just read the Quran for burqa for the blessings, and we do not what implement in our lives. So today we want to talk about the characteristics that made the Sahaba so unique, what made them so unique, because if we want to be like them, we have to see what made them so special.
And the first of these things is the, the greatness of the order or the command of
Allah subhanho wa Taala and the messengers of the Lord send them in their hearts. And if a law order them to commanded them to do something, or have his messengers and listen to come in and do something immediately what implement this in their lives. And that's because as I said, when they read the verses in the Quran, for example, when Allah subhana wa tada says, Yeah, you know, up to la hora Sula, who
want to test in our own when Allah subhana wa tells them or tells us yeah, you know, oh, you will believe, obey Allah and His messenger and not turn away from them while you're listening. And another verse where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, women can only move men in one minute in either cada la hora, Sulu, Amman Ania Coloma Pharaoh to memory him, that it is not up to a believing male or female. If Allah and His Messenger order for something to have what their own opinion in their affair, and when they say la hora Sula, who *a Bala, Bala, Medina, that whoever disobeys on his messenger he has clearly gone astray. And also they knew that the only way for the Muslims to find
the Rama at the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The only true way was through obeying Allah and His Messenger as Allah subhanho wa Taala said no hold on wealthy or law her word Rasool Allah Allah come to her moon obey Allah and His messenger. Perhaps that you will find the Rama the mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala and I'm going to mention a few stories to look at the implementation of this from the sahab it'll be love on him. First of all, when Hummer was made Hara
who knows was coming the alcohol was
Made haram immediately in the beginning of Islam Who can tell me? No, it wasn't. I can see you guys nice you can you can raise your hands and we have a nighttime I can't see you.
So now it was not made me Who can tell me how many stages it went through before it was hot on
three. Excellent Who can tell me the first stage?
Don't be drunk by praying play the second
Okay, tell me.
Yeah, first is refining it, you know, they can introduction to it that it's evil in this. The second is what the brother mentioned. Not when you're praying. So the first thing it kind of tells you to stay away from it because it has evil in it. So the Muslims knew then it's you stay away. You know, however, it's not it's not an easy thing for somebody in that society where they always get drunk and they always drink however, the second step was what that you cannot let up a double slot Quantum sakara that you cannot pray while you're drunk. So what does this mean? When is the one time you can get drunk? Okay, if you get drunk out this episode that is it. Okay? At that time obviously
not because you could have snuck although you're gonna be drunk it's not the door from the outside you can't get drunk from outside of the motive you can't get drunk all the time. You can get drunk after this I was when after Isha.
And then the the the third verse came to what make the alcohol hot. I'm at
it completely Haram. And the hell Angelman? tahune at the end of the verse as a habit. So are you finishing this a habit into Hey anantha Hey, now that we have finished, we have finished. And as it came in some of the narrations, whether it's authentic or not, that's another story. But it's it's a famous narration in the books of syrup, where they actually were, they poured all of the amount of alcohol into the streets of Medina and with so much of it, that it was just flowing through the streets as it came in that in the narrations in the book of books of Sierra, also another story
of hammer acid. Does anybody ever heard this name before Hamilton as it
were this places or what is it? What was the significance?
By after the Battle of offered
who won the battle of boyhood?
I Catherine, the non Muslims, they won the battle of boyhood even though Muslims benefited greatly from some of the some of the things that happened to them and the Druze in the river that they took from this war, we benefited greatly from it as Muslims, but the victory was for them. So what is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam do? He ordered them to get ready the next day immediately after they have been defeated. And the emotional defeat is the greatest defeat of all, but on top of all that they have been injured. They've been stabbed by sores, they've been sliced, they've been hit by arrows and hit by spheres. And they're injured. their wounds are wrapped up. And they're emotionally
they don't feel good, especially because they had just been victorious in butter.
And they had raised what their Eman and raised their their spirits. And now all of a sudden, they lose this battle. And they lost this battle because they didn't obey the command of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam ordered them to go out and to get prepared again for war. And to follow the coup for me to let them know that we're coming after you obviously go forwards faster, and we're back to America because they didn't want to fight again until they came to a place called Hamad Al Asad. And if you go back to
earlier on verse 172, to 174, from the beginning, where loss upon what Allah says Allah is the Jebel Allah he mean by the mouseover hamanaka. Those who what they have obey the law and His Messenger after they had been wounded. And imagine this when it's it's not an easy thing to do, you're wounded. You're in an emotional state, you don't want to, you know, you'll feel good. And all of a sudden you have to go up. They didn't say it's not let us rest, you know, tomorrow, maybe and next month, it's rest is get ready immediately, without even thinking or saying anything. He said, Let's go we're going after them. They immediately got up, got their weapons ready, got on their horses and
their cameras and immediately went for battle because they weren't obeyed the command of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The second thing that made this habit so unique was their truthfulness in their Eman. And what is the truthfulness any man come? How do we know the truthfulness and the man through the what the statements and the actions to the statements and actions because a lot of Muslims they say, any word of truth in our mind, we love Allah we love his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but we see through the implementation, that something else. We don't see that reality to the implementation. And if it lets us look into this verse, and sort of that hasher, we're also kind of attalla. He talks about the marine Alfa coral Mahajan in Rio, de memoriam, the photojojo, poor mahogany those
who may who migrated were from
and they were forced out of the lands and out of their wealth.
They were forced out. Why did they go what was their goal? They could have stayed some state back even it was at the time for them to stay back. Some of them did stay back. I was a very small small amount but there was a few so why did they go and leave all the all of their money?
Because there's a loss of what Allah says in the verse. Yep Tijuana problem in a lava with water. They are seeking the bounty of a law and laws pleasure for him to be pleased with them. While en su una la hora sola, that they are what they strive or to be victorious for a law and to help the religion of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala said about them who like a homosassa own barely. These are the are the truthful ones. And another verse where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Meena regeneron sada, palma de la Halle, they're from the believers are those who are true and the covenant that they have taken to Allah subhanaw taala, to
the religion of Allah and true men. So they were truthful, and they're a man. And let's look at some examples of this as well some implementation of this principle. And it's even another who is the uncle of who does anybody know, we should have like prizes your husband was passing. So you can pass out, you know, get get the audience involved. Does anybody know you'll get the educational if you have anything next to me, they give to you, unless you have another who is his uncle of who?
A famous or hobby
by young people. So just the audience, just the young guys. Pay attention to young guys. So we're talking a famous Sahabi named Ennis even What
is it? Malik sent and received Malik, and honestly, another was his uncle. And it's him another, as many of the Sahaba missed the war of what a better, the better better? Why did they miss the Battle of butter because they didn't know there's going to be a battle. And about 313 roughly in that neighborhood had went out to get the caravan and I was up on the caravan brush. And they didn't think there was going to be a battle so all of them didn't go anything over 300 minutes that's sufficient for a caravan it has 40 minutes. So everybody didn't have to go. But when they knew there was this great battling but they're all of them they were sad because they missed what this battle
and then he said to the suit allies and allies tell them as if nothing he said will lie he that if I get them to the chance Allah will see what I will do on the battlefield. So after the battle started and then Muslims were victorious, and then at the beginning of the war and then they were defeated at the end and receive another or some of the Sahaba that they heard there was a was a rumor and we must we read the Sierra who just read it for Buttercup we want to benefit from the Sierra even in the days we live in and look at the effects of rumors and how they spread lies about Muslims they in the media What are we now and the media
say don't be scared terrorists or terrorist on the on the media and now they know they're brand new pictures of these guys in handcuffs and sleeper cells and they scare people how does it affect perfection you get down to non Muslim they're scared of us Oh my god it's one of them you know you walk into a public place now with your business oh my god it's him it's been Latin. So now there are people are scared because of these rumors and his lies that are spread so this habit and this is all if you look even How could a shadow used to fight Islam also the the non Muslims, they use the same ways different ways, but it's the same
same types of ways that they use to what are the same tactics to what discourage people about Islam? So what do they do they use the rumor they know to defeat the Muslims emotionally just like they have done today Muslims are scared now because he's a terrorist. No everything's What do I have to be like this and like that, I have to only practice half of my Islam. So people will think I'm missing on the terrorism that so now, they said to the prophet SAW list of them had died. They said Mohammed is dead. So listen, this is what the Cooper said. So a lot of people when they heard this, the beginning of Islam, the beginning of the of the Islamic State in Medina, this affected them in a
negative way. So they went they went back to Medina they put down their swords, and they went back to Medina. So nscp another rhodiola one. Remember at the beginning, the story he said will lie. That if I find the chance to go to battle for Islam, again, Allah we'll see what I will do on the battlefield. So he immediately said Aloma to Butler. He like him. I found out today that he was he is free from what these people have done from returning to Medina. And he went because he didn't become a Muslim from Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he became muslim for Allah because Islam is the religion of truth. So even if the rumor was true, that means it doesn't mean he's gonna leave Islam.
So he immediately went to the battlefield and fought like a lion robiola one and two, he was what hit and stabbed and sliced by swords and arrows and spears over 80 times well below one. When they came to identify him Who is this from the Shahada. He was, they could not identify he was his body was so badly mutilated, that they couldn't
What identify him. The only person who was able to identify him was who? His sister from his banana from his fingertips. She knew who he was because she knew something on his fingertips. You see, that is my brother. Well, the laquan also from the truthfulness, let's look at the story of the Arabi, the Bedouin, who came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he was passing out, some of them to the Muslim and he was giving people of the goats or whatever they had at that time. And he gave this Arabi something, after he had just become Muslim, he's a new Muslim. And he said, I did not give you beta. I did not give you allegiance for that. He said, I gave you been out to receive an arrow right
here, and his throat.
After this, he went, and there was another battle that started so he went into battle, and he was hit, and the same exact place that he pointed. So they brought him back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And he looked at his surprise, he said, uh, who is it really? Is it really him? And he said, It's him. jasola So he said, soda, soda Cola, that he was truthful so Allah was truthful with him, and giving him that what she wanted. And then the prophets I send them he said, a lot of them had Abu and he said to a lot smarter, this is your servant, Clara gemo hajian on FISA bielek beaucoup de la shahidan one, Mashallah, Derek, that this is your servant. He migrated in your path for your cause, and he was killed as a Shaheed and I testify against that and he preyed on him alayhi salatu salam, also, from the things that made this a habit so unique and so special, was the desert in the dunya.
this dunya didn't really mean anything to them. And they looked at the Quran when Allah subhanho wa Taala, says, Paul, Matera dunya khaleel. Will, Pharaoh to Pharaoh Lima taco, that say, the pleasures of this dunya are very little, and the author of the Hereafter is more for those who are God fearing this type of verse, they implement it in their lives. And also, they learn from their teacher, our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who had no care of anything of this dunya he didn't care for anything of this dunya. And even he used to sleep on hassio. You know, it has serious looks like little bamboo sticks put together. They still use it in some countries. I know they have in Sudan, I
don't know about other countries who will use it, but they still have it. And he was just the one this is not to slam and leave marks on his side when he would sleep. And they want to give him a nice bed and he could have had that done. Yeah, he was the ruler. He was the president. He was everything into the Muslim nation. He was the General of the Army, the Imam of the masjid, the he was everything, the judge everything. And with this, he didn't want anything from the union. Why? Because he wanted his heart to be attached with were with an arcade with the hereafter. So they learn from their beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and that's why Abdullah Massoud la De La
Hoya and he said to the tambourine to those who the followers of the Sahaba he said, what they love and the anthem, actor mln menace hobby Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that barely you do more in deeds than the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pay attention. This is and this is Abdullah Massoud, one of the most knowledgeable of the Sahaba. He's telling them that from you, He who does more deeds than the Sahaba. Is that possible? It's possible if you look at some of the tambourine, and how they used to know make the MLA and stuff they used to do from and it's really, something amazing. And they learn from the madrasa of Nebraska from the School of the
prophethood. From those who took from the province racism directly, and they strove, they strove very hard. But he said, Well, I can no home asadmin come. But even though you have more deeds, that they are what they are better than you. Why, what is the reason he says it'll be lower? And he said,
can we as head of Indonesia will feel that they have more suited in the dunya. And they have more desire and the alpha in the hereafter than you. So Panama. And then
if you look at some of the scholarships that mentioned, if you want to know the reality of somebody's desire in the Hereafter, look at it in the dunya. If you're somebody who's attached, the dunya, all the latest things in pleasure, the duty, he has to have it, and he strives behind it. And his whole life is full of what just making money and doing it, it's okay to make money. It's a good thing. Not saying that, but when your heart is attached, that's your main thing. And you put your eye back down what on the side, as it's a part time thing, your worship, and the religion is a part time thing. And it means just money, money, and all the new things. And you'll see these people who
replace their furniture, twice a year, every eat, they have to have some new furniture in the house and this and they want all the new things and all you know is just in the soup all the time they're going and buying and this he's really attached to dunya. So somebody like this, that is proof. It's very it's evidence that his heart is not really attached to now, but if you see somebody even if he has money
I've seen very rich people who are like this, they have money, but they don't care about the dunya. They give sadaqa. They give this they build massages. They do whatever they do with their money, and they make money, it's important to have money. And then Muslim were encouraged to be businessmen and to make money and to support our families. So this is something we must do. But women, this money should not be where in our hearts, even if we have a lot of it. Also, it's important to point out when it talks about the zoo, what is the zoo, because there's a big misconception of the zoo. shefali Tamia Rahim Allah He mentioned that anything that does not help you reach the Hara, leaving
it is from childhood. And anything that does not help you reach the era you live in, this is from the truth. Now give you an example. Now, anyone you want to go to work, for example, and what when you drive your own car, or you go on public transportation. Now somebody says, actually this car on the cars is, you know, from the dunya, I would have, I don't want to have this, I just want to be nosy. And I'll just, I'll just ride on a bus or something like this. What is riding on a bus do for your mind, and what is writing in your own car, which one is better for your email?
Most likely a car because you're not going to see the things you might see on the bus. First of all, you're not going to hear the things you're going to hear on the bus, you can listen to the Quran in your own car. So listen to music, wherever you might be listen to another audio, the dirty things it's some of the non Muslim might want to say. So our car is better for you and your man, so isn't leaving this is not from Zurich. But when it comes to now, for example,
you know, you can get the latest BMW or you can just get a regular car, whatever a family car, a minivan, you can say this is the minivan is enough for me in life, and I don't need the Mercedes. So this could be considered from leaving, even though it's okay to drive a Mercedes. If I had money, I'd buy one myself. But leaving it as it is recommended. In addition, if you do that, it's a good thing. Also, for example, now
has an he wants to work on the brothers here that would have the sensor when he's in 2011 or 2012. Or they would have the new century here was the goal. So on the poster, but I forgot it was 2011 or 2012 12. Okay. Now has said he's the manager. So he wants to save money. He said I have a way for us to save money this year. He said we're going to what we're not going to when it comes wintertime we're not going to use the heat in the machines want to save money as much money in case everybody has a coat. So let's just make sure that this year.
We don't turn the heat so we can save money for our future projects. And just from zoo. Why? Because there are people who don't want to come to the budget know. Secondly, when it comes to money, you're going to be what? And they're not going to want to pray they're not going to find the horseshoe. And there's a lot Salinas is not from Zurich, and you have to pay attention to a lot of people now they'll say yes he did. We just won't have anything from the junior. Even if it's something from the junior that helps you. It helps you in your salad it helps you become closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala leaving this is not considered from the dunya. The fourth thing which made the Sahaba so
special and so unique, is their unique bravery, their unique bravery, they were very brave. And not just not just not just bravery, unique bravery, something special. And who did they learn this from? They learned from our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and a story where there was a big boom, outside of Medina made big a big noise, a big boom. And it scared everybody inside inside Medina. And nobody knew what it was. And the people were hesitant. You're new you're a new Muslim state, you could be under attack now. So they're reluctant to what to come and see what it is. So but eventually they come out of their houses. And they look around you know who's gonna go see what
the voice what this big boom was.
Then they find our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam coming back from the exact place where the noise was riding his horse without a saddle and he has a sword on his side. And he tells him it was nothing was nothing you would not be feared to have fear after this day. So now you can see the president of what of the of the country the leader of everything at that time. Imagine today's leaders what what they would do what they heard this outside, you know, he could go down in the basement and you know that the shelter and tell his troops to go see what that was immediate without even hesitating. He immediately got on his horse and went straight to the woods. He's a very brave
man. And also, they said about our beloved Prophet sallallahu Sallam at the time of battle and in war, if it became difficult, we will what protect ourselves behind the Prophet system, everybody would have been near him because he was a very fierce and brave warrior to a celeb.
Also, if you look at the story of Romeo hammermill Ansari or the LA one, the famous story where the prophecies enemies told them, como la agenda outdoors, similar to
he told them to stand up in the time of war, and be for what a paradise which is, which is like that of the heavens and the earth. So maybe it'll be a lot more
He said, Jenna odd to have similar to a lot, that a paradise that's with is like the heavens and earth? And he said yes, he said, bucking by him. And he said, What makes you say bucking buggin? He said, hoping from Allah subhanho wa Taala that I will be from them in front of people of gender. And he said to him, you are from them. So he took out the dates robiola and from his pocket to be prepared for battle. And then he said, the time that I will take these dates, it's too much time between me and between Jenna. So he threw them on the ground immediately and went into battle and got the Shahada rhodiola one, also
the Sahabi, who just got married,
he just got married, and he had just been with his wife. And he heard on the husband.
The call for jihad. Yeah, Kayla, it could be.
They heard the call for them for the Muslim troops to prepare. He didn't even take the time to what to take the hosel rhodiola han he merely from his bravery got up from his his his honeymoon we can say, because it was his first night with his wife, and he went into battle. And as the professor said them said in the Hadith, that when he was blessed with the Shahada, that he saw the melodica washing him and give him goosal as they raised him up rhodiola Juan, and also the story and the day of your mama when they went to fight masala when you can get them and his troops and Bora
Bora Villa and when he went got a medic, when he went to the
when when when the when, when Santa Monica, Deb and his troops retreated to what their fort and they closed the door. And the big doors are smaller, like we have now where they can, you know, knock it down. It was a big, like a big gate, and they were not able to get in the Muslims. So he said I have a plan. He said he was a he was just he was a skinny, skinny, skinny man and lightened weight. But he was what fears on the battlefield all day long. He was like small in size, but he was like a lion. And it's hard. Well, the lavonne. He said, Take your spheres and put
the shield on top of them and put me in the middle and raised me up to the top of the wall. He said I'll jump over and open the door for you.
Imagine this and what's gonna happen inside these guys. They've retreated now and they have weapons, their arms, there's a window, open the door and a football, go ahead and open the door. What are they gonna do to you?
They're gonna try to kill you and try to take you out and he'd got stabbed almost 80 times or 70 times.
So as he's getting stabbed with swords, and he's getting hit with swords and sliced, he's what continued to open the door all day long, until you open the door and the Muslims came in. And he defeated Muslim al Qaeda and his army, and they were victorious. He did not die immediately. And Holy moly, he was so impressed by his bravery that he himself took the whole entire month to go into what actus is, as his doctor has his nurse and interchanging his bandages and taking care of him. Robin laquan
The fifth thing which makes this the hospital the alohar and I'm so unique is the fact that they were able to cut off all the ties with Elijah Hillier, immediately after they became Muslim. And this is important in a society where we live now in the West, where a person becomes a Muslim, or a person who starts to practice Islam wakers of all the ties in order to what hold strong to Islam. I want you to pay attention to this verse. The last version so till Majid Allah will also partner with others has led you to coma, you may only be lucky when
you are doing them and had the law sola that you do not find people who believe in a law and the last day, who befriend those who oppose Allah and His messenger. And if we were to put the period right here, if olanzapine were to stop here, it would be sufficient for the believers. It's very clear anybody who opposes the Lord's messenger, they're not friends of ours.
And it wasn't enough for a lot of stuff in his IRA. But because of the importance of this topic, Allah subhanaw taala continued, and he made it even clearer Willow Kennel
Club now, our one home or a shelter home, even if they were from their fathers, are their brothers, or their sons or their brothers, or their relatives. So Pamela made it very clear the closest people to you these four, they can nobody can be closer to you, usually than these four people. And he said, even if they're from these four people than they would if they oppose alone His Messenger and they are not friends of ours. So Pamela, and then to continue to show the importance of this issue of carrying off the relations in jelenia in the ratio of allegiance to Allah and His messenger and to the believers and freeing ourselves from the disbelievers that he mentions what these people gain
the people implement this in life. So what did they gain? He said Savannah what's island? hula?
khulumani man, they have been written
Their hearts the man the man has written in their hearts, what the home Bureau has been, that they have what been given the strength of the rule have the proofs and etc. And we will the film jetnet integrity mentality Helen how Paulina Thea, they will enter Paradise when he's with rivers flow to about attorney there. And then he says it'll be a lot more uncomfortable. And the fourth thing, that alone will be pleased with him. And then he said to like Hezbollah, Hezbollah is
that very these people are what the party of Allah subhanaw taala as it's translated, and very the party of a lot of the date or the successful ones.
If we look at this habit and their implementation of this,
we look at the story of Abdullah innovativeness to the head of the mafia been the leader of them not 15 of the hypocrites in Medina, when he slandered the Sahaba and slander the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his own son stood on the doors of the gates in Medina, and refused to let him in. And he wanted to kill him, his own father, why, because the love of the prophet SAW the sentiment of the companions was more in his heart than this hypocrite. So we asked permission to kill him and apologize to them did not give him permission, and he told him, and he to be good to your father. And also the story of humble Abraham and also his father had harmed the Muslims, and the prophet SAW
Selim. So he also asked permission to kill his father as well and Abu Zubaydah
on the on the day of the Battle of the budget,
his father kept coming towards him during on the battlefield, obviously, him being his father, he didn't want to kill him, but his father kept coming in his direction could come in his direction, at the end of the day, he had nothing to do so what he took him out, he killed his own father all day long. And because the allegiance is to, to Allah and His Messenger into the believers, even if it's from the closest of you, of your family members, and also the story of
Moses or bazis, who was the brother of Mousavi, Romeo, when he was caught as a prisoner of war, and he came past and he was expecting his brother, his own brother, the sheet of DNA, meaning they have the same mother and the same father. He's explaining to him to you know, lighten up on him, you know, take it easy on He's my brother at the end of the day, he said time tighter. He told them time tighter, because well, his mother's rich, and she will pay more in ransom for him. And another narration in
the Nevada given his help, and I don't know if it's the same story, but they mentioned a different thing. What about a relative of his? Is it a different relative or the same brother, it wasn't made clear. He said to him, he came down to Tucson and he said, You know, we're relatives, you look out for me, you know, put in a good word for this and maybe they'll let me go. And he said, Islam came and cut off all the ties between me and you. They said the only thing now the ties are what Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah. So he says, implementation life is also one of the things the sixth thing that made him so unique was the fact that they the beauty of this dunya did not affect them,
and they don't care about it. It's similar to the zoo we mentioned before.
But we'll talk about a story I mentioned a story about this, the store the famous story of rebury Abraham robiola, one, when he was called, or he was sent by the by the Muslim leader to go to Jerusalem, the leader of the Persian armies, and they can't leave when they come to when they when they came to battle the Sahaba. And those were with him from the February to battle the, the Persian armies, and to call them to Islam. They thought they were coming in for something of the dunya because the Arabs at that time they were the poorest of the poor. And they thought they were coming for something in the dunya. So he said let me put in my tent, all the most beautiful things. We have
beautiful rugs, beautiful pillows, the Jews that he had his bed was from pure gold Subhanallah he came in the first thing Robin Ahmed, he came on a small horse, not even like a big, you know, horse for about it's a small horse. And he came and he had on nothing impressive from close. In fact, he had on his his his his armor for warhead on his helmet. He had his sword on his side, and he had his spear in his hand. So obviously, the guards wouldn't let him in his you have to take all this stuff off. You want to see our leader? He said, I didn't come. You called me. I didn't come out and want to come you call me. So either I go in like this. I'll go back. So he said, Let him in. He looks
down. He sees the rocks. He sees all these nice pillows and the jewels and what have you. So he knows he figured out what they were trying to do. And to incise him with the dunya. So as he walks each step he takes he puts his sphere into the rug, ripping the rug. And in another step, the third The fourth step, showing them that what you have in the duty it means nothing to us. And then when he came to me said, What do you want? What did you come here for? Does anybody know what he says? Or what he said
and you know which many Sherman rebels that everybody will
Take any whoever law chooses or wills, those who worship other than law to the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
the dunya era Sati her
woman jural at the end, Isla del Islam. Two other things. First of all, to worship Allah is one and that worship anything from his creation. And then To what? To from the justice of Islam. I said that the second thing was before that,
from the justice of Islam, to what to the justice of Islam and away from the
before that the leak of the junior Lisa, do you have any that you can say the tightness? Or the difficulty of what of this junior to
the vastness of the dunya? And what does this mean by this? And even because they had more money at that time, because he realized what the reality of his doing is, is what you find in your heart now what you have in your hand. And that's why when I'm also part of what Allah says, In the abre, Latina in nl Fujairah latvija him that barely those who are obedient they are what in a constant pleasure and abroad and those who are what disobedient the future. They are what in jail, they're in there what any living hell are in hell. And if you want to say and then hell is that is what the verse says. But I want to point out is this is the the Kufa as even though they mentioned Rahim
Allah did this verse, he said, Do not think that this verse is just about the hereafter. He said, he even in this life, they have brought their name, they are living in this constant name, in this dunya. And we see this noun so as some of the some of you say, if the Moloch the Kings knew what we had, or what we were in from this pleasure we were in, that they will kill us with their swords, because the people of the dunya most of the rulers and the kings, there are people that dunya who are trying to find pleasure through the things that the dunya and they can't find it. But here these scholars were and these people who are that are bad, who worship Milo's Montana, they're finding the
pleasures of this dunya so they're in this Noreen. They're in this pleasure in this dunya but the people that dunya who are looking for the pleasure and a peace of heart, through the through the dunya, they do not find it celebrar there in that aim in the dunya and also what a little person in their graves, those who are obedient, their graves will be what, like it will be a role of role rather than agenda. It will be like a garden of the gardens of Paradise and the Kufa and also in the Hereafter, obviously, as well, and the kuffar in this dunya they live
in a living hell.
And if you look now, when people look to be happy, let's look for example, at some of the Hollywood actors and actresses, they have it all, don't they? Or do they?
And what's apparent they have it all. They have the fame, they have the money, they have the beauty, any everything is something you can imagine in the dunya. They have it. And how many of them have told us and we hear on the news, when they say why they're addicted to drugs and alcohol, they say because we're living in a living hell, how many of them have committed suicide, how many of them go time and time again, and to rehabilitation for drugs and alcohol, because they're looking for a way out, I'm not going to mention any names, all of you know, several examples that we've seen throughout the last few years, a lot of them they continue to grow those who have killed themselves
in drug overdose, and those who would have gone mentally insane as one of the famous female singers, as it happened to her recently. So now
we see through the work
through the knowing the reality of the dounia, as he said to him, that he was calling the people to what to leave the what the difficulty of this dunya for the ease of this dunya and the job at the end the oppression of other religions, to the justice of Islam. And if we look at the rulings of Islam and how Islam is we see that justice to Islam and the oppression of other religions. And that if we want to give examples, we have to go with the depth and we're running out of time. The seventh thing that made the Sahaba so unique was that their focus on coming together as an oma and that deviating between themselves. And that's because when they went to the foreign they found that Allah
subhanaw taala said to them, well,
they heavily let me go and hold on all firm to the rope of Allah subhanho wa Taala and do not deviate between yourselves or not, don't be divided amongst yourselves and also an awesome Antonis as well. Dr. Maha
Shula who will attend as well with every one that obey Allah and His messenger and do not dispute amongst yourself and you will lose your courage and your strength will departs. So they realize the realities and the danger of what not being together and as Muslims today, and especially here in the weather when the west or in the east and the Muslim countries or in our Muslim countries, as important as Muslims that we see
The big picture. So we're not going to agree on everything as Muslims. But when we are dealing with, for example, the non Muslims, it's important that we come together as Muslims and we are one as one body and shuffled Islam, him to me, and he mentioned something very interesting in much more of a tower. And that is the manner of how this habit used to differ from between themselves. Do they differ? Yes, they would differ, he said, but if those this habit, those who came after him, they would differ, they would have what
they would debate against them with themselves at debate with with it with the Brotherhood still there. And that it'd be they would take us take them out of the fold of brotherhood, like we see today with the youth where if we differ on something, this one takes that one off. And this one says no, you're on it, you're off of it, and they get into name calling, what have you. And he said that they didn't do this, and he said they would differ. He said they would differ. And the message Miss ella elmia Amelie. elmia Amaya. What does this mean? In in Armenia, for example, if you look at what Mr. Trudeau do, and when he was in Mecca, at the time, it was man worth man want to pray minute for
cuts. And this, Abdullah masoumeh heard this, he was very angry, because it's not as soon as the prophet SAW sent him You should pray to rockets. So he was very upset about it.
But when they got up and prayed for God's he prayed with him for rockets, and his students asked him, he said, You know, you're angry, and you didn't agree with him, and you pray with him, What? Four rockets, how was this is a collection that different machines is evil. So the Saturday will differ, but they will not come the brother who would not leave. And also that even in some issues of al Qaeda, they assume the foundation of al Qaeda, there's no difference between this habit or general self, however, and some issues for example, where we see a loss of habitat on the Day of Judgment, reata law, all of the Sahaba they agreed on this, did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
CLR supanova or not? Some of them say he didn't someone say they did not. But the correct event is that he did not even though they differ on this, they did not What does not separate them as a Muslim woman, they still stay together. And as he said, that they would return it and fantana zawsze for of doing that, if they What if they different in something they want to return it to the book of Allah and to the Sunnah of the messenger, so I send them and they will not differ between themselves. So we must pay attention to this the importance that even if we differ, we cannot forget the importance of brotherhood and Islam and being as one oma.
The eighth thing which made the Sahaba so unique and so special and so successful, was the fact that they will quickly repent to Allah subhanaw taala if they were to fall into sin,
now like us, who hesitates and we say by the end later we're going to make we become 40 when this and that. And as a joke, I always tell to the Sudanese brothers don't know if anybody from Sudan is here today that they have a an a Sudanese dialect and the Egyptian dialect as well. They use the word Hanif al Qaeda, Al Qaeda, instead of the word instead of the letter seen, which is the classic Arabic serval is one of al Qaeda. So they have they have a city called hantu. That means we're going to make Toba that the city the city is actually called that the Village and today we're going to make Toba and this is how we are today, and we're going to make Toba inshallah, and we're going to
make their way someday, somehow, some way we're going to make Toba but this is not the way they made sense. They will not any people who are not normal your means they made sense. But the difference between us in between them is that they will immediately what makes over. If you look at the story of marriage or chlamydia, those who committed Zina, they Amelie what came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and as they have the head to work to be to be to be a stone or to be stone for what? For fornicating
or for committing adultery. So the as to what to be stoned. And even the process tell him when he first heard it from them what he turned to those that to know, give him a chance to go back when he said, and it shows you the view of Islam. And it's not you know, we're hunting down. The people are like this. And you have to have four witnesses if you want to, if you want to testify against somebody that they made Zina, and even the process that I gave the people who came in systematic give themselves a chance to go back on what he said. So he turned the other way. And then he said a few times and then he ordered the Sahaba to what
to give him the head of stoning. And this shows you the man they had even though they fell into sin, also Abu Zubaydah when he felt that he was what that he had gone against something there was not in the war hour after the war that he should have should not have done he wouldn't tied himself to a pillar in the masjid and said that he will not let himself go into what the process would forgive him. Also, the three who did not go to law school
Took when the proposition came back, all the Mana 14 came to the profit. So they sell them. And they made it excuses. Well, I said, you know, we tried to come but we came late, I couldn't find my camera, I couldn't find this whatever excuse they had they made up in the process. I mean, who they were not 15, they were hypocrites, and they were lying. And he let it because he didn't want to cause a bigger fitness. And he knew that there was no good in these people. So he accepted it from them. These three of the truthful companions, who throw weakness in the room, and during that time, did not want to go for certain reasons, they decided to tell the truth, even though they spent 50
days where they Muslims didn't talk to him, nobody would give them salams. And they will do this what because they were truthful in their repentance. And they repeated repentance immediately after they fell into what into error, also,
was a few other things. But we have about 10 minutes left and end of the lecture. So I will wrap it up and show how perhaps we will continue. I know the second lecture, it's kind of, it's kind of heavy.
It's like when you eat food, you know, you know, eat food in the morning. You know, you don't function too well. Or you guys will eat food here. Some people do have restaurants, their food, food is kind of kind of heavy, you know, we need food, you can't move too well. So I know now I'm in the second lecture. And it's kind of heavy. So if anybody has any questions, we'll use this last 10 minutes for questions. And if not, then I'll get the green light from Husson. I can't tell you go eat until he says go because he's in charge. But if anybody has any questions, feel free.
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. And what's important when you deal with non Muslims in a when you become a Muslim are supposed to give all of this up right away? This is this is any proper, but the reality of it is is that the most of them are not, it's gonna be difficult for them. And when you tell them Muslim issue becomes any and not everyone's gonna immediately say, you know, give me a hijab. But what's important? Is that what we call them to Islam, they accept Islam, and we save them from the hellfire. That's step one. Then after that, we start to what we start to teach them. I mean, when I first became Muslim, I was in the masjid that had an earring and
gold chain and I imagined I looked, you know, they're Muslims. Oh, my God, you know, what?
I didn't know. They sent some of the youth to tell me you know, in Islam innocence I took it wasn't a big deal. Eventually you learn, you know, now somebody has a girlfriend has a boyfriend. And obviously, you know what you have to know, even if they refuse to do so I'm not telling my girlfriend, you know, you can't become Muslim. save them from the hellfire. Then when he comes to the masjid, or she comes to the masjid, and they start to look to the Muslims, and their demand starts to grow, they start to hon Quran, they start to pray their demand increases, and they see how bad this is in Islam, then eventually inshallah through their email, they will leave it and some
people will be blessed to live in immediately. I'll also Matata will give him the the man is trying to leave it immediately. It's important that what we call this person, this person who's talking about even if he's an alcoholic, if he's doing system calling to us, them then become Muslim. And then you know, from mixing with the brothers, and it's also the same thing now you can tell him when you come to him, let us just don't be drunk. It's like this habit when they come for salon. So now he'll start what leaving up on alcohol because he wants to come to the masjid. And then eventually shell he'll leave it all together and hopefully, you know, through and through being with the
brothers, he will leave it immediately if he becomes a Muslim inshallah Tada.
Any other questions?
Obviously, you do.
What's important, is it everybody who has it has it was an immigrant or is migrated to this country or any foreign country, know that you will have
you have a lot of responsibility on your shoulders, and you stand in front of a lawsuit panel without the judgment. And you will be held accountable.
Because you are a representative of Islam as a Muslim is what you have to realize. You are representative of Islam as a Muslim, and people look to you, and they will use you as an excuse in a day of judgment that I work with. So and so and he told me nothing about Islam. And I did he didn't implement Islam in his life, and he discouraged me from Islam. So it's a very it's a very dangerous thing when you come to a country like this
Because you can have, you can get a lot of sins on the Day of Judgment for misrepresenting Islam. So it's important now first of all, our mission, our duty as people who have migrated to this country as Muslims, that you implement Islam,
in yourself or for you any First of all, you have women Islam. And this is the best way to give Dawa. Now we can talk now about our techniques and how to be fancy in this, but the best way to get down to non Muslim is implementing Islam, in yourself in your life. And if you look at the largest Muslim population in the world today, where is it?
Indonesia? How do they become Muslim? Through the sword? Islam beyond mother myths
Islam spread through sword is what they say. And no other conference what Islam beyond my limits is what they say about us, the largest Muslim population in the world, they didn't see one Muslim soldier. How do they become Muslim to the to the actions do the Muslim traders who went there and implemented Islam in their lives, when they came to they would come to him and the non Muslims, the company would come to them before they would cheat them. And then when the Muslims came, he would tell them that any I have these goods, for example, have this material, but it's any there's this in this city that it's not good about it. Another one come to me say you know, my brother has in his
material is actually better than mine. I can give it to it as much as you want for the same price. You'll find it with Hasson, he has the best type of material. So you'd be surprised what is this? So the all of them became Muslims. And now they're the largest Muslim population in the world today to what to the actions. So this is the main thing. And then we went, we implement Islam in our lives. And this is the best way to call to Islam after that, Bella Juanjo, if you tell them any anything will own a small thing about Islam. If they ask you about Islam, for example, when we felt we were fasting in Ramadan, how many of your co workers would ask you why about fasting? Why do you fast and
beautiful way to start talking about Islam? And then if you don't know that much, it's important that you don't say anything about Islam that you don't know. So you don't fall into sin again, saying some things you don't know. So if you can say what you know, and then you can want after this, call them to Islam, you can give them a pamphlet about Islam, you can give them a CD about Islam, you can ask them to come to the masjid talk to the girls, you know about Islam, but like I mentioned, the most important thing and emotion responsibility. And our mission in this country is that we implement Islam, and this is the best way to call Islam and Allahu Alem or sallallahu
sallam. Mohammed, I think we have a few more minutes to
wrap it up. Okay.
Okay, this is asking about, you know, befriending non Muslims. We don't do it, then. And it's a good point. I'm glad they said this question because actually, I want to say something here. But I guess we kind of went kind of quick, and I forgot to mention this. We thought why not be friendly non Muslims, and the Arpita Allah and Allah and we implemented in our lives, it's important that we don't have any extreme in that view. And that doesn't mean that you're not a nice person. A lot of people know they read a verse like that, and they'll walk around, they'll see the non Muslim.
Catherine, I can't be nice to him. Now you can be kind you can be polite, and totally frightening and also manhandle all those who are who are against the religion. Not every non Muslim is the enemy of Islam. He hates Islam or hates Muslims. That's a difference when we talk about the friend name also the dangers of hanging out with non Muslims. And this is a lot of people that fall into this and share thoughts a view you can call them if you're not their friend, you can be nice to them. You can save them sometimes according to Islam, but they shouldn't you shouldn't be there with them all the time because they affect you in a negative way. So you explain Islam to them, you're nice to
them, you're nice to your neighbors, the prophecies tell them he used to always say when they cook something in the house Don't forget our Jewish neighbor of the cook sent a gift to him as well. So you can be nice to anonymous the neighbor you can be a good members, polite and nice with everybody and call people to Islam. And that means you obviously have to sit with him sometimes. But mixing and having friends that are non Muslims, I don't recommend expensive for our youth, you have to pay attention is because their customs and that I that it's different from what we have as Muslims, they see things things being normal, very normal, they have a boyfriend and a girlfriend now Is it normal
So wanna know Ashima
normal Ella she has been the funny guy you know if you don't do that. So now when you move to the server, this is the ill effect they have on you. And it also kind of Watada he says yeah, you know, it's a lacuna Masada thing Oh, you believe you're alone be with the truthful. So if you have to be the Muslims who are the truthful and publicizing them said and it led to so have in a moment while I was in
the process and he gave two conditions for
Who is your friend as a Muslim? He said that you saw him in the moment. You should only be with a movement a believer. Who is your friend this is the first one and not just any Muslim. The second condition well I have a letter T A beautiful lady, that the person who should eat your food meaning what the person who you call over your house for dinner, and that you hang out with is usually somebody What do you like? And this should only be from the P e who is what who has taqwa who has fear of Allah subhanaw taala. That's not enough even for him to be Muslim. He must be from the tepee and this is who should have as a friend, and we're going to wrap up now inshallah with this last
question. Well, mahalo, mahalo cinema Baraka, Mohammed.
