meno vibe today insha Allah to Allah, we continue from where we left off, maybe six weeks or seven weeks ago, right before Ramadan in this era of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, and we are coming towards the end of the Sierra.
I suspect maybe,
by the end of June, kind of shake things up a bit and invite new, a new audience because some people are feeling that they've heard this from me too many times they want to move on.
Honestly, there's nothing more entertaining and enjoyable and telling his story, it was a lot to us. I don't know whether this is actually my eighth or ninth time, I can't actually can't remember anymore, but something like that and selling his story. And I find it to be one of the most fascinating human stories that have ever told, if not the most fascinating. So what we stopped out last time, I'll go quick recap
was the reclaiming of the Holy Land of Mecca. But mica, the private area Salatu was Salam
after the betrayal, of
for the Treaty of Peace abiam. So the Treaty of padega that occurred was designed to allow the Muslims to speak about Islam freely within Arabia, without the fear of being massacred, persecuted or murdered. And that and it served that purpose because there was a clause within the treaty that allowed for peace.
However, Quraysh had a problem with it, because within two years or less of this treaty, the number of Muslims in Arabia skyrocketed. They went from a very small group that were they weren't very afraid of, or they didn't feel that they were a threat to a group of people that outnumbered them or started to outnumber them. So they got very scared. So it made it made them a little bit antsy, and they ended up betraying the treat or breaking the treaty by murdering people from Fatah who accepted Islam as they were on the Richter O'Meara Pragati Salatu was Salam would find that out,
was if Yang would would attempt to lie his way through renewing the treaty to prevent the probability assigned to a Sunday television provider you sort of already knew about it. So he didn't, that didn't, didn't fly out of your slot to some planned plan for to hammock very well. His plan was to minimize the possibility of bloodshed. That was the whole goal. The goal was that the Pragati son was going to make it to Mecca with no bloodshed, and then enter Mecca as peacefully as possible. And if you look at the numbers, only 16 People fell that day. And this is basically the profit and loss I'm entering my COVID army, you would think that is like, the possibility of this
happening was very low, by the way, because the last time someone tried to enter MCO with an army, Jonnie, things didn't go too well for them. If you go back to the story of cyber field, above it is lottosend was able to achieve that objective. And then through the story of all of it, he entered Mecca, the idols were removed. He forgave the people of Qureshi, all of them, even those who he had ordered their execution, or came back and asked for forgiveness, and above it a saw to us and offered them all forgiveness, such as equity management at some point, even Omiya and Hyndman talked about all of them, all of them were pardoned by the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, I don't think I
told the story of the day but I'll tell you that story today and and I can't remember maybe I did, but I'll tell it anyway. aren't too bad Otaiba. They were this is this is the interesting piece. So they're the sons of Buddha. Buddha, is the brother Alia saw two sons uncle, prior to Islam or divine Otaiba were both engaged to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, his daughters Rocha. Yeah, and Uncle film. And once the Prophet Alayhi Salatu Salam Fayyad, he became private, announced prophecy, I would have ordered them to divorce his daughters out of spite. So they did. And what did I need? SubhanAllah. This is a story I think that is worth maybe contemplating, especially for sisters, and
you have daughters who haven't gotten married.
Imagine how do you read the law and her both their daughters are engaged. The tool suitable gentleman has been at a bar or two they were of the right age from the right family of great novelty. I need they're good men.
And then they get divorced because of the Prophet It is thought to Islam as Dawa, because of what he did. Now you can imagine in other in a parallel universe or a different storyline of so a lady whose
daughters are going to be divorced because of a choice her husband meet. He's not going to be too thrilled about her husband's choice, fight about the prophit Assad some story
and you think that maybe he will tell herself well, they got divorced for the sake of Allah. I mean, it happened because because you know, we're standing by Islam, to Allah subhanho wa Taala item will you know, your I would not, you'll find
will grant them a better spot. See, Rokia didn't marry for a number of years later. And omocha Thorne didn't marry until Rokia died. Like oh my god, it took her a decade before
She got married again. She was engaged and she lost her engagement because of this. They didn't like that. Immediately Allah granted her another suppose No, it was a decade before she got married. He got married to arthrotomy fun after her sister oppa died. That's why monsoon rain of the two the two lights because he married the two daughters of the Prophet it has a lot to us today. When you think about this story, I think I find it a very important piece of wisdom and a gem that you can take with you. Just because you do something for the sake of Allah and it harms you doesn't mean that Allah subhanaw taala is just gonna give you what you wanted immediately. This is an important piece,
very important idea to the law. I know why you don't consume. It's devastating for women, when a when an engagement is broken, and they didn't want it to be broken. It's very harmful. It's harmful to man, it's much more hurtful towards the woman much more just how things are.
For the sake of Allah, she lost her engagement.
She could tell us a follow up, I did it for you. So in her mind, she may have an expectation that Allah subhanaw taala will immediately grant her a better spouse right after that.
Get a sorcerer is 10 years
10 years. He never she never. By the time she got married, she was too old, didn't have children.
That's the proper idea. So to Sam's daughter, okay, that's his daughter, Adi. His thought was that when we do something for the sake of Allah and give up things that we like, or we lose things that we want for the sake of Allah, be very careful of having false expectations. This is a very this is a trap the shaitaan lays out for you on your way to God as you walk towards Allah Subhana Allah chiffon has to lay some traps so he lays this one this is a really good one. It's a very powerful trap. It gets you to believe that because you're doing things for the sake of Allah, you deserve things you deserve a rose pedaled red carpets pathway forward you deserve everything because you
stopped drinking and you stopped doing this you stopped doing that and you became a better person. You change things around for the sake of Allah. Whereas my red carpet where's my paparazzi? Where's my reception? Why am I not being? Why am I not being celebrated? No, no, you did this for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. Understand, understand what that means. You need to take a step back understand what that means. That means Allah subhanaw taala, yet again, yet again, has blessed you with the blessing of guidance. Above everything else he has given you. He is on top of that giving you guidance. So I don't understand where the idea of, of deserving more comes from, except for my
neffs that is extremely, extremely selfish, and very, very vain.
Above it is Salatu Salam is daughters were divorced because of Islam. And it took them a while before they got married again. One of them was over a decade before she married again and she would ever bored children because of it.
That's the story of Ivanka zoom. The daughter of Muhammad Rasool Allah, Allah Azza wa sallam. earthborn Otaiba ignited betta have continued, all throughout his prophecy and his time in Mecca and Medina, continue to work against the Prophet alayhi salatu salam in horrific ways. And once they were caught, they stood in front of him shaking on a histological was set up in fear from what they had done, and they brought the audience right to us, in a known story will point out to them you remember when you did this to me, ever said that about me? My cousins, my cousins. You remember when you divorced my daughters, my cousins? Remember when he tried to murder me? Remember, the costly the
piece of poetry that you said about me? My cousins? And they stand there and they're shaking and he forgives them? So Allah Holly's like
he forgives them. And they accept Islam. And he gives them gifts out of his salatu salam because it's his family. And in Arabic, they say I was your family. You spit up words on your face and sit down where it is on your lap. It's all on you. Like there's nothing there is no gain. There is no gain in turning against your family. There's no gain. There's nothing to win. It's everyone loses. You're the first loser. You just you let it go. And you forgive and you move on because your family is what he did in salatu salam you stood in front of them why? Why did you do this? You could have been beside me. Why did you choose to be why did you choose to be like this? Why did you harm me and
hurt me so much for so long? It didn't have good answers.
Most scholars or that is of the opinion that they accepted Islam and became Sahaba
total the Allah Juan Houma eyes he would love us to do all of his love to us and because they are his family.
In a really cool story, narrated by Muhammad on the day of after after about the hammock, one of the or two of the people who the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam had ordered to be executed in Mecca if they even if they were found holding on to the curtains of the Kaaba, there's only 10 of them. Two of these men
They didn't actually get out of Macau, but they they ran and still sought refuge in the house of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam
his cousin, her name is Hernan who live I will call him is the prophet Alia
on top of the Allahu anha one of the great Sahaba yet the Ali Abdullah Rana would see them. This is what the story goes that they were hiding in Makati and Paulo sees them. He says I was commanded so he pulled his sword they run he's running after them. They are running he's running after them. They see the host they knock on the door. Begging let us in. Let us in. Let us say we've seek refuge in your home so she opens her house. They enter she closes the door. Ali is standing there knocking on the door Ali is what
Think about it a little bit. Her name is Oman and bint Abu Talib
Yeah, so she's he's her brother. So he's her younger brother. So he's knocking on the door he's they open up, open up. The Prophet told us to do this in Omaha it was safe but you have to Houma I've offered them my my protection. So Ali laughs women don't matter to hear only sentences when the women offer protection and Ijarah the concept of offering yours you are offering your protection was something was specific for men. So at least you can offer who you are to these people. Women don't do this open the door. The Prophet told us to execute them according to whom I'm telling you I offer them my protection to their arguing. So Muhammad says
I'm gonna go to the Prophet alayhi salaatu WA, which he closed the door and locks it the two men are inside. And she goes over to the Prophet it has a lot to it. So the story goes the Prophet alayhi salatu salam had his daughter Fatima and he was having he was he was he was having a shower. So he was behind the bush and 14 was standing there with the curtain it was the tower he was getting dressed. Tomohisa is coming cough coughing she's his cousin from afar yellow suit Allah rasool Allah, so he looks over the bush. Oh, God.
Welcome. He's trying to try to get dressed. Oh my god, what you want we might do reading for Carla to Rasulullah Giuliani or Joe to Houma to men and I have offered them a protection. Your caller ID and Matthew wrote on it saying I don't I don't have the right to do that. So I can maybe ally yourself to Islam, or just just it'd be just a gentleman, my job to Mahoney, I offer my protection to the ones whom you offer your protection to your own money
from Allah Hadees, like you said, and this was the first time historically that a woman offered jeweler to two men like offered protection to men, and it went through. And it was a it was a precedent that never happened before. And then I finally saw some accepted it and the two men were pardoned. And they went and they didn't except this time, by the way they left to Damascus. Hopefully they're not my ancestors, but still.
It's going to be too bad if
they were pardoned by the province. So that's, that's myself and my family. He will stay.
I'll tell you the ending of the story. Basically, he will stay around. It was in Mecca for 19 Nights.
Here's the number that we have. For the majority of books of Seattle. Other books will give you other numbers too. And
as I pointed out before the numbers when it comes to numbers, there's lack of accuracy because people didn't have the apps that we have today to keep track of things so they they approximation. We think it's around close to three weeks that he stayed in Makati, he sought to ascend, it'll stay in a tent.
He stayed in a tent. The site will come and sail tell him y'all are still hola hola. They have to eat our basic Why don't you go to your house? Well, cool. Well tell our kids leave coration beta while you're leaving your house Quraysh not only ahead, the torn down the house of his marriage of his word of his of his wedlock with with Khadija where his children were born. They had sold the land to someone else. And I even slept with him never reclaimed it. He didn't go after it. Because it was so there's there's conflict of interest if he did that I'll use law to summarize the leader for him to go after his personal his personal belongings, your personal possessions would be
conflict of interest. He never did out of his love. And he stayed during Fantasmic in a tent and he would go back to Medina Alia SWAT was just like He promised. It's like he promised the onslaught. He could have stayed in Mecca from that day on he could have moved the center the capital of his country from yesterday, but in Madina Munawwara I need to give them a call Rama. But he didn't. Because he gave his word to the people of Medina that it would always be with them. I told them, but it Dum Dum will hit mill hidden my blood is now yours would hurt them and I'm buried with you. I will live with you and I will die with you. And he and he went back out of your salatu salam to
after getting back to Medina before he actually made it there. I'm going to tell you this story here.
So here's, I'm telling you all these things that are happening. You see, this is all everything I told you. To me that's happening in the meantime, you know, when you see the movie and in the meantime, is this is happening somewhere and if if you ever go to Saudi the life is not too far away from Mecca. There are two trials by the name of even halogen they are cousin tribes and even allies that have always been the rivals of Quraysh. They've always wanted the the honor
of serving the cowboy or being the protectors of the of the of the baits in Harlem. They always want they've always wanted that they in history had raided the Mecca with coloration and a number of times.
The last time they raided Mecca the last time they prepared an army and raided Mecca trying to remove Quraysh and run an Occupy Maga was during the Prophet it is salatu salam slayeth. He was 17 years old. He recalls that the first time he ever pulled a bow with an arrow was during the, during the war where he was protecting Mecca with the people of Kurdish from Turkey for now was he remembers this war audience thought was, that was one of many, they had done it many times before. So this rivalry was real. They really because if you have if you occupy Metka, and you're the one who takes on yourself huge responsibility of the service of invaded haram. And before that,
obviously the idols that are around it, you had a lot of power boys was very powerful because of that. The problem it is thought through some enters Mecca removes courage or removes what Christ was the flesh is still there. It's just in a different, different suit now, because he added his thought to Semitism Quraysh, and shows about God and Omar and his debate and it they're all from college. So now it's a different suit. But it's the same idea. But they've been allies. And their idea was now since they're fighting like Muhammad and pleasure fighting, we this is our chance to pounce. We wait now we have to do it now. So they put together an army of 20,000 people.
How many were the Muslims at that point? So 1000
Tell me when they went in better? What was the ratio?
was three to one, right? And they won.
And technically speaking, before the guys ran down the mountain, they were winning, what was the ratio and offered?
You remember, what are the numbers in your head?
So 700? Were the Muslims? What was the number of the of the Quraysh?
All 4000. So what's the ratio?
Anyone want to do with your 3000? Sorry, so it was one to four on my back? Is there 3001 to four or went to five? Then hang up when they won? What was the ratio then? That was ridiculous. Right? That was one to eight that was 10,000 versus 1500 people, right? And then either they had no idea what didn't really lose. I don't even know what the ratio was because they only sent 3000 people and there was a quarter of a million on the other side. And they still didn't lose. So the ratios that they've been stuck with over the years have been ridiculously high 1-231-241-2812 50 and they were fine. What is the ratio right now?
Over half, they are over half, they were like piece of cake. This is not gonna be a problem at all. We we've been winning wars with you the highest number we've had was 3000 people at a time. Now there's 12,000 of us. And there's only 20 of them. This is not going to be a problem at all.
Or recital. I'll show you the verse in a moment you understand why this is bad was talked about in the Quran. Only within one or two verses in the Quran for a very specific reason that we should learn, but you understand to understand the story. So the problem it is thought goes to them became aware, obviously his intelligence was working. They never stopped. He was never naive. It hit the lotto sent me knew immediately that even I wasn't preparing for all this. Once he was done. He packed up he moved towards them. He didn't wait for them to come to Mecca. He didn't go to Medina for them to later on coming to occupy Mecca, he went immediately to neutralize the threat. So he
marches towards the thief. And he was, if you remember, let's go back even a little bit further. In what I talked about, when the pro values sought to Islam was going on for that matter. He didn't tell people where he was going. If you remember the story that I told he didn't tell people, he kind of spread rumors that he was going for a thief and a lesson for him. So the people that don't even know why, why are they coming to us when they start to try to put together an army because they were scared that he didn't end up going throughout his SelectUSA. But the demon has now had an army anyways, like well, now maybe it's our time to palace. Let's see if we can punch the profile you saw
seven march towards them. Now the way it works is when you go to, if you'll find this, if you ever go to into Saudi and you go from Mecca to apply that after maybe 50 to 60 kilometers outside of Mecca, you start to enter in a very different landscape. The landscape is very different than on top. It's very green, very green. But yeah, it's very dry. It's mountains and rock and sand.
When you come closer to if it changes, it becomes very green. It's like you're not in the same country anymore. It's valleys and rivers and it's actually very beautiful. It's a very beautiful part of the world. Just Americans from there, you can ask him about his very beautiful part of the world. So when he's coming there, Ali Asad to us. And as he's going towards life, there are a lot of valleys. So they came to one valley. And the problem out are you slow to write in the valley is that the Valley of quinine? That's the name of That's why the Bible is called for name because that's the area. He comes to the area of quinine. It's a valley you have to go down like you're walking on
flatland, and then now you have to actually go go down. So before he gets to Raleigh, his thought to me is like, let's be very careful as we go down here.
We'd be very careful, I want my I need the commander to take this very slowly.
But as I said, the ratio was so easy, they didn't really,
for a moment there, they got a little bit loose with things. They let their guard down for a moment, let their guard down for a moment. He said, Be careful, though one pupil at a time, send spies or
people ahead of you to let you know how things aren't, they didn't do that, quite immediately, he was upfront. So he just charged down with his with his, with the front part of the army. They didn't do that.
Even though as in as the provider you saw there was some kind of suspected, had laid themselves perfectly had positioned perfectly within the the Valley of plenty. That's where they were waiting for the Muslims to come through, hoping that maybe they come through with the proper preparation that will seem, which the Muslims did.
And as the army enters the volume, honey, just as the majority of them are in,
they jumped them. And they flank them from behind, and from the sides. And it turns into complete chaos. Climbing immediately that day, would fall. The first time in his history, he would fall, he would fall to the ground, unconscious, covered by leaves, not seen by the other army. And that's how he didn't die that day. That day, the only reason he didn't die is that when he felt as he was they were ambushed by the army of people he was and he fell off his horse. And he ended up under a lever a broken old tree. So he wasn't seen. And he was left as people were running back and forth because he was unconscious for a couple of hours. And he was extremely, extremely wounded. Clyde was stay
wounded for months after this battle. Like you would take a month to actually stand on his feet six feet again on the low end, which I'll tell you, I'll tell you a bit later in the story. But you imagine the ambush I'd read I'll tell you the story. It made you excited when you think of God and what He just thinking of the almost the invincible warrior caught it that day. Not only did he fall he fell unconscious and almost died is how bad the ambush was. It became so chaotic that everyone started to run. The Muslims had no center there was no more organization. They had no idea where people were. The batter had fallen and people just started to run just getting out of the valley.
The Prophet alayhi salatu salam was left in the middle of the valley, the valley of inane with with a handful of people,
a handful of people amongst them his uncle, but how did they not know but even amongst other uncle that I bet did not give up but only a number of people who are surrounding him on a slot to somewhere left. Everyone else we're running is very dangerous. You could have been killed that day. Ali salatu salam. So he started to call and start to call on people loudest voice that he had just said I don't know maybe you will end up not dealing with polyp eladia about Allah.
I am the Prophet there is no lie about that I am the son of abnormal funny to me, oh servants of Allah come back to me.
Ali, maybe five tells us Cordova can a Omaha
Corona. Do with Allah Allah who said welcome to Omaha actinidia. He, and he is with him. He said that day. The closest one of us to the enemy was the profiler. You saw 207 On that date, I sought refuge in Him. And then that day when I got really scared and it was very it was it was very heavy. I kind of stood behind him and his thought was I'm hoping for his protection. That's how bad things turn. And that's how that's how brave he was on his side. He was was raising his voice and maybe you would
call him to people come back to him. And people weren't coming back to our best. But it was one of those men who have foghorns for a voice bucks. He had that heavy voice and he's hard to call. Yeah, Shadow long, slow. Yeah. Marcelo Maharaj. At the Prophet alayhi salatu salam says no, they will say that. Yeah. They it Aqaba. Yeah, but they it sheduled Yeah, as hard as what am I to come this way you take say, Oh, the people who gave their pledge the day of Aqaba, the how far he went back somebody's life. This to me is very meaningful. I used I talked about this this Friday, actually.
It wasn't even planned. Honestly. SubhanAllah. When I put the whole bunch together, that piece wasn't even on my mind. I just it just kind of occurred to me I was I was the part of it is thought to some would remind people of this via at that moment, if you were to go back, that may owl was done 10 years before. It was a decade prior to this moment this way. That's how far away this was. But he signed with the unsalted and the margerine who are with him. And they they pledged that they would protect and they would fight and they will not run. And they said yes. They are the sheduled on what happened on the day of today. There's not that far away is only a year and a half or two
years before when they pledged that they would go and they would fight for the blood of Earth man or the Allahu
On the DACA register that says Welcome to visa vie the lucky Latina your party ruler comm what I try to do in hola hola you're able Martines reminder Surah Al to convert your pledge. So I have been dealing with putting starts to raise his voice calling yes have a bigoted acaba yes holiday it shows your and they start running back.
And they start running back and the valley is flooded again with the Muslims just in time, just in time, I'm gonna tell you something that happened during all this before the numbers came. So this is where Mecca is. And this is where a pot is.
This is the valley that they're going through. And this is how they kind of ambushed them on from both sides. I had more strict more pictures actually ever thought of but I don't know where they went out to figure out who deleted these slides.
Maybe they're on a different on a different file because I can't find the slides that I took. There's actually a lot of pictures of puppies a beautiful place and there are pictures of the valley itself. I just for some reason. Today, I didn't have time to actually go back and look at it again. But it's there.
Let's move on, I'll come back to this animal. So as the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam is is in the midst of this. As Ibis is calling upon people who might have you sought to ascend within a very few people. Or even if you thought him and a couple of men are standing and they're they're defending and they're trying to force raise themselves not to get killed. And by just calling the Muslims are coming back slowly but it complete chaos. A lot of Muslims fell that day the Prophet got killed within that period of time before the Muslims actually came back and they were able to regroup again. There was a man by the name of shea butter, Uthman Ibn Tonhalle, vitamin Tala, you should
know their name as well as the guy who had the key of the Kaaba, and they didn't give it to the proper value. So to sum initially, and then the day but ama catered the private Alliston took the key back and they gave it back to him. And it's in his family till this date Shaybah Haddish chip on his shoulder, had a chip on his shoulder. He didn't he wasn't happy. He accepted the slavery in his heart. He didn't. He can't he couldn't stand the humiliation that occurred to his father. They weren't with the bravado he just thought to me it like he was all committed. But in his mind, he was going to assassinate the Prophet alayhi salatu salam whenever he could. In the midst of the battle
of quinine, he pulls his dagger, che by a murderous motive and he pulls his dagger and he slowly starts walking in here it has to be he's coming closer to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam hoping to find any moment to do with the St. Joseph Anioma bow polesitter polyoma about Allah says, today's the day where his sorcery will fail him is what a saber saying today is the day where his sorcery will fail him he's like he's still he still thinks it's something beyond prophecy some Allah audience like you said to him, I just come in close with his dagger in his arm. The proper audience saw those I'm Stern's to him.
We have qu Shaybah Ori do people hire what to really do be a sham? I want good for you when you want evil for me. What do you do become higher?
Up What are you to become hired? What do you do we have seeker shell. Actually it's actually both actually both narrations Yeah, interesting. Actually, I never thought of it. That's actually both. I want to good for you and you want harm for yourself? What do you do because I want goodness for you. What do you do we have SICA Sharon you want harm for yourself.
Kuru farmers Allah, who truly is Donald Villa Hayashi. But ask Allah for forgiveness your shaver, but for Mazda they are poorly established, but they kept on telling me as Donald Videla. But I saw that when you who who are humble will do healing until His face became the most beloved piece to me that my heart is that Allah Azza wa sallam, the whole dr oz would Allah I stolen from Allah. Why should I do and Nikka rasuluh I asked him to give us like a plate and I bear witness that you are His Prophet. Oh God through Monica rasool Allah do I have the permission to fight with you or call an abuse I said I'm not ashamed, but you stand by me, because I am I will show you but at the end of
the battle of quinine. The prophet Ali Asad was come to Shiva clearly. Ha ha but you see Shaybah lo file tema, our the Hulten. Now if you if you did what you were hoping to do, you would have been from the people of now in Coloma. Let me earlier agenda and today you're going to be one of the people of Jana Medela Hayashi, but say Hamdulillah I shape Majelis to accord with hamdulillah Hamdulillah. I didn't make the mistake of of Salalah
trying to kill him in middle of war.
He's trying to assassinate him the middle of war. Not any war. No, probably one of the most chaotic moments within battle that he had experienced out of your salatu salam aside from offered that you heard the story about how very chaotic, very problematic he was very bad. This was very similar to it. And he had someone who was supposed to be standing by him is pulling the dagger to kill him on it. He was allowed to survive and he still finds these type of stories are the ones that overwhelmed me a little bit. Because I don't I don't think I don't know that there are people in the world that would have patience for someone like that. Well, I sometimes someone comes up to me after slot
there's drama with it with a little thing and I'm ready to swing. You sometimes
It'll be just a little, there'll be a criticism that I've heard too many times, and I'm ready, I'm already losing my audience talk to us in the middle of battle. He's lost, everyone's gone. And the person who's supposed to be covering his back is pulling a dagger wearing this shove it in the provider, you know, church to him. And he tells me I want, you know, for you, you want badness for yourself. You want I want it for you. But you know, you even know what's good for you. And I know what's good for you. I want what's good for you, but you don't know what's good for you. I almost feel the Pragati usados me saying that to everybody. Like when you think about it out of your soul,
do you think about his life Alia salatu salam, it's like he's saying this to everyone. I want what's good for you. You just don't know what's good for you. You you, you want what's bad for you. You keep on making the wrong choices, you're harming yourself, listen to me, because I want what's best for you, you'll listen to what I'm telling you, you'll be better, you'll live better, you'll be happier. stop harming yourself by making the wrong choices to Allah. If he still had time to say that in the middle of a war in the middle of war. I don't know. I don't know I Adam just killed the guy.
And then gone after his father later on, because what a horrible way to raise your son to be such a traitor but he didn't. He won him over on a slaughter was that I'm in shape. I'm in with my name. And I will continue to be one of the great worries of Islam. He would die Shahid years later for the sake of Allah subhanaw with that transition.
To me, that's his magic, if you want to call them a sorcerer. That's his magic, then, if you want if you want to call him that, that's the name. If someone wants to use that to describe him, it is salatu salam, well, that's his magic. The way he was able to affect people, the way he was able to turn hearts, they was able to reach you reach you are in a in a place where no one else was able to reach you is to come to that one piece inside of you that needed remedy. And just and just pat on it and just say it's okay. And then the person would change. And then the person would find meaning for themselves and they would Salalah Holly was like, he had so many opportunities to be to be just
firmly just at moments that he didn't chose he chose to be chose to be merciful. Allah Allah salAllahu Salam.
This is the verses that exist
and then sorted to learn Toba,
the cardinal Salah Kamala, who female well cleaner aka theologian, Warrior Ummah, who name is RJ Bascom cathro to come. Column Dongyang Zhang kimchi, Baba, Ali como BMO Rafa, but soon I will lay to motivate in two minds that Allahu Sakeena tell who Rasulullah he was, meaning, what is Allah Junoon the lamb Tarawa as well as in a CAFO are the leakages theory figurine. Indeed, Allah has granted us victory in many moments during many events and battles in your lives.
I however, is with the icing on the dam for name
is RJ Kassala to come when you became vain because of your numbers.
When the disease of origin found its way into your hearts,
there are four major diseases of the heart for number one is vanity or job number two is Kibito. Arrogance. Number three is ostentation, Ria and number four is mv acid is almost Jonnie, no disagreement on this amongst the scholars of this of this discipline. These four if you find ways to if you remedy them, if you fix them, if you heal them, then the rest of the diseases of the art will go away. They'll just kind of start to fade away on their own, we have to take care of these four major ones.
what it means is when you feel full of yourself, vanity is the way you see yourself. Not in comparison to others. It's just the way you see yourself. Arrogance is the way you see yourself in comparison to other people. So the different things, that it is what I feel that I'm worthy of praise, that I am the center of attention and that I am the spotlight, and that I am worthy of being praised and being thanked because I have done so much and have achieved so much. So it's my view of myself as vanity. Arrogance is where I think I'm better than other people. I may not be great, but I'm better than for that. Or even maybe worse than that a group of people to biller. These two are
very problematic, and everyone has a certain degree of them inside of them and everyone has to get rid of get rid of it. Racism is just collective arrogance. That's all it is. This collective arrogance instead of being individual arrogance is collective instead of me thinking I'm better than all of these people. Well, one person is I'm better than all these people who come from the same background. It's an arrogance where I'm generalizing over a lot of a large number of people. So what happened was Sahaba. On that day, there's quite a scene is a geometrical construct to come. When you looked at your numbers you'd like we'll be fine. It became vain because you had higher numbers.
Because before that, if you go with us go back to school. It's a little early and Brian, we talked about budget, what do you say?
Well, I've got no solid formula if I didn't know what you
What? Quantum Adela. When you were humble,
though, you had humbleness and humility. Maybe one of the reasons the humility is the numbers were small. So they actually were able to generate proper humility and humbleness. So Allah granted the victory, or the name they felt a little bit
12,000 There 20 alum fine. Actually remember, we weren't we were like a 700 of us, there was 1000 of us. There'll be nothing. So the drop there, this is very important. You would think that they were entitled to do that? A little bit, maybe a little bit. Maybe after 10 years of struggle? What has it been now? It's but what year is this? This is close to year eight, right? And of your 813 s 20. That's the 1113 years at the beginning. And as we're coming to almost 20 years, 20 years with the Prophet Allah, you saw to the struggle, multiple battles where they were always had the lower hand. When he stood their ground. They felt for a moment. Yeah, I mean, it's okay. Have a little bit of
that, Eric, a little bit of vanity. No, we dropped our guard, just for a minute, we dropped our guard just for me, because just just for this one, we just went in the valley without listening. No.
You make a mistake, you don't do your job, you fall foul doesn't matter who you are. Doesn't matter who's with you. That doesn't matter what merit you got. Doesn't matter. You don't do your job, the way you're supposed to disobey the profile installer to send you a law that does allow corruption to enter inside. This is one of the scariest stories in the CLI actually is one of the serious stories in the Quran. I find it extremely, extremely scary. Why? Because I'm imagining an army filled with all of these amazing names. Everyone was there, right? This is funny. No one was not there. in Bethel. There were certain people who didn't make it just because they weren't there that day. Not
everyone was there. Same thing. Same thing. 400. But on the day at 14, everyone was there because everyone was there from Jamaica. Everyone attended for everybody on the way back, everyone's still there. So boquerones Man,
Man, I really thought I was going to say to Abdullah, everyone was there, you're talking all the big names. And yet a little bit of vanity would enter the hearts.
The whole army would call the profit out of your Serato so I'm getting close to dying.
And the Quran would record it in our judge comcastro to come by LM Tony uncom che and they did nothing for you. Your numbers did nothing for you. It benefited you in no way at all. Well, ba na como Adobe Morocco button, this wide array that was in front of you became so tight, and you suffered, oh, you felt you were suffocating inside of you had to run that mower lay to the brain and then you turned your backs and you ran. But then Allah subhanho wa Taala would descend his serenity and tranquility upon the heart of his Prophet and those who stood by him, and he would send his troops that you could not see instead of Jerusalem, why and that he punished the disbelievers and
that is the end that is what they deserve with alligators that will go finian that is the that is the due diligence of the cover of the disbeliever on that day. But he pointed this out, you became vain. It didn't help you at all. If the Sahaba with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam after 20 years of perseverance. 20 years of perseverance and striving and Jihad allowed a little bit of a job to enter their hearts and they were punished for it immediately.
Now, what are we going to say really? If all of our efforts are somehow corrupt,
Dawa cannot be corrupt. It can't
the hour that has somewhere in it an agenda or a bias the hour that has somewhere in it an unhealthy competition or unhealthy competitive streak or or direction Dawa. That is that is not purely for the sake of Allah, thou that does not focused on serving people and only serving people is corrupt and it doesn't do anything. Which is why we haven't we haven't been able to make the progress we want to make as Muslims because of our ancestors are our teachers for a moment let their guard down. And a lot a little bit of vanity to make it inside their hearts. It's a little this argument is happy with the numbers. They were just happy about the number didn't say they didn't even say it because felt
that like we're good. There's 12,000 of us will be fine. The dependent in their hearts for a moment on something besides Allah commanded immediately they felt immediately they fell in the Quran would would document their fall. The Quran would did it mean read this verse every in the Quran?
Every Ramadan you have to hear it recite it. Is it right comcastro to come. You don't want to hear I'm pretty sure that was a hobby was Jonathan want to hear it again? Be able to be reminded, yeah, we shouldn't have done that. Every every time you can read it again and again and again. So the mistake doesn't happen again.
That we don't allow
ourselves to be corrupt. Because once you bring arrogance or vanity, or envy or Ria, into any act of worship, whatever that act of worship may be, you corrupt it. And once you corrupt it, it no longer is no longer. There's no Baraka in it, it doesn't serve its purpose, and it will eventually fail. Which is why we have to be very, very careful, and very, very clear. We have to continuously watch your intentions, what's your heart? Why are you doing what you're doing? What is What are you hoping to achieve? Who are you serving? What are you fearful of? What are you hoping to be there for why has to be for Allah, you have to remove from it, you have to remove from it and he self service.
I am saying this because it's just, we have to do better we have we all we have to do better. We have to do better as Muslims, we have to, we have to understand that the act and the act of Dawa is sacred, the sanctity the holiness of the acts of data has to be protected.
Those who are going to be performing this Act have to be properly trained and taught. They have to learn to remove the rid themselves of these problems, that they're not ready yet and they wait until they are because the moment these actions are based on something different they don't they're not fruitful anymore. And if you don't believe me to read this verse, Allah subhanaw taala points out to the people that will Sahaba ij batch conquer Thoreau to come.
You'd like to your numbers became vain because of your numbers. What are the numbers do for you? Well, I'm Tony uncom. Che did nothing for you. It was never about numbers to begin with.
Vanity, a little bit of vanity, a little bit of self
admiration. It's a little bit of self admiration will lie gebe Yes, yes.
Well, I feel that sometimes Danny, we're in a different galaxy from what this verse is talking about. A little bit of self admiration caused him to feel
what are we going to do? Well, Allah He, I have no what are we going to say? I don't even know how we're going to explain what it is that we're doing. But this is what the IRS says and this is what Allah subhanaw taala explained to them. And just be very careful in your life. If you do something for the sake of Allah, do it for the sake of Allah, expect nothing in return. Listen to me very carefully. expect nothing in return. Not only that, be very clear on the fact that you want nothing in return. And if something is given to you return it because you want nothing in return. Be very careful about this. You're going to certainly take care of somebody, take care of them for the sake
of Allah do not expect them to thank you, or to be grateful towards you, or to praise you just do it. If you're doing it for the sake of Allah do it for the sake of Allah or else although I'm not doing for the sake of Allah expect one and two in return. You can have about both ways. You can't you can't have both ways you can do it for the sake of Allah but I also want to return a good reputation and people to remind me to remember me in a good way people know I'm doing it for the sake of Allah and only for the sake of Allah then you want nothing in return.
People have older our stuff when they did something with make of Allah they actually put an effort to make sure that no one knew that they were doing what they were doing. So there will be no way for anyone to do get the thank them for it. So it could be actually fully for the sake of Allah in nama no blame will come the wedge he led learning resuming come Jessa and what actual Cora we don't want from you a back or or gratitude or Thanks. We're just doing it for the sake of Allah, take it and leave people around, take whatever huddling with and go I don't Don't Don't, don't come back. I don't want anything from you. But I want this from someone else, not from you. That degree of
selflessness to make sure the acts of Dawa and service within the Muslim community
And without that, we're going to have a problem, which we already do. You definitely, definitely really do. And this has to be dealt with in somehow.
Today, Pauline, after the Muslims heard that bus and they regrouped in the park down that valley and above it saw some organized his lines. It was a swift victory. It was swift. It didn't take much. One of the stories of honey the property is taught to Islam as the only who drink this could pick up
a handful of soil from the from the earth. And he would throw it and say show me the faces all the defeated today. And the people on the other side from printing. Those who didn't die is that every one of us had sand in their eyes that they are the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and he and he stood his ground out of his salatu salam with his mother and they were victorious and Talib and Alison, out of desperation, had come out to this valley with all of their warriors and they brought with them all of their wealth. This was a tactic that all of us to use to make sure no one ran. It's a very interesting tactic actually. It's actually been studied militarily a couple of times by
historians where if this was like, you know, live or die type of battle where this is the law
They wouldn't just go with their army, they would bring their children, their wives, their their livestock, their gold, everything. And they put it right there. The way she ran, you left your children and your wealth behind. So you're not running, you're gonna fight until the end. This was their tactic and, and when it was the big deal, that's what would happen, you'd find the two armies fighting, and everyone was there with everything. The winner takes all those people that was in to make sure that people stood their ground, brought everything and lost everything. They lost everything, the amount of bounty and loot that was taken after the day of reckoning was insane. The
number of stories that I have in the books of Hadith, and I haven't read many of them over the last year and a half of the Pragati has talked to us and I'm just giving away wealth. And the the incidents that occurred as he gave away the wealth, but I'll tell you, some of them a number of them Inshallah, within the Halacha is very high because he was given the amount of bounties that he had to distribute amongst Muslims. Yeah, and he was was just very high. And we were talking about livestock talking about sheep and camels and gold and just a lot of a lot of wealth. So when he did when that was brought to him money he sought to send me start to give the wealth away. And amongst
the people he would give to, you would give to the newer Muslims,
like Sephora and omega, for example. And like it was a female soccer club and how
you would give them which would later be documented in sort of the Toba as well more lft Kulu, boom Zika is given to the Pokhara and to the Messiah keen, to the poor and the needy. There's also another group that is deserving of Zika. There's eight groups that are you'll find in this area and number so the call to the phone call, right your Mr. Keeney when I'm in LA when I left you Hello, boom of your record, he will hurry me off, he said we rely on yesterday. So he talks about the more leverage of global home.
And whenever following their hearts, I love it means the hearts that need to be bought, or their hearts that need to be brought in. The provider you saw to stand apart, but part of it wouldn't be he would give it to those new Muslims, whom whose Islam are still weak. And when there's a wait, it was a way of buying their loyalty was a way of encouraged giving them incentive, giving them incentive to be stronger Muslims, they would give these people a lot of wealth. So it was a few hours talking about how do we give him he gave him and he asked him for himself. So he gave him and he asked for his wife. So he gave him then he asked for his son. So he gave them they gave him so
much wealth that there was a fee I said, you understood Allah gave me Why do I take all this, I can't take all this out of CLA Jamelia, Camilla, who may then someone to carry this with me. And he told him this, I
told him, the white male who had that he took it on your own levels of yarn, so carried on your own, carry it by yourself. It was it was more symbolic than it was.
It was more figurative than it was was literal. It was if you had obviously brought someone to help them carry it, but he understood the message, like you took this, you're going to be responsible for it.
You're ready to you're carrying it, you carry it alone, you carry the responsibility of what I gave you, in front of Allah by yourself, because you took it by yourself.
And I find that to be very profound.
Remember that in life, whatever it is that you're given, whatever you
carry it by yourself.
You, you have to, you have to take care of it. And then you have judgment, you have to argue you were through, you have to have a good foundation of what you did with it. You took it, you carry it. As he told him it was a feeling like I was telling someone to help me go no, no, you took it, you carry it. This is you. I don't I'm giving it to you. But you have to understand that you carry it and, and to me that's just very, very meaningful.
I don't think I have time to tell you the story.
It's hard to not to tell, but I'll leave until next time and show a lot of things happen during the 48 hours. This is like the most condensed 48 hours of CLL that I have. A lot of things happen in these 48 hours, two days for the body and Saltos and after inane was getting away that a lot happened. Why? Because naturally when there's a lot of money involved, a lot of interest is involved as well. So people remember everything. Money. So people were watching and listening and everything that happened was remembered that day, they brought out a slot those them was giving. And as he was standing there getting a play the story now look, there's a guy who can show so I'll give you maybe
another three or four minutes you guys can run it Okay, then I'll tell you this one story then we'll continue next next week. So the audience thought was Sam is giving away the winner. By the way he took, he took away nothing that day, but we'll talk about that later. He's giving away the name and American comes from behind him the provider someone's wearing a bowtie in the Jelani Valley over here. He's wearing a board the board is the thing that comes on top of this that you just take off if you've ever seen it, that's the board. So he's wearing that out of your software so it has a heavy color. It's a very thick color, and it's in it's buttoned up in front so the man comes and he
takes the profit and it's on by the collar like this and he twists his arm to the providing a slot to assemblers now this is stuck to his to his throat he can barely breathe your poor who are plenty. I mean, mallala he lamb in Malika while I'm Imani avec, give me from the wealth of Allah I don't want your welfare one finger father Mashallah.
Oh yeah nice amazing amazing again how he did not turn around out and just talk to him and just yeah and he missed a lot of the I don't know how but he how he did it well I don't understand how he does it like how he's he's he took nothing with him that the audience like all he cared about was taking care of these people and if he comes from behind him and he twists his arm of course I'm going to see is this oh my god I cannot pull his sword quickly enough like he cannot eat he's already sorted already out and this man's head is going to be rolling in with the raw value sorry he's sending every month leaving leaving Korea out of there and you have to just let me go and I will give you so
he let him go
find a hotel you will leak about so he there's a mound of wealth take all this boiler law that the feta well our fate This is not good. And this is not enough. It was a holiday or any event you want to call for for so many ideas Sahaba Tisha Heelan you can hear the Sahaba I literally daddy breathing heavy and they're getting really upset with this with the manner of this man for the provider you saw doesn't bother me Come with me. So it takes so many enters a tent
before the Artica your leak. Now know. What can I get? I had this your leak is good enough. No. What can he kept on adding to the hotdog like that now I'm gonna lead.
Now I'm really just like, Hola. Hola, Nico. I'm happy because they asked me Oh, Raj. But lately Nassima multileaf and homage to ficolo be him Malaika che i need you to come up with me and say to the people what you just said to me, because they are very upset with you. And the way that you've kind of acted so how about you come out? And you just say that to them? Oh god I'm so he comes out. And he says Allahumma Romney when Muhammad
shahada Oh Allah, show mercy to me and Muhammad and no one else will call to look at her job to watch the idea that this is something very was or the mob Allah, you've made it so small, but he takes the wealth and he and he and he walks away and said Allah, how do you stop yourself from tarnish the Sahaba and I'll end with this story. He says, my family for my favorite comb, or my fellow huddled module, my example the example of me and this man and you is the exact opposite to look at is the example of a man who lost his cannon.
And people want to get his camel for him. So the more they went after his camel, the farther his camel runs away, and he is saying leave my camel. I all get my camel. And they keep on running after his camera in his car cameras running farther away till they listen to him. And then he picks up a little bit of hashish a little bit of grass from the earth while you're hunting. It will be high a day when he moves in his hands like this. So the camel comes running. I don't know tell us to come one hour to the car and I mean I didn't know if I left you to do to him what you were hoping to do to him he would have been from Ireland now. He is someone who came and he mistreated the Prophet
audio salatu salam and was rude. He would have deserved punishment
but I didn't let you do it and now
this is what I think his model was
one more sold agenda. So I think his model was I don't I don't have evidence that you said that but that's why I think it is I think is just one more Soltan one by one we'll get you the agenda one by one. Every time I have an opportunity to get one more person's agenda I'll get that person's agenda
it's difficult but if the
price is his ego out of your slot to say I'm no problem if the price is my ego not Oh, that's easy. That's That's cheap. I'll pay that I'll pay that price every day of the week. If getting someone to Jannah the price is my ego paid, done no problem. No problem. But Allah Allah He was like you said why just one more salt agenda just by a little bit of a little bit more, a little bit of patience, a little bit of compassion and tenderness. And the man would go back and go back to his people.
