Early, you're not gonna be as meno bad tonight inshallah we continue from where we left off last week, in the spirit of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And today, we're going to talk about the the reclaiming of Mecca, Mecca,

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

which is an opening, that's what it means. And the Quran differentiates between Nasir, in fact, a little bit

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

nicer is the

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

is the final result, or it's the final victory party is a an opening, meaning it's a it's a semi victory that leads to another one.

00:00:36--> 00:01:03

But the vote has to open something right, you have to have an opening. So it's a victory that opens the door for another one. And that's why the conquering or the reclaiming of metalwork. *a was called fat, because it opened the door for what was going to come next. Him himself he himself out of your slot to assemble is not going to be around for the majority of what was going to come next from the reclaiming of Mecca. But that's why Allah subhanaw taala called it.

00:01:05--> 00:01:39

And that's why the Sahaba would use that that term, the same term was used to describe the Treaty of Arabia, if you remember, we talked about this a number of weeks ago, that Allah subhanaw taala, when he spoke of solando Davia, he called it in fact, that's what we read, besides total fat. It's not talking about the reclaiming of Mecca is talking about the Treaty of for Davia. And the reason that he uses these terms subhanaw taala, is because there's a differentiation between fats, which is a semi victory that will lead to another and Nasr which is the final product, which is what you're hoping to achieve. And we'll talk about that because I've explained to the muscle many times in the

00:01:39--> 00:01:50

past, but I'll hopefully do it through this example. So you understand exactly what Allah subhanaw was looking for what he considers as victory when ALLAH SubhanA actually considers us victory doesn't consider

00:01:51--> 00:02:24

he does not consider these these battles that are one No, these are. These are these are just milestones checkpoints on the way to get you somewhere. The muscle is something different now. So there's not there's no blood involved now. So it's not about carrying a banner on top of the head of so no, no, no. So there's something completely different and I think understanding that will make will really change your perspective hopefully. And if you need one and I've done the seal so and also in English and Arabic so you can go back and listen to them in more detail if you want to. So what happened I gave you omit let me break down the story for quickly for you if you didn't weren't

00:02:24--> 00:02:58

here last week or the week before. The Prophet Alia Salatu was Salam after signing the treaty of Libya with the people of Mecca. He knew that the possibility of them actually sticking to this treaty was very low. So anyway, at some point they're going to break break their word, and he wanted to be ready when they did, because he was hoping his goal he never he never lost sight of the goal. The goal was to get back to Mac if you can replay Mecca, everything will everything will just fall into place. All the bricks will just land where they need to the piece of the puzzle was settled nicely. So he never stopped doing that it was always ready he was waiting for when they were going

00:02:58--> 00:03:38

to make that mistake because it was just a matter of time because we just couldn't handle the number of people who were entering Islam within this year. It was just becoming very difficult. There's too many people like the people sitting in production like who default on our Muslim you got to be kidding me who are slim or non Muslim. Oh my god. Oh, what's happening like the numbers are just full tribes full tribes are just entering into Islam. The prophet Ali Asad ism went from like 3000 to 25,000 in just a year. And just to yourself Christ became very antsy and they were not happy anymore. So this which led to what ended up happening where we're a Bucko the allies of Quraysh, who

00:03:38--> 00:03:51

had a grudge or a problem with Kusa, the allies of the Prophet Allah has sought to Islam wanted to take it out on them as they were coming for Amara so they told clay she wants to do this of course he's already very fed up and like yeah, go kill whoever you want kill them all. So they would kill them in the Haram

00:03:53--> 00:04:30

but the second fly TT hood, Jeddah rocket saloon, our canvas agenda, they caught us in the T which is a place right outside of Mecca where they would fill water. So they go for O'Meara, and they slaughtered us as we prayed and prostrated, and in the little corner, they would run to the Haram they run after them and they would slaughter whoever is left only one person made it from Jose they went Bromborough horrific crime, you would go to their leader would at Benoit and Jose who lived in Mecca. A lot of the till this day, by the way, elderly people living in Saudi and people would go and retire him till this day till this date. If you're old and you're done and you have enough money

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

you go you will take his place in Mecca and used to in your retirement Mecca so you can continue to pray. So would they even work out an older gentleman from Husa from a completely different tribe lived in Mecca because he wanted to beside the Kaaba, they loved the Kaaba. He just had a messed up way of understanding with a mill worker had accepted Islam at that point. He was living in Mecca. They come and tell him this what happened so he says I'm Ottoman Salim and I'm going to insert him would go to the Prophet Allah your sources on horseback he would say that you give the poetry your have been Nina she didn't Mohammed alpha be here.

00:05:00--> 00:05:27

Urbino Athleta costumer will then work on our leader to matter as Lemna. valon Nunziata. And he kept on going out he said, this beautiful poetry the Prophet, I just I was listening to the story, you're telling the story what happened through poetry? So he will say no. So today, I'm gonna sell him, you're going to find Vic, you're going to find Muslims, who will stand by you, you're going to find the aid and find the support. This does not leave us. Right. You don't go back. You don't tell a soul but you just told me and how to was sitting there. So he told how to the same.

00:05:29--> 00:06:01

Part of it assigned to Sam would do a lot of Muara, meaning he would you would confuse people as he always did, because there's always spies. So it made everyone think that they were going towards houses and houses and lost their minds because they weren't ready for a war and they couldn't stand up to the power, the strength of the Muslim army at that point. So they were all preparing themselves and he wasn't going to he wasn't at all he was just kind of misleading everybody. I just thought the restaurant he told eventually it will come out. And they spoke for a long time on what was much more on the aggressive side or more wanted, didn't want this, this hiding thing. We go out

00:06:01--> 00:06:34

we declare they broke the treaty. They slaughtered people on the Harlem how many more people yesterday do they have to kill? And how many more people who have to kill of us before we go and we and the Prophet Allah is awesome. You had to move away he telling him calm down. We need we want to do this with the least amount of bloodshed. This is the Sahaba hearing. They're trying to listen that is dropping but they they're hearing his voice go up ya rasool Allah, Allah who could they did this in the province calming him down? No, no, we're not going to do it that way. Because he could only get started he couldn't take the army and just marched down and have a war. It could be a

00:06:34--> 00:06:37

bloodbath. But he didn't want it that way. He he specifically wasn't trying to do it.

00:06:39--> 00:06:47

And of course the story were halted would send the letter it'd be caught, brought back and the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam would throw the letter to Khartoum and say Mohammed Al Hassan,

00:06:48--> 00:07:23

what is this? How could you do this? How could you send them a message and how to bro the Allahu Anhu would apologize. People would be very upset with him but the Prophet Allah Sato someone say Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, anybody in Africa in Cebu ama Luma, Shipton Rutherford Tula Ko, maybe Allah looked at La La here is maybe but it would actually means is that it actually occurred, Allah, I look at people and say, do what you want, I will always forgive you. Because in life you just need, you just need one big deed, something very, very worthy, like just something big. And then Allah subhana, Allah will look over a lot of the smaller mistakes and the lack of the lack of

00:07:23--> 00:07:43

sincerity and the shortcomings. And obviously you need to continue to pray and do your thing. But all of the deficiencies and the deficits in your in your daily routine and how you can be forgiven if you just if you just dedicate yourself to one one thing one big, so how stood there on the day budget, it was good. It was good. You could make it you could make a mistake mistake that was literally treason.

00:07:45--> 00:08:03

Treason at the time of war. And still he would be good. I'll be Allah who I know and the prophet Isaiah. So we'll use these words. And I think it's very worthy of our contemplation, they would end up moving an army of 10,000 people 3000 people on horseback. These are numbers that Arabia had not seen in a very long time since Ebola.

00:08:04--> 00:08:40

Since the only safety isn't you have to go back again in Arabic history time where an army of that magnitude ever existed. And it to be to be that I need diverse was very rare. They had seen something similar in law ZURB. But it wasn't under one banner. Do you know that they were called the Confederates because each one was under their own banner. They had the same goal. But they didn't follow the same leader. Here. It was Muhammad Rasulullah. So I said them. There was one leader, there was one person who spoke and everybody listened. This was very valuable. This is something that made a huge difference. When you have people working towards a goal, but they don't follow one

00:08:40--> 00:09:10

form of leadership. There's all these different banners, there's all these different groups, you don't get the job what we say and that's the example. That's why the Confederates didn't weren't able to get anything done too much quarrel and too much problems on the inside. But the Prophet alayhi salatu salam united people, he brought them together. And it was an army that was united, they marched towards houses and houses and were losing their mind. They were considering leaving the Yaniv all together when they put together an army to actually defend themselves and that's going to become very relevant very soon. The fact that they put together an army to defend themselves has

00:09:10--> 00:09:35

become irrelevant after Botanica immediately and I'll connect that for you very quickly, or very soon inshallah. Whilst he was close to help us and just before they were in the horizon, for them to be seen, they would change route and they would, they would gallop as quickly as possible, down into Maccha. Arriving, arriving at the outskirts of Mecca with Holly didn't deal with either the Allahu Anhu right in front. And it was a message that I'm coming to you with your own.

00:09:36--> 00:10:00

If he fought with you for years, the person leading my armies hunted in the lead not some not not someone from the unsought from a different note. I'm bringing you the son of Mecca, the beloved son of Mecca, the jump of Mac, everyone loves it. Everyone was extremely, was extremely impressed in awe of his ability. He was extremely intelligent and very, very capable. So he was right there that was for them for people.

00:10:00--> 00:10:32

Mecca that brought down the morale like like, oh my god, like you don't have anyone. Yeah, everybody in the world it has to be you right in front. I didn't McCarthy McCarthy, who are the main men around the writers or be the new genre also, the stone, the beloved son of Mecca, and on the left was his Zubaydah, but I was also a person for all these are Furoshiki these are people who are from the from the middle of the lineage of Piraeus. She didn't come to the malleus autosome with foreigners. He had the people carrying the batteries, and then the battery itself being carried by Saddam and Obata. In the middle, right beside him out of here salatu salam

00:10:34--> 00:10:40

did they do they camp outside of Mecca? The Prophet alayhi salatu salam tells them I want 1000 fires tonight

00:10:41--> 00:10:47

10 There's 10,000 people right so that's what every 10 People make a fire 1000 fires

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

the story goes that Ibis

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

indivisible Talib

00:10:53--> 00:10:58

and it was Sophia and are standing there and they see fire starting to light up.

00:10:59--> 00:11:31

Got it I bet you have a Sofia and Magda what is what is this? What was what were their call? Hola. Hola, Yanni. Husa. Maybe Jose is upset through here. There's two three fires. And then the fires became 40. Connie was Sofia Mahad Allah Allah Maha Muslim Molly far. Maybe they have a few more trips. And then it became like 150 fires. I have a Sofia icon and a lot of fun maybe a lot of fun is again him hustling he's a mercenary he'll you'll you can pay him off. He'll do anything.

00:11:33--> 00:12:16

A couple of minutes later. 200 fires 400 fires. Today I was Sophia and I'm kisser ah, who is this Hercules or Kisara where there's like 1000 fires. But for welcome boo Sofia yonder cada Mohamed Salah Muhammad. There's no this is this is nothing but him. 1000 fires in the horizon Mecca saw that day, the prophet Allah has started trying to beat down the morale so that there will be a surrender. So there's no bloodshed, he's trying to make the so what happened was, I bust him I'm gonna call him just before this, I'm gonna just take a step back. Because this wasn't known. That was a fan he didn't know yet. And I burst as the prophet either you saw two summers coming for the hammock? And I

00:12:16--> 00:12:48

buzzed him. I'm gonna call him. We don't know for sure whether he had accepted Islam before, or whether he accepted Islam that day? I don't know. So you can don't come and argue with me because I honestly both opinions are valid. And there's merit to both opinions. I don't know which one is the correct opinion. I tend to think that he probably was Muslim before. But you could easily argue against that mean, there's more. There's evidence on both sides. I tend to think he was a Muslim much before that. But he would perform, he would come to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam before he was outside of the outskirts of Medina, to actually analysis Islam in front of everyone. The Prophet

00:12:48--> 00:13:20

alayhi salam was extremely happy with his uncle making it because the Prophet Allah has lost a lot of family members right? He has lost Jaffa Have you thought him he lost homes I'm gonna put him he lost. They didn't inherit a lot of the family his children and he has a lot of family members has got have gone from Somalia south to Assam. So he was so happy that I burst accepted Istanbul cada Maha Janina our best the last version is la bussola Jota Biden. And there's no danger after after we do this mean he will never be someone who wants to do for him. He's you know from Mecca to Medina goes no need anymore. So the last person who you can call him or her agenda will be that person

00:13:20--> 00:13:28

Abdulmutallab is the last person who made it. So the Prophet alayhi salam told him go back and see if you can talk sense into them. Go back and see if you can speak to them about

00:13:29--> 00:13:37

about surrendering and giving up you don't want this to be a budget. So I best said I'll do my best. So he was our best. So now understanding that you know that this little

00:13:39--> 00:14:10

ibis, standing in front of seeing the fires was kind of a setup. It was staged. And Ibis knew who the fires were for. He knew what he knew what was happening, but he wanted to kind of because it was the end is the is the leader. Now, it crema and Safwan remember I told you during Davia they kick there was a few I know and they did their own thing. Well, they failed in during for Davia. So if you have a crisis, like what have you done? How could you find something with him get out, you know, you shouldn't have trusted these young people to begin with. So they brought back into full leadership. So it was if Yan has no say, again, he's running things. So the Prophet Allah you saw

00:14:10--> 00:14:16

some thoughts where if you can just get a boost of yarn to mellow out a little bit we can probably get this done.

00:14:17--> 00:14:23

So I busted Yeah, but Sofian Hello, the Hubner Elijah Muhammad. How about we go to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, we can go to him.

00:14:26--> 00:14:27

And maybe he'll forgive you.

00:14:28--> 00:14:32

Of Kalia Kalia Ibis. While you're filing? Would you ever do that?

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

We should try on a bus. I tell you to get up too early. I came really late to his face. He asked me specifically did you do anything? Like was anything changed about this treatment? mistake that happened? I told him no. He asked me again. Like you guys didn't do anything wrong. And I just don't get nothing. I'm just here to renew it because I like it. I like to his face. And I came to Medina have already done I don't sleep. I was like, we'll go together. We'll have you behind me and we'll go in. We'll do it together. So now

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

busted on multiple inputs. That was a female socket admin hub and Alma wheel behind him and the enter the camp of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

The person standing on guard is

00:15:13--> 00:15:31

standing on guard. He's the guy who's you, who makes sure no one enters the camp. No one leaves the count. But I best had come in and left once before. So he understood that there was something between him and the Prophet. It is southwest and I'm so he's like, Alright, fine. So he's standing there. He's he's got a bus coming in. He's like, Yeah, come on, no problem. And then he looks up, and he sees it. Abu Sufian

00:15:32--> 00:15:52

Anthony, Alexa, give me your head, please. Your head. Your head. No, I want your head. No. So he runs towards him. And I bust Idaho in the Houthi God no, he's under my protection. So I almost said bless. You ought to look at you. You don't get to protect people like that today. Ibis. Panicked he needed a way to calm him down because online was already not too happy about this approach.

00:15:53--> 00:16:35

It's important to know that he changed a lot of the Allahu Anhu one of the most beautiful transformations you will find, historically, is how honorable haka alone changed when he became Khalifa, all of this aggression that you hear of all the strength and all of this, once he became amela, meaning it all went away. He became just as merciful as his leader. So Allah sent me his teacher. He became like his mentor, he understood when he became responsible, he understood when he became responsible, he said in the ASHA, and taka now I just don't fill Iraq. But only Europe be the Muslim to Abdullah Talia Jamar, I'm afraid on the day of judgment that a sheep walking on an unpaved

00:16:35--> 00:17:09

road somewhere in Iraq falls over and that Allah asked me or Ahmed, why didn't you pave the road for her? What were you doing? What were you What were you doing? Why don't you pave the road for them? This is what he was saying when he the middle minion, he would change Yadi why? Because when you when you teach people appropriate properly, once they just have to trust people a little bit, you mentored them, you lead teach them, you train them, and once they're in your position, they'll understand, but have mercy with them when they're not in your position. Like when you're when you can see things that they can't see, have mercy, have compassion, that they can't see what you see,

00:17:09--> 00:17:41

they just kept the Prophet Allah Islam saw things in a certain way. He understood the armor wouldn't be able to see what he has seen. He's just not in his seat, like you're in, you're in a seat. If you're not in that seat with me, you can't see the view that I have. So So show compassion and mercy to people who don't see things the way you do. If Allah subhanaw taala put you in the seats, and you have a nice view. And you understand, just be compassionate towards those who don't, who struggle with that, who can't see what you're seeing, and maybe because of that they behave differently, or they're not doing doing it the way they should or they're not acting the way they should. They just

00:17:41--> 00:18:18

don't have the view you got made. Because if you're arrogant about the fact that you see things correctly, they don't Maybe Allah takes away that view, maybe kicks you out of that seat, put someone else and no you don't have that view anymore, and you can't see things and you make the same mistakes. The Prophet Allah you saw to Islam, he he knew how to do this. He knew how to show mercy to someone who didn't. But he trained him well. And he taught him also when he took on the role of the leader. He became just as mellow and just as merciful and compassionate as Muhammad Rasulullah was and the Sahaba will say this map when no habla hadn't come up to Nana harbor Amar. We used to

00:18:18--> 00:18:27

revere Omar we were scared of him. Like we would be happy until he walked in then everyone would just would just quiet down. Everyone would stop. There was a

00:18:28--> 00:19:02

story where where the prophet Allah Islam is sitting and he's talking to some of the sisters and Omar comes in and they all kind of put the job and sit and sit quietly, quietly. Why is everyone quiet? For the canonically more rasool Allah Fertitta is now in queue. We were talking to him when you came in You scared us Takada. Yeah I do want you unfussy hidden to happen anywhere I have no soul Allah, but you're you're you're you're afraid of me and not what you're revealing me and not the Prophet. I think that's what that was about. But he had that about him. It was the Allahu Anhu. But that changed that change. And I think it's a beautiful, beautiful point to understand about his

00:19:02--> 00:19:29

character on the lawan. And I think it comes from the, from the training of his mentor SallAllahu Sallam who knew how to do it to know who was merciful and patient with people. He never yelled at almost by the way. Never got upset with him. Never told him stop objecting. Just listen. No. All right. All right. You have you have the right mentality. Your heart's in the right place, you'll learn you'll learn. And he did. And he didn't imagine if he didn't imagine if the Prophet alayhi salatu salam got fed up with on Mondays they get out of here, you're no longer my counselor,

00:19:30--> 00:19:44

we would have lost imagine like you can't imagine. It's not something you can imagine. If you remove them. They're on top as meaning from the history of Islamic law of Islamic empire. You can't you don't I don't I have no idea what would have happened. I have no clue.

00:19:45--> 00:19:48

I have no clue because what he did or the Allah who I know actually, there's a

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

book called The 100. I'm not sure if you ever looked at Michael Hart, where he talks about the 100 most influential people in the world. Now aside from the fact that he chose the prophets that I said

00:20:00--> 00:20:22

Tip number one, he has a hotline number 50 something but he actually has an uncle Bob has one of those people because during his time the world did change like the map didn't look the same. Had it not been him or the law who I knew in this place anyways, I will take that so it comes to him was a fairly is ready to chop his head off. So Abbas says Jamar, the whole who had the end of whom in many in many

00:20:23--> 00:20:25

Amina will O'Connor

00:20:26--> 00:20:49

in Unmaker lambda file so I'm you're only doing this you're on what you want to kill him because he's related to me. If he was your relative, he wouldn't have done this. Now, I best doesn't believe that. But he needs some way to come over and help Bob down. All the good part of homeowner is that he was very objective. And he was very self aware. And if at any point you pointed out that he was not being fair, he would stop. He stopped on the member.

00:20:51--> 00:21:25

I can't imagine doing what he did. He's on the member he's making a case someone screams at him that you're wrong and he accepts it. And I give hope because I find it very hard if you scream at me in the middle, but I'm not gonna admit I'm wrong. When I ask you to sit down and be quiet and let me finish my book. But he didn't really allow one. That was how sensitive he was he had a level of sensitivity that I can only aspire to think of being of having one day or the Allahu Allahu Allah. So he told him you only do this because he's related to me. If he was related to you know, kind of in a pub on bunny RT, which is where he comes from his you will let them go. So he would stop in his

00:21:25--> 00:22:02

tracks. They are bused to who to her. That's what you're saying. Albus Allah He yo Islam mica a hug boo la min la escuela Malhotra Willa Muslim. I can tell you that I was happier the day you've accepted Islam than the day had my father accepted Islam and he didn't. And rasool Allah He so I sent him a ferry hubback accelerometry for a Hilo Islamic kebab. Because the Prophet Isaiah was happier with your Islam than he would have been with my father accepted Islam. You're telling me that I want to kill him because he's really too but he calmed down. But he calmed down and that was if you had made it through, made it to the Prophet Ali's source and they're they're making his way

00:22:02--> 00:22:04

over obstacles very nervous, he doesn't know what to do. And

00:22:06--> 00:22:08

they run into Alina Talib.

00:22:09--> 00:22:41

And because they stopped at some point in the story, I burst in it and it was Sofia, and they stopped their camel and they start to discuss and argue a little bit. But it was it was like this is not going to work. It's not gonna work. I can't do this. I don't know how to I don't know how to speak to him. Like what do I tell him? I lied. Nobles wouldn't lie. People who have status they wouldn't lie like that. He lied. And he has no way around it. You can't say no. I meant no, no, he very directly came and he lied. He doesn't feel like he can defend himself. He doesn't feel it's going to work now. I just tried to convince him I even thought he was walking by it because he's

00:22:41--> 00:22:54

going to shift change change shifts with our Bob. So he sees them callable Sofia and monitor the court what are you doing here called Ibis I take to be here yeah tell you about a law student that will bring her mate maybe he maybe we can fix this with the Prophet Alia salsa.

00:22:55--> 00:23:05

Kala was Fei Li Mastana This is the second time now it was a feeling is asking Ali for some help. What do I do your ID? The caller ID Don't worry. If have really

00:23:11--> 00:23:48

struggled with this piece. It's very, very meaningful. Don't Don't worry about it. Just go to him. It'd be Wakulla who Ma is what to use to free us just go to him and say exactly what the sons with the brothers of us have said to him. Don't just say to him exactly these words of kala malerkotla is what to use. What did they say? Allahu Allahu Taala he la caja Salah Allahu Allah, you know, we're in canola, how clean indeed by Allah, you have been chosen over us. You've been given an advantage over us and we were wrong. I was wrong. Just say that to him. And it will be fine. Of course. Don't forget, he asked him this last time. Will it work last time you told him no. This time? He said no.

00:23:48--> 00:24:18

I'm terrified. 100% just told him this. He will not he will not hesitate. He will answer you in a way that will make you happy. Just say to him, I'll be Allah who can I be a part of at least I know exactly what to say. Because He knows the hearts of the prophets of Allah. Allah knows. He knows what's in the Prophet Allah is on his heart. You know, if you just say this, he won't be able, if you speak to him the way the brothers of usif spoke to us of that he will respond to you that we're used to responding to his brothers. Hands down. Why? Because of the two colons for what you think the Quran is for.

00:24:20--> 00:24:53

I can sit here and tell you a story in the Quran so that when you're in a position similar to someone who was in the Quran, you respond the way they did. That's the point. What's the point if you know the story, but when someone comes to me and apologizes to you, you don't accept it you don't open your heart so you don't let it go. What's the point? No, not Mohammed said Allah Allah Muhammad wa salam, obviously see the interview. Allison was going to hear those words and immediately respond the way you lay here will Soufiane Bacala for another interview, so I saw him Sophia and I take it anytime effective. You came to me you were lying before I was gonna say don't

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

worry, but he was on the horse on the camel so far away. But I'll tell you 10 our cadets, you came to me You lied to me. You told me nothing had

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

When you lied, I think that only you came to make a fool of me about Sofia and that was a few and gets all scared for a car. Wallah. He didn't say Allahu Allah Allah Allah Allah. Allah Who Elena when Cannella how clean the Prophet Allah your salt does and does not miss a beat. But Elijah three but Ali Kemal Yong Yong still hula hula hula Muhammad Rahim. I hold no grudge against you, Allah will forgive you and He and He is the Most Merciful. But Allah Allah, you're sorry.

00:25:26--> 00:25:55

It's like the Prophet alayhi wa sallam is living. He lived the Quran. He was waiting, waiting in his life for moments where he could practice something in it. This is how we're supposed to learn this book, honestly. Well, there's no other point of learning it. You learn it and you find the idea that talks about an ethic that is beautiful. And then you wait in your life for the opportunity. So you can practice it and say, I read it, and I did it. Europe, I read it and I did it the way you told me. And then this is a story that I love. I love this story so much.

00:25:56--> 00:26:00

What the prophet Isaiah Sawsan would do right after that, so yeah, it was a fun. Hello.

00:26:02--> 00:26:04

Lola, why don't you say that you know, in the law.

00:26:06--> 00:26:08

At that moment, I was Riffian was beaten.

00:26:10--> 00:26:32

At that moment. This is the this is narrated in the Natalya Bill alligator bit Hugill, one of my favorite stories there. Were about Sophia and breaks down. They started telling him Yeah, Mohammed ma o Solak. Ma Lemak. How patient you are. How loving you are. Mozilla stated the only evil Islam you're still calling me to Islam.

00:26:33--> 00:27:10

And after all of this, you're still trying to get me become Muslim. Most like you just you beat me. You beat me not with your army. You beat me with your ethics. I don't know what to do with you. Why are you still why you still care? Why could you possibly care whether I accepted Islam or not? After everything is happening? You're still trying to get me to become Muslim. You don't need to anymore. You beat me. You've taken me out of the equation. I don't mean anything to you. I don't matter anymore. Why do you care if I accept Islam? My also like your so your Salah Elverson assigment, from certain Latin, meaning you're trying to strengthen the relationships a family might also like us,

00:27:10--> 00:27:18

you'll never forget. We were friends one day you never forgot that Mark limit. You're so you're so patient. And he was saying to me, I'm hammered. You beaten me?

00:27:19--> 00:27:54

My dream. I don't know what to say. Yeah, you know, I'll say that, you know, Lola, and he said that Illa Illa Kalia was a feeling of calling Mohamed Rasulullah said Mohammed also. Nakata. Um, I heard that he called him in handshake. There's still something in my heart about that one. Not ready yet for Karina no worries. I got la isla in the love from you. hamdulillah hopefully that will help you on the Day of Judgment. Now you know in Allah Yes, you need Muhammad Rasul Allah to be attached to it. But La Ilaha illa Allah and so on. There's still something so hope there's still hope there's hope you have that there's hope there's hope you may need to there but there's hope. So the Prophet

00:27:54--> 00:28:08

is good we got something some Allahu Allah Samuel Selim. Very rare I don't the reason I love this story. It's very it's only a few words that I've been humbled how's the story in his book? Because I don't see a lot of examples like that. I haven't seen a lot of it in my life.

00:28:09--> 00:28:10

Where someone

00:28:11--> 00:28:22

just beat somebody else with kindness. You know, I mean, the triumph is not with the sword is the triumph is not with numbers the triumph was with was with

00:28:23--> 00:28:48

with caring with kindness with with love. The prophet is unbeatable Sofia and historically referred to hammock No, he beat him with love you he loved him. He out cared him. Your understanding was if you had felt that I can't compete with you. Why? Why did you care? explained to me I can't understand why you would care about me. You understood later. It's because he's also Lulu.

00:28:49--> 00:29:12

It's because he's also Lulu. It's different. There's a difference I was feeling you'd understand that he does things for different reasons. He has a different view of the world is a different understanding of life and what he's here to do. So he asked for someone who's not Muslim who doesn't understand Islam. They won't comprehend why the Prophet Allah you saw this at that moment, the leader of his do I need to go back and tell you what it was Sophia was Sofian.

00:29:14--> 00:29:59

A raised four times in Mecca for the prophets Allah said them to be killed. He He's specifically worked four times in arranging an assassination of the Prophet Allah you sought to ascend Abu Sufian. Then to people after the Sahaba inhabitated tried to get them killed. Abu Sufian was the reason the Prophet Allah you sought to ascend was not allowed to enter Mecca after a thought if I was Riffian was the person who actually led the Confederacy on the day of AXA the worst day that the Muslims ever saw in their lives with the day of conduct he loved them. Oh boost your spending more. This is going to Abu Sufian not only did he carry down the profit Alia sauce, his house he's

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

sold to people and he took the money for himself. Understanding this is what this person did to the Prophet Allah is awesome specifically.

00:30:10--> 00:30:49

My ozonic Mahala McKee told him how how patient you are. Why do you care? I don't understand how you could care. After I came in, he's just thinking about the last time he lied. The Prophet I think it's awesome. Heiser has a big she has a book of the number of times this person tried to kill him and ruin his life. But he killed still tried. He still tried. Why because another opportunity for him to practice the use of Ali Salam did right. Isn't their opportunity. He forgave that was one average opportunity. The second one was to call them to the belief to bring them back to Islam to bring them back to Allah subhana wa Tada. So we, he took the opportunity to do exactly what Yusuf

00:30:49--> 00:31:00

Ali Instagram did. Why? Because that's why the Quran is there. So they can read the story, learn the merit, the moral of it and then when the moment comes, you practice it some Allah Allah Islam use Allah.

00:31:02--> 00:31:42

Then Allah Abbas will come and say, Yeah, and also to Allah. He's not on board. 100% yet, maybe you give him something like give him something for his ego, because he's the leader of police. Prophet, Allah usados am Yes, no problem. Carla Coleman Dolla dolla, hoo, hoo, I mean, he sent in a communication to the people of coalition. If you enter your home, you're safe. Well, then duckula fina Ilica apertivo Am and if you're studying for the Kaaba or the Kaaba, then you're safe. Woman da da, da, Robbie, Sophia. And for women, you entered the house of Oh, Sofia, specifically, you're safe. It's a meaningless addition. Because if you're not your own home, you're safe. So unless

00:31:42--> 00:31:58

you're homeless, we should wish people weren't homeless back then. Everyone had like a place to stay, then you didn't need to go there with Sofia in his house, but he wanted to give us a little bit of a boost to his ego. Sometimes. Sometimes you have to kind of inflate people's ego a little bit. stroke their ego for a moment.

00:31:59--> 00:32:15

It's important that you don't need it in life. It's more that you learn enough about yourself, that you perform enough Teskey for yourself, that you don't require people to stroke your ego all the time, and tell you how great you are, and give you you know, exceptions and give you but it's okay for you to do that. For others who may require it.

00:32:16--> 00:32:50

Showing a little bit of respect for people who are in specific, certain positions is a part of our deen the Prophet, Allah usado. Sam was very, very sensitive to how he spoke to people from different backgrounds. When he was sitting with a leader, a leader who was initially a cashier, he was he would respect them, he would bring them to a place where they could be sat down and brought food, he would treat them as leaders. He understood that mentality it is taught to us and his goal was not to humiliate people. His goal was not to put people down and make them feel less about themselves. To this is the beauty of of having knowing him out of his soul to say what you missed. And what I

00:32:50--> 00:33:21

missed. What we all miss, of not knowing about yourself to sit on is the amount of empowerment you would have received Had you met him. So this is the this is the trick. This is the secret to his character, that when you spend time with him out of your slot with them, you never walked away feeling worse about yourself, feeling less about yourself, feeling threatened, feeling that you were not worthy feeling that you were wrong, or your life wasn't know what if you spent time with him ideas, thoughts, and you walked away felt you felt empowered, you felt that you were ambitious, that you were meant something, everyone who knew him felt in their hearts, that they were very special to

00:33:21--> 00:34:04

him out of his love to us. And that's the wording from every single Sahabi every Sahabi says he loved everyone. But he and I were were different. Like he liked me differently. Like I was special to him some Allah hottie Islam you send him, he treated everyone in a way that made them feel special, made them feel honored, made them feel valued, so hard, because you can only give so much before you feel empty. Before it's hard for you to give. But he has such a big heart symbolized he had this infinite amount of compassion to show. So he just he had no problem. He could just give and give and give. We have small hearts, so we can be kind to 123 and then I nearly go home and leave me

00:34:04--> 00:34:07

alone. I can't do this anymore. Why? Because we have

00:34:08--> 00:34:08


00:34:09--> 00:34:36

Well, it's empty, because it's not attached to him Salah as I said, if you attach it to him, then he'll fill it up with the love that he had. And then you can give it to others. And you can empower people, people love to be around him. And his thought was, he never ran away from him. They never felt that I don't want him to know, the only time they don't want to meet him is when they felt that they let him down. When they felt that he believed in them to do something and they weren't able to do it. And they and they didn't put their effort in they felt like I don't want to see him because I don't want to feel I don't want to I just appointed him out of your slot Twister Salalah audio so

00:34:36--> 00:34:47

I'm using them so I gave him a few on what he wanted to hear Madonna del Robbie Sofia info. It was a few I now feels Oh, so he goes into Mac and he says oh people have Maccha I have fixed the problem for you.

00:34:48--> 00:35:00

No sir limo Mohamed we're going to we're going to leave things for him. You won't fight and he says man Dakka Dakka who follow Him and everyone who enter his his house Mundaka fina acaba woman da da da OB Sophia so

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

Hi, Ben Harper, wherever you enter my home, then you will be safe. I thought about the moment FOBT was the point of your house study that'd be quite my aunt or my husband your you have status.

00:35:10--> 00:35:13

But the rest of the people in certain people we're not.

00:35:14--> 00:35:35

We're not convinced. So a small group of resistors actually did occur. You highlighted coming through the main entrance of Mecca, and you had a BB eight on the right and so being on the left, all together, the number of people I mean, I can move forward. I think I put the number for you here. I did. I hope we did. Can you give it a It's not listening to me.

00:35:38--> 00:35:39

Very good.

00:35:41--> 00:35:53

All together. Only 15 people died in this whole thing. 50 people seven, the opening of Zubaydah and eight at the opening of Aveda, no one in the middle of Mecca actually happened was just on the two sides that some people resisted and fought back.

00:35:55--> 00:36:27

The private audio silos and we'll tell it our best as the as the army is now marching towards the doors of Mecca to enter it tells us that bus ticket was if you don't have him sit on the mountain on top. There's a little mountain that can see all of the army kind of coming by the prophet if someone was if you wanted to. You wanted to get him. You want to get him as a Muslim you need to it was a viens key was power. He was a man of strength. He was a man of status. Compassion didn't work for him that well, he needed to see a demonstration of strength. Rather it just doesn't do justice. Keep bringing him to the mountain. So we stand on a mountain

00:36:28--> 00:36:53

and he's watching and he's saying how a batsman hooked up. He's seeing people march everyone is standing in line. Perfect lines. No one's outside. They're not just walking around. Joking playing No, this is an army. People are standing in line they have bleeders they are marching. It's one step footstep that you hear it's shaking the ground and he sees one group come through on a man who woulda, coulda, woulda Kabita together this is the tribe of Foolad

00:36:54--> 00:37:20

Islam when did they accept Islam? Oh, then another tribe comes by perfect lines perfect marching woman her older by her the tabula tabula and this is the this tribe. Oh, they accepted this one, except before as it goes up was a few and is getting more and more hopeless, as he sees the number of people coming through, and then he sees the Prophet alayhi salatu salam says are all dressed in black.

00:37:21--> 00:37:22

All in armor.

00:37:23--> 00:37:32

Everyone with their black MMR in their heads with the banner in the hands of Saddam and Obata the Prophet alayhi salatu salam on his camera. We'll talk about that in a moment.

00:37:33--> 00:38:12

And also he sees the this amazing site and ihana yeah bursts. He said I didn't talk about them. And Allah cut Bella MOLKO Ibni Ahikam a blog on Halima. Oh, the sovereignty. The Kingdom of your nephew has become amazing. The color Abbas Yeah, but Sofia and in lace Malika in her Naboo it's not sovereignty. I was a pianist prophecy. That was at the end. This is not to keys on a king. And this is not his sovereignty. This is not his kingdom. This is prophecy. I was with Yun. And that's when it clicked with him for a moment. That was if Jana was one step he wasn't ready yet. You said was the guy's very resistant.

00:38:13--> 00:38:47

If you say why do you just kill him? And get rid of it? No. I according to Mohamed salah, well, after Osama he will never say Mohammed killed his companions or killed his people. He didn't. He didn't. He would let things go. Why? Because you never know. Maybe you can say one soul say one soul from the hellfire and that's the biggest thing you'll ever do with within your entire life. The prophet Isaiah saw to Islam, as they're entering Saddam and Obama is carrying the banner aside got a little excited. You have every right to sort of know about it. I want you to imagine his perspective. He opened his house he opened the house of all his all the tribes of Medina to the

00:38:47--> 00:39:27

people of Maha God. It wasn't smooth sailing. A lot of problems happened. A lot of people disagreed you had to put up with people coming to his city taking over homes taking over resources. He had to go through a number of wars where his city was threatened to be demolished off off the of the map altogether. Croatia tried to kill him and his and the Prophet many times sad had had enough with what he said was not related to her he didn't care about them. So that is I got a little bit excited. And he said Leone yo mon Malhotra Alia who didn't know Allahu Qureshi. Today is the day of blood. Today Allah will humiliate Quraysh above Allah usado Islam stopped the whole army. Stop.

00:39:29--> 00:39:59

Like I said, in milliohm, Yeoman Malema today is a day of compassion alone who is Allah Who Qureshi today Allah subhanaw taala will guarantee will give grace the status it should have had from the beginning. It will because they're gonna accept the deen with us today. Yeah, aside, now clean your via give me the better. No, you can't carry the better. You can't represent the CSR after saying that. You can't represent this anymore. I'm sorry. You can't be the person carrying the banner if you said those words. Those words are blood that are there.

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

But blood seeking No, no, no, give me so sad didn't abide, his heart is broken. He was carrying the banner of the Prophet alayhi salam and the most important day of Islamic history for them. It's the moment of today when we look at Islamic history we see better, right? Because you learn that it's really not the moment of victory. That's the most important moment, just a moment of sacrifice. We'll talk about that later in shelter. But for people in the midst of it all is the day you're given the certificate is the day that you finally achieved your goal. You guys help us celebrate that moment. So sad was like so I'm carrying the banner. And it was taken away. The Prophet alayhi

00:40:33--> 00:41:09

salatu salam was giving a very clear message to everybody. We're not out for blood. We are not seeking blood. We never were. We aren't now. We never will. And anyone who brings that concept or that mentality to Islam is not a part of it. I'm sorry. We're not out for blood. It doesn't mean that we don't. I'm talking to you about the Prophet Allah. He says, I'm leading an army. So I'm not telling you he didn't. He led an army. And he defended himself and he stood for what was right. He fought when needed. But we are not seeking for we don't seek blood. We don't look for war. And we're not trying to kill people. And we don't want no this is the you don't have the headcount of people.

00:41:10--> 00:41:24

Heads rolling. No, this is not what we're looking for the Prophet alayhi salatu salam took the battery, you could have said sign, not a good thing and let it go. No, give me the banner. You can't represent me by saying that. But look at the wisdom of the prophets of Allah Salam who didn't give it to anyone. No.

00:41:26--> 00:41:28

Yes, his son face him inside him. And

00:41:29--> 00:41:53

those guys like well, you know, it's my son, so no problem faced with his own person. It wasn't like a 10 year old, it was a young man, very, very well established. So he gave it to his son. Upon on some Allah Hadees like you said, like, I'm gonna, I'm gonna have to take it away from you because I can't tolerate that type of talk. And I can't let people think that that's okay to say these things. But I'll give it to your son. So you can just be proud that both you and your son carried it. Inside was okay. But he learned the lesson. And I think we have to learn the same lesson.

00:41:56--> 00:42:32

Your Marisela coalition. Today there'll be honored why because Islam is coming to them. They'll accept to accept the deen you will enjoy it Allah Azza wa sallam I have I use these phrases. You'll see them a couple of times in the slides. I find the day of the of the reclaiming of Mecca Alisson for the history books and a couple of things. First of all, and first and foremost is peace. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam could have easily charged through the doors. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala either a halal or haram satin minha. Allah says, I told him, you have an hour. You can enter the Harlem with an army. No one really brought that up and it was telling the story. You're not

00:42:32--> 00:43:06

allowed to enter Mecca with an army period. This is the Harlem no one can bring an army into the Harlem. The Harlem begins from just after a minute. Just after a minute. That's where the Haram begins. And it's not just the gut when you say the word Halal you're thinking oh, so the GABA and the little domestic know the Haram is bigger than that. The Haram is a city the city of Mecca today. Maca is huge a lot of them. I lived in Mecca for years it wasn't inside the Haram I was outside the Haram because it's hard to actually live inside is very difficult. So we looked outside the Hunnam. So the Prophet Allah is sort of bringing the army into Mecca into the Haram that's he said, Allah

00:43:06--> 00:43:18

Subhan Allah gave me permission for one hour on a day, which is today that I entered to in the blood. You could have entered it he could have he could have brought the swords in but he didn't realize he used every tactic possible to make sure that there was no bloodshed.

00:43:19--> 00:43:30

Use everything. He changed of course, at the beginning, he came late, he scared their leaders so that they felt that there was no point he gave them peace they gave he gave them guarantee of safety, they stay in a certain place.

00:43:33--> 00:43:51

And it was achieved only 15 People only 15 people were killed that day. It could have been a bloodbath of 1000s of 1000s easily, but he was able to figure this out so that no one would be killed. You would enter some hola hola Yo sup yo Salam on his camel. And he would take his head

00:43:53--> 00:44:05

and you know the the main of the camera the mean of the horse so the camel has a mane as well it's not as obvious but it has one as well. So he would put his head down and he would stick his forehead on the main of the camel in front of him.

00:44:07--> 00:44:08

Usually if you enter

00:44:09--> 00:44:14

after 20 years of struggling and suffering and you're finally victorious

00:44:18--> 00:44:24

make sure your your roll shaved so you can people to take some pictures and you can later on turn into a statue somewhere enter

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

and wait you would enter some nicer limb with his head on the main of the column. Saying Subhan Allah who have become de Subhan Allah Han Aldine a stone's throw allah how to really Subhan Allah wa be Hamdi Subhana Allah hindlimb a stone here Hola. Hola, Tubal Edie, and I'll tell you why in a moment those specifically those two

00:44:46--> 00:45:00

would put his head and why and complete humility, in full humbleness and gratitude towards Allah subhanho wa Taala it is not me. I didn't do anything to deserve this. This is Allah Subhan does bouncing upon us. I'm not entering

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

This is how you'll be victorious.

00:45:03--> 00:45:36

You're gonna be victorious one day, you're gonna win something, you'll compete in some sport or you'll finally achieved something people told you you could never do or you know, despite the haters or whatever you end up getting where you want to go in life. How do you be? How do you behave when that happens? That will tell a lot. What tells a lot about your character is how you behave when you're when you hit rock bottom, and how you will behave when you're on the top of the hill. Everything in between is variable. I don't care like I don't know and no one does. But Allah subhanaw taala watches you extra close. When he's always watching jujitsu and people watch when

00:45:36--> 00:45:40

you're the weakest. When the prophesy Sam was the weakest

00:45:43--> 00:45:44

when he couldn't go back home

00:45:45--> 00:46:03

when he was stranded outside of MCC after, after being completely humiliated by the people of thought if and he had a 17 year old boy that he needed to get home. He had daughters you have to take care of because Khadija had passed away. You had miners at home, and he wasn't allowed to enter the village that he was born in. He was told you you're not welcome in Mecca.

00:46:04--> 00:46:31

I'm not welcome in Mecca. What do you mean? My father is Abdullah bin Abdul Muttalib What do you know Cosimo behead? Well biology into hilum behandeln Ballard? Well, he didn't want my wallet. How are they telling you? You're not allowed? You're held in this This is yours? What How could you who who has more ownership on this land than you do? The weakest he was out he had to ask someone to protect him to enter muck that night.

00:46:32--> 00:46:37

Remember the story. It really comes to him with the angel of the mountains. And he tells him

00:46:38--> 00:47:13

just give me a word. Or crumble it on them. Not one person will be left you'll enter Makkah to an empty city aside from Muslims just to tell you I just don't crumble it over Bacala as Allah when you have a German or slap him when you're poor, Lulu, maybe let them show us from their descendants will come someone will say La Ilaha in de la. That was him said Allah, Allah, you sell them at two weeks. At the lowest moment of his life. He says that I'm not making this up. He was asked tell us what Allah, what was the worst day besides your hood? And he said, Oh, why do you think God was my mistake? Because he fell into the hole and he he had his injury. So there we're assuming that Oh,

00:47:13--> 00:47:20

when he fell into the hole was the worst day of his life like no, it was fine. It was more like I got injured. No problem, the worst day

00:47:21--> 00:47:35

tominaga if he Pythonista led him or analogy. I was in a place called conda thigh lib. And I was walking aimlessly. I had no way I had no idea where I was going. I didn't know what I didn't know who to go to, or who to speak to who I didn't know what to do.

00:47:36--> 00:47:50

And he comes and tells him I can crumble the mountain luxr been right on them now. And he says no, that's him and his low weakest ally his salatu salam came out is on the top of the hill and Alyssa let me enters with his head on the main of his horse

00:47:51--> 00:48:02

in full humility to Allah subhanaw taala he has no interest in walking in with a parade. So people praise Him. And people don't even know he was teaching us a lesson. His for us. Yeah, he

00:48:04--> 00:48:41

if you were, we were all a part of that of that group that entered with him on a slot to us and we're on his side. This is our leader, his head his head is in full humility and and just in a demonstration of humbleness to Allah subhanaw taala it's not me I didn't do it. Whatever good you're seeing today is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and I am grateful to him and I'm humbled by the fact that I that he granted me this but I will have and don't look at me. They'll look at me and say look what he did no look at Allah subhanaw taala said that's what Allah subhanaw taala did I'm just I'm just enjoying this as you are. And I'm scared that I didn't do my job he put his head down so Allah

00:48:41--> 00:48:42

Allah you slap me you sell them.

00:48:44--> 00:48:53

They will enter Mecca. And the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam would you start reciting he would enter right in front of the Kaaba, you will see Bucha and helpful

00:48:54--> 00:48:58

Was that helpful? Can you use it? Why isn't it can you? Why isn't listening to me?

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

I just want to see did I add this on the second slide? I leave it here.

00:49:04--> 00:49:05

Go go one more. One more.

00:49:07--> 00:49:08

One more

00:49:11--> 00:49:12

go back. Go back.

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

Can I am I able to control this or no?

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


00:49:20--> 00:49:21

oh, it's off

00:49:26--> 00:49:59

so sorry, I have no good reason for this not to work. All right. So you'd enter somebody send them you would enter from the door to if you ever go to Mecca. If you go to the Harlem inshallah The doors have significance like all the doors have different significance. So the door of infection is called Boba Fett and that is the door from which the Prophet Allah you saw those and entered into Mecca on that day, that's where he entered and he was recited Pooja al Haku was a Huckleberry Finn in Alberta, Canada as a hookah indeed say that righteousness will come or righteousness has come or righteousness came wherever

00:50:00--> 00:50:30

You want this wording in the Quran is timeless. Well it is timeless. Say Huck is coming. It's on its way was a Huckleberry Finn and falsehood disappears, falsehoods. shrivels into nothingness because it's meat, it's worthless. It's nothing. It's just, it's just an image. It's an illusion that we believe for a while but it's not it has no essence to it will dissolve in Alba tilaka and as a hookah indeed, falsehood has always been meaningless. It's always been worthless. It's always been it's always been it's been you just fail to see it for a while.

00:50:31--> 00:50:33

The story goes as follows as follows.

00:50:36--> 00:50:38

You don't just have Allah Allah Samuel Salah Mecca

00:50:40--> 00:50:46

acaba that had on it, and around it 365 idols

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


00:50:49--> 00:51:30

gods made of rock, how Shalom to be anything, but that's what they were seen by the people. Imagine the cup with 365 statues that were revered as gods, where people would bring them food and ask them for blessing. And the the clergy that stood by those those idols made the money and made the deals and move the finances of the country around complete corruption. You will enter some hola heartiest like Musa and this is what the Ibanez hawk has in his Sierra, this is what will work that he has in his vazee and this is what imitation has a Clos, but all three sources of sealer that go back 1200 years all say the exact sell the exact same story

00:51:31--> 00:51:35

that the Prophet it is taught to us and I'm entered with a stick in his arm. And he would recite what

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

was happening about you know, in about the election as a hookah and he would point towards the idol and it would fall down. And then you'd point it towards an other idol and it fall down. And all 365 Idols he pointed out them so I sent them and they fell down.

00:51:53--> 00:51:57

This to me is the most important lesson is the lesson I live by. Now, here's the lesson I live by.

00:51:59--> 00:52:26

He lived there for 13 years, he had a group of Muslims that were all young, all powerful, all motivated. He could have always sought to destroy those idols. Many times in the past. You could have had Allegan Zubayr and palha. Inside Inside. And I've been Masood, and Obama anytime at night. You put a thing on your head, you wait for people to sleep you go when you walk a couple urine.

00:52:28--> 00:52:30

But that was tried before and didn't work.

00:52:32--> 00:52:33

Was that was that not tried before?

00:52:34--> 00:53:16

Who tried that before? Yeah, didn't work, didn't work. You see if people believe something, just breaking whatever thing that is not gonna change their belief. You see, the Saddam is just a product of a messed up mentality. It's a product of a feeling ideology. That is what it's a problem with, with worldview with perspective, it's just a product of a belief that is misled. Breaking the system will not change the belief, it will just make it stronger. So leave the sudden don't get Don't be, don't be distracted by the product of the problem. Leave that leave it alone, go and look for the source of the problem. When you fix the source of the problem. The product will fall on its own.

00:53:17--> 00:53:52

It's the sun will fall on it. Don't worry, the sun will follow soon. He just stood there and he pointed and they fell because there's nothing there. Nothing. Don't worry, don't worry about this. This doesn't mean anything. The project or the problem doesn't mean much. It's just look at the find out the root. Yeah. Look for the source. Where's this coming from? Forget about the the symptom, the symptom doesn't mean you go to a doctor and they just fix a symptom and they fail to find out the root causes an idiot Doctor forgive me. We're not good. You like this? Mount a doctor? is the number one description of any doctor on the planet. If Arabs is how they describe 99% of doctors, how is he

00:53:52--> 00:54:25

Mom, that's the first thing that a doctor has described us. And this is okay to say because I'm a doctor myself and I came from the Middle East. And that's what it was called many, many times by people who actually are related to me. So it's, it's a part of a part of the whole deal. But if a physician doesn't do that doesn't look for the root cause of a problem then they're not doing their job. The provider you sought to assign was really interesting to me 13 years in Mecca. Now one idol was broken. Not one never even talked about it. Never even told them to do it. Never even got them to consider it not worth it. Ibrahim Ali Salam brought down the idols they didn't they throw them

00:54:25--> 00:54:59

into a fire. So he learned Ibrahim is like are we not doing that's not going to work I have to do something different. I have to argue with them, how to discuss with them how to point out the flaws of their, of the system of thought that they have. I have to point that and once they see it once they see the value of what I have to offer they'll change the value solders around through thought process through logic and rationale through guidance through Dawa through through the Quran was able to change the mentality of Arabia and the US just fell down, one after the other Bucha because he was way too powerful. Was that happened about in Alberta.

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

mechanism. And this is the lesson that I think is very, very important. I don't waste time worrying about symptoms. I don't waste time worrying about behavior. I look, why is this happening? Let's figure out why. And then let's go back and see if we can fix it. And yes, there's a lot of problems in the world today. And we can sit down and we can complain about all them, I can complain, I can complain so much with you that we feel hopeless, that nothing's gonna get any better. Or we can see, okay, what's the problem? The problem is that our Muslim youth are Muslim, almost uneducated, they're not motivated, they don't feel empowered, they're not united, and no one is training and

00:55:31--> 00:56:06

taking care of them and mentoring them. But if we do that, if we do that we spend a decade or two or three doing that, then the outcome will change. I can't change the reality right now. Because the reality now is the product of the last 4050 years. So I can't go back in history and change that because today, this is the reality, but I can change the next 4050 years. If we work now. If we work now. We put it in, we invest in people, we invest in people we take time to listen, and to educate and to train and to help and to support and to aid and to empower and to let people actually find out who they are what they want to do. Then you'll then the 4050 years to come, you'll see a change

00:56:06--> 00:56:19

in them. The provider you saw that somebody prayed, I want you to remember this now I didn't talk about that then talk about it. Now remember this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for 13 years, stood in front of the camera and prayed and there were 365 idols in front of him when he did.

00:56:21--> 00:56:53

There were 365 idols on the Kaaba in front of it when he prayed, so it took forever here's a story for Waka Rasulullah, for Salah Manuel Kaaba, not the Kaaba that you see. Now No, no, I can't buy that 360 idols in front of it. And he didn't have a problem with that. He knew they were wrong, but this is a symptoms, here's just results of a an ill thought process. We'll change that in shumba We'll get people to see the truth and they'll change and these will just fall on their own and it comes in front of everybody and he points to them and they fall. I mean just I have to I have to end there. The story is not done yet but we have to stop there. We'll stop there. Inshallah we'll

00:56:53--> 00:57:27

continue with the lights and next week we are going to do a a we have a Kahoot Inshallah, so don't leave yet. We're going to have a Ramadan Ramadan Session.
