Haywood hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen
Loma suddenly was suddenly Mubarak I envy you know, Muhammad, you know, either early he was gonna be here Jemaine well, but
what I wanted to try to do this time around a bit more is
talk about the sutras that were revealed during the periods that we will dress meaning when I talk about the certain period of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and the Sahaba lived through, I'll try to point out to you, I'll try to the best of my ability point out to you the this main students that were revealed during that period, just to have an idea of when these tours are revealed and what purposes they served when they were revealed.
I'll also try and talk about some of the main characters as well. So once they come by the story of as a hobby, I'll stop maybe in chat about docile hobby a little bit, so that their story is known, because not all their stories are told throughout this era
comprehensively. So I talked about a number of studios that were revealed during the three years where the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was selectively choosing, choosing Muslims. And we went through a list of men and women,
the pioneers, the people who the Prophet Alia, sought those and, and built the foundation of Islam, on their shoulders. And we talked about a number of these names, and some of the suitors that were revealed early on, and they created an island lane, and a team. And each one came with these very, they're a short students are not long. So it's not something that was difficult to study, they had a very
simple and significant purpose and goal, they were explaining a certain concept, so that the Creator is making sure that the concept of Free Will was properly understood and held in the highest regards, because it is, it is by far the biggest blessing that Allah subhanaw taala has ever bestowed upon upon the human race, we use our ability to choose to have free will, the fact that we are gonna be held accountable for that, so to speak of this be and explain to you what it means. Your opinion of God how you understand Allah subhanaw taala in the light of everything that's happening around you, and like a lot of misfortunes occur, hardships happen all the time. Are you
someone who blames God? Or are you someone who performs to speed and that is has to be a
red line for alyssum this is the line they never crossed, we always performed dispute regardless of what happens. We can begin later once we put that line in, in the ground for ourselves. But we will never blame God for things that we don't like. And then we can start talking about how to deal with them. But that has to be clear first, which is the whole point of this be turn it back on. And then soon. So delayed talks about Taqwa the idea of preventative behavior, of behaving in a way where you're preventing harm for yourself preventing preventing punishment, Jamelia and then finally to the team, which addresses the law of Allah subhanaw taala, the fact that we are created in synchrony
with this line that this law is the law that actually serves us and allows us to be the best people we can be. So I started last time telling you about how the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, just prior to the end of the third year, the number of Muslims that we have within this first year is not he's not well known, we don't know for sure. We'll talk about that later and show so we don't know exactly the numbers he had Alia Santosa. After the third year, some people will say as small as 50, some people go up as much as 200. But it is unclear. And I think the reason for that is because
a lot of these a lot of the networking groups of Dawa was going through the Prophet alayhi salatu salam himself and maybe through a certain number of key Muslims, like Abubakar and Earthman, not everybody knew everybody at the beginning.
I used to stand prior to the end of the third year prior to going public. As you all know, he wanted to turn to his family. So he turned to his family Alia salatu salam and he brought them over for a big feast.
When he had them over, Alia salatu salam for food.
He was waiting for them to come to the end of their meal. And he was preparing to stand up and give a speech and talk to them. He wanted to offer them Dawa. Now of course, he Banu Hashim has a large family. There are many, many, he has many uncles that are you saw two of them, some of them, we you know the names of some of them you don't. And he has a lot of aunts as well. And like Ottawa and Attica, we know Sofia, because he she's the mother of xwayland, she became almost becomes a Muslim later, but some of them we don't know well, because we don't know when they became Muslims how long they lived after. So names aren't known, but he put his family together first Allahu salatu salam
and he began speaking to them first.
Before he was able to stand up and speak and deliver his message and deliver his speech of Buddha who stand up at the end of the room. And he would very rudely say the words that I have up there. You will tell the people his family and I'll talk about that right now. But we don't have the ability to fight off the Arabs. Well, he
told me he shared remember he I liked him. And there is no one who was brought something that is more harmful and detrimental upon his own family than what you are bringing into your family. He's speaking to the profile and so on to listen him as I told you, Islam was known the fact that he
was a prophet or something like that it was something known. It was not something that was held secret he just had, he just hadn't spoken to everyone about it yet. And the policy was as long as it's not harming me, I leave it alone. That's what they were going to do. And he will say, to him or her that listen, optimal huddle, firm, club, the entire idea Komura and he silence him silence this mouth before all of Arabia becomes your enemy. And he's speaking about the prophets of Allah, Allah, Allah CIBJO sound very real in the middle of his house.
So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam politely asked everyone to finish their meals and any whenever they're ready to leave, they're welcome to leave. It didn't speak back to his uncle, we're going to count the number of times a Buddha will confront the Prophet Allah has sought wisdom and the most disrespectful manner possible. And I'm going to show you his reaction out of him every single time. This will leave very little excuses for those of us who don't seem to know how to deal with their elders within their own families.
By the way, he will never change it is taught to someone who is doing he'll never stop doing what he is doing. But the way he responds to his uncle, who the Quran later on, woke up, we're gonna we're gonna see the Sunnah today that was revealed just to address a Buddha. However, the prophit Assad's himself would never say anything, anything rude. He sent everyone home, the first attempt to spread the message amongst his family failed. I'm going to say this word a number of times throughout his sila Alia salatu, salam, I want you to get used to it. I want you to become accustomed with that with that wording. There should be nothing wrong with that in your heart. And in your mind, you
should find no problem, saying that the prophet Isaiah Sacco, some attempted something and it failed. There's no shame in that. There's no shame and you attempting something and failing at it, there's no shame, shame isn't giving up. Shame isn't being knocked down and not getting up again. And trying again, that is where shame lies. But failing is not shameful. Because it's a part of the process of living. There is no one on earth, who has lived their lives with one success after the other. And that's why now they're on top of it. That's why they're now famous. That's why they're now successful, because they just kept on succeeding on their lives, speak to people who are
successful and ask them is that the story of their lives.
If you think that the
diagram of of success goes, goes like this, you're wrong. It goes something like this, the graph just goes down and comes back. And it takes years for it to reach the highest points. Ask people who have gone through life. And that's just the reality of your success. And we'll try these will attempt things they won't work. You'll try again. Sometimes we'll try the same thing. Sometimes you'll try it different differently based on the context based on the thing that he's trying to achieve.
But the point that you will find about him Elisa was me that he'd never give up. And he would state that very clear to anyone who spoke to him, I will never stop doing this, I will never stop teaching this, I will never stop stop trying to spread my message until Allah subhana takes my life or I'm successful, the methods will differ, and sometimes there will be failures. So he tried to get the message, it didn't work out. Didn't do it. So he brought his family over a second time.
This time the Prophet alayhi salatu salam waited until I will have had a strong mouthful, he got up and he began speaking, kind of just jumping the issue, making sure he got the chance to start speaking before I would have got the chance to interrupt him. So this time I just saw him do the same thing just made sure he watched out for that one point I would have wanted to try as much as possible to keep the profit on yourselves on the ability of saying anything. So this here, brothers and sisters is the first record that we have these are the first words we have on record that he said in a public gathering out of your slot was I'm sure he spoke publicly amongst the Sahaba before
but we just don't have it recorded. This one here we have in our record. So he stood up Salalah audio so have you send them and he began Alhamdulillah right. Madhu who is the you know who mean will be here at our gallery la why shadow Allah Allah in the Allahu Allah who will actually Keller
you know, these are the words that usually kill you into fall asleep right now it's the lullaby at the beginning of drama and basically it's just the Imam is telling you please relax your body and, and snooze until I'm done.
Because we turned it into a cliche. When he said these words of never before were had they been heard. No one had ever said them before. So these words actually meant a lot. And people were very drawn to what was going to come next Alhamdulillah all praise due to Allah subhana wa ATOD. Who I praise him was to he knew who I was. And you know, when I asked him for aid, and for help, want me to be here and I fully believe in Him. When I go to Allah He and I fully depend upon him, worshiping Allah Allah in Allah. And I bear witness that there is no Lord but Allah was the one and the only last Chalica he there is no associate with him.
Or each word. Each one of those words was a statement that was being made. That was been
Made being made by the Prophet alayhi salatu salam that challenged the norm of the time.
Each word is something he was challenging the norm the social and intellectual norms of the time that he lived in out of his love to say that full praise and all praise is due to Allah subhanaw taala and only Allah we praise no one else, no one else is praiseworthy, but Allah subhanho wa Taala and he is always praiseworthy, whether you are happy or not, whether you are miserable or not, doesn't make a difference. He's always praiseworthy, and no one is praiseworthy. But him, this is how we live as Muslims, he is stating the way you and I function as Muslims. It's very sad that we still don't think this way.
Who is dying? You know, when you seek aid, when you ask for help along your journey, or you're seeking it from Allah subhanho wa taala. And you fully believe in him? jelajah Lu, it's not an issue of
me, you don't you're not guessing. It's not a probability of a lady 85% This is this is this is faith. This is belief.
This is conviction. This is certainty. What are they gonna depend upon him? I don't depend on anyone else. And a bear witness that there is no one but him and there is no associate with him. I don't associate you no one's equal to God in my heart, or in my mind, no one is equal to God. It's one thing to worship a piece of rock. That's long gone. Maybe some people on the planet still do it. But most most intellectual people don't do that anymore. They don't worship things. But that doesn't mean that association with Allah subhanaw taala doesn't still exist. It just exists in different forms, is just a bit more secretes. It's just a bit more subtle. We don't see it as well. It's not
as clear it's not as open when someone comes and says I believe that this rock can can benefit me and harm me eyes Can God you're like okay, hold on. That's that's the problem. But there are other forms of shift within the mind and the hearts you believe somewhere deep inside you're in the subconscious of your existence, that there's something that someone is is equal I mean a Nancy Walker will talk about this I mean a Nursey maniac talking to me and doing Allah He and dad and some people will take up with Allah subhanaw taala besides him and the mean equals adversary someone was the niche someone who was an equal in their minds you hate bone at home go hug Bella. They love them
as much as they love Allah when Medina no Shut up Bella. However, those who believe love Allah throw away more. They don't, doesn't mean you can't love your loved ones. But nothing nothing should be equal to Allah. So this is the beginning of his of his hope bus of Allah. As I said, I'm speaking
in the raw EDA Allah, Allah. Indeed, Allah it
is someone who cares for someone else, someone who takes care of someone else's. The concept is of caregiver is concept of someone who's putting himself up front to lead it or someone who's bringing information like someone doing that will never lie to his own family.
Well, la hinda de la ilaha illa who in the Rasulullah he alaykum Khalsa, we're in a nursing
I bear witness and I swear by Allah subhanaw taala.
Again, let you know there's no one to be associated with him. Indeed, I am a messenger
from him to us specifically speaking to his family and to all of humanity generally. You know, you come Khalsa, what Elan NASA to all humanity in general but to you specifically because you're my family.
In another narration, he would say something similar to that. He would say Oh ALLAH he looked up to nurse her Jamia and market up to come.
Welcome to nurse Jamia. Anima Hoon to come. If I lie to everybody, I will never lie to you. And if I betrayed everybody on Earth, I would never betray you. You're my family. What I'm telling you right now is the truth comes from a heart that loves you, that cares for you. No matter what I am. You must believe that whatever I would never harm you and I would never come to you with something that was what was improper. It wasn't truthful.
So Allah Allah is like we said wouldn't lie to anybody but he's telling them this think about it. You're my family. I would never do this to you. So the information about to give you as proper as truthful so listen to it.
He was continuing he would say well Allah he will Allah he can let him move tuna camera Tana moon. Well, I took her iPhone camera to stay balloon wallet to her saguna ILM Tama Loon,

you will die. One day you will die.

You will also be resurrected. He's saying you sleep and you wake up every day. Correct. Just like you sleep and wake up every single day. That's how your day begins. The day will come where you will die and you will be resurrected.
In exactly the same way, nothing will change.
When I talk about iPhone COMM At this stage the loon will have to hire several now balloon and you will be held accountable for all that you do.
And you will be held accountable for all that you do. We're in LA Jana to Nevada. Oh no when I buy an indeed it will either be heaven for eternity or punishment for eternity.

This was the first clip but he gave it to us them to his family.
I feel like we jumped or skipped this. This has been in our own lives quite
We seem to have left these this this very simple concept that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam explained.
We have to take care of ourselves. When it comes to this point. When it comes to where you're going, you'll mill piano, you're responsible for that. And you have to find a way to take care of it. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam is telling his family, I don't do this for you. I know you may think well, you are the prophets. So you must. Yeah, and you have a lot of polio, but pm, so use that to benefit us on the Day of Judgment. And he is the first thing he would say to them. The first piece of information he would share with them is that May May I be very clear, I am a private messenger to you specifically into the human race in general. And you're going to be held accountable is going to
be either paradise or punishment.
Save yourselves. I can't help you OMO pm you need to save yourselves. I can help you in dunya. But I can't save you your multicam.
And somehow, 1400 years later,
we walk around and saying that the Prophet Alia Sato, Sam will save us all your milk Yama. So please do what you want. Enjoy life as however you want to enjoy it. You don't need to do much. Just pray your five pairs, you're going to be fine. You'll multicam because he will save you.
How could that be? With the first words he was he? He shared with his own family? It was the opposite of that. Some Allah Allah, Allah. Yes, we believe that you want to see the opium. Of course we believe that
but he won't intercedes upon us on the audio side Muslim except for people that Allah subhanaw taala allows him to intercede on behalf of
meaning in order for you get the possession of the
Prophet alayhi salatu salam, Allah subhanaw taala has to say you have Mohammed intercede upon on the behalf of this person here. The Prophet alayhi salam is and will not come in and just eat up on the behalf of someone that Allah Subhan Allah says, No, he won't do it. So Allah He said, We said it because that's not that's not how it works, or else what he's saying here, he must have changed this later. But he didn't. He didn't retract any of this. He didn't gather his family again and say no, by the way, I was wrong at the beginning. You're good.
You're all good. No, you never did.
But it's just easier to believe what I just told you, isn't it?
Our belief seems to be easier. It's much more comforting. When I tell you, you're gonna be fine. Everything's be fine. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam, when I sold for y'all teak or a book of Allah, He will go in Allah Subhana Allah will give him until he is satisfied, and he won't be satisfied until all of our agenda so you can do what you want. It's easier that way, it's much more comforting, less responsibility, less stress upon me and you have to work that hard anymore, because someone's gonna be taking care of things for us. This is a fundamental problem, a fundamental problem and understanding the basics of what it means to be Muslim, or what Islam is about a
fundamental problem, this is not something that is aside any secondary tertiary topic, that I can easily go throw throat Yeah, and he had never talked about this, you had to talk about this. Because these types of beliefs, the only effect they have upon you is to is to make is to make me into to make all of us lazy, the only effect they have upon us is to make us less.
Less willing to work hard, less willing to put in the effort within our lives of being better of reaching our full potential and, and spending our lives serving Allah subhanaw taala we're less likely to do it. When you're told you don't have to, you're gonna be fine. Someone will intercede for you.
And there are many, many beliefs similar to this one that I shared with you that had the same effect on the Muslim minor and the human mind in general. So they gave this whole body of Salatu was Salam.
So then he asked the question,
I want you to imagine the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam at the head of the table with all of his relatives sitting eating
I want you to imagine Hamza sitting there. And Ibis sitting there. And his uncle Hadith. I want you to imagine Sofia and her children in Ottawa and it kind of puts all their children are there with them. And Abu Lahab is there and Abu Bakr Lebanese, they're all their children are there or it's been ote been after Elan, Jaffa, all these, everyone's there and they're eating.
And the professionalism is give me this hope when everyone's silent. Because what he's saying Alia salatu. Salam is they've never heard before. They knew he was a prophet. And he was he was talking about Islam, and what's something new, but he had never been addressed
directly with any of this rhetoric before. And he's saying these words to them, he's being very clearly a soldier, a few words very clear that meaning. So he stands and he says, For Men Men come, your men will be magic to be with Debbie or only Allah and I hear. So how would you who of whom have you will believe in what I have just explained, and will follow me based on what I've just explained? Who will follow me in this, who will believe in me? And I want him to imagine everyone puts their head down.
And a lecture or in any classroom when the teacher says or the speaker says, Anyone have a question? Or who can answer this. No one's really, generally speaking, we don't want to really participate. We're just here to listen, and we don't want to participate that much. So everyone looks down. If you're in a classroom, you remember, you would act like you are preoccupied with something. I used to be very good at making sure the angle that there was always a head between me and the I set up my teacher. And he would move and I would move with it. So he would never actually make any eye contact with me ever be very difficult. I was very good at that. I was very strategic. Never wanted to
answer a question, never want to put my hand up for anything. So I don't blame you. But the problem is not the same as asking a question of
a very high caliber, this is going to have extreme effect on how Islam is going to move forward in the next 13 years or 20 years. And he's asking who will follow me he's looking for, for support from his own family Alia, slow to Islam, understand how hard it is to go through life with your family not supporting you. It's very difficult.
Those of you who I knew who were succeeding or trying to be successful, and don't have their families behind them, there's always going to be something that hurts, it's always gonna be a bit more difficult.
That's why I advise if you're a family member, support your family members, support your siblings and your parents and your children support them with what they do. You don't have to fully believe in it all.
You don't have to necessarily be fully
sold as long as what they're doing is nothing that's Haram as long as it's something they believe in and they can see the light in and support them because it hurts when your own blood won't support you. Or you start to stand with ask the question and I want you to imagine that Hamza you know this name Hamza bin Abdul Muttalib. I said Allah
He was truly he. Later we will speak of his of his courage and his bravery will cry the day he passes away, or the Allahu Anhu. That day he kept his head down. He said nothing that day.
He didn't say Hamza didn't say anything. didn't respond to him. It all started just look down continue to eat.
Abbas wouldn't respond that day. Sophia wouldn't respond that day. No one responded that day.
Don't judge people by the way, on the other hand of this
Hamza didn't answer that thing. Hamza would later become one of the names that we define. Islam by Hamza is no longer a name. It's an adjective. You can you can you can describe someone say he's a Hamza and you know, and people know exactly what you mean, when you say that. correctly. He he later on became an icon within our own Deen. But that day, he kept his head down. He didn't say anything.
If you would judge him based on what he did that day, how far off would you have been? If you judge Hamza, based on that day? Very mistaken. Oh, you'd be so mistaken. You'd be so surprised to know what later became of this man. Now this person. You judge Sophia that day who didn't put her head up either? How mistaken would you have been? To find out what she did later, personally and through her own family, only Allah Allah.
Very few women were able to achieve what she achieved. She fought by the prophet Allah so literally carried a sword.
Now a lot of women's carried swords they fought but not like that. She did it all or all the Allahu anha.
If you judge her based on that day, USA, this is a person who's far away from Allah, their heart have is hardened. These are people never judge people based on. You see, everyone has their own journey. Let people on their journey, I deal with us a lot. And that's the only lesson I walked away with for years. I don't
I do my job I do. My part. Doesn't matter to me, that you can like me, they can hate me, they can listen to me, they can give me a hard time not a problem. It's not my job to change them. It's not my job to enforce anything upon them. It's my job to serve them. Let them live their journey, and they will make their choices.
If you can live like that. It's hard to live like that, especially with your family because you will so you so desperately want to control so they do what you want. But if you can do that, the outcome is much better. It's much more difficult, but the outcome is much better. You just do your best. And the Prophet audience says I'm wasn't hateful after that. She he asked whether his family support openly. They said no, he wasn't hateful, or he sought to asylum. He didn't walk away saying my family is this and my family is that by the way, I hear that a lot. Never say that. Even if it's true.
It even if somehow you have this horrible luck of being a part of a family that doesn't really function horrible. Do not say that. Because you're not doing anything but bringing yourself down. You're only harming yourself. That's your family. Why would you say that? Never say that. I think it's not to say never never shared anything like that. Never. He continued to perform Dawa to the best of his ability, if some of them later accepted Islam. And some of them became the great names that we have. But to be honest.
One person did.
So I'm not lying. One person said I'll stand by you your Rasulullah is this very awkward silence continued for a couple of seconds when he asked the question. I only saw two of them who will be with Me in awkward silence in the room. Only broken a couple of seconds later.
By a small hand coming up at the end. It's too short to be it. People are sitting you can't see him just a small hand going up with that, you know, high pitched child like voice
10 years old, or young boys put his hand up. But I could go to school Allah. I'll do it.
I believe in you. 10 years old. So what do people do? They laugh. It gets funny.
It was funny.
The room is filled with people of great caliber and great status.
Well, I'm not talking about financial whether social wealth, intellectual wealth. They're sitting there at the table. All of them older than him. It is so most of them older than him or his cousins are they're all just second cousins are there. No one's willing to stand by him on a soft twisted on a 10 year old boy puts his hand up at the end. I know Monica gotta Sula. His mother is probably telling him to be quiet.
Be quiet. You're embarrassing us.
How many times have I told you not to speak when people aren't?
There's a difference between a dog by the way. And yeah, I need
and asking children just to be quiet. There's not the same thing. Johnny Depp is one thing I love is the child's ability to express themselves in a way that is respectful to those around them. That's what Adam is not the requirement of a child to sit down quietly when others are talking. That's not what Adobe is. He never He never encouraged that out of your software center. You'll see this in his lifetime.
Your time, he never encouraged it. And he never expected it. And he would actually sometimes push the child to say something in the sitting in the setting that was was there and within with it within the group to get them to participate, I dub is the ability to do that in a respectful way. And that doesn't happen by asking them repeated repeatedly, repeatedly to be quiet. Now, that's not going to happen that we want him to learn to speak amongst people, they have to speak. And when they make mistakes, they need to be corrected, and they have to be given the chance to do it again, and then do it again until they can do it properly until they can present themselves. There's difference
between me but I don't like the fact that many of our youth are socially, yeah, and even nervous. Like they're socially anxious and they lack confidence. And they don't know how to present themselves in a group or a gathering. And if you require them to come in and give them to people or sitting around, they don't know how to do it. And they're shy and the shyness is not what we're looking for respect is what we're looking for. You respect know how to speak know what to say and when to say it. That is in Syria that there's an Arabic there's a saying that the enemy Majelis Kabul element murders, the knowledge of, of social gatherings of knowing how to present one selves
and speak to others become way more important than what you learn at school.
The knowledge you know, knowing how to
do algebra and math and whatever. No, this is more important. So I needed to know how to put his hand up and said no Monica yellow Sula. So I need to start to
look at is is a reaction to a 10 year old boy or he may be he's told at this point in time I Lee you're with me the color now I'm Mark, I'm with you. I believe in everything you say and I was calling you Takada Thai Lady, come here, buy your coffee, put your hand in mind.
So as he walked up, and he put his hand in the hand of the Prophet, so I said to him, and he shook on it,
call it an intimate and you're with me, from now on, you're stuck with me. And he did. Allahu Anhu. He stuck with the prophets of Allah, Allah prior to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam beginning the public data, because you're going to see I end up within a few days or weeks of this, and he's going to go public with Islam and things are going to change everything changes the day, he does that ally yourself and be prior to that things are fine. Because for issues and the people in the nobles of Mecca like well, he's not harming us, he's not making this a public matter. Whatever he does behind closed doors and with people, people who want to do it, that's fine.
But if you're gonna go public with it, it's gonna be a problem. So prior to that Allah Subhanallah revealed a few sutras I want to talk about one of them reveals some palletizer.
In addition to these foundational sutras that were being given to the Prophet, audio Salatu was to them, you can see, do you see how important it is to amaze so far,
out of all the students you talked about, maybe two or three of them are not within Usamah, maybe maybe just a few at the beginning.
Barack, let's call him Muslim, everything else is just the AMA. For the first three or four years. That's all that was revealed.
That's why we asked children to memorize it first. That's why everyone here knows these soon as well. The only problem is we just know the words. We can just say the words out loud, but we don't understand what the meaning is. We don't contemplate them even reflect upon it. We don't act based on it. So to visualize it as a very simple message in it right in that in the middle over there. I have 15 and 16 I'm not going to go through the whole thing just to give you the
the message within it for Amal Insano either maybe Taylor who Raghu Rama who went to AMA who for your call or rugby acraman will either another teller who *a Ali here is a who for your call or a BIA Hernan kala kalah. So the human being when Allah subhanaw taala when his Lord treats him well
gives him wealth.
He'll walk around and say, My Lord loves me. I left out a word I know I did your thinking, where's the word of today? He didn't say I know. Well, I'm married. I'm up till
now however they will be going in being is not treated the way he wants. His power. Now he doesn't have as much as well, doesn't have as much wealth as he would like to have. He's living in life where it's all difficult to where it's hard, where you can barely make ends meet at the each month for your co neurobion. And you say My Lord must not love me. My Lord is humiliating me made me feel bad color. And the answer that is no, that's that's untrue. That's incorrect. But there's a word that I left out in translation that is repeated twice in both verses. Either my patella who both either my patella whom I've trialed him, or tested him or her, put them to the test put them through
a trial. In both verses. He says when Allah says when the human being is tested, and his Lord gives him wealth, he will say, Lord, My Lord must love me. When the human being is tested and he doesn't have a lot of wealth. He'll go and say My Lord must want to humiliate me No. See, the thing in common is the test is the trial that's all it is. Because I think personal about it. He doesn't love you if he
by giving you more money and hates you by giving you less doesn't love you if you're hell
theone hates you, if you're a sick you love you if you're a strong and hate you if you're a weak, these are horrible misinterpretations of life itself. These are horrible misinterpretations of life itself.
If you don't understand this, now, make sure your children do
it is of extreme importance that our children understand this. Because life is guaranteed. Life is guaranteed to throw you curveballs, life is guaranteed to make sure you fall number a number of times, you are going to fail a number of times, things aren't going to work out for you the way you want. Many, many times. I know none of us like that. I know none of us want that. But that is the reality of life itself. That's how he designed it. Subhana wa, tada. You just don't live in duniya as if you're living in Jannah. Please don't do that. Don't act as if duniya is Jana, and try to function in dunya. If you're already in Jana, you don't need to prepare for Jana, I know you're
maybe trying to do a bit of a prep for Jenna don't don't do that, you'll be fine, you'll know exactly how to prepare how to behave and gender once you get there.
Because life won't allow you to do that. And life is not designed that way.
And I see people all the time,
coming asking about or talking about their future talking about their ambitions. And as they talk to me about their ambitions, I remind them and say, Well, you know what, always have a plan B, and C and D. And make sure Yanni in your mind, you're okay, if you work hard towards this goal and doesn't work out and make sure you're prepared to try again and again. And they'll just brush me off and say no to show I'll get it, I'll get it done. I've heard everything forget, like anybody listen to me. Nobody listened to me, you're going to yawn, just make sure that you are mentally and psychologically prepared for the possibility of this not working out. And they'll brush that away.
And I can see that yeah, miskeen poor, you're poor. So you're going to this is not You're not going to be happy at the end of this. This is not going to work out nicely for because you don't seem to understand how life works.
And it's and it's hard to watch them fall, and then come in broken. Because they didn't understand the simple concepts of social, social, nothing personal, but it's a part of like you're being tested. Sometimes you're tested with more, and sometimes you're tested with less. Either way, all of this is a test. It's nothing else. If nothing else is not an indication or an indicator that Allah subhanaw taala likes you more or less. You can see this thing happened to me as punishment, he must have punished me Subhanallah No, no, no. It's only punishment, if you lose your faith because of it. It's only punishment if you start doing things that are haram because of it. But it's no matter what
10 You're Dealt, no matter how horrible the hand is, if you take it, and you show perseverance and you show gratitude, and you continue to do the best you can do with it with complete satisfaction with your Lord subhanho wa taala, then it's nothing but a blessing. And you will see it as a blessing your multicam if you can see it now, obviously you can't tell someone who's sick. That's a blessing that never say that. That's very rude. It's very hurtful to the person. But what we're saying is as as the person who was enduring this difficulty, understand that if you deal with it properly, you'll mill piano you will look at it back. I didn't say it handy when that happened.
Because all of that I said not to have the Sahaba would say that. And Mr. odunlade later on saying this is by Dr. Lena, a Yamuna V the summary for Savarna. On the days during the days of the Prophet we were tested with difficulty, we are persecuted gonna see in the next couple of Halaqaat all persecution. Because Qureshi is going to change his face. We were persecuted, we were poor, we were scared. And we stood our ground. We were perseverance.
Some of Julian bida who
Bill data from OSHA. Gov. And then we were tested after he left la so to sum with, with a lot, because they became wealthy and they became powerful. And they became famous and infamous. Let me say his name today. We speak of him Joe this day. He said from Russia Corona, and we didn't do very good with gratitude. And of course, I've been much older speaking out of humility and humbleness.
They looked back at his days, a lot of the older people here today look back at the difficult days and a different eye and a different perspective than they saw it when they were going through it. Ask an older person about the days where they had to get up whatever your parents probably woke up every day for school at five o'clock, went to school with no with no shoes was uphill both ways. And it was always just almost horrific story ever. And you're asking about those days and then they'll speak positively of those days. They'll speak positive even though at the time they probably hated it. Just like you're going through some difficulties right now you don't like it but later you'll
speak of it differently. Understand so to Fraser Ross life will be very very hard.
We're not doing well are preparing our own youth with the simple tools that that Allah Subhan that put in the toolkit. Here's the Quran just know these basic stuff so you can function and we wait until they're 30 until they get their first slap over the face not physically but by
But by life itself figuratively, life, it's a very difficult teacher. Life is not merciful. Teach is hard, it's difficult understanding that this is just a part of the trust and the trial.
So a man who would say
this when I was given is Allah subhanaw taala. Just just to test me to see, am I going to be grateful? Or am I going to be someone who was ungrateful? That's all. That's why I'm getting this. The Quran is filled with the same terminology, we will give you this to see, are you going to be truthful? Are you going to be a liar? Are you going to be someone who stands their ground or someone who runs away a hole and is filled with terminology, it's just here. Let's see what you'll do.
Again, just understanding the variables of life understanding of properly, this is what the Sahaba were being exposed to early on with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.
So the third year arrived, and just the beginning of the third year, so 200 was revealed. So there is a long one, I'm not going to explain to you in detail, the meaning of it, but at the end of it
came first. The man took mob what
machete King first there, took more. The prophets Elijah apparently had in his mind, he was going to continue to build Islam selectively for for a bit more, for a bit more time or a few more years. This was one of the few times where the Quran would come and tell the Prophet Alia, Sacco Sudan to modify his plan a little bit. So he can the Quran was revealed and told the prophet as I'm very clearly first that first diamond go public, speak openly, you might tell me that you have been commanded the Quran
by kneeling Mushrikeen and continue to do what you've been doing with them or should have been by no conflict, no confrontation, no violence. We talked about that at the beginning of this Halaqaat what are the ground rules? The first 13 years of Dawa no conflict, no physical violence, we're not going to fight back.
So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam had to prepare to speak and address all of Mecca. And hopefully all of the tribes that lived around one of the most courageous and brave things like I imagined him doing it a substratum when I think about him, is that thing, we just talked about it quickly move on. So he stood and he said, No, no, no, no, listen, he had to stand. You have to call people. People who knew what he was talking about for the last couple of years. They know about it. It's in the periphery. They have knowledge, they know that the Prophet Muhammad is claiming prophecy. He's teaching Quran and he's talking about he has his own thing people have chosen not to being
interested not to be involved. And now he's going to have to stand and speak to people who don't want to listen to him, who have made it clear that they don't want to listen to him, he has to address them openly. Public speaking is difficult. Public speaking, when you're not invited is more difficult. Public speaking to people who don't want to listen to you even more difficult, public speaking that can cause you physical harm is the worst. And he's going to do all three audience so it was to them.
I can only imagine him thinking okay, how do I what do I how do I do this? How do I address all of muck? So we thought of the most famous place in Macau. One of the most famous places in Mecca. I think I have a few pictures here and there. If you've done an ombre before, or you've done Hajj as you walk between a sofa, well Marwah,
which is the two mountains, that hurdle I would go between back in the day
that most of us have a suffer. It's a very, very known mountain in Mecca. Now before of course, the current setting of how the of the Haram actually works. It was a landmark within within Mecca. And a lot of a lot of great things happen there, meaning a lot of great treaties were signed there. A lot of famous poets stood there. This was the you know, the BMO of Mecca. This is where people went, this is where you if you wanted to be in large gatherings, or if something was going to happen, they would they would go to Safa stuff, it was a known place was posted the camera, it was high enough for people to able to hear and see. So the prophet Ali Asad was there and decided that he was gonna
stand on that mountain over there. Whenever you do, Amara, I want you to stand there
before it because before you start saying you can stand it for a moment, it's actually as soon as to stand on suffer and make dua before you start your site. So stand there, make a bit of draw and then imagine, imagine the profit out of your site was I'm standing there. This is not the place it was never moved from one place to this is exactly where he stood to address the people of Macau.
The bravery that was involved in him doing this earliest thought was of the standard speak. And to me is I don't understand how he did it. Public speaking is what is one of the is the number one phobia correct and the world and he thinks human races more scared of his public speaking in the context that he did it. During that specific time. I'll use AutoSum it's probably the scariest thing I can imagine. You're gonna see it's not gonna work out very well. It's not gonna work out very well. It's not like you're gonna stand there and say this and then suddenly all of MCCA
Allahu Akbar Allah Yes, we accept you and then the Sierra would be a completely different story than I would have a completely different story to tell you and everything would be different. There would be no Medina would always be nothing. But obviously things didn't work out very well. But that's where he stood Allah Who Salatu was Salam. This is what he said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on on the Mount of Safa, Alia, so to summon the third at the end of the third year beginning of the fourth year of his prophecy, so Allah Hi, as I was saying them in response to those verses, that the verse that I explained to you that I showed you a moment ago, he will stand Ali and salatu salam.
I mean, I best said when Allah subhanaw taala said, will endure it article Robbyn.
And the verse that I talked to you was revealed, he's still slicing them Asafa Alito. Manasa sabaha. So this was a way for Arabs to in the back in the day if you wanted people to gather you would do this. You will stand and he will say we also about how who? Something like that. And you just stand there and continuously say that. Yeah.
Yeah, so about Hi, Mimi. Good morning, everybody. But you have a good morning, everybody. It will continue to say that but hit them about the Polish Allah.
Rasool Allah until everyone in Makkah either came or sent someone on their behalf to listen, and everybody did. So you could tell because it's hard to get people together here. And it's not easy to get everyone to respond. People are busy, but you could tell people have some anticipation. But the Prophet Muhammad was at some point was going to address everybody, because he had just addressed his family. People speak. You know, the word of mouth gets around. They knew that he had gathered his family and done something like this. So they were expecting he was probably gonna do this at some point. So he stands jasa, and just keeps on saying that until people come. What do you think he's
going to talk about people who don't know exactly what's going to talk about? But they didn't think it was gonna happen? Or maybe they were hoping it wasn't going to happen? They were hoping he kept it low key. He didn't stand up and make this a public issue. Yes, about how he kept on saying that until everyone came.
But his demo. So today he biologically NeoGeo or Banjara, during your bathroom or sooner when people came out of the kingdom, Silva sent a messenger on their behalf, thought God Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he started to call upon the tribes of Mecca. Yeah, Benny Abdul Muttalib. Yeah, Benny.
Yeah, Benny. Now if you if you were here at the first couple of Halaqaat. For this run time around, I went through the genealogy and I spent a bit of time and some people got bored. But if you remember, I went through some of the names and the end filter and lo a. These are names of some of the ancestors of all the tribes of Mecca. So maybe but yeah, maybe maybe the prophet has got his family, but it will hurt him. You can't go to Hashem that's only one family. But there's other families that aren't the sons of Hashem. They're from a different Jani part. So if he says, Yeah, been up, he'd been killed. We only get a certain mountain part of Mecca. Listen to him. So he said
the ebony for her. Yeah, Benito. He went up the ancestry. He went up to the point where everyone in Makkah, were the sons of that name. Everyone in America were the sons of fear. The sons of Louis all of them were so he's calling upon all of them. Yeah, but he didn't have a Bolivia but he Vitor Yeah, Bernie, you know, eight, or eight or eight. I'm about to come and hide and be safe he had eligible to read interferon AECOM, according to Musa DP, or Assad. Dr. Mooney.
This is how he begins his speech. So if I told you that right behind this mountain, if you go to suffer, you'll see it's not a very big mountain. It's a hill. It's not really a mountain. It's more of a hill said if I told you that behind this mountain that I'm standing upon. And in some narrations, he was pointing to another mountain, a bigger one. Either way it would work. If I told you that, right behind this mountain is an army cavalry preparing to charge you would you have believed? Would you believe me? I couldn't do Musa de pollo Nam, Maharaja Robina alayka. Kennedy Bancorp. They said, Yes. We have never known you to lie ever before. You're not a liar. This was
just an it's a rhetorical question. It's more of a figure of speech. He's asking them Do you know me to be a liar? Have I ever come to any of you in your lives and lied to you and say he said something that wasn't true, was not truthful. He's asking for their public testimony. And he was so known for being honest to yourself to assume that they had no choice but to say yes, he would believe you because you've never lied before. Is something he was famous for. Imagine being famous for being honest. Being known for being honest. That's I can't that's very difficult to be known for being honest. Hard who Nam phagon for any Nithya will lickin Bay in a day either been studied. So indeed.
I'm a warrior amongst you. For a severe punishment that is to come I'm warning you that something severe is dignity or the word in a v it means I am here to warn. I must warn you that if you do not change
Your ways that if you're not fix your lives, that if your concepts don't improve,
then punishment is honestly, whether the punishment is in Dunia or you're welcome. It doesn't make a difference. He's talking about a complete social change. People are listening. And then if someone speaks up
we'll end with this inshallah.
Everyone's quiet everyone's listening.
And he's continuing is always going to continue speaking about what this concept is he wants to talk about in the law wants to talk about Islam, but someone yells out, traditionally, in Arabia, that was something that no one did. He never did that. If there was a public gathering and someone was speaking, if you need one to speak, you have to ask for permission or wait for the person was fully finished. But this person here, it broke the norm. There's something rude and disrespectful, not just to the person who was speaking but to everyone who is sitting there, Ebola hub again. So Strike two.
He stands up again, and he blurts something out right in the midst of this huge gathering. He's standing there as a jumble of stuff. It is so twisted, I'm speaking to people who don't listen to him.
I remember the first time I ever did the drama. I was in the first year of universities to do a drummer. So we were in a military camp and university where you're not really allowed to do drum eyes or anything like that. But we there was enough people wanted to do it. So my friend, he's a physician down in Detroit, he, he told me how he came up with a plan and didn't tell me about it. And he told me, let's go Frasier. Everyone seems to be going this direction. So yes, let's go. So we're walking, we're chatting. Once we get there, there's a small little gathering a little place where it seems that the email will be standing. So he once they get there, he shoves me up front,
and he stands and it makes it done. So now I'm standing there in front of maybe 6200 can remember the number anymore. And probably there probably more than that, remember, because it was was very bright that day, and I'm standing there and he's making a ton of color. So I'm gonna get the hook back. So I'm saying that I have nothing prepared at all. So I come up with something quickly. I remember nothing. By the way, what I said that day, no recollection whatsoever, even if anything, not even the simplest thing. But I was so nervous that my right foot was, was pounding the ground just like a rabbit. It was just hitting the ground, it was making noise, who is making something
good to hear it was actually very obvious. So it was so obvious that I looked there was a pillar, so I kind of put a kind of lean lens onto the pillar, so my foot wouldn't hit the ground anymore. It was still shivering, but I wasn't making noise at least. So I gave the hook out of 45 degrees.
That was my first football. So whatever you think of the profit on a slot or some standing there on the on Jabra suffer speaking to these people, who, who obviously don't want to listen to him, and it's something that he cannot be prepared for. And there's really nothing more he can do than just stand there and bravely speak. And then someone stands up the worst nightmare of a public speaker is to get heckled is for someone to stand up and start to heckle him. You can't you can't do nothing you can do. No matter how you respond, you're going to ruin what you're doing is gonna look horrible. So the profit is only gonna get heckled at that first time and someone's gonna stand up
and say something, and who's going to be his own blood.
It's going to be His own uncle. It hurts so bad. When when the first on a stab in the back comes from a family member. It hurts. It really does. So okay, if it's happened to you, it's okay to grieve. It's okay to hurt. And it does mean that first.
failure comes from someone that should love you. Someone is someone who should support you. I would have stood up in a file tab, but like I said earlier, O'Malley Hi, Joe Montana. Not only the heckle him, he
used profanity. He used profanity. The word bollock in Arabic is actually a very rude word. I can say it in this message because most people don't speak Arabic. So don't know what it means doesn't matter. But actually, the word back in the day was a very bad word. You're saying some you're using obscene at hearing profanity. So not only is he heckling? The Prophet Allah So Sam is going to he's going to curse him out he's gonna say a rude word to his face. And this is why you got to does this and this about you? Or this industry? You This is why you This is why you will gathered us, You made us leave our work to come and listen to this.
Listen to whatever it is that you're saying. He's mocking he's, he's ridiculing the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, again, Allah has a lot to say I would not respond.
He will get down the mountain and walk he did it. So he his message.
He would have wanted his message to go by a bit better. But he's not going to stand there. He's not going to begin the public interest of Islam with him fighting with his uncle. No, no, he's not going to have the public entrance of Islam to Arabia by Mohammed Salim fighting with with his uncle, even if he did, you probably wouldn't have had a problem with it. I told you the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said enough is nothing went down there and yeah, and he taught a lesson you will be happy with no, I start to Islam did not respond at all. But Allah did.
But Allah subhanho wa Taala definitely did. The prophets like Sam said nothing to will have me give you examples. It's still
I'm about to come he's still gonna do a few more things this is how Allah subhanaw taala responded
the sooner that you all know that but yeah the abelia have been better I will explain what the purpose of the surah is in sha Allah next next week with Allah to Allah
