hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala you know, Habib, you know Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi. Germain Well, bad.

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

Alright, so today I will, I will conclude the portion of

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

the persecution of the prophets of Allah Hadees. Like we said them and I'll start talking about some things that the Sahaba had to undergo.

00:00:38--> 00:01:12

Keep in mind that I leave out a lot, that what I leave out is three to four fold of what I'm actually telling you. And I've done it like that. And I'll continue to do it like that. Now, because I don't think these stories aren't worth sharing, because they're difficult to share. A lot of these stories are very harsh, and very hard to you know, to tell because of what actually happened to the prophets of Allah, Allah you it was it was seldom what actually happened double Sahaba they were difficult days, there's going to be a point of this at the end, meaning I will, I will bring up the point of why these stories are important for us to at least acknowledge and no, I don't think I can

00:01:12--> 00:01:31

tell you all the brutality, but you should be aware of the degree of the brutality, you should be aware of the degree of persecution and oppression that that that our ancestors that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and the Sahaba had to undergo in order for Islam to actually reach you and I in the form that it that it did.

00:01:33--> 00:02:08

Interestingly enough, as you will see, as we go through this era, that they were persecuted by the people who later on became Muslim, which is in itself, a lesson that we will talk about at some length. Well, in some detail, the reason being that a lot of the time you'll be you'll be harmed, and you'll be oppressed by those who later all will be on your team late in the future. Never lose hope and people never stopped believing in people, the moment we stopped believing in people, and the decency of people and communities and the strength of communities. And the fact that the communities will come around, they will see the light the moment we stopped doing that we turn into

00:02:08--> 00:02:49

dictators, we turn into control freaks, forgive me for this phrase. So we turned into the Prophet Allah to send the people who harmed him the most. Their children became the ambassadors of Islam. And from there, when we talk about corruption, I tell you courage this place did that in the heart of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam who embraced Islam at the end. Who is this Yanni, which which tribe is Islam, known to be a part of the most, which tribe represent us now, at the moment, just flesh is the same tribe, those who fight you at the beginning, you know, quite often come come around at some point in the future, you just can't lose hope and people, because as you listen to

00:02:49--> 00:03:17

these stories that I'll tell you about the profit and loss that we have to go through. You may think, at some point, he would lose it. And he would say, because it's not going to end in today's Holika. He will continue to feel pressed for the next 20 years of the Sierra easy. You'll only be maybe a little a couple of months before he passes away. I'd love to send that it'll be free from that level of oppression. But you never lose hope you never lost hope I use AutoSum you never stopped believing in the decency and the goodness and the height of that existed in people.

00:03:18--> 00:03:46

And that is a lesson that we must carry with ourselves. Never lose hope, especially in family because the Prophet alayhi salatu salam who was speaking to in Mecca, for he has his family is his larger tribe. He's speaking to family. He never lost hope and family never lose hope and family. No matter how difficult they make it for you just continue to do this. Be like hey Malika salatu salam, I'm going to tell you a story today that I think is really important I left it I give it its own little slot in the CLI because I think it's important to to share with you

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

Bucha hell, an alphabet even

00:03:52--> 00:04:06

some Serbian my doesn't make a difference. These two people were very close friends. By far those two names are the two names that harmed the Prophet alayhi salaatu Seminole Sahaba during the Mechi period, the most

00:04:07--> 00:04:21

common Hisham Kazumi and aqua, these two people by far physically and financially and socially harmed the profit audience thought some of the most, and they are best buddies. They're they're very close. They're very close.

00:04:23--> 00:04:25

At some point during the profit

00:04:26--> 00:04:49

from the third to sixth year at some point, he spoke to me right now you saw it, because he's going to the nobles of Qureshi speaking to all the you know, the bosses, all the big people, all the intelligent all the intellectuals, all the leaders, so he spoke to all of them and Akbar was one of them. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, you know, began explaining Islam in Iraq but did not want to hear it, at least for the first three or four attempts.

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

But by the fifth or sixth time, look by started to come around a little bit. He started to listen a bit more attentively to the profile you saw to us.

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

sallam. He started asking questions. I like to talk to them, so to speak to him on his own. They were having one on one sessions where he spoke at length to him that the dean, and then

00:05:11--> 00:05:23

you could see on his face that he was slowly changing. You had an accepting Islam, but you can see there's something changing in him. The way he's talked about the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, how he greeted him how he sat with him, things were changing for aucuba.

00:05:25--> 00:05:45

To the point where the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam in some narrations was telling the Sahaba that prepare very soon, you're going to hear great news. Why? Because it looked like Akbar was going to accept Islam. It was just a matter of time. So the Prophet as I was saying, was building up to this point where it was finally gonna accept Islam. He's one of the big leaders, one of the nobles of Quran

00:05:48--> 00:06:10

Bucha Han, his best friend had been traveling for the last three months, as you know, they're all businessman, and he would travel. I knew that she felt was safe, either to the north to the south, to sell their merchandise and come back, and it just happened to be the time where Abuja hell, I will have you ever been he was on his travel on his car with his caravans. And during that period, the prophet Alia so let me speak into

00:06:12--> 00:06:19

how Abuja comes back. This is just around the same timing. Here's what happened. I don't know why, I think maybe two hours for me to tell this story.

00:06:20--> 00:06:24

He comes back before he gets to his house, people come up to him

00:06:25--> 00:06:56

and say you're not you're not going home. You can enter your home until you until you listen to us and you have to do something. And he's explained to them well, I just I've been traveling for months. Let me go home. Let me have a shower. Let me change my clothing that listen to you. They said no. This is this is the urgency of the matter we want to talk to you about is the level that you can't go home you have to listen to this now. So what's the problem? For Karla saba haibach Your friend is leaving your faith your religion he's following it Tada Mohammed, he's following Muhammad

00:07:00--> 00:07:06

so I would Yeah, he would go immediately to the office. house immediately.

00:07:07--> 00:07:10

He would knock on his door. So I would have opened the door

00:07:12--> 00:07:30

and he will say oh Helen be heavy or heavy. Welcome to my friend and I haven't seen in months please come in a Carla wedge him and what Chica haram while he said he mainly SANIKA haram I will never speak to you again. I will never look you in the face. hat that doesn't have a What Up Soca theology Mohammed. So you go and you spit Muhammad's face.

00:07:32--> 00:07:33

So when he told him, he walks away

00:07:35--> 00:07:38

and he leaves him. Just so you understand what he had to go through some Allah Allah.

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

So Allah Allah Muhammad said, Allah, Allah us.

00:07:44--> 00:07:49

So I told him, I will speak to you again. You're not my friend. I don't know you. So you go do this. Now.

00:07:50--> 00:07:54

He left. So I was now stuck with this dilemma.

00:07:55--> 00:07:57

He stuck with a dilemma. What does he do?

00:07:59--> 00:08:03

Whenever you tell your kid that you want to move from one school to the other, right?

00:08:04--> 00:08:34

It's a horror, it's a huge fight. Or if you're telling if you tell your child we're going to move to different city. So nightmare if your parents a nightmare. Why because you don't lose your friends. Having friends is very important. You choose where you're going to live, you choose your residence, you choose based on the on your social, on the social acquaintances that you have around you, that will allow you to feel at home, you need friends, you need people around you to function. It's impossible. I still remember I'm not that old. yet. I remember what it felt like I used to try to plan my life as a child to be around my friends somehow.

00:08:35--> 00:08:37

And you'll all do that. As kids, it's fine.

00:08:38--> 00:09:08

Just as a piece of information, you're gonna fail completely. It's not going to work at all, you're gonna lose all your friends, you're gonna make new friends. This is how life works. And the friends you had long time we're gonna get lost, we'll come back around. That's how life is. But you will try. You'll try and plan your life around keeping your friends, you've been telling your friend Yeah, I'll get a job in this place. That place will live in these places will be close together. It never works out. But that's how we function. Because we want our friends around. It's normal. That's a natural human desire. It's nothing wrong with that at all. It's just you have to learn how to

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

weigh things out because the story is a scary story. scary one.

00:09:15--> 00:09:20

So I hope by now sitting at home with this dilemma of what does he lose his best friend?

00:09:22--> 00:09:26

Or does he stick to what he is now seeing to be the truth?

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

You want to talk about peer pressure? This is the ultimate example of peer pressure. Because what you're being peered when you're being pressured by your peers to do is to leave what is what seems to you to be the ultimate truth. It's not about Johnny Where are you going to sit during recess or it's not about what what were you going to what apartment are going to get in which building? No, no, this is about choosing a hardcore battle. This is like the largest problem where there's going to be righteousness or falsehood. Whether that be genuine or not. That was difficult question.

00:10:00--> 00:10:29

Of all and is person being pressured by his peer to choose one way against the other. Now you may think to yourself, no, no, no, my friends can affect me, but not when it comes to this. Now it comes to gender or no. And then I have to correct you and myself. It actually it actually works that way. What you're going to hear here right now is very, very typical classical dilemma and situation a scenario of peer pressure that prevails over doing the right thing.

00:10:30--> 00:10:33

I'm not going to go into details, but I made the wrong choice.

00:10:34--> 00:10:48

I don't want to go through the detail because it's hard to tell you exactly what he did. But he did it. He knocked on the door the Prophet was I said and tells you open the door he did it. Son Allah Allah Muhammad Sallallahu said it was what he did to the Prophet, it stops them he walked away. Of course, the prophet it sounds to them.

00:10:49--> 00:10:57

I'm not going to talk about the perseverance of his character Alia salatu salam, because that's the only something that's beyond my ability to even explain. But I do want to talk about Cuba

00:10:59--> 00:11:03

because of peer pressure, made the worst choice of his entire life.

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

Allah Subhana Allah says in suits for Klein,

00:11:08--> 00:11:32

way Oh, may I avoid him or either your day, and the day will come when the oppressor or the wrongdoer will bite down on his fist in regrets. This is an Arabic phrase, it's it's a proverb in Arabic, I don't know why exactly. But apparently, if you really regretted something, you would bite down on your fist. Now I've never seen it, but that's what he used to do. That's how Arabs would.

00:11:33--> 00:11:57

That's how they would express their regrets. They would bite down their fists, it's just afraid. Is it just a phrase, figure of speech? Well, my Ogbu volume or either your day and the day will come when the oppressor and the wrongdoer will bite down on his face and regret. You're cool. You're cool. You're late and he has a tumor Rasul Lee sebelah. You will say, I wish, I wish I chose to go with the Prophet and walk down his path.

Yahweh Allah tell us what it means. I am now waiting. What's awaiting me is horrible punishment. Are you late any lemma Falange and Halina. I wish I never took Fula. And just to name a random name because this is a scenario that will work for everybody. every age, every place every time. There's no exception to this rule. Leighton Elam Fula and I'm Holly isla. I wish I didn't take that person as my best friend. Colleen is not a friend, Colleen is best friend, close friend,

00:12:45--> 00:12:59

your BFF person that you need to talk to every day. Y'all have them especially at a younger age, y'all have them. When you get older, you kind of lose, lose a little bit, which takes away a lot of joy of life. By the way. Having close friends is a great thing.

00:13:02--> 00:13:49

What kind of shape ah, no little incentive Azula and indeed the shaytaan has always let the let mankind down in shape and always will let you down you'll say

The God of mankind has been shattered, real was swallowed still hundreds from the evil of the one who continues to give bad thoughts and bad ideas.

00:14:15--> 00:14:21

Allah the US three Sufis so do in us, the one who continues to put that in the minds and the hearts of human beings

00:14:23--> 00:14:24

Meenal Jannetty

00:14:25--> 00:14:30

both from the jinn the shadecloth from the jinn witness from the human being

00:14:32--> 00:14:55

Shayateen in seawell, Jin Yu haber home Illa Zakuro Falco Hora shell to income and two forms to come in the form that you don't see the weak form, the form of gin, the weak form, the helpless form, the form that can do much besides open a catalog for the noob and then if you say I owe the villa and you read some Quran, they run away because they can't deal with it. But then you know, shaytaan ins

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

00:14:59--> 00:15:00


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

And they'll use every every trick in the book. And they will try and persuade you and sway you and pull you using love and using friendship and using closeness trying to make it make that mistake.

00:15:21--> 00:15:24

In Akbar made the ultimate wrong stick

00:15:26--> 00:15:49

off, but could have been one of the Sahaba I could have had an extra name to tell you about a bravery and courage and sacrifice, but I don't, I don't. I have to tell you this story with a frown on my face. I'll tell you that story with a feeling of regret and sorrow of how this person ruined his life because of his friend, because his friend pressured him to do something so he did it.

00:15:50--> 00:16:10

So next time, you feel that you've been pressured by your peers, I want you to think of this story I want you to think about Abu Jamal, think about them. And ask yourself, is it worth it? Is it really worth that? You say, you can save yourself? No, no, I would never let them take me that far, there is no limit to what peer pressure can do to you.

00:16:12--> 00:16:15

There is no limits to what peer pressure can do to you.

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

There is no better advice in this world that you'll ever get from any human being regardless of who they are. Whether from your parents or for someone sitting in my position or anyone else, then make sure you choose your friends wisely. Money comes and goes.

00:16:30--> 00:17:03

Cars are just pieces of metal houses that you get. The thing that you really need to invest in and be picky about is yourself is willing to spend time with his who you're going to allow into your life. That is the most valuable thing you have is your emotions, your feelings, your thoughts, your convictions, your practices, your behaviors. And those things are influenced by how much money you have or what car you drive or what building you live in, or profession you work. Those are those are influenced by your friends, by the people you spend time with the people you take advice from the people you look up to and the people.

00:17:05--> 00:17:42

You may be thinking, yes, she tells the kids about friends. No, I'm not telling this to kids about friends. I'm telling everybody about friends. It doesn't matter what age your aunt or uncle was in his 40s. There is no limit to this piece of advice. It never ends. You could be 80, you could be 90. If you have bad friends, you're gonna make bad choices. If you have bad friends, you'll make bad choices. It's impossible. You cannot be immune to it. You can say no, no, I'm stronger, you're not. And there's nothing wrong with that you're a human. You spend time with someone, they rub off on you, you rub off on them, it's how it works. parts of your personality will become part of theirs

00:17:42--> 00:17:50

and parts of Delta become part of yours. So if that's gonna happen, then you have the right the obligation to be picky about who you spend your time with.

00:17:53--> 00:18:20

It's not arrogance, it's not vanity, it's not cruelty. You can have a lot of acquaintances, people, you know, people that you like you shake their hand you give a hug, you're very kind to, but those who you'll spend your time with those who you'll give a part of your life to have to go through a very, very difficult screening process. You have to make sure that you will make the right choice or else this will be something less than Allah may Allah preserve all of us that one of us will be saying your milk

00:18:21--> 00:18:36

that is very generic. Late, it didn't say later in Abuja had no food and just anybody, anybody who can cause that to you and anyone who can pull you away from Allah subhanho wa taala. So yes, my younger brothers and younger sisters, choose your friends wisely.

00:18:38--> 00:18:51

Be very picky about who you can spend your time with and who you allow into your life. You go to Salah Hardy you Salam, Al maru, Isla de Holly, the human being follows the religion of his best friend

00:18:53--> 00:19:00

and Maru. Isla Deen Holly, the human being will follow the religion of his best friend.

00:19:02--> 00:19:14

That's why he says for Liang Vora hadoo comm menu Harlan, so may each and every one of us take a very hard look and long look about who he is choosing to be his best friend, or be his close friend.

00:19:17--> 00:19:22

Friendships extremely valuable in life. The friendships are what make you happy.

00:19:23--> 00:19:26

If you live a long, happy life is because he had nice, good friends.

00:19:28--> 00:19:30

Make sure you choose your friends wisely.

00:19:31--> 00:19:56

As younger people it's hard. I know. It's difficult to do that. But the skill that you will need the most in life is the ability to walk out of someone's life without burning bridges and approaching someone else. That's the best skill that you can win. I am not telling you that if someone has a bad influence on you, that you start a war. What I'm telling you to do is take a step backwards. Just take a step back.

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

Someone has bad influence on you, you know it every time

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

You spent time with them. Somehow you ended up doing something you shouldn't have done in you know it, but you like them. But they're cool.

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

They're interesting.

00:20:10--> 00:20:49

Take a step backwards. Don't burn bridges. Don't start animosities. Don't know just take a step back. It's easy. Just you just become more busy when they're not solid is, hey up. No, I have this idea that be very, very simple about it. Don't be rude. But if you know their items, I have been working with us for a long time. Sometimes I see two young people Wallahi they're there. They're really good young men very good. I know, they're not done. I know the quality of these two individuals on their own. They're they're excellent put them together and Shavon is born. Somehow. They just their chemistry is not it doesn't work, their chemistry, they just they just have this

00:20:49--> 00:21:13

influence on each other, and they start harming one another. So they put them away. I'm not telling you that the person that that is influencing you in a bad way is evil. No, just for some reason your chemistry with that person isn't good. It's not helpful for you take a step back. So okay, just take take a step back from a relationship. It's okay. It's not okay. It's your obligation to do so. If you know what's affecting you. I know.

00:21:14--> 00:21:15

I'm getting a bit worked up.

00:21:17--> 00:21:51

But I cannot emphasize the effects your friendships will have on you in your life. But I cannot emphasize it enough. No matter how much I talk to you about this issue. I will there will still be room for me to talk to you about it more. You want to fix your problems. Want to become a better Muslim. You want to be happier in your life. You want to be able to do more to achieve more to reach higher. Just show me who your friends are. I get this question. People come and talk to me with these issues in their in their 40s and 50s. I ask them a question. Some of them get offended. Tell them who we are friends and they're like, What did my friends have to do? I'm 50. It doesn't matter

00:21:51--> 00:22:11

what age your heart? Who do you spend your time with the quality time? Who do you spend time with? Those are the people who you are going to resemble and those are going to resemble you and that's your resume era. That's the group you will come with UML piano? No when it comes walking alone, your milk Yama, maybe one or two prophets who tried their best and no one listened to them.

00:22:12--> 00:22:41

But everybody will come we'll see if God Lavina Cafaro either Johanna Zuma or maybe the people and the disbelievers are going to be taken to Johanna will be taken in groups where sequela Dena Tato Rob boom, Ill Jannetty Zuma and those who are piety will be taken to Jana. Xiomara. No Man's walking alone your multi Yama. Where are you going? Well, Jana, where are your friends? No, no, you're not. No, your friends. Go join your friends wherever they are. That's why you're gonna be you're gonna be with your friends.

00:22:42--> 00:22:44

Mr. Omaha man hub.

00:22:45--> 00:22:48

This is what this feels a hadith teramoto

00:22:49--> 00:23:12

One of the fewer Hadith that we have in the books of Hadith that have certain authenticity to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, where he is, and this is the story of it. He is sitting on a camera like he is he's on the back of his camel. And this Bedouin guy from far away, says Ya Abell Qasim ya rasool Allah, Messiah. When is the Day of Judgment? Give me the timing.

00:23:13--> 00:23:49

I have work just told me what it is like him. God, my myschool I know. Mm hmm. I mean, I said I don't know. Looking man, I did tell her what have you prepared for it? For her Bella he will assume I prepared for the love of Allah and His Prophet for Carl, Omar. And then the narration and demo, the human being will find himself feel unwelcome or standing by those whom he loved the most. In this life. Whoever you love the most, those who were a part of your heart the most in life. They'll come together, you're welcome.

00:23:50--> 00:24:00

That's why strong families will come together. Spouses that loved each other truly did well come together. families, children and parents will come together. Friends will come together.

00:24:02--> 00:24:27

Nations of believers will come together because they loved choose your friends wisely. Be picky about it. Okay, the only time I'm going to tell you to be really picky. Don't open the door for everybody. No. Choose choose wisely. It's your job to make sure that you because these people are going to influence you they're going to touch your life and make a difference. Oh cabana almost became an early Sahabi

00:24:28--> 00:25:00

is one of the few names that we can talk about and seal and say this person is from hell Jahannam it's very rare that I can point out a name and say that person is in Jahannam except if Allah subhanaw taala tells me so. Like he tells me that I only tell you tells me names that I know these people are in Jahannam I can't do it for most people. But the prophet at some point pointed out a few individuals who died. They said these people are going to be punished on wealthy. One of them is Akbar. Akbar went from almost being as a hobby to being one of the people that we can say with certainties in Japan and when you go to Billa imagine the difference. Imagine the difference

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

Since for being a star to be why, because because of peer pressure, because you didn't choose your friends wisely.

00:25:09--> 00:25:50

This never ends. Don't tell me now I'm I'm old, it doesn't matter. It always matters. It will continue to matter till the day you pass away. Your friends will always influence you, they'll always have a positive or negative effect on you. Don't kid yourself and say I'm mature, much more mature now. I'm much more knowledgeable, I'm much stronger. No, you're just another human being like the rest of us. You're just as vulnerable and lonely and scared and in need of support like everybody else in the world. And we get that from our support groups, which is our friends. So choose them wisely. Or else the story here will forever be and this idea was revealed after the

00:25:50--> 00:25:50

story by the way.

00:25:52--> 00:26:13

This is you know, when it comes down to this idea right away, learning and victory by any kind of shape one or the incentive to do whatever comes after that. In the sutra. What color was soo? Yara This is the first right after it just so you understand how Allah Subhan have used this. And the Prophet will say on that day, yo, Rob Oh my lord

00:26:14--> 00:26:29

in the comi it does who has Quran Emma Jura indeed my people have chosen to leave the Quran behind because there is no better friend for you than the Quran. If you're left with no one to be your friend that made the Quran be your friend.

00:26:30--> 00:27:10

tougher to handle Quran, Jura, they've they've chosen to turn their backs to this Quran, Europe Subhan Allah, okay. I hope that story meant something as much to you as it meant to me. A few things happened during his process persecution on a site was set up, that were served as reminders to those who harmed him of who he was. And reminders to the Sahaba of who he was only a sloth was salam meaning a few things that kind of just stood out. I told you one of them went on Jamila came tried to hit him but you didn't see him for whatever reason. Something like that. I Bucha had at 1.1 day they were getting so upset. They were getting so frustrated with what he was able to do audience

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

thought towards them was influencing all these people that he said something to do his companions, people around him called Young, Latina, Roberta Muhammad in the academy. Well, Our fear and our job is to rob allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, isn't it today, I'm going to step on his neck when he makes sujood. I'm going to shove his face in the dirt. Sinhala Harley's, like you said. That's what he said.

00:27:34--> 00:27:50

So the private eyes I went through a lot as I gave you examples of things that happened to him. But whenever it came to extreme or severe humiliation, there was a small intervention. Oh, small intervention just to remind people. So we all went and everyone's watching because the Prophet Hazleton was making some children front of the Kaaba.

00:27:51--> 00:27:56

He arrived right beside the Prophet alayhi salatu salam stands for 15 seconds and comes back.

00:27:57--> 00:28:13

He comes back but he's coming back for color. You know you're one of the people sitting there call Luca Elena will be right in which he led the hobby he will how come I just come back to us right now with a different face than he left with. He was pale. He didn't look the same. Didn't look well. Mikado welcome over

00:28:16--> 00:28:17

there what do you do?

00:28:18--> 00:28:49

For Karla? This is what I wish I had said for Carla Phaedra a two by any you are but you know who hung up on Minnaar load the job was to rock the rocks when I got there. Suddenly Didn't you see it? He started to see them Didn't you see what I saw? You see like this? It was it was this weird trench of fire that was between me and him I was almost got burnt. And they're looking at him saying what trench if you didn't see I was just standing there. We're gonna burn me and they're like, What are you talking about? What are you on? What even taking there's nothing there was nothing there. You just stood there in front of him and came back. And he's not laughing.

00:28:50--> 00:29:05

There's a small little reminder of his prophecy. So Allah Hadees Lucinda. He'll be persecuted. He'll be oppressed. You'll be harmed physically you'll be harmed financially harmed socially hung personally. When it came to extreme he'll be humiliation, Allah subhanaw taala kind of gave a reminder to those around him.

00:29:07--> 00:29:12

One day, a Bedouin man came to Mecca. And this man

00:29:15--> 00:29:38

was owed by Abuja how money was taken from him. I take it from him. Eggs and milk because the Bedouins they had a lot of livestock so they would come and sell it in the cities. And I will hook on his job which I had told him I'll pay later. Just just write it down. I'll pay you later. He did that a few times. And this man will come and say you know you haven't paid me yet. You owe me this. This and this amount of money you haven't paid me at. And a

00:29:39--> 00:29:46

certain point told him just go away. I'll pay you what I want to pay. You just leave. He's a weak man. He's poor. He has no tribe.

00:29:47--> 00:30:00

I didn't feel that you have to do anything about it. This man comes in the middle of muck and he starts calling saying Hogan got my hook for me man. What do you need me to have the gwillim Tight I've been oppressed. I've been I've been I'm I want my money. No

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

Are you can anyone get me my money from this person? So as a joke, some of the most critical ones sitting around the Kaaba, I thought it would be funny. If they if they did this if they called them in for carbonara. I'm now ready for Julian. Yeah, it can be hectic. You know someone will get you get your money for you. Someone who knows very well, which I was afraid of who we go to Mohamed salah. And that was a joke because of Muhammad. Of course, they don't get along at all. But they won't tell you I knew I had a joke to laugh at the Prophet it so it was because he at the time he was weak. He didn't have it was at the beginning. He didn't have much. So this man goes he knocks on

00:30:34--> 00:30:35

the door of the Prophet. He

00:30:36--> 00:30:40

says Moroni and the hula a teeny bit team and hydrologic Allah and

00:30:42--> 00:31:17

they told me that no one can get me my wealth. Or my How am I right from this person except you. He starts begging him. Please, I beg you help me but I don't. So the point of it is I can see people laughing and so he knows the joke. It's a joke. You could have told him brother look, they they let me tell you the story is what this is what was going on and they're just they wanted to make play a joke on you. For Karina, I'm Urtica be here. So yes, I will get you you're right for you. So Allah Hi, Mr. Lim. So you took the man by the hand, and he goes, he knocks on the door. He doesn't know what's gonna happen next is awesome. He was just that type of person. Didn't matter. You never buy

00:31:17--> 00:31:45

this right? By the way, this guy never. We don't know this guy's name. And we have no information about whether he ever became Muslim or not. And the Prophet of Islam never never never sold it. Like he never came. So before we do that, how about you? Because no, no, none of that. You're oppressed. Let's go and fix this now. But yada yada, you have nothing. You have no leverage. You have no ability. That's fine. There's no oppressed person. I'll go and do my best. I'll go and do what will make me or milkymap At least someone free from from blame.

00:31:47--> 00:32:14

As they say, y'all will accept job. The takeaway, the film that I didn't do anything that I watched someone was oppressed. So he took him by the hand and he goes he knocks on the door of Abuja Hill. So we'll have him open the people are laughing so people follow to watch to see what's gonna happen next because it can be hilarious comedy when he's young, he's gonna you know, kick them both out and you know, curse them off. It'd be great. So he knocks on the door and we try to open up the Prophet alayhi salam says Yeah, but how come only how the Roger relay command Do you owe this person money?

00:32:17--> 00:32:38

So he was quiet for it He repeated it again. Do you this Matt you owe this man money for cola? Nom said yes I do. I owe money for call. Ed Nalli he didn't go inside and get him his money. Call a noun so he goes inside and it comes out with a bag of money and gives it to the man the man sounds any paid any thanks the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam the Prophet so I said I'm taking them and leaves

00:32:40--> 00:32:43

now the people who thought this was a joker standing there looking at each other. So they come to

00:32:45--> 00:32:50

what did you do? This was supposed to this is not how this was supposed to play out. My fault

00:32:53--> 00:32:58

did you leave your whatever your your Muslim what was happening? For cod Mr. Ito? Can you just see

00:32:59--> 00:33:11

como Madre no matter? What are we going to see? He came with the guy and he asked you for the money and you gave it to him for kinda kinda Khalifa who had been in un for coonara. Behind him was this huge camera was blowing fire. Will

00:33:12--> 00:33:14

he be mad? He was going to burn me but give him the money.

00:33:16--> 00:33:23

What are you talking about? Camel who were no camo? Are you psychotic? What? What's wrong with you? You see what was going on?

00:33:24--> 00:33:30

Salalah Hardy. He didn't know what was gonna happen. You had no idea what he saw. He just did the right thing.

00:33:31--> 00:33:48

He just did the right thing. He just did what he knew should be done at that moment someone's coming in. So this is the beauty of his parents rally slow to swim, you think you'd ever come knock on the door asking for help. And he would say no later, never, no chance, no chance you knock on that door and ask for help. It'd be sent back, no chance.

00:33:49--> 00:34:22

If you asked him, if you needed him sort of like send me we're gonna be there with whatever he had, no matter how little it was, no matter how he would offer everything. He had Alia Sato. So that's just who he was. And the Sahaba, who later on learned from him did the same. So you have all these stories in the Sierra, and the history of Sahaba doing things that when you listen to your life now, that didn't happen. Now, that's a made up story. It's not a made up story. This is someone who lives with Muhammad. I seldom saw him do it and then did the same. They would give up everything. Sometimes they would empty their homes from food and clothing to give to people were knocking on the

00:34:22--> 00:34:32

door. And you wonder who would does that? No one does that. Yes, some people do that. Well humbled so I sell them and those who are with them would do that. We're not required to do that much. But you know,

00:34:33--> 00:34:35

to whatever extent you should do something.

00:34:39--> 00:34:40

All right.

00:34:41--> 00:34:45

Along with that, in terms of the persecution, he went through, all he saw was

00:34:48--> 00:34:53

the perseverance of the Sahaba is the next part of the of this, this period.

00:34:54--> 00:35:00

I will put it all together at the end. I want to give you examples of what the Sahaba went through. Again, I'll tell you a fraction of this too.

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

Stories that actually exist in the books, if you want to know all the stories have to go back in the books, read them. They're endless, of what they went through men and women. I'll give you, you know, examples here and there, just so you understand. Because if you feel like Mohammed Salim is the Prophet, so, you know, he goes through all that, you know, he's the prophet, but let's talk about you know, people,

00:35:17--> 00:35:47

people like you and I, people believed in him, it is thought to them took the Quran who said La ilaha illallah, Muhammad Rasulullah. And then this was their challenge, you're gonna see their challenge their challenges, physical, their challenge was life and death. Their challenge was loss of everything. And then at the end, all I want you to do is to ask yourself, What's your challenge? What's my challenge, because it's obviously not the same challenge. Obviously, the stories I'm gonna tell you that what happened to them is not happening to you and I

00:35:48--> 00:36:19

Not even close. It's not the same nature of difficulties, but we do have difficulties and we do have challenges. I'm not here to tell you, you know, you're fine. You know, we do have our challenges, they're just not the same. Identify the challenges that our generation is going to go through so that we can actually do our job. So that if you had lived back then you could have saved yesterday live back then I would have stood my ground like Bilal did, like so many I did, I would say I would have done it, I wouldn't have chickened out and walked away, would have turned my back and said no to I would have done the right thing. If you're gonna say that about yourself, and inshallah you

00:36:19--> 00:36:25

can, then make sure you do it now prove it by by by standing your ground against the challenges you have in this era.

00:36:26--> 00:36:28

Let's talk about Minnesota, there's my favorite story.

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

That Massoud

00:36:32--> 00:36:38

and then Mr. Wood I told you about earlier, a couple of holidays I do. I gave you a small intro about who he was a young shepherd.

00:36:39--> 00:37:01

Very, very simple beginnings, very poor family. Very simple background, not very well educated. Later, I have Mr. He's going to be one of the most knowledgeable Sahaba that we have one of the huge fuqaha of the Sahaba, who later on not only conveyed that interpretation of the Quran, but a lot of what the prophets I send them said someone who actually had a huge influence on how Islam was was

00:37:02--> 00:37:07

brought to us. Even Massoud, however, physically,

00:37:09--> 00:37:48

was very, very short. extremely short. And he was very, very skinny as well, to the point where the Sahaba were very close to him with sometimes, you know, crack a joke every once in a while about how short and small he was just a small guy. Once he was they were sitting under a tree chatting, and there was some days on the top of the tree. So the Prophet said, Hey, can you know can someone get get us some of the dates it was she was owned by one of the guys there he's like, yeah, get the dates. So with Mr. Wood being you know, the skinny essence, I was like, I'll do it. So he goes up the tree. So have a look up and they see his legs. His legs look really really really thin. So So I

00:37:48--> 00:37:49

was just laughing

00:37:50--> 00:38:23

thing jokes in his legs. And Michoacan here, guys do this all the time. You know, it's just it's just how guys go. And Mr. He's up there. He's listening to them laughing his legs. He's, you know, he's fine by it. It's not bothering him. It's all everyone's enjoying. It's a funny, it's a funny thing, because he's we just really smart. He's just very thin. So he's messing around with him. Look at your legs. What's wrong? where's the where's the meat to the system? Like twigs what's going on? So I was laughing. He's taking the profit loss and I'm however, for some reason I didn't get stood out to a sudden didn't like it. I think because of the story I'll tell you today. My belief is

00:38:23--> 00:38:44

because of the story I'm going to tell you today. That's why I didn't like it. He knew people were joking around but he didn't like it for a moment. He just didn't like it for clinical taco when I'm in who? Now you're laughing at his legs. Tobacco and I'm in the highlight he says he you think that it's very calm. Hola Hola, Houma, and Hola, Hosanna woman Jabari. They're heavy, they're heavier in the eyes of Allah was in the scale, he'll milk them and then the motion of a hood.

00:38:46--> 00:38:59

So they they quieted down a bit, even though it was a joke and no one was hurt or harmed. But that's how he felt Alia. So to sum I believe because of the stories you know, Didn't Mr. Wood one day, during the time during this, maybe the midst of this fifth year,

00:39:01--> 00:39:07

just before something really important happened, which we'll talk about next time and shall, next time will be interesting because something something uplifting will happen next time Not this time.

00:39:09--> 00:39:37

Maybe the fourth fifth year, the Prophet sallallahu sallam was no longer capable of standing in front of the Kaaba and reciting the Quran openly you couldn't do it anymore. The persecution was so heavy he couldn't do it. And they were being prohibited from reciting the Quran openly they couldn't do that anymore. So the Prophet SAW Selim was sitting one day he was feeling down and everyone else was as well because they couldn't do that anymore you know they were the rates are slowly slowly be taken away. That's fine. I'm gonna use Miro who will Khurana Liam will someone make them listen to the crime today?

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

Why because a beautiful Soto had just been revealed something too beautiful to keep to yourself. Right? Man I lemon Quran Hello call in sir and Allah will ban a sham soil comma Robles ban when non GMO was scheduled with a student beautiful, just too beautiful to keep to yourself. So he said who will make the most of the Quran today for clubbing my throat. I'll do it yo Sula.

00:40:00--> 00:40:06

The Prophet slicin praises him is the seventh episode but sit down please. Now you need someone who can take a beating.

00:40:08--> 00:40:25

It's not going to be you. So we asked sin minus neurohormone Quran it must oh sorry I know smell homie Allah so I will do it for Karina and I honestly can't remember so just just sit I appreciate the enthusiasm but I'm looking for when the bigger guys and then he repeated the third time and it miss Jose and Atlas mirror homeo rasool Allah

00:40:27--> 00:40:30

La Timnah and you don't Don't Don't hold me back let me do this.

00:40:31--> 00:40:50

So he gets up in the sojo. Dillahunty goes Oh, William and Johanna will Quran the first person to go public with the Quran with no fear at all, didn't Massoud. He goes he stands for the Kaaba. And he says I always have a learning machine oil James Mullah Muhammad Al Rahim al Rahman, I love Al Quran. Kala Collinson, a llama will burn and they come and he started beating him.

00:40:52--> 00:40:54

start beating him they beat him hard.

00:40:55--> 00:40:57

Until Ibis comes in the midst of and he pulls them out.

00:40:58--> 00:41:22

I must wasn't the Muslim at the time, or maybe he was we don't really know. We don't know what his status was during those days. But he pulled mister no doubt. It must was brought back to the Sahaba he's all bruised up and beaten. So they do what they need to do for him the next day. The prophets, I tell them says when you smell human colonial rule for who, you know, make them listen to the Quran today. So Michelle puts his hands up, but I'll do it with

00:41:24--> 00:41:25


00:41:26--> 00:42:00

There's no need caught and it was amerihome. I'll do it and he goes and he reads it again. They beat him again. And Ibis pulls them out again. And the third day, the Prophet was asked the same question. He puts his hand up again. So you won't do it again. Man. To be fair, you will not do this again. I forbid you for Kalia rasool Allah Mahayana la cama Hearn why the yellow I've never been less afraid of them that I am today. I have no I don't fear them anymore. Yeah, Rasul Allah colors they've been beaten what else I can do they've done the worst they can do look at me that they can't do anything else man. What are they gonna? Do I know JoJo Madera been less afraid of them than I am

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


00:42:02--> 00:42:20

Mr. Wood will be the person to prophesy. Selim would come to him one day, and he'll say give them a suit. If Quran Al Quran, read the Quran, I want to listen for Karla rasool Allah, Allah Al Quran, I Lake wa ecozones and I'm going to read it upon you when it was revealed to you and I'm going to recite it to you yet to tell us you're supposed to teach us to

00:42:21--> 00:42:24

read for Cara Abdul Massoud Nyssa

00:42:25--> 00:42:44

the Prophet was sitting there just listening with his hand on his on his own thigh, but Allahu Anhu for Keifa either Ming Cooley or met him be Shaheed Bic Allah, Allah Isha Hida so what are you going to do here is to Allah and the day when I bring an ambassador,

00:42:45--> 00:42:52

Shahid Shahid is not just a martyr, but someone who will be the standard, someone who will be held accountable.

00:42:53--> 00:43:05

I will bring an ambassador for every single nation, and I will bring you your US will Allah to be the martyr for these people, for the SL, iclm his hand on my thigh Bacala Hasbrook, that's enough

00:43:06--> 00:43:10

to fade out Rasulullah he ABCYa look up in the profits, I'm just tears running down his face.

00:43:12--> 00:43:19

The first person to go public with the Quran was Abdullah who Mr. Wood, or the Allahu Anhu. And, you know, the beauty of the story for me.

00:43:20--> 00:43:32

Now, this is this is a really, this example that I gave you is a very extreme example. It's very extreme, but it really is fits the, the concept of of confronting your fears, life,

00:43:33--> 00:44:04

I know is an extreme example where he goes, and he and he gets physically harmed. And when he does things, like I'm not afraid anymore, I used to be afraid of them, he should be afraid of what he could do to me, I don't fear them anymore. You know, sort of, I don't care, they can do what they want. The worst has already happened. I've lost my fears. And taking that concept and just maybe thinking about it for a moment. Make sure you confront your fears in life. Think long and hard about what is it that what it is that you fear the most what you know that you shouldn't be doing but you're not for whatever reason and confront them. You grow as a human being you become stronger, you

00:44:04--> 00:44:07

become more capable. You know, fight your demons get

00:44:09--> 00:44:12

rid of them. URL the earlier the better.

00:44:13--> 00:44:19

This is a really, really extreme example, I'm not asking for this. Don't do this. Don't go and read the Quran in the middle of Walmart or anything like that.

00:44:21--> 00:44:28

It's not helpful. It's not there's not what we need today. It's not it's not it's not the challenge that we have to do that that was a challenge they had at that time. This was a it

00:44:30--> 00:44:46

was it's handy. It's a challenge. And I tell you, the rights were taken away you can't read this publicly and yes, we're going to do it today. It's a different different nature. The whole thing is different. But still concept applies. I'll tell you one more story before we end inshallah.

00:44:47--> 00:45:00

Once Ilima Marlena you thought it was asked man ash Jonas, who is the most brave of all people? Now they asked him the question with the intention of getting a specific answer

00:45:00--> 00:45:37

They wanted him to say myself because he was known for his bravery. If you ask if you take each Sahabi and try to break down their characteristics and take one characteristic that they were known for, then you would take it you know the law who I knew and say that was a brave one. All his life from 10 years old, to the day he died of the Allahu Anhu and brave bravery just defined him. So they asked him the question, so you would say myself and tell his story and then and then to the to the surprise of everybody who was sitting to shock them or when they asked him the question, Takada, Abu Bakr ash Jana, so Becca was the most brave of all people. I can tell you one thing Oh, Becca was

00:45:37--> 00:45:48

known for that. Know for a lot of stuff that wasn't he was known for bravery. Specifically for Harlow. Keith, when he was what do you say? Oh, bucket *a, Yeoman.

00:45:49--> 00:45:59

Work of Rasulullah Hey, you suddenly Mr. merkabah there was a day when the sun was standing and praying for the Kaaba. But yah hoo Gil nano Mail Call me Yetta Dafa Amina Hubei Nahum

00:46:01--> 00:46:04

eight nine guys came by so I pushing them around,

00:46:05--> 00:46:08

you know, hooligans a gang.

00:46:10--> 00:46:14

So pushing him around. He's turning them out Esau to sit and very, very patiently.

00:46:15--> 00:46:39

He's not going to confront physically, that goes against the rules we talked about. It's not going to start a fight. It's a bunch of ignorant young people. So the pushing him around, my guy pushes him this way. Then I pushed him another way, tripping him pulling out his get Libya, pulling out is that remember? Just Just, just abuse. Just open abuse is awesome. Stand your ground, no problem. But then Ovako season?

00:46:41--> 00:46:44

Oh, look, I can't help it. You can't stand it. So he comes running in.

00:46:45--> 00:47:14
