The philosophy of the increase to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was not nearly enough in terms of what he was thinking about, but the numbers were still increasing. So they felt that they weren't getting anywhere. So they tried to they started to begin to negotiate with Abu Talib trying to get him to lift his hand mean to take away his support from the Prophet alayhi salatu. Salam upon him almost did but didn't really. So when they felt that there was a dead end with Ebola, and they had left off with Ebola and a really, really bad note, the last time they spoke to him, it got really ugly, there was a speak of war, there was speak of death and blood, so they couldn't go back and
speak to Allah begin. So they begin to negotiate with the Prophet alayhi salatu. Salam, it is very interesting period during his life audio software. So because when you when you hear the offers, they come forward with what they have to say you start questioning, is this guy actually telling the story correctly, he doesn't seem to be the weaker, the weaker party in this in this ordeal. It sounds the way that they're negotiating what they're asking for that somehow he has the upper hand, I used salatu salam. And he actually didn't in many ways. Maybe it wasn't apparent to him at the time, it used to say or to the Sahaba is sometimes not even to us now. But he did. And the reason is
very simple. If you stand by luck, you always have the upper hand, just by the mere fact that you're standing by what is right, that you are doing the right thing saying the right thing standing by that which is righteous, you have the upper hand. Even if your numbers are low, and you don't have a lot of you don't have a big army or a lot of people to support you and not enough money. You still have the upper hand because you're standing by a truck and there's nothing more divine than that never was never will be my sometimes you can't see it. So they come to negotiate with Somalia. Salatu Salam. So what happens is the elders of Quraysh all gathered together, around eight or nine
And I'm talking to big names. I'm talking to big guns and we will use movie I'll also be illegal Sofia and soccer. But how do I how can I be a sham? All these people come together they start saying we have to strike find a way to end this last one of us go and negotiate with him directly. Who are they going to choose? They're gonna choose the most respected person amongst them. I believe earthborn Robbia, one of the elders and leaders of Quraysh a very elderly man in his 90s very well respected all across the region. So they say can you go and can you negotiate with the provider you sought to make some offers? So he says yes. He walks towards the Prophet alayhi salatu salam this is
how this is the setting. They stand far away. The Prophet LASR doesn't can see them but he can't hear them not so far. They just just far enough and he sees Abu al Waleed earthbound Baba coming towards him. Then he comes in says with the Prophet It is thought to send the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he welcomes him. He sits and he begins to speak Bacala you have been lucky in Nikka Hey to da la mina, Phil Ashira. T when necessary. We'll have some,
you know, where you stand regarding all of us in terms of your background, your heritage, your lineage, the respect that we all have for you. You are the grandson of Abdul Muttalib mystery try trying to allude to
when the gadget tena was you took Omaka nylon TV he had on cuplock Then you have came to us with something that is new, that no one has done before you. First the first
wash attempt early Katana waka Feltham and Melba Minerva tuna. So you came to us and you have taken our way of life. And you've made it look horrible. And you have taken out religion and you've broken it down to something that is worthless. And you're saying that our parents before I assumed it the same way we're wrong.
And this is the point that they could never get over by the way. Just put a little mental pin in it. That point they couldn't get over that point.
Happens a lot. And I'll give you examples later of how it can happen to us as well. And it does happen to us all the time.
When the audio Aliko moron, I like attacked by Alibaba and I'm going to make some offers to you and I hope you'll at least it maybe accept one or two of these offers. For Carlos and Allah hottie he was a limb pull. Yeah, well, we'll need a smile. Go ahead and we'll we'll say what you want. I'm listening.
And he begins the mouth, he begins to say the most ridiculous things that could be said to Muhammad Rasool Allah.
The most ridiculous things, someone who is speaking to Gibreel someone who is who has explained to him the message of ALLAH SubhanA wa sallam beginning from Adam, moving down to Ibrahim and it's my aid in his heart and your joven espouse and Musa and Isa. All these people say message, he's caring. He's the last one of all and then some guy is telling him something goes similar to the follows. He goes in kinda mad to redo Volcan moluccana, aka Allina. If it's sovereignty that you want, we will make your kin weighing
And then to read, so where the NACA Elena had turned up at 930
in Lubbock, and if it's Yanni status that you're looking for that we will make sure that you become the leader of that and that will he will not make a decision unless it goes through for you first. We're in kind of man and to read Gemma Anna come in Oh, Marina Hotel, Sarita have the Nana. And if it's money or after that we will gather amongst ourselves more money than we all have individually so that you have more money than all of us. You'll be the richest of the rich.
He's listening to this audio SelectUSA. But garbage What are you talking about?
money and status. What are you doing? But he's listening on
Wallahi they are ridiculous offers they are ridiculous. They make no sense at all. If it were me, I wouldn't give him an hour I would not have given him the time of the day to make these silly and ridiculous offers. But he did tell you to listen and he listened to the guy. He listened to him. We have to listen to people we have to listen. No matter how ridiculous what they say may seem to us you need to listen. It's not about whether you agree with it. Or how far away your way of thought is from what is being said it doesn't matter you need to listen. Sometimes what being said is so beyond who you are and what you believe in and what you've dedicated your life for that you feel that it is
physically impossible to sit down and listen Remember the Prophet Allah Allah to us them as they are telling him when kinda nice out and to read the words you're not coming to likability energy manda Milan. He told him if you want women, you want to get married. If it's women that you are what are you doing?
How do you start to STEM is carrying the Quran, he's speaking to Gibreel and you're telling him money and status and women and sovereignty and
we're in can you see how even more ridiculous is going to be? When Kennedy and Vic O'Meara Don Vic
the tarantula column one had turned out to be awkward bear in order to you Dornoch, and if you are sick, if you have some disease of some sort.
They're telling him if you're insane
if you have some mental disease, or you're seeing things or hearing things, or you're illusion or delusional, will bring off pay money and bring doctors to take care of you. He's listening to as soon as he goes on and on with these ridiculous offers.
And then he finishes.
So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, just to be extra polite, because politeness is a part of how he how you lived your Salah to us and sometimes you forget that he's extremely polite, very high, though. Ideal salatu salam, very, very high, higher than anything I've ever seen in my life. And examples are endless data. Yeah, well, we'll need Are you are you done? Are you finished? Now in a rude way, but are you finished your offers or I don't want interrupt you basically saying because
DACA is not only can I respond, or can I answer tell you? Are you just gonna come and say this and leave *wad astronomic. I'll listen, I'll hear what you have to say. Why people don't listen to you, you have to listen to them first. It's very, very simple law of the universe.
It goes for everybody. If your father, your teacher, your spouse, your friend, or even your issue, makes no difference. If you don't listen, people will not listen. As simple as that. We have made our communications and life one way
everything has to be a hierarchy of somehow of some sort. And it's not the Prophet LASR to some did not function like that during his life with the Sahaba and that is not how the world actually that's not how things flourish and and actually see see success. You'll see many examples. So the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. What do you think his answer is going to be?
He just says the following because it was a villa him in a che la and you're watching Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim hermy zero minute Walkman your Rahim ki turban firstly that to who Quran and our OB Komiya Allah Munna but she wrong. What are the for our fellow whom for whom layer your smartphone collude as a community member to the owner really well? You know, women being in eBay uniqa hijab farmer in Nana loon

So mythos are dealing with a mood. And at that point there's a beginner suitable set by the way that will really occupy big jumps off his feet.
takes his hand and put it puts it on the face of the Prophet Elise was on his mouth, saying no shut took Allah Hora Nasha took hola hola Rania, Al Qasim Nasha took up Allah he will rock him, I swear to I asked you by what by the name of Allah and whatever relations of kinship that we have, because we're related, I asked you by Allah and our relationship to please stop, please stop. And then he noticed how ridiculous he looked. See, the last verse says if they refuse all of this, please go and read the first page of suited for it. Take a
standard translation. You don't need me to explain things to you. It's very it's very clear, self explanatory. At the end of it in number 13. He says if they refused and tell them, I warn you from a punishment, like the punishment that came to add with the mood. Apparently when he said it Alia Salatu was Salam recite it was so powerful. It was so meaningful. His heart was in it, that he had a 90 year old man have an emotional reaction to it.
And when he noticed that he was he was overreacting. He was panicking with his hand on the Prophet mouth asking him swearing please I beg you, I beg you enough, a big no more. He became very embarrassed. So he took his hand down he sat feeling very embarrassed. How
a committee our customers, please I'm Sorry, I interrupted you continue to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam continued to read through the possibility until there's a session.
And once he made a decision that at least
got up to continue to read when he'd waited for him to change anything around. And he left.
Apparently, when you read the Quran, Allah salatu salam, it was more than just the letters in the dish read.
He actually felt what he was saying. He actually meant it. You know, they say back in the day you talk to any of your parents, about modern Jani arts and music and back in the day, they'll say back in the day they used to sing from their hearts, you'll find you must have an older person in your family who tells you that but the older ages Yong Chol to him and those people and what they do now is all garbage because back then they sang from they said these things from their hearts. You felt it. Apparently when he read the Quran out of your throat twisted, I mean also came from his heart. He read it with feelings, he felt it, it Trans mitad and transfer to the person in front of him and
he moved us about about Robbia he scared him just by the words he said he was sitting there Alia Sato said I'm completely silent. I was making some he wasn't he just sat there and said just read the Quran.
He was able to provoke a reaction in him. We don't do that anymore. We don't read the Quran like that. You don't read it we don't really don't absorb it doesn't enter doesn't enter the house. It's sad because when you when you finally made insha Allah you will come to when you finally realize the depth and the beauty of these words, you start to actually see it for what it is, you will regret the time that you spent in your life doing anything else. And you will hope with all your heart that others could feel the same way you do towards the words that you are reciting and reading and it's the biggest loss in my mind. And in my in my heart. When I see people who don't connect with the
Quran, it kills me. I don't know what to do. How do I fix that for you? Because we're all in a second but you're in especially Muskegon if you don't enjoy it, if it doesn't mean something to you if you don't listen to it, and I just said those words and he was nine years old, old man but couldn't couldn't help it. Unfortunately, we don't have evidence that he accepted Islam.
But he goes back he leaves the profit exhausted and he leaves and he goes back and they look at him and it was a few and looks at the Bucha and he says look at the Isla de la cama will Walid bin laden with Hillary the hubby. He has come back to you I will believe the different face he left with one face and this is a different person coming back he was
the guy is any texture changed? He was a bit more pale when he came back
for fire. Yeah, who eat what happened for Carla doesn't do
The SEC you didn't accept this now unfortunate as far as we know, you don't know maybe you did. Probably didn't. But the words that he said to them was reporting he said
yeah mashallah foolish, smart oni will athlete Rooney Leo Mazzone, bad to her to naming comedy. I want you to listen to me and obey me just this once and never obey me again. Just give me this one thing from you just one thing. In the same year two men who Kelemen Lee Sambucol will win a Sahara workshop I've heard from him things. This is not the work of wizards. This is not the work of poets. This is not the work of anything that I've ever encountered in my life.
We're in no say a coup Nicola Mahina about him. And what he is saying is going to reach very far places. It is going to turn in something great one day for Hulu. But you know who were they you know, now you read, allow him to do whatever it is he wants to do.
For a no.
In Java heavy Hill out of blue, goofy to me, who are you to come? If he takes us in he goes to the Arabs and Arabs refuse him and kill him. Then they get rid of him for you.
We're in Canada will milk from WinCo, whom will cook home where is Zhu Zhu calm. And if he goes to Aaron for this and he prospers and he is successful, then his sovereignty is yours. And his name and status is yours. Yours from the same. You're all Quraysh.
This is what he this is what he thought. Just let him do what he wants to do. He has something special. I don't know what it is. But what he is saying is special I've heard at all. I am 90. I've heard it all. I've never heard anything like this.
You need to let him speak. All he ever wants to never forget that in this era. All he was looking for was just freedom of speech. Just when you know the basic freedoms. First, second, third amendment. I don't know what it is, sir First Amendment, just to say here's what to say what he wants to say. Just to listen to him. And they said no, you can't speak.
They deprived him from the right of explaining what he wants to explain. So they said the people were stood there for Colorado, Sahara aka Yeah, but worried he used his magic on you. Cordova will will lead or you've lost your mind. You're too old. plus year old you have no you're losing your mind. That's why you're seeing these things. They refused. But this is the shahada last but not labia after he had this encounter with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam
so what do they do after that? So they meet
all seven of them again, excluding this time, I'll be willing to admit Robbie, as all the Gibson. Yeah, and you do whenever you don't agree with them, they exclude you. And they have a different meaning because you just want people who agree with them. And that's it. So they meet again, and they say this time we call him we call the prophet is awesome to us. And we speak to Mohammed ourselves. So they sent to him saying, Yeah, Mohammed, will you please come? And I can only imagine. Yeah, I need the pressure. He was under all your thoughts of coming to a meeting like this, you're entering the room where all your enemies exist. These are the reasons that things aren't working
out. It's these people here. I start to assemble spend a lot of time trying to do Dawa to them I'll give you examples of that in Charlotte to come. He was spent a lot of time speaking to these leaders trying to get something out of them trying to get them to listen sometimes more than he should and the Quran will come and correct him. So he's going to speak to the leaders so he enters and they make similar offers. These are saying similar things yo bro you did this and this and how about you know we figured out some way to work it out and something we can offer your money or whatever it is you need. You're sick if you're tired if you're
to who the unwelcome I did not I was not I didn't come with this so I can take her money. Well, you saw what a fee come? No, did I do this? Or can I somehow I will become Yanni with higher status. What will Monica fee come? Nor am I asking to be king?
When I say demon Betson when I say be me, I am not Secondly, there's nothing wrong with me. When I tell you to come be lazy but I certainly Allah Hubei I have come to you with that which which Allah subhanaw taala has sent me when I come but she you're on Windows here. And all I am to you
is someone who is going to give you the Good, glad tidings of a great future. Or someone who will warn you what will come if you don't listen,
to move home in New York to move kind of how vaccum Dunia Will you accept what I tell you. And that will be the best thing you've ever done for yourselves and don't yet. We'll talk about woohoo, money, if you refuse it
early, he had 1030 That's 30 If you refuse it I will keep on doing this until I die until I'll keep on pushing for this until the last day of my life.
So it didn't work out. He left.
So a few people come
first two people were believed in lira and Mikulas even house they can't beat them to the leaders and they say yeah Muhammad
just look your urn has a couple of stuff that we don't like you think you can maybe make some adjustments to it just take out the part where you talk about the idols you know Muhammad left when it was very important to western part to all the tribes just just just take that part out everything else is awesome. We are totally we're totally on it with you. So Tara ham good so the good what else autonomous gain good roll with that but can you just take out that part? Well either too early him yeah tuna units to Tunis was revealed by the lady in an aisle junella Anna and once you recite upon them are clear verses of what is what Islam actually is. Those who are not who don't believe that
they will ever meet their Lord will say ETV Quran in the radio. Oh, but still, can you change the Quran or make some adjustments or get another one? Full? Maya Cooley and Oba de la whom in Tilka NFC, tell them it's wasn't my choice. You see, they're acting as if the prophet Alia sort of made it all up. And you're saying the the company said yeah, we know you made this up. How about you just, you know, play play ball. The Prophet is saying, I
need to understand I didn't do any of this. This is what Allah is teaching. You need to listen. But of course that would, so they leave him so his cousin, I Tikka midodrine McCollum, who's the Prophet Alia says trams and her son is Abdullah had been at the Omiya. So he's the Prophet Alia stands for his cousin. So it comes to him. And he started saying yes to Allah. Look, come back. If you Yeah, Mohammed, come back. You didn't believe that he was. So yeah, Muhammad come back.
We have a few more things you want to talk about? So the Prophet isozyme comes back? This is who's who's weaker here?
Who is who has the weaker hand here? Is the Prophet alayhi salatu salam? Or is the people who were Gandhi don't trying to get somebody can't get anything. I have a question for him. Why didn't he accept sovereignty.
He was offered on three occasions I brought up to there's another one. He was offered to become king, the king of Mecca. Never before in history was the king of Mecca.
The word King was never used regarding the governance of the city of McIver or Quraysh.
Ganesha was never involved in the mental after Swa, well, of course, he didn't exist. There's no magic. So the par value has been offered here become king. Because I always thought, Well, if he became king
probably make things easier, then you could, you know, basically grant himself and all the Muslims the rights, he could, you know, silence those non Muslims and, and to be honest, the sila story would have been very different. There'll be no real need to go to Medina, to make that immigration for the dude by the little origin, all this stuff.
Want to see once he's king, he can control he can get rid of all the people who are in all the enemies. They were rid of anyways, that Bucha has died in Bejeweled, and they all got rid of he got rid of them anyways, might as well just do it as king. Why? Why not?
What was the reason for that?
It's actually pretty straightforward one. See, the ends don't justify the means, right?
Or do they ever heard of that the end justifies the mean. That's a huge, huge ethical problem. Huge. The ends never justify the mean, ever. I don't care what the end is, I don't care how beautiful a picture you can draw of the universe. The means have to be just as beautiful. If the means mean that at one point, at any point, you have to somehow compromise your morals or your ethics, or do things in it play or play dirty,
then what you're doing is no different than what your enemies are doing. And everyone is equal. Now, what I just said, is actually not something that everybody agrees to. Believe it or not. There are many Muslims who don't agree to this. In many examples, in many situations historically and today, who believe it there are ends that are powerful enough and important enough that we can that we can compromise the means and you can play dirty and do think No, never, never. I used to. This is the this is the most important point of his entire life. He never played dirty ever. He was one of the most important politicians of the seventh century of the seven theI Neva Mita de century. Never once
did he play dirty not once, not once, and he paid for that. He paid for that from his pocket financially socially. He paid with his blood with his family with his lie
If not once did he ever did he ever play dirty? He could have easily said I'll be the king and then I'll change everything. No, that's that's that's not right. That's not right. You force people do that you don't force people to do things people have to make choices on their own. You can't accept it for now then change what you want to do later just before well the means is to slam beings and you eat and you can actually save so many Muslims from dying and but
still, it's not it's not the right way to do things. So you don't do it. And he didn't talk to us so he refused he assaulted some time and time again. And I'm gonna give you examples if you think this is this is an extreme example, you're gonna see the examples throughout his life and time and time again he'll be given offers, you will refuse them because it's just not the right thing to do. It actually exhausted the people of correlation. Because like, come on, please just just give us something give us something nothing. He gave them nothing. Only that which he is capable or you can compromise some things in the deen some things are not fundamentals we can get rid of certain
issues. But others know what is that in the Quran? What do I know today? He knew for you they don't. They just want you to compromise and they'll give up everything because they don't believe in anything anyways. They have no beliefs that are important to them. They just want you so he goes back down to Laguna Beach. And he starts to offer him things I'll move move to the Oh, it's not there.
Doesn't matter you know as soon as
it's towards the end of it. It says work hard to learn not mineka had to Jorah and Anna an Aldi Jambu Ah. Oh, to cool agenda tune Mina healing YNAB for to fit German and her Akela heard of JIRA.
was going to skip a summer camp, um, to Elena Kisa eau de Avila. He will mela EKG Fabiola. They continue to move on. You say look, we'll believe in you.
But we need you to prove things to us. Prove some things what you want me to prove. So the first person said indica Alamo and
Aldi who brought Anwar, matara
for Candolim Robuck use Zilla you know I mean hierarchy summary for Yamaha the hill G. Berta sheduled on where you will note Oh dear to me and Hara talk to your Lord and have him changed the Sahara that we live in look at the deserts there's nothing have him bring down the rain for a couple of months. Let us see the green come from this land turn this land into into the the Garden of Eden let us see that we want that. So the path it is so awesome answer D merb. You heard about Ethany the offer him all these offers and you'd answer the same thing every time.
This is not what he sent me with. So they will say then at least we want to see you
may you have a lot of wealth here. You're very poor. You have nothing ask her Lord to give you a castle and strengthen water and wells. And you will tell them man Have you heard that attorney? This is not what he sent me with.
So they will see any Oh thorough coffee summary will mean a little he got that on his Zilla, Elena keytab and necro. So they told him okay, then may you go to the sky. And Gibreel meet you somewhere in the middle and give you the Quran and bring the Quran with him down you down with you and then tell us that he is Gibreel This is the Quran. They want to see if you want to see it all. He would say Maga maybe heard that, but I thought he doesn't know what he sent me with.
And he would ask them all these things. It goes to the right you'll find all the other requests. They will say no, I'm not I can't do any of that. Then what was he sent with audio southwest.
It's the language he was sent with the language.
It's this miraculous book of language that you that will continue to live on until your multi and that is what he was telling without you. So that was he was sent with a way of life that if we were all to follow and live by will bring prosperity to every single community that it enters. This is what he's bringing out of his soul to Islam. There is no also Musa there is no naka saw that anymore. That's not what he brought us nobody off. He never offered that out of his slot to us. They asked him for it. He said no, I that's not what I was sent with.
It's an interesting point. It's interesting. He was asked to the whole undocumented so that you won't say well, that kind of makes me think the Quran documented when he asked it and he at the end of a coil Subhana Robbie HALCON to Basha or Surah Say Subhan Allah I am only a human message I can't do all this for you. Well, ma'am and I'm saying you may know is just a human who the Allah and Paulo about Allah Who Basha lava Sula, and what causes people not to believe when they were given guidance? See, that's the key word guidance. There's something in this the guidance that exists within our deen and within within Islam is something that if you if we are to live by and follow,
then really there's there is no there is no loss for us. There's no There's no way for us to ever lose.
But people will say about Allah Who by should always Sue. That is how it is Allah sent the Prophet that's a human. They're looking for something grand, they want something that is flashy. So they come to him it is too
much time do I have to have a bit of time left? All right. I have a little time left.
So that doesn't work to become something different. They come up with this with this very smart way to negotiate. I don't know who thought of it but whoever thought of it was really smart. And at that moment, like we got it now we've cornered him let's just let's fix this now let's go with and this once and for all. So they went in they were extremely excited about this moment because now they have the way to corner him and to end this whole problem. So they came to him. And they said yeah, Mohammed
Hezekiah Walker, I don't know and daddy, he was your father doing saying and doing the same things that you are saying? Do you have the Quran? Did he do all this? So prophet is awesome said no, for God. I kinda just Dukkha What about your grandpa, your grandfather, I've been taught him the best of the best in the eyes of everyone who lived at that time. What did he do what you were doing? And they said, Well, no, * Ah, no, we're not even under Hiren
abou Khawaja Duke. So tell us then who's better you or your grandpa?
Now, if he says me,
it's a loss because they're gonna we'll go and tell everybody. Did you hear what Muhammad saying? He is saying that he is better than optimal column now would end any hope of anyone ever listening to him again? And if he says no, he's better than me. So well, you know, he lived the way we're living. Why can't you?
There is no good answer. So what are the answer all your thoughts?
He didn't respond. He heard the question. And he left and they lost their minds.
They lost their minds running after him. No, you have to answer you need to answer Nope. Not answering.
And they because he knows sometimes the best response is no response at all. Because it's Dave it's a question that they have it's a complicated issue that they have just played around with they play with the words that's not how it is. It's not like that you can't say better this is not what it's about.
But for me to go into the details of this is going to be very difficult. So I'll just sometimes you walk down a road of a doc you know this argument will never end you put him at the same problem he got he goes to the king and he tells him You won't be a lady you're here you meet Allah subhana grand slave and he drives death he created both so this king brings into people kills one it says here I killed him and tells the other one you can walk away your life so I let them live. Is this is this is very silly. Wait This I'm talking philosophically you're doing something there's no point of going continuing this argument he leaves it he doesn't continue to say no no king that's not what I
meant. Are you sleeves collar for TV Shamcey mill machine that TV had no motive. Okay, let's let's let me let me play your game then. Allah brings us on every morning from the from the east because it happened before you were born. So it wasn't you. So go ahead bring it from the west if you can control everything. So he sat there quietly. Sometimes the best response is no response but they thought they got him he thought they got him there didn't work. didn't respond.
So they think more are you seeing how much effort they're putting into this? They're spending time all day trying to figure out how do we get him? How do we find some way to work because even though he is outnumbered they know that he has the upper hand because what he's saying is the truth that's how all you have to do just stand by the truth there's really nothing else that's required just stand by it just continue to stand by it no matter what scary you know what are difficult no matter how intimidating that is just to stand by it's all it's all he ever asked you to do supine no doubt. But it's hard sometimes so we don't so they come down with another this time they start to
compromise the to coming any offers or they're compromising so they come and say yeah, Muhammad
Alright, you win. class you will
how about this
we split it somewhere in the middle
we worship your Allah alone for a year. And then you do it only for our snot for a year and we'll start with yours. We'll start with your with your Lord we'll do we'll be Muslims first. All right, we don't have to be we'll just kind of alternate year this year that your year and our you see, give and take here. Come on, Mohamed, let's get it let's end this problem and bite this find some way out he just laughs What are you talking about? Again, he could have played this dirty. All right. Start with my here. Start with his ear. He gets as many people Muslim as possible and then the other year comes up. No.
Not doing it. That's that's not always done. And the Quran actually came and said that you all know the surah Yeah, are you Hulka
taboo don't want to be doing what I don't matter to what I ultimately doing
while you're doing the anthem of identity and tolerance and one surah six six verses explain two things to have some of the most important concepts of human existence explain the six verses identity and tolerance identity being very clear.
Being very very clear. Well and tomorrow I'll be doing what an hour but we are not the same. I worship something different than you do. And you want something different than I do. We are not the same, but that's okay. Look, I'm Dino calm. Will you did you have a religion and I have one no problem. Yeah, you will curfew. Calling them with respect. Au Heiser is a word in Arabic That means respect. You don't say yeah, you hurt and then go and say something rude. We are different than me. But I have respect for you have your faith I have mine. But we're different. Sometimes if identity is too strong, we lose tolerance. And sometimes if tolerance is too strong, you use identity but you
can get that right balance like he did on it yourself. There's only this Stewart explains We're fine. We're different, but we can coexist. No, I will not worship your Lord and I don't want you based on what you explained to me to do worship my neither either accept Islam fully or we stay different in the way that we worship. He refused on a Salah.
So they come back again.
This time is the final offer.
They're exhausted and they're they're bankrupt. They have nothing left. And so you start to assume you're sitting there you know swatting into like you're watching a tennis game you just swapping them swatting them one after the other nope, nope. None of that. I have one offer and one offer only you will accept or you can want it there's the door offer another offer Nope. But then this one came along. This offer was actually quite
quite juicy. I liked this one. He came they came to me said Yeah, Mohamed
you have one you beat us. When? Look man no luck. We're going to accept your faith and your teachings.
What I can learn buddy and your Julissa sir operation ma VD him
well, I am buddy and you sell well.
Being early Ibrahim
What are in us
for federal fee at Marina
Bay in an hour, but you know,
we accept but we can't You can't have the nobles with the slaves.
It doesn't work where the the leaders of Christ the descendants of Ibrahim Ismail, the Hebrews sat on set with a bunch of people who don't even know where they came from. So we'll accept the stand but wherever we meet, just just make the meetings exclusive. You'll meet with them we're not saying not to meet with them. Don't Don't Don't say that to get the Kenyan Muslims. But you can't We can't be with them in the same place. We got to be seen in the same meeting. We can't sit down listen to you sitting like this. And you know be in Ireland. So hey, but Amar and Ian yesterday and then right there beside them is going to be able to fit in and have a book today and occupy now that doesn't
work. You can say oh my god, I have a crush. She's gonna sit with the Isolate the room even if you don't even know where this guy comes from? He was a slave until yesterday. But he doesn't have he is gonna sit with Abu Sufyan.
Right? It was over literally when this offer came in, it's over, it's done. Or you start to us as being told you will find we succumb you have a better narrative, you have stronger language, you are much more fixed on your way. You're one of us. So we're happy with that you're our son, your brother, you know, whatever you do is fine. They start to listen maybe to
Robbie, I said so they start to think about it. Yeah, you're right. If he makes it, then you're we're all good. But you can't have us all sitting together. It's ridiculous.
the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, by the way.
He didn't say yes, obviously.
But he didn't say no, immediately.
He thought about it. He's like, is there some way for me to play this?
That would work? Would it be okay for us just to have separate meetings? Maybe it's better for them? Maybe first of all, even below a modern alien and all these people is better if they're in their own meeting. People like them. They can feel more comfortable instead of sitting with all these leaders and elders. Maybe
when I talk to the lady and the owner of boom bill of Audacity Well, I see you really do and Elijah malaika and he said to him and shake well ma'am and he said Becca Ali him shaitan but apologia whom fat Hakuna mean avoid the mean was there enough soccer malady you know you're the owner of don't belong to Well, I see you read when I watch what I do I NACA and whom to read Xena tell hieratic duniya wanna talk?
I'm an FFL now called Dahu and they Karina whateva who work on a model who photo PA. And then all the stories of new came down like rain
when they tell you how they said, Oh no, I don't mean Aleca whatever I can or the loon
so no one was saying hey Saba, whom Allah Allah wrote below to show rune warmer and he didn't mean
in other Iona and he thought he didn't live
in the hula Cora be him when I can eat a lot from home and that genuine, I will never get rid of them. I will never remove them. I will never ask them to sit in a different place and from a different door, be treated differently than others just because they are.
This is what he preached how to use salatu salam and the practice and is what the deen is based on? The answer was no, the answer was a big no, of course not. You accept Islam, then Sohaib is your brother in law, he's your brother, and I'm not as your brother. And these are all your brothers and sisters. And if you don't like that, then you can leave. There's the door go away. Bye bye.
You will think the prophit is taught to assemble sale rates for the first six months we'll do that. And then we'll teach them open their hearts. No, we entered this correctly from the beginning or we don't enter this at all.
Or understanding that either we do this right from from day one from the first moment, or we don't do it at all.
He proved he wasn't too. He wasn't proud at least. Because later on after finding when they accepted Islam the way he wants it to accept he gets them to give them all the money correct or not. He just gave them money. When they accepted Islam as much as he had he went on with nothing because he didn't care about money.
They had he understood it wrong. It has nothing to do with money or status or none of that is actually you understanding that when you say Allah, Allah and Allah, that everyone is in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala equal servants. And whatever advantage or leverage you have over others is just a gift Allah gave you that you're going to use to serve them with not to ask for them to sit somewhere else, or to be removed.
This was the offer he was given to us to them. And I always thought Yanni, the Sierra would have been so different. He probably maybe he would have lived long enough to his Salah to to see Islam spread everywhere if he just took in that taken that offer, but it was wrong. So it doesn't matter. So there's no point of me even saying any of this stuff, because it was wrong. To think that way was wrong. He didn't think that way it was him he just wasn't sure. Should I say no right away. Because it's a pretty good offer. Just an issue of
of separation. Maybe a little bit of racism, maybe a lot of racism. Imagine he didn't do that Alia salatu salam think how much racism we have within Muslims communities today. Think about it. Right here right now. Think about it. How much racism sexism, tribalism, nationalism exists amongst Muslims today. Now imagine if he accepted that at the beginning.
This is what we're stuck with. But he never compromised that one thing ever, never, not once. He never accepted for that being an option and because later on many, many years later, many years later, Agosto Theon walks by Sahib and Billa and Amar, he hadn't accepted Islam yet, but this isn't Medina. So Sohaib says Rama we don't know what Allah He ma i met. So you follow Mussolini and Ophelia kabhi Ida Illa hikma, Amanda, unfortunately, not all the enemies of Allah were taken out when they should have been
in this thing so we can hear. So Bucha was upset
for kala Maya ion battery, and you can lemme say you do Quraysh Hakka
Oka said you shouldn't be speaking to the leader of courage like that. So he goes to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam ala Rasulillah pouca and maybe Sophia and
so the portfolio size as it was the following God I adore I like Bob to home
made Did you upset them when you objected to this?
For Carla every corner of the home and tekun out of the home, adopt Allah. If you had said something that bothered them, so Haven Bilal Ahmed with they said that they may tell you that you have upset Allah subhanaw taala
referred to na Himeji running to them for call to equity. Oh Bob to come. Oh, my brothers Did I upset you when I said that? For call for calling Hamdulillah I will never say that. Again. It was just a concept, small concept. Suddenly, it was with you after 20 years of fighting as you're going to give status over these people. They can say whatever they want. They can make whatever mistakes they want. They've earned it at this point. Because he never compromise on a lot.
To me, that's probably the most beautiful part of this whole negotiation period
is when he was offered full submission of everyone in Makkah. Everyone was going to have to slam because once the lead in Laos and Abu Jamal except that's it
Everyone's gonna follow this. It's done. It's a done deal. All he had to do was just say, I will segregate meetings. I will have you meet on Thursday and you guys meet on Friday. And when people sit I'll have the elders sit up front and the rest can sit right behind them in the in the lines after them no, legally will know her. Well, Quran if he will stand behind me are the ones who have the most knowledge who have learned the most Quran who have spent as much as enough time or more time with me learning and standing by me.
Not with it's not based on what you inherited from your father's how much money you have, or what name how many letters there are after your name or before it.
And this is something he taught them earlier. So to see them in the Quran. You got this all the little, all the students that have the story of Noah, you'll find that little pipe because that's what was told. He was told the same thing. No, we're good. Just get rid of these people, man Urraca Teva, aka Illa Latina whom Allah Zerona by the array. When we look at the people who follow, you know, we see the worst of the worst. How do you wish to follow you, you're saying the right things, but look at the people who follow you know, sorry, sorry, it doesn't work like that. Either you accept equality or you don't, or they were anti racist, anti racism, anti
supremacism or not. And they weren't at that point. Those accepted the standard leader had to become, and I'm telling you look at where we are right now, even though he did what he did out of his thoughts. And back then imagine if you didn't just imagine if you didn't, would have been a completely different story to tell.
That kind of son does not work anymore.
So that sums up the negotiation period. To a certain extent, there are a few more points I'll bring up in Sharla, the next couple of deep Halaqaat. But that's basically what the what they did. When you think about it, after I told you these stories, you're under the impression that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is sitting up higher, and everyone's coming, begging him for some compromise, right? That's what it sounds like, please just give us anything. And he offered nothing on your side. He refused to compromise any of his ideals, none of his morals and ethics, none of the fundamentals of Islam, you would think and imagine that he had a great, he's playing a great hand.
Right? You have the better hand here. So if he was trying to get something from you, because you're being he's not? Or is he say I got confused when I was a kid? Did he have the upper hand? Well, it sounds like he has the upper hand. I'm saying when I heard these stories as a kid. And then when I read and read the actual text, it seemed like he somehow had the upper hand every single time. But then you look at the rest of the stories. He didn't. He was still on a surface and being physically persecuted during these stories. His daughters were
his companions. All of them were when these stories happened when they were negotiating, B dad was still under the boulder.
He was still lying under the boulder saying I hadn't heard when these stories were happening. You asked it was just killed the other day he is familiar when these stories were happening? Well, it's almost a schizophrenic effect. I can't figure it out. How is this working? How is he so how is he not accepting, when you're weak, you accept you accept the deal, you take a plea, whatever that works to give you strength he never did.
He stood his ground. And either you accepted Islam fully the way I teach it, or I don't need you. And I don't care. Because either is done right or is not done at all.
And you have to admire that. You just have to admire the strength that that requires the dedication. He was relentless, and he stood out to us and you could not stop him and you could not change his mind. He could not get him to compromise any of his ideals. It is frustrating. Sometimes, if you're on the other side, it's very frustrating. But it's also worthy of lessons. It's worthy for us to learn from him. It is thought to him once he knew what was right. Nothing you could say or do whatever change that. You could never get him to do something you could never get him to compromise ever because he knew what he was saying and doing was the right thing. Now I ask you, do you have
the same relationship with your dean? Or not? Do you know that what you're doing is the right thing. You believe in the right things, you're doing the right thing. So no one can ever get you to stop doing it?
Or are you someone who will succumb to pressure if it's heavy enough? Because you're unsure?
Not Himani sought to so not the Sahaba
just seemed like you had the upper hand and they kept on offering and he kept on refusing. And you're gonna see next time, they're gonna go back to worse persecution. I'm going to tell you tell us some ugly stories. Because they got so frustrated with him. It started with them. They lashed out and took it out physically on everybody so bad that the product is not the same heart to actually send some people outside of the continent.
You're gonna leave Asia and go to a different continent altogether, because that's how bad it got.
You think maybe at some point you thought
to himself, I should have accepted that off. No, no, it was wrong. It would have been wrong. It's all you need to know. In any given example in your life all you have to ask yourself the following question. What's the right thing to do? Once you identify it?
You good? Don't feel bad. Don't regret anything. Don't think twice. Don't look back. Don't ask questions don't come for a fact to just do it. Once you're able to identify that which is right as he did thriller Hollywood syndrome during this very interesting period of his life. I hope that was beneficial Subhanak Allahumma Byham decrescendo learn, to still have to go to war so Allah who I'd say deny Muhammad anyway early use it as main. It will see you in sha Allah next week inshallah. santosha Baraka, Luffy communicable here
