Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa Sallim wa Barik I'm gonna be you know, have you been on Muhammad in early he your Sufi regimen and you know that

00:00:12--> 00:00:17

you continue with sha Allah with the CRO of the prophets of Allah Allah He was telling him from where we left off last week.

00:00:19--> 00:00:47

Last week I talked about an interesting period during the Mechi time of the Prophet audio Salatu Salam is prophecy. I mean, the first 13 years, and we're still in that part of it. And it's called the negotiation period. It's a period where we're Quraysh had tried persecution to the best of their ability. And it didn't work. The number of Muslims were still increasing, not how he would like it, his thought was that I'm nor to his side, nor to the satisfaction of the sahaba. However,

00:00:48--> 00:01:23

they thought that maybe they could get him to compromise, maybe they could figure out some middle ground where everyone could be happy. And of course, they offered him many things out of your slot to sit at him and he and you refuse them are examples of the offered a year for us a year for you or any get rid of the poor people and they move them away. And we will sit with you because we don't sit with people who are lesser than us and stuff like that. And they asked him for physical miracles or extra ordinary phenomenons in order for their phenomena in order for them to actually accept and they made all these claims and offers and requests in the proper audio Saddam's shut them all down

00:01:23--> 00:02:00

and said no, no, he wasn't trying to be difficult. So Allah he's like we said them, he just adhered to his to his ethical and moral code and to the way of life that he had brought forward and he was not going to going to compromise any of the fundamentals. However, he did make an offer himself out of his Salatu was Salam was the offer that I have up on the on the screen, when they had made all these offers and spoke several times and tried everything. So he wanted to extend his hand Ali's thought was to ram to Croatia in order to maybe achieve something with them. So the offer he made was the following. He said to one of the leaders of Clay said Necochea hit to feed Gary Abdullah

00:02:00--> 00:02:05

hypnotoad and one of the older elders of Quraysh. And they had

00:02:07--> 00:02:41

they had put together a treaty or an agreement at some point during the profit audio sort of sums younger years when he was on 60 or 70. I talked about that way at the beginning, when I was talking about the years prior to his prophecy. They had come together the people of Mecca or people of Croatia, and they agreed that they will not let anyone in the city starve. That was their that was their basic basic idea that we would not allow people go hungry. If someone was too poor to take care of themselves financially, they would be assigned to one of the elders have to take care of them and help them find a job and help help them take care of themselves. There's a lot of argument

00:02:41--> 00:03:19

that was something that was you know, looked at in a very positive way the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam attended it and he says indeed I haven't attended the treaty or the agreement in the in the house and I'm delighted to shut down that's what happened in his house. Mal humbly and be an elite metal hippo and Nelly be here more on neon. I mean, I would I would not die and he substituted for anything in the world. I'm so proud that I attended that treaty and I was a part of it and I signed on it. And I participated in it it was a great thing that the people of Mecca did, and I wouldn't I wouldn't give it up for the world. What I will do a to is where he kind of makes the extensive

00:03:19--> 00:03:44

Zandile your swatches and we will do a two in a mystery even Islamia job you will follow me here while him while you're selling vehicles you are an inspiration would call me today to something similar. Now that I'm a prophet and I have my followers but if you want to call me just something like that today, where we will we would agree on select Allow him to stop harming our relatives while he still wanted to take care of our neighbors. I would say yes,

00:03:45--> 00:04:00

you're negotiating they're off making offers I just want to essentially make that offer let's come together and agree on not harming one another on families not quarreling amongst each other on fathers and sons not fighting and mistreating one another how about we come together and do that of course of course correlation

00:04:01--> 00:04:11

declined but he did make an offer some Allah honey Selim himself at the end of this negotiation period that didn't really any bring anything out. So what else what I should do?

00:04:13--> 00:04:39

Price went back to what they were doing before. So they went back to prosecution again. Once they couldn't get anything out of the money aside to sell. It wouldn't be a six month period that they tried to negotiate with the broth Alia started and tried to maybe get him to to compromise some of his fundamentals and he refused to sell. And then he made his offer and they refused that they went back to what they were doing before. And this time they came down much more

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

brutally may I say.

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

And they focused on women specifically. And if you go to the bookstore, see Legos find all these names of ladies who were persecuted both both physically and socially during this period during this time, and I put a couple of names in Neeraj of the Allahu anha and oh bass and

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

In the media, and almost sure like the Allahu Allahu Anhu now Jemaine y'all have separate stories is a knee Iran was a was a lady who was a slave own Bible Jehovah and he would beat her and he beat her so badly Allahu Allah that she lost her sight. Temporarily. She lost his eye for a couple of years you couldn't see anymore. He had hit her so hard that she she lost her sight. She didn't leave Islam she stayed she she held on to her to her Deen, but it was only a couple of years later that she was she was able to see again and she never she never gained her full eyesight back or the Allahu anha OMA Shrike was a lady who was from Mecca. As far as most of the historians are concerned, she was

00:05:40--> 00:06:12

from Mecca, she accepted Islam, and she would go and she would speak to the ladies of Quraysh. And she started to get an audience and people started to listen to her. So her tribe and the people of color and one of the elders of Christ said if it wasn't for your tribe, I would have I would have killed you or something to that, to that. So her tribe to try and silence her, took her and put her on a camel and sent her into the middle of the desert. He took the tighter up and left her there for two or three days, till she almost died of Ebola. But she didn't. He was able to do break whatever they had taught her up with and make her way back.

00:06:13--> 00:06:51

And I think the fact that they focused on ladies during this period, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam would come up with his initiative that we'll talk about in a few in a few moments. But examples of other people who are Yanni were missing a beat Alibaba. Bilal was. I've already told the story what happened to him previously, but they made it so difficult for Bilal, that are the law one robocall started to do something and he was known for this was one of the issues that will occur was famous for during this period, he began to use his wealth to buy slaves, Muslim slaves out of slavery and freedom. And the first four or five names on the screen, he all bought out he bought it was a nice

00:06:51--> 00:07:20

add on of the Allahu anha. And then the idea no more bass and beat Alibaba. He had bought them out of slavery and freedom for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. The story of benign is interesting because you may have been cut off who owned that at the time. Yeah, and he had had leveled up his persecution and torture. It's so high to the point that be that homeless died. He almost killed him. And when they saw that he got obsessed, so he went to Romania. And he told him, I want to I want to buy Bilal from you

00:07:22--> 00:07:28

for call Allah, I won't I won't sell him to you for codon streaming.

00:07:29--> 00:07:31

And one of the narrations being the IETF

00:07:33--> 00:07:37

I'll take him from you for 100,000 Get on for the Heiko Omiya

00:07:38--> 00:07:41

so many laughs Oh god I'd be I took I sell you.

00:07:43--> 00:08:15

So the Assam limiter. Allah Allah He know upon if he elfin. Let me ask you, if he gave me 1000 I would have sold him. So Buchan laughed upon when OpenHAB Tim in the alpha l FlashArray. To whom IK and if you ask me for a million I would have bought him out. So you want to know the Allahu Allahu Allah. And our Bob he is one of the people who witnessed witnessed this transaction for Carl. And if you rewind it and play iba in a very nice generation onward we'll take a look. Say you Duna Atticus at dinner

00:08:16--> 00:08:33

one of our Lords just fried another one of our Lord's beat out it'll be hola on hola hola. And this became the the anthems that people would use about going to the La vida we bought me out and he freed him for the sake of Allah Subhanallah and that was our pubs. Any witness statement of of that transaction.

00:08:35--> 00:08:41

Most likely have been oh my god Allah who I know one of the early people to accept Islam is from Benny Abdullah.

00:08:43--> 00:08:58

The Prophet Alia Santos and from many abdomen F. And Mossad was from Benny AB de dar. And Mossad was extremely wealthy, Muslim Muslim in a lot of money. His parents were very, very wealthy. And he was described by many of the aisles I've got America and I hadn't.

00:08:59--> 00:09:40

I said Allah Merton. Well, for Latin, what else? Yeah, but Asian men Musab. No one wore a better clothing. No one smelled better. No one. No one had a better life. No one looked better and more chic than most I've ever been, oh my God, to the point where if you go and you study some of the books in history, they talked about the fact that they could smell his perfume from a couple of blocks away when he was coming down the road, or the hola Hawaiian, a very good looking guy. One of those eligible bachelors at the time, very wealthy. When he accepted Islam, his mother got so upset that she actually she imprisoned him in their own home. And she had people come and beat him. And

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

for three years, for three years of most of his life, he was not allowed to walk free. Some narration say that he would eat we would run out of the house, you would leave the house in the middle of the night and go sit down and come and spend some time there learning and then come back before the morning for his mother woke up. But literally he was imprisoned by his own family.

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

After three years of them doing that he wouldn't change his mind or the Allahu Akbar. So I'm not gonna say that his mother fine let him go

00:10:08--> 00:10:50

and stripped him from everything he owned, or the narration says that he just broke loose and left. But when he did, or the Allahu anhu, he left with nothing. He left with nothing at all. And he would pass away extremely, extremely poor. The point when he when he died, they didn't have a piece of cloth big enough to cover his whole body. We'll talk about that, because with your head, they could not cover his his whole body. They didn't have anything. So they had to take leaves of a large tree and cover his feet or the law on him because he had nothing he owned nothing. He didn't own anything. of Allahu Anhu Allah and the Prophet Allah Sato says would say Nakajima at Masada Mayor LA

00:10:50--> 00:11:10

who validate your claim and he was the and he will aka Tanaka Kula who visa Belinda. I saw him and he had two parents who took care of him, they would feed him and close him and treat him in the best way possible. He was extremely spoiled. And then he left all of that for the sake of Allah. Allah Allahu Anhu

00:11:11--> 00:11:52

Sahaba throughout their lives would always remember Musab always speak about Musab and say no, we all ended up doing pretty well. Eventually, those who lived past the Prophet Alia sought to extend his time when the Prophet is said and passed away who lived a couple of years later. They did well. They found some wealth, they own the house, maybe maybe they're able to get married or have some kids. Very simple stuff. But they would look back and say but Musa B got nothing out of this. Most likely what was was literally the standard that they all held themselves to. Most I've had everything left at all and died with nothing in did it yeah and he strictly for the sake of Allah

00:11:52--> 00:11:56

Subhan Allah they will always compare themselves to Muslim. Now the Allahu Allahu Allah.

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

He didn't say he didn't allow us.

00:12:00--> 00:12:39

His father was to eat and then also been while his father was the brother of Umrah, menos. And aside, he didn't ask them and right away, it was one of the greats and the nobles of Makkah, extremely wealthy and extremely powerful. And when Khalid accepted Islam, his father took everything from him, his father, and he tried, he sent people to try and kill him. He literally tried to destroy her and hide under the law, one who was someone who accepted Islam early on, and he literally was stripped of everything. And he refused at any point, during all of that, to say he didn't say anything to his father, or the law when it was it was an old story in Mecca, the hunted,

00:12:39--> 00:13:05

his father has said horrible things to him, treated him horribly and has never said a word, not one word, and you can see how he's gonna be one of the people who actually leave. It gets so bad for him they have to leave, even though he is one of the sons of the most noble families of courage inside and then also when you're talking about when unnecessary, that is very heavy walking around Arabia with that you would be extremely respected. But his father just could not accept the fact that he accepted Islam

00:13:06--> 00:13:23

and tried to kill him. And Khalid would refuse to say anything back. He never said a word back. When he got really bad, he had to leave and his father actually passed away while he was away. And he cried, and it hurt him or the Allahu anha. The interesting thing is he didn't come back. Many, many, many years later.

00:13:24--> 00:13:35

You're talking something close to 15 years later, you would come back to me to Medina, at this point, the prophet audience wasn't already in Medina, he would come back he had married and he had a few children.

00:13:37--> 00:14:12

And one of his daughters had grown up far away and be seen here, as we'll talk about soon. She didn't speak Arabic. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam would spend time taking care of these people, those who came back from came back from Barbados, especially those who had very, very strong family names, and a lot of heritage, the lust for the sake of Allah Subhanallah came back with almost nothing. He's coming back. He's a foreigner, she and his daughter doesn't even speak Arabic. A similar problem that many of us may have today. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam and unknown story would would was given it was gifted a piece of clothing. So it would say you Tony B O Muhammad,

00:14:12--> 00:14:44

which is Harley that Mercedes and also his daughter, he called it that was her nickname. So they brought her and decided that was the first game for CASA he gave it to her to get to where and he would tell her had he and he Cena. It's a word in the scene in language that mean is beautiful. He would speak to her in the language that she understood because he didn't start Arabic. The whole room was started this young lady girl she was two years older. So she will say if I couldn't do it, I will be hurt. I mean Naboo I would jump on the Prophet Ali's shoulders and I would only poke kind of poke at him and he had a small mole on his back out of your soul to a son called cut them and do

00:14:44--> 00:14:50

a short play with it for her to do was sitting there and he is terrified at what he's seeing. What are you doing?

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

He doesn't stop doing it. Get off the ice lamda lever, let her let her do what she needs. But we'll be 15 years before he would come

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

Back again, harder than saying the last say they'll follow Him and obey the law the no one name, but how to hire for her story is that his mother, when he accepted Islam, she she hired people to tie him up and to beat him with sticks.

00:15:16--> 00:15:45

And to pull him around Mecca, curse cursing him and hitting him. She would walk walk with them. Like she would literally go around MCO with Paula on a donkey tied up being hit by people she had hired to do so cursing him and saying him the worst things. Take the worst things about him. filecoin I totally do either you or you will not respond to what's being said to you for a call on US law. Do you know who you are and her who Angelique you'll find that in the books of history.

00:15:47--> 00:15:51

Many people will say no, he he that he can't. Apparently his religion doesn't allow him to say anything back to his mother.

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

The story is

00:15:58--> 00:16:30

far from what we have our experiences I've been if anything, if you ever get yelled or yelled at by your parents is where the opposite is true. A prayer that you Mr. Quran pays that you didn't spend time memorizing or a good deed that you were supposed to do and you didn't. The experience of the Sahaba was so different than ours. Because the hobbit had to accept Islam despite their parents hating it, despite their parents trying to force them not to do it. But they did it anyway, is that Allah subhanaw taala says we will say no in the center bydd he

00:16:31--> 00:16:45

said Cerna another pillar another listener will injure her darker, and two, she can be malaise. Sarah can be here in Fallout Oklahoma was our Hebrew humor feed duniya roof.

00:16:46--> 00:17:00

Or indeed we have asked the human being to be the best seeking he or she can possibly be with their parents. And if their parents try and force them to leave the way of Allah subhanaw taala the school priesthood, then that's the only thing you say no to.

00:17:01--> 00:17:11

But still, if they continue to do that, you still you're obligated or saw, hey, boom, I've had dunya model for you're obligated to be the best companion you can be for them within your lives.

00:17:12--> 00:17:22

Imagine the blessing that we all live. All of us, myself included. We grew up with parents who tried to make us good Muslims. If anything, they got upset when we weren't being good Muslims.

00:17:23--> 00:17:28

And also Hobbit experience was the was was was exactly the opposite of that it was the opposite.

00:17:30--> 00:17:59

So there's a lot for us to be thankful for. And there's a lot for us to think about when it comes to these things. But I have held on to his Deen yet to lose contact with his mother for many years, because he had to leave and go spend his time with the Prophet it is so obvious and didn't sleep at home anymore. You couldn't go back home. Hunting and saving us couldn't go back home yet they slept in who comes home, they don't have a house anymore. They went to Medina and it wasn't for the fact that profit out of your thoughts and unperformed them and put two people together they will have nowhere to live. And they did it for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. They held on that for the

00:17:59--> 00:18:08

sake of Allah. But what is required of us is so different, so much easier. So much more simple. What's required of us.

00:18:09--> 00:18:22

If anything, if you'd be Muslim, you're a star in your own family. Everyone respects you, everyone loves you. Everyone comes to you for advice later on in life. They use you as a standard for all your, all your siblings and your cousins, and everyone who knows you

00:18:23--> 00:19:01

are actually loved more. It's with this whole concept that, you know, teenagers want to, you know, stick it to demand and rebelled to their parents. This is actually an untrue, this will lie it is untrue. This is something that we that we made up in the last maybe 80 to 100 years. This is how we've defined being a teenager in the West. But traditionally, that's never been the thing. Traditionally, sons have always aspired to be like their fathers have always aspired to be the best they can be within their families to bring the families together to exist happily within their families. Because it is that you have to end as you grew up, you have to rebel, I don't know. Let

00:19:01--> 00:19:08

them rebel, it's not your heritage. As a Muslim is not your heritage is not your legacy. You don't carry any of that it's on your blood.

00:19:10--> 00:19:43

The only time to do it. This is this example here. If somehow and your family you have a parent who doesn't want you to be a Muslim, who's trying to get you to perform cool for then you rebel, but to rebel, when your parents are asking you to do the right thing. There's no sense in that. They're telling you to study to be the best, the most knowledgeable person you can be to be the best Muslim you can be to achieve the most you can achieve and you're betting against that. That's the senseless where's the logic in that? Why would you rebel against that? Rebel when it's worth it?

00:19:44--> 00:19:48

When they're telling you something wrong? Not when they're telling you something right.

00:19:49--> 00:19:51

You can't rebel just for the sake of rebelling.

00:19:54--> 00:19:55

I'm motivated Yes, sir.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

Whom, prior to the negotiation period last both pair

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


00:20:01--> 00:20:04

Well Jehovah was torturing them both parents died.

00:20:05--> 00:20:32

Imagine this young man brought the eyes on loved Amma. If you if you if you study the Sunnah you'll find that the Prophet Alia Saudi had had a soft spot for a number of Sahaba he loved and might have been yesterday because of what Mr. Went through, and they would beat him so badly. And they would tell him you say this or say that say something rude about the Prophet Allah You're such as I'm curse, oh, your Lord say something, say something that you shouldn't say. And my mother would get so tired sometimes.

00:20:33--> 00:21:12

For being beaten for hours, he would say whatever they want you to leave him alone. And when they left him alone, he would go to the prophit Assad to say yes to Allah hella karma, right I've destroyed whatever good things I've done in my life. polemaster not what happened for Cadell duty buena nee wild reboot any aku will occur our Qaeda they hit me until I and they asked me to say things I shouldn't say for two years with Allah and then at one point I just got I got tired and I said something called a Amal key for Taiji to callback. How do you find your your heart among for call in number Imani? Allah so Allah my heart is filled with Eman taka in, do vote. They do it

00:21:12--> 00:21:13


00:21:14--> 00:21:31

You do it again. And that sort of thing. And it was revealed and within its mind Kathrada bIllahi min by the EMA and he Illa Mn O Cray were called boo moto my enum Bill Eman when I can meet inshallah Hi Bill gouffre Isadora Valley him GlobalMeet Allah.

00:21:32--> 00:21:51

They're mistaken the ones who who lose their faith after Allah subhana grandslam Iman, except those who are forced to say things they don't want to say, but their hearts are filled with Imen then they can go ahead and do this fine. So they're given. They were given any way out, say what you need to say to get out of this. And that's why being out is so impressive.

00:21:52--> 00:21:55

That's why it's so impressive, because he never did it.

00:21:56--> 00:22:33

They were given this rasa this exception here. If you need to, you say what you need. Don't Don't worry about it. They tell you a curse Muhammad, go ahead. As long as your heart is filled, man, you can say what you want. Build, I never did it. biller challenge them every time. That's why they were so up. They got upset. You see, Quraysh is bankrupt. They have nothing. Anyone who resorts to violence is bankrupt. Anyone who uses violence to deal with the situation is bankrupt. They have nothing courageous had they had nothing. They had no ideas. They had no upper hand they were negotiating with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, as I said last time, to the point where you felt

00:22:33--> 00:23:14

that he had the upper hand and he did have the upper hand because he had the rich idea. He had the faithful followers, they believed in what they did. The early Muslims, they love this. They love the Quran. They loved the Prophet, they loved Allah, they wanted to be Muslim. They enjoyed it. It was it was fruitful. It was rich. Koresh had nothing. So they resort to violence. Those who are bankrupt use violence. Those who aren't never use violence, you will never respond to an idea with violence. You never do. It's not how it's done. Is this wrong? It's just wrong. He never did it. Either. You salatu salam, it was his calmness and the Congress of the Sahaba and the steadfastness that they had

00:23:15--> 00:23:18

on their idea that literally drove Christ crazy.

00:23:20--> 00:23:30

It was so difficult for me to understand. How could you love something so much? They would ask that question. Why? Why are they so? Why

00:23:32--> 00:23:44

would the reason except that Islam was one of was he did the same thing. He had a young slaved it was a girl and anyone who would be would persecute her to leave Islam and she wouldn't. He would wonder why is Why is she doing this?

00:23:45--> 00:23:46

Why are you Why do you care?

00:23:48--> 00:24:22

Why are you holding on to this? What is Mohammed offering you? Nothing? It's not like you're accepting Islam and you're becoming wealthy or anything? Well, then why do you why are you holding on to this idea so badly, they couldn't understand it and everyone who doesn't and who has never tasted the beauty sweet nectar of iman. The beauty of loving Allah and loving his prophet so I said, I'm reading the Quran will never understand what you're saying. They can't they don't understand why it is that you're holding on to this way of life. And why you won't give up being a Muslim and why you won't give up on your ethics and morals. They don't understand it because they're just they're

00:24:22--> 00:24:39

mosquito Allah and they're miskeen. But do they know if they knew better they wouldn't have done this. If they had experienced for one moment in their lives. The love of Mohamed Salah is and what that meant who he was, they would never do this but they didn't. They're the ones who are

00:24:40--> 00:24:59

they're the poor ones. It's not the Sahaba it's not about how many dollars it doesn't mean anything. Money means nothing it goes in it comes in life as people who are older and age how many times they've had and not had money in life. It just it's a roller coaster nothing is ever stable. But if you are able to find it

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

You love, that means something to you

00:25:04--> 00:25:35

a way of life a thought that is so powerful and so meaningful, you'll never give it up. Because it's permanent. It doesn't go anywhere. The moment you understand, you start really connecting with the Quran and enters your heart. That's it. Nothing can take that away from you. And you will never give it up for anything. There's nothing in the world that could be offered to you that you will find more valuable. Well, I tell you this and I, and I wish I could I could get somehow get that into your your heart. Yeah, well, I for me, I mean,

00:25:37--> 00:26:09

I remember when I was younger, I was maybe 13. Or I was 1313. And a bit well, I nothing is worth anything. I would give up everything. Allah He literally everything. What do you want to take, you can take MediCal to take my medical career, take it all, wealth, take everything. The only valuable thing that I have in my life is the book of Allah subhanaw taala. Well, lucky, there's nothing else, I swear to you, there is nothing else that is even in the same universe. Comparable to having the Quran will like it, there's nothing.

00:26:10--> 00:26:21

Everything else is just it's what it is what it is. If you if you have a means to make a bit of money, good, you're able to be by your family is great. But nothing is like the Quran, Allah had nothing.

00:26:22--> 00:26:39

And that's something I wished you I hope, I hope one day you experience because they experienced this. They felt it, you could never, you could never move them away from their belief, cuz I look at these names. And Nadia, we don't even know her name. Wallahi we don't know her name.

00:26:40--> 00:26:49

We have no idea where she comes from. We have no other stories for her. Just a very simple lady with a simple background and a simple upbringing.

00:26:50--> 00:27:28

Who lived your life as a slave and then one day, she heard the Prophet sallallahu Sallam speak and explain things. And he entered her heart and she found beauty. And she found love that she didn't find anywhere else. So she's not going to give that up. You can do what you want you What are you going to take away, there's nothing that you can take away from her. Because she has it all inside, you're just stacking the idea here. When you have what you need on the inside, there's nothing that can harm you on the outside, on the outside, just trying to do your best. Just try it your best. But you're you found what you need to find. You're lost and you know you're lost. Now you know exactly

00:27:28--> 00:27:47

where you want to be and where where you are right now. That I believe is the missing link in the life of Muslims. It's our missing link. We don't feel like that anymore. You don't feel like that anymore. Just just be blunt, and you're open about it most. We don't raise our kids. So they feel like that we don't feel like that's

00:27:48--> 00:28:10

you cannot hold on to Islam. You can't hold on to this. If you don't feel like that, that you have the most valuable thing that exists within this universe. You already have it. People are looking and looking for more and more trying to find things that they want. You've already found it. You own you have it. You need to look no longer.

00:28:12--> 00:28:20

And that's why these people were the way they were and stood by their thoughts the way that you did. I'll be Allah who I know his name.

00:28:22--> 00:28:35

During this period, very interesting story happened. The Prophet sallallahu sallam was banned from praying in front of the cop, but he wasn't allowed. So he would pray in his harsh

00:28:36--> 00:29:13

Arabic homes usually have because back then backyards, they didn't really have backyards. What they would do in homes in Damascus have this where you have the house and then you have a walled area. It's like a fence but it's a wall where you can sit outside. And it's usually it's no, it's usually they have water out there or fountain or something like that. But the broad valley is such a small backyard and is walled up at night. So he wouldn't wake up his family inside the house. He would go outside, get a little more solid outside, and he would pray his family and outside, stand outside and read the Quran.

00:29:16--> 00:29:17

And one day

00:29:19--> 00:29:22

three people ran into each other.

00:29:23--> 00:29:28

Standing behind the wall of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam in between the bushes.

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

Imagine this. Imagine it's one o'clock at night the profiler you're starting to have cinema standing in his backyard and he's eating from the corner me so denial.

00:29:39--> 00:29:44

He reciting the book of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada would be nudging me to do so many

00:29:46--> 00:29:52

karoun where he didn't tell dunya Metalla to fool her in Allah Allah Fudo Rahim is reading

00:29:54--> 00:29:56

and Abuja Hall is standing in the bushes.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

He has positioned himself in a way where he is

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

is not seen. Because he wants to hear what the prophets I said they're missing. And as he's positioning himself

00:30:07--> 00:30:10

and it's dark, he bumps into another human being.

00:30:11--> 00:30:13

It looks and it's apostrophe on

00:30:15--> 00:30:27

and as they are whispering What are you doing here? What are you doing here? They bump into it honestly been short like, and all three of them find themselves standing right outside the wall of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, his house.

00:30:28--> 00:30:39

And they ask each other and they leave immediately interesting. What were you doing there? What am I what was I doing? What were you doing there? And everyone's asking the same question What were you doing there? Wallahi let Iran Hakuna

00:30:42--> 00:30:58

fina and and her whom? Don't miss Morrow who? Faline if our people saw us if some if someone saw us doing this, what are they gonna say about us? We go tell them do not listen to him. Do not do it. And then we go and he was standing there and we listened to my needs. What were you doing there was just I just want to know what he was seeing.

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


00:31:01--> 00:31:23

if you don't do this, again, we cannot do this. We can't afford to make a mistake and do this again. For some ima and Allah, Allah Who do either Dalek and they may and they swore to each other. We will not do this again. From Milan Nicola Minh home and NASA, Elijah Wood. They are all done. And then every one of them said, We swore so I think the other two won't come for each time I said after two fillet.

00:31:25--> 00:31:31

And all three of them ended up next night standing in the same place. Everyone said that he won't do it. He swore he won't do it. Well, if he?

00:31:33--> 00:31:39

What are you doing? They couldn't help it. They couldn't help it. It was just too interesting for them.

00:31:40--> 00:31:45

But they were too proud to admit it. Have you ever been too proud to admit something?

00:31:47--> 00:31:54

Have you ever been too proud to admit something in your life? Has there ever been a point where you were caught red handed or you figured out that you were wrong?

00:31:55--> 00:32:00

But you were too proud to say I was I was wrong? Because the person who was right you just don't like them?

00:32:01--> 00:32:09

Because maybe you don't like the person who was right. It is one of the most difficult things that you will ever do in your life if you end up doing it.

00:32:10--> 00:32:11

And if you don't

00:32:12--> 00:32:31

I remind you of this story here. See Bucha Helen joy will hack me Jimmy enjoyed listening to the prof audio so that was what he was saying it was like honey, honey to the ears. He loved he couldn't get enough of it. You'd wait until was middle of night and go listen. Then he was caught. So the second night they swore again, don't do this again. We can't do this again.

00:32:33--> 00:32:43

Okay, the third night they all three of them. Same place. And they look at each other. What's What's wrong with you? What's wrong with me? What's wrong with you? I thought you were going to do this. They couldn't help it.

00:32:44--> 00:32:51

They wanted to hear him. But he didn't want everyone else to know. I didn't want him to become popular. I didn't want others to believe in him.

00:32:53--> 00:32:55

He's too proud, just too proud.

00:32:56--> 00:33:38

I was a few and maybe amongst them. And He Allah subhanaw taala granted him a lifeline at the end. But the other two didn't. They they continue to fight the Prophet Allah until they died both of them against him. Just too proud to admit. Yeah, he wasn't lying. Yeah, we've been we've been doing this wrong for for many, many years. And yes, what he is saying is definitely, I need definitely the Word of God. It's impossible that a human being put that together the way it was put together, it's impossible to admit that was just one step too far for them. So they didn't. And I asked you in your life. Have you ever had that before? I know I have. I know I have

00:33:39--> 00:33:41

took me years to finally

00:33:43--> 00:34:09

admit it to myself. It took me a few years after that to finally go back and admit it to others that I was wrong. It's very hard, probably the most painful thing I ever did. It's very painful. I was young at the time. But yeah, Annie, I learned a lesson. If you haven't done it yet in your life, you should think human beings are very good at playing around with facts. Whenever they feel that they're wrong. Play around with the story. So it's not as wrong

00:34:11--> 00:34:16

to try to make it less wrong. give themselves some credit that they were they're still doing the right thing.

00:34:17--> 00:34:51

Be a very aware that's exactly why these three never accepted that word of Allah subhanaw taala Oh, it was always interesting to me. They were moved by the Quran, they were moved by the Quran. They couldn't help but they want to hear more. Do you feel that same way? When you read the book of Allah when you hear the book of Allah subhanaw taala? Are you connected that way? If you're not then you need to go and fix that. If that means you need to learn more Arabic than learn the language. Learn the language not because you need not for the cultural part of it learn the language because that's the language Allah Subhanallah sent the last book and this last revelation was sent in Arabic, learn

00:34:51--> 00:34:56

a bit of the language so you can understand it so you can enjoy it. So it can do for you what it did for others.

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam can

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

was up with an idea.

00:35:02--> 00:35:05

I am, I am amazed and Jonnie,

00:35:06--> 00:35:08

extremely interested in this in this part of the Sierra.

00:35:10--> 00:35:49

Arabs don't leave their land. They don't. This is a 3000 year old, historical fact. They never left their land, their land, I'm sorry for the lack of a better word. It sucked. It really did. You're talking about the one of the driest parts of the world. Now, not all of Arabia is dry. Obviously, there's a lot of trees and greens. But in general, it's a very, very difficult piece of land part of the world to live in, you're living in a place it's very hot and very, in very dry. But they never left. They never left, they learn to adapt to the desert and to the temperature. And they learn to live with that.

00:35:50--> 00:35:59

They just never left there. They loved it for the Prophet alayhi salatu salam to come up with an idea that entertain the thoughts to maybe you leave,

00:36:00--> 00:36:02

go somewhere else for a while,

00:36:03--> 00:36:30

was unheard of. And was extremely original, and could only come from him. So Allah who sent him because he's just very flexible. He's thought in every direction Quraysh did not see this coming out a lot of things coming. He didn't see this. The problem it has taught to some sign d an obese engineer and I'm sure like and kind of the Mercedes and the Aston Martin Yes, he's not all these people. Things were not going well. He didn't have the ability to protect them.

00:36:32--> 00:36:42

They just didn't have the ability to protect all these all these Muslims and then we'll go to you can't buy everyone else. He can't bail everyone out. He doesn't have enough money. He did everything he could he literally almost bankrupt himself.

00:36:43--> 00:36:50

So he needed a different solution. So his thoughts are the Allahu Anhu or SallAllahu Sallam is that you go somewhere else.

00:36:52--> 00:36:55

And he chose the land of A B Sr, which is Habesha

00:36:56--> 00:36:57

if you Opia today

00:36:59--> 00:37:06

and his his is logic behind it was the following file. Oh, hello, Jewel in Alden Habesha

00:37:07--> 00:37:27

for interview Innovia Amelie can lie you will ammo and who had then put a line under that sentence had died? Yeah, Allah Allah hula ko Maharajah MIM V. I'm going to have you guys leave IBC in here. In that land, there is a king. He rules the land. And he is someone who is just

00:37:28--> 00:37:29

he is.

00:37:30--> 00:37:35

He is just he's fair. Honey. Does that sound familiar?

00:37:37--> 00:38:16

What are you doing? What am I doing here? Why do you think you're here? Everyone is almost everyone is sitting here? I don't know, maybe almost everyone's sitting here. Why are you here? You see this land didn't produce us didn't produce the skin texture. This face and this news is different. It's produced by different parts of the world. But you're here because you're hoping you find a land. That's just where you can find some justice. The profit is not just an appreciated that thought 1400 years ago, to him that thought was worthy, was worthy of making a very drastic decision of leaving the land of your ancestors and going somewhere else.

00:38:17--> 00:38:34

Maybe temporarily, maybe permanently when they left by the way, they didn't know if they're gonna come back. They didn't know. There was hope that they would come back one day, but they weren't sure about it. The part of the plan was if I don't make it here, then you can continue to live as Muslims and spread Islam there.

00:38:35--> 00:38:50

That's why he sent amongst them people who are knowledgeable, which is why the story of Jaffa is there is because he sent people what knowledge you just send. He didn't send just a week by the way. You didn't just gather all the weak and poor people and say, Okay, go into heaven. No, no, that's not what he did from Allah Hadees IBO Salam.

00:38:52--> 00:38:57

And for him to be able to point out a king, who was not Muslim,

00:38:58--> 00:39:21

who was in our era, just someone who was a mushrik. He believed in something that is completely unacceptable to us, Islamic religion, religious religiously, from a different faith. But for him to be able to say, and to admit, this is a man who was fair, there's a man who was just and he will treat you with justice. That means that means a lot because righteousness is not biased. And because you can't cut it up.

00:39:26--> 00:39:28

Hey, it doesn't only exist within Muslims.

00:39:30--> 00:39:51

I have to admit, I kind of grew up with that mentality as a kid a little bit. That's kind of how it was taught things for a while at least. It's how things were presented to me for a number of years. But that's not how the profit is viewed. That's definitely the Quran sees it. Les Sue. So, not all non Muslims are the same, may not be on much on par in Mattoon at LUNA

00:39:52--> 00:39:53


00:39:54--> 00:39:55

to the end of the iron solid.

00:39:57--> 00:40:00

One, no the same some of them. Some of them do things differ

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

Some of them actually adhere to your ethics into your morals maybe even more than you do. Some of them do.

00:40:07--> 00:40:44

Some alojado. So if you send them, to me, it's an extremely important lesson, not just the flexibility that he had in his heart and mind, to suggest people leave the peninsula leave that actually get into a boat and go through a sea and live in a place where it's not the same culture. It's not the same color. It's not the same religion. It's not the same language. For him to suggest that was insane. But for him to do it, because he knows there, the political, the political leadership in that land is just they will treat you fairly. They'll allow you to practice your Diem, they'll allow you I know that

00:40:45--> 00:40:49

the prophit is thought to some had to be extremely well. Where do you think you learned all that?

00:40:50--> 00:41:07

How do you have the knowledge of that knowing? I think he's from his days, Dublin, McAllen. That's what I that's where my money is, I think when he was a kid, and he sat with his grandfather, and his grandfather knew everyone, his grandfather was known all over, especially he, they specially knew I'd be senior, because that's where I came from.

00:41:08--> 00:41:11

He probably learned that from his grandfather, audience thought was to them.

00:41:13--> 00:41:17

All right, few questions. Why didn't he send them somewhere in Arabia?

00:41:18--> 00:41:32

Why leave? And why not send them to yesterday? Or to somewhere in the middle of the desert? Or, or to the to the east? Why choose to actually go across the Red Sea? to a different country? Why? You know why?

00:41:37--> 00:41:41

Any suggestions? Why do you Why choose? I'd be seniors specifically why not? Yeah, good.

00:41:45--> 00:41:50

Exactly. But why not? There were a fair people also will exist in an array, but why not Arabia, specifically?

00:41:52--> 00:42:15

Exactly. Croatia, Croatia ruled the land. It was easy for Croatia, to get you in a raid or wherever you may be. Why? Because they had the Kaaba. And that's where the snom were. And that's where all the agreements were. You want your idol on the Kaaba, bring us whoever Mohammed sent you. The people will be there the next day, there'll be over so so the the Prophet Allah, you had to choose a place where courage had no leverage.

00:42:16--> 00:42:23

Qureshi will find a way, by the way, he's not like what he is going to give up. No, no, they're going to try their best, but they don't have real leverage and be seen. So he chose Habersham.

00:42:24--> 00:42:26

Second, why didn't he go to audience thought to

00:42:27--> 00:42:39

get out of this whole problem? Maybe go for a year? And just relax, work with the Muslims and maybe do Dawa there and then come back? Why why not? In a difficult one

00:42:40--> 00:42:41

is more political?

00:42:43--> 00:42:44

Who came from Habesha?

00:42:46--> 00:43:16

I just did a female obrah. What did Abraham tried to do? I tried to destroy and Carmen tried to kill everybody. If he were to go there, some of my sins and he would be labeled a traitor till the end of time by all Arabs hands down. Even though he wasn't doing it for that, cause, it would be so easy for Quraysh to immediately label Muhammad, you know, you can almost see the propaganda and all the coloration newspapers. You can see it right away. Now he went to the land of Abra.

00:43:17--> 00:43:29

Treason, you don't go there, your grandfather stood up against him. And now you're going asking help from them? No, no, he couldn't go himself ever out of your thoughts. But he can send some people but himself No.

00:43:34--> 00:43:46

Two sorrows are revealed during this period. During this time, just before the people left just before it was all finalized to suit was revealed. guff and Mobium for very important reasons. He got off

00:43:47--> 00:43:55

the sort of the kind of talks about the elements needed to build a society to build a civilization talks about the four elements.

00:43:57--> 00:44:33

In the story of added cost, that's the idea, you have to have an idea that you're willing to live and die for, you have to have an idea that is so valuable, that you believe in so deeply, that you're willing to live or and die for no. And that's what I had to cough story represents. And then you and you need to have wealth. And that's the second story of the two men with with the money. And you have to have knowledge, and that's the story of Musa and the Saudi oil holder. And you have to have power. And that's the story of the economy. So that kind of explains to you the elements, you need to build something that is sustainable, because they don't know what they're gonna come back.

00:44:33--> 00:44:59

Here's stupid cough. Use that with you, so that you can build your society and I've seen it because we don't know if you're coming back or not. And that's why we read it every single Friday. Because every Friday you remind yourself as a Muslim, what you need the elements that we require to build our civilization again, and in case it falls as it has, in case it falls. We need the four elements again, we need to have an idea that we believe in so deeply that we're all willing to live and die for. We need to have wealth

00:45:00--> 00:45:16

If we have to have collective wealth and individual wealth, we have to have knowledge, not just knowledge of sunnah Quran, but knowledge of all different scientific disciplines that exist on the planet, and we have to have power, we need to come together, our unity has to be something that we care for, so that our voice has weighed.

00:45:17--> 00:45:30

That's why we use you read it every single Friday, just to keep it just to keep that clear. So you gave them that sort of here, take it with you. So you may build your site. And they did. And I'll give you examples of that they actually did.

00:45:31--> 00:45:32

And this was Maria.

00:45:33--> 00:46:02

So with Maria, um, you may say, Well, the reason is because they were Christian, and this was going to say something, and he would be correct, partially suited Meriam talks about the concept of Deen being something that children will inherit from their, from their parents. The importance of family totally talks about the importance of family, it gives all these different examples of families, it gives Zakaria looking for a son, and Meriam with a son with without a husband, and Ibrahim with a fatherhood and all these different

00:46:03--> 00:46:30

all these different types of families, and the difficulties these families have and the importance of holding on to family and then making sure the Dean continues to be inherited. That's what this sort of talks about in general. And it has that part that is going to prove to be extremely helpful when they go and meet their Christian friends and you know, be senior, but this is what the prophet is also prepared. The Muslims are going to have a show with how many went initially he sent 18 people

00:46:32--> 00:46:55

you don't know Ivana, you start to assembly, I'm going to send everybody all at once he sent a team go see telling me how it is telling me if I'm right. Make sure that things are actually the way I think they are 18 When they found Yes, it is going to work. They send back one guy saying we're good. You can send people he sent 85 That's almost 100 people. I know it's not exactly but almost 100 people because the numbers numbers in Siena are always any

00:46:56--> 00:47:15

average numbers and they're never exact numbers. Around 100 people that at the time was almost a third of the Muslims. That was almost a third of his population. A third of his followers he sent that'd be senior some Allah hi nice time you send them 50% Men 50% Women almost down to the almost down to the name.

00:47:18--> 00:47:20

You have a bit more time are we done?

00:47:23--> 00:47:26

Okay, give me five more minutes. Who did you send?

00:47:28--> 00:47:31

I'm giving like hints as I go along. Just the poor people.

00:47:32--> 00:47:33

Or was it a mix?

00:47:34--> 00:47:53

was definitely a mix. Who did you send that you can say is a mix on the more wealthy side. Tell me people who didn't need to go give me an interview who didn't need to go. I can tell you that heard him say that the house had to go. He had to go it's not a my phone had to go in Neeraj had to go.

00:47:54--> 00:47:57

Oh my god, some people had to leave. But some of them didn't have to leave.

00:47:58--> 00:48:16

I smile but I found definitely didn't have to leave or us man didn't even have to do digital later. Earth man was so beloved, and was so popular and as so much status that he could have easily just stayed in Mecca during the time that Prophet alayhi salam went to Medina. But he went and who went with him,

00:48:17--> 00:48:32

even go alone, took his wife. His wife was Roca the product of something they sell them to daughter. He sent his own daughter Salah hottie CIBJO syndrome, she didn't need to go either. He said Jaffa taught him. He didn't need to go.

00:48:34--> 00:49:11

He didn't just end the people who had no wealth and no status. No, he sent some of the most noble names of Quraysh. Why? For a couple of reasons, first of all, to tell this the poor people of Moses that I didn't I'm not throwing you. I'm not getting rid of you. I'm not giving up on you. I'm sending you with you my own daughter. I'm sending with you, my brother Allah, I am sending with you some of the great names of course you should not be left alone. So like, Oh, you're refugees go you have nothing so leave. And then the wealthy will stay back and enjoy. No, no, no, I'm sending with you some of the names that don't need to go. That meant something you see is that type of leadership

00:49:11--> 00:49:47

that we lack. Well, Allah He is that type of leadership that we like in general. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam made sure that the week felt that they were supported that he had their back, that he was there for them that when he made decisions, he never left them. They weren't outside of the equation. He didn't have to send these things but he did. And to tell the king and IV Sr. I'm not sending you just a bunch of people who have nothing. I am sending you my own daughter. I am sending you my cousin I am sending you with my name and our phone. Whatever the Greek names of of the land of mum was known even in Italy senior by the way, he had a name there. He was probably he was no one

00:49:47--> 00:49:49

even there. The king of habit I knew him.

00:49:51--> 00:49:59

This meant something is this leadership on a sought to assembly that he showed was just just remarkable. Amazing. Ly amazing.

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

How long would they stay?

00:50:02--> 00:50:03

They would end up staying.

00:50:04--> 00:50:06

If this was what year is this, this is around year

00:50:07--> 00:50:10

seven, end of six, early seven, something like that.

00:50:12--> 00:50:20

They would stay how many years of Mecca? There's 13 years, right? So seven to 36. And they will come back right after Labor

00:50:22--> 00:50:24

this year, seven or eight,

00:50:25--> 00:50:26

around 15 years,

00:50:27--> 00:50:54

close to 15 years. They will miss out on everything. Everything they will miss by Jakob guna and the 30. And the Hijra and the building of the masjid in Buddle and then conduct, they're gonna miss out. I'm telling you some Sahaba they lived at that time. And imagine if you were able to go back and live in that period, would you miss out on these things? God no. But they did.

00:50:55--> 00:51:02

They didn't do it because they wanted to. They did it because the profit out of your slot goes on commanded them to. They did it as an act of worship.

00:51:03--> 00:51:15

As an act of PA they came back they didn't they had never seen a masjid was new to them. They didn't know what the plan was. They just knew whatever verses of Quran that they had, maybe maybe a third of the Quran was revealed maybe.

00:51:16--> 00:51:31

And the prayers weren't even fully established. They were just praying to God in different times of the day in the morning in the evening. That's it. And they came back and things have completed nowadays Ramadan, and there's a kind there's hydrogen, and all these new things are haram and all these new things that are foreign, they know that others

00:51:32--> 00:52:00

the Prophet alayhi salatu salam asked them to sacrifice themselves and they did this. It's a huge sacrifice. That's why when they come back the Prophet alayhi salatu salam takes care of them. He takes care of them we big time. He puts in a lot of effort and wealth to make sure that they that he integrates them back into society again, and offers them all the support and teaching and knowledge that they need, how to use salatu salam because it was very difficult for me Habiba would come back. Now the Allahu anha. She is the daughter of Sofia, and

00:52:01--> 00:52:03

she had to leave because she was being mistreated.

00:52:04--> 00:52:42

And she didn't have to leave because her father was the inspiration. So somewhere in the middle, but she left and her husband lost Islam there, he actually left Islam. Imagine this story. Imagine how horrific this story is. She leaves so that she can hold on to her Deen, where there's husband and children and her husband goes there and leaves Islam and leaves her and now she has to take care of herself and her children. That's why when she came back, she became one of Maha meaning. The Prophet Allah married when she became a woman what meaning but um, let me tell you, Sophia, the Allahu Allah. She had to make she would make dolls, and necklaces and sell them. The Muslims, they got into

00:52:42--> 00:52:59

crafts, they would make small ornaments and they would sell them. That's what they did and be seen here. Because there was no How was they have to produce something there. They kind of sit there living on welfare. Often the Joshi and his, you know, they had to, they had to make a living, as Muslims always do, whenever any country they go to they, they produce.

00:53:01--> 00:53:13

But they will stay for 15 years. I'll talk about it more once they come back. Once we make it as far as the high bar, we'll talk about it when they all came back. And what they found and how he integrated the money you saw to some successfully.

00:53:14--> 00:53:16

They go and they meet then a Joshy

00:53:19--> 00:53:21

Oh, 100 of them. He

00:53:22--> 00:53:42

turns out to be exactly as he said, I saw this. I always wondered, imagine if he was wrong, some listen to mash. And if he was wrong, they go there. And he enslaved everybody, mostly, but this is like the worst thing ever. But I think it's awesome. Nobody was doing. And it turned out to be exactly the way he said he offered them refuge. And they lived to give him a piece of land, give them houses, and they start to live there.

00:53:43--> 00:53:58

And of course he shares that 100 Muslims 100 people, around 55 to 60 of them are from Quraysh meaning their children, their siblings, their relatives are now inhibition.

00:53:59--> 00:54:31

And people lost their minds. They literally could. He got so upset and so angry and so mad. How could he do this? How could he Abu Sufyan lost it? How could he send my daughter? How dare he even suggest something like this to go live in a foreign land with a foreign king? So they start putting together everything they can to bring them back and we'll talk about that part of the story in sha Allah next week. Subhan Colombia ham dicussion Allah Allah Allah and a still Federico to bootleg or some Allah who was telling them about like I don't know being a Muhammad Ali was like the Jemaine
