Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam Americana you know have you been a Muhammad you know early he was so happy Jermaine are bad. Today inshallah we'll continue from where we left off last week in the seal of the prophets of Allah Allah you are you stop yourself from right now we're in the midst of the years of the boycotts of the Klein of Husham. And these are between years seven, beginning of year seven of his prophecy is thought to sound the end of year nine. So basically three years in total or something around that. And this is of course before and prior to his digital audio software set up to Medina. These new years were very detrimental. These
three years very few people accepted Islam because the Muslims actually weren't even allowed to leave the client of Hashem at all the profanity aside, such access to the outside world was very limited. Outside of the 10 days of Hajj. He really didn't see anyone outside of the clan of hush outside of his relatives, and the fact that he had made threats against his life. How do you start to sit and I will tell him his job or I thought it was a quest at the time was to keep him alive. So every night you having sleep at different places. It is so sad for three years not sleeping in his home. His family's kind of scattered in different houses every single night a different place.
He doesn't have access to perform Garhwali Salatu was Salam.
O the Muslims are scattered in three cut in three different places, some inside Mecca, some inside side of the clan or the ship of Bani Hashim, and some in in Habesha.
People inside the clan are extremely extremely hungry, they're very, they have no provision, there are no means to make any money Croatia has made the treaty had within it it was that they no one is to buy from them or sell them or marry into them or get married from them nothing. Basically no social interaction or social or financial interactions were allowed. And this went on for three years, no matter how much Jonnie reserve you have, after three years is going to run out. So that's why the all the stories that we have, I knew within these, within this time span of these three years in the books of Sierra, they're all very, very sad stories, I'm not going to share them with
you, you can go and read them, if you want to know them know more about this period. But they're all very sad stories of people who lost loved ones.
People who starve to death basically, and people were begging merchants for the smallest amount of provision offering everything that they had, and still not being able to take anything home. And I shared a few with them yesterday.
And also talk to you about he showed me up in Amarillo armory, the man who had a little bit of integrity in him. And it couldn't it couldn't bear to see that many people living literally less than a kilometer away starving while the rest of Croatia was fine. He was sending the camel and he almost got killed for it. But not all the people in Croatia were in agreement with the treaty that Abuja and Abu Sofia and omae had written and signed, they didn't know like and at the end of the third year, so within the year number nine towards the end of year number nine, three people came together. I will read Nisha, and multimedia and ID and he showed me Ben Avraham is the one we talked
about a few moments ago you were talked about last time. So these three people and they're all very well respected nobles of courage, they've gathered and they said, You don't matter. Not cool. Where are you? Roberto Hashem, Ilana? Yes, well, a foreigner when you're outside your home and so when do we continue to eat? And do Hashem starve? Until when do our children eat and their children so when How long is going to go on to Allah He into her Nestle, he's gotten walima this treaty that they signed, is it a treaty of oppression?
Allah Hilarion Battilana when Allah in summer sent me it will be her last lesson. So in Nicaragua, we shouldn't be doing this. And if the Arabs, Arab tribes end up hearing about this, if this if the word of this actually leaves, then then it's going to be very, very harmful to our reputation. You see, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam during the 10 days of Hajj, and the people in the clan were able to leave, because Qureshi wouldn't dare harm anyone during the time of Hajj. First of all, it's a sacred month. And second of all, of Arabia's there to witness the religious leadership, oppressing people just because they have a different opinion they couldn't do it. So those 10 days the Muslims
got a breather every year they go out to eat steaks and food, bring back something.
But they never told Ankara what was happening.
I thought that it was interesting. I'm not sure if you ever noticed that. You see the Prophet audience talk to Sam during those 10 days of Hajj didn't go to the tribes of Arabia telling them that Christ is starving us by the way. They didn't. They didn't tattletale as you would say. You didn't tell them Koresh. If Christ was putting up a fight, the Muslims were happy to take the fight. They didn't feel the need to go and ask others to fix their problems. They fix their problems on their own. And to me that always meant something that they weren't running around begging people to support them begging people to for a handout, but no, no, that's not how they did it. This was a
standoff between the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and his clan and Quraysh and he was happy to go through with it
it without needing to go to other tribes and ask them for their support. That's why the Arabs didn't know. The Muslims didn't tell them coalition of if he's not going to tell them. It looks bad, it reflects poorly on them. But the Muslims in neither
they didn't feel the need to, which I think shows a certain level of pride. Good prides you not all pride is bad, not all of it.
Pride that allows you to think that you are fundamentally somehow better than someone else. Get rid of that sweep it out. It's worthless, it's meaningless. It only grows into a demon that later on destroys your life, just really down the line. It just happens way down the line like like 2030 years down the line for dogs to eat. Yup. But pride that means a feeling of confidence in who you are a feeling of integrity and strength in your identity and what you stand for. That's all right. I know the word is kind of used differently from one culture to the other. But I'd like to take a moment to think about that.
So these three men, they gathered, and they started talking about this. We can't We can't stand for this.
And they started talking about a just before the third year anniversary of the of the boycott of the treaty. Why? Because there was going to be an annual meeting where the nobles of Croatia would resign the treaty, or pledge their alliance to that treaty. And which I was going to gather information, say, we're going to do another year, renew this treaty for another year, let blue Hashem learn their lesson. Let's teach them a lesson to make sure that they never do this again. So these two people had prepared themselves prior to that happening.
And here's what they agreed to do. So what they agreed to do, and the narration tells us that we'll go through Nishan came up with the idea. He said, Look,
if we stand out together tomorrow, and we show it out that we don't accept, it will be very clear, there's only three of us. So we need to do tomorrow, is get as many people who can support us. And we need to stand and scatter ourselves in the groups amongst amongst the population. Like if it's just one group that doesn't like it, you can differentiate, okay, that group over there doesn't like it, this group is fine with it. But if you had them scattered amongst everyone, it gets lost. And all you hear is voices coming out. So that's what they did. They went in, they started to gather support. So wasn't just three of them. They went to other people who they knew didn't necessarily
think that this boycott was humane, and it should end.
They were able to gather maybe 1015 people the next morning for a gathers Abuja Hello opens the Kaaba, and he brings out the treaty. And he starts, you know, talking about it, about the importance of adhering to it, about the importance of making sure every merchant adheres to the to the clauses of it. And as he's talking, he jumps up from over there. And he says, he used to hate them. walima there's an oppressive treaty.
And then it would work today standing over there. Yes, you abandon CUDA. How would you get rid of it?
And then multimer sitting in the middle,
I let you know, I'm not the Heartless I mean, we should completely end it than another person yells for and then when, and when person yells from here, and another one from there, and another one from there. And it seems like the whole crowd starts. And then the whole cars crowd starts yelling at him. So it was a Fiona standing beside him. And he's watching. And I was just looking at this
one boy UTV lean. So some, some when something happened last night, someone someone, some people that came together, and they planned this out, this is not spontaneous. That was if you're immediately able to read that this is not spontaneous, someone, someone put together a plot, and how they're humble and buoyed, I believe it is something that was planned out last night. But at that point,
enough people had you see what what it takes to get people to stand by what is right, is just the bravery of a few.
That's all it takes really,
you have something called the silent majority. I've heard that the silent majority. The majority of people on this planet are good people who aren't racist, weren't full of heat, who loved the environment, who respect their fellow human being, who would like to see equity, who believe in equality, who want to cooperate, who wants to collaborate, who wants to help one another, but they're the silent majority. They're quiet. They don't get involved. When there are protests, they don't go.
They're not on any news channels, yelling and fighting and screaming. They're not blogging on the internet. They're not tweeting, no, they're the silent majority.
It's a shame but that's, that's, that's how it is. How do you get the silent majority to help out? You just need a brave few that organize and speak? Speak in the name of that majority? May they reflect the thoughts, the feelings, the prospects of that majority? And that's how you get things done. You see these three people, they had the bravery to decide they're gonna make a difference. And they did not Muslim by the way. I like this example because it has nothing to do with Islam. It benefited Islam, but it wasn't the most
ones who didn't, it wasn't, it was just three people who saw oppression didn't like it and decided they're going to change it. And then reflected the feeling of the majority of place. See, the nobles had a reason why they wanted to starve brainwashed them, they had a political agenda they wanted to get through. But the majority of candidates didn't care. Just like the majority of people don't really, it doesn't really matter to them. Who wins the election? Or what bill goes through? Or what laws end up making? They don't care? It's not right. Bear with me here, the silent majority isn't correct. By doing that. That's just the reality. That's just how things happen. You want to be able
to make a difference in people's lives, you need to have a few brave people, courageous people who come together, collaborate, work with one another and reflect the value system of that majority. And things will start changing. But the problem is those who are usually activists and communities are unfortunately not reflecting the feelings of the majority.
Because usually people are very, very passionate about their agenda. It's their agenda. It's not the majority's agenda. It's something that sort of self serves them. It's what they think is right. They didn't ask others to see what everyone thought was right? Here's the problem. Another problem we have those who sit in a place like like, where I'm sitting right now, they don't listen to what you have to say, doesn't matter to them. I'm guilty of this, like everyone else, by the way. I act like I'm not, but I'm just as guilty.
Maybe I try to be better, but I'm not that good. We don't listen, we're not listening to what people want. So I come and give the dose that I want to give. It's not necessarily the one that you need to listen to understand the difference. There's something that you need and you want. And that's what I want to do. If they're not aligned and nothing works. My job is to see out to what it is that you need. You want you require what will serve you and then that's what I deliver. But if I'm not listening, how would I know?
So I ended up doing my own thing. That's why we don't get the support. That's why our institutions are, are moving on their own. And the majority doesn't don't care. They just pray to them and they leave. Because Because whatever these institutions are doing does not reflect their needs. I understand what I'm saying here.
These three people reflected the thoughts and feelings of the majority of coalition. That's why everyone stood by them, and basically lost. Just to make this more interesting. This is narrated in the in CLTV, Sherm and by even his heart and by the work at when it comes to the actual chain of narration, there's a lot of debate on it, but it's in every book and I don't see any reason for it not to be narrated, to be honest. As this was happening, Abu Talib arrived, this is almost all happening at the same time, this meeting is happening, and that Bucha had his speaking and the three men have started their plots and now people are starting to be geared up against this, this this
Sahifa this treaty, but at the same time, we'll call him is coming out of the first time he's left in years and three years the first time he leaves, he leaves because the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam told him something. He told him by the way, the treaty has been eaten by termites. Nothing of it is almost left. Besides the word of Allah, Mr. McCullough home, everything else has been completely destroyed. You can go and tell Christ that.
So I will tell you, I believe the Prophet alayhi salatu was sent in all right, if you sure in the Prophet, as I said, Of course, I'm sure what did I like to you before? So we'll talk about that. All right, he leaves he arrives just as Abu Talib. They're just as Abu Jamal is having this discussion. And people are writing a lot of noise when it comes in. They haven't seen him in three years, urban quiets down, and I will talk to him sees that is almost over. But he wants to make this final. So he tells him by the way,
I was told by my nephew, who has never lied to me before that if you are to open the
package, or whatever, or whatever compartment that the saliva or that the tree is actually put in so it was hidden somewhere inside the cabin. If you are to open it, it's been there for a year, you will find that there's nothing left of it. Every part of it all the paper with the ink was written on, it's all been eaten, and all slept of it is the word this week alone. And if that is true, and I dare you that it is you will end this treaty.
So we just had found this as a way out, because you'd already lost. He's like, No, that's not gonna happen. So he tells him, but if it isn't true, then you will stand here in front of everyone. And you will admit that your nephew is a liar. And he will give him to us. I will tell him say you have a deal.
You have a deal. Fine, go ahead.
So there's going to be easy. I mean, within a year to eat and just leave one part that's impossible. So they go on the open the compartment. And sure enough, they take out the piece of paper and nothing is left of it. But the word Bismillah
and everyone went silent. And people thought it
held them to their word.
Then the treaty is over. Nuclear is safer, not a lot is safer, and everyone starts to scream knock people to save. The treaty has been an old the treaty has been an old
and the people of Croatia was standing there went, and they went to the kind of Hashem greeting their brothers and sisters, their relatives, their friends, people that they lived with for years back out of the clan again, after three years of not being able to see them basically
years ago by many, many years, we're now post Angela, and the Battle of bigger the first battle only for con. The brother Ali Asad, some gathers the sahaba. Before the battle, he tells him Something tells them today
as you fight for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, you may come by, I will go through evening Sham, Sham didn't fight in the Bible about Allah but with courage, and more time had died by then the person who was on that side, it was available today, he was still there. He left with what I wish he was still emotional. He never He didn't accept Islam. But that's what that's what happened. So he told them, it is awesome. If you are to meet him in battle, leave him
if that's the person who comes to you walk away, go fight somewhere else.
And sure enough, the battle began. And he's walking in with his sword, ready to fight like everyone else, every time he comes to fight someone, the person leaves.
So he goes to someone else and that person leaves. And after seven, eight people, he gets frustrated. He starts yelling.
There was a certain code of honor when it came to fighting battles. It's unlike today, warfare today is very different. Back then there was some code of honor that existed. Oh, look, today, everyone's running away from him. He looks about he's not he's not doing anything. He's studying the middle of a battle. He's not capable of doing anything at all. Because every time he every time he faces the Muslim Muslim leaves. So he the one of the Muslims that left and we will stay runs after him. He's like, No, you're not leaving, I'm going to pursue you. So he runs after him and the Muslim runs away and he runs after the Muslims are running across him. Why are you running? Where are you going? This
is not how you this is not how we do this and you do not know how this is done.
Rasulullah he netwrok
the prophet has told us that we see we leave you
and why would he do that? Paula Wolfert and Lille Messiah
said out of loyalty to the day of the treaty, you stood by us on that day. You did a good deed, you'll find this, this trend in his life out of you salatu salam every single time every turn every step of the way, you will find the concept of Rafa the concept of being loyal. The concept of never forgetting a good deed that was done to you ever. We are all guilty of this, by the way, all of us. We all do this. I want you to go back in your memory tonight. And think about there's a lot of parts of your life that you don't like thinking about. But those parts they don't like thinking about. You don't think about them. Because during that time you were a person in need. You were in need, you're
weaker, you have less you you're humiliated. You didn't You didn't know what, at that time people helped you. And because you ended up forgetting that whole time you don't want to think about it because it was a bad memory. You ended up forgetting all the good deeds that were done for you in your life. When there's a problem. The prophet Isaiah Santosa never would never ever even before he died called ma'am he hadn't asked the Elayna are often Ill know who Behala in Abu Bakr in Mr. Parr to MacArthur atta for Dr. MacArthur to hula. He said before he died, every person who's done a good deed towards me. I have paid it back. I have done something nice to him in return, everyone.
Except obika I can't I can't seem to ever pay him back for what he did for me. I'll do what no one bought. But the constant was there. And you'll find that like a trend in his life audio so that was to them. So he got even he he thought about it for a moment when he heard these words, but unfortunately, it didn't touch him as much as it should. And he continued to pursue this Muslim almost killing him. But before he was able to actually take this Muslim out that Muslim fought back and he died so he went to the prof how to sell to send this Muslim leader in tears saying hello so Allah Yeah, and even up to now I felt I did. I did something horrible on him. I thought what do you
do for Carla Patel? terbukti I killed the man who told us not to but only market delta and why did you kill him? He told me this what happened? I thought Mr. Lika in Nima I had no effect it that's not a problem. This is war, obviously. But we just want to be loyal. If you refuse your loyalty that's that's up to him.
The emerge at the end of year nine.
The numbers haven't changed. The number of Muslims is pretty much the same. plateaued for three years, which is which is a significant amount of time out of 23 Three years. That's a significant amount of time for this to plateau.
Almost no one entered maybe 1015 People tops.
Actually some Muslims have died. The numbers went down a little bit because during this target, they emerge exhausted. They emerge hungry, they emerge tired. They emerged their morale is as low as you can imagine it to be.
They're walking out yesterday, they but what mattered really to me and this is that they emerge
victorious yes exhausted yes tired. Yes hungry. Yes weaker in numbers and physically, but they emerged victorious from from a character perspective. From a character perspective they they stood their ground they stood no matter even though it was extremely hard even though people died of starvation they stood their ground they didn't give up they didn't cave in. No one came in said that's it. I can't I can't handle this anymore. Here I don't I'm not a Muslim anymore. Just let me out. No one did this.
No one left Koresh begging them to I don't I give up. None of the merchants who had a lot of money and came to the Prophet later circumstance said look at us with Allah. I love Islam and all but you know, I spent all my life trying to build this business. You expect me to ruin everything? Look, Allah he will. I will give you my dua to Allah. My dua is with you and I and I'll see you on when this is over. No one did that.
No one Earth No, no, no one did this. They lost their wealth they lost their maid lost their businesses, they lost their caravans for three years saw a problem. Sometimes you don't think about that.
Imagine if they had jobs. Alright, let's make bring this down to something more simple. And they had jobs, good jobs, jobs that are very difficult, difficult to come by a job that you would never ever and you want to lose? Because it's hard to get back? And then now three years you need to be with the prof obviously have to choose? Are you going to be with him on a softer stand your ground stand for what is right? Stand for your freedom to believe whatever you want to believe and say what you have the right to see. Or you're gonna leave that Bible for someone else. And your provision is more important.
They didn't they lost their jobs they lost it doesn't didn't matter. You see, because we don't talk about this you think didn't happen? Like so they sign the clan for three years and got hungry and lift.
People's lives were altered. People die, people often lost their jobs, lost their wealth, lost their money lost their prospect, they lost it. This is not something simple. It's not an easy kind of brush this off? Because I'll tell you why. Because I know that I don't know if I could have done it. I asked Allah subhanaw taala that had I been there, I would have done it ask that for you as well make that draw for yourself that you would have stood by him at least so you wouldn't have lost your grit. You would have persevered through these three years. But when you think about it, what do we do all our lives just try and work our way up the ladder, try to get better jobs, get better social
statuses, mental financial statuses, and then someone like Mohamed Salah lesson comes around and asks you and ask you a question.
What is the most valuable thing in your life that are doing the right thing and puts you right on that line and forces you to make a decision every day of your life. Living with him at least in a certain way was tiring.
In a certain way, it was tiring because he always had that choice in front of himself in front of you. Here's the right thing. Here's what's convenient. And he never ever again. He never shows it was convenient. He always did the right thing. And if you're with him, you had to do the same which meant you had to sacrifice a lot your time and your wealth and your status and your and your home and your country and the soccer if they lost everything. We don't realize that a lot of the Sahaba they lost everything himself on a soft reset. When we talk about America. He comes home there's no his home doesn't exist in Mecca. They they tore it down. He didn't have a home anymore. They took
away the house that he was born in his father was born in Ghana. McClellan was born in Ghana, he could count 23 Different if you were born in that house. That is insane. is gone. You have to sacrifice that He was buried on it in such a way to us Medina is the medina facility.
But to him it is
damage to foreign countries, not his.
He's from Africa. That's why you he his grandfather built the city. In other grandfather, Rob zamzam. His other grandfather built the Kaaba, that's where he's from, but he was buried in a different city. You accepted that, because doing the right thing requires that level of sacrifice is difficult. It's not easy. These three years are miraculous, in my opinion, from a human and perseverance perspective through miraculous how they did this, I don't know.
And then, you know, our
our time comes in, and what's required of us and really, what is it that we're sacrificing? And really, what is it that is asked of us on a daily basis? The comparison is so
it's so few tiles, there's no comparison really, there's really nothing. We just can't organize our time.
We can't just get over our egos. We can just find a way to work with each other. That's it, but what about them? Or the law 100 You might
not spied but we have to talk about this. Let's go through his offenses
Ebola have the day the Prophet alayhi salatu salam brought together his family for the feast, stood up and said very rude things to the Prophet. It is also his face in his home.
Hold that tongue shut that mouth, stuff like that, or they start to sound did not respond first offense.
Second Offense, he stands out as thought to sit up on the mountain, I would have cursing him out.
He says something rude to him, he's uses a curse word to refer to some does not require respond. I start to some walks into down the roads of Mecca, trying to talk to people about Islam. And I was able to come and tell him he is insane. Do not speak to him. And people say well, his uncle must know Him more than anyone. The Prophet Elisa would never even turn back to him and say until nothing just kept on doing his thing.
Both Abu Lahab sons were engaged to both the Prophet raised our sons daughters, and he drew it he you know the engagement or it's been Otaiba we're
engaged to loci and Uncle Phil
and he any and all that as well.
During the boycott, he paid merchants money not to sell the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the people in the clan. Not once do we have in all of these stories that the Prophet Alia sought to send looked at his uncle in a rude way. I didn't say say say something rude. He didn't even look at him in a disrespectful way. didn't even look at him in a disrespectful way. Not even once. Not even once. There's no way in nowhere. There's not one place in the book of zero. All the books that the Prophet Allah is taught to some finally got fed up with his uncle and said, Enough is enough. And I need you I need to I need to straighten you out. Nothing. White, he How could he do that? How could he be
disrespectful to his elder is his uncle. He see, you see, they had certain ethics that we don't think about. You see when you're when you're fighting with your parents. When you raise your voice and your parents or your family members, you're only hurting yourself. You're not hurting anyone else because that's your family, your family. If you ruin your family, that reflects poorly on you, and it harms you and you're left with the mess. None of us is is affected by this. But sometimes you get so angry you forget about that. This is your family.
Blood never turns into water. And it's always worth something the prophet is often refused, he refused. And that's why there's an ayah in the Quran. There's a surah in the Quran that talks about him.
Give me any other people who stood against somebody who sought to some whose names are in the Quran. Is that Bucha his name in the Quran? No, Sophia, no, who may you know, also been? Well, no one will even know the names aren't there. Maybe there are references to things they did, but not their names. But then you have batida A B LAB with a
because it will have every reason to do the right thing. We did the wrong thing. And we'll have new the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was honest, because he raised him. He knew he was truthful. He knew what he was saying was the truth. He was from his family, he had a higher incentive to defend him and stand by him. All of the ducks are in a row for a Buddha has to be the best Muslim.
But money was much more valuable. his wealth, his business, his caravans that he worked all his life. See what
comes from his father is optimal, but him right.
And their grandfather's Hashem. What's known about the Prophet Alia, soulstones family is that they are from a status perspective of high level, high social status, but financial status very low, no money. Why? Because they're philanthropists, all of them throughout history, they gave their money away. They just kept on taking care of people took care of the agendas took care of everybody, so didn't have money. And I was tired of that. He was one of my you know, there's always like that person in the family, who was tired of not having money, who wanted the money, didn't have money. He didn't have money in a bursary. They didn't have money, I would have wanted it. And he wanted it so
bad that Allah subhanaw taala when he would Allah put him at that point gave him that choice between doing what is right. And you have all the incentives in the world to do what is right, and your money. And your caravans and your financial status that you worked hard for he chose, he chose his wealth. That's why is his morale. Now I know
You start little scale that exists inside the minds of each and every one of us. You don't see it. It comes with the package of life is given to you. When you're given life, you're given a package and a couple of tools and you open up a bunch of stuff in there. One of the things you have in there is this little scale, this scale that allows you to make your decisions.
Every decision maker make it based on that little scale.
What do I mean when you're sleeping in the alarm goes off. Six o'clock is scheduled. The scale is up. Now what
photo or the coziness of my bed, how comfy it is how tired I am the fact that I slept at four o'clock in the morning or and then you start weighing it out and whatnot.
versus heavier ends up dictating your decision.
So thought is vital, which is the right thing to do. If righteousness of doing the right thing is assigned in your heart, the heaviest amount possible, the heaviest value, you'll get up every time.
And if your leisure is the heaviest value value available, then you'll never get up. And if it's somewhere in the middle, then one day you won't and one day you will. And one day you won't and one day you will,
I will have
assigned his wealth, the infinite value. See, everything can be weighed out, just don't touch his money. Don't Don't touch his money. What you can talk about whatever you want, just don't come near his money, because it has infinite value in terms of its weight. You put it into scale, and it scales down, nothing comes close. That value should be assigned to a hawk in your life. As a Muslim, you assign that infinite value to doing the right thing. Nothing comes close. Nothing that there's no up and No, no, there's no wobbling of the scale. What's the right thing to do? You do the right thing. But maybe I don't care. No, no, don't give me but
what what will people's I don't care what people think? It's one question, what is the right thing to do?
You do it or else you have assigned that Hawk of the infinite value of weights. And if you haven't, then it's just a matter of time before Allah subhanaw taala puts us to the test and we fail.
And that's the that's the anthem of Surah invested and that's what they will have represents. He would die during this time he would die. How
he hits one of his look, look at this, look at this ridiculous story. particular story. He has a slave he slaps a slave, young boy 10 years old or something. This one your 10 year old boy has a very protective sister 1516. She hears that I will have slapped him. She takes her four by four or whatever. And she goes to him and she slapped hit him as hard as he can on his head. And it opens up a
it opens up a wound in his in his head. And this won't get infected. It gets infected everyone thinks that it's contagious. So he's left inside his house. Not even his wife will go in, no one will talk to him, no will come near him. They will send him his food tied to the neck of a dog. Somebody would feed him. They would tie food to a dog and send the dog in because no one come near him.
And he died inside his home. And they were so escaped. He wasn't it wasn't infectious, by the way. But there were so scared that's what happened and he died in his home. And they just brought the home down on top of them.
Subhanallah the ending of someone who you can say who harmed the profit audio software said I'm worried I could say made made a really really poor choice. I was faced with doing the right thing time and time again and chose and chose his wealth every time just chose his convenience every time that's open ended. By the way of profit ideas, thoughts, I was very upset when he died.
Yesterday, the prophet Alia scientism warned him, he felt bad for him.
I had scholars who would tell us whenever you're sitting around someone who was from the Prophet Allah yourself to set up a family, when you were safe Quran don't receive the message out of respect for them, because it hurts them. It reminds them of someone of their family but as the Quran. The Quran pointed out someone related to the Prophet Allah says in your relationships, your kinship, your blood won't help you your multi ama is something beautiful if you happen to be related to a great name, if you're related to some great scholar, a great Sahaba is a beautiful thing for you to carry grant you this confidence and strength. But it won't help you you'll know pm if your actions
didn't help you. If your choices and values didn't help you.
NASA would have died.
The end of year nine and beginning of year 10.
So the Prophet Alia sought to he emerges from this, as I said very tired, very weak, he had lost a staggering amount of weight. Khadija was a skeleton of Bhutan and was so sick at the end of this he couldn't, he could barely move. He got very sick, he got very, very tired. Many Muslims had died and all this. So the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam starts to think, what do I do now? So we started to think about taking the Bible outside of Mecca.
He starts thinking outside the box, okay, I've tried I've invested nine years here, nine years, nothing has I haven't able to do anything. They almost starved to death. Croatia is not I need to go and seek support outside of Mecca. So he starts thinking
about places that he could go to seek support from as he's doing this
tragedy takes place.
And we'll call him the Prophet sallallahu Salem's uncle passes away. It's very sick.
I find it really difficult to tell that last few moments of his life as it is narrated in the books of
Have Hadith and Sira
just because of the amount of sorrow that you can see almost just by reading the story just by reading it. You can see the sorrow in the eyes of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, as he's sitting in front of his uncle, just asking him Yeah, I'm Colima
owner ONA, Bianca, yo Malkia. Just give me one word to say La Ilaha illa Allah, I will fight for you. I will not move your milk Iam until you're with me just Just give me one word.
As he's passing away, he's dying. Very old. He doesn't want to break his nephew's heart. But he's not alone. The prophit is solid to us. I mean, see, there's a bunch of people who made a point of being there and we'll call him died.
See, you look at the opposite side. They're very committed to their to their cause, by the way. It's a horrible cause, but they're committed to it. Unfortunately, it's more than some of the people who have worked with them are committed to their cause, for whatever weird reason.
So we'll enable Sofia in
an ultra liberal Robbia and will lead and last Romania would come they would make sure it's what two or three of them were there. The narration we have in the in the books is that Bucha was there at that last moment. That's why the prophit is solid. That's why he became the
the sworn enemy. He sat there and he would tell we'll talk to him started to get a bit more sentimental towards the end people.
And the prophet is always pushing for it and tell him just give me a word. I beg you, I asked you based on our relationship, I am your nephew. No one loves you more than me. Give me just one word. Just say Allah. Please. I beg you just one word.
And we'll try to say it but it was just sitting there a total Cool man letter Abdulmutallab. You're going to leave the way of your father.
If it was good enough for your father. Yeah. Well, Todd, if it's not good enough for you, then it will tell it it would look at the profile. You sort of said I'm gonna say
pay for a taco mill letter A B? Yeah, hold on. How do I leave my father I had to do with
Subhan Allah and the Prophet esos I'm sitting there and he starts to cry, he starts to sob begging his uncle, just give me just give me this word. And I'm just sitting there
continues to remind him how you're going to you're going to cave. You're going to leave your dean. It just was with Arabic. The Arabs are going to talk about you and say that it will taught him fine left the middle of Abdul Muttalib And Hashem and, and fear and Malik all his ancestors, even though we don't even know if that's what they believed in. We don't even he doesn't even know that. Just an issue of social reputation. That's all it was. And as far as generation goes, is that Abu Talib never said it.
That's what we know. Bhutan never said it. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he cried.
He cried that day. He was very, very sad, very broken, that he couldn't save his uncle. He walked out and we got her walked out happy. Victorious he will tell him died holding on to what animal polyp did he didn't follow Muhammad. He can go around and tell people this now it's just an agenda for him. For him is just as the agenda but the Prophet Allah says I'm sitting there crying. His uncle didn't say it. Now he can't he can't he can't say anything. mckernon II we're Lavina Manuel Are you still with Euro Hill Mushrikeen what Oka and Ollie acaba
you can make it so far with someone who died not believing in Allah subhanaw taala altogether or conforming shook Prophet Allah saw some knew that and then sort of courses will come to him and he started saying Nicola tehidy Man, but what I can Allah? Yeah, do you mean Yeah, unfortunately, Mohammed you don't get to choose guidance for the people you love. Allah guides whoever wants to be guided. You do your thing, but you can't isn't what you want. Of course, that's what we want. We want our kids in our families and our siblings, everyone to be guided. Make dua for that. We hope we try our best, but you can't choose it at the end a loss if it chooses who's going to be guided who's
not hurt him. I saw two separate hurt. If you read those narrations you'll see you'll hear you'll hear the sorrow in his heart out of yourself as he asked begging his uncle. Just give me a word. I won't move your milk piano without you just give me a word. If you don't give me that word, I can't say anything. I can't I can't go against the will of Allah subhanaw taala say it. You wouldn't say it. I mean, walked away. I used to sit on brokenhearted. By the way I thought it was a controversial figure. Whether he said it at the end of that we're not 100% Sure. No majority say that he didn't we don't know. But that narration is definitely heartbreaking.
He says that he does talk about the difficulties that happened after I will call him died. You remember all the stories I've told you so far, all the oppression or the physical, social financial, psychological oppression that he's went through all sorts other persecution.
Imagine all that for a moment in your mind. And then listen to what he said out he gets thrown out to someone's toilet died or something
lies in the manner that mini Quraysh to fear boo polyp courage never actually harmed me. I thought it would Talib died
imagine what what happened afterwards. He thing is awesome Quraysh never really got to me never actually was able to harm me until we die. But you have a sort of love for years now. You've been persecuted you you have to send people to have a shot. Yeah. Yeah, but that was nothing in comparison to what happened after Abu Talib died.
Now the Prophet alayhi salatu salam lost the person who protected him on the outside
and the idea of assassinating him so the lie Salem comes back again they start talking about it again is that isn't that why the the boycott began the boycott happened because because they said let's try and kill him I will tell them here's about it. He reacts he takes the profit puts them in the Klan so they do the boycotts that's why it was because they said we're going to kill him and I said no you're not Not while I'm alive. Well now he's not alive anymore. So crazy like well now. Now we can do it. No Mohammed so I said does not have the protection. I will thought it Yes, I burst is now the head of any Hersham level at birth is nothing in comparison. double bottom doesn't have the
same strength doesn't have the same charisma doesn't have the same grit doesn't have the same leadership skills. It's easier now we can start to resurface again. The fact that we can kill him some allies and by the way, he was never told by Allah that he wasn't going to die. I want you to remember that all through his life on
some people may tell you no, no, he knew he was gonna die. No, he didn't. For him I listened to he says subhanaw taala
for in PNAS Herban Nabek for in Mina who moonta Ki Moon Oh Nohrian Nicola de vida know whom for in the road, what are two things will happen either you die and we seek revenge upon them upon those who kill you, or this actually works out and you will see the prosperity of this message.
We're in Nordea, Nikka Balga Lizzy and I do whom it's either we're going to show you the success and victory that we've promised you some of it you'll see some of it. Oh net our fan neck or you die for in ice cold. But
it's not a problem because your job is only to spread the message while he served and we'll do the reckoning yomo Chioma he was never told his throat was salam, walla wa Similkameen. And nurses from Sutan in Medina, came many, many years later and does not talk about physical
physical protection. For him it so it was it was religious protection, not physical. And we'll talk about that later when it comes. He never knew, as far as he knew he could die.
As far as he knew, if he didn't protect himself and do the right thing. You could end up being killed by coalition. He wasn't told by God, you will never go to him. No, don't worry, you're fine. You just do your thing. There'll be 2 million acres that are in shifts, they'll always be there to protect, you know, that wasn't the case.
And to me, that's extremely important because
it changes things if you think that he knew that he was going to die because you and I know he'll live until 63 and he'll see things things through it's easy but if he didn't change his things
always remember that when you reading the stories of the NBA you know the story you will know Jonas gets out you know Musa will hit the sea will do something weird, you know that they didn't. They didn't move I stood there had no idea it was not next no idea.
He said in Nairobi, I have my Lord is on my side. I've done the right thing. Say headin He'll guide me somehow I don't know what's gonna happen. Maybe he tells me to fight around and die as martyrs. Maybe that's what even told me to do. I don't know.
But for us, we know the story. So it's easy. Simple, we can just tell the story.
To make things worse.
Right after a lot of die some narrations go as far as to say it was three days later.
Some say it was up to a month, seminary Tuesday was three days before they passed away. The Prophet Elise was brokenhearted. Then deja who got ill because of these three years of lack of food, lack of anything. She just got very tired, very sick. He's very skinny, lost a lot of weights. And she became ill and she died early Allah who I know Allah, she passed away. I can't start talking about that. No, because we're gonna give it a bit of time you have to talk about her Oh, the Allahu Anhu in a proper manner. So next week in sha Allah next Friday, Friday, we will start by talking about the death of Khadija and think about it now. Just just put this in your mind. The Prophet alayhi
salatu salam emerges from three years of boycotts, no new Muslims, Muslims have died. He is tired, exhausted, broken. His uncle who was protecting him on outside dies. And now Khadija, his wife, the first Muslim ever this very special individual passes away.
Why would this all happen to him it?
Can he catch a break? What Why can't you take a break? We'll look at his wife
had to catch a break Alia salatu. Salam? And where is that in tune from him? Where yada, yada?
And then what?
You know the things that sometimes people do when they feel that, you know, life is too difficult. So they turn to the sky and say why, and they wonder, and they object to Allah subhanaw taala. And none of that. But imagine his situation at least. So to sum the responsibility, he still has daughters at home. She left him her two children, she had children from different marriage, that were still living in his house. He has teenage girls and dislikes, how does this work? And it will tell them, it's gone. And there's no, there's no safety, there's no security, and there's no sort of law.
So think about that. And we'll continue to show next week. Isn't that the like the million dollar question? That's exactly what we're all looking for, at the end, trying to figure out how do we how do we stand by what we believe in, in a non uncompromising way, I think I think you need a couple of stuff. It's not enough for you to believe in it, there has to be some emotion invested into it. I think we've lost the love.
My diagnosis of the we've lost the love, we sucked out somehow, all the passion that existed within Islam, within telling these stories without knowing the prophecies. So somewhere in dealing with the Quran, it became a bit too mathematical, it became a bit too any practical. There's no investment of feelings. You see, the reason that they were able to persevere is they had love in their hearts. See, they loved the Prophet alayhi salatu was to them, they loved him unconditionally, and they loved Allah subhanho it and that love allows you to do see in life, there are two really strong motives, right? Hatred, love. Those two motives, basically fix everything, cause everything that you
see, if you hate someone enough, there's nothing that will stop you to try and get back at them. And if you love someone enough, there's nothing that will stop you to actually serve them. It really, it really comes down to these two really strong emotions. And maybe there are other other emotions that exist. But love and hatred are a big deal. And Islam is based on love, including them to hipbone Allah Azza, WA Buccola, there's an issue of love of loving Allah loving the Prophet Allah. So I'm loving this Deen. And that love is what is going to be your fuel. So persevering won't happen, if there is a platonic
relationship between you and the dean, where it's very mathematical and practical and very clear, and just all any theory, it has to be something, a part of you has to be invested in this, a part of you has to be in it. There has to be that emotion that really that.
That passion that like when I look at myself, I look around, it's just it's not there anymore.
Unfortunately, when it's when it is there, unfortunately, it's usually they're very, in a very ignorant manner. It's used to, you know, break things and causes chaos. But that's not what it's supposed to be there for. Is the NS love the profile, you saw this and that love caused him to continue to teach them until he was 90 something. He died giving a halacha. That's his love. He loved him. And he says he would he would keep on doing what he told him to do until he died.
They what they learned from him, it is something they continue to carry. That's what love does. It just you never you never stop doing what you know is right. And what you know, is, is going to please the one you love, I think that's something that we have to work on a little bit. And I look at my younger brothers and sisters, I understand. You're growing up in this culture in this part of the world.
It's not as easy to get exposed to this stuff and properly. So develop that that spiritual connection that love but if you don't,
I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I don't see how it could work. I know for myself, I don't know how it work. I don't know how any other way to do this. If you don't love it, if this is not something that you want to talk about, you want to spread you want to practice you want to do you want to defend if it's not an urgent side of you, just like if you were just see a loved one suffering that emotion inside of you to want to stand by them and protect them and carry them and help them that same emotion has to be in your heart towards serving Allah subhanaw taala. And that's how you persevere and it takes you and it takes you farther than you could ever imagine. You could
once you have that love in your heart, it'll take you farther than you ever thought you could you could go in your life and hope that that was a helpful answer. Any other comments at all?
Okay, he's not gonna like it. So Michael, you're handing Shinola to Greg or some other hotness Edna Muhammad in early your site because many Bartik Allah Feeco I said Allah who they come thank you for coming.
