In similar Ohio where hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen Allahu wa Salatu was Salam very kind of you know, Muhammad wa early or some of us may know bad luck, Alicia Muhammad for that. And the question is will be geared from my understanding and show towards the younger generation

00:00:13 --> 00:00:16

just so the older brothers and sisters don't get too excited on your anything.

00:00:18 --> 00:00:37

So where we are now in the seal of the prophets of Allah Allah He was like we said them are just emerging from year nine at the end of year nine. As we enter your 10 of his prophecies of Allah, how do you stop using them? It's almost we just recovering close to the half. We're in the middle point of the stories of his prophecy Alia salatu salam, which is

00:00:38 --> 00:00:39

pretty good.

00:00:42 --> 00:00:47

The boycott of the client of Hashem that went on for three years straight. That

00:00:48 --> 00:01:05

tired the prophet is thought to the Sahaba his family, me the relationship between the Muslims and Quraysh those who actually made the treaty pretty bad. The morale of the Muslims at the time as they are emerging from this three year boycott is pretty low.

00:01:06 --> 00:01:13

And the problem is Autocentre has to start thinking outside of the box. Guys just like coming up with a different plan. This is not working. He's he's been

00:01:14 --> 00:01:50

trying the same thing for the last nine years. It's only getting worse. And as he's thinking outside the box, I think it's awesome as he's starting to consider options of what he's going to do because McKees tried everything you can with Maccha he's spoken to all the leaders of what I used multiple times, and they're only getting more aggressive and they're only getting you know now they're talking about killing him again, Alia, stilettos and the idea of assassination resurfaces, what was the was the boycott ends, and to make things more difficult a baton passes away. And that was very difficult for the Prophet alayhi salatu salam to deal with I will talk to him his uncle.

00:01:51 --> 00:02:05

In many ways, I thought it was his father, the prophet radiosonde Sam lost his dad before he was born. Abdullah died and the rough idea Saddam is still in his mother's womb she was pregnant maybe a few months pregnant with him. And he was taken care of by his

00:02:06 --> 00:02:09

by his mother for a few years and then by his grandfather for a few years.

00:02:10 --> 00:02:45

And then from age nine forward to age eight, he lives with a well thought of in his home and it will taught him had received from his father, I need the advice or the or the request that I you know, before 100 McClellan before he passed away, he looked at I will tell him, I told him, I leave you Mohammed. This isn't a man I'm trusting you with Muhammad, take care of him. Use your he's your nephew. I know you have kids and I know you're busy. But you need to take care of him as if he's your one of your own. So we'll call him out of loyalty to his own father took care of the prophets of Allah he was I was in him and then points out all these all these actions of loyalty. And yeah, I

00:02:45 --> 00:03:19

need to throughout his life, I do salatu salam from him and from people around him, because he wasn't just a trait. It wasn't just an Islamic trait. So the trait of people who are noble, people have good ethics are people who are loyal. They never forget someone who did a good deed towards them. And that's something that we should all aspire to be, regardless of how how religious we are a hope doesn't matter. Being loyal, being able to always remember those who have done good deeds to you. So you'll always remember to repay them, to show them the kindness that they showed you when you are in need of it is extremely important. I thought it would pass away the Prophet it is not to

00:03:19 --> 00:03:26

suffer because of that it hurt. It's a different type of pain. By the way, I just talked about that quickly, to lose someone

00:03:27 --> 00:03:29

who's close to you, whom you love.

00:03:30 --> 00:03:59

And they pass away and they didn't pass away on a on good terms with with God as far as you're concerned. As far as you could see, we don't know. We don't know what's happening on the inside. We don't know what Allah Subhan doesn't to do with people your milk. We have no idea where people are going on the Day of Judgment. It's none of my business. I don't dare say where someone's going. Unless the Quran documents it for me. He's telling me that and even then I leave the Quran to say it's not my business. That's Allah subhanaw taala his business where He sends people your milk. But as far as we can tell you look at when we look at it from from a an apparent perspective, when you

00:03:59 --> 00:04:14

lose someone who's who's showing perseverance and performing their prayers, and they're close to Allah subhanaw taala you feel good. It gives you a good sign that inshallah they're going in the right direction, when you lose a family member. And it's not like that. It's a different type of sorrow.

00:04:15 --> 00:04:52

It's a different type of grief. I pray that none of you have to go through it. It's very difficult. Okay, we've experienced stuff like it's very hard to know that someone passed away you know, and Muslim, or passed away with no belief in their heart at all. When they go meet God that way. It hurts because you love them and you not only is it hard to lose them, but it's hard to lose them and know that they that the last minutes or the end of it didn't look too good. For the provider you saw to us that not only is he losing his second father, his uncle, the person who protected him and made sure he wasn't harmed person who loved him whom he loved. Not only the elite lose that person but

00:04:52 --> 00:04:54

you lose them on bad terms.

00:04:55 --> 00:05:00

Not being able to get that word from it hurt it's a different types of panel look when you go through his life I think I saw

00:05:00 --> 00:05:03

to some you find that he had to experience almost every type of pain possible.

00:05:05 --> 00:05:31

You can do it yourself and just kind of think about his life and go through it mentally on your own because you've heard most of the stories at least once or twice before, you will find that almost every type of pain known to man he had he had to experience audio stilettos and whether it may be physical or social or financial or any psychological guide to go through it. And then we had to give us the opportunity to see, to watch to observe how he would deal with all this Allianz salatu salam. So we lost a lot of that way.

00:05:33 --> 00:05:38

Some new agents say the next day some say a week later, some say a month, he would lose audio Sarah to

00:05:40 --> 00:05:41

his wife.

00:05:43 --> 00:05:46

For digital Cobra robiola, who died on our ba

00:05:47 --> 00:06:05

Khadija didn't have to stay inside the clan of many Hersham for the three years. She stood volunteers she stayed voluntarily. She wanted to stay with her husband. She didn't think it was proper for her to leave Maccha and Kure has told her you are anti machete 30, maca, Okoboji or the holy cave at

00:06:07 --> 00:06:08

what they either do, Nick,

00:06:09 --> 00:06:47

you can stay Muslim, do what you want leaves, stay whatever you want to do. It's fine. It's up to you. But she refused to leave, even though she could. She wouldn't because her husband couldn't. So she didn't have the Wi Fi network out of loyalty to him. But Khadija got tired, she got thin, she became very sick. And but at the end of the boycott, she was very ill. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was hoping that he was going to get better nourishment now that the boycott was over, and that would help her get back on her feet again. But it will thought it would pass away from here. In a very short period later before he was even finished grieving. The loss of Abu Talib Khadija on the

00:06:47 --> 00:06:48

law who had passed away

00:06:49 --> 00:07:16

the law who I knew would pass away and before she did you breed at a salon would would come to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the only time we have on record that he came to the Prophet saw there was no Quran. Whenever you believe you came, there was some Quran involved. He would teach him something would ask a question, there would be some dialogue. But there's always been an eye involved, that the Prophet Alia sought to someone's going to document and teach people to write down and no, but this time he came with no business with the Quran. This was a specific visit.

00:07:18 --> 00:07:40

This visit was specific for a different reason. All the other visits we have, you can always say well, he came to print Quran and talks about this issue as well. But to make this very, very important and significant, you breed was going to come with no Quran to make the visit extremely specific for one reason he would come and I thought was the prophets of Allah Hadees cyber Salam, and he would tell him, yeah, Mohamed

00:07:42 --> 00:07:45

Hadid Jetta Minerva Minowa, Bihar Salem

00:07:46 --> 00:08:31

give deja from Allah subhanaw taala Peace and blessings. So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam trenta Khadija he was very ill, it will say your Khadija in the Jibreel aka Ronnie and Allah you call it okie Salam. You tell them Khadija up just told me that ALLAH SubhanA senses loves peace and love to you. But the cool news of the Allahu Allah who has said women who said who I led up to Salah Allah subhanaw taala is a salaam used the peaceful or the the origin of peace depending on how you want to just send the name and from him piece comes and you can give myself set up as well. And then you'll be received to the portfolio site awesome. work better. And Allah Huber Shiro Hi Phil Jannetty be

00:08:31 --> 00:08:44

hustling FASAB la Sahaba fi wala nossob and tell her that Allah subhanaw taala gives her the good tidings of a castle in Jannah that is made of crystal

00:08:45 --> 00:08:51

empty crystal a crystal instead of having a brick, you have a piece of crystal but it's empty on the inside.

00:08:53 --> 00:08:54

And I could never figure out why.

00:08:56 --> 00:09:00

Why costume and possum just didn't make sense to me. And then it occurred.

00:09:02 --> 00:09:11

And then it occurred that 10 years prior to this. Now the low I have put up with the most bizarre story that a woman would ever put up regarding her husband.

00:09:12 --> 00:09:20

Her husband told her 10 years before that he was going to go and spend the better half of the month in a cave.

00:09:22 --> 00:09:23

He's gonna go sit in the cave.

00:09:24 --> 00:09:55

No one told him to. He wasn't running away from anyone. He was just gonna go spend time in a cave. And just spend time there because he had issues that you want to think about. He needed to meditate he needed to worship he needed to think and how do you align her being the woman that she was again, this story wouldn't be the same without her. Mark my words when I say that, that this story of the Prophet SAW Selim his life would not be the same had someone else been the second half of his life on a Tuesday and had to be Khadija had to be Khadija couldn't be anyone else.

00:09:56 --> 00:10:00

She said okay to that. Now all you should say okay, she will

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

to go and walk after him behind him when he would go and spend time in the get you to take food him

00:10:06 --> 00:10:18

and go spend a day or two and then leave them alone leave him do what he wants to do. She would participate but then leave give him his space so he could do what he wanted to do. And a key what is a cave besides a rock that is empty on the inside?

00:10:19 --> 00:10:40

Right what's the cave it's just rock this empty on the inside. And as you'll hear in her castle you'll Milcom is built from possum which is crystals empty on the inside. Lhasa fee he will no sub there is no there is no yelling and loud noises there. And there is no fatigue there either. Because Khadija Allahu Anhu on the other side of things, had a house full of kids.

00:10:41 --> 00:10:56

She had a house full of kids, she had two children of her own before her marriage of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and the forest children that she had from him from Allah, Allah who sent them and all the other orphans, the prophet Isaiah sawston had in his house, they go up to nine people in her house are the Allahu Anhu that she took care of.

00:10:58 --> 00:11:02

Who else does she have besides her children, she has her two kids, Helen Hynde.

00:11:03 --> 00:11:09

And she has done a good job. And she has a demon Hadith. And sometimes she has Jaffa

00:11:10 --> 00:11:45

these are all people living in her house that she's taking care of managing the yelling and the noise, managing the difficulty and the fatigue, the time she has to spend and the lack of sleep as he takes care of these people and the profit out of your thoughts and I'm just going on a mission that is that is literally an unimaginable. It's unfeasible to do what he did it he started to struggle with the lifestyle that he had. And she put in all that time, all that effort. She sacrificed it happily and quietly. So Gibreel came down and specifically for her came down just to talk to her just to let her know. Didn't have to she was gonna pass away in a few minutes. She could

00:11:45 --> 00:11:46

have been told this upstairs.

00:11:48 --> 00:11:50

But that way you and I would know about it.

00:11:51 --> 00:12:24

And what's the point of view and I if you and I don't know about this, don't understand that Allah subhanaw taala is watching your sacrifice. He's watching you put up with the difficulties that nothing is going undocumented that no difficulty is forgotten. That nothing that you are doing no matter how hard it is or how little people seem to notice it is not going unnoticed in his eyes supine which is to rest assure of that no matter how difficult it is you're suffering and no one seems to know you're suffering. No one hears it. No one sees it's not it's not celebrated. We don't and we don't spend time talking about Khadija we'll talk about him Salah How do you set up and

00:12:24 --> 00:12:54

everything he goes through her life was short. She didn't get to live that couldn't get to do his you know, she wasn't there on the day of whether to celebrate she didn't fight with him. I know how she would have but she didn't. She got to cut short and then she and she will she be forgotten is the question. Will everything she done be forgotten? No. You'd be will come specifically the only time they'll come without Quran just to tell this is a this teleca deja was waiting for her. Tell her about the castle this waiting for her Tell her was when Allah subhanaw taala has in store for her. So he did so Allah

00:12:56 --> 00:13:01

and Allah Hana would pass away. If ever there was a love story that's worth telling.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:09

Is the story of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam with Khadija she passes away. How long have you been married to her now?

00:13:11 --> 00:13:12

Anyone have an idea?

00:13:14 --> 00:13:14

Go ahead.

00:13:16 --> 00:13:17

Oh, come on. Give me a bit more than that.

00:13:19 --> 00:13:20

Well, but

00:13:21 --> 00:13:24

no, how old was he when he when he when he married her?

00:13:26 --> 00:13:27

He was 25 years old. He was you know?

00:13:29 --> 00:13:40

No. 40 is the day he got better. It's 10 years later. He's 50. Now, he's been married for today. To her for 25 years. They had how many children together?

00:13:42 --> 00:13:43

Let's see the trivia questions.

00:13:45 --> 00:13:54

Go ahead. Four girls. That's correct. And two boys and six children together. The last two of them.

00:13:55 --> 00:13:57

Look at couples who have lost children.

00:13:58 --> 00:14:36

It's very difficult to lose a child, especially if they're young. It's very difficult. It takes a toll on the marriage. 25 years being married six children lost two children together. Some Allah has said she passes away. He mourns her. He morons are like no one you'll ever see, mourn his wife. He wouldn't marry for years after by the way. When you're talking about the marriages that happened after Khadija they'll happen in a very squished period of time and Medina. Oh, and a very, very compressed period of time. And they were all they all had reasons we'll talk about that these these marriages after Khadija were the marriages of Mohammed the man. These were marriages of Muhammad,

00:14:36 --> 00:14:37

the prophets Allah

00:14:38 --> 00:14:50

as a prophet what he needed to do what he needed to do to elevate the status of women during his time, what he needed to do to bring people together. But Mohammed the man, the individual, the human, he only married one person.

00:14:51 --> 00:14:52

He married a digital the loved one

00:14:54 --> 00:14:55

and she would pass away

00:14:57 --> 00:14:59

and a year and a half later

00:15:00 --> 00:15:17

Hola takim, one of his relatives that he has talked to us, I'm gonna come to Him. And He will say hello to Allah. I find that there's a wedge, you should get married. We have a bunch of teenage girls in the house. You have it. And so you have all these children at home. teenagers. I mean,

00:15:18 --> 00:15:26

ask the poor souls who have teenagers at home. Oh, easy it is to do it. Yeah, teenagers at home, no wife anymore.

00:15:27 --> 00:15:53

And she and they would, and he would say, hold us telling us a story. And he said, I asked him this question. And then he responded to me and I wish I didn't ask him the question. I wish I didn't ask him because when he when I when I asked him and he responded, he got so upset. And he said do a whole bada Hadid determiner HUD and who could be what could I possibly marry after Deja? Kinda Tumelo Uriel orbital vaids She's the mother of my children. She took care of the household.

00:15:55 --> 00:16:01

00:16:03 --> 00:16:21

Alright, Michelle de la Juana. Yanni years later, would say in a very famous Hadith he would say I never got jealous from any of the other wives. Didn't matter to me. The only lady that was ever jealous was from Allah. It was a lady who died years before I even knew what the world was. Before I became Yanni and before I grew up

00:16:22 --> 00:16:29

hemraj Who should stay in Douala had to rub lady with red cheeks who had been in buried years before me

00:16:32 --> 00:16:56

So I said so he said I said something and he said you know something about God. He remembers Khadija somehow you always found some way to remember Khadija he said something about Khadija. So I he said Khadija Khadija ma Toledo Mina. But Abdelhak Allahu hyaluron Mina Why are you keep on saying Khadija you Allah gave you a better way for them Khadija

have to be what God wanted him to Allah makalah to mount to the Dalek. He said these words in the portfolio. So son got very upset. He said, No, I've never had anyone better than Khadija. She believed in me when no one else believed in me. She believed me when no one else believed me. She stood by me when no one else stood by me. She gave me her wealth when no one else gave me anything. And I had a family with her. I've never seen anything better than Khadija because he got so upset that I use that and I never said anything about Khadija after that ever again. Because whenever I did, he would get so upset. The whole Asia for COVID-19 I'm in Parliament, Allah them in Hoonah

00:17:58 --> 00:18:14

sleep and for customer who will call no sleep Sahiba Khadija, whenever I need food came as a gift to the house, he would take a piece of that meat or whatever, or dates or whatever it was, and he would wrap it up and he would send someone to take it to one of the friends of Khadija

00:18:16 --> 00:18:50

out of loyalty to her on the low on. She used to do that a lot. Whenever she had extra food, she was sent to her friends to the Prophet Alia sauce, and whenever you have extra food, you will send it to the same ladies. Once when they're coming back, they're coming back from a battle all the way back from a battle. And the Prophet saw those and looks back at the army at a time that he would not normally not do this. And say everyone just take take five, find a tree lie down or something. I need a bit of time here. So they do. And now they started some walks away walks a little farther away. So one of the Sahaba even though they were told not to follow Him, they follow

00:18:51 --> 00:19:23

the fold to see what he's doing. So they go and they find him. There. He taken off his garden and he put it on the ground and two elderly women were sitting on the border, and he's sitting in front of them and they're chatting and they're laughing. And they're so heavy standing from afar watching this. He waits for this Dan to provide results and comes back and tells him Okay, let's go. And he did this. I was like, Well, what was this? What were you doing? Are these like spies that you employ to give you information? Who are these people? I'm gonna tell our Aisha and he did he told me how he was right just like you're sitting with two women what's what's going on? And people are asking you

00:19:24 --> 00:19:41

a lot who are these leaders con Huda? Sahiba to Khadija they just had Aegis friends going on. Let's say that girl a urinal, Jamila, a Yamaha deja vu we're just sitting chatting about the good old days the days of Khadija he stopped an army

00:19:42 --> 00:19:45

till everyone take some time I need to I need to attend to something.

00:19:46 --> 00:19:59

He's sitting in his home Alia salatu salam, he's lying down. Now if you've been living in your house long enough, especially if you're a mischief, mischievous young men, then you know kind of whatever your dad is walking in the hallway over is your mother

00:20:00 --> 00:20:29

They have a squeaky footprint in the house like you know, based on how based on how the foot is slamming on the ground. You know who that is, if it's your dad, if it's your mother because you need to know you need time in advance to put away whatever it is you're doing and act like you're actually doing something productive. As none of you do that, that's totally me. But anyways, you all know the sound of it is very clear. So you would know whenever your dad walks in, so the prophet is lying down one day, and he hears footsteps

00:20:31 --> 00:20:48

he hears footsteps approaching the house. That sounds similar to the footsteps of his wife Khadija. So he sets up with a smile on his face, but it can't be Khadija because she passed away years ago. So he would say Hola Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola been to Hawaii did Khadija sister

00:20:50 --> 00:21:04

people were similar as people brothers they are the same similar, similar ways of walking. So he heard footsteps to similar to his wife but it couldn't be his wife obvious is not her. He said Oh ALLAH who would make it hurler then maybe behind at least her sister and it was still Allah.

00:21:06 --> 00:21:09

Even Even her footsteps he remembers Salalah adios.

00:21:13 --> 00:21:22

Go ahead and want to read Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream and all that garbage that they put in school? Fine. You think that's love? You think that's?

00:21:23 --> 00:21:45

You think that's worth something? There's Do you think there was romance? And there there isn't just a lie. You're being told a lie about what about how human emotions actually work? And how human relationships actually work? I feel bad, because we can't really change it unfortunately, right now. But that's the truth. When you read this stuff, it's all this is not right. This is not how human beings actually function.

00:21:46 --> 00:21:55

You want a love story. There's a love story show me a man who loves his wife after 25 years and six kids and two deaths among those kids who spent his years after that, just remembering her,

00:21:56 --> 00:22:10

making dua for speaking highly of her, telling people that no one has ever been like Khadija to me. No one, he loved her son Eliza, and she loved him back. And that love allowed Islam to exist today.

00:22:11 --> 00:22:14

You may say that's an exaggeration, I don't think it is. I'll tell you why.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:20

A miserable man at home is a failure of a man.

00:22:21 --> 00:22:40

If you're if you're miserable at home, nothing works for you outside the home, you can't get anything done. You can't ask men who are miserable at home, or who are happy and were miserable at some point. They'll tell you if it doesn't work at home, right? Happy wife happy life. Correct. So life works. That's how it works.

00:22:41 --> 00:23:08

If it wasn't for the love that existed between these two people, I don't think Islam would exist the same way. He couldn't have done what he did some Allah hottie assignments, he couldn't. And that's why it's important to remember this individual. She wasn't just a housewife, he was way more than that he was the first Muslim ever, the first person to ever accept this and the first person to put their head on the ground in su to Allah subhanaw taala after the Prophet audio Santosa if you remove the prophet as someone who you became to the first Muslim was a woman,

00:23:10 --> 00:23:44

she owned her own business, she employed him some allies, and then years before she was not a regular she wasn't. She was an extraordinary human being was in it with an extraordinary extraordinary vision of life and extraordinary ability to understand situation, assess them properly, and play her role and do the right thing. She wasn't the Prophet he was out of his sight to Islam. So she had to play her role. She had to take care of things for him. She had to be that support on the inside. So he needed support audience saw to him. He needs support on the site, double bottom. Now I thought it was gone. He supported aside though he's you know, he does gun.

00:23:44 --> 00:23:48

We'll talk about that in a moment. But he understood what her role was, and she did it.

00:23:50 --> 00:23:52

We're not all in the spotlight all the time.

00:23:53 --> 00:23:59

If you've ever been a part of a team means sometimes you're going to be playing the role that you don't want to play.

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

Is that what I'm saying? Sometimes you're the goalie

00:24:04 --> 00:24:05

might be a good goalie. When you're the goalie.

00:24:06 --> 00:24:41

Be the best goalie you can be. Make sure you try and get every ball you can. Because one day you'll be up front but now you're the goalie. So do your job now. Just play your role properly, within within your family, within your work within your studies, whatever you're doing, figure out what your role is, and then do it well. Just like a DJ did, she did. But the Allah who I know was a businesswoman. But when she married the profile of your Serato cinnamon, things changed. Now he's carrying prophecy. She had to play a different role. She left her business and focused this is nothing about telling women to stay home don't understand. That's not what I'm saying at all. I'm

00:24:41 --> 00:24:51

just saying babies don't leave sometimes we'll we'll deal you a hand and give you a role and it's not the most glamorous role. But if it's the right one to play, then play it.

00:24:54 --> 00:24:59

You see people don't do that are bad team members. And they don't you don't succeed in life. Someone will

00:25:00 --> 00:25:01

Only the whatever you wants to be,

00:25:03 --> 00:25:18

you will only be in the center only be up front only doing what he wants to do. Things don't work like that. That's not how an OMA succeed that's not our family and a unit nothing succeeds like that. People like that always cause failure. How did you know the Allahu anha

00:25:19 --> 00:25:20

was amazing in that way.

00:25:21 --> 00:25:25

She did what she needed to do, she supported him some Allah on your side, and then she passed away.

00:25:29 --> 00:25:33

On the other side, Alia salatu salam now has lost his two main supporters.

00:25:34 --> 00:25:42

His two pillars, the two pillars in his life, the person who took care of him outside and the person who took care of him inside the house. Now both gone.

00:25:43 --> 00:25:45

And when you think about it, why now?

00:25:47 --> 00:25:56

Why would they? Why would ALLAH SubhanA take them? No. Doesn't it make more sense for Allah subhanaw taala to take these two people after he succeeds? After Islam becomes

00:25:57 --> 00:26:05

powerful and successful and they're in Medina in the other country, then the Prophet of Islam can afford not to have these two supporters. But why now?

00:26:06 --> 00:26:14

It's like he can't get your break. This is the worst timing. I mean, anytime but now we just left the boycott.

00:26:16 --> 00:26:36

I just I just walked out of a boycott. They've been trying to kill me for three years. You take away we'll call him now how am I gonna protect myself? To make it worse you gonna take away? How do you do as well known now the love of your life who's not with you anymore? The lady will make everything work is not there by white wide. You may be thinking it is Allah. I love the Prophet alayhi salatu salam or is just what is this?

00:26:38 --> 00:26:45

Do we don't pay attention to that part. This is the type of problems and difficulties he ran into. So it was

00:26:46 --> 00:26:56

three years of no, no Muslims. The wealth has been depleted in his house in his life and the life of the Sahaba around them in three years. We'll call him dies, Khadija dies.

00:26:58 --> 00:27:22

What does he do? Where does he go? There's wisdom in all this. But at that moment, was he able to see the wisdom he was Alia salatu salam, what I'm asking you is, when you go through difficulties in life, and they do happen, may Allah subhanahu wa sallam say, I mean, if you see I mean, and then if you are given difficulties, may they be the simplest difficulties of all, for all of us, Allah who may not be too certainly not done.

00:27:24 --> 00:27:32

But when the difficulties do have, do you have the ability in the midst of it all, to still see Allah subhanaw taala his wisdom to accept to be able to move forward?

00:27:34 --> 00:27:52

Or will you lose it? You see the prophet Isaiah saw some years later? Now we can look back at that moment and say, Yes, I understand why I understand that. I've had to die. Because if you didn't, and the Prophet alayhi salatu salam had Islam succeed through the support of his family, Islam wouldn't be an international religion, it wouldn't be a family business.

00:27:53 --> 00:28:27

Islam would cease to be an international movement of reform, and will be stuck as a family business. That's how it succeeded the profit out of your Saddam had his family, protect them. And that's why Islam became strong. So now it's clear to me of course, of course, it will kind of have to move out of the picture that at some point, and the prophet Isaiah sought to somehow have to make this work without family support. You have to gather people from everywhere, and put them in one place, even though they weren't the same. They weren't similar. They weren't alike, and teach them to live with brotherhood, and then use that strength to bring back you had to do with Alia salatu salam? Now it's

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

clear to me.

00:28:29 --> 00:28:31

But at that moment, was it clear? I don't think so.

00:28:32 --> 00:28:50

You're not, you're not expected. When you're hit with a calamity in life, to be able to see the wisdom in it. You're not expected to do that. No one's asking you to be able to see the wisdom in a difficulty that you're going through right now. What you're asked to do is to accept Allah subhanaw taala as a doctor except his predestined

00:28:51 --> 00:29:08

choices for you just accept them. Live with the move with him trust him subhanaw taala which we'll talk about in a moment, but that's the way you have to think you see the Prophet he saw some lost everything almost within a very short period of time.

00:29:09 --> 00:29:11

It's as if to say to him so nice LM

00:29:12 --> 00:29:17

daddy who do depend on now you're depending on an alternative here. We'll take an alternative away.

00:29:18 --> 00:29:25

Okay, and depending on Khadija All right, we'll take the Joey Who do you depend on now? Yeah, Mohamed, Salah hottie who

00:29:26 --> 00:29:27

understand the answer.

00:29:28 --> 00:29:30

Who do you depend on now?

00:29:31 --> 00:29:59

You it's like a practical, he's been forced to answer this question practically. We can say it, but can you actually practice it? Can you be someone who in his heart only depends upon Allah subhana wa Tada. This is what Islam is about at the end. You want to break it down into something simple, comes down to that mentality, of really understanding what Tilak will means, which we'll talk about in a moment, is the probability of success and was stuck in a position where he had no one else to depend upon.

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

He's lost. If no one's there, no one taught him no wife, then who am I going to turn to?

00:30:06 --> 00:30:45

There's no rock anymore and you're standing, who's your rock. Some people here have a rock in their life, someone they can always turn to. Sometimes that rock is taken away. Now, no one told who Allahu Ahad Allahu Samad. It literally means that in Arabic, I swear, that's literally the meaning of a summit in Arabic, not a boulder. But the concept of having a rock, someone you can put your back to all the time, wherever you fall, they're there to catch you again, to ensure that you're safe to ensure that you're well, we all have someone like that the Prophet Alia saw this and had to come to that conclusion practically, that that someone was going to be no one, no one but ALLAH

00:30:45 --> 00:30:49

SubhanA wa Tada. It's difficult. It's not an easy thing.

00:30:50 --> 00:30:51

Let's talk about something.

00:30:55 --> 00:30:57

This is the one of the main

00:30:58 --> 00:31:00

concepts in Islam.

00:31:01 --> 00:31:11

If you ask me what the main costs of this are, I'll give you three or four things. And all my lists will always be topical. This word did not have a meaning.

00:31:12 --> 00:31:56

In the Arabic language that was used, before Islam came. And the word the root word Allah only had a few meanings. You know, there, the concept of Tilak cool, is an Islamic word. And there are stuff like that in Arabic, where the word doesn't really exist. In pre Islamic ages, the root of the word is there, there are some derivatives that are used. But the actual concept is not like duck Wha, again, Walk is a root. It's there in Arabic language is used in different contexts. But duck guano, this is an Islamic word. Tokuda was an Islamic word, it's an Islamic concept. If you can understand telecoil, then you don't need degrees in Islamic law, then you don't really need much coaching. It's

00:31:56 --> 00:32:14

this understand being able to understand it and practice it the proper audio some learn this. Practically, it had to be a practical lesson. It wasn't just what I'm doing right now. Few words and explain it to you. It was an issue of practicality, knowing there's no one else three things make a good.

00:32:15 --> 00:32:27

Three things, you have to do three things. First thing, you have to do your best in life, always. If you're not doing your best, if you're not pulling, you're all into a situation. And you can't use the concept of two or

00:32:28 --> 00:32:58

you can say total, you can't see it. It's not it's not proper, you have to put your full effort. You have to try your best, the best of your ability, you have to be trying really hard at least you got to sit back as a student and not study at all and then the night before your study for a couple of hours and say, No, don't, don't use that word. That is a rude use of the word. Not sure you don't understand what it means then, to welcome it would mean that you've been studying the whole time, you've been putting the effort the best to the best of your ability. You tried as hard as he could.

00:32:59 --> 00:33:07

That is the number one step in order for telecoil to actually be a proper concept. You have to try your best. That's number one. Number two.

00:33:08 --> 00:33:31

In your heart, you have to know that the only one who can produce any form of results, good or bad is ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada that results are from Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Who nothing that we do, nothing that we tried to do actually brings results we do our best, but what actually produces results? Is Allah subhanaw taala in our life, in our personal life,

00:33:32 --> 00:34:07

to actually get a result that's the work of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, you have to be dependent in your heart upon him. You see people do one of two things. Either we don't try our best. And we feel like we're not going to do well. So we say it's in Allah's hands. That's wrong. Or we studied really we do really well we study really hard we know the curriculum that the back of our hand, so we understand I'm gonna I'm gonna pass and fine. I know it all, depending on your knowledge and both is wrong. Both is wrong. The way the Muslim does it is that he studies to the point he knows the curriculum at the back of his hand, he enters the exam saying it's in their hands of Allah subhanaw

00:34:07 --> 00:34:36

taala whether I actually pass or not. And you may tell me Well, if I know it that well what's the point of tobacco? That's Islam. If you can, if you can understand this, you understand what Islam is. We'll look at the whole religion if you're gonna, if you can make sense of these two things together, which is not hard to think about a little bit, then you will understand what it means to be a Muslim. And understand that really, Allah subhanaw taala can change can alter results anytime you want. It's very easy. It's very easy.

00:34:37 --> 00:34:41

No, I know the things perfectly it's impossible for me to fail today.

00:34:43 --> 00:34:45

That's I'm a holla you have an accent on the way they don't make it.

00:34:46 --> 00:34:49

You don't write it and you're not granted a time to repeat it. You fail.

00:34:52 --> 00:34:53

You go when you have a panic attack.

00:34:55 --> 00:34:56

You go when you get ill.

00:34:57 --> 00:35:00

There's a million things gonna happen. There is an endless infinite

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

number of possibilities for things not to work out. Just like there's an infinite number of possibilities for things to work out.

00:35:07 --> 00:35:17

The results are in his hands upon in your heart, you have to know that there has to be a part of who you are. I know it's all in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala I just do my best. And the third part of to a good

00:35:19 --> 00:35:20

is acceptance.

00:35:21 --> 00:35:28

You must accept the result that is given to you regardless of what it is, whether you like it or not, doesn't make a difference.

00:35:29 --> 00:35:38

It's easy to accept the result you want. It's much more difficult to accept the result that you don't want to uphold means these three things all put together.

00:35:39 --> 00:35:50

That's what this is doing your best knowing the results are in his hands, and I'm fine whatever result he gives me. But yet what I want him to love I don't wanna get what I want hungry, I'll try again.

00:35:51 --> 00:36:25

I tried hard didn't work out I fell spot on my face and get up and try again. That's what Tawakkol means. That's the concept that we live by. This is this defines us as Muslims. We're supposed to be doing this has to be Allah Who am I lucky. This is basically an agreement. When you say that is one of the cards that you were supposed to make on a daily basis has to be Allah who I'm gonna keep Allah is Allah and eat and he is my is the best Joakim for me what kita means someone who is a guardian, someone who I can leave my affairs in their hands. Allah subhanaw taala orders you for who Akela take him as a guardian.

00:36:27 --> 00:37:01

And in Arabic countries if you go and you can give something called Ocala never heard of Ocala. So basically, it's when you entrust everything you own to someone else you want to leave, for example, you're going away to a different country back in the day before you could do everything online. You know, only 10 years ago, before that time you would have if you're going to leave the country, not sure if we're gonna come back, you would need to give the rights or the ability to other people to actually buy and sell in your name or take care of your affairs, how would you do that you would go to a courthouse and you would offer okay, that to someone.

00:37:03 --> 00:37:05

Basically authority upon my,

00:37:06 --> 00:37:18

upon my assets and what I own. When you offer someone Wakanda you're basically giving them control over your life, they can do whatever they want. So this person that you can offer, what gotta do has to be someone you trust,

00:37:19 --> 00:37:31

has to be someone with with wisdom, and experience, they're also go ahead and they'll use your they may not mean to hurt you, but they'll hurt you because they don't know what they're doing. So Allah subhanaw taala tells you what will mess you up will melt with him.

00:37:32 --> 00:37:51

Allah who, for TyLoo Akela he's the one who owns the east and the west, there is no deity but him he is the one that you should take as, as your Akela. So you say it has to be Allah Who and I'm going to look at your signing, your signing out, I'll guess I give, I offer that to you. You're going to me, my guardian,

00:37:52 --> 00:38:26

your authority of my life and is in your hands. But just like you're assigning, offering him that authority, you're also agreeing to something, you're agreeing that you're gonna try your best every time and that you're okay with the results. That's what typical means. You're up, it's in your hands, the results are all yours. I am fine with them. And from my perspective, I'll try my best he doesn't want to be your wikid if you're not going to try your best people will sit around and do nothing can't claim that they performed to equity, you can't claim it. It has another name they got to work with in other names as well. And other stuff to

00:38:27 --> 00:38:30

talk about is a very, very important cause. You'll find it as soon as the bottom

00:38:31 --> 00:38:34

I'll explain to you quickly just a few words no move on.

00:38:35 --> 00:38:41

Say Allah subhanaw taala tell us some thought I swear to you by the sky and the thought I thought What is it?

00:38:42 --> 00:38:47

Well now I feel like I'm a thought of what you know what the thought of is and nudging with

00:38:48 --> 00:38:50

the piercing star

00:38:52 --> 00:39:00

goes tell you a little bit of astronomy, and they are in the sky far away in many, many galaxies away we probably are supernovas.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:14

You just stars that at some point are gonna explode. And the amount of energy that comes from the stars is capable of literally burning to the whole galaxy to crisp within seconds.

00:39:15 --> 00:39:20

You don't know about how many of you sleep at night worrying about a supernova exploding somewhere

00:39:22 --> 00:39:42

or wondering whether we're going to one of the stars that are at the end of their life and they're expanding and they're going to shrink and then explode and destroy everything or a black hole finding its way to our galaxy and is sucking everything in. How many of you are I'm not I know I worry about a lot of stuff. I don't worry about that though. So Allah subhanaw taala tells you that the SUTA see what do you know have heard of a thought?

00:39:44 --> 00:39:59

The thought of can end you like this national stuff could be can pierce your world in seconds. In Kulu Neff sin LEM Alia half of every soul in this universe, there is one that is

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

Looking after it, there's watching it, that is taking care of it. That is protecting it half of

00:40:08 --> 00:40:43

you don't really control your life, you can't really protect every aspect of your life. You must know that by now. And if you're young too young to know that by now you should understand it's not to make you worry. It's actually to make you feel better. My life is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala he will allow me to live long live less, he's all his it's all I can control most of it, you would tell me you know what's going on the inside anyone you have your burger, you're the one who's explaining to your esophagus how to move. Now you're telling how your your stomach how much acid to put in there. You're telling your intestines how to do and what how much to take out of

00:40:43 --> 00:40:54

potassium and sodium and calcium and iron and, and where to distribute it. You're explaining to your liver how to break this stuff down and turn it into sugar. You're telling your heart how to pump and make sure it goes to your brain you have nothing you just eat,

00:40:56 --> 00:41:07

eat when we eat, we can do it properly. We're slobbering all over ourselves. We can't give it we have no idea what's happening on the inside. We can't control anything about how we can control what's outside, we can't control what's inside.

00:41:09 --> 00:41:18

What can we control is very, very, very small. You control your beliefs and your choices. You can even control your emotions.

00:41:20 --> 00:41:28

You can't even control your emotions. If you like someone or don't like someone, it's hard to change. You're stuck with this emotion that you don't even want to have, but you have it.

00:41:29 --> 00:41:39

But you do. You do choose what you want to believe. And then what you're going to do with that belief. So just do that. That's what's worthwhile thesis don't

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

don't don't lose sight of that don't lose track of that. It's way too big. It's way too big, just do your job is do your job. Which is the concept that DACA teaches us

00:41:53 --> 00:41:58

the 10th year because of the death of both Obatala lib, and Khadija was called the year of grief, I'm gonna

00:41:59 --> 00:42:11

imagine, imagine that the Sahaba actually gave this a name. I'm good. He's like, look at it. And I get notice how that actually gave this year of his life a name, we're gonna

00:42:14 --> 00:42:21

I think that a couple of years from now. When you go online to apply for anything, he's like, look, you're gonna apply for something buckle up.

00:42:23 --> 00:43:02

They'll ask you what year you were born in, and you'll be scrolling with 1999 2000 2010 2015 2019 and then COVID and then 2021 to that and this year is gonna be the year of COVID. And he went, what year were your your son born in? Oh, he was born in Corona. That's that's pretty much. That's all you need to say. This year, that's almost 2021 Eight the whole year. This is very rare. World Wars in doing this. Some world wars in this day long enough to defer the year to be known by that anybody that events. But this event was so bad to the point where this whole year will be known only recalled by COVID. That's all that happened from January to December. We're hoping it doesn't go on

00:43:02 --> 00:43:04

until September of next year.

00:43:05 --> 00:43:21

The profit it is thought to seven this year he was born it was called the animal feed wasn't given a number. Scholars had to go and scramble and figure out what's the number what year was it doesn't matter what time in the field. That's the year the elephants came to Mecca. And he tried to bring down the car but that's all you need to know.

00:43:23 --> 00:43:27

They called year 10. The year of grief. On

00:43:28 --> 00:43:38

this year of sadness of sorrow of tears, the prophit assault was on last, like no one else. People around him stood and watched him wondering how he's waking up in the morning.

00:43:39 --> 00:43:44

How did he get up every morning? Put a smile on his face, walk out and continue to perform dollar.

00:43:46 --> 00:43:58

How did you do? How do you take care of his kids at home? How did he become an angry person upset and frustrated an addict objecting? Not at all. We forget all this because he is so smooth.

00:44:00 --> 00:44:31

He just keeps on doing his thing. We forget that that's happening in the background. That's how good he is. That he is so good that you forget that all this happened. You go through his story. And this is completely unimportant is insignificant significant to us. Why? Because we forget that it happens because he's so good at making us forget it. Because he's so focused. He's so concentrated. He's always optimistic, always happy always moving forward. Some people in your life if they're if they're going through a difficult time, don't make sure you know about it.

00:44:33 --> 00:44:51

No, you have friends who will if they're if they're having grease colors, you're gonna have grief to you're going to be called every day and they're going to tell you for hours how hard it is and how difficult and how tired they are and how and how the property is thought to stem was Wallahi the literal opposite of that. He made us forget I feel ashamed of myself sometimes.

00:44:52 --> 00:45:00

Thinking about his stories and talking about remembering forgetting that this happened to him that your 10 was there that it was so hard that the Sahaba gave it

00:45:00 --> 00:45:18

name this is the year of grief. Good grief this year was horrible for him audio salatu salam, what more could happen to a person? How much more loss can one person because it's not over yet. You're thinking oh, it's a lot of money you know, it just never thought of an idea that I would. There's more this year gets worse

00:45:19 --> 00:45:31

if in your mind, okay, this is the worst that can get washed out of a boycott to everyone. There's no money, there's no more Muslims have a bottom is dead and they're talking about killing them again, nobody does that. No, he has no hope at home, it gets worse.

00:45:32 --> 00:45:34

It gets worse in his life. So

00:45:36 --> 00:45:50

and that's the beauty. That's the importance of learning his story. Because the lessons that are here you won't find elsewhere you won't find a story that is so rich. That is worthy of sharing, like his story is what was to them. So next time what we'll talk about we'll talk about

00:45:53 --> 00:45:54

this idea of tour.

00:45:55 --> 00:46:07

This I was revealed just around that time, I love this I listen to what it says he says, he says subhanaw taala to the broader audience was it was beer, you hook me up beaker, for in NECA bi unit

00:46:09 --> 00:46:24

says show perseverance. Until the time that Allah subhanaw taala once will come the time of victory, the time of of ease. Because you are in our eyes. In our eyes. This is a metaphor in Arabic. If you if you've dealt with an Arabic person at some point,

00:46:25 --> 00:46:26

I want this from you.

00:46:28 --> 00:47:04

Even better you and how are you going to bring a car with your eyes? You will not I don't want to connect with your eyes. I want it with bring it when you say better you and you and what you mean by that is I'm going to put it I'm going to put it it's so important. It is so precious that I'm going to put it inside my eyes to keep it protected for you. That's what you mean by that. That will protect it like I protect my eyes. It's just a metaphor. This metaphor is in the Quran as Allah subhanaw taala speaks to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam tells them Don't worry, just continue to be perseverant until the time comes for INEC RBI union, you are protected like my own eyes Subhan Allah

00:47:05 --> 00:47:24

Jalla Jalla Lula La ilaha illa are set a bit behind in Europe because he in a tomb I mean a lady for Serbia who were a devout on Doom, just keep on doing this and keep on doing your thing. Don't worry, just keep on going forward. Don't look back don't get distracted focus. We're protecting you. So the point of it is sought to sound would come up with an idea

00:47:27 --> 00:47:34

might get doesn't seem to be going anywhere but He is not listening. This is not working. So he thinks I'll try it.

00:47:36 --> 00:47:42

But if is a city very close to Mecca, I used to live in Mecca used to go to five beautiful city.

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

Otter green, unlike what you may think in that region, lot of green

00:47:48 --> 00:48:10

in a thought if or two large tribes belief in horizon, they are the only tribes in the region that are strong enough, powerful enough high status enough to compete with polish to the point where during the prophets unless alums youth they actually try to over

00:48:11 --> 00:48:22

overrun place to try to take over acaba that he brought an army. If you remember I told you the Prophet Allah has also fought fought with his people to defend Mecca. Who were they defending it from? From these guys?

00:48:23 --> 00:48:59

They tried and historically, they tried a number of times, they wanted to have that shut off that that that status, to be the people who take care of the Kaaba, do you want to take away from Polish, and they did. They had it for years before it many, many centuries before. And that's what I will say even keel was a very big name because he was able to bring back his tribe and remove everyone outside of Mecca and just leave for the descendants of his family and still be there. So there's this bad blood between the thief and who was in relation to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam is thinking of Quraysh won't protect me, just to let me say my message when I say when I speak, I just

00:48:59 --> 00:49:30

wanna I just want to be able to explain things to people. You don't have to accept I just want them to listen to me. I'm not being offered the ability they want to people want to kill me now. Why do they want to kill me because I want to speak? That makes no sense. I need protection. So he thought I'll go to the thief and how as and I'll ask them to protect me. Maybe they'll do it because correlation is their enemy. Maybe they'll do it. That was his. That was his logic. It assaults him at the time. It made sense. But it was 100 kilometers away. So it will do in sha Allah next week. He's I'll tell you the story of him going to a bar if just so you believe me that things actually

00:49:30 --> 00:49:38

get worse during this year. So this name that stands there, amen. Husband is a very worthy name for the year. I hope that was beneficial for you. So Bancolombia Hamrick, Shinola
