Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa sallim wa barik ala Nabina Muhammad on early your Sahib years remain of ad Zack we're looking at all of you for participating and I hope that was.

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

That was fun.

00:00:13--> 00:00:15

So, last last week

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

I started talking about I'm in prison or the year of grief. In 10th. Year of the prophets of Allah Allah. Prophecy.

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

Year of grief happened right after the prophet Isaiah

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

ended or left the boycotts. From year seven to nine, three years, the Muslims were stuck in decline of Hashem between the two mountains and literally couldn't leave, no one could enter. They starved the they suffered, and very few people accepted Islam. In the meantime, you're number 10, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was able to leave that the boycott ended only for his uncle Abu Talib to get very ill and passed away.

00:00:55--> 00:01:02

And for him to lose, Alia salatu salam, all the support he had outside of his home. And then a few days later,

00:01:03--> 00:01:34

Khadija de la Juana Cobra would pass away as well breaking his heart some of the Hadees I miss him losing his wife, the support he had inside the house. And now it is salatu salam was looking at it looking down in a very grim tunnel of what the next the next couple of months was gonna look like. And if that wasn't enough, if 93 years of boycott, the death of his uncle, and the death of his wife wasn't enough, the bravado sought to ascend was still looking forward to at least a few more difficulties. As I told you prior,

00:01:35--> 00:02:01

once that will die to die, the prophit of Sato said and this is a Hadith that you can find on your mind that when you're Quraysh had to fear I will tell him I never really got harmed by what he untellable thought of died. And we had talked about years and years of persecution. But apparently all that doesn't add up to what actually happened later when he passed away. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam began to hear with his own ears, the plot of his own assassination, they would say it to him, they would walk by and say things.

00:02:03--> 00:02:34

You would walk by and say rude things or say stuff like, yeah, the day will come when you know, you'll be sleeping and you don't wake up stuff like that, you would hear it on your Serato serum. So he came to the conclusion that now I'm staying staying in Mecca wasn't safe anymore for him. And it didn't look like things we're gonna we're going to get any better. And he had tried everything he could with people of coloration didn't get anywhere. So we start to think what I need to look elsewhere. I need to broaden my my, my search. So the idea that came to him out of your salatu salam was to go to PA if I told you last time that Athena is close by city to MCC, if you ever go to

00:02:34--> 00:03:11

Mecca, it's only like an hour away by car. It's 100 kilometers, almost something like that. And it's a very beautiful city, by the way. And it was it was habited by by by two of the strongest tribes in the in the region that tried to compete with Polish in terms of status and belief in houses and and actually they they actually rated Mecca once in the past and the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam was young, they tried to overthrow erasing removed them from makin take over the Kaaba themselves. So they would be the highest status tribes of the land, but they failed. There's a lot of competition and bad blood between faith and horizon and holidays. So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam

00:03:11--> 00:03:43

thought that maybe if he goes to them and asked them for protection, what he's seeking is protection out of them, just that no one kills him. Sometimes when you see the seal, you don't really realize what he's trying to do all of your thoughts and you get caught up with the battles, you understand that the value of one and only request throughout his life was to be allowed to believe and speak freely about his belief, and for others to be able to do the same. That was the only group quest he had. That's the only thing he wanted. And he was denied that for the majority of his life.

00:03:44--> 00:04:17

He just asked for the right to be Muslim, and to explain Islam to others, and if others want to accept it, then go ahead. Never was a human being forced into being Muslim ever. During his life, it is tough to say no. If Mistakes happen later. That's a different story. But Islamically that is never the case. No, you there's no point of someone accepting being Muslim against their will that is called the *. That's like worse than being an unbeliever. So no, no, no, no one wants you to be a Muslim against your will. So the malleus was the only thing he was trying to get was doubt rates, that ability to speak openly. So he wanted protection. They're telling you, they're trying to

00:04:17--> 00:04:34

kill him. Now, again, assassination is in the air. So he's looking for protection. So he decides that he's going to try and he's going to try to live. So what does he do? Now if he takes with him Oba Koroma, it's gonna be very obvious that he's going on a formal visit. He doesn't want Croatian about this.

00:04:36--> 00:05:00

If he's on his camel as he leaves Mecca, is going to be obvious that he's going a far distance. Or she's gonna start asking questions. You see, they're watching him all the time. They're always eyes and spies, keeping tabs on what he's doing on his salatu salam. So he needed to be very, very discreet about this. He has to go to pipe and come back with old age knowing that he went and came back that's that is very essential. That's very crucial for this to work because of

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

Quraysh knows that the private as well is going to to seek protection from or that he went at some point, it'll be very difficult for him to continue to live there safely. So you don't want them to know.

00:05:13--> 00:05:49

If he takes over Kurama it'll be too obvious he's going on a formal visit somewhere so you couldn't take it all back or armor. If he's on his camera leaving he's going far distance people are gonna wonder. So what does he do? He takes Zaid Zane even how they thought was like the sun as I said prior to any of the Tibetan the being Hara meaning taking the name of someone who's not your father being haram. He was called Zaidi bin Mohammed, even though the Prophet Alia started him is not his biological father, but he was as much as a father as anyone would be to a son. So he took their aid and they walked out of Mecca with some food, what it looked like decorations that he's going on a

00:05:49--> 00:05:49


00:05:50--> 00:05:55

Just taking Zayn and just walking towards towards some of the valleys where you can spend some time.

00:05:56--> 00:06:02

So the spies are watching him out here. Salatu Salam, they report back yeah, he just took say they took some food and they went over to this valley

00:06:03--> 00:06:10

on foot. So obviously they're not going very far. I mean, how far can you go on foot, but 10 kilometers.

00:06:12--> 00:06:14

He went 200 kilometers on a Southwest when

00:06:15--> 00:06:21

he walked to a park from Mecca. It took him four days 25 kilometers a day.

00:06:23--> 00:06:27

Taking Zetas he was pretty young at the time. Still in his early teens are the hola Juan

00:06:29--> 00:07:06

he did all this just to make sure they did things right. That he was discreet, and that people wouldn't figure it out. And they didn't. It succeeded. But imagine he walked 100 kilometers on it. So it was to them. When you hear these stories about know the amount of of different the nature of the difficulties he took upon himself Alia salatu salam, just in order for Islam to spread and for us to be Muslims. It's sometimes it's humbling. The point we're trying to make is very humbling. I mean, I what how far through how many steps do you do? Now we have these little things that tell us how many steps we make. So we make enough steps today. He's gonna walk 100 kilometers Alia salatu

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

salam you take with him, Zaid.

00:07:09--> 00:07:43

It's a huge risk. If this doesn't work out, it can be catastrophic. His reputation his existence in Mecca will be threatened if Christ figures out that this actually happened. But he takes it out of your solitude and he calculated the risk seemed that it would be reasonable to do if he gets to protection. That's a big win for him. He can now speak openly. You can go around Arabia speaking about Islam no problem. Qureshi wouldn't dare harm him because they go there'll be asking for a war with with it with two huge tribes. There's no There's no incentive and that there's no good there's no goodness in that.

00:07:44--> 00:07:45

If it works out.

00:07:46--> 00:08:23

Now, the leaders of Bife are three brothers, Three brothers, I have a Dr. Leyland Miss Odin, have you not been Abdullah? It doesn't matter. It's an issue of genealogy. You have three brothers who, who basically rule rule the city, they're very high status and very respected. So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, his plan was that he was going to walk to a live now of course, he wouldn't know exactly what where he went to because he was on foot and no one's going to suspect that he's going to walk 100 kilometers, that's unheard of no one does that, except him is allowed to stay on for days and make that make that walk, go to them, and then ask them to see if they would offer

00:08:23--> 00:08:24


00:08:27--> 00:08:32

So he goes, this is probably one of the most difficult parts of the sealer of the prophets of Allah. He's

00:08:34--> 00:08:35

in every in every human

00:08:37--> 00:08:45

story. We all have storylines, right? Everyone is the is the star of his own movie. You're living your own storyline.

00:08:46--> 00:09:19

Right? And then you have all these characters in your life around you that matter. And they come in and out. But you're the star of your own movie. And you're living this storyline of yours. Every storyline, regardless of who you are, where you come from, what type of life you're living. You have, you know, peak moments you have really low moments. When he was asked to like his salatu salam, you know, I asked him what was your lowest moment after he laughed at her? It wasn't my lowest moment. Because I tell you the story of how do you like this isn't just devastating. Hamza died, Musab died, I can count at least 12 other other Sahaba he fell into a hole he broke his tooth

00:09:19--> 00:09:37

he bled diffusely for half an hour. He couldn't stand straight anymore. He was scarred physically for life after it was a defeat. Horrible, horrible day, horrible day and by any measure. So everyone thought worst day of his life. said no, my lowest moment was was life. My lowest moment.

00:09:39--> 00:10:00

Just to think sometimes Yeah, in your life. What was what was your lowest moment? Did you have one? What was it like? What would you do when the next one comes by? How do you deal with these moments? How do you how do you respond when you feel like you're losing everything? How do you respond when you feel like you have no idea what the next step is going to look like? When you feel like every time you try some

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

Don't think it doesn't work out, what do you do? What you're gonna do is you're gonna do exactly what he did sort of lies, or else there's no point of hearing these stories. The only point of listening to his stories out of your salon to a salon is to that once we are confronted with similar situations, we respond similarly to the way he did it. And that's the point of all these stories, so that we can live a life similar to the way he lived his life.

00:10:23--> 00:10:31

So he goes to these three brothers, he asked permission to meet them. So they said, for those who comes in Alexandra to introduce themselves as the grandson of Abdul Muttalib.

00:10:35--> 00:11:06

He was recognized immediately I thought it was a very known figure. So he explains to them what Islam is, this is what this is all about. This is my message. These are my teachings. This is what I want. This is what I'm calling people towards. These are the values that I carry. I am seeking your protection. I'm not necessarily seeking even your Islam you can say I don't want to be Muslim, that's fine. But I'm asking you, if you will offer me Are you out your protection just allow me to speak freely, because Quraysh my family won't allow me to speak freely.

00:11:08--> 00:11:24

So they responded to him son Allah honey Salam, you will never find in his clsm Allah Azza wa sallam respondents responses that were worse than these three responses. The worst three things that were ever said to him, it assigns them to his face in his life, where these three things sat down.

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

So the first one

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

he looked at him and he said this

00:11:31--> 00:11:43

fall over whoo whoo Jeeva rasool Allah SallAllahu Sallam I don't know I named him Islam Allah Tala. I mean who you are for Tala Amma, why God Allah Who hired on Minka Leo sila Hoon every year

00:11:44--> 00:11:52

as Allah subhanaw taala found no one better than you. You're the best he could find to be sent to to send a Prophet salallahu Alaihe salam to His face.

00:11:54--> 00:12:10

How do you start to Islam the one who will carry the one hand Yeoman piano, the one that will all go to in the billions of us asking him to intervene, intercede so that we can Allah subhanaw taala will start judgment. He is the one who will prostrate under allah subhanaw taala his throne

00:12:11--> 00:12:23

and Allah subhanaw taala tell him Ishfaq to Chef ourselves daughter ask what you want, intercede on behalf of whoever you want and I will listen to you so Allah How do you say to them? He sits in front of people who tell him he didn't find anyone better than you.

00:12:24--> 00:12:32

So the profile is awesome doesn't respond to it looks to the second person hoping maybe for a better response Bacala Wallahi know what a two car

00:12:33--> 00:13:10

stereo cavity to someone that can be your muscle doctor. I saw you holding on to the to the curtains of the Kaaba swearing by Allah subhanaw taala making every oath under the sun that you are a prophet I wouldn't believe you said Allah Allah. He was like you said no. So he turned to the third person. So the first third person said Eman Nick Asada, when it be Yun Fanta Alba movement and Luca Lemak. Negative Varun for and Apollo and Oka lemak either you're truthful and you're a prophet. So you're too high for me to speak to you. Or you're a liar which means you're too low for me to speak to you either way, I'm not speaking to you. So Allah Hadees like you said

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

he's the responses he got from these people

00:13:15--> 00:13:16

for Carla even

00:13:18--> 00:13:19

to Bureau and near coalition

00:13:20--> 00:13:30

said Alright, fine. That's how you feel about it. Don't Don't tell folks that I came here for a second alpha Risa leovera Whom you already sent the person

00:13:31--> 00:13:59

he's already on his way, but he will know before you even make it back to Mecca. So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam was saying even though only on sort of Alright fine then at least let me leave for cannula had done he might also be an Anna will Hillman enter also for her for your moon tube. No, you won't leave until we gather all the children of life. So they can throw stones that you as you leave, you're going to leave that's how you're going to leave life. And that's how we like to talk of Salah is like

00:14:00--> 00:14:05

he would walk out with Zaid Bin harissa right beside him in his early teens

00:14:07--> 00:14:42

and they were throwing rocks at the Prophet Alia seducing them yet Adama who Sharif attack until he was bleeding from his feet. He was just he was just his blood. The whole is Aiden for going to other hour see? Mr. Marazzi Rasulullah Ali Asad Islam, they the Prophet Allah is also trying to protect Zaid and Zaid is trying to protect the prophet Ali Assad was and putting trying to put his head beside the head of the Prophet so if they throw a rock and a history is cut, it's aimed at the profit so I sell them as Rocket hits his head before it hits him at the profit. So I said his head it hits his head before it hits the head, the profit audio so it was so the both walking beside each

00:14:42--> 00:14:43

other. Each one is trying to protect the other.

00:14:45--> 00:14:48

And by the time they leave, they get out of the city of above the walk outside. They're both

00:14:49--> 00:14:54

bruised and bleeding. As he does as well. It hit salatu salam.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

Now you may think this was the worst day. That's what he meant. No, he wasn't talking about that.

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

He wasn't talking about that he's talking about a little bit later.

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

But imagine, imagine if he was your dad. So

00:15:08--> 00:15:16

now you know this happened to your dad, your father, your biological father, someone came and told you, that's what your dad did in order for you to be able to, to be who you are.

00:15:17--> 00:15:48

In order for you to be the Muslim that you are to have your name to be the person that you are right now. How much would you love him some advice, and I want you to love your father for that. If I told you that, that's what your father did. That's why they loved the money. So to say, this is why they felt towards him the way they did, because of the sacrifices that he offered. Because of how selfless he was during these types of moments. He didn't ask for anyone to come and go with him. He didn't ask for anyone's sympathy. He didn't ask for anyone's empathy. He didn't ask anyone for anything. He did what he did, because he felt that he needed to do it. Because it seemed to him to

00:15:48--> 00:15:58

be the right thing to do. But so far, was a thought if in your eyes a successful any adventure or a failure of a one.

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

Is it okay to say this was a failed adventure?

00:16:03--> 00:16:09

Yes, it's okay. It's fine. Doesn't doesn't take down from the status or the installer to say I'm at all failing, doesn't bring down anybody. By the way.

00:16:10--> 00:16:48

No one fails and then is looked down because they feel no only those who accept it. And stay down. And never try and get up again. Never try and push forward again, and never give it another shot and never learn from their mistakes and failures and then become successful. Those are the ones who should be reminded. But failure in no way never has failed or been a reason for you to be looked down on or for you for anyone to think less of you because he failed on a thought was and this was the plan he got he went there. It completely crushed. It did not work. Not only that did not work. It backfired big time. Now Qureshi knows, you see you're not thinking about that. You're thinking

00:16:48--> 00:16:51

about the Bloods. And he's thinking about Quraysh knows now.

00:16:53--> 00:17:10

You see that? You're thinking he was hit with with stones and rocks and he's bleeding. But in his mind, how do I get back into Mecca? I have a I have a 1415 year old boy with me. How do I get him back home? I just I brought him with me now how do I get him home? And now he's what what do I do? How is how is this serving Him?

00:17:13--> 00:17:15

But it completely didn't work. And it completely backfired.

00:17:16--> 00:17:32

So he goes out to salatu salam and he sits under a tree just outside of life after all that is over to rest for a moment, are you salatu salam. Now mind you when you sat down, I'm pretty sure there's a little bit of a flashback of the last maybe two to three years.

00:17:34--> 00:17:35

Three years of boycotts.

00:17:37--> 00:17:45

A complete disaster and then after that, we'll call him dies. And after that Khadija dies, and now this complete humiliation,

00:17:46--> 00:18:07

physical, financial, social, political, complete humiliation, everything went wrong. Not only that, now he has his adopted son with him that this is a problem. I mean, if his if he left him in Mecca, that would have been better for him. But I'm glad Jake was with him because they told us a story. You wouldn't have this story if it wasn't for Zaid to tell us what happened. Well, the Allahu Allah

00:18:09--> 00:18:37

sitting there, completely humiliated. No one left for him in the world on a hillside to some literally nothing left for him. Nothing. He has nowhere to go. He can't enter Mecca right now. It's gonna be a problem entering Mecca is maybe a completely different issue I was gonna get in, after they know that he went to this completely failed. He's bleeding. He doesn't have his wife is dead, his uncle's dead. It's just the lowest moments, one of those low moments. So he's just there on a salatu salam.

00:18:38--> 00:18:39

And what's the first thing that he does?

00:18:44--> 00:18:57

The first thing that he does is he makes this door this door is universal. Everyone knows this job. I want you to listen to it for a moment. It's not really a dua it's not really any supplication. Something difference, they call it more Nyjah

00:18:59--> 00:19:39

when you kind of call upon Allah subhana wa Tada. It's like, what are you did? When he says Robbie must send your door? It's really hard. Yeah. Well enter hamara who made the most merciful but this is this is really hard. He didn't mean didn't ask for anything. Actually, what he says at least Allah to Islam is of extreme importance for us to learn Listen to these words, say in Arabic, it's meant to English says and believe me now, scholars over the years I've talked about the authenticity of this hadith but all of them even when they talked about the authenticity will say these words could not have been said by anyone except a prophet so possible. It's possible to put these words

00:19:39--> 00:19:53

together if you weren't Yanni. That's why this this hadith is accepted by the way worldwide like even by scholars were extremely strict with with authenticity. They're fine with this one. It's like the exception that they make Allahumma ileka A school.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

Boy I thought to what he will kill letter he'll it will hurt Ernie

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

Elena's Oh Allah to you, I raised my complaint, my sorrow, my pain,

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

of the weakness of my strength

00:20:09--> 00:20:11

and the scars of my resources

00:20:13--> 00:20:15

and the lack of respects that people have for me.

00:20:17--> 00:20:38

I don't have strength. I don't have people to defend me. I don't have resources to use, and I pay apparently no one respects me. I have been 90 people, they throw rocks at him as he's leaving your stand with that. Do you imagine that for a moment? Now you're someone walking and people yelling and chanting and screaming, throwing rocks and what does that

00:20:39--> 00:20:43

mean? Just imagine it sallallahu alayhi wa sallam walking here and say trying to

00:20:44--> 00:21:10

hurry quickly and protect one another as aid was bleeding from you know from his head. He he caught he got one in the head and he was bleeding. It was horrible. But before the earliest sources, and even tended to his wounds, before he tended to his wounds before he looked for any water or four or some or something to stitch it up. Before he did that. The first thing he does, he sits down and he makes this drop first. You have to do this first.

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

So he says oh Allah to you. I raised my complaint. My sorrow, my pain, my weakness, lack of resources and lack of respect that I have.

00:21:22--> 00:21:34

Yeah, I'll hammer Rahimi and tabouli Mustafa fee you know interrupt be, oh the Most Merciful of all those who are merciful. You are the Lord of all those who are weak. And you are my Lord.

00:21:36--> 00:22:12

Ila men to CUNY. Whom do you put my matter in the hands of Illa Eden Yetta. Jehan Mooney to someone who is far away from me, not related to me, who will mistreat me? He's referring to what happened right now. But if I'm in a hurry, Ben molucca. Who Emery or are you gonna put my hat my matters in the hands of a relative of mine? Who rules my affairs? He's talking about what I mean. I'm in between these two problems. If I go to someone who's not unrelated and faraway, they mistreat me and if I go to my relatives and for those who are my blood, they ruled me and they tried to control me.

00:22:14--> 00:22:16

In La mia can become

00:22:17--> 00:22:25

Isla Yeah, hold on one. fella. Uber early. Wala kin Thea ticker. Oh, Sara Lee.

00:22:27--> 00:22:30

If you if there's no anger from you upon me

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

that I'm okay with all this.

00:22:34--> 00:22:37

But I asked for your Alfia when I asked for some ease,

00:22:39--> 00:22:50

doesn't say ask he just states I have yet to come. I've yet to go Oh, Saudi. Your IV is wider. It can easily encompass encompass everything. And then capacity as well.

00:22:51--> 00:23:28

You see what his interest is, in Alia, salatu salam ala, as long as this is not evidence of your of you being angry or upset with me, and it's okay. If this is a problem that I need to know, I need to know what I did wrong so I can fix it immediately. So I can repent and come back to you yo, Allah, I can do it right now. If what happened to me right now is somehow a punishment for a mistake and telling me the mistake so I can repent. And if it's not a punishment for mistake, if you're not upset with me, and this is just the butter. This is just the difficulties of life that you're giving me that I'm okay with it all. His interest or You're seducing him is not that this is what needs to

00:23:28--> 00:24:04

be relieved immediately. He's interested in why why why you're a boy. I am the only person who cares about you on this earth right now. What else wasn't enough? Three years of bike boycotts wasn't enough my uncle died non Muslim even to make it worse. And my wife is dead and no this why me? None of that none of that garbage. Stockwood Allah, none of that. None of that stuff that many, many of us see, at moments when we feel weak return wondering Why Choose Us? Why not someone else? Look at the other people they seem to be living good lives. They don't seem to have these problems or these illnesses or these shortcomings or these difficulties.

00:24:06--> 00:24:16

That wasn't an interest at all. Obviously. His interest was I just want to make sure you're not upset. I just want to make sure that what happened wasn't somehow your wrath

00:24:17--> 00:24:42

or your anger. If this was just an example, a trial one of those tests that I'm fine, but you're up you're off here. There's so much wider it's so much bigger, you're off you're so much bigger IVs ease he is healthy, opposite of an illness. IV as well. Opposite of poor poverty IVs ease opposite of difficulty

00:24:45--> 00:24:47

or who be newlywed chic.

00:24:49--> 00:24:56

A lady the shopper to the Hulu Matt was saleha Ali he Amuro duniya Well, Akira

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

and yen Zilla via Facebook

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

Oh yeah, Hilla la sahak. I seek refuge

00:25:06--> 00:25:08

in the light of your face

00:25:10--> 00:25:11

that lit the universe

00:25:13--> 00:25:19

and fixed every broken thing in this dunya and akhira I seek refuge in the in the light of your face.

00:25:20--> 00:25:41

That's your anger and wrath never come upon me. And that you never punish me in this dunya for a mistake I made. I'm seeking refuge and you just never punish me. Never, never be angry with me to the point where something bad happens always forgive me always, always tell me prior, give me a chance to repent, give me a chance to be better. Don't punish me in dunya for mistakes that I make.

00:25:42--> 00:25:43

Like a

00:25:44--> 00:25:45


00:25:46--> 00:25:58

You may remind me of my mistakes, you may remind me of my mistakes, remind me of my shortcomings. When you see me as much as you want until you're happy until you're satisfied with me.

00:25:59--> 00:26:12

You may continue to remind me of every shortcoming that I've made to fix until you are satisfied with a hole or whatever Quwata illa brick and there is no strength and there is no ability in this world except through you.

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

Set Allah Allah Who earliest like Mr. Lim, there is a lot that he made. Well, no one but a prophet could say these words. Not because of you know the beauty of the lingo linguistics, which is one thing, but because of the moment,

00:26:27--> 00:26:33

the moment he was in only prophets in a moment like that. Could think like this.

00:26:35--> 00:26:39

Are those who follow in their footsteps Salalah alayhi wa salam O Allah him as many

00:26:40--> 00:26:47

people like prophets, who can think in moments so dark, so low, where everything has been lost,

00:26:49--> 00:26:50

where there is no light,

00:26:51--> 00:27:07

where the tunnel is pitch dark, and I cannot see anything coming from the other side, I cannot see the light at the end of it. I can't even imagine it. I thought in low moment where you feel like there's nothing left for you. You turn to God, and you just raise your concerns. See,

00:27:08--> 00:27:09

this is hard.

00:27:11--> 00:27:40

It's okay to say that, you know, it's very difficult. I am struggling with this. I am finding this extremely hard to accept it's difficult, most important to me that you are not upset with me that this is not your wrath, as long as you're happy with me as long as you're giving me next chance. And I will be able to repent. And I'll be able to please do that and that everything is okay. But you're up I need some ease. I'm looking for ease. That's all. And a moment of the lowest moment you need to say those stuff. They have to come from the heart.

00:27:44--> 00:27:50

When things got really bad in 2000, at the beginning of June, just before I left Syria, when it got really bad.

00:27:51--> 00:27:52

I remember

00:27:54--> 00:28:25

we were on our way to the hospital one day to work. And the bus had to stop because there was a there was something up front. I can't remember whether it was like the army fought group and there are people dead on the streets or there was a bomb that I can't remember anymore what it was, but we got to stop. I remember they were carrying deceased ones. I heard people saying stuff that day. I'd never I'd never heard before in my life. I had never heard words of objection and rudeness towards Allah Subhanallah like I heard that day.

00:28:27--> 00:28:41

And what people were saying as they were walking with their, and I sometimes I dream of it. It was so difficult to hear. Just to hear these things. People had died and it was devastating was horrible. And there's nothing worse than then losing loved ones like that.

00:28:43--> 00:28:47

But people responded to it. They didn't. It's scary.

00:28:48--> 00:29:07

Scary, you see? Just because you didn't do it before. Just because what I'm saying you've never done doesn't mean that the potential of it happening isn't there? Am I making sense? Do I understand what I'm saying? Just because you haven't done it yet? Doesn't mean that it can't happen. You see,

00:29:08--> 00:29:19

not all of us go through the same types of tests. You see the trials of life what they do, is they they shake you to your core and they bring out everything that's inside

00:29:21--> 00:29:30

trials of life expose us they expose who we really are. If you live a life of complete ease, no one really knows you. This is not why when

00:29:32--> 00:29:59

Tom in the famous and he story told someone who said they I know him. He asked him Are you his neighbor? Did you get to travel with him? Did you buy and sell and then you don't know him? Because it's only life trials that will expose people expose their their true, your true colors won't really show unless you go through difficulties. That's why when I'm telling you that was important, you may say that I don't need to know this because hamdulillah Jonnie financially well off and you don't know what life I asked Allah

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

Don't tell him to grant you if you say, I mean, I said a lot I hear for everyone that no one goes through difficult difficulties. But that's just not how life works. If I'm only lying to you, if I tell you that's how it's gonna work, it's not gonna, that's not gonna work. It's a roller coaster. That's how life that's how life is.

00:30:16--> 00:30:33

And Sometimes life hits hard and exposes weaknesses. And it exposes insecurities, and exposes doubts in the heart that comes out and it doesn't look good. When it does. Prepare yourself now during the times of ease hamdulillah the stomach is full, and the body is closed.

00:30:35--> 00:30:36

And the body is healthy.

00:30:37--> 00:30:48

Prepare yourself, spend all the time that you need, learning and connecting with Allah subhanaw taala so if a moment of difficulty presents itself, you're ready, you can say that

00:30:49--> 00:31:08

because the Prophet alayhi salam, he said that to me, out of all the things that happened, his prophecy this stands out, this stands out for me. You can choose what you like in his in his CLI. But this stands out for me now because of the beauty of the words, but because of the moment that it was said in that moment, that moment is hard.

00:31:09--> 00:31:11

When everything is dark around you

00:31:12--> 00:31:46

when you are so broken, so beaten. You see he was beaten on a saucer and even physically it wasn't enough see I can explain to you the moral beating you understand the moral beating three years of boycott loss of husband loss of sorry, loss of life loss of Yanni of his uncle, but now he's even physically beaten. He's bleeding so it's not everything is coming all together. No, at that moment to turn your hands to the sky in any for your interest to be on and as long as you're not upset then everything is fine, little birdie, I don't care. They can do what they want. They want to throw the rock stones they can do what they want. They want to crucify me doesn't make a difference. As long

00:31:46--> 00:31:52

as you're satisfied with me for that nobody that is hard. That takes a heart of gold.

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

That takes a very pure soul or a soul that has been purified.

00:32:01--> 00:32:08

Oh, rephrase a soul that has been purified. When you sit here today with souls that are

00:32:11--> 00:32:26

weighed down with sins that we just don't want to address. But Allah has Kadeem and he's giving us time here no big trials go ahead deal with these problems and you don't you don't deal with the problems and then life hits you

00:32:28--> 00:32:47

hits you like a train. And it brings out all those all the stuff that you knew were there all the arrogance and all the greed and all the all the vanity and all the envy and all the doubts and all the hatred and all the oblivious, all that that you didn't fix it and deal with. It comes out to the surface.

00:32:49--> 00:33:06

It's very sad to see it. It's a sad sight Allah Yeah. And I'll never forget, never forget that day. Sad, sad thing to hear. It's I think to witness people losing their faith. Why? Because I witnessed people not just losing losing their loved ones, but losing their deen and it hurt more to see them losing their Deen. It really did.

00:33:08--> 00:33:09

May Allah have mercy on all of us?

00:33:11--> 00:33:12

So I made this dua

00:33:13--> 00:33:23

low was probably one of the lowest moments of his life. It was right beside He's under a tree right beside maybe 100 or 200 meters away. It's a it's a small Liston.

00:33:24--> 00:33:25

It's like a ranch.

00:33:26--> 00:33:40

It's all walled. And it belongs funny enough to one of the leaders of Borussia Robbia. The Prophet Hassan didn't care at that point. He didn't avoid sitting there because what he already knows or whatever doesn't make a difference anymore. And Aruba

00:33:42--> 00:34:06

because the guy on the horse that a thief, the leaders of Turkey have sent went by his ranch first and told him by the way, your Muhammad the guy from your Yeah, he's here. He's here and if there's going to be a show to watch, I'm on my way to Croatia let them know. So Rosa actually goes on on his on the roof of his house and he watches the Prophet alayhi salatu salam being stoned out of life

00:34:07--> 00:34:10

and it was so painful that I felt bad

00:34:11--> 00:34:15

when his enemies Alia saw to somebody when they witnessed what happened, they felt bad.

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

No, that's not Yeah, I don't like him but you know not not not like that. I mean, that's just not okay. So what he did was he he got some water and some grapes and he sent it with a servant of his to the Prophet It is awesome when you saw the Prophet sites have them sitting under that tree close by.

00:34:36--> 00:34:42

So this servant takes some water and takes takes the grapes. And he goes to the broth, Holly. So it was

00:34:43--> 00:34:47

again, you know the part of the story and that is important to kind of tell

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

this young boy brings the prophit aside to some some water and some grapes of wrath, Faisal said I'd made the DUA and it was tending to the wounds of Zaid and to himself

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

So he brings him a the grapes. So this profit is very thankful.

00:35:07--> 00:35:10

It takes a grape. It says Bismillah needs.

00:35:11--> 00:35:13

This young boy looks Bismillah

00:35:15--> 00:35:18

Bismillah ly the kalam Allah.

00:35:19--> 00:35:23

Ma man, what is this? Bismillah No one says that here.

00:35:25--> 00:35:26

This kid wasn't wasn't from

00:35:27--> 00:35:30

around there. This kid was a foreign kid.

00:35:32--> 00:35:38

And he heard they were Bismillah. He had never heard it in Arabia before. So it caught his attention. So he turned to the Prophet said, What is this?

00:35:39--> 00:35:41

So the profile is awesome, saw the opportunity.

00:35:42--> 00:36:15

See, this is what I mean. At this moment. The Prophet alayhi salam saw opportunity of what? of granting hidayah of granting guidance to someone. Now, he also Rola now later, come back later, go fix your problems first, and then come back, he saw opportunity for guidance now, as he was still bleeding, as he had no result, as he had no solution for his current problem. He's going to get guidance now. And that's exactly what Islam is about. You want Allah to save you, save others.

00:36:16--> 00:36:53

You want Allah to take care of you. Take care of others, don't wait for your affairs to get in line to start helping other people. That's not how life works. And you will not be granted the opportunity and you will continue to procrastinate helping others until the day you die. I'm sorry if this how it works. Islam is based on that. You want Allah to help you to save you to guide you to give you yes then help guide give save other people and this and it will continue to go around. And what you do to others Allah subhanahu grant others to do will send others to do to you and that's how life will work. So the value is awesome saw opportunity for God. Amen. And let's smoke What's

00:36:53--> 00:36:54

your name?

00:36:56--> 00:37:07

For Carla does, his name is that does call Him and He will listen to how how how polite he is and how he speaks.

00:37:09--> 00:37:12

How many times you ask them their name and forgot like 35 seconds later.

00:37:14--> 00:37:17

I am like guilty big time of this problem.

00:37:19--> 00:37:32

I need to stop doing that. I'm asking what's your name? Since I does so he says I'm an AE biller deal early. And yeah, it does. Okay, I just what country do you come from uses his name? See that's,

00:37:33--> 00:37:45

that's smart. Smart has played. He was the person's name. It shows that you care shows that you listen to the answer. It shows that you're not fully self centered. Oh, listen to yourself, as you listen to what they said. So use his name. So where do you come from a does.

00:37:47--> 00:37:54

So he says from Nainoa. I come from Nainoa Nainoa is another word for the city of Mosul in Iraq is an Iraqi kid.

00:37:55--> 00:38:06

Don't ask me how he got here. I don't know. Don't ask me what horrible life situation brought him as a servant to some guy from Croatia. I don't know. You probably don't even want to know why this kid is there. But he's there.

00:38:08--> 00:38:10

He comes from Iraq, come from Wilson.

00:38:11--> 00:38:31

There's a lot of history there. A lot of prophets came through those regions. People there knew they had read sacred books over the centuries, though this kid going up there new things. He came to Arabia, a lot of pagans he will do nothing. But he couldn't say anything to keep to himself. He hears Bismillah he's like, no, what do you mean? Who said Mala Where do you get that from?

00:38:32--> 00:38:37

So he says women they know I'm from a city called Naina with a call and he also says privately some answers him

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

and min Bella Dee and I've decided hey Eunice, if

00:38:43--> 00:38:48

you come from the the country of the great Prophet Yunus sign of metta

00:38:49--> 00:38:51

so now I does his mind is blown for

00:38:53--> 00:38:56

me would have sent me how do you know about us It didn't matter.

00:38:58--> 00:39:15

For Karla and an OB, well who want to be he's my brother, I'm a prophet. He's a prophet of Guru fan Kabbalah. Addison, Allah akademija Rasool Allah who are below whom said Allah. So I just felt his feet to the prophets. I said that his feet and kiss the prophets, I send them his feet and hands, you couldn't stop himself.

00:39:17--> 00:39:18

You know why?

00:39:19--> 00:39:20

Because this poor kid

00:39:21--> 00:39:35

was yanked out of his country, and his parents and his family for years and years and years, living in a foreign land, no connection. And as someone finally recognizes him, or acknowledges him,

00:39:37--> 00:39:59

makes validates his belief validates his homeland validates where he comes from, from moments, for a moment. I'll tell you this personal story. I came in 2013. And towards the end of the year, I don't know if you hold music around the city, Wherever, wherever, wherever. They allowed me to give a hug by winds. My English wasn't as good at the time because I hadn't

00:40:00--> 00:40:17

spoken for, like 10 years or 15 years. My terminology was horrible. It's still not very good. But yeah, he's better than it was. So I was doing all around and I did this hope but at Western, at Western, the MSA there, yeah. And I gave this whole book. And at the end of it, this young man comes to me. And he says, Where are you from?

00:40:19--> 00:41:00

So I told him, I'm from Syria, and he just loses it. He just starts bawling his eyes out, hugging taken for me, I didn't, I had no idea. So this guy, apparently a Syrian. And he had been here for a couple of years you hadn't seen a Syrian for years in school is haven't seen anyone from from around the region that he came from. And I have no idea who this person is. I've never met him before in my life. But I saw this, this, this sorrow in him, this need this need of validation that there's someone like me somewhere, that someone out there still recognizes where I come from, and who I am and my cultural background, and it means something. When you hear people talking about racism in the

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

West, listen to what they have to say. It really, really hurts when you're when you're marginalized, and you're pushed aside and your culture is is destroyed, and people are trying to delete who you are and where you come from. It hurts listen to people who have these experiences. And we have to be the voice of justice for ourselves and for them as well. I'll never forget I and I learned to feel the same way after you had the same

00:41:25--> 00:41:27

experience later in life if you go through something similar.

00:41:29--> 00:41:34

So this does filter the hand in the profit zone would sit him up and ask him what's why you try it and they would talk for a bit

00:41:36--> 00:41:37

Subhan Allah,

00:41:38--> 00:41:49

Allah subhanaw taala as a tiny moment of Didn't you say your up if you're not upset, then I'm fine. But he needs a sign. So Allah says Allah sent this kid,

00:41:50--> 00:42:29

if they were throwing rocks and stones at you, I'll send someone over to kiss your feet. Yatta suit Allah so Allah and the first foreign Muslim in history, I guess. And Nina, we, this I does believe in the Prophet was the first Muslim outside of the outside of Arabia, someone who wasn't a foreign, wasn't a local, he continued to be a Muslim, even till the time of budder where as Qureshi was leaving for burial, he would stand and he would tell them do not go he's Rasulullah you're fighting and I stood Allah, you'll all your this is not that you're going to lose, don't fight him. He is a thriller, and they would quiet him and he would beg his master Autobahn che but don't go, you're

00:42:29--> 00:42:37

going to die if you go this is a thriller. I know. For a fact that they died. I doesn't live long. He died at a young age he got ill and he died with Allah. And

00:42:39--> 00:42:40

so the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.

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

And after this, use the water they washed up the middle do they prayed and they start on their journey back to a time isn't it? They start on the journey back to Mecca, said Allah. Oh my gosh, alright.

00:42:54--> 00:42:55

I'll do it.

00:42:56--> 00:42:58

Let me just tell you this one story, then we'll go.

00:42:59--> 00:43:01

So starting this journey back

00:43:02--> 00:43:14

and it's then where he says Alejo salatu salam when I asked him what was the worst time of your life says I'm not gonna assume and I thought if I didn't call them to update a label for Danny

00:43:15--> 00:43:47

for him to Allah when he when I'm Esther felt a little corny Talib. What he's saying is the worst day of my life was after the people have rejected me. And I'm walking back to Mecca. I have no idea where I'm going. I have no direction. I have no destination. I have no clue what I'm going to do next. I just wandered with Zaid aimlessly until the nights and I found myself in a valley called KordaMentha olive Salalah Hazel I visited them that night. What he would do Alia salatu salam

00:43:49--> 00:43:49

I think we can move

00:43:53--> 00:44:05

so that night Alia start to sound was dealt with. Okay, I'm lame. I'll tell you. I'll tell you one of these stories. I'll leave the next one, the other one for next time. So as he's doing this between the two Raka is you breed out a Salam would come to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam

00:44:06--> 00:44:12

and he will say yeah, Mohammed in the Allah, but the other Salah met a miracle GBL

00:44:13--> 00:44:15

you you're calling okerstrom

00:44:16--> 00:44:44

While you're cool UK, in Europe Becca, can you send me pharmacologically? Tomika will makalah letter co McCulloch? Allah subhanaw taala sends you the angel of the mountains and he sends his Saddam's and he says that he heard what you said to the people have a thought and what the people said back to you for more who we mash it. So command him to do whatever you want him to do. A thought exists between exists between a bunch of mountains so this Mecca

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

so the angel of the mountains and the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he says, Yeah, Muhammad Morrone Ali himolla Chabane give me the telling me and a an earthquake will happen and I will crumble the mountains

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

on both cities, mankind, the people of creation, the people of thought, if, and we'll end it right now for Carlos Salallahu Alaihe Salam, so we answered him Bacala is Allah Who, and you hurry German or slubby him many of kulula

00:45:15--> 00:45:18

This is, again, these lessons.

00:45:20--> 00:45:59

The value of them is when they're happening. It's easy to say this. When you're sitting at home, having sipping your tea, it's easy to say no, no. Let people live when he said that. He also said no, no, don't don't harm them. Maybe one day in the future, maybe one day in the future, their descendants, their great great grandchildren will be some of them will say La Ilaha illa Allah. So let's let them be. You know what I say? I say here we are. That's what I say. I say the Prophet alayhi salatu. Salam said, you know, leave them, leave them maybe some of their great great grandchildren. Later on. We'll come and say La Ilaha illa Allah so here we are. Yeah, we're doing

00:45:59--> 00:46:13

it. We're saying that, you know, hey, Lola, we're probably the descendants of someone who lives somewhere, somewhere back there. Probably everyone here somehow. If you take if you trace it back here, you'll find your lineage going back to there somehow. And you're saying that you know and ALLAH, so this

00:46:14--> 00:46:27

angel the mountain says sadhaka mess America rueful Rahim. Indeed, he was truthful, Allah when he called you the most, the most lenient and the most merciful amongst amongst people. So Allah Hadees Abu salah.

00:46:29--> 00:46:34

The question, what you're left with when you read this story is, that's what he offered to you. So it was seven. So what did we do?

00:46:35--> 00:46:41

That's what he offered, right? That's what he did. That's the effort that he put Salalah Hi, Simon said Now, the question becomes, what did we do?

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

What's our role?

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

What sacrifices have we offered?

00:46:48--> 00:46:55

How do we fit? Where do we fit in all this? Do we fit at all he will continue to climb lane, which is a lesson on his own.

00:46:57--> 00:47:35

The fact that that night he decided that after his aid goes to sleep, he's going to do pm Lane after everything that's happened after the it's a 200 Kilometer walk, complete humiliation he was he's bleached. He's filled with wounds on a hillside twisted and nothing has worked. But every night she stands up, he does his family rally and salatu salam, which is a lesson will lie on his own. And you just talk about that by itself. That the deeper you are, you're buried in this life, the more you you turn to God Subhana wa Tada. The more the harder it is, the more Salah you do, the more difficult is the more Quran the more tests that you do, the closer that you draw yourself to Allah

00:47:35--> 00:47:42

subhanaw taala that's how it works. Things are harder, you're closer to Allah subhanaw taala with your actions, not the opposite, not the opposite.

00:47:43--> 00:47:57

Beware from the opposite. I warned myself I warn you. You were from the opposites. It gets difficult and then you start getting farther and farther from God. No, no, no, no. That means there's a problem in the way you understood this whole deal to begin with. It gets harder you get closer.

00:47:59--> 00:48:07

It's harder, put your head down onto God even longer. As long as you need to the Prophet Abraham did that. And he's standing there and he's reading Quran.

00:48:09--> 00:48:12

And Allah subhanaw taala sends over some of the jinn

00:48:13--> 00:48:30

these Jin witnessed what just happened. They witnessed what happened to him, Allah saw to them they witnessed how he was responded to they witnessed how he was humiliated. And now they're watching this man pray all night. Like me, they are in complete awe of his personality. So they're listening to every word, he is reciting.

00:48:31--> 00:48:50

They're listening to the Quran, they're listening very deeply. They're taking everything that they can and it'll take that and they'll go and take it to his to their people. They'll take the Quran and go start telling the other Jinn about Quran and teaching them about Islam the Prophet Allah is awesome heard nothing of this he had no idea this happened without him even knowing

00:48:52--> 00:49:29

up will come later and recite to him with sawed off ileka Now for a minute Jimmy YES time your own Al Quran we sent to you a few of the gin listen to the Quran, but um How about all one day when they witnessed it? Call your own see to everyone listen quietly. But I'm only when you finish reciting what you're reciting well lo Illa call me he moved in they went to their people to warn them called a woman I said oh are people in Samia Nikita been New Zealand embody Musa and DB heard a book that was revealed after Musa Musa Lima in a day exactly like what Musa was teaching? Yeah, do you eat and it will take you to the righteous path where you can muster team

00:49:30--> 00:49:40

Yeah, Coleman a G Buddha, yellow and people listen and respond to the person who was calling for Allah subhanho wa Taala da yo Allah, the One who's calling come to Allah, listen to him.

00:49:41--> 00:49:45

Well, I mean, it would be him believe in him. You have a federal law come in the Rubicon with your community.

00:49:46--> 00:49:48

All right. Here's the point that I'll make before we go.

00:49:51--> 00:49:53

The Prophet Alia site was down here.

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

All right. The property is listed. I'm going to give Dawa to humans

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

But Allah subhanaw taala wanted the jinn to accept Islam during that period. The Prophet it has led to Sudan wanted the royalty of life.

00:50:09--> 00:50:11

But Allah subhanaw taala wanted us to accept Islam.

00:50:12--> 00:50:19

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted the city of a desolate city, he wanted to protect him. But Allah subhanaw taala wanted yesterday, Medina.

00:50:21--> 00:51:01

You can only plan and do your best. And things will move in life the way Allah subhanaw taala wants them to. You can't control everything. Stop trying to control everything. Well, it's a it's a burden that you'll lift off your shoulders. When you stop trying to play God. It's not your thing. He controls subhanaw taala you just try your best. The Prophet Allah saw some went and performed direct Dawa to the people and five and they refused. And then Jin believed him without even him speaking to them. It wasn't direct dial, he didn't speak to them and explain things he just recited. But he didn't even know what's happening. He offered guidance for a race a completely different species.

00:51:02--> 00:51:03

Didn't even know it.

00:51:04--> 00:51:25

He just did his thing on his understanding of irony in this, but that's fate. And that's destiny. And that's how the world works. And Alex thought the same understood that so he just did his part. Just did his job did the best he could. didn't object kept on moving forward, never lost hope never stopped trying his best allele salatu salam

00:51:27--> 00:51:54

See his name. We know his name. I don't care about the new year, you'll never know that. If I asked you next, you should ask them next. halacha the name of the three guys who misspoke to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam no one knows and to be honest, no one cares. But you'll never forget this.

00:51:55--> 00:52:27

That's the Allah that's that's the work of Allah subhanaw taala You can want what you want, you can aim for what you want, you can you can go for what you want, but then Allah subhanaw will give you the hand that he wills so take it and play the best play the best you can be the best you can with what you've got and accept it and move forward.
